.#MAGA[ts], this is how you get played.

@EliseStefanik (and @kayleighmcenany, of course) apparently thinks that #leadership is complaining and #lying and shrieking and NOT about proposing solutions.

But then, she's a #Republican. #Governing is NOT what the @GOP does.
.#MAGA[ts], so what's ACTUALLY going on.

@POTUS @JoeBiden spend some time with @FLOTUS because it was her birthday.

No one has a right to begrudge them that. If you have a problem with it, sit and spin. Not everything is about you nor is it always your business.
.#MAGA[ts], the deal with #gasprices, as has been explained, many times, is that we are seeing a seasonal rise in prices that were, for a time, aggravated by the recent #ColonialPipeline hack that resulted in the closing of the pipeline.

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 →…
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..."

Let me do an @eigenrobot-style poll thread about feminism and Levirate marriage.

So, is it possible to appropriate Western culture?
Assuming Western #culture exists, it's basically:
Is the West the default culture of the world?

The level of support, hope and encouragement @animocabrands has been receiving after our Unicorn raise has been amazing, inspiring. We are deeply humbled and grateful of all the support from the #NFT community👇…
We intentionally constructed @animocabrands as both builders like @F1DeltaTime @TheSandboxGame and ecosystem investors in the #NFT ecosystem because we firmly believe in the Web 3.0 network effect as mutually beneficial it is why we invested in over 50 #NFT projects (++future)
For digital property rights to truly function it must stay open and composable in much the same way #opensource has been to code. #NFTs represent in an immutable fashion our ideas, imagination, stories and our culture. I discuss some of that here:

#NoEstimates, un mouvement hétérogène et controversé lancé en 2012 sur Twitter 🔮

Le sujet vu par @ddreptate dans un meetup organisé par @ByondSM 🧶 Image
—On est mauvais à estimer (+ c’est gros — on est précis)
—Processus fastidieux
—Détourne de la création de valeur (focus coût vs. valeur)
—Celle-ci vient de l’implication des personnes et de la capacité à apprendre rapidement dans un monde VUCA (rien de mécanique ou identique) Image
BIAIS COGNITIFS, une des raisons principales pour mal estimer

—Biais d’ancrage: on va tjrs rester figés sur une 1ere info, on sera influencés par ça
—Biais de confirmation: on donne + d’importance aux infos qui vont venir confirmer nos croyances

One of the reasons of Covid fatigue for doctors in India is "multiple consultations".

So far in entire year I have not come across EVEN ONE patient who consulted ONLY ONE doctor.
Even asymptomatic people or people with mildest of symptoms contact multiple doctors.

This is how we are.

Therefore I am totally against working for telephonic helplines. If they really audit their calls..
they will realise that most callers are calling up helpline "just to confirm" what 10 other doctors + actual treating doctor has already told them.

I’ve noticed #burnout is coming up as a topic more in newsrooms. If we don’t solve this as an industry, we will continue to lose incredible people we can’t afford to lose. However, my view has changed on solutions...
I’m a big advocate of self-care, but this @HarvardBiz article by @JenLeighMoss changes some of my thinking. “…burnout is more than just an employee problem; it’s an organizational problem that requires an organizational solution.”
The research showed six reasons for burnout #culture:
1. Unsustainable workload
2. Perceived lack of control
3. Insufficient rewards for effort
4. Lack of a supportive community
5. Lack of fairness
6. Mismatched values and skills.

The @eigenrobot threadwar about a Chinese girl in Germany saying she's German and Americans who are 1/32 German are not is dumb.

Almost everyone is making comments that make sense to them but they have different ideas of "German."
1. The OP

If you're Chinese and grew up in Germany then when you encounter other Chinese they're consistently going to react with "wow, you're really European!"

So of course, relative to the baseline of an ethnic Han growing up in Shanghai, she thinks "I'm German."
2. The angry respondent

"Magic dirt isn't real" was his shorthand.

If you've read any Evola you know his theory is that race is not mere genetics and it is not simply culture either but some ineluctable property that persists beyond the sterile scientific analysis of the two.

#concours #prepahec #animal #culture
Sujet Culture Générale Prépa HEC 2021 : "La violence et l'animal"
- Probabilités indicatives : ECRICOME 5%, HEC 60%, ESSEC 75%
- L’an dernier, la civilisation était l’adjuvante du désir. Cette année, l’animal sera probablement lui aussi
subordonné à un concept aussi vaste que la civilisation, la violence par exemple.
- 2 astuces majeures :
*Astuce1 : face à un concept que vous ne savez pas aborder philosophiquement, demandez-vous bêtement quels mots proches de la vie courante vous pouvez lui rapprocher. Là ça
donne : force, puissance, souffrance, destruction, etc
*Astuce2 : sur un sujet avec un « et », 75% des copies traiteront l’un puis l’autre dans leur dissertation. Même si vous aurez probablement l’impression de limiter grandement le sujet, forcez-vous à ne traiter que le rapport

#concours #prepahec #culture #hggmc
Cette série de tweets a pour vocation d'insister avec lourdeur sur des détails débiles en apparence mais qui font la différence au concours.
- Aujourd'hui, CG/HGGMC
-Au dessus de chaque grande partie, l'annonce de partie est
indispensable. Elle doit consister en trois phrases affirmatives, simples, reliées logiquement entre elles et décrivant vos A)B)C). Tacitement, vous dites à votre correcteur : "regarde, je te donne mon plan" et il vous répond "merci".

- Le début de la conclusion reprend la PBL
et y répond explicitement, cad en reprenant les termes de la PBL. D'où l'intérêt majeur d'avoir une vraie PBL qui pose une vraie question et une dissertation qui y répond à chaque partie.

- La 1ère question à se poser n'est pas"qu'est-ce que je peux recaser pour ce sujet précis"

Sujet Culture Générale Prépa HEC 2021 : "Sauter du coq à l'âne"
- Probabilités indicatives : ECRICOME/ESSEC/HEC 0.2%
- Cette expression trouve ses origines en Ancien Français dans le mot "asne" qui signifiait "cane". Or il semblerait que les
coqs, dans des élans de lubricité, décidaient de "sauter" de la poule à la cane, bravant par là toutes les lois de la Nature. Puis, progressivement, l'expression est passée dans le langage et l'asne est devenue âne.
- Ce sujet, si l'on décide de le prendre au sérieux, a le mérite
de ne pas avoir de voie tracée. Proposons-en donc une.
- Tout d'abord, cette expression traduit l'extrême diversité et variété du genre animal : quand je suis dans l'Animalité (pendant de l'Humanité), j'ai le choix. Ainsi, pour reprendre les analyses de Deleuze, j'ai l'occasion

A few days back I held a @joinClubhouse conversation with an interesting gathering of #mathematics teachers and other #educators, and I did talk about #ethnomathematics.
The conversation generated a heated debate among them.
A thread #Culture #Maths #KnowledgeProduction
In the discussion, I also mentioned African Humanism as new enlightenment based on the endogenous & indigenous techniques and methods to generate knowledge in the #GlobalSouth.
Someone was so upset and felt attacked by this.
Others by my expression #decolonize the #decolonization
My point was and still remains not necessarily to antagonize the Western way of knowledge production but put aside and to mainstream our traditional techniques that fallen in disuse and take into formal education as another way of producing knowledge.

Sujet : Comprendre l'animal
- Probabilités indicatives : Ecricome 35%, ESSEC 60%, HEC 20%
- Au risque de me répéter, le plus important ici est d’interroger « comprendre » : faites comme si ce mot n’avait aucune définition fixe et que sa...
puissance d’évocation vous émerveille tout du long de votre dissertation.
- Plus concrètement, comprendre c’est avant tout réussir à conceptualiser une chose, à la saisir par l’intellect. Etymologiquement, c’est « prendre avec » (cum-prendere en latin) dans le double sens d’avec
: prendre à l’aide de sa conscience (avec sa conscience) et prendre avec soi l’animal.
- Mais, immédiatement apparait un problème : quand je comprends quelque chose, je l’encercle, je le limite. On peut penser à l’opposition entre la définition par compréhension (comme quand je

No matter how educated you are, your nativity always shines through. You will remain a slave to culture & tradition unless you choose otherwise. Image
You were brought up in a certain way. You inherited one religion or the other. Certain norms and behaviours were ingrained from childhood.
However, one day, you must decide how you want to live your life. You've got to take a critical look at all you believe and decide what serves you well and what is inimical to your progress, happiness and relationships.
