Western but more importantly #African #conservation biologists and #communities have clearly evidenced the well managed hunting - inc trophy hunting - is a valid utilitarian conservation tool that is need to protect land from converting to agriculture or development /1
This is because the real and present danger for large and charismatic wildlife in #Africa is habitat loss and quality - including human-wildlife conflict - where #people are effected or killed by such #wildlife and retaliation on wildlife occurs - e.g. /2
While stories of #human hardship in living with #wildlife - and the same dynamics of wanting to develop and use land never reaches UK news - what does is dangerous mis-information from a range of sources but mainly western and #celebrity backed #NGOs /3 conbio.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.111…

The #G7 this weekend renounced its role as #globalhealth leader, @kentbuse and I argue in @bmj_latest: blogs.bmj.com/bmj/2021/06/13…

A thread on what next for global health & #healthsecurity.
Speaking at #G20 Rome #GlobalHealthSummit in May, German Chancellor #Merkel had raised the question, “if not us, who?” to end the global #Covid19 #pandemic.

At #G7UK this past weekend, #G7 responded with "Not us," committing to donate 870mn #vaccine doses when the need is 11bn.
Instead of engaging with recommendations of @TheIndPanel to strengthen #pandemic preparedness & the #globalhealth system (theindependentpanel.org/mainreport/), strongly backed by @antonioguterres (), #G7 noted it would "explore" different proposals.

Ayyy all, digging through my emails - this month's @humble bundle unlocked, and I've a few extra keys.

Would any of you fine folks that've been following along for this wild ride like a #SteamKey for #CivilizationVI Platinum Edition?

No strings, other than you have to enjoy it!
*Apparently I need to clarify/hit bot triggers:

Keys will only go-to longtime followers of mine, that are actual, real people. That I've interacted with. Clear? 🤣✌️♥️🏴‍☠️
[#Thread]

Game's still up for grabs for [#organic] followers & friends only; sorry, Silicon-based crowd, key-sellers, [...]!

Times are hard for everyone right now [We're on DAY SIX of our illegal water cut]; but they're especially hard for certain #communities.

Excerpts from "'America’s Post-Pandemic Geography' - Covid-19 is transforming all types of communities, from big cities to suburbs to rural areas" - from the Summer 2021 Issue of @CityJournal - by @Richard_Florida & @joelkotkin. A #Thread.

The article → city-journal.org/americas-post-…
1. "The #Pandemic will pass...But in geographic terms, today’s Covid-precipitated crises may well prove to be the most transformative event that #America has experienced since the great migration to the suburbs after World War II."
2. "....centrifugal forces pull some people out of #Cities: families seek more #Affordable space, backyards, and access to better schools. With the wider scope of choice that #RemoteWork affords, some are casting their nets wider and moving farther afield..."

Here's why more and more #associations and membership organisations launch private #digital #communities, and why yours should too:

[thread] 👥🔗🌎🔗👥
📅Year-round cohesion: your flagship events and gala dinners matter, but will no longer be enough to guarantee loyalty and avoid member churn. We live in an on-demand, continuous world now, disconnecting for large parts of the year is no longer sustainable.
🔐Security & #privacy : hosting your proprietary information on 'free' servers managed by social media companies is leading a lamb to slaughter. Instead, they can and should be hosted within your private platform environment where YOU own the data

"Harvesting the oceans under the Blue Economy": "The #OECD suggests that the #ocean economy is likely to outpace the global economy in the next 15 years."

#GreatReset #NewDealForNature #DeepSeaMining
Under guise of protecting #biodiversity:

"Framed as perhaps the last untapped, under-explored & under-exploited region in the world, the Pacific #Ocean is set to be a contested space for resources."

#WorldEconomicForum #SDGs
"The #BlueEconomy heralds a new race to carve up the Pacific, turning the Pacific Ocean, from surface to seafloor, into a crowded/contested space. Pacific state leaders are courted w/ economic gains that are a fraction of the value of the ocean resources that will be #extracted."

Step 2. Invite your first 100 members to utilise connected individuals and thought-leaders to act as your ambassadors.

(Part 2)
Step 3. Create a series of activities to occur each day (repeat consistently) - Think Gamification.

Can't agree more about most #DAO projects are like countries with parliaments but without the relevant executive #government @verbine Would love to incorporate an executive structure to Digital Native Organizations #DNO on #Autonomy Network. Thread here 👇👇👇
For the success of Community owned organizations and Digital companies there is a need for a strong executive team while I also feel a need for a strong governance council. #token #governance models #cryptonetworks
To solve some of the short comings of #DAO models we are proposing a model of Digital Native Organizations(DNO) with

1. Digital Ownership
2. Governance with decentralization as a range rather than a state
3. Token incentives for all stakeholders

The #deficit #myth #deficitmyth by @StephanieKelton #MMT modern monetary theory
Myth N. 1: The #state should budget like a #household
#RealityCheck : unlike a household, a #SovereignNation, which owns its national #centralbank, issues the #currency it spends
Myth N. 2: #deficit is evidence of #overspending
#RealityCheck: look to #inflation for evidence of over spending
The purpose of #taxes is not to pay for #government expenditures but to help rebalancing the #wealth distribution #MMT

1/ Next up in #ReflectionThreads : Throwing some light on ‘Developer Relations’ (DevRel) as a function.

I'll summarize some experiences from
- My work at a product MNC
- My research + prep work for product startup/s interviews

Read below 👇🏻

#DeveloperRelations #Thread
2/ DevRel is useful for any company which has a tech product and is looking for increasing their developer base. Needless to say, the framework mentioned below would be applicable (at a high level) for various other (non-tech) products as well.
3/ Why DevRel? 🤔
- Engage with a unique audience : Developers
- Reach devs@scale (1:few:many)
- Help devs make *meaningful* solutions
- Receive critical product feedback

USE THIS #Thread #Paradox of #AntiracistEdLeadership in #Edsystems- thoughts I've been really mulling abt in the past while. Have to admit, I've been sitting on this for a couple weeks. Grateful to those who helped me sift through my thinking <3 Here's to #courageousconversations
True #AntiRacist Leadership can only happen when you are anchored in #communities and you do the work #buildrelationships #seekadvice #love & #beLoved by those who give you #permission & #legitimacy to continue the struggle in boardrooms.
When I became a senior leader in Edu. I was advised that - You cannot be on the streets & in the boardrooms. "its time to choose. Its a different struggle." I didnt choose bc WE deserve to be in the boardroom but THAT choice comes at a #price
