salut salut 👋 😅

l'épisode de #grêles sur ma ferme m'amène à une réflexion:
#agriculteur je suis en première ligne du fameux #ChangementClimatique
Quels sont mes leviers pour agir ?
Quelles actions ai-je déjà fait ?

Alors #Thread

📸 féveroles d'hiver grêlées à 95% ⤵️ ImageImage
La grêle n'est pas un fait nouveau chez nous. Mais elle devient plus récurrente et surtout elle a suivi un chemin géographique différent cette fois.

C'est là en général que certains évoquent les conséquences des #eoliennes implantées en masse ici, mais je ne peux en juger. Image
En 2021 nous avons eu des #inondations au 14 juillet. Du jamais vu ici. (Vallée d'Oise)
En 2022, même endroit, même date: #secheresse
Pas d'irrigation.
J'adapte mon assolement avec moins de cultures de printemps et la #vigne est arrivée en 2021

There is no concept of Engagement in Islam :A Thread🧵 Image
Engagement is the time between acceptance of the marriage proposal (khitba) and the marriage ceremony (‘aqd). Once the proposal is accepted, the man and the woman are known as “engaged to be married or simply “engaged”. Engagement has no recognition in Islamic laws Image
Who Proposes?

#Traditionally in all #cultures, it is the man who proposes to the woman; and it is done either directly by the man himself or on his behalf by his family. In the
West, even now man is expected to get down on his one knee to propose to the woman he wants to marry Image

Very proud of this team effort "A regional integrated assessment of the impacts of #climatechange and of the potential #adaptation avenues for #Quebec’s #forests" is now published

A (very long) thread. Buckle up!…

My trip to a Christian Market
#PublicSchool #Report
By Shlomit Ben David, age 10

Last week my family and me visited New York, where many Christians live.

My dad asked if I wanted to visit a #Christian #ethnic #neighborhood and I said yes because I am very interested in all #different #cultures. In the Christian neighborhood there were special places for Christian people to enjoy.

I saw treyf restaurants, Christian shuls, Christaica shops, and even a special #Christian #market where they buy their special treyf food. I asked if we can go into the market and my dad said yes.

A significant number of Luhyas still follow the traditional marriage route rather than the “civilised” route called wedding.

The very first step is INTRODUCTION.

Introduction is when the man goes with a group of his…
…fellow young men and at least a lady in the company (mostly the sister) to introduce himself. During the introduction, the main man who will be looking for a hand in marriage in the woman’s home will not talk or will talk very little, he will instead have a spokesman and an…
…assistant whom he will be seated in between them. (The essence if the lady in the company is mostly to act as a messenger in future if the marriage request is approved so that whenever there is an issue within his brother’s marriage and the wife leaves, she is the one who…

Today @GeneticAll_UK is launching a new report, ‘Good Diagnosis:Improving the experiences of #diagnosis for people living with rare conditions’.

Read the full report…
Over a third of people living with a #RareCondition
will wait for more than five years to obtain a
definitive #diagnosis, often receiving a number of
#misdiagnoses along the way

The ‘diagnostic odyssey’ is a term used to describe the time taken between a patient first developing #symptoms and receiving a correct #MedicalDiagnosis. This can be a long and eventful journey.

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!

Profitons de #LemissionPourLaTerre 📺 pour faire le point sur l'#élevage bovin 🐄 en France et la consommation de #viande 🥩.

@Min_Ecologie @France2tv @le_Parisien @FondationNH La production de #viande consomme-t’elle beaucoup d’#eau ?
@Min_Ecologie @France2tv @le_Parisien @FondationNH @plumedeschamps @MacLesggy @NathalieMarcha4 @ChouetteAgile @MathieuRobert3 @pdelfortrie @agrihs76 Pour produire 1 kg de viande, seuls 50L à 70L d'eau en moyenne suffisent.
L'idée reçue selon laquelle il faudrait 15 000 litres d'eau vient de la méthode Waterfootprint, qui comptabilise en réalité 3 types d’#eau.

Born & raised in #Fanar #Lebanon, a tiny country in the middle east with a lot to offer. I always had a positive outlook on life maybe because of the culture or values🤷‍♀️.
If you don't know #Lebanon or a #lebanese then you should start mingling 🤣
@IWS_Network #VoicesIWS
I grew up surrounded by a loving, joking & tough type of family that always support each other even amidst fighting. You can imaging being 4 kids in different age groups can cause a lot of fights growing up 😂 #siblingsfight #family #VoicesIWS
I have my issues🤷‍♀️! I always wanted to prove myself & make my family proud(2nd child). A pressure that was just in my head; they were always proud of us. I wanted to grow up to be a doctor or an army officer like my dad. Let's just say I changed my mind! #VoicesIWS @IWS_Network

At the start of this week, I said that I've grown up between 2 #cultures. I imagine many of you navigate more than one #culture 2. So what are some of your experiences navigating more than one culture? #navigating2cultures

For example, for me....
At work, I use cutlery; at home, I eat rice & curry with my hands. That is the best way to eat rice and curry. Eating with cutlery just doesn't cut it. You can't mix the food in the same way. & while we're myth busting, we NEVER eat just 1 curry with rice!!!

My mum once sent me to school with coconut oil in my hair - because in Sri Lanka, coconut oil is thought to be good for hair. Of course, everyone laughed at me and I never did that again! Now, I see coconut oil is in lots of hair products...🤔 #navigating2cultures
