JUST A THOUGHT FOR SHABBAT
1) #ShabbatShalom
In the late 19th Century & through the 20th, there was a theory of Jewish survival that came about that said that the Jewish People’s survival as an identity was due to antiSemitism. I have heard and read both Jewish and Gentile academics saying just that for many many years 2)
The problem is, that it is untrue. All Jews had to do to avoid antiSemitism is convert to Christianity or Islam. 3)

Over 100 residents joined the #Boston CHNA-CHIP Collaborative last night to discuss key assessment findings and vote on community priorities. Thanks to all who were able to attend and provide input for this important process! #BostonCHNA @HealthyBoston @cobth @LisaSWolff
#Boston is richly diverse in terms of financial, racial, ethnic, and linguistic population groups although this diversity is not equally distributed across neighborhood.” - one of the CHNA key data findings
#Boston residents identified a need for more #trauma-informed approaches to care, particularly for children and community of color. #BostonCHNA

*Thread* Was at a husting today AND when I highlighted the actual #waitinglist statistics for access to #healthcare #consultants and lack of #frontlinestaff #nurses & #GPs a sitting MEP & member of one our main political parties aimed to DISMISS the data... 1/
The data I presented was not compiled by me but by many prestigious organisations who represent #nurses #doctors #midwives #consultants #pharmacists #paramedics #carers #physios #OTs (tag anyone you wish here) 2/
The response I (and the audience got) was along the lines of “with technology data can be wrong” and “people don’t turn up to appointments”. I had no hestitation in finding an example and explained just how bloody difficult it can be for the #elderly to attend clinics... 3/

1/ A few days ago, my mom sent me an text, “Hey Gina, did you see the Mark Zuckerberg news? He said Facebook was going to focus on privacy and groups. Hope you’re great!”
2/ Like my mother, I had heard the news. Unlike my mother, I happen to be an expert on building groups around interests and passions on platforms other than Facebook.
3/ I’m a passionate believer that there should be millions of different social networks for every conceivable interest, goal, purpose, and lifestyle.

👆#TurnKey,Inc.: #SEC turning the (same)key in the lock

Surprised that commentators think there is anything new in this decision. It is simply a different type of argumentation. It is for the first time a #negative #definition of #ICO #regulation by #securities#laws. Thread👇
👉1. In Munchee Inc., SEC claims (sec.gov/litigation/adm…):
⛔️Munchee has no viable product
⛔️tokens sold are not usable, but will possibly be in the future
⛔️ICO will fund the development of the project
⛔️MUN price will vary AND reasonable expectation of future profits
⛔️#profits (or losses) depend solely on efforts of #Munchee #managers
⛔️#marketing MUN token in the manner to induces the purchasers to believe there is a profit expected solely for buying MUN and reselling it later.
⚠️a positive definition -> this IS a security

#Bitcoin ve #kriptopara fikrinin arkasında sadece #teknoloji yok. Sosyoloji ve iktisat gibi farklı disiplinlerden beslenen bir yapı var. #Cypherpunk bu yapının belkide omurgası. O yüzden bu flood cypherpunk hakkında! 👨‍💻🕵️‍♂️ #blockchain #crypto #community
#Cypherpunk’ı Şifrepunk olarak çevrilebiliriz, zaten yaygın olarak da bu çeviri kullanımda. Cypher = Şifre, Punk ise 70’lerin ortasında ifade özgürlüğü haraketi olarak ortaya çıkmış bir akım türüdür. Bundan dolayı Punk’ı özgün ismi ile kullanmak daha doğru olacaktır.
Cypherpunk, 1993'de Eric Hughes'in yazdığı "A Cypherpunk's Manifesto" ile ortaya çıkan, güçlü şifreleme ve gizlilik artırıcı teknolojilerin sosyal ve politik değişime giden bir yol olarak yaygın şekilde kullanılması fikrini savunan aktivistlere verilen lakaptır.

This #BIWisdom Friday I'd like to explore concepts of a #DataCulture. What do *you* think it is? How is it sustained by #Success and #Value? Does support from #BILeadership with a #CDO help? How important are the #Data #skills (maybe especially Literacy)? Join is at 1PM EST
Just a few minutes until this week's #BIWisdom. Join us to discuss #Data #culture . What might it be, how do you use it, how can you value it, or know if it is working.
Happy #BIWisdom to us all. I hope everyone had a fine week.

#observations after @YoastCon
1/6
The ordeal that brought forth my #renaissance climaxed almost exactly 10 yrs ago (late Jan 2009). Reclaiming myself (=healing) took about 8 years. Full destruction was necessary for rebirth. Once healed, I began rebuilding: myself ...

... my self esteem, my business, my brand.
Because of how life is, I basically had to do this on my own, with no true financial support from a partner or a family.
I was, though, emotionally and affectionately supported by a small crew of friends ...
3/6
In this process, I encountered and fell in love with the #WordPress #Community at what I discover over and over having been a magical nexus: #WCEU2016 in Vienna.
A relationship that gets rocky at times (as most do) but that also manages to always offer inspiration ...

Happy Friday to our #BIWisdom community! Welcome you our weekly discussions of all things Business Intelligence: Join us to discuss #data #analytics and all related matters.
Briefly to mention the estimable @howarddresner in his absence today from #BIWisdom while on a plane. Not sure if he's headed somewhere warmer than his native New Hampshire. Brr...
You know I'm going to mention the @RealBIEvent and encourage you to join us there. It really is quite different compared to so many other events. In some ways more thought provoking in its #BIWisdom diversity.

A wonderful walk in the Lake District today, but just before my pre-dinner nap (this holiday is LOVELY) a little thread about the requirement of “a PhD or equivalent” for the job that I’m SO EXCITED FOR YOU TO APPLY FOR with @AutisticaUK at @turinginst! turing.ac.uk/work-turing/re…
Here’s a little screen grab of the section in the essential requirements of the job description:
I tweeted yesterday about the #FullStack requirements of this job.

It seems pretty silly to require web development skills AND a PhD! They aren’t usually taught together.

I’ve had a lovely few days of doing NOTHING work related! I hope you have had some relaxation too.

BUT I do want to tell you about the “full stack” requirements of this AWESOME job that you should apply for to work with me & @AutisticaUK at @turinginst!

turing.ac.uk/work-turing/re…
Here are some screen grabs from the job ad that talk about what you need.... the essential requirements.
I was nervous writing this ad. It’s asking for A LOT to have someone join an academic project for a salary of between £34,000 and £40,000 if they can do ALL the #FullStack development! There are lots of jobs that would pay you a lot more!!

In late-August of 2010, my dear first-cousin was diagnosed with inoperable, non-curable, small-cell lung #cancer. He and I were raised like #siblings and cared for one another as brother and sister, a very close-knit family.
My #cousin was an amazing man, husband, and father to twin boys; who were only 14 when he died in September 2017. He died at his home, surrounded by his family and friends…just how he’d wished.
Of course, he only had these wishes after his experiences spending extended periods of time in clinics, hospitals, and laboratories. Blood draws, lung scans, injections, medications, #chemotherapy, hospitalizations, emergency room visits from all the awful side-effects of his...

So, I've waded through the Evangelical Alliance's new pastoral "guidelines" for interacting with trans people (ughh, the things I do to expose #transphobic #ciswits to the world), and let's just say it's time to tear this particular sh*t-bag a new hole.

So, straight off the bat, first page of text, the use of #language is . . . well, yeah, see for yourself:

"It is important to remember that transgender is not simply an issue to be debated;" - p5, #Transformed

*sigh*

When such language gets reinforced by insisting...

Now up: Zachary Brown, Lead Data Scientist at S&P Global on #DataScience and #OpenEducation for the enterprise. Dayjob: #AI, Sidehustle: building #digital skills using #opensource #ODSCWest @School_GC
#DigitalLiteracy - Why? Effective work today requires a lot of associated learning. @linuxfoundation @github #VersionControl #Visualization -- continuous learning is critical. Optimal tools & processes are probably not the ones you are using now (Matlab vs. Scikit-Learn)
Need an evolving understanding for what tools are available today to get your work done. If you want your business people to work with your #datascience team, they need to understand what data is and what it can do. Also helps to avoid chasing buzzwords and bling.

Starting "Voices without Frontiers" #VoicesIWS
A program by @IWS_Network to promote awareness about the challenges & lessons learned by #Immigrant and #International #WomenInScience

I was born & raised in Chicoral, Colombia. A tiny town in the middle of the Andes Cordillera.
I attended Nuestra Señora del Rosario school, located in Espinal, 15Km away from Chicoral. Due to the high heat by noon, all schools start really early back home. This meant, I had to wake up at 5am to attend school every morning since I was 4 years old. #VoicesIWS
I did well in math and science in elementary and high school, so I chose to study clinical microbiology. Although coming from a low-middle income family, I was able to attend university, thanks to my parents’ effort to prioritize education over other commodities. #VoicesIWS

Hello, everyone!

We're going to kickstart our weekly #GlobalEChats discussion thread. This week, we'll talk about #fitness #personal #trainer as #entrepreneurs and how #tech can change everything!

Ready? Let's go!
Let's first start with two possibilities in the future.

1. We no longer need humans as #PT personal trainers at the #gym or #field. All will be replaced by #tech and smart applications! 😲

2. Human PTs will still be demanded but will utilise #tech to improve their coaching!
Do you think #1 is truly possible? It seems a bit far-fetched, no?

Meet @ollinfit! Ollinfit is a set of three wearable sensors and smartphone app that work together as your personal trainer. Say what???

Using Ollinfit, you'll be able to workout without needing human coaching!

1/Children & young people with autism and learning disabilities who could be living in the community with specialist support are languishing for years in Assessment & Treatment Units, some of them locked up 24/7 in isolation rooms, bec of severe financial pressure on Local Auths
2/ At the same time, private providers running these ATUs are raking in profits, being paid £452m per yr in what has become a market driven provision where autistic and LD people are little more than commodities
3/ This in spite of the fact that caring for them in the community would be far less expensive not to mention far better for the individuals concerned, their quality of life, their security and safety and their wellbeing

#Dalitwomen are most often victims/survivors of sexual abuse, including of those that are not always legally identified as crimes. And the law has failed us. Progressive communities haven’t responded adequately either. It has been a lonely battle and will continue to be so.
Stories of sexual abuse, especially those that name Dalit men, are therefore uniquely triggering for us. We stand by the survivors, like we all need to, unequivocally, because we are victims ourselves.
We believe the victims, their EVERY WORD, because we’ve lived through the experience of being dismissed as liars so often, by friends and allies alike.
