@Grouchy0ldVet @stillgray @PrisonPlanet U can download a nonRoot-firewall, I personally use netguard.me You can chose to block most apps, services that you don't want accessing your internet connection (WiFi/4G/Location/Mic) also use a #VPN #Netguard and it tells you what is trying to access those services.
@Grouchy0ldVet @stillgray @PrisonPlanet And as people have stated here, move your email to @protonmail and internet searches to @DuckDuckGo. Remember an #internet search is a query to a database. There is no such thing as googling. There are internet searches. Choose those companies that respect your #privacy
@Grouchy0ldVet @stillgray @PrisonPlanet @ProtonMail @DuckDuckGo At the end of the day, your data is worth money. You have to change your habits, there is no such thing as a free service. Specially from the likes of #google #Amazon #Twittfacebook. These companies didn't even invent the #technology, they just market it as if they did. Good luck

1. Thanks to @RealWriteWinger & @sdesla I've learned of a new swamp outlet:
B-Corp
They are extortionists sort of - using the UN's Sustainable Development Goals to push businesses out of business unless they take the knee.

2. "B-Corp certification is administered by the non-profit B Lab"

The Harbinger - China Tech & VC Podcast

In a candid chat Shunwei VP Meng Xing, who founded his first start up while completing his MBA at MIT, talks about 3 fundamental differences between the tech startup scene in China and USA.

Read more!
Socio-economic environments:
China has large population segments (eg. factory workers) whose distinct needs make it possible to build unicorns that can scale in niche markets. Quick growth in US, on the other hand, can be challenging.
First-mover advantage or not?
In US, it pays to be the first in executing a groundbreaking idea. However, in China, companies have to deal with copy-cats. Therefore, it's imperative to keep innovating and improving gaps in existing products.

0/ Brand as a #ThirdSpace by Habib Ullah Khan

While my poor friend was teaching the class, I was taking notes.

Notes from the Brand as a Third Space lecture with @Huk06 today at @HabibUniversity

#startups #founders #branding #marketing #thirdspace
1/ The spaces in our lives

1st Space. Home. Where we live, eat, share and sleep.

2nd Space. Work. Where we go work and earn a living.

3rd Space. Coffee shops. Stadiums. Gaming Consoles. Gyms. Trails.

Places where we go to be ourselves or find ourselves.
2/ The difference between spaces

The first two spaces are associated with society's expectations - imposed stereotypes and societal models

The third space is associated with aspiration and dreams

The third space is about choice.

It’s an interesting approach at @MITSloanFellows - placed into teams rather than allowed to select own team. The teams are formed so there is likely to be misalignment and conflict. And then we have to work together for grades. We cannot do usual bonding activities via Zoom
Teams are being coached & cautioned that it is easy to create “in” and “out” groups to exclude, marginalize, label some in group. Instead, keep open communication and pause prior to forming any conclusion.

mindtools.com/pages/article/…
“Identify where on ladder you are.

Are you:
-Selecting your data or reality?
-Interpreting what it means?
-Making or testing assumptions?
-Forming or testing conclusions?
-Deciding what to do and why?”

Vet, verify, listen, consider

(This seems especially relevant for biases)

First week of class at @MITSloan for @MITSloanFellows has been intense. Lots of learning on #mindst to move into or affirm #growthmindset - one of the videos we watched was on “Thinking Fast and Slow” or two systems in our brain.

m.youtube.com/watch?v=PirFrD…
A few pictorial representations and some humor. In our fast-paced world it is easy to rely on mental models or trusted individuals instead of verifying facts or being thoughtful

Interestingly I found that some scientist can be living in system 1 based on trust in own expertise ImageImageImageImage
That seems particularly relevant now given how blindsided so many institutions were by the #pandemic, with healthcare excutives & policy makers

seeing familiar patterns

not staying aware of the expected but rare event

In the first post of breakItDown, we look at the history of telephones and phone nos. Let's dive deep into the technology that changed the world and brought it closer.
Initially, 2 telephone endpoints were hardwired and couldn’t talk with anyone else but the already existing telegraph network changed that. Telegraph worked by transmitting electrical signals over a wire laid between stations. These stations were used as telephone exchanges.
Telephone endpoint was connected to a telephone exchange which routed the call to the other end point. Initially, this was done physically via switchboards which were restricted to a small local area.

Let’s talk #safetyculture

@TheIHI

It’s a framework for a harm reduction towards all: patients & families as well as all staff

Important:
growth mindset
instead of
fixed mindset

to have needed uncomfortable conversations

#MedTwitter #AcademicTwitter #MedEd #NurseTwitter
This framework has been applied to reducing harm, mostly through medication error (though intended to achieve population health)

Then was expanded to patient experience

Also, cost of care

More recently we have added clinician wellbeing

=quadruple aim

ihi.org/communities/bl…
What has not been clearly stated in any of these #safety framework is disparities, structural inequity, or racism

The acute care side of the hospital - money maker - thinks of this as type of safety & #quality

but not #populationhealth

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

THREAD about some of the #economic/#technology chatter we’re hearing from the media/public/govt while the #China-#India boundary situation has been playing out 1/
For one, there are once again calls in India to boycott Chinese products (seen these before, including during Doklam) with hashtags like #boycottmadeinchina, #boycottchina and #boycottchinesegoods. Also saw these recently when COVID-related anti-China sentiment was peaking 2/
The boycott calls have been spurred to some extent by Sonam Wangchuk (inspiration for Aamir Khan’s character in 3 Idiots), who has called for a #GrabYourWallet response by Indians. Some “influencers” have since claimed they have deleted Chinese apps 3/

1/ 🗣We at @anghami have been working for 8 years proudly in #Lebanon supporting 100s of families, building tech & music to reach over 80 million users from #Beirut.
We're unfortunately, one of the few global startup stories in the country.
@anghami 2/ 👥We've always recruited based on merit across the Lebanese society, never differentiating between religion or belonging.
Today, because of a tweet that's not endorsed by our company from a personal account, I read calls to fire an employee & boycott #anghami
@anghami 3/ ☹️ In contrast, others warn of retaliation with counter boycotts if the employee is fired.
That's our sad #Lebanon life. Our new demarcation lines? Mat7af or Gallery Semaan?
I am very well versed in tech, and know ziltch in politics & would like to remain so.

1/30 In two forthcoming pieces, I examine #Japan's response to the #COVID19 #coronavirus #pandemic. I'll summarize the main non-theoretical points here (long thread alert!).
2/30 #Japan’s figures have always looked good compared to many other countries, which initially led to suspicion that the ‘real’ numbers of #COVID19 #coronavirus infections & death were being played down.
3/30 #Tokyo Metropolitan Government at least has now released full #COVID19 figures, including general death rates, seeming to put this argument to rest (but these figures are also now being challenged). japantimes.co.jp/news/2020/05/0…
