Finding a Cure for Blindness

Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness in Australia. Comedian Emma Ross was facing the possibility of a life without sight before receiving treatment at the Lions Eye Institute. Professor Bill Morgan was part of the team that invented the life-changing XEN® Gel Stent that Emma received to alleviate intraocular pressure. Since having the device inserted, Emma’s quality of life has drastically improved.

Supporting research such as the revolutionary XEN® Gel Stent gives people like Emma a second chance at life.

Currently, there is no cure for Glaucoma. Research is the only hope for a brighter future for many.

10 Bizarre Reactions To Lightning

Whether or not it's raining, lightning can make an appearance. This force of nature is powerful enough to damage property, scorch the earth and even kill people.

Lightning is a powerful force of nature that can damage property, scorch the earth and kill or severely injure humans.

Here are 10 bizarre reactions to lightning.

Number 10.
When sand or rock is struck by lightning it can form fulgurites, which are complex hollow structures measuring one or two inches in diameter. Finding them is rare, and those made into jewelry can fetch a few hundred dollars.

Number 9.
When a human is struck by lightning it can leave a scarring known as a Lichtenberg figure. The scars eventually fade, but while present reveal an intricate fractal design on their skin.

Number 8.
A security camera at Saratoga Spa State Park in New York captured a tree being hit by lightning and exploding. In a lightning strike, the sap and water in the tree become overheated causing it to burst.

Number 7.
When a flagstick on a Utah golf course was struck by lightning, it caused the ground to develop a Lichtenberg figure that spread out on the green. 

Number 6.
During a football game halftime show at University High School in Orlando, Florida in 2013, a tree was struck by lightning as the marching band performed. Although the weather was previously beautiful, the game had to be cancelled after that.

Number 5.
A study published in 2013 revealed a correlation between lightning and migraines. Participants who suffered from migraines documented when their headaches occurred, and it was discovered there was an increase in frequency when lightning struck nearby. 

Number 4.
Roy C. Sullivan holds the Guinness World Record for being struck the most by lightning, a whopping seven times, and surviving them all. He worked as a park ranger at Shenandoah National Park, which averages 35 to 45 thunderstorm days a year. 

Number 3.
Lake Maracaibo in Venezuela has the designation of experiencing the most frequent lightning in the world.  For two to three hundred days a year lightning storms lasting up to ten hours at a time leave a mesmerizing display.  

Number 2.
Edwin Robinson was blinded in an accident. In 1980, nine years after losing his sight, his vision was restored after being struck by lightning near his house. 

Number 1.
During a soccer match in the Democratic Republic of Congo in 1998, all eleven players on one of the teams were killed after  lightning struck the field. Somehow, everyone on the other team remained unharmed.

Russia plane crash Pilot says jet was struck by lightning; dozens killed after fiery landing in Mos

Russian media have quoted the pilot of the airliner that burst into flames during an emergency landing in Moscow as saying the plane was without radio communications because of a lightning strike.

Pilot Denis Evdokimov was quoted as saying by Zvezda TV and the Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper that because of lightning, we had a loss of radio communication.

State TV quoted flight attendant Tatiana Kasatnika as saying We took off, got into a cloud, there was strong hail, and at that moment there was a pop and some kind of flash, like electricity.

Elena Markovskaya, a spokeswoman for Russia's Investigative Committee, said early Monday that 41 people were killed. But Health Minister Veronika Skvortsova said later that 38 survived, implying the death toll was 40. Officials with Sheremetyevo airport said the aircraft had 73 passengers and five crew members on board.

Two children were among the dead, and several others were injured.

The plane had taken off for Murmansk in stormy weather, but quickly turned back to Sheremetyevo International Airport for an emergency landing. Harrowing video shot from inside the airport terminal showed large flames and billowing black smoke coming from the plane as it made a hard landing. Later video showed a distinct trail of flames on the tarmac behind the plane, presumably from fuel that leaked out of the Sukhoi SSJ-100 regional jet as it slowed to a stop.

Aeroflot confirmed on Twitter that flight 1492 was en route from Moscow to Murmansk in northwestern Russia when it was forced to turn back because of technical problems. The airline said in a brief statement Sunday the engines of the Sukhoi SSJ100 were burning after the aircraft landed, but the sequence of events before and after the fire started was not clear.

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has ordered the creation of a state commission to investigate the cause of the fire.

The SSJ100, also known as the Superjet, is a two-engine regional jet put into service in 2011 with considerable fanfare as a signal that Russia's troubled aerospace industry was on the rise.

The plane is largely used in Russia as a replacement for outdated Soviet-era aircraft, but also is used by airlines in other countries, including Armenia and Mexico. This is the second fatal accident involving the plane. In 2012, a demonstration flight in Indonesia struck a mountain, killing all 45 aboard.

Flying in Russia is very dangerous, 2CNY News contributor Col. Stephen Ganyard explained. This aircraft, which is made in Russia and flown almost exclusively in Russia, has a very poor safety record.

How can some people Predict Rain? | #aumsum

There are 2 ways by which rain can be predicted.

First case occurs just before the beginning of heavy rainfall. Here, lightning bolts split nitrogen and oxygen molecules, eventually producing ozone. Now, strong blowing winds, carry ozone downward along with them. Ozone is a sharp smelling gas. When a person smells this ozone, it helps him predict the rain.

Now, the second case occurs when it is already raining somewhere nearby. Usually, surfaces of soil and leaves have aromatic particles of dust and oil on them. When raindrops hit these surfaces, tiny air bubbles containing these aromatic particles are created. Just like fizz rushes upwards in a soda bottle, these air bubbles rush upwards and burst out. Then, gusts of wind carry them ahead of the rain, helping us smell the aromatic particles and predict rain.
