once you start to notice these little turns of phrase you literally can’t unsee them
'protests turn violent'
'clashes with police'
'violence breaks out'
'rocked by blasts', when referring to gaza bombing
all the nice vague statements that carefully avoid mentioning an actor, because it sounds worse if you do. this violence just spontaneously started happening, it’s crazy!!!!
i’m really tired of it
loaded language and media bias

advise for a very insecure and sad teen girl?
Ask yourself — be frank — what’s the reward you get for being sad and insecure? Do you get extra attention from the people who try to fix or rescue you? Do you get to opt out of big goals and scary commitments? Consider that those rewards ( pay-offs ) are nothing compared to the joy of moving forward. I give you permission to be sad and insecure for one more week.
You are such a fucking loser oh my god
write an overrated reactionary story about a bunch of shaved apes beating the piss out of each other and be sure to inject a lot of pseudo philosophical nonsense in between, that will cure your sadness and insecurity and make you feel unwarranted self importance. also: be male.
Researchers discover protein’s ability to inhibit HIV release
A family of proteins that promotes virus entry into cells also has the ability to block the release of HIV and other viruses, University of Missouri researchers have found.
"This is a surprising finding that provides new insights into our understanding of not only HIV infection, but also that of Ebola and other viruses," said Shan-Lu Liu, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor in the MU School of Medicine’s Department of Molecular Microbiology and Immunology.
The study was recently published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Liu, the corresponding author of the study, is also an investigator with the Christopher S. Bond Life Sciences Center at MU.
According to estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than one million Americans currently are living with AIDS. AIDS, which stands for acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, is a condition characterized by progressive failure of the immune system. It is caused by the human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1).
When HIV-1 or any virus infects a cell, it replicates and spreads to other cells. One type of cellular protein—T cell immunoglobulin and mucin domain, or TIM-1—has previously been shown to promote entry of some highly pathogenic viruses into host cells. Now, the MU researchers have found that the same protein possesses a unique ability to block the release of HIV-1 and Ebola virus.
