Uninstall the program and reboot the computer to see if the feedback stops, if yes! re-install Skype to see if that will solve the problem.

Taking Care of your Kid's Ears

Ears aren't very high maintenence but there some things you should know about ear care that will help ensure healthy, happy ears.

What's the story with earwax?
Do you need to clean it out or should you leave it alone? Alot of kids don't realize that earwax is really helpful as it is there to protect the ear.
In general ear wax doesn't need removing as it makes it's own way to the entrance of the ear and comes out by itself.
although ear buds are really popular, they are actually damaging to the ear as it pushes the wax deeper in and can damdage the ear drum.
So don't stick anything small in your kids' ears to clean out the wax. Let it just do it's own thing and come out when it's ready.
Is swimming a problem for ears?
Water and ears are generally ok but there is a condition called swimmer's ear. It's basically an infection in the outer ear that is caused by swimming water getting stuck in the ear canal.
Usually ear drops will help sort it out quickly. If you have a problem with persistant ear infections you can buy special ear plugs that help keep the water out while you're swimming.
Pierced Ears - Is there anything special that I need to do for them?
When you get your ears pierced you need to follow the instructions from the salon and not remove the earings for up to 6 weeks, otherwise the hole might close up.
Pierced ears can easily get infected, so use an alchohol rub if you start to see any redness or sores.
If it gets very badly infected you may need an anti biotic cream but don't panic, it's very common and should clear up quickly.
Be Well.

How long do ear piercings take to heal?

It depends where on the ear you mean. If you are talking about regular ear lobe piercing, then you can expect on a healing time of 4 to 6 weeks and I wouldn't take out your earrings before that time.

For ear cartilage piercings, it can take anywhere from 4 months to 1 year to heal and is reported to be very painful.

How many piercings can you fit in to your ear lobe? My mum says that one is enough and more than that will cause problems.

Piercings are very much a matter of taste. Whilst one hole in the ear lobe was always the more traditional norm, it has become increasingly popular to have multiple piercings and people don't just stick to the ear lobe but also use the cartilage to add studs etc.

But in theory you can fit 3 holes in the ear lobe as it's the softest and biggest part of the ear.

Maytag Atlantis loud screech when it brakes the spin cycle.

Hi Scott,
The brake has dust on it from wear. It is at the base of the machine inside the center were the base of the gear case rests. The brake is easy to fix with one catch. There is a tension spring hold it together, never mind the 5/16 hex screws attaching it, there is 200 pounds of pressure there.
Parts 16 to 23 are causing your problem. You need parts 35-2948, 21001161 and 35-2018 which are numbers 21, 22 and 23. While your there tell them you need a spring compressor for this job. Make sure after removing 24 that the compressor is fitted to the shaft and that it lines up to the notch in the shaft so your retention pin holds the spring until you can loosen the stator(23) from the brake, 22.

Washer make a loud squeak when the spinning stops

its the brake, just as long as it stops, dont worry about it, made a web page that has pics on how to replace the spin bearing on the maytag atlantis washer, after searching the net on how to, finding the manual, not explanatory, i decided to make this a simple 1 page web site, with lots of pictures, i hope this can help someone else in doing this job. since it would cost too much money for a repairman to do the job, better to buy a new one instead, i tackled the job. since it basically takes apart the whole machine, it might help others even if they dont have the spin bearing problem but other parts to replace,
