Please don’t tell girls “The boy who’s picking on you actually just likes you”

Even if it’s true, you shouldn’t teach girls to respect that sort of affection.

And you should definitely not teach boys that expressing their attraction to women through violence and disrespect is ok.

THANK YOU

and then now and again we find something remarkable - something like this. a single manuscript page from a french book of Hours - mid to late 15th century [around the time of the very first printed book]

hand written on vellum 550 years ago - to express that this is a scarce survivor is a little bit of an understatement .. 

written in the reign of Henry VI

Project NEUWalk: Paralyzed rats can walk again thanks to software

EPFL scientists have discovered how to control the limbs of a completely paralyzed rat in real time to help it walk again. Human trials are scheduled to begin during summer 2015.

paralyzed rat

A completely paralyzed rat can be made to walk over obstacles and up stairs by electrically stimulating the severed part of the spinal cord. The EPFL scientists discovered how to control in real-time how the rat moves forward and how high it lifts its limbs. A new lab at the CHUV will extend this technology to human patients as early as next summer using an innovative Gait Platform, bringing the European Project NEUWalk closer to clinical trials.
