I am so frustrated with the misogyny that is getting perpetuated.

Reported to me by an immigrant guy - who is assimilating to norms - on what is common in a neurosurgery resident office:

Talking about girlfriends’ “b**bs”

....in front of female PAs and med students
1/
Describing women with multiple sexual partners as “human gutters”

U.S. professors, tell him the law has become “gynocentric”

that men need to be afraid and are falsely accused

@TIMESUPHC @choo_ek @janevandis @arghavan_salles

Why #HeforShe matters

2/
Let’s even set aside outrage for a sec

How can you speak of women as “human gutters”, discuss your girlfriend’s “b**bs” at work in front of female med students and PAs

AND claim you are oppressed and need to be scared?

You *are still* openly engaging in sexual harassment

When someone says the word #SIP, most of us associate it with equity #mutualfunds. But did you know that SIPs are possible in the fixed income asset class as well?
#Debt SIPs can be one of the most useful ways to meet your short term goals, recurring goals, and asset allocation needs.
SIPs in #debtfunds can be used to meet yearly school fees, build an emergency reserve, your annual vacation, regular recurring expenses, working capital, etc.

Yesterday I visited the cafe where my brother works. His work is a big deal. Because he has an #IntellectualDisability #DevelopmentalDisability and #InclusiveEmployment is ridiculously hard to find. We talk a lot on #MedTwitter about being #Inclusive. 1/
I am part of those conversations. They usually centre around #GenderEquity, sometimes #Antiracism, occasionally #LGBTQ+ rights, and once in a while #Disability - but under that term I almost never hear about #DevelopmentalDisability, or more importantly, how we - physicians 2/
members of society with privilege, including for many of us, our own businesses (yes, for those of you in North America, your medicine practice is run as a small business), could be actively supporting truly #InclusiveEmployment. My brother has had many jobs. Almost none of 3/

#DevelopmentCongress yesterday saw @KVairavamoorthy opening the event with a thought, when we can maintain a town sized community of 750,000 people airborne at any given time with modern water & sanitation amenities, what stops us from providing it to our fellow humans (1/n)
Drawing from his heritage, he noted, "it is the management of water and sanitation that has determined the longevity and exuberance of civilizations". #Resilience #Sanitation #ClimateResilience (2/n)
The tank systems prevalent in Sri Lanka and South of India were drawn as examples, as attempts by decision makers then to maintain an ecological balance while attempting to improve economic prosperity #EcologicalCivilization (3/n)

At #FORCE2019 @npscience getting everyone warmed up for a panel on "Who will influence the success of #preprints in biology and to what end?"
@npscience . @npscience laid important foundations for the discussion: (1) be aware of stakeholders' cultural backgrounds and the influences on the their viewpoints; and (2) it's always a balance between individual vs collaborative gains. #Force2019
@npscience First panelist @ReaderMeter compared #preprints to a staging area, akin to how we would interact with an #opensource project, where all sorts of collaboration could happen and #openscience practised 🌟 #Force2019

Thread on how #inclusion, or lack thereof, affects #Wellbeing:

⚠️: upcoming #vulnerability moment

Do you ever feel Iike you don’t belong in the spaces you occupy?
I do.
The feeling is isolating & discouraging.

The reasons why are complex, complicated. /1
#medtwitter #burnout
I will confess here that being in #dermatology and in #academia magnifies these feelings.

Being courageous, stepping outside comfort zones, making your voice heard... it’s good, necessary, but the way you’re perceived and received matters. It has impact.

It’s complicated.

The cycle of self-confidence can be a positive or negative one, and often starts early in youth, affected by things such as parental upbringing, privilege, etc.

That cycle can build on itself, and have huge implications for one’s professional and personal wellbeing.

For my fellow white #bospoli voters, especially those of us in District 5: A thread on place, identity, and entitlement.
👇👇👇
I’ve knocked on a lot of doors this cycle, and talked to a lot of voters in Rozzie and Hyde Park. As the Boston City Council edges toward a majority POC body, one theme I’ve heard from white voters is a concern over “identity politics”.
This worry over candidates of color (who note their own perspectives as an attribute) assumes that electeds can’t provide constituent services while ALSO working to promote #equity in a city with a huge racial wealth gap. It also ignores the fact that…

Brief thoughts on the meaning of words: #diversity, #equity, and #inclusion. (1)
The use of the word “diversity” to mean “homogeneity of thought” was a brilliant and highly effective strategy to silence and shame different opinions. (2)
Same goes for “equity,” meaning making up for past injustices, as opposed to “equality,” which means treating people equally. (3)

Dear all 🙂Hope you enjoy the weekend! We are still in the Twilight Zone. Despite continued deteriorating economic fundamentals across the globe, US stock market continues to rally. But for how long...? Stay tuned for some #HZupdates
Indicators and signals across the globe continue to suggest economic slowdown - which slowly but surely spreads to all geographical regions and industries. It is my firm belief, that US will not decouple and US #equities will realize this at some point #HZupdates
#WTI sends clear signal from major Ending Diagonal. We may rally further in wave (B) - but soon we will see a reversal, which will send #Oil towards its LT-target of <20USD #HZupdates

Here’s the Trade Setup for the Volatility Burst Strategy:
Volatility = ATR of the last 20 Days
High & Low Vol = Highest High & Lowest Low of Volatility in last 252 Days
Upper Band = Highest High of High over the last 50 Days
Lower Band = Lowest Low of Low over the last 50 Days
#2
Back-test reports of the Volatility Burst Strategy show that its Annual Return Percentage is 28.47%. This is what the equity curve looks like.

As you can see, it’s important to take a position at the right time. But it’s also important to know how to exit when you’re losing.
#3
The drawdown graph of the Volatility Burst Strategy shows the maximum loss incurred.
The next step? We’re going to add a trailing stop loss and see what happens next.

If a person cares to get the right advice early in his #investing journey, outcomes will be far superior.

Where outcomes are poor or ordinary, the quality of #advice is the most likely cause.

Investors unduly worry about returns, even when quality of investing is decent. 1/5
Every step of my #investing journey, I received #GoodAdvice & #value everything I was taught. To this day, I seek constantly advice from the wiser. What I get, I freely give. As I learn, I teach. I rarely forget what was taught from day1, though my early Gurus are no more. 2/5
The early years are crucial. Starting with virtually nothing, we need to get #GoodAdvice, wise counsel & emotional support. From a few 1000s to one's first Lakh is the toughest part. From a lakh to a million is not easy either. Scale must be carefully sought. Most fail here. 3/5

I'm a few years behind the curve; y'all still do follow trains?

Well, I'm starting one. Let's do one about #equitydesign.

@albanvillamil asked if I knew people, places, and tools for equity and design, and I wanted everyone to know everyone.

Spread the word! (1/million)
That being said, like equity work, this isn't (and arguably can't be) the definitive

Equity is a verb, like @_ChristineOrtiz says, so my hope is this is only the beginning.
I tried to get everyone's resources and descriptions correctly, but if there's anything wrong, feel free to correct me! (Crit's in our blood, right?)

Feel free to add, amend, include, and let's get to know each other. Cool? Cool.

Next Wednesday @CityofVancouver staff report back to #Council on ramping up our #ClimateAction, in line with the #IPCC science and in response to the #ClimateEmergency. Here’s my breakdown of the recommendations 👇
This #ClimateEmergency report outlines 6 Big Moves for Council to direct staff to pursue & come back w. comprehensive/costed plans. Plus 53 Accelerated Actions to move on now. The targets are strong & won’t be easy. This is what governing in line with the science looks like.
Big Move 1: By 2030, 90% of people will live within an easy walk/roll of their daily needs (we’re at 45%). Focused on land-use & complete n'hoods, it would ⬇️ 153,000 tonnes carbon/year, while creating ⬆️ housing choices, ⬆️ social interaction, and supporting local businesses.

A thread of key points from new book Shattering Inequities by Robin Avelar la Salle & Ruth S Johnson of @OrendaEd A must-read for anyone interested in #equity & #disadvantage in #education
E 1. Moral imperative. Every system is perfectly designed to get the results it gets. Every child deserves premium education that currently only some experience. Every educator has moral obligation to help most vulnerable students receive the best education available anywhere.
Equity Concepts: The Inevitability Assumption - mistaken belief that demographics determine destiny. The Normalisation of Failure - when lack of success of a group is tacitly accepted; failure is normalised in school culture.

Thread on the @KotakMF #FMP saga; Attn: @IndiaSebi

Highlight is on an #AMC which, in an FMP, considers it #prudent to reduce the risk, of an asset, by accepting a riskier asset as #security; knowing, the first asset shall mature with the FMP, giving no time to act if defaulted.
We reserve further comment. We shall just answer few questions raised by #investors.

1. FMP has a #fixedhorizon, at the end of which investors expect their money back. Also, they expect not to lose money. Knowing these expectations, who decided to launch the FMP?
Ans:Kotak AMC
2. A high #yield #portfolio may be made in many ways. Risk can be protected by structuring deal in many ways. Who made a portfolio of high #coupon/yield (11%) #debt instruments by lending upto 40% to #borrowers against security of their companies #equity #shares?
Ans: Kotak AMC

Academics w disabilities so often face such ludicrous misconceptions re equal opps in their work environment (conferences, job market, teaching etc) it makes me want to attach this pic to my email signature. It shouldn't need explaining! @cat_oakley @AcademicAbleism @acaprecariat
And let me be clear: the situation is not very dissimilar for academics with children, those from economically disadvantaged backgrounds etc.
So much time&money is spent on outreach telling these groups academia is for them-only to be made not to work for them when they're there
The narrative of those with disabilities "seeking an unfair advantage" by insisting on the support they are not only legally entitled to, but that indeed creates a level playing field in the first place (and often not even that) absolutely needs to stop!

Dear Parties involved in the upcoming Federal Elections in Canada,

Many Canadians, including myself, are non-partisan. Feigning to hold ‘non-partisan public events/townhalls’ doesn’t fool us. We see that your meetings are stacked with your Party. Be honest; act with integrity.
If you indeed want to serve the Public’s interests don’t be afraid to be challenged by the Public. Integrity is lacking. Don’t have preplanned ‘random’ questions framed as statements attacking your opponent- all of this makes you disingenuous- making it harder to believe you.
Integrity, accountability, an inclusive plan is missing in Government. Get to your plan that secures a future where we all can live & thrive.

Stop wasting our time with the childish antics and politricks. Get to your plan.

Good morning everyone
This thread once again is for those who are married. No vex! I know I am biased. Forgive me!!!🙏🙏🙏🙏

Today i want to talk about physical attraction between spouses
#HappyMarriage
You might be wondering if there is no physical attraction between spouses they wont be married in the first place? You are right but over time physical attraction can wear off. Marriage like relationship has to be nurtured
#HappyMarriage
Many assume that once you are married its over. You have shown you love each other. You have made the biggest commitment and professed your love to each other before the world and there is nothing more to do. Wrong!
This is the beginning of what to do!
#HappyMarriage
