How does a city's trauma system come together to both prepare for the expected surge of the #COVIDー19 #pandemic & manage the ongoing #epidemic of #gunviolence & other trauma?

Through a great collaborative effort, we published the #Philadelphia experience in @JTraumAcuteSurg
2/

The full paper is published ahead of print here: journals.lww.com/jtrauma/Citati…

It represents the importance of #teamwork in ensuring a robust, rapid, coordinated effort to manage an evolving threat
3/

Our publication timing coincides with a brutal #July4th weekend where #Philadelphia saw over 30 people shot including several children

But how did the #pandemic and #socialdistancing mandate affect trauma volume in our centers?

1/n Some reflections on #BAME inequality #covid19 and #NHSBirthday. Today is the 72nd birthday of the #NHS - founded upon a set of principles that we hold dear of universal access to healthcare, free at the point of delivery at a time when the nation was impoverished due to war
2/n A few weeks earlier, the Empire #Windrush arrived in the UK bringing the first of the “windrush generation” to help rebuild Britain, including the new #NHS. Things were not quite as promised for them. bbc.co.uk/programmes/m00… #Covid19 #NHSBirthday #BAME
3/n I had the privilege of meeting around 100 #windrush nurses in #Leeds with the @BHILeeds and heard fantastic stories of their work building the #NHS, their pride in doing so and the struggles they had endured #NHSBirthday #BAME #Covid19

The Theriault verdict & courts analysis is deeply dissatisfying from a critical race lens and here are *some* reasons why: 1/

#herefordafonte
Race features at the *start* of the verdict
It situates the case in a racial context & the court acknowledges race to uphold Dafonte’s credibility in some *brief* instances - tho he was not on trial /2
But race can’t just be a forethought, it must be part of the ongoing analysis, especially when this case is really about #racism & state/ police/ structural violence /3

#HelterSkelter - The madman, #CharlieManson himself would be so proud of all the racial unrest going on in our country today! He wanted a race war more than anything else and did all he could to get one started, including at least one murder connected to a drug deal, reportedly.
In just about every city in America today roving bands of predominantly young people are filling the streets shouting slogans like, "Black Lives Matter!!!" and spray painting a black fist with "BLM" lettered below its wrist. Is it just a fist? No, it is not. "The raised fist ...
...logo may represent unity or solidarity, generally with oppressed peoples. The black fist, also known as the Black Power fist is a logo generally associated with black nationalism and sometimes socialism. Its most widely known usage is by the Black Panther Party in the 1960s."

The Video Breakdown - #LaineyLui Confessional

(or how we can justify #LaineyGossip horrible past).

The bizarre McIntosh/DiAngelo lexicon used is intentionally meant to obfuscate and craft their own narrative.

I'll go through the video and translate what is going on...

At 1:00 pm the show goes on as "RECORDED EARLIER"

i.e. All Questions and #LaineyGossip Answers are carefully written out ahead of time.

This allows for many takes to get a perfectly crafted interview.

Melissa Grelo: At The Social, we do not shy away from difficult conversations....

[Holy crap, we have to do this because everyone now knows what a two-faced terrible person #LaineyGossip is.]

.#Juneteenth. I hope it becomes a federal holiday.
Its been celebrated in #Texas for 40 years today.
It is emancipation day.
A time for families to come together and remember hardships & be thankful for the #FREEDOM that we have.
It is a time of rememberance.
Freedom.
Family.

..Let’s have a conversation.
#Slavery, the buying & selling of other human beings, human trafficking, has been around for thousands of years.

The flag of freedom in the US is stained as much with the institution of slavery as with the blood of those who fought to abolish it.

..No one should own anyone else.
No one should force another human being against their will.

Regardless of race.

Today's episode of "What in the Caucasity?" should be the LAST. In 1795, an anthropologist sorting human skulls into groups liked a female skull from the Caucasus Mts best & reasoned that since Europeans were the best-looking people, all Europeans must be from the Caucasus Mts.
"Caucasian" isn't simply a racial term, it's a #racist term, selected in 1795 solely because the anthropologist who published the 1st classification of humans into biological "races" thought Europeans were the world's best-looking people.
latimes.com/opinion/story/…
"Caucasian" is widely used in medical research as a synonym for "white." C'mon #MedicalTwitter: you can fix this. discovermagazine.com/mind/stop-usin…

@JoeBiden Hey #JoeBiden, why don't you tell the #mayors and #governors of the #DemocraticParty to enforce #LawAndOrder

#Cuomo--governor of #NY State--#DeBlasio--mayor of #NYC--and others should be ashamed of themselves for allowing rampant #chaos to do material harm to their constituents
@JoeBiden This lackadaisical attitude combined with the now woefully obvious #lies spouted by almost every outlet of the #MainstreamMedia has pushed to become a FIRM supporter of the #TrumpAdministration.

I invite #Democrats and #Liberals to do their due diligence, #Trump acts on a plan
@JoeBiden Furthermore, the glaring weaknesses of the ineffective "#representatives" of the #DemocraticParty have shown us that most of these LINOs have only three approaches to any given problem:
1. Blame #Trump
2. Do Nothing
3. Use #Race to pretend they care about the #oppressed

Some excellent research has been published over the past few years on #policing and #militarisation that, given the recent events in the #US (and beyond), and subsequent debates on policing, deserves to be curated. A thread on some relevant scholarship from around the world. 1/n
Let's begin with the #US, where @Peterkraska has guided much of the contemporary research on the militarisation of civilian policing. Here's an article by Kapeller & Kraska on normalising police militarisation (a response to Garth den Heyer’s critique) tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.108… 2/n
den Heyer had challenged the works of Kraska and others who showed how policing was becoming more militarised in the #US. den Heyer argued instead that the establishment of SWAT/PPUs was ‘a natural progression’ in the evolution of American policing: tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.108…) 3/n

#GEORGEFLOYD Complaint 👇🤔

VERY DIFFERENT from what #MSM is depicting #DerekChauvin & chain of events.

Add a pinch of lies. Throw In Truth. Add a dash of #race & #popo brutality.Stir into a pot of #Covid1984 =

#Virustovioelence in days.
NONE OF THIS IS ORGANIC. 🤡🌏 #GeorgeFloyd

Did #GeorgeFloyd start to say he cannot breathe BEFORE he got #Chauvin's knee?

"While standing outside the car, Mr. Floyd began saying and repeating that he could not breathe."

#Race is a modern idea. Over the history of our world people did not classify other people by race or skin color. People were classified by their tribal names such as Persians, Greeks Jews, Saxons, Ethiopians, Egyptians ...etc.
The world was not divided by the terms negro or Caucasian. The world being divided by color was an idea from white supremacists in Europe after the Renaissance period.
Johann F. Blumenbach (1752 - 1840) a German anthropologist was the first to divide humanity on the basis of skin color. Much of the racial divide today is because of him. Racism was already around before he was born. He did not create racism.

Since pretty much everyone under quarantine has to use digitized primary sources, I thought it might be useful to point to #digitalarchives that *explicitly* acknowledge & caution users abt #archivalsilences in their contents, and describe their work to rectify them.

A thread.
1/ A note: Most people appreciate the easiness of online access to archival material, but tend to forget that all #digitization is selective.
2/ This means that what you see online is usually not “everything” that an institution holds abt a topic. It's important to understand the digitized together w the physical. Even if you can't access physical records now, you'll be able to better contextualize what you see online.

Baroness Warsi (the first Muslim to
attend Tory Cabinet meetings).

THEY, CLEARLY, KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE TORY PARTY, how #racist, #xenophobic, and nasty this #Conservative Party really is, they were right at the top of it, #BaronessWarsi ... the #Cons Party's most sen fig
Some key things to understand. Andrew Lansley (1st quote) was in the #Cameron Cabinet.
Baroness Warsi was Tory Chairman for this, Theresa May Government. Her comment, (2), was made LAST SUNDAY, her other quote (3) was from 2016.
She was so disturbed about the disgraceful attitudes she could see all the time that she decided to blow the lid on her own, rabid, Party. Her incendiary comment , in 2016, about there being "a simmering UNDERBELLY of #Islamophobia" came from her own experiences dealing with

Still processing the powerful discussion we had today in our #MA @ARUSociology session on #DecolonisingtheUniversity. A student shared her experiences of growing up in apartheid South Africa & feeling validated & 'seen' by the reading material. Became emotional as she talked
about how #apartheid affected her secondary & higher education in South Africa. Another shared his experiences of racism & racial abuse at his place of work in London, and how he'd envisioned a different kind of life in the UK when he migrated from Nigeria three years
ago. A third talked about being British in Zimbabwe and how her family had tried to convince her that the 'whites' were there to help the 'black people' and how she learnt to resist the 'civilising' narrative of #empire. A fourth discussed how her godfather rolled his eyes at her

SOOOO excited for the next installment of @ACRMS #RaceB4Race symposia @FolgerLibrary next week. FYI, this is ongoing series of symposia that centers the work of scholars of color. Thread of random thoughts about ways to go forward re #RaceB4Race and #ShakeRace.
warning, I kinda suck at threads, so grab yo coffee. /1.5
I have been thinking of things that need to be done to elevate this work/change the fields. Much of this is #ShakeRace specific, but some have broader applications. /2

Things they don’t tell you when you take up road cycling (a thread)

1- you will go numb in places you didn’t think were capable of such a thing. Girls, I’m talking intimate, boys, I’m talking Johnson.

#road #cycling #bike #ride #FitnessMotivation
2- you must fuel! Also, hitting the wall is called bonking. I’m a child. Every time someone says they’re bonking, that’s me laughing.

#roadbike #carbs #fuel #sweet
3- flies. Actually no, they’re not flies, they’re bullets. Today has been the day of the black beetle... oh my word do they hurt! If I hadn’t been wearing glasses, I’d be blind. Good protein though. Must have eaten thousands.
