I just walked in on this scene. The lizard has been released back into the wild, minus its tail. It’s lucky my cat forgot how to be a predator.

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.

THIS IS HUGE

These Spiders Look Like They’re Covered In Mirrors 

This isn’t a stained-glass sculpture or piece of delicate jewelry – it’s a real live spider. These spiders, called mirror or sequined spiders, are all members of several different species of the thwaitesia genus, which features spiders with reflective silvery patches on their abdomen.

The scales look like solid pieces of mirror glued to the spider’s back, but they can actually change size depending on how threatened the spider feels. The reflective scales are composed of reflective guanine, which these and other spiders use to give themselves color.

Not much information is available about these wonderful spiders, but the dazzling specimens in these photos were photographed primarily in Australia and Singapore.

Incredibly Realistic Baby Animal Toys By Lee Cross 

Lee Cross, a talented sculptor from Alaska who also goes by Wood Splitter Lee, has mastered the craft of creating poseable plush animals that look convincingly life-like.

Lee starts with a poseable skeleton that she then wraps in stuffing, making it soft. Each is then covered with cloth and hand-decorated with synthetic fur and paint – no molds involved. Her works have sold in auctions on Ebay for anywhere from $185 to as much as $910.

ACS: Crime, Blow To Obamacare

After the NYPD killed father of six, Eric Garner, they released this statement:

“On Thursday, July 17, 2014 at approximately 1648 hours, police observed a 43-year-old male selling untaxed cigarettes in front of 202 Bay Street within the confines of the 120 Precinct. Upon attempting to arrest the suspect for the violation, the suspect went into cardiac arrest and was transported by EMS to Richmond University Medical Center where he was pronounced DOA. The Medical Examiner will determine the cause of death. The investigation is ongoing.”

Basically, they’re saying he had a heart attack. Yeah, looks like a heart attack, huh?
