People Ignored On Facebook Feel Isolation, Less ‘Meaningful Life’ Other Research Shows “The Opposite”

May 13, 2014

New research published in the journal Social Influence analyzes how Facebook  communication has affected people’s feelings of their own social value and self-esteem. The study finds that the more Facebook likes and comments that a person receives, the more likely they are to feel positive about themselves. On the other hand, the fewer likes and comments responding to a person’s status reflected feelings of loneliness and low self-worth. Some participants who did not receive feedback showed “lower levels of belonging, self-esteem, control and meaningful existence,” write the researchers.

While other research study indicates because  your life is meaningless  you’re on Facebook.

December 1, 2012

A new study has found that living a stressful life may lead to shrinking in important parts of the brain. Researchers at Yale University saw reductions in the amount of gray matter in parts of the brain that control physiological and emotional functioning in those who endured significant amounts of stress. According to a press release on Yale’s website, the study observed over 100 healthy participants by conducting magnetic resonance imaging scans while they  answered questions about potentially traumatic life events, including the losing of a loved one, job or home.

Ask The Eye, Reader Rejects Naming Her Child Vulva, How About The Name Seven You Can Bend It Like Beckham

November 28, 2012

Dear Eye View

My husband and I are expecting our first child, a girl, around Christmas. We thought nothing could sadden us during this happy time, but were shocked last week to hear that my husband’s mother was taken from us in an auto accident. In his grief, my husband asked that we name our daughter after his late mother. The problem is that my mother in law’s name was Vulva, and I just can’t fathom giving my child such a horrid name. I had been thinking something along the lines of Virginia or Lou Ann. I told my husband I would think about it, but he’s pressing the issue, and I need to tell him something. Am I being selfish for not wanting to name my child Vulva, even under these circumstances?


Dear Desperate

I understand your desperation. Tell your husband you feel uncomfortable naming your child after a body part and there are other wonderful names his mother would aprove. For instance, I have always liked the name Seven. It’s Mickey Mantle’s number. So not only is it a beautiful name, it is also a living tribute to Mickey and your mother- in- law. If he objects you can always use it as a middle name. You can bend it like Beckham. Hope this helps.



Ask The Eye Consider Being An Architect

September 16, 2012

Dear Eye View

We are friends with a couple who both have successful careers but they drive me a little crazy. “David” was accepted to medical school but dropped out to get an MBA, not an M.D. “Laura” went to law school, but didn’t take the bar. David tells everyone he’s a doctor but doesn’t practice, and Laura says she’s a lawyer. Every so often Laura will say to people, “Why don’t you ask David about your son’s illness, he’s a doctor.” Are they misrepresenting themselves? Am I wrong to be so annoyed by this? Not a Doctor

Dear NAD

I understand your concern.According to the American Bar Association, law school graduates who have not passed the bar should not call themselves lawyers. But David might need an attorney if he continues to hold himself out as a doctor and dispenses medical advice. Tell your friend to go to architecture school. It really doesn’t take that long.. Hope this helps.


Captain of Italian Cruise Ship Said He Tripped Into Lifeboat Said He Acted Bravely As A Leader To Lead The Way

January 18, 2012

The captain of the Italian cruise ship gave a slapstick explanation of how he ended up safely in a lifeboat instead of going down with his ship, saying he tripped and fell into the boat as it was being lowered into the sea, Italian media reported today.

“I had no intention of escaping,” Francesco Schettino, 52, said during his first court hearing Tuesday, according to Italy’s Corriere della Sera newspaper.

“I was helping some passengers put the life boat to sea. At a certain point the mechanism for lowering it, blocked. We had to force it. Suddenly the system unblocked itself and I tripped and I found myself inside the life boat with a number of passengers.”

Once in the lifeboat that was lowered into the sea, Schettino insisted to the court that it was “impossible to go back onboard.”

George Costanza’s Baby Name Stolen Yet Again! Beckham

July 13, 2011

London, July 12 (ANI): David and Victoria Beckham’s new baby girl, Harper Seven, has already become a trending topic on Twitter, with fans and industry insiders flooding the social networking site with their best guesses on what could be the inspiration behind her name.

“Harper is an old English name, something Victoria has always liked. Seven is a very lucky happy number and the baby was born just after 7am, in the seventh month,” the Daily Mail quoted a close friend of the couple as saying.

Some are speculating that the couple took inspiration from a classic episode of the cult sitcom Seinfeld, in which George Costanza decides that Seven is the perfect name for his own baby.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, he is ridiculed by all those around him. Ironically, he then explains it is not only a name but a ‘tribute’ to New York Yankees legend Mickey Mantle.

Like David Beckham, the baseball star wore the number 7


George is not happy with this..


Massive 55′ Sea Creature Reported In China, Never Mind Its A Whale

June 23, 2011

A massive sea creature has washed up on a beach in Guangdong, China. So badly decayed it cannot be positively identified, the “sea monster” is 55 feet long and weights approximately 4.5 tons, according to The Sun.

Upon seeing a photo of the carcass, three marine biology experts — Scott Baker of Oregon State University Marine Mammal Institute, Bill Perrin, senior scientist for marine mammals at the National Marine Fisheries Service, and Bob Brownell, senior scientist for international protected resources with the National Atmospheric and Oceanic Administration’s Fisheries Service — all think it’s a whale.

The beast is tangled in ropes, and locals theorize that area fisherman once caught it but could not haul it in owing to its gargantuan size. According to The Sun, people have flocked to see the sea creature despite its foul stench.

Volunteer Census Worker.. Was That Wrong??

May 10, 2010

LOUISVILLE (WHAS11) – A volunteer Census worker who made his rounds earlier this week is now accused of returning to a physically handicapped woman’s home this weekend and beating her and raping her.

WHAS11’s Adrianna Hopkins was in Pekin, Indiana on Sunday where the crime happened, and spoke to the neighbors and friends of both the victim, and the accused.

“I had no reason to be afraid or anything of him,” said Debbie Bishop. “He was just a nice ordinary person.”

That’s what Bishop thought last Tuesday when she met Daniel Miller. The self-employed tile-layer and volunteer Census worker drove up her road, stopping at the homes listed on his Census forms.

The two had a short conversation and she answered all of his Census questions.

“He just seemed really nice, he was actually he was over friendly,” Bishop said

Miller stated, “Was that wrong? Should I not have done that? I tell you, I gotta plead ignorance on this thing, because if anyone had said anything to me at all when I first started here that that sort of thing is frowned upon… you know, cause I’ve worked in a lot of offices, and I tell you, people do that all the time.”
