Painted faces

I don’t wear makeup.

Actually, I haven’t worn makeup for a while – I gave away everything I owned about 2 months ago – I just felt funny telling anyone, and then I felt funny for feeling funny about telling anyone. It reminds me of this article.

I haven’t been wearing makeup during the day for at least 8 years, but now I no longer wear it to dress up either. I watched the movie America the Beautiful and it really made me realize that makeup is silly. All the women (and men) are just competing against each other, each trying to outdo the rest with more and more makeup. If I start wearing makeup in high school, then you will feel pressured to start in junior high. If I wear makeup on special occasions, then you’ll need to start wearing it every day.

And then there is just the overall impression that you aren’t pretty enough. No matter what. You must wear makeup in order to fit in. Everyone does it. Shouldn’t we just appreciate people as they are?

I think you can be beautiful without putting anything on your face. and there are so many benefits – it feels nicer, you don’t have to worry about it getting messed up, your skin stays cleaner, and you don’t have to spend all this time and effort on something that isn’t worth it.

Don’t get me wrong – I’m still vain in many ways. I like to do my hair, and put on nice clothes. It will take time to get past the social pressure, but I just think everyone would be better off with less makeup in the world. And if the makeup succeeds… it’s just going to get messed up anyway.

I know some people will never give up the stuff, but I’ve stopped, and it isn’t due to lack of caring, lack of knowledge, or any other lack that I do not wear makeup. I’ve made a conscious decision.

AquaMS is a company serving the environment, since 2002 we have specialized in the continuous measurement of water quality. AquaMS markets a range of continuous analysers with high precision. Our equipment allows to measure in-situ some essential paramaters in the water management. The morphology of the parasite is described and a comparison is made with other Babesia which have been described from the domestic cat and wild felids.

There was a sense of awe in the whispers. Mandela had already spent more than a decade in the prison on Robben Island. Among the oppressed, his messianic role strengthened with each year that passed. But his name was also whispered in fear, for it was literally illegal to display his photograph, which gives one a sense of how much the white apartheid government feared him. Our arrival in South Africa in 1976 began my one-year commitment to serve as an assistant pastor of a multinational congregation in Johannesburg. I learned much in that year, but perhaps the most profound lesson was the palpable fear on the part of the whole population that apartheid would someday end in a bloodbath of epic proportions. Areas of interest include protein modification, metal-protein interactions, ion channels, biological NMR, design and control of protein structure and function, enzymology, and drug screening, to name a few. Organic Chemistry: Projects include the development of novel synthetic methods and the application of these methods to the synthesis of biologically relevant targets, such as natural products and pharmaceuticals. At the heart of this program is a desire to gain a fundamental understanding of reaction mechanisms, catalysis and biological function. Areas of interest include metal catalysis, catalyst design, reactive intermediates, heterocycles, electrochemistry, combinatorial synthesis, natural products (including alkaloids, polyketides and terpenoids), medicinal chemistry, structure-based drug design, reaction mechanisms and computational studies..

The aldopentose structures drawn above are all diastereomers. A more selective term, epimer, is used to designate diastereomers that differ in configuration at only one chiral center. The chiral centers in the preceding examples have all been different, one from another. In the case of 2,3-dihydroxybutanedioic acid, known as tartaric acid, the two chiral centers have the same four substituents and are equivalent. The main effort in treatment of acne is always to use all possible non-invasive means to treat affected skin and to keep the skin in a good condition.
