Acne : Causes and Treatments
2008-05-27 20:10:00
Nearly everyone the world over has experienced acne at some time in their life. Acne is a skin disorder that erupts in inflamed lesions on the face, neck, back and shoulders. It affects the physical appearance of a person, causing them to suffer embarrassment and drives down their self-esteem. It is a frustrating experience in knowing just how to deal with the problem; plus knowing how to treat the disorder.An enlarged hair follicle becomes clogged with oil and bacteria, causing an inflamed lesion. The skin produces more oil which causes bacteria to grow in the lesion and now you have a case of acne.There are five basic forms of acne: blackheads, whiteheads, papules (red pimples), pustules and cysts or nodules.Whiteheads and blackheads are distinguishable by color. The whitehead on the skin has small white bumps; whereas the blackhead is dark colored.

Duplicate Poker
2008-05-19 18:30:00
Duplicate Poker , the only online poker site headquartered in the US with many poker rooms, launched late last year to a mix of opinions. Some thought the concept of poker without luck was preposterous, while others thought it was genius.At first glance, the style of tournament play at Duplicate Poker might seem a little confusing, but once you grasp the (very) easy-to-understand concepts, you are left with a game of skill that can win you thousands.Here's the simple concept that you need to understand: while each hand is played against the other players at your table, you are collecting points based on how you do against the people sitting in your seat at the other tables. For example, if you are in the six seat, you are essentially playing against all of the people sitting in the six seats at other tables.Here's the kicker (pardon the poker pun) - all of the tables are dealt the exact same cards each hand that is played, and each player starts each hand with the same number of ch...

How sunscreen protects ur skin?
2008-03-26 17:15:00
Sunscreen (also known as sunblock, suntan lotion) is a lotion, spray or other topical product that helps protect the skin from the sun's ultraviolet (UV) radiation, and which reduces sunburn and other skin damage, with the goal lowering your risk of skin cancer. However in the United States, the term suntan lotion usually means the opposite of sunscreen, and instead refers to lotion designed to moisturize and maximize UV exposure and tanning rather than block it. These are commonly called indoor tanning lotions designed for use with tanning beds or just suntan lotion if designed for outdoor use and may or may not have SPF protection in them.The most effective sunscreens protect against both UVB (ultraviolet radiation with wavelength between 290 and 320 nanometres), which can cause sunburn, and UVA (between 320 and 400 nanometres), which damages the skin with more long-term effects, such as premature skin aging.

Burial Insurance
2008-02-13 18:41:00
The big question here is "Do we need a burial insurance" and the answer depends on two major factors.I believe two of the most important factors are to consider who will make your final plans first, then how will those plans be funded? Simple questions yes, but among those most of us fail to ask ourselves or give serious thought to.Choosing a person to handle your final arrangements can be done in reality by doing nothing at all. At your death in most states, lineage will decide who will have right of disposition. If no legal descendants are available to handle this duty most counties, townships and/or states will step in and have the final disposition done. This will usually be a direct burial or cremation as determined by the government body handling it. I recommend avoiding this possibility by selecting a family member or friend to entrust with this duty and to make sure they have the legal documents necessary to abide by your wishes. Also, be sure your chosen administrators will...

Mortgage offset
2008-01-30 17:36:00
With growing uncertainty as to the housing market in the UK, offset mortgages are becoming more common. This type of plan allows homeowners the chance to reduce interest by offsetting credit balances against the mortgage debts.This would mean that interest would only be charged on the net balance of the mortgage, giving homeowners the chance to save money by cutting out a portion of their costs.By combining home loans and savings in an offset mortgage, homeowners could find themselves saving money on interest, as the savings part of the agreement would not be susceptible to the interest rate associated with mortgages.Through this method, borrowers can effectively overpay each month, allowing for greater flexibility of payments and the opportunity to clear their mortgages quicker.Because you’re combining savings with the mortgage itself, there is the potential to use those savings to make monthly repayments – effectively giving yourself a repayment holiday.However if you also wan...
