I know I have the gene that makes me a history geek. While reading Denise Minger’s book, Death by Food Pyramid: How Shoddy Science, Sketchy Politics and Shady Special Interests Have Ruined Our Health, I was attracted to the analysis by Yerushalmy and Hillboe about the association between fat intake and mortality, published in 1957 …

Thanks for using my photos in this profile of the Petworth neighbhorhood, @urbanturf_dc. I agree, you’re worthy 🙂 . Additional photos of the neighborhood below, enjoy. The “not-yet-worthy” moniker given to the northwest DC neighborhood ten years ago doesn’t apply anymore.Source: Petworth: A Decade Later, Much Has Changed
Isn’t Washington, DC beautiful? More photos below, of the iconic Howard Theatre (@HowardTheatre), in Duke Ellington Square, at sunrise, in the Shaw neighborhood, Washington, DC USA.
Thanks (again) for publishing my photo, @ggwash. It’s of the now-rejunivated 14th Street NW, in Washington, DC (USA) on a warm day in February, 2017.

I wrote this probably-cryptic tweet, that I would follow up on in this blog post.
Version 11.0 of Emoji has been released, link below.
Still no inclusion of transgender or intersex symbols, or the transgender pride flag.
We knew these symbols wouldn’t be included this round, because our proposal, submitted in July, 2017, and then re-submitted in December, 2017, was returned with questions, which we’re in the process of answering:
It’s not a secret – I like to take pictures and I like innovation safaris 🙂 .
With that in mind, the tweets below caught my eye.
I decided to do what I enjoy while perusing the aisles of the grocery store to visualize American Heart Association’s Heart-Check. I think there’s truth in both tweets.
My results are below. They include products that used to have the Heart-Check seal but no longer do, products that have the Heart-Check seal, some healthy, some not – there’s still sugar-sweetened cereals with the seal, products that don’t have the AHA seal but an AHA-like seal placed by food manufacturers, which stretches credibility in my mind and causes confusion (Chocolate Cheerios?), Other products whose packaging was amusing in terms of subtle health claims/non-claims.
Thanks for publishing my photograph, German publication @queer_de. The piece alerted me to a very useful piece of research completed by Ipsos (@_Ipsos) in collaboration with UCLA’s Williams Institute: Global Attitudes Toward Transgender People. It’s a survey of almost 20,000 people in 27 countries and it shows that the world is learning to ❤️ better. …
