Okay, I love @POTUS #CaregiverInChief but lowering drug prices is a complicated economic web — healthcare isn’t something that you pay for like a new car, it’s mediated by a third party 1/x #drugprices #pharma #medicare #medicaid
Take International Reference Pricing for example. (Lost you already, haven’t I?) This type of negotiation tool ties drug prices to caps set using “QALYs” - Quality Adjusted Life Years 2/ #health #pharma #medicine #innovation #caregiving #advocacy…
3/ Don’t get me wrong - #health care needs to be affordable & #accessible & costs should be accessible. But tying access to medicines based on the economic “value” of a person’s life unfairly discriminated against older #adults & ppl w/ #disabilities, see…

The only feelings to center on are those of black community
Wrong use of this quote during the week of #DerekChauvinTrial

Some people “feel” things if a white male faces accountability
Amy Cooper’s feelings: call cops
Racism & racism lite has always focused on “feelings” #BLM
When @ayshakhoury or @uche_blackstock were authentic in their feelings: ended careers

Black female physician #DrSusanMoore having “knowledge” or a “voice”
while DYING
made others
*feel* “intimidated.”

This is part of a known pattern for WOC
#BLM #BlackintheIvory
This is a repeating pattern of “feelings” used against tellers of uncomfortable truths that #MLK described in the letter from the Birmingham jail.

Seeking order > justice or overpolicing are all to protect only certain “feelings” of “security” while those like #adamtoledo die.

"It remains to be seen if we'll rise to this challenge. I'm optimistic, but there's so much more we need to do. We're good at developing new technologies...are we as good at the society-scale change we need?"
- SFI/@MIT Prof Jessika Trancik on @voxdotcom:…
@MIT @voxdotcom "If you're purchasing a #CleanEnergy technology, you're creating a market that then drives more #innovation, so everybody can contribute. It DOES also mean that we can't find #SilverBullets. We can't find one really smart person to solve this. We need everyone to contribute."
@MIT @voxdotcom "The way we can get larger projects to improve more quickly is #standardization. We need to understand the parts that are holding projects back, where the inefficiencies come in. I use a broad definition of #technology because these #inefficiencies crop up in different ways."

We are now LIVE tweeting the conversation between @vestager and @SunjoyJ. Join us for an engaging discussion #Raisina2021
.@vestager: When it comes to #digitaltech, we have been timid as democracies and societies to say it should serve humans like any other tech. Regulation ensures that services are delivered in a way that can be trusted, and keeps the market open and contestable #Raisina2021
.@vestager: In democracies, the debate among politicians and citizens should be the real debate, not fragmented, manipulated debates that drive the world apart #Raisina2021

We are live tweeting the panel “Recoding Our Future: Looking Beyond the Digital Wars” with @vestager @NandanNilekani @MarietjeSchaake
Moderated by @samirsaran #Raisina2021 #RaisinaDialogue
.@samirsaran: In the absence of regulations and clear-cut rules of the road for #digital technologies, there are anxieties and tensions in need of a resolution. #Raisina2021
.@vestager: The EU's key concerns are 1) Creating a level playing field in the marketplace; 2) Insufficient enforcement of rules, that have for decades applied to the offline world, in the online world; & 3) Dignity of citizens in #democratic societies. #Raisina2021

One key rule of farming is patience.

If you are not patient enough don't worry you can still be in the agric business.
Yes, I said so because along the value chain there are many ways of making money but one key opportunity for those who want to venture is agro marketing.
There are many agricultural products people around you consume; you could start being a distributor.

In fact, most times I advise anyone who wants to go into farming or production to start off marketing.
#business #innovation #selling
That way you begin to learn some basics so when you go into your own, you would have identified the need of the customers in your niche.

For example, if you want to start a layers farm, sell eggs!

benvinda neste crítico momento nacional e planetário.

Acesse o seu melhor centro interno e coloque suas #ideias para fora, para o mundo em prol do bem-estar comum e da #recuperação da normalidade.

#Conexões e ideias fora da caixa são não-usuais e podem nos surpreender, ...
pois grande parte dos avanços (científicos, tecnológicos e até mesmo artístico-culturais) vêm de inspirações e "acasos coincidentes"... certamente inspirarão outras e conectarão mentes e propósitos semelhantes!

Que as melhores #ideias e #soluções se conectem e convirjam para...
acelerar a recuperação da #saúde e da #normalidade em toda a nação e no planeta como um todo.

Today, I met with the Chief of Defence Space Administration (DSA), Rear Admiral Williams Kayoda on the proposed establishment of the Nigeria Space Communications Satellite Centre in Ekiti State. This project complements the Ekiti Knowledge Zone initiative (EKZ).
Our administration conceived the #EKZ to take advantage of technology for #scientific research, industrialisation, and #innovation.
We envisioned the EKZ to position Ekiti for such a time as this, and we are pleased that the DSA has found in Ekiti a worthy partner for such an important project.

Covid-19: politicisation, “corruption,” and suppression of science

When good science is suppressed by the medical-political complex, people die
#Politicians and #governments are suppressing #science.
They do so in the public interest, they say, to accelerate availability of diagnostics and treatments. They do so to support #innovation, to bring #products to market at unprecedented speed.
Both of these reasons are partly plausible; the greatest deceptions are founded in a grain of truth. But the underlying behaviour is troubling.
#Science is being suppressed for #political and #financial gain. #Covid-19 has unleashed state corruption on a grand scale,

The first market place for pre IDO tokens on NFT's

@GenShards / $GS

#NFT is a hot topic this year with so many developments happening within that category

Genesis Shards is soon hitting the market and I am anticipating its arrival

The question is, what is it?
Genesis Shards aims to pioneer the #DeFi #NFT space by reimagining nonfungible tokens as DeFi options.

Just recently raised over $2.7m & Powered by Polkadot, this has caught the support of alot of familiar investors within the space.

A simple explanation of what $GS is trying to achieve is basically letting network participants safely trade pre IDO tokens by "transforming an OTC market" into an #NFT thus creating a liquidity vehicle for pre IDO tokens.

Reimagining nonfungible tokens as #DeFi options.

Here are my top notes from the book
Platform Scale by @sanguit.
Still my platform strategy bible!
#networkeffect #platform #marketplace #growth #startup #scaleup #innovation #businessmodel
The fastest scaling business models
allow external producers and consumers to
plug in and create and exchange value
with each other directly.
Value lies NOT in owning resources
but in managing the exchange of services
in an ecosystem.
The value is not created by the platform itself,
but by the interactions on top of the platform.
The platform business model
is to capture a part of the value
that is created in the meetings between users.
