If blood is not able to get to the trapped portion of intestine, gangrene may develop, requiring emergency surgery. Patients with an incarcerated inguinal hernia will find the…
Male Plastic Surgery Trends

This is not surprising since men are less comfortable talking about their surgical enhancements compared to women, as suggested by leading Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Tarick Smiley Dr. Smiley has cited a recent survey conducted by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons showing the most popular male plastic surgery trends and procedures. (The list is in no particular order.) Breast reduction Facelift About 27,760 male breast reduction surgeries were performed in 2016, a 36 percent increase compared to 2000.

Lighting 101: Lighting control strategies
Lighting controls are devices and systems that regulate the output of lamps and luminaires. They either turn the lights on and off using a switch or adjust light output using a dimmer.

In particular, commercial building energy codes are driving demand for more sophisticated, detailed and layered control systems. The digital revolution in lighting control technology has enabled manufacturer solutions to keep pace with these demands.
