JAGMOHAN AND THE BUTCHER OF GAWKADAL

Kashmiri Muslims, INC, NC, PDP, Left & Cohorts unanimously hold the then Governor #Jagmohan guilty of ordering the firing that left 50 dead in Srinagar.

Can reality be opposite of consensual 'truth'?

Let's find out. 1/n

#MythBusting
FACT: Gawkadal Massacre refers to the indiscriminate firing upon a separatist procession passing through the Gawkadal locality of Srinagar on 21 Jan 1990 that left 50 dead. The then DSP #ALLAH #BAKSH led the JKP+CRPF contingent that opened fire on the procession upon his orders.
State Human Rights Commission (SHRC) accused #Allah #Baksh of #conspiracy leading to deaths.
However, no action was ever taken against The Butcher of Gawkadal '90, who retired as DIG through a series of promotions. He died in the year 2012.

A '#Mythbusting' mayhem [Thread]:

Last Friday, 4 June, @NHSDigital removed the “Mythbusting social media posts” box from the top of its main #NationalDataOptOut page:

web.archive.org/web/diff/20210… < Web Archive diff showing 3 June vs 5 June

They also removed...
...the @NHSDigital call centre phone number and replaced it with text directing people to the #NHSapp. (If they tell us what changed, we’ll change our website too – but they’ve not yet asked.)

In the same time frame, they changed the...
...“Read NHS Digital's response to the false information about the national data opt-out” link link on:

nhs.uk/your-nhs-data-…

so that instead of going to the “Mythbusting social media posts about the national data opt-out” page...

Our #vancomycin AUC-based therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) counterpoint is out!

Thrilled to work on this with @wfwrighID @BradSpellberg & Twitterless Andrew Shorr 😀

Check out 🧵for highlights? 👇 1/n
Brief background.
1st 2009 #vancomycin guidelines recommended troughs 15-20 for serious MRSA infections due to #vancomycin ‘MIC creep’ & associated treatment failures.
But not based on evidence for efficacy or safety 😶

academic.oup.com/ajhp/article-a… 2/n
Since then, we learned MRSA #vancomycin ‘MIC creep’ likely due inherent MIC assay variability / limited clonal outbreaks.

A #thread on busting some myths around the coronation of Shivaji Maharaj.

Coronation of Shivaji Maharaj was one of the revolutionary event of the 17th century India. Amidst all the Sultanates & Mughal Empire, a Hindu warrior crowns himself as a King!
#ShivajiMaharaj #Hindutva

However, there are some myths that need to be busted. Historian Jadunath Sarkar has developed some myths about Coronation & Kshatriya Hood of Shivaji Maharaj.

He called Bhosales as Śudras & mere tillers of soil. Jadunath also says that they were "popularly known" as such.
3.
This is a ridiculous thing to claim, without any shred of evidence.

This thread will provide the evidence, showing that many people contemporary of Shivaji Maharaj knew, that he *was* a born Kshatriya.

A) It’s interesting that Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) is not only the equivalent of the RAF squadrons with their international fighter pilots, the anti-aircraft gun batteries and the Home Guard in the current battle for British welfare but also the... rt.com/op-ed/499549-b…
B)..battle-ready Bomber Command. But *all* of the self-appointed Lefty social campaigners like @NeilClark66 studiously ignore it. Why might that be? It’s like they are all tolerated or even enabled by the Establishment to form an illusion that the oppressed have representatives..
C)..fighting for them - to constantly engender hope, failure, apathy and depression. We are awash with them. Stand up for yourselves! Form an effective guerrilla force. Learn MMT and fight back! #MMT #LearnMMT #JobGuarantee #GreenNewDeal #MythBusting #PeoplesEconomy

THREAD - so here is a list of the 5 or so most common myths and misconceptions by the general public and fellow non-specialist scientists alike that I encounter in my field of research.
#mythbusting #Factchecking
*MYTH No. 1*: the time, location and size of impending earthquakes can be predicted accurately on many occasions.
No. Anyone who says they can is a total charlatan. Forecasting (years->decades) is getting better, but still not successful on short timescales (i.e. days to months)
*MYTH No. 2*: Seismic monitoring networks and government agencies hide seismic data & earthquake parameters from the public.
No. Anyone who says so is a paranoid conspiracy theorist. It is in no one's interest to hide this data and scientists aren't the best at keeping secrets.
