ಇಂದು ದೇಶಾದ್ಯಂತ ಹಾಗೂ ನಮ್ಮ ರಾಜ್ಯಾದ್ಯಂತ ಆಚರಿಸುತ್ತಿರೋ “ವನ್ಯಜೀವಿ ಸಪ್ತಾಹ” ಕ್ಕೆ ನಮ್ಮ ತೀವ್ರ ವಿರೋಧವಿದೆ….!

ರಾಜ್ಯಪಾಲರು, ಅರಣ್ಯಮಂತ್ರಿಗಳು, ಅರಣ್ಯ ಪಡೆಯ ಮುಖ್ಯಸ್ಥರು ಇಂದು ಬೆಂಗಳೂರಿನಲ್ಲಿ ನಡೆದ ಕಾರ್ಯಕ್ರಮದಲ್ಲಿ ಹೇಳಿದ್ದು: 👇👇👇👇( ದಯವಿಟ್ಟು ಓದಿ )🙏🙏🙏 Retweet ಮಾಡಿ ImageImageImageImage
ನಿಮಗೆ ತಿಳಿದಿರುವಂತೆ ಈ ಎಲ್ಲಾ ಯೋಜನೆಗಳು ನಮ್ಮ ಪಶ್ಚಿಮಘಟ್ಟದೊಳಗಿನ ಅತೀಸೂಕ್ಷ್ಮ ಪರಿಸರ ವಲಯದಲ್ಲಿಯೇ ಬರುತ್ತವೆ. ಹಾವನ್ನು ಕುರಿತಾಗಿ, ಕಪ್ಪೆಗಳ ಅಧ್ಯಯನ ಹೀಗೇ ನಾನಾ ರೀತಿಯ ಸಂಶೋಧನೆ ಮಾಡುತ್ತಿರುವ ನೀವುಗಳು ಯಾಕೆ ಇಂತಹ ಯೋಜನೆಗಳನ್ನು ವಿರೋಧಿಸ್ತಿಲ್ಲ? ಮುಂದೆ ಈ ಯೋಜನೆಗಳೆಲ್ಲಾ ನಡೆದುಹೋದರೆ ನಿಮಗೆ ನಮಗೆ ಕುಡಿಯೋಕೇ ನೀರು ಸಿಗಲ್ಲ…!
ಉಸಿರೇ ಇರಲ್ಲ…! ಇನ್ನು ಕಪ್ಪೆ ಹಾವು ಚಿಟ್ಟೆಗಳ ಮಾತೆಲ್ಲಿ ಬಂತು?

ವನ್ಯಜೀವಿ ಕಾಯ್ದೆ ಎಲ್ಲಿದೆ?
ಅರಣ್ಯನೀತಿ ಎಲ್ಲಿದೆ?
ಮಾಧವ್ ಗಾಡ್ಗೀಳ್ ವರದಿಗಳು ಎಲ್ಲಿ ಹೋದವು? ಅವುಗಳನ್ನು ಸಂಪೂರ್ಣವಾಗಿ ಜಾರಿಮಾಡುವುದು ಮತ್ತು ಅದರಂತೆ ಕಾನೂನು ಕಾಪಾಡುವುದು ಯಾರ ಕೆಲಸ? ಸರ್ಕಾರದವರು ಎಡವಿದಾಗ ನಿಮ್ಮಂತವರು ಎಚ್ಚರಿಸಬೇಕಲ್ಲವೇ?

GANDBHERUNDA SCULPTURE, KELLADI RAMESHWARA TEMPLE , KELLADI, DIST SHIVAMOGGA, KARNATAKA
The Gandaberunda or Berunda is a two-headed bird in Hindu mythology, believed to possess immense magical strength. It is an avatar of Lord Vishnu to fight Lord Sharabha, who in-turn was an
avatar of Lord Shiva and had the mission of stopping Narasimha, Vishnu's lion avatar. It was the emblem of the erstwhile Kingdom of Mysore under the Wodeyar kings. It is used as the official emblem of the Karnataka state government because it is a symbol of strength.
The bird is generally depicted as clutching elephants in its talons and beaks, demonstrating its immense strength. In a coin [Kasu] found in Madurai, it is shown holding a snake in its beak. All 2-dimensional depictions show a symmetrical image similar to the Double-headed eagle

Essential government benefits cannot be made conditional on vaccination status!

'No vaccination, no pension,' a #Karnataka Deputy Commissioner had said — and we followed up on its legal basis.

Could there be one? Follow this thread 👇🏽 1/n
internetfreedom.in/vaccines-shoul…
It was reported that for BPL & anthyodaya cardholders, vaccination was compulsory to receive benefits. In the face of outrage, the #Karnataka DC clarified that no such order was passed. While this immediate threat has diminished, we've seen multiple such statements recently. 2/n
In the present context of the COVID-19 pandemic, to deny people essential rations (or other government benefits) for being unvaccinated would only exacerbate the existing food and nutrition crisis.

IMPORTANT: Are such steps even legal? We broke it down for you. 🧵 3/n Similar statements have been given in recent times:  5 April

Besides #GlobalWarming, another threat looms over the Thwaites glacier (aka #DoomsdayGlacier): Earth’s natural, internal heat. It has the potential to speed up the melting of this glacial mass! #ClimateChange

weather.com/en-IN/india/en…

(📸: Alfred-Wegener-Institut/Thomas Ronge) Image
Nestled at the heart of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, the Thwaites glacier is hailed as a global threat due to its size. Its area is equivalent to the Indian state of #Karnataka's i.e., almost 192,000 sq km.

If it melts, it could submerge several coastal areas around the world!
Scientists have long suspected that the Earth’s natural heat comes in touch with the surface of this region.

This is because West #Antarctica is stacked on a tectonic mass that's just 17 to 25 km thick! In comparison, the East side is as thick as 40 km.

This tweet thread is about the results from the second serosurvey done in the #Karnataka state. Ahead of sharing the link, some caveats first.
1. The @DHFWKA has used the data from this round of serosurvey in late March to update testing and surveillance strategies.

1 of N
2. The study found Lower levels of IgG seroprevalence, mostly due to antibody waning.
3. A substudy was done to confirm the antibody waning. This study was delayed due to rapid surge of cases in April.
4. We found near 0 prevalence of active cases during mid-February 2021.

Benford's Law is very popular in catching up the wrongdoings in the numbers or finding the anomalies in the numbers.

Many developed countries used Benford's Law to find data fudging in Taxes, social media fake profile detection, finding digital frauds etc.

(1/n)

#BenfordLaw
But did anyone try to run Benford's Law on the #Covid19 numbers of Indian States ?

I am not sure, but I tried to put these numbers together which i have collected online from various open-source sources. These are the combined numbers of 1st and 2nd wave.

(2/n)

#BenfordLaw
I am not claiming if these numbers are real, because I have collected these numbers form open sources over internet.
Also, I am not claiming if #BenfordLaw is most accurate in finding the fraud.

I am just sharing the outcome of Benford's law.

Doddappa temple, Adargunchi #Karnataka

Many #Jain temples in Karnataka were converted into Veerashaivite/Lingayat temples. Either the Jina idol was uprooted & Linga was placed or it was converted into a Veershaivite or it was taken off the Main shrine & placed at the entrance.
Built sometime between 10th & 11th century, the temple today is fronted by a stone sculpture of the bull Nandi and houses a massive black stone statue of a Jina, placed alongside a Shiva linga (phallus, the form in which Lingayats worship Shiva).
The entire temple was re-built during the Virashaiva takeover of the basadi. Instead of removing the idol, they converted it & retained it as a sign of domination and control, thereby sending a clear signal of Virashaiva’s triumph over Jainism.

Excess deaths in #Karnataka were nearly 6 times (5.77) the COVID19 death toll from April 2020 to May 2021. That's close to the undercount factor in Tamil Nadu (6.2). My colleague Sharath S & I find based on monthwise #CRS data from 2015 to 2021 (1/n) thehindu.com/news/national/…
Karnataka recorded an estimated 1,67,888 excess deaths over the baseline mortality for five years (2015-19) in the pre-pandemic years. Graph shows the excess deaths peaks both in the 1st and in the 2nd wave (2/n)
Here's a comparison with the estimated undercount factors in other States for whom a similar exercise was done. #excessdeaths. Karnataka and Tamil Nadu with an undercount factor of 4.7/6.5 were better off than A.P. (34) & MP (42) for similar periods (3/n)
