Excited to hear from Joe Tarbert, former criminal defense barrister & current Impact & Partnerships Manager @redemptionroast - a UK org that aims to teach and provide ex-offenders professional roastery & barista skills + have real #impact.
"We are a business with a #social impact. We provide training but also #employment for guys after they leave #prison." ... "They'll lern everything from roasting, to packaging, to delivery. They are paid for their time. And on release, connected to the employment support team." Image
"Guys are v. excited to get behind a coffee machine, seeing how it works, and how to make a coffee. We move away from 'theory behind coffee' to actually doing it: learning whilst doing. Guys love it. They become more confident [...] It gets competitive. But they love the process" Image

I'm now joining the #NISOPlus23 session: "Making the business case for investing in metadata" with Josh Brown, Heather Kotula, Michelle Urberg, & Julia McDonell
#Metadata #MetadataMatters #NISOPlus
The opportunity costs of poor metadata re-use - Josh Brown from @MoreBrains_Coop
PIDs are keystone metadata! - Powering Reuse, Automation, Aggregation & Analysis
#metadata #NISOPlus23
NOT reusing #metadata has costs in money, time and knock-on effects - rekeying of metadata is essentially unnecessary duplication of effort across sectors, institutions and individuals! #NISOPlus23

Wat is het en wat kunnen we verwachten?

Een draad 🧵
2. Wat gaat er gebeuren?

Waarschijnlijk wordt in Davos een nieuw #platform gelanceerd: The GCV. Het platform is ontwikkeld door @Microsoft en @Accenture.

Het is een #metaverse platform voor het doelgericht #virtueel #samenwerken tussen allerlei publiek-private #stakeholders.
3. Kortom:

🔹Het is een metaverse platform
🔹ontwikkelt door 80 partners
🔹gericht op versterking
🔹voor doelgericht samenwerken
🔹tussen publieke en private partijen
🔹op een virtuele manier.

Het vervangt niet maar komt naast de fysieke bijeenkomsten.

#CentralAmerica #ClimateChangeNOW #ExtremeWeather #HurricaneJulia #IMPACT 16-day assessment THREAD.

It is time to consider what is about to happen in Central America from a #LossAndDamages perspective.
With less than 72 hours till #HurricaneJulia's expected landfall in Nicaragua, #TD13L #PC13L #Invest91L has already wreaked untold havoc in Venezeula, it is now over Colombia. The death toll is rising.

What is ahead is dangerous. #ExtremeWeather impacts for 200 million souls.
All of these countries are forecast to recieve extreme rainfall on coastal areas (where people are concentrated) and in many cases deep inland.

The purple and white fringed areas in the map (Top Right) are forecast to recieve 7-25 inches of rain.

Da ich derzeit mehrmals in den vergangenen zwei Tagen einen Blick darauf werfen darf: ein paar Gedanken zu großen Live-Events und der Verantwortung großer Unternehmen.
Die #DigitalX ist für die @deutschetelekom ein voller Erfolg.
Die Stimmung ist selbst bei Regen ausgelassen, das Line-up bietet vor allem vieles, endlich trifft man sich wieder, die Zahlen stimmen. Aus Nachhaltigkeitssicht stellt sich das Ganze etwas anders dar:
Auch wenn das Event der Begegnung, dem Austausch und dem Lernen dient, so profitieren v. a. die Telekom und Partnerunternehmen sowie ein paar Gastronomiebetriebe und die Stadt @Koeln – zumindest als Digitalhub und Event-Ziel.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, were adopted by the United Nations in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that by 2030 all people enjoy peace and prosperity.
They are collection of 17 interlinked global goals designed to be a "shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future''

Don't get me started on #Impact. Ich habe diesen Irrsinn im UK miterlebt. Der Begriff ist dazu da, jegliche langfristige und Grundlagenforschung sowie alles, was nicht anwendungsorientiert ist, zu diskreditieren. Wir können den nicht zu unseren Gunsten wenden.
Impact spielt eine wichtige Rolle im REF, der regelmäßigen zentralen Evaluation aller Institute und Einrichtungen. Dieses Impact muss auf die Allgemeinheit nachgewiesen werden (*nicht* z.B. auf Studierende, sondern echt so auf den Mann an der Bushaltestelle).
Wie also weist man dieses mysteriöse Impact nach? Man plant zu jedem Projekt auch eine Ausstellung und Medienauftritte. Wisst ihr, wieviel Arbeit die Koordination von sowas macht - während gleichzeitig das Damoklesschwert von Stellenkürzungen und Schließungen über einem hängt?

On leadership team briefings..

At our school, the leadership team have a daily briefing at 7.50am. It’s deliberately operational, but it’s impact goes far beyond logistics.

It’s ostensibly about cover & on-call and the day’s events etc etc.. (important and thrilling stuff!😊)

But it’s a ten minute window that can make or break a day, that can inspire or derail, that can motivate or make you want to get right back in your car and drive home.

Knowing how crucial this ten minute window is for the leadership team, I decided to seek some feedback on how I run the briefings to refine and sharpen my practice.

And then I decided not to. I decided to do something else instead.

Our 1st #Session at #GCEG2022 was all about the (dis)connection of #cities, regarding corporate affiliations and #investments: within global and national #CityNetworks as well as with their regional #hinterlands. (1/5)

#THREAD on #WHAT is #RBI likely to do tomorrow at the #MPC and #Why and how it would #IMPACT Markets? #RETWEET

(1) A rate Hikes I’d probably 30-40bps
(2) More #Importantly, a 25-50bp CRR Hike as well

What are the Drivers of this Decision?
RBI biggest Driver of Policy in my view is FOREX.

India is suffering Daily Forex Outflows Due to
(1) high Commodity Prices (Oil & Coal etc)
(2) FPI outflows
(3) Rising Remittances while FDI has slowed down

Recall that Jndia is still NOT added to the JPM EM debt Index (NA)
Two ways to arrest the INR depreciation is to raise Rates (REPO) or reduce Liquidity (CRR)

But we know India has a Demand Issue.

More #IMPORTANTLY, higher Rates will HURT the Govts Borrowing Cost and Eventually Raise System Deposit Rates

💭The issue is that Racism exists on all levels. And because its so embedded in our societies, it's hard to recognize and even harder to change. Image

Building a #refi thesis at the intersection of #web3 and #climate is equal parts fascinating and confounding.

It's easy to be a critic (or labeled as one) in this domain; what's difficult is suspending skepticism to understand how refi applications must evolve over time.
Pivoting our global emissions trajectory is going to take everyone, and it's absolutely critical that the climate community finds better ways of engaging and collaborating with fresh faces and and approaches in the industry.
My overarching takeaway is still that while tokenized #carboncredits and ecosystem services are asset-backed approaches that have intrinsic value, very few solutions have begun to address the critical challenges outlined in the first thread I wrote on this topic.

Lately, the proposal of the addition of the @Saber_HQ  LP token to be an asset on @solendprotocol has been executed. Check the thread below to see the impact of this addition.
#Solanaszn #impact $SLND $SBR Image
@Saber_HQ @solendprotocol 1. @solendprotocol is by far the largest lend-borrow market on Solana, with over $1B of user deposits.
However, over $234M of this is in USDC or USDT ~ ¼ total deposit. If this were in Saber, it would earn both swap fees and contribute to TVL of both protocols

#Solanaszn #impact
@Saber_HQ @solendprotocol 2. So, based on this, there was a proposal of 85,000 SBR of incentives for borrowing USDC-USDT LP on @solendprotocol

I am truly grateful for another year, and oh what an impactful 365 days it has been. To our Heavenly King, the One who clothes us with His ‘coat of many colours’, to Him be the glory, the honour, and the praise, this day and eternally. Image
Reflecting on the past year, I would say one of its highlights was the opportunity to share my expressions with the world through the Forbes platform with its veritable visibility in the global public consciousness.
I am humbled by the testimonies that have flooded in speaking of the great impact this showcase has had on businesspersons, political enthusiasts, researchers, and clerical colleagues, in the way they lead and serve. The entire experience has been awe-inspiring in so many ways.

How the #DigitalDevelopment community thinks about sharing #information, #resources, and #data and partners to advance #DigitalTransformation will be key to creating #impact from our efforts and ensuring country #governments can replicate them to better serve their #citizens.
DIAL thinks about #partnerships in everything it does—in fact, were founded in 2015 by a partnership of #global #donors seeking to connect incredibly promising #DigitalDevelopment efforts that had failed to achieve #scale.

An Exclusive Series by @vivbajaj where everyone can learn the art of investing!

Summary of Episode 4: Impact of Income Tax on your Investments💵

A thread(🧵)... Image
In one sense, when you're #investing, you're giving back to #Society, because you're giving them money.

The fact that you're giving to someone else means that Economic activity grows👇
Even in a #Bank, when you're #investing in a Savings Account, the bank will give you a little interest.

It will give that money in the form of a loan to some company or even give you back the same in the form of some EMI. 👇
