The UK's Gender Service for Children is a national disgrace that causes immense harm. Which LGBT organisations are speaking up for trans children in their submissions to the Gov LGBT Health Inquiry....parliament.uk/business/commi…
@stonewalluk response is a huge let down. One point out of 69 is on children's GIDS. It focuses on need for training at CAHMS, not even questioning why trans children have to go anywhere near CAHMS (CAHMS doesn't even want to see trans children) @ruth_hunt
@stonewalluk make a brief reference to waiting times (without stating it's 18 months), an unexplained reference to Gillick competency & a concern about transfer to adult services. @Stonewall recommendations have nothing on trans kids or on shameful UK GIDS @PaulTwocock #Fail

I hate the way people romanticize history on "Thanksgiving day." I saw a stat about something like over 80% of Americans eating turkey today.
If every one of the households that bought a turkey would buy a children's or YA book by a Native writer... that would be AWESOME. Especially if it is one that is set in the present day.
People tend to want Native this/that in a "long ago" or "far away" sort of framework. I guess that offers them a way to "honor" us but keep us as far away from their day to day life as possible. Messed up, though, right? (Say right, please.)

Marketing #fail of the month: I visited the big @TMobile store in Burbank, CA - planning on getting the new @oneplus 6T, but the @petelau2007 @JohnLegere love-fest is going to go sour very shortly, if my experience was any indicator.
Staff not only had zero product knowledge of the phone, but clearly didn't even care. I casually asked what the phone specs were (storage, camera), and the store associate begrudgingly took out his own phone to research the answer via the Web.
There were no specs displayed beside the only 6T in the store, shoved in a back corner. There was no @oneplus product-specific signage whatsoever. A basic rule of product marketing & sales is that you have to both #Know about your product, and #Care about it.

Aaaand: "Burkman, a conservative radio host, is known for spreading conspiracy theories. He launched his own private investigation into the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich."

Oh, so you mean he peddles Kremlin disinformation and lies. Totally did NOT see that coming.

Oh @cmrlofficial . Why so averse to learning? New stations, same old access problems. #Senior #Joyride thread - I spy with my jaundiced eye. #ChennaiMetro #A11y #Fails @DisabilityIndia
Really @chennaicorp ! This is the access to Nehru Park Chennai Metro station? At points the pavement itself is non existent with bus and Poonamallee High Rd traffic whizzing by. Senior citizen required support on both sides with parking 50 m away. @cmrlofficial @DisabilityIndia
1 foot footpath with trip with at one side and someone sitting blocking the other side of the tree. Not to mention the auto blocking the way too. #Pedestrian #Accessibility #NotACakeWalk

LOL!

This, from the same illiterate ass-clown who wrote:

"As a retired Law Enforcement Official [sic] (last thing you'd of [sic] figured out), I recommend that @Alyssa_Milano and all #MeToo women report you & block you to [sic]!"

Gaze upon your #fail, @dubephnx, and weep in remorse.

My 2nd-grade kid has better grammar & spelling.

Ça commence sec avec la déformation de l'info scientifique dans la presse. Les conseils aux journalistes, de la chercheuse Estelle Dumas-Mallet : être moins catégoriques quand on annonce une découverte #IMGS6
Elle souligne que parfois, l'info est survendue dès le communiqué de presse ! La solution d'après elle : former les chercheurs à la vulgarisation #IMGS6
Par visioconf, Thomas Huchon (journaliste, Spicee) est invité comme "praticien de la fake news". Le ton est donné :P #IMGS6

Starting on the show from the 10th. It begins with an "Op ed" from the NYT. I found no other copy online. HInt: this isn't about the piece, it's about a "go signal" in an effort to muddy the elections in favor of the Dems. Expect more, much more over the next couple of months.
Props for trying though... Notice how quickly it died. "These people are stupid!"
Turns out the piece is 100% plagiarized from a college kid's submitted essay. If you haven't read it yet, I highly encourage you to pull up that BuzzFeed article... it's a satirical take on the op-ed.

Leonard Leo picked Kavanaugh.
Leonard Leo is a member of the Council for National Policy.
Wanna know some other members? Kellyanne Conway, Steve Bannon, Wayne LaPierre, David Keene, Ken Blackwell, Erik Prince's Mom, David Bossie (Citizens United) etc etc.
They. Are. Dominionists.
Leonard Leo. CNP. Federalist Society. Theocracy.
Fuck off, Dominionists.
SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE-THAT'S WHAT MAKES AMERICA GREAT!

Sorry but...what kind of #$&! is this, @nytimes? I'm no fan of the President, but how do you publish an anonymous op-ed that furthers the "fake news" narrative and is lame, trite, and literally adds nothing, substantively, to the conversation?? #FAIL nytimes.com/2018/09/05/opi…
Reminds me of a time when, at @YaleLawSch, we had something called "The Wall." It was a physical wall, upon which students could post anything they wanted -- from grievances about the hummus in the Dining Hall (which was terrible) to commentaries on political events.
There was ONE RULE about The Wall. Anything you posted had to include your name. This was to encourage transparency, honest debate, and the willingness to have the courage to state your views.

Others are quoting more salacious bits, but don’t miss this from Woodward’s book:

“One month into his presidency, Trump asked...for a plan for a preemptive military strike on North Korea”

One. Month.

I have no doubt Trump *wants* to use nuclear weapons.
washingtonpost.com/politics/bob-w…
Tbh, I don’t understand all the “WOW!” and “Explosive!” and “OMG!” reactions to this piece that I’m seeing on my feed.

The descriptions within it of Trump’s behavior and mentality confirm what has been evident from the outside looking in since Trump’s campaign.

He. Is. Unfit.
As Trump perceives himself to be betrayed and/or abandoned, he will only become *more* dangerous.

Re-upping my thread from October 2016 detailing the unparalleled danger someone with malignant narcissism like Trump poses to the world:

Dear #hospitals:

Your discharge planning sets #patients up for failure. How? Let me explain (again, & again, & again). #PtExp #PtSafety #PtEng #EHR #interoperability #PatientAdvocacy #medtwitter #GMDD #hcldr

1)Follow up appts, essential to a patient’s health & recovery, are listed as part of the discharge summary. These appts are recommended to be scheduled within 7-10 days. To be best prepared, patients need their records. #healthcare #PtExp #PtSafety #PtEng #EHR #GMDD #medtwitter
2)All records from a patient's hospital admission should be AUTOMATICALLY sent to every listed follow-up physician. Hospitals, you know which drs patients need to see; it’s listed in the discharge plans. This step needs to be embedded in the workflow #PtExp #EHR #interoperability

Not weird at all..

This is textbook execution of a PM between asset and handler

Since there is no known comm barrier, no need for c/o to bring in a linguist

Oh there will be plenty of record, as venue will be 'prepped' well in advance.
You'd have to be incredibly stupid and or desperate to walk into that room alone.
Putin is a Counterintelligence Agent from the Cold War era how also happens to be leader of our nation's primary geopolitical rival..Trump on the other hand is a mental midget who can easily be manipulated..who also worships Putin..'alone time" can be disastrous to the US!!!

THE WATCHMAN

[...] "The watchman’s task has always been a thankless one.
"There are treacherous fifth column elements, who are really working for the #defeat of the #nation, at the hands of its enemies.
"These subversive elements readily gain and hold the #public’s ear, because they soothingly tell the people what they want to hear. Go back to sleep, no danger can come, and there is nothing you can do.

Quand Beaumarchais débarque à Londres, en ce mois d’avril 1775, il ne vient clairement pas faire du tourisme : d’une part, ses démêlés judiciaires lui donnent quelques raisons de s’éloigner mais surtout, il est en mission secrète pour Louis XVI. #Thread
Il faut dire ici qu’en plus de sa carrière littéraire, le Pierre-Augustin est aussi espion : depuis un an, il est agent du Secret du Roy, organisation ultraconfidentielle mise sur pied par Louis XV et qui n’avait de comptes à rendre qu’à lui-même.
Or, outre le Royaume et ledit service secret, Louis XVI a hérité de son prédécesseur d’un emmerdement de classe internationale qui, justement, se trouve à Londres : il s’agit de Charles Geneviève Louis Auguste André Timothée d'Éon de Beaumont — a.k.a. le Chevalier d’Éon.

Ok, I want to build a simple product this week and launch it. I am thinking of a bot that pushes a commit to a stupid repository on GitHub everyday in order to make it green in the span of a year.
I have to find out first if it is possible to create through official APIs and whatnot. Let's see...
Ok so I had a look, it can be done. You can create a repo and create a commit programmatically through the official API. So far so good.

Three commonly held but untrue views seem to nicely summarize this "report":
1. Selling your goods below cost is a success strategy
2. Being "big" means you cannot be disrupted
3. Government wants to save us from "market power"
#1 only produces a return if one can then raise prices and still sell big volumes *and* no one else can enter the market. How can firms "protect" their staked-out market space? Without government privilege there's only one way: by offering goods of higher quality at lower prices.
So to be successful, either the firm produces better goods or they're more efficient (lower cost). Neither is much of a problem for consumers. And if they charge prices above what consumers think it's worth, both the good itself and the purchasing power of their money, they fail.

Incoming transmission: #StupidGate thread...mostly looking at Manafort and Gates, their legal troubles, the Mueller investigation, and their Russia/Ukraine dealings.

(Original research done by reddit user PoppinKREAM, commentary and organization are mine).

#TheResistance
Manafort first started working for Putin via Russian Oligarch Oleg Deripaska back in 2006.

This was halfway through Putin's first term. And US/Russia relations were...strained.

#StupidGate

#TheResistance

apnews.com/122ae0b5848345…
Also in 2006, it is TOTALLY NOT SUSPICIOUS that Manafort bought a ton of real estate in New York in cash.
