#BigTech surveillance gone wild...

Will 🇨🇳 eventually control your #social #score/social credit?

AKA the

“AI Manhattan Project.”
“When people think of surveillance they usually think of country surveillance, this is planetary surveillance of all information that is available on the surface web and also any sources that it can get in the deep web..."

"So think of the Library of Alexandria of all available websites that you can search for and all that data gets fused together and a decision-making process gets formed because of that. This is essentially what the Google DeepMind project is all about.”

WHAT WOULD A NEW DÉTENTE LOOK LIKE?

What if the USA, the UK & other western powers took the outstretched hands of Russia & China?

What are the advantages & are there are any dangers in doing that?

How would this change alter our world?

#USA #China #Russia #Détente
WHAT WOULD A NEW DÉTENTE LOOK LIKE?

In the early Seventies Richard Nixon significantly improved relations with China.

In the late Eighties relations between Russia & the West warmed after decades of the Cold War.

Only the warmongers & ultra-suspicious didn’t feel safer.
WHAT WOULD A NEW DÉTENTE LOOK LIKE?

Currently the world is on a dangerous & divisive path.

Dangerous due to the risk of an accidental conflict due to decreasing understanding & lessening trust.

Divisive just at the moment when we most need to work together.

The #China/ #SinoAfrica containment narrative is not useful for analyzing #Japan-#Africa development relations. Using a tug-of-war language to paint a🇨🇳-🇯🇵 standoff shows how much the🇺🇸- 🇨🇳rivalry colors #Africa's partnerships. 🇯🇵's #TICAD7 is a very different product from #FOCAC
#TICAD started in 1993, many moons before #FOCAC. #Japan did get inspired by #China's forum model and changed from meeting every 5 years to now every 3. TICAD also recently started alternating between #Japan and an #Africa|n hosts (like FOCAC) but
Using a zero-sum narrative doesn't work simply because there's a lot of room for #TICAD, #FOCAC, #India, #Russia.. What it shows tho is that the Forum Model is a favored #diplomacy w/ #Africa platform. Hosting public officials, organizing banquets, seminars, building connections

Alors que l'#Amazonie est en feu, on voudrait vous parler d'un géant distributeur, @amazon (lui ne brûle pas bien au contraire).

Le plus important distributeur au monde. Un énorme site où on peu trouver tout et n'importe quoi à des prix compressés, ça donne envie non ?
Amazon c'est bien plus que des livres ou de l'électroménager !

En plus du fameux site marchand, la firme accumule les services et multiplie les secteurs d'activités.
Liseuses, Cloud, IA, assistant Alexa, streaming vidéo Prime, etc.
Et tout ça, ça rapporte du fric ! 💸💸💸

178 milliards (M) d'$ de chiffre d'affaires annuel, 3M$ de bénéfices.
Son PDG, @JeffBezos (hey salut toi 😏) est la première fortune mondiale avec 154M de $.

Des chiffres que le commun des mortels (nous 😅) peine à imaginer...

Interpersonal interactions play a major role in quality of #life. People strive for positive interactions yet they can be upsetting.

Becoming aware of what one wishes to #experience interpersonally is a great first step to feeling:

#loved
respected
understood
In-control
#Happy
Next, try and become aware of what you did and said as well as what the other person did or said in response.

Notice the responses of yourself and the other person. Is what you wished for what happened? If not, maybe there is a pattern that can explain recurrent negativity.
To figure out what the wish guiding your patterns of relating to others might be, consider the response of the other person. Were they:
Antagonistic
Controlling
Detaching
Subservient
Sometimes responses of others can inform our awareness of our unconscious or #implicit motives.

Fraser contends with liberal feminism’s troubling convergence with #capitalism, and the ways in which #feminism can provide a veneer of liberation for a system of relentless #exploitation@DissentMagdissentmagazine.org/article/nancy-…
The gendered separation of #social reproduction from #economic production constitutes the principal institutional basis for women’s subordination in #capitalist societies.
When a society simultaneously withdraws public support for social reproduction and conscripts the chief providers of it into long and grueling hours of paid work, it depletes the very social capacities on which it depends. The result is a “crisis of care”

Introducing my #the100dayproject inspired by @QMUNITY and my fellow #ADE @Sharon_Drummond. 100 days, 100 GIFs, 100 queer terms to educate and connect our community and allies. All GIFs created with #AppleKeynote and will be compiled on @GIPHY : giphy.com/channel/joepau… @AppleEDU
Day 1: QUEER - widely used among the community to refer to the spectrum of non-heterosexual +/ non-cisgender ppl as a shorthand. Important - this is RECLAIMED language that was/is still used as a hate term. #pride #education @QMUNITY @sogiUBC Follow along ———> #100daysofQueer
DAY 2: HETERONORMATIVE - social roles & structures that reinforce idea that heterosexuality is the presumed norm and is superior to other sexual orientations. #pride #education #sogi #humanrights @QMUNITY @sogiUBC @HRC

We've just released the final report by @Alston_UNSR, the UN Special Rapporteur on extreme #poverty, on his visit to the #UK. The report is available here: undocs.org/A/HRC/41/39/Ad…. A few key takeaways:
Some have asked me why a UN expert on #poverty would visit the #UK. Unfortunately, although the UK is the world’s 5th largest economy, 14 million are in poverty, child poverty is rising & predicted to reach 40% by 2021, homelessness is up 60%, and food bank use has skyrocketed.
To understand #poverty in the #UK, you have to look at the massive disinvestment in social support since 2010: the end of a centralized social fund, changes to the ways benefits are capped & calculated that substantially reduce their value, the decimation of civil legal aid, etc.

Thread. Long: I'm feeling a profound sadness. A deep sadness. One that is inhabiting my very core. Why? I've lived long enough to know what life was like before women won their necessary & long overdue rights. Trust me when I say that April 17, 1982 was a day filled with
boundless joy for women all over #Canada. Our rights were enshrined into our Charter of Rights & Freedoms on that day. It was a very long road from being legally considered “persons” to finally being treated – at least on paper – as equals under the law.

Now I'm seeing our very
hard won rights under attack. Particularly our right to a safe, medical abortion. What's stunning about the anti abortion laws being passed in states like #Alabama is the total lack of understanding about why an abortion is performed. The medical reasons include problems with the

Mega Thread of Opinion (1 of 52)

My take on #Election2019, is one that will surprise all #Canadians who will take the #time to read past this #headline. It will be a #long #series of #tweets that will be #purely #honest & straight to the #point.
This #series of tweets will contain #jabs at #voters, the #media & our #political #parties & they are #jabs, that in my own #opinion are #merited. Agree or don’t agree, I won’t care, but it needs to be said to ease my conscience in the lead up to our election!
In 2015, Canada’s #media, declared that #Trudeau & .@liberal_party outflanked the @NDP on leftist policies & for the 1st time in recent history the media supported large deficits & destruction of our country’s finances over a more balanced approach. Let’s stop here for a sec.

This is a great, thought-provoking speech by #Draghi, on European sovereignty. Though I disagree with some parts, the final part on “rules vs. institutions” is excellent. A thread. ecb.europa.eu/press/key/date…
Draghi starts out with the alleged conflict between EU membership and #sovereignty, which is crucial to understand the populism of #Brexit, Le Pen et al. He says: no conflict at all, to the contrary.
“True #sovereignty is reflected not in the power of making laws – as a legal definition would have it – but in the ability to control #outcomes … The ability to make independent decisions does not guarantee countries such control,” says Draghi.

This #ManufactureOfDoubt script has been used by the #formulaindustry from the very beginning. You can see it from 19th century advertisements through today. The script is a #social one, exactly as @prof_goldberg says - and where #culturalideologies & #politicaleconomy intersect.
Perfect for some #anthropological analysis. In case of #formulamarketing, the social script for #ManufactureofDoubt exploits & enhances existing #culturalideologies of anxiety abt #breastfeeding which have been around since late 19th cent among white, upper class women & spread
#Biomedicalization of #childbirth & #infantfeeding played a key part in deepening these anxieties & facilitated the #normalization of #infantformula by mid 20th cent, esp via medical experts & hospital practices that entailed routine separation & scheduled feeding

Caro ministro @luigidimaio dedico a lei e al #GovernoDelCambiamento queste mie riflessioni sulla #povertà.
Questa parola, magica come #dignità , tanto cara a lei e ai Vs. sostenitori.
Che avete deciso di propagandare attraverso lanci #social, balconate e che secondo
Voi con un #decreto - i cui effetti sul mercato del #lavoro saranno dirompenti ma in senso negativo - potevate eliminarla.
Mi spiace darle questa brutta notizia, ma né lei né nessun altro politico in questa terra, potrà abolire o eliminare la povertà.
Perché purtroppo la smania
protagonismo e l’ignoranza in materia economica vi porta a fare scelte irrazionali.
La povertà non è solo un problema economico, tutt’altro, è principalmente un problema culturale.
Un paese ignorante è un paese tendenzialmente povero - che poi fa comodo a chi lo governa - perché

Let's discuss this thread in this week's #GEMChats for #entrepreneurs. What are some common mistakes that #startups, especially #fashion startups make that makes them less viable?
Let's breakdown the mistakes into sections of a business. These sections can take form within the Operational, Connectivity and Knowledge aspect of the #startup business. #entrepreneurship #womenentrepreneur

So let's discuss this. Feel free to mention us and let's talk!
Firstly, Knowledge.

Studies have found that 3 out of 4 #startups fail. Wall Street Journal (@WSJ) reported that fashion is one of the most difficult industries.

The lack of knowledge prior to starting and while running a #fashion startup can be a costly mistake.

There's far too much #bull being rattled around this ref. proposal. Wake up #Ireland folks; yes, we need to amend wording to reflect reality, ensure equality of responsibility is norm; no, it would be terminally stupid to throw it all out altogether,reduce legal standing of all/1
2/ from potentially exploitative employers' points of view. Amendment should not mean rescinding basic tenets on protecting #economic position of wo/men w children & of childrens' rights to home & care there, it should mean updating in line with values & mores of us now & ongoing
3/ See the shiiiiit-stirrrrring for what it is: #brexit deflector #Border deflector #EU agreement deflector #criminalcase going down deflector #Referendum #Women of #Ireland you're way brighter than that, get a grip. And trolls can just bot off with themselves. Hi @TransparentRef

Just got to Davos. Ready to fill the leadership vacuum with big ideas. My focus will be on privilege and women. Only going to #womanels #methree. Also, my alligator-skin boots got snow on them, anyone have a blow drier or an FT I can use to dry them off?
Thread 1/n: Small ideas feel big when I'm in my Gulfstream, so here it goes: We have to innovate on innovation. The 7th industrial revolution disrupts AND displaces. Artificial intelligence and blockchain can only solve resurgent populism with #compassion.
2/n We elites are critical to making this debate glocalized. Thought leadership also involves thought stewardship. Communities form the core of our economies. Blue collar workers must be re-conceived as #newcollar workers. Code is key.
