Hello Tweeple! Super chuffed to have this #paper just out in @naturesustainab ! It took 2 years, 15 institutions and 18 authors to put this together. Here's a summary 👇🧵 (0/9)
(1/9) The problem: #landscape-scale #conservation in a crowded country like #India

@xazalbert se fait le plaisir ce matin de partager le résumé de ce que devrait être là 3ème note du #COVARS sans avoir la courtoisie de me tagguer. Il souligne, sans surprise, l'inutilité de l'obligation du port obligatoire du masque et le coût de la mesure mais passe
étrangement sous silence d'autres dimensions pourtant clés pour éclairer cette décision que doit prendre le @gouvernementFR @Elisabeth_Borne (@Seb_Delescluse @cedricarcos @BerthomeKermoal @aur_rousseau) et qui implique notamment les ministres de la @Sante_Gouv @FrcsBraun et
du @Economie_Gouv @BrunoLeMaire (@MartinotPauline @olivierveran #quisait).
La mort sociétale évoquée par Monsieur @xazalbert est bien cachée dans sa conception des choses. Car l'inutilité du port du masque qu'il prône emporte bien des maux.
Elle nie les personnes d'ores & déjà

🚨🚨 Pour le moment rien ne permet de prédire qui risque de développer des séquelles importantes suite à une infection #SARSCoV2 🚨🚨 ⤵️
Donc tout le monde est #fragile @Sante_Gouv @FrcsBraun @gouvernementFR @Elisabeth_Borne @Seb_Delescluse
mais aussi @olivierveran (#quisait) et @Elysee @EmmanuelMacron
En conséquence, il faut revoir en informer le grand public pour que chacun puisse décider, en connaissance, d'adopter ou non les #gestesprotecteurs (au moins dans les situations individuelles et si vous n'êtes
toujours pas décidés à revenir à des obligations déclenchées sur la base de certains seuils).
Sans doute serait-il aussi opportun de reconsidérer le contenu du protocole sanitaire retenu par le @education_gouv et a minima dans un 1er temps le niveau retenu pour la rentrée.

Why I believe Roam is Antifragile

a thread by yours truly
Quick recap on Antifragile:

There is a concept that a spectrum exists measuring things weakened by stress (fragile), unaffected by it (robust), or strengthened by it (antifragile).

We had no word for the last one so @nntaleb invented "antifragile".
Information overload: the negative state humans enter when they've received too much information or data.

This flow of information could be seen as stress and we as humans with internal memory capacity weaken if we receive an overabundance of it too quickly.

The #CoronaVirus or #Covid19 is a classic #BlackSwan event.

No one could see it coming. (Ok @BillGates did highlight risk of a pandemic - but realistically not many planned for this)

Such a chaotic event is catastrophic for those who are #Fragile,
A downturn for #Robust
Good for #Antifragile

(Channelling my inner NNT)
What is fragility?

As per @nntaleb checklist

- too much concentration of power (can’t talk back to authority with honest feedback)
- one trick pony (export one commodity)
- too much leverage (financial or over optimised supply chain)
- experience of previous crisis

I #linger dockside, watching laborers load ideas into the ship’s hold for their dangerous trip across the astral sea.

Waiting for my opportunity to stow away and sail into the starry night.

I crawl up the rope from the far pier to the ship’s deck and climb over the rail. Glance around quickly, then duck down the stairs to the hold.

My eyes adjust and I see dreams stored neatly for their trip across the sea of night. I’m seeking #haven from nightmares.

Hidden in the hold, I feel the ship move as the ropes let loose. The mystical tide pulls us out to sea. We rise into the night.

The ship begins to pitch and roll, as a #wild psychic storm passes over. The hatch slams shut above me.

Some notes on @nntaleb's #Antifragile: Some things benefit from shocks; they thrive and grow when exposed to volatility,randomness, disorder, and stressors and love adventure, risk, and uncertainty.. there is no word for the exact opposite of fragile. Let us call it antifragile.
This is pretty much a sense of complexity
of much interesting is that aging and chronical diseases (as diabetes) lower your complexity level in physiological time series such as heart rate (working paper)
