Miss Ryland Says Nose Surgery Drastic, But No Regrets

 

Miss Ryland of Whales was 21 years old when she finally decided to have nose surgery. Since 12 years of age, the profile of Miss Ryland’s nose had bothered her. Yet, it was a facebook comment from a friend that prompted her to have nose surgery at 21 years of age. The friend’s comment, “With a nose that big you should wear a mask to cover it up.”, sent Miss Ryland into the plastic surgeon’s office for nose surgery two weeks later.

Soon after, Miss Ryland entered the Miss Caerphilly pageant in Whales and was the second runner up. In the end, Miss Ryland felt that nose surgery was dramatic, but seems to feel great about the results of the procedures. Miss Ryland is not unlike many other nose surgery patients. It is not vanity that drives people into plastic surgeons’ offices for nose surgery. Often times, it is ridicule that has been endured since childhood. For this reason, it has become more common for people to undergo nose surgery when their nose is full grown, at a young age. Though, people of all adult ages undergo rhinoplasty.

In fact, today there are less invasive options for nose surgery to attract patients. Plastic surgeons may use a “scarless rhinoplasty” approach involving facial fillers to reshape the nose. There is also the closed rhinoplasty approach that focuses on performing the procedure through incisions that are made inside the nose. Open rhinoplasty is still an option when necessary. Some may feel that the open approach is intimidating because discreet incisions may be made on the nose such as below or on the sides of the nose. However, even the open approach is more advanced with smaller instruments that provide less invasiveness. People who feel that their confidence is lacking because of ridicule usually do not ultimately mind any approach to nose surgery. Indeed, nose surgery can be gratifying in many ways.

Having Liposuction? Consider Arnica Montana

ACTUAL sbobet Brad-o-ween Schedule

 

Much has been written about the great annual sbobet G-Vegas festival. Few people understand the madness. As a 5 year veteran, I have certain perspective to offer. In fact, I’ve planned every aspect of this INCREDIBLE EVENT down to the minute. For now, I’ll just brace you for Bradoween Eve…

It goes like this :

FRIDAY AUGUST 19TH

11 AM

Mr. & Mrs. Can’t Hang arrive at GSP International. At this point both visitors will make their way from the gate to baggage claim. They’ll be the first bloggers to discover the amazing ease of South Carolina travel.

Which carosel? That one!

Which?

Just eliminate all the empty space that does not contain a carosel, and that small area you find will have your bags front and center.

NOON

Otis, BadBlood, The Hangs, and I make our way to a favorite wing and beer joint. We used to frequent this place on “Working Women’s Wednesday”. Actually, I have no idea why that is. It’s at this point that Al will make another important SC discovery.

All liquor served in bars or restaurants here comes in a mini-bottle. It’s the stuff you find in hotel minibars or on the airplane service cart. Shots here are 1.75oz, which means those “double shots” of Southern Comfort will pack quite a punch.

2PM

Pauly and Derek join the party.

2:15PM

Pauly says to BadBlood, “My God, you’ve started already!”

BadBlood is forced to sit down to conteract the swirling floor.

Otis looks for a chair, and misses.

3:00PM

Eva Can’t Hang is relieved by the arrival of another female blogger…midget housewife “Iggy” and his great uncle “Daddy”. Iggy and Daddy are DRIVING to G-Vegas so you’d assume they’d be quite tired already. You’d be wrong. Both bloggers are SO excited to see the old blogger crew, they unveil the secret donkey they’ve smuggled in the trunk.

Daddy, as always, holds a clinic.

3:30PM

Over a string of Guiness/Car Bombs/Southern Comfort/Fruity Umbrella Crap(BadBlood) the group debates the value of a quick pre-tournament poker game. The discussion lasts over 3 hours.

4:00PM

Otis falls

7:00PM…

QLHTing with slot hoki BadBlood

 

There were only two ways you would know I was sitting in a mexican eatery. First, there was a basket of corn chips and salsa sitting next to my monster beer. Second, two slot hoki guys sat behind the bar intently watching Univision on the big screen TV. With those two exceptions, the basement restaurant looked almost exactly like it did when it was an Italian spot a few years ago.

Olympic Boxing had been on TV when I came in. I found myself thinking that any sport broadcast in Spanish sounds like soccer if you’re not watching the screen.

G-Rob was there waiting when I walked in. He’d already downed half his beer before I walked in six minutes late. We figured a big beer from The Cactus would do us well before we venutred across the street to what I’d started thinking of as The Quilt (QLHT–Questionably Legal Hotel Tourney) hosted by fellow poker blogger, BadBlood.

I’d been out of live poker commission for the two weeks since my kid had been born. I’d missed out on four games at The Mark (formerly known as The State Park game), a Greenwood tourney, and a trip to Tunica. I was stoked, rowdy, and a little nervous.

And I had to pee.

In the bathroom, one urinal had been ripped off the wall and there weren’t any paper towels in the dispenser. The restaurant had certainly seen better days. Me? I’m trying to work up my confidence, holding my whang and going over hypothetical hands in my head.

When I came back to the bar, G-Rob was interested in the TV. Moreover, he was interested in the tanned, buxon women gyrating in bikinis.

“This is a good show,” he said. We’d been talking about novelist Christopher Moore. G-Rob’s remark reminded me of something Biff, or better yet, Coyote, would say.

One of the Hispanic guys said, “Caliente.”

I don’t know hy I felt the need to translate, but I looked at G-Rob and said, “Hot.”

He raised his eyebrows as if to say, “Indeed,” and went back to watching. …

Struggling with your mirror image

As we age, the skin droops and develops wrinkles, lines and furrows. Depending on your skin type, you may find your skin to be pre-disposed to wrinkling. But thanks to diligent research and new advances, there are a number of solutions to combat facial lines.

CAUSES OF FACIAL LINES

In addition to aging, facial lines can form because of the following:

 

Sun damage (Fine lines and wrinkles arise because of irregular thickening of the dermis and because of a decrease in the amount of water held by the epidermis. caused mainly by sun damage.) (Read more at Sun Damaged Skin)

Smoking

Muscle movement / Dynamic lines (People tend to smile or frown more on one side than the other, or consistently sleep on the right or the left cheek. Crow’s feet around the eyes are due to smiling and activity of the eyelid muscles. Worry lines on the forehead are due to contraction of the muscle when raising the eyebrows)

Gravity is responsible for folds in the skin.

WHAT TREATMENT IS AVAILABLE?

See your dermatologist for information about what might work well for you, which could include (Also see treatments for sundamaged skin):

 

Topical agents which produce collagen in the skin, Vitamin A acids (Tazarotene, Tretinoin, Adapelene) and Vitamin C or alpha Hydroxy acids

Microdermabrasion has a very modest benefit for very fine lines

Injectionable fillers such as Restylane (Hyaluronic acid)

Botox for dynamic lines (Check-out www.BotoxFacts.ca)

Lasers. Traditionally the CO2 and Erbium lasers (ablative) were used to essentially peel off a layer of skin and then allow a new skin to grow in. Results were impressive but the healing time of many weeks and sometimes months of redness has reduced the use of this approach. Patients with darker skin would often end up with darker skin and those with very fair skin sometimes white skin

Plastic surgery is usually used to improve skin folds rather than fine lines and wrinkles

The newer non-ablative laser treatments do not have the down time of the older methods nor do they have the degree of improvement. Repeat treatments with lasers …

Prop Bets With Tony G, Daniel Negreanu, and More

 

Prop bet, also called a side bet, prop, or exotic, is a bet made on an outcome or a proposition. These can be anything from statistics and happenstance in a regular game to personal, one-of-a-kind bets.

Poker is a thoroughly entertaining game, from the suck-outs to the sick reads to the tournament bubble boys. But you know what’s really exciting? Poker pros like Tony G and Daniel Negreanu making prop bets on any type of oddity to feed their action junkie instincts.

 

The play at the tables is clearly not enough to satisfy the impulse of these professional players, as there are hundreds of documented incidents (most hilarious) of prop bets ranging from marshmallow mouth stuffing to a prop bets championship title. Who wouldn’t want to see Tony G compete in a foot race with a professional basketball player running backwards? Or Gavin Smith stuff his face with marshmallows while Phil Laak keeps an eagle eye on the clock?

 

Below are five of some of the more remarkable prop bets made in the last couple of years:

Full Tilt Poker Renews Secondary CPA with the KGC

It was recently released that Full Tilt Poker successfully renewed their Secondary Client Provider Authorization (CPA) with the Kahnawake Gaming Commision (KGC) for a period of two years. This is despite the fact that the Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) recently suspended Full  Tilt’s primary license.

Full Tilt Poker, previously one of the best US poker sites around, was forced to close their doors to Americans on April 15th due to US indictments. They continued to offer games to those outside of the USA until June 29th when their primary license with the AGCC was taken away. This caused even players outside of the States to have their funds frozen.

 

According to the KGC’s press release, Full Tilt is required to have a valid primary license in order to keep their Secondary CPA. As such, they are watching the outcome of the site’s situation with the AGCC very closely. Currently Full Tilt’s primary license is still valid despite being suspended, …
