#Digital technologies, which have become one of the important parts of our lives, have numerous benefits in many areas such as #education, #health, #economy, etc. But, and there is a big but?
What are the costs of #digitalization for #children and #young people? How should families treat children on the internet or social media using? What do the figures tell us? Here is the threat on Children & Young People’s Mental Health in the Digital Age by the OECD in 2018. Image
Almost half of the world is connected to the #internet, and in countries that are members of the OECD almost everyone is #online. For children and young people today, being online and using social media have become an integral part of their lives.

This is hard to write but it is true for many. What I’m about to say is a harsh reality of what people go through.

What I am about to say is also the reason why a lot of people don’t ask for help.

People do not ask for help because of the fears and stigmas that exist.

Here Is Something to think about,

What if you were a #singleparent with a #child

You work full time for $15.00/hr

You take home roughly $960.00 per paycheck (bi-weekly after taxes)

#singleparent #parenting #Blessed #grateful #calgary #calgarylife #alberta #yyc

@EveryAlbertan
Your bills per month:

$1,000 or more for rent
$150 or more for cable/internet
$250 or more for utilities
$150 per month for car insurance

So let’s do the math

You bring home about
$1,920.00 a month

Your bills average about $1,500(give or take)

Stroke outcome #prognostication

☝️#Stroke clinicians are routinely asked by patients and families regarding prognosis.
🧠The cognitive process underlying prognostication is #complex, poorly understood, and sometime #biased by personal experiences Image

#StrokePrognostication

#Fact: Clinicians, even those with expertise in stroke, perform poorly in predicting clinical outcomes
In this case-based study, overall accuracy for predicting death or disability at discharge was <20%😩

☝️Several prognostic #models have been developed to aid prognostication after ischemic stroke

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.

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.
