Just like the case against the awe-worthy @sharmasupriya for her reporting in #Varanasi, here's a list of FIRs filed against #journalists in #UttarPradesh in the last year. Fasten your seatbelts, it will not be a short #Thread

In March, at the height of the #lcokdown, @thewire_in's @svaradarajan was delivered a legal notice by police from Ayodhya. A quote in an article was wrongly attributed UP the Chief Minister, which was retracted and a corrigendum issued.
On 26 March, DM of #Varanasi sent a legal notice to Hindi daily Jansandesh Times claiming their report about tribal children eating grass for want of food due to the sudden announcement of the lockdown on March 24 was false. 3/n

Previously, farmers with marketable surplus could only sell to Licensed buyers such as State & private mandis, APMC licenced cold storages/ warehouses/ Companies. But these buyers could sell to anyone! A very skewed market, right!? Farmer lost earning, Trader gained margins!

Further, with the Essential Commodities Act (ECA) Govt had the right to impose price or stock control on commodities or ban exports at any time. This created intense volatility & trust deficit. No entrepreneur small or large wanted to venture into this unpredictable quagmire.

If you are bullish on Gold, don't go all in. There might be another pullback for Gold / Gold miners on the horizon. Too many retail investors are buying the dip (even more, they are levering up).

With no sports to bet on, and casinos closed, it’s not far-fetched to think gamblers will scratch their itch with day trading too.

Forced into cold turkey for everything @AmazonUK related.

Account forcibly closed.

After over a month of trying to get @AmazonHelp to, ahem, help through their app's online chat, Amazon decided that their recommended solution to their issue didn't sit well with them after all
...a bit of background.

On 31 March 2020, I received what I thought was a phishing phone call asking me about purchase of gift certificates on @AmazonUK.

I told them as much because I had not used Amazon to buy anything at all that day.

I thought nothing more of it.

...that is until I got some automated emails saying that transactions for gift vouchers and merchandise I knew nothing about had been cancelled.

I logged into Amazon to find that I had to change password and that purchases before 27 March no longer appeared under 'my orders'.

Santosh Solanki, a ward assistant at the Naidu Infectious Diseases Hospital, Pune has been serving patients amidst the Covid pandemic. During the swine-flu outbreak as well, he was one of the many faceless staffers who worked from morning till late at night.
While doctors and nurses are often recognised for their work, seldom are ward assistants or orderlies given any credit. Yet, staffers like Solanki continue to serve the patients selflessly. Even Solanki’s mother was a cleaning staff at the hospital, so was his grandmother.
Solanki says, “There are times when we are treated badly by patients or their family members, but I have no regrets. Rich or poor, we are all humans. The disease doesn’t discriminate. We know that they are under tremendous stress. So, we always respond to all patients politely.”

Who will win #lockdown2020, those who normally put a lot of effort into their appearance or those who have less far to fall?
What will those who normally put hours into their appearance do will all this new free time?

Also those crazy nails are just virus catchers. Say goodbye for your own health.
I mean, it's totally creepy and i disavow this, but Zoom even has a filter to glow you up. So you now have copious free ex-grooming time elitedaily.com/p/heres-how-to…
