August is national hair loss awareness month, so it’s the perfect time for the team at Patrick Gildea Hairdressing in Letterkenny to share their guide to the causes of hair loss and the treatments they offer:People tend to think of hair loss mainly as a male issue, mostly affecting older men in particular. However, many women are also confronted with reduced volume and thinning at some point in their lives, which can have a negative impact on self-esteem and confidence. Hair loss in women can happen for a number of reasons. Stress, diet, medication, hormonal changes and even a hereditary predisposition for balding can all be contributing factors towards thinning and losing hair.Kiera Galbraith – Patrick Gildea HairdressingKiera Galbraith, one of the specialists in thinning hair at Patrick Gildea Hairdressing, says “At any given time, around 85% of your hair is in a growth phase, known as the anagen phase. The remaining 15% is spent in the telogen resting phase, meaning that it has reached its complete growth potential and will eventually shed. This is the reason why it’s completely natural for both men and women to shed a small amount of hair on a day-to-day basis.“Hair loss occurs when certain triggers, such as those mentioned above, interrupt the healthy growth cycle and far more hair than usual enters the shedding phase, resulting in noticeable areas of hair loss.“Due to the ever-changing nature of hormones throughout our lives, women are particularly vulnerable to some unique hair loss triggers attributed to hormonal change, such a pregnancy and menopause.” So How Can We Help?Making the most of the hair you have begins with a consultation with one of our fully-qualified Hair & Scalp Specialists who will be able to introduce you to the benefits of NIOXIN, talk through your needs and recommend a fully personalised solution.Kiera recommends a Complete Renewal Service which includes:Consultation This is where it all starts: a conversation about the causes of thinning hair and an assessment of your individual needs.

A Brexit deal has been agreed between UK and EU negotiating teams before a meeting of European leaders in Brussels.Prime Minister Boris Johnson tweeted: “We’ve got a great new deal that takes back control.”The two sides have been working on the legal text of a deal, but it will still need the approval of both the UK and European parliaments. The DUP has cast doubt on its sign off, saying they still cannot support it.The Northern Irish party earlier released a statement saying they could not back proposals “as things stand”, and – after the PM’s announcement – said their statement “still stands”.Breaking: EU and UK reach new Brexit agreement was last modified: October 21st, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)
Donegal County Council’s Age Friendly programme has earned high praise for its approach to positive ageing.Cathaoirleach, Cllr. Nicholas Crossan, received a charter from the World Health Organisation (WHO) at a special event in Slane Castle in recognition of Donegal County Council’s work on delivering the Age Friendly Programme in Donegal.The Age Friendly Programme is about enabling people of all ages to actively participate in the community, helping people to stay healthy and active even at the oldest ages and providing appropriate support to those who can no longer look after themselves. Donegal was one of 31 local authorities to be recognised in this way by the Word Health Organisation who are leading this initiative internationally.In April this year, Ireland became the first countries in the world to have full membership across all administrative areas to this significant WHO initiative.An Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar, attended the event which was hosted by Meath County Council and described the Age Friendly Ireland Programme as a really effective way of bringing together a wide range of organisations, businesses and service providers ensuring the interests and needs of older people are being well served.“I commend our local authorities for their hard work in implementing the programme. “That work will help to ensure Ireland is ready to meet the challenges and opportunities presented by the fact that we are living longer.“Ireland may be a small country, but we have shown huge leadership when it comes to positive ageing.“We are well positioned internationally to influence the agenda on Age Friendly communities, and it is gratifying to hear from the World Health Organisation how respected we are as a country for this work,” he added.Pictured at the special event in Slane Castle on Monday recognising Donegal County Councils work on the Age Friendly Programme is Mairead Cranley, Donegal County Council, Cathaoirleach Cllr. Nicholas Crossan, Frank Campbell, Chair of Donegal Older Persons Council, Minister Damian English and Liam Ward, Donegal County Council.Internationally, the world’s population is ageing, and the WHO programme is a response to this demographic trend.Ireland’s population has been getting steadily older since the 1980s. The 65+ age group increased by 19% between 2011 and 2016.This trend will continue, so it is crucial now to plan and prepare for the needs of greater numbers of older people in our communities.Cllr. Crossan commended the work done through the Donegal Age Friendly Alliance.“The Age Friendly Programme has grown steadily in Donegal since its inception a number of years ago with notable initiatives including the Ceol le Cheile intergenerational choir. “Embedding age friendly considerations in the policies and practices of various organisations delivering public services, including the Council, has been to the fore of the Donegal Age Friendly Strategy and I would like to acknowledge the support of the various organisations who work alongside us to drive this initiative.“I would also like to acknowledge the Older Persons Council in Donegal who have been instrumental in influencing, informing and affecting change in this area,” he said.The event in Slane was attended by Alana Officer of the WHO as she formally recognized Ireland’s work in delivering on the aims and ambitions of the WHO Global Network of Age Friendly Cities and Communities, formally acknowledging the membership of each local authority led Age Friendly Programme in Ireland to this network.Minister for Employment Affairs & Social Protection, Regina Doherty; Minister of State for Housing and Urban Development, Damien English; Minster of State for Mental Health and Older People, Jim Daly; and Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Helen McEntee were also in attendance.Donegal was represented by Cathaoirleach Cllr Nicholas Crossan, Liam Ward, Donegal County Council, Frank Campbell Chair of Donegal’s Older Persons Council and Mairead Cranley, Donegal County Council.Council recognised for work on Age Friendly Programme was last modified: December 18th, 2019 by Dionne MeehanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Age Friendly ProgrammedonegalDonegal County CouncilWorld Health Organisation

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Compared to other parts of the state we were lucky. We received an inch and a half to 3 inches of rain with high winds. We were fortunate our corn stood well through that and we had minimal damage from the storm. The worst damage in our area was north and east of us, directly west of Toledo. There are a few farm sites that had some damage, but for the most part our damage was minimal even though we had some strong wind gusts. It is difficult to say when we will be back in the fields. We could possibly be running by the end of this week again.We are progressing along with harvest very well. We are over 85% complete with the corn. We finished soybeans up this last week and it is always a relief to have that completed. Then we focused pretty much on finishing up field operations. Tillage is done and spraying is done and at this time all we have left to do is focus on shelling corn.So I am very pleased with harvest progress to date, given the weather we have had this year. We continue to harvest at every opportunity. I think we are still on track to get things completed in a normal time frame. We strive to be done by the middle of November and we are still on track to be close to that.The corn harvest continues to be a pleasant surprise for us. It has yielded better than what we had planned. We are running well above our APH history for our farms on corn yield and our average harvest moisture to date has been 20.7. We have been pleased with that as well. The later corn is running a little wetter. It is at the 23% moisture range now. That is still fine considering when that corn was planted and the weather.The stalk integrity has improved as we have gotten into the later planted corn. We initially had a few issues on some early-planted corn that had a little wind damage, but it wasn’t difficult to harvest.
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest No change in our outlook this morning. We remain dry through at least Friday in all areas of the state. Once again, the big rains for next week are up for some debate, but all data points toward some action. Temps today will not be quite as warm as yesterday, and temps tomorrow through the end of the week pull back into the upper 40s and low 50s. We see full sunshine through Friday, although clouds may start to push into western areas late on Friday. Showers develop over the a large part of Ohio for Saturday and Sunday, scattered through each day. Combined rain totals will be from a few hundredths to .4” with 80% coverage. The map at right shows combined rain totals out of the system this weekend. On Monday we see clouds take their own sweet time to break up. We wont rule out a few hit and miss showers, particularly in western Ohio and central Ohio. However coverage of any moisture on Monday will be limited to 40% of the state. We follow that up with a sunny and dry Tuesday. Rain remains on track for next Wednesday. The European model moves the system through quickly, while other models suggest a longer tail on this system, with more rain Thursday. We will leave rain totals mostly under half an inch, but will expand the upper end of the range, looking for .2”-.7” over 90% of the state. We may have to boost totals if rains keep good intensity into Thursday. Dry for next Friday, the 2nd and the start of the weekend Saturday morning. Then, however, clouds increase, and we have another strong low coming in from the west for late Saturday the 3rd and going through Sunday the 4th. This system looks to be rather rain laden, but we are pulling back on rains just a bit, because we think thunderstorm potential is lower than our initial thoughts. We are putting rain totals at .25”-1” over the entire state. We continue to look for another system going toward the 7th with .25”-1” potential, and then another front around the 11th, making the first part of November very active and wet.
As she made clear last fall when she sold the assets of her firm mkDesigns to prefab specialist Blu Homes, Michelle Kaufmann wasn’t done with green modular construction. The architect and green-construction advocate has continued designing single-family homes, eco-resorts, and multifamily communities for a range of clients. Most of the projects incorporate modular construction.And this week, Michelle Kaufmann Studio announced a line of homes, called the Zero series, that is based entirely on prefab construction. In addition to delivering on energy efficiency, water conservation, and healthy indoor environments, Kaufmann says, Zero series homes aim to “blur the boundary between the interior and exterior, ‘borrowing’ space from the outdoors, and using the strategy of designing big rather than building big.” The homes, in fact, are not big. In various configurations, a Zero series house may be as small as 422 sq. ft. or as large 2,643 sq. ft., with prices beginning at $66,500.The meaning of ZeroThe homes also are designed to perform to the net-zero-energy standard through a combination of thorough insulation and airtightness and the use of renewable-energy systems, particularly solar power. Modules for the homes, which are being offered through Studio 101 Design, of San Rafael, California, will be built by Blazer Industries, an Aumsville, Oregon, company that specializes in a variety of panel and modular technologies.Two basic Zero series configurations – Ridge0 and Vista0 – are currently available. A third, Contours0, is scheduled to be unveiled on August 17. Kaufmann says Zero series homes are designed to be LEED certified, although the firm will work with clients who want to obtain other green homebuilding certifications.
Sports minister Ajay Maken has written a letter to Defence Minister AK Antony, putting the latter’s ministry in a bind. Maken has urged the defence establishment to amend rules so that Subedar Vijay Kumar can get a triple promotion.Vijay won a silver medal for India in 25m rapid-fire pistol event last week, but then hit out at the Army, saying despite winning numerous laurels for India, he has not been recommended for promotion by his seniors. Vijay is attached to the 16 Dogra Regiment.Maken wrote on Monday that the defence ministry should take notice of the recent policy on out-of-turn promotions framed by the Department of Personnel and Training, which allows three such promotions for central government civilian employees.”The armed forces have been in forefront of promoting sports excellence and it would be in the fitness of things that there is parity in the award of out of turn promotion for all sports persons who have excelled in sports events internationally or nationally so as to obviate any sense of deprivation in respect of defence service employees on one hand and reward them equally for the excellence in sports events on the other hand,” Maken wrote.”Outstanding sportspersons achieving high level of excellence deserve consideration even for a third out of turn promotion in recognition of their performances. Such a move will go a long way in recognising the contribution of sportspersons in enhancing the country’s position in the arena of world sports.”The issue of immediate promotion as an officer might be tricky, as it involves different skill sets and training, but the controversy touches on the issue of parity.advertisementSources in the Army say that they would like to proceed by the rules and would give all due support to him. But there is no rule which allows for a triple promotion in case of excelling is a sports event. Rules only provide for a double promotion.

One of them was to impose a pilot moratorium on pretext stops, where an officer may pull someone over for a minor violation, while looking for evidence of another offense.The report said the practice has “negatively impacted the trust and increased the tension between police and citizen interactions during stops.”The board felt the pretext stops should be examined and recommended a pilot program to suspend stops in two communities for a trial six month period to see if that would improve relations between police and the community.Detective Jack Schaefer, the only police officer on the advisory board dissented and said the practice was a useful police tool to make arrests and solve crimes.The report also looked at training practices. Board members noted that an estimated 30 percent of the recruit candidates each year come from active “on the ground” military backgrounds.The report said the unbalanced workforce can lead to a certain “culture” in the department, “highlighting the premise it is easier to teach a candidate to fire a weapon than to teach them to effectively interact in communities of color.”The board suggested that the department extend its reach to people from other backgrounds. The Reverend Gerald Brown who is the executive director of the citizens panel said historically black colleges might be one place to recruit new officers.The recommendations also addressed officer wellness, especially in the area of post traumatic stress. The board suggested that the department initiate PTSD testing every six months for officers in the first year of the job.The San Diego Police Department said it welcomed the efforts of the CAB. According to police spokesperson, Lieutenant Shawn Takeuchi, “seeking community input is a key component of community oriented policing.”The recommendations will be presented at the city council committee on Public Safety and Livable Neighborhoods on June 26.
