WHAT IS GLAUCOMA?
Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that damage the optic nerve, the health of which is vital for good vision. This damage is often caused by an abnormally high pressure in your eye. Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness for people over the age of 60. It can occur at any age but is more common in older adults. Many forms of glaucoma have no warning signs. The effect is so gradual that you may not notice a change in vision until the condition is at an advanced stage. SYMPTOMS The signs and symptoms of glaucoma vary depending on the type and stage of your condition. For example: OPEN-ANGLE GLAUCOMA • Patchy blind spots in your side (peripheral) or central vision, frequently in both eyes • Tunnel vision in the advanced stages ACUTE ANGLE-CLOSURE GLAUCOMA • Severe headache • Eye pain • Nausea and vomiting • Blurred vision • Halos around lights • Eye redness CAUSES Glaucoma is the result of damage to the optic nerve. As this nerve gradually deteriorates, blind spots develop in your visual field. For reasons that doctors don't fully understand, this nerve damage is usually related to increased pressure in the eye. Glaucoma tends to run in families. In some people, scientists have identified genes related to high eye pressure and optic nerve damage. GLAUCOMA IS ONE OF THE LEADING CAUSES OF IRREVERSIBLE BLINDNESS, BUT WITH EARLY TREATMENT, THE DAMAGE MAY BE LIMITED AND SIGHT MAY BE SAVED. WHEN TO SEE A DOCTOR Promptly go to an emergency room or an ophthalmologist's office if you experience some of the symptoms of acute angleclosure glaucoma, such as severe headache, eye pain and blurred vision. If left untreated, glaucoma will eventually cause blindness. Even with treatment, about 15 percent of people with glaucoma become blind in at least one eye within 20 years. PREVENTION These self-care steps can help you detect glaucoma in its early stages, which is important in preventing vision loss or slowing its progress. • Get regular dilated eye examinations • Know your family's eye health history • Exercise safely • Take prescribed eyedrops regularly • Wear eye protection

A CHIMNEY SWEEP IS A RELIABLE WAY TO PREVENT A CHIMNEY FIRE Your chimney is a ventilation system that allows smoke, toxins and dangerous fumes to escape the home. With a clean chimney, all these dangerous fumes can freely leave your house. With time, creosote appears in a dirty chimney. Creosote is a black, sticky residue and is highly flammable, making it one of the main causes of chimney fires. If debris like bird’s nests, twigs, or leaves get lodged into your chimney, they can alsoyour easily catchhome fire when you startbusiness using your fireplace. to appointments be done at can be made or for all services premises

____________ Last months answer - BACKBREAKING
I just wonder what it would be like to be reincarnated in an animal whose species had been so reduced in numbers than it was in danger of extinction. What would be its feelings toward the human species whose population explosion had denied it somewhere to exist. I must confess that I am tempted to ask for reincarnation as a particularly deadly virus. Prince Philip

MAY SUGURU PUZZLE SAMPLE PUZZLE Suguru puzzles are quite different than Sudoku - you'll see that the grid is subdivided into containers or cages with heavy lines, each of which is 1 to 5 cells in size. You need to fill each container with unique digits, counting up from 1. So for example a 2-square container contains the numbers 1 and 2. A 5-square container contains the numbers from 1 to 5. Adjacent (touching) cells may never contain the same number, and this includes diagonally adjacent cells. That's it!

UPDATE ON THE ST FRANCIS BAY CCTV CAMERAS The SFPO NPC has three projects funded by the SRA levy: • River, Spit and Beach • Roads • CCTV Cameras The CCTV system performs a 24/7 monitoring service that provides an effective deterrent to criminals targeting the St Francis Bay area. The cameras include: Licence plate recognition (LPR): 303,766 licence plates were registered on our roads in February 2021, with 159 being identified as positive alerts and followed up by Atlas, Calibre or SAPS Analytic cameras: a number of our cameras have AI software that monitors their zones and alerts any suspicious activity to the Control Centre operators. In February this year, there were 1,062 analytic activations which generated 52 reactive callouts by Calibre Security. PTZ: follow people’s movements and be operated by Control Room staff to follow and zoom in on anything suspicious. These are situated around our primary beaches. The NPC is satisfied that the CCTV system operates effectively and are in negotiations to implement our continuous improvement policy. To assist with responses, there is now local access to live and recorded footage. We have also been approached by various parties (streets, river estates) to possibly extend our camera network into their areas at their own cost. Any queries wrt the CCTV Cameras please contact Lyn Aitken. email@example.com

you DidKNOW ? 12 BIZARRE, RANDOM FACTS
1. Flamingos bend their legs at the ankle, not the knee. They essentially stand on tiptoe. Their knees are closer to the body and are covered by feathers.
2. Sloths can hold their breath longer than dolphins can. By slowing their heart rates, sloths can hold their breath for up to 40 minutes. 3. It’s impossible to hum while holding your nose. You just tested it, didn’t you? Normally, when you hum, the air is able to escape through your nose to create the sound, and of course, it can’t do that when you’re holding it shut. 4. People used to say “prunes” instead of “cheese” when having their pictures taken. In the 1840s, a big—dare we say, cheesy—grin was seen as childish, so one London photographer told people to say “prunes” to keep their mouths taut. 5. Lobsters taste with their feet. Tiny bristles inside a lobster’s little pincers are their equivalent to human taste buds. Meanwhile, lobsters’ teeth are in one of their three stomachs. 6. The British royal family is named after Windsor. You’d think Windsor Castle was named after the House of Windsor, but it’s the other way around. The royal family changed its name from Saxe-Coburg-Gotha in 1917 so it would sound less German and chose Windsor because they had ties with the English town. 7. Blue whale tongues can weigh as much as an elephant. Their hearts, meanwhile, can weigh almost a ton and needs to beat just once every ten seconds. 8. The world’s largest waterfall is underwater. Yes, there are waterfalls under the ocean. At the Denmark Strait, the cold water from the Nordic Sea is denser than the Irminger Sea’s warm water, making it drop almost two miles down at 123 million cubic feet per second. 9. The Statue of Liberty used to be a lighthouse. About a month after the statue’s 1886 dedication, it became a working lighthouse for 16 years, with its torch visible from 38 kilometers away. 10. The Eiffel Tower was originally intended for Barcelona. The Spanish city thought the design was too ugly, so Gustave Eiffel pitched it to Paris instead, 11. There are only 5 countries in the world that don’t have airports - Vatican City, San Marino, Monaco, Liechtenstein and Andorra. 12. Michelangelo wrote a poem about how much he hated painting the Sistine Chapel.
