Prolonged sun exposure increases chance of skin cancer

With Southern California’s sunny climate, it’s no wonder people enjoy spending time outdoors with family and friends visiting the beach, walking, hiking, and camping.

However, did you know that spending too much time in the sun and its harmful ultraviolet, or UV, rays can cause skin cancer, a potentially deadly disease?

“It’s important to know that regardless of your gender and race, you need to protect your skin from UV radiation to lessen your risk of skin cancer,” said Evette Ramsay, MD, a dermatologist with Kaiser Permanente in Baldwin Park.

“Using sunscreen with a sun protection factor of 30 or higher is advisable, and it should be reapplied as needed, including every 1 to 2 hours when in the water or when perspiring. However, using sunscreen alone isn’t always enough during prolonged sun exposure. That’s why you also should consider taking other steps to protect yourself.”

Protecting your skin

Dr. Ramsay offered the following tips to lessen your chance of getting skin cancer:

  • Avoid the sun during its peak hours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Understand that sand, water, and snow can reflect 85% of the sun’s rays.
  • To protect your eyes, wear sunglasses capable of blocking 99% of UVA and UVB radiation.
  • When possible, wear loose-fitting, long-sleeved clothing to cover much of your skin.
  • Wear clothing specially designed to protect against UV radiation, indicated by a label stating its UPF, or Ultraviolet Protection Factor, rating.
  • Because their skin is more sensitive, completely shield the skin of babies younger than 6 months from the sun.

“It may not be possible to completely prevent skin cancer, but taking these precautions will help,” Dr. Ramsay said. “Also, keep an eye on new spots or growths on your skin as they could be early signs of skin cancer. With early detection, skin cancer can be treated more easily. That’s why it’s important to regularly have your skin checked by a doctor.”

Elon Musk wants humans to make it to Mars. With his company SpaceX at his back, he’s pushed forward with some incredibly bold claims about what is possible for mankind on the Red Planet. He’s shown off concepts for Mars settlements and even called out scientists who say climate engineering on the planet is impossible.

Now, in an interview with HBO’s Axios, Musk doubles down on one of the more off-the-wall claims he’s made during his years in the spotlight. Mars, he says, will be his eventual home, and he estimates his odds of moving to the planet at a generous 70%.

Yvonne’s Cheerful Bedroom

Yvonne Whelan: For this cheerful, modern bedroom, I started with a warm earthy Antique French floor in Bordeaux and a neutral wall color paired with Beauti-Tone’s Color of the Year, Tropic of Conversation. I would use this bold color to paint a sliding barn door for a stunning feature. Furniture and accessories in bold, black and white patterns give the space a very modern feel.

Jacklynn Little: My inspiration started with the Color of the Year from Beauti-tone called Tropic Of Conversation and a beautiful French Antique floor in Bordeaux. I added hot pink to both balance out the bright orange and give the room a bold look. The sofa is a neutral shade of cream which gives great contrast to the wall color. Pillows in orange and pink fabrics in a variety of patterns will make this room both contemporary and fun to live in. A luxurious rug pulls together all the colors in the room and the gold coffee table and side tables give the look an elegant feel.- Click here for more information and sources.

Here’s your once-in-a-lifetime chance to own a Moon rock

We’re all pretty familiar with the Moon from a very young age. It’s usually one of the first topics talked about in our earliest science classes in school, and we can see it most nights just by gazing skyward. But actually holding a piece of it in your hand is something that only a privileged few can claim they’ve done.

Now, a trio of Moon pieces is hitting the Sotheby’s auction block that will offer some lucky person the chance to own a piece of Earth’s largest natural satellite — as long as their pockets are deep enough.

Why Your Credit Cards May Deserve A Second Chance

(AP Photo)

While paying off $ 1,700 in credit card debt in 2014, Jamie Griffin cut up his card. To tackle the remaining $ 90,000 in student loans he and his wife carried, he read personal finance experts’ tips and turned to cash and a spreadsheet to budget. Now that most of their debt is paid off, he’s giving credit cards a cautious second chance.

Griffin has come to see credit cards as a way that he and his wife, Jenna, who are both teachers, can potentially defray the costs of travel. Instead of immediately applying for a travel credit card, though, the 31-year-old from Duluth, Minnesota, let his wife’s longtime rewards credit card lead the way as they transitioned from using cash to credit for most purchases.

“We wanted to practice to make sure we could actually do it rather than reverting back to our old spending habits of just swiping a card because we could,” Jamie Griffin says. “We haven’t had to pay any interest. We haven’t had any late payments.”

If you, too, have developed new spending habits — and potentially higher credit scores — since paying off debt, you might be a good fit for rewards credit cards that earn cash back for your emergency fund or miles for a vacation. Here are factors to consider.

REWARDS CAN HELP WITH EXPENSES

Rewards credit cards generally require a credit score of 690 or higher. They can earn cash back, points or airline miles in specific categories or on everyday spending. Rewards rates vary by card and some also offer sign-up bonuses with introductory zero percent interest rates for new cardholders.

Depending on the card, rewards can be redeemed for things like cash, statement credit, travel, gift cards or merchandise — all of which can help with household expenses, as long as you pay credit card bills in full every month to avoid interest charges.

Since early 2017, the Griffins have collected 38,000 points — that’s over $ 300 in cash back. They redeemed 20,000 points (about $ 200) into their bank account earlier this summer.

YOUR CREDIT MAY DEPEND ON IT

Paying off debt is a worthy goal. But if you later stop using a credit card, it can hurt your credit scores. That’s because credit utilization and length of credit history are key factors in the calculation of those scores, according to FICO.

Say you were to close an older high-limit credit card after paying it off — or that you use the card so infrequently that the issuer ends up closing the account for you. Shutting down the account would not only decrease your amount of total available credit; you would also lose the card’s account history.

Another factor in your credit scores is credit mix — the combination of different kinds of credit accounts. A healthy credit mix might include a mortgage or car loans, for example, and also credit cards.

“If you have a healthy mix of credit, and you’re using them wisely, and you have a good history, that should reflect in your credit score,” says Jeffrey Arevalo, financial wellness expert at GreenPath, a credit counseling agency.

Of course, without piles of cash on hand, you’ll need good credit if you want to qualify for a home or car loan at the lowest interest rates. Keeping a credit card active and using it responsibly is an easy way to maintain good credit.

But if the temptation to overspend is too great, closing a credit card account may be the way to go, Arevalo says.

CREDIT CARDS CAN HELP YOU PLAN

Before moving most of their expenses to credit, Jenna Griffin asked the issuer about benefits for longtime customers. The couple secured a six-month safety net with a zero percent interest rate that they didn’t have to use.

Recently, the couple was approved for a credit card that earns miles to help them save money on travel expenses. Jamie Griffin continues tracking all of their expenses on his spreadsheet.

If you’re ready to give credit cards a second chance, here’s how to use a rewards credit card and maintain good credit:

– Pay your bill in full and on time every month.

– Don’t stray from your budget just to earn credit card rewards.

– Keep charges below 30% of your available credit.

– Use your credit card as a budgeting tool to track your spending and review your purchases.

– Keep your no-annual-fee accounts open and active to avoid hurting your credit score.
