#IPL is spreading hate amongst the citizens and minting money.

This is not a new analysis and it's known for most people but after watching yesterday's incident between #RCBvLSG this is the right time for all the cricket fans not to fall into this trap. 1/n
IPL has always been everything about #MONEY and #entertainment. The teams were based on most popular cities in #India so that each team will have larger fan following and representation, just like #football leagues. 2/n
The people behind #IPL were/are biggest #businessmen, #Celebrities from various fields and #politicians. It gathered enough attention when it got started as new league in 2008. Just because IPL has celebs backing doesn't mean it's gonna be a superhit league in the long run. 3/n

⭐️Gender Identification or Gender Dysphoria
A disease propagated by the Left ideologues in the society.
Let us see how Left Kabal is destroying our social institutions:
#Gender #Woman #Man #Left #Right #India #Society #LGBTQ #Transgender #SameSexMarriage Image
1. Sex is the biological expression of our genotype in the form of phenotype while gender is a social expression based on the cultural evolution of ethos and eidos.
#Gender #Woman #Man #Left #Right #India #Society #LGBTQ #Transgender #SameSexMarriage
2. Our social institutions like family, marriage, and kinship all are based on values prescribed to gender-based roles.

یہ انڈیا میں عدالت کی طرف سے حکم ہے کہ ریپ ریپ ہے چاہے شوہر ہی کیوں نہ کرے
عدالت کے اس فیصلے نے عام عوام کی کنفیوزن دور کر دی کہ زبردستی کاجنسی تعلق بغیر اجازت کے ریپ ہی ہے چاہے اسکا لائسنس اپکے پاس ہوشادی کی صورت میں
اس فیسبک پوسٹ کے کمینٹ میں 100% پاکستانی مرد

پاکستانی مرد حضرات سمجھتے ہیں ک نکاح نامہ پہ دستخط جنسی تعلق کی کھلی اجازت ہے
اگر انکی وجہ سے بیوی دو روٹیاں کھارہی ہے تو جنسی تعلق انکا ہر حال میں حق ہے
اک صاحب انہی کمنٹس میں لکھتے ہیں
بیوی کے لیئے زبردستی جھیلنا اتنا مشکل نہیں جتنا کہ شوہر کہ لیئے ٹاکسک باسز کو جھیلنا


افسوس کی بات ہے کہ کوئ مرد خاص طور پہ اپنی بیوی کے لیئے ایسا کیسے سوچ سکتا ہے
بات اتنی اسان ہے
پر اتنی مشکل بنائ ہوئ ہے یا سمجھنا نہیں چاہتے

Pondering the most socially & politically powerful tropes and memes (social constructs - please see R Dawkins’ “The Selfish Gene (you what?),” 1976) of the crazy-arsed 1880’s City of London we may stumble back some decades down a handy Memory Lane 2 our secondary school studies

“the typical tragic man, [palaru] tragic hero.. impulsive, arrogant & honest, ambitious at the same time.. moral value supported his control over his wife, dau. & lover”

As a society, we must ensure that the #AI systems we are building are #inclusive and #equitable. This will only happen through increased transparency and #diversity in the field. Using already "dirty data" is not the way

Using biased data to train AI has serious consequences, particularly when data is controlled by large corporations with little #transparency in their training methods

For fair & #equitable AI we need Web3 democratized & agendaless data for AI training

The use of flawed #AI training datasets propagates #bias, particularly in #GPT-type models which are now widely hyped but are controlled by compromised #Web2 MNCs who have a poor track record in #privacy, protecting civil #liberty & preserving free speech…

Good morning #medtwitter! Today #scientissimum would like to show you a #publichealth case of poor working conditions. Did you know that according to @WHO almost 2million people die from work-related causes each year? 450,000 deaths were related to workplace air #pollution 💨
(particulate matter, gases, and fumes). Any #job in the world has a meaning, whether you are a #doctor, #constructionworker or #janitor - each plays a very important role in the #society. However, no money in the world can ever buy the #health you need to continue #living and
and enjoying your #life. #Work smart and don’t expose yourselves to the dangerous situations, that may lead to the tragic outcomes!🦺

@bob_way 1/ First and probably most important, I want to express my appreciation.

Talking about #anonymity and #privacy appears to be becoming increasingly frowned upon. Seeing your open and refreshing ideas on the subject definitely helped me open my eyes even further.
. . .
@bob_way 2/ . . .
As you have already indicated, we must first educate people on the distinction between #anonymity and #privacy.

Most individuals do not fully comprehend #cash and the challenges surrounding its "disposal".

@bob_way 3/ . . .
As you pointed out, we do not have #anonymity when purchasing a beer in a bar, but because the cashier will only print a receipt and will not send any personal informations about my nightly activities back to the government or any other company,

#Indonesia’s new criminal code is absolutely illiberal, but it is not anti-legal. It serves the interests of some #elites, but not others.

So, how do we best parse its impact on #law, #politics, or #society?

A short 🧵based on ideas from:…

Fundamentally, it pushes Indonesia’s criminal law system toward what I call a mobilizational legal regime, and away from being more of a ’rule by law’ order.

This is due to a reason many might find counter-intuitive: it’s actually empowering previously excluded groups.

In a mobilizational legal regime, the set of politically empowered actors (what I call the ‘polity’) is open and contested. In some other arrangements - including rule by law - it is closed and fixed.
The constellation of politics shapes how law is made and deployed.

My contribution to the #electricity market debate, today at @voxeu
Thread 🧵…
1/Von der Leyen “Current electricity market design is not doing justice to consumers They should reap the benefits of lowcost renewables We will do a deep and comprehensive reform of electricity markets”…
Which should be the building blocks of the reform?
2/ On the objectives:
➡️*Productive efficiency*: demand must be met by the plants with the lowest marginal costs 📉📈
➡️*Investment efficiency*: investments must take place at the right scale, mix, and locations 🌞🍃
➡️*Equity*: prices should be cost-reflective 🪙

کچھ عرصہ سے فیسبک پر ایسی پوسٹس تواتر کے ساتھ دکھ رہی ہیں کہ میں یتیم لڑکی سے شادی کرنا چاہتا ہوں
دکھ درد کی ماری ایسی لڑکی کی تلاش میں ہوں جس کے ماضی نے اسے توڑ دیا ہو وغیرہ وغیرہ
یہ سب ڈرامے بازی ہے
شکار کے لیے پھیلایا جانے والا جال ہے
اگر اتنی ہی ہمدردی ہے
++ Image
تو سوشل میڈیا پر ڈرامہ بازی کرنے سے بہتر ہے یتیم خانے/ دارالامان جائیں
وہاں آپ کی نیکی کی خواہش بھی پوری ہوجائیگی اور اُن یتیم/ بے سہارا لڑکیوں کے نکاح کا انتظام بھی ہوجائے گا
یہ لڑکیاں واقعتاً یتیم اور دکھوں کی ماری ہوتی ہیں
ان کے ماضی نے انہیں واقعی توڑ دیا ہوتا ہے
فیسبک/ٹیوئٹر پر اگر کوئی حقیقتاََ یہ نیکی کرنا چاہتا ہے تو اپنے اردگرد محلے، علاقے میں نظر دوڑائے تو اسے ایسے لوگ مل جائینگے جو وہ سوشل میڈیا پر تلاش کر رہا ہے
اگر ایسی کوئی پوسٹ/ ٹیوئٹ آپ کو نظر آئے تو اسے دارالامان کا راستہ دکھا دیں

سوائے بچے پیدا کرنے کہ یہ قوم کچھ بھی پیدا نہی کررہی
نہ کوئ نئی کتاب لکھ رہا
نہ شاعری کررہا
نہ کوئ کام کی فلم بناسکتے ہم
کپڑوں کے بھی تھان بناکر بیچتے
ناشتے کے سیرلز تک نہیں بناتے
گندم چاول مکئ باہر بیچتے
اور باہر سے ناشتے کے لیے سیریلز بنے بنائے منگواتے

اگر آپکو اپنی بیوی بدصورت لگتی ہے اسکے چہرے پہ ، ہونٹوں ہاتھ اور بازووں پہ بال ہیں تو ان بالوں کو تھریڈنگ ویکسنگ کے ذریعے صاف کیا جاسکتا ہے
اگر بیگم کا چہرہ چکنا چمکتا محسوس نہیں ہوتا
تو چہرے کو نکھارنے کے لئے ہزار دو ہزار کا فیشل اور بلیچ ہوتا ہے

اگر بیوی کے چہرے پر رونق نہیں ہے تو دودھ دہی اور پھل کھلائیں
یقین کریں آپکی بیوی بھی دیکھنے لائق ہوجائیگی
اگر اتنی گنجائش نہیں تو یہاں وہاں منہ مارنے سے گریز کریں
کیونکہ جن چکنی چمیلیوں کو خوبصورت سمجھ کے انکی مدح سرائی کرتے ہیں
وہ بھی اتنے خرچوں کے بعد ہی دیکھنے لائق بنتی ہیں
