I just noticed Roberts isn't using a "gavel" but using something, that I called on the podcast, "like a paperweight."
@JosephPatrice said no that's a thing, that the Senate doesn't actually use a traditional gavel, but a "hand gavel."
@JosephPatrice He's right. Ever has the Senate used a "hand gavel." Apparently, Richard Nixon actually *broke* one in 1954:

@JosephPatrice Apparently, @JosephPatrice remembers some people calling it a "feminine gavel," because, well, it lacks the "dongle" (my word) of the traditional, hammer-thingy gavel.

I am very glad that the Senate no longer makes gavel distinctions based on their phallic nature.

#METS for cardiac risk stratification
➡️ decision making based on patients functional capacity (fitness)

@CUMCAnesthesia Grand Rounds

Actually poor correlation between patient self reported exercise capacity & objective testing results (R=0.31) or METS vs cardiac complications!
What about biomarkers for fitness?!!
➡️ Natriuretic peptides
1️⃣ Subjective fitness estimate (METS)
2️⃣ Standardized questionnaires
3️⃣ Exercise tests
4️⃣ Biomarkers
Combining all 4 in prospective study to predict post-op outcomes

➡️ subjective assessment by anesthesiologists was NOT predictive !!!

Major incident at the #ConEd plant right by my house just now. Sky is lit up like the 4th of July. #Astoria #Queens #NYC
Everyone is safe and sound over here. We have all gotten a kick out of reading thru the mentions. Thanks for the entertaining night, Twitterverse.
I'm sure we can all chalk this up to @Noahsyndergaard coming back to
#Queens using the Bifrost. #Marvel #Thor #Mets #ConEd #Astoria

1/I’ll foolishly try this 1 last time: trades don’t get done quickly because all kinds of permutations are discussed and there are usually multiple teams involved and multiple voices in each organization. Maybe #Mets are about to trade Dunn, Kelenic, McNeil for a Happy Meal.
2/Players names get leaked for a variety of reasons, but not until a deal is done is it all understood. It is possible only 1 of those prospects are involved or 3 or none or there is a third team or other players. Also, the NYM know more about their prospects than all of us
3/Doesn't mean they won't make mistakes, only that most who say the NYM can't trade "X" have never even seen "X" play. There were those who thought the Padres were dumb for trading Wisler in the Kimbrel trade. He was a universal top-50 prospect. Didn't work out.
