1/x So you're interested in PFP #NFT projects? Have you ever wondered how a strong community and the existence of a project roadmap may impact sales prices? Well, you can find out here! It's #research 🧵 time! $VET #VeChain #Vpunks #finance #economics
2/x TLDR - Using sales data from 7,272 secondary market sales of @vpunksofficial we find (when controlling for rarity scores) that for every 1 new official Telegram member the sales price increases by ~0.2% and the publication of the roadmap increased prices by ~33%!
3/x First, let us define our two main research questions:
1) does the size of a project's community impact the sales price?
2) does the existence of a project-specific roadmap impact the sales prices?

Welcome back, George.

Now, about that "race-to-the-bottom" slashing of #data #protections...
...which, despite fine words about "maintaining high standards", is plainly the intent of @DCMS's proposed #DataProtection 'reforms':

assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/upl…

...which include the intent to (re)define "#ScientificResearch" 🤔🤔🤔
Of course, we understand #TIGRR's "enthusiasm for #digital", its eye on the value of "highly #profitable consumer data", and frustration with the pesky #protections and #safeguards of #UKGDPR...

Here's a long thread with evidence about why the @RSPOtweets has failed to make any difference with key sustainability promises incl. stopping #deforestation #indigenous #landgrabbing #ecocide #slavery #humanrights abuses for supermarket brands. 1/7 palmoildetectives.com/2021/08/23/why…
Source: @EIA_News @RSPOtweets members using so-called "sustainable" #palmoil continue with #deforestation #ecocide #illegal #landgrabbing from #Indigenous peoples.
Thus the certification is a #greenwashing con. @EIA_News #Boycottpalmoil #Boycott4Wildlife eia-international.org/news/palm-oil-…
The certification of #palmoil is considered to be a con by @GreenpeaceUK as it doesn't stop #ecocide #deforestation. Certified "sustainable" #palmoil doesn't exist #Boycottpalmoil #Boycott4Wildlife

Are there #data studies and #research on most effective ways to share info about the vaccine? I've been having lots of convos with vaccine hesitant ppl and a common thing is no data culture, so they don't understand the #chart + #statistics . So, what did I do ? 1/
I asked vaccine hesitant ppl questions instead of throwing info at them. Showing up saying "Look at this data!" isn't helpful, or working. We all have different approaches, values, and things that resonate. Do you want to be told you're right, or do you want to be effective? 2/
I started asking vax hesitant ppl questions after our talks, too. What did I say that landed? How did you feel about this fact? When did I say things that frustrated you? What info had you heard before, and what was new? How do most people approach you? How are you irl? 3/

"#Data: a new direction" - a public consultation by @DCMS on "reforms to the UK’s #DataProtection regime":

A quick sample of initial reactions...

We're clearly going to be hearing a lot about #LegitimateInterests, as well as #commercial and #public ones. The real question being, how do this Government's interests actually align with YOURS?

140+ pages on a Friday is a lot to digest, but @lilianedwards' "penumbra of often futile determinedly populist ideas largely not evidence-based" seems entirely consistent with @DCMS's Drunkard's Walk through #data and #ID this past year...

Since many people look to #IOTA because of the gains, I would like to use this thread to show you some information about what #IOTA is, what they do and with whom they work.
The information is divided into DLT Protocol, Standardization, Government & Regulation, Industry & Technology, Mobility, World Trade & Supply Chains, Climate Protection & Agriculture, Smart City and Research.
Protocol:
IOTA is a permissionless DLT and the pioneers of the DAG systems.
They offer a free protocol that can run data and value transactions over the smallest of devices and runs very efficiently.
Designed for the real economy and for the interaction between man and machine.

1/ I loved writing this new @ASMicrobiology article. I talked to Dr. Derick Kimathi (@Toinoti, medical researcher in Kenya), about using fractional doses of yellow fever #vaccine. I hope you find this as interesting as I did #IDtwitter #epitwitter
asm.org/Articles/2021/…
2 / This is a follow up article to the one I wrote back in May that briefly detailed the history of #YellowFever in the United States, and how the development of #diagnostics for the disease as well as modern research stemmed from that #history.
asm.org/Articles/2021/…
3/ The #YellowFever #outbreak that started in Angola in 2015 ravaged major cities like Luanda & Kinshasa, and resulted in 11 imported cases in China - a country that harbors the mosquito that spreads the yellow fever virus and has a population immunologically naïve to YF.

This month marks a decade since I completed medical #internship. I thought then that I had achieved my goal, that I would find joy in my work. Little did I know where life would lead me. My #reminisces & #reflections - too long for a tweet & too short for a blog - hence, a 🧵
As the first & only #medical student in the extended family, I was in #unfamiliar waters. Moving to uncle's house in another city was a not-too-comfortable but not-wholly-unpleasant change. I'm privileged to be part of a family who did all they could to keep me happy
The pedagogy was #authoritative & #oppressive; seemed to be designed to #humiliate, not teach. I couldn't learn by rote, didn't know of any better ways (pre- ubiquitous smartphone era) Expected to address #seniors using honorifics, I felt they were as unapproachable as teachers

I'm struggling with the idea that #pwME *once again* have to re-live traumatising experiences to provide evidence for #NICE (of #harm of GET) when NICE must already have plenty of evidence. In the below thread I offer a few extracts from 2019 Forward ME / Oxford Brookes survey:
“GET completely exacerbated my symptoms and left me nearly bedbound for several months”
“My aim was to try & go back to university on a part time basis (which was encouraged by my physiotherapist) but I started to relapse before I started my course again & I only managed 6 weeks before becoming very ill - as a result I spent the next 6 years bedbound or housebound”

White American men: a famously pro-trans faction Do not forget why white American men LOVE trans ideology. 1.
"Black" T/RFs pretending to have an anti-racist, anti-colonial lens on this site are so nonsensical 😂
I also saw one essentially argue that accepting trans people is rape culture. Just embarrassing, wrong, and pretty twisted considering it's trans folks disproportionately victimized by sexual violence...

China unveils 600 kph/370 mph High Speed Superfast #maglevtrain prototype makes public #debut, "Fastest Ground #Vehicle Globally": Report
Using electro-magnetic force, #maglev #TRAIN "levitates" above track & no contact between body and rail.
#Thread #tech #technology #Transport
China has been using maglev technology for almost 2 decades on very limited scale. Maglev train could go from Shanghai to #Beijing in 2.5 hours, versus 5.5 hours by high-speed rail. Self-developed by China and manufactured in coastal city of #Qingdao. @CRRC_global new model.
Cutting-edge #scientific and technological achievement in field of #railway transit in world. Train uses electromagnets to suspend itself above rails, and because there's no friction from contact with rail lines, train can run quietly and smoothly. Unveiled in glittery ceremony.

There seemed to be some confusion about (the use of) words in @CommonsHealth Committee yesterday morning, so here's a [Thread] to try to clarify.

First "#commercial". It is of course the case that many parts of the #NHS use commercial providers, e.g. of software, whether that...
...is @Microsoft365 for word processing, spreadsheets & e-mail; or IT systems to handle patients' records in hospitals (e.g. @CernerUK) & General Practice (e.g. @TPP_SystmOne, @EMISHealth, @CegedimHS); or software to drive complicated equipment like #MRIscanners, etc.

This is...
..entirely normal use of #commercial software & software services, for which the #NHS body is the #DataController. Apart from when that software goes wrong, I don't believe many would have concerns about this.

Then there are #commercial providers of #NHS services, about which...

I strongly urge all #scientists to return to their laboratories and conduct thorough #research on the topics within their purview.

In my opinion, Lancet did very poorly to publish the document accessible from the link: thelancet.com/journals/lance…

This is undue political pressure on the #UK government to try to prevent a return to normal life.
