Sergeant Lee Stephens, 42, deserted his duty on 12 shiftsA hero policeman honoured by David Cameron for rescuing six people from a burning building has been sacked for skipping shifts to see his boyfriend.Sergeant Lee Stephens, 42, deserted his duty on 12 occasions to drive home or to a hilltop cafe to spend time with his new partner.But he was caught out when senior officers checked the GPS on his police car – and discovered he was 16 miles away from his station.Stephens won a police bravery award in 2011 presented to him by then Prime Minister David Cameron for helping rescue a family of six from a burning building.But his 13-year police career was ended after it was discovered he was bunking off for up to an hour and 40 minutes at a time.Stephens said he was skiving because his partner was dealing with some personal problems – but a picture he put on Facebook showed them ‘smiling and happy’. He admitted he may have kissed or hugged his lover while meeting up with him at the picturesque Caerphilly Mountain cafe near Cardiff.A disciplinary hearing was told Stephens went missing while he was in charge of a team of ten officers based in Bargoed, Gwent, in South Wales.Prosecutor Barnabas Branston told the hearing: ‘He was there to supervise and do everything that supervision involves, he was there to set an example.’He has epically failed in his role as a police officer, he was there to provide support.’It was not a one-off, it was not an emergency. If it was a one-off it could have been justified.’He pulled the wool over everyone’s eyes, he does not have integrity whatsoever because he does what he wants.’The hearing was told Stephens was in full uniform and drove a marked police car during his secret meetups. Father-of-two Stephens admitted to four allegations of misconduct. He told the hearing that his partner was having problems due to a previous relationship.He said: ‘I thought I could juggle personal issues with work and looking back now I realise I couldn’t do both.’I was juggling both my family and my partner. If I know what I had done now I would have accessed a GP and got some time off work. I have let my team down.’An independent panel found Stephens had committed gross misconduct on two allegations and was ‘dishonest and lacked integrity’.Panel chairman Peter Jones said Stephens’ disappearances meant that ‘confidence could not be maintained in his ability to serve as a police officer.’Stephens, who was said to be ‘professional and hard-working’, was dismissed without notice from his £41,000-a-year job with Gwent Police.

★More News Channel – Entertainment Video►► http://bit.ly/2zUac3v
Up to 30 volunteer firefighters were unable to get to the frontline of Victoria’s bushfire crisis and help save homes on Sunday because of gutless thieves who stole most of their equipment.Unknown offenders broke into Parwan Country Fire Authority’s Exford Road headquarters in the small town 45 kilometres west of Melbourne on Saturday night, where a long list of equipment was stolen.They included a fire hydrant, breathing apparatus and cylinders, pumps, a ride on Mower, radio, torches, a GPS and an air compressor.Hours later, firefighters across the state were called to help battle several out of control blazes burning near Cobden, Terang, Garvoc, Camperdown and Gazette in Victoria’s south west.’Parwan fire brigade have become a victim once again of what is becoming all too common to fire stations,’ the bridge posted on its Facebook page on Sunday.’A break in occurred between 11pm and 6am last night, which has left our volunteers angry and disappointed. We are now operational again however it could have been a very different story if we were called out overnight – especially with a total fire ban currently in place.’ Share this article Share  The brazen robbery has left firefighters angry.’It’s horrible, just horrible to all CFA members and the public also i guess. It just leaves one numb and dead inside to think people would violate a volunteer department that helps the community,’ a firefighter’s wife posted.’You have made my husband and all the Parwan CFA members feel down and out and I won’t forgive you for doing this to them and I hope your caught and hung out to dry.’Brigade captain Graeme Miles told 3AW presenter Neil Mitchell the robbery left the the 30-member brigade unable to attend the bushfires in Victoria’s south west, where up to 18 homes have been destroyed. ‘We were supposed to get down to Cobden but with all the mucking around with police, we couldn’t go,’ Mr Miles told the Melbourne radio station.’We had a call out last night but we’ve got no breathing apparatus so if we’ve got a house fire in the area, we’ll have to call another brigade to come and help us.’ The brigade does have CCTV but it hasn’t working for the last week.Mr Miles doesn’t know when the vital breathing apparatus equipment will be replaced and all of his firefighting colleagues are all volunteers. Mr Miles himself is a farmer. ‘It’s the third break in we’ve had in the last couple of years,’ he said.A Victoria Police spokeswoman confirmed to Daily Mail Australia it is investigating the incident.All of the stolen equipment all have CFA identification on them.Anyone with information about the robbery is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Mysterious skeleton baffles locals – but do you know what it is? | Breaking News US/Australia

★More News Channel – Entertainment Video►► http://bit.ly/2zUac3v
The arrival of a freaky skeleton stuck on fence has left residents baffled and many wild guesses over what it could be.But the mystery of the weird discovery by a wildlife rescuer in Sydney’s north has been solved.The long skeleton was found on the Rowland Reserve boat ramp in Bayview by Nicole Wedlock.Ms Wedlock, a carer and rescuer at Sydney Wildlife, posted photos of the bones on Facebook asking for help finding out what it is.Many people commented certain they knew what it was with some saying it was a fish, others claiming it as a marsupial and others unsure if it came from the water, Seven News reports. But those who believed it was a fish would be correct.Experts have confirmed it was the remains of a billfish – a fish with a large spear-like bill used for slashing its prey.The black marlin variety of the species is often found off the coast of Australia and billfish are often seen as trophy fish.Billfish are usually found in tropical or subtropical waters. Mark McGrouther from the Australian Museum helped solve the mystery.’The reason that I can say with confidence that it is a species of billfish is that it has overlapping flanges that ‘lock’ the vertebrae together resulting in the spine of the fish being very rigid,’ he told Seven. But another expert said it appeared the fish’s characteristic nose had been removed. Professor David Bellwood, from James Cook University, told the broadcaster he believed whoever caught the fish had managed to saw off the bill, saying he had seen this many times in the Mediterranean.There are many different varieties of billfish and they are found throughout the world’s oceans.They are described as ‘highly migratory’ but are most commonly found in the tropical or sub-tropical areas.Billfish usually feed on small fish or cephalopods like squid and crustaceans.

Beer company’s ad BANNED for ‘vilifying’ people with red hair | Breaking News US/Australia

★More News Channel – Entertainment Video►► http://bit.ly/2zUac3v
A new advertising campaign was banned after causing a stir for its slogan to help ‘stop the spread of the Ginger Gene’. The Carlton United Breweries ad was banned after Ad Standards was flooded with complaints that the slogan was ‘offensive, bullying, racist and vilifying’ those with ginger hair, Mumbrella reported.The advertisement in question was for CUB’s Rusty Yak Gingery Ale line of beer and was made by Clemenger BBDO Melbourne.The Ad Standards website states that after receiving a complaint they assess whether the advertisement in question goes against the Code of Initiatives. ‘It’s very offensive for the advertisement to be discriminating against those with red hair,’ one complaint said.  ‘Children already get bullied at school for having red hair, and advertisements like this only further encourage that type of bullying.’ CUB immediately responded to the criticism in a statement and said in their view the advertisement was not racist.’The complaints address discrimination and vilification against people on account of their red hair, but this attribute does not fall within race,’ the statement read.  ‘The advertisements do not promote discrimination or vilification as defined above in a literal or figurative way.’ The statement went on to say that the ad was not negative towards red heads but rather a ‘humourous’ and ‘comical announcement about the ‘ginger gene’ in beer.  However Ad Standards rebutted CUB’s claims and said hair colour could be attributed to race definition. ‘DNA can be considered to be related to ancestry and descent and therefore considered that in this context the reference to people with red hair falls within the definition of race,’ the statement said. The advertising watchdog said the single line about stopping ‘the spread of the ginger gene’ was a step too far. After it was all said and done CUB stood by its claims but removed the add in a sign of showing respect to their consumers and the complaints that were lodged. According to the Ad Standards website the most complained about advertisement last year was one produced by ultra tune Australia. In the ad, a muffler falls of a car that has two women inside and starts a fire. The two women get a fire extinguisher trying to stop the fire before leaping away as the car explodes. The ad received 359 complaint sin total based on the grounds it was discriminating or vilifying and exploitative or degrading. Ad Standards dismissed the complaint.

Selena Gomez seen in Sydney on luxury boat revealing transplant scar | Breaking News US/Australia

★More News Channel – Entertainment Video►► http://bit.ly/2zUac3v
She’s just touched down in Sydney ahead of the Hillsong Church’s Colour Conference – a festival her former beau Justin Bieber attends annually.And on Monday, Selena Gomez was seen soaking up the Sydney sun on a luxury boat in the city’s Harbour. The 25-year-old Texan native showed off her figure in a two-piece bikini and her kidney transplant surgery scar, located at the top of her right thigh was clearly visible.Pairing a bright orange bikini top with plain black bottoms, the singing sensation was accompanied by friends on the cruise.Her former flame Justin Bieber was nowhere to be seen as she laughed and joked with gal pals on the day out.  Selena, who underwent a kidney transplant in September last year, first showcased her sizable surgery scar while holidaying in Mexico in December.The mark is unlikely to be from the transplant but rather from a second emergency operation Selena received on one of her arteries following. Selena received a kidney from her best friend Francia Raisa, which she needed to survive Lupus. Lounging atop the luxury boat, Selena read a book with a bottle of water, sunscreen, tanning oil, glasses and an unlikely half of an avocado at her side.Taking a little time out to self-indulge sans friends, the 25-year-old embraced the Australian sunshine alone for while.Later on, the former Disney star was seen taking a dip in the Harbour and wore plain white tank top for the swim.On Monday, the beauty arrived at Sydney airport carrying a Ukulele while walking arm-in-arm with another female.The sighting comes one week after reports surfaced that Selena and Justin had ended their relationship.Selena and Justin – who dated on and off from 2011 to 2015 – got back together in November and were inseparable until March. It has been claimed the Hands To Myself hitmaker is ‘taking time to herself’ away from the spotlight in a bid to come to terms with the split and reconcile her relationship with her mother, who was blamed for the break-up

Revealed: Why chocolate REALLY turns white if you don’t eat it quickly | Breaking News US/Australia

★More News Channel – Entertainment Video►► http://bit.ly/2zUac3v
There’s nothing more comforting than a silky bar of chocolate – but every year, millions of pounds worth of bars go to waste because they become speckled with what looks like white powder.Now it can be revealed that this strange phenomenon is due to the fat particles in the chocolate rising to the surface – and it’s all down to the temperature we store our treats at.Keeping chocolate in too cold or too warm a place will make the so-called ‘fat bloom’ appear, which leads to thousands of customer complaints every year, according to Channel 4’s Food Unwrapped.Co-presenter Jimmy Doherty investigates the cause of this white bloom on tonight’s show, and finds out that scientists have only recently discovered how the white speckles appear on the chocolate’s surface.Using the world’s biggest X-ray at a factory in Hamburg, Germany, technicians discovered that the white powder rises to the surface through tiny cracks in the chocolate, which occur when a bar hasn’t been stored at the correct temperature. Share this article Share The show later reveals during a visit to the Lindt factory in Switzerland that it’s best to keep chocolate stored between 14 and 18 degrees Celsius to protect it from bloom.Fat bloom isn’t harmful and a chocolate bar is still edible even if you can see white specks on it.Scientist Dr Stephen Roth explained to Jimmy how fat bloom appears on chocolate.He said: ‘Crystalline fat melts and the fat can start moving via the cracks.’This is where the fat can go into and then it goes to the surface.’ Fat bloom is the biggest cause of customer complaints and costs the chocolate industry millions of pounds every year.  Chocolatiers are working on ways to prevent bloom from occurring.The best solution at the moment is to precisely temper the chocolate which creates the perfect crystalline conditions, making it more difficult for the fat to separate and form bloom. However Lindt’s chocolatiers say the ultimate way to prevent bloom is simply to eat the chocolate quickly before it has a chance to form.

Federal Court rules Heinz misled consumers with kids’ fruit snacks | Breaking News US/Australia

★More News Channel – Entertainment Video►► http://bit.ly/2zUac3v
The now defunct Heinz Little Kids Shredz product range included three varietiesFood giant Heinz misled consumers by falsely advertising a fruit snack range marketed at young children as healthy, the Federal Court has ruled.The court upheld part of Australian Competition and Consumer Commission’s complaint against Heinz’s Little Kids Shredz range, which was sold nationally from 2013 until May 2016.The ACCC alleged images and statements on the range were advertised as being healthy and nutritious for young children, despite a sugar content of 66 per cent.’Heinz represented that (the range) was beneficial to the health of children aged 1-3 years when, by reason of their high sugar content and sticky texture, it was not … Heinz thereby engaged in conduct that was misleading or deceptive, or likely to mislead or deceive,’ Justice Richard White said.’It ought to have known that representations to that effect were false.’ ACCC Acting Chair Delia Rickard welcomed the court’s decision and hoped it sent a firm warning to other businesses about making false or misleading claims.’We were particularly concerned by Heinz’ conduct because the Shredz products were marketed as being beneficial for young children,’ Ms Richard said.’Heinz’s Shredz products consisted of over 60 per cent sugar, significantly higher than that of natural fruit and vegetables. An apple in comparison contains around 10 per cent sugar.’  Share this article Share The consumer watchdog used renowned nutritionist Rosemary Stanton as an expert witness.’This product is not that nutritious, it’s not healthy and it’s too high in sugar,’ she told the court last July.However, Justice White said the ACCC had failed to prove the products were not nutritious because they ‘did have some of the nutrients necessary to sustain human life’.He also dismissed the ACCC’s claim that the range discouraged children’s development of healthy eating habits, rather than encouraging them as the packaging suggested.Heinz said it was ‘disappointed with the outcome’ of the case but ‘respects the decision that has been made’.’Heinz is committed to providing high quality food products and to communicating clearly and transparently with consumers on its packaging,’ a company statement said.’We are presently reviewing this matter carefully to see if there are any further learnings which can be applied going forward.’ Justice White adjourned the case with a hearing on penalties and other orders sought by the ACCC to be held at a later date.

She’s the pop princess who’s well-known for her hectic schedule.But it appears Delta Goodrem spends her spare time sneaking in viewings of Married At First Sight.According to Woman’s Day, the 33-year-old recently met with series star Ryan Gallagher, and didn’t hold back giving her opinion about his famous ex ‘wife’, Davina Rankin. The publication reports that ‘Delta isn’t a fan of Davina’, and let her feelings be known when she met Ryan at a recent taping of The Voice, on which she stars as a celebrity coach.  Perhaps it’s no surprise the songstress enjoys the odd episode of MAFS, given it airs on the same network as her popular singing show.Woman’s Day alleges that whilst meeting with Ryan, ‘Delta was overheard calling Davina a nasty name’. Daily Mail Australia has reached out to Delta’s management for comment on the magazine’s claims.Indeed, Davina attracted much ire during her recent stint on MAFS, where she was involved in a cheating scandal with her co-star, Dean Wells.Instagram model Davina went behind ‘husband’ Ryan’s back, meeting Dean for several secret catch-ups. The brunette beauty received large amounts of backlash from the general public. Recently speaking about the impact the criticism had on her, Davina stated: ‘I’ve suffered from really bad anxiety… The last few months I haven’t had the motivation to go out and do things I usually would. Instead of going out and doing things, I would retreat and spend time inside.’ However, the bikini model will return to the series for its explosive reunion episode, due to air later this week.

The four personality types known for being late are revealed | Breaking News US/Australia

★More News Channel – Entertainment Video►► http://bit.ly/2zUac3v
While we are all faced with a frantic morning every now and then, one Australian scientist says there are certain personality types that are prone to ‘chronic’ lateness.Appearing on Today Extra recently, Dr Karl Kruszelnicki said lateness is often a trait of four distinct personalities – The Dreamer, The Crisis Maker, The Perfectionist and The Defier.’If you are a really obsessive person who is really driven by goals then if one minute ticks by you think “Oh my God the whole minute has gone by” but you only thought it was 56 seconds,’ Dr Karl said. ‘If you are a relaxed and laid back person the minute goes by and you don’t even worry about it.’ 1. THE DREAMER These people will be in a hotel room and think “I can have a shower, pack, get down to the lobby, check out and be in a taxi within three minutes”,’ Dr Karl said.In his book, Karl, the Universe and Everything, Dr Karl said ‘Dreamers live in a different reality’.’They see travel times as really short – and imagine that it’s perfectly reasonable to fit five jobs into a five minute window.’Dr Karl recommends travel apps on a smartphone to help these people as it helps them to ‘see the reality of the situation on a screen’.   Share this article Share 2. THE CRISIS MAKER ‘These people think they will only perform well if there is a lot of stress on them and they love the adrenaline rush,’ Dr Karl said.’Their motto is “If it wasn’t for the last minute, nothing would ever get done”.’These people ‘don’t start until just before the deadline’ and ‘prefer desperately rushing to get to their next appointment, than strolling calmly into the building five to 10 minutes early’.Dr Karl recommends these people get their adrenaline rush from physical activities instead of an approaching deadline.  3. THE PERFECTIONIST   ‘Even if they know they have to be at a meeting Perfectionists will insist on having the dishwasher packed perfectly first,’ Dr Karl said. Dr Karl said the Perfectionist’s appearance and the project they’re presenting also have to be perfect ‘ but they ‘don’t realise that arriving late at the meeting rules out the possibility of a perfect presentation’. The scientist recommends these people ‘learn to see the big picture, and realise that small details can be left till later’.4. THE DEFIER ‘This is the person who wants to stand up against the filthy capitalist oppressors by being late deliberately,’ Dr Karl said. Dr Karl said these people ‘feel somebody has to stand up against the broad authority of our existing societal constructs that tell us what to do, and when to do it’. These people, Dr Karl said, need to focus on being “pro-active” rather than “reactive”.

Television icon Frankie J Holden has revealed his popular caravan park has been damaged by fire ripped through their tiny coastal town – but he won’t know what is left until he is allowed to return to the site. Holden and his soapie star wife Michelle Pettigrove moved to Tathra on the NSW south coast three years ago and bought the beachside caravan park – one of three parks in the pretty coastal town. The holiday park was in the direct line of a bushfire which ripped through the coastal town on Sunday, destroying more than 70 homes. But as fire fighters worked to control the blaze on Monday, the stars and their guests are no closer to knowing what they will go back to. ‘We know we have lost some cabins,’ the couple wrote on Facebook. But they are still unclear of the details. ‘It is still unsafe to enter Tathra. We will update you with more information as soon as we have it.’ There have been some reports the park was destroyed in the blaze, as guest fled along the beach however these have not yet been confirmed as access to the town is difficult. A pre-recorded message on the holiday park’s answering machine says it is ‘another beautiful day’ in the region. The couple have urged guests with upcoming bookings to stay home until they know how much damage has been done to the property. Frankie J Holden first shot to fame as frontman for the Australian retro-rock band Ol’ 55 before becoming an actor – appearing in Prisoner and Round the Twist.His wife Michelle Pettigrove is well known for her role as Kate Bryant in A Country Practice. The couple live at the park with their teenage daughter. Former guest have responded to the couple’s Facebook posts wishing them well.’Thinking of all the people in Tathra and your holiday park losses. Having just been through a fire ourselves it’s horrible and stressful. Stay safe and take care. Lots of love to you all Frankie and Michelle,’ one person wrote.  Meanwhile the neighboring Big 4 Park is said to have stood through the blaze which burned through the town on Sunday. ‘The owners have lost their home but the park is untouched,’ a friend claimed on Facebook.The third park, Tathra Beach Motor Village was also damaged in the firestorm with the reception area being burnt out – but the owners told Daily Mail Australia they won’t know the extent of the damage until they’re allowed back into town. Police have urged locals and holiday makers not to return to town until the area is deemed ‘safe’ by firefighters.

On Sunday’s episode of Married At First Sight, Dean Wells was reduced to a blubbering mess after being spectacularly dumped by his wife Tracey Jewel.And the vengeful bride has now revealed what happened between herself and her cheating ‘husband’ after the cameras finally stopped rolling.While the end of the episode saw Tracey drive off into the sunset leaving Dean crying and in shock, the brunette says it wasn’t long before they were back in touch.Speaking on The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Monday, 35-year-old Tracey said: ‘I wanted to see him and make sure he was okay. I wanted to say a proper goodbye’. However, MAFS producers whisked her away from the scene in a vintage car before dropping her off at a hotel for the night.’It was brutal,’ Tracey recalled. But Tracey soon checked in on Dean, catching up with a phone call.’We had a chat the next day and made sure we were all good. He said “I was finally blindsided by you” and I said, “Now you know what it feels like!”‘Jackie sighed sympathetically, but crude co-host Kyle Sandilands pointedly asked: ‘Why didn’t you text him when you got back to the hotel to get a last bit of peen?’The Perth-based self-help author firmly told the radio presenters that she and Dean had not been intimate since their TV split.She then revealed she has ‘found romance’ with a new man, who is believed to be fellow Married At First Sight star Sean Thomsen.Described by Kyle as the ‘short, lesbian-looking’ contestant’, Tracey giggled when asked about his identity.’I guess you’ll find out!

Why Ubergate could destroy the Today show | Breaking News US/Australia

★More News Channel – Entertainment Video►► http://bit.ly/2zUac3v
Veteran journalist Peter Ford says exposing the tensions between Karl Stefanovic and Georgie Gardner could turn off Today viewers who want to see ‘happy’ presenters.Karl’s ‘b**chy’ phone conversation with his brother Peter, which was overheard during a recent Uber ride, was revealed in New Idea magazine this week. During the 45-minute discussion, Karl allegedly complained about his female co-host and warned Peter that her future on the breakfast program was in doubt unless she ‘stepped up’.On Monday, Ford told The Kyle and Jackie O Show that ‘research shows people who watch people on TV want to believe (they) really want to be there and that they’re happy and they’re grateful for their jobs’.  He added: ‘The difficulty is… the arrogance here and the unhappiness that comes through that will be a very hard wash’. Ford explained the ‘leaked’ Uber phone call will not help Karl and Georgie’s already ‘frosty relationship’.’It is a frosty relationship, but no-one pretends it’s not. It’s an unusual coupling, so throwing this into the mix is an interesting one,’ he said. During the interview, Ford touched on how the Ubergate saga could possibly impact the Today show’s ratings.’In the medium and longer term, it’ll be interesting. The Today show has only won one week this year and that was the week Karl was off,’ Ford said. Ford also shared his opinion that the Stefanovic brothers are the ‘victims’ in the whole affair.’Let’s say first off, Peter and Karl are the victims in this story,’ he said. ‘It’s a horrible invasion of privacy… it really is, and we’d all hate it, we would all hate it.’He added: ‘And it’s very much like the downside of being famous, but unfortunately it happened, it’s out there, people are talking about it.’Ford did say that it was ‘lucky’ the content of the conversation between Karl, 43, and Peter was somewhat ‘professional’.’The other thing I would say is they’re lucky that all of the stuff that’s being reported is all at a professional level,’ he said.  ‘Even with Georgie, even though it is going to cause friction in there, it’s not like they’re saying she’s a horrible person.’Ford’s comments come after Georgie Gardner offered a thinly-veiled rebuke to Karl on Monday’s episode of the Today show. While Georgie did not address the phone conversation directly, she took the opportunity during a light-hearted segment about sausage dogs to brand Karl ‘pathetic’.

Teenage girl take selfies, sends messages during brain surgery | Breaking News US/Australia

★More News Channel – Entertainment Video►► http://bit.ly/2zUac3v
A brave teenage girl has undergone brain surgery while wide awake – and she couldn’t resist sending a few selfies from the operating theatre.Jess Banik, 19, has suffered from epilepsy since she was four years old, and has had two brain resection surgeries ten years apart at Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne.During her most recent surgery she stayed awake throughout and spent time on her phone taking photos and messaging her family. ‘Awake’ brain surgery is designed to protect the parts of the brain which control speech and movement.’My friends were pretty amazed I did that type of thing. Surgery is scary enough, but when you’re having it done awake, people tell me that it’s just another level of courage,’ Ms Banik told the Herald Sun.She began taking medication after her first seizure but by the time she was eight they became uncontrollable.Surgeons removed abnormal brain tissue while protecting other parts of her brain.After the first surgery she continued to suffer from seizures occasionally, but it was the prospect of not being able to drive that led to the teenager from Woodside Beach in rural Victoria undergoing another operation. ‘I was pretty relaxed about being awake – it’s pretty cool, but it’s freaky – but for ages my main concern was having my hair shaved,’ Ms Banik said.On February 20 she entered the operating theatre. A wall of sheets was pinned up behind her so she couldn’t see the scalpels working on her head.She was still able to hear the drills as surgeons removed part of her skull, about the size of her palm.Ms Banik was given pain blockers but once her brain was exposed, sedation was stopped to test her speech.She sent a message to her mother Vanessa saying: ‘Hi Mum. Just woke up. All’s going well. Don’t worry about me too much’.Ms Banik also sent a photo of herself with a surgeon giving a thumb’s up to her sister Georgie. Jess was already back at work just three weeks after the surgery, and will be weaned off anti-seizure medication for the next nine months.If she stays seizure-free for a year a doctor will approve her driver’s licence application – something the teenager is eagerly looking forward to.’It will be so much better not to have to stress about if I’m going to have a seizure,’ she said.’Life will be so much better.’

Shh! Anti-agers no one but you needs know about: Unsightly skin tags | Breaking News US/Australia

★More News Channel – Entertainment Video►► http://bit.ly/2zUac3v
My problem is skin tags around my neck and upper shoulder area. What is the best way to get rid of them? I’ve heard you can zap them with radio-frequency waves. Does it make any difference if I am currently on medication and I need to avoid bleeding? Share this article Share Dr Sarah Tonks from London’s The Lovely Clinic (thelovelyclinic.co.uk) recommends electrolysis to nip them off.This involves using a galvanic or radiofrequency current to cut each tag, while at the same time cauterising the area, so there is no bleeding. It feels like being pinched with hot tweezers. Prices in beauty or medical clinics around the country would vary from £50 to £200, depending on how many tags you have.Most skin tags are perfectly harmless or hereditary, but, Sarah warns, it is important to realise that a sudden increase (especially in the neck, armpit and groin) in the appearance of tags can point to insulin resistance and, therefore, be a sign of early-onset Type 2 diabetes, or other ailments such as polycystic ovary syndrome or hypothyroidism.So it’s a good idea to ask your GP for a full history and examination to see if there are any other corroborating signs pointing to these conditions — just to be sure!
