The #Pakistan #Army learned the lessons from the #Vietnam war and carefully controlled the Western #narrative and the level of aggression in Afghanistan, the #US military apparently didn't, and lived in an imaginary wonderland created by its friends in Pakistan!
2/usa #BeAware: Unless #US foreign policy experts learn the correct lessons from the US post-war experience in the Indian sub-continent (& Asia more generally), they cannot be trusted to give sensible advise on S Asia to the US congress and US govt
3/usa This is solid competition for #CCP🤡, but #PRC will still win hands down! 🤓

Some points as precaution from banking call frauds

1. First principle which need to be developed is to not pick up unknown no. or fancy number.

2. If supposed u pick it up, don't try any guess working for identify. Either ask who is calling if not telling then cut the call.
3. Fraudster just wait for our guess work and once we tell one name, they will accept as it is and If u find deviation in identification of voice then cut the call and try to contact separately on that original person contact no. which is saved with you and confirm that fact.
4. Never transfer or allow any fund receipt request from any unknown number call or #SM profile who pretends to be someone who you know , just cut the call and contact the original person for confirmation of fact.

5. Never click on any unknow
"to pay" requests recieved on UPI

#Hypothesis: Agreement to disengage in Pangong lake was reached in Sept-oct, but #CCP11 backtracked in Oct/nov on expectation of Biden win! Blinken's 6th Feb call to Yang Xi confirmed firm US policy towards China. #Xi gave approval for implantation of Pangong agreement thereafter
2/hy #CCPPLA will not abandon its #Creeping #Acquisition policy on India-Tibet border till there is a border settlement, or we establish #Hard #Deterrence viz #PLA, or both! Indian Nat security apparatus is working on this premise; Post-Galwan,political estblishment is on board!
3/hy Dis-engaging tanks & Heavy armor, from battle field positions, is the first step!

@ABlinken as Sec of State is reassuring for cntrys worried about threat and use of force by #CCP #China. With Strategic perspective restored, India-US Military & Geopolitical cooperation can grow faster, tho economic relations will be subject to domestic constraints in 2 cntrys
2/biden My judgement is based on Blinkens pre-election talk in Chatham house & his subsequent statements. Like Indian Govt PotusB believes in "Speaking softly, but carrying a big(ger) stick". Blinken was V clear abt th board spectrum threat frm China's #TechnoAuthoritarian system
3/biden India as a major #TechnoDemocracy(Blinken's terms), should work with EU/Japan/UK/Aus/Can to propose new initiatives to USA, such as #SCRI, which plurilateral coalitions of #TechnoDemocracies can work together on. cc @DrSJaishankar

Idiot!! Confuses referencing with "Shabda Pramana". First these "Scientific reasoning and logical acumen"( or whatever) self-conceited Dhakkans should develop the understanding of "Pramana" as it's stated in Scriptures.
Don't get fooled by the Sanskrit terms used by Oak in his books and talks eg like this one.

It has nothing to do with Pramana Shashtra of Indic Aastik or Nastik Darshans. Oak's methodology has been nicely deconstructed by @jayasartn in her book. Let me quote.

"...he often talks about a methodology in his videos and blogs for dating Mahabharata war. He compared the
methodologies of sage Patanjali, Karl Popper and Richard Feynman and arrived at a combination.

“There are only two industries that refer to their customers as 'users': illegal drugs and software. " — Edward Tufte

I took the time yesterday to watch the Social Dilemma on Netflix and it is so important to watch.
10/10 recommendation.

Make the time to watch it. Image
I actually made a presentation on this topic like 4-5 years ago on how our phones were going to know what we want before we even realized it because of all the data and models they would have of us.

Turns out they were already doing it at that point in time 🙃!

It really hit hard when I saw the numbers on how this affected kids and teenagers.

Please make sure you watch out for these problems, if we as adults can't even control ourselves imagine the burden on them that are still developing their character and personality.

📢 NEW: In the last month @amnesty Security Lab analyzed many #COVID19 contact-tracing apps. We found apps from Kuwait, Bahrain and Norway among the most problematic, although privacy and security issues are common. THREAD 👇
amnesty.org/en/latest/news…
Kuwait #Shlonik, Bahrain #BeAwareBahrain and Norway #Smittestopp all conduct GPS tracking of their users. After they are installed, latitudes and longitude are recorded and later uploaded to their central servers at different frequencies: from every few minutes to every hour. 😬
Both the apps from Kuwait and Norway also conduct Bluetooth contact tracing, and both also automatically upload records of contact to a central server allowing live monitoring of people's "contacts".

If you get an alert randomly from an anonymous account, before you start singing "Baba God answer prayer...", find out who it was that sent it.

All transactions traceable to fraudulent accounts & owners will be listed and some explanations will be required.
I have seen people thanking God for some money they weren't expecting and didn't bother to know who was that generous to dash them money.

This is not the time. You have to be able to explain whatever comes into your account...and especially what you spend.
If any money lands in your account, find out who it was - don't be a victim of fraudulent transfers and money laundering.

Being mentioned on a list of beneficiaries of fraudulent proceeds can be a red flag...your account may be restricted or watch listed for a while.

YOU LIKE AWOOF INTERNET THROUGH FREE HOTSPOTS OR PUBLIC WIFI - and you connect to your Bank through same, make purchases on e-commerce sites, access your email, Social Media or make transactions online, YOU MAY BE IN DANGER.

A #Thread

@yinkanubi
According to the Nigerian Communication Commissions, as at Feb 2019, Nigeria has about 115m internet subscribers of the 173m mobile subscribers.

Of course this doesn't mean 115m people but it shows internet penetration is on the rise from less than 90m 4yrs ago.
Due to the high cost of living, quite a number may not be able to afford subscribing for internet, hence the reliance on free WiFi where ever they are available.

Even those that can afford, also look for free WiFi in public/private places like hotels, cafeteria, etc

KNOW YOUR PAYMENT CARD DETAILS - and keep them safe from fraudsters and scammers.

A #Thread

Cc @yinkanubi

#BeWare #Beaware
Your payment card - debit, credit or prepaid - contains loads of information.

Two types mainly:
Those that can be read electronically
Those that can be read physically

Let's focus on the easiest and most vulnerable - those that can be read physically.
Your payment card has:
Bank name
PAN - Primary Account Number
Cardholder name
Expiry Date
Card brand
CVV - Card Verification Value

A combination of these data are used to consummate financial transactions and therefore need to be protected.

A security question is a form of shared secret used as an authenticator.

It is commonly used by banks, cable companies and wireless providers as an extra security layer. - @Wikipedia

When a random post asks you any or a combination of any the following questions, let your antenna be up and please ignore:

The house number & street name you lived in as a child?

Thread 1) Jewish-American voters who support Israel should feel betrayed. After waffling during the election, new US House member @IlhanMN tells @muslimgirl (aka #MuslimMeanGirls) that she "believes in and supports the @BDSmovement." the "exclusive": muslimgirl.com/50283/ilhan-om…
2) For Muslim Americans, like me, this is no surprise. @IlhanMN is allied with @lsarsour and @CAIR_National, all virulently anti-Israel...and yes as a result anti-Semitic, despite their protests that being anti-Israel is not anti-Semitic. It is. thejc.com/news/world/i-s…
3) No surprise to us 2 @MuslimGirl publishes pro-BDS spin. Palestinian-American editor Amani Al-Khatahtbeh @xoamani tries 2 #girlWash her anti-Israel pro-BDS rage w/collabs with naive @TeenVogue. But her anti-Semitism traces back to her Rutgers' days jakebinstein.com/blog/amanis-fi…
