When we're trying to build a #movementofmovements
we are embarked on a hard path
We need to be resilient
We need to be undone by what we learn
Being 'good hearted' is not enough
Being 'kind' is not enough
Justice, like #Love demands more
We must be changed to bring #change
@XRSlough @XRLiberation @ExtinctionR @XRLondon @farhanaclimate @XrYouth @XRTheBeacon Because, if the demands of #justice do not operate at all levels of our organising - in our thinking, our learning, our speaking, our hearing, our writing, our acting - the outcomes will not be #Just.

We will compound #injustice

Equality
Dignity
Respect
Justice

#Change
@XRSlough @XRLiberation @ExtinctionR @XRLondon @farhanaclimate @XrYouth @XRTheBeacon We must ask ourselves with vigilance &honesty
"How am I benefitting from structures of injustice.
How does my privilege aid me whilst harming others.
How do the oppressions I suffer under teach me how to reach out with #radicalempathy to those who suffer in different ways?"

People with courage exist.

We allow children to be kept in concentration camps.

America disgusts me.
I can't wait to go on trial for over 3 years of my life against #TheState!

The #CityOfPortland wants me in jail and I will demonstrate that my peaceful #FreeSpeech was both entirely truthful and correct. #Portland's City Council colluded with @G4S to sign a $10 million contract.
Mayor #TedWheeler's cowardly City Council rammed-through a new 5-year contract without public testimony, and while ignoring KNOWN PUBLIC DISAPPROVAL.

@G4S security also armed, trained & included #OmarMateen in their "security agent" ranks - the #Pulse mass-shooting killer of 49.

#TheLeft agenda 4 stages:
1. Demoralisation 25 yrs
- exposed one generation to ideology marxism/leninism pumped in without being challenged
- people unable to realise disinformation
2. Destabilisation 2-5 yrs
- most critical stage (nation's institutions slowly undermined & collapsed, creating a slide into a chaotic or revolutionary state)
- impact what matters
#Economy
#ForeignRelations
#DefenceSystems
3. Crisis - violent change of #power & structural #change of #economy

How to be a deliberate educator with @CincyIM @mededsall @DrDanSchumacher @Midwest_MedPeds @kelzj3

1. Be systematic, thoughtful & innovative with curriculum development

Use Kern’s 6 steps to curriculum development
#ICRE2019
2. Frame educational activities towards the learner, not the teacher

Work towards #coproduction

#ICRE2019
3. Take a scholarly approach

#PaidPidis are trolling @nsitharaman for her statement on #OlaUber being responsible for #autosectorslowdown

That was just 1 reason she gave, not the only one

As mother is 2 #Millennials, I agree with her - consumer tastes are changing

#SayItLikeNirmalaTai
#BoycottMillennials
Today #Millennials prefer to take an AC #OlaUber instead of-

- buying car

- paying EMIs

- legalities- insurances, papers, etc

- buying parking space (which in Mumbai is costlier than price of car)

- finding parking space in busy streets or paying steep parking charges
Many #Millennials aren’t in love with the idea of #buyingHouse either

Today, the concept of #LifelongJob has gone out of the window & people are on the #move in the #job market

Hence #renting & changing homes make more sense than investing in a house, a very #illiquid asset

Stark prospect. Oxygen deprivation. Can't be rest assured, w/ inherent risks of lack of Co2. Amassing looters, expunging such a large carbon footprint. Selling land for quick profits. #AmazonFire
2/n In sync with axes at the grind -- leading to inevitable deforestation. Coming dawn of no less, extinction of the planetary ecosystem. This disastrous outcome with many factors have been congregating for many years, now. #ClimateStrike
3/n And, where I helm. Nor in any respect "us" Aussies or elsewhere immune. The die has already been cast, and triggers of misuse — via politician's have ignited by fusion of friction. The vein has already been mined. Global problem besetting the world remains unresolved. #Change

(1) Ich bin einigen alten Menschen begegnet, die mir sagten:
"Toll dass ihr jungen Leute auf die Straße geht! Das haben wir damals auch gemacht."

Ok super, toll.
Und wie lange dauert es bis auch meine Generation so alt ist? Ach halt, dass wird es nicht mehr geben! #ClimateChange
(2) Meine Generation und diejenigen die jetzt geboren werden, erleben keine "sichere" Zukunft mehr. Wir befinden uns in einer Zeit der Steigerung fataler Krisen. Eine Kettenreaktion von ungeheurem Ausmaß wird gerade in Gange gesetzt und wir machen weiter wie bisher. #Klimakrise
(3) Diejenigen denen ich begegne, die sagen wie toll das doch ist, dass ich mich einsetze, aber dann null beisteuern und weiter dem Alltag nachgehen, sind kontraproduktiv. Sie überlassen es mir, meiner Generation, den aktiven und nur einem winzigen Teil der Bevölkerung. #Change

There was a super insightful fireside chat with @vkhosla and @NandanNilekani, moderated by @sharads, yesterday in Bangalore. My notes. Long thread.
@vkhosla: I have this fear that you can grow old when you retire, not retire when you grow old. So I hope I never retire. As long as you have interesting problems to work on, there's nothing more exciting to do than work on that.

THE REVOLUTION NOW HAPPENED YESTERDAY!

Don't tell me you missed the #RevolutionNow that had happened already🙄🤪🤣
That was when I referred to Amaechi as the GOC of Common Sense Revolution.....It happened in 2015 when we sacked PDP and Jonathan!

GOOGLE:
"In political science, a revolution (Latin: revolutio, "a turn around") is a fundamental & relatively sudden change in political power & political organization which occurs when the population revolts against the government, typically due to perceived oppression".
#CHANGE
Now, that SPONTANEOUS action by NIGERIANS across the 774 LGAs in 2015 was the clear definition of #RevolutionNow
Many VOWED that it would never happen, but nobody could stop an idea whose time has come.
That's the #SpiritOfRevolution, you don't CAJOLE people into it...#Change

1. Life is about change. We change jobs, school, how we look, teachers, neighborhood and so on. God is always doing new things in your life, and if you don't constantly adjust, you might be praying about something God has already done. #Change #PreparingForYourNextSeason
2. For God to move you from season to season, you will have to go through change. All through the Bible from the earliest days of Abraham, you will discover that the people that enjoyed God's blessings were the ones that opened their heart to change.
3. Many times we are not even ready for the answers to the type of requests we make from God. Sometimes when we receive the answers to our prayers, we shut down. And that's because God is pushing us to get out of our comfort zone.

1/ "If doctors and nurses #clocked out when their paid #hours were finished, the effect on patients would be calamitous. Doctors and nurses know this, which is why they don’t shirk.

The system knows it, too, and takes advantage." @danielleofri nyti.ms/31ma6Qz
2/ "Increasingly, though, I’ve come to the uncomfortable realization that this #ethic that I hold so dear is being cynically #manipulated.

With mergers and streamlining, it has pushed the #productivity numbers about as far as they can go."
3/ "By now, corporate medicine has milked just about all the 'efficiency' it can out of the system."

I often think about this from an educator perspective too. My residents often say 'I just don't know how I can be any more #efficient" #MedEd

@Priyanka_Dayal What is confirmed here is that @UHC “put the bottom line above [Kate Weissman] as a patient.” @Priyanka_Dayal, you have helped place health payers on notice. Denials for proton therapy and violations of ERISA will not stand. The status quo is unsustainable and #change is coming.
@Priyanka_Dayal @UHC Very smart person right here 👇🏻
@Priyanka_Dayal @UHC Most painful abt certain aspects of the piece is attempt to provide legitimacy to insurance practices that violate the law & deny millions of valid health claims. Lending credence to hackneyed industry arguments is, to quote a federal judge, “immoral and barbaric.” #protontherapy

@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!

The #mind is a #coward, for those who listen to it become utterly cowardly. The mind is not an #adventurer, it is very #cautious. It takes every step with #thinking and #calculation until it is #certain that there is no #risk.
When everything is going good the mind comes in and says "watch out!" Because you listen to the mind's #fears you stop living. The mind would keep you always the same, never taking #risks.

Newness is an #enemy to the #mind, sameness is its #friend.
To #laugh is to #risk appearing a #fool

A #data informed look at how the #human experience of #lawyering has changed over time.

Just as #clients need better #value propositions, #law firms need better business models. Meaningful #legal #transformation will occur where the two intersect.

H/T to @augierakow @robsaccone for the post #inspirelegal 🤓 email chain that #inspired this tweetable.

(Bc I’m a tweetable factory. 🤷🏻‍♀️)
Another reaction to this @wihender post: we NEED to deal with #automation anxiety in #legal.

Legacy models of law practice aren’t built for the pace of #business and volume of #information of the #digital age.

More #hours from more #lawyers can’t be the default answer.

#Understanding is the only objective #rule.

#Observe and #Learn from other #people, make your own rules for your subjective #life. But never #impose your rules on others because ii will be a indirect #violence.
The person who follows #rules everywhere, he will be a #misfit.

He becomes like frozen ice.

#Rules creates #superficial #boundary.
#Rules can #change your #actions, your #behaviour to certain extent but it won't change you.

You are not you actions , you are not your behaviour. These are just on #periphery. You are much #deeper, the #centre. The changes in the periphery can't #bring change in the centre.

Start with #desire.

One has to begin with desiring something that cannot be achieved by desiring. But if you are aware of this fact - if you are aware of the fact that you are desiring something that cannot be desired - it helps. At any moment, you can take the #jump.
With the #mind we cannot understand anything which is effortless. Mind means effort. The faculty of the mind is to do something; it is an instrument for doing. The very faculty of mind is to #achieve something, to gain some desire.
You cannot begin with no #desiring. The mind will make this non-desiring also the desired object.

The mind will create new desire and say, “Okay, I will try not to desire.” It will say, “Really, it looks fascinating. I will try to do something so that this no desiring happens.”

We have all seen people act the fool at airports, cinemas, in traffic, at hospitals etc. We have all heard them say that nonsensical, infantile, conceited irrational phrase "do you know who I am" when they are being corrected for doing the wrong things.
We have seen people who get up during a flight to open the overhead lockers while the seatbelt signs were on attack air hostesses for telling them to respect themselves and abide by the rules and regulations.
We have seen fellow Nigerians at the toll gate drive all the way to the end with no respect for queues and order, and expect to be treated as kings. We have seen them talk down to security at malls whose job is to check everyone coming in irrespective of who they are.

You can’t understand where we are today without understanding where we’re coming from. At least 7 TRILLION Naira in unpaid debts/liabilities, accumulated between 1999-2015, inherited by Buhari Administration.

All now being paid/settled. Even amidst relatively-low oil prices.
Look at Salaries/Pensions arrears. Examples abound: Nigerian Airways staff laid off 2003/4,unpaid until 2018. Delta Steel Co, Ex-Biafra Police Officers (pardoned since 2000)

See this thread from earlier this year by former Finance Minister @HMKemiAdeosun:
