**Bar Chart Race for CO2** The changing ranks of the 10 largest CO2 emitters in the world since 1850. Fascinating to see nations rise, fall & rise again in their yearly emissions* See how the UK dominates the C19th & US the 20th. Then watch China surge ahead after 2005…

Researchers who work w/ educational attainment PGSs know they are useless for understanding anything about race & racism (and should be careful to say so). is one person grappling with genetics & equity:

In light of the & before I get off twitter for a good break bc I cannot, as a social scientist re: learning environments, deal with this many bad takes: here are some things I try to do that I think genuinely help students who come from hard circumstances

Everyone seems to be responding to et al.'s new income GWAS with a version of "omg how can you say your genes cause you to make more money?!?" -- which, in my view, totally misses the most interesting part of the paper.

Suddenly I was alert, productive.. I felt like I had more time to get things done because I was able to use my time more efficiently. My relationships thrived, my mental health improved.. It didn't fix everything, but it helped a ton! 100% recommend👍

A year ago I made a conscious decision to get 8-9 hours of sleep every night no matter what and it CHANGED MY LIFE. I had NO idea how exhausted my mind and body were before.

Concl'n: Science does not identify a specific goal, target, or timeline. What it says is simply this: the more carbon we produce, the worse the impacts. The best thing to do is wean ourselves off it, as soon as is humanly possible. As a human I'd add: while minimizing suffering.

When it comes to what climate goals we should be aiming for, there are a lot of "magic numbers" floating around - 2 degrees, 12 years, 350ppm, net zero emissions, and more. Here's a short thread explaining the scientific basis--or lack thereof--for each.

I really appreciate this thread. The argument that the will lead to other application aspects being more important which may allow discrimination via other application factors doesn’t sit right with me. Not because it isn’t valid but because...

1) Only white people have the luxury of “not seeing”, AKA, pretending to ignore, color. 2) The only way you cannot see color is if you’re blind. 3) Racism is not about noticing difference, it’s about the systemic deprivation of equal resources and justice that comes with it.

A hill I will die on: this phrase was first coined by Laurel Thatcher Ulrich, a Mormon woman from Idaho who won the Pulitzer Prize for the Midwife's Tale. When you use this quote without attribution, you erase the woman who coined it when writing about well-behaved puritans

Spacecraft, then? Truly a remarkable film. Husband said it was possibly the best documentary he's ever seen.

Koko-di Koko-da was crazy. Like a dark Swedish Alice in Wonderland. The promo photo made it seem like there would be a giant cat, and alas, no giant cat. Very disappointing. Still enjoyed it though.

APOLLO 11 was SO cool. The shots looking out from inside the shuttle, the close ups of the launch and moon landing, seeing all the NASA workers in the giant computer control room. I'll be looking for it in IMAX to watch again when it's released.

Honey Boy was good. Did not realize going in that it is the story of Shia LaBeouf's childhood. Lot of messed up stuff for a kid to live through, but the performances were incredible.
