How the Eyes See

Any discussion of “flat” is incomplete and uninformed without an understanding of how the eyes actually see. I’m not talking about “we see at 30 frames per second” or anything quite as simple as that. I’m talking about understanding how shot calling really works, and how that affects not only what we perceive as “flat” …

Dynamic First Aid – Lone Star Medics

It’s been a looooooong time since I’ve had any formal training in first aid. Probably 25 years? Think: Boy Scout First Aid merit badge.
