Owned by #kings, dukes & sultans, worn by Marie Antoinette, used to pay off a royal debt – and said to carry an ancient curse. It would have to be a #diamond. But not just any diamond. It’s the Hope Diamond, and it's from Guntur in #AndhraPradesh. 1/12 Image
The Hope Diamond is the world’s largest and most legendary blue gemstone. And equally remarkable is its tale, which begins in the famed Golconda Mines in Guntur. But it began life under a different name. 2/12
#gems #minerals
The diamond was discovered by an extraordinary #French adventurer and gems merchant, Jean Baptiste Tavernier, who visited #India in the mid-17th century. It was 112 carats, the size of a grown man’s fist, and it was called Tavernier’s Blue. 3/12 Image

🍻New paper published on @BDCC_MDPI, collab. w. @mvitevit and @Fede_Botta:
Cognitive Networks Extract Insights on COVID-19 Vaccines from English and Italian Popular Tweets: Anticipation, Logistics, Conspiracy and Loss of Trust
@BDCC_MDPI @mvitevit @Fede_Botta We investigate almost 5k Popular tweets about #COVID19 and #vaccines from early 2021.
Remember when vaccines were announced?
How did massively read content frame vaccines? With which stances and emotions?
We use #cognitive networks and #machinevision to address these points!
We found #emotional #polarisation in the framing of "vaccines" in English tweets.
Emotions like trust and anticipation co-existed with negative emotions of sadness and anger.
A circumplex model corroborated this dichotomy. These emotions rose from discussions about cases/deaths:

After careful evaluation, the Kremlin is rearranging the geopolitical chessboard to end the unipolar hegemony of the “indispensable nation”.

This 12(!) car #train arrived at #budapestnyugati from #záhony at the #Ukrainian #border this afternoon, it was a special train for the #Ukrainianrefugees fleeing the #WARINUKRAINE

This is at the #keleti station in Budapest, normally this hall is completely empty, now it full with stands and people who #HelpUkrainianRefugees

If you are new to the world of online gaming it won´t be long before you begin to wonder if someone re-invented the #English #LanguageLearning while you were asleep. This is because many of the terms in the gaming world will seem like Greek to you.… There is enough of variety in the gaming world to keep all the different kinds of people that play the games happy. However, it is impossible for any person to keep abreast of all the developments in online gaming. Besides, the sheer volume of terms and definitions ensures that it is impossible for you to keep track of all of them So what is the best way out of this maze? The most obvious thing to do, of course, would be to do a little bit of research before you begin your journey into the mysterious

#ISIS #SDF #HASAKA #Syria #USA #Ghweran
Insight about the ISIS Ghweran prison break:
On January 20, 2022, ISIS launched a large-scale military operation, in terms of chosen target and the size of participating fighters, to liberate its members who were detained in Al-Sina’a Prison in the Ghweran neighborhood, south of Al-Hasakah city.
This operation is considered the most intense of its kind since the collapse of the group in Syria three years ago by coalition forces and the SDF, as the operation lasted for 7 days and resulted in many causalities.

#RSS is least of our concern when #India's #secularists are exploiting B'desh #riot to bestow legitimacy on a #fascist #colonial administration - by #Hasina.

Unlike #Kashmir, B'desh doesn't have a discourse - largely due to not having access/fluency in #English..


With no B'deshis around to resist their hegemony, the #colonizers have a free stadium to kick the ball - protraying B'deshi #Muslims as '#extremists', '#violent', '#WarCriminal' and so on.

#Riot is a football match, again producing consent for #Hasina's... 2/n.

...government in #Delhi.

A lot of '#Kashmiri scholars' (who doesn't have to face the wrath of the state) & their silence around this #Hindu-#Secularist 'saviors' axis are equally complicit.

The #colonizers are sealing our fates. 3/n.

Inga Clendinnen "Dancing with Strangers"

In this thread students @MQLinguistics read Clendinnen's historical #ethnography based on the diaries of the officers of the 1st fleet to learn about #InterculturalCommunication between British colonizers and Sydney's Indigenous people
#DancingWithStrangers is a story of confusion and ignorance of #culture #language, aspirations, traditions and #law
One of the most tragic figures is Baneelon, an Australian kidnapped by Governor Phillip and taught English in a desperate attempt to create an intermediary.
The detailed musings of the white men in #DancingWithStrangers contrast with the deafening silence of any women's voices - what did the Indigenous and colonising #women think of each other? Of the men they encountered? How different would history be if women had been in charge?

With Justin Trudeau,
thousands of people crossed the border illegally,
This system is unfair to the families who follow
the rules and waiting for their turn.

I propose a welcoming country, but respecting its borders.
All immigrants can install in Quebec,
Canada, to work, to study, or to found a family.

But legally and respectful of the laws of the country they want to integrate. Final point!

To protect our borders and end the illegal crossings,
A Conservative government will apply the Safe Third Country Agreement.
Then, in terms of the reunification of families and the integration of immigrants, a Conservative government will work with Quebec to give it more power and autonomy in immigration.

In concrete terms, we will give Quebec more powers to choose who comes to settle here.

Learning about message sticks is my favorite. When thinking about message sticks from a #literacies perspective, they seem very modern.…
It is intriguing to learn that humans weren't made to #read and that it is possible due to brain plasticity. It is also fascinating that #reading #Chinese script and alphabetic #writing activates different brains areas

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!

Early Grey Tea, can be refreshing, but, it gives me a terrible headache.
I don't know why?
Must be the oil of bergamot orange extractions added to the tea?
Compared to Earl Grey, the Lady Grey Tea, which is the Russian Version of this condiment mixed with black tea, can bring on more complex flavours.
Tea Tasting is very much like Wine or Tobacco Tasting.
You require special training and skills.
It is a highly-priced niche profession.
