@le_mmonnier Mais de quoi parlez-vous ? C’est un fait historique parfaitement documenté ! Lorsque le programme Messmer est lancé en 1974, la CFDT se structure autour des mouvements alternatifs et antinucléaires, à l’inverse de la CGT (cf. l’historien de l’énergie Yves Bouvier. À la recherche
@le_mmonnier d’alliés en 1979, François Mitterrand s’en rapproche. Bernard Laponche, architecte de la ligne antiatome de la CFDT, rejoint sa campagne et vivra comme une « trahison », dira-t-il, la mise à l’écart des antinucléaires après l’élection. 
Pour consoler ses soutiens, Mitterrand crée
@le_mmonnier l’Agence française pour la maîtrise de l’énergie (AFME) – rassemblant notamment l’Agence pour les économies d’énergie et le Commissariat à l’énergie solaire – et la dote de moyens importants pour réfléchir à un nouveau modèle de société, basé sur la sobriété… Bernard Laponche

Here's wishing Happy #WalongDay to the heroes of 6 KUMAON.
They went to their deaths heroically & steadfastly, without any fuss, this day in 1962.
Just so that a General could please a PM on his birthday.
This day in 1962 - The only attack of the war by Indian army was launched - As a birthday gift from a General to a PM.
A heavy price was paid by the Kumaonis of 6 Kumaon that night.
Denied even one day to prepare for the attack, they went in as ordered.
Out of the over 200 men that had gone into the attack, only 90 returned.

First, and possibly most significantly, is @NHSEngland officials' confirmation that its '#FederatedDataPlatform' will incorporate patients across England's #SharedCareRecords: Health officials confirmed ...

This is the cutest most captivating thread you will come across on Twitter, today!
@shrewlovestea brings you the lesser known Cat Facts. :)

#pets #trivia #Facts #CatsOfTwitter
#Fact 1
It is thought that the ancient Egyptians first domesticated cats, the oldest known pet cat was found in a 9,500-yr-old grave on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. The grave predates early Egyptian art depicting cats by 4,000+ yrs.
Cats domesticated humans, I guess.
#Fact 2
During the time of the Spanish Inquisition, Pope Innocent VIII condemned cats as evil and thousands of cats were burned. Well, the widespread killing of cats led to an explosion of the rat population, which exacerbated the effects of the Black Death.

Clausewitz said, in his famous work “On War” (as often cited as it is little read), that war is the continuation of diplomacy by other means, well it says a lot more things, but i will keep just a few as i do not wanna write too long.
In his chapter 1, Clausewitz refers that "war constitutes... an act of force that is carried out to force the adversary to comply with our will." War, therefore, is a duel of wills, which, in itself, is not enough, since wanting is one thing and power is another.
Does not intervene who wants but who can, as it is said in #InternationalLaw

To impose our will, we need resources, in an amount that exceeds what our adversary can muster, first of all energy.

#TCHAD - Qui sont les absents du Dialogue National Inclusif & Souverain? #DNIS

Suite à l'accord de paix signé le 8 août à #Doha entre le Conseil Militaire de Transition (CMT) et ≈ 40 groupes politico-militaires, le DNIS a débuté avec beaucoup de chaises vides.

Pourquoi ? 🧵👇
Le #DNIS a commencé le 20 août à N'Djamena.

Environ 1400 délégués ont pour mission la reconstitution du paysage politique tchadien.

⚠️ Fait important, le DNIS est souverain et ses résolutions sont exécutoires.…
Dès l’ouverture du #DNIS, les travaux ont été suspendus afin de convaincre les absents de rejoindre les débats, sous l’impulsion de @parfait_onanga, @AUC_MoussaFaki et @Macky_Sall.

Mais qui sont les absents ?…

کون سے محلے سے؟
ہمارا یا @ShamaJunejo کا تعلق مصطفی ٹاورز سے تو نہیں
ویسے دیکھ کر خوشی ہوتی ہے کہ آپ اور صدیق جان میں صلح ہو گئی
اُس نے تو آپ کے سپر سپلائیر ​والی بات واپس نہیں لی، نہ ہی آپ کی شادی کا سیاق و سباق بدلا
یقیناً آپ ہی نے دل بڑا کیا

ہم تو مانتے ہیں کہ آپ کام خود کرتی ہیں
جو کام آپ کرتی ہیں وہ کیا بھی خود ہی جا سکتا ہے 🤷🏻‍♀️
ہاں چھاپے کا ڈر ضرور ہوتا ہے
مگر آپ کے کیس میں تو وہ چھاپہ بھی خوش قسمتی کی دستک ہی ثابت ہوا
اُس بھگوڑے کو آپ کو اپنانا تو پڑا کہتے ہیں نا قسمت اپنی اپنی نصیب اپنا اپنا /2
ہاں صحافت آپ کے بس کی بات نہیں کیونکہ اُس کے لیے تو دماغ لگانا پڑتا ہے
محنت کرنی پڑتی ہے
جو آپ کے حال احوال سے واضع ہے کہ آپ کے بس کی بات نہیں ✅
آپ کے بس میں جو تھا وہ آپ نے درجہ کمال کو جا کر کیا
اب اُسی کا پھل کھائیں
مشترکہ شوہر آپ کے لیے کافی ہے

بہن @MaheenFaisal20 بے شک آپ غیر ملکیوں کو False Information سے گمراہ کرنا اور بے وقوف بنانا جانتی ہیں لیکن ایک بات یقینی ہے کہ آپ کبھی بھی اچھی وکیل نہیں بن سکیں گی کیونکہ قانونی طور پر عدالت میں کسی کو سزا دینے کے لیے خالی الفاظ اور Fake Patriotic Emotional Drama کافی نہیں /2

جناب مولانا فضل الرحمٰن @MoulanaOfficial کے خلاف کوئی Criminal یا Corruption کا مقدمہ نہ ماضی میں تھا اور نہ ہی موجودہ وقت میں ہے #Fact
لیکن نااہل نیازی عرف خان @ImranKhanPTI پر لامحدود مقدمات ہیں 🥱 یقین کریں وہ ان سے خود کو کبھی بھی بچا نہیں سکے گا کیونکہ /1
یہ تمام مقدمات سیاسی یا ذاتی سازش کی وجہ سے نہیں بلکہ اس لیے ہیں کیونکہ نیازی نے نہ صرف پاکستان اور پاکستان کے اندر اور باہر رہنے والے پاکستانیوں کو دھوکہ دیا بلکہ اس نے پاکستان کو ایسا نقصان پہنچایا جس کی ہمت کوئی اور نہیں کر سکتا تھا اور یہ ناقابل معافی جرم ہے /2

The European Council looks set to breach its treaty obligations. On 9 June @Europarl_EN made a formal proposal to revise Article 48(7) TEU so that the famous ‘passerelle’ clause will in future be triggered by QMV not unanimity. 1/…
Everyone knows that the best way to have more voting and less vetoing in the Council is through use of the passerelle. Indeed, this is openly admitted by the Council in its reaction to the conclusions of the #CoFoE… 2/
What the Council don’t say is that because of the national veto the existing passerelle clause is inoperable.
Under Article 48(3) #EUCO must now decide whether to examine Parliament’s proposal. That decision is taken by simple majority. What the leaders cannot do is nothing. 3/

🧵No, #fact-checking or #debunking is NOT enough to combat online misinformation - #fakenews can continue to influence reasoning and beliefs, even after it has been retracted/corrected. (1/7)
🧵Originating in the 60’s as a “vaccine for brainwash”, inoculation theory offers a logical basis for developing a psychological “#vaccine” against misinformation. (2/7)

Finally, the #GoldacreReview is published! (During Parliamentary Easter holidays, mid-ping-pong on the #HealthAndCareBill...)

It's 221 pages - each PDF page is a double page spread - so this could be a lo-o-o-ong [Thread].

Here goes...
First point to note, in the Terms of Reference (p5), is that this is about "access to #NHSdata by #researchers, #commissioners, and #innovators" - i.e. #Planning and #CommercialReUse - so it is directly relevant to the operation of millions of people's #NationalDataOptOuts...

So today I learnt Shias make the call for Azan a couple of minutes later than Sunni mosques & that is why we have recently begun to hear the call for prayer 10 times a day in our locality.
Now of course with Ramzan, we have a special hooter that goes off at 4.42 am & 6.40 pm - 2mins before the actual call…

With 3 Sunni mosques & 1 recent Shia mosque in the vicinity we are subjected to 365x10 Azans… each one competing to be louder.
Our little street dog, Lalli through her 12yrs would wail along side at least 5 times a day setting off the dogs in our homes into a right royal cacophony.

We then realised there was a particular base sound they reacted to & we neighbours joked that to get undisturbed sleep we

When there is one word I dislike in Russian, a language I have studied for 10 years and that I love, it is "naš" (наш), meaning "our". In everyday language use, anything Russian will be called "наш". I have spent years explaining this was banal nationalism, and here we go:

To all my "OG" readers:

Let's take a step back in time to 1996.

I sit across from Rob T. Lee on the 609th Information Warfare Squadron operations floor. He's my crew commander; I'm his crew chief.

Lee knows I run "the Computer Virus Myths home page," which has grown so...
...popular that it's eating up all my free time. In December of that year the Ziff-Davis publishing empire will crown CVMhp "the world's #1 most useful website."

Trivia: Lee corrected a web page I wrote where I talked about Start Trek spaceship orbits!
Fact: Lee's career path toward AFOSI began when I formulated a plan to "lateral move" him off the ops floor. Trivia: I *almost* finagled DoD to attend the FOR508 class he authored with him on podium!

What I'm saying is, Lee & I have a career-long history:

Look around you.

The once-invincible citadels are crumbling.
People who thrived & prospered behind those thick, impregnable walls seem nervous.
Almost fearful that the boundaries they had carved, the exclusive clubs they had maintained, will now be overrun by different ideas,
thoughts, ideologies…

With little or no infusion of new blood in our arts,
literature, history, education, culture, publishing, films, politics have been reduced to mediocrity. Manned by zealous gatekeepers drunk on power & arrogance.
Nevertheless, new, brave names are now coming forth.
From quiet insistence to a suppressed roar they have begun rattling the iron gates of many a citadel.

It is a fact that since time immemorial, every civilisation & society has pushed for churn & renewal …or perished.
