More than any other bodily injury, getting hit in the testicles is probably what every man dreads most. Of all the soft, fleshy spots on the human body, none register the same kind of incapacitating, end-of-the-world pain as the family jewels. What causes such inconceivable pain? Well, for starters, a shot to the balls is just like any other physical strike to the body: because of nerves, itвs gonna hurt. Unlike most other parts of your body, though, your scrotum lacks protection in the form of bones, large muscle mass, and fat. The testes are just wee little glands, and theyвre going to absorb the whole force of the blow all on their own. Another thing that makes a ball shot so painful is the same thing that makes almost every other sensation down there so much fun. Your groin has a
Coughs are an ever-present wintertime companion. But does coughing serve any purpose at all, or is it just a clever method that viruses use to spread? is a normal reflex to clear the airway of small particles, microorganisms, mucus, or food or drinks accidentally going down "the wrong pipe. " But when we are plagued with a pesky cold or infection, cough takes on a new dimension. What often starts as a tickle in the throat at the first sign of an upper respiratory tract infection can easily turn into a full-blown dry cough, most likely followed by a hacking, mucus-producing cough that can be very uncomfortable. Why do we cough when we have a flu or cold infection? We examine what research has revealed about the mechanisms behind cough and who benefits: the virus, or us? In an in the

Ultimately, the legal system in the UK upholds fairness in society. Laws ensure victims of crime receive justice and criminals receive the relevant penalty for their wrong-doing. The end goal is to rehabilitate criminals so they are prepared to integrate back into mainstream society and to reduce the overall rate of reoffending, breaking the destructive cycle of crime. Different types of laws have been around for hundreds of years. When you see a judge or magistrate sitting in court, you are actually looking at the result of 1,000 years of legal evolution. The UKвs justice system is constantly changing to keep up with society, and despite its flaws, it is regarded as one of the best in the world. Laws have changed massively over the years. Going to court in the 21 century may be a tough
You will usually go home within 3-4 days. Within a day of laparoscopic hysterectomy most patients require only oral pain medication. A urinary catheter (a soft latex tube in the bladder) may be inserted in theatre and left in situ until the following morning for patient comfort (to avoid getting up to the toilet). An intravenous drip will also be inserted in theatre and be removed within 24-48 hours. Anti clotting stockings (thick half length stockings) will be fitted. P Please use until fully mobile.

A small amount of vaginal bleeding is common after this surgery and it may persist for 6 weeks. ...
Long story short: It's the acid, and any acid will do. Food colourings are a type of dye known as an. Their effectiveness relies on hydrogen bonding which only works in an acidic environment. It's not that the vinegar does anything special - not exactly. Rather, adding a few drops of food colouring to a large amount of water would give you something that's not acidic at all, which will diminish or totally eliminate its effectiveness as a dye. Including vinegar in the mix simply allows you to stretch your rations, so to speak - to dilute the colouring in a whole lot of liquid without making it useless as a dye in the process. Basically, you're creating a, which is a well-known term in the textile world, as it's used to dye wool and other fabrics. Warm temperatures (140-180б F) also aid in
We laugh when weБre happy and we cry when weБre sad, but sometimes itБs not always black and white. Shows like AmericaБs Funniest Home Videos and Impractical Jokers provide us with slapstick humor that elicits laughter at the expense of others. Although everyone has a different, why is it universal to laugh when someone falls down or gets hit in the groin? Dr. William F. Fry, psychiatrist and founder of gelotology Б Б at Stanford University suggests, Б Б puts a real-life event in a non-serious context that prompts an unusual psychological reaction. In other words, this explains why, while it's not humorous seeing someone fall to his death from a six-story building, it can be funny to see someone fall on the street. A serious overtone is set when someone falls out of a window and dies,
Different pathogens (fungal, bacterial, or even parasitic) can infect the nail plate either primarily or through involvement of structures such as the nail folds, with secondary extension to affect the nail plate. , Onychomycosis is a fungal (dermatophytes, yeasts, or nondermatophyte molds) infection of the toenails or fingernails. It is by far the most common nail infection, representing around half of all nail diseases and affecting 10% to 20% of adults, particularly the elderly. , Increased risk of onychomycosis is associated with multiple factors, including male sex, old age, smoking, underlying medical diseases (eg, peripheral arterial disease, diabetes, and immunodeficiency), and predisposing genetic factors. Dermatophytes, mostly Trichophyton rubrum and Trichophyton

Why does chopping an onion make you cry? Unstable chemicals. Onions produce the chemical irritant known as syn-propanethial-S-oxide. It stimulates the eyes' lachrymal glands so they release tears. Scientists used to blame the enzyme allinase for the instability of substances in a cut onion. Recent studies from Japan, however, proved that lachrymatory-factor synthase, (a previously undiscovered enzyme) is the culprit (Imani et al, 2002). ...
