Profitons de l'attention suscitée par l'avis de la @CIIVISE_contact sur les mères de victimes d'#inceste présumées pour dresser un petit bilan de nos connaissances, ou plutôt de notre méconnaissance de l'inceste paternel en France. #metooinceste

This thread 🧵is going inside the mind of the master adaptive learner with @mpusic and @RB_Cavalcanti at #ICRE2021

Hold tight. This is going to be a crazy ride!… Image
Let's start with some definitions. Love that.
@mpusic and @RB_Cavalcanti at #ICRE2021 are starting us off at the beginning, but it got deep Image
Learning is part of the core identity of a clinician. We equally need adaptability.

We need to skate between innovation and efficiency for each patient. @mpusic assures me that we CAN teach for adaptability.

#mustread The Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party government in Delhi has spent Rs 293 crore on advertisement in TV channels, newspapers and radio during the pandemic year 2020-21. This is Rs 93.2 crore more than what it spent in 2019-20.
There has been a 2,500% increase from the ad spend in 2012-13, when the Congress-led Delhi government under Sheila Dixit spent only ₹11.18 crore on advertisements. The Kejriwal government has spent approximately ₹805 crore on advertisements ever since he came to power in 2015.
This information has come to light in responses to queries sought under the RTI Act by rights activist @Kanhaiyablogs.

However, these numbers are much lower than what the Delhi government has mentioned in their budget documents.

#MustRead: The recently released financial statement of PM’s National Relief Fund (PMNRF) for the financial year 2019-20 has revealed that the govt invested Rs 250 crore in Yes Bank Fixed Deposit Receipts even though the RBI had flagged concerns about the bank in 2018.
The investment was more than the Rs 222 cr that the Union govt gave as relief in the year which saw Covid-19, Cyclone Fani and severe floods.
This has raised concerns that Modi govt has converted the PMNRF into a corporate bailout vehicle instead of providing relief.
The investment in Yes Bank was done even though in the beginning of 2019, the RBI had put a moratorium on the bank and Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman had stated that the central bank had been monitoring the Yes Bank since 2017.

"Sacred sites lack specific and enforceable protections”: Indigenous people face legal barriers that hinder the protection of sacred sites
Such important reporting by @DebKrol. Essential reading. Photos by @photoevans…
Across the Southwest, Native peoples continue to fight legal barriers and bureaucratic obstacles. “Their long-held spiritual ties to the land have been broken by laws, redrawn boundaries and the regulations that open public lands to profitable uses.”…
"The callous destruction of Indigenous sacred sites is not just a troubling relic of the past." As recently as 2020, the federal government blew up Apache burial sites to clear the land for the border wall.… @Debkrol

Thread — #MustRead New #Book on June 1984:-

“ਤੀਜਾ ਘੱਲੂਘਾਰਾ: ਵੱਖ-ਵੱਖ ਗੁਰਦੁਆਰਿਆਂ ਉੱਤੇ ਹੋਏ ਫੌਜੀ ਹਮਲਿਆਂ ਦੀ ਵਿਥਿਆ: ਚਸ਼ਮਦੀਦ ਗਵਾਹਾਂ ਦੀ ਜ਼ੁਬਾਨੀ” ਕਿਤਾਬ ਇਸ ਸਾਲ 6 ਜੂਨ ਨੂੰ ਗੁਰਦੁਆਰਾ ਯਾਦਗਾਰ ਸ਼ਹਿਦਾਂ (ਜੂਨ ੧੯੮੪) ਵਿਖੇ ਜਾਰੀ ਹੋਈ ਸੀ।
ਕਿਤਾਬ ਨੂੰ ਸਿੱਖ ਸੰਗਤ ਵੱਲੋਂ ਭਰਵਾਂ ਹੁੰਗਾਰਾ ਮਿਲਣ ਦੇ ਮੱਦੇਨਜ਼ਰ ਕਿਤਾਬ ਦੀ ਪਹਿਲੀ ਛਾਪ ਮਹੀਨੇ ਕੁ ਦੇ ਸਮੇਂ ਵਿੱਚ ਮੁੱਕ ਗਈ ਸੀ। ਹੁਣ ਬਿਬੇਕਗੜ੍ਹ ਪ੍ਰਕਾਸ਼ਨ ਵੱਲੋਂ ਕਿਤਾਬ ਦੀ ਤਿਆਰ ਕੀਤੀ ਗਈ ਦੂਜੀ ਛਾਪ ਜਾਰੀ ਕਰ ਦਿੱਤੀ ਗਈ ਹੈ।
ਇਹ ਕਿਤਾਬ ਇੱਕ ਅਹਿਮ ਇਤਿਹਾਸਕ ਦਸਤਾਵੇਜ਼ ਹੈ ਜੋ ਕਿ ਜੂਨ 1984 ਦੇ ਇਤਿਹਾਸ ਬਾਰੇ ਜਾਨਣ ਦੇ ਜਗਿਆਸੂਆਂ ਅਤੇ ਇਸ ਘੱਲੂਘਾਰੇ ਬਾਰੇ ਖੋਜ ਕਰ। ਵਾਲਿਆਂ ਲਈ ਅਹਿਮ ਸਰੋਤ ਹੈ। ਇਹ ਕਿਤਾਬ ਤੁਸੀਂ @bibekgarh1 @SikhShahadat, ਅਤੇ @sikhsiyasat ਰਾਹੀਂ ਦੁਨੀਆ ਭਰ ਵਿੱਚ ਕਿਤੇ ਵੀ ਮੰਗਵਾ ਸਕਦੇ ਹੋ।

Yes, we owe it to people of Afghanistan to accept numerous refugees.

No, we can’t make that happen by calling evangelicals “not true Christians.”

The critique of hypocrisy doesn’t affect them, but this framing *does* reinforce the very Christian hegemony that lets them run amok
Hand-wringing pundits have been criticizing evangelicals as hypocrites regularly since 2016. Hypocrisy is a baked in feature of authoritarianism, but what so many Americans refuse to acknowledge—it is crucial to face this—is that Christianity is not always or inherently benign
No complex cultural system subject to communal differentiation and internal contestation—and religions are such systems—is benign in its entirety or in its every iteration.

Religious traditions are multivalent.

There’s no “one true way” to do any such complex system

Done reading. Seems a bit out of date, with the references to "blogs", but it isn't. What it describes is now mainstream media practice.

Excellent read. Helped affirm intuitions that built up in me over the past 3-4 years as well as fill in gaps re: the mechanics.
+ Image
Also helped assert a sound basis to some rules I've found myself adopting online e.g. on here:

If anything is a trigger, I refuse to act on it. The check is always what I feel - if angry, outraged or shocked, the reflex-in-training is to feel the emotion and Do Nothing.
Reaction from me does not come cheap and certainly not easily or so frequently. If someone wants it, they have to work harder/do better.

If something's rapidly getting traction, ignore it till the dust settles. As it is, there's sweet f'all I can do about something already ...+

As I stated earlier this is quite obviously a coup from my point of view. I won't blame anyone, foreign or Tunisian, for using this term. However, foreign occasional observers of Tunisia have had kneejerk reactions, relying on fetishist, inappropriate frameworks
to tell Tunisia's story. What's missing is often a genuine interest in understanding the context that led to them coup and what might be it's consequences, and what it might mean to diverse Tunisian actors with variegated interests and perspectives.
All I've seen is Thomas Friedman-style analogies, narrow perspectives, cheap activism by bystanders with no skin in the game. But it was to be expected. (Western) journalism, policy-making and academia are less and less about understanding and more and more about pedantic memes.

Read this important new piece by @MatthewBoedy!

One quibble - linking to an article of mine, Matthew says critics of Christian nationalism often refer to it as Christian supremacism.

I don't see the two as synonymous: CS is broader and deeper than CN…
Let me explain. But first, here's the piece of mine that @MatthewBoedy linked to, which, thanks! As a writer I definitely don't equally like everything I write, but I am still pretty fond of this one, four months after writing it :)…

Now then, what's the difference between Christian nationalism and Christian supremacism/supremacy (either term works in my view)?

Christian nationalism is obviously an expression of Christian supremacy, but CS isn't always so overt or directly ideologically formulated

Most of this week I am attending the @gartner Data & Analytics Summit - EMEA (from inside my home office. yay!). I will be sharing my appreciation for some of the speakers/sessions in this 🧵as well as knowledge that I gained and think is worthy of sharing!

Morning started off well with a great session by @danielmintz on how to 'Break the adoption barrier'!

Colleagues are so used to have seamless access to data in their personal lives, while accessing data at work is an horrendous struggle. The gap is huge!

#GartnerDA ImageImage
Participated in a Workshop around 'Creating an Effective Data and Analytics Strategy' with @mikerollings.

It contained some useful exercises that I will take with me in the discussions regarding @Vanderlande 's Data-Driven Strategy!

Creo que ahora es nuestra oportunidad de aportar nuestro granito de arena. Empecemos con el hilo de cuentas de divulgación que son muy geniales :3
Desde que empezamos en esto de la divulgación histórica, han sido un referente. No solo porque creo que es poco decir que sin ellos no existiría este proyecto, sino que nos han dado pequeñas genialidades como sus libros y El Condensador de Fluzo (junto con el resto). Image
@ElCubildePeter ha sido otro referente. Se puede hacer divulgación histórica con un tono desenfadado, exponiendo los argumentos y siempre desde la honradez. Aplicable también para @OtraHistoriaYT, que siempre hemos apreciado su labor titánica en YouTube. ImageImage

The approach we are taking with the course is that of an interdisciplinary research group focused on education. We will collectively inquire, learn, imagine, design & share our thinking over the course of the term.

We invite you to follow along & join in through #UWClimateEd ImageImage
The driving question of our shared inquiry will be:

How can we promote learning in order to create more just, thriving, and regenerative conditions for all Earthly beings, human and otherwise?

Together we will think across timescales, contexts for learning, and worldviews.
