Grosse ambiance de travail aujourd'hui puisque je décide de me lancer parallèlement dans la série à succès Game of Thrones que finalement peu de gens connaissent. Je vous ferai part de mes réactions au fur et à mesure.
Ha ben super tout le monde est découpé en deux, bonne ambiance.
Ned Stark il faudrait qu'il apprenne à faire un peu plus confiance aux gens et à ouvrir son coeur à l'inconnu parce que là à force de couper des têtes, son image va en prendre un coup.

Haré un hilo de lo que fue mi viaje por Europa. En realidad de lo que esta siendo, ya que escribo esto por las noches al llegar al hostel de turno. No se si lo publicaré durante el viaje o al llegar sr a Buenos Aires.
Esto es a modo de recuerdo para mi, una suerte de diario de viaje. Pero pueden leerlo.
Viernes 15 a las 2 de la tarde, salimos. Avion de Alitalia (afortunadamente no era un Boening 737) rumbo a Roma, sin escalas. Exceptuando a la pequeña que no paro de gritar todo el viaje.Llegada a Fiumicino el sabado a las 7 am y tren hasta Termini.

#FunFact Congress which is trending hashtags against Modi did not enact any tax incentives for businesses which generated jobs. It was Vajpayeeji's Govt that enacted #Section80JJAA of Income-Tax Act in 1998. Of course, it was applicable to factory jobs only
UPA amended it in 2013 and limited deductions to Indian companies only . Then Modi Govt COMPLETELY rewrote the section in 2016 to extend the incentives for job creation to all sectors including non-corporates
Thanks to the 2016 rewrite by Modi Govt. Form NO DA audit reports from CAs which are required to be e-filed for claiming #80JJAA when aggregated will give a fair idea of formal sector jobs created for FYs 2016-17 onwards

I haven't slept in a couple days (don't ask) because reasons), but I am pretty amped up about the class I'll be teaching in a couple hours.

It should be pretty fun. The syllabus says "Iconoclasm & Islam," and on my syllabi, titles like that geneeeeerally mean: BAIT AND SWITCH.
One fun part of this class will entail showing students a (yes, safe) ISIS clip of what we would generally call 'iconoclasm' (actually really, extremely limited in number, proportionally - considering how prolific they are, and in a variety of media topics, themes, and genres)
Basically, that should get them talking about what I expect them to think and say as interdisciplinary / intermediate students without backgrounds, for the most part, in Art History and/or "The Middle East."

Rapport au parlement du Comité Ethique et Scientifique de Parcoursup.
Un très bonne lecture pour faire le point sur ce qu'est #Parcoursup.
Thread ⬇️
Le rapport précise d'entrée qu'il travaille "à droit constant". C'est clair : il ne remettra pas en cause les décisions de la ministre.
Ce cadre est immédiatement appuyé par le point qui fait le plus mal : le secret des méthodes de classement des candidatures par les formations.
Les rapporteurs appuient également sur le fait que #Parcousup est mis en oeuvre dans un système tout pété par des décisions politiques et qu'il est illusoire d'espérer qu'il réparer quoi que ce soit.
(C'est crucial de bien le comprendre, on y reviendra)

#FunFact: When he was in the Wisconsin legislature, Glenn Grothman tried to eliminate weekends
So let's not be shocked that a legislator who was against giving workers weekends became a congressman who doesn't think ones furloughed because of his party's recklessness should get paid

Today is a significant day for the Niger Delta. Commencement of Handover of sites to qualified contractors in first phase of remediation of 21 lots across the 4 LGAs of Ogoniland. Handover will be followed by mobilization of equipment & personnel to sites for the actual clean-up.
Of course some will ask ‘Why now?’ Answer: If you’ve followed the Clean Up news you’ll realize that the procurement process (by which these contractors were selected) has been ongoing for a while.
Has taken time cos:
1. Remediation is major work
2. Procurement is time-consuming
[When I say remediation is major work I mean to say the ‘Clean Up’ is not ‘environmental sanitation’. It’s a complex technical endeavor

NB. Alongside Remediation work, there will be work along the lines of provision of potable water, livelihood training & health impact studies.]

#FunFact Matthew Whitaker was nominated and confirmed unanimously and without objection by Senate in 2004. Some familiar names back then right @SenSchumer?
This is the same Senate that confirmed Kavanaugh back then BTW😂

@sarahbosetti @andreolejko Also gut: Spaß beiseite und Mansplainingmodus, da Sie offensichtlich nicht im geringsten verstanden haben, worum es überhaupt geht:
@sarahbosetti @andreolejko Ihr Tweet ergäbe nur Sinn, wenn man die Solidarität innerhalb eines Volkes vollständig aufkündigte. #Funfact: Der Begriff »deutsches Volk« ist keine Nazikackscheisze, sondern gehört zur DNS des Grundgesetzes.
@sarahbosetti @andreolejko Eine solche Aufkündigung der natürlichen Solidarität innerhalb einer Volksgemeinschaft wäre aber nicht nur GG-widrig, sondern auch höchst einseitig: Für die Vergewaltiger bleiben der Volksbegriff nämlich durchaus bestehen und sie vergewaltigen auch nicht national blind:

#FunFact yerkurenin biyosferindeki yekûn karbon çekerine (550 gigaton Karbon) baktigimizda, insanlar olarak agirlikca %0,01 gibi anormal ufak bi kutleye tekabul ediyoruz. virus agirligi 3,5 mislimiz. bakteriler ise 1160 kat daha agir cekiyorlar. peh!

daha ilginci, dunya uzerinde yasamis/ölmüs/mevcutta yasayan 108 milyar insanin biyokutlesi dahi, bugunku mantar biyokutlesi etmiyor. hatta mantarlar hala 10 kat fazla.
sonuç; homosapiens have never been kalıbının adamı

Here's former President Obama having a reporter removed for interrupting him "in his house" the press claps wildly, even starts chanting Obama's name while the reporter is being removed for yelling "NO MORE DEPORTATIONS" #KaitlanCollins cc: @BretBaier
2015 Washington Free Beacon's Adam Kredo ejected from a State Department media briefing in Vienna and senior department officials threatened to call security on him, without him even saying a word. Had to control that #IranDeal narriative #KaitlanCollins washingtonexaminer.com/state-official…
2012 @politico called interrupting the President a "surprising breach of etiquette" and later the reporter from @DailyCaller was "urged" to and DID apologize to then President Obama #KaitlanCollins politico.com/blogs/politico…

tl;dr: Ich suche (mal wieder) 1 Stelle als iOS-Entwickler, 30 Stunden bzw. 4 Tage/Woche in Berlin, remote habe ich (noch) keine Erfahrung. CV: bullenscheisse.de/about/CV_Natha…
Wenn ihr jemanden kennt, der jemanden kennt... Ach, ihr wisst schon: Teilen gibt gutes Karma.

Liebe Leute, manche von euch wissen, dass ich seit 1.6. eine neue Stelle habe. Nach eineinhalb Jahren Teilzeit arbeite ich wieder Vollzeit und mir wird immer mehr klar, dass das etwas ist, was ich weder kann noch möchte.
Eigentlich wollte ich die sechs Monate Probezeit abwarten, aber ich merke jetzt schon: Das halte ich nicht durch. Ich bin gestresst, gereizt ohne Ende und unglücklich. Das wirkt sich auf mein Privatleben aus und das ist mir wichtiger als ein Job.

🚧 1.Let's take a little trip down memory lane @NancyPelosi @SenSchumer @SenGillibrand because it appears as though you may have a memory problem. In 2014 there were children in cages, 80% of which weren't even receiving adequate food and water #AbolishICE #WomenDisobey
2. 2014 Brian Williams reported on 52k children cramped into small facilities and while "taking children from Mothers" is never said listen closely when they say ADULTS are deported, kids stay? @NBCNews knows this and it was @RepMcCaul (R) that was worried #KeepFamiliesTogether
3. The @ACLU wrote to the Obama Admin in 2014 complaining children, including infants were starved, kept in "freezers" and sexually abused they included 116 confessions from children. #KeepFamiliesTogether acluaz.org/sites/default/…

A Thread of What's Wrong With The 1Malaysia Logo:
1. Inconsistent Design
if you Google Image '1Malaysia', this is what you see - a bunch of similar but inconsistent bunch of logo. unprofessional.

properly designed logo comes a guideline so such bad cloning will not happen. eg. Rotary Visual Guideline, Twitter Brand Guideline
mind you, this logo was used nationwide, for years. a huge amount of money was allocated for this product. it's printed everywhere, signage, banners, on book, on brochures, on buildings.

💰(1) @realDonaldTrump was being KIND when he called @SenFeinstein #SneakyDianneFeinstein it should’ve been slimy. For 40 yrs everyone’s turned a blind eye while she and hubby rob America blind and that’s no exaggeration. Let’s just start with America, Global will be later ⚖️
(2) If you didn’t know #SneakyDianneFeinstein is married to Richard aka Dick Blum he’s a billionaire however sweet, little, Dianne is a measly millionaire BUT together they just happen to be #slumlords they made a killing during the housing crisis!
(3) #SneakyDianneFeinstein has funny habit of always saying “she has no idea what her husband is doing” or it’s silly anyone could think there’s a conflict of interest. To help cope with all these unpleasant details we’ll use her own financial disclosures #slumlord #seabove

Je découvre avec bonheur que Maman a acheté des verres de ce type, ce qui m’amène à vous faire un thread sur

LE CÉLÈBRE VERRE À FACETTES SOVIÉTIQUE
Le verre à facettes (гранёный стакан) a été créé pendant le blocus de Leningrad (1943) par Vera Moukhina, la sculptrice qui a aussi fait « Le travailleur et la kolkhozienne ». D’ailleurs, si on empile 476 verres ça fait la même hauteur !!! #coïncidence???
La valeur de ces verres à facettes soviétiques dépendait du nombre de facettes mais ils faisaient toujours la même contenance, une contenance d’ailleurs idéale pour partager une bouteille de vodka à 3 quand Khrouchtchev en eut interdit la vente par quantité libre

📍(1) “O, what a tangled web we weave when first we practise to deceive” the story of Google, Perkins Coie, CrowdStrike, Fusion GPS, Clinton, Soros and many other players. To begin, Google has been a client of #PerkinsCoie for quite a long time..
(2) #Google has a very close relationship with Clinton, it goes all the way back to her days as Secretary of State. Not only did they donate heavily to her campaign they also support the Clinton Foundation. In fact the boss even made her campaign plan.
(3) During the campaign Google and Perkins Coie just happened to partner together to release a tool designated to drive voter turnout. “Partnering” seems like a strange term considering they have long worked together.
