Digital Electronic Stethoscope

I came across this funny weired but may be great idea of a new stethoscope , here what they say about it in their web site



Amplify Mode with Adjustable Volume - amplifies up to 50X with continuously-adjustable Volume Control to set the desired augmentation for each patient. Increase Volume for faint heart sounds, obese patients or noisy environments. Use moderate Volume for children with loud heart sounds.
Acoustic Mode - electronically provides the sound of a conventional stethoscope without the losses of air tubing. Provides a painless transition from old stethoscope technology - just click to Acoustic mode, and listen to a crystal-clear version of a conventional stethoscope.
Ambient Noise Rejection, 2nd-Generation (ANR2) - Activate noise rejection in high-noise environments, or deactivate in quiet office settings. Adapts to your work environment so you're not compromising your physical exams.

Mute
- When patients chat, cough, or cry, simply mute the sound until you're ready to listen. An example of the attention to detail that makes the ds32a stand out.
Programmable Preferences - Preset the ds32a to your preferred auto shut-off time (2-5 minutes) and favorite operating modes, so it powers up already set for you. Your ds32a learns to follow your workflow so you can focus on the patient.
Audio Input/Output - Connect your stethoscope to your iPod or mp3 or notebook for recording and listen to heart sounds on your stethoscope, for accurate audio reproduction. Interfaces with ease to existing audio equipment. Use free software for data visualization.
Cables included.

but hey with all that it still doesn't give you the diagnosis , I wonder when they gonna make one that tells you the diagnosis , and it would be more fun if they make it an MP3 player too .

الخانب

because it's so difficult to describe it in English and even harder to understand it for non Libyans I decided to write abut this thing happened to me the other day in Libyan.

كنت مروح من صلاة الظهر لقيت زحمة فى الشارع , مجموعة ملتمين على واحد و مجموعة اكبر تتفرج عليهم , وزى أى ليبي فإن أى مشكلة فى شارعنا لابد ما نحشي خشمى فيها ونعرف شنى صاير , وصلت لنص الزحمة لقيت اولاد شارعنا شادين واح عبيد الباين انه مش ليبى .
غير صلو على النبى يا جماعة الخير شني فيه
خانب , قال واحد بصوت عالى يلعلع
الشباب كان ناقصهم غير التكبير بعد ما سمعو كلمة خانب وبدو فى الخانب تعنفيق و كل واحد يشح فيه من جيهة , انحزت فى الاخير لكن صاحبنا الخانب مسكين معاش تعرف وجهه من قفاه, ركبوه فى سيارة وطارو بيه لمركز الشرطة , طبعا فى ليبيا الشعب فى خدمة الشرطة انت اللى تشد الخانب و انت اللى ترفعهوهم للمركز وناقص غير يقولولك احبسه فى حوشكم , المهم مش هادا موضوعنا , بعد محاورات مع الشباب عرفت شني المشكلة و عرفت صاحب المحل اللى خنب منه صاحبنا الخانب المسكين , لكن المشكلة هدا محل نظارات يعنى اكيد خنب منه فلوس , هدرزت على صاحب المحل نبى نعرف شنى صار , صاحبنا خنب نظارة . خلاص ضاقت عليه الدنيا معاش لقي شني يخنب غير نظارة لا وشنى نظارة طبية زيادة مش شمسية , انا على طول تذكرت المثل الليبى اللي يقول عمية وشدت خانب , لكن المرة هذى الباين حتى الخانب أعمى,انا قاعد حاير شنى كان يبي يديير بالنظارة اللى خنبها.
باهى توا نجو لحكاية التعنفيق , الصراحة انى مامديتش ايدى على الخانب لكن تقريبا اكثر من 10 شباب حصلو فيه على الاقل تعنفيقة وحدة , وهذا يوضح قداش الشعب الليبى متكافل و متعاون مع بعضه لكن فى التعنفيق بس وهدا علاش جى المثل متاع عمية وشدت خانب والباين اولاد الشارع كلهم عمى وماصدقو طاحو فى خانب .
انا مريت بمشكلة التعنفيق هذى مرة وحدة فى حياتى وانشاء الله معاش تتعاود, من سنتين فاتو كنت طالع من الساحة الخضراء بالسيارة وكان فيه واحد قاص على رجليه وما انتبهتلاش وماوقفتلاش و معجباش اللى صار وضرب السيارة برجله ولا بيده مش عارف وقعد يفتفت ويقلل فى ادبه , انى صخنت نزلتله من السيار وقلتله خيرك شنى فيه , زاد منن الدوة الفاضية شديته مع سوريته وخنقته و فى ثوانى جميع الاشكال المعفنة والمصيصة جت تجرى من جيهة باب الحرية ومن عمر المختار و رخيت صاحبنا و بدو يشحو فيا من كل جيهة وانى ضلمت عليا معاش فيه كيف نهرب , محدش بدى يضرب يشنتلو فيا بس و ما نبيش نقول كانو اكثر من خمسين نفر ملتمين عليا لان أخر حاجة كنت نفكر فيها هى انى نعدهم , الصراحة كنت نفكر فى سيارتى شنى بيصير فيها , وللعلم سيارة النجدة كانت واقفة مقابلنا ولكن لا حياة لمن تنادى , الكلام هذا كله كان اقل من دقيقة , وباش ما نعطلش وما نديرش روحى بطل وكيف طلعت من المشكلة هذى خلى نقوللكم الاعجوبة اللى صارت , من وسط الزحمة المصيصين بدو يوسعو معرفتش علاش لكن لما شبحت المخلوق اللى خاش للنص تمنيت حتى انى نوسعله معاهم , لما بدا يتكلم عرفته انه من البشر لان شكله ما يوحيش بأي ملامح انسان, شنى فيه قال والكل ردو بصوت واحد كان بيضرب سموعة, شبحلى من فوق لى لوطا والباين سخف عليا حط ايده على كتفى وعطانى عنفقة مش حننساها طول حياتى , قالى روح ومعاش نبى نشبح وجهك فى الجيهة هذى وطبعا مع اضافة بعض الكلمات اللى متنقالش .
انا مش فخور باللى صار لكن لولا هالعنفقة لكانو مسحو بيا الساحة مسح , والرجولة تحضر وتغيب فايللى تعنفق فالناس اليوم غدوة نهارك احرف.



the summary for the whole thing is that the other day a shop lifter got caught in my neighborhood and the weired funny thing was the thing he stole , it was a pair of glasses not sunglasses but a optical glasses ,I wonder what he wanted to do with them .

Lost again

Again not this time , thats what the Emarati team said to the omani team today , the cup stayed home and the Omani had lost it again in the final , this time I can't blame the luck for the Omani's loss , the first half was ok for both teams and they didn't threaten eachother and the only thing I saw was players kicking each other , but as soon as the second half started it was obvious that the Omani coach Macala said one thing to the players Get me a goal and do it as soon as you can and I dont care how , this lead to good chances after 15 minutes of the second half , we saw the Omanis about to score but suddenly they lost it all with a great counter attack finished so well by Isamil Matar , that guy really deserved to get the best player's award in this tournament , and thats it was for the Emarati team they didn't have hard time keeping their goal clean for the rest of the game , time was going fast and the changes the Omani coach did at the end were too late to be effective , Mabrook for the Emarati team and inshallah the Omani team will make it in 2009 at their home .

Don't you think that Ismail matar looks like 50 cent or waht?
Lebeeya , don't worry you will get to see Oman wining home inshallah and you will see it live .

عاشوراء

اليوم هو العاشر من محرم ( يوم عشوراء ) , تقبل الله صيامكم بالنسبة للصائمين واللذى لم يصم هذه السنة فلعل قرأة هذه السطور تريه أجر صيام هذا اليوم.
أولا ـ تعريف اسم (عاشوراء) :
كذا بالمد على المشهور وحكى القلعي قصرهما فتعقبه النووي بقوله : وهو شاذ أو باطل .
وقال القاضي عياض في (مشارق الأنوار): عاشوراء اسم إسلامي لا يعرف في الجاهلية، لأنه ليس في كلامهم فاعولاء.
ومعنى عاشوراء أي اليوم العاشر من المحرم .

ثانيا ـ الحث على صيامه :
وردت جملة من الأحاديث الصحيحة التي تأكد استحباب صيام هذا اليوم ومن هذه الأحاديث:
1 ـ عن عائشة رضي الله عنها قالت : ثم كانت قريش تصوم عاشوراء في الجاهلية وكان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يصومه فلما هاجر إلى المدينة صامه وأمر بصيامه فلما فرض شهر رمضان قال من شاء صامه ومن شاء تركه . رواه الشيخان .
2 ـ وعن بن عباس ـ رضي الله عنهما ـ ثم أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قدم المدينة فوجد اليهود صياما يوم عاشوراء فقال لهم رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : (ما هذا اليوم الذي تصومونه؟!) .
فقالوا : هذا يوم عظيم أنجى الله فيه موسى وقومه وغرق فرعون وقومه فصامه موسى شكرا فنحن نصومه !
فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : (فنحن أحق وأولى بموسى منكم) فصامه رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم وأمر بصيامه. رواه الشيخان .

ثالثا ـ أي يوم يصام في عاشوراء :
يتعين على من صام يوم عاشوراء صيام يوم قبله أي (تاسوعاء) أو بعده (الحادي عشر) وذلك لما ثبت عن عبد الله بن عباس ـ رضي الله عنهما ـ قال: حين صام رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يوم عاشوراء وأمر بصيامه قالوا : ثم يا رسول الله إنه يوم تعظمه اليهود والنصارى!! فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : (فإذا كان العام المقبل ـ إن شاء الله ـ صمنا اليوم التاسع) .
قال : فلم يأت العام المقبل حتى توفي رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم. رواه مسلم .

Gulf Cup

I didn't start watching the gulf cup until the semifinals and I think I didn't miss anything , the games were so boring and all four teams suck , I think if I was a khaleegi guy I would be so excited because all the games are revenge and competitive matches ,and I know if anyone watches a game between el ahli and iti7ad in Libya would think what a stupid game but competition is what makes it bring 80 thousand fan .
I am a fan of the Omani team ( not because of you Lebeeya) , I think they deserve it especially after they lost the last cup unfairly against Qatar , they have really great team and they have a style in playing unlike many other Khaleeji teams .
2-1 ended the opening match between Oman and Emarites and I hope they end it the same way, but since Emarites are playing home and they woke up from the first slap , they have a big chance for ruining this for me and the Omanis , plus they have this great player called Ismael Matar who scored a really great goal against saudia arabia , it showed that he got skills .

Ronaldo is gone


I don't know if it's for the good or for the bad , but the legend Ronaldo had left Meal Madrid , he hasn't been giving any effort lately but I will always say if Ronaldo was in this chance it would be a goal unlike who ever lost the chance , my problem is with the club he went to , it's Ac Milan the club that I hate so much ,for personal reasons I hate Ac Milan just because my friends love it and they think it's the best team in the world , so I wish for Ronaldo to continue to be as lazy as he was in Real Madrid , but even with his best effort I don't think he can give them anything further than this year .
Ronaldo you will be alway remembered as one of the football's legends and it was nice that you didn't end up at Aliti7ad the saudi club with their crazy manager they have Mansoor El bloi .

عنترة بن شداد

إذا كشفَ الزَّمانُ لك القِناعا *** ومَدَّ إليْكَ صَرْفُ الدَّهر باعا
فلا تخشَ المنية َ والتقيها *** ودافع ما استطعتَ لها دفاعاً
ولا تخترْ فراشاً من حريرٍ *** ولا تبكِ المنازلَ والبقاعا
وحَوْلَكَ نِسْوَة ٌ ينْدُبْنَ حزْناً *** ويهتكنَ البراقعَ واللقاعا
يقولُ لكَ الطبيبُ دواك عندي *** إذا ما جسَّ كفكَ والذراعا
ولو عرَفَ الطَّبيبُ دواءَ داء *** يَرُدّ المَوْتَ ما قَاسَى النّزَاعا
وفي يوْم المَصانع قد تَركنا *** لنا بفعالنا خبراً مشاعاً
أقمنا بالذوابل سُوق حربٍ *** وصيَّرنا النفوس لها متاعا
حصاني كانَ دلاّل المنايا *** فخاض غُبارها وشَرى وباعا
وسَيفي كان في الهيْجا طَبيباً *** يداوي رأسَ من يشكو الصداع
أَنا العبْدُ الَّذي خُبّرْتَ عَنْهُ *** وقد عاينْتَني فدعِ السَّماعا
ولو أرْسلْتُ رُمحي معْ جَبانٍ *** لكانَ بهيْبتي يلْقى السِّباعا
ملأْتُ الأَرضْ خوْفاً منْ حُسامِي *** وخصمي لم يجدْ فيها اتساعا
إذا الأَبْطالُ فَرَّت خوْفَ بأْسي *** ترى الأقطار باعاً أو ذراعا

It is over

It's over , it's over , IT IS OVERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
yes I am so happy , actually I cant describe how happy I am that I finished my exams , finally I can wake up in the morning without thinking of how many things I have to finish in the day or count how many days left until the exam , finally I can leave my room without my watch , finally I can watch TV , movies , read some books , finally I can sit on the computer till my eyes drop , finally I can go out with my friends , after three months in prison I didn't do anything except studying and sleeping , I am not a hard worker nor smart but I had to do it this way I wanted to get over with it and inshallah rabi ystir .


My mom was happier than me when I came home , she has been waiting for me to finish for a long time because she had so many things for me to clean and do at home , first she welcomed me with a big carpet ( bsa6) that needs washing , Yes we are a family that wash carpets at home but we never hang it through the top of our house , at home everyone has his job and washing the carpets is one of the things I am responsible of , so thats how I relieved my stress yesterday pushing the brush harder on the carpet , then of course I had to sayig all the outside , I know you are all thinking that the girl I would marry would be so lucky but believe I am doing this only for my mom and not because I love doing it , and what you see in the picture is part of what I do to make this quite fun .


I don't think I will rest until the results come out which will be withing one month so id3oli .

Clinical Exam

Today I did my clinical exam in Medicine which is the last subject I have and I still have an oral exam on Tuesday after that I am exams free at least until the results come out .

I didn't do so well today though I don't know why , was the defect in me, in the patient or was it in the examiners , let me first tell you how the Medicine clinical exams go , we have five exams divided into one long case in which you sit with the patient for one hour history taking and doing complete physical examination ( not enough time for all that at all ) , then you go to two examiners and they discuss and ask you about this case for 20 minutes ( feels like 20 years) , the other four exams are short cases exams where you go with two examiners to the patient and they ask you to preform certain examination like examine the respiratory system in this patient and they give you five minutes for that then they will ask you about your findings , the short case exam is 15 minutes each but it feels like one hour , one of the four short cases is Dermatology case and since we had dermatology two years ago it's so difficult remembering anything now .
I start my exam on the long case at 7:30 , yes in the morning , the first few words with the patients were like this
صباح الخير كيف حالك اليوم
الحمد لله بخير
الاسم الكريم
................
خير لاباس من شنى تشكى
ما فيا شى دخلونى للمستشفى على خاطر الامتحان وانى والله ما عندى خلوق لهدا كله
since the moment she said I don't feel like talking and giving history I knew this exam will be screwed and the end result will be so bad , I tried being nice and kind and get the information I wanted I even begged her sometimes to answer the questions ,she was so mean and I knew she hide so many things from me , the history taking took all my time and I had ten minutes only to do the complete physical examination and surly I didn't finish that , so the bottom line I screwed this exam , I am not mad cos it wasn't my fault that the patient was so uncooperative and I had to deal with it anyway cos if you refuse they will tell you this is part of the exam ,how to deal with uncooperative patient !! , this is how our university deal with us ,again the same thing you hear everywhere here in Libya خود ولا خلى.

Id3oli and wish me luck .

Sino in the house

for those who doesn't know him , this is my nephew Yaseen , he's 20 months old only, we call him Sino but he call himself Nino , he talks all the time with unknown language and with different accents like he calls the TV Vizioni ( telfizyoon) , he hold books and pretend that he is reading , he know how to switch on and off everything in the house , and he switch the channels of the tv until he find Soom (rosoom/cartoon) , I believe he touched every inch in the house except the ceiling , and he broke most of the vases we have ,his two favorite places at home are the bathroom and under the bed , he loves getting into the bathtub and getting himself wet with the shower , my sister and my mom tried everything to explain to him that this is bad and he shouldn't do it but they didnt manage to , he loves my dad the most and he calls him Ido ( jedo) , and for his age he knows too many words and names than he needs and if you ask him to do anything he would say BAH ( bahi) and do it for you , Yaseen go tell jido lunch is ready ,he says BAH and goes all the way upstairs and look for my dad and tell him Ido kool aya ( jido kool haya) , and once I had the guys over at home and he wouldn't leave us and go out of the room until I told him bara gool li mama hati fhdsufhieriu so he went to my mom and told her mama ati dsjkheue and he wouldnt leave her till he made her come to the room and ask me what I wanted , sometimes he is annoying and I hide from him but he knows how to open all the doors so we had to change the main door's handel into the round ones , and even if he comes to my room and find it locked he would knock and knock and knock and say ata7 ( afta7) until I open for him , but he is adorable most of the time especially when he plays with toys by himself and it's so much fun watching him cos he talks while playing , he holds his teddy bear and say doba ( his teddy's name) ata ( hata ) and he answer himself BAH then he brings the lego and tell the other toys Khoda , and since he is very active he eats alot and he eats anything you feed him except egg we dont know why , but what he loves the most is dadi (zabadi) and inna ( jebna) and he is still drinking milk from the bottle and I think this is the only word he says right sheesha , and when he want it he starts shouting sheesha , alliba ( 7aleeb) , it is so much fun having him around , I never thought I would like kids this much until we had him , I hope he always stay this cute and small .

Iit's been a really long time since the last ime I used the internet and to tell you the truth I didnt want to come back to the internet world before i finihs my exams but I had no choice , I had to pay for the ADSL this month or else LTT will cut the service and I have to pay extra 50 dinars to get it back , they work wiht the Libyan saying خود ولا خلى and since there is no one else providing ADSL so I choose خود and I have to take all the shit from them , I am also here to tell you Happy New Years guys and Happy Eid as well although it's quite late ,and I also have special thanx for Libeeya , thank you for the lovely card .

Well I am still studying because I only finished two exams Surgery and Paediatrics and I still have one to come which is the worst one it's the Medicine exam , any way I did ok in the surgery but in the paediatrics I did some mistakes in the clinical exam that might make me fail , but I learned my lesson , never argue with the examiner even you know you are right .

Eid was so quick for me , I finished helping my family with the Kabish very early and I went to my home town 140 km from tripoli visited my father's side of the family then went to my mother's home town to visit most of my relatives there then came home late at night and slept and the second day I woke up studying again .

Of course as everyone int he world I saw saw Sadam's execution at the first day of eid and to tell you the truth I got mixed feelings I didnt know if I was relived or sad , He deserved it there is no question about this but on the first day of eid and like this !!, any way for those who think it's a big loss may I remind you that he killed so many people that no one can count and for those who are celebrating this execution may I remind you that his trial was meant to show the world that justice always win but this is not what we saw especially with those men around him saying Moktada Moktada , it was like watching one of those clips from one of those Jama3at while they are executing someone , to me it wasn't such a nice end for the world to show as an example of justice , it was a pure revenge and no matter how bad was this person , it didn't have to end this way .
