My best makeup beauty tips

Written by Yasiv Marin

1) Never wash your face with soap. Soap contains an astrigent that strips away moisture, therefore damages your skin eventually.

2) Always cleanse, tone and moisturize. Milky cleansers are best to use (eg. Marcelle Cleansing milk).

3) Never squeeze pimples, if you find that you're getting lots of them, forget about overrepparttar counter products.....they won't work on you, they only work on people that get a zit once in a blue moon. Instead, get to a dermatologist as soon as possible and you're skin will be clear in no time. Trust me, I used to have severe acne, I saw a dermatologist, 4 months later my face was smooth as a baby's butt and it still is.

4) Apply a yellow-toned concealer under dark circles and anywhere you might see imperfections. Next, apply foundation with a sponge, blend smoothly and make sure it matches your skintone!!! So many girls now a days look like they're wearing masks and that's because they're not choosingrepparttar 148661 right color for their skin.

5) Powder your face with a translucent powder and use a nice, big, soft, puffy brush (my favorite brushes are QUO brand). Powdering will take shine off of your face and easerepparttar 148662 application of blush.

The Neurological Exam: Evaluating the Master Organ

Written by Gary Cordingley

How does a mind contemplate itself? That's a philosophical question I'll leave to minds smarter than mine, but what I can tell you is how to examinerepparttar brain and other parts ofrepparttar 148660 nervous system.

Most people are familiar with how doctors examine a heart or set of lungs. The physical exam of these organs consists mainly of using a stethoscope to listen to them in action. But when it comes to examining components ofrepparttar 148661 nervous system—consisting ofrepparttar 148662 brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves and muscles—a stethoscope is pretty useless. The nervous system doesn't make sounds thatrepparttar 148663 doctor can listen to (thoughrepparttar 148664 arteries inrepparttar 148665 neck that deliver blood torepparttar 148666 brain can be usefully listened to). But because people can have medical disorders that damagerepparttar 148667 nervous system, it is every bit as important to have a method for evaluating this organ as for any other.

The method is calledrepparttar 148668 neurological exam. Because different parts ofrepparttar 148669 nervous system do different things,repparttar 148670 basic idea ofrepparttar 148671 neurological exam is to putrepparttar 148672 patient through a number of mini-exams, each evaluatingrepparttar 148673 function of a different component. And what a variety of functions there are! In fact, apart from exposure to an inspiring teacher, this is what drew me intorepparttar 148674 study of neurology inrepparttar 148675 first place—the sheer diversity ofrepparttar 148676 neurological exam.

This is an organ responsible for jobs as diverse as thinking, remembering, smelling, tasting, seeing, hearing, speaking, moving, walking, balancing, feeling and, yes, even contemplating itself—though I confess that my neurological exam doesn't include an assessment of self-contemplation. Moreover,repparttar 148677 nervous system handles many infrastructure tasks like controlling body-temperature, pulse, blood-pressure, breathing and enabling a person to urinate at a time and place of their choosing. What's not to admire about an organ system that can do so many things!

The many mini-tests ofrepparttar 148678 neurological exam are bundled together inrepparttar 148679 following sub-groupings: mental status exam, cranial nerve exam, motor exam, sensory exam and evaluation of stance and walking. I'll provide a brief overview of each.

The mental status exam focuses onrepparttar 148680 cerebrum which has a wrinkly, gray, outer surface usually shown in pictures ofrepparttar 148681 brain. The cerebrum is divided into eight lobes which includes pairs of frontal lobes, parietal lobes, temporal lobes and—bringing uprepparttar 148682 rear—the occipital lobes. Each handles different mental tasks. In fact, even within a lobe, many different jobs are handled. Sorepparttar 148683 usual mental status exam consists of observingrepparttar 148684 patient's behavior inrepparttar 148685 exam room and using a variety of standard tests to checkrepparttar 148686 patient's orientation to time and place, attention, memory, speech, comprehension of language, memory, calculation and ability to trackrepparttar 148687 relative positions of objects in space.

The next grouping of mini-tests,repparttar 148688 cranial nerve exam, also assessesrepparttar 148689 functioning of parts ofrepparttar 148690 cerebrum, but additionally focuses onrepparttar 148691 brainstem. The brainstem is located atrepparttar 148692 base ofrepparttar 148693 brain and connectsrepparttar 148694 cerebrum above torepparttar 148695 spinal cord below. The cranial nerve exam includes tests of smelling, vision, constriction ofrepparttar 148696 pupils, eye-movement, facial sensation, facial movement, hearing, and action of certain muscles inrepparttar 148697 throat, tongue, neck and shoulders.
