PARASITIC PLANTS! A thread on why cheating beats competing, for the dodder parasite @jianqiang_wu @MikeAxtell @RunoSteven @kevinfolta @LynnSosnoskie @plantae_org @ASPB @PlantTeaching @QUBIGFS @FrontYoungMinds #Plants #PlantSci #Parasite
For the younger readers out there, a plain language summary on how a plant, commonly called the ‘dodder’ can steal its food and water from other plants, courtesy of the fantastic resource at @FrontYoungMinds doi.org/10.3389/frym.2… I am also super proud to be an editor here!
The dodder (Cuscuta campestris, or any of the other Cuscuta species) is a parasite, it needs to steal all its food and resource from other plants. The adaptations required to live like this make for a lot of really interesting behavioural contrasts!

Agrobacterium tumefaciens: soil microbe and genetic engineer by profession. A THREAD on the spectacular biology of the 100% NATURAL genetic modification process, and how we can use it to make better crops #GMO
A. tumefaciens lives in the soil, and is attracted to plant roots by chemicals that are released from naturally occurring wounds. When the microbe makes contact with the plant root, it spits out a plant hormone called cytokinin, which helps it to stick to the plant cells.
High concentrations of plant wound compounds like acetosyringone induce a range of genes in Agrobacterium, changing it from nondescript soil microbe to genetic engineer!

I believe that your blood group (an “unstudied” science) can also identify your race. (Not absolute. All that body in-breeding over generations.)

Oh, that “Annunaki” conspiracy theory, Ja; to throw the still clearer thinkers off this trail❓ (Ditto DNA)
So that no one even much notices, that even the Bible identifies Ab-RA-ham as being from Ur: a SUMERIAN❗️ (Doesn’t much fit that ENKI / ENLIL, story, there, does it❓🤔)
I also, don’t really believe in anyone called “Hathor.” So what does that say about the interpretation of all those “hieroglyphics” and finds like the “Rosetta stone❓”
#OccamsRazor: if they stole so much of the other history ...❓🤔

Brazilian Regulator's Irresponsibility Produces #Dengue 'Super Mosquito' redebrasilatual.com.br/ambiente/2019/… (Portuguese) New hybrid mosquitoes may be more harmful to health and the environment. #gmo
Without being consulted, nor even informed, about the risks to which it would be exposed, the population of the Pedra Branca district was subjected to an experiment between 2013-2015... 1,144 residents were infested with thousands and thousands of #GMO mosquitoes by Oxitec.
The #GMO mozzies had the mission of copulating with Aedes females and transmitting to their offspring a protein capable of killing them before reaching reproductive age. The PR claim was that the GMO insects wouldn't reproduce, much less perpetuate themselves in the environment.

Thread 1. For many the main takeway from this report seems to people should 'eat less meat and become a vegetarian' otherwise we face a food crisis. Its clearly a good thing for many reasons to cut meat consumption - health, climate etc. But whats missing from this story....
2. Well first of all - 1 in 3 people already face hunger issues, close to billion face malnutrition not in the future but right now. So the hunger crisis is happening -but of course its happening to people in the global South so it only matters when it might impact 'rich' people
3. Yet a 1/3 of all the food produced is wasted and a 1/3 of all soil eroded. You would be forgiven for thinking this was a result of something magical that could only be fixed by 'individual consumers' changing their habits rather than this has been deliberately engineered.

India (Bhārat), aka Republic of India (Bhārat Gaṇarājya) constitutes a mosaic of paradoxes and contradictions starting with the existence of gigantic socio-economic disparities which are in sharp contrast with the spectacular technological development in most productive sectors.
Such contradictions reflect significant measurement discrepancies which, in India's case, could be on the order of hundreds of millions of people.
Furthermore, there is the problem of Islamic terrorists, who are trained abroad and find easy fuel in the contradictions within it.
Finally, there’s agriculture which, by some estimates, accounts for 90% of India’s water consumption. Farmers meet irrigation demands by indiscriminately extracting groundwater, which some say accounts for a quarter of the world’s groundwater usage.

To me the push back against #BigPharma #Vaccines #GunControl #Police #Prisons #Abortion #GMO #Monsanto et al and the other top level conspiracy debates are about government control! Think about the polarised sides that these debates take and who is on which side!
Do Democrats want overarching control in a socialist state? They support abortion choices which conservatives say ‘kills’ millions each year! Which can be spun as controlling the reproductive capabilities of some sections of society.
They support Gun Control which would leave the people defenceless against a tyrannical government. The support open borders and mass migration which would undoubtedly create a class of uneducated workers that would be taken advantage of.

Yesterday morning I attended a talk on the genetic engineering of farmed animals at #AAAS2019. Some thoughts….
First of all, it’s already happening in research labs. It’s probably going to happen commercially. And, as with #GMO plants, the question of whether those animals are “natural” is a distraction.
But in thinking of how this technology will be used, it’s worth considering what conventional breeding has done to the animals we bring into being to serve us.

If you ever worried that science was being warped by corporate interests, this backpedal by AAAS in giving an award to pesticide researcher should lay that to rest.

Answer seems to be "yes."

Ok, here's my rant. For years I've been asking the #scicomm pros: what do we do if we see the next Andrew Wakefield coming? What is your guidance on that? I have never seen an answer. They focus downstream on "hesitant" parents. Which is also needed. But it's not enough.
Parents are hesitant because they hear bogus claims from crap peddlers. These are amplified by networks of both opportunistic practitioners of various stripes (with detox potions, antineoplastons, movies to sell, for example), as well as just true-beleevers of claims--zealots.
And sometimes it's coming just from pranksters and fakenews peddlers. Some of it may actually be coming from malicious actors and crafted misinformation campaigns in, say, Russia. buzzfeed.com/danvergano/fac… Or #organic industry funded malcontents like USRTK.

SQUARE #FLATEARTH //THREAD//

...This thread will focus on some of the things covered in a little known FB group called:

"Ethiopian Enoch 1 , Flat Fact Square Earth Truth. Ae Pizza Fe Lie ."

This group differs from other #FLATEARTH groups in the following ways:
* Advanced FE information is presented & shit posting is discouraged.
* Promotion of the "round map" or "debate" are forbidden.
* Redundant experiment, observation & recording of data is encouraged.
* The book "1 Enoch" is the main reference text, (Richard Lawrence Translation)
The main work--started by a man named Sam--is focused on Enoch due to Sam having matched what's described in 1 Enoch Ch. 72, 73, etc, with observable reality. Deeper exploration of the Enoch text gives clues to other occulted knowledge about this realm we call "Earth".

#CSPC2018 @mgfortin_rd says #citizenscience and participative science is incredibly important. This isn't only including public in research, it's engaging communities who have knowledge incl #indigenous traditional knowledge.
... Current project ongoing, is a northern community that wants to better document the status of their natural resources (air quality, water) and to analyze the impact of #climatechange & other human impacts on these. There is added value to including these communities. #CSPC2018

(1) "How can we hope to wrest sovereignty away from the oligarchy and back to the people?" Why do you have to search for American made products to purchase. Most products sold in America are made in China, and other countries.
(2) When was the last time you spoke to an American when calling for customer support. Research how many politicians have personally gained by destroying America's independency.
(3) The same politicians made healthcare insurance impossible to afford with less coverage for many Americans. They destroyed our factories, they fed us poisonous ( #GMO ) foods, they kept raising our taxes, they weakened our military,.....

✂️🐟🎉🏀 Hey everyone, @Science_Baller here! I'll be the guest host today talking about all things #STEMed #scioutreach #scicomm and #CRISPR today! Jump with questions at any time and I'll try to answer them! It's going to be a #zebrafishparty and I'm pumped! 😎
A little about myself: I am a new lecturer in Biological Sciences @VanderbiltU . I teach a section of Introductory Bio (220 students) and 3 sections of Intro Bio Lab (16 students/each). What's the biggest course you have had to teach? #STEMed #AcademicTwitter #phdlife #phdchat
I graduated with my Ph.D. in Biochemistry in May from @RiceUniversity . My research focused on #zebrafish genetics using #CRISPR mutagenesis. My big paper discussed a new #CRISPR tool that we developed which has an increased mutation rate+longer deletions onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/pdf/10.100…

1. The weaponization of our society seems to cover just about every facet of #American lifestyle. From life's necessities to technology, to media, even our governing agencies. We have to ask: #WhereDoesItAllEnd?.. in #MartialLaw?

#EverythingWeaponized
2. Let's first define what it means to '#Weaponize'. It's simple...do the opposite of what something is supposed to do:

A. Make drinking water unsafe
B. Make food poisonous instead of nutritious
C. Allow @TheJusticeDept to let crime flourish
D. Turn our news into lies: #FakeNews
3. Clearly, the single greatest threat to our society and our entire earth is #GeoEngineering - the spraying of our skies by both military & commercial aircraft.

Just #Lookup!.. it's not hard to spot But what are the motives? We've heard it all. #Chemtrails #OpChemtrails #HAARP
