Could Trump's order for ventilator production from an automotive plant be cover for generator production needed in unlocking hidden Tesla Science, Tech and Medicine?

Here's why I think that answer could be yes...

Let's start with Storytime, get comfy 🍿
I saw a decode tweet today, (see next) which really connected many dots that were missing for me. So, I thought it'd be fun to sort of weave in my own research from some of my recent threads, along with this tweet to create a more detailed picture here of potential habbenings...
I'll highlight the sections that I'm diving into as we go, so refer to the pic of the decode for reference. Some sections may need more than one tweet to provide sufficient details...

1. I want to share some thoughts about how I’ve been feeling lately, in part because I suspect that many of you are feeling the same way and, for me at least, there is comfort in solidarity. #COVID19 #academic #AcademicChatter #medicine #healthcare
2. This has been a tough week, and I’m afraid that it is only the beginning. We are on spring break and I had a long list of tasks I’ve needed to accomplish but it has been difficult with everything that has been going on.
3. It isn’t just the trip cancelations and the challenge of having to move two highly interactive seminars into some sort of online format. It is the growing recognition that we are in the midst of an outbreak...

Something a lot of people may not know about me is I am really, really into genealogy. So, last week I was tracing one branch of the family and I noticed something that seemed odd. 1/15 #cdnhealth #epidemics #medicine #History
Adult siblings and cousins were losing family members over a certain time period. One fellow lost his wife and their three children over the winter of 1848/49. Then another in this family lost two children, same time frame. 2/15
Now, when you see the deaths of a mother and infant, you are liable to assume it was complications of childbirth. Infant and maternal mortality rates were much higher back then. But then you see the 3 y/o, 5 y/o, and 7 y/o also died.... It had to be something else. 3/15

औषधांचा जन्म :
जसा माणसाचा जन्म एक चमत्कार आहे अगदी तसाच औषधांचा जन्म सुद्धा! जेव्हा लाखो शुक्राणू स्पर्धा करत असतात त्यातील क्वचितच एखादा उसेन बोल्ट सारखा पराक्रमी निघतो आणि स्त्री बीजकुशपर्यंत पोहचतो आणि मानव प्राण्याचा जन्म होतो अगदी तसाच औषध जन्माचा विषय पण गुंतागुंतीचा.
औषध म्हणजे जन्म मृत्यू मध्ये संजीवनी देणारा रासायनिक पदार्थ. एखाद्या रोगावर नवीन ऍलोपॅथिक औषध निर्माण करायचं झाल्यास ती संपूर्ण प्रक्रिया कशी असते हे समजावून घेण्याचा प्रयत्न करूया.लाखो रासायनिक पदार्थ प्रयोगशाळेत बनवून झाल्यावर त्यातील एखादाच औषधयामध्ये रूपांतर होत. (२)
ज्या आजारावर औषध शोधायचं आहे त्याच्या रासायनिक रेणू ची रचना कशी असली पाहिजे हे सुरुवातीला संगणकावर तपासलं जात त्याला इंग्रजी मध्ये ( मोलूकलर मॉडेलिंग ) म्हणतात. एकदा ते ठरलं कि प्रयोगशाळेमध्ये हजारो त्याला साम्य असलेले रासायनिक पदार्थ बनविले जातात. (३)

Is President Trump assisting in the unlocking of hidden Nikola Tesla IP in science, tech and medicine?

I’m no scientist here, I’m just thinking out loud and pondering questions. I’m interested in finding out more, I do know that much. 🤓⚡️
Nikola Tesla was an inventor who obtained approx 300 patents worldwide. Some of Tesla's patents are not accounted for, many have lain hidden in patent archives...…
Among his inventions, he designed the Tesla coil in 1891. It is used to produce high-voltage, low-current, high frequency alternating-current electricity...🔮⚡️…

"People are dying."

Elizabeth has witnessed the difference between the UK and US health systems. She knows the human cost of high prices. Don’t allow the US to sabotage access to meds on the #NHS.

There has been a lot of debate on the impact of a #tradedeal with #Trump on #NHS medicine prices. Here’s a thread detailing why people are right to be worried… 1/
Firstly, the US has history. #Bigpharma spends more influencing politicians in Washington than any other industry. So the US has repeatedly used #trade agreements to force changes on countries that will boost the industry’s profits. 2/

Was #Jesus based on #Asclepius, the #Greek #God of #Medicine?
Um, #NO, and here is why:
Asclepius (Roman Aesculapius) was the son of the Greek God Apollo (aka Phoebus, aka Apollon, etc) and Coronis, a mortal woman (in some versions she is a Nymph or lesser female spirit. In some versions his mother was a mortal named Arsinoe). Like Hercules, he was originally a
a demigod (half man half god), who, after his death, became a god (among other things, as we shall see).
Are Jesus Mythicists right about Jesus and Asclepius? Was Jesus based on him?
Let's see why the answer is a big fat NO:
Virgin birth?
No, Apollo had SEX with Coronis

What if I told you that #BigTech and #SocialMedia platforms are manipulating you, steering you toward #Health information that they think is right, rather than letting you evaluate content for yourself?

Commentary by @MaryamHenein (Thread 👇)…
Accredited professionals, meanwhile, who stand for #Health freedom and who criticize Big Anything, are losing posting privileges, getting banned, being buried, finding themselves deranked, and getting digitally assassinated.
Content is literally disappearing from the Internet along with our #Health choices.

It sounds conspiratorial because it is. Independent #Journalists and health experts are blowing the whistle. But it’s become a silent one.

"What's wrong with this BS?"

If you are #depressed, you are living in the past
If you are #anxious, you are living in the future
If you are at peace, you are living in the present

WRONG! But good for teaching.

(quick trigger warning)

This is intended to be educational re: depression & anxiety. It mentions concepts that can be difficult to read about suicide, trauma, and depression. If you're not in a place to read it now, come back later :)

My cat distracts:
A psych mini-tweetorial and a bit more #philosophy, but this is important in #medicine and #psychiatry.

Ultimately, I hope it'll be obvious that this quote is simplifying, stigmatizing, and harmful. It's classic pseudo-profound bullshit.

Every summer my heart is heavy with memories of a time when I even came close to leaving #medicine-when career & motherhood collided and I didn’t ask for help.

I want to share that story in case it helps even 1 person.(Thread) #medtwitter #meded #womeninmedicine #TipsForNewDocs
I share this now because July is full of #tipsfornewdocs but August comes & we all get swallowed up in the hustle & bustle of heavy clinical loads- when orientation ends and the real work begins.
I had just finished #pediatric residency and started #anesthesia residency with a 6 month old baby. Orientation was over & we were deployed to do our first cases in the OR without an attending always in the room with us.

The #UKGovernment #Torture Report. Instead of addressing it, they keep trying to frame us. We want answers! @10DowningStreet

The short outline version is as below in this thread. It's still quite long because it started in 2006 & the UK Authorities, mainly the #MetPolice, have invested a lot of time & resources in trying to get rid of this problem by hook or by crook

It started with the #MetPolice being caught out falsifying paperwork - a search warrant. When caught out they tried to frame me for a crime I did not commit. #bbcnews #royalfamily #Metpoliceuk

(01/42) Glad to be a part of #HCTwitterConf19 today! Hi, I'm Sherri Helwig - @CanadianAAAE President, faculty at the University of Toronto Scarborough @UTSC @UofT and Queen's University @queensu - here to expound a bit about better connecting academia and practice in my field.
(02/42) My field is arts management (aka arts admin, cultural mgt, etc.), a relatively young area of study about work that was "professionalized" only in the last 3/4 century or so - though I suspect and hope the ideas here are relevant and applicable in many areas of #HigherEd.
(03/42) In other professional disciplines (#law, #medicine) there is a rich tradition of sharing innovations across the divide. In #business there are academic journals, practice-based materials, & important resources that span them like The Harvard Business Review @HarvardBiz.

#ElizabethWarren's bill reminds me of Romney's advice to youths in 4/2012, "Borrow money, if you have to, from your parents. Start a business... [Jimmy John Liautaud] borrowed $20K from his dad..."

The loan was c. 7/82 and was actually $25K.
$25K in 7/82 = $59K in 4/12
In the first half of 2019, the nat'l average #rent increased by 2.6%.…
Warren declined to be interviewed for this story. In May, at request of media, her campaign released a summary of her outside work. As a senatorial candidate, Warren released a shorter version, which omitted her work for Dow Chemical.
