There's a seasonality to many respiratory #viruses. Will #SARSCoV2 [#COVID19] follow a similar pattern? We hope so BUT we don't really know. We know when air is humid / warm ➡️droplets gather more moisture ➡️too heavy to stay airborne / fall more quickly➡️transmission harder. Image
There was a significant correlation between #SARS cases & environmental temperature. A sharp rise or decrease in the environmental temperature related to the cold spell led to an increase of SARS cases because of the possible influence of the weather on the human immune system. Image
Plus the winter season has a profound effect on how human #genes work - this may explain why some illnesses are aggravated in the #winter. During cold, winter months, genes involved with #immunity & specifically #inflammation were more active. nature.com/articles/ncomm…

There's been a story in a UK tabloid (that I won't name), and @BBCRadio4 of all places; that #rocket #salad causes #cancer due to high levels of #nitrates in the leaves. Here's my take, and what's wrong with the thinking behind it.

A thread.

1/12
It's true, #rocket #leaves are hyperaccumulators of #nitrates ; this isn't anything new. It's been known for a long time. Other crops with high nitrate content include #spinach and #watercress

2/12
Nitrate content varies according to where the #crop is grown, and is closely tied to the soil #plants are grown in, and the amount of #light they receive. Rocket leaves grown in #winter have higher nitrate content than those grown in #summer

#History #Judaisem #Germany

On December 12, 1944, Regina Jonas is murdered in #Auschwitz. To date, the #world's #first #woman who worked as a #rabbi. Regina Jonas was in her early 40s when she was #murdered in #Auschwitz. She belongs to the "#Masorti" movement,
the traditional but not #orthodox current in #Judaism. She was born in August 1902 as the daughter of an #Orthodox #Jewish peddlers in Berlin's barn district. Jonas is deported to #ghetto #Theresienstadt north of #Prague on November 1942.
During the #Shoah, Jonas in #Theresienstadt encourages her fellow prisoners. On December 12, 1944, she is murdered in the #exterminationcamp #Auschwitz. The knowledge of the fate of Regina Jonas is due to a Protestant theologian, the German Katharina von Kellenbach.

1) Today marks the 30th anniversary of the start of the #VelvetRevolution. Although I didn’t realize it at the time, this moment triggered a chain of events that would indirectly affect me in a myriad of ways. This #story is a bit rambling, but please hear me out…
2) First, let’s back things up to 3/31/90 - the final day of the #NHL regular season. I listened to the @penguins v. @BuffaloSabres on @KDKA 1020, as usual. But this was no ordinary game.
3) The #Pens needed a tie or win to advance to the playoffs. Also, #MarioLemieux was back in action for the first time in months. The stakes were high. I was 14 years old. This game meant the world to me. .

I will share with you a series of stories related to life in #Kashmir. They are #BelieveItOrNot stories.

STORY 1- A few week ago many people shared the picture of this #Shiv temple in #Gulmarg. This temple has been an attraction primarily in the summer months. 1/n
It is on top of a hill inside the #Gulmarg bowl. The hill used to be covered with flowers on all sides as was most of Gulmarg and has the best view.

The temple also has some accommodation opposite to it which was used by the priest and sometimes rented as well by travellers. 2/n
This temple in #Gulmarg also had some accommodation opposite to it which was used by the priest & sometimes rented as well by travellers. Close to 3 decades back during the summer months, there used to be "havan" at the temple & they made the best halwa one could have. 3/n

Hello, I am Edna Matta. I was born in #Ibague, known as #Colombia’s #CityofMusic. A beautiful place near snow-covered volcanos (Ruiz, Santa Isabel and Tolima), large expanses of paramo forest, lakes and streams where a diverse array of animal and plant species coexist
My story starts with #powerful, #strong #women in my #family. I was the third of 4 children and my mom #firstMentor had to raise us practically alone, since my father had to work in a different city, 20h away by car
My mom is a very #strong #woman that taught me #values, to #workhard and to be #self-sufficient #StrongWomen #StrongFamily

Trump Hotels' website still lists Trump SoHo New York among its properties in the Our Hotels menu. Select its name though to access its page and there's a message about it being renamed

Two errors in the 2nd graf of Breitbart's Trump Hotel DC article:
-holdings aren't out of @realDonaldTrump's hands: trust isn't blind & he can profit from it
-Trump Org told Congress it was estimating foreign receipts—not auto donating in full
