Most recents (24)

🧵 U Michigan Ann Arbor just announced all students living on campus Fall 23 must show proof of bivalent booster by May 15th.

Even if they’ve already gotten the original booster.

Even if they’ve already had covid.

Excuse me but…

We know vax and boosters don’t stop the spread.

We know students are at very low risk of severe disease or complications.

We know most students have immunity from previous infection.

We know most adults, when allowed to choose freely, ARE NOT GETTING THE BIVALENT BOOSTER.

So why force a shot on healthy students that the rest of the world barely even wants anymore?

Denmark, UK, and other countries no longer even offer vax/boosters to healthy young people.

Even in the US, thousands of colleges no longer require covid vax. Many never req’d.

After a tough loss in the Fiesta Bowl, here are 10 reasons for optimism for Wolverine Fans (a thread):

1. @UMichFootball roster has been elevated substantially over the past 3-4 seasons. The 2023 Michigan Football roster will be as talented or more talented than 2022 roster.
2.Michigan Football has elite level talent returning at most key position groups in 2023.
3. @UMichFootball has raised its ceiling and broken through the CFP oligopoly that existed through 2021 with Alabama, Georgia, Clemson and Ohio State. Michigan is back again as one of the elite programs in college football, without any question, by any way that can be measured.

Given yesterdays news of $AMGN buying $HZN for $28B I’ve been asked to give color to the Tepezza history by a few people in a Tweet Thread. So here it goes. It’s my fist so be kind.
Researchers Terry Smith and Ray Douglas at the time of University of Michigan (#GoBlue) had been studying the role of IGF-1R in a condition affecting a subset of Graves’ patients called Graves Orbitopathy or Thyroid Eye Disease (TED)
A top notch team of entrepreneurs/drug developers Dave Madden, Guido Magni, and Richard Woodward had recently founded Narrow River Management with the philosophy that drugs could be developed much more efficiently than the industry currently was

Chili and football #GoBlue Image
Michigan hurt themselves by getting conservative on that last drive. Cost them the momentum. Bad move.
Could’ve made it a 3 score game and now it’s a 1 score game. Big swing. You watch enough football and you see how these things play out.

I was honored to give the commencement address today at the @UofMichigan Graduation, but I’ll be honest, I was fearful. Fearful that I wouldn’t have anything to say, fearful that they wouldn’t care about what I had to say, & fearful that they would rather hear from someone else.
But after @CoachJim4UM, @MarySueColeman, & my kids all talked some sense into me, I realized I was hiding behind my fears. In fact, those fears are an illusion, & I do have something to say. We all have something to say & do. #classof2022
We are all here to live our own wildly authentic lives. And it's our authenticity, our determination, our creativity, & our imagination that our society needs most at this uncertain time. Let’s step outside our fears & start living! #classof2022

I am genuinely pissed that a know-nothing Federalist judge lifted the travel mask requirement.

I'm not pissed for partisan or personal reasons, I am pissed as someone 11 days from receiving my MPH (#GoBlue)

Here's why: A 🧵

Masks should never have been political. They're a simple, risk free method for lessening the risk of COVID19 and yes, saving some lives.

But for a thin skinned, vane, know-nothing former President, this would not be partisan, and many more people would now be alive.

While not a panacea, masks help, and nothing about wearing them is a genuine burden. I wear one all day long at work. I'm grateful that I can, and I happily do so.

I have recently flown many thousands of miles for Spring Break and college visits. My family and I wore KN95s.

Ready for the #CFB Analytics Spring Top 40? Here we go. This Power Ranking is derived from a model which utilizes full Coach Staff efficiency metrics, roster talent, & returning production among other metrics. No opinion here, I just regurgitate the numbers. #NoOpinionJustNumbers
40 #Kentucky #BBN #SEC Power Rating: 61.726
Returning Production for the Wildcats may be a problem. At 39.72%, it puts them at 113th in the country. The schedule is manageable tho drawing Ole Miss & Miss State out the West. #CFB
39 #Washington #PurpleReign #Pac12
Power Rating: 62.271
Really like the new coaching staff in Seattle. Should put them in a better position to win. Roster talent purge from the prev regime will have an early effect (last 2 classes were 39th, 86th) but the ship has been righted.

Brad Rovin from The Ohio State University. Hmm are they in the #FrozenFour? No. No they re not #GoBlue #NKFClinicals
Brad is a fill in for Samir Parik

Alright #CFBPlayoff viewers. Lets go through this week's poll. Once again, it was, as it always has been, predictable. The model was off an average of 1 spot per team for the entire Top 25 poll this week. So let's take a look at some resumes shall we? #CFB 🧵
If you took a peak at this projection yesterday, you were prepared for alot of what you saw last night. The resumes are all laid out very similarly to the way the Playoff Committee views them. #ThereIsNoEyeTest
25 #HailState 6-4
SOS: 29, QW: 4, T25W: 2, GC: 3.3

Despite the horrible game control at 3.3, MSU snuck its way into the poll. They modeled at 26 so this isn't all that surprising. They are riding their good SOS, 4 QWs, and 2 T25Ws at this point. No surprise.

@CJBoyd_Research: No one vapes THC in "ENDS." THC vs. nicotine vapes = different devices.

Your study found “wheezing or whistling” in teens who vaped THC. And it found that teens who vape nicotine ("ecigs") have no respiratory symptoms. None.…
So, consider the logic of your statement on @CNN:

"Without a doubt, e-cigarettes are unhealthy and not good for lungs." ["Of course, we couldn't find any harms from nicotine vaping ('e-cigarettes'), but it just stands to reason there must be some."]…
PS: I cannot state strongly enough how the community of millions of adult ex-smokers who use #SaferNicotine to avoid toxic forms of tobacco HATE the term "ENDS."

And how much we hate @CDCgov's insistence that some people vape THC in "Electronic NICOTINE Delivery Systems."

Ok, lets talk #CFBPlayoff Poll. Time is limited this morning so lets just run through the Top 15. For those of you who signed up as a patron (thank you) or those who have followed long; you know the drill. There is no eye test. The committee uses a well defined process. 🧵
If you read this on Monday, last night was all old news and you already knew what to expect. If you like the suspense of the four letter network's reveal show be warned. #SpoilerAlert
15 #BYU
SOS: 44, QW: 5, T25W: 0, GC: 4.9

#BYU modeled at 17, so no surprise here. Good SOS, Tied for the most QWs in the poll. Game Control is low, but with a SOS in the Top 50, they'll get a pass. No surprise at 15.

Putting on my historian hat 🎩

Turns out the "extreme rainfall" records being reported by NY Times might be neglecting paper records in existence prior especially prior to the 1940s.

e.g. August 12, 1926: 3.24"…

"The heavy downpour ... let loose upon the city and which probably broke all records for a similar period ... flooded subways, railroad tunnels, basements and streets ..."

"...bolts of lighting played a tattoo upon church steeples" (?)

My friends at @HowlWithWOLF are launching a #MarketMadness tournament with many of FinTwit's favorite stocks.

I convinced them to add $DMTK $MWK and $CELH

Here's my pitch for $DMTK and $CELH

Enter at for a chance to win $10,000
It's tough to see two of my favorite stocks $DMTK and $MWK up against each other in the first round. I love them both.
Obviously I'd be picking $CELH in this battle -- here's my interview with the CEO of $CELH from last week:

What does getting a #PhD actually mean for me?

Here's a video I made last year for a general audience.
"Black Women in #STEM: What I do as a #PhD Student in #Pharmacology"

#GOBLUE @StemNoire @BlackInCardio @BlackInPhysio @BlackAFinSTEM

TLDR: Your ♥️ is regulated by an electrical impulse that travels throughout the ♥️. When this electrical signal is disrupted, this causes your ♥️ to beat irregularly (arrhythmia) & ineffectively pump blood throughout your can imagine that this isn't good 😬.
This irregular heart beat can cause your ♥️ to stop beating entirely = #suddencardiacdeath 🪦! In @EphysWiz's lab, my #PhD focuses on developing a therapy that can correct disrupted electrical activity of the ♥️ to restore healthy heart function. @BlackInCardio #STEMNoire

Let’s talk about Fall Semester. Colleges and universities have to make some big decisions soon
And it won’t affect just students. For example, the University of Michigan #GoBlue has 46,000 students but it also has 25,000 faculty and staff. While students may be mostly young, many faculty and staff are in vulnerable age groups
There’s also real meaning to “university community”, schools are densely linked social networks with multiple paths linking students, e.g. classes. Eliminating large classes can reduce but not eliminate the potential for epidemic spread

Showed my grad students how to use "Machine Learning" to study "Militarized Interstate Dispute" data.

Why did I do it and what did the students (and the computer) learn?

A bit of context. The theme of the class was the use of "event data" to study conflict.

A prominent example of such data are "Militarized Interstate Disputes" or MIDs
I had the students read Gochman and Maoz's 1984 JCR piece that introduced the concept…

Version 3 of the #CFBPlayoff rankings were released last night. What you expected? If youve followed along since early Oct you know the process. You werent surprised. For the rest of you, lets take a look & compare to what was projected using the same process used for 5 yrs.
First off, why does the committee use this process? Think about it. 14 busy guys make up this committee. They have roughly 60 hrs from when the last game ends on Sat to when they need to have this Top 25 created on Tues. If they evaluate only 30 teams to get that 25, how much
time is adequate to evaulate? 1 hr? Thats 30 hrs of evaluation. Half the time is gone & no one has slept. The process of getting a consensus out of 14 people hasnt even started. Thats why this process is kept so simple, & its why they have a defined predictable process.

Waiting for more information, but alerts went out claiming an active shooter near Mason Hall at Michigan.

Hoping everyone stays safe.
Please be careful if you are in the area. Even if this is a false alarm, police are actively looking for a shooter and on edge which creates a dangerous situation. Get indoors and stay there until there is an update.
DPSS saying there does not appear to be an active threat. It may have been a false alarm, but better to be safe.
