I have made some changes to make the site more secure and easier to use. First of all, I added CSRF forms to the Like, Follow and Cancel buttons so those are more secure now. I also added jQuery to make the like buttons keep you on the same page when you press them, instead of redirecting to a new page. This makes the experience smoother and wasn't too tricky to accomplish. I have posted the code I used below, which simply loops through all of the like form elements on the page, prevents the default (redirect), toggles the button class to change the color, and changes the text/icon. After this, it submits the form without redirecting the page. Try liking a post to see how it works!

Scientists Write Guide for Creating Mouse-Human Embryos Last year, scientists at the University of Buffalo demonstrated a process able to produce mature human cells in a mouse embryo. They have now documented the process for creating chimeric mouse-human embryos and published a detailed description allowing other labs to replicate the process. This ability to produce mature human cells in a living organism is invaluable to research in the use of stem cells to treat disease in humans. These mature cells are produced by converting the stem cells into a less developed state in order for the cells to co-develop. This has been done before, but now the procedure has been published in Nature Protocols after the significant interest generated by the project led to an invitation to publish. The research will allow more scientists to use this technology as a platform for studying human diseases. As the research develops, it will help us move toward a better human model system to study any condition. It will spur more discoveries and applications that could lead to a new understanding of human biology and medicine. The researchers add that a better understanding of how human cells develop in chimera may enable the generation of human cells in artificial systems and fundamentally change how diseases are treated. Supporters of the work included NYSTEM and the Buffalo Blue Sky Initiative.

Another photo from the hike to Baker Lake This is an awesome place to camp! And there are bear safes so it's easy to keep food safe during the night. We saw deer at this lake too, it was an awesome place to experience nature and the wildlife of Washington.

This is a photo from Baker Lake Mount Baker is in the background of this beautiful lake a short hike up from the road. This is a beautiful place, great for packrafting.

This is a photo from a hike in Washington. I'm forgetting where all these hikes are so I am just posting the photos!

This is my new profile photo. I meant to upload more photos over the last few weeks but I have been busy, I'm still going to post more photos though. I wanted to post showcasing my new dreads. I did them myself and I think they are looking pretty awesome already.
