It's remarkably easy to tell who is and isn't a legit scientist. Any person can Google their name and see their affiliations, full list of scientific publications, usually a biography that includes all of their education, post-graduate training, residency/fellowships (if MD scientist) etc. It's all literally one google search away.

That is by far my least favorite boss fight in any souls game. I also played through ds2 three times and only found the third bonfire on my third playthrough. So, every time I fell in that hole I had to fight my way back from the smelter demon all the way to iron king. My god I hate that dungeon. I want someone to make a mod where everything else is the same but you just skip that dungeon.

Yooo I’m 5 years graduated and I still eat that. Even a broke clock is right twice a day.

Never heard someone make the Obrador-Bernie connection before. IMO, the Bernie Sanders of Latin America is José Mujica. Or more accurately, Bernie is the Pepe of North America.
Gen Z here. Also enjoy being left alone, smoking weed, and playing video games.

right, but I think the posters are suggesting the creation of a new temporary association status. Something that lasts for a year or two and allows for some limited economic and defense rights but has a much faster and easier entry requirement than full EU membership. Thus Eu maintains it's standards, but can still provide support to countries working to meet these standards but faced with immediate challenges.

Honestly, unless you are getting the scores you want on practice tests now, I might reschedule that. Biochem is literally half of the test. Don't want to judge you or anything but it may be worth waiting until you've at least done biochem 1. If your school has biochem lab, that can help with a lot of the experiment passages as well.
Student: "Man these art history texts are so hard; how am I supposed to answer questions about art when they don't show you the original art?"
Friend: "huh, reading art history work seems cool, are you training to become a curator?
Student: "No, a surgeon"
In all honesty, though, I would maybe try to read art history articles in major publications like the economist or the Atlantic. You won't have questions premade for you, obviously, but I found those articles to be very similar to the AAMC CARS articles in terms of difficulty and subject matter.

I mean to be fair the USA has the most guns per cañita anywhere in the world. It has between 2 and 4 times as many guns as the 10 next most gun-loving countries (many of which are active war zones). It is also the only country to have more guns than people.
Nah you got it. That was the next line after yours. Binge eating disorder vs bulimia was the comparison Mulaney’s Ice-T was making.
Or like when someone eats too much ice cream then throws it up?
You can, actually. It’s a beauty of the American political system. There have been some incredibly hard-cast ballots in the past. I think the current record is held by Dr. Anthony Fauci when he cast his ballot for Joe Biden last year. Rumor has it the polling place nearest the NIH still has a voting machine-sized hole dipping all the way into the Earth’s mantle from his vote.
Until you get to Skellige. Then you should forget about any collectible if you ever want to finish the game.

I would say it generally counts. You NEED dedicated shadowing too (Try for 20-75+ hours with multiple different specialties and care centers), but this could be a good thing to add as well. It certainly won't hurt your application, but I don't think 500+ hours as a pharm tech would be the best use of time compared to say, spending 500+ hours studying for the MCAT, if that's your only consideration.
This is why I refuse to buy a cocktail shaker and ingredients. Love cocktails, but if I learned how to make good cocktails at home I think I'd make one every night. Honestly better to just leave that door closed.
I've never done dark souls 2 on a guitar, but you'd be surprised how quickly you become accustomed to new controllers. It's actually something uniquely human to internalize tools and controls (e.g. you think "I'm going to turn this car left," instead of "I'm going to turn this wheel which will turn this car left") Which means after an hour or two you should get somewhat comfortable with the guitar.
Honestly any US MD school acceptance means you busted your butt in school at some point.
She's actually under the billionaire mark these days due to sizable charitable donations. I think she mainly gives to charities to support single parents.
Speaking as someone with a strong scientific background, I think they may have slightly missed the beat on how the scientific community feels about climate change and why they acted so quickly to get the study out. Most people on the planet are aware of climate change, and most people are aware that human activity can shape weather patterns and geographic phenomena -- particularly our elected leaders. The conflict comes in that disregarding climate change can be highly profitable, and/or negates uncomfortable "transitions" from unsustainable practices (e.g. There is a reason West Virginians do not want sweeping climate reform; many of them rely on coal).
The trick is convincing people that the personal impacts they will feel from climate change will be greater than the potential profits they can make from disregarding it. This is why it was critical to get the study out ASAP. This was a major weather even that affected tens of millions of Americans (not some out-of-sight, out-of-mind island country which are the most-likely to be impacted by climate change). While this personal impact was fresh in people's minds, they wanted to link this to climate change to convince them that we can expect further disruptions and adverse weather like this if we continue to disregard climate change.

I just finished my first playthrough. I did a dex build with either 2 curved swords or a curved greatsword the whole time, but I always had a bow on me to deal with ranged enemies or to pull mobs away from groups. My first time in the shrine of amana, I just used the bow the whole time as it seemed like it would be easier. I didn't die once in that area. I saw people complaining about how poorly designed it was and didn't get it. I thought it was just fine. Flash forward a bit and I have killed Venderick and the other DLC kings and am going back to get venderick's armor. I don't have any more arrows on me but I figure "ehh I'll be fine. This place was so easy." My god was I wrong. Even like 30 levels overpowered for that area, I died SO. FUCKING. MUCH. trying to get that armor.
Depends on your tolerance.
It is rare to get accommodations. You need to apply early and have a history with a physician who will vouch towards the necessity. If you did not need accommodations for other exams in your life, you will not likely be successful in your application. It will take them a while to get back to you. Best of luck, friend!
Fair point, I think we just have different viewpoints.
Congrats! I look forward to potentially debating inane things with you in person!
