1/6 For #PhysicalDistancing #NewZealand has introduced the concept of knowing & staying inside your bubble.
#Innovation #SlowtheSpread #StayHomeSavesLives #PlanktheCurve #ProtecttheVulnerable
2/6 This is a great way to conceptualise the zone-of-protection that we all need to have around us - to keep the virus out and keep us safe. #COVID19 #PhysicalDistancing #StayHomeSavesLives #PlanktheCurve
3/6 Although optimal protection comes when each person has their own separate bubble that is a 2-metre circumference around us, people cohabitating or self-isolating together can make a bubble together.

Apple unveils new iPad Pro with breakthrough LiDAR Scanner and trackpad support in iPadOS nr.apple.com/d2s6U0a9x5 // The "convergence" everyone has been waiting for? A "2 in 1" or a tablet or a toaster-refrigerator? Did Apple capitulate? Some context on evolution of devices… 1/ Apple iPad Pro and Magic Keyboard
2/ Hardware evolves just like software but we don't often see it the same way. We're used to talking about the cycle software bundling and unbundling, but hardware does the same thing. Every new generation of hardware begins this cycle anew.
3/ Certainly we're used to hardware adding ports or absorbing new technologies over time. Where things get really interesting with hardware is when a new "form" is introduced, often the first step is jettisoning many features from the leader.

1/ Hey #innovation #designthinking folks - embarking one of the largest challenges we’ve ever fought as a nation and as a world #COVID19. I know this is disruptive to all of our lives but we need EVERYONE with skills to help pitch in where they can. #TogetherWeCan
2/Here are few unsolicited ideas that we (healthcare system) will need innovation in, in no particular order, some better than others but here’s immediate braindump :
3/ we have many fabulous folks working already on diagnostics, therapeutics, vaccines — if you have those skills and not working on #COVID19, please consider joining forces with others to help them for the next 6-18 mo

If you have difficulty interpreting an ECG, I will explain the basic method that I use, and I am sure it will help you. It's called the basic "method of Dr. Roig". Here we go..
2/x
R-ate
The first step is to calculate the HR.
Total QRS x 6 = HR.
If HR > 100 bpm = Tachycardia.
If HR < 60 bpm = Bradycardia.
3/x
O-bserve the rhythm
The second step is to observe the rhythm.
If R-R interval is equal = Regular rhythm.
If R-R interval varies = Irregular rhythm.
If P wave is upright in lead II = Sinus rhythm.

1/So there was lots of talk at @AACNursing #AACNdoc20 re: #Nursing #PhD pipeline, getting folx esp prelicensure students ‘excited’ about #nursingscience & the #BStoPhD

I totally revamped our #nursingresearch & #innovation course @UMassAmherst last fall to do just that

Thread ⬇️
2/ I told the Asst Dean when I took it on that regardless of the learning objectives for the course I had only 1 GOAL:

That by the end of the semester, these students would be EXCITED!-or at very least, just a little bit CURIOUS-about a career in #nursingscience & #innovation
3/ A note about context: This was a course of ~85 Accel BS students, taught in an urban campus that is geographically ~40mins drive from main @UMassAmherst campus, in the . The classroom assigned had no windows. Class ran 8am-1030am Weds, before more courses. I say this b/c....

Lets talk about the #MonetaryPolicy Implications for #FinancialInnovation / #FinTech...
I am sure by this time we have all heard of the phenomenon known as #FinTech. Recently, I used the #GoogleTrends platform to ascertain the degree of search interest in the term "FinTech". The graphs depict a surge in interest from around 2014...
I took the #GoogleTrends analysis a bit further and determined where (geographically) interest in the search term #FinTech was most pronounced...

#energytwitter New #Businessmodels for #EU prosumers! Local energy trading and self consumption in EU nations. @Proseu_Project @BrownSdc @BaumanInstitute
@https://proseu.eu/sites/default/files/Resources/PROSEU_D4.1_Business%20models%20for%20collective%20prosumers.pdf
Disappearing subsidies are driving #innovation across decentralised generation. New ways of trading and sharing local electricity are coming @NewAngliaEnergy @exeterepg @Comm1nrg @Regen_insight @EnergyREV_UK @EnergySysCat @NatureEnergyJnl @energycities @Bankfieldbecky
Extending the definition of 'self' consumption to neighbourhoods and communities can really improve the viability of decentralised generation. This #p2p model is one way, but we think that micro trades can make local energy projects too 'markets' focussed. I.e. not fun 😑

thinking out loud about #WWIll in the #nigerian #tech space.
It all started with the then big boys of #innovation
with #ridehailing services. #Uber came into Nigeria and we realized taxis were not enough. whether it was because it was a popular international service
or because it had a good PR for representing your class or status, truth is #uber really did solve a problem. instead of walking to parks or bus stops looking for a taxi, your ride comes to you.
You have the right to choose what ride comes to pick you up based on your pocket
let's not even talk about convenience, the good Air conditioning that these guys used to offer during rides (not certain anymore) or the fact that it gave people the ability to have multiple jobs/sources of income once you have a vehicle.

Hard factual headlines will follow this one:

"Tories have maxed up UK state debt by 2.5 times in just 9 and half years!" This is unprecedented in peacetime!

1/15
"Despite #Tory #Lies to the contrary? UK #economy is flat on its back, and likely to fall further - GDP was just 0.1% in the 6 months to 30sep19 being our worst showing since the financial crash!"

2/15
GDP(Gross Domestic Product) = total output of UK #economy, on which vital tax-take depends. HMG needs our tax (from companies, employees, householders) to fund OUR public services. Flat GDP growth (low % uplift) means less capability to fund services on which we depend!

#Neuroscientists worldwide are increasingly studying #myelin and its amazing impact on rapid #learning, mastery, and neuroplasticity. So keep your circuits strong with deep, focused practice, but remember: #myelination requires quality versus quantity.
What Is #Myelination?
Myelination is the process of “insulating” a new neural pathway to strengthen it and to forge new default #behaviors. Heavily myelinated neural pathways are up to 300 times faster.
They’ve been optimized for speed and #efficiency. Increasing #myelination via intentional #practice helps us become more emotionally agile.

SFI President David Krakauer introduces our annual board of trustees symposium on New #Complexity #Economics - follow this thread for live coverage of talks by @EricBeinhocker @AKStanger @ole_b_peters @JacksonmMatt @cmoncap & W. Brian Arthur today...
"I think we have to be aware that we're not just discussing financial systems. We are discussing the future of the stability of the planet."

- David Krakauer
on #Complexity #Economics
"What is the #economy? I would argue that it doesn't exist in the physical world. It is a product of our #imagination. It is made out of #ideas. It does have an effect on the physical world. But the imagined order that we have is not succeeding."

New #DailyLoonshot - thread: S-type, P-type, and the story of the @BurgerKing "Whopper Detour" 👇
/1
A P-type #loonshot is a crazy product or technology no one thinks will work (transistor, digital camera, etc.)

S-type is a crazy strategy no one thinks will work. E.g. opening a retail store far from big cities, where there's no foot traffic (Walmart). /2
It matters because like batters in baseball, leaders and innovators tend to favor one over the other. And just like in baseball, we can become so much more powerful if we learn how to switch hit. /3

Innovative companies are known to generate higher annual total shareholder returns as compared to their peers who are not focused on innovation as a strategy for future business growth

Global innovation trends reveal that innovation is among top 3 priorities for industry leaders
One challenge faced by leadership teams to promote #innovation initiatives include excess action by individual innovators, without a uniform direction.

This leads to various disconnected efforts that fail to generate desired results

#management #leadership #strategy #tech
Effective leaders aim at innovation with a clear strategy by defining role of each team member.

This results in creation of various internal innovative vehicles for the organization that contributes to the target portfolio by generating valuable tangible and intangible assets

#Academy2019 @AAN_Nursing Keynote on #belonging: Dr. @LisaColemanPhD explains #Diversity (in the room), #Inclusion (being asked to dance), & #Equity (intentional reflection on history & power), & #Belonging: you can disagree about something & you’re still in the group
Dr. @LisaColemanPhD: You can’t have excellence in #innovation *without* #diversity, #inclusion, #equity *AND* #Belonging

#Academy2019
Dr. Lin Zhan to Dr. @LisaColemanPhD: How do #nurseleaders acknowledge #implicitbias? Dr. Coleman explains we all have implicit bias. On #microaggressions: Even well-intended words can do harm. #Leaders must assess their own biases AND how they’re operationalized in their orgs.

I’ve been through today’s @CareQualityComm #StateOfCare report so you don’t miss the bits that matter but don’t make the headlines. Here’s a link to the report.
cqc.org.uk/publications/m…
Buckle up for my annual thread. 1/11 Front cover of CQC report on the state of health care and adult social care in England 2018/19.
2/11 #StateOfCare identifies the challenges faced by people with multiple needs and describes people and their families needing to chase services to get the right care. @RichmondGroup14 work on multiple conditions has also found people feeling exhausted and overwhelmed. Page 15 of CQC report.Page 18 of CQC report.
3/11 #StateOfCare shares a story from @RichmondGroup14 member @age_uk that shows how people can sometimes be viewed by professionals with a narrow focus, especially outside obvious moments of transition. Page 19 of CQC report.

1) So you get a copy of your medical records & dive in, reading line by line, trying to make sense of your new lung #cancer diagnosis.

“Wait a second, this doesn’t sound right. This is a mistake. I don’t have a history of a heart condition & I don’t smoke cigarettes.
#PtExp
2) You call your oncologist’s office to report the mistakes you found & ask to have it updated. You are told to write down the correction & fax it to the office. You do exactly that.
#PtExp #addendum #EHR
3) At your next follow up appt a month later, you ask the dr if your record was updated & the correction was made.

With brand new epilogue: Dear Greta.

#climate #climatechange ideafaktory.com/cannibal/
#ClimateChange thread

The most sober & pragmatic analysis I've seen is from Citi, showing the benefits of clean solutions outweigh costs.

But that's the business side.

Sadly, the political rhetoric is now unhinged, exaggerated, irresponsible hysteria.

theguardian.com/environment/cl…
1) Greta says "people are dying". Not exactly. Deaths from natural disasters have plummeted over past 100 years.

2) Greta says capitalism is the problem when its driven down pollution by subbing gas for oil/coal, driven innovation lowering solar, wind, battery & other alt costs.

The New Zealand Government invited the public to comment on the Venture Capital Fund Bill, so I made a submission: zmint.co

#nzpol #VentureCapital #Innovation #Entrepreneurship #GrowthHacking #SocialEnterprise
The Ākina Foundation also made a submission, calling for 10% of the fund to go into impact investment (I called it social enterprises). They also see investment readiness as an issue.

No time to read @ITIFdc report of UK clean #energy #innovation performance but want to know how the UK performed?

www2.itif.org/2019-global-en…

@beisgovuk @ScotGovEnergy @EnergySysCat @theCCCuk
@ITIFdc @beisgovuk @ScotGovEnergy @EnergySysCat @theCCCuk UK just makes top 10, performing best on 'social legitimation' (i.e. making clean energy more acceptable).

Does well too on 'option generation' (i.e. scale & diversity of clean energy RD&D funding).

Poorest on 'scale-up' (i.e. later stage demonstration & commercialisation).
@ITIFdc @beisgovuk @ScotGovEnergy @EnergySysCat @theCCCuk UK has done extremely well on growing its RD&D spend, ranking 1st of all the @MICleanEnergyRD countries. Kudos to @beisgovuk and its Industrial Strategy spending, which I imagine has been the primary driver.
