Hey #plant and #gardening Twitter, any idea what type of plant I'm looking at here? It looks vaguely zucchini-esque but the leaves seem wrong for that. Image
Close-up for you flower fanatics. Image
We have a nominee and it is not a zucchini: en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Datura_st…

Starting in my own garden is a Neetle-Leaved Bellflower (Campanula trachelium). This is a native wildflower in England but maybe not to MK, I planted it because I liked it! Very hairy tube-shaped flowers makes this well adapted for bee pollination, and they seem to love it.

Tomorrow I have another dentist appointment. It's very likely I will need to go look at #plants afterwards. Do Phil and Adan need a potential new leafy friend?
I’ve never been much of a succulent person.... but gosh look how pretty these aloe #plants are!
This one is definitely speaking to me...

> @cureworks history, story, achievements is very inspiring in itself, "been there done that" created a comp device we've all used > the "help" she's given and provided others is the real story.
@cureworks > @oneega has mentioned some things that pertain and should be done > Brainiac "FYI: Term of Endearment" not a put down. Authorship is kool beans by me. I'm impressed.

Here is something funny&sad
Yes. Its about #hepatitis C and #Ayurveda #Homeopathy #Ayush
A thread

1/
32 yr male. Routine check in 2017, found 2 have hepatitis C virus (HCV) +ve. That is, anti-HCV +ve meaning exposure to the virus & antibodies in blood.
#MedTwitter #livertwitter
2/
To confirm, PCR test 4 RNA has to be done. Which he did. The viral load was 900,000 IU/L. So he goes to a Gastroenterologist, who checks the virus genotype (it was type 2) and puts him on the fantastic direct acting antiviral Sofosbuvir+velpatasvir for 3 months. All good?
No.
3/n
He checks Google. Finds cirrhosis, liver cancer etc...gets alarmed and before completing the treatment, checks HCV at 2 months. Finds - anti HCV still +ve.
[note: anti HCV ELISA test STILL +ve]
Feels modern medicine doctor cheated him with expensive drugs.
Enter the dragon.

Last week my first first author paper was published, and also my first plant genus and species description! We described Keraphyton mawsoniae, a new fern-like plant from the Late Devonian of Australia. I wrote a little thread about it for #FossilFriday #Palaeobotany #Paleontology Image
Our paper is available online #openaccess at peerj.com/articles/9321/ “Keraphyton gen. nov., a new Late Devonian #fern-like plant from Australia” #paleobotany #paleontology #plant #taxonomy (2/17)
The #fossil #plant was first discovered by an amateur geologist on the bank of the Manilla River in Barraba #NewSouthWales… more than 50 years ago #NSW (3/17) Image

Good Day 🌎! Are you ready for one of Gods🌿to be Federally Legalized? I have stood strong on this since #DJT announced he would run in 2015. Follow along for my thoughts and leave a comment below. Please retweet and lets help those who need it most. #WWG1WGA
2) Starting off we know the issues with his brother and #Alcohol which for most would lead them to believe he was completely against any and all substances. However I am lead to believe the exact opposite.
3) #Drugs and #Alcohol both are known to have horrible side effects that contribute to many of the horrible #sickness and #disease we know today. We have all long known the power of this 🌿. This leads me to a Poll, Lets keep you engaged!

Healthy #soil sequesters #carbon, promotes the growth of nutrient-dense crops, holds more #water, and fights disease. What #farming practices can get you there? A thread:
Cover crops 🌿 When fields are bare, they're vulnerable to #erosion and #nutrient loss. Planting cover crops protects against this, while also smothering weeds, controlling pests, retaining #water, and enhancing #biodiversity.
Crop rotation 🔄 By refusing to plant the same #crop over and over, #farmers can return nutrients to the #soil without synthetic inputs. Crop rotation also wards off pests and disease, which have a harder time adapting with constantly-changing crops.

Virophages are small #viruses w/ double-stranded DNA genomes that replicate along with giant viruses + co-infect eukaryotic cells 👉@DaviPaez @kyrpides + team just published this study which increased the number of known virophage genomes by 10-fold!: microbiomejournal.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.11… ImageImage
2/ It’s the first study to identify HQ virophage genomes in diverse habitats including #plant-associated, thermal #springs, deep-subsurface and #cow rumen...
3/ AND...it’s also the first study ever to identify virophages in human #gut samples! 👉 4/5 human-associated HQ virophage genomes were identified in #fecal samples recovered from individuals with a rural lifestyle, the other was found in a patient w/ ulcerative #colitis Image

Our latest #infographic for the @UofAALES #EMEND project is here! Check out the full infographic here (ow.ly/hjQs30nknje) or read more below! #scicomm #sciart @NSERC_CRSNG @EllenMac_UofA @charlesnock (1/8)
First of all, what is EMEND? This is a @NSERC_CRSNG funded experimental harvest area where researchers are able to study the effects of retention #harvest strategies on biodiversity, soil properties + more. (2/8)
'Retention harvest' means keeping some trees either individually or as patches after harvest. This might help improve #conservation of #biodiversity within the area & can be used to mimic natural disturbance patterns. (3/8)
