It was lunch time in #Brazil on a Saturday in 1990 when I decided it was time to be born! I grew up in a large city in #SãoPaulo called #Guarulhos, which in Tupi (native language) means “eaters” or “big-bellied people”. Here’s the proof I am “Guarulhense”:

Our #family was not wealthy, but my parents made sure I had good #education, even if that meant sacrificing part of their own life. For that I will be forever #grateful. They made sure I learned how to #appreciate everything I had that money could not buy.

People Without Racial Prejudice Turned Out To Be Genetically Sick;

A Thread

Scientists have found that people who, in principle, have no racial prejudice, they turned out to be children with Williams syndrome.

Williams Syndrome;
Williams syndrome is a rare genetic disorder. It occurs in one child in twenty thousand newborns.

It is caused by the deletion of genetic material from a specific region of chromosome 7. The deleted region includes 26 to 28 genes, And since the body is left without several genes at once, the effect of such a defect is complex.

BREAKING: June 2020 was the worst June on record for Amazonian deforestation - 1034 km2 of #forests were lost. Bolsonaro has been in office for 18 months, during 9 of which we have seen record deforestation rates.
President #Bolsonaro took office in January 2019. Since then these are the months with record deforestation:
May 2019 (then surpassed by May 2020)
July 2019
Aug 2019
Set 2019
Nov 2019
Jan 2020
Feb 2020
June 2020

Data from the Brazilian Space Agency:…
45% of the area deforested between January 2019 - April 2020 has not yet burned. When adding this up with the area deforested in May 2020 (832 km2) and June 2020 (2034 km2) we can expect a *very* bad burning season to come.

100 million trees are so much more than the CO2 they absorb. 💪🏾 Each tree brings us closer to a different future – one we can all look forward to. Let's keep building it, let's #PlantChange. 🌳⏱

Sometimes activism means convincing your school, uni or workplace to switch to Ecosia. It’s time for businesses and organizations to #PlantChange, too.…

1/n. This, right here, is why I teach. No other reason. If you think race is a control variable, your racial theory is a hair to the left of essentialists. You are not loss though. You can be saved, resurrected, and/or reborn. Here’s what you need to do:
2/n. Read the works of @DorothyERoberts (Fatal Invention), @TukufuZuberi (Thicker...), and Joseph Graves, Jr. (Emperor’s New Clothes) will pull you out of the biological racism matrix. Then, will get your theory game going in the right direction.
3/n. Then, to improve the efficacy of your methodological theory, read Eduardo Bonilla-Silva’s and @TukufuZuberi’s White Logic, White Methods and both of John H. Stanfield, II’s Rethinking Race and Ethnicity in Research Methods volumes. Your design game will get strong.

Despite surge in cases & increased testing, trajectory of new deaths attributed to Covid-19 for India is lower compared to in #US, #UK, & #Brazil. 7-day rolling average of new deaths (per million), by number of days since 0.1 average deaths (per million) first recorded.

At the same time, the absolute number of cases per million is increasing at a lower trajectory in India. Testing has doubled in last month. Via 7-day rolling average of new cases (per million), by number of days since 0.1 average cases/million first recorded. Via @FT
2 of N
Inference:- Good news
1. Lockdown postponed the surge in cases

2. Lower rate of deaths can be ascribed to enhanced treatment capabilities, younger age demographics & protection due to cross infection.

3. Increasing the testing and treatment capacity is working well

Florida and the U.S. both set new records for #COVID cases today. Higher than March, higher than April. The highest it’s been. Yet I have a *select* few followers from South Florida who call me a fear-mongerer for sharing these facts. Let’s review their arguments:

Hospitalizations are down, they insist

Truly grateful to announce I have been promoted to Associate Professor at @MonashBiol 😊

I would like to thank my team & former team members, my collaborators, mentors, colleagues for the support and feedback @BBM_Wong and @RobertB_R, & my boss @OBryanMoira for the push to apply
Inspired by @jane_bourke_phd I would like to share how I got here because I look up to many & constantly think I am not doing 'well' enough. What I learned over the years is that on paper things look much more glamorous than they are (I call it the Instagram of academia) 1/
I came from a developing country (#Brazil) where research is not valued and there is little $ available. But I had amazing lecturers and teachers, and amazing opportunities to do research since I was an undergrad. This resulted in 5 papers prior to my PhD & helped me a lot 2/

Thread: #Mexico, #Brazil, #India, #Pakistan, #Chile, #Colombia are experiencing alarming #coronavirus outbreaks and rapid ACCELERATION in cases & deaths.

On June 21, @DrEricDing tweeted the concerning statement below about Mexico.

On June 22, Dr. Ellie Murray of Boston University posted a response, calling @DrEricDing's tweet "bad and misleading".

A number of other Infectious Disease Epidemiologists (ID Epis) joined Dr. Murray to criticize @DrEricDing, mostly with disrespectful tweets.

@DrEricDing was the first epidemiologist who correctly broke the news about the #coronavirus pandemic on 2020 Jan 20. He received a similar backlash from some ID Epis for making minor inaccurate statements, and was called an "alarmist" & a "fear-monger".
