"The 25 points of the NSDAP Program were composed by Adolf Hitler and Anton Drexler. They were publically presented on 24 February 1920 "to a crowd of almost 2K and every single point was accepted amid jubilant approval." (Mein Kampf, Volume II, Chapter I)

This week, House and Senate Democrats are unveiling two bold, ambitious, new planks of our A Better Deal agenda: A Better Deal for Our Teachers and Students, and A Better Deal for Our Democracy.1 #ABetterDeal#BlueWave2018#DemPartyPlatform
Education is the catalyst for economic mobility, and the engine of progress in our nation. Yet, America’s teachers are underpaid, our schools are underfunded and our children are too often denied the good, public education they need to succeed. 2 #ABetterDeal#Education

"One could not understand this #war if one did not always keep in mind the fact that International J//ewry stands behind all the unnatural forces that our united enemies use to attempt to deceive the world and keep humanity in the dark.
"It is, so to speak, the mortar that holds the enemy coalition firmly together, despite its differences of class, ideology, and interests.

When you voted to trigger A50
you knew that regulatory alignment would be required for
Northern Ireland, as highlighted by the phase 1 report from 2017,
requiring both the SM & CU.
Does it not make sense to stay in the CU & SM?
Monday, first topic: the journey to #scicomm.
There are plenty of ways to be involved in scicomm, as shown by the variety of hosts for this account.
I’ll discuss how I went from research to #scicomm, but I am curious about you.
What is your primary occupation?
If #scicomm is your primary occupation, which background do you have ?
If research is your primary occupation, what kind of #scicomm/outreach are you mostly involved in?
I just wrote a letter to my congressmen using Democracy.io
It's interesting that the Democrat had the choice of using #GunControl for a topic.
For the two Republicans who pretend to represent me, I had to use #education as #GunReform wasn't an option.
1. My letter started with:
Even Justice Scalia agreed that the 2nd Amendment does not extend to military weapons in the hands of civilians. More guns in schools just means more shootings and more deaths.
2. I continued with:
For this reason, should it come to pass that guns will be put in schools, I will tender my resignation as a public school teacher in the state of Florida. A teacher in Parkland gave his life protecting his students. #WeChoose #NeverAgain
Went to Azraq Refugee Camp in Jordan today. Official population at 53,967, according to @UNHCR as of February 2018. All Syrian #refugees.
In many ways it was not what I expected.
First thing you notice is how remote the location is — some 100 kms east of Amman; 20 kms from Azraq town; 75 kms to Saudi Arabia; 255 kms to Iraq; and 90 kms to the Syrian border — from which its inhabitants fled.
At the same time, the harshness of the setting — a hardscrabble, sprawling 15 square km patch, scratched, etched and stretched out of endless rolling desert.
The perimeter was equally formidable, with security fencing, official patrols, check points and razor wire.
Thread on the current situation in #Raqqa city, Syria 👇👇
Improvised explosive devices are littered across the city and surrounding neighbourhoods. In the first week of 2018, our teams in #Syria treated 33 patients with blast injuries from Raqqa. 13 of the 33 patients MSF treated were children.
Since the active conflict subsided in Raqqa on October 17th 2017, our teams have received 271 people with blast Injuries, 64 were already dead or dying on arrival at our clinic doors.
1/ Manu (The progenitor of Humankind)
All different races of Mankind are derived from Manu and Shradha. The current Manu is Vaivasvata Manu.
2/ The word Manu literary means man but it is a title given to the progenitor of mankind. According to Hindu Puranas there are many kalpas (One day of Lord Brahma the creator) and each Kalpa has 14 manvantara and each manvatara has one manu. So basically each Kalpa has 14 Manus.
3/ The current manu of the present manvantara is Shraddhadeva or Vaivasvata Manu of this current Kalpa. He is the son of Vivasvat (Probably Surya) and is therefore also known as Manu-vaivasvata.
In 1986, the largest group of workers was in occupations classified as skill lvl 4 (roughly equivalent to a certificate II or III). Nowadays, the largest group of workers is in the highest (skill level 1) category - occupations requiring a bachelor degree/higher qualification.
Despite all the hype about #STEM skills, occupations requiring communication skills are actually growing fastest.
