WASHINGTON Nike Air Huarache Ultra , Nov. 4 (Xinhua) -- U.S. researchers who tested Google Glass said Tuesday the head-mounted display systems may create a partial peripheral vision obstruction, causing blind spots that may affect safety while doing routine tasks such as driving.


Interest in the wearable head-mounted display systems for general consumers has been growing, with multiple models in production. However, their effect on vision is largely unknown.


Peripheral visual field, a main component of vision, is essential for daily activities such as driving Nike Air Huarache , pedestrian safety, and sports.


In the new study, Tsontcho Ianchulev of the University of California, San Francisco, and colleagues compared performance on visual field tests with Google Glass vs. regular eyewear to quantify their effect on visual function.


Perimetric visual testing, a measurement of vision field Cheap Air Huarache , was conducted in three healthy individuals with good vision, first with the wearable device, followed by regular eyewear of similar color and temple width, which was used as a control frame.


The results demonstrated significant blind spots in all the three participants while wearing the device, creating "a clinically meaningful visual field obstruction in the upper right quadrant," the researchers wrote.


The researchers also analyzed 132 images of people wearing the product and facing the camera Air Huarache Sale , obtained from an Internet search, in a bid to assess how the devices are worn by general consumers.


The analysis indicated that many people wear the device near or overlapping their pupillary axis, which may induce blind spots and interfere with daily function.


The researchers admitted that the study is limited by the small number of participants, who may not be representative of all users, and that a larger sample is needed.


"Additional studies are needed to understand the effects of these devices on visual function, particularly as their use becomes increasingly common Air Huarache Womens ," they concluded.


The study was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).


BEIJING, Oct. 25 (Xinhua) -- A leading think tank expects lower gross domestic product (GDP) growth but better structure in China in coming years.


Yu Bin, head of macro economics with the development research center of the State Council, has said that China would shift steadily toward a "new normal economic state".


China's Q4 GDP is expected to rise 7.4 percent after a five-year low of 7.3 percent in Q3, said Yu on Friday.


He said the slump of old pillar industries after reaching peaks has dragged on the country's economy, but maintaining China's macro policies will be beneficial to economic restructuring.


Despite of overall slowing  Air Huarache Mens , some sectors had outstanding performances such as stable employment, increased profits and income and more consumption.


"China's annual growth target will be around 7 percent in 2015," Yu said. "Such growth is likely to continue in the next decade because of huge potential and long-term reforms."


Real estate and exports -- China's two old pillars -- have both entered a new stage that crazy surges are becoming stable expansion, reflecting the balanced "new normal" economy, Yu said.


"The new normal pursues targets of higher fiscal revenue, more employment Air Huarache Shoes , better livelihoods, lower risks and sustainable development," he added.


SYDNEY, Nov. 20 (Xinhua) -- Leading Australian experts have called on the country's governments to hold tobacco companies accountable for damage done to people's health by taking them to court.


In an article published in the Medical Journal of Australia, public health experts from Macquarie University and Curtin University called on state and federal governments to seek remuneration from tobacco companies for the burden put on the public health system by smoking-related illnesses.


The authors, led by Macquarie University Health Studies lecturer Ross Mackenzie Air Huarache Ultra , said that Australia could use Canada, where the province of British Columbia's right to sue the tobacco industry was upheld by the Supreme Court, as a precedent.


"An estimated 2.6 million adult Australians were smokers in 2014, and smoking remains the country's leading preventable cause of death and disease," they wrote.


"It causes 15, 000 deaths annually and is likely to kill two-thirds of current users. Annual health Air Huarache , social and economic costs of smoking were estimated at more than $31.5 billion in 2008, and are now considered to be substantially greater."


Mackenzie and colleagues said there were lessons to be learnt from the Canadian experience.


"A major recovery in Australian litigation could potentially push an Australian subsidiary of a global cigarette manufacturer into bankruptcy, depriving plaintiffs of the opportunity to recover full damages... (It is) imperative that the parent (tobacco) companies remain as defendants in legal actions in order to satisfy the large damage awards necessary to provide just financial compensation," they said.


"Beyond the potential to recover billions of dollars spent on treatment of diseases caused by smoking, publicity around legal action would also emphasize the health and social impacts of tobacco industry corporate behaviour, furthering the denormalization of smoking in Australia and generating public and political support for further public health measures."
