Many people are hesitant to deal with their hearing loss, because they feel that hearing aids are bulky and unsightly. However, for several years we have been able to offer "invisible in the canal", or "iic" hearing aids, and our selected manufacturers continue to strive to make them smaller and smaller. These iic hearing aids are smaller than the previously available "completely in the canal" or "CIC" models. At London Hearing Aids, we offer the finest selection of Invisible Hearing Aids from Oticon, Starkey, Phonak, Unitron, Siemens and ReSound, namely the Oticon iic, Starkey Soundlens, Phonak nano, Unitron micro, Siemens iMini and ReSound Verso iic. You can find out more about them here: http://www.londonhearingaids.co.uk/Invisible/invisible-hearing-aids-call-0203-397-9787-nano-iic-micro-soundlens.html

StarPoet Newsletter XV:XVI (rising) 
Lisa Jain Thompson, Starpoet.com (20 April 2014 C.E.) 

Easter 1916 (final stanza) 
by William Butler Yeats 

Too long a sacrifice
Can make a stone of the heart. 
O when may it suffice?
That is Heaven's part, our part 
To murmur name upon name, 
As a mother names her child 
When sleep at last has come 
On limbs that had run wild. 
What is it but nightfall?
No, no, not night but death; 
Was it needless death after all?
For England may keep faith 
For all that is done and said. 
We know their dream; enough
To know they dreamed and are dead; 
And what if excess of love 
Bewildered them till they died? 
I write it out in a verse—
MacDonagh and MacBride 
And Connolly and Pearse
Now and in time to be,
Wherever green is worn,
Are changed, changed utterly: 
A terrible beauty is born.

WBY: September 25, 1916 

The Killers Among Us 
(I don't want to write this) 

1.

He Was A Quiet Classmate 

A typical young kid
Who's never been in trouble,
A B+ student who 
Worked well in groups;
No one knows what triggered him,
No one ever expected him to be violent.

Fellow students report he had
A crazy look on his face,
Just running around stabbing
Whoever he found,
He's been a real nice kid
Except for this time,
Just another boy in a regional high school,
Except for this time, he never appeared troubled.

He had a minor Facebook presence
And not much experience on Twitter;
His parents are upset,
They didn't see this coming at all:
4 counts of attempted homicide,
21 counts of aggravated assault
And 1 count of carrying a weapon 
Onto school grounds, his high school.
 
Small for his age,
A shadow in the hallways,
He was the same as he always was,
Not smiling, not scowling, not frowning;
A shy and quiet boy who suddenly snapped
And now he's described as confused and depressed,
Scared of the consequences resulting from his actions:
200 feet of hallway, slashing and stabbing 
His classmates with two kitchen knives.

2. 

A Raging Grand Dragon 

So this aging former leader of the Klan,
A well known white supremist who has
Been tolerated for decades and allowed 
To live for reasons problematical,
Decides he wants to kill some Jews,
He needs to kill some more Jews,
For reasons murkily entwined with
His racist culture and upbringing
Compounded by his less than optimal
Intellectual capabilities.

Same story repeated <em>ad nauseam</em> since the Civil War, 
The Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments,
And multiple Civil Rights Acts and enforcements
— The Old South rises again whenever
And wherever they are allowed --
But his time, the brave southern klansman killed
Two Christians in a parking lot and another Christian 
Woman in the Village Shalom senior-living community
Where she was visiting her mother: he does not
Pick his targets well.

This is not the first murder he's been 
Involved with, certainly not his his first attempt
To kill a Jew, the Klan war against humanity continues,
Hiding like cowards behind the U. S. Constitution
— The Civil War is not yet over, 
Our enemies still move freely across the land,
It is more than time we finished what they started
Before they come for the Irish and the Italians,
And then the Asians and the few remaining indian tribes,
After they have eliminated all the Blacks and the Jews.

— Lisa Jain Thompson (April 2014)

Hello Peggy.  Saturn is forming a new baby moon on the outer edge of its A Ring says the Cassini Space Probe.  Huffington Post Science Section reported this just an hour ago.  Moon caught in formation for the first time.   This will give astronomers and astrogeologists a much better insight into formation of large solid objects in our solar system and beyond. 

 Cassini is now too far from Saturn to obtain a good image of the brightened section of the ring at about 7 on my home clock.  In 2016 it will be swinging around for a much better view.  Huffington Post does very good articles including a set of links at the end of this piece "Around The Web".  You will also enjoy the photographs here.   My oh my Saturn, you are prolific.  63 kids huh?   Cassini is powered by a small isotope reactor and has an extremely long life span.  It first entered the Saturn system in 2004.  Discoveries will continue for several decades.

#Saturn #saturnmoon #cassinihuygens #nasa #jpl #planetaryscience #solarsystemexploration
A NASA spacecraft may have witnessed the birth of a new Saturn moon. Photographs taken by NASA's Cassini probe in April 2013 show a bright arc about 750 miles (1,200 kilometers) long and 6 miles (10 km) wide at the edge of Saturn's outermost ring (...

This is my Sparkle Team Elite Engager Circle

As it has been some time since I posted a #teamelite circle, my   #teamelite circles have a fabulous theme this time, so they are named Sparkle and Glitter. You'll notice there are only two of them this time, as I am now making sure everyone has added me before I share them.

*     #teamelite  members - see nearer the end for instructions for the next stage!     #eliteinnercircle *

I have had so many great     #teamelite  engagers that I need two whole circles - why are they     #teamelite  engagers, as opposed to normal engagers? These are the ones who have shared my shared circles - you have close to 1,400 circle sharers here for you to add across these three circles. You should add people in these circles, because they are active engagers and will brighten up your Google Plus experience. I'm not sure you could handle all that Google Plus engagement, so think twice before you do so!

My     #teamelite  circles are extensively shared by the top circle sharers on Google Plus, so naturally, membership of     #teamelite  is very exclusive and there is a lot of demand to get in.

To get in, and to ensure you stay in     #teamelite  you need to do the following:

1. Add me to your circles, if you haven't done so already
2. +1 this circle
3. Publicly share this circle to public, your circles and extended circles.
4. If possible, leave a comment on this circle so I know you have done the three steps above (I say "if possible" as my circle comments more often than not hit the 500 comment limit).

BE THE BEST OF THE BEST:
To get into my     #eliteinnercircle  you need to share my Sparkle and Glitter     #teamelite  circles, as well as my current   #eliteinnercircle circle. You can find them here:

StarPoet Newsletter XV:XV (cosmos) 
Lisa Jain Thompson, Starpoet.com (13 April 2014 C.E.) 

Captain America and the Challenge of the Black Widow 
the post-modern political gospel 

The collectivist nation dislikes the Lone Ranger, 
Downplays Kirk and Spock, virtually hates Clint Eastwood, 
Believing the group mind comes to better decisions 
And the hive is more efficient and effective 
Than a single person or hero who, as an individual, 
Cannot make a difference by herself. 

Irony is not lost on a democracy, 
Or George, Tom, Ben or John, 
A poet in residence in North America, 
I will, I shall, I have. 

— Lisa Jain Thompson (April 2014) 


The Flame That Dances 
for Mr. Rooney 

The flame that dances at the end of a match
Separates us from all the other Earth creatures;
We all die, and many mammals recognize death
And mourn the lifeless body of a friend,
Female Gorillas have been known to carry
A dead infant in their arms for days;
We have conducted funeral ceremonies
Long before we became Sapiens,
Adorning our dead with flowers and last gifts,
Perhaps all primates do when not living in forest,
But we are the only animal on earth
Who builds great pyramids to bury ourselves within
And writes memoriams for loved ones who have gone.
Let's put on a show, Mickey. 

— Lisa Jain Thompson (April 2014)

First Earth Sized Habitable Planet Found  Kepler Data Keeps On Giving Kepler 186F

A momentous discovery has been announced.   Perhaps the most important was the publication in Science today that a planet just slightly larger than Earth has been located in the habitable zone of an alien star about 500 light years from Earth.   It orbits a red dwarf star, the most common star in our galaxy and takes roughly a third of the time Earth takes to orbit.  Red Dwarfs have a much lower energy output than our bright yellow sun.  This means planets must be close to receive about the same amount of energy as Earth does.   I want to share some links other articles too. 
Public Television is doing a major segment on this discover in the Nightly News Hour.
