1/ @michaelpollan's highly-expected @netflix series #HowToChangeYourMind just premiered! 📺🍄 Despite near-universal praise, #HTCYM is rife with errors & borders on historical revisionism 🤥

A critique 🤔🧵 #LSD #MDMA #Peyote #Mescaline #Psilocybin #Mushrooms #Psychedelic @MAPS
2/ Before I get started, I'll give everyone a little bit of background information. @michaelpollan released a non-fiction work entitled "How to Change Your Mind" in May of 2018. Before the end of that year, his book about #psychedelic drugs became a @nytimes bestseller. Image
3/ @michaelpollan achieved massive coverage for this self-described "mental travelogue" of his #psychedelic experiences. Soon enough, Mr. Pollan became a prominent figure w/in the so-called "Psychedelic Renaissance". In the process, he gained a rather interesting reputation. Image

IMO, there is a place for hands on treatment to help a person suffering persistent pain.

Touch is soothing.

Touch can relieve.

There are different techniques we can show people to use upon themselves or to include loved ones who don’t know what to do.

1. You can start somewhere that is not sensitive, or at least less sensitive, using mild pressure.

Observe how the person responds - twitches, change in breathing, utterances etc., to get the right level.

Notice the calming, soothing effects.

2. We can use mild pressure touch on ourselves to soothe and create calm.

This would then be a better state for movement.

In other words, we prime ourselves to move better.

It's Good Friday.

As a sacrifice to Science, I'm going to criticise every single paper I've ever written, one tweet at a time.

Stay tuned..!

Paper #1: Holmes & Spence 2004 @xmodal

Criticism: A non-systematic review of selected papers, no assessment of study quality, bias, or effect sizes. The only novel thing in this paper was a long, harsh critique of Iriki et al. (1996)

Paper #2: Skaliora et al. 2004

Criticism: I contributed only one figure (#8) to this paper, but >30 neonatal rats paid the ultimate price for my crappy patch-clamping skills (only 17 cells) as an MSc student. I still feel the guilt.

Mumbling becomes angry ramblings. #Clinical LAENNEC WAS TAUGHT THE IMPO...
Has very little #breakfast. Walks excessively. Goes and lies down, only to get up and walk again. Family interactions little. Sleeps well for 2 hours from 12 to 2PM. Lunchtime. Groggy #father gets on the lunch table and defecates near plates and food. Son and mother aghast.
Father has gone mad. Calls the friendly neighbor, brings his car, rushes to #Medical specialty #clinic nearby. Father disoriented. Son gets the Fword from his own father multiple times, he is shocked! Then comes hurling of abuses after which they restrain him in the car.

1/ Q: I’m traveling this summer. Any tips for safely staying at a hotel or vacation rental?

A: Yes! 3 key things to remember: 1. Ask about infection control protocols before booking; 2. Beware high-touch surfaces + public spaces; 3. Try to book a room that wasn't used recently
2/ And, or course, #WashYourHands and #WearAMask

As for where you travel, in the words of infectious disease physician Dr. Thomas Russo, the key risk variables involve “what you decide to do…how many people you come in contact with and what part of the world you’re in.”
3/ Additional tips/resources specific to #hotel and #vacation rentals:

🛗 Minimize time in public spaces (e.g. elevators, stairwells)
🦠 Avoid high-touch surfaces if possible; feel free to wipe down “hot spots” upon room arrival (check out this guide from @HiltonHotels Image

In 2016, I was the first Researcher in Residence at @10DowningStreet. Yesterday, my first book, ‘No.10: The Geography of Power at Downing Street’, was published by @HausPublishing. So here’s a thread outlining the early history of No.10, and how it came to be. (1/14)
No.10 Downing Street was built by diplomat, spy and ‘perfidious rogue’ Sir George Downing in the 1680s. Downing's life was nuts – worth reading his Wikipedia entry:… (2/14)
Downing was a serial turncoat, close to Cromwell, switching sides following the Restoration, & betraying several former friends to their deaths. But he also made some important tax innovations. Mixed bag, then... ̄\_(ツ)_/ ̄ (3/14)
