#टोक्यो_ओलम्पिक_की_2 महान_घटनाएं

केनिया के सुप्रसिद्ध धावक अबेल मुताई आलंपिक प्रतियोगिता में अंतिम राउंड में दौडते वक्त अंतिम लाइन से कुछ मीटर ही दूर थे और उनके सभी प्रतिस्पर्धी पीछे थे।

अबेल ने स्वर्ण पदक लगभग जीत ही लिया था?
इतने में कुछ गलतफहमी के कारण वे अंतिम रेखा समझकर एक मिटर पहले ही रुक गए।

उनके पीछे आनेवाले #स्पेन के इव्हान_फर्नांडिस के ध्यान में आया कि अंतिम रेखा समझ नहीं आने की वजह से वह पहले ही रुक गए।
उसने चिल्लाकर अबेल को आगे जाने के लिए कहा लेकिन स्पेनिश नहीं समझने की वजह से वह नही हिला।

आखिर मे इव्हान ने उसे धकेल कर अंतिम रेखा तक पहूंचा दिया ।

इस कारण अबेल का प्रथम तथा इव्हान का दूसरा क्रमांक आया।

She was already the GOAT, so we need to invent a new term. I’m still trying to acquire the wisdom @Simone_Biles has at her age.

You can’t help anyone (friend, child, partner, country) without first taking care of yourself.

The Olympics is not war. #SimonBiles
You’re a legend for many reasons, @Simone_Biles.

The strength it takes for women (especially young, and especially from underrepresented and marginalized communities) to love and value ourselves enough to say “This is my limit”: radical & beautiful.

Definition of role-model.

THREAD 📌#Paralympics

So I just read this awful piece and was reminded that some #disabled folks are not interested in making the world more equitable for all of us. Roy Perkins has decided that Becca Meyers just isn't that #disabled. Wrong.
According to Perkins, who is a swimmer, not a doctor, and not blind nor Deaf, Meyers isn't THAT blind or THAT Deaf and thus doesn't need a personal care assistant like she has always had before. The IOC has restricted them due to COVID, which penalizes some disabled athletes.
Perkins' argument is an ableist one: if other #disabled people have suffered in silence before, why can't Meyers? And, Perkins asserts, others are more #disabled than Meyers. This is the kind of terrible #ableism that has restricted the lives of #disabled people for centuries.

I think there should be serious discussion in the US for a male president who out of fear of COVID will send HIS WIFE INSTEAD OF HIMSELF and that makes it OK. What does it say about the country? Is it OK because it is diplomatically OK, even during a global pandemic?
There is a historical precedent where President Obama sent The First Lady during the London Olympics. But that was during normal times. It was a diplomatic decision made during peace time. But today, we are in the midst of a global pandemic.…
Health experts around the world, including government advisors are warning about #Tokyo2020 becoming a possible place for mixing of variants & super-spreader event. And the possibility is getting REAL by the day. I wonder if the Americans are caught up.

Compilation of Parliamentary Financial Links to Private #Healthcare
This represents the latest list of recent or present financial links between #parliamentarians and #individuals or #companies involved in private healthcare.
up-to-date as of March 2nd 2014. It has increased !
#MPs and #Lords are able to vote on legislation, even when they have a direct #financial interest.
This happened with the Health and Social Care Act, which saw the #NHS being forced into a world of an external market.
The legislation was written for industry, by industry and is part of the overall plan for it's demise and the eventual takeover by #private health insurance companies.

The 121-day Tokyo Olympics relay kicked off on Mach 25 without spectators. The Tokyo Olympics, which were originally scheduled for July 2020, were delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The relay will end on July 23, 2021, with the Olympic Games opening ceremony in Tokyo.
The rose-gold, cherry blossom-shaped Olympic torch was lit at the J-Village sports complex in Fukushima, which also served as a base for operations responding to the 2011 disaster. Fukushima was one of the worst-affected areas by the 2011 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster
The nationwide relay will be different from the previous editions as there will be no spectators amid COVID concerns.

According to the ministry, the three warships did not enter Japanese territorial waters. Renhai is one of China's most powerful destroyer classes. According to the ministry's Joint Staff,
three Chinese warships were discovered traveling northeast at a point about 250 kilometers southwest of Tsushima around 11 a.m. Thursday by a P-1 patrol aircraft of the Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force and two MSDF ships (2 a.m. GMT).
