Thank you @IWS_Network for giving me the opportunity to share my #story 💜 ! This a part of Voices Without Frontiers program… #IWS #WomenInSTEM #VoicesIWS #ecology #conservation #biodiversity
I was born in #saopaulo, #Brazil’s largest city, very different from the #Amazon Rainforest & Rio! See me and a #samauma, the most famous Amazon tree 🌳
Also me & @IsabelaHissa in front of Sao Paulo’s #MASP (Modern Art Museum) & me and my mom in #Rio! #VoiceIWS @IWS_Network Image
I can say I lived in a great #rainforest because Sao Paulo & most of the coast of Brazil are in the Atlantic Forest 🌴🌺🐍. It is one of the 34 world’s #hotspots of #biodiversity, with more than 1500 plant species and 90% of original area loss. #VoiceIWS @IWS_Network Source: https://www.e-educa...

Les secrets d'une mystérieuse momie de pharaon.

Depuis des décennies, les chercheurs tentaient de comprendre les circonstances du décès de Séqénenrê Taa II, dont la momie porte des marques visibles de blessures au visage.

Séqénenrê Taa II, dit "le Courageux", a régné sur
l'Égypte près de 1 600 ans avant notre ère, durant la XVIIe dynastie (-1625 à -1549).

Il a, notamment, dirigé les troupes égyptiennes contre les envahisseurs asiatiques Hyksôs, premiers étrangers à avoir conquis le Delta du Nil.

S'appuyant, notamment, sur des images en trois
dimensions, l'étude, menée par l'archéologue Zahi Hawass et le professeur de radiologie à l'Université du Caire Sahar Salim, suggère que le pharaon a été tué par ses adversaires lors d'une "cérémonie d'exécution", après avoir été fait prisonnier sur le champ de bataille,

"The delusions of the #rulingclass, which I have come to believe are more advanced & also less treated despite access to health care, are imposed on society, top to bottom. Their own #psychological #poverty must be compensated for, or duplicated, in the lower classes."
"They are tearing away the humanness from #culture, but only up to a point because they don’t really know the ingredients for #human. Just as they don’t experience desire, only an obsessive impulse for power and hoarding." Image
"If #Bezos or #Musk didn’t have wealth to hoard, they would be like those old men in pension hotels, their rooms stacked to the ceiling with fading and deteriorating magazines, and old milk cartons." Image

आपले राष्ट्रीय चिन्ह : सारनाथ येथील अशोकस्तंभ - 2300 वर्षाचा इतिहास!!

1940 च्या शेवटी-शेवटी पश्चिम बंगाल येथील शांतिनिकेतनमधील विश्वभारतीच्या तरुण विद्यार्थ्याला एक 'असामान्य' असे काम नेमून देण्यात आले व त्यामुळे त्याला कलकत्ता येथील प्राणी
संग्रहालयात असलेल्या सिंहांचे निरीक्षण करण्यासाठी दररोज 200 किलोमीटरचा प्रवास करावा लागत होता, हा प्रवास त्याने 1 महिना रोज केला होता. त्या 21 वर्षीय विद्यार्थ्याचे नाव होते 'दीनानाथ भार्गव'.

त्याच्या या प्राणिसंग्रहालयाच्या दैनंदिन सहलींच्या माध्यमातून तो त्याच्या
कारकीर्दीतील सर्वात महत्त्वाच्या ठरणार्‍या कामगिरीची तयारी करत होता आणि ती कामगिरी दुसरी-तिसरी कोणतीही नव्हती तर भारताच्या राष्ट्रीय प्रतीक चिन्हाच्या रचनेवर त्याला काम करायचे होते.

हे प्रतीकचिन्ह महान राजा असलेले सम्राट अशोक यांनी स्थापन केलेल्या सारनाथ येथील

Inga Clendinnen "Dancing with Strangers"

In this thread students @MQLinguistics read Clendinnen's historical #ethnography based on the diaries of the officers of the 1st fleet to learn about #InterculturalCommunication between British colonizers and Sydney's Indigenous people
#DancingWithStrangers is a story of confusion and ignorance of #culture #language, aspirations, traditions and #law
One of the most tragic figures is Baneelon, an Australian kidnapped by Governor Phillip and taught English in a desperate attempt to create an intermediary.
The detailed musings of the white men in #DancingWithStrangers contrast with the deafening silence of any women's voices - what did the Indigenous and colonising #women think of each other? Of the men they encountered? How different would history be if women had been in charge?

#Trudeau jets to Tofino for vacation on 1st "#TruthAndReconciliation" day.

Father of my children, #Indian, #sixtiesscoop survivor, worked all day to survive in #colonial system. He can no longer sit in a local coffee shop, let alone a plane. #NoJab…
#TruthAndReconciliation is marketing-as is #OrangeShirtDay2021 & holiday for white people on stolen land. Reconciliation would be giving land back. EuroAmerican destroys everything in path. #Indigenous peoples rep. less than 5% of pop. -yet support approx. 80% all #biodiversity.
#TruthBeforeReconciliation would be criminal charges against those responsible for res. schools & dead children. "However, as w/ any criminal case, the charges would be laid by the Crown—which would essentially amount to the govt putting itself on trial."…

(1/7)भारत के पर्व-त्योहार, परंपराओं और रीति-रिवाजों ने देश की अपरंपार विविधताओं को बचाने में सबसे बड़ा योगदान दिया है।
अब नोनी की ही बात कर ली जाए, अगर जितिया (जीवित पुत्रिका व्रत) जैसा कोई व्रत नहीं होता, तो इस बेहद गुणकारी भोज्य पदार्थों का अस्तित्व रहता? ImageImageImageImage
(2/7)आज जितिया व्रत का शुभारंभ नहाय-खाय के साथ हुआ है। इस व्रत में नोनी का साग, मरुआ के आटे की रोटी, झिंगनी (तोरी) इत्यादि चीज़े खाई जाती हैं और इसी बहाने इन सब चीज़ों का नई पीढ़ी से नाता जुड़ पाता है।

ग्लोबलाइजेशन के दौर में, हम सब ने अपने आपको बेहद समेट लिया है।
(3/7)अब अपने आप को खोलने की जरूरत है। अपने खानपान में मडुआ, नोनी जैसे सैकड़ों स्वास्थ्यवर्धक वस्तुओं को शामिल करने की जरूरत हैं।आइये इस पोस्ट में इन दोनों गुणकारी चीजों से जुड़ी कुछ बातें जानते हैं।

नोनी दो प्रकार की होती हैं। एक छोटी नोनी जो जिउतिया पर्व में खाया जाता है,

Collectors: It's not just about status or money, it's about supporting artists who have invested years into developing their craft. Artists have been overlooked for far too long, yet continue to pour into what they are passionate about. Artists make our world a much better place.
Being an art #collector, whether in #cryptoart, #nft's, traditional #art, or many other art forms - it must primarily stem from a love for beauty, skill, creativity, nature, meaning, and thinking. Great art makes us appreciate, connect, aspire, reflect, and adjust perspectives.
As collectors, we help to recognize these talents in original artwork. Collecting from underrated, undervalued, underappreciated, unknown #artists who display stunning aptitudes for creating is a joy and a privilege, as it communicates to artists that they are valued and seen.

[Thread] Projet @polychainmon

Préparez le café et les gâteaux, mettez vous à l'aise et prenez le temps car le #thread est assez long.

Nous allons aborder dans un premier temps le projet sous forme de chiffres et de stats, puis dans un second temps, l'aspect jeu & #PlayToEarn
On commence par les investisseurs derrière le projet qui sont @MoonrockCapital (@polkastarter) & @Morningstar_vc

Ils ont permis de réaliser une levée de fonds de 740 000 $.

Ce qui permet à une équipe de travailler sereinement pendant plusieurs mois sans soucis financiers.
On peut penser que si des fonds d'investissements pousse le projet @polychainmon, c'est qu'ils pensent faire de l'#argent et qu'ils croient au projet.

On est donc (en théorie) loin du #rugpull avec la team anonyme sans aucune références.

In this thread 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼students @MQLinguistics @Macquarie_Uni share what they've learned so far (1st quarter of semester)

Favorite facts about #languages and #cultures in #contact
In #Arabic we say: “Footprints indicate trajectory”, but I never thought that a wheel would reveal a culture. This is how #cultures can be traced through #languages. The reading made me feel like I am solving a puzzle more than exploring languages.
Think twice before starting to learn #English, cuz you’ll end up learning even more -- #German and #French, and more …
After all, it was the Anglo-Saxons and Normans who influenced the vocabulary!!
English is a mixed #language!
