First gaining popularity in East Asia in the late 1990s, K-pop entered the Japanese music market towards the turn of the 21st century. In the late 2000s, it grew from a musical genre into a subculture among teenagers and young adults of East and Southeast Asia. Currently, the spread of K-pop to other regions of the world, via the Korean wave, is most clearly seen in parts of Latin America, Northeast India, the Middle East, North Africa, and immigrant enclaves of the Western world Whobet JukeBox

Index= 44 Title=BlackBerry Cell Phones In the hunt for a new BlackBerry smartphone, but the 9900/9930, 9810, and 9850/9860 just don't quite fit your needs? Perhaps the new Curve 9350/9360/9370 will be up your alley. RIM revealed the newest member of the Curve family late last night, promising that they'll be launching in Canada this month and arriving in other countries in September. Spec-wise you're looking at a 2.44-inch 480x360 HVGA+ display, 800MHz processor, 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, VGA video capture, 512MB RAM, 512MB built-in storage (1GB for the 9370), 1000mAh battery, NFC, and BlackBerry 7. And just in case you were wondering, the 9350 is CDMA-only, the 9360 is a GSM device, and the 9370 packs both GSM and CDMA into its small frame. There's nothing terribly surprising to be found with these new Curves since we've known about the devices since way back in January, but hey, it's always good to see a leaked handset made official. As for when we can expect to see the 9350/9360/9370 stateside, we've heard that T-Mobile may be launching the device at the tail end of this month or the beginning of next month, while Sprint may be expecting it on September 9th. No word yet on potential Verizon and AT&T launches. Considering that both carriers have released several other Curve models in the past, though, I'm sure we'll be seeing these new devices hit the nation's two biggest carriers at some point. RIM Introduces New BlackBerry Curve Smartphones Sleek, fast and easy-to-use smartphones feature next-generation BlackBerry 7 OS and deliver smooth social experiences wherever you go Waterloo, ON - Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ: RIMM; TSX: RIM) today announced three new BlackBerry® smartphones featuring the BlackBerry® 7 Operating System (OS). The all-new BlackBerry® Curve™ 9350, BlackBerry® Curve™ 9360 and BlackBerry Curve™ 9370 smartphone are exciting additions to the popular BlackBerry Curve series. These new models are designed to address a large and important segment of the global mobile phone market where customers are looking to upgrade their existing feature phone or existing BlackBerry Curve with an affordable, easy-to-use, full-featured and socially-connected smartphone. “These new models will build on the incredible success of the BlackBerry Curve line and further expand the largest global launch of BlackBerry smartphones in our history,” said Mike Lazaridis, President and Co-CEO at Research In Motion. “The new BlackBerry Curve smartphones are absolutely stunning and offer a significant performance upgrade with an unmatched mobile social experience for the millions of feature phone users in the market as well as our existing Curve customers.” Everything You Need The new BlackBerry Curve smartphones are slim, stylish and simply beautiful.

GPS and Wi-Fi® support are also included, as well as a 5MP camera with flash and video recording so that memories can be captured and instantly shared on social networks. The microSD/SDHC slot supports up to 32 GB memory cards for additional media storage. In addition to supporting the new BlackBerry 7 OS, the new BlackBerry Curve smartphones feature a range of powerful hardware enhancements including upgraded processors, displays and memory, and built-in support for NFC (Near Field Communications), a new technology that is enabling many exciting capabilities, including the ability to pair accessories or read SmartPoster tags with a simple tap of the smartphone. Next-Generation BlackBerry 7 OS BlackBerry 7 introduces a next generation BlackBerry browser which combines the dramatically improved performance of the advanced WebKit browser engine with the hardware enhancements in the new BlackBerry Curve smartphones to deliver a significantly faster, more fluid web browsing experience. Additional enhancements to this next generation BlackBerry browser have also enabled smoother navigation and optimized HTML5 performance for incredible gaming and video experiences. BlackBerry 7 OS also includes a number of other pre-loaded applications and integrated functionality for increased productivity and collaboration right out of the box. The Premium version of Documents To Go is included free of charge, offering users powerful document editing features as well as a native PDF document viewer. BlackBerry® Protect is also pre-loaded*, offering customers the peace of mind that personal data can be backed up and secured in the cloud. With BlackBerry Protect, users can locate their misplaced BlackBerry smartphone using GPS or remotely turn up the ringer for an audible notification if their handset is close-by. BlackBerry® Balance (announced May 2, 2011) is integrated in BlackBerry 7, allowing users to enjoy the full BlackBerry smartphone experience for both work and personal purposes without compromising the IT department’s need for advanced security and IT controls. The popular universal search capability has also been enhanced with support for voice-activated search, so users can now simply speak to begin searching their device and the web for information. Best In Class Communications and Social Experiences The next generation BlackBerry Curve smartphones deliver the world’s best mobile communications and social experiences with a highly refined and integrated suite of phone, email, messaging and social apps to keep users connected and productive throughout the day. The latest release of BBM™ (BlackBerry® Messenger) is pre-loaded and now extends the real time BBM experience to a range of other apps, such as Foursquare, allowing users to easily interact with each other from within the ‘BBM connected’ app (see separate announcement on July 28, 2011). The updated Social Feeds (2.0) app has been extended to capture updates from media, podcasts, and favorites all in one consolidated view. The new Facebook® for BlackBerry smartphones (2.0) app introduces features like Facebook chat and BBM integration that makes it easier for users to connect with their Facebook friends in real time utilizing push notifications. Twitter for BlackBerry smartphones also delivers a deeply integrated experience including use of real time push notifications and Social Feeds integration.

In the US, this requires four years of college, four years of medical school, one year general internship, three years of residency, then optional fellowship for 1 to 2 years (typically 12–14 years of education after high school). An ophthalmologist can perform all the tests an optometrist can and in addition is a fully qualified medical doctor and surgeon. Ophthalmologists undergo extensive and intensive medical and surgical exams to qualify and entrance criteria to a training program is highly competitive. Ophthalmic medical practitioner – A medical doctor (MD) who specializes in ophthalmic conditions but who has not completed a specialization in ophthalmology. Optometrist – A Doctor of Optometry (OD) treats eye diseases and disorders and specializes in optics and vision correction. Permissions granted by an optometric license vary by location: In the United States, the standard education is four years of college and four years of optometry school at an accredited Doctor of Optometry (OD) program. An additional one to two years of residency, fellowship and/or specialty training is required to qualify for certain positions. All optometry colleges in the U.S. currently provide training in the diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases and level 1[clarification needed] in office surgical procedures. In the United States, optometrists are defined as physicians under Medicare,[citation needed] but laws pertaining to optometry vary by state. All states allow treatment of eye diseases, including the use of topical pharmaceuticals (by properly licensed optometrists) 47 states allow prescription of oral medications to treat eye diseases Some states allow optometrists to perform injections in and around the eye Oklahoma and Kentucky allow optometrists to perform certain laser surgeries. Outside of the United States, optometrists are often limited in their use of pharmaceuticals. In most of these countries, optometry is either a 4 year or 5 year college degree and they are not classified as doctors (except in the Philippines). Orthoptist – Specializes in diagnosis and management of eye movement and coordination problems, misalignment of the visual axis, convergence and accommodation problems, and conditions such as amblyopia, stribisums, and binocular vision disorders, as outlined by the International Orthoptic Association. They may assist ophthalmologists in surgery, teach orthoptic students, students of other allied health professions, medical students, and ophthalmology residents and fellows, act as vision researchers, perform vision screening, perform low vision assessments and act as clinical administrators.[1] In many countries orthoptic education requires an undergraduate degree for program entry followed by a couple years of postgraduate studies in orthoptics In other countries orthoptics is offered as a Masters degree. Ocularist – Specialize in the fabrication and fitting of ocular prostheses for people who have lost eyes due to trauma or illness. Optician – Specializes in the fitting and fabrication of ophthalmic lenses, spectacles, contact lenses, low vision aids and ocular prosthetics. They may also be referred to as an "optical dispenser", "dispensing optician", "ophthalmic dispenser". The prescription for the corrective lenses must be supplied by an ophthalmologist, optometrist or in some countries an orthoptist. This is a regulated profession in most jurisdictions. Ophthalmic Medical Personnel – A collective term for allied health personnel in ophthalmology. It is often used to refer to specialized personnel (unlike ocularists or opticians). In many countries these allied personnel may just be known as an "ophthalmic assistant". Their training is usually combined with a two or three year applied science degree and they assist an ophthalmologist or orthoptist in the hospital or clinic with vision testing. In the USA the Joint Commission on Allied Health Personnel in Ophthalmology administers OMP certifications: Certified Ophthalmic Assistant (COA) – entry level Certified Ophthalmic Technician (COT) – intermediate level Certified Ophthalmic Medical Technologist (COMT) – advanced level a gross oversimplification, it can be said that ophthalmologists treat eye diseases while optometrists treat vision. This allows for considerable overlap in care because most eye diseases affect vision, and many problems with vision are signs of disease. Laws regarding licensure vary by location, but typically ophthalmologists are licensed to provide the same care as an optometrist, with the addition of surgical options. In most locations surgery is the biggest difference between the two professions. Optometrists frequently refer patients to ophthalmologists when the condition requires surgery or intraocular injection. Historically, ophthalmology has developed as a specialization of medical doctors while optometry originated as a profession that fitted people with glasses. As of 2012, this difference has decreased as the majority of optometrists screen for and treat eye disease and many ophthalmologists fit people with corrective lenses. This difference in background previously caused some conflict between the two professions. Ophthalmologists have voiced concern that an optometrist's educational background is different from their own. Optometrists have criticized ophthalmologists of caring for the health structure of the eye while letting other vision disorders go untreated. For example, consider a patient with glaucoma and spasm of accommodation. Ophthalmologists would be concerned that an optometrist would fail to identify or otherwise mistreat the glaucoma. Optometrist would worry that the ophthalmologist would fail to identify or mistreat the spasm of accommodation. As of 2012, both these concerns are invalid because t he education of both types of professionals prepares them to handle both conditions. (This may not be true outside of the United States.) Because of cooperation between optometrists and ophthalmologists, the quality of care depends more on the abilities of the individual doctors than it does what type of professional they are. Orthoptists specialize in the diagnosis and management of problems with eye movement and coordination, such as misalignment of the visual axis, binocular vision problems, and pre/post surgical care of strabismus patients. They do not directly treat ocular disease with medications or surgery. Orthoptists treat patients using optical aids and eye exercises[7] and primarily work alongside doctors to co-manage binocular vision treatment, but also often do eye and vision testing. All three types of professional perform screenings for common ocular problems affecting children (such as amblyopia and strabismus) and adults (such as cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy).[8] All are required to participate in ongoing continuing education courses to maintain licensure and stay current on the latest standards of care. hat is an Ophthalmologist? An ophthalmologist is a medical doctor who has undertaken additional specialist training in the diagnosis and management of disorders of the eye and visual system. Ophthalmology training equips eye specialists to provide the full spectrum of eye care, including the prescription of glasses and contact lenses, medical treatment and complex microsurgery. Many ophthalmologists are also involved in scientific research into causes and cures for eye diseases and vision problems. What is the difference between an ophthalmologist, optometrist and orthoptist? All are eye care professionals, but only an ophthalmologist is a medically trained specialist. Optometrists Optometrists examine eyes, give advice on visual problems, and prescribe and fit glasses or contact lenses. If eye disease is detected, an optometrist will refer patients to an ophthalmologist for further management. In certain circumstances, ophthalmologists and optometrists work collaboratively in the care of patients, especially those with chronic eye diseases. The typical training for an optometrist in Australia and New Zealand includes: • 5 years at university leading to a degree in optometry. • 1 year of pre-registration experience. Orthoptists Orthoptists are allied health professionals who are trained to diagnose and manage disorders of eye movements and associated vision problems. They are also trained to perform investigative testing of eye diseases. They work in a diverse range of settings, including hospitals, private practices, low vision and rehabilitation settings and research centres. Orthoptic training is undertaken in a 4 year Bachelor of Health Sciences/ Master of Orthoptics university degree. What is the purpose of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists? RANZCO is the professional body for ophthalmologists and is responsible for developing and maintaining standards in ophthalmology training and practice. The activities of the College include: • RANZCO is not a regulatory body; it does not have a role in disciplinary actions and is unable to act on complaints about individual doctors. This is the responsibility of the Australian Health Practitioner Regulatory Authority (AHPRA) in Australia and the Medical Council of New Zealand (MCNZ) in New Zealand. AHPRA and MCNZ hold the central registers of doctors' qualifications, including the specialist register in Australia and the vocational register in New Zealand. The specialist or vocational register lists doctors who have completed specialist training, including surgical training.
