"The recent radical ideas to save nature; namely ‘half earth’ (nature needs half) and ‘new conservation’ further threatens biodiversity conservation and community livelihoods" - Wilhelm Kiwango #pollen20

Challenging the mainstream narrative at this crucial time

George Iordachescu highlights the long history of collective management of large forested and pasture areas. #Commons management goes back 1000 years, transcending nature-culture divide and drawing on local #knowledge. Conservation not the main goal (it's #livelihoods) #pollen20 ImageImageImage
Emmanuel Akanpurira unpacks some of the assumptinos Fortress Conservation is based upon.

He draws on Butler and Membe to deconstruct assumptions about human-wildlife conflict.

Work from Uganda shows conflict not inevitable but due to authority-grabs by conservation NGOs.. ImageImageImageImage

[1/X] Attempt to explain Orderflow basics. It will be a long thread but will try to make the content worth the read.

Below is a Depth of Market (DOM). The
Blue ones = Bid Limit orders
Red ones = Ask Limit orders

So what happens to these orders in the trade cycle

#Basics Image
[2/X] Such limit orders are invariable absorbed by the Market Orders.

It is the Market Orders that drive the markets up and down.

Lesson # 1: Every auction starts with a Bid and an Ask
Lesson # 2: Market orders move the price
[3/X] So how do we track these market orders. We track them on the Footprint aka Cluster charts

GREEN = Buy Market Orders
RED = SELL Market Orders

Market Orders indicate Aggresiveness Image

Do you remember when Prophet was denied entry in Makkah for Umra? It was against all norms!
In history only once Companions didn’t rush to obey Prophet when he asked them to shave their head without performing Umra! They were shocked..Continued 1/

Companions were shocked & Saddened! Do you remember dialogue of Omar RA with Prophet SAW in the eve of treaty of Hudaibiya?
Do you recall Muslim prisoners were returned to Pagans as per treaty?

1-We have been talking about #Mantras and their place in the #Vedic #Tradition.

Today, let’s dwell on the #Shakti Mantras – quite perhaps the most #esoteric and #Powerful entities in their own right. (1/19)

#गुप्तज्योतिष
2-A word of caution here.

Shakti Mantras are like an Atomic Bomb

They are extremely powerful

..and should be practiced with due consideration, initiation and guidance by your #Guru and under your full #Intuition. (2/19)

@ijyotish @shashankupadhy_

#astrologicalnuggets
3-Fundamentally, Shakti Mantras are extremely powerful, mono or single syllabled mantras.

In the higher Yogic practices they have a special usage. (3/19)

taught man that which he knew not, is an honour,
which revealed the secrets of vertex of humanity. 1/7

#Traders path #Futures & #Options

1: Understanding the game

Trading is not much different from playing poker game or betting on various other things.

It’s just a structured game where rules are not made by anyone, but needs to be followed by everyone in game.
Understanding those rules and adjusting yourself is a continuous process which will never end. As #SEBI would keep on changing rules.

The important thing to understand is any thing in life if we want to succeed we need patience and dedication.
A 2 hour webinar or 2 day course can’t teach you about #CapitalMarkets or #Trading it’s impossible.

Personally i feel have around 40-50% knowledge about capital markets after more than 12years of trading experience.

Dear #Academia, can reflect on the wording “what can we learn from #Indigenous Knowledge/people/experience” for a sec?

1) That framing has the danger of being extractive, and it potentially diminishes us as only being of use when we serve non-Indigenous means 1/5
Generalizable knowledge is important. But #academia must reconcile its colonial duality of discrediting our #knowledge systems while also wanting to benefit from it.

It’s time to enact protective and supportive structures if you value our contributions (hint to the NIH) 2/5
2) Requests for our knowledge can seem like a disingenuously guised #diversity #inclusion checkbox ☑️ that resembles “other”-ing, if unexpected.

Building trust is important here. So is not self-proclaiming allyship. If you want us to do the work, then you must work also. 3/5

These are the #stories of #math that we celebrate, amplify and make central to the idea of #maths as a #objective #neutral #culture-free subject. #Math can do no #harm, and the #logical “pure math” thinking of #Mathematicians is worthy of emulation. But... 1/x
2/x ... "What about pure mathematics and mathematicians who merely prove theorems? Is there any #ethical component comparable to what you find in other fields of #science?" - R. Hersh in Experiencing #Mathematics
3/x One point of view: "there's no need for #mathematicians to have a code of #ethics, because what we do matters so little that we can do whatever we like."

#My_Twitter_Rule 20/1
Our youth in a rush to create following on digital platforms. It is good start, but do they know what next. Having big following is just tool, unless one knew what to do with it, interest will die down after a while. Please read & learn who we (Muslims) are?
#My_Twitter_Rule 20/2
But read what? How to build #knowledge. #Information & Knowledge are two different things. Use Authentic sources, Introspection, Deliberation & Exchanges brings #Wisdom to the discourse.
Starting point is always #Quran! Read once translation & commentary....
#My_Twitter_Rule 20/3
Quran is a biggest gift of Allah, a guide, a constitution & a Hidaya. THAWAB is not its primary purpose!
Prophet SAW biography. He is a leader, head of state, a commander, peace maker, Mercy to mankind, role model (husband, father neighbor an orphan himself)

1-A lot of people sometimes contact me – for what is perhaps unique to #India!

They call it #HoroscopeMatching.

And it is undertaken mostly just before the marriage season commences – around the end of #October. (1/29)

And today, we shall dwell a little on it (2/29)

Here is a #simplified version of the understanding. (3/29)

Looking for ways to bring discussions of #racism in your #science classes? Some ideas I use in class & in talks e.g. genome-wide sequencing studies, databases are skewed. Must be accounted for when extrapolating these data (e.g. personalized medicine) nature.com/news/genomics-… 1/n
Especially when those findings are used to develop decision #algorithms otherwise #racism gets "baked in" #ArtificialIntelligence is not neutral. Healthcare outcomes reflect societal racism nature.com/articles/d4158…

any claims of #5G safety by #BigTelecom are cynical PR distraction ploy from core threats to human health (which #BigWireless, #lobbyists & servile ‘regulator’ .@GovCanHealth — both #PHAC & #HealthCanada — refuse to acknowledge)
