Terrific thread on the multiple-record-breaking storm that slammed the Pacific Northwest and California .. #BombCyclone
Record-breaking low pressure off the coast of the Pacific Northwest. The storm also delivered record-breaking rainfall to parts of California after record-breaking dry streak. Record-breaking number of times I have written record-breaking in a tweet.

El riesgo de miocarditis por COVID-19 🦠 es mucho más alto (11 casos/100.000) que por la vacunación (2,7 casos/100.000), según un estudio. Además, el virus puede causar muchos problemas diversos y graves de salud, y posiblemente a largo plazo en nuestro organismo. 1/
The risk of myocarditis from a Covid infection was much higher (11 cases per 100,000) than from vaccination (2.7 cases per 100,000), according to one large study. In addition, the virus can cause many other serious—and possibly long-term—health problems throughout your body.

#UPDATE The EU's drug watchdog approved booster doses of Moderna's #Covid19 vaccine for all over-18s, amid concerns that protection levels dip after initial jabs. Spikevax is the second booster to be given the green light after Pfizer/Biontech's Comirnaty jab earlier this month

June 29, 2010 @Tesla opened on the stock market, selling shares for $17.00. Today, shares closed at $1084.26. In 2010 "experts" thought electric cars were flakey ideas; it would take generations to wean drivers off gas. Think of how wrong they were as we prep for #COP26Glasgow .
Tesla's market value briefly hit $1 trillion after the car rental firm Hertz said it would buy 100,000 battery-powered Tesla Model 3s for its fleet — a bold move that sent the automaker's shares surging. n.pr/3nrjNZW

The polio programme is one of the greatest examples of equity. Its reach is unprecedented in public health and as a result, boys and girls living in the furthest corners of the earth are receiving the polio vaccine. #EndPolio
