Before you say “Hello No” the active ingredient in these product is micronazole nitrate , an anti fugal agent. Well the chemical structure in these creams is similar to that of Ketoconazole which has been known to block a hair killing hormone that’s responsible for most hair loss in men as well as women.
I’m posting it now because a friend of mine has been using it to regrow her edges and in less than 2 weeks, her edges grow back fuller than before. She said that she mixes it with her regular moisturizer as well as coconut oil.

she said that she got headaches when she used it by itself, but they went away when she diluted it and used it while wearing braids, she saw a sprout in growth when she took the braids out.

So don’t use it alone if you do decide to try it. There also youtube video testimonies about theses creams. Please do check them out before you try. Be very careful & try at your own risk.

Thrush Treatments

I always used a purple liquid  "Thrush Buster"  a little pricey where I was and it stains EVERYTHING.  For powders, there is “No Thrush” which should claims to promote HEEL growth.

There are a lot of other remedies though, it’s tricky because everyone has there own opinion.  Any athlete’s foot creme or antibiotic creme seems to work.  

Chlorine dioxide is effective on bacteria, fungi, and such while not hurting healthy tissue.

Gold Bond foot powder packed in with clean cloths or a boot will keep moisture out.

Have a tube of desitin (dries the hoof), triple antibiotic ointment (for infection), an athletes foot cream (to fight thrush), and a tube of monostat (to fight yeast), mix well together and put in an empty syringe and insert into all parts of the hoof. NO needles and no internal injections, just forcing it into cracks and tight spots. Dry Cow mastitis treatment(Keratex Hoof Gel, allows air but stops moisture) and then pouring Wonder Dust into the grooves on top of it and packing it in. A big thing to focus on though is to clean out her hooves everyday to allow air in and get to mud and crap out, which I understand may be hard if you board your horse.  I went through the same thing with Atticus, I boarded him at the same stable I had my lessons and bought him from, they hardly cleaned the stalls and never cleaned the fields.

I'm in a dilemma! I've had a yeast infection that isn't going away despite treatment probably thanks to pregnancy hormones, and I know baths aren't good to have with an infection. However epsom salt baths are the only thing that really takes care of my pregnancy pains! I had one recently and felt SO much relief but the next morning I woke up feeling worse from the infection. I don't know what to do!

Are yourself treating the yeast infection or is your doctor treating it? Try increasing you in take of things like yogurt. They have natural antibodies that can help get rid of yeast. If your self treating call your ob about the infection normally they can prescribe medications like nystatin that are much stronger then what is in monostat and it will get rid of the yeast infection.


Extra Credit ISAT Senior Symposium Kyle Epping

1.) The first talk that I went to was presented by Seraphim Daniel Falterman.  His senior project dealt with energy, agriculture, and environment for a Monostatic community in Wayne, West Virginia.  He analyzed the electrical delivery system and develop a plan to reduce the overall electrical costs of the community.  I really thought it was interesting how there is only 3 points of electrical use throughout the compound.  I also thought it was really cool how he used infrared imaging to show areas where old insulation needs to be improve.  

2.)  The second talk that I went to was about installation of Photovoltaic Lighting System and Energy Monitors at Punta Leona Hotel and Club. It was presented by Anders Hasselquisst who concentrated in Applied Biotech, Energy, and Environment.  The Punta Leona Hotel and Club looks for ways to become more earth friendly and educates the local area about sustainability.  JMU currently has a partnership with the resort which consist of about 300 acres.  He also talked about the installation of a 120V photovoltaic system and a TED breaker system.  Anders said that the coolest thing was the IT people down in Costa Rica connected his home computer to the system down in Costa Rica which made it easy and convenient for him to record data.  

3.) The next presentation I went to was called, “Assessment of Biomass Thermal Water Heating System at New Community Project in Harrisonburg, VA.  Before this presentation I have really never thought about Biomass and how it could be used to heat up water.  Basically they had a compost pile consisting of wood chips and manure and then laid piping down so that the compost would heat up the water. I really thought that it need better plan of action because it seem like they neglected it over the year. Overall, I enjoyed the concept of biomass and everything it has to offer.  


The next presentation I went to was called, “The National Farm to School Network and James Madison University:  The Potential for a Large-Scale Local Food Purchasing Initiative”. The speaker as Allyson Ponn who concentrated in Environment and Food and Agriculture Systems.  Overall I enjoyed her presentation I thought it was really relevant to the JMU campus.  However I thought it was really basic for a senior project.  I don’t really remember seeing any personal data it was more data that she received from outside sources.  


The next presentation that I went to was called “East Campus Meadow Soil Health Survey” which was presented by Susan Anderson.  I really enjoyed this project because I see the meadow outside of ISAT every day.  I really thought she really addressed the issues surrounding the meadow.  According to her results, the meadow’s Ph. levels are very variable and need to be address in future projects. During the talk, I learned that it is quite hard to run nitrate tests in general because of the constantly changing conditions.  


I really thought this presentation was the coolest of the day because I really never heard or seen an Aquaponics system.  The speakers were really informed on the topic and seem like they were very passionate about their project.  I also thought it was cool how they gave a brief biography of the new community project which is partnered with JMU.  The best part of the presentation was the pictures of the construction process and the step by step explaining of the construction.  


The next presentation I went to was titled “Use of Bio Char as a Soil Amendment.”  It was presented by Josh Kugler and Kevin Mulcahy. Overall, I thought it was an interesting topic but it was not well thought out.  They gave a really good background on Bio Char and how it could be used in soil processes.  However, they really didn’t even conclude anything from their project and they didn’t even give any reason why the project failed, except Dr. Teel’s cats.  


The last presentation was titled “Variation in the Design of a Top-Lit UpDraft Stove for Biochar”.  It was presented by Brandon White who concentrated in Engineering and Manufacturing.  Overall I thought his content was very good.  I learned how his different designs used Biochar and what happens during the process of cooking the meal.  I also thought it was cool how he brought some of the stoves to the presentation to give a visual aid.  

 Overall, I am really looking forward to giving my senior project.  I really want to focus more on a global scale instead of small scale like a lot of the presentations.  I just thought some of the presentations were really no well thought out and more effort was needed.  I also learned what not to do during a presentation.   


How do turtles turn right side up when they are flipped on their backs?

Answer by Logan Forbes:

It all depends on the shape and condition of their shell. 

Flat shelled freshwater turtles right themselves using a technique reminiscent of classic breakdancing moves, circa 1980. 

They extend their neck and pivot on their head while pushing off with their leg on whichever side is tilting downward.

Different turtles have varying stable positions. Flat shelled turtles are nearly as stable upside down as they are on their feet.   This means it can be a laborious task to turn themselves over and can take some time depending on the surface under them.

Dome shelled tortoises or terrestrial turtles are referred to as monostatic, meaning they’re stable in only one position and fortunately, it’s right side up.   Terrestrial turtles are naturally inclined to roll onto one side if they end up on their back, so less effort is needed to flip themselves over.

There are a few exceptions because of certain deviations to their shells that make them more likely to become stuck upside down, leaving them vulnerable to all sorts of hazards.
