Remember when Nelson blew the whistle that Russia was inside Florida’s voter registration system, & Rick Scott implied he was crazy, but Nelson was right & then Scott defied the polls to win the race after an unusually high number of mail ballots in South FL weren’t returned? 1/

Important perspective below

When I was a foreign grad & trainee I bought into idea: I just needed to work 3x as hard to get 1/2 as far

At mid-career, my health gave out trying for:
“be the person you needed when you were younger”
& to protect students

why can’t elite journals that define #EBM & #datadriven #healthcare
like @JAMA_current

focus on OUTCOMES
as experienced by PATIENTS

Why focus on LABELS certain physicians don’t like to hear?

Am a former regulator
we need quality #data by gatekeepers

#DavidCameron Govt being called #Greensill Govt within Whitehall as if no sleaze in this Govt. Think of #pandemic contracts & today we hear @MattHancock didn't disclose in 2019 that Topwood Ltd, then owned by his sister & mother won NHS contract to supply shredding services

We are now LIVE tweeting the conversation between @vestager and @SunjoyJ. Join us for an engaging discussion #Raisina2021
.@vestager: When it comes to #digitaltech, we have been timid as democracies and societies to say it should serve humans like any other tech. Regulation ensures that services are delivered in a way that can be trusted, and keeps the market open and contestable #Raisina2021
.@vestager: In democracies, the debate among politicians and citizens should be the real debate, not fragmented, manipulated debates that drive the world apart #Raisina2021

The team identified that recurring revenue is very important for economic sustainability, and created guidance around this: theodi.org/article/open-c…

In light of the Boston police Union leader child abuse, this is very plausible, even probable. I have 2x, on behalf of someone else, reported, via Title IX - the woman or gay man was not feeling safe enuf to report. Yes, there is blowback when one reports. But we can’t be silent.
I am a mandated reporter as a #pediatrician. I *must* report for my patients or face legal consequences. Am same for staff, students, trainees. But in #EmergencyMedicine who do I call if a child may be unsafe at home? Sometimes, cops. Are cops safe?

I have seen #mentalhealth and entire life paths destroyed by abusers preying on children like: This happened to too many people I know. I have seen institutions intimidate, mislabel, bury stories of the victims. (Some predators wait until 18th birthday.)

LOVE being faculty at @MIT this semester for a class on #dataanalytics & #datascience. I tend to PM my mentees, especially women and #blackexcellence to start to prepare questions to ask. Too often people stay silent. Speak up. Never be embarrassed to show #curiosity.
Listening right now to mid-semester progress reports from teams and am feeling like such a proud #datascience #BigData #bigdataanalytics momma. Bear cubs doing good (well AND good in world)

LOVE that this is a space within @MIT that focuses on #SDoH and #equity.
Literally right now, hearing about a study on #socialmedia chatter as a driver of vaccines hesitancy driven by #Twitter - start postulate "cause/effect" by an incident that happens within days after a vaccine - like ppl automatically assume a death is "caused" by vaccine

The field of #psychology has MANY problems. SO many levels of wrong:

1-clinicians designing torture
2-a strategy to exploit the lack of ethics by APA leadership to gain scope of practice
3-monetizing harm
4-validating minority distrust of #mentalhealth

nytimes.com/2015/05/01/us/…
The details are damning. It was clearly about expanding turf/scope of practice with a “deal with the devil” to bypass civilian regulations & go after DoD💰💰💰

There was not any commitment to human rights but manipulating words to craft unethical policy

journalofethics.ama-assn.org/article/profes…
There have been reputation repair attempts, to distance self from torture, however professional societies tend to fixate on gaining or protecting turf & scope of practice. They use patients for “stories” but in reality show little care about patients.

#Thread about #NIKE #adidas #China #Uiguri #transparency #geopolitics :

Companies such as H&M, Adidas and Nike no longer want to process cotton from Xinjiang because of forced labor allegations. Therefore, the Chinese media are now calling for a boycott of the brands.
According to estimates by the United Nations and human rights organizations, China is holding up to one million Muslim Uyghurs in Xinjiang.

Source:
nzz.ch/wirtschaft/hm-…
According to studies by the Center for Strategic and International Studies, the regime uses Uighur slave labor on a large scale in cotton production. China's government vehemently denies the allegations. Around 20% of the cotton produced worldwide comes from Xinjiang.

Good morning and Happy Sunday! We have updated our @fcpsnews Spending Tracker on the @DoBetterFCPS website. The difference between our tracker and the one put out by the School is that you can sort our by year, dollar amount, office department and vendor. dobetterfcps.com/fcps-spending
💰💰💰 FCPS SPENDING UPDATE: Would you like to hear a list of legal firms that were paid by the Office of the Superintendent this fiscal year? Let us begin! From the top, shall we? #transparency #accountability
Law Firm #1: @HuntonAK. At $1,088,042 this year alone and $10.7M since 2013, Hunton Andrews Kurth has always been the @FCPSSupt Office's go to law firm. However, an average expenditure of $400k per year jumped to several million per year as soon as Brabrand took over.

@DaveSharma handing out flowers on #IWD2021. Intentions may have been good but unfortunately the reaction to his tweet demonstrates that he is simply not in touch with #WentworthWomen and does not understand the seriousness of the issues #auspol

theguardian.com/world/2021/mar…
To many, this feels like a trivialising, belittling and tone-deaf response to a watershed moment for women in Australia. For #Wentworth voters it is a national embarrassment. #EnoughIsEnough
There’s no point having a “nice guy” representing #Wentworth. We need a representative who listens, understands and then acts. The issues currently facing Australia are serious. Women’s rights to be treated fairly, with equity, with respect, to be safe in their own homes #Justice

[Thread] #EquitableAccess to #COVID19 #vaccines

Brilliant webinar today by @MSF_access & @DNDi on @wto #TRIPSwaiver & implications for #Africa, with @SpringGombe, Mustaqeem De Gama, Yuan Qiong Hu, Moses Mulumba, Ahmed Ogwell @laktarr001 & @MoniqueWasunna

#NoCovidMonopolies 1/17 Image
In her introductory remarks @SpringGombe asks

➡️whether the African continent will be left behind again
➡️what it will take for a public interest focused response to the pandemic
➡️what new ways of knowledge management are required to avoid past mistakes

#NoCovidMonopolies 2/17
#TRIPSwaiver seeks to temporarily waive #patent rights over #COVID19 products to facilitate increased production & manufacturing worldwide.

Need to set framework now for responses to future #pandemics & drive reform of #globalhealth for public interest.

I found out that the person in charge of the job that I left (because of a toxic/ableist environment) shared the social media posts I made (about my resignation) with the team and said I was unprofessional.

This demonstrates a huge difference in how we operate. I believe in transparency & accountability. It’s how I’ve gained my reputation & community trust. My work belongs my communities. Plus, I was very diplomatic and held back in what I posted.

It’s frustrating because accountability & self-reflection are what that project needs. He goes after me instead of addressing the real problem & focusing on self-reflection (after losing two queer, disabled consultants who said the environment was too toxic)

Big congrats to @nonfungibles on releasing their 2020 Annual Non-Fungible Tokens Report! @NathalieBcht, @latelier & I thoroughly enjoyed partnering with them on it: bit.ly/2ZkRiS8.
Some key takeaways from the report & my personal observations a/t #NFTs. A long-ish 🧵👇:
MARKET SIZE: The NFT market had a historic 2020 - tripled in value, reaching $250m (in terms of value of all #Ethereum transactions on chain, so actual market size is even bigger). This is rapid growth for a space that’s just a few years old.
Market is still volatile & prone to speculation but more sophisticated use cases are emerging based on utility, community, competitive elements. All are prerequisites for a more mature market. For all the hype around crypto, it is #NFTs that offer some of the more promising uses.
