Número 2⃣ ¿Abrumado por agendas complejas, listas de correo interminables, llamadas, reuniones, grupos de WhatsApp...?, la gestión eficaz del #tiempo es uno de los mayores desafíos. Aquí una lectura de interés: hbr.org/2018/07/how-ce…
Cómo asignar el tiempo o dónde estar presente es crucial. No solo para ser más eficaz, también para el propio funcionamiento de la organización sanitaria. El horario de un directivo es una manifestación de cómo lideras y es una forma de enviar poderosos mensajes a la institución.
Pasar tiempo con los profesionales permite brindar orientación, generar confianza y recopilar información para tomar buenas decisiones. Pero sin generar presiones, facilitando iniciativas y fomentando la autogestión.

WE ARE LIVING IN THE AGE OF POLYCRISIS - The 6 Effects 🧵

- @adam_tooze in his book, Shutdown, talks abt Polycrisis. 6 effects accentuates it into a Megacrisis:

1) Backflow
2) Convergence
3) Layering
4) Linkage
5) Magnifier
6) Induction

#crisis #energy #food #inflation
@adam_tooze A) Interaction with the West, in the form of an economic relation, had brought a backflow effect where western democratic ideals threaten Russia's own way of governance.
B) Political problems have become "biopolitical, geopolitical and geoeconomic" owing to the layering effect. The ideological has collided with the pragmatic (Converging effect).

⚠️⚠️We need your attention to one of the child campaigns organized by @87films!

As many families live together in peace with their families and friends today, families in Afghanistan are praying day and night not to lose their children due to malnutrition. (1/3) Image
The number of malnourished children is rapidly increasing, and children are the primary victims of this unprecedented crisis.

Since discovering I’m #ActuallyAutistic I’ve realised energy, empathy and emotion aren’t infinite.
If I keep exceeding my limits I’ll meltdown, shutdown, or #burnout.
Self-awareness, boundaries and regulation are vitally important to wellbeing, and survival.

One of the challenges is recognising when my reserves are running low.
This often only becomes apparent when some tiny thing, like temporarily misplacing my phone, causes great distress.
It’s an early warning sign, an indicator that some kind of urgent action is necessary.

For those of us who have parenting or caring responsibilities taking time out to prioritise our own needs is often very difficult.
This applies to exacting employment situations too.
Even if the option of self care exists, we may deny ourselves if we don’t feel we deserve it.

"The amount of corn it takes to fill an #SUV with #ethanol could feed a person for a year, and the #US and #Europe could immediately replace the lost grain exports from #Ukraine’s breadbasket by cutting their #biofuel production in half."
"In fact, a bunch of studies have confirmed that biofuel mandates were a leading driver of the 2008 food crisis, driving up prices by driving up demand for grain and vegetable oil."

Ukraine faces mass starvation: Kiev authorities deliberately disrupt the sowing campaign

1. Relating to the approval/start of emergency #COVID19 vaccine dose - 4th #dose and vaccinating lower age groups of children:

Is there any #emergency now?

Global #Deaths are now all-time low since the start of mass #vaccination. #Cases are also not rising. (plots attached) ImageImage
2. For #India #COVID19 Deaths and Cases are now all-time low since beginning of #pandemic (plot)! Hence not at all an #emergency; instead, heading towards normalcy after two years.

There is indeed not an emergency for US too (plot).

Then why any emergency approval/#rollout? ImageImageImage
3. Israel began vaccinating 5–11 years old in Nov, 2021 and initiated the fourth #dose during Jan, 2022. Israel in fact is leading/ guiding the vaccine rollout strategy.

For #Israel, the recent peak not only in Cases but also for Deaths reached an all-time high (plot). Image

¿Qué fue la crisis de los 60?
En los años 1960 se asiste a los momentos de mayor conflicto político entre los bloques formados por Estados Unidos y la Unión Soviética, en la llamada Guerra Fría.
Fue una década realmente importante en la historia donde podemos encontrar:
1. Guerra de Vietnam
2. Asesinato de John F. Kennedy
3. Movimiento por los derechos civiles en los Estados Unidos de los ciudadanos negros
4. Revolución Cultural china
5. La llegada a la Luna.

27. RADIXers, for the last time this is @akgungor_c. So, when a disaster happens, society looks for #leadership and an efficient #response. While issues related to #crisismanagement & response usually seem to be the primary reason for public outrage in the first moments,
28...it doesn’t take long for a louder contestation to emerge, this one being about causes and responsibilities: How it happened; why it happened;
what could have been done in order to prevent it, and, if it wasn’t prevented, then who is responsible?
29. Clearly, #catastrophe is a legitimacy test for the political elite, as it is for the public administration. Leaders certainly prefer avoiding such debates about their presumed irresponsibility, indifference, or lethargy but for many others, starting with victims & journalists

#Russia supplies us with grain and corn. All the logistics go through the Black Sea. And the African world is frozen in horror at what is happening. Terrified of what the #US and the #EU are doing.

You can't buy Africans with tales of democracy. They are only your tales for domestic consumption. Most of the African elite were formed in the Soviet Union - doctors, engineers, pilots, teachers, scientists.

The #Truth is:
The #Empire (#NATO) cannot create a #No-#Fly zone over #Ukraine, because the #Russians already did that in what is called:
The #Russian #Strategy of #A2AD:
#Anti-#Access/#Area-#Denial.
What is Anti-Access/Area-Denial (#A2AD)❓
A2AD denies an adversary’s freedom of movement.
AA –inhibition of enemy military movement into an area of operations.
AD – denial of enemy freedom of action in areas.

#Ukraineinvasion has shaken the world, but #US posture towards #Serbia remains the same: free pass to #Belgrade to skirt obligations to #EU & to #Ukraine. 🧵
@USEmbassySerbia praises @avucic’s “support for territorial integrity of #Ukraine” when this is a self-serving stance of #Belgrade due to (false) parallel to #Kosovo. #China also makes a self-serving ‘territorial integrity’ argument – and US, correctly, does not praise #Beijing.
In both cases, support for territorial integrity is empty, unless accompanied by unambiguous condemnation of @KremlinRussia_E’s unprovoked, unjustifiable invasion. @avucic merely called it a “mistake,” as if #Putin might have chosen better means to bring down the Ukrainian govt.

Today is 100 days since I was first admitted to hospital after taking a mixed overdose. I won't elaborate further.
Since then I have had 3 admissions; 2 to general wards and 1 to a #mentalhealth unit. I spent time as an informal patient and also detained under Section 3 1/21
I was under #Crisis services until last week...
Today is also the first night in 99 that I am spending alone, so to occupy myself and acknowledge the 'milestone', I thought I would reflect on 10 things that I have learnt in that time...
This comes with trigger warnings 2/21
As I will be speaking about #SelfHarm and #Suicide. I also apologise in advance for any poor grammer - I am typing this out on my phone, unable to use a key board.

"Americans increased the Defence Budget to the tune of USD 200 Billion per year between 1980 and 1987"
#MacNamara.
One must learn Crisis Management from Military leaders and Geostrategic Affairs Experts.
Leadership, management and entrepreneurship can all benefit from wargaming and decision-making did on the battlefield.
An interdisciplinary approach to problem-solving helps a lot!
#MacNamara is right about three things when he sums up a crisis situation
1. Misinformation exacerbates a crisis
2. Emotionalism can ruin strategic decision-making
3. First information received in the event of a crisis is always wrong leading to an error of judgement

A few nights ago I struggled to sleep. Insomnia is definitely common among health care workers as we struggle to process the past 2 years of #COVID19.

Very little sleep, so I got up early yesterday morning to write and send @PremierScottMoe a letter.

#YourHCWsAreNotOK

🧵
Dear Premier,

This HCW writes you this am as we are coming down off of #WAVE4 of COVID-19, the deadliest, the most excruciating 1 for SK yet.

I am beaten down, barely functioning & exhausted in every way.

Yet somehow I am still fighting, so I write you this letter today.

I live in Prince Albert & I have worked here as a Public Health Nurse for 16 yrs.

The former PAPHR, that’s your home health region & I bring this up because I care what happens to the people you represent. Those people are my real life clients in health care.

So just to recap: 8 republicans just elected who attended the 1/6 insurrection; 28 lawmakers with ties to or membership in the Oath Keepers (an illegal militia); 27 million people support the use of violent force to restore Trump to power. Do I have that right? #crisis
