SPECIAL INFORMATION FOR BULL SHOALS

A  new brand of smartphones defy Samsung and Apple

We know that Samsung is the largest manufacturer in the world of smart phones, and Apple is number two. But, do you have any idea who is the third largest is?

¿Lenovo? ¿LG? Nokia nosing? ¿Sony? No, no, no and no. It is a Chinese company called Xiaomi.

If you´ve never heard of Xiaomi, you can soon do it.

Xiaomi raised 1,100 million dollars in funding from some of the most powerful players in the high tech industry. That gives the company a value of $ 45,000 million - larger than LG, Motorola and Sony together. Xiaomi is now the new world´s most valuable company, even more than Uber, Airbnb and Pinterest.

Xiaomi is also the smartphone maker´s fastest growing company. Its sales soared 211% to more than 17 million smartphones in the third quarter of 2014 - a little less than half the number of iPhones that Apple sold, according to IDC.

Xiaomi participation in the market more than doubled to just over 5%. A year ago, was only 2% of the market.

The smartphone maker in China rose so fast with that focused on China and some nearby high-growth countries. Xiaomi is now the number two brand smartphones in China (behind only Samsung), and recently began selling phones in Indonesia, Mexico, Russia, Thailand and Turkey.

Xiaomi arrived in growth markets by storm, offering super low price phones online sales only. The magnificent smartphone E4 company debuted in August, designed to be at home the iPhone killer.  Its design almost exactly like the iPhone, helps.

The company has a unique business model: not even about making money with their phones $ 130, which sells at cost. Most of the proceeds from the sale of accessories and applications.

Xiaomi also has a knack for marketing, advertising campaigns have attracted a massive group of very loyal fans in China.

"We will strive to continually bring innovation to everyone, with a goal of producing high-quality, high-performance devices with great user experience," said Bin Lin, founder of Xiaomi, in a Facebook message Monday . "In January 2015, we will launch our next flagship device".

The big question for Xiaomi is whether it can grow beyond the countries where it already sells phones. For example, could Xiaomi shake the US smartphone market, which is dominated by Samsung and Apple?

Chinese manufacturers of smartphones have not exactly been welcome in the United States. None of the major national competitors Xiaomi -Lenovo, Yulong and Huawei- have made no progress in America.

For most of the past decade, Nokia was the world leader in sales of cell phones without a significant presence in the United States. LG, Sony and many others have found international success, but failed to gain traction on US soil.

Xiaomi has no plans to sell phones in the United States. But when that day comes, he will face his greatest challenge.

How can consumers in BULL SHOALS be sure a genetic test is valid and useful?

Before undergoing genetic testing, it is important to be sure that the test is valid and useful. A genetic test is valid if it provides an accurate result. Two main measures of accuracy apply to genetic tests: analytical validity and clinical validity. Another measure of the quality of a genetic test is its usefulness, or clinical utility.

  • Analytical validity refers to how well the test predicts the presence or absence of a particular gene or genetic change. In other words, can the test accurately detect whether a specific genetic variant is present or absent?

  • Clinical validity refers to how well the genetic variant being analyzed is related to the presence, absence, or risk of a specific disease.

  • Clinical utility refers to whether the test can provide information about diagnosis, treatment, management, or prevention of a disease that will be helpful to a consumer.

All laboratories that perform health-related testing, including genetic testing, are subject to federal regulatory standards called the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) or even stricter state requirements. CLIA standards cover how tests are performed, the qualifications of laboratory personnel, and quality control and testing procedures for each laboratory. By controlling the quality of laboratory practices, CLIA standards are designed to ensure the analytical validity of genetic tests.

CLIA standards do not address the clinical validity or clinical utility of genetic tests. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires information about clinical validity for some genetic tests. Additionally, the state of New York requires information on clinical validity for all laboratory tests performed for people living in that state. Consumers, health providers, and health insurance companies are often the ones who determine the clinical utility of a genetic test.

It can be difficult to determine the quality of a genetic test sold directly to the public. Some providers of direct-to-consumer genetic tests are not CLIA-certified, so it can be difficult to tell whether their tests are valid. If providers of direct-to-consumer genetic tests offer easy-to-understand information about the scientific basis of their tests, it can help consumers make more informed decisions. It may also be helpful to discuss any concerns with a health professional before ordering a direct-to-consumer genetic test.

In BULL SHOALS: Understanding Links Between Smoking & Weight

Maybe you quit smoking to do something good for your health, and now you’ve noticed the pounds adding up on the scale. Or maybe one of the reasons you’re not quite ready to quit is that you’re afraid of gaining weight.

Here are some of the reasons why some people gain weight when they quit:

  • Smoking lowers your appetite.
    Smoking cigarettes makes you feel less hungry. So, when you quit smoking, you might feel hungrier and then eat more than you used to eat.  
  • Smoking increases your metabolism.
    Smoking cigarettes increases your metabolism, so you burn more calories. So when you stop smoking, you may burn fewer calories which can lead to weight gain. 
  • Eating can be a substitute for smoking.
    Smoking gave you something to do with your hands and something to put in your mouth. For a lot of people, food replaces cigarettes. And the more you reach for food, the more likely it is that you will gain weight.
  • Eating may soothe the feelings that smoking used to soothe.
    Maybe smoking was your go-to when you were feeling bad. When you stop smoking, you may find that you turn to eating to feel better or to deal with stress—but this can backfire and result in weight gain.

The good news is that you can take charge of your weight even while quitting smoking. Check out Forever Free for more info about smoking and weight.
