“After the virus enters a human cell, our ribosomes attach to its RNA strands and glide down them like a roller coaster car running along a track. As the ribosomes pass over the genetic letters, they build proteins with corresponding structures. Scientists suspect that the loops of RNA may throw the roller coaster car off its track and then guide it to a spot thousands of positions away. Other loops force the ribosome to back up a bit and then move forward again. This little hiccup can cause the virus to make entirely different proteins from the same stretch of RNA.”

— Carl Zimmer, “The Coronavirus Unveiled

Some things I noticed 07/31/2020:
  1. “We will meet many obstacles on our way to Mars. But as humans, we’ll not give up. We will always persevere.”
  2. The one that we saw at Rizal (stadium) is unacceptable. That is negligence on the part of whoever organized it.
  3. the DA would indemnify the farm owner at P80 per head or a total of P3.09 million; migratory birds could be carriers
  4. How to deal with the never ending shit barrage of the human experience.
  5. I’m having more and more just apathy which feels really good.
  6. Mark Joseph Ola-a — Sepak Takraw
  7. Remake Doctor Who but spelt Hu.
  8. Allie SherlockShallow, I will Survive, Ain’t No Sunshine
  9. Reneé Dominique — At Last
  10. Free your mind
