The Gunners, who retained the FA Cup last May, won the Asia Cup in Singapore, the Emirates Cup at home and then the Community Shield, when manager Arsene Wenger beat Chelsea rival Jose Mourinho for the first time in 14 encounters with his rival.The Gunners are at home on the opening day for the fourth year in a row. But they do not boast an impressive recent opening-day record; last season’s 2-1 win at home to Crystal Palace was their first victory in the first game of the season since 2009, when they won 6-1 at Everton.West Ham, meanwhile, have already been busy under new boss Slaven Bilic, who replaced Sam Allardyce during the summer. On Thursday, the Hammers were in Europa League action, their sixth game of the competition.Bilic, who spent three years at West Ham as a player, is a popular choice amongst Hammers fans but he is without the injured Andy Carroll and Enner Valencia while Carl Jenkinson, signed on a second season’s loan from Arsenal, is ineligible to face his parent club.Arsenal will continue with Petr Cech, signed from Champions Chelsea at the age of 33. The keeper will wear the number 33 and has already impressed as the Gunners’ custodian.The Gunners hold the upper hand over their London rivals; they have won their last nine games in the league against West Ham and are unbeaten in their last 14 (winning 14 and drawing two). Indeed, West Ham last beat Arsenal in April 2007 at the Emirates Stadium.last_img read more

Be careful before getting a tattoo or piercing

first_imgWhile tattoos and body piercings are an increasingly popular form of self-expression. It is important for young people to carefully weigh the consequences and potential risks associated with such body modifications, suggests a clinical report by the American Academy of Paediatrics (AAP). “In most cases, teens just enjoy the look of the tattoo or piercing, but we do advise them to talk any decision over with their parents or another adult first,” said David Levine, co-author and professor at Morehouse School of Medicine in Georgia, US.”They may not realise how expensive it is to remove a tattoo, or how a piercing on your tongue might result in a chipped tooth,” Levine added, in the recommendations published in the journal Paediatrics.The recommendations stated that while societal acceptance of tattoos and piercings has increased, there may still be repercussions. This includes losing out on job opportunity as well as suffering infections. Further, before getting a tattoo or piercing, one should make sure that the salon is sterile, clean and reputable. The facility should also be regulated by the government and should provide clients with information on how to care for the area that has been tattooed or pierced afterward, the researchers emphasised. “Reputable tattoo parlours and piercing salons should provide a long list of dos and don’ts on how to care for the area that was worked on, and what signs might indicate a problem,” said lead author Cora C. Breuner, chair of the AAP Committee on Adolescence. Moreover, someone considering a tattoo should make sure that their immunisations are up to date and that they are not taking any medication that compromises their immunity in any caondition, the report said.last_img read more
