#Covid-19: #Government to issue new guidance #DNAR orders after legal challenge
The #govt has announced it will publish new national guidance for England on “do not attempt resuscitation” orders, amid concern that blanket bans on cardiopulmonary resuscitation were being imposed
by some healthcare providers during the covid-19 pandemic.
The move comes after a threat of legal action against the government from Kate #Masters, the daughter of a man who successfully fought to establish that patients have a right to be consulted on resuscitation.
In May Masters launched a High Court challenge against the health secretary for England, Matt Hancock, over the government’s failure to issue clear national guidance to ensure that patients’ rights in relation to ##DNARs were protected.1

Today’s #Masters final between John Higgins & Yan Bingtao could be a cracker - & also a seminal moment in #Snooker history. Higgins is 45, he turned pro in ’92, & he’s won 4 world championships & 30 ranking titles. He was born in Wishaw, Scotland, then a coal & steel town. (1/3)
Yan, 20, was born 8 years after Higgins turned pro, & has already won a ranking title (2019 #RigaMasters). He’s from Zibo, a city of 4.5 million inhabitants & the birthplace of ancient Chinese Qi culture. Today, China is where #Snooker is growing fastest, & by some margin. (2/3)
Who’ll win? My money is on Higgins, whose long experience of big tournament finals will be hard to beat, but let me put it this way: I wouldn’t be too surprised if, by the time Yan is Higgins’ age, he’ll have won more than 30 ranking titles. He’s that good. Attaboy! (3/3)

Someone I know will soon become a F1 parent! (F1=student visa in the US).

So I offered to share a few pointers I had put together year ago for students moving to the US for higher studies.

Figured why not share it here.

#F1visa #America #Masters #students #India #Pune
Before you leave:
1.Scan every single certificate (mark sheet degree cert, birth, aadhar, Pan etc) and save in a secure place. Easiest is to open an email address only for documents. Make 4 sets of copies, 2 with your parents 2 with you.
2.Spend AS MUCH time with your parents as possible. It still will feel inadequate once you are there.
3.Buy multiple sweaters, jackets, scarves, wollen caps, gloves, wollen socks etc.

🏙️#Sex biases in the individuals studied in the lab & field. Why is it more often males of a species? What data are we missing because of that bias? 🤔

OK. It's happening, and I can finally talk openly about it (a thread).

I have decided to transfer from my #PhD into a #Masters degree. I'm currently writing my thesis - I'm due to submit in October.

And I want to talk about it, because we don't talk about this enough.
This isn't a decision I've made lightly, or impulsively. It's due to a plethora of factors, including personal, project and professional reasons. It's something I've been thinking about for a long time, and something I should have thought more about before I even started my PhD.
I like studying. I like learning. I loved university, honours was challenging, but a PhD was the next logical step. I took a little time off (not enough)-but getting a scholarship early pretty much confirmed I'm be moving on to the next part of my academic life.

1/ Earlier today, Tiger Woods won fifth Masters - his first since 2005. Woods has not been victorious in a Major since the 2008 US Open.
2/ Tiger, has who has fifteen Majors wins to his credit - is second only to Jack Nicklaus' eighteen. Some are already calling Tiger's comeback the greatest in sports history.

And Tiger Woods, whose career seemed to be over, earns the green blazer in his first-ever come-from-behind Major win.
They're interviewing other golfers who were in the chase -- guys who just LOST the Masters -- and every one of them seems sincerely happy for Tiger. That's class. #Masters
Career Masters wins:
Nicklaus 6
Woods 5
Palmer 4.
Arnie's still my all-time fave, though. Unlike Tiger, he was down-to-earth, signed autographs, never played it safe, was at his best coming from behind. I would have loved to see him and Tiger in their prime playing a skins game.

I was born and raised in the beautiful city of #Curitiba, southern #Brazil!
This region is famous for being cold and cloudy (yes it can be cold in Brazil!).
It is also famous for its very endemic and beautiful #Araucaria pine trees. #voicesIWS @IWS_Network @500womensci /1
#Actions speak louder than words! I am thankful for my parents for being who they are. Both always showed love for Nature, different interests and #curiosity! So no wonder by observing them I grew up to be a very curious girl who really loved Nature. #voicesIWS @IWS_Network /2
During High School I became fascinated by the #mendelian #genetics classes and the work of #gregormendel! I also loved studying animals, ecosystems and climate so the obvious choice for me in University (@PUCPR_oficial ) was BIOLOGY!! @IWS_Network #womeninscience #voicesIWS /3

A Thread for Men: When your #woman is #emotional, #crying or #stressed out, do not hold it against her. One of the lies of #feminism is that men and women are the same, including that we should process #emotions the same way. Reject the lie. Listen and learn in the posts below.
#Women have much greater #hormonal fluctuations each month than #men do. Simply put, a woman's thought life and #emotions are more prone to high highs, and low lows. This isn't a "design flaw" but rather how #God made a #woman to be in touch with the needs of small #children.
Nothing is more short-sighted as a #man than viewing a #woman as an "overly emotional" or "flawed" version of a man's thought process or #emotions. A woman that does not let her emotions out will become very #passiveaggressive, #depressed or #angry. Your job is to be an #outlet.
