When multiple attempts to contact his local govt. authority went ignored, Hanumanth took the responsibility onto himself to clean up the streets of his village.
Having discovered that hoards of garbage littered his streets unchecked, he stepped out of his comfort zone and reached out to his local Panchayat authority to have it cleared.
Upon no response, Hanumanth planned a campaign with the children of his village who helped him and other volunteering community members clean up the garbage and dispose it.

From rejecting a seven-figure job to building India’s largest platform for financial education,

Here’s the story behind my entrepreneurial journey so far.
I graduated from IIM Indore in 2008 and got placed in JP Morgan. Having a zeal to do something in the #education sector, I didn't take that #job, to start up a new venture of my own.
During that time CAT went online. I started my own venture- FireUp, an e-learning portal for training for #management entrance examinations.

I've HATED this person. Actually, I've not loved them at all sometimes.

I've fed them lies and told them they weren't good enough and have allowed others to tell them they aren't good enough.

I've allowed them to be broken. I've allowed others to treat them disrespectfully.-
I've allowed them to run through brick walls and battle for others who won't even stand for them.

I couldn't stop others from abandoning them, but I've seen them stand up and be a light for the world and love others despite all that.

I have stood paralyzed by fear while they-
fought battles in their mind, heart and soul.

This person has screwed up many times as a partner, as a child, as a parent and as a friend because they didn't think they were worthy of self love or the love of others.

They have a smart mouth, a stubborn streak, and they have-

How do I get @shibainuart and other $SHIB and #Twitter influencers to spread the word among the #SHIBARMY to donate their coins to charities that accept ERC-20 donations? 1/Thread with links... unroll to see all the donation options for various #charities
One I found for the army to donate to is here, @ALLFEDALLIANCE - they will take your #crypto donations. It looks like a great charity too. Maybe they can #WOOFWOOF for $BONE to feed the world.

Then there is always one my favorites, for my entire life I've loved @SavetheChildren - I donate to them monthly in #Fiat but they also take crypto donations. #SHIBARMY send them a donation so they could also woof for BONE and help children everywhere.

1/ “After my father's death, my mother raised me & my brother on her own. She is a very strong woman. Instead of quietly accepting the norm—saving up for a girl’s dowry & marrying her off—she gave me the chance to fulfil my potential,” says #IPS officer Ilma Afroz.
2/ Ilma, the daughter of a small farmer from Kundarki town in Moradabad district, Uttar Pradesh, was always destined for a life of public service.

#ACTION RCT results just published @TheLancet: Another negative study of therapeutic #anticoagulantion (TA) in hospitalized people w/ COVID19:
- TA w/ rivaroxaban didn’t improve survival (or *any* endpoint) vs prophylaxis
- more bleeding with TA
1/
thelancet.com/journals/lance…
The AntiCoagulaTlon cOroNavirus (ACTION) trial was a pragmatic open label RCT at 31 hospitals in 🇧🇷.

It enrolled hospitalized patients with COVID19 & an elevated D-dimer & randomized to TA vs prophylactic anticoagulation (PA).

Aside: not sure how I feel about that acronym...
2/
The intervention was TA with either a DOAC (rivaroxaban) if stable or LMWH (enoxaparin 1mg/kg BID) if unstable vs standard of care prophylaxis (UFH or LMWH).

Crossovers were allowed (eg if someone in the PA developed VTE). They adjusted dosing for renal function.

🎨⏳📜Nautilus Cup, Chicago Art Institute
During the Age of Discovery, European artists were inspired by the exotic materials suddenly available to them. Goldsmiths seized on the opportunity to include wondrous and seemingly magical materials -
-including coconuts, ivory, ostrich eggs, and, in this case, a nautilus shell from the Indian Ocean - into works of art that celebrated both nature and artifice. These types of objects were also popular with collectors during the 19th c, when the mounts on this cup were reworked.

Need of the hour - MEGA CHANGEMakers

Meet the ‘Oxygen Man’

He’s a 52-year young man from Patna, Mr. Gaurav Rai

Saved more than 1400 lives of COVID patients

Carrying oxygen cylinders in his small WagonR car
Starts his day at 5 am and continues beyond mid-night driving his car himself and installing cylinders for the patients who are home-quarantined.

It’s a free of cost service.

He has been providing this service for almost a year.

What led him to take this initiative?
He himself was a covid patient in Jul-2020 and hospitalized at the Patna Medical College Hospital

He could find a bed for himself.

He was gasping for breath and no oxygen cylinders were available.

It took 4-5 hours to arrange the oxygen cylinder

Completed ‘Don’t Unplug’ by @chrisdancy. Great read, funny, insightful, and a little painfully relatable.

Recommend it and no matter what, do not skip the epilogue.

#TheUnitLibrary #Bookclub 🧵
I had the joy of attending a virtual LPD by Chris and pick up his book to dive into his cyborg thoughts a bit more.

The part one quote from the Nintendo quite screen assured me I was going to enjoy it.
I could never collect or analyze or process the amount of self-data that Chris has, but his structured development from his data to information to knowledge to wisdom was consistent with my KM proclivities.

#INSPIRATION RCT comparing intermediate vs standard dose DVT prophylaxis, just published @jama:
-no benefit to additional anticoag in ICU patients w/ #COVID19:no reduction in mortality, MV, LOS or any 2° endpoint
-time to rethink COVID #anticoagulation?
1/
bit.ly/3vCluqK ImageImageImageImage
INSPIRATION was a 10 site open-label RCT in 🇮🇷 comparing intermediate vs standard dose prophylaxis in ICU patients with PCR-confirmed #COVID19.

LMWH was the primary intervention (~40 mg vs 1mg/kg daily), dosed appropriately for weight; UFH was used if the GFR was too low.
2/
Overall the groups were balanced (total n=562) & were fairly representative of US ICU cohorts with COVID19.

The use of HFNC was very low (~3%) compared to in the US, which may reflect different practice patterns/availability.

Most patients (>90%) received corticosteroids
