Well. At least it’s intelligent graffiti. Haha. #organic #orgo #chem #chemistry #graffiti #vandalism
Hey John, maybe you should let go of your ego for a second and realize that the people who bought your stuff probably weren’t at fucking Survivor Series. So it wasn’t the people booing you. /facepalm
This site crashed because ‘I fucking love science’ fb posted it earlier. Its back up and running. I cant believe something like this is available at the click of your finger. Wow. Seriously check this out and go learn something!!! I went right for, A Brief Intro to Particle Physics :)
Finally, I’ve been waiting for this to be up for days. Haven’t had a proper look yet but this seems pretty awesome.
Finals are right around the corner. Have some calming manatee to make everything better. <3I want frame these, and hang them in my home.
I have one Calming Manatee as my laptop wallpaper and it takes all my effort to not make one my work wallpaper.
I have several Calming Manatees pinned up in my room.
I see it. I definitely see that as a legitimate cause of my hypersomnia. I decided to look it up today because, again, I woke up at 9:30 (I tried to at 8:30 but I kept pressing snooze) then went back to my room and slept on the floor until 11:00, constantly trying to wake myself up before then. Honestly, I probably would have kept sleeping if I didn’t actually have to wake up.
It’s a real problem. Because I fall asleep at work. Obviously I fall asleep in philosophy… Every day… But I also end up being too sleepy to do much, if any, homework. Even though most homework isn’t “required” in college (so far), I still need to do it, you know? It worries me.
I’m sure part of this is definitely attributed to me forgetting to take medication lately. It’s a legit cause. But… I mean, I just have to remember. Medication is annoying. Haha. But… I just need to get a good sleep schedule together, I suppose.
Sigh. I sure hope that’s all it is.
I take antidepressants. Some days are better than others but I’ve noticed taking my med at the same time every day does help. I also switched to listening to more cheerful music. Avoid things that trigger sadness or insecurity. I hope you feel better
Yeah. I think the whole timing thing would help. Next school year my boyfriend won’t be as easily accessible (his dorm will no longer be walking distance and he’ll be student teaching) so that will probably be a huge help to me, as much as it will still kinda suck. I don’t really listen to music like that, but like I said, my depression is more a lack of emotions and motivation, not extreme sadness. I don’t doubt you, though. I’m sure it’s best to avoid those things regardless. Thanks for the advice.
Vitamin B complex is good for energy, as well as getting some nice soft natural sunlight on skin…. Im sure you already know this though
A reminder is never bad! :) I have been neglecting to take my multivitamins (which are special a “energy boosting” kind). I’ve been avoiding them because they have iron, zinc, and copper in them… Too much of those metals has shown, in new researcher, to cause plaques in the brain that lead to Alzheimer’s. So. Yeah. Haha.

When a tumor grows beyond a certain size, it begins to shed cells, not unlike particles flaking off dry skin. Exactly when or why this happens in humans isn’t known, but these cells, called “circulating tumor cells” or CTCs play a major role in the spread of cancer to other parts of the body, the process more formally known as metastasis.
Scientists believe CTCs could be a new and invaluable source of information in the diagnosis and prognosis of cancer, but a big part of the current challenge is finding enough them: For every million or so circulating blood cells, there may be only a few CTCs. It’s the proverbial search for a needle in a haystack, only the needle is infinitesimally smaller and moving inside the human body. CTCs are also not generally inclined to announce their presence – at least not until they’ve lodged somewhere else (a distant organ, for example) to colonize and grow a new tumor.
The existing gold standard for isolating and identifying CTCs is an assay in which blood samples are exposed to magnetic beads coated with an antibody that binds to specific proteins on the surface of cancer cells. The capturing efficacy of this method ranges between 60 and 90 percent, but it also takes time and is prone to contamination from leukocytes – white blood cells that may also stick to the beads.
Recently, researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and Moores Cancer Center described a new, alternative filtering technique that employs microbubbles. Writing in the March issue of PLOS One, principal investigator Dmitri Simberg, PhD, assistant project scientist, and colleagues said each microbubble is about half the diameter of a blood cell, filled with perfluorocarbon gas (for buoyancy and stability) and coated with an antibody. Exposed to a blood sample, the bubbles quickly attach themselves to any CTC encountered and puls them into a greater concentration (think soda bubbles rising to the top of a glass).
In tests using blood samples from mice and humans, Simberg said the microbubble assay worked better and faster than existing approaches, reducing the risk of contamination or sample degradation.
Though more research is required, he noted that the microbubble method may represent “the emerging field of blood biopsies, in which highly pure CTCs could be used as a source of tissue for personalized molecular diagnostics.”
I just wonder how I’d look with professional makeup haha.
have you been able to get a lot of sunlight lately? I’m from Maine, so a BIG thing around here (especially after the winter) are vitamin D levels and the trouble with Seasonal Affective Disorder. Try some fresh air, & sunlight do homework outside :)
I’d probably be more inclined to do homework outside if it weren’t so windy here. :P But I think SAD is a possibility. I mean, my home
town village is a cloudy place, and SAD is so bad there that it’s ranked as the 2nd most depressing places to live. I go to college in Syracuse, and it’s also very cloudy here. Maybe it’s somehow more cloudy? I don’t know haha. I’m willing to attribute a decent amount to clinical depression which hasn’t been treated recently due to me forgetting my meds.
Not the crying buckets kind. But the dragging, sleepy, lack-of-emotions kind. Perhaps it has to do with me forgetting to take my morning medications lately. I kept forgetting so I thought I’d see what happens if I just stop. Maybe that’s the signal to not do that.
I just feel like sleeping. I don’t want to. Actually, the thought of sleeping my life away starts to make me teary. I don’t wanna stay like this.
But now that I think of it… I don’t think medication has ever really fixed it all 100%. Maybe it’s the wrong kind. Maybe there’s something else. Who knows.
I did get some work done today. But now I feel too dragged down to power on for another two hours.
I just hope this semester ends alright. I honestly won’t be mad if I don’t get all As. Because if I just do extremely well in my future classes (that are harder) it compensates.
Idk. I just need to go to bed.
EDs are much more complicated than just not getting enough calories.
- If a sick person doesn’t eat enough because they don’t feel good enough to eat… Does he/she have an ED?
- If a really busy person doesn’t eat enough because they’re too consumed with their work… Does he/she have an ED?
- If someone is new to working out and ends up not eating enough (unintentionally) to compensate for their fitness, does he/she have an ED?
It just seems like some people are really quick to point fingers and tell people they have EDs nowadays. Even though they don’t have any legitimate evidence of any symptoms. Not eating enough isn’t an uncommon thing. Some people forget to eat breakfast in the morning because they’re rushing, for example. An example of undereating that’s common and normal. Unless it’s bothering your psyche (as in, you feel bad about yourself), then it’s probably not something to worry about that much. Yes, you should do what you can to eat enough, but if you’re not seriously putting your health in jeopardy, such as with an ED, there’s not much to be concerned about. But I do encourage you to evaluate your eating habits from time to time. I wrote this post because I did just that and a couple people pointed the ED finger at me. Just don’t let these non-professional people on the internet convince you that you have an ED if you know you’re healthy and have no problems with your body and self-esteem. After all… What gives those people the right to tell you what you have or don’t have? They’re not professionals.
