Larry Hester, a 66-year-old tire salesman from Raleigh, North Carolina, has spent the latter half of his life blind, due to a degenerative condition called retinitis pigmentosa that destroyed his photoreceptor cells. But thanks to new "bionic eye" technology, and Dr. Paul Hahn and his team at Duke Eye Center in Durham, North Carolina, Hester is no longer entirely in the dark, reported Today.com.

"It was incredible," Hester says in the video from Duke Medicine about his new sense of vision. "It was bright and it was significant, and I just had to take a deep breath... It was hard to articulate what I was feeling, but I wanted to share it with everybody I could grab at the time and hug."

BEULAH, Mich. (AP) — A judge Wednesday sentenced the mother of an autistic Michigan teenager to 10-22 years in prison for what the woman described as a failed murder-suicide attempt brought on by despair after years of violent attacks by her child and failure to find affordable and effective treatment.

Kelli Rai Stapleton, 46, pleaded guilty last month to first-degree child abuse in a bargain with prosecutors who dismissed an attempted murder charge. She admitted driving her daughter Isabelle to an isolated spot in rural northern Michigan in September 2013, giving her a sleep-inducing drug and placing two charcoal-burning grills inside their van.

Both survived, although Isabelle, now 1

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Brittany Maynard will not live to see if her advocacy makes a difference.

The 29-year-old woman expects to die next month. If the brain cancer from which she suffers does not kill her in October, she plans to take advantage of Oregon's Death with Dignity Act and end her own life on the first of November — a few days after her husband's 43rd birthday.

Her birthday is Nov. 19.

"That would have been my 30th birthday," she said in an interview Wednesday. "As of right now, I don't know that I'm going to make it to my 30th birthday, and that's a really difficult thing to process emotionally."

Maynard and her husband, Dan Diaz, uprooted from Northern California and

The Hague (AFP) - One of the people on the Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 shot down in Ukraine in July was found wearing an oxygen mask, the Dutch foreign minister and prosecutors said, raising the possibility that some passengers might have known their plane was doomed.

"You know that somebody was discovered wearing an oxygen mask and had time to put it on," Foreign Minister Frans Timmermans told a talk show on national television late Wednesday.

Dutch prosecutors confirmed on Thursday they were investigating after the oxygen mask was discovered draped around the person's neck.

"How and when the mask ended up around the victim's neck is unknown," the prosecutors stressed.

CHICAGO — Sarah Goldberg, who starred in the television series "7th Heaven" and the film "Jurassic Park III," has died. She was 40.

Goldberg died in her sleep of natural causes on Sept. 27 at her family's cabin in Wisconsin, her mother Judy Goldberg told the Chicago Sun-Times (http://bit.ly/1vMQ8c0 ). She said a heart ailment is suspected, although an autopsy failed to determine the exact cause of death.

"She went to sleep and didn't wake up," she said.

Goldberg's entertainment career started as a bumblebee in a Chicago City Ballet production of "Cinderella," her mother said, and gained momentum when she was asked to be an extra on the Julia Roberts movie "My Best Friend's Wedding.

A bond between the best of friends means even more to Iris Grace Halmshaw, a 5-year-old British girl who was diagnosed with autism in 2011, reported ABC News. Her disorder prevents her from speaking like so many kids her age, so through the encouragement of her parents, she learned how to express her emotions through painting instead.

Her works of art are nothing short of incredible, and her family sells them for hundreds of dollars each, using the money to pay for her therapy treatments and art supplies, and to raise awareness about autism, according to their Facebook page.

You cannot help but love this video. The baby bunny is simply adorable.

Though rabbits don't usually require full submersion in a tub, and spot cleaning is typically optimal, YouTube poster Bowen Smith points out why this bunny received a bath and the precautions that were taken taken:

Yes, her and her siblings (not pictured) were completely filthy and needed a bath. It should be noted however that cold bath water can very easily give rabbits hypothermia and measures should be taken to reduce that likelihood, preferably by measuring the temperature of the water and making sure it is between 101°F and 103°F (Average rabbit body temperature).? Paw Nation lists bunny bathing best practic

Adrianna Kenebrew has a ferocious passion for gymnastics.

That passion is apparent to all spectators the moment she steps up to the mats. They also notice, however, the special corrective glasses she must wear to be able see any of her surroundings at all.

The 11-year-old Texas native was diagnosed with congenital glaucoma when she was 5 months old. After more than a dozen surgeries, her doctors were able to preserve her remaining vision, but that still left her legally blind at 3 years old -- nearsighted and lacking peripheral vision, reported Today.com. But her positive attitude and endless spirit for pursuing a sport she loves almost makes her forget her disability at times.

Wonder why I'm publishing this story? You say it's too old? I don't think so. I may side with the Israel government generally, but what they did is murder and should be held totally responsible. We should accept no excuses for such slaughter.


The controlled mass media has been overwhelming in its coverage of the three murdered Israeli teens—but has completely suppressed the names and identities of the in excess of 1,500 Palestinian teens who have been murdered by Israeli state-sponsored terrorism since the year 2000.
