Importantly, Lahav and Mioduser (2005, 2008) have demonstrated that, when exploring virtual spaces, people who are blind use more and different strategies than when exploring real physical spaces, and develop relatively accurate spatial representations of them. The present paper describes the design, development and evaluation of a system in which a virtual environment may be explored by people who are blind using Nintendo Wii devices, with auditory and haptic feedback. The nature of the various types of feedback is considered, with the aim of creating an intuitive and usable system.
Far North Queensland was a brilliant way to end my adventures on the road. Once again I was in that familiar humidity I grew up in. This time, surrounded by endless fields of sugar cane, cocoa plantations AND most unexpected, a young vanilla industry.

I have recommended to Engineering staff to delay the Jenifer St reconstruction project until next year. After consideration of community concerns regarding the impact of vibrations on historic buildings; the lack of consensus about narrowing by 2′ or maintaining the existing width of Jenifer (40′) given Engineering’s proposal to construct “bulb outs” at bus stops which would bring the bus loading zone into the parking lane along the full length of the bus stop and create a condition where buses are loaded and unloaded while the bus is in the traffic lane; and the uncertainty about Central Parks readiness to become the new home of the Eastside Farmers Market, I believe there are too many unresolved issues to move forward at this time. City Engineering has agreed to my request.
Supporters of the bill argue that requiring gun permits undermine Second Amendment protections and that violent criminals don obey the law. Bill sponsor Republican Rep. Ben Smaltz of Auburn said he expected the Legislature would dedicate the $3.5 million in permit applications fees that police and sheriff departments now collect and spend on equipment and training..
