Cryptocurrencies are classified as a subset of digital currencies and are also classified as a subset of alternative currencies and virtual currencies.

When you think of the Republican Party, what comes to mind? If you’re like many Americans, you may associate the GOP with racism, sexism, and general inequality. It’s a commonly pushed narrative by left-leaning media and academia, but as former Vanderbilt Professor of Political Science Carol Swain explains, the Republican Party was actually responsible for nearly every advancement for minorities and women in U.S. history—and remains the champion of equality to this day.

Bridging tumor moats with potent drug delivery particles

Bridging tumor moats with potent drug delivery particles
Despite herculean efforts, cancer remains a formidable disease, with each malignant subtype responding differently to therapeutics. One hurdle specific to treating solid tumors is a protective layer called an extracellular matrix that can prevent chemotherapeutic agents from penetrating the tumor’s core. Scientists now report results in ACS’ Chemistry of Materials showing that, by cloaking anti-cancer drugs in a specially designed particle, they could target and destroy tumor cells deep inside a malignant mass in vitro.

VIDEO: Trump orders CNN's grandstanding clown Jim Acosta out of Oval Office
Trump was actually pretty chill about it, and he didn’t take Acosta’s bait. He didn’t yell, and you have to listen rather closely to hear him say, “Out.”

Facebook banned conservative author Matt Margolis for advertising his book, The Scandalous Presidency of Barack Obama, in conservative groups (the ban is still active), and Twitter is under fire for “shadowbanning” conservatives and collecting sexual files on everyone. Seriously.

Facebook apparently isn’t done making itself look ridiculous. In the rush to get rid of “hate speech” and under the guise of making changes to its news feed, Facebook is making conservative groups disappear. Digiday reports:—More….
