ziel von #transplantationsgesetzt sei es, die situation der kranken zu verbessern.

It's weekend and it's the end of the month. The #markets are closed.

So there is the perfect time to analyze the #momentum & relative #strength of the markets.

This information is relevant for all #investors, but especially for #trend #followers 📈📈📈

#marketresearch

🧵
The #momentum of the markets are one of the most powerful forces in the evolution of the #asset #prices.

The #reversion to the mean is the opposite force, which is equally powerful. Momentum works on a short and medium term (up to 3 to 5 years).
There is a ton of academic research related to the momentum and the benefits of using it and relative strength. But presenting it this is not the purpose of this #thread.

Relative strength is actually a comparison between the #momentum of two or more #markets.

1 #BOU2022

Thank you and welcome – a wonderful honour to give this #BOU2022 #AlfredNewtonLecture talk. A sight for a curious naturalist: why is this warbler apparently so silly? Or, how does the cuckoo get away with this?

#ornithology
2 #BOU2022

The talk celebrates Alfred Newton, founder of the BOU in 1858, the year of Darwin and Wallace’s papers proposing the theory of natural selection. Newton was an immediate early fan.

#ornithology
3 #BOU2022

Newton’s paper in 1869 suggested that egg-colour variation in different host-races of Common Cuckoos was a result of natural selection. He coined the term “gentes” (singular “gens”) for these host-races

Me pidieron hilos sobre inmuno básica así que va lo básico de lo básico...

¿DE DÓNDE SALIÓ EL SISTEMA INMUNITARIO HUMANO? 🧐

Nuestro sistema de defensa es exquisitamente complejo, esta complejidad se desarrolló a lo largo de millones de años y continúa evolucionando

🧵👇🏼

1/19
Aclaración inicial: el ser humano moderno tiene por mucho 300mil años de existencia¹ (referencias al final del 🧵), menciono millones de años de evolución porque el sistema inmunitario no apareció con nosotros, sino con nuestros ancestros 🌍

2/19

#Evolution #ImmuneSystem
De hecho, la inmunidad adaptativa surgió hace aprox 400 millones de años con los placodermos²

En fin…definamos de manera general 2 conceptos: evolución y genes

La evolución biológica se refiere al cambio constante q presentan las distintas especies a lo largo del tiempo

#Impfpflicht OBSOLET! "HÖHERES Risiko für #Covid19 nach 2ter vs 1ter #Impfung bei Personen mit natürlicher Immunität nach #coronavirus Infektion!" Starkes Argument, da UNBEKANNTE ANZAHL GENESENER #Impfpflichtneindanke #NEINzurImpfpflichtab50 buff.ly/3BsTfOC @Radbruch_lab
Bei 39.766 Mitarbeitern der Cleveland Clinic, bereits durch eine vorherige Infektion oder Impfung geschützt, war eine Auffrischimpfung nach 6 Monaten mit signifikant geringeren COVID-19-Risiko verbunden. Nach #COVID19-Infektion brachte mehr als eine Impfdosis keinen Vorteil.
Bei Personen mit natürlicher Immunität war die Verabreichung von 2 im Vergleich zu 1 Dosis des Impfstoffs mit einem höheren Risiko für #COVID19 verbunden (HR, 1,54; 95 % KI, 1,21–1,97).

🕉 #WeekendWisdom - A beautiful story from #ShatpathaBrahmana about creation of different #animal species - #Prajapati #Brahma had created the #aquatics 🐠 #birds 🐦 & #reptiles 🐊 who reproduced by laying eggs. But many of them kept perishing from want of adequate food... 1/3
So #Brahma decided to give his next creations the means of survival by providing them breasts that could produce nutrition for the newborns.

By resorting to this milk the new species created by him continued to thrive and thus came #mammals including us! 🦧🐈🐕‍🦺🐅🐆🐏🧍‍♂️... 2/3
This story also shows us the concept of #evolution because we, the mammals, have appeared much after the older species that inhabited this planet!

For those wondering how the newest kid on the block, LY-CoV1404 (bebtelovimab) neutralizes variants so well, including #SARSCoV2 #Omicron BA.1.1 and BA.2? The answer is – pure luck! This antibody is like Neo dodging bullets in the matrix…🍀🍀🍀
The binding mode is very similar to imdevimab (REGN10987) but bebtelovimab avoids major imdevimab resistance caused by the N440K Omicron mutation! It also avoids other mutations. Think social distancing of antibodies from mutations...
Can use this 📺 to scroll through and see #Omicron BA.1.1 #SARSCoV2 mutations and where #antibodies bind... Sotrovimab/S309, Casirivimab/REGN10933, Imdevimab/REGN10987, Evusheld (AZD8895/tixa, AZD1061/cilga), Bam (LY-CoV555), Ete (LY-CoV016), and bebtelovimab (LY-CoV1404)

On #DarwinDay it is wonderful to anticipate the fast progress coming to psychiatry as it discovers its missing foundation in evolutionary biology.
@isemph @HumBehEvoSoc @AllenFrancesMD @mentaldaily_com @Got_Anxiety @sse_evolution @eshb @RiadhAbed1 @PFinuras @APAPsychiatric
The day between #DarwinDay and #ValentinesDay gives an opportunity to respond to questions about
what #evolution offers to #psychiatry and
why I think it will bring fast progress.
Painful emotions, especially anxiety & depression, are by far the most common reasons people seek help. An evolutionary perspective recognizes emotions as special states shaped by natural selection along with control systems that express them in situations where they are useful.

Some people do bad things, but, they don't look bad.
They are others who do good, but, they don't look good.
It's how we are intrinsically made, that shapes our personality, defines our intentions and describes our actions.
Our #DNA is the repository that informs our evolution.
Ask the maker why he made it?
Not from the doer.
We human beings are at the receiving end, always!!
We are what we are!
We all are made according to a certain specification list.
If we try to mutate ourselves forcefully too much, we won't remain what we are.

A select case of #Evolution and #Leftist Progression in the History of Economic Thought ->
From #Marxism to #Keynesian Economics to #MMT
#Complexity
Negative events will lead to negative outcomes :
#Bolshevik Revolution => #Intenational #Proletarianism & #Leninism
#Great #Depression -> #Keynesian Economics
#Chinese Cultural Revolution -> Gang of Four
#GFC -> Modern Monetary Theory #MMT
That is how to interpret history.
Anticipating #tippingpoint is the most essential thing a gifted leader has to his credit.
All non-linear events should be studied carefully by applying #physics in social sciences, such as #Chaos #Theory and Law of #Thermodynamics.
Yes, and #Murphy's #First Law might also help.
