Spectacle Monkey's population is increasing in Tripura.

A thread. Image
1. It is also known as dusky leaf monkey, spectacled langur.

3. It is a species of primate in the family #Cercopithecidae.

Some misinterpretation of our #Bangladesh Mask RCT by those who don’t read research, which I’ll ignore, but also some parochial/racist reactions, which I must respond to…
1."Americans experimenting on Bangladeshis to inform Americans”. Sorry, not all work is done to service Westerners. I [co-lead (clearly signaled as last) author], am Bangladeshi. We conducted study to primarily benefit LMICs. Study sites included districts where my family resides
We did NOT withhold masks from control group for research. Even while data collection was being completed, we personally secured donations of 100 million+ masks to distribute for free in 🇧🇩🇮🇳🇵🇰🇳🇵because the research showed positive effects.

युद्ध चाहे हजार साल पहले बीता हो, या आज।औरतें हरदम जीत की ट्रॉफी या हार की याद रहीं

वियतनाम युद्ध में #American सैनिकों ने
- हजारों कम उम्र लड़कियों को हॉर्मोन्स के इंजेक्शन दिए गए ताकि उनका भरा-भरा शरीर सैनिकों को 'एट होम' महसूस कराए
- बाद में 50 हज़ार बच्चे ‘रेप’ से पैदा हुए
#German पुरुष का गर्व तोड़ने के लिए उनकी महिलाओं का बलात्कार

दूसरे विश्व युद्ध के दौरान सोवियत(रूस) की सेना ने घरों से खींच-खींचकर जर्मन औरतें-बच्चियां का गैंगरेप किया। सबका एक ही मकसद था- जर्मन गर्व को तोड़ देना। इस दौरान सेना का सबसे मजबूत पुरुष ‘रेप’ के लिए जोश दिला रहा होता।
1919 के #Ireland वॉर में सैनिकों दुश्मन औरत के बाल छील देते। सिर ढंकने की मनाही थी। सिर मुंडाए चलती औरत गुलामी का इश्तेहार होती। राह चलते कितनी ही बार उसके शरीर को दबोचा जाता।
- पुरुष लेबर कैंपों में थे और छोटे बच्चे घर पर इंतजार करते हुए- उन मां और दीदी का जो कभी लौट नहीं सकीं।

Let's have a thread on rocket artillery.


The Good News: Everybody likes them!!!

The Bad News: The US military and major western powers can't compete 😒

The current trend among militaries who are supplied by national "defense" industries with rocket artillery is to go bigger...and bigger.

Don't look at #NorthKorea

How about #India ?

The pay off for having the manufacturing small, medium, and large caliber munitions is one of the most rewarding for countries obsessed with their national security.

If you can build small rockets, you can build large ones,and then develop an independent spacw program!!!

1/X - So #Pakistan is under review for "downgrade" to Frontier index. Personally I think it would be a good move. At 2bps of MSCI EM it will continue to be ignored. A few observations on MSCI Frontier Index and its use:
#EmergingMarkets #FrontierMarkets
2/X - There is a structural flaw in the algorithm deciding country weights. As opposed to MSCI EM where 50% free float is required, in FM index a mere 7,5% free-float is required. Not a brilliant idea as it gives a higher weight to "zombie markets" with zero liquidity.
3/X - It is ridiculous that #Bangladesh with >150 musd a day has 1/3 of the weight of #Kenya with 6 musd.

Remembering #ChukNagarMassacre of 1971.
50 years ago this week, about 10,000 #Bengalis, mostly #Hindus, fleeing the #Pakistanis & their #Islamist collaborators, were herded into Chuknagar & 2 surrounding villages of Khulna #Bangladesh by the #PakistanArmy. Then murdered en-masse.
Sundari was a 3 month old infant found between the 10,000 dead bodies in the #Chuknagar killing field, crying and trying to suckle on her dead mother’s breast. She is the only person who survived the #PakistanArmy firing, and was later adopted and raised by a local Hindu couple.
In this 50th year of the #BangladeshGenocide, it is important that we officially honor the victims and prosecute the hundreds of #Pakistani war criminals who never faced justice for 5 decades and travel freely around the world.

People along the west coast of India are slowly picking up pieces of their lives scattered & shattered by #CycloneTaukte.
Exactly a year ago, on May 20, #CycloneAmphan had hit the Sundarbans. People are still displaced.

@GaonConnectionE's ground report…
Sabita Rani’s last memory of her home was the clock on the wall which told her it was 6 pm. It was on the evening of May 20, 2020, that her home in Hajatkhali village was swept away in the fury of #CycloneAmphan. A year on, she is still displaced.

Khulna, Satkhira & Bagerhat dists on the southwest coast of Bangladesh were the hardest hit by #Cyclone Amphan. About 500,000 people were affected. There are lingering signs of devastation. Villages lie in ruins. Many continue to live on embankments.

Useful tip for researchers - include an #EasyRead summary to make your research more accessible for people with learning disabilities. You can also re-use the text to summarise your research on twitter. Thread with an e.g. 👇#AcademicTwitter #AcademicChatter
Recent report written with @B_Rohwerder & others on the impact of #COVID19 on people with disabilities in #Nepal and #Bangladesh 🇧🇩🇳🇵♿️…

I think #BrightWing shows the desperation of #PK. I think PK isn’t happy with a client who doesn’t listen to him. He is a marketer but has a rotten product at hand. He wanted to turn #MamataBanerjee to victim, Mamata decided to play Gangstah again.
So off goes the plaster and out comes the gloves as #MamataBanerjee urges the cadre to be aggressive and violent even against the Central Forces. The strategist seems to have been told to shut up and follow the election #WestBengal way. The goons, gangs and violence.
A strategist hanging out with so called neutral journalist so keen to ensure #MamataBanerjee wins #WestBengalPolls for more than an hour, on a day before polls. Is he hinting out that the candidate has slipped out of his hands when he hints attack on CAPF in Bengal?

A #thread on our recent paper in @PLOSNTDs examining ecological #evidence-base for #DiseaseControl management practices for #KyasanurForestDisease #AcademicTwitter #Scicomm #OneHealth; paper led by @SarahBurthe from @MonkeyFever_ consortium
#Diseasecontrol strategies originate through endorsements by Governments/academia/authorities; they're often not field-tested robustly; even when they are, evidence is limited to one sector (cf. #OneHealth #Intersectoral approaches);
#publichealth approaches ought to be contextual & their effectiveness ought to be evaluated, yet strategies for disease control often spread through word of mouth and are sometimes untested;

The #1971IndoPakWar was the outcome of continuous atrocities & genocide by #Pakistan on the people of #Bangladesh. The genocide of 25 Mar 71, led to the birth of Mukti Bahini, which played a stellar role in the liberation of #Bangladesh. (1/n)

#Pakistan opted for war with #India instead of stopping genocide in #Bangladesh. On 3 Dec 1971 at 4.45 PM #Pakistan initiated the war with pre-emptive strikes at 12 #Indian airfields. (2/n)
As the basic strategy of #Pak was to launch a powerful attack in the West, a large portion of her Armed Forces was deployed there. These included two Armoured Divisions, ten Infantry Divisions, two Armoured Brigades and seven POK Brigades. (3/n)

People with disabilities are often excluded from #DevelopmentResearch. People with complex/multiple impairments such as #DeafBlindness are often excluded even from development research that focuses on disability. We wanted to challenge that & work with the most marginalised.

We undertook narrative interviews in #Nepal & #Bangladesh. 🇳🇵🇧🇩 We found that the pandemic and responses have had devastating and life-changing detrimental effects on people with disabilities from the most marginalised groups.

1) The leading doctors of #COVID19 who's cheap life saving protocols have been ignored/dismissed.

'It's astonishing we've had so much pushback. People just don't believe us. People think it's dangerous. It's perplexing as our mortality data proves that it works' #DrPaulMarik
2) "These are very inexpensive drugs, and there are executives flying in their Lear jets who don't like this. Because it's threatening to making money" (#DrPaulMarik MATH+ & iMask Protocols)
3) "When you early adopt something, especially from a group of your peers there is a lot of professional jealousy. It's like the politics that you see everyday. You are seeing same thing in medical field. For proof they want a big trial" (Dr Joe Varon MATH+ & IMASK Protocol)
