I just read a long thread about cold calling. It started with this tweet. Ended with others telling him how great he is. Again, why doesn’t anyone acknowledge that many of the people in the seats would choose not to be there if they had the choice? /1
How do people so easily dismiss that part? “Cold call the simpletons to force them to get on board lest they be embarrassed in front of the group.” Here is a strategy that attempts to take all choice away from the people sequestered in school desks. /2
“You can force me to be in this room but you can’t make me pay attention.”
“Oh yes I can. I’m going to call on you and ask you a question in front of the group. If you aren’t paying attention others will snicker and you will feel low key shame.” /3

I'm one of those rlly super #secret agents they leave alone.

Trust is built when you help others to develop their abilities & have Capabilities, or when they help you to develop yours, as in the common case of being a parent.

However, blindly placing your trust in others who want to enhance your capabilities involves taking a risk..

( e.g. driving on the road, doctors & surgery, taking your kids to #school... chefs... etc )

The truth is that evry1 is fallible, including yerself, & YOU must TRUST you are choosing the right actions.

(CHOICE in actions follows how Capabilities are obtained)

You must rely on your own capabilities & make your own choices.

Where there's a WHEEL=WILL, there's a way.

#Afscheid nemen bestaat niet….ik ga wel weg maar verlaat jullie niet.

Alles wat ik deed deed ik vanuit mijn #hart. Alle #kinderen, meer dan 1000 die ik uit de #jeugdzorg haalde vertelde ik dat alles wat ze vanuit hun hart deden goed was ook al waren anderen het er
niet mee eens. Ik leerde ze achter hun eigen #beslissingen te blijven staan hoe ze er ook om #veroordeeld zouden worden en ik leerde ze een eigen #mening te vormen. Vrijwel al deze #kinderen werden uitgekotst door de #school of #maatschappij. Ze werden #opgesloten #afgesnauwd en
onterecht uit hun huizen #gesleurd. Allemaal zijn ze goed terecht gekomen. Niet 1 kind viel uit.

Dat dat zo goed ging kostte mij mijn #kop. Uiteindelijk sloten ze mij op en maakten me helemaal kapot. Ik moest er zelfs voor in het #buitenland gaan wonen mijn #zoon achterlatend

Scientists to make mutant forms of new bird flu to assess risk LONDON (Reuters) - Scientists are to create mutant forms of the H7N9 bird flu virus that has emerged in China so they can gauge the risk of it becoming a lethal human pandemic. 2013 👇
The genetic modification work will to result in highly transmissible and deadly forms of H7N9 being made in several high security laboratories around the world, but it is vital to prepare for the threat, the scientists say.
The new bird flu virus, which was unknown in humans until February, has already infected at least 133 people in China and Taiwan, killing 43 of them, according to the latest World Health Organization (WHO) data.

Gain-of-Function Mutation Experiments Explained…
This fascination led the silver-haired virologist to venture into controversial gain-of-function mutation research — work by scientists that adds abilities to pathogens, including experiments that focus on SARS and MERS, the coronavirus cousins of the COVID-19 agent.
The mutations that gave the virus its ability to be airborne transmissible are gain-of-function (GOF) mutations. GOF research is when scientists purposefully cause mutations that give viruses new abilities in an attempt to better understand the pathogen. In Fouchier’s experiments

Hello everyone! Welcome to our #tweetchat titled, "Transforming Social Norms: Girl Child Education" dedicated to #EducationDay2023, an annual event that raises awareness on the state of education in the world. The theme for this year is "Invest in people, prioritise education."
Formal education is critical to improving people’s quality of life and the nation's development. Globally, 244 million children and youth are out of school, and 771 million adults are illiterate.

Dear Geveret Smith,

I am writing to address some concerns that you expressed in your letter about the class #holiday activities held over the past week.

First of all, I want to express that our #PublicSchool loves ALL our #students.

We have a #diverse #student body, we hold #diversity training every year, and we prioritize being good #allies to our #Christian students.

Naturally, we were surprised to receive such a long list of complaints from you about our #winter #holiday #programming, considering that we go so far out of our way to accommodate our #Christian students.

School Christmas Concerts and Increased Risk of Transmission

It is that time of year again for #concerts where #school gyms are packed with people, singing, dancing, and generating a lot of respiratory aerosols with likely poor ventilation. 🧵1/ Image of Christmas concert ...
Modern mechanical ventilation systems are no match for that kind of high occupancy over 90 minutes as you can see from how fast CO2 levels increased ( ). 2/
Most people will be unmasked which means an even higher number of unfiltered aerosols going into the air in a space that is not ventilated well enough with that many people. 3/

1) This is the cover of Good Will Hunting. Many people argue Robin William’s portrayal of a therapist in cinematic history [despite strangling and threatening the client in that famous scene]. Still, look at where Robin’s character did his best work: #Outdoors Image
2) This thread is about therapy outdoors as I was recently labelled as an “abuser”. I understand where this comes from my #research about survivors’ experiences in #WildernessTherapy. Good Will Hunting is not about Wilderness Therapy. They aren’t the same thing.
3) In 2020, I co-edited a book with Prof Nevin Harper titled Outdoor Therapies. This book examined #AdventureTherapy, #Nature-Based Therapy, Horticulture, #ForestTherapy, #Surf Therapy, #AnimalAssisted, &, yes, #WildernessTherapy.

Due to a $300 million budget cut to the City’s public schools, teachers, social workers, and other beloved school employees were told not to come back to work next year.

But the city is far from broke. And this is all about priorities.
1/4 Image
In his budget, Adams found enough cash to increase spending on cops but not enough to help schools retain student support, arts, and music programs. Funding that supports students’ futures and educators’ livelihoods shouldn’t be cut — especially not now...
as our city emerges from the trauma of the pandemic.

The sweeping cuts to education – estimated to top #300 million across 1,000+ schools – demonstrate plainly the dangers of giving near total control over education to a mayor who does not value education.
