Thrilled to announce the Longevity #Impetus Grants, $21M+ towards basic research that could accelerate our understanding and control of human aging.
We welcome proposals from researchers in- and outside the #Aging field. Please share!

More info: & this 🧵
Impetus Grants are $10k-500k (w max 10% overhead). Smaller requests favored, to support more projects. No project period and no strings attached. Scientists at non-profits worldwide can apply with ideas that shift perspectives & capabilities in #Aging research, starting Sep 13th.
Inspiration came from @tylercowen & @patrickc's #COVID19 Fast Grants. Their team made funding decisions in 2 weeks, and the grants have already led to both discoveries and better tools for #testing.
If it's feasible to fund science this way, shouldn't we?…

Generally speaking #infrastructure is defined as the basic #physical systems of any #business, #region, or that of any #nation... including #transportation systems, #communication #networks, #sewage, #water supply & #electrical #grid systems. #BuildBackBetter #logistics #stimulus
Various types of #infrastructure #construction based projects typically drive the bulk of conversations amongst those of us vested in the arduous process of "progress" moving forward.
#Highway improvement, #street & #road maintenance & #bridge building commonly take center stage.

Here are few more of the resources we mention in the podcast.

This is KidzMed, an award winning programme developed for members of the multidisciplinary team to teach children and young people how to swallow pills from @GreatNorthCH

Even quite young children can do it!…

The manual for prescribing is @BNfc which is a fantastic resource

Initial chapters describe key prescribing rules

The Medicines Guidance section includes prescribing in certain situations and body surface area tables if your med is prescribed by SA

“Fomenta el abuso sexual”: cancelan famosa serie animada del zorrillo de Looney Tunes. Que tal 😡😠😖…
Así fue: Cancelan al zorrillo Pepe Le Pew por fomentar la violación sexual, uno de los personajes más famosos de la serie animada Looney Tunes, luego de un artículo de opinión publicado en el New York Times.
Piden cancelar a Pepe Le Pew por supuestamente normalizar el acoso sexual, pero idolatran y hasta cantan las canciones de reguetoneros como Bad Bunny, Maluma etc que con sus letras insultan y dejan por el piso a las mujeres

$5,000,000 to outfit a school with plexiglass, so now the kids *might* be less likely to catch a cold, and will definitely have a much harder time learning #progress #staysafe

‘Teacher Records Her Classroom Filled With Plexiglass Boxes For Her Students’
“Did the school board think about the students...”

Fuck no they didn’t think about the students. They thought about the feeling they will get from being lauded as heroes for finding a way to get the children back in school. They don’t care about your kids.
Apparently the school board didn’t like being shown how their “helpful” insanely expensive theory played out in practice...

There is a very schismatic chasm within the Democrat Socialist Labour Party - Namely that the Right-wing are no longer Democratic #Socialists or truly representative of a #'Labour Party.
The careerist, Gravy-train riders now support the status quo as witnessed by the sabotage to the 2017 election.
Their self-serving, careerism and allegiance to outside masters including 'Progress' aka #Mandelsons marauders... serving Two Masters - and not the people.
Their treachery condemned 1.8m foodbank users/14.6m living in poverty to SEVEN more years of the #Tory Regime.
The depth of their careerism, commitment to their gravytrain and support for the status quo abandons any opportunity of reconciliation.

Devastating, revealing and hope-producing. #RaviZacharias was letch and liar. This leading evangelist was a leading deceiver/exploiter/abuser of women among evangelical men. But his org embraced the truth—about him. #silenceisnotspiritual 1/…
Evangelical women, this is how the betrayal happens. Women told to be pure, while leading evangelical men are filthy. They reek a foul stench that betrays their forays into hell (sexual abuse, exploitation and rape). #ravizacharias #anatomyofthebetrayal #silenceisnotspiritual 2/
Our faith is not about purity. It is about LOVE and mending the fallen brokenness BETWEEN all things (not OF all things). We are made in ima

Another week, another pod open and a new one on the making. The workload is growing and getting heavier. Things don’t always fall to place as planned. BUT there are loads of good people bringing help where it wasn’t expected. SO many thanks to
@SurgeryRlh managers and beyond for kitting out 15C,15E, 15F,14C and 14D = 150 ITU beds. It’s slick but hard work 😓 scrubs definitely suit you
@gareth_grier @alice_kershberg Frank et al @ #familycommshub for taking care of families and loved ones while #nurses are stretched doing the physical caring. This is where kindness meets meticulous processes to ensure no one is left out

Možná jste zaznamenali, že strojové učení od DeepMind provedlo nedávno cosi výjimečného. Nebudeme vás napínat, konečně se totiž podařilo vypočítat složenou strukturu proteinů na základě jejich sekvence! Mašina tak určila VCELKU PŘESNĚ 3D strukturu proteinu z AA sekvence! 😏
Půjdeme tedy postupně. Program, který DeepMind (založená Demisem Hassabisem, který kdysi vyvíjel hru Republic: The Revolution…) sesmolil, se jmenuje AlphaFold. Jeho AI přitom POČÍTÁ TVAR výsledného proteinu podle řetězce jeho aminokyselin (ze kterých se skládá). 😏

#GatedEating Week 14
Cumulative change: -15.5 lbs
Weekly change: -3.5 lbs

Back on track. Extended fasts seem to do the trick. It takes at least 48 hours to see any drop in typical BG levels, and a rise in ketones. With all this fasting, #CGM Daily Patterns graphs are quite flat. Image
#CGM Daily Patterns


During considerable fasting, zero carb some days, 4-8g other days, and deliberate weight loss. ImageImageImage
This week's weigh day "of record" will be Thursday, rather than Friday. It's not because I'm going to (carb) binge on Thanksgiving. I'm long past that habit now. Rather, I usually feast on Fridays. This week I'm shifting forward one day is all to align with family day of thanks.

Azadi is not an option
A #Thread
What does a misguided #Kashmiri mean by “Azaadi”? Is it the right to #equality, right to #freedom, right against exploitation, right to freedom of religion, cultural & educational rights, right to property & right to constitutional remedies
If that is the meaning of “Azaadi” then it is already entrusted to them through the #constitution then who are these people and why are they asking for Azadi?
The people of #kashim for long have been disassociated with the #progress in mainland due to provisions of #Article_370 which restricted the investment and #development in the state.

There is great #progress under @narendramodi @PMOIndia, on the issue of retaining Public Sector only in Strategic Sectors & in limited numbers (1-4), so as to fully benefit from privatization & private competition. 👏👏. I hope all elements are formally approved within a year.
2/pvt Ports, Airports & other "Natural monopolies' have limited competition from similar facilities in 50-75 km radius. Whether they are owned by Govt or privately, they have to be regulated by independent professional regulator(s), to function efficiently in public interest.
3/pvt 3/pvt The strategic privatization policy was spelt out by Finance minister a few months ago. It's very comprehensive. Once approved formally by the Union cabinet and notified, it will be the first major change in Public sector policy since Nehru-Indira. Several specific..4/

.@naval’s 60/60 meditation. Day 2, Going through a bad breakup so lots of heavy thoughts. Painful, waves of heavy emotions. I get exhausted at the end, this time, came 5 min short, I did the meditation after a 6k run. Struggle goes on. #meditation #healing
Day 3 of @naval’s 60/60 meditation quest. Emotional roller coaster, very very rough moments, urge to scream at times..but also some very short absolute still moments, very short though. #meditation #selfhealing

1. It seems they have decided to oppose it by all means. They are doing it to avenge the demolition of #Baburi Mosque in India, back in early 90s.

This is a gentle request to them, please don't forget that your brutality, hate against your people, the minorities of Pakistan,
2. Pakistani Hindus, won't chang anything, it won't hurt them, neithr produce anything gud 4 any1.

If u want to build a #Baburi Mosq at d site of the #Mandir in Islambad, u r free. But trust me, it won't chang anything in India, rathr weaken our stance at d international levl.
3. It would disturb interfaith #harmony in our country, it would stop us from #progress, it would damage #Peace and #prosperity in our country, Pakistan.
It is better to make religion our private matter, and accept the difference rather than imposing our belief on others.

For those who don’t know, my father was born in Poland and immigrated to the US in 1980. For Father’s Day, he asked for a history lesson on racism and Black rebellion in the US. We worked backwards from his first question – Does #DefundPolice really mean what I think it means?
"Yes, yes it does. It means abolishing the police," I say.

He responds, "I know that the police don't make Black people feel safe, but they make me feel safe. So what do we do? I need to understand because I can't see where we're going with this."
We covered slavery, slave patrols, Juneteenth, Reconstruction, lynchings, Black codes, convict leasing, the New Deal, redlining, Jim Crow, Brown v Board of Ed, Ruby Bridges, Civil Rights Mvmt, gerrymandering, mass incarceration, stop & frisk, gang databases, BLM, #DefundPolice...

Ceux qui me suivent depuis un moment savent que je me suis engagé depuis plusieurs mois avec @LeGouessant dans des essais sur l'arrêt de la caudectomie (coupe des queues) chez les #porcs.

#bienetreanimal #BEA #éthologie #Recherche #progress
#CeuxQuiFont #FrAgTw

Thread ⬇️⬇️⬇️
pour rappel, on coupe les queues des cochons pour prévenir les risques de caudophagie/cannibalisme des cochons entre eux. Ce phénomène est généralement expliqué par les conditions d'élevage et la promiscuité des animaux dans l'élevage. Mais en réalité ce n'est pas si simple.
en l’occurrence,
nous avons observé d'une part qu'il n'est pas impossible de sortir des cochons à queues naturelle de nos élevage sans dégâts, mais on sait aussi que d'autre modèles plus extensif sont aussi exposés à ce problème.

#Thread If you thought “critical social justice” (as @ConceptualJames calls it) was going to take a break during (or better yet, become a fatality of) the #coronavirus #COVIDー19 outbreak, think again:
At @Independent after arguing that gender specific vaccines are needed, the author expresses skepticism that this will happen because,

“To date, our understanding of health has developed through a male lens, based on studies of men, carried out by men.”…
For the “male lens” reference, he cites:…
