 You know that moment right as the sun sets, or as it rises, and the top rays of the sun flash across the horizon, marking the magical moments in a period of the day when anything can happen? This is the inspiration for the new Beacon Collection from

A collection of four new styles of frames, that encompass the spirit of dusk ’til dawn, when anything can happen, these glasses are the perfect companions for late night dates to rooftop sunrises and everything in between. Unexpected, as well as revealing, the Beacon Collection celebrates all that is great about the mysterious, the spontaneous and the unknown. The Warby Parker Beacon Collection is now available.

The Earthman Jack Space Saga is a series of seven planned novels following the adventures of Jack Finnegan, and his journey from an unknown teenage slacker to one of the greatest heroes the universe has ever seen.

space-saga2Jack’s saga spans many years, multiple planets, a couple of dimensions, and more cheesy one-liners than you can count.  As the story progresses, you’ll see Jack’s journey from the small-town underachiever he started out as on Earth, to a courageous hero who saves the galaxy from utter annihilation.  Along the way, Jack is helped out by an assortment of odd-ball allies, and meets some truly frightening and formidable villains as well.
Oh yeah, there’s also an epic love story.  (You know, if you’re into that sort of thing.)
There will be lots of autonomous robots, ruthless cyborg bounty hunters, magical superheroes, devious politicians, and interesting aliens that cross Jack’s path.  There will also be epic battles (both in space and on the ground), universe-shattering events, personal tragedies and triumphs, strange science, and fascinating mysteries that will unfold, all with Jack at their center.
If you’re a fan of adventure, science fiction, fantasy, superheroes, true love, magic, and awesomeness, then you’ll definitely want to experience The Earthman Jack Space Saga for yourself!

Earthman Jack vs. The Ghost Planet (The Space Saga #1)

Jack Finnegan is living the life of a typical 15 year old teenager.  He hates going to school, shucks his homework in favor of playing video games, and is infatuated with the prettiest girl in town – Anna Shepherd.  The only problem is that her father is also Jack’s overly-strict Homeroom teacher, and he doesn’t seem to like Jack very much – as evidenced by the sheer volume of detention Jack receives from him. However, all that changes when an army of evil aliens suddenly invade Earth, and Jack discovers the girl of his dreams, his homeroom teacher, and his physics professor are all actually visitors from a galaxy-spanning Empire, who have come to Earth searching for a powerful Ancient artifact that might be the key to defeating their ruthless enemy.

What you should consider when choosing sunglasses for your  child

  • Wrap-around frames to protect from peripheral light
  • A comfortable fit – not too tight , not too loose
  • Transparent enough to see your child’s eyes
  • Tested to contain no lead, bisphenol A or phthalates
  • Shatterproof and impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses

Something’s you don’t know about harmful UV radiation and protecting your child’s eyes
Sunlight Can Permanently Damage Your Child’s Eyes
Everyone loves the sun. And everyone knows the sun can damage skin- but you probably don’t know that the sun can cause permanent and irreparable damage to your child’s eyes

Sunglasses are not Accessories- they are essential gear
Sunglasses should be as important as a bike helmet, would you let your child ride a bike without a helmet, right? Don’t let them play outside without protective sunglasses, Period!

Sun Damage is Permanent and Cumulative
Eye lenses cannot repair themselves. once they’re damaged, they’re damaged forever.
and over time the harm done is cumulative. This can lead to serious eye disease and even blindness

Eye Disorders Caused By Sun Damage

  • Cataracts
  • Skin cancer around the eyes
  • Photokeratitis- sunburn of the cornea
  • Pterygia-abnormal tissue grown on the whites of the eyes
  • Age-related macular degeneration
