Traveling a little farther than you have originally planned might require you to be safer health-wise. There are many vaccines that your country’s health department recommends before you get somewhere else. However, Malaria is the most common especially traveling to destinations such as South America and Southeast Asia.

Malaria is often transmitted to humans through a bite by an infected mosquito, particularly the female Anopheles mosquito, known as a dusk-to-dawn biter. The infection is also transmitted through blood transfusion with an infected blood, or with a shared needle. A mother could also pass the infection to her unborn child.

Malaria is considered an endemic or constantly present throughout the sub-Saharan Africa, Middle East, South Asia, South East Asia, Oceania, Haiti, Central and South America, some parts of Dominican Republic, Mexico, and North Africa. Within these areas, Malaria cases can increase significantly depending on the epidemic level. The thing is that, most of the wonderful and new resorts are often prone to Malaria.

How to prevent Malaria during travel?

1. Get vaccinated before traveling to endemic areas. Antimalarial drugs are only prescribed; consult your health provider so you could get your vaccine base on your travel itinerary and medical history. Common antimalarial drugs include atovaquone/proguanil, doxycycline and mefloquine.

2. Avoid mosquito bites. Malaria is always transmitted between dusk and dawn. Take precautions like staying inside as much as possible during those times. If staying outdoor, make sure that you wear a long-sleeve shirt, pants and even a hat. Always apply insect repellant to the exposed skin.

3. If you get sick during the travel, consult a medical professional immediately. Malaria can be very fatal. If you develop a fever or flu-like and professional help is impossible within 24 hours, take some self-treatment drugs. However, you still have to get to the doctor as soon as possible.

4. Traveling with kids to Malaria-risk places. Get your children vaccinated 4-6 weeks before the travel. Each age has a specific dosage, so take time to let the pharmacy fill your children’s prescription.

Take note that the symptoms of such an illness are non-specific. It requires a blood test to have an accurate diagnosis. When travelers with a fever are coming from a luxurious destination or not (within three months from their departure), they are considered a medical emergency. They should be investigated as soon as possible. Hence, the tests have to be repeated within 12 to 24 hours if the symptoms persist.

Top 5 Funny “The Office”Moments

Filed under: Uncategorized — lifestylescribe @ 5:00 pm

Whee! The Office is back! After being one of the first shows to get shut down because of the Writer’s Strike. Last week, something amazing happened: post-strike eps began airing, and all was right with the world!

Just to recap how The Office is one of the sharpest, funniest shows around, here are some “Top” Office moments from season 1. (And why I haven’t stopped shooting my dinner out from my ears from laughing since)

Dwight proudly showing off his “man-purse” – From season 1, with Jim’s pep-talk, Dwight approaches the purse salesgirl (Amy Adams) and tells him that his exit would be buying a purse. Guess what. (Oh, by the way, I never did get what Dwight was trying to do when he was trying to fit his shoe in a bag.)

Pam kisses Jim – From the “Dundies” episode, there were hints from the earlier season that these two have a thing for each other, (no one could’ve guessed they would take over as the central romance of the show!) and it was such a treat to fans to finally see them kiss. (Though, Pam was intoxicated at the time, while Jim was grinning after.)

The Dwight Bobblehead – In the Valentine’s Day episode, Dwight receives a present from a secret admirer (Angela, whom he was secretly dating) and what was inside the box? A bobblehead of Dwight. This was so popular, that they actually made one for The Office merchandise!

Michael Kisses an Outed-Oscar – After offending Oscar by homosexual jokes, Michael gives a seminar on accepting homosexuality and how it doesn’t affect the workplace. He exercises his comfort by … giving a smooch — right in the kisser! (According to Jenna Fischer’s MySpace blog, that kiss was improvised, and the shock from the cast was actually real. Brilliant!)

Michael and Dwight “Hug it out” – After a brief mention of the show Entourage at the beginning of the episode, it seemed like there was no way that Michael Scott was going to forgive the coup attempt of Dwight … until he says the famous line, “let’s hug it out, b***h.”

Those are just from some of my favorite episodes. And within the week, I’ll be catching a new one. What about you guys (any Office viewers out there?) what are your favorite moments from the show?

 

My ideal home

Filed under: Uncategorized — lifestylescribe @ 5:00 pm

Houses are important for our lives. You probably need your dream house to live comfortably. If you could have a new house, what conditions do you need for it to be ideal? Where do you want to build it? What (style, size, shape, color, and so on) do you like? How many floors do you want? How many bedrooms do you want? Do you want a garden, pool, garage, and so on? Who do you want to live with?

Probably you’ll be thinking that mine is something impossible and, hopefully, unique but this is my ideal one and for me nothing is impossible.

I ended up in a totally in a unique architecture than the years before which made it very difficult but also very interesting in my opinion. I tried do make an appearance that was not only about an ideal but also reacted on the actual lifestyle of mine, the surrounding, the fairground.

My ideal house is an ongoing experiment, like a laboratory continuously under construction. It’s a space dealing not with the glamour of comfortable living but with the luxury of uncertainty and imagination. Birds do not occupy a tree; this house is about choosing not to have and not to make my house a fixed and closed entity. My surroundings are my house, my space is my tree and my house is my nest.

My house is without walls; a construction in which no design can
