#Novel #Conversation Thread @IndicBookClub

Began reading Saiswaroopa’s #Rukmini . Just in the First Chapter. In few pages, it establishes

- The persona of a spectrum of #Mahabharata characters
- The Universe of Rukmini
- The Trajectory of her journey

You get a thick peek.

The Larger Universe of MB characters gives it an epic streak. Hopefully, it will remain throughout the book. That is the larger universe that Rukmini may have to deal with?

Lets see in the coming pages.

The Universe of Rukmini, the small universe, you perceive it through the interest Rukmini shows in things around her.

I wonder how the larger universe impacts this small universe.

Got to wait and see.

Because I love books, alliteration and #RachelJoyce I bought myself Miss Benson’s Beetle.


The blurb at the beginning is beautiful.


There are even questions at the end.

(1) appreciate the work @itslaurasplace does for the #SantaMariaTimes, but the people who were highlighted in this recent article are using terms they don’t understand, particularly “equity.”…
(2) So, for example, they have justified ending reading novels as part of their “vision” and “equity.” They’re also sticking to a strict pacing guide for a drill-and-kill workbook. They’ve also ended essay writing. That’s not equity: that’s a terrible version of equality.
(3) So, these people are using all of the fancy jargon that sounds great in the press and in board meetings, but in practice it’s a dictatorial approach to education that violates academic freedom and doesn’t actually engender passion for learning or reading in students.

With very real world consequences:

Having seen the impact of just one 'slipped grade' (my elder son, several years back) my heart goes out to all those students receiving new like this today.
Hmm. Who at @ofqual signed off on an appeals process that operationalises the dog-eat-dog #ethics of the #HungerGames?

1/Today, we launch a new project: defining & analysing a series of global & country-level #ParisAgreement-compatible #decarbonisation benchmarks, across four major sectors: #Power, #Transport, #Industry, #Buildings, each w benchmarks for several indicators Image
2/ We've derived 2030 & 2050 sectoral benchmarks for seven countries: #Brazil, #China, #EU, #India, #Indonesia, #SouthAfrica, the #US, taking into account each country's technical, infrastructure & economic circumstances #decarbonisation. Summary report:
3/ Our benchmarks are at a level of “highest plausible ambition" - technically, economically feasible, consider existing infrastructure, ensure they push the boundaries on all levels, & increase our chances of meeting the #ParisAgreement #1o5C limit

#Novel coronavirus- a cautionary tale: the thread  

Heavens to Dickens, look at that data! You may have noticed a bit of Twist, Oliver. As we opened a new chapter into stage 3 with hope, the COVID case counts have been fast and furious the past few days. (1/5)
So, what can explain this #TaleOfTwoCities?   Not to be a #MobyDick, it seems that during stage 2, not everyone had their #SenseAndSensibility. Many of the recent cases can be traced back to gatherings and parties during stage 2. (2/5)
As we step forward in this #BraveNewWorld of stage 3, we must keep up the good work that has allowed us to get here. Try to limit your contacts, especially for indoor gatherings. Stick to your exclusive circle of 10 or less people. (3/5)

So much to unpack here

Thankfully I experienced the opposite in my own residency
BUT then I was unprepared for this after residency

When described this way by faculty, then can a woman really choose to describe herself similar to men without invoking backlash and social cost?
The word choices here are signaling values

difference in what valued by gender and it predicts this later

expected of women:
special favors
emotional labor
friendship behaviors
constant availability

can women hold others accountable?…
This extends to direct reports too. What if one stops bringing snacks, being maternal (the giving tree)?

Is it fair to make it a women’s job, already overburdened and underpaid, to support other women?

Or can there be accountability & standards?…

Setiap kali ada ketidakadilan pada #Novel, selalu dimunculkan kasus terbunuhnya seorang tersangka pencuri burung walet di Bengkulu pada 2004, ketika dia menjadi Kepala Satuan Reserse Polres Bengkulu.

Dalam Peraturan Jaksa Agung No. 36/2011 sih jelas dlm melakukan Penuntutan seorang Jaksa harus memperhatikan hal berikut:

A. Keadilan
Bagi Korban utamanya.. Buta 1 mata apa adil diganjar tuntutan 1 tahun?

NB: Kemungkinan Terdakwa akan bebas setelah Vonis

B. Tujuan Pidana & Pemidanaan

Bila melihat Alinea 4 UUD 1945 g Pasal 10 KUHP jelas Tujuan Pemidanaan yg dianut Indonesia masih condong pd Retribution Justice

Yaitu berorientasi pd Pembalasan pada Pelaku agar timbulkan rasa Keadilan bagi Korban

1 tahun adil bagi #Novel?
C. Hal meringankan dan memberatkan

Jelas Pelaku adalah Penegak Hukum..ditambah tidak menyesal saat ditangkap dan tak peduli pd perasaan Korban

Maka seharusnya itu jd faktor pemberat bagi Pelaku, alih2 "menjadi ringan" bila dituntut "hanya" 1 tahun

"The Lancet‘s fraudulent concealment of genetics, and its own conflicting interests, while condemning #coronavirus conspiracy theorists, gives the appearance of “crisis capitalism,” and complicity in the COVID-19-SARS/HIV-1 #Wuhan ‘Event 201‘ biocrime." Image
The 'Scientific' arguments going on behind the scenes on #Covid_19 should be a wake-up call to the 'TRUE' dangers the world is being exposed to! 'BOTH' sides of the argument are labelling the other 'Conspiracy Theorists'. Only one of them can be! Image
The Lancet writes that "Conspiracy theories do nothing but create fear, rumours, and prejudice...." #Covid_19 Image

Karena alasan klasik yaitu ekonomi yng lemah, membuatku tak mampu meneruskan belajar keperguruan tinggi. Menyedihkan tapi memang apa boleh buat, keinginan utk terus belajar sgt kuat tapi uang tak punya
Akhirnya kuputuskan utk mencari kerja dulu sambil menabung. Tak usah kuceritakan tentang latar belakang keluargaku, spy tak jadi beban bagi mereka. Pendek cerita aku dibawa kenalan om utk merantau di kota kecil disebelah barat Surabaya. Disana aku ditampung dgn bbrp org seusiaku.
Ada Yanto yg masih berusia 16 tahun, dia satu2x temanku lelaki dit4 kerja itu karena selebihnya perempuan sekitar seusiaku 18 tahun. diantara para pegawai ini, hanya aku dan Mbak Minarti yang lulusan SMA. Aku panggil dia mbak karena dia nampak lebih dewasa, umur kita sama.

The Heavy Commercial Vehicles in Kent (No. 1) Order 2019 laid in draft before Parliament today… criminalising lorry drivers in Kent who leave the UK via a non-specified road or fail to produce papers showing origin+destination and what they are carrying
The Heavy Commercial Vehicles in Kent (No. 2) Order 2019… banning EU-bound lorries from local roads in Kent during restriction periods… signed yesterday but subject to Parliamentary approval This Order supports Operation Brock by restricting access to the local road network. Specifically, heavy goods vehicles that are leaving the United Kingdom via the Channel Tunnel or the Port of Dover will not be permitted to use any road in Kent maintained by Highways England, Kent County Council or Medway Council other than:<br />

The Heavy Commercial Vehicles in Kent (No. 3) Order 2019… signed yesterday and laid before Parliament today, to ban lorries from the M20 without documents and a permit during traffic restriction periods. #novel ANPR data made admissible in court 3.1. Articles 2 and 3 of this instrument rely upon the power in section 17 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 to regulate the use of special roads/motorways. The use of this power is novel – it requires the drivers of certain vehicles to comply with checks of documents relating to the export of goods and to display a permit (demonstrating compliance with the traffic management scheme known as Operation Brock…

On defining #creativity @rexjung :

Distinct from #intelligence – a superhighway; #creativity as a slow meandering process down dirt road / side road

Must be both #novel and @useful – beyond simple #utility – something #new within a social context. Unexpected links ✨🤓✨

Study isolated genomes of 150,000+ #microbes persisting in the human body (many previously unknown) 👉 This vastness of the human #microbiome is why I seldom focus on specific strains/species☝️and instead study shared #metabolite expression + common persistence mechanisms
Especially true b/c although the team did an impressive analysis, their technology did not yet account for many #viral and #eukaryotic genomes☝️Also data was derived from stool, skin, vagina + oral cavity only - meaning #organisms in other human body sites remain understudied ImageImage
Excellent @sminot blog on study states 👉 “..there are many new #microbes that we’ve never seen before. Some of those are new strains of clearly recognizable species...but some will be #novel organisms that have never been cultured or sequenced by any lab”…

Really enjoying this #novel being published day by day, using Github for #transparency on edits and creation, with a changelog and all. See the creative process! 🛠

I might have made a couple of pull requests for typos. 💁‍♀️

@wallet_novel #nanowrimo
@wallet_novel Which also makes me wonder how much of our sophisticated development workflow that we take for granted we could share with others disciplines who have no idea (or maybe better ideas!) 💡
But this is amazing. Git for the creative process.
