Engineering a City #thread
Having spent my entire childhood in #Kochi (#Cochin ), it feels criminal to not know the story of how the city came to be the #metropolis it is today. Putting together a thread to trace the journey of the city which has been so endearingly mine (1)
Part 1: The #Malabar Mud-Banks
The story of Cochin is not just about how an engineering marvel can change social fabric, but also of many tenets of #British #Colonialism in India which is often taken for granted, passed off lazily as exploitation, missing nuance (2)
As with any coastal town, the cultural and economic history of Kochi is intertwined with maritime trade routes since the time of the Early Romans and Arabs. Thanks to the #biennale , most of us would now be familiar with the term #Muzuris (3)

There is a huge amount of false and misleading information about #HS2 on social media. Below is a myth buster thread which corrects some of the most repeated misconceptions about the project…
Myth 1: ‘HS2 only saves 20 minutes to #Birmingham’. FACT: #HS2 services will call at 25 stations in England and Scotland connecting 30 million people. It also frees up space on the existing network for more frequent stopping local services benefiting those who may never use HS2.
HS2’s budget is spread over 30 years and evens out at less than the annual roads budget. We will support 30,000 jobs at least 2,000 of which will be apprenticeships. The arrival of #HS2 is spearheading economic growth and is expected to create nearly 500,000 jobs around stations.

A thread of all the immigrant food I have eaten in #London. The city has such diverse population and probably one of the best to try food from all over the world. They're mostly places that serve food under £10, most of them located in Central or North London So here it is!
Doubles at Roti Joupa

An Indo-Trinidadian street-snack/breakfast dish created by the descendent of Bihari indentured labourers. Two baras (what we call bhatura) with chana (chickpea) curry and chutneys between them. Imagine chole-bhature but with less masala.
The first time I read about this dish was in @tenderlymag. It's a fascinating story of diaspora food.

First #Jihadi #mujahideen warriors in #Bosnia 🇧🇦 began arriving in 1992. Firstly as a humanitarian workers, and later to become the martyrs on Allah´s road in #Bosnia. Their first camp was in village of #Mehurici and their 1st leader was Abu Abdel Aziz aka #Barbaros. ⬇️⬇️⬇️
The main financier of these warriors was Mohammed al-Fatih Hassaneyn from #Sudan 🇸🇩 who with his brother Sukarno founded #TWRA an NGO in #Vienna #Austria 🇦🇹 from where he transferred money and #Jihadi warriors to #Bosnia 🇧🇦.
In 1970´s Hassaneyn was Sudanese student in #Belgrade dentistry college where he used his free time to travel
through #Yugoslavia to visit his fellow Muslims. That´s how he met another student Alija Izetbegovic in #Sarajevo and new friendship started.

THREAD: #ndrangheta #mobility this week has been all around the news. Before getting caught up by hysteria over this #mafia being everywhere, let's look at the analysis of the facts. First, the 'ndrangheta is NOT one, it can ACT LIKE ONE in Calabria and only when needed.
2/ Unity is in 1) mafia behaviours, 2) family unity, 3) horizontal coordination in "dense" mafia territories. The peculiarity of the 'ndrangheta is that #ethnicity - Calabrianness - matters eormously for the resilience of the organisation, but NOT for criminal activities.
3/ in #Argentina arrests for drug trafficking involved an Italian in Buenos Aires, not Calabrian, an Argentinian of Italian descent, a man from Rosarno linked to the #Bellocco clan - this is business, not ethnicity. clarin.com/policiales/mod…

[3] Who says you can't do a bokeh effect filming on a smartphone? I shot this bit using an app called Focos Live, flagged up to me by BBC trainer @MarcSettle - it works for dual lens phones - I have iPhone 8 Plus

#Thread on Mushaal Mullick
1.
Mushaal Mullick is the wife of #terrorist turned separatist leader #YasinMalik . A #Pakistani by birth, she is often seen on SM expressing her discontent on how Indian Armed Forces are dealing with situation in #Kashmir in a rather exaggerated manner
2.
Going through all her self-made videos, one can’t help but appreciate her ‘skills’ to turn any international day,event/birth/death #anniversary into an agenda to malign the Indian #armedforces ...
3.
If someone tells you that Mushall Mullick has uploaded a video, expect nothing else but jabber about #Indian Govt & its #Security Forces. However, it’s not very difficult to understand the reason behind her almost daily, monotonous anti-India rants

Wow...look at who pops up in the ‘Active Measures’ video on Prime, @BorisJohnson - it’s #JackWakefield’s former boss, #DmytroFirtash! Wakefield is #DominicCummings’ brother-in-law & Firtash helps #Putin launder #Russian money! #ReleaseTheRussianReport

#Firtash is friends with #PaulManafort who was #DonaldTrump’s campaign manager - Manafort was imprisoned for corruption and fraud. Manafort helped to launder money in US for #Firtash and indirectly #Putin.

#ReleaseTheRussianReport ImageImageImageImage
#Firtash bought the Brompton Road Tube Station at the eleventh hour. The redevelopment of disused tube stations was a (flagging) project for #BorisJohnson during his time as Mayor of #London. Firtash came out of nowhere to buy the station, bypassing the bidding process

The Drunkard of Europe

JASON MICHAEL
IT WAS ONE OF THE WORST DAYS OF MY LIFE. I know for a fact it was the worst day in at least two people’s lives. In the early hours of the morning the phone rang. On the other end of the phone my friend was speaking to me in a stranger’s voice
. Her husband was beside himself with shock and grief, and she was calmly explaining to me what had happened. I say ‘calmly,’ but this wasn’t calm. It was emotionless, a sort of thousand-yard stare of a voice, producing something that sounded for all the world like the person
I knew while she was somewhere else. This voice was absent, it was hollow, and this voice woke me up. Their beautiful baby daughter had died in her sleep.An hour later I was standing by this little angel’s cot, receiving her into my arms from her mother.

When have the most inhumane acts occurred in time?
