"I tend to be cynical about a lot of things, but Maya Angelou is somebody that no matter how much I pick her apart, she still has integrity. She was a victim of incest and rape, and she worked as a stripper. And now she’s a literary icon and Nobel Laureate. It goes to show that life is cumulative, and you can’t devalue any type of experience."

Tailored 3D printed skin will fit right in with your own flesh →
We’re all created unique, and soon our 3D printed skin grafts will reflect that.
Researchers at the University of Liverpool, U.K. are taking the first step toward individualized, natural looking 3D printed skin. It’s a daunting undertaking, since each person’s skin has a unique smattering of freckles, wrinkles and veins coursing through it. But the project’s leader, Dr. Sophie Wuerger, has high hopes.
Dr. Wuerger and her group are working on a system which will tailor-print skin to match individual patients. To do this, the team is first developing a 3D scanning camera which will construct 3D images of a patient’s skin in varying light levels. The data from these scans will then be used to print patient-specific skin grafts.
"You must make a decision that you are going to move on. It won’t happen automatically. You will have to rise up and say, ‘I don’t care how hard this is, I don’t care how disappointed I am, I’m not going to let this get the best of me. I’m moving on with my life."
"Never are voices so beautiful as on a winter’s evening, when dusk almost hides the body, and they seem to issue from nothingness with a note of intimacy seldom heard by day."
