“Sometimes I can be walking down Dumbarton High Street and suddenly feel I am back in Belfast during the Troubles.” That is the tragic reality for Dumbarton veteran Steve Wylie, who says more must be done in West Dunbartonshire to support those suffering the devastating symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) – the condition he himself has battled for decades. Steve left Southhampton on the Queen Elizabeth II for the Falklands War on May 12, 1982 and served in Northern Ireland between August 1983 to February 1984 and then again from August 1987 to January 1988. Brother of former Redburn mum appeals after "out-of-the-blue" disappearance The 56-year-old signed up to serve when he was just 17 years old and witnessed first-hand the brutality and terror of frontline war.

By Wael Eskander A young black girl is raped and abused by two racist white men, who are then shot by the girl’s father during their trial. This is the premise of ‘A Time to Kill’, a book by John Grisham. In the courtroom drama the lawyer attempts to convince the jury to release the father but finds it difficult to find sympathy in the south. In the movie version the lawyer finally asks the jury to close their eyes and picture the rape, but with a young white girl and two black men. Oftentimes we’re not colour-blind and the many colours of our biases in terms of gender, race, nationality or faith blind us and make us see similar things differently. We sympathise only with those who are of our same race, faith or language but we forget that others we vilify are of the same species. Close your eyes. Imagine children happily playing football on a beach. Imagine the sound of waves and their shouts and giggles as they play. Imagine these serene sounds disrupted by an … [Read more...] about Close your eyes

National Eye Health Week has just taken place and like other awareness campaigns, its aim was to inspire and educate people on the importance of eye health.I’m in glasses denial and spend time oscillating between proclaiming ‘They’re making the writing smaller on these labels’ and researching all the things I can do to keep my eyesight in tip-top condition.It is said the muscles of the eyes are similar to other muscles and the ‘move it or lose it’ mantra that I spout in my yoga classes also applies.Many of our ancestors spent long hours gazing at a horizon of blue sky and had unlimited peripheral vision. Today, we are crowded in and towered over by high-rise buildings and offices and we live in small spaces further limiting our chances to use our distance vision.We spend most of our time doing close-up work and staring at the screens of computers, phones and TVs, which all limit our eye movement and create a lot of near-point stress.Did you know … [Read more...] about Culture: For your eyes only by health guru Carole Baker
