  1. Earrings

    An earring is a piece of jewellery attached to the ear via a piercing in the earlobe or another external part of the ear. Earrings are worn by both sexes, although more common among women, and have been used by different civilizations in different times. Common locations for piercings, other than the earlobe, include the rook, tragus, and across the helix. The simple term "ear piercing" usually refers to an earlobe piercing, whereas piercings in the upper part of the external ear are often referred to as "cartilage piercings". Cartilage piercings are more complex to perform than earlobe piercings and take longer to heal. Earring components may be made of any number of materials, including metal, plastic, glass, precious stone, beads, wood, bone, and other materials. Designs range from small loops and studs to large plates and dangling items. The size is ultimately limited by the physical capacity of the earlobe to hold the earring without tearing. However, heavy earrings worn over extended periods of time may lead to stretching of the earlobe and the piercing.

    APPLE WATCH CATCHES GRANDMOTHERS HEART CONDITION, POSSIBLY SAVING HER LIFE The couple went missing in a snowstorm after spending a weekend with friends on November 3. Rescuers located Marsh in time after her husband sent friends photographs of their location. She was flown by air ambulance to the ValldHebron Hospital in Barcelona, where she was connected to an extracorporeal membrane oxygenation machine. The machine stands in for the heart and lungs, pumping blood through the arteries and heating it, which raises the body temperature.Doctors believed she could survive if they treated the hypothermia. This is an exceptional case on a global scale, Eduard Argudo, a doctor from the Vall dHebron hospital told a press conference.There are practically no cases of people being revived after their heart has stopped for so long. CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR OUT LIFESTYLE NEWSLETTER When she arrived at the hospital, Mashsheart was showing no electrical activity and her kidneys and lungs were not functioning, doctors said. Eduard Argudo said the sharp fall in her body temperature may have saved her as the cold preserved her organs. Six hours after entering cardio-respiratory arrest, Marshs heart began to beat naturally again. Marsh, who spent 11 days in hospital recovering, has not suffered any long-term brain damage but has trouble moving her hands which were affected by the cold. When I went home I had damage to my hands. I could not do up my buttons on trousers or put in my earrings. These are small things which are going to get better, she said. Rohan Schoeman, Rohan Schoeman, 36, who is South African and works as a teacher, said the couple had spent the weekend with friends but left early morning without them. At one point the snowfall became very heavy. We found a rock and tried to use it for shelter to avoid adverse weather conditions. Once visibility improved, I could see that our friends had tried to contact us, audrey was losing consciousness so I tried to send some photos to our friends of where we were.
