With the publication of the #LevellingUpWhitePaper, today, I'm looking forward to what should be a timely discussion on how Govts could work with the Private Sector to deliver on the #LevellingUp agenda #IfGlevellingup
First speaker @SCCI_Sara says there is an "extreme appetite" from businesses to work with the Government. Notes that in #Stafordshire in particular, there is a sense of relief that spatial strategy & local economies are "on the agenda at last" #IfGLevellingUp
.@greatermcr's John Wrathmell agrees. Says that the #CombinedAuthority has been concerned about #LevellingUp the region "before the government invented the phrase" & says that wanting to increase opportunity for all should be a "clear goal" of any Govt #IfGLevellingUp

Excited to share my new #study with my colleague Toshiaki Yoshida @to4akiyo4da at @NUPoliSci! We measured strong negative #policy feedback effects of #nuclearpower plants on the overall #socialcapital of cities that host them! Key policy insights for #energy. Tweetorial below!
@to4akiyo4da and I asked, does adopting #nuclearpower strength or weaken cities' civil society? NPPs promised to improve #rural economies, but led to mixed outcomes in Japan (eg. @dojin_tw's article How about civil society?
To measure strength of #civilsociety, we used 4 proxies for social cohesion/#socialcapital: total migration (do people stay or leave?), crime rates (strong norms or not?), voter turnout (are they invested?), winning party vote (strong linking ties to govt or not?)

"Only 20 said yes"
Gotta love how massive income inequality is just glossed over in some reporting to help create the myth of the rugged individualist American entrepreneur. I know whole families that probably couldn't raise an EXTRA $50K in a year
Last semester I taught my @MorganStateU about #SocialCapital and one of the questions I asked was:
If you asked everyone you know in your personal or professional network for $1,000 how much could you raise in one week? They're college kids so most of them guessed maybe 5-8K
The question is framed that way because anybody may have that one rich relative or mentor who could write you a check. But VERY few people could draw upon MULTIPLE connections if the minimum give is $1K. Access to that kind of wealth is even more rare for black Americans

#WEF & Prince of Wales: The Green Horizon Summit: Nov. 9-11 2020. Attended by 2500. Led by 100+ corporate & climate "leaders" including "Prince" Charles, UN's Guterres, Lagarde, Carney, BlackRock, etc.


Let's start w/ the ruling class imperative to rebrand #capitalism (Oct, 23, 2020) - in order to save it.

Schwab: "At the forefront [we need] to create a new model,
a new concept, a new definition of capitalism...

Schwab, continued: "the old definition comprises only financial capital. But actually human & social capital, [] & of course natural capital - is as important as financial capital."

Ahead, as part of the #GreatReset, is the finacialization of nature. "#Ecosystem services" & #biodiversity will be bought, sold & traded on #WallStreet. This will be the largest transformation of the global economic system in modern history.
It must be stopped. @nodealfornature
Assigning monetary value to nature ("#NaturalCapital") will replace #GDP. The very corporations & institutions that have destroyed the natural world, will then own what remains - what they have not yet destroyed.

Nature's contribution (theft) to the global economy is est. at 125 trillion $ annually, while world's annual #GDP is est. at 85.9 trillion dollars (2018). "Natural Capital" accounting will replace #GDP.

The financialization of #SocialCapital will follow.

Recognize the kind of people you want around you. Be a person of value.
2. #socialcapital
As much as possible...don't burn bridges. You don't have to be cordial with everyone but try to be civil. The world is such a small place.
3. #socialcapital
Keep in touch with people. A text today...a call to show them you remember them.
Give thoughtful gifts. To people you consider part of your social capital. Let people of value remember you as a person of value. Don't ever be a parasite.

New preprint, whose main point can be summarized by 3 maps: the share of Catholics in Western German regions (center) strongly correlates with AfD vote shares (right) when taking into account whether the region historically belonged to Prussia (left). Why? #polisciresearch (1/12)
The argument in a nutshell: the historical oppression of Catholics in Prussia led to a specific form of political mobilization and this mobilization still inhibits people in these regions from voting AfD. Just compare the districts Münster (4,9% AfD) and Deggendorf (19,2%) (2/11)
The same relationship exists in Rhineland-Palatine, a “hyphen-state” created from a formerly Prussian North and non-Prussian South after WWII. The more Catholic a region (center) in former Prussia, the weaker is the AfD (right). No such effect exists outside of Prussia. (3/11)

Today, I want to tell you about the power of asking for help. I want to tell you about the need to be specific even when asking for help. It is important to know what and where you need help in else you'll be asking for all the wrong things.
2. When I hear people say, "I can never ask for help", it always amazes me.
1. Because you can't do it alone
2. God will not come down to help you
3. You go farther when you have a strong social support.
3. Except you don't help others too, never be ashamed or afraid to ask for help when you need it. You are worried about getting No? You shouldn't be, my friend. It is a part of life. As long as you're a dependable person yourself and you surround yourself with the right network,

Gig economy (#AnalysisThread) favors hard work and offers little to no protections to those who want free gibs.

The state of California deems that very racist & sexist (see what they did there?) and wants to eradicate the #GigEconomy;wants to give everybody exact same conditions Image
Gig economy is weighted more by merit than by social capital. This makes it very un-controllable by the media, who rely on control via the #SocialCapital

The media, the progressive groups attack everything they can't control. Image
Large organizations (inc. labor unions) rely more on social capital than on merit. Hard to measure individual contributions; activism gives warm feels.

Anybody with social capital is given job, promotion, titles, budget - even if delivering no value; even if *negative* value. Image

Ologbon morawon. Eni togo nio mope oun go. Sugbon te ba wifun eni o go, yoo dija. (The wise people know themselves, it is the daft person that doesn't know he's daft, but when you tell the daft person he's daft

This is the way I see people that argue blindly on public forums like SM after several corrections and presentation with facts. Some of them are even arguing with experts that are kind enough to present the facts to them. Nkan to tiniloju gba niyen.
3. Anyone can make a mistake, but you should be able to say "I apologize, I didn't realize I was wrong".
It happened to me here once. I came across a tweet talking about 'elevator baby' on Netflix. In my excitement, I thought it was Anchor baby.

I'm face blind so I didn't realize this at first but @_JesseTheGrey_ pointed out that the second person to shout #HongKongProtests was like 8 years old.

That is FUCKING disgusting.
That kid who ran out to shout was WAY too young to understand what's happening in Hong Kong, it is reasonable to assume he was coached and had a chaperone.

So where were they?
Only the Arbiter in Ourbos knows what is in a Man's heart, but it isnt unfair to assume this kid was a Political Kamikaze...

1/ #THREAD Ah, teeny tiny demographical instance of something, hastily wound up to a coy, careful kind of un-endorsement of something else, even uses paper in a medical / scientific journal to try substantiate this un-endorsement placement #Beware #BullAtWork How 'well-connected'
2/ and how reminiscent of a certain type of anti-vaccination trolling / disinformation.😬 #Questions such as: A/what percentage of the population actually use the product B/ what percentage of that specific demographic have been injured seriously, in a clinical sense or in the --
3/ particular mode described in the, eh, 'article' ? C/ So even if as seems likely this only verifiably happened to a tiny % of users,& even if the argument that it is all just public knowledge/public info. is applied so it appears to be, lets say for the heck of it, 'authentic',
