Could scientists be close to a cure for a disease that has killed more than 25 million people since 1981? We realize now it is not a death sentence like it was before but a cure is what we ultimately seek. According to the Daily Telegraph, researchers at Denmark’s Aarhus University Hospital believe they are “within months” of a breakthrough that could lead to an affordable cure for the millions of people living with the disease.
There are even some investments to possibly get in on a cure payout. Sangamo BioSciences, Inc. (SGMO: NASDAQ) is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company is engaged in the research, development and commercialization of zinc finger deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA)-binding proteins (ZFPs), a naturally occurring class of proteins. Its lead ZFP Therapeutic, SB-728-T, a ZFN-modified autologous T-cell product for the treatment of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)/acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), is the first therapeutic application of its ZFN technology and is being evaluated in an ongoing Phase 11 and two Phase I/II clinical trials.
But more about the Danish Scientists technique which involves flushing the HIV from “reservoirs” in human DNA to the surface of cells. With the help of a separate vaccine, the human body would then be able to kill the virus with its own immune system. “I am almost certain that we will be successful in releasing the reservoirs of HIV,” said Aarhus University research team member Dr Ole Søgaard, who remained optimistic but cautious about the potential results.

This open letter to the Church is going viral for a good reason. We basically pay taxes and help churches out but yet they come back and discriminate against us. Yes, Church’s get to go exempt so they get a free ride as far as I am concerned. The letter seems to be based on a Macklemore concert and their song “Same Love”, which I first heard riding on an airplane the other day and was brought to tears. It really is an amazing song and we love this piece below and hope that churches respond in a positive way.
I got to go to the Macklemore concert on Friday night. If you want to hear about how that went, ask me, seriously, I want to talk about it until I die. The whole thing was great; but the best part was when Macklemore sang “Same Love.” Augustana’s gym was filled to the ceiling with 5,000 people, mostly aged 18-25, and decked out in thrift store gear (American flag bro-tanks, neon Nikes, MC Hammer pants. My Cowboy boyfriend wore Cowboy boots…not ironically….). The arena was brimming with excitement and adrenaline during every song, but when he started to play “Same Love,” the place about collapsed. Why? While the song is popular everywhere, no one, maybe not even Macklemore, feels its true tension like we do in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. If you’re not familiar, here’s the video:
What do you think of Justin Bieber’s new haircut? It is a big longer bangs than he had it a few weeks ago. Wow that sure grows fast. The hair is shorter on the sides it seems than when he made his debut here in US performing. It still stands a bit closer to his trademark bang cut but with a trim and slim look. Do you think this is swag for the young musician? Does he look more like a lesbian than ever and will lesbians around the world start changing their Justin Do’s to reflect this?
You may have looked around and watched many loving couples celebrating Valentines Day this year. Were you disgusted that you had to spend this special Holiday by yourself? Do you dread spending another Valentines by yourself? You really ought to considering actually doing something about it! Lesbian online dating is easier and faster than ever, so the odds are if you start looking for someone right now, you’ll have an exciting date with a new potential soulmate in time for your own holiday celebration.
Valentines Day isn’t just about chocolates, flowers and gifts – it has a deeper more intimate meaning for romantic couples who want to express their true love for each other. Having someone special in your life, worthy of that excitement and passionate about giving it back to you as good as they get it from you is what dating should be all about. That’s where experts like Girlfriends Meet editor Julie Kanako can be very helpful with simple tips to turn next Valentines day into a successful holiday.
“What we want everyone to know is that being single isn’t some kind of curse on Valentines Day” said Ms. Kanako “There are millions of single ladies online right now going through exactly the same kinds of apprehension that you might be feeling, and that shared emotional angst may actually be exactly the kind of common ground that a lasting lesbian romance is built upon. The mistake is to let yourself falsely believe you are the last single lesbian lady on Earth tonight, when in fact there are more people looking for love than there are who have found the committed relationship or casual encounter they seek. Keep your chin up, get online and don’t block yourself from having a great time!’
As with any other aspect of internet activity, your online romantic prospects are exactly what YOU make of them. Taking a few minutes to create a completely free lesbian online dating site account and filling in the basic profile information is an excellent investment in your future (for example Valentines day 2014). We all know it doesn’t guarantee you’ll find the love of your life that same day. The possibility does exist at the very least you’ll be positioning yourself for a much more gratifying Holiday schedule in the months or years to come, alongside someone you can date with pride!
Even the naughtiest of us boys will have a Merry Christmas this year thanks to a tweet or shall I say a tweet from Ryan Murphy. Darren Criss is teased here in this Shirtless photo For Glee’s “Men Of McKinley” Calendar. Who would you like to see shirtless in this calender filled with nerd, jock, and twink goodness?
Chris Colfer (Kurt), Cory Monteith (Finn), Matthew Morrison (Mr, Schuester, and Mark Salling (noah) will definitely have some hot shirtless photos. I would mostly pick Chord Overstreet to be one of the hottest jocks on the show and Kevin Michael who plays Artie is actually quite cute and might surprise you the most in such a calendar of males.

I don’t care if it shows my age, I am willing to admit that I have been on the internet since way back when images took forever to load on the screen and the only way to find porn was to check out all the link lists and directories. Anyone else remember the world B.G (before Google)?
I really don’t need to tell you that the internet has come a long way since then, but with the good always comes the bad. This is one of those posts all about what happens when the bad get their hands on technology and use it for evil.
No, I’m not talking about some kind of mysterious Bond villain in a hollow mountain threatening to end the world unless he’s given “one million dollars” (how many of you just did the pinkie to lip gesture then? Sad people! lol), nor am I talking about pirates who stamp their feet about getting things for free and then complain that their favorite bands aren’t touring anymore or their fave porn site shut down (useless idiots living in their moms basement).
I’m talking about lowlifes like Hunter Moore – the people who abuse the freedom the internet brings and use it to cash in on other peoples misery.
Yes, the lovely Hunter Moore will be the subject of this bile-infused post.
If you don’t know who I’m talking about, he’s the guy who created the site IsAnyoneUp.com, a disgusting place where people sent in images and videos of their ex boyfriends and girlfriends (or presumably just people they wanted to attack and had the ammunition to do so) and which then linked the media to their various profiles out on the internet. It was stalking, quite blatantly.
Victims had their intimate moments broadcast for all to see, with the information about them easily accessible. Many of those who were victims of this disgusting waste of skin then had abuse from others for daring to have their content stolen and distributed by someone else without their permission.
Now, I know some of the more liberal minded amongst you would be thinking “they should have expected something, who makes a pic or video and gives it out to others?” And I would agree with you to a point. But why is this any different to someone posting an email or personal letter on the internet for all to read? Would that be acceptable to you?
So, back to the story…
The disgusting Hunter Moore eventually gave up his little hellhole of a site and sold it to an anti-bullying charity, and some might have thought that would be the end of it.
Personally, I would have enjoyed seeing him sued, repeatedly, over and over again until he was having to sell organs in exchange for clothing. And it would have been nice to have all of his personal humiliation recorded and shared around the internet for all his little freaky fans to enjoy and wallow in too. But alas, that didn’t happen.
Instead, he got away with it, and he made some money through the sale of the site and the estimated $20,000 a month through advertising – yeah, being a sick little pervert obviously is profitable for some.
But now, with the revelation that he’s not happy with the money he’s made humiliating others (presumably he wasted it all on pot, lube and tissues) and intends to start a new project where he plans to “introduce the mapping stuff so you can stalk people”.
Yeah, that sounds like wholesome family fun, right?
No one knows how this might play out just yet. There are suggestions and discussions out there mentioning that he plans to add cell phone numbers, email addresses, employment details, home address and family details to his content in the future. Basically, it seems like he plans to do it all over again, but with even more information to allow others to attack and assault and generally humiliate people all around the world.
It’s hard to know for sure how real that is, but Anonymous is taking it seriously, and has issued their own threat.
Yes, that lovely hacktivist collective famous for publicly trolling the cult of $cientology, taking down a paedophile ring that Interpol couldn’t touch, exposing abusive NYPD officers macing girls in the street and – their lesser known – bitching about the Pirate Bay being taken down, have issued a direct threat to Hunter Moore.
Not happy with cyber-battling dictatorial regimes and supporting the freedom of the internet all around the world (I don’t think any Anon’s have full time jobs) they have picked up on the suggestion that Hunter Moore is about to be back in business and threatened war.
In a recent statement by the masked superheroes of the internet, the Anon collective made their intentions clear:
“We will protect anyone who is victimized by abuse of our internet, we will prevent the stalking, rape, and possible murders as by-product of his [Hunter Moore] sites.
It added: “Operation anti-bully. Operation hunt Hunter engaged. We are Anonymous, we are legion, we do not forgive, we do not forget, Hunter Moore, expect us.”
To prove that the group is not one to make false threats, the Anonymous collective then published Hunter’s address, and detailed numerous family members also.
So you wanna bully and attack innocent people Hunter? Looks like you’re about to get a massive dose of your own medicine.
This is from a Facebook post that is a lifesaver if you ask me. HIV Stigma is such a huge thing and most people blow off HIV and think they will not come down with complications from it or die from it. With so many ways to get tested now you do not have to worry about going into a clinic and seeing piers to do it. Just go into a Walgreens or CVS or pick up an oral test online. Getting tested though is not the concern it is getting treated and you MUST get treated if you know that you have the virus. Let’s come together and fight this stigma not only on World Aids Day, December 1st, but everyday.
Recently I had a friend (who shall remain nameless, of course) confide to me that he is HIV-positive. He had concealed this from most people, including me, for far longer than I would have guessed. In fact, when I asked him how long it had been since he found out, I expected an answer in terms of weeks or months at the most. In actuality he had been HIV-positive for at least two years, if not more, and by this time he was noticeably experiencing more and more symptoms of an immune system under duress. The reason he disclosed his status to me is because he wanted advice on how to go about seeking medical treatment due to his lack of insurance. Understandably, many uninsured individuals are wholly ignorant of the options available to them, especially when it concerns diagnoses as serious as HIV. The fact that he went two or more years without treatment, though disturbing since treatment should begin as soon as possible after discovery per emergent recommendations, is not what disturbed me most. What disturbed me most was the fact that he was not wholly ignorant of the options available to him but was afraid to utilize them because of perceived stigma. When I mentioned a facility in his city that provides linkage to services like prescription medications and further medical testing for the viral load and T-cell count, he told me he was aware it is there but he was afraid to make an appointment because he did not want to risk being seen by others he may know. This tells me that there truly is a disconnect between what is perceived by the general population and what the reality is.

We know Glenn Beck is cray cray but he has really outdid him self this time. He was seen on a video dunking Obama in a jar of his own piss and then selling it on eBay earlier today. What kind of nut job would do this?
It is rather creepy if you ask me. “Now some will say that all Glenn Beck did is put the president in a jar of pee-pee,” Beck went on. “While technically correct, yes, I prefer to call this work of art by its more appropriate and professional title. I like to call this, ‘Flobama.’ Sure we can dumb it down for the masses of little people so they can understand. Yes, we have Obama in pee-pee. Mmm? Oui? Yes? This can be yours for a bargain price of $25,000.”

Will we be seeing NFL Players with erections on National TV in coming months or have we already seen them and just not thought it was our imagination? Today Yahoo! Sports News reported that NFL Players may be taking Viagra on the field. The Chicago Bears’ Brandon Marshall says some NFL players use Viagra to give them “stamina” on the field when asked if they are taking pills such as adderall.
Perhaps he was joking but when you think about it… Athletes may find that it assists in blood flow, which helps in getting oxygen around the body faster and aids in endurance. Viagra has been used in cycling as riders try to gain every possible edge. Judging from Lance Armstrong’s accusations and other cyclists findings they may have tried it as well.
Now we all know during the Summer Olympics of one of the most viral photos was a bronze medalist that was looking rather happy in his pants after the win. Henrik Rummel denies having an erection during the Olympic medal ceremony but now that we know Viagra may be involved in endurance maybe he really was.
Speaking of the NFL if you are a fan make sure you pick up this card for a $100 bonus. A hard piece of plastic that you can even put your Rx purchases of Viagra on…
Please continue with the Viagra we are loving the erections. This may turn me into a full time sports fan! Who needs porn when we have stuff like this to watch. College Wrestling anyone?
