1) Policy that truly supports Artists and Creators is a priority for my campaign, it's also critical to our economy, and for our well-being and theirs.

Meet @DeafShowRunner of #BlackDeafTalent:

“What I don’t see on television are [characters] based on our lived experience.”
2) “The people I’m working with have no idea about Black Deaf culture… I find myself educating them, it can be challenging because they are resistant… I am a Black woman and sometimes they don’t wanna listen to what I have to say.” - Jade Bryan #BlackDeafTalent
3) Artists help us connect the dots on complex issues, make us laugh or cry, and feel connected to our own lives. For all of these reasons, we need artists to have Federal support through grants, subsidies, and portable benefits.

Meine aktuelle Sichtweise zu #LongCOVID

Berichte zu Häufigkeiten von LongCovid verlieren an Interesse. Allzu oft sind symptombasierte Studien Grundlage der Berichterstattung. Bei einer so wenig objektivierbaren und diffusen Symptomatik wie wir sie unter Long/Post-COVID finden1/9
2/9wird die Abgrenzung zu Allgemeinsymptomen immer schwierig bleiben und anzuzweifeln sein. Andererseits mehrt sich das Wissen um organische Schäden und Folgen. Vieles davon bleibt außerhalb von wissenschaftlichen Ansätzen unentdeckt, weil es zunächst keine Beschwerden verursacht
3/9 Wir gehen aktuell von 500-600.000 Betroffenen in D aus. Ca. 80 % der nach 5 Monaten Betroffenen haben unveränderte Einschränkungen nach 12 Monaten. Mindestens 50 % sind eingeschränkt arbeitsfähig. Ein Viertel arbeitsunfähig. Ein Großteil geht trotz Beschwerdezunahme arbeiten.

This has been the biggest fear of mine for years. My heart goes out to Ikhlas' family. 💗
1/ Yes, adults are responsible for kids. As a former educator & nanny I was focused on kids only.
However, caring for multiple kids or one kid who is very exploratory or has disabilities, it is extremely difficult to do so in a large environment without clear boundaries.
2/ Why?
Even with two adults following 1 child closely behind, watching every move, some playground equipment has multiple exit points:

Some slides & stairs exit near or in sight of parking lots or water.

And, children are fast!

1/ $eGLD is appealing to many:

1. It created the most equitable value sharing #Blockchain Design, Tech & Economic Model.

2. Promotes #Collaboration to secure a network vs #Compete #BTC

3. EU Certified Net Negative Blockchain 🌱

4. Solves the TRUST, CENSORSHIP & DATA problems

5. It allows for DAO’s organizational structures that promote Meritocracy & change in how one Values organizations.

Ageism - a thread 1/14

Did Generation X, who birthed the web & associated technologies, sow the seeds of their own demise?

#Ageism #Inclusion

US to UK, India to Italy, the findings were broadly the same: 45-60 year olds are the most overlooked employee bracket shows @YouEmployed report

“Once you reach a certain age, it just becomes much harder to access a job opportunity” @Mona_Mourshed…

Ageism is the last acceptable prejudice argues @thischairrocks in this 12 minute TED talk

Marinesco Sjogren's syndrome disorder consists of cataracts, mental retardation ataxia, cognitive delay, and very small in stature. It is a genetic disorder and is hereditary. the SIL1 mutation on chromosome 5 was recently discovered for the syndrome. Both parents must have the
mutation to produce offspring with the disorder. the other children can be carriers or not have it.
Three of those 200 known cases are my sister and two brothers. #MSS #raredisease
Having this Rare disorder made them members of the disability community.
We spent our entire childhood at Cincinnati Childrens' Hospital for research and because of that, the rare gene has been identified as SIL1 on Chromosome 5. You can have the disorder or be a carrier. We are in their pediatric journals too, tho we had insurance.

So I’m in the @safeway with the little one. Mom wants chips, either Plain or BBQ. We’re on the chip aisle and lil man not only goes for the @ruffles but he grabs a bag of Lime & Jalapeno. Me: “Lime and Jalapeno?!?! Lil Man, them chips gone be nasty asf!” But then I thought…
with all the many bags of chips on the chip aisle, Lil Man gravitated to the one lone bag with a picture of somebody that looked like him, @antdavis23. And then I stood back and scanned the chip aisle and said...
“Wow, you mean #Ruffles is the ONLY brand featuring a Person of the Global Majority???” That’s absolutely unbelievable to me!

What is the Experiment, again?

"& their influence is now expressed in global corps &, more, in NGOs & institutions such as the #WHO & #WorldBank, the UN, & the #WEF. That they are ignorant of their own hubris is perhaps the most terrifying part of this entire scenario. This is the age of the rigid & weak ego." Image
"The eradication of the unconscious, of archaic dreams & collective imagination, the disenchantment of the world, & of the self, has taken place rapidly over the last 30 yrs ... & this disenchanted human is one who finds it hard to grasp the ideas of #class & economic #coercion." Image

SASAC's Hindutva Harassment Field Manual offers a section specifically for students -- whether they are witnessing a Hindutva attack, concerned about hate on campus, or just curious.

#THREAD #Hindutva #students #diversity #inclusion #campus
This section opens with a brief definition of Hindutva (for a fuller definition:…)

Hindutva is a far right political ideology. It can seem far away when you're attending college in the US, but Hindutva places pressure on students' self-expression.
The section offers a series of questions that can help interested students identify Hindutva influences on their campus and the harms posed to the diversity and inclusivity we all seek to cultivate on college campuses.

It is #RainbowDay of #SchoolDiversityWeek. Here is a roundup of all the issues with @JustLikeUsUK’s resources. We first wrote to @GavinWilliamson expressing concerns a year ago. It is very worrying to see
@educationgovuk still promoting them.… ImageImageImageImage
KS1 (age 5-7) maths resources which seem to be more about indoctrination than improving mathematics skills in small children.


Irresponsible attitude towards suicide. Imagine being a teen just realising you are same sex attracted & being told this means you may kill yourself? Or being told being black means you may kill yourself? Where are the @samaritans?

Algunos temas sobre la elección peruana. 1. Ninguno de los dos candidatos podrá hacer un gobierno mayoritario y necesitará hablarle al otro 50%, 2. La construcción de partidos políticos serios es urgente para fortalecer la democracia; 1/4 (paciencia que el hilo es largo!)
3. Ningún país puede llamarse exitoso cuando se mueren personas sin oxigeno, los niños tienen anemia y el campo cuenta con indigencia y abandono; 4. El chorreo no funciona, se requiere un cambio en el modelo de desarrollo; 2/4
5. Ni la #libertad ni el #anticomunismo pueden ser slogan de campaña sin considerar la #inclusión y la #inequidad; 6. el empresariado y los grupos de poder tienen que revisar su rol en el futuro del país; 7. la crisis moral de la política inunda la vida social 3/4

She's traumatised after spotting a pervert in a mixed gender changing room.
Her victim impact statement said swimming used to be her ‘happy place’ but she's now so scared that she insists on having friends in both neighbouring cubicles whenever she changes…
The only time any woman or girl is allowed to criticise unisex facilities is via a victim impact statement after being traumatised in one.
All other female voices are dismissed as TERFS'.
That pervert felt comfortable waiting in there for the children to arrive.🚩
#Inclusion Image
He tried to justify his crime to a friend by claiming:
"How was I to know she was 15? It was a matter of seconds"

Yet he'd been lurking in the cubicle waiting for a group of 11-17yr girls olds to enter the changing room🚩…

THREAD: Drama Schools - please listen. If there is only one visible demographic on your Board, Senior Management, Senior Leadership Team, Faculty, Creative Team etc bringing in a diverse cohort of students into that environment is not safe! They will feel completely "othered"
The lip service of hearing we've tried to reach out to more diverse avenues is not good enough. Make the offer irresistible for people to turn down. Start from the top down. Evolve your practice to represent today's society before putting young students into the mix at grassroots
Set the trend in training institutions as that is what feeds into the industry. Use more inclusive writing, creatives, staff across all levels and the industry will follow! Be the change rather than saying you've tried! Some simple shifts are easy but takes proper effort!

"Performative #Diversity" doesn't describe ineffective practices, but rather practices done ineffectively. It's an essential distinction that many folks in their haste to condemn shoddy work often overlook.
❌ "Unconscious bias trainings are performative diversity."
✔️ "Unconscious bias trainings, when one-off, not tied to business outcomes, not centered on actionable behavior change, and not followed by accountability efforts, become performative."
❌ "Corporate statements on social issues are performative diversity."
✔️ "Corporate statements on social issues, if not translated into business commitments on concrete timelines with real consequences for failure, become performative."

If I read #federalbudget of #Canada Correctly
@cafreeland committed $12M over THREE YEARS to TALKING about how to implement a disability benefit some point in the future (maybe)
(But $13M to ensure MAID happens)

So no #inclusion & #inclusive recovery for #ODSP #CPPD #SAID #AISH
At this rate, with what the provinces are doing to #PWD @JustinTrudeau @cafreeland You won't have to worry about #MAID or a #Disabilities Benefit cause the problem is going to "Solve itself"
They Can't Afford to live NOW Damn it !
3 weeks to invent #CERB
4 YEARS to maybe help PWD
How many more times are they supposed to say
"Maybe next year, people will care"
How many more decades ?
How many more wasted PWD lives because
Canada won't put the well being disabled people equal to those who are "Able" ?

How many more GENERATIONS @JustinTrudeau ?

“QAnon is ...a self-sustaining environment of #disinformation & #misinformation...

.. QAnon hijacks the architecture of social media..

..By controlling acceptable forms of information, QAnon traps its members in a downward spiral of radicalization.”…
“As P.W. Singer and Emerson Brooking describe in.. book Likewar: The Weaponization of #SocialMedia, this phenomenon of “junk” or “fake news” is not new. In 2016, a similar, but related, conspiracy known as “Pizzagate” resulted in a shooting at a DC area pizza parlor.” #SoMe
Above is not limited to academic articles

There has been an increase in #antiAsianhate crimes
targeting of #GOTV by minorities
including this attempt to intimidate me for my GOTV, by armed right wing

There was the #Nashvillebombing (with QAnon beliefs)

Cher.e.s collègues #physiothérapeutes / #kinésithérapeutes africain.e.s :
nous pensons que vous allez la trouver intéressante, notre séance au sujet de la @JusticeRehab au #WorldPhysio2021.

Évidemment le sujet en tant que tel vous intéressera :

Nous sommes tous au courant des pénuries de ressources de main d'œuvre, entraînant des problèmes d'accès aux services.

Il y a aussi les enjeux de #diversité et #inclusion - très pertinent pour un continent sous-représenté.
En plus de cela, nous avons développé une façon d'accommoder une conférencière qui ne s'exprime pas en anglais, tout en respectant les politiques de la @WorldPhysio1951.

On s'entend que ces accommodements auraient dû être systématiquement disponibles à tous dès le début.

For clarity: consistent to @WorldPhysio1951's
1) policies
2) EN -> "other languages" AI caption/translation initiative
the content delivered in this session can be 100% in English.

Our team developed a strategy that is consistent to #'s 1 & 2 but also #diversity & #inclusion.
Whereas #WorldPhysio2021 demands that all speakers be able to express themselves in 🇬🇧/🇺🇸, we devoted our own time & energy to maximize the #opportunities afforded by this year's online congress format.

To be specific, @anacarollucato will translate offline for @Fercockell.
As we say in Montreal, "s'pas compliqué": @Fercockell is visibly present but muted in one box while @anacarollucato is audible from another box.

If Ana is allowed to enter the Zoom meeting, #globaPT will be able to benefit from the depth of expertise that Fernanda brings.

I genuinely believe MATs could play a key role in innovating the #SEND system. This is a biased view.
MATs already lead the way on many areas of innovation in schools - curriculum, assessment, teacher training, school improvement /2
Some of the Directors of #SEND and #Inclusion I know are really experienced and dedicated leaders and they work alongside heads trying to do their best. People like @Nic_Crossley1 and @simontanner_SEN - there are many others /4

1/ #WorldHealthDay is also a good day to reflect on the opportunities that many India's health challenges bring. In this thread, we summarise some.
First, investing more in health and recognizing disease prevention and health promotion should be the topmost priority.
2/ Currently, India has one of the lowest allocations to health among all countries of the world as percentage of GDP.
3/ As a result of such a low investment in health and due to high out-of-pocket expenditure (85.6% according to the @WorldBank) millions of people are pushed further into poverty and are unable to escape.
