Why was #ShahFaesal fleeing to #Turkey?

For Jamat-e-Liberal folks/peacefuls, Faesal is a legend

First #Kashmiri IAS topper & an #Harvard alumni

He quit everything to bring peace, prosperity & dev to #Kashmir by starting a political party!
Shah Faesal went to attend Mason program in Harvard Kennedy School (HKS)

Prestigious program attended by many politicians from around the world

Half of class becomes PMs, Prez, ministers after they go bk

US senators come there

Top NGOs, UN positions are given to HKS fellows
Why govt sponsored him to Harvard if they knew his allegiance and spent 1crore+?

Claimed he got Fullbright scholarship, but that only pays for travel/boarding

Tuition fees of $80000 is very expensive & fully-paid leave from job with no agreement to work after coming back

Stop spreading lies: The #WhatsApp E2E encryption is enable for everyone whatever your ROM or if your device is rooted or not.

The wording here is weird but technical I guarantee that E2E encryption is enable for everyone
ffs, I know we are in 2019 but before saying something you should verify your claims.

For now:
- There is no backdoor in WhatsApp
- E2E encryption is enable for everyone

Always check your claims folks!

*An Empty Boat* ⛵ A monk decides to meditate alone, away from his monastery. He takes his boat out to the middle of the lake, moors it there, closes his eyes and begins his meditation.
After a few hours of undisturbed silence, he suddenly feels the bump of another boat colliding with his own. With his eyes still closed, he senses his anger rising, and by the time he opens his eyes, he is ready to scream at the boatman who dared disturb his meditation.
But when he opens his eyes, he sees it’s an empty boat that had probably got untethered & floated to the middle of the lake. At that moment, monk achieves self-realization, understands that the anger is within him; it merely needs the bump of an external object to provoke it out.

#Fear is the #WeaponOfTyranny.
When slave owners in America wanted to control any desire their black slaves might have to escape or rebel they did not need to break every slave's legs. That would have been to lose an asset. They #lynched the odd slave to send a chilling message.
When the Taliban in #Afghanistan wanted girls out of school, and women in #burqa, they did not beat up or terrorise all women. They merely brutalised - in public - the odd woman to send a chilling message.
When #India's #RightWing fascists wanted to keep the minorities (muslims, dalits, women) in their place in the heirarchy they merely had to send out the #LynchMobs on the odd occasion, video the atrocity and share it on #WhatsApp to send a chilling message

There was this tweet from @GreatGameIndia about tests done on samples of table and cooking salt from 2 Indian companies / brands - Tata Salt and Sambhar Salt. Apparently they contained 'high' levels of Potassium Ferrocyanide. (#OMG, ferrocyanide? why arent we all dying?!!?)
The report in GGINews, an online newspaper, quoted a certain Shiv Shankar Gupta, Chairman of Godhum Grains & Farms Products, that the test by America West Analytical Laboratories (AWAL) showed 4.71 mg/kg in Sambhar Salt and 1.85 mg/kg in Tata's product.
Apparently the story was picked up by IANS and carried by several outlets. I saw it retweeted by @PragyaTiwari I had previously received a #WhatsApp forward in family group rife with fake news.
I smelled something fake about it and decided to look into it.

Un po' di info interessanti su #Libra, la nuova criptovaluta di #Facebook

Prima cosa da sapere: è una cosa ENORME, e tra un anno la userà chiunque in occidente. C'è dentro Mastercard e VISA, ma pure Uber, PayPal, Spotify, eBay. C'è di mezzo pure Coinbase, società finanziaria che finora era stata famosa soprattuto perché vendeva #Bitcoin facilmente.
Il video con cui viene presentata #Libra è particolarmente interessante per la narrazione: viene presentata come la *valuta globale*, che permetterà di superare i limiti delle attuali monete e permettere a tutti (a prescindere dal luogo) di partecipare al mercato globale.

• (Whatsapp-)Chats sollen lesbar werden.
• Regulierung der #Meinungsfreiheit
• Nun auch Smart Home Auswertung.
Ich meine, da muss man nicht mal mehr Wanzen im Haus versteckenverstecken.
Dafür hat man ja jetzt #Alexa.

Jetzt noch so ein Ding im Auto und wan weiß wann wer wo ist.
Die Gewohnheiten oder wofür man sich interessiert kann man auch aufgrund dieser Daten ganz einfach ermitteln.
Mit wem ich wann und wo geschrieben habe ist auch ganz einfach herauszufinden wenn #Whatsapp & Co. ihre Daten lesbar an Behörden übergeben müssen.

Und meine Möglichkeit mich anonym zu informieren oder mich auszutauschen ist mir der #Klarnamenspflicht vorbei.

Depois dessa última treta do WhatsApp - exame.abril.com.br/tecnologia/e-a… - não convém adiar mais a thread sobre Facebook/Instagram/WhatsApp, dados, publicidade e geopolítica. Segue...
Facebook/Instagram/WhatsApp são desenvolvidos para aprender com nosso comportamento. Todo engajamento é um dado. Por ex., as variações de reações no face (like, <3, tristeza, raiva, surpresa) não são acessórios fofinhos. É um recurso pra mapeamento de preferências de conteúdo.
Toda essa programação tem como objetivo a publicidade direcionada, que é basicamente nos mostrar os conteúdos que demonstramos interesse em ver.

Publicidade direcionada leva em conta hábitos dos usuários da web: bit.ly/2LEtpRj

Se hizo viral en #RRSS (como si fuera del fin de semana) un video de @jguaido que en realidad es de 2015. Probable objetivo: mostrar al Presidente (e) 🇻🇪 como OTRO político poco sensible, que baila mientras el país está en emergencia humanitaria

Otro ejemplo reciente de #FakeNews 👉🏻 el "científico venezolano" que formó parte del equipo que fotografió el #AgujeroNegro #BlackHole

¿Coger el teléfono de móvil de alguien sin su consentimiento para leer sus conversaciones de #whatsapp constituye un delito?👇👇
Establece la STS Sala Segunda de 21 de junio de 2016 que tal conducta integra el tipo del art 197.1 CP argumentando que la versatilidad tecnológica...
...que han alcanzado los teléfonos móviles los convierte en herramientas indispensables en la vida cotidiana con funciones múltiples, tanto de almacenamiento de datos como de comunicación con terceros, susceptibles de afectar no sólo al secreto a las comunicaciones...
...sino también a los derechos al honor, a la intimidad personal y a la propia imagen, e incluso a la protección de datos personales, lo que implica que el parámetro de control a proyectar sobre la conducta de acceso a dicho instrumento deba ser especialmente riguroso.

#Hypocrisy #Liberal #WhatsApp

Asksd my friend's son what he wanted to be when he grows up. He said he wanted to be PM some day.

Both of his parents, liberal leftists, were standing there, so I asked him, 'If you were Prime Minister, what would be the first thing you would do?'
He replied, 'I'd give money for food and houses to all the poor.'

Parents beamed with pride

'Wow, what a worthy goal’

I told him. 'But you don't have to wait until you're PM to give money to the poor

‘Come over mow the lawn, pull weeds & sweep my yard & I'll pay you Rs.500
Then I'll take you over to the grocery store where that homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the same 500 rupee note for food and other stuff.'

He thought that over for a few seconds, then he looked me straight in the eyes and asked,

Sobre la sanción de #OFAC contra Lacava solo diré 2 cosas: las puertas se cerraron totalmente para el régimen. El único negociante que todavía respiraba en suelo americano cada tanto al mes era Lacava a través de Bob Corker y Thomas Shannon.
Desde el mismo #8Feb cuando Pelosi emitió su comunicado alineándose con el presidente Trump el propio "drácula" recogió velas, sabía que este momento llegaría. No es de extrañar que al cerrar filas dems y republicanos y aplaudir de pie JUNTOS el dia del Discurso de la Unión
Donde el Presidente Trump se dedicó hablar y buscar consenso al caso Venezuela, los días y horas estarían contados para todos aquellos que tenían algún pequeño espacio de diálogo con EEUU. Ya las vías diplomáticas han sido agotadas guste o no sólo queda "the patriot law"

1/ Looking at the press, I strongly believe that if @Facebook wants its envisioned end-to-end unification of the #Messenger, #WhatsApp and #Instagram platforms to work, that it needs to dump #Onavo and kick it to the kerb.
2/ That said: I believe there's nuance — if competent people want to sign up for a service, even get paid for it, and it involves them being watched like lab rats and they are informed of this, then fine, go for it, knock yourselves out, enjoy the free service or the income.
3/ Mentally I put this sort of observation/monitoring stuff in much the same space as "Nielsen", and the primary disgust that people exhibit here is because "it's Facebook" — feel free to change my mind?

Airline passengers with little babies are nothing compared to newly-weds. I had them next to me and she is spooned into him with no daylight between them and I get a filthy look being the intruder and she is wearing those red and white bangles up to her elbows like a
badge of honour and he is telling her that the plane flies because when the engines start the exhaust pushes the plane faster and faster and then like a pebble from a catapult it shoots upwards. Never heard such baloney in my life and she has that look of liquid admiration like
he had just discovered a fourth law for Newton and if the Wright brothers had heard this they would have given up flying and taken up paddle boating instead.
As we take off she combs his hair with her henna designed fingers and he tap taps her on the nose as we ‘catapult’ into
