Friday is going to be a major #FireWx day. If you live within any of the areas below, it's a "pack your go bag/back your car into your driveway" day. Pay attention! It could save your life. #wildfire #weather
#Extreme fire conditions in Colorado tomorrow, if you live along the Front Range. I am not an official source, but I would strongly advise--if you live anywhere against brush/grassland/prairie/forest--to be ready to leave in an instant. #Colorado #FireWx

The vast majority of CT is misunderstanding the #Canadian situation. The simple fact is that the #convoys have nothing to do with #freedom or peaceful #protests.

First off: the #EmergenciesAct is not martial law and is not above the law.

cbc.ca/news/politics/…
The protesters are a fringe #rightwing #minority group, partly supported by the American #extreme right.

#Sabotaging the delivery of food and medical #supplies, blocking the movement of #international goods and services, holding up ambulances and firetrucks, preventing people from getting to #work - these are #criminal activities and not peaceful protests.

#Digital technologies, which have become one of the important parts of our lives, have numerous benefits in many areas such as #education, #health, #economy, etc. But, and there is a big but?
What are the costs of #digitalization for #children and #young people? How should families treat children on the internet or social media using? What do the figures tell us? Here is the threat on Children & Young People’s Mental Health in the Digital Age by the OECD in 2018. Image
Almost half of the world is connected to the #internet, and in countries that are members of the OECD almost everyone is #online. For children and young people today, being online and using social media have become an integral part of their lives.

Während der Pandemie haben wir uns an die Vorstellung gewöhnt, dass die meisten #COVID-Fälle „#milde #Verläufe sind.
Zb die #CDC sagt, dass 80 % der symptomatischen #SARSCov2 Infektionen einen "milden Verlauf" haben.
Manche denken: dann #kein Grund zur Sorge. Zurecht?

Im #allgemeinen #Sprachgebrauch beschreibt das Wort #mild idR etwas von #untergeordneter #Bedeutung.
Zum Beispiel wird #Erkältung oft als "#milde #Viruserkrankung" bezeichnet.
#Mild bedeutet also "durchaus evtl  unangenehm aber nicht weiter
von Bedeutung, keine große Sache"

Betrachten wir das Attribut "#mild" im Zusammenhang mit #Covid zeigt sich : #Allgemeiner #Sprachgebrauch und die #medizinische #Definition unterscheiden sich hier #signifikant, werden aber @vermischt, was zu #Verwirrung in der Kommunikation über den wahren Sachverhalt führt.

"#Data: a new direction" - a public consultation by @DCMS on "reforms to the UK’s #DataProtection regime":

gov.uk/government/con…

The consultation ends on 19 Nov 2021, and you can respond by e-mail to DataReformConsultation@dcms.gov.uk or online here:

dcms.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_4P… Image
A quick sample of initial reactions...

We're clearly going to be hearing a lot about #LegitimateInterests, as well as #commercial and #public ones. The real question being, how do this Government's interests actually align with YOURS?

140+ pages on a Friday is a lot to digest, but @lilianedwards' "penumbra of often futile determinedly populist ideas largely not evidence-based" seems entirely consistent with @DCMS's Drunkard's Walk through #data and #ID this past year...

Contributed to @Guardian Podcast 'Today In Focus': The murder of schoolteacher Samuel #Paty who had shown his class #cartoons of the prophet #Muhammad has rekindled a debate in #France over #secularism & the state’s role in regulating #FreeSpeech. (21'-29')
I emphasise that we can discuss the general problem of hateful #cartoons about the Prophet #Muhammad & his Muslim followers that spread collective guilt & humiliate often underprivileged #minority communities beyond acts of barbaric #terrorism. #Racism #Islamophobia #CharlieHebdo
I think that @EmmanuelMacron acted in a manner that was rash & unstatesmanlike following the vile murder of Samuel #Paty. He has effectively incorporated #cartoons mocking #Islam into its domestic policies. He defended them as part of French culture & #France’s global image.

🗣️Our new book is out today: “#CasaPound Italia: contemporary #Extreme #Right #Politics” co-written by @CaterinaFroio @SciencesPo_CEE Matteo Albanese, Giorgia Bulli and myself @CrexUiO, for @routledgebooks @FFRAFAction (thread 1/15)
shorturl.at/nSW19
@CaterinaFroio @SciencesPo_CEE @CrexUiO @routledgebooks @FFRAFAction The volume presents a theory of contemporary right-wing #extremism that helps understand how a fringe group like CPI has been successful in placing its ideas in public debates in #Italy. shorturl.at/nSW19 (2/15)
@CaterinaFroio @SciencesPo_CEE @CrexUiO @routledgebooks @FFRAFAction We argue that this type of success has to do with #hybridization, which we define as the blurring of five main aspects of ‘#extreme right politics’: #ideology, internal structure, #activism, #mobilization and #communication.

There's a seriously big turnout for climatologist David Phillips tonight at @NLGEOCENTRE. Let's hope he does some real talk on #climatechange. He's already given a pitch for #yyt + #windpower
Plenty of chuckles from the crowd about our crummy weather (wettest... windiest... etc) stats #nlwx
David talks about the transition
1) global warming
2) climate change
What's next? 3) atmospheric terrorism

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.

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.
