China eye-gouge victim gets artificial eye

Sep 10 2013, 10:36am CDT | by IANS

Beijing, Sep 10 (IANS) A six-year-old boy whose eyes were gouged out in a recent attack received an artificial eye Tuesday in a transplant operation, Xinhua reported.

Beijing, Sep 10 — A six-year-old boy whose eyes were gouged out in a recent attack received an artificial eye Tuesday in a transplant operation, Xinhua reported.

Guo Bin underwent the surgery at C-MER Dennis Lam Eye Hospital in Shenzhen city of China's Guangdong province, which is run by Hong Kong doctor Dennis Lam.

An artificial eye was placed in the right eye socket of the boy, who was lured into a field by a woman Aug 24 in China's Shanxi province, where the woman gouged out the boy's eyes.

The suspect was later identified as the boy's aunt. She jumped into a well near her home and died Aug 30.

Doctors used autologous fat transfer on Guo's left eye instead of an artificial eye transplant because there was not enough tissue to support the eye and the area had a number of scars, according to Dennis Lam.

Scleral shells, a type of ocular prosthesis, are expected to be placed in four to six weeks to give the appearance of normal eyes, he said.

Dennis Lam was optimistic about the boy's recovery and said he could produce tears normally when he recovers.

The hospital will train the boy to use a sensory navigation tool by the end of this year, which he will be able to use to walk independently, according to the doctor.

The cost of the operation and future rehabilitation is about $50,000, which will be wholly exempted by the hospital.

C-MER (Shenzhen) Dennis Lam Eye Hospital, which opened March 21 this year, is the first solely Hong Kong-funded hospital in the Chinese mainland.

The boy's tragic experience has led to national concern. His family has received more than one million yuan ($162,085) in donations, according to media reports.

Real estate mogul and conservative provocateur Donald Trump has a concise, clear message for 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney: You “blew it” in the last election, so don’t even try to run for president again. “No. I don’t think he should run. He had his chance and he blew it,” Trump told Breitbart News during a phone interview on Tuesday. “He had a great chance of winning. He should have won.

Friends of the Devil: US-Iran Ties Beyond a Nuclear Deal

Oct 21 2014 9:01pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Shaytân-e Bozorg: The Great Satan. Ayatollah Khomeini first bestowed this sobriquet upon the United States during the 1979 revolution in Iran. In 2002, President George W. Bush returned the favor when he cast Iran as part of an "Axis of Evil." The time for this vitriol has passed and its utility is nil. It is time for a new approach. As the November 24 deadline for a comprehensive nuclear a ...

Embarrassing economists commit malpractice

Oct 21 2014 6:36pm CDT | Source: WND

So as to give some perspective, I’m going to ask readers for their guesses about human behavior before explaining my embarrassment by some of my fellow economists. Suppose the prices of ladies jewelry rose by 100 percent. What would you predict would happen to sales? What about a 25 or 50 percent price increase? I’m going to guess that the average person would predict that sales would fall. Would you make the same prediction about auto sales if cars’ prices rose by 100 percent or 25 or 50 ...
