#Solstice #Sunrise at the Barrow - a meditation on time, what litte, we know of #AngloSaxon "#Litha", and on what #livinghistory #history and #archaeology is truly "for". 🧵 Image
Very early yesterday morning members Æd and AlexP travelled to @SoultonHall @SacredStonesLtd Soulton Long Barrow to experience a unique moment in the solar calendar which, though concerned with the reckoning of time, is essentially universal and #timeless. 1/32
The Midsummer Solstice has always been a significant moment in the year, across many cultures, as far back as deep #prehistory. In Britain our landscape is dotted with #stoneage #neolithic and #bronzeage #prehistoric monuments which bear witness to this. 2/32 Image

Come promesso, oggi parliamo delle molte cose dette da #MoniOvadia, persona degnissima, contro la quale non ho nulla, che interviene molto circa #Russia e #Ucraina e che dovrebbe documentarsi meglio, perché molte cose che dice sono imprecise e parziali.
vediamo insieme perché
la sua pessima opinione sull'informazione italiana, in parte fondata, non gli impedisce però di presenziare giornalmente a trasmissioni come #lariachetira, dove esprime opinioni su cose che conosce evidentemente in parte.
ad esempio parla dei curdi:
1) le armi ai #curdi le abbiamo giustamente mandate, dal 2014 al 2018, USA, Germania, Italia, Svezia hanno armato i curdi dell'YPG, proprio quelli aggrediti da #Erdogan
Non mi ricordo di nessuno che dicesse che questo avrebbe "allungato la guerra".

Le 4 juin 1832, c'est une journée de #chasse pour Darwin ! Debout à 4 heures du matin, il rejoint un vieux prêtre fortuné et son valet noir. En route vers la maison de campagne de cet ancien favori de la cour impériale du Brésil. #VoyageDarwinBeagle
Je vous avais déjà raconté la passion de jeunesse de #Darwin pour la chasse. Rien d'étonnant que dans son journal de bord, cette partie de chasse s'étale sur de nombreux paragraphes !
"Me suis levé à 4 heures pour aller chasser : la personne qui garde les chiens est un prêtre et un doyen. —la meute ne comprend que cinq chiens, leurs noms, Trumpeta, Mimosa, Clariena, Dorena & Champaigna". Darwin appréciait énormément les chiens, comme le confirme cet extrait.

Après la randonnée, passons à la #plongée pour voir si l'évolution ne serait pas le meilleur des processus d'#optimisation. Pas de généralisation"la nature, c'est mieux", les formules "dame nature", "à voulu", autre joyeuseté ne seront donc que des tournures poétiques. #DarwinWin Hammer shark skull by x-ray
Les #sphyrnidae (ou requins marteaux) sont une famille #poisson qui, vous le savez peut-être déjà, a l'originalité de ne pas être profilé comme les autres. Une tête plate, comme d'autre #requin, mais large formant un T caractéristique.
Les biologistes nous affirment que cette forme permet un meilleur #odorat et les yeux aux extrémités du T une meilleure #vue. Je traduis à ma façon :

estalla al contacto con su objetivo

Desde el fondo del #mar, quien la ha lanzado desafía al bañista

Sonríe para la foto. Amaga con tragarse la camara

Después, se va. Ágil y veloz. Como llegó

Alors puisqu’on nous bassine avec LA solution ultime qu’est la #vaccination, j’ai décidé de faire un petit #Thread sur une notion toute simple magistralement démontrée par #Darwin. Pourtant, déjà à l’époque, la sélection naturelle fut largement dénigrée, particulièrement... 1/12
dans la communauté scientifique. Donc voici quelques explications pour les nuls, que même #Macron devrait arriver à comprendre.
Un agriculteur a un champ de blé et il s’aperçois un jour qu’il est envahi par des ravageurs. Pas de panique, il sort les bidons de pesticides...2/12
et va faire la peau à ces sales bestioles. Et pour faire bonne mesure, il met l’ultradose. Victoire ! Le produit miracle éradique 96% de la vermine.
Malheureusement les 4% restant de bestioles, qui étaient très minoritaires dans la population des ravageurs, 3/12

Can data science overcome quantitative finance in terms of employment and salary?
Well, I think you are asking a relevant question.

It can be explained using a Social Darwinian Perspective.
First, the Simple answer =>

YES =>
Quantitative Finance will get absorbed into Data Sciences and Machine Learning Areas as a sub-field.

WHY?

LOS VOLCANES DE OLOT Y CHARLES LYELL

Uno de los lugares más especiales de la #geología peninsular, la zona #volcánica de #Olot (#Garrotxa, #Girona), recibió en el verano de 1830 la visita de uno de los grandes referentes de la #geología moderna (va #hilo👇).

#geosites #geology
1- Pues sí, quizá no se trate de los más espectaculares del mundo, pero ¿cuántas ciudades conocéis cuyo casco urbano se extiendan a los pies de tres #volcanes? #Lyell debió considerarlo también notorio y llegado el momento quiso comprobarlo en persona.
2- #CharlesLyell (1797-1875) nació precisamente en #Escocia el mismo año en que moría otro gran geólogo de la época, el escocés #JamesHutton. Una curiosa coincidencia, como la existente entre #Galileo (1564-1642) y #Newton (1642-1727). Casualidades…!

1/ 🧵🎥 Chronic Pain

#Pain comes in all shapes & sizes. Let’s explore how we process pain. Watch & Listen to what Anderson Cooper tells Stephen Colbert about #grief and #suffering: “You can’t have happiness without having loss and suffering.”
2/ My lucid & kind patient (pic w written perm) uses scalding water as a coping mechanism for abdominal pain from pancreatitis. He wants to share his rationale.

#MedTwitter #ChronicPain #nurse
3/ Before I share what he told me, I first want to make my mindset as his #physician clear: My first job is to believe in him. Then to understand him. Then to devise a plan to help him.

HILO sobre POR QUÉ LA EVOLUCIÓN ES REAL:

Llevaba un tiempo queriendo hacer un hilillo, y qué mejor que mostrando pruebas y argumentos para que podáis rebatir a los testigos de Jehová que llaman a vuestra puerta.

Let's gooo!
La evolución parece obvia ahora, pero sin embargo, hace un tiempo esto no era tan fácil de ver.
Para ver esta evolución, necesitábamos ver a las #especies cambiar con nuestros propios ojos, y eso era tremendamente difícil.
Para nuestra percepción, las especies son estáticas y no cambian con el tiempo, o al menos eso nos parece...😬 Los únicos organismos que podemos ver realmente "evolucionar" en vida son microscópicos, y lo que realmente cambia no es su aspecto (que también), si no su #ADN.

Ppl coming at me like "you don't understand about CRISPR." Perhaps. But you're talking to someone who traveled to Tierra del Fuego to be closer to #Darwin. Wrote a sci-fi novel on genetics with #PeterSinger and #JamesWatson as characters. Just pubbed: disabilityvisibilityproject.com/2020/10/06/a-v…
This is behind a paywall but maybe @APublicSpace wld make it public since we're in a CRISPR moment? Megan! Brigid! Consider making public? "A Valentine to Darwin" apublicspace.org/magazine/detai…

"Alas! A scientific man ought to have no wishes, no affections - a mere heart of stone"
-Charles Darwin, to TH Huxley, 1857.

#Darwin is admitting to a mistaken understanding that he wanted to be true, but is then quick to cast aside when given strong evidence by a colleague. Image
I have never sought to elevate Darwin above what he actually was: an English biologist with broad interests & one very keen insight.

In reading his letters, my admiration has always grown, never diminished. He was honest, humble, and fully committed to the scientific endeavor. Image
Even his struggle with slavery and the English brand of racism show someone who saw genuine humanity in everyone, and felt empathy for the suffering of others. Image

A 10 años del #Terremoto2010 ocurrido en el Centro de #Chile, no tan solo cambió nuestra geografía, sino que fue objeto de estudio, avance #científico y #conocimiento en #sismología de terremotos.

En conmemoración del #megaterremoto, va el ➡️ #megaHILO 🇨🇱 sobre el #27F
Aunque ... ¿Qué sabíamos antes de este terremoto? ➡️ durante dos campañas de mediciones GPS entre 1996-1999, ya se conocía q entre #Concepción-#Constitución la región estaba madura para q ocurriera un gran sismo.
¡El último había ocurrido en 1835!, el famoso terremoto de #Darwin
Así, un grupo del @Dgf_uchile mostró que en esa zona habrían movimientos de 4 cm/año hacia el Este ➡️ nos acercábamos poco a poco a Argentina.
Miren las flechas apuntando hacia la derecha, son 13 estaciones GPS que se estaban moviendo en esa dirección, hasta #Santiago se movía!

1/6: There’s much about this article I like. But I take issue with the framing of these revelations about collaborative behavior as “leaving the Darwinian consensus behind.”

via @Slate #prosocial #collaboration #cooperation #evolution

slate.com/technology/202…
2/6: #Cooperation and #competition are both evolutionary adaptive strategies – which one is primarily in play at a given level of selection depends largely on whether within group or among group selection forces are dominant at that level.
3/6: And the answer to that is influenced by host of contextual factors, complicated by the multitude of overlapping nested hierarchies of life on this planet (including humans).

One can also make the argument that #Darwin recognized the importance of group...

3/9: his closeness to nature, that inspired his vision of the tree of life and the mechanistic details of evolution. It’s also what led him to the realization that humans aren’t separate from the natural world.
