Kenyan runner Egla Musop Jebichii, 28, who is partially blind, poses with her 3rd position medal won in Dubai to qualify to run in the Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro this year, Iten, western Kenya, April 11, 2016. Jebichii is married to an athlete and has one son, who is five. In Kenya's western town of Iten, known as the "Home of Champions" for drawing runners to train from around the world, athletes rise to pound the track and dirt roads at dawn. Kenyan athletics champions like marathon world record holder Dennis Kimetto and 800 metre champion David Rudisha have trained there, alongside Britain's double Olympic and world champion Mo Farah and a host of others. At 2,400 metres (7,900 feet), the altitude makes Iten an ideal location for established middle and long distance races to build their endurance and stamina.

ARGENTINES PROTEST AS BANKS REMAIN CLOSED FOR MOST OPERATIONS.
A bank depositor bangs a monkey wrench against a railing while lying on the
front step of a Banco Provincia branch during a protest against the
government of President Eduardo Duhalde, as banks reopened for five hours,
only for bill payments and deposits, for the first time since the Duhalde
administration ordered them shut a week earlier to stop a run from
collapsing the system, April 26, 2002. Ordinary Argentines, resigned to life
with no cash after a week without banks, saw little hope of relief in a
partial opening of banks and planned to ration themselves over the weekend.
The sign behind says, "Crooks. They left Justice blind. Return savings."

The mouse acts as the eyes of the partially sighted and blind by helping them view computer graphics through touch. Manufacturers tout the VirTouch systems (VTS), as a quantum leap toward their integration into the world of the sighted. VTS allows the blind to recognise graphic shapes, pictures, play tactile computer games and read text in normal letters or Braille by placing fingers in three pads that respond when a cursor on the computer screen touches a graphic or letter.
