#Thread : पी.एफ.आय वर बंदी का ? (भाग १)
सध्या पॉप्युलर फ्रंट ऑफ इंडिया हे नाव प्रचंड चर्चेत आलं आहे. काल, गृह मंत्रालयाने या संघटनेवर आणि या संघटनेशी संलग्न असलेल्या जवळपास सगळ्याच संघटनांवर बंदी आणली. यावरून नेहमी प्रमाणे 'Usual Suspects रडू लागले. 1/17 Image
पण, या गोष्टीकडे लक्ष न देता, पी.एफ.आय हि संघटना किती धोकायदायक आहे हे समजून घेणं खूप गरजेचं आहे.

केरळ हि काही वर्षांपासून 'जिहाद' चे संगोपनक्षेत्र झाल्यासारखे झाले आहे. याचे कारण तिथले सरकार आणि तिथले लोकसंख्याशास्त्र अर्थात 'डेमोग्राफी'. 2/17 Image
२००६ मध्ये पॉप्युलर फ्रंट ऑफ इंडिया या नावाने एक इस्लामिक संघटनेची स्थापना करण्यात आली. अनेक इस्लामिक संघटनांनी एकत्र येऊन या संघटनेची स्थापना केली. 3/17

For all those interested in the politics of memory - Germany + beyond - I 'd like to highlight two important contributions by historians @bartov_omer + Wulf Kansteiner, both paving the way to an inclusive + just memory in a postmigration society. #Thread

First I express my gratitude to reknown Holocaust historian @bartov_omer for quoting at length from my book “Understanding the Pain of Others”. Obviously, we agree that changes in the current Holocaust remembrance policy are unavoidable. 2/23
“Having known Germany before the current commemorative culture existed, I am aware of its precarity, and wary of what might replace it. But I am just as aware of its problematic role in at least two obvious respects.” 3/23

New Met police commissioner, Mark Rowley, has refused to meet the president of the National Black Police Association, & suggested he will ban officers from “taking the knee” - but he HAS met lobbyists from the hard-right Henry Jackson Society...

theguardian.com/uk-news/2022/s…
In 2018 we found out that Rowley, at the time the UK's top counter-terrorism police officer, had met officials from the right-wing extremist US think tank, the anti-abortion Henry Jackson Society, after agreeing to endorse a report on Islamist terrorism.

Mark Rowley is linked not just to the Henry Jackson Society, & the anti-abortion Heritage Foundation, he is also an "Academic Advisor" to the Tories' favourite opaquely funded free-market lobbying group, 'Policy Exchange', who have attacked our Police.

#Thread & #Ρεπορτάζ: Γιατί καθυστερεί η δίκη της #GreekMafia για το κύκλωμα μαφιόζων, αστυνομικών & δικηγόρων που αποκόμιζαν 1 εκατ. € το μήνα.

❗Η προστασία σε οίκους ανοχής & λέσχες. Η δίκη για την οποία δεν μιλά σχεδόν κανείς.

2️⃣ Στις 29 Σεπτεμβρίου συνεχίζεται η δίκη της #GreekMafia με 19 κατηγορούμενους.

🔎 Ανάμεσα σε αυτούς και δύο πρώην υψηλόβαθμα στελέχη της #ΕΛΑΣ που είχαν τον -άμεσο ή έμμεσο- έλεγχο νευραλγικών υπηρεσιών για την καταπολέμηση του οργανωμένου εγκλήματος.
3️⃣ Η δικογραφία της υπόθεσης βασίζεται σε πόρισμα της #ΕΥΠ.

Όμως, μέχρι τώρα δεν έχουν σταλεί στο δικαστήριο οι εκθέσεις απομαγνητοφώνησης των υποκλοπών, κάτι που μπορεί να οδηγήσει σε νέες καθυστερήσεις ή και απαλλαγή των κατηγορουμένων χωρίς ουσιαστική εξέταση των κατηγοριών.

Viceroy Research is short Truecaller. Our report is now live:

viceroyresearch.org/2022/09/28/tru…

Truecaller is a Swedish adware & spyware app which feeds a public phonebook aimed at preventing spam (not a joke).

$TRUE $TRUEB #truecaller #thread 1/ ImageImageImageImage
The EU’s GDPR &similar legislation across the globe, threatens Truecaller’s business, which we believe is on the brink of redundancy.

It now resorts to skirting regulations and/or avoiding taxes through uncreative loopholes which we believe will be inevitably cut-off. $TRUE 2/
HOW IT WORKS

Fundamentally, Truecaller builds a “phonebook” and refines its spam database by:
1. Gathering identities of users and their address books.
2. Processing user-submitted “spam” numbers.
3. Identifying numbers which have exhibited spam-like behavior

Good Morning. A follow-up #thread on the (admittedly) overwhelming response on my first one yesterday regarding the #NordstreamLeaks in the #BalticSea

#Nordstream1 #NordStream2 #Sabotage #seabed #Pipeline
It was suggested correctly, as by @AlexvB___, that there is also the possiblity to move *within* the pipelines. But how to do that? Let´s take a (bit technical) look 🔎:
The >1200km length (each!) of the pipelines have to be serviced and cleaned, too. For that, pipelines as #Nordstream use a special device, the Pipeline inspection Gauge - in German called #Molch

If you follow our account, you know that we get a lot of hate from TERFs & "Gender Criticals" for supporting LGBTQ+ folks.

Their harassment doesn't scare us & won't ever stop us from joining in solidarity with trans people — our fights are inseparably linked. #Thread.
The same Trump Republicans who are working so hard to ban abortion are doing all they can to make it impossible for trans people to live openly & safely. It all comes down to their disrespect for bodily autonomy.
Far-right extremists (who are natural allies of the TERF/GC movement) believe that THEY should have power over the lives of women, trans folks, nonbinary people — really anyone who isn't a cis white man.

Thread 1/3. Probably the most famous French monarch, Louis XIV left a deep mark on France and Europe. Over his 72-years reign, from 1643 to 1715, he accomplished many things. This is the first of three threads over 3 days. #Thread 🧵
Episode available on: lafayettepodcast.com/1969630/108864… Louis XIV of France
If you were to ask anyone on the street of Paris, or any other French city "who was the greatest French monarch?", I think the vast majority would answer Louis XIV. Let's find out why he let such a lasting impression.
Louis was born on September 5 1638. His father, Louis XIII and mother Anne d'Autriche had been married for over two decades when he came along. He was seen as a miracle and quickly was nicknamed "Dieudonné", given by God. Anne d’Autriche and Louis

Multimillionaire hedge funder Crispin Odey, who has donated £1.7m+ to the Tories, UKIP & pro-Brexit campaigns, has made another killing betting on Britain's economic meltdown, saying his bets against Govt bonds are “the gifts that keep on giving”.
theguardian.com/business/2022/…
Odey, who was a leading backer of Brexit, came to prominence during the 2008 financial crisis, when he made a fortune shorting banking shares.

And now Odey has made another killing by wagering against British government bonds, with his firm's main fund up 145% in 2022. Image
Odey is on the Sunday Times Rich List for his £825 million fortune, & he has personally managed some $4 billion in assets Odey Asset Management.

Back in 2007 Odey’s firm incubated Jacob Rees-Mogg’s just-launched Somerset Capital Management before it received regulatory approval. Image

Ces 50 dernières années, les populations de nombreux mammifères ont à nouveau augmenté en Europe :
+16000% pour le bison,
+6000% pour le phoque gris,
+44% pour l'ours brun,
+37% pour la baleine à bosse...

Voici pourquoi :
mini #thread ⤵️ Image
Regardons en arrière, sur le long terme.
La première disparition des grands mammifères est l'oeuvre de nos ancêtres, qui les chassaient pour leur viande.

Au quaternaire, les chasseurs-cueilleurs auraient causé la chute de 25% de leur population. Image
Puis, l'avènement de l'agriculture causa la perte de leur habitat.
Plus les surfaces cultivées augmentaient, plus la faune diminuait. Image

"A bonus cap interferes with the Single Market, both by reducing bank competition & competitiveness & by interfering directly with the free market in incomes" - Brextremist swivel-eyed free-market fundamentalist PATRICK MINFORD, who also favoured favoured the poll tax! ImageImage
Minford's dangerously irresponsible mantra of 'low taxes, free trade & deregulation' influenced Thatcherism.

His model of the economy is based on 'rational expectations' - similar to James McGill Buchanan's influential 'public choice' philosophy.

The 2008 financial crash proved beyond any doubt that the markets were NOT 'always right', & marked the end of the dominant consensus in favour of economic & financial liberalisation, but Minford STILL insists 'low taxes, free trade & deregulation' are best for the economy. 🤪 Image

#Faschismus ist für Viele Teil der Vergangenheit, eine überwundene Ideologie des ausgehenden 19. und der ersten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts. Gerade in Deutschland mangelt es an Differenzierung zum NS. Das ist Teil des Problems. Ein paar Gedanken als #Thread
Nazismus, so Strenhell, ist keine „bloße Variante des Faschismus […] seine Betonung des biologischen Determinismus“ gehe deutlich über ihn hinaus. Wenn dann, ist ersteres eine Verschärfung. Fokus liegt im Folgenden auf #Faschismus. ...
Mit Sternhell ist Faschismus als Ideologie zu verstehen, die nicht an historische Situation gebunden ist, sondern sich flexibel an Gegebenheiten und gesellschaftliche Rahmungen anpasst. Gemessen an ideologischen Vorgaben, waren auch hist. Faschismen nie vollkommen. ...

I interviewed Infosys co-founder Narayana Murthy for Outlook magazine in 2009, on the eve of the general elections. In the context of his recent statements about Manmohan Singh's stewardship of the economy ("stagnated") , it's interesting to revisit his comments. #Thread
In 2009, when I asked NRN about the significance of the approaching election, he said: "This election is very important because it is being held after a ten-year period of spectacular economic growth in the country."
Then Murthy went on to praise Manmohan Singh: "MMS has brought the need for inclusive growth to the front burner. In that sense, today, there is a much greater awareness of the fact that not everybody in the country has benefited from our extraordinary economic growth."

On @Satyamev1310 request, starting this #thread about my Kuldevi #Shantadurga from Kavalem, #Goa. This is my humble attempt to retell her story. Chukbhuli saathi kshamasva 🙏. There are two stories, starting with the first one below 1/n Image
Vishnu & Mahadev had a massive fight one day at Mount Gomanchala (aka Gomantaka/present-day Goa). Shiva was about to use the most potent weapon - the Pashupatastra - on Narayana. Sensing the danger to the Universe, Brahma prayed to Devi Parvati to intervene. 2/n
Devi Parvati took the form of Shantadurga or Shanteri & calmed down the 2 warring parties. The two "snakes" she holds in her hands signify Vishnu (right) & Shiva (left). So she literally & physically separates the two. 3/n

"If you want absolute obedience, you have to sever family ties. That's why state schools brainwash your children with values that you despise & then instruct your children to turn you in as a thought criminal if you object."

Summary of the 2017 research paper, 'News media literacy & conspiracy theory endorsement', which explores the extent to which understanding news-making processes mitigates against believing conspiracy theories.

journals.sagepub.com/doi/pdf/10.117…
Conspiracy theories are flourishing, spurring concerns about the role of misinformation in influencing public opinion & election outcomes.

Does news media literacy predict the likelihood of endorsing conspiracy theories? What is the impact of literacy on partisanship?
Basically, greater knowledge about the news media predicts a lower likelihood of conspiracy theory endorsement, even for conspiracy theories that aligned with the political ideology of participants in the survey.

Twenty years ago, a ship named the Joola capsized off the coast of the Gambia as it sailed from the south to the north of Senegal.

Nearly 1,900 lives were lost in the disaster, more than on the Titanic, but few outside Senegal know about this tragedy.

#THREAD 1/ | #Joola
A new BBC Africa documentary investigates what happened that day and why the survivors and the relatives of the victims, believe justice still has not been done.

2/ | #Joola
On September 26 2002, the Joola had only just returned to service after being out for engine repair for more than a year.

The boat had been manufactured in Germany and first delivered to the Senegalese government back in 1990.

20 theses on #Ukraine/#Russia: recap.

2 There can be neither negotiations (apart from one-off issues like prisoner exchanges) with Putin's regime, nor peace talks.
Any hint of this weakens us.

3 The discourse in favor of such discussions, such as "we will have to sit down at the negotiating table", is either a sign of ignorance of the danger of this regime, or a propaganda narrative.
It would lead to a betrayal of our commitments to Ukraine and put us in danger.
