If you’re still scratching your head and wondering why this is Geocache of the Week, here are a few reasons:The creativity and craftsmanship that went into the containerThe awesome theme and decorationAll of the positive logs and favorite pointsA dedicated geocache ownerNot to mention, the threat of extermination via Daleks is a pretty unique feature for a geocache.What the geocache owner, carlep_99, has to say:“While watching Youtube videos about geocaching I kept seeing all these different field puzzle caches. So I decided I was going to try and create one myself and dedicate it to my favorite tv show (Doctor Who) to celebrate the new season beginning August 2014.”“I actually was surprised at the reaction some had with this cache. I wasn’t expecting it to be as popular as it turned out to be. Don’t get me wrong I was hoping people would enjoy it but when I saw what people were saying I got teary eyed and got a feeling of euphoria (i guess would be the best way to describe it) it was such an awesome experience…I wrote in the description a definite for Doctor Who fans, I was wrong, it’s turning out to be a definite for the whole geocaching community. A very much appreciated thank you to the geocaching community for all the logs posted and logs to be posted for “Doctor Who #13″.”What geocachers are saying:“One of the Best caches I’ve found in our tenure as geocachers! I wish I knew about the Dr Who series before finding this because after a first failed attempt to enter the Tardis I did my research. That just added to my appreciation of this cache when I returned to successfully log it! Simply awesome, a masterpiece of engineering and workmanship!” – Timpat

DefinitionRepair of webbed fingers or toes is surgery to fix webbing of the toes, fingers, or both. The middle and ring fingers or the second and third toes are most often affected.Alternative NamesWeb finger repair; Web toe repair; Syndactyly repairDescriptionThis procedure is done using general anesthesia. The patient is asleep and pain-free.The health care provider will mark the areas of skin that need repair.The surgeon cuts the skin, then lifts up small flaps in the web and at the sides of the fingers or toes. The flaps are sewn into position, leaving missing areas of skin. These areas may be filled in with skin taken from the groin area, if necessary. The hand or foot is then wrapped with a bulky bandage or cast so that it cannot move.Simple webbing of fingers or toes involves only the skin and other soft tissues. The surgery is more complicated when it involves fused bones, nerves, blood vessels, and tendons.Why the Procedure Is PerformedThis surgery is advised if the webbing causes problems with appearance, or in using the fingers or toes. Generally, the repairs are done when a child is between 6 months and 2 years old.RisksRisks for any anesthesia include the following:Problems breathingReactions to medicationsRisks for any surgery include the following:BleedingInfectionOther possible complications related to this surgery include the following:Damage from not getting enough blood in the hand or foot, due to the castLoss of skin graftsStiffness of the fingers or toesCall your doctor if you notice the following:advertisementFeverFingers that tingle, are numb, or have a bluish tingeSevere painSwellingAfter the ProcedureMost people stay in the hospital for 1 – 2 days.Sometimes the cast extends beyond the fingers or toes to protect the repaired area from injury. Small children who had webbed finger repair may need a cast that reaches above the elbow.Outlook (Prognosis)The repair is usually successful. When joined fingers share a single fingernail, the creation of two normal-looking nails is rarely possible. One nail will look more normal than the other. Some children require a second surgery if the webbing is complicated.The separated fingers will never look or function the same.ReferencesJobe MT. Congenital anomalies of the hand.

The Health Ministry’s vector control programme has received a boost with the addition of 14 new vehicles to its fleet, to assist in further controlling the dengue outbreak, which is now on the decline.Speaking at the handing over of the vehicles by the National Health Fund (NHF), at its Marcus Garvey Drive pharmaceutical division, on Friday (January 11), Health Minister, Hon. Dr. Fenton Ferguson, said the vehicles will be particularly helpful in rural areas and hilly terrain, where accessibility for fogging has been challenging.He informed that the $38 million for the vehicles was sourced from an allocation of $111 million that Cabinet decided on, after Hurricane Sandy in October 2012, to deal with the dengue control programme until March 31, 2013. Dr. Ferguson disclosed that from the allocation, some 28 fogging machines were also acquired, with plans for a total of 40 to be purchased.“The expectation is that we will get the additional 20 fogging machines this month,” the Minister noted.Meanwhile, the Health Minister said in the last six weeks, there has been a reduction in the number of new dengue cases. Between January and December 22 last year, there were 5,613 clinically suspected cases; however, there were only 746 laboratory confirmations. Ten persons died from the disease during the period.Dr. Ferguson emphasised that despite the reduction, the ministry will not be letting up on control efforts and continues to appeal to all households and businesses to continue to make every effort to destroy breeding sites. He said the ministry will continue with fogging activities and the removal of breeding sites of the aedes egypti mosquitoes, pointing out that between January and December 2012, and particularly in the month of September, over 2,000 communities were fogged, with repeated fogging in some. “Concurrently, approximately 78,932 premises have been searched and approximately 179,390 containers inspected for mosquito vectors. Some 34,739 were found positive (and) 38,645 containers have been treated,” he outlined informed.The Minister added that some 273 tyre shops, 105 garages and 44 dump sites have been inspected and treatment administered where breeding locations were found.
Advertisement Facebook Advertisement Advertisement It was billed as a battle between the fictional worlds of Westeros and Gilead.In the end, the epic fantasy Game of Thrones won for best dramatic series, emerging victorious over The Handmaid’s Tale at the 70th annual Emmy Awards on Monday night.It wasn’t a sure thing: Dystopian classic The Handmaid’s Tale won last year, and the Margaret Atwood adaptation remains prescient in the #MeToo era, and an age when women’s abortion rights are under threat. LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment But Game of Thrones, despite being absent from the ballots last year, roared back to prominence. It was already the most decorated scripted show in Emmy history, but after a 13-month absence, the series seemed vulnerable to fickle voters and the red tide of the handmaids. But voters chose escapism over an alternate reality that perhaps hit too close to home.Despite the focus on the headline contest between well-established incumbents for best drama, this was ostensibly an Emmy Awards night about diversity. But it didn’t quite deliver on the mission statement.Inside the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles, an entertaining musical number featured John Legend, Ricky Martin, Kate McKinnon and Kenan Thompson singing, tongue firmly planted in cheek, that they had solved the lack of diversity in Hollywood.“This year has the most diverse group in Emmy history,” said Thompson. “It’s one step closer to a Black Sheldon.” Login/Register With: Twitter
