  • MICHIGAN - One of the most affordable hybrid vehicles on the market just added another compelling reason to buy for 2017. Toyota opti- mized the size and weight of its hybrid technology for the Prius c platform, but that does not mean it left anything out. The system inte- grates a gasoline engine, an electric motor within a Continuously Variable Transaxle, a nickel-metal hydride battery, a power control unit (inverter), a DC-DC conver ter and a step-up converter. A hybrid control computer governs the seam- less application of gasoline engine and electric power de- pending on driving demands and se- lected drive mode. The Prius c's SULEV (Tier 2 Bin 3)-rated 1.5-liter inline four-cylinder gasoline engine utilizes an Atkinson cycle to help increase efficiency. By itself, the engine produces 73 horsepower and 82 lb.-ft. of torque, contributing to a total hybrid system output of 99 hp. The hybrid system also yields excellent fuel efficiency with an EPA estimated MPG of 48 city/43 highway/46 combined. ECO reduces overall energy consumption by governing the climate control system and throttle operation to help enhance vehicle efficiency. Under certain conditions EV Mode allows the Prius c to be driven solely by electric power for under one mile while remaining below 25 mph. That's useful when navigating one of those huge mall parking lots, for example. The addition of the Toyota Safety Sense C system to all 2017 Prius c models is designed to help drivers avoid hazards on the road.

    OTTAWA - According to statistics released by The Canadian Real Estate Association (Crea), national home sales were up on a month-over-month basis in December 2016. The number of homes trading hands via Canadian MLS® Systems rose 2.2 % month-over-month in December 2016. The rebound recovered less than half of the drop in activity from October to November, when it posted the biggest monthly retreat in more than four years after tightened mortgage regulations came into effect. Activity was up on a month-over-month basis in about 60% of all local mar- kets, led by Calgary and Edmonton where sales rallied following large de- clines in November. Actual (not seasonally adjusted) sales activity was down 5.0% in December from a year ago, when it reached the highest level ever for the month. The number of homes changing hands in 2016 was up by 6.3% annually, reflecting strong sales activity in the first half of the year that has softened since. "Sales set a new annual record last year," said CREA President Cliff Iverson. "However, tightened mortgage regulations are expected to contribute to lower sales activity this year, though the extent to which they will weigh on housing markets across Canada will vary. All real estate is local, and REALTORS® remain your best source for information about sales and listings where you live or might like to in the future." "Home sales are unlikely to benefit the Canadian economy as much in 2017

    as they did in 2016," said Gregory Klump, CREA's Chief Economist. "New regulations mean that in order to qualify for a mortgage, home buyers will either have to save longer for a bigger down payment or purchase a lower priced home. In urban centres where the latter are in short supply, that's likely to translate into fewer sales." The number of newly listed homes fell 3.0% in December 2016 compared to November. New listings were down in about 60% of all local markets, with sizeable declines in B.C.'s Lower Mainland, Calgary and the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).

    Just a 45-minute brisk walk a week can improve arthritis NEW YORK, (IANS) Older people suffering from ar thritis can remain fit by engaging in 45 minutes of moderate physical activity such as brisk walking a week, says a study. According to US federal guidelines, achieving 150 minutes of moderate activity per week helps in preventing premature death and se- rious illness. However, only one in 10 older adults with ar thri- tis meet these guidelines. The team from Nor thwestern Univer- sity conducted a study on both men and women to determine that 45 minutes per week is the magic number for seniors. The researchers measured the physical activity of 1,600 adults who had pain, aching or stiffness in their hips, knees or feet. "We found the most effective type of activity to maintain or improve your function two years later was moderate activity, and it did not need to be done in sessions lasting 10 minutes or more, as recommended by federal guidelines," Dunlop concluded. Ap- proximately, one third of par ticipants improved or had high function after two years. But those par ticipants who achieved the minimum of 45 minutes of moderate activity per week were 80 per cent more likely to improve over two years compared with those doing less.

    Menstrual cramps and Homeopathy BY AKSHAY BANKER

    Recently I was approached by a lady of about 28 years age complaining of severe pain during her menstrual cycle to the extent she would vomit and faint. Her family had to call 911 on several occasions due to this situ- ation and she tried various treatments with no results. Homeopathic treat- ment relieved her complaints com- pletely. So we will try to know about role of homeopathy in female problems. Let us see the most common and pri- mary complaint of Painful Menses also called Menstrual cramps or Dys- menorrhoea. This complaint is usu- ally seen in young girls who have star ted menstruating or may be present in women of other ages. It is generally a dull, throbbing or cramp- ing pain of a mild severity or may be very severe to make the person cry out and inability to do any activity till the pain subsides. If it is mild then no treatment is necessary but if severe then it needs to be treated. Usually the complaint reduces as the girl grows older and stops after first de- livery. Symptoms - include - Dull,

    throbbing or cramping pain in lower abdomen which may begin 4 - 5 days before the onset of menstrual flow, Pain that radiates to lower back and thighs, Nausea and vomiting, Loose stools, Sweating, Dizziness. There may be mood swings or irritability and crying due to the pain. Intensity and severity of symptoms also de- pend on individual sensitivity to bear the pain. I have seen girls to dread the nearing date of menses and they try to prepare themselves for the se- vere experience of pain and other symptoms. Causes - normally the pain is due to the uterus getting ready to expel its inner lining called endometrium in the form of menstruation and this pro- cess of separation along with the con- tractions taking place produce the pain. There is usually no pathologi- cal cause involved. In some women the cramps may be due to - En- dometriosis, Uterine fibroid, Ad- enomyosis, Pelvic inflammatory dis- ease, Cervical stenosis. Dysmenor- rhoea is seen where there is a family history of similar menstrual cramps. Complications - menstrual cramps

    do not have complications by them- selves except they disturb the nor- mal daily activities till they last. Com- plications may arise due to the un- derlying pathological conditions mentioned above. Diagnosis - is usu- ally done by medical history and pel- vic examination. Hysteroscopy, Ul- trasound, CT scan, MRI are advised as and when needed. Treatment - In Allopathy this condition is treated by non-steroid anti inflammatory drugs like Advil, Motrin, Aleve, Ponstel etc which take care of the pain. Hormonal birth control treatment is given to pre- vent ovulation which may decrease the pain. Surgery is advised for the underlying pathology. In Homeopathy the approach to this problem is different. I have seen that patients come to us because it is not good to constantly go on taking pain killers because they do have their side effects on other important or- gans of the body. In homeopathy we take the physical symptoms into con- sideration along with the mental and emotional disturbance it produces. We have seen the young girl to be depressed before menses, some-

    times she fears the appearance of menses and anticipates the menses time with apprehension. A detailed history is taken in which all the com- plaints are covered apart from the menstrual, her mental emotional state, past history and family history are also considered and a constitu- tional medicine is selected. This ho- meopathic medicine will be helpful to put a stop to this problem of men- strual cramps, so there will be no need to take pain killers every month or to wait till the first delivery. An- other advantage of this medicine is that it will also help in treating the underlying pathological conditions like fibroid, endometriosis, etc. Homeopathic medicines are useful for all kinds of diseases of women like menstrual problems, menopause, vaginal discharge, complaints dur- ing pregnancy, complaints of breast, sterility or infer tility, PCOS, sexual complaints, etc. Homeopathy pro- vides a solutions to all kinds of prob- lems and diseases. Biggest advan- tage of taking homeopathic medi- cines is that the medicines do not have side effects, are not habit form- ing and can be taken even during pregnancy.
