Where have "Women's Waves" gone in the past?

These women were in positions of power - responsible for crimes vs humanity, wars, ethnic cleansing & more!

Know yr history. DON'T repeat it!

We don't need another #WomensWave. We need #revolution!
.@HillaryClinton's crimes are many. Just a few:
-massive assaults on poor people
-labeled Black youth "super predators"
-carried out US wars in Middle East as Senator & Sec'y of State

Golda Meir, PM of #Israel
-supported the 1947-48 #Nakba
-backed war against #Syria & #Egypt
-refused to recognize the right of 350,000 #Palestinians to return to the homes they had been driven from during the 1967 war

Bon, habituellement, j’utilise twitter pour dire tout le mal que je pense de plein de choses.

À l’heure du grand débat, je vais tenter de faire une proposition pour modifier en profondeur l’exécution des peines et l’associer à la transition écologique.

Ma réflexion est partie de deux choses: en tant que juge de l’application des peines, on m’a parlé de la ferme de Moyembrie à peu près au même moment que sur France culture, ils parlaient des « villes en transition (écologique).
La ferme de Moyembrie est une structure associative qui reçoit des personnes condamnées sous écrou mais qui purgent leur peine en placement extérieur.

Voici le dernier passage télé sur la structure :

To My Fellow Countrymen!


An epistle of conscience to Nigerian Youths; a people in dire need of emancipation from mental slavery. A clarion call to stall an impending repeat of an evil cycle.

1./ Politics may be a choice, but governance is not. Those who say they don't care about who leads them because they hate the dirt and evil of politics will reap without doubt the fruit of governance... whether good or bad. [Cont'd]
2./ According to Pluto, "one of the penalties of refusing to participate in politics in that you end up being governed by your inferiors". And these penalties we've suffered as a result of decades of a collective behavior of self-denial like the proverbial ostrich.

Foi há pouco mais de meio século, em um compromisso pelo emblemático Staples Center, quando o Golden State Warriors ensaiava os seus primeiros recados para a NBA.
Embora, na visão de alguns, o processo estivesse adiantado por temporadas anteriores, existiam pilares a serem moldados – enquanto outros sequer eram descobertos.
O compromisso se desenrola da forma como a franquia nos acostumou atualmente, mesmo com Stephen Curry muito distante de alguns atributos que reverberam seus arremessos contemporâneos e eloquentes. Klay Thompson, famigerado pela mecânica calibrada, contribui com 38 pontos.

Le @CollectifCoSE a publié dans le journal Le Monde un article qui alerte sur les dangers des écrans.… Malheuresmenet le constat fait repose sur des erreurs d'interprétation voire de fausses allégations #Thread
La tribune du #CoSE fait état d’une “épidémie des troubles mentaux” chez les écoliers en faisant état d'une hausse de 24% des troubles intellectuels et cognitifs, de 54% pour les troubles psychiques et de 94% pour les troubles de la parole et du langage;
Pour le #CoSE cette augmentation n'est pas liée a l'application de la loi de 2005 sur l'inclusion scolaire pourtant mais cette affirmation n'est pas étayée. C'est donc tout simplement une opinion non fondée

Long #THREAD discussing questions:

💭 What is intersex?
💭Is ____ intersex?
Preface: everyone is different, this is of course one opinion. Also, while they are common themes among intersex people, medical trauma, non-consensual surgeries, or even a diagnosis are not requirements to ID as intersex, and we don't endorse gatekeeping.
What is or is not intersex is somewhat subjective. At its simplest, IDing as #intersex is about having experiences with your body's inherent sex differences, and if that word feels right to you.

#THREAD: the #Epstein case vs the #MichaelJackson case: for those talking about "getting away" with "crimes", let's take a look at how (white) privilege really works. And why nobody talks about Epstein, while #MJ is being subjected to another slanderous mockumentary. (1)
For a good comparison, we'll take a look at the timeline of the #Epstein case versus that of the #MJ case. You'll see the differences in approach, treatment and mediatic consequences by yourself. #JusticeforMJ #ExposeTheLiars (2)…
As per screenshot 1, the parents of #Epstein's alleged victim, a 14-y.o. girl, reported the alleged crime to the police. In 1993, the first allegations against MJ started with an extortion plan and a search for a "highly profitable settlement". (3) More:…

Something really important and outrageous just happened today in Brazil that exposes the corruption at the heart of the Bolsonaro movement — the exact type of corruption that they promised to stamp out. #THREAD
2 On December 6, @Estadao broke the story that a govt body investigated the finances of Rio state legislators and their staffs and discovered a US$320K in "irregular" bank transactions by a staffer to @FlavioBolsonaro, @jairbolsonaro's son.…
3 The staffer, Fabrício José Carlos de Queiroz, is a cop and worked as Flavio's driver. His monthly salary was $2,272 plus another $3,361 from the police. Queiroz made large cash withdrawals and received deposits from 8 of Flavio's other staffers.

The Academic Staff Union of Universities @ASUUNGR have asked @AsoRock to release N50 billion to demonstrate its commitment to the revitalisation of public universities, in line with previous agreements with the union.
The ₦50 billion will form the first tranche of the ₦220 billion government agreed for the project this year which will be added to the ₦20 billion earlier released for the year.

The @ICE_Foundation has been abolished.
But what was it?

Allegedly a "grassroots effort," the ICE Foundation (2010-2018) was a non-profit org led by former ICE & DHS officials turned corporate leaders & lobbyists that used to "bring together govt & industry leaders" from tech, mass incarceration and elsewhere, ostensibly for charity.
It never received media attention except for when @alexkotch wrote this great article breaking it down last summer, which "raised questions about [ICE-F's] possible inside access to ICE officials, and to those assigning government contracts."…

Ordinarily, I would leave this kind of religious illiteracy & historical ignorance by the wayside. It predominates across too many of our discussions, and I cannot keep up. But this kind of statement then animates into policies that hurt real people. So, here goes: #Thread
The idea that an amorphous 'Sunni' population has been killing an amorphous 'Shi'i' population since time immemorial is ridiculous. Around 90% of the world's Muslim population is Sunni. If they had been bent on killing all Shi'is, I doubt we'd be talking about this in 2019.
At Karbala, there were no 'Sunnis' & 'Shi'is'. The crystallisation of the Sunni & Shi'i followings into separate groupings had not taken place. This massacre took place less than 60 years after the passing of the Prophet. Calling anyone 'Sunni' at this point is incredulous.

'Heroism & patrotism. A lesson from Kenya.'

The world has come to accept the fact that just like burglary & carjacking, terrorism has come to stay. I personally have come to terms with the fact that just like you can never tell when the next carjacking will happen
so are acts of terrorism unpredictable. This now makes me wonder at the lives of our men/women in law enforcement & first responders who show up at the scene bearing in mind that no day on the job is ordinary. What they don’t know for sure is what danger they will face when they
rush out on a call. Will they walk into a hostage situation like Kenya hotel a few hours ago? Or get caught up in an explosion from a suicide bombers vest? Or walk smack into a hail of bullets from the rounds of an automatic weapon fired by the devils sent to stop our peaceful

जेएनयू के हरामखोरों के खिलाफ कार्रवाई से अधिक जरूरी है, उनको बढ़ावा देनेवाले बुद्धिपिशाचों को दंड मिलना.


ओम थानवी और उन जैसों के नाम खुला पत्र,
आप जैसे तथाकथित बुद्धिजीवी, जो देश को तोड़नेवालों के साथ खड़े हों, किसी भी सामान्य बुद्धि वाले के आदरणीय हो नहीं सकते
प्रिय होने का सवाल ही नहीं, इसलिए यह पत्र बिना संबोधन के ही है। यह पत्र आपकी उस बेतुकी बयानबाजी और झूठ के खिलाफ है, जो आपने जेएनयू के उन देशद्रोही लौंडों के पक्ष में लिखा है, जिनमें से एक तो लड़की छेड़ने का अभियुक्त था और बाकायदा दंड भी भर चुका है। अब आपके झूठ का विखंडन---
मीडिया का एक हिस्सा (जिसमें आप, पंडित रवीश कुमार, उर्मिलेश यादवा आदि-इत्यादि शामिल हैं और यह बड़ा हिस्सा है), देशद्रोहियों को राजद्रोही बताकर कानूनी पेचीदगी पर बात करता है। यह सीधे तौर पर एक व्यक्ति पीएम के विरोध के नाम पर देश का विरोध है।

I am as impatient as they come but by God, I AM pushing myself to up my “waiting” game this year.

To wait specifically on the good Lord when I go to Him in prayer & supplication.

Waiting also has major benefits...


#waitingonGod #patienceisavirtue #christianity
1. Waiting strategically can cultivate good fruit in our lives such as patience, perseverance, and endurance.

2. Waiting also draws us closer to our Saviour and points those who are watching us to His gospel.

#waitingonGod #patienceisavirtue #christianity
If like me you have made your request known to God Almighty, and now you are meditating and waiting, here are 10 things you could be doing while you wait...

Feeling dejected about #Brexit? Well don't!

The UK still holds all the cards. They just need to be played correctly.

A short #Thread from Leave colleagues from the far south to the distant north of our wonderful island. With thanks to @ScotsForLeaveEU

1/ The EU & Irish govt have said that there will be no hard border with NI in the event of “no deal” at UK exit. But this means that the EU has also accepted that the EU is bound to do a ‘zero-for-zero’ deal with no tariff barriers with the UK.
2/ The border is frictionless & invisible, no checkpoints or other facilities at the border with the NI (& thus the UK). Tariffs are paid electronically, just as VAT & Excise are paid now; animal checks are done away from the physical border at approved facilities; & sanitary...

Let me share with you the funny reason I gave my life to Christ. The story of my salvation.

My parents married each other with their religious differences. Dad was a Muslim and Mum a Christian. They were both happy with their decision and like mum said, they decided they'll worship separately without problems since there is only one God. Like stew, joy was everywhere 😅
Issues came by later as kids came. Questions arose; Who would bend his/her ego to join the other in religion? In what religion should the children be raised? Should their Muslim names be registered officially in school? Or should we just split the children in religion?

En 1995, les élèves de Centrale Paris (Supélec) souhaitent un réseau plus rapide pour jouer aux premiers jeux en ligne. Les geeks de l'époque avaient déjà leurs petites priorités...
Mais l'école refuse d'investir puisque son réseau est amplement suffisant pour les échanges de mails et la consultation du web de 1995. Les élèves ingénieurs vont alors se tourner vers des industriels, et notamment Bouygues, pour financer leur nouveau réseau.
Et c'est là que les techniciens de TF1 leur demandent s'il est possible de diffuser les flux satellites sur le réseau de l'école, en n'ayant qu'une seule parabole pour tout le campus (et pas 1500 paraboles avec 1500 décodeurs). Et d'utiliser les ordinateurs pour décoder le flux.

Spent the last few days traveling in the SS and SE, visiting FG #Infrastructure projects. What I saw makes me very hopeful about the future of Nigeria.

High point: getting on a boat on River Niger, to watch the amazing work JB is doing on the new Bridge.

#Thread loading soon.
So my #infrastructure journey in the last one week:

Port Harcourt—Ogoniland (Bonny-Bodo Bridges)—Afam (240MW Afam Fast Power Plant—Aba (Ariaria Market Electrification Project—Onitsha/Asaba (Second Niger Bridge)—Warri (Delta Ports)—Itakpe (#ItakpeWarriRail)

The 1st site I visited: the Bonny-Bodo Bridges and Road Project in Ogoniland

Scope: 3 main bridges (across Afa Creek, Opobo Channel & Nanabie Creek) + Road —38km Total — connecting Bodo on Mainland to Bonny Island

Tra il serio ed il faceto, un #thread sull’intervista odierna a #Renzi. Parte lanciatissimo, con la modestia che lo contraddistingue, citando Zemeckis. Ma non siamo al cinema.
Si dia il via alla sagra degli autogol...
Alla domanda su #Carige, ha l’ardire di rispondere portando ad esempio Etruria! Ma ci si può fare così male? Citare il caso più maldestro di gestione di crisi bancaria, con obbligazionisti subordinati azzerati solo perché subì in silenzio il divieto #UE all’intervento del FITD?
Il crescendo prosegue. A proposito del #RedditodiCittadinanza, #Renzi attinge vette altissime. Con ‘paga Pantalone’ e ‘divano’, si situa a cavallo tra il bar dello sport e ‘lavoro, guadagno, pago, pretendo’ dell’indimenticato Dogui.😂

मैंने कई बार ये लिखा है कि महिलाओं के शोषण वाली तीन प्रथाएं, बाल विवाह, पर्दा प्रथा और दहेज प्रथा इस्लाम की बुराइयां हैं जो मुसलमानों से हिन्दुओं में आयीं और उनको आज तक प्रभावित कर रही हैं। इसमें बाल विवाह से जुड़े दो तथ्य बताता हूं।

साल १८९४ में मैसूर के राजा कृष्णदत्त वडियार चतुर्थ ने बाल विवाह पर कानूनी रोक लगा दिया था। उस वक्त १४ वर्ष से कम उम्र की लड़कियों के विवाह को अपराध घोषित कर दिया गया था।
बहुत बाद में १९३० में भारत की नेशनल असेम्बली ने बाल विवाह पर रोक लगाने के लिए जब कानून बनाया तो इसी मैसूर ..
राज्य के कानून को अपना आधार बनाया और १४ साल से कम उम्र की लड़कियों के विवाह पर रोक लगा दी।
क्योंकि यह कानून इस्लाम में मौजूद बाल विवाह प्रथा के खिलाफ था इसलिए उन्होंने बाल विवाह विरोधी कानून को इस्लाम विरोधी मानते हुए इसका विरोध किया।
