#THREAD #RANT on #Turkey foreign policy

Another article (not surprisingly on Al Jazeera) trying to convince us that #Ankara is the victim and Turkish foreign policy is on the defence. The approach is superficial at best and ignores a number of facts >>

aljazeera.com/indepth/opinio…
That Turkey unofficially abandoned regime change in #Syria is not the point: same author, in 2013 Hinnebusch & Tur book wrote "Turkey saw an opportunity to bring abt regime change in Damascus at Iran's expense...it was a matter of geopolitical competition between Ankara & Tehran"
Regime change was an unprecedented policy for Ankara to adopt & a revisionist one; by the author's admission, for the purpose of regional power. 4 interventions later it's inaccurate to say that "Turkey's ability to influence the course of the conflict was reduced to a minimum"

So, weil ich sonst bald detonier , kurzer #Rant zur derzeitigen Debatte um den #ÖRR infolge des sog. #Panoramagate
Vorweggenommen: Wie befürchtet, wurde die Diskussion um OTL B. gekapert. Egal, was hier von rechts oder links kommt, hat mit der #Bundeswehr nix mehr zu tun!!
1/ Die Berichterstattung von @NDRrecherche & Co. kann man gerne kritisieren. Sollte man vielleicht auch. Aber es wurde hier den Kräften Vorschub geleistet, die den ÖRR als Feindbild sehen und grundsätzlich in Frage stellen! Das hätte die #SocialMediaDivision sehen müssen!
Wer jetzt plötzlich mit Kräften unter einer Decke steckt, die er da normalerweise nicht haben will, darf sich nicht wundern und wird imho auch nicht den Ansprüchen als Aushängeschild der #Bundeswehr gerecht! Damit bestätigt man leider wieder viele Vorurteile gegenüber Soldaten!

2 Geleneksel bir #Türkevi her şeyden önce geleneksel malzeme ile inşa edilmelidir. Öyle plan şemasını veya cephe oranlarını taklit edip betonarme villa modunda Türk evi olmaz. Image
3 Ayrıca geleneksel bir #Türkevi bir mahallede, köyde, yerleşim yerinin içinde bulunur. Öyle bir kenarda ıssız bir yerde olmaz. Lüks bir villadan bahsetmiyorum. Havuzlu korunaklı yüksek duvarlı ya da bir site içinde değil. Yaşamın ram ortasında. Image

Das wird jetzt ein längerer #Thread und ein #rant zur anrollenden zweiten Welle von #COVID19. Herrn @rudi_anschober bitte ich das aufmerksam zu lesen und dem Herrn Hacker, der für das erwähnte Testgeschehen mitverantwortlich ist möge das bitte auch zur Kenntnis gebracht werden.
Ich hatte am vergangenen Samstag zu Mittag engen familiären Kontakt zu jemandem der sich Samstag abends infolge zusätzlich plötzlich auftretenden Fiebers als Corona-verdächtig eingestuft, die 1450 gewählt und Testzusage erhalten hat. /1
Nennen wir jemand „Y“. Seit Kenntnis dieses Umstands (Samstag Nacht) befinde ich mich in freiwilliger Quarantäne. Übrigens ohne Rechtsgrundlage aber vom Dienstgeber wohl oder übel geduldet. Warum mache ich das? /2

Rowling's TERF manifesto is now out there, complete with disabling comments. She's not interested in discourse, only in furthering the backwards logic of TERFs who don't understand what it means to be transgender.

#rant #terf #JKRowling

1/
She calls Maya's position a "philosophical belief." She doesn't acknowledge that it's a "belief" against medical science. That doctors and researchers agree in the spectrum of sex in addition to the spectrum of gender.
2/
She talks about how her research into trans and gender issues lead her to her TERF-y conclusions. She says she talked to actual trans people. Only to think us disturbed? Clearly she wasn't listening to us due to her own pre-conceived notions.

Le pulsioni iconoclaste degli ultimi giorni mi spingono a condividere con voi un rant su memoria, celebrazione e adesione.
Cosa celebriamo? Cosa ricordiamo? Chi lo decide?
#thread #memoria #rant #iconoclastia
1/11
Una statua di Colston viene abbattuta, una di Churchill viene imbrattata. Da noi si fanno battute sulle statue degli imperatori romani e sulle tracce ancora evidenti del fascismo.
Ma si tratta sempre della stessa cosa? Dobbiamo applicare sempre lo stesso trattamento?
2/11
La prima cosa, qualunquista, da dire è che ovviamente ogni persona (e per estensione ogni istituzione e ogni periodo storico) ha luci e ombre.
Qui dobbiamo farci due domande. La prima è: quella persona ha portato più avanti le luci o le ombre?

So I guess I'm doing it. #rant

I will forever #HoldFancopsAccountable for muddying the terms CSEM and cp, for equating these terms with FICTION. People's reaction to "I have receipts this person has CP" should not be "dm me?" or "are we talking lolishit or real ones this time?"
For context you can see what's happening here -
For the people who are blocked I've attached just some of the screenshots
A big anti account called Suspect_Tweets - which developed its following by "calling out" artists who creat art not to their fancy, sometimes NSFW, sometimes SFW that they found disgusting like gachimuchinl style aged up nooklings

Things I am over - hypocrisy and inconsistency

1) If peaceful #protest on the steps of government buildings is a right, than it also is on a football field #TakeAKnee, in a park, etc

#Thread #equity #rant (1/8)
2) If we ban #guns from some buildings in the interest of security, that means for all people - not just those that aren't white

3) If #BlueLivesMatter, do not risk our brave protectors’ health by protesting near them without #masks

#MichiganProtest (2/8)
4) If you are not wearing #facemasks given your personal #liberty, than why do women not get extended the same for #Reproductiverights

5) If all life is sacred, than why would we sacrifice 2-3% of our population by #ReopenAmerica too quickly?

Hydroxychloroquin!

Die Arbeitsgruppe um Professor Raoult hat einen Preprint veröffentlicht zu ihrer aktuellen Interventionsstudie über den Einsatz von Hydroxychloroquin + Azithromycin bei COVID-Patienten.
Ihr Urteil: „The HCQ-AZ combination, when started immediately after diagnosis, is a safe and efficient treatment for COVID-19“. Geil! Sektkorken knallen, Leute umarmen sich - man darf ja wieder, gibt ein Heilmittel!?
Wohl kaum. Die Aussagekraft dieser Arbeit bewegt sich auf unterstem Niveau, aus ihr lässt sich keinerlei Entscheidung ableiten. Die Methodik ist … vorsichtig gesagt ungewöhnlich, die Ergebnisse ... stehen eher auf tönernen Füßen.

I love Academic Agent

But his recent crusade against Managerial Elites is misguided.

Fortunately in his latest vid, you can just about see professional activists shining from behind the thinning ranks of managerial elites.

Managerial elites peaked in 1969 with the Apollo program, and crashed in early 70s when McNamara's Whiz Kids & RAND Corp failed to manage the Vietnam War to success. Ever since the managerial scientism was considered weak policy source and outright bad policy seller.
The Vietnam War was concluded by the professional activist behind the TV camera and by the professional activist staffing an NGO.

Is it safe to say/admit that Parental Neglect and Absence of a Strong + Male Influence in a young girls life are the Top 2 prime cause of LJ? Our girls are usually introduced to the fkin 🐖 by their own bestie female 🐖 friend or classmate, to a khalera bhai, chichera bhai, etc
Our girl is introduced to the 🐖 on first date accompanied by female friend! Love happens, dates happen, filming, followed by blackmail and full blown LJ case! The fate of the girl is sealed of she is a major, educated, secular and believes in true love + all gods are the same!
That is the time the secular neglectful parents remember Hindu org like Bajrangdal, Agniveer, Hindu Jana Shakti, Bahinis etc etc

By the time any Hindu org intervenes, irreparable damage is already done!

Should've paid more attention to your daughter in the first place! #Rant

(1) Wie konnte es nur so weit kommen? Ein antifaschistischer #rant
Seit Jahrzehnten müssen sich Linke, Behinderte, Schwule, Sorben, Lesben, Transmenschen, PoC und Migranten sehr genau überlegen, in welche Gegenden sie sich allein "trauen" können, ob sie allein von einer Lesung,
(2) einer Veranstaltung nach Hause gehen oder allein von einer Demo abreisen können. Obdachlose wurden und werden immer wieder zu Opfern von Neonazis. Punks werden zu Opfern, Holocaustüberlebende werden zu Opfern, Juden und Muslime werden zu Opfern,
(3) Sozialarbeiter und Rentnerinnen - JEDER, der sich gegen Rechts öffentlich positioniert, kann JEDERZEIT zum Opfer ihres mörderischen Hasses werden. Es ist völlig egal, ob du einen Film über die Neonazi-Musikszene drehst,

Okay, Zeit für einen #Hass #Rant bezüglich Ärzten. In meinen Augen gibt's keine zu Unrecht verehrtere, überschätztere, selbstverliebtere Profession von Suppenkaspern. Fangen wir Mal mit der Gegenwart an: Suchtkranker, 33. Zwei Wochen runter von 20mg Methadon zuletzt. 1/viele
Meine Substitutionsärztin brillierte als ich äußerte, Entgiftung und Langzeittherapie anzustreben erst mal, mich von den bis dahin - weil Ziel klar - langsam reduzierten 20mg wieder hoch auf 80mg Methadon zu stufen. Weil "Rückfälle und Umentscheide vor Therapieantritt häufig" 2/
Ich sage mal ganz dezent Fuck You. Karlsruher Südstadt, jeder kennt die Praxis der was mit Drogen am Hut hat. 20mg sind kein Zuckerschlecken, 80mg würde ich als Kriegsverbrechen einstufen, was den Affen angeht. Entzug findet daheim statt, war von vorneherein klar. Ich setze mich

#Children

My association with schools brings me many invitations to attend their annual social events. (Annual gathering - Oldspeak)

Since last 15-20 years a constant theme of these events is Pollution, Waste management, Environment Protection
and not cutting trees.

From Kindergarten to Senior schools, children do same orchestrated dramas for adult audience that is only interested in clicking best possible snap of their lovely child.
There is no change in BEHAVIOUR of most children. They leave lights on, waste food and paper, constantly demand more and new stuff, fancy holidays and throw their trash everywhere.
Ideally school should not need sweepers if our children were actually well behaved.

Morning! Time for an angry tweet thread about this article on training surgeons. As a surgical educator, I am appalled by the assertions put forth here. Let me tell you why.

1/

nytimes.com/2019/05/30/wel…
The article starts off with, “Medical schools are noticing a decline in students’ dexterity…” I am a on the surgical faculty at one of the country’s best medical schools. I have not noticed this, nor has there been discussion of this around me.

2/
I am also the co-chair of the Surgical Education Research Group for the Association for Surgical Education. Not once has this issue been brought up. You might wonder whether an article was written about this, inspiring this article in the NYTimes. No, there has not.

Today I'm going to #rant about #haskell libraries. I'm a Haskell supporter, I think it's a great language, but that doesn't mean it doesn't have problems. Some of them are surprising and I want to talk about them.
At the end of the rant I will have tips for developers using Haskell and for libraries developers (in any language, some rules are universal) so bear with me. It's a long rant but there is a good ending ;).
A preamble first: one of the reasons why I decided to study haskell is because haskell had a good way to deal with errors and invalid inputs/states.

Pues ya vi el trailer de #Godzilla King of the Monsters y la verdad... como que no me prendió tanto como esperaba. Entre los kaiju que se identifican fácilmente están #Rodan, #Mothra, #KingGhidora y, obvio, Godzilla #ゴジラ #ゴジラキング・オブ・ザ・モンスターズ
Me gustó que al fin vamos a ver más monstruos del universo Toho en una adaptación de Hollywood... no me gustó la excusa chafa del trailer de los titanes, es una explicación que no necesitamos...
Además de que cada monstruo ya tiene un origen i.e. #KingGhidora es extraterrestre; #Mothra es la fuerza protectora de la naturaleza... etc. Dato curioso, #Rodan es una metáfora de la amenaza soviética y #Godzilla de la amenaza nuclear #ゴジラ #ラドン #モスラ #キングギドラ

A Paid Gacha is going on in Fate Grand/Order for their Anniversary. Let me briefly and aimlessly #rant about whaling🐋 or freemium currency in games, mostly Love Live and FGO. Don't expect this to be very insightful or deep. Feel free to ignore me. #FGO #FateGrandOrder #LLSIF
Now In-app purchases are actually great for devs and consumer's alike. Apple kicked this off on the Apple store with Newstands. Games going free has allowed for greater market penetration. However it's a little scary when most of their money comes from a very tiny % of users.
I don't actively play Love Live School Idol Festival anymore. Yet I still login for my daily bonuses a couple times a week, and that's about it. It's still a fun rhythm game so I keep it installed for when I am in the mood for such a thing, which is once every few months. #LLSIF

Y'all, I am so fucking sick and tired of Black people saying other Black people "act/talk white." #Rant #Thread
My anger about this today comes from a comment a Black woman made to me about how annoyed she is that the Obama girls "act white."
Full disclosure: this type of comment really bothers me because I've been told for most of my life that I "act/talk white."
