Tick Removal Lyme Disease Nursing Scrubs

I live in upstate New York and this time of year, ticks are running rampant. About two months ago, my oldest son found a tick full of blood in the back of his neck. A few weeks ago, I found one embedded in my side. It wasn’t full of blood yet, so it hadn’t been there too long. I’m guessing about 12 hours, so chance of lyme disease is slim since it takes at least 24 hours to transmit it.
I pretty sure my son’s tick was in longer than that. His doctor put him on an antibiotic, just in case. I’m not a big fan of antibiotics for “just in case”, but I guess it’s the lesser of two evils. My father actually had lyme disease and was on very powerful antibiotics for 2 months, which made him very tired.
I was able to get both of our ticks out, but each one had a little piece left in. I took my son to the emergency room. While we were waiting, another mother came in with her son. She had a tick in her shoulder earlier in the day, and her son had a tick in the back of his head. The emergency room doctor removed the piece from my son without a problem.
With my tick, I decided to try a nearby urgent care to get the rest out. I waited 2 1/2 hours before I finally saw someone. They told me they weren’t going to try and get the piece out. It would come out on it’s own. Yeah, I wasn’t too happy I wasted 2 1/2 hours and $20.00 for them to tell me they weren’t going to do anything. I did learn that it’s ok to leave a small piece of a tick in if you can’t get it out.
After my son’s tick, I bought a tick removal tool from amazon and a tick release liquid. I couldn’t get my tick out using the key. Maybe I just wasn’t using it right or maybe it was because the tick wasn’t full of blood. I don’t know. My son’s father got 4 out of 5 ticks out of a dog using the tick key. I used the tick release liquid on my tick and I think it killed the tick. I don’t know if that’s good or bad.
To remove the tick, use a great pair of tweezers and squeeze as close to the skin as you can and pull straight out until the tick releases. Don’t squeeze the sack. That could cause the tick to vomit more disease carrying bacteria into you, which is what I hope the tick release liquid did not do.
During my emergency room and urgent care visits, I noticed that the nursing scrubs, the nurses were wearing, are pretty boring. There are websites out there which actually sell scrubs. Nowadays, scrubs come in all sorts of different colors and patterns. If you are a nurse or doctor tired of wearing the same old scrubs, you might want to give http://www.blueskyscrubs.com/categories/Scrubs/Scrubs-for-Women/ a look, and if you go outdoors, watch out for those ticks.

PHP Web Development Advertising Agency

I have a list of programming languages I would like to learn. On the list is PHP. If you take a look at the job listings on any freelance programming website, there are tons of openings for PHP programmers. I’ve dabbled with web programming using jsp, java, javascript and html, but no PHP.
One day I was checking out the available classes at ed2go and noticed there were two PHP courses. An introduction class and an intermediate class. Each one costs $89.00 and lasts 6 weeks. Over the duration of the course, 2 lessons are released a week, for a total of 12 lessons. One lesson is released on Wednesday and the other on Friday.
Last week I finished the introduction course and started the intermediate class this week. I must say, I learned quite a bit.
The introduction course took you from start to finish in the development of your own recipe website. A mysql database is used to hold the recipe data. On the website users can create an account, leave comments and search recipes. Pretty cool. I may have to find a way to may it live and integrate it into my recipes blog.
I can’t wait to get more into the intermediate class. This one takes you from start to finish of a store, which should be useful for my magazine back issues website.
PHP seems to be a pretty powerful programming language. One thing I never realized is that it is object oriented. It seems to have support for doing just about anything you can do in programming languages like C++. PHP is much easier to use to build a dynamic website than jsp and javascript. Unlike javascript which is browser dependent, PHP runs on the server, which means it’s always on, so you don’t have to worry about whether or not the user has it enabled in their browser, like with javascript.
Once I make my way through the rest of the intermediate PHP course, I have to go back to a few of the freelance programming sites and see if I can pick up a side job.
I may set up a website and advertise my skills. These days there are lots of programmers out there, especially in the area of web development. I may even look into hiring an Advertising Agency. One that comes to mind is called ThatAdvertising Agency. They are an Advertising Agency made up of tech savvy people. They use all the latest online advertising techniques in addition to the old offline advertising techniques. Hiring an Advertising Agency that knows all the advertising tips and tricks might be just the key to promoting a website and helping a newbie break into the competitive web development field.
