Ricky “The Hitman” Hatton regained the IBF light welterweight title belt he relinquished less than 12 months ago when he defeated Juan Urango in Las Vegas, Nevada tonight.

“The Hitman” won by unanimous decision, as the fight went to 12 rounds. Despite early match odds suggesting Hatton would dominate the fight, this was not the case. Each round was close, but most pundits and judges alike agreed that Urango only won 1 of the 12 rounds, with Hatton taking the other 11.

Despite the unfamiliar confines of Las Vegas, Hatton looked touched by the ringing of football fan-like chants, familiar in British boxing, that rang around the arena, as more than half of it was filled by traveling support from across the atlantic.

Many in the UK will hope Hatton has ended the “curse” that has seen names such as Frank Bruno, Naseem Hamed, Barry McGuigan and others fall short while headlining fights on “The Strip”.

From here, it is widely believed “The Hitman” will move on to fight Jose Luis Castillo in June, again likely in Vegas.

With five active cases of the Delta variant of COVID-19, South Australia begun a one-week lockdown on Monday. Announcing the lockdown, state Premier Steven Marshall declared “we have no alternative but to impose some fairly heavy and immediate restrictions”.

The first case out of South Australia’s active cases was presented to Modbury Hospital on Sunday night, having returned from Argentina earlier this month. The fifth, which Premier Marshall noted as “far more worrying”, visited The Greek on Halifax restaurant at the same time as someone who was later confirmed to be carrying the virus. Chief Public Health Officer for the state Nicola Spurrier said “if anyone has been at The Greek on Halifax they need to get into quarantine and get tested”.

In accordance with new regulations, there are only five reasons for South Australians to leave home: essential work, shopping for essential goods such as food, exercise, but only with people from the same household and within 2.5 kilometers (2 mi) of home, medical reasons (which includes testing and vaccination against the coronavirus, but excludes elective and cosmetic surgery), and caregiving.

Schools have closed for all but children of essential workers, with online learning having begun on Thursday. Face masks are also be mandated for those who leave home. ABC News reported that “support for businesses is expected to be announced…”, with all non-essential retail required to close under the new regulations.

If you are like numerous facial eczema sufferers, you probably are not receiving the results you’d like to have using your face eczema regime.

This can be a common issue affecting many people, but it is not an issue which is difficult to understand. The undeniable fact is that currently medical science cannot supply a cure for eczema, and also this is definitely the sole reason that a lot more people are turning their attention to natural eczema treatments.

Having eczema on the face can often be difficult to take care of. Not only because of any viable medical therapy, but also because it can definitely affect your confidence.

Face eczema is there for any one to see. It cannot be hidden under clothes like other kinds of eczema. If a person suffers with this particular problem, it can be natural to think that others are looking at you. The red rash, skin which can be flaky, as well as the small bumps could make you feel really unattractive. This can sometimes make a person feel like a recluse.

The prospects are you have been applying a medicated facial eczema treatment for a long time now. If you’re fortunate, its possible you have found something that is great for controlling your symptoms. If however you’re like several sufferers, you aren’t getting great results. If this is you, then a different approach might be required

An all natural eczema on face treatment can frequently make a positive change to facial eczema problems. An enormous benefit from natural eczema remedies, is that they don’t include uncomfortable side effects. Many eczema creams that you receive from the doctor will contain a steroid base. Side effects on steroids are well documented.

Here are a few tips for coping with eczema on the face.

1. Resist scratching your sensitive skin on your face if you can ,. Scratching helps to make the skin disorder a great deal worse. The hands touch countless germs consistently. When you put your hands on your face, these germs get transferred.

2. Wear some cotton gloves when you go to sleep during the night. You probably don’t realise how much you’ll scratch at an itch while you’re sleeping at night, and cotton won’t irritate your skin as much as other materials, or your fingernails.

3. Make sure that you use a soap that’s thick and creamy, and contains only natural ingredients. Many soaps on the market today contain chemicals which dry your skin, and reduce your natural skin oils.

4. Keep the skin on your face as moisturized as is possible. Eczema loves dried-out skin. Use natural creams and oils for this. The most effective ones are creams that have high amounts of Natural aloe-vera. Oils like coconut oil, and organic olive oil, are excellent for keeping the skin moist and healthy.

After all, if medications may not be providing you with any real benefits, then why blindly persist in using them? If they wouldn’t work a week ago, they certainly are not going to work in the future.

You do have alternatives aside from just medications. Plenty of people are obtaining good results while using a natural eczema on face treatment, so why not test it for yourself

About the Author: Natural treaments for eczema have become very popular over the last few years. Many people are switching to using these types of remedies. For further information visit

The U.S. House of Representatives approved the Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) early morning Thursday, with a narrow vote of 217 in favor, 215 against. Voting was held open for an hour, 45 minutes past the House’s 15-minute voting rule as the President along with other supporters lobbied into the night.

The vote was so close, if one House member changed a “Yea” vote to a “Nay” vote, CAFTA would have failed in a 216-216 tie.

In tallying the votes, 25 Republicans, mostly from Midwest Corn Belt and Rust Belt states and the Southeast United States’s textile industrial belt, broke party line to vote against the measure. Two Republicans were present, but refused to vote.

The Democrats presented a more united front. All but 15 Democrats present voted against the treaty. Independent House members, who usually vote with the Democrats also voted against the measure.

Supporters of the measure include President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, U.S. Trade Representative Rob Portman and Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez. Opponents included most House Democrats.

The trade agreement already passed the Senate in June. President Bush has said he will sign it into law.

DR-CAFTA encompasses the following components:

  • Services: all public services are to be open to private investment.
  • Investment: governments promise to grant ironclad guarantees to foreign investment.
  • Government procurement: All government purchases must be open to transnational bids.
  • Market access: governments pledge to reduce and eventually to eliminate tariffs and other measures that protect domestic products.
  • Agriculture: duty-free import and elimination of subsidies on agricultural products.
  • Intellectual property rights: privatization of and monopoly over technological know-how.
  • Antidumping rules, subsidies and countervailing rights: governments commit to phase out protectionist barriers in all sectors.
  • Competition policy: the dismantling of national monopolies.
  • Dispute resolution: the right of transnationals to sue countries in private international courts.
  • Environmental protection: the enforcement of environmental laws and improvement of the environment.
  • Labor standards: the enforcement of the International Labour Organization‘s core labor standards.
  • Transparency: the reduction of government corruption.
  • Test-Data Exclusivity for pharmaceutical corporations

Dental Implants For All

by

Dental Implants have revolutionized the world of dentistry. People no longer have to lose sleep about cavities or painful teeth. People who are unhappy with their teeth have even the choice of specialized treatment known as smile design.

Dental implants have given people that chance to create those perfect smiles that theyve always wanted.

It may seem like an easy enough procedure, but actually, it is a long and detailed process. The process involves a long list of planning and post surgical treatments.

The first step involved is planning for the surgery. This involves study of the implant region and designing of the implant. After this is done and the course of treatment has been determined, the implants are inserted into the jaw through precision drilling and other methods. Once the implants are placed, the jaws and gums have to be given time to heal. The bone will slowly grow into the implants and hold them in place. This normally takes 2 to 6 months.

Dental implants are being more widely opted for due to their similarity to actual teeth. Unlike root canals or fillings, implants replace the whole injured tooth, which makes it less prone to any kind of further decay or infection. It also gives the patient similar chewing strength that they had with the original teeth, if not more.

In a world that is being more and more particular about physical appearance, dental implants have come as a saving grace.

The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) has suspended Niger for refusing to postpone a legislative election. The regional alliance wanted Niger to delay the vote, which was held on Tuesday, to allow for political dialogue following a controversial referendum that has extended the president’s time in office.

“ECOWAS will not recognize the outcome of today’s elections in Niger,” the alliance said in a statement.

ECOWAS followed through on its threat to suspend Niger after President Mamadou Tandja went ahead with legislative vote. Tandja ignored last-minute appeals by ECOWAS leaders to delay the poll, saying that election preparations were too far advanced.

The regional alliance asked him to indefinitely suspend the election in favor of political dialogue to resolve a political crisis sparked by an August referendum that changed the constitution to extend the president’s time in office.

“ECOWAS is already in touch with the African Union to put the Niger file also on the agenda of the African Union Peace and Security Council, which would also lead to the United Nations taking a similar decision,” said Abdel Fatau Musah, the political director of the ECOWAS alliance. “And we know that our partners, like the European Union, are also considering very severed measures against President Tandja and the authorities in Niger for blatantly casting aside their constitution, which actually forbids their president from going beyond two terms.”

Opposition parties have been boycotting this vote for 113 legislators to replace the parliament Tandja dismissed when it said his constitutional referendum was illegal. The president dismissed the country’s constitutional court when it reached the same conclusion.

Alat Mogaskiya, one of the founders of Niger’s Party for Democracy and Socialism, said that Tandja had the legal authority to dismiss parliament, but ignored the constitutional mandate to have new elections to replace those lawmakers within 90 days. He claimed that the new Tandja government is illegal and illegitimate, because the referendum extending the president’s term was unconstitutional.

Ruling party communications secretary Issoufou Tamboura said the opposition boycott will have no impact on the vote, just as its boycott of the referendum had no effect on changing the constitution. Tamboura said the boycott will not stop the new government from continuing its work and electing a new assembly. Parties are free to join or boycott the vote as they choose.

He added that the boycott will not affect the credibility of this vote, because the ruling party is the country’s largest and it is taking part. Some other smaller parties are also participating. He said his party believes this election will be credible.

A study performed at Edinburgh University, Scotland has shown that aspirin may do more harm to your health than good.

The research at the university in Scotland was to assess the effects of taking aspirin on a daily basis where no prior or existing medical conditions would merit its prescription. The researchers monitored 3,350 patients aged between 50–75, who were thought to be at risk of heart disease, but did not show any significant symptoms at the start of the study. Over an eight-year time period, 181 of those people taking aspirin had heart attacks or strokes.

More than 3,000 men aged 50–75 were randomly assigned to receive a daily dose of aspirin or a placebo pill and were watched over the eight year time period. There were 34 major bleeds in people taking aspirin, or 2%, in comparison to 1.2% of those who took the placebo. The Aspirin for Asymptomatic Atherosclerosis (AAA) have found that the routine use of aspirin does not prevent vascular disease or conditions and the use of it “could not be supported.”

Peter Weissberg, a professor at the British Heart Foundation, the company which was partly responsible in funding for the trials said, “we know that patients with symptoms of artery disease, such as angina, heart attack or stroke, can reduce their risk of further problems by taking a small dose of aspirin each day. The findings of this study agree with our current advice that people who do not have symptomatic or diagnosed artery or heart disease should not take aspirin, because the risks of bleeding may outweigh the benefits. Because it’s been around for a long time, people think, ‘It must be safe and it can’t do any harm’. They are taking it ‘just in case’ but it’s much more dangerous than some other drugs that people get concerned about, like statins.”

Professor Gerry Fowkes presented the research from the University of Edinburgh at the European Society of Cardiology congress in Barcelona, Spain, which was attended by more than 30,000 heart specialists.

“Our research suggests that aspirin should not be prescribed to the general population, although it does have benefits for people with established heart disease or other conditions,” stated Fowkes.

A family of six were injured at Flat Rock Bridge Family Resort and campground in Lebanon, Maine after a severe thunderstorm caused trees to topple, with one landing on a tent. A 10-year-old girl was critically injured after a tree fell on the tent she was sleeping in. Witnesses say the girl was pinned under the tree for at least 10 minutes before they were able to remove it.

Witnesses also say the day was beautiful and sunny, but at around 6:00 p.m. (EDT) a storm rolled in, darkening the sky, followed by heavy winds and rain. Witnesses describe a “funnel-like wind” which lifted items off the ground and threw them around. The strong winds then brought down trees and limbs, with one landing on the family’s campsite and tent. Severe lightning was also reported.

“The female patient was loaded into Lebanon Ambulance One and transported to Frisbie Hospital in Rochester to be stabilized and then was transferred to the trauma center at Maine Medical Center. Her injuries were considered critical and life threatening when she left the scene,” said Jason Cole, the assistant rescue chief for the area. The victims names have not been released and the girl’s current condition is not yet known.

Rescuers responding to the scene noticed several other trees and limbs scattered around other campsites and searched all 350 sites, but no other injuries were reported. Other campers say they had several close calls with tree limbs and debris. At least 12 trees were reported to have toppled during the storm. The family’s car was also destroyed when a tree limb landed on it.

The National Weather Service in Maine says it will investigate whether or not the storm produced a tornado.

It is very convenient to be able to order something and get it quickly. Individuals have also come to enjoy the fact that they can call someone to come and pick up items and have them delivered somewhere else. The delivery world has gotten more and more advanced as people ship more and more items each year.

Depending on what type of service individuals require will determine which delivery truck can service their needs. A family that is moving across country needs a delivery truck that can handle all of their belongings and take them cross country. Moving can be very stressful and many people have come to depend on companies to pack up all of their stuff and take it to their new residence. When companies require individuals to move in order to start a new job many of them hire delivery trucks to take all of the individuals stuff to the new home. This makes moving a lot easier and simpler. Delivery trucks that perform these types of tasks need to have magnetic signs that let people know the services they provide. For instance some of these trucks only service certain areas. They make only service a particular area or even certain states. However there are other delivery trucks that service the entire United States and they will pack anyone up and take them anywhere. They could purchase magnetic signs for trucks that states where the trucks travel would be very useful and would earn them more business especially those trucks that delivered anywhere.Some delivery trucks also offer a guarantee that they can get the items to the destination in so much time. Put this guarantee on magnetic signs for trucks and let the public know about the great guarantee. Sometimes people need things sent in a hurry at the last minute and it helps to know what companies can guarantee their service. It can be very irritating and unprofessional to have equipment or papers arriving somewhere let so companies that offer quick and reliable service are a great commodity. Putting important information such as this on the side of the truck lets customers know who they should call when they need something delivered fast. Big companies also use delivery trucks to deliver papers, equipment and other items so the delivery truck could gain the business of a major corporation. Magnetic signs for delivery trucks simply let customers know who they can depend on to get the delivery job done.
