Fascinating Concept Of Body Language Body language is a term familiar to most people and most people take advantage of body language in everyday life. Body language is non verbal communication prior to someone articulates, and gives an idea about what is there in the mind of the other person. American president, George Bush senior once used the phrase “ read my lips, no new taxes” in the 1988 Republican National Convention, indicating that even lips are capable of conveying messages.Through body language one person grasps the emotional state such as happiness, sadness, anger, surprise, excitement, fear, confusion of the other person. Non-verbal communication is very primitive,and animals and birds communicate through it.

Foreign Shady Tycoons Making London Their HomeWhen it comes to reputation, Britain ranks the first in the league of countries known for trust, fairness, rule of law and compassion. As a child living in India, I always had high admiration for England, because of their tenacity, perseverance, resolve and sacrifice to set up East India Company and then build an empire on which the sun never sets.

After a week, the ICU doctors thought his brain was dead, and suspended all life support. From then on I was keen to know more about the patients in the ICU. I worked in cardiac surgery in Cardiac Centre at Cottingham, Yorkshire where 3-4 open heart operations were done daily. There I was a doctor in charge of the ICU, looking after post operative cardiac patients. Sometimes after the extubation(removal of endotracheal tube), patients cannot retain blood oxygen level, and then I need to intubate again and re-introduce an endotracheal tube to …
