🔴 We're LIVE! Join @InclusionCA and @InclusionIntl to discuss the expansion of medical assistance in dying/#euthanasia in #Canada.

We'll be live-tweeting the session and sharing key points from the discussion here, follow this thread to catch the conversation!
👇
During the COVID-19 pandemic, #Canada legalized a pathway to euthanasia for people who are not terminally ill, provided they have a disability or disabling medical condition.
In practice, people with disabilities are dying because they live in poverty, can’t secure affordable adequate housing, and are avoiding #institutionalization.

The idea that we need to seek our partner's permission to do things that are within our own domain is rooted in the belief that possession equals love.
#openrelating #autonomy #agency
How do you define your autonomy and agency within your relationship?
What do you include in your domain?
What are things that you know you have a right to? That you are solely responsible for?
Do you need permission to see friends? go to the gym? buy yourself an outfit?
It is no different with dating other people.
It only feels different because of shame and guilt that we were indoctrinated with.

The flood of foreign Govt visitors post-Ukraine, suggests, that they are finally trying to understand #India & #GOI #policy from the "horses mouth" (instead of seeing it through the biases of neo-colonialists and their Indian agents).

"The erosion of meaningful culture, the domination of corporate & state media [] the loss of a knowledgable audience. And as one sees w/ the Russophobic response to Ukraine, the entire pandemic only served as a precursor to some complete mental collapse."

"And perhaps the best place (or one of them) to start is with ideas of #autonomy, #AI, and #tech (#media). For #automation and the internet have both, in their own ways, contributed hugely to the layers of mystification surrounding everything in the #capitalist west today."
"#AI seeks to achieve the same control over mental processes that #scientific management sought to achieve over physical #labour [in 2nd industrial revolution] through a process of rationalization, fragmentation, mechanization and routinization."

A learning thread about bodily #autonomy.

"Bodily Autonomy" falls under UN SDG3.

The #SDGs have been officially adopted by 193 countries - every member state of the UN.

All are to uphold #MyBodyIsMyOwn - yet whole populations are being coerced -

in servitude to capital. Image
United Nations:

"Bodily autonomy means that we have the power and agency to make choices over our bodies and futures, without violence or #coercion.

Our human rights, mental wellness and futures all depend on bodily autonomy."

This means NO to #MandatoryVaccinations.
United Nations:

"Intertwined with bodily autonomy is the right to bodily #integrity, where people can live #free from physical acts to which they do not consent."

UN Geneva: "Stop telling #women what to do with their bodies." Image

Today marks 2 yrs since I quit my job in investment banking at Wells Fargo where I was up for promotion to join a pre series A startup in enterprise sales. Some said this was a huge career risk.

I thought I’d share 11 observations on my learnings #startup #WallStreet
1) soft skills learned in IB are far more valuable than the technicals. IB teaches you how to execute and work tactically across teams which is invaluable working in an unstructured environment of a startup. There is zero handholding in startups. #autonomy
2) In banking you are used to thinking about companies selling for 9-15x EBITDA. At SaaS startups you are building a company that could sell for 20-50x TOP LINE REVENUE. This is a game changer. #ToTheMoon #equity

Judith Heumann a lifelong #advocate for rights of disabled people — one of the most influential voices in the disability rights movement said — "Independent living is not doing things by yourself. It is being in #charge of how things are done."
.
#UserLed #PeerLeaders #HomeAgain
This quote describes the #essence behind Home Again as an approach.
During the course of time the innovation and its #ethos has been shaped, directed and scaled-up by marginalised folks with psychosocial disabilities allowing many others like them to frame their #unique pathways and aspirations to well-being with #agency and #autonomy.

1/10: Do state actions affect the #psych #wellbeing of govt benefit recipients? In a new #openaccess @JPART1991 paper, @MartinBaekgaard, @SassMikkelsen, @JonasKrogh and I investigate this in the context of Danish #unemployment benefits. Short answer: Yes! academic.oup.com/jpart/advance-…
2/10: To test the question, we rely on survey, quasi, & natural experimental evidence, utilizing the fact that in March last year, as part of the #COVID19dk #lockdown, the usually strict active #labormarket policies of DK were suddenly suspended -> benefits became unconditional.
3/10: In other words, from 1 day to the next, unemployed ppl did no longer have to comply with a lot of demands (job training, work requirements, mandatory control meetings with caseworkers, documentation requirements, etc.) to receive benefits. What happened to their well-being?

The news cycle is a confusing space sometimes;

Eg1.
- #ElectricCars are the future for the planet
V's
- Mining #Lithium batteries is destroying parts of Bolivia/Chile/Argentina

2.
- Decentralised #Cryptocurrencies are the future
V's
- Mining #Bitcoin = huge energy consumption
The narrative around everything nowadays is all about #Values

Corporates latch onto every opportunity

Individuals the same (just read some of the stuff on LinkedIn) 🧐

Life & business is essentially a game
#Winning is always key! (Be nice tho)

The rest is Perception=Reality
I'm a #football fan & I see a footy angle in almost everything I read! 🧐

Not sure if these connections stand up, but here's what I saw;

- #Bolivia former President #EvoMorales was ousted in 2019. Evo a #SimonBolivar anti-imperialist styled leader

The people behind #CommunicationRights are not obstructionist behaviorists. @NeuroClastic has speech language pathologists, psychologists, educators, OTs, MTs, researchers, neuroscientists, & nonspeakers who communicate through AAC, spelling, & sign. #ActuallyAutistic #Autism
These people may have an aggressive approach to bullying autistics & our allies out of our own narratives & using their white (that's all white people) privilege to maintain the #monopoly on #Autism, but they are NOT allies. They are #oppressors. We can and do communicate. See?
We have orgs, individuals, & initiatives championing #CommunicationRights. @U4CommChoice @Communica1st @ekverstania @autselfadvocacy @awnnetwork_ @ReachEveryVoice and so many more. It's 2020, and we are #nonCompliant with a #Behaviorist agenda that parades itself as #science.

Can't agree more about most #DAO projects are like countries with parliaments but without the relevant executive #government @verbine Would love to incorporate an executive structure to Digital Native Organizations #DNO on #Autonomy Network. Thread here 👇👇👇
For the success of Community owned organizations and Digital companies there is a need for a strong executive team while I also feel a need for a strong governance council. #token #governance models #cryptonetworks
To solve some of the short comings of #DAO models we are proposing a model of Digital Native Organizations(DNO) with

1. Digital Ownership
2. Governance with decentralization as a range rather than a state
3. Token incentives for all stakeholders

The paradox of #decentralization and team #Leadership defines the future of #Crypto ecosystem. Excited to share my perspective on progressive decentralization in this thread
It starts with the purpose of the token. Is the project using the token to enable community ownership or is it predominantly inclined towards crowd funding ? #tokenization #crypto
Tokens inclined towards #Community #Ownership are on the right path towards progressive decentralization

"Actions speak louder than words" "Speak softly and acquire a bigger stick" Ignore the #DumbExperts who can't even interpret govt policy from its actions and keep asking govt to spell it out for them in words😢: business-standard.com/article/defenc…
2/ The commentariat has difficulty in deriving Govt policy intent from actions, only when the implication is positive, they find it very easy to unambiguously divine Govt's policy intentions from statements of random party people, when the implication is negative!🤓🤡
2/def The 21st C version of #Autonomy: One aspect is to develop mutually beneficial strategic relations directly with US allies, without the intermediation of the USA. This will make them immune from vicissitude of US domestic politics.

Personal "data #ownership" - "pure" or otherwise - is a #misnomer, and #rights frameworks clearly struggle when predicated upon notions of #DataSubjects - and when the #value (to others) of information about us lies largely in its #relationships (to others').
I'd unpack @martintisne's first point a bit further; the impacts we experience are of course based in the way we are #discriminated (for or against) by those who treat us as members of a #class by virtue of shared #characteristics on which they pass #judgement - but is that...
..."more" about "other people's #data" or more about the #judgements, and who's making 'em?

While I share concerns around 'purely' individual(istic) rights - "every woman for herself"! - the perils of #GroupRights lie in the degree to which they can undermine what must remain...

Attending @FboroFriday, we're inspired by #aerospace industry leaders and know one thing for certain: the future of aerospace is all about collaboration 🤝

Thanks for having us #FIAConnect!

After an insightful week at @FIAFarnborough, we wanted to share a few of our highlights:
We really enjoyed the #sustainability in #aerospace session: Dr Cristina Garcia-Duffy, Head of Technology – Strategy and Integration at @UKAeroInstitute, shared the ATI market outlook and the aircraft that will be coming into the market between 2020 and 2040+ ✈️🌱
Adefunke Adeyemi @IATA#25by2025 ensures better female representation in senior roles. We wanted an intentional approach from the industry and for the c-suite to walk the talk. At a 2019 EU #aviation event, 30 CEOs of 30 #airlines committed to the initiative" #WomenInAerospace

#miltwitter, #FieldCatering, how can we do it better! A fortune is being spent on #CRV, #IFV, #Robots and #Autonomy but a #Army (#Navy and #Airforce) marches on it stomach attributed to Napoleon Bonaparte. So what is the newest and latest?1/3 Image
What does #good look like? Why are cooks still in tents? Does the catering create a unnecessary Logistics burden that modularity can address. Who has the best Catering system in the world? (The ADF quality is excellent but the deployed facilities are a logistics burden). 2/3 Image

At the request of my new [South-African, obviously] colleague @MPlagis, I swallowed the 163 pages of the #Semenya award yesterday.

It wasn’t the most pleasant literary experience of my life, but at least I learned what a judicial ‘hot tub’ is.

Here is a book review:

#Sportslaw
1. In short, what is interesting in the award is actually also what the #CAS forgot to mentioned in its press release, the core of #IAAF’s winning case turns on the concepts of ‘biological males’ & ‘sports sex’.

#Semenya #Autonomy #Sportslaw
2. But let me start by regretting that the #CAS hearing was not public because @caster800m’s testimony (see paras 73-87) recalling what she went through since 2009 would have deserved a global audience.

$Uber’s and $LYFT’s disappointing debut seems to be impacting “innovation” stocks more broadly. Two problems nullify that relationship:
First, $UBER and $LYFT no longer are innovators, as #autonomy will destroy their business models.
Second, given the serious overvaluation in private relative to public equities, many more $IPOs will fail. We see many like for like companies valued in the private markets at 2-15 times those in the public markets as measured on price-to-sales.
