There was a similar pattern at the restaurant - the staff are all very friendly and really want to help, but while much of their English is very good, it definitely wasn't the first language of either of our waitresses or of our chef and there were a number of moments where we would ask something and it would take repeated effort and a couple of tries at rephrasing our question before they understood what we were asking.
So a slightly different sort of teppanyaki experience, which is just that - different. Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj, so the two older boys were a bit goggle eyed at times. The Asian pop music videos were hilarious, though, especially the group that seemed to be sponsored by Pepsi. Overall, we had a great time: the food is good, they've got a great range of drinks, and the staff are terrific if you can show a little patience.
The chef's show was really nice if you want to have a special time, u can go there! U mustn't regret! And i like the sources especially the peanut source with meat is good combination. Also all waitress are kind!! I recomend this place!!
My friends and I really love the food,the drinks,the show and everything in this restaurant. It's a good place for eating with fun. I hadn't told them that day was my birthday before,but when we told the chef it was my birthday,he drew a beautiful illustration on the teppan!
Of course the dinner was delicious!! I'll take my friends there again soon!!!. I went here with my friends Week ago. The chef cooked for us was so funny, we played games such as catching eggs and rice, that was so enjoyable for us. By the way there are some good cocktails as well.
I really love the one called 'Okinawa island '. We enjoyed a lot their friendly and nice servise, chef's performance, and dishes!! I especially loved scallps and prawn. This is the restaurant you must try in Sydney! Lovely service. Large selection of drinks. A fun night out for everyone. The food was fresh and beatifully cooked in front of us. Jack, the chef, was very entertaining Some of us didn't catch it but it was fun.
We all had a good laugh. Staff were friendly. Will go back there again. Great value with a good selection of seafood, chicken, steak, fried rice, vegetables soup, served with nice cold beer friendly service.
Highly recommend for a way to spend 2 hours eating being entertained by quality cooks. It was flavourless and the portions were tiny yet I still couldn't bring myself to finish. It's always a great night out. They knew it was my birthday and the night I arrived with all my friends they were having a power cut Following consent and baseline screening, 60 eligible adults with SCD were enrolled in the study.
Participant baseline characteristics: Pilot feasibility RCT of a week Kirtan Kriya meditation KK versus a week music listening ML program in 60 adults with subjective cognitive decline.
Participants in the two groups did not differ significantly in demographic or lifestyle factors, BMI, or medical history Table 2. Participant duration of memory concerns and baseline scores on memory and cognitive function tests, and on sleep, stress, mood, well-being, and quality of life questionnaires.
Each participant received the intervention as allocated. No adverse events were observed or reported. As illustrated in Table 4 , both the KK and ML groups showed significant improvements overall at 12 weeks in psychological well-being and multiple domains of mood and sleep quality. These improvements were sustained or further strengthened at 26 weeks. In addition, those assigned to the KK group demonstrated significant gains in perceived stress, and in the Mental Health component of QOL at both 12 and 26 weeks, including improvements in 3 of 4 constituent domains; the ML group, by contrast, showed modest improvement in only one QOL domain at 12 weeks, that pertaining to pain Table 4 , but did demonstrate significant gains in 2 of the 4 mental health component domains at 26 weeks.
With the exception of the QOL physical component, which did not change significantly with either intervention, overall effect sizes in the KK group ranged from moderate QOL, Mental health component, sleep quality, psychological well-being to large mood, perceived stress depending on the measure, whereas those in the ML group varied overall from small psychological well-being, and QOL, mental health component to moderate perceived stress, mood, sleep quality.
The two groups did not differ in any domain of sleep quality at either time point. Change over time in perceived stress, sleep, mood, well-being and quality of life in adults with subjective cognitive decline. ITT analyses using multiple imputation yielded similar results. Improvement in sleep quality at 12 weeks was significantly correlated with week changes in stress, well-being, and both components of QOL, and with positive changes in stress, well-being and the QOL Physical Health composite score at 26 weeks; gains in sleep quality at 26 weeks were significantly related to improved well-being and QOL both components at both 12 and 26 weeks, and to improvements in mood at 26 weeks Table 5.
Adherence was not significantly related to change over time in any measure. Relation between changes over time in mood, sleep, well-being, and quality of life in adults with subjective cognitive decline. As illustrated in Table 6 , participant improvements in overall measures of mood, stress, sleep, well-being, or quality of life were significantly and positively associated with gains in subjective memory function. For example, improvements in overall mood POMS and reductions in perceived stress were significantly related to increases in MFQ total scores, and in certain MFQ domains, including Frequency of Forgetting and Seriousness of Forgetting, at both 12 and 26 weeks.
Likewise, improvements in psychological well-being were significantly correlated with gains in subjective memory function, with these relationships appearing stronger for memory function gains at 26 weeks; the mental health component of QOL was also significantly related to gains in the MFQ at both time points Table 5.
Improvements in overall sleep quality were significantly related to increases only in the MFQ retrospective memory function subscale. Similarly, concerns regarding memory at 6 months were strongly correlated with improvements in overall mood at both 12 and 26 weeks, with the mental health component of QOL at 12 weeks, and with psychological well-being scores at 26 weeks.
Relation of changes over time in memory and cognitive function to those in mood, sleep, well-being and quality of life in older adults with subjective cognitive decline. In contrast, relationships of change in performance-based measures to improvements in mood, stress, and well-being were relatively weak, and evident only for the TMT-A mood at both time points, and perceived stress at 26 weeks and the DSST well-being at 26 weeks ; similarly, improvements in overall OOL was related only to gains in the TMT-A, and only at 26 weeks.
In this pilot randomized controlled trial of older adults with SCD, participants assigned to both the KK meditation and the ML groups demonstrated significant and sustained improvements in measures of mood, stress, sleep quality, well-being, and quality of life mental health component , with improvements in most measures reflecting clinically significant differences [ , ]. Overall gains were particularly marked in the KK group. Observed improvements were not explained by baseline treatment expectancies, suggesting that expectations of benefit did not significantly influence outcomes in this study.
Likewise, we found no evidence of a modifying effect of depression or anxiety, age, gender, medication use, comorbidity, baseline scores on psychosocial or cognitive tests, or other factors, indicating that these simple mind-body practices may be suitable for a variety of populations experiencing early memory loss.
This study is the first to investigate the possible benefits of mind-body therapies for improving psychosocial outcomes in older adults with SCD, and helps to address the need for exploring effective interventions in this population.
To date, the few completed trials assessing psychological and related endpoints in non-cognitively impaired adults at risk for AD have yielded mixed findings, and reported improvements have been modest. For example, in a recent 3 arm RCT in 44 older Israeli adults with memory complaints, participants showed only small, non-significant declines in loneliness, and no change in depressive symptoms following completion of a week health promotion, cognitive training, or participation-centered course [ ].
Similarly, in a RCT of an month individualized home-based exercise program in adults with subjective memory impairment, participants showed no significant improvements, at any time point, in either depressive symptoms or QOL [ ]. In a large ongoing RCT of Finnish adults at risk for cognitive decline, participants assigned to a month intensive lifestyle intervention incorporating dietary counseling, exercise training, cognitive training, and vascular risk monitoring likewise showed no improvement in depressive symptoms [ ], but appeared to demonstrate small gains in some QOL domains [ ] data published in abstract form.
Consistent with findings of previous observational studies [ 18 , 19 , 21 — 27 ], neuropsychiatric impairment was elevated in this population. Most participants indicated clinically significant sleep impairment at baseline, with mean PSQI scores similar to or exceeding those in adults with insomnia [ ] or multiple chronic conditions [ ].
In addition, mean baseline quality of life was comparable to or lower than that reported in adults with a range of serious chronic conditions, including prostate cancer, diabetes, multiple sclerosis mental health component , and epilepsy and substantially lower than the general U.
Likewise, mean participant scores on all domains of the POMS, a well established and widely used measure of mood disturbance, were significantly worse than reported norms for older adults [ ], and similar to or higher than those in adults with HIV, cancer, heart failure, and other serious chronic disorders [ — ].
Similarly, participants indicated overall high levels of stress, with baseline PSS scores again comparable to or higher than those reported in patients with a variety of serious conditions, including advanced coronary artery disease [ ], multiple sclerosis [ ], and cancer [ ].
The significant and sustained improvements in psychological status, sleep, and QOL following the practice of meditation and music listening may have important implications for addressing not only the neuropsychiatric impairment common in those with SCD, but also the decline in cognitive function. Moreover, positive changes in perceived stress, affect, and well-being in this study were significantly and directly correlated with improvements in subjective memory function and, albeit more modestly, to certain gains in objective cognitive performance, suggesting a possible functional relationship between changes in psychosocial status and those in cognitive function.
This relationship is likely bidirectional and synergistic. For example, growing evidence suggests that neuropsychiatric impairment in those with early memory loss can itself increase risk of accelerated cognitive decline, neuropathological change, and progression to AD.
Like MCI and AD, SCD has been strongly linked to chronic psychological distress [ 22 — 24 ], elevated depressive [ 19 , 21 , 25 — 27 ], and anxiety symptoms [ 21 , 25 , 27 ], and sleep disturbance [ 18 , 25 ], factors shown to increase risk for accelerated cognitive decline and neurodegenerative changes [ 28 , 31 , 32 , 34 — 36 ], and ultimately, conversion to MCI and AD [ 4 , 5 , 34 , 35 , 39 — 51 , , ].
Compounding these changes, adults with memory complaints are also significantly more likely to experience subsequent deterioration in physical health, dependency, and institutionalization [ ]. However, despite the often substantial psychological and functional challenges associated with SCD, those with memory complaints rarely seek help for their concerns [ 24 , ]. This reluctance to seek care is likely due in part to the widespread fear and related stigma surrounding AD [ — ], coupled with the recognized absence of effective treatments [ 56 , ].
Thus, identifying low cost, sustainable, non-stigmatizing therapies that can effectively address both neuropsychiatric and cognitive concerns early, when intervention is likely to be most effective, is of clear importance.
Of particular promise are therapies such as meditation and ML that can promote multiple beneficial changes implicated in cognitive impairment and that likely operate via multiple pathways, including those detailed above. For example, meditation and ML may reduce distress, improve well-being, and enhance cognitive function by selectively activating specific neurochemical systems and brain structures associated with positive mood, emotional regulation, attention, and memory, and promoting related beneficial neurostructural changes [ 63 , — ].
For instance, recent studies suggest that meditation can promote favorable changes in CNS dopaminergic and other neurochemical systems [ , ], and increase blood flow, oxygen delivery, and glucose utilization in specific regions of the brain associated with mood elevation, memory, and attentional processing, including the hippocampus, prefrontal cortex, and anterior cingulate gyrus [ 94 , , — ].
Long-term meditation practice has also been associated with cortical thickening and increased grey matter volume in brain regions involved in attentional performance, memory, sensory processing, and interoception [ — ], apparently offsetting typical age-related cortical thinning and grey matter loss [ , , ].
While data regarding CNS changes with music are more limited, neuroimaging studies likewise suggest that music therapy, including ML, activates pathways in brain areas involved in emotional reward and regulation, attention, memory, and other associated functions, including the prefrontal cortex, insular and cingulate cortex, hippocampus, and amygdala [ 63 , 66 , ]. Recent studies in dementia caregivers [ ] also suggest that meditation may buffer the effects of stress-induced cellular aging by directly or indirectly promoting telomere maintenance, and in this way, protecting immune function and decreasing neuronal loss and other degenerative changes associated with both mood impairment and cognitive decline.
Decreases in telomerase activity and telomere length have been linked to both chronic distressful states and cognitive impairment [ — ] and shown to predict cognitive decline in both clinical and non-clinical populations [ , ]. Likewise, recent research in healthy adults [ — ], lonely older adults [ ], and depressed dementia caregivers [ , ] suggest that meditation may also buffer or reverse multiple stress-related changes in specific gene expression pathways implicated in the development and progression of AD, including those regulating oxidative stress, inflammation, cellular aging, and other factors contributing to impaired brain structure and function, and ultimately, to cognitive decline [ — ].
While gene expression studies of music therapy are sparse, recreational music has been shown to modulate genomic stress induction signatures [ ], suggesting that ML may have beneficial effects on the transcriptome as well. In addition, KK meditation may affect psychosocial status and cognition via other pathways as well. For example, KK is a multi-modal meditation practice involving multiple tasks and sensory modalities chanting with progressive changes in volume, sequenced finger movements, visualization, and coordinated breathing.
Participants in the KK program are thus learning new motor, sensory, and physical skills, a process that has been associated with improvements in cognitive function and associated positive neurostructural changes[ ]. KK also involves training in maintenance of attention and focus, set shifting, and multi-tasking, which could, in turn, improve several domains of executive function, including working memory and cognitive flexibility.
While reasons for the greater improvements in the KK versus ML group are unknown, observed differences may in part reflect the multi-modal nature of KK meditation, as well as the more active nature of this practice. Similarly, recent small trials in young and middle-aged adults suggest that the practice of both mindfulness meditation [ ] and other forms of meditation [ , ] may activate and enhance cerebral blood flow to areas of the brain involved in memory, attention, learning, and emotional regulation.
These findings are consistent with neuroimaging data from recent studies of KK in older memory impaired adults [ 94 ], depressed dementia caregivers [ ] and experienced practitioners [ ]. However, prospective clinical trials have yielded less consistent findings regarding the effects of non-KK meditation forms on cognitive indices in older adults.
Of the few trials of non-KK mantra meditation [ , ], mindfulness meditation [ — ] and other meditation practices [ ] in older adults that have assessed cognitive function, most have shown minimal or no improvement [ — ], including two recent large RCTs of MBSR in generally healthy elders [ , ]. To date, only two published trials of non-KK meditation have included adults with memory complaints, and only one specifically targeted this population.
A four arm RCT of TM and mindfulness meditation in 73 senior home residents demonstrated significant and sustained improvements with TM and to a lesser extent mindfulness, in several cognitive indices [ ], and an RCT of MBSR in 14 adults with MCI showed no improvement in any cognitive measure and worsening on one measure [ ]. Likewise, observed effects on neuropsychiatric impairment and QOL in older adults, including those with memory loss, have tended to be modest, with several studies showing limited or no improvement with either insight meditation [ — ] or TM [ ].
In contrast, preliminary trials to date of KK meditation in dementia caregivers [ , ] and adults with early memory loss [ 94 ] have shown improvements in both cognitive function and psychosocial status consistent with those observed in the current study. However, clinical intervention trials of older adults with memory loss remain sparse, and sample sizes for most published trials to date, including those of KK, have been small, limiting conclusions.
While findings of the current study further support the promise of KK for adults with SCD, additional rigorous research in larger populations is warranted to further investigate the potential benefits of KK and other meditation practices for adults with and at risk for memory loss. Strengths of this study include the rigorous, randomized study design, measurement of multiple domains of psychosocial status and quality of life, the recruitment of participants from community-based settings, and the high retention and adherence rates in both groups.
Data on treatment expectancy also permitted us to examine the possible influence of this factor on change in outcomes, and to control for potential placebo effects. Our ability to capture an at-risk population was enhanced by our use of a questionnaire to ascertain SCD that was based on prior expert reviews and risk analyses [ 3 , 6 , 8 , ], and further enriched by eligibility criteria which included concerns regarding memory problems, a factor shown to further increase the risk for MCI and AD.
Our sample was also characterized by high prevalence of known AD risk factors, as well as mean MFQ baseline scores comparable to those of adults with amnestic MCI [ ], and substantially lower than those reported in community-based samples [ ], suggesting we did indeed capture a population at risk for cognitive decline.
However, this pilot trial also has several limitations including a relatively small sample size, and a relatively well-educated, young, motivated study population with SCD, possibly limiting generalizability to populations with other types of memory loss. It is possible that some participants may have had undiagnosed MCI, as while we did assess cognitive function and memory, we did not perform diagnostic cognitive testing in our sample.
It is possible that social desirability concerns may have biased findings toward the positive. However, this would presuppose that participants were able to remember their responses on a large battery of tests taken 3 or 6 months prior, and would not, in any case, explain the observed differences between groups or the improvement in performance-based measures of cognition.
In addition, we were careful to encourage participants to be honest in their assessments, and assure them that data entry and analysis would be only of deidentified data. Nonetheless, we cannot completely rule out the potential influence of social desirability bias.
Because the study lacked a usual care control group, we were unable to assess the possible effects of time trends on change over time. However, numerous studies in adults at risk for cognitive impairment have shown psychological status and quality of life to remain unchanged or deteriorate over time in the absence of effective intervention [ , , , — ], suggesting that simple time trends are unlikely to explain the improvements observed in this study.
In addition, participants could not be blinded to treatment assignment. However, expectancy scores were similar between groups and unrelated to outcomes. We did not exclude those currently under treatment for, or with a history of, depression or anxiety. While this could potentially explain some of the perceived memory decline in some participants, history of depression was unrelated to baseline cognitive scores and we found no evidence of a modifying or confounding effect of either history of depression or use of antidepressant medication, suggesting these factors did not influence our findings.
Given that both anxiety and depression are strong predictors of subsequent cognitive decline and dementia in previously cognitively intact adults [ 5 , 34 , 45 , 51 ], adults with depressive symptoms are an at risk group that arguably should not be excluded from intervention studies for improving cognitive function.
In fact, depression is included in at least two AD risk scales for non-demented adults [ ]. Findings of this preliminary RCT suggest that practice of KK meditation or a simple ML program can promote significant and sustained improvements in perceived stress, mood, well-being, sleep, and quality of life in adults with SCD. Observed gains in this study were particularly pronounced in the KK group. Clearly, additional high quality trials are warranted to further investigate the potential benefits of these simple mind-body programs for older adults with early memory loss; to determine the long term effects of KK and ML on psychosocial status, QOL, and cognitive function; and to investigate potential underlying mechanisms of action.

Hi there, I found your website by the use of Google while searching for a similar matter, your website came up, it seems to be good. I have bookmarked it in my google bookmarks. Despite retinal laser photocoagulation therapy in both eyes, his vision was not improved. EMB was added again to control the infection, and 1 month later his fever was controlled and his blood tests returned to normal. MRI indicated improvements in his osteomyelitis, but after receiving anti-mycobacterial chemotherapy for 18 months, the patient suddenly died of respiratory failure.
No autopsy was performed. DM can affect cytokine levels, chemotaxis and phagocytosis of monocytes and macrophages, and can cause an abnormal delayed-type hypersensitivity response [ ]. These effects are particularly serious in elderly patients with DM, and may increase the risk of intracellular infections with pathogens such as NTM and tuberculosis [ ]. Osteomyelitis is a complication of DM, and is associated with increased mortality, as well as increased costs [ ]. The infection sites varied, but were mostly in the extremities.
Three patients took immunosuppressive agents and had other serious underlying diseases, including end-stage renal disease and rheumatoid arthritis. Not all patients had a clear history of trauma or wounding, suggesting that the immunocompromised condition induced by DM might be a major risk factor for NTM infection. English language articles on nontuberculous mycobacteria NTM osteomyelitis in patients with diabetes mellitus DM. The clinical manifestations of NTM infection among DM patients vary and include fever, painless mass, fistula, and local pain [ 8 , 70 , 84 , 95 , — ].
According to his history, our patient may have initially suffered from NTM granulomatous panniculitis, with osteomyelitis developing secondary to the surgery. He had no history of trauma or wounding, but did live near a river and liked to fish, and may therefore have become infected by touching the pathogen. The current case demonstrates three points. First, macrolides might be useful in combination therapy, despite the existence of drug resistance.
Second, an adequate duration of anti-mycobacterial chemotherapy is important in DM patients with NTM osteomyelitis. Third, the antibiotics used for anti-mycobacterial chemotherapy should be chosen carefully and monitored closely to avoid adverse drug events. NTM osteomyelitis can have a poor prognosis and physicians should thus be aware of its clinical significance. However, the mechanisms of NTM pathogenesis remain poorly understood, and prophylactic options are currently limited.
In patients with osteomyelitis caused by undetermined pathogens, care is needed to differentiate NTM infection from normal pyogenic infection or tuberculosis, through blood tests, imaging examinations, pathological examination and AFB tests, and mycobacterial culture and identification of biopsy specimens during or before surgery. In vitro drug susceptibility testing is important for anti-NTM chemotherapy, and the long duration of combined antibiotic anti-mycobacterial chemotherapy means that physicians need to monitor adverse drug events and infection progress closely.

Abstract Osteomyelitis caused by nontuberculous mycobacteria NTM can have severe consequences and a poor prognosis. Keywords: Osteomyelitis, diabetes mellitus, nontuberculous mycobacteria. Species distribution and pathogenesis NTM can be isolated from the natural environment and from hospital equipment, such as xylocaine for injection, hemodialysis water, and laparoscopic instruments.
Diagnosis It is difficult to diagnose and differentiate NTM osteomyelitis from other diseases such as Langerhans cell histiocytosis or osteomyelitis caused by MTB and other bacteria. Prophylaxis There are currently few prophylactic options for NTM osteomyelitis, especially in patients with IFN-receptor deficiency [ 22 ]. Diabetes mellitus Diabetes mellitus DM can cause immune impairment, thus increasing the risk of multiple opportunistic infections, and DM is strongly associated with tuberculosis in developing countries [ ].
A case of NTM osteomyelitis associated with diabetes mellitus A year-old man found a soft, soybean-sized lump on his right upper arm on September 6, Open in a separate window. Figure 1. Table I. Conclusions NTM osteomyelitis can have a poor prognosis and physicians should thus be aware of its clinical significance. Consent Written informed consent was obtained from the patient and his kin for publication of this case report and any accompanying images.
