I was born and raised in the beautiful city of #Curitiba, southern #Brazil!
This region is famous for being cold and cloudy (yes it can be cold in Brazil!).
It is also famous for its very endemic and beautiful #Araucaria pine trees. #voicesIWS @IWS_Network @500womensci /1
#Actions speak louder than words! I am thankful for my parents for being who they are. Both always showed love for Nature, different interests and #curiosity! So no wonder by observing them I grew up to be a very curious girl who really loved Nature. #voicesIWS @IWS_Network /2
During High School I became fascinated by the #mendelian #genetics classes and the work of #gregormendel! I also loved studying animals, ecosystems and climate so the obvious choice for me in University (@PUCPR_oficial ) was BIOLOGY!! @IWS_Network #womeninscience #voicesIWS /3

There were some clear themes coming out of the presentations at #productized in Lisbon yesterday about #prodmgmt and #design and #culture. Here is a brief summary of what I heard:
1/ Very little mention of #agile as a problem or a choice. It was just assumed by all speakers that this is the way everyone works.
2/ Solving problems, not implementing solutions.

(THREAD) When my son was in Gr 10 he brough home, To Kill a Mockingbird. I was angry -my child, was reading a text of a past romanticized by some, even tho it was riddled with #racism. I wondered how many texts he would read that looked like him. But he had to read that- why?
I had asked many times for a reading list of books theyd have in their English class. I asked if the texts looked like them, reflected their experiences bc #IdentityMatters. I never could get an answer. Replies included, it was a #Classic but y'all know #Classics aint #Neutral
Of course, the response when we have these convos - "Y'all want to Censor...". Funny how "#freeSpeech" and "#censorship" always come up when issues of #equity are being discussed. That our children shouldn't be exposed to #racism and #trauma they live EVERY. SINGLE. DAY

Company Culture Is ...

- What you say, and how often you say it
- What, when, and how you celebrate
- The losses and missteps you acknowledge, and how you respond
- How you behave when the chips are down
- What you fight for at all costs
- The corners you cut

(1/4) #culture
- Who you hire, promote, and compensate, and who you fire
- Who you “smoke out” until they leave the organization
- The worst behavior you accept and the best behavior you reject
- The voices you amplify, and the voices you suppress

(2/4) #culture
- When you encourage conformity, and when you promote diversity
- How you handle disagreements and differences in opinion
- How and where you spend your time and money
- What gets discussed out in the open, and behind closed doors

#MarissaShen an innocent, beautiful life lost due to negligence & progressive left fantasy

Courage Canada.

"They shouldn't be crossing the border if we don't know who they are"

"This has nothing to do with race"

"This is about our land being safe"

#cdnpoli #NationalSecurity
Anti national security lone wolf.

#MarissaShen #cdnpoli #NationalSecurity #culture
Misguided globalist progressives & heavy denial. Even the tragic rumoured sexual assault & murder 1 charge of a precious child isn't enough to pierce through the fantasies.

The innocent pay the price every time.

1/ What's wrong with #lawfirm compensation? Let @jordan_law21 count the ways.As predicted 🔮 (by me, about what I was going to do 😇), a #tweetstorm. First the link: law21.ca/2018/09/how-co…
2/ Next, my favorite #micdrop 🎤 quote: "law firms incentivize their lawyers to act in ways that are counter-productive to lwayers' happiness, clients' satisfaction and the firms' effectiveness." and 💥goes the 🧨-- more #truthbombs follow.
3/ 💯 agree that legacy compensation systems (and the attendant infrastructure of #tech, #process, #policy, governance as well as resulting #culture) emphasizes #lawyer effort over #client outcomes (namely, the billable hour). BUT I add here: what would be a better #alternative?

the tyrant. we saw this in #antonio #maino's NAC, which turned into law the RTE, and was about to turn into law the Communal Violence Bill, which essentially made all Hindus criminals. expect the roman christian behavior as in this excerpt if @incindia comes back to power. 👇

At the start of this week, I said that I've grown up between 2 #cultures. I imagine many of you navigate more than one #culture 2. So what are some of your experiences navigating more than one culture? #navigating2cultures

For example, for me....
At work, I use cutlery; at home, I eat rice & curry with my hands. That is the best way to eat rice and curry. Eating with cutlery just doesn't cut it. You can't mix the food in the same way. & while we're myth busting, we NEVER eat just 1 curry with rice!!!

#navigating2cultures
My mum once sent me to school with coconut oil in my hair - because in Sri Lanka, coconut oil is thought to be good for hair. Of course, everyone laughed at me and I never did that again! Now, I see coconut oil is in lots of hair products...🤔 #navigating2cultures

10 Scientific reasons behind why you should visit Temple.
Paying visit to temples are not only to get blessing but to get a calm and better mind set. The following scientific reasons are the actual purpose of visiting the temple according to the Hindu script.
1-Location and Structure of Temple:
Temples are found at a place where +ve energy is available abundantly. The idol of God is set in core center of the temple, known as “Garbhagriha” or “Moolasthanam”. It's the place where earth’s magnetic waves are discovered to be most extreme.
2-Removing Footwear Before Entering Temple:
In olden days, temples were built in such a way that floor at center of temple were good conductors of these +ve vibrations allowing them to pass through our feet to body. Hence it's necessary to walk bare footed while u enter temple.

Myth #5 (last of today): Language does NOT alter your cognition/inherent world view.

Of course, #language effects your life the same way your #culture, home town, or environment does. But what it doesn't do is give you non-linear time powers like in #TheArrival.
A great (not jargon-y) episode of @lexiconvalley talks about this with @JohnMcWhorter as the host:

Don't have time for a podcast? Check out this @washingtonpost article specifically about the movie and the hypothesis:washingtonpost.com/national/healt…

(1) Another thing Communists did to us:

- They wanted us to do things only for ourselves, and actually look upon others with animosity.
- They wanted us to destroy the family, replacing it with slavery to the government.
(2) Look at the above two points, and figure out what that does to inheritance.

- They convinced baby boomers that their children should have to suffer, not have any financial means to live or own a home or have children or have a family.
(3) They actually convinced baby boomers that it is BAD to give their children inheritance. BOTH @AandGShow's Joe AND Jack complained as soon as they read it's becoming more common for children to consider it theft when their parents spend too much on unnecessary costly items.

The Creators of the World’s Misfortunes
by Joseph Goebbels
"One could not understand this #war if one did not always keep in mind the fact that International J//ewry stands behind all the unnatural forces that our united enemies use to attempt to deceive the world and keep humanity in the dark.
"It is, so to speak, the mortar that holds the enemy coalition firmly together, despite its differences of class, ideology, and interests.

1) Un petit guide sur les #SocialJusticeWarriors (#SJW) suite aux événements de #Tolbiac et tout le marasme qui s’en est suivi, parce que je suis assez étonnée de la méconnaissance des gens en #France et sur #Twitter. Il reste central aux #US depuis quelques années. (à dérouler)
2) Car oui, comme beaucoup de mouvements culturels celui-ci nous vient directement des US et du #Canada, et met la lutte militante pour le progrès social en son centre, tjs sous le prisme d’un rapport de force à une minorité : #genre, #handicap, #racisme, #sexisme, etc…
3) Donc si t’es twittos #anglophone tu vas sûrement rigoler, parce que tu t’es déjà retrouvé embourbé dans des échanges impossibles et que tu connais exactement le sujet… Tu pourras donc passer ton chemin, car tu n’apprendras rien de spé.

THE TRUE ORIGIN OF RESTAURANTS
Thread

Centuries ago, like now, there were hostels, posadas or taverns where food was served in exchange for money, as in a thermopolium in Rome (snack-bar) where we, readers of @LRB @TwitterBooks @nytimes @NewYorker @washingtonpost, would often go
After the #fall of the #Roman #Empire in these businesses food was served in shared tables and consisted of a fixed menu, according to what was already prepared. Even the nobility, like celebrities today, would frequent when traveling.
But, when did the concept and business of restaurants truly begin?
It began with Paracelsus (1493-1541), a brilliant Swiss physician who modernized medicine with rational clinical judgment and changed the way we eat in the #Western #world.

Benarkah Budaya Melayu Membataskan Kemajuan Seorang Melayu?

Saya tidak dapat mengikuti wacana penuh Bicara Wawasan 2020 di mana panelnya adalah Tun Dr Mahathir sendiri. Saya hanya sempat membaca laporan dari akhbar yang saya kira tidak meletakkan sepenuhnya ucapan dari Tun.
Namun begitu saya tertarik untuk memberi pendapat tajuk dan kandungan berita tersebut seperti di dalam gambar yang saya kepilkan di bawah. Kritikan Tun M saya terima dengan lapang dada, cumanya saya kurang bersetuju bila kritikan itu dikaitkan sebagai Budaya Melayu.

1/ #THREAD Ah, teeny tiny demographical instance of something, hastily wound up to a coy, careful kind of un-endorsement of something else, even uses paper in a medical / scientific journal to try substantiate this un-endorsement placement #Beware #BullAtWork How 'well-connected'
2/ and how reminiscent of a certain type of anti-vaccination trolling / disinformation.😬 #Questions such as: A/what percentage of the population actually use the product B/ what percentage of that specific demographic have been injured seriously, in a clinical sense or in the --
3/ particular mode described in the, eh, 'article' ? C/ So even if as seems likely this only verifiably happened to a tiny % of users,& even if the argument that it is all just public knowledge/public info. is applied so it appears to be, lets say for the heck of it, 'authentic',

I could say so much here at this point about how &why the systems underlying running of all social media platforms are of limited use #human
