Need help figuring out which massage chair features are right for you? Check out these definitions of common massage chair terms that will help you compare models and find the best fit for your lifestyle.
Massage Chair Store recognizes that purchasing a massage chair is a significant investment, and we agree that it should not be taken lightly. We also know that you are going to put a lot of thought into the right massage chair, so we will work hard to help you understand why purchasing a massage chair may be the best decision you have ever made.
First and foremost, when buying a massage chair, it is important to consider the overall cost. When you factor in the cost of trips to a massage therapist or a masseuse, you could be looking at anywhere from $50 to $300+ an hour. To achieve the same therapeutic benefits as a daily session in a chair, you would require multiple visits a month. Factoring in the rising gas prices and inconvenience of driving to and from, the return on investment is generally within a year of your purchase.

The Anatomical Therapeutic Chemical (ATC) classification system and the Defined Daily Dose (DDD) as a measuring unit are recommended by the WHO for drug utilization studies. The system is widely used internationally and the number of users is increasing. The purpose of preparing guidelines is to make information about the ATC/DDD system available to the users.
The members of the WHO International Working Group for Drug Statistics Methodology have given expert advice and comments on the work with these guidelines.
This edition of the Guidelines for ATC classification and DDD assignment is based on the ATC classification index with DDDs valid from January 2017.
The guidelines consist of a general part including information about the procedures and data requirements for ATC/DDD assignment and alterations. The second part of the publication, the interpretative guidelines, describes the different ATC levels down to the 4th level. These guidelines should be consulted whenever the ATC/DDD system is used for drug utilization research. They describe particular issues, which have been discussed and resolved by consensus of the Working Group.
The Guidelines and the ATC index with DDDs are updated annually. Both publications can be ordered as paper copies (English or Spanish versions) from the Centre (order form, see Annex II). A pdf document of the Guidelines and a searchable version of the ATC/DDD index linked to the text from the Guidelines are available on the website http://www.whocc.no (ATC/DDD index).

I’m back on the topic of PDF support! I have written about this a few times in the past with “I thought Studio could handle a PDF?” and “Handling PDFs… is there a best way?“, and this could give people the impression I’m a fan of translating PDF files. But I’m not! If I was asked to handle PDF files for translation I’d do everything I could to get hold of the original source file that was used to create the PDF because this is always going to be a better solution. But the reality of life for many translators is that getting the original source file is not always an option. I was fortunate enough to be able to attend the FIT Conference in Brisbane a few weeks ago and I was surprised at how many freelance translators and agencies I met dealt with large volumes of PDF files from all over the world, often coming from hospitals where the content was a mixture of typed and handwritten material, and almost always on a 24-hr turnaround. The process of dealing with these files is really tricky and normally involves using Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software such as Abbyy Finereader to get the content into Microsoft Word and then a tidy up exercise in Word. All of this takes so long it’s sometimes easier to just recreate the files in Word and translate them as…
Deciding what to eat is part of our daily routine but making a decision can be difficult and depends on different factors such as economic, social, physical and personal. Statistics say that, despite the economic crisis, more consumers prefer organic food even if it is “more expensive than conventional ingredients” (Katsarova, p.2). Last June, the European Parliament and the European Council agreed on new rules regarding organic food in order to “increase consumer trust in organic foodstuffs” and encourage more farmers to produce organic food (European Parliament, 2017). Therefore, the term organic food has been chosen as this week’s IATE Term of the Week.

Questo Glossario mira a definire i termini utilizzati nella Carta di Torino per la conservazione e il trattamento dei veicoli storici.
Esso cerca di armonizzare, dove possibile, i diversi termini utilizzati nel campo dei veicoli storici, ad esempio nel Codice Tecnico FIVA, e i termini professionali per la descrizione e il trattamento dei beni culturali utilizzati a partire dagli anni ’60.
Ciò include importanti riferimenti, compresi i termini stabiliti nella legislazione internazionale in merito ai beni culturali, nei seguenti documenti:
- La Carta di Venezia
- Lo Standard Europeo DIN EN 15898: 2011-2012 (conservazione della proprietà culturale, termini generali e definizioni), dove appropriato;
- Il vocabolario professionale utilizzato dall’ICOM (Consiglio Internazionale dei Musei) e dal Comitato per la Conservazione ICOM.
Si veda anche la nota UNESCO sulla lista dei beni culturali e dei servizi.
La Carta costituisce anche la base della strategia FIVA per sviluppare relazioni con altre organizzazioni per il patrimonio, compreso il Comitato Internazionale per la Conservazione del Patrimonio Industriale (TICCIH) e le sezioni competenti dell’Organizzazione delle Nazioni Unite per l’Educazione, la Scienza e la Cultura (UNESCO). L’obiettivo è quello di ottenere un riconoscimento per la FIVA in quanto organo di riferimento per il patrimonio e la cultura dei veicoli storici.

La Fédération Internationale des Véhicules Anciens (FIVA) è la federazione mondiale dei club di veicoli storici. Sostiene e incoraggia la preservazione (che nel testo inglese è distinta da conservazione) e l’uso responsabile dei veicoli storici in quanto parte del nostro patrimonio tecnico e culturale.
I veicoli storici sono significativi in quanto mezzi di trasporto, in quanto testimoni delle loro origini storiche, dello stato dell’arte tecnica del loro periodo e, ultimo ma non meno importante, per il loro impatto sulla società.
L’ambito di questa Carta include i veicoli terrestri a propulsione meccanica e non su rotaia. Un veicolo viene considerato storico se corrisponde alla Carta e alle definizioni FIVA applicabili.
La Carta può anche includere edifici e artefatti correlati ai veicoli storici e al loro periodo di utilizzo, quali fabbriche, stazioni di rifornimento , strade o piste di velocità.
Per molti anni i proprietari di veicoli storici, i curatori di collezioni di veicoli storici e i restauratori di veicoli storici sono riusciti a salvaguardare, preservare e mantenere i veicoli storici in attività.
Questa Carta è stata approvata dalla FIVA per fornire una guida per le decisioni e i trattamenti connessi ai veicoli storici. La Carta di Torino riunisce i principi guida per l’uso, la manutenzione, la conservazione, il restauro e la riparazione dei veicoli storici.
Questa Carta si basa e trae ispirazione dalla Carta di Venezia (1964) dell’UNESCO, dalla Carta di Barcellona (2003, per le imbarcazioni storiche) e dalla Carta di Riga (2005, per i veicoli storici su rotaia).

FreeAgent launched in 2007, hewn from the frustration that managing company finances was just too damn hard for most small businesses and freelancers. Since then we’ve doggedly stuck to our mantra of demystifying accounting and redefining the relationship people have with their finances.
The associated problems of collapsing tax revenues, capital flight, tax avoidance and evasion and tax competition have emerged as major issues on the global economic agenda. As public concern about the widening divide between the rich and poor escalates, both within and between countries, and the international community comes under increasing pressure to eradicate poverty, not least in the face of deepening crises in many countries, global civil society is paying far greater attention to the rising share of global wealth held in tax havens – or secrecy jurisdictions as we prefer to call them (we use both terms more or less synonymously throughout this briefing paper) – beyond the reach of national tax authorities and the tax dodging that accompanies this phenomenon.
In the space of a decade millions of people have come to realise that secrecy jurisdictions, and the culture of tax abuse they promote, are part of a much deeper problem facing the globalised economy. It is now widely understood that as a result of technological change and capital market liberalisation that allows the free flow of money around the world, rich individuals and multinational corporations (MNCs) can move their money to wherever they wish. Many have relocated their wealth and their profits to offshore secrecy jurisdictions that offer minimal or zero tax rates. This has created enormous problems because, in …

The Financial Secrecy Index ranks jurisdictions according to their secrecy and the scale of their offshore financial activities. A politically neutral ranking, it is a tool for understanding global financial secrecy, tax havens or secrecy jurisdictions, and illicit financial flows or capital flight.
The Financial Secrecy Index is released every two years and it was first launched in 2009. The latest Financial Secrecy Index was launched on November 2, 2015. The next Financial Secrecy Index will be released in January 2018.

The Zales® Jewelers story began in 1924 when Morris (M.B.) Zale, William Zale and Ben Lipshy opened the first Zales Jewelers retail store in Wichita Falls, Texas. Along with offering high quality merchandise at the lowest prices, the store offered a revolutionary credit plan of “a penny down and a dollar a week” on many higher priced items. This marketing strategy proved to be successful, and, paired with exceptional customer service provided by dedicated employees, led to the jeweler’s expansion to 12 stores across Texas and Oklahoma by 1941.
Over the past 90+ years, Zales grew from a single store selling jewelry, appliances and cameras to a major international jewelry corporation. Zales has expanded to over 700 stores and become one of the largest fine jewelers in retail shopping malls across North America and Puerto Rico.

Translating contracts is one of the more lucrative areas of commercial legal translation practice. Yet the act of translating a contract throws up potential issues of legal uncertainty that should be highlighted to clients – pitfalls that are often not initially obvious to the clients, or even to their lawyers.
The translator distils and crafts the concepts and languages of source jurisdiction A and source language A into target language B. You will notice that I omitted to mention jurisdiction B, but that was intentional. By way of illustration, a contract drafted in German in an environment where contractual terms are drafted in accordance with the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany cannot simply be ‘translated’ into an English contract that can be properly interpreted with legal certainty under the laws of England and Wales.
That is not what a professional legal translator does – in the example above, they will transpose the terms of art and legal concepts of a German contract into an understandable form of English. If the source text were an Austrian or Swiss contract also written in German, then the target text in English may well look rather different. And the translated text itself will not …

As John Harvey, MD, FACS, past president of the Medical Association of Georgia, has toured his state to discuss the upcoming Medicare payment transition, he has noticed a trend. “More than half the physicians I have talked to … were not aware of the terms MACRA, MIPS and APMs.” Of course, there are also QPP, ACI and numerous non-initialisms that refer to crucial elements of the law that repeals the sustainable growth rate. Following is a short list of the terms every physician should know before the new payment rules take effect Jan. 1.
Dr. Harvey, a general surgeon, was one of about 100 physicians to attend a recent MACRA educational session in Atlanta that was hosted by the AMA, the Medical Association of Atlanta, the Cobb County Medical Society and the DeKalb Medical Society. Another 100-plus viewed the presentation through a livestreamed webcast. The session provided an overview of the new payment program, compared it with its predecessor, offered a timeline for the program’s implementation and delivered in-depth looks at the four participation options available in its transition year.

This document is a final draft version of the EuroRoadS terminology catalogue. The deliverables D6.9 (Draft) and D6.12 (Final draft/Final) compile definitions of important terms used in the EuroRoadS project and their relations to each other. As many of the terms used in EuroRoadS already exist, the primary goal of the terminology catalogue is a unified use of terms within the project (not only a definition of new terms) and to find a common definition that is most appropriate for the use within the EuroRoadS project.
EuroRoadS will lay the ground for a pan-European road data infrastructure built on identified user requirements. It will be a key for opening up public sector road information, for promoting public-private partnership and for establishment of important applications.
The main objective for the project is to build a platform for a European road data solution through a specification framework. The framework will consist of specifications for data content and data exchange. The European road information solution will be built and maintained taking full advantage of national road data solutions as well as existing standards. It will make national data available to the market in a harmonised, interoperable and quality assured way.
