The @PrefaceVentures website is live: prefaceventures.com. Special thanks to @brettberson @aTouchofAir as well as an anonymous designer akin to Banksy for the output. We're doing a few things a bit differently, specifically around founder #communication. A thread:
1 / Founders deserve more #transparency into how VC's operate and what we will do for them as partners. At Preface we call this "The Code", which is essentially our #SLA for #frontierenterprise founders
2 / We are clear how and what we invest in you. How much initially ($250-$750k), how much is reserved for follow-ons (1-3x) and how often (5-7x pa, ~20 investments per fund). This simple info is impossible to find online on 99% of VC’s

1. It seems they have decided to oppose it by all means. They are doing it to avenge the demolition of #Baburi Mosque in India, back in early 90s.

This is a gentle request to them, please don't forget that your brutality, hate against your people, the minorities of Pakistan,
2. Pakistani Hindus, won't chang anything, it won't hurt them, neithr produce anything gud 4 any1.

If u want to build a #Baburi Mosq at d site of the #Mandir in Islambad, u r free. But trust me, it won't chang anything in India, rathr weaken our stance at d international levl.
3. It would disturb interfaith #harmony in our country, it would stop us from #progress, it would damage #Peace and #prosperity in our country, Pakistan.
It is better to make religion our private matter, and accept the difference rather than imposing our belief on others.

ISLAMISM ? OR NARCISSISM ?
As the entire world is suffering from the ill effects of radical Islam, this thread looks at Islamist ideology from the realm of clinical psychology. An average Islamist is, in essence, a narcissist. This thread is not aimed at hurting anyone.
1/n
Definitions: Islamism_extremist thoughts of political domination by means of Islam.
Narcissism_a mental condition in which one has inflated sense of entitlement and total lack of empathy that leads to troubled surroundings and relationships.
2/n
The Diagnostic & Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders lists 9 criteria/symptoms that can be used to diagnosis a clear case of narcissism. Each criteria will be juxtaposed with classic signs of radicalism amongst our Islamist brethren. Your opinions are valuable.

#Slavery was America’s original sin, but it was also ours in Europe. After all it was the Portuguese, Brits, French, Spaniards, Dutch, Danes, and the occasional Norwegian who drove the #slavetrade. Less obviously barbaric, but far bigger in scale was Europe’s #Colonialism ...
This was considered respectable well within living memory. Top them up with centuries of #Antisemitism , a rising #Islamophobia and endemic #racism against the #Roma and it's not good enough for us in Europe to be smug about the upheaval in the US, but let's look in the mirror!
Talk to the #Congolese in #Belgium, the #Syrians in #Germany, the #Pakistanis in the #UK, the #Somalis in #Norway, the #Afghans in #Sweden, the #Chinese in #Italy what their daily experience of life in Europe is like. Full of a thousand humiliations, comes the honest answer.

1) If you claim to be a #Liberal today, your world must be incredibly strange. There are two types of Liberal, the #elite overlords, and the useful idiots. You can decide for yourself where you fit. But there is no doubt that you EMPOWER the CORRUPT ESTABLISHMENT. Lets sum it up:
2) You believe that killing a baby is your "right", but killing newborn puppies or bird eggs should land you in jail.
3) You believed, without evidence, that #Trump was a puppet of #Russia. When he imposed brutal sanctions, you ignored it to preserve your world view.

Hajra Bi said Our children had come back after Friday prayers when PAC climbed our terrace and asked about gunshots(imprints are still there on the walls).One of them was dancing,He mocked me asked if it was Amitabh Bachchan who had fired.They took away my son who never came back
Haneef said, "PAC desperately tried to enter house and then told me to come outside. I was the first one to be arrested. Later other men from the locality also assembled and formed a line. We were told to keep our hands up and were taken to civil lines police

The Narendra Modi-led NDA govt must control things before they spin out into something much bigger. There are three main worries the government is grappling with: @abhijitmajumder on #CABBill2019

@abhijitmajumder Telling friendly neighbours that you have persecuted #minorities is bad #diplomacy and cocking a snook at those who stood by you in protecting your #NationalSecurity interests — #CABBill2019 conveys that to #Afghanistan and #Bangladesh: @jayanthjacob

LIBERALS ARE ATTEMPTING TO REVERSE THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT!

Think about it!

And who’s leading them?
A woman posts a “risky pic”

-conservative women compliment and applaud her.
-liberal women attack her.

THEY SAY...

*fat
*ugly
*old
*bad mom
*whore
Liberals claim that republicans are racists.

A black supporter steps up and says “I’m a republican”

THEY SAY...

Hi everyone thank you for all your support and empathy in the past few days.
To minimize further injuries, the original voicemail with the intended subject's name has been removed, but I am reposting here with name obscured: soundcloud.com/user-251012259… (thanks for tech help!)
I am also reposting my entire Twitter message regarding this incident, with other important ideas I forgot to include:
four days ago my work phone got a rambling but confrontational 3.5 min voicemail from someone questioning my legitimacy to teach based on my presumed #citizenship and #ethnic identity. You can hear the actual message here: soundcloud.com/user-251012259…
