A Rebirth

The most genuine thing about us is our capacity to create, to overcome, to endure, to transform, to love, and to be greater than our suffering.

Two ways of dealing with tear gas grenades from comrades in Turkey:
1. Submerge them in water. Make sure you can close off the container cause the gas will still spread for a while. Don’t use glass, Turkish protesters have used big plastic water gallons.

2. Throw them in the fire so the gas burns off before it can spread. Use a gas mask, burning CS gas creates toxic gas locally. 

Use gloves, gas grenades get hot and can burn your hands.

Think of all the time you could spend with your wife and kids instead of going to the gym (not to say physical fitness/excerise is bad). Show your dedication is to your family, instead of the gym. Your gym won’t feed or clothe you, but your family will.

Family is more important than lifting weights.

Essentially the guy posting this is saying “Hey I love the gym a lot, just imagine how much time I will spending there instead of with you!”

Tonight in Ferguson, Mo. Even CNN is calling out police brutality.

We are watching history unfold. Do not stand down. Spread the word.

No justice, no peace.

500 M-Year Immune System ResetA single factor can reset the immune system of mice to a state likely similar to what it was 500 million years ago, when the first vertebrates emerged.Scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics (MPI-IE) in Freiburg re-activated expression of an ancient gene, which is not normally expressed in the mammalian immune system, and found that the animals developed a fish-like thymus. To the researchers surprise, while the mammalian thymus is utilized exclusively for T cell maturation, the reset thymus produced not only T cells, but also served as a maturation site for B cells – a property normally seen only in the thymus of fish. Thus the model could provide an explanation of how the immune system had developed in the course of evolution.Read more: http://www.laboratoryequipment.com/news/2014/08/image-week-500-m-year-immune-system-reset

“I know a lot of creative people and perhaps by correlation I know a lot of people who struggle with depression. They have told me (and they’ve told the world) how depression sits there, implacable, and drains the color out of the world until no success or joy matters. I believe them, and it becomes increasingly evident that no matter who you are or what you’ve achieved, that depression is a good liar and can make you believe none of it matters.
 
I know and love too many people with depression to believe that it’s something that’s shameful to talk about or to acknowledge. I want them alive and I want them here with us. If you have depression I want you alive and here with us. Don’t let the moment take you. Don’t be afraid to get help. The people who love you want you here. Believe it.”
