Lets talk about the macroeconomic impact of #COVID19 in the short-medium term. The pandemic continues to have broad based devastating effects, crippling global economic activity. Fiscal & monetary policy is loose, to "ease" the virus' blow. What of a #Vaccine? Will you take It?
The global economic recovery hinges on the flattening both the #COVID19 infection curve and the economic recession curve. Negative output gaps imply activity below potential. The expectation, is for a vaccine to help towards herd immunity, thus flattening the infection curve...
It is expected that if a #Vaccine is made widely available & the uptake significant, economic activity will pick up & supply chains resuscitated. This will help flatten the recession curve. Ergo, all appears to rest on the production of a vaccine. But again, will you take it?

The DNC asks progressives for "unity" to defeat Donald Trump. Low voter turnout could ensure a second Trump term and GOP control of the Senate.

If Democrats are serious about a Biden "win" and Senate takeover, there's a simple solution . . . .

(thread below)

Two companion Medicare For All bills are pending in the House and Senate, each with a long list of co-sponsors.

Medicare For All (HR1384) easily can pass in the House today.……

At a time when a growing number of working people are losing their employer-provided insurance and suffering under the burden of healthcare debt, passing Medicare For All, with strong vocal support from Joe Biden, would pressure the Senate to act.

The Disability & Health team met today to remember our dear friend & colleague Allison Milner who we lost one year ago today.

We reflected on what 'Allison would say in #COVID19'

Please join us in sharing your thoughts on #WhatAllisonWouldSay…

She cared about workers so some thoughts from me:

Precarious work is killing us. I've said it for years but #COVID19 proves it, yet again

Work has been harming the precariously employed for years - suicide, chronic disease - now it's harming all of us

Many of the workers doing the heavy lifting are the most precariously, low paid of them all - #agedcare workers, #disability support workers, cleaners, those working in supermarket shelve stackers etc.

Its time we valued what they did with decent pay and conditions

𝗔𝗿𝗲 𝗬𝗼𝘂 𝗥𝗲𝗮𝗱𝘆 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝗬𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗚𝗶𝗳𝘁? | A few months ago, I wanted to give a gift to an artisan. I'd followed him for years and was impressed by his work ethic and attitude. I believed he should be rewarded. #Thread Image
What I had in mind was funding an investment plan that would guarantee him an annual stipend for years. With that, he could pursue career options that weren't tied to the immediate need for survival.
However, to access the gift, he needed a BVN, bank account and the ability to manage his online investment portal himself.

To all the new #graduate students starting their #PhD or the ones already in it. It's true that the #journey of a PhD is like #life packed into a few years. You must also understand that it is not your entire life either! Life goes on despite how this journey goes or ends! Thread
I made this #infographic to represent my journey in #gradschool at @UMassChemEng @UMassAmherst. When you're in the thick of things, It will be hard to see the light at the end. Everyone around you will keep telling you that but most of the times it will seem #impossible!
Year 3, 4, and 5, I went through multiple cycles of #depression. I cannot put a finger on anything specific of why that happened. What I realized though, is that every time I came out of that cycle, I found enormous amounts of hidden #energy and #strength.

1-We have been talking about #Mantras and their place in the #Vedic #Tradition.

Today, let’s dwell on the #Shakti Mantras – quite perhaps the most #esoteric and #Powerful entities in their own right. (1/19)

2-A word of caution here.

Shakti Mantras are like an Atomic Bomb

They are extremely powerful

..and should be practiced with due consideration, initiation and guidance by your #Guru and under your full #Intuition. (2/19)

@ijyotish @shashankupadhy_

3-Fundamentally, Shakti Mantras are extremely powerful, mono or single syllabled mantras.

In the higher Yogic practices they have a special usage. (3/19)

#My_Twitter_Rule 20/1
Our youth in a rush to create following on digital platforms. It is good start, but do they know what next. Having big following is just tool, unless one knew what to do with it, interest will die down after a while. Please read & learn who we (Muslims) are?
#My_Twitter_Rule 20/2
But read what? How to build #knowledge. #Information & Knowledge are two different things. Use Authentic sources, Introspection, Deliberation & Exchanges brings #Wisdom to the discourse.
Starting point is always #Quran! Read once translation & commentary....
#My_Twitter_Rule 20/3
Quran is a biggest gift of Allah, a guide, a constitution & a Hidaya. THAWAB is not its primary purpose!
Prophet SAW biography. He is a leader, head of state, a commander, peace maker, Mercy to mankind, role model (husband, father neighbor an orphan himself)

A really insane scheme by a former Drug Enforcement Administration spokesman here:…
“...repeatedly threatened anyone who questioned his legitimacy with revocation of their security clearance and criminal prosecution if they ‘leaked' or continued to look into the supposedly classified information.”…
Here he is when he was with ICE in 2004.

What are the biggest cover-your-ass, #CYA moves at #work? --- >
Cover your ass moves (“CYA”) are everywhere at work. While I firmly believe there are great managers and leaders all over the world, the fact of the matter remains that most people are not actually good at anything managerial —
by some estimates, 82 percent of managers end up being the wrong hire.

1/ Shopify yesterday announced going permanently remote, for most if not all employees. Twitter has made similar claims. Google, Apple, FB also remote for 2020. I’m still struggling to understand why remote is more efficient in long run. #remote #work #startups #opportunities
2/ I understand that remote could supplement the traditional in-office work. But why should remote be the new default? In what scenarios is remote more efficient? For what job roles has remote proven to be more efficient? What has been the key drivers for trying remote in past?
3/ I can’t imagine remote meetings being more efficient than present in person meetings for collaboration and comm. Whatever was happening digitally or over voice in-office will of course have no impact going remote. But how will remote zoom meetings be more efficient than F2F?
