Many mainstream rights groups and media organizations have a mixed history when it comes to opposing Washington’s agenda. The case of #JulianAssange has been no exception.

#AmnestyInternational’s Europe Director described the hearings against #julianAssange as an “assault on the right to freedom of expression” that would have a “chilling effect on media freedom.”

ALL ABOUT TWINS
There are two main types of twins.

1. (IDENTICAL TWINS)
The woman ovulates ONE EGG which is joined by ONE SPERM & becomes ONE ZYGOTE.
This now splits into 2 babies

This type of twins are usually so similar you can barely tell them apart
They are same sex. Image
2 (FRATERNAL TWINS)
The woman ovulates TWO EGGS & they are joined by TWO DIFFERENT SPERMS to become TWO ZYGOTES to become 2 different babies.
They may look alike but not like the identical twins,more like siblings.
They can be same/different sex.
This type is more common

#History of Pakistan’s Proxy War in #Kashmir
#Thread
1.
1.Three unsuccessful wars of 1947,1965 & 1971 made #Pakistan realize that annexation of #Kashmir was a tough nut to crack through conventional wars after which it resorted to its tried & tested means of Proxy war... ImageImage
2.
..which it had used in #Afghanistan (Operation GIBRALTAR) with a strategy of 'bleeding India by a thousand cuts'. However, the action started in #Kashmir only after 1987 due to its involvement in #Afghanistan
3.
The late President Zia-ul-Haq code named the #Proxy war as Operation #TOPAC as it was his brain child for annexation of Kashmir through an amalgam of subterfuge, subversion, force & religious fundamentalism.. Image

Hi #twitterstorians! This is the second installment on #Srinivas. Today we focus on his concept of #sanskritization
which was key in the development of Indian #anthropology and #sociology.This is part of our history of concepts. @UoMhistdept @LeedsUniHistory @CSMCH_Edin #AHRC
#Srinivas coined the term #sanskritization in the late 1940s and early 1950s while researching the Coorgs of South India. #Sankritization was used as a way to explain how certain groups like the Lingayats of Karnataka had move up in a caste structure that was supposed to be fixed Image
The main idea behind #sanskritization is that lower castes groups imitate and adopt Sanskritic culture and values. Along with economic and political power, eventually, #sanskritization would translate into ritual power too. This would make lower caste groups to move up socially

I had to fly this week due to a family need. Here is what I learned on my international and domestic flights returning to the US from the UK (thread):
#fridaymorning #FridayThoughts #friday #COVID19 #COVIDー19
1/ To be honest, I wasn't excited about re-entry to travel. It felt too soon. I travel A LOT, mostly international, and am more comfortable on a plane than in a car most often. Lets start w/ #Uber to Heathrow. Really nice driver, no PPE whatsoever. Then...
2/ My driver took my suitcase by the handle, placed it in trunk. Normally SO appreciated, but I cringed seeing his bare hands touch the handles without gloves. Yikes - the #NewNormal has me make a mental note to wipe down handles upon arrival at Heathrow.

#SupremeCourt declines to hear Harsh Mander today in his petition after SG Tushar Mehta adduces transcripts of his reported speech at #Jamia wherein he said there is no trust left in the courts & that ultimate justice has to be on the streets.

#CJI: We will sort this out first.
#SupremeCourt tells Mander's lawyer that if this is what he feels about the courts then it will have to be decided first whether he should be given a hearing at all.

A separate petition on #DelhiViolence to be heard now.
As advocate Karuna Nundy, appearing for Harsh Mander, seeks time to verify the alleged hate speech, SG Mehta says this is strange that he wants time for verifying his own speech but wants FIRs against everyone immediately.

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.
#RandomThoughts
Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

I want to create a thread of poems. Anyone interested in joining in? #Poetry #Poem #poetrycommunity #Friday #SpokenWord #artists
Self Pity.

A dusty path,
But there are cleaner routes,
Yet, you chose to be soiled with earth,
Standing mocked before elites,
Your confidence muffled by a swathe of flies,
Your nose piling up unused water that dripped down your jaw.

You chose to be robbed of choice.
Ambiguity

The mother of errors,
Always unknown,
Muddling right in a wrongful way,
Pointing evil in an unstoppable direction,
It never meant harm,
But brings blood to the table,
How did it nestle all alone?
Waving to no-one in motion?

Happy #Friday (weather in 🇭🇰gloom doomy like cloudy EM outlook). Some speculating on #China #USA talk (concession/negotiating style/respite coming?). No answer here but u know what @Trinhnomics thinks (USD liquidity more key). Let's look at cultural diff in negotiations!
American vs. Chinese negotiation:

1) American is direct (all cards on table - Trump wanting concessions on investment & trade) v. Chinese moderate & moralistic (protectionism bad etc/US the bully)

2) Both escalate/louder but Americans spell out what they want but China less so
3) Next, Americans tend to confront & provoke via sarcasm & jokes why deals aren't reached while in China people tend to us TOUGH TALK & position of POWER (China saying it will not back down etc while Trump provokes).

4) The differences is how a RESOLUTION is reached

.@ChuckGrassley @realDonaldTrump @POTUS

IMO: we need MUCH TOUGHER laws on illegal-drug financing, manufacturing & whole-sale level distribution along with RICO enforcement. Retail level distribution & use consequences MUST BE DEFINITIVE and EQUITABLE in application across US.
.@ChuckGrassley @realDonaldTrump @POTUS

DEFINITIVE and EQUITABLE means that you can not throw the poor, the black, & other minorities in JAIL and the rich-white-kid gets help thanks to lawyers & parents.

Statistics suggest Lady Justice is NOT blind; that's a problem.
.@ChuckGrassley @realDonaldTrump @POTUS

Illegal-Drugs are harmful & deadly (like alcohol & cigarettes); some limited medical or recreational use.

Re-classify drugs as: NO-Medical-Approval-Drugs (NOMAD) for ATF sale (COMPETE, TAX, REGISTER, TRACK, EDUCATE, CONTROL & REDUCE USE).
