I'm voting for the NDP in Alberta this election so that our granddaughters do not have to fight the fights of our grandmothers...for the right to use their own name, to publish books, to paint a painting under their own name and be able to earn a living selling their work 1/9
So they can decide the career they want to pursue without duress.
So they don't have to cross their legs to try and hold back labour while someone produces a credit card to pay the doctor like my mother had to do for the first 3 pregnancies 2/9
until we had #UniversalHealthcare in Canada.
So they don't have to endure forced pregnancies because of someone else's ideology.
So all children can get a good education NOT an indoctrination 3/9

A thread. 1/11

An elected head of state is accountable, democratic, representative, cost effective. It provides stability, legitimacy, transparency, adaptability, and unity.

@RepublicStaff @GrahamSmith_ #NotMyKing

Accountability matters. An elected head of state is answerable to the people who voted them in. #accountability #democracy

Democracy is the bedrock of a free society. An elected head of state reflects the people's will, chosen through a fair and transparent process. #democracy #fairness

ಸನ್ಮಾನ್ಯ @PriyankKharge ಅವರ ಮಾತುಗಳನ್ನ ಕೇಳ್ದೆ, ಅಲ್ಲೆ ಕೆಳಗಿನ ಟ್ವೀಟಲ್ಲಿ ನಮ್ಮ ಪ್ರಧಾನಿಯವರು ಇವತ್ತು ಮಾತಾಡಿರೋದನ್ನ ಕೇಳ್ದೆ.
ರಾಜಕಾರಣಿಗೆ ವಿದ್ಯಾಭ್ಯಾಸ ಯಾಕೆ ಮುಖ್ಯ ಅಂತ ನಂಗೆ ಅಲ್ಲೇ ಗೊತ್ತಾಯ್ತು.
ಮಕ್ಕಳಿಗೆ ಬೇಕಿರುವುದು ಓದು, ಕೆಲಸ, ಸಂಬಳ, ನೆಮ್ಮದಿಯ ಜೀವನ.
2014 ರಿಂದ ಇಲ್ಲಿಯವರೆಗೂ ದೇಶದ ಜನರ ಭಾವನೆಗಳಿಗೆ ಬೆಂಕಿಯಿಟ್ಟುಕೊಂಡು ಬಂದಿರೋ ಪಕ್ಷವನ್ನ ನಾವು ಗೆಲ್ಲಿಸಿದ್ರೆ ನಮ್ಮ ಆತ್ಮಕ್ಕೆ ನಾವೇ ದ್ರೋಹ ಬಗೆದಂತೆ.
ಕರ್ನಾಟಕವನ್ನ ಮಾರಿ, ಮಕ್ಕಳ ಕೈಲಿ ಚೂರಿ ಕೊಟ್ಟು, ಹೆಗಲ ಮೇಲೆ ಕೇಸರಿ ಶಾಲು ಹೊದಿಸಿ, ಕೊನೆಗೆ ತಮ್ಮ ಚುನಾವಣೆಗಳು ಮುಗಿದ ಮೇಲೆ ಅವರನ್ನು ಬೀದಿಗೆ ತಳ್ಳುತ್ತಾರೆ. ಎಚ್ಚರವಿರಲಿ !! 2/n
ನಾವು ಯಾವುದನ್ನೂ ಮರೆಯಬಾರದು,
- ನೋಟುಗಳ ಬ್ಯಾನ್‌ - ಅದ್ರಿಂದ ಆರ್ಥಿಕ ಪರಿಸ್ಥಿತಿ ಸರಿಯಾಯಿತೆ?
5 ವರ್ಷ ಕಮ್ಮಿ ಅಂತ ಹೇಳಿಕೊಂಡು 2019ರಲ್ಲಿ ಮತ್ತೆ ಬಂದಿರಲ್ಲ ಸ್ವಾಮಿ. ಎಲ್ಲಿ ದೇಶದ ಆರ್ಥ ವ್ಯವಸ್ಥೆಯ ಸುಧಾರಣೆ? ತೋರಿಸಿ.
- #COVID19 ದೇಶದ ಜನರು ಊರುಗಳಿಗೆ ನಡೆದು, ವ್ಯವಸ್ಥೆಗಳಿಲ್ಲದೆ ಸತ್ತರಲ್ಲ. ಆವಾಗ ಎಲ್ಲಿದ್ರಿ? 3/n

Hello Poster lovers!

Today is Sunday, so why don't we learn something about social rights?

I researched two significant movements in history that used vintage posters as a tool to bring attention to their cause:
- 'I Am a Man '
- The women's rights movement.
Let's dive in! Image
The "I Am a Man" movement emerged in Memphis, TN in 1968, with African American sanitation workers demanding better pay and safer working conditions. The workers marched with signs bearing the words "I Am a Man," asserting their humanity and dignity in the face of discrimination. Image
One iconic poster from the "I Am a Man" movement features the phrase "Honor King: End Racism!", symbolizing resistance and solidarity. The poster was created to promote a march that took place in Memphis in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. after his assassination. #MLK #Posters Image

1/6 Anyone still arguing if AI will take jobs or not, does not understand what's already here... and not to mention what is coming! 🤖💼🚀🔜 #AI #jobs #automation
The last time we saw something of this magnitude was during the Industrial Revolution when we invented machines to do work instead of horses, people, and manual labor. #IndustrialRevolution #technology #innovation

They are very good at coming up with ideas and very very super bad at remembering/holding onto ideas.

The only way to AVOID OVERWHELM is something I've struggled a lot with.

Building a digital 2nd BRAIN.

Knowing What to do When will free up so much mental space and stop you(me) from getting overwhelmed.

see "Getting Things Done" by David Allen

Or any videos by Ali Abdaal
Once you(I) know what to do when you can be fully present in everything you are doing.

You are probably failing to do some of the things you do every day to their full potential because you are focused on everything you have to do all day and for the next week in your mind.

66/Indus Army to Army cooperation making rapid strides since the visit of US general heading special forces command
67/indus Are Clinton-Obama 😇staffers in the Biden administration, holding up further/faster development of USA-India ties?
68/indus I am confident that #US foreign policy establishment, which is still nostalgic about its 20th C World dominance, will eventually realise that #India will have to be treated in 21st C, as an independent (albeit junior) “partner”, not a 20th C, “Allied Minor (child)”!

For years, clients & community members have reported hellish conditions at the Workhouse—flooding, extreme temperatures, sewage, rodent infestation, & violence. Yesterday, the court declared that in addition to our 6 clients—we believe thousands of others were similarly harmed.
This means that the City could owe millions of dollars to compensate thousands of people for the harms and atrocities they experienced while detained inside of the Workhouse.
“It feels like the chains are finally starting to be lifted,” said Diedre Wortham, a plaintiff and grandmother of five from St. Louis. “I’m hopeful that they close the Workhouse and keep it closed.”

I'm super excited to share my conversation with @matt_levine who is one of the funniest, wittiest, and sharpest writers today. I've learned much about the world from reading his Money Stuff almost every day for the past few years.…
We spoke a lot about the emotional life of writing (panic and fun), the wisdom of the Classics, how to read the Bible from the point of view of a hedge fund trader, why delight is underrated, and applying rationality to the apparently absurd.

Many of you know Matt on meme stocks. Fewer of you know him on Archilochus, Sophocles, Jacob and Esau, Machiavelli.

2/ I was raised Catholic and believe in this (ctto via reddit)

Love thy neighbor.
All neighbors. No exceptions.

If I really hated them then I just did not hang out w them 🤷🏻‍♀️. No hateful speech or hateful laws.
3/ Most of my family in Texas is religious, republican, & single issue voters. Anti abortion, no matter what. Even if M@ga Trumpism breaks all the other 9 commandments.

I hate that I now have to discuss forced-birth issues w beloveds.

Had a run of 3 good days, but just tried doing *some* of the things my lungs had allowed me to do over the weekend & over-did it by fixing the ball-cock in the toilet cistern! Lowered my guard; lungs are tight again (first time in 10 days) & I'm lightheaded. #PulmonaryEmbolism

Thrilled to announce the Longevity #Impetus Grants, $21M+ towards basic research that could accelerate our understanding and control of human aging.
We welcome proposals from researchers in- and outside the #Aging field. Please share!

More info: & this 🧵
Impetus Grants are $10k-500k (w max 10% overhead). Smaller requests favored, to support more projects. No project period and no strings attached. Scientists at non-profits worldwide can apply with ideas that shift perspectives & capabilities in #Aging research, starting Sep 13th.
Inspiration came from @tylercowen & @patrickc's #COVID19 Fast Grants. Their team made funding decisions in 2 weeks, and the grants have already led to both discoveries and better tools for #testing.
If it's feasible to fund science this way, shouldn't we?…

Generally speaking #infrastructure is defined as the basic #physical systems of any #business, #region, or that of any #nation... including #transportation systems, #communication #networks, #sewage, #water supply & #electrical #grid systems. #BuildBackBetter #logistics #stimulus
Various types of #infrastructure #construction based projects typically drive the bulk of conversations amongst those of us vested in the arduous process of "progress" moving forward.
#Highway improvement, #street & #road maintenance & #bridge building commonly take center stage.
Mass #transit, #airport & #airways, #municipal #WaterSupply, #waste management along with waste #Water #management,
#power generation & #transmission, #HazardousWaste removal & #storage ALL must be considered while addressing basic underlying societal frameworks. #sustainability
