Fun Fact

That's a 78% increase in the number of heads of state and national governments on Twitter from 2011. Which means Twitter is taking over the world. And we're ok with that.

Watched #HumanNatureFilm with my husband, who has a very limited biology background. It made the information easily accessible, and we both learned a lot. @DanRather, thank you for this example of how we can continue to share science and develop understanding for everyone.

Wow #HumanNatureFilm is a mind blowing example of science and it’s potential power. Potential being the operative word. Brilliant and challenging bio-chem! Mind blowing! @DanRather thank you

The Forest Owlet was thought to be extinct until it was rediscovered in 1997—113 years after the last recorded sighting! It has a distinct rectangular head with bright yellow eyes and strong talons for catching large prey. It inhabits patches of forests across central India. https://t.co/38rL1Of3Gv

Finished #WhatUnitesUs. Convinced that both sides of the spectrum would benefit from this work. @DanRather has clearly laid out in no uncertain terms what citizenship and patriotism requires of each and every one of us. We can do this. We can be the country we need to be.

"Are we playing God?" Such challenging, interesting, important questions raised in #HumanNatureFilm. And just when you think you know where you are with it, you get the second part of David's story. Much thanks to @DanRather & the rest who made this! Need to rewatch.

I think my love of news first came from early memories of my grandparents watching @DanRather Just finished #WhatUnitesUs and will now share with my 94 yr old gram who survived Covid in the spring and is now “bored” in her nursing home! https://t.co/3xHjW2OhpJ

I’ve had #WhatUnitesUs on my Kindle for awhile yet and it is not a quick read. It is a nice easy drive across country where you just don’t feel like speeding, but rather enjoy the beautiful scenery of the writing!! I love this book!!

@DanRather watched #HumanNatureFilm last night with my preteen minions. Fascinating an understatement. Started looking into ALL your media. Impressed is an understatement. I will be slowly discovering Dan Rather’s “after retirement” world... Thank you for being an amazing human

Quoted @AmyRNew

I suggested #WhatUnitesUs to my book club as our November read. Now I have to come up with some thought-provoking discussion questions. Ideas? (@DanRather, would love to include a question from you, if you have a moment.)

I'm honored that you chose #WhatUnitesUs for your book club. Here's a discussion question: Who or what shaped your definition of patriotism? I would be interested to hear from others about discussion questions around the book and if they have read it with a book club. https://t.co/hFi7ZeZjg0

Best part of quarantining? Life slowing down and listening to my friend @DanRather; Watching #HumanNatureFilm is life changing!

Always been fascinated by biology, despite not being great @ it (1 reason I changed my major in college). After seeing numerous tweets about #HumanNatureFilm, I finally watched & was mesmerized. Interested to see how this #CRISPR is used, particularly the ethics of it all

@DanRather I watched #HumanNatureFilm after all the comments I'd seen on here. Totally fascinating, mind-blowing, and most definitely thought provoking.

@DanRather I picked up these books for my holiday reading @BrazosBookstore in your native Houston. I just started #WhatUnitesUs. Obama will have to wait. https://t.co/ToiZ6nE4cY

Just finished watching #HumanNatureFilm on #Netflix. Highly recommended if you enjoy science, documentaries, and pushing the boundaries of human potential. Lots of interesting things to think about and discuss!
