Proliferation Treatise (aka Counting the Devices)

One reason that listening hours per week per capita to Internet radio are increasing (according to both the annual Arbitron-Edison "Infinite Dial" study and easy math you can do with monthly Triton Digital press releases) and listening hours per week per capita to AM/FM radio seem to be declining (if you're an Arbitron subscriber, check Persons Using Radio (PUR) trends in your market) has got to be due to a number that is sneaking up on us: How many devices do we own that pick up each medium?

Let's do a quick count. I think the answer will be enlightening (or alarming, depending on which side of the fence you feel you're on nowadays):

Regarding the number AM/FM radios I own, even though I'm atypical in that I have lots of emotional connections to the Chicago stations I used to work at, and have friends that still work for various stations in town, my personal count is down:

I spent decades waking up to a clock radio with AM/FM, but my last Sony model went into storage about four years ago as I started using the alarm feature on my smartphone instead.

Like many of you, I used to have a great big stereo system (amplifier, AM/FM receiver, tape deck, CD player, and giant speakers), but that went away in pieces over the last decade as I ripped my CDs onto my iMac and replaced my TV sound system with a soundbar.

I used to have an FM Walkman of one type or another for running, but now, since I use the Nike Plus app on my smartphone for measuring my speed and distance, of course it makes sense to use the same device for accompanying music.

My parents have an AM/FM radio in their kitchen, atop the refrigerator, but I never picked up that habit.

Again, I'm atypical that, as a Chicagoan, I have "cut the cord" on car ownership thanks to an improved CTA (and apps that tell me when buses and trains are due), Uber (better and cheaper than taxis), and Zipcars (car rental by the hour), so no more AM/FM in the car in the garage since there's no more car.

I used to have a compact stereo system in my study, but its one-CD capacity seemed so old-school that it's in "temporary" storage somewhere, replaced by a speaker dock for my iPad.

Total household count: Down in the past decade from six or seven to either one (if I can find my missing iPod Nano, which has FM) or none.

Meanwhile, let's do the count of the number of devices in my household on which I can access Internet radio:

  • Current iPhone 4S
  • Older iPhone (used as alarm clock, etc.)
  • iPad (especially when paired with speaker dock)
  • Apple TV (attached to older TV)
  • PlayStation 3
  • New LG Smart TV (my big splurge of the season) 
  • Decrepit (but still plugged-in) HP Windows 7 PC
  • Seldom-used (due to hideously bad user interface) Dell Windows 8 touchscreen PC
  • Regularly-used iMac
  • Seldom-used laptop (as I transition to becoming a full-time tablet user)
  • Squeezebox Radio (purchased in 2011 but seldom used, as I prefer the iPad in the speaker dock).

So that's generously a 10:1 ratio in favor of Internet radios (of one form or another) over AM/FM radios.

As I said, I'm sure I'm atypical...but feel free try it yourself! And then try it with your parents, your siblings, your friends, and/or your in-laws.

I'll bet the general conclusion will be the same: More active Internet radios than AM/FM radios.

There are fads, and there are trends. (According to the marketing consultants Jack Trout & Al Ries, you want to avoid getting caught up in the former and take the latter seriously.)

This one is a trend.

Jual
obat aborsi
 obat penggugur kandungan
ampuh 100% manjur obat cytotec asli cara menggugurkan kandungan secara alami
dan tuntas tanpa efek samping dan tidak mempengaruhi kehamilan berikut nya,
cocok bagi wanita yang ingin melakukan aborsi dengan kehamilan yang tidak di
inginkan contoh nya korban pemerkosaan,tuntutan kerja,dll….smoga lekas selelai
permasalah anda dengan ada nya layanan kami.

Apakah
Legal Bagi Saya Untuk Menggunakan Layanan Ini?
Kebanyakan negara memberikan izin untuk mengimpor obat dalam jumlah yang
kecil, untuk penggunaan pribadi, dan tidak untuk tujuan komersial.

Perempuan yang tinggal di negara dimana hak-hak perempuan tidak
terpenuhi dan aborsi masih dibatasi, mereka dapat mengatakan bahwa mereka
mengalami keguguran jika mereka memerlukan bantuan medis. Tanda-tanda aborsi
medis sangat mirip dengan keguguran spontan dan sangat sulit untuk dideteksi
apakah perempuan mengkonsumsi obat tertentu.

Aborsi medis pada usia awal kehamilan sangatlah aman dan efektif. Resiko
aborsi medis sangat jauh lebih rendah dibandingkan dengan resiko kehamilan dan
persalinan. Jutaan perempuan di seluruh dunia telah merasakan keberhasilan
penggunaan mifepristone dan misoprostol untuk aborsi awal kehamilan. Bahkan
obat-obat ini tidak memiliki efek jangka panjang bagi kesehatan perempuan.

Aborsi
Medis Memiliki Resiko Yang Kecil
Komplikasi serius pasca aborsi medis sangat jarang terjadi dan jikalau
terjadi dapat ditangani oleh dokter dengan penanganan kasus keguguran alami.
Kemungkinan komplikasi yang sebenarnya sangat jarang terjadi adalah adanya
pendarahan hebat (0.2%) , infeksi (kurang dari 1%) dan berlanjutnya kehamilan
(0,3% sampai usia kehamilan 9 minggu). Komplikasi ini dapat ditangani oleh
dokter dengan penanganan kasus keguguran alami. Hal ini dikarenakan kasus
keguguran alami terjadi sebanyak 15-20% dari semua kasus kehamilan dimana semua
dokter memahami bagaimana menangani kasus keguguran alami – atau aborsi medis

Aborsi
Medis Memiliki Efektivitas Yang Tinggi
Kombinasi antara Mifepristone dan misoprostol memiliki efektivitas yang
tinggi, aman, dan berterima. Aborsi yang komplit (dimana artinya perempuan
tidak perlu perawatan tambahan) dapat terjadi dengan kemungkinan 98% jika
kehamilan masih di bawah usia 9 minggu.

Kira-kira 2-5% perempuan menggunakan kombinasi mifepristone dan
misoprostol membutuhkan perawatan medis tambahan untuk menuntaskan aborsi tidak
komplit, menghentikan kehamilan yang berlanjut, atau mengontrol pendarahan.

Penggunaan misoprostol saja untuk penghentian kehamilan awal dapat
membantu aborsi hingga komplit sampai 84%.
Aborsi medis yang dilakukan pada awal kehamilan jauh lebih efektif dan
aman.

Apakah
Aborsi Saya Berhasil?
Mayoritas perempuan dapat mendeteksi apakah aborsinya berhasil atau
tidak segera setelah menggunakan obat, karena tanda-tanda kehamilan hilang
dengan cepat dan/atau beberapa perempuan mungkin melihat embrio atau kantung
kehamilan. Bahkan jika perempuan merasa ia sudah tidak lagi hamil, penting
untuk memasatikan apakah aborsi berhasil. Perempuan dapat melakukan USG setelah
aborsi medis atau melakukan testpack 3-4 minggu setelah aborsi.

Kapan
Saya Dapat Berhubungan Seks Lagi?

Untuk pencegahan infeksi, perempuan disarankan untuk menghindari
memasukkan benda apapun ke dalam vagina selama kurang lebih satu minggu setelah
aborsi medis.

wilayah anda masing2 agar pesanan bisa langsung di terima anda bisa mengakseh
