This Is The War On Drugs (via “The House I Live In”)

A call to national conscience, the activist documentary “The House I Live In” is persuasively urgent. Directed with heart by Eugene Jarecki, the movie is an insistently personal and political look at the war on drugs and its thousands of casualties, including those serving hard time for minor offenses. It is, Mr. Jarecki asserts — as he sifts through the data, weighs the evidence and checks in with those on both sides of the law — a war that has led to mass incarcerations characterized by profound racial disparities and that has created another front in the civil rights movement. (via NY Times)

Here’s the thing, going into this film I KNEW our criminal justice system was messed up, but I didn’t expect to see politicians, judges and corrections officers chiming in and demanding that the system change. THAT was incredibly eye opening for me and all the more reason that more people need to see this film. If you haven’t seen it already, “The House I Live In” is currently available for rent and instant streaming on Netflix. And if you don’t have Netflix, you’re in luck because April is officially the last month I’m able to offer my followers a free month subscription through netflix.com/chescaleigh

My art assignment #4 - Never seen, Never will. [The assignment]

For almost two years now, I have been working in a biochemistry lab at the Hebrew university in Jerusalem.
I research a protein called p38. It’s a protein that is present in practically every cell in my body and regulates the cell’s stress response. I work with this protein every day. I know the genes that encodes it. I know the sequence of amino acids that it contains. there are even some speculations to what it looks like in certain cases and situations. But I have never actually seen it.
I use different methods purify this protein and experiment with it - I stain it with colors I can see, I mark it with radioactive isotopes, I use different chemicals to bind it and expose it to film, that is blackened in response. But all those methods are just pointing to the obvious fact - In order to do the research, I have to ‘see the invisible’.  Which can be both frustrating and magical at the same time.

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
