Who might be interested in Covid-safe theatre performances aimed at those who are clinically vulnerable, who we can invite or ask to RT? Keep seeing tweets from people wanting performances prioritising access needs of those shielding, but not sure how to get the word out.
This is our show, and Thursday 24th November is our Covid-safe performance with socially distanced seating, mandatory mask wearing, and the cast and team COVID testing.…
Batman is NOT in a wheelchair accessible auditorium (which we are deeply sorry for - we are doing a run next year which is in a wheelchair accessible theatre).

All performances will be relaxed and audio described, working on captioning now! #access

My access questions:

What is the entrance to your building?
Is there completely step free entry? (No small steps etc)
Is wheelchair access at the same entry as others will use?
Is there clear signage if wheelchair access is elsewhere?
What size are your main entrance doorways? Or are they double width?
What effective door width are any internal doors/corridors I may need to use?
Do you have a fully accessible toilet with step free access, widened door, grab rails, space for a large powerchair in addition to transfer space?
Is this clearly signed and easily accessible from area we will be using?

Current #adaptation projects do not automatically enhance #gender equality | need to be intentionally brought in at planning & implementation stages.

Delighted to have brainstormed👇figure with @Joyashree9
Embedding gender considerations and facilitating #women’s participation in project design and implementation along with #inclusive #policies, training, information access, planning, and monitoring is needed
Additional course correction for #SDG5 is needed.
Our #SDG5plus (SDG5+) approach takes into consideration #intersectionality and gender aspects beyond #women alone, & can help #adaptation actions move towards meeting #genderequality and other #climatejustice goals.

#NFT ticketing has all the ingredients necessary to create an overnight boom for mainstream NFT adoption.

Here’s how 🧵👇
In business, there are two types of services:

💊 Vitamins - Add benefits to a customer’s life

💉 Pain Killers - Remove a problem that the customer cannot stand dealing with

The best services, companies or technology use cases do both.

🧵 (1/17)
☠️ Let’s start with the PAIN: Fake Tickets ☠️

To illustrate the scale of this problem, let’s look at a near #riot that broke out as a result of fake tickets just 2 months ago.

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...

A2AD denies an adversary’s freedom of movement.
AA –inhibition of enemy military movement into an area of operations.

Take a bow @mvankerkhove ##COVID19's rock star 🎉👏. Incredible wide-reaching analysis of where we are and where we need to be going forward in the pandemic @ISID_org #IMED2021. Some highlights in this thread
Drivers of testing diversity & strategies #COVID19 - I'd add the challenge of a health workforce to contact trace, as well as quarantining and isolating those exposed and those infected in #LMICs, where poverty and overcrowding in households/informal dwellings is so common.
Stressing the importance of public health & social measures (PHSM) and how they reduce as vaccination rates for #COVID19 increase in populations. But @mvankerkhove message at #IMED2021 is "Vaccines, NOT Vaccines ONLY" @ISID_org @ProMED_mail @BorisJohnson

“Knowledge is power, but it is much more powerful when it is shared.”

As part of @Wikimedia's @Wikipedia #WikipediaByUs campaign we celebrate access to knowledge.

Why is knowledge sharing important especially in a time of a pandemic? How can we counter misinformation? Thread 🧵
Early on in the #COVID19 pandemic there was much fear, uncertainty, and misinformation. There still is!

As we gather more data, new research, more knowledge, our understanding improves and we can counter those uncertainties.

But that knowledge needs to be accessible too...
Numbers and statistics can be overwhelming, and so needs to also be shared in a way that's simple, clear and understandable

Just like a picture can tell a thousand words, graphs can put numbers and quantities into perspective, show trends, and tell a better story

We’re now 40 years into the #HIV response, with a great infographic from @UNAIDS highlighting key accomplishments, but there is still much work to be done! #ph260720 Image
Despite incredible progress expanding #access to HIV treatment to over 27 million people worldwide, we are still leaving some groups behind #ph260720. Which groups do you think are being left behind?
HIV treatment #access for children has always lagged behind that of adults, with only 54% of children living with HIV on life-saving treatment compared to 74% of adults #ph260720

Fellow #anthropologists preparing for the upcoming @AmericanAnthro meeting are feeling exasperated because the #access copies of our pwrpts are due several weeks before the #conference #2021AAABaltimore.

What, then, of the time-honored tradition of writing your paper en route to the conference, or over stale coffee on your hotel room desk mere minutes before the presentation? If that isn't our disciplinary culture, I don't know what is.

Here's a fun #NINO - the UK's National Insurance Number - [Thread] to start the weekend 👇

Maybe I should do an #NHSnumber one sometime? It's a fascinating story, which (ironically) starts with these...
[With thanks to @guy_herbert, @TomSamaki, @PrivacyMatters & others for encouragement!]

Before I start a geeky 'deep dive' on the #NHSnumber, to provide some (personal/professional) context that will hopefully become apparent, I'll just drop these two images here:
So, to begin.

My last #hackathon & #socialenterprise pitch was to improve minority participation in #clinicaltrials. This trial is has 74% black participants compared to usual 2.5%. Why?

Yes, we do need to expand access. Colon cancer kills.

#MedTwitter #BlackTwitter #NurseTwitter thoughts?
In trials for new therapies however, you see this:

“Even though heart conditions disproportionately affect Black individuals, they accounted for only 2.5% of clinical trial participants in a global trials report by the Food and Drug Administration.”…
So black participants are the majority in WHICH studies?

Having been in executive suite, speaking on #access broadly, I saw non-clinicians use “access” to shame clinicians on self care or pointing out workplace issues. Yet same administrators would cut number of staff for budget
