Acomplia Diet Pills


Sanofi-Synthelabo, a French Pharmaceutical Company created Rimonabant (Acomplia and possibly Zimulti) which is a new drug treatment for obesity and possibly other ailments.
This diet pill was officially approved in Britain on June 28th 2006, which could lead the way to having the FDA approve it in the United States by mid summer, 2007.But no guarantees, The FDA has strick policies regarding new medications on the market. Acomplia (Rimonabant or Zimulti) diet pills offer hope for obese individuals, especially where other treatments had little affect or the side effects where too much to handle. This medication (as any) obviously does not come without some potential side effects.
Rimonabant works differently than other weight-loss pills, and has other potential benefits. Studies also show that it increases levels of HDL (good cholesterol) while at the same time reducing LDL (bad cholesterol). It could also possibly be used for smoking cessation, although not officially approved for that purpose (yet). Basically, Rimonabant suppresses ones appetite.It works by blocking a cellular receptor in the endocannabinoid system of the brain, believed to influence the regulation of body weight, glucose, and fat metabolism. In doing so it is believed that this regulation then reduces the craving to eat more.

Clinical Studies have shown that 33% of people taking Rimonabant lost 10% of body weight and kept their weight down for two years which is extremely newsworthy as no other diet drug has accomplished this for so long a period.
It also holds huge potential for the people wanting to kick the smoking habit and ‘may’ help curb other substance addictions such as cocaine, marijuana, and alcohol.
While FDA held up Sanofi’s diet drug Rimonabant(Acomplia/Zimulti),the Merck’s MK-0364(Taranbant) is currently in phase-3 which is as effective for weight loss as rimonabant having some side effects.
The interim results of phase-3 trial of Taranabant have not been reported by the Merck.These results could be different from the anecdotal report. In the trial it was found that the weight loss pill was well tolerated in extensive phase-2.The Merck is looking forward FDA approval for it next year.
Pfizer, which also contains CB-1 receptor antagonist in phase-3 trials has not moved forward with a name which is known as CP-945598.
In June, 2007 there will be a meeting of FDA advisory panel on rimonabant about the safety issues of drugs which affect receptors in the brain.If you are interested in trying this diet pill i recommend the original site from where you can buy rimonabant and many other weight loss pills.

Social Networking


Social Networking has become increasingly popular as there are lots of sites that emerged in last 7 years offering this service. Facebook, Orkut, MySpace, and Friendster are some of the most popular social networking sites. The aim of these sites is to build communities of people who share common interests and activities. Those who are interested in exploring the interests and activities of others are also using these websites.

There are some people who believe in the myth of individualism in which everyone succeeds or fails on the basis of an individuals own abilities and efforts. However research shows that having a strong social network increases the chance of getting a job, pay and promotion, influence and effectiveness, etc.

There are huge numbers of networks people belongs to whereby people can share their knowledge and interest. Almost everything in this planet has its group on somewhere in these websites. People are often surprised when they spend a little time thinking about who is in their network including family, friends, team members, employees, managers, partners, customers etc. Looking at who you interact with frequently, who are you dependent on, who is dependent on you, and who you just like hanging out with is another way to generate the list. Finally and most importantly thinking about who should be part of your network and pursuing those connections will even further expand the social network. Besides sharing interest and activities such groups also allow users to upload photos and videos. Now a new generation of sites is going to a step further and using satellite positioning to track users' whereabouts. Users with Global Positioning System (GPS) enabled mobile phones log on using small applicatied onto the handset. Development is going beyond ones imagination before 10 years. Its time think and question about "Are social networking sites really required?"

Social Networking has definitely taken over the massive population. Years ago, it started with "Friendster. Friendster did not have much functionality to deliver to their audience. Hence, "MySpace" came out with some additional features. MySpace made the news numerous times. MySpace has some content that is not advisable to be viewed by children. Gradually MySpace became junk with lots of anonymous profiles and unauthorized content. Then emerged is the "FaceBook", a social networking site for college and universities students. It then spread to high schools and now to companies. The only problem with the FaceBook is that it does not allow to view profiles of those not in your network. "Linked-In" is similar website where you don't have a photo, you don't belong to groups, and you have a very limited viewing of profiles. It is basically a background or resume of your self and you befriend past co-workers, present co-workers, classmates, etc and use them for actual networking.

Every system has some pros and cons depending on how it is used. Likewise social networking has many advantages and many shortcomings. New generation social networking system using GPS, that allows us to share our location as we move around and tag where we are. This has so many opportunities in both commercial land and in our personal lives. This being used in social networking aspect is new twist on, where do you live? A social networking site is like a virtual meeting place where people can hang out and discuss different topics. Some use these networking sites to promote their blogs, to post bulletins and updates. There are just a few of the reasons why social networking is getting lot of attention lately. Even though email and messenger are the best communication tools people needs some sort of open communication. It makes life more exciting for many people and they feel comfortable when they are using social networking sites. The social networking brings opportunities to conduct our own media. It allows you to create a profile, where you can share your interests with other users and also, you can make new friends. These type of sites are also used people such as bands or authors to build up friends in order to generate interest in their music and books. On the downside though, there is also the chance of people's profiles being hacked or identities being stolen. Users have the option of setting their profile to private so that only their friends can view it, and on Facebook, visitors must register with the site before they can search for friends.

In conclusion, Social Networking is lot more interesting. Each of social networking companies is making some very interesting contributions in the social Networking Space. Each of their representatives believes that social networking is going to permeate more and more of our experience with everything.

Credit Background Check


Many people today come from very simple families and have salaried jobs. Many a times they have to postpone buying certain products due to shortage of cash. This is when banks and financial institutions came up with credit cards. You can buy the products for credit and then repay it after a few days or months. This helped the average man to buy all that he wanted.

There are many shops and other institutions that let their customers buy on credit. Giving credit to anyone and everyone is surely to land you in big troubles. Often people buy things on credit without any limits. Then when the time comes to repay the debt they are always in a fix.

This is why a credit background check is a must. Businesses will require you to give credit to your customers. It's not possible for you to know each customer and their credit paying ability. When in doubt it is better to clear it, than give credit and then face irrecoverable losses.

You can get a credit background check done on anyone. They could be your employee, customer or even just a friend. You will need certain details of the person to be provided to the website and they will come up with all the credit details. This can be done within a few minutes and there are few sites which take two days to deliver the results. It is better not to be in a hurry and wait for a detailed report.

Many sites will do these credit background checks for free. There is a chance that these sites may not be able to deliver top class results. It is always wise to pay a fee and then get access to the information needed by you. Many sites have link ups with the data bases of many credit financing sites. By paying them a fee they can access any account for you and get the information needed by you.

It is believed that only few Swiss banks never disclose any credit information of their customer to anybody. They will provide information only when there is some government intervention only.

A credit background check is very vital. You can check on your would be son in laws credit background to ensure that you are giving your daughter in safe hands. The old adage penny wise and pound foolish, suits this situation aptly. Don't think about the few dollar fees and lose more money than you can imagine.

Journals Recreate the Memories


It’s been 12 years, but I can tell you the name of the gelatteria in Florence where we had the best gelato (it was Vivoli). How about the little restaurant in Marigot, St. Martin where we watched the sun set (La Vie en Rose)? With a collection of journals for every one of our trips, I can recall the entire itinerary.

My favorite journal books are 3 x 5 or smaller with lined pages. They are easy to keep in my back pocket and when time permits (e.g. on the beach, in the train, on the plane, in the restaurant), I make cryptic entries about where we have been, how we got there, the restaurants and museums we visited, the challenges of speaking the language of the locals, and the characters we meet along the way. Some people are devoted to Moleskine journals, but I’m not that fussy. As long as it’s saddlestitched and not wirebound (hurts when you sit on them), I don’t care. In fact, having different types of journal books for different trips makes it easier when I go back to look up some particulars.

With the advent of blogging and sites like myspace, many people are coming back from their trips with their journals and converting them into web diaries, complete with pictures. The website Travellers Point gives even non-techy types the ability to create an online travel diary, as does another site, Off Exploring. Reading other peoples’ posted journals is not without its perils, since you have absolutely no idea whether they were sane or not when they visited the journal subject. With so many journal sites available to you, it’s easy to consult 10 diaries on the ins and outs of visiting Tulum, Mexico. Of course there is also the theory that if you ask 10 people you’ll get 10 opinions, but the vicarious meanderings of travel writer wannabes can be very entertaining.

Reading over journals from trips past is a bittersweet pleasure. I love remembering the little vignettes (giving a fellow passenger on an Italian train an Altoid mint and then trying to discuss in Italian and English how curiously strong they are) but also have to come to terms with the fact that I cannot travel the same way anymore. No more 70 pound backpacks or 6 countries in 10 days for me. But that’s okay, because now I want to see the world differently " as in slower. I want to take the time to sit in a café and watch the other tourists rushing by, and coincidentally, that gives me even more time to write in my journal.
