The Best Ruin Pubs in Budapest

Pic Credit: Unsplash

Ruin pubs are one of the most iconic features of the Hungarian capital of Budapest. Ruin pubs are bars that have been established in the derelict buildings left over from Budapest’s Soviet era and before, and these legendary watering holes make for truly atmospheric places to enjoy the city’s unique culture.

You can’t ignore these lively bars if you’re looking for something to do at night in Budapest. Drop off your unneeded bags at a Budapest luggage storage and get ready to enjoy a fun night out.

Are Women in Ireland More Likely to be Misdiagnosed Than Men?

Are Women in Ireland More Likely to be Misdiagnosed Than Men?

In this article, we’ll be exploring whether there is an apparent ‘gender health gap’ in Ireland…

In Ireland, new studies into women’s healthcare have found a medical bias, with women being medically misdiagnosed more than their male counterpart. There are a number of reasons that can account for this gender health gap, including women feeling like they’re not being listened to or taken seriously when they speak to their GPs and consultants.

There is also increasing scientific evidence to suggest that men and women’s bodies differ on a cellular level upwards, and should therefore receive different care and treatment. Despite these revelations, a blanket approach is still being applied when treating men and women.

Researchers believe that these reasons continue to account for women’s misdiagnoses, unsatisfactory care, and cases of medical negligence in Ireland. To find out more about the gender health gap in Ireland, keep reading…

Women’s Biology

To firstly understand some of the reasons why there is a gender health gap, it is important to take look at the medical research on women’s bodies. 

Dr Alyson McGregor from Brown University found that men and women’s bodies differ from a cellular level upwards. These differences influence every bodily function in men and women, meaning diseases and illnesses will likely affect the two sexes differently. Despite this information, a blanket approach is still being applied when treating men and women.

A major example of this is the “heart attack gender gap” whereby women are 50% more likely than a man to receive an initial wrong diagnosis for a heart attack. More shockingly, even after a correct diagnosis, they’re significantly less likely to receive life-saving treatments.

One reason behind this could be that women’s symptoms don’t always fit previous male-centric models. For example, in men, plaque tends to build up, causing blood vessels to rupture. However, in women, plaque is more likely to gradually erode, making blood vessels stiffer and less flexible over time.

Historically, medical research has excluded women of childbearing age from taking part in trials. The reason behind this was to supposedly protect them, however, others argue that this exclusion meant healthcare professionals and the pharmaceutical industry could work faster and cheaper. This was due to the fact they didn’t have to factor in variables such as menstrual cycles and hormone surges. 

Some could argue that, as a result of this sidestepping, there is a lack of targeted treatment and knowledge on women’s health.

Medical Gaslighting

A recent study into women’s healthcare in Ireland has found that a number of women feel they are not being listened to or taken seriously enough when they speak to healthcare professionals about sexual and reproductive issues. Fianna Fáil Senator, Lisa Chambers, who conducted the study, said the over-arching response from 3,000 women surveyed about their experiences is that women’s health concerns are consistently blamed on emotion, age, hormones, and even their imaginations. 

Ms Chambers has said that “in some cases, women were prescribed medication for mental health issues and told their physical symptoms were psychological and the result of anxiety or depression”. She said the disturbing trend is “medical gaslighting at its worst” and is leading to “delayed and missed diagnosis and in some cases no treatment at all”.

On top of this, there has been a reported rise in the number of medical negligence claims against gynaecologists in Ireland. Leo Varadkar, the former Minister for Health, said that 117 claims in 2010 rose to 130 in 2014.

Misdiagnosis

The statistics from the study mentioned above fall into line with findings of a gender bias in medical diagnosis. This bias has been found in a number of UK and international studies.

One of the most prominent and recent studies was conducted by the digital healthcare app, Livi, which surveyed 2,000 women across England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland. They found that 57% of those women feel they have been medically misdiagnosed due to their sex. On top of this, 29% of these women still don’t think they’ve received the correct diagnosis. 

The research also showed that many women are enduring long waiting times to receive the correct diagnosis, with 23% of women reporting waiting anywhere between a year and 11 years for one.

Is there a Medical Bias in Women’s Health?

What is clear from this article is that the medical industry still has a long way to go in recognising the need for different healthcare practices and targeted treatments amongst men and women. 

Recent studies conducted in both Ireland, and on a global level, have found that women are being misdiagnosed more than their male counterpart. On top of this, a number of women also feel they’re not being taken seriously enough by healthcare professionals.

If you or a loved one has ever felt that a healthcare professional has failed in their duty of care to you, or made mistakes, then it is important to speak to a lawyer as you may be eligible to make a claim.

The Essentials of a Smooth Intercity Move

house move

Back in the old days, people, the majority of people anyway, would live their entire lives in the place they were born. But things have changed. We’re a population of movers, with more people than ever before packing up their lives and heading to pastures new. And you can understand why. There’s plenty of fun and adventure to be had from experiencing life in a new city, even if it’s still in the same country as your home city.

But of course, it can be a little difficult. It’s more problematic than just moving down the street, for instance. In this blog, we’ll run through some useful tips that’ll ensure your intercity move is as smooth as possible. 

Knowledge of the City

There’s something exciting about just moving to a new place without having any knowledge of what it’s like. But also, there’s no avoiding the fact that the chances of failure are higher. You’ll find that you greatly enhance your chances of success if you have a fair amount of knowledge about the place you’re moving to! It’s recommended to visit a few times before making a move, and also talk with other people who have moved there to get their thoughts and impressions. 

A Month Trial 

Even if you’re broadly sure that moving is the right way to go, it can still be useful to spend a month there, just to be sure. Of course, this option won’t be available to everyone, but if you have a remote job, then it could work. You could even house swap with someone, so you don’t have to pay additional rent, plus it would be more likely that you’ll get the true “what it’s like to live there” experience. After a month, you’ll have a more solid understanding of the pros and cons of moving there. 

Professional Movers

It can be difficult transporting all your belongings to a new house down the road. It’s even more difficult to move your stuff across the country. While you could do this yourself, it’ll be more likely that you run into stressful moments — and that you and your partner will have arguments. Instead, look at handing the responsibility over to a professional moving company, such as JD Movers. They’ll do all the hard work of getting your possessions from point A to point B. 

Work Transition Period

You’ll need to handle a lot of tasks when you first move. Even filling your fridge with food can be a challenge since you won’t know for sure which supermarket is right for you. To help make things a little more straightforward, look at taking a bit of extra time off work after you’ve made the move. It’ll give you time to get your bearings without having to put in all those long hours of work each day. 

Once you’ve done all those things, the only thing you’ll have to do is be a little patient. You’ll eventually settle into your new life, but it could take a few months!

Smartphone Etiquette: Teach Your Kids These Basic Lessons

Pic Credit: Pixabay

As technology advances, children are also exposed, and the new developments require adapting. Since the introduction of smartphones, communication has become easy. It is now easier to reach your loved ones and stay connected no matter the distance. Today, children have access to smartphones, and some parents are wary about it. Even though children can now access the internet at an early age, it does not have to be all negative. You can decide to buy your kid a smartphone but ensure their safety too. It would help if you also taught them about phone etiquette to ensure these devices do not affect their behavior. This article will discuss basic lessons you should teach your kids on etiquette if they own a smartphone.

Phone Breaks

Time management is one crucial etiquette you should teach your child. How long do your kids stay on the phone? Do they have enough time for other activities? It is essential to ensure your kid does not spend most of their day on their phone. Allow them to use their phones for a short time or during their free time. This way, they can do other important things like studying. Your child needs a healthy time away from the phone to reconnect in the real world. Too much screen time can cause sleep, headaches, eye problems, and weight gain. It also affects their socialization and other aspects of their life. Therefore, ensure they take breaks for other things.

Attentiveness

It is easy for the child not to listen to you if something on the phone captures their attention. Looking at the phone when someone is talking can be a problem. Therefore, teach your kid to be attentive. That means they should keep their phone away when someone requires their attention. This is an essential lesson that impacts your kid’s behavior.

Parental Control

It is vital to ensure the phone has parental control features that help you monitor what your child is doing on the phone. You can even restrict access to specific sites. Before you activate the parental control on your kid’s iPhone, go through downloads or history to see what they have been doing. You can click here https://setapp.com/how-to/find-downloads-on-iphone-ipad to access downloads on their iPad or iPhone. Restrict the phone so that they only use it safely and healthily.

Internet Safety

This is one big lesson you must never forget to teach your child. With various social media platforms, some kids may get bullied, which can affect their lives. So, prepare your kid to be safe while using the internet. For example, teach them not to use their real details on social media. Teach them about the kind of pictures or videos they should not most. Another thing you should teach your child is to use security features like passwords to secure their accounts and devices.

Polite Texting and Calling

Teach your kid how to maintain politeness when texting or calling, no matter the situation. So, before you buy a smartphone, ensure they can behave while using it. For instance, advise them when not to use emojis in a conversation. Teach them to say thank you, sorry, and please when texting or on a call.

To Conclude

It is crucial to teach your kids about smartphone etiquette. It may take time, but the results will be worth it. Most importantly, teach your children how to be safe on the internet.

You can improve the look and feel of your home in many different ways. One way to do this is by installing new windows or doors. Windows and doors play a vital role in the overall appearance of your home, and they also significantly impact how well your home performs energetically. This blog post will discuss the benefits of installing new windows and doors in your home and some of the most popular options available on the market today.

The benefits of installing new windows and doors;

There are many benefits to installing new windows and doors in your home. One of the most important benefits is that it can help improve your home’s energy efficiency. In fact, replacing old, draughty windows and doors with new, energy-efficient models can save you money on your energy bills each month. Additionally, new windows and doors can help improve your home’s security by deterring burglars and keeping out unwanted pests. Finally, installing new windows and doors can also add value to your home if you ever decide to sell it, and making these simple changes can be precisely what you need to make your home the perfect place for your loved ones and their lifestyle.

Some of the most popular types of windows and doors available on the market today include:

  • Vinyl windows – They are a popular choice for many homeowners because they are durable, energy-efficient, and easy to maintain.
  • Fibreglass windows – Fibreglass windows are also very durable and energy-efficient, but they tend to be more expensive than vinyl windows, especially from World of Windows.
  • Wood windows – Wood windows can add a classic look to your home but require more maintenance than vinyl or fibreglass windows.
  • Aluminium doors are a popular choice for many homeowners because they are durable and low-maintenance. However, aluminium doors can conduct heat and cold, so they may not be the best option if you live in an area with extreme weather conditions.

One of the best ways to improve your home is by making it more energy efficient & accessible;

This can be done in some ways, such as installing solar panels or upgrading your insulation. Energy efficiency not only makes your home more comfortable, but it can also save you money on your utility bills.

Another way to improve your home is by making it more accessible. For example, if you have stairs leading up to your front door, consider installing a ramp or handrails to make it easier for people with limited mobility to enter and exit your home. You can also install grab bars in the bathroom and other areas of the house where they might be needed. By making your home more accessible, you’re not only improving its function, but you’re also making it safer for everyone who lives there.

In conclusion, there are endless possibilities when it comes to improving your home, so don’t be afraid to get creative. Just remember to keep your family’s needs in mind and make sure that any improvements you make are safe and up to code. Then, with a little bit of planning, you can create the home of your dreams.

Top Car Shopping Tips You Need

car keys

They can often be nothing more confusing than trying to shop for a new car. It’s not like you don’t understand brands, and it’s not that you don’t know what you’re looking for, it’s just that when it comes to car sales, it’s easy to be bamboozled by all of the talk, the jargon and the shiny, shiny cars! Cars are essential tools that allow us to conduct our very busy and increasingly spread our lives, and without one you can’t get back and forth to work or to the local public transport stops, you can’t move your family place to place and it can be hard to complete your chores.

Before you choose your new car however, you need to prioritize what you need and consider the kind of vehicle that you need. Whether you are heading to buy a new Jaguar, or you want to go to the Hyundai car dealers and get some advice, you need to think about what you need to know before you sign on the dotted line. Let’s take a look at some top car shopping tips you need.

  • Think about what you want and need. When it comes to new car shopping, you should consider what you need and what you want. Do you need a car that has cruise control? Do you need one with space for good car seats? You need to consider the things that you want to need for your car because there is no point in getting a car that doesn’t suit your lifestyle or your family. Knowing what you want before you start looking will save you a lot of time and it can save you from making a very big mistake.
  • Consider your budget. Your call is an essential tool for your life, but it’s also a very expensive one. We are not just talking about the initial cost of a car, but the ongoing costs. You have to consider your fuel, your insurance, your tax, and all of the other costs involved in running a car. You also need to make sure that you decide whether you are buying cash or you are getting car finance.
  • Are you buying new or used. Finding a new car can come with its own pitfalls, and buying a used car isn’t always the easiest thing to do either. Used car purchases can make a lot of sense because they are less expensive, but if you’re looking for something with more modern safety features then you might think about getting a new vehicle. It’s definitely something that you have to consider before you go ahead and start cruising around the dealership.
  • What about lease options? Are you planning to lease a car? If you are, you need to negotiate on the price. You need to make sure that the payment is worth it for you, and the time so that you know you’re not going to pay thousands on a car that you have to give back later. Consider what you need the most and go with that.

5 Things You Should Know When Comparing Home Insurance Policies

laptop

Pic Credit: Unsplash

Home Insurance is a very important part of your property. It protects your home against damages or losses caused by perils. However, there are so many different policies, and the cost of homeowner’s insurance varies from state to state, making your choices even more confusing if you aren’t sure what to look for in your insurance policy. Luckily, there are a few things you need to know that can make sure searching for the best home insurance policies a little easier: 

Understanding your insurance coverage

It is important for you to have an understanding of your insurance coverage when comparing home insurance policies because it ensures that you are getting the best deal possible. This will help you avoid making a decision based on emotion, which can lead to costly mistakes. It also enables you to avoid paying too much for what you don’t need or getting less than you should receive in terms of coverage and benefits.

It’s important to understand your coverage. You should know what types of issues are covered by your policy and which ones aren’t. You’ll know what each one covers, how much it costs monthly, etc. You also need to know about exclusions or limitations that may apply to your policy, so there aren’t any surprises later on the road.

Know your insurance premium

Knowing your insurance premium is important for comparing home insurance policies because the amount you pay monthly can vary greatly between insurers. In fact, some premiums may be more than double what another company charges for the same coverage.

You should also know your deductible when comparing home insurance policies. This is the amount you must pay out-of-pocket before your insurance covers any damages or losses to your home or other property. The higher your deductible, the lower your monthly premium will be, but it also means that you’ll have to pay more money if something happens to your home or belongings.

What are the deductibles?

It’s important to know the deductibles because they are a major factor in determining how much you’ll pay out of pocket for a claim. When comparing home insurance policies, one of the first things to consider is the deductible and how much it costs. The higher the deductible, the more you will have to pay out of pocket for each claim.

The other thing to consider when comparing home insurance policies is how long it takes for your coverage to start after purchasing a policy. Some insurers require that you wait 30 days before receiving coverage if you buy a policy directly from them. Others offer instant coverage when you purchase through an agent or broker.

Read policy documents carefully.

The policy document is the most important document you’ll sign when purchasing home insurance. It contains all the important details of your plan and is usually much more comprehensive than the brochure or website you may have read before buying your policy. Therefore, it is important to read and understand all the terms and conditions contained in a policy before signing up for it.

If there are any questions, contact an expert who can answer them. If there are still doubts after that conversation, seek clarity from someone at an insurance company or broker’s office where you bought your plan.

Check out your home insurance rating.

It’s important to check out your home insurance rating when comparing home insurance policies because it’s one of the ways to know whether you’re getting a good deal. The rating is based on how likely your house is to be damaged by a disaster, and it should be one of your top concerns when deciding whether or not to take out a policy.

You want a high rating because you’ll pay less for your premiums. You also want it because it means the company has done its research and knows what they’re doing—so if something does happen, it’ll know exactly how much money to pay out.

Things to check for when buying a home

Are you thinking about buying your property? Congratulations, buying a home is a challenge and something you should be very proud of. It can take many years to save up a deposit to buy a property, even longer if it’s your second or third as greater deposits are needed.

When viewing a property, there are a number of things you want to consider before committing to buying. What home appliances does it come with? – Are you going to need to buy any when moving in? What is the condition of the gutter? –  Is it working properly or will you need to get a company like Gutter Boy Cleaning in? What is the age of the house and more? 

There are so many questions to answer, which is why it’s always worth getting a survey done so that a professional can inspect the property and check for anything that you may miss. As an expert, there are probably many things they will check that you wouldn’t. 

Below are a few things for you to consider checking when buying a home. 

What home appliances does it come with? 

An important question to ask is what home appliance your potential home comes with. Will it come with a washing machine? A dishwasher and tumble dryer? Does the oven work as well as the microwave etc? It’s important to find these things out as they could save you money in the long run. If it’s a new build you are looking at, then chances are it will include the most important appliances and they will be relatively new. If it’s an older property, then you may be required to provide these yourself – and they can be costly and should be included within your budget – If you are having to buy a lot of appliances, make sure they fit with the interiors of your new home. 

How Old Is The Property? 

The age of the property is another important thing to check when buying a home. It’s fairly simple to understand why, the older the property, the more likely it is that you will have to do some work on it when you buy it or in the long run. If the property is new, then it may be covered by the people who built it for a number of years. A lot of new builds will be insured for around 5-10 years, however, you would need to check this. Older properties are also more likely to be more expensive to fix if there is something that, unfortunately, goes wrong with it. This is because the way we built properties in the past has changed, meaning more work will have to be done to bring it to modern-day standards. 

Check the Location 

Are you new to the area or have you been living in the same location but in a different home? The location of your property is very important to check before committing to buying – especially if you are new to the area. Have you checked what schools are around? What activities can you do that are easy to get to? What is the local town like? What is the crime rate like? Is it safe to walk around the neighborhood when it gets dark? These are all things you want to research in order to be sure you are happy with the location of your potential home.

How to Improve Your Dog’s Daily Diet?- A Handy Guide

Your dog has a healthy appetite, so it’s not difficult to make it eat more or provide it with different supplements. Many of us might not know what and how much we should feed them. 

What’s the best diet for your dog? Establishing a healthy diet plan for your furry friend is crucial for their well-being. It allows your pet to lead a longer life and a healthier one free of health complications. On the contrary, feeding your dog anything that is not good for its health could be dangerous. Therefore, a dog’s diet is something not to play around with at random. Your neighbors, co-workers, and relatives probably have a lot of advice. While some of them are worth it, others are highly questionable. 

So, with all the information & misinformation circulating, in this article, we’ll answer all your questions about the best dog food for a healthy life and why more is not always better!

Feed a Variety of Ingredients Rich in Antioxidants and Anti-inflammatory Properties:

Supplementing your pet’s diet with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties will help maintain an optimal immune system. 

Antioxidants can help to reduce free radical damage and inflammation, which may be caused by exposure to environmental factors such as excessive heat, cold, or sunlight. 

Omega-3 fatty acids are also antioxidants that may help to protect against disease.

Introduce Fresh Whole Foods

Plain yogurt is a great way to get your dog’s probiotics to maintain good health. Yogurt contains live bacteria cultures that aid in digestion and increase nutrient absorption. 

It is also rich in protein and calcium, promoting strong bones and teeth. Try feeding plain yogurt instead of kibble for a tasty snack that supports healthy digestion.

Chewable for Healthy Teeth

One of the best chewable treats for dogs is bully sticks. What is a bully stick? Bully sticks are flexible, flat sticks that come in various sizes and thicknesses. They can be made from different types of materials, but the main components tend to be beef or pork and some flavoring.

The bully stick chews are very popular because they are easy to digest and can be given to dogs of all ages. They provide the right amount of chew for your pet’s teeth and gums.

They can also help clean teeth, reduce tartar buildup, strengthen bones and promote healthy digestion.

Avoid Gluten

Gluten is a protein in grains such as wheat, rye, and barley. It’s also found in foods like soybean flour and cornmeal. If your pet has a gluten-free diet, it’s essential to be aware of the potential dangers of this ingredient.

Gluten can cause digestive issues for dogs. Dogs with celiac disease are more susceptible to wheat allergies, which can cause vomiting or diarrhea. Other side effects include skin rashes and hair loss.

Gluten is especially dangerous for dogs with gastrointestinal problems because it can exacerbate their symptoms.

Add MCT Oil as a Source of Fat

MCT oil is a fatty acid derived from coconut or palm kernel oils. It is beneficial for humans and can also benefit pets as a supplement. 

MCT oil helps dogs absorb fat-soluble vitamins, such as A and D, which they normally cannot get from their food alone. The presence of these vitamins in the bloodstream allows them to function properly.

Do Not Overfeed

While feeding your dog or cat too much food at once can cause digestive issues, over-feeding can cause obesity as well.

This can lead to other health problems for dogs and cats, such as diabetes and heart disease. If you want to avoid this problem, try cutting back on the food you give them daily instead of increasing it gradually over time.*

The Bottom Line

In conclusion, the best way to ensure your pet receives a proper diet is to speak to a veterinarian. After all, your pet’s dietary needs must be taken into account when considering their health, ensuring that they can achieve optimal longevity and good quality of life.
