Jiggs McDonald, NHL Hall of Fame broadcaster speaking in Ontario, says: "I am truly perplexed that so many of my friends are against another mosque being built in Toronto. I think it should be the goal of every Canadian to be tolerant regardless of their religious beliefs.
Thus the mosque should be allowed, in an effort to promote tolerance."
"That is why I also propose that two nightclubs be opened next door to the mosque; thereby promoting tolerance from within the mosque. We could call one of the clubs, which would be gay, "The Turban Cowboy,"
and the other, a topless bar, would be called "You Mecca Me Hot."
"Next door should be a butcher shop that specializes in pork, and adjacent to that an open-pit barbecue pork restaurant, called “Iraq of Ribs." “Across the street there could be a lingerie store called

Q: What gives doc? Patient took the prednisone for #myastheniagravis and got worse. Is it a wonky batch?
A: Sometimes you get worse before you get better. 20 percent of #myastheniagravis patients get weaker in 2 weeks after starting steroids. Be careful if they have bulbar or respiratory symptoms - you don’t wanna have a #myastheniccrisis on your hands. @MyastheniaOrg

Q: What gives doc. Got a #myastheniagravis patient. The repetitive stimulations are positive but the AchR antibody ain’t. Ain’t MG an #autoimmune thing?
A: AChR Ab ain’t the only fish in the sea.Try Musk antibody -positive in 40% AChR Ab negative patients. If negative, the waiting game - 20% AChR Ab negative patients seroconvert in a year. Still negative? Ab are teeny tiny and sensitivity of lab testing determines what we see.

More on #myastheniagravis we are #onaroll Q: Doc doc. The single fiber EMG is positive for this patient. Ain’t got nothing else. He’s weak so he’s got #myastheniagravis. Right? Right?
A: Congratulations, padawan. The most sensitive #neuromuscular test, you have. #myastheniagravis, it could be. #ALS, it could be. #myositis, it could be. Any disease which affects #muscle, #nerve or #NMJ, it could be. Seek to find what ye are looking for. #Yoda

Let’s do more on #myastheniagravis. Q: Doc doc. Patient’s AchR antibodies are super sky high. It’s a crisis! She’s a crisis! We are a crisis!
A: Ain’t no mountain high enough. Them antibody titers don’t correlate with severity or response to treatment - they are good for diagnosis is all. #allornone

Q: What gives doc. Patient’s got a foot drop. What’s the cause of the flop flop flop?
A: Nerve or muscle? #EDB - hypertrophy in myopathy/atrophy in neuropathy. Peroneal nerve or more? #ankleinversion - unaffected if only peroneal. L5 radiculopathy? #hipabduction -affected in L5 radiculopathy. Want more? Checkout @AaronLBerkowitz for more cool #swag

Q: What up doc. We sent for the AchR antibodies for this #myastheniagravis suspect patient and they came back #positive. Still need the repetitive nerve stimulations to confirm diagnosis?
A: Ye already have the answer ye seek. #RNS less sensitive than AChR antibody testing for #myastheniagravis. #RNS positive in only 50-70 percent generalized MG and 30-50 percent ocular MG. A yes is a yes and 2 yesses ain’t yesser. Less is more #mariekondo

Q: What up doc. My patient has ocular #myastheniagravis for 3 years now. Why hasn’t he got weakness in his arms and legs and breathing and everything?
A: Luck be a lady. 85 percent of ocular MG generalize and most do so within 2 years of onset. So now you know, after 2 years - look in the eyes - that’s where the answers lie.

Q: What gives doc? Why do you order AchR binding, blocking AND modulating antibodies for #myastheniagravis? Can’t you just choose one?
A: We just like more data. Just kidding. If you have to choose one, take the AchR binding antibodies - they are the most sensitive - positive in 70 percent of generalized #myastheniagravis and 50 percent of ocular. Other 2 Ab are useful if present when the AchR binding Ab ain’t

Esse final de semana tem Oscar e eu fiz o que todo brasileiro faz nessa época: maratonar os filmes todos (mesmo os q não passaram aqui, a gente dá um jeitinho). E sabendo o grande critico de cinema q sou, o @pontofrio pediu minha opinião sobre os melhores, vou por partes #topin5
@pontofrio Ford vs Ferrari

- um ford pica vs. uma ferraria rebaixada os dois a 180km
- vai ganhar o Oscar? Creio que não
- tem explosões e briga de soco
- é a versão nova daquele filme do Tom Cruise na Nascar q passava na sessão da tarde
- se fosse dos anos 90 ia dar um jogo bom de Snes
O Irlandês

- se n assistir vai ter incontinência urinária por 7 anos
- tem al pacino fazendo al pacino e de niro fazendo de niro
- dá pra deixar uma costela assando durante
- tem joe pesci fazendo o 2º melhor papel da vida (1º é no máquina mortífera)
- tem idosos, então respeite

[Day4: Strengths & Limits of #SciComm forms, media, & spaces]
It's theory vs practice day!

There are loads of resources out there for #BestPractices. Today, let's discuss the strengths & limitations YOU've found in trying #STEM #storytelling, #comedy, #SciArt, #digital, & more!
I'll start w/ my favorite resources: @edbeltane & @OliverEscobar's "Public Dialogue & Delibration" & #WendyFaulkner's "Dialogue in #PublicEngagement" handbooks.

How do participant #communication styles impede/help your purpose, eg. #dialogue vs #debate?
beltanenetwork.org/DialogueTheory…
These have been crucial in my understanding of #experiencedesign when creating events or experiences for diverse #scicomm audiences & participants.

There's a purpose for panels and debates. But also a reason why they fail in "changing minds" or creating power-balanced convos.

Y'all, I just need to brag about the students in my Barrier Islands class. While studying for their exam (which they're taking right now), they created a bunch of barrier-island-themed memes that combine #geology concepts, #coastal issues, & #humor. 1/
Almost all semester I've explained how most barrier islands worldwide are geologically "new," having only been made <10,000 years ago, but that the Georgia barrier islands are composite, made by two different shorelines during the Pleistocene & Holocene. #geology 2/
We also recently learned about how humans have interacted with barrier islands during those past <10,000 years, and how it changed from seasonal use to unsustainable over-development. #geology #coastal 3/

Acabo de rebasar la frontera de los 10.000 followers, que para los tuitstars no es nada, pero a mí se me hace raro.

Creo que le tengo que dar las gracias al señor Hopper (y a un montón de buena gente que, contra todo pronóstico, habita Twitter)

ASÍ QUE:

¡Castelloneo espontáneo! Puesto que está disponible online, me pongo a livetuitear el primer episodio de "Los perros duros no bailan", la nueva xenoficción (?) de Arturo Perreteverte.
"... en aquel tiem­po pesaba cincuenta kilos, medía setenta y cuatro centímetros de las patas a la cruz..."

Perros eruditos que conocen el concepto de kilogramos y de centímetros.
"Agilulfo —un podenco flaco, filósofo y culto que sabe de estas cosas— asegura que nací para el combate; que soy un guerrero antiguo con una es­tirpe gladiadora tan vieja como la historia de los hu­manos."

Agilulfo le dice que es un alma antigua, que lo ve en su aura.
