That is not an eye test. It is the name of the volcano erupting in Iceland. How do you pronounce that anyway? Phonetically, try this: "EY-yah-fyah-lah-YOH-kuul, with "ey" pronounced like the "ey" in "they". Personally, my tongue has a problem with this name. I am not sure I will ever master it.

The volcano will potentially affect the weather in the northern hemisphere. In the last few days, the ash cover has managed to reach over more eastern parts of Europe such as Amsterdam in addition to the British Isles. Airports continue to close and reopen as the ash threat to aviation comes and goes.
