👇🏻 A great example of the manipulation of language to gain access to children. #dragqueen #storytelling #children #safeguarding #SafetyFirst
What is a "rich experience"? I do believe they are 'story telling'. What does "interactive" mean? An 'understanding of different communities' is used to manipulate, as is 'can reduce inequality'. A healthy positive start in life for children is one withOUT sexualization
Note how they use language & words to make the audience believe that teaching them about drag, etc. gives children a 'positive start' in life. This is manipulation. Exposing children to drag is going to 'reduce inequality' or normalise drag? #linguistics #questions #manipulation

Are you an #empath or highly #sensitive #HSP like me? Good advice on how to make your empathetic state a positive in life when often we feel pressure to “not be so sensitive”. Embrace your empathy and make sensitivity a super strength - Psychologies UK apple.news/Ahd82EI2ETyeRf…
I don’t often speak about myself as an #empath. I know people wonder how I pick up someone else’s thoughts, feelings, next actions. I just usually say I’m good at strategising or “just put the signs together”.
But being #empathetic #HSP takes a toll. It’s stressful picking up and carrying other peoples #feelings and #moods. And being #sensitive is often not seen as a positive trait in our society. So I used to try and hide it.

Finally, the #GoldacreReview is published! (During Parliamentary Easter holidays, mid-ping-pong on the #HealthAndCareBill...)

It's 221 pages - each PDF page is a double page spread - so this could be a lo-o-o-ong [Thread].

Here goes...
First point to note, in the Terms of Reference (p5), is that this is about "access to #NHSdata by #researchers, #commissioners, and #innovators" - i.e. #Planning and #CommercialReUse - so it is directly relevant to the operation of millions of people's #NationalDataOptOuts... Terms of reference for the review  1. How do we facilitate a
"185 wide-ranging recommendations for us to explore", says @sajidjavid (p6). Gulp! Time for some coffee...

"systems that ensure #underrepresented groups are well represented" may (partly) refer to this "landmark review", which got off to a slow start:

gov.uk/government/new… The far-reaching independent review into potential ethnic bi

*sigh*

Again with the "#anonymised" fig leaf*?!

Anyone not getting that the NHS patients' data that's being shared is still #PersonalData, NOT #anonymous, should read:

1) The law or, at the very least, the regulator's explanation: ico.org.uk/for-organisati…

2) The contracts...
...which literally put in writing that companies ARE getting access to "#Sensitive #PersonalData". See, e.g. p48 of the @faculty_ai contract: cdn-prod.opendemocracy.net/media/document… - and just think for a moment how programmes like, e.g. #TestandTrace could work *without* identifiable data.
3) If (1)'s too abstract, maybe try the worked examples under "Misunderstanding the 'birthday attack'" in this piece we wrote in 2015:
medconfidential.org/2015/medconfid… - which are just as true and relevant in 2020.

Plus, as of May 2018, it's the law of course; see (1) again.
