Greetings, courageous ones. Thread alert!

So: when @jjfreydcourage isn’t busy creating amazing nonprofits, she’s lifting women up by fighting pay inequity in the courts.

(Who are we kidding: she’s always busy.)

We begin w/ Dr. Freyd’s own words: Image

In 2017, Dr. Freyd sued the University of Oregon for violating the Equal Pay Act, the Equal Protection Clause, and Title IX. For what, you ask? U of Oregon has massively, systematically underpaid Dr. Freyd for decades relative to her male colleagues. #institutionalbetrayal

Legal minds were bamboozled when a federal judge dismissed Dr. Freyd’s case in May 2019. The judge said that the pay difference was logical; for example, her male colleagues’ work is tougher bc it involves bodily fluids! (We wish we were kidding.) #institutionalbetrayal

@jmert_58 @fedagentmark @chiefaudiotech @dbongino We'll have moments of despair. That's a natural, IMPORTANT part of the cycle. Those trying 2 defeat us, 2 demoralize us COUNT on us giving up right then & there, 2 end it, too weak 2 KEEP MOVING FORWARD, too weak 2 #PUSHBACKHARD. They count on us FEEDING that defeated moment.
@jmert_58 @fedagentmark @chiefaudiotech @dbongino Yet, it's only a moment. That's what it is. A moment in the Continuum of the unfolding event... yes continuing to unfold

If we only maintain our focus UPWARD, these desolate, demoralizing feelings can and do serve to REMIND us of what we CAN and WILL accomplish. #COURAGE #GRIT
@jmert_58 @fedagentmark @chiefaudiotech @dbongino These difficult moments are NOTHING in the big scheme of our DESTINATION.
We may not know where we're going, but we know who we R= We may not know who we R, but we know where we're headed
And they both apply.
There IS #evil in this world & it seems 2 B trained right upon us.

John 7:38 New Living Translation (NLT)

38 Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, ‘Rivers of living water will flow from his heart.’

Jesus forgive us as a nation for our sins. Restore yourself in the hearts of the people and

fill them with your living waters. We ask this for your glory and for the Fathers Kingdom. In your name Jesus. Amen.

I had the chance to go to Vancouver for @NeurIPSConf, one of the biggest conference dedicated to Machine Learning and #AI.

It's was a big week, and in this thread I'll summarize what I learned there :-)
Sunday is all about the very long lines to register.

There was 13k attendees this year!

It’s also the day of the expo industry.
All big players were here. Only @nvidia was missing.

It was fun to see @ArthurIMiller at the @mitpress booth.…

It's astonishing to me that these 23 GOP House Republicans are slated to vote against impeachment on Wednesday, despite the fact that they are leaving the House after the next election.

Hard to believe that most of these Reps aren't leaving because of Trump's strong-arm tactics.
🇺🇸 Why not #DoTheRightThing and vote to impeach Trump before he does more damage to our country?

Why not?

You're leaving!

Trump cannot touch you anymore.

If you or your family are being threatened, get protection now.

🔎 Remember, when this is all over, everyone will find out what's really going on.

🔍 Vote the way you want to be remembered for your public service; NOT the way Trump wants you to vote.

🚨 #Safety #culture tweet thread 🚨

Invited by @SafetyClubUK on behalf of @SaRSociety (thanks teams !) I’ve just had a thought provoking day thinking about all aspects of safety culture, across #healthcare #aviation #defence #transport #nuclear
and more
But what did I learn ? What hit the 🎯?

Here’s a mash up of some of the best lines of the day...

✅How can you get it very right, right up to the point you get it badly wrong?❌

(Apologies for any mis-quotes @PatrickWaterso1 and others in team

✅❓Foster a questioning attitude❓✅

#safety #reliability #risk

A “never event” is an event that should never happen, in healthcare and elsewhere. And yet they do...

1/SEQUEL TWEETORIAL: Historical Perspective on PCI for Stable Ischemic Heart Disease (aka chronic coronary syndromes – I got you @ESCardio 😉), specifically looking at #COURAGE as a prelude to #ISCHEMIA.

h/t @greggstone for several slides
2/Let’s start with question… knowing what you know now, what does revascularization do for patients with STABLE coronary artery disease and angina attributable to that disease?
3/ I sure hope that you answered #1 or #2 otherwise you’ve really been imbibing a tad too much of the eloquently evangelical (E-squared) @drjohnm’s Kool-Aid of fatigue/impotence-inducing betablockers, headache-causing nitrates, and pub fund-draining ranolazine.

#Moin drüben ists definitiv ruhiger.

Die Twitter-Pause tat mir ganz gut & ich überlege mich 'ne Weile zurück zuziehen.

Aktuell ist's hier ja so, das die Anspannung wg den #Nazis bei jedem einzelnen Tweet mit schwingt. Und diese Anspannung wirkt dann auch Debatten mit. (+)
Permanent darauf zu achten, was ich schreibe, wie ich es schreibe, jedesmal meine Haltung gn #Rechts & trotzdem nicht angreifbar... das ermüdet mich.
Zumal diese #Hetz|Accounts teilautomatisiert o genau nur dafür existieren.(+)
Habe inzwischen eine Blocklist von +450k Accounts, Deep Block Chain ist auch anstrengend, weil da auch Leutz drin landen, die da nicht sein bräuchten.

Passiert, weil unscheinbare Leutz plötzlich stramm rechts sind & andere denen noch folgen, weil 'se das nicht mitbekommen. (+)

This is 6-year-old Omar Faisal. He has just recovered from a bout of pneumonia. And today, June 20, #WorldRefugeeDay he is returning to the plastic and bamboo home he shares with his #Rohingya parents & siblings in one of the world's largest refugee camps - in #Bangladesh
He is very happy as you can see from his pic.
Omar has a big challenge in front of him. Children with his condition, hydrocephaly, do not fare well if not treated early. Luckily, Omar can still talk ( he talks a lot!) and still has his sight. #WorldRefugeeDay
In #Myanmar, there was no opportunity for Omar to seek medical help. His parents even traveled to #Bangladesh when he was one but were thwarted by the large fee demanded by the hospital. Now Omar & his family are #refugees after the #Rohingya crisis of 2017. #WorldRefugeeDay

Am I allowed to be outraged by this, or does that make me "antisemitic" ?

- Video of a Palestinian child being assaulted by Israeli police this morning.
By @syedakif17

Isreali goons dressed in uniforms violating basic human rights of Palestinians 24/7.

Constitution of Israel is based on Talmud where Goyims have no rights.

If a Zionist kill anyone, he's not to be punished, he's owns gentiles.

My grandfather was a soldier in World War II. My family has a history of military service.

The normalization of racial supremacy, the encouragement of it by some political leaders as a path to power, isn’t just abhorrent, it is a threat to our peace & to our communities.

As we mark the 25th anniversary of the Rwandan genocide let me say:

- how easy it is to stoke economic fear and pair it with racial fear. We have history to prove it. We know that road.

- Canada is not immune. We must always be on guard for the small wedge that opens the door.
Atrocity may explode like a powder keg, but it’s never the big event that is the cause, that’s just the effect.

Like the frog in the pot of increasingly heating water, it’s the prejudices, hate & fear that are allowed to spread & given platforms that lead to the boiling point.

My town #Coonabarabran #Coona sits in NW of #NSW . Just North is the #Pilliga forest, to south & west #WarrumbungleNatPark & #SidingSpringObservatory. Rich farmlands surround it. But it is under threat from #climatebreakdown #schoolstrike4climate
#Coona district is in severe #drought & #waterstress our council Dam is so low that new bores had to be sunk for town’s supply. Farming families are worn down with feeding stock & stress. Paddocks are baked dry #climatebreakdown is reality #SchoolStrike4Climate
In our gardens, forests and farms trees are dying as we face our second #autumn in drought. We are reliant on bore water from the #GreatArtesianBasin to survive #climatebreakdown is a daily reality. #SchoolStrike4climate

This month I revisit #COURAGE. The ultimate conversation starter among @JAMAInternalMed readers and interventional cardiologists. #CQOSpotlight

Quick someone tweet a concerning angiogram cine and ask if anyone else would refer a specific stable CAD patient to OMT!!
𝗕𝗮𝗰𝗸𝗴𝗿𝗼𝘂𝗻𝗱: The #COURAGE investigators provide longer survival follow-up on subset of the original study cohort to evaluate how the number of coronary lesions vs. amount of ischemia is prognostic for patients with stable CAD.…
The subset of patients received both quantitative coronary angiograms (QCA) and stress (SPECT) perfusion imaging.

1] Dear World,
Tonight my heart has broken. As I look through the Twitterverse, I can smell the hated, see the seething self righteousnessof people who no longer have any compassion, dignity, moral compass or love for any human being.
2] The political turmoil in every country around the world is at a fever pitch. Left Vs Right, every shred of common sense, decency and respect afforded to us has been thrown out the widow.
To take a break from the insane world I was viewing, I took a step away & went inside...
3] I went to check on my sleeping boys to ensure they were okay....then it hit me...& it hit me like a sucker punch to the gut. What sort of world were my boys going to inherit, how could they possibly survive the onslaught of everyone telling them what they should be....

#Faith happens only when the #duality has fallen; it is not a #belief against #doubt.

When belief and doubts both have disappeared, then something happens which is faith, which is #trust.
When desiring disappears there is trust!

#Trust means moving with #life without any #expectations, #desires, demands of your own. Not #asking, not #complaining. Whatsoever happens, #accepting it with deepest #gratitude and #awareness.
Simply seeing the #reality, that the #opposite is implied everywhere, #trust happens.

It is not in any #helplessness that you #accept. It is simply the nature of #life that the opposite is implied.

Looking at the #fact, #truth, deep inside you, gives you trust..

A #data informed look at how the #human experience of #lawyering has changed over time.

Just as #clients need better #value propositions, #law firms need better business models. Meaningful #legal #transformation will occur where the two intersect.…
H/T to @augierakow @robsaccone for the post #inspirelegal 🤓 email chain that #inspired this tweetable.

(Bc I’m a tweetable factory. 🤷🏻‍♀️)
Another reaction to this @wihender post: we NEED to deal with #automation anxiety in #legal.

Legacy models of law practice aren’t built for the pace of #business and volume of #information of the #digital age.

More #hours from more #lawyers can’t be the default answer.

#Surrender doesn’t depend on the object, it is a quality that you bring into your #being. To whom you surrender is irrelevant.

Any object will do. You can surrender to a tree, you can surrender to a river, you can surrender to anything, your wife, your husband, your guru.
Even through stones, people have attained because it is not a question at all to what you #surrender.

You surrender, and that brings the whole thing, that opens the door. Surrendering, the effort to surrender brings an opening to you.
If you are open to stone, you become open to the whole existence, because it is only a question of opening. How can you be open to a stone, and not open to a tree?

The #human #order is #chaos within, a #cosmos just on the periphery, skin deep at the most
There are two types of #order in the #world: one man-made, another divine.

Man-made order is just make-believe. It is not really an order, it only hides disorder. Deep down the #anarchy continues. On the surface, you are befooled, as if there is an order.
Just the opposite is the case with the #divine order.

On the surface there is #chaos, and deep down in the depths, there is #order. On the surface, there are great waves, and the ocean is silent deep within. The center has a #cosmos in it, and the periphery has chaos on it.

1. Dear candidate for the 2019 elections in Nigeria. Aristotle described courage as the first virtue, because it makes other virtues possible. Do you have the courage to imagine a developed Nigeria, to do what is right and to work to make it reality? #democracy #courage
2. This will be the 6th set of national elections since 1999. Not much has changed. Will next year’s elections really put us on the path to development? Or should we rather hold a referendum to discuss our future? Only cowardice would make us avoid the real issues. #democracy
3. Now is the time for freedom from colonisation by those without conscience in our elite class. Only courageous leadership will tweak our constitution and stop the wanton stealing of our resources. Without courage, you won’t make a difference. Do you have courage? #democracy

I voted early 2 weeks ago & didn't vote for a single Republican. It pains me to say this, after a lifetime's career in GOP politics, but today, this moment, the only choice is to vote for Democrats.
Being quiet while the "president*" & his low travelers rain racism & anti-Semitism on our country is the same as participating directly. No policy position is worth selling your soul for hate.
Last night I reread Martin Luther King's Letter from a Birmingham Jail & was reminded of Dr. King's observation that white moderates were the greatest obstacles to achieving civil rights at that moment.

Lots of headlines @escardio re CT-FFR. 1 of most prominent is ADVANCE multicenter registry from @manesh_patelMD & colleagues using @HeartFlow. I'd like to dissect this a bit to see how excitement in a field combined with lots of industry funding can blind us to basic problems.
Team worked across 38 international sites over >2 years to collect data from N=5083 patients w/ “symptoms concerning for CAD”. They had primary endpoint of change in management plan from coronary CTA. That happened in 67% of patients. Most impressive.
Is this a valid endpoint? I contend that this is a measurement of physician psychology rather than of anything objective.
