On doing threads, it has been on my mind to do a thread on "maximising internships".
So let's do that, but before then, how is your weekend going?
Maximising internships- a thread. Image
1. Its 2022, and internships are ubiquitous, they have always existed but the recent wave of globalisation means you can intern with any company across the globe despite your location or course of study.
You can also map out a blossoming career through internships. How, you ask?
2. The following are a couple of helpful tips to maximise your internships.
Care about the company culture: The first thing you probably should study is the company culture.
You don't want to be saying "mr" or bowing/kneeling to greet someone in London or New York.

Anyone who did not see this coming does not understand #tech…(which includes people who design #AI).

“Important nuances were lost in translation when a rule commonly used to measure disparate impacts on protected groups in hiring was codified for easy-to-use tools…AI fairness”
Every time I see “our #AI will solve bias! Give us your #DEI budget!” win an #innovation award, accelerator, #hackathon I feel exhausted…

institutions would rather purchase ineffective & worsening-the-problem #tech than hard work of holding ppl accountable or change culture
And this is how #DEI - how currently approached - is ineffective & wastes money because a small amount of money is thrown at it with zero/minimal real hard work & unwillingness to be uncomfortable. Hence these bills:…

Reddit just killed the Social Justice In Action Subreddit
w/ over 94K members

basically @libsoftiktok in subreddit form

Reddit killed it "for violating Reddits rule against promoting hate"
#reddit @stillgray @JackPosobiec @TheQuartering #reddit @ReclaimTheNetHQ @LibertarianBlue
Arguably more significant,

Reddit also killed Tumblr In Action for the same reason,

which had over 472K members,

That sub was similar but covered mostly Tumblr & TikTok content

#Transgenderism reinforces gender-construct limitations, instead of challenging & deconstructing them, we solidify them by altering our gender to conform within the constructs, rather than altering, expanding, the constructs themselves
#trans "gender affirmation" is thought reform, where ideology is replacing biological, scientific realisms

where it's technocratic (the reassignment method) = tech replacing nature

it's probably the beginning of #transhumanism, where the method of bio-hacking is being perfected
this #transgender fad is a novel, *social movement* along with other things lately (Covid-pandemic is a political movement);
societal disruption where things seem similar to political phenomena we're familiar with, however, phenomena takes on a novel form where #tech is forefront

The Bayraktar TB-2

The TB-2 is a medium altitude long endurance unmanned combataerial vehicle (MALE UCAV), made in Turkey by Bayrack. (1/5)
#svagaiature #aviationlovers #UkraineInvasion #tech #Turkey #aviationdaily #AutonomousVehicles
The project began when the USA put an embargo on Turkey for UAV, due the fear of them being used to taget PKK groups inside and outside of the nation. Bayrack started developing a drone on the request of turkish government, and in 2014 the TB-12 made its maiden flight. (2/5)
A year later the weapon system had been already tested.
Many problems, regarding its components arose with time: the engine used, made in Austria, was only certified for civilian use; while parts of its imaging system and bomb rack was suspended... (3/5)

The only surviving model was captured by the Red Army in Manchuria in 1945 while in service with the Japan Army. How it arrived there from Germany is still a mystery (2/5)
The "tank" was used as a light reconnaissance vehicle with a one man crew. The armour was incredibly light, only five millimetres thick (3/5)

I think a lot about search every day, at one level there's search at the scale of Google, but at the other end there's search as a feature of a product, like searching a catalog of things to buy, or looking for a movie, etc. #tweet100 #tech #business #search A 🧵 about search.
Today I sat down to write and the first thing that came to mind is how difficult it is for companies to implement search well in their products. 1/
How many times have you searched for a product on a site that you thought "surely I'll find what I'm looking for'', only to realize that they don't handle synonyms well or that you can only do an exact match to find the item you want. 2/

Goed artikel over “#desinformatie” als reactie van het liberale establishment op de “psychische wond van 2016”, hoe daar een industrie omheen gebouwd is en een politiek probleem daarmee een wetenschappelijk probleem werd.…
‘If only the best minds, the most credentialed experts, could be given new authority to regulate the flow of “#fakenews”, the scales would fall from the eyes of the people and they would re-embrace the old order they had been tricked into despising.’… Image
‘The “anti #disinformation industry” has attracted massive investment from wealthy Democratic donors, #tech industry and cash-rich foundations. Hundreds of millions are sloshing around nonprofits, funding institutes at universities and extravagant conventions across the world.’ Image

Today marks the end of #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth, and we'd like to say a word on mental health in #tech.

51% of tech workers have been diagnosed with a mental health condition. By contrast, 19.1% of U.S. adults experience mental illness.

How can we change that? THREAD 🧵
Above all, we've got to open up about our struggles.

In this thread, 3 of our #founders talk openly about their mental health and tools that help them maintain it - tackling issues such as burnout, work-life balance and fear of failure.

Let's see what they have to say.
Founder & CEO of @KairnApp, @patbsci, recommends writing something down when it bothers you, daily.

"If it consistently bothers me 7 days in a row, then it means it’s not going away", she says. "Do something to change it, don’t let it eat away your energy."

#PSX losing charm every passing day? Activity at the bourse says so…

Long 🧵, hopefully an interesting one.

With #PSX being in existence for a long time now, 🇵🇰 hasn’t really seen a pick-up in #investor base – or say has been seeing a downfall.

While in we are aware of lack of interest in equities, I did some working on turnover in PSX. It’s a disappointing one (see chart below). #PSX is trading $45mn p/d on avg. these days – just a notch above what we used to trade back in the end of 1990s. Yes, let that sink in.

While this is saddening, this shd be questioned! #Tech has picked up which shd hv made investors’ access easier; businesses are making money, thus attract investors; both buy & sell side of capital markets hv grown in size. Yet why have we only fallen down rather grow?

🇷🇺 The T-62 🧵

The T-62 is a Soviet main battle tank that was first introduced in 1961. As a further development of the T-55 series #svagaiature #Tank #Russia #UkraineRussiaWar #t62 #UkraineUnderAttack #UkraineInvasion #tech #History #Thread #TankMuseum (1/13) Image
By the late 1950s, Soviet commanders realised that the T-55's 100 mm gun was incapable of penetrating the frontal armour of newer Western tanks, such as the Centurion and M48 Patton, with standard armour-piercing shells (2/13) Image
It was decided to up-gun the T-55 with a 115 mm smoothbore cannon, capable of firing APFSDS rounds. Experimental trials showed that the T-55 was inherently unsuited to mount the larger new cannon, and work therefore began on a new tank. (3/13)

As much as I love everyone FINALLY embracing remote work from anywhere, been in this game for a while now…

In 2016, I set out to build a globally competitive AI #startup from Sault Ste Marie, Canada.

Here’s how that went:
I had a vision.
I had a dream.

I wanted to revitalize a steeltown with tech.

I wanted to prove that you could build best-in-class tech from ANYWHERE in the world. In 2016.

I was proven wrong.
I was literally laughed at by Toronto investors.

Most Waterloo investors didn’t believe my dreams could be possible up “North”.

I ultimately determined that local Soo investors would have been more likely to fund a cupcake shop than deep tech AI; despite endless attempts.

Rejection hurts. There's no denying it.

But just because your business pitch was rejected by a venture capitalist (VC) doesn't mean that your startup is doomed.

In fact, getting rejected can be a good thing. It can help you learn, grow, and become a stronger entrepreneur.

Here are three things to do when your business pitch is rejected by a VC:

1. Don't take it personally

It's easy to take rejection personally, but it's important to remember that it's not about you as a person. It's about your business pitch.
Maybe the VC didn't like your idea, or maybe they didn't think your startup was ready for investment.

Also remember,  VCs are bombarded with pitches every day. They can't invest in all of them, so it's not surprising that most pitches are rejected.

Here are a few slides I sent the guys by way of a pre-amble:
For all the blithe talk about #EnergyTransition, the blunt truth is that civilisation runs on hydrocarbons. Remove the latter and the former falls, too.

Even the food we eat requires them. We have not improved the living standards of all our teeming billions on the quasi-Neolithic methods of farming so beloved of the ignorant #Green metromarxists.
