“A very sad evening. 100 homes were set on fire, the county fire crew responded and the blaze was brought under control.

The eye is the screen: an Israeli startup is developing smart glasses to replace smartphones https://see-concept.com/the-eye-is-the-screen-an-israeli-startup-is-developing-smart-glasses-to-replace-smartphones/ Mon, 19 Sep 2022 19:47:45 +0000 https://see-concept.com/the-eye-is-the-screen-an-israeli-startup-is-developing-smart-glasses-to-replace-smartphones/

Unlike Google Glass, this innovative new product projects images directly onto the retina of the eye

An Israeli startup has developed smart glasses that project images directly onto the eye’s retina.

Modi’in-based company Eyejets says its new device – dubbed EyeVis (EV) – will soon replace smartphones.

Unlike other competitors in the smart glasses category currently available, such as Google Glass, the EV uses a projection system called a Virtual Retinal Display (VRD), which projects images or content generated by a computer, TV or a smartphone, directly on the wearer’s eye rather than on a screen.

The technology is coupled with a proprietary eye tracking unit that allows the projection to be pinpointed precisely to the center of a person’s field of vision based on their eye movements.

According to EyeJets CEO Col. (res.) Edu Strul, the device is unlike any other available on the market today.

“For most companies that have developed smart glasses or augmented reality glasses, the image or display is on the lens,” Strul told The Media Line. “We have developed eye tracking that follows the movement of your eyes. This means that if you are watching a movie, you will see it very well because the projection is directly in the center of the field of vision all the time. No one did [before].”

Strul is an aerospace engineer who previously served as head of the aircraft engineering and acquisition programs department in the Israeli Air Force.

EyeJet was founded by both Strul and Dr. Joshua Gur, who serves as Chief Technology Officer and has 40 years of experience in optical technology. The duo were then joined by Chief Medical Officer Dr. Isaac Lipshitz, an eye surgeon who specializes in the field of intraocular optics and intraocular implantable devices.

While other companies in the past have successfully developed VRD-based systems, projected images would either be off-center or blurry due to a lack of eye movement tracking capabilities. The new patented EyeJets technology corrects this shortcoming.

The EyeVis, which the startup hopes to launch by the end of next year, will offer a range of smartphone features, including sound, camera options and a virtual keyboard that will allow users to type. It will also be compatible with existing smartphone apps.

The smart glasses use a miniaturized array of low-intensity lasers, which the company says are safe for everyday use.

“When we presented it to the Israel Innovation Authority, the first question was about safety,” Strul said, adding that the new device meets safety standards established by studies on VRD lasers that have been previously conducted by the US military.

The EyeVis keeps users’ peripheral vision active so they can always see what’s going on in the real world. Additionally, the size and transparency of the image projected onto the retina can be adjusted, Strul said. People requiring regular glasses will also be able to wear the smart glasses with a prescription if necessary.

VRD is not a new concept. The basis of the technology was originally invented by the Nippon Electric Company in the 1980s and later developed at the University of Washington in the early 1990s. However, VRD has so far mainly seen applications in the fields medical and military.

Some tech giants have also attempted to launch VRD-based smart glasses in recent years. In 2018, for example, Intel announced Vaunt, smart glasses designed to look like conventional glasses. The firm abandoned the project after only a few months.

Today, EyeJets has a demonstration device and is in talks with major global eyewear and technology companies to accelerate development.

“It’s a demo that shows the strength of the patent and we need to develop it into a prototype,” EyeJets CTO Gur told The Media Line. “It will take about a year.”

Gur added that the company aims to make the glasses as affordable as possible and cost less than a high-end smartphone.

“We believe people will have a great experience watching the screen,” Gur said. “No one has tried our method [before].”

Your guide to oculomotor nerve palsy and its treatment https://see-concept.com/your-guide-to-oculomotor-nerve-palsy-and-its-treatment/ Fri, 16 Sep 2022 17:05:35 +0000 https://see-concept.com/your-guide-to-oculomotor-nerve-palsy-and-its-treatment/

Oculomotor nerve palsy is a nerve condition that affects your vision. This can lead to double vision and difficulty using both eyes together. A weakness in the oculomotor nerves causes this condition, leading to loss of control over important eye muscles.

Sometimes people are born with motor paralysis of the oculomotor nerve. In other cases, the condition results from disease or injury. Treatment depends on the underlying cause, but may include surgery, corrective lenses, or vision therapy.

Oculomotor nerve palsy is any decrease in the strength of the oculomotor nerves. These nerves coordinate the vital muscle movements of your eyes. They help your eyes focus and are responsible for defining your visual field. eye muscles controlled by the oculomotor nerves include:

  • upper right
  • lower right
  • medial right
  • inferior oblique
  • levator palpebrae superioris

Oculomotor paralysis can affect one or all of these muscles. It can be partial with mild symptoms or complete with severe symptoms.

The causes of paralysis of the oculomotor nerve are multiple. In many cases, the condition is developmental and sometimes present at birth. It can also occur as a result of injury during the birthing process.

When people acquire oculomotor nerve palsy later in life, it can result from many conditions, infections, and injuries. They understand:

Symptoms of oculomotor nerve palsy can depend on the severity and number of muscles affected. Most symptoms are also symptoms of other eye or nerve conditions.

However, it’s always a good idea to contact a medical professional about any symptoms that affect your vision. Many conditions that change your vision can get worse, and early treatment can be important.

Common symptoms of ocular nerve palsy include:

  • Double vision. Oculomotor nerve palsy affects the way your eyes work together. When your eyes cannot work together properly, it can cause double vision.
  • Loss of eye concentration and crossed eyes. It can be difficult to focus your eyes or control the direction of your eye movements when you have oculomotor nerve palsy. Often people with this condition have difficulty moving their eyes in the same direction at the same time.
  • Atypical head movements. People with oculomotor nerve palsy often move their heads to compensate for their weakened eye muscles. This can lead to head movements and postures that may distract you or make you feel uncomfortable.

What does oculomotor nerve palsy look like?

Treatment for oculomotor nerve palsy will depend on the underlying cause and severity. You may need to undergo a series of tests before your doctors can finalize a treatment plan. The tests will help doctors find the exact cause and the muscles involved.

Common treatment options include:

  • Surgery to relieve pressure on the nerve. Doctors often do surgery for a tumor, aneurysm, or non-cancerous growth.
  • Eye muscle surgery. A type of eye surgery called strabismus surgery can help realign the eyes.
  • Temporary eye patches or prism glasses. These visual aids can help manage double vision. You can wear them for 6 months to a year. Sometimes this is enough for the oculomotor nerve palsy to heal on its own.
  • Permanent prism glasses. You can wear prism glasses daily to manage double vision.
  • Visual therapy. Vision therapy is a program that helps strengthen eye muscles to help reduce or eliminate symptoms.

Your coverage will depend on the specific treatment. Medicare or other insurance plans usually don’t include coverage for vision problems. Rarely are treatments such as eye patches, glasses, specialized lenses or vision therapy covered.

However, treatment options, such as surgery to relieve pressure on the eye nerve, may be covered under some plans. For example, although Medicare does not cover treatments such as vision therapy and prismatic lenses, it does cover surgeries that repair eye function.

It’s a good idea to talk with your doctors about any planned treatment ahead of time. You can then call your insurance company to see what coverage they offer.

In many cases, oculomotor nerve palsy disappears within a few months. When this is not the case, options such as glasses with prismatic lenses can help you manage the symptoms in your daily life. Surgical treatments and vision therapy can also reduce symptoms and help improve eye muscle strength.

The underlying cause of your oculomotor nerve palsy affects your range of treatment options and your outlook. For some causes, such as high blood pressure or diabetes, managing those causes can play an important role in improving your outlook.

Oculomotor nerve palsy is a condition that affects the oculomotor nerves in your eyes. This leads to decreased strength and harder control of your eye muscles. This leads to double vision and difficulty focusing your eyes.

Oculomotor nerve palsy can be present at birth or can result from health problems, injuries, or infections. In some cases, oculomotor nerve palsy resolves quickly without intervention. When you need treatment, a combination of surgery, corrective vision aids and vision therapy can help.

Advice from WWE Superstar Titus O’Neil and Club Teen https://see-concept.com/advice-from-wwe-superstar-titus-oneil-and-club-teen/ Mon, 12 Sep 2022 21:45:18 +0000 https://see-concept.com/advice-from-wwe-superstar-titus-oneil-and-club-teen/

What do a high school student and a WWE Superstar have in common? They both know bullying when they see it — and they see it all the time, whether at school or in social media comments.

Recently, teenager and Boys & Girls Club anti-bullying advocate Dejae and WWE Global Ambassador and Boys & Girls Club alumnus Titus O’Neil sat down to talk about bullying.

How Bullying Affects Students

“I was bullied as a kid,” says Titus. “Being poor and growing up, we didn’t always have the best clothes. I also wore glasses and got bullied in many ways, from pranks to fights and everything in between. As I got older, I developed a very strong distaste for bullying, simply because I didn’t understand how people could be so cruel.

Now, Titus is an advocate for bullying prevention, helping to educate Boys & Girls Club youth on how to stand up to bullying through Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s partnership with WWE and the program of bullying prevention Be A STAR.

For Dejae, a high school teenager, the bullying also started early – and lasted. “I was bullied at a young age, second through fourth grade, at least,” she says. “I cried a lot because I was bullied and I really didn’t know why. It took me years to tell a teacher. And the only reason it stopped was is because I went to an adult and got help.

When Dejae joined the Boys & Girls Club of the Hatchie River area in 2015, she found caring mentors and a bullying prevention program she wished she had when she was being bullied at school. school.

As a teenage ambassador for the Be A STAR program, Dejae serves as a bullying prevention coach and role model for her club peers, demonstrating tolerance, kindness and acceptance while educating young members of the club. club on recognizing and responding to bullying. “It feels good to help other kids learn the importance of not being a bully,” she says. “And helping other kids taught me how to be better myself.”

Changing mindsets from snitching to saving lives

Dejae’s experience of waiting years to tell an adult that she was being bullied is not unusual. According to 2022 Youth Data from Boys & Girls Clubs of America, the majority of young people (67%) say that when something is wrong in their life, they try to keep people from finding out.

Plus, going to an adult to report bullying has age-old social connotations — whistleblowers, snitches, and the like. – which can cause young people to put their social status ahead of their mental health, physical safety and more. But bullying prevention advocates like Titus and Dejae are working to change that mindset.

“If someone is being bullied, you could actually save their life by saying so,” Titus says. “The bully could hurt the person, or the person could turn around and hurt themselves just because they’re tired of being bullied and they’ve yelled for help in the wrong place. Being able to go tell a trusted adult could very well save someone’s life. You could save someone’s sanity space. You could put someone in a position where they feel empowered to use their voice.

The urgency to tell someone about bullying before it gets too far hits hard with Dejae. Recently, she lost a friend to suicide after being repeatedly bullied at school and feeling hopeless. “He was a really lovely guy. Very smart,” she says. “But I feel like if someone had done something sooner, he’d still be here, you know?”

How to deal with cyberbullying

In recent years, as children and teens spend more and more time on screens, cyberbullying has become a primary form of bullying. “It’s very easy for people to be cruel or rude online,” says Titus. “But it’s just as easy for us to deflect it. I always tell people that if someone doesn’t know you personally, don’t take it personally.

Titus and Dejae’s top tips for dealing with cyberbullying include:

Know the signs of cyberbullying.
Block online bullies.
Check friends who may be receiving negative interactions online.
If you or someone else is being bullied, tell an adult.

On social media, kids often see cyberbullying happening in real time. Dejae notes that checking out if someone is being cyberbullied is important to let them know that they are not alone and that cyberbullying is unacceptable.

“Cyberbullying could be like Instagram, Facebook, anything. And it could just be in their comments saying rude and horrible things to them,” she says. “For me, I would probably text them or call them and be like, ‘Hey, it’s okay. You know, it’s just words. They don’t mean anything. They just want to be mean to someone.

Titus adds, “Conversation is the biggest key. It’s important to say, ‘hey what’s going on?’ if their mood is bad. Hopefully you can talk to them about it as a friend and then tell a trusted adult about the situation. And remember, there is a blocking feature on each of these apps.

Bullying Prevention in Boys and Girls Clubs

Boys & Girls Clubs play a special role in the lives of American children and teens, with trained, caring staff who get to know young people every day during the critical period between school and home. Club staff regularly check club members for stress, self-esteem and mental well-being and know how to spot signs of bullying.

The Boys and Girls Clubs Be A STAR bullying prevention program equips children with the knowledge and skills to develop their emotional intelligence, regulate their emotions, and learn how to express their feelings safely. Young people learn the most common forms of bullying they might encounter, as well as specific advice on what to do if: you feel you have bullied someone; you are the target or victim of bullying; you have witnessed harassment.

The importance of anti-bullying programs also stems from the fact that they provide children with a non-judgmental forum to openly discuss emotions and bullying, share experiences, and build empathy and community. When a celebrity and former club kid like Titus O’Neil shows up at a Be A STAR rally, young people see that most people have been bullied in some form and realize he’s strong. talk about.

For Dejae, becoming a bullying prevention advocate for her club gives her pride. “I know it really hurts to be bullied – it made me feel disappointed, hurt, sad,” she says. “It feels good to know that I can help other children.”

Titus’ biggest tip for kids and adults alike? “In a world where there is so much negativity, speak up and treat others with kindness.”

Lansing nonprofit builds bunk beds for children in need https://see-concept.com/lansing-nonprofit-builds-bunk-beds-for-children-in-need/ Sat, 10 Sep 2022 23:51:00 +0000 https://see-concept.com/lansing-nonprofit-builds-bunk-beds-for-children-in-need/

LANSING, Mich. (WILX) – The combined sounds of multiple hammers and the hum of sanders filled the air as people made beds for children.

Bunks Across America spent Saturday building bunk beds across the country. In Mid-Michigan, Sleep in Heavenly Peace said 6,000 children didn’t have their own beds, and dozens of people showed up to help change that.

Lily: ‘We travel!’ – Ingham County Sheriff’s Office recovers wanted fugitive from Iron County

In 2022, Sleep in Heavenly Peace – Lansing Chapter has set a goal of giving 500 children a place to lay their heads at night.

Volunteer coordinator Sherri Hines said the need would knock you out of bed.

“That’s about 3% of the population in any city, so for the greater Lansing area, which this chapter serves, that’s about 6,000 kids today who don’t have a bed of their own,” Hines said.

Around 60 volunteers showed up to reduce that number where they measured, cut, sanded and drilled to make bed components from scratch, totaling 60 beds. The work was done at the assembly line, with different stations performing part of the process.

Hines said people can come to help with little or no experience.

“You get a job; you agree to come voluntarily. We provide gloves, safety glasses and sanding equipment, all equipment is provided by us and we teach you a new skill,” Hines said.

Jerrod Olsen is the founder of Sleep in Heavenly Peace – Lansing Chapter. He said delivering the beds is what makes the moments special.

“You just have to help families who don’t have that opportunity or need that kind of help from the community and we can say we’ll help your child find a bed. “And more than likely for the first time,” Olsen said.

Lowes donated all supplies to complete and help fund the project. Cots are available for children aged 3 to 17. All beds are new, with mattresses and bedding. SHP expects to deliver the beds no later than December.

The next building event will take place on October 30 at the Immanuel Lutheran Church in Grand Ledge.

How long does a lens replacement take? https://see-concept.com/how-long-does-a-lens-replacement-take/ Thu, 08 Sep 2022 17:19:10 +0000 https://see-concept.com/how-long-does-a-lens-replacement-take/

Oklahoma City, Sept. 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Oklahoma City, Oklahoma –

43Vision, based in Oklahoma City, OK, has published an article that explains how long a lens replacement can take. Over the years, the clinic has seen countless patients undergo such procedures, and their insight can help people better understand what to expect. The article can be found here: How long does lens replacement last.

43Vision says it’s important for patients to understand what they can expect during their procedure. Although specifically recommended by their team due to its high success rate and safety, knowing what an appointment entails can help minimize a patient’s distress on the day of their procedure. This, in turn, can aid in their recovery and make it easier for them to acclimate to the replacement.

The article says, “The eye’s dysfunctional natural lens is replaced during lens replacement surgery with a clear, high-tech intraocular lens to provide truly life-changing vision correction. For most people, it can grant the absence of glasses, including reading glasses, as well as the absence of contact lenses. 43Vision specializes in lens replacement because it can provide independence from eyeglasses, can prevent patients from developing cataracts, and is one of the safest medical procedures. Custom Lens Replacement (CLR) surgery is our primary recommendation for vision correction. »

According to the clinic, the procedure itself takes very little time, but patients should be aware that their lens replacement can practically take longer if they take into account the time spent in consultations and recovery. To begin with, a patient cannot expect to walk into an initial consultation and be allowed to undergo the procedure immediately afterwards. The article states that each patient is thoroughly assessed to ensure they are an ideal candidate for this procedure (if not, another may be recommended). This includes a comprehensive eye exam to establish the patient’s baseline, assess overall eye health, and more.

Patients are also told about the different artificial lenses on offer, although their eye surgeon is likely to recommend a specific lens that best suits each patient’s needs. At this point, the patient can raise concerns about the lens or the surgery itself. A follow-up appointment may be scheduled for the procedure following this step.

“On the day of your custom lens replacement procedure,” the article states, “the eye’s natural dysfunctional lens is first removed during the process and then exchanged for an upgraded custom lens. Usually, both eyes are treated on the same day, and patients often see a noticeable improvement in their vision over the following days. Customized lens replacement aims to provide a full spectrum of high quality distance and near vision without glasses and to avoid the need for future cataract surgery. The actual procedure usually only takes a few minutes.

Overall, the clinic says patients should plan to spend about two to three hours in the office on the day of their eye surgery. This is true whether they are undergoing lens replacement surgery, cataract surgery or laser eye surgery – and this takes into account the time spent on registration, surgical preparation, surgery and even the period immediately after the procedure when the clinic keeps an eye on the patient to make sure everything is okay.

43Vision advises that it is best for patients to go straight home after their procedure (with the help of a trusted friend or family member, as they may experience blurry vision for a period of time) and rest for a few hours. The next day they will have a follow-up session with their surgeon to see how their vision is improving. Some other restrictions may apply depending on the patient’s individual needs, but this is generally what they can expect.

43Vision offers plenty of other details in their article, including a full breakdown of a patient’s typical schedule on the day of surgery (once they arrive in the office). For more details and clarifications, patients are also advised to contact the clinic directly and make an appointment. 43Vision and its staff will be happy to assist you in any way possible.

During the Wheat Festival this summer you may have seen the Cowboy Action Shooters competition at the Trigger Guard Shooting Range just outside Wellington.

Starting in September, you’ll get to see cowboys go head-to-head every month as Trigger Guard launches its very own Cowboy Action Match Club. The Club will meet on the 1st Saturday of each month at 10 a.m.

“Our goal is to become an official SASS Affiliate Club,” said Mike Yoder, owner of Trigger Guard. “We currently have 20 people interested in joining the club, and we hope to increase this participation to 50 members.”

The Single Action Shooting Society (SASS) is an international organization established to preserve and promote the sport of Cowboy Action Shooting. all participants and take out liability insurance.

A Cowboy Action Match requires an individual shooter to have three “Old West” style firearms to participate; a lever-action rifle, a Winchester Model 97 pump-action shotgun or a double-barreled shotgun and two single-action revolver pistols.

Of course, it’s not a Cowboy Action Match without the cowboys! The other requirement for this shooting event is that competitors dress in cowboy attire. Many participants dress to perfection in leggings, boots, jeans, buttons and a hat, and it’s all part of what makes these matches so in-

Interesting and unique A2.

Trigger Guard only needs boots and a cowboy hat for his club. However, safety glasses and hearing protection should be worn when shooting.

The monthly Cowboy Action Match will take place in 5 stages, rotating in variety each month, to provide new competition with each match. In each stage, a competitor will use 10 rounds for the rifle, 10 rounds for each pistol, and 4-6 rounds for the shotgun.

A variety of knockdown targets and sound targets will be used during each match. There will be 2 divisions, Center Fire and Rim Fire. The 1st place winner in each division will win a gift certificate to The Dore.

Cowboy Action Match shoots are open to the public and viewers are encouraged. During match shooting, the rest of the shooting bays will be open for target shooting.

Individual filming admission is $10 and loaner firearms are available at the shooting range.

California opens dove season | BenitoLink https://see-concept.com/california-opens-dove-season-benitolink/ Sat, 03 Sep 2022 01:58:04 +0000 https://see-concept.com/california-opens-dove-season-benitolink/ The seasons run from September 1 to September 15 and from November 12 to December 26.

Information provided by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) said the first dove hunting season in California began September 1 and continues through September 15. This includes the mourning dove, white-winged dove, spotted dove, and ringed dove. The second season runs from November 12 to December 26.

The release says the mourning dove and white-winged dove have a daily bag limit of 15, of which up to 10 can be white-winged doves. The possession limit is three times the daily bag limit. There is no limit for spotted and banded doves. Collared Dove hunting is open year-round and there are no bag or possession limits. A dove identification guide (PDF) is available on the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) website.

“Hunters are reminded that lead-free ammunition is required when hunting doves and taking wildlife anywhere in California with a firearm,” the statement read.

He added that many dove hunting opportunities are available to the public for the first dove season at CDFW wildlife areas across the state. These areas include Upper Butte Basin, Gray Lodge, Yolo Bypass, North Grasslands, Los Banos and Imperial Valley Wildlife Areas, and Palo Verde Ecological Reserve. Many of these areas have been planted with food crops to attract and retain doves. Maps are available at some checkpoints or online. Entry procedures vary by region and hunters are advised to call ahead to plan their hunt. Parts of the Los Banos and Northern Grasslands Wildlife Areas are restricted to special permit holders until noon on September 1, after which they will be open to public hunting for the remainder of the first season.

Additional dove hunting opportunities are available to the public through CDFW’s Upland Game Wild Bird Hunts and SHARE programs. Dove hunting is considered an excellent starting point for new hunters. This is often the first hunting season available to newly licensed hunters who have completed their off-season hunter education. There’s very little gear needed, usually lots of rapid-fire action, camaraderie, and plenty of hunting opportunities on public lands.

Fish and Wildlife said the minimum hunting requirements are a valid hunting license and upland game bird validation (validation not required for junior hunting license holders), good footwear, a hunting of almost any caliber, lead-free shotgun shells, a cooler with ice to store your birds, and plenty of water for the generally hot weather. For more dove hunting information and resources, CDFW’s Advanced Hunter Education program offers videos to get you started and CDFW’s R3 program also offers additional resources and videos.

“Mourning Doves favor dry environments and can exploit many food types and sources,” the statement said. “Most successful dove hunters will position themselves near paths to and from roost sites, water, food sources, or gravel. Dove movements are most common in the early morning and late evening when they fly to and from their roosting sites, but late morning to early afternoon can still provide opportunities.Hunters should monitor dove activity in the area several times before hunting.

As a dove hunter, you have a chance of encountering a banded dove. As of August 15, CDFW staff and volunteers have banded more than 1,100 doves across California. If you harvest a banded dove, please report the band to the U.S. Geological Survey (www.reportband.gov) to help with further research on the dove.

The CDFW Wildlife Health Laboratory recently confirmed the presence of highly pathogenic Eurasian avian influenza H5N1 in three wild birds found in Colusa and Glenn counties. If you suspect a dove is infected with Avian Influenza or Trichomonas, please contact the CDFW Wildlife Health Lab by email or by phone at 916-358-2790.

Important laws and regulations to consider include:

  • The shooting time for the doves is from half an hour before sunrise until sunset.
  • All hunters, including junior hunting license holders, must have their hunting license on them.
  • Hunters must have written permission from the owner before hunting on private land.
  • Bag limits apply to each hunter and no one can take more than one legal limit.
  • It is forbidden to shoot within 150 meters of an occupied dwelling.
  • It is illegal to shoot from or across a public road.

“It is the responsibility of every hunter to know and follow all laws,” the statement read.

The release says safety is the most important part of any hunting adventure and safety goggles are a simple way to protect the eyes and are available in many shades for hunting in all types of lighting situations. . Hearing protection is also strongly recommended.

In their statement, the Department warns that weather across the state on September 1 is expected to be hot and dry. He urges hunters to drink plenty of fluids, wear sunscreen and have a plan in case of an accident.
