Surgeons spent 10 hours removing a 33lb tumour after 47 years

Zhao Xingfu had a 33lb (14.9kg) tumour removed from the back of his neck after 47 years 

Surgeons spent 10 hours removing a 33lb (14.9kg) tumour from the back of a man's neck after it had been left untreated for nearly 50 years.  The huge tumour had a circumference of 100cm, or 40 inches.

Zhao Xingfu, 64, said the growth, known as a lipoma, first appeared when he was just 17 and was initially 'the size of an egg'.  Mr Xingfu, from Panzhou City, China, ignored the mass due to it being painless and him being unable to afford treatment.

Due to it being painless and him being unable to afford treatment, Mr Xingfu ignored it 

After the weight of the tumour left Mr Xingfu struggling to walk, his son Zhao Jianjiang sought the help of Dr Dong Shixiang, from the Guizhou Tumour Hospital.

Now at home a week after the surgery, Mr Xingfu is expected to make a full recovery.
An X-ray shows the size of the growth, which was making it difficult for him to walk 

Despite feeling 'relieved' that the operation was a success, Mr Xingfu jokingly said: 'I'm not used to it not being there yet!'

5 Tips For Staying Interested In Your Chosen Career

No comments:

Do you wake up feeling pumped about work, or wanting to stay in bed? So much of our lives is spent working. Don’t waste those precious hours doing something you don’t care about. At the very least, you should be interested in what you do.

Only 13% of employees worldwide say they are engaged in their jobs. What about the other 87%? Many of my coaching clients come to me looking to find more meaning in their career, and I am here to tell you that it is possible. You, too, can break out of your career rut and find your purpose.

Don’t know where to start? Here are five tips for staying interested in your career.

1. Know your “why.” This is fundamental and where you need to start. Why do you do what you do? Make sure you’re in a line of work that you find interesting, and then clearly identify why you’re doing it. I highly recommend Simon Sinek’s book, Start With Why, so that you can more deeply connect to your personal career mission.

2. Set digital goals. Now that you know why you’re doing what you do, set up short-term and long-term goals to keep you engaged and on track! I love digital tools and apps since they can give friendly reminders. Want to get promoted in 12 months? What are the steps you can take to get there? Get them on the calendar, and start working.

How to To Overcome The Skills Gap And Advance Your Career

3. Pick up a new skill. Keep your brain sharp by learning something new. Look into trainings at work, or ask to go to a seminar or conference. Select something that falls outside of your comfort zone but that is still relevant to your career. Your boss will love the added value you’re bringing to the team, while it won’t hurt to add an additional skill to your resume either.

4. Ask for feedback. If you aren’t getting the feedback you need, ask for it. A good manager will want to see that you’re interested in your career as well. Feedback can motivate you to perform better since you’ll feel more valued at work, and it’s a tool for continuous learning. Staying stagnant in your career most likely won’t keep you interested in anything more than a steady paycheck…which can work for a while (if you’re getting paid what you’re worth), but generally isn’t sustainable for career engagement.

5. Be mindful. Start each morning with a positive mantra. Then, watch what you say to yourself and others throughout the day. Avoid negative thoughts and comments about your job, and skip the office gossip. Stop taking everything so personally. Bonus: when you practice mindfulness at work, your stress levels subsequently will go way down.

Here are 3 Skills You Need for a More Successful Career

If you flat out hate your job, follow these tips to stay positive until you’re able to make a switch. Do not stay in a career you despise! I promise that you will never find it interesting.

We all fall into career slumps at one point or another. Personal growth is the key to staying engaged. If you want to stay interested in your career, keep a positive mindset and never stop learning.

Six habits of couples in happy relationships

No comments:

There is no rule book on how to make a relationship work.

Despite love not being a science, there are certain truths that some couples already know which is making their relationship flourish.

Here are six relationship principles successful couples already know.

1.  Relationships are hard work

After watching a ton of romantic comedies in your teenage years, it’s easy to assume that being in a committed relationship will be a bed of roses — forgetting that even roses have thorns.

Perfect relationships don’t just happen; they require hard work and dedication. To have a great relationship, it’s important to have this vital knowledge from the get-go.

2.  Appreciate each other every day

Bouncing off the first point, one may think making an effort daily is hard work — but it’s not.

Appreciating your partner does not always have to be grand gestures but instead, it’s the smaller, more personal efforts that count.

These small gestures make them aware that you care. Also, use your words. ‘I love you’, ‘Thank you’, ‘I appreciate you’ are not so hard to say.

So, instead of looking for the shiniest diamond pendant, you can fill up their car tank or set a glass of water by their bedside for them to wake up to.

3.  Never to go bed angry

Anger never solves anything.

Instead, it makes you self-absorbed, limiting your ability to see the situation clearly or from a different perspective.

Holding a grudge will eventually kill the relationship.

11 Things That Really Matter in a Relationship apart from Communication

4.  Be best friends

This may not sound romantic but you’ll find that those in the happiest relationships say the friendship they share makes for their best moments together.

So if you’re not already best friends with your partner, find a way to become friends and stay that way.

5.  Don’t depend on your partner for your happiness

Relationship amateurs are guilty of making their partners their sole source of happiness.

But those who have figured it out know that only you can make yourself truly happy.

Don’t depend on anyone for your joy.

6.  You can’t change your partner, only yourself

Many people go into relationships with the intention to change their partner.

If that’s your plan, it will most likely fail.

If there’s a character trait you don’t like, don’t enter into the relationship with the hopes that they will change to make you happy.

Instead, be vocal about your feelings from the onset. If the reason is valid and your partner is reasonable, they will compromise.

Superstar Celine Dion resumes her shows at The Colosseum after undergoing surgery

No comments:

Celine Dion has returned to the stage two months after the Grammy award winner cancelled a series of shows to undergo a "minimally invasive surgical procedure." The superstar appeared at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace on Tuesday night for her performance.

The 50-year-old singer was forced to cancel her tour in Las Vegas in March due to a condition known as Patulous Estachian tube. Dion while addressing the people said,
"You know it's been a while since we've done a show I had a little health issue - don't we all,"
"But I have to tell you, I'm extremely happy to be back. The stage is kind of my home away from home and I have to admit I can barely stand on my feet tonight as I am a little bit nervous. It doesn't matter how long you've done a show," Dion admitted. "Every time you do a show you get nervous and I do have butterflies tonight," she added.
"You wonder will the people still come, are they gonna say what if she cancels tonight, will they stay home, I don't take anything for granted. You can see so many shows in Vegas and I'm so very grateful."
"Not everyone has the privilege to do what they love in life so thank you for the privilege."
