My cousin Mai Mohyeldin, voting for the first time in her life. Her niece Fareeda, looks on. Future generations of Egyptians will grow up knowing their civic responsibilities and rights in the wake of the revolution.By , NBC NewsAfter boycotting politics for much of their lives, my aunt Faten, 64, and my cousins, Mai, 27, and Reham, 33, along with Reham two daughters, Habeeba, 6, and Fareeda, 1, braved the heat and stood in line to vote.Like millions of other Egyptians, they were claiming a stake in their country. Their decisions were in the works for weeks, but it only took a few minutes to cast their ballots in what could be the most important choice any of them has made in shaping their country's future.'We want to live . like human beings': Egyptians votewas important to vote because these were the first elections after the revolution. The next president will have so much to do to put this country on a better path, which is what everybody wants, Mai says.As for my aunt Faten, she never imagined that she would vote in a genuine election in Egypt during her lifetime.Standing in front of the five story building where I once lived with my parents and brother, and where my extended family still lives, I saw myself 30 years earlier as a little boy looking out the back window of a car loaded with luggage heading to the airport.My parents had seen Egypt glory days in the 1960s and 1970s fade away after President Hosni Mubarak took power in 1981. So, they like so many others emigrated.There were good reasons to leave Egypt.My aunt, uncles and cousins sat idly year after year as Egyptian leaders were confirmed by popular referenda. Corruption flourished, and people votes and voices mattered less and less.thought my daughters would never genuinely vote in their lifetime either, she says.My cousins Reham and Mai are both around my age. They grew up in an Egypt gripped by the sense of bleakness and lack of opportunity that had driven my parents to emigrate.Their vote on Wednesday was meant to reverse those stagnant decades. More precisely, their vote was simply about believing they could reverse those times.These presidential elections Egypt first free and fair vote were a step along a painstaking process that began nearly 16 months ago with a public uprising that swept Mubarak from power.For many who live in active democracies, the idea of casting a ballot can be taken for granted: Voting, whether it's for local councils or presidents, is a routine, often fleeting moment squeezed into the day before rushing off to work or perhaps during a lunch break.But this historic moment is not lost on people in budding democracies, like Egypt My family voted knowing that others had died to make it possible.Aside from the politics of the vote who they would vote for, why they chose their candidate, what did they want their candidate to achieve on their behalf there was an underlying belief among my aunt and cousins that this time they had a role, this time their voice mattered, this time the candidates have to work to earn their trust.My family lived one of the paradoxes of Egypt revolution. On Jan. 25, 2011, when the movement began, they sat in the comfort of their home, anxiously watching what was unfolding just a few miles away.They didn participate in the revolution and never went to Tahrir Square, the epicenter of the protests. The weight of apathy from years of being marginalized as citizens was too much to overcome.

The cause of most heel pain in children differs somewhat from heel pain in adults, and is therefore treated a little differently. This article discusses the nature of heel pain in children, and how it can be relieved. Heel pain is common across all age groups and activity levels. In adults, this pain is usually caused by inflammation of a ligament on the bottom of the arch called the plantar fascia. Commonly referred to as a heel spur since a bone spur sometimes accompanies this condition (although the spur itself is not the source of pain), this painful injury is usually caused by abnormal foot structure straining the arch tissue. It is commonly found in those with flat feet, high arches, or those who work on ladders or stairs frequently. Treatment involves reducing the inflammation with medicine, stretching the arch, and supporting the foot structure with shoe inserts. Some children can also get this condition, particularly if they are flat footed or are obese. However, the majority of the time, heel pain in children is caused by a natural process that affects the growth plate in the heel bone (calcaneus). As humans grow, the bones become longer and wider. Although some foot bones initially develop from cartilage molds before birth, the majority the foot bone size develops from growth plates found within each bone. These growth plates are soft areas found at one end of the bone or the other, and are set up to produce bone like a factory, constantly pushing bone out in a direction away from the growth plate. This effectively lengthens and widens the bone. Eventually, in the late teen years, this growth stops and the growth plates themselves fuse into bone. In the heel bone, the growth plate is located along the bottom back of the bone, where the heel bone is rounded to form the 'ball' of the heel. Sometime in late childhood to the early teen years, inflammation and swelling can begin to develop in the growth plate region. Not every child experiences this condition, also known as Sever's disease. It can develop on its own without injury or overactivity, although chronic repetitive stress can have a role. Girls seem to develop it earlier, presumably because of earlier growth activity. There is no inherent problem with the growth plate during this process, and growth continues uninterrupted. The inflammation continues until it runs its course, although continued athletic activity during this time prolongs the inflammation. From a physiological perspective, the inflammation can technically continue until the growth plate fuses into bone in the late teen years, although it is uncommon for this condition to last so long. However, most kids suffer through the discomfort for several months at least. The symptoms of this condition are fairly specific. The pain begins with walking, running, or standing for awhile. It is located along the bottom back part of the heel, and may include some pain traveling up the Achilles tendon. Arch pain can sometimes be felt, but this has more to do with irritation of the arch due to limping from the heel pain than from the growth plate pain itself. Skin swelling, warmth, redness, or other external signs of this inflammation are rarely seen. The child with this condition will have difficulty participating in sports or other activity due to the pain, but usually will persist with that activity since the pain is rarely severe enough to outright prevent them from staying active. Unfortunately, this will only prolong the condition. The Achilles tendon also plays a role in this condition. Since the Achilles tendon attaches to the heel bone along the near side of the growth plate, any tightness in this tendon can exert excessive pressure on the growth plate. The pressure, which essentially is extra traction on the back of the growth plate, causes further inflammation and irritation. On rare instances, the growth plate itself may not be inflamed from a natural process but rather from an injury that has caused a fracture. Growth plate fractures in the heel bone are rare, but do occur. Causes can include a fall from a moderate height as well as a hard kick backwards onto a firm object. Treatment centers around supporting the inflamed growth plate and allowing it to settle down on it's own. Rest from running and other impact activities is vital, and may be necessary for weeks to months. Icing the heel several times a day helps, as do over the counter children's medications like ibuprofen. Heel stretching will relieve any traction the Achilles tendon will place on the heel bone itself, and the use of inserts with a deep heel cup can control heel pressure and side to side motion in shoes. Sometimes it is because the parents are not forceful enough in enforcing the rest period in kids that don't want to stop activity, and sometimes it is the parent's refusal to keep their kids out of sports temporarily out of some misguided need to keep their kids 'fresh in the game'. Regardless, the reality of the situation is simple: most children are not world class athletes whose fame and fortune rests on continuing in the sport, and they certainly don't have professional athletic trainers and therapists at their disposal each game dedicated to getting them through the pain. Taking a few months off is not going to adversely effect their future. Parents and children need to take a step back and realize that this condition needs to be rested, as it can potentially linger into the late teen years where the potential to participate in collegiate athletics can definitely be effected. It should be noted as well that this condition can potentially return after it resolves if the growth plate has not yet fused. Although less common, repeated bouts of the inflammation are possible, especially in very active children. Although this condition is generally treated easily at home, and although growth plate inflammation is usually at fault to begin with, there is a possibility that the heel pain can be due to a another reason. As mentioned earlier, fractures do occur, though rare, and other injuries around the heel region can mimic this growth plate inflammation. At times, heel pain can have complicated causes, some of which can include nerve damage or may indicate diseases elsewhere in the body. A proper evaluation by a foot specialist can determine the true cause of the condition, and will ensure the best treatment course possible for the underlying cause. Even if a parent simply concludes that their child's heel pain is due to the growth plate based on this and other internet articles, a foot evaluation by a podiatrist is recommended to be absolutely certain. With proper care, growth plate inflammation can be easily resolved, and, if there are other conditions present, long term problems can be avoided if early medical intervention is given. Infrared 6s,Foot odor may be embarrassing, but it's the least of your problems when it comes to managing the massive bacterial or fungal colony that's sprung to life in your favorite footwear. Athlete's foot (which is a fungal infection) can cause your skin to become itchy and flaky. Bacterial infections can lead to pus and swelling. Fungal toenail infections are notoriously difficult to get rid of and tend to reoccur throughout your life. While these may seem like minor annoyances to some, to others they pose serious health risks. Diabetics, for example, need to keep their feet and shoes dry, cool and clean to prevent infections from forming in the feet and then spreading to the lower limbs. People with foot deformities such as bunions or hammertoes are at greater risk for foot ulcers and will want to make sure their shoes are bacteria and fungal free so that an infection does not develop in the event that the deformed area of the foot becomes irritated. There are some things you can do on your own to prevent your shoes from attracting these obnoxious microbes. Purchase multiple pairs of shoes so that you're not wearing the same pair everyday. Dry your shoes after wearing them. Purchase shoes with removable insoles so that you can be sure you're drying them thoroughly. The bad news is that some of us are simply predisposed to attracting bacteria and fungi. The good news is that there is plenty of new technology that can help us in the fight! Silver, for example, is a natural anti microbial agent and so several major shoe companies have lined their athletic shoes with the precious metal using a fiber called X Static. This fiber will not only eliminate bacteria and fungi in your shoes, it will also eliminate foul foot odor that is a byproduct of these microbes. Other anti microbial agents are also on the market such as an inorganic zinc based thermoplastic resin popular in hiking boots. Athletic shoes can also be lined with fabric designed to wick away moisture. These fabrics may not fight microbes directly, but they do help to eliminate the sweaty environment that attracts them in the first place.

Have you ever heard of the term coaching? I am sure many people are familiar with sports coaching. There are many sports trainers out there and by trainers I am not referring to a pair of training boots or shoes. These trainers will take charge of either individual or a group or team of athletes and be in charge of training them up so that they would be able to perform their best at a competition. The sports coach or manager as he is sometimes called as he is involved in managing the team as well, will chart the progress of the sportsman or team and make sure they perform satisfactorily till they reach the competition date or even better the finals of the competition after going through the quarter and semi finals. There are actually certain similarities between a life coach and a sports coach. The sports coach would be involved in many aspects of the sport, including physical and mental player development. Sports coaches train their athletes to become better at the physical components of the game. As the athletes train, they develop greater skill in addition to the physical prowess. Their minds also develop mentally as they are required to make decisions on the field while they are undergoing physical stress and duress, with their bodies being pushed to the limit of physical endurance. While the physical component is not so tough for a client who is going through life coaching, he or she is also being pushed to his or her best, and it would only be through this process that the life coach would plan for his or her client to achieve what he or she has not achieved and aims to achieve. If you are interested in engaging a life coach, a sports coach would already make quite a good candidate. Anyway I may have digressed a little. The sports coach is assumed to know more about the sport. The word assumed is used here because there is no way to measure how much knowledge a person may have about something. However, most sport coaches should already have previous experience and knowledge on the sport as they were past players or may have already played in the big games or competitions. The main job of the coach is then to transfer as much of his or her own knowledge and experience to the new players such that they can become skilled in the game as well. If you are interested in playing a sport, you can always engage a sports coach for yourself. This coach would then take responsibility for your overall performance and results of the sport which you are playing. However, I would suggest that you engage a life coach who would be able to make a difference to your life. He would be able to help you achieve advanced goals and aspirations. If you would want to know more about life coaching, please feel free to check out this website for more resources. Infrared 6s Fast food, the quick service restaurant (QSR), this is a special opportunity for some special people these jobs are also filled by high school students, college students, stranded tourists, housewives, people who are strapped for cash, refugees, and retirees. Most of these jobs require black shoes or black sneakers. This is the most important part of your uniform, as you will be standing up all day during this job. Some employers offer you a new pair of shoes or sneakers as part of the uniform package. You will need to wear shoes that fit right, shoes that are sturdy, durable, and comfortable for you to wear. If you cannot find shoes, you may need to consult with Dress for Success, an organization that helps clothe people that do not have a lot of money for clothing, or Goodwill, or Saint Vincent de Paul, or The Salvation Army. You will be able to receive an outfit from one of these organizations that will impress your interviewer. Fast food restaurants are "down" or downscale retail storefronts. If you are neat, clean, well groomed, and are able to be friendly without saying a whole lot of words, you will do fantastically well at the fast food restaurant, or QSR (quick service restaurant). If you are looking for a company to help pay for your college, many of these companies offer scholarships, or programs that will help pay for your tuition, and/or books, if you have reasonably good grades. If you are able to keep a 3.0 GPA, or even a 2.5 GPA, your tuition burden will be lightened by the company you work for. Most QSR, or fast food companies will provide you with one or two workshirts, and one or two pair of trousers to wear to work. There is no need to worry about uniforms, although, you may need to write a request every week politely and patiently in order to obtain two workshirts in your size. Washing your uniform daily going to the laundromat is difficult at times if you do not have a machine in your house. I use cheap shampoo (V05, Suave, Lander), the $1.00 per bottle shampoo, and wash my shirt off in the sink. The shampoo is cheaper than laundry detergent, and the stains usually are removed from the dark uniform shirt enough to look right, and smell pleasantly for the next day of work. If the shirt does not dry overnight, .25 cents will dry it at the local laundromat. What if I have a white shirt? Be certain to spot treat the shirt at work, before you go home, even if it is with a dilute cleaning solution from the janitorial spray bottle. You need to be careful with the bleaching of your white uniform shirt. Fill a clean bucket (not a little sand bucket, a gallon sized bucket at the very smallest) 1/2 full with water, then add 1/2 cup of bleach, then add your shirt. Let the shirt soak for at least three (3) hours in the diluted bleach solution. If you did not notice this stain until you arrived back to your pad/crib/place, you should still be allright. Check on the stain, it should be completely gone three hours later. Take the shirt out, place in the sink, (check the bucket for any undies that might have wafted into the bucket, and remove if found in the bucket), then, dump the water/bleach into the toilet. Then, you can wash your shirt in the sink with that cheap perfumed shampoo, so it has that pleasant qsr smell that will help you to fit in with your co workers. Leave the nice doodads at home. You can buy jewelry from a gumball machine and wear it to this job order. You can make hair ornaments yourself, or necklaces, and your coworkers will appreciate it. You can wear those trinkets to work that you could not wear to your office job. Key words to use: Hello, good day, greetings customer! May I take your order please?, May I help you? Is there anything else you would like? Would you like to supersize that? Thank you for your order always be polite to the customer. Keep your eye on the cash, double count the cash, make sure that your drawer contains exactly the money that your cash register receipts say that it contains. Make sure that you are an accurate cash handler. Please note this is not a career, unless you are planning to become the restaurant manager. Training people to work at the shop: you can have your phone ringing off the hook, have every employer in town calling you, if you interview well. Your entire house can be employed just by using these simple tips. Remember, there are only so many restaurants in a given town, if your housemates get the bright idea of starting a QSR (Quick Service Restaurant) employment agency, the whole place could go belly up in weeks. If you are going to be employing friends, let your friends swim, or let them quit. Just try to relax, be peaceful, and enjoy your day at work, while working.
