The recent #BalasoreTrainTragedy in #Odisha has shocked & saddened many people,including those who have served in senior operational positions in the #IndianRailways.
Some feedback we received:

One retired senior board officer said, "I am ashamed of what happened..
@RailMinIndia ImageImageImageImage
We had made so much progress in reducing accidents in recent years, but it seems like we have let our guard down. We need to get back to basics & focus on safety."

Another retired officer said, “Last major accident was in MaldaDivn ERly in Jan 2022.The #Malda derailment showed..…
that there were cracks in our strategy. We need to be more vigilant & make sure that all safety procedures are followed. Malda happened becoz basics of planning were ignored-while extending run of electric loco, neither Divn, nor Zone nor RlyBd ensured that locomotives will not..

#russian #disinformation #biolabs Image
‘As they highlighted the #US colleagues of #PolitiFact, already in March 2022 the #Pentagon had communicated more or less the same things,
adding that about 200 million dollars had been invested in #Ukraine in supporting "46 #laboratories, health facilities and diagnostic sites", improving the country's "#biological #safety".’…

#Safety, #compliance, and efficiency are crucial for businesses in high-risk industries like #drilling. The International Association of Drilling Contractors has reported a concerning increase in lost-time incidents and fatalities in the industry in the past two years. #drilling Image
To combat this alarming trend, it's time for #drillingcontractors to adopt more effective EHS processes. Many still rely on paper-based systems that are inefficient, prone to errors, and take up valuable time. #EHS #digitalEHS
The challenges of paper-based EHS processes include managing and tracking safety data, complying with regulations, and reporting incidents on time. These issues can lead to increased risk and decreased safety performance. #EHSchallenges

@0LNetwork's strategy is to stay as close as possible to the #Libra/#Diem code base, rather than fragmenting #technology products. This approach is more efficient on resources and best for the wider open-source #ecosystem these #tools extend and depend upon
#0LNetwork #Move Image
The #forking strategy is simple in concept: take the unmodified #Diem code, import it into the 0L, and add layers of features. But it's not that simple in execution
They has to insert many changes in main places of the diem-core code for the #0L layers and side-cars to work
What they inherited from #Libra/#Diem is a spaceship on all accounts. There are #engineering breakthroughs #throughout the project, and the #architecture is sensibly designed and expertly assembled

⭐️Indian Women in Digital Spaces: Does Online Anonymity Guarantee Safety?
1. The central thought is that Anonymity has always been associated with women for most of history, so much so that a grant program named ‘Anonymous was a Woman Award’ was initiated by a New York artist in 1996.
2. Anonymous Was A Woman is an unrestricted grant of $25,000 that enables women artists, over 40 years of age and at a significant juncture in their lives or careers, to continue to grow and pursue their work.

History is written by the winners, which is why #Luddite is a slur meaning "technophobe" and not a badge of honor meaning, "Person who goes beyond asking what technology does, to asking who it does it *for* and who it does it *to*."… 1/

Luddites weren't anti-machine activists, they were pro-#worker advocates, who believed that the spoils of automation shouldn't automatically be allocated to the bosses who skimmed the profits from their #labor and spent them on machines that put them out of a job. 3/

🧵NEW: Reporting shows continued deceptive messaging of Eliza Bleu, Ella Irwin, and Elon Musk re: CSAM on Twitter.

CSAM "persisted on the platform, including widely circulated material that the authorities consider the easiest to detect and eliminate."
Staff on Twitter responsible for detection/removal of Child Sexual Abuse Material have quit or been fired.

AND ALSO Twitter STOP PAYING FOR DETECTION SOFTWARE that is KEY to its detection and elimination from the platform.

"All the while, people on dark-web forums discuss how Twitter remains a platform where they can EASILY FIND the material while AVOIDING DETECTION, according to transcripts of those forums from an anti-abuse group that monitors.."

#Incident reporting should follow & precede #riskmanagement?
The two are slightly different areas of specialization
in the office environment.
It is akin to the debate between #reliability and #safety.
Both are contrasting concepts in organizational #resilience studies.
They are certain leading businesses including big banks that have separated incident reporting desks from risk management co-ordination cells.
Actually, incidents are events which require an eye and a taxonomy for recognition.
Coding outcome events into loss database is essential
The most difficult area in financial risk management was the coding of operational risk incidents or potential events having adverse negative probabilistic outcomes, which can yield material quantifiable losses in the financial statements.

@euro writes (vital thread) to warn us that

1/ EU regulations are not perfect but are not ‘red tape’ either. They improve the quality of our everyday lives by protecting our rights as #workers and #consumers, our #environment and #wildlife and the quality of the #food we eat.
Please, read on 2/ to get more detail on the #REUL Bill (Retained EU Law)
I personally experienced that EU decisions were all scrutinised by UK Parliamentary Committees before they became law!…
2/ These EU laws were created with the support of the governments of all the political parties when the UK was in the EU.
EU laws – that the Government now wants to dismantle – protect us in the workplace. They guarantee our paid holidays, reduce the gender pay gap and protect

#SanDiego #Housing Commissioner/Vice Chair #RyanClumpner seems to be in a mood today
Let's cheer him up by reviewing accomplishments of his agency, shall we?
Of the 1566 people leaving shelters
- 78% did NOT report (920) or are back on the street (300)
Way to be accountable Ryan! Source:
How much did #CityofSanDiego pay for #AlphaProjectSD shelters that #HousingCommission show have a 78% failure rate, and how long do people stay?
- $1.8 million over past year (at least)
- 1373 households
- Avg. stay: 57 days
- Avg. stay for actual permanent #housing: 109 days
Last year I submitted a #PublicRecord request re:#AlphaProjectSD contracts w/#CityofSanDiego
The request is still open
-1000s of documents have been shared, many showing problems:
Millions in public $$ received
People exposed to dirty water & illnesses: #COVID & #tuberculosis

Update/background on this situation:
@janis_wilds helped an older #disabled #unhoused woman discharged from a hospital emergency room to the streets of #SanDiego with no place to recuperate.
She had been living (?) on a bus stop bench since CHRISTMAS!
This is all too common
Fortunately: Janis coordinated w/@Housing4Hmless to find a hotel room until Tuesday BUT- it was not an #ADA room.
The woman's wheelchair could not go into the bathroom, so a bedside commode was essential for her dignity & health.
Many thanks to friends at #JewishFamilyOrg for providing exactly what this woman needs: A commode that allows her to transfer from a wheelchair.
I share this as a reminder: Providing shelter/hotel rooms for PEH w/disabilities is only one step in keeping them safe & healthy

Remember when @sullivanms provided hot drinks to people kicked out of #SanDiego inclement weather shelters at 5AM?
FYI: #AlphaProjectSD does "not aim at making #homelessness easier, or less costly, or more tolerable"

Alpha staff does this to make lives even harder for #PEH
#AlphaProjectSD gets millions in taxpayer $$ to provide #homelessness shelter & services- yet has failed to provide clean restrooms & or safe drinking water
Despite record rainfall: they don't provide more inclement weather shelters

Last year I submitted a #PublicRecord request re:#AlphaProjectSD contracts w/#CityofSanDiego

1) When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth,
2) the separate and equal station to which the Laws of #Nature and of Nature's #God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
3) We hold these #truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are #Life, #Liberty and the pursuit of #Happiness.

Fare il medico… c’è chi dice che è una vocazione e lo è sicuramente, ma è altrettanto certo che al giorno d’oggi è una sfida, soprattutto in contesti come la guardia medica! È una sfida, perché non è possibile che un medico nell’esercizio delle proprie funzioni venga aggredito

Qué es #CommotioCordis ó contusión del miocardio🫀?

R:👉🏻Es el paro al corazón como resultado de un golpe en cierto lugar y momento q interrumpe (arritmia) el ritmo cardiaco…

Generalmente ocurre en atletas pero puede también suceder en contextos cotidianos


El registro americano de Commotio Cordis encontró q la mayoría de las veces sucede por golpe durante deporte 53% competitivo ó 24% recreativo:🥊🥋🏒🏈⚾️🏉

Y 23% en actividades cotidianas como:

-“remedio”para el hipo
-violencia doméstica
-bola de nieve…

Generalmente se ha registrado en hombres entre 10-18 años!

…Aunq se cree q los casos y muertes están subreportados, se registran entre 15-25 muertes por Commotio Cordis en Estados Unidos al año,…🥲

🙏🏻La tasa de supervivencia es de 58%…y depende de una atención inmediata!
