Really bold colour which appears to be good on hair.Great spray but you will want 2 if you have lengthy hair.But aside from that its a enjoyable hairspray.I genuinely favored it, especially the colour. But the only problem i experienced is that it arrived out on my apparel. I created sure although making use of it to my hair that it was no the place in close proximity to my clothing but since of the duration of my hair the spray rubbed off on the materials fortunately not staining it. Far better for brief hair, never the less a superior merchandise.Its alright, but looking at as i have a fairly light-weight coloured blonde hair and the whole can only gave me a refined purple i would invest in two bottles following time. As it states on the can it washes out soon after very first use (after two-three shampoos i would advise) and fyi really don’t have on any top rated u like with this in as it receives quite considerably in all places if you contact it.Wasn’t overly amazed with this. The colour did not exhibit up a lot & it remaining the hair quite sticky.Purchased this as portion of my son’s purple minion costume. It can be extremely very good and addresses the hair nicely. It lasted for two halloween activities. Spray in and clean out easily with drinking water and shampoo. Does specifically what it says on the tin. Spray in and wash out effortlessly with drinking water and shampoo :).Colour arrived out alright but not incredible, the bottle was more compact then i considered but. Colour came out alright but not wonderful, the bottle was lesser then i considered but include all my hair with a thin layer, if you have prolonged hair or thick hair, i advocate 2 or three bottles.Brilliant and so rapid supply thankyou.Here are the specifications for the Stargazer Colour Hair Spray:A temporary hair colour, which can be appliedwith ease and washed out in one wash.Arrived on time which was fantastic bring about required it for purple day at college for my minor boy he looked excellent did the career.Like this spray, demonstrates up on nearly black hair and reveals up quite vibrant.Reviews from purchasers :I’d buy 2 bottlesColour came out alright but not amazing, the bottle was smaller then I thought but spray in and wash out easily with water and shampoofun and good price
Families of two Dalit children who were allegedly killed for defecating in the open in Bhavkhedi village in Shivpuri district would be moved into two houses in the city, Congress leader Jyotiradtiya Scindia has said.“I had promised them that I will leave the village only after settling them in Shivpuri,” Mr. Scindia told reporters. “For now, they have been moved into two temporary houses having a room, a kitchen and a courtyard each…Nothing can cure the deep wounds the family has suffered. But being people’s servants, the least we can do is bring them succour,” he said. The construction of permanent houses would at least take a month, Mr. Scindia told the family. “I am going to pay ₹5 – 5.5 lakh from my own pocket for it,” he added. Besides, he said, adult members of the family would be given employment, and children their education. “Both the families will start staying at the houses from tomorrow,” Mr. Scindia tweeted on Monday, after meeting the families.Two houses had been arranged for the families, he said, besides ensuring their adult members employment and children their education. The houses would be allotted to them under a government scheme, District Deputy Collector Manoj Garwal told The Hindu. “As for a job, we will have to see what kind of work they will be able to do. Most probably, it will be a daily wage job,” he said. Besides, Mr. Scindia on Monday wrote to Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath appealing to him to provide lifetime support to the families as they “belonged to the Dalit community” and were “poor”.Requesting assistance on humanitarian ground, he said both the families should be given 10 ‘bigha’ land each. Moreover, “immediate financial support of ₹50 lakh each for the affected families was important”.On September 25, as the two children were defecating in the open along a village road, two Yadav men struck lathis on their heads, killing them. They were later arrested.During an interaction with Mr. Scindia, the father of one of the victims pleaded with him for a house outside the village. “I am going mad here. I may consume poison. I want justice,” he said. The father of one of the victims had earlier told The Hindu the family had lived in fear since then and had decided to leave the village fearing intimidation by the family of the accused.“I don’t see people of my region on religious or caste lines. Only a cruel person could commit something like this… I cannot believe someone in my region could even think of doing something like this,” Mr. Scindia told the father.

philosophy, the women’s wellbeing beauty brand, is collaborating with Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Natasha Bedingfield on an exclusive, original song to spread hope to women everywhere.The song, “hope,” penned by Natasha and a new writing and production team made up of Matt Robinson, David Saw and Ryan Freeman, was written to draw attention to the mental health needs of women and further the message of the hope and grace initiative — an unending commitment by philosophy to support community-based mental health organizations. Releasing simultaneously with the product launch of renewed hope in a jar, “hope” will be available for download on iTunes on January 13th with 20% of the net proceeds from iTunes sales benefitting the hope and grace initiative until 2016.By encouraging and promoting the idea of hope when faced with any adversity, this original song clearly captures the spirit of philosophy. For over 18 years, philosophy has been devoted to bringing women products that inspire them to live better lives. Most recently, in July 2014, philosophy launched the hope and grace initiative, the cornerstone of the brand’s philanthropic mission wherein 1% of philosophy product sales across all retailers support community-based organizations working to empower women through the promotion of mental health and wellbeing, and the prevention and treatment of related issues.“At philosophy, we believe that it is important to nurture the skin as well as the soul, and music offers a powerful way to lift spirits and spread a message,” says Jill Scalamandre, Senior Vice President, philosophy and Chief Marketing Officer, skin care for Coty. “The philosophy of renewed hope in a jar is ‘live with optimism, renew with hope,’ a sentiment that not only ties perfectly to this beautiful song, but also to the hope and grace initiative’s mission of helping lift the stigma that surrounds mental health.”“philosophy understands the power of words, and as a songwriter this resonates deeply with me,” says Natasha. “I was thrilled to collaborate with philosophy on the song and to help raise awareness about mental health, particularly among women. This song is about how powerful hope is and that we all need to be reminded sometimes of how even the darkest nights become bright mornings, and hope can carry us through any hardship.”To celebrate the release of “hope,” which is named for its reimagined iconic product, renewed hope in a jar, philosophy will host a special event where Natasha will perform “hope” live for the first time. The performance will be simulcast via Livestream as part of a larger digital media campaign that will further promote the renewed hope in a jar product and the hope and grace initiative.Changing the landscape of philanthropic efforts in the beauty industry, the hope and grace initiative established the hope and grace fund as a project of the New Venture Fund, a 501c3 public charity dedicated to supporting innovative and effective public interest projects. With guidance from an advisory board made up of committed and notable leaders in the mental health arena, philosophy will annually award multiple grants with an average amount of $25,000 through the hope and grace fund to support hundreds of qualified organizations around the world.In its first year, the fund plans to target organizations that work with women in the United States who are currently underserved by mental health services by providing grants to community-based mental health organizations. These unsung heroes of the mental health field include those organizations that are working to overcome the barriers and stigma associated with seeking treatment for mental health issues, providing access to mental health treatment, and fostering support networks for women with mental illness.Join the movement at hopeandgracefund.com.

Source:https://www.mcgill.ca/newsroom/channels/news/anti-tb-drugs-can-increase-risk-tb-re-infection-295658 Reviewed by Kate Anderton, B.Sc. (Editor)Mar 22 2019Current treatments for tuberculosis (TB) are very effective in controlling TB infection caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb). They don’t, however, always prevent reinfection. Why this happens is one of the long-standing questions in TB research.So why are our bodies unable to generate permanent immunity to TB, – the leading infectious disease killer worldwide? A team of scientists at the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI-MUHC) and McGill University may have found the answer… in the gut. In a study published recently in Mucosal Immunology, they showed that anti-TB drugs caused changes to gut microbiota – the diverse community of microbes living our intestines — and increased susceptibility to Mtb infection.Gut microbiota are critical to keeping us healthy; they help to digest food, combat pathogenic microbes and reinforce our immune system. Recent research has shown that chronic use of antibiotic leads to disruption of this community, which can in turn lead to dysregulation of the immune system. It remains unclear, however, whether changes in the composition of the microbes living in our gut have an influence on TB infection.Impact of anti-TB drugs on microbiome To find out, Drs. Irah King and Maziar Divangahi from the Meakins-Christie Laboratories at the RI-MUHC, with colleagues from McGill’s Macdonald Campus, treated mice with the most commonly used anti-TB drugs – isoniazid, rifampicin and pyrazinamide – for a period of eight weeks. They found that while all three drugs significantly altered the composition of the mice’s gut microbiome, only mice treated with isoniazid combined with pyrazinamide showed an increase in susceptibility to Mtb infection.To make sure the vulnerability of the host to Mtb infection was due to a compromised gut microbiota, the researchers looked at… feces. By transplanting feces from mice that had been treated with anti-TB drugs (specifically isoniazid and pyrazinamide) into untreated mice prior to infection, they were able to show for the first time that fecal transplant was sufficient to compromise immunity to Mtb.Related StoriesScientists discover how resistance to the chemotherapy drug 5-fluorouracil arisesArtificial DNA can help release active ingredients from drugs in sequenceA Portable Solution for the On-scene Identification of KratomRelationship between the gut microbiome and the lungsKing and his colleagues also wanted to better understand the gut-lung axis – a bidirectional communication system between microorganisms residing in the gastrointestinal tract and the lungs – in order to how this might be involved in Mtb infection and immunity.To do so, they evaluated a number of lung cell types known to be important for resistance to Mtb infection. Following anti-TB treatment, alveolar macrophages, a type of immune cell located in the airways of mice and humans and the first cell to encounter Mtb upon infection, were compromised in their ability to kill Mtb.”We need to do more research in order to understand how the microbiome affects alveolar macrophages because these cells are critical for controlling early TB infection. We also need to identify the molecular pathways involved in the gut-lung axis,” explains King.”Anti-TB therapies have been incredibly efficient in controlling the TB epidemic by decreasing morbidity and mortality associated with Mtb,” says King. “Now, this work provides a basis for novel therapeutic strategies exploiting the gut-lung axis in Mtb infection.”Researchers are already thinking of monitoring patients who are being treated with these drugs to see how their gut microbiota changes over time and once treatment has stopped. The idea will be to control changes to the microbiome in combination with drugs that are effective at killing Mtb.
At any national conference you attend now, burnout is the hot topic because it is worsening across the board. For a doctor, a health care system or medical school, the shared goal is to provide better patient care, but burnout negatively affects the quality of care provided. The purpose of our study is to bring back cheer and meaning in the clinical learning environment that can lead to better resident well-being and patient outcomes.”Prof. Dr. Prasanna Tadi, Creighton University’s School of Medicine Burnout reduces patient satisfaction, as well as physician productivity and effort, and it increases medical errors, turnover and medical costs. It is pervasive throughout the entire health care spectrum, Dr. Tadi said. A unique aspect of the Creighton study is its wide reach. In addition to residents and physicians, medical students, pharmacists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, dentists and nurses will participate in the study. Their well-being will be measured by the Mayo Clinic Resident/Fellow Well-Being Index score from July 2019 to June 2021. Study analysis will be provided semiannually to ACGME.”Our hope is that with this study we will be able to show improvement in multiple areas of well-being and relieve the pressures physicians are facing,” Dr. Tadi said. “We are trying to change the culture of patient care locally, but it has the potential to make a big impact across multiple disciplines nationally.”Related StoriesAMSBIO offers new, best-in-class CAR-T cell range for research and immunotherapyStudy estimates health care costs of uncontrolled asthma in the U.S. over next 20 yearsAn active brain and body associated with reduced risk of dementiaCreighton University’s C.H.E.E.R. study is intended to improve residents’ clinical learning environments by involving them in the process through a series of three interventions – C.H.E.E.R. Rounds, C.H.E.E.R. Meetings and C.H.E.E.R. Emails.Rounds – A central intervention in which each of Creighton’s hospital medicine services (HMS) teams will select one patient with a complex medico-social background for a half-hour of screen-free time at the patient’s bedside. The patient’s family is invited to bring personal photos of the patient to facilitate conversation and learn about the patient’s social background, hobbies and interests. The patient’s understanding of his/her health conditions and challenges in accessing health care will be discussed and all of the participating HMS teams will provide input. The goal of this first intervention is to cultivate a deeper resident-patient connection, enhance resident autonomy and interdisciplinary communication during these weekly sessions.Meeting – The second intervention lasts 60 minutes, occurs monthly, and each letter of the C.H.E.E.R. acronym represents a part of the meeting format:C – Celebrate – Patients celebrate their success and share their progress with residents.H – Hearing – Residents hear the patient’s journey through hospitalization and review areas for improvement.E – Expertise – Experts converse with residents regarding a specific wellness topic.E – Engage – Residents engage by sharing their own ideas on the wellness topic.R – Recharge – Residents discuss implementation of these ideas into their daily lives.Emails – The third intervention involves twice monthly CHEER emails being sent to house staff and faculty, including information about upcoming CHEER meetings and recognizing the personal and professional accomplishments of the residents.”Medical organizations throughout the country are prioritizing evidence-based research on this topic, and our study is designed to establish a long-term connection with the patients, who are the reason we entered into the medical profession in the first place,” Dr. Tadi said. Source:Creighton University Reviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Jul 2 2019Patients see physicians to address issues with their well-being, but a new study by Creighton University’s School of Medicine will investigate if increasing time spent at bedside with patients increases the well-being of the health care professional, too. The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) awarded Creighton University’s School of Medicine a grant for its C.H.E.E.R. Study: Bringing Cheer Back to the Bedside.Creighton is one of 30 organizations in the nation that had a project selected for ACGME’s Back to Bedside grant is a resident-led initiative that aims to empower the medical community to increase time with patients within a health care environment in which patient care and academic learning is more commonly occurring away from the patient’s bedside. Creighton’s C.H.E.E.R. project will be overseen by Dr. Prasanna Tadi, a Professor in Creighton University’s School of Medicine and neurologist with CHI Health who mentored the development of the study. Dr. Janani Baskaran is principal investigator of the project, which will facilitate some of the first research into how to address “physician burnout,” a priority issue in the national medical community.According to the National Academy of Medicine, burnout among physicians is nearly two times as high among United States physicians compared to any other field. More concerning, 400 physicians commit suicide every year, a rate that is more than double that of the general population.
