A. K. Fazlul Huq, the Prime Minister of #Bengal, presented the resolution, which was authored and compiled by Muhammad Zafarullah Khan and served as a formal statement of the party's vision for the future of Muslim #India.

The document famously stated that "...the areas in which the Muslims are numerically in a majority as in the North Western and Eastern Zones of India should be grouped to constitute ‘independent states’ in which the constituent units should be autonomous and sovereign."

#SAT Update✨

Cyber-attack on #Khalistan Referendum in Australia caused disruption in voting thrice.

This, coupled with the arrest of #AmripalSingh in India & a mega crackdown in the Indian state of #Punjab is causing ripples.

A 🧵

Mobile internet remained down in #IndianPunjab as the police searched & chased people associated with 'Waris Punjab De' - a collective headed by Amritpal Singh, that supports an independent Punjab.

Sideways, in #Brisbane, the 2nd phase of #KhalistanReferendum came under alleged India-backed #cyberttack on electronic voting machines.

The 1st attack took 30 minutes to be fixed & the other 2 took 20 mints each.

The turn out of the voting was 11,000.

The Bucher Papers - A 🧵

#India has long been accused of attempting to stop the declassification of documents from 1947 pertaining to #Kashmir out of concern that the "sensitive" letters might have an impact on international relations.

The letters, also known as the Bucher papers, are thought to include political and military grounds for Jawaharlal Nehru, #India's first prime minister, to request a cease-fire with #Pakistan and grant the state of Jammu & Kashmir special status.

For the current nationalist government in Delhi, which has derided Nehru's decision to reach a compromise on status of disputed Kashmir as an ignorant "blunder," the correspondence from the then-commander-in-chief, Gen. Roy Bucher, will have major political implications.

#SAT History✨

Alongside the busiest Mathura Road in Delhi, the newly-renovated garden tomb overlooks the Yamuna river.

But do you know of the poet this monument houses?

This massive square edifice with a central dome is the tomb of Abdul Rahim Khan-e-khanan – one of the nine jewels of Mughal Emperor Akbar.

The structure is one among an almost 100 historic mausoleums in this vicinity of #Delhi.

2/10 Image
What is even more interesting is the fact that two other timeless poets are buried within hardly a kilometer of stretch.

The legends being Mirza Ghalib & Amir Khusro. But history could not accord a similar stature to Abdul Rahim & the neglect his tomb faced speaks of it.

The new #SAT report is out.

- Every racial group had a composite SAT score drop, except Native Americans (up 9 points) & those who did not respond on race
- Every racial group had a participation increase
- Men & women both increased participation 15% & lowered scores 11 points Image
The reformed verbal/critical reading section is maintaining its scores as well as the math section, so far, unlike previous versions of the SAT. Image
Citizenship is no longer reported, but English-only students dropped to the level of English-as-a-2nd-language students. However, students who didn't give their language took the SAT more than ESL students for the 1st time in 2022, while these non-responders' scores plummeted. Image

Here is a hard question for #bitcoin maxis (and plebs):

Why will we end up with 21 million coins in the end?

You think this is easy? Let's see... 🧵 of 21 👇
1. We all know the easy answer: because in its first halving cycle, #bitcoin created 10.5 million coins (50 block subsidy coins * 210,000 blocks), and half that in the next, etc. After a number of cycles, we will have close to 21 million coins.

But I'm asking why, not how.
2. Let's dig in. #Satoshi was (partly) a coder, so he was obsessed with the powers of 2. Many generations of computers have been built on these powers: 8 / 16 / 32 and 64-bit computing and operating systems - to mention just the most obvious.

#SupremeCourt hears the Franklin Templeton case.

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta appears for SEBI

Justice Abdul Nazeer: there are some matters pending before us Image
Sr Adv AM Singhvi: There is no pending matter

SG: The very foundation of fundamental error is wrong. We want them to deposit the amount in escrow account. The interim order is wrong since only profits can be directed to be returned.
SG: The tribunal has grossly erred that they have failed to note that in terms of Regulation 12.1 of SEBI mutual funds, its not gross amount which is taken, In addition to management fees, the asset mgmt scheme may charge following expenses.

So is anyone curious how test prep companies responded to the #testoptional movement?

Follow me down the rabbit hole

First let's touch on a little history:

1926 - first #SAT
1936 - Kaplan founded
1978 - first full sample SAT released by CB
1979 - "Truth-in- Testing" Act. passed in NY
1980 - CB begins selling 5 Real SATs
1981 - Princeton Review founded
So the test prep industry has largely grown lockstep with the testing industrial complex

(dear educational researchers and economists please do more work on the growth of private tutoring companies and shadow education in the US since 1930)

I received an @ACT report today based on a survey of enrollment leaders that I participated in regarding pre-COVID, COVID, & post-COVID testing policies.

While the folks at ACT provided an interpretation of the responses, I thought I'd share some of the data and my own insights.
Most COVID #testoptional adopters are NOT going back to requiring #SAT or #ACT test scores.

The value & impact of the #SAT & #ACT is permanently diminished.

Test score score requirements are no longer "the norm"... they are outliers.
Far too many universities are still using #SAT and #ACT scores - that have problematic correlations with family income, gender, and race & ethnicity - for merit scholarships and financial aid.

A note to colleagues at #testoptional universities: Let's put an end to this practice.

En marzo de 2019 el presidente @lopezobrador_ dijo haber enviado al rey de #España una carta que nunca apareció pese a solicitarse a través del @INAImexico hoy por una pregunta de @Alejandro_Lelo sobre el tema desde #PalacioNacional señala que la hará pública pero aprovecha
Machucheramente para atacar nuevamente al @INAImexico y a los órganos independientes.
Y señala @lopezobrador_ que la liquidación de los #fideicomisos había Corrupción que nunca acreditó sólo fue su dicho, su boca que es enorme por cierto.
Ahora el grupo rapaz se encuentra en el poder es tan hipócrita que olvida @lopezobrador_ q cerró la información x 20 años sobre la construcción del 2do piso.
