1. Good morning 👋
Tuesdays 🧵Given that most of #Mayo has #Peat soil, it should come as no surprise that the water flowing through the Burrishoole catchment is full of #Carbon, giving the rivers and lakes their typical brown, dark colour

2. There’s nothing particularly special about Lough Feeagh. It’s a fairly typical, deep, #Humic lake (45m deep), similar to many lakes that you find in all the mountainous regions along the west coast. It’s a pretty nice place to work
3. The impacts of #ClimateChange & #LandUse that we measure in Feeagh, therefore, are likely to be replicated in lakes in any of Ireland’s blanket bog catchments (to varying degrees). We'll look at #LandUse change 1st, and how it impacts rivers and downstream aquatic ecosystems

🚀 We are live! Here is the correct streaming link for all of today's discussions and performances, starting with a panel on complex time with David Krakauer, James Gleick, Ted Chiang, and David Wolpert in a few moments (measured linearly...):

"One of the ideas we had with #InterPlanetary was, 'What would it take to make science hedonistic? And instead of telling people to do it, you'd have to tell people to STOP doing it?"

David Krakauer: "Do you have a favorite model or metaphor for #time?"

@JamesGleick: "You've already mentioned a river; that's everybody's favorite. Borges said time is a tiger. People talk about it as a thread. We ONLY talk about time in metaphors." Image

Today I failed. I've done everything possible and slightly more, but failed. My plan was to get to recently retaken Town B. by train. But no success. It was a long long day. So listen to the story.
I took this railcar to get there. That's a service railcar that carries our track repair crews. Image
70 km drive. Hypnotizing.

"Animal-source foods are believed to contain the #meatfactor, a substance enhancing the absorption of micronutrients from plant-based foods"…
"it has been suggested that peptides, phospholipids &
mucopolysaccharides released during digestion of muscle tissue contribute in facilitating #iron uptake by mediating the formation of readily absorbable ferric oxohydrate nanoparticles"
But: "the enhancement in nonheme iron absorption is not at all influenced by the presence of heme in the muscle tissue [..] heme-free beef and heme-free chicken protein maintained the enhancing effect on nonheme iron absorption"

Now to talk about Phosphatonins and #phosphorus metabolism/bone disease by Dr. Kumar moderated by @sfeirjad...I'm ready to learn since admittedly I know little of this #AACE2022 #Endotwitter #bone Image
Why bother about phosphorus? Well it plays many roles in cellular signaling and maintenance of membrane structure of #bone. Low concentrations associated with rhabdo, decreased cardiac function and bone dysfunction (#osteomalacia, #rickets). low and high phos causes bone disease ImageImage
High Phos Concentrations are Associated with CV Disease and Excess Mortality in CRF and decreasing levels reduces CV mortality ImageImage

#2 B-COMPLEX/MULTI VITAMIN. Buy a liposomal or other form that increases bio-availability. Take 1 capsule w/Breakfast and Lunch. If you have stomach upset, try sublingual (under tongue) EZ Melt B-Complex in AM & Multi w/iron for Dinner.…
#3 OMEGA 3s. Fish Oil, Krill Oil, Algae Oil are all good sources of Omega 3. Be careful the EPA/DHA ratio. EPA helps with inflammation/DHA helps with cognition. You need both! Opt for a 1:1 or 2:1 ratio of DHA to EPA (2:1 ratio eg. 800 DHA/400EPA)…

Thanks to all for the good wishes about the appearance of the new book #Phosphorus. I thought I’d post a thread giving more info about the book's contents and its intended audience. Please RT.
So, #Phosphorus: Past & Future is:
-Non-technical, written for “general” audience
-Intended readership are curious folks interested in food, water, environment, nutrition, farming
-Good choice for first-year college seminars looking at complex issues facing society.
The book has 10 chapters & some catchy illustrations by @giada528. Each chapter ends with suggestions for further reading. I wrote chapters 2-4, 8, and 9; Phil wrote 5-7, and together we wrote 1 and 10, plus the slightly silly Epilogue.
