3,000+ men and boys will die by suicide in Canada this year. Up to 80% of all suicides. And yet, only one-third of psychological services users are male.

Traditional approaches to awareness campaigns and talk therapy simply aren’t working for men. We are failing. Miserably. 1/x
I’m not a SME per se, but do have lived/living experience. First, we need targeted campaigns, shifting the language of #MentalHealth to be more “male-friendly”. Mental toughness is a skill set developed through coaching and training, rather than “counselling” or “therapy”. 2/x
There are Canadian orgs that do a decent job of #MentalHealth messaging that resonates with men, e.g., @MovemberCA, @HeadsUpGuys, and @cspyyc with their #BuddyUp campaign. And I also like @cpsdequebec’s (French). Great resources, worthy of scaling up. 3/x

New #DIY #Science video - building a very simple (but working) ribbon microphone.

For one version I use #LEGO, aluminum foil, and hard drive magnets.

Not directly from #MacGyver - but related.
BTW - this website is great for recording and analyzing simple sounds…
Here is a carbon mic using a soda can and a paper clip

Petit thread sur le fait maison (#DIY) ou pourquoi il ne faut pas faire ses cosmétiques soi-même
La principale justification du #DIY c'est "Comme ça je maîtrise tout"... et ben en fait, les mêmes devraient plutôt dire "Comme ça je ne maîtrise rien"... on explique
1/ Les formules ("recettes") mises en ligne n'ont été validées par personne... on ne sait pas d'où elles sortent... elles sont souvent des traductions plus ou moins bonnes de sites anglo-saxons

Frequently questions about type of room air filtration & if #ionization is a useful upgrade.

Nearly always, simple filtration is sufficient for most people. Study here shows a bipolar ionizer also *not* useful at reducing PM2.5. Thx @JimRosenthal4. (1/x)…
2/ "[experiments] ... suggest that operation of the ionizer unit led to a small increase in loss rates for ultrafine particles (<0.15 μm) and a small decrease in loss rates for larger particles (>0.3 μm), but with negligible net changes in estimated PM2.5 loss rates."
3/ In contrast to relative ineffectiveness of ionization technology to reduce concentration of suspended particles in a room, simple #HEPA filtration does an *excellent* job. See e.g. examples in this 🧵 showing filtration in a school classroom.

🧵1/ The #CDC update today (2/26) on "Ventilation in Schools and Child Care Programs" looks like good progress.

Details on #ventilation, #filtration, #bettermasks, w/ helpful links. Seems they're listening to @kprather88 @j_g_allen @CorsIAQ and others?…
2/ The relatively short #CDC page seems to have more succinct, yet clear #K12 guidance & connection to other pages of support.

Though I admit, I haven't digested yet fully. What are your takes? (also e.g. @jljcolorado @linseymarr @ProfCharlesHaas @Don_Milton @ShellyMBoulder)
3/ I was pleased to see early mention that "Wearing a well-fitting, multi-layer mask helps prevent virus particles from entering the air or being breathed in by the person wearing the mask."

(BTW, need for good fit implies aerosols)

Bonjour à tous :) ☕️

Tout d'abord agréablement surprise par l'enthousiasme devant mes drawing routines, mille mercis pour les retours ici ou sur @Colpizen :)

Aujourd'hui nous allons faire une petite pause des yeux pour parler de l'entretien de cet écosys-

tème qu'est le freelancing (oui c'est la mode des mots en ing)

En bref :

Pour devenir illustrateur-rice indépendant-e, point ne suffit de savoir dessiner, rêvasser au bord des rivières ou aimer les insectes.
C'est nécessaire mais pas suffisant pour en vivre.

Il est donc
vital d'être aussi à l'aise avec l'administratif, la compta, maîtriser les notions de rentabilité (vais-je pouvoir payer mon loyer, vais-je pouvoir manger à ma faim, etc)

Pour beaucoup le mythe du créatif bohême est tenace, et la désillusion forte.
Pour pas perdre le nord avant

1/ Interesting paper showing high efficacy of portable HEPA #filtration to reduce aerosol concentration in a high school classroom during use.

By very experienced German aerosol group Curtius et al.; via @ASTJournal.

With short🧵on room air filtration.…
2/ "In times when classes were conducted with windows and door closed, the aerosol concentration was reduced by more than 90% within less than 30 min. when running the purifiers (air exchange rate 5.5 ACH). The reduction was homogeneous throughout the room ..."
[note log y-scale]
3/ Figure 3: Highly reproducible reduction in aerosol particle concentration [uCPC] in a closed classroom without air purifiers (blue line) and with 3 or 4 air purifiers operating at speed 3 or 4 (max).

1/ During July 2020 many worked quickly to scramble #COVID19 prep before the Fall classes. I helped model estimated COVID #aerosol risk as @UofDenver made plans. Not allowed then, but shared now in case it can prompt discussion for Winter prep.

Doc + 🧵:
2/ A key concern at the time (& still) was #music ensemble classroom activities, b/c it was obvious early on that #COVIDisAirborne and that #choir & wind instruments were likely to present high COVID #aerosol risk.…
3/ Using my version of an aerosol #boxmodel, I calculated probability that #SARSCoV2 could infect after breathed out by someone in specific classrooms. With this I could easily investigate best prevention bang for buck. I.e. Rehearsal duration? Wait time b/n classes? Etc.

@owori_jr @URAuganda @IraUganda 📍 TIP: Vehicle Validation is supposed to be FREE, if done by yourself (seller or buyer) online. It is simply changing your log book details from the green book, to an e-book. #LogBookValidation #ThirdParty
@owori_jr @URAuganda @IraUganda 📍 TIP: It is the transfer, which is change of names in the e-log book, that officially costs sh84k (sh eighty four thousand only). But, if, like many, you have to go thru URA agents, it will cost you at least 300k! #LogBookValidation #ThirdParty…
@owori_jr @URAuganda @IraUganda lo & behold.......that you cant get #Validation complete, because the seller cannot log into his or her TIN @URAuganda account online, you part with 900k, for notices in newspapers, court ETC. Unfortunate state of affairs in this #DIY digital age!

ஒரு வழியா தள்ளி போட்டு தள்ளி போட்டு, வாஷிங் மெஷின் Solenoid Valve issue thread எழுத மனசு வந்துடுச்சு:

மொதல்ல Problem statement video (11/11/2020)

#DIY #HomeDIY #LazyCitizzen_DIY

1. படம்-1: எப்போவும் போல முதல் வேலையா Power & inlet water connections நீக்கிடனும்

2. படம்-2: விரல் & டிரில் மெஷின் சுட்டிக்காட்டியுள்ள ஸ்க்ரூக்களை கழட்டனும்

(2/9) ImageImage
3. படம்-1&2: மெதுவாக காட்டியுள்ள மாதிரி பின்மூடியை கழட்டணும்

4. படம்-3: HC78ன்னு குறிப்பிட்டுள்ளது தான் Solenoid Valve. இந்த வால்வ் தான் தண்ணி வருவதை செயல்படுத்தும் கருவி. Control System terminologyயில் Actuating Device. அதற்கு வரும் ஒயரை கழட்டிடனும்.

[#thread] Déception à la lecture de la newsletter du @CeeD_Diabete qui paraphrase l’ANSM sur les #BouclesFermées DIY. Avec +5 ans d’expérience utilisateurs les développeurs du #DIY ont ouvert la voie aux boucles commerciales 🚀


Les #BouclesFermées commerciales ne sont pas encore disponibles en France, et le seront à un public restreint. Elles le sont depuis 2 ans dans d’autres pays. Les #DT1 ne peuvent plus attendre et construisent leur propre boucle avec du matériel marqué CE.

Comparaison faite lors d’#EASD2020 ⤵️
moyenne du #TempsDansLaCible #TIR : 90% #DIY vs 70% pour les boucles commerciales.

Inspirons-nous du DIY. Faisons avancer les choses ENSEMBLE. Réduisons les complications, couteuses pour la société et en années de vie #DT1 🚀

Mbak Sri menghitung pertumbuhan ekonomi Negara sendiri koq memakai parameter Ekonomi China sih 👉 Sri Mulyani Buka Suara soal Ekonomi RI Minus 5,3% seharusnya ukurannya Indonesia ( sebab akibat ) #hening @asboedionoid
Pernyataan mbak Sri 👉 Rendahnya pertumbuhan ekonomi, kata Sri Mulyani, sudah dirasakan sejak kuartal I-2020 yang terdampak melambatnya ekonomi China 👈 coba Publikasikan Neraca Perdagangan dengan China (mana yang lebih besar Ekspor atau Impor kita) @asboedionoid #hening
Kalau Bangsa ini memiliki Ketergantungan dengan Impor Barang terlebih Barang Konsumsi maka hasilnya seperti sekarang (produsennya Modar maka Konsumennya Klenger) Oleh sebab itu jangan mengandalkan Produksi dan Ekonomi China. Indonesia harus bisa #DIY @asboedionoid #hening

سلسلة عن أهمية الرازبيري باي مقارنة بالروبوتات غير مفتوحة المصدر، ولنا سلسلة قريباً عن #الروبوتات مفتوحة المصدر بحول الله.
ولماذا يجب أن يتعلم أبناؤنا وبالذات المرحلة المتوسطة فما فوق #الرازبيري_باي؟
1-تعلم استخدام #لينكس.
2-تعلم #البرمجة بلغات مثل #بايثون و #جافا وغيرها
3.تعلم الإلكترونيات التفاعلية.
4.تعلم الأنظمة المدمجة.
5.تعلم التحكم الآلي.
6.الدخول في عالم #الذكاء_الاصطناعي
7.تعلم مهارات #DIY أو اصنعها بنفسك وإنشاء المشاريع.
8.الدخول لعالم #إنترنت_الأشياء #IOT.
9.تعلم الشبكات .
10. الدخول لعالم #الروبوت.
بالمقابل هل استفاد أبناؤنا من الروبوتات الغالية المقيده للطالب بسياسات الشركات، أم أنه مجرد Show والمستفيد الأكبر فيه المدراس ولا أعمم، مشكلتنا الرئيسية تكمن في التلقين أو ما يعرف بـ Spoon feeding.يجب أن يعاد النظر في تعليم (تلقين) الروبوت من خلال قياس الأثر الفعلي له على الطالب

1/ Q: How might I make decisions about #homerepair and #maintenance in the age of #SocialDistanacing?

A: Even if that leaky faucet or chipped paint wasn’t bothering you before, they might bother you now as you're more exposed to them. Here are some home repair guidelines:
1) What happens if this waits? Some projects will cause damage to your home if not corrected. Projects addressing leaks or #safety issues should be handled promptly. Cosmetic things, especially in enclosed spaces, should probably wait.
2) Who is doing the work? Now may be a perfect time for #DIY home projects if you have the necessary skills. This probably isn’t a great time to “experiment” with high risk DIY projects involving things like plumbing or electronics...
