Preliminary observations on #TurkeyElections:
1) The opposition (#Nation bloc) making major gains, including the capital Ankara & Antalya.
2) HDP proved to be kingmakers - swayed votes to the #Nation bloc.
3) AKP losing significant votes & mayors to its #Peoples bloc partner MHP.
Preliminary prediction on #TurkeyElections: AKP cadres have seen that #Erdoğan's strategy of framing the elections around the theme "existential threat" has backfired, and will start complaining of losing votes, municipalities, & spoils to their ultranationalist partner #MHP.
Of #Turkey's 12 largest cities, the opposition is winning at least 7: #Ankara, #İzmir, #Adana, #Antalya, #Mersin, #Eskişehir, & #Diyarbakır. The largest city #Istanbul is a toss-up! #Bursa, too, is too close to call. AKP is losing Turkey's economic power houses. #TurkeyElections

Some notes on @nntaleb's #Antifragile: Some things benefit from shocks; they thrive and grow when exposed to volatility,randomness, disorder, and stressors and love adventure, risk, and uncertainty.. there is no word for the exact opposite of fragile. Let us call it antifragile.
This is pretty much a sense of complexity
of much interesting is that aging and chronical diseases (as diabetes) lower your complexity level in physiological time series such as heart rate (working paper)

Proper approach: count the rate of these things for @Tesla, compare to other auto-makers, & adjust by other safety statistics.

I can't believe that 18 years after Fooled by Randomness this type of bulls**t is still rampant.

Another rule: Never listen to actors except on acting.
There are 150K-200K car fires per annum. You take one event & an emotional statement of an actress & turn it into a statement about the safety of @Tesla. And this is 2018.

I am blocking any commentator who doesn't get it. In this and other similar situations. Finito.
This idiot @matt_blackwell is a pol "scientist" doing "statistics" & didn't get that news isn't spreading because a minor actress is complaining abt her car being burned, but because @Tesla.
Would the news spread if it were one of the other 180K?

The maqam of Ertugrul Ghazi, the man who laid the foundations for the Ottoman Empire. #IYI
The Prophet ﷺ said: “Verily you shall conquer Constantinople. What a wonderful leader will he be, and what a wonderful army will that army be!” (Ahmed)

The man who did this was sultan Fatih, an ottoman follower of the hanafi madhab, Maturidi in creed & naqsbandi in tariqa.
One of the many meanings of Al kawthar mentioned in the books of tafsir is the daughter of rasoolallah ﷺ sayyida Fatima, rasoolallah ﷺ lineage continues through her and shaykh Abdul Qadri Jilani is from that noble lineage.
