Twitter Web Client : A thread which I didn't want to write.
I don't want this disastrous Toy government either.
I don't have an agenda, though I do have a stake.
I'm a British Jew and antisemitism affects me and my family/friends deeply.
If you don't want to listen, then that's up to you. twitter.com/AdamWagner1/st…

Twitter Web Client : To add to my previous tweet with regard to #WhyIDidntReport and the need for #criminology #law #policing folk to pay attention. There is an equally important twitter conversation going on relating to what happened for some when they had reported. See #afterireported

Twitter Lite : Convicted on evidence as flimsy as the prison issue paper that he painted on Valentino Dixon walked free after 27 years falsely incarcerated for a crime he did not commit, thanks to a golf magazine, its writers and university students who worked his case. edition.cnn.com/videos/us/2018…

Twitter Lite : There's lots of ways to define "metabolically healthy" and measure it, so various studies find different numbers. That's why we included that huge range. Much more important than the specific figure, though, is that it's actually irrelevant (1/n) twitter.com/adriancharles/…

Twitter Lite : What if the biggest health risk for overweight people is not their weight but the shame and stigma society and the medical industry imposes on them? That’s the bracing thesis of this extraordinary piece by Michael Hobbes: highline.huffingtonpost.com/articles/en/ev…

Twitter Lite : This stuff makes me fume

If you are deriving *any* benefit from hiring an “intern”, you pay them. Simple. Don’t pretend that offering 3 months’ unpaid work is doing them a favour. You’re just cutting off access to the legal profession for those who can’t afford to work for free. twitter.com/legalcheek/sta…

Twitter Lite : Great story by ProPublica and STAT on how black people are underrepresented in clinical trials and thus miss out on new cancer drugs propublica.org/article/black-…

Twitter Lite : Big end of life law, ethics, policy, and practice news. Get your abstracts in for #ICEL3. twitter.com/HealthLawQUT/s…

Twitter Web Client : It really is an absolute disgrace that every last university doesn’t pay the living wage. They are not poor institutions, they bang on about their reputations all the time, and they have a fair chunk of staff doing social justice research. Shaming. twitter.com/citizensuk/sta…

Twitter Web Client : Philosophy has the lowest proportion of female academics across all non-STEM subjects in UK higher education. The Philosopher Queens is so much more than a book. Its part of a wider movement to encourage and support women in philosophy. Join us 💖➡️ unbound.com/books/philosop…

Twitter Web Client : I wrote a thing (that was far more research than I imagined!) about the disappearance of value ranges in the supermarket, what might be driving them, and where you can find them hiding in plain sight ... #notspon #notanad #justabudgetnerd twitter.com/BootstrapCook/…

Twitter Web Client : Are you a fan of trusts and estates? {crowd goes wild} Well, here is a call for papers for the new Trusts and Estates collaborative research network at the 2019 Law and Society Conference lawprofessors.typepad.com/trusts_estates…

Twitter Lite : Nearly every woman I know has been sexually assaulted at some point in her life, including me. I only know a handful of people who reported it, much less went public with it, for all of the reasons that Christine Ford was afraid to. Staying quiet is the norm, not the exception.

Twitter Lite : Canada needs a far more comprehensive approach to identifying and correcting wrongful convictions - and the system needs much more adequate funding. Exhibit A: thestar.com/news/investiga…

Twitter Lite : People risk unjust prison sentences due to lack of court healthcare trib.al/IitwCHE
