Of 527 pages on acquittal of Tarun Tejpal, #Goa judge Kshama M Joshi has used around 400 pages, dissecting testimony of the complainant in arriving at how an 'educated journalist' should've known whether she 'pulled up' her underwear or 'picked up'.
Goa court scans the complainant's phone & messages to note that "it was entirely the norm" for her to have flirtatious relationships & sexual conversations with friends & acquaintances.
Since she refused to give access to her email citing concerns of privacy when her phone details had already been used to humiliate her over her personal details, #Goa judge holds that she "wants to hide something."

Our petition has asked the State of #Goa to acknowledge and solve the following:
1. Share where are 200 ventilators that were purchased from PM CARES funds being occupied, & since there's a shortage despite that, share the steps to fix it.
2. Make beds availability public.
Not only tell people beds are available, but also specify what types of beds - oxygen, ICU, ventilator, or COVID Care?
3. Acknowledge the crunch of Oxygen, regulators, and even oximeters (that are missing from govt home quarantine kits now). Share the plan of action to fix this.
4. Acknowledge or counter if the hospitals are running out of staff, as increasing beds means nothing if there isn't enough personnel to attend to the patients. How does State plan to fix this issue?
5. Delayed testing & plan of action to fix. Currently, RT PCR takes 5-6 days.

A #thread on our recent paper in @PLOSNTDs examining ecological #evidence-base for #DiseaseControl management practices for #KyasanurForestDisease #AcademicTwitter #Scicomm #OneHealth; paper led by @SarahBurthe from @MonkeyFever_ consortium
#Diseasecontrol strategies originate through endorsements by Governments/academia/authorities; they're often not field-tested robustly; even when they are, evidence is limited to one sector (cf. #OneHealth #Intersectoral approaches);
#publichealth approaches ought to be contextual & their effectiveness ought to be evaluated, yet strategies for disease control often spread through word of mouth and are sometimes untested;

When I first came to Goa, in order to stay here 'long'; i made companionship with a villager far away from shoreline. we used to frequent the same 'den'.

i was shocked when he told me, he had high BP.

i mean, how can you live in paradise and suffer from hypertension?
But since then, I have been wiser.

Goa could very well be the 'Diabetes Capital' of India, if you take the quantum of population effected by it.

And it's certainly man-made, because Diabetes is a lifestyle disease and so is Hypertension.

All about the choices you make !
In #Goa , Hypertension is called 'Pressure' fondly.

Unbelievably, people take so much pride in having this morbid slow& silent death.

Because if you have 'Pressure', you must have a lot to worry about, which means, you have a lot to 'do' about, which means you are 'big shot'

1/4 This family heirloom was stolen in #Goa in June 2020. There is a slim chance that it will be recovered, but my late grandma would be sad if we didn’t try. Please retweet. @thatdoggonelady @smitagnair @vmingoa @alakasahani @PoonamSaxena_ @prudentgoa @oheraldogoa @Navhind_Times
2/4 The gold chain & pendant in the photo were also stolen. They must have been melted down by now. But we suspect it will be difficult for the criminals to dispose of the larger necklace because it will be difficult to melt down (the gold balls are gold leaf on some kind of wax)
3/4 My mother has somewhat reconciled to the loss of her valuables, but the fact that this heirloom was taken is upsetting. It has been handed down from matriarch to matriarch over the generations. According to family tradition, it rightfully belongs to my 11-year-old niece.

The Inquisition, was a group of institutions within the Catholic Church whose aim was to combat heresy. The Inquisition of Goa was the most horrific of all the Inquisition in the world.

Francis Xavier who is considered by Christian religious leaders as a saint and a miraculous person, landed in Goa on 6th May 1542 with a resolve to uproot paganism from Indian soil and replacing it with Christianity.
And so all plans of persecution and oppression of the Hindus came along with him. All religious policies and procedures of forcible and fraudulent conversions and demolitions of the Hindu Temples and idols were undertaken under his guidance and missionary zeal.

After defection politics of 90s, mining lease imbroglio, untimely demise of a political colossus, trend of midnight mergers Goa, has been hurtling from crisis to crisis when #COVID19Pandemic hit. On #goastatehoodday, I pray for all #Goenkars to unite for restoring Goa's glory.
Goa is fortunate to have the sage advice of many senior leaders & dynamic young like @DrPramodPSawant @visrane @VijaiSardesai @sidkuks @RohanKhaunte @ReginaldoGoa who need to work like force multipliers on a war footing to deliver Goa out of this unprecedented multipronged crisis
#Goenkars & balanced members of media like @PramodGoa @sandeshgoa among others, must exert enough pressure to put governance delivery firmly on the forefront & avoid cynicism, paranoia & clamour for financially profligate packages. Good governance will take care in due time.
