Shingles, also known as zoster or herpes zoster, is a painful skin rash caused by the same virus responsible for chicken pox: the varicella zoster virus. Even if you had chicken pox in the past, you can still contract shingles. That because the chicken pox virus remains in the body, lying dormant in the roots of nerves, and can reactivate many years later.
Corporations like to be in control, and because corporations influence government, government inevitably bends toward the monopolistic desires of the corporations. So while it is illegal for you and I to grow hemp, the pharmaceutical companies are busy patenting their own branded version of THC to be approved by the FDA as a high priced medicine. (Because THC is powerful medicine, of course.).
In a word, no forcible conversions, no massacres, no destruction of temples. Just that Hinduism had created an exploitative, casteist society. Islam was egalitarian. Don multiclass? Go straight paladin or sorcerer. Look at the ranger subclasses and 1/3 casters if you want to add a little magic into the character but still be more melee or damage based fighting. Human variant rogue (level 10) or fighter (level 8) gets 1 feat + 3 ASI/Feats.
Moving through the show, I identify two sections: the first an overt exploration of the bureaucratic political realities of the borderland and how dwellers on both sides navigate them. Saucedo’s painting is in this section of the show. The border wall is a bifurcating presence in the painting, and the strain of the man’s journey is evident in his posture and stark positioning.
My project explores the ways in which religious pluralism manifests itself in Asheville, North Carolina, with a focus on Buddhist Centers in the area. Through the lens of Buddhist centers in the area, I aim to find in what ways pluralism in Asheville reflects pluralism in America more broadly and in what ways Asheville is unique in its pluralist interactions. Furthermore, I contextualize the practices and demographics of Buddhism in Asheville within trends in American Buddhism more broadly, exploring how Asheville aligns with or deviates from these trends.My project explores the ways in which religious pluralism manifests itself in Asheville, North Carolina, with a focus on Buddhist Centers in the area.
There is a growing recognition that current preclinical models do not reflect the tumor microenvironment in cellular, biological, and biophysical content and this may have a profound effect on drug efficacy testing, especially in the era of molecular targeted agents. Here, we describe a method to directly embed low passage patient tumor “derived tissue into basement membrane extract, ensuring a low proportion of cell death to anoikis and growth complementation by coculture with patient derived cancer associated fibroblasts (CAF). A range of solid tumors proved amenable to growth and pharmacologic testing in this 3D assay.
