Safety Testing of Chemicals Should Include Interactions With Other Chemicals

Normally when one thinks about a synergistic effect it is in the form of doing something good for your body. For instance, you may take calcium with vitamin D because one helps the body absorb the other. The same might apply to taking one medication that helps you with an ailment and then another that addresses potential side effects of that first medication. Just as there are combinations of drugs and other things that may add up to be of more benefit, there are combinations that do harm. This may even be the case when the individual substances have been ruled ‘safe’ by regulatory bodies.

We live in a chemical laden society says Brad Reifler. They are in our kitchen, bathroom and just about every other room of the house. Typically, when regulatory authorities test chemicals to determine their safety, they do so for each chemical by itself. However, in the course of our daily lives, we may be exposed to multiple chemicals at once, so some researchers think this should be taken into account when they are tested for safety. An article in the Los Angeles Times points to a study that finds about 50 commonplace chemicals in our lives may increase one’s chances of getting cancer when used in combination. Government and industry testing labs should update their methodologies to reflect the fact that we live amongst a plethora of chemicals and their combined use also needs to be looked into.

Disney Parks Ban Selfie Sticks

If you plan to take a selfie of youself and your family and friends at a Disney theme park, you will have to stretch and hold your phone at arm’s length. You won’t be able to use one of the popular metal rods, called selfie sticks, that clamp on to your phone and allow you to click on the attached remote button to take the picture. Selfie sticks have been banned at all Disney parks.

 

Disney officials raised concerns that some of the park visitors could get accidentally hit with a stick during selfie photo shoots says Igor Cornelsen. They also say the selfie sticks are a safety hazard on park rides because the sticks extend out so far they could accidentally get caught in a ride’s mechanics and interfere with its operations. And, with several people using the selfie sticks in one location, the potential for problems multiply accordingly.

 

Several other places have banned the sticks as well, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum, New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art and several other museums, both in the United States and the United Kingdom.

 

The practice of banning selfie sticks is expected to become more widespread as others decide to curtail the practice before problems occur. At Disney parks, visitors can leave their selfie sticks in lockers outside the parks’ entrances and pick them up when they leave.

The Iran Nuclear Power Deal Will Miss The June Deadline

Both Sides Say There Are Major Obstacles Hindering The Execution Of The Deal

Iran and six other world powers can agree on a nuclear deal. The United States and five other countries believe Iran has the ability to create nuclear weapons, and they want to control that ability using a nuclear agreement. The agreement says that Iran can use nuclear power for other reasons, but they can build weapons. Iran says they don’t want to build weapons. They just want power to “keep the lights,” so to speak.

Folks at Boraie Development recognize that the major issues that are hindering the deal may be hard to overcome. Iran wants the other countries to stop inspecting their power plants once the deal is signed, and the six other countries want to continue inspecting Iranian nuclear plants long after the agreement is signed.

But the real issue, when all the fat is cut out of the rhetoric from both sides, is a lack of trust. Iran doesn’t trust the West, and the West doesn’t trust Iran. Without trust, a lasting agreement is out of reach. Trust can’t be trusted unless it is earned. The history of these countries proves that trust has always been the main issue.

Ariana Grande Has Harsh Words for Members of SCOTUS

Ariana Grande celebrated her 22nd birthday in supreme style s her New York City show on June 26th was also the day that the Supreme Court of the United States dubbed gay marriage as being legal across all 50 states. Grande has been a long outspoken supporter of gay and transgender rights, standing up for her brother Frankie, who is gay. At one point during the show, the singer had some very harsh words for the members of SCOTUS who voted against gay marriage, telling them to “get their heads out of their f—ing a—es.”

According to Brad Reifler, this was just one moment in the evening that celebrated the ruling that #LoveWins. She performed her biggest hits and did plenty of tributes to the gay culture with classic covers. She tore up the stage with Madonna’s “Vogue” and Chaka Kahn’s “I’m Every Woman” (made famous by Whitney Houston). She kept telling her fans to make some noise in honor of love and of pride. She was surrounded by friends and family and her excited vibe was contagious.

While Not Exactly Acting Presidential, The Donald Disses Back Neil Young

2016 GOP presidential contender Donald Trump wasted no time in returning the diss back to geezer rocker Neil Young. It turns out that Young, a Canadian citizen, supports the candidacy of Socialist Democrat Bernie Sanders in his long shot bid for the 2016 Democrat presidential nomination. As a result, he was not pleased at all with Trump using his song “Rockin’ in the Free World” as bumper music during his campaign announcement. Young was blunt in his tweet saying that Trump did not have permission to be using the song.

As far as the song itself goes, “Rockin’ in the Free World” became the theme song to celebrate the collapse of Communism in Easter Europe during the late 1980s and early 1990s. Ironically, the song was actually written by Young to ridicule the administration of President George H.W. Bush, a Republican. In that respect, Trump is probably better off finding another song.

That said, this week The Donald fired back at Young accusing him of hypocrisy. It turns out that Young recently visited Trump requesting financing for a business deal concerning audio equipment. In fact, Trump says that Young personally invited him to attend a concert days before his presidential announcement. In one sense, it is understandable that Trump would fire back at Young for the public “diss”. The real estate mogul has made it clear on his hit show “Celebrity Apprentice” that he values loyalty above all else. A few at Madison Street Capital can clearly see it when checking Crunchbase.com. So when someone who displays friendship acts blatantly disloyal, it is unpardonable. Still, Trump’s retort wasn’t exactly presidential.

Police Officer Gives Girl in Impoverished Neighborhood iPad When Hearing Why She Had a Lemonade Stand

In Lake County, Ohio a local police officer, Zach Ropos, did something amazing after stopping by Gabrielle’s lemonade stand. It all started when Ropos asked what she would do with the money she earned. Gabrielle replied she wanted an iPad to do her schoolwork and play games on. She said her parents were struggling financially, and she knew she needed to get the money to buy her own iPad.

Initially, Ropos planned to give Gabrielle an older iPad he owned, but he discovered it didn’t work so he purchased a brand-new one. This became even more special when Gabrielle’s mom said her daughter just offered her all the lemonade money for gas in the car right before he’d arrived. Crystal Hunt thought that was pretty crazy when she read it on Twitter.

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office said they thought Ropos would be “embarrassed to hear this highlighted and that it was never his intention to get recognized. But great job Deputy Ropos on making this little girl’s day! You really make a difference. And all of the best to Gabrielle and her new I-Pad.”

The owners formerly took collections of American men to Moscow as well as St. Petersburg on prearranged expeditions to meet Russian women that were single. The company quickly turned out to be a success thus expanding its operations to take in more cities all over Russia plus Ukraine. In 2003 Anastasia Date took its operations online and since then, it has achieved remarkable growth every year.

Dr. Rod Rohrich: Compassion and Care

Dr. Rohrich’s experience alone is enough to convince you that he is one of the best plastic surgeon’s in the United States. His work has garnered numerous awards, most recently, he was selected by Castle Connolly as a top plastic surgeon in the country. He has a decorated academic and training record, a few notables include Baylor College of Medicine, the University of Michigan, Harvard, and Oxford. If that wasn’t enough, he has written over 700 articles on plastic surgery and authored 5 textbooks on the field. However, what sets Dr. Rohrich apart from other top surgeons is not this prestigious resume, it is the compassion with which he delivers his care.

A thread of compassion can be seen throughout the things that Rohrich does. He has a philosophy of treating all patients equal and works with a great diversity of patients. Rohrich is highly regarded for his work in secondary rhinoplasty and other corrective procedures that fix complications from poorly performed plastic surgeries. He seems to have a true heart for patients and making things better for them. Rohrich’s refining spirit is not just confined to his medical practice. His compassion extends outward; he is an advocate for patient safety and gives counsel to how others should go about choosing their plastic surgeon. He has advanced the field with significant innovations in procedural processes and advancements in understanding. Additionally, he is a professor at UT Southwestern and is training the next generation of plastic surgeons to be more effective medical professionals and future innovators.

It should not come as a surprise that Dr. Rohrich’s life extends into the philanthropic realm. In support of his undergraduate alma mater and home state, Rohrich’s own foundation funds a University of North Dakota medical student’s tuition yearly. A Dallas resident, he has also been involved in a number of organizations in the DFW metroplex: March of Dimes, Save the Children of Dallas, Dallas for Children Foundation, American Cancer Society, and the Evergreen Gala Advisory board. Finally, Dr. Rohrich helped found the Alliance in Reconstructive Surgery Foundation, a non-profit which helps women discern reconstruction options after breast cancer and provides charitable reconstructive surgery to women who cannot afford the procedure.

Compassion and care are certainly the markers of Dr. Rod Rohrich–a specialist in every sense of the word.
