Why are there like 100 separate “True” shows on Netflix and they aren’t under one heading? Royalties/ IP thing?

Insects appear to be pretty robust during mass extinctions (much less vulnerable to low CO2 than marine animals, small body mass so don’t need large amounts of food etc) so if they are in trouble we are really in the shit.

Insect declines across multiple species are probably the best indication that we are entering a mass extinction. https://t.co/lRJAiRoQYF

One of the most heartbreaking wildlife data visualizations I’ve ever made - this video shows the catastrophic decline of western monarch butterflies since 1997. https://t.co/72B9WpjRsJ

The most important and personal story I've ever documented, and the one I most wish I never had to. The first photo I ever took of my daughter, and the last via @reuterspictures https://t.co/AsP20ZkXZL

Very interesting thread, challenges my preconceptions on the JNJ hold (I thought it was unjustified) using fairly persuasive empirical argument. https://t.co/Ffwhh3fAI1

Yesterday I said the J&J vaccine is Game Over for women 18-50, with 6 cases in 1.4 million vaccinated in that age group (~1/200k), here is why I say that.... [thread]

Opening share price for Coinbase consistent with the working assumption in @rob_cyran ’s view here … perhaps another example of the (relatively) realistic discovery of a market price via a direct listing? https://t.co/ioLgHrS2mw

Coinbase’s direct listing may value it at more than $100 billion. If the digital currency exchange is worth this much, competition is coming, says @rob_cyran. https://t.co/wcBuWYuxsa https://t.co/DxFGmZJQE9

I can understand the decision, but I think it's overweighting an uncertain rare risk vs the deaths/disability that will certainly occur in the still unvaccinated.

Passenger planes took off without enough engine thrust because a computer program automatically assumed that any passenger using the title "Miss" was a child rather than an adult https://t.co/bJ0wGr63gY
