Very few characters have left quite as large a crater in the story of humanity as Vladimir Ilyich Lenin. The revolution that he spearheaded in early 1900s would set the whole world onto a different course after his death, the reverberations of which are still being felt today.
Opinions surrounding the man couldn't be more divided.

A popular opinion amongst those with more left-wing inclinations is that Lenin was a great idealist whose dream of a communist utopia became corrupted only after he died, under the hands of Joseph Stalin.

#History provides us with the enormous opportunity as both individuals and society to learn and adapt. Take the presidency of Jimmy Carter, who was tasked at reviving a morally corrupt federal government, while tackling stagflation & global multiple conflicts. 1/4 #ClimateChange
From a new #biography on the 39th president: "Carter proposed investing in clean energy, imagining a U.S. independent of Arab oil. His constituents just wanted to know when the pumps would start flowing again." 2/4 #ClimateChange #BookReview ajc.com/life/jimmy-car…
Instead of adapting to new economic conditions, placing #sustainability at the forefront, America chose the politically more digestible Republican argument. Today, we face a similar choice that is geometrically more consequential. 3/4 #Election2020 #ClimateChange

#RaniRudramaDevi was a monarch of the Kakatiya dynasty in the Deccan Plateau from 1263 until her death. She probably began her rule of the Kakatiya kingdom jointly with her father, Ganapatideva as his co-regent, from 1261-62.

#RaniRudramaDevi chose to recruit as warriors many people who were not aristocratic, granting them rights over land tax revenue in return for their support. This was a significant change which was also followed by later Vijayanagara Empire.

The end of another semester of engaging students with @WikiEducation at @MissouriSandT @sandtcasb in #HistSCI means another tweet thread about this super fun project.
49 students, 32 articles, 40K words added, +285K views so far. I love their work! Take a look!
I'm going to group them. First group-- #WomenInSTEM #WomeninHistory
Students found that, uh oh, it's HARD to find reliable sources on women in science! This didn't stop them, though. They pushed through and learned some new research skills.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Annie_S._… is 1 product.
Tycho's sister, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sophia_Br… was another article that needed work. The women who worked on this one had to find all sources on Tycho then sift through for the 2-3 pages about Sophia. Thank goodness for good #librarians at S&T who were patient and helpful!
