A suggestion on how we can preserve mental & emotional wellbeing and help people at the same time:

Shift from "why" thinking ➡️ "what" & "how"
In other words, get task-oriented!

What do I mean? A small 🧵on how community service can also be a powerful tool for wellbeing.
/1
I was talking to a colleague today about the mental and emotional toll that #COVID19 has taken on everyone's lives.

I've posted about how we need to find those rays of light and silver linings whenever and wherever we can, to help counteract all the darkness.
Part of that involves what I call creating the light.

When all we see around us is darkness, and it's hard to see the silver linings, can we actually create some light ourselves?

I believe we can, and in doing so, provide some much needed service to those in need.

People of color (POCs) receive less feedback than their peers. Why? Managers 1) fear being perceived as racist, 2) fear hard conversations and 3) invest less time & attention on POC reports. POCs deserve better. Here are a few tips if you agree:
#1 - Fear of being perceived as racist. The (often unconscious) thought process goes: By avoiding giving feedback altogether, I will eliminate all possibility of being perceived as biased or discriminatory./2
This colorblind strategy has become especially prevalent in the era of cancel culture. People leaders are increasingly wary of interacting with employees of color. It feels like a minefield and they’d rather avoid the liability altogether./3

#diversity #equity & #inclusion jobs are some of the hottest in the country. If you’re on the market, get clarity re: where the orgs you’re interviewing with are in their evolution. Be choosy. My recs for the top 10 Qs to ask during the hiring process are below:
1) “Why me?”: I love asking this during 3rd interviews. It gives you insight into how an org has branded you, gives you a chance to clear up misconceptions & can alert you to if it's really about you or if you'll be a token. At best, it turns interviewers into your hype team.
2) “What’ve you done to prepare for this role?”: Mostly relevant to positions that are new to the org. Listen for actions taken to prep the org & key stakeholders re: the case for change. If you get blank stares in response to this Q, they ain’t ready.

We're really excited about #RegionalRail Phase 1 being included in this bond bill. This is a transformative project that reimagines what our Commuter Rail network can do for commuters, students, and residents across the region! 👩🏾‍💼🧕🏻👨🏻‍🦼👴🏿👨‍💻
#RegionalRail is about more capacity and more service, it's about #equity, and it's about economic development and more. Thanks to #mapoli for listening. With a few more amendments we can make this a reality.
#RegionalRail Phase 1 is about more trains during peak to relieve congestion 😟on the 🚞 rails and the 🚙🚗 road. In some cases the number of train during the peak (6:30-9:30 or 4-8) will increase by 50%!!! That's thousands of seats on nearly every corridor in and out of Boston!

1/ "We need to recognize and fund all of the work rather than just the relatively glamorous work of pushing new features." -@zmanian zaki.manian.org/blog/a-future-…
2/ Funding "all of the work" is one of the things that initially drew me to @decredproject, which moved beyond the insistence that only miners should get paid & instead incorporated a governance system to pay all contributors

Same applies to @radicle_xyz: radicle.xyz
3/ "Another key, more credit and upside for essential public goods should accrue to the contributors and builders while less should accrue to founders, big kahunas or other leaders." -@zmanian

Here, I believe Zaki means on a relative basis to what is now the norm, and I agree.

I am so glad that researchers are interested in helping extend #STEM opportunities to #tribal students!

But please understand that we #Indigenous academics spend considerable time to cultivate relationships of TRUST. No one should expect automatic access our networks. 1/8 #phd
Some well-intentioned researchers have asked to contact my networks bc they 1) have a #diversity goal (Indigenous people as a ✔️), 2) request a letter of support, or 3) have an idea to "help us". If this is our first communication, understand that we have not yet built trust. 2/8
Know that many #Indigenous academics have been burned by ppl who take the letter of support without honoring their commitments to those who helped obtain the grant or tenureship benchmark. That's extractive, and we do not forget. (Also true for #research community engagement) 3/8

#MythBuster - A thread - Yesterday, when markets were up and are up today, have seen numerous messages as to how #LIC has been put to work to prop up the markets and also how #LIC Ipo is a risk as their investments need to be sold or they will have to be independent ...
Lets take it through the numbers as to how relevance of #LIC in the #Equity Markets has detoriated. 1) #LIC puts in a net of 50-60k crores a year on an average. #MutualFunds in last few months hold 25-40k crores of cash and 8000 crores of monthly inflow through #SIP.
2) Total Value of #MutualFunds in #Equity has surpassed #LIC value quite some time back. 3) #SIP at almost 90-100k crore is double the money #LIC can deploy. 4) #EPFO averages 25000-30000 cr will soon cross #LIC. Thanks to it #SBI Nifty 50 ETF is now 66000 cr and largest #MF sch

I am so frustrated with the misogyny that is getting perpetuated.

Reported to me by an immigrant guy - who is assimilating to norms - on what is common in a neurosurgery resident office:

Talking about girlfriends’ “b**bs”

....in front of female PAs and med students
1/
Describing women with multiple sexual partners as “human gutters”

U.S. professors, tell him the law has become “gynocentric”

that men need to be afraid and are falsely accused

@TIMESUPHC @choo_ek @janevandis @arghavan_salles

Why #HeforShe matters

2/
Let’s even set aside outrage for a sec

How can you speak of women as “human gutters”, discuss your girlfriend’s “b**bs” at work in front of female med students and PAs

AND claim you are oppressed and need to be scared?

You *are still* openly engaging in sexual harassment

When someone says the word #SIP, most of us associate it with equity #mutualfunds. But did you know that SIPs are possible in the fixed income asset class as well?
#Debt SIPs can be one of the most useful ways to meet your short term goals, recurring goals, and asset allocation needs.
SIPs in #debtfunds can be used to meet yearly school fees, build an emergency reserve, your annual vacation, regular recurring expenses, working capital, etc.

Yesterday I visited the cafe where my brother works. His work is a big deal. Because he has an #IntellectualDisability #DevelopmentalDisability and #InclusiveEmployment is ridiculously hard to find. We talk a lot on #MedTwitter about being #Inclusive. 1/
I am part of those conversations. They usually centre around #GenderEquity, sometimes #Antiracism, occasionally #LGBTQ+ rights, and once in a while #Disability - but under that term I almost never hear about #DevelopmentalDisability, or more importantly, how we - physicians 2/

#DevelopmentCongress yesterday saw @KVairavamoorthy opening the event with a thought, when we can maintain a town sized community of 750,000 people airborne at any given time with modern water & sanitation amenities, what stops us from providing it to our fellow humans (1/n)
Drawing from his heritage, he noted, "it is the management of water and sanitation that has determined the longevity and exuberance of civilizations". #Resilience #Sanitation #ClimateResilience (2/n)
The tank systems prevalent in Sri Lanka and South of India were drawn as examples, as attempts by decision makers then to maintain an ecological balance while attempting to improve economic prosperity #EcologicalCivilization (3/n)

At #FORCE2019 @npscience getting everyone warmed up for a panel on "Who will influence the success of #preprints in biology and to what end?"
@npscience . @npscience laid important foundations for the discussion: (1) be aware of stakeholders' cultural backgrounds and the influences on the their viewpoints; and (2) it's always a balance between individual vs collaborative gains. #Force2019
@npscience First panelist @ReaderMeter compared #preprints to a staging area, akin to how we would interact with an #opensource project, where all sorts of collaboration could happen and #openscience practised 🌟 #Force2019

Thread on how #inclusion, or lack thereof, affects #Wellbeing:

⚠️: upcoming #vulnerability moment

Do you ever feel Iike you don’t belong in the spaces you occupy?
I do.
The feeling is isolating & discouraging.

The reasons why are complex, complicated. /1
#medtwitter #burnout
I will confess here that being in #dermatology and in #academia magnifies these feelings.

Being courageous, stepping outside comfort zones, making your voice heard... it’s good, necessary, but the way you’re perceived and received matters. It has impact.

It’s complicated.
/2
The cycle of self-confidence can be a positive or negative one, and often starts early in youth, affected by things such as parental upbringing, privilege, etc.

That cycle can build on itself, and have huge implications for one’s professional and personal wellbeing.

For my fellow white #bospoli voters, especially those of us in District 5: A thread on place, identity, and entitlement.
👇👇👇
I’ve knocked on a lot of doors this cycle, and talked to a lot of voters in Rozzie and Hyde Park. As the Boston City Council edges toward a majority POC body, one theme I’ve heard from white voters is a concern over “identity politics”.
This worry over candidates of color (who note their own perspectives as an attribute) assumes that electeds can’t provide constituent services while ALSO working to promote #equity in a city with a huge racial wealth gap. It also ignores the fact that…

Brief thoughts on the meaning of words: #diversity, #equity, and #inclusion. (1)
The use of the word “diversity” to mean “homogeneity of thought” was a brilliant and highly effective strategy to silence and shame different opinions. (2)
Same goes for “equity,” meaning making up for past injustices, as opposed to “equality,” which means treating people equally. (3)

Dear all 🙂Hope you enjoy the weekend! We are still in the Twilight Zone. Despite continued deteriorating economic fundamentals across the globe, US stock market continues to rally. But for how long...? Stay tuned for some #HZupdates
Indicators and signals across the globe continue to suggest economic slowdown - which slowly but surely spreads to all geographical regions and industries. It is my firm belief, that US will not decouple and US #equities will realize this at some point #HZupdates
#WTI sends clear signal from major Ending Diagonal. We may rally further in wave (B) - but soon we will see a reversal, which will send #Oil towards its LT-target of <20USD #HZupdates

Here’s the Trade Setup for the Volatility Burst Strategy:
Volatility = ATR of the last 20 Days
High & Low Vol = Highest High & Lowest Low of Volatility in last 252 Days
Upper Band = Highest High of High over the last 50 Days
Lower Band = Lowest Low of Low over the last 50 Days
#2
Back-test reports of the Volatility Burst Strategy show that its Annual Return Percentage is 28.47%. This is what the equity curve looks like.

As you can see, it’s important to take a position at the right time. But it’s also important to know how to exit when you’re losing.
#3
The drawdown graph of the Volatility Burst Strategy shows the maximum loss incurred.
The next step? We’re going to add a trailing stop loss and see what happens next.

FYI, a question currently before the Superior Court of Ontario regarding the 2018 #Toronto Municipal Elections to be answered is:

“Whether the Election is valid?”

There was already a ruling in the Superior Court that the Clerk shall retain the ballots.

#TOpoli #electionTO
#Toronto’s City Clerk is required to answer the following questions:

👉🏿 the Clerk is to publicly address how she verifies that each ballot cast is assigned to the right Candidate & what happens when votes are not rightly accounted for;

#TOpoli #electionTO #transparency

👉🏿 the Clerk is to to publicly explain how #democracy is ensured in our elections in Toronto;

If a person cares to get the right advice early in his #investing journey, outcomes will be far superior.

Where outcomes are poor or ordinary, the quality of #advice is the most likely cause.

Investors unduly worry about returns, even when quality of investing is decent. 1/5
Every step of my #investing journey, I received #GoodAdvice & #value everything I was taught. To this day, I seek constantly advice from the wiser. What I get, I freely give. As I learn, I teach. I rarely forget what was taught from day1, though my early Gurus are no more. 2/5
The early years are crucial. Starting with virtually nothing, we need to get #GoodAdvice, wise counsel & emotional support. From a few 1000s to one's first Lakh is the toughest part. From a lakh to a million is not easy either. Scale must be carefully sought. Most fail here. 3/5
