Debunking #Myths Associated with Rabindranath #Tagore
with @rebelhealth1
1/n #Myth 1: Rabindranath wrote the Indian national anthem in praise of King George V.
Firstly, the national anthems of both India and Bangladesh were selected after his death.Secondly anyone who has Image
2/n bothered to read the original poem "Bharata Bhagyo Bidhata"(2 out of the 5 stanzas were adopted as India's national anthem), would know he has clearly referred to Bharat or India as mother.Surely a king can't be a "mother".It is ridiculous that this myth is still perpetuated
3/n @soutikBBC debunked this myth properly

Yup! When you've got frostbite, rubbing the ice crystals in your damaged skin can actually cause more harm than good! Always warm up slowly and gently! #myths #survivalist #prepper #WeGotThis #dontworrybeready #Tips #YouGotThis
Sorry folks, #GPS won’t always be there for you in a #disaster scenario! Remember those paper things called maps!? Keep those around with a compass. #myths #survivalist #prepper #WeGotThis #dontworrybeready #Tips #YouGotThis
Unless you’ve got a superpower that makes you immune to snake #venom, don’t suck venom. It definitely sucks. Get to a hospital instead. #myths #survivalist #prepper #WeGotThis #dontworrybeready #Tips #YouGotThis

Did you know fever is a healthy immune response and temperature upto 104°c is fine. Fevers turn on the body's immune system. They help the body fight infection. Normal fevers between 100° and 104° F (37.8° - 40° C) are good for you. (1/n) #Fever #Myths thread
MYTH. Oral temperatures between 98.7° and 100° F (37.1° to 37.8° C) are low-grade fevers.
FACT. These temperatures are normal. The body's normal temperature changes throughout the day. It peaks in the late afternoon and evening. A true low-grade fever is 100° F to 102° F
Fevers with infections don't cause brain damage. Only temperatures above 108° F (42° C) can cause brain damage. It's very rare for the body temperature to climb this high. It only happens if the air temp is very high. An example is a child left in a closed car during hot weather.

These are the #stories of #math that we celebrate, amplify and make central to the idea of #maths as a #objective #neutral #culture-free subject. #Math can do no #harm, and the #logical “pure math” thinking of #Mathematicians is worthy of emulation. But... 1/x
2/x ... "What about pure mathematics and mathematicians who merely prove theorems? Is there any #ethical component comparable to what you find in other fields of #science?" - R. Hersh in Experiencing #Mathematics
3/x One point of view: "there's no need for #mathematicians to have a code of #ethics, because what we do matters so little that we can do whatever we like."

I listened to (while doing some admin) @ISPD1 webinar on dispelling #myths in #peritoneal #dialysis by the inimitable @PD_perls- really interesting content and I’ve added some of my own myths that I’ve been presented with over the years that I’ve lead the service @HeartlandsUHB
Myth #1- Previous abdominal surgery and PD are not compatible..

This is the commonest reason why patients are not offered PD
Advanced laparoscopic tube placement can do away with most issues as this slide shows:
We have also done some percutaneous blind and fluoroscopy guided procedures in patients with simple scars such as a C-section; appendectomy and laparoscopic cholecystectomy and overall, not had any issues

Debates about tree planting are not new...

Interesting history by Rangan et al., 2010
#trees #climate #myths #frames Image
Rangan, H., Kull, C.A. & Alexander, L. Forest plantations, water availability, and regional climate change: controversies surrounding Acacia mearnsii plantations in the upper Palnis Hills, southern India. Reg Environ Change 10, 103–117 (2010). doi.org/10.1007/s10113…
Just like rangelands in East Africa, which later set the myth of "pristine" savannahs for game parks (depriving the same pastoralists maintaining such systems) the British colonial government was instrumental in India in promoting plantation forestry and restricting #access.

For Public Attention: Do not hoard masks/sanitisers. These are to be used rationally and more so by the frontline health workers. DO NOT PANIC! We need to collectively step up our hygiene and microbiological barrier as a society. Do not fall for quacks. #COVID2019.
Drink as much as warm sterile fluids in order to keep yourself well hydrated. Follow cough etiquettes, especially in public places. Report to a Physician without delay in case of fever, sore throat, running, diarrhoea, dry/productive cough.
An infection with #2019nCoV does not mean a ‘death warrant’, however extremes of age and those with associated co-morbid conditions like Diabetes, Renal Diseases and HIV/AIDS constitute the ‘risk group’. We are to understand the challenge in order to brave it.

There’s lesser sense of wonder and more logic in the world today... the youngest Jnanpith award winner, author Amitav Ghosh feels! His surprise in finding that most of the people he interacted with in Venice were Bengalis, his way of dealing with the human spirit in his writings, ImageImageImage
and if he locks himself up while writing are some of the things that he discussed with the Director @shekharkapur The more than 100 year Royal Opera House proved to be the perfect venue for such a creative dialogue with so much laughter. #Shakespeare was smiling up there 😊
Didn’t waste any time to thank him for his outstanding #research for his books which helped me with the #BiharMuseum project One of my most ever favourite #authors @GhoshAmitav smiled in reply with a surprise while conversing in #Bangla Thank you Sir 😊Yes, we are all migrants!

Many families (mine included) face tough decisions on what #languages to speak at home. There's a lot of #myths about early #bilingualism , like:
-Kids will get confused
-They'll have lang delays
-They won't learn the majority/dominant language

More info: hanen.org/Helpful-Info/A…
In my family, my dad spoke #arabic and my mom spoke #english. My dad was concerned about me learning English so after about 5 y/o, we hardly spoke Arabic. Since I didn't have any Arabic-speaking peers or teachers, my Arabic suffered attrition and now I understand, but not speak
My case isn't uncommon either-many early #bilinguals and #heritagespeakers often don't have the linguistic support systems (at home or in school) to maintain their languages, due to factors such as lang myths, discrimination, lang policy in schools, etc
