Cet été on se greffe aux vacances de mon beau-frère et ses enfants en Thaïlande. Mon discours c’était « on vient avec vous en se décidant à l’arrache, donc on s’adapte à ce que vous avez prévu, du moment qu’on fait des temples ça ira ! »

Mais ça c’était avant de découvrir QU’IL Y A UN JURASSIC PARK EN THAÏLANDE OMG JE VEUX Y ALLER 😱🤩

WTF l’école d’ingé privée où j’ai fait mes études a été rattachée… à… Assas ?! 🙃

Tout le monde a le même ressenti, mais la différence c’est que pour notre génération c’est objectivement vrai 😠

J’adore: dans le dossier pédagogique de l’expo sur les jeux à pièces, le musée de la monnaie de Paris fait figurer des motifs typiques des sols de vieux cafés et restaurants.

COVID can seriously damage your vision, even if you didn’t have symptoms, new study says.

“If you’ve had COVID-19, you may want to have your eyes checked. SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes the disease, can infect the inside of your eyes, according to research published in April in the journal PLOS Pathogens. This holds true even if the virus didn’t enter your body through the surface of your eyes.”




COVID could damage your vision, new study says. Keep an eye out for these symptoms

Extended exposure to SARS-CoV-2 may harm your retinas in particular.

SARS-CoV-2 infects cells lining the blood-retinal barrier and induces a hyperinflammatory immune response in the retina via systemic exposure

Author summary SARS-CoV-2 is known to cause several ocular manifestations in COVID-19 patients; however, the role of eyes in viral transmission and ocular tissue tropism remains elusive. The presence of viral remnants in various ocular tissues and fluids from COVID-19 patients has led to an assumption that SARS-CoV-2 may be transmitted through the eyes. Here, we show that SARS-CoV-2 ocular tropism is through cells lining the BRB. SARS-CoV-2 not only infects the various parts of the eye via systemic exposure but also induces a hyperinflammatory immune and antiviral response in the retina. Unexpectedly, the corneal epithelium was found to be resistant to SARS-CoV-2 infection, and ocular exposure of SARS-CoV-2 failed to cause lung pathology and moribund illness. Cells lining the BRB showed induced expression of viral entry receptors and enhanced susceptibility towards SARS-CoV-2-induced cell death, which is further potentiated with comorbidities such as hyperglycemia. Our findings from this study shed light on the role of BRB in SARS-CoV-2 ocular tropism and the role of eyes in viral transmission.

THIS. This is why ‘I don’t want to put a label on my child’ is harmful. If you don’t know you’re not neurotypical, you end up thinking it’s a personal failing that you don’t fit in/keep up, and that you’re not trying hard enough even though you’ve been trying hard all your life.

Back in the 90s, I had a friend who jumped through many hoops to get a carry permit in NYC. He bought a gun and started carrying regularly on his subway ride from Brooklyn to Manhattan. He sold it a few months later

I asked him why he went through all that trouble only to sell it so soon. He said,

“The longer I carried it, the more I started itching for an excuse to use it”

I think about that a lot

One Patient’s Long COVID Improved After Taking Hallucinogens in Therapy

While work continues to better understand and treat long COVID, one 41-year-old woman has found remarkable relief from her symptoms through the use of psychedelics: specifically, MDMA (3.4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine) and psilocybin, the psychoactive…
