I’m sure most of you have heard that the stars of Hollywood receive ‘gift bags’ when they attend the Oscars or the other glamour outings. The gifts contained within are quite nice and very lavish to most standards. What I am also sure of is that most of you have not heard that in a small town named Bisbee, Arizona the local school board has also decided and voted to give ‘gift bags’ not to local celebrities but rather to this year’s high school Prom attendees. What a nice idea and a truly gracious offering to help teenaged students feel a bit more special and important if just for the one night. I think every parent with high school aged children ought to contact the local Bisbee school board Superintendent Paul McDonald and tell him just how nice this gift bag idea really is.
Unfortunately I must be the one to say, ‘hold the phone’! Wait until I first give you just one more small tidbit about these high school ‘prom gift bags’. So before you forward your kudos to the Superintendent hear me out. The local Bisbee, Arizona school board voted this week to include condoms in the “prom gift bags” it plans to give away to teenagers at this year’s annual prom dance. By a 4-1 majority the local school board decided it would be a good idea and would give their official blessing. All but one member, Millicent Kasun voted to go ahead and include pictures frames, candles, mints, and two (not one but two) condoms in this year’s ‘prom gift bags’. What a wonderful display of tax dollars at work-Don’t you agree?
Problem number one, I have with the giving of condoms to teenaged children with their ‘prom gift bag’. I thought for a moment that the local school board must have had evidence that condoms work most if not all of the time or they wouldn’t have suggest such an idea to 16-, 17-, and 18-year-old students would they have? I guess not, and so we must go according to all the polls and studies available to the public. One in five teen couples who use a condom will become pregnant, and the others are at risk of contracting anything from HPV to HIV. This hardly can be a ‘cure all’ for today’s teenage problems. Could the misrepresenting of information force the school board to be responsible for any of the results that stemmed from this special night; both financial and ethically?
Problem number two, what about leaving these highly sensitive issues for parents to handle as deemed by God Almighty. Isn’t the school board usurping His authority and that of the parents, by making the decision and setting off on a plan of action, i.e. the ‘prom gift bags’? Regardless of the personal beliefs, religious and/or moral holdings of any of the parents, the school board’s wishes and wants out-weight everyone else.
Problem number three, I feel that IF the school board is going to usurp such amounts of authority and responsibility they need to go one step further to make their ‘prom gift bags’ a more ‘complete package’. If they hurry just a bit they can include the following in this year’s bags. This year’s ‘prom gift bags’ need a thirty percent 30% off coupon for the students next visit to Plan Parenthood! While we are on the subject, indirectly, it just makes logical sense to me to include such an offering. Just in-case our local school board is reading this, I am only kidding, I’m being sarcastic, okay? I don’t want to send any ‘mixed messages’ to any group that usurps such amounts of power from every parent and even God Himself! The results could be very nasty.
If you are a parent, if you are a Christian, if you are a morally upright individual, you must make your opinion known now. Unfortunately for you, you can’t hide claiming you don’t have all the details. You now have the facts, make a decision and express either your approval or your disapproval. Is it okay to inform our children that the teachings we the parents and our children’s church teach, aren’t as important as that of the local school board. Is it okay for the local school board to over-look publicly held facts and statistics and to promote an evening of sexual indulgence without any responsibility? Don’t allow anyone, especially the local school board to tell you that giving these items ‘doesn’t promote or give permission to such activities’. Just as any responsible and level-headed parent wouldn’t give their student a concealed handgun to carry on their person, for the night of the prom with the words, don’t use it, but keep it close so that you will be safe. We all learned a long time ago that we can’t give a child something and then tell them to not use it. It doesn’t work and it leads to trouble every single time. Two, most adults would agree that a student with a concealed handgun in just about any setting is trouble just waiting to happen, and not any of the ‘safety’ that was intended; so too with condom issue. The religious beliefs held sacred by most families as well as their parental authority and responsibility is offended and made mockery of when anyone usurps ultimate authority and continues dishing out wrong information that can and will lead to a lifetime of dealing with the results, one kind or the other.
Okay, now is the time to place that call or to write that e-mail to the Superintendent, Paul McDonald of the Bisbee, Arizona school board at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (520) 432-5381 (ext. 4204). Make your opinion known and heard! Why? Because if it could happen in a small town like Bisbee, it’s just a matter of time before it comes to your town. Therefore, this is also a prefect time to sit down and talk with your children about this and get an idea of what they would do when put into the same situation. I know I have said this many times before, but… This seriously is just one more example supporting my belief that Christian families are under attack not only by Satan and all the evil things that exist today; but also by those ‘authorities’ that are suppose to work with us parents to raise healthy, happy well-adjusted and educated Christian/Moral children. Is it any wonder why more and more Christian families are choosing to home school their children instead of subjecting them to this garbage over and over again? I hope all this, will help you to be a bit more understanding the next time you bump into a Christian home schooled family or a Bisbee, Arizona family for that much.
Anal Cancer Treatment
Anal Cancer Risk Factors
Symptoms of Anal Cancer
Possible signs of anal cancer include bleeding from the anus or rectum or a lump near the anus.
How is anal cancer diagnosed ?
The following tests and procedures may be used for anal cancer :
Physical exam and history : An exam of the body to check general signs of health, including checking for signs of disease, such as lumps or anything else that seems unusual. A history of the patient’s health habits and past illnesses and treatments will also be taken.
Digital rectal examination (DRE) : An exam of the anus and rectum. The doctor or nurse inserts a lubricated, gloved finger into the lower part of the rectum to feel for lumps or anything else that seems unusual.
Anoscopy : An exam of the anus and lower rectum using a short, lighted tube called an anoscope.
Proctoscopy : An exam of the rectum using a short, lighted tube called a proctoscope.
Endo-anal or endorectal ultrasound : A procedure in which an ultrasound transducer (probe) is inserted into the anus or rectum and used to bounce high-energy sound waves (ultrasound) off internal tissues or organs and make echoes. The echoes form a picture of body tissues called a sonogram.
Biopsy : The removal of cells or tissues so they can be viewed under a microscope by a pathologist to check for signs of cancer. If an abnormal area is seen during the anoscopy, a biopsy may be done at that time.
Treatment of anal cancer
The 3 main methods of treatment for anal cancer are surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. Often the best approach combines 2 or more of these strategies. In the past, surgery was the only treatment for anal cancer, but doctors have found that most anal cancers can be successfully treated with radiation and chemotherapy combined and without the need for surgery. This treatment approach, called chemo radiotherapy, is now the most widely used approach for anal cancer.
Surgery for Anal Cancer
Surgery may be done if the anal cancer is detected at an early stage, but this is not the preferred mode of therapy. Currently surgery for anal cancer is indicated only in those patients who have failed to combination of chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
Radiation therapy alone for Anal Cancer
This mode of treatment was used in Europe for early anal cancer lesions, but is associated with higher complication rates compared to combination of chemotherapy and radiation therapy, which is the preferred treatment in anal cancer.
Combined chemo-radiation for Anal Cancer
This is the preferred mode of treatment for most patients with anal cancer. About 80 to 90 percent of patients usually experience complete remission (complete disappearance of tumor) with this mode of treatment and most of these patients are cured of anal cancer.

It seems that an increasing measure of teenagers are performing unprotected sex and discovering too late about all of the results that this can have on them. Not only do they run the risk of having an unplanned pregnancy – but they also run an even bigger risk of suffering from one of the different STDâ??s.This is a sexually transmitted disease that has the ability to be give to individuals through any form of sexual intercourse. Several of these types of diseases can be contracted and will not show any form of symptoms for some years. This makes it difficult to know whether you have a problem without actually having a test performed. This also means that you might have passed it to lots of other individuals.Some of the more common of these disease are the HPV infection, Genital Warts, syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia. Each of these are able to create rashes, blisters, and may be rather awkward and painful. The toughest of these is the HPV infection – which can lower your immune system and if not addressed will evolve into AIDS.It is crucial that we instruct our teenagers about the risks of having unprotected sex and recommend them not just to wait until they are much older – but also to utilize the proper protection.
The only way you have the power to truly protect yourself is with abstinence. This is when both parties decide not to wait to have sex. They must first take tests to learn if they are positive for anything. One of the easiest methods you can utilize to warn your teenager is to show them certain things like pictures of Genital Warts and syphilis so that they understand what it is able to do to them.
The duct tape is the home remedy for warts. You can cover the place which is affected by a duct tape for about six days. If he tape does come off by the end of these six days, then a new tape has to be replaced. At the end of the sixth day remove the duct tape and let the wart soak in water. Now use a pumice stone to scrape off the top layer of skin. Once this is done follow the same thing until the wart disappears. This however should be done at a gap of twenty four hours. Some kids refuse to use duct tapes. Use colorful ones to make them use it. Make use of home wart removing kits that are available in the stores.
There is no permanent cure for either Genital Warts or the HPV virus. Doctors do provide several symptomatic treatments that successfully remove Genital Warts. However, there is no guarantee that they will not recur. And as it so happens, once a patient has suffered from Genital Warts, despite treatment, they do recur from time to time.Genital warts must be treated by a doctor. Carbon dioxide laser treatment is used for extensive or recurrent genital warts. Podophyllin and podofilox should not be used during pregnancy, as they are absorbed by the skin and may cause birth defects in the fetus. 5-fluorouracil cream should not be used while trying to become pregnant or if there is a possibility of pregnancy. Antiviral drug interferon-alpha directly into the warts, to treat warts that have returned after removal by traditional means. Surgical treatments include cryosurgery, electrocauterization, laser therapy, or cutting them out. Cryosurgery is technique freezes the wart using liquid nitrogen or a “cryoprobe.” Electrodesiccation technique uses an electric current to destroy the warts. It can be done in the office with local anesthesia. The resulting smoke plume may be infectious. Imiquimod (Aldara) cream appears to boost your immune system’s ability to fight genital warts. Avoid contact while the cream is on your skin. It may weaken condoms and diaphragms and may irritate your partner’s skin. Condoms offer some protection against genital warts, but they can’t completely prevent them because the warts can be outside of the area protected by the condom. Spermicidal foams, creams, and jellies have not been proven to protect against HPV and genital warts. Avoid STDs by having a monogamous relationship with a partner known to be disease-free.The genital warts cream elite which is most ofttimes formal is aldara. This take is prefabricated up of an medicine which boosts the body’s immune performance and helps advertize the virus. Added genital warts take which can be utilised is condylox. The ingredients ion this cream undo the genital wart paper. This elite is really potent and reduces the appraise of repeat to a banging extent.You staleness be provident if you are meaningful. Most genital warts creams cannot be utilised if you are meaningful. They are not meant for inner exercise either. In many cases your doctor might advise tricholoroacetic superman direction. This involves the employment of the resolvent on the warts to blemish them off.Genital warts are viral infections, which may persist for a long time in tissues in the genital area of both men and women. Medication is the prescribed treatment for the condition however, there is no cure. The virus remains in the infected area and can recur at any time. That is why it is very important to check up with your doctor anytime you switch partners; that way you will not accidentally infect another person if you do indeed have any STD’s like genital warts.Find out more about Aldara medication:5 aldara creamaldara wartsaldarealdara cream onlinealdara picturesaldara pregnancy
