#Yersinia enterocolitica

It is #zoonotic and is acquired by exposure to contaminated food.

When #IDBR says #chitlins (#chitterlings), you say Y. enterocolitica

Chitlins are food made of pork intestines (where Y enterocolitica resides)

AH fuck it, i'll join the bandwagon, since people asked (and i don't wanna type this story in DMs).

Thread🧵on #Evergrande!

Why #contagion will continue to spread, why Xi will NOT change course, why it's The Federal Reserve's fault, why Hyperinflation's next, and more!
First off, Why Now?

Evergrande's been Teetering for more then a year. Naturally, things have to come to a head at some point, but why now?

I think the answer is found in Commodities. Specifically the fact that building important stuff like #Iron and #Copper have been mooning.
To stem the tide, at $4,8 a pound copper, #China announced they would release metals from their strategic reserves to stop the price increases, and copper took a dive.

Reserves they ran up in July 2020 when the price was cheap, btw. China Copper imports were off the charts.

Don't mind the Private Air Jets that will be falling from the Sky .. It's ones choosing too take the easy way out instead of being arrested for the crimes they have committed upon Children & Humanity ..

Some very high ranking Military officials that chose to be corrupt, they
also are going to choose to take the easy way out instead of being arrested.
It's all so very sad, it truly is. Every which way you choose to look at all of it, it's just sad. All the lives these corrupt individuals have hurt for money or to be placed in positions of "POWER"
to basically protect the higher ups in the chains of evils command is just horrible..
I think of the children at these individuals homes waiting for mom or dad to come home from work but they don't because they either took the easy way out or they were arrested.

Superpower or 🤡? "Pakistan’s army & its Inter-Services Intelligence(ISI) play key role in Taliban offensive. Without logistical support from Pakistan, the Taliban would be hard-pressed to operate in such a widespread way". epaper.timesgroup.com/Olive/ODN/TheE…
2/usa Superpower or 🤡? "Of course, Pakistan has been the Taliban’s patron since its creation in the 1990s.
It is impossible to defeat the Taliban as long as Pakistan provides sanctuary and safety, training, equipment and funds for the Taliban."..3/
3/usa #Clownanalysis101 🤡 "Pakistan cannot be defeated, as it is a nuclear-armed State and has the fifth-largest population in world. ...It is curious that Biden has so little to engage with Pakistan. He has yet to talk with Imran Khan." ☝🏼superpower is going to fight #China?😭

"Every metabolic function in the human body relies on magnesium, including energy production, protein synthesis (Reddy et al 2018) and Vitamin D (Dai et al. 2018)." - Thomas P Seager, PhD

"People who are deficient in magnesium are at greater risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer's, and a myriad of other diseases - perhaps because #magnesium plays a critical role in the function of insulin (Jahnen-Dechent 2012)." morozkoforge.com/post/epsom-sal… #brownfat
Agribusiness may be good for big business but it has harmed our food supply's nutrient content.
This graph shows #calcium, #iron, & #magnesium in vegetables declined a very large amount since 1914. *Same link as above Tweet. Image

Back in early September, I put out a team-by-team prediction for L2 thanks to @WeLoveBettingUK.

Roughly 17/18 games into the season, let’s see how good, and bad, my predictions are doing 😬

I’ll go from bottom to top of the actual table.
#EFL @d3d4football
24: Southend United (Predicted 24th)
#Blues have had it very tough so far. An embargo limited who could come in as they took 2 points from 11 games.

Recent form though is strong, and it’s taken them from well adrift to 1 point from safety. Not writing them off anymore...
#EFL
23: Stevenage (Predicted 21st)
I don’t think I’m too far off here. 21st is just 1 point away at the minute.

Have much more faith in this #StevenageFC team than I ever did last year and whilst they lack experience up front, defensively they’ve improved significantly overall.

1. #Thread Kailasanathar #temple
Main Deity: Mahadev Shiva. This temple is situated in #Kanchipuram. It is a temple closely connected with the life history of sage Poosalaar (a devotee of Mahadev). This temple was built by the great king Raja Simha Pallava @sattology
2. in 7th CE. It is a treasure house of #sculpture . Mahadev in the temple was worshiped by Shri Vishnu & Sage Naradha. The idol of Mahadev looks graceful with the presence of stripes on it. @Vaidyvoice @RajiIndustani @harshasherni @Itishree001 @Tanvangi17 @VipashaRanjan
3. The demons other than the thiripuraris were by nature very unruly, harassed the celestial to the greatest extent possible. Shri Vishnu, who wants to destroy the demons, came to understand that Mahadev was the only #Divine power who could destroy the demons.

We love getting questions about mining, minerals and geology! We were asked about the historical #Londonderry #iron mines. Here's the story...

#nspoli #novascotia #cbpoli @ZannLenore @MunColchester #colchester #nshistory ImageImageImage
Iron mining and smelting began in #NovaScotia in 1825 when iron mines opened at Nictaux Falls, #AnnapolisCounty, and the Annapolis Iron Mining Company built a blast furnace at Clementsport between #AnnapolisRoyal and #Digby.
#nspoli #cbpoli #colchester Image
Iron has also been mined in numerous other locations in #NovaScotia, including East River, Bridgeville and Stellarton (#PictouCounty), Brookfield and Economy Mountain (#ColchesterCounty), Erinville and other places in #GuysboroughCounty...

#GameofThrones used #Iceland's #Thingvellir Park as the #BloodyGate. Its landscape is caused by the Eurasian and #NorthAmerican tectonic plates meeting there and pulling apart at a rate of 2 cms per year. This made a rift valley: low land between 2 separating continents.
#nspoli ImageImageImageImage
#MagheramorneQuarry, #NorthernIreland, is the set for #CastleBlack and #TheWall in #GameofThrones. The quarry wall is used as a backdrop and effects make it look huge.
The site's limestone was used to make cement. #NS has a limestone quarry and cement plant in Brookfield.

Most life needs oxygen now but it killed most life two billion years ago! Algae turned sunlight into energy for the first time (called photosynthesis) and made oxygen as waste. It was toxic to the anaerobic (no oxygen) bacteria that were most life on earth then.
#nspoli #cbpoli Image
We know about the #GreatOxygenationEvent thanks to geology. The fossil record tells us a mass extinction took place and that O2 in the atmosphere caused rapid changes in the evolution of life: it helped multi-cellular life form and thrive. Without it, we wouldn't be here!
#nspoli Image
Also, the large amounts of oxygen in the atmosphere interacted with dissolved iron in the oceans to form banded iron rock - thin layers of iron oxide that fell to the ocean floor and became rock. Most #iron deposits around the world are in banded iron formations.

Warum ein Dortmunder Stahlwerk nun in China in die Krise schlittert
Als die Chinesen in Dortmund ein ganzes Stahlwerk einpackten, war das ein Symbol für die Globalisierung.

#GlobalWarmingHoax 🤣
Shagang Group drew the world's attention in 2001 when it acquired a steel mill (the Dortmund-Hörde plant) from German industrial giant #ThyssenKrupp for 30 million euros and shipped its equipment to #China where it was reassembled and resumed operation.

We love getting questions about #mining, #minerals and #geology! We were asked about the historical #Torbrook iron mines in #AnnapolisCounty. Here’s our answer:

#nspoli #NovaScotia #NS
@GlavineLeo @KeithIrvingNS
@JohnLohrMLA @mmillershubie @scottbrison @AVRCE_NS @StephenMcNeil Image
Also in 1825, the #Annapolis Iron Mining Co. built a blast furnace at #MooseRiver (#Clementsport) to smelt the magnetic ore recovered from three seams in #Clementsvale (the Miller, Potter and Milbury), as well as to accommodate production from the #Nictaux deposits.

The #TimesSquare ball that's lowered each #NewYear is made of 2688 Waterford Crystal triangles. Crystal is made of minerals such as #silica, #potash and lead. It's frame is made of aluminum. There have been 7 different balls since 1907. The 1st was made of #iron and wood.
#nspoli
Dropping a ball to mark time started in 1833 in #Greenwich, #England, at the #RoyalObservatory. A ball was lowered each day at 1 pm so nearby ships could set their chronometers (a navigational instrument).

#nspoli #novascotia #ns Image
About 150 balls were used around the world after the success at #Greenwich, but few still work. #CitadelHill’s noon cannon served a similar purpose – it kept the military running on time and allowed ships to set their chronometers.

We love getting questions about #mining, #minerals and #geology! We were recently asked about the #ScotchLake #Quarry in #CapeBreton (aka the #GeorgesRiver Quarry). Here’s our answer:

#nspoli #NovaScotia #NS #cb Image
This dolomite #quarry operated from 1899-1951 and was owned by the Dominion Iron and Steel Company (acronym: DISCO!). The #mineral dolomite has many uses, including for acid neutralization in the chemical industry, in stream restoration projects and as a soil conditioner.
#nspoli Image
DISCO made steel with #CapeBreton #coal and #iron from #Newfoundland in #Sydney's #WhitneyPier neighbourhood (named for Henry Melville Whitney, DISCO's president). #Steel is iron and carbon, and the carbon is derived from coal.

New @dbkell paper describes how, in #Alzheimer’s disease, dormant #microbes in the #blood can re-activate to drive many forms of inflammation + #neuro symptoms 👉Microbe re-activation + virulence is tied to #iron dysregulation + resulting oxidative stress:frontiersin.org/articles/10.33… ImageImageImageImage
The paper also describes mechanisms by which inflammation + oxidative stress (driven by re-activated blood #microbes)....can led to red blood #cell deformability and dysregulated nitric oxide (NO) synthesis in #Alzheimer’s patients: ImageImageImageImage
Here are two images of deformed red #blood cells (RBCs) in #Alzheimer’s 👉 This #infection-induced deformability may impair delivery of #oxygen to the #brain☝️How do these findings compare to the RBC deformability recently described by @OpenMedF in ME/CFS?:bloodjournal.org/content/132/Su… ImageImage
