Android : Colleagues. There is a concerted effort to weaponize anti-Chinese sentiment for political gain. It impacts our Chinese students, postdocs, friends, and coworkers.

Our silence is complicity. Speak out, act up.

Twitter Web App : To clarify: the graph here is # of gallons saved every month, which can be taken as a measure of # of miles driven every month. Is this the beginning of the second wave of #COVID19?

Twitter Web App : Heres a definitive stat on how much #ElectricVehicles were driven every month. Needless to say, #COVID19 has played a huge role in reducing automobile emissions. Unfortunately, for the month of May, possibly due to relaxations, we are back to pre-quarantine levels of usage!

If there was a deadline to submit a proposal/paper, I'm sure the PI would make an exception, so I think the PI should help the student submit/graduate in time.

Twitter Web App : HartreeF⌬cker Never tried it, but if the end goal is DFT-based sp/geometry_optimization calculations, why not petachem? I never benchmarked GPU instances on the cloud, so I can't comment on the timings. If licensing is an issue, I would second PSI4 as others mentioned.

Twitter Web App : I am not convinced I have seen it all with Trump 2016 and Bloomberg 2020. I am awaiting Bezos 2024, where he skips all the ad buys, social media buys - the entire charade and buys America outright with his loose pocket change.…
