Growth rate is key during a disease outbreak. The rate of growth in the the total confirmed #cases in #Canada seems to be showing signs of slowing and pulling away from the continued steep trend line seen, for example, in the United States (Green). #COVID19 #coronavirus 1/25
This is a +ve sign, but still very early to tell, esp. with an est. 1M+ #Canadians having just returned from travel, and #COVID-19 #testing only targeting >severe cases (due to rationing & backlog in lab testing), we don’t have a good grasp on the level of community spread. 2/25
The number of total cases is what we want to know, but the true number of these is not known. Not by us epidemiologists, nor by any other research, governmental or reporting institution. 3/25

Shills for "The Future We Choose" - round up #2.

Not a coincidence. The majority of those promoting this book are both white & wealthy. #Ecological crisis will never be resolved by the ruling classes. It cannot be resolved within the same economic system that created it.
The Guardian rolls out the red carpet for "The Future We Choose". Par for the capitalist course.

As the former CEO of #WeMeanBusiness, recently appointed by the UK Govt as the High Level Climate Action Champion for UN climate talks, #COP26, of course Nigel Topping is excited.
"It's about human lives"

This anthropocentric ideology appears to be an infectious disease amongst the "enlightened eco-capitalists". It demonstrates that they are absolutely disconnected from the natural world.

#TheFutureTheyChoose will reboot the system destroying Earth.

-A interview of a antisemitisem scientist-

"In polls, many #Germans are annoyed by the thematization of the #Holocaust: One third is annoyed that the crimes committed against the #Jews are still held up today. And 41 percent think that #Jews talk about it too often ..."
The feeling of being held up is apparently present in many, they feel attacked. It is quite paradoxical: Although in surveys almost 90 percent say that belonging to #Germany is the knowledge of the history of National Socialism. Nevertheless, especially the #youth find today:
My #grandfather was already no longer involved, at some point is also good times. Interestingly, this is not just a #German phenomenon, but in the whole of #Europe, such as in #Poland and #Hungary, but also in #Spain or the #UnitedKingdom.

#Neuroscientists worldwide are increasingly studying #myelin and its amazing impact on rapid #learning, mastery, and neuroplasticity. So keep your circuits strong with deep, focused practice, but remember: #myelination requires quality versus quantity.
What Is #Myelination?
Myelination is the process of “insulating” a new neural pathway to strengthen it and to forge new default #behaviors. Heavily myelinated neural pathways are up to 300 times faster.
They’ve been optimized for speed and #efficiency. Increasing #myelination via intentional #practice helps us become more emotionally agile.

Today's Applied Complexity Symposium begins with a panel on Computation and Complex Economies, feat. Rob Axtell, Joshua Epstein, @C4COMPUTATION, Blake LeBaron, John Miller, & @MelMitchell1

(Follow this thread for live coverage all day...)

#complexsystems #economics
4 Principles of Collective #Computation:

1 Ground truth (objective reality)
2 Effective ground truth (what we agree on, whether or not it is accurate)
3 #Information can be collectively encoded in #networks
4 Outputs are a product of collective dynamics

@C4COMPUTATION right now
"I think #economics really needs to adopt a generative framework with agent-based models of cognitively plausible software people...[and] we don't choose to fear."

@LinkedIn @LinkedInToday The H-1B is profoundly broken. It doesn't need to be cut, but reformed.

A rebuttal to this piece (from firsthand experience managing a global team with H-1B's at a F100 US corporation.:

bloomberg.com/opinion/articl…

(thread)
H-1Bs don't officially make workers indentured & underpaid; just unofficially. Workers can only switch to other companies that will pay to sponsor visas. Many don't. So:
- That reduced market
- Extra cost
- Transactional friction

Limit their options & pay.
Because many H1B workers arrive without families (or at least extended families), they tend to work longer hours, so companies get more bang for the buck.

How much buck?

🗃 #Thread 🗃

Where are the #arrests?

I know a lot of people are pissed off that they're not seeing mass arrests after all the #proof that has been uncovered

I understand, trust me. I want to end the #DeepState as bad as anyone

Why should I #TrustThePlan? 🤔

I'll explain ☟
First I will get into the 'WHY', then I'll explain the timeline.

The Why:
I want what everyone wants, mass arrests around the #world, the entire #DeepState, gone.

The thing you have to ask yourself is, what will the outcome be? For every action, there is a reaction.☟
What would happen if Obama was arrested tomorrow? Civil unrest/war. #MSM has people lost in a #FalseReality, they will fight because they have been trained to think it's the right thing to do.

Things are slow played for three reasons. One, to do everything by the book. Two,...☟

With brand new epilogue: Dear Greta.

#climate #climatechange ideafaktory.com/cannibal/
#ClimateChange thread

The most sober & pragmatic analysis I've seen is from Citi, showing the benefits of clean solutions outweigh costs.

But that's the business side.

Sadly, the political rhetoric is now unhinged, exaggerated, irresponsible hysteria.

theguardian.com/environment/cl…
1) Greta says "people are dying". Not exactly. Deaths from natural disasters have plummeted over past 100 years.

2) Greta says capitalism is the problem when its driven down pollution by subbing gas for oil/coal, driven innovation lowering solar, wind, battery & other alt costs.

After much contemplation, I finally wrote about my experience with #Vipassana meditation.

ilareddy.com/2019/09/17/bre…

Sharing some quotes/excerpts/concepts in the thread below.
#Vipassanā in Pali means “#insight” or “seeing deeply”.

The practice of Vipassanā meditation, thus, revolves around training your mind to observe reality as it is, and not as you wish it to be. And in the process, overcome #suffering.
It is a #meditation technique that the #Buddha mastered over time and found to be the most effective in eradicating all kinds of suffering in the world.

CPD Again... Pt. 1)

I had 'visitors' again today, Chicago's finest of course.
As I began my conversation with the 2 good Officers responding to a man I had encountered on #ThePeoplesBridge, who was aggressive, abusive, foul-mouth, and just rude.

#ThePeoplesBridge
#QSentMe
I'm pretty sure it was this 'Prince Charming that called in a complaint.
The 1st thing I informed the Officers of, so there was no errors in what was going 2 happen was "I am NOT taking my Banners down, so don't even go there. I am going 2 be here for another 30 minutes.
Pt. 2)
If some 'crank' thinks his 'taking the lazy way out' & calling y'all is going 2 change this fact- It's Not".
I continued w/ "If he thinks his calling CPD was going 2 have me "Not offer Hope" 2 Chicago today...He is confused, because I do- & I am going 2 today as well.

Thread on some thoughts on @ewarren's plan to demand poor countries meet labor & environmental standards to trade with the US & on @Noahpinion's critique.

1) Yes, Clinton-era free trade agreements caused a multi-decade job bleed from the US, especially in manufacturing
2) Free trade generally benefits lower cost providers. Therefore, a net positive for emerging nations.

3) There are things we could have done to phase in free trade deals, like boost investment & re-training in other industries, to limit the downsides. But hindsight is 20/20.
4) While ALL consumers benefit from lower prices from free trade & much smaller groups of workers benefit from protectionism, it's the job of a nation's leaders to balance the two. That did not happen here. The digital boom abandoned the analog workers of exported industries.

- Guru Prasad
SUbject - Appeasement, Madrasa, Khilafat

1- The Madrasa system is like a sleeping dragon which is actually gradually sinking into an ocean. It is in the best interest of our nation, as well as humanity, to avoid awakening it.
2- What I mean to say is that the #Madrasa system in India, especially in the last 20-30 years, has been on a steady decline. While several other countries have been shutting them down #forcefully or through #legislature (due to activities of spreading radicalism).
3- and whereas in India, all our past Govts chose not to disturb the #Madrasa system so that it can #die down #naturally. In fact, several Muzlim families have been moving away from the Madrasa system, and switching to the #normal schooling system for their kids.

While this is symbolic, it's moot, in practice.

1) Most likely, we won't need a draft. #Future wars will be automated, just like cars & romance.
2) If we had a draft, we're screwed anyway. We can't even convince kids earning $0 on Twitch to take one of the 5M unfilled, high-paying blue-collar #jobs w/free training. Our draft is just a way to fill up Canada & tear down our big beautiful Mexican wall..w/fleeing US migrants.
3) This policy is just bad math. You need women & R̶.̶ ̶K̶e̶l̶l̶y̶ Barry White tunes to make future soldiers, but only a tiny hairem of guys named Tom Brady & Jason Momoa.

1/ Transparency International (@anticorruption) have just released their 'corruption perception index' rankings for the last year

It's a global rank of government corruption. We came 13th #Auspol #DemocracyForSale

theguardian.com/australia-news…
2/ Since 2012, we've slipped from 7th to 13th and to be honest, it's not actually that hard to see why...

#Auspol
3/ In that same time period (since 2012), @LiberalAus and @AustralianLabor have received more than $100 million from some of the biggest corporations in #Auspol (and the World!) through political donations, or other means - such as 'business forums'
