#PSA: If you are denied equal access (facilities, goods, services, experience) to a public business - treated differently than others -- due to not wearing a mask b/c of a medical exemption, report it to the ADA and WA OAG - it's illegal.

Had the pleasure of discussing with leading #tech activists on the use of #BigData in #elections in #Africa & the implications for #democracy. With elections in #Guinea #CôtedIvoire #Niger #Burkina #Ghana, the issue is high on the agenda! Thx @Info_Activism! Key resources below. Image
Think #BigData is not being harnessed for political influence in #WestAfrica? Read @simonallison's article on the use of data in the 2019 presidential #election in #Senegal and think again!…
For a deep (and chilling) dive into data-driven campaigning, what it means, how it works, the companies behind it and the services they offer (psychometric profiling, robotcalls, geotracking, etc.), read @Info_Activism's excellent report:…

Puerto Rico should be whatever it wants. Pass it on
Since @AndrewYang is the #Data #Math guy?

Let's talk numbers on Puerto Rico Statehood:
In 2012 the headline was "Puerto Ricans favor statehood for first time"

Kinda. The statehood party broke the question up into two parts:

1. Should Puerto Rico continue its current territorial status?

2. HAHA forget question #1. Which non-territorial option do you prefer?

Let’s talk #safetyculture


It’s a framework for a harm reduction towards all: patients & families as well as all staff

growth mindset
instead of
fixed mindset

to have needed uncomfortable conversations

#MedTwitter #AcademicTwitter #MedEd #NurseTwitter
This framework has been applied to reducing harm, mostly through medication error (though intended to achieve population health)

Then was expanded to patient experience

Also, cost of care

More recently we have added clinician wellbeing

=quadruple aim…
What has not been clearly stated in any of these #safety framework is disparities, structural inequity, or racism

The acute care side of the hospital - money maker - thinks of this as type of safety & #quality

but not #populationhealth

#Implicitbias elicits 🙄😡😴 response

@pingali @scribbledata Framing: Formulating a good problem is the most important step. What is 'good' depends on the context. Mature companies require optimal solutions.

2/ #opinion I am trained as a journalist, worked as one, and now teach young people who will become journalists in the future. I now start my semesters with a question: What would have to offer the world that any blogger or human with a cell phone would not?
3/ It's a reasonable question. Anyone can write something and publish it at the tap of a button. A substantial percentage of people can even shoot and edit video and do a pretty good job at that. So what value does a trained journalist add?

1. My new research discussion paper ( outlines six key #governance challenges emerging from #energy #digitalization - first up is #datagovernance! @exeterepg
2. #datagovernance is the subject of a lot of current #policy work - issue awareness is high and broad support is reported for sector initiatives by e.g. @beisgovuk @EnergySysCat @ofgem @cse_bristol @SustainFirst. Report findings raise a few areas for further discussion, e.g.:
3. Where do principles-based approaches work well and where might new policy need enforcement/'teeth'?
Where are 'hard' barriers to data openness written into existing codes/licenses and how can we fix this? What is the optimal granularity for a national asset register?

Dear Nigerian State Governors,

Present Reality:
You're presently challenged in revenue generation. Dwindling funds from federation account, PAYE still holds large chunk in taxes, other sources mainly from mSMEs with few medium/large businesses, no digital source of revenue
Present Situation:
Your govt as an institution is extremely inefficient, ineffective and too expensive. It is also irrelevant to the realities of a modern economy.

What Needs to be Addressed:
1. Trim the workforce
2. Digitalize government & public service
3. Embrace #OpenData
Broadband Opportunity:
Broadband is just bandwidth data transmission which transports multiple signals and traffic types through any network medium. Understand broadband to be just a "pipe" for now.

By government being digital means they are enabling businesses & citizens..

Here's the first draft chapter of 📊The First One: Thriving as the 1st #data hire.

You view it in this link but I'll be posting para's in this thread for your thoughts/comments and experiences!

**Upskilling without seniors around**
A somewhat big disadvantage of being the first data hire is that you are likely to be the only “data person” for quite a while. Even when you aren’t alone, you will likely be the most senior hire for some time.
This means you won’t be able to learn from peers or a more experienced technical lead or manager. You might be concerned you’ll be doing the same old things that you already know.

The problem with #data and being #datadriven and the supposed #bigdata revolution is partially about skills (people lack them) but also about who gets to "own" data inside a company --- >
What's generally happening at places out in the ether:

Step 1: Data is important and should be a competitive advantage for companies.

Step 2: Increasingly, companies have realized that.
Step 3: They’ve tried to “pivot” their business models and shift their hiring processes to be in line with this.

Step 4: Some are seeing results, but most are just gathering data and seemingly unsure what to do with it.

Help! I'm looking for a technical term.

It's a term that describes what {actions,set of conditions,systems states} are necessary for the required data to be collected.

I'm drawing a blank⋯

Y'all are being super helpful, in that this discussion is converging. I really appreciate you taking the time to respond!
Okay, so here's an inspiration from object-oriented programming...

Test Point : Instance
❓ : Class

Ah, that's why I'm not feeling "test point"!

This was indeed a fantastic and very insightful panel! Perhaps a summary of the main points can be useful. Thus, a long thread. 1/n
All panelists agree: Market power in #digital markets is worrisome. Fiona and Tommaso think that #mergers can worsen this situation and directly harm consumers by killing actual or potential competition, reducing #innovation (either killing the innovation of the target or .. 2/n
…the innovation of the acquiring incumbents) and quality (including #privacy). Mergers can also cause indirect harm (Tommaso) by increasing prices in the other side(s) of the market (e.g. #advertising). 3/n

متصفح مصمم للجينوم
والذي تم تطويره من قبل العلماء والباحثين في معهد
Wellcome Sanger institute
يتم من خلال هذا المتصفح قراءة وتصور سلسلة DNA 🧬 للبكتيريا. Image
سـ أذكر هنا في سلسلة هذه التغريدات عن:
١-مقدمة تعريفية عن الجينومات البكتيرية
(bacterial genome)
٢-أهمية متصفح الجينوم( genome browser )
٣- كيف يساهم هذا المتصفح Artemis في دراسة مسببات الامراض البكترية
#biology #Bioinformatics #gene #Bacteriology
تمتلك الجينومات البكتيرية مجموعة من الأحجام ويمكن أحتوائها على واحد أو أكثر من الكروموسومات ويمكن ان تكون هذه الكروموسومات دائرية أو خطية (circular or linear).وبغض النظر عن شكلها تظهر الجينومات البكتيرية ارتباطاً كبيراً بين حجم الجينوم وعدد الجينات الموجودة في الجينوم. Image

Reflecting on changes in instruction post-COVID and would like to do a round-up of tech that worked well and tech that fell flat. #AcademicTwitter #highered
@gradescope I will never not use this platform again. I picked an awesome term to onboard myself, TA team & students. Testing options were great, & their tech support was phenomenal. I had heard good things from colleagues, & they were spot on. Get your campus to get a license.
@polleverywhere Long-time proponent of polling for #inclusion, we continued to use this tool remotely. It gave both the students & myself a sense of normalcy when we all went remote — a simple familiar poll-repoll post-Covid felt like victory. Asynch option clunky but doable.

”Välillä johtaja on kuin panttivankineuvottelija ja välillä taas kuin diplomaatti. Välillä sanottava juuri se, mitä toinen ei missään nimessä halua kuulla ja välillä taas käytettävä tuhottomasti aikaa kuuntelemiseen ja myötätuntoon.”
