In this thread 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼students @MQLinguistics @Macquarie_Uni share what they've learned so far (1st quarter of semester)

Favorite facts about #languages and #cultures in #contact
In #Arabic we say: “Footprints indicate trajectory”, but I never thought that a wheel would reveal a culture. This is how #cultures can be traced through #languages. The reading made me feel like I am solving a puzzle more than exploring languages.
Think twice before starting to learn #English, cuz you’ll end up learning even more -- #German and #French, and more …
After all, it was the Anglo-Saxons and Normans who influenced the vocabulary!!
English is a mixed #language!

Peut-on mieux anticiper la dynamique hospitalière de #COVID19 à l’aide des données numériques de mobilité ?

Des travaux de Christian Selinger (@ird_fr) avec @samuel_alizon (@CNRS) et @choisy_marc (@OUCRU_Vietnam) sont publiés en août sur ce sujet.

ijidonline.com/article/S1201-…

1/N
Grâce à un partenariat avec l’opération @DataForGood_FR de @FacebookFR et l’@umontpellier, l'équipe a pu valider un modèle qui vise à expliquer les variations des nombres quotidiens d’admission et de décès à l'hôpital pour #COVID19.

dataforgood.fr

2/N
L’originalité de l’approche réside dans le modèle et les données utilisées.

@FacebookFR donne accès à des données de #colocalisation entre 2 personnes, plus appropriées pour une épidémie car reflètant un #contact (et non juste la position d'une personne).

#COVID19 🇫🇷 [Thread] 1/n : 2020 Vs 2021 :
L'année 2020 avait déjà commencé très mal... Virus à Wuhan, #Pandemie Mondiale annoncée par l'#OMS et, c'est là que tout commence pour la #France :
1- Buzin : Le Virus restera à Wuhan, il ne rentrera pas en France...
On commençait le déni
2/n :
2- L'OMS annonce le 28/02/2020 que seules des mesures Nationales Fortes peuvent aider à contenir la Pandémie.
=> La France décide le 29/02/20 d'interdire les rassemblements de +5000 pers. en milieux clos. C'est tout.
"gagner du temps pour mieux se préparer" disent-ils...
3/n :
3- Les #masques : Le 24/01 la DGS demande à la SPF d'acheter 1,1M de FFP2, car "nous n'avons pas de stock stratégique"...
=> Nous envoyons 800K masques chir en Chine!
=> Il faut 40M de masques/sem...
=> Fin Février le Gvt Cde 200M

🪞Dans cette scène de l'épisode spécial d'#Euphoria, plusieurs internautes ont remarqué que l'actrice au premier plan n'est CLAIREMENT pas Hunter Shafer, que l'on voit pourtant dans le reflet... Allez hop, petit tour d'horizon des techniques du cinéma pour filmer des miroirs ⬇️
Bon, tout d'abord la base. Un miroir, ça reflète tout... y compris la caméra et l'équipe de tournage, ce qui n'est généralement pas souhaitable vous en conviendrez. Exemple dans #Titanic (oui les vitres ça marche aussi) :
La plupart des films contournent tout simplement le problème, soit en évitant de mettre des surfaces réfléchissantes dans leurs décors (c'est vrai ça, pourquoi se compliquer la vie ?), soit en filmant les miroirs avec un angle permettant de cacher la caméra.

(1/9) This #COVID__19 crisis is accompanied by surprising lack of #commonsense & knowledge with statements making no sense at all. Detrimental for confidence of the public in #scientific #research. Put in a few simple words in this thread. #coronavirus #Corona Image
(2/9) Number 1: Contradicting statement: many experts doubt role of #aerosols in #covid_19 mass infection but advise to apply good #ventilation. Contradictio in terminis. Ventilation ONLY affects the #aerosol route, nothing else...
#COVID19 #coronavirus #Corona #nonsense
(3/9) Number 2: Wrong statement: "#Contact #sports #outside are ok but not #inside". Inside vs outside in terms of contact makes no difference, this only affects #aerosols. Simple: if you #spit in face of other person you can infect him/her equally in/outside. #football #soccer Image

As #COVID19 cases are found to spread, #Melbourne (city of ~5 million) tries to contain them by going into #Lockdown.
(The interview features the idea of a dedicated #Quarantine building - that would actually help, I guess)...
"People acting as if the pandemic was over was 'not the answer, it is part of the problem' ".

"The virus had leaked from postcodes already under the stay-at-home orders to other parts of #Melbourne."
(and beyond, it is feared).
Due to #Melbourne's outbreak, neighbouring South Australia is about to completely close it's borders to #Victoria.

(Nearly) no exceptions. And those essential few who are allowed in, will have to wear facemasks the entire time...

Vorpommern-Greifswald district (where rejections of #Gütersloh residents took place, yesterday)
has specific rules:
"Those who return from international risk areas (out of Germany) or whose Corona-Warning App has alerted them, need to report to authorites"
kreis-vg.de Image
In fact, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern's Corona-ordinance really prohibits entry of people from international risk areas AND german risk areas as well.
It's just not prominently featured on their websites.

(Overlooked that myself, hence deleted earlier tweet)

#IMMUNI: IL THREAD DEFINITIVO

L'app italiana per il #ContactTracing è quasi pronta: ecco un riassunto finale dei punti salienti emersi in questi mesi, per aiutare a capire e decidere se usarla:

1⃣ EFFICACIA
2⃣ EFFICIENZA
3⃣ RISCHI
4⃣ IMPLICAZIONI

(Thread lungo)

1/N ⬇️
1⃣ EFFICACIA

L'efficacia di un'app per il #ContactTracing può essere considerata in due modi:

a) Efficacia "ampia", ovvero essere una valida alternativa al #lockdown generalizzato

b) Efficacia "ristretta", ovvero essere un valido supporto nel contenimento di #Covid_19

2/N ⬇️
Anzitutto va detto chiaro che non c'è MAI stata neanche la vaga possibilità che l'uso di un'app potesse essere un'alternativa al lockdown (qui lo dice anche il capo dell'app di Singapore blog.gds-gov.tech/automated-cont…). E questo per almeno 4 ragioni pratiche.

No, Dr. Fauci! You have NO RIGHT to dangle our High Holiday Synagogue services in front of us to implement the Left’s intrusive, heinous #CCPVirus #Contact Tracing program! We have a #Constitution that protects our Freedoms of religion & assembly... forward.com/fast-forward/4…
Groups larger than 10 are banned for health & safety reasons, yet Dr. Fauci is willing to waive that for compliance with the Left’s nefarious #ContractTracing scheme! How does that protect us? IT DOESN’T—IT’S ALL ABOUT CONTROL.
This whole #ContactTracing scheme reeks of ‘Acorn,’ from years ago, and should be thoroughly investigated before implemented.

1/ I don’t know if many Americans have actually seen the numbers.
As of today, we have 74,810 #American deaths.
Total Global deaths are 265,885*
worldometers.info/coronavirus/

The #USA makes up 28.1% of ALL global deaths from #COVID19

*Without true transparency from #China

But WHY?
2/ #SARSCoV2 does not have a particular affinity for #Americans.

No.

Even Northern #Italy, who was overrun, has fought it back.
New York is almost like a separate country.
Excluding #NewYork from our data, cases in ALL other states are increasing.

nytimes.com/interactive/20…
3/ #NewYork and other countries have proven that fighting the virus is possible.
#HongKong, #NewZealand, #Korea, #Germany, #Greece, even the #CzechRepublic have stopped the spread, and all with different strategies.

Q: What does a #pandemic offensive line look like?

A: The pandemic offensive line has 5 players: #SocialDistancing, #testing, #Isolation, #contact tracing, and #treatment. The goal is to find the virus, trap it, and prevent it from finding other hosts (people) and harming them.
#Social_Distancing makes it harder for the virus to find the next host, but doesn’t tell us where the virus lives. All alone, social distancing is really the defensive line.
#Testing flags the positive cases. With Covid-19, this is very important as many positive cases are asymptomatic allowing this creepy virus to hide and spread.

#Isolation of positive cases, many of whom you would never find without testing, prevents further spread of the virus.

Excellent piece by @riptari on the devil's in the #privacy-by-design detail of #Bluetooth #ContactTracing. This 'head-to-head' is between DP-PTT & PEPP-PT

Makes you wish some in the #health arena hadn't been so badly abusing the term '#anonymised'...

And a heads-up on some of the possible features (or rather, bugs) of @NHSX's #Contact tracing app.

Makes you wish some in the #policing arena hadn't been so ridiculously overstepping their powers...

HINT: for (public) #health interventions to be #successful is dependent on factors other than just whether they #work. The two examples above illustrate (as we have been saying for quite some time now!) that one absolute fundamental is #trust.

Thread . Lots of positive energy towards #ContactTracing from the tech sector, but not sure we need more/better apps for #COVID19 #ContactTracing is much more than just maps, which we also have plenty of. Hybrid tech:human approaches are essential. #ClickandMortar
Identifying and mapping #contacts is a core goal of #ContactTracing but there are important details that cannot be scraped from passive location & interaction data such as the specific nature of the contact individuals, disease and clues about #viral load & infectious dose
These details cannot be adequately determined without collecting data that would clearly be an invasion of #privacy unless adequate #InformedConsent is utilized with EVERY subject and #contact.

El largometraje animado más antiguo que se conserva es "Las aventuras del príncipe Achmed" (1926), escrito y dirigido por la pionera animadora alemana Lotte Reiniger. Dura 65 minutos, el original estaba coloreado y empleaba una técnica de siluetas móviles que ella inventó. #cine
Las ondas en el vaso de agua fue uno de los efectos especiales más complejos de conseguir en #ParqueJurásico (1993). Tras probar muchas opciones finalmente se hizo haciendo vibrar una cuerda de guitarra bajo el coche.

Enormously excited about my TV debut tonight on #Contact for @Discovery (check your listings!).

And yeah I want to talk about it a LOT. But…

I need to take this moment to get something off my chest about mass murder and the weaponizing of history.

THREAD 1/x
In the past days, white supremacists have murdered dozens of people. Among the texts that inspired this violence is the racist manifesto “Might Is Right or The Survival of the Fittest,” published in 1896 under the pseudonym “Ragnar Redbeard.” 2/x
The shooter at the Gilroy Garlic Festival mentioned the book on Instagram days before opening fire on the crowd, murdering three people and wounding many more. It is frequently cited in the alt-right circles through which other shooters have moved. 3/x
