Doing research about medicine rules because you grow up in a culture that's constantly affirming the message that men are the calm, rational gender that thrives in The Sciences™ and women are the sappy, emotional gender that thrives in The Humanities™, but all of the findings in studies about male vs. female doctor performance are like "Yeah the average female surgeon blows the average male surgeon out of the water, it's not even fucking close, don't even let a man NEAR a scalpel at this point."

Just read a scientific article that found that we ADHD folks tend to focus on the cost of a task more than the benefits and that medication helps us see the benefits of tasks more which helps with motivation for hard tasks.
And god does that make sense to me, it explains so much! It explains why it's so hard to get anything done no matter how important to me the end result is. I procrastinate even for things I really want like making chocolate chip cookies. My brain just thinks of all the things I would need to do to get those cookies and gives up instead of thinking of how amazing it would be to have freshly baked cookies.

Banana bread with whipped cream cheese and a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar motivating me to study this morning. The weather has really been sapping my energy lately & I need to start catching up on work.
In other news, an abstract i helped collect data for was accepted to a conference this year, which I’m happy about!

While you were masking and social distancing I was smoking dank clouds.
While you were doing patient triage and intubation I was smoking dank clouds.
While you were performing medical research and analyizing spike proteins I was smoking dank clouds.
And now that the world is on fire and the deltacron variants are at your gate you have the audacity to come to me and ask for my bong resin?

“In honor of such a round date, two million have been added to the server today, namely 2,337,229 new articles,” neuroscientist turned scientific paper pirate Alexandra Elbakyan said in a blog post announcing the upload.
According to Elbakyan, most of the more than 2 million articles come from Netherlands based publisher Elsevier—which often leads the legal charge against Sci Hub—and international publisher Springer. There’s 398,548 articles about medicine, 184,598 about engineering, 171,929 about chemistry, and 7 dentistry articles. “Nothing surprising, these are the largest publishers today,” Elbakyan said.
It’s a huge upload and a sign of strength and defiance from a long embattled website. In 2015, a judge ruled that the site violated U.S. copyright and ordered an injunction against its operators. In 2017, another U.S. court awarded publisher Elsevier $15 million in damages related to copyright violations. In 2019, the U.S. Department of Justice opened an investigation into the site for alleged ties to Russian intelligence agencies.
But Elbakyan lives in Russia and it's been hard for U.S. officials to collect that cash or shut down the site. When it is threatened, its users come together to back up the data. In May of this year, when it looked as if the site may go down, its users rallied together to back up its 77 terabytes of data.
All that collected human knowledge was spread across 85 million articles. On the site’s birthday, it’s grown just a little more.

How the Sun Affects Asteroids in Our Neighborhood
It’s no secret the Sun affects us here on Earth in countless ways, from causing sunburns to helping our houseplants thrive. The Sun affects other objects in space, too, like asteroids! It can keep them in place. It can move them. And it can even shape them.
Tumblr media
Asteroids embody the story of our solar system’s beginning. Jupiter’s Trojan asteroids, which orbit the Sun on the same path as the gas giant, are no exception. The Trojans are thought to be left over from the objects that eventually formed our planets, and studying them might offer clues about how the solar system came to be.
Over the next 12 years, NASA’s Lucy mission will visit eight asteroids—including seven Trojans— to help answer big questions about planet formation and the origins of our solar system. It will take the spacecraft about 3.5 years to reach its first destination.
How does the Sun affect what Lucy might find?
Place in Space
Tumblr media
Credits: Astronomical Institute of CAS/Petr Scheirich
The Sun makes up 99.8% of the solar system’s mass and exerts a strong gravitational force as a result. In the case of the Trojan asteroids that Lucy will visit, their very location in space is dictated in part by the Sun’s gravity. They are clustered at two Lagrange points. These are locations where the gravitational forces of two massive objects—in this case the Sun and Jupiter—are balanced in such a way that smaller objects (like asteroids or satellites) stay put relative to the larger bodies. The Trojans lead and follow Jupiter in its orbit by 60° at Lagrange points L4 and L5.
Pushing Asteroids Around (with Light!)
Tumblr media
The Sun can move and spin asteroids with light! Like many objects in space, asteroids rotate. At any given moment, the Sun-facing side of an asteroid absorbs sunlight while the dark side sheds energy as heat. When the heat escapes, it creates an infinitesimal amount of thrust, pushing the asteroid ever so slightly and altering its rotational rate. The Trojans are farther from the Sun than other asteroids we’ve studied before, and it remains to be seen how sunlight affects their movement.
Cracking the Surface (Also with Light!)
Tumblr media
The Sun can break asteroids, too. Rocks expand as they warm and contract when they cool. This repeated fluctuation can cause them to crack. The phenomenon is more intense for objects without atmospheres, such as asteroids, where temperatures vary wildly. Therefore, even though the Trojans are farther from the Sun than rocks on Earth, they’ll likely show more signs of thermal fracturing.
Solar Wind-Swept
Tumblr media
Like everything in our solar system, asteroids are battered by the solar wind, a steady stream of particles, magnetic fields, and radiation that flows from the Sun. For the most part, Earth’s magnetic field protects us from this bombardment. Without magnetic fields or atmospheres of their own, asteroids receive the brunt of the solar wind. When incoming particles strike an asteroid, they can kick some material off into space, changing the fundamental chemistry of what’s left behind.
Follow along with Lucy’s journey with NASA Solar System on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, and be sure to tune in for the launch at 5 a.m. EDT (09:00 UTC) on Saturday, Oct. 16 at nasa.gov/live.
Make sure to follow us on Tumblr for your regular dose of space!
