How can places use the Levelling Up Fund to deliver economic growth?
@DanniMason11's latest blog summarises the key takeaways from @whatworksgrowth's #evidence briefing on Levelling Up Fund interventions and impacts.
A short thread 🔽
whatworksgrowth.org/blog/the-level…
🔹 Levelling up and transport investment…
Evidence shows transport projects are one of the best eligible interventions to result in positive economic outcomes, although impacts are highly context-dependent.
🔹 Levelling up and physical regeneration…
Evidence shows that the physical regeneration of public spaces is unlikely to deliver much economic growth, but can have positive impacts for residents’ quality of life.

Announcement from @fordnation sank my heart today. As an ER doctor, person of color and #Scarborough native, I feel defeated 😢. The measures are not going to get wave 3 under control. #BIPOC #ERdoc @SHNcares @torontolife @JustinTrudeau @SCMirror 1/
When I landed as an #immigrant in #Canada, my life started in #Scarborough. My parents (#heros) struggled to find jobs that matched their education. That didn't stop them from working hard / hustling even if it meant 2 jobs at times to keep bills paid and food on the table. 2/
My family lived in an apt building that had mostly racialized/middle-low income families (#affordability). Not much social distancing when large crowds wait for elevators (#EssentialWorkers) or use the shared laundry facilities. This pandemic brings back those vivid memories 3/

A #thread on our recent paper in @PLOSNTDs examining ecological #evidence-base for #DiseaseControl management practices for #KyasanurForestDisease #AcademicTwitter #Scicomm #OneHealth; paper led by @SarahBurthe from @MonkeyFever_ consortium
#Diseasecontrol strategies originate through endorsements by Governments/academia/authorities; they're often not field-tested robustly; even when they are, evidence is limited to one sector (cf. #OneHealth #Intersectoral approaches);
#publichealth approaches ought to be contextual & their effectiveness ought to be evaluated, yet strategies for disease control often spread through word of mouth and are sometimes untested;

At #GlobalScienceCongress #ScientificThinkingAndAction we talked about the relationships between relatability, trust, #scicomm, communicating about pseudoscience, and changing people's minds.
Regarding all the above, the last one, I'd like to share a story.
Thread
It was the eve of the third and last day at our country's largest #science festival held by @Akademie_ved_CR.
I was at our skeptic organization's stand, when an older gentleman approached me, among the last visitors there.
"I'm an engineer", he introduced himself.
"Do you believe in #aliens?" he continued, without pause.
I smile and reply, my voice box tired: "We can't rule out their existence, the Universe is a big place."
The engineer leans over my table, wagging his eyebrows conspiratorially: "But do YOU believe that they are among us?"

1/A retired #oncology professor from a Govt. College. Now dabbles in #Ayurveda. Runs an 'ashram' in Kerala to 'treat' #cancer patients. He refers a patient with BCLC-C stage liver cancer 2me. A nice letter 4 further management. Patient has advanced cancer
Systemic therapy option+
2/ I spent 50 mins with patient/family - discuss prognosis, comfort care - the works. Once patient left 4som blood tests, I tell family, separately, regarding end of life care, once the time comes. They wer sad but contend. Very crunched 4money. So best option - they cudnt afford
3/ Best approved option for advanced liver cancer is Atezo+Bevaci - too expensive. So they tuk next good option - Lenvatinib - affordable for them. I sent a detailed letter with plans, along with patient son, to the evidence-based turned #ayurveda oncology professor.

🚨 "We indicated a willingness to [hand over documents to the committee], we then had correspondence from the @ScotGov who only would only agree [to us doing so] if we gave the documents to them [first] so they could – as they put it – 'make suitable redactions'."

#SalmondSpeaks
🤯#ProceduralUnfairness
"The Investigating Officer (IS) presents the case for the prosecution before the defendant is even informed about the procedure. Then the [accused], instead of being able to present their own case, has to give that case to the IS to present on his behalf."
🤯#ProceduralUnfairness
"The @PermSecScot decision not to allow me any contact with civil servants or even have documents (like my own diaries)."

Why would Civil Service use a procedure, to then hand over to a political party for sanction?

"Highly questionable!"

Lockdowns don’t save lives and #Sweden is all the proof you need

History will record Covid-induced #lockdowns as the product of #pseudoscientific ideology, manifestations of an unprecedented #masshysteria and drummed-up #fear.

#Coronavirus #Lockdown

The lack of #evidence #lockdowns actually worked is a world scandal

There is still not a shred of real proof that the planet's reckless stay-at-home experiment made any difference

Last month, the @HouseDemocrats impeached Donald John #Trump. When they did so, they adopted a resolution proclaiming that their impeachment was done in the name of the #HouseofRepresentatives and in the name of, and for, the United States of America.
That formula, explaining that the House impeached someone and did so in the name of the House and in the name of the United States, is common. Yet the assertion is troubling.

Half or more of the country disapproves of the House’s impeachment, and of the Senate’s trial.
But politicians will still claim they are doing it for us.

They aren’t.

And it is particularly urgent that we repudiate the idea that the House’s 2021 #impeachment of #DonaldTrump was in our name.

Random thoughts on the farcical #impeachment #show #trial.

Where's #ChiefJustice #Roberts?

To clarify, the Senate is NOT required to employ the services of the Chief Justice in the conduct of an impeachment trial except when the President is on trial.
Excepting presidential impeachments of #Clinton and #Trump, the modern Senate has impeached through a process in which the matter tried in committee, rather than before the whole Senate, and then and submitted to the Senate for ultimate judgment by the entire body.
In fact, this method was used in the modern impeachments of federal judges @RepHastingsFL and #WalterNixon.

Mark, @MrMasonmills is scamming people, he is not a person within @Conservatives or @10DowningStreet and he ABSOLUTELY 100% stated all members would get fully refunded, complain to your bank they are repaying the fees due to fraud.

Here are some of Masons remarks... #EVIDENCE
Claiming he is funded with £1million us fraud, also accepting payments without declaring is a crime. This Myles person (@MrMasonMills) seems to be in very uncertain waters with legality of what he is doing.

@HMRCcustomers @m^etpoliceuk @UKSFO @CityPoliceFraud
@MaryWakefield this fraudster is suggesting he is running some secretive unknown thinktank called NFG New Frontier Group with your husband #DominicCummungs & close friends, any thoughts?

@WestminsterWAG @michaelgove any thoughts?

These torture devices were designed to prolong a stress position.

Remember to show your friends who voted for Biden the evidence of the horrors of the regime he publicly plans to appease.

Or is approval of your Biden friends more important to you?

1/FYI:Opioid Rx’s ⬇️ 60% vs 9 years ago.

Outcomes have not been good. OD deaths are way ⬆️, & patients traumatized

This thread covers 4 years of my peer-reviewed articles.

Let’s recalibrate policy, measure what we are doing, and LISTEN to the folks whose lives are at stake
2/This is the overall policy review of how we got here and how we mis-allocated the response (with @AJ_Gordon) ,

and why policy winds up (inevitably) being less than rational in the real world @AddictionJrnl onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.111…
3/This piece says why efforts to “Turn the Tide” with a narrow focus on Rx risked a Riptide for patients, as fentanyl deaths rose.

The article led me to brief then Surgeon General @vivek_murthy in 2017- who shared this concern completely tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.10…

Voter fraud was used in the 2008, 2012, 2014, 2016, 2018, & 2020 elections. We saw “found” ballots for one candidate in non-approved locations. We saw unexplained data anomalies. Evidence was substantial, but no investigations?! Time to end this... #MerryChristmas #Thread
#Election2020 Massive Voter Fraud & Election Fraud Orchestrated by Democrats & Conspirators, with Cover-Up Co-Conspirators in Media & Social Media platforms. This means #RICO , #Coup , #Sedition , & #Treason.
When you have this many election officials crying foul, data scientists crying foul over voting system data, voter crying foul over votes cast fraudulently in their name, dead voters, senile nursing home residents targeted, & people hiding machines & evidence, it is malevolent.

1. This year, universal #MailInBallots were widely adopted by states in response to the #Pandemic.

This year, 9 states plus #WashingtonDC mailed #Ballots to everyone on their voter rolls, while others suspended the witness requirement.
2. #Progressive groups in many states sued to ease #ElectionSecurity features for #MailInBallots and, in some cases, to allow #Ballots to arrive after #ElectionDay.
