Sightsavers- Helping people in India to save their sight

Sight is one of the five senses that enable us to identify what we encounter in our environment. It can give us pleasure when we observe a beautiful sunset or a work of art, and it can protect us from traumatic injury, such as stepping in front of a car or other conveyance, falling down a step, or inadvertently stepping into a lake or pond and possibly drowning. Several diseases can impair our sight and precautions should be taken to avoid situations which could trigger these diseases.

 

In India people should take the following steps to maintain their sight.

 

Anywhere a person is outdoors, they should avoid looking directly at the sun, since the sun’s rays can cause cataracts. The cornea is the transparent layer that covers the front of the eyeball. Cataracts can cause the cornea to become cloudy, and if this happens, then sight is impaired. When out in the sun one should always wear polarized sun glasses that block the ultraviolate (UV) rays of the sun that speed up the formation of cataracts that cloud your cornea and reduce your vision.

 

The people of India should also avoid sources of dirty water that they might get into their eyes. Water infected with microorganisms can transmit microorganisms such as amoeba to a person’s eyes and destroy that person’s sight. Therefore, the water used for face washing in India should be boiled before use, or distilled water should be used. People should be educated as to the importance of these practices. It is not difficult for an adult to realize the importance of staying out of the sun to slow down the development of cataracts and avoiding polluted water.

 

Thus, there are many steps the people of India can take to preserve their eyesight and enable them to have the best vision possible well into their old age.

Vijay Eswaran: Helping People Get Over Their Limitations

Some businessmen and businesswomen make their ends meet and don’t extend their road to success with others. It’s the complete opposite with Vijay Eswaran. For years, Eswaran has encouraged others to take the right steps to becoming successful themselves through motivational speaking. One of the key things he advocates would be the stages of change.

Eswaran believes that the starting point to making significant changes lies from within. He feels that once someone begins to truly believe he or she is making a turnaround, others around that person begin feeling a shift in vibrations. One way to do this is to overcome old habits that just bring you down.

Eswaran also is a strong believer that even a bad change is better than remaining stationary. If people run business and numbers have remained the same for months, making a bad change may not be the worse thing in the world as long as it isn’t an egregious decision.

The reason why a bad change could be better than no change at all, is that at least you made the effort to adapt. In a few short years, your number may decline at a rapid rate. At that point, making a change may be too late to save a business.

To make things easier for those who wish to turn their misfortunes around, Eswaran created the book titled Two Minutes from the Abyss. Often times, we get caught up in limitations such as time. After all, we will all pass away at some point. The book attempts to drive home the point that successful people don’t shackle themselves despite having an abundance of resources available to us. This is why keeping a sense of urgency is crucial. This will allow you to get things done without even thinking about the things that can weigh you down.

“Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff” The Story Behind The Story

The year was 1979. The place was Key West, Florida. Sean Penn was at a party in the “Passion Pit” where he observed a horrible piece of art that seemed to be made out of fiber glass. He wondered if any of the other people attending the party were getting frustrated with the art work being placed on a bar stool that other people could not use. He soon realizes that it was not a piece of art, but, in fact, an actual human being with minimal movement capabilities. This human with minor movement would later supply him with the manuscript for “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff“.

 

Sean Penn had a difficult time conversing with the man because of his inability to articulate a coherent sentence. He would use acronyms, scientific terms, and metaphors that did not make sense to Mr. Penn at the time. Relevantly, Sean Penn’s mother was creating greeting cards at the time. He used this information to fill in some gaps in the small talk and eventually ended up throwing his mother under the bus by giving out her address to the man that was mistaken for a horrendous piece of art.

 

Interestingly enough, Penn’s mother ended up being able to sell 500 greeting cards to the weird man. Almost 40 years later, Sean Penn’s mother receives a package in the mail from a “Pappy Pariah”. Initially, Penn told his mother to toss it out, but then realized that the name sounded familiar. He asked his mother to send it to him, and when he received it, he saw that it was the manuscript for the future book, “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff”.

 

Many people are under the misconception that Sean Penn actually wrote the book. In reality, Mr. Penn just read it, loved it, and helped him get it out in time before the elections. The book loosely, but obviously takes shot at the current POTUS with comments such as, “The violently immature seventy year old boy man with money and french vanilla cotton candy hair”. It is said to be an interesting thriller/mystery.

Another advantage of the PSI-Pay system is that it does not need too much authentification of the account holders and a lot of paperwork that is required especially when a customer wants to open a new bank account. This is something that discourages most of the people, and that is why you find that many people in the rural sector do not hold bank accounts.

PSI-Pay is continuing to put more effort to make sure that they are up t date in their services and that the customers get maximum satisfaction from them.

Kerve has almost the same kind of operation with the PSI-Pay company. Their customers use a ring to do transactions. This partnership will help the Kerve Users to pay in a vast number of locations worldwide and be able to use the contactless payments of the PSI-Pay and the clients of the psi-Pay will also be able to use the Kerve’s ring.

The Goals And Background Of The End Citizens United PAC

You may have heard of the landmark supreme court case called Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission. It took place in 2010. It overruled an inferior court’s ruling that banned the showing of a film that attacked Hilary Clinton in the 2008 Democratic primary election.

This landmark decision unleashed an outpouring of corporate money that can be used to win elections, buy politicians and essentially buy laws in place. The main component of the Citizens United vs. FEC ruling was that the people behind the Citizens United film were anonymous. Financiers and makers of the film were never revealed.

The original Citizens United ruling made this illegal. It prevented people and corporations from hiding behind a cloak of anonymity. People and corporations who funded the Hilary Clinton documentary had to reveal themselves. The original decision also identified the film attacking Clinton as a political ad. It was meant to damage her and prevent her from running as the Democratic Presidential candidate.

The overturning of Citizens United by a narrow margin has let billionaires and corporations pour unlimited amounts of money into ads. It has also led them to get away without identifying themselves. This is where the political action committee known as End Citizens United comes into being. It was started in 2015. The goal of the PAC is to help overturn this decision.

Why would a group want to overturn Citizens United you may ask? End Citizens United believes that the current ruling results in opaqueness or lack of transparency during political campaigns. We should know who is doing what and what their motives are. The present ruling creates a mask for corporations and wealthy individuals.

End Citizens United also believes that corporate and billionaire influence should be limited in politics. The supreme court ruling opens the gates for corporate and billionaire influence in American politics. By overturning Citizens United, End Citizens United believes that politicians will no longer be as easily bought or influenced by corporations and wealthy people. They will instead be more focused on their constituents.

Overturning Citizens United is a massive effort. This is why End Citizens United is so focused on garnering grassroots support. They are also trying to raise millions of dollars to help support political candidates that support their view of this crucial court case. The primary way that the group is hoping to end the Supreme Court ruling is by electing enough congressmen and senators that support overturning this decision.

A Look At Lee May: One Of The Most Underrated Players In Reds History

Lee May, one of the greatest players in the history of the Cincinnati Reds organization, recently passed away. While many Reds fans might remember May as one of the players that the Reds traded to get Joe Morgan, May’s contributions to the team are often overlooked.

 

May spent several years in the minor leagues before being called up to the major leagues. May showcased his tremendous power during his rookie season, during which he was honored as The Sporting News Rookie Of The Year. Over the next few seasons, May established himself as one of the best power hitters in Major League Baseball. May also began to develop a reputation as a clubhouse leader. While May was friendly and charming, he was also known for having a no-nonsense demeanor. At 6’3 and weighing in at over 200 pounds, May was an intimidating physical presence.

 

The 1970 season was one of the best of May’s career, as the Reds advanced to The World Series to face the Baltimore Orioles. May batted .389 during the Series while also driving in 8 runs. May followed up his great World Series performance by making the National League All Star Team in 1971.

 

However, the 1971 season did not produce the team success that Reds management hoped to see. Reds General Manager Bob Howsam made the decision to trade May and a few other players to Houston in order to acquire star second baseman Joe Morgan. May later revealed that he was hurt by the trade.

 

May continued to be a productive player during the later stages of his career. After being traded, May played for the Astros, Orioles, and Royals before retiring. After retiring, May rejoined the Reds organization. May was eventually inducted into the Reds Hall Of Fame.
