Windy City Weather

When I was a kid who loved listening to radio stations like WOKY and WRIT (where a teenage Bob Pittman was a DJ for a while), and later WCFL and WLS, and even later WDAI and WLUP, I was listening to my favorite stations primarily for the music, but they also served lots of other functions in my life — they were my primary sources of weather forecasts, traffic reports, sports scores, and lots more too.

Someday, it's possible that pureplay, Internet-only, music-oriented webcasters like Pandora, Slacker, and AccuRadio may add local service elements like newscasts, weather, sports, traffic, and maybe community events and/or concert calendars. The insertion of such elements is absolutely possible today using current technology. (Operationally, it might require the addition of one employee per market to record fresh audio elements that could be inserted into listeners' streams as appropriate, although I imagine that traffic would need to be sourced from a third-party service.)

But would this make sense in the context of consumers’ needs in 2014? I'm not so sure.

Let's think about weather: In, let's say, 1980, my alternatives were (A) checking the weather forecast in the morning paper, (B) remembering the weather forecast from the previous evening's 10pm TV newscast, (C) calling WE6-1212 for a prerecorded National Weather Service forecast (updated hourly), brought to me by Wisconsin Telephone, or (D) hearing weather forecasts interjected regularly (including full forecasts as part of the top-of-the-hour newscast) on my favorite music radio station.

Of those four approaches, (B) and (D) were my primary approaches and served my needs in the vast majority of cases. TV gave me my overview for the coming day, and radio gave me reminders and updates on a regular basis.

Today, if I want to know the weather forecast, I swipe to the second screen of apps on my smartphone, touch the Yahoo! Weather app (proving, incidentally, that Yahoo! still has a role in my life!), and within a few seconds, thanks to well-designed graphics, I've absorbed a very detailed forecast, complete with hour-by-hour projections through midnight and a five-day forecast thereafter.

I actually absorb more useful information in a few seconds on Yahoo!'s newly-designed app than I would absorb watching a TV weatherman’s five-minute segment. And, thanks to the magic of multitasking, I can do this WHILE I'm listening to a radio app (or my music collection, or during a phone call, or whatever).

So, do I think it would add value to Pandora if they stopped the music at random times of their choosing to push a 20-second forecast onto me? On the whole, I think probably not. Perhaps occasionally I'd find it valuable, but I believe 90% of the time it would be a needless, unappreciated interruption.

Technically, this will get even easier for webcasters to theoretically do in the future as text-to-voice functionality gets better.

However, as a response to consumer need, I think it's an idea whose time has come and gone.

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.
