Drugs, Tumblr, and Cbs: Researchers fully 'delete' HIV from human cells for the first time BY STEVE DENT @STEVETDENT JUL 22ND 2014 6:28AM So far, HIV has eluded a cure because it installs its genome into human DNA so insidiously that it's impossible for our immune system to clear it out. While current treatments are effective, a lifetime of toxic drugs are required to prevent its recurrence. But researchers from Temple University may have figured out a way to permanently excise it using a highly-engineered HIV "editor." Here's how it works: the team analyzed a part of our immune system that fights infection and built a "guide RNA" strand consisting of 20 nucleotides (RNA building blocks). Those strands were then injected into cells typically infected with HIV, like T-cells. There, they targeted the end parts of the virus's gene and snipped out all 9,709 nucleotides that made up its genome. Since the guide RNA strand contained no human DNA sequences, it left the host cell intact- but free from HIV lanque-hates-terfs: allthingshyper: gehayi: hiddlesbatchlove: forever-falling-forward: platredeparis: bnycolew: mannysiege: Progress What Imma just let this sit here MOTHA FUCKIN SCIENCE sources: Engagdget DailyTech CBS They turned RNA into an anti-virus program. That is amazing. Let me restate this in case it didn’t sink in the first time Researchers physically DELETED ALL TRACES of the HIV virus from a human cell. ALL OF IT. IF YOU ARE NOT EXCITED ABOUT THAT I DON’T THINK YOU KNOW WHAT HIV IS YEAAAAAAHHHHH!

Dude, Movies, and Nasty: white dude in this horror movie translates old arabic text somehow it rhymes perfectly in english Now I really wanna see a horrible faltering translation from one of these movies, like "Whomsoever enters this room, they shall.. well, this word is like.. literally it means unbecome, but it was used as a euphemism for death, pooping, and-wait, when was this carved? was it 15th century? Cuz it was a euphemism for sex too in the 15th century. This is either a cursed crypt, a bathroom, or a royal bedroom. Who wants to roll the dice?" You guys, I've gotta be honest, okay? This thing's written in some kind of weird localized dialect, and I've only ever studied the standard form of the language. I mean, this part right here..I can't even tell if it's some kind of error, or an obscure slang phrase whatever it is, I have no idea what the fuck it means." this is written in ancient sumerian. it's about... uh. well that word is.. uh. okay this is either a poem about farming, or straight-up a nasty sex guide. it might be both. i want a shower. okay see the thing is in one dialect this word is the name of a terrifying Demon but in a completely different language from the same area that has the same writing system and gave a lot of loan words to the first, it means horse and the context is really not helping" "You know what? This thing is bound in human skin and the walls are bleeding let's just leave. The sacred texts said that there’d be chickens here, but all I can see are ducks

You may “believe” that capitalism should be destroyed, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t the most successful economic model in human history, and has to led to the most successful civil societies in history. You may “believe” that international communism is “necessary”, but that such a system can’t compete with capitalism is historically evident, that it doesn’t work is well established, and that any citizen with even a half way decent life would reject any proposed decline in their standard of living, through violence, is obvious. I won’t fault you for holding these misguided beliefs as much as you fault me for my correct ones. What the fuck is going on in this post Shhh, I wanna learn more about this capitalism discourse
