A principal source of advice, support and information onpsoriasis and psoriatic arthritis

Coal Tar

Coal tar therapy has been used for more than a century in dermatology. It is a topical (applied to the skin) treatment mostly used for acute (short-term) scalp psoriasis. It has anti-inflammatory and anti-scaling properties that are useful in treating chronic plaque psoriasis. Crude coal tar (coal tar BP, a standard formulation) is the most effective form, typically in a concentration of 1% to 10% in a soft paraffin base, although few people with psoriasis can tolerate the smell and mess.

Cleaner extracts of coal tar included in brand-named products are more practicable for home use, but they are less effective and improvement takes longer.

Contact of coal tar products with normal skin is not usually harmful and they can be used for widespread small lesions; however, irritation, contact allergy, and sterile folliculitis (pusfilled spots at the base of the hair) can occur. The milder tar extracts can be used on the face and skin folds. Tar baths and tar shampoos are also helpful and some of these products can be purchased over the counter without a prescription.

Coal tar has also been used in combination with ultraviolet B light in hospitals. It was formulated by American dermatologist William Goeckerman in 1925 and is known as the Goeckerman method. Some hospital day-units still use tar products in the bath prior to treatment.

#interior design fees

Pricing

There is a lot of confusion for the general public as to how interior designers charge for their services. I believe in part the mystery stems from the plethora of entertainment media; never showing an exchange of money for services rendered, how much that would be given the scale and scope of a design project. Another confusing aspect is that depending on the type of interior design service, e.g. remodel, décor, lighting, consulting etc. the fee structures vary.

I will explain here how all the various pricing structures work within the interior design industry, hoping this will eliminate any confusion regarding designer fees.

The various types of fees are:

  • Hourly
  • Contingency fee
  • Flat fee
  • Hourly plus contingency fee
  • Flat fee plus contingency fee
  • Hourly with estimated time plus contingency fee
  • Consultation fee
  • Free Consultation

One item I know people are very confused about is the “contingency fee” or “re-sale charge”. It is quite understandable that this fee will throw the client off a bit as it pertains exclusively to merchandise sold “to the trade only ”. The general public can only purchase goods at retailers so this is usually a foreign concept.

To the trade only is a wholesaler that sells only to those who have a re-sale license. The designer makes purchases from these wholesalers at a wholesale price, generally 40%-50% less and then “re-sells” it to their clients at a mark-up, the designer is therefore the retailer. This is the “contingency fee” or “re-sale charge”. Generally designers mark-up anywhere from 20% 50%. (Note that a retailer also buys from a wholesaler and then marks-up their pricing from 50% -100%.)

Many retailers have been quite adversely effected in terms of profit margins by online sellers and the public who choose to purchase this way. In order to keep up with the online competition many retailers are selling a “discounted” price to designers, generally 5%- 15% off the retail price. This pricing is set to entice designers to bring their customers to purchase their goods as a designer potentially will purchase many times in a year and year after year rather than once in a lifetime from a single retail customer.

The designer price at a retailer gives the designer a bit of a mark-up fee opportunity for their time and payment to manage purchases and is usually not extended to the public. A designer may choose to pass the discount to their client but it is not required, it depends on the designer and how they have developed their business model. The client can of course purchase anything they want online or in a store but they will still be paying retail prices. The advantage of having the designer make the purchase is that the designer will bare the responsibility of tracking the order, be present for the delivery, inspection of the item upon arrival and resolving any issue that may arise (arriving broken, fabric upholstered backwards, finish is terrible, not right color etc.). When the designer makes the purchase, they are the seller to their client and thus responsible for all aspects of that purchase, if the client buys for themselves then the designer is not repsonsible for that purchase. Any mistake or errors are solely the responsibility of the purchaser and seller.

The hourly fee is simply charging the client by the hour for her/his time. This is usually the most appropriate type of compensation for consultancy work.

The Contingency fee only is charging a mark-up or “re-sale” charge on merchandise only, no hourly fee. This is no longer a common practice and usually reserved for very exclusive high-end décor projects.

SharePoint vs. Yammer: 5 Reasons to Have a Second Look at SharePoint 2013 Social

by Simon Langlois on September 4, 2014

Enterprise social networking is a hot topic these days, from how-tos to what-tos and a string of expert studies. The buzz is getting louder and proactive SMBs are looking for the smartest, most efficient ways to hop on the train. I’ve noticed that lately, SharePoint events have had an increasing focus on Yammer benefits and functionalities, which is a testament to Microsoft’s active involvement in the discussion with a strong push for Yammer integration with Office365.

As you might already know, Yammer only comes with Office365 or SharePoint Online subscriptions, effectively restricting organizations running SharePoint on-premises, or those hosted by a third party. For SherWeb, this means – no Yammer, which is no cause for worries because with SharePoint’s out-of-the-box social features, you have all that is needed to go social. So what’s holding you back? Let’s detangle some of the misgivings and misconceptions surrounding the SharePoint vs. Yammer debate.

1 Well, if Microsoft says Yammer

I have yet to find a solid argument that would convince me to pick Yammer over SharePoint 2013. It’s been months since the integration of Yammer and SharePoint Online and in that time we’ve seen a couple of features added but nothing earth shattering. Yammer’s popularity appears to be based not on the quality of the product but rather on the overarching influence of the tech giant Microsoft. Here’s the main argument I hear these days, “Well if that’s where Microsoft is going, that’s where we need to go .” Don’t get me wrong, both have their individual shortcomings, but at the end of the day, Yammer and SharePoint 2013 have a lot more similarities than Microsoft would like us to believe. Although buying Yammer was a smart business move, it appears that it was not motivated by the allure of innovative technologies or edgy features. Microsoft clearly viewed this acquisition as a mean to eliminate its biggest enterprise social threat, much like they did with Skype some time ago.

2 All the enterprise social you need is in SharePoint

3 Less confusion

Some Microsoft advocates are sold on Yammer because of its user-friendliness. SharePoint 2013 social users for their part say that their pick requires little to no training because it is so much like the familiar and intuitive Facebook and Twitter interfaces. While many software are designed to help employees work more efficiently, when a company increases the number of tools they use, there is bound to be a decrease in efficiency, no matter how easy to use the new tool might be. The simpler the process the better the outcome; that’s why it is simpler to stick to SharePoint alone rather than to use SharePoint with Yammer tagged onto it. This also applies to people working with a number of mobile devices. They don’t want, or need for that matter, to juggle between a slew of apps. Instead, they can get it all done in one spot with SharePoint 2013.

4 The compliance challenges posed by enterprise social networking

Small and big companies alike have heaps of documents to manage on a daily basis, often requiring the collaboration of a number of employees. Those dealing with sensitive data, be it legal, financial, medical or other, have the additional concern of abiding with legislated standards such as HIPAA, SOX and GLBA. One of the first criteria for data safety is to ensure that employees are actually using the safe technology that is at their disposal. The second is to have access to administration functionalities to handle the massive amounts of data produced. Here’s the challenge that enterprise social networking platforms face. They strive to make communication and collaboration effortless, user-friendly and intuitive while remaining compliant with specific regulations concerning sensitive data handling. Although most pro-Microsoft evangelists don’t agree, when it comes to adoption, SharePoint and Yammer are in the same class, however document sharing and collaboration is where they differ the most. Many of the document management features enjoyed by SharePoint users such as co-authoring, alerts, check-ins outs, or drags and drops are not available on Yammer. The same goes for control content approval, workflows, user-defined metadata, eDiscovery and end-user retention. This means that to be compliant using Yammer, you should deny direct document sharing and force employees to only exchange links from documents that are located in SharePoint.

5 Community

Community contribution is essential when it comes to driving engagement and productivity. Ultimately, the biggest difference between Yammer and SharePoint social is this community concept which in my opinion, is Yammer’s biggest flaw. Contribution is arguably the best way to leverage collective wisdom; people join communities because they have precious expertise to gain or to share. Speaking to others is known to stimulate employee engagement because people tend to join communities not only for professional reasons but also out of personal interest. Yammer does offer the possibility to form groups based specific topics, however it lacks the recurring appeal of SharePoint 2013’s reward concept.

So Yammer only comes with Office365 or SharePoint Online subscriptions, well… what of it? SharePoint 2013’s out-of-the-box solution can meet all your enterprise social networking needs with an easy to use collaboration interface that s compliant with sensitive data regulations. And it offers a sharp productivity-boosting community concept to boot. In other words if you want a business that’s aligned with the enterprise social movement, Yammer is OK, but SharePoint is AWESOME!

When to consider student loan refinance alternatives

You ll use federal loan repayment programs

When you refinance a federal student loan, a lender pays it off and issues you a new, private loan. That means you can’t repay the refinanced loan on an income-driven repayment plan. postpone payments using deferment or forbearance. or get loan forgiveness for working in public service. Only refinance your federal loans if you don’t plan to take advantage of these programs.

You don t meet the requirements

At a minimum, lenders want to see that you have a stable job and a steady income, that you use credit responsibly and that you’ve been in the workforce for a little while. Some lenders also prefer customers who have graduate degrees, especially if you have a lot of debt. This means refinancing isn’t an option for graduates who are struggling to pay their student loan bills.
