"When you think that your walk is profitless and a failure, and you can hardly persuade yourself not to return, it is on the point of being a success, for then you are in that subdued and knocking mood to which Nature never fails to open"
~Henry D. Thoreau, Journal, 27 Jan 1860

Your loved ones getting vaccinated is unequivocally a step forward. It would be safer to visit with your parents or in-laws after they’ve gotten both #vaccine doses, but the safest plan is to wait until you are also vaccinated, @colleenfkelley tells @TIME

I've written >110k words in my #PlantHunter science memoir, covering topics in #ethnobotany, #microbiology, #WomenInSTEM issues... and the part that has me stuck in revisions: description of 1st kiss with my husband. Any tips #authors?

Super excited to see our work on #staph virulence in #atopicdermatitis out in JID 😊 #dermatology #eczema
Staphylococcal burden in atopic dermatitis flares is well established, but the role of strain specific virulence needs exploration. We show correlation between hemolytic capacity of staphylococci and disease severity in pediatric patients. @QuaveEthnobot https://t.co/UDczbu4z2D

Happy #PhytochemicalFriday! Today: kaempferol - a bitter-tasting compound that is found in a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, particularly capers - the flower buds of Capparis spinosa (Brassicales). Kaempferol is an antioxidant and features in many traditional medicines.
Doesn't get better than this: #cats and #naturalproducts!
Nepetalactol was found to increase plasma β-endorphin levels in cats and also repels the mosquito, Aedes albopictus. Thus, self-anointing behavior helps to protect cats against mosquito bites. https://t.co/w9JXmRS9Xe
Fascinating study on the Mediterranean sea grass Posedonia oceanica!! Used in traditional medicine in Sicily to treat hemorrhoids and new study shows it also plays a role in cleaning up plastic waste in the 🌊 oceans!! Plants are too cool!!🤩🌿
