die komplette Pressekonferenz vom 09.11.1989, Schabowski (DDR) ist seit kurzem @YouTube: #mauerfall30 #BerlinWall30 #Mauerfall hab's mir eben angesehen: bizarr, aufschlussreich, die bürokratische Rationalität am Werk
@YouTube draußen fliegt ihnen der Staat um die Ohren, und sie: Parteikonferenz einberufen, "es haben bis jetzt 16 Diskussionsredner das Wort ergriffen"... es ist alles sehr kompliziert Hilfsausdruck
@YouTube ab min 33:55 bericht zu genossen modrows Referat über die anstehenden Wirtschaftsreformen, der habe nämlich darin schon "die Konturen einer Art Regierungserklärung durchblicken lassen" auf Basis "einer kritischen und gründlichen Analyse unserer wirtschaftlichen Situation"

[#VeilleESR #FunFact] La notion de « gel de poste » dans les établissements de l'ESR n'existe plus que dans les esprits depuis le passage aux RCE (Responsabilités et Compétences Elargies).

Quelques rapides explications ⬇️
Avant, les postes étaient gérés par le ministère. C'est lui qui avait la masse salariale et faisait les fiches de paies.

Chaque année, les établissements faisaient remonter leurs besoins, et le ministère prenait les décisions de création, suppression, mise au concours ou gel.
Un « poste » était donc quelque chose de très important pour un établissement : c'était l'unité de calcul des moyens humains pour travailler.

Une création, c'était quelqu'un de plus. Une suppression, quelqu'un de moins. Une mise au concours, un nouveau qui remplaçait un ancien.

Shah Faesal's father was killed by militants when he was 19. He became a doctor, topped IAS. Is a Fulbright scholar at Harvard. Joined politics to serve people better. Believed in Indian democracy & inspired Kashmiris. Today he's *locked up* & called *anti national*

India, 2019
Shah Faesal is a Fulbright scholar at Harvard, visits it regularly. Was going there when he was detained at Delhi airport. Sanghis said he was fleeing the country, meeting "terrorists" at Turkey (he had a connecting flight) etc. Now Harvard has written to Modi seeking his release
#ShahFaesal was a doctor, IAS, politician, scholar, motivator. He father was killed by militants yet he chose the pen instead of a gun. He chose compassion over revenge. This man is a legend in Kashmir. Today he's called 'anti national' and we wonder why Kashmiris distrust India?

Der (gut gemeinte!) Faktencheck von @correctiv_org braucht leider einen #Faktencheck.

Vermeintliche Explosion sog. "Zuwandererkriminalität" seit 2014 ist dtl. unsinniger als in versuchter Replik auf Populisten dargestellt.

(1/8)

correctiv.org/faktencheck/mi…
Zunächst versucht @correctiv_org, Steigerung d. Straftaten durch Zuwanderer seit 2014 zu vergleichen mit Anstieg gemeldeter Zuwanderer in D.

@correctiv_org : 2014 gab es in D 750.000 Zuwanderer.

Bei @bka ist 2014er Zahl aber dtl. niedriger (Kumulation gelbe Linie).

(2/8)
Aus genau diesen (den eigenen. nicht denen des @bka!) vermeintlichen Anfangs- und Endwerten des Betrachtungszeitraums 2014-2018 zieht @correctiv_org sein Fazit (s.u.), fast alles daran ist sachlich falsch.

London's newest #Cycleway between New Malden and Raynes Park is now open! This is a (more than necessary) detailed thread reviewing it.
It is 1.2km long and starts next to New Malden Station, carries on parallel to the railway line, passing alongside Raynes Park recreation ground, connecting to Taunton Avenue and then along West Barnes Lane towards Raynes Park.
There is a 2.5m 2-way cycle track and a separate 2m wide path for for people walking all the way from near New Malden Station to Raynes Park recreation ground. Both paths have been laid very well and are really smooth👍 The middle verge was to be planted with wildflowers.

Raspoutine : un thread 🔥
Grégoire (en russe Grigorii) Raspoutine naît en 1869 dans un village perdu de Sibérie (voir sur la carte).
Il a un frère aîné, Michel, avec qui il fait les 400 coups, mais un jour les deux garçons tombent dans une rivière glacée et attrapent une grave pneumonie
Michel meurt, et Grégoire, que l’on croyait perdu aussi, se réveille finalement miraculeusement : la Sainte Vierge lui serait apparue pour lui dire de guérir. Grande émotion au village !

Der Arbeitskreis Verteidigung der @AfDimBundestag hat sein Papier zur "Streitkraft Bundeswehr. Der Weg zur Verteidigungsfähigkeit Deutschlands" vorgelegt. Ich werde versuchen, in diesem thread ( und bitte wirklich um Entschuldigung, wenn er zu lang geraten sollte), /2
die wichtigsten Aussagen wiederzugeben und das, ohne Schaum vor dem Mund. Aber ich werde sie natürlich auch bewerten. Zunächst einmal mein erster Eindruck. Das Papier richtet sich an die Soldat*Innen in der #Bundeswehr, es richtet sich weniger an eine breite Öffentlichkeit. /3
Damit scheint es mir Teil der Kampagne der AfD zu sein, sich als "Partei der Bundeswehr" zu profilieren. Kommen wir zum Inhalt. Ausgangspunkt ist die Beobachtung, das die Bundeswehr nach 1990 kaputtgespart wurde. Zunächst mal /4

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?

@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:

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…
