Wearing goggles in space can help prevent vision problems among astronauts, advise NASA experts

(Natural News) The weightless environment of outer space can degrade the eyesight of an astronaut, especially during long-duration missions. But a new study suggests that wearing protective goggles of any type will help preserve the person’s sight in micro-gravity and zero-gravity conditions. NASA researchers noticed that astronauts who stayed aboard the International Space Station (ISS)...

This article includes references to self-injury, intravenous drug use and disordered eating.* One in five US high school students have reported being bullied. Approximately 160,000 teenagers have skipped school as a preventative measure. I encountered bullies for the first time in second grade, in the midst of such an innocent time of my youth. I dreaded entering my elementary school classroom, as I was well aware of what my presence would entail. I endured both verbal and physical harassment from my fellow peers for nearly a decade. I was passive, inevitably leading to the acceptance of my “fate,” in addition ...

Short-eared Owl at Burwell Fen, photographed mid-January One evening in late November, I was once again, hoping to catch sight of the Starling murmurations that occur over the Broad Lane balancing pond. As mentioned in a previous, issue the local Starlings and their continental counterparts will often roost in the reed bed there, last winter there were literally thousands. At the time of writing, just a few hundred are roosting, but that can change on a wind as arrivals from Europe turn up when the weather changes. Anyway, reader Alison waved as she passed the pond on her dog walk. I later heard that she’d seen a scu...

Ankush K Desai, Ugam P S Usgaonkar, Vivek S Naik, Madan Deshpande, Rajan ShuklaIndian Journal of Ophthalmology 2020 68(13):88-91 Diabetes mellitus continues to increase in epidemic proportions globally as well as in India. Poor glycemic control in long-standing diabetes mellitus eventually leads to chronic complications such as retinopathy, nephropathy, neuropathy, and cardiovascular disease. Diabetic retinopathy is emerging as an important cause of avoidable visual impairment and blindness in India across all strata of society.

Many entrepreneurs find pricing decisions for their products and services really challenging. You’ll often hear such people asking each other, “What should I charge?” I’ve read a number of books about pricing with complex ideas on how to do it correctly. Most involved some form of testing and optimization. They all shared the same underlying assumption though: that the optimal prices are those which extract the most long-term profit. Since that’s extremely difficult to predict, testing is essential. Testing of that nature can be dreadfully boring though, and you still won’t know if...

All too often, it is easy for people to cross boundaries they do not have the right to cross. In every culture across the globe, the same horrors happen, usually in the shadows. Heroes arise. Changes are made. Yet, problems like stalking, human trafficking, and modern slavery continue. Social consciousness spurs governmental agencies to organize in fighting this never-ending battle, and some of these efforts are making a real difference, from local police departments to national and international cooperation. January is the month of focus each year, but active help is available every day, 24 hours a day.  In many case...

Don’t settle for unhappiness! No matter who you are, there are going to be days (or weeks or months) where life kinda stinks and love and happiness are nowhere in sight. In the back of your mind is that you just want to be happy. Yet, if you were to be honest, you’d settle for things being even just a little bit better. It was Bob Marley who said, “Love the life you live. Live the life you love.” But that doesn’t mean you need to play reggae and go to Jamaica to be happy. Rather, the phrase “Love the life you live” means to find the beauty in your life rather than judgin...
