A while ago I posted about the latent #ToxoplasmaGondii parasite and how acute infection has exact the same symptomes as Covid19. My hypothesis was that an external factor (like #GGGGG or toxines or stress) was activating the latent cystes and this was what we saw with #Covid19. Image
Reading this article ties all the bits and pieces together. This '#coronavirus' is indeed an #Exosomes, released under cellular stress and is a reaction to illness, not the cause! Antigen presenting cells bind to target cells (killer T cells or helper T) and exchanges exosomes
This is a vital and highly regulated process making sure the immune system deals adequate with the situation. The last thing we should do if tamper with it, without completely understanding it. Attacking this 'virus' potentially derails the entire immune response. Maybe the

#Endoparasites like #ToxoplasmaGondii are the cash cow if #BigPharma. Hidden away in our cells, often in dormant cystes, they cause episodes of acute infections when our immune systems or weakened. You can see outbreaks of flu like illness, a just like #Covid19, now that we
are enjoying our extra dose of EMF radiation of the network that we're not allowed to talk about. For the huge amount of people who won't die yet but have the chronic parasite cystes inside, we can expect increade in chronic illnesses like Alzheimers, Parkinson's, autoimmune,
Cancers and so on. The body tries to adapt to toxicity (Like oxidative stress from GGGGG or heavy metals) by releasing #exosomes.Toxoplasma infection corrupts those. @realDonaldTrump @joepicov @LotusOak2 @SpunkyStrings @Ella_Ster @cryptometal @Br_Christiaens @Ntornee

Parasite movie is not about the contrast in standard of living between rich & poor, it is about surveillance. So does the poster with eye stripe. #Parasite #movies #Films #Cinema #surveillance Image
Moon Gwang mention that she have cut the wire of the surveillance camera to assure Choong Sook that she don't need to worry about her presence.

Oh Geun Sae is a loan defaulter and he have been forced to hide in the basement to avoid tracked by surveillance.
Kim Ki Taek kills Lee and hides in the basement, police couldn't able to track him even though they tried checking through the surveillance cameras in the street.

Either a person is civil loan defaulter or a criminal murderer the surveillance of equal strength is applied by

Congressman John Lewis once said “Do not get lost in a sea of despair. Be hopeful, be optimistic.”

What makes you hopeful? Seriously. Share it!

If you’re like me, you could use a few reasons to keep your head up.

Here are 50 reasons to stay hopeful from the past 3+ years.
50. On Jan. 28, 2017, thousands showed up to airports in support of Muslim families impacted by Trump’s unconstitutional #MuslimBan.

That night, a federal judge in NY issued a stay allowing people stranded in airports to temporarily avoid deportation.

Secuplik masalah sosial Korea dan tour #Parasite dari aing, (mantan) penghuni Ahyeondong 1-Guyeok atau sekarang lebih dikenal sebagai area redevelopment Ahyeondong 699.

Sebelomnya, ini background cari rumah di (tengah) kota Seoul.

-Tanah mahal
-Kontur tanah berbukit
-Ada sentimen negatif sama rumah di basement
-Apartemen lebih mahal dr gedung tua tanpa lift
-Toilet di Parasite nyata adanya

Ahyeondong 699 tuh lokasi ‘emas’ terakhir ditengah kota Seoul. Dikepung sama gedung2 tinggi, both kantor dan apartemen.

Dulu, daerah2 sekitarnya semuanya perumahan kumuh. Satu persatu mulai kena projek redevelopment. Contohnya gini, liat yg depan masih bangunan pendek & tua.

Seeing Parasite win Best Picture (along with best director, best original screen play, and best non-English language film [what's up with foreign language as a category?]) was something else - especially as a Korean American.

Here are some reflections:

1/ It felt like the US finally caught up to the rest of the world in its acknowledgement of Korean media (Korean Dramas, Pop, and Movies). Korean shows and music are popular all throughout the world. There is a reason BTS was number one in 73 countries last year.
2/ Activism is actually fixing some of the gross disparities we see. From the sexism (along with harassment & assault) being addressed in the #metoo & #timesup movements to the racism being addressed in hashtags like #oscarssowhite, public accountability actually changes things.

I have a question for #Parasite director Bong Joon Ho.

I am wondering about his choice of appropriating Native imagery.

I wonder if it was a purposeful message.

As a courtesy, if you have not seen Parasite, there are minor spoilers ahead in my #thread.
In #Parasite, there are two families, one is a poor family struggling to make ends meet, they resort to fraudulently posing as potential employees to get a job with a rich family.

The mother of the rich family buys everything Native-related for her young Boy Scout son.
I won't go into details of the #Parasite film - but at one point, after an entire community is recovering from a disaster, the rich family has a Native-themed party.

Thus, the image I shared.

Fil de 365 pel.lícules essencials pel 2020.
1. Tess (Roman Polanski, 1979)
Esplèndida adaptació de la monumental obra de Thomas Hardy sobre la implacable força del destí, amb una interpretació inoblidable de Nastassja Kinski.
2. Amour (Michael Haneke, 2012)
Una lúcida reflexió sobre la vellesa, el final de la vida i la compassió en forma de pel.lícula sòbria, íntima i sense concessions. El cim de l'obra de Haneke amb un duel interpretatiu antològic entre Jean-Louis Trintignant i Emmanuelle Riva.
3. Laura (Otto Preminger, 1944)
Una fascinant mostra del millor cinema negre amb un guió excepcional on res és el que aparenta ser. El "noir" clàssic al seu màxim nivell i amb Gene Tierney en el paper de la seva vida. Una mostra d'un tipus de cinema irrepetible. #365Films

Hey everyone! I'm very honored and excited to be talking #herps with you today
Here's a little more of how I became a #herpetologist:
As a kid, I loved looking at (and when I could, catching) various critters. On the plains of southeastern Wyoming, that meant a lot of toads (Anaxyrus), tiger salamanders (Ambystoma mavortium) & gartersnakes (Thamnophis). 1/
I occasionally convinced my parents to let me keep one of these natural wonders in a vivarium so I could watch them even closer. I fed them crickets, worms, and whatever other critters I could find. Once, I made the mistake of putting a gartersnake in with a goldfish...

PARASITIC PLANTS! A thread on why cheating beats competing, for the dodder parasite @jianqiang_wu @MikeAxtell @RunoSteven @kevinfolta @LynnSosnoskie @plantae_org @ASPB @PlantTeaching @QUBIGFS @FrontYoungMinds #Plants #PlantSci #Parasite
For the younger readers out there, a plain language summary on how a plant, commonly called the ‘dodder’ can steal its food and water from other plants, courtesy of the fantastic resource at @FrontYoungMinds… I am also super proud to be an editor here!
The dodder (Cuscuta campestris, or any of the other Cuscuta species) is a parasite, it needs to steal all its food and resource from other plants. The adaptations required to live like this make for a lot of really interesting behavioural contrasts!
