Matt O'Sullivan, the senator for Mindaroo, on media today lying to the public about the card, and going on and on and on about getting people off "welfare and into a job" while @keithjpitt uses VETO POWER to can a NT windfarm that was GOING TO CREATE JOBS for people! 1/
He just announced they wont be waiting for consultation with communities before imposing this latest $30M " work program", a largess payment to LNP selected "services" in "trial sites" that of course wont be tendered 2/
Calling us " inner city activists" when urban centers are on cards & our admins are from every card zone, every part of Aus including remote regions communities.
As usual, he is lying about impacts on the ground ignoring all cardholder voices from the last 6 years. 3/

FOI feedback from the dept:
No one has become homeless, ended their lives or reported DV, as a direct result of the #cashlessdebitcard
So all their OWN data 👇 & testimony of cardholders & families reporting one or more of the above, on video to senate & on our pages lied? ImageImageImage
Eight young ppl apparently haven't died in Hervey bay alone this past 2 months

There’s an important story unfolding while u go about your lives, Texas. Extremists in the #txlege have convinced moderates that they have to pass permitless carry, a dangerous gun bill that will allow virtually anyone to carry a loaded gun in public. THREAD 1/
But what no one is saying is how data shows us permitless carry is a bad idea. It’s data, ya know, provided by professional ppl whose job it is to tell us what’s actually happening, not what we think we know from our ltd experience. 2/
IRL that means more Texans die of gun violence. Like this 15-yo-girl shot dead in Mesquite this weekend. A 15-yo is a baby. A child. I wish #txlege could think of the families left behind when stuff like this happens, but they don’t 3/…

1. #POSO

12/28/19 he could have said former *RESTAURANT* owner”, OR he could have chosen 1 of the other doz+ business owners incarcerated for CSAM that day/week. He didn’t.

Operatives for the #DivideAmerica #Agenda are ”MAGA” side too #Facts
2. #POSO #Cernovich pushed BS stories that HELPED push fellow 🇺🇸 citizens to vote Biden (bc “right” looked crazy) Simultaneously the stories exploited emotions of Trump voters (same way BLM does blacks) It’s psychological manipulation.

A few POSOs results in a #DividedAmerica

Word “racism” silenced, actively, by #MedEd #MedTwitter #healthcare#professionalism” & “communication” labels

Saying “racism” offends or “hurts feelings” > actual #BLM deaths

If #professionalism itself is racist -makes sense that word suppressed
What @ayshakhoury experienced pushes out & silences many

If the editors of @JAMA_current resist hearing word “structural racism” then they certainly are not publishing papers using that word

No "Covid19" isolated #Facts…

"Dr. Derek Knauss: “When my lab team and I subjected the 1500 supposedly positive Covid-19 samples to Koch’s postulates and put them under an SEM (electron microscope), we found NO Covid in all 1500 samples."

"We found that all 1500 samples were primarily Influenza A, and some Influenza B, but no cases of Covid. We did not use the bulls*** PCR test.’

At 7 universities not once COVID detected."

"When we sent the rest of the samples to Stanford, Cornell, and a couple of the labs at the University of California, they came up with the same result: NO COVID.

They found Influenza A and B.

Then we all asked the CDC for viable samples of Covid."

We live in an attention #economy & what #Tweetiatricians have known for decades (#Twitter started in 2006): importance of drawing attention to factual science-based information as compared to #misinformation & #disinformation, especially on #vaccines…
You have to be fast & prolific to play catch up to this. I have 77K tweets, a moderate sized band of 6K followers interested enough to tolerate my volume but use of hashtags allows reach across Twittersphere. Trending hashtags = better for riding a way for that attention economy
If is unclear if we are now so siloed that tweets are ineffective with anti-vaxx. But not all anti-vaxx are QAnon

Peak Twitter. Woman w/ stage 4 #endometriosis, #fibroids, latter condition more common in WOC, post 2 gyn surgeries

instead of improving, response ~ "not to attack... but am glad you are not my doctor"
Indeed, I engage patients & families 1:1 without forcing them into fields I've pre-created for my #data collection, based on assumptions I have from personal experience

Respecting women & WOC allows people to not be forced into leading questions or pre-created fields
Measuring needs to be #quality to deliver quality. Your #results will never be better than your #studydesign or collection methods. Wrote this cuz we need less measurement & more humanity. I'm in b-school & everyone sends a new survey every 30 sec..…

Unity is first & foremost responsibility

Have you EVER seen a responsible #racist?

Americans view the unfolding events as internal affairs

They forgot - the US gov aggressively promoted globalization & insisted on being the leader of the "free world"


The world agreed & was rewarded with a shock

B4 #Trump, many "flaws" of the system were not obvious

#TraitorTrump exposed them all

- the system of C&B is dangerously unreliable
- human life is worthless
- unprecedented #corruption
- #DoubleStandards

#NoJusticeNoPeace ➡️

#Biden should've restored #RuleOfLaw b4 talking about unity - he put the cart b4 the horse

#JoeBiden's unity
- turned #racism into a political stance
- let #GOPTraitors off the hook
- reduced #RuleOfLaw to nothing
- "inspired" #CorruptGOP & it's base

We teach wrong when we teach residents to write elaborate notes. 1/many
Doctoring is not performed in front of a computer in a work room. 2/I’m going off
Every extra minute spent writing pretty notes is a minute not spent

- solving the sick person’s problem
- learning about the disease, it’s diagnosis and treatment
- discussing complex medical decisions with colleagues

And most importantly

- talking to your patient 3/

Just stop these tiny violins. As a woman of color who lost my mother to the pandemic, as a licensed physician, and as a public servant, I can say it is EXACTLY women like Dr. Birx who drive out women like me from “her” turf & prematurely end the lives of women like my mother.
You don’t have to buy an assault rifle and show up to shoot someone’s mother to have blood on your hands.
Bureaucrats like Dr. Birx has blood on their hands no different from as if she did this. You can kill, passively, while wrapped in an Hermès scarf.…
@JeromeAdamsMD this is an example of bureaucrats & policies causing death

Perhaps before implying seeking accountability for the policy-driven deaths of so many mothers & loved ones

is “anti-feminist”
learn history
bureaucrats kill women & men of color…

The forward 6"/47 Mark 16DP guns aboard the cruiser Worcester.

The Mark 16DP saw the earlier Mark 16 (Cleveland & Brooklyn classes) guns be mated to a new turret and greatly enhanced shell handling equipment.
This allowed the Mark 16DP to retain its powerful anti-ship performance, while granting it autoloading capability and any angle loading. The mounts also featured powerful motors, granting fast traverse and elevation rates.
This made the Mark 16DP one of the first truly successful 6" dual-purpose guns to see service.

However, the weapon was not without drawback.

It was extremely heavy. It was also let down by a complicated dual feed loading system that hampered rate of fire and was unreliable.

Pulled an all nighter to read this book last night.
Thread incoming.
Yes it really was called The Apartheid of Sex.
Many of the arguments will be familiar. Book is from 1990’s. Image
Author is a late transitioning male, with a wife (who he calls his “Spice” because he makes up language). He also fathered children.
You will likely have heard this name before :Martine Rothblatt. If unfamiliar head over to @11thBlog & @bjportraits Image
Martine thinks single sex spaces etc are akin to apartheid . Hence the rather subtle 😳 title. Is this why the #Woke call us (Femi) #Nazis and the odd accusations of anti-semitism for saying “biology is real” or other inflammatory stuff. Or other #Facts. Image

1] Someone shared with me a #legal opinion which sought to separate "#facts from #fiction" with regards to the resolutions previously made by @OurMDCT during it's so called virtual #NationalCouncil

Carefully went through it, whilst referencing to the MDC-T #constitution itself..
2] On the attached press release, @witness_dube authoritatively claims that the "the National Council sitting as an extension of Congress moved to amend the MDC constitution..."

Apparently, the alleged amendment is the basis on which the appointment of Elias Mudzuri was ratified Image
3] Going through the MDC-T constitution itself, it would seem like the distinction between what a Congress and the National Council can do is clear.

Only a legally constituted Congress can amend the constitution of the MDC-T party according to clause 6.2.3 (e). ImageImage

And then there is the question of who is white.

Iranian/Persian & Arabs are white on census.
Does the rest of America agree?

Racists & xenophobes tend to use loophole to say being anti-Muslim (whom they consider to all be Arab) is “not racist.”…
Proving again: race is a social construct

Not until 2020 Persians really started to call selves “POC” (for self protection)

Have lots of Persian friends
Urdu culture has Farsi roots

But let’s be honest: Persians have seen selves as superior race, apart…
