More than meets the eye. By removing itself from World Medical Assoc (@medwma), Canadian Medical Assoc (@CMA_Docs) appears to be attempting to remove itself &🇨🇦’s MDs from International Code of #MedicalEthics. Why?wma.net/policies-post/…

#HippocraticOath
#ethics #cdnpoli #onpoli
Some MDs in international medical community stating that it was @medwma’s criticism of CMA re below & #CMA not accepting its International Code of #MedicalEthics that led to CMA resignation

World Medical Association @medwma developed modernized #HippocraticOath w/ #DeclarationOfGeneva in 1948 after WW2 atrocities & has had highest standard of International Code of #MedicalEthics for ~10M MDs globally... EXCEPT for 🇨🇦’s MDs since @CMA_Docs’ exit

I'm a v nice person -- u can fact-check w God. 😉 But I will not allow #ZinziClemmons to get away w her drive-by to kill #JunotDiaz's career. JD didn't forcibly kiss her. #apologizetoJunot
@KieseLaymon @Occidental Hey Kiese: Too bad we're connecting abt this #JunotGate fiasco, as u're a smart brother I'd love analyzing culture w/. Listened to ur talks. Interesting kings/queens pt @DukeU. I fact-checked #Trayvon's parents' book passage @Essence for terrific exec editor, JM. U & I 4 justice!
@KieseLaymon @Occidental @DukeU @Essence Justice: This #JunotGate fiasco started May 4 @SydWritersFest when ur 30-something #WOC writer friend #ZinziClemmons took mic & publicly accused #JunotDiaz (@mit_cmsw @BostonReview @PulitzerPrizes) of harming her 6 yrs prior. ZC then tweeted JD had cornered & forcibly kissed her!

.@UN_HRC Why did you invite discredited William Schabas to address the UN when on grounds of conflict of interest in 2015 he was ignominiously forced to resign from your Gaza inquiry after it was revealed he had failed to disclose his paid legal work for the PLO?

#HRC39 #ethics
In his pathetic resignation letter, Schabas explained that he never bothered to disclose his paid legal work for the PLO because....no one ever asked him. "I was not requested to detail my past activities concerning Palestine..."
To his credit, UNHRC President Joachim Ruecker established the principle that UN appointees should avoid even the appearance of a conflict of interest. Only after Amb. Ruecker formally requested a legal opinion from UN Headquarters in New York did Schabas resign.

Important questions that founders, VCs, and those building products should ask:

1) Who are the non-customers / non-users that our product could be used ON or AGAINST?

2) Do our threat models consider: domestic abuse victims, children, sex workers, non-binary, trans, etc.
3) Do our threat models consider spouses stalking spouses, employers spying on employees, schools spying on students, parents spying on children

4) How would we handle compelled disclosure by the overwhelming power of the state?
5) What easy-money deals or partnerships will we agree to say “No” to at the outset because of our values?

Hint: “Don’t be evil” is a totally useless framework for ethical decision-making.

It's a criminal offence to falsifying a legal instrument. But if the #MetPolice / #LBRUT do it, then there is not even an investigation. 12 years of silence. Evidence to prove it - ukcoverup.com/search-warrant-

#skynews #lbc #theresamay #uk #bbcnews #coverup #c4news #worldnews #ukgov
Welcome to the #Metpolice who also changed & falsified my arrest details. Have a look at the evidence here ukcoverup.com/arrest-details as it's all easy to prove & that's why it's never addressed

Welcome to #NATO 101. Lesson 1
"The mere lack of #military #power is, in itself, not enough to cause a nation to lose its position vis-à-vis other states. That only happens when the people lose their individual integrity and the country gradually loses its national #integrity...
#NATO 101, Lesson 2
"No-one wants to cooperate with a country that has lost its integrity. [Even when] other countries have dealt unreasonably... who would want to damage the amity extant between [us, just by] sticking up for a state that has no national #integrity to begin with?
#NATO 101, Lesson 3.
"Many countries haven’t lost their international #prestige merely because of #poverty and #weakness... natural #disaster and poor #geography are enough to make a country weak and poor, and that can move others to sympathy. But lack of #integrity?

“We have this idea that #machines can liberate us from repetitive tasks, but there are different templates to use this #technology...” @PauloBlikstein #AIED2018 @AIEDconf | @uclknowledgelab @EDUCATEldn @AIConf2018 @brussels_ai @digityser @results4dev @CEInnovations @audreywatters
“Another element in this template, is that #learning happens at different paces... it changes from person to person ... but the awareness of the limitations has somehow been lost over the decades” @PauloBlikstein #AIed @AIEDconf #personalizedlearning @uclknowledgelab @EDUCATEldn
But...here’s the problem

“There is a big problem with this template that we have been using for decades ... in using this map...” @PauloBlikstein

Today, @NITIAayog released a Discussion Paper titled ‘National Strategy for Artificial Intelligence”. #AIforAll
niti.gov.in/writereaddata/…
We provide our initial thoughts on the paper here. 1/n
We welcome this initiative by @NITIAayog, but a call for comments would have been a welcome addition. The paper takes important steps forward from the #AI Task Force report released earlier this year by the DIPP, Ministry of Commerce and Industry (dipp.nic.in/sites/default/…). 2/n
This paper attempts a more holistic look at a broader range of issues concerning AI including #regulation, #ethics, #fairness, #transparency and #accountability. However, a number of issues still remain with this paper. 3/n

Steven Pinker (@sapinker) comes out with an essay titled, no less, "The Stupidity of Dignity" (2008). This is how you get Trump elected & re-elected, this is how you get Brexit, this is how you get really bad blowback. Utterly, stupidly, unnecessarily.
newrepublic.com/article/64674/…
Having started off in fine fashion by trolling the opposition *without actually achieving much thru the trolling*, Pinker then gets into what we could call #AcademicStrut, the Declaration Of Ego, dressed up over-intellectually. Let's examine this part:
1/ @sapinker's well-known problems with philosophy show up badly here. For one thing, the crucial point is dignity is an *intersubjective* concept, a social one appealing to conscience & group effort. Not just 'subjective', as Pinker wants to damn it. A complex but vital point.

CLC's @waltshaub met with Chair @TGowdySC and Ranking Member @RepCummings of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee today, laying out 13 actions that would strengthen government ethics in the U.S. bit.ly/2hoetZz
Action #1-- It's critical to insulate the Director of @OfficeGovEthics from potential political retaliation
Action #2-- OGE needs to be able to communicate directly with Congress so that it can raise concerns about the activities of the Executive Branch, offer solutions, and discuss its budget without needing permission from another agency.
