Countdown: After exactly 20 amazing years with @Siemens and @SiemensMobility I today started my last five days with this incredible company.

Siemens and its employees are clearly a #benchmark when it comes to #responsibility, #excellence and #innovation.

Stay tuned....

I know it's gotten fashionable to #blame others for our #emotions because self #responsibility is difficult and people have been taught to avoid what is difficult.

But self #responsibility is EXACTLY the perfect level of #difficult because it's an equal opportunity difficulty; none of us are without flaws or errors or #mistakes and we've ALL been wronged (on some level) by something.

Self responsibility is SO important, that the 12 Steps (of #AlcoholicsAnonymous, #NarcoticsAnonymous, #AlAnon, #Codependent recovery, etc.) is BASED on it.

To be sober, for example, I had/have to take responsibility for the parts of my life that I was/am responsible for.

First, there was Phone diplomacy ☎️

Then came Twitter diplomacy, aka “Twiplomacy” 🐦

We may now enter Videocall diplomacy era, aka “Viplomacy” 💻

(yes, I made that up)

A 🧵 featuring @ThierryBreton, the #BigTech and #governance 👇
Who would’ve guessed #Google and #Apple could ever work on a *common* API?

A “good” consequence of the crisis (so to speak)🤷🏻‍♂️

And a move welcomed by @ThierryBreton, who highlighted the importance of privacy in a 🖥 call with Google’s CEO @sundarpichai

Just finished listening to @bdaiwi_historia's interesting conversation with @WQuisay of the #politicaltheology of contemporary Sunni #neotraditionalism
@bdaiwi_historia pressed @WQuisay to locate the source of the "traditionalism" in today's "neotraditionalists". IMO, it is neither #kalam nor #fiqh both of which produce deep "activism", so deep in fact, they have engendered conflict, as a historical matter in #MuslimHistory
I would locate their discourse in the #tazkiyatalnafs (self-purification) tradition of sharia-minded #Sufism. This kind of discourse is highly-compatible with a certain kind of #secularism that promotes the #privatization and #depoliticization of religion.

1/30 In two forthcoming pieces, I examine #Japan's response to the #COVID19 #coronavirus #pandemic. I'll summarize the main non-theoretical points here (long thread alert!).
2/30 #Japan’s figures have always looked good compared to many other countries, which initially led to suspicion that the ‘real’ numbers of #COVID19 #coronavirus infections & death were being played down.
3/30 #Tokyo Metropolitan Government at least has now released full #COVID19 figures, including general death rates, seeming to put this argument to rest (but these figures are also now being challenged). japantimes.co.jp/news/2020/05/0…

In 2017 I was honoured to deliver a @TEDTalks in which I spoke about how we could face the future without fear, together. Faced with the sudden challenge of #Coronovirus, this talk seems all the more pertinent. You can watch or read it in full at bit.ly/2w8BXsQ. Image
In the @TEDTalks, I argued that the simplest way to safeguard the future 'You' was by strengthening the future 'Us' in three dimensions: the 'Us' of #relationship, the 'Us' of #identity and the 'Us' of #responsibility. Never has this seemed more true than in today's world.
I also offered a suggestion of how this could be done. Do a search and replace operation on the text of your mind and wherever you encounter the word "self," substitute the word "other."

So @aaron_s_fox jumped the gate on me :) w/ a thread on the #ACL #injury & #AFLW #sport #womanprobs conversation & he did a great job but I'd like my perspective to come in that special 'tone' I may be known for in presentations... My first twitter thread! Expect sarcasm and gifs
1st, I posted my perspective on #injury #women #athlete #development #biomechanics in another tweet, if you missed it, short editorial: bit.ly/3a5Al1x & presentation bit.ly/32hbogF Read those after this thread of fun, I hope the GIFs help you "hear" my tone :)

Written by my mother:

From my heart with sadness....

My terrifying experience at all candidates forum in Vancouver-Granville, last night October 5, 2019!

It was not Antifa, although in my view the tactics were the same, it was two NDP members who attacked me...
inside and outside of the facility.

To introduce myself: I am a proud Canadian, a senior, a Polish immigrant, a hard working women, a mother, a grandmother who immigrated to Canada 38 years ago, running away from socialist - communist Poland just few months before Martial Law...
was declared there, in December 1981.

My family barely survived German Nazi, my cousins were murdered in concentration camps, my mother (who is now 95 yrs old) was beaten almost to dead by German Nazis, by the grace of God she survived it my father survived the Nazi war...

Here is a thread from my Covenant & Conversation essay on #Balak called "Not Reckoned Among the Nations". You can read it in full here: bit.ly/2JPC7bv and download the accompanying Family Edition here: bit.ly/32ykyFv. #ShabbatShalom Image
There are nations with many religions: #multicultural #Britain is one among many. There are religions governing many nations: #Christianity and #Islam are obvious examples. Only in the case of #Judaism is there a one-to-one correlation between #religion and #nationhood.
Without #Judaism there would be nothing (except #antisemitism) to connect #Jews across the world. And without the #Jewish nation Judaism would cease to be what it has always been, the #faith of a people bound by a bond of collective #responsibility to one another and to #God.

Here is a thread from my Covenant & Conversation essay on #Behaalotcha called "Camp and Congregation". You can read it in full here: bit.ly/2IuewNW and download the accompanying Family Edition here: bit.ly/2WV9jYl. #ShabbatShalom Image
#Judaism in the past two centuries has fissured and fractured into different edot [communities]: #Orthodox and #Reform, #religious and #secular, and the many subdivisions that continue to atomise #Jewish #life into non-communicating sects and subcultures.
Yet in times of #crisis, we are still capable of heeding the call of collective #responsibility, knowing as we do that Jewish fate tends to be indivisible. No Jew, to paraphrase John Donne, is an island, entire of him- or herself.

#Responsibility of #programmers for their #algorithms
😇Shooting stars: from expert advisor to #spoofing criminal
👉Spoofing #algo coder partially acquitted
🤦‍♂️CFTC and FBI fail with indictment of the programmer who developed the algo at the heart of the infamous 2010 #FlashCrash
😇Jitesh Thakkar, the founder and president of Edge Financial Technologies, one of the leading firms for #software development for #algorithmic and #highfrequencytrading #hft, was acquitted on April 9th, 2019 of the count of #conspiracy to commit spoofing.
⚠️Thakkar’s case is the first in the US where a programmer is prosecuted for his involvement in the development of a manipulative algorithm and shows regulators’ willingness to prosecute programmers in addition to the users of such algorithms.

Ah, the #EuropeanParliamentElection knocks at the door! Let’s see who is #campaigning for what…In #Italy, a #rightwingcoalition calls for a #guaranteedincome, #largerpensions, and resistance to the heavy-handed #austerityprograms enforced by the #EuropeanUnion.
In #France, some #rightwinggroups champion #fight against #climatechange, decry #exploitation of #foreignworkers, growing #economicinequality. What about the #centerright and #centerleft parties? #Polls show they will lose their #majority, and the Euroskeptics bag 30+% of seats.
However, #Euroskeptic, like #populist, is a term that obscures more than it reveals. #Spain’s leftist #Podemos isn’t likely to break bread with #Italy’s rightist #NorthernLeague-#M5S, but both are considered #Euroskeptic. Some are really #wolves but wear #sheepskins.

Jozef & Wiktoria Ulma risked their lives to help Jews during the #Holocaust. On March 1944 the German police discovered the Jews in hiding.

The Jewish family was shot, as was the entire Ulma family - parents & 6 children. Wiktoria was 7 months pregnant. 1/14
March 24 - the anniversary of the murder of the Ulma family - is today in Poland the National Day of Remembrance of Poles who saved Jews during German occupiation. See this thread to learn 11 stories of #Righteous linked with #Auschwitz. 2/14

1/11 - FWIW, & unsurprising given her expertise, @carolmliao nails it. I share many of her concerns. Despite looking into it since this conversation restarted, I can't uncover any good reason for "benefit corporations" under BC law. THREAD INCOMING #socent #CSR #ESG #companies
2/#Corporations in BC are already "benefit corporations", as best I can tell, less just the branding and/or (paid) certification. I've been a lawyer for 15 years, roughly the life since the BCE/People's cases, & have always advised directors to look after broader stakeholders.
3/I worry benefit corp or "B. Co" (I'm sure JUST COINCIDENCE it's so similar to @BCorporation brand) will imply that other corporations don't have same duties. Also, in trying to legislate "public benefit" may limit breadth of court (@SCC_eng) interpretation & oppression remedy.

#OSHO

The moment you #renounce #responsibilities you also renounce #freedom. These are the complexities of life: freedom and responsibilities remain and go away together.

More you love freedom, more you will be ready to #accept responsibilities.
But outside the world, outside the #society, there is no possibility of any #responsibility. And it has to be remembered that all that we learn, we learn through being #responsible.
#Escaping to the #forest and the #mountains, you are simply escaping from a learning situation.

In a cave in the Himalayas you won’t have any responsibility, but remember, without #responsibility you cannot #grow; your #consciousness will remain #stuck.

what day is it today? it's the day that in the netherlands a 'columnist' proposes to forcibly sterilize asylum seekers as they arrive. that's a crime against humanity. the 'columnist': @umarebru. the publishing rag: @metro.
.@umarebru is by far not the only columnist in the netherlands who writes fully irresponsible, fascist, fact free shit. no paper or magazine fires them, no bounderies are set in any way. editors in chief act as if they have no tools to controle these inhumane, dangerous people.
while it is really easy: if a columnist exceeds all boundaries of human decency, keeps writing fact free columns or persists in racism and seksism or even proposes f* crimes against humanity, as editor in chief you send him/her an email: 'you're fired'. take! #responsibility!

I Have been thinking as to #WhatIsMaturity ...
I used to think that maturity was about age & physical development. I was so wrong & have since found out that age is only but a number.
Below are 20 definitions of #Maturity I read recently ..
#Maturity is when:
1 We accept other people the way they are and their level of maturity
2 We understand that our ideas are not always the best
3 We learn to let go even if it pains.
4 We are able to drop expectations from a relationship and give for the sake of giving
5 We understand that whatever positive things we do, we do for our own peace
6 We stop proving to the world how RIGHT OR SUPERIOR we are.
7 We stop comparing ourself with others because life is not a competition

#Intelligence is a response to a new situation, not out of your past memories but from your present awareness, this very moment.

Intelligence is a spontaneous #responsibility. It has been misunderstood. It has become almost equivalent to #duty. The #reality is different.
There has been a perennial conflict between #intelligence and #intellect.

The man of intellect thinks that he is #intelligent because he knows so much. He has accumulated a great heritage of #knowledge, he is burdened with all kinds of #information.
The man of #intelligence is innocent; he functions moment to moment, his functioning has a freshness and a beauty. But to find intelligence one has to go beyond the mind. #Meditation is the way.

The Adecco Arrest and Cover Up

Most organisations contain their problems, but some just look like amateurs

#Adecco #Metpolice #Lovewhatyoudo #CEO1Month #Leadership #Training
#Adecco did everything to try to avoid confirming my mother's attendance even going to the lengths of calling #MetPolice to arrest her
If someone's house gets burgled, the #metpolice haven't got the resources to turn up. However, if you request a confirmation letter at #Adecco which you require for #DWP, then @metpoliceuk are quick on the scene
