What is the investment case for #alternative asset investing in a nutshell?

Here are some of the key considerations in this thread 👇

1. For many decades, the conventional wisdom around #investing has comprised a roughly 60%/40% portfolio of equities and bonds
2. However, the world currently finds itself in a tough position - #equity valuations have run incredibly hard for a long time, but at the same time #investors will have a hard time recycling from equity into debt due to historically low interest rates
3. So what do you do if you’re worried that your historic way of thinking isn’t going to hold up in the new world? THIS is where alternatives play a role for a portion (not all) of your #portfolio

"I was diagnosed with cancer. So I took ayurvedic immunotherapy. I was feeling well but the tumors in my lungs were growing" says a 25yr old female patient , with metastatic lung carcinoma with a poor prognosis. What is Ayurvedic immunotherapy? 😡(1) #ayurveda
At the time of diagnosis , had this girl followed the accepted , approved and effective treatment , the intent would have been curative not palliative as it is now. (2)
Is there a regulatory body in India that looks into such falsely claimed cures? How many more lives will be left at the mercy of these unverified treatment methods. (3) #oncologists #cancer #alternative #medicine

Common drugs causing fatty liver
Steroids, Valproate
Inj Tetracycline
#HIV #AIDS meds NRTIs
Rare - methotrexate, chemodrugs irinotecan, 5FU, tamoxifen
Also important is Amiodarone
Herbals with #Margosa oil too
Remember #alternative meds rich in fats are important causes too.

GLI #SCIENZIATI SONO #ANIMALISTI

Durante questa nostra avventura con il gruppo dei PhD italiani in Bioscienze, ci siamo confrontati (e in alcuni casi, scontrati) con visioni diverse riguardo il rapporto tra la #Scienza e gli #animali di laboratorio.

#gibran #ilprofeta

1/11
A pensarci bene questi schieramenti #Scienziati e #animalisti in realtà non esistono: gli scienziati (quelli moderni) sono animalisti e gli animalisti (quelli veri) riconoscono l’importanza del ruolo degli scienziati anche attraverso #sperimentazioneanimale

2/11
Ci siamo resi conto che anche noi siamo in parte #condizionati da questa falsa narrazione, alimentata dalle frange #estremiste di chi vorrebbe una #Scienza totalmente priva di vincoli o con le mani legate in un angolo della cella, pronta ad interevenire a comando.

Italian #DPA lock down the risky #surveillance law that aim to have (biometric_identification+cctv+smart_image_analisys) to check public employees punch-in and punch-out.
This time DPA analyze implementing decree.
In october 2018 the DPA did the same on the draft of the main law Image
The law is already in force (D.Lgs 56/2019) but it lacks of application rules.

The DPA is highlighting and pointing out all the issues related to the law itself ant to the application rules, that are conflicting with the #GDPR main #principles.
Main issues are:

1) terms and #definitions don't match with GDPR definitions. they have to be lined up
2) principles of #Necessity & #Proportionality are completely unattended
3) the new biometric gates can't be #mandatory
4) #alternative gates should be available if needed

A new paper in @sciencemagazine from #Belkaid lab at #NIH described an #alternative differentiation #pathway for #commensal-specific T cells in presence of inflammation. Do the data presented support conclusions? Let's dive in.

science.sciencemag.org/content/363/64…
1. #Commnesal S. epidermidis–specific -#MIIINA:H2-M3+ CD8+ T cells ordinarily differentiate into Tc1 or Tc17 subsets. However, when co-exposed to chitin or sand fly (source of #inflammation), Tc17 subset also produce type II cytokines.
2. In such condition, type II #cytokines such as IL-5 or IL-13 are produced by CCR6+ Tc17 cells (out of which 30% are IL-17+). However, there is no overlap between IL-17+ and IL-5+/IL-13+ CD8+ T cells. So, the authors conclusion about "paradoxical phenotype" is unsubstantiated.

NCRI President-elect Maryam Rajavi on the Roadmap to Freedom, 2018 Iran Uprising Summit, September 22:
1- “I want to stress the path we have chosen and the horizon ahead of us as we strive to reach the Iranian people's grand destination.”
#Iran #FreeIranSummit #Alternative
2- “We seek popular sovereignty. We are fighting for the establishment of a republic based on the vote of the people. We consider the people's free vote to be the sole criterion of legitimacy for national officials.”
#Iran #FreeIranSummit #Alternative
3-“We stress human rights in accordance w/ the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, & in accordance w/ conventions adopted by the United Nations. The mullahs' sharia edicts, which make up the legal precedent of the regime's punitive laws, will have no place in tomorrow's Iran.”

1/ What's wrong with #lawfirm compensation? Let @jordan_law21 count the ways.As predicted 🔮 (by me, about what I was going to do 😇), a #tweetstorm. First the link: law21.ca/2018/09/how-co…
2/ Next, my favorite #micdrop 🎤 quote: "law firms incentivize their lawyers to act in ways that are counter-productive to lwayers' happiness, clients' satisfaction and the firms' effectiveness." and 💥goes the 🧨-- more #truthbombs follow.
3/ 💯 agree that legacy compensation systems (and the attendant infrastructure of #tech, #process, #policy, governance as well as resulting #culture) emphasizes #lawyer effort over #client outcomes (namely, the billable hour). BUT I add here: what would be a better #alternative?
