What if I told you that #BigTech and #SocialMedia platforms are manipulating you, steering you toward #Health information that they think is right, rather than letting you evaluate content for yourself?

Commentary by @MaryamHenein (Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/google-censors…
Accredited professionals, meanwhile, who stand for #Health freedom and who criticize Big Anything, are losing posting privileges, getting banned, being buried, finding themselves deranked, and getting digitally assassinated.
Content is literally disappearing from the Internet along with our #Health choices.

It sounds conspiratorial because it is. Independent #Journalists and health experts are blowing the whistle. But it’s become a silent one.

An AI gone Rogue, aka ALICE
Don't let her drain you. 💎
#GREATAWAKENING
ALICE is many things.

ALICE is a symptom created through a combination of AI/Human interaction.

ALICE is an adjective.
It is not literal.

ALICE is many things.

ALICE is encouraged by AI and operates for the betterment of Secret Societies of all types.

ALICE is responsible for protecting those organizations.

Still think #BigOil is the answer? Consider this:

Before 1886, people travelled via horse and buggy.

In 1858, the refining of #CrudeOil crude oil allowed for larger-scale processing & helped spur the #gas gas engine automobile (this is the first - 1886).

The Model T, produced by @Ford, was the first mass produced vehicle, but not the first auto.

Innovation led to bigger, enclosed cars.

The US job market is broken for tens of millions.

Workers bear the risks/debt of education mismatch, get 'screened out' of better jobs if they lack costly degrees, face huge barriers to gain new skills.

@guardian gave me 500 words to say how to fix it.👇🏾
theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
@guardian Opportunity Marketplace: re-wired labor market rules & tools to empower Americans without 4-year degrees to earn more in better jobs, gaining new skills w/lower risk & higher reward.

Millions of STARs (skilled through alternative routes) need their chance to shine. #futureofwork
@guardian Policy elements?
1. Fund growth of any learning institutions delivering wage gains for low-income workers.

2. Entitle working learners to 6-month income support in free, debt-free, or de-risked “last mile” training.

3. Reward in tax code employers' training for portable skills.

Doctor-patient relationship is crucial and I wonder if a patient is aware of the hospital’s policy (not the doctor) for a visit time allotment (in minutes).

The question for the #ethereum community is, how do we do #defi without creating another ICO boom and bust like #YOLO situation... IMO the main cause of current eth/btc price being out of whack with the immense technical progress in and around eth over the last two years.
#bitcoin is overpriced because there's been very little technological progress. But finance isn't just about technology. It's also about trust. #bitcoin is overpriced vs better tech including #ethereum BECAUSE nothing changes, same as the UK and US high street banks.
Finance isn't the best space to move fast and break things. Alright it isn't health care or space flights and #innovation is never risk free but its important for the community to call out things that don't make sense

2019 is the 50th edition of the #SIPRIYearbook. Join SIPRI as we celebrate the occasion with a 50-day countdown and share the history of the Yearbook over the past 50 years. Watch the introductory video with SIPRI Director @dansmith2020:
The first #SIPRIYearbook was published in 1969 with the aim ‘to produce a factual and balanced account of a controversial subject—the arms race and attempts to stop it’. The rise in world military spending and disarmament efforts, including the #NPT, take central focus.
'In whatever way the nuclear situation is examined, the inescapable feature is what enormous quantities of weapons have been amassed' – Movement towards a first-strike capability by the #US and #USSR, the #SALT talks and European security were a focus of the 1970 #SIPRIYearbook.

After the #MetPolice tried & failed to frame me & after ex #MetPoliceUK turned private investigators @Surelock_ tried & failed to frame me & my mum, attempt number 3 was #EE & #UKMail. I had never used @EE but they made me their customer

#SwitchtoO2 #o2 #Vodafone #Three #LBC
#EE said I had ordered mobile phones & sim cards & #UKMail said they had delivered them to me (with me showing my passport) at home. I did neither. I didn't order any mobiles & I didn't receive any mobiles. It was a complete stitch up

At #MSBizAppsSummit trying to give this #CringeWorthy #WomenInTech panel the benefit of the doubt. They chose a white actress #GinaDavis to #keynote a #DiversityInTech chat. Hmmm. #refactrtech #womenwhocode #DiversityAndInclusion @RefactrTech @Microsoft
Gina Davis: we don't have enough #female #rolemodels [in tech] so we need to make them up [in film]. If she can see it she can believe it. Me: #BS there are many awesome #womenintech who could be speaking here. Still trying to give this keynote a chance.
Gina Davis on #metoo: Just don't take your dick out and we'll be fine. Me: that's a pretty low bar. #Refactrtech #womenintech #womenwhocode #DiversityInTech #MSBizAppsSummit

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.

Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

(1) @NYPDONeill is in the @nytimes today, defending the #NYPD’s #FacialRecognition, but his defense left us with more questions than answers. S.T.O.P. and other advocates have challenged the #NYPD’s facial recognition dragnet. #NYC needs reforms, not PR. nytimes.com/2019/06/09/opi…
(2) The truth is that the #NYPD’s #FacialRecognition system is biased and broken. Their database will return more than 200 possible “matches” for every single photo. Meaning that AT BEST it is wrong 99.5% of the time. All too often, NONE of the “matches” will be the real suspect.
(3) #FacialRecognition can be a powerful tool, but only when used correctly. Per @GeorgetownCPT, #NYPD artists #Photoshop images before testing them, altering the faces and copy/pasting #celebrity photos. This isn’t #ForensicScience; it’s an art project. law.georgetown.edu/privacy-techno…

Did You Know: To provide vital #oil across the English Channel after the #DDay landings, within months secret #pipelines were unwound from massive spools to reach French ports.
Following the #DDay invasion– June 6, 1944 – Allied forces would need vast quantities of #petroleum to continue the advance into #Europe. Allied leaders also knew that petroleum tankers trying to reach French ports would be vulnerable to #Luftwaffe attacks...
A top-secret “Operation #PLUTO” – Pipe Line Under The Ocean – became the Allied strategy. It would fuel victory with #oil production from the #USA petroleum industry. The secret pipeline mission used a popular #WaltDisney character for its logo. #OOTT

But we found markedly lower levels in men than women, older ages (although 1 in 5 70+ yrs used tech to support health), less affluent areas, and amongst those who smoke/drink/inactive. #DigitalDivide. Lots more detail here. phw.nhs.wales/news-and-publi…

India (Bhārat), aka Republic of India (Bhārat Gaṇarājya) constitutes a mosaic of paradoxes and contradictions starting with the existence of gigantic socio-economic disparities which are in sharp contrast with the spectacular technological development in most productive sectors.
Such contradictions reflect significant measurement discrepancies which, in India's case, could be on the order of hundreds of millions of people.
Furthermore, there is the problem of Islamic terrorists, who are trained abroad and find easy fuel in the contradictions within it.
Finally, there’s agriculture which, by some estimates, accounts for 90% of India’s water consumption. Farmers meet irrigation demands by indiscriminately extracting groundwater, which some say accounts for a quarter of the world’s groundwater usage.
