What is Urinary Tract Infection?
A urinary tract infection (UTI) is a bacterial infection that affects part of the urinary tract. When it affects the lower urinary tract it is known as a simple cystitis (a bladder infection) and when it affects the upper urinary tract it is known as pyelonephritis (a kidney infection). Symptoms from a lower urinary tract include painful urination and either frequent urination or urge to urinate (or both), while those of pyelonephritis include fever andflank pain in addition to the symptoms of a lower UTI. In the elderly and the very young, symptoms may be vague or non specific. The main causal agent of both types is Escherichia coli, however other bacteria, viruses or fungi may rarely be the cause.

Can I get HIV from Cunnilingus?
Yes. Cunnilingus, oral sex on a woman, is considered "possibly unsafe" without a latex or plastic barrier. If the woman has her period or a vaginal infection, it's considered "unsafe." "Possibly unsafe" activities have a smaller chance of transmitting HIV than behaviors in the "unsafe" category (which generally involve semen or blood coming into contact with mucous membranes in the rectum, vagina, or mouth). "Possibly unsafe" activities do, however, carry a risk of HIV (and STD) transmission.

An ACL tear is most often a sports-related injury. ACL tears can also
occur during rough play, mover vehicle collisions, falls, and
work-related injuries. About 80% of sports-related ACL tears are
"non-contact" injuries. This means that the injury occurs without the
contact of another athlete, such as a tackle in football. Most often ACL
tears occur when pivoting or landing from a jump. The knee gives-out
from under the athlete when the ACL is torn.

BSE has a long incubation period, about 30 months to 8 years, usually affecting adult cattle at a peak age onset of four to five years, all breeds being equally susceptible. In the United Kingdom, the country worst affected, more than 180,000 cattle have been infected and 4.4 million slaughtered during the eradication program.
