We interviewed several of our volunteers and we want to share their personal journeys with you.
Hi I am Tammy Li from Tampa, FL.
My life changed when I learned my family carried a BRCA genetic mutation shortly after the birth of my first child. I was 32 at the time. My father passed the genetic mutation on to me, and his mother and two cousins all had ovarian cancer as well as some breast cancer in their 40s. Only one of them survived it. Once I was tested, I was found to carry two mutations and it turns out my mom is a carrier as well.
While I did have two occurrences of melanoma in my 20s and 30s, I was able to avoid both ovarian cancer and breast cancer by having preventive surgeries. I just turned 50, the first generation in my family to get through the 40s without an ovarian cancer diagnosis. I am focused on not just surviving but thriving for my family and myself. I am not alone, there are millions of people like me. I feel lucky to have had this knowledge and only wish my Aunt Karla had lived through ovarian cancer to see what a gift she gave me. I am now focused on making a better future with better options for my children.

Hoy hablaremos un poco del brahman rojo.. El ganado Brahman Rojo tiene su origen en lo que se conoce como la Costa del Golfo de México en los Estados Unidos y corresponde, fundamentalmente, a los Estados de Texas, Louisiana, Mississipi, Alabama y la Florida.
Los ganaderos de esta región, cruzaron los ganados de origen Gyr e Indubrasil y obtuvieron el color predominante rojo, el blanco con pecas (gargantillo)y el negro o manchas negras que también se consideran como parte del Brahman Rojo. Hasta 1950 la mayor parte del ganado Brahman era gris; hoy el rojo ha logrado una participación dentro de los hatos nacionales del orden del 15 al 20 % del total del ganado puro Brahman.

BOSTON (AP) — Massachusetts is inching closer to licensing so-called "cannabis cafes" where individuals could smoke the drug in a communal setting, while also allowing for the home delivery of marijuana.
A panel studying both issues made several recommendations Wednesday on regulations which must still be approved by the full Cannabis Control Commission before any pot cafes or home delivery businesses can open.
When Massachusetts residents voted overwhelmingly in 2016 to approve the legalization of recreational marijuana, supporters wanted to make sure individuals who live in shared housing, apartment buildings or public housing could still have a place to use pot legally.
That led to the push for pot cafes — or "social use establishments" — where patrons could gather and legally use marijuana with friends.
The panel also recommended the state allow licenses for delivery-only marijuana businesses.
Republican Gov. Charlie Baker and law enforcement officials have raised concerns about pot cafes, saying they could pose a risk to public safety and public health.
The subcommittee approved language explicitly supporting the licensing of cannabis cafes in part by pointing to what they called the uneven enforcement of pot laws in the past. "In light of the need for cannabis consumers who live in public housing to have a legal place to exercise their right to smoke cannabis, and in light of the historic racial disparity in cannabis law enforcement in Massachusetts, social use establishments should be permitted so that consumers have a legal place to consume cannabis outside of their own homes," the subcommittee said in one of its recommendations.
Subcommittee member Andrea Cabral, who formerly served as Suffolk County sheriff and as the state's secretary of public safety, echoed the recommendations, saying it's a matter of fairness. "People want to have an equal opportunity to consume (marijuana)," Cabral said.
If approved, Massachusetts would be among the first states to allow the social consumption of marijuana at pot cafes.

Another one of the last few clutches of 2018. This one hatched on 11/15/18. Not sure who the Father was (my guess is my OD, doesn't look like I hit any OD's) but the Mother is a Spotnose. She holds a special place in my heart because she was part of a pair of Spotnose that I got from #Renickreptiles back in 2014 when she was a baby.

ارتباط بیماری های لثه و بیماری های مرگبار #کلیوی
تحقیقات انجام شده در دانشگاه بیرمنگام انگلستان نشان میدهد
بیمارانی که علاوه بر بیماری مزمن کلیوی از بیماری های شدید #لثه هم رنج میبرند،خطر بیشتری برای مرگ نسبت به افراد با لثه های سالم دارند.
تیم تحقیقاتی 13734از داوطلبان شرکت دراین برنامه را آنالیز کردند. آنها یافتند 6%از این داوطلبان مبتلا به بیماری مزمن کلیوی بودند.
سپس محققان به ارزیابی رابطه بین التهاب لثه و مرگ ومیر بیمارانی که مبتلا به بیماری مزمن کلیوی پرداخته و نتیجه را با رابطه ی بین مرگ و میر وسایر فاکتورهای موثربربیماران مبتلا به بیماری مزمن کلیوی مقایسه کردند.
بعد از این مقایسه محققان دریافتند نرخ مرگ ومیر در به سبب وجود هرفاکتور موثری بجز التهاب لثه در بیماران مبتلا به بیماری مزمن کلیوی 32% بوده اما این نرخ در مبتلیان به التهاب لثه به 41% رسیده است.
Hankering for a pint of #beer? There's a good chance it will be served up by one of these fine young gents. Dustin Owen Cordray is our #taproom manager and will oversee the #foodtruck schedule. Make sure you let him know about the best food trucks in #Cbus. Evan Hudgens will have dual roles, assisting in the taproom and helping run our #lab, where we will focus on #qualitycontrol and growing #yeast. He is finishing up a degree in #genetics and we're so glad he's focused on using that #knowledge on something important - like amazing #craftbeer. These guys have been integral to getting us to our #GrandOpening on February 2. Dustin and Evan, thanks for your hard work and patience. #Cheers! #followthemoth
Steven Lee's artwork helps illuminate new research from the @whiteheadinstitute. Introns are parts of DNA that don’t code for proteins and that cells usually break down quickly. They get snipped out and thrown away like a deleted scene from a film reel—as the illustration suggests. But David Bartel's lab, led by Jeff Morgan with Institute Member Gerald Fink, have now found unusual introns in yeast that last for a long time—and go on to have crucial roles in the cell in regulating growth. This surprising finding could change our view of introns and their functions. Visit the link in our profile to learn more. .
The beauty of self management!
DNA FACT 11:
The DNA in every cell of human body is damaged 1,000 to 1 million times every single day. Luckily our body has an elaborate system of repairing those damaged DNAs constantly. When the repairing mechanism fails events like cellular death or cancer formation takes place.
Love what our bodies can do! 🧬
Starting next week I will be one of the artists sketching concepts for how to storytell the life of a giraff at @malmomuseer.
A 4m tall moral dilemma - a pregnant giraffe female, whose fetus now resides in a glass jar. After being shot in Africa in early 1900s to “protect” farm land and then brought to Sweden to be examined for scientific purposes.
My proposal will relate the fate of the giraffe to advances in biotech / genetic sequencing - the design of babies for desirable traits, augmenting the human body, and the ethical implications of the emergence of a new human-ish species. I rarely meet people in Scandinavia discussing these life changing technologies. Hopefully it will be controversial enough to provoke emotions and start a debate. Fingers crossed🤞🏼
Ping me if you want to brainstorm 🦒

DON ENRIQUE | ¡Semen disponible!
No es muy común encontrar semen disponible en Argentina de la raza Belted Galloway y es por eso que decidimos continuar haciendo nuestro aporte a la ganadería nacional poniendo a disposición de nuestros clientes esta gran opción en esta raza tan particular. La Belted Galloway es una raza que se destaca por poseer atributos de mucha blandura de engorde, animales de mucha rusticidad y buena aptitud materna.
Don Enrique proviene de un rodeo bien comercial que se encuentra en la zona de 9 de Julio, provincia de Bs As, que hace varios años crían esta raza. Hijo de Gerardo, un toro que hizo excelente trabajo en la raza, Don Enrique impresiona por ser muy moderado, de muchísima capacidad ruminal, profundo, camina muy bien y de muy buenas características raciales.
Sin dudas una excelente opción para aquellos clientes que estén detrás de esta exótica raza. #beltedgalloway#genetica#genetics#juandebernardi#juandebernardisrl

For the first time, researchers have successfully used CRISPR-Cas9 to limit the impact of parasitic worms responsible for schistosomiasis and for liver fluke infection, which can cause a diverse spectrum of human disease including bile duct cancer.
"These neglected tropical diseases affect more than a quarter of a billion people primarily living in Southeast Asia, sub-Saharan Africa, and Latin America," said Brindley, PhD, professor of microbiology, immunology, and tropical medicine at the GW School of Medicine and Health Sciences.
"Our research also showed that CRISPR-Cas9 can be adapted to study helminth parasites, which are a major public health problem in tropical climates."
"As we work to better understand how these parasites invade and damage our bodies through this new technology, we will find new ideas for treatment and disease control." [credit: George Washington University, EurekAlert!]🌐
