Few years ago, I was offered a scoop of an ice cream named “#ColonialStreet” at @NLChocolateCo

Which #bipoc wants to PAY for a taste of THAT when they can have it for free?

Same ppl who said to me then “what’s the big deal?” now supporting removal of racist elements

I see you After learning that their ice creams are named after streets in #newfoundland , I filled out a survey asking @NLChocolateCo, “Why would you want to commemorate #colonialism by naming an ice cream flavour after it?”

I never heard back

The Sikh scripture starts with:

Ek Omkar (One Universal Creator God)
Satnam (The name is Truth)
Karta Purkh (Creative being personified)
Nirbhau (Without Fear) Nirvair (Without Hatred)

Webinar notes
Some points of consideration #COVIDー19 #vaccine development:

Which populations should be studied first?

Which endpoints will be clinically meaningful (or not) for clinical trials

Viral Load Testing: e.g., its utility in upper vs lower resp tract

1 of 4 @ArthurCaplan is sceptical about a #COVID19 vaccine in the next 12 months, due to many challenges such as:
- vaccine efficacy
- distribution issues (WHO vs US; where the initial batches of vaccine go. could set off international disputes)
- many vaccines require > 1 shot
