The @BritishArmy recently selected its next batch of RSMs.

Here’s a thread about the most inspirational RSM that ever lived.

He fought in N Africa, dropped at Arnhem, saved countless lives in a POW camp, and became the first Academy Sgt Maj at @RMASandhurst.

RSM JC Lord, a🧵
Fighting with @3PARA in Tunisia he showed just how rigid he was in setting his standards. And in keeping a cool head:
He also showed a leader needs a sense of humour and compassion.

Ray Sheriff, of 3 PARA, was wounded in the chest in North Africa. He was staggering back to find the medics when he came across RSM Lord:

Day 2. Still pre-conference. I must confess that while taking notes today, I sincerely wondered to myself: how will I condense this much information in a way that its essence is not lost? So much was said; so much needs to be done. Oya grab your seat. @LagosStudies #lsa2019
The first panel was the Gender and Academy II. Panelists were Yetunde Zaid, Lynn Schler, Bamidele Wale-Oshinowo, Oyeronke Oyewunmi, Mojubaolu Olufunke Okome (@mojubaolu) and Taibat Lawanson (@TaibatLawanson) The first question shows that mentorship comes in various forms.
Who was your first mentor?:

"My first mentor was my Ph.D. supervisor. He was good @ treating students equally&that gave everyone a sense of confidence when starting out with their career. It distilled any competition that we might have&developed a sense of community.” Schler

Key point made by @wbeke from @cdenv in his answer to #Orban's apology letter: beyond apologies, the problem is about respecting fundamental #values such as #Freedom of the #press, separation of powers and #solidarity. Still no place for #Fidesz in @EPP. standaard.be/cnt/dmf2019031…
.@ManfredWeber twisting Orban's hand to keep @CEUhungary is great but it addresses just a part of Orban's war against #knowledge & #CriticalThinking. How about #media pluralism, #school and #HigherEducation, #cultural institutions, #NGOs and now the #Academy of Science (#MTA)?
While the @EPP is deciding whether its future will be defined by values or interests, we at @momentumhu consider it our mission to stand up for #Knowledge & #CriticalThinking + defend and build our own #future toward a truly #European #Hungary . Orban, #YouWontStealOurFuture!
