No ‘Rainbow Families’: Canadian Fertility Clinic Bans Patient From Using Non-White Donor – 27 July 2014

RT logoA single Canadian woman, who sought in vitro fertilization in the only local clinic in Calgary, has been prohibited from using donors of a different ethnicity to avoid “creating rainbow families.”

The 38-year old woman, who requested to use only her first name, Catherine, told the Calgary Herald that “everything went downhill” when last March she learned that she could only use sperm, eggs or embryos from donors who were white, like her.

“I was absolutely floored,” she told the newspaper.

When asked why she did not want to choose somebody of her own “cultural background,” Catherine said there were many reasons why.

​‘I Can Now Climb Trees’: 6Yo Kid Gets Prosthetic Arm From 3D Printer – 27 July 2014

A 6 year-old boy from Florida born with right arm deficiency has received a prosthetic replacement. Now climbing a tree and catching a ball will be easier for him. Students from Florida University made it on a 3D printer for just $350 in just 8 weeks.

Help for little Alex Pring, missing his right arm from just above the elbow, came from students at the University of Central Florida. An engineering doctoral student, Albert Manero, heard about the boy’s needs and decided to recruit a team of students to create a solution for the boy.

“I mean, I’m me. So I don’t have an arm,” little Alex said. “I still try real hard to do things like other kids using what I’ve got. But it’s getting harder the more I grow,” according to the official website of University of Central Florida.

The arm and part of the hand were made on a 3D printer. They run with off-the-shelf servos and batteries that are activated by the electromyography muscle energy in Alex’s bicep.

Lucas – Poem: A Fire Burning – 27 July 2014

Logo Lucas_square_wordsA fire is burning inside. A fire wild.

Nothing can extinguish the flame, perceptions of pain.

A fire is burning inside. A fire absorbing your own light.

Nothing can take away the heat if you still will be a cheat.

 

A fire is burning inside. A fire tired.

You’re moving into despair as your vision is contraire.

A fire is burning inside. A fire tired.

Your senses remain stuck in same blame.

 

A fire is burning inside. A fire becoming light.

A change in perception showed the light.

A fire is burning inside. A fire is light.

A perspective changed into transforming all.

 

A fire is burning inside. It is just a light.

Nothing is like it is. Change is universal bliss.

A fire is burning inside. It is just a light.

Knowing it is all you create.

 

A fire is burning inside. It is always bright.

A light through your eyes showing truth.

There is only light and no fire burning inside.

Fire is light. Transformation inside.

 

Love and light,

Lucas
