    ? HVAC Computers/Networks Q. A. Why is my computer running so slow? Lance Corbit Technician 1. Malware infection and/or malicious applications running in the background. These are typically from downloaded software or websites that have hidden software that installs automatically. 2. Windows Updates either running or queued for installation. If you have Windows 10 they changed the way they were thinking and are attempting to make the Windows 10 Operating System act much more like your phone, in other words, when updates are available, you get them, Good, Bad or Indifferent. 3. Malfunctioning hardware. Crashing hard drives, especially in laptops, will cause extreme sluggishness and crashing when they occur. Clogged fans are another issue that cause components run hotter over long periods of time and this can cause computers to run poorly and crash. Q. A.

Yankton Vermillion Sioux City 2018 Broadway, Yankton www.kalinsindoor.com 665-4348 Pharmacy/Nutrition Funeral & Cremation clothes Q.What to bring do Imy need for deceased loved one? A. New Guidelines For Aspirin Cheyenne (Schroeder) Schenkel Funeral Director Firstly, you need to decide what outfit you would like to use. This can be anything from highly formal wear to their favorite pair of overalls. Secondly, remember to include undergarments. Many people forget to bring socks, underwear, dress slips, tshirt, ect. It s important to remember the modesty and dignity of the deceased. While most funeral homes will have some spare pairs of undergarments around, it s best to use the deceased s own preferential clothes. Thirdly, bring any jewelry (such as rings, necklace, tie tack, pins, glasses, watch, bracelet, etc) you would like the deceased to wear. You can bring shoes if they were important to the deceased, but shoes are uncommon in the traditional Midwest and also can be very difficult to put on. Lastly, ask if the funeral director has any requests or ideas for specific articles of clothing. Embalming, restorative care, and makeup can do a lot to create the perception of a peaceful and tranquil deceased loved one. Yet a deceased s physical abnormalities (such as excessive hand bruising, tumors, chemotherapy induced baldness, etc) can be a somber distraction to a grieving family. It s amazing what a simple handkerchief, scarf, stocking cap, etc can do to restore a favorable impression of the deceased. There is talk out there about whether NSAIDS Leah Rempfer (like ibuprofen and naproxen) reduce the Hy-Vee Pharmacist cardiovascular protective effect of aspirin. Aspirin and ibuprofen compete for the same receptor sites which may reduce aspirin s antiplatelet effect. OTC ibuprofen labels give such a warning, but now naproxen labels may also be jumping on board with the warning. Patients with a high cardiovascular risk should limit NSAIDS, but chronic NSAID use with aspirin may only lead to a small decrease in the antiplatelet effect of aspirin. If those on low-dose aspirin therapy need a chronic NSAID, do not be too concerned about the interaction. Make sure to be consistent with the aspirin therapy, because that is most important. If there is concern about an interaction between aspirin and NSAIDS, patients can take nonenteric-coated aspirin about 30 minutes before an NSAID. Do not be concerned about NSAIDS taken once in a while interacting with aspirin therapy or topical NSAIDS either.

I have been doing some high intensity interval training for a couple of months now and am finding myself more sore than usual. Any suggestions? A. Q. Dr. Bailey, I have difficulty hearing and want to hear better, but I am afraid if I Kendra Bailey, get hearing aids it will make my Au.D. CCC-A hearing worse. What should I do? You are not alone. Many people are fearful hearing aids will accelerate the progression of their hearing loss. However, the opposite is true. Hearing loss affects our hearing nerves like a cast affects our muscles. When our hearing nerves aren t stimulated they weaken and become less efficient just like our muscles when they have been in a cast for several weeks. Hearing aids amplify sounds that would otherwise not be loud enough to stimulate our impaired ears. Similar to how lifting weights exercises our muscles, hearing aids exersize our ears. This is why it is not wise to procrastinate when you realize hearing difficulties. For more information, feel free to contact our clinic at (605)655-1220. A. Avera Sacred Heart Hospital Professional Office Pavilion 409 Summit St., Ste. 2600, Yankton 668-8601 Podiatry Angie O Connor Clinical Exercise Specialist High intensity interval training or HIIT workouts are very popular. With everyone really strapped for time they ve become a great way to fit in a good workout that burns a lot of calories in a short amount of time. While they have lots of benefits, I think you may have found one of the pitfalls. HIIT workouts really work your body hard and if you re doing them more than three times per week for an extended period of time, you might find that your body needs more recovery time than that. Try mixing in sub-maximal steady state exercise or something that keeps your heart rate moderately elevated for a longer period of time. Instead of 15-20 one-minute intervals with rest periods in between, try running or hop on a rowing machine and keep it at a moderate pace for 30-minutes without stopping. This type of exercise will also help remove the lactic acid build-up from your HIIT workout (likely part of what s making you sore) and prepare you for your next workout. 501 Summit, Yankton 668-8357 Pharmacy 665-8261 Q. What can I do for my hammertoes? A. Christine Wiarda, Hammertoes are a common deformity of the foot D.P.M. that causes the toe bend at the middle joint. When this occurs, there can be pain at the top, as well as the tip of the toe, with walking and with shoe pressure. Hammertoes are hereditary, but can be exaggerated with poor shoes that don t allow for adequate room for the toes. Hammertoes can be treated conservatively with offloading pads and frequent trimming of the calluses that may form at the top or tip of the toe due to pressure. If this fails, then surgical treatment options may be necessary. ammertoes can be a concerning deformity of the foot when it comes to patients H with diabetes as well as those with neuropathy, which is the condition that causes numbness, burning and tingling to the feet. When conservative treatment fails, surgical treatment includes the release of the tendons causing the deformity. If the deformity of the toe is severe enough, a fusion of the bones of the toe or removing the joint may be indicated. The simplest surgical procedure is called a flexor tenotomy. This can be an in office procedure in which the toe is anesthetized and the tendon is released through a small stab incision to the toe. Healing takes less than one week, and there are typically no stiches. The goal of this procedure is to straighten the toe enough to relieve pressure. If this is unsuccessful and calluses continue to occur, then the other procedures (fusion or joint removal) can be pursued in the operating room.
