Se hai la (s)fortuna di nascere con una vagina ti viene insegnato da subito che il mondo per te può essere più pericoloso. Quando sviluppi inizi a notare gli sguardi degli uomini che si soffermano su un seno florido o su un culo a mandolino, da qui inizi a cambiare.
Cambi modo di vestire "forse la minigonna o gli shorts meglio di no perché poi mi sento nuda e attiro sguardi, meglio mettere il reggiseno così non si vedono i capezzoli, le scollature meglio evitarle altrimenti non mi guardano negli occhi".
E comunque tutto questo non basta perché non importa se sei carina o meno, o se sei in tuta, ci sarà sempre lo stronzo che ti suonerà il clacson dalla macchina guardandoti con la faccia arrapata, ci sarà sempre il demente che ti urlerà "a fataaaa" mentre attraversi sulle strisce.

While all attention is on #COVID19 our National School of Tropical Medicine @BCM_TropMed (work led by @Rojelio) found widespread toxocariasis in low-income areas of #NYC, led by the #Bronx.

Thank you @CathFlowers for introducing us to city leaders/reps…
A reason this is significant: Earlier in @JAMAPsych (my first paper in a psychiatric journal) I highlighted the role of toxocariasis for its role in developmental delays among socioeconomically disadvantaged kids (based on work from @sunydownstate)…
Finally with Profs. Robin Gasser @unimelb and Ali Rostami we estimated the seroprevalence of toxocariasis… Image

Deloitte, 2017: "Operations will cease to be delivered by humans."

Deloitte: The #Future of Operations, Deloitte Global Impact Report, Nov 13 2017


#Covid19 is the conduit to the #4IR now in full motion. As people come to terms w/ what is being forced upon humanity, we will soon regret that we did not unite to oppose to draconian lockdowns/expanding surveillance that will serve to protect/insulate ruling classes from revolt.
#UBI (universal basic income) is a tool designed by the rich to stave off #Molotov cocktails - while at the same time enriching themselves even further. The ruling class knows full well what they are unleashing - but the citizenry does not.

While the other four boroughs take a welcome slight rightward turn, the #Bronx continues its trajectory of increased deaths in #NYC from #Covid19.

Now one person in 1,262 in the Bronx has lost their life to the pandemic

Data from…
Deaths are a lagging indicator, colleagues at @MontefioreNYC are seeing fewer new cases presenting, so hopefully the curve will decelerate in the #Bronx.

Now one in 1,154 in the borough has died from #COVID19.
@MontefioreNYC Turning the corner, literally. A long road ahead, but #NYC is getting on top of the #COVID19 pandemic.
