The Word! 002

So here we are back again.  You thought we would learn from the last time, but I’m becoming more into sadism.  So as I force these out of my brain through an ear hole straight to my computer into your eye holes, we are just continuing these habits.  Strangely it feels kinda good though,  right?  I know you feel it too, so check it out, it’s The Word! here to give you a little something FOX/CNN won’t give you.  News that I think is news worthy.

From Oil spills not near the gulf to soup kitchens and tree men; maybe your fix is super rich bankers or computer makers; perhaps some art or movie trailers; how about the cure for AIDS/HIV.  What ever you need (out of only those things) I got it all here. So keep readin’.

Oil Spill In China

News Article / Pictures

It seems it must be the new country trend to have an oil spill and China has piggy backed on to the US.  This actually ends up working well because since we have had our 1st Amendment rights taken, no one can any longer come within 65ft of the Gulf Oil Spill without a permit.  So being the nice people that the Chinese are, they felt as if it was their duty to give us Americans our fix of disturbing shots of black saturated waters and slimy animals and ocean objects.  In all seriousness oil spills ruin lives, economies, habitats, pretty much just plain suck.  So China we feel your pain.

Indonesian Tree Man Trapped Inside His Mutating Body

This has to be one of the weirdest things I have ever seen come from humanity.  Dede Koswara has human papillomavirus a common skin ailment, where he will get small patches of warts on his body.  It is then compounded by a rare immune deficiency that allows his HPV to run wild across his body. The result, he ends up with what can be described as looking like tree bark warts spread across his hands and feet. He still carries a good outlook on life which shows his strength of character and spirit.  Doctors are trying find a cure and Mr. Koswara is dedicated to finding one, “For a cure,” he says, “I’d go anywhere in the world.”

Did We Find A Cure To The AIDS-HIV Virus Finally?!

News Article / Video Link

The new antibodies cover most HIV strains, but not all. Researchers are now working on combining multiple antibodies into a cocktail capable of neutralizing all variants of the virus. Unpublished research by Dr. John Mascola, deputy director of the Vaccine Research Center and coauthor on the study, shows that combining multiple broadly neutralizing antibodies results in a near-universal vaccine – only 1 strain in 95 survived an early combo.

Bailout Bank JP Morgan Chase Records $4.8bil Profit This Quarter

After receiving a sum of more than $12bil US as a bailout the company records a major profit this quarter.  I am curious if they plan on paying back the $12bil debt that they have put our country into with their tax grants or if they listen to Steve Miller and just gonna “Go on take the money and run?”

TED Video : Steve Jobs Speech @ Stanford University Commencement

TED VIDEO / Google Video

I watched this speech a few years ago and just recently stumbled across it again.  Jobs is an excellent orator and has a great life story of failure and out of that failure growing more successful and stronger.  He has gone from nothing to something back to nothing and back again to something.  Jobs says, “Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose.”  He has great vision and interpretation of life’s many roads and travels.  This video is sure to be inspiring to you “Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish”.
