Thread:

Among breeding suppliers & farmers, it is a well-known dictum you keep very close watch on your genetic pool – lest you develop a weakened herd brought about by inbreeding.

Inbred pigs for example can develop grotesque malformations.

The neutralization teams have a message:
"Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine Retains Neutralizing Activity Against Emerging Variants First Identified in the U.K. and the Republic of South Africa"

Sorry to those who I've been ignoring yin this regard for weeks lol

Interrupting your doomscrolling with more good news. As most had expected, the vaccines continue to work well against the new variants. Our problem remains producing enough of these amazing vaccines and getting them out there in arm. They are so good that we have a lot of buffer.

Happy 28th birthday, Mosaic 🎂

On this day in 1993, @pmarca announced Mosaic 0.5, one of the Interweb's first and most durable killer apps. To this day, it's hard to imagine life without Web browsers.

Thank you, @pmarca @ebina1 @NCSAatIllinois 🙏🏼

Here's a concept I developed at NASA 18 years ago:

"Multipole Radiation Shielding."

Our director called it the First Generation Star Trek Shield. My lab lead had the idea to use electrostatics to protect spacecraft from cosmic radiation and he asked me to lead the effort. 1/n

The #WesternHarbourTunnel and #WarringahFreeway upgrade has received planning approval. The #megaproject will include a 6.5km tunnel, with three lanes in each direction, which will help slash travel times from #NorthSydney to #SydneyOlympicPark.

They better paint the damn roads like this because this bit of freeway is confusing enough right now.
