Yesterday I discovered a wallet vulnerability of one of the new L1 blockchains that allow stealing wallet keys and reusing them on another machine. I sent a report to the official security@ email at night. I'm still waiting for any reply ~15 hours later. That's sucks.
The funny thing is I read @moxie's blog post about his first impressions of web3 the day before. «One of the surprising things to me about web3, despite being built on “crypto,” is how little cryptography seems to be involved!», Moxie writes.
I totally agree with that statement. I'd just extend to "how little security seems to be involved in many web3 projects". The vulnerability I've recently discovered it's not about cryptography, it's about pretty usual web 2.0 security stuff.

Hi #infosec folks, I did promise a #TCC #vulnerability for #macOS blogpost. So, here we are, introducing "Powerdir":

I wanted to add a meme to the blogpost but apparently you simply can't do that...
Apparently @_r3ggi found very similar issues in parallel to my findings, it's interesting to see the different approaches to TCC bypass bughunting.

This week we will be talking all about #vulnerability. A critical concept in disaster studies but one that has generally been used in a limited way!
I think a good place to start this conversation is with the Pressure and Release (PAR) model, from a book most of you probably know, 'At Risk.' This model charts 'the progression of vulnerability' and underpins the vulnerability paradigm that many disaster scholars draw upon. Image
The paradigm has been effective in framing disasters as socially constructed, and locating the creation of risk in political and economic processes that are unjust, privileging some and oppressing others.

The findings show an absence of a systematic and coordinated plot to take over these schools and an absence of any concerted and deliberate plot to promote radicalisation and violent extremism of Muslim children in these schools or elsewhere

#TrojanHorse

tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.108…
language used to talk about the issues of “radicalisation” & “extremism” is itself the subject of considerable debate (Kundnani 2012; Lynch 2013). There is also a difficulty in understanding fully these issues cos there is a lack of an objective or universally accepted definition
As soon as the media took hold of the allegations, there was huge publicity about the promotion of extremism, radicalisation & terrorism.
At the time, the press also expressed many irrational anxieties about these Muslim majority schools (Arthur 2015). Even though, from the

Why do strong Earthquakes take place in Haiti? Does it have something to do with Plate Tectonics?
What are the factors that put Haiti at risk?
Learn more in this thread on today’s #GeoAgenda with our collab w/@Daniela_A_Gallo ! 1/n
A magnitude 7.2 (M 7.2) #earthquake struck #Haiti on August 14- west of the capital city, #PortAuPrince, and 50km west of the magnitude 7.0 devastating EQ that took place in 2010 which killed ~100,000 people and devastated the Island. 2/n
Both EQ;s were produced in the #EnriquilloPlantain fault zone, a complex boundary between two #tectonicplates. To the north there is another tectonic boundary, and this makes the Hispaniola island to be sandwiched in between a complex geological terrain 3/n

As federal action on climate change is deadlocked, again, states have moved ahead.

Still, major obstruction efforts slow, stop, or even reverse progress.

Just up @ERSS: who’s working to slow #climate legislation in MA? w/lessons for other states /1

First, states are remarkable venues for social science of #climate struggles: 50 contexts, with different dependencies on #fossilfuel extraction, #vulnerability, and cultural/political context. Industries and activists battle on 50 different stages with different rules. (RPSs)/3

New paper out @Climate_Policy on how #gender is considered in climate #adaptation planning. bit.ly/India-gender

We (@nityarao63 @divya_s_s) started with a question "does 'mainstreaming' gender everywhere mean gender is nowhere?" @iihsin @developmentuea
We examined 28 sub-national climate action plans in India (the State Action Plans on Climate Change or #SAPCCs) and asked:

1⃣ How is gendered vulnerability framed and reported?
2⃣ What policy approaches are used to build local adaptive capacities?
We draw on gender & intersectionality in adaptation scholarship @N_Kabeer @MargaretAlston @MaryCTHall @Farhana_H2O @edwardrcarr @nightingalea @AroraJonsson and others to show how different framings to recognize gendered vulnerability leads to different policy approaches. Image

@ipcc_ch reports that b/w 1971 & 2010, oceans absorbed over 90% of the heat gained by the planet due to #globalwarming. This led to #sealevel rise and has also resulted in higher frequency & intensity of #cyclones worldwide. #ClimateChange #MumbaiMustPrepare @mumbaismagic
Indian Ocean has also warmed but what is worrying is the higher rate of #warming in comparison to other global ocean basins. Data shows that Indian Ocean’s rapid basin-wide warming of ~1degC over the last 60 yrs exceeds that of the global average of ~0.7 degC. #MumbaiMustPrepare
Arabian Sea & Bay of Bengal have also seen consistent warming in past decades. The trend in rise in sea surface temperature for BoB has been 0.16C/decade & 0.18C/decade for AS. Arabian Sea indeed has been warming quite rapidly and impacts are for us to see. #MumbaiMustPrepare

The more comfortable you feel in an apartment, the more likely it is that you will not lock the bathroom door when bathing. You can't be more vulnerable than being in the bathroom stark naked, taking a bath and not caring if someone opens the door. #Vulnerability
Why? Because you trust that those around you understand your need for privacy, your need to be vulnerable and your need not be afraid. Breaking the confidence of those who trust you to keep their secrets secret is equivalent of bursting in on someone while bathing. #Vulnerability
Unfortunately, many have experienced this in one form or another and it's the reason they're always on guard, refusing to trust anyone

#Vulnerability as a word can be very negative. You only need to take a look at the dictionary to see what it says. Vulnerability as defined is..

The authors use a case scenario to demonstrate the tension between a learner who embodies a #growthmindset by demonstrating #vulnerability, which in turn negatively influences her career development.

..:: thread ::.. Let’s work off the assumption that we are in fact, not robots.
Like it or not, as humans we all have emotions; we just may emote in different ways. [spoiler alert, this is okay and actually great]
Some people gush out all their feelings, singing the praises of those they love, while others notice ways to improve the lives of others and perform acts of service.
Others will give sentimental tokens of their affection, etc.

Those of us who affirmed our own agency and power by learning from and with our moms. My mom’s stories are her own but she and I together have unpacked many cultural myths to learn better self compassion, willingness to identify racism, less perfectionism.
💪🏽💪🏻💪🏿 @DrvanTilburg
This is a type of trauma many WOC/POC experience. My mom’s hair is extremely thick, textured. I recall her being very fixated on making sure her own hair & our hair was always incredibly neat.

More recently I’ve come to understand this matches an experience of having black hair.
The so-called “model minority “is taught to align with white culture, to suppress oneself in order to layer under & serve white supremacy.

I have worked to remove internalized racism, colorism, self hate & learned from #blackexcellence on:

Thrilled to announce our new paper by Victoria Junquera and Adrienne Grêt-Regamey, "Assessing livelihood vulnerability using a Bayesian network: a case study in northern #Laos”, is now out in @ecologyandsociety1 ecologyandsociety.org/vol25/iss4/art… #openaccess #WomenInSTEM. Short thread👇
This work analyzes the effect of #cashcrop production on livelihood #vulnerability, which we define in terms of the probability distribution of household income.
We use a #Bayesian network to estimate the probability distribution of household income, conditional on biophysical (e.g., yield), household (e.g., agricultural land), and commodity price variables.

I now know why my colleague mentioned @Rufusmay to me.

I love the way he proposes telling stories, and being creative, playful and vulnerable as a way of bringing our whole selves to our work.

"Until you or a relative experience it, it's another world [...] If you're sectioned you lose your rights, and things get done to you...

...I think it really changed my life."

On the influence of experiencing involuntary treatment on his career.

"When I managed to return to education I thought, "I want to make a difference" and go back into the #mentalhealth system and promote a more listening approach...

...I didn't feel I'd been listened to."
