The most important thing to do is to remain calm. Then find the tooth. Hold it by the crown rather than the root and try to reinsert it in the socket. If that is not possible, put the tooth in a glass of milk and take your child and the glass immediately to the pediatric dentist.

What can I do to protect my child’s teeth during sporting events?

Soft plastic mouthguards can be used to protect a child’s teeth, lips, cheeks and gums from sport related injuries. A custom-fitted mouthguard developed by a pediatric dentist will protect your child from injuries to the teeth, face and even provide protection from severe injuries to the head.

“If Roses grow in Heaven”

If Roses grow in Heaven
Lord, please pick a bunch for me.
Place them in my Mother’s arms
and tell her they’re from me.

Tell her that I love her and miss her,
and when she turns to smile,
place a kiss upon her cheek
and hold her for awhile.

Because remembering her is easy,
I do it every day,
but there’s an ache within my heart
that will never go away.

Amazon’s tax affairs could come under more scrutiny in Britain, tax experts said, after a judge questioned whether it really was organized in the tax efficient way it said it was.

The ruling comes as big technology groups, including Amazon, face increasing scrutiny in Britain over their tax practices.

A UK judge ruled earlier this month that Amazon had infringed the trademark of soap maker Lush by posting advertisements on Google mentioning “Lush soap” and by offering customers who searched for “Lush soap” on its own website a list of options.

Since Lush products were not available on Amazon’s UK website – on the manufacturer’s insistence – the judge ruled customers could be confused.

Amazon did not respond to requests for comment. Lush said it welcomed the ruling.

In addition to denying infringement, Amazon said only its main European operating subsidiary, Luxembourg-based Amazon EU Sarl., and not the group’s UK subsidiary, Amazon.co.uk Ltd, should be a defendant.

Amazon argued Amazon.co.uk Ltd had no case to answer because Amazon EU Sarl ran the UK business from Luxembourg, and that the British subsidiary simply provided services such as warehousing to the Amazon group.

This structure is also the basis of Amazon’s claim that its retail business doesn’t have a tax residence in Britain – and that therefore, all revenues and profits should be declared in low-tax Luxembourg.

But the judge said Amazon’s depiction of the role of the UK unit was “wholly unreal and divorced from the commercial reality of the situation”.

David Quentin, a lawyer with Stone King who has advised campaign group the Tax Justice Network, said the ‘tortfeasance’ rules that applied in the Lush case were different to those that govern tax cases.

Hence, the ruling previously reported in Private Eye magazine did not set a precedent that would overturn Amazon’s tax arrangements, he said.

However, Ray McCann, a former tax inspector who works with law firm Pinsent Masons, said the ruling could encourage the tax authority, Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs, to take a closer look at Amazon’s structure.

“Since who does what is key to an analysis of a company’s tax status, and Amazon’s “who was responsible for what” arguments were not accepted by the court, it could mean that HMRC might look more critically at what Amazon has been saying,” he said.

HMRC declined comment.

This article is based on http://www.dukandiet.co.uk/ and www.idiaitamou.gr/diaita-dukan.html

To lose weight when there is an abundance of food around you is not natural, is difficult and often unsuccessful. The Dukan method proposes a healthy eating plan that returns to the foods which founded the human species, those eaten by primitive man, the hunter-gatherers, proteins and vegetables, 100 foods including 72 from the animal world and 28 from the plant world. These foods come with the magic words: “AS MUCH AS YOU LIKE”.

Slimming advice for natural weight loss One of the major advantages of our slimming method is its strong integrated support structure. If you follow our healthy diet plan to the letter, you will lose weight regularly. A method for losing and stabilizing your weight in 4 Dukan Diet phases 4 phases which occupy the dieter from day one so that they never again feel like abandoning the diet. 4 phases, from the strongest, most supported and effective, to the most open and stabilizing. 4 phases to be carried out successively in order to reach the ideal weight target: lose weight naturally, rapidly and stabilize for good.

Below are the 4 Dukan Diet stages:

1 – Dukan Diet Phase 1- The Attack Phase.  A brief and headlong ATTACK phase with immediate results. During this phase, the diet is made up of 72 high-protein foods enabling quick weight loss.

2 – Dukan Diet Phase 2- The CRUISE Phase.  This second phase is leading to the True Weight. During this phase, the diet alternates Pure Protein days (PP phases) and Proteins accompanied with 28 recommended Vegetables (PV phases).

3 – Dukan Diet Phase 3- The CONSOLIDATION PHASE. In this third phase   of 10 days per kg lost which prepares for the return to a balanced diet. Monitored freedom with a target of establishing this freshly conquered and still vulnerable ideal weight. This phase sees the gradual return of pleasurable foods with two festive meals.

4 – A definitive stabilization phase based on 3 simple, concrete, easy but non-negotiable measures. This phase is both the easiest and most essential in our slimming method because 95% of people who follow a diet put back on the weight they have lost.

A planetary success

The Dukanian community on the Internet

One morning in May 2000 a Quebec woman who had followed the Dukan diet wrote a message expressing her satisfaction in a forum. This was the start of a unique adventure, the spontaneous creation of a community of women-supporters who, having lost weight and stabilized their weight, were so happy about it that they formed a group to share it with others.

It was this enthusiasm and this willingness to share, so rare in modern times, which acted as an amplifier for broadcasting the Dukan method by bringing it legitimacy, an audience and millions of new users.

There are now more than one hundred forums, sites and blogs entirely dedicated to the Dukan method, in which thousands of volunteers with very few resources but with a lot of heart work to advocate this method. There are too many to cite here, but all express their enthusiasm and their gratitude in their choice of usernames, which are as affectionate as their blogs: duduche, dukanons, dukanettes, dukaniennes, dudufamily, Pierre Dukan’s girls. These forums have also spread to aufeminin.com, elle.fr, doctissimo.fr, supertoinette.fr amonst others.

All these Dukaniennes work to educate, support and help Internet users who are following the Dukan diet. Find them on the DukanDiet.co.uk forum.

French doctors

The French medical establishment, in common with all Western countries, feels helpless faced with the steady rise in obesity that the WHO (World Health Organisation) describes as the “first non-infectious epidemic”. Medicines to treat it are rare and of limited use, sufferers try diet after diet demonstrating the absence of consensus on any effective method. Given this context, many general practitioners, struck by the results obtained by their patients and especially by their long-term weight stabilization, have adopted the Dukan method, either by learning it and applying it to their patients, or by advising them to buy the Dukan Diet book.

One method for all

The Dukan method has now been translated into 10 languages and is sold in more than 20 countries and cultures as far flung as Korea, Russia or Bulgaria… All these arguments combined led Pierre Dukan to remark during a medical conference: “This mobilisation of converted users, a word-of-mouth movement powerful enough to cross cultures and frontiers, aided by the support of the medical establishment leads me to think that perhaps I have touched on a universal dimension of weight loss. A method which uses natural eating to counteract poor cultural dietary habits linked to over-abundance which leads to the excess weight problems we are seeing today.”

Web directories essentially serve as a catalog of links sorted by relevant topics. In the earlier days, when search engines weren’t as popular, directories served as the main method of finding relevant sites. But nowadays, search engines like Google and Yahoo have taken over and serve as the main medium that connects users with what they’re looking for.

So why should you even consider submitting your site to the directories, especially when not many people use them any more?

There are a few answers to this question:

  • To get your website indexed Search engines like Google and Yahoo send out crawlers (spiders) to search the web for new sites that come up everyday. If you have a new site and you want search engines to know of its existence, then there couldn’t be an easier and better way to let a search engine know than having it find your site through links in various directories.
  • One way links -> Improvement in Search Engine Rankings Most directories provide one way links, which is beneficial from the SEO aspect of your site. Search engines give importance to the number of inbound links to your site when ranking it for a given position during search and one way links are thought to be valued more than reciprocal links (links exchanged with other sites). Thus, directory links can help give a boost to your SEO efforts.
  • Targeting specific keywords / phrases Most directories allow you to provide a link with keywords describing your site. It’s not easy getting links to your site with the keywords you want and directories serve as the easiest medium for getting such links. Getting links with targeted keywords / phrases can have search engines favoring your site over others when ranking for the given terms.
  • Traffic (not such a benefit with most directories) There aren’t many directories that could boast of providing your site with traffic that would number in the hundreds per day but there are a few directories that are known to give some traffic (albeit very little) to sites in certain categories.
  • Most directories are free to submit toGiven the benefits and most directories being free to submit to, it makes business sense to having your site listed in as many SEO friendly directories as possible. After all, you don’t lose anything for doing so.Submitting to directories can be a time-consuming process though and finding the right directories to submit can take quite a bit of effort. To save yourself the trouble, you may use directory submission service like ours to get your site submitted to all the top quality SEO friendly directories out there. We have a sizeable team of directory submitters who are well-trained in submitting to web directories.
