    The Electronic Frontier Foundation’s Cindy Cohn is on fire: “Let’s be clear: Under international human rights law, secret “law” doesn’t even qualify as ‘law’ at all.”

    The US Government and agencies like the DEA, NSA, TSA and FBI conduct mass-scale domestic…

    Wow. Yes. If a law is kept secret from the public, it’s not law, and the public should not be held accountable for breaking it.

    Telling your son not to “be such a girl” lets his sister who overhears the conversation know that being a girl is not a good thing and she should be sorry and ashamed of herself.

    It also reminds your son that being a boy is better than being a girl and therefore he is better than any girl he will ever meet.

    In russian if you cry you get called a cabbage. Vote to change “dont be such a girl to “dont be such a cabbage” say I.

    I

    I

    Nay. Let’s just not shame people for crying.

I did and it is all resolved now. This part was just me letting some of the bad feels out. For the record, apologizing is totally the most adult thing to do but I strongly suggest it even if you don’t identify as an adult.

I’m genuinely glad that it’s resolved.

Screening for breast cancer is a relatively clumsy process of feeling around for lumps. MRI, mammograms and ultrasounds can improve accuracy but they are too expensive to be used during every check-up. 

Now, biomolecular engineers Ravi Saraf and Chieu Van Nguyen from the University of Nebraska in the US have devised a new way of detecting the disease. They’ve created an ‘electronic skin’ that could ‘feel’ through tissue and locate small lumps.

    Let’s stop HIV in New York City

    • If you are HIV-negative, PEP and PrEP can help you stay that way.
    • If you are HIV-positive, PEP and PrEP can help protect your partners.

     

    Daily PrEP

    PrEP is a daily pill that can help keep you HIV-negative as long as you take it every day.

    • Ask your doctor if PrEP (Pre-exposure Prophylaxis) may be right for you.
    • Condoms give you additional protection against HIV, other sexually transmitted infections, and unintended pregnancy.

     

    Emergency PEP

    If you are HIV-negative and think you were exposed to HIV, immediately go to a clinic or emergency room and ask for PEP (Post-exposure  Prophylaxis).

    • PEP can stop HIV if started within 36 hours of exposure.
    • You continue taking PEP for 28 days.

    Many insurance plans including Medicaid cover PEP and PrEP. Assistance may be available if you are uninsured. Visit NYC Health’s website to find out where to get PrEP or PEP in New York City.

    This is such a giant step that barely any people know about it seems, so amazing to see progress in the treatment of HIV

    I honestly thought this might be exaggeration but the CDC says that PrEP is 92% effective. Damn. Damn.
