Is Grove City College going woke? Two things can be true at once:

1) GCC is one of the most conservative, solid schools out there. It has done a good job resisting the foolish zeitgeist.

2) GCC has some problems. Some staff and faculty have taught/teach woke-stuff.
Both are true. If you doubt the former, that is for a different thread. But if you doubt the latter, I am sorry to say there is overwhelming evidence it is true.

Last month concerned parents and alumni sent an open letter to the college president:…
There are specific allegations, including a CRT-promoting chapel speaker who was intentionally brought in by the chaplain, RA training from the multi-cultural director that included teaching "inner racism, white privilege and white guilt,"

today an #immigration judge told our @BU_Law clinic students, "you’ve done a tremendous job - this family is very lucky to have been represented by you & to have such detailed & excellent representation." then she granted our client #asylum from two different countries. thread 1/
our client & two generations of her family (all of whom were also granted #asylum today) fled horrific violence in the northern triangle - including childhood abuse, trafficking, gang violence & domestic violence. much of it inflicted by our gov't:… 2/
despite the compelling circumstances, this family still needed 400 pgs of evidence, traumatizing forensic/psych evaluations & had to prove they are "credible." this required incredibly dedicated @BU_Law clinic students, working long hours on the factual & legal components 3/

Spontane Heparin-induzierte Thrombozytopenie.
Was ist das? Und was hat das mit #AstraZeneca zu tun?

Die Heparin-induzierte #Thrombozytopenie ist eine mögliche #Nebenwirkung bei Heparingabe. Bekannt sind vor allem zwei Formen, netterweise Typ 1 und 2 genannt. 1/
Typ 1 ist relativ häufig (10-20%) aber ungefährlich. Hierbei wechselwirkt Heparin direkt mit den Blutplättchen (#Thrombozyten) und es passiert nix, außer, dass sich das die Blutplättchenzahl etwas verringert. Keine #Komplikationen. Man gibt das Heparin sogar einfach weiter. 2/
Typ 2 ist etwas ungemütlicher, dafür auch seltener (0,1-5% je nach Heparin). Hierbei werden Antikörper gegen das Molekül #PF-4 gebildet, das auf den Blutplättchen liegt. Diese verklumpen dadurch und es bilden sich Thromben. Z.B. Sinusvenenthrombosen. 3/

1/ "The entire audience was white and casually well-dressed"

~Greg Pritchard, describing his first experience of @WillowCreekCC in 1983, in his 1995 book "Willow Creek Seeker Services", Chapter 1.
2/ "Credibility: Hybels seeks to be a reliable & trusted friend to a visiting unchurched Harry. He wants to be honest & sincere & show genuine affection for Harry. See chapter 8."

~Greg Pritchard, who I guess had the wool pretty much pulled over his eyes, in "WCSS"
3/ "An ironic Willow Creek Proverb expresses this same idea: 'Exhaustion in next to Godliness'"

~Greg Pritchard, "Willow Creek Seeker Services", Chapter 2.

Capability to impose an Indian Ocean blockade on a nuclear armed enemy, has good #Deterrant value as the final conventional deterrent, below the nuclear threshold. The suggestions to shift the battle from Himalayas to the Indian Ocean are however, strategically ill considered
2/xxx Idea would be to #Deter China(by ability to cripple its oil imports & trade) from converting a hot border war into a full fledged war against Indian heartland(including by bringing a substantial part of its US-facing assets into Tibet+Xinjiang). #Deterrence=#NoWar in IO
3/xxx Sucessfull IO deterrence of kind indicated👆🏼, would mean fighting a cold war(not hot) in the littoral States and islands of Indian Ocean, which requires geoeconomics, geopolitics and diplomacy as much as, or more than, naval warfighting.

#NationalSecurityStrategy #Credibility #DualisticTrdPol Bearing costs is the only credible way to signal a change in policy. Higher tariffs & NTBs on imports from China are credible, precisely because they also impose some cost on ourselves. Empty Talk is cheap and non-credible.
2/lad #Ladakh This thread seems credible given the clearer maps:
2/nss In a #democracy, a #voluntary #private #boycott of #CCPchinaInc organized by #civil #society, can be a powerful instrument, if and when, 100s of 1000s of free people voluntarily bear the higher cost of not buying cheap chinese goods. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

***On the conditions of authority in academic publics***

This thread 👇🏼 summarizes recent article by Ingrid Piller in Journal of #Sociolinguistics for the busy reader

#research #AcademicTwitter Image
Q: What makes a #text credible, trustworthy and authoritative?

Many people think it's the quality of #discourse: that some ways of using #language make text more believable

Certainly true BUT: world leaders may talk complete nonsense and still command authority and get elected ImageImage
That is because "#authority comes to #language from outside” (Bourdieu, 1991, p. 109) Image

It’s key to understand that these handles were not just picked out of the sky.

This was a planned, structured & orchestrated #InfoOp to take down & accuse without reproachment.

Notice how the #Indian media announced the reason for the suspensions today, as they come online.
The article in the @DeccanChronicle was a manufactured disinformation piece, designed to be used as a basis to cover up #India’s failure in #Balakot. Image
The #Indian media prepared their domestic audience for the online debate with this accusation, which questions the security of #India in #OSINT hands.

Another manufactured article to give a longer news cycle to India vs Pakistan.…
