Thank you @IWS_Network for giving me the opportunity to share my #story 💜 ! This a part of Voices Without Frontiers program iwsnetwork.ca/voices-without… #IWS #WomenInSTEM #VoicesIWS #ecology #conservation #biodiversity
I was born in #saopaulo, #Brazil’s largest city, very different from the #Amazon Rainforest & Rio! See me and a #samauma, the most famous Amazon tree 🌳
Also me & @IsabelaHissa in front of Sao Paulo’s #MASP (Modern Art Museum) & me and my mom in #Rio! #VoiceIWS @IWS_Network Image
I can say I lived in a great #rainforest because Sao Paulo & most of the coast of Brazil are in the Atlantic Forest 🌴🌺🐍. It is one of the 34 world’s #hotspots of #biodiversity, with more than 1500 plant species and 90% of original area loss. #VoiceIWS @IWS_Network Source: https://www.e-educa...

👀I noticed that a lot of #FUD in #blockchain #community comes from a lack of #knowledge so here I am to help everyone interested in #technology and #money, not #FUD, accusations and fear.
👇
1. Knowing the #smartcontract address of the token before listing means almost nothing, it's just another contract on the #blockchain without any functionality,

I can make thousands of those every day #shitcoin 😅
2. To make such #smartcontract tradeable it has to be added to decentralized exchange - #DEX which is implementation of #AMM #algorithm, most of dexes are working based on pairs... so we need to have #pair to be tradeable on DEX 🥰

This is EVP Margrethe @Vestager speech "Democratic values in a digitalised world" @HumboldtUni 25.10.21. It explains rationales, set up basis for what I think will be a successful #EuropeanDigitalLaw! A speech that will continue to resonate for us #Thread ec.europa.eu/commission/com…
Late 1990: large platforms “emerged and started organizing the internet for what would soon become millions of users around the world.” For 1st time "the platforms acted as global “match-makers” B2C. With “ever-growing match-making” platforms have power, & control. 1/1

(@manijadegarcia) #Epistemology thread here, discussing ideas for survival, stress management, joy & healing using the acronym ACCESS to organize the ideas.

While I take a break I'd love you to read my new related article with @sisterSTEM

(@manijadegarcia) #Epistemology refers to to 'how we know what we know.' #Epistemologies are systems of knowledge & knowing informed by the ways different groups of people navigate & make sense of the world & are related to what we justify based on what's "true" or "real."

2/
Who we are shapes our experiences & therefore our reality. So #disabled people; #women; #BlackPeople; etc. all have their own #epistemologies. Like languages, groups can borrow from each other's epistemologies to build knowledge & make meaning of the world & their lives.

“Knowledge is power, but it is much more powerful when it is shared.”

As part of @Wikimedia's @Wikipedia #WikipediaByUs campaign we celebrate access to knowledge.

Why is knowledge sharing important especially in a time of a pandemic? How can we counter misinformation? Thread 🧵
Early on in the #COVID19 pandemic there was much fear, uncertainty, and misinformation. There still is!

As we gather more data, new research, more knowledge, our understanding improves and we can counter those uncertainties.

But that knowledge needs to be accessible too...
Numbers and statistics can be overwhelming, and so needs to also be shared in a way that's simple, clear and understandable

Just like a picture can tell a thousand words, graphs can put numbers and quantities into perspective, show trends, and tell a better story

Pernah ke awak kira kelayakan loan rumah yang boleh pinjam dengan bank.

Anggaran ,bukan 100% betul.

Guna formula ni.
Thread ⬇️⬇️⬇️
Guna Debt Service Ratio (DSR) , senang cerita ialah total debt awak tak boleh lebih certain percentage kalau nak loan ada peluang lulus.

Formulae DSR % = Bulanan Kommitment / Monthly Net Income.

Let me explain sikit on this !
Monthly kommitment ialah termasuk car , personal loan , house loan , ptptn , mara , asb.

Tidak termasuk sewa rumah bulanan , insurance , astro , Netflix , bill air electric unifi dan Coway ke cuckoo.

"#Data: a new direction" - a public consultation by @DCMS on "reforms to the UK’s #DataProtection regime":

gov.uk/government/con…

The consultation ends on 19 Nov 2021, and you can respond by e-mail to DataReformConsultation@dcms.gov.uk or online here:

dcms.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_4P… Image
A quick sample of initial reactions...

We're clearly going to be hearing a lot about #LegitimateInterests, as well as #commercial and #public ones. The real question being, how do this Government's interests actually align with YOURS?

140+ pages on a Friday is a lot to digest, but @lilianedwards' "penumbra of often futile determinedly populist ideas largely not evidence-based" seems entirely consistent with @DCMS's Drunkard's Walk through #data and #ID this past year...

In this thread 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼students @MQLinguistics @Macquarie_Uni share what they've learned so far (1st quarter of semester)

Favorite facts about #languages and #cultures in #contact
In #Arabic we say: “Footprints indicate trajectory”, but I never thought that a wheel would reveal a culture. This is how #cultures can be traced through #languages. The reading made me feel like I am solving a puzzle more than exploring languages.
Think twice before starting to learn #English, cuz you’ll end up learning even more -- #German and #French, and more …
After all, it was the Anglo-Saxons and Normans who influenced the vocabulary!!
English is a mixed #language!

I highly recommend checking out Dr. Ray Kurzweils works! I sadly had to work the night shift, (guarding that CF-18 I'd shared the pic of previously) and was too bagged to see him in person at @UNBFredericton/@UNB at a speaking event.

Ever wondered y gamma is the enemy of straddle / strangle sellers and what it means?

Presume readers are aware of option Greeks meaning...

To understand , first ...

Relationship between delta, gamma, theta and option premium.
....
....

Theta + (int Rate x Underlying price x Delta) + ( 0.5 x variance of underlying x Underlying price x Underlying Price x Gamma ) = Int rate x Option premium.

Strangle and straddles are delta neutral setup;For a delta neutral setup, the second term becomes zero; Hence,
...
....

Theta +
(0.5 x variance of UL x UL price x Underlying price x Gamma)
= Int rate x option premium

Straddle and strangles have typically zero delta at initiation; they also have positive theta, meaning they gain over time assuming other components of option r constant ..

A kutty #Story
Teacher addresses a student & asks: “How many kidneys do we have?"
“Four!", The backbencher student responds.
“Four? Haha,” The teacher was one of those who took pleasure in picking on his students' mistakes and demoralizing them.
“Bring a bundle of grass, because we have a donkey in the room," the teacher orders a front bencher.
“And for me a coffee!”, the backbencher student added.
The teacher was furious & expelled the student from the room.
The student was, by the way, a famous humorist namely
Aparicio Torelly Aporelly (1895-1971), better known as the "Baron de Itararé".
On his way out of the classroom, the student still had the audacity to correct the furious teacher:
"You asked me how many kidneys‘ *we have*. "We have four: two of mine & two of yours. *‘We have’*

First, Why, do you want to manipulate people? Don't answer that loudly. Just read, on.
Manipulation is to influence people skillfully to your advantage, in a unfair manner. Almost a con game. All con artists have mastered the art of manipulation.

This cartoon from @thetoonguy today in @TheHinduMag today, which captures the reality of knowledge supremacy, triggered an old memory that had been buried deep inside for 13 years.
The Children's #Science Congress was taking place in Baramati, Maharashtra in 2008. I had travelled with an incredible bunch of geohydrologists from ACWADAM, Pune, to see how #science was being encouraged for school goers.
I landed up in a room where children from across the country were making presentations on #biological #sciences. One presenter was from #Nagaland & she made a fantastic presentation on local #rice varieties in her village.

The game had its origin in India and was called #Moksha Patam or Parama Padam or Mokshapat. It was used to teach Hindu Dharma and Hindu values to children. The British renamed it #snakes and #Ladders.

The game was created by the 13th-century poet saint Gyandev. The ladders in
the game represented virtues and the #snakes indicated vices. The game was played with cowrie shells and dices. Later through time, the game underwent several modifications but the meaning is the same i.e good deeds take us to heaven and evil to a cycle of re-births. Certain
references take the game back to the 2nd century BC.

In the original game square, 12 was faith, 51 was Reliability, 57 was Generosity, 76 was #Knowledge, and 78 was Asceticism. These were the squares where the ladder was found. Square 41 was for Disobedience, 44 for Arrogance,

OH, BY THE WAY ..

If you were struggling for money & you were A music artist living on the streets & or, trying to provide for your Family, you are an artist that is most likely working hard at YOUR #PASSION in this lifetime ON THIS TIMELINE. SO, not everyone who is an artist
was able to be signed by Record labels that were not INFILTRATED by evil ..
NOT EVERY ARTIST MAY HAVE HAD #KNOWLEDGE about all the evil that was happening. MOST artists may have just been focused on PROVIDING for their families. So, yes, there are most likely MANY music artists
that signed the dotted line to an evil Label or whatever. IS IT YOUR JOB TO JUDGE THESE PEOPLE WHO SIGNED THE DOTTED LINE?

Why the name #AUTO for the most popular vehicle in #Chennai?

One early morning some time in 2016, on reaching Central Station from Coimbatore, I engaged an Auto to go home.
The Auto driver appeared to be a well informed person.

I struck up a conversation with him enquiring about competition that he faced from call taxis. He admitted that it was tough but was confident that autos would survive. While he pointed out the short life of call taxi companies like Bharathi, NTL, Friends etc.

He was confident that Autos would survive.
*Suddenly he asked me whether I knew the meaning of #Auto
I said "No".
He surprised me with his explanation.
During the British Rule, medicines were transported to hospitals from the Central Medical Depots initially by
