Guten Morgen ihr Lieben, ich hoffe ihr habt besser geschlafen.

Mein vorletzter Tag als @einwortmehr hat begonnen. Im DM Fach sind noch ein paar eurer Lebensgeschichten, die noch erzählt werden wollen.

Auch nach dieser Woche möchte ich euch eine Stimme geben. ↘️
Eure Geschichten erzählen, euch Worte geben.
Jeder von euch ist wichtig. Jeder muss gehört werden.
#IchBinArmutsbetroffen darf nicht verstummen. Die ersten Medien haben das Thema aufgegriffen.
Es müssen mehr werden. Wir müssen mit den Vorurteilen aufräumen.↘️
Denn wenn der Großteil der Bevölkerung versteht, was #IchBinArmutsbetroffen wirklich bedeutet und auch sie jederzeit treffen kann, dass wir genauso sind wie sie, mit Träumen, Wünschen und Zielen, unsere Kinder sind wie ihre Kinder, erst dann beginnt ein Umdenken.↘️

Intro.

Warning:

This is very technical information for people interested in DLT and banking payment upgrades.

Not for the faint of heart.
Talks about Bank of England synchronized settlement of RTGS

I've seen that before and the common denominator was @Interledger #ILP #fintech #payments #settlement

3rd photo is the Bank of England document I read years ago on the ILP PoC success.

Eine Personenkontrolle darf nicht aufgrund der Hautfarbe erfolgen, urteilt das Verwaltungsgericht Dresden.
#RacialProfiling verstößt gegen die Grundrechte und ist somit illegal.

Ein junger Mann wurde aufgrund seiner Hautfarbe am Bahnhof kontrolliert.

zdf.de/nachrichten/po…
Da ausschließlich #PoC von der Polizei kontrolliert wurden (was ein Beamter bei der Gerichtsverhandlung einräumte), verweigerte der junge Mann die Herausgabe seiner Ausweisdokumente - zurecht, wie das Gericht ungeteilte - allerdings half dies dem Mann in dieser Situation nichts.
Nun drehte die Polizei richtig auf. Der junge Mann wurde nach seiner Weigerung mit auf die Wache genommen, über Stunden festgehalten, eine Untersuchung sämtlicher Körperöffnungen durchgeführt und schlussendlich wurde er noch an den Haaren hochgezogen. - Auch all das stufte das

Over the last three years, the Pakistani urban woman from Karachi, Ms Ramla Akhtar, aka Rmala Aalam, oriented her life towards a massive
cyberstalking on social media. She takes great care to hide her identity and real face while using stolen profiles pictures and numerous anonymous or impersonating accounts with frequently changing handles, names and bios. It allows her to produce repeated reports to Pakistani
and foreign authorities as if her numerous calumnious denunciations were coming from several abused people and/or entities. In this presentation we will try to give some keys about such an inextricable purposely created confusion.

#Leerdenker schlagen wild um sich, wenn sie Masken aufsetzen sollen.
#Nazis fühlen sich ermutigt an der Grenze zu Selbstjustiz zu greifen.

Das ist das Resultat einer verfehlten Sicherheitspolitik von #CDU und #CSU.
Ständig wird zum einen Versucht die Stimmung
im Land aufzuheizen.

Als im Wahlkampf die Felle weg schwammen, wurde noch mal vor Migration und kriminellen Migranten "gewarnt". Auch zuvor sind #Union'spolitiker immer wieder damit aufgefallen Migration politisch zu missbrauchen. Allem voran #Seehofer.

Gleichzeitig ließ man
#Nazis auf Demonstrationen frei randalieren. #PoC durften durch Innenstädte gehetzt werden, Rassismus in der Polizei wurde klein geredet.

Nun ist es halt so weit, dass Nazis mit Waffen an die Grenze zu Polen reisen.

Auch dass #Leerdenker jetzt zuschlagen darf nicht verwunden.

Me, waiting in an overcrowded pharmacy for my #COVID19 booster

Woman of Color (#WOC) in front of me: It is NOT safe to have this many people in one place!

Me: I hear you. This is not COVID-19 safe at all. I'm here for my booster.

WOC: Wait, I have some questions about that.
Me: I work in medicine. Maybe I can help.

Her: See, what I don't understand is: why are there two shots?

Me: Yeah, fair. This kind of virus confuses your body, so the first time your body sees it, it is CONFUSED.

Her: Yeah, yeah.
Me: And the second time your body sees it, it's like "wait a minute, I KNOW this" & it's ready to FIGHT.

Her: Now that makes sense.

Me: Mm-hm.

Her: You know, I'm just here to pick up my prescription. I have to work tomorrow, you know, third shift.

Me: Yeah, you work hard.

1/1 Our #openaccess article (with @MagnusLLundgren and @_vincenzobove) is now online at Journal of Conflict Resolution!

“Politics or Performance? Leadership Accountability in UN Peacekeeping”

tinyurl.com/3nme2xte
2/2 Does the #UN Secretariat hold leaders of #peacekeeping operations (SRSGs) and Force Commanders (FCs) accountable for mission performance?

Mission performance ≠ only actions of leaders, but sanctioning SRSGs and FCs allows Secretariat to signal a commitment to accountability
3/3 Sanctions = contract non-renewal, early termination, even public dismissal (only SRSG Gaye and FC Ondieki so far)

The Secretariat faces a politics-performance trade-off (Comparative Politics concept ➡️ #IR): difficult to fire SRSGs and FCs from powerful or pivotal countries

Said in response to a whole population of hs students who collectively commited horrid acts of anti-Black American racism.
See below.
It's just like a white supremacists to say "Sorry, didn't know better, please teach me".
Parents + fellow students are demanded suspension. 👏🏾

White and Latino students at #Salinas high school made a IG page featuring images of them being violently aggressive towards a Black doll they named #Shaniqua

Apparently they didn't know this was wrong so they just need a racial sensitivity workshop. ImageImage
These incidents clearly didn't stem from a singular, sudden idea. It takes a deep rooted hatred of Black Americans to cause something like this to spread within an entire high school. #salinas

A rant...,

The words that I express here are my own and have no affiliation to @ADOSorg @BreakingBrown or @tonetalks. If you would like to talk about their agenda, they are always available to clear up misconceptions from what I have noticed.

But I'm finna say this... 1/11
Africa celebrated the first AA president in America, not because his family had descended from American Chattel Slavery and made it to the point where he could matriculate at a #PoisonIvy institution and become the leader of the free world, NO! They celebrated because... 2/11
He is the first generation of his African family to be born in America. It was an accomplishment that should have been celebrated. That, IMO, should have been the point where we began #Diaspora repair. People where congratulating me like my brother won, lol 3/11

Dear Fellow White People,

I am a gay woman of Jewish ethnicity living in #Texas and have faced discrimination in my life. However, my experiences are through the lens of a white woman, someone who doesn’t face the daily #SystemicRacism embedded in our society and institutions.
Let’s be clear. The USA was built on the backs of slaves, human beings who were considered property for no other reason than the color of their skin, and the institutions within this country were both developed and implemented by, and for, white people.
By virtue of this fact, white people have the inherent privilege of living in a world that was created for their benefit.

An example of steering: an agent telling a client that it is a wonderful home and place while telling another client that it is a dangerous place. Knowing or unconscious biases? However, it is the Law so it doesn’t matter re motivation.

A week before my entire household contracted #COVID-19, I asked in a departmental leadership mtg why we weren’t talking about #burnout at all - the agenda was dominated by stressful topics & I kept muting to silence my kids screaming in the background... insidehighered.com/news/2020/09/1…
I was thinking about the fact that my 1st grader has been out of physical school for almost a year, my twin babies have barely been outside our yard, “me time” and date nights are nonexistent, and even as 24/7 work has invaded our home, I feel less and less able to be #productive
At this mtg—filled with discussion of budget cuts, grant funding drying up, pandemic-imposed challenges w/ data collection, the political assault on science, lack of diversity & inclusiveness on our campus—the weight of it all just sank me. But I was nervous to use the B word.

Ich habe in den #USA vorrangig Kontakt mit konservativ und tief-religiös geprägten Menschen, die traditionell Republikaner wählen und z.T. auch offiziell auf republikanischem Ticket als Wähler registriert sind. Sie sind der Prototyp des von uns oft verklärten „Anerican Dream“ 1/x

There is a pervasive bias against believing the symptoms and complaints of pain made by women & #POC. We were warned against it in nursing school, it was named as a reason why women's heart attacks are ignored. It's a real thing, but it's not the whole reason #POC are dying more.
"Black Americans are nearly five times more likely to be hospitalized with COVID-19 than white Americans" #POC are more likely to require hospitalization but that isn't the result of any bias in healthcare. That's another problem that needs to be analyzed. thehill.com/homenews/news/…
So #POC are infected with #Covid need supportive hospital care more often, they are three times more likely to become infected, #POC, they have less access to #healthcare & are more likely to be uninsured or underinsured. cidrap.umn.edu/news-perspecti…
