Got a Rash? iPad, Other
Devices Might be the Cause

Associated Press, by Lindsey Tanner

Original Article

CHICAGO -- Unexplained rash? Check your iPad. It turns out the popular tablet computer may contain nickel, one of the most common allergy-inducing metals. Recent reports in medical journals detail nickel allergies from a variety of personal electronic devices, including laptops and cellphones. But it was an Apple iPad that caused an itchy body rash in an 11-year-old boy recently treated at a San Diego hospital, according to a report in Monday´s Pediatrics. Nickel rashes aren´t life-threatening but they can be very uncomfortable, and they may require treatment with steroids and antibiotics if the skin eruptions become infected, said Dr.

Don´t most people put a protective case on their iPads?
Waiting for the rash of law suits in St.Paul , mn. They just signed with Apple to get iPads into the hands of all the public school children....at the taxpayers expense.

Nickel allergies are nasty. My wedding ring was 14k, but we found later that one of the alloys used was nickel. After a few months, my finger started turning black. Then, as time went on, I would periodically get an oozing rash. It never occurred to me that it could be an allergy to a good quality gold wedding set, so I put up with the periodic outbreaks. After several years, my Dr looked at my hand when I was having one of these episodes. Diagnosed a nickel allergy. We took my rings to a jeweler and had my diamond reset into a new wedding set, that was nickel free. Have never had a rash or black fingers, since.

“We need a national conversation…”

The Oxford Dictionaries comes out each winter and give an award to the Word of the Year. Others expand the WoTY concept to include a phrase of the year. Lately, however, I’ve been finding that there’s something missing from this system of honorifics. We need some sort of Deleted Phrase of the Year, letting everyone know that a phrase has simply been beaten to death, jumped the shark and reached the end of the line. And the first phrase we need to do away with is, we need to have a national conversation. When Robin Williams took his own life, we

Today’s top colleges are so selective that incoming students’ resumes burst with seven or eight AP courses and nine or 10 extracurriculars. Kids report cramming so hard that they’re only getting two hours of sleep a night. They’re bionic hamsters. William Deresiewicz, who taught at Yale for 10 years until 2008, thinks these students are, in a moral and spiritual sense, lost. They’re accomplished networkers who have no friends. They’re super-intelligent but have no clue. In online postings and in conversations with the author, they say that they’re forlorn, depressed, anxious, so busy studying that they never get a chance

Nude photos of Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence, as well as those purportedly showing other top Hollywood stars, were posted online in an apparent massive hacking leak. An anonymous hacker reportedly gained access to private photos on the Hunger Games actress’s mobile phone, and those of 100 others, via Apple’s online storage system iCloud. The 60-odd pictures of Lawrence in varying stages of undress were then posted on the bulletin board website 4chan. More than 100 A-list celebrities are alleged to have been targeted, including reality TV star Kim Kardashian, singer Rihanna, models Candice Swanepoel, Cara Delevingne and Kelly Brook, and

I guess he really was multitasking out on the golf course. The President’s team has been hard at work behind the scenes, coming up with a strategy … well, maybe we should say plan, to address the nation’s many challenges. Spurred by President Obama’s climate action plan, the Department of Energy is pumping out new standards for refrigerators, dishwashers, air conditioners, ceiling fans, furnaces, boilers, water heaters, lamps and many more appliances. The administration says the standards will not only help the planet but also stimulate the economy by saving consumers money on their energy bills that they can spend elsewhere. After what

Biff Matthews is up to his eyeballs in knuckle busters. The 68-year-old Ohio businessman has stockpiled more than 8,000 of the old-fashioned credit-card-processing machines, known for their tendency to scrape the fingers of the merchants who operate them. Mr. Matthews keeps the machines boxed up individually on the shelves of his 12,000-square-foot warehouse, ready to be shipped at a moment´s notice. He has enough spare parts to assemble another 2,000 if need be. "I´m not going to run out," he says. There is little danger of that happening soon. Knuckle busters were overtaken more than two decades ago by electronic card-processing devices as the

WASHINGTON — Voters hate Washington, and they’ll get their chance to shake things up in November’s midterm elections. The big question is whether the Republicans can win control of the Senate while holding the House of Representatives, which would give them the entire Congress for the remaining two years of Barack Obama’s presidency and set the stage for the 2016 elections. At stake this fall are 36 of the Senate’s 100 seats, all 435 House seats and 36 governorships. Republicans start with a decided edge: – The most vulnerable Democrats are in states Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney won two years ago; – Republicans are

WASHINGTON — A 16-year-old Bobby Kennedy, with all four front teeth chipped from playing football, was planning to head home from Milton Academy for the weekend. Writing before the Kennedy family experienced a series of tragic deaths, there was a fatalistic side to his thoughts. “I’m going home this weekend to see my brother Jack who is now going into PT boats,” Kennedy wrote to one of his friends, “so I’m getting out to see him because he might be killed any minute.” The letter is part of two separate batches of newly revealed correspondence — one series written by Robert F.

During the Great Depression, the Communist scribes at the Daily Worker were forever assuring the more skeptical among their colleagues that the heroic spark was near. Having read about a “small riot somewhere in rural Minnesota,” Whittaker Chambers recorded in Witness, Robert Minor started shouting about “the beginning of the American revolution.” If the paper wished to capitalize upon dissatisfaction and spin it into insurrection and change, Minor proposed, it would need the staff to keep an eye out for the tell-tale sign and, then, to “play it up big.” Over the past month, the events in Ferguson, Mo., have played

Customers are suing Whole Foods Market for “vastly understating” the amount of sugar in its store-brand yogurt. A class-action lawsuit filed Friday in Manhattan federal court cites six tests by Consumer Reports in a July report on the supermarket chain’s Whole Foods 365 Everyday Value Plain Greek Yogurt, revealing it actually contains 11.4 grams of sugar per 170-gram serving instead of the 2 grams listed on the label. “Defendant’s act in vastly understating the sugar content .?.?. is not harmless trivia,” the suit says. “For many members of the class, sugar content is an important component of their diet.” The suit, involving about

President Obama gave an important press conference today and even took questions from the press, but all of this was overshadowed by the fact that Obama debuted one of the ugliest suits in the history of this great nation. The gist of Obama´s statement was that we don´t have a strategy to defeat ISIL in Syria yet. He also touched on Ukraine/Russia relations and the child migrant crisis. But instead of debating the validity of our foreign policy in the Middle East, Eastern Europe or Central America, Twitter abandoned its usually academic tone to focus on whether the tan (or

Could feminists stop encouraging women to see themselves as victims? Consider the story told us by one Emma Sullivan, a high-achieving young woman who was featured in a photo in the Gainesville Sun. This upset her greatly. The nature of her complaint is somewhat unclear. She was speaking at an annual gathering of “young professionals, emerging leaders, and grassroots community, education, government, and business leaders” called the iG Forum. She said she was honored to be chosen to speak there and was very excited to share the story of her company, which helps other companies market to college students. This is

On TV, incompetence is funny, sometimes hilarious. Jackie Gleason made a career of it on the old “Honeymooners” show; Tom Haverford is absurdly incapable on “Parks and Recreation”; and Michael Scott brought the Peter Principle to new heights in “The Office.” But in real life, incompetence can be dangerous, even life-threatening (think a real-life Homer Simpson actually in charge of safety at a nuclear power plant). That’s where America finds itself nearly six years into the presidency of Barack Obama. There’s no question Mr. Obama has all but checked out. There’s just no way to explain the president’s decision to

Some time ago I contrasted the reaction a conservative would get if he were in the same room with the two most consequential politicians of the 1990s, Bill Clinton and Rudy Giuliani. If you were in a room with Bill Clinton, he would discover the one issue out of 100 on which you agreed; he would probe you with questions, comments, suggestions; and he would tell you that you enabled him to understand it far better than he ever had before. If you were in a room with Rudy Giuliani, he would discover the one issue out of 100 on which you

Because I am a black conservative, someone wrote asking me this great question. “What is it that compels some black men and women to cling to, and follow people like Sharpton, Jackson, Wright, Obama, Spike Lee, Black Panthers, Holder, etc.?” I have pondered the same question. Some black folks embrace victim status because it provides cover for their laziness and irresponsible lifestyles. Black Judases preach a false, evil gospel of victimhood-ism for profit. Some blacks are racist, pure and simple. I believe that a majority of black Americans simply have not been exposed to unfiltered conservatism – to blacks articulating how blessed they

The federal government is still seeking answers as to why the majority of lesbians are obese and U.S. taxpayers are footing the bill, which now totals $2.87 million. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014. The project seeks to determine why “nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians overweight or obese,” and why gay males are not. In just two years the project’s budget has nearly doubled, growing from $1.5 million to nearly $3 million today, despite fears that sequestration could jeopardize the project and other NIH funding.

A federal study to determine why 75 percent of lesbian women are obese and gay men are not has totaled nearly $3 million. The National Institutes of Health study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014, for a total cost of $2.87 million, the Washington Free Beacon reported. Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital have come to several conclusions since studying “the striking interplay of gender and sexual orientation in obesity disparities,” which is slated to last until 2016. They have determined that gay and bisexual males had a “greater desire for toned muscles” than straight men, lesbians have lower

Between 1970 and 1990, the population of Philadelphia shrank by a quarter, dropping from 1.95 to 1.59 million. Like many American cities, it seemed caught in a downward spiral. Since then – like many American cities – Philadelphia has stabilized. The population now appears to have bottomed out at the millennium, and has been regaining residents over the past decade. But as it rebounds, Philly is becoming a different kind of city. In the two most recent decades, which comprise the bounce of the city’s population curve, owner-occupied housing dropped even more steeply than in the ’70s and ’80s. Between 2000 and

Short of world war, it’s rare that a chief executive goes through a foreign policy month like President Obama’s August. U.S. warplanes struck in Iraq for the first time in years, as U.S. diplomats struggled to establish a new government in Baghdad. Islamic State militants beheaded an American journalist in Syria and spread their reach across the Middle East. War raged between Israel and Hamas in Gaza. In Afghanistan, U.S. plans for an orderly exit at the end of the year teetered on the brink of disaster. Russia all but invaded Ukraine and dared Obama to stop it. Libya descended
