Everyone who’s not a scientist always seems so shocked that I can’t find meaningful employment in spite of having an advanced degree in theoretical physics, so you know what? Fuck it.
From now on, I’m just going to tell everyone that I had my physics license suspended after I accidentally used the Large Hadron Collider to rip a hole in the fabric of the time-space continuum.

One of the problems with Braille is that it’s typically printed in specialist books aside from the copies created for sighted people, meaning that those with sight difficulties can’t borrow their friends’ books and need to seek out the bookstores and libraries that cater for them. In the past, we’ve seen projects such as Thailand’sMr. Light and Mr. Dark — which uses special typography to enable the blind and non-blind to read the same book. Now the FingerReader initiative from MIT provides visually impaired readers with a wearable ring that can scan written text and read it out loud. READ MORE…
Guys. Science has developed a talking ring that allows the blind to read books.

**Please take the time to read my case, it would me a lot to me.**
Hello! My name is Amber, or Rue, as some of you may know me by. I am a 22 year old girl living on my own in Connecticut.
I moved to Connecticut from California 4 years ago to escape a very bad situation with my family. I haven’t spoken to them much since and we are not on good terms. I cannot return home, nor would I ever want to.
Since I have been on my own I have lived in homeless shelters, friend’s homes and I have rented rooms from various shady people. Now, I live with a compulsive hoarder in a small room mostly filled with her stuff. I have been living here since March of 2013. I work 40+ hours a week as an assistant manager at a Dunkin’ Donuts and also attend school two days a week (7 hours both days). I am currently looking for a second job. I pay monthly health and dental insurance, my phone bill, rent, medical bills, etc. I also pay for transportation when I cannot walk to work since I do not have a car. I try my hardest to walk to work when I can because I cannot afford to spend money on cabs, but sometimes it is too cold at 5am in the winter to walk or the sidewalks are piled with snow. I am desperately trying to conserve money whenever I can and I have started a savings account to keep money aside.
The woman I live with doesn’t have A/C in the summer nor does she have heat in the winter. I live in Connecticut where it snows and gets to be VERY cold, especially during the night. I have a low tolerance to the cold and it effects my heart negatively. She also does not have a working fridge, stove or toilet. I am unable to keep food in the house because I cannot refrigerate or cook it so I end up eating a lot of my meals at my friend’s house when I am invited. If I eat at home it is usually just chips or cookies.
The woman who owns the house also has three cats. The cats do not use the litter box, likely because it goes uncleaned for weeks. As a result the pets urinate throughout the house, including in the bathtub and on my clothing in my room. I am constantly bleaching the tub before I shower and washing my clothes over and over again. I have asked the owner to please keep my door shut to prevent this but I have come home many times to find my door wide open and cats in my room.
The cats also kill many small rodents such as mice, rats and squirrels which they have dragged in from outside or have actually found and killed in the house. When I have brought this to the attention of the home owner she was not at all interested and told me not to bother cleaning it up because the cats like to “play” with the dead animals. These are just a few of the examples highlighting the gross environment I live in.
I can no longer tolerate it mentally and physically. I have been diagnosed with severe Clinical Depression and PTSD; my psychiatrist said moving out of this house would most definitely help improve my depression (obviously not cure it, but make it a little bit more tolerable). I also have a lot of health issues, one being a problem with my heart which is made worse by the mold, dust and cat dander in the house as I am allergic to them. I have included pictures of the house that I took recently. This is actually the cleanest it has been in a while considering she had people over so she had straigtened it up a bit.
Unfortunately, there is absolutely no where else for me to go. I am desperately trying to move before winter hits, but between all my bills I cannot save enough to pay for the required safety deposit and first months rent. I have gone and visited many apartments, and it always comes down to me not being able to get enough money together. I know I can pay the monthly rent, it’s just a matter of saving up enough for the first month and deposit before winter.
I am asking for donations to help me reach my goal and escape this horrible living situation before I am stuck here for the winter. Any amount of donated money is greatly appreciated and all the money is going directly to my savings account where I am already started to put aside whatever I can as well.
Thank you so much for reading.
I will gladly provide any proof needed and answer questions.
I have a gofundme account set up here: http://www.gofundme.com/fpyqog
Even a signal boost or anything would be greatly appreciated, thank you so much again!
Please take sometime to read through this it would mean a lot, Amber is a sweet great person who should NOT be living in a dump like this, she’s very hard working and had endured so much but she can’t pull this off on her own. She needs to move out that place by winter or it’ll be significantly difficult for her to cope with her living situation.
If you cannot donate, at least reblog this post and pass it around, I’m not good with words but I’m pretty sure she’d appreciate any type of support she gets.
Experts to promote wild lynx effect for Scotland
Efforts to “rewild” parts of Scotland could involve the reintroduction of Eurasian lynx, according to some conservationists. Trees for Life said the predator could “play a crucial top-down regulatory role in ecosystems” by helping to control red and roe deer numbers.
The charity’s Alan Watson Featherstone and author George Monbiot are due to speak to MSPs on “rewilding”.The men will later address a conference at Edinburgh University.
Rewilding is an effort, supported by various conservation groups, to encourage native species of fauna and floral to flourish.
In a statement, Forres-based Trees for Life said the reinstatement of lynx could help to better control wild deer, which feed on young trees.
The charity said the main impact of lynx would likely be in disturbing deer populations, causing these animals to move more frequently so that their grazing was less concentrated in specific areas.
Trees for Life added: “The lynx - already reintroduced to areas of Europe such as the Alps and Jura mountains - offers little threat to sheep. It is a specialist predator of roe deer, a species which has multiplied in Britain in recent years and which holds back the natural regeneration of trees through intensive browsing.”
