Lying through my eyes

first_img The radio-evangelist, the Rev. Warren Walker, said that illness is caused from evil doings.I don’t guess that near-sightedness or far sightedness, whichever, is an illness but I do believe that I’m getting paid back for my evil doings as a child.I made up things. Even told stories to my mama and the town doctor, Doctor Killingsworth. And because of it, I have to have eyeglasses to see anything that’s right up on me. By Jaine Treadwell Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Md: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch) Book Nook to reopen Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration By Blood Sugar Blaster Email the author Sponsored Content The day a little girl came into Mrs. Beverly’s classroom wearing a pair of orange-rimmed eyeglasses was the day that I learned the real meaning of covet.She was the first little person I had seen with eyeglasses on and everybody was carrying on over her and Mrs. Beverly said how nice she looked in her glasses.“Now you can see the blackboard and everything else so plain and clear,” Mrs. Beverly said and patted her on the head.Those eyeglasses gave her X-ray power just like Superman. I had always wanted X-ray power and I wanted me some eyeglasses. Published 2:00 am Saturday, July 11, 2015 Skip Lying through my eyes I started needing eyeglasses that very day. I squinted one eye at the blackboard. Then I squinted two eyes but Mrs. Beverly didn’t notice. When I got home, I told Mama that my eyes hurt. Now, I was taking a real chance on that because Mama’s remedy for any ailment from a scraped knee to a ruptured appendix was an enema. But I would do just about anything for eyeglasses.“No, I didn’t get anything in my eyes,” I told Mama.” They just hurt and my head did, too. They started hurting when I was trying to see the blackboard – my eyes and my head.”Mama told me to lie down and she put a wet bath cloth over my eyes.For the next two days, we went through the same thing. I kind of liked lying there with a wet cloth over my eyes. In my mind’s eye, I could picture myself with my new orange-rimmed eyeglasses on.Mama finally decided I might need eyeglasses so she took me to see Dr. Killingsworth. He looked in my eyes with a little light and had me to look this way and that way and up and down. Then he told me to cover one eye with a piece of cardboard and read the letters on the chart.The first one was the biggest “E” I had ever seen and I called it every letter in the alphabet except an “E.”Dr. Killingsworth motioned Mama over in the corner, and they whispered so I couldn’t hear them. He was telling Mama I needed eyeglasses. I was sure of that.He came back and rubbed some stuff on my eyelids.“Now, if this ointment doesn’t help, bring her back on Monday, and I’ll give her a shot that should clear her eyes up,” that mean ol’ doctor said.Well, it would be a month of Sundays before I went back to him. I wasn’t about to get a shot when what I needed was eyeglasses.Now, I have to wear glasses to read, to see the food on my plate and to tie my shoes. And, I just don’t look as cute in them as I thought I would.

I’ve lost them so much that nobody will help me look for them.I work myself up into such a frenzy looking for my eyeglasses that I have to take an aspirin and put a cold, wet cloth on my head. Lying there it all comes back to me as to why I’m being punished that way.A pair of eyeglasses was the one thing that my little childhood heart wanted most.

Inter and Adriano Terminate Their Contract

first_imgBy Dialogo April 27, 2009 The contract between Brazilian striker Adriano, who is on a break with his career and is trying to overcome depression in Brazil, and Italian club Inter Milan has been terminated “on a consensual basis,” said the club on Friday in a statement. The termination is effective as of April 1, 2009, according to the club in the 1st division of Italian football, which concluded with a statement giving “Adriano an embrace from all the Inter team, for eight years and 74 goals during their time together.” The player, aged 27, did not return to Milan after his most recent public appearance on April 1, sitting on his national soccer team’s bench during Brazil’s 3 to 5 victory over Peru in the playoffs for the 2010 World Cup South Africa. Adriano joined Inter in 2001 but was transferred three times: to Fiorentina (January-June 2002), to Parma (2002-January 2004) and to Sao Paulo (January-June 2008). In total, he has participated in 117 matches with Inter, including 123 league games (48 goals) and 35 in European Cups (18 goals), and won three Italian league (2006, 2007 and 2008) and two Italian Cups (2005 and 2006). 2004-2005 was his best season, with 28 goals (10 in the Champions League).last_img read more

Website accessibility: Risks, but no rules

first_imgIn compliance, sometimes things are black and white (for example, the requirement to provide an adverse action notice within 30 days is found in 1002.9(a)(1)(i)). Other times they’re grey. And the grey areas can be where you’ll find some of your greatest potential risks.A current – and sure to be ongoing – example is website accessibility. Lawsuits alleging violations of the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) are on the rise. In 2015 alone, there were over 40 website accessibility cases under the ADA filed against well-known companies such as the National Basketball Association, Sprint, J.C. Penney, and Home Depot.In general, these lawsuits claim that websites contain digital barriers that limit the ability of the visually impaired to access the site. These individuals use assistive technology, such as screen reader software, to convert web page text to synthesized speech or a digital Braille display. However, for the screen readers to work with a website, the web developer must program the site for compatibility. continue reading » 47SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Inmate serving life-sentence believes he should be released after he had to be resuscitated

first_imgAn inmate who is serving a life-sentence without parole says he believes he has served his sentence and should be released from prison after he fell ill and had to be resuscitated.Benjamin Schreiber filed a motion for his release first to a district court and then to the the Iowa Court of Appeals.According to the report, the inmate who was convicted of first-degree murder in 1997, developed large kidney stones in 2015 which eventually led to him becoming septic. Schreiber was said to have fell unconscious in his cell and was taken to the hospital where he was resuscitated five times by medical staff.Schreiber now claims that he is being held illegally in prison because he ” momentarily died at the hospital, thereby fulfilling his ‘life’ sentence … Because his sentence has been fulfilled, he argues, he is imprisoned illegally and should be immediately released.”The district court denied Schreiber’s motion and on Wednesday, the Iowa Court of Appeals upheld the lower court’s decision that Schreiber should remain in custody.The appeals court reported that those guilty of a class A felony “must spend the rest of their natural life in prison, regardless of how long that period of time ends up being or any events occurring before the defendant’s life ends.”It is unclear if  Schreiber plans to continue pleading his case.last_img read more
