Article Body:
Caribbean Stud Poker is gradually gaining in popularity as compared to its stud twin: Texas Holdem mainly because it is an easier game to learn and you can play it face to face and still enjoy.

Originating in the Caribbean and based loosely on five card stud poker rules, this game offers a fan alternative to traditional table games with an opportunity to place a side bet and hit a big jackpot too. Some of these jackpots are progressive and you can win millions of dollars if you break those machines or tables..

What is Caribbean Stud?
It is not a traditional poker game in the sense that you play against the other players and the best player wins the pot. Caribbean stud belongs to the family of games including Pai Gow poker, Let it Ride and Three Card poker for example, where your opponent is the dealer and your goal is to form a better poker hand than the dealers hand. However, basic knowledge of traditional poker hand ranking is required.

The Rules of Playing Caribbean Stud:
1) The game begins with the players placing an ante bet at the same amount as the table minimum on the ante circle on the table.
2) At the same time, you should decide whether to place an additional side bet for the progressive jackpot.
3) Then, the dealer deals each player five face down cards plus four face down cards and one up to himself.
4) After looking at your cards, you should decide whether to fold or to call. If you decide to call, you should place an additional bet double the amount of your former ante bet.
5) After all the players have made their decisions, the dealer shows his hand. In order to qualify in a Caribbean stud poker game, the dealer must have an ace and a king or better. If he does not qualify, you will be paid back your ante bet but the call bet is a push.
6) If the dealers hand qualifies, he compares hands against each of the players individually. If his hand is better than yours is, you lose both your ante and your call bets.
7) If your hand is better than the dealers hand, you would be paid even money for your ante while for your call you would be paid according to a paytable. The paytable can vary from one casino to another. Generally, US casinos pay out 50:1 on a straight flush; 20:1 on four of a kind; 7:1 on full house; 5:1 on a flush; 4:1 on a straight; 3:1 on three of a kind; 2:1 on two pairs and even money on one pair or less.
In case your hand and the dealers hand are even, both ante and raise will push.

One of the reasons that Caribbean stud poker is so popular is the option of placing a one dollar side bet and winning a large progressive jackpot prize. In order to qualify for the bonus payout you should have a flush or better. For a flush, you would be paid a 50 dollars bonus and in order to win the jackpot that usually resets from 10,000 dollars, you must have a royal flush. However, your chances to hit a royal flush are estimated as about 650,000 to 1, therefore I would recommend skipping it.

Carpal tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is one of many musculoskeletal injuries listed under the broader terms of Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) or Cumulative Trauma Disorder (CTD). A number of other injuries listed under these terms, but that are not exclusively caused by a repetitive strain injury or cumulative trauma disorder include Guyon's Syndrome, Tendonitis, Cubital Tunnel Syndrome, Medial and Lateral Epicondylitis and Trigger Finger.

Carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive strain injuries are caused by excessive overuse of a muscle or group of muscles in a unidirectional movement pattern. Examples would include typing, wringing a washcloth and using a computer mouse. All of the movement patterns involve motion against resistance in one direction – flexion. This one-way motion does not actually have to involve “repetitive” movements as the term “repetitive strain injury” implies, as it is just as common for an individual to become afflicted with a repetitive strain injury while performing activities that involve no movement of the hands at all. Examples of this would include holding onto a steering wheel, gripping a pen or a tool such as a hammer all day. With these types of activities, no repetitive type motion is involved at all, but instead, “static flexion” is utilized, which involves the overuse of these muscles, but in a manner that is stationary.

Since Repetitive strain injuries are most often caused by unidirectional patterns, the best way to counteract each specific overused motion is the implementation of an exercise program that involves the implementation of resistance exercises to the opposing muscle or group of muscles that is being overused. An example training program for carpal tunnel syndrome would include resistance exercises for the muscles that open (extension) the hands in order to counteract the overuse of the muscles that close the hands (flexion). This principal of “balancing” muscles groups so that there is a more natural equality of strength between muscles that surround a specific joint, whether it is the wrist, elbow, shoulder or neck, is basic common sense and integrated into training programs by the top practitioners and therapists in the industry today. Here are a few examples of practitioner responses regarding the implementation of restoring balance between muscle groups in order to prevent and rehabilitate repetitive strain injuries including Carpal tunnel syndrome.

"Muscle balance must be restored with specific exercises. Otherwise, the already strong and overused muscles get stronger, and the weak and underused muscles remain weak. Individuals get good at using the overused muscles and must be trained specifically to recruit and strengthen the weak underused muscles." Philip E. Higgs, M.D. and Susan E. Mackinnon, M.D. Department of Surgery, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, Missouri. Annu. Rev. Med. 1995. 46:1-16

"If certain muscle groups are underused, opposing muscle groups will be overused. Muscles in either a lengthened or shortened position will be at a mechanical disadvantage and weak. The overused group will hypertrophy, and the underused group will continue to be weak. This combination produces a self perpetuating condition that maintains the abnormal posture and muscle imbalance." Philip E. Higgs, M.D. and Susan E. Mackinnon, M.D. Department of Surgery, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, Missouri. Annu. Rev. Med. 1995. 46:1-16

A strong example of how important it is to properly balance muscle groups is seen in the following statement regarding the balancing of the in the hands and forearms.

"All of the extrinsic hand muscles become involved in a power grip, in proportion to the strength of the grip."........ "Strong agonist-antagonist interactions are needed between the flexors and extensors of the hand and fingers to produce forceful hand-grip. Powerful flexion of the distal phalanges requires strong activity also of the finger extensors." Janet G. Travell, M.D. and David G. Simons, M.D. Myofascial Pain and Dysfunction-The Trigger Point Manual. Volume1 Upper Extremities, Ch:35, pg. 501. Copyright 1983.

Performing corrective exercises in order to prevent and rehabilitate carpal tunnel syndrome and repetitive strain injuries is of the utmost importance. In 95% of most cases, there is no need for invasive techniques like cortisone injections or surgery in order to eliminate carpal tunnel or other repetitive strain injuries. It is one thing if you have an actual structural anomaly that needs to be corrected, but since most cases of carpal tunnel and repetitive strain injury occur in later years, it is quite obvious that a physical anomaly does not exist as this would be experienced by the individual in their younger years. Instead a structural or joint imbalance exists that has developed due to long-term overuse, or sudden trauma due to overuse, and is a result of overly strong muscles pulling one direction while the opposing weak muscles try unsuccessfully to counteract and pull the other direction.

Muscle imbalances can be corrected with simple exercises. By performing a sensible, active stretch / exercise program that focuses on keeping muscles balanced, individuals can stay healthy and symptom-free!

NOTE: Be sure to be aware of any pain that is experienced 'while' performing stretches or exercises. If pain is experienced while performing any particular motion, stop immediately. Post exercise soreness is normal. Always be sure to consult a physician before beginning any stretch / exercise program.

Carpal tunnel syndrome reached epidemic proportions in the 90’s and has now achieved a status equaling pandemic proportions in the 21st century. With carpal tunnel syndrome having such devastating effects on millions of people each year, how do you know if you or someone you know has it?

With so much attention and hype the past 10-years concerning carpal tunnel syndrome in the workplace, you would think that a clear-cut picture would exist regarding the “how’s” “why’s” and “what is it’s” of carpal tunnel. Although carpal tunnel syndrome should be easily recognizable with such extensive media exposure, you would be amazed at how many people, including a lot of doctors, who do not recognize the symptoms or misdiagnose it as something other than carpal tunnel syndrome.

In order to provide a more clear picture of what carpal tunnel is, why and how it develops and what can be done to eliminate it, I have provided information below to explain the process so that you can better identify and therefore prevent carpal tunnel syndrome from taking over your life.

What is the Carpal Tunnel?

The carpal tunnel is a passageway in which the nine flexor tendons, median nerve, arteries, blood and lymphatic vessels pass through in order to supply function and movement to the fingers and wrist.

The carpal bones line the carpal tunnel on the posterior surface (backside) of the wrist with the transverse carpal ligament positioned on the anterior (front side) of the wrist. The size of the carpal tunnel is about the size of the index finger in diameter, and the flexor tendons, arteries and nerves glide past one another with ease in a carpal tunnel that has not decreased in size.

How Does Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Develop?

Because the finger and wrist muscles are constantly overused in one-way movement patterns, (Gripping, squeezing, typing, etc.) a "muscle imbalance" develops, causing the carpal bones to shift, in turn, making the carpal tunnel smaller and impinging the structures within, resulting in painful and debilitating symptoms.

What are the Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

· Tingling

· Numbness

· Paresthesia (Pins & needles)

· Loss of grip-strength / coordination

Sensations involving tightness, discomfort, stiffness and pain on the front side of the hand and wrist may be present in carpal tunnel, but may also be symptoms of a general repetitive strain injury.

The only true telltale signs of carpal tunnel syndrome that you need to be aware of affect the thumb, index, middle and sometimes one-half of the ring finger. (All of the fingers and symptoms listed do not have to be experienced simultaneously for you to have carpal tunnel syndrome.)

If you have symptoms in your entire ring and/or little finger and your doctor tells you that you have carpal tunnel syndrome, you don’t! The ULNAR nerve supplies function to the ring and little finger and has nothing to so with carpal tunnel syndrome. (If the ring and/or little fingers are affected, it may either be Cubital Tunnel Syndrome or Guyon’s Syndrome)

How Are the Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Eliminated?

Carpal tunnel syndrome can quickly and easily be eliminated by performing a good stretch and exercise program that addresses the existing muscle imbalance that is the cause of carpal tunnel in most cases.

Staying Symptom-Free:

Knowing why carpal tunnel syndrome develops and what to look for is the key to keeping your hands healthy. With the information provided above you should now be able to recognize the disabling symptoms and take the steps necessary in order to stop it before it stops you!

Article Body:
Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a devastating injury that affects more than 8 million people in the United States and continues to increase each and every year.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is one of many repetitive strain injuries (RSI’s) that are everywhere; homes, offices, assembly lines, grocery stores, book clubs, construction sites, dental offices, everywhere! Because carpal tunnel syndrome is so commonplace, and its effects so devastating, it is important to be knowledgeable of how it occurs, what its symptoms are, the testing methods used and what treatment options are available, as the prevention of any injury, especially carpal tunnel, begins with education.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a disorder affecting the median nerve, which supplies function to the thumb, index, middle and one half of the ring finger. Usually the symptoms are most prevalent in the thumb, index and middle fingers (Sometimes one-half of the ring finger) and include numbness, tingling, paresthesia (pins and needles), pain and tightness in the front of the hand, wrist and forearm. These symptoms do not have to occur simultaneously, and may only affect one finger one day and then three fingers a few days later.

If a doctor provides a carpal tunnel diagnoses and the symptoms are in the ring and little fingers, it is NOT carpal tunnel syndrome! The ulnar nerve, not the median nerve, supplies function to the ring and little finger. Repetitive strain disorders affecting these two fingers are usually either Guyon’s syndrome, entrapment of the ulnar nerve in the guyon’s canal at the wrist junction, or cubital tunnel syndrome, entrapment of the ulnar nerve at the elbow junction. This is a common mistake made by many, many physicians and is completely inexcusable as they often recommend surgery for the patient, causing the patient to undergo an unnecessary procedure, and what makes it worse, for the wrong disorder!

If symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome do arise, doctors will recommend that a nerve conduction velocity (NCV) test or an Electromoyogram (EMG) be performed to see if carpal tunnel syndrome truly exists. These tests are often painful to the individual being tested, very expensive, and often give false positives and false negatives. This is why it is recommended that manual carpal tunnel tests be performed in order to obtain a more accurate (and much cheaper) diagnosis. Manual carpal tunnel tests take no longer than 10 minutes, have a high accuracy rate, are painless and are very cheap in comparison to the NCV and EMG tests.

The recommended manual carpal tunnel tests consist of the following:

· Phalen’s Test: The wrist is flexed for 30 to 60 seconds in order to compress the median nerve and duplicate/increase the symptoms.

· Reverse Phalen’s Test: The wrist is extended for 30 to 60 seconds in order to stretch the median nerve and duplicate/increase the symptoms. Stretching the median nerve if it is already impinged will duplicate/increase the symptoms if a patient has carpal tunnel syndrome.

· Tinnel Sign: Tapping directly over the median nerve at the wrist junction will cause carpal tunnel symptoms to exhibit themselves.

· Compression Test: Direct pressure is applied over the location of the median nerve for 30-60 seconds to see if carpal tunnel symptoms are exhibited.

If a positive diagnosis comes back, most doctors will push for surgery, a procedure that has a terrible success rate and is to only be performed as a last resort once all other conservative treatment methods have been utilized. Conservative therapy is the key to successfully recovering from carpal tunnel syndrome and obtaining not only short-term but long-term relief as well. The following is a list of conservative treatments that should be utilized in order to help prevent carpal tunnel syndrome from developing, but also rehabilitating carpal tunnel syndrome after it is already present.

· Ergonomics: Utilize proper ergonomic tools and equipment when working.

· Breaks: Take short breaks every 30 minutes when working in order to help reduce excessive strain on the hands.

· Stretches: Stretch the muscles that ‘close’ the hands as these are the muscles that are exercised all day long in activities such as typing, writing, gripping a steering wheel, using a computer mouse, carrying groceries and everything else that is done day in and day out. When a muscle is involved in exercise, it becomes shorter, therefore it needs to be stretched and lengthened both during and after the exercises are completed. (End of day)

· Exercises: Exercise and strengthen the muscles that are used to ‘open’ the hands, as these muscles do not receive much direct stimuli / exercise. (i.e. People do not turn doorknobs, hold things, type, use a computer mouse or lift things with the backs of their hands.)

The information provided above reveals how carpal tunnel syndrome occurs, what its symptoms are, the testing methods most commonly used and the best conservative treatment options that are used to thwart its existence.

It is very important for individuals to become well acquainted with the proper information and tools in order to maintain and increase their level of health and productivity. It is also important for people to speak to their doctors regarding their health concerns, and if someone is involved in an occupation that is considered high-risk for carpal tunnel, they should discuss this with their physician, but is even more critical that people become self educated as no one can take care of you better than “YOU”!

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a nerve disorder of the wrist and hand.  It can cause pain, numbness and tingling.  It’s caused by doing repetitive hand motions, such as typing.
Medical transcriptionists are especially at risk of developing carpal tunnel syndrome due to the amount of typing they do.
Although, there is no way of avoiding typing if you’re a transcriptionist there are a few things you can do to alleviate or avoid carpal tunnel altogether.
1.  Set up a comfortable work area. Make sure you have plenty of room to use the mouse comfortably and position your keyboard to elbow level.
2.  Keep your wrists and hands parallel to the floor as you type.  Do not rest your wrists on the keyboard unless it has a specifically designed wrist rest on it (these let you rest your wrist while keeping them straight).
3.  Stretch your hands and arms before and after typing.  Make a tight fist with your hand, hold for a few seconds then slowly release.  This will help alleviate any tension in the hands and wrists.
4.  Take breaks while working.  Ideally, you should get up every hour to stretch and relax your body.  Shake your hands and open and close your wrist to help relieve tension.
5.  Sit up straight in your chair when working.  Overall good posture will give you good hand position.
6.  Wear a wrist band to help avoid the problem.  This will give your wrists and hands extra support.
If you follow these tips early you may avoid carpal tunnel syndrome altogether since there may be damage being done before you actually feel any symptoms. And If you already suffer from carpal tunnel, following these tips should help alleviate the problem.
Symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome include tingling/numbness in the hands, a burning sensation in the fingers, and/or sharp pains from the wrist shooting up the arm.
If you do have any symptoms of carpal tunnel, you should see your physician right away.

What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
There are 8 bones in our wrists called carpals. They form a tunnel like structure. That is how carpal tunnel got its name. Finger movements are controlled by flexor tendons, which are found within this tunnel. The median nerve reaches sensory cells in the hand, through this pathway of tunnel.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a painful and progressive condition that occurs in the wrist. It is caused by the compression of the median nerve in the wrist. The median nerve runs into the hand starting from the forearm. When it becomes squeezed or pressed at the wrist, its message carrying and receiving ability from the brain gets inhibited. It is not necessary that the whole median nerve be pressed to cause carpal tunnel syndrome. The syndrome is caused when a point on the nerve is pressed. As a result of this compression the nerve does not function properly and causes carpal tunnel syndrome.
1 out of every 100 people is affected by carpal tunnel syndrome at some point in their life. It is commonly caused in the women of the age group of 30-50 years. Carpal tunnel syndrome is also known as Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI). Carpal tunnel syndrome is inclusive of the (RSI) related soft tissue injuries.
What Causes Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Though there are various possibilities behind the cause of carpal tunnel syndrome, the basic cause is the compression of tunnel walls. As the tunnel walls compress, they put pressure on the median nerve. As the median nerve gets stressed, it causes carpal tunnel syndrome.
Congenital predisposition is also a cause of carpal tunnel disorder. In a majority of cases the carpal tunnel is smaller than the normal, which causes the median nerve to stress.
The syndrome can develop quickly, if the wrist has been fractured or injured. Rheumatoid Arthritis is also a cause of carpal tunnel syndrome.
In some cases repetitive stress induced carpal tunnel strain causes this syndrome. If a person’s occupation involves, gripping, typing or digging, the hand gets strained and it directly strains the median nerve.
Repetitive wrist and hand action results in the injury and swelling of the subcutaneous tissues. These tissues include muscle, ligament, fascia, sheaths, tendon, blood vessels and peripheral and retinaculum nerve. Due to the small and restricted passage of the tunnel, these swollen tissues can compress together and create concentrated pressure.
Carpal tunnel syndrome can also be caused due to some trauma based incidents. These causes include fracture or injury of the wrist or one of the arm bones. Internal hemorrhaging in the wrist leads to formation of hematoma which causes the syndrome. If any one of the carpal bones of the wrist gets dislocated, it leads to carpal syndrome. Obesity is another common cause of carpal tunnel syndrome. Women who take contraceptive pills can also go on to develop this condition.
Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
The early symptoms include tingling, numbness and burning in the thumb and the index and middle fingers. People suffering from this syndrome, find it hard to grip things, or make a fist. The symptom grows to a severe pain in the hand and restricts the movement of the hand at all. A person gradually loses his ability to squeeze things. They may even find it very hard to tie their shoe laces and picking things up becomes a challenge.
In the worst cases of carpal tunnel syndrome, the patients are unable to differentiate between hot and cold things by touch.
Who is at Risk?
People who are involved in assembly line work are at the maximum risk of developing carpal tunnel syndrome. However it can also develop in the people who are constantly related to any of the following activities or professions:
Video games
Computer keyboard typing or typewriter typing
Musical instruments
Driving a vehicle
Surgeons and Dentists
People involved in exhaustive activity of hands like drilling, digging.
Treatment Available.
Avoiding repetitive and exhaustive activities related to hand movement, is the first instruction for someone suffering with carpal tunnel syndrome. The patient must abstain from such activities in order to give relief to their hand and free the median nerve of pressure.
Stretching exercises also helps in treating the syndrome as exercising helps in maintaining blood flow normal in the nerves.
Medicines like corticosteroid and prescription based NSAID’s can help in relieving the syndrome. If the condition gets worse, there is the option of surgery.
You should consult your doctor immediately if you feel you may be suffering with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

Summary:
This article is about carpal tunnel syndrome.With the recent boom in technology, people have been computer dependent.Almost all work that needs to be done is on the computer.This article discusses the main causes of carpal tunnel syndrome.It includes work, trauma, physical conditions and idiopathic or unknown reasons.  People are too swayed by the comfort of just staying in front of the computer for everything that they take for granted this will bring to their hands.

Article Body:
Now that we’re in the information technology age, everything we need is within reach. And this is all thanks to the Internet.  Work is mostly done through the Internet, facing the computer for long stretches of hours.  Even kids’ homework is done and submitted using a computer connected to the Internet.  Gone are the days when people would have to go and manually search for files in big folders stacked in shelves full of records.  Gone are the days when researching meant going to the library to research using gargantuan encyclopaedias.  People just aren’t as active as they used to be.  And it’s because of this inactivity, and the long hours of slaving away in front of computers, that a lot of people have been complaining of certain chronic pain on their wrists.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

      Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) has been present even before computers were created, contrary to popular belief that CTS was brought about by the increasing use of technology.

      The carpal tunnel is a hollow tunnel formed by the carpal bones and the surrounding tissues of the wrist.  This tunnel protects the median nerve that makes your thumb, index, middle and ring fingers its feelings. And it is said that carpal tunnel syndrome starts when the median nerve gets compressed, this causes pain, a tingling sensation, and/or weakness in the forearm and hand.

      Carpal tunnel syndrome is said to be caused by a lot of factors: work, health conditions, trauma, and idiopathic reasons.

          o Work. Although still unproven, a lot of CTS cases were provoked by repetitive grasping and manipulating activities.  This  is commonly related to extensive labor that requires the repetitive use of the hand and wrist in industrial occupations
          o Health conditions.  Physical health conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, and certain hormonal disorders like diabetes may cause CTS.
          o Trauma.  Accidents such as fractures of one of the arm bones, or dislocation of one of the carpal bones, blunt force trauma on the wrist or lower forearm., blood clot formation inside the wrist, or deformities due to abnormal healing of old fractures may cause compression of the median nerve.
          o Idiopathic reasons.  The compression is of an unknown source.

Treatment

      Of course, consulting a physician should always be the first step to take when dealing with any kind of pain in the body.  They need to find out if the CTS is caused by any underlying physical condition that needs to be addressed right away.

      Some people with mild symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome are able to relieve themselves of the pain by simply taking frequent breaks to rest their hands and arms.  Some people apply cold packs to reduce occasional swelling of the wrists.  If these quick fixes do not work, you might need to consider wrist splinting, medications and/or surgery.

          o Wrist splint.  This holds your wrist still while you sleep.  This relieves the night time symptoms of tingling and numbness.  This is most effective if you’ve only experienced mild symptoms of CTS for less than a year.
          o Medications.  Doctors usually prescribe either non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or corticosteroids.  One to relieve the swelling, the other to relieve the pain.
          o Surgery.  This is advised only when the nerve impairment persists after using non-surgical methods of treatment.

It is understandable that now that we’re in the computer age where everything is accessible through the internet, we don’t need to move much.  But even if technology offers us the convenience of just typing everything into the computer, we need to understand that it will affect our wrists sooner or later.  So stand up, stretch, and give your hands a rest.

Summary:
Carpal tunnel syndrome, a source of annoying symptoms in the wrist and hand, can be reliably diagnosed with the help of nerve conduction studies. Surgical and non-surgical treatments of proven effectiveness are available for this pinched-nerve condition.

Article Body:
Carpal tunnel syndrome is by far the most common and widely known of the "pinched nerve" conditions. This article addresses: What is it? Who is at risk for this condition? How is it diagnosed? What kinds of treatments work best?

Carpal tunnel syndrome refers to symptoms caused by entrapment of the median nerve in the carpal tunnel. "Carpal" itself means "wrist," so a carpal tunnel is nothing more than a wrist tunnel. This particular tunnel can be a crowded place, as it contains not just the median nerve, but nine tendons as well. The "syndrome" consists of some combination of pain, numbness and weakness.

Pain, numbness, or both, are the usual earliest symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome. Pain can affect the fingers, hand, wrist and forearm, but not usually the upper arm or shoulder. Numbness affects the palm side of the thumb and fingers, but usually spares the little finger because it's connected to a different nerve.

When weakness is present, it usually indicates that the condition is already severe, and when muscles atrophy (wither) it means the condition is even worse. The affected muscles are those downstream from where the nerve is pinched, and can include those controlling any of three motions of the thumb. In addition, bending of the first knuckles of the index and middle fingers can be affected, as can straightening of the second knuckles of the same fingers. When muscle atrophy is present, it is most evident in the muscular ball at the base of the thumb.

Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs more frequently in women than in men. People who work with their hands a lot - for example to sew, operate hand-tools or perform assembly-line work - are at increased risk for developing this condition. Various medical conditions can also increase the risk of carpal tunnel syndrome, including injuries, arthritis, diabetes, low levels of thyroid hormone and pregnancy. In the case of pregnancy, carpal tunnel syndrome often appears in the third trimester and resolves after the woman delivers.

Optimum diagnosis of this condition combines the time-honored methods of a doctor's history-taking and physical examination with tests of nerve function called nerve conduction studies. Nerve conduction studies are exquisitely sensitive in detecting impairment of the median nerve at the wrist, particularly when the median nerve is compared with a nearby healthy nerve in the same patient.

In nerve conduction studies, the nerve on one side of the carpal tunnel is activated by a small shock to the skin. An oscilloscope measures how long it takes for the resulting nerve-impulse to arrive on the other side of the carpal tunnel. When the median nerve is pinched, the nerve-impulse is delayed or blocked. Nerve conduction studies are so sensitive that sometimes they show problems that aren't even causing symptoms. That's why nerve conduction studies don't stand alone in diagnosing carpal tunnel syndrome. The examining physician needs to decide if the results make sense for the particular patient in question.

Nerve conduction studies not only show whether or not the median nerve is impaired at the wrist, but also provide precise data concerning how bad the impairment is. In addition, these studies survey the function of other nerves in the arm and hand. Occasionally, a nerve in an adjacent tunnel (the ulnar nerve in Guyon's canal) can also be pinched. In other cases, nerve conduction studies show that the problem is not one of single nerve-pinches, but rather a more diffuse pattern of nerve-impairment called polyneuropathy. Of course, sometimes the studies are completely normal and suggest that the symptoms are due to something else.

To treat carpal tunnel syndrome, starting with "conservative" treatment makes sense in most cases, especially when the symptoms are still in the mild-to-moderate range. Conservative treatment usually includes a wrist-splint that holds the wrist in a neutral position. In a study published in 2005 researchers at the University of Michigan investigated the effectiveness of wrist-splinting for carpal tunnel syndrome in workers at a Midwestern auto plant. In a randomized, controlled trial -  the gold standard method for judging treatments - about half the workers received customized wrist-splints that they wore at night for six weeks. The remaining workers received education about safe workplace procedures, but no splints. After treatment the workers with splints had less pain than those without, and the difference in outcome was still evident after one year.

Conservative treatment might additionally include use of anti-inflammatory medications like aspirin or naproxen, or even steroid drugs. A more intrusive, though still non-surgical, treatment consists of injecting steroid medication into the carpal tunnel itself. This might benefit selected patients, but in a 2005 randomized, controlled study of patients with mild-to-moderate symptoms, researchers at Mersin University in Turkey showed that patients receiving splints did better than those who received steroid injections.

Surgeons can relieve pressure on a pinched median nerve by cutting a constricting, overlying band of tissue. A 2002 study at Vrije University in Amsterdam compared surgical treatment to six weeks of wrist-splinting. After 18 months 90% of the operated patients had a successful outcome compared with 75% in the splinted group.

In some cases it can be reasonable to try conservative treatments without first confirming the diagnosis with nerve conduction studies. However, in the author's opinion, this risk-free form of testing should be performed prior to any carpal tunnel surgery. (Full disclosure: The author performs nerve conduction studies!)

Carpel Tunnel Syndrome is a very common problem affecting your hands and wrists. Many believe that computers are a major cause for such kind of a problem. But Before this problem was already in existence due to the kind of work we used to do. Computers do add to the risk of the syndrome but, is not termed as a main culprit. There are other reasons for suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome such like knitting, wood carving, minute work or detailed work, excessive use of vibrating machines and driving for a long time.

Carpal tunnel lies in the wrist and the very important nerve called the median nerve is also present there. This nerve helps in controlling some of the muscles which help in movement of the thumb. Problem occurs when too much pressure is applied on the median nerve. This pressure leads to the swelling of the tendons which squeezes the carpal tunnel leading to carpal tunnel syndrome.

Anyone can be affected by this syndrome. Age is not a barrier. It is being noted that women are affected more by this syndrome, in comparison to men. The worst affected areas are the thumb, middle finger and index finger. You can experience continuous pain, tingling sensation or numbness. The pain can be very severe as it might wake you up in the middle of the night. Do not ignore the symptoms as it may be one of the most serious things which could always cause problems to your hands, arms, shoulders and wrists.
Reasons for Carpel Tunnel Syndrome

-Rheumatoid Arthritis
-Pregnancy
-Osteoarthritis
-Diabetes
-Amyloidosis
-Hypothyroidism
-Tumors and similar conditions
-Fluid retention
-Swelling or inflammation of the tendons

Some of the things which you can do to avoid carpal tunnel syndrome

-Regular exercise for your wrists and hand
-Avoiding too much stress on your hands and wrists
-Follow a proper posture while sitting on your computer
-Usage of acupuncture or osteopathy
-Get your arms, wrists massaged
-Avoid pressures on your wrists. Use your elbows and shoulders instead
-Take short breaks during work
-Warm up before you start your work
-Avoid sleeping on your hands
-If you are a regular user of the computer you can set your keyboard in a flat position rather than a slanting position
-Do not rest your wrists on the keyboard
-Try using a mouse pad and avoid resting it on the desk
-Type softly
-Sleep in an upright position to avoid pressure on your nerves
-Don't tie the hand bandage very tightly

Some simple remedies for Carpel Tunnel Syndrome
-You can apply ice pack for relieve
-Usage of acupuncture or osteopathy
-Get your arms, wrists massaged

Carpal tunnel syndrome reached epidemic proportions in the 90’s and has now achieved a status equaling pandemic proportions in the 21st century. With carpal tunnel syndrome having such devastating effects on millions of people each year, how do you know if you or someone you know has it?
With so much attention and hype the past 10-years concerning carpal tunnel syndrome in the workplace, you would think that a clear-cut picture would exist regarding the “how’s” “why’s” and “what is it’s” of carpal tunnel. Although carpal tunnel syndrome should be easily recognizable with such extensive media exposure, you would be amazed at how many people, including a lot of doctors, who do not recognize the symptoms or misdiagnose it as something other than carpal tunnel syndrome.
In order to provide a more clear picture of what carpal tunnel is, why and how it develops and what can be done to eliminate it, I have provided information below to explain the process so that you can better identify and therefore prevent carpal tunnel syndrome from taking over your life.
What is the Carpal Tunnel?
The carpal tunnel is a passageway in which the nine flexor tendons, median nerve, arteries, blood and lymphatic vessels pass through in order to supply function and movement to the fingers and wrist.
The carpal bones line the carpal tunnel on the posterior surface (backside) of the wrist with the transverse carpal ligament positioned on the anterior (front side) of the wrist. The size of the carpal tunnel is about the size of the index finger in diameter, and the flexor tendons, arteries and nerves glide past one another with ease in a carpal tunnel that has not decreased in size.
How Does Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Develop?
Because the finger and wrist muscles are constantly overused in one-way movement patterns, (Gripping, squeezing, typing, etc.) a "muscle imbalance" develops, causing the carpal bones to shift, in turn, making the carpal tunnel smaller and impinging the structures within, resulting in painful and debilitating symptoms.
What are the Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
· Tingling
· Numbness
· Paresthesia (Pins & needles)
· Loss of grip-strength / coordination
Sensations involving tightness, discomfort, stiffness and pain on the front side of the hand and wrist may be present in carpal tunnel, but may also be symptoms of a general repetitive strain injury.
The only true telltale signs of carpal tunnel syndrome that you need to be aware of affect the thumb, index, middle and sometimes one-half of the ring finger. (All of the fingers and symptoms listed do not have to be experienced simultaneously for you to have carpal tunnel syndrome.)
If you have symptoms in your entire ring and/or little finger and your doctor tells you that you have carpal tunnel syndrome, you don’t! The ULNAR nerve supplies function to the ring and little finger and has nothing to so with carpal tunnel syndrome. (If the ring and/or little fingers are affected, it may either be Cubital Tunnel Syndrome or Guyon’s Syndrome)
How Are the Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Eliminated?
Carpal tunnel syndrome can quickly and easily be eliminated by performing a good stretch and exercise program that addresses the existing muscle imbalance that is the cause of carpal tunnel in most cases.
Staying Symptom-Free:
Knowing why carpal tunnel syndrome develops and what to look for is the key to keeping your hands healthy. With the information provided above you should now be able to recognize the disabling symptoms and take the steps necessary in order to stop it before it stops you!

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a devastating injury that affects more than 8 million people in the United States and continues to increase each and every year.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is one of many repetitive strain injuries (RSI’s) that are everywhere; homes, offices, assembly lines, grocery stores, book clubs, construction sites, dental offices, everywhere! Because carpal tunnel syndrome is so commonplace, and its effects so devastating, it is important to be knowledgeable of how it occurs, what its symptoms are, the testing methods used and what treatment options are available, as the prevention of any injury, especially carpal tunnel, begins with education.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a disorder affecting the median nerve, which supplies function to the thumb, index, middle and one half of the ring finger. Usually the symptoms are most prevalent in the thumb, index and middle fingers (Sometimes one-half of the ring finger) and include numbness, tingling, paresthesia (pins and needles), pain and tightness in the front of the hand, wrist and forearm. These symptoms do not have to occur simultaneously, and may only affect one finger one day and then three fingers a few days later.
If a doctor provides a carpal tunnel diagnoses and the symptoms are in the ring and little fingers, it is NOT carpal tunnel syndrome! The ulnar nerve, not the median nerve, supplies function to the ring and little finger. Repetitive strain disorders affecting these two fingers are usually either Guyon’s syndrome, entrapment of the ulnar nerve in the guyon’s canal at the wrist junction, or cubital tunnel syndrome, entrapment of the ulnar nerve at the elbow junction. This is a common mistake made by many, many physicians and is completely inexcusable as they often recommend surgery for the patient, causing the patient to undergo an unnecessary procedure, and what makes it worse, for the wrong disorder!
If symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome do arise, doctors will recommend that a nerve conduction velocity (NCV) test or an Electromoyogram (EMG) be performed to see if carpal tunnel syndrome truly exists. These tests are often painful to the individual being tested, very expensive, and often give false positives and false negatives. This is why it is recommended that manual carpal tunnel tests be performed in order to obtain a more accurate (and much cheaper) diagnosis. Manual carpal tunnel tests take no longer than 10 minutes, have a high accuracy rate, are painless and are very cheap in comparison to the NCV and EMG tests.
The recommended manual carpal tunnel tests consist of the following:
· Phalen’s Test: The wrist is flexed for 30 to 60 seconds in order to compress the median nerve and duplicate/increase the symptoms.
· Reverse Phalen’s Test: The wrist is extended for 30 to 60 seconds in order to stretch the median nerve and duplicate/increase the symptoms. Stretching the median nerve if it is already impinged will duplicate/increase the symptoms if a patient has carpal tunnel syndrome.
· Tinnel Sign: Tapping directly over the median nerve at the wrist junction will cause carpal tunnel symptoms to exhibit themselves.
· Compression Test: Direct pressure is applied over the location of the median nerve for 30-60 seconds to see if carpal tunnel symptoms are exhibited.
If a positive diagnosis comes back, most doctors will push for surgery, a procedure that has a terrible success rate and is to only be performed as a last resort once all other conservative treatment methods have been utilized. Conservative therapy is the key to successfully recovering from carpal tunnel syndrome and obtaining not only short-term but long-term relief as well. The following is a list of conservative treatments that should be utilized in order to help prevent carpal tunnel syndrome from developing, but also rehabilitating carpal tunnel syndrome after it is already present.
· Ergonomics: Utilize proper ergonomic tools and equipment when working.
· Breaks: Take short breaks every 30 minutes when working in order to help reduce excessive strain on the hands.
· Stretches: Stretch the muscles that ‘close’ the hands as these are the muscles that are exercised all day long in activities such as typing, writing, gripping a steering wheel, using a computer mouse, carrying groceries and everything else that is done day in and day out. When a muscle is involved in exercise, it becomes shorter, therefore it needs to be stretched and lengthened both during and after the exercises are completed. (End of day)
· Exercises: Exercise and strengthen the muscles that are used to ‘open’ the hands, as these muscles do not receive much direct stimuli / exercise. (i.e. People do not turn doorknobs, hold things, type, use a computer mouse or lift things with the backs of their hands.)
The information provided above reveals how carpal tunnel syndrome occurs, what its symptoms are, the testing methods most commonly used and the best conservative treatment options that are used to thwart its existence.
It is very important for individuals to become well acquainted with the proper information and tools in order to maintain and increase their level of health and productivity. It is also important for people to speak to their doctors regarding their health concerns, and if someone is involved in an occupation that is considered high-risk for carpal tunnel, they should discuss this with their physician, but is even more critical that people become self educated as no one can take care of you better than “YOU”!

It slows ageing, promotes healthy vision, has anti-cancer properties, increases immunity towards various chronic diseases. Yes, carrot does it all for you. This natural health booster enhances your health on various grounds and fills in the essential vitamins to your body like pro-vitamin A, B3, C and E. Other important advantages of carrot besides those mentioned above includes preventing various gastrointestinal complaints like colic and ulcers and it also prevents heart attacks and cancer by reduces cholestrol levels as it has high soluble fibre levels.
. Tip: Carrots are more nutritous when eaten cooked. The valuable nutrients lie either in or just beneath the skin.
See how Carrot works?
Beta-carotene, the main content of carrots, is maily responsible for improving your vision. The vitamin A forms a purple pigment called rhodopsin the eye needs to see in dim light. Hence, if we dont get adequate vitamin A, it can lead to night blindedness.
Beta-carotene also acts as an anti-oxidant which prevents free radicals responsible for cancer and heart attacks. A study at Texas and Chicago states that men with higher content of Beta-carotene are 37% less prone to heart related diseases. Carrot has one more anti-oxidant called alpha-carotene which reduces the risk of lung cancer.
. Tip: Cut off the leafy tops of the carrot before storing them. The leafy tops suck the vitamins from the main body robbing its nutritions. You can make best use of carrots by adding it to your favourite juices.
Wow, see the magic of carrot which is so easily available and cheap too. So start having atleast 50 gm of Carrot daily to fill in the required amount.

Carving the Flesh With the Scalpel of Philosophy

Word Count:

Summary:
According to some recent studies, it would appear that one's outlook, attitude, and philosophy towards life holds a greater influence on physical well-being and longevity than initially believed. The main theory to explain this is that a positive outlook has a strong influence on mental health and subconscious actions, theoretically leading people away from self-destructive lifestyles. Another is that positive thought has a direct influence on a person's physical being, likely through chemical responses.


Keywords:
mental health, depression, relationship, self-destruction, side effects

Does your attitude have a connection to your physical and mental health? Up until recently, the answer to that was a strong 'No' from a strictly scientific standpoint. However, according to some recent studies, there may be more to it than the obvious. More or less, mental health and personal outlook and philosophy are connected. There isn't much scientific data to explain how the two are connected, but there is ample proof of the link. However, what about the body? Will people who perceive themselves as being healthier and more lively actually be in a better physical state than others? Unlike the mental health link, there is no definite connection made just yet, but there have been some findings that point to a possibility.

According to a large-scale study conducted by Duke University, there is a link between attitudes and physical well-being. The reports state that the research team did their best to eliminate external factors, such as mental health issues, vices, and hereditary diseases from the final results. The end result of the report makes the claim that, if two people with similar states of physical well-being are taken, the one with a more positive outlook is more likely to have better health in the long-term. The one that has more fear and anxiety about his physical condition is more likely to suffer from some sort of illness or have poorer overall health than his counterpart.

Of course, before taking this into account, people should also eliminate possible factors affecting longevity and health. For example, people who have depression or Thanatos complex may perform acts that can permanently compromise their immune system, possibly cutting their life expectancy. The relationship between diet and vices to physical and mental health also plays a larger role than outlook and attitude theoretically do. Further study is under way, but Dr. Ellen Idler has studied the research data and the implications extensively. She believes that the link is less of a “mystical” one and more deeply rooted in the principles of cause and effect. According to her theory, the relationship between attitude and longevity is one that is connected to mental health.

In her theory, people who have a more negative outlook are more likely to slip into unhealthy lifestyles. Whether this is subconscious or not would likely vary from case to case, but she believes that negative attitudes tend to eventually lead to negative states of mind. It is known that mental health is connected closely to physical health, with a number of mental disorders either having physical symptoms or side effects. While a negative outlook in life may not necessarily be an act of self-destruction on the person's part, it may help push the person into an increasingly degenerate lifestyle.

Further study is likely to be needed before any concrete connections are made. There are currently two major areas where the studies are liable to concentrate. First is the theory that a positive outlook is linked to mental health and that is how it affects the physical well-being and longevity of a person. Another, far less accepted theory, is that a positive outlook actually can influence the body in the same way that some people manifest physical symptoms simply by believing that they are ill.

Article Body:
The secrets of the casinos are not the kind of secrets that you may think. They are not secrets like the third slot machine in every row pays out on the hour, they are more like things they do to distract you from the obvious.

One of the biggest secret the casinos do not want you to know is that if you use your head and not act irrationally you can go home with some money in your pockets, unfortunately most people enter a casino and all logic flies right out of their heads. They start seeing the bells and whistles of the casinos, and people with stacks of chips and all they can think of is what they are going to do with all the money they are going to win from the casino.

Using your head is the key to winning money in the casino. The first think you need to remember is that the odds of you winning the big jackpot are so outrageously against you, that it is not worth losing your hard earned money on. So by being smart and not trying to get rich on one spin of the roulette wheel, one toss of the dice at the Craps table or one go on the slot machine you can consistently win smaller amounts that at the end of the day can a large sum of money.

Next time you are in the casino try going to the 10 dollar Roulette table and only play red or black. Each win you will double your bet, and at 10 dollars a spin you can make 100 dollars in less then 30 minutes. I usually walk up to a table and wait for the wheel to land on the same color 3 times in a row then bet on the other color. Then after I have made some money I will start to play some other bets, but I only stay on the outside of the board. The odds are much better at 3 to 1 or 4 to 1 instead of 40 to 1. Using this method I have managed to turn $20 into $900 in just over 3 hrs. It may not sound like a fortune, but as I said before walking in poor and walking out a millionaire is not realistic.

Next time you are at a casino look for a clock or window. Ok do not waste your time, there are none. Another secret of the casinos is that they want you to have no concept of time. When you are gambling time seems to go faster, and if there were clocks or a window in the casino you would have some idea of how long you have been gambling and would then start to think about leaving the casino instead if losing all track of time and spending all day and night in the casino. They do this because at some point you will start to get tired but be kept awake from the adrenalin from gambling, and at this point you can't think straight, and you will start to spend money faster. Always remember the casinos are not there to make you dreams come true they are there to take you for all your money. Any time you leave the casino with some of the casinos money it was accidental.

Some of the tricks the casinos use to keep you gambling are:
No Windows
No Clocks
Ugly colors in the rugs and walls around the exits, and nice colors around the gamming areas will subliminally make you not want to go to those areas. The worse the odds of you winning the nicer the colors of that area will be.

By keeping this information in mind you will not be going home from the casinos and quitting your job but you will have more money in your pocket and you will have had a good time making that money.

Depuis que Singapour a réduit ses exportations de composants électroniques, cette dernière cherche aujourd'hui a développer son activité touristique pour compenser. Pour cela Singapour mise sur ses casinos et jeux vidéo importés.
Selon le co-fondateur de Lonely Planet Guides, si Disneyland a réussi  travers le monde à s'imposer et à réunir chaque jour des millions de touristes, la Chine peut espérer alors prospérer grâce à ses casinos.

Toutefois, Singapour dispose d'un important handicape: elle n'a pas de Angkor Wat ou de Taj Mahal comme investisseur. Depuis longtemps, cette ville est surtout réputée pour ses innombrables centre commerciaux et ses promotions annuelles "Singapore sales".

Vis-à-vis des étrangers, Singapour dispose d'une image peu flatteuse en matière politique. En effet, elle est surtout connue pour ses passeurs de drogue, son taux important de vandalisme, ses coups d'état politiques et son interdiction de vendre des chewing gum.  Culturellement parlant, son développement a surtout été refreiner par les multiples restrictions dont notamment la liberté d'expression et la censure de films et pièces de théâtre.

Toutefois, avec la nouvelle génération de chinois et l'influence des indiens et autres asiatiques qui commencent à voyager partout à travers le monde, Singapour a commencé à travailler sur le projet de nouvelles attractions, incluant deux nouveaux casinos ou encore un parc sur le thème du Studio Universal, et un équivalent des bateaux mouches français, même si aucun de ces projets n'est particulièrement singapourien.

Ainsi, Singapour se "démocratise" et se modernise avec l'ouverture de clubs et de ciné-clubs où l'on peut voir le film new zélandais Lord of the Rings. De plus, la fameuse société de location de films Blockbuster a ouvert ses portes et l'on y trouve à Singapour nombre de films indiens de Bollywood, afin d'attirer d'avantage de touristes indiens.

Ce même mois, quelques jours auparavant,  Singapour a autorisé les courses automobiles équivalentes aux célèbres Formule 1, espérant ainsi attirer les touristes de l'autre continent. Citigroup, le groupe en charge de ce projet, espère générer un bénéfice compris entre $150 et $200 million par an, et montrer par là même que Singapour a changé.

Mettre un circuit de Formule 1 est une idée brillante mais reste encore loin d'être une idée typiquement nationale, ce qui, au final, risquerait d'enclencher une réaction inverse à l'objectif tant attendu.

Quant aux casinos, ces derniers devraient ressembler à ceux déjà présents à Macau afin d'obtenir un bénéfice de près de $37 milliards de dollars par an.

Face à ce changement radical, la population locale reste sceptique, voir pessimiste.
Pour eux, la mise en place d'un circuit de Formule 1 n'est qu'un moyen d'obtenir une publicité gratuite. Concernant les casinos qui devraient voir le jour d'ici quatre ans, ces derniers se sont réunis pour signer une pétition allant a l'encontre de ce projet, justifiant les méfaits des jeux sur les familles et les joueurs compulsifs, en ajoutant par ailleurs que ce concept attirerait d'avantage la population locale que les touristes.

Des intellectuels et représentants de communautés tels Paul Théroux , romancier et écrivain pour l'équivalent du Guide du Routard, déplorent cet engouement de la part de la ville. Pour eux, Singapour cherche à devenir une ville moderne et effacer toute son histoire et culture, pour faire place à une ville "que l'on trouve partout" , ce qui représenterait également la fin du quartier de Chinatown, célèbre pour ses magasins .

Votre cuisine, faites en donc un bar à volonté que vous pourrez toujours redécorer, sans coûts excessifs, façon Casino Enghien ou autre, selon vos goûts.

L'avantage de ces jeux?? Faire régner une ambiance incomparable.

Pourquoi la roulette et le craps dans le salon?

Rien de mieux pour mettre de l'ambiance, et le salon est la pièce idéale puisque pièce d'accueil de toute la communauté, située en général près de l'entrée.

Si votre chambre le permet, installer y les jeux de poker et / ou de blackjack. En effet, ces jeux, tout aussi attrayants que la roulette et le craps, demande cependant plus de concentration et un endroit plus confine serait le bien venu. De plus, cela donnerait la sensation aux invites de pouvoir se balader d'une table a une autre en toute liberté, comme en salle de casino véritable.

pour le fun ou pour de l'argent. En effet, qui ne s'est jamais posé les questions suivantes: " en ouvrant un compte sur ce casino, que va-t-il m'arriver? Les systèmes de paiements et les transactions via ma carte de crédit sont ils fiables? Comment m'en assurer?"
La sécurité reste donc l'élément essentiel à prendre en compte par le joueur avant d'effectuer quelque pari que ce soit.

Comment donc pouvoir jouer en toute tranquillité? Les casinos virtuels ont donc mis en place des logiciels de cryptage afin de préserver la confidentialité de vos données bancaires personnelles. Les numéros de cartes de crédit

Les casinos en ligne sécurisés prennent des mesures pour protéger leurs joueurs. Certains sites Web utilisent des logiciels de cryptage pour protéger vos informations financières et ont pour éthique de préserver vos données personnelles.
Assurez vous donc de la fiabilité du site!
Pour cela, vérifiez que le site dispose d'une charte de présentation, généralement connue sous la dénomination " Qui sommes nous?" et contrôlez son évaluation par des sites professionnels.

Prenez le temps de lire chaque page du site concernant les moyens de paiement mis en place, les logiciels utilisés mais aussi la disponibilité de leur service client, que vous pouvez également testez au préalable en les contactant pour un problème fictif et déterminer ainsi leur temps de réaction  sur le casino dans lequel vous voulez vous inscrire.


Les casinos en ligne les plus sécurisés sont les sites les mieux établis et reconnus par une instance officielle. Consultez la fréquentation d'un site donné et vérifiez les affiliations du site. Les sites réputés sont plus populaires et plus sûrs.


Après ce premier contrôle, vérifiez que le site dispose de services non proposés par des casinos en ligne de mauvaise réputation. Assurez-vous que le casino propose une assistance client par chat, email ou téléphone non facturé. Dans le cas contraire, rendez vous sur un autre site.
Vérifiez aussi que ce casino dispose d'un contrôle et d'une politique à l'encontre de joueurs frauduleux. Certains sites dispose d'un système évaluant le nombre de fois où deux joueurs jouent au même jeu. En cas de suspicion de tricherie,  le site interdit la présence de ces derniers  à vie. Si vous suspectez une tricherie, contactez le site web immédiatement.


Dans le cas où un site ne vous indique pas clairement quel logiciel est utilisé pour préserver vos informations personnelles ou n'offre pas d'assistance, sortez immédiatement. Inutile de prendre des risques inutiles. En cas de problèmes de déconnexion répétées ou vous semblant suspectes, renseignez vous d'avantage.

Pour un bref rappel, ces derniers peuvent être répartis en trois catégories. On y distingue les jeux flash, à télécharger ou en direct .
Les jeux de casinos sont les jeux de paris en ligne les plus populaires en raison des gains que l'on peut y remporter. Mais quels sont les plus rentables?

Casinos directement sur server:

Il s'agit de plusieurs sites surlesquels les joueurs et les utilisateurs peuvent jouer aux jeux de casinos tels le Bingo, Black Jack, Baccarat, Poker et bien d'autres encore, ne nécéssitant pas de téléchargement préalable d'un logiciel particulier, puisque ces derniers vous sont proposes sur  Macromedia Flash, Macromedia Shockwave, ou Java, déjà intégrés sur votre browser. Ces derniers sont les plus populaires.

Casinos en Ligne A Télécharger :

 Même principe que le précédent. Toutefois, pour avoir accès aux différents jeux, l'utilisateur doit télécharger le logiciel du casino sur son ordinateur. Bien que la qualité soit généralement meilleure au niveau des graphismes, le téléchargement a pour inconvénient de prendre énormément de place sur le disque dur.
Le logiciel est directement relié au service du casino sans avoir besoin de recourir browser. Ainsi, l'image et le son fonctionnent beaucoup plus rapidement que sur le support relié au server de l'ordinateur. Toutefois, le temps de téléchargement initial peut être très long.

Les casinos "en Direct":

Représentent le top  de casinos en ligne. Ces derniers permettent aux joueurs d'être face à une interface mondiale et directement avec le casino, comme si vous y étiez! Le joueur peut intervenir à tout moment et se confronter n'importe quand à d'autres joueurs et ce sur plusieurs de poker, blackjack et autres  tables grâce à la présence de fenêtres windows.  C qui le différencie des autres? Le joueur a la possibilité de choisir les meilleurs tables, de varier ses plaisirs en cours de parties et de joueur sans se lasser toute la nuit.

On distingue donc les jeux populaires suivants:

Les jeux de cartes:
Asian stud, Baccarat , Blackjack, Casino war, Caribbean Stud Poker, Chinese poker, Faro, Four card poker, Let It Ride, Mambo stud, Pai gow poker, Red Dog, Spanish 21, Texas Hold'em Bonus Poker, Three card poker,  Two-up.
Ces jeux sont généralement considérés comme des jeux de Tables et se jouent sur un tapis feutré. Un croupier est toujours présents pour ces jeux puisque ce dernier est en charge de la distribution des cartes.

Dés:
Craps, Pai Gow,  Sic bo, Chuck-a-luck

Nombres Aléatoires:
Big Six wheel, Roulette,Bingo, Keno et bien d'autres encore.
Ces jeux sont basés sur le fruit du pur hasard.


Sans oublier les fameuses Machines A Sous, les Loteries et les Vidéo Poker. Ces dernières ne peuvent être jouées que par un joueur à la fois et ne demande aucune exigence particulière ni aucune stratégie. C'est pourquoi il est l'un des jeux les plus prisés aussi bien en ligne qu'en cercle virtuel.

Les jeux en ligne cependant offrent aux joueurs des avantages à long terme supérieurs à ceux offerts par des casinos réels et leur donnent la sensation de toujours garder le contrôle sur leurs jeux et d'être responsable de leurs choix.

Découvrez l'histoire des jeux video en ligne et les jeux d'arcades présents en salles réelles et virtuelles des casinos.

Article Body:
Compte tenu de l'imprécision de la définition même du jeu vidéo, sa date d'apparition n'est pas claire. Ce loisir aurait débuté, après divergences et débats de spécialistes, dès 1962 avec Spacewar.  Pong reste cependant le premier jeu dont le concept fut le déclencheur de la vidéo mania.

Jusqu'en 1983, celle-ci connaît une effervescence puis un déclin incontestable. Avec le développement des technologies au Japon, celle-ci revient sous les feux de la rampe en 1985 avec ses premières consoles NINTENDO et les fameux jeux de la série Super Mario ou Mario Bros.

Mais cette technologie de jeux vidéo s'applique également dans le domaine des jeux de casinos en ligne ou en cercle reel.

En effet, on y retrouve les fameuses bornes d'arcades.En cercle réel, une salle leur est tout particulierement consacrée.

Un jeu d'arcade se trouve  dans une machine munie d'un monnayeur, d'un écran et d'un dispositif de contrôle. Ils ont la particularité d'être payants, on achète un ou plusieurs crédits en glissant une ou plusieurs pièces dans le monnayeur. Selon les jeux et les réglages, chaque crédit permet de démarrer une partie, la continuer après avoir perdu, acheter des bonus dans le jeu, le joueur doit apprécier au maximum un jeu d'arcade dès le début car une partie ne dure généralement que 5 ou 6 minutes au contraire des jeux virtuels où une partie peut durer plusieurs heures d'affilées.

Les jeux d'arcades au sein des casinos sont: Le Bonus Bowling, Jour de Derby, Dés Tourbillon, Pile ou face, Fléchettes Jackpot, Keno, Jackpot Génie Haut Bas, Mégaball, Tir de pénalité, Pop Bingo, Dés et Montagne russe, roue gagnante,Video Poker, Quilles payantes, Poker slots, Génie Haut Bas, Tour du Monde,  Roche papier Ciseaux, Kéno Expérience.

On trouve ces  jeu vidéo en ligne généralement sous une version 3D, avec bruitage et effets sonores et couleurs flash.

Après plusieurs crises principalement dues à une baisse de la qualité des productions, le jeu vidéo s'est rapidement hissé à un rang d'activité majeure. L'économie créée autour de cette pratique a eu des conséquences notables sur notre société. La montée en puissance des ordinateurs et la rentabilité de la loi de Moore peut être en grande partie expliquée par le fait que les personnes qui sont le plus enclin à acheter un matériel informatique neuf et souvent rénové sont principalement des joueurs ; la bureautique et la navigation sur internet étant des activités requérant de faibles ressources matérielles. Pour cette raison, les fabriquants de matériel informatique (cartes graphiques, cartes audio…) ont très tôt sponsorisé les compétitions de jeu vidéo.

Au mois d'Aout, les casinos en ligne avaient le vent en poupe au sein des Clubs de Foot. On assistait alors à une ère des nouveaux pris! L'euphorie des Casinos en ligne comme sponsor de clubs!


Keywords:

Article Body:
En effet, Casino 888.com sponsorisait le FC Toulouse et PartyGaming le FNCA de Nantes! Oui mais voila, c'était sans compter sur la Ligue Professionnelle de Football.

Dimanche dernier, sur les maillots du FC Toulouse, on retrouvait bien les couleurs du casino mais les signes ???.com. Qu'est ce donc ???.com me direz-vous. Il s'agit tout simplement de son sponsor Casino 888.com.

Pourquoi?
Alors que les joueurs ont pour obligation de porter les couleurs et le nom du casino, la Ligue professionnelle a, quant à elle, décidée d'exclure les casinos de la publicité et du sponsoring. D'où l'omission. Or, tout le monde l'aura compris le sigle - faisait bien référence au casino sponsor de l'équipe.

La Ligue explique son refus. Du fait de l'arrestation de certains géants de casinos en ligne depuis le mois de septembre, dont le derneir en date de Bwin arreté en France, la ligue se voit le droit d'interdire la publicité, le sponsoring pour les paris en ligne.

Samedi, une autre équipe, la FC Monaco a rencontré le même problème que le FC Toulouse lors de son match face au Mans. Un représentant de l'équipe explique que, sans cette alternative, le coup d'envoi du match n'aurait pu être donné.

On se souvient encore des paroles de Jean-Luc Gripond, vice-président du club nantais, "le FCNA a décidé de s'associer à un nouveau sponsor disposant: "premièrement une dimension internationale, et notre football a besoin de partenaires de cette dimension, deuxièmement un lien avec les nouvelles technologies, ce qui représente pour nous le futur".

Qu'en est il aujourd'hui?
Un enquête a été menée ( voir notre article Bonnes Nouvelles pour les Casinos en Ligne).

Les paris sont monopole d'état en France et on pourrait penser que l'arrestation des cadres de BWin s'est opérée au bénéfice de la Française des jeux. Aussi, peu de temps après, la Commission européenne a décidé de s'intéresser de plus près à la question du monopole d'État pour les paris et les jeux. La volonté de la commission est clairement affichée, soit les États membres les considèrent néfastes pour leurs ressortissants et interdisent totalement les jeux en ligne, soit ils les autorisent et permettent aux sociétés comme 888.com d'offrir leurs services sur le marché.
