Visitors to Vietnam (most of them to Saigon) often caught Sore Throat infection. They would hear some claims by the mass that there are some outbreaks of throat infection by influenza virii. Actually there are no such outbreaks in influenza virii to cause such infection.

This is the story of my own search for the real reason for the claim that drinking cold drink with ice in Vietnam may cause a throat infection.

Sore throat infection from cold drinks with ice in Vietnam.

1. Having sore throat after having few drinks in Vietnam?

A tourist went out to have few glass of beers or cold drinks in the most expensive places in Vietnam and come back to his room with a sore throat infection. His friends tell him that everyone drinking cold drinks in Vietnam eventually gets an infection due to the cold drinks. Government Health Department has so many blunders that it has no more credibility to offer any recommendation. So the tourist may believe that his cold drinks may have caused his infection.

2. My search for the true cause of sore throat infection in Vietnam.

Ice makers in Vietnam are under some degree of control by the Vietnamese Health Department.

The beer and soft drink makers are also under some degree of control by the Vietnamese Health Department.

The drink glasses have been mostly cleaned and well washed.

So it was a puzzle to see why a tourist can catch a throat infection in an expensive reception or club.

3. Some investigative work is needed.

Paying attention on the way cold drinks are served in Vietnam brings out some UNSUAL activities: The waiters are always busy pulling out the ice cubes from guests’ glasses to replace them with bigger cubes: The partially dissolved cubes are pulled out of each glass by a pair of tongues. They are then placed in an ice bucket that carries all ice cubes, new and partially dissolved. The waiters then choose from those cubes one of the right size for dropping into the guest’s glass to make its liquid rise to the brim. The waiters want to make an image that the glasses of all guests are always full.

You should know by now why people consuming cold drinks with ice cubes have sore throat infection.

4 The most probable cause of throat infection for tourists to Vietnam

a/- Suppose that a guest has a throat infection.
b/- The pair of tongues that dip into his drink may carry some virus.
c/- His ice cubes may carry some virus.
d/- The ice bucket now spreads thw virus to all cubes.
e/- The pair of tongues and the ice cubes from the bucket carries virus to the guest being served.
f/- Every guest now equitably shared some virus.

5. Personal actions to avoid such throat infection.

a/- Whenever I needed a drink, I avoided their glasses, pair of tongues for ice and ice cubes by asking for a fridge cooled, sealed, pull-top can of drink. I would then personally wash its top in the toilet then bring it back to the table and open it, drinking the content directly from its opened top with a drink straw. I would then ask the waiters to give me privacy and keep away from me and my can of drink !

b/- If ice cubes are needed insist on obtaining them yourself directly from a sealed bag from a well known ice manufacturer and NOT PARTIALLY DISSOLVED cubes as the latter may come out of someone else’ glass. It is paradoxic that STREET VENDORS seem to ADHERE MORE to this rule for hygiene than expensive clubs and reception centers full of (wrongly trained) busy looking waiters.

c/- Observe strictly the rules of NOT SHARING EATING AND DRINKING CUTTLERY. This rule is observed rigorously in Western Countries and in Former (pre 1975) South Vietnam but it is NOT observed by people from former North Vietnam.

d/- The non-observance of this rule of NOT SHARING EATING AND DRINKING CUTTLERY now spreads to the majority of alcoholic drinkers in Vietnam. DO NOT share their glasses and avoid drinking with them.

Indian mariners had first use of magnetic navigational compasses.

Indian mariners had first use of magnetic navigational compasses.

by tonytran2015 (Melbourne, Australia).

(Blog No. 1xx).

The magnetic navigational compasses may have been first used by Indian people and may not have been first invented by Chinese people as often claimed.

#compass, #navigation, #lodestone, #Chinese compass, #Olmec magnetic, #Indian, #yantra, #matsya yantra, #maccha yantra,

Indian mariners had first use of magnetic navigational compasses.

1. Claims that China invented the compasses.

Wikipedia said that

“The first compasses were made of lodestone, a naturally magnetized ore of iron, in Han dynasty China between 300 and 200 BC.”[1]

The entry on Han Dynasty said that

“The Han dynasty (/hɑːn/; Chinese: 漢朝; pinyin: Hàn cháo) was the second imperial dynasty of China (206 BC–220 AD).” [2]

Figure: Han Dynasy, from https://commons.m.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Han_Dynasty_Plain_map.PNG#mw-jump-to-license

So the compasses are used in China after 206 BC, but it was initially only for geomancy.

“The magnetic compass was not, at first, used for navigation, but for geomancy and fortune-telling by the Chinese. The earliest Chinese magnetic compasses were possibly used to order and harmonize buildings in accordance with the geomantic principles of feng shui.” [1]

“The compass was later used for navigation by the Song Dynasty”[1]. (Song Dynasty: Chinese: 宋朝; pinyin: Sòng cháo; 960–1279)

So the written records on the use of compasses for navigation in China are made after year 960 CE.

Note that there were South-pointing chariots used in ancient China before year 235 CE [2b, 2c, 2d] but their operation was not based on magnetism. Their operation relied on the differential between the numbers of rotations of the left and right wheels (of same size) of each chariot to give its total yawing angle since departure.

Those chariots may have even been “first constructed by the Duke of Zhou (beginning of the 1st millennium BC) as a means of conducting homewards certain envoys who had arrived from a great distance beyond the frontiers.” [2b].

2. Appropriate places to look for records.

Many people look for easily read records. China certainly has many records which have been translated into English and are easily understood by readers in the World.

However, China is a land conquering empire, requiring little use of compasses while India is a sea faring trading empire which may benefit a lot from compasses. The logical place to look for records of first use of navigational compasses should therefore be India, an outreaching seafaring trading empire (as necessity is the mother of inventions). Indian influence is obvious over the vast area of Indian Ocean, Polynesian nations and (mostly South) Pacific Ocean [2e].

Any discovery of earlier use of magnetic navigational compass predating Chinese use should not surprise/disappoint investigators as the people of the trading Olmec nation (on the side of the Gulf of Mexico) has even used lodestones, hematite, magnetite since 1500 BC, one thousand year before any record of Chinese first use of lodestones [3], [4].

It is to be noted that China is on the East of India while Arab countries, Spain, Olmec are spread to its West.

3. Many evidences pointing to ancient use of compasses by Indian people .

The literature of the out reaching, sea faring nation India have many evidence to support its first use of the magnetic navigation compass.

“The compass was first used in India, around 1800 BC, for Navigational purposes and was known as “Matsya yantra” (which roughly translates to fish machine) because of the placement of a metallic fish in a cup of oil.” [5]

However, no evidence have been given in [5] to support the claim of “around 1800 BC”.

Reference [6] stated that
“In the Tamil nautical books, the use of compass is mentioned in the fourth century BC”,

4. Evidence on knowledge of magnetic attraction by Indian people since 500BC.

K. V. Ramakrishna Rao [7] pointed out that:

In Vedas, there is reference to “ayas” implying Iron and “Akarshan” attaction, thus, pointing to Iron-magnet relationship.[7]

Kanada (c.550 BCE) mentions about a needle that moves towards a magnet as –

“Manigamanam sucyabhi sarpanam drastakaranam” (Kanadasutra.V.I.15). In the commentary called the Upaskara, the passage has been clearly explained to signify that the needle goes towards the magnet.[7]. (Wikipedia [8] stated that Kanada was estimated to live between 6th and 2nd century BC.)

Kalidasa (c.500 BCE) records: “Siva’s mind has been fixed steadily because of penance. And therefore, now try to distract his attention just like an iron piece is attracted or drawn towards a magnet (ayaskantena lohavat akarshtum)” (Kumarasambavam.II.59).“[7]

The date of 500 BCE assigned for Kalidasa quoted by [7] may be in error. Wikipedia [9] stated that Kalidasa’s works cannot be dated with precision, but they were most likely authored within the 4th-5th century CE. In any event, it is not important, only the date of 550BCE assigned to Kanada is pivotal to the thesis of this article.

5. Evidence on compass use by Indian people since 500CE.

Milindapanho (VII.2.16) composed during 4th-5th centuries CE, mentions about an instrument used by the pilot of a ship for steering the ship.

“And again, O King, as the pilot put a seal on the steering apparatus, lest any one should touch it”.
“[7]

Rhys Davis translates the term as “steering apparatus” and it Sanskrit it is “yantra”, a mechanical devise, just like “matsya yantra” working on mechanical and accompanied with other principles.[7]

Mookerji points out a compass on one of the ships in which Hindus of the early Christian era sailed out to colonize Java and other islands in the Indian ocean. The Hindu compass was an iron fish (called in Sanskrit matsya-yantra or fish machine). It floated in a vessel of oil and point to the north (History of Indian Shipping, London, 1912) [7].

The following is what Mr. J.L. Reid, who was a member of the Institute of Naval Architects and Shipbuilders in England, has said in the Bombay Gazetteer, vol. xiii., Part ii., Appendix A.

“The early Hindu astrologers are said to have used the magnet, in fixing the North and East, in laying foundations, and other religious ceremonies. The Hindu compass was an iron fish that floated in a vessel of oil and pointed to the North. The fact of this older Hindu compass seems placed beyond doubt by the Sanskrit word Maccha Yantra, or fish machine, which Molesworth gives as a name for the mariner’s compass”. [10]

6. Conclusions

The thesis of this article is Indian mariners have already used magnetic navigation compass at least since 500 CE while Chinese had recorded usage of them only after 900 CE, a long four hundred years later.

It appears that the out reaching Indian seafarers had the first use of magnetic navigational compasses. Since necessity is the mother of inventions, it is natural to expect this as India had been an ancient seafaring trading nation.

The Parasites of Western Economy, Part 10: Greedy politicians overpaid with our tax money.

The Parasites of Western Economy, Part 10: Greedy politicians overpaid with our tax money.

by tonytran2015 (Melbourne, Australia).

(Blog No. 1xx).

A nation is built up by people with the same purpose, espousing same values in life. They stake a territory, protect its border, set up rules to operate the nation to their desired aims. It has happened many times in the past, some strong group of people may organize themselves to capture the ruling positions of the nation through violence or through terrorizing the population.

To avoid recurrence of violence and terror accompanying each regime change, most Western, truely democratic, nations now have decided to have their sets of rules above any rulers and call those rules the Constitution of the Nation.

The rulers of each nation are required to uphold its Constitution to every of its letters. The Constitution also specifies who are the citizens of the nation and how the rulers are elected by the citizens of the nation. Only such elected rulers are called constitutionally legitimate representatives and only them can form and operate the government.

#parasite, #government, #politician, #entitlement, #pension, #abuse, #elected office, #tax money,

The Parasites of Western Economy, Part 10: Greedy politicians overpaid with our tax money.

1. Protectors of Constitutions turning into abusers.

Few countries anticipated that it is their own elected representatives that would become corrupt and manipulate the system to entrench themselves with privileges and benefits not envisaged by the authors of their Constitutions.

Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
Lord Acton

Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely, and I found that out when I was Attorney General in Massachusetts.
Edward Brooke

It is said that power corrupts, but actually it’s more true that power attracts the corruptible. The sane are usually attracted by other things than power.
David Brin

2. Representatives of each nation abuse the trust of their electors and exploit every loopholes in their respective national constitution to entrench their own priviledge.

Most national constitutions do not specify the setting for entitlements of elected representatives or the methods to prevent them getting rich at the expense their nations.

So the representatives increase their own salaries, eligibility, trade favours to their future donors/employers and can even set up their (Clintons styled) Foundations to pressure constituents and those to be affected by their decisions to donate to their foundations !

3. Shameless calls for acceptance of dual citizenship for parliamentarians.

Some Politicians even make shameless proposal for acceptance of Dual Citizenship for Parliament Representative. The advocates may have thought that citizens were fools [1-9].

Australia bans it, Israel bans it, Russia bans it, these economically small countries are doing well. On the other hand, after the failure by Nixon’s administration in US courts to ban dual citizenship in USA [10., 14], that once great country is now heading for trouble. Dannish people are not impressed with USA [15].

4. Travel for serving politicians.

Politicians really enjoy having their travel paid by tax payers Some have his dogs driven around by government cars [15, 16]. Some enjoys helicopter rides [17-22]. Any Australian senator is allowed to net $1040 a week from the excess allowance, supplementing his/her base salary of $199,040, The Daily Telegraph reported [21b].

5. Hush money for sexual misconducts by politicians.

Politicians can even have funds for hush money [23-26]!

6. Lifetime travel for retired Australian politicians axed by Prime Minister Turnbull.

Current Australian Prime Minister Malcome Turnbull is now much hated by Australian politicians for axing their Lifetime Gold Pass for travel. Turnbull is thus a PM who wants to lead by examples. Australians should salute him [27-29].

7. Politicians with questionable campaign money.

Australian MP Dastyari does not think that his campaign fund is contributed by a foreigner [30-32]! Victorian (Australia) State Premier D. Andrew does not think that there is a problem of MP on his side campaigned with tax money [33-35]!

8. Former Prime Ministers using “Former PM” priviledge while working for foreign governments/companies.

There is nothing wrong with a former PM of a country who subsequently wants to work for another country but he should relinquish all priviledge granted to a former PM to save the dignity of the first country. It looks terrible for the first country if its former PM lined up and queue for favor from any other country [36-46].

9. Huge pensions for politicians

UK politicians extort huge pensions on tax payers [47]. Australian politicians require ordinary male working people to work until they get 70 years old before they get entitled to their pension payments. On the other hand, Australian politicians only need to serve 2 elected terms to be entitled for their life pension after turning 55 after finishing the second elected term [48].

10. The ultimate safeguard for American system.

American system has placed an ultimate safeguard against abuse by rulers in its Second Amendment to its Constitution. It is to be used as a guarantee for the ultimate revolt against oppressive government:

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. “

This is to prevent the ruling government plus congress of the day from walking into the lounge rooms of Americans and impose a tea tax. However, even this 2nd Amendment is now under constant attack by the elected democratic representatives in their quest for absolute powers and own entrenchment.

11. Conclusions.

Every citizen has to be vigilant and be active in politics. Only by doing so he can avoid being a tax donkey provider for those unhelpful politicians who turn tax money into honey pots for their greedy ones.

It is also now a question whether people with no net contribution to the economy should be allowed to stand for elected office?

Do you think that when I or any other senator makes a political speech, has it printed, should charge the printing of that speech and the mailing of that speech to the taxpayers? Do you think, for example, when I or any other Senator makes a trip to his home State to make a purely political speech that the cost of that trip should be charged to the taxpayers? Do you think when a Senator makes political broadcasts or political television broadcasts, radio or television, that the expense of those broadcasts should be charged to the taxpayers? Well I know what your answer is. It’s the same answer that audiences give me whenever I discuss this particular problem: The answer is no. The taxpayers shouldn’t be required to finance items which are not official business but which are primarily political business.[51]

Trade war tactics, Part 6: Using gold based trading and refusing opponent’s currency.

Trade war tactics, Part 6: Using gold based trading and refusing opponent’s currency.

by tonytran2015 (Melbourne, Australia).

(Blog No. 1xx).

A trade war combatant may have to weaken and destabilize its opponent by refusing both to accept or to hold the currency of that country. That refusal is a defensive move and it may start snowballing into an international refusal of that currency beyond its national border. This will create additional problems and costs to the economy of the opponent country.

#trade war, #de-internationalize, #national currency, #gold currency, #dollar,

Trade war tactics, Part 6: Using gold based trading and refusing opponent’s currency.

1. Refusal to hold opponent’s currency is defensive.

It is very risky for one trade war combatant country to hold the currency of its opponent.

The simple basis for citizens accepting the fiat money of their own country is that those who had done works for the government have the fiat money (a form of certificates) and the population at large have to exchange goods and service for those certificates to pay their own tax (those who don’t pay will be jailed) and buy some goods or service from the government. [1,2]

So why should any non-citizen not living in that country accept the fiat money from that government? Especially any sovereign country should not hold fiat currency of any of its trade war opponents. Doing so is very risky for the following reasons:

a- The country issuing fiat money may require all holders of its fiat money to switch to new versions within 48 hours at the banks. This will invalidate any old version of fiat money held outside its territory or inside its territory but without adequate documentations proving the legality of its possession. This has recently been carried out in India. [3]

b- The country issuing fiat money may intentionally dilute the value of the money to reduce the entitlement of foreign countries with large holding of its fiat currency.

For example, let a country C hold USD 1,200bn worth of fiat currency of another country A [4,5,6] while the current GDP of country A is worth USD 19,000bn [7]. In this example, country A owes (1200/19000) of its GDP to country C.

If country A decided to give one bonus dollar to every dollar currently held inside the country by its citizens then after this issuance A would owe C only (1200/(2*19000)) of its GDP ! (This is a standard technique of stock market, called “shares dilution”.)

So holding a large amount of foreign currency always carry with it some risk. Trade war combatants should not hold large amount of opponent’s currency (or treasury notes, which are equivalent to “currency in the coming years”). Although France and USA were not in trade war at the time, French President Charles De Gaulle demanded that the US ship back their dollars in converted gold to France [8] and subsequently many other countries followed France’s example, leading to the US abolishing the gold base for its US dollars [9].

2. Refusing a national currency reduces its base and its perceived stability.

When US dollars are not held in the central banks of other countries there will be less demand of US dollars and there will be less US dollars in circulation.

As there are less dollars in circulation their values will be more sensitive to inflation or deficit figures from US treasury and government.

Knowing this, China is trying to establish its gold and oil backed yuan. [10-11]

3. Returning to gold or commodity certificates

To be safe, each country should not hold much fiat currency of any other country. Any country which has large holding of fiat currency of another country has to divest that amount. The problem is more urgent if that country hold the fiat currency of its opponent [12-15].

The problem is even worse for opponents of USA in its economic war when the Bank for International Settlement is involved in the processing to transfer US dollars to countries on USA’s sanction list [16-18].

The inevitable solution to international trading is an obvious old method used by the USSR: All trades are to be settled in gold !

4. Conclusion.

The current trade war will lead to the de-internationalization of US dollars and gold will have to be again used as an international trading medium that is free of manipulation.

Who Survived More Lightning Strikes, Roy Sullivan or Melvin Roberts?

True Strange Library

Today’s stop on our world tour of true strange stuff: two “human lightning rods.” The first isRoy Sullivan, a bear smacking park ranger who survived being struck by lightning seven times. Who else ever (quite reasonably) kept a bucket of water handy in his truck for when his hair caught on fire?


Roy Cleveland Sullivan (February 7, 1912 – September 28, 1983) was a United States park ranger in Shenandoah National Park in Virginia. Between 1942 and 1977, Sullivan was hit by lightning on seven different occasions and survived all of them. For this reason, he gained a nickname “Human Lightning Conductor” and “Human Lightning Rod”. Sullivan is recognized by Guinness World Records as the person struck by lightning more recorded times than any other human being.In [a] photo of him … a prominent burn mark is visible on his ranger hat.

Vietnamese Buddhism has been strongly against eating dogs.

Vietnamese Buddhism has been strongly against eating dogs.

#dog meat, #Buddhism, #Vu Lan festival,

The full moon of the 7th East Asian Lunar month (That is the full Moon closest to 22nd of August) is the date for East Asian Buddhist people to go to pagodas to pray for their parents.

In the many religious stories for recital by these Buddhist people, there is a story of “Mục Liên Thanh Đề” carrying a stern warning against eating dog meat:

Once there was a lady named Thanh Đề. One of her misdeed was to feed the monks with dog meat [1].

“Thanh Đề was the mother of Mục Kiền Liên (also called Mục Liên). She was greedy, evil, not believing in the Three Jewels of Buddhism (Tam Bao in Vietnamese), committed serious sins, sowing so many “bad seeds” (of the theory of Karma). Therefore when she died she had to harvest the “fruits of her misdeed”,and was banished to hell, becoming a detainee of hell, suffering constant hunger and thirst.

On the other hand, Mục Kiền Liên has become one of the ten great disciples of the Buddha, who is preeminent with possessing miracles. One day Mục Kiền Liên used his newly attained miracle ability of observing the whole world and suddenly found his mother was constantly suffering hunger and various forms of torture in hell. He decided to offer rice to his mother. Since the misdeed in the past still lingered on, when his mother put rice into her mouth, the rice suddenly became hot charcoal, she had no rice to eat.” [2]

42,000-year-old worms revived from Siberian permafrost

Lives from different periods of time can intermingle. How can you be sure that you are older than all the worms around you ?

Centinel2012

Well, it looks like you can’t just freeze politicians and end their reign of terror. It turns out, they might still be thawed out 42,000 years later beginning again. The latest biology news was reported in Germany in grenzwissenschaft-aktuell.de. A 42,000-year-old soil sample from Siberian permafrost contained nematodes. It was thawed and the soil contained worms which were brought back to life. This amazing event set the biology record for the period of time over which higher organisms can survive in cryogenic sleep. They reported that the worms began to move within a few weeks at 20 degrees Celsius in the Moscow laboratories and began to eat food.

There are two species of worm that have been discovered. Panagrolaimus nematodes have been revived which date back 32,000 years and were located at about 3.0 meters down. The Plectus worms were discovered…

The abuse of health care system by some immigrants in Australia.

The abuse of health care system by some immigrants in Australia.

by tonytran2015 (Melbourne, Australia).

Click here for a full, up to date ORIGINAL ARTICLE and to help fighting the stealing of readers’ traffic.

(Blog No. … ).

This blog aims to bring to light the reasons for higher than normal per capita cost of health care for immigrants. This higher than normal cost is caused by the attitude of immigrant patients as well as immigrant health care providers. The higher than normal cost should be noted in any budgeting by any government working with a migrant population.

This blog gives my first hand observation and the details drawn from my conversations with some people of immigrant communities.

#migrant, #immigrant, #immigration, #give-me-gration, #Australia, #health case, #abuse, #unnecessary medical check up

The abuse of health care system by some immigrants in Australia.

1. The cost overrun in health care.

Australia has been a lucky country with large areas for agriculture and fishery, abundance of minerals for extraction, small population to divide the benefits but the country has been crying poor [1-2g]. The cause for this is MISMANAGEMENTS in many fields, with abuse to health care service (at 9.5% of GDP in 2011–12, “was slightly above average compared with other OECD countries” [9] while “It was also noted that Aboriginal Australian and Torres Strait Islander peoples experienced worse health than non-Indigenous Australians” [10]) the most easily seen.

2. Incorrect attitude from some migrants.

When a country such as Australia accept new immigrants, the country requires the contribution from the new prospective citizens. However, due to some reasons, many immigrants to Australia have the following incorrect attitude which is detrimental to the country:

-Some immigrants think that the country only needs to increase its counting of heads of its citizens like counting the number of soldiers before a battle.

-Some immigrants think that Immigration only means GIVE-ME-gration. They think that the country has too much money and is in urgent need to spend the money before it got crushed to death by the weight of its gold. The reality is the country has spent too much on migrants that there is inadequate care for its existing and retired workers who had contributed to the building up of the country. So the country has been blamed as breaking the moral contract with its existing citizens and with its indigenous, Aboriginal “First Australians” [2].

-Some immigrants think that they can channel the wealth of the host country to their former countries. They cannot tell where to draw the line between what the host country can do for them and what it can NOT do for their former countries.

-Some immigrants doctors want to get rich quick to catch up with the wealth built up over many generations of native doctors.

2. Abuse of health care service by immigrant patients.

Some immigrants have the habit to go to their doctors from the same country of origin for everything medical or not: health problem, certifying their administrative papers (for non-medical purposes such as for banking, citizenship, driving license and travel), translating their administrative papers (for non-medical purposes such as for banking, citizenship, driving license and travel). They cover that unhealthy access to health care cost by tacking the service at the end of their (unnecessary) “medical check ups”.

Some immigrants are unemployed, feel lonely, fear death and sickness so they want to have someone to talk to. Instead of going to coffee bars they go to the medical office of their ethnicity. Some make regular “medical check ups” TWICE weekly.

Some immigrants want to buy subsidized prescription medicines to bring back to their home countries for use by someone else.

3. Abuse of health care service by immigrant service providers.

Some immigrants health care service providers (doctors and nurses) do carry out illegal practice of certifying their administrative papers, translating their administrative papers tacked at the end of (unnecessary) “medical check ups”..

Some immigrants health care service providers ask their immigrant patients to make unnecessary visits:

-Asking patients to come back for “medical check ups” after diagnosis of simple seasonal influenza infection.

-Asking patients to come back for “medical check ups” just to be told that they have very good results for their blood test .

4. Conclusion.

Excessive spending on health care is unjustified, especially when it is done marginally fraudulently. National budget will be blown up and there will be no money left for anything else.

Australian government should urgently reform its health care rules and regulations to stop the abuse cited above.

A COMPULSORY co-contribution of about $5 per doctor visit may be able to reduce the number of unnecessary visits and make the national health budget healthy again [11]. (The co-contributions should be directly deducted from the coming benefit payment of the patients to avoid the doctor voiding the obligation of his patients.)
