On May 1st, 1921 the #Jaffa riots also known as "Me'oraot Tarpa" started in the land of #Israel as a result 47 #Jews were murdered and 146 were injured. ImageImageImage
Many times on #college #campuses, we tend to hear that prior to the #establishment of the State of Israel, Arabs and Jews lived "#peacefully" side by side, and the State of Israel was the reason the the hostility against the Jews. This argument is wrong, it is false.
The Jaffa riots were a series of violent riots in Mandatory Palestine on May 1–7, 1921, an attack by Arabs on Jews during which many were killed. The rioting began in Jaffa and spread to other parts of the country #Rehovot, #PetahTikva, #Hadera and elsewhere.

Hi everyone. Trying to stay quiet and mindful during these times - so not posting here often. But here's a quick thread for my #academictwitter colleagues and those working in #postsecondary #university #college settings now. /1
Some of us in teaching positions are in the position of deciding whether to "stay the course", provide a sense of "normalcy", etc. when it comes to our coursework and obligations to students.

So a few words for those not sure what business as usual might entail. /2
I'll preface this with an acknowledgement that I'm 1) a tenure-track prof w/ 2) considerable autonomy in an academic program 3) w/leadership that respects the work I do in the classroom. I realize this isn't typical, so what I'm sharing might not reflect your situation. FWIW: /3

1/ WARNING: POSSIBLE TRIGGER LANGUAGE, EVENTS or SITUATIONS
Read sad story last night about Dr. Bucci, 50 year old Phychology & Brain Sciences Dept. Chairman, at Dartmouth that committed #Suicide 11 months after a lawsuit was filed by graduate #students in his department. He
2/ was NOT accused of sexual misconduct, but named in the suit for knowing about the professors’ inappropriate behavior as the Chair.I share many of the same feelings he expressed to friends and colleagues in his emails before he took his own life like: the case was deeply
3/ personal; reputation had been damaged; physical health diminished; false portrayal of his actions; being blamed unfairly; allegations & process “unfair”; how can they ever undo what they did to me & #wronglyaccused. Similarly, how I had reported the #disability

2/ to the DemLEFT on the floor of the House in fighting back at the absurd & very very dangerous weaponization of a political tool to repeatedly overthrow any Presidential election by the losing pol. party! Surely,U MUST know,&should be saying it more in interviews&pressers like
3/ @SteveScalise & @GOPLeader said on the FLR TDY,that this is all about the LEFT’s future POWER lust/grab for permanent CONTROL over USA. In the LEFT’s mind their actions since Nov2016 have proven that they believe they are entitled to permanent POWER in FedGovt over USA& will

While the expression #FOMO or "Fear of Missing Out" is widely used, the "Desire of Missing Out" a.k.a. DOMO is not. Perhaps it is taboo but DOMO is likely more common than most people think. [THREAD 1/]
#Millennial lexicon, i.e., FOMO, has normalized the need to belong (Baumeister & Leary, 1995) or what is known as affiliation motivation (McClelland, Koestner, & Weinberger, 1989) in academic psychology.
2/
Clinical as well as social and personality #psychologists have long recognized the need to belong as a key dimension of human motivation and central to conceptions of personality functioning. 3/

QUICK START GUIDE, BIDEN-CHINA begins with Obama-Biden Administration's friendly tilt toward China. Leftist #BigTech and #College donors, eyeing massive consumer market and enrollment of 'full-boat' Chinese students set table for 'greening' of US-China relations. Election 2012:
With Obama's 'Asia Pivot' #JoeBiden's horrific political judgement lands with his 2013 AF2 China flight, deplaning #HunterBiden, whose #RosemontSeneca (includes Sen. John Kerry's stepson #ChrisHeinz) departs with $1.5 BILLION #BohaiHarvestRST deal backed by STATE #BankofChina
Politically #BidenChina tops #BidenUkraine:
* China a world power
* Monetary amounts larger
* China info on record. Ukraine foggy.
* Bidens together clearly using AF2 on business
* Ukraine hurts Biden & Trump while boosting Warren
* China only hurts Biden

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.

Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

You know, I have so so so many thoughts about this topic. I’ll sum it up by:

Great for my @Morehouse brothers, but this story is still a band-aid on a massive problem.
You know about those stories that pop up in the news? The ones about how some disadvantaged soul goes through inordinate struggles to do every day activities, and receives the golden ticket to make their lives better?
Like this one, who gets a car from their boss for walking twenty miles to work,

విద్యా విధానంలో @PawanKalyan ప్రసంగం విన్న తర్వాత, ఇంత కాలం నా లోపల ఉన్న కోపం, నిరాశను నియంత్రించలేక, నేను బయటకు వచ్చి మాట్లాడటానికి ఇది సరైన సమయం అని నేను భావిస్తున్నాను.

మీకు తెలుసా, US లో దాదాపు 90% మంది విద్యార్థులు (kindergarten to 12th grade) ప్రభుత్వ పాఠశాలల్లో చేరుతారు!

ప్రభుత్వ పాఠశాల వ్యవస్థ ఎంత బలంగా ఉందో అర్థం చేసుకోండి!!

అలాగే, ఎవరూ విద్యను వ్యాపారంగా భావించరు.
ఎంత మందికి తెలుసు ప్రపంచంలో టాప్ 10 విశ్వవిద్యాలయాలలో వున్న మసాచుసెట్స్ ఇన్స్టిట్యూట్ ఆఫ్ టెక్నాలజీ (MIT), Stanford విశ్వవిద్యాలయం, హార్వర్డ్ విశ్వవిద్యాలయం ప్రైవేట్ (Private) మరియు లాభాపేక్షలేని (Non-profit) విశ్వవిద్యాలయాలు అని?

మన భారతదేశంలో ఇలా ఊహించగలమా?

Let's start our #GEMChats this week. The topic of this week is #student #entrepreneurship!

We'll discuss these three factors in the poll options below as well as replies to the poll 🧐🧐🧐 Let's take this forward!
#Students? And #entrepreneurship? Is that even a good combination?

Especially when you read that the famous student entrepreneurs like Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg are all dropouts!!!

Can students not only run a #business while studying but also be #successful at it?
Taking a different perspective at this is that while these billionaires are college dropouts, the #idea for the #business all came about when they were in #college! As a young #student, your ideas have a chance at being fresh and can be developed through stringent planning!
