What you really see when you climb a mountain with your child – dobré čítanie aj pre tých, ktorí ešte nemajú deti

I tried a little more sweetness with my daughter but she only grew more stubborn. I looked at her then and was suddenly done. I sank beside her and stared into the middle distance. To the onlooker it would have seemed angelic and patient, but it wasn’t. I was thinking about how I was going to throw my daughter off the side of the mountain. And how good it was going to feel.

I thought a lot of angry things until eventually, I realised something. Staring out at the distance I saw how beautiful and expansive the view was. If I was to be forced to sit and think somewhere this wasn’t so bad. Maybe some of the inflexibility here was mine, not hers.

Zuzina mi poslala toto video (ďakujem) práve, keď som dumala nad tým ako si nachystať talk o feminizme, ktorý mám onedlho pre 10-14 ročné decká… veci sa niekedy stávajú v zaujímavých súhrach…

7 biggest problems facing science

Scientists often learn more from studies that fail. But failed studies can mean career death. So instead, they’re incentivized to generate positive results they can publish.

zomrel Elie Wieseljeho prejav pri preberaní Nobelovej ceny za mier (1986)

And then I explained to him how naive we were, that the world did know and remain silent. And that is why I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented. Sometimes we must interfere. When human lives are endangered, when human dignity is in jeopardy, national borders and sensitivities become irrelevant. Wherever men or women are persecuted because of their race, religion, or political views, that place must – at that moment – become the center of the universe.

analýza seba samého – Stephen Wolfram, zakladateľ Wolfram|Alpha, analyzuje dáta, ktoré o sebe nazbieral; fascinujúce

One day I’m sure everyone will routinely collect all sorts of data about themselves. But because I’ve been interested in data for a very long time, I started doing this long ago. I actually assumed lots of other people were doing it too, but apparently they were not. And so now I have what is probably one of the world’s largest collections of personal data.

už nechcem byť feministka

Most of all, I am tired of knowing. Knowing that my eyes have been opened, and that what has been seen cannot be unseen. I am tired of knowing it, when I see something that is wrong. I am tired of knowing that only speaking out can change it. I am tired of knowing exactly how hard and scary it can be to do so.  I am tired of knowing that if I am not careful, the fight will eat up my hope and strength, and leave me only with bitterness. I am tired of knowing that I can never turn back to not knowing. I am tired of knowing that despite my fears and exhaustion, I am a feminist.

dvaja HIV pacienti po transplantácii bez vírusu. Mohla by to byť cesta k liečbe?

One patient is HIV-free two years later, and the other is seemingly uninfected three-and-a-half years later.
“They still have no detectable HIV DNA in their T-cells,” Kuritzkes said. In fact, doctors can’t find any trace of HIV in their bodies — not in their blood plasma, not when they grow cells in the lab dishes, not by the most sensitive tests.
Can the patients be told they are cured?
“We’re being very careful not to do that,” Kuritzkes said.
