With #COVID19 restrictions continuing, we've created a new way to support older adults to #connect and be #creative. Introducing the #musichotline... a thread /1
Do you know someone who likes music but doesn't use the internet? Our friendly, professional musicians can give them a ring. To chat about their favourite music, play and sing together, and even write some new songs too! #songwriting #composition /2
Our idea was inspired by conversations with local people who are feeling isolated. The Music Hotline will support people to build connections, express their thoughts and ideas, and feel happier in the moment #creativeageing #music #art #community /3

Someone messaged us and asked us what the total would be to help everyone that is currently on our list.

To help everyone on our list we would need a total amount of $2435.00

That amount would let us fill all 23 hamper requests.
If anyone could help us reach that total, we could then put the minds of 23 families at ease because then they would not have to worry about having to feed their families. Having to feed their children. Having to go without eating just so they can make the food they do have last
You can help by donating to us or any other organization that feeds Calgarians in need.

If you would like to donate to us you can send an etransfer to:

Thread: 1/?

Late last night we had someone phone us at 11:45pm. It was from a mom of 4 who herself had not eaten nothing 3 days just so she could make the food she did have last for her children.
This mom had gone to the food bank and gone to the brown bagging for kids as well has utilized the free meals that are handed out throughout the city.

This is a mom who has tried EVERYTHING to find a job and get help from different organizations and the government.
She went to Alberta Works and was told she had to go after the dad for child support before they could help her. They gave her papers on how to contact maintenance enforcement and how to go to court for child support. That’s great but that doesn’t help her now....

Yes I am still feeling sick. Yes I am still in iso. My hubby was kind enough to let me sit in his truck while he worked on it in the driveway! He said that way he can keep an eye on me and stop me from anymore online shopping!

😃👋Hello #30days30waysUK. Today is #PeaceDay 'Shaping Peace Together'. We stand with @UN @UNDRR to promote compassion, kindness and hope in the face of the #COVID19 pandemic.

#WorldPeaceDay #DisasterRiskReduction Image
Compassion, kindness, hope are core qualities of the countless professionals and volunteers that sustain the Covid19 effort and other concurrent emergencies. Today on #30days30waysUK we celebrate YOU, the people that are making a positive difference despite hardship every day.
Covid19 has exposed fault lines in our societies. Marginalised communities suffer more than others. Hate speech + discrimination are on the rise. You can speak up on social media, challenge misconceptions and express support for those in need.

We need your help. We have loads of people asking us for help due to the following:

-Job Loss
-Cant Pay Rent
-Cant Pay Utilities
-Cant Afford Medication
-Cant Afford Medical Supplies
-Cant Afford School Supplies/Fees
Having to choose between Food and any of the above items should not happen and isnt right.

Simply giving someone, a family, a couple, a senior food security for even just a month...takes immense stress off of a person.
That’s why there are great organizations and groups like the @CalgaryFoodBank & @HarvestHillsYYC

Everyone works together and does what they need to do for the city that we all care about so much.

@UniLeiden @CarelStolker @C4Innovation On request I am doing a thread on online conferencing, with references. I might put that in a blog later. We are getting a ton of consultancy requests, especially by support staff, on this specific topic. #onlineconference 1/n
First, my expertise is limited to Edtech. In February of this year we did a hybrid event on Edtech for Sustainability @PLNT_Leiden , w keynotespeaker @flyingless, which gave us a ton of leads to explore (and prepared our university for the upcoming crisis as a bonus benefit). 2/n
I wrote about this early in the crisis, and so did others that visited the event. I want to highlight a couple of important articles. First there is the Lorentz Centre, which innovates scientific workshops formats and is housed at Leiden University lorentzcenter.nl/virtual-worksh… 3/n

If anyone can help, we would be very grateful. We are seeing even more of an increase in requests due to CERB ending and transitioning over to EI. (Which many do not qualify for, yet we hope help in any form arrives soon)
If you are in need, please head over to our website: HarvestHillsCaresCalgary.Ca and click on the contact us now button.
If you can please consider donating we accept Etransfers and PayPal at the moment but will have more options in the near future.

Today was a little emotional coming back to twitter.

Earlier this year, I wrote this short, never published eulogy for my good friend @insideHPC.

Now seems like the most appropriate time as ever to share with everyone.

Life will *never* be the same without him.
Rich was our community.

Open, honest, candid and relevant. Rich infected everyone around him with laughter and insight. You just couldn’t help yourself, he was seriously hilarious.

Example,
A bunch of us would sit and joke late into the night as Rich would be holding court with his friends, all of us sat around Rich, soaking up his lovely stories.

Many stories revolved around planning a so called secret “Council of Elders” for high performance computing...

A THREAD on heat.
A personal view on how cities should react on #ClimateChange and #heatisland effect.
#Proportion
Most important is proportion. The hotter the climate the narrower the streets are. There are reasons why streets around the mediterranean are narrower than they are typically in germany.
There is an unlucky proportion where the buildings are not narrow enough to provide shade but too close together to let the heat radiate away at night. It depends on orientation, latitude, weather at night. Not easy. Historical streets have mostly good proportions by trial.

Hey, independent #publishers: There’s so much more for you than Substack, Patreon and e-courses.

Here’s a quick look at the buzzwordy “#membership” and “#community-building” toolkit, which has increasingly sophisticated tools relevant to journo use cases.

✨ L o n g thread… 👀
1. *Are you looking to build a publication and online journo community?* Where to start!? 🧐

The impressive @DefectorMedia launch shows off the capabilities of @tryPico, which is a simple platform you can plug into your favorite CMS for email signups and registration walls.
Pico stands out for its flexibility for metered paywalls, logins, hosting paid + free newsletters side by side, lead-generating pop-ups, etc. I love using it with @Webflow. It’s also ideal for, ummm, WordPress.

Best of all, it’s driven by a CRM, with helpful audience insights.

Should I say finally ? or better late than never ?
But yes! after ignoring Punekars for 4+ months Hon. CM @OfficeofUT ji finally visited #Pune and conducted a meeting with elected representatives and administration to review the on ground situation of the #COVID19 Pandemic (1/n)
In the review meeting I shared both my concerns and suggestions for more effectively dealing with the pandemic in #Pune in the weeks to come. From stringent monitoring of timelines for the 3 new COVID Care Centers to re-framing testing, hospitalization & treatment protocols(2/11)
I reminded the Hon. CM, DyCM and all the heads of administration that #Pune is already 25-30 days behind the curve when it comes to setting up Jumbo #Covid Care Centers, and every day is costing us lives that could have been saved with a better medical infrastructure. (3/11)

1/ The lives of people with #disabilities aren't worth less, even now. #COVID19 has turned us into fearful things. #Quarantined in our homes, with the #pandemic touching every part of our lives, and any sense of ‘normalcy’ obliterated, this fear has us lashing out at one another.
2/ Me? I’m just terrified for my mother, in critical condition following complications from #coronavirus. Twice she has come so close to death that my own heart stopped in anticipation, the breath seizing in my lungs as my world prepared to end with her.

#COVID19 #ruralhealth
3/ My entire family contracted #COVID. My father spent 5 days in the hospital before being discharged; my sister and I struggled through from home. 3 weeks in, we’re making it, but none of us is fully well.
