Tonight on #MitoMonday we briefly highlight the life and works of an extraordinary scientist who helped discover not one but two organelles, the late great Dr. Christian de Duve. #LateNightWithTheRutterLab #OrganellesRCool
Dr de Duve was born in 1917 near London, to Belgian parents who sought refuge there during WWI. The family returned to Belgium after the war. Dr. de Duve entered the medical school of @UCLouvain_be in 1934. He joined the lab of J.P. Bouckaert where he studied insulin. 2/
Interesting Fact #1: Dr. de Duve was drafted by the Belgian army during WWII and was captured by the Germans. Dr. de Duve, used his knowledge of German and Flemish to outwit the enemy and escape back home where he immediately returned to research. #BadAss 3/

The set is very red and gold and swirly. #Oscars2019
It wouldn't hurt my feelings to see Sam Elliott's mustache accept the award. #Oscars2019

The humble banana has a weird & fascinating history, which until recently was buried in the swamps of Papua New Guinea. 🍌🍌🍌

So as you asked, @LittleGwhizz , here’s the story in 6 tweets:

Modern 🍌 are the result of a chance hybrid of two wild species from totally different parts of SE Asia.

How? Who knows!

Like many inter-species hybrids, they are bigger than their parents and sterile. (Kinda like mules)

Hence why they are fleshy, tasty & not packed w seeds.
Ingenious humans noticed this. And even figured out that while this freaky hybrid was no longer capable of producing seeds, you can clone it by cleaving off basal shoots.

They spread cuttings from SE Asia in prehistory, presumably in dug out canoes, all the way to India. #Badass

"Les journalistes me harcèlent et harcèlent ma famille depuis des mois pour connaître la couleur des chaussettes que je mets le mercredi ou le jeudi." - Alexandre Benalla.
C'est marrant, ce n'est pas la question que je lui poserais spontanément. Et vous ?
(Là, c'est dur de live-tweeter la finesse du moment : Philippe Bas met, tout en rondeurs, une fessée déculottée à Benalla, lui expliquant qu'il n'a pas à choisir les questions auxquelles il peut répondre.)
En suivant cette audition, j'ai l'impression de m'entraîner pour, quand mes enfants seront ados, écouter leurs mielleux mythos pleins de mépris sans péter un câble.

Nous sommes le 26 janvier 1945 vers 14h00, dans la poche de Colmar, à côté de Holtzwihr et les 18 gars de la compagnie B du 15ème d’infanterie américain font face à une contre-attaque particulièrement musclée des boches. #Thread
Après dix minutes de pilonnage de l’artillerie allemande, ce sont pas moins de 6 Panzers qui chargent les ricains ; suivis de deux compagnies de la Wehrmacht entières. Autant dire que ça sent le roussi à plein nez.
C’est alors que le fraîchement nommé commandant de la compagnie B prend une décision pour le moins surprenante : il ordonne à ses hommes de se replier dans les bois et décide de rester seul pour accueillir les boches.

Here is why Cynthia Erivo, in particular, should not play Harriet Tubman.

TL; DR: There’s a troubling pattern of Cynthia repeatedly, deliberately, selectively *choosing* to not give respect to African-American heritage – the heritage of Harriet Tubman.
#HarrietDeservesBetter
Note: There’s an argument to be made against Africans/non-DOS Brits playing important African-American figures – & vice versa. Performance & perspective, where & how we take up space, larger economic & cultural issues at play.

Others have unpacked that; this thread won’t.
This thread is about why Cynthia Erivo should not play Harriet Tubman, “the Moses of her people” & a sacred African-American ancestor. It goes beyond Cynthia’s birthplace, accent, heritage & even her association with an ethnic bigot.

It rests on a pattern of behavior & choices.

Lui c'est Sam Dove, et vous ne le connaissez pas. Remarquez, il est chauffeur.
Chauffeur d'un des engins les plus #Badass au monde.
Quand Sam Dove conduit, il conduit debout. C'est sa version de Michel Berger. Osez vous moquer, mais il ne conduit pas très vite ses 2700 tonnes d'acier et de puissance.
A vide.
#Badass
Sam Dove est aux manettes d'un engin qui porte son propre poids, mais aussi une table de lancement, une tour de lancement... Et une fusée.
Un bel engin, quoi.

Quand Beaumarchais débarque à Londres, en ce mois d’avril 1775, il ne vient clairement pas faire du tourisme : d’une part, ses démêlés judiciaires lui donnent quelques raisons de s’éloigner mais surtout, il est en mission secrète pour Louis XVI. #Thread
Il faut dire ici qu’en plus de sa carrière littéraire, le Pierre-Augustin est aussi espion : depuis un an, il est agent du Secret du Roy, organisation ultraconfidentielle mise sur pied par Louis XV et qui n’avait de comptes à rendre qu’à lui-même.
Or, outre le Royaume et ledit service secret, Louis XVI a hérité de son prédécesseur d’un emmerdement de classe internationale qui, justement, se trouve à Londres : il s’agit de Charles Geneviève Louis Auguste André Timothée d'Éon de Beaumont — a.k.a. le Chevalier d’Éon.
