I met so many amazing women in the quality field at @AgileTD! 👩🏾💻👩🏻💻👩🏼💻 Here's some Twitters you should all follow (an #AgileTD meets #FF-even-though-it's-not-a-Friday thread):
Let's start with @cswesepieces, who has the craziest stories about conservative Ohio colliding with very Indian India and about living on the Polish/Mexican border in Chicago. She instantly made me feel welcome at speakers' dinner! 🥰 #AgileTD#womenintech
There's the awesome @FaizaYousuf, who gave a keynote on the serious topic of cross-cultural Agile transformations going not-so-smooth, but kept us laughing (and learning) throughout. 🤩 Super smart, super balanced, an Agile superhero & skilled listener! #AgileTD#womenintech
Die Aktionen im #HambacherForst sind keine Angelegenheit der politischen Ausrichtung, es ist eine Angelegenheit der Diskrepanz von Naturschutz vs. Gewinnstreben.
Hier wird ein Wald vernichtet, dessen Rodung unsinnig und ...
... unnötig ist. Die „anvisierte“ Braunkohle ist für die Deutsche Energiepolitik nicht benötigt und ist nur für den Export relevant ... also nur von finanziellem Nutzen.
Menschen aller Altersgruppen stellen sich diesem Wahnsinn entgegen und selbst eingesetzte ...
... Polizeikräfte sind im Gewissenskonflikt. Die @Polizei_NRW_AC und andere werden als Erfüllungsgehilfen einer lobbygesteuerten Poltik missbraucht und zu Einsätzen geschickt, die wider jegliche Vernunft ist.
Personalized #FF in a thread. @WylieNewmark for bridging the Gap between cultural and political academia to operations. @DrunkBinary for the constant onslaught of crowdsourced and community effort. @hacks4pancakes and @jfslowik for the human side of ICS infosec.
@CharlesDardaman for being a malware reversing trooper and an awesome drinking buddy. @HumanMalware for staying real and putting the warfare in cyber warfare. @QW5kcmV3 for talking about tough subjects and being operator af. @notdan for giving me the other perspective.
/2 BIG POINT NUMBER ONE: In this DC agreement, Manafort pleads to two charges with a maximum 10 year penalty. He agrees to facts that support the government's Sentencing Guideline calculation, which starts at 210 months, much higher.
/3 What does that MEAN? Well, the Guidelines are only suggestions, but it means that even with respect to the DC conviction only, Manafort has a lot of cooperatin' to do before he starts making a difference on that sentence -- it's likely to max out at 10 years.
On August 30th, an archive of communication between former US President Bill Clinton and former Russian President Boris Yeltsin was declassified by the White House. We downloaded tweets containing 'Clinton' and 'Yeltsin', resulting in 7200 tweets from 5588 accounts.
Among the themes that pop up in these tweets is the notion that former President Clinton "colluded" to help Yeltsin win, with the implication that any collusion with a foreign power on the part of Trump isn't so bad.
720 accounts have tweets containing "Clinton", "Yeltsin", and either "collusion" or "election" in the last ten days. This chart shows the news sources mostly frequently linked by these accounts. Russian state media seems popular.
2/ The proposal to end the Flores agreement, as it’s known, comes after the federal government has admitted it didn’t reunify more than 500 migrant kids with their parents.
3/ The settlement was the result of a class-action lawsuit filed in 1985. It states that the government “shall continue to treat, all minors in its custody with dignity, respect and special concern for their particular vulnerability as minors.”
I know you are under a lot of pressure lately. And I know you are sick and tired of being called "fake news" and I don't blame you. I know you're mostly doing good things.
You need to do better when covering activist press releases. As a scientist, let me just say, you really suck sometimes. If you don't want to be accused of publishing fake news, one great thing to do would be to stop publishing actual fake news.
Here's one small tip for identifying fake news: if it's from @ewg then it has a high likelihood of being complete and utter bullshit. Dont be their stenographer. Don't legitimize their pseudoscience by making it a he said/she said story. Just stop already.
130 million years ago, when dinosaurs roamed Earth and the first flowering plants were beginning to bloom, two neutron stars spiraled into each other. #OTD in 2017 the gravitational waves arrived and made a mirror here on Earth move about 1/1000 of a proton radius.
About the same time one of @LIGO’s detectors was ringing, the @NASAFermi space telescope detected a burst of gamma rays. @LIGO and @ego_virgo’s automated systems determined that the signals were probably related.
The same subatomic shiver was confirmed in the second LIGO detector, and an alert went out that turned telescopes around the world towards the patch of sky that issued the chirp and burst.
#FF to my good friend @halpernnaomi1 who is also an incredible consultant on complex trauma. I highly recommend going to any of her workshops. It’s changed my life for the better so much.
The mental health system in Australia is pretty rubbish at dealing with complex trauma - standard CBT and meds won’t touch the sides and many therapies that are first port of call for anxiety and depression will make it worse.
Psychs and GPs need to be better trained to screen for complex trauma and once identified people should be case managed to get all the help the need. Complex trauma trashes the brain and the body and people need help with both.
