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

Associated Press, by Lindsey Tanner

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.

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.

Lauderdale County, Miss. One of the most incendiary charges made following Mississippi´s U.S. Senate runoff in June was that Sen. Thad Cochran´s campaign participated in paying for black votes. Cochran defeated state Sen. Chris McDaniel, who led a 3-person ballot in the first GOP Primary. (Snip)The subpoena says Johnson is to bring "any and all records regarding the interview of Stevie Fielder and/or regarding the payment of an interview fee to Stevie Fielder as well as any records regarding his conversation and dealings with John Rhodes and/or Noel Fritsch.

What Taxpayers Pay When Eric Holder
Uses Government Jets For Personal Trips
Daily Caller, by Alex Pappas    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 8/12/2014 5:19:56 AM     Post Reply
On a pleasant Saturday this summer, Eric Holder, his daughters, their boyfriends and two security officers boarded a government-owned Gulfstream and jetted off to New York for the Belmont Stakes Thoroughbred horse race. Even for personal trips like this, the attorney general doesn’t fly commercial. For security reasons, Holder — like other top government officials — flies a government plane, though is required to reimburse taxpayers for airfare. According to records obtained by The Daily Caller through a Freedom of Information Act request, Holder is getting pretty good deal here — especially when he flies a government-owned Gulfstream V jet.

Nothing Hillary Clinton is now saying

Hillary Clinton’s recent efforts to distance herself from President Obama’s foreign policy may be generating a lot of attention, but nothing she is now saying about foreign policy will matter in the future. If history has taught us anything, especially when it comes to foreign policy, it’s that Clinton doesn’t have positions — she has positioning. When she wanted to appear tough on national security in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks, Clinton happily voted in favor of authorizing President George W. Bush to launch a war against Iraq. But once opinion of the war turned sour – especially within the

   

 

  


 
North Carolina´s nondescript, virtually

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Thom Tillis thought his last day as Speaker of the North Carolina House would be weeks ago, after which he would devote all his energies to running for the U.S. Senate. Instead, on Saturday morning, August 2, Tillis stood gavel in hand in the state House chamber, presiding over the passage of a budget that kept lawmakers at work well into the summer. Now, finally, he is finished -- unless something else comes up to demand his time at the State Legislative Building. Republicans have bemoaned the fact that their candidate was tied down in the state house,

Rick Silva began his investigation at the end of an alley, on a hot day in L.A.´s Westlake community. Driving down a busy thoroughfare, he spied water runoff on a sidewalk. The manager replied that the runoff was from the cleaning of barrels for sanitation purposes. He added that the facility used water-saving pressure hoses for the job. Silva smiled. The place checked out. Silva is a water cop in the city´s Water Conservation Response Unit. While other kinds of investigators follow fingerprints or eyewitness accounts, Silva follows the water, patrolling the streets of Los Angeles in search of wasteful

As we reported earlier, the community in Ferguson, Missouri, was outraged after an unarmed teenager was shot and killed by police. Protests reached a crescendo Sunday night that broke into violence, looting, and reports of gun shots. Police responded with tear gas, and have arrested many, but for many hours into the evening, several stores were left to the mercy of opportunistic looters. Social media caught much of the chaos: (videos, photos)

Obama’s Economy In Action!
Data Shows Cash For Clunkers
Was An Epic Debacle
Daily Caller, by Eric Owens    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 8/10/2014 5:26:38 AM     Post Reply
“Cash for Clunkers,” the 2009 Obama administration stimulus program designed to spend $2.85 billion to jumpstart the auto industry, turned out to be a complete disaster — for the auto industry. In the minds of Obama’s team of advisers and economists, the program made total sense, of course. The plan was to dangle a $4,500 credit to persuade car owners to trade in their older automobiles for new cars with better fuel efficiency. It would stimulate an economy then in the midst of a deep recession. As a bonus, it would mean less oil consumption and cleaner-running cars. The law of unintended

A Bug Is Making People Allergic To Meat,
And Doctors Don´t Know If It´s Permanent

A bug can turn you into a vegetarian, or at least make you swear off red meat. Doctors across the nation are seeing a surge of sudden meat allergies in people bitten by a certain kind of tick. This bizarre problem was only discovered a few years ago but is growing as the ticks spread from the Southwest and the East to more parts of the United States. In some cases, eating a burger or a steak has landed people in the hospital with severe allergic reactions. Few patients seem aware of the risk, and even doctors are slow to recognize it.

How one man destroyed the Food

culinary TV into a viewer’s hell
Salon, by Farsh Askari    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 8/9/2014 10:32:49 AM     Post Reply
For me, watching the Food Network was always an easy escape from the stresses of daily life. There was just something calming about watching chefs in action, and this network had perfected Zen cooking. They’d often use a natural-light filter that made food appear delectable, as if the chefs were blissfully cooking their culinary delights in the sunlit designer kitchen of a tastefully decorated, impeccable home somewhere in the Hamptons. (Well, with Ina Garten, that actually is the case.) I’ve never been anywhere near a sunlit designer kitchen in the Hamptons, but I still found it all oddly soothing. I’d

Speaking at the U.S.-Africa Summit earlier this week, Secretary of State John Kerry had a bit of astonishing advice for African leaders. While noting that Africa faces a starvation problem, he also admonished its leaders not to create more farms. The reason? Adding more farms would contribute to “global warming.” Yeah, he really said that: “Certain agricultural processes can actually release carbon pollution and actually contribute to the problem in the first place. It’s a twisted circle. Always complicated. But we also know that there are certain ways to change that. For example, rather than convert natural areas to new farmland, a process

An ill Navy skipper allegedly shirked his duties by holing up in his cabin on a San Diego-based cruiser for weeks on end — effectively leaving his crew leaderless. Capt. Gregory W. Gombert was also having an inappropriate relationship with the warship´s acting executive officer, Lt. Cmdr. Destiny Savage, according to a recent Navy investigation. The "unduly familiar" relationship disturbed much of the USS Cowpens´ 330-member crew, authorities said. The results of the investigation, which were reported in U-T San Diego, show that Gombert´s ailments should not have prevented him from leading the ship from early January until March. "The

The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.” Williams, who won an Oscar for his supporting role in Good Will Hunting, will reprise his role as Theodore Roosevelt in the third installment of Night at the Museum this December.

The decision by Sen. John Walsh (D-Mont.) not to seek election in November in the wake of a plagiarism scandal is the latest piece of good news for Republicans as they strive to take control of the Senate in less than three months. Walsh’s departure from the race came in the same week that two Republican senators — Pat Roberts in Kansas and Lamar Alexander in Tennessee — defeated tea party challengers in primary fights, ensuring that every GOP senator seeking reelection would be the party’s nominee. These past seven days typified the fates of the two parties this election

The president who spent years touting the withdrawal of all U.S. forces from Iraq suddenly has had to distance himself from that action. At the White House on Saturday morning — less than 48 hours after authorizing airstrikes against Islamist militants and humanitarian air drops to save the lives of trapped Iraqi civilians — President Obama blamed his predecessor, George W. Bush, for the absence of American troops in Iraq and rejected the assertion that he could have left a small peacekeeping force in the war-torn nation. He uttered those after three years, and a successful re-election campaign, in which

President Obama must really be teed off. Hillary Rodham Clinton, his once-loyal secretary of state and his likeliest successor, has gone rogue, criticizing his foreign policy as too timid. Obama responded with not one but two rounds of golf. Clinton, in an interview with Jeffrey Goldberg published by the Atlantic over the weekend, offered a withering comment on the Obama doctrine, described in shorthand by White House officials as “don’t do stupid [expletive].” Said Clinton: “Great nations need organizing principles, and ‘Don’t do stupid stuff’ is not an organizing principle.” As the criticism became public, Obama was doggedly sticking with

It didn´t take long for Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) to embrace amnesty again. As soon as he won his Senate primary election against conservative Joe Carr, Alexander said it was "embarrassing" that Republicans have not yet passed a bill. Never mind that Alexander spent nearly his entire primary campaign trying to convince voters that he was against "amnesty" and would never dare to embrace it before the primary election. “I don’t know how it will affect our politics in the near term," Alexander told Politico of a comprehensive immigration bill. “I think it’s embarrassing for us not to deal with the problem, and

Hillary Clinton and congressmen alike have called on Obama to arm Syria’s rebels. But the president fumed at lawmakers in a private meeting for suggesting he should’ve done more. President Obama got angry at lawmakers who suggested in a private meeting that he should have armed the Syrian rebels, calling the criticism “horseshit.” The argument that America should have done more in Syria, made for years by foreign policy leaders in both parties and several members of Obama’s senior national security team, was brought back to the fore this past weekend.

An Isis commander at a terrorist training camp north of Baghdad accidentally detonated a belt packed with explosives during a demonstration in front of a group militants on Monday, killing himself and 21 nearby trainees. The accident was a source of dark humour for locals, with suicide attacks in public spaces having become an almost daily occurrence in Iraq. A bomber struck a falafel shop near the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Baghdad last week, and when told of the bungled training demonstration by the New York Times, Raad Hashim, who works at a liquor store near the site of
