I’m exhausted with dreaming of money then immediately being consumed with thoughts of money as soon as I wake up. I’m so damned tired. Tired of crowdfunding. Tired of being contacted for creative jobs that don’t pull through. Tired of freelancing & not getting paid. I’m so tired.
For the last few days, I’ve dreamt that my GFM hit $9,300. I will wake up from the dream in the middle of the night, check the GFM, go back to sleep, have the dream again, wake up, check the GFM, go back to sleep, have the dream AGAIN, wake up, check the GFM-

@WhatsApp has challenged the traceability provision in the Delhi High Court stating it is unconstitutional and against the fundamental Right to #Privacy as enshrined in Justice K.S. Puttaswamy vs UOI (2017).

indianexpress.com/article/techno…
In order to follow the traceability provision i.e. Rule 4(2), WhatsApp would have to break end-to-end encryption for its users thereby undermining privacy of messages to its users.

#Twitter & #Facebook are not getting #banned but If these significant social media intermediaries don't comply with the #ITRules they could however lose the safe harbor protection which means they could incur liability (civil & criminal) for the acts done by third party users.
The Rules could also undermine the principles of open & accessible internet, the fundamental #RightToPrivacy & #FreeSpeech & expression enshrined in the Constitution.

The #informationtechnology Rules, 2021 (#ILRules) which have been prescribed by the #Centralgovt under Section 79 of the IT Act are a set of compliances which the intermediaries have to abide by, in order to keep the safe harbor protection intact.

#VaccinationForAll
The @MoHFW_INDIA has allowed on-site registration for the 18-44 age group. This is limited to Government #COVIDVaccination centers (CVCs) at the present moment.
pib.gov.in/PressReleseDet…
#cowinregistration #VaccinationDrive #COVID19 #IndiaFightsCOVID19 Image
But this is a mere eyewash because-
1.This has been left to the discretion of the respective state/ UT governments
2.This shall be implemented only if vaccine has been left unutilised from online registrations and that too at Government CVCs.
#VaccineFor18Plus #VaccineForAll
While this has been stated in a press release, the #CoWIN website’s FAQs still state that online registration is mandatory for 18-44 age group.

Dm us for more information.

The single father needs $380.00 for rent.

The single senior needs $476.00 for her meds that aren’t covered.

The two requests from last night are for a single female that is taking care of her mom who is 70. She has NO food in their house.

At a time when the entire country is grappling with #COVID-19, mandatory #CoWin registration by @AyushmanNHA will lead to exclusion of citizens from 18-44 years from vaccination who do not use smartphones or do not have an internet connection.
@rssharma3 @MoHFW_INDIA
Not every citizen has digital literacy to be able to register online for vaccination via CoWIN's website or mobile application.
As @prateekwaghre pointed out that as of December, 2020, there are only 58 internet subscribers out of 100 people in India. This would further push people from getting #vaccination.

En 2013,de camino al matadero,Edith,la “oveja maravilla”,hizo un “Misión Imposible” y escapó del camión de la 💀.Todos los planetas se alinearon y fue rescatada.Semanas+tarde,Edith se convertiría en la primera habitante y fundadora moral del Santuario de animales #LeonVegano

⬇️
Durante 8 años,LV ha dado hogar y rehabilitado a cientos de afortunadas excepciones como Edith:Los "animales de granja" y/o invisibles condenados x el sistema.Desgraciadamente,también fueron apareciendo dificultades q amenazaban la misión del santuario y las vidas d sus habitants
En 2018 LV tuvo que poner fin a los rescates,visitas y a que potenciales voluntarixs vivieran en el santuario. Si no conseguían moverse a otro terreno, tendrían que cerrar permanentemente. Necesitaban 100,000€ para comprar nuevas tierras para lxs actuales y futurxs inquilinxs.

Help Leon Vegano Animal Sanctuary! 🐱🐶🐟🐑🐓🦃🕊️🦆🦚

In 2013, on her way to the slaughterhouse, Edith, the wonder sheep, pulled a “Mission Impossible” and managed to escape from “the death truck”. Hooray! All the planets aligned & eventually she was happily rescued 💚🥳
Weeks later,she became the 1st inhabitant & moral founder of Leon Vegano Animal Sanctuary(Spain).For the last 8 years,LV has given a home,looked after&rehabilitated hundreds of lucky exceptions,like Edith,so called farm animals or invisible souls forgotten/condemned by the system
Unfortunately, many setbacks soon started to threaten the mission and the lives of its rescues.
In 2018 Leon Vegano had to put an end to all the rescue missions, visits and the possibility of having resident volunteers living at the Sanctuary.

This evening at 4:45pm we got a call from a social worker that works with seniors. She called us in a frenzy asking us for immediate help.

She told us of an emergency so extreme that her voice shook with concern over one of her clients.

#YYC #Calgary #CalgarySeniors #hope
This is what she said:

"Hello Jen, I was hoping I would be able to contact you before I left my work for the day in regards to a rather important situation that came across my desk this afternoon. I hope you have the time to chat?"

I said "Yes of course, how can we help?" #care
She said "We have a senior lady that is struggling so much that she has been going door to door asking for food from others in her complex."

I was quiet and honestly speechless.

I said "Of course we can and we will help. What is it that you need." #FEEDYYC #FoodHamper #helping

As #DigitalIndia is becoming a reality, it is important to understand that maximum efforts have to be made to make internet free, accessible, and inclusive to all.

After a day of delivering shopping for and hampers with @merylyyc, I was dropping my daughter off at her dads for the week when I first got a call from a single mom that needed help.

Picture below is a truck full of hampers!
I answered the phone and explained the steps this person on the phone needed to do to apply for assistance. She told me she would head to the site right away.....and she did.

So this 🚨Emergency🚨 came in tonight. (See photo of email).
I immediately contacted her and asked her what she immediately needed. She explained that she needed to get out of the room she is sharing with her children & into a basement suite

She then said she wanted a meal or two so she could eat like a family with her kids for Christmas.

A petition has been filed by Ms. Tanya Mahajan in the Bombay High Court against the de-facto imposition of @SetuAarogya by officials of Passport Seva Kendra, Mumbai.

Tanya is represented by counsels from SFLC.IN and Ms. @saxenaditi, Advocate Bombay High Court.
The matter was listed for hearing today. In today's hearing, the Bench issued a notice asking respondents to file their reply before the next date i.e. 07.01.2020. No representatives on behalf of the Regional Passport Office appeared today.

sflc.in/petition-bomba…
The petitioner was denied entry by Passport Seva Kendra, Malad for refusing to install Aarogya Setu. The petitioner has contended that the Aarogya Setu app is voluntary in nature per MHA guidelines dated 17.05.2020 and subsequent guidelines.

Our analysis reveals that the #SourceCode that has been released as the “backend code” is grossly incomplete. Though any effort at transparency needs to be lauded, much of how the @SetuAarogya operates is still opaque
privacy.sflc.in/aarogyasetubac…
@NICMeity @GoI_MeitY
#AarogyaSetu
The code released on 20th November does contain code that corresponds to the #frontend of the website web.swaraksha.gov.in/ncv19 and the code released also contains code that lets the website interact with the application through the #webview.
@SetuAarogya
#COVID19 #ContactTracing
However, some of the libraries/modules that the code depends on have not been released and very little of the released code is meant to run on the #backend.

**Help IS Desperately NEEDED** **Emergency HELP**

This is very hard for us to write. But we feel we have no other choice due to us seeing the massive amount of requests that we are getting daily for both Humans and Pets.

Here is what has happened as of late:
This past weekend alone, we had over 30 emergency requests from individuals & families fleeing domestic violence. Many leaving with nothing but the clothes on their backs.

We were able to help about 17 of these individuals find shelter and lodging via referrals to other groups.
The other 13 individuals are being helped by our awesome volunteers. We are tracking down emergency funding and helping them apply for help through various organizations here in #Calgary.

We will be assisting them and their families in hopes of helping them feel safe once again.

This is why we will never leave our lands to the Azeris!

“The image of the 12th floor of my house in Baku, Azerbajian haunted me all my life as a child and as an adult. I watched from our balcony as tens of thousands of Azerbaijanis gathered 1/12
in the boulevard, singing to clean the city from the Armenians. Absolute fear, my mother grabbed me on the balcony, turning off the lights. The ethnic killings of Armenians began on February 27, 1988, in the town of Sumgait, just 18 miles from the capital where we lived. 2/12
After the rally, the men were given lists, addresses of Armenian neighborhoods, houses and places of work. Immediately my family went into hiding. No one was spared, complete anarchy. Thousands of Armenians have been brutally tortured, 3/12
