Critical thread on "Self-Spreading #Vaccines"

Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Center for #Health Security: Technologies to Address - Global Catastrophic Biological Risks, Oct 9, 2018

#biosurveillance "biological disruption" "bioterrorism events #bioengineering
"As a subset of infectious #disease emergencies, global catastrophic biological risk (#GCBR) is a special category of risk involving #biological #agents—whether naturally emerging or reemerging, deliberately created & released, or #laboratory engineered & escaped—..."

#COVID19
This "could lead to sudden, extraordinary, widespread disaster beyond the collective capability of national & int. orgs & the #privatesector to control."

Persconferentie v internationale #WHO-expertenteam in #Wuhan gaat beginnen, met ruim uur vertraging. Onder meer hier te volgen:
Sprekers persconferentie:
- Peter Ben Embarek, teamleader WHO expert team
- Marion Koopmans, team leader molecular and epidemiological research group, Erasmus MC
- Liang Wannian, China National Health Commission, Tsinghua University
Liang Wannian: Sars-cov-2 may have originated from zoonitic transmission but reservoir host animal remains to be determined. Viruses found in bats and pangolin are not sufficiently similar to Sars-cov-2 for those animals to serve as progenitors

#Cassandra: #SARS1 bound "Spikes" to Human #ACE2 receptors ONLY. Those are rare in healthy people.

In #SARS2 & #MUTANTS (#COVID19) they now bind ALSO to #Furin receptors, as in #HIV/#AIDS & #Ebola, which makes it 1000 x as #Infectuous:

#ChristmasIsComing 🎄

We love our #STEAM friends 😍 Discover the #Roobopoli initiative handled by @Perlatecnica and @_Bluenet_ 👏and aiming to create an educational experience in the field of #SmartCities

#STEAM #education #creativity #programming Image
Roobopoli is a tiny smart city, a miniature city, where the life of the inhabitants called Roobo, is assisted by modern #technologies, the same available in real cities, but reproduced in scale for educational, testing and simulation purposes 🏙️
As part of the Roobopoli project, one of the main activities consists in the construction and programming of #smart #vehicles called Roobokart, which will have to move independently on the roads of Roobopoli 🚘

1/124 This thread is going to examine & dissect the very specific behavioral-patterns, underlying market-architecture, fraudulent scientific methods, orthodox rituals of the vast pharma-wasp nest set around the queen wasp Christian Drosten (@c_drosten). #wild #ride #PCRGate
2/124 We'll examine the inner circle arranged around Christian Drosten's real time #PCR-test-religion; key wasp nest stakeholders are: Olfert Landt (@tibmolbiol), Andreas Nitsche (Tib-Molbiol, now @rki_de), @MarionKoopmans, @MackayIM, @DrTedros (@WHO), @wef and many more.
3/124 My prior thread scratched the surface when it comes to huge 'conflicts of interest' in regards to undeniable scientific bias & staggering commercial partiality, also already tracing the international scheme-vector Berlin to Australia.

Robots have fascinated the human mind from ages and when it comes to robots and robotics one name that stands out is *BOSTON DYNAMICS* Known for creating amazing and awe-inspiring legged robots.

The complete story of the company that has redefined what robots can do👇
About the founder

Boston Dynamics is the brainchild of Marc Raibert.

He earned a degree in electrical engineering at north eastern university.

And, then went to MIT to pursue a Ph.D.

In 1986, he joined MIT as a professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Image
The origin

While working at MIT, Marc Raibert founded the Leg Lab, a laboratory fully dedicated to doing research for developing highly dynamic legged robots.

The idea of Boston dynamics took shape from this Leg Lab.

#China #Lanzhou #virus #laboratory #incident

According to official information, a pathogen from a Chinese state laboratory infected thousands of people last year.
The health authorities announced on Friday that #brucellosis had been found in 3,245 people in the city of Lanzhou in northwest China. A first test was positive for 1401 other people. There are currently no indications of a possible human-to-human transmission.
The disease is caused by the brucella bacteria and can cause fever, joint pain, and headache. It is often transmitted to humans from infected animals or contaminated animal products.

To all the new #graduate students starting their #PhD or the ones already in it. It's true that the #journey of a PhD is like #life packed into a few years. You must also understand that it is not your entire life either! Life goes on despite how this journey goes or ends! Thread
I made this #infographic to represent my journey in #gradschool at @UMassChemEng @UMassAmherst. When you're in the thick of things, It will be hard to see the light at the end. Everyone around you will keep telling you that but most of the times it will seem #impossible!
Year 3, 4, and 5, I went through multiple cycles of #depression. I cannot put a finger on anything specific of why that happened. What I realized though, is that every time I came out of that cycle, I found enormous amounts of hidden #energy and #strength.

Thoughts on upcoming #COVID19 #serology tests:
This is actually quite a challenge! (#Diagnostics often involve a lot of complexities). There is a lot of pressure to roll these tests out, but they need to perform well, or we do more harm than good. #MicroRounds (A thread)
WHY we need these soon:
1. Contact tracing.
2. Can be used to test if a vaccine is working during a clinical trial (70 of them ongoing right now, I believe)
3. Inform public policy makers about rate of asymptomatic cases + previous infections/exposures =informed decision making
How is developing a #PCR different than developing a #serology test?
1. #PCR tests detect viral RNA/DNA (in this case RNA) and can be pretty straight-forward in terms of development
2. #Serology relies on knowing about the #SARSCoV2 structure and how the human body responds.
