As a people dedicated to fighting injustice and advocating for the freedoms, access, and equity for all we can only dream to rest in the arms of the true bravery and resiliance embodied by this great man. Wishing you a very restful sleep and ascendance. We have lost a light and a gem of this generation. We now can only be thankful to have experienced you. We must now embody you and create your spirit within the generations to come. The fight won’t stop.
We honour you.

Portuguese designer Susana Soares has developed a device for detecting cancer and other serious diseases using trained bees. The bees are placed in a glass chamber into which the patient exhales; the bees fly into a smaller secondary chamber if they detect cancer.
Scientists have found that honey bees - Apis mellifera - have an extraordinary sense of smell that is more acute than that of a sniffer dog and can detect airborne molecules in the parts-per-trillion range.
Bees can be trained to detect specific chemical odours, including the biomarkers associated with diseases such as tuberculosis, lung, skin and pancreatic cancer.
