Maggie is an adventurer.
Maggie is the best woods cat I’ve ever had. She followed us for five miles in the wilderness. She stayed right with us the whole time. She had never been in the depths with us, and she enjoyed it sooo much! She frolicked around, on mossy logs, climbing on trees, and looking over cliff edges. Even climbing them. She’s my little hiking buddy. And, the sweetest cat I’ve ever known. I’m glad I have such a precious kitty in my life! She means the world to me! (:

Antibiotics are the go-to drugs for bacterial infections. They’re crucial for treating conditions from irritating ear infections to life-threatening tuberculosis. Although we have white blood cells (one shown in purple) to help defend us, which can ingest and kill bugs like Staphylococcus aureus (shown in yellow), we often need extra help. But, if antibiotics are used overzealously and in wrong situations, they can become ineffective. The bugs can develop resistance to antibiotics, adapting to live happily in their presence and leaving few options for treating serious infections like MRSA (multidrug- or methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus). In a quest to develop new antibiotics, scientists have discovered the transporter in the notoriously difficult to treat S. Aureus, which pumps out the toxins that cause us to feel ill. Using this discovery, drugs could now be designed to ‘plug’ the transporter, locking in the toxins, saving patients who may have had no other option.
