Tattoo Removal as Simple as Wiping on a Cream

Tattoos used to be a rare site, other than those you saw on the arms of war veterans. Today though, it seems everyone has at least one. Some are pieces of well-done art, others, not so much. If you were unfortunate enough to get inked during a mindless, drunken moment, or soberly received a tattoo from an artist who couldn’t spell, your options are painfully limited for eliminating it. Either endure another tattoo cover-up to fix an error, or suffer through expensive and painful laser removal.

Well, good news tattoo nightmare sufferers. A college student at Nova Scotia’s Dalhousie University is working on an inexpensive and painless solution. A cream composed of simple chemicals that free the cells in which the permanent dyes attach themselves to results in the unwanted tattoo fading away. The designer of this topical cream, Alex Falkenham, says when the user applies the ointment, the tattoo disappears, as the immune system flushes the dyes from their system.

In comparison to numerous laser removal sessions that can cost thousands of dollars, Falkenham estimates that his cream removal method would only cost about $4.50 to remove a 3.9 x 3.9 inch sized tattoo, which is pretty cheap if you ask Guimaraes. With further testing, he hopes to soon have the means to remove traditional ink tattoos that is as simple and painless as eliminating a child’s temporary tattoo.

New York Fashion Week Welcomes Its First Model With Down Syndrome


The modeling world has long been considered notoriously selective concerning the type of people who will be allowed to showcase fashions for all to see. Female models, in particular, are held to a strict standard of thinness, with some models appearing so skinny that it borders on unhealthiness.

Similar to what has done for the entrepreneurial up-and-coming. Watching her stride down the runway with power and grace will certainly send the thrill of hope to anyone who has ever wanted to be more than their situation.

Germans Come Together To Make The Combine More Interesting


Adidas is a German shoe manufacturer, and that is worth nothing because most people do not realize they are German. They are a sister company to Puma which is run by a distant cousin of the owners of Adidas. They are keeping the German in the combine by giving away a Porsche to the top three runners in the 40-yard dash.

When these cars are given out, it will be a great day for these kids. Someone who is completely obscure could walk away with a brand new car said However, we need to remember that that is where the excitement ends. Deion Sanders is probably the fastest person in NFL history. Bob Hayes is likely second, and you can debate the rest from there. However, most people who run fast times in the 40 are just running fast times.

We put too much stock in these stats as it is because it does not translate to the field. Jerry Rice has a 40 time so slow that he would probably not even be signed today. Keep that in mind for the combine, but please do applaud the gentleman who is able to win a brand new Porsche for having his own set of fast wheels.
