Wow
My mind is blown

Ayurveda's classical teaching from Charaka Samhita mentions
WHEN A DOCTOR MUST NOT TREAT A PATIENT

From Panchakarma, Sidhi Sthana

Sit back, think why this nonsense is still allowed in India

This is causing radicalization

Ayurveda Physician must not treat a patient who is

Cowardly
Fickle minded
Does not respect authority
Whom authority disrespects

🙏
Real science embraces all, everyone, even the incarcerated and is truly apolitical and is not ideally controlled by authority Image
3/5
Ayurveda Physician must not treat

Grieving patients
Patients who DONT BELIEVE IN GOD
Who are dying, end of life

🙏
Ayurveda does not believe in treating persons when they need help the most / doesn't treat atheists! / and has NO PRINCIPLES FOR PALLIATIVE CARE. Shameful Image

HILO sobre POR QUÉ LA EVOLUCIÓN ES REAL:

Llevaba un tiempo queriendo hacer un hilillo, y qué mejor que mostrando pruebas y argumentos para que podáis rebatir a los testigos de Jehová que llaman a vuestra puerta.

Let's gooo!
La evolución parece obvia ahora, pero sin embargo, hace un tiempo esto no era tan fácil de ver.
Para ver esta evolución, necesitábamos ver a las #especies cambiar con nuestros propios ojos, y eso era tremendamente difícil.
Para nuestra percepción, las especies son estáticas y no cambian con el tiempo, o al menos eso nos parece...😬 Los únicos organismos que podemos ver realmente "evolucionar" en vida son microscópicos, y lo que realmente cambia no es su aspecto (que también), si no su #ADN.

Un autre volet de ma #thèse est l’analyse isotopique. Grâce à celle-ci, on peut retracer la vie des #molécules : depuis leurs sources jusqu’à leur dépôt en passant par les réactions #chimiques qu’elles subissent dans l’#atmosphère.
Instant cours de #chimie 🤓: Deux isotopes sont deux #molécules ayant le même nombre de protons mais un nombre de neutrons différent : en gros, ce sont les mêmes #molécules mais une d’entre elles est plus lourde.
Petit rappel sur les isotopes dans cette vidéo 🎞 @lexploratoire
Sauf que chaque source de #pollution a tendance à émettre plus de molécules avec un certain poids, c’est un marquage isotopique, une sorte d’empreinte digitale.
Pour cela, on utilise un IRMS dans lequel un champ magnétique va dévier les molécules en fonction de leur masse.

Ce matin je vais vous parler #Climat, #pollution et #glaces 🥶 🥶
Un petit voyage sur les sommets 🏔, sur le continent Blanc 🇦🇶, vers l’infiniment petit 🔬 et dans le temps 🕰
On commence avec cette photo du forage sur l’Illimani, en Bolivie 🇧🇴

Le saviez-vous? Les glaciers renferment l’histoire du #Climat avec les couches de glace
Explication dans les prochains threads, mais avant un petit vote 🗳
En 2018, @icememory_ est parti forer le Belukha en Russie : quelle taille fait la carotte de glace ? Réponse en commentaire
Avec le #GlobalWarming, ces couches de neiges se mélangent et on perd ces informations sur l’#environnement du passé !!!
@icememory_ souhaite sauver cette information en forant des glaciers du monde entier

This is a really great and simplified explainer of covid_19's 'anatomy' & mechanism of host cell invasion.
Will add a few screenshots first & add link at end.

Note: This is an opinion article. Conclusion may be seen as controversial & meant for discussion. #science
"If the spike glycoprotein S1 or RBD immunogen is in the form of RNA-based vaccine, the RNA will penetrate every cell, & peptides of the S1 will be expressed on multiple cell types where the RNA has penetrated ->The danger is multiplied w/ a whole spike gp RNA/DNA construct"🧐

New variant tech briefing published today! assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/upl…

Today's R #tweetorial: The construction of this epicurve-in-an-epicurve, our first plot showing the increasing number of #DeltaVariant cases detected using sequencing AND genotyping. #Rstats #epitwitter
Genotyping with the reflex PCR involves looking for a combination of variant-specific mutations. Implementing genotyping surveillance has been a massive public health effort, and means a more complete, timely, yet alarming picture of Delta trends - but better we know!
To create the plot, we use ggplotGrob and annotation_custom, both ggplot2 functions. We combine an epicurve of daily Delta counts for the last 60 days with an inset of longer-term weekly counts. Here are the two ggplot objects seperately: [smallplot] (left) and [bigplot].

1/ When the world is chaos I find myself turning to nature, reflecting & often thinking too much...

#ASCO21 reminded me how a lot people know that Paclitaxel/Taxol, a gold standard chemotherapy agent for various cancers, was derived from the bark of the Pacific Yew Tree...🧵
2/ Taxus brevifolia, BUT people might not know that the part of the tree with the highest concentration of this molecule is the inner bark called the vascular cambial region & phloem.

This serves as a living tissue transporting minerals from the earth and sugar from its leaves
3/ As well as other nutrients & hormones throughout the tree.

What is really interesting is that this structure only lives for a short time, then dies and becomes part of the protective outer bark layer.

The antineoplastic molecule they found is in this tube of tissue.

A gist of what Dr #Fauci said last night in a Zoom chat abt #COVID19 & #science organised by @niemanfdn
A thread:
Asymptomatic transmission has been most worrying when it comes to the #pandemic. Interested to understand long #Covid going forward, the profound impact it can have.
#Science is a self corrected process but had been interpreted as flip-flopping. If you don't evolve with data you're doing something wrong.
People should not confuse #socialmedia for media which has no quality control. Classic #journalism hasn't changed. We are looking at a battle between distorters and truth-tellers.

Those who have knowledge, they say "Jay Shri #Krishna" or "Krishna Krishna", but not "#Radhe Radhe" or not even #RadheShyam

If you think you are very knowledgeable about #SanatanaDharma, then answer 4 questions:-

Follow the #Threads
1. According to #Sanskrit #Harivansa, Krishna left Vrindavan between the ages of 10 to 11 to kill Kangsa at Mathura, after which he never return to Vrindavan again. There is no evidence that Radha went anywhere outside Vrindavan. So when did the young #Radha meet young Krishna?
2. If anyone said that they fell in #love when they were children, then according to #science, a girl needs to be 13/14 yrs old and a boy needs to be 16/17 yrs old to have a feeling of love in their mind. So in this case, how two boy & girl of 10 yrs or less, fell in love?

‼️A report on the origins of #COVID19 by US govt national lab @Livermore_Lab says the hypothesis that the #coronavirus leaked from a Chinese lab in Wuhan is “plausible and deserves further investigation,” per people familiar with the classified document.

wsj.com/articles/u-s-r…
NOTHING will ever excuse Trump’s total negligence that led to hundreds of thousands of Americans needlessly dying from #COVID19.

Regardless, we must follow the #science and learn the TRUTH about how this deadly #coronavirus emerged.🧐
Numerous esteemed scientists, including Dr. Fauci, agree that the origins of #COVID19 must be FULLY investigated.

New #DIY #Science video - building a very simple (but working) ribbon microphone.

For one version I use #LEGO, aluminum foil, and hard drive magnets.



Not directly from #MacGyver - but related.
BTW - this website is great for recording and analyzing simple sounds

1/ Joining some wonderful people from what I am seeing as a diverse group of researchers at the #EditorialBoard of @PLOSGPH; journal has given itself the tall order of “addresses inequities in public health and makes impactful research accessible to all… (1/n) #Threads
2/ In words of @paimadhu "the journal will amplify the voices of underrepresented and historically excluded communities and prioritize equity, diversity, and inclusion at all levels"; I am highly skeptical of this,
3/ yet I am thrilled that a #PublicHealth journal would give itself such a vision; #Knowledge #Science #Evidence all reproduce the same kind of social hierarchies that drive unfair accumulation of resources in our society

This gentle man is Sir William Osler.. He has frequently been described as the “Father of Modern Medicine” and one of the "greatest diagnosticians ever to wield a stethoscope". What did he hv to say about #India ? @sanjeevsanyal @vipintukur @naveenthacker @EricTopol @mvankerkhove Image
His fascination for #India, The land of #Vishnu had no bounds..!! At each & every intellectual commentary he mentions about his interest in the values #India was known for @ProfSomashekhar @iapindia @IndianMedicalAs @MoHFW_INDIA @VirusesImmunity Image
In one of his essays; “Of India, of "Vishnu-land," what can one say in a few minutes? To the Hindoos we owe a debt which we can at any rate acknowledge; and even in medicine, many of our traditions and practices may be traced to them”. @drharshvardhan @PMOIndia @BharadwajSpeaks Image

پاکستان کی لبرل و سیکولر اشرافیہ کو “ #تصوف “ کا بہت شوق ہے مگر انہیں عمران خان صاحب و تحریک انصاف کا تصوف پسند نہیں ہے ۔ دونوں گروہ قدیم اور اصل صوفیاء کے یہ اقوال پڑھیں اور آنکھیں کھول لیں (بحوالہ قول الجمیل از شاہ ولی اللہ ) Image
جس #تصوف #سلوک و #طریقت کو مزاروں ، چلوں اور وظیفوں میں ڈھونڈا جاتا ہے وہ تصوف اور وہ صوفی صرف خدمت خلق میں ہے

#سعدی_شیرازی

طریقت بجز خدمت خلق نیست

بہ تسبیح و سجادہ و دلق نیست

“طریقت، خدمت خلق کے سوا کچھ اور نہیں ہے”

“یہ تسبیح اور سجادہ اور گدڑی سے (میں) نہیں ہے”
تصوف ، سلوک و طریقت یونیورسٹیوں سے نہیں درد دل سے ہے سائنس کو مذہب سے الگ رکھیں دونوں کو برباد کریگی یہ ملاوٹ - تصوف و سلوک و طریقت صرف یہ ہے 👇

درد دل کے واسطے پیدا کیا انسان کو

Covid-19: Social Murder, they wrote—elected, unaccountable, and unrepentant

BMJ 2021; 372 doi: doi.org/10.1136/bmj.n3… (Published 04 February 2021)

What went wrong in the global governance of #covid-19?
kabbasi@bmj.com
After two million deaths, we must have redress for mishandling the #pandemic
Murder is an emotive word. In law, it requires premeditation. Death must be deemed to be unlawful. How could “murder” apply to failures of a pandemic response?
Perhaps it can’t, and never will, but it is worth considering. When #politicians and #experts say that they are willing to allow tens of thousands of premature deaths for the sake of population immunity or in the hope of propping up the economy,

Das #Science-Paper vom Team um @c_drosten ist nach erster Durchsicht ein ziemlich großer Wurf. Da lohnt nochmal wirklich gründlich lesen, aber ganz viele Punkte bestätigen Wissen über Corona auf hohem Niveau. Ein paar der wichtigsten: (1/4) science.sciencemag.org/content/early/…
* Die Last an (kultivierbaren) Viren ist in Kindern zwar niedriger, aber nicht so sehr, dass das klinisch eine große Rolle spielt (außer evtl. bei der jünsten Gruppe zwischen 0 und 5, wobei hier auch die Probennahme schwieriger und vielleicht nicht direkt vergleichbar ist) (2/4)
* Etwa 9% der Fälle haben extrem hohe Virenlasten (potentielle Superspreader?), darunter waren 1/3 ohne oder mit leichten Symptomen (pre-symptomatic, asymptomatic, and mildly-symptomatic (PAMS))! (3/4)
