@TuckerCarlson, diversity starts in nature. Science has proven that lack of diversity results in deformation and failure to evolve. An Olympic-sized gene pool is unquestionably better for life than a tiny, muddy puddle.
But let's move beyond science.
@ndrew_lawrence@TuckerCarlson Diversity in the workforce drives success. Why do "think-tanks" exist? Simple—to bring disparate ideas to the table, examine their merits, and promote goals which stand the best chance of being successful. People who think differently stir imagination and creativity.
@ndrew_lawrence@TuckerCarlson Want proof of that? Look at the open-source community, which has brought amazing (and often free) software to consumers. Everything from Mozilla Firefox to Wikipedia to Linux—all from open-source, and benefitting from programmers worldwide working together for a better product.
Everything he writes resonates with the weight of our daily troubles.
Even as @BorisJohnson issues lazy, reckless & empty rhetoric, Hussein’s words remind us not only that Johnson’s like are morally cowardly, but also dangerous. Frothing, but incapable of advancing us. /2
As a Myanmar court sentences 2 @Reuters journalists to prison terms for exposing horrific crimes, as journalism is weighted down again as a crime, Hussain’s words resonate in a world busy with words, not actions.
“What are we saying to the perpetrators? Or to the victims?”
“I wish to emphasize the importance of ensuring that any relevant definitions adopted and employed by #Facebook are compatible with standards set by international law, including international #humanrights law and international humanitarian law.”
“It undermines the ability of #Facebook to push back against the efforts of governments to impose ever broader definitions of terrorism…when the standard is not tied closely to standards in #humanrights law and other international instruments.”
I want to be clear, opposition to the #sealhunt is #WhiteSupremacist and #racist in nature. It is absolutely clear to me that, at best, organizations like @peta ignore their impact on #Inuit. At worst, they're party to an intended programme of starvation.
In the entire course of her documentary, @Alethea_Aggiuq tried meeting with #vegan and #animalrights activists to discuss their impact on #indigenous communities. Every single attempt at communication was met with silence or avoidance.
Khomeini deployed Iran's classic army & units of the recently established Revolutionary Guards (IRGC), accompanied with a number of so-called judges to the #Kurdistan region to carry out the attack & launch summary executions.
Khomeini raised preposterous accusations against Iran's #Kurdish community, saying “opponents of Islam seek to spread atheism in the country,” giving a green light for his forces to bomb Kurdish cities & villages.
Many innocent people were executed in such scenes...

CATALUÑA – DERECHO A LA AUTODETERMINACIÓN comunicats.cat/cataluna-derec…
"En este artículo queremos exponer los argumentos favorables a que podemos acogernos como pueblo para ejercer este derecho universal y democrático. Definimos y mostramos cuáles pueden ser los argumentos a debatir."
Although Mr Assange's conditions were already harsh, having no sunlight or outdoor exercise since June 2012, his situation has gotten worse since Mar 27 when the Ecuadorian govt imposed conditions that are like indefinite confinement.
These matters of removal of basic rights of speech, information,liberty, persecution & silencing of journalists etc are of fundamental importance to all of us who believe in free & democratic society.
The full details of the Presidential directives on #OverhaulSARS as issued by AgP @ProfOsinbajo & content of the new FSARS Organizational Policy Framework & Operational Guidelines & Procedures designed by #OverhaulSARS Committee was shared with the officers for strict compliance.
Only competent officers will remain as Commanders in new FSARS, those not measuring up to acceptable standard will be redeployed and new courageous officers will be posted as replacements. Many of the personnel inherited will be posted out of FSARS. – CP Haliru Gwandu, CP FSARS.

2/ Invest in MEDIA LITERACY + RESILIENCE/discernment for news consumers - how to spot both individual items of synthetic media (e.g. via visible anomalies such as mouth distortion often present in current deepfakes) as well as develop approaches to assessing image credibility
2/We've had fake images and CGI for years, so what's different now (beyond enabling us to transplant Nicolas Cage's face to other people). The ease of making #deepfakes is captured by the vlogger Tom Scott
3/ = Barriers to entry to manipulate audio and video are falling - costs less, needs less tech expertise, uses open-source code + cloud computing power. Plus, sophistication of manipulation of social media spaces by bad actors makes it easier to weaponize and to micro-target.
