I’ve got you under my skin. First on my list of stocking stuffers would be a one month supply of Androderm, the new testosterone patch from SmithKline Beecham. Cleared by the FDA in late September and available now, this brand new transdermal system can be applied to any fleshy part of the body.
As a community, we should demand a proper investigation, whatever form that takes. And once we have the facts, it is our responsibility to draw some hard conclusions. But do not cheapen our democracy by trying a man in the newspapers. Indeed, scientists have found that slathering such DNA fragments onto UV exposed hairless mice thwarts skin cancer.The investigators speculate that the DNA bits mimic chromosome damage in the skin cells that pick them up, and thereby tell the cells to boost their DNA repair activity. “We think we’ve tapped into a very important signaling pathway,” says Barbara Gilchrest of Boston University School of Medicine.When ultraviolet light hits an unprotected skin cell, it can damage the cell’s DNA. That may lead to a long lasting mutation, if the cell doesn’t quickly repair the molecular lesions.Tanning is another way the skin protects its cells from the sun: The pigment melanin helps skin cells more safely absorb ultraviolet radiation.In 1994, Gilchrest and her colleagues reported that applying a specific tiny snippet of DNA to human skin ceils or the skin of guinea pigs induces a tanning response.
If you haven yet perused the Alphonse Berber Gallery on Bancroft Way (you know, the one that replaced that boba place or whatever), now the time. While we wouldn want to meet anybody with last names like those either, the place is free, a manageable size and conveniently located on the edge of campus. Last night the folks at AB teamed up with some UC Berkeley graduate students to showcase the exhibit and Sustainability.
This was a design y holiday with other designers. But the glasses started to get a lot of attention. I thought it was maybe something I should develop, so when I got back to my studio, I started working on it.. Two thoughts come to mind. Leave her a note that says you would appreciate it if she would be quiet between 11 PM and 7 AM, so that you can get some sleep. The second thing you might want to think of doing is switching your living room with your bedroom so that you don’t hear her as much.
It was a problem identified early in 2020, again to mitigate the return to school before a coronavirus vaccine was available. But most schools did little or nothing in the past year to improve ventilation, and it is more likely that we finally return to school before any substantive changes are made to the thousands of schools that remain shuttered. The absence of new ventilation systems has not held back the majority of schools that have opened up to some degree without disruption.
