Subdomains and WordPress – ‘How To’

This article resulted from some recent work performed on a new website, and I have written it as a step-by-step solution. It could save you a stack of time. It assumes that you understand the use of FTP.

AIM 1: to create a website and to add a subdomain.

Please note: the domain, subdirectories and files in this article are imaginary, and are for instructional purposes only.

Let’s use the example of a fruit grower.

Build a website fruit.com using your FTP client software, and with the files and subdirectories as follows –

  • fruit.com/index.html
  • fruit.com/apples/orchard.html
  • fruit.com/grapes/vineyard.html

Where fruit.com is usually represented by /public_html/ on the server, and index.html is the home page.

SUBDOMAIN

Use the cpanel utility to ‘add’ a subdomain – citrus.

This means you will be creating a new folder ‘citrus’ which is a SPECIAL FOLDER.

Using FTP again with the username and password as before (i.e. you don’t create a new FTP user for the subdomain), build –

  • /public_html/citrus/index.html (and this time it’s a different index.html)
  • /public_html/citrus/oranges/grove.html
  • /public_html/citrus/grapefruit/orchard.html

To access index.html, grove.html, and orchard.html using your browser, the urls are –

  • citrus.fruit.com/index.html
  • citrus.fruit.com/oranges/grove.html
  • citrus.fruit.com/grapefruit/orchard.html

If everything has been set up correctly, the following WILL NOT display the new index.html, or grove.html, nor orchard.html

  • fruit.com/citrus/index.html
  • fruit.com/citrus/oranges/grove.html
  • fruit.com/citrus/grapefruit/orchard.html

Conclusion: designating the folder ‘citrus’ as a subdomain has made it special. It is special in that you have to access the folder in a special way. It is not special in the way you use FTP to add content.

WORDPRESS (abbrev. ‘WP’)

AIM 2: to install WP on the site fruit.com, and then on the subdomain ‘citrus’.

(See WordPress.org for the installation method)

On your main site –

Using cpanel’s utility for managing MySql databases, create a database, say, ‘wp’. It’s actual full name you will see will turn out to be ‘yourusername_wp’.

Create a new user, say, ‘wpu’. His actual full name will turn out to be ‘yourusername_wpu’.

Connect the new user to the new database.

The actual names will be the ones to use in your WP installation when you edit your wp_config file (the ‘wp_’ here has nothing to do with the name you gave to your database).

Using FTP, install WP, following the installation method, on your main site fruit.com. You will probably install it in /public_html/, or in something like /public_html/blog/

Now for WP in your subdomain –

Using cpanel’s utility for managing MySql databases, create a database, say, ‘ws’. It’s actual name will turn out to be ‘yourusername_ws’.

Create a new user, say, ‘wsu’. His actual name will turn out to be ‘yourusername_wsu’.

Connect the new user to the new database.

The actual names will be the ones to use in your WP installation when you edit your wp_config file.

Using FTP install WP, following the installation method, in your folder ‘citrus’. You will probably install it in /public_html/citrus/, or in something like /public_html/citrus/blog/

Well done! You now have a working subdomain with WordPress installed on the main domain and in the subdomain.

Tips To Make PSD To HTML Conversion Simpler

When thinking about an online business, you must think about a website that is appealing and usable. PSD to HTML conversion aims to deliver professional looking websites with a consistent design. With such a website you can count on improved conversion rates. PSD files need lots of technical expertise and time to convert and the corrective measures need to be taken to change the files to HTML. You can look for experts offering the conversion services or use a few helpful tips to make the conversion process simpler for you.

Tip 1 – Start by creating a website that is cross browser compatible

Conversion of PSD files to HTML helps in the designing of sites that are validated and compatible with popular browsers. This ensures that your site can be accessed from browsers such as Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Internet Explorer. With hand coded markups, your website will achieve faster loading times, therefore giving users a good browsing experience.

Tip 2 – Keep the PSD files professionally organized

Tools like Photoshop have plenty of files including fonts, backgrounds, photos and PSD files. To be more organized you should consider arranging the files and placing them in folders. When your PSD files are carefully organized then you will reduce the effort and time needed to complete the conversion process. It is much easier to find relevant files when you have some arrangement order.

Tip 3 – Carefully design the website layout

Even before you begin with the conversion process, you should think about website layout. You can choose between responsive, fixed, mobile or fluid web layouts. Responsive layout shifts your pages to fit different screen, especially when targeting mobile devices. Mobile layout is a design specifically for smartphones and tablets and a fixed layout has static width and height useful for desktop designs. Fluid design on the other hand benefits desktops and mobile devices with elements, shifting when the browser is minimized.

Tip 4 – Consider semantic coding

Semantic tags that are SEO friendly will maximize visibility in search engines when used during the PSD to HTML conversion. The engines have a tendency of crawling web pages rich in content and look for legible texts from the HTML codes used. If you want to be highly ranked on the search engines, then consider semantic coding when converting your files.

Tip 5 – Try hand coding instead of auto generated code

Today there are lots of applications and programs that convert images into HTML file, but it is wiser to hand code your site when converting PSD into HTML. The fact is that the auto generated codes have errors, but when you hand code you can eliminate unnecessary codes and keep your code base light for faster page loads.

Tip 6 – Make sure your slicing is high quality

High quality slicing will break your site into smaller components like footers, banner and logos. This highly improves the functionality of the site and leaves the website pleasant to the viewer’s eyes. It makes your website appealing and functional.

Better Choices Than a Nursing Home or Hospital-A True Story!

It’s been a month since my wife, a former nurse yielded to three phone calls from a friend to get her out of the nursing home. When she came to us, she needed a wheel chair–she couldn’t walk, talk or smile. Now she has all three and her humor rewards us!

The average number of prescriptions in a nursing home is 9-13 and these figures are nearly a decade out of date. The benefit to the patient is very low–they are prescribed for the nurses who don’t have to put up with any complaints; the patient is zonked out.

A patient can stand in the hall and fill his or her diaper while staring into space. They will say everything is fine. No brain, no pain, as we said in medical school.

Adverse drug reactions have made medical care a leading cause of death. These reactions put 2.2 million people in hospitals and 106,000 died, “making these reactions between the fourth and sixth leading cause of death.” Journal of American Medical Assoc. 4-15-1998

But how many died at home? 199,000 according to the Western Journal of Medicine… June, 2000. Deaths in and outside hospitals from Rx totaled 305,000 then, with 8 million admissions to the hospital and 3 million for long-term care (nursing homes–these people were messed up for life!)

“From 1998 through 2005, reported serious adverse drug events increased 2.6-fold… fatal adverse drug events increased 2.7-fold… ” Archives of Internal Medicine, Sep 10, 2007, p 1752.

This information makes prescription drugs the #1 cause of death, but we still hear “heart disease… heart disease… heart disease.” That’s a smoke screen for the real culprit, and it justifies giving more drugs for cholesterol, blood pressure, diabetes control when ALL of those conditions are diet related, but never mind–eat as you please and take the prescriptions?

When a patient dies in a nursing home (and half of them do within a year of admission) the doctor signs the death certificate as dying from heart disease in most cases. The heart stopped, but no autopsy is done to discover the coronary arteries are OK and it was probably the drugs that affected the heart rhythm.

So how did Miriam do so well at our place? It’s mainly a low fat vegan diet and none of the prescriptions that she was taking in the nursing home! And her blood sugars (finger stick device) have been lower than at the nursing home. A side benefit to Miriam–only once a day compared to four finger sticks daily in the nursing home.

For more information on reversing most conditions by diet, watch the YouTubes by Drs. Daniel Amen, Neal Barnard, Colin Campbell, Caldwell Esselstyn, Michael Gregor, John McDougal and Neil Nedley. “The life you save may be your own.”

They are totally at odds with the medical establishment and drugging industry that has congress on their side because they donate to their re-election campaigns. The damnable greed of media for their advertising dollar is also part of the problem.

Oddly enough, the Bible was 2000 years ahead of medical science when it said the nations were deceived by sorcery where the Greek word for sorcery is pharmakeia in Revelation 18:23. This is not the only truth that translators have hidden.

Nurse Jackie’s Hospital Administrator

Nurse Jackie is one of Showtime’s hottest shows this season. Featuring Edie Falco, an HBO veteran from the hit The Sopranos, as an amoral emergency room nurse dedicated to saving lives, while cheating on her husband and indulging in powerful painkillers to combat her back pain, the show transcends typical medicine dramas popular in primetime television by focusing on those who heal, not those who diagnose.

This Showtime drama also features The West Wing’s Anna Deavere Smith as Gloria Akalitus, a nurse-turned-hospital administrator. Akalitus is the butt of many a joke in the show, getting giddy off of Jackie’s Percocet-laced coffee, accidentally tazering herself in an elevator, and questioning a gay nurse about how to obtain adoption papers for a child left at a nursing station.

Where lies the line between fact and fiction in the characterization of this hospital administrator? Frankly, the line zig-zags. Hospital administrators play an important part in the inner workings of the hospital, and help to keep everything running smoothly. But in a dark comedy like Nurse Jackie, Akalitus is a walking punch line, providing a much needed dose of laughter amidst so much darkness. However, if her employees behaved themselves, Akalitus would most likely seem like an average nursing supervisor.

In one notable episode, Akalitus urges Jackie Peyton to make a dying man vacate a bed due to overcrowding. Jackie asks her to look at the man again, not as a healthcare administrator, but as a nurse. Akalitus allows Jackie until the end of the day to find him another place to stay, because she realizes that he’ll be dying soon.

This aspect of Akalitus’ character may be legitimate. It would be logical for a nurse to become a supervisor. Many hospital administrators began as healthcare workers. However, it’s not a simple jump from nurse to administrator. Most have at least a Masters degree in Health Services Administration, although some pursue degrees in public or business administration. Hospital administrators with financial backgrounds may go on to become Chief Financial Officers or Chief Executive Officers.

Education includes a year of interning in a health care center, and most administrators begin as administrative assistants for large hospitals, before pursuing higher positions in smaller institutions. Therefore, it’s unlikely that Akalitus would be working alongside her former peers, as she probably would have needed to move elsewhere to find a position.

In another episode, Akalitus stays late to oversee Jackie making the time schedules, having noted that she always seems to be working with friends. One of the responsibilities of the hospital administrator is the maintenance of the budget. The hospital administrator would be responsible for the schedule of the nurses being overseen.

Finally, Gloria Akalitus appears to work alone. This is definitely true. There is often only one hospital administrator in a small hospital, and larger hospitals need a single administrator for each department. All Saints, the fictional hospital at which Nurse Jackie works at, seems like a large hospital. As a result, it would be common for a health care administrator to oversee the entire department alone.

Using Hospital Equipment Leasing to Lower Costs

Health services can vary greatly between different countries around the world. The level of service is greatly dependent on the wealth of the country that you live in. The wealthier the country however, doesn’t mean the better the hospitals and health services are. For example, in America and Australia, which are two wealthy western countries, the public health services are always under scrutiny because of there performance, or lack thereof. Hospitals need a lot of money to function properly. The lack of doctors and nurses can also contribute to the lack of beds and rooms available in hospitals.

Providing good health services is a big problem in a lot of countries. The private health sector is generally more reliable than the public funded sector. This can be attributed to wealthy people and wealthy institutions and also paying a lot of extra money to be treated. Some people simply can’t afford the high premiums one must pay for these services. A big problem with hospitals generally and why they are expensive or why the service leaves something to be desired, is the equipment state. The equipment is the backbone of a hospital and when there is a lack of good equipment, the patients, nurses and doctors all suffer.

The equipment types in a hospital vary greatly. There needs to be a great variety of equipment in a hospital to be able to diagnose patients quickly and efficiently. Types of diagnostic equipment you will find in a hospital include, x-ray machines, CAT machines, MRI’s and simple tools such as stethoscopes, blood pressure reading devices and thermometers. There is also the surgical equipment which is included in the large majority of bigger hospitals. These surgical tools have to be in very good condition and sterile as they are crucial in preserving doctor and patient safety by preventing infection.

When you add together the value of all of the equipment needed in a hospital, it comes to quite a large sum. This is the reason why many hospitals decide to lease their equipment instead of buying it. The first thing this saves, is the money that would be needed to make the large capital purchases. This money can be used to help their patient care sector improve. Lenders who are involved with hospitals often make their leasing agreements as flexible as possible. This helps the firms out greatly. As within a lot of sectors, the state-of-the-art technology in hospital equipment changes rapidly. Leasing can help prevent technological obsolescence with the equipment within a hospital.

The idea of leasing can also have tax advantages as it changes the financial risk within a company. To lease equipment for hospitals is not a completely new idea, with it becoming increasingly popular in the last years. This is great both for the hospitals themselves and also the patients. Having all been patients of hospitals in some time in our lives, it is good to know that they have options to remain financially stable and also make it cheaper for us to use their services.

Par Level Vs Kanban Methods – Which One For Hospital Material Management?

We have uncovered an opportunity that could mean millions of dollars in savings to individual hospitals, and billions of dollars to the healthcare system nationally in the US and abroad. It has to do with how most hospitals manage supplies, medications and other materials.

Many, maybe most, hospitals manage their inventory of supplies and medications using what is called a “par-level” method. It works like this: a stocking quantity is established for each item, the par level, based on average usage and a target number of days supply. We might, for example, set a goal of maintaining a two-day quantity of material for each supply item. As the material is actually used, we would bring the quantities “up to par” daily, by conducting a physical inventory and restocking the quantity that was consumed. The goal, sensibly, is to not run out of supplies while maintaining a tight control of storage space and inventory quantities. So far so good.

It is interesting to note that this par method of inventory control is not used in a world-class manufacturing environment, although a manufacturer certainly has the same needs and goals for inventory control as a hospital. The suggestion that we do a daily physical inventory for a large number of inventory items would be greeted with astonishment and ridicule. Many world-class manufacturing companies do not even conduct an annual inventory, by sustaining a high level of inventory accuracy through tight controls and cycle counting.

The method of choice in manufacturing for commonly used items is called Kanban. In a Kanban system, as with the par level method, we set a target quantity that we want to maintain. The principal difference is that instead of attempting to bring quantities “up to par” daily, in a Kanban system we set a fixed quantity that we will use to trigger the replenishment of inventory. In a “two-bin” kanban system, for example, we set up two quantities or bins of the same supply, and only refill a bin when it is empty. While the bin is being refilled, we have a second bin to cover usage during the replenishment cycle.

The Kanban method has seven main advantages over a Par-level system:

1. No daily counting is needed. We wait for a bin to be emptied and always replenish the same quantity. Not having to count can save hundreds or thousands of hours per year in most hospitals.

2. It reduces the number of resupply trips. Since we do not refill a Kanban bin daily, but instead wait for it to be empty, the number of replenishment trips can be reduced significantly. The number of replenishment cycles can be cut by 50% or more.

3. Replenishment quantities are fixed. The refilling process is greatly simplified by eliminating the need for counting required by the par system. If we know ahead of time what the refill quantity will be, the item can be stocked in that quantity.

4. It is easier to manage and improve. By tracking the time between replenishment, the stocking quantities can more easily be refined and adjusted over time. This continuous improvement is more difficult to accomplish if all quantities are refilled daily, in varying quantities.

5. Kanban reduces inventory. Experience proves that, with the same target coverage of supplies, a Kanban system will run with up to 50% less inventory than a par system.

6. It is easier to maintain replenishment discipline. Since they do not have to count all inventory locations, or eye-ball the empty bins, supplies handlers find it easier to identify and refill the empty bins, thereby substantially reducing the opportunities for shortages.

7. Kanban promotes good inventory management practices, while the par level does not. In fact, counting everything is essentially impossible and very labor intensive, and most par-level users simply “eye-ball” the bins without counting. Organization and housekeeping, “5S” in lean terms, is much easier to maintain.

For all of these reasons, Kanban is the method of choice for hospital material management, for much of the material that is procured and managed. The gains in productivity, reduced shortages and reduced inventory represent a multi-billion dollar opportunity for the industry.

Three Recommended Hospitals in Alexandria, Egypt.

Alexandria is the ancient city founded by Alexander the Great. It is currently the second largest city in Europe as well as a major center of international shipping industry and a prominent trading center. The city located in north-central Egypt is the most well known tourist center in the country. In general, health care systems in Alexandria are well developed with many good hospitals in both public and private sectors. Some of the major hospitals are truly world class and offer the services of English speaking staff. This is a description of some of the major hospitals in Alexandria.

Alexandria University Hospital located at Al-Azarita, Midan Al-Khartom, Alexandria is one of the largest health care centers in Egypt. Faculty of Medicine of Alexandria University has been providing modern and effective medical service to people since1942.

Hospital Information Software: Bang for the Buck

Hospitals must look ahead to get the most out of their investments in technology. Administrators may compare the sticker price of new IT system packages, but cost considerations should include ease of implementation, time needed for staff training, interface with existing systems, data security, and use of light weight coding that does not become cumbersome to the larger system.

Technology in the hospital setting is no longer just a chip that makes an automatic blood pressure cuff cycle at programmed intervals. Software programs control data collection, and storage, in all aspects of patient care; from patient admission physicals, to creating the bill. Technology is a line item on the modern hospital budget, and it’s not going away.

Traditionally, Hospital Information Technology, and Health IT in general, has made use of many parallel systems with overlapping parts. Points of data entry that developed to store information on patients developed from multiple arenas before computer networking protocols allowed electronic file transfers between machines. Laboratory testing, MARs, (Medication Administration Records), and other sources of electronically stored data, progressed into computerized Kardexes, Nursing Care Plans, physician dictated Operative Reports, and Nursing Intervention checklists, to name a few.

Good IT infrastructure pays for itself. The hidden cost of maintaining outdated systems include more than random call tickets for tech support. Frequent rebooting of buggy software may cause increased wait times for patients and staff alike. Lack of reliable interfaces between systems degrades interdepartmental communication. Unavailable lab results may cause tests to be repeated. Staff frustration and hostility can result from having to work with substandard equipment. The patient who observes system inefficiencies may loose confidence.

Doctors, nurses, and other clinicians rely on Hospital Information Systems to meet patient needs.
Making health care data accessible to providers in a fluid manner translates into more efficient work flow at the bedside. Limiting work flow barriers in the hospital also improves patient outcomes.

Focus on buying smart. Cheap is not always less expensive. Hospitals must look ahead to get the most out of their investments in technology and data management.

Plan and implement your best Hospital IT strategy.

  1. Survey staff about problem IT areas
  2. Set technology specific goals
  3. Create a Technology Panel that includes clinician end users, biomedical engineering, faculty, and administrators
  4. Invite a variety of vendors to present, or “pitch” their products to the Technology Panel
  5. Prepare questions and take notes

Short term and long term IT considerations.

  1. How will unit work flow improve?
  2. How much training will staff require?
  3. Where else is the system in place, how is it working?
  4. Is free tech support available, for how long?
  5. Does this system interface well with hardware and software already in use?
  6. Are patient rights to privacy securely protected?
  7. Can electronic records be transferred securely and efficiently?
  8. Can customized data sets be built as needed by hospital IT administrators?
  9. How much down time is needed to maintain the system?
  10. Does this company rank high for customer service?

Get your team on board. Develop realistic goals for Information Technology, take thirty minutes to brainstorm at a staff meeting. List each piece of equipment and every charting system, likes and dislikes, problem areas. Develop questions for vendors. Invite interested parties, get your “end users” invested in the process. Invest in technology that serves people. Decrease the amount of human resources spent serving the technology, and it will be embraced by Nurses, Physicians, and other clinicians that are the ultimate end users.
