This Video Will Melt Your Heart - A Dog Owner Gently Wakes A Deaf And Blind Dog And Brought A Global Audience To Tears
The owner of a blind and deaf 10-month-old dog showed how he learned to wake her so that she was not afraid, and In just five days, the video has been viewed 51 million times and racked up over 12.5 million likes.
Aiden Michael Mann adopted an Australian Shepherd named Plum in July 2019. His colleagues tried to find a owner for her, and as soon as the man saw the poor puppy, he immediately realized that he wanted to take her to him.
Despite the fact that Mann already has one dog, he had to figure out how to accomodate Plum for a long time because of its disability.
The owner was very worried about the fact that Plum was scared every time when he woke her. The dog abruptly jumped up even from light touches. Then Mann decided to try to gently blow on her face, and it worked.
"People ask me how I wake up my deaf and blind pup without scaring her," Mann captioned a clip of himself approaching a sleeping Plum. "I slightly blow on her. She still gets startled until she feels me. Then she wants all the love."
Across Instagram and TikTok, the comments is full of support for Plum — with many emotional responses and even a reeaction from celebrities.
"Not being dramatic, but I would die for that dog," one commenter wrote.
"Why am I crying," the YouTube star and makeup guru Manny Mua commented on the video.
According to some reports, every tenth inhabitant of the planet is color blind. Studies show that color blindness depends on several factors: heredity, gender, age, place of residence. Moreover, such an anomaly may have been the norm for our distant ancestors.
Facts you didn't know about color blindness
Color blindness, which is a deregulation of the visual functions of a person, is expressed in a reduced ability or complete inability to see and/or distinguish colors. Several types of color blindness depend on which visual pigments in the human retina are absent or reduced.
The main cause of color blindness is that the functions of light-sensitive receptors (cones) in the central part of the retina of the human eye are impaired. Each of the 3 types of cones (nerve cells) has its type of photosensitive pigment with a specific absorption spectrum.
Facts about the color anomaly
1. Color blindness is a fairly common visual impairment characterized by a hereditary inability of the eye to perceive one or more primary colors and is caused by an X chromosome defect.
2. As doctors have established, color perception can also be disturbed due to eye or nervous diseases, or after a traumatic brain injury, severe flu, stroke, or heart attack.
3. Sometimes the cause of color blindness can be the aging process.
4. For example, in his old age, the artist Ilya Repin tried to remake his painting "Ivan the Terrible and his son Ivan." However, colleagues found that due to a violation of color perception, the painter significantly distorted the color palette of the picture and the work had to be interrupted. To see the world around us in all colors, people are prevented by the improper functioning of special light-sensitive receptors - cones located on the retina.
5. The different pigments contained in the cones make it possible to capture three color spectrums: red with a wavelength of 552-557 nanometers, green with a wavelength of 530 nanometers, and blue with a wavelength of 426 nanometers.
6. It is noteworthy that men suffer from color blindness 20 times more often than women, but it is the latter who predominantly betray the disease by inheritance.
7. Scientists say that genes are to blame for everything. Statistics speak of approximately 8% of men and 0.4% of women who have a similar visual defect.
Facts about color distinguish
8. There is a misconception that color-blind people do not distinguish colors at all. But statistics show that only 0.1% of people see the world in black and white.
9. Typically, colorblind people may not be able to distinguish any one color.
10. John Dalton, after whom the disease is named, did not perceive the color red. Moreover, most often in people suffering from color blindness, it is not the loss of any color from the visible spectrum, but its weakened perception.
11. Science identifies three-color anomalies: Protanopia - deterioration in the perception of red. People suffering from this pathology may confuse red with brown, dark gray, black, sometimes green.
12. Deuteranopia - difficulty with the perception of green. There is a mixture of green with a light orange tint and light green with red.
13. Tritanopia - problems with the perception of purple and blue colors. In this case, all shades of blue appear red or green. Much less often there is complete blindness to green or red.
Advantages of color blindness
14. Since 1940, the fact that color-blind soldiers are better than their healthy colleagues at detecting camouflage among the foliage has been widely discussed in military and scientific circles.
15. For a long time this issue was not taken seriously. And relatively recently, British researchers have confirmed that people who have difficulty distinguishing between red and green colors have developed a compensation mechanism, thanks to which they can distinguish many other shades that are inaccessible to the perception of other people.
16. In the course of the research, British scientists conducted an experiment in which a lattice of vertically arranged rectangles and a small target was displayed on the monitor, where the rectangles were arranged horizontally.
17. Participants in the experiment, some with normal color vision and the other with dichromic vision (the inability to distinguish between red and green colors) were asked to press one of four buttons to indicate in which sector of the grid the target appeared.
18. In the first part of the experiment, the rectangles were the same color and the participants had little or no difficulty in detecting the target.
19. But when the rectangles were randomly dyed red and green in the next part of the experiment, the normal-sighted subjects performed extremely poorly, while the dichromates still had no problem detecting the target.
20. According to scientists, the excellent result of color-blind people was because color, unlike other participants in the experiment, did not distract their attention.
Facts that prove that colors are an illusion
21. Based on modern ideas about color perception, color blindness may not be a deviation and a disease. So, physicists say that there are no colors in the world around us.
22. Color is just an illusion created by the brain that does not exist in physical reality.
23. Erwin Schroeder, Nobel laureate in physics writes: “If you ask a physicist what is yellow in his understanding, he will answer you that these are transverse electromagnetic waves, the length of which is approximately equal to 590 nanometers, and when wave vibrations enter the retina of a healthy eye a person has a sensation of yellow color.
Color blindness as a factor in the evolution
24. Canadian psychiatrist Richard Boeck, who spent many years studying ancient texts, suggests that our distant ancestors saw the world around us in black and white.
25. In the process of evolution, according to Bökk, the sensation of light split into yellow and blue, and after some time yellow split into red and green.
26. Today, most primates are dichromic. Only a few species, including humans, are trichromic.
27. Several researchers claim that this quality has been acquired and associate it with the need to look for food in the daytime. It was a color vision that helped prehistoric people find bright fruits.
Restrictions for people with color blindness
28. Sometimes you can find the opinion that people suffering from color blindness are not allowed to drive vehicles.
29. This is not entirely true. Category A and B driver's licenses are issued to colorblind people, but they will be marked "Without the right to work for hire."
30. However, there are professions where color perception is of fundamental importance - pilots, sailors, chemists, some medical specialties.
31. There the way is closed for colorblind people.
32. Due to color blindness, the famous singer George Michael, who had dreamed of becoming a pilot since childhood, was “rejected”.
33. Oddly enough, color blindness is not a hindrance in the work of a painter, where, at first glance, full-fledged color perception is indispensable.
34. But Charles Merion and Vrubel were able to adapt to the color anomaly of vision and realize their artistic talent in their way.
Color blindness and geographical factor
35. Modern research shows that people suffering from color blindness are unevenly distributed on our planet.
36. A large percentage of color-blind people live in the Czech Republic and Slovenia, while on the Fiji Islands this disease is completely absent.
37. Science still finds it difficult to name the cause of the geographical selectivity of color blindness.
38. However, British scientists managed to trace a curious pattern.
39. Color blindness appeared to be more prevalent in the urbanized south-eastern part of the UK, which was repeatedly attacked from outside.
40. In the north and west of the country with a predominantly rural way of life, where the population came from the British primitive tribes, there are much fewer color blind people. However, it is premature to argue that color blindness develops as a reaction to danger.
41. In Romania and Turkey, people with color blindness are not issued driver's licenses.
42. But in the Russian Federation, color blind people with dichromacy have the right to get a driver's license, but only categories A and B (without the right to work for hire), this opportunity has appeared since 2014 after the Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation of December 29, " On the lists of medical contraindications, medical indications and medical restrictions to driving a vehicle. Only the issuance of a driver's license to people suffering from achromatopsia (code H53.51 according to the International Classification of Diseases ICD-10) is prohibited in the Russian Federation.
43. The main disadvantage of people suffering from color blindness is safety, due to the limitation in the perception of colors, they cannot correctly recognize traffic lights and road signs.
44. There are restrictions in choosing a profession where color perception is of fundamental importance: pilots, sailors, chemists, some medical specialties.
45. Medical articles claim that every 10th man on earth is color blind. A large percentage of color blind people live in the Czech Republic and Slovenia, while there are none at all on the Fiji Islands.
46. According to 2012 data, about 4 million people in Russia suffer from color blindness.
47. The English scientist John Dalton did not know until the age of 26 that he had visual impairments and did not distinguish between red and green colors. Having learned about this, he, like a true scientist, described the symptoms of this disease, which as a result received his name and is now called color blindness.
48. This feature of vision was named in honor of John Dalton, who learned about his color blindness only at the age of 26 (in passing he learned that his “gray” jacket was burgundy).
49. There are practically no color blind people among the Brazilian Indians.
50. Color blindness is not a disease. In people with color blindness, vision is not disturbed, they see objects perfectly, but perceive their colors somewhat differently. Most colorblind people are unaware of their problems.

The "blind climber", real name Jesse Dufton, 34, is considered a natural phenomenon. He was diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa 10 years ago and lost his sight. But that doesn't stop him from pursuing his dream.
Jesse Dufton, from Loughborough, Great Britain, loves the mountain and says that climbing has helped him to find the love of his life and find a purpose after he lost his sight for good. The 34-year-old Briton said that in high school he did not see on the blackboard and wore glasses with very thick lenses. He managed to enter the Faculty of Chemistry at the University of Bath, but by the end of his studies he was completely blind.
"I don't think I would dare climb many of the peaks I would have been if I had seen. When you see the abyss below you, fear seizes you, it's much easier for me because I don't see the danger ", explained for The Sun" The Blind Climber ". After learning to read by touch and his mother taking a dog to guide him, Jesse began climbing and climbed a difficult cliff in Fontainbleau, France. The performance gave him courage and he joined the mountain rescue team.
In 2018, he participated in the World Climbing Championships in Austria and ranked in the top five. Recently, Jesse and his wife, Molly, have accomplished the impossible: they have climbed the most difficult rock in Britain and perhaps in the world: The Old Man in Hoy. The performance took place just a few months after climbing the summit of the French Alps in the middle of winter.
Jesse regrets that he can't admire the view from the top of the mountain, but he listens carefully to the description of the landscape and "sees the wonder through Molly's wife's eyes." In 2017, Jesse took part in an expedition to Greenland and said that the cold there made him feel the danger of the mission. Although the glacier on which he perched did not have a high level of difficulty, his frozen hands affected his senses and he could no longer anticipate "steps on the rock." But "he survived the mission and now wants to conquer the American mountains."
