1/ What if we could cure most of the world’s leading causes of death?

Companies are already working to treat chronic illnesses, from cancer to heart disease and even dementia, by targeting ageing itself.

#Longevity #Biotech is the next big wave of medicine. Join the movement.
2/ Slowing the rate of aging has massive medical & financial benefits.

Net thread Inshallah ->
What is the difference between the value at risk (VaR) and the conditional value at risk (CVaR)?
Value - at - Risk is the purported worst-case loss under normal circumstances/market conditions developed using a computational technique and further specific modelling assumptions tailored as per the risk reporting requirements of a Trading / Investment Desk.
But I tend to disagree with the term WCL - (the Worst Case Loss), as mostly used by some authors in the field of FRM - Financial Risk Management.

@ipcc_ch reports that b/w 1971 & 2010, oceans absorbed over 90% of the heat gained by the planet due to #globalwarming. This led to #sealevel rise and has also resulted in higher frequency & intensity of #cyclones worldwide. #ClimateChange #MumbaiMustPrepare @mumbaismagic
Indian Ocean has also warmed but what is worrying is the higher rate of #warming in comparison to other global ocean basins. Data shows that Indian Ocean’s rapid basin-wide warming of ~1degC over the last 60 yrs exceeds that of the global average of ~0.7 degC. #MumbaiMustPrepare
Arabian Sea & Bay of Bengal have also seen consistent warming in past decades. The trend in rise in sea surface temperature for BoB has been 0.16C/decade & 0.18C/decade for AS. Arabian Sea indeed has been warming quite rapidly and impacts are for us to see. #MumbaiMustPrepare

Great to see Oxford Biomedica, a firm that is intimately involved in manufacture of anti-Covid vaccines, extol the virtues of training apprentices through the ATAC programme in whose inception I was involved: "Before recruiting and upskilling talent through the ATAC programme,...
Oxford Biomedica's approach was to only hire highly experienced ...candidates or university graduates for their roles. Continuing to hire from such a limited recruitment base was going to become problematic and a potential barrier to Oxford Biomedica attracting future talent ..
for company growth." But the ATAC programme has "provided Oxford Biomedica with a structured programme that allowed them to significantly deliver on their skills demands ...This year Oxford Biomedica will have 4% of their workforce accounted for by apprentices" and ...

@GenScript @iGEM Our iGEM team is working to make an #impact by reducing fungal contamination and sporulation in diverse settings like commercial residences, hospitals, and agriculture. 🧬 @GenScript @iGEM (1/5)
@GenScript @iGEM Moulds affect human health. #Aspergillosis infection severely affects the respiratory system in humans. Mucormycosis is a severe invasive fungal infection mainly affecting immunocompromised patients. 🔬 (2/5)
@GenScript @iGEM Development of cavitary pulmonary mucormycosis is increasingly reported in SARS-CoV2 patients. Glucocorticoids used for the treatment of Covid lead to secondary fungal infection. Our solution will potentially degrade the infection source & prevent further complications. 🧫 (3/5)

Had a fun time talking about #leadership in #STEM (at any stage of career), #BlackExcellence #WomenInSTEM #DEI #DiversityandInclusion to a range of students and faculty at @tennesseetech. Thanks for the invitation @JosephCSlater. Look forward to building further on this.
Talked about ways to take on community level leadership roles to develop skills in acquiring funding, managing a budget, team building, managing people, executing.

Know what you are good at and balance the rest with your team. Don’t try to be it all.
Particularly on #Twitter, being overt about terms like #bias or #BLM or #racism can result in blowback. That does not mean what you said was wrong rather others may have insecurity or have work to do. Manage your energy as an advocate. Avoid burnout.

When writing a resume/cv, you need to know this

1. Avoid sharing too many personal details. Things like country, state, DOB, place of birth e.tc. These things are not needed as they take space. Remove them.

1/6
2. If you're currently studying, place your education section above your working experince section but graduates should do otherwise.

2/6
3. Always think of value. Ensure your resume is projected towards adding values. Values can be measured in #leadership, #revenue, #impact. While writing your experience section follow Stephanie Nuesi CAR method.

2021 is a year when I need to work much smarter.

I need to build #collaborations with folk to make better progress on the projects I want to work with.

These are in the following areas:

1) Education - the current system is both skewed by nation state imperatives ...
2/

... and by the huge and still growing burden of knowledge it attempts to package and deliver both at school and beyond school in working environments ...

Folk need to switch to alternate education, finding leaders to first follow in the footsteps and then ...
3/

... assume the mantle of the late, great @SirKenRobinson

We need to find current leaders, build practice on the ground, connect internet guides to folk wanting to learn, and lift accreditation and connectivity systems into the cloud to make learning far more accessible ...

1/ With financial innovations such as #sustainablefinance and #impactinvesting increasingly viewed as key to the solution of current social and environmental crises, let’s take a look at how we got here, what might be problematic about that and what to do about it. 👇
2/ This is a thread about the empirical part of my book that traces the history of #socinv in the UK. I’ll leave the theoretical argument based on Fligstein & McAdam’s strategic action field theory & pragmatist action theory for another time.
springer.com/gp/book/978303…
3/ Financial innovations such as #impinv or #socinv mean that firms succeed to make money from financial intermediation where they haven’t done before. To do so, these firms have to make others participate: investees wanting finance, gov to regulate (and often subsidize), etc.

Who will cry when you die?
1/n

- live by choice rather than by chance, by design not by default.
- if you don't act on life, life has a habit of acting on you.
- bring more of yourself, find your calling and do stuff you are best at.
- #create postive #impact in surrounding
2/n

- when asked on deathbed, many said, "I wished I would have been kind to others". #BeKind #spreadsmilesthisdiwali
- try for positive perspective in negative situations, are your problems really big(est) than others?

#GREAT SOUTHERN #LAND

#PROBLEM
Australia is being DELIBERATELY Decimated
by both Foreign & Domestic Entities
for the Benefit of the Few
at the Cost to the many
where YOUR Future is Determined
by someone else
b/c THEY say so

Here is the PROOF -;
#ISSUE
The Global Positioning is expanding

#QUESTION = Do You realize what is REALLY Going on
OR
Do you believe the Narrative that is couched in
"Feel Good" terms of Inclusion & Diversity ??

#QUESTION = Can You "SEE" the Direction
that is being Imposed ??
#DIRECTION

Natural Progression by Society is one thing
BUT
When that Direction is FORCED Upon You without any Public Discourse
The RESULT is #TYRANNY

#QUESTION = Do You think that is NOT Happening ??

It was lunch time in #Brazil on a Saturday in 1990 when I decided it was time to be born! I grew up in a large city in #SãoPaulo called #Guarulhos, which in Tupi (native language) means “eaters” or “big-bellied people”. Here’s the proof I am “Guarulhense”:

Our #family was not wealthy, but my parents made sure I had good #education, even if that meant sacrificing part of their own life. For that I will be forever #grateful. They made sure I learned how to #appreciate everything I had that money could not buy.

I loved learning about #science in school. Not only because it is #fascinating, but also because my biology teacher, Diógenes (@spock_alvo), had great #enthusiasm when teaching it! His motivation would #inspire me to fall in 💜 with the 🧠! #teachinggoals
