Performance status in cancer isn’t broken, but is it time for an upgrade? Check out our commentary with @ElisabethEdvar2 Guro Stene and Lee Jones in @ASCO_pubs on different tools to assess PS ascopubs.org/doi/full/10.12… THREAD

Evaluation of PS was standardized using a physician rated scale, now known as Karnofsky Performance Status (KPS), ranging from 0 (dead) to 100 (well-functioning) with 10-point increments /3

So it's playing out like this. Build up your muscle, stay fit; it's our reserve against a catabolic episode (1). When you relax and put your feet up, things go south (fast) and take, it appears, a long-time to recover (2).
Now this pandemic has provided a blanket catabolic episode for lots of people, and the age demographics and poor metabolic health of folks don't bode well (3). People can say it 'only' kills older people and those with pre-existing conditions, but who in NA is healthy anymore?
Lack of sleep, poor nutrition, lack of exercise, cancer is prevalent, plus exposure to a test of immunity and resilience equals a poor outcome? Likely never been a time, and hopefully, there will never be another time when the message of building resilience to a catabolic threat

If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to reduce your #stress levels in 2020, here are 10 evidence-based strategies to try. There are other great ones, but these can be accessed at no cost or low cost. They may not all be possible for everyone, but maybe one will help. (thread)
1. Social connection. Decades of research show that social support from close others is a powerful stress buffer: emotional support provided in person or by phone by a parent, friend or partner can lower physiological stress responses. Hugs help too (photo by Tristan Le @pexels)
2. Sleep. #Sleep is critical for health and recovery from stress, but 7-19% of adults and ~50% of children do not get the recommended amount of sleep each night. NHLBI offers some solutions: nhlbi.nih.gov/health-topics/…

My #BlacksForYang Series 21-28 October.

Sign up for Notifications each time I post...It will be like one of those Twitter Op Eds I did, helps put everything in one place.

Should @AndrewYang worry about reaching & SECURING the Black Vote? #YangGang

@AndrewYang Thread 1: Pandering Vs Meaningful Policy

In 2020..Politicians must spend more effort talking to us not at us..".that candidates’ efforts to engage black communities often focus more on symbolic gestures than MEANINGFUL interactions." #BlacksForYang

vox.com/identities/201…
@AndrewYang What I really want the #YangGangFamily to understand ...ANYONE specifically talking to us about our own issues different to yours is NOT PANDERING...It's pandering when it's all about style (sounding cool, playing hiphop, photo ops etc..) and ZERO SUBSTANCE..no fake interest.

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

Distinct from #intelligence – a superhighway; #creativity as a slow meandering process down dirt road / side road

Must be both #novel and @useful – beyond simple #utility – something #new within a social context. Unexpected links ✨🤓✨

Dear @SenKennedy & @BillMagnarelli: Congratulations on becoming Chairs of your houses in the #NYSLegislature. Some thoughts to keep in mind when making policy. (cc @BikeNYBC @transalt @StreetsblogNYC @NYC_SafeStreets)

1) Transportation choices are shaped by public policy.
2) We need to give people safe, convenient transportation choices. Example, loads of people want to cycle places, but they're #2scared2bike.
3) Transportation is the #1 cause of injury death for kids and #2 for adults. But it doesn't have to be this way. Mortality rate in Netherlands is 1/4 of ours. That's because of good engineering (#VisionZero, transit, etc).
