A Very Dangerous Gamble by #Kurdish Factions In #Syria to Free #ISIS Prisoners In Hope Of Countering #Turkey Op & Garner International PR-Support. Bad for #Syria- Bad for All!- - - “Syria: IS fighters escape from jail as 130,000 people flee Turkish forces” uk.news.yahoo.com/syria-fighters…
Meanwhile, as world #MSM churns misinfo & propaganda, media in #Turkey curls into a ball-inept & paralyzed. Maybe instead of spending billions of dollars investing in #S400 they should have poured that money to clone RT-USA like English international media power? Just asking!
After all this is the era of information warfare (obviously)- While #Turkey remains in Yester-Gone Era

@KamalaHarris has none of the necessary tools to preside over this nation. But #birtherism #challenges to her qualifications to be elected are #silly.
In the years preceding the 2016 election, because @tedcruz and I share many of the same views, I spent considerable time and energy evaluating the question of whether he could be, consistent with the Constitution, qualified to serve as President.
If you're wondering why that would even be in doubt, remember two things: I am a hide-bound constitutionalist; and, the Constitution provides the brief but precise requirements to be qualified to be president.

#Turkey: President #Erdogan has made new pledges, including sweeping #reforms and some changes in the cabinet. I hope the coming #Reforms include the #Media in #Turkey- especially the new highly-budgeted #TRTWorld. I can only hope.
A strong, journalistically ethical, and effective multi-language #media is greatly needed for not only #Turkey, but for the rest of the world to obtain multi-sided information and news on Turkey. This is the age of #InformationWarfare and so far Turkey is light years behind.
Well, my message to #Turkey #President is here on the record; currently Pinned- should Read all in Bold.- - - “After Istanbul loss, Turkey's Erdogan vows to listen to people's 'messages' | The Japan Times” japantimes.co.jp/news/2019/06/2…

Heavy traffic! This map shows routes of #Dutch, #English and #Swedish East India companies, based on the amazing #CLIWOC dataset (thanks @stvno!). The data is based on naval logbook records; here I only show data pre-1800. #twttterstorians #AsianTwitter #maritimehistory #VOC
You can download the data here: stvno.github.io/page/cliwoc/ or here: easy.dans.knaw.nl/ui/datasets/id…
I'll soon tweet some more maps using this dataset, they allow (among others) linkage with the VOC crews dataset.

Sharing #MyStory as an #international #immigrant a part of @IWS_Network #Voices without #Frontiers initiative! As a #scientist and an advocate for #workplaceequality, I believe in the power of stories. #IWS #VoicesIWS #SayItForward #WomenInspire #WomeninScience #WomenInSTEM
As a child, how would you have liked moving schools in new cities with different cultures every 2-4 years?

Growing up in the #IndianArmy, I absolutely loved it! By the time I was 18, we had moved over 9 times across 9 states! #Diversity #India #TravelTuesday #IWS #VoicesIWS
My #memories of #India include sunny days, welcoming people, rich heritage, vibrant colors, abundant fruits and mouth-watering street food! #IWS #VoicesIWS

Hello, I am Edna Matta. I was born in #Ibague, known as #Colombia’s #CityofMusic. A beautiful place near snow-covered volcanos (Ruiz, Santa Isabel and Tolima), large expanses of paramo forest, lakes and streams where a diverse array of animal and plant species coexist
My story starts with #powerful, #strong #women in my #family. I was the third of 4 children and my mom #firstMentor had to raise us practically alone, since my father had to work in a different city, 20h away by car
My mom is a very #strong #woman that taught me #values, to #workhard and to be #self-sufficient #StrongWomen #StrongFamily

I was born and raised in the beautiful city of #Curitiba, southern #Brazil!
This region is famous for being cold and cloudy (yes it can be cold in Brazil!).
It is also famous for its very endemic and beautiful #Araucaria pine trees. #voicesIWS @IWS_Network @500womensci /1
#Actions speak louder than words! I am thankful for my parents for being who they are. Both always showed love for Nature, different interests and #curiosity! So no wonder by observing them I grew up to be a very curious girl who really loved Nature. #voicesIWS @IWS_Network /2
During High School I became fascinated by the #mendelian #genetics classes and the work of #gregormendel! I also loved studying animals, ecosystems and climate so the obvious choice for me in University (@PUCPR_oficial ) was BIOLOGY!! @IWS_Network #womeninscience #voicesIWS /3

A bilingual sign tells you more than just where you need to go.

It tells you a country has more than one native language.

It tells you how the names for places are connected, or sometimes not, between languages.

It teaches you what others call that place in their language.
It demonstrates that the country values linguistic diversity and equality between linguistic communities.

It may tell you that you are entering a place whether another language is more predominent.
It tells you that you may expect to hear another language or experience another culture upon arrival.

It may tell you that folk spoke a now minoritised language in a place before the dominant majority language.

Let's talk a little about #history, #language, and #languagechange. Many of the world's languages evolved from historical #protolanguages and have sister and cousin languages in their family, similar to how animals are classified.
For example, #English is a #WestGermanic language within the #IndoEuropean family.

Meanwhile, languages like #Basque are #isolates, meaning they have no known language relatives. There are some fringe theories about Basque, but none that are widely-accepted.
Take a look at your #language or languages you like on ethnologue.com. Comment below on any surprising facts you find or any questions that come up!

Many families (mine included) face tough decisions on what #languages to speak at home. There's a lot of #myths about early #bilingualism , like:
-Kids will get confused
-They'll have lang delays
-They won't learn the majority/dominant language

More info: hanen.org/Helpful-Info/A…
In my family, my dad spoke #arabic and my mom spoke #english. My dad was concerned about me learning English so after about 5 y/o, we hardly spoke Arabic. Since I didn't have any Arabic-speaking peers or teachers, my Arabic suffered attrition and now I understand, but not speak
My case isn't uncommon either-many early #bilinguals and #heritagespeakers often don't have the linguistic support systems (at home or in school) to maintain their languages, due to factors such as lang myths, discrimination, lang policy in schools, etc

Right, so tomorrow is International Mother Language Day, and partially because I wont be at @LonGaeilge to waffle on about stuff in Irish, I'll waffle a bit about #IMLD here in English
I've no idea where this waffle will go, I'm just doing to lash into it without any direction in mind. #IMLD started in Bangladesh. Bangla is a language that is of central importance to #IMLD and to me personally.
If it wasn't for #Bangla, I know for certain that my #Gaeilge would not be what it is. It was when I started to learn Bangla that I also started going back to learning Irish.

1/ Manu (The progenitor of Humankind)
All different races of Mankind are derived from Manu and Shradha. The current Manu is Vaivasvata Manu.
2/ The word Manu literary means man but it is a title given to the progenitor of mankind. According to Hindu Puranas there are many kalpas (One day of Lord Brahma the creator) and each Kalpa has 14 manvantara and each manvatara has one manu. So basically each Kalpa has 14 Manus.
3/ The current manu of the present manvantara is Shraddhadeva or Vaivasvata Manu of this current Kalpa. He is the son of Vivasvat (Probably Surya) and is therefore also known as Manu-vaivasvata.
