Shoe empire built on passion for footwear

If you were ever told that you are too young to start your own business, you may want to take pointers from one of the newest Bahamian entrepreneurs, 22 year-old Maritza Turnquest.
Maritza had a passion to be an entrepreneur. She coupled this with her passion for shoes — and the Shoe Empire was born.
During the store’s grand opening at the beginning of this month, Maritza reflected on the inspiration that spurred her to open Nassau’s newest shoe store. “My inspiration came from my dad, who is a successful entrepreneur and merchant,” she told Guardian Business. “As a child I always wanted to be like him.” Her dad now owns a chain ...

Dealing with Tailor's bunion

Most people have heard of or seen a bunion at some time on the foot. When there is a bump on the outer side of the foot near the little toe, it is a Tailor's bunion. It is also called a bunionette. This foot deformity received its name centuries ago, when tailors sat cross-legged all day with their feet rubbing on the ground, which led them developing a painful bump at the side of the little toe.
A Tailor's bunion is an enlargement of the head of the long bone behind the little toe. This produces a pressure area and callus at the bottom of the fifth toe.

Causes
Tailor's bunion is caused by inherited faulty mechanical structure of the foot. Constant pressure causes changes in the bony shape of the foot, resulting in the development of the enlargement. The fifth metatarsal bone starts to protrude outward, while the little toe moves inward. This shift creates a bump on the outside of the foot that becomes irritated whenever a shoe presses against it. Sometimes a Tailor's bunion is an outgrowth of bone on the side of the fifth metatarsal head. Regardless of the cause, the symptoms of a Tailor's bunion are usually aggravated by wearing shoes that are too tight in the toe, producing constant rubbing and pressure.

Symptoms
The symptoms of tailor's bunions include redness, swelling, and pain at the outer side of the foot. These symptoms occur when wearing shoes that rub against the bump, irritating the soft tissues underneath the skin and producing inflammation. Constant rubbing and pressure on the skin forms a callus and the tissues under the skin also grow thicker. Both the thick callus and the thick soft tissues under it are irritated and painful.

Diagnosis
Tailor's bunion is easily diagnosed on physical examination.

However, x-rays may be ordered to help the podiatrist determine the cause and extent of the deformity and will help if surgery is necessary later.

Non-surgical treatment
Initial treatment for a Tailor's bunion begins with non-surgical therapies. Your podiatrist may select one or more of the following:
o Shoe modifications. Choose to wear shoes that have a wide toe box, and avoid those with pointed toes or high heels.
o Remove the callus. For pain relief, the podiatrist can also remove some of the built-up callus and hard skin in the area. This is an important step to prevent pain and even ulcers from developing at the site of the Tailor's bunion.
o Padding. Bunionette pads can be placed over the area to help reduce pain.
o Oral medications. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), may help relieve the pain and inflammation.
o Icing. An ice pack may also be applied to reduce pain and inflammation.
o Injection therapy. Injections of corticosteroid may be used to treat the inflamed tissue around the joint.
o Orthotic devices. In some cases, custom orthotics devices may be provided by the foot and ankle surgeon.

Surgery
Surgery is often considered when the pain continues regardless of treatment efforts. Based on the extent of the deformity, a corrective surgical procedure will be selected. The podiatrist will take into consideration the extent of the deformity based on the x-ray findings, the age, the activity level, and other factors. Surgery usually involves removing the prominence of bone underneath the bunion to relieve pressure. Before deciding on the procedure extra bone is removed and the fifth toe and joint is straightened. The recovery time after surgery, will vary, depending on the procedure or procedures performed.

A grand welcoming for Pinder and Brown

There are two things the executives and athletes in the governing body for track and field in the country can now brag about - a pair of medals from the indoor championships and being the first association to host a reception at the new national Thomas A. Robinson National Stadium.
Silver medalist Demetrius Pinder and bronze medalist Chris Brown in the 400 meters (m) at the International Association of Athletic Federations (IAAF) World Indoor Championships returned home to a warm welcome on Saturday. The Bahamas Association of Athletic Associations (BAAA) in conjunction with the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture hosted the quartermilers to a reception, which was well attended by Pinder and Brown's family. Also on hand were the Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture Charles Maynard, Director of Sports Tim Munnings,
Permanent Secretary Archie Nairn and members of this year's CARIFTA team.
Running in his first indoor championships on the professional level, Pinder captured a silver medal leaving the defending champion of the event, Brown to settle for third. The Freeport native's time was 45.34 and Brown stopped the clock at 45.90. Both were season's best performances for Pinder and Brown. The winning time was 45.11 turned in by Nery Brenes. The Bahamas placed 16th overall, tied with Belarus, with two medals - a silver and bronze. The championships were staged in Istanbul, Turkey, March 9-11.
"I am so happy to be a silver medalist in my first world games," said Pinder. "Chris Brown [has] paved the way for me and if it wasn't for him I would not have believed. He is just a great, great leader he took me into his arms and showed me the way. We were never rivals. Everything was just team. We just had to do what we had to do at the end of the day. I want to give thanks to Chris Brown."
Two years ago, in Doha, Qatar, Brown won the event with 45.96. If he had ran that time this year, he would have finished fourth. It was the exact time turned in by Tabarie Henry of the U.S. Virgin Islands, the fourth place finisher. Also in the race were Pavel Maslak and Kirani James who were fifth and sixth respectively, with times of 46.19 and 46.21.
The two were expected to run a leg in the 4x400m, but The Bahamas did not field a team since the finals of the men's open 400m was shortly before the relay. As a result, Pinder and Brown are promising to bring home an individual and relay medal from the upcoming Olympic Games.
Brown, who thanked the Lord for giving him the strength and power to continue, described his career as a long journey and said "It is not over yet and no, it is not my last year." He and Pinder thanked God and the BAAA for hosting the event as well as the ministry for their support.
"I was basically still doing off-season training around the time of the indoor championships," said Brown. "I just stepped back onto the track about two weeks ago. A lot of people don't know that I didn't prepare for it (the championships) like I did last year. So my main focus is London 2012.
"I am looking forward to bringing the medal home, individual and 4x400m. I know that I had a job to do, but no one really knew that I was not in spikes today; I am still not in spikes. By then I will definitely be ready to set the track on fire."
Brown will lace-up in his spike shoes two weeks before the Penn Relays, April 26-28. The Olympic Games, set for London, UK, is July 27-August 12.
Maynard, who said he is a big fan of Chris Brown, and congratulated Pinder on his first indoor win, encouraged Bahamians to support the athletes.
He said: "I watched him on television over the years like so many other Bahamians have, and I have always been impressed with his spirit. He has always been somebody who has had that unstoppable spirit like you can do anything. We call him 'Fireman', but it should be 'super-duper fireman'. He's that kind of fellow. You never know what to expect when he lines up on the track and that is something that is very important.
"The Bahamian society need to learn to support our athletes. It is going to come the day, very soon, when we will hold every single club track meet, every single high school meet here at the national stadium with 15,000 people present. We had the opening ceremony for the facility and we got 15,000 plus people in here. That has to be the standard going forward and people are going to have to be willing to pay money to watch our athletes perform."
The outdoor meet for professional athletes will officially open up in May.
