ARCATA >> Fireworks were going off at the Arcata Ball Park win or lose Friday night.The Humboldt Crabs just decided to get things going a couple of hours before the regularly scheduled activities were set to go off.On the back of home runs by Ryan Reynolds and James Outman, the Crabs offense got back to doing what it does best — hit the ball all over the yard.

By: Bari Sobelson, LMFTPixabay[Baby Father Hug by Froot, November 21, 2017, CC0]When people think of child abuse and neglect, they often picture a physically and/or psychologically injured child. What they may not immediately picture is that same child as an adult with risky health behaviors, chronic health conditions, low life potential, and early death. What do these have in common? As the number of Adverse Childhood Experiences increases, so does the risk for the potential adult outcomes.On August 17 at 11 am Eastern, Dr. Melissa Merrick from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will be providing a 90-minute webinar on the ACE Study and what it teaches us about maximizing health and well-being.

Former England captain Nasser Hussain has suggested all-rounder Ben Stokes to earn another demerit point in the third Test of the ongoing series against West Indies in order to avoid a ban during the Ashes this summer.Stokes picked up his third demerit point for making an “inappropriate comment” during the second day’s play in the ongoing second Test against West Indies at the Headingley, Leeds.The incident happened in the 101st over of the Windies innings, when Stokes reacted in frustration after being edged by Shai Hope for a boundary by making an inappropriate comment, which was clearly audible through the stump mic and also heard by the match officials.If he gets another demerit point, he would be suspended for either his next Test match or two limited-overs internationals, leaving the possibility of him being out of the first Ashes Test.But if the 26-year-old earns a demerit point in either the third Test or the six white-ball internationals that follow against the West Indies, he would cop a ban but effectively enter the all-important Ashes with a clean slate.”If I were ( England captain Joe) Root I’d be tempted to tell him to get another demerit point during the third Test at Lord’s (against the Windies), so he’d reach the four-point threshold for a ban and miss two of the forthcoming one-day matches, for which he may have been rested anyway, rather than an Ashes game,” cricket.com.au quoted Hussain as saying.The former skipper said that people know that Stokes has a fiery temper and that’s why they will try to get him to react.advertisement”This winter the Aussies will be going at him with subtle little digs around the bat, knowing that he’s liable to gob off and possibly get banned for a Test,” he said.The all-rounder had received one demerit point apiece in October and November 2016 for similar verbal offences.

COLLEGE STATION, TX – OCTOBER 08: Head coach Kevin Sumlin of the Texas A&M Aggies waits on the sideline in the second half of their game against the Tennessee Volunteers at Kyle Field on October 8, 2016 in College Station, Texas. (Photo by Scott Halleran/Getty Images)Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin appears to have had a DM misfire on Twitter this afternoon. A short time ago, Sumlin tweeted a message that included a joke about him being glad he “didn’t pull a Sark after Dark.” That’s a reference to USC head coach Steve Sarkisian’s drunken antics at a Trojans’ booster event last weekend. Of course, as with all DM misfires, Sumlin deleted the tweet, but not before an alert Twitter user captured a screen shot.

TV presenter turned novelist, Judy Finnigan, will be the face of a new BBC Lifeline appeal for Fight for Sight, the main UK charity that’s dedicated to funding pioneering eye research to prevent sight loss and treat eye disease.Judy was keen to support the charity after seeing her mother lose her sight to Age Related Macular Degeneration (AMD), the most common form of sight loss in the over 60’s, when she was in her mid-seventies. Judy’s greatest fear is losing her own sight and she has already received emergency eye operations to prevent her sight from deteriorating.In 2010 Judy had a detached retina in her right eye and had to have several eye operations to correct this. On top of this she has had to have an operation to close a hole that had opened in the macula, as a result of the first procedure.Judy said: “I’ve witnessed first-hand the devastation that sight loss can cause, seeing my mother lose her confidence was heart-breaking. My own experience was extremely difficult and it makes you fully appreciate your sight. It’s something I will never take for granted.“There are some great support charities helping people living with sight loss but Fight for Sight is unique. It’s the main one out there funding research to prevent future generations from losing their sight. I would encourage people to dig deep and help support this worthy cause.”Fight for Sight is currently investing £8m into eye research at 35 universities and hospitals across the country.Michele Acton, Fight for Sight’s Chief Executive said: “I’m grateful that Judy is the face of the appeal. With her first-hand experience of sight loss, she can fully relate to our supporters. Due to the lack of research funding, Fight for Sight can only support one in six research applications and we’re having to turn down key projects.“Thank you to Judy and the BBC for choosing Fight for Sight for their Lifeline appeal. I can not stress how important your money will be in making a difference, allowing us to continue funding pioneering eye research.”The appeal will also feature some of the research Fight for Sight is funding and the people that this research will benefit.Belinda Wilkinson, 78, from Suffolk who like Judy’s late mother and Dame Judi Dench has AMD. In Belinda’s case, her sight is blurred in her left eye and she has lost her central vision in her right eye.Professor Steve Moss at the University College London Institute of Ophthalmology is leading one of these research projects. His research explores AMD and the complement proteins that alter the characteristics of the retinal cells.The Salisbury family, from Kent, is also taking part including Emma Salisbury and her 14-year-old son, Tommy. Tommy was diagnosed with Choroideremia, an inherited condition that affects one in 50,000 people worldwide when he was five years old. This will lead to progressive loss of vision. There is currently no cure.Professor Robert MacLaren from Oxford University will be featured talking about leading the world’s first gene-replacement clinical trial for Choroideremia. Without initial funds from the Salisbury family via Fight for Sight the trial wouldn’t have been possible. The findings have already shown promising results.The appeal will be shown on BBC One, Sunday 20 April at 5pm and is repeated BBC Two Thursday 24 April at 9.45am.Donations for the BBC appeal will open immediately after airing via phone, online, and post. For donations in the meantime, please contact Fight for Sight directly on 0207 264 3900 or visit www.fightforsight.org.ukSource:Fight for Sight
