People ask me how is the emergency department these days, is there much #COVID19 anymore?

My observations below in a short🧵

TL/DR = the healthcare system is a disaster and it will be years before it buckle up.

The short answer in my experience/observation is, no we're not overwhelmed with #covid19 patients requiring ICU level care in the hospitals.

But...that oversimplifies the current state. Let's look at it from the hospital, clinician and patient/family perspective...

At the system level

Healthcare leadership, running large multi-million dollar organizations have spent the past 2.5yrs devoting most of their effort towards managing a crisis of epic proportions.

🌍 Our 2022 #Science Board Symposium on "The #Emergent #PoliticalEconomy or #ClimateChange" kicks off with opening remarks from President David Krakauer.

Follow this 🧵 as we provide live coverage of this event all day...
"For those of you who think behavior change can prevent #ClimateChange...behavior WILL change when climate changes. Shutdowns from the pandemic resulted in a reduction of #C02 emissions of about 7.5%."

"We *used* to talk about #ClimateChange used to be something that would happen to people in Bangladesh fifty years from now."

"Children born today are going to deal with climate change they had no role in causing."

#Putin has clearly underestimated the resolve of the #Ukrainian leadership & citizens to fight back, while also receiving widespread criticism in the form of major sanctions from the broader European community and beyond: @AlicaKizekova
Julia De Clerck-Sachsse: Beyond #Europe’s immediate allies, support in defending the current order will be hard to come by. But convincing these countries is crucial if its geopolitical awakening is to translate into a more prominent geopolitical posture.…

“Storytelling is Life.”

Our power constellation of Imagination, Empathy, Connection; all revolve around it. It is the most human and most essential tool for innovation and for social change.


#storytelling #fiction #innovation #metaverse
The ability and power to create and believe in mass fictions - money, geographical boundaries, religions - and then use them to organize & in turn to shape & change our reality is what differentiates humans from other animals. Brains 🧠 manifest.

Yuval Harari. Neil Gaiman. Kurt Vonnegut. Leslie Marmon Silko. Amanda Gorman.

@harari_yuval @neilhimself @Kurt_Vonnegut @TheAmandaGorman

I think they all believe this about the great power of our stories and fictions.

I sure do. 🤷‍♂️

Who else attended today's @OECD Development Co-operation Report 2021 launch event on shaping a just #DigitalTransformation?✋

Panelists expanded upon some of the report's key themes, including:

📅 Acting now!
⬆️ More #coordination
🖼️ Strong #frameworks
🧑‍🤝‍🧑 #InclusiveDevelopment
But we also heard a lot about #DigitalPublicGoods (#DPGs). Like... A LOT a lot.

So, what's the connection between #DPGs and a just, #inclusive #DigitalTransformation? Why have so many #donors, national #governments, and #tech experts alike expressed interest in #DPG solutions?
Well, they all agree that #DigitalTransformation is at a tipping point globally, with the divisions between wealthy and developing nations especially stark: 96% of the world's unconnected people live in developing countries.

1/10 Ten Tips for Creativity. 🧵 👇 "A good poet will usually borrow from authors remote in time, or alien in language, or diverse in interest." T.S. Eliot. Diverse sources and experiences help create better ideas. #Creative #Insights
2/10 In a world of AI, humans are more important than ever. AI can provide a space and support for human creativity. Technology is driving the need for greater creativity. We are on the road to even more creative developments. #AI #Tech #Creativity
3/10 Creative insight is often unstructured, sometimes chaotic; it needs time and space to daydream and look at things differently. It can be unpredictable and random, and other times more planned. Some create on-demand, others on the fly, and some at rest. #CreativeInsight

Where does the New Whole State System 新举国体制come from? To what extent does it help advance China's innovation in strategic sectors like semiconductors? How does it inform about the global concurrent expansion of state capitalism? Here's our new article… Image
Instead of perpetuating the geo-imaginary of Western liberal democracy vs. Chinese authoritarianism, we situate the p-2008 expansion of state capitalism in China as part of the worldwide response to the crisis of global capitalism (over-production, excess liquidity, slow growth) Image
Focusing on the NWSS as an assemblage of discourses, policies, and practices, we show how it builds on/departs from the old socialist whole state system. We argue that the Chinese state is not monolithic, unchanging, and culturally essentialist. Image

"In Deutschland wird sich das vor allem auf die Preise und weniger auf die Versorgungssicherheit auswirken" (@bmel)
<kurzer Thread>
#Versorgungssicherheit #Ernährungssicherung & #Wettbewerbsfähigkeit sind drei Wörter, die auf dem #Agrarkongress des @BMUV vor wenigen Wochen
nicht gefallen sind.
Stattdessen #Transformation #Agrarwende #Extensivierung
Ich begrüße es, wenn Landwirtschaftsminister @cem_oezdemir sich dieses Themas nun annimmt.
Ideologisch motivierte Ökoausbauquoten (30%) und pauschale Pflanzenschutzmittel-Senkungsziele (50%)
müssen neu bewertet werden! Und das muss natürlich europaweit im Fokus stehen.
Hier in Deutschland und Europa werden die Lebensmittel teurer, in ärmeren Teilen der Welt werden sie nicht verfügbar sein!
Solidarität mit den Entwicklungsländern bedeutet auch, die heimische

When I first started at the Glenrose, I had no idea it was the LARGEST rehab. hospital in North America

No idea it was BETTER KNOWN AROUND THE GLOBE than it is right here in #yeg

No idea about the incredible patient journeys

I know now. More Edmontonian's should know too...
I now know that applied innovations and health technology are driving exceptional outcomes at the Glenrose.

These outcomes help get your son, daughter, brother, sister, mom, dad, grandma, and grandma back to living their fullest lives possible...
I now know the Glenrose is an ideal incubator site, well-positioned to inform health technology transformation projects across the entire Alberta healthcare system.

But what does transformation even mean?

The word has become cliché, used mainly as a euphemism for "change."

New IMF Document Released Jan 26, 2022.

Blockchain Consensus Mechanisms - A primer for global IMF supervisors.
Differences between PoW, PoS, DPoS, & fBFT ($XRP $XLM)

#XRP #XLM Mentioned! #regulated #research #blockchain #DLT #XRPCommunity
--Thread of important quotes--
1. This is a very important document as the IMF represents a consortium of 190 countries and pushing for carbon-neutral countries by 2030.

They are sharing their views in which supervisors around the world will read and use this information to help form their opinion.
2. If you want a video overview I took 4 hours to edit and record this full document overview.

Timestamps and info are in the thread / Video description to make things easier as well!

#Arlington #COVID19 #Cases

😡: Almost no students who are exposed are being told directly of exposures or quarantined.

We encourage parents w/COVID+ kids to DIY your own reporting to parents and families where you can; assume APS isn't going to notify exposed. It's up to you. Image
#Arlington #COVID19 #Cases

The worst school, with >13% of its students catching COVID in Jan, is #Montessori Public School.

MPSA was found to be one of the worst schools for ventilation + parents reported a lack of implementation for outdoor lunch in Jan. for some classes. ImageImage
#Arlington #COVID19 #Cases

So far, YTD, two dozen Arlington public schools have had more than 10% of their student body test positive for COVID-19.

In such an environment, removing masks when community transmission is so high seems like the ultimate folly. Image

A citizen's vision on the future of the global trade finance industry and some of the main players leading the 4th Industrial Revolution in the global supply chain🌎⛓️

This is a technical deep-dive thread on regulated technology initiatives

#globaltrade #Finance #DLT #fintech
Digitalization of documents will automate and remove the mess and expense of paper (eTRs). It will also create an auditable fraud detectable ledger of transactions in which will collect big data that AI can learn from to improve efficiency
#DLT #Blockchain
Digital documents create a "Digital Twin" that is fully trackable through the lifecycle of the trade documents journey. Paper documents could not do this.

This will allow ports and shipping companies to see where their items are in transit and what to expect
