@NPR is doing its annual reading and tweeting of the #DeclarationOfIndependence. 246 years ago a group of men felt it so important that they risked everything to defy a King & start a path for a democratic republic. Today we’re seeing those values attacked by the stolen #SCOTUS
The #AntiDemocraticParty of the GOP passing laws & ideas to circumnavigate the will of #Americans. On this #IndependenceDay2022, it is time to not celebrate what happened 246 years ago, but to honor it by standing up for our #FellowAmericans ensuring that #Rights and #Freedoms
Are actually for all of us. #Autonomy is a #Right. Not being shot because you look dangerous or are frightened or just went to school #Right. Loving yourself & having your ability to have your own family is a #Right. #Healthcare is a #HumanRight (#AbortionIsHealthcare)

🧵It was after 7pm. I have a house rule about phone calls after 7. He didn't care. When I reminded him of the rule, he became angry and repeatedly, aggressively, accused me of "not allowing him to speak to his children!"
When I reminded him he was welcome to talk to our kids anytime before 7pm, he launched into mocking my parenting.
I pushed the end call button.

Aside from all the bullish and bearish posts about crypto and bitcoin in general-- I think
it's very important for people to understand the bigger picture of what is going on in the world
Not everyone is going to agree, but this is the reality.
Let's first go into the concept of the gold standard and what the asset truly represents. Gold was a product of value
that was used to back the fiat currency, but as the US dollar drifted away in 1971 everything changed, but the
valuation of gold was kept as the general populati
on believed it to be the foundation of what we call money now. You start to question though, if fiat currencies are not backed by any valuation, what gives it the value that
we believe it to be today? Fiat is strictly driven by the concept of debt, and debt can only go so far un

1/🧵 Long COVID Brain Science: 🧠

For ~100M suffering 🌎, let’s use data to combat myths & #Misinformation

COVID is biologically dangerous long after virus is gone

#LongCOVID affects our….

📍Olfactory & Limbic Systems
📍 Interferon Autoimmunity
📍PET scans

How? Image
2/ First, Epidemiological comparisons…


Survivors of viral infxns like #Flu don’t complain of 200 long-term symptoms & ~90% ongoing mood disorders.

#LongCOVID pts do.

Flu kills 0.5M/year vs COVID has killed 10X that (5M) in just 2 years.
3/ Consider this:

A study of 150k COVID survivors, hospitalized & not.

COVID survivors had 10-15X ‼️higher risk of considering #suicide at 1 year than 11M control patients.

This is horrifying, yet people still deny #LongCOVID’s importance.

WHY? ImageImageImage

🚨📣15 more families are supported in Samangan with your donations through the campaign organized by @toimohammadbegzad.📣🚨

(1/4) ⤵️⤵️
Samangan is a province located on the northern side of the country. It is one of the most underserved and remote regions in Afg, consisting of 59% of mountainous terrain. Thus, it makes it hard for families living there to have easy and immediate access to aid and food. (2/4)
However, our volunteer team is willing to visit the most remote places and help families with your donations.

⚠️This campaign is still active, and we have to urgently support more families on the waiting list as they are going through acute hunger. (3/4)

.@MacEmerg Virtual Regional Rounds: #DEI in #MedEd: Being an #upstander!

💭Why does #DEI matter? Many benefits, here are just a few:
🗺️Improved cultural competence
🏥Expanded delivery of health care to low resource settings
🗨️Improved intellectual discussion in MedEd Image

💭The issue is that Racism exists on all levels. And because its so embedded in our societies, it's hard to recognize and even harder to change. Image

⚠️⚠️We need your attention to one of the child campaigns organized by @87films!

As many families live together in peace with their families and friends today, families in Afghanistan are praying day and night not to lose their children due to malnutrition. (1/3) Image
The number of malnourished children is rapidly increasing, and children are the primary victims of this unprecedented crisis.
We ask everyone reading this to donate (any amount can make a difference) or share the link widely with their community and those who can contribute. 2/3

1/🧵 A personal story of misjudgment as a physician.
Years ago, when I was a young doctor, I had a patient in the ICU on a ventilator who was doing so poorly, day after day, that I was certain he was going to die.

I confidently told the family he was going to die.
2/ The family members all gathered and were extremely distraught. They listened and trusted me.
But I was wrong.

#PalliativeCare #EndofLife
3/ For many years to come, I received Christmas cards from this man.

It was extremely humbling.
Until I learned, this happened many other times in my life as an ICU doctor.

Sometimes I was off by just 2 weeks, sometimes 2 months, and other times by 2 years.

I hope someday, If God is willing, I can show to my descendant(s) my social media accounts, Twitter, or Instagram, whether he/she (they) will be my child out of my womb or will be bornt from my "heart", or whether they will be my "spiritual children".
I hope this account will become one of God's tools to bless their lives. Well, if they somehow have an interest or some curiosity to see it. I won't push them. But when they do, I pray they will be blessed by it.

I love how folk (mostly White) on the left want whole ass gigantic mountains, the heavens & the 🌍 to be moved to expedite the prosecution of Trump’s cabal but when we asked y’all to police your White peeps away from voting for him in the 1st place, y’all couldn’t be bothered. 😒
We’ve literally been warning y’all that this shit was a Klan kleptocracy disaster just waiting to happen for not just years or decades, but CENTURIES. Y’all’s sense of urgency & justice is still hampered by your myopic privilege so you fail to realize that we’re already TOO LATE.
Millions are dead from COVID worldwide and thousands are dying every damn day in this Russia/Ukraine war (that was explicitly promised & ordained as a consequence of Trump in the WH), so y’all still need to disabuse yourselves of the notion that damage control is a glamorous job.

Spent more time in the garden today. Insect populations are booming! A bit of sunshine really helps to lift the spirits.
#Hoverfly Image
Had a run of 3 good days, but just tried doing *some* of the things my lungs had allowed me to do over the weekend & over-did it by fixing the ball-cock in the toilet cistern! Lowered my guard; lungs are tight again (first time in 10 days) & I'm lightheaded. #PulmonaryEmbolism

1/🧵🎥 “It’s a very bad disease. It can be overcome.”
My #COVID patient tearfully speaks of his BIG DECISION on the ventilator.

This soldier & leukemia survivor made it through 3 weeks on a ventilator. How?
Video shown w his permission “to help others find hope, Doc.”
2/ This immunocompromised man was in massive viral septic shock from COVID.

Huge doses of vasopressors.

Gargantuan levels of O2 & vent pressure to save his life.

Lungs, Kidneys, Heart and Brain all failed.
3/ His wife was there with him daily.

We put up pictures of his kids and pets.

We talked to him about the things he loved every day (even when sedated and seemingly unable to hear us).

Somewhere in all of that, he made a silent decision…

1/🧵 Let’s talk Long COVID:

I’m grouping several important & interesting articles about the reality of #LongCOVID.

By studying brain fluid, viral persistence & MRIs, we’re building our understanding of the “how” & “why” of this devastating malady.

A train is coming, read on…
2/ Cerebrospinal Fluid Offers Clues to #BrainFog

Most pts w new “thinking problems” after mild #COVID had abnormalities in fluid from lumbar punctures (image); controls did not.

Delayed #LongCOVID was common in younger people who thought they were safe.
3/ Believing those with #LongCOVID complaints is our 1st basic show of support!

“If people tell us they have new thinking & memory issues, I think we should believe them rather than require that they meet certain severity criteria.”

1/🧵 Are you happy?

My brother w #DownSyndrome is teaching me tons of life lessons.

In medicine & in life, I make big decisions based on guesstimates of other’s Quality of Life #QOL.

What do adults w #disability teach me about TRUTH?

Can I learn? Image
2/🎥 How do we “calculate” someone’s #QOL?
#Confession: I get it all wrong when I impose MY judgment onto THEIR life.
Greg, my 57 y/o brother-in-law with Down Syndrome, has a better QOL than I do.


Digest this…read on…
3/ My working definition of QOL is “the ability to give & receive love.”


Greg understands the Law of the Gift: Treasures GROW when we give them away.

It’s the opposite of hoarding.

Yet, giving ourselves to others can be SCARY. Greg ponders deeply these emotions. Image

2. First, what does a GROUP of gathered staff look like?? THIS!! In their brand new, never-before-used Community Hall! #Honoured We came up with ideas for all sorts of community events, to ripple out the insights of today to parents & others, didnt we @geordiepeaches ? 😀
3. New teacher: “I’ve been using cards I made up to let the kids choose how to regulate. They only took me a few minutes to make. They’ve saved me hours of time. It’s like a way for them to tell me what they need even in midst of big emotions.”
Me: “Do you have them handy?”

The weather is 23 F (-5 C); it snows heavily in Kabul. Everywhere is covered with snow. As beautiful as Kabul appears today, thousands of untold stories reside in each corner of this city. (1/4)
It is a joyous day of playing in the snow for some kids. On the other side, there are kids with cold hands, old torn clothes, no shoes, no gloves, begging for a helping hand to be able to survive this cold, harsh winter. (2/4)
We at Aseel are working non-stop every day to bring back the liveliness of this city, make the gloomy and snowy days brighter, and support as many Afghans as possible to bring joy to each family. However, we can only do this with your help. 💙 (3/4)

1/ #BellLetsTalk Time for another 🌶🧵. Today, this personally cuts deep. 6 weeks of unpaid leave from nursing. Colleagues short-staffed and struggling through outbreaks in fully vaxxed settings, yet I sit at home robbed of my identity. My career. Over one “choice.” BNRN.
2/ #BellLetsTalk The sudden white-knight virtue signalling of those in power that have locked down their citizens and restricted them for two years right now is nauseating. Ex: here’s Doug Ford talking about mental health after closing gyms for a YEAR. All in this together?
3/ #BellLetsTalk about what losing a career or business does to your mental health. Let’s talk about how our covid tunnel vision has led to trickle-down mental damages that will be felt for YEARS to come. Let’s look at some of the academic evidence. 800,000 suicides every year.

Hope/आशा की किरण...

1950 के दशक में हावर्ड यूनिवर्सिटी के विख्यात साइंटिस्ट "कर्ट रिचट्टर" ने चूहों पर एक अजीबोगरीब शोध किया था।

कर्ट ने एक जार को पानी से भर दिया और उसमें एक जीवित चूहे को डाल दिया।

पानी से भरे जार में गिरते ही चूहा हड़बड़ाने लगा

औऱ जार से बाहर निकलने के लिए लगातार ज़ोर लगाने लगा।

👉चंद मिनट फड़फड़ाने के पश्चात चूहे ने जार से बाहर निकलने का अपना प्रयास छोड़ दिया और वह उस जार में डूबकर मर गया।

☝️कर्ट ने फ़िर अपने शोध में थोड़ा सा बदलाव किया।

☝️उन्होंने एक दूसरे चूहे को पानी से भरे जार में पुनः डाला।
चूहा जार से बाहर आने के लिये ज़ोर लगाने लगा।

☝️जिस समय चूहे ने ज़ोर लगाना बन्द कर दिया और वह डूबने को था...
☝️ठीक उसी समय कर्ड ने उस चूहे को मौत के मुंह से बाहर निकाल लिया।

☝️कर्ड ने चूहे को उसी क्षण जार से बाहर निकाल लिया,जब वह डूबने की कगार पर था।

☝️चूहे को बाहर निकालकर
