Y'all I've been teaching a class on cyborg tech for 10 years and this is the first year, EVER, that my students are all, "fuck smart homes, fuck smart devices, don't embed jack shit in my brain" because surveillance and government and Silicon Valley.

.@UniversitiesUK CEO @AlistairJarvis has a piece about the #USS dispute in today's Times. In the thread below, I zero in on a false claim he advances, and on which much rides. @AlistairJarvis -- I hope you will engage w/ us in the comments below. Link: https://t.co/gm1yQujLBa

In a significant and welcome development, LSE has just released the following statement re #USS: "We would urge UUK to work with UCU to revert to the earlier valuation of the pension scheme set out in September 2017 by USS."

Insisteixo: Equivocar-se d'enemic és la manera més segura de perdre la guerra. Si llegíssim més Clausewitz, potser no faríem tan sovint el préssec. I 3 coses:
No és hora de linxaments.
No s'ha acabat res, no us equivoqueu.
I sisplau bandegeu el pessimisme: és l'antipolítica.

The ball is in the court of @UniversitiesUK employers. Others among the 42% can join with Unis of Oxford & Bristol in reconsidering their response & wholeheartedly embracing Sept level of risk. It is in THEIR power to shift the dial significantly enough. https://t.co/EpsZixtC8h

Repugnància absoluta per l'Estat espanyol, el seu govern corrupte i els partits còmplices que ens han declarat la guerra, retenint 4 homes justos q porten mesos segrestats i empresonant ara 5 dels nostres representants electes. No callarem, no ens quedarem quiets. Que es preparin

.@AlistairJarvis you have consistently failed, in both today's Times and in previous @UniversitiesUK releases, to acknowledge the role of employer choices regarding risk in creating this mess. It is now time to come clean to members about this. 6/

Re the linked offer, I'm sceptical regarding the significance of the following: "This will require the status quo both in terms of contributions into USS and current pension benefits, until at least April 2019." 1/https://t.co/S2xu4Hu38j

Rather than a self-appointed panel 'independent' experts, @UniversitiesUK & @AlistairJarvis should simply exercise greater transparency. Don't stamp so many of your and your actuary's papers 'confidential' & refuse to share them with your employees. 1/https://t.co/hYodRcmA6d

Is “USS is being managed under the assumption that sponsoring employers could go bankrupt at any time”? NO! That's a MYTH which has attained the status of a zombie idea. In the thread below, I attempt to slay this zombie once and for all. 1/

To university staff who did not strike. When you think about your future, and your greater security in retirement, think of your colleagues who stood on picket lines in rain & in snow to protect your futures.#USSstrikes #UCUstrike #WeAreTheUniversity #NoCapitulation #USSstrike

An excellent statement on #USS from Queen's College, Oxford. Note that Queens went against the University line in September by accepting the level of risk USS proposed then, rather than calling for a lower level. So it is not johnny-come-lately. https://t.co/Y9VuVbJ3ws
