Today I'm gonna tell you about a few things that I value enough to donate some cash.
And you know what we have, together? That's right.
...and now the fire marshall and OLCC are mandating major renovations in order for the place to stay in business. We've seen multiple shows in the last few months have to either cancel, postpone, chop down their capacity in a major (and monetarily debilitating) way, and - bless their hearts - Refuge has persisted, even to the point of offering shows for free rather than cancel, in order to bend to the will of The Codes. Please help keep this place a thriving part of the community!
I first heard about this contraceptive a few months, maybe a year ago, in terms of an Indian version (thus non-FDA approved), currently in advanced clinical trials, called RISUG. It's a polymer-based contraceptive, meaning it is injected into the vas deferens where it just kinda hangs out, chillin' all cool and calm and blockin' stuff so it doesn't, you know, end up being babies.
The Parsemus Foundation is now doing their own trials on their version called Vasalgel, and it is super exciting to think that by late 2015, women may not have to shoot themselves up with hormones or shove pieces of metal into their body cavities to prevent pregnancies.
I highly recommend signing up for the newsletter, because you learn really fascinating stuff about how the trials are going, and how they are done! It's fun for the sex-lovin', no-baby-wantin' scientist in all of us! Donate today!
