Tonight on the @CNN #climateforum, Democratic candidates will talk through their plans to rapidly transition our country to clean energy. We’re guessing we’ll hear a lot about #renewables & carbon pricing. But what will they say about #nuclear energy?

#DemDebates
Will they mention that it’s the largest source of carbon free electricity in the US?

thx:@GovNuclear
Will anyone point out that, considering the scale of the challenge, we should get rid of fossil fuels before even thinking about getting rid of nuclear?

1. Prior to the Council vote, we requested the following info from APD:
-Who are the top Offenders in #atx?
-What offenses committed?
-Are they homeless?
-Drug abuser?
We were looking for the #s of homeless involved in crimes. If nothing else, to have a baseline
We did not get the info requested prior to the Council vote. All we wanted to know was just what percentage of the homeless were the main criminal element in #atx?
2. We saw the signs that Austin City Council had it all planned out ahead of time. They gave special information concerning the meeting to their SJW groups and planned. They planned it all on Monday prior to Thurs. meeting. This is how they work.

After reading this, your thinking on the brain will not be the same. The thoughts are mine. The words from @nickwarren #tweetstorm cc @subsetharry @kimadele10 @argent_phil @iPerrySimpson @ai_rajsharma @DaveHillman2 @Samlindley9 @CaroleAnnRice @scottkeyser @NikiCassidy @pennypower
#1 - They diagnosed me with #dyslexia when I was 43, but by then it didn’t matter.
#2 - I already knew my brain was different.

I’ve thought about, fought against, and written a lot on radicalization, applying Eric Hoffer’s theory on mass movements to Radical Islam. My article “The True Believer: Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements” lays out some of this. usacac.army.mil/CAC2/MilitaryR…
Hoffer covers a lot of terrain in his analysis. Two parts apply most strongly to modern day radicalism: his discussion of why mass movements have appeal and his analysis of the traits most likely to produce converts to a mass movement.
Hoffer proposes it is neither the abject poor, nor the sated middle class, nor the wealthy who are most likely attracted to mass movements. Instead, it is the newly poor, or those who feel they have lost status, prestige, or were promised such things, who are most susceptible.

A Note To Fellow #Software #Founders: Help Is Always Close At Hand
By Christian Owens (Forbes)
☝️There are tried and tested #solutions so reach out:
1.Stop thinking everything in terms of #competition
2.The world of VC is small so it’s easy to find people you need #advice from
3. #networkeffect& #globalisation: global issue for one company is always a local one for another
👉see P.Thiel “Zero to one”
4. Acknowledge that being a founder is a really, really hard thing to do with your life
☝️Avoid the Dunning-Kruger effect (the lower your ability the better you think you are at it)

A #data informed look at how the #human experience of #lawyering has changed over time.

Just as #clients need better #value propositions, #law firms need better business models. Meaningful #legal #transformation will occur where the two intersect.

H/T to @augierakow @robsaccone for the post #inspirelegal 🤓 email chain that #inspired this tweetable.

(Bc I’m a tweetable factory. 🤷🏻‍♀️)
Another reaction to this @wihender post: we NEED to deal with #automation anxiety in #legal.

Legacy models of law practice aren’t built for the pace of #business and volume of #information of the #digital age.

More #hours from more #lawyers can’t be the default answer.

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

1/ THREAD. What are possible #solutions to the threats #deepfakes and synthetic media could pose to evidence, truth and freedom of expression? Our survey from recent @witnessorg @firstdraftnews expert convening.
2/ Invest in MEDIA LITERACY + RESILIENCE/discernment for news consumers - how to spot both individual items of synthetic media (e.g. via visible anomalies such as mouth distortion often present in current deepfakes) as well as develop approaches to assessing image credibility
3/ Recent examples sharing commonsense guidance on this e.g. @CraigSilverman buzzfeed.com/craigsilverman… and @samanthsunne gijn.org/2018/05/28/wha…

(1/11) When I say..."The people closest to the pain, should be the closest to the power, driving & informing the policymaking..." THIS is what I mean. (A) When I wanted to break cycles of #poverty by strengthening pathways to #graduation, preventing #dropout #MA7
(2/11) for expectant & #parenting #teens, (still the #1 reason girls drop out, even with unplanned pregnancies on the decline) I invited them to the table to share their stories, struggles & to inform the #BPS policy we developed to better support them.
(3/11) (B) When I wanted to better understand why we were seeing an increase in #bicyclist & motor vehicle collisions, I contacted @bostonbikeunion I invited them to share their stories & struggles, 4 hrgs later, we had a crash data report & the 1st sideguard ord. in the country
