Okay, I love @POTUS #CaregiverInChief but lowering drug prices is a complicated economic web — healthcare isn’t something that you pay for like a new car, it’s mediated by a third party 1/x #drugprices #pharma #medicare #medicaid
Take International Reference Pricing for example. (Lost you already, haven’t I?) This type of negotiation tool ties drug prices to caps set using “QALYs” - Quality Adjusted Life Years 2/ #health #pharma #medicine #innovation #caregiving #advocacy statnews.com/2019/02/22/qal…
3/ Don’t get me wrong - #health care needs to be affordable & #accessible & costs should be accessible. But tying access to medicines based on the economic “value” of a person’s life unfairly discriminated against older #adults & ppl w/ #disabilities, see ncd.gov/sites/default/…

This is the biggest story in World #Sport at the moment

The way the narrative is starting to play out is so reminiscent of the #Trump election - It's a scary template!

Regulated media V's Unregulated Media competing to tell the story 🤯#Boxing #Tribal

bbc.co.uk/sport/boxing/5…
For any #boxing / #sport fan with no previous knowledge of these characters, we should be sceptical of simplistic caricatures that are served up by Online Fans OR stenographers masquerading as journalists!

There's a lot of sh*t out there! 🤳💻

Research & Critical thinking! 🤔
If we accept the @panorama programme #boxingandthemob then we have a situation whereby #OrganisedCrime has not only infiltrated BUT is dominating a Global/Professional Sport!

If that's the case, what's to stop these forces taking over #Football OR other major Sport next?

Welcome to our new followers in the wake of the #SpyCops Bill. If you're new to the #SpyCops scandal, here's a thread of some key details about Britain's political secret police.
#SpyCops have spied on more than 1,000 groups since the Met's Special Demonstration Squad was founded in 1968. The public inquiry @ucpinquiry refuses to release the list of groups. Here's a partial list that @undercovernet managed to work out
theguardian.com/uk-news/ng-int…
#SpyCops often took active roles in organisations, steering policy & berating people for not being more 'hardcore'. They spied on numerous open democratic organisations from trade unions to hedgehog rescue groups. Targets were overwhelmingly from the centre & left of politics

#UBI is the strategic solution to protect the ruling classes from Molotov cocktails & global civil unrest. Disclosures on coming "disbanding of existing safety-net programs" are not included in the foundation funded marketing campaigns. ImageImageImageImage
"Cutting a wide array of existing programs — such as the earned income tax credit (#EITC), #child tax credit (#CTC), temporary #assistance to needy families (#TANF), supplemental #nutrition assistance program (#SNAP), & #disability insurance — would cover only 1/5 of the cost..." Image
#UBI will "result in a massive loss of existing transfers to people w/ #disabilities & #families w/ children. This approach would exacerbate the needs of the most vulnerable members of society."

"CivilSociety" "leaders" are 21st century commodities created/utilized by the rich. ImageImageImage

It was lunch time in #Brazil on a Saturday in 1990 when I decided it was time to be born! I grew up in a large city in #SãoPaulo called #Guarulhos, which in Tupi (native language) means “eaters” or “big-bellied people”. Here’s the proof I am “Guarulhense”:

Our #family was not wealthy, but my parents made sure I had good #education, even if that meant sacrificing part of their own life. For that I will be forever #grateful. They made sure I learned how to #appreciate everything I had that money could not buy.

I loved learning about #science in school. Not only because it is #fascinating, but also because my biology teacher, Diógenes (@spock_alvo), had great #enthusiasm when teaching it! His motivation would #inspire me to fall in 💜 with the 🧠! #teachinggoals

Day 1: Criminal Justice Reform. Recent police-involved killings and public outcry have made it clear that our systems of policing and criminal justice need to be transformed. You can read our entire R.E.F.O.R.M. plan on how we will address this issue here: drwoodymyers.com/criminal-justi…
Day 2: Repairing our Criminal Justice System. We need to expand intervention efforts to keep people out of traditional courts and prisons. This includes decriminalizing mental illness and addiction, growing homelessness intervention, and ending the school-to-prison pipeline.

#ThrowbackThursday to being on @radbrowndads' @seesomething podcast live taping at the @ArabAmericanMus! 🎤

Story time: I loved the taping itself but one of my favorite moments was the #afterparty.

#thread Photo credit: Arab American...
Since @radbrowndads and @salimahfm's #families were in town and packed the auditorium for the @seesomething taping, we all went out to #dinner down the street at Sheeba (an amazing Yemeni restaurant) afterward and took over a bunch of tables.
When we got there, @AshaMNoor and I started quietly plotting the whole time around how to outsmart the uncles - Ahmed's dad and Salimah's dad, in particular - in terms of not having them pay for our meals.

Trump rescinded DACA. The Supreme Court voted 5-4 saying he did this illegally.

We have a President doing what he wants strictly for his own gain.

What's worse is a majority of Congress, including Rob Wittman, blindly supported him and then approved separating families and put them all into detainment facilities. Families who are still separated and children still locked in as if they are in jail.
We have been failing these children. As a mother of six daughters, the idea that they could take my young girls and deny them even the most simple of essentials is sickening.

UPDATE - Northwest #Syria -

Last night, a camp for displaced people was hit by shelling in #Sarmada.

“This is horrifying. It shows how nowhere is really safe for people in #Idlib now”, says Cristian Reynders, MSF Project Coordinator.
This is an area where tens of thousands of people fleeing the #shelling in #Idlib thought they would find #safety.

We have been supporting newly displaced #Syrian #families in #Sarmada for the past two weeks.
#Syria: “We are appalled by the #shelling of this camp, where many people, who had fled the violence, had sought #refuge”, adds our Project Coordinator.

It is 2020!
At the beginning of each #newyear, we make #new plans, new #resolutions, new #goals , want new #directions, forge new #paths and much more. This is wonderful. It sounds like we all want #CLARITY in our hearts about what to do and how to get it done. @PD_PneumaFaith
As I was thinking about this over the last couple of weeks, the scripture for #PneumaFaith kept coming to my mind. "The unfolding of your word gives light; it gives understanding to the simple." (Psalms 119:130 NIV). @PD_PneumaFaith
The word #UNFOLDING is used in many translations of this verse (#entrance, #teaching, #revelation, #explanation #disclosure #opening #declaration) Whatever translation we read, it implies the #reading or #meditation of the #word brings #light, #illumination ...
