What is the Experiment, again?

"And #Covid is a project, however one tweezes it apart, of an unelected #billionaire #class that continues to amass enormous almost unthinkable amounts of money and property, beginning a #project of reshaping the #planet."

"& their influence is now expressed in global corps &, more, in NGOs & institutions such as the #WHO & #WorldBank, the UN, & the #WEF. That they are ignorant of their own hubris is perhaps the most terrifying part of this entire scenario. This is the age of the rigid & weak ego." Image
"The eradication of the unconscious, of archaic dreams & collective imagination, the disenchantment of the world, & of the self, has taken place rapidly over the last 30 yrs ... & this disenchanted human is one who finds it hard to grasp the ideas of #class & economic #coercion." Image

🧵HILO: mis clases online.
Muchas veces me han preguntado por aquí qué uso para dar mis clases online, así que les haré un resumen de algunas de las herramientas esperando a que les sea útil en algún momento😊
#Class #Online #Science
Para las clases en forma sincrona uso la plataforma ZOOM. De este modo puedo generar los links de las clases desde el inicio de semestre. Como los horarios son fijos, las clases las organizo en el ZOOM usando la opción de reuniones recurrentes.
De esta forma el link de cada clase, cada día, es el mismo y es más sencillo para los estudiantes que éstos sean fijos 😊 Estas clases las grabo para luego compartirlas con los estudiantes.

We love our #STEAM friends 😍 Discover the #Roobopoli initiative handled by @Perlatecnica and @_Bluenet_ 👏and aiming to create an educational experience in the field of #SmartCities

#STEAM #education #creativity #programming Image
Roobopoli is a tiny smart city, a miniature city, where the life of the inhabitants called Roobo, is assisted by modern #technologies, the same available in real cities, but reproduced in scale for educational, testing and simulation purposes 🏙️
As part of the Roobopoli project, one of the main activities consists in the construction and programming of #smart #vehicles called Roobokart, which will have to move independently on the roads of Roobopoli 🚘

Personal submission to @ScotGovJustice Consultation now available on @UmbrellaLane website

Full response - bit.ly/374Z1s6

A thread of main arguments to save anyone having to read through what became a second thesis 🙄 on these important issues 1/8

#NotEqualNotSafe
@scotgov ‘s sweeping definition of prostitution as inherently violence renders invisible actual acts of abuse in the sex industry; continues an ineffective& dangerous reliance on criminal justice approaches that fosters unsafe working practices& deters victims to seek redress 2/8
The push to criminalise clients is a misplaced moralistic agenda put forward at the expense of a much needed social justice & public health approach in policy & service provision - that centres the varied needs of people this consultation states intention to support 3/8

Another great episode in this series, this time touching on #academia, #class and #traumainformed understandings of distress.

I love how @themichjam's #livedexperience informs her understanding of the change we need to see in #mentalhealth systems.

Highlights...

1/11
"You're such an inspiration!"

"Are you safe to be here?"

On responses from mental health professionals when identifying as person with #livedexperience during guest lectures.

2/11
"Over the years, I just got angry and that's why I decided to start speaking about it"

On the choosing to share #livedexperience as a form of activism.

Conversations about the 'left-behind white working class' have made a return to the political scene in recent weeks. Below is a thread about Runnymede's recent work in this area and how pitting 'race' and class against one another serves nobody well /1
It is worth noting that this is not a race row and pitting children from different ethnic backgrounds against each other is highly damaging with regards to social cohesion, it ignores the large achievement gap among White British children from different socio-economic backgrounds
The current conception of the working class in the public debate is often based on a mixture of misinformation and mythology, fails to recognise working-class voices and agency, increases division across racial lines, and is divorced from the lived realities /2

The Aristocracy - Survival of the Fittest via @YouTube
Actually, this documentary has set my mind into commotion and took me back into those years when the New #Labour and #Blair came into power in the late 1990s in the #UK.
We eagerly watched what reforms under the #collectivists would imply, as the UK had a manifest #class system.
The worse thing which #Blair could do, at that time, was to remove the #hereditary #peers from the House of #Lords.
This particular political decision had far-reaching consequences for the #British Society,as a vernacular mindset that rejected #evolution & tradition jointly arose

1/ Seven lessons from seven months of #teaching #remotely in the post Covid-19 world.

Shorter sessions.

Rather than running a 90 minute #class break it down into 4 x 15 minute session.

Each session has a central point, a framework, an example and an application exercise.
2/ An exercise needs to be time bound and interactive. Group work would be great if you could pull it off.

For instance, in financial modeling, I share half completed worksheets that need to be completed in the next 15 minutes.

In pitching, I ask them to critique a pitch.
3/ As #teachers our objective is to #teach. Can't teach without getting your students to do hands on work.

Things work differently in remote setting. You can explain all you want but till your students do the thing you are teaching with their hands, your job is not done.

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...

0/ Brand as a #ThirdSpace by Habib Ullah Khan

While my poor friend was teaching the class, I was taking notes.

Notes from the Brand as a Third Space lecture with @Huk06 today at @HabibUniversity

#startups #founders #branding #marketing #thirdspace
1/ The spaces in our lives

1st Space. Home. Where we live, eat, share and sleep.

2nd Space. Work. Where we go work and earn a living.

3rd Space. Coffee shops. Stadiums. Gaming Consoles. Gyms. Trails.

Places where we go to be ourselves or find ourselves.
2/ The difference between spaces

The first two spaces are associated with society's expectations - imposed stereotypes and societal models

The third space is associated with aspiration and dreams

The third space is about choice.

A few comments is response to "Planet of the Humans". Gibbs (& Zehner) slay many "green energy" myths once & for all – while exposing the foundation "movements" as part & parcel of industry/capital & ruling classes – which they are.
Added caveat: Industrial civ. is destroying all life on Earth. Human destruction of #biodiversity is not created equally: "Tribal peoples are the best conservationists & guardians of the natural world, & 80% of our planet’s #biodiversity is found in #tribal territories."
Link to caveat:

wrongkindofgreen.org/2020/04/22/wat…

"An analysis of #population growth that accounts for the vast differences in consumption across #class & region is critical in examining the worldwide environmental crisis."

Today, I will try my hand at live tweeting insights from "A #Home of One's Own", a two-day #researchworkshop on socially & economically #marginalised women's experiences of and negotiations with #genderinequalities in #informalurbanhousing in India.
This workshop has been organised by #JadavpurUniversity (School of Women's Studies), #RabindraBharathiUniversity (Centre for Women's Studies) and #Parichiti, a women's organisation. All three are research partners on a #GCRF project funded by @GoldsmithsUoL.
Since Oct 2018, I have collaborated with Dr. Henrike Donner, who is leading it, to develop #researchcollaborations with #educational and #development organisations in India to implement a pilot study on #genderurbanhousing. This workshop marks the end of the first phase.
