False Sense of Security: A Thread from DeNet Co-Founder @djdeniro1 on Ledger's Recent Scandal

Introduction to the subject >…

#cryptonews Image
Ledger's key #recovery feature discredits its security by possibility of device reprogramming. Unclear how this is achieved - through exportation of #private keys or seed phrases (should be stored #encrypted) or with six-digit password protection (can be easily hacked)
Centralized recovery process offered by Ledger implies that the company views its users as uninformed market participants who will welcome this service.

#Recovery from mental health challenges is a journey, not a destination. It requires self-awareness, treatment, support, and resilience. But with each step forward, hope and healing are possible. Image
🌳 Acceptance: Acceptance of the mental health condition and its impact on life is the first step towards recovery.
🌳 Self-awareness: Develop self-awareness to recognize symptoms and triggers, and to develop coping strategies.

15 yrs ago, while hiking on my own, I was violently assaulted & raped. Every anniversary, I go for a solo hike to remind myself I can still do it, that there is great beauty to be found, even after trauma. Here’s today’s hike. And my essay I always post 👉 ImageImage

Can alcohol consumption affect muscle growth?

A thread 🧵👇

#alcohol #muscleproteinsynthesis #recovery Image
Exercise and protein ingestion are the main factors that stimulate muscle protein synthesis (the main process driving muscle adaptations such as growth).

2/ Image
It has been reported that athletes are more likely to consume excessive amounts of alcohol, especially as part of binge-drinking practices in team sports. Can these practices affect muscle protein synthesis?

Alberta is light years ahead of us on drug treatment and #recovery. But, there's always hope for change. "With free addiction treatment, recovery is possible." #SanFrancisco Image
10,000 treatment spaces coming on line in Alberta 🇨🇦. If only #California would invest in addiction treatment this way. @GavinNewsom Image
Medically assisted treatment as part of the continuum of care to help sustain recovery from addiction and overcome withdrawals from drugs like Fentanyl. They have it all. Image

1/🧵Your brain “on COVID”🧠
Let’s integrate >20 studies on #LongCOVID neuropathology
My 24 y/o patient explained: “I don’t have a future because I can’t think anymore.”
Let’s talk:
Autopsy Studies
Viral persistence
Brain Size & Disability
Recovery & Hope

H/T pic 👁️ tw 13 Image
2/ Autopsy Data 🧠

Despite initial improvement from COVID, these (N=27) pts got progressively sicker & died

From their autopsies, the authors found “SARS-Cov-2 infection persisted significantly longer than suggested by standard PCR-negative tests.” ImageImage
3/ Brain donation from 1st wave COVID patients (N=9) shows widespread endothelial activation, microclots & platelet aggregation supporting COVID as a vascular disease that yields real brain pathology.

1/🧵 Real-World Long COVID
🔹She got COVID Oct 2020
🔹59 y/o walked 5mi 4x /wk
w no prior cognitive problems
🔹“I got better but 4 mo later my memory faded. I struggled.
🔹HR came after me, ‘You can’t do your job.’”
Husband: “I want my wife back!”

(Pics & story w perm)
2/ Could her new #dementia be unrelated to COVID?

Maybe, but…
Her excellent neurologist feels her negative work-up, young age, speed of demise, temporal onset in relation to COVID all fit LongCOVID-related brain dysfunction & not a pattern of Alzheimers.
They want to share
3/ Husband through tears: “I want my wife back.”
Her Description – “I walk down the hall & see pictures of family & trips. I feel like a ghost because I don’t remember. My husband cries because I seem gone to him.”
“I’m trying to figure out who Barbara 2.0 is going to be.”

The Pakistani government has decided to use all legal means to recover PKR 447 billion in unpaid Gas Infrastructure Development Cess (GIDC) from commercial and industrial entities.

Read 🧵 below 👇
The Supreme Court of Pakistan ordered the recovery of all GIDC accrued by 2020-21 and suspended future GIDC until all outstanding amounts were recovered. However, 3,194 petitions in various high courts are hindering the recovery of PKR 420 billion.
The government may also lose the power to collect GIDC if it fails to carry out development projects, such as pipelines from Turkmenistan, Iran, or from Karachi to Lahore, depending on the international and political environment.

EU source: law implementing the global deal on minimum taxation is taken off today’s @EUCouncil agenda, but the Hungarian #revovery plan will be discussed in a non-public session
The proposal under the #RuleofLaw conditionality procedure against #Hungary is also taken off today’s agenda➡️no decision today about freezing €7,5bln cohesion money to Hungary
@EUCouncil No deal on the aid to #Ukraine either: 26 member states are for, #Hungary is still against. This means no approval today of the Hungarian #recovery plan

#Food #addiction #recovery is about much more than the food.
We have been ‘using’ food as drug to make us feel better. Sugars, grains and processed foods give our brains
in unnatural amounts
The ‘feel good’ neurotransmitters.
A thread
If we don’t learn new ways to balance these brain chemicals naturally we are more likely to relapse at times of temptation, stress, loneliness, boredom or sadness. This means building some new habits.

How will you get your daily DOSE? ⬇️
The neurotransmitter of motivation, reward & MORE. Drives cravings. We can get dopamine from accomplishing tasks, exercise & doing unpleasant things like a cold plunge! Listen to Anna Lembke on the food junkies or read her book for more info.…

1/🧵 Update on Long COVID Prevention‼️

Do meds & vaccines ⬇️ #LongCOVID risk?

1st meet @pamelarbishop, a scientist in forced early retirement due to LC:

“I oscillate between fierce determination to get better & abject horror at the daily destruction of my body."

read on…
2/ A case-control study of 9k unhospitalized COVID pts treated w Paxlovid btwn March & June 2022 versus 47k patients w no antiviral or antibody treatment.

All >= 1 risk factor for hospitalization.

The results are surprising if you think about it.

3/ It’s NOT a randomized trial, so we don’t know why people did or didn’t get Paxlovid.

In practice, we givemeds more aggressively (or want them ourselves) if we’re sicker.

So you might think those who didn’t take Pax would be less sick & do better. That’s not what was found…

Do you know that 2020 and 2022 are the two worst years for #poverty reduction since at least 1990? Why?

The pandemic dealt the largest setback to global-poverty reduction efforts. (1/4)
The #income losses of the world’s poorest were twice as high as the world’s richest in 2020.

The poorest also faced large setbacks in #health and #education, with devastating consequences, including premature mortality, and pronounced learning losses. (2/4)
Extreme #poverty is concentrated in parts of the world where it will be hardest to eradicate:
- in Sub-Saharan Africa,
- conflict-affected areas,
- and in rural areas. (3/4)

Peace yall, 

Some comrades and I are hosting an AA meeting every Wednesday for Black, Indigenous, and people of Color (BIPOC) who want to stop drinking and/or drugging. Details for the meeting are in the graphics below. ImageImageImage
This meeting will be a place to read and discuss the BIPOC, working-class, and leftist roots of the 12 steps and push back against conservative and neoliberal traditions that claim to be the only history of AA and the steps.
Left-wing and right-wing cultural, spiritual, and behavioral science traditions went back and forth to create AA and the 12 step programs.

It took my legs a few minutes to warm up this morning, but glad to report that long morning walks remain easy, in contrast to later in the day. #Totnes is waking up beautifully ☀️
5 miles walked this morning, with no adverse effects. Then strimmed & mowed a lawn. Great to not be worried about my heart and lungs as I got a real workout from the gardening. However, I'm mindful of the warnings of some with #LongCovid that I should continue to pace myself.

1/🧵🎥 How do “Dominoes of life” fall in critical illness⁉️

A pt arrives awake & talking but vomiting. In just 8 hrs he nearly dies of sepsis 🤯

Lung & kidney failure, heart attack, coma.

How can this happen & can we save him?

This🧵can help us understand the “arc of illness”
2/ His disease is Ascending Cholangitis

A gall stone lands in his common bile duct

📍Pain & vomiting
📍He’s admitted to the ICU
📍GI performs an ERCP to place a stent, bypass the stone, drain pus & control the source of sepsis
📍Add fluids & antibiotics
📍But he gets worse
3/ We bypassed the septic source (stone) & drain the pus, but dominoes were already falling.

Bacteria had gotten into his blood.

Too much inflammation & capillary blood clotting occurred, just like in COVID.

What happens when “cellular” dominoes start to fall uncontrollably?

Let's talk about #Tether - THREAD

Start with ew fun facts from their rules for using the #Tether services 🤡

Thread 🧵⬇️

In Tether's terms of service we can find information that #Tether doesn't have to buy back $USDT tokens, should anyone wish to exchange them back into $USD, if it does not want to.
The terms state that Tether reserves the right to delay the redemption of tokens at a time if such a delay is necessary due to lack of #liquidity, unavailability, or loss of any reserves held by Tether to support USDT Tokens.

Finishing this book presents a major milestone in my life. You see, approximately 6.5 years ago I was found in a pool of my own blood in a parking lot. I ended up in the ICU with a traumatic brain injury. Here’s what I did to reclaim my cognitive function - a 🧵 1/n
The thing about brushes with death (my particular TBI has a ~90% mortality rate) is that they have a powerful clarifying function. Some of the initial thoughts I had was that I :
a - wanted to achieve fluency in French
b - wanted to really embrace Infosec

There was a small problem though. I was dumber than a bag of hammers. After about six months of recovery - I could barely read a children’s book. It’s not that I didn’t know the words. It’s that they all came at me at once.

1) How I cured my #LongCovid in 3mos after suffering for almost a year. This was my last hope. I researched what #Covid does to the body, came up with a list of "clinically studied" supplements and...
2) took them all. Firstly, I am not a MD. In March 2021 I caught Covid while working as a #frontline #healthcare worker. My symptoms of #brainfog, #fatigue, #jointpain, #muscleweakness, morning #stiffness happened after my recovery. At the time, this #postcovid #syndrome was...

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.

1/ 🧵
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.

Almost relapsed on 🥃 when passed over by the Columbus, OH @DeptVetAffairs along with other protected #Veterans. A Civilian Social Work Director bypassed all Veteran Interns serving there for 12 months for another Civilian hire. Medical Marijuana saved my life @lastprisonerprj
This was after surviving 2 deployments in Iraq, an RPG blast, being shot at through a door I was breaching and using Veteran benefits to put myself through school receiving my MSW. The VA still let a qualified and disabled veteran social worker fall through the cracks.
I decided to join National Youth Advocate Program and provided thousands of hours of assessment, therapy, resources and aftercare services impacted by sexual, physical, emotional and verbal trauma. This triggered my PTSD bad, but I fought through it to be there with my clients.

It has been an honour to walk alongside my friend & colleague of 21 years @BinitaKane & her daughter Jasmin on their courageous & inspiring journey. #LongCovid in adults children is real & serious. There are treatments available- sadly only for a fortunate few #TeamClots 1/n
(Everything I say is with the express permission of @BinitaKane). Jasmin is not the only child with #LongCovid who has been shown to have microclots & hyperactivated platelets. They are a consistent finding in kids & adults who have travelled for treatment to Germany & SA 2/n
Globally 100m are affected by this vile illness. In the U.K. alone this figure is estimated to be 1.8m, with 2/3rds reporting an adverse impact on their daily activities. 1% of primary & 2.7% of secondary school children fulfilled the criteria for #LongCovidKids 3/n
