A million applause for this work.
Thank you @RapperPandit.
Every #Indian and #European should read this and acknowledge.
Indians have been looted by not just material wealth, but knowledge.

Special thanks to @NileshOak
#Bharat #India has been lied, looted, abused for centuries.
While west believed #Earth was flat and center of #UNIVERSE, India had advanced #Mathematics, #cosmology, metallurgy and #Engineering.
#Europe takes it, refurbishes, labels it their own.
@RajivMessage - U turn theory
How was this possible?
Explained systematically by @RajivMessage U turn theory.
#Indian historians were suppressed or corrupted for money. Libraries were burnt by Islamic invaders.
Europeans wrote #History to suit their agenda. Brainwashed the entire world.
No more ignorance.

Clarifications à l’intention de tous #thread
Ce n’est pas être #raciste que de s’opposer aux racailles qui volent, cassent, insultent, violent, agressent plus que tout le monde et à l’immigration incontrôlée qui importe ses problèmes et ses conflits sur le territoire
Ce n’est pas être #islamophobe que de s’opposer aux fondamentalistes religieux qui menacent et brutalisent jusque dans leur propre famille et cherchent à imposer par la terreur la barbarie liberticide dans nos vies. Toutes les religions sont concernées.

It was lunch time in #Brazil on a Saturday in 1990 when I decided it was time to be born! I grew up in a large city in #SãoPaulo called #Guarulhos, which in Tupi (native language) means “eaters” or “big-bellied people”. Here’s the proof I am “Guarulhense”:

Our #family was not wealthy, but my parents made sure I had good #education, even if that meant sacrificing part of their own life. For that I will be forever #grateful. They made sure I learned how to #appreciate everything I had that money could not buy.

I loved learning about #science in school. Not only because it is #fascinating, but also because my biology teacher, Diógenes (@spock_alvo), had great #enthusiasm when teaching it! His motivation would #inspire me to fall in 💜 with the 🧠! #teachinggoals

When it comes to corporate #culture, do companies walk the talk?

Our @mitsmr paper finds no correlation between official #coreValues and employees' assessment of how well companies live those values

(Eees' assessment from 1.4 million @Glassdoor #Culture500 reviews)

1/
We studied 560 large, mainly US based companies.

82% publicized official corporate #values, and most companies had 3-7 values

We identified 62 distinct values listed by at least 1% of the companies and grouped similar ones (e.g., ethics, integrity, morality) together

2/
Diversity of values is striking. Most commonly cited value (integrity) listed by fewer than 2/3rds of companies. Long tail of different values

We question the value of frameworks that reduce all corporate cultures to a few universal values or a 2x2 matrix

Fact:
Jewish people migrated to “Hollywood,” founded & created it, milked black people for their #culture, & music, and catered to the KKK and racism in America.

They diliberately created a social system putting black people at the bottom.. Thus the role we’re mostly cast in.
This says it all:
How many dummies on twitter does it take to ACTUALLY know what racism is...? LMAOOO

These are the #stories of #math that we celebrate, amplify and make central to the idea of #maths as a #objective #neutral #culture-free subject. #Math can do no #harm, and the #logical “pure math” thinking of #Mathematicians is worthy of emulation. But... 1/x
2/x ... "What about pure mathematics and mathematicians who merely prove theorems? Is there any #ethical component comparable to what you find in other fields of #science?" - R. Hersh in Experiencing #Mathematics
3/x One point of view: "there's no need for #mathematicians to have a code of #ethics, because what we do matters so little that we can do whatever we like."

I've just bought @GalZellermayer's new book "Manager in Shorts". I've read the first chapter (chapter 0) and can't wait for reading more.

"This book will make you aware." Image
@GalZellermayer Quote as I go thread

Chapter 1

"Aim to master 4 domains: T & 3 Ps:
Technology - you know: coding, design, architecture, databases, frontend, and so on.

Product - what are we building and why? Process - plan and execute.
People - (-:

“In this order”
Chapter 2

@GalZellermayer identified the above quote is lacking agility and accuracy. He mentions that @jewelia noted (and better expressed) that too, in her tweet

So , vous vous rappelez de ce #thread #cultureBite @bite_culture de la semaine passé sur le #carrapide ? On avait fait le 1er tour du sujet avec son identité et son histoire au #Senegal
Dans cette 2eme partie ; nous allons nous amuser un peu à étaler ses influence culturelles.
En mai 2017 le @Musee_Homme de Paris réalise une série de court documentaire (dispo sur @YouTube) sur la symbolique du car rapide qui se termine par la révélation d’un replica du #carrapide au Musée à Paris. Vous comprenez ? ce “cercueil roulant” est symbolique 😊
Sir Instagram, il n’est pas inhabituel de voir que le hashtag #carrapide réunit un bon nombre de photographie. En effet, les photos de #car rapide dans les rues de dakar ont leur place sur @instagram et comptabilisé plus de 2,1k de mention ; c’est bon non ?

Welcome back to another episode of the #WildAboutFacts series. Today, we are taking over your feed with pictures and #trivia of one of the most alluring creatures from the #wild, the #RedPanda.

Join us, share your #photographs of the #Firefox of the #Himalayas.

📷Sourav Mondal
#WildAboutFacts

Its distinctive fur has earned this species monikers such as #Firefox, Firecat, or Fire-coloured Cat. Arguably, the #RedPanda is the only true #Panda, as the #GiantPanda, which is believed to be closely related, belongs to the #bear family.

📷Senthil Murugan
#WildAboutFacts

Around half of the #RedPanda’s natural habitat lies in the Eastern #Himalayas#Nepal, #Sikkim, northern #WestBengal, #Bhutan, and #ArunachalPradesh.

Its remaining home is in northern #Myanmar and a few provinces of central #China.

#LearningReimagined 🌍

“Do away with curriculum. Do away with segregation by age. And do away with the idea that there should be uniformity of all schools and of what people learn.” 👈🏼

#EducationReimagined

link.medium.com/PTrBmX5Hz7
The education conveyor belt of the last century that went school to university to work and a job for life just doesn’t work in an era of rapid transformation.

#highered #highereducation
Over the past few weeks, schools all over the world have abandoned exams and testing that used to be required — and with them, the pretense that they ever really meant anything in the first place.

#WorldEnvironmentDay2020 we bring you the story of #Mumbai's only #botanicalgarden, one of its most important environmental assets. Read the thread to know more about the founding of this important #green lung which was established together with #BDLMuseum in late 19th century
The Veermata Jijabai Bhonsale Udyan, formerly known as Victoria Gardens, was established with the #BDLMuseum as it's sister institution, enabling each other as "a Hall of Wonder and a Garden of Delight".

USE THIS #Thread #Paradox of #AntiracistEdLeadership in #Edsystems- thoughts I've been really mulling abt in the past while. Have to admit, I've been sitting on this for a couple weeks. Grateful to those who helped me sift through my thinking <3 Here's to #courageousconversations
True #AntiRacist Leadership can only happen when you are anchored in #communities and you do the work #buildrelationships #seekadvice #love & #beLoved by those who give you #permission & #legitimacy to continue the struggle in boardrooms.
When I became a senior leader in Edu. I was advised that - You cannot be on the streets & in the boardrooms. "its time to choose. Its a different struggle." I didnt choose bc WE deserve to be in the boardroom but THAT choice comes at a #price
