#Thread
1.
1.Three unsuccessful wars of 1947,1965 & 1971 made #Pakistan realize that annexation of #Kashmir was a tough nut to crack through conventional wars after which it resorted to its tried & tested means of Proxy war... ImageImage

Today we’ll talk about Warfarin!

The year is 1920.
Farmers across North America & Canada notice that their cattle 🐮 are haemorrhaging after minor procedures & sometimes spontaneously, causing them to bleed to death. (cont’d)
#medtwitter #cardiotwitter
1921: Frank Schofield, a Canadian veterinary pathologist, determines that the cattle were ingesting moldy hay made from sweet clover. Only spoiled hay made from sweet clover (grown exclusively in North America) produced the disease . (cont’d)
Schofield separated good clover stalks and moldy clover stalks from the same hay mow, and fed each to a different rabbit 🐰.
The rabbits that ingested the bad stalks died from hemorrhagic illness. The other rabbits remained well . (cont’d)

Going to read “The Right Side of History”. This will be some mixture of enlightening, been there done that, and hate-read dunkathon. Let’s see.

No idea what Shapiro’s background is outside trolling libs, but I maybe he’s sort of Straussian? The ‘Jerusalem plus Athens’ thing.
So the thesis is ‘things have never been better, but we’re fucking it up now.’ Pinker + angst.
‘We’ in the book is Americans, natch.

Mr. Integrity: The Legacy of Gamaliel Onosode

A quick study and a brilliant scholar, he had joined the colonial development organisation straight from the university. In quick time, his abundant talents were recognised and he was being deployed to relieve regional managers whilst technically still in training.
Still in his late twenties, he had even been given delicate diplomatic assignments that involved meeting with and influencing top regional political leaders. His already princely remuneration was growing in tandem with his fast tracked trajectory to the top.
