1984: Housing Estates
YOU pay the HUGE salary for the extensions of the police state. Coz despite YOU paying for “private security”, they apparently follow orders from the police. Cops/sheriffs gain unfettered access, & police-state curfews are now policed by THEM. On YOUR dime❗️
So if the govnmt changed their tune suddenly, & enforced a lockdown with, say, a genocide agenda; like what happened in Zimbabwe; YOUR private security Co would keep YOU locked in YOUR high walled, electric fenced housing complex, until they came to get you. Coz laws trump rights
So you have private security coz the state enables crime❗️As they don’t even have prison beds to accommodate a TINY fraction of crimes committed, so #OccamsRazor how could they even imprison them❓Yet if the mostly corrupt cops can “just” enter your complex, surely they can get

Modern municipal waste disposal is not limited to removal of garbage but involves a strategic churning out of unwanted people. This is seen through a massive fire (2016) managed by displacing waste-workers @ Deonar dump 1/10 @DiscardStudies #Discard2020
Through ethnographic work conducted over 11 months (2016-17) I found that criminalization & blame are central to the removal of waste-workers from Mumbai’s Deonar landfill by labelling them as ‘illegal’ & rendering them unwanted. 2/10 #Discard2020
Landfills globally succeed in keeping waste ‘out of sight & out of mind’ except during moments of disruption. Toxic smoke from an exhausted Deonar engulfed Mumbai, triggering demands for its closure & exhibiting a forgotten landfill 3/10 #Discard2020

Bombay High Court comes down heavily upon #BMC for demolishing @KanganaTeam 's house in undue haste. Asks why was so much police presence during the demolition? Why BMC didn't submit demolition pictures before the Court?
Bombay High Court further asked the #BMC about the date of demolition. Did you call the police at the spot? BMC officer present in the court denied having called the police. Question is: how did #MumbaiPolice deploy its personnel without being requested by the BMC?
Bombay High Court will hear the petition of @KanganaTeam on Tuesday again as the hearing was inconclusive today. Since 'Saamna' the mouthpiece of Shiv Sena had come out with a headline 'Ukhaad Diya', the next day, #SanjayRaut & Co can't hide behind alibis.

#BMC ne jo todna tha, who tod diya. Now no use of such scathing comments by #BombayHC.

Will HC ask @mybmc to
a) Pay compensation to @KanganaTeam?
b) Make BMC officials pay hefty fines for disobeying court-orders of Not-Demolishing-in-Covid-times?

HC exercise waste of time now!
How @mybmc folks(at behest of @PawarSpeaks @OfficeofUT) hoodwinked the #BombayHC by not appearing before court and demolishing KR's premises at the same time. Vakeel of BMC who appeared later, didn't have copy of petition.
Will HC take any tough action?😎
#BombayHC asked @mybmc to file affidavit and also appear before it, at 3 PM today. Wonder if #BMC officials will oblige or try to get adjournment with various excuses through lawyers/tricks?

After yesterday's stunt, #BMC has NO FACE to show in HC😎

I am writing a thread on the reasons which I believe are the cause of failure of @mybmc and the state govt in handling of Covid pandemic in Mumbai.
Number of Covid positive cases in India, has crossed 1.39 lakhs..Out of this, Maharashtra has 50,231 cases..The biggest contributor is the financial capital of India i.e. Mumbai with over 30,000 cases..On fatalities front, India has 4,021 out of which Maharashtra has 1,635.
Mumbai has a little less than 1,000 fatalities..The reasons for such higher number of cases in Mumbai are 2.
1) A very high population residing in slums/chawls.
2) Incompetance and apathy from #BMC and the state govt..
In last few days, I have come to know about a few cases+

CM #UddhavThackeray addresses state: We are all waiting for this war to get over. Like I had said earlier, if we could have seen our enemy, we could have won this war a long time ago.

#COVID19 #COVID #CoronaInMaharashtra #Coronavirus #CoronavirusLockdown #CoronavirusOutbreak
CM #UddhavThackeray: But this enemy is invisible. And another factor is that this enemy is using our own people to spread its infection. Determination, strength, patience all of these will stand us in good stead.

CM Uddhav Thackeray: Tomorrow we will complete 6 weeks since we have been in a #lockdown. Many are constantly looking at numbers and raising questions so I want to place some numbers in front of you.

Dear Mr. Praveen Pardeshi, #Municipal #Commissioner, @mybmc Sir we are going through tough times and to cease the #coronavirus in #slums of #Mumbai there's a need for #MCGM & #Maharashtra #Government to vigorously work with Community Based Organisations (#CBOs) @OfficeofUT (cont)
There are 1200 plus #CBOs in #Mumbai formed under the #Slum #sanitation Program of #MCGM. @CMOMaharashtra if #BMC could appoint one nodal NGO/CBO who are experts in Sanitation, through nodal #NGO government/companies could find it easy to reach the CBOs & their communities (cont)
with various welfare packages and would also find easy to detect the affected person easily because #CBOs are formed for caretaking the community toilets and welfare of the community, they have the list of families who are the beneficiaries of the toilet and are also aware (cont)

PRESUMPTION by @AishaYesufu

Good morning Sis,
Few people tweeted at me yesterday & today when they saw your thread #DontBeLikeBuhari & the continuous toga #Incompetent #Inept #Clueless
I have a little time to earn #BMC N30K now🤣
@AishaYesufu A few days ago, after waiting for 2 days & I noticed that you were not forthcoming to my request, I tried to put a few thoughts in my heart together, not to proof any point, it's just an avenue to raise our level of discussion concerning #ProjectNigeria👇

@AishaYesufu Responding to your thread will never mean that you are completely wrong & will never sweep under the carpet the reality of a few stuff you raised under the leadership of @MBuhari as @NGRPresident although, I think it could have been said in a more decent manner. We are different!

Today, I will try my hand at live tweeting insights from "A #Home of One's Own", a two-day #researchworkshop on socially & economically #marginalised women's experiences of and negotiations with #genderinequalities in #informalurbanhousing in India.
This workshop has been organised by #JadavpurUniversity (School of Women's Studies), #RabindraBharathiUniversity (Centre for Women's Studies) and #Parichiti, a women's organisation. All three are research partners on a #GCRF project funded by @GoldsmithsUoL.
Since Oct 2018, I have collaborated with Dr. Henrike Donner, who is leading it, to develop #researchcollaborations with #educational and #development organisations in India to implement a pilot study on #genderurbanhousing. This workshop marks the end of the first phase.

1) Nordic Monitor has investigated how #Erdogan rushed to gift Turkey’s multibillion dollar tank factory to cronies, #Qatar. Quite interesting facts came out.…
2) The documents reviewed conclude Erdoğan rushed a bilateral financial agreement between Turkey and Qatar through Parliament for approval ahead of his decision to turn over a $20 billion tank and pallet factory to a company run jointly by his associates and the Qatari army.
3) The deal, the avoidance of double taxation agreement, came just in the nick of time before govt presented national tank factory on a silver platter to Turkish-Qatari armored vehicle manufacturer #BMC, a company run by Ethem Sancak, a member of #Erdogan's ruling party politburo

#prod365 #fr Les Plans de Continuité d'Activité (#PCA) ont pour but de retablir le SI après un "désastre". Un tel événement est aussi appelé "Disaster Recovery" (#DR) et inclus de nombreux événements graves, notamment la perte de #datacenter ou de données.
Citons quelques exemples: corruption silencieuse, destruction du medium de stockage (par erreur ou par nuisance: piratage ou rogue employee), isolation réseau (coup de pelleteuse dans la fibre), script d'administration mal fait / boucle foireuse, clause WHERE oubliée...
Pour de multiples raisons, certaines applications ne peuvent pas être disponibles en Actif/Actif, seulement Actif/Passif.
Cela implique de pouvoir répliquer les données live et de les réutiliser sur une autre machine.

In combat, the most dangerous of soldiers are not the sùfáyòs (expendables) shooting sporadically like a maniac, but the snipers picking off their targets with dynamic headshots without wasting bullets even from afar off. A key characteristic of this kind is Patience.⛱
Don’t rush to join the mob in a free for all thinking you can make yourself heard in the rowdy bunch when you should be seeking patterns and strategizing on a unique means of meaningful engagement that will have such an impact that makes you remarkably unforgettable.
Twitter is such a spacewhere you find a millions of people across the globe speaking at the same time. Some even scream in capital letters to drown the opinions of others forgetting that we don’t need to raise the decibel of our voices but raise the quality of our thoughts.
