#Riboflavin (#vitamin B2) versus #covid19?

A series of molecular docking studies (modeling of biological actions by computer) indicate that plain old cheap old perfectly-safe old RIBOFLAVIN inhibits critical #SARS_CoV2 #proteases -- thus acting as potential #antiviral compound.
By analogy: viral protease inhibitors are the basis of anti-#HIV #ART (anti-retroviral therapy) - drugs used widely to maintain disease-free, #AIDS-free life, albeit at a cost: $25-50K per year. Plus headache, nausea, diarrhea, fatigue, and a dozen other crappy side effects.
Riboflavin, if it proves to be effective in humans, or even if it doesn't, would cost perhaps $25 (twenty five, not 25 thousand) per year, with no headaches, nausea or the rest of that rot. Just so you know.
There is only slight chance that the definitive human studies will be

I'd like to share what this collage means to me.

starting from the top: u'uhig (birds)
birds are central to akimel o'otham culture especially song culture. in this collage i used the oriole, red-winged blackbird, house finch, and the blue-throated hummingbird. the birds are
positioned at the top as i see them emerging from the altar, the space below them that can represent a mountain or earth. on the altar, the dresser on which everything is placed on or above, to the left are depictions of my diné great grandmother's rug and my mom's hopi

2/ When Carter removed the 2nd gilded wooden coffin from the first he was puzzled by the weight. Opening the 2nd coffin he was astounded to find the 3rd coffin was of solid gold!

✨Hello! ✨

I've been given the all clear to post the art test that I did whilst applying for Blizzard, so thought I could use it as an opportunity to show how these things can go, what to expect, and how I approached it.

Here goes! 🧵

#gamedev #art #vfx #gameart #vfxartist
the brief was very simple and just asked me to make 'an explosion' that could fit in a Blizzard game world.

could have been anything really, so i started with researching WoW schools of magic for inspiration and settled on using "Arcane" and "Nature" as my guiding words. 🔮🌿
then i looked just lists of existing abilities in WoW to get an idea for their effects, and just randomly saw one called "Alter Time".

Without looking at what the effect actually did, I just used those words as a springboard to start concepting! 🎨

🚀 We are live! Here is the correct streaming link for all of today's discussions and performances, starting with a panel on complex time with David Krakauer, James Gleick, Ted Chiang, and David Wolpert in a few moments (measured linearly...):

#IPFest
"One of the ideas we had with #InterPlanetary was, 'What would it take to make science hedonistic? And instead of telling people to do it, you'd have to tell people to STOP doing it?"

- SFI President David Krakauer sets the tone for this weekend's celebrations
#IPFest Image
David Krakauer: "Do you have a favorite model or metaphor for #time?"

@JamesGleick: "You've already mentioned a river; that's everybody's favorite. Borges said time is a tiger. People talk about it as a thread. We ONLY talk about time in metaphors." Image

Bhawanrao 'Balasaheb' Pantpratinidhi (1868-1951) who ruled Aundh in #Maharashtra was an unusual king. His work at reforming criminals & convicts inspired V.Shantaram's acclaimed ‘Do Aankhen Barah Haath’ (1957). Balasaheb was born on 24 October 1868
#history #Marathi #films #art
Unlike rulers who tried to cling to power even when the end of British rule was evident, #BalasahebPantpratinidhi handed over the reins of the state to the people much earlier in an experiment inspired by #MahatmaGandhi. He also helped freedom fighters & revolutionaries.
In a sense, #BalasahebPantpratinidhi was among the reformist kings who tried to birth welfare states in colonial India. He was also associated with one of the most popular forms of exercises—the suryanamaskars.

1/ Today a double post for my Tutankhamun 100 day countdown. I had to miss yesterday. First off, the 3 large funerary beds shaped like animal gods. ****. #Egypt #Archaeology #Tutankhamun #history #Archaeology #Tutankhamen #Toutankhamon #Tutancâmon #Tutanchamun #توتعنخآمون Image
2/ The three tall "funerary beds" also called "funerary couches." They were made for the afterlife, not life. They are very tall, & would have been impractical for daily use #ancient #Tutankamón #ツタンカーメン #图坦卡蒙 #圖坦卡蒙 #Τουταγχαμών #тутанхамон #투탕카 Image
3/ Most Egyptian beds were quite short like several from Tutankhamun's tomb we covered earlier in the countdown such as this fine example covered with heavy sheet gold. #Mythology #Art #Gold #Egypt #Archaeology #AncientArt #History #Jewelry #Ancient #AncientEgypt #Egypt #Egypte Image

People get moved by stories, not facts. I'm sure you recall certain stories from your youth. Stories inspire action. Will listening to a story about Mahatma Gandhi motivate you to take action?

Heck yeah, we do! 🥳

A city that loses its artists & creatives loses its soul. We can't let that happen.

Toronto produces some of the world's most talented people & we love to see it. However, they're leaving at an alarming rate. #LetsFixIt

2/ What do Larry David, Alicia Keys, Tennessee Williams, Christian Slater, & Angela Lansbury have in common?

They lived at Manhattan Plaza, a no frills, low-income apartment building that required 70% of tenants to be practicing artists. We're reviving this idea with a twist.
3/ The number one issue we heard from early and mid-stage artists is the city is too expensive and they don't have space to practice their craft.

Any artist will tell you that without practice, they can't get to the next stage of their career.
