In Feb 2020 #SARSCOV2 #COVID19 was
risk to the entire #society

In Apr 2022, COVID-19
it is #individual risk.

Why there shouldn’t be any universal restrictions?

Why schools should remain open?

Why masks should be voluntary?

Context of arguments is #India

A thread 🧵

1/n
In Feb 2022, #SARS CoV2 was a new or novel virus.

Everyone was susceptible as no one had prior immunity.

The risk by age & other factors was unknown & unpredictable.

The only way was ‘universal restriction’
to slow down the transmission, prepare health services

2/n
And developing scientific and epidemiological understanding.

The precautions such as
physical distancing and
face masks also has to be mandatory.

All of These were new to people.

Citizen not following these whd hv increased the risk to other, which was unknown.

Chess Grandmaster Anna Muzychuk, on refusing to play in Saudi Arabia.
'In a few days, I'll lose two world titles, one after another. Because I decided not to go to Saudi Arabia. I refuse to play by special rules, wear abaya, be accompanied by a man,

so I can get out of the hotel, so I don't feel like a second-class person.

'I will follow my principles and not compete in the fast chess and blitz world championship where in just 5 days I could have made more money than with dozens of other combined tournaments. —->

This is all very unpleasant, but the sad part is that no one seems to care. Bitter feelings, but I can't go back.'

1/5 #TropiCon20 Identifying individuals is crucial for #conservation. If individual identity is known #supervised #classification can be used. What if we don’t know who is calling? We tested if #unsupervised methods can distinguish between #gibbon females (listen below).
2/5 #TropiCon20 Gibbons are #apes found in Southeast #Asia. The recording above is from one #gibbon female, and the recording below is from a different #gibbon female. Can you hear (or see) the difference? We classified > 30 females with > 95% accuracy using #supervised methods.
3/5 #TropiCon20 #Supervised methods need labelled training #data; #unsupervised techniques don't. We used an existing dataset of #gibbon female calls to test how well three #unsupervised algorithms could distinguish between #gibbons. #Affinity propagation #clustering did best!

Personal "data #ownership" - "pure" or otherwise - is a #misnomer, and #rights frameworks clearly struggle when predicated upon notions of #DataSubjects - and when the #value (to others) of information about us lies largely in its #relationships (to others').
I'd unpack @martintisne's first point a bit further; the impacts we experience are of course based in the way we are #discriminated (for or against) by those who treat us as members of a #class by virtue of shared #characteristics on which they pass #judgement - but is that...

While I share concerns around 'purely' individual(istic) rights - "every woman for herself"! - the perils of #GroupRights lie in the degree to which they can undermine what must remain...

#BuenaNoticia que estábamos esperando

Protocolo de #PoolTesting de @INSColombia para lugares con positividad ≤ 5%.

Metodología evaluada y validada satisfactoriamente.

Permitirá a lugares con baja positividad expandir rápidamente su capacidad de testeo para #mantener control.
¿En qué consiste el #PoolTesting?

Cuando la prop. de positividad es baja, la mayoría de reactivos e infraestructura se gastan en pruebas negativas.

El #PoolTesting es una forma de optimizar recursos haciendo varias pruebas simultáneamente por #grupos (por ejemplo 5 muestras).
Si alguno de los grupos llega a salir #positivo, se procede entonces a hacer nuevamente la prueba de forma #individual a cada una de las muestras que conforman el #Pool o #Grupo

Dado que la mayoría serán negativas, por probabilidades se espera una expansión de la capacidad.

2/ hardly anybody really studies how to #design #software for human-to-human interaction.

so many of them just throw things together and allow themselves to be surprised by the social interactions that develop around their software.
#HCI
3/ As soon as the Internet happened, s/w stopped being solely about computer-to-human interaction and started being about human-to-human interaction. We had new applications like the Web, email, IM and forums, all of which were abt humans communicating with 1 another through s/w.

A mí me encantan las teorías e investigación del área de Sistemas de Información 😍, por mi formación y participación, pero además porque hablan de situaciones a las que estamos expuestos muy probablemente día a día en esta era de la información y la tecnología 🤗.
Les comparto entonces un listado de los temas generales en los que se categorizan las teorías de esta área:

I am currently in #Singapore. And it is so impressive to see a good #Covid19outbreak response in action. What is most apparent is the appearance of #individual actions and #socialresponsiblity. From up2date screening questions @ the airport, hotel, & other communal places 1/3
to no handshaking, available hand sanitizer in public places, & temperature taking in hotels (more for reassurance than effectiveness). The communication on Singaporean TV and news outlets is informative and not sensationalist & this has a positive effect on residents 2/3
From Taxi drives to restaurant servers, Singaporeans seem proud of their government and speak sensibly about #Covid19 and the current global situation. The lesson I take away: A well informed population that trusts experts & their government is key to combating fake news 3/3

#Option #Greeks Simplified

#Options are definitely more complicated than equity or futures.

Their prices don’t just go up and down.

They also fluctuate based on things like #time, #implied #volatility and #underlying stock movements.
#Options #Greeks Are Simply Mathematical Shortforms

Most of you would remember from school that mathematical formulas sometimes were #Greek letters like Pi and #Delta. The same is true for options.

Don’t let them overwhelm you or scare you.
They’re simply #mathematical words to explain some very basic principles.

#Greeks Describe the Behavior of #Individual #Options

Each #greek can help predict how it will behave under different circumstances and how options prices would change.

@EricHolder has asked an important question:

#When was #America #ever #great?

I realize that there is a nearly unavoidable tendency to snort and spew one's coffee when they hear or read his question for the first time. But, honestly, isn't it worth the exercise to answer it?
So, @EricHolder, I'm going to do just that, and I'm going to ask my ragtag bag of followers and detractors to contribute as well.

I'm going to offer my evidence of moments of American greatness. And I'm going to ask those that read this thread to do the same.
But wait!

There's more!

I'm going to ask my detractors and antagonists (are you seeing this @fedupaton) to contribute as well, and will welcome from them both moments of greatness and moments of shame.

#OSHO

A real commune, real #communism, will create equal #opportunities for #growth, but accept the #uniqueness of each #individual.

A commune means that we have pooled all our energies, our #money, everything into a single pool which will be taking care of all the #people
There should be absolute #freedom of expression in words or in creativity. Each individual should be respected as he is, not according to any ideal. His basic #needs must be fulfilled, and as the commune becomes richer, every individual should be provided with #comfort & #luxury
All the communes should be #interdependent, but they will not exchange money.

#Money should be dissolved. It has done tremendous harm to humanity – now it is time to say goodbye to it because money can be #accumulated. Money is one of the #enemies of man.
