The humiliation of defeat at the hands of a small ruler kittur was too much for d British to swallow. They brought in bigger armies.
The valiant Channammar & her soldiers defended d fort for 12 days but defeated in 1824 CE becoz of traitor and was prisoned in Bailhongal fort.

ADA defines a Service Dog as a dog individually trained to do work/perform tasks for 1-person w/ a disability. The task(s) must be directly related to the person's disability. I know 145 diff. commands but what I do specifically for Mom is mobility assist & medical alert #dogs White fluffy Golden retriever dog wearing a red and black seWhite fluffy Golden retriever dog wearing a red service dog
There are a lot of things that go along with those commands. I can pick up things from the floor so Mom doesn't have to lean over. If she leans over b/c of her brain injury, she could get dizzy and pass out and get really hurt. What I do keeps that from happening #TBI #servicedog White fluffy Golden retriever dog wearing a red service dog White fluffy Golden retriever dog wearing a red service dog
I can stand between Mom & big crowds or in line between her and people b/c her PTSD makes social interaction hard. What I do gives her space so she doesn't feel crowded. This makes her feel safe and she can stay in places like work events, in grocery stores, or restaurants. #PTSD White fluffy Golden retriever dog wearing a red service dog White fluffy Golden retriever dog wearing a red service dog

Hi #twitterstorians this is part 3 of our thread on #Srinivas work. We focus on his views on #anthropology as a discipline linked to the nation. If you would like to see more about #Srinivas writings you can check our blog on #rememberedvillage 👇
theotherfromwithin.com/post/the-remem…
#Srinivas considered that #anthropology was a #colonial tool of governance that used used to 'divide and rule'. His views on the #census as a political tool anticipated the views of scholars such as #Cohn and #Dirks
However, for #Srinivas this was a doubled edged sword. Indian nationalists used the categories politicized by colonial rulers to 'discover' India's past and to create myths in the struggle for #independence

Dear diary,
I know no matter what, I must put my feelings aside and never be aggressive to a person. It's part of being a service dog.
But right now I wish I was allowed to take a big crap on the steps of the #AlbertaLegislature to show my disgust. The humans ... 1/9
that have the privilege to represent #Alberta citizens are preaching #inclusion and promising to tear down #barriers and tackle systemic #discrimination are the same people that let my mistress slip through the cracks and are why we live in nearly complete #segregation from...2/9
our community. They claim to promote #inclusion and #independence of the disabled with their tax payer funded program to provide essential #mobility equipment, like the power wheelchair my mistress needs so we can leave our home without human assistance. More than a year...3/9

.@ja_sheldon discusses the challenges the current parliament faces on Scottish #independence 👇 @LSEpoliticsblog

centreonconstitutionalchange.ac.uk/news-and-opini…
In 2014 @David_Cameron thought that a referendum should be held in light of the majority @theSNP won in 2011. Of course, the context is quite different now – Cameron expected the pro-Union side to win comfortably when the 2014 #referendum was agreed
the fact that support for #independence has remained consistent at around (and at times above) the level of the 45% @YesScot vote in 2014 means that granting a referendum would now be a far riskier proposition for an avowedly unionist Prime Minister.

In her Hogmanay speech @NicolaSturgeon stated: "We will provide support and reassurance for the #EUcitizens who have done us the honour of choosing to make #Scotland their home."

Here is how we can begin to constructively fulfill that promise: docs.google.com/document/d/1rG…
1. EU citizens will face discrimination by Brexit/HostileEnv design. Those who have Settled Status need a physical token not offered by the Home Office but any individuals status can be checked online - including by @scotgov who should issue a #ScottishResidencyCard open to all.
2. All residents of #Scotland are equally affected by Scots Law, yet not all are protected by it. For 2020 I hope to see an all-party, multi-disciplinary Equality workgroup at the Scottish parliament finding & using Scots law & powers to enhance equality and protect all Scots.

ANALYSING THE MANIFESTOS

Throughout #GeneralElection2019 we will analyse where the parties stand on constitutional issues. Following the launch #LabourManifesto @UKLabour @Coree_Brown looks at their commitments ⬇

centreonconstitutionalchange.ac.uk/news-and-opini…
@UKLabour #manifesto sets out their social and economic programmes and their plan for #Brexit. However, engagement with the broader #constitutional questions facing the #UK are minimal.
#Constitutional issues are detailed at the back. Abolish the @UKHouseofLords replace it with a Senate, and hold a #constitutional convention to address some of the thorny issues, all of which have been included in previous manifestos.

The Home Office yesterday said that 2million of the (HO guesstimate) 3.3million #EUcitizens in the UK have now applied for Settled Status. Digging into those statistics in regards to #Scotland - bearing in mind there are no reliable UK immigration stats - reveals the following:
Going by 2017 NRS data there were 239,000 🇪🇺 #NewScots in Scotland. Subtracting the 21,000 Irish-born EU nationals (whose residency rights aren't depending on EU citizenship = No need for SS applications) that leaves us with 218,000 #NewScots required to apply for Settled Status.
Previous to @patel4witham "FoM will end on October 31st" misleading dogwhistling exercise only ONE in five 🇪🇺#NewScots had applied for Settled Status (despite ~ £5 @scotgov spend per head on access to SS info). Contrast this with 1 in 3 for rUK (with only ~£3 pp UKgov spend).

The recognition of the political nature of health & appreciation of the political determinants of health are key to better understanding despair & health inequality, as well as our shared responsibility to ensure the conditions under which people can enjoy hope & health equity. Image
The decline in life expectancy is occurring in part due to deaths from despair. From 2007 - 2017, the mortality rate from drug overdoses increased 82% while suicide rates increased 24%.

Many problems associated with poor health stem from lower incomes.
Image
“...it is essential to rethink the hegemonic discourse of the right to health so that it becomes a first-class human right intrinsically coupled to the other social, political and economic rights.”

A short positive thread on #CitizensAssemblies 👇
I’ve put a lot of effort into arguing the case for a #CitizensAssembly in Scotland & I’m totally committed to having a gold standard process
I stand by my comments that the #CitizensAssembly is a good way forward for Scotland in the #Brexit crisis. I see the ultimate destination as #independence. Others disagree. That’s the joy of democracy

THREAD FOR #JULY4th   and DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE
Here's the real story of the Declaration of Independence:
For 17 days, the thirty-three-year-old secluded himself in a rented room in Philadelphia.
On a small, portable desk, he began writing, laying the foundations of this new American government. Unlike every nation before it, this country’s heart would not beat with the blood of royal lines. This would be a nation based on ideals.
It took Thomas Jefferson seventeen days to find the right words. Seventeen days of writing and rewriting before he nervously presented his document to John Adams and Benjamin Franklin.
