I've been struggling with eyestrain a lot lately. Not surprising since I am on the computer or a screen of some sort nearly all my waking hours. I even went and had some "workstation bifocals" made after a recent eye exam brought on my my eyestrain. They're made for reading and computer use.
There is some great advice in this video. I gotta take breaks more often.
"A whole month with nothing but a Chromebook to use for writing, browsing, image editing, emailing, and communicating. It wasn't easy, but it was easier than I imagined."
Not sure why the summary said "It wasn't easy". His big complaint in the article is that he couldn't use Skype and the terminal was too limited. Other than that, he seemed pretty pleased.
I admit I too wish the terminal did more, like a full fledged terminal in Linux does. However, I've never liked Skype so I really don't care there is no Skype. If I really had to video chat (ugh!) I'd use Hangouts.
This is convoluted. A man who set an 8 year old boy on fire in 1998, can be charged as an adult after the victim died in 2011 from injuries sustained in the attack.
"Bond argued that the case should not be transferred to adult court because under state law in 1998, a juvenile had to be at least 14 years old for a capital felony offense case to be transferred to adult court. The law was changed in 1999 to lower the age to 10.
Prosecutors said the crime of murder did not take place until 2011, well after the law was changed. But Bond said the law couldn't be applied retroactively to Collins."
