🌍 Our 2022 #Science Board Symposium on "The #Emergent #PoliticalEconomy or #ClimateChange" kicks off with opening remarks from President David Krakauer.

Follow this 🧵 as we provide live coverage of this event all day...
"For those of you who think behavior change can prevent #ClimateChange...behavior WILL change when climate changes. Shutdowns from the pandemic resulted in a reduction of #C02 emissions of about 7.5%."
- SFI/@Harvard Prof Dan Schrag opens our speaker series today
"We *used* to talk about #ClimateChange used to be something that would happen to people in Bangladesh fifty years from now."

Re: #ClimateJustice,
"Children born today are going to deal with climate change they had no role in causing."

My first month in #NeoTokyo and the experience's I've had from trading & alpha to connecting with developers...

I'm sure it'll come to no surprise that you've seen the #citizens floating around on twitter, always euthanistic about building the future of crypto/metaverse.

Which converts very similarly into the discord as well.

So what's behind the walls of the illuminati of crypto?

When I first joined I had quite the entrance. Announcing who I am, my ambitions/beliefs and showcasing my gaming development with the goals we have to hit a niche but proven play and earn market.

1/3 Who is Mavis Gumbo?
⭐️ Jorum Gumbo's sister. Jorum led the Zim Airways scandal which had expensive offices at 1426 Gletwyn, Harare. Mavis' House.

⭐️ Mavis worked with Cuthbert Dube in the PSMAS scandal!

@VoteMavisGumbo @BitiTendai @zanupf_patriots @CCCZimbabwe @JMafume ImageImageImage
2/3
⭐️ Mavis Gumbo looted PSMAS by getting untaxed benefits which incurred a ZIMRA bill of US$1,2 million later to be settled by PSMAS at a time the institution was failing to pay salaries or settle medical aid claims! @GeorgeCharamba2 was a board member during this period
3/3
⭐️ For turning a blind eye to the looting by Cuthbert Dube and his team which included Mavis Gumbo, Board Members were paid ridiculous board fees. @GeorgeCharamba2 was pocketing an avg of US$57,000 per year in Board fees when PSMAS was failing to settle medical aid claims

Ok, ok... wait... hold on. I know what you're thinking. Why should I read this.

Ok, so, if Durham is right, this literally supports what we know, and at best, is meaningless, at worst, is horrifically damning for trump.
Source:cnn.com/2022/02/14/pol…
In this article, Durham states that Clinton passed information to the CIA about Russians being in contact with the trump campaign. Yes, we knew this.

He goes on to say that they specifically named trump as the contact. Yes, that was laid out. We knew this.
The Clinton campaign reached out to federal authorities witj intel they obtained from foreign officials who were surveilling Russian activity. That is specifically how the feds got involved in monitoring the trump campaign directly. They followed known Russian asset.

In an opinion-editorial by @htTweets, the study by DeepStrat & @_DialogueIndia - ‘Analysing the #NationalSecurity Implications of Weakening #Encryption’ was featured for its account on the #security vs. security debate involving the fundamental nature of #endtoendencryption. Image
The article sheds light on the #traceability challenges in #India, as identified in the report, which could potentially create vulnerabilities in modern #devices, #communication architecture and #cybersecurity, that can be exploited by bad actors.

"#Data: a new direction" - a public consultation by @DCMS on "reforms to the UK’s #DataProtection regime":

gov.uk/government/con…

The consultation ends on 19 Nov 2021, and you can respond by e-mail to DataReformConsultation@dcms.gov.uk or online here:

dcms.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_4P… Image
A quick sample of initial reactions...

We're clearly going to be hearing a lot about #LegitimateInterests, as well as #commercial and #public ones. The real question being, how do this Government's interests actually align with YOURS?

140+ pages on a Friday is a lot to digest, but @lilianedwards' "penumbra of often futile determinedly populist ideas largely not evidence-based" seems entirely consistent with @DCMS's Drunkard's Walk through #data and #ID this past year...

1. #Travel? #Holidays? #COVID19?

During this #COVID I am going to create a rolling thread about key issues and articles of interest, just so as you can see the evolution toward a return to normality in 2022, 2023, 2024 or 2025; according to predictions by #Aviation!
2. #Travel? #Holidays? #COVID19?

Interesting article about #staycations and their price!!

The attitude of some UK h/makers, is I'm afraid, a common feature found in holidays abroad. I've heard many a tale about the Master vs Serf behaviour of some Brits! independent.co.uk/voices/holiday…

It is very important in this period of humanity to take a serious look at what is happening in the world friends.

Watch this video first in its entirety & reflect upon current situations critically.

#Menticide is here & with it, a new attempt to establish a "#TechnoTotalitarian" rule over the lives of American citizens.

The final variant of #Coronavirus could very well be the manifestation of a #NewWorldOrder under #totalitarian rule.
That may sound absurd, but what is very concerning is that many talking heads in the media & even public figures are now making very carefully worded emotional appeals to logic to further induce a totalitarian #masspsychosis.

#MNPDWest meeting is discussing the homeless encampment. A room of almost exclusively white middle-aged residents are upset, asking why laws are not enforced...
#MNPD is explaining that folks don't necessarily commit crimes when police are walking around and that residents should have some compassion. Residents are visibly not happy with the answers they're receiving.
#MNPDWest: "not everybody over there is a criminal.
#Citizens: They are breaking the law, it's a park. They're criminals.

Yesterday, the Taskforce on Innovation, Growth and Regulatory Reform published a report outlining their vision to “refresh the #UK’s approach to regulation now that we have left the EU”. A thread on the life of #privacy post-#Brexit. (Trigger warning: it doesn't look good). 👇 1/
The report emphasises "#consumer #data" as "highly profitable." Something to note: the report mentions "#consumers" 52 times while mentioning "#citizens" 11 times. 2/

And in this single statement 👇 @MattHancock demonstrates not only his profound ignorance, but his underlying thinking - that information about you is a #TradableAsset.

Who "owns" the fact of your relationship with your sister? You? Her? Or your date of birth? Your current age?
Let's not even get started on things like #genomic data (i.e. data derived from your #DNA) which says things not only about you, but your relatives. Who "owns" that?

The reason the #powerful want people to think they "own" their #PersonalData - rather than it being protected...
...by a strong, well-enforced #rights framework - is that they can #force or #fool you into surrendering it, so the data you give them becomes THEIR "#property" to #exploit.

If '#DataIsTheNewOil', as they want you to believe, then what does that make YOU?

In keeping with its ethos of selfless service to the Nation, the #IndianArmy has created a number of #COVID facilities on a war footing in order to provide extensive medical assistance to veterans and their dependents at a number of places.(1/n)
One such facility has been created at Base Hospital Delhi Cantonment #BHDC where the entire hospital has been converted into a Covid hospital. At the start of the current COVID wave, the Base Hospital catered for 340 COVID beds of which just 250 beds were oxygenated.(2/n)
A plan was quickly put in place to expand the capacity to 650 COVID beds of which 450 beds will be oxygenated by 30 April 2021. The Intensive Care Unit #ICU is also being enhanced from 12 beds to 35 ICU beds by 29 April 2021. (3/n)

We need to talk about just how corrupt we've allowed #democracy in #America to become, to the point it isn't democracy in many respects. And we need to stop #partisan squabbling and get to fixing it before we end up a one-party state, like #China. Thread👇

In 2019, writing the decision for Common Cause v. Rucho, Chief Justice Roberts closed off the federal courts as an avenue for addressing partisan #gerrymandering, instead telling citizens to propose state constitutional amendments.
In many states, with statehouses #gerrymandered beyond reach of the people, or otherwise beholden to special interests, these citizen-amendments are the only avenue left for addressing #democracy reform and other policy concerns.

Inter Services Selection Board (ISSB), a #Thread

Myths & Rumors
--------------------------

A lot of rumors circulate around this selection and assessment centre e.g,

🔻 Only reserved for wards of Soldiers or those having a military background.

(n/1)
🔹 Totally wrong rather many wards of Soldiers / Senior officers (including Jernail de Puttar) get Not-Recommended.

🔻 Ethnicity or background matters in selection.
🔹Army damn cares about who you are & where you come from. Many senior officers or Influentials don't..

(n/2)
...send their kids or discourage them out of fear of 'Rejection' primarily they know their kids better (pun intended).

🔻 Preparing from ISSB Training Academies get immediate rejection.
🔹 This is #True, reason is ISSB has a whole paraphernalia of assessment officers..

#WWF storytelling as they #greenwash corporate #plunder & bear responsibility for the displacement, torture & murder of #Indigenous peoples:

"Building a sustainable & equitable future. For nature. For you."

Reality: "The financialization of #nature" Image
To obtain the required social license, the ruling class devised a strategy. A corporate campaign that would harness the momentum of the youth - to achieve the ruling class objectives & desired goals. #NewDealForNature

Big Boost for #Tourism.
The toursim potential of J&K is immense. There was no major national or global player in tourism sector earlier. Investment in tourist infrastructure like hotels will increase tourist arrivals.

THREAD - Independent thinking is a prerequisite for a healthy democracy. When sensationalism, tribalism and emotions replace accuracy, liberty and interests, democracy will be jeopardized. Over the past few days:
- Liberty-loving Republicans, who associate strong government with tyranny, have been calling for the deployment of combat troops to police Americans
- Government-loving Democrats, who shun individualism and the Second Amendment, have been calling for de-funding police, leaving Americans with the only alternative of arming themselves to the teeth.

The chronic dehumanization of black men, women, and children in the United States is anything but new. Society stereotypes black people as dangerous, lazy, and feeble-minded, among other things; and those stereotypes creep into our public policies and institutional practices. 1/6
The government that's supposed to protect and serve black Americans takes our labor and our tax dollars and then treats us like second class citizens. As long as black people have lived in the United States, we have had to fight for every bit of progress that we have achieved—2/6
emancipation from slavery, the right to vote, the right to vote again (because the 15th Amendment of 1870 wasn’t enough to ensure black suffrage…it would take nearly another century to secure that basic right of citizenship), the end of Jim Crow segregation, 3/6
