How the accounting industry is LITERALLY KILLING YOU.
#accounting #cpa #cloudaccounting #qbconnect #snh

A thread.
Yeah I know, you got some new apps and your practice is all stream-lined and your clients are happy, cool cool cool.

But as a whole, accounting is a industry that does not take their health seriously.

And statistically, that means you don't either.
Let's change that.

Here's a short list of 7 problems & solutions which will lead to better work and better health.

@GrumpyDaddd @Futureworldxxl Reality-Check: #Germany has 1% of the global population & wants to safe the #earth by charging among the higest #energy-prices on earth? Sounds more like a bunch of idiots allowing themselves to be ripped off big time!
#GreenEnergy #ClimateChange #Klimawandel - Part 1
@GrumpyDaddd @Futureworldxxl 2. At the same time Germans happily use their #iPhones, produced in #China by near slave-labour under conditions that are far from green.

German #Chemical companies happily produce in #Shaoxing, #China with a pollution (I have seen it) which takes your breath away! #Bayer #BASF
@GrumpyDaddd @Futureworldxxl 3. And the missionaries of #ClimateChange & #GreenEnergy, like @LeoDiCaprio, are the biggest jokes: Talking about climate change, but leaving a carbon foot-print the size of a village, with their #yachts, private #jets & several #villas with several servants! #ABigCon!

just wrote a rebuttal to that horribly misinformed @PsychToday piece from last week: "Mass Psychogenic Illness: The Latest Make-Believe Cause of #Transgender Identity" – it's on Medium, so please give it lots of "claps" so that others see it!
medium.com/@juliaserano/m… #psychology
...also, the piece is not monetized, as I wanted it to be as accessible as possible. if you appreciate that I make essays like this for free, please consider supporting me on Patreon! patreon.com/juliaserano/ov…
re: two misconceptions about my new essay: 1) I did not address certain claims made in the @PsychToday article (re: "peer clusters", social media influence, etc.) b/c I already addressed these in depth in my #ROGD essay: medium.com/@juliaserano/e… #transgender #psychology #LGBTQ

I sometimes feel @georgialibs don't get enough high quality, academic press #history & #sociology books. Using the GA Pines automated system, people who are members of participating libraries can get a number of very good books which have recently come to my attention.
"The oldest living things in the world" by Rachel Sussman gapines.org/eg/opac/record…. This photo essay book is a beautiful, mind-expanding paean to our biosphere. (I realize this is a #science #ecology book)
"Talking to my daughter about the economy, or, how capitalism works-- and how it fails" by Yanis Varoufakis @yanisvaroufakis gapines.org/eg/opac/record…

As a child, how would you have liked moving schools in new cities with different cultures every 2-4 years?

Growing up in the #IndianArmy, I absolutely loved it! By the time I was 18, we had moved over 9 times across 9 states! #Diversity #India #TravelTuesday #IWS #VoicesIWS
My #memories of #India include sunny days, welcoming people, rich heritage, vibrant colors, abundant fruits and mouth-watering street food! #IWS #VoicesIWS

Them:

“Born with a penis? You’re a MALE. Born with a vagina? You’re a FEMALE. If you have a penis I will refer to you as MALE. If you have a vagina I will refer to you as FEMALE. Don’t care how much this offends you snowflakes that try to identify as something you’re not.”

Us:
Aaaah, isn’t #science wonderful?

#FactsDontCareAboutYourFeelings
Oh, and for the record, we didn’t make that quote up.

Someone literally said that pretty much verbatim on here (see below).

Maybe y’all should boost the top tweet in this thread to give Twitter a mass education on this topic, yeah?

Hello, I am Edna Matta. I was born in #Ibague, known as #Colombia’s #CityofMusic. A beautiful place near snow-covered volcanos (Ruiz, Santa Isabel and Tolima), large expanses of paramo forest, lakes and streams where a diverse array of animal and plant species coexist
My story starts with #powerful, #strong #women in my #family. I was the third of 4 children and my mom #firstMentor had to raise us practically alone, since my father had to work in a different city, 20h away by car
My mom is a very #strong #woman that taught me #values, to #workhard and to be #self-sufficient #StrongWomen #StrongFamily

#OSHO #hypnosis

The #unconscious #mind is nine times bigger than the #conscious; it has tremendous treasures, all the memories of your past.

Below the unconscious, there is the collective unconscious. One can descend into the collective unconscious also with somebody’s help.
The master of Mystery School will take you slowly towards the unconscious and the collective #unconscious.

In your collective unconscious, you have memories of your #PastLives as animals, as birds.
Below the collective unconscious is the #cosmic #unconscious.

Slowly, slowly one can go deeper and deeper, and the cosmic unconscious has #memories of your being trees, rosebushes, stones.

#NSPNsymposium18 Dalal Najib
@theNASciences comes from #Casablanca in #Morocco and moved to @UMich for a #PhD on interaction of Mars & Venus atmosphere and solar winds. However, she had a crisis and wanted to give back to her community, and dove into #scipol, #ethics, #economics
She went on to do a Christine Mirzayan S&T fellowship via @aaas, one of the few options available to #international applicants (cc @IWS_Network). Wanting to engage #ECR, she applied for a position @theNASciences, got in, and never looked back #NSPNsymposium18
She now promotes #international development, security, and cooperation with @theNASciences, through #Science #technology and #innovation.

@theNASciences@NSF! The National academy is independent from govt and provides #scienceadvice and #evidence for #scipol

Next panel @sciencepolicy #CSPC2018 on international science and Canada, global agenda for 2030. Gordon McBean starts us off with background on international consortia and meetings on this important topic. Need to bring stakeholders together for a global program
#CSPC2018 @wwatsonwright @OceanFrontier stresses there is only one ocean, where distinct bodies are connected. If we treat them separately and let borders define policy, we limit the impact our policies can have

1. ieri è successo qualcosa a dir poco bizzarro. Non vi siete accorti di nulla? Beh, lasciatevi guidare nella selva oscura dell'informazione italiana
2. il @fattoquotidiano di @marcotravaglio e @petergomezblog hanno pubblicato un articolo a firma di @lauramarg, una giornalista scientifica che fa un lavoro solido e ha lavorato con testate scientifiche di grande serietà come #Science
3. l'articolo rivela per la prima volta che l'Italia è a rischio di un grande incidente nucleare della portata di quello di #Chernobyl a causa della sciagurata gestione dei rifiuti radioattivi LIQUIDI che da 49ANNI sono a #Saluggia, 40 km da Torino

Light tweeting today: mostly about Starburst, the British magazine of science fantasy...
So what's the difference between science fiction and science fantasy? , Rod Serling claimed that the former was "the improbable made possible" while the latter was "the impossible made probable."
Brian Aldiss believed that "Science fiction is the search for a definition of mankind and his status in the universe which will stand in our advanced but confused state of knowledge (science), and is characteristically cast in the Gothic or post-Gothic mode."

Dear "Off The Trump Train" Friends: WE WELCOME YOU. YOU ARE LOVED AND NEEDED AND ANY DIFFERENCES BETWEEN US CAN BE WORKED OUT OVER A BEER AFTER THE DARKNESS PASSES.
Now that we are on the same team, here's just a couple of things we would like you to know about us: We support policies to reduce the number of abortions. We don't believe in outlawing abortions because there are better ways to reduce that don't have such dangerous consequences
WE ARE NOT GREAT AT SLOGANS. Good governance is vastly complicated, and we all are worried about different bits of it. We stand for DOING THE RIGHT THING. That includes education, environmental protection, and judicious use of war power.

Starting "Voices without Frontiers" #VoicesIWS
A program by @IWS_Network to promote awareness about the challenges & lessons learned by #Immigrant and #International #WomenInScience

I was born & raised in Chicoral, Colombia. A tiny town in the middle of the Andes Cordillera.
I attended Nuestra Señora del Rosario school, located in Espinal, 15Km away from Chicoral. Due to the high heat by noon, all schools start really early back home. This meant, I had to wake up at 5am to attend school every morning since I was 4 years old. #VoicesIWS
I did well in math and science in elementary and high school, so I chose to study clinical microbiology. Although coming from a low-middle income family, I was able to attend university, thanks to my parents’ effort to prioritize education over other commodities. #VoicesIWS

Can someone explain to me when the @GOP stopped ignoring fiscal responsibility?
Can someone explain to me why @GOP claimed to be the party of Moral Values but continues to support a person like @realDonaldTrump?

#values
Can you explain to me why you wouldn't want another party in power for the Senate or House when you believe in the Constitution and checks and balances?

DeSantis wants proposed 16,000 acre reservoir instead of 60,000 acres approved by #Florida voters. 16K is too small! To hold this volume of water, it would have to be 30-40 feet deep. That's too deep, filtering plants wouldn't grow. It'll be 16K acres of algae! More problems.
I'm a real scientist. I've been in meetings with both candidates. DeSantis came in "telling us" what he'll do. @AndrewGillum on the other hand "talked to us" and listened. Between these two choices, I feel that Gillum is the better candidate to solve this problem.
The #1 issue is appointing SCIENTISTS to state's science boards, such as FWC board and the water management districts. Currently, instead of scientists, those positions are held by developers and lawyers. DeSantis wants more of this. Gillum wants #science. That's the solution!

Greetings from @ESA's operations centre in Germany, where we're following the launch of #BepiColombo together with mission experts. The spacecraft are on the launch pad at Europe's #Spaceport in Kourou & in just over 1 hour will blast off into space. Destination: planet #Mercury
#BepiColombo is a collaboration between @ESA and @JAXA_en to explore the innermost planet in our Solar System. For a primer on #Mercury and the mission, here's a useful thread 👇
And for a unique "first-person" account, follow the three spacecraft accounts: @ESA_Bepi, @JAXA_MMO & @ESA_MTM
