Professor builds sight device

Everything around you is dark. You can’t see anything. You’re blind.

Then, imagine a device that’s no larger than a strand of hair that could help someone who had no sight, see. With the use of a micro-engine, an artificial eye could focus and relay images to the brain.

New organization is about fun, laughs

Invaluable linemen deserve credit
They work hard in the trenches, and they don’t mind it one bit

“The only people who realize they are out there are family, friends and the line coach,” offensive line coach Eddie Williamson said. “And if they have a girlfriend, then her too.”

Movie review
‘Radio’ boasts heartwarming messsage, great performances

There are two reasons why many have already decided not to watch the film, “Radio.” The first reason is that it was produced by Disney, a studio infamous for its ability to take a perfectly good plot and turn it into a super-sappy, feel-good movie with a predictable Hollywood ending. The second reason is because it stars Cuba Gooding Jr., an actor whose career went from the unforgettable “show me the money” guy in “Jerry Maguire” to the cheesy dentist-who-talks-to-dogs-guy in the movie “Snow Dogs” (which coincidentally was also a Disney film).
