Growth rate is key during a disease outbreak. The rate of growth in the the total confirmed #cases in #Canada seems to be showing signs of slowing and pulling away from the continued steep trend line seen, for example, in the United States (Green). #COVID19 #coronavirus 1/25
This is a +ve sign, but still very early to tell, esp. with an est. 1M+ #Canadians having just returned from travel, and #COVID-19 #testing only targeting >severe cases (due to rationing & backlog in lab testing), we don’t have a good grasp on the level of community spread. 2/25
The number of total cases is what we want to know, but the true number of these is not known. Not by us epidemiologists, nor by any other research, governmental or reporting institution. 3/25

On the anniversary of #27FebSupriseDay when #PAF conducted a daring counter attack on #India with #OpSwiftRetort bombing them, shooting 2 #IAF jets & capturing #Abhinandan.

Let’s look at a hidden weapon of #PAF:
Saab 2000 Erieye AEW&C Aircraft

#HappySurpriseDayIndia
/1
#Indians were extremely scared of this weapon being in the use of a highly professional #PAF & desperately protested with Sweden not to sell.

But #Sweden still sold 6 of SAAB-2000 Airborne Early Warning Control Aircrafts to #Pakistan, 5 with AEW&C systems & 1 as transport.

/2
#Pakistan became 1st customer in the world, with option to purchase 6 S-2000 aircraft with ERIEYE AEW&C, but due to #Kashmir earthquake we reduced order to 4.

When #PAF inducted 4 S-2000s ERIEYE AEW&Cs in 2009, #India sponsored #TTP terrorists to attack #Kamra Base in 2012.

#MythBuster - A thread - Yesterday, when markets were up and are up today, have seen numerous messages as to how #LIC has been put to work to prop up the markets and also how #LIC Ipo is a risk as their investments need to be sold or they will have to be independent ...
Lets take it through the numbers as to how relevance of #LIC in the #Equity Markets has detoriated. 1) #LIC puts in a net of 50-60k crores a year on an average. #MutualFunds in last few months hold 25-40k crores of cash and 8000 crores of monthly inflow through #SIP.
2) Total Value of #MutualFunds in #Equity has surpassed #LIC value quite some time back. 3) #SIP at almost 90-100k crore is double the money #LIC can deploy. 4) #EPFO averages 25000-30000 cr will soon cross #LIC. Thanks to it #SBI Nifty 50 ETF is now 66000 cr and largest #MF sch

Why #AshrafGhani undermined #TUTAP's protest and Appreciates #PTM

#TUTAP project was proposed by #ADB (Asian Development Bank) in #Karzai's tenure. As per this project, 500-KV would be supplied to #Afghanistan and #Pakistan considering the power crisis in the region.

Majeed Ullah Khan (@MBTparty President) Statement on #SupremeCourt Refusing Interim Stay on #CAA; Challenges @AmitShah to Visit Ongoing #ShaheenBaghProtests to Face Public Instead of TV Debates. #CAA_NRC_Protests Read Full: tl.gd/n_1sr4hba /1
He contended that #ConstitutionofIndia is “Common Sense” codified. It's clear that #CitizenshipAmendmentAct goes against numerous Articles. It's appalling that Court deferred hearings in refusal to put interim stay on draconian #CAA and modified #NationalPopulationRegister /2
People’s trust in a truly secular, non-partisan #SupremeCourt is wavering. Moreover, refusal on interim #CAA stay has common public concerned regarding growing, free reign of a bigoted, right-wing #RSS-#BJP specter looming over nation that we continue to battle on all fronts. /3

#CAA_NRC_Protests shows #India needs urgent educational reform

Riots started in Assam. 84% of colleges in Assam are govt funded compared to 37% national average. Coincidence?

In the UK, undergraduates studying non-medical, science and engineering based subjects receive NO govt funding

In #India, all subjects are massively subsidised, including those inciting the anti-Hindu, pro-Muslim and Marxist ideologies causing #indiaagainstcaa_nrc

In #India, 22% of undergraduate students are publicly funded arts, humanities and social science students

Social science is most popular postgraduate subject and it accounts for 36% of Indian PhDs

What kind of logic is this? Someone tell the #Indian Minister of External Affairs that #Kashmiris dont need an incentivization to protest. Indias brutal occupation is reason enough. thewire.in/external-affai…
The truth is that Jaishankar is grabbing at straws. He might be losing his job soon b/c the international community is not buying Indias propaganda. Foreign journalists arent being allowed because #India does not want the international community to see what its doing in #Kashmir
#Indians civil society has published a number of fact finding reports. Where was the incentivization then? And foreign journalists and human rights observers dont have to come in on an elephant; they can go in and out without much fanfare if #India is so concerned

Heres Aharon Almog-Assoulin, a retired Israeli security official who until recently served on the town council in a suburb of #TelAviv. He was one of the undercover agents used by #BlackCube hired by #NSOGroup to #spy on #CitizenLab journalists exposing #Pegasus among other jobs.
Heres a partial list of #cybersecurity firms linked directly to #cyber weapons dealer #NSOGroup that targeted Indian journalists and activists using #Pegasus. Almost all of them spawned out of Israeli intelligence #Unit8200. #WhatsApp #WhatsAppSpywareRow
Acc to 2016 price list, #NSOGroup charges customers $650,000 to hack 10 devices on top of $500,000 installation fee. If 41 Indians were targeted it will be 4 times the fee + installation. That comes to a whopping 31,00,000 USD equals 21,96,80,725.00 INR. Thanks to @Kodungolan737

Children's books are magically informative ! @Scholastic's #HorribleHistorySeries carries my strong recommendation, age no bar. For sheer joy of learning new facts, I start #ThreadHorribleHistory. Kindly expect Stone age, Greeks, Romans, WW history.

Joy, not politics please ? 🙏
This tweet will lead to different verticals. Each vertical will be about a different culture/event that a normal #Indian doesn't know much about. Sole intention is to spread knowledge. 🙏

The plan to invade the Riyasat of #JammuAndKashmir wasn't born in #Lahore but in the residence of #Jinnah at #Aurangzeb road #NewDelhi . Here in the spring of 1947 Col. Akbar Khan & some #Muslim officers of the #British #Indian #Army hatched this plot .

It was only in October 1947 that Maj. Onkar Singh Kalkat of the Bannu Brigade #PakistanArmy who had not yet been repatriated to #India found files marked Operation Gulmarg Secret while looking for some other documents in the office of Brigadier Murray at NWFP.
Even though he was nearly arrested & sent to #Lahore , Maj.Onkar somehow made it out to #NewDelhi & told the #IndianArmy top brass about the file he had sern which detailed an invasion of #JammuKashmir by tribesmen. He wasn't taken seriously by the Brass .
