I agree 💯 with @mikko here.


--he might be missing the Pentagon's perspective. So, let me fill y'all in.

Tanks, missiles, etc. are #classic: they deploy everywhere to strike anything. Need to put a hole in something? Tank. Obliterate? Missile. Crater? Bomb…
…but a cyber weapon is #unique as @mikko said. It deploys against a particular version(s) of Windows, or Linux, or even #antivirus software.

At this point you'd be totally correct to say "Rob, you can't drop a 30lb incendiary bomb to take out an underground bunker!" But the… Image
…issue here is "classic."

In WWII, we dropped 30lb incendiary bombs across Germany to demoralize and kill their civilian populations.

Now, in #cyber, you can issue an update, change a setting, even retreat from the Internet. In the real world, though…

The punk says "Ive gotta know"... Hahaha.. Then Clint Eastwood shoots a blank at him.. laughs a wicked laugh and walks away... #Classic #DirtyHarry... (In later sequels.. that punk becomes his friend)...

This week I’ve been in an employment tribunal where a Muslim academic at @UniversityLeeds is bringing multiple claims of race and religious discrimination against the University. It has been astounding so far hearing the processes of exclusion, racial governance & undermining 🧵
Two of the claimants initial claims that were dropped due to being out of time included that the Claimant’s module “Global Jihad” was referred to the PREVENT programme because he and his Muslim colleagues were not trusted to report their students for risk of radicalisation
Interestingly the academics who curated the course had taught the “Global Jihad” module for 5 yrs to the government’s OWN Ministry of Defence… clearly influenced by self-surveillance & pressure to prove themselves against racialisation…but makes the PREVENT referral even wilder

Decide beforehand if you want to play safe or adventurously. For those who like to play the odds there is the #classic bet which pays off 35-1 if you can guess the next number. The split bet is when you select 2 numbers so your #rewards are less,… only 17-1 if you can guess the correct number. For those who like to play it cautiously there are the outside bets where you bet the ball will land on red or black or odd verses even and in accordance the payoff is 1-1. Lower risk so lower rewards. You need to be able to walk away, in other words know when it is time to quit. For instance if you have been loosing consistently, for the last ten minutes, then it is time to take a breath of air and leave the table.

1/🧵🎥 MAJOR TIPS about #Liver Disease
Why do we ask pts to “hold up traffic”? When people get severe liver disease, “asterixis” is a finding on exam we often see.

What does it mean?
#MedTwitter #NurseTwitter #TipsforNewDocs #Addiction
2/ Asterixis indicates that toxins like ammonia have built up in the body because the scarred liver no longer filters them out. The brain cells no long function normally (#Delirium or Hepatic #Encephalopathy) & can no longer control muscle movements like posture!
3/ These same toxin cause vessels to dilate and develop problems with blood flow in the skin and lungs. A skin finding is called “spiders.” They look like a multi-legged spider, right? It’s a tip-off.

1/365 - Starting this thread with one of the first Motorcycles to be built in India. The @royalenfield #Bullet350. A Motorcycle which was initially built for the Indian Army but with time found patronage amongst varying genre of people achieving a cult status over the decades. ImageImageImageImage
2/365 - After selling imported Vespas for a while, Bajaj Auto started manufacturing the #Bajaj150 under license in 1959. This was one of the first Scooters in India and certainly changed the 2-Wheeler scene as it was initially available at a significant premium in the market. ImageImageImageImage
3/365 Automobile Products of India (API) was the 1st Scooter maker in India and manufactured the #Lambretta Li 150 Series 2 under license from Innocenti at Bombay in the 1960's. This scooter was very popular and made appearances in a few famous Bollywood movies too. #BikerLife ImageImageImageImage

Hi #twitterstorians! This is the second installment on #Srinivas. Today we focus on his concept of #sanskritization
which was key in the development of Indian #anthropology and #sociology.This is part of our history of concepts. @UoMhistdept @LeedsUniHistory @CSMCH_Edin #AHRC
#Srinivas coined the term #sanskritization in the late 1940s and early 1950s while researching the Coorgs of South India. #Sankritization was used as a way to explain how certain groups like the Lingayats of Karnataka had move up in a caste structure that was supposed to be fixed Image
The main idea behind #sanskritization is that lower castes groups imitate and adopt Sanskritic culture and values. Along with economic and political power, eventually, #sanskritization would translate into ritual power too. This would make lower caste groups to move up socially

In a series of tweets, will share some rare clippings of #JagjitSingh Sb. in a private mehfil in 1976. Originally recorded on audiotapes, arbitrary ripping and multiple conversions thereafter, has made the quality not very fine; use of headphone advisable.
Apologies, couldn't post them here due to some constraint. It's available for a limited time; hear, love, listen as early as possible. A humble request, listen to them completely, for there are some extempore comments you would love to listen.

PS: Some of them contains humour.
Starting with some Punjabi humour in #JagjitSingh’s style.
Enjoy! 😊

A special symposium #EvoDevo19 honored Dr. Günter Wagner for his leadership & service to our profession, especially as Journal of Experimental Zoology editor-in-chief . To show our appreciate of his contributions to #evodevo, here are some books & papers we like!
Landmark paper with Lee Altenberg in 1996 in Evolution is a must read!

Complex Adaptations and the Evolution of Evolvability (read online free)
FYI, Laura Nuño de la Rosa used a co-citation analysis to show that Wagner & Altenberg (1996), Houle (1992), and Kirschner & Gerhart (1998), were the three key papers that made "evolvability" into a "true research front"

Pues me voy a animar como dije el otro día a hacer un proyecto 365, pero en vez de haciendo fotos, editando fotos mías antiguas, random, basadas en el mood de cada día.
La única limitación que me voy a poner, va a ser el formato 1:1... A ver lo que sale xD
I´ll say it also in English :)
I´m gonna try a photography 365 project, but instead of taking photos, processing old random photos of mine...
Only one rule: the square format.
Let´s see what I got, which will be directly affected by the mood of the day...

#Venus has strong associations with bubbles, because they bring joy, pleasure, and excitement, and are frequently used to mark happy occasions.
They are a literal representation of #effervescence, which is a #Venusian feature, and are often paired with #sugar (ruled by Venus), as in #soda, or used in #alcoholic beverages, which reduce social inhibitions and can stir the libidinal instincts.
For those reasons, #Venus is associated with #champagne, mineral water, and #bubbly drinks of all variety. They, along with #greentea, make great Venus #offerings.
