Per @NoNutTraveler, “the @united pilot came back, & he & the flight attendant began asking me if we had Epi-Pens. I said, of course we do. To which the flight attendant gaily said: ‘Well then, we can serve anything because he can just use the pen.’” NO! /1

This represents a fundamental misunderstanding of anaphylaxis, including #peanutallergy. In fact, this fallacy—if you’ve got an Epipen, exposures aren’t a concern—was the topic of a past corrective ad that FDA required the maker of Epipen to air. /2 mmm-online.com/home/channel/o…
I’m speaking here as a dr & the mom of a kid who has nearly died of inadvertent peanut exposures even with an Epipen, which we always carry. Airlines & the public need to know that Epipens are a rescue med, not a preventative, & do not eliminate the need to avoid the allergen. /3

04/28: I spoke to the @cityofwinnipeg supporting the SPIRIT of the "Corporate Advertising Policy.”

A randy night at the senior's centre has more teeth than this #policy.

It took #Winnipeg months to put "We prefer #kindness" in print.

This is long. A 🧵 …
(Actually, 3 🧵’s)
Watch -

Our elected officials are tone deaf to harm corporate #Winnipeg enables. Context is key to understanding and interrupting my presentation proved that.

Including #wpg22 for candidates. Please address this in your campaign.

I didn't get to finish my presentation. I’ll share my notes here.

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)

#Medium #Mediumship, was reading an old #Tufts@TuftsDaily⁩ article from 2008 interviewing ⁦@jessicaalba⁩ about her film #TheEye, watched the trailer:
you do see how see people died, though, if contacted by the deceased, they share their personality, images of what is relevant, what they think is, which can be difficult; I take #antidepressants, and, am #healing myself from illness, some #trauma, too, and, was seeing more,
earlier in my healing, and believe it is crucial to have a filter/level of #health with, a pretty well-known #medium told me he also got very sick with #pnemonia, I had #mycoplasmapnemonae, in #MeCFS #CFS, had #Lyme #LymeDisease, too, and, the information is for #healing,

One of my F1s phoned me on a Friday evening wanting to talk. They sounded very sad and I asked what’s up. They said that they had done two things today for which they had been told off in a way which had really shattered their confidence. I listened to what they had done and you
could see that things could have been handled differently, but I reminded them that there is not a healthcare professional that has ever lived that has not at some point done something which was not quite right and that these moments are an opportunity for growth. This also
reminded me of three other things.
1. When @MartinBromiley told the hospital staff where his wife Elaine tragically died that he wanted those involved in her death to come back to work, because not only would they be better clinicians but would spread the lessons zfrom@it #growth

Samad is living in Ghazni with his family of eight members, majorly comprising of children. Amidst the current crisis, he has lost his job and cannot feed or keep his children warm during this cold season. (1/4)
Fortunately, he was supported by your donations through Aseel. You have warmed their home and hearts this winter.
Watch what he has to say about the situation he is going through; one which is faced by many others in Afghanistan. (2/4)
The situation is worsening as the weather gets colder. With each passing day, more families like Samad's need urgent help to survive.
You can do your part and save lives through Aseel from anywhere in the world. You're just a few clicks away. (3/4)

🧵Twitter is getting pretty hot tonight. Lots of people stressed about #Omicron, & it's manifesting in fights with one another & a desire to kill the #MedTwitter messengers. So I want to share something I started doing years ago, in traffic. Maybe it'll help you. I don't know.
2/X: One day I was driving to work, & a woman cut me off in her car. Really cut me off. Weaving lane to lane, wildly between cars, causing me to swerve & almost causing a multi-vehicle accident. I'd just had my car totaled by someone who ran a red a few mos before, & I was livid.
3/X: I found myself asking what in the hell could possibly be such an emergency that she needed to drive like that. And then suddenly, I thought: maybe her childcare provider was late & she's at risk of being fired if she's late...or maybe her baby vomited on her as she left...

Anyone who calls a socialist an enemy of ordinary people is an enemy of ordinary people – because socialism is precisely about protecting ordinary people.

Lie about that and what else will you lie about?

Anyone who calls a socialist an enemy of the economy is an enemy of the economy – because any fool knows the economy's real enemies are those who strip away its assets and hoard away its wealth.

*PUT YOUR PAWS IN THE AIR FOR THIS REAL LIFE HERO!!!*
Last week my friend’s @RamboTeaches brother was in a terrible crash in his semi. When the ambulance came to get him they found his puppy and travel companion, Bruno. (1/5) Image
Bruno rode in the ambulance - his dad went into surgery then Bruno had to go to a shelter. He was scared and far from home! 🥺 Luckily, a hero came forward. Nurse Janis Koren graciously offered to take Bruno until things could get sorted out. (2/5) Image
She opened her heart and her home to help a stranger. She took Bruno knowing he isn’t even fully potty trained! 💦 She thoughtfully sent pictures and updates to worried friends back home. (3/5)

The Reason We Do What We Do….
This little 6 month old boy was at Kaufman Killpen all alone, scared & unhandled. When we saw him we just couldn’t look away. We knew we had to get him out of there & fast. Once we got him out of there he spent time in quarantine & has made it home.
I had the opportunity to meet this sweet boy this past weekend where he and I formed a bond of love and trust. I am humbled by the bond I formed with him. The peace and calm I felt from bonding with him was one of the most amazing experiences of my life.
I walked into his pen with another member of the rescue and he handed me his lead rope. I stood there quietly waiting for him to see that all I wanted was to love him and not hurt him. I stood next to him, waiting for him to feel the love I had for him.

As I slowly progress through my research career, I have often been told that the next degree/career stage/job is so much harder than the last. The constant implication is that we don’t know *real* work until we reach the level of x. Can we stop this please?
Dismissing the challenges faced by those earlier in their career merely undermines and dissuades the next generation. I have as much admiration and respect for an eager undergrad as I do for the most senior academic. Respect is free. Share it widely.
Instead of belittling others experiences and creating an environment of fear can we instead take every opportunity to build? To teach? To mentor and encourage with kindness and positivity?

🏳️‍🌈 Ruth Coker Burks 🏳️‍🌈
“In 1984, when Burks was 25 & a young mother living in Arkansas, she would often visit a hospital to care for a friend who had cancer. During one visit, she noticed the nurses would draw straws, afraid to go into one room, its door sealed by a big red bag.
She asked why and the nurses told her the patient had Gay-Related Immune Deficiency (GRID), later known as AIDS. On a repeat visit, and seeing the big red bag on the door, Burks decided to disregard the warnings and sneaked into the room.
In the bed was a skeletal young man, who told her he wanted to see his mother before he died. She left the room and told the nurses, who said, "Honey, his mother’s not coming. He’s been here 6 weeks. Nobody’s coming”. Burks called his mother anyway, who refused to come visit her

What will 'someone' do to help another.

We are always cautioned about the other, to be wary. But the stories we hear now tell & teach us otherwise.

Here is one such.

Story of a 75+ senior citizen, living alone in Bangalore, with a young care taker. No close relatives.
SC falls ill. Concerned neighbours contact niece & nephew who live out of state. Tests done, both SC & caretaker are positive. Nephew, an employee of Cisco, taps into the work volunteer network to arrange a bed.

Meanwhile, the saturation level starts dropping.
Niece manages to secure a bed. But how to get her there?!

Someone reaches out to WR, who then reaches out to @mercymission1 for an ambulance.

Time is ~9pm.

Ambulance is arranged, with oxygen cylinder.

“Violence,” you say, “is the last refuge of the incompetent.”
I can only agree. It’s a great saying. Whose is it?
“Isaac Asimov, I think. I’m not sure.”
The science fiction writer?
“Yes.”
I love the guy. He said a lot of great stuff. Have spacesuit. Will travel.

“No, that was Heinlein.”
Ah. Right-wing libertarian Heinlein. I loved a lot of his stuff, too. Starship Troopers. Stranger In A Strange Land. Shame he was a right-wing libertarian.

“He was probably ok with violence, too.”
Shifting back to the topic of violence….
“Shall we?”
Why not? I agree with you.
“With me or Isaac Asimov?”
Either. Both.
