No último #LesteOeste, na @SICNoticias, o @nrogeiro partilhou 4 fotos, uma das quais descreveu como sendo um dos barcos pneumáticos interceptados recentemente no norte de Moçambique, o que veio a comprovar-se ser errado. 1/

Aqui, a partir dos 13m20s: “…Temos aqui o bote, o bote está ali à esquerda com um círculo em que se vê um homem em camuflado, ele foi interceptado por este navio moçambicano que aparece em baixo…”… 2/
O ‘homem em camuflado’ é certamente um elemento da guarda costeira líbia (de uma das milícias que à data desempenhavam esse papel) numa intercepção ocorrida em 2014, sendo a outra foto de um resgate no mesmo local/ano, como já #verificado aqui: 3/

.@MichelleObama, on Americans: “They watch in horror as children are torn from their families and thrown into cages."

THE FACTS (AGAIN): The reference to cages is misleading and a matter that Democrats have persistently distorted. Image
Trump used facilities that were built during the Obama-Biden administration to house children at the border. They are chain-link enclosures inside border facilities where migrants were temporarily housed, separated by sex and age. Image
Prominent Democrats have continued to cite cages for children as a distinctive cruelty of Trump. @AP #FactCheck Image

@marcorubio No. A brilliant move is trying to demean actors & celebrities whilst overlooking the obvious fact that Donald Trump is an actor & celebrity.

Your boy Donald has 921 Film & TV credits (almost THREE times Eva Longoria’s career total).
@marcorubio #HOLLYWOOD #FactCheck

Donald Trump found success pretending to be a successful business man on a TV show called #TheApprentice.

He and his associates are showbiz people.

Gira video postato dalla specialista in fake sui #migranti in cui sostiene che i cittadini di #Lampedusa monitorano il mare per impedire gli sbarchi. In realtà da una barca non fanno altro che gridare "alt" mentre quelli proseguono 👇🏽
Il video non mostra lo sbarco che nessuno ha potuto impedire perché la barca con i migranti era già oramai a pochi metti dalla costa . E perché nessuno può impedire ad una barca carica di persone di entrare a meno che non gli sparino addosso finendo incriminato per omicidio. 👇🏽
Dalla barca dei sedicenti cittadini lampedusani impossibilitati da qualsiasi legge a fermare quei poveracci si sente urlare "chiamate i carabinieri". I quali nient'altro potranno fare se non prendere atto che c'e un altro sbarco e portare i migranti in hotspot. Come sempre 👇🏽

Thread | #BEEF it OR not
Man used to eat meat, before 10000 BCE, however, as Man started Grains cultivation in Indian History, their preference on meat as food decreased. And virtually it was NIL till ~1500 AD
Let us see how it evolved through antiquity

TEETH are first indicators of whether an animal is #HERBIVOROUS or #CARNIVOROUS
Look at the teeth sets of a human dating BCE 7000, They were NOT meat-eaters.
A study conducted on Jaws from Upper Palaeolithic to Bronze Age shows that dental (crown) dimensions and mandibular dimensions between HUNTERS & FARMERS shifted to sedentism & agricultural subsistence thousands yrs ago.…

This is my point by point rebuttal to Taapsee Pannu's recent "befitting reply" to #KanganaRanaut :

1. Taapsee claims that Kangana has made "mockery out of outsiders" How? By fighting against the malpractices, bullying and abuse that outsiders have been facing for years? 1/11
@taapsee She was the one who raised the nepotism issue, that too on Karan Johar's own show! Did you support her when she raised that issue? The answer is a resounding NO. Rather you belittled her as someone who is just using Nepotism as an excuse to justify lack of work. 2/11
Now tell me who is the real "bully" and "harasser"?? Who is the one making a "mockery of outsiders"?? You talked about being "logical" but I fail to see even an iota of logic in your statements! 3/11

Helaas wordt er op sociale media veel onzin en mythes verspreid. Onderstaande is daar een voorbeeld van. Mocht u deze beweringen tegenkomen en zich afvragen waar het over gaat, bij deze de #factcheck:
Het bewuste debat in @DeBalie ging NIET over "de uitzetting van moslims". Het onderwerp was een boek dat door een verzameling auteurs was geschreven en ging over de beweegredenen en achterliggende sentimenten van jihadisten en ander religieus tuig dat zich op grond van die ...
... opvattingen gerechtvaardigd voelde om aanslagen en andere misdaden te plegen. In het boek trachtten de auteurs om, op hun eigen manier, antwoord te geven op de vraag "Waarom haten ze ons eigenlijk?", wat eveneens de titel van het boek was.

The religious aspects of societies, including Indonesian, is often exploited for false information. NO, the call for prayer is NOT related to the black cloud in the video: #FactCheck #DigitalLiteracy (1/2)
Aspek-aspek relijius dari masyarakat, termasuk masyarakat Indonesia, sering dieksploitasi untuk informasi salah. TIDAK, Adzan TIDAK ada kaitannya dengan awan hitam di video ini: #FactCheck #DigitalLiteracy (2/2)
Not just religious belief, superstition belief is also exploitable. For Indonesian, a fireball falling from the sky is traditionally believed as a sign that something big is about to happen.

The claim that Tolkien's Ruling Ring was inspired by a ring at the Vyne in Hampshire and a curse-inscription at Lydney in Gloucestershire is doing the rounds yet again. It's tenuous, as I argue in THE WORLDS OF JRR TOLKIEN. Here's why…
#Tolkien #FactCheck
Tolkien wrote a paper for the 1932 report on REM Wheeler’s excavations of Romano-British remains at Lydney, Gloucestershire. But Tolkien only dealt with one aspect of the curse tablet there, the divine name Nodens (on which he mostly summarises existing knowledge)…
His paper shows no sign that he considered the content of the tablets, and makes no reference to the curse or to the ring mentioned in it…

I simply don't get it. How is tweeting "when the looting starts, shooting starts" promoting violence compared to people coming out saying "shoot the white folks" or promoting death to the president? Contrary to what Biden said I'm black and support @Donald
