My tired brain would like to associate '8' with infinity, since that's how long it will take to get any semblance of #diversity across #media.

Here's month eight of tracking the sorry #OpEds of @IndianExpress @htTweets and @the_hindu.

THREAD
As sad as it is to note the increase in the number of #COVIDー19 positive cases across #India, it's sadder to note the lack of increase in #female #OpEds.

@IndianExpress had 129 #OpEds, @htTweets 78 & @the_hindu 120.
Of the 129 in IE, #women got 37 bylines, including 10 #jointbylines.

@IndianExpress adopts a convenient trope of getting multiple joint bylines featuring women. At times, as many as 3 women for one small piece.

While this is just sad, it ups the numbers.

How did the #Oxford-educated daughter of a publishing tycoon wind up in jail charged with trafficking minors for Jeffrey #Epstein? Vassi Chamberlain, who knew #Maxwell, speaks to her former friends
London, 1990. I have just arrived at a dinner in a newly opened Soho restaurant with people I barely know. I see a long table rammed with the deafening confidence of entitled rich young things.

It is a desperate pitched #battle that #humanity is waging to stop the deadly advance of the #coronavirus.

Since its appearance in #Wuhan #China three months ago, the pandemic has infected one million people and killed 50,000, on a planet inhabited by 6 billion human beings.
Much of the world's population today is #besieged in cities, entrenched in their homes, as an extreme measure to escape the #plague & save lives.

We’re living, without a doubt, a time of tension & psychological crisis, while science, in a fight against the clock, is looking in
medicine for a solution to the challenges of the #pandemic.

The coronavirus is telling the world, in all shades, that #life is more important than #capital, because without life there is no factory.

Salvation is in human #solidarity and not in the perversity of Donald #Trump,

As always, am going to be massively wrong but lets see if these makes sense

will internet bandwidth choked (everyone is WFH), OTT streaming is slow and in mobile defaulted to SD
cable is the best place to get HD.. recharged your tataSky/Dish TV? you are not the only one...

The Council for National Policy #CNP, "The Secret Society"
web.archive.org/web/2012102019…
"the heart of a great conservative movement that helped to make America strong and prosperous in the 20th century – now helping to ensure she remains free and secure in the 21st century,"
Some CNP members - Mike Pence comes quickly to mind - in the context of bolstering their conservative credentials, have proudly revealed their CNP membership, even though CNP's policy is to keep membership a secret. Here is it's 2014 Membership, the latest splcenter.org/sites/default/…
#CNP's tentacles include well-connected activists who advocate for the imposition of fundamentalist Christian ideology in public life and have succeeded in forcing their agenda in republican administrations. A list of organizations working with CNP web.archive.org/web/2012020417…

#Update #Antisemitic Incident!

#Germany #Gießen #Buchenwald

It was an incident that made headlines far beyond the borders of the 14,000-inhabitant city of #Grünberg (#Gießen).
At the beginning of November, it became known that several students from Theo-Koch School had #played and #sung #Antisemitic songs on their way back from a visit to the memorial in the former #Buchenwald #concentrationcamp near #Weimar.
Even then, the school announced the #consequences. Now school #community has turned to the public - with an #advertisement in a regional #newspapers. In the #ad, which appeared under the heading "Zero #Tolerance with #AntiSemitism",

1. @ExtinctionR Having looked at some of your policies & grievances my advice to you as a scientist is to do your own research before you jump to conclusions; resist the temptation to go down a EnergyDeadEnd path before really appreciating after years of research life's realities
2. @ExtinctionR scenario has come about through a few scientists exaggerating #ClimateChange which is a natural phenomena that has occurred since Earth had an atmosphere; one of the variables keeping us warm is yes photosynthesising #TraceGas #CO2 as well as water vapour (clouds)
3. @ExtinctionR Earth's CO2 levels vary over time & currently only 0.041% or to make it sound larger 410ppm on average; at levels below 200ppm to 150ppm #photosynthesis ceases & all life relying on plants will die off.
Many other variables are involved with #ClimateChange e.g.Sun

Today marks 20 years since the 1999 Iranian student uprising. Known in #Iran by its “ground zero” as “The Disaster of the Ku-ye Daneshgah Dormitories”, the uprising - sometimes likened to 1989 #Tiananmen Square protests in China - carries great historical significance.
THREAD /1
The background: on July 7, #Iran’s judiciary - using a new, tougher Press Bill - ordered the closing of daily Salâm, which had since 1991 criticized conservatives in power. Salâm was then considered one of numerous pro-reform #newspapers that since 97 election of Khatami … /2
… had exposed #corruption, #injustice, #inequality + demanded transparency, justice. The banning of Salâm + new law to curb #pressfreedom - marked beginning of hardliners’ campaign to crush the blossoming civil society and political mobilisation connected with #reformism. /3

I read this last night & found it so good that I read it twice & thrice & realized it’s #TooGoodNotToShare..

It’s Beautifully written and worth a read for understanding what life is all about..

A man who has gone out of his town comes back and finds that his house is on fire.
It was one of the most beautiful houses in the town, and the man loved the house the most!

Many people were ready to give double price for the house, but he had never agreed for any price and now it is just burning before his eyes.
And thousands of people have gathered, but nothing can be done, the fire has spread so far that even if you try to put it out, nothing will be saved.

He becomes very sad and tears start rolling down his eyes 👀

Pres. Moon (@moonriver365) at 63rd Newspaper Day Ceremony: "Newspapers are a mirror for our society. They are a barometer for the strength of a people and a nation. Thus, there is no difference between the goals of the people and the Government and those of #newspapers.”
"Our society will be transformed into a better community, if the conscience of newspaper journalists is expressed freely and newspapers represent the weak and marginalized. To this end, the Government must also join forces."
"Newspapers in Korea, together with the people, have pushed their way through the shackles of history. With this in mind, I hope newspapers will always remain partners in jointly creating an innovative, inclusive Korea that is fairer, freer and more democratic and peaceful."

A thread of all my pieces in 2019. Will add to this throughout the year. My focus on land rights and media freedoms continue. Watch out for a series on women's land rights later in the year. Also, a series of stories on Hindu fundamentalism.
A look at journalists' safety in 2018. Most murders of #journalists are underreported. Simple fact is that we dont know how many journalists are being killed in the line of duty every day in India.

Women have known for ages that their battle against patriarchy will be sustained, slow, and often disappointing. This is the story of 3,500,000 women of Kerala who began the year with some hope.

This all started because the #MetPolice & #LBRUT couldn't do their day jobs properly & decided to take the law into their own hands. It started as a small cover up 12 years ago but has turned into British State Persecution.

#Skynews #BBCNews #DailyMail #Guardian #Euronews
My company was raided. It should have been a straightforward matter. But the #MetPolice & #LBRUT forgot to seize my computer & came back to do a 2nd raid. The search warrant didn't permit a second entry, however, #LBRUT entered unlawfully

#Guardian #Telegraph #DailyMail #GMB #UK
Complaints were then made to my MP #VinceCable. He liaised with the #Metpolice & #LBRUT. And then weeks later, the search warrant was completely changed & was passed off as the search warrant executed on the day of the raids.
