I’ve seen this photograph very frequently on tumblr and Facebook, always with the simple caption, “Ghost Heart”. What exactly is a ghost heart?
More than 3,200 people are on the waiting list for a heart transplant in the United States. Some won’t survive the wait. Last year, 340 died before a new heart was found.The solution: Take a pig heart, soak it in an ingredient commonly found in shampoo and wash away the cells until you’re left with a protein scaffold that is to a heart what two-by-four framing is to a house.Then inject that ghost heart, as it’s called, with hundreds of millions of blood or bone-marrow stem cells from a person who needs a heart transplant, place it in a bioreactor - a box with artificial lungs and tubes that pump oxygen and blood into it - and wait as the ghost heart begins to mature into a new, beating human heart.Doris Taylor, director of regenerative medicine research at the Texas Heart Institute at St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital in Houston, has been working on this— first using rat hearts, then pig hearts and human hearts - for years.The process is called decellularization and it is a tissue engineering technique designed to strip out the cells from a donor organ, leaving nothing but connective tissue that used to hold the cells in place. This scaffold of connective tissue - called a “ghost organ” for its pale and almost translucent appearance - can then be reseeded with a patient’s own cells, with the goal of regenerating an organ that can be transplanted into the patient without fear of tissue rejection.This ghost heart is ready to be injected with a transplant recipient’s stem cells so a new heart - one that won’t be rejected - can be grown.(Source)

This is the coolest fucking thing ever. Science, man. Fucking science. Shit completely blows me away.

Hey! There’s a cool thing happening. ABC is making a pilot for a new sitcom called Far East Orlando and it’s only the second primetime network show featuring an Asian American cast, after Margaret Cho’s show All-American Girl which aired for only one season 20 years ago. This is really encouraging to see and I’m definitely gonna watch it.

people better watch the fuck out of this show

When this shit comes out, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, my Asian people, can we NOT get overly sensitive about the tiniest things being culturally inaccurate? and can we PLEASE not get offended by minuscule details and try to over analyze everything??? I loved All-American Girl, and even though I was super young when I watched it, I knew how important it was for Asian Americans. That show ended up failing, and it had a lot to do with Asians getting upset over dumb shit like a Japanese actor playing a Korean girl’s dad or the art on the walls and just stupid shit like that. It’s TV, there will be inaccuracies, and there will be a lot of Asian jokes, but let’s just take a deep breath and enjoy that fact that we are comin up!!! 


That’s Asian Jim!!!

The truth is that the more intimately you know someone, the more clearly you’ll see their flaws. That’s just the way it is. This is why marriages fail, why children are abandoned, why friendships don’t last. You might think you love someone until you see the way they act when they’re out of money or under pressure or hungry, for goodness’ sake. Love is something different. Love is choosing to serve someone and be with someone in spite of their filthy heart. Love is patient and kind, love is deliberate. Love is hard. Love is pain and sacrifice, it’s seeing the darkness in another person and defying the impulse to jump ship.
