#FirstWorldProblems: Getting the cool hip au-pairs who all want say they want to go live with families in London to realise they *reallly* want to come to Manchester, of course.
Also, number of au-pairs who say they want to come to the UK has gone way down since Brexit, so that's really going to help all the nurses, single mums and everyone else who absolutely relies on them.
Clarification for those who care: au-pairs are not nannies. They get room, board & small allowance, in exchange for 2-3 hours work per day. Cost to family is £4-5k per year. A full-time nanny costs 10x that.

Morning campers! I’ll be live-tweeting from the European Court of Justice today about @Google’s “Right to be Forgotten” hearing.

What’s the main point? Should Europe (or France’s #privacy regulator) be able to apply its rules over the internet worldwide.

A recap:
La Vanguardia, a Spanish newspaper, published records in the late 1990s detailing the debt delinquencies of Mario Costeja.

About a decade later, Costeja sued, saying that the publication breached his right to privacy.
After a lengthy legal dispute, the case was referred to the ECJ which, in 2014, ruled that individuals had the right to ask that search engines like @Google remove links (but not the underlying webpages) from search results

(THREAD) Imagine walking into school - #FirstDaysofSchool. The most significant thing that anyone wants is to know that they belong, feel included, cared for, to feel significant, to know that they matter. As educators, families give us their greatest trust each day #MoralPurpose
From the moment students "step" onto school grounds, everything they see, hear, feel and experience gives them a message about whether they are valued, they matter, if this is a safe place to be in, grow, take risks, challenge, create, to LEARN. #3rdTeacher #GlobalCompetencies
We know that in order for Ss to learn, they must feel safe & included. Neuroscience helps us to understand that when ANY one feels unsafe, theyre not able to learn, engage in complex thinking. Solid #assessment is important & necessary, but without feeling safe, its not effective

I have to watch The Magic Pill today for an article.

@sallyt, send popcorn. Or xanax.

Should I live-tweet this as a teaser for the article?
I'M THREE MINUTES IN THEY JUST IMPLIED THAT CROCODILE ATTACKS WERE BETTER THAN GETTING DIABETES HOLY SHIT. #themagicpill
Seven minutes: I think they just implied that the fact that they're a family of emotional eaters is the reason why one of this woman's granddaughters is autistic and another one has celiac. Oh, and this woman in her 70s (?) is forgetful. All from sugar, obvs.
