@Bren4Bassetlaw 1) I’m so disappointed that someone who was a teacher and has a PGCE in Religious Studies has so little understanding of ‘personal tragedies’. The death of my 37 year old daughter during the pandemic is something I’ll never get over. I’m angry her final hope of
2) cancer trial treatment was cancelled on lockdown. I need you to understand that my ‘personal tragedy’ has been made far harder by the behaviour of MPs and their staff. I couldn’t travel to be with my daughter during her last few months, but Mr Cummings drove to Barnard Castle.
3) I was deeply upset that he was defended by the PM. There were several others who broke the law - Robert Jenrick, Matt Hancock to name just two. It is unfair of you to say that the public are using these cases as political agendas. As a former teacher you

Remember this Kenyan runner Abel Mutai who was just a few feet from the finish line, but became confused with the signage and stopped, thinking he had completed the race. A Spanish runner, Ivan Fernandez, was right behind him and, realizing what was happening,
started shouting at the Kenyan to continue running. Mutai didn't know Spanish and didn't understand. Realizing what was taking place, Fernandez pushed Mutai to victory.

A journalist asked Ivan, "Why did you do that?"
Ivan replied, "My dream is that someday we can have a kind of community life where we push and help each other to win."
The journalist insisted "But why did you let the Kenyan win?" Ivan replied, "I didn't let him win, he was going to win. The race was his."

1/#Storytelling helps you realise that the biggest, scariest, most painful or regretful things in your head get small and surmountable when you share them with others.
2/#Storytelling is a favour to yourself because you are taking a moment to write your name in the wet cement of life before you head to whatever is next.

Twenty years ago, the world changed forever. The company I worked for lost more than 300 employees as a plane hit the floor we occupied in the World Trade Center.
For months, as employees, we volunteered helping family members locate loved ones, feeding the Red Cross workers, arranging funerals, and tripling up in cubicles so everyone had space to work. For some of us, it feels like yesterday.
For others, a faint memory. Let’s never forget those who lost loved ones, those who’ve fought for freedom, and the indelible compassion that emerged in humanity. This last 18 months has required more of the same, and the season ahead will no doubt still need it.

Good to see #motivation in addition to #competence, #honesty & #reliability.

@medConfidential's formulation - #consensual, #safe and #transparent - addresses a subtly different problem, which is that NO system will...

#HonestyDay నిజాయితీ దినోత్సవం👃
నిజమైన ఆయనంలో లేక అసలైన మార్గంలో నడుచుకోవడాన్ని నిజాయితీ అంటారు.నిజాయితీ అనేది నైతిక పాత్ర యొక్క ఒక విభాగాన్ని సూచిస్తుంది, చిత్తశుద్ధి, యదార్ధం వంటి అనుకూల, సద్గుణ గుణాలనే అర్థాన్ని ఇస్తుంది, అలాగే దురుసుతనం, అబద్ధం, మోసం, దొంగతనం వంటి #honesty Image
దుర్గుణాలు లేకపోవడాన్ని సూచిస్తుంది. అంతేకాకుండా నిజాయితీ అంటే విశ్వసనీయత, విధేయత, నిష్పక్షపాతం, హృదయపూర్వకతనం కలిగి ఉండాలి. నిజాయితి అనేది అనేక జాతి, మతపరమైన సంస్కృతులలో విలువైనదిగా ఉంది. తెలిసో తెలియకో ఏదైనా తప్పు చేసిన వ్యక్తి తన తప్పును తాను గ్రహించి సరిదిద్దుకొనే
ప్రయత్నాన్ని నిజాయితీగా తన తప్పును తాను సరిదిద్దుకొంటున్నాడంటారు. నిజాయితీగా వ్యవహరించే వ్యక్తిని "నిజాయితీపరుడు" అంటారు.

If you care about any of the following:
#Fairness and #Integrity
#Honesty in #HigherEd
#Liverpool and #Wellbeing
Can you please RT?
👇
It pains me to have to tweet the following about the University where I have spent 18 largely happy years. I am still an honorary professor there and I want it to remain an honour.
What is happening at the University of Liverpool is not normal and it threatens not just the 47 academics who are threatened with the sack. What is at stake is even bigger. I explain why below. Please RT to ask management to reconsider.

Keep in mind the phrase “shattering” the glass ceiling is a violent phrase associated with riots or “anti-social” activities. #womeninleadership conferences or books don’t prepare you for reality of how perceived/treated when “smashing” the patriarchy, especially as a WOC.
There are two ways past the barrier: 1-align with/serve patriarchy and have the door opened.
= mere optics of change while perpetuating status quo & structural inequity
Or
2-shatter it the glass ceiling. The latter will cause you to be a threat to the system & leadership
On rare occasions, the person opening the door past the barrier is truly seeking progress at scale rather than tokenizing you.

More often than not, your role when on the other side is to be token and sign off on perpetuation of inequity while providing the right look/optics.

Some thoughts on where we are with COVID in Iowa.

#beds
Hospitals are full. Don't look at "beds" available on websites. Hospitals are already running at >100% capacity. Healthcare workers are burning out. If all we needed were beds, we could just put people into hotels. 1/x
#community
People are not wearing masks and are doing things they shouldn't. Don't go to bars to watch the Hawkeyes. Don't take grandpa to eat indoors at restaurants. Eating/drinking indoors increases risk 3-4 times! If you go to bars/resturants you are collapsing hospitals 2/x
#schools
The virus is spreading in schools. This is because community rates are too high and there are too many kids/teachers getting infected in the community. We will need to close schools in Iowa and reduce transmission before we can safely reopen them 3/x

Step back & ask what is money?

Biggest threat to wealthy is exposing worth is a malleable human invention

@Teri_Kanefield nails it—democracy vs hierarchy

Declaration of Independence’s equal worth clashes with our innate differences

To what extent does worth lie in our humane treatment of others?

In our abilities, activities in context of others?

In our accumulation of wealth through our exchanges?

Worth & worthiness & our tenuous clutching to our own value frames freedom & humane choices or lack of them.
What’s likely driving the fervor to restart the economy at the expense of others lives is a fear that the longer we continue relying on essential workers previously labeled “menial” & “low value” we openly expose the lie that wealth is worth.

That we afford what we value.

Am I allowed to be outraged by this, or does that make me "antisemitic" ?

- Video of a Palestinian child being assaulted by Israeli police this morning.
By @syedakif17

Isreali goons dressed in uniforms violating basic human rights of Palestinians 24/7.

Constitution of Israel is based on Talmud where Goyims have no rights.

If a Zionist kill anyone, he's not to be punished, he's owns gentiles.

1/ There are many nonverbal signs indicating relative levels of confidence. During last week's hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford exhibited contrasting examples of one such signal.
2/ When a person raises their right hand to be sworn-in before testifying, if their fingers and/or thumb are spread apart - it signals low levels of confidence.
