@AsoRock must be mindful not to let agencies like @FRSCNigeria heat up the polity by witch hunting and mindless income generation! I know no where in the world where you just mount barricades to stop any vehicle cut to look for reasons to book a driver for anything! @Gidi_Traffic
@AsoRock @FRSCNigeria @Gidi_Traffic It is very irresponsible of the heads of @FRSCNigeria to in 2019 not have data, equipment but just put officers on the road to create unnecessary crisis by waylaying vehicles! The change @AsoRock promised must include respect for Nigerians. @SANNigeria @TrafficChiefNG @PoliceNG
@AsoRock @FRSCNigeria @Gidi_Traffic If there is nothing hideous about stop and search, why mount it in a corner! Why risk the lives of humans! Initiatives like #VIO becomes idiotic when you clear vehicles by giving road worthiness cert, only for @FRSCNigeria officer to waylay law abiding citizens to look for fault!

#BalanceForBetter THREAD: For too long, women in our province have faced barriers to work, unequal pay and high levels of violence.
On #IWD2019 I’m so proud of the concrete steps that @RachelNotley and our government have taken to make REAL, positive change for women.
Steps like:
Creating the first standalone Ministry for the Status of Women in the country.
Proclaiming May as Sexual Violence Awareness Month.
Increasing supports for survivors of sexual violence + increasing funding for women’s shelters. #IWD2019
We passed Safer Spaces legislation allowing Albertans experiencing domestic violence to break a lease and flee their homes. This helped over 400 people in the first year after it was passed.
We covered the cost of abortion pill so it is free to all women who need it. #IWD2019

@Inspiringchang Let me start by appreciating the first lady, pastor Sumbo Adeoye for having me. It is indeed a great opportunity. #InspiringNewDimension #IWD2019 #BalanceforBetter
@Inspiringchang Just as pastor Sumbo said behind every glory there will always be a story. #InspiringNewDimension #IWD2019 #BalanceForBetter

On this #IWD19, I’d like to share one major experience that shaped my career. It was early in my banking career and I’d been working on a major project which came to a successful end when I was informed that I would be moving to a newly formed team... /1 #InspiringNewDimension
...under the leadership of a female senior colleague who most people had described as cold and hard. So my first thought was fear and trepidation, it turned out to be the turning point of my career, she was a very thorough boss who pushed me beyond limits #inspiringNewDimension
It was the days before all these buzzwords but I suffered from what is now called “impostor-syndrome”, that many women feel. And she reversed this, and continued to give me visibility beyond my peers in other units. We worked very hard and it paid off. #inspiringNewDimension

Happy #IWD2019!

What will you do to make our world a more equal place?

I will ask more women to stand for election.

Share this & reply with your pledge.

Some ideas to get you started 👇

#BalanceforBetter #EqualPower #DeedsNotWords #AskHerToStand (1/n)
Count the number of women standing as candidates or elected to office, speaking at events & writing articles.

Challenge parties, organisers and media outlets when they are not representative.
No one should miss out on education because they can’t afford sanitary products.

So buy extra when shopping & donate to a foodbank.

And write to your MP to ask them to support girls all across the UK getting free sanitary products in schools, colleges & unis.

After a jam-packed 2 days at #SciOut18🌪(thx @ASBMB & @rockedu_!) it was time to reflect! 🤔 Reflection is so important, but it can be hard to find ⏰ to really just think! 💭 Some of my thoughts 👉

What’s inside? 🧐 It’s FORMAMIDE! 🤗 Formally removing RNA’s form with formamide! 🤓 FORMAMIDE in loading buffer breaks up & replaces the bonds between bases holding RNA's shape together 👇

Bring on the heat! 🔥 To help denaturants get to the huddling hydrophobic bases, we add heat ♨️ 👉 gives molecules more energy so they can “pull apart” more easily ⏩ easier access 👍 More 👇
