There are many #digital platforms that can help with #COVID19 case mgmt and contact tracing, but which one is right for your needs? Supported by @gatesfoundation, we assessed 9 key platforms to support decision-making for MoHs and donor agencies: bit.ly/covid19digital…
The 9 key platforms we looked at were: CommCare, Community Health Toolkit, DHIS2 Tracker, Go.Data, @getODK, @opensrp, @joinrapidpro, @SORMAS_open, and @WelTel. #COVID19 #pandemic #epitwitter #ContactTracing
We provide an overview of the 9 platforms and their relevant #COVID19 use cases. We also compare each platform on quality attributes (e.g. usability, scalability) so you can see what platforms has which features, and at what capacity!

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.
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: tacticaltech.org/#/news/persona…

My first 2 months at @EU_ScienceHub have been fascinating. I’ve begun to explore a rich tradition of scientific excellence spanning nearly 60 years.

Here are some of the things I have discovered so far ⬇️

With #Covid19 as the ultimate catalyst, the push is on to implement the financialization of nature.

The Natural Capital Coalition is made up of approx. 300 orgs/corps while working w/ thousands. Partners include #CocaCola, #Shell, #Walmart.

Those with money will own #nature.
Those w/ $ will own #nature.

The very corporations that have brought us to the precipice of #ecological #collapse - will now be appointed as the new stewards of nature. This has been dubbed (#XR Business - Elkington/Volans) as the new biosphere economy.

#NewDealForNature
Let's take a look at how #Covid19 has been successfully leveraged (both fear & distraction) in order to aid the largest transformation of the global economic system in modern history. Assigning monetary value to nature ("natural capital") will replace #GDP.

India and Marketing shares a complex bonding.

In a nation that keeps the heart embedded in head and religion inscribed in heart, marketing isn't easy.

#marketing #india #religion
A vermillion here, talisman there, pieces of threads everywhere- it's tough to imagine marketing could fail when and where.

This is a country where religion gets affixed to anything by scattering almighty over everything.

#digitalmarketing #india #marketing
Just look around you and observe the name of the Shops, Food Joints, Kiosks, Salon, Tea Stall, Internet Cafe, name of the Locality, private taxis et al.

The question is, does religion based naming grants some form of customer hegemony?

Performance status in cancer isn’t broken, but is it time for an upgrade? Check out our commentary with @ElisabethEdvar2 Guro Stene and Lee Jones in @ASCO_pubs on different tools to assess PS ascopubs.org/doi/full/10.12… THREAD
1948: Karnofsky et al used 3 criteria to evaluate nitrogen mustard efficacy: objective (decrease in lesion size), subjective (patient reported symptoms), and PS (i.e., patients’ ability to participate in activities of daily life) /2
Evaluation of PS was standardized using a physician rated scale, now known as Karnofsky Performance Status (KPS), ranging from 0 (dead) to 100 (well-functioning) with 10-point increments /3

La economía #digital se ha vuelto muy relevante en el mundo. Ayer en la conferencia vespertina de créditos expuse las razones por las que es importante gravar adecuadamente a este sector y qué mecanismo implementamos en el @GobiernoMX para hacerlo.
Gravar la economía #digital es importante por dos razones: 1) Este sector ha crecido rápidamente en años recientes (en 2018 representó el 5% del PIB en México). 2) Por cuestiones de #justicia y #equidad, pues concentra algunas de las empresas de mayor valor en el mundo.
Sin embargo, hasta hace poco, los códigos tributarios en #México y en el mundo no estaban diseñados para gravar bienes intangibles como los de la economía #digital. Por este motivo, en @Hacienda_Mexico creamos un mecanismo claro, justo y transparente para realizar esta tarea.

1. #digital #energy governance challenge number 2 - distributional effects and #inequalities. An enormously complex area that's hard to summarize in a tweet - really a whole PhD in its own right. (If you're doing this please say hello!) Full report - bit.ly/2A0KuQm.
2. Key point: digitalisation holds the potential to change the nature, spread and scale of existing energy distributional challenges, as well as introducing new ones. We must address this to facilitate a #JustTransition to #netzero.
3. Note: there is much more to be explored around this challenge that goes beyond my resources/knowledge. I'm looking for UK-based experts to participate in my second phase of research - if interested please contact me or sign up via the link in the report.

1. My new research discussion paper (bit.ly/2A0KuQm) 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?

Wow! That Grassroots Discussion was so full of real practical start-using-it-now #2020election organizing. Check out the recap below.
Thank you @kn_avery! You are brilliant! And thanks for your work with PFA and on the frontlines with Organizing Together #WOT2020 @WIOrgTogether
We started with a clip from the super helpful Turnout 2020 @BrennanCenter webinar. We listened to @evettewashere give a great rundown of the @knightfdn study of America's non-voters.
youtube.com/watch?v=DG70_I…
Non-voters:
- 38% do not believe their vote matters.
- Are less infromed, overwhelmed or turned off by negative news.
- Do not know the voting process.
- Less trusting of voting system.

What part of the @knightfdn study on non-voters stood out to you?

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
