Have you ever thought about how we monitor #wildlife? In this thread🧵 I will explain my #PhDthesis

#CREAF20K #cameratraps #mammals #conservation
Traditional methods of studying wildlife were based on direct observation of animals🧐🔭.
However, the technological boom of recent decades has also changed the way of monitoring wildlife. Do you want to know how?
Keyword is #cameratrap 📸!!
#Cameratraps are remotely activated cameras by an infrared sensor. When an animal passes in front of them, they record photos. Cameras operate with batteries and SD cards, we can place them in remote areas. Finally, animals don't react to them and showed their habitual behaviour

While #science thought us that we can even cut and paste #genes with #CRISPR technology…even with that we only influence 3% to 5% of #chronicillness. The rest depends on #how you #live your #life!!! So how do we #SelfRegulate our #body?

There has been speculation what the "Z" letter on Russian tanks invading Ukraine stands for:

Whatever tactical purpose, during the last days, a massive propaganda campaign has started using the #Z for a "rally behind the army" effect. An analytical🧵...
The disinformation channel Russia Today may have started it (or kicked it off?) one week ago by selling merchandise with the symbol of the invasion. Meanwhile, Russian social media is flooded with paroles using the symbol.

When there is one word I dislike in Russian, a language I have studied for 10 years and that I love, it is "naš" (наш), meaning "our". In everyday language use, anything Russian will be called "наш". I have spent years explaining this was banal nationalism, and here we go:

Here's a dilemma..

You see a cute bird. And you see a cute kid. Then you see the kid kill the bird with this slingshot. Will you punish the kid?

This is very common in many villages in Nashik. It leads to empty forests - no birds, no chirping, no singing.
Only silence! Image
So how to make these innocent kids stop using galor (slingshot)?

By talking to each child.
By telling each kid how painful it is.
By making them promise never to use again.
By nudging them to "voluntarily #surrender Galor"

In short, by winning their hearts! ❤️ Image

@SixthTone 🧵3/ #躺人 lying flat

#LyingFlat is becoming a social movement of young people rejecting the #CCP's "Chinese Dream" 中国梦.

Xi Jinping announced this ideal in late 2012 to lead China's “great rejuvenation.”

This hits home... Esp the non-profit VS revolution bit

"It's important to recognize that a revolution won't be launched by consensus. As organizers or volunteer leaders, you need to propose a strategic plan and invite others to join you. Don't worry about being undemocratic.
If your plan is not smart enough, not enough people will join you, and you can give up on the revolution and become a small nonprofit instead! Any group of changemakers—from a small affinity group to a large organization to a revolutionary movement with clear demands—
can benefit from adopting this rule. Create a centralized strategic plan using whatever process is right for your movement. Make sure the plan has tasks that can be repeated by volunteers that add up to progress on the plan. Then delegate chunks of work from your plan to

Led by Jennifer Harris, director of the Economy & Society Initiative, "the Hewlett Foundation is joined by a growing group of #funders interested in nurturing a #movement to supersede #neoliberalism."

"This is our moment of opportunity! But how?"

This is a short thread on how "trusted #messengers" & technology ("#vaxbots"; "vaccine bots"; AI) will (most certainly) be utilized to mitigate/overcome vaccine hesitancy.

This is more than a #band, this is a #spiritual #movement; and we are in the midst, of a spiritual #war--as we've been #warning you about this very moment in time, for the past decade.
With 3 #albums to date, #processionals across the #US, #podcasts, interviews, #vlogs, and #lessons; weve laid out everything we can before heading into such a battle, & were working on putting out more of these things for you to use on your #pilgrammages within & without.
However, we know how daunting such information and sensations can be; so we'd like to extend TO ALL INITIATES, THAT ARE IN NEED OF #COUNSELING (IN REGARDS TO THE MATTERS OF THE #SPIRIT)--PLEASE DO NOT BE AFRAID TO ASK.

The biggest threat to #JoeBiden's chances is the continuing suppression of black votes and the refusal of the #Democrats to do anything about it.

Ever wonder why our legal system lets #police literally get away with murder?

1] Some of us who come from the ghetto will always say:

"if you can't say it to my face, i don't believe you".

The presser by #MaKhupe and co was just empty rhetoric.

Everyone looks brave when they feel safe.

It's only a matter of time when this charade will be exposed. Image
2] Its embarrassing desperation for #MaKhupe to claim Leadership over 103 MPs when she has 2.

Even stupid people know that the MDC-T was rejected by voters.

That rejection cannot be cured by legal technicalities.

It's even embarrassing for #Mwonzora to be part of this madness.
3] #MaKhupe continues to expose her naivety & #Leadership deficiency.

To argue that she is to the #MDC-T what #JohnStenheisen is to the #DA after the exit of #MusiMaimane is a joke that's not funny.

There was an undisputed #Leadership succession in the #DA.

Here's a thread to keep track of some of the action emerging among foundations I'm following. Not a comprehensive list, just a place for me to track my coverage....1/n
On March 17th (seems like a long time ago) @MJTPhilanthropy and I tracked some of the initial response from large foundations and a community foundation that had a ready-made response plan - for a mass shooting - that it put in place for the pandemic philanthropy.com/article/Grant-…
A preliminary take on corporate giving from @CECPtweets suggested that many companies were responding. In the great recession businesses pulled back, but giving recovered more quickly than private foundation grants philanthropy.com/article/Compan…

@Fightba40518677 @RealDealAxelrod @CJTS7006 @TreyQuinn9 @Terence_Wilson1 @Nellie_0hr @TheFifteen20 @JeffOnTheRight @HotepJesus @SonnyTheGreat_ @SonnieJohnson Okay, I'm new but I'll try.

1. Trump is an entertainer and has friends in entertainment, gets elected.

2. Conservatives conflicted from day 1

3. Trump does enough to be impeached, but isn't, conservatives are split further into factions.
@Fightba40518677 @RealDealAxelrod @CJTS7006 @TreyQuinn9 @Terence_Wilson1 @Nellie_0hr @TheFifteen20 @JeffOnTheRight @HotepJesus @SonnyTheGreat_ @SonnieJohnson 4. With Trump, conservative ideology is challenged as it doesn't look like "Reagan" anymore.

5. Thought leaders emerge to wrangle a message together.

6. I see Candace first, slinging slave and plantation narrs, "NRA was civil rights" and other questionable unproven ideas.
@Fightba40518677 @RealDealAxelrod @CJTS7006 @TreyQuinn9 @Terence_Wilson1 @Nellie_0hr @TheFifteen20 @JeffOnTheRight @HotepJesus @SonnyTheGreat_ @SonnieJohnson 7. She gets massive attention through the establishment and that establishment is practically 95% white. No issue there but her messaging of Blacks are slaves is landing mainly on their ears.

Our Transformation Will Be Evolutionary, Not Revolutionary.

But the evolutionary process can be quickened to shorten its time.

The adventure to transform a nation is a process.For a nation as diverse &complex as Nig.,the process is helplessly long

Making a crucial mental shift from acute short termism to developing a long term perspective on development is a crucial part of the process

#CitizenMovement
The factors that turned us into the nation that we are, are stacked layer after layer, built through decades of iterating and innovating a corruptive culture.

Taking those layers off takes a process. To start building again, block after block, takes a process.
