"Dr Millie Rooney, co-director of Australia Remade and long-time contributor here at Power to Persuade, has had some great ideas for new reality TV shows, following the success of ‘Alone Australia’. The question is - do we have contestants going it alone to survive, or a team effort to re-imagine a way for everyone to thrive?"
"2022’s Mini 3 Pro could already see forwards, backwards, and down, but... we crashed it into a tree pretty fast. The #binocular #vision in every direction is a potentially huge upgrade if it works well, and the smaller wingspan compared to an Air could also help it fit between trees and/or branches."

From ‘Anarchist Affinity’ to ‘Collective Action’ – A brief history and future directions.
We want to be unified not just by an abstract set of ideals, but a day to day commitment to increasing our capacity to live and fight back against the blows of capitalism and other oppressive systems. To that end we wish to take part in and build projects that substantively address peoples’ real needs, showing the efficacy of anarchist politics in the process. We need a clear vision so that we aren’t just stuck trying to survive, but are able change the world so that we can live in it.

The UAW Union Strike Against Ford, Stellantis, and General Motors Continues
A friend lost some vision from #glaucoma and has had surgery for it. Glaucoma is an eye condition where there is progressive damage to the optic nerve in the back of the eye leading to permanent loss in #vision. Often this damage is caused by increased pressure of the eyeball pressing on the nerve. There are other possible causes too.
But during the process nobody sat down with my friend to discuss lifestyle tips that can have an impact (albeit sometimes very short term) on# intraocular pressure (#IOP).
A few things I've learned about helping keep pressure down (there are lots more in the link below along with explanations):
- Avoid lifting things that are heavy or cause strain. This can increase eye pressure.
- Get a wedge pillow for sleeping or use 2 or 3 pillows -- lying down can increase #eye pressure, but keeping your head elevated stops it going up as much.
- Did you know doing cardio exercise both lower pressure for maybe a few hours (but avoid swimming)?
- Swimming and some yoga positions increase eye pressure.
- Some foods, like caffeine, can lead to an increase in eye pressure.
- Healthy diet helps with nerve health. (And, related, may help your digestion so you can avoid straining in the bathroom --yes that can increase pressure too).
- Marijuana lowers pressure for maybe only 3 to 4 hours. Compounds in Tobacco contribute to nerve damage in other ways besides pressure.
- The evidence for the effects of alcohol are mixed.
- Many medications can increase eye pressure. Ask your #doctor or #pharmacist about anything you take -- whether it's a prescription, over-the-counter meds, or vitamins.
Oh, btw glaucoma is worryingly common. If you haven't had an eye exam in a while, go. You can't feel rising pressures.
Here are more details and a list of things you can do to help keep your eye pressure under control.

Far too many #websites and #applications are designed and implemented by 20- or 30-somethings with no #vision issues, or any sort of #accessibility issue. Elements you need to click with nearly pixel-precision when you have fine motor control problems or alternative input devices, #dark modes with spider-thin light grey text on a black background, designers picking #fonts that render 3mm high on a screen, on and on.
Mastodon hive, question about a project we built, thinking everyone would love but is not getting users: https://retina-hub.org (which is built on top of the excellent kerko project) is an attempt to have a system where people on the #retina n #vision fields can add their papers, classify them with predefined tags/keywords. The system is searchable, and can be used to share ones publications with a single link. Another point of the project is that it generates a public @zotero database that everyone can use...
(Again a lot of these features are kerko - I am emphasizing 'cause it has been built by someone else and you should check it out).
Everyone can access the page, but to have your papers listed, you need to fill out a form (maybe 2min per paper entry).
So my question is: does this sounds like a useless waste of time? Or are we just not giving people the right context/incentives to add their papers there? Anyone has suggestions?

Mini-PCDH15 gene therapy rescues hearing in a mouse model of Usher syndrome type 1F
At Harvard Medical School and the Ohio State University, researchers have developed a “mini gene” approach that they believe could help to treat the disease. Their study, published in Nature Communications, focuses on protocadherin-15 (#PCDH15), a protein found in the inner ear receptor cells that, when mutated, gives rise to the unraveling of this syndrome.

“The field of computer vision and its applications might be said to be haunted by prior visions and visionaries. It is not just the explicit design goals and project imperatives that served as conditions of possibility for developed technologies but also the prejudices, assumptions, and biases of the programmers and project managers that reside in the produced code and related discourse.”
I think you can safely say that @markhurst & I agree on the only positive thing that can be said about Apples new stupid diving mask thingy: That it probably won't catch on, since nothing remotely resembling a use case for it exists...
Considering the accessibility of Vision Pro pricing, I would expect to see a standard, non-Pro, Vision in the future.
I would love to see a licensable operating system in this space to level out pricing. It won't be Apple, but I think whoever does that OS will do well.
This piece by Steven Aquino discusses aspects of Vision Pro accessibility that non-disabled people might not consider.

If VisionPro will only be available early next year, they aren’t even remotely finished with engineering it right now. (So they don’t actually know right now what it will cost them to produce it either.)
Sales will slowly ramp starting Q1 next year, US only.
Which means the earliest possible time for a non-pro, consumer priced model is the holiday season 2024. That’s the optimistic case. Before that, no sales volume whatsoever.

The Freiburg Vision Test FrACT₁₀ https://michaelbach.de/fract/ has learned something new: Assessment of grating contrast thresholds. You select spatial frequency and patch diameter (in Settings>Contrast), and it will hone in on the threshold. An approximate Gaussian window smoothes the grating edge. Error diffusion allows for accurate threshold in spite of 8 bit limits. Downloadable as WebApp. For giggles try 'Autorun to target contrast'.

I love choreographing routines for my gymnastics teams. The only problem is I tend to get carried away and forget that my kids only train 2-4 hours a week, and are not able to do the skills the same way I see them in my brain. The routines will still be awesome for their ability level and amount of training they do, and I am always super proud of them - especially when I throw a change at them to see if it will work and they have a go based purely on my belief that they can do it.
And today, one of my teams finally realised my vision for their routine (after thinking it was too “easy” for them) and it sparked renewed excitement because they understood the expectation - it’s not the individual elements but how the skills come together, and new ways of doing old skills.
An “easy” routine put together well can be more entertaining and score higher than a “hard” routine the kids struggle with.
I would like to see the Mayor use more of their executive authority to lower speeds. Every city owned vehicle should have speed monitoring on it matched to the speed limit of the road.

So as I was reading the #AppleVis #Vision #accessibility progress report for #Apple devices, I caught a few mentions of how Google has their user testing group and gathers feedback, and how some users are eagerly watching Android now. And I hope it delivers a good kick in the pants to the leadership at Apple. Apple is constantly saying that "Accessibility is a part of our DNA." "Music is a part of our DNA." Well, that DNA is degrading fast, and I'm so, so glad I'm not the only one that's experiencing a buggy, unoptomized experience on just about all of my Apple devices. Granted, Mac is still great for email, writing, and editing audio. Not because of VoiceOver, but because of the apps available on the Mac. iOS is still a great accessible OS, mainly because of the amount of options Apple gives developers in showing info, and the amount of apps for the blind that has been made for Apple devices over the years. Apple Watch is basically the only good smart watch out there for the blind. But if Android can get to this point, while *preserving* the clean, bug-free experience that it has now, well I could see quite a few blind people switching to Google. I mean I doubt ChromeOS is going anywhere great soon, and Windows is already what blind people grit their teeth and deal with already. So a phone that lets them text from the web browser, transfer files from File Explorer? It wouldn't be a hard choice if accessibility is improved. Also I'm not blaming the accessibility team. I'm sure they bring up that they need more resources any chance they get. But if something better comes along, that allows me, personally, to do my job better, or to be happier when using it, or that works faster? I'm jumping on it.
