Dr. Chikwe Ihekweazu of the new @WHO Berlin coordinating center on pandemics, discussing future of pandemic prevention and control.

Here’s his summary of current threats. #ECCMID2022 @ESCMID
Ventilation in hall A is fantastic, by the way.

Important, because sars-2, and a variety of other respiratory pathogens, are airborne

#science
$28 thousand billion price tag in the sars-2 pandemic by 2025

Maybe worth investing a few billion more each year in global public health?

Well, I got 2 messages before 9am from friends telling me they have #COVID19 in their households. And in the 12 mins since, I’ve just heard about 4 more. So Merry Exponential Growth #Omicron #Christmas. 🌲 😫

A quick 🧵 on what to do if that’s you since I’m typing it anyway.
1/ The first thing to say is that if someone has #COVID19 symptoms (#Omicron most common: nasal congestion/runny nose, scratchy sore throat, fever, & aches), you have to assume they have it. You may not have a test (urgent cares are still open & do) or they may still be neg.
2/ You, as the person exposed to the one with symptoms, have to assume that you both do & don’t have #Omicron too. Wait, what? 🤔

I mean: assume you could infect others now & take care to avoid exposing them, BUT don’t assume it’s too late for you to avoid getting it.

Anyone who calls a socialist an enemy of ordinary people is an enemy of ordinary people – because socialism is precisely about protecting ordinary people.

Lie about that and what else will you lie about?

Anyone who calls a socialist an enemy of the economy is an enemy of the economy – because any fool knows the economy's real enemies are those who strip away its assets and hoard away its wealth.

Ok so I'm done with the write-up on the #RishtaTrolley System, a #TwitterSpace on which was hosted a couple hours ago by @fay_alif
Hang on guys, this is going to be lengthy (but super useful).

Thread:
1/
@fayalif recently hosted a space on the topic of #RishtaTrolley system, which first made me feel irked, but then curiosity (more like #FOMO) got the better of me.

So join, I did.
2/
Quite a few people were sharing their experiences, and opinions on a few related / sub topics as well. And it was a well managed space, maza aya to be part of this online baithak. This thread covers most of what was discussed and shared there.

“Violence,” you say, “is the last refuge of the incompetent.”
I can only agree. It’s a great saying. Whose is it?
“Isaac Asimov, I think. I’m not sure.”
The science fiction writer?
“Yes.”
I love the guy. He said a lot of great stuff. Have spacesuit. Will travel.

“No, that was Heinlein.”
Ah. Right-wing libertarian Heinlein. I loved a lot of his stuff, too. Starship Troopers. Stranger In A Strange Land. Shame he was a right-wing libertarian.

“He was probably ok with violence, too.”
Shifting back to the topic of violence….
“Shall we?”
Why not? I agree with you.
“With me or Isaac Asimov?”
Either. Both.

Global Citizen #storytelling w/ #Greta™️

Youth populations, largely impervious to #COVID19, should avoid the experimental jab at all costs.

#Commonsense over influencers serving capital.

Sidenote: #JohnsonandJohnson is a #GlobalCitizen core partner.
Q: "What is this content piece?"

A: "Our journalism-based, reported stories keep Global Citizens all over the world informed on the important advancements of achieving the #GlobalGoals."

"Global Goals", also known as UN #SDGs must be recognized/understood as #emergingmarkets.
The #WorldEconomicForum officially partnered with the United Nations on June 11, 2019. It now serves at the helm of implementation of the "#GlobalGoals".

#3: "Good #Health & Well-being". Trillions are riding on the vaccine market & future of #biotech. This chart is from 2016.

Lie about socialism and it’s likely you don’t give a f*** about ordinary people; you’re just a puppet of the establishment, a mouthpiece of the toffs.

The #Hungarian🇭🇺parliament has just adopted a new Constitutional admendment on marriage&family:

“The foundation of the family is marriage and the parent-child relationship.

[NEW:]The mother is a woman,the father is a man.”

This is how a postmodern rebellion looks like,I guess?
The above-quoted Section 1 also says:

#Hungary protects the institution of #marriage as the association between a #man and a #woman and the #family as the basis for the survival of the nation."

“Every high civilization decays by forgetting obvious things.” (G.K. Chesterton)
You keep asking me about the conditions of moving to Hungary.🇭🇺I can only encourage these noble intentions! Beautiful architecture,great wines,(almost completely) free of wokeness and (it's becoming a real plus,Western European friends will confirm) it's safe to walk at night too

1/ This kind of deliberately divisive and misleading headline about "woke foods" is transparent and deliberate misinformation. CTV is doing @erinotoole's propaganda work. Telling lies like this, promoting race hate and misinformation ought to be punished. Image
2/ Long story short: @WholeFoods tried to ban red poppy badges to support its (actually inexcusable) US ban on visible BLM support, and here, the media and their conservative paymasters are: lying, making it out to be 'leftist' #WokeFoods bullies trying to ban poppies. Image
3/ @fordnation is boycotting @WholeFoods , because "little people" should totally care that the scumbag #premier who won't protect Ontarians from small business and home evictions is boycotting @JeffBezos the insipid, guillotinable billionaire who exploits millions. Image

Here are some important interventional cardiology algorithms I've compiled over the past couple of years. The good IC/CTO operator always knows what the next step is. Major credit to @esbrilakis for many of these algorithms. Must think systematically about every PCI. 1/
Very nice algorithm on tough to wire vessels. Important techniques to know: Use of SuperCross (only use 120/they tend to straighten out), Hairpin wiring technique, deflection balloon, and probably most importantly, appropriate wire shape. 2/
A suggested algorithm on use of hemodynamic support in PCI. 3/

Police brutality is abhorrent, but #PsyOpBob played no innocent roll. Everybody there knew he wanted to cause trouble, and was calling him out. He brought a helmet, but did he put it on when the cops came? No, but he put on a mask. #BuffaloPD #SocialEngineering #CivilWar
I've seen many a #CrisisActor, but this guy is a like their stunt double. Sure, he probably did hit his head, but it was "all for the cause". I don't buy the fake blood thing. That would make the cops actors too...
which ain't that far of a stretch considering whackness out here.
I have no idea who to trust any more, but I definitely know who not to trust. So if this is going down, I'm going to support the guy who lets me defend myself form the #LiberalZombieApocalypse, with force if necessary.
I'm Packin' #MAGA for my protection.

I see these things all the time and simply don’t understand what’s going on with #LawEnforcement in the #UnitedStates at large. I have been in the Event Security business for 30 years. I also have 15 years of varying types of martial arts and hand-to-hand combat training...
This behavior by #MinneapolisPolice Officers is not about subduing a suspect, it’s about teaching a lesson. The Lesson is #compliance.

Here is how #GeorgeFloyd could have survived his detention and arrest:

- Yes, obviously: Get off his neck.
(Step by step, as follows)
Step 1- Use both hands to hold #GeorgeFloyd in place. By placing both hands in the middle of his back, just below his shoulders.
Keeping pressure on him and allowing the officer to change positions.

Step 2- If #GeorgeFloyd became combative, Officer #2 could have intervened...

"Don't make a political advisor not respecting the policies he officially advocates political" they say
As in "Where wld the world go if policy makers had to abide by what they advocate"?
Also -since when is it political not to be OK with someone willingly risking to kill others?
Since when is it OK for members of govt to try to peddle the "Oh but he had no other choice/It was the responsible thing to do" rhetoric?
Whatever version of the story, he had other choices, endangered others -starting with his own family- &went with a fake self-isolation story.

This is the United States of America!!! The PPE we need is not complicated. Open a factory today that can make reusable isolation gowns. Gowns can be laundered using standard hospital procedures. It’s not rocket science @JInterlandi @bschapiroMD
#2 surgical masks are simple things with elastic ear loops. I cannot believe that a medium sized factory couldn’t make a few million masks in a matter of days #notscarvesandbandanas
#3 Third essential is eye protection. Goggles, visors anything that prevents splashes to the eyes ?Welders masks again not hard to make. @CDCDirector @AnilRaiGupta @elonmusk Titans of industry we need you

Let me now share my thoughts on Equity Investing. Though current Equity Market crisis is attributed to CORONA VIRUS; according to me it is a combination of both CORONA VIRUS as well as excesses of the Equity markets over past 3 years due to Bubbles created thru excess Liquidity.
#MutualFund Industry has given 3 Mantras: Buy and Hold, SIP Karo Bhool Jao and Do Not Time the Markets.
If Buy & Hold was working then how come Investors stay invested only for 2-3 years in Equity asset class? After some time, SIP portfolio is nothing but Lump Sum.
It is #VOLATILITY which is becoming enemy of #Investors instead of it being their Friend. In fact, wealth is created through SIP, STP & Asset Allocation only because markets are Volatile. Will anyone adopt above strategies if markets were linear?

1/ It’s presidential #primary season, and we’re in the middle of a #pandemic. President Trump has declared a #NationalEmergency, sports seasons are postponed, and yet voters may be forced to line up at crowded polling locations to #vote. 4 states still have #primaries next week!
2/ There’s a bill in the Senate right now that would make it possible for all Americans to #VoteAtHome, keeping everyone safe while ensuring the 2020 elections continue. Add your name to send a message to your Senators, urging them to pass the bill: act.represent.us/sign/vote-at-h…
3/ If passed, this bill (S.3440) would require all states to allow voters to request absentee ballots if a widespread emergency made voting in person unsafe. #CommonSense #coronavirus

A study in AUS will track children and adolescents with #genderdysphoria being treated with hormones and surgery. The study unfortunately suffers from similar ethical and overall design flaws as the @NIH study being done in the US: bmjopen.bmj.com/content/9/11/e…
Because there is no comparison group of “counseled only” children and adolescents, the study is both scientifically and ethically objectionable, and 6 psychiatrists have written the @BMJ expressing their concern about this: bmjopen.bmj.com/content/9/11/e…
Excerpt: The Trans20 study aims to "document the natural history of gender diversity presenting in children." It isn't clear how the study design could allow observation of 'natural' history of #TGD youth when it intervenes in developmental trajectories of ALL 600 participants!

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

What I find strange about
@fordnation
eliminating 50 Million Tree program is that it’s exactly type of land stewardship program conservatives should like as it supports volunteer action by landowners rather than impose regulatory req. to plant trees on private property #WINWIN
The PR folks in Premier's Office are claiming that tree planting by the Forest Industry (which is a legal requirement and mostly happens in northern Ontario to reforest logged areas) some how makes up for the elimination of tree planting programs in southern Ontario. It doesn't.
Firstly, the Forest Industry is legally required to re-establish forests on crown lands that they log through tree-planting or other means. 95 % of lands in southern Ontario are privately owned and reforestation regulations don't apply.
