THREAD: So if you love #fishing and your water, something to consider. I have bald eagles, trumpeter swans, pelicans, herons here on the Lower #Wisconsin #River. Lead kills #birds. I lose probably more than my share of jigs and hanging with the @riveralliancewi got me thinking.
I am more pragmatist than activist, but #environmentalism hits home as you watch eagles soar as you fish pristine, delicate waterways. The 92 miles LWR is mostly in conservancy, and is recognized as a @RamsarConv Wetlands of International Importance. rsis.ramsar.org/ris/2417
So I cultivated a local guy who makes lures out of his garage. Very skilled fisherman too and I have learned a lot from him out on the water. Had him cast me this initial run of jigs out of tin bismuth alloy.

1. Today's The Planet newsletter has pictures of my village, where cyclists mostly have their own roads as you often see in the Netherlands.

Here they are warned to slow down at a crossing.

3. In the main street of the village, there are horse chestnuts everywhere.

Do you pick them up or leave them on the ground?

1. Firefighters in California are in a desperate battle to defend giant sequoias

Like glaciers or coral reefs, it is another example where climate change threatens some of the most beautiful sights on our planet.

2. The changing climate changes the planet, including some of the most beautiful sights that you may see in your lives.

From the magnificent glaciers in the mountains to the coral reefs in the oceans, we destroy the most iconic examples of nature.

3. I remember how amazed I was in the 1990s when seeing some of these enormous trees in California.

Standing on the forest floor and looking up, they seemed to grow into infinity.

Indian cities are not typically imagined to be biodiversity hotspots. Aspects of urban ecology often get missed in public conversations about the city.
In a series of illustrations, we explore the different dimensions of Bengaluru's lakes.

Let's start at the very beginning...
When you read you begin with A-be-see!
Every artwork has elements of household and construction waste that the artist found in her neighbourhood in Bengaluru. Look closely and see if you can spot them!

Ultimate victims of media induced fear & politically correct #posturing will be our #children. "hygiene hypothesis: "when exposure to parasites, bacteria, & #viruses is limited early in life, children face a greater chance of [] allergies, asthma, & other #autoimmune diseases..." Image
Dec 10, 2020, Nature: "'#Children are very much adapted to respond — & very well equipped to respond — to new #viruses,' [] even when they are infected w/ #SARSCoV2, children are most likely to experience #mild or #asymptomatic illness." Image
"These children’s #immune systems see the #virus & mounts this really quick & effective immune response that shuts it down, before it has a chance to replicate to the point that it comes up positive on the swab diagnostic test",

Natural #Immunity is not a conspiracy theory.

I'm the author of academic.oup.com/jid/article/22…. Our abstract likely should have read: "at the very most, 10% of all cases…, and it is likely even lower than that.” @MonicaGandhi9
Our main point: People should spend time outdoors to enjoy nature and be active. Being outdoors is essentially the best ventilation one could ever imagine, as particles have the space to infinitely dilute, disperse, and eventually essentially disappear. forbes.com/sites/cassidyr…
In the absence of vaccines, ventilation, distance, and masks help control viral spread. Being outdoors is an important resource for personal physical/mental health and to increase ventilation. #VaccinesWork

We recently explored: A Rockefeller communication manual on #contacttracing, the [Share] Verified (UN/Purpose) guide on vaccine #communications, & insights from The #Vaccine Confidence Project.
Here is another from The Behavioral Insights Team - "at the heart of the #UK gov't".
Spun from the "heart of the UK gov't", The Behavioral Insights Team expanded to a global consulting firm "w/ offices around the world... Our work spanned 31 countries in the last year alone...Our growing portfolio of #BI #Ventures makes #behaviouralscience-backed tools..."
The strategic & coordinated campaigns for global vaccine roll-outs & uptake, must be understood as #advertising/ marketing. The more subtle, the more effective. Billions $$$ have been invested for one simple reason: huge returns. What we see today - has been years in the making.

Thread: I spent a year digging into a story about a hiker who was found dead in a tent in Florida for @adventurevida thanks to editors @jeffmoag and @stevecasimiro. The mystery has kept me awake many nights, scouring the web. Here's how my story begins. Image
"Sometimes I imagine him falling through space, drifting like dust from dead stars in the vast nowhere above us. I see him take shape in the soft light of a forest before dawn. First a fog, then ephemeral form, then living flesh."
Brief synopsis: he was found dead in tent in July 2018. Weighed 83 pounds. No phone. No wallet. No ID. $3,600 in cash on him, along with notebooks filled with computer code. @CollierSheriff @kristine_gill put out a composite and people immediately recognize the man.

I was born & raised in #Medellin Colombia, an amazing & vibrant city in the middle of the mountains.

Please do not mention #Narcos or #Escobar when you hear Medellin!

Medellin is much more than that #eternalspring #innovation #Entrepreneurship #mountains #coffee #greatpeople

Went to a great school in #medellin & at 17 started #medicine not because I wanted to be a clinician but because I liked the #science & my family and #mentors told me #medicine was broader and could open more doors for me #VoicesIWS #Thread☝️@IWS_Network
