Unlike the two-parent #inheritance typical to (but not ubiquitous among) #complex organisms, #technology inherits features from n parents - a "vast ancestral #network" more like horizontal gene transfer networks in #bacteria.

Experimental support for the #hotsprings hypothesis for life's origin: David Deamer of @ucsc on nucleic acid polymerization in the wet-dry cycling of Darwin's "warm little pond," powered by #geothermal. Lab results confirmed in #hydrothermal pools.
From "boring statistical partitioning" in the fission of early protocells to the complex #homeostasis-driven #mitosis of the cells we know - Doron Lancet of @WeizmannInstSci on the gradient between closure of #autocatalysis #networks to complex regulatory mechanisms of #biology.

1. Welcome to the 1st presentation of today’s #HCTwitterConf19 #NoPressure I'm @louoboyle & I'm asking WHY SHOULD I BOTHER? Provoking & reflecting on why #MakingConnections is increasingly crucial to all facets of our practices, thinking & futures within & beyond HE @HumCommons

To-do lists can seem to get ever longer & the timescales to complete even shorter. Mindful that #Wellbeing #SelfCare are always priority, why spend time engaging with communities like @HumCommons online?

Now this is the key question that I (and it appears others) are trying to tackle.

For me this is what gets abused the most by those who would be keen to do so.

And here is a checklist that @d_spiegel uses to guide how well things are communicated (or not).

Is it a coincidence that @d_spiegel is using food as examples here?
I’m guessing not?

Let's start our #GEMChats this week. The topic of this week is #student #entrepreneurship!

We'll discuss these three factors in the poll options below as well as replies to the poll 🧐🧐🧐 Let's take this forward!
#Students? And #entrepreneurship? Is that even a good combination?

Especially when you read that the famous student entrepreneurs like Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg are all dropouts!!!

Can students not only run a #business while studying but also be #successful at it?
Taking a different perspective at this is that while these billionaires are college dropouts, the #idea for the #business all came about when they were in #college! As a young #student, your ideas have a chance at being fresh and can be developed through stringent planning!

Don’t worry about #Malaysia ’s #GST repeal, higher #Oil and sales tax will help. #ge14. The BN lost control of government. Dr. #MahathirMohamad stated that he will repeal the goods and services tax (GST) and replace it with the sales and services tax (SST). Why? @chedetofficial
#Najib passed the #GST to offset declining revenue as dependence on #oil backfired when oil prices collapsed. It's a tax on the final consumer & generates more tax revenue than the SST. In 2017, GST was 25% of the total tax revenue and 3.3% of GDP - key reason people are negative
But what's key is the rise of oil, which raises oil tax. So #GST becomes less key! Look at the relationship b/n oil and oil tax. Very strong! We assume oil rises to 73 (basically now) & 10% increase of subsidy, & SST revenue (less than GST). Let's look at what happens to fiscal
