natgeo Video by @joelsartore. An endangered horned marsupial frog at the El Valle Amphibian Conservation Center. These frogs have completely disappeared from many of their original habitats. It is thought that this species is extremely susceptible to chytridiomycosis, an infectious disease in amphibians caused by the chytrid fungus that is wiping out frogs in Latin America. This individual is part of a conservation breeding colony maintained by the Panama Amphibian Rescue and Conservation Project @amphibianrescue in Panama. To see still images of this frog check out @joelsartore.
Though I generally don’t like it when medical professionals who are NOT treating patients make diagnoses on said patients, 1) the White House physician did publicly share all of his data and findings for the general public to parse, and 2) Sanjay Gupta – an MD – does analyze said findings to come to this conclusion. He specifically cites Trump’s rising coronary calcium score – which went from 34 in 2009 to 133 this year – and his lack of exercise and the fact that the CCS has risen despite him taking meds in saying “the President has heart disease.”
I have no idea if anyone has tried calling Yoosung during the “drink chocolate milk or you die” disease, but if you haven’t; you’re missing out.
EDIT: I’m seeing comments about redoing Yoosung’s route just for this phonecall-You dont have to. This is during Day 4 and you dont have to be on Yoosung’s side to get this phonecall. Just call him after Seven tells him via chat that he cant drink coffee.
A dump of all my concepts and art for my Boku No Hero Academia OC! (The person they’re having a crush on is one of @valkyah‘s OC’s, Jasmine!) Their quirk relates to having Hanahaki Disease but I don’t want to dump too much in this post so if you guys would want to know about that send me an ask I guess!) Her name is Hana but I don’t have a second name for her (would Haki be too obvious lol?)
Whooping cough (pertussis): is a highly contagious respiratory tract infection. In many people, it’s marked by a severe hacking cough followed by a high-pitched intake of breath that sounds like “whoop.” Before the vaccine was developed, whooping cough was considered a childhood disease. Now whooping cough primarily affects children too young to have completed the full course of vaccinations and teenagers and adults whose immunity has faded.
Deaths associated with whooping cough are rare but most commonly occur in infants. That’s why it’s so important for pregnant women — and other people who will have close contact with an infant — to be vaccinated against whooping cough.
i have a condition called bad video game disease and it makes me have bad taste in video games but i don’t care. it doesn’t define me. i can still live a good life. off topic but does anyone have a copy of dark souls III i can borrow
Vox’s own Dylan Matthews recently underwent surgery to donate his kidney as part of a four-person organ donation chain. Dylan’s decision was made purely out of goodwill; as he put it, “Giving a kidney was the most rewarding experience of my life.”

Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants. #Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism. This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and HIV dementia. Nonpsychoactive cannabinoids, such as cannabidoil, are particularly advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity that is encountered with psychoactive cannabinoids at high doses useful in the method of the present invention. A particular disclosed class of cannabinoids useful as neuroprotective antioxidants is formula (This invention provides antioxidant compounds and compositions, such as pharmaceutical compositions, that include cannabinoids that act as free radical scavengers for use in prophylaxis and treatment of disease. The invention also includes methods for using the antioxidants in prevention and treatment of pathological conditions such as ischemia (tissue hypoxia), and in subjects who have been exposed to oxidant inducing agents such as #cancer chemotherapy, toxins, radiation, or other sources of oxidative stress. The compositions and methods described herein are also used for preventing oxidative damage in transplanted organs, for inhibiting reoxygenation injury following reperfusion of ischemic tissues (for example in heart disease), and for any other condition that is mediated by oxidative or free radical mechanisms of injury. In particular embodiments of the invention, the compounds and compositions are used in the treatment of ischemic cardiovascular and neurovascular conditions, and neurodegenerative diseases. #4biddenknowledge
