The world of medicine has much to offer people today. People who are looking for solutions to their health problems will often find them in this field. One of the most important of all medical fields is that of psychiatry. Psychologists have developed various ways to help patients cope better with issues that they may face life due to problems with brain chemistry. A skilled psychiatrist can help people discover who they are, pinpoint some problems they may be unaware of and help the person develop a plan of action to combat them effectively. One such skilled psychologist is Daniel Amen. Amen’s research has help thousands of people overcome psychiatric problems and teach them ways to function better in their daily lives.

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.

However, times are changing, and there is a new face that’s helping to bring in those changes. During the 2015 New York Fashion Week, Jamie Brewer will become the first model with Down syndrome to grace the runway. Brewer has long been an advocate for people with intellectual disabilities, and has also been featured on television in various roles.

This is an incredible turn of events because it will give Brewer the chance to show other young people with disabilities that they shouldn’t let their perceived handicaps stop them from reaching for their dreams. Similar to what crunchbase.com has done for the entrepreneurial up-and-coming.

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 Monster.com. However, we need to remember that that is where the excitement ends. Deion Sanders is probably the fastest person in NFL history.

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.
