So #IPL match in #Delhi today amidst the #corona crisis. They say its a #stress buster. For once imagine if there was no ipl, would people who are already stressed, would they be more stressed over their friend/family/acquaintance getting ill/hospitalized. 1/7
Maybe, for some who seek a stress reliever. It gives them something to do, but so do these #OTT s.
I am pro #cricket and all for people prospering but never at the cost of other #people (I am sure it's not intended). Sadly, that's what ipl seems like right now..2/7
atleast in today's time when there is already a dearth of facilities and resources, we see it being diverted somewhere avoidable. There's a chill of #sadness in the air and a #curfew to curb the spread. As much as we try to focus on the #positives and the recoveries, .. 3/7

1/10: Do state actions affect the #psych #wellbeing of govt benefit recipients? In a new #openaccess @JPART1991 paper, @MartinBaekgaard, @SassMikkelsen, @JonasKrogh and I investigate this in the context of Danish #unemployment benefits. Short answer: Yes!…
2/10: To test the question, we rely on survey, quasi, & natural experimental evidence, utilizing the fact that in March last year, as part of the #COVID19dk #lockdown, the usually strict active #labormarket policies of DK were suddenly suspended -> benefits became unconditional.
3/10: In other words, from 1 day to the next, unemployed ppl did no longer have to comply with a lot of demands (job training, work requirements, mandatory control meetings with caseworkers, documentation requirements, etc.) to receive benefits. What happened to their well-being?

Great thread for anyone pursuing graduate studies. Here are my top 10 tips for a new #phdstudent in their first 6 months. #phdchat #AcademicTwitter
@AcademicChatter @PhDVoice @OpenAcademics #coachphd
1. Start with an attitude of gratitude. If it was your choice to pursue a PhD, it’s a privilege. Imagine all the people who would love to have such an opportunity to extend their schooling beyond highschool, to learn a topic in depth, but couldn’t for all kinds of reasons.
2. Don’t rush. Take the time you need to choose your #dissertation topic wisely (of course stay within the timelines of your program for finalizing your choice) - if you can, discuss with your mentor/s a few avenues for your dissertation and the various pros/cons of each.

9 causes of low sperm count/quality you should know

1. Infections
2. Varicocele
3. Heat & Stress
4. Drugs
5. Being too fat
6. Hormones
7. Other medical issues
8. Alcohol & smoking
9. Chemicals

A thread 🧵

Please RT for awareness
Low sperm count or #oligospermia means the semen a man ejaculates during an orgasm contains fewer sperm than normal. Medically, it means having less than 15 million sperm in 1ml of your semen.

If there's no sperm at all in your semen, it is called #azoospermia.
Having low sperm count significantly lowers your chances of being able to impregnate a woman.

Many families have been torn apart because of the resulting infertility.

Unfortunately, in some cases, people erroneously think the cause of the infertility is the woman.

Since I was a #graduate student, I’ve been struck by the variability in advisor-student relationships. While some are amazing, fruitful, and inspiring to watch, others are a downward spiral of awfulness and pain. 1/10 #gradschool #AcademicTwitter
Despite this, not only are #professors not taught how to be good mentors, but there is almost never any penalty or remediation for those with awful track records. 2/10 #mentorship
As a #stress and #socialsupport researcher, it was evident to me that advisor-advisee #relationships were likely having an effect on student stress, well-being and health. Surprisingly, no one had ever looked at this before. 3/10

PR firms prepare 60-80% of global news while 6 media corps control lion's share of global news. [Giants: the Global Power Elite by P Phillips].

Contemplating the sound question "what are they trying to sell me?" is always a legitimate/wise exercise.

If the "ideological protectors of concentrated global capital" wanted you to remain calm - the media, in lockstep, would mirror & amplify this desire. Instead we witness a psychological terror campaign waged against populace - w/ a growing acceptance/demand of fascist measures.
Many of the observations from the 2016 article, "Why We’re Living in the Age of Fear" can be explored in relation to what we bear witness to, at present moment. Our #fear is very easy to #manipulate. "We're #wired to respond to it above everything else"…

Thread from April 2, 2020.

"Science shows that early exposure to circumstances that produce persistent #fear and chronic #anxiety can have lifelong consequences by disrupting the developing architecture of the brain."

[National Scientific Council on the Developing Child, 2010]
"While some of these experiences are one-time events and others may reoccur or persist over time, all of them have the potential to affect how children learn, solve problems, and relate to others."
This is a topic worthy of discussion. Consider WEF's rapidly accelerating consolidation of global power. In Jan 2019 WEF exploited the climate crisis by deliberately inciting #fear - in tandem with partners & media. Today it exploits the COVID-19 pandemic.

Field trips help children connect with the real world & erase #classroom boredom. These trips contribute to their understanding of the world, broaden their perspectives and make learning new concepts fun.
Given the constraints of conducting physical field trips in the current environment, we at #NuttysDen conducted a virtual tour of our premises, for the students of @pathfinders_ps
There have been multiple studies that highlight the positive impact that #pets have on the mental & physical development of #children - children that grow up with pets tend to have higher self esteem, develop better congnitive and social skills.

#NithyanandaSatsang with The Supreme Pontiff Bhagwan Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam

Today's #Satsang keyword:

The delusional arrogance of humanity - do not allow delusional arrogance to ruin your life.
#SHRIKAILASA LIVE | #NithyanandaSatsang #pandemicFatigue

Do not make life decisions in the delusional arrogance of pandemic fatigue (sans. : #throbhavaSankalpa).

Humans face #pandemicfatigue many times in their life - not just during this corona pandemic.
#SHRIKAILASA LIVE #NithyanandaSatsang |

The old world is literally losing its branding over humanity.

The delusional ganging up called society, country, nation is melting down.
All the delusional ideas are melting down.

Today, let's discuss a common #skin condition that is very challenging to treat- #ECZEMA.

Eczema (aka #atopicdermatitis) is a long-term type of dermatitis (inflamed skin) that usually runs in families.
When a person has eczema, they usually develop a patchy skin rash that Image
is itchy, red, scaly, and dry. Eczema affects adults and children alike—most people get it before age 5.

#Doctors don’t know what causes eczema but research has traced a scientific link between eczema and #stress.
When we experience a stressful situation, the body goes into fight-or-flight mode and responds by increasing the production of stress hormones like adrenaline and cortisol. But when the body produces too much cortisol, it can suppress the immune system and cause an inflammatory

Who is a psychologist? Why do we need one? I'm not crazy, why should I visit a psychologist? I would rather talk to a friend instead of talking to a psychologist. Approaching a psychologist puts my honour at risk, and also my family's.
Several questions of such kind always occur in our mind, when it is suggested to us to visit a psychologist. We need to understand why it is important to talk to a psychologist when in need. We need to understand the importance of being aware, and taking care of our mental health
And before that, it is important to understand what a psychologist is and how he or she can help us when in need.

1/n We always hear that stress ruins your health, and can kill your earlier in life. Stress can be a causal factor that can lead to chronic diseases of aging like heart disease and even diabetes.

But do we actually know what stress does to our body?

#stress #health #glucose
2/n Today morning, I was woken up with some stressful news. After talking about it for 15-20 mins, I thought I’d check my blood glucose to see how my morning stress effected my blood glucose concentration...
3/n To give you a little context, I measure my blood glucose fairly frequently, & have been measuring it every morning for almost 3 months (for a clinical trial). I also measure daily morning blood ketones.
