fight-for-the-cure

It doesn’t matter if it’s only a small scene, some people forget we still have a lot to fight for in the LGBT community. In at least 73 countries being gay still a crime, until 1973 being gay was considered a disorder and a lot of people still fighting for the “gay cure” and I know sometimes we act like we have it all, the world doesn’t have homophobia anymore and we already have the representation we need but this is not true.

Trini it’s the first superhero who is queer in the big screen and this is important, don’t ignore it by saying “It’s only a small scene”, because neither way it’s really important for us. This doesn’t mean we will stop fighting for more, it just means we shouldn’t erase her importance just because she won’t have a big coming out or openly talk about her sexuality the whole movie.

“Cas, it’s bad. She’s—She’s just dying in there and I can’t do anything to help her. We should’ve never let that bastard stay with her to protect her. What was I thinking?” Dean knew he was rambling. He had to air out what has been rattling around in his brain for the past few hours and he sure as hell couldn’t stand there and watch Claire like that. Cas needed to know.

“This guy has never seen a day out of the Queen’s castle and I left Claire in his hands? I don’t trust him; Sam doesn’t trust him, and I know you sure as hell wouldn’t even have let me leave Claire alone like that. And now…” He paused, his voice sharp as he stared out to the bleak night. “Now she might be gone for good and it’ll be my fault. Jody doesn’t even know where she is and I’ll have to tell her another child died because of us.

“She’s family, Cas. She’s part of our family, and she’s fighting like a Winchester to get cured of this. I know you and her aren’t actually related, but man does she remind me of you sometimes,” his tone is a little lighter now, remembering long lost memories of when the world wasn’t as chaotic as it is now. “She would have loved to see you, man. Hell, it’s been days since we’ve seen you, too, and I—“

“We’re sorry, but the voice message box has now been filled. Thank you for calling,” an automated voice cut Dean off, reality once again returning tenfold. It’s been that way for a while now, Dean calling Castiel’s voicemail and leaving a message that is too long. Of all times, now it decides to fill up just when this message was the most important.

Dean’s eyes sting. He knew the message was over, but the phone remained in attached to his ear. “and I need you right now. Claire needs you. Just… just be okay and come back to m—her.”

“Dean,” Sam’s voice came from the room. It didn’t sound good.

Dean placed his phone in his pocket and took a deep breath before returning to the room.

Meanwhile in Heaven, Castiel fights with every last angel to get back to Earth. His family needs him.

Cutting Science Funding Today Costs Us More Overall

“How much money will we save by cutting funding to the EPA? To NASA Earth Science? To the National Institutes for Health? Take all those numbers for all those organizations that the proposed federal budget would slash and add them up. Now, do the math on the other side. What’s the cost of environmental pollution? Of unclean, unsafe water? Of air that puts us at risk of health problems like asthma, lung disease and COPD? Of a loss of Earth monitoring for extreme weather, climate change, sea level rise, droughts, and natural disasters? Of the cessation of medical research, working to fight preventable diseases, and working to cure some of society’s greatest afflictions such as cancer, heart disease, alzheimers and more?”

The President of the United States just released his proposed budget for the next fiscal year, and there are some big losers in the scientific world. The EPA, the NIH, NASA Earth Science and many other organizations that exist for the benefit of America and all of humanity are poised to lose a significant amount of federal funding. This doesn’t simply affect the scientists who lose their jobs. If we take as a given that the projects that these organizations invest in are vital at some level, and that they will need to be accomplished at some point, we’re actually making it far more expensive in the long run. The loss of expertise, the cessation of production and the exodus of the team that would provide scientific continuity are all extremely costly, and will make all of these projects cost us more than they would have overall. We saw this lesson firsthand just a few years ago with James Webb. 

Are we really willing to throw away so much money and time now just to shave a tiny bit off the deficit for the short-term?

Supergirl Season Finale Speculation

Okay so, I know everyone has been speculating that Mon-El will get lead poisoning and will get sent to Phantom Zone in the finale, and that’s what the Karamel goodbye scene will be about, but based on recent news and promos I don’t think that will happen. So, I created an outline of how I think the episode will go, and here it is. I’ll go scene by scene:

22: “I know you love me and all, but could you stop threatening the doctor?”
49: “Fight like hell.” 

(A/N): You haven’t said with who, so I’ll choose because I’m excited. I am picking Dean Winchester because it sounds like him, I think. Hope that’s okay ;)

Falling in love was easy, loving each other was too. Fighting for each other was too, and protecting came as if it was nothing. It began to get hard when she got sick. When Dean couldn’t fight for her. All he could do was hold her hand, be there for he. He hated being this powerless. Sam was searching for help, for anything. Dean would do anything, just for Y/n to stay alive. 


“Miss Y/l/n, we are so sorry, but the cancer is spreading. We’d like to start a treatment right now.” Dean got furious, he felt angry, because why couldn’t these doctors just step up their game. 


The words he spoke for the next three minutes where horrible, he threatened to kill each and every doctor in this hospital if she died. Y/n tried to calm Dean down, but he wouldn’t listen. 

“Dean!” She yelled, and finally he stopped. “I know you love me and all, but could you stop threatening the doctor?” She said, taking his hand. 

Dean glared at the pale doctor. “I’m sorry for that.” Y/n smiled kindly. The doctor nodded and left. Once the doctor was away, Y/n pulled Dean in a hug. 

“I’m sorry, Y/n.” He sighted. “I just hate that I can’t do anything for you.” Y/n looked up and smiled. 

“That’s not true. You can hold my hand. You can tell me everything will be okay.” 

“Then that is what I’ll do.” 

Her positive vibes didn’t last long. She soon lost her hair, he smiles became rare and she always felt sick, always had pain. It hurt Dean to see her like that. One time, he saw her break down completely. That was hard for him. Y/n wasn’t one to talk about feelings, and he wasn’t either. But then, he had to. And she had to, too. 

“Dean, I’m tired. What do I do? The treatment doesn’t seem to work. Not anymore. All it does is making me sick.” She sobbed against his chest, it was the first time she had in all their time together. 

“I’ll tell you what to do.” Dean said, rubbing her back. “Fight like hell.” He whispered. “You have too. Sam will find something, and if not, you fight until those crappy doctors cure you. You will have a long life. A full life. And I won’t leave you here. I’ll be there with you. I’ll hold you hand. Every day, every night.” 

Y/n looked up at him. She hadn’t realized he was crying too. 

“I’ll try. I’ll try and fight. But I can’t without you.” She wiped away one of his tears with her tump. 

“You won’t have too. I’ll be right here.” Dean said and smiled. 

“Oh, and just saying, but bald looks good on you.” 

My mom was diagnosed with MS (Multiple Sclerosis) when I was 10 months old. She’s been bravely fighting it for 23 years.

I’d be lying if I said it has been easy. She struggles with it. My family struggles with it. We do okay, but it’s hard. Unfortunately, there’s no cure for MS.

The MS Society is Jamie Benn’s charity of choice. He rents a suite each game for families who have been affected by MS and he donates money to them frequently. He was just presented with an award from the MS Society for his work with them.

Jamie Benn is my favorite hockey player. Not just because of his skill, his incredible leadership, or his power on the ice- but because he goes above and beyond for a charity that means so much to me.

It’s always been my dream to meet Jamie and to tell him thank you- to genuinely thank him for helping fight for a cure for a disease that has caused so much hurt and destruction in my family.

My amazing friend Sam met Jamie recently. She told him about my family and my story and Jamie made this video for me 💚

Thank you, Captain. You’re truly the best 🌟

This is why it’s a problem.

Jacinto Convit García (11 September 1913 – 12 May 2014) was a Venezuelan physician and scientist, known for developing a vaccine to fight leprosy and his studies to cure different types of cancer. He played a significant role in founding Venezuela’s National Institute of Biomedicine and held many leprosy-related positions. Among Convit’s many honors for his work on leprosy and tropical diseases was Spain's Prince of Asturias Award in the Scientific and Technical Research category and France's Legion of Honor. In 1988, Convit was nominated for a Nobel Prize in Medicine for his experimental anti-leprosy vaccine.

For the last 500 years, Western Culture has suppressed the idea of disembodied intelligences–of the presence and reality of spirit. Thirty seconds into the DMT flash, and that’s a dead issue.

Elia and Henir fight. Elia, out of annoyance, transforms Henir into a child - while, unfortunately, Henir does the same with him. Now Ishmael has to keep the two children from fighting while searching for a curing spell. Bonus if lil Henir throws small time-and-space cubes at Elia's head!

The only thing worse than dealing with two powerful, pissed off Ancient Gods, Ishmael decided, was dealing with two powerful, pissed off Ancient Gods in the bodies of mortal children.

“Um, Lady Elia,” she said for the umpteenth time, “maybe you shouldn’t try and hit Henir…”

“He started it,” Elia grumped.  “Ishmael, I order you to take his cubes away.”

Technically, Ishmael had to obey orders, but she hesitated.  “Uh… I can’t touch them, my lady.”

Henir cackled and pelted Elia with more cubes.  Elia covered her face with her arms.

“Meanie!”

“When did I ever sign up for this?” Ishmael sighed to nobody in particular.
