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.— Robin Z. (@firepile) March 19, 2018

.@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.

昔から、彗星や新星が発見されたとき、世界中の天文学者にしらせるための同報電報として「天文電報」というのがあるんですが、3月20日に南アメリカのケープタウン大学のダンスビー先生から「ものすごく明るい星を見つけた」という電報があったんですね。https://t.co/RCPyuoHYlT— ytb (@ytb_at_twt) March 21, 2018

天文電報中央局は、事態をネタ化して収拾すべく、ダンビー先生を表彰しました— ytb (@ytb_at_twt) March 21, 2018

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."— Michael Otsuka (@MikeOtsuka) March 23, 2018

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:— xavier antich 🎗 (@XavierAntich) March 23, 2018
No és hora de linxaments.
No s'ha acabat res, no us equivoqueu.
I sisplau bandegeu el pessimisme: és l'antipolítica.
Some comments on @AlistairJarvis's response to @AtheneDonald's letter. See embedded tweet for Jarvis's response. See my comments in the thread below. https://t.co/sGinbtQlhQ— Michael Otsuka (@MikeOtsuka) March 19, 2018
下手をするとダンスビー先生の技術的力量に関するシリアスな問題に発展しかねなかった状況をさっさと転換し、世界中の天文学者がダンスビー先生に対し「なんてオイシイ奴」視するようになったので、てんもんでんぽう中央局の手腕は褒めても褒めすぎることはないでしょう。— ytb (@ytb_at_twt) March 21, 2018
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— Michael Otsuka (@MikeOtsuka) March 19, 2018
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— xavier antich 🎗 (@XavierAntich) March 23, 2018
.@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/— Michael Otsuka (@MikeOtsuka) March 18, 2018

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— Michael Otsuka (@MikeOtsuka) March 23, 2018
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— Michael Otsuka (@MikeOtsuka) March 18, 2018
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/— Michael Otsuka (@MikeOtsuka) March 19, 2018
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— Martin O'Neill (@martin_oneill) March 23, 2018
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— Michael Otsuka (@MikeOtsuka) March 19, 2018
