Camp Camp Bad Ending Kool Aid AU part one The Beginning

Bam! David carelessly threw the door open, Max swiftly rotated his head from the boring window and notices David standing in the front of the door. Max  shifted his view up and down of David. David was an absolute wreak from the pointy floof of his red hair to his brown boots covered in icky sticky mud.

While he staggered to his feet attempting to remain in balance,David didn’t seem to notice that Max was there at all. David just stared blankly at the wall as if it seemed interesting to him all of a sudden like a mindless zombie.

Rolling his eyes, Max strolled over in front of David and made a noise with his fingers,Snap, hoping that caught David’s attention but apparently it didn’t. Max’s eyes roamed over the furnished room to see what he could make a ruckus with then Max’s eyes widen with a malicious smirk “Ah ha! bingo.”

Slowly walking with one stomp at a time, Max managed to get over to the kitchen.Being over in the kitchen, Max was stepping on the floorboards to get close to the counter.Which the floorboards were loose enough to made squeaking sounds.Surprisingly, David didn’t budge an inch from his spot.

Which was weird considering he would usually inform Max to always be cautious about the floorboards breaking when Max was in the kitchen.David didn’t say anything well he did arrived late and tracked mud inside the mini house, which was annoying for Max considering when David was with the new campers, Max would sometimes clean the floor and there goes Max’s time wasted.

Grabbing the closest wooden chair, Max put his worn tight shoes on top of the wooden chair.Catching himself a bit unbalanced, Max shouts "Hey, hey, hey!” The chair was titling left then right then left.

Max yanks at the hard plates on top of the glistening counter hoping he wouldn’t descend with the trembling chair.

THUMP, David’s eyes were forcefully pulled aside from looking at the wall as he started to take in the view around the room, ‘when did I get here?’ David pondered as a groan escaped Max’s mouth “ow.”

David realized he should know if Max was okay but he didn’t know Max was, David did hear shouting but he thought he was still at camp with the new campers.It shouldn’t matter as long as David knew where Max was, David inquired "Hey, Max can you tell me where you are and are you okay?”

Having to hear David’s voice from the living room, Max barked “it shouldn’t have taken me to fall to take your attention dumbass, I’m in the kitchen!”

David dashed as soon as he could inside the kitchen and saw Max on the floor with bits and pieces of shattered plates along with a wooden chair fallen over, David’s gaze soften “oh Max, you can tell me what happen later.”

Growing frustrated, Max glared at David and David was taken back with this glare ever since David adopted Max, Max would still be grumpy but David figured out Max’s emotions which was that certain grumpy faces meant that Max was glad or afraid but this glare meant that he was furious with David but Max would usually understand that David meant no harm so David was shocked.

Helping Max was always an opportunity that David could take later, David ignored the burning glare and helped Max to stand up then motioned Max to go to the living room. Max looked at David with narrow eyes and scowled but quickly left the kitchen to head for the living room.Sighing David seized the broom and swept the shards of the plates to the dustpan then placed the shards in the garbage bin.

After cleaning he needed to check if Max was bruised from the sharp shards of the plates.Even if Max broke the plates on purpose, David wasn’t furious or the type to discipline kids so Max wouldn’t even get punishment.

‘Max only knocked down a chair and plates it wasn’t much compared to other things he has done besides Max wouldn’t do anything without a good purpose maybe he shouldn’t have send him to the living room without asking Max what he was doing because it seemed that Max didn’t mean to make the mess’, David mumbles “I might have messed up.”

Turning the chair over was the last thing David had to do and it was complete now all he had to do was talk with Max about what had happen. David didn’t exactly remember getting inside the house or even being close to the house which made him puzzled on how he got there, the last thing he remembered was being at camp being dripping wet from the heavy pouring rain and leading the campers inside the cabin then he blinked and he was here at least Max was in the house and not somewhere else. 

Walking to the living room, David spotted Max sitting on the soft squishy couch and Max had his arm crossed over one on the other with the same old grumpy expression on his face.

Sitting next to Max,David was checking for any wounds on Max’s body,they both stayed silent for a while until Max sneered and hissed

“you didn’t even know what I was attempting to do.”

David flinched and looked back at Max in concern "First I had to clean the shards of the plates and now I’m here to listen.”

Then Max clenched his fists and was gnashing his teeth "Stop trying to act like a parent when you don’t care.”

Flabbergasted at Max saying that, David carefully spoke while looking Max straight in Max’s eyes in a serious tone "Why wouldn’t I care, Max?”

Moving his eyes to the side, Max responded “you send me here immediately assumed what I was attempting to do was horrible, all I did was break plates and you don’t even know what I was trying to do.”

Calmly David spoke softly in a understanding voice “Max, I’m sorry it isn’t like that, I just was focused on getting rid of the shards first so you wouldn’t get injured, I care for you so so much and I’m here to listen to what you have to say because you usually have valued reasons, so could you please tell me what happened?”

David didn’t understand why Max would bring this subject up again all abruptly but David knew what Max needed was to be reassure because even after adopting Max it wouldn’t surprise David if Max still has doubts about David wanting Max around.

Looking as if Max was considering to inform David or not, he finally replied “Fine then lets talk about what was that earlier at the door.”

Tilting his head slightly, David seemed to be an a daze about what Max told him “huh?”

Raising one of his eyebrow, Max spoke “don’t be dumb, David.”

Overall if David thought it was funny to joke about him not being in front of the door Max didn’t find it very hilarious.

Taking a glance at the door, David had a puzzle expression “No I really don’t understand what you mean by earlier at the door.”

Thinking that David was still joking around,Max humored him and bluntly responded ”Remember you arrived at the door and just stared at the wall completely ignoring me.“

Seeming to be shocked at hearing this, David requested “When did I arrived at the door?”

Groaning and grumbled “David you arrived at the door just a few minutes ago so I went into the trouble into snapping you out of it by stepping on the floorboards and standing on the chair to drag something.”

Already David was worried for Max when he said that and blurted out “So that is what you were doing but its dangerous if you do that don’t do it again, Max you’re going to get hurt.”

deliberately, Max mentioned ”Well you certainly thought staring at the wall was more important.“

Feeling slightly guilty David started "Max I didn’t mea-”  

Making a talking motion with his hand, Max ranted “yeah, yeah save your excuses for later.”

Quietly David whispered “I really thought I was at camp”

Taking a look back at David with serious eyes, Max grumbled “What do you mean you thought you were in camp, you were clearly here David.”

Seeing Max concerned made David try to leave the subject “I guess, I was out of my mind.”

Staring at David, Max asked “wait..David what do you mean by that?”

There was silence and Max looking horrified then changed back to his regular face, ‘David was only spacing out it was only that and nothing else’ Max reminded himself

Giving a little nudge to David, Max asked with concerned eyes “Hey, I’m not the only one that matters here idiot, are you okay?”

Snapping out of it, David responds"Yea..I need to make the new campers happy and it matters so much to me that I must of been spacing out, I’m sorry to concern you Max.“ David says with a sorrowful smile and

Max mumbled "Making me ask of you are is really cruel David and just don’t space out here because you don’t need to make me happy when I’m already….happy.”

Not believing his ears, David had a gigantic smile on his face “hmm what was that.”

Max mumbles even lower “I said I’m already…”

Smirking of joy, David asks again “I couldn’t quiet hear that max”

Max growled at David and yelled “FUCK OFF, you heard me!”

Really content, David cheered ”Maybe I did..I’m so glad you feel joy

David slowly brings Max closer and wraps his arms around Max

Then Max embraces David and whispers "You better improve,idiot.”

David gleams and hugs Max tighter then mumbles “I promise”.

Northwestern Medicine scientists and engineers have invented a range of bioactive “tissue papers” made of materials derived from organs that are thin and flexible enough to even fold into an origami bird. The new biomaterials can potentially be used to support natural hormone production in young cancer patients and aid wound healing.

Jim Letherer on the way from Selma to Montgomery, 1965

Despite losing his right leg to cancer at age 10, Jim Letherer walked on crutches the entire 54 miles of the 1965 Selma to Montgomery march for voting rights. 

In 1966, Letherer walked with Martin Luther King, Jr. in James Meredith’s Mississippi March Against Fear, as well as participating in the 1984 March to Aid Cancer Research and the 1985 20-year reunion March on Selma.

All T-cell effector functions involve the interaction of an armed effector T cell with a target cell displaying specific antigen. The effector proteins released by these T cells are focused on the appropriate target cell by mechanisms that are activated by recognition of antigen on the target cell. The focusing mechanism is common to all types of effector T cells, whereas their effector actions depend on the array of membrane and secreted proteins they express or release upon receptor ligation. The different types of effector T cell are specialized to deal with different types of pathogen, and the effector molecules they are programmed to produce cause distinct and appropriate effects on the target cell.


Matures in Bone marrow. B cells form plasma cells and memory cells when exposed to antigen. plasma cells will secrete the antibody and memory cells stick around in case the same antigen attacks in the future


Matures in the Thymus. Consists of cytotoxic T cells that recognize antigen on infected cells, and signal for apoptosis and helper T cells that recognize antigen on antigen-presenting cells, and signal for activation of B cells, more T cells, and macrophages.

Both the humoral response and the cellular response are specific immune responses which eliminates (A). Choice (B) is the correct answer! The humoral response is directed against antigens that have not yet entered body cells, while the cellular response is directed against pathogens that have entered body cells. Choice © is incorrect, because both the humoral response and the cellular response result in the formation of memory cells. Choice (D) is false, since the humoral response involves the production of antibodies.

What do you think the draw is between Cancer and Scorpio? Is it just the water aspect or is there more? I'm a Scorpio sun with Cancer moon so I already vibe well with Cancers but I'm curious if there is more.

Aw, Cancer & Scorpio is my absolute favorite pairing in the zodiac and I love talking about it because that’s the relationship I’ve been in for nearly three years <3 I do think the fact that both signs are Water signs has a lot to do with their deep connection though, it’s a soul mate pairing, both are able to easily understand each other and mutual understanding is totally crucial in any type of relationship. I also think Scorpios may gravitate towards the femininity that Cancers exude; Scorpios feel most useful when they are protecting someone or something, and so they may become protective over their Cancer. Cancers want to protect Scorpios as well, they share many of these things in common, both have extremely similar desires. And since Scorpio can potentially be such a jealous sign, they don’t have to worry as much when they are with a Cancer, because the Cancer soul is loyal, and so is Scorpio. They both take love so seriously and they have beautiful, passionate, romantic ways of expressing their admiration for each other. Cancers also offer sentimental reassurance to Scorpios, Cancers are blessed with healing abilities, and Scorpios generally grow up to feel wounded. But with the aid of Cancer, they feel really secure and as though they finally have someone who can nurture them and build their confidence, especially emotionally. Cancers are so emotional and it sets an example for Scorpios - they open up more around Cancers because they also are aware that Cancers do not judge. Scorpios are weird, their personalities are typically shunned by society because of their taboo interests and their overall strange ways, but Cancers can relate to that so much, and I think that’s why they get along so well. I also know three Cancer & Scorpio pairings, and it’s lovely, there just seems to be an irresistible and mesmerizing bond between the two. One of my closest friends is a Scorpio girl too, and my favorite cousin is a Scorpio guy. Like, romantically, platonically, or family-wise, Cancers and Scorpios are the bees knees together.

A New And Needed Declaration of Independence

With the current atmosphere of hatred and violence, it’s hard to remember what this country once stood for. While the current government ignores and demurs the current actions of many hate groups and Nazis, the rest of us cannot. 236 years ago, a group of citizens got together and declared, “No more.” Now it is time for us, all of us, to do the same. 

In that spirit, I took the original Declaration of Independence and have since rewrote it into a more modern and pointed version. It is below the cut.

Tau, not amyloid-beta, triggers neuronal death process in Alzheimer's

New research points to tau, not amyloid-beta (Abeta) plaque, as the seminal event that spurs neuron death in disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease. The finding, which dramatically alters the prevailing theory of Alzheimer’s development, also explains why some people with plaque build-up in their brains don’t have dementia.

The study is published online today in the journal Molecular Neurodegeneration.

Neuronal death happens when tau, found inside neurons, fails to function. Tau’s role is to provide a structure — like a train track —inside brain neurons that allows the cells to clear accumulation of unwanted and toxic proteins.

“When tau is abnormal, these proteins, which include Abeta, accumulate inside the neurons,” explains the study’s senior investigator, Charbel E-H Moussa, MB, PhD, assistant professor of neuroscience at Georgetown University Medical Center. “The cells start to spit the proteins out, as best they can, into the extracellular space so that they cannot exert their toxic effects inside the cell. Because Abeta is ‘sticky,’ it clumps together into plaque,” Moussa says.

He says his study suggests the remaining Abeta inside the neuron (that isn’t pushed out) destroys the cells, not the plaques that build up outside. “When tau does not function, the cell cannot remove the garbage, which at that point includes Abeta as well as tangles of nonfunctioning tau, and the cell dies. The Abeta released from the dead neuron then sticks to the plaque that had been forming.”

Moussa’s experiments in animal models also show less plaques accumulate outside the cell when tau is functioning; when tau was reintroduced into neurons that did not have it, plaques did not grow.

Malfunctioning tau can occur due to errant genes or through aging. As individuals grow older, some tau can malfunction while enough normal tau remains to help clear the garbage. In these cases, the neurons don’t die, he says. “That explains the confusing clinical observations of older people who have plaque build-up, but no dementia,” Moussa says.

Moussa has long sought a way to force neurons to clean up their garbage. In this study, he shows that nilotinib, a drug approved to treat cancer, can aid in that process. Nilotinib helps the neuron clear garbage, but requires some functional tau, he says.

“This drug can work if there is a higher percentage of good to bad tau in the cell,” Moussa says. “There are many diseases of dementia that have malfunctioning tau and no plaque accumulation, such as frontal temporal dementia linked to Parkinsonism,” Moussa says. “The common culprit is tau, so a drug that helps tau do its job may help protect against progression of these diseases.”

Eyes of canopy green flitted around a large, conversing crowd, taking in all the guests, men in their expensive looking tuxedos and women in their over the top designer dresses, hoping he didn’t appear to be too out of place among the other guests. His tux was on loan from a friend, as he didn’t own a tux, just suits, and his were never more than a hundred dollars at the most as it was. Yet here, surrounded by California’s elite, he’d never felt more like a pile of rags, even in his top-notch tux.

Because today is International Women’s Day, let me introduce you to one of my favourite women:

Dr. Mildred Scheel (1932-1985), doctor, founder of the Deutsche Krebshilfe (German Cancer Aid, Germany’s largest Cancer Research Fund).

“I had the pleasure to meet Mildred Scheel personally. The way she made her dreams come true – with an exceptionally strong will to overcome difficulties and resistance – always excited my admiration. As she put it: “Where there’s a will, there’s a way, even if it appears to be difficult or impassable. If you want to achieve something – you can.”
Mildred Scheel always wanted to help. As daughter of a radiologist, she developed a lively interest in medicine. She studied medicine and passed her state exam with the highest marks. In 1969 she married Walter Scheel, who was elected Federal President in 1974. As “First Lady”, one of Mildred’s duties was to take on a social task. At that time, to talk about cancer was a social taboo. As a physician, Mildred Scheel had seen patients suffering from cancer almost daily and was fully aware of the silence surrounding the disease and the importance of giving patients a voice.
As a consequence, she founded German Cancer Aid in September 1974. Since then, the development of German Cancer Aid has been a success story. Mildred Scheel died in 1985. Some may call it irony of fate that she died from cancer. But her legacy, German Cancer Aid, lived on and became Germany’s leading nongovernmental funding organisation in the field of oncology.”

Dr. h.c. Fritz Pleitgen
President of the German Cancer Aid
