The #Pakistan #Army learned the lessons from the #Vietnam war and carefully controlled the Western #narrative and the level of aggression in Afghanistan, the #US military apparently didn't, and lived in an imaginary wonderland created by its friends in Pakistan!
2/usa #BeAware: Unless #US foreign policy experts learn the correct lessons from the US post-war experience in the Indian sub-continent (& Asia more generally), they cannot be trusted to give sensible advise on S Asia to the US congress and US govt

🧠🧘A new #McMaster study on exercise during the pandemic identifies a troubling paradox: many respondents who said they wanted improve their mental health via exercise also identified poor mental health as a barrier to doing so. Fortunately there are solutions. [1/14]
The director of McMaster's NeuroFit Lab, @jenniferheisz, started the study after the first pandemic lockdown disrupted her triathlon training. Heisz was too stressed to work out at her normal level and worried some may forgo exercise altogether.… [2/14]
Between April 23 and June 30, her team surveyed1,669 study participants about their physical-activity and mental health. Some 55 per cent of respondents said their mental health had gotten worse or much worse during the pandemic. [3/14]

😷⌛️📊Data shows that more than a century apart, the 1918 influenza pandemic and COVID-19 have revealed similar fault lines in #HamOnt — and that has advocates calling for change now and for any future pandemics. [1/11] Black and white photo of nu...
In a 2012, Ann Herring co-authored a paper ( which found people living in Hamilton’s poorer northern neighbourhoods were up to twice as likely as people in Hamilton’s wealthier southern neighbourhoods to die of influenza during the 1918 pandemic. [2/11]
This was based on death records at the time. Herring, a retired #McMaster anthropology professor, says “infectious diseases always flow along the fractures in society.” In 1918, poorer people were more likely to live in crowded housing, and to have to go to work. [3/11]

🌆🗣️This year, about twice as many people registered to delegate on the 2021 #HamOnt budget, compared to either of the last two years. Some, including three first-time delegates, say this is a sign of a pandemic-related increase in political engagement. [1/13]
Budget delegations occur annually, and every delegate gets five minutes to speak, after which councillors can ask questions (council is expected to approve the final budget in March). This year's delegations took place Feb. 8.… [2/13]
“Since everyone's home, we're all on our screens all day … We are more likely to observe what's happening and want to change these establishments,” says first-time delegate Ayla Bahram. “I think a lot of people — especially younger people — are becoming more engaged.” [3/13]

The announcement by the #POTUS that he is replacing National Security Advisor LTG H R #McMaster with #Ambassador #JohnBolton is great news. This is an over due change that I wish Mr #Trump had made long ago.
John #Bolton is probably the most experienced and capable #diplomat in America today. He will be coming in at a critical time when the #President needs solid advice on dealing with #Iran, #NorthKorea, #Russia, #ISIS, and an array of other threats.
As for LTG #McMaster, I thank him for his service and wish him the best in the future. That said, there were issues, as I see them, regarding the #General’s tenure.

"Faux" #breaking du @washingtonpost affirmant que #Trump a décidé de virer son conseiller à la sécurité nationale McMaster...mais prendra le temps de le faire effectivement pour choisir 1 successeurs. Donc, rien d'acté pour l'instant.…
2) #McMaster est viré, cela signifiera que le président #Trump a limogé EN MEME TEMPS ses deux plus hauts responsables pour la politique internationale, le sécrétaire d'Etat et le conseiller à la sécurité nationale. Et qu'il s'apprête à nommer son 3e NSA en 14 mois...
3) Dans ce papier #collector du @washingtonpost, on voit encore #Trump se délecter de l'affolement des ministres et conseillers apeurés du couperet. Mais on lit aussi que #Trump se trompe régulièrement sur les attributions de ses,si...
