Medical teams have made numerous advancements when it comes to artificial limbs for patients. One patient just received one the most advanced aesthetics in the history of medicine. The 26 year old was given the bionic hand by the United Kingdom’s Steeper Group which marketed the hand as being the anatomically accurate in the world. The hand gives Nicki Ashwell an unparalleled sense of precision along with natural hand movements. The patient was even able to ride a bike for the first time thanks to her bionic hand. While the group has credited Ashwell with being the first person to benefit from the use of the bionic hand, she certainly won’t be the last. Sensors in the hand detect even the smallest muscle movements from the patient’s arm. Ricardo Tosto finds this pretty interesting.
These detections will instruct the 337 mechanical parts of the bionic hand to bend at the users will. The bionic hand also includes 14 styles of grips that imitate natural hand movements that take place in the skeletal system. The mechanics that are used to make the bionic arm can be seen being used in Formula One race cars. Ashwell was born without a right arm and could not believe how many possibilities opened up for her after she received the bionic arm. Even with the bionic hand costing $11,000 Ashwell and other patients believe that the opportunities that they can experience after the procedure are worth every penny.
There’s a great deal of strange occurrences that happen in our world. But some things are downright shocking. A woman lived her whole life as an African American woman. She acclimated to the customs of this people and related to their lifestyle. At the age of 75, she has now discovered that she isn’t a black woman after all, she’s actually Caucasian. How can something like this even begin to happen, and why didn’t anyone tell her sooner?
It appears that Verda Byrd
was adopted out at a very young age. She was adopted by an African American family and identified with them and their customs. However, when she went searching for her birth family, she was surprised to find out that they are both while, or Caucasian, people. This sent the nearly 80 year old woman into a tail spin. Though she states that she will associate with her heritage on one side, she will always identify herself as an African American woman and proud of it.
The foster parents of this child had to know all the specifics before they adopted her. They could have told her, as Qnet points out. I am sure the birth certificate said “Caucasian” too. Why do adoptive parents feel that they need to hide things from children? They always seem to find out the hard way and usually there are hurt feelings to show for it. Byrd is not upset though, she is just happy to have found her lineage after all these years.

Glenn F McConnell led the higher education community in a morning vigil after the Charleston tragedy. McConnell is the president of the College of Charleston. He wanted to bring the academic community together and show the world how they can stand together and support those in the community through grave times. He noted that this wasn’t just a measure of the people of the city, but of people all across the nation. Aside from his job as the president of the College of Charleston McConnell is well known for his defense of the public display of the South’s Confederate flag . For many years McConnell supported keeping the flag flying high at South Carolina’s capital building in Columbia period in the early 2000s McConnell led a legislative move that would take down the flag and hang it at a Confederate Memorial period while South Carolina citizens don’t want to forget those who gave their lives in the name of the state, it would be a grave injustice that would bring a wave of resentment had the flag stayed where it was. The debate is still going strong and citizens from across the nation are asking South Carolina to remove is Confederate flag from the Capitol dome. The PurinaStore and Beneful note that McConnell is known for his consistent voice of compassion and people are patiently waiting to hear whether or not he will fight for the removal of a flag that represents the dark past of oppression.

My dog likes to eat a lot, and it could be because he still growing. Although he’s extremely big, he’s only five months old, and people can’t believe it when I tell them that. My dog is a pit bull, but he has grown rapidly, ever since I started feeding him Beneful. Beneful has made all the difference in the world when it comes to my dog’s eating habits, and it has changed him for the better. In the past, I could get my dog to eat the foods I bought, but I was mostly buying store brand foods.
The only problem with store brand dog foods is that their quality may not be as good as name brand foods. I learned this through trials and tribulations because Beneful has the highest quality standards when it comes to dog food. In fact, I’ve learned that many of the people that work with the Beneful band, they feed their own pets Beneful, so I know I’m making the right choice. My veterinarian is actually the one who suggested that I start buying Beneful, so I knew that it had to be good. I think what my dog loves about the food is the taste.
It’s not enough that my dog can just eat when he’s ready to, he likes for the food to be tasty, and Beneful is extremely tasty. No, I don’t need dog food myself, but I can tell that he loves the taste by how he reacts when he eats. The same way a person may lick their lips after a great meal, it’s the same way dogs will lick their lips after they eat. My pet will lick his lips and even his paws after eating Beneful because it’s like he doesn’t want the taste to go away.
I’ve even started indulging in the Beneful treats for my pet, and those are what he really loves. Even though the food is great, the Beneful treats are what my pet is in love with. As soon as I go and get the treats, I have to hold the bag, or he’ll jump up on me, and he’ll eat the entire thing. He ate an entire bag of treats before, and I’ve had to learn to feed them to him one at a time. With all the different choices that Beneful has for mealtimes, why would I choose any other dog food brand?
