#Demystefying #EIANotification
Part III (PROCESS)
Today we consider the very 'soul' of d legal instrument called #EIANotification namely d #EIA #Report
An EIA Report is meant to be a thorough scientific document that a professional agency prepares after detailed investigations+
of d likely environmental impacts that d planned project / activity is anticipated to hv at d #site in #question.

Its (#EIA #report) quality wud depend on:
a) Competence of d agency involved
b) Independence of d agency
c) Transparency & inclusive nature of d exercise
The reality of an #EIA #report is that:

Right from #EIA1994Notification to #EIA2006 & now #DraftEIA2020 d #notification provides that it is d #ProjectProponent (PP) that shall #select & #commission the #EIAconsultant at its own cost & terms.

This provision alone+

Hi #twitterstorians this is part 3 of our thread on #Srinivas work. We focus on his views on #anthropology as a discipline linked to the nation. If you would like to see more about #Srinivas writings you can check our blog on #rememberedvillage 👇
theotherfromwithin.com/post/the-remem…
#Srinivas considered that #anthropology was a #colonial tool of governance that used used to 'divide and rule'. His views on the #census as a political tool anticipated the views of scholars such as #Cohn and #Dirks
However, for #Srinivas this was a doubled edged sword. Indian nationalists used the categories politicized by colonial rulers to 'discover' India's past and to create myths in the struggle for #independence

Dear diary,
I know no matter what, I must put my feelings aside and never be aggressive to a person. It's part of being a service dog.
But right now I wish I was allowed to take a big crap on the steps of the #AlbertaLegislature to show my disgust. The humans ... 1/9
that have the privilege to represent #Alberta citizens are preaching #inclusion and promising to tear down #barriers and tackle systemic #discrimination are the same people that let my mistress slip through the cracks and are why we live in nearly complete #segregation from...2/9
our community. They claim to promote #inclusion and #independence of the disabled with their tax payer funded program to provide essential #mobility equipment, like the power wheelchair my mistress needs so we can leave our home without human assistance. More than a year...3/9

In her Hogmanay speech @NicolaSturgeon stated: "We will provide support and reassurance for the #EUcitizens who have done us the honour of choosing to make #Scotland their home."

Here is how we can begin to constructively fulfill that promise: docs.google.com/document/d/1rG…
1. EU citizens will face discrimination by Brexit/HostileEnv design. Those who have Settled Status need a physical token not offered by the Home Office but any individuals status can be checked online - including by @scotgov who should issue a #ScottishResidencyCard open to all.
2. All residents of #Scotland are equally affected by Scots Law, yet not all are protected by it. For 2020 I hope to see an all-party, multi-disciplinary Equality workgroup at the Scottish parliament finding & using Scots law & powers to enhance equality and protect all Scots.

December 31. Time for my best productions in 2019 in English. 12 tweets with 12 articles. One for each month of the past year. Check it out. Thread 🧐🤓👇
January. "The European Union is more united than ever". Cited by @guyverhofstadt among others. elpais.com/elpais/2019/01…
@guyverhofstadt February. Nothing relevant in English. But don't worry. I will have a month with two relevant articles. Keep reading. ☺️

The Home Office yesterday said that 2million of the (HO guesstimate) 3.3million #EUcitizens in the UK have now applied for Settled Status. Digging into those statistics in regards to #Scotland - bearing in mind there are no reliable UK immigration stats - reveals the following:
Going by 2017 NRS data there were 239,000 🇪🇺 #NewScots in Scotland. Subtracting the 21,000 Irish-born EU nationals (whose residency rights aren't depending on EU citizenship = No need for SS applications) that leaves us with 218,000 #NewScots required to apply for Settled Status.
Previous to @patel4witham "FoM will end on October 31st" misleading dogwhistling exercise only ONE in five 🇪🇺#NewScots had applied for Settled Status (despite ~ £5 @scotgov spend per head on access to SS info). Contrast this with 1 in 3 for rUK (with only ~£3 pp UKgov spend).

The recognition of the political nature of health & appreciation of the political determinants of health are key to better understanding despair & health inequality, as well as our shared responsibility to ensure the conditions under which people can enjoy hope & health equity. Image
The decline in life expectancy is occurring in part due to deaths from despair. From 2007 - 2017, the mortality rate from drug overdoses increased 82% while suicide rates increased 24%.

Many problems associated with poor health stem from lower incomes.
Image
“...it is essential to rethink the hegemonic discourse of the right to health so that it becomes a first-class human right intrinsically coupled to the other social, political and economic rights.”

A short positive thread on #CitizensAssemblies 👇
I’ve put a lot of effort into arguing the case for a #CitizensAssembly in Scotland & I’m totally committed to having a gold standard process
I stand by my comments that the #CitizensAssembly is a good way forward for Scotland in the #Brexit crisis. I see the ultimate destination as #independence. Others disagree. That’s the joy of democracy

THREAD FOR #JULY4th   and DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE
Here's the real story of the Declaration of Independence:
For 17 days, the thirty-three-year-old secluded himself in a rented room in Philadelphia.
On a small, portable desk, he began writing, laying the foundations of this new American government. Unlike every nation before it, this country’s heart would not beat with the blood of royal lines. This would be a nation based on ideals.
It took Thomas Jefferson seventeen days to find the right words. Seventeen days of writing and rewriting before he nervously presented his document to John Adams and Benjamin Franklin.

We as #Americans are facing down a terrible and destructive enemy. An enemy that knows no bounds, plays by no rules and is concerned only with driving a wedge into the staggering partisan divide in the #USA
That enemy is the @GOP @TheDemocrats #Republicrat #Duopoly
'But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. '
#Republicrats
The yoke our founding fathers threw off was I do believe a lighter yoke than we Americans bear today. It was for all its weight a yoke forced upon them. Today we bear a yoke we have been manipulated into volunteering for.

I’ve hit back at smear campaign against me calling for unity behind the #independence cause & an end to @theSNP infighting. The timetable for #indyref2 has been announced, our restiveness is at an end, with unity & civility we will win thenational.scot/news/17634132.…
The problem is that from the moment the first parliamentarian complained against was hung out to dry a signal was given to those with petty motivations that if you seek to smear an @theSNP MP or MSP the party won’t get behind them, even if they are exonerated
Its important that @theSNP elected representatives are not drawn into trashing our members and supporters who work so hard for the cause. The so-called ‘War on Cybernats’ last weekend was unnecessary and has really upset our core support

Thread👇. There’ve been a lot of misleading comparisons between #Brexit & Scottish #Independence recently. Here’s @ScotNational summary from @KirstyS_Hughes @SCER_eu of her scholarly analysis which puts the record straight #indyref2 thenational.scot/news/17454108.…
“With #Brexit we already see a chaotic, divided politics facing stalemate in the Commons, that some suggest starts to look like a failed state. It’s not obvious that such a political dynamic would be replicated on #independence@KirstyS_Hughes
“Scotland, if independent, would gain many more powers for the ...Scottish Parliament, compared to the current range of devolved powers. And as an EU member state, it would have a democratic say at the EU council of ministers that it doesn’t currently have”

"Catalonia and the trial on the referendum: a challenge for the EU". Conferència conjunta amb el president @QuimTorraiPla a Brussel·les

#CatalanEU
Last Tuesday, a political trial against members of the previous @govern, against social leaders of the main civil organizations of #Catalonia and against the former president of the @parlamentcat began in Spain #CatalanEU
The simple fact that this trial could take place brings #ShametoSpain and, therefore, to the entire #EuropeanUnion, whose main institutions have chosen to remain silent, when facing such a disgraceful situation where democracy is at stake #CatalanEU

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.

Today we release our annual @wiiw_news Autumn #Forecast Report, with macroeconomic projections for #CESEE out to 2020. Below, a thread on the highlights 1/13
#Growth still looks quite good for most, notable upgrades this time for #Poland, #Serbia, #Hungary. But downgrades for several #EU members, plus #Turkey, #Macedonia and #Belarus. 2/13
Over the #forecast period we expect best growth performance in #EUCEE and #WesternBalkans, although both will slow by 2020. Outlook for #CIS & #Ukraine weaker. 3/13
