Halifax Explosion commemoration to recognize growing legend of Vince Coleman

first_imgHALIFAX – Exactly one century after he died, mustachioed train dispatcher Vince Coleman’s status as the ultimate Halifax Explosion hero will be cemented Wednesday.Calgary lawyer Jim Coleman — Vince’s grandson — will deliver brief remarks during the city’s commemorative ceremony to mark the 100th anniversary of the blast that killed or wounded 11,000 people.The recognition of Vince Coleman is the culmination of his growing legend for his selfless act of saving a trainload of passengers at the cost of his own life.Halifax now has a condo building named The Vincent Coleman, he was the runaway favourite in a naming contest this year for a new harbour ferry, and his belongings are proudly displayed at a popular museum.But Coleman says his father — Vince’s son — didn’t talk much about living through the horror of the Halifax Explosion, and neither did the rest of his family.“It’s amazing how many people have asked me about it, but we don’t have family lore,” says Coleman.Coleman’s story has enjoyed a revival since the early 1990s, when Historica Canada produced one of its most dramatic “Heritage Minutes,” which started with the dispatcher being alerted by a navy sailor that the SS Mont-Blanc, a French munitions ship, was on fire and was about to explode.As the 45-year-old father of four was about to flee the busy rail yard, he remembered that Train No. 10 was carrying several hundred people from Saint John, N.B., and was due to arrive at 8:55 a.m.He returned to his telegraph key inside the Richmond railway station, less than a kilometre from where the ship was burning.Despite the imminent danger, Coleman tapped out a message that warned stations up the line to stop all trains from entering Halifax.“Hold up the train,” the message said. “Ammunition ship afire in harbor making for Pier 6 and will explode. Guess this will be my last message. Good-bye boys.”Within minutes, the Mont Blanc and everything near it was obliterated by a super-heated shock wave that caused a tsunami to roll over the waterfront, including the station where Coleman worked.Coleman’s hurried message was among the first to alert the world to the unfolding tragedy. As a result, the Canadian Government Railway was able to quickly dispatch six relief trains carrying firefighters, doctors, nurses and badly needed medical supplies.“Periodically, we would talk about it, but it wasn’t that we really discussed it,” said Jim Coleman, whose grandmother Frances died in the 1970s. “When I look back, I find it quite strange.”Coleman, a senior partner with a Calgary law firm, says his father, Gerald Patrick Coleman, was an altar boy taking part in a mass early on Dec. 6, 1917, when the blast hit.Just after 9 a.m., the ground shook and the church walls fell in, crushing a fellow altar boy.“All the houses were knocked down,” says Jim Coleman, recalling one of the few stories his father told him about that day. “And here he was, this 11-year-old boy, helping to dig people out. It was traumatic. And then he found out that his father had been killed in the explosion and his home was gone.”The blast killed about 2,000 people and wounded another 9,000. Hundreds were blinded by flying glass, and another 25,000 were left homeless. The city’s north end was levelled, and much of what was left standing was eventually burned by fires started by upended coal stoves.As the search for survivors stretched into the night, a blizzard descended on the port city, heaping misery on a community that had already lost so much.Days later, from deep within the wreckage of the railway station, searchers recovered Coleman’s watch, wallet, pen and telegraph key, all of which are now part of a permanent exhibit at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in downtown Halifax.“You can still see water stains in his wallet,” the museum’s website says. “His watch speaks grimly of the violent forces which descended on Coleman as its crystal and hands are blown away and its back is pounded in as if by hammers. Coleman no doubt died instantly at his telegraph key.”Jim Coleman says the exhibit holds special meaning for him.“Seeing the picture of my grandfather and his personal effects, obviously, it touches you somehow,” he says.last_img read more

Hudsons Bay to close remaining Zellers stores 6400 jobs at stake

TORONTO — The Hudson’s Bay Co. says it will close most of its 64 remaining Zellers Inc. stores in Canada that aren’t being converted to Target stores, affecting up to 6,400 jobs.A spokeswoman for Hudson’s Bay Co. said Thursday the Zellers parent company has been contemplating what to do with the brand since last year, when it sold the majority of the leases for the discount stores to Target Corp.“After a lengthy review and numerous discussions with various parties it became apparent that continuing to operate the Zellers banner in its current form was not viable, particularly given the geographic footprint of the remaining locations,” said spokeswoman Tiffany Bourre.[np-related]Most of the remaining stores will be closed by March 2013, the company said.But Bourre said the company hasn’t ruled out the possibility of maintaining some of the store locations and opening them under another retail banner.Bourre said that Zellers is “considering options” for certain locations, including “rebranding some stores” — a determination that has yet to be made.It did not provide any indications as to which stores, or how many, would remain open.The company said it operates 64 stores that were not acquired by Target, or were already slated for closure. An average Zellers has about 100 employees.A spokeswoman for Walmart Canada wouldn’t comment on whether Canada’s largest retailer is interested in acquiring any of the locations. Target Corp. could not immediately be reached for comment.Target plans to open 125 to 135 stores in Canada. It has purchased the leasehold interests of 189 sites currently operated by Zellers Inc. and it says about $10-million to $11-million will be invested to remodel each facility. read more

CBK holds talks with Indian FM

New Delhi and Colombo also inked agreements, relating to combating international terrorism, drug trafficking, illegal trafficking in persons and double taxation avoidance.Earlier, Sri Lankan Navy shot dead Indian fishermen, arrested them and seized their trawlers for allegedly fishing inside the country’s maritime area, leading to tension between the two countries. India, which once wielded undisputed leverage over the Sri Lankan conflict, maintained a largely hands-off approach because of the concerns of Tamils at home. Earlier on Tuesday Foreign Minister G. L Peiris met Khurshid and said the Sri Lanka government had given clear instructions to the Navy not to open fire and that was being scrupulously observed. The Indian External Affairs Ministry said at the meeting between Mrs. Kumaratunga and the Indian Foreign Minister both sides discussed various bilateral issues. In their meeting, both leaders had placed great emphasis on the safety of the fishermen and the need to ensure that violence was not resorted to under any circumstances.India also urged its southern neighbour to continue dialogue with its Tamil population representatives and hoped that for devolution of power to them.India had agreed to invest $100 million in Sri Lanka to help war refugees return home and rebuild the country’s ravaged north, as New Delhi seeks to engage in the island nation’s post-war reconstruction and retain influence. Former President Chandrika Kumaratunga has met India’s Foreign Minister, Salman Khurshid in New Delhi, the Indian External Affairs Ministry said.The meeting had taken place on Wednesday, a day after the Indian Foreign Minister Sri Lankan Foreign Minister G.L Peiris. The Indian government faced pressure to protect Sri Lankan Tamils, closely linked to about 60 million Tamils in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu.New Delhi is keen to ensure that it retains influence in the island and keeps rivals China and Pakistan at arm’s length.

New openaccess database aims to get waterscarce countries more crop per drop

“Reporting on water productivity is lacking at country level in water scarce regions and this data will be key to creating sustainable agricultural systems in areas with scarce resources,” said Jippe Hoogeveen, project coordinator and technical officer in the Land and Water Division of the UN Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO). According to an FAO press release, currently all countries in North Africa and the Near East suffer from severe water scarcity, with significant consequences for irrigated agriculture, the region’s largest water user – which is expected to intensify as climate change leads to more frequent and longer droughts, severely impacting food production. The aim of the new data portal – to be developed in October – is to collect and analyze satellite information to improve land and water productivity and boost the sustainability of agricultural systems. All information will be openly available for countries and users who need it.Mr. Hoogeveen elaborated: “Remote sensing satellite images offer governments near real-time information regarding the use of natural resources for food growth and production, making assessments and improvements to existing agricultural practices more efficient and cost effective.”While remote sensing technologies have revolutionized the possibilities for assessing land and water productivity through greater coverage and data capture, many countries lack the capacity and resources to analyze and work with this data. Among other things, FAO technical support will assist countries in monitoring land and water productivity, identifying productivity gaps, proposing solutions to reduce these gaps and contributing to a sustainable increase in agricultural production.To allow experts to cross-check results at various levels and make appropriate recommendations for different settings, the new database will be developed at three spatial scales: the continental level over the whole of Africa and Near East; country and river basin level; and irrigation scheme level. “Advanced information and communication technology will play a crucial role in all of this work,” said the project coordinator. “This information will empower those who need it, from SMS messaging for farmers working in water-scarce areas to country experts using more sophisticated applications to assess information on water basin levels.” The four-year project is being financed by the Government of the Netherlands and implemented by FAO in collaboration with the UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education and other partners. Globally, water use has been growing at more than twice the rate of population increase for most of the last century, and an increasing number of regions are reaching the limit at which reliable water services can be delivered. Today, agriculture uses 70 per cent of all freshwater withdrawals worldwide and up to 95 per cent in several developing countries. Growing water scarcity is a major threat to future food security and poverty alleviation, especially in rural areas. In semi-arid regions, increasing numbers of rural poor see water entitlement and access for food production, livestock and domestic purposes to be just as critical as access to primary health care and education.By 2025, 1.8 billion people are expected to be living in countries or regions with “absolute” water scarcity, and two thirds of the world population could be under “stress” conditions. During World Water Week, FAO is also making presentations on its various regional water scarcity initiatives. It is currently leading two projects related to monitoring progresses for the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), including SDG 6, which concerns the world’s water resources.FAO Senior Land and Water Officer Jean-Marc Faurès noted that monitoring water productivity will ultimately enable countries to report on an SDG target, which is of paramount importance in water scarce areas, but also globally. read more

Buttressed by Datsyuk and Kovalchuk (who both left North American hockey in the last five years but are both still good enough to play on most top lines in the NHL), they’ve often decimated their opponents in Pyeongchang, and the OAR team looks as likely as any other to win the gold this weekend. But even if they win it all, it won’t truly count as the kind of Olympic dominance that Russia’s been lacking of late.On top of the the fact that OAR medals don’t count in the national team’s tally, there’s also the matter of never beating the best hockey players the world had to offer. Remember, the Soviet and Unified teams only ever beat groups of amateurs, and although there are plenty of professionals and ex-NHL players skating in South Korea, it would be incorrect to say these Olympics are an exhibition of the globe’s top talent. If the Olympic Athletes from Russia go on to win gold this weekend, they’ll join a long line of champions who beat some pretty good hockey teams — but never quite had to face the best on the planet.Who knows if the NHL and the International Olympic Committee will ever come to terms and allow the sport’s best players to return to the world’s most significant international ice hockey tournament. If not, all-time Russian greats like Ovechkin and Malkin could finish their illustrious careers without ever capturing Olympic gold. And if the NHL stays home again in four years, even a (presumably) restored Team Russia won’t really get a chance to measure itself against the world’s best players.Perhaps Russia will just have to content itself with basking in the on-ice brilliance of president Vladimir Putin: Eight goals by one team might be impressive, but who needs Olympic gold when you have a player who’s capable of netting eight goals by himself? 13Daniel SedinCSweden90.330.9121.1✓ 18Pavel DatsyukCRussia82.129.1111.2 15Chris ProngerDCanada49.669.6119.2✓ What do Sergei Fedorov, Pavel Bure, Pavel Datsyuk, Ilya Kovalchuk, Alex Ovechkin and Evgeni Malkin have in common? They’re all infinitely gifted hockey men from Russia — who’ve never won a gold medal at the Olympics. In fact, no Russian men’s hockey team has ever won gold at the Olympics.That is, of course, slightly disingenuous — between those great Soviet teams of the 1950s, ’60s, ’70s and ’80s, and the Unified Team (made up of players from the just-collapsed USSR) that reached hockey’s mountaintop in the French Alps in 1992, teams from what is now Russia have won an astounding eight Olympic golds. But the Russian Federation has never reached such great heights. In the last six Olympics, the country’s hockey teams have only won two medals: a silver at Nagano in 1998 and a bronze at Salt Lake City in 2002. And this year’s team won’t be the one to end the drought. Although Russian athletes have been playing great, they are officially competing as Olympic Athletes from Russia after a widespread doping scandal led to the country being formally banned from this year’s Winter Olympics. Since these athletes aren’t technically playing under the Russian flag, any medals they win can’t contribute to the country’s medal total. Whatever happens, the Russian anthem won’t be playing in Pyeongchang.That one-in-three rate for acquiring medals of any color at the last six Olympics must be jarring — unacceptable? — for a national team so accustomed to slicing its opponents to bits at international ice hockey tournaments. The Soviets are rightly famous for their dominance at the Olympics, but they also cleaned up at the International Ice Hockey Federation’s Ice Hockey World Championships: Between 1954 and 1991, they won 22 championships, finishing in second on seven more occasions.1They also won bronze five times. And while the Russian Federation team has had some success in the same competition — they’ve won five World Championships2Plus three silver and four bronze. — it doesn’t have the same luster as capturing gold on the world’s biggest winter athletics stage. This quadrennial shortfall must be a disappointment to Russian hockey fans (and their, uh, hockey role-playing president).Russia’s multigenerational stretch of frustration at the Olympics looks more grim when it’s juxtaposed with the success of Canada and Sweden. The best players to come out of each of these two nations in the past two decades — for example, Sidney Crosby, Patrice Bergeron and Jonathan Toews for Canada, and Henrik Zetterberg, Nicklas Lidstrom and Henrik Lundqvist for Sweden — have at least one shiny piece of golden hardware to show for their efforts at the Olympics. Even the Czechs, led by a 25-year-old Jaromir Jagr, grabbed gold at Nagano ’98. Back when the Olympics were played by amateurs, the Soviets were almost unbeatable3Mainly because those Soviet players were amateurs in name only.; not long after the tournament allowed NHL talents to participate, the Russians all but disappeared from the conversation.4A confounding factor here is that the 1988 rule change allowing professional players in the Olympics shortly predated the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991. Just as the quality of competition was improving, the Russian team would have had a smaller pool of talent to draw from, as a number of countries broke from the USSR to become independent. 16Martin St. LouisCCanada87.927.0114.8✓ 4Jarome IginlaRWCanada119.333.8153.1✓ 12Sergei GoncharDRussia68.056.2124.2 11Teemu SelanneRWFinland99.924.6124.5 Point Shares** 17Evgeni MalkinLWRussia93.519.0112.5 read more

Track and Field Ohio State sending 53 athletes for highly competitive Music

Junior Nick Gray will run the men’s 60-meter-dash, 200-meter-dash and 4×400-meter-relay this weekend at the Music City Challenge in Nashville, Tennessee. Credit: Courtesy of Ohio State AthleticsOhio State will open up its roster by sending 53 athletes to Nashville, Tennessee, for the Music City Challenge, a two-day meet filled with tough competition and national implications. There will be 12 events on Friday and Saturday with at least one NCAA national championship qualifier.In the past two meets, Ohio State opted out of sending its full roster. This week, Ohio State is sending its full team, marking the season debuts for several athletes.Men’s previewThe 60-meter dash is filled with highly competitive sprinters who should create a close end result. Ohio State’s junior Nick Gray and senior Zack Bazile, as well as Southern Mississippi’s Cra’vorkian Carson and Memphis’ Davon Demoss, have top times that are separated by just .04 seconds. Carson has the fastest time at 6.64, which ranks 11th overall in the country, while Bazile is the slowest at 6.68, ranked 21st in the nation. The athletes with the top-16 marks will go to the national championship meet.“In the 60 meter, it’s important to focus on body technique, how fast I’m getting out and not focus on what’s going on in the outside lanes,” Gray said. Gray currently has a season-high mark of 6.66. That time would tie him for the last national championship qualifying spot, but that race was not counted by the NCAA. Since that race, Gray has been hampered by small injuries.“My goal for this track meet is to leave healthy and not hurt,” Gray said. Gray said he does not feel pressure to beat his personal record because he is currently more focused on his better events, the 200-meter dash and the 400-meter dash. Gray will make his season debut in the 200-meter dash and will run in 4×400-meter relay. Bazile has primarily been a jumper throughout his collegiate career, but ran a 60-meter-dash in 6.68 seconds two weeks ago.“Zack’s always wanted to run on the track,” assistant coach Joel Brown said. “He has the opportunity to do that this year and it is turning out well for him.”Redshirt sophomore Kendall Sheffield will make his track debut for Ohio State. Sheffield’s personal record in the 60-meter dash is a 6.70. He also plays cornerback for the Ohio State football team. Bazile also is expected to have a big meet outside of the 60-meter dash. He has the farthest long jump by .35 meters heading into this meet. While Bazile set a personal best in triple jump this year, Southern Mississippi’s John Warren has the better mark on the season. In the men’s 800-meter run, Ohio State junior Alexander Lomong has the top time this season. It will be the first 800 of the season for three of Virginia Tech’s runners, all of whom have faster personal records than Lomong.The Buckeyes are having their best season in school history in pole vault. Cole Gorski has the pole vault record a 5.45 meters set last week, and junior Coty Cobb is ranked third all-time (5.35m).They will be facing off against some tough familiar foes. Cincinnati’s Adrian Valles has beaten both Buckeyes and has the third-highest jump in the country at 5.61 meters. Michigan State’s Tim Ehrhardt has a personal record higher than Gorski’s, but Gorski beat Ehrhardt earlier this season.Women’s previewThe weight throw will be a showdown of the top-three collegiate throwers in the country and an Olympian. Junior Sade Olatoye is currently third with a throw of 22.76 meters, behind Cincinnati’s Ann Echikunwoke (23.69) and Mississippi’s Janeah Stewart (23.83). The top three will square off against Gwen Berry, a member of Team USA.Olatoye, Stewart and Echikunwoke also will compete in shot put. Freshman Anavia Battle will run in the 60-meter dash and the 200-meter dash. She is coming off first place finishes in the 60-meter dash (7.45) and 200-meter dash (23.79). Both finishes are the two best times this season for Ohio State. Brown said Battle is doing less weight training than her teammates and is focused more on bodyweight training and explosiveness to stay on track for this meet.Senior Mikaela Seibert has the farthest personal best in triple-jump heading into this meet of all competitors, but Cincinnati’s Irati Mitxelena has the farthest mark of the season. read more

Column Goodbye Mandela Now it is up to us

first_imgIN JUNE 2003, I wrote a letter to Nelson Mandela asking for his help. At the time I was twenty five years old and like so many others, concerned about the recent invasion of Iraq.I wanted Mandela to raise awareness of Ireland’s involvement in what many people believed was an illegal and immoral war. I wanted him to give a message to our leaders, telling them that people everywhere wanted peace, not war.I figured that if I sent my letter by registered post to him at the university and marked it as private, then someone would be obliged to give it to him. Naive perhaps, but I had seen how 100,000 marchers in Dublin didn’t seem to influence our government and thought it was worth a go.The next day I listened to Mandela’s speech online. I was a young man waiting for a leader to represent my voice, and the voices of millions like me. I was looking for hope, and I wasn’t disappointed.SpeechIn his speech that day Mandela talked about the fact that there had been no world war since 1945 because of the United Nations and that “any organisation, any country, any leader, that now decides to sideline the United Nations – that country and it’s leader are a danger to the world”.“And they do so because you are keeping quiet,” Mr Mandela continued, after prolonged applause from the audience. “You are afraid of this country and its leader”he said. Mr Mandela said he could “not keep quiet” and that “all of us must have the courage to stand up and condemn what is wrong, and I am grateful that you have allowed an old man, who is more than 100 years old, to come and address you” he said on what ended up being his last visit to Ireland.I had no idea whether Mr Mandela received my letter, and he didn’t refer specifically to Shannon airport and Ireland’s role in the war, but you could read between the lines. Finally, someone was speaking truth to power, saying what our leaders wouldn’t or couldn’t. Mandela was standing up to the spin doctors and the war mongers. He was using his platform to fearlessly advance the freedom of all people, not just his own.Hope It was a speech that gave me hope and inspiration, a unique moment of light in an Ireland that was often blinkered by the economic boom. Mandela’s speech burst through my frustration and growing cynicism and caused me to commit to making a difference in the world in whatever way I could.Just a few months later I joined with friends and set up the SpunOut.ie youth organisation. Ten years on, and although I’m no longer involved, SpunOut.ie remains an important platform for young people at a time when many are struggling to remain hopeful.It was the example of people like Nelson Mandela that helped inspire me during the inevitable challenges of setting up an organisation and in the work I’ve gone on to do. At that impressionable time in my life Mandela was a beacon, a teacher, and a guide to what is possible.Young people today need similar inspiration. They need leadership and vision beyond the spin and rhetoric that promises them things are changing. They are hungry for inspiration and ideas that redefine conventional politics and cut through a culture dominated byadvertising and fear.Values representedThey want their values to be represented in public life and to be given encouragement and opportunities to be involved in shaping the world around them.Mandela is being celebrated by billions around the world not just because of his remarkable feats in South Africa, but because of what he represents for humanity. He is a symbol for the great human leap forward, of the phenomenal power of the human spirit to triumph over flaws, adversity and injustice.At a time when the world is crying out for courageous leadership, when injustice and suffering is everywhere, Mandela has left us a timely challenge and a call to action. It is up to us to be our own Mandela, to rise up and keep the flame of freedom alive.“Sometimes it falls upon a generation to be great. You can be that generation. Let your greatness blossom”.Ruairi McKiernan is a freelance community worker, campaigner and member of the Council of State.

Microsoft TV remote patent will charge you for skipping adverts

first_imgSome patents that get filed are ridiculous because the functionality they describe is so obvious and commonplace. Others are just down right obnoxious.The latest company to be awarded what I class as an obnoxious patent is Microsoft. It goes under the heading of “Control-based content pricing,” and describes a system where by a user pays a differing amount for watching media on a TV based on what they use their remote to do.The perfect example of how terrible this patent is: it allows for a system that charges you more for skipping adverts when watching specific shows, e.g. a movie. Another example is watching a sporting event and hitting a button to watch a replay. Doing so could incur an additional charge for accessing the replay.While this sounds like a very bad idea, it could end up making content cheaper for those who don’t mind viewing adverts. In fact, a movie could be offered free as long as you don’t fast forward past that shampoo or car commercial. However, it’s more likely we’ll end up paying the same for content and these charges will be on top of that base price as a way of boosting profits.Another example given as part of the patent is using the remote input to earn credit towards watching something else. So watching an advert and responding with input unlocks access (or points?) allowing a movie to be watched for free in the future.Microsoft has pointed out it doesn’t end up using all the ideas it patents. I really hope this one stays as just a patent, and not something we find shipping with the next Xbox media remote.Not to put ideas in Microsoft’s head, but they could take this further with the use of Kinect. If Kinect detects you aren’t paying attention to the screen when those adverts are running, the price could be increased. No thanks.The patent was originally filed in 2004, but only got granted late last year. In those intervening years a lot has happened to make the functionality detailed in the patent more viable, but I think we all pay enough for content as it is.More at GeekWirelast_img read more

Associate banks of SBI to unveil voluntary retirement schemes soon

first_imgThe associate banks of State Bank of India are likely to unveil voluntary retirement schemes (VRS) for their employees soon as part of the proposed merger with the parent bank — SBI.According to a report in the Economic Times, the board of State Bank of Hyderabad (SBH) has already approved the VRS and other associate banks are likely take the scheme before their respective boards in the next few days.Though details of the schemes are not known yet, the report quoted sources saying that all associate bank employees opting for VRS would get similar benefits. “A good chunk of them are likely to go for VRS as there have been apprehensions across levels about their pecking order under the State Bank of India,” the report quoted officials as saying.While SBI has nearly 2.02 lakh employees, its associate banks have a total headcount of 70,000. State Bank of Hyderabad, which is the largest among all the five associate banks, has around 18,000 employees with State Bank of Patiala having a staff count of around 15,000.The report also said that VRS in associate banks would help SBI in putting a cap on its incremental rise in expenses, which has seen an uptrend in recent years. SBI’s staff expense stood at Rs 6,853 crore in the second quarter ending September, 11 percent over the same period of last fiscal. Its pension liabilities are pegged at around Rs 3,500 crore.Earlier, managing director of SBI Rajnish Kumar had said that merger of associate banks would not be delayed due to demonetisation process and it would be completed by 2016-17. The central government approved the merger proposal in June this year in order to turn SBI into one of the global biggies in the financial world. Meanwhile, bank unions and officials have raised their concerns regarding the efficacy of merger on financial health of those banks.last_img read more

Bionic Eye Lets Blind Woman Experience Vision

first_imgBack in the day, if a person were to lose a limb or one of their senses then they were considered useless and there was no hope for them; but now, technology has brought the world so far forward with prosthetics and hearing aids. We’ve taken another huge step forward in providing sight for the blind through this new bionic eye prototype.The researchers of Bionic Vision Australia developed this exciting new technology with the help of their very passionate patient, Ms. Dianne Ashworth. Her “pre-bionic eye” consists of a surgical implant made up of 24 electrodes placed behind the retina by the surgical team at the Centre of Eye Research Australia. Last month, once the eye had recovered from the medical procedure, it was switched on; when the implant provided an electronic stimulus to the eye, Ms. Ashworth exclaimed,I didn’t know what to expect, but all of a sudden, I could see a little flash…it was amazing. Every time there was stimulation there was a different shape that appeared in front of my eye.This is fantastic progress for the project as they continue on with Ms. Ashworth by trying to understand how the brain is interpreting the shapes she is seeing before they take the next huge step in implanting a full device. The current prototype is made up of the 24 electrodes within the retina connecting to a device at the behind her ear using a small lead wire, then the device behind her ear is connected to an external machine, which provides the electrical stimulus. The next iteration of the implant will be comprised of 98 and then 1024 electrodes that will increase clarity within the image.This is such a significant step towards a solution for people of considerable vision loss, and who knows where this technology can take us next? There could bionic ears and noses in the mix eventually, and bionic people will be just an ordinary thing in the bright future ahead. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.last_img read more
