HOWARD BEACH, Queens (WABC) — Police have arrested a man in a brutal assault inside a Queens subway station that was caught on surveillance video.

It happened around 5:15 a.m. on Tuesday, September 20 at the Howard Beach-JFK airport station.

Authorities say a 33-year-old woman was approached by a man who tried to strike up a conversation and then followed her up the mezzanine.

When the woman did not respond and ignored the advances, police say the man dragged her to the mezzanine floor and shoved her against the wall, where he punched her repeatedly with his fists and kicked him in the face and body.

A passer-by tried to intervene but retreated to the platform when the man advanced towards him.

The attacker then kicked and punched the woman several times before fleeing.

The police intervened and arrested the suspect.

The victim, who appears to be a security guard, was taken to Jamaica Hospital where he was treated for a serious but non-life-threatening eye injury.

“Do you know how scared I am now? I’ve never been one to be scared,” victim Elizabeth Gomes said.

She said her head was throbbing in pain and she had hardly slept for a week since the attack.

“Honestly, I can’t see anything on my right side. And it just hurts,” Gomes said.

She says the suspect muttered incoherently about “Satan” in the moments leading up to the attack.

“He talks about the devil. He talks about a whole bunch of nonsense,” Gomes said.

Gomes’ husband is heartbroken and furious.

“Man, I watched the video, and it broke my heart,” Clement Tucker said.

The suspect, Waheed Foster, 41, is now charged with felony assault.

In 1995, law enforcement sources claim Foster was arrested for the murder of his 82-year-old adoptive grandmother in a brutal beating when he was 14. Six years later, he was arrested for stabbing his 21-year-old sister with a screwdriver. Then in 2010, he was arrested for attacking three workers at the Creedmore psychiatric facility, where he was hospitalized. He was on parole until November 2024 at the time of last week’s attack.

Gomes says there were no police in the station. She said there was no one to prevent the attack and no one on the scene to respond.

“Every day is an incident on the subway,” she said. “What happened to all those policemen they said would be there to protect us? There’s no one to be found. I don’t understand.”

The rapper, 27, profusely apologized to fans for not being able to perform in a post shared on social media just 30 minutes before taking the stage at TD Garden.

He wrote: ‘Boston, I love you so fucking much. On tour I usually wake up around 4pm, and today I woke up with a creak on the right side of my body. I felt so good last night, but today was so different than before.

Newspaper sports editor

NEW ULM – Week four of the high school football season has only the New Ulm Eagles locally enjoying home cooking as they host Luverne Friday night at 7 p.m. on the New Ulm High School field for the return to the home.

Ulm’s New Minster heads west to Sleepy Eye to fight off the Indians.

Minnesota Valley Lutheran has an afternoon matinee at 3 p.m. Saturday in Wabasso.

NEW ULM CATHEDRAL (1-2) AT SLEEPY EYE PUBLIC (0-3) 7 PM FRIDAY

Ulm’s New Minster come into this game fresh off a 29-28 overtime win over St. James Area, while Sleepy Eye look to bounce back from a 35-8 road loss to Adrian.

New Ulm Minster head football coach Denny Lux says the Indians are a very good ball-chasing team defensively.

“They take good angles to the ball carrier and they put a lot of pressure from inside going up the middle with their defensive tackles and nose guards,” Lux said. “Then offensively they come out of formation I and they take their guards out. They ran Formation I last year with their dual location.

“These are things that we will see in our next games. They played a good defensive game against us last year (18-8 win for Sleepy Eye) and we are watching a film of that game. They are disciplined. Coach Joe Hoffmann is doing a good job with their defense.

Offensively, Lux feels the Greyhounds need to involve their backfield in their blocking plans.

“We have to make sure they stay on their blocks. Throughout, we’re doing a good job up front on our blocking systems – we just need to get better in the backfield.

Lux was very pleased with his special teams play in the one-point overtime win over St. James.

“They did a great job,” he said. “We blocked a punt, we blocked a basket and we made our extra points. We ran the swinging door and got a 2 point conversion from that. Our kickoff return has been pretty solid all year. Those things kept us in position to win the game.

Lux said last week’s win was huge.

“We felt we didn’t play a full game at the start of the season against YME and then we couldn’t match the speed of Springfield. This victory was important because we had to defend our ground and make sure that if we play hard the whole game, we have a chance to win at the end of the game.

“We may have some talent that is on our sidelines now that we can step onto the pitch and create one-sided players. That would be a plus for us, because when you start to burn out and get tired, you lose focus and that takes away confidence.

MINNESOTA VALLEY LUTHERAN (2-1) AT WABASSO (0-3) 3 PM SATURDAY

MVL head football coach Jim Buboltz said Wabasso is a young team that is excited to play.

“They will try to scatter you with their attack and run underneath,” he said. “They’re pretty even in run-pass, but overall they try to scatter you (defensively) and make you feel uncomfortable.”

Now 2-1 after a tough 13-6 loss last week to Martin County West, Buboltz said while this loss stings, it will also be a loss that will help the Chargers focus.

“We have to learn how to finish practices and finish games,” he said. “And that’s early in the year – I’d rather have that kind of loss in week 3 than week 10. We’ll learn from that and improve.

“Even in defeat we learned a lot and because of that we see that leadership coming out. They want to improve – they wanted to come back to training this week very focused.

Buboltz reiterated that the Chargers have plenty of weapons in their arsenal, from running backs to wide receivers to linemen.

“The biggest thing was Cole (Thompson) becoming a quarterback. You take a player who would probably have rewritten the receiving record book and be a receiver in college. You’re asking him to make this change because he’s such a special athlete.

“He’s doing this because he’s willing to sacrifice personal goals for the team. He’s going to keep improving there too.

Buboltz also sang the praises of his team’s defense.

“Most of the time, keeping a team at 13 points gets you a win,” he said. “We have Landen (Merseth) there, with Malachi (Kohls) and then the athletes we have on the outside. We have areas where we will continue to improve, but our defense is going to keep us in many games.

“Our defense only gave up a first down in the first half but we only had 6 points on the board in the first half. We controlled the time of possession, but we need to put more points on the board We have to finish.

LUVERNE (2-1) AT NEW ULM HIGH SCHOOL (0-3) FRIDAY 7 PM (RETURN)

New Ulm High School head football coach Derek Lieser said visiting Cardinals will do a number of different things to get the ball to their playmakers.

“They have a few guys they like to move, (Jayson Rops) will line up as a quarterback, tight end, running back or receiver,” Rieser said. “I think they want to be a racing team first, but they will try to take a few hits on the field. Above all, they want to run the ball, but they will try to be explosive with the pass.

And that concerns Lieser.

“We’ve shown that we’re not consistently good enough defensively or offensively (being outscored 133-20 in three games). We have way too many games where we have 10 guys doing their job and one not doing it. It shows that football is a team game. In basketball, a player can take control of a game, but that’s harder to do in football because there are more players on the court.

“So right now we’re trying to find ways to get the 11 guys on the pitch doing their job both in defense and in attack. It’s just simple things like defensive guys taking a block with their bad shoulder or they’re filling in the wrong space and leaving their space open. It’s a mix of offensive and defensive mistakes. We have lots of young children playing. We are not a very experienced team and we are not a senior-run team. So we’re going through these growing pains.

Lieser is sad that the Eagles have faced three good teams in their first three games that have combined 7-2 records.

“We were beaten by three good teams, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still succeed,” Lieser said. “We keep trying to grow in training and how we correct our mistakes.”

Prioritizing sleep is one of the healthiest things we can do, because everything from heart health to brain function can benefit from a good night’s rest.

While there’s no magic number for how much sleep we all need, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine recommends adults get at least seven hours of sleep each day. The quality of your sleep is also key, and you’ll want to spend about 20% of your nap in deep REM sleep where most dreams occur, memories are consolidated, and the brain recharges.

It sounds doable enough, but hectic schedules, stressful routines and other facets of modern life mean that about a third of Americans don’t get enough sleep on a regular basis and 70 million Americans suffer from sleep problems. according to the CDC. .

If you too suffer from occasional insomnia and have trouble falling asleep and/or staying asleep, the first step is to clean up your nighttime routine: make sure you stick to a regular sleep schedule, keep your bedroom cool and dark , avoid screens before going to bed and avoid heavy foods at night. While the best sleep tips tend to be free, there are also plenty of tools that can help you improve your sleep naturally, without having to take drugs that cause dizziness and fogginess.

While they don’t necessarily treat chronic insomnia (you should see a sleep specialist if the problem is getting in the way of your life), these products are all backed by science to promote eye closure. On your marks, set, repeat.

LAS VEGAS – Optometrists should be aware of the current concern over the overprescription of opiates, Marc D. Myers, DO, FAAO, Coatesville VA Medical Center, Vision Expo West told.

“It’s not that optometrists have a history of overprescribing opiates, but there is now concern with the opioid crisis in our country,” Myers said.

“We have many options for treating eye pain — acute, chronic, and post-surgical pain — which are ophthalmic options,” he said. “We reserve the use of opioids for patients who do not respond well to over-the-counter or ophthalmic options.”

This marketing campaign proves that knowing your customer is the secret to success https://web-xpress.com/this-marketing-campaign-proves-that-knowing-your-customer-is-the-secret-to-success/ Fri, 16 Sep 2022 21:05:29 +0000 https://web-xpress.com/this-marketing-campaign-proves-that-knowing-your-customer-is-the-secret-to-success/ Ask any marketer, and they’ll tell you that knowing your audience is critical to campaign success.

Ask any marketer, and they’ll tell you that knowing your audience is critical to campaign success. This knowledge informs the type of messaging they use, the channels they target and, of course, the content they create. But even a thorough understanding of their audience can hint at the best marketer.

Are you wondering if my tried and true tactics still work or do I need to change things up? Am I delivering the most optimal message to my audience or is there something better that I haven’t thought of yet? Am I reaching out too much or not enough?

To bring clarity to uncertainty, advanced marketers place immense value on their data. They work with trusted partners to gather information and research their customers. They study customer journey maps to identify critical touchpoints where their content will provide the most value. And they leverage real-time analytics to measure campaign success while adjusting tactics as needed. These are the marketers who spend so much of their career creating campaigns that disrupt and wow their audience, but who does the same for them?

On September 7, Mailchimp answered that question with its quirky and eye-catching Guess Less, Sell More campaign. This clever take on MailChimp’s “expert absurdism” is one of the most innovative visual campaigns of the year and proves that knowing your audience is key to ensuring the best result.

With 12 million customers, Mailchimp is considered the number one email and marketing automation platform on the market. On average, 500 million emails are sent by Mailchimp every day, and you can bet the organization is taking advantage of the insights the volume of emails can gather. With each email sent, the data pool increases. Mailchimp’s data is its biggest competitive advantage, yet too few marketers are even aware of its existence.

Mailchimp is known for its ease of use, but its advanced features, fueled by its abundance of data, aren’t always the first thing organizations think of when turning to the platform. For example, marketers who find themselves debating between subject lines can take advantage of Mailchimp’s Optimized Content feature. Gathering data from high-performing campaigns across industries, the platform suggests content changes based on what it predicts will perform best based on the information. This data also informs customer segmentation forecasts, allowing marketers to place audiences into different funnels within their email campaigns. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

This is where the Guess Less, Sell More campaign comes in. The campaign features eye-catching visuals that bring together various common elements – for example, a cat, owl and bat combined into one or a sandwich that doubles as sandals. –in memorable, slightly odd creations. One of the goals of this campaign is simple: to stop viewers in their tracks. Mailchimp manages to capture and hold viewers’ attention with a campaign that stays true to the sophisticated yet humorous approach that’s signature of the Mailchimp brand. The delightful quirks depicted on posters, banner ads, and TV ads serve to quickly express the problem Mailchimp seeks to solve: “take the guesswork out of email marketing.” And whether you’re a solopreneur or a Fortune500 client, it’s a message that resonates.

But the deeper purpose of this campaign is where that idea of ​​”simple” is turned upside down. When a viewer moves past the initial disturbance these images invoke, they find themselves questioning their impression and searching for answers, and that’s exactly the point! Through a highly visual experience, Mailchimp recreates their target audience’s sense of uncertainty, letting them know they understand their pain while pointing to their platform as the solution.

Developed by Mailchimp’s in-house creative agency, Wink, this campaign illustrates the potential for creative work when developed with your audience in mind. After surveying their target audience, they quickly learned that even the most advanced marketers question their decisions. This overwhelming sense of uncertainty could be overcome with the right tools, but the right campaign would be needed to draw attention to those tools.

This customer-centric approach to content is currently favored by 58% of marketers today, but only 14% believe their organization as a whole makes customer-centricity a priority. If you’re a marketer hoping to achieve similar success and show the value of this approach, consider the gains from this campaign that you can replicate:

  • Show your clients that you truly understand their pain – Identify your customer’s pain points and develop content that doesn’t just tell your audience that you feel their pain, but rather shows it.
  • Provide visual content that stops them in their tracks – 91% of audiences demand visual content as a primary, secondary and tertiary form of information delivery from competing brands to grab their attention, yet 94% of first impressions are based on the design of this content. This means prioritizing production value in all the visual content you produce to get a great first impression every time.
  • Make sure your content works for a variety of channels – Create content that is versatile enough to show across all channels (offline and online) your target audience is on. In the case of this campaign, for example, the same images are used to create video ads, print ads in industry magazines, ads for New York Fashion Week where the most knowledgeable audience of Mailchimp, and more.

Michelle Taite, Mailchimp’s CMO, best summed up these tactics, saying, “When you look at our campaign, Guess Less Sell More, what most people might look at and think is ‘that’s the beloved. Mailchimp I know, “but if you back up a bit, you see the guessing devices are an interpretation of what inspired the campaign, which is our customers.”

When it comes to connecting with advanced marketers, delivering a campaign that is both unique and disruptive is a must. A simple look at the visual appeal of this campaign clearly shows respect for this truth. Taite said so when she concluded “As thought leaders in the field, we owe it to our audiences to come forward with the most groundbreaking, smart, and sophisticated marketing.”

What is pink eye and how to treat it https://web-xpress.com/what-is-pink-eye-and-how-to-treat-it/ Tue, 13 Sep 2022 23:05:36 +0000 https://web-xpress.com/what-is-pink-eye-and-how-to-treat-it/ Conjunctivitis, also known as pink eye, is a condition that can be caused by infection or a reaction to allergens.

Conjunctivitis, also known as pink eye, is a condition that can be caused by infection or a reaction to allergens. The term pink eye comes from the fact that it usually causes redness or swelling of the white of the eye.

“You can develop pink eye by coming into contact with the virus or bacterial organism on a surface and then touching your face or eyes,” says Desinee Drakulich, OD, a medical optometrist from Nebraska. “People who wear contact lenses are also more susceptible to pink eye if they don’t wash their hands well when changing their contact lenses or if they wear them beyond recommended use.”

viral conjunctivitis

Pink eye caused by viruses is the most common and is highly contagious. These infections usually go away on their own after about seven to 14 days.

Symptoms of viral conjunctivitis

  • Redness in the whites of the eyes
  • Protruding blood vessels
  • Pain or burning sensation
  • tearing
  • Fever

Because most cases of viral conjunctivitis are mild, treatments are rarely recommended unless you have a very severe form. Over-the-counter drops like artificial tears can be used to help soothe your eyes.

As the virus is highly contagious, you should be careful not to touch your face or eyes when around other people to avoid spreading the virus.

Treatment of viral conjunctivitis

  • Over-the-counter artificial tears
  • Frequent hand washing
  • Change pillowcases and sheets frequently
  • Avoid sharing towels
  • Avoid close contact with others, such as touching or shaking hands

Bacterial conjunctivitis

Conjunctivitis caused by a bacterial infection is more common in young children. “Adults rarely get this form of pink eye. They typically come into contact with this type of bacteria fairly frequently over the years and have become immune to it,” says Dr. Drakulich.

Although not as contagious as viral conjunctivitis, it can spread quickly in a daycare or school environment, as children tend to touch everything around them as well as their face and eyes, notes Dr. Drakulich.

Symptoms of bacterial conjunctivitis differ slightly from a viral infection. The telltale sign of a bacterial infection is a green and yellow discharge. It will also be itchy and usually not painful.

Symptoms of bacterial conjunctivitis

  • Red and puffy eyes
  • Itchy, watery eyes
  • Green and yellow discharge from the eyes
  • Fever

Bacterial conjunctivitis is treated with a topical antibiotic. “Although it may get better without treatment, an antibiotic will shorten the duration of the infection, prevent complications and decrease the spread to others,” says Dr. Drakulich. “I strongly recommend getting your child diagnosed and treated. If left untreated, the infection could become more serious. This may require hospitalization and cause permanent damage to vision. If your child develops a fever, this is often a sign of a more serious infection and needs medical evaluation.”

Dr. Drakulich recommends keeping your child home for the first 24 to 48 hours after starting an antibiotic to reduce the spread.

Treatment of bacterial conjunctivitis

  • Topical antibiotic
  • Frequent hand washing
  • Frequently wash pillowcases, sheets and bedding
  • Avoid sharing towels

allergic conjunctivitis

Allergic conjunctivitis is not contagious and occurs more often in people with allergies, asthma, or eczema. Antibiotics will not improve the condition, but may help relieve symptoms by soothing the eyes and reducing itching.

Treatment of allergic conjunctivitis

  • Allergy medications
  • Over-the-counter allergy eye drops

Other causes of conjunctivitis include:

fungal conjunctivitis

Fungal conjunctivitis is usually associated with the ingress of organic matter into the eye, such as a tree branch, and injury. This type of infection can be very difficult to treat and should be evaluated by your doctor immediately.

Symptoms of fungal conjunctivitis

  • Red and painful eye
  • Inflammation of the eye

What if my pink eye keeps coming back?

If your pink eye comes back after treatment, it’s likely a sign that it wasn’t treated appropriately and needs further evaluation, advises Dr. Drakulich. It can also come back repeatedly due to allergies or dry eyes. Dry eye is a condition caused when your eyes cannot provide adequate lubrication. It can make your eyes red, inflamed, and stinging or burning.

When to see a doctor for pink eye

  • Your child has normal symptoms of conjunctivitis, in addition to fever
  • Vision problems
  • Extreme eye pain
  • Weakened immune system or other chronic medical conditions
  • Bacterial infection that does not go away after five days
Have it appraised
Pink eye can become serious if not treated properly. Not sure what’s causing your pink eye or if it won’t go away? Call 800.922.0000 to make an appointment with an ophthalmologist.

The Brisbane Lions will challenge Jarrod Berry’s one-week ban for an alleged eye gouge on Melbourne star Clayton Oliver, reports 7News’ Tom Browne.

A fascinating showdown in the finals court looms after Brisbane semi-final hero Berry was offered a suspension for his actions in a semi-final brawl with Oliver on Friday night.

The Lions now face the prospect of being without Berry for their preliminary round against Geelong after he was suspended from one game for making ‘unreasonable or unnecessary contact’ with Oliver’s eye area during the Lions win over Melbourne on Friday night. The incident was classified as intentional driving, low impact and high contact.

The Lions will now head to court to challenge the suspension imposed on Berry, who claimed there was ‘nothing deliberate’ about the contact he appeared to make in Oliver’s eyes during a malicious third term at the MCG.

As the two argued with Berry pinned to the MCG by Oliver above, the vision showed the Lion reaching for his opponent’s face.

The Lions midfielder on Friday night said he was not worried about a possible ban, saying the moment was “just a little fight in the center of the MCG” and “part of the contest”.

But Melbourne champion Garry Lyon said Berry would likely have a case to answer. Lyon said it was “not a great look”, adding on Fox Footy: “If they get through this he’s going to be in a world of pain.

“I don’t want to use the word eye gouge, but we know that when you find yourself in this situation, sometimes you do things to try to get out of it.

“Any hand around the eye or movement around the eye will always be something the MRO will look at very harshly.

“It’s the first movement – ​​it’s a slight raking movement of the eyes. I don’t think you can be a bit guilty of that.

Seven-time All-Australian Nathan Buckley admitted it was a “really poor moment” from Berry and said he was “not in a great position”.

“It’s so bittersweet. What got them this game was this game (Berry vs. Oliver) and this second-half performance from a young player, but it’s very unlikely to see next week given this incident,” Buckley told Fox Footy.

Fox Footy panel member Nick Riewoldt attempted to build a case in Berry’s defense.

“I think you have to take into consideration that Berry is on his back and has his arm over his face/throat. You are pretty defenseless in this situation,” he said.

“(Berry’s actions are) going to be frowned upon.

“It will be the defense – that he is defenseless on the pitch.”

Reporter Jon Ralph told Fox Footy there was something in the “helpless defense” if the MRO cited Berry’s actions.

“I think he’s conflicted,” he said.

“He doesn’t even need to be found guilty of gouging out the eyes… all he needs to be found guilty is unnecessary or unreasonable eye contact.

“If it’s rated as intentional, low impact, and face or eye, well, that’s a one-week suspension.

“If he can get it assessed as reckless – (arguing) ‘I didn’t have my eyes on him, I wasn’t sure what I was doing, it was an escape move’, that’s the best option for him to play.”

The moment spoiled what was a brilliant effort by Berry to turn the game in Brisbane’s favour.

After being held by young opponent Deven Robertson in the first half, Lions coach Chris Fagan made the tactical decision to move Berry to Oliver for the second half. And the Lion immediately got under Oliver’s skin.

The Berry incident was the only incident cited in the MRO’s report from the semi-final.

ISTANBUL

More than 1.5 million Turkish liras (over $82,400) were pledged to flood victims in Pakistan on Thursday during a virtual fundraiser hosted by the country’s diplomatic mission in Ankara.

The embassy organized the event to collect donations for Pakistan where more than 33 million people are affected by unprecedented floods.

Muhammad Syrus Sajad Qazi, Pakistan’s top diplomat in Turkey, said the fundraiser came at a “critical time” when millions of Pakistanis were “facing grave danger due to some of the worst flooding”. .

He said flooding caused by above-normal rains killed 1,355 people and 1 million head of livestock, damaged 1.7 million homes and affected 2 million acres of arable land.

He thanked Türkiye for his support during difficult times and was moved as he showed gifts and donations sent to the embassy by Turks, including children who donated their own money.

Türkiye was one of the first responders to the situation in Pakistan and sent 11 planes and three trains of rescue and relief materials to help the victims.

Turkish lawmaker Ali Sahin offered his condolences to flood victims for “my precious Pakistan” and said Turks felt the “pain of the brothers and sisters of Pakistan”.

“Pakistani people are very powerful to overcome these painful days,” he said, adding that Turkey is closely monitoring the situation.

Under the leadership of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Sahin said two ministers visited Pakistan to “take measures and initiatives” to help alleviate the suffering of the victims.

He added that the Turkish Disaster and Emergency Management (AFAD) and the Turkish Red Crescent (Turk Kizilay), as well as other Turkish NGOs, were working to help the victims.

The Turkish ministerial delegation visited Pakistan last Friday to express its solidarity and support for the South Asian country.

Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu, Environment Minister Murat Kurum and officials from Turkey’s Disaster and Emergency Management (AFAD) and Turkey’s Housing Development Administration (TOKI) visited the affected regions by floods, particularly the district of Badin in Sindh.

“Turkey has fully mobilized (its resources) since the floods (in Pakistan) started,” Sahin said. “(The) pain of Pakistan is the pain of Turkey! Pakistan is not alone.

Turks, including professionals, business people and members of the Pakistani community in Türkiye have pledged to donate to the campaign launched by the Embassy of Pakistan, raising cash and in-kind aid for the victims.

Qazi delivered special prayers for the victims last Friday at more than 90,000 mosques across Turkey.

In less than an hour, the official tally of donations from the Embassy stood at more than one million Turkish liras, in addition to the $30,000 from the attendees.

Global Assistance to Pakistan to Help Mitigate Floods

Pakistan has received more than 50 humanitarian aid flights from Turkey, UAE, China, Qatar, Uzbekistan, France, Turkmenistan, Jordan, UNHCR, UNICEF and the World Food Programme.

The UN and the Pakistani government launched a flash appeal on August 30 for $160 million to address the devastation caused by unprecedented rains and floods.

The death toll has reached 1,355 after 12 people have been killed in the past 24 hours, while 12,722 people have been injured in rain and flood-related incidents across the country since mid-June.

More than 33 million of the country’s 220 million people were affected by the floods, causing a staggering loss of $10 billion in damage to already weakened infrastructure.

Nearly 45% of cropland has already been inundated by floods, posing a serious threat to food security and adding to already soaring inflation.

Hundreds of thousands of displaced residents are also facing outbreaks of waterborne, skin and eye diseases, with health experts warning of higher death tolls from diarrhoea, typhoid, malaria, dengue fever, gastrointestinal infections and other than rains and floods.

The UN chief will arrive on Friday for a two-day visit to Pakistan as a sign of solidarity.

Antonio Guterres will meet with Pakistani leaders and senior officials to exchange views on the national and global response to the catastrophe caused by climate change.

He will also visit flood-affected areas, interact with displaced families and oversee UN humanitarian response work in support of government rescue and relief efforts for the millions of affected Pakistanis.

According to a study published in the Glaucoma Diary.

“There are no reports in the literature indicating whether there is a difference in [quality of life] between patients with [normal tension glaucoma] and those with [primary open-angle glaucoma]”, Yeoun Sook Chun MD, PhD, from the department of ophthalmology at Chung-Ang University College of Medicine in Seoul, and colleagues wrote. “If there is a difference, it could be important for planning, counseling and vision rehabilitation in each disease group.”

Seeking to compare vision-related quality of life (QOL) between the two groups, Chun and colleagues used survey results from the LIGHT study, which measured quality of life using the version self-reported National Eye Institute visual function questionnaire.

Researchers analyzed clinical, demographic, and socioeconomic data from 506 patients with normal tension glaucoma (NTG) and 287 patients with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) and used propensity score matching to account for various confounding factors. They also measured the integrated binocular visual field (IVF) for each participant.

After a 2:1 match, researchers compared 387 patients with NTG and 238 with POAG and reported no statistically significant differences in eye pain, short and long distance activities, mental health, role difficulties, driving ability and overall composite score between groups.

However, patients with POAG had significantly poorer social functioning (P = .016) and dependency (P = 0.026) compared to patients with NTG.

Although the researchers reported no difference in the mean value of the IVF gap between the two groups, they noted that the upper center was worse in the NTG patients compared to those in the POAG group, while the values lower IVF rates were worse in the POAG group.

Because social functioning involves eye contact when interacting with others, Chun and colleagues hypothesized that lower field deficit, as seen in POAG patients, likely affects the ability to an individual to participate in social activities. Similarly, the lowest lower FIV values ​​in patients with POAG were also related to addiction, or a person’s need to stay home or rely on others for help in because of his sight.

“Confirmation of our current findings in a large-scale study will help improve treatment planning, counseling, and vision rehabilitation for patients with glaucoma,” Chun and colleagues wrote.
