If you haven’t seen it in your news feed yet, take a few minutes from “interning” (we all know you found yourself here via social media) and get your weekend off to an inspiring start with this video, highlighting an amazing achievement by Penn doctors and CHOP. A cancer-stricken girl named Emma was saved by an experimental treatment in which she was purposely injected with HIV, and the heartwarming clip is going viral. Donna from Parks & Rec even tweeted it this morning, with the hashtag #Science. Word, Retta, science is incredible.
According to the Huffington Post, Denzel Washington was at Penn State’s Jordan Center last night to watch his son Malcom play in Penn’s first basketball game of the year. Says the HuffPo, “Malcolm did not play and his team lost to Penn State, 70-55.”
Denzel was like “Whaaaat?!” (see right).
Apparently no one at Penn State cared too much about him being there, which is hard to believe. Maybe they haven’t seen Remember the Titans? On that note, maybe Glen Miller should let Denzel talk to the team before the next game, see if he can’t get them playing like men out there.
Usually when we want to write about something cute, we have to go through the trouble of locating the cupcake truck. Not today, though! We stumbled upon this sign at a poster sale on Locust Walk, a few sections down from “Sexy.” Our only issues with an otherwise great category are as follows:
1. The suggestion that kids, animals and flowers are not inspiring. Tell that to someone who doesn’t have this poster hanging right next to this one.
2. The work of Lisa Frank was vastly underrepresented in the section. Then again, we did get there kind of late and those things go fast on college campuses.
