Glycerin Eczema Creams and Eczema Rash Care



Glycerin is an emollient that is commonly found in moisturizers and other Eczema creams. It is a derivative of vegetable or animal oils, and has been proven effective in treating dryness. Eczema is often associated with dry and itchy skin. As a component of Eczema cream, Glycerin heals irritated skin by helping it attract and retain moisture.

Glycerin Eczema creams are best applied after bathing while the skin is still moist. It locks in moisture and keeps the skin from going dry. Be sure to use a non-drying soap or soap-free cleansers when bathing. Refrain from using bath scrubs and sponges when you have Eczema. Instead, use your hands to create a rich lather and apply this to your skin. Eczema sufferers may benefit from adding essential oils to their bath.

Stay away from heavily perfumed products, and choose alcohol-free items instead. Natural, non-comedogenic and fragrance-free products are your best bet. Using cosmetics is discouraged, but you may try organic make-up if you want. Each person may react differently to a certain product, which is why it is important to do a skin test first when using something for the first time. Stop using a product if you develop an allergic reaction.

Washing your clothes with a gentle detergent may help prevent outbreaks. Dyes and fabric softeners aggravate Eczema rashes. Be sure to wash and rinse your clothes thoroughly, especially newly purchased ones. Linens and beddings are also in constant contact with your skin, so remember to give them the same attention as well.

Choose carefully when shopping for clothes. Synthetic fibers can be itchy on skin. There’s no need to buy expensive clothes made of organic cotton. Clothes made of 100% cotton will do. Stay away from polyester and wool especially during warm and humid weather. Eczema rashes can get worse when exposed to extreme temperatures, so remember to dress appropriately for the weather.

Australian Governor-General visits Wagga Wagga

Posted on 12th October 2015 by in Uncategorized

Wednesday, February 20, 2013 

Wagga Wagga, New South Wales — Sunday, Governor-General of Australia, Quentin Bryce and her husband, Michael Bryce, visited the city of Wagga Wagga to launch the Junior Teams event and present the awards to the winners at the 2013 Allen’s Coaches World Championship Gumi, meet the North Wagga Wagga residents who were affected by the March 2012 floods and meet a small group of volunteers from the NSW RFS, SES and the VRA at a community barbecue at Wagga Beach.

After the Gumi presentations, Governor-General Bryce addressed the media about the Gumi, stating that “It’s so quirky and I love the way it brings this community together, this community that’s known for its fantastic spirit.” She also commented on the floods which affected the suburb of North Wagga in March 2012. Bryce stated that “A very special thing for me was being at North Wagga Wagga this morning, to see people again whom I meet almost a year ago after the devastation of the floods in that part of the city, […] So many people have a long way to recover but their spirit, resilience, courage and determination, what they’ve been though, is a source for inspiration to all of us.”

Study raises health concerns about shower curtains

Posted on 12th October 2015 by in Uncategorized

Monday, June 16, 2008 

The Canadian Environmental Law Assocation and the Canadian organization Environmental Defence jointly conducted a study that was released to the public on Thursday, saying that chemicals released by new vinyl curtains may pose a significant health risk.

The study noted that many shower curtains contain more than 100 volatile organic compounds (VOCs), phthalates and organotins, some of which may be released into the air when first taken from a package. These chemicals, responsible for the characteristic smell of new vinyl, may cause damage to kidneys, the liver and the central nervous systems, respiratory problems, nausea, headaches and loss off coordination, according to the report.

These vinyl curtains are also said to contain traces of metals like lead, cadmium and mercury.

Jennifer Foulds of Environmental Defence advises consumers to seek alternatives to new vinyl products such as shower curtains and table cloths. Older products are thought to be safe, as they have already released most of the allegedly dangerous chemicals.

Critics of the study have called it “fear-mongering”, and some health professionals agree that the risk is being overblown. Warren Foster, a professor in the obstetrics and gynecology department at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario points out that, “the difference between hazard and risk is great, and without knowing the actual human exposure, it’s premature to make any judgement.”

Foster further commented that the study was not performed in a rigorous manner by not having controls or random sampling.

Five brands of shower curtain were examined in the study; they were purchased from American stores including Bed Bath & Beyond, Kmart, Sears, Target and Wal-Mart. Curtains of the same brand are also available in major Canadian stores.

Marion Axmith, director general of the Vinyl Council of Canada calls the report a “blatant attempt to manipulate consumers and retailers into thinking shower curtains pose a danger, and they don’t.” She noted that, “as far as we know, nobody’s ever been harmed by a shower curtain.”

Vinyl has long been a point of dispute between environmentalists and those in the chemical industry. A chemical used to make vinyl is known to be a risk for liver and other cancers for chemical plant workers, and the phthalates in vinyl products have been linked to interference with normal male hormone production.

Seo5 Consulting

Let’s face it; not everyone is given the gift of a perfect set of teeth. Your teeth can give you a wide variety of problems for reasons varying from unfortunate genetics, to negligence. Fortunately, there are dentists like Dr. Alan Zweig, who work with dental implants to transform an “unfortunate” smile, into one that is downright dazzling.

Dr. Alan Zweig has been a practicing dentist in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles for 30 years. In addition to regular, preventative dental services, Dr. Zweig is the go-to dentist for dental implants, and other types of prosthodontics, and cosmetic dentistry. His superior services include the utilization of the latest dental technology, giving every one of his patients the opportunity to obtain a smile they deserve, rather than an unconfident smile they naturally developed or developed due to unfortunate circumstances. Those services include extensive use of dental implants, which are the most natural looking and feeling alternatives to bridges, crowns and dentures.

Dental implants, which are anchored into the jaw, are made with titanium that is remarkably compatible with natural bone. Dental implants can permanently replace missing teeth, without the hassle of having to deal with removable bridges or even full dentures. The dental implant is permanent, therefore giving the patient the ability to care for his or her dental implants as they would natural teeth. In addition, there is no need to worry about having to remove dental implants because unlike dentures, they are placed permanently in the mouth to provide the patient with years of a worry-free, dazzling smile.

5-year old American girl dies after visiting the dentist

Posted on 10th October 2015 by in Uncategorized

Friday, September 29, 2006 

Diamond Brownridge, a 5-year old girl from Chicago, Illinois, has died after a visit to the dentist. Children’s Memorial Hospital officials say that the girl was rushed to the hospital when she never woke up after being sedated for a dental procedure. She had been in a coma, on life support, since being admitted to the hospital early in the weekend.

“She passed very peacefully and beautifully,” said the hospital in a statement that the family issued.

Ommettress Travis, the mother of the girl, was asked not to remain inside the room while dentists were operating on the girl to repair two cavities and to have at least two caps replaced. Travis says after thirty minutes she was asked to come back in and found Brownridge not breathing, in the dentist chair.

Hicham Riba, a specialist and professional in anesthesia, who was also licensed, was the dentist in charge of the procedure.

“My family and I are so sad. May God bless Diamond and her family. Every time you have a tragedy like this, you pray more. I don’t think I will ever go back to a normal life after an experience like this,” Riba said in a statement on Wednesday, September 28.

According to the family, the girl had been given at least a triple dose of medicine that sedated her. Those drugs include: nitrous oxide gas, a single dose of an “oral agent” and an IV.

A judge has ordered that all equipment and materials used during the operation be protected and examined. The girl’s medical records have also been ordered to be examined.

There is no word on whether or not any charges will be filed against Riba or any of the dentist’s staff.

Study: cognitive therapy as good as medication, but lasts longer

Posted on 10th October 2015 by in Uncategorized

Wednesday, April 6, 2005  A landmark study comparing effectiveness in reducing major depression of two forms of initial treatment — cognitive therapy which involves discussing thought processes with a qualified counselor, vs medication — has revealed that both forms of therapy reduce depression, but that the benefits of cognitive therapy last longer than those of medication. The study finding contradicts current treatment guidelines of the American Psychiatric Association (APA).

The 16-week study, by researchers at the University of Pennsylvania and Vanderbilt University, was the largest trial yet undertaken to resolve the years-old debate. Two-hundred-and-forty patients with moderate-to-severe depression were given one or other of the treatments, or a purposely-ineffective placebo. Study representatives described the two treatments about equally effective — both much more effective than the placebo — but with the positive effect of talk-therapy lasting longer.

In fact, the cognitive therapy group saw only as many relapses as a another group that had continued to receive drug therapy.

“We believe that cognitive therapy might have more lasting effects because it equips patients with the tools they need to learn how to manage their problems and emotions,” said Robert DeRubeis, professor and chair of Penn’s Department of Psychology. “Pharmaceuticals, while effective, offer no long term cure for the symptoms of depression. For many people, cognitive therapy might prove to be the preferred form of treatment.”

“Medication is often an appropriate treatment, but drugs have drawbacks, such as side effects or a diminished efficacy over time,” DeRubeis said. “Patients with depression are often overwhelmed by other factors in their life that pills simply cannot solve. In many cases, cognitive therapy succeeds because it teaches the skills that help people cope.”

Researchers pointed out that while the effectiveness of cognitive therapy depended largely on the experience of the practitioner, the same was true of medication, due to the judgement required in prescribing correct dosages of drugs.

The APA declined to comment, on the basis that a quote appearing on Wikinews could be distorted by subsequent edits of the article.

Police Oral Boards Importance Of Preparation

Posted on 9th October 2015 by in Pallet Racking

By Detective Christian Cory

One of the hardest parts about starting a career in law enforcement is the application process; it is long and can be nerve-racking. A life-changing event is hanging in the balance and you have to sit and wait. I remember driving two and a half hours just to turn in my application.

This did not take into account the logistics of finding a place to stay overnight to make an early morning appointment or physical agility test.

I knew these pre-employment trips would pay off, in fact, they had to, I was relocating to the city prior to knowing the outcome. It was at this point I knew I had met all the minimum qualifications and passed my test. The oral board was next and I could not let my dream career slip past me, it was time to go get what I wanted.

I knew the police oral board was one of the toughest job interviews around. It was then, and still is today, and as always the competition is fierce. The oral boards will produce the greatest movement on law enforcement agency’s hiring lists and final ranking of candidates. It will also eliminate the most candidates from the hiring process. The police oral board is the point in the hiring process where you either win your job, or are asked to go through the process again.

YouTube Preview Image

In a federal government study on the hiring and retention of police officers, they revealed the following: Large agencies took over 11 weeks to screen applicants and smaller agencies over 6 weeks. Bottom line, waiting for a second chance will cost you more time and resources.

Do not let these numbers get you down. Other candidates go into their oral board and assume their resume or qualifications will get them through. Did you know that the best-qualified applicants often do not get hired? That is right; it is all about the oral board. Some candidates will go into their oral board and ‘wing it.’ Applicants like these will not stand a chance when they are challenged on scenario questions by veteran officers, deputies, and command staff board members. Applicants like these do not know how to take advantage of hidden opportunities presented to them. Applicants like these will not make the cut. The oral board will create the greatest movement in the rankings on departmental hiring lists. The applicant who prepared to win at all aspects of the oral board will prevail.

Imagine yourself walking into your first police oral board right now with no preparation. How self-confident are you? You have had other job interviews, but none like this. Consider this quote by tennis great Arthur Ashe:

“One important key to success is self-confidence. An important key to self-confidence is preparation.” – Arthur Ashe

Now imagine yourself walking into a police oral board with some coaching. You have reviewed actual oral board questions; you know what to expect. You have studied effective oral board answers; you have solid content. You have mastered effective body language and presentation techniques; you know how to deliver. The self-confidence you have will be self-evident and oral board members will be impressed, not only consciously, but also sub-consciously. You are the complete package who shows tremendous preparation skills and outstanding oral communication. You win, here is your chance to win your badge.

powerful police oral board strategies

that are proven to give improved rankings to law enforcement candidates. See the only police oral board training video and get the advantage before your interview.

State of emergency declared in New York over H1N1 swine flu virus

Posted on 8th October 2015 by in Uncategorized

Thursday, October 29, 2009 

According to US health officials, New York state governor David Paterson has declared a state of emergency in the state as a result of the H1N1 swine flu outbreak.

The Associated Press news agency reports that the six-page declaration was issued because at least 75 people have died of H1N1 related illnesses in New York since April. Three have died from H1N1 related illnesses just this past week. The declaration also says that human cases of the virus are on the rise.

Paterson says he issued the declaration because “a disaster has occurred throughout New York State, for which the affected local governments are unable to respond adequately.”

The declaration will allow health officials more access to the H1N1 vaccine and the seasonal flu shot. It will also allow for an increase in the number of vaccine doses available in the state and will allow more health care facilities to administer the vaccine, including dentists and pharmacists. Schools with health centers will also be allowed to administer both vaccines.

Despite the declaration, officials stressed that there is no reason to worry. A spokeswoman for the New York State Department of Health, Claire Pospisil, said that “it [the declaration] helps us to be more prepared.”

The order came shortly after US president Barack Obama declared a national emergency last Saturday, a response to the spreading of the virus, which has now been circulated in 46 states.
