In recent years technology has become an important part for people worldwide, while recognizing that it has been a very useful tool also be understood that it could become a double-edged sword for those who cannot avoid contact with this.


When entering in the honey of new technologies, is indisputable satisfaction they generate, since the fact as having everything at hand to many is the most important thing in their lives, so make a visit to a particular place and share it over the network is something inexplicable to many.

Likewise others use it as a tool as working in the case of journalists, because they need to know what happens every day in the world and with these tools can those in the know with just one click. But this technology could become weapon since in many cases is addictive, to the point where people come to spend their nights awake, losing their family, losing their jobs or even their lives, just by being aware of a notification, a tweet or a post.

But if you is switch off from the networks to get of your home for you technology is the tool of the present and the future of your life. Written by: Adriana Vargas ~5~

Religion Vs. Science

The religious faith of a doctor has a "strong influence" on the choices you make with terminal patients.

New research from the University of London, found that doctors atheists are more likely make decisions that accelerate the end of life of a terminally ill patient, however it is less likely that doctors religious discuss with their deeply ill patients options palliative treatments. Experts say that these findings are "disturbing" and show that it is necessary to pay more attention to how religious beliefs influence in the medical care.

How was it conducted?

Communication with the patient

London researchers surveyed more than 8,500 physicians in the UK, of which 4,000 responded. In the survey were asked about the treatment applied to your last patient died, if they had offered a continuous deep sedation, or sedation until death-terminal and if the patient had discussed decisions that, in his opinion, could shorten life.

The results showed that physicians who rated themselves as "very or extremely nonreligious" showed 40% more likely to practice religious doctors sedation.

They were also asked about their religious beliefs, ethnicity and opinion on euthanasia and assisted death. Although in the UK it is illegal to supply drugs with the deliberate intention of ending the life of a person, doctors can administer morphine and other drugs to relieve pain or suffering, but this procedure, called terminal sedation, can have a effect to shorten life.

On the other hand, those who described themselves as "very or extremely religious" were less likely to have discussed with their patients the palliative treatment decisions. More than 12% of physicians surveyed described themselves as "very or extremely religious," but only one in five was discovered as "very or extremely non-religious." Worrying

Dr. Ann McPherson of the organization Dignity in Dying, states that although this study demonstrates that there "is a lot to do" for doctors to take into account the wishes of their patients. "The fact that their religious beliefs some doctors do not discuss with their patients the possible options for the end of life is deeply troubling," says the expert. Written by: Diego Lara

Terrible diseases: How it affect your world

Life, you can go in an instant

It was June 26, 2012, when midday was past, like every Sunday I was with my mom in exciting football matches, suddenly‌. Rang the bell of his cell, radically change his face, his skin turned pale and tears fell from his eyes... - His sister crashed

Those were the words out of his mouth after a second of silence that seemed more like forever. Run that was our attitude with eyes soaked in tears took a taxi. Again the sound of the cell again became the mourning in thoughts that should not be, - Hello, hello sister happened? My mother asked, her voice broken into tears.... Well you got there, and hung up, with the agony of waiting came over me wonder what happened? And she replied that her aunt takes us to the hospital that we collect on Avenida Cali. ~ 14 ~

We ran as if the world was ending, did not know that was what had happened, when he finally got to the hospital they said had led to another place because they had the resources to meet it there. I ran to see the husband of my sister who was crying like a baby, the words coming out of his mouth were, Oh! My Lili, my God my Lili, When he saw me he hugged me and told me - Nana is very serious if she leaves I do not know what- The moment it was becoming more painful because we had no news of her and what had happened.

I had to stay at the hospital with my nephew because everyone wanted to see my "baby" as I tell my sister, in the agony of waiting, I decided to talk to the nurses who were walking around, but his answers were burning inside my heart, - The girl of the crash, she was not very bad girl, suddenly dies- so every second of waiting was an eternal agony, 6 hours passed until finally the news that I was stable. So my heartfelt peace at last, though not sure how would see the next day. When he finally saw her my heart beat strong and even seemed a panda, I knew that was not going to lose, I knew God would have it a little longer next to me and I am not ungrateful.
