> Second-line immunotherapy should be offered to patients with severe disease.
This "offered" sounds very odd in Russian, since the disease implies that the patient may be unconscious (encephalitis)
So I'll translate it as "perform"
I don't know how else to put it.

@M.A.R. That was a quote from Leon Trotsky, being enthused on how communism will transform people into better beings.

@CowperKettle In the U.S. patients usually have someone designated to make health decisions for them if they are unconscious or unable to make their own decisions. So it doesn’t seem so odd over here.

@tchrist Hmm she does sound a tad dramatic.
And self important, perhaps?
What about the big movement of authentic performance?
Historically informed performance (also referred to as period performance, authentic performance, or HIP) is an approach to the performance of classical music, which aims to be faithful to the approach, manner and style of the musical era in which a work was originally conceived. It is based on two key aspects: the application of the stylistic and technical aspects of performance, known as performance practice; and the use of period instruments which may be reproductions of historical instruments that were in use at the time of the original composition, and which usually have different timbre and...
This is not some niche thing.

Bomba CyberBoobs, a Chechen War veteran and a drag queen, sang the Russian Anthem in a club, waving the rainbow flag. A legal case has been opened, he will go to court for that.

Hmm.
Gay clubs are still open?
 
@Cerberus Yes, amazingly
@Cerberus And there's even a nudust beach on a local lake, still operating
I visited it once
 
@Cerberus An opera singer, dramatic?!!
 
@CowperKettle In theory, those may not be considered "propaganda", right.
@CowperKettle Very cool, Africa?
@CowperKettle Hmm is it a general nude beach, or is it for gays?
We have one in the city, but I think it is visited by everyone.
Not specifically gays.
 
You can have original instruments and still have singers who don't use bel canto.
 
@tchrist Yeah, I was choqued.

@Cerberus Nude beaches are always corporal not general. :)

I was wondering why there was no e.
 
That would be why.
 
@Cerberus Oh, just a general nude beach

Dendrosenecio is a genus of flowering plants in the sunflower family. It is a segregate of Senecio, in which it formed the subgenus Dendrosenecio. Its members, the giant groundsels, are native to the higher altitude zones of ten mountain groups in equatorial East Africa, where they form a conspicuous element of the flora. == Description == They have a giant rosette habit, with a terminal leaf rosette at the apex of a stout woody stem. When they bloom, the flowers form a large terminal inflorescence. Concomitantly, two to four lateral branches are normally initiated. As a result, old plants have...
 
@CowperKettle Did you expect nude beaches to disappear?
