A bold and fearless woman

Jui Chiung Tom, known to friends and family as Ruby, passed away peacefully on October 16 at the Quarry Hill retirement home in Camden, Maine. She was 85. A native of Kunming, China, she came to the U.S. as a foreign student. She was the first Chinese coed to ever attend Arkansas College, where her American classmates dubbed her "Ruby" because they found her Chinese name impossible to pronounce. She planned to return to China, but the Chinese Revolution cut off her hopes of going home. From afar, through an exchange of carefully worded letters, she learned of the hardships suffered by her parents, whose large estate in Kunming was confiscated by the government. She never saw her parents again.

After her marriage to Ernest B. Tom, Ruby settled in San Diego, where her difficulties as an immigrant inspired her to help other Chinese immigrants. Even while busily raising two children, she managed to earn a Master's degree in Social Services at San Diego State University. In 1972 she co-founded the Chinese Social Service Center, now known as the San Diego Chinese Center. 39 years later, the organization she created continues to provide social services and cultural programs for the San Diego community.

With the re-opening of China to tourists, Ruby was finally able to visit her homeland several times, and she was delighted to meet nieces she'd never seen. A fearless traveler, she often made bold and surprising choices in life -- including a decision to get divorced after 32 years of marriage and live by her own rules. After moving to Maine in 2008, she settled in at Quarry Hill, where the extraordinary and compassionate care of the nursing staff eased her final days.

She is survived by her daughter, novelist Terry (Tess) Gerritsen of Camden, Maine, her son Dr. Timothy Tom, an anesthesiologist in Corpus Christi, Texas, and her grandsons Adam and Joshua Gerritsen, and Christopher Tom. In lieu of flowers, the family would deeply appreciate donations to the American Heart Association (http://honor.americanheart.org/goto/Ruby.Tom), which has a memorial web page for her.

Binaries are also known as all-or-nothing options, digital options, or Fixed Return Options (FROs), each name stressing the 0-1 nature of the options. This is because there are two possible outcomes to a binary option, both of which are understood by the investor prior to purchasing the option.

Novice traders find it difficult to decide which Forex trading club will be the best support for trading. There are many that you can join, but often, when you are just starting up you don't have a lot of extra cash to spend on memberships. And you can feel unsure about the clubs that are offered for free. Top clubs online right now include support clubs for the popular sellers FAPTurbo and Forex Megadroid, but you can also find clubs that are reviewing a wide range of competitors and even newly developed Forex software. How do you choose the one Forex club that is the best for you?

Taking a dip into the investing pool can be very exciting, just as it can also be very daunting and downright scary. An alternative to executing the binary trades yourself is to hire binary options brokers. There are many brokers in the industry ready to work with you and perform the trading tasks for you. But there is a catch, not all brokers are right for every investor.

People diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes can be susceptible to environmental stress. According to research reported on in March 2015 in the journal Environmental Health, individuals with diabetes need to be cautious during heat waves. Investigators at Umea University in Umea, Sweden, and Lazio Regional Health Service in Rome, Italy, studied the number of deaths in people over 50 years of age and went on to look at those over 50 with health problems. It was found individuals over aged 50, in general had a 22 percent higher risk of dying during heat waves than in lower temperatures. Type 2 diabetics over 50 had a 25 percent increase in deaths during Roman heat waves.

Some people think that the only way you can treat sweating is by going under the knife. However not too many people are keen on doing that. In reality, the best cures are under your roof.
