@CorradoCarta71 @LaBombetta76 @MedBunker I "Bambini Talpa" sono uno dei mantra della teoria cospirativa di #QAnon. Teoria nata nei meandri di #4chan, un forum per immagini a sfondo #nerd finito colonizzato da #altright ed altre derivazioni sociali con in un comune un odio patologico verso l'#Occidente che (continua)
@CorradoCarta71 @LaBombetta76 @MedBunker li avrebbe provati del futuro, della felicità e del coito introducendo concetti come #femminismo (le donne decidono il partner, quindi non loro), #immigrazione (hanno paura che un #messicano che non parla la lingua e non ha amici gli freghi il posto al McD) e (continua)

GP China, 6 weeks ago: "There are no limits to our friendship with Russia."

China, today: "Holy shit, Vlad! You told us you'd walk into Ukraine as heroes + control the country inside a week! Instead, NATO + Europe are united against you + us + Germany + Japan are rearming!"
GP President Winnie Xi Pooh of China is still likely to hold power and get a third term but I'd bet his hold on *absolute* power in China is slipping.
GorT: I think GP has conflated his plus signs in this part: "Instead, NATO + Europe are united against you + us + Germany + Japan are rearming!"

The largest #comics social media page on the net,

r/comics on Reddit banned @BloodyRedBaron & his new pro-cop superhero comic for racism & misinformation,

They also banned the @FDRLST citing my article for Baron's ban

Hat tip to @BleedingFool & @BoundingComics
In addition, Facebook has made it all but impossible for Baron & others for ads on Facebook for the Thin Blue Line @Indiegogo campaign,

Blocking ads under the "sensitive social issues that could influence public opinion" rubric

1/7 Great to see the enthusiastic responses to my #autoregulation tweets. This is what keeps Twitter great and now I know I'm not the only #autoregulation #nerd. A few more tweets about autoregulation and CBF as a follow-up:
2/7 When you think about autoregulation and cerebral blood flow (CBF), keep in mind that, even if autoregulation works normally, or blood pressure (BP) is stable, there are other things that can and will affect CBF:
3/7
1. For example, when you hyperventilate, CBF can be reduced by 30%, even if BP does not change.If you hold your breath (without doing a Valsalva) CBF can increase by 50 % (or even more).

Star Trek: The Motion Picture Watchalong trailhead starts here!

#sttmpwatchalong Image
00:00 - Some quick backstory. The first ideas of a Star Trek movie surfaced during the original run of the show. More as an afterthought than something to pursue, taking a proposed episode by Gene Roddenberry called "Kongo" about a plantation world where...

#sttmpwatchalong
...the slave masters were black and the slaves where white.

Once the series was cancelled, the movie idea resurfaced a few times, mostly as an idea about showing how the crew of the Enterprise got together for the first time. They never got made, mainly...

Ik ben echt al mijn hele leven een vrolijke, kleine #nerd. Vanaf mijn zesde studeerde ik twee keer per dag op klarinet en later mijn saxofoon. Toonladders instuderen vond ik mooi werk, naspelen op gehoor, muziek moeten uitschrijven, allemaal leuk 💙
Die overgave om bepaalde dingen te willen leren, dat iets eigen maken tot het zich in mijn vezels nestelt, is nooit overgegaan. Ik houd van het leren zélf:
van het ontdekken, het oefenen, van de kleine details en van het kunnen leren van een expert die me begeleid. Dát. Zalig!
Ik ben nu weer iedere week bij een in neurotrauma gespecialiseerde fysiotherapeut. Samen met #hersenletselfysio studeer ik nieuwe coördinatie in en ook nu voel ik weer dat enthousiasme voor het leren! Ik oefen met discipline en plezier: ik leer mijn lijf & mijn lijf leert mij ❤️

@feedly me, when the ai doesnt get the right story picked:
ive got straight up rss feeds, google news searches, reddit feeds, youtube feeds all going into this and im trying to make it spit out perfection. mad scientist stuff.

So @PrattKap raises an interesting point here that relates to something I've been diving into lately. What is the value of the US balance sheet, and should we seek to maximize it? Want to (accounting) nerd out? Let's go. Thread:
1/ First, it bugs me whenever someone says "we should run the government like a business" and then says we have too many liabilities but can't quantify our assets. We own buildings, land, mineral reserves and a whole lot of other stuff, but don't quantify it. We should!
2/ And until we do, no one can make a credible argument that we have "too much" debt. Maybe we do - but you have to do the math before you can have an informed opinion. Which is to say I've been diving into that issue. #nerd

After a year since #biorxiv, I am glad that this story found its home at @Dev_journal. Huge thanks to my colleagues @GurdonInstitute @MarioniLab, and people who reached out after #biorxiv submission! Here is the lengthy Tweetorial and some notes.

We want to know why mammals fail at regen their arms or legs. However, we do not even know if we have cell types to perform such a feat.
To answer this, we use pre-metamorphic frogs/tadpoles. Gladly, my leg doesn’t look like a frog leg, but tadpoles are the most similar lab animal developing their limbs like mammals and can regen limbs + older they get, they fail at regen. So, what`s going different?

If I’m reading this correctly, nearly 0.5% of ALL ActBlue donations nationally since #RBG’s passing have gone through the fundraising pages I have set up. I’m honored to play a part in saving our democracy.
bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
(It says $72M as of 6pm; I was at around $330K at that time).
Yup...via NY Times, it was $80M by 7:30pm. I had raised $350K in that period. Image

Wir bringen gerade den Kids (J10&M12) #StarTrekTNG näher & schauen mit Begeisterung jedes Wochenende 1-2 ausgewählte Folgen. Tatsächlich finden sie auch gerade die Folgen gut in denen es um Grundrechte, Ideale & Ideen geht. Ein #Nerd-Elterntraum erfüllt sich.
Ich hätte nie gedacht dass sie gebannt eine 3/4 Stunde gebannt verfolgen wie gerichtlich geklärt wird ob ein Android die gleichen Rechte hat wie ein Mensch. Oder miteinander darüber sprechen was die verschiedenen Wertesysteme unterschiedlicher "Aliens" ausmacht.
Und dass die Serie abseits von Nostalgie nach 30 Jahren immer noch Appeal hat & für "Uneingeweihte" funktioniert. Sie lachen über die gleichen Szenen wie wir damals, es fallen ihnen die gleichen Ungereimtheiten auf, sie bemerken die gleichen Details (#PicardManeuver).

Hey folks: I wanted to share something @apmresearch just released that I’m very proud of:

Our VOTER PROFILE TOOLS, as part of our broader #RepresentingUS project. (Read: A wealth of data to understand the US electorate in interactive @tableau tools.)
apmresearchlab.org/representingus…
@APMResearch @tableau 2/
We at @apmresearch released these tools on #IowaCaucus day, but expect that they will be valuable up until the #2020election & beyond—to understand how eligible voters differ—often dramatically—from state to state & in each congressional district.

apmresearchlab.org/representingus…
@APMResearch @tableau 3/
Already I’ve read numerous #media stories about the #IowaCaucuses & #NewHampshirePrimary saying those states don’t reflect the nation’s #demographics, but the #journalists didn’t include any data as to HOW they differed and to what degree.

One of the turning points for @archillect was omitting #hashtags from the decision making process.
The hashtags added are not an important part of how @archillect categorizes the content.
Here is why:

Os lo prometí a principios de semana y ya es hora. Maratón de Gentleman Jack con comentarios lésbico-históricos, aquí y ahora 🔥🔥🔥
Y lo primero que voy a hacer va a ser canibalizar los comentarios que dejé hace unas semanas del primer capítulo y traerlos para acá que lo quiero todo en un solo hilo, bonito y bien peinado.
Episodio 1: Anne Vuelve a Halifax Buscando Esposa y Dinero, No Necesariamente En Ese Orden.

Last year, I did a questionnaire focusing on Black women and science fiction. I haven't written much on it, and I couldn't figure out why until today. Today, I walk back and share the comments. #reclaimingmytime #phdchat #AcademicTwitter #blerd
Most of the responses were soooo valuable, and I know that #Blackgirlnerds are everywhere across the globe based on the 300+ responses that I received. But... there were a couple that I couldn't deal with at the time.
To keep these together, I'll use #NerdingWhileBlack ... I think it's appropriate when I think about all the times that people have been amazed that I read sci-fi and fantasy and watch anime consistently. I also think it fits since being a #nerd has often been raced as White.

Have dusted off my Nintendo Wii and playing through Super Mario Galaxy with my 8-year-old. Extreme fun and pleasure!
Such an amazingly imaginative and charming game and surprisingly good with two players
Watching a child play a classic Nintendo game for the first time is an amazing pleasure. These games are magical. Takes me back to playing Super Mario World on my friend's imported Super Famicom in 1991 #nerd

Gold: I've had a busy morning reconciling data from the CFTC website with that which I download from Bloomberg to ensure that that I’m using the right information in our charts and research. (1/3)
Gold: The reason I did this was that someone, who I respect, told me that my recent charts, shown below were wrong. After a few hours of work, I’m happy to confirm that I have the same data as is available from the CFTC website. (2/3)
Gold: Although this could have been viewed as a waste of time, it does no harm to spend some time checking the integrity of important data and I’m glad it turned out that there was no problem in my spreadsheet #nerd #DataGeek. (3/3)

And now I present: a thread based on my love of #science, #scicomm, and #animals, and the fact that I'm a huge #nerd:

The other day at the library, I got this book by Ann Tompert for my 2yo (2/?): amazon.com/Just-Little-Bi…
The premise: an elephant and a mouse want to ride a see-saw. #Physics has other ideas, so some other animals come to help. (3/?)
