Penis Pain and UTI Causes, Solutions and Prevention

by

John Dugan

Urinary tract infections (UTI) are the second most common type of infection in humans. While they are more common in women, men can also develop UTI. Because a UTI can cause considerable penis pain, as well as other, more serious complications, understanding what can cause it as well as how to avoid it is important to maintaining overall penis health.

What is a UTI? A urinary tract infection is a bacterial infection occurring in any part of the urinary system, usually caused by the e. Coli bacterium. Both men and women can be affected; while they occur more frequently in women, they are generally more serious in men. The common symptoms of UTI in men include:

Penis pain and/or a burning sensation during urination;

Frequent and urgent need to urinate;

Cloudy or dark-colored urine;

A strong, unpleasant smell to the urine;

Rectal pain;

Abdominal pain and/or body aches and pains;

Fever.

Common causes of UTI in men

Some of the most common causes of urinary tract infections in male patients are as follows:

1.Poor hygiene. As mentioned above, most urinary tract infections are caused by e. Coli, which is found in human feces. Neglecting personal care practices such as regular bathing and laundering of the clothing can allow the introduction of bacteria into the urethral opening of the penis.

2.Sexual intercourse. During sex, men may come in contact with bacteria from a partners body, especially during anal penetration. Barrier protection should always be used during sex to limit exposure to the bacteria, as well as to avoid spreading other sexually transmitted diseases.

3.Diabetes. Men (and women) who have diabetes have a much greater risk of developing frequent infections, as high levels of blood glucose can irritate and damage the urethral tract.

4.Spermicides. Chemical spermicides used as birth control can cause skin irritation, which increases the risk of bacterial infections.

5.Condom use. Using a condom increases the friction during sexual intercourse, leading to irritation. However, condoms should still be used, as the potential for passing on a sexually transmitted infection is a greater concern.

6.Catheter use. Men who use bladder catheters to assist with urination (often used for men with an enlarged prostate who have difficulty emptying the bladder) run the risk of introducing bacteria into the urethral tract.

Treatment and prevention of urinary tract infections in men.

If left untreated, UTI can progress to the kidneys and cause serious complications, so men who develop symptoms should waste no time in making an appointment with a doctor. Most urinary tract infections can be resolved through use of prescription antibiotics. Men should be sure to take the full course of antibiotics, even if they feel better before using all of the prescribed medication. Otherwise, the bacteria may not be fully eliminated and the infection may return.

As far as preventing UTI, doctors recommend the following:

Drinking plenty of water at least 8 glasses per day.

Urinating immediately following sex the flow of urine may help to remove any bacteria present around the urethral opening.

Keeping the penis clean men who are uncircumcised should be especially careful about cleaning underneath the foreskin.

Avoiding caffeine and alcohol, which can irritated the bladder.

Avoiding spraying any deodorants or fragrances in the genital area.

Taking showers instead of baths.

Wearing loose-fitting, cotton underwear.

Avoiding holding urine for long periods of time.

Adding a penis health crme (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) to the personal care routine may also help reduce the risk of urinary tract infections. A quality formula should contain high-end moisturizers and emollients that soften the skin and prevent dryness and cracking, which encourage the presence of bacteria on the skin. Products that are enriched with immune-boosting vitamin C, as well as antibacterial vitamin A, may also provide an extra layer of protection, as well as leaving the penile skin supple, healthy and youthful in appearance.

Volunteers endure bed-rest study

Tuesday, March 22, 2005 Volunteers began a 60 day bed-rest marathon on March 19 to study simulated weightlessness effects on women astronauts. The study, Women International Space Simulation for Exploration(WISE), is conducted at the MEDES Space Clinic in Toulouse, France.

The 12 women, selected from 1600 applicants hailing from France,Great Britain, Germany, Finland, The Netherlands, Poland and the Czech Republic began the study after a 20 day screening for baseline comparison data as the study progressed.

The women will conduct all activities from eating, bathing, and reading while lying in hospital beds tilted headfirst at a six degree angle. This particular position, called head-down tilt bed rest was determined from previous studies to remove the vertical load of gravity on the body, inducing changes similar to what astronauts in a genuine weightless environment experience [1].

Long term exposure to weightlessness creates a number of physiological and psychological problems in astronauts such as:

  • Reduced capacity for physical exertion
  • Muscle atrophy
  • Affects of confinement and isolation
  • Impaired circulatory function

A total of 24 women will participate in the study. A second group of 12 will join in September.

Three groups of eight women each will be studied over the course of the two campaigns of bed rest. One group will serve as a control, receiving no specific treatments, the second will exercise, while the third will receive nutritional supplements.

The study is designed to fill in gaps of knowledge on the differences between men and women during extended weightlessness. It also aims to develop countermeasures for reducing the debilitating effects of long spaceflights.

Participating agencies in the study include the European Space Agency, NASA, the French Space Agency and the Canadian Space Agency.

Moonstone June’s Gemstone Of Celestial Beauty

By Sarah Stephens

Moonstone is a semi-precious gemstone frequently incorporated into some of the most modern, beautiful handmade jewelry in the world. It is most often found in shades of shimmering white, and is widely recognized as the June Birthstone. But beyond its modern-day uses and associations, moonstone holds a decadent mythological, spiritual and etymological history that adds nostalgic value to its already strong aesthetic worth. Read on for more information that will help you fall in love with your moonstone jewelry or inspire you to buy some today!

The name moonstone comes from the shimmering appearance this stone displays, which appears different whenever the stone moves. This phenomena is called adularescence. Adulerescence is due to the interior makeup of scales or lamellas structure of the Moonstone. When incoming rays of light hit these scales, it is refracted and scattered into a unique play of light.

Moonstone is a variety of the species feldspar. On earth, two thirds of the stones are varieties of Feldspars! Moonstones particular orthoclase feldspar variety is called “adularia,” because it was found in the European Alps near the Adula-group, and also contains the silicate of potassium aluminum in gemstone quality. Another synonym for Moonstone is “Selenite,” after Selene, Greek goddess of the moon.

Moonstone gemstones look best as parts of formal evening jewelry when paired with Black Onyx, dark amethyst or black diamonds. More casual combinations include softer contrasts of brilliant moonstone with rose quartz, peridot or topaz. To see a selection of handmade artisan jewelry featuring moonstone, visit www.dashaboutique.com/shopbygemstone. Moonstone is typically considered a sophisticated gemstone that works well with any outfit. In earrings, it works especially well to enhance the luster of dark or light blue eyes.

Moonstones body color comes in a large array of hues: blues, green, orange and peaches, smoky beiges, and brown, dependent on the origin of the stone. Sri Lanka was the first origin for Moonstone, which are a shimmering pale blue against an almost transparent background.

Moonstone is often considered the perfect choice for jewelry designs that display sensuous and feminine character. About a hundred years ago, Moonstone was also once a very popular gem to set into jewelry, in the times of Art Nouveau. Moonstone populated many jewelry designs created by the famous French Master Goldsmith, Ren Lalique, and by his contemporaries. Nowadays, these creations can only be seen in museums or in collections.

Moonstone has long been considered a sacred and magical gemstone. Centuries ago, the shimmering adularescent property was thought to resemble the phases of waxing and waning of the moon. In Arab countries, this stone was sewn into womans garments, because it was was believed to be the symbol of fertility. In India, Moonstone was called the “dream stone,” as it was believed to bring beautiful, sweet dreams. It is also thought to symbolize the holistic view of the wearer–its soft shine will support the dreamy, emotional tendencies of the person. These associations are what make Moonstone an ideal choice for lovers, bringing forth feelings of tenderness and true love. Moonstone is also thought to bring about mental clarity, balancing the ying/yang of the wearer, and an overall sense of comfort. It is mined in Sri Lanka, and India, as well as Australia, Brazil, Madagascar, the United States and Tanzania.

Mohs’ Hardness score is based on a 10 point scale where 10 is the most resistant, like a diamond, and 1 is easily scratched, such as Talc. Moonstone gets a score of 6.-6.5, meaning that it is somewhat scratch resistant and therefore suitable as a component of jewelry. Moonstone gemstones should be regularly cleaned by a professional or with a soft rag and mild soap and water. Avoid ultra-sonic cleaners, solvents and harsh chemicals when cleaning your handcrafted jewelry as exposure to these elements can damage semi-precious and precious gemstones and pearls.

Learn more about all semi-precious gemstones, including amethyst, apatite, black onyx, blue topaz, carnelian, chalcedony, citrine, coral, garnet, white topaz, crystal, diamond, emerald, iolite, jade, Labradorite, moonstone, pearl, peridot, prehnite, rose quarz, ruby, sapphire, smokey topaz, tanzanite, tourmaline and tourquoise when you check out this gemstone chart: www.dashaboutique.com/gemstone chart.html.

Homes of six Minnesota politicians vandalized

Tuesday, October 28, 2008

An unknown person or persons wrote graffiti and vandalized the exterior of homes belonging to six members of the United States congressional delegation from the state of Minnesota late last Monday night or early Tuesday morning.

According to the Star Tribune, Laurie Coleman, wife of U.S. Senator Norm Coleman, found the words “U R A CRIMINAL, RESIGN OR ELSE! PSALM 2” written on the family’s garage. The word “SCUM” was also written in three places on another side of the garage. Psalm 2 is a biblical reference.

The homes of senator Amy Klobuchar, and U.S. representatives Michele Bachmann, Keith Ellison, John Kline and Jim Ramstad were also targeted by vandals. Ellison’s house was the only one that sustained damage.

We’re looking at this as an actual threat.

Peter Panos, St. Paul Police spokesman, told the Star Tribune that threatening message in the graffiti were cause for concern.

“We’re looking at this as an actual threat,” he told the Star Tribune. “We’re taking it quite seriously. Vandalism threats are pretty rare in this city.”

Bachmann, Coleman, Kline and Ramstad are Republicans. Klobuchar and Ellison are Democrats. All live in the Minneapolis-Saint Paul metropolitan area. Reps. Collin Peterson and Jim Oberstar, who live in out state Minnesota, along with Rep. Betty McCollum — who lives in a condominium, did not receive vandalism to their homes. Senate candidates Al Franken and Dean Barkley, who are running against Coleman in the November elections, condemned the vandalism.

There’s no place for this unacceptable behavior in our political process, or in our communities

“There’s no place for this unacceptable behavior in our political process, or in our communities,” Franken’s campaign told the St. Paul Pioneer Press. The paper said that the Franken campaign office was the victim of graffiti attacks including the words “Crazy” and “No New Taxes.”

Federal and local authorities are still investigating these incidents, as well as similar incidents that took place in Missouri.

Over the weekend, a Minnesota hair salon was targeted. Police say it may have been a copycat vandal, though the salon is said to be patronized by Norm Coleman.

Donald Trump plans £300m “golfing paradise” for rural Scotland

Saturday, April 1, 2006

American multi-billionaire Donald Trump has announced plans to build a massive golf complex on an 800-acre site just north of Aberdeen, Scotland.

Speaking last night from the Trump Tower in New York, Trump said that the development will be akin to a “homecoming” for him. The ginger-haired property tycoon’s mother is from the Western Isles of Scotland.

The £300m project at Menie in Aberdeenshire will include both a links course and an inland course, and a 400-bedroom hotel as well as a golfing academy and holiday homes. The facilities are being built with the intention of attracting the Open Championship to the site, officially dubbed Trump International Golf Links, Scotland.

Fields and sand-dunes make up the landscape of the coastal site. Trump said of the location, “As soon as I saw it there was no question about it. I looked at 211 fantastic sites all over Europe, but here it is – the dune size and the ocean front. There is no piece of land that I have ever seen that is comparable to this.” The billionaire claims that the complex, set to be his only development outside the United States, will be the “best course in the world.”

Local and national political figures, including Scottish First Minister Jack McConnell, have welcomed the announcement with open arms, as the project is expected to bring in an additional £157m to the region’s economy within the first ten years. Scottish tourism company VisitScotland is also optimistic, expecting an influx of international visitors to play on (or simply visit) the site. Plans to expand the A90 road running past the site in the near future will enable more road traffic to and around the area. An £60m expansion of Aberdeen Airport will also allow for vastly increased international air links, akin to those operated using Boeing 767 aircraft.

Work on the golf complex itself is set to begin in September this year, with the Trump Organisation hopeful for a Spring 2008 opening date.

Muslim hair stylist sues hairdresser over alleged discrimination

Friday, November 9, 2007

British-born Muslim hair stylist Bushra Noah is currently undertaking legal action against the owner of a hair salon for alleged religious discrimination. Noah is suing London hair salon owner Sarah Desroiser. Desroiser who runs a salon in King’s Cross, has said that she would not accept Noah as a stylist if Noah’s hair was covered. Noah, like many devout Muslims keeps her hair covered in public places, believing it to be immodest otherwise.

Noah claims that her headscarf is a fundamental part of her religious beliefs and that wearing the scarf would not interfere in her carrying out the job at all. Desrosiers said that it is not discrimination but rather that “the essence of my line of work is the display of hair. To me, it’s absolutely basic that people should be able to see the stylist’s hair. It has nothing to do with religion. It is just unfortunate that for her covering her hair symbolises religion.” Desosiers added that she had worked with Muslims in the past and employs a Muslim accountant.

Noah claims that the state of her own hair is irrelevant to her ability to style others hair.

The last few years have seen a string of similar cases in Britain. Last year, there was a case over whether a British Airways employee could wear a prominent cross, and another case in which a teacher argued that she had a right to wear a Jilb?b (a traditional Islamic dress that covers almost the entire body) in the classroom. In that case, the teacher lost in the High Court.

Death toll from Borneo bridge collapse reaches eleven

Monday, November 28, 2011

The death toll from the weekend suspension bridge collapse on the Indonesian island of Borneo has risen from four to eleven. Search and rescue teams continue to look for bodies in the Mahakam River.

The number of wounded is currently 39 injured; reports from locals suggest 33 people remain missing at the scene in East Kalimantan’s Kutai Kartanegara district, where “Kalimantan’s Golden Gate Bridge” linked the towns of Tenggarong and the regional capital, Samarinda. A six-month-old baby is among the dead.

Cars, motorbikes, and buses all fell into the Mahakam River when the bridge came down during repairs. Another car was left overturned and balanced upon wreckage over the water. State-owned builders PT Hutama Karya completed the bridge about a decade ago in the image of California’s Golden Gate Bridge. A cable on the 720-metre structure is thought to have failed as workers dealt with it; six of the repair crew were reported missing yesterday. It had been the longest suspension bridge in Borneo.

Eyewitnesses described heavy traffic at the time of the collapse, and one survivor said he left his truck to investigate a traffic jam. Some people were left trapped by debris as the bridge came down. “It happened so fast, only about 30 seconds,” according to National Disaster Management Agency spokesman Sutopo Nugoroho.

National search and rescue head Daryatmo said yesterday cranes will attempt to move debris today, with new reports saying echo-sounding equipment will be used to check it is safe to begin lifting. It is believed the bodies of more victims will be found trapped in vehicles beneath the water, which is 35-40 metres deep. Visibility is poor, and one official explained authorities are still unsure how many vehicles are on the riverbed.

“The above-water search is continuing, but underwater operations have not been carried out because we’re worried that the bridge’s pylons are unstable and could collapse any time,” said Nugoroho today. He explained that bodies had washed onto the riverbanks overnight and were recovered today.

The president, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, has sent three ministers to the site to investigate the accident, while Bambang Widaryatmo, head of East Kalimantan’s police, promised “parties found to be negligent will be prosecuted”. The government has promised a replacement ferry service. The river is closed to boats as rescue operations continue, and a 22-strong team has been dispatched from the national police, comprising six forensics experts, five disaster victim identification specialists, and eleven investigators. They are there to augment the East Kalimantan Police. Health Minister Endang Rahayu Sedyaningsih yesterday visited survivors in Parikesit Hospital and promised them medical treatment at government expense.

Some people swam ashore after falling, with the aftermath filled with screams. Survivor Syakrani, 24, yesterday asserted “The authorities should have closed the bridge if it was under repair.” His words were followed by a Jakarta Globe editorial declaring the accident “unacceptable”.

The Globe went on to comment upon suggestions corruption may have played a role; “It is too early to point fingers and look to place blame, but if shoddy materials were used in the building of the bridge, those responsible must answer to the public.” Another suggestion is coal barges striking the bridge may have weakened it. Local coal company Harum Energy lost five percent of its share value today amid fears the river blockage will hamper their ability to ship coal.

Samarinda’s seen a population and construction boom lately. A few years have seen the population triple and the construction of a large mosque, and a sports stadium; an airport and port are set to follow. However, the Corruption Eradication Commission warns 70% of the corruption it investigates concerns government contracts and up to 40% of money earmarked for infrastructure ends up stolen.
