Improving Air Quality Communications - Insights by @ravinarajkohli (3/17)

"They (media) have approached us time and time again, and asked if there are any available #funds and why there isn't any #philanthropic money coming for the environment?"

It was a matter of pride, as President of @BombayChamber, to host #UrbanThinkersCampus Series 2 in partnership with @UNHABITAT on "Financing Recovery for Resilient and Sustainable Cities #TakeAction4Cities #COVID19
Enriching discussion with global thought leaders on #sustainability, urban planning, city administration & finance. Dialogue centred around sustainable development of urban centres & solutions on making cities resilient, particularly in the current context of #COVID19. @UNHABITAT
Globally, there is sufficient funds but it's still difficult to get enough cash for #development. The silver lining? We can evolve #solutions to correct the situation. The best time to act for #sustainable cities was 20 years ago. The next best time? Today! @UNHABITAT

The #GeorgeFloydMurder is the latest in a long history of #racist atrocities visited on Black people & minorities in the US & elsewhere.

If u are in some position of authority, power, privilege & have a public platform you need to speak up and be counted. A v personal #thread
I am brown of Indian origin, but when asked, I always say I don't really know what #racism looks like, I have almost never experienced it, and I am in a position of power and privilege so I don't think its appropriate for me to speak about it. But today, I write about it here ...
I grew up in India, when to the @LSEnews & took a investment banking job at #Lehman. When I flew back to #India, I went to the UK embassy in Delhi to get my work visa. That was my first #racist encounter. He barked at me, said he could turn me down coz "too many of us in the UK"

winning your opponents. People are entitled to change of heart, never waste a good crisis. Cancel the cancel culture. You can always find more ways to destroy your opponents, but restart the wealth creation NOW. (2/8)
Covid19 has brought in unprecedented times for medium-large economies around the world. States like Andhra Pradesh, which is spending lowest #CapitalExpenditure on #development yet with a huge public debt, should draw the references from history of pandemics & recessions. (3/8)

This weeks @androidweekly included a post by @VasiliyZukanov that unfortunately perpetuates a myth in programming; it's ok to use threads.

Before I explain why this is myth that we need to kill, you should read the post: techyourchance.com/concurrency-fr…

#Androidev #Development

1/x
There are a number of problems with the solution in this post, but I'm just going to focus on one; using low-level concurrency APIs (i.e., java.lang.Thread).

With very few exceptions (we'll get to those), this is always a bad thing.

2/x
One simple argument against the use of using threads directly (regardless of language, platform or OS) is that we don't do it for other things.

You're not implementing your own HTTP client, UI framework, or database engine. So why would it be right for concurrency?

This thread is about understanding Lebanon’s #budget in few questions.
Another thread will explain #Citizen_Budget 2020.
@OpenBudgets 👇
What is the #Budget?
Article 3 of the "Public Accounting Law" defines #budget as “a legislative instrument in which national #revenues & #expenditures are estimated for the upcoming year & by which #tax collection & spending are allowed”.
State #budgets have evolved to become a tool of #foresight, #planning and #accountability based on programs and #performance assessments.

20 Tips for 2020 Ag Graduates🔥

With new grads coming into the #ag industry this month I thought it would be helpful to put together a list of tips for the best and brightest to have in mind as they begin their careers.

Most of these can go beyond ag as well!
1. Ask Questions

Don’t let the feeling of looking stupid keep you from asking questions. Many others have the same question and you’ll have more confidence in that answer moving forward.
You don’t know everything. You never will (no matter what your degree says). But you can try. In order to do this, you need to ask questions + listen to those more experienced. You don’t have to agree with others opinions, but sometimes their perspective is what you need.

Fear-exploiting rhetoric around the #coronavirus could provide political space to push through structural anti-migration policies.

What can be done to⬇️short-term effects of #Covid19 on #migrants?

@_jasongagnon of @OECD_Centre discusses in #DevMatters bit.ly/2JA7E1s👇
"Refugee camps are some of the most densely populated places in the world. During #COVID19 residents may not be able to leave, choose where to go, or socially distance themselves."

Learn how the crisis is affecting #refugees & challenges the int'l community face➡️ #DevMatters
Border closures during #COVID19 will show our dependence on mobility of labour.

An abrupt halt to int'l #migration could threaten food supplies & affect food security in developing countries where agricultural sectors are heavily reliant on seasonal labour.

1/ #FinalFantasyVIIRemake, for as excellent as it might turn out, feels like the result of a product that doesn't have an end game plan. Given that we know the first installment of #FF7R barely scratches the surface of the story, but is a "full" AAA experience, concerns me.
2/ At the size of the "chunk" they have chosen for the first installment of #FF7R, how many more #games are required to tell the entirety of the #FF7 story? 8? 10? 12? Are they going to skip insignificant story bits as time goes on? We haven't been given the outline.
3/ From a project management standpoint, it's clear to me that @SquareEnix decided very little beyond this first episode. Because if they did, the required work to complete multiple AAA #FF7 #games, at this rate, is beyond the lifespan of the #PS5 alone.

So @aaron_s_fox jumped the gate on me :) w/ a thread on the #ACL #injury & #AFLW #sport #womanprobs conversation & he did a great job but I'd like my perspective to come in that special 'tone' I may be known for in presentations... My first twitter thread! Expect sarcasm and gifs
1st, I posted my perspective on #injury #women #athlete #development #biomechanics in another tweet, if you missed it, short editorial: bit.ly/3a5Al1x & presentation bit.ly/32hbogF Read those after this thread of fun, I hope the GIFs help you "hear" my tone :)
I’ve seen a bit about #ACL #injury and #menstrualcycles including news stories about organisations ready to study the menstrual cycle and #training - Let me give you some basic information to help you #factcheck before you start #cheering or #praising

🔥🔥🔥 The #1 Recursion (Syntax) Twitter Thread

This thread will demonstrate an easy way to write recursive functions

The recursion will so be compared to a for loop for familiarity

Tail Calls and Performance discussed later, Syntax Only!

gist/theme at end 👇

#javascript
Step 1: Create your iteration variable(s)

In recursion, it can be easier to set a default value. Pass `i` again when calling `loop` on the `return` line

#javascript #code #dev #es6
Step 2: Add a break condition

Like a for loop, add the break before you write your code. This will prevent infinite looping.

Notice how the for loop is a "continue" and the recursion uses a "break". That means the condition must be flipped for recursion

1. £5-8k annual maintenance grants for students
2. 14,000 new undergraduate nursing students
Still @Conservatives
3. 5,000 new nursing degree apprenticeships
4. 7,500 extra nursing associates
5. Increase NHS funding by 29% by 2023
6. No reduction of tuition fees but focus on interest rates to reduce burden on students

At my tribunal the Judge welcomed live tweeting as a means of #openjustice . It was brilliantly done by @wwwritingclub. Someone didn't like something she reported and complained to @Twitter. Her account was suspended for 12 hrs. She wasn't able to live tweet from #FairCopJR
Someone also did not like that the women of Mumsnet were talking openly about the case and the individuals involved. They received ominous warnings about "reporting restrictions" and decided to take all the names out if the posts to be on the safe side mumsnet.com/Talk/womens_ri…
After clarification that there were no reporting restrictions they have promised to replace all the names.

Today, I will try my hand at live tweeting insights from "A #Home of One's Own", a two-day #researchworkshop on socially & economically #marginalised women's experiences of and negotiations with #genderinequalities in #informalurbanhousing in India.
This workshop has been organised by #JadavpurUniversity (School of Women's Studies), #RabindraBharathiUniversity (Centre for Women's Studies) and #Parichiti, a women's organisation. All three are research partners on a #GCRF project funded by @GoldsmithsUoL.
Since Oct 2018, I have collaborated with Dr. Henrike Donner, who is leading it, to develop #researchcollaborations with #educational and #development organisations in India to implement a pilot study on #genderurbanhousing. This workshop marks the end of the first phase.

Hi #development Twitter & #GCDigital. I'm thinking of creating a gentle #Python-based learning session on how applications work for senior executives. I need your help. Yellow sign -
My hypothesis == w/ hands-on practice of some simple programming fundamentals, senior folks can better understand modern applications, how they are developed & work + the value of #opensource. Maybe some agile.
This, in turn, leads to understanding the art of the possible, better questions on work being done, potentially practical support for building broader #programming & #DataScience capacity in their organizations & more open access to #opensource tools.

Glossing @samuelmoyn’s NOT ENOUGH, @BrankoMilan provides a nice table comparing and contrasting the Dependencia/NIEO/G77 vision of development versus the BasicNeeds/Washington Consensus glineq.blogspot.com/2019/07/from-w…
@samuelmoyn @BrankoMilan Contrasting the NIEO versus the Basic Needs approach underscores how the NIEO in some ways represented very apex of the view that the object of #development should be the nation-state (rather than the individual).
@samuelmoyn @BrankoMilan Moreover, since the unit of developmental analysis for the NIEO-philic was the nation-state rather than the individual, it was often rather loose on the question of equality versus sufficiency, as Moyn's careful reading of Mahbub ul Haq shows.

Johann Choux, Head of our Division responsible for equity investments in #startups and venture capital funds, is speaking at #AfroBytes2019. A great opportunity to explain how we work and to list some of the main criteria for our investments: impact and sustainability #AfroBytes
Today we have a portfolio of 12 investments and we are committed to investing in around 3/4 funds and 3/4 startups per year. But our support goes beyong VC, we also support local banks, which can lend to startups thanks to the guarantees we provide, and the ecosystem with @AFD_en
We want to invest more in North Africa and francophone Africa in the future, because as a #development finance institution, it is our mission to catalyse investments, and those 2 areas are very underpenetrated in terms of start-up investments. #Afrobytes
