These are the 23 reasons why #TikTok is problematic in terms of #manipulation, #addiction and #privacy & why #children and #teenagers should be kept away from it:

(for those interested: the full article about the topic, with all relevant links: linkedin.com/pulse/i-tiktok…)
1- Reduced space for #autonomy and #choice; videos are pushed to the user since 1st use. In a web that respects human dignity, people - especially #children and #teenagers - should get used to choose and think about what they want to be exposed to
2- Increased potential of #manipulation and #exposure of younger and more impressionable audiences, as the content will be pushed to them and they will be hooked by age-inappropriate content (and be recommended more content like this)

Good Morning, “They” need another distraction—“Phoned Home” ..

Everything is going according to plan, “Nobody” Loves Humanity unconditionally …

Be careful who you follow, ask yourself the most important Question when listening to these “XRP RIDDLERS” or “in the know”
Accounts, #WHY do they avoid the Military ? …

“Nobody” & the Military are in complete control … Control is an illusion, THE PEOPLE are truly sin control & have all the POWER, THE PEOPLE/Children come first ..

The false reality being presented as “Reality, is the “reality”
Created by evil that GOOD has to SLOWLY awaken the people out of ..

Once awakened, the REALITY that is & ALWAYS has been/Always existed (hidden from humanity) becomes clear to those asleep. .

Really interesting 168-strong survey, though a shame that only 2 surrogate mothers responded, so with an unintentional focus on those who benefit from #surrogacy it collects key data with balance provided. Our analysis follows. Epic 🧵 1.
2. Same sex respondents (9), 5 admit to using ‘legal loopholes’ to access #commercialsurrogacy in #Ukraine – laws there only permit infertile heterosexual couples to apply for #surrogacy
3. Reason for choosing #surrogacy: #adoption was restricted or not available (this refers to other countries, UK does not discriminate legally against same-sex couples) but #surrogacy can be either expensive or cheap.

Finally, the #GoldacreReview is published! (During Parliamentary Easter holidays, mid-ping-pong on the #HealthAndCareBill...)

It's 221 pages - each PDF page is a double page spread - so this could be a lo-o-o-ong [Thread].

Here goes...
First point to note, in the Terms of Reference (p5), is that this is about "access to #NHSdata by #researchers, #commissioners, and #innovators" - i.e. #Planning and #CommercialReUse - so it is directly relevant to the operation of millions of people's #NationalDataOptOuts...

"systems that ensure #underrepresented groups are well represented" may (partly) refer to this "landmark review", which got off to a slow start:

Towards inclusive education
A necessary transformation
Australian government report
2019

Yet another plan lost to the exploitation of greedy lobbiests?

Nobody is "eligible or ineligible" for inclusion
All diversity is welcomed

What other protected trait owned & defined by those who *don't* have that trait?
Imagine gay men had to get a "certificate of gayness" from a straight man, for "accommodation" in an uninclusive environment?
A woman get a certificate of womanhood to be "accommodated" from a man?
Australia claims to be all about inclusion and fairness these days?
So why is including diversity so hard?
Why are there whole industries that profit from defining us in deficit terms?
And saying we are unreliable?
Why do we need certificatation from people who *aren't us*?

The #game of “economic moats” within most public #blockchains has made it hard for people to join in by forcing people to choose between geek and geeker. Go ahead and ask anyone new to #crypto how to get started and its like deer in headlights!

Time for a thread:
2/ Blockchain is a #technology that is meant to bring safety and freedom to you, yet most #dapps today have it's users completely at the control of the company that created it!
3/ When we try to use #blockchain networks, you feel like you are treated like a machine, instead of a person. Making people feel controlled and manipulated through poor system designs that have not fixed the hard part, treating you like a person.

Here's a fun #NINO - the UK's National Insurance Number - [Thread] to start the weekend 👇

Maybe I should do an #NHSnumber one sometime? It's a fascinating story, which (ironically) starts with these...
[With thanks to @guy_herbert, @TomSamaki, @PrivacyMatters & others for encouragement!]

Before I start a geeky 'deep dive' on the #NHSnumber, to provide some (personal/professional) context that will hopefully become apparent, I'll just drop these two images here:
So, to begin.

After the Second World War, in a time when we started to think (again) what a #civilised society would be, and when our leaders tried to agree #principles like #UDHR that might prevent the recurrence of genocide, and support #dignity and #HumanRights for all...

Excited to share our latest work - we use pan-neuronal 2 photon imaging to dissect how the #brain integrates multiple internal states to guide #food #choice! Fantastic work by @Dahaniel who took on this challenging project almost solo! #drosophila biorxiv.org/content/10.110… 1/21
We wanted to know what changes in the brain when animals #crave #foods. How do different internal states interact to change neuronal processing of #food #taste to alter feeding decisions? And can we use neurogenetics to identify causal brain regions driving food choice? 2/21
We had shown that when flies are protein deprived they increase their preference for protein-rich food like yeast. Food taste is key when deciding what to eat. But does the metabolic state alter taste processing and how do internal states change decisions? 3/21

Announcement from @fordnation sank my heart today. As an ER doctor, person of color and #Scarborough native, I feel defeated 😢. The measures are not going to get wave 3 under control. #BIPOC #ERdoc @SHNcares @torontolife @JustinTrudeau @SCMirror 1/
When I landed as an #immigrant in #Canada, my life started in #Scarborough. My parents (#heros) struggled to find jobs that matched their education. That didn't stop them from working hard / hustling even if it meant 2 jobs at times to keep bills paid and food on the table. 2/
My family lived in an apt building that had mostly racialized/middle-low income families (#affordability). Not much social distancing when large crowds wait for elevators (#EssentialWorkers) or use the shared laundry facilities. This pandemic brings back those vivid memories 3/

Liikuttaako? A report for the survey on physical activity for persons with a disability (n=1213) and the related survey conducted with sports clubs (n=334) has been published @FinnParalympic in cooperation with @ltsfi . Here are some key findings in English (1/9): Image
The majority (65%) of PWD were female. PWD were categorised into age groups (18 and below; 19–29; 30–64; 65+). 2/3 belonged to group 30–64 yrs. Most popular activity groups were private, other sports associations (not sport clubs!), and municipal groups. (2/9)
50% of PWD had to reduce physical activity and exercise due to #covid19; 70% move less than is recommended; 65% would like to move more. The cost, lack of an exercise partner or group, disability or state of health and fear of coronavirus were biggest barriers. (3/9)

I agree with wearing a mask in public.
I think the majority of the #turn you away. Just I agree with wearing a #mask in public.
I think the majority of the #resistance comes from the #Government mandating it. The
government shouldn’t require it. #Capitalism is giving people the #freedom to make a choice. I agree with businesses that require masks and if you choose not to they have the right to turn you away. Just like the patron has a #choice to abide by the request or not enter...
...the business. #freedomofchoice
Also, I think it would help if people knew the threshold that needs to be reached for the mask recommendations be lifted...

Years ago, my boss taught me something important about choice.
We were recruiting for an open position at the office. The role was urgent and we needed to fill it ASAP. A contract depended on it. So, we hired a recruitment agency and the shortlisted candidates finally got to the interview stage.
The interview was a disappointment. The candidates barely made the cut and we were worried about the looming deadline for filling the position. That day, my boss said something that stuck.

What would your #USGovernment do in a pandemic for #NationalSecurity?

Take out a building?
Take out prison?
Take out a hospital?
Take out a shelter?
Take out a city?
Take out a state?

What would the oligarchs & kleptocrats do to out-#survive US?
On 9/11, scrambled jets were given orders to shoot down full passenger jets as necessary - don't think these discussions aren't taking place in earnest. #StephenMiller & #JaredKushner are in on the talks, so you know they're about #homicide and #genocide. They're real life Nazis.
"Jared Kushner, the president's son-in-law and top adviser, and Stephen Miller, a senior policy adviser, took the lead in writing President Donald Trump's error-riddled address to the nation about the coronavirus outbreak."
