2020-10-22T02:10:54Z via NavierStokes To: PublicCOVID-19 has completely altered the rhythm of regular life. But when life returns to its old normal, and I am forced to sit in traffic for 75 minutes 5 days a week, I will miss these after-breakfast walks with @profcooley. https://twitter.com/drsekula/status/1319097465442832386/photo/1
2020-10-21T23:10:43Z via NavierStokes To: PublicGreatly saddened to hear the news that James "The Amazing" Randi - magician, skeptic, debunker - passed away yesterday. He influenced me as a teacher of the scientific method, and I once sat behind him on a flight and nerded out when I realized it.
2020-10-21T00:10:47Z via NavierStokes To: PublicHospitalizations lag positivity rates; deaths lag hospitalizations. It seems that, after a couple of weeks of rising hospitalizations ... here come the deaths. #WaveThree I seem to have Mal de Mer, but for emotions and COVID-19. https://twitter.com/COVID19Tracking/status/1318691009358893056

I exercised my right to reject the last four years of hate and destruction. I advocated for a better future. And it felt great.

2020-10-19T12:21:27Z via NavierStokes To: PublicFrom eredmil1 on Twitter: Major pet peeve with academia: 1) weekends are not business days. Do not send and email Friday and then a reminder Sunday. This is obnoxious behavior. 2) Unless you do work where lives are actually on the line, don’t expect <48 hr turn around without prior discussion. https://twitter.com/eredmil1/status/1317801143972564995/photo/1

Spent the whole afternoon with @profcooley in the demo equipment room @SMUPhysics shooting video for an upcoming outreach project. 4 hours of setup and filming for what will be 10 minutes of edutainment.
But I got to say "Action!" and "Cut!"
