1/23 #Economics of #OpenPit #Mining & its impact on a Mining Co's success. This brilliant pic of Letseng diamond mine in Lesotho shows the results of sensible & good strategic & tactical mine #planning. Take a careful look and then compare this pic to the next one of
2/23 Guyana Goldfields, which is an example of what NOT to do. At first glance, the two pits don't look too dissimilar, right? But what from these pictures is it that lead to the disaster & ultimate collapse sale of $GUY, while GEM Diamonds is still doing great? Can you tell?
3/23 The answers is in the phasing of the pit & ramp access. GUY's next pushback (yellow) is constantly cutting off access (red) to the cut below from blasting -The only cut which supplies the gold. They have to mine the yellow cut/pushback to expose ore later on but it looks

Key messages: evidence shows archaeology is not a block to planning applications, loosening planning laws undermines practice of sustainable development, and the NPPF is the only real protection afforded to non-designated archaeology. @BBCNews @BBCScienceNews @SkyNews @Telegraph
Protection of archaeological remains in England is very weak compared to other countries e.g. Ireland, unless remains are Scheduled or in an Area of Archaeological Importance. Let's not erase the past by not even looking for archaeology before development.

I'm hearing rumours that some in the government want to kick start the economy by liberalising (ie weakening) the #planning system. A reminder: this has been tried umpteen times before and it doesn't work. 1/
1. Good planning aids development by providing certainty for developers.
2. It creates better places. Well planned areas (good design, space for nature etc.) create more wealth than poorly planned places. 2/
3. Development is more likely to be held back by lack of demand or inflated land prices or supply side difficulties (e.g. an outdated house building industry dominated by a few big players) than by planning restrictions. 3/

This thread is about understanding Lebanon’s #budget in few questions.
Another thread will explain #Citizen_Budget 2020.
@OpenBudgets 👇
What is the #Budget?
Article 3 of the "Public Accounting Law" defines #budget as “a legislative instrument in which national #revenues & #expenditures are estimated for the upcoming year & by which #tax collection & spending are allowed”.
State #budgets have evolved to become a tool of #foresight, #planning and #accountability based on programs and #performance assessments.

1. I want to share some thoughts about how I’ve been feeling lately, in part because I suspect that many of you are feeling the same way and, for me at least, there is comfort in solidarity. #COVID19 #academic #AcademicChatter #medicine #healthcare
2. This has been a tough week, and I’m afraid that it is only the beginning. We are on spring break and I had a long list of tasks I’ve needed to accomplish but it has been difficult with everything that has been going on.
3. It isn’t just the trip cancelations and the challenge of having to move two highly interactive seminars into some sort of online format. It is the growing recognition that we are in the midst of an outbreak...

My previous threads on #qualitative #interviewing referred mainly to one-to-one, semi-structured interviews. Research interviews, however, can be conducted in more than one way. #1 @AcademicChatter #phdchat #QualitativeResearch
@AcademicChatter In this thread, some different ways to conduct interviews are discussed, so have a look and see whether a different format could help answer your research question better. #2
@AcademicChatter The social research literature categorises research interviews roughly into #structured, semi-structured, and unstructured interviews based on the degree of #planning or preparation from the interviewer’s side and the #leeway available for participants in their responses. #3

1/ #Rialto #Dublin Short thread of related pieces you may like to have in one place for all to see. @libertiesdublin ⬇️
Some great photos there too from Lisa Cassidy
3/ Some telling commentary, and another great picture of mass of structure as would have been up to empty in 2014, pre 2015 fire, but painted. Motor business there for quite a while.

Happy Friday, friends.

It's time I tell you about all of of the amazing people that helped make this year's @wpcampusorg conference not only happen, but be a beautifully inclusive and engaging event for our community. #WPCampus The organizing committee bought me a beautiful photo frame from our host college, Lewis and Clark College. It now sits on my desk and is home to a photo of the organizing team.
First, a HUGE thanks to the 2019 organizing team. We met every Tuesday to plan the event. They gave me the best gift, the photo and frame seen in my previous tweet.

This was the first year that I was not the chair of the team and I'm so grateful to @ncsumarit and @galewallace who stepped up when I needed them most to co-chair the event. They killed it with their project management and always seemed to be a few steps ahead to get things done.

Today, I will try my hand at live tweeting insights from "A #Home of One's Own", a two-day #researchworkshop on socially & economically #marginalised women's experiences of and negotiations with #genderinequalities in #informalurbanhousing in India.
This workshop has been organised by #JadavpurUniversity (School of Women's Studies), #RabindraBharathiUniversity (Centre for Women's Studies) and #Parichiti, a women's organisation. All three are research partners on a #GCRF project funded by @GoldsmithsUoL.
Since Oct 2018, I have collaborated with Dr. Henrike Donner, who is leading it, to develop #researchcollaborations with #educational and #development organisations in India to implement a pilot study on #genderurbanhousing. This workshop marks the end of the first phase.

Pilot in BC Canada: @velometro 3-wheeled enclosed #ebikes operating as shared vehicles. Think Car2Go+bike. Geofenced to keep off pedestrian walkways. #TRBAM
If @velometro classified as bikes they can be in bike lanes but you couldn't park these at a bike rack. Lots of policy issues to be worked through. #TRBAM #bikeshare (?)
Traffic operations questions created by low-power vehicles that aren't quite bikes. If they operate (maybe in general motor vehicle lanes) + you want smaller vehicles used for urban delivery + working for bike mode shift, what happens? #TRBAM #LEVs
