5 simple ways to make life easier

first_imgIf you want to be happier and have a more stress-free life, here are a few ways you can make your life easier.Only spend the money you have: It can feel good to spend money. It feels even better to not create debt. Save and spend. Don’t run up debt that will pile on you for years. Maybe you’ll have less “stuff,” but you’ll appreciate living debt free.Drink water: Lay off the coffee and beer. Drinking water can increase energy, flush out toxins, boost your immune system, and promote weight loss. Not to mention all the money you’ll save. Water is a lot cheaper than that latte.Get out: Go for a walk out in nature, or take a cruise down the highway. It’s always good to get some fresh air and your blood pumping.Take notes: This is good advice at work, but it’s also a good habit to get in at home. Write down not only important names and numbers, but anything you don’t want to forget. If you have a weekly download of thoughts and ideas, you’ll have a lot more clarity every day.Be nice: If feels good to be kind and it’s nice to not have any drama with people in your life. Being nice is contagious, so maybe you’ll rub off on those you come in contact with on a regular basis. 125SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John Pettit John Pettit is the Managing Editor for CUInsight.com.

Close quarters increase risk for meningitis

first_imgCollege students, especially those living close to a large number of students, are at a significantly higher risk for contracting meningitis than the rest of the population.Charity · Otana Jakpor, a freshman majoring in global health, attended an event during Global Health Awareness Week to raise money for Japan. – Kelvin Kuo | Daily Trojan According to a recent warning issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, meningitis has a case rate of 1 in 100,000 in a non-student population. College freshmen living in dormitories, however, contract meningitis at an a increased rate of 4.6 cases per 100,000 people.“In the U.S. this infection is rare, fortunately, but when we see it, it’s usually found in populations where there is crowded living: military barracks and college dormitories,” said Dr. Alejandro Sanchez, assistant professor of clinical medicine at the Keck School of Medicine.The CDC reports approximately 2,500 to 3,500 cases of meningococcal meningitis annually. Meningitis is a bacterial infection of fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord.“If left untreated, the disease is deadly,” said Dr. William Leavitt, USC’s lead physician at the University Park Health Center. “If treatment is delayed there can be serious neurological consequences.”USC’s Global Health Student Club began hosting a series of events Monday for the third annual Global Health Awareness Week to raise awareness about health issues including infectious diseases, pollution, vaccination and environmental health.Global Health Awareness events include film screenings at the Ray Stark Family Theater, a Health Sciences Opportunity Fair in the von KleinSmid Center Courtyard and a Lunchtime Speakers Series on the Health Sciences Campus.Meningitis not only affects domestic populations, but is more commonly seen in an area of sub-Saharan Africa called the meningitis belt. Therefore, learning how to prevent or minimize the outbreak in the United States by educating community members during Global Health Awareness Week are the first steps to solving a more globally complex problem, Flores said.Education about the consequences of meningitis is a focal point in promoting awareness about the disease. One in 10 individuals who contract meningitis dies from the infection, while others are affected for life. Neurological damage, deafness and loss of arm and leg movement are serious results of delayed treatment, according to Leavitt.The easiest way to prevent meningitis is by receiving a vaccination for the disease, which the UPHC offers.“I’ve received the vaccination, but if I hadn’t and learned more about the disease, I would be more inclined to get it to protect myself,” said Kelly Kinsella, a freshman majoring in public relations.The meningococcal meningitis vaccination is “strongly recommended” to all incoming freshman before or promptly after moving onto campus. The vaccine is not mandatory, however, because it is expensive and the disease is rare, according to Leavitt.“Some students got the vaccine at home before coming to USC,” Leavitt said. “The rest are not concerned enough to come in [to the health center] and get it.”According to Leavitt, meningitis is “very rare” at USC, but the risks still remain in crowded living arrangements with students living in dorms.“I’ve been vaccinated prior to coming to USC mainly because I’m aware of how deadly meningitis can be,” said Jackie Drobny, an undeclared freshman.Some students said vaccination did make a difference.Vaccination prevents four types of meningitis and is 90 percent effective in all recipients, according to Leavitt.To keep a potential outbreak low, Leavitt suggests students make their way to the health center to get vaccinated, especially undergraduates living in on-campus dormitories.Engaging in activities where students come into direct contact with one another are likely to promote the disease, according to the health center.“The disease is easily spread by droplet transmission, and college students engage in activities that promote the spread of this infection by sharing cigarettes, drinking glasses, utensils [and] food, as well as kissing,” Leavitt said. “Fortunately, this usually results in passing a carrier state [when an organism is present in the body but does not cause symptoms] between individuals.”last_img read more

first_imgThe Donegal village of Raphoe has claimed its third big National Lottery win of the year, with a local shop selling last night’s Lotto Plus 1 winning ticket worth a massive €1 million!The National Lottery confirmed today that Barclay’s Newsagents in the Diamond, Raphoe, sold the golden Lotto Plus 1 ticket – the same shop that sold a EuroMillions Plus winning ticket landing a local man €500,000 in February.And in an incredible run of luck the Centra Store in Raphoe sold the winning Match 5 Plus Bonus winning ticket from the Lotto Draw on Feb 28th – nabbing that ticket holder a cool €98,068. The National Lottery today appealed to all its players in Donegal to check their tickets to see if they are Ireland’s latest Lotto millionaire. The winning numbers are: 8, 11, 16, 18, 20, 46 and bonus number 40.This is the 14th millionaire created since Lotto and Lotto Plus game enhancements were introduced last September.The owner of the winning Lotto Plus 1 shop, Jimmy Barclay, said today he was delighted to hear his shop had sold another big National Lottery ticket “This is great news we can’t believe it! This is a very small town and to have sold a Lotto Plus 1 and a EuroMillions Plus winning ticket within a few months is brilliant.”He said there is a lot of passing traffic through the town, especially at weekends, so it could be anybody. “We are only six miles from the border and get a lot of visitors so who knows. Whoever it is we are thrilled for them.” In February Barclay’s shop sold a EuroMillions Plus winning ticket won by 84-year-old retired farmer, Charlie Meehan, from Manorcunningham. Charlie, who decided to go public with his win, revealed he was in recovery from cancer and declared at the time he was going to enjoy his winnings with his family.A National Lottery spokesperson said today: “What are the odds! Three big wins in a few months in a small town. What a great day it is for Barclay’s newsagents. We are thrilled for the locals in Raphoe and urge everybody to check their tickets to see if they are Ireland’s newsest Lotto millionaire.”Almost 30 cent in every euro spent on National Lottery games goes back to Good Causes all over Ireland in the areas of sport, health, arts, culture, heritage, youth, community and the Irish language. Last year alone more than €227 million was raised for Good Causes, the equivalent of €620,000 a day.Breaking: Lotto fever sweeps Raphoe as players wins million euro jackpot! was last modified: April 2nd, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Barclay’sCentralottoRaphoelast_img read more

Industry Insights: Interview with Makeup Artist Kaela Dobson

first_imgPremium Beat had the opportunity to go behind the paint with Kaela Dobson to discuss her approach to people and projects.Makeup artist Kaela Dobson‘s résumé is peppered with fun and challenging projects, such as the intricate designs she created for Hulu’s Wu-Tang: An American Saga, the gritty reality look of The Night Of, and the larger-than-life superheroes of Luke Cage and Jessica Jones.Jessica Jones. Photo by David Giesbrecht/NetflixPremiumBeat: Kaela, your job requires trust and intimacy — you are literally up in the talent’s face! I would imagine that beyond the aesthetic skill, you also need stellar social skills. How do you go about making the actor feel comfortable?Kaela Dobson: A big part of my job is to develop a relationship with the talent. I try to start each makeup project by first discussing my ideas with the actor, and letting them know that I am completely open to any input or requests. I think being receptive plays a huge part in making them comfortable and able to talk to me. I also want them to know that this is a collaborative process. Knowing their concerns and ideas helps me know what to keep an eye on and what they are self-conscious about, so we can build a rapport. I also feel that having good energy, a colorful station in the trailer, and great music helps to set the tone.Wu-Tang: An American Saga. Photo by Craig Blankenhorn/Hulu – © 2019 HuluPB: What were some of the challenges you faced when working on Hulu’s Wu-Tang: An American Saga — since you were recreating the looks of the original members — including executive producer of the show and founding member, RZA?KD: Having RZA as a reference to talk to whenever I needed clarity on some of the looks was so invaluable because he lived it. We were in a mad dash when I was brought onto the project to get all of the gold grills made, facial hair appliances figured out, and to establish a game plan for covering all of Dave East’s tattoos. Dave, who plays Method Man, is not only covered head to toe in tattoos, he also had to wear heavy winter gear, as the show is set during winter. His makeup needed to be bulletproof for shooting so it would not rub or sweat off in the warmer months. Another huge challenge was figuring out the facial hair for Sha and Divine. They were both working on other projects at the time and had already established a clean-shaven look, which we couldn’t alter. Both characters had very distinguished goatees in the ’90s, so we ended up going with a hand-laid hair technique to accomplish this, and to avoid the sometimes-fake look of a lace piece. We did a few tests of everything before shooting and were able to see some of what did and did not work. Overall, a lot of things were down to the wire and came together on day one of shooting.The Night Of via HBOPB: Switching tracks from the grills and gold of Wu-Tang, when you are working on something that is more basic and every day — such as HBO’s The Night Of — what is your way in to create the look and feel of the characters?KD: I was lucky enough to work on The Night Of, when I made the transition from film to TV, under amazing Makeup Designer Stephen Kelley. Watching how he ran his department and designed his characters taught me so much. A lot of what I was responsible for on The Night Of was helping to apply tattoos for the prison scenes. I have always approached makeup from the perspective of the characters. How would I go about my daily life, what kind of makeup would I be wearing (if at all), and what are some small details that I can incorporate into the design that will tell more of the character’s story?Luke Cage. Photo by David Lee/NetflixPB: You’ve worked quite extensively in the TV Marvel universe. When doing the key makeup for a beloved character, do you look for prior approaches? Or is it an opportunity for a fresh take? Perhaps both?KD: When I joined the Marvel family, I was working under another department head who had designed all of the original looks for each character. I started working full-time on Luke Cage season one and was able to help establish some of the characters, but most were at the hands of my department head. Working with the actors every day, and following along with each script, allowed me to really get to know them inside and out. When my opportunity to design season two came along, my knowledge of each character’s journey over the course of the series granted me a new perspective in the design of the makeup. I wanted to show the growth and change in each of them, but also stay true to the roots of their look. I drew a lot of inspiration from the comic books and the personality and style of each character.PB: For someone starting out, wanting to get behind the makeup chair in film and television, what advice would you give them to navigate the business and stay on top of their craft?KD: The best advice I can give anyone looking to join the film and television industry as a makeup artist is to be flexible, prepared, and open to collaboration. One of the best things I learned was to come from a place of “Yes” instead of a place of “No” when things are not ideal for you. Being able to problem-solve and roll with the punches makes you an irreplaceable asset. And, if you have a well-stocked set bag, you are ready for anything!Looking for more film and video industry interviews?
