She did not mention that a second Guy was also a suspect and was also interviewed. Nor did she consider my constitutional right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty. Abby How can anyone in this situation Clear his name after what this Blabbermouth said ? unfortunately my innocence was proven later a when the girl gave birth to months and three Days after my last Date with her a longtime Reader dear Reader you could sue for defamation of character but that would require proving that the gossip damaged you. You would also have to provide witnesses to testify that a the old Biddy blabbed if its any contortion you re in prestigious company.

Of psf apr r Enterprise Assn Johns Hopkins developing new lipreading computer by Valerie Meehan the associated press allergies can cause bad sinus problems int or. Lamb for the last three years i have had trouble breathing through my nose. In the summer months no problem. The trouble is in the Early Spring or late fall and Winter. In the fall if in a exposed to pretty Strong wind i will have to sit up at night to breathe through my nose a no trouble breathing through my Mouth. This condition continues and i have a cold about All the time and cough up quite a bit of mucus. One or the other of my nostrils stays stopped up and both Are moist All the time. This is worse at night than in the daytime. I live on a farm and if in a out working i Seldom notice this condition or hard breathing. My doctor said it was an allergy so he gave me a shot and some Antibiotic pills. That lasted about 30 Days. Then the same thing occurred again and another doctor gave me antibiotics and they did no to do any Good. Is there some kind of surgery that would cure this is this sinus trouble ? i neither smoke nor drink. During attacks i put Neo syn Ephrine in health doctor Lamb my nostrils and get Quick Relief for about six hours. Dear Reader since you have already seen a family doctor i think you should see an allergist. Mechanical obstruction of the nose can cause difficulty breathing through the nose but that should be persistent. The seasons you describe Are confusing but you can have allergic rhinitis at any time of the year from a variety of different things that cause an allergy. I would even wonder about your heating system As a possible source of allergy. Allergies do cause sinus prob lems and the treatment is for the allergy. Antibiotics do not help allergies. They May relieve associated infections. Allergic rhinitis which is what we Are talking about May cause persistent symptoms of a cold when it is actually an allergy and not an infection. I have discussed such conditions in special report 39, a help for allergic rhinitis a which i am sending you. Others who want this report can Send $2 with a Long stamped self addressed envelope for it to the health letter dept. 39, . Box 19622, Irvine Calif. 92713. Identifying and avoiding the cause of an allergy is the Best treatment. In addition antihistamines can be used. Some Low dose nasal sprays that contain corticosteroids that Are not dangerous Are helpful. And in some cases nasal rom Spray can be used on a regular basis to prevent attacks. Daar or. Lamb i eat out in restaurants several times a week. Lately in be become suspicious that i must be sensitive to mag Mon sodium glutamate. Two to three hours after in be eaten i become ill with flu like symptoms. I feel generally ill with severe stomach cramps and diarrhoea. This lasts from four to five hours and sometimes into the next Day. I have asked if they use mag and am usually told no. I do not become ill when i prepare my own food. Dear Reader there Are Many things besides mag that can cause food intolerance including sulfite in a variety of food. Mag is simply one unit of sodium attached to one unit of glut Mic acid a an amino acid common in the protein in your food. It is a sodium Salt. It has been used for centuries without ill effect. Some people who have thought they had a sensitivity to mag have been proved not to. But some people can be sensitive to mag just As some Are sensitive to tomatoes or any number of other foods in common use by the Public.

There Are 231 Days left in the year. Today a highlight in history on May 14,1948, the Independent state of Israel was proclaimed in Tel Aviv As British Rule in Palestine came to an end.

Movie producer George Lucas is 46. Actress Francesca Annis is 46. Actress season Hubley is 39. Rock artist David Byrne is 38. Thought for today Quot life was a funny thing that occurred on the Way to the Quentin Crisp English author 1908. Baltimore a done to try to whisper secrets around the new computer at Johns Hopkins University. Its learning to read lips. A decade Short of the Century when Hal the voice activated computer in the movie "2001 a space Odyssey talked eavesdropped and read lips scientists arc developing the rudimentary techniques that could make a Hal possible. Ben Yuhas a doctoral candidate in electrical and computer engineering has a More immediate goal. By teaching a computer to lip read Yuhas Hopes to improve the Quality of speech recognition systems a machines that operate on verbal commands. Yuhas is training a computer to use sight to filter sounds much As people watch each others faces when conversing in a noisy room. A the idea is to use the visual signal to clean up the acoustical signal because that is the Way humans do it Quot Yuhas said. Because existing speech recognition systems operate poorly when there is a lot of background noise their application is limited. But applications could include air plane cockpits where a Pilot giving voice commands would have his hands free a factory floor or courtroom even a car phone that could dial while the Driver kept both hands on the wheel. Yuhas using a a neural network program on a digital computer trained the computer to read the lips of a Man pronouncing vowels on a video laser disc while the computer listened to the voice on a separate track corrupted by background noise. The computer gradually improved its ability to identify sounds after looking at the picture and listening to the sound. Yuhas has also begun teaching the computer diphthongs and simple sentences but he said commercial application is Likely years away. Neural network programs mod eled on biological systems depart from conventional digital computers where processing is sequential and the rules governing How the computer thinks have to be reprogrammed. Computers that use neural networks create their own problem solving pathways As they go. Terry Sejnowski a cognitive neuroscientist at the University of California san Diego and Leader in the neural network Field said Yuhas on an elementary level trained a computer to accomplish what people instinctively do assimilate a lot of information from diverse sources and make sense of it. Quot this is not an isolated example but one of Many advances that we re seeing and will continue to see where neural networks Are applied to major unsolved problems in speech processing in vision research and in motor control a said Sejnowski who supervised Yuhasz thesis. The Field of neural networks has provided scientists with Quot great insight into How the brain works and thus has led to advances in training computers to recognize patterns said Anthony n. Michel Dean of the University of notre Dames College of engineering.
