For some blind patients, ‘Bionic Eye’ lets there be light

In Government, Healthcare by Innovate LILeave a Comment

Tech News Keywords: , , ,

By GREGORY ZELLER // After 20 years of total blindness, a Port Jefferson woman is beginning to see the light. Linda Kirk, 67, has been sightless for more than 20 years – but just 10 minutes after a surgically implanted retinal device was activated in her left eye, Kirk was able to distinguish light from dark. Soon after, she was perceiving movement, even some shapes. And while she described what she was seeing using terms like “puffy white lights” and “vertical cheddar puffs,” that’s light-years beyond the total nothingness she could see since retinitis pigmentosa, a degenerative eye disease that whacks out the retina’s ability to sense light, robbed her of her vision two decades ago. It’s al... Read More

Cantor: Why not go all-in with 
Long Island wind turbines?

In Emerging Technology, Energy, Government by Long Island Business NewsLeave a Comment

Tech News Keywords: , , , , ,

With Gov. Cuomo putting his full weight behind wind power producing 2,400 megawatts of energy capacity off the shores of Long Island by 2030, and with more ocean bottoms identified for wind power, it is hard not to accept that wind power is on its way and will meet the deadline established by Cuomo. So, why not go all-in for wind power and begin planning for land based wind turbines? Land-based wind turbines are already part of land-locked European and American energy infrastructure, including the hard to ignore five wind turbines just as you enter Atlantic City, New Jersey. Atlantic City is not alone in land-based wind power turbines, First Winds energy has eight locations in Maine, Vermont and upstate New York producing 4... Read More

Andy Kaufman’s Foreign Man character became the basis for Latka Gravas on the long-running comedy Taxi. The shabbily dressed, wild-eyed man was sitting quietly at a Chock full o’Nuts counter when he suddenly started banging his cup and screaming. Other customers glanced quickly at him and looked away, savvy New Yorkers knowing to avoid eye contact. A few decided it was time to get moving. No big deal. This was 1981 Manhattan. Wackos were an everyday thing. The wacko in this case was Andy Kaufman, a once shy, Jewish kid from Long Island who was then at the top of his stardom, mesmerizing audiences with the oddball characters they loved and the jerks they despised.

In addition to its historic harbor, Greenport has lovely, walkable beaches. Long Island’s Greenport Village dates to the mid-1600s, when colonists from New Haven crossed the Long Island Sound and settled in Southold township. Thanks to its deep, well-protected harbor, the village has been an integral part of the North Fork’s economy and maritime tradition ever since, driving local whaling, fishing and oystering in the 19th and 20th centuries, then becoming a tourism hub in modern times. Today, the village offers bountiful options for beachfront relaxation and activities, as well as a lengthy list of historical attractions spotlighting Greenport’s rich heritage. ... Read More

Old or young, there’s no shortage of homeless animals that are ready to be adopted on Long Island. Read all about how to adopt Shorty and Misty right here!

Shorty is a tiny fellow (less than 16 pounds) and resembles a Shiba Inu mix painted in Pomeranian rust. At 10 years old, Shorty was rescued as an older stray at a dangerous traffic intersection in Wyandanch. Thanks to the Town of Babylon Shelter, Short... Read More
