The most common question I get is how do I work in tech policy? The biggest barrier is that these roles are often under promoted! See below for top resources (thread) #tech #techpolicy #privacy #cyber #infosec #cybersecurity
Women in Security and Privacy wisporg.com/job-board is a great resource and a great organization promoting women in tech!

We are heading back to bipolar/multipolar world, is it good/bad 4 int community only time will tell. Wht we r certainly seeing is more aggression on part of nations, specially 1 thats tryin 2 go into bipolar world or makin presence felt thts #China
They (China) are becoming more n more aggressive and we share land borders with them. Its time for us to start looking at our strategies as to how we are going to deal with the two borders... aggressive adversaries, Pak on Western front & China on the North: CDS Gen Bipin Rawat
We need to also start looking at transformation for the betterment and ensuring the national security architecture that we want to evolve is capable of handling the threats that are emerging. To do this we need jointmanship amongst all the security forces: Gen Rawat at @iicdelhi

In #biotech #stocks today, I highlight $BLI Berkeley Lights which is currently down -11%. The trend is still looking downwards since Dec 2020 when it had a remarkable burst of what I would call "frothiness" and since then it's been on a gentle downwards trajectory.
Sometimes these big short hikes are not entirely rational, and as of late, with the emergence of the meme stock phenomenon, normal decent-looking #biotech companies can be hijacked by pump-and-dumpers that don't even care at all about what they invest in.
This is nowadays magnified by the Robin Hood's of the world of investing, which act as an amplifier of the crowd behaviour that is decoupled from any logical thinking.

Okay here goes... let’s talk about “Retroactive Promotions.” (A thread)
This rant is inspired by a friend who told me they are (finally) getting promoted. Their boss said “We are so proud of the work you are doing, which has clearly been at X level this year. We are ‘promoting’ you to X level, yay! You should see it come through in 6 months.”
I congratulated my friend. They have worked INSANELY hard and produced AMAZING results at a challenging time. But it reignited my rage for this thing companies like to call the “retroactive promotion.”

In #biotech #stocks news, one of the #LiquidBiopsy #CancerDx stocks in my list is $BNR Burning Rock, a company with presence mainly in Asia that started trading in the NASDAQ a while ago. It is now at lowest levels having recently gone below the $20 mark Image
At around $2B valuation, they are still in the top 10 of companies in the #LiquidBiopsy #CancerDx field: bit.ly/liqbiopsy Image
Notice that #GrailBio is still marked at $2B valuation in my table: this is not the $8B figure that #Illumina is intending to buy it at, but I'll wait until the acquisition is completed (and not legally challenged by the US/EU authorities) before updating the value in the table.

#Global #ETF (thread): 26 Aug 2021

- 2020 worst perf #sectors making still leading in 2021 $IXG $IXC

- This is helping #oil producing countries with #SaudiArabia & #UAE in top5 #Country ETF YTD performers in USD $KSA $UAE

- #SouthAfrica $EZA still in top30 YTD performers
2/12

#EmergingMarkets #ETF seriously lagging #DevelopedMarkets ETF, mostly due to disinvestment from #China.

#SouthAfrica might need a lot of catch up, but $EZA YTD performance in USD (+8.2%) is still ahead of $EEM (-0.95%)
3/12

#Global #Value #stocks enjoyed short-term recovery to the end of April, but since then, $IWVL #ETF really struggled against #Quality & #Momentum. Over 1yr period it is however still the best-performing #factor, very much in its recovery phase.

@RajivMessage in conversation
with @BeerBicepsGuy on #Theranveershow @InfinityMessage



Rajiv ji is intellectual kshatriya of Bharat with right kind of intent , intellect & execution ability

My compressed key takeaways from podcast

A Thread 🧵
(1/10)
At start he speaks about purpose of life personal , National ,spiritual , social which everyone should decide or atleast think of it and act accordingly.

Then about need of reinvention where you do certain things at certain time , you flexibly change than being rigid on life .
As In 19's industrial revolution brought complete change in whole world rajiv ji predicts that Artificial intelligence revolution is the next big thing .

Where owner use big data to train #Algorithm & it trains consumer .
The one who owns big #tech he is ultimate King of 🌍.

Can ethical, inclusive tech help to create a better world?

This @wef report argues that critical #technologies such as artificial intelligence (#AI) and machine learning, have already defined our world.

1/4
@AlbertoMChi @oost_marcel @SaeedBaygi #ML #BigData
Their point is that it's not the #technology, but its curation that matters. Technology for technology's sake is neither positive nor negative.

To paraphrase Tim Cook over the weekend...it's all about trust.

2/4
@jaypalter @terence_mills @KeithKeller #TimCook #BigTech Image
It's a theme I keep coming back to because there are lots of examples of "bad #tech", by which i mean "bad USES of tech".

#Facebook and #Robinhood come to mind, and there are many more.

The Electric Mobility dilemma of Legacy vs New-Age

There is no doubt that Legacy Auto businesses might be able to leverage their scale, capital & experience to roll out EVs faster than EV startups..

But does that make them a better investment?

🧵👇🏻

#Megatrends #investing
2/n)

Historically, disruptive #innovation has always come from outside the traditional bounds of the industry.

From #Apple's iPhone📱 & #Amazon's AWS☁️ to
#SpaceX's Reusable Rockets🚀, the incumbents have more often than not, failed to innovate and/or spot the disruptors.

🧵👇🏻
3/n)

In case of Electric Mobility though, there's one critical factor that's keeping incumbents in the race: POLICY📜

Since EVs are now a necessity to reduce global #carbonfootprint & control the #ClimateCrisis, incumbents have no option but to cannibalize their products.

More on #biotech #stocks. It's summertime, and there is less activity, definitely on my Twitter feed. A bit more time to look at things in perspective. Those who follow this account will by now be aware that I think there is a #tech #bubble in the stock market that will pop soon.
How soon? I've been saying it for about 1 year, so not soon enough for my predictions. But if we look at the NASDAQ in the last 6 months, it doesn't look very attractive: Image
If we place the different stock indexes in a 1D line, from safer, less risky to more #tech heavy and in my opinion more inflated, here is what we see in the last 6 months: Image

1/ #Tech in general, and #InfoSec in particular, are obsessed with "work-life balance" and of building public perception that "you can have it all: a career AND a life" — seeing this as essential for filling undersized & inadequately diverse hiring pipelines.

And not JUST this…
2/ And not JUST this… clearly there's a mental health aspect to maintaining work-life balance, because if an employee is overworking, overstressing, or burning out then (frankly) the employer HAS a problem, and likely IS the problem.

So far, so obvious. But…
3/ Then we find those who opine 1/more of:

a) to succeed you MUST work & study in free time

b) working (etc) free time DOES NOTHING for career success

c) HAVING THIS DEBATE is exclusionary / puts people off

A & B are incorrect, and C lacks integrity:

The Tech Evangelism in out country feels extremely disconnected from "Tech".

We have the same people stuck at 40% learning spreading knowledge on 10% in a recycled loop.
#tech #programming #computerscience
The content on "How to use GitHub?, How to use LinkedIn effectively? Build your own personal brand?" is so exploited over the past 2 years it almost feels like nobody is programming after the freshman year.
Why is it rare to find people at 80% of the journey imparting knowledge at 50%-70%?
