Researchers Successfully Eliminate HIV Virus In Human Cells
July 25th, 2014
A scientific first from Philadelphia, that could pave the way toward curing HIV. 
Instead of suppressing and treating HIV and AIDS, which is what currently happens, researchers have for the first time shown they’ve found a way to destroy the virus.
It might not look like a typical operating room, but in a lab at Temple’s Center for Neurovirology researchers are performing surgeries on genes.  Welcome to the front lines of genetic surgery. They’ve found a way to operate on DNA and destroy the AIDS virus.
“It’s an important finding because for the first time in laboratory setting we show that the virus can be eradicated from human culture, cell culture," said Dr. Kamel Khalili, who led the research team. They developed molecular tools that can hunt down and delete HIV in cells.
“Basically converting infected cells to un-infected cells and that is very important because the current therapy can not eliminate the virus from cells,” said Dr. Khalili.
Dr. Khalili showed a slide with a cell infected with HIV, highlighted in green. Then he showed another slide where the HIV is gone, the result of Temple’s gene surgery.
“We have a cure for HIV elimination. We have a system to eliminate HIV from the cells in the laboratory,” said Dr. Khalili.
Now the next step is to find a way to move the discovery from the lab into animals then people, the groundwork being set for curing HIV.
Thirty-three-million people have HIV. One million are in the United States. Every year 50,000 Americans contract the virus.

Willam & his husband Bruce :’)

I hope whoever saw an age diff and automatically thought it was something it wasnt will read this. He was dirt poor, fresh out of rehab and i was paying the rent (in the Valley- that’s where Cher got mugged in Clueless for those non-Angelenos) for the first year so DO NOT be saying he was ever a sugar daddy or i was with him for money. 
I was with him for the DICK. Biggest piece i’d ever seen on a white guy.
WILLAM
p.s. i love him too so lay off.

"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….

First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”

But here is what I think you should know.

You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.

You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.

You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).

You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.

In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.

In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”
