Our society today is driven by our minds, our fear and our ego. We are too busy trying to get ahead and make something of ourselves in this world. You see, the heart is free and wild and is driven by love. The head is practical and analytical and is driven by fear. This is why when you attempt to start following your heart, your head will be very quick to thwart your actions. This fearful mind,, will bring up all the reasons why you cannot do what you desire, The path that your heart calls you towards may be an unconventional one. Following your heart often requires us to take a detour from the well trodden path, and rebel from societal or family expectations in order to find our inner fulfilment. It can be a long and lonely road initially. Following Your heart's desire may mean facing your fears and doing something that you love, yet are petrified of at the same time. It will mean learning to listen to a deep inner voice, rather than the loud forceful voices of the outer world
The decision to follow your heart is a journey. It may be a scary road, but in my opinion this is what life is all about.
For most people, it is much easier to live in denial, than actually face what it is that they really want. They would rather pretend they are happy with what they have and pretend that their inner dreams are not that important to them any way.
The dreams that come from your heart should scare you and they should challenge you to step out of your comfort zone and in to a whole new level of being.
You must start by finding the courage to find out what your heart wants You may experience feelings of confusion, self-doubt and even regret as you begin to challenge everything you have come to know about yourself. If you are ready to connect with your heart and follow it's calling then you will need to let go of everything you think you know. We no longer believe that anything is possible for us, rather we just take what we can get. Our minds and our belief...
...Eliminating Health Disparities
Despite major advances in the fields of medicine and healthcare services over the past years, a significant health gap between rich and poor remains. As populations grow, so apparently do health disparities. The poor continue to shoulder a particularly disproportionate social burden in terms of inequitable access to decent healthcare, rising costs and higher rates of morbidity and mortality.
People of color are receiving special attention in medical, social, and political literature due to disparities in health status. In recent years, evidence has shown a relationship between race/ethnicity and health disparities among the U.S. population. If racial and ethnic disparities in health are not addressed, demographic changes over the next decade will amplify the importance of this issue. As racial and ethnic minority populations grow, so will the poorer health status of our communities.
The factors contributing to these health disparities include reduced health care access, increased risk of disease due to work environment or housing conditions, and increased illness due to underlying cultural, socioeconomic, and medical factors.
Improving access to health care will require increasing the number of people with insurance and removing a host of other barriers blocking large numbers of Americans from receiving needed care. The problem of access reaches beyond the 44 million Americans who lack health insurance-a number that is expected to...
...How YourHeart Works
Yourheart is a pump. It keeps blood moving around your body. The blood delivers oxygen and nutrients to all parts of your body, and carries away unwanted carbon dioxide and other waste products.
The heart has four chambers - two on the left side and two on the right. The two upper chambers are called the atria, and the two lower chambers are called the ventricles. The two sides of the heart are divided by a muscular wall called the septum. Each side of the heart has a ‘one-way valve system’, which means that the blood travels only in one direction through the heart.
The heart and circulatory system
With each contraction, or heartbeat, the heart pumps blood forward from the left side of the heart through the aorta (the main artery leaving the heart) and into the arteries. The arteries divide off into smaller and smaller branches to supply a microscopic network of capillaries, taking the blood to every part of your body. The blood then travels back to the heart from the capillaries into the veins, back to the heart. The branches of the veins join to form larger veins, which deliver the blood back to the right side of yourheart.
As the heart...
...Importance of yourHeart
You know how important yourheart is, so it's no wonder people worry when they hear someone has heart problems.
Heart disease, also called cardiovascular (say: kar-dee-oh-vas-kyoo-lur) disease, mainly affects older people and means that there are problems with the heart and blood vessels.
You might know someone who has cardiovascular disease because 61 million Americans have some form of it. This disease includes a variety of problems, including high blood pressure, hardening of the arteries, chest pain, heart attacks, and strokes.
What Is Heart Disease?
The heart is the center of the cardiovascular system. Through the body's blood vessels, the heart pumps blood to all of the body's cells. The blood carries oxygen, which the cells need. Cardiovascular disease is a group of problems that occur when the heart and blood vessels aren't working the way they should.
Here are some of the problems that go along with cardiovascular disease:
* Arteriosclerosis (say: ar-teer-ee-oh-skluh-row-sus): also called hardening of the arteries, arteriosclerosis means the arteries become thickened and are no longer as flexible.
* Atherosclerosis (say: ah-thuh-row-skluh-row-sus): a buildup of cholesterol and fat that makes the arteries narrower so less blood can flow through. Those buildups...
...Britney Spears: FollowYour Dreams

Spears is always following her dreams which are to be the best she can be. She wants to be the best pop-star she can and she has accomplished that in many ways.
Britney spears has a passion for her music and the life along with it. Spears uses her music and dancing to connect with her fans. She is an extremely gifted artist and she always works hard to please her fans. Her songs are mostly about being lonely and heartbroken, or wishing a lost love would return. The fans are her number one priority in life, without them she would have no inspiration for her music(Pareles, Jon).
Britney Spears is an extremely talented musician. Spears loves to entertain her listeners. Since she was a toddler she would sing in front of imaginary audiences and even sing in her church. Her sassy style is inspired by Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey and what she hears from them on the radio.

...FOLLOW JESUS AS YOUR EXAMPLE
An artist's followers are those who imitate his style. Jesus "has set us an example that we should follow His steps." As all rules are better understood when accompanied with examples, He visited this world to furnish an illustration of the perfect law of God. In the human life of Christ we see the holiness of Deity developed in the relationships, duties, and trials of humanity. Let that life be our study. A painter will place before him some fine production of his master's skill, gazing at it from day to day, until its forms and tints are transferred to his own canvas. His first efforts may be very rude, and so inferior to the original that it would be difficult to trace any resemblance. But he is in earnest, and by persevering efforts he daily makes some advance towards the perfection at which he aims. So let us place before us the life of Christ, and endeavor to produce something like it. The more our mind is fixed on Him, the more successful we shall be.
We must not look too much even to the example of good men. Their excellence is only an imperfect copy of the divine Original. When men are our models, we are in danger of imitating their blemishes as well as their beauties. Let us, then, copy direct from the Master Himself. Let us act as He acted; and in case of doubt, let us consider how He would have been likely to act, had He been in our circumstances. It is a lofty standard; but the higher...
Dreams!! Most important factor in anyone’s life. If you really want to fulfill your dreams then surround yourself with positive successful people who believe in your dreams. Common fact, whatever we get for an intake, we try to make our self regarding an environment. Some of us can be think totally out of the box but what about others? This thing would happen with most of us. It is very important to know that What is our aim, What is our values in our own life because we mostly tried to listen random options from others. Lets give you my own example. When I turned 25, There is something make me think what I actually want in my life and why I am here as a Human. Being human is much better than human being. To earn a handsome salary is the only motto of my Life…(laugh) My aim was constantly blow regarding an outer Winds. Sometimes it works, many times it doesn’t. But one day, I remember very clearly I found something special which really turns my whole entire life. It was not a Special Quote or big counseling it was just a ‘Broacher’ for Mass Communication College in Pune. But many hesitations came across in my mind. It seems so many hurdles like how would I get enroll in that college. Is my choose is right or not blaa, blaa.. But one thing was very clear and that is whatever hilarious situation may be came across my way..but I will never ever see back again. I made something so clear that” Writing” is the only thing which I Born for!! Then...
...Cardiovascular System: The Heart
Explain why you did this exercise. Where there any safety precautions you needed to follow? If so, what were they?
The safety precautions in this exercise were to wear goggles and gloves due to being exposed to chemicals and dissection of the sheep and cat heart. Appropriate work space was also required.
Exercise 1: Microscopic Anatomy of Cardiac Muscle
Sketch and label your slide in the space provided. Include a description of the structures you observed on the slide.
See attached picture labeled cardiac muscle
A. What are some unique structural features of cardiac muscle?
Cardiac muscle is essentially limited to the heart, though it extends slightly into the nearby blood vessels. It too, is striated, but it differs from skeletal muscle. As far as the features, the cells are much shorter, so they are called myocytes rather than fibers. Cardiac muscle is considered involuntary because it is not usually under conscious control; it contracts even if all nerve connections to it are severed.
B. What are intercalated discs and what do they do?
Intercalated disks are cross-bands that separate the opposing ends of cardiac muscle cells. These bands are the result of elaborate junctions...
...Racing Against YourHeart
Friedman, M,. & Roseman, R.H. (1959). Association of specific over behavior pattern with blood and cardiovascular findings. Journal of the American Medical Association, 169, 1286-1296.
This study by Friedman came about in a very odd way, and dared to take a look at things not understood and in an area no one had before ventured. Dr. Friedman was having the upholstery redone on the couches and chairs in his office, since with so much traffic from patients, it had worn thin and old. The man doing the reupholstering had made a comment about how the chairs all seemed to be much more heavily worn out on the edge of the seat rather than the larger and more comfortable groove of the seat. This sparked interest in Friedman, and he immediately began to ask himself questions. Seeing as how his patients all had heart disease and they all seemed to have this inclining to sit on the edge of their seat, Friedman wanted to see if there was a pattern in heart disease patients with the characteristic of always being on edge and nervously sitting in chairs.
To test his hypothesis Friedman joined with Roseman, a fellow researcher to determine if the sitting on the edge of one’s seat is directly related to developing heart disease or not. To start their study, Friedman and Roseman made two lists of characteristics; one labeled Pattern A and the other Pattern B. Pattern A lists...
