Les français sont-ils bien informés sur le #pjlbioéthique que l’@AssembleeNat s’apprête à voter en plein été dans un hémicycle déserté ?
La loi de #bioéthique modifie profondément la #filiation et débouche sur l’#eugénisme ! Elle pose de nombreuses questions.
Voici 12 bonnes raisons de NE PAS voter le #pjlbioéthique, Mesdames et Messieurs les Députés de l'@AssembleeNat
1) L'ouverture de la #PMA aux femmes seules ou en couple va créer délibérément des #orphelins de père, à qui il manquera la moitié de leurs racines familiales, les déstabilisant profondément. Il y aura #discrimination entre ceux qui auront un père et ceux qui n’en auront pas !

Dear diary,
I know no matter what, I must put my feelings aside and never be aggressive to a person. It's part of being a service dog.
But right now I wish I was allowed to take a big crap on the steps of the #AlbertaLegislature to show my disgust. The humans ... 1/9
that have the privilege to represent #Alberta citizens are preaching #inclusion and promising to tear down #barriers and tackle systemic #discrimination are the same people that let my mistress slip through the cracks and are why we live in nearly complete #segregation from...2/9
our community. They claim to promote #inclusion and #independence of the disabled with their tax payer funded program to provide essential #mobility equipment, like the power wheelchair my mistress needs so we can leave our home without human assistance. More than a year...3/9

General saab, any guess why all these cases happens to be the JCOs/NCOs only??

Can you please remind in recent past you have come accross a #ECHS beneficiary officers or dependents refused admission in military hospitals.

Again am forced to say it #Discrimination sir.
You raising the questions and becoming the voice for jawans deserve General #salute but still you are not reaching the moot question, why it happens with JCO/NCOs only??

If you figure out the root cause analysis all problem will be solved.
No govt decide whom to admit, whom not to? Our people are at the helm in #ECHs and in #MHs, they decide things. This case was above 25 years I can give you case of self and entitled family also refused admission in R&R.

We have to first solve the mystry why it happen to JCO/NCOs

1/8 A thread. Oral arguments in my racial #discrimination lawsuit against @acog @PtSafetyCouncil will be heard here in Boston on 6/25. ACOG, a non-profit which receives funding through @HHSGov & @HRSAgov grants, donations & membership fees, has employed 4 lawyers whose job it is
2/8 to suppress my voice by trying to have my case dismissed, or moved to D.C., where their headquarters are located. Last year, @acog initiated a relationship with me to develop a Patient Advisory Group and invited me to apply to become a voting member of the @PtSafetyCouncil.
3/8 I was also invited to and spoke at both their Annual Clinical Conference and their annual AIM meeting in 2019. My membership was denied shortly after I provided @acog employees with documentation that a member of the @PtSafetyCouncil was perpetuating racist ideology about

HIRING: Physicians for Social Justice!

In a time when our nation has seen significant economic & health catastrophy owing to #COVID19, the topic of social determinants of health, health inequalities and health disparities have made headlines. 🧵⬇️
This thankfully, has brought to light, deficiencies in the global construct of our current healthcare system – both in structure and in delivery. At the forefront of these discussions has been the overwhelming evidence that people of minority ethnic/racial backgrounds and those
of lower SES suffer disproportionate rates of infection & death from the dz. While some may argue that the ⬆️ risks are in fact, due to ⬆️ rates of underlying medical risk factors, we ought to also remember & talk about what led to these disparities in risk in the first place.

#Sadhguru has most of India's self-proclaimed #liberals with their underwear twisted when he said he is far more #leftist than most. Recently Mr TM #Krishna launched into a media rant protesting this but with zero factual basis. (1/n)

Social Upliftment - Check
Individual Empowerment - Check
Promoting Gender & Social Equality - Check
Providing Free Education & Healthcare - Check
Erasing Social Inequalities - Check

If all these does not qualify Sadhguru as a leftist, I do not know what will! (2/n)
Here is my post on why I consider India's spiritual gurus as the true #leftists and why TM Krishna is completely wrong.

Unlike Mr TM Krishna, I am presenting only logical arguments without resorting to name calling or abuse. (3/n)

Read sad story last night about Dr. Bucci, 50 year old Phychology & Brain Sciences Dept. Chairman, at Dartmouth that committed #Suicide 11 months after a lawsuit was filed by graduate #students in his department. He

1/5 I am concerned about the growing number of reports of #racism and stigmatizing comments on social media directed to people of Chinese and Asian descent related to #2019nCOV #coronavirus. #EndStigma
2/5 It is understandable that our fears increase during times like this. However, we need to remember that cohesion in our collective efforts is important.
3/5 Everyone has a part to play in preventing the spread of the virus. The Chinese community and all travellers from affected areas are a key part of these efforts. #2019nCoV #coronavirus

#Update #Antisemitic Incident!

#Germany #Gießen #Buchenwald

It was an incident that made headlines far beyond the borders of the 14,000-inhabitant city of #Grünberg (#Gießen).
At the beginning of November, it became known that several students from Theo-Koch School had #played and #sung #Antisemitic songs on their way back from a visit to the memorial in the former #Buchenwald #concentrationcamp near #Weimar.
Even then, the school announced the #consequences. Now school #community has turned to the public - with an #advertisement in a regional #newspapers. In the #ad, which appeared under the heading "Zero #Tolerance with #AntiSemitism",

1/ Given that tomorrow's Lady Hale's valedictory, I thought it a perfect time to list Lady Hale's 10 greatest #discrimination & #ukemplaw hits in the highest court. First up, from way back in 2004, Archibald v Fife on more favourable treatment for disabled people

Day 2 #Gambia v #Myanmar #ICJ begins, w/#ASSK up first. She declares #genocide is a crime, applied by #ICTR to #Rwanda but not to #Kosovo or #Croatia by #ICTY or #ICJ, because of a lack of dolus specialis.
Gambia has put fwd 'Incomplete & misleading factual picture'. Situation in #Rahkine is 'complex & not easy to fathom'. (same rhetoric as we have heard for years)
Complexities go back for yrs. Claims conflict btwn Arakan Army w/5000 fighters & the #Myanmar Army, w/Arakan Army seeking independence. The conflict has led to displacement & security measures such as curfew & checkpoints, applied to all regardless of background.

Let’s be clear: discussion of so-called discrimination without attention to contextual power dynamics & histories of oppression is meaningless & counter-productive.
Asking privileged folks to be aware of their privilege & to be responsible for their guests’ behavior in a space for marginalized people is not discrimination. It is asking folks to attend to & be accountable for power dynamics & histories of oppression that benefit them.
Further, someone being made to feel uncomfortable is not inherently discrimination. Accountability is uncomfortable. Being made aware of (let alone relinquishing some) of your privilege is uncomfortable. One’s feelings of discomfort are not facts/evidence of discrimination.

Hi @torontolibrary,

An event has been announced in your main branch that appears to intend to make the arguments that gender identity is fiction, our #HumanRights laws are bad policy, and #transgender women are not women:

@CheriDiNovo @StraightLGBT @VPL…
TPL policies were put in place that prohibit the rental of your facilities for events intended, or likely, to result in discrimination on prohibited grounds. I will delve further into this below.

You also have policies prohibiting discrimination "of any kind" on your premises.
In 2019, the BC Human Rights Tribunal ruled in "Oger v Whatcott BCHRT 2019 (7)" that displaying material advertising an intention to discriminate on explicitly-prohibited grounds or urging others to do so was prohibited discrimination.

Being a full time student, you always look forward for a break where you can refresh and restart.
One of my greatest passions is travelling and exploring God's magnificent canvas.

So my two girlfriends and I agreed that this Chinese Golden Week, we will refresh by travelling to Thailand.
After a lot of hard working, between our demanding classes we managed to save enough for the trip.

So on October 02, 2019, two of my girl friends and I left Shanghai, China were we are studying for a vacation in Thailand.
Our flight was scheduled to leave at 1345hrs but it was delayed until 1655hrs which had us land at Bangkok-Suvarnabhumi airport at 2000hrs.

I was having fun with #TwitterPhilanthropy but it's time to jump.
Ties between Pulte and Soros are confirmed and this is a huge data collection thing.
Plus Jack Dorsey owns the $CashApp -I'm sure it fits in here too…
Bill's daddy misplaced 900 million bucks.…
If #TwitterPhilanthropy was real - you could question it and see answers. Instead, Pulte gets prickly and offended and blocks people.

That should tell you something.

IBM is accused of firing older workers. This is really about money - and doesn't just apply to IBM. Many companies sneakily create practices, communications & policies (like not subsidizing family health coverage)to discourage hiring older workers.

Age discrimination is especially common in #tech, where appearing "cool" carries a premium for recruiting top grads & younger talent.

In most careers, there comes an inflection point where junior employees can do the same job (or ~80% of it) for way less.

Sadly, to companies we're no more than "human resources," so employees must make themselves indispensable, esp. as their salaries creep up.


1) Develop a unique expertise: be known for it. Could be anything from a coding language to ideas generation to great #design.
