Why have they chopped down mature shade trees for this so-called beautification project? It looks like Mr. T went on another tree-demolition rampage. Replacing shade trees with ornamentals is only part of this destruction project.
Seems they’ve also forgotten #ADA accessibility
laws. These bump out gathering spaces they’re planning benefits outdoor dining options for restaurants, but makes sidewalk navigation for pedestrians and mobility-impaired impossible.

I hate shopping in Evanston because I always have to hike to find parking.
Not so bad on sunny days but in pouring rain or snow I’ll go shop where I can park within a few spaces of the shop. Taking away easy parking from local shops and we may as well use Amazon. What’s their motivation, anyway? Is this a case of follow the money?

Hullo, what have we here @MoHFW_INDIA ?!

Your recently released Clinical Establishments guidelines 2019 indicate that 'mentally disabled' will need a guardian for informed consent!

First off why are you equating disabled people with minors?

#Capacity Appendix 9 EXTRACT <br />
INFORMED CONSENT or CONSENT GUIDELINES<br />
The informed consent shall at the least contain the following information in an understandable language and format (desirably which a lay person can easily understand) <br />

@MoHFW_INDIA @EqualsCPSJ @RajivSpeaks @Deepak_TMN @drsitu @netshrink @vjayakumar @amritbakhshy @val_resh @SmithaSadasiva5 Next - bad enough we've had to suffer conflation of 'unsound mind' with mental illness, now we have a sweeping 'mental disability' which means ... what exactly?
@MoHFW_INDIA @EqualsCPSJ @RajivSpeaks @Deepak_TMN @drsitu @netshrink @vjayakumar @amritbakhshy @val_resh @SmithaSadasiva5 If you cannot assume capacity for all, suspect capacity for all. Stop singling out disabled people for guardian consent.
Embrace diversity in communication and supported decision making.
No mention of advance directives?

A Fierce Rant About

SERVICE ANIMALS IN AMERICA

from @IvanThrone

The Dark Triad Man

I'm going to talk about handlers and assholes, and how to tell the difference when someone claims their four-legged creature is a #ServiceDog.

Ready for fire, people?

/1
The very first thing we're going to do is define #ServiceDog.

There's only ONE definition that matters in America:

"Service animals are defined as dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities."

ada.gov/service_animal…

NOW...

/2
Repeat after me, children:

IF IT IS NOT A DOG

IT IS NOT A SERVICE ANIMAL.

This is not Complicated:

If it is a Pig, a Duck, a Peacock, a Snake, a Bird, a Fish, or bloody God damn Hamster, it is...

NOT A SERVICE ANIMAL

Get the hell off my plane!

#THREAD: We've been hearing from fed prisoners & families about halfway houses being closed & people losing valuable re-entry time/services
2) So last week we asked all our federal #incarnated members what they were hearing and experiencing firsthand. #HWH
