Lightbulb Pol Io

February 23 – The first mass vaccination of children against polio begins in Pittsburgh, United States..It infects human cells by binding to an immunoglobulin-like receptor, CD155, (also known as the poliovirus receptor (PVR) on the cell surface..Poliovirus is structurally similar to other human enteroviruses (coxsackieviruses, echoviruses, and rhinoviruses), which also use immunoglobulin-like molecules to recognize and enter host cells..Poliovirus is an enterovirus. Infection occurs via the fecal–oral route, meaning that one ingests the virus and viral replication occurs in the alimentary tract.. Virus is shed in the feces of infected individuals.. CD155 is found (outside of laboratories) only on the cells of humans, higher primates, and Old World monkeys.. Poliovirus is however strictly a human pathogen, and does not naturally infect any other species (although chimpanzees and Old World monkeys can be experimentally infected)...Within this domain 37 amino acids are responsible for binding the virus...

Rhinoceros Sutra (Pāli: Khaggavisāna-sutta; Sanskrit: Khaḍgaviṣāṇa Gāthā; Gāndhārī: Khargaviṣana-sutra) is a very early Buddhist text advocating the merit of solitary asceticism for pursuing enlightenment (as opposed to practicing as a householder or in a community of monks or nuns)..The sutra, which consists of a series of verses which discuss both the perils of community life and the benefits of solitude, and almost all of which end with the admonition that seekers should wander alone like rhinoceros... and how I love you talking monkeys for this... know more about war and treachery of the spirit than any angel..I can lay you out and fill your mouth with your mother's feces...
