I don't want to quote tweet - I don't want to initiate any negative responses but I have seen many tweets & RTs today celebrating the intimidation & bullying of a #woman at today's #NWCI #Dublin rally for #InternationalWomensDay. I find this wholly unacceptable.
1/8
It was an #IWD2022 rally, supposedly for, by & about women, but obviously only for some women, only for women who agree with certain concepts, ideas & who share certain opinions. #Women are not a homogenous group, nor should we be, we have varying opinions & beliefs. 2/8
A #woman, entitled to be there with her placard, was surrounded, shouted at & intimated until she left - this is, without a shadow of doubt, bullying. Many people who attend such rallies talk about being #inclusive, but what that inclusivity actually refers to is 'agreement'. 3/8

❗️Thread « Quel #islam pour l’Europe? Les institutions de formation des Frères Musulmans»
▶️ Documentaire exceptionnel de @KellerSaida sur la façon dont les Frères Musulmans forment des imams en Europe, diffusé au festival de film de #Carthage
🎥: mb-dok.netlify.app/MB-DOK_FR_720p…

Plusieurs fins connaisseurs expliquent les méthodes de l’entrisme des Frères Musulmans:
@BestandjiNaem décrit leur ciblage de la gauche via la stratégie de victimisation et le militantisme islamiste autour du voile;
@djemilaben décrit leur capacité à séduire les européens

.@Maaroufi9 décrit la #Turquie comme une théocratie qui, à l’initiative d’#Erdogan, cherche à influencer par le biais d’organisations et d’instituts de formation, à la fois la classe politique européenne et les musulmans de notre continent

¡Diez cosas que siempre quisiste saber sobre los #vikingos y nunca te atreviste a preguntar!
¡Adentro 🧵!
#Arqueologia #Arte e #Historia de este pueblo de la #EdadMedia escandinava. ¿Salvajes guerreros, intrépidos exploradores o refinados comerciantes?
1⃣ Es posible que os baile la cronología vikinga. Tradicionalmente se usan como inicio y final del periodo dos fechas:
793-Saqueo del monasterio de Lindisfarne (Inglaterra)
1066-Derrota de Harold el Despiadado en la batalla de Stamford
Por tanto, se ubican entre los s.VIII y XI
2⃣ No constituyeron un estado unificado, sino que les unían la lengua (noruego antiguo), la cultura y las creencias religiosas. Suele hablarse de #vikingos daneses, suecos y noruegos, según su ubicación original.

The #Zapatista tour of #Ireland, a long aul’ thread (but pix and vids!) to wrap up

In 1994 indigenous peasants in the mountains of SE Mexico rose up against #neoliberal capitalism, their latest struggle in 500 years of resisting colonialism…

#LaGiraZapatistaVa #EZLN Zapatista women at La Realidad
If you need a backgrounder, here's Mick McCaughan, ex-Latin American correspondent for the Irish Times and Guardian introducing why the #Zapatistas matter:

27 years later, they hold liberated territory the size of Munster –

governing themselves from below

with a powerful #womxn’s movement

practicing #AgroEcology

and with their own culture, education system, community media...

106 years ago, one of #Ireland's giants of #Astronomy, Margaret Lindsay Murray Huggins (1848 - 1915), passed #OnThisDay

#HERstory #STEM #GLobalIrishNation #OTD Margaret Lindsay Huggins
2) Margaret Lindsay Murray was born in #Dublin in 1848 and lost her mother her mother, Helen Lindsay, while still a child. In the absence of her mother, she seems to have developed a shared interest in Astronomy with her paternal #Scottish banker grandfather Robert Murray
3) Margaret seems to have been self educated, delving into #astronomy and developing photographic skills which became important for her future research in astronomical spectrography which involves the examination of light spectrums emitted by planets, stars and nebulae

#Irish artist, Sarah Purser (1848 - 1943) was born #OnThisDay 173 years ago. Her family was prosperous with a background in brewing. Shortly after her birth, her father Benjamin decided to move the family from #Dublin south to Dungarvan in #Waterford

#OTD #BOTD #HERstory Image
2) Sarah would go to finishing school in #Switzerland where she learned to speak French and began painting. On her return to #Ireland she enrolled in the Dublin Metropolitan School of Art and would go on to attend the Académie Julian in #Paris Image
3) In the early 1870s Benjamin’s businesses collapsed and Sarah now had to rely on her ability to generate income from art commissions. While she did some landscape and genre painting, portraiture appeared to be her metier

I discovered something new about humans: how parents name their children reveals info on how many kids they’re planning to have.

Thread on forthcoming paper in #Demography on kids’ names & sexual/fertility norms among #Irish #Catholics

Preprint: osf.io/preprints/soca… Image
The map shows where Catholic parents chose distinctly Catholic names (Catholic Index) or traditional names (Traditional Name Score) for kids + their total surviving children as of 1911 (Net fertility). Family size highly correlated with Catholic and traditional names.
Background:
In 1860, a woman in an industrializing nation like Britain could expect to give birth to 6 children.
By 1940, that number had dropped to 2.

#Ireland #Dublin #Coronavirus

Despite a holiday ban due to the corona pandemic, according to media reports, thousands of Irish have recently flown abroad. To do this, they use a loophole in the legislation:
Travel is permitted if it is necessary for health reasons. Numerous people have now booked dental appointments in Spain, for example, reported the Internet portal "Politico".
A dental assistant on the Spanish Canary Island of Tenerife told RTÉ Radio that her practice received five to seven appointment requests a day from Irish people, often young couples. Usually the patients are elderly European travelers, she said.

Sıradan bir kitapseverin #JamesJoyce’un #Ulysses’i ile 24 senelik imtihanı (1996-2020)... Bu thread benim gibi #Ulysses’e başlayıp başlayıp sonunda bitireceklere adanmıştır. @enisbatur @MeltemGurle @armaganekici
1996’da lise son sınıfta iken @YKYHaber 'in başında @enisbatur vardı ve ilk #Ulysses çevirisini #NevzatErkmen yapmıştı. Kitabın dil oyunlar ile başa çıkabilecek en iyi aday deniyordu. Çünkü hem eşi #Joyce ’un ülkesi #İrlanda ’dandı hem de Zeka Oyunları Takımı’nın başındaydı.
Heyecanla ilk baskıyı satın aldım. Fakat herkes #Ulysses 'in rehber kitap olmadan okunamayacağı görüşündeydi. Nitekim benim de denemelerim başarısız oldu ve anahtar kitabı beklemeye başladım. O esnada üniversite bitti ve İngiltere’ye taşındım.

As #Obama A Promised Land no 1 bestseller #Dublin #bookshops ,timely piece by @bassamva to remind us of his Syria policy&urgent appeal to US president elect @JoeBiden for change .@ABlinken Thread thenationalnews.com/opinion/commen… via @TheNationalNews
“The incoming administration certainly needs a different approach to the Syrian crisis”- #Obama "red line"threat did little to deter President Bashar Al Assad,who used chemical weapons against his own civilians. Mr Al Assad's military operations went on to displace millions /2
of ordinary Syrians–thereby creating one of the largest humanitarian crises since the Second World War–and his regime destroyed much of the country..All this happened at a time when theObama administration was engaging with Iran and negotiating a deal over its nuclear programme/3

#Ireland #Dublin #Coronavirus

According to a media report, health officials in Ireland are recommending that the government return to a complete "lockdown". The authority (NPHET) recommends raising restrictions to level 5, reports the broadcaster RTE.
Almost all districts are currently still at level 2. At level 5, citizens are asked to stay in their houses and apartments. You are then only allowed to move within a radius of 5 kilometers from there.
Gatherings are only allowed at funerals or weddings - and even there only with a few people.
