HD isn’t just for Major League Baseball clubs anymore. In a first for Minor League Baseball, the Durham Bulls (Triple-A – Tampa Bay Rays) vs LeHigh Valley Iron Pigs (Triple-A – Philadelphia Phillies) game on June 28th was broadcast live from the Durham Bulls Athletic Park in high definition. The game was available on MLB Network, which reaches more than 55 million cable, telco and satellite homes nationwide. Through the efforts of MLB Network, Microspace Communications, Explorer Post 50 and Time Warner Cable, the HD broadcast of the game, which was won by the Bulls with a walkoff hit, was available to baseball fans across the country.

According to Bonnie McNay, Manager of Video Services at Microspace “It’s wonderful to add this event to Capitol Broadcasting’s long list of high definition accomplishments”.

Equally exciting was the fact that the entire game was produced on site by Explorer Post 50, a cadre of dedicated high school students sponsored by Fox50 TV and the Bulls.

The Bulls scored two runs in the ninth to rally past Lehigh Valley so it was a good day all around in Durham and for MLB Network.

HD For More Than Your TV – New Technologies Offer Patients High Definition Vision At Any Age

New York, NY (PRWEB) February 3, 2010

Having nearly perfect vision may be attainable at any age with the help of recent technological advancements in eye surgery. In addition to promising 20/20 vision, new corrective lens implants offer the possibility of enhanced clarity for patients young and old.

One such option, called Crystalens HD, is newly available to patients with cataracts. After cataract surgery, which involves the replacement of the eye’s natural lens, the HD implant automatically adjust to correct a patient’s near, intermediate, and distance vision with high definition clarity. The technology, which is produces results similar to those experienced with high definition television, is being being put to the test by cataract surgeons in New York City. The Fifth Avenue Eye Center is one of the first offering the HD lens technology. “With these innovations, cataract patients no longer need to use prescription glasses after surgery and actually experience even further enhancement with the HD clarity post-surgery”, said Dr. Ilan, Director of The Fifth Avenue Eye Center.

Similar lens technologies have gained popularity amongst those who are not candidates for laser vision correction procedures such as PRK, LASEK, or LASIK surgery. The VisianICL implantable contact lens is the latest option available to patients. “When LASIK came out, many glasses and contact lens wearers were excited about the prospect of corrected vision but found they were not eligible to receive the surgery. VisianICL is an exceptional, safe surgical alternative available for a wide range of candidates”, says Dr. Cohen.

Kim Kardashian, Heidi and Spencer, Snooky… More Americans can tell you about these reality television stars than they can about their own local representatives, the President of the United States, or even the city in which they live.  What’s happened? When did this vapid, voyeuristic obsession with reality tv become the national past-time? Move over baseball, The Real Housewives of Orange County are here and you can watch them inject botox, get lipo, or have some other elective surgery currently in fashion this week, in vivid color on your flat screen HD tv.


How did this happen? When did our priorities as a culture take such a seismic shift? Though, it is still possible to find quality programming on our big screen, high definition televisions, one need only look at the ratings to see that most are choosing not to. Scenes of personal depravity and utter stupidity are now cheap entertainment for the masses.  Meanwhile, PBS (The Public Broadcasting Station), which brings our children educational classics such as Sesame Street, levels class barriers by making classical music and operas such as Aida available to everyone and still attempts to inform us with hard-hitting news shows like Frontline, loses more and more public and federal funding every year and is fighting for its very survival.


To make matters worse, satellite television now broadcasts the very worst our country has to offer to millions of viewers around the world, airing our dirty laundry for everyone to see. For years, Europeans have thrown our McDonalds burger and fries, fast-food way of life in our face as proof of our lack of culture, but we’ve been able to balk at the accusation and label their slander as snobbery. Now, however, with the rise of seemingly talentless people becoming famous for no other virtue than their desire to become famous, and our apparent lust to watch them achieve this not so illustrious state, one has to wonder if our accusers may have a point after all. What is the cultural relevance of watching people curse at, backstab, and cheat on each other? And, what kind of cultural legacy are we leaving for the generations to follow?


It feels like such a long time ago when sports were our obsession. That too, may seem to some to be rather shallow. At least, however, with sports we cheered for the very best in very talented human beings. We revered their excellence. Now, we applaud the very lowest in human beings who obviously don’t expect much more of themselves and have reverence for their low expectations.


Perhaps one day people in this culture will turn on their HD tvs, scan the 100+ stations available to them via satellite, and choose something other than Keeping Up With The Kardashians, The Hills, or The Jersey Shore to entertain them.  Maybe, PBS will make a comeback. Maybe, one day people will pay as much attention to their local elections as they do Heidi Pratt’s plastic surgery.  Maybe, our little love affair with this so-called reality tv will end and a more interesting and intellectually challenging cultural phenomenon will appear.
