"The milk is in the kitchen."

sooo... today i had my six-month mapping appointment and i must say i am quite pleased with myself.

at first, i was a bit "nervous" because i forgot to bring my SPrint body-worn processor (bwp) with me. you see, i haven't worn it in almost a month -- since i started my new job, actually -- so it didn't occur to me to take it to the mapping session. it's not like i thought i would get in trouble or anything... it's just that this is the first time ever since i was hooked up in February that i did not have my bwp with me.

well, Judy (my audiologist) was totally fine with it and said that she would just map my 3G, the ear-level processor i've been wearing all along. there were no problems -- things happened the way they have in the past -- so the mapping process was uneventful. because the implanted ear is supposed to get "used to" the sounds and eventually stabilitze at a specific threshold/comfort range, it isn't surprising that not much has changed.


now that it has been almost 6 hours since my mapping session, i can really hear a difference.

i have 2 programs in my processor -- Program 1 (the volume setting) has today's new map; Program 2 also has today's new map, but is set for sensitivity. before today's adjustment, i would use Program 1 at about a 3-4 volume range. i would usually find it getting softer at the end of the day, so much so that sometimes i'd have to turn the volume up to 5-6 or higher.

well, right now, i have Program 1 set at a volume of 1 and it sounds GREAT! wow... the difference a "little" adjustment makes!

after the mapping session, Judy then tested me in the sound booth using a sentence recognition CD. the first set of sentences i scored a 100% -- yay, me! the second set of sentences was "harder" because the narration was set to background noise. this set i had a score of "only" 98% BUT!!!

i corrected myself.

how, you ask?

i heard -- and meant to repeat back -- "The milk is in the pitcher." too bad i didn't trust my CI to say so in the first place.

Judy gave me the 100% anyway.

    -Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
    the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
    REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

    These newly enhanced Global Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth before they can
    be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for lumber is 30-50 years.

    Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number of other benefits.
    Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and the lack of oils and sap found in the wood
    make it resistant to forest fire, ensuring higher returns on investments.

    the wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
    as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
    the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
    time to replant and develop new root systems.

    Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140 Million
    with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With anticipated
    growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during its initial 9-year cycle.

    Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153 Million in revenues.
    As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree continues to grow around the world
    EGTY believes additional multi-million dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
    about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of 250,000 infant plants per month.

    Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business owners in New Zealand,
    Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular and profitable fast growing infant tree plants.
    Inquiries from the governments of Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.
