"What's the motivation of this paper? We've seen in most of these locations that there was an #emergence of some form of hierarchical #government [correlated with] a monopoly of #violence and increased #inequality [and] most people lost."

🧵We found that content discussing “Ukraine” and “Nazi” surged as the 2014 Kremlin-orchestrated plans faltered and again as Russia invaded in 2022.

Our paper is out!
Current #adaptation projects do not automatically enhance #gender equality | need to be intentionally brought in at planning & implementation stages.

Delighted to have brainstormed👇figure with @Joyashree9
Embedding gender considerations and facilitating #women’s participation in project design and implementation along with #inclusive #policies, training, information access, planning, and monitoring is needed
Additional course correction for #SDG5 is needed.
Our #SDG5plus (SDG5+) approach takes into consideration #intersectionality and gender aspects beyond #women alone, & can help #adaptation actions move towards meeting #genderequality and other #climatejustice goals.

In the last week, not only 27 Opposition MPs have been suspended (4 in #LokSabha, 23 in #RajyaSabha), but as many as 97 Questions asked by these MPs have been DELETED & Govt has avoided answering these Qs!
There is NO provision in RULES to permit such deletion of Qs!
#Thread
This dubious practice, which isn't permitted by Rules & has no logic, was first noticed in #MonsoonSession 2020, repeated in Monsoon Session 2021, Winter Session 2021 and now happening again in current #MonsoonSession2022.
See our earlier #Thread-
In the current #MonsoonSession, following is the tally of Qs 'DELETED'. Also, see pics of some Deleted Qs.
- 11 Qs asked by 4 suspended Opposition MPs in #LokSabha
- 86 Qs asked by 23 suspended Opposition MPs in #RajyaSabha

"Argument-Making in the Wild"

Today's SFI Seminar by Simon DeDeo (@LaboratoryMinds), streaming now. Follow our thread for pull quotes and slides:

First, let's divide human history into three eras, or regimes of #knowledge #production and #consumption:

• #premodern/#archaic
• #modern + #postmodern
• the #egregore (online content sharing)

• The premodern era is defined by caloric restriction.
• The modern era is characterized by a small number of sellers of #information vs. a large number of consumers (see also #HerbertSimon's remarks on the "poverty of #attention")

The conference brought together scientists in quantum gravity and quantum information, and philosophers working on the conceptual aspect of spacetime and the quantum. We opted for an innovative format: no lengthy talks but 2-hour discussions for each different question! #QISS Image
Before discussing each question, the sessions were opened by a few lightening talks of 15’ max that were meant to introduce the question and ignite the following discussion. The format worked out with the discussions touching on the talks’ topic and getting wider and wider! #QISS Image

Beware Information war by certain sections of the foreign media, including the Hong Kong based media. Sadly there are Indian media, intellectuals and experts, who get easily carried away by such mis-information, instead of expressing scepticism, while reporting it!

1/ It is once again a time for choosing for the Western world. Our governments appear to be stabilising the #sanctions regime and stalling on the range of #weapons to #Ukraine. Insufficient pressure is dangerous. As we can see, #Russian aggression continues.
2/ Fundamentally, the more the forces of the aggressor state gain ground and surround cities, the more harm they can and will do against innocent civilians. But the more the invaders are pushed back and suffer high losses in men and materiel, the better.
3/ For this reason, I advocate a quantum leap in #military assistance to #Ukraine, covering a broader volume and range of equipment and training (locations and modalities for specialists to determine).
Covert actions in concert with #Ukraine's defenders could also be useful.

The disinformation channel Russia Today may have started it (or kicked it off?) one week ago by selling merchandise with the symbol of the invasion. Meanwhile, Russian social media is flooded with paroles using the symbol.

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:
