OOO Dear what’s going on here!!!!!
“The man received bone marrow from a donor who had natural resistance to HIV infection; this was due to a genetic profile which led to the CCR5 co-receptor being absent from his cells. The most common variety of HIV uses CCR5 as its ‘docking station’, attaching to it in order to enter and infect CD4 cells, and people with this mutation are almost completely protected against infection.”
I feel bad for the guy who is resistant….at what price to cure. If only we had stem cell research, we could make clones of that marrow and cure so many people!
So today I just got called by my work telling me that my work hours were significantly cut, and that the bulk of my hours would be every other week. It’s just hard going from a job where you’re working 35 hours a week to now a mere 17 hours a week. I don’t even know if I’ll be able to make that many hours now. Then the manager asks me if that’s okay, and I told them, “what do you expect me to say?”. Way to go work, I won’t name you due to maybe someone from there may read this. It’s just annoying how this place I work for doesn’t seem to care about me. I thought I could depend on them to bring a decent paycheck, but I guess there’s no one to depend on in this world. *sigh* Time to go job hunting and hopefully find an organization that values me.
