Recently, the former WWE Divas Champion Nikki Bella, twin sister Nicole Bella, their partner Alicia Fox, WWE star Dolph Ziggler and WWE Executive Stephanie McMahon visited St. Jude Children’s Research Center in Memphis, Tennessee to support Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. The WWE stars spent quality time signing autographs, taking pictures and putting a smile on the faces of St. Jude patients.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other deadly diseases. St. Jude has the world’s best survival rates for the most aggressive childhood cancers, and treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent since we opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent in the next decade. St. Jude freely shares the breakthroughs we make, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing and food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. Join the St. Jude mission by visiting stjude.org or following St. Jude on facebook.com/stjude and twitter.com/stjude.

It’s that time of year, pumpkin is officially back! Finally fall is upon us and it’s everything pumpkin season! Why not celebrate with a DIY pumpkin foot scrub from celebrity nail artist and owner of As U Wish Nail Salon, Skyy Hadley.
“Pumpkins are more than just for carving on Halloween,” she noted. “They’re rich in vitamins and nutrients and can do wonders for your feet!” They contain “various enzymes that help nourish and brighten the skin, and just by adding raw sugar you have a perfect foot scrub,” she said.
PUMPKIN FOOT SCRUB
Mix pureed pumpkin in a bowl. Stir in a yogurt, honey, sugar and olive oil. Wash your feet in warm water, and while your feet are moist, apply the scrub using your hands in a circular motion. Massage the mask onto your feet for 10 minutes on each foot and remove with warm water and a washcloth.

What if the secret to a more youthful glow can be found in your refrigerator? Dermatologist Dr. Whitney Bowe recommends an avocado face mask because avocados are full of antioxidants and fatty acids known to reduce wrinkles, while the oils help hydrate dry and flaky skin.
If you want a more youthful glow you only need two ingredients – avocado and honey!
DIY avocado face mask:
1. Combine ½ avocado and 2 tsp honey, and mash until the consistency is like a paste
2. Spread a light coat over your face and neck
3. Leave for 10 minutes and then wash off using warm water

Everything changes. Just look at your home town now and thirty years ago. It might seem as a short period, but in this time many changes have occurred. Some of the cities in the world were built from scratch during this time. Like everything else, many sciences have evolved in the last fifty years. Since the Industrial Revolution, people are trying to employ and exploit the machines to best of their ability. Similarly to this, the development of computers and the Internet, as well as the introduction of many medical devices, brought about many improvements in medicine.
Today, all of these elements are a necessity in any hospital, clinic or pharmacy store. Furthermore, they became so intertwined and it is hard to exclude one of these elements without excluding the rest.
As previously said, most of the medical procedures are being performed with the use of computers and different medical devices. So, why do we need the Internet then? Internet was created as enormous space meant to store different kinds of files and information. In big hospitals, with many different departments, it is necessary to enter the data through the Internet so that all the users can see them. For example, if you finished your shift, you need to leave all the information to your colleague from the other shift. Imagine if you started performing an operation just to realize that you are out of supplies. This system allows you to keep track of your stocks, of what is available, and what you need to order.
It is a good thing that these changes impacted drugstore as well. Nowadays, online Canadian pharmacies such as the popular https://www.youdrugstore.com/do most of its business through the Internet. Similarly to hospitals, they have all the data regarding their available stock. Whenever someone orders through Internet, these online drugstores are able to send the required medication using a vast network to final consumer. This is an enormous breakthrough because sick patients can’t allow themselves to travel much.
Like the medication, existing medical machines are also heavily influenced by the internet. All the machines that were ever made had only one purpose. To serve the people that built it. And when we say serve, we mean serve to its full capacity. When it comes to medical equipment, this is very important to have in mind. Unlike the machines that are used for production, when a medical machine brakes down, people die. This is why the Internet is so important for these machines. We get many notifications through it. All the machines are used up during their work. Internet gives us a heads up when we should change a malfunctioning part. If there are more hospitals within network (for example, public hospitals) we can send patient from one point to the other. This enables us to relocate patients and equally use all the equipment at our disposal.
Internet made such a difference for us. It allowed us to enter a world with many possibilities. It is good that medicine started using it the right way, saving lives in the process.

Ellen recently started a campaign asking people to dance to raise awareness for pediatric cancer by using the hanshtag #JustKeepDancing. Ellen started this campaign after a 6 year old with brain cancer (Braylon Beam) was on her show, and told her that he got through his chemo therapy and tough days by dancing.
WWE and Daniel Bryan are strong supporters of pediatric cancer. In order to support the cause, WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan shared his #JustKeepDancing video and challenged others to do the same.
The WWE Universe can also get involved by posting their own video with the #JustKeepDancing hashtag, as well as going gold for the month of September. During this month, WWE will donated $1.00 (up to a total of $75,000.00) to the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation to benefit Connor’s Cure for every twitter profile that goes gold.
You can change your profile like I have, by visiting the Go Gold website.
You can also show your support by purchasing a Connor’s Cure bracelet, I did so at the last WWE Live event we were at. If you can’t purchase one at the show, you can order your’s online. 100% of the net proceeds that WWE makes from these bracelets will go to the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation to benefit Connor’s Cure.
