Continuing his popular Medical Matters column, this week Dr Ciaran Roarty of Scally McDaid Roarty Medical Practice talks about acne. Acne is a common problem mainly associated with the teenage years though it can affect young babies and older adults. It causes black, red or white spots on the face, neck, back and chest. It more commonly affects boys and most teenagers develop it to some degree. Blocked skin pores (which usually have hair growing out of them and release oil) become infected with bacteria and this is usually the underlying problem with acne. Sometimes other conditions e.g. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome can also cause acne.Can anything make it worse?Covering acne with a lot of creams and makeup can exacerbate things as well as constantly touching your face with your hands (which can spread germs). Tight clothing, excessive sweating and certain medicines can also make things worse as well as picking or squeezing the spots. Poor hygiene does not cause acne and stress while not helping acne, is not a cause for it. Advice to people with acneWash twice a day with lukewarm water and an antiseptic wash. Do not use strong soaps and avoid abrasive cleansers with granules. Air dry your face. Your doctor can advise on various treatments which work really well for acne. Each individual is different however and your treatment may have to be tailored for you. They do take time to take effect. Your doctor may advise a topical gel or cream containing, for example, benzoyl peroxide. Other topical treatments that are prescribed are known as retinoids and your doctor will likely explain to you about any possible side effects and using sunblock. Topical antibiotics may be prescribed in combination with other treatments also. Antibiotic tablets work by killing germs that contribute to causing acne and are often prescribed along with a topical treatment. It takes time to work and it is important to tell your doctor if you intend becoming pregnant before commencing as some of the above treatments will not be advised. Certain contraceptive pills may help acne, while others can exacerbate it. Other more powerful tablets are also sometimes prescribed for more severe acne and they work by reducing the amount of oil made by your skin. Any treatment takes up to 6 weeks for there to be any effect and may take up to 4 months to be most effective so you need to give it a chance to work. Ongoing topical treatments may be needed to keep spots at bay once the initial treatment has finished. Scars from acne can be treated by laser treatment, peeling treatments and collagen injections though these can be quite expensive. The above information is intended as advice only and should you have any concerns please contact your own Doctor. Dr Ciarán Roarty MB, BCh BAO MICGP DRCOG Grad. Cert. Obst.

A New England solar installer with operations in three states faced a challenging shortage of licensed electricians in the region’s labor pool. So the solar contractor is opening its own training centers for electricians. ReVision Energy, with 225 employees and more than 7,000 solar installations to its credit, is now training 34 students in Maine and another 20 in Massachusetts, Mainebiz reported. The company has opened the Revision Energy Technical Center in Brentwood, New Hampshire, and will operate similar centers at its other New England locations. ReVision, a certified B Corporation, became employee-owned last year. It currently has offices in Portland and Liberty, Maine; Concord and Brentwood, New Hampshire; and North Andover, Massachusetts.RELATED ARTICLESTackling the Skilled Labor ShortageFine Homebuilding Will Award ScholarshipsConstruction Training Gets a Boost from Home DepotYoung Adults and the Construction Trades “What we’re trying to do is take control over the fact that licensed electricians are one of the biggest challenges in the renewable energy sector today,” ReVision co-founder Phil Coupe told Mainebiz. Nathan Poland, the company’s electrical coordinator (and the person who developed the training program), said the shortage of licensed electricians has become “critical.” No amount of advertising could attract the number of electricians the company needs, because they simply aren’t there. In the past, Poland said, helpers could become licensed through more traditional avenues, such as course work at a community college. But that might have required going to school at night, or taking time off from work to attend classes, and schools weren’t necessarily within easy commuting distance. Students enrolled in the ReVision Energy program are taught by licensed electricians who already work for the company. They get a mix of classroom and practical training on the way toward certification and are paid as apprentices while they are being trained. During times of the year when work slows, ReVision goes to a four-day work week, freeing Friday for hands-on instruction. Students can fulfill other course requirements on weekends or online. Ultimately, Revision plans to hire as many as 15 licensed electricians to beef up its staff, between two and five for each of its locations. A shortage of skilled workers is a national problem A lack of skilled labor is a problem affecting the construction industry in general, not just solar installers. A survey by the National Association of Home Builders earlier this year found that many specialties are in short supply. Shortages were listed for virtually every type of sub who works on a house — finish carpenters, concrete workers, painters, roofers, HVAC installers, and plumbers. A total of 83% of builders responding to the survey, for example, said there is “some shortage” or a “serious shortage” of rough carpenters. Electricians ranked near the middle of the pack — not in as critically short supply as, say, framing crews, but scarcer than flooring installers, HVAC workers, or excavators. Seventeen percent of the builders said there is a serious shortage of electricians; another 43% said there was some shortage. The consequence of a lack of skilled workers, NAHB said, are higher bids from subcontractors and higher wages paid to employees, higher home prices, and trouble completing projects on time. The shortfall is typically attributed to a mass exodus from the trades following the recession that began in 2008 and a lack of interest among many high school graduates to pursue that kind of career. Vocational training has been eliminated at some high schools. But, as The Washington Post points out, skilled tradesmen often earn above average wages. The median wage for electricians is $52,720, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics; the highest paid 10% of workers in that field earn more than $90,420. Skilled labor shortages were the impetus for the launch of Fine Homebuilding‘s #KeepCraftAlive program.

Touch Football Australia (TFA) is pleased to announce the captains of the All Stars teams that will play next Friday, 13 February at Cbus Stadium on the Gold Coast. Touch Football will feature prominently in the overall event program for the first time in 2015; featuring some of Australia’s best players comprising a TFA All Stars Mixed team set to play an Indigenous All Stars Mixed team as a curtain-raiser to the Rugby League match.Australian Mixed Open captain, Kylie Hilder will captain the TFA All Stars team, while Australian representatives, Trent Touma (Mixed) and Marikki Watego (Women’s) will co-captain the Indigenous All Stars team. TFA All Star coach, Micheal Lovett said that Hilder was an easy selection based on the work they’ve done together at an Australian level over the past cycle as coach and captain of the Australian Mixed Open team respectively. “She is a very good leader of males and females and younger up-and-coming players, as well as the more experienced players,” Lovett said. “She is getting towards the twilight of her career but doesn’t leave anything to chance. She is well prepared fitness-wise, she works on always improving and sets a good on-field example like at last year’s National Touch League where she guided the young New South Wales Scorpions team to the Elite Eight Women’s title.”“She is very passionate about where she has come from in her Touch Football career and always remembers who has helped her get to where she is. She is proud of the Australian crest she wears and instils that into her fellow athletes.”Hilder says that being named captain of the All Stars team is a great honour and that she cannot wait until next week’s game. “To be part of this inaugural Touch Football All Stars game is amazing. Just to be selected to play with some of the best talent currently in the game is overwhelming but then to get named as captain and lead this talent has made me speechless,” Hilder said.“Being named as a captain of any team is one of the greatest honours any athlete can receive and for me being named as the first captain of the NRL All Stars Touch Football side means so much to me and will be something I will never ever forget and a highlight of my career.”Indigenous All Stars coach, Phil Gyemore said that Touma and Watego were ‘both proud indigenous players who have progressed through the Touch Football High Performance program and into the Open teams’. “They are both really strong chances of playing in the 2015 World Cup in Coffs Harbour and all players, not just Indigenous players, should be trying to follow in the footsteps of these young aspiring Touch Football players that would like to represent their country on home soil. They will be great leaders for the Indigenous All Stars team and are fully aware of the honour and what it means to lead this young but exciting Touch Football team on the Gold Coast.”Watego says she is ‘extremely excited’ to be named in the side and ‘truly humbled’ to be named co-captain. “Being fortunate enough to hold a position in this highly coveted team is something that I will never forget. It’s such a great honour and privilege to be selected to represent the Indigenous community whilst playing the sport I love. I really hope that this initiative will inspire both young Indigenous and Non-Indigenous Touch Footy players to get involved and pursue Touch be it socially or competitively.”“To me, there is no higher honour than representing your family and your people in the wider community and I know my co-captain Trent, my team mates and I will cherish this opportunity.”“It would be great to see this game become a permanent fixture in the Touch Football and NRL calendar! I just can’t wait to go into camp next week and prepare for what should be an exciting game of Touch Footy!”Touma says that the game will be one of the biggest honours of his sporting career. “To be noticed by selectors to represent the Indigenous All Star team and also my people is one of the biggest honours in my sporting career. The day I received a phone call from I could not answer with a big yes quick enough,” Touma said. “On top of being selected in this great team I was this week announced as captain alongside Marikki, a great talent in the game today. Being proud enough to represent my people but also captain this team will stay with me for a lifetime.” The game will be played at 3.00pm on Friday, 13 February. Stay tuned to www.touchfootball.com.au in the coming days to find out how you can watch the live stream of the game! Related LinksAll Stars Captains
avery johnson alabamaFormer NBA point guard and head coach Avery Johnson was recently hired to take over the reins of the Alabama basketball program, which has reached just one NCAA Tournament in the past nine seasons. Johnson has a tall task ahead of him, but he has lofty goals for his new squad, saying during his introductory press conference his program will try and live up to the standard set by Duke, the 2014-15 national champions. “Duke University, that’s the standard for us here at the University of Alabama and our basketball program,” Johnson said. “The way they play defense and offense. The way they move the ball, that’s the standard. Nobody else is the standard. That’s the standard. Duke University. That’s why I’m here.”If imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, it also makes for good publicity in this case. Judging by its Instagram post this morning, the Duke program is using Johnson’s quote to its marketing advantage.An obvious, but savvy move by Duke. We’re sure Johnson isn’t the only coach looking to get his program on the level of the Blue Devils but it’s easier said than done.
