When our kids are all grown up, we hope one day they will tell their own children about the beautiful woodland in their neighbourhood and how the community came together to save it #WestbrookWoodland #villagegreen @WeLoveBath @MoreTreesBANES @waspschool @WestonLitter THREAD Image
The woods are a magical place, with a brook running through it. The dappled sunlight shines through the trees and glints off the clear water @Uhperry #WestbrookWoodland #Bath Image
Kids would paddle in the brook and some would use rope-swings to bravely cross it. Some kids were so daring they would jump straight across, taking a deep breath before they leapt from one bank to the other. @BathPlayProject #WestbrookWoodland Image

@Siobhan_Baillie summary of letter to you about #examshambles

What is your response, given your work championing further education, to the entirely foreseeable shambles in awarding exam grades this year and the fall out from the decisions and U Turn?

I assume you must feel that your focus on education has been dealt a body blow by The Secretary Of State For Education @GavinWilliamson. More importantly the many young people affected, have been devastated and the impact will last many years.

To hear him on @BBCr4today say "This is something none of us expected to see and none of us wanted to see"... well I agree with the second part about what was 'not' wanted but the shambles was entirely predictable especially after what happened in Scotland.

Leaked trade agreement chain of events
Nov '17

"U.S. considers their food safety system GOLD standard"
“U.S. to share their public lines on chlorine-washed chicken to help inform the (UK) media narrative around the issue.”

'Do a PR job on it'
UK ‘emphasised they were in listening mode’

Pg 42 U.S. coaches UK away from a secondary process of protection – cites EU parliament overruling use of Glyphosate as an example why a 2nd process ‘DOESN’T’ work.

(getting in the way)
#Food #Health #ESG

Pg 42 ‘Positive applications’ had also been agreed’ – ‘Use of lactic acid on Beef’ – US law insists on a ‘chemical wash to reduce pathogens’

That's chemically washing your beef.

You might ask about food standards pre that!

Take risks.

Be creative.

If you are not being criticized you may not be pushing enough boundaries or really challenging the status quo.

The world needs those who maintain and stay neatly within boxes too.

As well as those who draw new boxes or erase the lines entirely. Image
At this time when everyone is focused on social justice and racial equity, however, it is important to commit to speak certain truths

not be deterred by the labels that get applied to those who say out loud the uncomfortable things others may quietly observe
Some truths, when spoken, come with significant sacrifices and consequences

It’s why we need more people expressing their truths and speaking up - yes, it gets loud, messy, chaotic, uncontrolled

But staying silent and “within bounds” is dangerous…

2. Wanted to come to this #webinar as I don't know much about Apter & @robertsrobson does

Rob shared a sneak peak on reversal theory & it made sense

I try to capture reflections that resonate for me when I go to these

Here goes @WorldofGoodBook & Rob talked about the why?
3. Gethin @hellobenefex knows his stats & studies &
@robertsrobson 'if we think of performance as potenial - interference then, not caring is interference we don't need in the workplace' sic

Felt practical, accessible - 'emotions are signals, info on what's going on' 😊🤔

THREAD: I've been inundated in the past week by calls/msgs from Black & racialized educators (at all levels) struggling with what's going on- AGAIN. This isn't new; many of us never had the option to "not understand", "not know", to "sign off", "walk away", "do it btw 9-4" #ABR
If U are a non-Black or NOT #criticallyconscious Ed leader (that includes IBPOC folk)-U must understand that UR #silence in staff meetings is literally suffocating ppl. ur unwillingness to address what is happening to ur staff/communities is #racism #WeCantBreatheAGAIN
Ive heard a list of things happening all over the province
1) not addressing it and being completely silent
2) not addressing it bc they dont know what to do
3) asking Black & racialized folk to lead PD for staff but then not stepping in when there are racist responses

I've been having the heartbreaking conversation with so many Black people who are dreading tomorrow and the Zoom calls or the ”How are you?” -

Your Black leaders and employees are not OK.

It's triggering to ask ”How are you”
I hope CEO’s & Executive Sponsors for Black ERG’s and other ERG’s

Head of Diversity and Inclusion have reached out and connected with your Black ERG leaders and your Black employees.

At the very least ensure all mandatory meetings have a ”No Video Requirement” please
The #Emotionaltax Black employees are going through right now is through the roof.

Many I've spoken to are feeling rage, fear, anger, resignation, exhaustion, defeat and more.

Be uncomfortable, put #Blacklives BEFORE your feelings @RachelCargle

It's the HUMAN thing to do.

Our new book 🚀🐌✊🏾 #Degrowth in Movement(s): Exploring pathways for transformtion

A dictionary of social movements and alternatives for a future beyond economic growth, capitalism, and domination. 📘Published @Zer0Books & with CC licence. Whats it about, whos in it? 👉🏽THREAD 1/
There have been many books on the concepts of alternative economies, on the #GreenNewDeal, a #wellbeing economy, #postcapitalism or #degrowth. But what about the practices?

How can the transformation of society be conceptualized? And how can we built alliances for this? 2/
Degrowth is not just a new term for an ongoing discussion on alternatives or a thriving academic research paradigm.

Its also an emerging social movement that overlaps considerably with other social movements – from #BasicIncome to #commons #unions #cooperatives #Feminism /3

A suggestion on how we can preserve mental & emotional wellbeing and help people at the same time:

Shift from "why" thinking ➡️ "what" & "how"
In other words, get task-oriented!

What do I mean? A small 🧵on how community service can also be a powerful tool for wellbeing.
I was talking to a colleague today about the mental and emotional toll that #COVID19 has taken on everyone's lives.

I've posted about how we need to find those rays of light and silver linings whenever and wherever we can, to help counteract all the darkness.
Part of that involves what I call creating the light.

When all we see around us is darkness, and it's hard to see the silver linings, can we actually create some light ourselves?

I believe we can, and in doing so, provide some much needed service to those in need.

#Caregiving can have a positive impact on our lives - helping us to feel valued as part of a care team, closer to those in our care. When we #care, we can have an improved sense of #purpose & even extend our life expectancy 2/11

Read sad story last night about Dr. Bucci, 50 year old Phychology & Brain Sciences Dept. Chairman, at Dartmouth that committed #Suicide 11 months after a lawsuit was filed by graduate #students in his department. He
2/ was NOT accused of sexual misconduct, but named in the suit for knowing about the professors’ inappropriate behavior as the Chair.I share many of the same feelings he expressed to friends and colleagues in his emails before he took his own life like: the case was deeply

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.

A Christmas well-being thread.
Today I got shouted at by both Judge & prosecutor.

In fairness, what they were asking was reasonable from their perspectives. The problem was, to answer, or at least in the way they’d have liked, could have been to the detriment of my client.

So acting in clients best interests, I was unable to help court/pros & received said shouting.

Of itself, this is no big deal. Although not a common occurrence, being shouted at when trying to protect clients interests, is also not uncommon. we have thick skin after all.

But then I ponder.

Should it be part of the job to receive a shouting.

Had my prosecutor stood back and thought, he would have realised I couldn’t answer and why not. The judge was once at the bar and must have experienced similar issues in practise...
