نصيحة: لا تقارن نفسك ولا تنشغل بغيرك إطلاقا. حدد أهدافك. اصرف وقتك في القراءة والدراسة والكتابة والتفكير الإبداعي والناقد في تخصصك. تواصل مع المتخصصين لطلب النصيحة وناقشهم. لا تخدع نفسك وغيرك بالدخول في إنجازات وهمية. كن واثقا بالله ثم بقدراتك. اخلق لنفسك البيئة المناسبة للنجاح.

My friend @CJHandmer reminded me today of @DARPA’s $25M program award to @moderna_tx, announced 2013. This award was made over a year before the announcement and helped catalyze Moderna’s private investment rounds. World-changing impact from DARPA (again)https://t.co/nBtroLOzgW pic.twitter.com/CvVk6bvZI4

Per 40 anni non hanno finanziato la ricerca di base perché non c'erano le risorse nel bilancio dello stato. Ora arrivano 220 MLD e alla ricerca vanno le briciole perché "verrà finanziata col bilancio ordinario". Ma chi volete prendere in giro? La scienza non porta voti. Finora. https://t.co/3tIIsBir3O

We hit ZERO cases on the UIUC campus (@Illinois_Alma) yesterday (out of 7443 tests yesterday)! At first I thought I was misreading the data.

Last day of the last week of the semester! A nice way to end the academic year. pic.twitter.com/ATWF3t5Xqs

Wonderful thread by @jljcolorado on history of aerosols vs. droplets - how entrenched assumptions and powerful individuals can prevent a field moving forward.

The quantum physicist Max Planck said science advances one funeral at a time. Sadly here it was > 3 million. https://t.co/tPa9yjohGT

If you see someone walking around outdoors wearing a mask even though the CDC says it’s safe to go without that’s a good opportunity to mind your own business.

My ask to the global community who is engaging in conversation re:TMT is to learn to listen, keep listening, keep reading, keep learning.

If you want to talk about it, think about why you are doing it and the 💥full💥 extent of what the impact your words will have.
