Europe has made a huge and far-reaching political gift to Russia with its own hands. Sanctions have divided the entire Western (and above all European) world into anti-Russian and pro-Russian. And Russia has done nothing for this. Everything was done by the European authorities
The pro-Russian community is still in the minority. And it represents to a greater extent countries that are heavily dependent on Russian energy raw materials. But trends will change, and the secret will become clear. Anti-Russian sentiments are
popular among radicals. While pragmatists and realists firmly secure the label of "agents of the Kremlin". The fact that a rational and reasonable vector has been and remains almost the main approach of the Russian authorities in building partnerships with European countries all

In Feb 2020 #SARSCOV2 #COVID19 was
risk to the entire #society

In Apr 2022, COVID-19
it is #individual risk.

Why there shouldn’t be any universal restrictions?

Why schools should remain open?

Why masks should be voluntary?

Context of arguments is #India

A thread 🧵

In Feb 2022, #SARS CoV2 was a new or novel virus.

Everyone was susceptible as no one had prior immunity.

The risk by age & other factors was unknown & unpredictable.

The only way was ‘universal restriction’
to slow down the transmission, prepare health services

And developing scientific and epidemiological understanding.

The precautions such as
physical distancing and
face masks also has to be mandatory.

All of These were new to people.

Citizen not following these whd hv increased the risk to other, which was unknown.

17. Hi, this is @akgungor_c again. Let’s come back to where we had left: Post-disaster controversies… These are indeed closely associated with how we individually and socially (re)construct the #catastrophe.
18. A disaster is the outcome(s) of a physical occurrence as well as how we perceive and process them. Like any “event”, for every disaster, there are as many accounts as the number of people who’ve been exposed to it.
19. Individual #narratives of a disaster are the expression of how we position ourselves vis-a-vis the catastrophe and its effects on us, in a sense, fabricating our own #reality.

1. Hello Radix’ers, @akgungor_c here. I’m glad to be with you this week. It will be a pleasure for me to post here. My thing is to generate and “mobilize” information & knowledge to assist organizations and communities with respect to emergencies & disasters.
2. An eternity ago, I defended a Ph.D. thesis in political science in which I had mainly focused on #disaster and #sociopolitical #change. At that time, I thought I would not spend a single more minute on that text but instead leave it to collect dust in the French archives.
3. And after I walked away from academia, I literally forgot about it for a long period, until a couple of years ago. In fact, I’m catching myself -more and more- thinking about some of the conclusions I had drawn back then.

I've been thinking a lot about the occupation/protests in Ottawa and have been inspired by work being done by colleagues and others to understand the dynamics of public opinion and the impact on political behaviour.

#FreedomConvoy2022 #cdnpoli #society #mrx #polling #canada
And I think our political future will depend upon having a really good understanding of the opinion landscape.

This is especially true for those who lead orgs in business, media, and government. As I'll show you, you don't see the world in the same way as everyone else.
In preparing for a briefing for a client on tax fairness, affordability, and public policy in Canada, I went back to a survey we did for @PIPSC_IPFPC and @broadbent in July 2021.

A lot of the same concerns I see today in polling existed then...

Al- Salam Alykum everyone, I’m Zeinab Seid Ahmed, a mother and secondary school teacher. I have been a teacher for 15+ years now, for me teaching is not just a profession, it’s our guaranteed plan to flourish as a nation and that’s exactly what I keep repeating to my students
You are our hope for a better tomorrow”
Being a mother and a teacher offers me a great opportunity to help my daughters & students shape their futures. Unfortunately sometimes the decision isn’t in their hands nor mine. Today Im going to share the story of my dear student Fatima.
Fatima was one of my brilliant students, she was delightful & energetic, aspiring to become a lawyer. She was full of hopes and dreams that she wanted to pursue.
Suddenly Fatima was absent from class for a while, I was worried about her especially that she wouldn’t miss classes+

This is one thread on how the media, conglomerates like Disney and others sexualize childhood and children to make them more profitable consumers.
This is a second thread on the same topic, with excerpts from "Cinderella Ate My Daughter: Dispatches from the Front Lines of the New Girlie-Girl Culture", by Peggy Orenstein.
#media #society #childhood #sexualization
"What was the first thing that culture told her about being a girl? Not that she was competent, strong, creative, or smart but that every little girl wants - or should want - to be the Fairest of Them All."

Thread on the sexualization of children in society and the role the media, movies, and toys play.

These excerpts are from "So Sexy So Soon: The New Sexualized Childhood, and What Parents Can Do to Protect Their Kids", by Jean Kilbourne & Diane E. Levin
"A four-year-old girl, in the dramatic play area of her preschool, begins swaying her hips and singing, “Baby, I’m your slave. I’ll let you whip me if I misbehave.”"

"When her teacher goes over to talk to her about it, she volunteers that she learned the song from her eight-year-old sister. After doing a bit of research, the teacher discovers that the words are from a highly popular Justin Timberlake song."

(1/33) I wanted to share my thoughts on the implications of Artificial wombs and Social child-rearing.
(2/33) The artificial womb will arguably be the most promising and revolutionary technology in the next 20 years. It may first emerge as a complementary solution to the existing human system like the brain-computer interface.
(3/33) While brain-computer interfaces are designed to help the disabled with person-computer communication, artificial wombs end premature babies' deaths. Both technologies will eventually lead to a new society, a new future, and new possibilities.

Summary of Episode 4: Impact of Income Tax on your Investments💵

A thread(🧵)... Image
In one sense, when you're #investing, you're giving back to #Society, because you're giving them money.

The fact that you're giving to someone else means that Economic activity grows👇
Even in a #Bank, when you're #investing in a Savings Account, the bank will give you a little interest.

It will give that money in the form of a loan to some company or even give you back the same in the form of some EMI. 👇

Thank you @IWS_Network for giving me the opportunity to share my #story 💜 ! This a part of Voices Without Frontiers program… #IWS #WomenInSTEM #VoicesIWS #ecology #conservation #biodiversity
I was born in #saopaulo, #Brazil’s largest city, very different from the #Amazon Rainforest & Rio! See me and a #samauma, the most famous Amazon tree 🌳

I can say I lived in a great #rainforest because Sao Paulo & most of the coast of Brazil are in the Atlantic Forest 🌴🌺🐍. It is one of the 34 world’s #hotspots of #biodiversity, with more than 1500 plant species and 90% of original area loss. #VoiceIWS @IWS_Network Source: https://www.e-educa...

میں بچپن سے اب تک جنگ اتوار میں ضرورت رشتہ کے اشتہارات لازمی دیکھتی ہوں
مجھے نہ اشتہار کے ذریعے بیاہ کرنا تھا/ نا ہے مگرحالات کا ضرور پتہ لگتا
29 اکتوبر کے اخبار میں شائع شدہ یہ اشتہار دیکھ لیجیے
عمر 35 سال، انٹر، اردو سپیکنگ،آئل فیلڈ میں نچلے درجے کی ملازمت
شادی شدہ
شادی شدہ، بیوی 2 بچے ساتھ، آسٹریلیا، ترکی یا پاکستان میں اچھی ملازمت کے حصول کے لیے دوسری شادی کا خواہشمند ہوں
ترجیح معذور کسی بھی قسم کی، یا بیوہ وغیرہ، حقائق پر یقین رکھنے والے رابطہ کریں معرفت روزنامہ جنگ بکس نمبر

کیا معاشرتیات کی اک پوری کتاب نہیں لکھی جاسکتی اس پر؟
آئیے اس اشتہار کا تجزیہ کرتے ہیں
شروع میں ہی کہا جاسکتا ہے کہ یہ اشتہار جھوٹ بھی ہوسکتا سچ بھی
اگر جھوٹ ہے تو کسی سادہ لوح خوشحال معذور بیوہ وغیرہ کو پھانسنے کے لیے ہوگا
گر سچا اشتہار ہے تو یہ امید کی بجائے ناامیدی مایوسی کا اشتہار ہے

نکاح میں اگر اک فریق کی مرضی ہی شامل نہ ہو
اسے محض برادری میں رشتہ کرنے/جائیداد کو غیروں میں جانے سے روکنے کیلیے کسی ایسے فرد سے بیاہ دیاجائے جو اسے پسند ہی نہ ہو
یا اس کے بھائی جان کسی کو قتل کر آئے ہوں اور بدل صلح میں مقتول کےکسی عزیز سے اب اپنی بہن کو بیاہ رہے ہوں

تاکہ وہ سزا سے بچ سکیں یا وٹہ سٹہ میں کسی ناپسندیدہ آدمی سے اس کی شادی کرائی جا رہی ہو
تو سوال یہ پیدا ہوتا ہے کہ اس نکاح کی کیا حیثیت ہے؟
