The author Andrew Curry thinks that workers today are unfulfilled because they would rather work a job they do not like and earn more money than work a job that they are passionate about and earn less. He also talks about how people seem to work more than relax in today's age like when he says “instead of working less, our hours have stayed steady or risen.” (Curry, Kirszner and Mandell 399) the evidence that he uses to connect his view is the amount of people who complain about their jobs. Nowadays everyone knows a person that constantly complains about his or her job but they still work that same job because of the financial gain. Many people today hate the job they work but that same job is the reason they have a car, house etc. furthermore
The significance of the experience of transition lies in individuals gaining a deeper understanding of themselves and others. JC Burke’s prose fiction text, ‘The Story of Tom Brennan’, focuses on the transition of the Brennan family, and Tom in particular, from feelings of guilt, anger, depression and despair to acceptance, reconciliation and optimism, in the aftermath of Daniel’s car accident that caused the deaths of two innocent teenagers and the quadriplegia of his cousin, Finn. The other related text, ‘Up’, a fantasy animated film, written by Bob Peterson, reveals Carl’s transition from denying the death of his wife and regretting not fulfilling their dream of moving to Paradise Falls to unexpectedly making new friends who help him accept the passing of his wife. Both texts and my visual representation reflect the protagonists’ deeper understanding of themselves and others as a result of the transition.
The Brennans were a fairly well like family in Mumbilli. That was up until Daniel, the eldest son, crashed his car under the influence of alcohol that killed two of his friends and rendered his cousin Fin a quadriplegic. The Story of Tom Brennan follows the lives of Daniel’s family after the incident and the amount of pain and suffering they went through. The story has a heavy focus on Daniel’s younger brother and year eleven student Tom and his life with all of the torment and pain. “Everything we do in life affects others.” (pg 131) Daniel’s actions on the night of the crashed changed the lives of his family forever.

If you are at risk for developing cataracts later in life or know someone who is beginning to develop them, then you may dread the time when you are the person you love has to go under the knife to have them removed. Although traditional cataract surgery is very safe, many people simply fear it because the thought of having their eye cut with a scalpel just sounds scary. There is now a cataract-removal surgery that allows doctors to skip the scalpel, and another treatment still in development will one day make removing cataracts completely non-surgical.

At the beginning of this case study, a woman in her forties presented with symptoms of dry eye alongside numerous dysfunctions in her right side facial movement and sensation. The dry eye symptoms were causing her discomfort and the facial dysfunction consisted of an extended time between blinks, incomplete right eye closure, forehead smoothing and drooping of her mouth. When evaluating this patient’s symptoms, it seems that the problems relating to dry eye are very likely secondary to the facial dysfunction that is visibly apparent. Specifically the fact that the patient has reduced blinking activity and is suffering from lagophthalmos, incomplete eyelid closure, would lead to a deterioration and lack of replenishment of the tear film layer
Do you wear contacts? Well, when I was a freshman in high school my mother finally let me get contacts as long as I promised to take care of them. I thought all this meant was that I would destroy them or lose them I had no idea what it meant to "take care" of contacts. To my surprise, there were tons of rules. The eye doctor said to make sure I did not wear them to bed and to make sure I cleaned them with an enzymatic cleaner at least every few days. As a teenager, I did not really know what the cleaner was or what it did and honestly, I didn 't think about it much as an adult either until I started reading this chapter. After reading the chapter I decided to do some research into the enzymatic cleaner I have been useing since I was 14 and what it does.
For Rick Dawson, that Thursday night was just like any other. He was home alone as usual, playing video games when he heard his dog barking in the backyard. *That damn dog*, he thought. *Shut the fuck up, Rocky!* He ignored it for a while afterwards, but when the dog let out a loud screech, he realized something was wrong. He abandoned the video game and made his way through the kitchen and to the back door. "Rocky?" He called out as he exited the home. It was pitch black out there, quiet as well. If it wasn't for the sound of crickets and owls, it would had been completely silent.
Out of every wicked, awful thing about the zombie apocalypse, running out of contacts has proven the most dangerous. Every week rotting, undead corpses that smell like an upside down cemetery try to bash in my brains and gorge themselves upon the fatty, pink tissue inside my skull. My food rations now consist of freeze dried jerky, which I raided from a nearby astronaut training camp, and squirrel. Mosquitoes swarm my camp and feast upon my blood so often that I look like a chicken pox victim. And although all of those scenarios make my life a constant inferno of frustration and impending death, running out of my prescription contacts makes all of my other tribulations seem like paradise.
