[#Thread histoire] A. Lemoine, sismologue au BRGM, nous raconte la découverte du #volcan sous-marin de #Mayotte ⬇️
Tout a commencé pour notre équipe en mai 2018. L’île de Mayotte, où le BRGM possède une représentation locale, subit des dizaines de #séismes depuis quelques jours.
Mon unité est appelée « à la rescousse » par la représentation locale à #Mayotte. L’un de mes collègues, D. Bertil, soupçonne vite un essaim de #séismes. Celui-ci est sans précédent par sa durée et son intensité.
#thread #storytime
En juin 2018, les secousses ne se calment pas, bien au contraire. Des dizaines de #séismes sont ressentis par la population de plus en plus inquiète. Si, pendant l’été, une baisse d’activité est observée, les séismes recommencent fin août.

#Storytime At the beginning of COVID.
There was so much we didn’t know. 💡
Some people didn’t even believe in the virus, but there was that moment.
Where you and I could no longer ignore it was real
But, When did Coronavirus Become Real?
#ShareTheMicNowMed @typicallysilent
When I think about where we are now, I almost forget what life was like before...
Before masked faces became commonplace, and social distancing pulled us 6 ft away from each other. Before we became well adjusted to awkward elbow taps and daily zoom chats.
But when did coronavirus actually, become a real thing?
When did it go from being some external far off threat to right outside my front door?
To inside the hospital.
To on the other side of the anteroom?
When did it go from being one of the many distant threats,

"We in medicine have been slower to appreciate the power of anecdotes and stories... tools for public communication, education and professionals must be aware of and, if relevant to their careers, competent in not only clinician-patient and scholarly communication but also this new modality that I call public medical communication."

[THREAD]: Mahamud Tawane has always known the value of work. As a boy in Garissa, Kenya, he would spend his school holidays working at his father’s cotton farm, cultivating and harvesting. At the end of the day, he would be paid per kilo of his harvest.
In his final year of secondary school, Tawane had a friend who read plenty of magazines and narrated his readings to him. On one occasion, Tawane’s friend told him about an ongoing admission at a flying school in Kansas.
Without hesitation, Tawane applied and within a short duration received a response. However, the reply was not as pleasing as he would have hoped.The fee was simply unimaginably unaffordable.

At the time, Tawane lived with his older brother who happened to also be his guardian.

[THREAD] : While other kids in Lusoi Primary School in Nyeri played regular games, Samuel Mwaura Muthinji spent his time creating aircraft models from iron sheets. Muthinji was fascinated by how huge heavy metallic objects floated in the air and moved from one point to another. Capt. Samuel Muthinji sits in the Dash 8-Q400 cockpit.
His enchantment for flying came at a tender age and he then developed an utmost adoration for flying. After completing his primary school in Nyeri, Muthinji enrolled in Moi Forces Academy near the Moi Air Base in the Eastleigh suburb for his secondary education.
Everyday, when coming out of class heading to the dormitory, Muthinji observed the landing of the aircraft at the nearby Air Base. He made a vow to his peers that one day one time he will become a pilot.

Well. Boys and girls. Buckle your seatbelts.

Uncle Beans got a #StoryTime for you.
I came in to work today feeling good. I had two much needed days off from work where I did absolutely nothing, ate good, and rested. My body was rested, my mind recalibrated, and my spirit high. I was ready for whatever this shift had in store for me.

Or so I thought.
So I hit the road and I’m out proactively patrolling. I hit the local spots that we usually find kids hanging out and causing trouble, but they’re all empty. Perfect. I get a few minor calls that I settle without incident. Im feeling good.

I should know by now that this is bad.

There is a story the bees used to tell, which makes it hard to disbelieve. #Storytime
On the edge of a great desert, where the wind blew incessantly from the east, there lived a cruel, tyrannical king. #Storytime
He lived in a golden palace surrounded by beautiful gardens, encircled all around by a wall, for this king, remarkable only by his tyranny and selfishness, had grown increasingly fearful as he entered his dotage. #Storytime

I wanted to share another fitness stories. #StoryTime

Last year when I climbed the Grouse Mountain, I used an app called All Trails to track the hike up, record the elevation gains, my pace up the mountain and how much energy I was expending to do the hike. #Thread 1/n
After using the app that one-time last year, I didn't think much of it. This was back in August. And as the year went by, I continued to make immense gains with my fitness. I was for the most part walking and taking public transport, so my commutes even involve a workouts.
By end of last year, I started thinking about quantifying my walking as I went about my day. I quickly remembered that app, from when I did the Grouse Grind (that's the proper name for the hike up the mountain).

October 2019, I had just moved to Lekki Phase 1 from Iba.

First time staying on my own in Lagos and I really needed a fridge because buying food daily was expensive & I don't like cooking everyday.

I was in Ebeano Phase 1 with a friend and while at the check out line, I saw a line up of brand new mini refrigerators and the price then was N70k ish.

I started to think..

"I can afford this fridge. All I need is 2 extra Social Media Management clients"
Someone close to me laughted.

I didn't know I was thinking aloud.

In that moment, 2016 flashed before my eyes.

You see, 2016 was the worst year of my life.

I’m, as a parent, trying to do the next right thing. So I stepped into the unknown - my teens room, to clean it up today. I’ve tried before telling her that love is an open door, but she could never fully do that with all the crap in her room. 1/many... #QuarantineLife #teens
It’s a bit of a fixer upper, that’s for sure. I’ve let it go for long enough. She said she’d do it in summer, but I really never believed her. Once I started cleaning there were things there that had missing for months. 2/many... #QuarantineLife #cleanroom #teens
I thought to myself that all is found, and as I was pleased, I continued on. I know when all is said & done, it could end up looking the same, because some things never change. But if I sense it is returning to its former wretched state, I’ll tell her to show yourself. 3/many..

I'm curled up in a window-seat at #Toksvigs, with a big mug of tea and some freshly-baked croissants. Anyone for #Storytime?

There once was a man who had never felt love. While other young men sighed over broken hearts, he sat aloof and indifferent. #Storytime

#storytime it’s #BlackHistoryMonth and I want to tell you all a little HIStory about my son. He is 14.5 years old and has an internship at Google. He is diagnosed with ADHD at 6 and has an IEP. I am going to tell you about systemic racism 1st hand.
At @SuccessCharters he went to their whitest location at the time (and still maybe) Upper West. He went there from 2011-2014. It was ran by predominantly white staff that probably considered themselves liberal and not racist. He was denied all his mandated services.
Instead of helping my son they suspended him. I know you’re probably thinking what does this have to do with #BlackHistory Well one day someone is going to do some research and my child is going to come up. Because he left this “school” 6 years ago & people still reach out to us

Hoy quiero haceros un #storyTime de las veces que he sido ignorada y apartada en mi ex-trabajo por ser mujer 🙎‍♀️, de las reacciones de los demás y de sus contestaciones a mis quejas. No habrá odio, sangre ni desgracia, pero sí una pequeña dosis de realidad. Allé voy 👇
Para empezar, decir que me metieron en un proyecto con un compañero. Él y yo seríamos los encargados de crear una plataforma de gestión inteligente junto a un jefe de equipo (que por cierto no hablaba Español salvo "café" y "gracias", siempre en mi corazón).
A los meses, salió la primera demo de la plataforma. El jefe de equipo me pidió que redactase la documentación de las tecnologías de la plataforma, de cómo se instalaban, usaban y para qué servían, destinada a servir como guía a los futuros nuevos integrantes del equipo.

“What does a surgeon look like?”

A story for all ages, written by @JJcolemanMD , illustrated by @gracie_leo

#ilooklikeasurgeon #womeninmedicine #medtwitter #meded #foamed #storytime
Story thread below...
She woke up one morning and asked the Mirror, “What does a surgeon look like?”

But the Mirror did not answer.

She asked the World and asked “What does a surgeon look like?”

And the World did answer.
The World said,

“He is TALL and NOT small.”
“He is not too young or too old.”

Yagyavalkya was a great maharshi who has had God-realisation (called Jeevan muktas). He was living at the outskirts of Mithila whose king was Janaka highly spiritually oriented ruler.

Yagyavalkya was daily conducting satsang classes on Vedanta philosophy in the evening which was attended by a number of monks as also king Janaka. If Janaka were to be delayed due to urgent matters of State, the Satsang would not begin till Janaka came.

Other monks used to pass derogatory remarks – ‘‘Look at Yagyavalkya the great knower of Brahman. Even he wants to please the king as he provides him with all provisions and bears all the expenditure in connection with the maintenance of the Ashram.’’

Hace tiempo que no comparto un momento #storytime y me ha venido a la mente cuando fracasé terriblemente y perdí muchísimo dinero apuntándome a clases de coreano en Yonsei durante un verano. ¿Os cuento?
La cosa es que un verano cuando estaba viviendo en Corea decidí que ya que tenía el visado y el alquiler tenía que pagarlo igual, en vez de irme a España en verano me quedaría haciendo un intensivo de coreano para mejorar.
Tenía pensada otras universidades a decir verdad, pero después de hablar con amigos me dijeron que Yonsei era la más a tope y la que metía más caña con el coreano escrito y más académico, y más gramática, que era lo que yo quería porque con el coreano hablado me defendía.

There is a story the bees used to tell, which makes it hard to disbelieve. #Storytime
A flock of sheep who had left their farm had chosen a wolf as their leader. #Storytime
Two years later, some of the sheep were starting to regret their choice, as the lead wolf brought in more and more of his friends, all of them hungry and not at all averse to the odd haunch of mutton. #Storytime

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.
Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

The 24 hour (alternate reality) of a court hearing. 

Tomorrow I'll wake up and step into the bubble of adrenalin that will carry me through court date #52. 

First a quick scan of my phone to confirm all is going ahead as scheduled. 
During the day, discussions with NIcole & Elly to arrange what time they will arrive at mine, to be together like we are every court date. 
(I've got the best couch in the family) 
Israel wakes and the calls from reporters will begin at 3pm. 
I'll confirm with those who contact us - we are not in Israel now, we hope to be soon, we're available over Skype for interviews. 

I'll try to ignore my phone btw 4 - 5pm & spend time with my daughter before worry & adrenalin fully kick in.
