Skin tags, also known as acrochordons, are harmless small skin growths that look very similar to a mushroom or a small piece of hanging skin. They typically have a skinny base with a larger growth at the top. They can appear virtually anywhere, but typically show up in areas where the skin rubs together such as the:
? Under the breasts
? In the groin
? The upper chest
? The neck
Skin tags are invariably benign, non-cancerous skin growths that are asymptomatic. Essentially they show no symptoms unless they are harmed in some way via being scratched or rubbed. Skin tags are made from fibers, ducts, nerve cells with a covering or epidermis.
Some people are more susceptible to getting skin tags. Causes include being overweight, hormonal shifts (in pregnancy), genetics and more. We don?t really know exactly why they appear. Thankfully they can be easily removed with a number of homeopathic methods. The one I will discussing today is with Tea Tree Oil, or melaleuca oil. It is an oil that it taken from the Melaleuca alternifolia plant. It is native to some areas of Australia. Tea tree oil has been used for decades to treat a number of health conditions, mostly those affecting the skin due to its antiseptic, antibiotic, antifungal and antiviral properties. Continue reading
Ensuring the safety of their guests and employees is the top priority for hoteliers. Whether operating a beachside hotel, ski resort in the Rockies, or urban skyscraper, natural disasters and emergency situations are a reality. Hoteliers who display a heightened approach to crisis management and communications are better prepared for such frightening scenarios.
Hosting hundreds of travel writers this past September for the Society of American Travel Writers convention, Bermuda’s Fairmont Southampton and Fairmont Hamilton Princess hotels were not going to let a looming hurricane dampen the annual conference. As Hurricane Erin prepared to bear down on Bermuda with winds up to 85 miles per hour, hotel employees readied to execute an expeditious plan for the safety of the employees and guests. All team members assumed specific duties from locking …
RAID (redundant array of independent disks or formally, redundant array of inexpensive disks) is a method of organizing computer data into a storage system that uses multiple disks or drives (two or more). Data is categorized by importance and function and then stored accordingly, allowing your computer to perform much more efficiently as the hard drive is less cluttered with data. RAID is not meant to be used as a sole back-up system for your data, it is primarily meant to increase your computer’s performance which is why it’s popular for servers that connect with multiple computers. In enhancing your computer’s performance, it stores and, depending on the level of RAID, creates copies of your data. Because of this data storage capability, RAID recovery companies can retrieve data from your hard drive(s) after a malfunction or physical damage.
In the case of hard drive malfunction, due to accidental deletion, corruption of files or improper installation of software, etc., RAID data can most likely be retrieved remotely, online. RAID Recovery Services is an online site that specializes in remote RAID data recovery. They recover RAID levels 0, 1, 5 and 6, indicating their expertise at personal computer data retrieval as well as small business servers. This can be done online by establishing a connection between the customer computer and a technician, Continue reading
In the early morning hours of August 24, 1992, a wicked hurricane ripped through southern Florida. By lunchtime, 15 people were dead and 250,000 were homeless. Ten years after one of the worst natural disasters in U.S. history, prompting serious regulations, witnesses remember Hurricane Andrew’s scariest moments and the struggles of starting over.
“If Our Marriage Survived This, We Can Get Through Anything.”
Leslie Case, then 27, was relaxing with her husband, Brad, at the family’s Florida Keys beach house when the first warnings about Hurricane Andrew flashed across the TV screen. Together the Cases stored away the deck furniture–“just in case the wind was bad”–and decided to head back to their avocado and lime farm in Homestead, 60 miles away. Leslie, three months pregnant with her first child, …
Legislated restriction of non-audit services would seriously impact not only small accounting firms but small and midsized businesses across America, according to testimony presented to the U.S. Senate by William Balhoff, CPA, and the chair of PCPS, a membership division within the American Institute of CPAs that represents the interests of over 6,100 local and regional CPA firms.
In response to the debacle of the Enron Corp., both the Senate and the House of Representatives are working on bills that would attempt to prevent corporate financial disasters that are caused by questionable accounting. The House bill seems to be following the service restrictions that the nation’s biggest accounting firms have already committed to.
It would require firms to abstain from providing internal audits and technology implementation services to the public …
For most communities, planning for a bioterrorist attack was theoretical. The threat might have existed, but the idea that such an attack could be perpetrated against the United States was hardly given a second thought by most people.
Then came the stunning news in October, when letters containing anthrax spores were sent to Capitol Hill and buildings in Florida and New York City. Traces of the deadly microbes also were found in local government and postal locations along the East Coast. Five people died and 13 others took ill as a result of the incident. For a nation still reeling from the tragedy of Sept. 11, the anthrax attack drove home the point that everyone, everywhere was potentially vulnerable to a bioterrorist or chemical attack.
Thurston County, 3,000 miles away …
