The definition of what is pure/SiShTa differed from language to language. It is fairly black and white for a language that is largely only literary. For a spoken language, it is lot more challenging to define or agree on this- also it changes with time dynamically

1/19
Tampering with grammatical structure is a no-no for any language- spoken or written. For instance, you cannot use another language’s vibhakti pratyaya wily-nily. Same with application of grammar rules from another language. That will be “impure” even if done just once.

2/19
One may create a “maNipravALa” or “bhANDIra” style specifically for writing & that may in time be accepted for that purpose, but this will not become accepted in common spoken language. In common speech, it will still be “impure”. Again, this will have its own specific rules

Perceptions of #inequality: 🇲🇽🇧🇷🇺🇸🇿🇦

A report from @AFD_France lays out one of the biggest problems for people interested in reducing #inequalities: Inaccurate public #perception of the problem.

“The research finds that individuals have a relatively accurate perception of #poverty, but they substantially overestimate the prevalence of #affluence."

This research shows that people struggle to understand the extent and the depth of the #economic gulfs between us.
(2/x) Image
The fantasy that people can bootstrap their circumstances and achieve some sort of affluent Dream - as has been shown repeatedly - is a myth reinforced by selective, highly publicized examples.

I read an #InterestingStory about a complaint regarding Vanilla Ice Cream that left #GeneralMotors puzzled and found it to be #TooGoodNotToShare

Moral of the story being ... “Never underestimate your Customers' Complaint, no matter how funny it might seem!”

Here we go ...
A complaint was received by the Pontiac Division of General Motors:

'This is the second time I have written to you, and I don't blame you for not answering me, because I sounded crazy, but it is a fact..
You see, every time I buy a vanilla ice-cream, when I start back from the store my car won't start. If I get any other kind of ice cream, the car starts just fine.

#DBL #DilipBuildcon

Dilip Buildcon Ltd. is an India-based company engaged in the business of #infrastructure facilities on engineering procurement and construction (#EPC) basis for #roads #Bridges #Irrigation & #UrbanProjects.
@srslysaurabh @avinashmehta123 @Agarwal_Ishu
Why should one look into this? And does this deserve a place in my portfolio. Here’s my rational below.

#DBL started as a #Road Construction company for the western region and now has diversified into multiple segments and the co. has covered almost all the states in #India.
#DBL has secured orders worth INR 10703 Cr. In FY 21 and the total order book stands at approximately INR 26115 Cr. Orders are balanced between state govt. and central govt. entities. The company has successfully reduced risk on all parameters as far as business is concerned.

Lets talk about #Oil and why the price of the #US benchmark #WTI West Texas Intermediate has turned negative FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER...
Some of you are waking up to what might read or sound like another disaster. Just when you were learning how to deal with #COVID19, you hear about a so called plunge in the #Price of #Oil. But what does it mean to have oil in negative territory & why is that the case? Lets see...
In the main we will talk a bit about simple matters of #supply & #demand while touching on the #future as far as #consumer outlooks & #perception / #confidence are concerned. I would like us to start in 2016, a quick recap...what happened to #Oil?

The #Coronavirus Could Reshape #Global #Order ~ @kurtmcampbell @RushDoshi

"As #Washington falters, #Beijing is moving quickly and adeptly to take advantage of the opening created by US mistakes, filling the vacuum to position itself as the global leader in pandemic response. 1/n
It is working to tout its own system, provide #material #assistance to other #countries, and even organize other #governments. The sheer chutzpah of #China’s move is hard to overstate. 2/n

#CCP_is_terrorist #CCPvirus #ChineseVirus #WuhanVirus #CoronaVirusCHINA
Yet #Beijing understands that if it is seen as leading, and #Washington is seen as unable or unwilling to do so, this #perception could fundamentally alter the United States’ position in #global politics and the contest for #leadership in the twenty-first century. 3/n

Morning Twitter! I'm @HefferNaomi, Ri Digital Intern and PhD student @UniofBath where I study multisensory perception 👁️👂
I'm taking over @Ri_Science this morning to talk about the power of biological motion #perception #emotion #psychology #neuroscience
Motion is an extremely powerful social signal that we use to attribute intentions to others. From the still image we see only simple shapes, but by adding motion, we automatically start attributing emotions and purposes to the ‘characters’.
To me, the large triangle seemed like a bit of a bully😡, the small triangle a victim😱, and the circle wanted to help but was hiding in fear. This just shows the vast amount of social information we can ascertain from simple motion.

-A interview of a antisemitisem scientist-

"In polls, many #Germans are annoyed by the thematization of the #Holocaust: One third is annoyed that the crimes committed against the #Jews are still held up today. And 41 percent think that #Jews talk about it too often ..."
The feeling of being held up is apparently present in many, they feel attacked. It is quite paradoxical: Although in surveys almost 90 percent say that belonging to #Germany is the knowledge of the history of National Socialism. Nevertheless, especially the #youth find today:
My #grandfather was already no longer involved, at some point is also good times. Interestingly, this is not just a #German phenomenon, but in the whole of #Europe, such as in #Poland and #Hungary, but also in #Spain or the #UnitedKingdom.

Time for the jellybean illusion! You don’t actually need a jellybean, just some type of chewable candy, preferably with different colors & flavors. M&M’s: NOT be a good choice, gold bears: fine.

#teaching #classroom #Scichat #STEMeducation #illusion #perception #scicomm
Get comfy, get your candy out, and choose two pieces of different colors/flavors. Pick up one of those two, it doesn’t matter which.
Now, STEP 1: PINCH YOUR NOSE so you can no longer breathe in or out through your nose. You can use a swimmers pincher or even a clothespin too, but using two fingers is probably more comfortable and pretty easy.

@freegroucho @VictorCleaner Do you know about this?
images.app.goo.gl/P5LA8J8d4rSNbs…
Most (almost all) Antarctica volcanoes are positioned on the West side which loosing ice. The other bigger part is actually gaining ice. We do not know why. So a GW "proof" that CO2 is responsible for this is not a verified theory.
@freegroucho @VictorCleaner Some glaciers are melting, some glaciers are are gaining (like recently in Greenland.
In middle age Viking's Greenland (time of Maunder's minimum) was full of green pastures, hence the name.

J.J. #Gibson on non-visual #perception, #proprioception, and the importance of #movement for #selfperception: “The point (...) is that information about the #self is multiple and that all kinds are picked up concurrently.” #SummerReading
We need vision for movement. Walking: feeling contact of feet w/ ground isn’t everything! “You might think that the contact of(...) the foot with a surface (...) is specified by a mechanical impression of skin, by touch (...). Nevertheless there is optical specification.” #Gibson
Further, the “moving #self and the unmoving world are reciprocal aspects of the same #perception.” - - J.J. #Gibson on the specifying of limb #movement
