17-Year-Old Inventor’s Gel Stops Bleeding Instantly And Could Be Available To Humans Soon (IMAGES/)

A breakthrough medical advancement that first gained media attention last year is going viral again thanks to a Facebook posting by Tech Insider. The finding, which could change everything about how we treat wounds, was created by a 17-year-old.

Inflaming Matters

And then, there were two. This liver cancer cell undergoing division into two daughter cells will, seven times out of ten, kill the human host within five years depending on how early doctors can get to work on them. Rising obesity and swilling alcohol, as well as contagious viruses like hepatitis, could contribute to more deaths. Four thousand new patients are diagnosed with liver cancer each year in the UK – men, in two-thirds of the cases – making the disease ten times rarer than breast or bowel cancer, but the third biggest killer. In a recent breakthrough, however, scientists succeeded in halting liver cancer-cell multiplication in mice by disabling a key biochemical switch, the LTβ receptor. This sits inside the membranes of liver cells and boosts the immune system when it detects undesirable bodies, leading to inflammation that only appears to make matters worse for tissue affected by cancer.

I think I just made a breakthrough

Ok so I was watching Half Blood Prince and I was wondering about snape’s spell Sectumsempra and he probably would have had to try it out on someone to know it worked right?

My guess is he caught James by surprise when he lost his cool, and got scared so he left him in the bathroom (kind of like Harry and Draco’s fight)

I think Lily might have been waiting for James outside and got suspicious when she saw SNAPE leaving with a ghost white look on his face

I think she found him in a pool of his own blood, shocked and horrified she asked him who did this to him. Before he went unconscious he breathed out snape.

When James was in the hospital she sought out Severus and confronted him in front of everybody, he in turn called her a mud blood to hide his fear and guilt.

Sound familiar?

The reason they stopped being friends wasn’t because he called her a mud blood

Do you think Lily Evens, (being the bad ass bitch she is) would swear never to talk to someone again because he called her a name?

No the reason she refused to talk to him was because he nearly killed James and Abused her to cover it up

And when he felt he hurt someone Lily cared about and wanted to protect

Imagine when he found Harry and Draco, Draco lying on the floor the way James had, except this time Lily’s son had hurt someone he had sworn to protect

And he realised that no matter how many years passed he’d never live down the regret and hatred of himself for betraying Lily.

On this day in music history: August 30, 1997 - “Mo Money Mo Problems” by The Notorious B.I.G. Featuring Puff Daddy & Mase hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 2 weeks, also peaking at #2 on the R&B singles chart on the same date. Written by Christopher Wallace, Sean Combs, Mason Betha, Steve Jordan, Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers, it is the second chart topping single for the Brooklyn, NY born rapper. Having made a major breakthrough with his classic debut album “Ready To Die” in 1994, with many of songs depicting his early years in the rap game, and his former life as a drug dealer, Biggie Smalls aka The Notorious B.I.G. will resolve not to travel over the same ground lyrically or musically on his sophomore effort.Wanting to show a progression from the first album, the material on the follow up “Life After Death” continues to tell the rappers’ story, but showing greater maturity and where he wishes to go in the future. The idea for “Mo Money, Mo Problems” comes out a statement Biggie makes during an interview, saying how his then new status as one of the biggest artists in hip hop had changed the attitudes of people around him. How money and fame don’t solve all of your problems, but instead bring a whole other set of them to deal with. The track for “Mo Money” produced by Stevie J. of The Hitmen production team samples Diana Ross’ 1980 hit “I’m Coming Out” and features R&B singer Kelly Price singing the hook. Puff Daddy and Mase will also contribute verses to the song, with Biggie bringing it all home. “Mo Money Mo Problems” is the second single issued after four months after B.I.G.’s death on July 15, 1997. It is supported by a slick and glossy video directed by Hype Williams, and features archival footage of the rapper along with newly filmed footage of Puffy and Mase. Entering the Hot 100 at #4 on August 2, 1997, it will leap to the top of the chart four weeks later, unseating Puff Daddy’s “I’ll Be Missing You” (after holding at #2 for three weeks), the Bad Boy founders’ posthumous tribute to the fallen rapper. “Mo Money” also receives a Grammy nomination in 1998 for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group, but loses to “I’ll Be Missing You”. “Mo Money Mo Problems” is certified Platinum in the US by the RIAA.

AMAZING breakthrough: just sending a giveaway admin a positive message on anon achieves everything that the "Positivity Confession Blog" is for without causing any kind of drama! Wow, science is amazing! (There are so many people deleting/leaving over this oh my god. Thank you for speaking your mind about all this, Tiny)

Weed out the weak. It sucks to see them go but the fragile community was/is ready to break anyway. If someone politely bringing up legitimate concerns hurts their feelings enough that they no longer wish to participate then I wish them the best of luck in future endeavors where people… might not be so nice! In fact, I get the feeling the way I handled the situation is a lot better than most people would while bringing up serious concerns! Politely! 

I tried to be the best behaved I could - and I do feel successful - because it’s a subject people may feel differently on. And they’re more than welcome to! As long as those SERIOUS CONCERNS are not taken lightly or dismissed altogether, that is. If the blog had been like, “yeah Tiny we see that you have concerns but we’re dedicated to making this the best we can and we’re willing to make accommodations if requested” or whatever I’d have been like… yeah okay!

But this is tumblr, and I don’t know what people who leave are thinking. Do they think they’re going to find a place where people are nicer? I mean that isn’t going to happen unless you’re in a toxic, self-congratulating echo chamber where nobody can do wrong. which there are plenty of on tumblr, but I mean like, they won’t be achieving personal growth or exposure to the facts that there’s always two sides to every story, that people might disagree with you and have valid reasons for doing so, and even things that seem positive might have horrible side effects. 

I had that anon earlier saying they liked my QR codes for NL. That made me feel great! It’s fairly motivating! If someone had sent that to a different blog, I would have not felt quite so good about it. Suppose it depends on the blog - someone who mentioned using it and an anon goes “yeah I love them!” I’d be like hell yeah! but to just some random blog only gathering comments for whatever reason? I’d be like… uh… yeah they couldn’t even say it to me, they’re just blowing hot smoke. If there’s a lesson to be learned, you can say nice things to people themselves! They love it! Even if they don’t post it, trust me, they’re more than happy to receive it! I know I make fun of a lot of people, but if you’re just being nice then what would I possibly make fun of you for? I don’t pick on people for no reason.

‘  You swirled around the giant round room.

  Y/N: I can’t believe we finally finished her. We should call her ‘Cerebro’.

  Your fingertips stroked the walls of it and Hank chuckled.

  Hank: What, like brain in Spanish?

  Y/N: Exactly like brain in Spanish.

  You looked at Hank and his smile vanished, he looked at you like he was awestruck.

  Y/N: What? What’s wrong?

  Hank: Nothing… No everything’s alright.

  A light blush dusted his cheeks and he looked down at his feet, stealing glances at you now and then. Every scientist has a point in their life that changes their look on science. But this moment pinpointed Hank’s look on you, and his life. A romantic breakthrough.          ‘

Generation Stress

Millennials (18-33 year olds) and Generation X (34-46 year olds) are now called Generation Stress. That’s because for the last three years, the American Psychological Association’s research on stress has found Millennials to be the most stressed demographic in America, with Generation X coming in a close second.

Both generations report almost twice the level of stress that’s considered safe from serious health risk. Fifty-two percent of Millennials and 45 percent of Gen Xers say their stress has continued to increase over the last five years. Over 40 percent of both generations say they’re having problems with anxiety, anger, irritability, and depression, and over 70 percent of Millennials say they are not getting enough sleep. This is not only holds serious ramifications for our younger generations, it also bodes poorly for companies in need of breakthrough innovators to maintain competitive edge. Stress blocks the brain function that generates creativity.

If you are a Boomer (48 to 66) or a Mature (67 and older), you’re probably not fairing much better. The APA found that Boomers and Matures stress levels were higher than they consider healthy.

The good news in all this bad news is that there is a lot we can do using very simple approaches to turn this picture around, and in a few short weeks. If we have a problem with stress, it’s because genetics and past traumas have wired our brain to over-react to stressors and problems. We can change the way our brain is wired by making a specific shift in attitude.

What is discouraging is the finding that 83 percent of Americans are doing little of nothing to alleviate their stress. It makes no sense when you consider the huge impact of chronic stress on mind, body, and soul.  Chronic stress means the stress response system is turned on nearly full time, flooding the brain with toxic hormones that are quite damaging.

Obviously, stress isn’t something you should someday do something about.  You need to attend to it today.

Reversing these problems is simpler than you might believe and change can happen quicker than you might now imagine. Here is an example of a simple, proven tool that goes a long way to frame a great day, instead allowing stress to take charge. It’s called Starting the Day in Quiet. This tool is an antidote to the frenetic, early morning rush out the door. It encourages you to set aside a few minutes first thing in the morning to consciously frame a dynamically positive and peaceful mindset to meet the day’s challenges.  Quiet, centered, and positive is not usually how people start their day, even though it can make a big difference. When I ask executives I coach how their mornings begin, most say they jump out of bed, gulp down cups of coffee, help feed and dress the kids, get dressed themselves, and then drive straight into the morning traffic jam. Starting the day in quiet avoids the downward spiral into stress by helping you consciously evoke a higher frame of mind to lead you into a new day. Here’s how it works.
  • Start your day by rising 10 minutes earlier, ahead of the morning rush.
  • Sit quietly in a place where you won’t be disturbed.
  • Close your eyes, tilt your head toward your heart, and follow your breathing. The idea is to feel each breath opening your heart and mind wider, empowering heart and mind to work in concert.
  • Feel appreciation for the gift of another day of life. It’s not guaranteed. Feel gratitude for another day with the people you love.
  • Set your intention to have a great day, filled with achievements. Equally, commit to a great state of mind to face the day’s ups and down with a dynamically positive and peaceful attitude.

It might be hard to believe that this simple, five minute step helps change the course of the day, but I teach this tool in high pressure organizations and people swear by it. In these trainings, people initially complain that resolving the stress in their life is “easier said than done.” But it only seems hard at the beginning.  The more you apply tools that help you make the choice to be peaceful and positive instead of stressed and depressed, the easier it becomes … and the easier life becomes. Greater calm leads to greater creativity and optimism, which enables you to face stressors and problems with confidence.

I present 20 simple but proven approaches in my book, The End of Stress, Four Steps to Rewire Your Brain. All of them are neuroplastic in nature, meaning that - with practice - they can rewire the brain to sustain a relatively stress-free life.  The work I do is grounded in neuroscience, but I also speak from experience.  A brain tumor taught me about the power that comes from making this shift. It helped me generate the mind-body connection to come through my ordeal without the disabilities the doctors had predicted. I wrote about it in another of my HuffPost articles this year (http://bit.ly/huffpost-storm-of-stress).  If a change of attitude can change the course of a serious illness, it can also change the course of a stressful life.

On this day in music history: August 30, 1986 - “Love Zone” by Billy Ocean hits #1 on the Billboard R&B singles chart for 1 week, also peaking at #10 on the Hot 100 on September 27, 1986. Written by Wayne Braithwaite, Barry J. Eastmond, and Billy Ocean, it is the third R&B chart topper for the Trinidad born/British raised singer and songwriter (birth name Leslie Sebastian Charles). The track will be written in the studio when Ocean is working with producer Barry J. Eastmond (Freddie Jackson) on the follow up to his breakthrough album “Suddenly”. Eastmond will come up the drum pattern and ask bassist Wayne Braithwaite (also co-writer of Billy Ocean’s “When The Going Gets Tough, The Tough Get Going” ) to play whatever he feels over it, coming up with the songs’ signature groove. Ocean, liking what he hears will write the lyrics and melody to complete the song. Issued as the follow up to the chart topping first single “There’ll Be Sad Songs (To Make You Cry)”, “Love Zone” will follow that single into the top ten on both the pop and R&B singles chart.

Pixels

最近睇了一套叫Pixels,中文名叫"屈機起格命"…
中文名真的有點爛…不過有Adam Richard Sandler的電影都蠻有趣的,
Adam出生於美國的猶太人家庭,是一名傑出的喜劇演員及電影製作人。
參與過很多大型電影及一些動畫的配音(Hotel Transylvania中的德古拉),
返回正題…Pixels雖然有點無里頭,但這也正是有趣之處,令用經典遊戲
角色化身成的外星人侵襲地球,從2D的8-Bit化成3D的8-Bit,當外星人捉
走地球人時會數碼點陣化後傳送至太空船,這有點像數碼暴龍,哈哈~
對於某一年齡層看到如此經典的角色應該很懷念兒時的回憶,雖然後生的
一輩未必認識當中太多的角色,但電影內也有交代了一些經典遊戲背景及
玩法,所以這套輕鬆又有趣的電影不論是大人定細路都值得去睇睇呢。

講起8-Bit點陣圖,我就想起以前兒時玩過的”他媽個池”同”數碼暴龍“了…

HIV infection cured in infant through very early treatment

A baby girl in Mississippi who was born with HIV has been cured after very early treatment with standard drug therapy, U.S. researchers reported on Sunday, in a potentially ground-breaking case that could offer insights on how to eradicate HIV infection in its youngest victims.

The child’s story is the first account of an infant achieving a so-called functional cure, a rare event in which a person achieves remission without the need for drugs and standard blood tests show no signs that the virus is making copies of itself.
