“…unvaccinated adults remain relatively unmoved by the recent news of the omicron variant with a large majority of unvaccinated adults (87%) saying the news about the omicron variant does not make them more likely to get vaccinated.” 🙃 | via @KFF kff.org/coronavirus-co…
Less Than Half Of White Adults, Republicans, Unvaccinated Are Worried About Getting Sick From COVID-19 | via @KFF #Hubris #PresumedInvincibility #Cult45* kff.org/coronavirus-co… Image
Omicron’s ripping through America (especially in red/purple states) because refusing masks/vaccines/lockdowns has become a proxy for White Republican identity. They’re peer pressuring themselves into catching/spreading Covid, overdosing on Ivermectin and dying of Whiteness. Image

"Plans for the elitist, money-grabbing league were unveiled Sunday night, triggering universal condemnation and galvanizing #fans against the 12 owners who proposed the tone-deaf breakaway."

1/ "The #SuperLeague collapsed under the weight of its own greed less than 48 hours after it was introduced, & Henry posted an apology video hours later in which he said, “The project put forward was never going to stand without the support of the fans....'"
2/ '...No one ever thought differently in #England. Over these 48 hours you were very clear that it would not stand. We heard you. I heard you.'”

Going to have to make a #hubris thread, simply because it's happening at light speed!

Hang on tight folks!
There are so many things wrong with this press conference, it just reeks of idiocy...or just plain ol' lies.

Namely, 'office of the president elect', 'the election is over' both hilariously untrue.

Fox News Anchors apparently don't know much about civics.

'calling it' doesn't mean squat, but she seems unconvinced that is the case, I suppose reality will hit her like a ton of bricks.

In the midst of an out-of-control #Coronavirus epidemic, 3 million+ cases, ~70k new cases and ~1000 deaths each day why would the Prime Minister of #India put out a video of his walking about his gardens with a #peacock strutting around him?
It's insensitive sending out a message, "I don't care." It's not the same carefully scripted media management as washing the feet of #safawallas (sanitation workers) in a gesture of humility that we saw pre-election. Yet it will do nothing to dent his popularity with his fans.
But why do it at all? why invite critical comments on social media - seeing in the peacocks' bright plumage preventing him from soaring in flight, a metaphor for #ModiJi's obsession with presentation grounding India's economy. Why cock a snook at millions of poor and jobless? Image

"#Power" is certainly one framing; #incompetence & #hubris two others.

Like Chris, I reckon @NHSX has (finally) made the right decision - one that was quite obvious both pre-#GApple
medconfidential.org/2020/apps-for-… & after medconfidential.org/2020/gchq-and-…

... & the damn thing still has to WORK!
And this:



...though I think "lessons learned" may be a bit precipitant / generous to the Gov't in the circumstances. There's zero sign of (2) as yet, and active *avoidance* of both (5) & (6).

@youyanggu's model now projects a median of 12,049 deaths by Aug 4, with a 95% CI of 6,454-19,059.

I'm sorry, I mean this with all due respect to your track record in other places, but how does this look anything like a statistical martingale???

Sure seems weird that your median now is w/in 4% of your 97.5th percentile from 20 days ago!!!

Congrats for updating the medians, but my broader point of fundamental uncertainty still holds: I really don't buy that your 97.5th percentile should be 1.5x that of your median.
@OwainEvans_UK @lukeprog @MWStory and others who might be interested in the state of the art in ML-guided coronavirus modeling.

Wow!! One of the most outstanding books I’ve ever read.

Sand Talk: How #IndigenousThinking can save the World

A great recommendation for these days!!

Thanks Tyson Yunkaporta. Your book is a gem to be discovered: #wisdom #values

A few years ago, I wrote a post about the #philosophy of Good Living or Living Well from Indigenous People
academia.edu/6528305/_Good_…

I talked about #biomimicry, learning from Nature with humility, and then we could also learn from the wisdom of indigenous people
I've decided to start a month-long project where I'll tweet a “wise” tip about "Sand Talk" every day during April. 30/30

#WiseBoomerang #1 This will be the 1st one.
It's about #humility the antonymous of #hubris. #Communication #DialogicalEthics #Connectedness

THREAD: Body Language Analysis No. 4356: Donald Trump: "When I can, I tell the truth" • #Nonverbal #BodyLanguage #BodyLanguageExpert #EmotionalIntelligence #DonaldTrump #Lying #Lie #Deception #WhenICanITellTheTruth #DupingDelight #Hubris #Braggadocio
1/ On Thursday 1 November 2018, Jonathan Karl of ABC News interviewed President Trump. One of Trump's responses went particularly viral. What follows is a partial nonverbal analysis of this interview.
2/ JONATHAN KARL (continuing at 3:49): "And finally, I remember, you remember - well on the campaign, you made a promise, you said, 'I will never lie to you'. So, can you tell me now, honestly, have you - kept that promise at all times? Have you always been truthful?"

Gentle reminder that the @GOP impeached Bill Clinton for telling a lie about the circumstances surrounding his infidelity.
Stormy Daniels’ attorney on Trump's denial: ‘Christmas has arrived’ shareblue.com/stormy-daniels…
Aside from the fact that Trump is lying through his shifty teeth, why the fuck else would Cohen just pay Stormy $130K, if not at the behest of his client? Both of them thinking we’re stupid enough to believe this shit is a crime in and of itself.
