Today the European Commission will publish a proposal for a new law which will make the interception, analysis and monitoring of *ALL* digital communications (messengers, forums, direct messages etc.) mandatory.

#privacy #humanrights #chatcontrol #surveillance #dignity #csam
Let me be clear - this is ILLEGAL under EU Treaties and Case Law under the principles of proportionality and necessity. This new law will turn the EU into a surveillance state.

#privacy #humanrights #chatcontrol #surveillance #dignity #csam #childsexualabuse
500 million citizens will be subjected to complete blanket surveillance - the impact on privacy will be profound. Everything we have fought for since 1949 - our values, our principles, our democracy and our human rights, will be undone with the scratch of a pen.

I think its time to talk about #ReligiousFreedom and exactly where one person’s #freedom starts, and another’s ends. And no I’m not talking about a woman’s body dividing cells, I’m talking about breathing adults who #vote
#ReligiousFreedom is SO important to everybody. And I agree that I ALSO want my own #FreedomOfReligion. But other people DON’T get to define that.
I am in charge of my own #belief systems. You could even say I’m RESPONSIBLE for them🤔
#AmericanTaliban
No matter how wacky they got, the point in time where I am no longer allowed to practice my #Religion, would start IF it harmed another breathing adult, and that word #harm is pretty loaded too, isn’t it?
How do we define #Freedom?
How do we define #Life?
#Happiness??

It’s well known that our society is infected by concepts which make us unhappy, damage our communities and endanger the biological world. These concepts infect us, we become contagious, then we infect those around us.

We know the sort of concepts they are. They look like this:
–You need more
–Take, don’t give
–Winner takes all
–Greed is good
–Appearances matter
–Those in power deserve their power
–Those with wealth deserve their wealth
–It’s your fault you’re poor

Some of these concepts simply misinterpret Darwinism. Some are demographic falsehoods. Some are empirically false. All lead us to a dangerous outcome for our species.
I consider them viruses–contagious & malign concepts which are part of a mind plague that’s harming us all.

I posted this yesterday with parents permission. I wanted to expand on this video a bit.

1st, a big part of me feels very uncomfortable with posting. Just like a big part of me felt uncomfortable about posting about my kids experience (w permission). It feels exploitive. 1/
Yet, when I share experiences of #caregivers & or #patients (who had given me permission to share) those experiences were/are often questioned or I’ve been excused of exaggerating. Or like many others called a #shill for #Pharmaceutical companies. I am a mother, who 2/
witnessed first hand the harms of pain ignored, not treated, under treated or labeled as #psychosomatic. I remember very vividly how my kids would arch their backs in pain & scream. How helpless I felt. I have seen the repercussions of this #harm & am absolutely obsessed 3/

Everyone’s trying to sell you something, or take something off you, or get you to do something.
Everyone’s out for themselves.
No one can be trusted.
People are greedy.
People are lazy.
It’s a dog-eat-dog world.

That’s how I sometimes feel.

But it’s far from the truth, isn’t it?

These are just the lies we’re being told – or it’s people behaving that way because of the lies they’ve been told.

Our media is our enemy – and much of our schooling too.
We’re victims of cognitive imperialism – and the invading empire has established its outposts in the hinterlands of our minds.

This. Black nurses like @mclemoremr who not only have authentic clinical and community experience, not only know the disparities data, but also are winning grants to do the studies themselves belong on the transition committee or COVID Task Force.
In contrast when I have taught medical students straight from @AmerAcadPeds policy statements on racism in a hospital with a disparities center, have been told by a division chief that nurses find me “too political” which exactly is this that @COCoQC lays out

Not safe spaces Image
Repeatedly I “break ranks” - I don’t spend my time on outrage over “scope creep” - who is serving in the communities where Black women die at a 12x higher rate from maternal mortality? Not the doctors or nurses battling on own job & pay.

Woah..that was freaky but familiar. Was lying down & decided to get up to take pain meds for #endometriosis and #fibroids and it felt as painful to get up as the day after surgery. In kitchen, sweating, lightheaded. Quickly squatted to avoid passing out holding onto fridge door
..which swung open..but I did not fall. Then once head feeling better, stood up long enough to take meds...then walked, wobbly and lightheaded to chair. I can't quite feel my palms but that will come back. This probably gets to be called 10/10 pain..but maybe really an 8/10
Great..and a migraine too..scotoma.. taking a migraine med and lying down. Man, when it rains it pours.

Mother Nature is such a misogynist.

SO glad I did not decide to rent a car and try to go Finger Lakes this weekend to see peak foliage.

#Harm #Children

Yesterday I ran a poll about possible harm to children due to internet access and social media.

Please read on about role of one faction in this.

As a doctor, i am careful about what I prescribe to my patients and what I feed to my children.

I know that even lifesaving medicines can have side effects.
As a doctor my job is to weigh risk and benefits of intervention.
Informed decision needs to be taken by parents about any medical intervention.

Adequate information is available about these interventions on internet.

These are the #stories of #math that we celebrate, amplify and make central to the idea of #maths as a #objective #neutral #culture-free subject. #Math can do no #harm, and the #logical “pure math” thinking of #Mathematicians is worthy of emulation. But... 1/x
2/x ... "What about pure mathematics and mathematicians who merely prove theorems? Is there any #ethical component comparable to what you find in other fields of #science?" - R. Hersh in Experiencing #Mathematics
3/x One point of view: "there's no need for #mathematicians to have a code of #ethics, because what we do matters so little that we can do whatever we like."

Hmm.. guess wear masks even for basic visits like milk, breads etc. despite doctors saying otherwise. #doesnt #harm. Image
Good read. Basically, arguments aside, with new research coming on virus every other day (mostly elderly die they said first, but now they say young also dying), perhaps its best to wear masks even if basic ones. #coronavirus nytimes.com/2020/03/17/opi…

Excited to share that our #GHB paper is now out in @AddictionJrnl.
With @RoseCrossin @foruharmoayeri @DebbieScott16 and team @TurningPointAU @MonashAddiction

bit.ly/GHBmeth
Trends in GHB‐related harms 2012‐2018 in Victoria
Spoiler alert, 147% rise
Highlights here->
What we did: looked at ambulance callouts for #GHB alone vs for co-use w other drugs (eg. #methamphetamine, #alcohol)
What we found: Overall #GHB presentations increased 147%, peaking in 2017 at 1339 callouts. This increase was largely driven by #GHB+#methamphetamine use together
#methamphetamine #ice co-use was >6x more likely to result in ambulance callouts than co-use with other drugs e.g. alcohol; and more #mentalhealth symptoms e.g. psychosis or anxiety.

Tweetstorm coming up on the 9 distinguishing points of our thinking on #DataProtection ☔️ @dvararesearch @benichugh @julupani @binduananth 1/n
1. Scope —the law should apply to protect the personal data of all people in India, foreign entities conducting business in India + those outside India processing personal data from india. 2/n
2. Protect all personally identifiable data—do away with the distinction b/w “sensitive personal data” and “personal data”. Protect all personally identifiable data.This means the law will not apply to de-identified data; incentivising de-identification (as techniques evolve) 3/n
