Can joy be found in a life of poverty and hardship?

Accessible World Presents A Discussion Of Sleep Disorders During Our Special Program with WilliamHoos, Outreach Specialist, Vanda Hosted on Tuesday, August 09, 2011

We all long for nights of uninterrupted sleep. As we grow older, difficulty going to sleep or remaining so is a common occurrence for almost half of the blind population. Regulated by our internal body clock and determined by the amount of light in our world, restful sleep eludes us. As night after sleepless night goes by, you count up the methods you’ve made and are amazed at the number of unsuccessful remedies you’ve attempted. If reading a dull book or lying in a quiet room has not brought you the rest you long for, what other options can you try.

ACCESSIBLE WORLD SPECIAL PROGRAM SERIES PRESENTS EDWIN COONEY, PART TWO, ON ABRAHAM LINCOLN, Hosted on Tuesday, March 22, 2011

One of the most significant decisions ever made by an American president was made by President Abraham Lincoln.

It was made public in September of 1862 and it came as a shock to North and South alike.

The decision was to issue a proclamation of Emancipation effecting slavery in states that refused to join the union by January 1st, 1863.

What forces brought that decision about since the president had consistently proclaimed since even before he was elected that slavery would remain untouched, even in the event of war, in the states where it existed.
