Make-up artist left with agonizing margarita burn after hand-squeezing 10 limes

A make-up artist woke up screaming in pain from a ‘margarita burn’ the day after squeezing 18 limes, then washing her hands and lying in the sun. Amber Prepchuk, of Edmonton in Canada, brought ingredients to make cocktails for a week in a cabin by the lake with her girlfriends in mid-June. She was in the kitchen squeezing about 10 limes before she found a lime squeezer, finished off the job, rinsed her hands in water, and went outside to enjoy the fruits of her labor, sunbathing, swimming and hanging out. Two days later, on June 14, she woke in agony – not from a hangover, from blistering burns on her hands. ‘It felt like my skin was being cooked from the inside out. Any time I moved my fingers the skin would pull. The only time it didn’t hurt was when I was sleeping.’ ‘It was excruciating’: Amber Prepchuk, a make-up artist, suffered blistering burns on her hands after squeezing limes before going in the sun Three weeks later, her hand scars are still severe. Other parts of her body that were splattered with sprinklings of lime juice are also damaged – including two hand-shaped marks on her back, where she believes she placed...

First Alert Forecast: Watching for next cold front on Friday

LAKE CHARLES, La. (KPLC) – Temperatures remaining warm this afternoon in the upper 70s topping out near 80 degrees thanks to plenty of sunshine. A few clouds have developed thanks to southern flow which has increased the dewpoint and is slowly bringing back the humidity. Fog tonight isn’t expected to be a problem especially because of southern winds remaining all night. This is going to keep temperatures warmer though in the low 60s to upper 50s farther inland. Starting off tomorrow on the warmer side in the low 60s to upper 50s and warming nicely through the afternoon to near 80 degrees once again. We’ll see those southern winds persist continuing to increase the dewpoint. Clouds also move in from the west ahead of our next cold front. Rain chances remain low tomorrow as the bulk of the rain holds off until Friday. Expect much of the same as today with more cloud cover! Clouds stick around overnight keeping lows warmer in the mid 60s. We’ll start off Friday with a small chance for a hit or miss shower and see that chance steadily increase through the day as our next cold front moves through during the afternoon hours. This cold front does bring with it the chance for seve...

The Hair Dryer Behind Amal Clooney’s Signature Blowout Is More Than $50 Off Right Now

Our mental Pinterest board of waves we wish we could master is filled entirely with pictures of Amal Clooney. Can you blame us? The trophy husband-having barrister’s head of hair could make a Disney princess insecure. But rather than stewing in hair envy, there’s a totally achievable solution we can reach for — and it’s on sale. Clooney’s hair stylist, Rod Ortega, revealed that the secret behind her iconic curls is this T3 Cura Luxe Hair Dryer. “It’s my go-to for the smoothing effect and the shine,” Ortega told InStyle. “The ion air in the dryer is the key factor in keeping the body, but smoothing the texture.” The dryer retails for $285 — a not-uncommon price point for a luxury hair tool, especially one that’s outfitted with this level of technology. But today, we’re all out of excuses for not yet investing in one: Thanks to a generous pre-Black Friday deal running on Amazon, the price is down to $230. It’s unclear how long this discount will last, so if saving $55 on Amal’s secret weapon is as tempting to you as it is to us, you’ll want to make your move soon. Shop what Ortega calls “the number one most important tool” for channeling Amal Clooney’s gravity-defying waves on sa...

Review: Barbed Wire Reef in Denver plays with wild game

Colorado is home to its fair share of wildlife — elk, deer, bison, bears, rattlesnakes. The list is long. You’ll find many of them (bears not included) on the menu at 10-month-old Barbed Wire Reef. The Berkeley restaurant, which originated as a bright orange food truck back in 2011, is known for its exotic surf-and-turf-inspired menu. Beyond the locals, owner Rico Aragon’s menu features a selection of far-flung wild game, such as kangaroo, wild boar and alligator, plus an array of seafood. While beloved joints such as Biker Jim’s Gourmet Dogs and the Buckhorn Exchange have been satisfying Denverites’ palates for unusual bites for, well, forever now, Barbed Wire’s laid-back, coastal vibe adds something new to those offerings. (If we’ve learned anything from the proliferation of poke restaurants, it’s that there’s room for quite a few spots within the same genre in this town.) Star Rating Guide: Ratings range from zero to four stars. Zero is poor. One star, satisfactory. Two stars, good. Three stars, very good. Four stars, excellent. Barbed Wire’s brick-and-mortar, which took over a former auto shop, brings some color — quite literally, with its blue and red brick exterior — and p...

Stuttgart Airport introduced four fully electric baggage and cargo tractors for fast, quiet and emission-free cargo handling.

Goldhofer’s airport technology experts were closely involved in the planning, organization and installation of the necessary charging infrastructure. “We are delighted that the power, efficiency and sustainability of our high-performance tow tractors are helping Stuttgart Airport to achieve its ambitious climate targets.

Düsseldorf, Germany — K 2019 was a showplace for liquid silicone rubber, with companies highlighting new machinery, materials, tooling, molding and simulation technologies. As a world premiere, Schwertberg, Austria-based injection molding machinery producer Engel Austria GmbH ran an entirely license-free process applying an LSR gasket to both sides of a 65 percent zirconium/16 percent copper content metallic glass alloy frame. First, a 120-metric-ton Engel Victory AMM amorphous metal molding machine molded 100 grams shot weight of Amloy Vitreloy 105 Zr/Cu/Ni/Ti/Al alloy from Hanau, Germany-based Heraeus Holding GmbH.

Three businesses that specialize in products made from recycled tires will receive grants totaling more than

Three businesses that specialize in products made from recycled tires will receive grants totaling more than $1.2 million to expand their markets and keep more of the material out of California landfills. The Tire Incentive Program (TIP), managed by the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle), is a competitive pilot program created to expand commercial demand for products derived from recycled tires. TIP grants are awarded to eligible manufacturers to competitively price and market their products with the goal of increasing their market share, CalRecycle says. “When we make products out of recycled tires rather than new material, we’re not only keeping tires out of the landfill, we’re also using less energy to create those products than we would need to use to extract virgin material,” says CalRecycle Director Scott Smithline. “These innovative products are all tested for quality, and they don’t hit the market until they’re at least as high-quality as similar products made from traditional material.” TIP grants were awarded to United Sports Surfacing of America Inc. ($294,118), U.S. Rubber Recycling ($498,116) and Van Duerr Industries Inc., dba Saf...
