🔴Excellent 🧵 again from @trvrb👏

#OmicronVariant really seems weird, interesting and terrifying. #OpenData #OpenScience will save the world now. Global cooperation and openness. This is no time for ’normal’ greed (nationalism, 💉patents), as the globe and future are shared. 1/
What we can already say is that the world must be grateful to #SouthAfrica🇿🇦 #Botswana🇧🇼 @Tuliodna @ceri_news @nicd_sa, all experienced with #Sequencing (HIV, BetaVariant): THANK_YOU🌼.

गेले १५ दिवस झाले सोशलमिडीया असो, टिव्ही, पेपर वा घरातली चर्चा असो कोरोनामुळे वेड लागायची पाळी आलीये इतक्या विचित्र थराला जाऊन पोहचलीये.

त्यांना साथ देणारे नकली पत्रकार, सुट्टीवरील न्यायव्यवस्था आणि नाकर्ते प्रशासन याला जेवढे कारणीभूत आहेत तेवढीच किंबहुना त्यापेक्षा जास्त आपली “बेशिस्त” जनता याला कारणीभूत आहे. (या प्रत्येकात अगदी काही अपवाद आहेत, त्यांची मी क्षमा मागतो)

पण वस्तुस्थिती ही आहे की प्रत्येक
क्षेत्रात, ऊद्योग असो, खाजगी वा सरकारी नोकरी असो वा घरगुती वा लघु ऊद्योग असो आपल्याला नियम आणि कायदे वाकवायची, मोडायची भितीच वाटत नाही, आणिबाणीच्या, महामारीच्या काळातही कोणी कायद्याला किंमत देईना.

एकंदर अघळपघळपणा आणि “चलता है” ॲटिट्यूड आपल्या जगण्याचा अविभाज्य घटक बनलाय.

Sleep deprivation. Stress. Mood. Diet. all are interdependent.

⬆️ calories food are more rewarding. Higher added sugar/saturated fat/salt = comforting. Also impairs sleep. Weight gain --> sleep apnea.
Sleep deprivation --> want to eat more even when not hungry
On Food, hydration & performance:
Dehydrated pilots have poor flight performance.
Soccer referees make poor judgment when dehydrated.
Physicians who are dehydrated have impaired short term memory.

HANGRY is real.
