Giving Birth in Shaarei Zedek Hospital of Jerusalem, Israel

More pregnant women choose to give birth in Shaarei Zedek hospital, Jerusalem, than any other hospital in Israel. They must be doing something mothers like.

In 2012, there were more than 15,000 births in Shaarei Zedek. This figure does not include any births related to their taking over the management of Bikur Cholim hospital in late December 2012.

In 2013, the combined total of the two locations under their management was over 20,000 births! On average, there were 41 births a day in Shaarei Zedek alone, not including Bikur Cholim.

Shaarei Zedek’s magazine reports that the cesarean rate in 2013 was 11%. Professor Samuelov, the director of the department of obstetrics and gynecology, emphasized that “This is one of the lowest cesarean rates in the country, and the reason for it is that Jerusalem is a very supportive environment for normal birth. We provide assistance and ideal treatment for women who desire to give birth normally, and ensure ways to do it safely. We have a lot of experience, and we have the knowledge and ability to prevent cesareans in certain cases. We make it possible to have a normal birth even after two cesareans, for breech presentations and for twins, something that isn’t accepted in most places.”

As Professor Samuelov notes, “Jerusalem is a very supportive environment for normal birth” because many pregnant women in Jerusalem “desire to give birth normally”. Why is this desire stronger and more common in Jerusalem than it is in other parts of the country? Apparently, the reason is that more women in this locality belong to ethnic groups with a high birth rate. Simply, avoiding an unnecessary cesarean is much more important to mothers who intend to have many children than it is to women who don’t, because of the increased rate of complications in subsequent pregnancies for women with a previous cesarean.

Professor Samuelov explains that his department tries hard to keep the cesarean rate down in order to give pregnant women what they want most. In order to do this safely, Shaarei Zedek provides top-quality medical care, including a carefully supervised trial of labor after two cesareans, and breech births in selected cases.

Supplying what women want means that more pregnant women choose to give birth in Shaarei Zedek hospital, which increases its income, since Israel’s National Insurance Institute pays hospitals very well for births. The fact that Shaarei Zedek officially observes the Sabbath also helps the hospital to attract religious women who have a high birth rate. Two out of three pregnant women in Jerusalem choose one of the hospitals under their management, and only one in three choose one of the Hadassah hospitals. Attracting a greater market share of births is what keeps Shaarei Zedek’s finances in good condition, while the two Hadassah hospitals are having great financial difficulties. As a childbearing woman, you are likely to benefit from choosing a hospital that doesn’t have to cut back on services to patients.

The high birth rate itself provides an incentive to the hospital to keep the cesarean rate down, because the more cesareans a women had, the greater the risk of complications in subsequent pregnancies and deliveries, even if they are delivered by repeat cesarean. Obstetricians in Jerusalem have seen more of these complications than doctors in other places because they serve a population with a high birth rate. Providing the option of regular birth after one or two cesareans for women who want large families prevents a lot of risky high-order repeat cesareans, the kind of surgery that doctors in Jerusalem would rather avoid having to perform.

Presumably, the director of obstetrics in Shaarei Zedek terms Jerusalem “a very supportive atmosphere for normal birth” due to the combination of its high birth rate and competition between the local hospitals.

If it is important to you to participate in decision-making, Shaarei Zedek is very amenable to this. On a recent tour of the delivery suite, without being asked, the midwife leading the tour mentioned the importance of involving the mother in decision-making.

Dr. Abulafia, a retired obstetrician who worked in Shaarei Zedek, in an interview for Shaarei Zedek’s magazine, described the differences between the mother’s participation nowadays and in the past: “The involvement of the childbearing woman has changed noticeably. The accessibility of information, the calculators in the internet, the great variety of medical tests and the modern equipment for imaging and surveillance, have all made the mother into a real partner. In the past it was the doctor who knew and understood, and the patient put herself in his hands. Today, pregnant women come to us with a great deal of knowledge, and this obligates the doctor to keep updated in order to be able to answer any question.”

Shaarei Zedek’s magazine also interviewed the head midwife, Chava Chacham. She too addressed the topic of the mother’s participation: “In the course of the pregnancy, the couple is exposed to a lot of information. In many cases, they ask to be participants in planning the course of the birth and make special requests. We advise mothers to share her desires with us when she arrives at the delivery suite so we can coordinate expectations together. Some women are interested in delayed cutting of the umbilical cord, others request not to bathe the baby immediately. We respect every request. Our staff believes in the autonomy of the childbearing woman’s decisions, and we will do whatever is possible to answer her requests openly and in cooperation. As long as the birth proceeds safely and there is no medical problem, the decision is in the hands of the woman giving birth. There are some women interested in an epidural, others prefer that we decide for them. Many women choose to give birth naturally, and in order to help them to carry out their wishes, some of our midwives took continuing education courses in yoga and relaxation – techniques that help reduce both tension and pain.”

What this means for you as a childbearing woman is that on any given shift, there are likely to be some midwives who enjoy supporting natural birth, and you can probably get one if you request this. If you don’t say anything about your preferences, your midwife may presume that you would like her to recommend when she thinks you would benefit from an epidural. The head midwife of Shaarei Tzedek advises you to tell the staff in the examining room what approach you prefer, natural birth or epidural. If you follow her advice, they will be able to assign a midwife who is most appropriate for you. This will enable both you and the midwife will find the experience as rewarding as it can be.

Only 55% of all women giving birth in Shaarei Zedek request an epidural, but 80% of all first-time mothers get an epidural. In comparison, in hospitals in the center of the country, 80 to 90% receive epidural. One of the reasons for the low rate of epidural usage is that Shaarei Zedek serves a population with a high birth rate, meaning a high percentage of the births there are not first births.

Shaarei Zedek has its own nursing school. Of all departments in a hospital, the quality of the nursing staff is most important in the delivery suite, because medical care during normal uncomplicated childbirth is provided by midwives, not doctors. Having a staff of top midwives means a higher likelihood that childbirth will remain normal and uncomplicated.

You can choose to give birth on their birth stool, which makes the birth more modest and faster and may also be more comfortable for you.

Until recently, Sharei Zedek had three maternity wards with 134 beds. In early 2014, they opened a fourth maternity ward in their new building, with an additional 40 beds. The new ward offers full rooming-in, in which the baby is next to his/her mother almost all hours of the day, including at night. Babies in full rooming-in are taken to the newborn nursery for examinations four times a day. Every mother receives instructions how to care for her baby on her own, but if she wants a short break, she can bring him to the nursery. All three pre-existing maternity wards have partial rooming-in.

Shaarei Zedek also moved its neonatal special care unit to the new building in early 2014. The new unit has 70 beds, enough to handle expected growth in the next few years, as well as the most advanced equipment available today, including things that no other hospital in the country has. Although the old unit had only about 35 beds, almost immediately, the new unit began to care for an average of 50 babies at a time! Two reasons could be contributing to this sudden increase: more mothers whose babies were likely to need special care decided to give birth in Shaare Zedek and/or more babies born elsewhere were transferred here to get the best neonatal special care available in Israel, and among the best in the world.

Automobile Dealerships – Valuing Blue Sky

Blue Sky is the intrinsic value of an automobile dealership, over and above the value of its tangible assets. It is sometimes equated to the goodwill of a car dealership.

Most articles regarding the blue sky value of new car dealerships cite a multiple of earnings formula, such as three times earnings, four times earnings, and so forth. The idea that “blue-sky” can be determined by anything times anything is just plain wrong.

Even NADA the National Automobile Dealers Association in its publication entitled “A Dealer Guide to Valuing an Automobile Dealership, NADA June 1995, Revised July 2000 bemuses, in part, with respect to valuing a dealership by using a multiple of earnings: A Rule of Thumb valuation is more properly referred to as a “greater fool theory.” “It is not valuation theory, however.”

In its Update 2004, NADA omitted its reference to “fool”, but referred to the multiple formula as rarely based upon sound economic or valuation theory, and went on to state: “If you are a seller and the rule of thumb produces a high value, then this is not a matter of great concern. Go for it, and maybe someone will be stupid enough to pay you a very high value.”

A dealership’s blue sky is based upon what a buyer thinks it can produce in net profit. If potential buyers think it cannot produce a profit, the store will not sell. If it can produce a profit, then variables such as desirability of location, the balance the brand will bring to other existing franchises owned, whether or not the factory will require facility upgrades, and so on and so forth, determine whether or not a buyer will buy that particular brand, in that particular location, at that particular time.

I have been consulting with dealers for nearly four decades and have participated in over 1,000 automotive transactions ranging from $100,000 to over $100,000,000 and have never seen the price of a dealership sale determined by any multiple of earnings unless and until all of the above factors have been considered and the buyer then decided he, she or it was willing to spend “x” times what the buyer thought the dealership would earn, in order to purchase the business opportunity.

To think otherwise would be to subscribe to the theories that (1) even though you think a dealership could make a million dollars, the store is worth zero blue sky because it made no money last year; and (2) if a store has been making $5 million per year you should pay say 3 times $5 million as blue sky even though you think you will not produce that kind of profit. Both propositions are absurd. If a buyer does not think a dealership is worth blue sky, then what he is really saying is that he sees no business opportunity in the purchase and therefore, in my opinion, he should not buy the store.

Each dealership is unique with respect to its potential, location, balance that its brand brings a dealer group, and condition of facility. The sale is also unique with respect to whether it is a forced liquidation, orderly liquidation, arms length, insider, or a case where an anxious buyer is trying to induce an unwilling seller. There are management factors to consider, length and term of leases, possibilities or non-possibilities of purchasing the facilities and whether or not the factory wants to relocate the store or to open a new store up the street.

In the car business it is impossible to pick a dealership or a franchise out of a hat, multiply its earnings by some mystical number and predict either what the dealership is worth, or what price it would sell for – and it doesn’t matter if you are talking about a Toyota, Honda, Ford, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Dodge, or any other dealership. At any given time one franchise might be considered more or less desirable than another, but they are all valued in the same manner.

Synopsis of Automobile Industry

It was way back in 1769 when a steam-powered automobile was created for transport purposes. The next important year was 1806, when cars were running on fuel gas and was powered by internal combustion engines. Later electric cars came into the industry during the 20th century; However it became popular only in 21st century when consumers and government were more concerned about low-emission vehicles.

Phases in automobile industry:

• Steam automobiles (Cugnot Steam Trolley)
• Electric automobiles (The Henney Kilowatt)
• Internal combustion engines (Benz Patent Motorwagen)
• Veteran era (Renault Voiturette)
• Brass / Edwardian era (Ford Model T, Mercer Raceabout, Bugatti Type 13)
• Vintage era (Austin 7, Bugatti Type 35, Lancia Lambda, Cadillac V-16)
• Pre-World War era (Alvis Speed ​​20, Ford V-8, Bugatti Type 57, Volkswagen Beetle)
• Post-War era (Morris Minor, Jaguar E-type, Ford Mustang, Datsun 240Z)
• Modern era (Toyota Corolla, Range Rover, Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 3 Series, Ford Taurus)

The largest automakers in US are General Motors Corp., Ford Motor Co. and Chrysler. US ranks third after Japan and China under the list of world's top 20 motor vehicle producing countries.

The future of cars is overloaded with high end technologies which are eco-friendly and cost effective for customers. The auto manufacturers are spending a lot of money in R & D (Research and Development) to create a product that is safer, sustainable, energy efficient and less polluting. Alternatives to fuels like hydrogen cars, electric cars, compressed-air cars, etc are entering the market to give high mileage at low cost which is beneficial for owner of the car and environment too.

Latest technologies like BMW's Turbosteamer, Regenerative braking, Installation of Vortex is used which helps in saving energy and thus cost. To improve the quality and strength of automobiles, the auto manufacturers are replacing steel with materials like fiber glass, carbon nanotubes, duralumin and carbon fiber. Few other technologies like platoons, automated highway systems and vehicle infrastructure integration enhances road safety and traffic flow.

Automobile industry was deeply affected by the recession which recently occurred. However, it is reviving and it will soon come back to normal in the near future.

The Growth and Development of the Automobile Industry – A Deeper Insight

The word "Automobile" has its origins in Greek and Latin and it has become an integral part of every man's life. It has become so indispensable that on an average, a person spends at least 3 hours in his vehicle every day. Automobile was once thought of as a luxury and only a select few could indulge in. Now, the times have changed and automobiles have become a means of transportation catering to the vast majority.

The transformation from luxury to inevitability

Automobiles, in general, refer to the humble car and the estimates suggest that there is a car for every eleven persons on earth amounting up to 590 million passenger cars. There are various variants of automobiles that cater to every cross section of the population. There are variants that could set you back by a couple of million dollars and other models that cost you a few thousand dollars.

The technological advances in the automobile sector have been tremendous in the last 100 years. The century's greatest invention or advancement should definitely belong to the automobile industry. One of the earliest pioneers of the automobile industry was ransom olds from the oldsmobile factory. In the early 1900's, he introduced the Production Line concept, thus churning out vehicles every few minutes. This idea was greatly revolutionized and implemented by Henry Ford, who elevated automobile industry to the next level. Ford quickly grew in the first half of the 20th century and slowly but steadily spread globally.

Growing along with time

With advancement of age, the automobile industry gradually grew in continental Europe and England. Japan introduced quality initiatives that further enhanced the industry. Toyoto from Japan were the pioneers of Total Quality Management and Six Sigma, which have been the guiding principles of the automobile industry for the last 50 years. Today, Toyoto are the world's largest automobile company according to recent market estimates.

The global boom of the 1980's was largely because of the automobile revolution. Ford, General Motors and Chrysler, the big 3 automotive giants of America, had a huge say on the country's economy. They decided the health of the economy and the recent global economic recession has affected them badly. This has made them approach the government for loans and benefits, which have been fulfilled by the government after placing appropriate clauses.

Advent of technology and innovations

Automobile has transcended from being a medium of transportation to a medium of entertainment after the advent of super fast cars competing against each other. NASCAR and F1 races are huge crowd pullers every year. People have made fortunes and drivers of these machines have made their name in history. The fact that automobile racing involves huge costs has made the racing industry reel in these uncertain economic times. The sport has seen tragedies with loss of life in some instances. This has made room for strict safety regulations, which are now mandatory for all the automobile shows.

The negative part

Although man has made a huge leap forward with automobiles, there is a downside to this technological wonder. The emissions from these machines have raised serious environmental concerns with calls for more eco-friendly vehicles. Automobile companies have invested hugely in research and development of eco-friendly vehicles. Except for this single downside, there is slightest of doubts to say that automobiles have been the find of the previous century.

Trains, Planes Or Automobiles

With the population of the world growing at a steady pace, the governments of various countries are doing their best to provide their people with easy modes of transportation. Today, one can travel across the world easily and at relatively inexpensive rates. All three modes of travelling, including trains, airplanes and automobiles each have their own importance.

Automobiles are best for cities and towns. A journey of ten or twenty miles is an everyday affair for most people and in order to save money, people travel by buses or their own vehicles. A major part of the population travel by bus in many countries. Bus fares are cheap and a large number of buses operate in heavily traveled areas. It is usually easy to find a bus traveling to and from your part of town and a large number of people travel by bus when going to work and even school.

Cars give you the flexibility to manage things according to you. You are not dependent on the timing of the public transport and if you have a job that requires you to make a lot of adjustment in your daily schedule then a private vehicle is perhaps the best choice for you.

In order to travel larger distances, many people use trains. Trains are perhaps the most common mode of travelling for people who have to cover a fair bit of distance to get to their workplaces or offices. Similarly, trains are very useful if you wish to travel from one city to another. The rates are affordable and trains offer a comfortable journey.

In order to travel within the country, one can also get an airplane ticket but the prices are always more expensive than that of other modes of travel. However, with the present economic conditions, the prices of some airfares have been slashed to an affordable amount and some flights are available at cheap rates. Flights are the best option in case of emergencies as well. Flights connecting different cities reach their destination in a few hours. You might have to travel for a day in a train to get to the same destination but flights get you to the destination in just a few hours.

If you are looking to travel to another country, then in most cases you have no other option but to travel by air. One can also travel by a ship, but fares for a cruise are often expensive and the services are restricted to only a few ports around the world. The bottom line is that the mode of transportation that you should choose depends on the distance you have to travel.

Toyota dealers have a full line of dependable vehicles. An automobile is a motor vehicle, the aim of which is to transport passengers from one place to another. They are run on roads, and at maximum, have seats for around eight people. At the moment, there are around 600 million cars worldwide. It is one of the major forms of transportation, and possesses the latest forms of technology in its design.

A lot of automobile companies exist. The following are some of the most popular European automobile brands:

Rolls-Royce

Rolls-Royce is a British manufacturer, which specializes in luxury cars. It is one of the leading car companies in the production of luxury cars and manufactures high quality cars. Its quality and popularity can be figured out from the fact that its first production, Silver Ghost, produced in 1907, is still used in charity drives and special events.

Chery Automobiles: China's Auto War Begins

China is laying plans at this very moment to begin shipment of passenger vehicles to the North American market by mid 2007. Chinese automobile manufacturer, Chery, yes read that again … the company sounds strangely like Chevy, is looking at bringing not just one , but a whole fleet of low cost production vehicles to our shores. Proposed prices will astound you and could potentially bring the US auto market to its knees. Don't think for even one moment that Japanese and Korean automakers will be immune from this flood of low cost cars. Chery vehicles have been designed – some say stolen – from current Asian models and will compete directly against the likes of Toyota, Honda, Nissan, and Hyundai. China's long awaited war with the US – at one time expected to begin with a Red Army attack on Taiwan – may be fought on an economic front instead.

Chery, a state-owned car producer formed in China's eastern Anhui Province, is currently building a number of cars in China including the QQ – a compact car strangely similar to the Daewoo Spark [GM 'Korean division], as well as several sedans and a compact SUV. Indeed, recent charges made by Toyota, GM, and Honda have all alleged that Chery mimicked or outright stole designs from at least one of each automaker's vehicles including the Honda CR-V. For the record, the Toyota case was rejected, Honda is still attempting to work out a solution with their case, and GM recently dropped its suit after the Chinese automaker agreed not to sell their cars in the US under the Chery name which GM has stated is too close to the Chevy name. Chinese courts have also ruled that the Daewoo Spark design was not registered in China, so GM dropped its suit.

At present, the Chery vehicle line up includes the tiny QQ; a compact SUV built jointly with Mitsubishi called the Tiggo; and three sedans: the Oriental Son, the Flagcloud, and the Windcloud. Recently, Chery unveiled a newly designed crossover vehicle along the lines of the Chrysler Pacifica. With an introductory MSRP of under $ 20,000 the Chery crossover will seat up to seven passengers and come equipped with both four and six cylinder engines. As you might guess the Chery crossover, if equipped similarly to the Pacifica, could be priced some ten thousand dollars less than the Chrysler model.

Current prices on the other models have not yet been set, but published reports this past summer indicated that a basic Chery could retail for as low as $ 6995 in the US, which would be some three thousand dollars less than the next lowest priced car, the Chevy Aveo [from GM's Daewoo unit, naturally]. Of course, this particular pricing strategy has raised all sorts of alarms within the automobile industry, chiefly how to counter a flood of low cost cars invading the US market. As some have pointed out, much like Hyundai's introduction to the North America market during the 1980s, the Chinese cars are expected to initially have only a limited appeal primarily due to expected low quality levels. Still, it only took Hyundai less than one decade to begin to produce cars which consistently matched the quality levels of many American and Asian models. So, it could be just a matter of a few years before Chinese cars receive the positive press now given to many other Asian automakers, resulting in a sharp surge in sales.

While the Chery dealer network within the US has yet to be established, it is under development; a limited version of the dealer network is expected to be in place by Summer 2007 when the first Chinese vehicles arrive. A rapid expansion of this same network across the US and Canada has been planned over the ensuing years and although the Chery name will not be used in the US, you can expect that whatever name is selected these cars will impact the way many Americans buy their cars from that point forward. Oh, by the way, two other Chinese automakers – Shuanghuan Automobile Manufacturing, LTD and Geely Automotive – are also expected to export cars to the North American market soon after Chery makes its debut.

While it is too early to say, the opening of the lucrative North American automobile market to cheap Chinese vehicles could possibly shake the American economy in ways never anticipated. I, for one, shudder to think just how all of this might unfold.

Exporting Automobiles From the United States

The procedure of exporting an automobile from the United States is not a complicated process; However, there are requirements that must be fulfilled for car export. In order to export cars from the United States to other countries, the exporter must be able to provide documentation that proves the ownership of the vehicle. In most cases, this will be the certificate of title of the vehicle. The exporter must present ownership documentation to the US Customs either by certified copy of the original ownership documents or the original documents themselves.

When exporting a vehicle through a land border port, the car exporter must provide the port with ownership documents at least three days in advance of the car export. On the day in which the vehicle is to be exported US Customs will require that you present the vehicle to them so that they will be able to verify that the vehicle is indeed the vehicle that is described in the ownership documents.

For car exporters exporting vehicles via ship or plane, it is necessary to present the ownership documents at least 72 hours before lading to US Customs. The vehicle will then be subject to Customs inspection.

Once US Customs has verified that the vehicle is the vehicle described in the ownership papers and inspected the vehicle it will then be authorized for car export.

While the process is not complicated, requirements must be followed carefully. And, for any car exporters that fail to follow the requirements and meet the compliance outlined by the US Customs a non-compliance penalty may be imposed. Non-compliance penalties ranges from $ 500 to $ 10,000 dollars.So it definitely worth following the rules.
