"New Delhi shut its eyes not only to the unending flow of funds from overseas, but also to Islamabad’s largesse of MBBS seats every year to each of the separatist leaders in Pakistan’s medical colleges." - @ahmedalifayyaz
"When the founder of the Congress party in J&K, Mohammad Shafi Qureshi, died during the Burhan Wani mayhem in 2016, his family failed to find a place for his burial. A tomb was arranged in a Delhi cemetery." - @ahmedalifayyaz

Jaco Booyens has been fighting against human sex trafficking for nearly a decade, so he has an accurate idea of how much help his cause has received from the government. 2) #JacoBooyens #Traffick911 #Trump

So when Booyens — who also directed the movie “8 Days,” which is based on true stories of victims of sex trafficking — says former President Barack Obama didn’t do anything to help fight the problem, it carries credibility. 3) #ObamaFail

A special symposium #EvoDevo19 honored Dr. Günter Wagner for his leadership & service to our profession, especially as Journal of Experimental Zoology editor-in-chief . To show our appreciate of his contributions to #evodevo, here are some books & papers we like!
Landmark paper with Lee Altenberg in 1996 in Evolution is a must read!

Complex Adaptations and the Evolution of Evolvability (read online free)
FYI, Laura Nuño de la Rosa used a co-citation analysis to show that Wagner & Altenberg (1996), Houle (1992), and Kirschner & Gerhart (1998), were the three key papers that made "evolvability" into a "true research front"

The Sludge Sisters
"A Muddy Mixture"
By Joan Swirsky —— Throughout the ages, Jews have been the targets of genocidal forces both large and small, educated and ignorant, liberal and conservative, pagan and religious. 2)
Other small sects and religions have never inspired the particular psychotic animus that Jews have because they never threatened the larger populace as Jews have with blazing green-eyed jealousy—the most powerful emotion of the human species.

#mustread Elected at age 35 after two years on the village council, Groisman, who is Jewish, spearheaded the passage of a local hate-crime ordinance in 2017 that took the U.S. State Department's 2010 guidelines on #Antisemitism and codified them 1)
... into a section of the village code entitled "Consideration of Anti-Semitism in Enforcing Laws."
At its core, the ordinance defines anti-Semitism using real-world examples so village police can more easily determine if a hate crime has occurred 2) #HateCrime
...against the village's flourishing Jewish community. Examples of antiSemitism outlined in the ordinance include making "stereotypical allegations about Jews … esp, but not exclusively, the myth about a world #Jewishconspiracy or of Jews controlling the media (or) economy," 3)

Quand je vois le genre de trolling que provoque immanquablement un tweet sur le glyphosate, très similaire à ce que tout journaliste travaillant sur la Syrie expérimente, je ne serais pas surprise d’apprendre que les lobbies achètent les services de fermes à trolls privées.
Par exemple beaucoup de tweets de ce genre : compte anonyme avec 3 abonnés qui ne correspond probablement pas à une personne réelle avec l’argument de « la Science avec un grand S » et passablement agressif (celui là est caricatural mais c’est le ton de la majorité des autres)
A une époque où les acteurs de la démocratie libérale rationnelle sont en lutte contre les offensives de la post-vérité, l’argument de la science est malin.
Quoique complètement imbécile, surtout quand on lui met un grand S (ça m’a beaucoup fait rire pour le coup)

🚨EXCLUSIVE 🚨: Rupert Murdoch's Fox rocked by one of the biggest financial penalties in TV history after an arbitrator concludes top execs gave false testimony to cover up a "reprehensible" fraud. And there's MUCH more...…
One day after an appeals court blesses the vertical integration between AT&T and Time Warner, the exec producers & stars of "Bones" go to court to affirm a $179 MILLION award imposed because Fox's studio arm was cutting sweetheart deals with Fox's distribution arms.
The arbitrator's decision has the potential to upend the economics of streaming hit shows, and in particular, leaves Hulu's fate greatly uncertain.

Note on possible #IAF #airstrike today. There is NO SUCH THING as "terror camps". These aren't concentrated like schools or colleges. These are disaggregated and dispersed AT ALL TIMES. If targets were struck they would be military targets
.2n this IAF Embraer 145 AWACS was patrolling since the early hours. Watchers know this is an unusual pattern, although it did come close to the area of the alleged strike, it patrolled South as well. The plane has since returned to base. Source: @zone5aviation #IAF #airstrike

#MustRead @NewYorker: China’s Bizarre Program to Keep Activists in Check…

People the state considers troublemakers may be sent to jail—or sent on vacation.

bei lüyou—“to be touristed”—joins passive voice phrases describing things PRC gov’t does to people
Chinese #netizen slang: "whenever law enforcement frames people, or otherwise conscripts them into an activity, the prefix bei is used to indicate the passive tense. Hence: bei loushui (to be tax-evaded), bei zisha (to be suicided), bei piaochang (to be johned), and so on."
"In a joke [Chinese liberals—educated urbanites] liked about the 2016 U.S. election, a bunch of eunuchs are so appalled by the bawdy quarrels among the married folk that they congratulate themselves: 'How fortunate we are to be castrated!'"…

2018: My Year of Reading. A thread that follows my reading journey from January to December. Every book I've read with a 280 character review. Tagged a few folks who influence the shape of my literary life 📚 #THEBOOKCHAT #DisruptTexts #TeachLivingPoets 📚
1. Never Let Me Go; Kazuo Ishiguro: A supremely crafted narrative begins unassumingly, but quickly reveals a different notion of childhood innocence and coming of age. The conversational tone fooled me into thinking I was walking into a world I understood. Nobel worthy.
2. We Should All Be Feminists; Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie: As an author who breathes eloquence, Adichie doesn't disappoint. This short book/long essay is insightful and logical and human. If we want to raise boys without the toxic masculinity, this is on the required reading list.

2. Al principio del artículo, el @nytimes admite que publicar un artículo anónimo es una circunstancia excepcional pero dice que conoce la identidad del autor y subraya que el texto aporta información importante. También invita a sus lectores a hacer preguntas sobre el proceso
3. Estas frases resumen el artículo.

CSIRO CEO on @GBRFoundation Chair Dr Schubert:
“Better we help than he burns millions on overheads."

Good on CSIRO for wanting to stop this private foundation from wasting millions of public dollars.
Turnbull should have just given the money to the CSIRO in the first place.
Under @TurnbullMalcolm - CSIRO is now reduced to “working on (the GBRF Chair) in the background”

What a great idea. Let’s get our public sector agencies running around to lobby a small private foundation chairman in order to get public money for public science. #reefgate

"The Glossers [Miller's maternal lineage] came to the U.S. just a few years [starting in 1903] before the fear and prejudice of the 'America First' nativists of the day closed U.S. borders to Jewish refugees."
"Had Wolf-Leib [Glosser] waited, his family would likely have been murdered by the Nazis along with all but seven of the 2,000 Jews who remained in Antopol."

This week, two pivotal pieces were published that everyone #mustread. @HenMazzig and @yumcoconutmilk's pieces, side by side, truly represent WMFA's raison d'être & demand for inclusivity. The divisive tendencies of certain social justice leaders deeply harms all of us. 1/n

Dear Black Americans,

I hate to be the one to break it to you, but the #BlackPantherMovie was not made with you in mind 😢

Everything about Disney’s “Blackest Production Ever” was strategic, including its target audience:

‘Continental Africans’
We all know that Disney is great when it comes to creating enchanting cinematography, so we can’t be too hard on ourselves for being easily spellbound by the rich blackness displayed through the lens of Ryan Coogler.
However, it’s been a full week now, so I’m hoping we can have an adult conversation about the true purpose, and strategic intent behind Disney’s $200 million global sensation, Black Panther.
