How long would the #COVID19 #pandemic have lasted without the #vaccine?

We have two ways to answer this question: the first is the #historical one, i.e. looking at the past and understanding how many years the previous pandemics caused by respiratory #viruses lasted. (1/9) Image
The available data tell us that all pandemics caused by respiratory #viruses lasted about two years:

-Influenza A H1N1 (swine flu), caused by an #influenza A virus of swine origin, lasted from April 2009 to August 2010.

-Influenza A H3N2 (Hong Kong flu), (2/9)
caused by an influenza A virus that emerged in 1968 and replaced the previous H2N2 #virus, which lasted until 1970.

Influenza A H2N2 (Asian flu), caused by an #influenza A virus that emerged in 1957 and replaced the previous H1N1 virus, which lasted until 1958. (3/9)

As part of the @ILCOR_org Pediatric life support taskforce we reviewed evidence for accuracy of tests for predicting GOOD neurological outcome following #Cardiacarrest in children
🧵of key DRAFT recommendations.

#Pedsicu #NeuroPICU
#Prediction of good neurological outcome is a key role for #PedsICU clinicians in #postarrestcare phase of #chainofsurvival.
Improving prognostic #uncertainty may help clinicians choose treatments, counsel families, and answer accurately, "Will my child be OK?“
The #PLS taskforce conducted a #systematicreview of literature reporting prognostic tests used in children after cardiac arrest.
Four types of tests were evaluated:
*Clinical examination
*Blood biomarkers
*Brain Imaging

My textbook with Kosuke Imai (@Harvard) is finally out!

Assuming no prior knowledge of statistics or coding and only minimal knowledge of math, DSS teaches the fundamentals of survey research, predictive models, and causal inference + how to analyze real-world data with R.

🧵.. Image
1/n: DSS is meant for complete beginners, regardless of whether they are in high school, in graduate school, or out of school altogether. #rstats #surveys #prediction #causality

Want to see for yourself? The first chapter is free here:

Book outline: Image
2/n: We wrote DSS so that anyone could learn the skills we teach by following along with the exercises in the book on their own computer, without the help of an instructor. (Everything needed is either in the book or on the book's website.) #rstats #surveys #prediction #causality Image

Maybe another word on the '#unredacted Fauci emails', now that it is clear that there were no cover-ups or suppression of #lableak, but just neutral #scientific discussion.

Observe how lableak advocates will run their #disinformation playbook, we've seen this before.

A 🧵

Everytime new contradictory information (to the lableak conspiracy myth) comes out, there is an increase in #activity by lableak advocates.

We've seen this with the BANAL sequences in LAOS that proved that the RBD domain of SARS-CoV-2 was not 'manmade'
We've seen this in response to 2 scientific papers that establish the Huanan market as the center & start of the pandemic.

(Worth re-reading this thread too)

I think it's likelier than not that Kherson reverts to Ukraine by EOM January 2023. Not high conviction call but multiplicity of evidence now points to that.

Main focus will be on preserving the one Pyrrhic gain from the war, the Crimean Corridor.
I adjust to reality.

Kherson only useful as springboard into Nikolaev and later Odessa. Spending ≤5% of GDP on military is insufficient to man or munition such offensives, while also plugging LNR and Zaporozhye. The Dnieper is much more defensible.
Reality is, Kherson is a smallish, poor provincial city and of the 8 Novorossiya provinces, the least pro-Russian from 2013/14 polls. In denying Ukraine manpower or industries, its loss is close to inconsequential. Main problem is that the dam may then go & Crimea goes dry again.

💡Zététique ou Autodéfense intellectuelle ? (thread)

Lors de mon enseignement des bases de la #PenséeCritique, la « #zététique » et l'#AutodéfenseIntellectuelle m'ont été présentées de façon confondue : il m'a été longtemps difficile de faire la part des choses entre les deux.👇
De plus, sans même parler d'#AutodéfenseIntellectuelle, la définition du terme #Zététique elle-même semble être différente d'une personne à l'autre.
Je vais ici vous en exposer ma compréhension depuis les cours de @RichMonvoisin à son utilisation dans la communauté des #SceptiquesRationnel·les française et parler brièvement des idéologies associées comme l'#AutodéfenseIntellectuelle afin d'éviter les épouvantails.

I have been studying the future of science for 18 months now. In this thread, I will (slowly) list some of the insights gained thus far on the estimating of futures of science (EFS).
1. The goal of EFS is not so much to predict future discoveries and innovations as to (i) understand the structural features of the future, and (ii) critically engage with conceptions of science that shape the visions and actions for the future.
2. There are many interesting similarities between approaches in futures research and philosophy of science. For example, philosophy of science has provided insight similar to those provided by causal layered analysis (CLA).

Doc I'm stressed, I need a #CoffeeBreak

How trying out #SmallTestsofChange and #PDSA could be used to improve staff #Wellbeing during a long medical ward round

Would be great to see what you think, and if you have tried something like this.

Follow #Thread and click on pics
During a consultant ward round on a 30 bedded respiratory ward, one of our ACP's said that she found the 4-hour long ward round stressful and tiring, and was wondering whether we could include a break of some sort for a cup of tea or coffee #changeidea. To refresh the staff.
The consultant was worried that if we did this, we may not complete ward round by 1pm and potentially delay management of patients. And lead to even more stress!

This year will see epochal #DeFi boom: BTC $100k, ETH $10k - ending in a bust (dotcom bubble).

Then a long winter, when hardy survivors can be picked up at fire sale prices.

And then, come the 2030s - just like software 20 years ago - crypto will "eat the world." #prediction
This is extremely specific and unlikely to happen in quite this way, but I do think that generally, this is what will actually happen. Crypto is replicating all the institutions and infrastructure of the modern economy. But this boom came just a bit too early to actualize rn.
Last major digital asset to "moon" will be "land". Don't know if urbit will dominate, but does have "first mover" advantage. Stars currently worth ~$5,000, might increase 100x within the decade. Window of opportunity for competitors is narrowing fast (Metcalfe's Law).

*4th PLACE* of our most impactful articles published in @RSeriesa in 2020 according to @altmetric:

Tanner et al:…

*CONTEXT* Dynamic prediction models provide predicted probabilities that can be updated over time as data become available. There is growing interest in the use of #machinelearning 🤖; yet, their use in the context of dynamic survival #prediction has been limited.
*AIM* Show how #landmarking can be combined with a #machinelearning ensemble to improve prediction performance

*METHOD* Use of discrete time #survivalanalysis techniques to enable the use of #machinelearning algorithms for binary outcomes

Haven't been following Georgia. My guess is Republicans lose both. #prediction
Why would lower income Trump supporters (his base) vote for the party that failed to find Trump 11,780 votes and robbed them of $2,000 personally? I certainly wouldn't, I'd sit it out, myself.
Polls have both Dems up by 2% points (Biden was +1.2% and won by +0.2%).
And there's less reason for them to be inaccurate now too.…

Growing by 0.5M a month.
Russian economy beginning to enter intensive financialization period.
Get in there. Yandex, Ozon, mail ru (VK) still hugely undervalued, less risky/exotic than cryptos.
Russian GDP (nominal) is 10% of USA, likely to expand relative to it & Internet penetration is now near universal.
Yandex: $24B, Google: $1,400B (70x smaller)
60% of RU search market, doubles as RU Uber (Yandex Taxi), expanding into cloud, video, e-commerce, self-driving cars.
