Over the past few months, @SFLCin has received information that the mobile Internet is frequently suspended in various regions of Kashmir for nearly 10 hours every day. Here's a brief thread on the situation.

#KeepItOn #LetTheNetWork #InternetShutdowns
@SFLCin found that the areas facing such suspensions are Anchar, Eidgah, Qamarwari, Soura, MR Gung, Nowhatta, Safa Kadal, Bagyass of Srinagar district; Wanpoh of Kulgam district, Qaimoh and the Litter area in the Pulwama district of Kashmir.

#InternetShutdowns #KeepItOn
This trend has been going on since August 2021. Apart from a couple of news articles, there hasn’t been any official order published regarding this. @SFLCin filed an application under the RTI Act to obtain orders of shutdown in November 2021 but haven't received a reply so far.

"भगवान राम और माता सीता के संदेश और उनकी कृपा के साथ रामलला के मंदिर के भूमिपूजन का कार्यक्रम राष्ट्रीय एकता, बंधुत्व और सांस्कृतिक समागम का अवसर बने।" - Exact words of Priyanka ji, to which many claimed that now onwards there is no diff between Congress & BJP (1/N)
To my humble knowledge, these words translates to a prayer to the deity seeking unity & brotherhood, but then Hindi is not my 1st language, what would I know? Let's look at those whom the secular had voted so far instead of Cong & what their stand is (2/N)
Let's start with AAP, what can I say which has still not been said so far about the Sanghi credentials of Kejriwal, here just leaving it with the images & yes he had greeted in Twitter also, but guess that's fine, hey he isn't a Gandhi after all (3/N)

For those of you who don't understand why so many of us medicos are questioning the drug Itolizumab the company Biocon and Ms. Kiran Shaw let me explain.

Issue 1. This drug is approved for psoriasis in India.
It is STILL NOT approved in USA for the same.

Ironically she happily quotes USFDA protocols for restricted emergency approval when her drug has not been approved for the original use there 🤷‍♂️

Shouldn't that make you wonder
Issue 2. They claim this drug showed "encouraging results in covid19 patients"
The "test" involved 30 patients. The drug helped with some symptoms but no change in mortality (death due to disease) was seen in the calculations
Also too small sample

Shouldn't that make you wonder?

@narendramodi Ji, claims to be a crusader of women rights but in reality, Modi Ji is a misogynist claiming to be a women rights crusader, here are some statements bu him which show his true mindset -

#WomanKiBaat 1/n
1) In 2012, at an election rally, PM Modi remarked about Shashi Tharoor’s wife by saying, “Wah kya girlfriend hai. Have you ever seen a ₹50-crore girlfriend?”

2) In 2003, As CM he proposed farmers should give drip irrigation sets as dowry to their daughters.

#WomanKiBaat 2/n
3) “If he (farmer) sells mango, he gets a little money. If he makes pickles, he makes more money. And if that pickle is packed in a nice bottle, he gets much more. If he puts the bottle in the hands of a girl for advertisement, he will get still more money.“

I’ve taught oine courses for 10+ years. Want my hot take on why mandatory elearning for all students is a bad idea? No? I’ll give it to you anyway:
#threadalert #osstf #onted
1) It’s really easy for students to pretend their online course doesn’t exist. They don’t have to walk into a classroom every day and have attendance taken and look their teacher in the eye. So unless they’re disciplined, they put it off.
2) If they pretend it doesn’t exist for long enough, they end up with a huge backlog of work to complete, feel overwhelmed, and put if off some more because it causes them anxiety.

1/7 My next thread is mainly about, how to deal with CEOs while designing #InternalCommunications. How do you convince ‘the boss’ that he/she must step forward, meet internal staff regularly and establish personal relationships?

In my PR work my, I always start by establishing powerful relationships with top-dogs, reminding them that their communication quality influences their credibility. Employees perceive CEO communication as satisfactory if regarded highly.

Effective CEO Communication with staff – that is open, responsive, sincere and respectful can create a sense of empowerment at work. Employees fell appreciated. Tag any CEO you know

#ThreadAlert Entering electoral politics after a ~30 yr. expat professional career has been an incredible learning experience. Some day, I hope I'll find the time to write about it in detail. For now, I want to touch on two troubling aspects showing a decline in our Democracy 1/n
First, a statistic to explain the extent to which the role of the Legislature has been reduced. The Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly passed 16 Bills (new or amended laws) in the final hours, of the last day, of the month-long Demand-for-Grants session which finished July 20th 2/n
The total time allowed for discussion (on only 4 of 16 bills), was about 12 minutes! Also, 13 of the 16 Bills had been delivered to the Members/placed on the Table of the House only in the last 3 days of the session. 3 of them on the last day after we reached the Assembly! 3/n

#THREADALERT: I'm going to start a new thread here, we'll call it a Supervisor Greg Lazzaro highlight reel. Highlight may be an inappropriate term. I'm editorializing here, and no, I'm not sorry. I'll contribute to it throughout the afternoon as I recover old reporting.
Supervisor Lazzaro was recently NOT supported for another term by his own party. They didn't provide reasoning, but perhaps the next several tweets can help explain what this 'administration' has looked like.…
In November 2016, Supervisor Lazzaro asked three board members, whom he did not agree with on specific policy points to turn in their keys. He stripped them of their committee assignments until after the start of 2017. Here's that story:…
