http://www.chicemma.com Founder Chris Koerner wants to raise $10,000 to get the company off the ground. AFP RELAXNEWS Comment Kickstarter/Twice Used A clock made from old iPhones. Twice Used aims to upcycle parts from abandoned smartphones into household objects. Currently seeking funding on Kickstarter, Twice Used is an initiative to create everyday objects (jewelry, photo frames, tables, wall clocks, etc.) from broken or discarded iPhones. The idea is to make the materials from old smartphones useful again and to limit the amount of electronic waste that goes into landfills.
The group were so quick that police don't know the robbers race, ethnicity or even their genders. Detectives estimate they got away with $100,000 in jewelry and they're afraid they may strike again. "With armed offenders like this pulling off such a bold and brazen robbery, the potential for confrontation, or some more serious events, could have taken place," said Detective James McLellan, with the Irving Police Department. Police think the group may try and pawn the jewelry, or could begin bragging about the robbery to friends. "We're hoping that somebody out there overheard a discussion or something that may lead us to the identity of the robbers, or business owners like pawn shop owners or jewelry store owners may have information about jewelry taken in from this robbery," McLellan added.
In fact, the American Academy of Ophthalmology issued a recent statement decrying the procedure and warning patients to take note about its potential dangers. "[There is not] sufficient evidence to support the safety or therapeutic value of this procedure," stated the group to MyFoxNY.com. It goes on to warn consumers to "avoid placing in the eye any foreign body or material that is not approved by the FDA." But people like Luckayanko are hardly phased by these warnings. More concerned about showing off to their friends and family their alleged uniqueness, she and others are more than willing to throw down stacks of cash to be among the first to have the metal objects placed in their eyes, even though the long-term safety of the procedure has never been verified. "My concern would be that it might cause foreign body granuloma or scar tissue," says Wayne Bizer, D.O., a comprehensive ophthalmologist from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, who disapproves of the procedure for its safety risks.
