Metro

Boxers Adrian Firkins (silver & black shorts) and Ricky Welsby (black and gold shorts) pictured after their fight, proposing to their partners at a charity boxing event at the Copthorne Hotel in Brierley Hill, West Midlands.  See NTI story NTIRING.  A pair of boxers proved they were both lovers and fighters by serving a knockout marriage proposal minutes after a gruelling FIGHT.  Romantic Adrian Firkins, 44, and Ricky Welsby, 24, went toe to toe for three rounds before judges ruled the contest as a draw on Friday (14/3) night.  Fight promoter Pete Jackson, 38, then called Mr Firkinís girlfriend, Debbie Tyler, 41, and Mr Welsbyís other half Nikki Vyse, 22, to the ring to pose for some ëphotographsí.  But as the women got ready for the snaps, the two out-of-breath fighters were handed the diamond rings from Mr Jackson and immediately dropped to one knee side-by-side to present their girlfriends with them.

Therapeutic Management of Glaucoma

Swank Pharm®

Introduction
•Glaucoma is an eye disease in which the optic nerve is damaged in a characteristic pattern.
•This can permanently damage vision in the affected eye(s) and lead to blindness if left untreated.
•It is normally associated with increased fluid pressure in the eye (aqueous humour).

20140313-125038.jpg

Pathophysiology and Etiology of Glaucoma
•Of the several causes for glaucoma, ocular hypertension (increased pressure within the eye) is the most important cause in most glaucomas, but in some populations, only 50% of people actually have elevated ocular pressure.
•Intra-ocular pressure rises when there is an imbalance between production and drainage of aqueous humour in the eye.

Risk factors
•Old age
•Family history of glaucoma
•Thinner central corneal thickness
•Raised intra-ocular pressure is an important risk factor for glaucoma

Classification of glaucoma
Glaucoma is classified as open-angle or angle-closure depending on the mechanism of the obstruction of drainage.

Arsenal aren’t the bad guys as they cut Liverpool’s FA Cup ticket allocation

The system needs a revamp.

Metro

Arsenal are at it again.

Not content with being the only club in the history of football to charge high prices to away fans, they have now become the first to restrict the numbers of away fans at an FA Cup tie.

They should be ashamed of themselves.

MORE: Liverpool fans win fight for cheap tickets

Of course, the above is not strictly true, plenty of clubs charge ridiculously high prices to away fans, often for restricted views, and many clubs have, on the advice of safety experts, limited the number of away fans at games. But, because it’s Arsenal and it fits with the narrative of how they screw fans, this is seemingly the only time we hear about it.

As it was announced yesterday that Arsenal would be only offering a reduced allocation to Liverpool for the FA Cup tie next weekend, fans groups went in to overdrive…

A life wrecked by alcohol: Image of woman, 35, dying after decade of alcoholism

Say no to alcoholism.

Metro

This picture of a dying young mother of four shows the true damage of chronic alcohol abuse.

Beverley Pickorer regularly has epileptic seizures and is bed-bound. Her jaundiced skin is paper thin and her teeth are rotting.

The 35-year-old developed liver disease after a decade of alcoholism. At her worst, she drank 24 cans of lager and a bottle of pear cider in the morning, carried on drinking in a nearby pub and had another 16 cans of lager when she went home.

Her four children, aged between six and 15, have been taken into care while she faces certain death.

Her partner, Anthony Howard, said: ‘I’ve been looking after her for five-and-a-half years and she’s constantly been in and out of hospital with liver cirrhosis.

‘She’s the youngest person in this care home. All she can do every day is stay in bed.’

A series of troubled relationships caused…
