Preoccupied by about all the political crises from East to West...that I have been cutting my onions all wrong. Not a chef tonight. Here my thread on #Portugal crise while cooking late. 1/1
Early elections said to be most likely outcome in #Portugal amid political crisis over today’s #Budget vote, which is widely expected to fail. PM #Costa says he will run again as the PS candidate, as left-wing parties call for the government to re-submit Budget proposals. 1/2
Hmm.. All political parties brought down the government, 😏 even the Communist Party. There were some deputies "not registered" 🤔.... they left 2 political parties, but remained in Parliament, abstain and now they will not be elected. Right? 1/3

So the #Budget sounded like it shd be good news…but unfortunately it’s not.

1) It’s not news. The £5bn figure for funding has been on the table for a year and has been roundly agreed to be wholly inadequate to address safety issues.
#EndOurCladdingScandal #BuildingSafetyCrisis
2) It doesn’t change the current criteria for accessing govt funding which only funds a small part of the array of essential remediation to make buildings safe. These aren’t optional extras - buildings cannot be signed off without the full set of works done.
3) Govt consistently stating that building owners are “responsible” for ensuring buildings meet safety standards but not that they must meet those costs - is essentially writing a blank cheque from leaseholders’ pockets. This does nothing to change that situation.

#UnpopularOpinion: Some product teams like to prioritize their budgets for the solution rather than researching more into the problem. However without proper UX research, any solutions will be incomplete.

Let us talk about some ways to master "UX Research On Budget" in 3 steps!
Step 1 - List out assumptions and confirm them!

Whatever assumptions you may have about the users, list them out. Your assumptions may not be necessarily true, but it is safer to write them down on paper and get a better understanding of your assumptions of the user.

Step 2 - Make use of customer support data

Customer support teams have way more insights than you would imagine. They are the ones interacting with the users regularly and if this is documented, you have your raw user data ready to analyze.

2. Chart a budget plan: Try to jot down your daily spending in a diary or spreadsheet. Writing provides much needed clarity on every subject!

Praying for defeat: Labour insiders accused of wrecking #Corbyn campaign in leaked report…
The #Labour Party has launched an “urgent investigation” into a leaked internal report on antisemitism, which has revealed evidence of factionalism and alleged sabotage that took place during Jeremy #Corbyn's four-year tenure as party leader.
The 860-page report found evidence of a “hyper-factional atmosphere” at the party’s headquarters with regards to #Corbyn, who was replaced by former shadow Brexit secretary Keir #Starmer as party leader earlier this month.

மார்ச்சி 2ஆம் தேதி
என் திருமணத்திற்கு ஆகும் மொத்தச் செலவுகளை பற்றி முதலில் ஒரு லீஸ்ட் போட்டு எழுதிக்கொண்டேன் அதில் எதலாம் தேவையற்றது என குறித்துக்கொண்டேன்.

அப்போது என் கையில் இருநேதது 40ரூ
அப்போது என் கையில் இருந்து 40ரூவாய் மட்டுமே

திருத்தணி முருகன் கோயிலில் திருமணம் என்பதால் முன்பதிவு செய்வது முக்கியமானது.
கோயில் clerkகிடம் திருமணத்திற்கான விண்ணப்பங்களை பெற்றேன் அதன் பிறகு #200மஞ்சள் திருமணப் பத்திரிக்கை அச்சடித்தேன் அதற்கானச் செலவு 1000ரூ ஆனாது இதுவே
இதுவே முதல் செலவு..!

("எங்களது மொத்த Budget 8லட்சம் முதல் 10லட்சம் வரை நீண்டது,)

கோயில் திருமணம் நடைபெற வேண்டுமானால்
திருமண விண்ணப்பத்தில் VAO RI மற்றும் தாசில்தார் அவர்களின் கையெப்பம் வாங்க வேண்டிருந்தது தேர்தல் நாள் வேறு 15நாட்கள் ஒடியது கையெழுத்து வாங்க

Coming up, key highlights from todays’ federal budget as the government plans more than $101B in net new spending over the next three fiscal years (2021-2024), representing 4.2% of Canada’s GDP. #cdnpoli #cdnecon #budget2021
Budget 2021 and fiscal guardrails for new spending: “A comprehensive range of indicators show that the Canadian economy is still far from seeing a strong labour market with broadly shared benefits.” #cdnpoli #cdnecon #budget2021
Budget 2021: last year’s deficit now projected at $354.2B. For 2021-22: a projected $154.7B shortfall, but a warning that third-wave slowdowns could add $15B to deficit. #cdnpoli #cdnecon #budget2021

LOVE being faculty at @MIT this semester for a class on #dataanalytics & #datascience. I tend to PM my mentees, especially women and #blackexcellence to start to prepare questions to ask. Too often people stay silent. Speak up. Never be embarrassed to show #curiosity.
Listening right now to mid-semester progress reports from teams and am feeling like such a proud #datascience #BigData #bigdataanalytics momma. Bear cubs doing good (well AND good in world)

LOVE that this is a space within @MIT that focuses on #SDoH and #equity.
Literally right now, hearing about a study on #socialmedia chatter as a driver of vaccines hesitancy driven by #Twitter - start postulate "cause/effect" by an incident that happens within days after a vaccine - like ppl automatically assume a death is "caused" by vaccine

The field of #psychology has MANY problems. SO many levels of wrong:

1-clinicians designing torture
2-a strategy to exploit the lack of ethics by APA leadership to gain scope of practice
3-monetizing harm
4-validating minority distrust of #mentalhealth…
The details are damning. It was clearly about expanding turf/scope of practice with a “deal with the devil” to bypass civilian regulations & go after DoD💰💰💰

There was not any commitment to human rights but manipulating words to craft unethical policy…
There have been reputation repair attempts, to distance self from torture, however professional societies tend to fixate on gaining or protecting turf & scope of practice. They use patients for “stories” but in reality show little care about patients.…

The UCP government has passed Budget 2021.

It fails to deliver a plan to create jobs, diversify Alberta’s economy, or specify how it will spend billions of dollars in contingency funding.

#ableg #abpoli #alberta #ab #abbudget2021 #budget #abbudget #ucp #abeconomy
Budget 2021’s signature Alberta Jobs Now strategy commits the government to getting $62 million out the door in the next four business days, but the program has yet to be launched.

And while the budget promises “sector strategies,” they remain under construction with no estimate for additional job creation.

🚨 NEW 🚨 750,000 viable jobs are unnecessarily put at risk by Sunak’s #budget2021

A stimulus half the size it needed to be + lack of a follow-up work support scheme post furlough in September means unemployment could rise to 2.7 million by this time next year 1/4
In his budget Rishi Sunak should have “boosted it like Biden” to secure a strong and sustainable recovery

A big stimulus would prevent such a steep rise in unemployment by delivering higher public investment, more jobs, stronger public services and providing targeted support 2/4
Public investment after the #budget will remain below 3% of GDP, while it could have been raised to 5% - which would have created jobs and gone further towards reaching the UK's climate targets 🌿🚅🚲🌳 3/4

I've thinking about the budget in relation to the constituents whose cases I have raised in the chamber this past year
Short thread 👇1/5
5% VAT for hospitality is welcome as is the furlough extension but the reality is that furlough is costing businesses that are currently closed money - it's not the scheme they accessed a year ago. Fixed monthly costs continue and grants don't cover them 2/5
There's no actual change to Self Employment Support - it's just that more people qualify by having 19/20 tax returns. Despite the work of @APPGGapsSupport and all of the support groups - nothing for #ExcludedUK #ForgottenLtd and others 3/5

The more the #budget and its implications sink in, the more I feel my anger rising.

Our Govt has learned nothing from last year. Think about it. When everything else was stripped back and stripped away, what remained? What, in the end, was essential?
We relied on our NHS and care homes, the schools and nurseries that look after our children and enabled key workers to keep going. The supermarkets and the chemists.

Our caring economy, built on the labour of women, never stopped working for a moment. Because it couldn’t.
Women make up 77% of the health workforce, 83% of social care and 92% of childcare, with women from ethnic minorities over-represented.

We may be seen as the 'second sex' but in the face of this pandemic women were the first line of defence. Because caring is essential work.

As the Chancellor announces the #Budget, he'll draw attention to pandemic financial support.

But we will also be watching out for further details of the #NationalInfrastructureBank (NIB). (1)
The NIB has the potential to be a key enabler of #NetZero, but this depends on the design of its green mandate.

Our research w/ @SiemensUKNews shows it must be place based, have an advisory capacity and provide development capital. (2)
.@theCCCuk recommends #NetZero policies should be designed to enable local financing.

But local government currently lacks the capacity, tools and development capital to build a pipeline of Net Zero infrastructure projects. (3)
