2021 has been one crazy year for me.

Recently took a break from twitter as I needed to think & reflect in solitude.

My biggest learnings / relearnings of 2021 - A thread as random as my thoughts. :))

#Life is fragile.

We never know when it shall be our last breath. Covid just reinforced this.

Do good. Be good. Expect nothing.
Make mistakes but have no regrets.
Forgive . Make peace often .
Live life each day to the best of your abilities.

That's all that can be done!

#InvestResponsibly

Always ensure you have a nominee to all your investments. Don't take on unnecessary loans.

Make a WILL !

Inform your spouse / family.
Document everything correctly &
responsibly.

Else, this becomes an added pain later on for the bereaved family !

Anybody who says “the #data don’t lie” either is ignorant or manipulative or both. The data are merely a tool that must be used responsibly & ethically to try to approximate “the truth” …some of which is unmeasurable (yet?). There are MANY #datascience methods & varying results
Everybody gets super excited about this new #AI #ML #machinelearning technique or that

You cannot build a RELIABLE house with low #quality bricks

First, look at the building blocks… meaning, how the #data fields are even defined & how the data are obtained

Who defined them?
I can’t tell you how glad I am that I have done coursework at both @MITSloan AND @StanfordGSB - Former immerses you in a ton of hands on analysis & options for analytic techniques useful in a #datascience job. Latter steps back to frame questions, assess missing data, biases.

#Thread Fighting systems of oppression: Why #empathy must inform our actions and politics:
Systems of oppression are founded on an “us vs them” narrative. These systems thrive by subjugating those who deviate from a group's bigoted norms deemed as the "other"; seeking to dehumanise and strip "other" individuals and communities of their sense of being and livelihood.
Empathy does the opposite—it works to validate all forms of existence. Author Isabel Wilkerson in her book 'Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents' asks us to nurture 'radical empathy' to challenge structural oppression.

Anyone who calls a socialist an enemy of ordinary people is an enemy of ordinary people – because socialism is precisely about protecting ordinary people.

Lie about that and what else will you lie about?

Anyone who calls a socialist an enemy of the economy is an enemy of the economy – because any fool knows the economy's real enemies are those who strip away its assets and hoard away its wealth.

Your patient has acute SARS-CoV-2 infection.

They are unvaccinated.

What’s the best way to talk to them about their vaccination status?

1/
In most patients with intact immune systems, vaccinations against SARS-CoV-2 work to reduce incidence and severity of COVID-19.

However, to date, approximately 40% of eligible Americans are unvaccinated.

As the delta variant spreads, and hospitals fill, these morally challenging encounters are on the rise.

And we are tired.

This month marks a decade since I completed medical #internship. I thought then that I had achieved my goal, that I would find joy in my work. Little did I know where life would lead me. My #reminisces & #reflections - too long for a tweet & too short for a blog - hence, a 🧵
As the first & only #medical student in the extended family, I was in #unfamiliar waters. Moving to uncle's house in another city was a not-too-comfortable but not-wholly-unpleasant change. I'm privileged to be part of a family who did all they could to keep me happy
The pedagogy was #authoritative & #oppressive; seemed to be designed to #humiliate, not teach. I couldn't learn by rote, didn't know of any better ways (pre- ubiquitous smartphone era) Expected to address #seniors using honorifics, I felt they were as unapproachable as teachers

Dr Sahadev made it big in business.
He decided to spend good amount of money to buy a good piece of land London and built a 3 storey villa
He had an impressive swimming pool in the garden with a 100-year-old Lychee tree in the backyard. In fact, he bought the property precisely because of this tree. His wife loved eating lychees.
During renovations, his friends urged him to get guidance from a fengshui master

Dr Sahadev never quite believed in Fengshui yet surprisingly he took the advice to heart and went out of his way to engage a fengshui master from Hong Kong.

3 Insanely Simple Reasons why this #SnapchatAd 👻 is CRUSHING‼️

THREAD (1/8)
#1 The ad is made to look Snapchat #Native. Many Snapchat ads are simply recycled TikTok or Instagram Ads, and while that can be successful, you can take your content to the next level by building #PaidContent that looks indistinguishable from #OrganicContent.

(2/8)
What makes it perfect for Snapchat? First, it is a selfie, makes up most of the content that organically circulates on the platform. Second, it uses a Snapchat native Caption Style. The translucent gray bar with Helvetica font has become irrevocably tied to Snapchat.

🏳️‍🌈 Ruth Coker Burks 🏳️‍🌈
“In 1984, when Burks was 25 & a young mother living in Arkansas, she would often visit a hospital to care for a friend who had cancer. During one visit, she noticed the nurses would draw straws, afraid to go into one room, its door sealed by a big red bag.
She asked why and the nurses told her the patient had Gay-Related Immune Deficiency (GRID), later known as AIDS. On a repeat visit, and seeing the big red bag on the door, Burks decided to disregard the warnings and sneaked into the room.
In the bed was a skeletal young man, who told her he wanted to see his mother before he died. She left the room and told the nurses, who said, "Honey, his mother’s not coming. He’s been here 6 weeks. Nobody’s coming”. Burks called his mother anyway, who refused to come visit her

FACT: Asymptomatic cases can still spread the coronavirus to someone vulnerable.

Vaccinate but still try to protect others who cannot / unable / unwilling (yes, let’s protect them too). #COVID19 #empathy
2) But homes, schools, and businesses are not HBO TV show sets with unlimited testing budgets. How many transmissions will there be if we ditch masks too early? variety.com/2021/tv/news/b…
3) We also aren’t rich like the Yankees— 8th member, shortstop Gleyber Torres, is positive for #COVID19 in latest team outbreak. All 8 members are fully vaccinated, thus “breakthrough positives.” Too early to ditch masks. Think of others not vaccinated yet.forbes.com/sites/joshuaco…

#HumpDayHumanism

I'd just gone hard on some #motivationalinterviewing about smoking cessation with a Grady elder one day. We talked about his grandbabies and his life. We even talked about his "nature."

He was looking deep into my eyes--like it was really resonating.

Yup.
2/
Me: "Well?"
Him: "Well what?"
Me: "What're your thoughts?"
Him: "My thoughts 'bout what?"

I groaned. He was tickled.

Me: "Sir! About quitting smoking?"

He raised one eyebrow at me and laughed again. This raspy, gravelly chuckle.

Him: "Miss Manning?"
3/
Me: *listening*
Him: "Tell me. Have you ever had somebody piss you off on a hourly job real, real bad--then step outside, flick your lighter, and then take a good, hard drag on a menthol cigarette?"

I shook my head no. Because I had not.

We live in an attention #economy & what #Tweetiatricians have known for decades (#Twitter started in 2006): importance of drawing attention to factual science-based information as compared to #misinformation & #disinformation, especially on #vaccines

You have to be fast & prolific to play catch up to this. I have 77K tweets, a moderate sized band of 6K followers interested enough to tolerate my volume but use of hashtags allows reach across Twittersphere. Trending hashtags = better for riding a way for that attention economy
If is unclear if we are now so siloed that tweets are ineffective with anti-vaxx. But not all anti-vaxx are QAnon

I have a range of writing & #communication styles

Outside the ED of hospitalist medicine, when I “talk like a man” - direct, unvarnished truths and or “taking up too much space”, there is pushback, affront. Others have noted men with same style as me are👍
#WomeninSTEM
#SciComm
In reality women can’t just email or communicate “like a man” for same results. Society *expects* different communication from women.

I’ve never been an exclamation point person but I use smiley faces

These studies + anecdotal experience:

“women don't negotiate for a very simple reason: they sense—correctly—that it will hurt them if they do... when women *do* negotiate... they end up worse off than if they’d kept their mouths shut”

The lack of empathy, or inability to feel pain the same when someone's skin is black/high malanin and you see them in pain, is literally documented in studies as well as a simply real life disparities.

Please stop with the "empathy" hogwash. We need to address systemic racism.
I *finally* figured out the whole "empathy" silliness and why I feel, increasingly this..

if somoene quotes brene brown at me on "vulnerability" - you think enslaved black women with babies were not vulnerable? Your WHOLE society/culture is designed to not see/feel black pain.
What I figured out is

by touting "empathy"
you can self-appoint yourself as "good"
with "but I am a good person"
or "but she was nice to so and so, therefore"
and deny racism and, more importantly

NOT CHANGE structures or policy
Do NOTHING and feel good about yourself

Sooooo....

...how much does @BreneBrown center on Black women, BIPOC, disabled, LGBTQ?

not opposed to all boundaries per se

BUT am a bit skeptical 🤨 🧐 🤔

in context of #DEI & structural inequity & racism

This can serve as a convenient “opt out” as a part time “ally”
This is a reality for many of us WOC entering spaces defined by white feminists

Am not Black. No one tries to touch my hair. I “pass” in ways that reduces how much I navigate vs get to “be”

When will boundaries of WOC be respected?

(Keep hands to self)

podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/bla…
Is it your boundaries that cause you to quietly, when no one can see or hear, act like this?

..to ✅ “I am a good person” for your own ego

while leaving black woman or BIPOC dealing with all the consequences

plus maybe 😒🤢😡😖😞triggered by flimsy, token support yet again

We spend billions per year on the #Leadership industry.
But uh, ahem, er … what exactly are we getting out of it, especially at this moment? A thread --- >
No one has exact figures on the “size” of the global leadership industry, or leadership development market, or whatever you prefer to call it. I have seen numbers from $14B to $24B to $366B (wow) back down to $44B. I honestly don’t think people know what is even involved in these
big numbers. I would guess we are talking mostly about books, speeches (speaker fees?), training modules, training programs, and the like. I’d speculate (but don’t know) that a huge chunk of that is book publishing. A book on every leadership angle has seemingly been written.

„I call for civil disobedience on part of parents

Infants..not allowed in Daycare
nor visit anyone
lonely young ppl

We parents are committed to THEIR well-being
AND
We are the engine
Our tax money PAYS for pensions [& #everything else]“

2/x What is NOW needed is #perspective and #balance

This is only possible through #compassion and #empathy

If one lacks both #compassion and #empathy,
then one should immediately #resign from influencial positions of power where such attributes are prerequisites of their role
One of my favourite researchers is Dacher #Keltner

My ongoing career dilemma is as follows:

Many people tell me to be less perfectionist or aim lower.

However, a plethora of data reveal there are different standards for different people for gatekeeping/recognition of merit.

I don’t feel comfortable fudging. Others do, tho.
First, I wonder if everybody is given this advice that they should aim lower & have lower standards?

Seeking to do something different than the status quo or “realistic” is generally considered #leadership and #innovation.

Why not push boundaries?

onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.111…
For many populations

our pushing the boundaries is the only way they get out of “the margins” or are no longer outside the walls

physical walls
policy walls
payment walls
definitions
access
etc

Those of us w/ identities not mainstream or of marginalized populations see it
