The sight of landforms and vegetation, blurred into contoured blocks of shadow, de-specified by gloomy obscurity, was perturbingly flat, and led me to muse on depth-perception. This was, by no means, my first musing on sight, as the delicate nature of our (my) visual ability is a periodic concern (neurosis) of mine – I worry about blindness. Looking out over the landscape, closing one eye, then the other, I wondered how profound the effect of losing one eye would be – how greatly would I be destabilised. Would my recognition of the world around me.

When Detective Mark Harding was killed off "The Young and the Restless" last year, fans of the long-running CBS soap, went ballistic. Not because the character had met his just comeuppance, but because fan favorite Chris McKenna (formally of Watertown, CT. , now living in L.

Dinners with her large family are frustrating and, often, exhausting.At 91, she is “essentially deaf,” Wang said, because her hearing aids provide so little benefit that she seldom wears them. So Wang, now a professor computer science and engineering at Ohio State University, is building a better hearing aid, with...
