Stem Cells Inducing Remission for Multiple Sclerosis

HDIT/HCT is a new medical approach that is going to benefit the patients and make the work of the neurologist like Dr Shiva Vasishta easier. The treatment will induce remission of the Multiple Sclerosis.

Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune disease where your immune system attacks the Central Nervous System. If this happens, you will experience chronic pain, weakness and speech difficult. The condition will worsen as the years go by and can lead to disability.

With the new medical condition, neurologists will be in a position to reduce the long-term remission. The patients will get a high dose of immunosuppressive therapy, and this will be followed by a stem transplant using the patient’s blood-forming cells.

There was a five-year trial on the treatment done on different patients. 69% of the patients in the trial period reported a decrease in MS. They also said they did not experience a progression of disability or a relapse

The study was done by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease, and it indicated that this treatment could produce better results than the long term conditions. Even though the current research that was done indicate that the treatment is safe, more research is still needed to check on the associated benefits and risks if any.

“Justice League Dark” Animated and in Live Action

Warner Bros. has released an extended clip for the Justice League Dark animated film in conjunction with PlayStation.

 

The six-minute clip ironically does not include any members of the titular magical team, but instead focuses on the normal Justice League characters as they confront a supernatural threat. It involves people in multiple cities seeing their fellow civilians as monsters and attacking them violently; perhaps most creepy is a woman who nearly kills her baby before Batman intervenes.

 

The actual “Dark” team consists of heroes such as the magician Zatanna, sorcerous detective John Constantine, ghost Deadman and plant spirit Swamp Thing. In the comics, they unite together to face supernatural threats that normal superheroes have a hard time dealing with.

 

Justice League Dark is part of the DC Animated Movie Universe. So far, its films have focused mainly on the Justice League and Batfamily, though it branched out a bit last year with Justice League vs. Teen Titans. As such, this focus on the lesser known “Dark” characters may lead to a more expanded universe.

 

DC and Warner Bros. seem determined to make this particular team more popular; they have also announced vague plans for a Justice League Dark film in its live-action DC Extended Universe, which is now in a state of flux after its current movies received less than glowing reviews from both critics and fans. The animated Justice League Dark may be testing the waters for a more costly counterpart.

 

Political Social Media Campaigns Emerge Against the Trump Administration

The first international conflict caused by United States President Donald Trump has prompted social media netizens to launch a social media campaign to boycott American products in Mexico.

 

On the same day President Trump announced his intention to build a wall along the southern border with Mexico, a social media campaign under the hash tag #AdiosStarbucks emerged on Twitter and Facebook. The gist of the campaign is to prompt social media followers in Mexico to stop consuming products sold by iconic American brands such as Starbucks Coffee, Home Depot and Walmart.

 

Shortly after the announcement of the Executive Order signed by the American President, his Mexican counterpart canceled a meeting scheduled for late January about the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement, which Trump believes is not good for the U.S.

 

Responding to questions from American journalists, the White House indicated that Trump is convinced that he can force Mexico to pay for construction of the controversial border wall, which all Members of Congress representing the State of Texas are opposed to. Trump then stated that he would impose a 20 percent tax or tariff on Mexican products coming across the border, an idea that quickly backfired when it became clear that American consumers would end up paying considerably more for these products. A statement from the White House indicates that the tax was just a preliminary idea.

 

The social media campaign in Mexico is initially having a positive effect for local brands such as Cielito Querido Café, a national chain of coffee shops that competes against Starbucks.

Facebook Introduces Stories

You may or may not have noticed a decline in personal posts on Facebook. We all have friends that share, and possibly overshare, but overall personal posts have declined. What does that mean for the social media giant? It’s time to mix it up.

 

To increase personal sharing, Facebook plans to duplicate Snapchat Stories, threads made of photos and videos which disappear in twenty-four hours. After successfully piloting the method on Instagram, Facebook plans to debut the new feature in Ireland.

 

It appears that social media is becoming more visual. At one point, users would text posts to a number off their flip phones to broadcast on Facebook. Thanks to smartphones and apps, it’s now easier than ever to tweet, post, stream, and share. Facebook calls this the “camera in your pocket.

 

Individuals and businesses can already take advantage of Facebook Live, a way of live-streaming videos. Some share their adventures, while others share product demonstrations.

 

For businesses, the stories feature may provide an opportunity to demonstrate their humanity while promoting products and services. For small businesses and self-employed individuals, these benefits are crucial to success.

 

Of course, we’ve also seen a number of important social campaigns playing out on Facebook in the past year. There was the Ice Bucket Challenge, Standing with Standing Rock, and of course, Election 2016. It’s fair to anticipate increased involvement in these movements and others as Facebook moves toward an audio/visual future, and it could be the answer to a growing distrust in mainstream media.

 

Which is the Origin of Kabbalah?

There may be no one knowing the source of Kabbalah. It is of the ancient times, and it got lost in time, mythology and space. It is just like other marvels that exist in the world today such as Tarot and chess. Those who are experienced Kabbalists have a belief that the basics of the spiritual system initially began on the banks of Nile River in Egypt and that happened in the past. It is said that Moses is the one who was responsible for the transformation of the wisdom and knowledge in Exodus. He did this so that he can build a society that was modern and enlightened.

Afterward, the Jewish throughout the centuries continued to practice Kabbalah. It was practiced as a branch of Judaism. The aim was to get the questions that were not addressed by Torah regulations and practices answered. At the time, there was orthodox that was deeply rooted in the society, and they would accuse the Kabbalists false thoroughly. That explains why the Kabbalist did their training in secret and later would present their teachings in the form of esoteric Bible interpretations. As you may know from history, there are spiritual and esoteric sects that have always been hunted by the mainstream religions. Such include Muslims and some Christians.

There is the traditional creation story of Kabbalah. The story relates to Adam and says that he received Kabbalah wisdom after he fell from Eden. He received the manual that explained to him how to be able to go back to heaven, and that is the Kabbalah. Afterward, Adam passed the knowledge and wisdom to his sons, and it continued to be passed from generation to generations. Finally, the understanding reached Adam and some Kabbalists have a belief that Abraham was the one responsible for writing the first Kabbalist book which is called Safer Yetzirah or the formation book.

It is believed that Moses later received the Kabbalah Centre on Mount Sinai. It is believed he received it directly from God. There was then oral transmission from one generation to other thanks to the brilliant leaders who could not be deterred by the community who had negative thoughts about them.

Support of End Citizens United Mission Revolutionizes Reform Efforts

In March 2015 there was a revolution of change created by End Citizens United organization.

The non-profit organization will be the first to combat campaign finance reform since the U.S. Supreme Court 5-4 ruling. The ruling on endcitizensunited.org was in direct contrast to the bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2003. The court’s decision broadens the laws governing contributions received by politicians.

The mission for End Citizens United is to have that ruling overturned.

End Citizens United formed an alliance with U.S. voters to bring change to the political system by assuring there will be campaign finance reform. At the core of their mission is to bring transparency and accountability to the political process. They have set out to stop corporations and billionaires from infiltrating an already rigged and imbalanced system.

Supporters of the mission are enormous in size and in voice. U.S. citizens came together principally to make sure democracy is upheld in America. The approximately 325,000 supporters on endcitizensunited.org that began in 2015 will grow to four million this year. It is believed that 78% of Americans believe the Supreme Court’s decision should be overturned. The support received is completely bipartisan.

The task of bringing change to the political system on Facebook has built momentum and the past election season has only fueled the continued support.

In order to transform the system, End Citizens United has aligned its mission of reform to putting an end to electing politicians that do not support campaign finance reform. It is an essential part of their agenda for changing the landscape of the political process.

End Citizens United is setting the bar high for the organization by maintaining their ethical and integrity standards with how they have reached out to the supporters to attain their goal. End Citizens United believes that it has received an out-pouring of continuous support of their mission because U.S. citizens have seen it as the reality-check that is needed in the political system.

End Citizens United describes what has occurred in the political systems as a “fundamental erosion of our democracy.” They’ve lead a steadfast charge against a system they believe is completely vulnerable to the highest bidder for a politician. They want to put an end to the unrestricted flow of money into elections. The organization is determined in helping citizens stand up to politicians by continuing the movement.

Donations for the organization continue to surpass expectations for any grass roots organization of its kind. The initial pledged donations reached in the millions for End Citizens United and it is highly expected to reach $30 million this year.

The efforts by End Citizens United will not only bring reform, but it will have shown what supporters can accomplish when the cause is greater for many, than the power is for a few.

“The Flash” Film Script Being Rewritten

The Flash is set to be the sixth movie in the DC Extended Universe, released sometime in 2018. The franchise is already off to a rocky start with its first three films (Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad) having limited success, and this story, starring Ezra Miller as the super-fast superhero Barry Allen, ironically keeps on stalling when it should be gaining traction.

 

The film has already been through two directors: Seth Grahame-Smith and Rick Famuyiwa, who also worked together to write the script. Variety is now reporting that Warner Bros. is getting it redone by Joby Harold.

 

It’s hard to judge what this means from Harold’s limited credentials, but 2007’s Awake, which he wrote and directed, was successful. He has also written King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and Robin Hood, which are set for release this year and next, respectively.

 

Little is known about the script as it stands, except that Famuyiwa’s version also included the superhero Cyborg.

 

Miller already had brief cameos as the Flash in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. He is set to appear in this year’s Justice League prior to his own film. He also plays Credence Barebone in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them; some speculate that production of its sequel may push The Flash back even further.

 

Scary text messages sent by ex-girlfriends

 

Sending text messages can be a lot of fun. It is a time to send memes, jokes and share other secrets. When sending a message you get one opportunity. Once you hit that send button the message is gone and it is up to the receiver to decode the message. Messages can end up being funny or scary if there is a typo in the message or the person receiving messages did not get the intended response.

Sometimes after there is an argument in a relationship there can be some scary messages being sent back and forth. Here are some examples of crazy ex-girlfriends sending crazy texts:

Girl: “I miss you. I was wrong.”
Guy: “This is an auto response. The guy you are trying to reach spent three months after the break-up praying to receive this text, followed by three months accepting it would never come. The six months after that were spent dating other girls. It worked. You are too late. and he blocked you.”

This was the ultimate savage response by the guy or could be his new girl answering for him. It is scary because you have no idea how the crazy ex will retaliate next.

Girl: “I need to tell you something.”
Boy: “what’s up babe”
Girl: “I broke your Xbox.”
Boy: “What!??”
Girl: “JK I am cheating on you.”
Boy: “So my Xbox is ok, right?”

This is scary because the girl is unstable and will do anything to get your attention. She also sounds untrustworthy and violent.  She has more crazy twists than the Orlando roller coaster accident.

Will Sasha Survive Actor’s “Star Trek” Role?

Good news for Sonequa Martin-Green: she’s going to be playing “Number One,” the protagonist of the new Star Trek: Discovery series. However, fans wonder if this is bad news for her Walking Dead character Sasha Williams—can the actress realistically maintain roles in both shows at once?

 

Walking Dead showrunner Scott Gimple seems to think so.

 

“Sonequa Martin-Green can do anything. I’ve seen her battle a horde of walkers [zombies] this year while simultaneously battling a stomach flu that would have had most people crying in the dirt,” he quipped. “She can fulfill the duties of a Lieutenant Commander on a Constitution-class starship whilst battling walkers, Saviors, and whatever gets in Sasha’s way.”

 

He notes that he has had to work around actors’ schedules before without resorting to killing their characters off, such as with Corey Hawkins, who plays Heath in the recent seasons while also starring in 24: Legacy.

 

Still, The Walking Dead is a show where just about any character can die, so Sasha’s fans should never be too sure of her safety.

 

Star Trek: Discovery comes after the franchise has long been dormant on television, though the most recent reboot movies have been successful. It will air on CBS All Access, a video-on-demand streaming service. Unusually, Martin-Green’s character is the protagonist but not the captain of the titular ship.

 

The Walking Dead‘s seventh season resumes on AMC February 12, 2017.
