Powerful portraits of the Liberians who beat Ebola 

To help humanize the overwhelming statistics, Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer and senior staff photographer at Getty Images, John Moore, visited an Ebola treatment center of the organization, Doctors Without Borders in Paynesville, Liberia. At the treatment center, survivors spoke about the brothers, sisters, husbands and wives they lost due to the disease. They also spoke of recovery, stigmas they continue to face in their villages and renewed hope.

As a 19-year-old sophomore at Stanford, Elizabeth Holmes decided to transform diagnostic medicine so she dropped out of college and used her tuition money to start her own company, Theranos. Ten years later, Holmes, pictured here holding a micro-vial, is on the cutting edge of medical technology — her new blood testing method allows hundreds of tests to be run using only a few drops of blood. And, Holmes’ methods are cheaper, faster, more accurate, and less invasive than conventional methods which often require a separate vial of blood for every test.As Holmes told Wired.com earlier this year, “I started this company because I wanted to spend my life changing our health care system. When someone you love gets really sick, most of the time when you find out, it’s too late to be able to do something about it. It’s heartbreaking… We wanted to make actionable health information accessible to people everywhere at the time it matters most. That means two things: being able to detect conditions in time to do something about them and providing access to information that can empower people to improve their lives.”

This would be a REALLY good time for solidarity and showing support for fellow nonbinary persons.

Fun fact about American health care: if I ever need an organ transplant, I’ll somehow have to hide my autism, depression, and anxiety from the doctors, or else I’ll be disqualified under ideas about quality of life. It’s really great to know how valued disabled and neurodivergent lives are.

This is a very important issue, and has been one of the policy focuses we’ve had in the past year or so. There are some states trying to push through non-discrimination policies for transplants. For example, Paul’s Law in PA would, if passed, prevent mental and developmental disabilities from being used as a reason to deny a transplant. (Paul was a young autistic adult who was denied a heart transplant on the basis of being autistic.)

But it will take a lot of support to get these passed and in the meantime so many of us are at risk. 

Thank you for this post, sanityscraps.

I knew I missed something in London!

Hoxton Street Monster Supplies exists.

Neil! Have you seen THIS? 

I love this! It’s inspired by 826, which I worked for and ADORE. Definitely on my list of places to visit next time I’m in London.

THEY DO MAIL ORDER NOW?! 

I completely forgot about trying to visit there when we were in London over the summer. BRB, must order A Vague Sense of Unease. I bet Clovis Devilbunny wants some things from there, too.

So, does “inspired by 826” mean this is also a charity organization that offers free tutoring services to kids? Hmm… I went ahead and checked up on it and yes they are! Cool.
