2021-06-22T20:51:55Z via NavierStokes To: PublicFrom keratx on Twitter: The Delta variant of the coronavirus is spreading so quickly, it's likely the strain will become predominant in the U.S. within weeks. The most contagious yet among those not yet vaccinated, it already accounts for at least 14% of all new infections. https://www.keranews.org/health-wellness/2021-06-22/delta-variant-of-the-coronavirus-could-dominate-in-u-s-within-weeks https://twitter.com/keratx/status/1407438256527003653/photo/1

2021-06-18T13:41:10Z via NavierStokes To: PublicFun fact: I bought this cup in Geneva, Switzerland in the summer of 1998 when I spent the summer working at CERN before starting graduate school. I needed a reusable coffee cup since I was drinking a lot of CERN coffee. I have kept it ever since. https://twitter.com/drsekula/status/1405881677986123777/photo/1

2021-06-06T14:31:00Z via NavierStokes To: PublicEvery day I wake up - the sun shining through the gaps in the blinds in the windows, birds singing their morning songs, an surrounded by the warmth of family - I am reminded of a simple truth of my life: I fucking hate memory management in C++.

2021-06-02T00:10:57Z via NavierStokes To: PublicAfter a two week break, it was great to be refreshed and back at SMU to start summer research with one of the 4 students I will be working with this summer. Looking forward to ramping up work with the others and getting into a regular work rhythm again.

This thing is growing fast and I am optimistic about a good crop of potatoes this time. https://www.instagram.com/accounts/login/
