@capebretonpost Typos in a headline are a BIG no-no. #CBPost Image
MEMO TO: @hfxgov councillors.

Can surplus land be sold for $1.00 to accommodate #AffordableHousing? Can permit fees, subdivision fees, and zone amendment fees be waived when affordable housing projects are in the making? #CBRM #HRM #Halifax @CBRMGov…
We are grateful to Coun. Gordon MacDonald @tobinroader for keeping affordable housing on council agenda. As has been pointed out around the council table, affordable housing is not a municipal responsibility.

Thankfully though this doesn’t mean it can’t be a municipal priority. Image

Will ⁦@GeoffMacLellan⁩’s #affordablehousing task force do anything about #REIT’s?

REIT’s own or invest in income-producing real estate & distribute profits to their shareholders. Many are traded publicly on the stock market. #nspoli #Halifax…
2) @MichaelTGorman Nova Scotia's DM of housing said Wed. that non-profit housing will have to be "dramatically" expanded to address the province's housing crunch.

(Thus far both Geoff MacLellan and Tim Houston only seem interested in ‘market’ solutions.)…
3) One of the benefits of non-market housing is that the units remain affordable for the long term.

That's a key difference from many private developments that get govt. funding to include a handful of affordable units. #HRM @hfxgov @MikeSavageHFX @dubehalifax1 @HRMLovelace Image

1.How many lives can we save just by funding housing for persons experiencing intimate partner violence? #ph260720 #DomesticViolenceAwarenessMonth #DVAM2021 #HousingISjustice
2.Domestic violence cases were up 35% in Baltimore during the stay at home order. That’s an average of 6 more calls per day to the police and 3 more calls per day to emergency hotlines. #ph260720 #HRM #DomesticViolenceAwarenessMonth #DVAM2021
3.Domestic violence affects 1 in 4 women and 1 in 10 men in their lifetime, BUT that is widely understood to be an undercount.… #ph260720 #DomesticViolenceAwarenessMonth #DVAM2021

The Truth About #OpenOffices
”When the firms switched to open offices, face-to-face interactions fell by 70%.”

#HRM #WorkplaceDesign…
But ”hybrid #openoffice designs are not a panacea. If you are going to let people choose the spaces that best meet their individual needs, your workers might as well be remote.”
And #remotework hinders #communication: ”we found that remote workers communicated nearly 80% less about their assignments than colocated team members did; in 17% of projects they didn’t communicate at all.”

F/U recent ACG-VGR "High-Resolution Manometry: Thinking beyond the Chicago Classification", @JPandolfinoMD answered Qs that u can encounter when reading #HRM routinely. Q&A posted on ACG circle @AmCollegeGastro. For #GITwitter who may not have access. Here are some (summarized)
Q: How do u explain achalasia w/ NORMAL IRP. Isn't achalasia characterized by loss of nerves at LES=abnormal IRP?
Dr. Pandolfino: A few explanations-If u start w/ basal LES pressure of 12mmHg- u will naturally have an IRP < 15. Another issue is that HRM catheter...
...only assesses contact & the mechanics of LES can be such that there is minimal contact-even though there is no relaxation. The HRM catheter is not the best tool to assess relaxation- u need strain measures in the muscle & need to see lengthening in the muscle...

In August 1895, D. M. Thompson of #Musquodoboit discovered gold in a boulder in #CowBay, #HRM.
Check out this thread for the history of #gold mining in the area!

@BarbaraAdamsPT @bill_karsten @DarrenFisherNS @darrellsamson @MikeSavageHFX #nspoli #novascotia #halifax #nshistory ImageImage
After much trenching, in November he exposed a cross vein which was identified as the source of the boulder. In winter of 1895-6, he erected a 5-stamp, water-powered mill on #CowBay River, 1/4 mile south of his mine. From June-December 1896, he recovered 324 #gold ounces.
#nspoli Image
Thompson's success drew others and 3 or 4 veins were opened. In 1897, 560 ounces of #gold were recovered.
Despite properties changing hands and investments being made, the #CowBay mines were largely idle for several years until 1905 when 127 ounces of production were recorded. Image
