Canada's #5G rollout

"A larger number of connected devices will result in huge increases in data that need to be stored in energy-intensive #data centres, which are expected to emit more #carbon than the international #aviation industry."

"It also means an exponential increase in the # of wireless networks, which are energy-guzzlers (est. to be 10x less efficient than wired networks). In 2015 alone, the energy used to power wireless networks generated approx. 30 megatonnes of carbon, the same as 4.9 million cars."
"There are no published long-term studies... As one US Senator put it, w/ #5G, “we’re kind of flying blind here, as far as #health & #safety is concerned.” For this reason, 273 #scientists & #doctors in the EU have signed a declaration calling for all 5G [] to be stopped."

Today's thread - by @pingali - is about making #MachineLearning projects successful. Links back to the first session of making #DataScience work by @scribbledata hasgeek.com/fifthelephant/… (1/8) Learn more by joining The Fifth Elephant on hasgeek.com/fifthelephant
@pingali @scribbledata Framing: Formulating a good problem is the most important step. What is 'good' depends on the context. Mature companies require optimal solutions. Sometimes, framing can be good enough but something that can be pulled back. Take #risks, with guard rails in place. (2/8) Join The Fifth Elephant to participate: hasgeek.com/fifthelephant
@pingali @scribbledata Buy-in: #DataScience has ambiguity. Communicating is
critical - define goals of communication; who you are communicating with is important. Link data science outcomes to business outcomes. Understand incentives and motives of other stakeholders. Be empathetic. (3/8) Subscribe to The Fifth Elephant on hasgeek.com/fifthelephant to join.

Cellphone tower set on fire in Saint-Henri

yo .⁦@CBCMontreal⁩ .⁦@CBCAlerts

your story 👇 talks of “False narratives around #5G technology...” so by all means let’s deal with #5Gfacts & not mindlessly conflate with #C19

#5Gfact

***no independent scientific studies of #5G safety have ever been conducted — #fact wireless industry reps themselves have admitted.***

this MUST be brought to public attention!!!

(it certainly has been kept quiet so far.... 🤔 yo #cdnmedia! )

#thread!

#5Gfact

any claims of #5G safety by #BigTelecom are cynical PR distraction ploy from core threats to human health (which #BigWireless, #lobbyists & servile ‘regulator’ .@GovCanHealth — both #PHAC & #HealthCanada — refuse to acknowledge)

#ITM Vs #OTM #Options Which to #BUY?

When selecting the right #option to #buy, a #trader has several choices to make. One is whether to purchase an in-the-money (ITM) or out-of-the-money (OTM) option.
While the goal for "#vanilla" #buyers is to have the option be in the money at expiration, the selected option depends on the amount the trader wants to spend and their risk tolerance, as well as their specific expectations for the underlying stock.
UNDERSTANDING #ITM Vs #OTM

Before delving into the pros and cons of each, let's look at what it means to be itm or otm.
A #call is ITM when the underlying stock is trading above the strike price.
Conversely it is OTM when the underlying stock is trading below the strike price

Why one should invest in what suits their true risk appetite? #story
Generally my father in law does not introduce me to his friends for investment guidance. 1. Because generally I am extremely blunt when it comes to investment guidance 2. I only mostly explain #risks involved
But I think his friend really forced him so he finally introduced me to this gentleman who retired from government service, has good pension and also has a frugal life style so has lot of money saved. He wanted to invest his just matured FD into a MF because FD rates were low.
After few minutes of talking to him I realised he had never invested any money in #stocks #mfs or any equity instruments ever. As I continued I realised that he wanted to invest this money for a long term and wanted the wealth generated to be transferred to his son.

#OSHO

The #mind is a #coward, for those who listen to it become utterly cowardly. The mind is not an #adventurer, it is very #cautious. It takes every step with #thinking and #calculation until it is #certain that there is no #risk.
When everything is going good the mind comes in and says "watch out!" Because you listen to the mind's #fears you stop living. The mind would keep you always the same, never taking #risks.

Newness is an #enemy to the #mind, sameness is its #friend.
To #laugh is to #risk appearing a #fool

“..manufacturers like Nestle, Coca-Cola and Procter & Gamble also face growing scrutiny from investors who want to know what business #risks they face from #climatechange before deciding whether to buy their stock”

nbcsandiego.com/news/business/…
"Climate change is going to be disruptive to revenues and costs,"

“What I would want to know as an investor is what kind of strategy they have going forward."
Consumer goods account for about a third of greenhouse gas emissions, meaning companies that make them play a key role in efforts to keep global warming below 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 Fahrenheit) by the end of the century.

1/ Tweetstorm a comin' cuz @IvyBGrey really likes it when I "have a conversation with an article." First of all, super 💯 helpful and useful breakdown of varying #innovation approaches, so everyone trying to do all the innovation things, please read the article, like now thanks.
2/ Is "incremental" a dirty word? No. But to most people it #feels less exciting & flashy than "#disruptive." Yes, I said #feels. Bc most ppl probably will not read Ivy's excellent article or this tweetstorm bc they're not on Twitter. To them all this sounds/#feels like jargon.
2 / Exhibit A / From @DCaseyF who is now 5.7% as famous as @RealCarrotTop, who is in turn is now only 0.8% as Twitter famous as @EmrgencyKittens: geeklawblog.com/2016/09/im-wor…

Thread!!!!!!!

OK - here goes! My take on the legal issues around #BIM and #winfieldrock...
#BIM has huge potential for improving collaboration, particularly early stage, in #construction and thereby reducing #disputes and #performancegap
Problem is the limited take-up particularly among private sector – reasons include lack of knowledge (of how to use and of benefits), lack of standardisation (in what BIM means and in proprietary programmes used, although moving towards #Revit – barrier for SMES)
