Something I feel is important to remind junior mathematicians: Deep mathematics results and important mathematical progress does not mean you need to be using the most abstract machinery. Don’t worry if the other grad students are using ‘fancier’ things, do your interests.

A short thread about how infinitesimally small spaces (called non-reduced schemes) can appear in the real world. We can build them out of ball-and-socket joints and rigid rods. https://t.co/dH1TZjorrg 1/n

Contact tracers to be reduced by 6,000 in England https://t.co/7FrPldPU4j scrapping private companies to use more health workers with local knowledge. Should have been done from the start. Pretending this was the plan all along. Actually, govt opposed it until now.

Candice Price, Chelsea Walton, and Shelby Wilson are soliciting feedback on the experiences of URM mathematicians in US based math grad programs for a piece they're writing on the "Top 10" math PhD progs for URM students. Plz share!https://t.co/Fl7vZxInHO https://t.co/Fl7vZxInHO

I don’t think this is what the report say. I think the key is this sentence “Without mitigations, a far larger number of people would have died from COVID-19 such that the QALY impact from COVID-19 deaths would be more than three times the total QALY impact of all the categories” https://t.co/70asVBAc9R

If completely opening primary schools only takes R from 0.7 to 0.83 (as this paper suggests), it makes me even angrier about the fact they didn't reopen fully after May half term. I don't know how Gavin Williamson and Fake SAGE sleep at night. https://t.co/rDhGkLCLEx

Nothing here I haven't been saying for weeks (and he could have also mentioned Pillar 1 and hospitalizations still going down), but good to see corona centrism (neither #KBF nor #ZeroCOVID, but cautious optimism that we reopening has worked fine so far) going more mainstream. https://t.co/s9Yf6HBxD3

Stop telling mathematicians they’re geniuses it’s made far too many of us think our opinions outside of math are brilliant and well formed even when they really really are not.
