what kind of a world do i live in
GUYS YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW WONDERFUL THIS IS
Parkinson’s is a degenerative disease and while it’s progress can be slowed down, it currently doesn’t have a cure. People suffering from Parkinson’s will experience a gradual loss of coordination and ability to perform even the most basic of every day tasks, including feeding themselves.
This fucking spoon is HUGEfor them. Look at that gif of the man just trying to eat with the regular spoon and compare it to the liftware device. It’s NOT just a spoon, by the way, it comes with a fork as well, for example.
I found the website for the project where you can purchase a spoon for someone you know/love and even possibly donate money to help someone out who can’t afford it themselves right: HERE.
At the very least, please spread this for all the people who have Parkinson’s or loved ones with Parkinson’s.
You’ll help them take part of their life back.
PEOPLE HAVE BEEN TAKING OUT THE ABOVE INFORMATION AND JUST REBLOGGING THE PICTURE. IF YOU CAN REBLOG THE PICTURE, YOU CAN REBLOG THE LINK TO ACTUALLY HELP PEOPLE. THANKS.
This is seriously amazing. Such a simple solution that would greatly improve the quality of life for those living with Parkinson’s.
"Can you re-enact your reaction to being cast in a Marvel movie?" [x]
What were your inspirations, especially since [Tauriel] is a completely created character; what brought you to bring that power because there were a lot of ways you could have played that role that would have been along the lines of what we usually see for a girl in an action movie where she’s not in the adventure, she’s the prize…?
Well, on my planet, there’s a legend about people like you. It’s called Footloose. And in it, a great hero, named Kevin Bacon, teaches an entire city full of people with sticks up their butts that dancing, well, it’s the greatest thing there is.
We’re just like Kevin Bacon!

More than 600 people have died in a recent outbreak of the Ebola virus raging through Africa— that even includes doctors caring for patients with the disease.
Still, there is no known cure for Ebola, and no preventative vaccine that can protect people from contracting the virus. So what will it take to get rid of this devastating disease?
Three renowned doctors joined HuffPost Live on Monday to weigh in on all the facts about the Ebola outbreak, from how the disease spreads to how it might be stopped.
"We do have several vaccines that have been extremely successful in protecting laboratory animals, including non-human primates, against the Ebola virus," Dr. Thomas W. Geisbert, professor of microbiology and immunology at the University of Texas, told host Josh Zepps. But what about developing a vaccine for humans? "It’s a very long regulatory process. From the time to develop a vaccine for animals in a lab to protecting humans… it’s really just a lot of regulatory hurdles and red tape."
That’s not all. Dr. Stephen Morse, an epidemiologist at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health, opened up about how economic factors come into play too.
"The vaccine companies of course have to be driven by the economic considerations," he said. "It’s a terrible thing to say, but they have to be convinced that it’s economically… worthwhile to provide the vaccine."
It’s not about saving lives, it’s about making money.
