Anybody notice how black men are so disgusted and turned off by black women they deem fake (weave, plastic surgery etc) but worship the likes of Kylie Jenner or Kim Kardashian or non-black IG models?

It’s not just women, you’d be amazed at how many men in this industry have gone down that road. I just don’t get it. You have to embrace getting older. Life is precious, and when you’ve lost a lot of people, you realize each day is a gift.

Inkjet inks made of silk could yield smart bandages, bacteria-sensing gloves and more

“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” Silk inks containing enzymes, antibiotics, antibodies, nanoparticles and growth factors could turn inkjet printing into a new, more effective tool for therapeutics, regenerative medicine and biosensing.

By using purified silk protein, or fibroin, which offers intrinsic strength and protective properties, the the research team created and tested a “custom library” of inkjet-printable, functional silk inks doped with a variety of components:

  • Bacterial-sensing polydiacetylenes (PDAs) printed on surgical gloves; the word “contaminated” printed on the glove changed from blue to red after exposure to E. coli
  • Proteins that stimulate bone growth (BMP-2) printed on a plastic dish to test topographical control of directed tissue growth
  • Sodium ampicillin printed on a bacterial culture to test the effectiveness of a topographical distribution of the antibiotic
  • Gold nanoparticles printed on paper, for possible application in photonics and biology (e.g., color engineering, surface plasmon resonance based sensing and bio-imaging)
  • Enzymes printed on paper to test the ability of the ink to entrain small functional biomolecules

The researchers envision more work on the bio-sensing gloves, which could selectively react to different pathological agents. The ability to print antibiotics in topographical patterns could address the need for “smart” bandages, where therapeutics are incorporated and delivered to match a complex injury.

Tatiana is on the list of “The 11 Most Unstoppable LGBT Women on TV”

AfterEllen made a list of the 11 female LGBT representative characters on TV and of course Tatiana Maslany took her rightful place on the list as well!

“I know Tatiana herself isn’t a fictional character, but she plays so many characters that are strong and fierce fighters and survivors, and does it while staying humble, sweet, and smiley, I think she qualifies. The Leda clones on Orphan Black have had a lot thrown at them in a short amount of time. At any point, they could give up—succumb to whatever the DYAD wanted, run away, get plastic surgery—but they don’t. They stay and they fight. Even Alison, who has successfully albeit probably temporarily removed herself from the DYAD drama, doesn’t back down when faced with a bad rap from her bout with addiction, doesn’t let her idiot husband run the show, and will literally kill to protect her family. She will be queen of the suburbs, no matter what. Sarah still fights for answers, for Helena, for Kira, despite getting beaten down, literally and metaphorically, time and time again. Girlfriend always has a gun pressed to her head. Helena is fighting against her very nature to be less of a ruthless assassin and more of a food processor to be there for her sestras; and currently, is trying to find the balance of humanity and animal to escape imprisonment. Cosima still fights for a cure, for science, for her sisters, for love.”

I’m obsessed with the new hd foundation by makeup forever. It’s a lot like the immaculate foundation from hourglass, but less powdery.

It lasts longer than the original MUFE hd formula, and doesn’t plasticize as quickly - it’s actually still somewhat blendable a few minutes after application. After hourglass and cover fx, this is my fave foundation and the MUFE primers are equally as innovative.

Argentina indigenous chieftain leads fight to reclaim ancestral land

Félix Díaz stands before a line of colourful plastic tents on one of the broad strips of land running down the centre of the Avenida 9 de Julio – one of the busiest thoroughfares in the Argentinian capital.

“We have many gods,” he says. “The god of nature, the god of water, the god of air, but we no longer have the land we shared with them. They’ve taken our gods and now they’re taking what little is left of our land.”

Díaz, the chieftain of the Qom indigenous tribe, is leading the fight for the return of his people’s ancestral lands in the distant northern province of Formosa. Together with representatives of the Pilagá, Wichi and Nivaclé indigenous communities, the Qom activists have for the past five months camped out in central Buenos Aires to demand the return of their traditional territories. 

But his words are drowned out by the thunderous din of traffic – and his message has been actively ignored by government officials.

Ever wanted to fly your own Iron Man suit?  Well now you can (sort of) with Uncontrollable Robot Man, an extremely hard to control toy robot with thrusters for arms and legs.

Played in a kids toy room, your ‘simple’ objective is to fly around and knock over all the toy plastic soldiers.  This is FAR easier than it sounds, as the QWOP-like control scheme makes your little rocket powered robot ridiculously hard to fly (which is what makes the game so frustratingly fun).  After a few minutes you’ll figure out a way to stop sliding along the ground and bashing into walls, but you’ll never become one with this flying machine.  There are plenty of objects to bash into and knock over, but you can be guaranteed that if you aim for anything specifically, you’ll miss it by a mile.

Tony Stark makes this look easy - you’re going to make it look like a monkey has stolen his suit!
