API is the acronym for Application Programming Interface, which is a software intermediary that allows two applications to talk to each other. Each time you use an app like Facebook, send an instant message, or check the weather on your phone, you’re using an API.
What an API Also Provides Is a Layer of Security
Your phone’s data is never fully exposed to the server, and likewise the server is never fully exposed to your phone. Instead, each communicates with small packets of data, sharing only that which is necessary—like ordering takeout

So I posted yesterday the video of the shooting done by #Vogue with #Zelensky. It had thousands of views & many outraged reactions. I've read #ZelenskyVogue so you don't have to. A thread. Basically in social psychology, it's called #brand affiliation. We are talking about an/1
elaborate set up done by people like me #spindoctors #profilers #PR #stratcom experts. #Zelensky himself is an actor, so nothing is left unattended neglected in shaping his image, from clothes to his unshaven look, set up of the photo sessions. His metamorphosis from the nice/2
entertainer for #Ukraine television to #wartime #president is a deliberate, crafted process. Experts are continuously looking for ways to adjust his image to new circumstances, by affiliation, linking it to other symbols, because at the end of the day people get tired of every/3

"Argument-Making in the Wild"

Today's SFI Seminar by Simon DeDeo (@LaboratoryMinds), streaming now. Follow our thread for pull quotes and slides:

First, let's divide human history into three eras, or regimes of #knowledge #production and #consumption:

• #premodern/#archaic
• #modern + #postmodern
• the #egregore (online content sharing)

• The premodern era is defined by caloric restriction.
• The modern era is characterized by a small number of sellers of #information vs. a large number of consumers (see also #HerbertSimon's remarks on the "poverty of #attention")

Exactly 7 years ago, I spent #StrokeAwarenessDay undergoing emergency #thrombectomy for #basilar artery occlusion. #BAO

Today, I'm still in awe and celebrating how #modern #medicine saved me from locked-in syndrome and enabled me to live a normal life, against all odds.

2/ So far, I have avoided sharing this information as part of my professional life, fearing it would somehow disqualify me as a credible clinician-scientist. Finally, I realize that the experience only strengthened my resolve to give future patients the second chance I was given.
3/ What happened in brief:

I was a healthy, 25yo medical student, all excited to have finished the first 10K run of my life not even 5 hours before my family reacted #FAST and called 911.

As in all fields in the digital age, the new trends have emerged in the field of education. Turkish Maarif Foundation follows the new trends very closely to provide better education, as can be seen from the title chosen by the foundation for #IstanbulEducationSummit.

This morning I read the phrase "legacy Power BI" on the site of a "modern" tool, which uses SQL as a query language.

With all respect, marketing hype should understand when their words become counterproductive.

#powerbi #sql #mdx #dax #sequel #legacy #modern

I know hundreds of issues and limitations in Power BI, but when it comes to comparison, I can hardly understand why "moving data" should be considered "legacy".

How do you call any "caching" mechanism?
What is an "index" if not a copy of data?
Seriously, do you know business users who really care about how many copies of the data are around the world?

A real story of #modern medicine & #Ayush

Sad wen the former messes things up

24 yr male - overweight by 11kg. Routine check up - fatty liver/advised by GP 2 stop eating - yes he said stop eating, eat when hungry or he'll develop cirrhosis +

So the guy gets food phobia - loses 2 much weight in 2 months - close to 12 kg - rechecks liver test - AST and ALT enzymes are higher than before - fellow is sure its 2 late and he is going to develop cirrhosis - so he goes 2 a Gastroenterologist at a suburban clinic +
#ethics
3/
Gastro doc does his ultrasound liver - sees grade 3 fatty liver frm prev Grade 1 - says its bad (on radiological assessment). Liver tests show AST 200 ALT 102. Patient repeatedly asks if he had developed cirrhosis
No answer (a silent doctor is either a fool or thinking one) +

Madhumardan contains 32 herbs.
Yes. 32 herbs. It's just crazy. 32 herbs. I can't get over this. Website mentions no side effects. Human #health has no value in #AYURVEDA. This is the truth about the #science of #life which is actually science of #business. Harmful BS.
3/
Pranada is a proprietary medicine. Look at indications for use. Dropsy, hydropsy and cirrhosis. What are these diseases which are totally different from each other, treated with same drug. Vague idiots. AGAIN, #PSEUDOSCIENCE OF BUSINESS. No regard 4 human health. Stupids.

#Ayurveda and #Homeopathy has no clinical efficacy, probably more unknown toxic effects, yet to be studied. Homeopathy is at best placebo. #MedTwitter
Thread by @drsnehilmishra is good diplomatic discussion, but not scientific.
👇👇👇 What contribution?
Modern medicine practitioners need to stop this comparison business and concentrate on their work at hand in improving the science they practice, through clinical or basic science based studies that are practice changing.
#pseudoscience #science #MedEd
They would have been treated for diseases that would be self limiting and improved without the need for medicine. This is anecdotal. Such statements can be used by #quacks and #frauds to defend their fraud practice becoz a #modern doctor said so. We need to be careful with words. Image

#Story of my journey from #Housewife to #SareeDraper
I started my career as a fashion stylist for ad-shoots. After I got married wore saree on regular basis as I love wearing saree and I respect the attire brought down by my grandmothers and mothers.

#SheInspiresUs
I took #career break because of random #shoot timings, got busy with my family and kids. I was a housewife and used to get many compliments for the way I wore #sarees .

I used to help people #drape saree and so they started recommending me to others, this is how I realized To change this passion into profession. Saree is classic Indian attire and has perennial and eminent history and I want to popularize the art of perfect saree draping.
