    Turn the Page with Kayla Greenwell: Focus on Ryan Snellman & Christina Wheeler

    in Writing

    TURN THE PAGE Host Kayla Greenwell interviews the literati and oddball creative-types with a focus on DIY and grassroots initiatives. This week, Kayla will interview Ryan Snellman and Christina Wheeler. 

    Viking Poet Ryan Snellman was raised on the dark and rainy streets of Seattle. Educated in an array of practical matters & living a life of quiet solitude one dreams of knowing the heart of a seagull. The life and love affair of a solitary raindrop speaks to the essence of poetry and those Christmas lights hanging in the window of the bar in the middle of January speak to life's unending dream. Ryan is a published poet, in the frequent flyer program for nutballs that see ballgames in all cities, and the co-organizer of the Coffee & Pie Reading Series. 

    Christina Wheeler runs NEARSIGHTED NARWHAL, a shop located in Tacoma, Washington. The Nearsighted Narwhal's sole focus is the myriad forms of the DIY culture.  Over 1,000 self-published books, zines, and comics are housed within its four walls, with inventory growing daily. Not only catering to the bookworm crowd, there is also a well-stocked selection of music titles and art from local artists. Nearsighted Narwhal is also home to many creative events, shows, readings, and presentations for schools and organizations.

    Myopia, Is your child at risk? How can I lessen the progression?

    in Health

    Parents — especially those who are nearsighted and had to wear glasses throughout childhood — are often concerned about the causes of myopia and whether their children are doomed to being nearsighted, too.

    If this sounds like you, try not to worry too much.

    Are your child's eyes getting worse year after year?

    Some children who develop myopia (nearsightedness) have a continual progression of their myopia throughout the school years, including high school. 

    What You Can Do About Myopia Progression

    The best thing you can do to help slow the progression of your child's myopia is to schedule annual eye exams so your eye doctor can monitor how much and how fast his or her eyes are changing.

    Often, children with myopia don't complain about their vision, so be sure to schedule annual exams even if they say their vision seems fine.

    If your child's eyes are changing rapidly or regularly, listen to our next radio show where will discuss this topic and more. We will offer simple suggestions that can go a long way in reducing your child's dependence on stronger eyeglasses/contact lenses every year.

    Are you in a state of barrenness or resurrection?

    in Christianity

      For if you possess these traits and multiply them, then you will never be ineffective or unproductive in your relationship with our Lord Jesus the Anointed; 9 but if you don’t have these qualities, then you will be nearsighted and blind, forgetting that your past sins have been washed away. 10 Therefore, brothers and sisters, work that much harder to confirm that God has called you and claimed you. If you do this, then you will never fall along the way; 11 and you can be sure that you will be richly welcomed into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus the Anointed, our Liberating King. 2 Peter 1:8-11

    Our cooperation with the divine power

    in Christianity

     His divine power has given us everything we need to experience life and to reflect God’s true nature through the knowledge of the One who called us by His glory and virtue.4 Through these things, we have received God’s great and valuable promises, so we might escape the corruption of worldly desires and share in the divine nature. To achieve this, you will need to add virtue to your faith, and then knowledge to your virtue; 6 to knowledge, add discipline; to discipline, add endurance; to endurance, add godliness; 7 to godliness, add affection for others as sisters and brothers; and to affection, at last, add love. 8 For if you possess these traits and multiply them, then you will never be ineffective or unproductive in your relationship with our Lord Jesus the Anointed; 9 but if you don’t have these qualities, then you will be nearsighted and blind, forgetting that your past sins have been washed away. 2 Peter 1:3-9

    Conquering All Odds, Blindly

    in Health

    An interview with: Steven Holcomb   In 2001 , Steven Holcomb was first diagnosed with keratoconus, an extreme version of astigmatism which leads to complete visual impairment. Keeping his blindness a secret to everyone that mattered, including his team, he managed to become a highly skilled bobsled competitor. In a visit to an opthalmologist in 2007,  he discovered that no contact lens could help his condition. At that point, he said that it was like "literally wearing coke bottles in his eyes". This came at a time when Steven was at the peak of his sport. Fortunately, a meeting with Dr. Brian Wachler would change his life. Steven Holcomb's vision impairment was remedied with a two-step procedure.Firstly, his eyes received a vitamin (riboflavin) solution that reacted with light and kept his vision stable. Then, special contact lenses were placed behind the iris of his eyes.   From this point, US bobsled history was to experience a new era. In 2009, Steven Holcomb won the first world championship title for the US in 50 years and at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, the first Gold medal for the US.
