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." Image
"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."

Betsy Devos: "The rule should be that kids go back to school this fall." Here comes a thread on schools, the pandemic, and taking action. @betsydevosed
Devos and others in the WH circle say -- quite simply -- children should be going (via mass transport) to local full-time, in-person instruction this fall. businessinsider.com/devos-the-rule…
The immediate response so this should be "Yes, and..." BTW, the response so all these pronouncement-style non-actionable platitudes is almost _always_ "Yes, and..." Don't get fooled into playing the _opposition_. That's a losing gambit.

A THREAD: One that [they] don’t want you to see. They’d rather you be damaged from what they’re trying to mandate on us. Follow me down the rabbit hole to see what I mean. Reality is not what you think it is. You’re living in the #Matrix. Pass it on. R/T. #TheMoreYouKnow
OSHA considers anything below 19.5% oxygen concentration to be a hazardous atmosphere that can threaten life or health. Anyone who tries and “debunks” this is a brainwashed sheep. Air is only 20% to begin with. You need to see how quick it drops below 20%? Watch this. #MaskHoax
The extremely brainwashed will try and defend the #WearAMask hoax. It is proof of the brainwashing, as their “leaders” have recently weaponized them to “debunk” something as simple as OSHA minimum acceptable levels of oxygen that is safe to breathe.

This is the single best advice for any doctor at any stage: listen to nurses. In particular, listen to Black nurses

Also, protect nurses. In healthcare the terminology is “writing orders” - if that is not power imbalance, I don’t know what is

#MedTwitter
#NurseTwitter
#MedEd
One thing I have noticed on social media is: even at pre-med stage, the condescension & disrespect towards nurses sometimes is already there

Much of recent #MedTwitter drama I engaged in was because, though I knew it would be wise to “look away” could not

Across the board, regardless of race, when nurses, or anyone, is bullied within in clinical practice settings - setting that already have high rates of error

Thread > Temporary public realm changes: 10-point checklist

How can spaces adapt for the new normal?

A challenge for local authorities and others, for legal and planning frameworks, and creativity in re-imagining hidden and underused spaces.

Thanks to @DrSDMillington (1/12)
1. #Safety

Barriers between people and traffic need careful consideration - TFL research suggests removing some barriers can promote safer and slower driving.

Where possible, it may be safer to close streets to traffic.

(TFL research: foi.tfl.gov.uk/FOI-2274-1718/…)
2. #Adaptability

A key quality of Tactical Urbanism - to ensure places can adapt to changing trading conditions and help manage other potential disruptions to high streets

e.g. 2m social distancing - how quickly could infrastructure be reconfigured if guidance changes?

Let’s talk #safetyculture

@TheIHI

It’s a framework for a harm reduction towards all: patients & families as well as all staff

Important:
growth mindset
instead of
fixed mindset

to have needed uncomfortable conversations

#MedTwitter #AcademicTwitter #MedEd #NurseTwitter
This framework has been applied to reducing harm, mostly through medication error (though intended to achieve population health)

Then was expanded to patient experience

Also, cost of care

More recently we have added clinician wellbeing

=quadruple aim

ihi.org/communities/bl…
What has not been clearly stated in any of these #safety framework is disparities, structural inequity, or racism

The acute care side of the hospital - money maker - thinks of this as type of safety & #quality

but not #populationhealth

#Implicitbias elicits 🙄😡😴 response

There’s so much happening in 🌍 right now - including many tragedies - but farmers are asking you to lend your support to the campaign to protect 🇬🇧 food standards from being undercut in future trade deals.

Here’s why this is important & why you should care [1] Image
British #farmers produce your food to some of the highest standards of animal #welfare, environmental #sustainability & #safety in the 🌍

Many of these are 🇪🇺 standards. With #Brexit we are now free to alter them. But what does this mean? [2]
So domestic production standards are set to rise even higher, which is great (who doesn’t want quality?)

But govt looks set to conclude new trade deals with countries such as 🇺🇸 which would allow food imports which it would be illegal to produce here [3]

Marketers hired by hospitals can be new source of exploitation

They know that the most credibility is with nurses & doctors

So will use employees for marketing & extension of hospital brand

But quick to penalize same employees for own, personal use of #SoMe

=Value extraction
I mean, personally, I built my reputation outside of hospital activities

I created, as volunteer, used no hospital or university resources, paid my own travel or obtained community grants, then yes, was recognized internally after creating external success, like this:
Or like this - I do all of this on own. No one trained me. I pay membership fees to LinkedIn

If I were to mess up, I’d need to deal with consequences from hospital, licensing bodies, etc

Wherever I go, I contribute to good optics & metrics

Yes.. and more than offended, I would reframe to respond with: your obvious bias reveals you are not a person who can be trusted to apply standards fairly for good outcomes.

Bias = unsafe.

Not about anyone’s emotional or intellectual reaction.

About #safety & #quality.
Discussed w/ that frame w/ @becker_sbecker

Look, I’ve got “grit” & resilience & can manage my emotions just fine

But are *you* safe or able to provide quality results? Using my former #Medicaid medical director lens, low quality = low value, waste, harm

go.beckershospitalreview.com/scott-becker-i…
“Safe spaces” emotionally, yes - but safe for whom?

Is safe space code for protecting your fragility when hard, complex problems are identified & you must confront some unpleasant realities?

Hard problems are... hard
Hard things are uncomfortable

Vetting

Accounts with the following are likely pro-establishment:

-Anti-Trump jokes
-simple slurs instead of analysis (‘Trump’s insanity is killing everyone’)
-pro Obama/Hillary/Warren content
-‘PRU’ ‘WTP’ ‘I’m with her’ ‘MeToo’
-‘CEO’ ‘taxpayer’ ‘patriot’ ‘citizen’

2/5
Interacting

-tagging GOP leaders decreases #BidenBullies (they are afraid of tr011s)
-yah Obama/Hillary in DNC callouts; same reason
-tweets with swearing will be hidden, use * (Eg ‘sh*t)
-don’t assume tags are what they look like: browse feeds before using

Since I've not been paid or replied to, I am declassifying. One of the biggest hurdles in building high speed rail is paying for the project. The solution is built in from the beginning. Its not just that you build it, its how you build it.

Right after hurricane Harvey Texas was flooded and I was talking about how the maglev would still be running because it was elevated. All you need to do is make it to the terminal. Thats when Trump declared National emergency and classified my work under nuclear preparedness.
Imagine a bridge, that instead of crossing the highway, runs lengthwise. It's elevated so it doesn't get in the way of animals or humans. It never stops, it never slows. Because it is elevated, accidents are almost unheard of. Making emergency evacuation safe and quick.

"Science shows that early exposure to circumstances that produce persistent #fear and chronic #anxiety can have lifelong consequences by disrupting the developing architecture of the brain."

[National Scientific Council on the Developing Child, 2010]
"While some of these experiences are one-time events and others may reoccur or persist over time, all of them have the potential to affect how children learn, solve problems, and relate to others."
This is a topic worthy of discussion. Consider WEF's rapidly accelerating consolidation of global power. In Jan 2019 WEF exploited the climate crisis by deliberately inciting #fear - in tandem with partners & media. Today it exploits the COVID-19 pandemic.

This is historical. Zero pedestrian and cyclist deaths in #Helsinki in 2019!

The graph shows the reduction of road deaths since 1960. We're getting close to reaching #VisionZero.

#TrafficSafety
#PedestrianSafety

news.cision.com/city-of-helsin…
The number of traffic fatalities in Helsinki has been steadily decreasing in recent years. The worst year on record was in 1965, when 84 people died in Helsinki traffic.
Enhanced traffic #safety is the sum of several factors. Safety has improved due to improvements to the street environment, increased traffic control and the development of vehicle safety measures. But reducing speed limits has been the key factor.
