Hi 👋🏾

"Hawai'ian" is not a word and that spelling is entirely wrong. If you see it, kindly update it and share this knowledge with others.

Hawaiian is an English word

Hawaiʻi is a word from the Indigenous language of the people of Hawaiʻi

Since it's the last day of #PrideMonth, Twitter, may I present to you...

Lady Gaga as Particle Physics Experiments: A Thread.

First up is @ALICEexperiment, studying strongly interacting matter at extreme energy densities, where a phase of matter called Quark-Gluon Plasma forms. pic.twitter.com/BfRyVBO1ot

Kanaka Māoli or Kanaka ʻŌiwi are the Indigenous people of Hawaiʻi

ʻ 👈🏾 is an okina, which is a letter

Car and care are different things bc that extra letter made a difference.

You can make a difference too 👍🏾

Tell all your friends #kthxluvyabye

Astrophysicist @AstroKatie has published a thoughtful public letter regarding @NCState's reopening this fall. This is a courageous action speaking truth to power. Here I comment on inequalities driving these decisions. (1/10) https://t.co/lQeSaGHCMx

I love going through my old notebooks because I find things like this and think to myself, “what deranged, confused person thought this would be helpful?” pic.twitter.com/lFUPxldFm4

At times like these, I remember Tamir Rice, who was killed by police within seconds of them rolling up for the crime of having a toy gun. Or John Crawford who was shot without warning by police for the crime of picking up a BB gun in a store. https://t.co/g3V2eUnsWG

'Everything is determined, the beginning as well as the end, by forces over which we have no control ...

Human beings, vegetables or cosmic dust, we all dance to a mysterious tune, intoned in the distance by an invisible piper.'

Sorry to interrupt your feed but SOLAR ECLIPSE FROM ANOTHER PLANET!! Taken by my favorite rover, @MarsCuriosity, the first image is Mars's moon Phobos eclipsing the Sun, and the second, Deimos. OMG this is SO COOL

No hemos reducido velocidad alguna. El ritmo de contagios crece como el cuadrado del tiempo y los casos totales como su cubo (aprox). Naturalmente, a más casos totales menor el *porcentaje* de incremento (como t^2/t^3=1/t), pero no por una disminución de nuevos contagios. https://t.co/u8RiSsXShP

The UK should aim, by well-targeted R and D, to render clean energy as cheap as coal. We'd thereby amplify our 'net zero' efforts by enabling poor countries to achieve this goal too --a better bet than the Cummings-backed scheme to suck CO2 expensively from the air
