The #ShivSena was launched on 19 June 1966 by #BalThackeray. Its initial targets were #SouthIndians. The genesis of the Sena had its roots in a similar anti-South Indian campaign by his father #PrabodhankarThackeray in 1922 Thread:

Keshav Sitaram Thackeray was a journalist, author and social reformer. He was referred to as Prabodhankar Thackeray because of his periodical 'Prabodhan' in which he took on casteism and obscurantism.
The Shiv Sena’s birth had its roots in a campaign launched by Prabodhankar through his Prabodhan in 1922.

If you're interested in abortion numbers post-Dobbs, this thread is for you 🧵
(I'm going to reference some sources, which I'll hyperlink at the bottom of the thread, FYI)
In February I compiled a bunch of data from sources including Texas Health & Human Services, Texas Policy Evaluation Project, the Journal of the American Medical Association, & the US Census Bureau in order to figure out what abortions in Texas looked like post-Dobbs.
Since virtually all the abortion clinics in TX shut down, the obvious question for many would be, "What abortions? It's illegal now. Right?"


I was looking specifically for data on out-of-state abortions and mail-order abortions, and what the data suggested was tragic.

What beliefs do politically intolerant people have?

Are politically tolerant people more or less concerned about political conflict than their intolerant neighbours?

We conducted survey research to address these questions.

Here's what we found.

#politics #immigration Image

We asked people how irritated they'd be if a member of their most opposed political party was dating a member of their family, their neighbor, co-worker, or local elected official.

Avg answer = tolerance score. We limited this sample to most and least tolerant.

"The United States government should provide financial
support to people in other countries who are in need."

The most intolerant group was more likely to agree than the least intolerant. Image

Hi All,

I've recently completed a free online course on leadership from Coursera. Its course curriculum has been designed by IIM-A!

Though I came to know about various aspects of leadership through this course, I still perceive it as a completely different ballgame altogether.
Instead of what management experts and leadership gurus feel—no I'm not saying they are completely wrong—I've just a different way of seeing things.

My perspective on leadership is slightly different.
If you've read this post so far, please bear with me for a minute or two to clarify my viewpoints on leadership.

For your help, I'll provide my perspective in bullet points so that you can understand it better.

Here is this Week’s Market Wrap 'Politics Returns' written by @shyamsek

A Thread (1/n)

#stockmarket #investments #politics #personalfinance #marketwrap
The markets have intense spells when politics prevails over everything else in directing sentiment. Closer to every general election, this trend returns to haunt the markets. (2/n)

#markets #indiangovernment #elections
But, the ability of politics to drive sentiment is influenced by how much the outcome of the election will drive change. If change is likely to be significant and for the better, the markets can run up ahead of elections. (3/n)

Hello Poster lovers!

Today is Sunday, so why don't we learn something about social rights?

I researched two significant movements in history that used vintage posters as a tool to bring attention to their cause:
- 'I Am a Man '
- The women's rights movement.
Let's dive in! Image
The "I Am a Man" movement emerged in Memphis, TN in 1968, with African American sanitation workers demanding better pay and safer working conditions. The workers marched with signs bearing the words "I Am a Man," asserting their humanity and dignity in the face of discrimination. Image
One iconic poster from the "I Am a Man" movement features the phrase "Honor King: End Racism!", symbolizing resistance and solidarity. The poster was created to promote a march that took place in Memphis in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. after his assassination. #MLK #Posters Image

🧂PSA - As a social worker, I see firsthand how #politics affects social policies and communities. If you're a politician who is interested in reviewing policy, learning more about #MentalHealth, or how to help the communities you represent - let's chat.
I am seeing too many statements from politicians about mental health and it's either inaccurate or woefully ignorant. Some of them want to be misleading on purpose but I challenge their opponents to increase their own knowledge and confidence when speaking on these issues.
Social workers are trained to look at issues from a holistic approach and can provide data-driven insights. We take an evidence-based approach & are held to a strict code of ethics. We're also great communication coaches.

We surveyed ~500 people to investigate.

Here's what we found.

Oppositional Political Group

"Which political group do you think is most different/opposed to your own political views?"

We limited the sample to Republicans and Democrats who selected either the Republican or Democratic parties (N=474).
Political Intolerance

We asked people how irritated they'd be if a member of the political party they most opposed was dating a member of their family, their neighbor, co-worker, or local elected official.

We then averaged their answers to get an overall tolerance score.

🧵How US libertarian think tanks have infiltrated British politics:

1/ In recent years, US libertarian think tanks have been increasingly active in influencing British politics, with a particular focus on promoting a pro-market, deregulatory agenda.
2/ These think tanks, such as the Cato Institute and the Heritage Foundation, have been known for their anti-government and pro-business views, and have played a key role in shaping US policy for decades.
3/ Their influence in British politics has been facilitated by a number of factors, including the increasing globalization of political and economic systems, and the rise of right-wing populist movements.

The dust seems to have settled down. I am referring to the discussion around the #BJP-#AIADMK 2024 poll alliance. Ever since reports of Annamalai’s intention to go alone in 2024 came out and subsequent contradicting statements from some senior BJP leaders, [1/7] 2024 is going to be a significant year in TN politics, this
everyone seems to have understood what Annamalai is thinking. After his meeting with HM in Delhi, he seems to be more assertive and confident. The seniors in the party also seem to have got the message. This is what happens with a strong leader.[2/7]
The questions from #media, statements from #AIADMK leaders, #Twitter trolls, etc. seem to have toned down. AIADMK seems to be on the defensive. the new leader still seems unsure of himself. There is a sense of artificial camaraderie in the AIADMK camp.[3/7]

What impacts a political party's level of infighting? We asked Democrats and Republicans how they felt about the parties in 2019 and 2020. How did the events of those years impact party unity? Here's what we found. 🧵 #politics Image
We asked two samples, one in Fall 2019 and another in Fall 2020, which political group held views most opposed to their own. In our '19 survey, we found that Dems were almost as opposed to their OWN party as they were to the Rep party (top right). Image
~55% of Reps in '19 agreed the Dem Party held the most opposed views. That decreased to ~41% in '20. Which events do you think drove these changes? A lot happened between Fall 2019 and Fall 2020. Image
