i tried so hard to not make a comment about this tapi melihat QRT twit ini, ada bbrp observasi yg menarik:

- "Nuruls" itu emotionally charged. a pejorative term yg berasal dari upper (cultural) class urban women utk merujuk ke kabupatencore newly middle-class hijabi kpop-avi---
---tapi masalahnya broooo nurul is a very common name, and the associated status downgrade with regard to the name itu beneran jahat wkwk

ada anger di sini. which we can see di QRT. mbak menthel ini blunder, terus diquot-twit marah karena dipandang sebagai tribal enemy
garis culture war-nya jelas: banyak yg ga terima dipanggil nurul atau merasa terhina dengan meme "mbak janjiw" dari dulu. Anecdotal evidence gw punya.

there's a lot of repressed anger over this, cuman karena produsen-budaya itu biasanya orang2 urban, jadi susah jg untuk ngelawan

Hello Tweeple! Super chuffed to have this #paper just out in @naturesustainab ! It took 2 years, 15 institutions and 18 authors to put this together. Here's a summary 👇🧵 (0/9)

Dear Geveret Smith,

I am writing to address some concerns that you expressed in your letter about the class #holiday activities held over the past week.

First of all, I want to express that our #PublicSchool loves ALL our #students.

We have a #diverse #student body, we hold #diversity training every year, and we prioritize being good #allies to our #Christian students.

Naturally, we were surprised to receive such a long list of complaints from you about our #winter #holiday #programming, considering that we go so far out of our way to accommodate our #Christian students.

Dear Gveret O’Malley,

We received your letter of complaint about the timing of the Winter Graduation ceremony, set to be held on the second morning of Rosh Chodesh Tevet this First Day.

If we understand correctly from your letter, this date coincides with some kind of religious holiday for you, and you choose to prioritize this holiday over the celebration of your son Pattric’s scholarly accomplishments.

This date was the most convenient for everyone else; our preferred venue was not available on any other dates, and you are only family who is unable to attend due to the date. We have to consider the dates that are convenient for EVERYONE, as I’m sure you can understand.

🚀 We are live! Here is the correct streaming link for all of today's discussions and performances, starting with a panel on complex time with David Krakauer, James Gleick, Ted Chiang, and David Wolpert in a few moments (measured linearly...):

"One of the ideas we had with #InterPlanetary was, 'What would it take to make science hedonistic? And instead of telling people to do it, you'd have to tell people to STOP doing it?"

David Krakauer: "Do you have a favorite model or metaphor for #time?"

@JamesGleick: "You've already mentioned a river; that's everybody's favorite. Borges said time is a tiger. People talk about it as a thread. We ONLY talk about time in metaphors." Image

The most popular type of casino #GamestopNFT , online slots are always in high demand and this May is not an exception. With the number of software providers growing exponentially, the global market of virtual machines has never been more #DIVERSE aiming to offer something for literally. Naturally, not all of the sophisticated one-armed bandits rock and often it’s pretty hard to figure out why such a fantastic at first glance release has failed to become a worldwide favorite. Although there’s no… accounting for taste and it’s impossible to find two players that would fully agree on a list of ten best titles, some games continue to soar high for years while others have been quickly forgotten.

We are exploring the distinction between #unity and #uniformity...
हम #एकता और एकरूपता के बीच के अंतर पर गौर कर रहे हैं...
The distinction between seems to be in each word's relationship with #tolerance and #acceptance.
जहां तक हमे दिखता है, दोनों शब्दों के बीच का अंतर सहिष्णुता और स्वीकृति के साथ उनके संबंध में पता चलता है।
#Uniformity is about being alike, with less room for our #differences. We can see that it has relevance in some places, such as setting up structures for organising things.

Thank you @IWS_Network for giving me the opportunity to share my #story 💜 ! This a part of Voices Without Frontiers program… #IWS #WomenInSTEM #VoicesIWS #ecology #conservation #biodiversity
I was born in #saopaulo, #Brazil’s largest city, very different from the #Amazon Rainforest & Rio! See me and a #samauma, the most famous Amazon tree 🌳
Also me & @IsabelaHissa in front of Sao Paulo’s #MASP (Modern Art Museum) & me and my mom in #Rio! #VoiceIWS @IWS_Network Image
I can say I lived in a great #rainforest because Sao Paulo & most of the coast of Brazil are in the Atlantic Forest 🌴🌺🐍. It is one of the 34 world’s #hotspots of #biodiversity, with more than 1500 plant species and 90% of original area loss. #VoiceIWS @IWS_Network Source: https://www.e-educa...

‘The Trojan Horse Scandal and the Problem of Equalities in Britain Today’.

The event examined the scandal from a broad range of perspectives, engaging with debates on #equalities, #liberalism, and #Britishness.…
It also provided an opportunity to discuss and generate a dialogue about the significance of the 'Trojan Horse’ scandal and the duty placed on schools after the scandal to promote Fundamental British Values (FBV) in the promotion of #democracy.
Speakers analysed how both are reproducing narratives of racial discrimination & inequalities in a context that is informed by minoritising communities, #problematising specific religious #values, & essentialising the signification of social, religious, & cultural identities.

Losing the best leader I’ve had today, so sharing a few lessons she taught me (not an exhaustive list). 9 lessons for 9 months:
1 - Always. Choose. People.
When you act to stand up for your values and for other people, everything else falls into place. It’s really as simple as caring about people.
2 - Understand people.
Get to know your team as humans and co-workers – what are their hobbies, how was their weekend, what are they good at, what do they enjoy doing, what do they hate, how do they need/like to be supported. The best leaders adapt to their teams.

#Primer on #Ethiopian Politics

#Unitarist Vs #Federlaist

- Has little to do with level of #decentralisation of power ordinarily associated with these notions

A critical mass of Ethiopians support #federalism-incl most, if not all, forces within ruling party - incl Abiy - 1
For #ethnonationalists, I believe, any politics based on individual #equality (citizenship or republican politics) is #Unitarist - so #Nigeria, #Kenya (which ban ethnic parties), #Germany and #UnitedStates are Unitary, regardless of their robust federal/devolved structures - 2
What ethnonatioanlists consider #federalist is actually politics based on #ethnicity - (which goes beyond ethnic federalism) - much like Arend Lijphart's prototypical #consociational system - so soemthing like #Belgium and #BosniaHerzegovina, but for 80+ ethnic groups – 3

Excited about new report w/Natalie Geismar: We believe a thriving #rural America is possible & central to America’s future. So we took a close look @ effectiveness of federal rural policy. Lots of takeaways on ways to #DoRightByRural. Thread👇1/…
Mindset shift needed by policymakers: #rural America more #diverse demographically & economically than most think. More than 1/5 Black & brown; significant entrepreneurialism; major service economy; less than 6% employed in ag. cc @urbaninstitute 2/…
A #rural agenda is integral to a #racialequity agenda – see @gbenga_ajilore @KatrinaEBadger.

And #rural will be central to successful #ClimateChange strategies w/large investments in clean energy infrastructure & shifts in food production. 3/…

Thinking back to my #MBA class on #Leadership, discussing how #cultural #context shapes #decisions.

The #professor presented a scenario:

‘A 50-year old man and his son are driving down the Mass. Pike when they meet with an accident.

They are rushed to the hospital. The chief surgeon, who was the only one on duty at the time, looked at the bodies and exclaimed – “I can’t operate; he is my son.” A hospital convention prevented doctors to operate on immediate relatives.’

“What do you think is going on here?” The professor asked this #culturally #diverse class.

There were various answers in the room.

I’m hanging on the couch with a coffee and I want to tell you about some recently merged work that @MalvikaSharan and I have been considering for many months: how to best acknowledge contributors to @turingway.… #AcknowledgeAllTheWork
You’ll know that we’re super into #Diverse and #Inclusive communities at @turingway. We really want everyone to leave feeling empowered and like they contributed in whatever way they were able. We’re here to support learning in all directions. #AcknowledgeAllTheWork
But there are also risks to the project if we do NOT build that inclusive atmosphere. If someone writes a chapter and then others are uncertain about whether they can / should edit it, we can’t benefit from the readers seeing how the work can be improved #AcknowledgeAllTheWork

Attending @FboroFriday, we're inspired by #aerospace industry leaders and know one thing for certain: the future of aerospace is all about collaboration 🤝

Thanks for having us #FIAConnect!

After an insightful week at @FIAFarnborough, we wanted to share a few of our highlights:
We really enjoyed the #sustainability in #aerospace session: Dr Cristina Garcia-Duffy, Head of Technology – Strategy and Integration at @UKAeroInstitute, shared the ATI market outlook and the aircraft that will be coming into the market between 2020 and 2040+ ✈️🌱
Adefunke Adeyemi @IATA#25by2025 ensures better female representation in senior roles. We wanted an intentional approach from the industry and for the c-suite to walk the talk. At a 2019 EU #aviation event, 30 CEOs of 30 #airlines committed to the initiative" #WomenInAerospace

On April 23, 2020, @Harvard_Press tweeted the below racist and evocative picture about #Hinduism and #Hindus to promote a talk by @ajanthasub with @tmkrishna @BIC_Blr.
Picture shows a #Hindu religious figure grinding a mill stone, conjuring up a devilish figure and crushing black figurines or throwing them into fire (one figure is even seen holding the religious figure's foot).
@Harvard_Press failed to to review the contents of the link. Interestingly, the picture is not even from the book and was used specifically to promote the book and the lecture.

5am thoughts: One of the challenges for men in #leadership positions in #tech who want to increase #inclusion and #diversity in our orgs, is that first we need to first recognize our own #privilege before knowing what conscious actions to take in our orgs & company-wide... 1/14
First, credit to my colleague @bjohnso5y. Her post on how to be a better #ally for #womenintech emphasized the mechanism of #recognition (e.g. crediting women for their ideas in public spaces). The goal of better #allyship inspired this thread... 2/14…
In the sphere of political debate, you’ll often hear white people (especially men) arguing they don’t have privilege and don’t get special treatment. "Everything’s a meritocracy!" "Nobody 'gave' me anything!" - Nothing to see here, move along… 3/14

The Fourth Estate is like the rest of society: #diverse and complex, yet immensely important. Several #Media outlets continue to operate with integrity, passion for truth, and professional excellence…yet…
Sadly, many well-known #news brands have fallen prey to the same desire for eyeballs and subscriptions that infects so many @YouTube vloggers and @Instagram “celebrities”.
Posting disingenuous and misleading #clickbait headlines to drive traffic or whipping up non-stories into narratives designed to inspire outrage and division is something we have come to expect from the current political Administration.

Thread: Building an ethical foundation for the AI-driven future @PeriscopeData
First question: What value do you bring to your org. as a data professional? #techskills #businessoutcomes -- likely responses. Then Facebook & #unintendedoutcomes #ODSCWest
Industry starting to confront #ethics in terms of daily applications of #AI algorithms. #Bias based on data - in the case of courts, potentially hundreds of years of biased decisions as part of the training set.
"I'm just an engineer" not an appropriate response. People using #AI products might not understand what or how decisions and predictions are being made, but will be making real world decisions based on them. YOU and your team might be the only ones who do.
