In developed #countries, #government policies to restrict private behavior in response to #COVID-19 have had no effect in reducing #deaths at all. Excess all-cause mortality is actually associated, though insignificantly, with increasing restrictiveness.
In developed #countries, #deaths caused by #COVID-19 have had no — zero – correlation with #government policies of increasing restrictiveness such as #lockdowns.
Given the statistical #evidence, it is reasonable to infer, in the absence of contrary statistical evidence, that increasing restrictiveness does not decrease mortality. Any assumption or assertion that it does is not following the #science – and #ScienceMatters.

हनुमान माकड होते का?
जर मी म्हणालो ते माकड नसून महापुरुष होते तर मानाल का? कदाचित नाहीच. आम्ही टीव्हीवर रामायणात पाहिलं हनुमान हे माकड होते, त्यांची मंदिर आहेत. मीच मूर्ख असेल असं म्हणतोय.

पण मी जर म्हटलं की स्वतः "महर्षि वाल्मिकी" यांनी हे सांगितलं तर? थोडा विचार कराल?
1/N
जर मी सांगितलं की हे मी नाही तर आपले आराध्य दैवत "परमपूजनीय मर्यादापुरुषोत्तम प्रभू श्री राम" यांनी स्वतः "वाल्मिकी रामायण" मध्ये हे सांगितले तर??

नाही मला कुणाच्या ही भावना दुखवायच्या नाहीत. मला प्रभू श्री राम यांचे परम भक्त असणारे श्री हनुमान यांना स्वतः "श्री राम" यांनी
2/N
जसे पाहिले त्यांनी जसे अनुभवले तेच सांगायचे आहे.
प्रभु श्री राम यांचे शब्द आणि आपला तर्क. श्री हनुमान हे माकड होते का तुम्हीच ठरवा. मी तरी रामांच्या शब्दा बाहेर नाही जाणार. हनुमान माकड नव्हते हे स्वतः श्री राम आणि हनुमान देखील सांगतात
त्याआधी वानर म्हणजे काय आणि अर्थ काय

Hey you Linguists -
If you are spending a large chunk of your time involved in
the language wars on Twitter - this article is for you!

Look what i found - A very interesting article on the evolution of South Indian languages.

#language #linguist
In the research titled
"A Bayesian phylogenetic study of the Dravidian language family"
- researchers have tried to date the language using Bayesian analysis .
For those of you not aware - method of statistical inference in which Bayes' theorem is used to update
the probability for a hypothesis as more evidence or information becomes available.
It combines prior existing info with evidence from info in a sample to guide the statistical inference.

The study has some shortcomings
They have used the Swadesh 100 list

The last #freespeech before the seizure of power by the #Nazis at the Reichstag meeting on 23 March 1933 in the #Berlin Krolloper of the SPD member Otto Wels (@spdbt):
"We are defenseless, but defenseless is not dishonorable. Of course, the opponents want us to honor, there is no doubt about that. But that this attempt at divorce will fall back on the authors themselves, because it is not our honor that is destroyed in this world tragedy,
that is our faith to the last breath. Freedom and life can be taken from us - not the honor!"

I have been thinking quite a bit about the issues raised by the BMJ article below (& others) and the language of #commercialdeterminantsofhealth or #CDoH
It is so important that #socialscientists , including #anthropologists participate in these conversations
It is so important that we think about the role of #industry interests in shaping #health & #socialscientists can help frame these conversations in broader terms

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.

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.
