As a Survivor of #GunViolence and a Trauma Surgeon at @hopkinsmedicine, I’ve seen this public health crisis from numerous vantage points.

Despite my own experience, nothing prepares you when the person you have to take care of is one of your own.

After walking in for Trauma call this AM, my colleague called with the most unexpected message.

Joe, are you on call?


Our fellow trauma surgeon was just shot and he is on his way to the trauma center.

Listening to that communication, I was frankly numb and in disbelief.
Realizing this was not some bad #AprilFoolsDay joke, I quickly gathered my things and headed down to the trauma bay to prepare the team.

As we gathered our incredible multi-disciplinary team, I could feel my heart racing not knowing exactly what type of injuries we would face.

Contrary to your immediate reaction to the below thread, this is not an #AprilFoolsDay joke.

Two years ago today was the first instance where I had police called on me. The first time I (unknowingly) exercised my civic duty

It started on an empty beach
All indoor and outdoor playgrounds were closed. Schools were closed. Every indoor space apart from grocery stores were also closed. Open, outdoor public spaces were literally the only thing left.
I took 5 children to a local pebble beach to skip rocks. This exceeded the “law” - only groups of 4 people were permitted outdoors at a time

We ran into a friend and her 2 children, chatted for ~10 minutes while the kids ran around for the first time in 3 weeks.

Patchwork - a #saida oneshot

"So, this is how it ends, huh?" Sana asked, eyes shut, unable to look at Dahyun.

"We gave it our best, didn't we?"

Sana nodded. ImageImageImage
"...You left a mark. I wear it proudly on my chest, above my heart, to remind me that I feel the best when I'm with you..."

Give the song a listen. It may or may not have anything to do with plot. 🙂 Image
Quick note: will be posting this little thing tomorrow. It'll still be #AprilFoolsDay in California and #saida day so technically I'm not late hehe ☺ Anyhoo, I got work in the morning and it's almost 12:30AM. See ya! 😉 I'll keep it short this time.

We are delighted to have been included in @intifada's #AprilFoolsDay article and have a number of corrections to make which will follow (as expected) with a thread.

We are also grateful to them for assisting our SEO.
We have been totally misunderstood. Firstly, we are not recent. Secondly, we were set up in response to our Vice Chancellor @RichardBurgon's call for a Tony Benn University of Political Education as part of his 2020 Deputy @UKLabour Leadership Campaign.…
We'd also like to thank @intifada for confirming they attempted to get our account restricted (which lasted about 30 minutes). It is a shame as we are all on the same side. We all believe teenage Jews are foreign spies.…

37.01/ Week 37, March 29-April 2, 2021, thread begins here.

Week 36 is linked below
37.02/ This looks like a fruitful account. This particular entry has an intro that displays a kindred spirit IMO

37.03/ While I'm grateful that Coca-Cola has gone through the trouble to make their products kosher for #Passover, I cannot understand drinking Diet Coke willingly. Honestly, if unlabeled, I'd assume it was some drug-store's generic cola.

TL;DR: Diet coke is nasty.

#OTD in 1989, First Lady Barbara Bush decided to pull an #AprilFoolsDay prank on the guests at the annual Gridiron Club Dinner – an event where journalists join the president and first lady and joke about politics. 1/6
The dinner was slated for the first of April, so Mrs. Bush jumped at the chance to surprise the dinner guests. The first lady decided to make a joke using one of her signature features—her hair. 2/6
Barbara Bush’s famous white hair was the subject of fashion articles and interviews throughout the Bush administration, and became part of her image, along with her classic white pearls. 3/6

On this #AprilFoolsDay, recounting some instances from #Parliament which had us fooled in the last one year:

1. Delaying discussing #FinanceBill for almost a week and then passing it without discussion in #LokSabha, because #Parliament had to be shut due to #COVID outbreak
2. On last day of curtailed #BdgetSession in #RajyaSabha, 7 Money Bills were returned in 5 hours, with 2 Appropriation Bills and all 154 clauses and 5 schedules of Finance Bill put to vote together without any discussion and cleared in 5 minutes

3. Sending #DataProtection Bill to specially constituted Joint Parliament Committee headed by a BJP MP instead of already existing Standing Committee headed by an Opposition MP

Long Thread [Alert]

1/n Something big is up at @binance. First @Poloniex, then @steemit and now @CoinMarketCap. If we go by the reported news on the @TheBlock__ , this could be worth $400 Million. Assuming that it is not an #AprilFoolsDay prank...…
2/n Over the last 12 months, @cz_binance has acquired at least three companies - @BinanceJEX, @WazirXIndia, and @dapp_review. Looking at the big picture, it is a notable development as @cz_binance mops up the key players in the #decentralized fundraising space
3/n If you're looking to develop a #dapp, your best best is soon going to be the #Binance Blockchain. Why? Because it tacitly lets #developers know that it has the most well-oiled machinery in the much muddied #crypto space.

Italy, UK, Spain, France took part in poignant clapping tributes. They went to their doorsteps & windows outpouring gratitude. Healthcare workers were applauded worldwide.
As millions of people were in voluntary isolation or lockdown, the clapping was a sign of raised spirits/1
On the other hand, Brazil erupted to the sound of banging pots and pans and shouts of "Bolsonaro out!" with housebound protesters expressing their anger toward the President. This was their way of un-bottling their pent-up frustration./2
In India, after indulging in all important events of kemcho Trump, Delhi riots, MP Govt toppling, (I might have missed out a few) Modi gave a 29 minute speech on #coronaviruspandemic urging people to express gratitude thru #ThaliBajao. Gratitude to whom??? Noone asked/3
