#LongCOVID19 thread.
Even only #chronicSmellingLoss #Anosmia can be devastating emotionally:
Affected people loose any enjoyment in domains like food, ignore bad smelling warnings of many hazards, can become anxieux about body odours or house odours they aren't aware of ect.1/
Besides, a #MaxPlanKInstitute team got data suggesting #chronicSmellingLoss means brain access: " #SARSCoV2 can enter the nervous system by crossing the neural–mucosal interface in olfactory mucosa..penetrating defined neuroanatomical areas.."2/ #LongCOVID…
NB: Authors also suggest the existence of "other mechanisms or routes of viral entry into the brain " As we were able to detect #SARSCoV2 RNA in some individuals in CNS regions that have no direct connection to the olfactory mucosa..." #LongCOVID 3/…

An increasingly common trend I'm seeing in books, games and movies these days is having characters banter with or snark at each other.

In the middle of combat.

This is utterly ridiculous.

The idea of casual danger dialogue stems from comic books.

With only a couple dozen pages per issue, the creators have to cram as much plot and personality into every panel as possible.

This works because every panel is a slice of frozen time.

Every panel represents a beat.

Talking is a free action contained within the beat.

This is unique to the medium, not seen in other media.

And for good reason.

Love how #NewGods begins with an epilogue. This is a mythology born out of destruction, WW2 vet’s search for meaning as the world marches along through the shadow of the Cold War. it’s a postmodern rejection of the myth that defined the 20th century. #jackkirby #comics Image

In the face of oppression, free thought and individualism is an act of rebellion, and the only way to be truly alive. (Mr. Miracle 2) Image

I'm working on a piece about social justice movements and lessons from Avengers: Endgame/the MCU. This reflection isn't going to be part of this piece but one thing that still makes me sad whenever I think about the MCU is the erasure of South Asian & Middle Eastern #superheroes.
The Middle East does show up... in the form of Stark Industries' weapons of war and as a vehicle for Iron Man's origin story and character development. We see terrorists as well as innocent civilians in caves and war-torn rural villages in the desert.
In Agents of SHIELD, we see a visibly Arab man (wearing a Gulf headdress) & an Indian man (Sunil Bakshi) as Hydra leadership. Later, there is more South Asian #representation for heroes, but even then, this idea of duality or being torn between good & evil is still present.

The talk about #COVID has been so morbid
News aplenty
More than often the exception about COVID has become the rule :(
Even world agencies r trapped in this eg back-tracking by WHO
I am gonna take a more optimistic view of this invisible enemy @DrDzul…
Immunology tells us infxn generate protective antibodies (ab)
In #COVID 50% dev ab by day 7 of infxn
Good protection dep on levels of neutralising ab
IgM & IgG ab rapid test will pick up guys who r ready for the job market to jumpstart the economy- they are immune inshallah! ImageImage
Research shows #COVID is dead on culture after 8days
This has implications for a positive test when the patient is clinically well
PCR is highly sensitive & has picked up viral fragments & thus positive.
This is actually a false positive result @DrDzul…

Ok @GovRonDeSantis GovRonDeSantis yer 48 hour paternity pass from me - is done.

You might be surprised, but this is actually a compliment.

You did two great things today though one, six weeks too late.

You shut down the state finally, likely killed extra 1 million people.
And you didn’t allow Broward to become the cesspool of virus that would happen if you had let another cruise ship dock without so much as a thermometer or FDOH on site giving anyone instructions. Remember three weeks ago when you did that? I do.

we don’t deserve Disney.
And - anybody who gives me any grief about the cruise ships I live in Broward depend on our Health system.

I am in 2 high-risk categories my chances of death from Covid much higher than most. Any idiot who went on a cruise two weeks ago — knowing this was going on — isn’t

Today we joined other groups from Berkshire & the rest of Britain (as well as some from further afield) for the #FinalSayForAll march.
It was brilliant - the weather was good, the atmosphere was amazing, the speeches at the end were memorable.
#StopBrexitMarch #PeoplesVoteMarch
Assembling at the start of the march.
A lot of time must have gone into making this pub sign placard.

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.
Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH
