@SixthTone 🧵3/ #躺人 lying flat

#LyingFlat is becoming a social movement of young people rejecting the #CCP's "Chinese Dream" 中国梦.

Xi Jinping announced this ideal in late 2012 to lead China's “great rejuvenation.”

#PIP Western(& Indian?) foreign policy experts and foreign trade negotiators, believe that the economics of merchandise trade, is the same as the economics of patents/intellectual property and the economics of the digital economy, because they are clueless about the last two! p

Having read through the #UK #IntegratedReview a few personal observations from a 🇩🇪 perspective, focusing on just a few key points - short thread
Very good to see how clearly the #IntegratedReview prioritizes #Europe & the #UK role via #NATO
Also good to see that cooperation with the #EU in the area of #security is specifically referenced.
The #IntegratedReview appropriately highlights #geopolitical & #geoeconomic shifts and the importance of the #IndoPacific while being realistic about what #UK #capabilities can achieve in that part of the world (emphasis on diplomacy & partnerships).

Little is known about the interests of the #doctors, #scientists, and #academics on whose advice the #UK #government relies to manage the #pandemic.
Attempts to discover more are frequently thwarted, finds Paul D Thacker
As the number of UK deaths caused by #covid-19 reached 50 000 in early Nov, England enacted a second national lockdown to control the epidemic.
Boris Johnson’s government put these measures into action after months of controversial and sometimes confusing policies,
including the “rule of six,” regional tiered controls, and directions to “stay alert.”
At the same time, the #govt has faced mounting questions about #procurement decisions, from personal protective equipment #PPE to #testing kits, from #vaccine deals

4/ag Here's a solution for "experts on everything" looking for political solutions: Central Govt should #abolish the #APMC Act and the #ECA, along with the 3 new agri laws, and leave every State to make own Agricultural laws. Then they'll be responsible/ accountable to voters!
5/ag Subject to proviso, that States cannot stop inter-state trade in agricultural goods, which framers of the constitution, correctly put under Union Govt's purview. Nor can States force CG to take any action which is responsibility of State, nor obstruct anything in Union list!

Privacy and competition top today’s policy agenda particularly in tech. Google & Facebook capture 56% of global digital ad spend. They also face regulatory scrutiny on both sides of the Atlantic on both counts.
But, could #privacy policy actually reduce #competition? 2/
How? Large firms could have more resources to comply with the law or leverage firm recognition to better obtain consumer consent.
New: If privacy law pushes firms to limit data vendors, firms may favor retaining large vendor that offer better products (or compliance). 3/

Time for a very short story !!

Once a 14 year old kid, who used to deliver newspapers, told his family friend that if he doesn't become a millionaire by the age of 30, he'll jump of the tallest building of his city !

Sadly, he didn't become a millionaire by 30 ! 😔

I have been listening to Biden's recording with Civil Rights leaders and his tone and bs was a trip I wasn't ready for.

The disrespect was absolutely unacceptable. No self-respecting African-American should be allowing old White dudes to talk to them this way. (THREAD)
The other thing that irritated me was his demand that we work with White Hispanics. We GOTTA do it.

Nobody is else is told they have to work with other racial groups except African-Americans. No other racial groups are ridin for us!

I'll show you. 2/
The NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) advocates for all people of colors. It was founded by Blacks, but looked out for all the Brown immigrants that came here AFTER us.

Black folks fought for and protected the rights of all non-White people.

“A great product coupled with a great pricing plan is a force to be reckoned with.” – @Chargebee

Here are 5 of the biggest pricing lessons @ProcessStreet has learned since we launched in 2013 🚀 process.st/saas-price-mod… (A thread)
1. Pricing is a never-ending process ♻️

The only way to keep up with the fast-paced nature of the #SaaS industry, speedy advances in #Technology, and stiff competition is to constantly experiment with, and test, your SaaS #PriceModel. process.st/business-proce… (1/6)
2. Pricing is about perception 👀

Think about #Perception when creating your next pricing hypothesis. How are your #Customers likely to perceive what you’re offering? sixteenventures.com/pricing-strate… (2/6)

A few thoughts about #competition.
1. Competition could be seen as the defining value of our times. It is the touchstone of conservative/radical right politics. Even formerly left parties now treat it as a holy virtue. But ...
Thread/
2. ... when you look at what conservatives do, rather than what they say, you discover that competition is strictly bounded. Competition is good – as long as *we* win.
3. If they really believed in competition, they would immediately abolish both private education and inheritance. Everyone would start from the same position, and the people who are most adept at particular tasks would win.

We found inadequate documentation in a number of cases on how the risks of procuring suppliers without competition had been mitigated. For procurements
where there is no competition, it is important that awarding bodies document very
clearly why they have chosen a particular supplier and how any associated risks
from a lack of #competition have been #identified and mitigated. This is to ensure
public trust in the fairness of the procurement process. We found examples
where departments failed to document fully the consideration and management
of risks, such as the justification for using emergency procurement, why
particular suppliers were chosen, or how any potential conflicts of interest had
been identified and managed.

1) Ce texte est une bombe 💣 #StopLPPR

Est-ce une fable ?
Ou bien peut-on supposer que le sabotage du #CNU par la #LPPR/#LPR était programmé ?

👉 @VidalFrederique et @Hingrayj ont-iels ensemble fait un cadeau à @vpecresse, parachevant sa #LRU ?

academia.hypotheses.org/27886
2) Pourquoi procéder ainsi pour court-circuiter le #CNU ?

Introduire ces attaques dans l’avant-projet de #LoiRecherche c’était perdre les quelques syndicats qui ne demandaient qu’à soutenir tout le reste, mais qui n'auraient pas pu accepter ça. Malin !

#StopPrécarité #StopLPPR
3) Annoncer les attaques contre le #CNU, c’était surtout se contraindre à une justification dans l’étude d’impact, puis devant le CNESER, puis devant le @lecese (bon, quoi qu'il en soit @VidalFrederique s'est assise sur son rapport), etc.

Donc, on dissimule !

In his masterclass about crafting an effective pitch deck @YourStoryCo’s #TechSparks2020, @P_Kemps highlights some aspects that seem trivial but are important, some that are easy to miss, and some that mustn’t be missed. A 🧵-
1/ The title is as important as anything else in your deck. It should define your company in a single declarative sentence and can also be about your #mission & #vision.
2/ Tell a #story to explain your #purpose, tying your idea to a broader shift taking place in the world. Your company’s reason to be should be based on unique market/consumer insights driven by one or many of these changes 👇
