As a member of @ScienceAU, Victoria's Science Society supports the #research sector's ten pledges, seeking commitments from candidates for the Australian Federal #Election2022. Let's run through them all, shall we? #auspol #ausvotes #AusVotes2022
Let's punch *at* our weight in #research funding, at least. It's a matter of investing in our brainpower as a resource for other sectors to draw on, & sustain tertiary #education as one of major exports. #auspol #ausvotes #AusVotes2022
We argue #research #translation is about "bench to #community" - #industry is a big part of that. Public funding established a world class research sector, but the private sector is where we need to build capacity to benefit from that resource. #auspol #ausvotes #AusVotes2022

Next time an interviewer asks you to "Explain this gap on your resume," REGARDLESS of why, answer,
"I decline to answer that question in #solidarity with those whose reasons are none of your business, or reveal information that it's illegal to not-hire them for."
#HotTake It's MOST important that those with more #privilege who would claim to not be racist/classist/ableist/misogynist/otherwise hostile to all marginalized groups refuse.
When YOU give an actual answer, YOU steal 💰 from all of them.
THEY don't get work, or get paid less. 2/
Especially someone who's been to prison, there's no good way to spin that story, especially for white-collar jobs with good pay.
People make mistakes, or get punished unjustly - YOU condemn them to poverty for life. 3/

🧵Hi, I’m Sergio and I have ADHD. I didn’t know about my #ADHD growing up because going to the doctor was not a norm at home or encouraged tbh. My symptoms started spiraling during my masters and that’s when I reached out and got some help. My psychologist was shocked & asked (1)
(2) why I never went to the doctor… #privilege 🙈. Once I got diagnosed & started taking medicine, yes I take medicine & I’m not ashamed, nor do I care to be shamed by folx, things started clicking for me. Habits & ways of doing things finally made sense & I didn’t feel crazy.
(3) Since 2016, I’ve been learning to understand what it means to have #adhd & #generalanxiety, all while navigating #cacademia as a first gen doc student. The struggle is real & some days are better than others tbh. I see this as a process of reclaiming love & grace for myself

It has nothing to do with some fake sense of American privilege. LMAO Some of us have scraped by, have been utterly tossed to the side while watching others have it even worse down to homelessness and hate it. Some fucking privilege. The whole matrix is crashing. #Privilege
Why don't some other countries try being the most brainwashed nation on Earth and being created by the
fucking illuminati to destroy countless others and wreak havoc while waving a flag like a bunch of illiterate psychopaths.

What do we have let's see:
Mc Donald's I'm lovin' IT (MASON)
Coke (Koch Nazi)

Today, our family followed through on the decision to move dad to a long-term facility in Mississauga. He's been on a dementia journey for about 8 years alongside a cancer one that has him also receiving palliative care. /2
The script flipped for me was a few years back when his conscientious nature had him scaling an aluminum ladder in a rainstorm to check that the eaves were clear ensuring we wouldn't have any flooding. Both his physical and mental capacity at the time put him at risk. /3

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.

Beyond thrilled to have been awarded a *renewal* for my @NIH_LRP award!!!!!! Story time (on #privilege and #perseverance)

#medtwitter #academictwitter #blackinSTEM 1/
As a first-generation #Kenyan American, raised in #Kenya and very much an #African child (if you know you know), a #doctor is very much what I was going to be from the time I was born. 😋 (thankfully, also a marrying of my love of science and taking care of people!) 2/
So it was to my parents’ incredible delight when I got accepted to #medicalschool, never having... basically... known someone who had done so, in the US anyway. #firstgen #firstgeneration (yes, this story has a comical peak, wait for it...) 3/

The #G7 this weekend renounced its role as #globalhealth leader, @kentbuse and I argue in @bmj_latest:…

A thread on what next for global health & #healthsecurity.
Speaking at #G20 Rome #GlobalHealthSummit in May, German Chancellor #Merkel had raised the question, “if not us, who?” to end the global #Covid19 #pandemic.

At #G7UK this past weekend, #G7 responded with "Not us," committing to donate 870mn #vaccine doses when the need is 11bn.
Instead of engaging with recommendations of @TheIndPanel to strengthen #pandemic preparedness & the #globalhealth system (, strongly backed by @antonioguterres (), #G7 noted it would "explore" different proposals.

Another Sunday. Another thread. #caste #privilege #merit #prejudice

My primary school was a govt. aided vernacular medium school run by an ed. institute (one of the better ones in my home city). My first recall of #caste is from when I was in 2nd/3rd.

One of our teachers that year was NOT upper-caste (unlike most teachers in the school), and the predominantly upper-caste parents (including mine) weren't happy with the "quota" teacher. The general mood was "our education system is going to collapse due to quota"

The thing is, this was decided based on his "surname", and of course based on prejudice of all the upper-caste teacher's, who had an obvious grudge against "quota system" that the govt. grant mandated. I don't even remember if he was a good or bad teacher.

#Caste a thread.

Long back, when I had just passed my 10th exam with decent marks, a distant relative who was an office bearer for "karhade brahmin sanghatana", or some such organization representing my born caste, visited our house to hand me a "prize"

Incidentally, we were invited to attend a program to felicitate "bright" students from the community but hadn't turned up, so he had come home to deliver my cash prize. "I don't accept prizes that are caste-based", I said. He tried to convince me, but I was adamant.

Give that money away to some deserving candidate from the (so-called) lower castes, I told him. Given my background, this isn't even an achievement, I told him.

Announcement from @fordnation sank my heart today. As an ER doctor, person of color and #Scarborough native, I feel defeated 😢. The measures are not going to get wave 3 under control. #BIPOC #ERdoc @SHNcares @torontolife @JustinTrudeau @SCMirror 1/
When I landed as an #immigrant in #Canada, my life started in #Scarborough. My parents (#heros) struggled to find jobs that matched their education. That didn't stop them from working hard / hustling even if it meant 2 jobs at times to keep bills paid and food on the table. 2/
My family lived in an apt building that had mostly racialized/middle-low income families (#affordability). Not much social distancing when large crowds wait for elevators (#EssentialWorkers) or use the shared laundry facilities. This pandemic brings back those vivid memories 3/

So ready for this amazing #HDLS14 panel on "Race, racism and racialization in sign language research" organized by @linasigns and @jaceyhill starring @_CooLDP @munimuninianna and Dominic Harrison (are you on Twitter Dominic?)
.@linasigns starts of with a powerful reminder and acknowledgment about the constant presence of violence and oppression against BIPOC people in this country and how BIPOC scholars are forced to exist in spaces which thrive on white supremacy and settler colonialism #HDLS14
UNM's @_CooLDP situates us within Intersectionality Frameworks such as #BlackFeministDisbility (Bailey& Mobley 2018) #BlackDeafFeminist (Chapple 2019) & outlines different branches of #CriticalRaceTheory showing each highlights different facets of intersectionality #HDLS14

Let's talk about the elephant in the room (pun intended).

Can we agree we're all anxious about this election? Great! Let's start there. But what exactly are we anxious about?

@Kbahri5 @JuliaFliss @drgamermom @ChristineBemis2 @gtoppo @DrLydiaYoung @DrKGRM @msjingold
Are we anxious about the final count? Yes

Are we anxious that this election will impact the lives of our children and their children after them? Yes

Excellent, let's keep going...

@HeatherJoy001 @ASMILEwithAnna @henneld_edu @awfrench1 @MikeHynes5 @MonicaHousen @STEAMcultivator
Are we at all anxious that 70 million people have just voiced their approval of the way our country has been run over the past 4 years? Still yes?

Great, stay with me...

@EpiEllie’s #COVID19 #ContactBudget, in thread form, undertaken with her blessing😅

NB: lettered items = topic, numbered = bullets in the original #giftorial; expansions on these are my words alone.

First, the #giftorial (large font version)

We've heard about #RiskReduction from @JuliaLMarcus along w/ #PreventionStrategies for SARS-CoV-2 from many public health experts.

Dr. Murray's #giftorial above brings this together in a way that makes it easy to individually apply. I'll use my situation to demonstrate.

A. What level of risk can I afford?
1. Age: adult, 28 - 40
2. Health status: at least 2 comorbidities, one of which is asthma (often exacerbated during allergy season); high stress job.
3. Caregiving responsibilities: minimal
4. Personal risk preference: very averse to all
