The profoundly deaf girl who found her voice after brain surgery

Image

Seven-year-old Leia Armitage lived in total silence for the first two years of her life, but thanks to pioneering brain surgery and years of therapy she has found her voice and can finally tell her parents she loves them.
"We were told you could put a bomb behind her and she wouldn't hear it at all if it went off," said Leia's father, Bob, as he recalled finding out their baby daughter had a rare form of profound deafness.
Leia, from Dagenham in Essex, had no inner ear or hearing nerve, meaning that even standard hearing aids or cochlear implants wouldn't help her.
As a result, she was never expected to speak - but despite the risks, her parents fought for her to be one of the first children in the UK to be given an auditory brainstem implant, requiring complex brain surgery when she was two years old.
NHS England calls the surgery "truly life-changing" and has said it will fund the implant for other deaf children in a similar position.
It is estimated that about 15 children a year will be assessed for the procedure and nine will go on to have surgery.

Boston orchestra finds child who blurted 'wow!' during performance

Image

Group wanted to reward the youngster's enthusiasm for classical music

A performing arts group has found the child who was audibly wowed by a recent classical music concert.

The Handel & Haydn Society had just finished a rendition of Mozart's Masonic Funeral at Boston's Symphony Hall on Sunday when a youngster exclaimed, "Wow!"

The group was so charmed that they launched a search for the "Wow Child" with the help of audio of the moment captured by WCRB-FM.

The sailing cargo ship Kwai docked in Honolulu last month after a 25-day voyage with 40 tonnes of fishing nets and consumer plastics aboard, gathered from what has become known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

The latest annual clean-up voyage by the non-profit Ocean Voyages Institute (OVI) used satellite imagery to specifically target discarded fishing gear. More than half a million tonnes of plastic nets - so-called ghost nets - are abandoned each year in oceans across the world, entangling and killing up to 380,000 sea mammals.

The circulating ocean current known as the North Pacific Gyre is believed to contain 1.8 trillion plastic items weighing over 80,000 tonnes. Covering an expanse of ocean three-times the size of France, the Great Pacific Garbage Patch lies between Hawaii and California.

OVI has mounted nine previous clean-up voyages to the area but says its latest haul was the largest and most successful to date.

...

Environmentalists have removed nearly 40 tonnes of trash from the Pacific

I'd suggest you'd be incorrect
