There has never been a real study of dreams. We take for granted that dreaming is just a way for our brains to slow down, relax and go over the facts of the day. In other words sort out the wheat from the chaff as my mother used to say. The truth lies somewhere in between. I recommend finding a good eye doctor you trust (ask around) and look at your itemized bill and insurance closely to figure out what best for you. I say that my insurance, while not great, is absolutely a better deal than a flex or HSA account when purchasing glasses.

D’Ann was an active member of Michael Servetus Unitarian Society (MSUS). Sat. Nov. I know that there a huge demand for software engineers, and just about everyone can think of the time their company inexplicably hired someone who couldn do FizzBuzz. But if you already been hired as an engineer and you worked there for 1.3 years, at a level comfortable enough where you actually want to keep being an engineer and move on to a “better” company, and you willing to put in 10 20 hours extra a week studying, then you aren not cut out to be an engineer.

If you thought altering your nose or augmenting your breasts was a private, individual decision, think again. In a paper published in the July issue of the Journal of Evolution Technology and discussed yesterday on the New York Times “Idea of the Day” blog, doctoral candidate Kristi Scott argues that undergoing cosmetic plastic surgery nose jobs, boob jobs, chin augmentation and the like allows us to “cheat our naturally predetermined appearances.” This is to say, “what we see on the outside is not necessary what we are going to get on the inside, genetically speaking.” The problem with this kind of genetic subterfuge boils down, as Social Darwinism always does, to the question of survival of the fittest (or unfittest, as the case may be): “Without these self identified unwanted physical attributes,” Scott writes, “people who otherwise might not have been perceived as desirable mates for procreation” the genetic untouchables “allow themselves to be perceived as desirable enough to pass on their genes.” The genetically flawed but surgically corrected person may mate and reproduce, passing on an “undesirable’ attribute” small breasts, say, or enormous ears, drooping eyelids or a crooked nose. Without surgery, this person may have been too ugly to attract a partner, and the altered attribute would likely not have been replicated..
