#PaidPidis are trolling @nsitharaman for her statement on #OlaUber being responsible for #autosectorslowdown

That was just 1 reason she gave, not the only one

As mother is 2 #Millennials, I agree with her - consumer tastes are changing

#SayItLikeNirmalaTai
#BoycottMillennials
Today #Millennials prefer to take an AC #OlaUber instead of-

- buying car

- paying EMIs

- legalities- insurances, papers, etc

- buying parking space (which in Mumbai is costlier than price of car)

- finding parking space in busy streets or paying steep parking charges
Many #Millennials aren’t in love with the idea of #buyingHouse either

Today, the concept of #LifelongJob has gone out of the window & people are on the #move in the #job market

Hence #renting & changing homes make more sense than investing in a house, a very #illiquid asset

1/: @bharatpeindia is bringing millions of small merchants on to the #digital payments ecosystem for the first time. Their goal: to become the largest enabler of free offline #payments and provide a one-stop platform for all #financial commerce solutions.
2/: Through a unique 30 second on-boarding process, @bharatpeindia has already reached a 1.7 Mn user base. 4 Mn+ #merchants will be using the platform by FY 2020.
3/: There are 50 Mn merchants in India, a vast majority of whom are underserved by #banks and #NBFCs. The credit gap in the market is ~$400b. This is the opportunity the company is going after.

Food for thought

Interviewed few ppl for jobs in tier 2/3 cities

They said they would rather work in Bangalore/Mumbai/Hyderabad than stay back in their villages

They said- they wanted to work with the best

Then ppl blame politicians for not providing jobs to Tier 2/3 cities
Then majority of the ppl from Bangalore always tell

Ultimately We want to work in Bay Area or May be HK, SG, AUS, UK, EU, NZ, Dubai etc

Reasons

Commute : I don’t want spend my life in traffic jams

Employers: who don’t let us take vacations

Infrastructure: bad roads

More 💰
Ppl working in central London

What would be nice is

- Working from home in a country side
- More time with family
- More time with nature
- I want to grow vegetables whilst I work for an investment bank

Back to country side

In 5 tweets, The gist of Right to Left: The digital leader’s guide to Lean and Agile
agendashift.com/right-to-left
@Right2LeftGuide #agendashift #lean #agile #digital #leadership
@Right2LeftGuide 1/5. Success in digital means integrating delivery, development, and strategy – continuously identifying and addressing impediments to flow, alignment, and anticipation. This is clearly a learning process; a successful digital organisation is a learning organisation
@Right2LeftGuide 2/5. In Lean-Agile we celebrate #Lean & #Agile both separately and together. To Lean's "strategic pursuit of flow" (after Modig & Åhlström), we bring from Agile a safe default assumption, that in knowledge work, most failures of flow are rooted in failures of collaboration

(1/7) What roadmap should #fintech take in the future? Huang Qifan, academic advisor of CF40 and Vice-Chairman of CCIEE shared his insights on P2P and Internet finance on CF40 Yichun Forum. mp.weixin.qq.com/s/WZ2YQxwUoQEG…
(2/7) Huang said “In recent years, under the cover of internet finance, #P2P has successfully attracted savings from netizens with de facto high-interest loans. Repay the debt with new lending through cash pooling has resulted in a host of Ponzi schemes under the internet system.
(3/7) Either #TechFin or #FinTech doesn't and won’t overthrow fundamental principles of traditional finance and financial security. In this regard, we should not only exert the #digital platform to the utmost, but also stick to principles and ideology of modern finance.

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.

terceiro banco europeu, o @DeutscheBank começa a demitir 18.000 funcionários [20% do total], faz contas pra economizar €17 BILHÕES até 2022 e investirá [os mesmos?] €17 BILHÕES em #TICs e #transformação #digital até 2022: bit.ly/2YGQc1d. o digital tá atrasado, e muito.
em muitos casos, e especialmente em organizações muito grandes e [por suposição] muito estáveis e seguras, as lideranças DEMORAM demais a REAGIR ao novo contexto competitivo e AINDA MAIS a antecipar o FUTURO. esse parece ser um caso típico onde, no fim, as #PESSOAS saem perdendo.
um #BANCO é #VIRTUAL em essência. sistemas processando #INFORMAÇÃO para outros sistemas. dependendo de quem você ouvir, algo em entre 30% [bloom.bg/2xENugw] e 50% [bayareane.ws/30kvYdV] de todos os postos de #TRABALHO do setor vão desaparecer nos próximos anos. radical.

Good to see @didoharding @julianhartley1 work emerging today with the publication of @NHSEngland @NHSImprovement @NHS_HealthEdEng Interim People Plan. Thread shows where things that matter to people are covered in plan. #OurNHSPeople @HealthwatchE 1/7
link.medium.com/E5wR40HvdX
Here’s a link to the plan: longtermplan.nhs.uk/wp-content/upl…
The introduction (pages 2 and 3) puts what people consistently tell @HealthwatchE about the need for joined-up staff in joined-up services at the heart of the plan. #OurNHSPeople 2/7 Pages 2-3 of Interim People Plan.
Important commitment that @NHS_HealthEdEng will ask people what we need from future doctors, to inform planning by royal colleges and @gmcuk. Of course, this ought to apply to all professional education across health and care, but it’s a good start. #OurNHSPeople 3/7 Page 15 of Interim People Plan.

[Day4: Strengths & Limits of #SciComm forms, media, & spaces]
It's theory vs practice day!

There are loads of resources out there for #BestPractices. Today, let's discuss the strengths & limitations YOU've found in trying #STEM #storytelling, #comedy, #SciArt, #digital, & more!
I'll start w/ my favorite resources: @edbeltane & @OliverEscobar's "Public Dialogue & Delibration" & #WendyFaulkner's "Dialogue in #PublicEngagement" handbooks.

How do participant #communication styles impede/help your purpose, eg. #dialogue vs #debate?
beltanenetwork.org/DialogueTheory…
These have been crucial in my understanding of #experiencedesign when creating events or experiences for diverse #scicomm audiences & participants.

There's a purpose for panels and debates. But also a reason why they fail in "changing minds" or creating power-balanced convos.

2 in 3 three people in Wales use #digital technology to support their #health through different actions. Our new report out today phw.nhs.wales/news-and-publi… @PublicHealthW @Cas__Sharp @markabellis
1 in 3 people in Wales use #digital tech to monitor their #health
But we found markedly lower levels in men than women, older ages (although 1 in 5 70+ yrs used tech to support health), less affluent areas, and amongst those who smoke/drink/inactive. #DigitalDivide. Lots more detail here. phw.nhs.wales/news-and-publi…

Hi #fintwit 😎 We are approaching a watershed moment in markets. Final deflationary phase of Kondratiev's winter is about to play out. Huge implications for #EUR, #Gold, #SP500, #DXY etc. I have some new interesting followers - hence something extra in this week's #HZupdates
#Kondratiev's winter is a period where #Velocity of Money drops which creates a disinflationary economic environment, where growth is subdued due to #debt levels. Since ~2000 we have been in this winter - and are still to see a range of "major economic events" unfold #HZupdates
In fact, we have never left the #Financial #Crisis. We have only been bouncing in the great "Financial and Sovereign Debt Crisis" of this #Kondratiev's winter. This can be observed from the #Deflation Gauges #Copper, #XAU, AUD, EUR. We are about to see wave C develop #HZupdates

A #data informed look at how the #human experience of #lawyering has changed over time.

Just as #clients need better #value propositions, #law firms need better business models. Meaningful #legal #transformation will occur where the two intersect.

legalevolution.org/2019/02/pay-ho…
H/T to @augierakow @robsaccone for the post #inspirelegal 🤓 email chain that #inspired this tweetable.

(Bc I’m a tweetable factory. 🤷🏻‍♀️)
Another reaction to this @wihender post: we NEED to deal with #automation anxiety in #legal.

Legacy models of law practice aren’t built for the pace of #business and volume of #information of the #digital age.

More #hours from more #lawyers can’t be the default answer.

"If you have nothing to hide you are worthless" Shoshana Zuboff #CPDP2019
Should we not gather in resistance against surveillance capitalism which has come to destroy human nature as industrial capitalism did to nature?
@murakamiwood digital is another special fix of capitalism to commodify aspects of human experience until now uncommodified.

#ChangeIsAProcess, yes we know. But if you screwed for the first four years what makes you think you can deliver anything in the next four?

We need campaign mandates that go beyond attacking the opposition or showing us pictures of people attending rallies.
What's your plan for the economy?
How will you address #SDG goals?
How will you fight Boko Haram?
How will you address the issues that allows Boko Haram to gain sympathizers in the first place?
How will you work with neighbouring countries to tackle transborder economic goals?
How will you make the Civil Service more competent and modern?
What ways will you help young Nigerians benefit from the #digital economy?
How will you make Nigeria the giant of Africa once again?

These are key issues for all candidates, not blind followership or ultra-support!

"I want to warn the world about an unprecedented danger that’s threatening the very survival of open societies.

…I’ll focus on #China, where President #XiJinping wants a one-party state to reign supreme."

project-syndicate.org/onpoint/the-ai…
"Xi is trying to consolidate all the available info about a person into a centralized database to create a 'social credit system'..people will be evaluated by algorithms that will determine whether they pose a threat to the 1-party state. People will then be treated accordingly."
"#China is not the only #authoritarian regime in the world, but it is undoubtedly the #wealthiest, #strongest & most developed in machine learning & #AI.

This makes #Xi the #most #dangerous #opponent of those who believe in the concept of #OpenSociety."

By Adrian Anansi.

2. Use Cut di Line.

2. I'm a 21st Digital Marketer that still doesn't trust online food delivery in JA
Step 2.
Logs on to Cut di Line:

Findings:
- Not user-friendly (and I'm a digital marketer that can break down any site functionalities)
- I don't know where is open or closed
- I just don't trust spend my $$$ here and I'm uncomfortable in the first 15 secs of browsing the site
