Why being a raiders fan is not easy....
(A Thread) : Image
I dread this tweet right here...
2001 AFCCG the fucking tuck rule. Nothing else needs to be said. Image
(02-03) - HC Bill Callahan changes the game plan the day before the super bowl and sabotages the raiders. We would lose 48-21 to Jon Gruden’s buccaneers. Image

Protest for #Navalny in #Siberia. Attempted poisoning of #Navalny augments anger over the jailing of a popular local governor on trumped up charges. Will the Siberia Navalny protests spread to #Moscow, or is fear of death already the object lesson? #KGB #Putin #NATO #Belarus
1) Coverage of the protests by #Belarus's largest TV station. As U can see, #Lukashenko has lost control of at least part of the media & no one seems to be stopping them. Earlier in the week it was reported that some #Belarus military units were also in the protest. #Putin #NATO
2) Meanwhile, #Lukashenko announced that #NATO is marshalling forces for an attack & has ordered most of his forces to his western border. This conveniently gets his troops out of harm's way if #Putin invades from east to stop #Lukashenko's collapse. NATO denies intent to invade.

#My_Twitter_Rule 20/1
Our youth in a rush to create following on digital platforms. It is good start, but do they know what next. Having big following is just tool, unless one knew what to do with it, interest will die down after a while. Please read & learn who we (Muslims) are?
#My_Twitter_Rule 20/2
But read what? How to build #knowledge. #Information & Knowledge are two different things. Use Authentic sources, Introspection, Deliberation & Exchanges brings #Wisdom to the discourse.
Starting point is always #Quran! Read once translation & commentary....
#My_Twitter_Rule 20/3
Quran is a biggest gift of Allah, a guide, a constitution & a Hidaya. THAWAB is not its primary purpose!
Prophet SAW biography. He is a leader, head of state, a commander, peace maker, Mercy to mankind, role model (husband, father neighbor an orphan himself)

1] Going through a presser by #Mwonzora yesterday, can't help but laugh at how he has become a #pathological liar.

Infact, its clear that besides getting security, legal & material support from #ZanuPF, they are equally giving him free lessons on #propaganda.

It's a shame Image
2] #Mwonzora unashamedly claims there was a "peaceful & smooth handover & take over" .

He wants you to believe that the then occupants, i.e. #MDC-A officials "peaceful" handed over the HQ to MDC-T.

& then probably regained their consciousness & returned to reclaim it at night? Image
3] #Mwonzora falsely claims that they had nothing to do with the presence of security forces at MRT House.

Bizzarely, #Komichi claims the exact opposite, arguing that they invited them against marauding MDC-A who had petrol bombs.

He clearly says they actually invited them. Image

The Empirization of China

The #Chinese want to be an #Empire and that too in a hurry. But many perished in this quest. #GreatBritain is no more a empire. #USA is also facing heat in #multipolar world in #PostColdWar era.
@narendramodi @MEAIndia
1. With cunning and ruthlessness #China was well on track. It might have become a #GlobalEmpire within another 20 to 30 years. But its own shrowdy , anti democratic and #AntiHuman policies leading to its own #disaster.
2.However in their desperation and over eagerness, China it seems has overplayed its hand on many fronts. Now, by triggering, concealing and manipulating a #CoronaPandemic, China has not only made its dream of empire untenable, it will probably destroy China.

So, what happened last night?
“Joseph R. Biden Jr. won in states where he didn’t campaign. He won in states where he didn’t have offices. He won in states where he was overwhelmingly outspent... He won in states where rivals had a better organization.” 1/
nytimes.com/interactive/20…
My first thought was: How can America choose a man who didn’t really even campaign and arguably lost every debate—even graded on a curve?
My first response was: This shows how profoundly patriarchal we are as a nation. And I still believe this. 2/

#SuperTuesday
But, I don’t think Biden’s wave was fundamentally abt patriarchy. Leading Black womxn across the US threw their weight behind #ElizabethWarrenforPresident. I was one of them. Yet, Biden won overwhelming support frm Southern Black women—who tend to be matriarchal. 3/ #imlistening

1/ Look what arrived by mail today. Watch for a ritual burning at the end of this thread.

A thread tweeting quotes from "The Power of a Whisper" (TPOAW), by unrepentant sexual predator, bully, and con-man Bill Hybels, who is still being protected by @GLNsummit & @WillowCreekCC
@GLNsummit @WillowCreekCC 2/ Dedication Page: "To @DickDeVos & Betsy, & Ron & Sharon VanderPol--Only on the other side will the four of you know how much your friendship & support have meant to the Hybels family & to the global Willow family"

~Bill Hybels, "The Power of a Whisper", 2010
3/ I note that @glnsummit board chairman billionaire Dick Devos, to whom Bill dedicated this book, has overseen Global Leadership Network's ongoing cover-up of Bill Hybels' sexual crimes since 2014.

Saya hanya bertanya “ Apa Kesalahan yang dibuat oleh Para Mahasiswa sehingga Aparat melakukan tindakan Penganiayaan terhadap mereka “ Tengkorak Retak, Tulang Patah, Hidung Berdarah “ merupakan tindakan Terkutuk dan Biadab @as_boediono #hening
Mahasiswa menyuarakan Kegelisahan karena Keadaan ( bukan karena ajakan ) mereka Gelisah jika Negara ini Hancur maka mereka tidak akan dapat menyelesaikan Kuliahnya karena Orang Tuanya terPHK akibat Kondisi Ekonomi yang tidak lagi menjanjikan Masa Depan @as_boediono #hening

[Day4: Strengths & Limits of #SciComm forms, media, & spaces]
It's theory vs practice day!

There are loads of resources out there for #BestPractices. Today, let's discuss the strengths & limitations YOU've found in trying #STEM #storytelling, #comedy, #SciArt, #digital, & more!
I'll start w/ my favorite resources: @edbeltane & @OliverEscobar's "Public Dialogue & Delibration" & #WendyFaulkner's "Dialogue in #PublicEngagement" handbooks.

How do participant #communication styles impede/help your purpose, eg. #dialogue vs #debate?
beltanenetwork.org/DialogueTheory…
These have been crucial in my understanding of #experiencedesign when creating events or experiences for diverse #scicomm audiences & participants.

There's a purpose for panels and debates. But also a reason why they fail in "changing minds" or creating power-balanced convos.

#OSHO

#Meditation happens beyond #mind. It involves watching #mind. When the real YOU, the watcher, becomes stronger the mind becomes the #servant.

No #discipline, #mantra or #scientific instrument can lead to meditation. No technique can go beyond mind.
The basis of all misunderstanding in a scientific circle is: when the being of a person is in a state of meditation, it creates certain waves in the mind. These waves can be wavelength from the outside by #technical means. But those waves will not create #meditation
You may go on practising with #scientific instruments for years; it will not change your #character, it will not change your #morality, it will not change your #individuality. You will remain the same.

I read about some interesting #Corruption indicators and found them #TooGoodNotToShare ..

Surely worth a read and a self examination..

1 If you usually put more sugar in your tea when in a hotel than you do at home, You are likely to be corrupt..
2 If you use more tissue in a public washroom than you do at home, you are a potential thief if given an opportunity.

3 If you serve yourself more food that you can't finish just because someone else is footing the bill, you are greedy.
4 If u usually jump queues, you will potentially abuse office, if given a powerful position

5 If you’re more concerned about knowing someone's surname & not first name,you're likely to be a tribal bigot.Its even worse when someone tells you their name &u ask,WHICH TRIBE IS THAT?
