Health is inextricably linked with politics. Democracy requires participation. “A failed coup is practice for a successful coup.” - Tim Snyder. Opinions my own.

My husband proudly told me he weeded the okra and they looked great. Only problem was that what he left behind wasn’t okra.

He did that to the carrots when he weeded with my father.

Remember when they were trying to figure out why there was a giant drop in crime like 30 years ago and they tried to say it was due to better policing… And then the Freakonomics dudes figured out it’s because an entire generation wasn’t forced to give birth to unwanted kids.

1/ My new piece in @bmj_latest — public health innovation, not clinical tools, can end the #covid19 pandemic. Step one was reducing deaths urgently; now, we must reduce transmission or we’ll remain vulnerable to big surges. bmj.com/content/377/bmj.o156…

I sure hope that Conservatives realize that supporting a criminal who wanted to end democracy was just going to get us all robbed blind by a criminal enterprise.

We need to really have a discussion of how the judges and justices chosen by a criminal president can keep their positions.

I truly believe everyone has their own reason for supporting a particular party. I have respected these reasons for my entire life. Right now, I question anyone supporting the Republican Party which is clearly violating their oath of office. This insanity has to stop.

How can someone take the 5th Amendment when asked if he believes in the peaceful transfer of power???? Flynn needs to be courtmartialed.

Point #1: I do not exist on Twitter to be at anyone's beck and call.

Point #2: You won't find snake oil advertised in my timeline. Any therapy that doesn't work harms you. Harm doesn't just mean bodily injury; it can mean money, time, effort, or hope.

This is not good news: "we identified two peptides from the SARSCoV-2 proteome that self-assemble into amyloid assemblies. Furthermore, these amyloids were shown to be highly toxic to neuronal cells." nature.com/articles/s41467-0…

Finally got my qualitative fit test rig together and am able to share results for @flo_mask, @breathe_99, and others, as well as audibility videos for my go-to elastomerics. My goals were to test personal fit but also filtration and design. 1/9 🧵:

As Texas looks to prosecute women who have abortions--even out of state, remember it has over 3,500 untested rape kits. That's how you know this is a war on women.
