Selfishness may be essential to civilization,

but that only raises the question of
whether a civilization so out of step with our evolved nature
makes sense for the human beings within it.

“Given how much is to be gained through generosity,
social scientists increasingly wonder less about why people are ever generous

and instead ask why they are even selfish.”

Abdi Ilahi says there’s another thing that Indians care more about than religion

“Muslim or no Muslim, the first question they ask you is:

‘You had food?’
‘Did you take your breakfast?’"

"I’ve seen a lot of countries but it’s not the same elsewhere."

Tweet from @BloombergQuint

After his ordeal, it wouldn’t be surprising if Abdi Ilahi felt only anger and loathing. But he also encountered another India.

Savarkar wanted to subjugate Muslims

This led Jinnah to secure the rights of the few he felt closer to (Muslims), over the rights of those (Hindus) with whom he had once thought he would share his destiny

It is a different India now, closer to the kind Jinnah warned about

“I earnestly hope that you will speak out before your turn comes.”

There comes a moment in the history of a nation & its institutions when To not speak the plain truth is to be guilty of egregious cowardice, intellectual dishonesty & betrayal of whatever it is that one owes to the institution in question.

There is now a Mastodon instance for publishing scientists: FediScience.

Everyone is welcome from PhD student to professor, as well as researchers from outside of academia. You are welcome to stay afterwards, but it is also easy to change to another server.

There will be a lot of science talk on this server, but there is no need to only talk science

Boosts are appreciated to let others know about this new instance.

Leave that to the investigative & health beat journalists. Even if you are not doing Delhi can't their numbers for long..Till then rejoice!

Lots of excellent points in this piece, including:

"The UAPA has [...] become the judicial version of the encounter — where the suspension of the normal meaning of the rule of law is itself seen as a kind of justice."

Tweet from ice9 (@__ice9):

Type A blood is a risk factor for severe in large part due to clotting.

Diabetes is a risk factor for clotting.

Atherosclerosis is a risk factor for clotting.

High blood pressure is a risk factor for atherosclerosis.

Sickle cell anemia is a risk factor for clotting.

Essentially all known risk factors for severe are simply risk factors for endothelial stress and consequent clotting.
