👓 Call for help: We need to address suicide risk in autistic women | Spectrum | Autism Research News

Alas, I’m reading this article a few weeks too late to have been aware to do so much more for a friend who in retrospect needed far more than I knew to give. I’m both gobsmacked and depressed about these numbers. I will miss Kim Hansen’s kindness and brilliance.

It’s been cold and rainy for longer than prior years. Today it’s actually been warm, and tonight there’s finally the intoxicating smell of Spring flowers in the air.

👓 [Update]: Will Twohey’s Building Be Saved? | ColoradoBoulevard.net

How many years has it been since Twohey’s was supposed to leave the building anyway? Will they ever really go? That’s the real headline… Of course it’s been several years since the food quality has hit rock bottom, so I suppose I don’t care that much anymore since I’m not planning to patronize them anymore.

Hat tip Chuck Chugumlung. He’d mentioned this to me a while back, but glad to finally have some time to catch it. Chuck is definitely doing some interesting work both in and for Pasadena.

Removed some old (and hopefully unused) plugins from my website yesterday. I probably need to do a full audit soon. With any luck it’ll speed the website up a bit–something I should specifically look at in the near future.

👓 How long do floods throughout the millennium remain in the collective memory? | Nature

This is intriguing particularly when thinking back to our earliest world literatures which all involve flood stories. I wonder what the equivalent sorts of things would be for C. elegans, drosophila, etc. for testing things on smaller timescales?
