Name A Cockroach After Your Ex This Valentine’s Day

Published by:

You must never take for granted your local exterminator service because they can save the home or business from a pest infestation. Can you imagine sharing the same space with rodents, cockroaches and flies? Not only are pests a nuisance; they are health hazards that must be eradicated immediately.

If you are still bitter about a break-up and want to take revenge this coming Valentine’s Day, you can name the cockroach after the ex. Getting Revenge on My Ex Day is an anti-Valentine promotion that runs until Valentine’s Day. Last year, the promotion was such a big hit that they made it bigger and better for 2020.

There is also Quit Bugging Me Day that is inspired by El Paso Zoo. Cockroaches will be fed to a host of hungry animals from meerkats, primates and birds. One of those cockroaches has your ex’s name. El Paso Zoo ensures concerned guests that the procedures are ethical and follow a behavioural enrichment program.

The diet of animals is regularly enriched with insects to keep them stimulated mentally and physically. Madagascar hissing cockroaches are frozen in an ethical process before they are given to insectivores determined by the zoo veterinarian’s staff.

To join the anti-Valentine promotion, people can submit the name of their ex online. You will be surprised by the number of names that have already been submitted. There are people who are asking whether they can submit more than one name. However, the zoo has warned that the event will be lives streamed in a social media page and names can be read at random.

This type of anti-Valentine event is becoming an international trend. In England, a zoo started a similar event in 2019 and will be doing it again this year. Bronx Zoo that started the trend in 2011 allowed people to name insects after their un-special someone.

If you are having problems with cockroaches, rodents, flies and other pests, your local exterminator service will deal with it quickly and efficiently. It is important to protect your home and family against health hazards. Have your home inspected as soon as you see signs of pest presence.

Japanese Orthodontist Working To Deal With Crooked Teeth

Published by:

There’s a lot of people in Japan that would make for good candidate for braces, but they don’t actually get braces.

Orthodontist Yuki Miyajima thinks this is a problem, a sign of his countrymen’s tolerance for dental issues, particularly crooked teeth.

There’s some hope though, as Miyajima, aged 39, reports that the number of Japanese getting dental care and getting their teeth straightened out, which he notes can also help improve their overall well-being and their English pronunciation.

The orthodontist, who considers himself a freelancer, wrote ‘Polish’ your teeth rather than your English to become cosmopolitan! Dental care for being active globally., a Japanese-book aimed at educating people. It’s part of what he considers his life’s work; getting more Japanese adults and kids to get their teeth straightened out with orthodontic treatment.

Miyajima, the child of two dentists, says that he wants his countrymen to proudly display big, bright confident smiles instead of awkwardly covering their mouths or putting up bashful grins. He explains that, in general, the Japanese don’t really like showing their teeth to others, but that’s more a cultural issue than a dental one.

He noted, however, that his patients who underwent dental care, straightening, and committed to being candidate for braces, were more willing to laugh and show their smiles to others. Miyajima says that the people who’ve had their teeth straightened became just that more personable.

Miyajima’s father was a visiting professor teaching orthodontics at the Saint Louis University in the US, where he saw a lot of people with bright smiles. Funnily enough, he says that his parents wanted him to be a doctor, not a dentist, but having their dental clinic so close to his home, letting him see people’s bright smiles as they left, meant that he decided on his career path early on in life.

In his book, Miyajima noted the data from a 2012 survey conducted by the US affiliate of a Japanese 3D orthodontic scanner company, which had around 2/3rds of the respondents saying that they had bad impressions of Japanese teeth.

The historical context, Miyajima’s book notes, is the custom of ohaguro (teeth blackening), which was seen as a status symbol in the aristocratic circles until the tail-end of the Meiji Period, around the early 1900s. From this, he says, started a cultural history that led to a a lot of Japanese not really caring about how good their teeth are or what people thought of their teeth, which is one of the big factors as to why they haven’t gone to through the effort needed to fix their teeth, at least until recently.

Why Celebrities Undergo Cosmetic Surgery In Spite Of Their Good Looks

Published by:

Many movie stars have undergone cosmetic surgery like nose jobs or hair transplant surgery because they are concerned with their appearance. After all, movie stars work in a highly competitive industry where looks count a lot. When an actor or actress ages, it becomes more challenging to get good roles.

Most female celebrities have complained about the difficulties of getting a good role whether in a television series or films once they reach a certain age. Female celebrities who have had nose jobs done include Renee Zellweger and Lisa Kudrow. Others have undergone other types of cosmetic surgery like cheekbone implants, Botox injections in the face and breast augmentation surgery.

Many women who have had work done on their faces or bodies prefer to keep the cosmetic procedure private. However, the investment is definitely worth it because of the increase in confidence and the good roles they are offered.

If many female celebrities have issues about their appearance, male celebrities are concerned with hair loss. Male pattern baldness that is caused by androgenic alopecia is very common among popular male celebrities. Jude Law, Brendan Fraser and John Travolta have been exhibiting signs of male pattern baldness.

On the other hand, there are male celebrities who are unconcerned with hair loss. They simply shave all their hair off like Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson. The lack of hair has actually benefited these actors. They are perfect examples of tough guys. Meanwhile, hair transplant surgery is a good solution to gain a full head of hair to make a man look younger and more virile.

Celebrities have the money to go the best cosmetic surgeons but it is not easy for most people to experience the cosmetic procedure. Medical tourism is the option for people who want to improve their looks but cannot afford the cost of treatment in their own country.

You do not have to be a movie star to undergo cosmetic surgery to improve your looks. There are new techniques and technologies that make cosmetic surgery safe and reliable. Affordable treatment options are also offered all over the world if you want to keep the cosmetic work a secret.

Solving Aesthetic Issues Of Titanium Dental Implants

Published by:

The procedure for dental implants in Reading typically starts at the dentist’s office. The patient makes an appointment with a dentist and after explaining different alternatives to replace missing teeth, dental implant is the chosen solution. Several options are available but patients are more likely to choose dental implants because they look and function like natural teeth.

Titanium is the most common material used for both medical and dental implants because it is a highly biocompatible material that can seamlessly integrate with the jaw bone.  On top of the titanium implant, a connector is placed to support the actual dental crown. According to Ole Zoffman Andersen, Research Manager of Elos Medtech that manufactures dental implant components, the connector remains an aesthetic challenge because of the metallic shine through the gums.

Researchers have developed a social solution to deliver white titanium implants so that the metal part of the implant will not shine through the gums. Roughly ten million people across the world have titanium implants and the number is still growing as the world’s population continue to grow. Many people with dental implants dislike the metal shine of the dental appliance.

During a laboratory study, DTU research group were able to whiten the surface of titanium. However, they have to develop a surface that is robust and durable so that whitening will not peel off. They also need to comply with different medical requirements.

Morten Jellesen, Senior Researcher at DTU Mechanical Engineering said that they are not sure whether the strongest whitened titanium surface was created through one or the other process or a combination of both. Their project is designed to determine which process works that will achieve excellent results.

The goal of the project is rather ambitious but once they develop the technology to whiten titanium dental implant while complying with regulatory requirements, the aesthetic issue of titanium implants will be solved.

The beautiful smiles of patients who have lost one or more teeth can be restored by dental implants in Reading using the latest in dental technology. Although the process for dental implants is longer than other dental options, it is definitely worth the wait.
