This week’s photograph, taken in Washington, DC (of course) is of three women who are making history:
Brianna Titone (@BriannaforHD27), Colorado HD27, the first Colorado State Legislator who is transgender
Monika Nemeth (@TheMonikaNemeth), ANC3F Commissioner, the first elected official in Washington, DC who is transgender
Danica Roem (@pwcdanica), Delegate, 13th District, Virginia House of Delegates, the first House of Delegates member who is transgender
It was a delight to be in their presence and watch them lead.
I’m so happy this century turned out as great as I thought it would 🙂 .
History not only because of who they are, what they do, too
We did it. We just voted to expand Medicaid to 3,700 of my constituents and more than 300,000 uninsured Virginians. This is the product of the votes you cast, the doors you knocked, the phone calls you made, the donations you contributed and the word you spread. Thank you!!! pic.twitter.com/1nHuBRkX9m
Thanks for publishing my photographs, @ggwash, and for helping DC stay walkable 🙂 .
Isn’t Washington, DC beautiful?
Urbanist author Philip Langdon uses six neighborhoods around the country of varying density, age, urban character, and geographical location as case examples for which kinds of built environments lead to places that are walkable, community-oriented, pleasant to live in, and economically successful.
In English: following weight loss, people on lower carbohydrate diets were able to eat more food to keep their weight stable than people on high carb low-fat diets, putting another nail in the coffin of low fat diets and “calories-in/calories-out” – weight may be more dependent on hormonal interaction with food (insulin/ghrelin/leptin) than on simple number of calories eaten.
“Change in total energy expenditure, the primary outcome, in intention-to-treat (top) and per protocol (bottom) analyses. Data are shown as mean change from start of test phase, with whiskers representing 1 standard error above and below the mean. P tests uniformity across diet groups for average of changes at midpoint and end of test phase.”Ebbeling CB, Feldman HA, Klein GL, Wong JMW, Bielak L, Steltz SK, et al.

This is not a study of plant-based or plant-free nutrition.
Toward Common Ground in Nutrition Scientific argument often aligns with personal ethics. 👉Vegans cite studies on benefits of low-fat. 👉Low-carb dieters highlight benefits of meat. But these biases don't reflect modern realities, as we argue in BMJhttps://t.co/JryK0syiTW
