1/ #Mentorship 🧵

This woman is my #mentor (pic w perm). Joan W Bennett. She’s in @theNASciences as geneticist & mycologist. Today we are at the Parthenon in Nashville TN where after 35 YEARS, she still provides me council…

#MedTwitter #Sciencetwitter
2/ Dr. Bennett taught me that mentorship is not a job w an endpoint. She assumed this role IN my life FOR life. Today we talked as much about parenting as science. We are in each other’s front row. This is the depth of a true mentor-mentee relationship.
#MedEd @theNAMedicine
3/ Like any relationship, there must be chemistry & connection. If you don’t have that w a “mentor,” maybe you have the wrong person. Build a relationship not a business arrangement. It’s also NOT just a trajectory to promotion. #Mentorship is “whole” person care & development.

Ancient Deity of the Week - Hermes 🧚📨💪

(1/8) One of the twelve Olympians and the herald of the gods, Hermes also played the role of protector of human heralds, travellers, thieves and merchants.

#Classics #Hermes #Greek #Myth #Gods #Religion
(2/8) In Greek mythology, Hermes was the son of Zeus and Maia. In reality, he appears to have emerged in Mycenaean Greece in the Late Bronze Age. His name first appears in Linear B syllabic script as "hermāhās", and he may have been adopted from Mesopotamia.
(3/8) Beyond his role as messenger, Hermes was also able to freely move between the realms of mortals and the divine. As such, he also played the role of psychopomp, or "soul guide", directing the souls of the dead into Hades.

Classical Artwork of the Week - The Hellenistic Prince 👑🏛️

(1/6) This stunning Greek bronze sculpture of a relaxed, heroic young man was made in the 2nd century BCE, and stands at an imposing 2.04m tall!

#Classics #Art #Archaeology #Roman #Greek #Hellenic
(2/6) Produced using a lost wax process, the sculpture depicts a naked and athletic figure reclining on his spear in a pose traditionally associated with heroism. Inspired by the 4th century BCE "Heracles" of the artist Lysippos, it was likely produced in the city of Rome.
(3/6) The identity of the figure has been a point of academic debate. Alternatively known as the Seleucid Prince, the sculpture was originally believed to depict either Seleucus I, the founder of the Seleucid Empire, or Attalus II, the King of Pergamon.

Short @AbiyAhmedAli: We defeated #TPLF (june tah) completely & #Eritrea is in #Ethiopia only because we are at war with TPLF whom we have defeated completely 4 month ago. Mayyybe our soldiers & Isaias did a little raping here and there but TPLF ATTACKED NORTHERN COMMAND!
(2) #Eritrea|ns have made a very strong argument as to why they cannot withdraw from sovereign #Ethiopia|n territories, because they fear being attacked by #TPLF (who I have totally annihilated) and I must say I find their arguments compelling. The war is to catch 12 people.
(3) The call for us to withdraw #Amhara Special Forces from #Tigray is like me telling the US: Colorado National Guard cannot be dispatched to California in a state of emergency. Everybody knows Colorado ethnics & California ethnics are analogous to Tigray-Amhara ethnies.

Dirty tricks used in frenzied attempts at containing an increasingly damaging situation for #Greek PM @kmitsotakis’ govt: major #Greek news portal @in_gr uses photoshopped image of former PM, opposition leader @atsipras, with #Lignadis, the disgraced former director of
the National Theatre who now stands accused of multiple counts of rape involving minors.
The piece uses a sensationalist headline to make its point & places the disclaimer about the doctored image as a *footnote* explaining it’s a fake but that it “might have been true”!
Such blatant disregard for journalistic ethics & standards in the service of sensationalism & the scramble to construct a plausible narrative, speaks volumes as to the perceived damage inflicted to the govt’s image and signals a no-holds-barred fight to defend the inner circle.

Thread on staggering #media_manipulation scandal involving the #Greek public broadcaster @ERTsocial.
Greek journalist @ChristosXanthak broke the story in a tweet a short while ago
It seems that @ERTsocial ran a report about the PM’s tour of the island of Ikaria yesterday during its noon bulletin -after the uproar and general outcry however, the following notice was posted in the Production Room to ensure this “mistake” was not repeated.
The note reads:
To fellow producers
We don’t run (a) photo(s) or video of @kmitsotakis on the veranda of the Stefanadis residence (lunch) in Ikaria.
Also, we only run footage of Lignadis on his own, not with others.
Thank you”

After #Moria fires in Sept #Greek gov moved 7.5K ppl to camp built on top of firing range. No soil testing was conducted prior to moving ppl there: shocking decision as firing ranges are known as commonly contaminated with lead. Check @hrw's report:…
Lead highly toxic to humans when ingested/inhaled, particularly by kids & during pregnancy @WHO says no known safe lead exposure. It degrades slowly, sites can remain dangerous for decades. Firing range was in use from 1926 until days before camp was built…
Even worse, #Greek gov failed to clear unexploded mortar projectiles and live small arms ammunition before moving ppl there, did wildly negligent clearance operations only after families with kids arrived…

A Brief Note on an Apparent Contradiction:

In Acts 9, Luke says Paul’s companions on the Damascus Road ‘heard a voice’ (ἀκούοντες τῆς φωνῆς) but ‘didn’t see anything’ (μηδείς).

In Acts 22, however, Paul says his companions ‘saw a light’ and ‘didn’t hear a voice’...
...(τὴν φωνὴν οὐκ ἤκουσαν).

What are we meant to make of these two statements?

First there’s the question of reconciliation, which doesn’t seem too hard.

That Paul’s companions didn’t see μηδένα (masc.) could mean they didn’t see any *one* rather than any *thing*,
in which case Paul’s companions could have seen a light and yet still be said not to have seen μηδένα in Acts 9.

(To make it clear they didn’t see anything at all, θεωροῦντες μηδὲν would, I think, be more natural.)

1/4 An extreme rare and widely unknown event of #humanity during the #SmyrnaHolocaust. In #Smyrna, now #Izmir the #Greek and #Armenian #Christian residents were forced to the docks to escape, many though met their deaths, the #Japanese ship Tokei Maru was one of the first to help
2/4 At the time, some Allied warships were in the harbor, along with many merchant ships. But most of them refused to pick up refugees. Amidst all the chaos, a #Japanese freighter was reported to have unloaded all its precious cargo to take on as many refugees as it could
3/4Tokei Maru rescued many #Greeks and #Armenians in the face of Chaos, loss of cargo and reported threats. The bravery of the Tokei Maru and her crew is to be admired, an act of #humanityoverhatred. Smyrna was almost completely burned and it's #Christians exiled and exterminated
