This week Dr. Roarty of Scally McDaid Roarty Medical Practice discusses a common skin condition seen in every GP practice.First of all, there are no worms, even if the name suggests otherwise! Ringworm is an infection of the skin which is caused by a fungus.As discussed in earlier articles fungi can infect the nails but also the skin or the hair. It is passed from person to person for example by touching someone who has the infection, or their towels, clothes or bedclothes etc. Even inanimate objects such as chairs can pass the infection if someone who has ringworm has been in contact with it. Ringworm is also a zoonotic disease which means that it can be passed from animal to humans. Dogs, cats and other small furry’s can have fungal infections as well as farm animals such as cattle.If you suspect your pet may be the culprit take them to the vet for treatment also. Touching farm gates where cattle with ringworm have brushed against may be sufficient to pick up the infection.It is also possible to pick up fungal infections from the soil, though this is rarer.What are the symptoms? The infection tends to develop from a small area of infected skin which spreads outwards. This usually appears like a rounded inflamed red area which is more inflamed and scaly towards the outside and paler towards the centre (thus the ring part in the name). The patch may be single or there may be multiple patches ( more likely multiple if you picked it up from handling an infected animal) and gets bigger over time. It is usually itchy and annoying. Sometime other skin rashes may look a bit like ringworm eg psoriasis.So how is it treated Doctor?Generally, we advise keeping the affected area clean and dry and avoid sharing towels etc. Hard as it might be, we should try to avoid scratching as this may spread the infection.Antifungal creams may be obtained over the counter or on prescription. It is important to follow the application frequency accurately as some are once a day while others twice or even three times a day.It is also important to continue the treatment for the full duration advised, even if your infection appears to be starting to clear. Some creams are not advised for children.If the skin is very inflamed your doctor may also prescribe a mild steroid cream to help settle the inflammation for the first week of treatment.Antifungal tablets are sometimes prescribed if the infection is quite bad or widespread.Again children may not be able to take certain tablets or women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. People with certain medical conditions such as liver disease or chronic lung disease may not be able to take anti-fungal tablets. Once treatment has been started it is not necessary to avoid school or work.The above information is intended as advice only and should you have any concerns please contact your own Doctor.Dr Ciarán Roarty MB, BCh BAO MICGP DRCOG Grad.

Upcoming EntertainmentThe following films are being shown aboard the Disney Cruise Line ships this month:Captain MarvelDumbo Disneynature: PenguinsAvengers: EndgameAladdin Toy Story 4 Lion KingThe Nightmare Before ChristmasFor future reference, films debut on Disney Cruise Line the same day of their initial release in the United States. Films do vary by ship. Show times are available in your Personal Navigator or the official Disney Cruise Line app.Captain’s Log: Important Tips and InformationSince yesterday was Talk Like a Pirate Day, let’s talk about Pirate Night on DCL! Pirates in the Caribbean night takes place on most sailings. While it’s not limited to just the Caribbean (you’ll be able to get your pirate on in the Mediterranean if you’d like), you won’t see this on your itinerary in Alaska, for example.During the day, you’ll notice the background music has taken on a Pirate theme, as well as activities like family crafts, trivia, and kids club fun. Check the Navigator, as you find meet and greets scheduled with some of your favorite scallywags, like Captain Hook or Jack Sparrow. If you feel like you’ve got your own inner pirate that’s just dying to be let out, now is your chance! Pirate dress up is allowed and definitely encouraged, but never required. Your stateroom host will leave pirate bandanas in your stateroom, which make a nice light accessory, in case hook hands and fishnets may not be your thing (though, both are great!). There’s plenty of opportunity to eat like a Pirate, with a themed menu served in the main dining room in most cruises, and a pirate buffet to end the evening. Up on deck, there won’t be any swabbing but lots of partying! Stage shows, dancing, and the world famous fireworks at sea make this night such a blast!Arrrrrrrrre you a pirate night fan? Tell me in the comments!Special thanks to Scott Sanders of the Disney Cruise Line Blog for assistance on this article.Thanks for joining me again this week. “Sea” you next time!The Disney Cruise Line Preview is brought to you by Storybook Destinations.

Four of them are WebTechnology-related and the other was an eBook that I bought.The Nudist on the Late Shift : And Other True Tales of Silicon Valley by Po Bronsonis a book I’ve been meaning to read for ages. I read his latest, What Should I DoWith My Life?, last year and that was an inspiring read. He’s one of the ‘newjournalism’ type writers that I so admire – Tom Wolfe and Micheal Lewis are my twofavourites in that genre (more on Wolfe below).Po Bronson started out with two novels and Nudist on the Late Shift was his thirdpublished book. He callsit “literary nonfiction” and it tells the tale of various Silicon Valley workers andcompanies. He covers some of the successful people – e.g. the guy who invented Hotmailand sold it for a heap of money to Microsoft. But he also writes about the strugglers –those who dream big but haven’t yet hit the jackpot. The chapter about Silicon Valleysalesmen best exemplified the strugglers.One of the most compelling parts of the book was his description of meeting Danny Hillis, the genuis computerprogrammer who created The Clock of the Long Now. [According to Wikipedia: “A clock builtto last 10,000 years or more, powered by seasonal climactic fluctuations. The clock isnot yet built, but a piece of land in rural Nevada has been purchased, the design iscompleted in detail, and construction of the components is underway.”]I also enjoyed Bronson’s descriptions of the Valley, because it’s my own personaldream to live and work there one day. Bronson described it as a hot and scenically unspectacular place. However it attracts a certain type of creative and ambitious person –and it’s this that drives the narrative of the book.My rating: 9/10. Nudist is a fantastic read and despite the cautionary tales, it onlymakes me want to visit Silicon Valley even more!amazon.com – Get Big Fast : Inside the Revolutionary Business Model That Changed theWorld, by Robert Spector is a biography of Jeff Bezos. It’s a nice business-orientedread, complete with “takeaways” at the end of each chapter (generic business lessons like“Always brace for competition and be ready to strike back”). I don’t think I learned muchnew about Bezos or Amazon. Spector had access to a couple of early employees, but notBezos himself – discounting an early interview he did with him.My rating: 6/10. It was a pleasant read but nothing to get too excited about.Movable Type 3.0 Bible Desktop Edition, by Rogers Cadenhead. I won a free copy ofthis from Rogers’weblog. I’ve leafed through it and it’s a comprehensive how-to for the latest versionof Movable Type. A lot of the early chapters are aimed at new bloggers, e.g. Ch 5 ‘Writinga weblog entry’, but there’s some meaty stuff for more experienced users later in thebook. I plan to test out some of the XML-RPC material in the coming weeks.My rating: 8/10. This is a very handy reference for me to have around (I’m an MT user)and the technical content in the second half of the book is something for me to get stuckinto when I get some time to tinker.Hackers and Painters: Big Ideas from the Computer Age, by Paul Graham. This is a bookthat seems to polarize people. Paul Graham writes opinionated essays and he gets under the wick of many programmers for his dismissal of languages like Java and… wellpretty much any programming language except for his beloved Lisp. Having said that, as anon-programmer I enjoyed the parts of Hackers and Painters that I could understand! (Igot through everything but a couple of chapters at the end about spam filtering and heavyduty programming).He wrote some interesting things about web-based applications, which is Web 2.0territory. e.g. on pg 58 he wrote: “The whole idea of ‘your computer’ is going away, andbeing replaced with ‘your data’.” Also on pgs 79-80 he wrote an excellent explanation ofthe transition from mainframes to desktops to the server – I highly recommend thatpassage.My rating: 7. An enjoyable read, but you’re likely to disagree with some parts ofit.I Am Charlotte Simmons, by Tom Wolfe. I read this via eBook and I promised I’d let youknow how the reading experience went. It was mostly good, but with some minor hassles readingvia a small PDA screen. The convenience of having the book always with me, as opposed to aheavy hardcover book, was a big plus. But it was a bit awkward sometimes reading thislong novel via my PDA – it’s summer over here in New Zealand right now, so the sunglinting on the screen was a problem sometimes. And that old issue of curling up in bedwith a good book – well, at times I did miss the comfort of a paper book. But those areminor quibbles. All in all, I was pleased with the ebook experience and I will buy moreebooks.As for the story itself, well as I mentioned above Tom Wolfe is one of my favouriteauthors. He pioneered ‘new journalism’ and is still one of the best Literary Non-fiction (and fiction) writers around. ‘I am Charlotte Simmons’ was a highly ambitious book for Wolfe. It is setin a university and the main character is a young very intelligent but socially naivesouthern girl. Other major characters include a white basketball star in a college teamdominated by black players, a frat boy involved in a scandel involving a senator, and anerdy college kid called Adam. About as far away from the life of Tom Wolfe, a man in his70’s who wears cream-coloured suits, as you can imagine. At times the dialogue seemed to get the better ofhim – e.g. he was ‘awarded’ the LiteraryReview’s annual Bad Sex award! – but to be fair at other times the dialogue andcharacters were utterly compelling. Tom Wolfe is a great writer, very strong on socialand moral themes, and overall I think he managed to do justice to this ambitiousproject.My rating: 8/10. If you’re a Tom Wolfe fan, this book won’t disappoint. Flawed in somerespects, but there’s more than enough evidence of Wolfe’s genius in this lengthynovel.

While YouTube and onlinevideo is all the rage currently, I often wonder if there’s anything on these videowebsites other than mentos-cokeexplosions and bad singing.Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy YouTube as much as the next person – but I am also a bitartsy-fartsy, so I like to see artistic stuff being done on the Web too. One such projectis Stray Cinema, which describes itself as “an opensource film project”.Stray Cinema invitespeople to create short films, based on raw footage that was filmed in London on a digitalcamera. The idea is that participants download the footage and edit parts of itinto their own 2 minute film. Links to freeediting software is provided – e.g. Avid, WindowsMovie Maker, Video EditMagic and Wax. The films are then uploaded onto YouTube and embedded into the Stray Cinemawebsite. Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Stray Cinema is also contacting independent musicians and bands, via social networkingsites like MySpace, to incorporate their music into the process.Once there are 30 film submissions on the website, the community of Stray Cinema userswill vote for their favourite films. The top 5 films will be screened in London alongsidethe directors cut. There will be VJ’s at the event, mixing film footage to live music.Also there will be a live audiovisual webcast, live web-chat, vodcasting and blogging.The date for the event is yet to be determined.Stray Cinema is aiming to be an annual event, repeating the process with raw footagefilmed in a different city each year. All of this is being run by 7 people and there are479 registered users. OK so it’s not a trendy startup with millions of users, but to mymind it’s excellent use of Web technologies. Check it out if you’re interested in filmand how web 2.0 technologies can be used to create and promote independentfilm-making. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#Video Services#web richard macmanus Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting

They profit from “free” email both by directly placing ads and by using the links and keywords in email to boost the effectiveness of their bread-and-butter search. So, their “free” email service buys them page views, a huge marketing channel and rich metadata that keeps them way ahead in search.Likewise, Flickr/Yahoo gives away free image space to attract 1) a huge community to which they can market stuff, 2) a massive volume of page views (i.e. ad revenue) based on user-generated content, and 3) a fantastic pool of tagged images that Yahoo can serve as search results.In this freeconomics world, startups still have a chance because startup costs are rock-bottom low. However, it is not enough to build a “killer app”. They have to build a “killer honey pot” that uniquely attracts workers/customers that generate the content that both attracts page view “honey” and (virally) more workers/customers.Is this bad or complex? Not really, just a different skillset. In this “honey pot” world, effective social architecture is more important than sheer quantity of application features. You don’t charge (or charge much) for the “application.” Instead, you harvest value out of the content/attention of your worker-bee customers.”bee image: bbum Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting

New Delhi: WhatsApp Global Head Will Cathcart on Wednesday said the company could roll out its payments service to users across India later this year. The messaging app, which has about 400 million users in India, has been testing its payments in the country since last year with about a million users. Cathcart said the company’s vision is to make sending money as easy as sending a message on the platform. “We believe that if we get this right, it will accelerate financial inclusion and bring value for people in India’s fast growing digital economy, We can’t wait to provide the service more of our users all across India later this year,” he said at an event here. Also Read – Swiggy now in 500 Indian cities, targets 100 more this year WhatsApp’s service, which would compete against the likes of Paytm, PhonePe and Google Pay, is yet to be rolled out nationally in India. The Facebook-owned company, which has over 1.5 billion users globally, is looking rolling out its payments service in other markets as well. WhatsApp’s ambitious payment services’ blueprint in India has been caught in a bind over concerns around authentication and its data storage practices. In the past, its home grown rivals have alleged that WhatsApp’s payment platform has security risks for consumers and is not in compliance with the guidelines. In October last year, WhatsApp had said it has developed a system to store payments-related data in India as part of compliance with the Reserve Bank of India’s policy on storing such data locally. In May this year, the messaging app had told the Supreme Court that its trial run is likely to be completed by July, and that it will not launch payments services without fully complying with the central bank norms.
OTTAWA – Any hope the Liberals had of a quiet Thanksgiving break melted away quickly this week, even with MPs back in their ridings and all the party leaders politicking in distant places.The hullabaloo over the government’s tax proposals degenerated into a head-scratcher, with the governing party having to revise, re-explain and eventually retract an obscure tax change on retail employees’ benefits that suddenly grabbed the public’s interest.After weeks of loud criticism over measures to crack down on the personal use of private corporations in order to pay lower taxes, news of the retail employees tax landed hard. The Liberals blamed the civil service at first, then moved to cancel it outright.While it’s still unclear whether slivers of that measure still exist, it is clear the government’s credibility on tax policy is under some intense pressure — coming to a head on Monday when Finance Minister Bill Morneau will appeal to Liberal MPs to support a rejigged tax-reform package that he hopes will be less contentious.Even with noise about taxes aside, the week in federal politics was loud, with developments around NAFTA, the future of energy and the fight for byelection voters in the Saguenay. Here’s how politics mattered this week:OUTRAGE OVER AUTOSTrade negotiators from Canada, the United States and Mexico are meeting for their fourth round of talks to revamp NAFTA, and Team USA is taking the negotiations to a whole new level of antagonism.After taunting Canada and Mexico with seemingly unworkable proposals on government procurement and a five-year sunset clause on a new deal, American officials are now rolling out their ideas on how much North American content should be included in cars to be considered acceptable for tariff-free treatment.The American rules-of-origin stance has spooked Canada from the beginning, with many an expert and official fearing that Canada’s large auto sector is very vulnerable to the whims of U.S. President Donald Trump, who has complained loudly about auto production shifting to Mexico.At first glance, the U.S. stance lives up to its billing, demanding so much North American content as to make a tariff actually preferable — and prompting observers to wonder if the U.S. is bargaining in good faith.Warnings about the death of NAFTA have loomed large. Even as Trump met with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in Washington to discuss the pact this week, the U.S. president threatened yet again to tear it up. As Trudeau moved on to Mexico to meet with President Enrique Pena Nieto, talk turned to Plan B — life without NAFTA.IT’S A PLAN! IT’S A STRATEGY! NO, IT’S A VERY LONG CONVERSATIONHow is Canada going to move to an era of renewable energy and environmental protection even as the national economy is dependent on fossil fuels, and is torn about how to best benefit from its natural resources?Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr has been canvassing the country on those questions, and this week he had been expected to set out his big vision for national energy.Hundreds of experts and industry players went to a days-long Winnipeg conference to discover where he is heading. Instead of a formal strategy, however, the minister is pointing to further consultation and a piece-by-piece approach to regulating energy.That will start with revisions to the environmental assessment process and the National Energy Board. But how the government sees an east-west energy grid or the development of pipelines fitting into the broader plan is still a mystery.SIDLING UP TO SAGUENAYWhile Trudeau was rubbing elbows in Washington and Mexico City, the new leaders of the Conservatives and the NDP were both jetting off to the often-sovereigntist Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region to give their local candidates a boost in an upcoming byelection.The Oct. 23 vote will be telling for all involved, since the seat is the Conservatives to lose, and since the new NDP leader, Jagmeet Singh, is untested in Quebec.Their visits gave us a glimpse into the newbies’ style of politics. Singh gamely answered a stream of questions about his views on separation, national unity, religion and its ties to politics — and his turban.Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer, who arrived a couple days after Singh left, faces a challenge in maintaining the seat after the resignation of longtime Tory Denis Lebel, who won the riding by just 33 per cent of the vote in 2015. The Conservatives have put a high priority on growing their 11-seat base in Quebec in the next election.
MONTREAL – Walmart Canada is backtracking on a controversial decision to withdraw from a program that provided work experience in its Quebec stores to people with disabilities or autism.The decision in March to pull out of the program run by local agencies in Quebec triggered intense criticism online and became a public relations nightmare for the U.S.-based retail giant.Some of the employees let go had been with the company for 20 years.A spokesperson for the company told The Canadian Press in an email Thursday it “confirms all former participants in the program who wish to return under the same conditions that were offered before are welcome to do so.”The retailer said it will co-ordinate with local agencies to reintegrate people with disabilities or autism into its workforce.Walmart Canada will “(work) with all these people, their families and local social service agencies to find new arrangements that will offer support to the participants,” including “hiring these people directly.”The company said its directive applies to all the stores in Quebec that had participated in the program but didn’t say how many outlets were involved.It is unclear how many people were initially let go from Walmart stores after the company decided to stop participating in the program.
Mumbai: NCP chief Sharad Pawar’s grand nephew Parth and senior leader Chhagan Bhujbal’s nephew Sameer figure in the second list of five candidates for next month’s Lok Sabha poll, declared by the party on Friday. Parth, son of senior NCP leader and former Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar, will be contesting from the Maval constituency. Parth’s candidature follows Sharad Pawar stepping back from the poll arena from Madha seat to accommodate his grand- nephew in the list. The party also fielded Chhagan Bhujbal’s nephew Sameer Bhujbal (Nashik). Sameer was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate in a case of money laundering. Dr Amol Kolhe, who played Chhatrapati Sambhaji on TV, also figures in the second list. Kolhe, who recently switched parties to join the NCP, after quitting the Shiv Sena, will contest from Shirur. The list also includes Dhanraj Haribhau Mahale (Dindori) and Bajrang Sonawane (Beed). The party has so far not announced any candidate for the controversial Ahmednagar and Madha seats. Pawar was expected to contest from Madha but recently declared he won’t do so. In the first list of 12 candidates, declared Thursday, Sharad Pawar’s daughter Supriya Sule was renominated from the family turf Baramati, which she represents in the outgoing Lok Sabha. Prominent among others named in the first list were former Irrigation Minister Sunil Tatkare from Raigad, former state minister Gulabrao Devkar from Jalgaon, Udyanraje Bhosale from Satara, Dhananjay Mhadik from Kolhapur, Sanjay Dina Patil (Mumbai North East) and Anand Paranjpe from Thane.
