An electronic nebulizer is like any other nebulizer used to convert the medicine into mist form so that it directly reaches the lungs for quick recovery. They are not only used by humans but it comes handy to treat animals from influenza and other kinds of respiratory issues. These nebulizers depend on membrane vibration to produce aerosol. Since the machine depends on vibration, air compressors are not required, thereby making the nebulizers compact and affordable. Electronic nebulizers are available in all leading medical supply stores. Online stores offer better deals when compared to offline stores. Browse alphabetically to catch the best deals.
Ultrasonic nebulizer is also a kind of electronic nebulizer as they use sound waves to convert liquid medication into mist for easy inhaling. A crystal is placed inside the machine that generates sound and the conversion process takes place. A valve is also present in some models to control the flow of the mist. Ultrasonic nebulizer is not capable of handling all types of medicines. Another major application of ultrasonic nebulizer is that it is used in humidifier apparatus that helps to spray water particles to dampen dry buildings. Ultrasonic nebulizer is more popular because of its various applications. It is simple to use and easy to clean.
Electronic nebulizer was invented in the year 1930 and it was initially called a Pneumostat. This machine converted liquid medicine into aerosol using an electrical compressor. When these electronic nebulizers were new to the market they were priced high and since it was used only by selected few while most of the users preferred hand driven nebulizer called the Park-Davis Glaseptic. It was only in the year 1964 Ultrasonic wave nebulizers were introduced. They were far more efficient and user friendly that most of them turned toward ultrasonic nebulizers. With the passage of time more advanced electronic nebulizers have replaced the traditional models.
Electronic Vibrating Mesh Technology or VMT is the latest in the nebulizer world. They produce dense medicated aerosol by moving through a metal alloy mesh. VMT is lightweight and compact and is absolutely portable. In this wonder machine around 98 percent of the medication is delivered. This means there is very minimal waste of the medicines. The adapters are compatible with any masks and T-piece. The head of the unit can be removed easily for cleaning purposes. Electronic Nebulizer with VMT comes with a main power unit, medication cup, mesh cap, mask adapter, mouth piece, instructional video and a carry case. This nebulizer weighs just 6oz.

There are more than 45 breeds of rabbits in the world, but only about 17 have a “commercial” (large, chubby, meaty) body type which are preferable for meat production. Characteristics which make some meat rabbit breeds better than others are a higher meat-to-bone ratio, quick growth, fur color and ease of care.
Adult Size: Medium (7-10 pounds/ 3.5-4.75 kilograms)
Californian rabbits were developed in the USA in the 1920’s to provide good meat and fur production. Californians are a cross of Himalayan, Standard Chinchilla and New Zealand white rabbits and are currently the second most popular meat producing rabbits in the world. The body is plump but fine-boned. Californian rabbits look very similar to the Himalayan rabbit with a predominantly white body and black on the feet, nose, ears and tail. Their average litter size is 6-8 bunnies.
Adult Size: Large (8-12 pounds/ 3.6-5.4 kilograms)
Despite the name, New Zealand rabbits were first bred in America in 1916 for meat and fur production and are currently the number one meat rabbit in the United States. They come in several different colors (black, red and white) but the white rabbits are the most popular for meat production because of their large, broad, and muscular bodies. When mature, bucks weigh from 8-10 pounds and females from 9-12 pounds. New Zealand rabbits are ready to slaughter as fryers after just 2 months. Their average litter size is 8-10 bunnies.
Adult Size: Small (4-6 pounds/ 1.8-2.7 kilograms)
Although this rabbit is quite small, it was bred in Florida in the 1960’s as a meat rabbit which would also be functional for laboratory use. The fur is white with good density and texture, and they have a compact, meaty body, short neck, and small head.
Palomino rabbits have a smaller bone structure than other meat rabbits which gives you a higher meat ratio. But they take a bit longer to grow. Bucks are 8-10 pounds and does usually range from 9-11 pounds. Litter size is usually 8 kits but can range from 6 to 12. Palominos come in two colors: Golden & Lynx. The Golden has an orange/brown golden color (as the name suggests) and the Lynx has a bit more grey or silver tone in the fur. They have a very docile and friendly temperament.
Adult Size: Medium (8-11 pounds/ 3.6-5 kilograms)
The Beveren is one of the oldest and largest breeds of fur rabbits, originating in Belgium. Their coats can be blue, white, black, brown and lilac. They are a rare breed but well tempered, clean, and smart. The fur is rather long (about 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 inches), dense and glossy. The breed is hardy and well suited for meat production because of large litter size, the young grow fairly fast, and the does are typically docile and make good mothers.
Investing in real estate can seem a daunting, although appealing, prospect to many people. It sounds like an interesting and exciting way to make money, and you can picture yourself sitting in a cigar bar, framed by dark woods, toasting your latest profits with a fine snifter of scotch (well I know I can). But you've heard plenty of stories of people getting stuck with properties, and then there's your friend the investment banker who claims stocks far surpass real estate as investments. Real estate investment does have its good and bad points, and we're going to demystify them for you.
As the age old saying goes, if you're interested in buying a piece of real estate, you'll want to find the right location, location, location. The most important thing in real estate is location. When looking at different areas to invest in, look at nearby towns. I do not like being more than a one-and-a-half to 2 hour drive from my investment properties. Use the US Census data to make sure the population is growing, along with job growth and income. I also like to review the appreciation rates for the last 5 years to make sure the area is not already overvalued. The next thing you'll do is visit the area and get a feel for the town. This is where your gut will tell you the most. Is there a decent downtown, cafés, restaurants, a library, and movie theater? The last thing to look at follows the previously rule of economics: supply and demand. Remember your population growth figures and look through the area to see how many homes are available. Check the permits department to see how many applications have been applied for, and approved for new construction. Find out the vacancy rates for rentals, anything near to, or above 10% should raise concerns. Research what similar properties are renting for.
Some areas to consider are Spartanburg / Greenville and Rock Hill in South Carolina; and Edenton, Greenville, and Greensboro in North Carolina. Also, Beaufort County in North Carolina where the oldest town of Bath is located. Do not Forget, do your homework before investing anywhere!
Once you've found a good area, you'll need to decide what type of property to buy. I like residential income properties because everyone needs to live somewhere. A duplex is nice because you can rent out one side and live in the other. However, it has drawbacks because you'll be forced to share the yard, and live near your tenant. A single family home has drawbacks because if you lose one tenant, it's totally empty and you're losing money. Multi-family units are great because it's rare that it will be completely empty, although the more people you rent to, the more issues you'll have to deal with. I also like to find the worse house in an up and coming area. You can fix it up and resell it for a profit, or keep it to rent out. You can also buy raw land without any building on it. Raw land is great because there's no building to maintain and watch depreciate. You can subdivide it, and sell off pieces to make some quick profit. You can even rent the land to someone who wants to build a building on it. At the end of the lease, the building is yours!
If you're planning on buying residential properties and renting them out, there's no better place to do it than in a college town. Luckily, North Carolina and South Carolina are filled with blossoming college towns. Before you decide on a town, make sure the campus is made up of resident students, rather than commuters. You might look at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and think it's a great place to buy, but a closer look will tell you most of the students commute. If 30% or less of the students enrolled can be housed on campus, it's well worth looking at. The lower the better. You will pay more for buildings near colleges, but you will also get more rent. The supply of college housing is limited due to zoning codes and the lack of available land. In the case of public schools, they usually do not have the money to build more housing. The demand is growing due to increasing enrollments of both undergraduate and graduate students. Image towns are also becoming very popular with retirees, and remember, professors also need housing. Try to buy near the college, so your tenants can walk to school. Some of my favorite college towns include, Spartanburg, Greenville and Columbia in South Carolina, and Charlotte, Raleigh, Chapel Hill and Durham in North Carolina. These towns are home to the University of South Carolina at Spartanburg; Bob Jones and Furman Universities in Spartanburg and Greenville respectively; USC Columbia; the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Durham and Chapel Hill; and North Carolina State University in Raleigh. All these areas have vibrant downtowns which cater to the universities by offering housing for the students.
Great places to invest in North Carolina and South Carolina can be found along the I-85 corridor. The cost of living is low, and the enjoyment of life is high. Real estate prices have remained more stable along I-85. Land is available along I-85 at affordable prices. Small towns along the route who have been waiting for development are seeing the benefits of living near the Interstate, with new jobs being created in everything from industry to tourism. Now is the time to buy along I-85. Atlanta is creeping north toward Charlotte, with Spartanburg and Greenville in between, and plenty of great towns to choose from. You have excellent access to the mountains of North Carolina, the beaches of South Carolina, and great cities, including Atlanta, Charlotte, Columbia, and Asheville. Combine this with a wide choice of colleges, and good public schools and you have an area that will continue to be in high demand.

Finding an undervalued home to buy as an investment is a great way to ensure a good return on your money. As I said previously, I like to buy the worse house in an up-and-coming area. The old saying is you make your profit when you buy a property, not when you sell it! One way to find "good deals" is to look for foreclosures. Go speak to the owner and try to make a deal before the lender forecloses, or wait until the lender has taken back the property and make an offer. Banks do not like to own other people's property. People who live out-of-town, but have been left a property by a false relative, usually want to liquidate it quickly and will take less than the market value. Attorneys are good sources of these deals. Another way to find a cheap home is to search builders' websites and look for their "spec" homes. These are homes the builders have built without an immediate buyer, and if there is a lack of demand, they are now sitting with them. Sometimes builders will maximizeimate demand and be eager to unload these homes at lower prices. You should also look for those new developments that are just about sold out. Big builders will discount prices on the last couple of homes, so they can move on to the next job.
Before buying any investment, make sure you've budgeted correctly. Research the closing costs you'll have to pay the bank for the loan, and the costs you'll have for home inspections. Make sure you leave room for the unexpected, which always seems to pop up in real estate. Protecting yourself from the beginning with a sound budget is the best way to ensure you have profits at the end. If real estate is right for you, it can be a great opportunity. North Carolina and South Carolina offer many towns to find great properties. Investing in real estate involves lots of patience and research, but your efforts will really pay off. Good luck!
