Ruby Rose's House Invaded by Venomous Spiders

Ruby Rose thinks her house is being invaded by black widow spiders.
The 'Orange is the New Black' star - who was born and raised in Australia - was stunned to see a highly venomous creepy crawly with a red back, most commonly talked about in her native country, on her doorstep at her home in Los Angeles.
Taking to her Twitter account, the 31-year-old actress uploaded a photograph of the spider and asked her fans whether the black insect was the deadly black widow.
She said: "I always thought cali spiders were kinda cute and like Hollywood versions of Aussie spiders then I saw this and now I'm shook. Black widow?"
Although she seemed pretty spooked by the trespasser, Ruby - who has two dogs called Chance and Ru - tried to make light of the situation by joking that she doesn't need anymore animals - especially spiders - to sponge off her and eat her food.
She teased: "I already have dogs that scam food, accommodation and don't even tidy up or help with dishes I don't need a bunch of free-loading spiders
"Googles *can you train a black widow spider to do dishes... There are 3 outside my house.. I'm canceling my week. (sic)"
Black widows are found in climates with mild temperatures, such as the United States, southern Europe and Asia, Australia, Africa, and much of South America.
They primarily exist in the South and West of the US and are usually found in dark, dry shelters such as barns, garages, basements and outdoor toilets.
Although they are deemed the most venomous spider in North America - their venom is thought to be 15 times stronger than a rattlesnake's - they only bite humans when disturbed and, although it's rare that the bite will lead to death, the venom can cause muscle aches, nausea, and paralysis of the diaphragm.

This Amazing Device Will Help Women Keep Their Hair During Chemotherapy

An unfortunate side effect of chemotherapy treatment is hair loss. Though it is , chemotherapy can also result in the damage of regularly functioning cells, including hair follicles. Losing the strands you've grown and loved your entire life can take a major emotional toll.
However, there is a hopeful new development. The Food and Drug Administration has given market clearance to Sweden's , a device designed to reduce the activity of hair follicles during chemotherapy in breast cancer patients.
The neoprene cap is placed on patients' heads before, during, and after treatment. This connects to a computer-controlled cooling unit with near-freezing temperatures, which reduce blood flow in the scalp. The cap also slows down division of new cells to prevent further damage from continued treatment. By regulating the behavior and activity of the follicles, the DigniCap can cut back on the amount of damage done to healthy hair cells during chemotherapy, in turn decreasing hair loss.

The innovative system is the first of its kind to be FDA approved. Researchers believe that the cooling cap can have a great emotional impact in women undergoing treatment. "We are pleased to see a product for breast cancer patients that can minimize chemotherapy-induced hair loss and contribute to the quality of life of these individuals," said William Maisel, MD, in an .
In a trial performed on 122 women with stage one or stage two cancer, over 66 percent of participants reported losing less than 50 percent of their hair over the course of one month. Participant Deborah Cohen noted that being able to keep her mane during treatment had a huge impact on the way she was treated by loved ones and strangers. "I think it helped my children cope with my diagnosis, first and foremost, because they were able to look at me and not see me as someone who was sick," she .
In the coming months, the DigniCap will be made available in chemotherapy treatment centers around the country. The distribution of this device marks an incredible step in the development of cancer treatment. With this important reinforcement of their confidence, patients can feel even stronger and more brave during their recovery. More women can now go into recovery without the fear of losing their hair, leaving them able to focus on the progression of their health.
