Mikal Watts is leading a team of legal professionals in a class act lawsuit against Syngenta, who is accused of selling US farmers tainted and genetically-modified corn.
It is estimated that over 20 percent of corn is produced in the United States. In turn, it is exported internationally. Upon receiving tainted corn from Syngenta, recipients closed their ports, which caused a spiraling effect of lose wages for US farmers nationwide. Watts primary focus is to help recover financial damages felt by hundreds of thousands farmers nationwide.
Mr. Watts was born in Corpus Christi, Texas. San Antonio Magazine told that after receiving an undergraduate degree in 1987 from the University of Texas in only two short years, he went on to graduate from the University of Texas Law School in 1989 at 21 years old. Immediately afterwards, he began a successful career in law as a briefing attorney in the Supreme Court of Texas under Hon. Thomas R. Phillips.
In 1990, he was taken on as an associate at the law firm of David L. Perry & Associates in Corpus Christi, Texas, where after only one year, he became partners in the law firm of Perry & Hass, L.L.P. After four extraordinarily successful years, Watts created his own law firm, Harris & Watts. Since then, Mr. Watts has continued his lucrative career in law, and has expanded his practice to 29 offices with over 100 employees.
Even before Donald Trump was inaugurated, he had sworn to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, which was a brainchild of the Obama Administration. According to the Huffington Post, Trump actually claimed that his administration would allow the health insurance exchanges of the law to collapse before blaming Democrats. Trump wants to replace Obamacare with the Better Care Reconciliation Act, which has already suffered an embarrassing defeat in the US Senate.
It is morally wrong for the US President to recognize that there is a problem in the American health system but still do nothing about it while people suffer. Trump is determined to do everything in his power to get rid of Obamacare without a viable replacement in mind. This has even blinded his obligation towards the improvement of the health system for the benefit of Americans.
In as much as Obama is no longer the president, destroying one of his achievements in the health sector still outweighs plans by the Trump administration to provide affordable health insurance. Despite its deficiencies, Obamacare helped to expand health coverage. By totally expunging it without any fallback option, Trump will be conceding that there is nothing he can do to solve the challenges that face the American health system. This has been interpreted as a strategic move to discredit strides made by the Obama administration to improve the healthcare insurance market.
The negative energy being exhibited by Trump and his cronies has come to light with the government making deliberate efforts aimed at suppressing health insurance enrollment. This is meant to make Obamacare function worse so that it can be labelled a failure. Since ascending to power, Trump has warned that he will cut off all the payments that the government owes health insurance providers. Such a move is likely to send the health insurance industry into a tailspin.
themselves from competition by harnessing the state powers. Most people argue against this fact, yet it is a widespread phenomenon. The occurrence of this situation inflicts losses to the general public.
A recent example is an aggressive campaign by the American Optometric Association (AOA) to fight the innovations that currently provide accurate eye tests and length prescriptions to United State citizens through the internet. Such innovations would provide significant savings for millions of patients requiring eye correction. However, the phenomenon would negatively impact the revenue for optometrists, and that is why they are seeking help from the politicians.
One of the alternatives that the AOA considers as villain is Opternative, an online platform offering consumers a 25-minute eye test via a smartphone application. The lobbying has been fruitful in South Carolina. The state legislature banned Opternative by passing a bill that prevented similar technologies from providing the service. The bill was mainly aimed at granting licensed optometrists the monopoly power to provide eye tests.
The then-governor vetoed the bill, stating that under her administration, the state has expanded health care. According to her, the innovation was developed by a small group of eye professionals seeking to block the new developments in the field. As a result, the Eye Care Consumer Protection law has been enacted, wiping out online eye test firms from the market.
However, the AOA should not celebrate their victory yet. Opternative has filed a suit that challenges the legality of legislation. The suit has been brought with the help of the Institute for Justice. The Tenth Circuit had declared the law unconstitutional after a thorough analysis. However, the Supreme Court rebuked the decision. Recently, the court has considered a more engaged stance on the matter.

A 67 year old woman has been wearing contacts for much of her life. Recently she went in for cataract surgery but what they found was far more fascinating. The woman had never once complained about experiencing any kind of irritation prior to the day of surgery. What they found were 27 layers of contacts on her eyes. 27 Contact Lenses
The woman has said that following the removal of the contact lenses, she was much more comfortable. There has never been any one before who has experienced this prior to this report. The reports state that while the patient had said she never experienced any type of irritation, this is a very unlikely situation. In many cases, if someone was to apply more than one layer of contact to their eyes, their eyes would begin to be irritated due to the foreign body.
The woman had said that prior to the surgery, she was experiencing what she thought to be symptoms from growing older and the breakdown of her body. While she made these reports, she had started to notice that she was experiencing vision problems within her right eye and that her eyes were deep set which could have resulted in the contact lenses being lost on the eye.
In some cases, there has been reports of the contacts losing their way in the eye however in most cases, the contacts would eventually work free and fall out. In this case, the lenses became lost and stayed lost. For most people who experience this problem, they find that the lenses are hiding underneath the fold of the top lid but in this case, they did not stay in that spot.
It is important that you never wear your contact lenses for longer periods of time as this is what can lead to infections. It is luck that his woman never experienced this problem while wearing those contacts.
The digital marketing company White Shark Media has made a huge splash in in the field of online marketing solutions. In the years since the company’s launch in 2011 White Shark media has become one of fastest growing agencies working with online marketing. The business of White Shark media came from the effort of Danish entrepreneurs. The three men have been working together for some years and decided to venture into the world of digital md to create something unique.
White Shark Media has managed to set itself out of the rest of the companies in its line of work and size through a number of accomplishments. For instance, at White Shark Media the first client that the company ever served is still on their clients list since the company started up in 2011. In terms of business, White Shark Media is aligned with giants such as Google and Microsoft. There are only 29 companies working with Goggle as a part of their Google Ad Words Premier Partners and White Shark media is one of them. Recently, White Shark media also started working with Bing.
California has always been the home of White Shark Media. The company is providing its services and products to businesses operating in all industries.

In fact, by 2020 the company will most probably expand overseas and have nearly five hundred employees.
White Shark Media has experts operating it. One of the founders is Mr. Alexander Christian Nygart and he is at the position of chief executive officer. White Shark Media is not the first venture of Mr. Alexander Christian Nygart. Previously in his career, he ventured into the music industry and was a collaborative founder of a media company working in the music industry specifically. Mr. Alexander Christian Nygart has experience in the sales sector as well and has worked in it for about ten years.
Healthcare.gov confirms that for children, vision screening is required as it is categorized under preventive care, so this means that it is covered by the health plan without any charges. However services such as these shall remain free, until a child reaches the age of 19 within the guidelines of the ACA-compliant plan. Keep in mind that vision screening is in no way required as being the same as a full eye exam. Vision screening is a procedure that is often performed by a pediatric physician solely for the detection and identification of eye defects.
The fact that there is no enrollment for eyecare insurance for Americans over the age of 19, under Obamacare, doesn’t seem too bright an idea. All that are exempt from kids coverage pay for eye exams and glasses, according to The Affordable Care Act, will struggle with the more severe issues that undergo vision care patients. So why is it that you can provide a child with an eye exam but you would refuse certain optic procedures to an elderly patient? One has to ask, what cause is there for such obvious inconsideration other than a policy. Especially one backed by the mandate that everyone must have health care or be taxed indefinitely. It is common for politicians, to undermine the importance of reliable services before the American tax dollar.
Under Obamacare the health plan that seems at first to be a good offer, still has many loopholes. These kinks must be worked out in time. The rates that eye defects are affecting Americans are increasing. If certain exchanges to cover vision medical expenses are not met, or at least enacted upon for improvement, the rift can cause even more distrust between the people and political policies. It is my suggestion that if there is to be a required plan to help people, then it should be made to help everyone just the same.
Most swimmers are quite familiar with the sting of chlorine in their eyes. The smell of swimming in a heavily chlorinated pool can even become rather soothing after a while. Most people assume that the sting and smell are just proof that they’re being protected against disease. After all, nobody wants bacteria heavy water sitting right against their eyes or skin. A recent story provides a differing viewpoint of chlorine rich pools.
The article features some advice from University of Alberta’s Lindsay Blackstock. Lindsay recently co-authored a paper which shows 31 of the 31 pools they tested came out positive for a chemical that suggests the presence of urine. She points out that all other chemicals present on one’s body from general personal hygiene are also going to be present in every pool. Anyone who’s had shampoo get into their eye will know how rough that can be. And just because the shampoo is in a diluted form, that doesn’t mean it’s suddenly safe to have seeping into one’s ocular orbit.
Andrew Chadeayne went on to mention that the various chemicals and contaminants in pools pose special risk to anyone concerned with the health of their eyes. He points out that the major concern isn’t the components people know about. It’s the fact that any given pool will essentially be a mix of multiple unknown items. He notes that the two most sensitive areas to this kind of chemical irritation are eyes and lungs.
Protecting lungs against the chemical fumes from a pool can be best accomplished by simply favoring outdoor pools over indoor pools. Free flowing air will always do a better job of dispersing fumes than simple climate control systems. Additionally, it’s important to use swim goggles if there’s any concern over eye safety. Getting chlorine in one’s eye can sting. But the larger concern is the mix of other random chemicals that are coming into contact with one’s eyes. Thankfully, these precautions should safeguard people’s eye health during a swim.
A doctor in the UK scheduled a routine cataract surgery for a woman who was experiencing symptoms from cataracts. The doctor placed her in the operating room where he found more than what he was bargaining for. What he found in the woman’s eye was instead a blue mass. This mass however was more than what he thought it was.
The 67 year old woman entered the doctors office for what she described to be dry eyes and loss of some vision in her right eye. He scheduled her for surgery and that is when he found the mass on her eye.
For some people, they feel that they don’t look good in glasses or they would rather not wear them in general. In this case, a woman wore contacts for a number of years and her contacts had never given her any kind of problems. She had lost the contacts over and over again and had no idea where they had went to. Instead of going to the doctor and explaining that this was happening, she continued to put more contacts in.
When the doctor found the mass in her eye, he removed it to find 17 lenses that were stuck together and then 10 more lenses beneath the mass in the eye. No one had ever seen this or experienced this prior to the procedure taking place. What baffled the doctors even more than the fact that there was this amount of contacts, the fact that the patient had not experienced any kind of infection or loss of sight prior to this surgery. Before the surgery, the woman complained of experiencing dry eyes but nothing more than that. It was a complete shock when the doctor stumbled across this during his surgical procedure. The woman should have experienced irritation from the lenses prior to this however she did not.
Over the past few years, many states across the country have enacted laws that have legalized marijuana for either recreational or medicinal use. Those that use marijuana should be aware of all of the ways it could affect your body. One area of your body that could be impacted, both good and bad, by marijuana are your eyes. A recent news article has pointed out all of the different ways that your eyes could be affected through the use of marijuana on a regular basis (https://thefreshtoast.com/cannabis/how-cannabis-affects-eye-health/).
One way that marijuana can impact your eyes is by affecting their appearance. Those that use marijuana can end up seeing their eyes become redder and appear more irritated. Those that are allergic to the drug could actually ended up seeing a much redder appearance than other people. This could then end up resulting in dryer eyes, inflammation, and tearing.
While eyes can appear different when using cannabis, they can also have a different level of activity and efficiency. Some recent studies have found that cannabis can actually end up temporarily make your eyes stronger. Those that use the drug may be able to see more clearly, be more focused, and even see better at night. However, many of these abilities are then lost due to the fact that cannabis can slow your overall senses and reactiveness.
Those that suffer from eye related illnesses could also benefit from using the drug. Glaucoma is a very common eye disease in which the optic nerve is affected. Those that use the drug will often receive some form of relief from the discomfort that the disease creates. Because of this relief, glaucoma is often one of the most common reasons why the drug is prescribed for medicinal use for patients. This use is likely to increase in the future.
Cataracts and old age is what led a woman to see a doctor about eye problems she was experiencing. What she was experiencing however did not come from either of those problems.
The 67 year old woman had been wearing contacts for many years and year after year, she was losing contacts. What she thought to be simple falling out of the contact was actually far different from that assumption.
A number of optometrists entered into a surgical room where the room was receiving treatment for what they thought was a cataract problem. In turn, this large blue mass was instead something more. The mass turned out to be 17 contacts stuck together on the eye with 10 more underneath it. The mass should have been felt by the patient however she claimed to have only experienced dry eyes.
This particular woman had been wearing the disposable contacts for up to 35 years however she had not went to any of her yearly doctor visits. She was aware that the lenses were missing however only became worried when the eyes became sore and irritated. Once the lenses were removed from the patient, she spoke of experiencing better vision as well as to being more comfortable following the removal of 27 contact lenses from the eye.
What the doctors could not understand either is the fact that the woman had never developed an infection or that she was not fully blind from the lost contact lenses. These things can happen if the individual wears a contact lens longer than they are supposed to. The use of contact lens should be followed closely with your doctor as well as patients attending routine doctor visits for the patient receiving contacts. Even more so, a patient who sleeps with contacts in can also cause other eye problems such as eye ulcers.
