This is hard to write but it is true for many. What I’m about to say is a harsh reality of what people go through.

What I am about to say is also the reason why a lot of people don’t ask for help.

People do not ask for help because of the fears and stigmas that exist.

Here Is Something to think about,

What if you were a #singleparent with a #child

You work full time for $15.00/hr

You take home roughly $960.00 per paycheck (bi-weekly after taxes)

#singleparent #parenting #Blessed #grateful #calgary #calgarylife #alberta #yyc

Your bills per month:

$1,000 or more for rent
$150 or more for cable/internet
$250 or more for utilities
$150 per month for car insurance

So let’s do the math

You bring home about
$1,920.00 a month

Your bills average about $1,500(give or take)

Because Jeremy #Corbyn wasn’t just up against the conservatives and their rightwing media, but from the enemy within masquerading as #Labour, who diverted members money to sabotage the general election in favour of the conservatives, they aided and abetted Johnson his majority
rather than have a socialist government led by Jeremy Corbyn! Their plotting and scheming started just five minutes after Jeremy #Corbyn’s first landslide leadership win as the leaked documents have shown, which the establishment stooge #Starmer keeps trying to bury
along with the “#Forde” report!
Those rightwing anti socialist infiltrators would prefer the party to fall into decline than honour the parties social democratic principles!
They knew that by forcing a people’s vote, which Starmer did behind Jeremy’s back at the labour conference

Lord #Mandelson, the former architect of New #Labour, the man who did more to bring about Labours defeat with his so-called #People's' Vote has accused some within his party of conspiring against the leader. Is he taking the proverbial?
This is the same Peter #Mandelson who said: I try to undermine Jeremy #Corbyn 'every single day' & continues to do so !
He added: “Why do you want to just walk away and pass the title deeds of this great party over to someone like Jeremy #Corbyn? I don’t want to, I resent it, and I work every single day in some small way to bring forward the end of his tenure in office.

- Over the past few years, the #government has proposed to #amend several #environmental #laws and create entirely #new ones.
- The government has also proposed very large #industrial and #developmental projects which would effectively ruin the environment of the areas. [1/10]
#KenBetwa #River Linking #Project
This project would drown almost the entirety of the #PannaNationalPark, a richly biodiverse national park, hosting tigers, leopards, and even critically-endangered #vultures.

2018-19: #Holistic Development of #Islands

Western but more importantly #African #conservation biologists and #communities have clearly evidenced the well managed hunting - inc trophy hunting - is a valid utilitarian conservation tool that is need to protect land from converting to agriculture or development /1
This is because the real and present danger for large and charismatic wildlife in #Africa is habitat loss and quality - including human-wildlife conflict - where #people are effected or killed by such #wildlife and retaliation on wildlife occurs - e.g. /2
While stories of #human hardship in living with #wildlife - and the same dynamics of wanting to develop and use land never reaches UK news - what does is dangerous mis-information from a range of sources but mainly western and #celebrity backed #NGOs /3…

I have a few things to say on the subject. They still have *my* #Dashcam, #Tools and other #PersonalEffects (including my cell & ID, wallet, etc...) that they took out of my car and off me, illegally - with footage of/as they arrested me- illegally.🙃#CriminallyNotNotResponsible
Reminder for non-#Fredericton, New Brunswick folks - Fredericton Police Force (#FPF) don't have #Dashcams, and 𝐧𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫 𝐡𝐚𝐯𝐞.
Now let those last two words settle on you.

Yes, you're right. That does mean everyone arrested, ever in Fredericton area, by #FPF - has only ever been arrested on cops words, and the words of others that reinforce the cops' story.

And thats true TODAY, whenever you read this.

"The World Only Needs One"

The #DigitalAge using one world #currency was not possible, now that we are able to connect with people around the globe in seconds, one currency would be ideal.

Continue Thread...
With that thought in mind think about the #cryptocurrency market, so many to choose from yet only #one is needed.
#Cryptocurrency will be made illegal This is not a "maybe" this is a warning. Nothing is left up to chance, our world is always planned years in advance. If you fail to plan you are planning to fail and failure is not an option.

1/ Let us share best practices for using #Tags

By the way this is not a question for any specific tool, rather a broad PKM discussion. The concept of #tags has been around for years now in many products. They exist in @evernote, @RoamResearch, @obsdmd, @logseq, @todoist, etc.
2/ Taggin is even used outside of software. I remember doing GTD years ago, all on paper, and using @ for context and # for categorization. All written out on paper, summarized daily and weekly into lists. (Those were wonderful, simpler times)
3/ Tagging things I found to be very useful in managing present. Do this today #task. Do this at @home. #pending, #somdayMaybe, #people. By having a dozen or so tags, I can nicely focus in on actions and responsibilities in my life.

Assuming you're not using aliases, a plain text search in @obsdmd for "[[page]]" within quotations pulls up the backlinks for that page. Searching for ".png" will pull up all of your pngs. There's a lot of flexibility that comes from searching strings when everything is in markup
Here I have an embedded query to find all my notes directly dealing with DSLs (domain-specific languages). I get this by searching for file names that have DSL in them. In Roam I might have had [[A [[DSL]] speeds up the author and gives them the ability to write from anywhere]] ImageImage
Here I'm trying out using namespacing in a @dendronhq style. I have an embedded search looking for pages that have Clojure and function in the title. It's not officially supported in Obsidian, but with searches embedded on pages, I'm able to do it quite flexibly ImageImage

#Community Building is something that I’ve been doing for the past 18 years. I wasn’t able to gauge it’s true potential initially, but my journey led to a series of invaluable learnings.

Happy to share them on this #thread with an inspiration drawn frm @DavidSpinks. Dive in!👇
☝️ First things first, building a #community begins with meeting people (one at a time) and forming meaningful relationships. Always try and help people first before asking for anything in return!
Do not unplug your GIVER switch! 🔌
A #community is not built on the basis of expectations, so don’t really expect anything or don't help with the objective of getting something in return.

-You can get all the education and qualifications you want.

-You can amass all the wealth in this world.

-You can ascend to very high echelons of power and life.

But the greatest thing you would ever achieve is the positive effect you had on other humans while you lived...
@JimCarrey once said, the greatest currency there ever is, is the (good) effect we have on #people's lives.

This has been my guiding principle in life & the reason why I am always very delighted when random people, mostly people who follow me on facebook, walk up to me..
To thank me for being a source of inspiration to them. It gives me great joy that I am giving back, in the little ways I can. I am a product of inspiring coaches & mentors. They lit the way for people like me & we also in our little capacity, are lighting the way for others..

@KeesvdPijl1 Rapid opponents of the #Trump admin📝turned to creating tremendous social, economic & political chaos by massively overblowing the severity of widespread viral pathogen📝metaphor for the political infection they believed afflicted the country.

@KeesvdPijl1 No one interest📝group could have achieved this on its own. It required a perfect storm [no] conspiracy much less a specific plot. It only requires that the right confluence of events #Event201🚩present themselves in a way that prompts action & cooperation

The BMJ, London, UK
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, and it is harmful to #public health.

À la rédac de Sesame on a pour habitude de bien cacher bien notre attrait pour les people. Mais cette semaine, nous laissons parler notre fibre Voila-Gaci ! C’est le #thread du mercredi, quand les people investissent dans… l’alimentaire. Déroule et fais tourner ! ⤵️⤵️
Alors pour être OK, définissons ce qu’est un #people. On va dire, pour nous, que c’est quelqu’un de célèbre qui a à voir avec le show bizz, le sport, l’entertainement ou la culture… Bref, une star quoi… Qui gagne suffisamment bien sa vie pour avoir des sous à dépenser
Alors bien sûr, dans l’alimentaire, il y a le vin, avec quelques exemples anciens et de belles réussites d’ailleurs, mais il y a aussi la restauration… Les people trouvent aussi de l’attrait aux produits émergents, vegan, plant-based…

This evening at 4:45pm we got a call from a social worker that works with seniors. She called us in a frenzy asking us for immediate help.

She told us of an emergency so extreme that her voice shook with concern over one of her clients.

#YYC #Calgary #CalgarySeniors #hope
This is what she said:

"Hello Jen, I was hoping I would be able to contact you before I left my work for the day in regards to a rather important situation that came across my desk this afternoon. I hope you have the time to chat?"

I said "Yes of course, how can we help?" #care
She said "We have a senior lady that is struggling so much that she has been going door to door asking for food from others in her complex."

I was quiet and honestly speechless.

I said "Of course we can and we will help. What is it that you need." #FEEDYYC #FoodHamper #helping

@meenakandasamy Dear Sister,
Burning Manu smriti, wouldn't result into social development.
1. Less than 1% of #Hindus might know about it.
2. With the technological advancements and governance transparency, the walls between different #caste and #religion are breaking. 1/3
@meenakandasamy 3. The #people are becoming more self-centric, #opportunistic and mercenary; may be including you n me unintentionally.
5. Spreading #hate would cause an irreversible damage to the #society and would be irrelevant in nearby robotic age. 2/3
@meenakandasamy The #solutions:
1. #DigitalIndia in each governance process for transparency and better distribution of the resources to the needy ones.
2. #leaders with no self-centric, opportunistic and mercenary attributes.
3. #PopulationControlBill for balancing with nature. 3/3
