Canadian and U.S. researchers' new approach to fighting AIDS: "Treating HIV/AIDS with a combination of antiviral drugs and
chemotherapy seems to destroy both the circulating virus and immune
cells in which the virus hides, a team of Canadian and U.S. researchers
has found. In Sunday's online issue of the journal Nature Medicine, Dr.
Rafick-Pierre Sékaly of the University of Montreal and his colleagues
report finding cells where HIV hides from existing treatments. Anti-AIDS therapies known as highly active anti-retroviral
treatments, or HAART, target the virus's replication process but have
been hampered by these reservoirs of immune system cells hiding the
virus."

Cell phone leads police to gay man's killer. Likely an internet hook-up gone wrong: "Officials said they believe the stabbing occurred after Fermaintt
visited Pecora's apartment and then hailed a cab to go to the Bronx,
according to city police. But once in the cab, police said, Fermaintt
explained to the driver that he did not have cash and offered a watch
and a cell phone to pay for the ride. When Fermaintt left the cab, he left the phone on the backseat, where
the driver later found it and saw a worried text message that was from
Pecora's sister." NY1 report.

    I recognized those fuzzy pink naked suits immediately. A contemporary art article with a picture of it has been hanging in the drawing room at my university for a few years now. Forgot the artist’s name though.

    If you think that’s “plagiarizing”, then have you seen the Jennifer Lopez movie “The Cell”? Every single scene is stolen from contemporary art.

  2. doc holliday says

    Robert Wone mentioned in the NYT story above was as far as anyone can tell NOT gay, but the three housemates in whose home he was killed are.

  3. b says

    Robert Wone was not gay, or at least had a wife and made no claim to be gay. The people whose house he was staying in when he was killed were gay.

  4. Paul R says

    I don’t think anyone is suggesting, or ever has suggested, that Robert Wone was gay. But two of his three suspected killers are prominent gays, and the third is gay too. Also, that story ran weeks ago, and the author explained then why it was online: length, content (including some fairly graphic sexual information), the fact that some editors felt it was a dated story, etc.

    It’s definitely a case that I hope is resolved soon.

  5. nate says

    Robert Wone was not gay. He was a straight, married man who was college friends with a gay man. Wone had made plans days before to spend a late night in D.C. and had arranged to stay over at his friend’s home to catch up.

    Wone was drugged, raped, and then murdered.

    Andy,

    You should correct this mistake. One of the stereotypes that still persists is that straight man could never be friends with a gay man unless that straight man is actually gay. There has never been any proof that Wone was gay or bi.
