I'm almost in awe at Rowling's confidence in herself as a writer that she would set for herself the task of explaining why the heroes of her story didn't stop the Holocaust. https://t.co/f7ukd2CPz5— Kameryn J.W. 🦄 (@KamerynJW) September 22, 2021

It struck me that, in the same way we have a quiet carriage, couldn’t we have carriages for people who want to wear masks and carriages for people who don’t?
100,000 kids off school with confirmed or suspected covid.— Kit Yates (@Kit_Yates_Maths) September 21, 2021
What happened to children’s education bring a top priority.
This is an abject failure of policy.

CHARTS OF LARGE CARDINALS— Andrés E. Caicedo (@AndresECaicedo1) September 23, 2021
The ladder of large cardinals is ubiquitous in modern work in set theory, with the consistency strength of many statements being calibrated by its rungs. Here I collect published charts of fragments of the hierarchy.
We are creating a Data Science + Mathematics degree/major and I am pleased that it requires two ethics courses.— Kay L. Kirkpatrick \🥄\ (@kay314159) September 22, 2021
It absolutely beggars belief that some U.K. scientists are still gaslighting us with “schools just reflect community transmission” BS.— Kit Yates (@Kit_Yates_Maths) September 23, 2021
Rates in older people are typically going down, but in school-age children they are rising.
How do you square that? pic.twitter.com/FYKcpy8B5r
There are simple things we could have been doing to prevent kids catching covid in schools.— Kit Yates (@Kit_Yates_Maths) September 22, 2021
Masks, isolation, efficient contact tracing, bubbles, ventilation, vaccination.
Where are the CO2 monitors that were promised? Not in my kids’ school for sure.
When we teach calculus, we *at once* introduce (at least) 5 new concepts (limits, tangent lines/slopes, derivatives, area, integrals), all intertwined together. There's no reason for this! Most of these ideas can be introduced *much* earlier, one at a time. Here's an attempt at.. pic.twitter.com/mWed3rS9sn— Alex Kontorovich (@AlexKontorovich) September 23, 2021

Just saying “we should treat covid like any other respiratory virus” won’t magically make covid just like any other respiratory virus.— Kit Yates (@Kit_Yates_Maths) September 24, 2021

Some videogames pretend to be spherical, but they are not! They are just the old flat plane but with stereographic projection. Easy to tell because we cannot have a hex or square grid on a sphere (a beautiful math fact). (1/5) pic.twitter.com/xtDGDJXkko— Zeno Rogue (@ZenoRogue) September 18, 2021
Question: Why do we attribute calculus to Newton and Leibniz? For instance the fundamental theorem of calculus was already known to Isaac Barrow (Newton's teacher). Other concepts date back even earlier, e.g. in ancient Greece and India there were calculus concepts already.— Anton Hilado (@anton_hilado) September 21, 2021

Meanwhile mathematicians: "If we assume this conjecture we don't know how to prove, we then see that this is greater than or equal to this, up to some fudge factors. The proof is easy to see."
