Corpuses — large collections of language data — are very useful for writing and editing language-learning materials. This presentation explores how and why, with some specific examples...

One key is 'frequency lists'. Frequency lists are lists of words based on how frequently they appear in a language. It tells us if any given word is common or rare.
/3

Frequent words are useful. People use them again and again — meaning learners are exposed to them frequently naturally, too. And, the learner has opportunities to use them again and again — giving practice in production.

Azadi is not an option
A #Thread
What does a misguided #Kashmiri mean by “Azaadi”? Is it the right to #equality, right to #freedom, right against exploitation, right to freedom of religion, cultural & educational rights, right to property & right to constitutional remedies
(1/27)
If that is the meaning of “Azaadi” then it is already entrusted to them through the #constitution then who are these people and why are they asking for Azadi?
(2/27)
The people of #kashim for long have been disassociated with the #progress in mainland due to provisions of #Article_370 which restricted the investment and #development in the state.

How Security Forces are changing the narrative in Kashmir post 5 Aug 2019. A #thread

#Kashmir is witnessing a major decline in #terrorists activities post abrogation of #Article370. A major positive shift is the 42% decline in youth joining terror groups this year.
(1/11)
The strategy was multi-pronged: from sustained pin-point operations to dissuading potential recruits from joining #terrorist ranks to social media monitoring to appealing to the "misguided youth" through their mothers.
(2/11)

@neeraj_rajput @Tiny_Dhillon @AlphaWo40963407
Another positive aspect has been that no stone-pelting incidents are being reported during anti-#terrorist operations this year. Stone-pelting protests at the encounter sites had emerged as a major problem for security forces in #Kashmir since late 2016.

These days, one of our 2019 working papers (@kielinstitute) by MEDAM researchers Claas Schneiderheinze & David Benček received substantial criticism from @m_clem, and is now being very much discussed.

A response.

1/6
The MEDAM research links rising #incomes with decreasing #emigration in poor countries thus challenging the causal interpretation of the “migration hump”.

2/6 Image
The critique is fundamental & sounds persuasive. @m_clem criticizes:
1) using annual data gives too much weight to bursts & busts
2) time fixed effects mask long-term econ. progress
3) the empirical setup with absolute emigration, GDP & population leads to spurious results

Engineering a City #thread
Having spent my entire childhood in #Kochi (#Cochin ), it feels criminal to not know the story of how the city came to be the #metropolis it is today. Putting together a thread to trace the journey of the city which has been so endearingly mine (1)
Part 1: The #Malabar Mud-Banks
The story of Cochin is not just about how an engineering marvel can change social fabric, but also of many tenets of #British #Colonialism in India which is often taken for granted, passed off lazily as exploitation, missing nuance (2)
As with any coastal town, the cultural and economic history of Kochi is intertwined with maritime trade routes since the time of the Early Romans and Arabs. Thanks to the #biennale , most of us would now be familiar with the term #Muzuris (3)

We’re excited to share our newest publication @nature. With #scRNAseq we investigated 10 key #epigenetic regulators in #embryogenesis. Interesting early task for #Polycomb! Meissner lab @MPI_MolGen & @HSCRB /w @helenekretzmer & Zachary D. Smith (1/13) nature.com/articles/s4158…
What is normal in #devbio? First, we generated a single-cell reference of WT mouse #gastrulation and early organogenesis to which we later compared mutant phenotypes. We identified 42 embryonic and extraembryonic cell states and placed them in a lineage tree. (2/13) Image
Our WT reference is time-resolved covering #embryo stages E6.5-8.5. Variation is information: We pooled multiple embryos with unique SNP profiles per single-cell experiment; cell-to-embryo assignment is possible from scRNA data. (3/13) Image

#History of Pakistan’s Proxy War in #Kashmir
#Thread
1.
1.Three unsuccessful wars of 1947,1965 & 1971 made #Pakistan realize that annexation of #Kashmir was a tough nut to crack through conventional wars after which it resorted to its tried & tested means of Proxy war... ImageImage
2.
..which it had used in #Afghanistan (Operation GIBRALTAR) with a strategy of 'bleeding India by a thousand cuts'. However, the action started in #Kashmir only after 1987 due to its involvement in #Afghanistan
3.
The late President Zia-ul-Haq code named the #Proxy war as Operation #TOPAC as it was his brain child for annexation of Kashmir through an amalgam of subterfuge, subversion, force & religious fundamentalism.. Image

#OPINION 📰 Reform of @CGIAR is long overdue. However, IPES-Food is concerned that the current reform process will fall short of the fundamental change that is required, and risks exacerbating major power imbalances in global agricultural #development. 👇

ipsnews.net/2020/07/one-cg…
The process now underway to reform the @CGIAR is of major public interest. Since its inception at the height of the ‘Green Revolution’ in 1971, the #CGIAR has driven advances in crop breeding and agricultural mechanization and modernization across multiple continents.
The CGIAR's mission – to develop knowledge and innovation for #agriculture in the global South – is as relevant today as ever, in light of #climatechange, #COVID19 and a host of additional challenges.

Comment se fait-il que le beurre que nous consommons à Kinshasa provient des Ardennes et autres régions européennes ? Pourtant, nous avons en #RDC tout ce qu'il nous faut pour en produire et commercialiser. Cette question est valide pour tout autre produit. #development #policy
Posons-nous des questions sur nos habitudes en tant que consommateurs ainsi que leurs conséquences sur l'économie de notre pays.
Les agro-entrepreneurs se posent-ils ces questions ? On-t-ils réfléchi à comment inciter leurs compatriotes à consommer local ? Inciter cette fibre patriotique dans la consommation des produits congolais ?
