Limitations of an Optimized Mindset
A thread 🧵on the problem of optimization!
1/ Finding an optimal solution through an efficient algorithm is how a trained technologist looks at any computational problem.

But as soon as this mindset is extended to real-world problems, the majority of inefficiencies become annoying.

#solutions #efficiency #productivity
2/ In fact, the real problem starts when everything in life becomes an optimization problem.

So much so that eventually, it becomes a defining orientation to life as well.

🍴 Rem's Healthy Cooking Newsletter 🍲

WEEK ONE:

✨Tips for cooking vegetables...✨
🍅🥦🍆

For the 1st edition of my newsletter, I have compiled some tips for cooking vegetables to make them taste great — No more steamed cauliflower! (Baked, it is amazing.)

🧵1/23🧵
I believe that a major barrier for many people in eating healthier is that they simply do not know how to best cook or prepare vegetables to make them taste good, so I think educating people on the subject is vitally important.

Well, here goes...

🧵2/23🧵
💠TIP NUMBER ONE:💠

🫒 A little oil goes a long way...🥑🧴

Even just a tablespoon or two of oil can do a lot to improve a dish. In addition to adding flavor and richness, it releases fat-soluble flavor compounds in foods, enhancing the flavors it is paired with.

We are filling the last items needed for the special medical food hamper for this senior family. Can anyone help with this?

#Help #YYCCC #YEG #YEGCC #foodie #Food #hampers #HelpNeeded
The reason this is a unique hamper is because the senior gentleman we are helping is terminal and has severe dietary restrictions that have been set by his doctor

We have worked with his doctor to provide what he needs to be comfortable as he possibly can be.

Do you know what a ‘Dark Kitchen’ is?

It’s the new trend for commercial kitchens that only prepare food for the rapidly growing #food delivery marketplace

And #Wendys are the latest to announce 700 new kitchens!

Meanwhile, @FPratty for @Siftedeu report that #Uber founder, Travis #Kalanick is behind a growing network of #dark kitchens across Europe

This is a controversial and competitive space
Other dark kitchen operators in Europe include #Glovo, #Deliveroo, #KarmaKitchen and #Curb

#Deliveroo plans to double the number of dark kitchens it has worldwide across this year

Earlier today we were in downtown #yyc handing out water & gatorade and fruit, when we decided to stop & have a break by the Cat Cafe...when we came upon a senior lady rummaging through the city's garbage bins.

#Yyccc #Calgary #Alberta #Canada #SeniorLiving #seniorcare #Seniors
We thought she was looking for bottles to turn in for money but we were wrong. She was looking for both bottles & she was also taking food out of the bins & putting it in her cart.

As soon as we saw that we went over to offer her our help.

#Help #Community #Compassion #BeKind
We went over, asked if we could get her a cold drink & a snack & asked her if she'd like to join us on our break.

She accepted. We went into the coffee shop across from the Cat Cafe (Forgot Name), grabbed some drinks & snacks and sat down in the shade across the street. #Hope

This morning we saw something we will NEVER forget.

We were at the #Walmart in Southeast #Calgary. We were shopping for some groceries when my stepson saw someone take a package of meat and put it under their shirt and then slowly walk over to their cart. #Food #Hungry #Alberta
This person had very few things in their cart. My stepson knows what I do here at @HarvestHillsYYC & he asked if we could help them.

I said yes we could but that this person would feel ganged up on if we all walked over to them, so I told him to stay here and that I’d walk over.
I walked over to where they had their cart and said “I know what it is like to struggle. I would love it if you’d let me help you and I’d like to pay for your groceries.”

This person looked up at me and said “did you see me take the meat?” I said “yes I did. I’d like to help”.

İtalyan düzenleyici kurum CONSOB'da Binance ile ilgili bir uyarı yayılandı.

Hem kullanıcıları hem Binance'ı uyaran.

Binance.com üzerinde "Türev Ürünler" ve tokenize edilen "Menkul Kıymetler, Hisseler" özellikle vurgulanmış.

Şaşırtıcı değil.
consob.it/documents/4618…
Binance ile ilgili yakın zamanda İngiltere, Japonya, Tayland gibi farklı ülkelerden düzenleyici birimler uyarıda bulunmuştu.

Özellikle Avrupa ülkelerinden tokenize edilen hisse senetlerinin ticaretine ilişkin uyarılar gelmişti.

Nasıl bir aksiyon geleceğini merak ediyordum.
Düzenleyicileri odaklandığı diğer önemli konu, türev ürünler

Halihazırda çok riskli olan ve daha sıkı düzenlenen bu finansal araçlar kriptoda çok daha riskli. (Kaldıraçlı işlemler vs.)

Lisans, izin, kayıt gibi şartlar yukarıda sayılan araçlar kapsamında daha da önem kazanıyor

I remember #Glasgow slums; poverty has a stench - despair
Didn’t expect to write about it 30yrs on; kids denied 1 free meal a day for a few million; a mere drop in the #Covid spend
#Poverty's not as visible now as then, covered by #food #banks, #charity shopping
PERHAPS you have to be a certain age to have witnessed real poverty when it came in ragged clothes and dirt-encrusted faces with the impetigo scars of deprivation.
Now poverty can be disguised in warm clothes that hide the spindle shanks of children under fed;
malnourished on a carbohydrate diet cobbled up from the pennies left after feeding the heat and light.
My first, but not last encounter, with this demi-monde came in 1970s Glasgow shocking me to the core of my being and leaving me with an anger that has never abated.

Opposition is screaming about Inflation,but India under @narendramodi has curbed #Inflation,versus global peers

#VegetableInflation in India is minus 1.92% in May&Food inflation 5.01%

Globally,#FoodInflation up 39.7%, Cereal up 36.6%,Wheat price up 28% &Maize 89.3%

My thread👇
Globally #Inflation is rising because of co-ordinated fiscal stimulus,that has led to asset prices,zooming;For instance,annualized inflation in USA is 9.7%;2yrs back,US was in throes of #Disinflation

$6 trillion stimulus by #Biden has led to too much money chasing too few goods
For those wanting to know why the difference in #WPI&CPI,figures well,weights of items in CPI are based on average household expenditure,taken from consumer expenditure surveys

Weightage of Primary articles in #CPI is 55%+,with Food group alone having weight of 39.06%

#RetailInflation in May 2021 is 6.3%,Vs 4.23% in April

Core Inflation is 6.6%,Vs 5.4%
Food Inflation is 5.01% Vs 1.96%

Despite uptick,@narendramodi
govt has done very well to rein in #Inflation

Global Food Index in May is up 39.7% YoY,due to drought in many parts of the globe
#GlobalFoodIndex is measured by
#FAO Food Price Index,#FFPI,which is a measure of monthly changes in international prices of a basket of #food commodities;It consists of average of five commodity group price indices,weighted by average export shares of each group over 2014-2016
Why have #Food prices surged globally?

Argentina saw a big drought

Ukraine&Russia also suffered from drought&inclement weather

Indonesia&Malaysia,biggest producers of #PalmOil,have curbed exports,as govts in these countries have made blending of Palm Oil,with fuel,mandatory

When you’re in a pub, restaurant, bar or café and things are out of stock, a bit slow, or generally less than perfect. Please have a little think before you kick off at the staff.

Your mate who decided they didn’t want to go back to their job driving a lorry….
They didn’t deliver your favourite beer or food… that’s why it’s not available.

Your friend’s kid who stayed at Tesco and didn’t go back behind the bar, that’s why the service is a bit slow, they’re a person down.
The chef you know who became a gardener and now prefers flowers to flour, they are why your lunch is taking a bit longer, because the person who did come back is on their own, hot, tired and doing their best.

Excited to share our latest work - we use pan-neuronal 2 photon imaging to dissect how the #brain integrates multiple internal states to guide #food #choice! Fantastic work by @Dahaniel who took on this challenging project almost solo! #drosophila biorxiv.org/content/10.110… 1/21
We wanted to know what changes in the brain when animals #crave #foods. How do different internal states interact to change neuronal processing of #food #taste to alter feeding decisions? And can we use neurogenetics to identify causal brain regions driving food choice? 2/21
We had shown that when flies are protein deprived they increase their preference for protein-rich food like yeast. Food taste is key when deciding what to eat. But does the metabolic state alter taste processing and how do internal states change decisions? 3/21

1/8 More nonsense is written about Pav Bhaji than about any other Mumbai dish. It was not invented as a meal for hungry mill workers. But yes there is a textile connection.
2/8 In the 1950s and the early 1960s, merchants would gather at the Cotton Exchange in the heart of Mumbai to wait for the daily New York cotton figures. Because of the time difference, these would only come in after midnight.
3/8 When the merchants left the Cotton Exchange they would always be famished.

Stalls selling pav bhaji opened near the Exchange to feed them. The dish was vegetarian because the merchants were mostly Gujaratis.
