死亡事故への疑問

最近、美容外科での死亡事故のニュースを目にすることが多くなったように感じます。
病院の医療ミスで患者が死亡というニュースは一時期良く耳にしたものですし、心臓や脳などの大切な臓器に直接手術をするのですから、小さなミスが死亡につながるということは納得でき、同時にどこか仕方がないもののように感じていました。
ですが、美容外科では体の奥深くにまでメスを入れるわけでもなし、死亡事故なんて起こるものなのかしら?と不思議だったのです。

私自身、そろそろ顔のたるみやしわが気になってくる年頃です。
具体的な年齢は伏せさせていただきますが、いわゆるアラサーを通り越してアラフォーに至ろうとしている頃とだけ言わせていただきます。
世間的にはまだ若い方とはいえ、それでも年々衰えていくことに変わりはなく、このたびついにプチ整形を決意した次第です。
そこで色々なことを調べていたのですが、こういった悪いうわさが出てくるということはそれだけ美容整形を受けた人が多いということに他なりません。
死亡というあまりいいイメージのない言葉と、「美容整形 よかった」といういい言葉で調べてみたところ、後者の方が検索結果がはるかに多いということもわかりました。
分母が大きければ問題もそれだけ大きくなる、ということのようです。
ならば特に気にすることもないものと判断し、美容整形に踏み切ることにしました。

数ある美容整形外科の中でもどこがいいのか、まったくの初体験である私にはわかりません。
じっくりと検討した結果、術前の説明が丁寧でアフターケアがあり、さらに手術ごとに保証期間のある品川美容外科を選びカウンセリングを予約しました。
私は石橋を叩いて渡る主義ですので、これから受けようとしている美容整形手術について今後も調べられるだけ調べようと思っています。
そして、その結果を私のように美容整形について悩んでいる人と共有することができればと思いこのブログを立ち上げました。
整形のことで悩んでいる人の手助けができれば幸いです。

Sweet Summertime

Summertime Inspiration // Bubby and Bean
1   //   2   //   3   //   4   //   5   //   6   //   7   //   8   //   9  

I’m not going to waste your time going on and on about my love affair with summer.  My regular readers already know how much I adore it.  And if you’re a new reader, there’s no need to bore you.  But truth be told, summer officially begins in four short days, and I’ve been catching myself daydreaming about pretty much every wonderfully stereotypical summer moment in existence.  You know what I’m talking about: sunshine pouring down onto rivers filled with bathing suit clad friends on rafts, picnics with juicy peaches and watermelon and vibrant colors and lots of gingham, bare feet dancing in the dirt to late night music under starry skies, yellow bicycles and flower crowns and lemonade and ethereal lighting in all its glory.  And lots of images like those you see above, most of which can be found on my Summertime Pinterest board.  (Yep, just like with plants, I have a whole board devoted to my most beloved of seasons.)

If you’re a summer girl like I am, I hope that these images get you pumped for the best time of the year.  And if you’re one of those non-summer people (I promise I love you despite our differences), I hope they remind you that even in the greatest heat and most blinding of sun rays, there are some pretty incredible moments to be had in the sweet summertime.

Her husband, Police Detective Ray (Razor) Morgan tells her she was leaving him for another man, but that just can’t be so. Can it? She’s determined to remember, even if it kills her. And it just might. When bullets start to fly, Ray is forced to take the wife he believes faithless on the lam until they can figure out who is trying to kill them.

But none can compare to the ultimate Bridezilla she’s dealing with now. Still, she’s trying desperately to impress Bella Neeley, Galveston Island’s most sought-after wedding planner, so she can take the top spot in Bella’s list of recommended photographers–a spot currently occupied by her arch-rival, Drew Kincaid. What she doesn’t count on, however, is falling head over heels for the competition.

With her contagious humor and cast of quirky characters, Janice Thompson gives readers more of the bridal business drama they want in a brand-new series all about those long-suffering people who make beautiful weddings happen.

http://www.amazon.com/Mommy-Little-Flask-Imperfection-Series-ebook/dp/B00DHLITY8PUBLISHERS WEEKLY REVIEW: Turner is back and better than ever in this comedic sequel to This Little Piggy Went to the Liquor Store, as reliably honest and zany storytelling conveys both joys and trials of parenthood. Turner, an Idaho mother raising two young daughters, has an opinion on everything, including buffets (they bear responsibility for “what’s wrong with this country”); writers’ retreats and how to measure the quality of someone’s writing by how much he or she talks about it (“excessive babbling” is an “attempt to compensate for crippling insecurity”); and a parenting technique she calls “Willful Denial of Fact.” Vignettes range from botched chemical peels, her children’s Mandarin classes, endeavors to use a Slip ‘n Slide, and six months in Mexico with the in-laws. Readers will be pleased to see familiar characters reprise their roles from Turner’s first book, such as brother-in-law Virgil, who tells everyone that Turner’s father is Dean Koontz, “the guy who wrote The Shining.” Turner’s unapologetic confessional is easy to relate to, and she succeeds in finding humor and entertainment in even the most mundane trials of motherhood

Roberta Jones Spivey isn’t going to lay down for that. Instead, she reinvents herself and the new Bobbie Jones—new haircut, new name, new attitude—follows her soon-to-be ex to the small Northern California town of Cottonmouth.

What better way to show him—and his sweetheart—what he’s missing in the brand new Bobbie Jones than taking up with the town’s local bad boy—who’s also reputed to be a serial killer. Nick Angel is devilishly handsome and sexy as all get-out. In a word, perfect.

It’s all going exactly according to plan…until a real murder rocks the little town of Cottonmouth. Of course, Nick didn’t do it…did he?

New pet client signals further insurance inroads for Aquarium


(PRWEB UK) 9 June 2014

Anglo-American technology innovators, Aquarium Software, have signalled their determination to build on the early successes of 2014, by announcing another new UK client. West Yorkshire?s NCI has joined the Aquarium stable of top insurance brands, as it becomes the latest to take advantage of Aquarium?s intimate understanding of the technology needs of the global pet insurance sector.

Based in Harrogate, NCI began life offering motorcycle roadside assistance to insurance policies, but quickly moved into other vehicle rescue services. Having joined the growing pack moving into pet insurance, NCI realised they needed a software solution both innovative and flexible, capable of accommodating their expansion plans, while not losing sight of the importance they have always attached to a positive customer journey. A brief tailor made for Aquarium?s skills.

“When we heard what NCI needed, we simply called and said we already had the perfect solution for them,” said Mark Colonnese, Aquarium Sales and Marketing Director. ?The NCI board agreed to meet with us and after a series of discussions, quickly saw how the key elements of the Aquarium pet platform would work for them. We then went to the next stage and tailored the software to their individual needs and this – plus our deep understanding of the pet insurance industry in the UK and worldwide – were the prime factors in securing the business.?

Much of Aquarium?s work to date has focused on the importance of the customer journey and enabling insurers to extract compelling management information (MI) that was previously unimaginable. It is this understanding of the emotional connection between ?pet and parent?, so important to customers, that convinced NCI that Aquarium was the partner they needed for the successful development of their latest venture.

“Aquarium had the right levels of enthusiasm, skills and experience that made their software and presentation a compelling demonstration that we could not ignore,” said NCI Group IT Director Craig Astbury. “We were about to commit a substantial amount of money to a new bespoke development with a third party. When Aquarium arrived at our offices and spoke about up low transactional costs, unlimited users, and the ability to cope with as much new business as we could throw at it. In the end, given Aquarium’s work with the biggest names in the business, it became an easy decision to make.”

Aquarium has a proven track record of success with Capita, BDML, Markerstudy and Pets Plus Us, so NCI knew Aquarium could deliver on their technical promises. NCI were also keen to take advantage of next generation software solutions which are designed to guide the “pet parent” through the policy administration and often emotional claims process.

“As a business, it wasn’t practical, cost effective or indeed necessary to acquire all new hardware and software so we needed something that would dovetail with our existing systems seamlessly. The fact Aquarium needed little overhead on our existing IT infrastructure was important,” added Craig. “Aquarium also delivered immediate deployment without any disruption to our business, which was also an important consideration for us, and more importantly, our customers.”

Many companies have struggled to get to grips with pet insurance market and to make it profitable. Aquarium however provides the tools from underwriting and policy admin through to claims that helps insurers and affinity partners turn a healthy profit in a market that is still only 20% penetrated.

“It’s a fact that some insurance providers have been put off, which is a shame when the path to profitability is not insurmountable with the right approach and software,” added Mark. “Pet insurance has been treated as a bit of a pet project by some, when what this market sector requires is the same robust approach and respect given to other more traditional personal lines insurance categories. We were able to show NCI how our software has made game changing improvements to the profitability of the pet market following our sustained success in helping to price and underwrite successfully and at the same time combat fraud and reduce claims leakage.”

With a track record developing systems for UK insurers such as Markerstudy and Americas based insurers such as RSA (Canada’s) Pets Plus Us, Aquarium offers a bespoke, cost-effective service that can be tailored to meet the specific demands of each insurance sector and insurance company. Using its very own brand of cloud technology – driven by “management by exception” and a transactional deployment model – clients are rewarded not only with a reduced cost base, but with the added benefits of unprecedented MI and a vastly-improved customer journey.
