LifeBank Placental and Cord Blood Banking – FemmPro OB #femmproobgyn, #femmpro, #professionals

The time of labor and birth of your baby is a wonderful milestone in your family’s life, and a miraculous new beginning. Your baby’s birth is also the perfect time to collect your newborn’s umbilical cord and placenta blood for cryobanking and storage. While many parents are banking their babies’ cord blood, you can actually do more by banking stem cells from two usable sources of stem cell-rich blood: the umbilical cord and the placenta. This service is called placental and cord blood banking, and it is available only from LifebankUSA which is registered with the FDA.

Why is banking stem cells the right thing to do for your baby?

Banking placental blood in addition to cord blood doubles the number of segments preserved and increases the total number of stem cells available. This is important for two reasons. First, transplanting more stem cells has been shown to increase the probability of transplant success and survival if needed. Second, having multiple segments available may offer the potential to treat additional conditions that may affect your baby and/or other close family members. Whether this child is your first or an addition to your family, you want to do everything you can to provide for your newborn’s well-being now and in the future. Cord blood and placental blood and tissue banking provides you with the ability to collect and preserve potentially lifesaving stem cells and bank even more stem cells. This is accomplished by collecting them from two usable sources of stem cell-rich blood: the umbilical cord and the placenta. And, doing so could one day save the life of your child or a close family member.

FemmPro OB/GYN believes that banking the most stem cells may ensure the best possible outcome for your child or family member in case there is a need for a future transplant. Your doctor simply takes the blood and tissue in a special LifebankUSA collection kit and is sent to their local processing and storage facility in New Jersey.

With LifebankUSA, you also have the option to donate the umbilical cord and placenta to contribute to lifesaving medical breakthroughs that will help save lives through research and transplantation. LifebankUSA accepts donations from any hospital nationwide. So, please consider donating cord blood and placenta to help save lives, even if you make a personal decision not to pursue private banking.

Software for Structures

SOFTWARE FOR STRUCTURES is a software development, research and consulting firm. Our software goal is to have a website where structural engineers and analysts, educators, and students can find a collection of powerful, useful, and easy to use online calculations and models. Our specialty is analysis of structures: beams, trusses, columns, plates and shells. Our programs include the disciplines of civil, mechanical, spacecraft, aviation, chemical engineering, and science. We provide solutions to very common problems like bending of plates, statically determined and indeterminate (continuous) beams, stress analysis of trusses, buckling of plates and columns, as well as complicated problems of nonlinear behavior and stability of thin shells. In our online structural engineering software we use the typical methods for simple structures (beams and trusses) providing the clients with all main steps of the solution, which is especially helpful for student training. For solving complex problems, for instance problems of nonlinear shell theory, we apply our know-how approaches based on our previous research.

We provide the best online curve fitting (data fitting) calculation, whose result is represented by graphs and simple-to-use formulas based on generalized Pade (rational) functions. The accuracy of data fitting can be managed by choosing values of correlation coefficient or error of approximation or number of coefficients of Pade function. This curve fitting calculation is getting popular among chemical, material and reliability engineers as well as experimental researchers.

Bending of beams and plates, buckling of plates and columns are the most important parts of Structural, Civil and Mechanical Engineering courses at university level. Our online software could be used by students for self-training and is very helpful by completing assignments because it provides all main steps of solutions.

Recently we have added a set of online calculations for reliability. Non-parametric estimation of event probability (rank-regression models) was added. The Weibull prediction calculator based on Maximum Likelihood and Rank Regression methods is also included now. The confidence bounds are calculated using the Fisher Matrix or the Likelihood Ratio method. In addition, the recurrent process (imperfect repair) is considered using Kijima models with the following underlying lifetime distributions: Weibull, Normal and Log-Normal. Time to repair can be also introduced into the calculation. The Maximum likelihood and efficient advanced Monte Carlo methods are used. Confidence bounds can be estimated in the online calculation. Finally, maintenance optimization calculation is provided, which is based on the above imperfect repair model with the underlying Weibull distribution function.

SOFTWARE FOR STRUCTURES is located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and was formed in 2002. It is owned and operated by Alex Yevkin, Ph. D. in Structural Engineering, Doctor of Science in Applied Mathematics, and Gleb Yevkin, B.Sc. in Computer Science.

In addition to software development, SOFTWARE FOR STRUCTURES provides consulting and research in the areas represented by our software. As you surf through our website, you may notice that many calculations are free.

Please let us know by email what other software you would like to see developed.

Airframe and Powerplant

Your first step toward a career in Aviation Maintenance Science is obtaining your FAA Airframe and Powerplant (A P) Certification.
Global’s hands-on approach trains students in the specific skills employers seek in the airframe powerplant mechanics and aircraft inspection fields. Students take courses in simulated work environments from instructors with real-world experience.
Our curriculum was developed by educators and industry representatives to ensure that course offerings accurately reflect current industry standards. Students must complete the required course to qualify for the program’s Certificate of Achievement. Once trained, technicians will also be successful in related fields of aircraft manufacturing, electronics, hydraulics, pneumatics, welding, sheet metal, quality control, civil and military defense.
F.A.A. Eligibility Requirements
The A P mechanics course is for applicants who meet FAR 65.71-65.77 only. Under these regulations, you must have a certain type of mechanical experience before the F.A.A. will allow you to take the F.A.A. written exams. The required experience for the powerplant mechanic rating is a minimum of 18 months working with tools on any type of aircraft engine. The required experience for the airframe mechanic rating is a minimum of 18 months working with tools on any type of airframe. If you want both ratings, and your experience was a combination of airframe and powerplant, then you need a total of 30 months experience (not 36).
Obtaining Your Authorization Slips
To be enrolled in GLOBAL SCHOOL OF AERONAUTICS as a mechanic student, you must first meet the F.A.A. experience requirements. The purpose of this is to be sure the F.A.A. will permit you to take the written exam after you finish the course.
Oral and Practical Examinations
The F.A.A. requires the written results to be in the student’s hands before an Oral and Practical examination may be given. Therefore, in order to take an oral and practical examination with one of our examiners, you must bring your written score slips and your airmen certificate and/or rating application 8610-2. Your F.A.A. inspector should give you two copies of the 8610-2 form, both bearing original signatures. Photo copied signatures are not accepted.
Classroom Time
The average time to obtain the A P rating is from 11 – 13 days. Our instructors work closely with each student, progressing him/her based on their own capabilities. Our course is guaranteed 100% – we keep working with you until you pass – good for 36 months.
