1/
Students in our universities are inundated with critical race theory. This is a marxist doctrine holding that America is a wicked and racist nation. That even young children are complicit in oppression, and that our society needs to be radically transformed.
2/
Critical race theory is being forced into our children’s schools, it’s being imposed into workplace trainings, and it's being deployed to rip apart friends, neighbours and families.

@CamillaTominey @FraserNelson @gordonrayner @charleshymas Not sure if you are aware but @beisgovuk guidance requires offices to apply 2m social distancing to be #Covid19UK secure (legal requirement). Offices cannot apply just 1 m social distancing
2m social distancing means that half the desks are unavailable hence maximum capacity becomes 50% in ac well designed open plan space of that available on 28th February 2020. In old badly designed buildings like you have in Whitehall you lose 70% of desk capacity
Lift capacity is also a barrier as the maximum capacity under #Covid19UK rules is 4 people in a lift at a time and lifts would readily have had 12-15 in them at peak times pre lockdown Hence very long queues at 2m if no staggered arrivals Exits cannot be delayed as all desks

When it comes to corporate #culture, do companies walk the talk?

Our @mitsmr paper finds no correlation between official #coreValues and employees' assessment of how well companies live those values

(Eees' assessment from 1.4 million @Glassdoor #Culture500 reviews)

1/
We studied 560 large, mainly US based companies.

82% publicized official corporate #values, and most companies had 3-7 values

We identified 62 distinct values listed by at least 1% of the companies and grouped similar ones (e.g., ethics, integrity, morality) together

2/
Diversity of values is striking. Most commonly cited value (integrity) listed by fewer than 2/3rds of companies. Long tail of different values

We question the value of frameworks that reduce all corporate cultures to a few universal values or a 2x2 matrix

These are the #stories of #math that we celebrate, amplify and make central to the idea of #maths as a #objective #neutral #culture-free subject. #Math can do no #harm, and the #logical “pure math” thinking of #Mathematicians is worthy of emulation. But... 1/x
2/x ... "What about pure mathematics and mathematicians who merely prove theorems? Is there any #ethical component comparable to what you find in other fields of #science?" - R. Hersh in Experiencing #Mathematics
3/x One point of view: "there's no need for #mathematicians to have a code of #ethics, because what we do matters so little that we can do whatever we like."

Thread: For a good couple of years now, I have heard @makemytrip stories through #youtube videos, have admired the progress, and got inspired. Today had a privilege to listen to #MakeMyTrip Founder @DeepKalra at @headspin_io #Automation #Hackathon wrap. (1/N)
Trying to list down a few things which I could capture from all the wisdom which was flowing and ones which I will probably remember for a long time.

1. People (#customer) have to come back for a reason. Make sure to give them that. (2/N)
2. Sales were saying go back to the #Corporate job but the heart was saying "Too Early to Give up".

3. Customer Retention is the most important thing.

4. On #UX: I (Customer) am going to give you 5 minutes of my life to you. You have that much time to grab the eyeballs. (3/N)

[THREAD] The emergency law passed in #Hungary is another step in #Orban’s plan to get rid of #democracy and #RuleofLaw. Here are 5 things the #EU could do to help Hungarians restore their democracy. Tools are there, just not being used.
/1
1 - Use the stick. #Orban’s emergency law violates EU rules in at least two ways, which could allow the @EU_Commission to open infringements and bring #Hungary before the #ECJ.
/2
The threat of imprisonment will dissuade media outlets, journalists and activists from working in and on #Hungary. That violates EU rules on freedom of establishment and freedom to provide services, as well as fundamental rights – incl. freedom of expression and information.

Wow!! One of the most outstanding books I’ve ever read.

Sand Talk: How #IndigenousThinking can save the World

A great recommendation for these days!!

Thanks Tyson Yunkaporta. Your book is a gem to be discovered: #wisdom #values

textpublishing.com.au/books/sand-talk
A few years ago, I wrote a post about the #philosophy of Good Living or Living Well from Indigenous People
academia.edu/6528305/_Good_…

I talked about #biomimicry, learning from Nature with humility, and then we could also learn from the wisdom of indigenous people
I've decided to start a month-long project where I'll tweet a “wise” tip about "Sand Talk" every day during April. 30/30

#WiseBoomerang #1 This will be the 1st one.
It's about #humility the antonymous of #hubris. #Communication #DialogicalEthics #Connectedness

*Mental health thread*

At least 1 in 4 of us are suffering with mental health illnesses.

We are all human and we do not know what trouble the human beside us is facing.

🙏 CHOOSE to listen, support, be kind & fair.

Your hello and smile may be what gives someone strength.
The thing about mental health is that it can seriously affect how we see things, how we perceive ourselves and others around us.

Negative thoughts of failure or self-criticism or loss of confidence being wrongly reinforced by how others treat us can affect how we feel.
Eventually it can all become overwhelming.

One can feel that they can no longer cope.

Choose not to be the person who takes away someone’s sense of security, self belief, sense of achievement or confidence.

*Happiness thread"

Happiness is a range of feelings from positive emotions to great joy.

Happiness changes the way we see ourselves and situations. Our happiness affects how we react in situations and interact with others.

#Happiness is a choice.

#Happiness is infectious

😀
Researchers have found that happiness supports: a stronger immune system, stronger resilience in the face of stress, a stronger heart and less risk of cardiovascular disease, alongside quicker recovery times when overcoming illness or surgery
Happiness maximises our ability to look after ourselves. Happiness supports more exercise, better socializing, healthy eating, good sleep hygiene.

#happiness is a beautiful thing 😀👍🖐️

Parental involvement in child's learning journey is uncommon in #Pakistan. As the Chairperson of Parents Council 2016of @Gemsfirstpoint I, my team & school worked together 4 the wellbeing of our children. #antibullying policy,core values,parental coffee mornings to name a few...
There is no concept of a Parent Council here. All the work is to be done by the school. Schools don't share the wellbeing and progress of the child with the parents. PTM is the only way to find out. Neither the school nor the parents are interested in forming an alliance...
Parents don't know if their child is suffering from depression, is being bullied, or is under stress. Peer Pressure exists. All we care is the grades. Same is with the school. We may find a career councillor but not a councillor in schools who is actively involved with the kids.

The global Multidimensional #Poverty Index (MPI) was developed for @UNDP flagship Human Development Report in 2010. It calculates ‘multidimensional poverty’ using 10 indicators that fall under 3 dimensions of poverty – #health, #education and standard of living. Image
It compares the multidimensional poverty of 101 countries and 5.7 billion people, and monitors change over time. This 2019 report says that while #poverty is often defined by #income, it can also be defined in terms of the deprivations people face in their daily lives.
The report says that 1.3 billion people worldwide are poor based on values arrived at using the MPI. Of these 1.3 billion people, more than 2/3rds – 886 million people – live in middle-income countries, where the per capita gross national income is btw US$ 1,006 & US$ 12,235.

1/ Look what arrived by mail today. Watch for a ritual burning at the end of this thread.

A thread tweeting quotes from "The Power of a Whisper" (TPOAW), by unrepentant sexual predator, bully, and con-man Bill Hybels, who is still being protected by @GLNsummit & @WillowCreekCC
@GLNsummit @WillowCreekCC 2/ Dedication Page: "To @DickDeVos & Betsy, & Ron & Sharon VanderPol--Only on the other side will the four of you know how much your friendship & support have meant to the Hybels family & to the global Willow family"

~Bill Hybels, "The Power of a Whisper", 2010
3/ I note that @glnsummit board chairman billionaire Dick Devos, to whom Bill dedicated this book, has overseen Global Leadership Network's ongoing cover-up of Bill Hybels' sexual crimes since 2014.

There was a super insightful fireside chat with @vkhosla and @NandanNilekani, moderated by @sharads, yesterday in Bangalore. My notes. Long thread.
@vkhosla: I have this fear that you can grow old when you retire, not retire when you grow old. So I hope I never retire. As long as you have interesting problems to work on, there's nothing more exciting to do than work on that.
