Video recording is also improved by changes made to the optic. Theres a new guide-pole mechanism thats said to minimise shifts in the position of the image when zooming, and this works with an internal zoom structure to help keep things even more stable as the lens moves. Panasonic also says that a new galvanator-type actuator helps to smoothly adjust the nine-bladed diaphragm for more discreet changes in brightness, while the further incorporation of two ND filters allows for three levels of filtration useful for video recording. The lens itself spans a 20x optical zoom range, covering focal lengths equivalent to 24-480mm in 35mm terms the far end of the zoom range is shown above. This is broader than the 25-400mm range offered by the FZ1000. It has a variable maximum aperture of f/2.8-4.5 and is equipped with a Hybrid O.

According to an article I read about the health benefits of laughter, it can... Lower blood pressure Increase vascular blood flow and oxygenation of the blood Give a workout to the diaphragm and abdominal, respiratory, facial, leg, and back muscles Reduce certain stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline Increase the response of tumor- and disease-killing cells such as Gamma-interferon and T-cells Defend against respiratory infections-even reducing the frequency of colds-by immunoglobulin in saliva. Over the years many of us lose the ability to find laughter every day. Maybe it's because of our circumstances, or maybe it's because we just don't go looking for it. Think of things that make you happy and make time to do them with a friend. If you can't think of anything to do or find a friend, then rent a funny movie. Don't know any? Look no further.

The psoas is also linked to the diaphragm through fascia (connective tissue), impacting our fear reflex and breathing. This is due to the connection between the psoas and the reptilian brain , the most ancient inner part of the brain stem and spinal cord. Liz Koch , author of The Psaos Book and founder of Core Awareness, explains, “Long before the spoken word or the organizing capacity of the cortex developed, the reptilian brain, known for its survival instincts, maintained our essential core functioning.” Why The Psoas Is Considered the Muscle of the Soul Prior to learning about the connection the psoas has to energy, Olson started implementing more hip opening poses at the beginning and end of her yoga practice. Although her intention was simply to relax her psoas, in doing so, she experienced a significant decrease in tension and a newfound strength.

. seeking areas of commitment that are no longer SUPPORTABLE as a ‘happy FLOW’ in your life. Updating one’s commitments may reduce the stress to these vital life-sustaining tissues. DIAPHRAGM/PERICARDIUM THEDRIVING FORCEOF PERSONAL PREFERENCE. Of the many human emotions, DESIRE is among the most central to our happiness. When we cannot get the things we desire, we may become angry, frustrated, depressed or lethargic.. and we may experience a sympathetic response from the great muscles which pump our lungs (the Diaphragm) or the muscle which pumps the Heart (the Pericardium;) leading to irregularities of heartbeat, blood-pressure, breath-control or circulation of blood throughout the body. The holistic recommendation is for an honest re-appraisal of one’s REAL DESIRES IN LIFE, seeking areas of personal affection that are missing, difficult to relax about or otherwise traumatic.

EF lenses are designed for full frame Canon DSLRs, but they also work perfectly well on smaller APS-C Canons too. All but one of the lenses in our list are full frame, so they'll work on any Canon DSLR. 'EF-S' lenses, however, are designed solely for the smaller APS-C DSLRs in the Canon range from the EOS 7D Mark II downwards – they can't be used on full-frame Canon DSLRs. Only one of the lenses in our list is an EF-S lens, and that's the EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM. It's a good value lens for an APS-C Canon DSLR, but it's no use later on if you upgrade to a full frame model. 'EF-M' lenses are designed solely for Canon's EOS M mirrorless cameras. You can't use them on any of the Canon DSLRs, so we don't include them in this list. It's easy to see why our winner is a firm favourite amongst pro shooters. The design features top-grade fluorite glass and five UD (Ultra-low Dispersion) elements, a virtually circular eight-blade diaphragm, and a dual-mode Image Stabilizer giving a four-stop advantage.

SHE BREATHES IN And then from the middle part. SHE BREATHES IN We use a breathing technique called pranayama, 'which is based in yoga and it's a three-part breath.' It's something that babies are born with, the ability to use a diaphragmatic breath, and as we grow into adults, we start to become much more rigid and we only use the top part of our chest in order to breathe, so a proper three-part breath starting with the diaphragm will really use your whole lung effectively.

WASHINGTON: Henry Heimlich, the doctor who gave his name to a famous technique that saved the lives of countless choking victims, has died aged 96, news media reported Saturday. Heimlich, a thoracic surgeon, died at a nursing home in Cincinnati, Ohio following a heart attack. The Heimlich manoeuvre," which he invented in 1974 after seeing people choke — and some die — in restaurants, is thought to have saved tens of thousands of lives. To perform it, a person stands behind the choking victim and applies pressure to the lower diaphragm with his or her hands. Compressing the air in the lungs in this fashion can force the foreign object out of the trachea. The many people whose lives have thus been saved include former president Ronald Reagan and the actresses Marlene Dietrich and Elizabeth Taylor. Heimlich himself had employed the manoeuvre a few months ago to save the life of a fellow retiree at his nursing home, an 87-year-old woman.

As an academic cardiothoracic surgeon. I do cardiac surgery mostly; coronary revascularizations, cardiac valve operations, and I have been involved with cardiac transplantation. I also do operations on the pulmonary system; lung resections for cancer, lung volume reduction for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and clean outs (decortications) for lung infections. The trachea, esophagus, chest wall, diaphragm, and great vessels are also areas of interest. Academic surgeons love what they do! The pay is good; by that I mean fair. They will never be considered in the same financial class as the private practitioners but that's ok. By training future surgeons, their knowledge and experience will live on for years. By advancing medical knowledge, they are helping enumerable future patients most of whom they will never meet. This is a legacy worth pursuing.

And also finding the contraceptive clinics have shut down. I looked into every single option and I decided that I didn't want the implant, I didn't want the injection, I didn't want the coil. My first stop was the diaphragm. The nurse's reaction was not positive. She basically laughed me out of the room. And she reluctantly fit me but because of her reaction, when I was having trouble with it all, when I wasn't quite sure, I didn't want to go back and I didn't go back.

They are the world's first on-ear Planar Magnetic headphones, which use a near weightless diaphragm that’s three times larger than typical headphones for fast response times, dramatically reduced distortion, higher resolution and improved imaging. Additionally the SINE feature voice-coil technology that delivers a uniform driving force across the entire diaphragm for near zero distortion and clear and accurate sound. The industrial design for the SINE were done by BMW's DesignWorks, and a great feature of it was the SINE are foldable, so you can make them compact to fit in a backpack or jacket pocket. Apple 3.5 mm Lightning Headphone Jack Adapter Of course, you dont NEED to buy new Lightning earphones or headphones to use with your iPhone 7. You have the option of going wireless with Bluetooth devices or just by buying a Lightning to 3.5mm audio jack adapter to make your existing earphones and headphones compatible.

One particular advantage of using an 85mm lens for portraiture is that the short telephoto focal length has the effect of slightly compressing any prominent facial features (think noses and chins) for a bit of added flattery. Generally, prime lenses offer superior image quality to zoom lenses. Their killer feature, however, is a wide maximum aperture that's usually between f/1.4 and f/1.8. This enables a tight depth of field, so you can blur fussy backgrounds and make the person you're shooting really stand out in an image. The lens's 'bokeh' is all-important This is the quality of defocused areas within the image, and the aim is to produce a smooth and creamy-looking blur effect. When shooting at anything other than a wide-open aperture, one thing that helps with this is for the lens to feature a well-rounded diaphragm. Wider apertures also help if you're taking indoor or twilight portraits and you want to make the most of ambient lighting effects without using flash.

) It does make a difference even if we have to do it one person at a time, we can all turn back this tide of negativity and hatred. Because truth is stronger than fear. Also that shirt was my brothers' and it was too big for me. 2. PICK UP THE PHONE Call your congressman and senator and the mayor and governor and let them know you are not happy with what's going on. Call republican senators and congressmen. Tell them they will lose your vote if they blindly support Trump. (Don't mention the fact that you were never going to vote for them anyway.) 3. REMEMBER HUMOR I once read about some people who protested at a Klan rally by hiring a mariachi band. We have to be skillful and part of that might be having a sense of humor. It's also good for your health: every time you laugh, your diaphragm plunges down and you breathe deeply. Thanks to Stephen Colbert, I know that the letters that spell TRUMP TOWER can also be arranged to spell the words RECTAL PUMP.
