🎨⏳📜Nautilus Cup, Chicago Art Institute
During the Age of Discovery, European artists were inspired by the exotic materials suddenly available to them. Goldsmiths seized on the opportunity to include wondrous and seemingly magical materials - Image
-including coconuts, ivory, ostrich eggs, and, in this case, a nautilus shell from the Indian Ocean - into works of art that celebrated both nature and artifice. These types of objects were also popular with collectors during the 19th c, when the mounts on this cup were reworked. Image

Meet the ‘Oxygen Man’

He’s a 52-year young man from Patna, Mr. Gaurav Rai

Saved more than 1400 lives of COVID patients

Carrying oxygen cylinders in his small WagonR car
Starts his day at 5 am and continues beyond mid-night driving his car himself and installing cylinders for the patients who are home-quarantined.

It’s a free of cost service.

He has been providing this service for almost a year.

What led him to take this initiative?
He himself was a covid patient in Jul-2020 and hospitalized at the Patna Medical College Hospital

He could find a bed for himself.

He was gasping for breath and no oxygen cylinders were available.

It took 4-5 hours to arrange the oxygen cylinder

Completed ‘Don’t Unplug’ by @chrisdancy. Great read, funny, insightful, and a little painfully relatable.

Recommend it and no matter what, do not skip the epilogue.

#TheUnitLibrary #Bookclub 🧵
I had the joy of attending a virtual LPD by Chris and pick up his book to dive into his cyborg thoughts a bit more.

The part one quote from the Nintendo quite screen assured me I was going to enjoy it.
I could never collect or analyze or process the amount of self-data that Chris has, but his structured development from his data to information to knowledge to wisdom was consistent with my KM proclivities.

#INSPIRATION RCT comparing intermediate vs standard dose DVT prophylaxis, just published @jama:
-no benefit to additional anticoag in ICU patients w/ #COVID19:no reduction in mortality, MV, LOS or any 2° endpoint
-time to rethink COVID #anticoagulation?

INSPIRATION was a 10 site open-label RCT in 🇮🇷 comparing intermediate vs standard dose prophylaxis in ICU patients with PCR-confirmed #COVID19.

LMWH was the primary intervention (~40 mg vs 1mg/kg daily), dosed appropriately for weight; UFH was used if the GFR was too low.
2/
Overall the groups were balanced (total n=562) & were fairly representative of US ICU cohorts with COVID19.

The use of HFNC was very low (~3%) compared to in the US, which may reflect different practice patterns/availability.

Most patients (>90%) received corticosteroids

Good morning and welcome to the weekend! Day 13 of our collab with artist Greg Edwards (@GregtheGrouch) features Amanda Gorman, who at 22 is the youngest entry of this series. Her story demonstrates the empowerment that comes with having a voice & creative outlet.

#BHM #thread Image
Poet and activist Amanda Gorman was born in Los Angeles, California, in 1998. She grew up with a speech impediment and has an auditory condition making her hypersensitive to sound.

#HerStory
Facing these conditions, Amanda did not despair. Writing in 2018, she said,

“I always saw it as a strength because since I was experiencing these obstacles in terms of my auditory and vocal skills, I became really good at reading and writing."

I GOT ADMISSION AFTER SIX YEARS!!!

I know this headline may resonate with some, and that is why I have decided to share.

After 6 years of anticipating a Ph.D., I got a fully-funded Ph.D. admission in 2019. Those 6 years of waiting looked like 'forever'!
#success #phd
#grateful
Waiting for anything in life is not easy, especially when you have had many successes in a related area. Don't get me wrong, I was making progress in many other areas of my life, but this one thing I have always desired and wanted: to be a Ph.D. holder wasn't just forthcoming.
A bit of background, I finished BSc summa cum laude and top of my faculty and proceeded to pursue MSc in the UK on the prestigious commonwealth scholarship. I should also mention that my undergraduate degree was filled with so many prestigious scholarships and awards.

Once a poor man was given a pot🏺 of flour so he hung it on his wall & fell asleep. He dreamt that he would become rich and achieve great things in life. But his daydreams were disturbed by a bunch of kids. So to make them go away he accidentally breaks his pot.

#newbeginnings Image
From this story, we learn that a man can dream of a lot of things but without hard work, nothing can be achieved. Thus the phrase ‘Don’t build castles in the air, they will fall’ is true.

#FridayMotivation #NewYear2021 Image
We often sit and think about the things that we should do and how rich we will become if things go according to our thoughts. But this is not how things happen in real life.

📖📚⏳🕯✨🎨 Thumbelina is a literary fairy tale written by Hans Christian Anderson.

An adventure story from the feminine point of view with its moral being people are happiest with their own kind. They point out that Thumbelina is a passive character, the victim of ... Image
...circumstances; whereas her male counterpart Tom Thumb (one of the tale's inspirations) is an active character, makes himself felt, and exerts himself.

Danish critics were not enthusiastic.

Hans Christian Andersen in 1836 Image
The informal, chatty style of the tales and their lack of morals were considered inappropriate in children's literature.

Somewhere in our conscious pursuit of patterns, grand order and #inspiration, we often miss something far more elemental – the delicate joy of connecting with #nature, beyond the practical function of existing in it.
It's how you #feel, when you stand gaping at a masterpiece in a gallery, and momentarily lose yourself into its contours. That is when your observation goes beyond being just "useful", burrows deep into the primal parts of your #brain, and tickles them with an awe.
Soaking in the occasional Sun outdoors is a rare delight, as more days of cold, cloudy #weather coming through. And every once in a while, fate rewards me with an exclusive close up of nature's masterpieces – an enchanting #honeybee, the other day.
