Cuando estuve viviendo en Boston hice un curso de tiro que organizaba mi universidad junto a la Asociación Nacional del Rifle. Sin llegar a convertirme en un experto (ni ganas) sí que aprendí un par de cosas sobre la posesión de armas por parte de civiles.

Exciting news! @LHCbExperiment is announcing the observation of CP violation in charm decays. https://t.co/rehjfHPc72 What does that mean? A somewhat long thread.

We've lost an incredible person - & I've lost my best friend. My heart is shattered, but so proud to been part of her life. She's changed not just Ireland but the world. Please heed her words; the #HPVvaccine saves lives. For more than I can ever say, #ThankYouLaura xx pic.twitter.com/dPxE8DDmIH

Intriguing: improved determination of the Hubble constant (H0) from Hubble Space Telescope observations of Cepheids in the Large Magellanic Cloud, brings discrepancy with Planck CMB+LCDM inferred value to 4.4 sigma! https://t.co/T80dGucRjU pic.twitter.com/zf4Nw4sRni

On one hand, being a vocal climate science communicator can be detrimental to your academic job prospects

On the other hand, the past 5 years were the hottest on record, Mozambique and Nebraska are underwater, and California fire season is now year-round

A fractal impossible object, packed with impossibility at multiple scales!

Nidhal Selmi drew this. It's a blend of the Sierpinski triangle, a famous fractal, and the Penrose tribar, a famous "impossible object".

Let me explain how it's connected to sheaf cohomology.

Happy St Patrick’s Day! Today we remember that:
1. Indentured servitude, while terrible, was not comparable to intergenerational chattel slavery
2. Theresa May sucks
3. A lot of people treat today as a white pride day with a good cover story.
4. White pride is violent.

The mathematician Emmy Noether was born #OTD in 1882. She made groundbreaking advances in abstract algebra, and her eponymous theorems articulated the deep connection between symmetries and conserved quantities in physics.

A cube whizzes past at nearly the speed of light, c. What do you see? Lorentz contraction squashes the cube. But you *see* it as rotated and bent, since light from different parts of the cube take different amounts of time to reach you - and it's moved a lot by then!
