“US-#China Competition Enters the Decade of Max Danger: #Policy Ideas to Avoid Losing the 2020s”

My latest with Gabe Collins @BakerInstitute!

As #PRC/#CCP power peaks over this decade, #Xi may seek #Taiwan as historic prize.

To protect their security & rules-based order, US/Allies must mobilize immediately to deter aggression.

The mission is vital, the stakes are high, & the clock is ticking. Image
US/Allies/#Taiwan now face “#DecadeOfDanger” w/ peaking #Xi/#CCP/#PRC as #China has extreme version of “S-Curved #slowdown.”

Xi’s risk acceptance will likely be amplified by his track record of largely-uncountered revisionist actions vs. neighbors & RBO.…

Report on #familychildcare supply is here!🎉 FCC educators face many barriers to entry & sustainability. The biggest? #ECE #policy challenges. But their strengths keep them going. Buckle up 🧵(1/n)

#solvechildcare #earlyedchat #childcare @JulietBromer
In this exploratory mixed method study, we asked 179 current/former regulated #familychildcare educators (FCCEs) across 4 states (CA, FL, MA, WI) about their experiences entering, staying in, and/or leaving the field, and we learned A LOT. (2/n)
ON LEAVING: 30 former FCCEs (small N, exploratory!) shared intersecting challenges w/ systems, economics, working conditions, & personal factors that contributed to their decisions to close their businesses (pre-COVID). Most mentioned at least 2/3 of the core challenges. (3/n)

An example of why #pandemic #parenting #care during #Covid is particularly challenging. 3 days ago, my toddler started acting funny and slept terribly (up crying at least once/hour). The next morning, his nose was streaming, his voice was hoarse, and he coughed intermittently. 1/
In pre-covid times, this would be unremarkable. In covid times, this meant that on Sunday AM, even though he wasn't particularly ill, we realized we wouldn't be able to bring him to care during the week without a negative test. We cancelled social plans made weeks earlier. 2/
We also cancelled dinner with my ailing father, who was very disappointed and also confused. I promise to drive a plate of dinner up to his house instead. I feel badly that he spends so much time alone these days, but I also can't bring covid to a senior living community. 2.5/

For the Love ❤️ of @JaniceDean 🙏🏼✌🏽🌹…
@GovKathyHochul Please trace the entire sequence of decisions. This also affects other states’ Governors using Dubious Powers to Direct Patient Flow in the Healthcare System.
The State Governors’ Actions were Contrary to All Precautions Nursing Facilities have in place for Influenza, another Highly Contagious Annual Virus deadly to Elders, Vulnerable People. If I was the Director of Nursing I would have Refused the order! Why Didn’t Anybody Refuse? 🤨
@MedicareGov @NYStateHealth @CDCgov @NYNHCARE @anajoy82121266 @ANANursingWorld @MedicareGov When Nurse or Nurse Aide reprimanded for breaking rules, How can This Chain of Command Not Be Scrutinized? Should Never Happen Again. #eldercare #LongTermCare Fin @threadreaderapp #unroll

September is #HealthyAgingMonth! All NYers should be able to age in place with dignity, & in their communities. As a caregiver for my mom who is living with Alzheimer’s disease, I know firsthand the challenges facing seniors & caregivers & how they’ve been exacerbated by COVID-19 Image
I’m running for City Council because I want to ensure that this city does all it can to support a care economy that is made up of mostly women, people of color, and immigrants. More here from @CaringAcrossGen:
There is so much more to #HealthyAging than simply growing old — safe, affordable housing without fear of deed theft or displacement; accessible & adequate healthcare; & an industry of care workers with real protections for the very folks we rely on to provide compassionate care.

ICYMI Thread (properly threaded): I have a new piece @Harpers that I hope you’ll read. We all have elders we love and care for—I wrote this for them. The story is about elder couples across the country who are ending their lives together.… 1
The deaths fall across a broad spectrum: some couples simply can’t go on; others are men assuming their wive’s consent; still others are the culminating event in domestic violence. #mercykilling #eldercare #thegooddeath 2
The story I tell for @Harpers focuses on one couple, Philip and Becky Benight, who were separated when insurance and the Office of Aging sent Becky to a nursing home. They did not want to live apart; Becky no longer wanted to live. #mercykilling #eldercare #thegooddeath 3
