Speaking at @Abantu_ in South Africa was last leg in 2019 of #FeministGiant World Tour. It was a privilege & thrill to start it in #Sarajevo with #Bosnia’s first Pride and end it in #Soweto with #AbantuBookFest. Revolution in Sarajevo to revolution in Soweto. It’s been an honour!
Along the way,speaking at Pitchwise in #Sarajevo, @strandbookstore in #NYC, @RMWAdam in #Amsterdam, @McrLitFest in #Manchester, @akefestival in #Lagos, @wcfbook in #Chicago, also in #Brooklyn, #Ottawa, #Sydney, #Melbourne & turning #Australia upside down via TV. It’s been a ride!
So many incredible audiences & new friends along the way. Many thanks to all who came to hear me speak. Many thanks for the love and the gifts. So many powerful experiences. I’ve returned home full. Time now to reflect and then write about these three months. #FeministGiant

Read an opinion piece by two academics @kellyfritsch1 @anneemcguire.

Topic: #Autism @Airbnb and #Disability in #Ottawa

My major concern - It reads like a polemic full of biases.

And that's only the start.


Opinion pieces can invaluable.

They give an informed insight into an important issue or dilemma.

This largely depends on the manner in which the issues are addressed and unpacked by the author(s).

What is the contention? What data are relied on? Does the piece impugn?
There are a whole range of qualitative indicators we can use to determine the contribution an opinion piece can make on furthering our understanding of an issue.

There are major missteps one can take that undermine the salience and news worthiness of a piece.

Good evening, and welcome to another edition of #WhiskyWednesday , a glimpse into areas that may or may not blow your mind. All I ask is that you sit back enjoy your favourite cocktail and open your mind to what is happening around you...

Ok here we go...
The year is 1968 and a rather lame looking logo of a very powerful society...The Club Of Rome.

Created by Aurelio Peccei, David Rockefeller and Alexander King it’s an organization of individuals that are scientists, economists, corporations high level civil servants.
This organization was created to study and solve problems of mankind—environmental deterioration, poverty, endemic ill-health, urban blight, criminality—individually, in isolation or as "problems capable of being solved in their own terms".

Trudeau became a member.

LRT update starts with virtual tour of a train. Then a pretty pic of Parliament Station. #ottpoli
Manconi: RTG has "done some amazing work" in recent weeks. Significant progress, he says. But adds "winter ops" as a ninth area to watch.
He gets into the Alstom Citadis Spirit trains. He says they've been used around the world and adapted to the local environment. (Though this Spirit version was designed for Ottawa).

No other context to be considered here. Senator David Tkachuk was talking about how the #YellowVests #unitedwerollforcanada protesters "Rolled here" to #Ottawa over past few days. So they drove their trucks there. Then said he wants them to "roll" over Liberals. #cdnpoli
I could "roll" over to the scene of the Fredericton shooting in about 20 minutes. If I stood there and recorded a video where I call for people who drive cars, who "roll" them around, to start "rolling" over Conservatives would I not face some consequences? #Toronto #cdnpoli
We pay for Senator David Tkachuk's subscription to #HamishMarshall's Rebel Media.

The same Rebel Media cited as a source of information as the Fredericton shooter.

So.. tomorrow in #Ottawa, Maxime Bernier will headline a rally against the UN migration compact. The rally is hosted by a bunch of fringe far-right groups that promote anti-Islam, anti-Soros, & 'white genocide' conspiracy theories. Let's take a quick look: #cdnpoli #ppc
Organizer 1: CitizenGO Canada creates rightwing petitions. It currently has a petition calling on Trudeau to hold a referendum on signing the UN migrant compact, saying it is pushed by "Soros" and "globalist elites" to gain "global control." These are classic anti-semitic tropes.
Organizer 2: Canadian Coalition for Responsible Government. Total conspiracy theorists who hold anti-Soros events, say the UN compact is an "evil document" and a "plan" to move "massive amounts of migrants," share content from white supremacists Faith Goldy and Stefan Molyneux.

I was born and raised in the beautiful city of #Curitiba, southern #Brazil!
This region is famous for being cold and cloudy (yes it can be cold in Brazil!).
It is also famous for its very endemic and beautiful #Araucaria pine trees. #voicesIWS @IWS_Network @500womensci /1
#Actions speak louder than words! I am thankful for my parents for being who they are. Both always showed love for Nature, different interests and #curiosity! So no wonder by observing them I grew up to be a very curious girl who really loved Nature. #voicesIWS @IWS_Network /2
During High School I became fascinated by the #mendelian #genetics classes and the work of #gregormendel! I also loved studying animals, ecosystems and climate so the obvious choice for me in University (@PUCPR_oficial ) was BIOLOGY!! @IWS_Network #womeninscience #voicesIWS /3

One of #Canada #Ottawa's largest mosques loses charity status for promoting ‘hate and intolerance’ via @StewartBellNP…
“Many of the views expressed by the organization’s speakers are misogynistic, homophobic, racist and/or promote violence,” the @CanRevAgency Charities Branch wrote in a letter sent to the mosque president.
It means the mosque no longer benefits from the #tax advantages enjoyed by government-registered charities. Foremost, it cannot issue receipts allowing donors to claim their contributions as income tax deductions.
