🎨⏳📜Nautilus Cup, Chicago Art Institute
During the Age of Discovery, European artists were inspired by the exotic materials suddenly available to them. Goldsmiths seized on the opportunity to include wondrous and seemingly magical materials -
-including coconuts, ivory, ostrich eggs, and, in this case, a nautilus shell from the Indian Ocean - into works of art that celebrated both nature and artifice. These types of objects were also popular with collectors during the 19th c, when the mounts on this cup were reworked.

Der #CoronaMythos
1 Erst hieß es, das Problem seien die #Intensivstationen, die Überlastung des Gesundheitssystems.
Ja: Es wurde seit Jahren der #Pflegenotstand sehenden Auges verursacht und verschärft, dagegen hilft aber kein #lockdown, keine #Grundrechte-einschränkungen,

Danke für das Format, für die Aufmerksamkeit @officiallyjoko & @damitdasklaas

Es wird Zeit. Die #DritteWelle ist da & viele der Kollegen sind dank jahrelangem #pflegenotstand schon lange am Limit.
Die Pandemie traf uns im #yearofnurseandmidewife
Wenn ihr jetzt denkt, "super Anlass, mal richtig in die Pflege zu investieren&die Bedingungen zu verbessern" weit gefehlt. Stattdessen wurde quasi sofort die #PPUG ausgesetzt - ein Instrument zum Schutz (!) von Patienten & vor Überlastung der Pflege

The GOOD news is that, as of lunchtime yesterday,instead of having to kayak upriver, paddling hard against the strong Current, and then trudging up a steep slippery slope to get to the cars (yes we retrieved my car from 5 km's away where I left it 10 days ago), now we take the
Farm car to Angle Creek (1km) and then walk down a thick muddy slope, wade through the creek and climb the bank on the other side to get to our cars 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 so now I have been to town, got some library books & fresh fruit & veg (yay!) the dog has had an op to remove a grass
Seed, been to group therapy and had acupuncture needles stuck in my sore leg (bliss).

Having been to the big smoke I can report that women are LIVID with this govt, I have never seen such collective rage across the spectrums of age and sociology economy, and the elderly folks

People ask why I'm not going out for daily wheelwalk since I'm "allowed" under Shielding.

Quick answer. Too many people: can't Social distance #DisabilityTwitter

What Govt say about Shielding is very different to what medical pros advise.

We've been told....

A thread Longing for woodland Wheelwalks without worrying About the p
1. We need to stay socially distanced from everyone.

But that's not possible on footpaths when people won't give wheelchair users space. So that means wheelwalks aren't possible here where space is limited

#shielding #SocialDistancing #WheelchairUser
2. Stay shielding until 3 weeks after 2nd vaccine
This was in our Shielding letter Dec 20. But has been dropped now that Govt want to open up and not support shielders. scientists and medical experts say we need to stay safe until fully vaccinated so most will continue.

Een draadje over de #coronamaatregelen

Beste medemensen,

Wij bevinden ons nu in ca. week 54 van de '2 weken om de curve af te vlakken, dus is het de hoogste tijd om eens nuchter onder de loep te nemen hoe succesvol de maatregelen zijn om de verspreiding te voorkomen.

1/20
We kunnen er kort over zijn. Nergens in de wereld, ongeacht de strengheid en striktheid van de maatregelen, is vast komen te staan dat de #coronamaatregelen een significante impact hebben gehad of nog gaan hebben op de verspreiding ook al voer je deze tot het uiterste door.

2/20
Noch '#SocialDistancing', ongeacht hoeveel meters en centimeters je aanhoud, noch #mondkapjesplicht, noch '#blijfthuis' adviezen, noch het #thuiswerken, noch het staken van de reguliere zorg of welke maatregel dan ook heeft een bewezen impact gehad op de coronaverspreiding.

COVID-19 cases are rising exponentially in #Islamabad and Pakistan. All Federal Government departments are doing their best to contain the spread. It is our duty as citizens to follow SOPs. We urge you to:
#WearAMask
#WashYourHands
Maintain #SocialDistancing
#vaccinate
Please #WearAMask to protect yourselves and your loved ones. This is the first line of defence against the coronavirus pandemic. Image
Please #WashYourHands properly, and inculcate good hygiene habits especially in children. Before and after meals, while touching unclean objects or objects touched by others such as doors, handles, windows and aisles. Stay safe. Image

.@VP @KamalaHarris notes trip to #Georgia was supposed to be about #AmericanRescuePlan. But then, Asian-Americans were attacked/8 people killed.

"And we were reminded yet again that the crises we face are many that the photos we face are many."

"#Racism is real in America."
.@VP @KamalaHarris: For the last year we've had people in positions of incredible power scapegoating Asian-Americans. People with the biggest pulpits spreading this kind of hate.

#Georgia #racism
.@VP @KamalaHarris: A harm against any one of us is a harm against all of us.

The president and I will not be silent. We will not stand by. We will always speak out against violence, hate crimes & discrimination, wherever and whenever it occurs.

Dr. Scott Atlas-
The coronavirus pandemic has also exposed profound issues in America that now threaten the very principles of freedom and order that we Americans often take for granted.

Dr. Scott Atlas-
First, I have been shocked at the enormous power of the government, to unilaterally decree, to simply close businesses & schools by edict, restrict personal movement, mandate behavior, & eliminate our most basic freedoms, without any end & little accountability.
Dr. Scott Atlas-
Second, I remain surprised at the acceptance by the American people of draconian rules, restrictions, and unprecedented mandates, even those that are arbitrary, destructive, and wholly unscientific.

1. Why we have to go for #ZeroCovid Now.
2. The #coronavirus is so dangerous that 200 million people would have died in 2020 if we did not take preventative measures like #lockdowm, #SocialDistancing, and wearing #masks. Let me explain why, and why we have to remain extremely vigulent.
3. When the #coronavirus arrived in most countries, the number of #covid19 cases were doubling every 3 to 4 days. It is currently 101 days worldwide, but most highly infected countries are in lockdown.

@IsaKriens heb ik normaal best hoog zitten, maar mensen wat valt zij voor mij van haar troon door onderstaande brief van @rubenbontekoe als 'voorbeeldbrief' aan te bevelen. Ruben claimt in de 'brief' aan Huge de Jonge 'het recht om zelf na te denken'. Het is alleen de vraag 1/10
wanneer Ruben dat dan gaat doen want ik werd steeds onpasselijker hoe verder ik in Ruben's 'brief' las. Ruben snapt namelijk iedere maatregel die ons opgelegd wordt van hogere hand. #SocialDistancing? Uiteraard is dat nodig, aldus Ruben. Nevermind dat het wetenschappelijk 2/10
absolute lariekoek is. #Mondkapjes? Ook hiervan snapt Ruben dat deze nuttig, misschien wel noodzakelijk zijn. En nee, het is niet dat hij deze regeltjes zonder enig verzet accepteert hoor... Want onze verzetsheld gaat wel eens expres niet op maar naast een blauwe stip staan! 3/10
