#WildfireFire conducive conditions are likely to get extremely dangerous next week in #Ontario and western #Quebec. A short thread 1/n
First, conditions are already very dry, especially in western Quebec. Some rain in the last couple of days has improved the conditions but still, it is dryer than normal following two-months of much below average precipitations in Quebec 2/...
Beginning next week, both the Canadian and American models are forecasting widespread heat in Ontario and western Quebec. The extent and intensity of this heat depends on the models but still, forecast are jaw-dropping 3/...

ABRO HILO. Los lobos de Isle Royale.
Cuando hice mi reciente crónica sobre la fauna de los Grandes Lagos, despertó cierto interés la parte en la que hablé de los lobos de Isle Royale. Por eso en este hilo voy a ampliar la información sobre los lobos más famosos del #mundo
Isle Royale es la segunda mayor isla de los Grandes Lagos, situada en el Lago Superior en territorio de los #EEUU pero frente a la costa canadiense de #Ontario, de la que la separa un corto brazo de lago. Está declarada Parque Nacional desde 1940.
Durante los inviernos más duros, la isla queda unida al continente mediante un puente de agua congelada, por lo que la fauna de tierra firme puede pasar entonces a la isla, como sucedió en 1900 cuando los alces se establecieron en Isle Royale procedentes de Ontario.

MEGAThread on Doug Ford Re: Social Assistance, Budget & Hypocrisy

May 15th 2020, Ford was asked if he'd top up disability assistance during the crisis, as many vulnerable folks are struggling to survive this crisis on the current, below poverty line amount given. His response:
However, on April 17th 2020 Doug Ford made this statement and committed that "I won't spare one penny to make sure that happens"
(Regarding the priority to "ensure the health & well-being of the people of Ontario"
In March, Ontario gave funding to foodbanks & non profits. That was their bandaid for the almost 1mill vulnerable folks on social assistance: giving charities funds so that those at high risk right now must go out & beg at an already overwhelmed foodbank.

In UK/Wales, occupations w/ increased risk of COVID-death:

NOT nurses, doctors

INSTEAD:
taxi, bus, coach drivers, chauffeurs
security guards
nursing assistants, care workers
admin & secretaries
chefs
sales, retail assistants
construction, process, plant & machine operations
Crap. I meant to link to the person whose tweet drew my attention to this, but I can't find him now. Here's the UK/Wales Office for National Statistics site.

Thinking of the reports of COVID19 deaths in Toronto taxi drivers right now.

Thread: Dump bad equations. They lead to bad decisions.

On May 10, Mr. @BorisJohnson proposed a simple equation to determine #COVID Alert Level. He then explained how the reopening policy could be shaped based on this "Threat Level".



1/
In this thread, I will explain why this equation is not only wrong, but is also completely unnecessary — especially when we have clear alternative measures that can guide #COVID policies and decisions.

* Fast forward to tweet # 11 if you already know Dimensional Analysis.

2/
One of the first subjects in physics is "Dimensional Analysis". It needs to be emphasized more in high school and college physics courses.

See this @wikipedia article for a technical description:

Open Letter to Doug Ford Premier of Ontario @fordnation
You have done a stellar job of managing the current medical crisis we are all going through in #Ontario. You have been sober and serious when needed and shown optimism when appropriate. This has changed many voter's
opinion of you. You have gone from the "buck a beer" frat guy to a serious and respected leader. I fear you now risk all this if you do not follow the scientists and doctors who have been leading us under your stewardship. They have made it clear that we need 14 days of less than
200 new #COVID19 cases in #Ontario before we open things up. We have all sacrificed what we so recently took for granted to #FlattenTheCurve and give our brave women and men of healthcare a chance to prepare for this pandemic. Please do not undo all this work and open to quickly

Deloitte, 2017: "Operations will cease to be delivered by humans."

Deloitte: The #Future of Operations, Deloitte Global Impact Report, Nov 13 2017

#FourthIndustrialRevolution
#ControlledDemolition

#Covid19 is the conduit to the #4IR now in full motion. As people come to terms w/ what is being forced upon humanity, we will soon regret that we did not unite to oppose to draconian lockdowns/expanding surveillance that will serve to protect/insulate ruling classes from revolt.
#UBI (universal basic income) is a tool designed by the rich to stave off #Molotov cocktails - while at the same time enriching themselves even further. The ruling class knows full well what they are unleashing - but the citizenry does not.

Thread: Comparing the emergency response for vulnerable folks from British Columbia vs Ontario.

I want you to read this thread, then try to tell me that Ford is doing a "good job" for vulnerable Ontarians.

First, let's compare the provincial crisis response to homeless...
In Ontario, they still have the Safe Streets Act which police enforce. This act, if continued to be enforced, will cost lives of homeless people due to them needing to go to more dangerous lengths to not be seen by the police. theconversation.com/ontarios-safe-…
In Ontaro, social programs have been cut, the foodbank is limited to 1 trip per month, ppl are still expected to live on the streets. They opened a respite centre in Ottawa to shower, not to stay at. cbc.ca/news/canada/ot…

NEW: Our 4/22 model release involves updated estimates for previously included locations in the US and Europe, and a more in-depth examination of the results.

We also have #COVID19 predictions for Puerto Rico and by province in Canada.

🆕healthdata.org/covid/updates

(Thread)
As we add new locations to our production pipeline, we will focus on producing estimates for locations that have reported a minimum of 50 cumulative deaths to date.
For example, in today’s release we show results for four Canadian provinces (Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario, and Quebec) that have met the threshold, but not for other provinces. ➡️covid19.healthdata.org/projections

DOCTORS OF #ONTARIO🚨🩺
Physicians in outpatient clinics (family MDs, specialists) have been severely affected by #COVID19, w/ decreased pt volumes & shift to virtual care. However, we are waiting for @ONThealth+@celliottability to compensate us fairly for our work. (Thread 1/12)
Despite implementation of telephone billing codes, they’re not expected to be processed by @ONTHealth until June, which means MD’s don’t get paid for work done in March-June 2020 until July. This is unacceptable & inappropriate. (2/12) cbc.ca/amp/1.5532209#…
.@OntariosDoctors continue to manage acute/urgent cases & prevent pts from ending up in overwhelmed ERs. We still immunize babies, care for pregnant women, perform essential assessments in person & virtually. The tele codes also aren’t equivalent to regular billing codes. (3/12)

To my surprise I have not seen any public criticism of the recent Emergency Order in #Ontario that permits virtual signing of Wills & POAs. The more I think about it, the more concerned I am. So here is a thread of what’s been keeping me up @ night. But first, some context. 1/22
I don’t draft Wills and rarely draft POAs. I see POAs in action (or lack thereof) when there are consent/capacity issues. I have serious concerns about undue influence and capacity and believe we must continue to be mindful of these issues in this new physically distant world.
The new process looks like this: Grantor signs on video-call, delivers signed docs to each witness; witnesses sign on video-conference; 2nd witness may return originals to grantor. So 2-3 Zooms and the document gets sent around 1-3x. Annoying, but not so bad, right? Think again
