Positive news in the fight against #diabetes and #kidney disease came last month, according to a study published by researchers at the @cdcgov. The incidence of end-stage renal disease caused by diabetes has decreased in the United States during the years 2000 to 2014.
Facts are a thing. Evidence is a thing. .
I can’t believe that anyone would ban “evidence-based” or “science-based”. But they are banned at the CDC. .
Science is what makes us progress as humans. I am a researcher looking to improve outcomes for liver transplants. We need to use evidence-based science to solve problems. .
This isn’t political. But banning these words is not going to get us any closer to a cure for diseases. .
Please stand up for science and medicine. .
Friday night thoughts ❤️ Today I reached out to a mentor and she reminded me that being myself would get me where I needed to be in my life. SO incredibly grateful to have the opportunity to seek advice and insight from amazing successful individuals 🙏🏾 #chashmishdiaries
Happy Friday! #Science 🥂

・・Uber happy our newest paper was just accepted for pub in MSSE. This took almost 5 years to pull off.
This study was important for 4 reasons: 1. It's one of the 1st studies to combine performance, biomechanics/movement analysis, & muscle physiology.
2. We found a significant difference in fiber type % between the dominant and non-dominant leg.
3. Dom leg was stronger, faster, but had MORE SLOW-TWITCH FIBERS.
4. We highlight the utter importance of honesty in science. Although the group averages indicated the results presented in #3 (above), we actually didn't find any individual subjects with that actually occurring. ...i.e despite the group means reaching statistical significance, nobody actually had a dominant leg that was stronger, faster, and had more slow twitch. We hope this helps people understand how "science" can be very, very deceiving.
Big thanks to the team @cspfullerton@joseadanarevalo@drsklynn@drjimmybagley@musclephyslab

Congrats to Novoheart, a Cove tenant, on their feature in CBC News. The company has created a smaller scaled heart-like structure from stem cells to test pharmaceutical drugs.

Marine algae as antiaging skin care? 9th Annual conference on Skin Aging on February 26’2018 presents recent research and scientific finding on aging and skin aging.If you are planning to visit Portugal in February, get a glimpse of recent research for skin aging as well.
Dr. Nancy Foster Scholar @marinebioalex dubbed this "the cutest squishy fish" and we have to agree with her. Have you ever seen such an adorable fish?
This is a sea toad, a member of the Chaunax genus. Researchers aboard the NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer spotted it while investigating deep habitats of the Gulf of Mexico.
Join us tomorrow (Tuesday) at 2 p.m. ET for a Facebook Live with Alex and other Okeanos researchers to learn more about the expedition! Get the details at the link in our profile. .

Epic submission by @rob_shark86 diving with #OneOcean learning more about shark behavior in pack forming schooling species. To observe real natural shark in their home environment without removing them to an aquarium or worse taking their life 😢. Sharks Need Your Help even if you do not want to dive with or research them media and politics need to know that the general public demands real and factual environmentally conscious facts about sharks!!! #WritePetitions#TalktoyourSenator our team is building next submission ‘SharkBill’ to ban the purposeful capture and take of shark in Hawai’i without documented permit for specific parameters #research#culturalpractice etc 🦈🦈🦈 #mustlovesharks 💙
Trying out a new technique, incorporating some video into my black background work. It’s a little trial and error, but it works with this male Blue-throated Sapphire, you can see in real time how the gorget feathers reflect the light at different directions. @audubonsociety

After all this time, I’m still in awe of the ability for Hummingbird feathers to reflect light, when they move from side to side, it’s almost as if a lightbulb is turned on. The Blue-throated Sapphire is one of the species in northwestern Costa Rica, that has a particularly stunning gorget. This adult male is one of the many currently visiting our feeder array. @audubonsociety
Some of you may remember hearing about #Bitcoin back in the day (circa 2010-2012). To many, it was a simply a concept. Who ever thought that something intangible could be worth so much? In the last year, Bitcoin has made that transition from being #conceptually valuable to.. well.. #valuable as its #reality. Who's excited to see what lies in store for Bitcoin this coming year? I'm feeling some great things are about to happen!
