God Already Knows

 by

Joseph

Humans have a natural tendency to feel disappointed when things seem to be going against us, often times expressing it through complaints and anger. But that only adds to the sense of helplessness and disappointment we're already feeling.

There is a famous story in Numbers 11 where the Israelites complained against God about the lack of variety in their diet. God provided the people with manna which is a nutritious bread, it fell from the sky and the people were instructed to gather it up six days a week.

But after a while the Israelites grew tired of the manna and complained and wailed outside Moses' tent saying that they had better food back in Egypt. Moses, for his part, complained to God about the people's grumbling and went so far as to say that God should just kill him:

"Why have you brought this trouble on your servant? What have I done to displease you that you put the burden of all these people on me? 12Did I conceive all these people? Did I give them birth? Why do you tell me to carry them in my arms, as a nurse carries an infant, to the land you promised on oath to their ancestors? 13Where can I get meat for all these people? They keep wailing to me, ‘Give us meat to eat!’ 14I cannot carry all these people by myself; the burden is too heavy for me. 15If this is how you are going to treat me, please go ahead and kill me—if I have found favor in your eyes—and do not let me face my own ruin."  

This made for a very tense situation. I could imagine the people grumbling and complaining about their daily bread, Moses' agitated complaints to God about the ingratitude of the masses and God's anger about the entire situation.

God responded by saying to Moses "16 “Bring me seventy of Israel’s elders who are known to you as leaders and officials among the people. Have them come to the tent of meeting, that they may stand there with you. 17I will come down and speak with you there, and I will take some of the power of the Spirit that is on you and put it on them. They will share the burden of the people with you so that you will not have to carry it alone.

18“Tell the people: ‘Consecrate yourselves in preparation for tomorrow, when you will eat meat. The Lord heard you when you wailed, “If only we had meat to eat! We were better off in Egypt!” Now the Lord will give you meat, and you will eat it. 19You will not eat it for just one day, or two days, or five, ten or twenty days, 20but for a whole month—until it comes out of your nostrils and you loathe it—because you have rejected the Lord, who is among you, and have wailed before him, saying, “Why did we ever leave Egypt?” ’ ”

21But Moses said, “Here I am among six hundred thousand men on foot, and you say, ‘I will give them meat to eat for a whole month!’ 22Would they have enough if flocks and herds were slaughtered for them? Would they have enough if all the fish in the sea were caught for them?”

23The Lord answered Moses, “Is the Lord’s arm too short? Now you will see whether or not what I say will come true for you.”

24So Moses went out and told the people what the Lord had said."

It appeared that God was going to give the people exactly what they wanted because He sent quail in from the sea but there was a caveat: "31Now a wind went out from the Lord and drove quail in from the sea. It scattered them up to two cubits deep all around the camp, as far as a day’s walk in any direction. 32All that day and night and all the next day the people went out and gathered quail. No one gathered less than ten homers. Then they spread them out all around the camp. 33But while the meat was still between their teeth and before it could be consumed, the anger of the Lord burned against the people, and he struck them with a severe plague. 34Therefore the place was named Kibroth Hattaavah,because there they buried the people who had craved other food."

The Israelites' complaint was a challenge to God and He met it accordingly.

This isn't to say that we have no right to express our grievances and unhappiness about bad situations. In 1 Peter 5:7 the apostle tells us to "cast all of our anxiety before the Lord for He cares for you."

God wants us to tell Him about what ails us. Asaph did it in Psalm 73 wherein he expressed his sadness about wicked people seemingly getting ahead in life while good righteous people appear to get the short end of the stick.

Habakkuk, an old Testament prophet had a long talk with God about the problems the righteous face (Habakkuk 1 - 3) . He felt dismayed about what he perceived as evil being allowed to profit at the expense of the righteous. The prophet was right in talking to God, he did it in a respectful way in contrast to the Israelites who were ungrateful for what God was providing for them.

 

Comfort In Our Troubles

I recall how a daughter of God went through great travails but didn't complain. She looked forward with hope to better things and even as her situation grew more serious she held out hope for God and for the words that Peter had said in 1 Peter 5:7.

With all that was going on around her, though there were a few times in which she did seem very sad, she did not rail her fists at God nor wail and cry out or scream. Instead she felt peace in knowing God was with her. God sent the Comforter to her and also blessed her to be with her ever loving children whom she also loves so that she would be okay. This daughter of God also had the support of her many friends who love her.

And in time when God called her spirit home to forever be with Him in heaven she went peacefully in gentle sleep and her children were there and know that her example is a good one. For God does remember and watches and will do His work all the time. (“If you belong to Christ, then you are Abram’s seed and heirs according to the promise.” Galatians 3:29)

The daughter of God set a good example for her children who are also children of God and all of them have the promise that they all will be reunited in heaven and to do the work of the Lord there for where God is, she is and her children will be in time.

The world is a stressful place. We often make plans and when they don't come to fruition, we get the urge to grumble and complain. But we must be careful to not fall into a sense of entitlement thinking that God owes us something.

He doesn't.

We must remember that we belong to God. We are His creation and He will do as He sees fit.

God watches us all the time, nothing is beyond His notice. We must be patient and wait on Him. Because God is compassionate:"The LORD is compassionate and merciful; he is patient and demonstrates great loyal love." Psalm 103 (verse 8).

God knows about our pain: "“The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” (Psalm 34:18)"

God welcomes our sincere complaints: "A prayer of the afflicted when he is faint and pours out his complaint before the Lord." Psalm 102:25-27

God is faithful: “Faithful is He who calls you, and He will also bring it to pass.” Thessalonians 5:24

And God knows what He is doing: "For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

So the next time you feel downhearted and feel the urge to complain remember that God already knows.

Fish Make The Greatest Pets

Fish Make The Greatest Pets

Fish Make The Greatest Pets

By: Jennifer Shircel

Aren't the children always begging for a pet or another pet?

You don't want a cat - there's that whole litter box thing. You don't want to train a puppy, plus what about when you want to go away for the night? Birds make such a mess and can be quite noisy. And then there's those "rodent" things.

When we found out we were expecting our first child we decided to decorate the nursery in tropical fish decor. Then we thought a fish tank in the room would be perfect for the "white noise" and for a nice little night light. So we bought a 10 gallon tank set that cost about $40 for everything but the fish. We had no clue about caring for fish, so we only got a few fancy guppies that were about $3 each. How cheap!!

Who knew we'd become addicted? Well, me anyways. We learned that guppies are live bearers, meaning that they have "live" babies instead of laying eggs and they can be all sorts of pretty colors. Needless to say, we learned a few things about raising guppies and haven't spent any more money buying fish (well, except for a few more different colored guppies and a bigger tank to start breeding our own)!

Fish are so easy to take care of and are rather inexpensive to keep. We clean out their tank a little bit each month and spend about $2 on food for them that lasts about 3 months. The kids all love the guppies - their pretty colors and especially watching the babies grow. I love the guppies because they're cheap, relaxing, neat, quiet and they teach the children about responsibility with having a pet.

So before you jump down their throats about not having a pet, tell the kids to consider some guppies. If you're looking to do some more research on them, check out www.guppies.com . There are plenty of tips and people there that are willing to answer all of your questions.

Outsource Staffing to Meet Your Increasing Business Needs

Outsource staffing is an effort made by outsourcing companies to provide you and your company with just the perfect employee capable of doing your work to help you run your business smoothly and perfectly. To run any organization successfully and efficiently it is very important to choose the right people who can do the required work. Well it is correctly said that a company or an organization is as good as its people. So choosing the man power who will work for a company is as crucial as selecting any other major component of a business. Business owners must make an extra effort to select the best people to work for them.

On the whole staffing process, that is selecting the right staff and training them to do the work for a business is a time consuming and exhaustive process. Outsource staffing is a simple means for you to be free from all staffing worries. It requires a lot of effort, time, planning and other resources for an organization to go about hiring the best staffing services. Outsourcing staff is the best and the most viable option for any firm to select and hire the services of the best people to work for them.

One of the main benefits of outsource staffing is that you can save lots of money, time and other resources. Most businesses and companies have many time consuming and complicated jobs to take care of for running their business successfully. So in such a scenario outsourcing staff becomes the best option. You can also save huge amounts of money if you outsource staff from outsourcing companies. The cost of labor in developing countries is very low and when professionals do the outsourcing work from developing countries, the work can actually be done at a much lower rate.

Once you have outsourced the staff of your business you can also have lots of time at your disposal. This becomes possible as outsourcing lets you free up your valuable time. The professionals who have freed up from the workload can deal with other important business deals. Also all the other important sectors of your business can be dealt with as the internal staff can be freed up.

One thing that has been noticed in most businesses is the fact that professionals switch jobs very frequently. This has a very negative effect on any business. After a professional has been hired and trained to do particular types of work, they leave the organization. This means the loss of time money and all the other resources that was used for training the professional to work according to company standards. So the next time you want to hire new professionals think about all these aspects and you can find outsourcing staff to be a better option for your business.

Whether to outsource staff or not is entirely your decision and no one can force you to decide on anything. So before you actually go about outsource staffing you must find out if this will benefit your business or not. After you have undertaken the process for your business, at anytime you find that you are not satisfied with the work done, you can simply take back the work and let someone else do the thing for you. There are plenty of outsourcing companies form which you can hire the outsourcing services.

10 Healthy Snacks For Work - Each Under 200 Calories

10 Healthy Snacks For Work - Each Under 200 Calories

10 Healthy Snacks For Work - Each Under 200 Calories
By Gregory L Gomez

Oh those tasty snacks. The little treats that for many are thorns in the side and continually contribute to the inability to drop the excess weight. Many people often overlook the damage not having healthy snacks for work can cause but it is something that definitely needs to be taken into account.

Snacks are an important part of daily nutrition, however far too often when hunger between meals arises, many people opt to choose an unhealthy way to satisfy their appetite. This usually means a soda pop and bag of potato chips or a candy bar, all of which are not healthy contributions to the body.

Get In The Habit Of Taking Healthy Snacks For Work With You Daily

The reason why these types of snacks are so popular is because they are plastered everywhere we go - the corner convenience store, supermarkets, gas stations, work cafeteria, even those pesky vending machines. Worse yet, once we find spots with the snacks and drinks we like, it often becomes a regular habit that may be hard to break.

Did you know if you were to cut out just one soda or glass of juice a day, that alone would help you get rid of 1,800 calories per week or 26 pounds a year!?!

And that's just from eliminating one soda/juice per day! Imagine what you could lose if you got rid of all the other unhealthy snacks from your repertoire.

Stick with the idea that healthy snacks for work should each be under 200 calories. Your snack should be nowhere near the total calorie count of an entire meal. It's something that should be small enough to tide you over until your next main meal but be nutritious also.

Making Healthy Snacks For Work Does Not Take Much Time - Less Than 5 Minutes!

The reason why snacks are important is to keep your body nourished and your metabolism going. This helps keep you from going into "starvation mode" where you start craving anything and everything that crosses your path. If you get to the point where your stomach is growling for food, then you've gone too long without nourishment and you may likely overeat at your next meal.

Prevent this from happening by planning out your healthy snacks for work. It doesn't take a lot of time if you just stick with snacks that are simple, yet nutritious. Just be sure to add these items to your shopping list so the next time you go for groceries you will purchase these healthy options.

10 Healthy Snacks For Work, Each Under 200 Calories

Here are 10 healthy snacks for work. Enjoy a bottle/glass of water and you will have the ideal amount to tide you over until your next main meal.

1. Almonds with raisins
2. Celery sticks with peanut butter
3. Rice cake with peanut butter or honey
4. Carrots with light ranch dressing
5. Hummus with whole wheat pita pocket
6. Yogurt with 1/4 cup of granola or grape nuts
7. Mozzarella string cheese with 5 whole wheat crackers
8. Fruits: most are only 100 calories each! Take your pick apples, oranges, bananas, peaches, strawberries, grapes, melon, raspberries, watermelon, cantaloupe, cherries, etc.
9. Granola bars: wide selection and varieties
10. 1/2 whole wheat bagel with peanut butter or honey

Hopefully these 10 ideas have inspired you to start creating your own healthy snacks for work so you will never have to resort to making unhealthy vending machine purchases on your break. Remember, maintaining a healthy life is a culmination of many small decisions made throughout your day. Snacks are definitely included in these decisions. Prepare yourself and you will have healthy snacks for work making it one step closer to a healthy life.

Three Most Common Causes For Low Blood Pressure

Three Most Common Causes For Low Blood Pressure

Three Most Common Causes For Low Blood Pressure
By Dr. Dorothy Adamiak, ND

Poor circulation and low blood pressure is more common than generally believed. As health practitioners and patients keep focusing on hypertension, hypotension is usually overlooked or dismissed. Yet, many of us may be experiencing blood pressure dips without being aware of it.

Sporadic bouts of fatigue, chronic exhaustion, frequent yawning, daytime sleepiness, mental dullness, poor memory and even brittle nails all may be signs of insufficient circulation.

The causes of hypotension may vary from person to person and depend on genetic, environmental and circumstantial factors. However, many of those can be controlled, provided that the individual is aware of them. Here is a list of just three most common controllable causes for low blood pressure.

    • Dehydration: Experts say that one should drink 8 glasses of water a day, yet despite this straightforward advice we frequently end up below the guidelines. It is because many of us rely solely on the sense of thirst. Yet, thirst has been found to be consistently unreliable. It simply cannot be used as a hydration gauge.

 

    • Nutritional deficiency: Everyone knows that nutrition is a very important determinant of health. Heart cannot pump without energy and blood cannot flow without being propelled. For that you need nutrients, and lots of them. Yet, a multivitamin won`t do in this case as crucial macronutrients for blood flow must come from food, not from pills. Among the most vital circulatory macronutrients are: sugars, electrolytes, and protein. These three are responsible for increasing blood pressure.

 

  • Adrenal fatigue: Stress, worry, and grief are very hard on the body and if prolonged they may lead to adrenal fatigue or even adrenal exhaustion. Fatigued adrenals alter production of hormones and neurotransmitters which in turn cause changes in the blood flow. Adrenal fatigue is largely an under-recognized phenomenon, although its extreme form called Addison`s disease is a well-known to health practitioners reason for chronic hypotension.

The above conditions are three most common reasons for low blood pressure. Fortunately, they are also easily reversible, especially if one works with a qualified health care provider that is capable of detecting the causes, determining the needs, and also the one that will be assessing the progress.

Causes for hypotention however, are not limited only to dehydration, nutritional deficiencies, and adrenal fatigue. There are also other reasons. Among them are: hidden blood loss, anemia, nervous system failure, dysautonomia, food sensitivities, POTS, and others. Regardless of the underlying reasons follow these four simple circulatory boosters below, so you can experience an immediate improvement in your well-being:

    • Keep on drinking plenty of water and if possible drink it extra cold. Cold water has been shown to boost circulation to the same degree as coffee does.

 

    • Do not skip meals; low blood sugar that results from non-eating can contribute to hypotension

 

    • Add a pinch of salt to food; sodium lost during digestion and sweat must be replaced. Insufficient sodium contributes to low blood pressure and chronic fatigue

 

  • Adjust your diet to support adrenals; adrenals need large quantities of vitamin C. Add oranges, grapefruit, kiwis, and lemon to your diet to ensure a good supply of this nutrient.

Tips On Moving Pets

Tips On Moving Pets

Tips On Moving Pets

By: Paul Wilson

A pet like a child is a great responsibility and the animal or bird is dependant on you to care for it and protect it. And if a move is stressful for children the pressure is ten -fold for a pet that cannot quite comprehend what is happening. Often a house filled with strangers, boxes, and din is not just frightening for a pet it can be quite intimidating.

Before you move you must:

  • Take the pet to the vet and check whether his health will stand the move. Ask the vet about preventive health care and whether the pet will require any vaccinations.

     

  • Make a file containing the pet's health records and registration details.

     

  • Pack all personal possessions belonging to the pet in an easily identifiable box.

     

  • Set aside things the pet will need while traveling and when you reach your destination.

     

  • Find out what the law regarding pets is in your new town or area. Ask about whether dogs or pets are allowed in your new home or apartment block and whether you need to apply for new registrations or permits.

     

  • Do a bit of research and locate a new vet in your new home. Choose one recommended by your old vet but make sure he suits your needs.

     

  • If you are moving fairly close then consider driving down with your pet and kids. Otherwise you will need to take care of details like flying with pets and the rules that apply.

     

  • While the movers are in the home packing or unpacking either keep the pet close to you or in a separate room in a crate with a few toys and plenty of water. Of course if you crate the pet you will need to remember to release him and take him for a walk ever so often.

     

  • If the move requires an overnight stop then choose a hotel that welcomes pets. This makes the move much easier on the pet as dealing with wary strangers can add to the stress.

     

  • Always carry an old sheet, a few toys, medicines, medical files, water for drinking, a little food, a sponge, plenty of plastic bags, paper towels, and a crate, cage, or leash. If it is fish you are transporting then you will need special containers sold by aquariums.

     

  • Get the pet a new Id tag and microchip in case he gets lost.

     

  • If you are nervous about transporting your pet there are professionals who will undertake to do the job for you.

     

  • In case you are moving to a new country and the climate is not suitable for your pet then consider finding the pet a new home. It is kinder than killing the pet.

     

While transporting pets remember that you cannot ship them in moving vans. And, except for "seeing eye" dogs pets are not allowed on buses and trains. So, you will either have to take your pet by plane or by car. If your pet appears agitated ask the vet to prescribe a sedative. Check carefully about interstate health certificates and vaccination requirements. Be a vigilant pet-parent and find out all the pros and cons of moving a pet well before the actual moving date.

Wood Counter Tops, a Consistent Choice for Modern Kitchens

Wood Counter Tops, a Consistent Choice for Modern Kitchens

Wood Counter Tops, a Consistent Choice for Modern Kitchens

By: Adrian Laza

Wood countertops are becoming popular again in modern kitchens. We now know that wooden countertops, when properly cared for, are both long lasting and sanitary. The modern adhesives are strong enough to keep the wood staves bonded together even the butcher block is submerged into the water. The finishing oils (mineral oils) are safe in contact with food products and preserve the wood surfaces.

The solid wood, as a material of choice for counter tops, exhibits incontestable advantages such as:

Aesthetics
Imparting a warm, relaxing feeling, the wooden top is the natural complement of any solid wood or veneered cabinetry. The wooden tops will wonderfully go together with hardwood floorings, moldings, cornices and mantels, conferring a genuine sense of balance to your kitchen space.

Functionality
A hardwood top is very easy to cut to templates and even easier to install. Unlike the solid surface or laminate, wood tops have a minimum of chemical components, which make them extremely safe in contact with foods. Unlike the other countertop materials, any occurring scratch can be easily removed by sanding the area; the wood tops actually constitute the only known surface that can be renewed without employing special tools or requiring special skills. Hardwood surfaces can be used as kitchen island tops, inserted sink covers, sections of countertop, or as butcher block hidden under the countertop that can be pulled as drawer or cart. Your imagination will surely find plenty of other interesting, visually attractive applications.

Durability
If properly sealed and installed, a wooden top can literally last a lifetime. Unlike marble, granite or tile, the wooden tops have a great shock absorbing capacity that further assures considerable life span.

Hygiene
For a quite few decades, the plastic and laminate surfaces, due to their non-porous structure were considered much safer than wood for applications such as chopping meat or slicing vegetables. The wood, because of its porosity was thought an ideal surface for harmful bacteria like Salmonella, Staphylococus or Escherichia coli to thrive. However, a study undertaken in 1993 by the microbiologists of Wisconsin Food Research Institute and another one carried out in 1998 at university of Florida discovered the strong antibacterial properties that wood surfaces exhibit, properties that no other cutting surface appears to possess.

According to these studies and to others that followed them, on wood surfaces, bacterial populations disappear quite fast, without external intervention, while on plastic surfaces they persist and actually multiply. Although these properties vary among wood species, the wooden cutting surfaces are increasingly accepted as the first choice of health-conscious individuals.

Price
Hardwood is usually priced higher than laminate but are far less expensive than stone, granite, solid surface, tile or steel.

The butcher block counter tops supplied by Lafor Wood Products (www.hardwoodcountertops.com) come in beech wood, cherry, walnut, oak, whitebeam (hickory look), acacia (black locust) or hard maple with a large variety of dimensions and grades. Mineral oil is supplied for free along to the purchase and helps to finish and preserve the butcher blocks. Availability is immediate and they offer samples of butcher blocks free of charge.

How Exercise Helps in Better Sleep

How Exercise Helps in Better Sleep

Submitted by: Kya Grace

If you are leading a sedentary lifestyle and wondering why you are not getting enough sleep at night, the reason is pretty simple. Your body is not tired enough to go into sleep mode. Only when your body is subjected to hours of work and effort, it will need rest. Often it is desirable to overcome the need for sleep. To do that, you surely know how the stimulating effect of caffeine in your coffee promotes alertness and keeps you awake. However, there is no such direct solution if your problem is reversed to the point of not having enough sleep despite the need for it. Sleeping pills induce artificial sleep in you and only help in the short term with no proper remedy. The consumption of sleeping pills from day to day can build a vicious cycle of fatigue.

The most common cause of sleep disturbance is too little activity during the day. But in some cases even after the daily physical or mental exertion, you could be agonizingly awake. In extreme cases, it is a kind of insomnia. One side of you tries to sleep; the other keeps you from doing so. Often people affected do not sleep all night and are then particularly uncomfortable the next day. The day could seem very boring and burdensome if you don’t have enough sleep the previous night.

People affected by sleeping disorders are known to have a much higher risk of becoming chronically manic or depressive. Therefore, before it reaches a point when you have no other option but to seek medical help, workouts and exercises can be an easy and homely solution for your sleeping needs. Today exercises mostly follow a holistic approach to body, mind and soul to get in line. Such exercises and workouts combined with phases of deep relaxation, breathing exercises and meditation exercises help you achieve engaging slumber at night.

Exercises let you work on your fitness issues as well as your stress problems. Working out has had soothing and balancing effects on many people, and thus their sleeping disorders have been countered. Only a mind in the right frame and a body in the right shape can enjoy blissful sleep. By exercising, the muscular endurance, flexibility and balance of your body are enhanced.

Bodily application comes through the activation of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and blood and lymph vessels to improve blood circulation. The back muscles are strengthened, resulting in improved posture during sleep. However, overloading or incorrectly performed exercises can also be harmful. So only work out as much as you can and as much you need.

Sleep, as we all know, is the best form of repose and relaxation for the human body. The so-called internal biological clock of your body calibrates itself to the day/night cycle and regulates your sleeping needs. So help yourself by following a simple daily 15-20 minute workout regime. The positive effects will be manifested when you rise and shine every morning after a splendid night’s sleep.

10 Keys to Guaranteed Success in Negotiations

10 Keys to Guaranteed Success in Negotiations

10 Keys to Guaranteed Success in Negotiations

By: Paul Wilson

Negotiating is a skill that like warfare tactics must be honed. It is important to be mentally prepared to win. Do the ground work well before your reach the negotiating table and decide on the "path" you are going to take. Positivity will help as also a sense of confidence and self esteem. Set aside any doubts you may have and stride forward prepared to win at all costs.

The five cornerstones of successful negotiation skills are placing emphasis on common points; presenting clear arguments; being innovative and open to several options; focusing on the problem being dealt with; looking for a clear solution. The key is to be clear about your preferred outcome. However in the back of your mind you must be willing to compromise to some extent.

A good negotiator is an excellent communicator and understands how human beings think, feel, and function. You must be able to befriend the people seated on the other side of the negotiating table. You must know when to push hard, when to accept a compromise, and when to walk away. A negotiator is in many ways an artist he needs a great amount of creativity to steer the negotiations to a successful completion. A negotiator must keep in mind the 3Fs: fair, fast, and firm.

According to the gurus there are tactics to be used for negotiating:

1. Be focused on the problem or issue. Logical arguments are the key to smooth negotiations.

2. It is important to be firm yet polite when making a stand or presenting a point.

3. Clearly emphasize the advantages and disadvantages.

4. Be patient and let the process of negotiation take its course.

5. Put ego aside and concentrate on the matter at hand. It is finding an amiable solution that's important not self worth or position.

6. Never threaten or manipulate the opposite party-it is completely unethical and unfair.

7. Aim for solutions that are interest based and not what individual desires or aims are. It is best to consider any situation as a whole rather than from a personal view point.

8. Avoid psychological traps and have the magnanimity to admit when you are wrong. Be open minded.

9. Don't accept weak solutions and try and negotiate a plausible settlement. Temporary measures are not what you need. A permanent solution must be sought.

10. Value time, schedules, and deadlines. A good negotiator will not beat around the bush or adopt delay tactics or waste time talking about mundane matters. It is professional to immediately get down to the business at hand.

Most human beings are born negotiators. From the first breath a baby takes it makes all around him dance to his tunes. Most of us consciously or unconsciously do what we have to do to get our own way in life. And, if we look closely it is just mastering the art of negotiation.

What Are Clinical Trials?


Clinical trials are research studies to determine whether investigational drugs or treatments are safe and effective for humans.

All investigational devices and medicines must undergo several clinical trials, often times these clinical trials require thousands of people.

Why participate in a clinical trial?

People whom are eligible will have access to new investigational treatments that would be available to the general public only upon approval.

People whom are eligible for clinical trials will also receive study-related medical care and attention from clinical staff at research facilities.

Clinical trials offer hope for many people and gives researchers a chance to find better treatment for others in the future.
