A Few Ways To Remove Skin Tags

afewwayrskSkin Tags are common growths that look like tiny, soft balloons of hanging flesh. While unsightly, they are completely benign, and a single person can have anywhere from one to hundreds of individual skin tags. Men and women are equally likely to develop them. Skin tags are typically about 2 mm-5 mm in diameter, but may grow as large as a grape (1 cm in diameter) or even a fig (5 cm in diameter). They are most commonly found on the base of the neck, armpits, eyelids, groin folds, buttock folds, and under the breasts. Of these, the neck and the armpits are the most common. Skin tags are believed to develop as a result of friction, either friction between skin and skin or between skin and clothing. Friction will also make existing skin tags worse. …

Daydreaming – Winning Proposition?

So let’s talk daydreaming. There’s not a person alive who hasn’t engaged in it, and most of the time it involves simply letting the creative juices flow about what might be in life, a healthy stimulant prodding us forward. But some daydreaming involves wishing we were “the other person,” someone we know or have seen and who we assume is better in every way than we are. This kind of daydreaming, if left unchecked, can begin to have serious psychological, emotional, and behavioral effects.

Let’s call this kind of daydreaming “envious envisioning.” It is both unhealthy and unwise. In envy, we negate in ourselves what we envy in another. For example, Chris is an attractive young man, talented, intelligent, with an outgoing personality. At least that’s the way I read him. He, however,

Changing UC Berkeley’s Admissions Policy

It’s true that some U.C. admissions policies needed fine-tuning. But the regents had in their midst–and chose to ignore–a workable model for reform: U.C. Berkeley’s undergraduate admissions policy. Over the past decade, the policy had been reworked several times to arrive at a delicate balance. It scrupulously avoided quotas, drew only from a qualified pool of applicants, weighed race against several other factors and quickly removed ethnic groups from its list as their lots improved. In short, it achieved what the convulsive national debate on affirmative action has been seeking: the elusive middle ground.

The seed for the regents’ backlash was planted last summer, when a frustrated father named Jerry Cook showed up at Connerly’s office with his wife, Ellen, and a blue binder full of numbers. Their son, James, had been rejected at U.C. San

Recovering From Crashing Hard Drives: Your Options

What do you do if your hard drive crashes? It’s a devastating loss to your life, regardless if you are a heavy or casual computer user. The hard drive of a computer is essentially its brain, and like the human body, a computer will experience system wide failure without its brain.

Hard drive recovery options depend on the cause of the failure. Ideally you would have invested in, or had a systematic hard drive back up system. However, if you didn’t, there are solutions available to you. Typically the first objective in recovering your hard drive is determining the cause. If you are able to do this yourself, you can then determine what is needed to repair it. In most cases hard drive recovery can be a costly and time consuming process. However, in some cases, …
