Killer Mike is absolutely on top of his shit throughout the entire album, but I’m sitting here listening to “Reagan”, and I feel like my insides are being shredded to bits. It really pisses me off when people denounce rap music as being all about mistreating women or drinking champagne or using Kanye West as the exception to the rule. Mike speaks with such conviction, such anger on this track, and I can’t help but feel angry and upset and hopeless, too. Please; four sweaty boys with guitars got nothing on this.
Amazing video of a killer T cell of the immune system attacking a cancer cell.
Professor Gillian Griffiths:“Cells of the immune system protect the body against pathogens. If cells in our bodies are infected by viruses, or become cancerous, then killer cells of the immune system identify and destroy the affected cells. Cytotoxic T cells are very precise and efficient killers. They are able to destroy infected or cancerous cells, without destroying healthy cells surrounding them. The Wellcome Trust funded laboratory of Professor Gillian Griffiths, at the Cambridge Institute for Medical Research, investigates just how this is accomplished. By understanding how this works, we can develop ways to control killer cells. This will allow us to find ways to improve cancer therapies, and ameliorate autoimmune diseases caused when killer cells run amok and attack healthy cells in our bodies.”
