Di seguito alcune considerazioni sul mondo #social, #FreeSpeech e su #TrumpBanned.

Partiamo dal principio, inutile dire che l'avvento di internet prima e dei social ha cambiato radicalmente il ns. modo di rapportarci con i ns. simili, con i media, con la politica.
Molto spesso sentiamo parlare del concetto di neutralità della rete #NetNeutrality ovvero obbligare i fornitori di connettività a garantire senza limitazioni di accesso e velocità a qualsiasi servizio o piattaforma internet e/o senza avantaggiare un fornitore rispetto ad un altro
Cosa c'entro questo con i social?
Mi sono chiesto tante volte se i social con le loro piattaforme dovessero anch'essi garantire una sorta di neutralità dei contenuti e far circolare liberamente il "pensiero" degli utenti.
La risposta che mi sono sempre dato è no, per una serie

Long long go, in a land far far away, there was a country of *believers* called Country *A*. 1/n

People of Country A believed pretty much anything that was sold to them on the idiotbox and through a ritual called *nationalization*. As long as anything was framed in terms of this ritual, most believers bought it lock, stock and barrel.

In country A, there was this company *B* that made a product *mB*. The business of that company was regulated by a government department named *C* atop which a functionary presided called *D*

One year, a bad plague hit the country. People fell sick, and some died.

#Expertopinion | Russian peacekeepers in Azerbaijan

@MMuradov3: The Second Karabakh war ended with the 10 November trilateral agreement, which stipulates deployment of 1,960 Russian peacekeeping troops within bigger part of ex-NKAO and Lachin corridor. (1/15)
This clause, which means the appearance of the Russian militaries in legitimate capacity on Azerbaijani territory for the first time since 1992 (excl. the staff of the Gabala radar station closed in 2012, which did not represent a major political issue for Azerbaijan)... (2/15)
...has received a mixed reaction in Azerbaijan which has long been taking a principled position on the presence of foreign troops. However, there has hardly been any better option right now, mainly for the following reasons. (3/15)

Vi voglio raccontare un po' della mia #vita in questa #pandemia senza fine.
Io sono quello sfigato/fortunato che è riuscito perfino a fare una polmonite (tampone questo sconosciuto) al 20/02 prima dell'esplosione definitiva dei contagi.

Era la seconda in 2 anni... la sfiga ci vede benissimo.
Da quel momento come tutti ci siamo dovuti adattare ad una vita e ad un nuovo modo di vivere.

Richard Keen, the 4th ever & 1st Tory Advocate General for Scotland, has resigned over Tory plans to break the law. This is a big development - a sign of breakdown in the UK constitution. But what is the Advocate General for Scotland & why does it matter? #LongThread! #skotia
The AG, a UK Government legal officer, has significant influence over the limits of devolution & what legislation can be passed in Scotland. This is a key consequence of the Scotland Act 1998. The AG can challenge legislation in the courts, which can lead to it being struck down.
The AG also communicates devolution & Scots law matters to UK Government departments. Separately the AG represents the UK Government as respondent in Scottish court cases, for instance in the Wightman Brexit case and Cherry prorogation case.

-Banning the importation of rice was a blunder; it was unnecessary + it increases the price of rice while forcing speculative impact on general inflation.

-Insistence upon self-efficiency in food was far-fetched.

In this thread I'll explain the above two points.

#LongThread:
Mr. Buhari was right from the logic of the pioneer of cameralism, Philiph Willem Van Honick, in his dissection of "Austria Over All, If She Only Will in 1684”. Surely any country looking to develop economically should produce all the commodities it needs for local consumption.
But then he was wrong from the logic of the Scottish economist, Mr. David Ricardo; for it was later realized that any country looking to develop economically should produce only the commodity in which it has a comparative advantage upon other countries.

With @csiriict we did a study from 10 Sewage Treatment Plants (STP) and a gated community in Hyderabad to look for SARS-CoV-2 RNA. These STPs get 40% of sewage in the city. We estimated viral load in those samples using RT-PCR.

Feces are known to contain non-infectious RNA copies of the coronavirus.

Sewage treatment plants that get samples from a huge part of a city become good candidates for checking for the viral RNA from many people together.

We estimated viral load in those samples using RT-PCR. We estimated the number of people shedding the virus using calculation methods and data from previously peer-reviewed published work. Some of the key reviews are: sciencedirect.com/science/articl…

#LongThread alert: There’s some justifiable worry that #musictheory’s current outrage is just words and not substance, and that focusing on the identities of the people we talk about in our curriculum/scholarship but not the concepts themselves will still leave us with
2/x white supremacist infrastructure (i.e. if we swap a Schubert piece for a piece by a woman and/or POC that we can teach the same way as that original Schubert piece, we retain the curriculum’s original architecture).
3/x With the caveat that a twitter thread is a terrible place for this and that I am a flawed actor in all this who is constantly learning more about my own biases (and that this might suck the anonymity out of the review process for a piece I’m working on), here's a few thoughts

#LongThread on #COVID19 #ICU Management in #Pakistan:
Spent last 15 days going thru the decaying orders of our healthcare system embattling Covid-19. A close relative was on bag-mask oxygen in emergency unit of a tertiary care. He developed SOB, fever on Eid day.
For days we were confused whether to treat it on Cytokine Release syndrome lines or not. Strong Neutrophilia was suggestive of sepsis as well. So some of my consultant friends cautioned against actemra.&we lost valuable time. Punj. gov criteria for actemra added to the confusion.
They had 3 lab parameters (ferritin, Crp, d-dimer) and all 3 of them had to be raised but they were never increased in unison; were rather increasing in tandem. Both these together meant we didn’t administer actemra until it was v late.

4-5 yrs ago, I smelled aroma of daal-makhani at office, my American colleague was having Madras Lentils, I was little surprised. He introduced me to Tasty Bite. His family/kids love them for its mild taste & creamy texture. 60sec microwave in a BPA free pouch(convenience)

a real good practice is to get to know and understand yourself. What motivates you? What makes you happy? When you most productive? How do you like to work? All those questions appear from time to time but people rarely notice and highlight them

1/19

#GTD #motivatio #longthread
A good start will just find questions that will help you and of course answer them for yourself.

2/19
But sometimes it's hard to tell what is really important for you. Well, in this case, it's really helpful to keep a diary. Even after a week you can read through your notes and understand what did you do for the last week. What was there and what was missing?

1/ Several people have asked me about Facebook’s advertiser verification process over the past few weeks. Who we verify, how we do it, and where we’ll go next. Here are some thoughts #longthread 😄
2/ First, let's start with what Facebook already does. We require a wide swath of people and businesses to go through some sort of verification.
3/ That includes political advertisers in over 30 countries, or Pages with either large followings in the US and Pages we think are trying to mislead people.

Just moderated an interesting open & friendly discussion on pro’s and cons of anonymous grading. #LongThread @RUReflects @Radboud_Uni
First, why do it? Pro#1: people, even academics, even philosophers, even ethicists - indeed probably those in particular – are prone to bias scholar.google.nl/scholar?q=anon…

Bias against who? E.g. students who are not like you, too much like you, not good at grammar, not native speakers, dyslectic, shy, introvert, female, not white, too poetic, not poetic enough, etcetera, etcetera.

È da qualche tempo che osservo la deriva/spirale d'odio in cui ci stiamo man mano avvitando.
Ci si rifugia dietro la libertà di pensiero e di espressione per poter dire qualsiasi cosa, incuranti del male, delle ferite che quelle parole scritte o pronunciate provochino
Perché ci sentiamo in dovere di esternare con il mondo il nostro pensiero?
Perché a prescindere della posizione occupata all'interno della società non riusciamo a valutarne l'impatto?
Siamo nell'era della comunicazione e imho stiamo sbagliando qualcosa.
Non è più dialogo ma tanti
monologhi con un IO.
Abbiamo smarrito il noi
Siamo sempre in contrapposizione con qualcuno o con con qualcosa.
Siamo delle fazioni che cercano di emergere, di primeggiare a discapito delle altre.
La parola comunità e quasi diventata un termine anacronistico.

#LongThread. Over the last few days, have realised that many people I know are battling loneliness and depression that I thought. The reasons are many, academic stress, work stress, bad boss, EMI problems, teenage kids being difficult, marriage not working out. The works.
One thing common is most cases is lack of a support system. Most people live in urban centres, in nuclear families, often commuting long hours. No time on weekdays to exercise, de-stress or even to talk to family members. Weekends are spent doing chores, or in mindless shopping.
Many don’t have siblings, or the bonds have withered by distance, old friendships are reduced to spending wishes on WA or sharing memes. Social media has taken the place of family togetherness. And that exaggerates the problem. Many are seeking professional help.

#Famiglia - #Lavoro - #Scuola

Prendo spunto dalla manca iscrizione di mio figlio ad una scuola pubblica di #Arese(mi) perché hanno avuto troppi iscritti.
Ecco sono 10 anni che i dati ci dicono che c’è un calo demografico strutturale in #Italia che non riusciamo ad
arrestare.
Si cerca ciclicamente di fare qualcosa per invogliare a formare un nucleo familiare e conseguenze procreare.
Siamo arrivati alla ricette recenti del podere al sud per il terzo figlio.
Io ho avuto la fortuna/sfortuna di conoscere colei che sarebbe stata la mia compagna
di vita e la madre dei miei figli nella terra del federalismo fiscale ovvero la Lombardia e Milano.
Nonostante fossi alla guida dell’azienda di famiglia ho deciso di rimettermi in gioco e ripartire da zero a nebbia city.
Abbandonando sole, mare, amici, per creare una famiglia.

Caro ministro @luigidimaio dedico a lei e al #GovernoDelCambiamento queste mie riflessioni sulla #povertà.
Questa parola, magica come #dignità , tanto cara a lei e ai Vs. sostenitori.
Che avete deciso di propagandare attraverso lanci #social, balconate e che secondo
Voi con un #decreto - i cui effetti sul mercato del #lavoro saranno dirompenti ma in senso negativo - potevate eliminarla.
Mi spiace darle questa brutta notizia, ma né lei né nessun altro politico in questa terra, potrà abolire o eliminare la povertà.
Perché purtroppo la smania
protagonismo e l’ignoranza in materia economica vi porta a fare scelte irrazionali.
La povertà non è solo un problema economico, tutt’altro, è principalmente un problema culturale.

“I social e il peso delle parole”

Dopo aver assistito alle notizie provenienti da oltremanica su #Brexit e le varie dimissioni di ministri britannici ecco arrivare la bufera sul presidente di commissione Bilancio #Borghi.
Proviamo a fare chiarezza partendo dal tweet
dove #Borghi risponde all’account @vendutoschifoso e alla sua provocazione che “Senza #itaexit sarà considerato #traditore quindi se non vuole avere rimpianti faccia quello che tutti #noi #vogliamo” con “prima questo #noi deve diventare maggioranza alle urne”.
Quindi il prof.

1- Oggi avrei voluto fare un thread #sovranista per festeggiare il #contoestero, ma non c’è la faccio, è più forte di me...
La prendo larga per parlarVi di #Tav ma in particolar modo di #Torino, di #m5s e della #Appendino e del #nord.
Partiamo da #candidaturaolimpica
2-Prevista dal #Coni inizialmente con 3 città #Torino-#Milano-#Cortina e che invece nei sogni della #Appendino si doveva tramutare in una candidatura unica per bissare Torino2006.
Scontrandosi con il suo stessi assessori e la sua base votante che ricordiamoci essere #noqualcosa.
3-Dovendo però avere anche l’appoggio del governo per la copertura dei costi previsti.
Perché ricordiamo le #Olimpiadi generano un indotto enorme ma difficilmente coprono i costi sostenuti per l’organizzazione.
E qui entrano in gioco le sponsorizzazioni private, che le 2 città...
