Please tell the analysts that the answer is yes.

We have always tried predicting the #future looking at past information and trends. This time it’s not going to be easy.
There is no past comparable to this event. Nothing like this has happened in our lifetime. When something similar happened 100 years back, the world was a lot different place.
In terms of #trends, things are changing so fast and it's such a short span (although it looks like an eternity that we have been locked inside our houses) of time, its difficult to find any trends to predict the future.

1/12 Inspired by @IDdocAdi’s flight experience and dedicated to my friends who are trying to plan a #safewedding, I decided to post how we planned a #sociallydistanced wedding in the midst of the #COVID19pandemic. A thread from a healthcare #epidemiologist 👩‍🔬👰
2/12 Our initial plan was to get married in Birmingham, AL, where my fiancé @jonathanbmeadow grew up, and where we met during my ID training at @UAB. We planned to rent the entire space of our favorite Birmingham restaurant #Ovenbird, and get @bourbonbrothers to perform live
3/12 June/July 2020: Alabama’s #COVID19 cases and rate of positivity kept increasing, and we were worried abt poor compliance with #masking. Grateful that #ovenbird decided to stay closed for safety. We thought about moving our wedding to @CityofDurhamNC.

Deloitte, 2017: "Operations will cease to be delivered by humans."

Deloitte: The #Future of Operations, Deloitte Global Impact Report, Nov 13 2017


#Covid19 is the conduit to the #4IR now in full motion. As people come to terms w/ what is being forced upon humanity, we will soon regret that we did not unite to oppose to draconian lockdowns/expanding surveillance that will serve to protect/insulate ruling classes from revolt.
#UBI (universal basic income) is a tool designed by the rich to stave off #Molotov cocktails - while at the same time enriching themselves even further. The ruling class knows full well what they are unleashing - but the citizenry does not.

Hello, Friends... With sadness, I'm writing to let you know that I've decided to cancel all my March shows. 😢 I'm at a high risk of getting seriously ill from #COVID19 because of my #disability & small lung capacity, so it seems foolish for me to say "the show must go on".

1/11 Black and white picture of Gaelynn playing her violin upright like a tiny cello. At the top of the page in green cursive letters:
Furthermore, I want to set a good example in my community to protect others who are elderly, #disabled or immunocompromised. I'm frustrated by the message that "only the old & the chronically ill" are at risk of death, because so many people I care about are in these groups! 2/11
I don't want at-risk people to be viewed as expendable or collateral damage. We all know & care about at least one at-risk person, so we should all be limiting our unnecessary social interactions to minimize suffering... Unfortunately, I think concerts fit this description.

terceiro banco europeu, o @DeutscheBank começa a demitir 18.000 funcionários [20% do total], faz contas pra economizar €17 BILHÕES até 2022 e investirá [os mesmos?] €17 BILHÕES em #TICs e #transformação #digital até 2022: o digital tá atrasado, e muito.
em muitos casos, e especialmente em organizações muito grandes e [por suposição] muito estáveis e seguras, as lideranças DEMORAM demais a REAGIR ao novo contexto competitivo e AINDA MAIS a antecipar o FUTURO. esse parece ser um caso típico onde, no fim, as #PESSOAS saem perdendo.
um #BANCO é #VIRTUAL em essência. sistemas processando #INFORMAÇÃO para outros sistemas. dependendo de quem você ouvir, algo em entre 30% [] e 50% [] de todos os postos de #TRABALHO do setor vão desaparecer nos próximos anos. radical.

1/ HEY CRYPTO LAWYERS--@AndreaTinianow analyzes #Wyoming's commercial law for #blockchain assets & wrote a definitive guide to it for blockchain lawyers. She also compares it to @uniformlaws proposed Supplemental Act & favors WY's approach. @ForbesCrypto…
2/ Best quote: "As the founding director of the #Delaware Blockchain Initiative, I cannot stay silent about a law (the @uniformlaws Supplemental Act) that would extinguish the power of #blockchain technology to clean up problems in capital markets." So much here--will post more

2/ bill, SF125, which is now law. I’m bringing attention to WY's response bc it addresses a debate that should be in the open, plus it should make clear #Wyoming is seriously willing to go to bat to attract #blockchain tech to the state AND defend a strong & basic principle—that
3/ laws should recognize property rights for INDIVIDUALS who own financial assets. We shouldn’t have to own them thru an intermediary in order to gain the best legal protections. The Task Force letter responded to letters dated Jan 29 & Feb 6 sent by the Uniform Law Commission to
