“The role of the infinately small in nature is infinately large”- louis pastel
I finally get a chance to start working in my professors research group. the moment of truth comes tomorrow: he will ask me to explain the process of PCR and if I “satisfy” requriments then I get assigned to do some PCR of my own. I’m intensely nervous but also excited.
While I was shadowing a graduate student he told me he’s been able to clone cells before and although it was intensely difficult and based on skill and luck, it is possible. This is obvious since they’ve been able to clone cats, and sheep and what not so far. Then I asked if people could be cloned with all the advancements we have in technology, you know….just out of curiousity. He said to me “of course” and I asked why they don’t and he merely responds “because they government does not allow us to”.
Crazy huh? people just like you, just like me walking around and functioning in society…i’m talking exact mirror images simulatenously living. but because the “law” does not permit us to, we do not. I agree with this law but I wouldn’t mind having someone else just like me grow up in a different part of the world and then meet them one day. I would love to see how different geographics, climates, and social socieities affect the phenotype, mentality, and personal behavior of an individual. I think it would actually be beneficial to science…just a thought.
While the citizens are distracted, the governments will be forced to adopt policies by american and european leaders that would never have been democratically acceptable…..
It’s simple really, We distract you, you Help U.S. and WE always win. i made a punny :P buttt these decades of ongoing war to spread “big business” and aquire economic gains will have huge detremental affects.
It all began with WWII. Key terms to educate yourselves on: the Carter Doctrine, Strait of Harmouz, Reagan Corollary to the Carter Doctrine, Opperation Dessert Storm, the U.S. 5th fleet, ….add it up people.
Ironically, a wise judge at the the Nuremberg trials said “the planning of a war of aggression is the supreme war crime, for it contains within it the seeds of all the others”. These diabolically schemed wars by the leaders of the us and europe should not go unpunished by the international criminal court. But if these political/economic/neo-liberal/greed bastards continue to get away with this now (which I know they will) then, I firmly believe that heaven is a court, and they will pay for their schematic inhumanly unjustified killings! Karmas a bitch.
The people are suffed from poverty while their leaders live lavishly care-free. Now they are fed up. In Egypt, an exporter of wheat, the people suffer from hunger while the King, whose power is heavily supported by the U.S., stood for a symbol of democracy. As he rose to one of the richest men in the world, net worth approx 40-70 billion, his people continued to go on without justice. It was not a democracy, it was u.s.-backed dictatorship. So the citizens untied and were unifed by desperation and the hunger for freedom from his rule. They’ve almost won but quite. Mubarak didn’t step down, open your eyes people. Listen to his speech. He’s transferring unspecified powers, at some unknown time, to His Vice President. The people will soon get a true shot at democratic elections, or will they? When they elect a new president and he wins over parliment, what’s to stop the generals from claiming an election to be null or void….the “law body” stops it right? Let me remind you who has manipulated that law body and corrupt. Kinda eerie huh?
Thus far, the fight lives on and it is spreading like wild fire. Libya, Yemen, Bahrain, Egypt…the fights continue. If Egypt actually succeeds in gaining total countrol of the military and the corporals’ powers are diminished, I truly believe the whole middle east equation will change. I have hope for what’s to come, history continues to repeat itself. The key to all this, educate youself read about what has happened in the past, read about whatever it is you love like science, art, history. Because, knowledge is something no one can take from you without taking your life.
I’m doing research for my professor, i’m pretty excited. I can’t believe i’m on his team :) i got something to cheer for again, I know that sounds silly but this is really giving me hope. I need to buckle down and start studying for the MCAT, April is right around the corner and if it was possible to bomb that test…at the rate i’m going; it’s more than likely a possibility. But tomorrow is my friends birthday, and I haven’t been dancing in months. Time to get some fresh air…what say you tumblr?! I’m thinkin’ it’s a go
No plans. Whah whah whaaaaaaah hehe -_-
Egypt, Lebanon, Tunisia, and Iraq I applaud the people living in these nations and so many of their efforts for a more just government. America step back, take your ditry business hands off of their battles and let the people win this fight. So far, the people are winning. We are a product of our past and living history, I do firmly believe this. “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”, thank you MLK. I think it’s only appropirate to quote him seeing that the civil rights movement was one of the most successful social movements. The difference, Egypt is lacking a leader until now. I believe Mohamed ElBaradei, Nobel Peace Prize winner might Just be the man for the job :)
Things are wayyyy better than they have ever been! I think things are finally looking up. :))))
I’m trying really hard to get you out of my head. I hope this is just a phase and it passes soon. I’m tired of caring because it hurts and consumes too much of my time.
I finally said goodbye to the first boy I ever loved. I never new it would be so hard. I tried it once but I went running back to him. This time i’m done for good, I hope. I don’t know if it was love though. I’m so ill experienced with this side of life, sometimes I think it was always only in my mind. We started out as friends and then I grew extremely attached. He helped me when I was down and I was there for him too.Typical story. I traveled half way across the world, and he was definitely part of the reason. Maybe my expectations were too high. But, I left pretty broken hearted and also pretty sure his best friend fell in love with me.
I don’t know what happened, what went wrong, or what any of that really means. Maybe somethings are better left unsaid, enigmatic…thats a good word.
I say it’s ‘goodbye for good’ because I poured my heart out to him finally in a message, and I swear I heard crickets in response. All he said was “I didn’t know you felt that way” I wanted to scream at the top of my lungs “WAS I NOT OBVIOUS!?!” but, I just broke down in tears. I couldn’t take it anymore.
He made me so unlike myself, I began to hate me. He was the only boy who could have told me to jump and I would have without asking questions. I don’t think that’s healthy. I was never myself around him, I tried so hard to impress him. It wasn’t natural at all. I see that now. He didn’t love me the same way I loved him. So it’s time to move on because I deserve to be loved in return. I can’t keep hurting myself trying to figure any of it out. It’s not worth it.
Mumford and Sons said it best “Love it will not betray you, dismay or enslave you,It will set you free. Be more like the man you were made to be”. <333
