🇺🇸 1) Začnu netypicky - víte, jak vypadá americký záchod? Já byla před lety překvapená. Splachování má silný tah (princip víru) a vcucne vodu hlučně dovnitř. Vzhledem k tomu, že nepoužívají vůbec štětky, mísa se naplní vodou celkem vysoko.
🇺🇸 2) Až na nepříjemnou obsluhu párkrát jsem z Amíků obě naše cesty nabyla dojmu, že se jedná o přátelské lidi. Ptali se, odkud jsme, zajímali, kam se chystáme či měli chuť se naučit pár našich frází. Moje cynické srdce to velmi obměkčilo a nesouhlasím, že jsou všichni falešní.❤️
🇺🇸 3) V NYC, ale i mimo něj je poměrně dobrá síť možností, kam si zdarma odskočit na WC (a ani nemusíte nic kupovat) a wifi. Původně bylo v plánu si každý koupit e-sim; nakonec bohatě stačila jedna moje (1 GB/týden s Airalo appkou) - wifi chytíte doslova všude, i na ulici.

"'All That Breathes' is an ecological film that deals with the relationship between man and bird and the internal emotional struggle between the brothers.

The minute I met them with industrial decay on one side and these regal-looking birds on the other, I immediately sensed it was an inherently cinematic place.
After that, was 3 years of the rigorous long-winded shoot.", says #ShaunakSen about his #Oscars2023 shortlist documentary, #AllThatBreathes.

"My father worked at a small shop on the side of the road, fixing people’s gas stoves and cookers. We lived in Supaul, a small town in Bihar. All we had was a Kacha house, and a mitti ka aangan outside.
We ate the same thing most days — roti, onions, and achaar.⁠

I was bullied by my classmates and would run home crying. On innocently asking my father why he couldn’t work in an office like the others, he would wipe my tears and say,
'Money isn’t everything in life.' But back then, I didn’t realise the value of his words.⁠

While girls in my area went to cooking classes, my father cooked for us. I realised that I had something none of them had — a father who cared about my dreams.

1-6. Many times in the Education sector (18 years & a bit) I was told during interviews "we only gave you an interview because we were told we've got to tick a box that we interviewed a coloured person". I will never forgot those horrible words!.
2. I was told "your over experienced for the role you've applied for, especially for someone of your kind!". I always knew what the reason was, they didnt want someone like me, it was obvious looking at the working enviroment. #southasian #asian #proud
3. I never knew being brown skinned, having a culture and religion was a crime, till I joined a profession that almost finished me off!. But I aint going nowhere! I'll keep standing my ground and building that equality and fairness for others in my position in the profession....

I saw a mouse outside this morning which I had never seen before.

There is much I still don’t know about this specific mouse.

Ignoring all my previous knowledge of mice, I can speculate that it might kill & eat my entire family.

I have cancelled Christmas & bought 300 cats.
Great news:

The cats have arrived.

They are all blind, paralysed and rigged with randomly detonating explosive devices.

But the cat salesman assured me they are safe and effective.

Then he showed me a video of a singer I like saying the same thing.

So I ordered 300 more.

We just found our dog in the driveway with his legs blown off, surrounded by cats.

The vet, kindly paid for by the cat salesman, told us that the injury was almost certainly caused by the mouse.

When will people start to take this mouse threat seriously?

1/ On 3rd December 1971, exactly 50 years ago today, my father, then a young Captain in the Indian Army, commanded the advance Workshop Detachment of the 50 Para Brigade into Bangladesh at Chowgacha heading for Dhaka via Jessore & Khulna.
@adgpi #proud #IndianArmy
2/ Commissioned in 1966, my dad & his many NDA coursemates share tales of fateful events that led up to the 71 war. He lost dear friends that fortnight who he remembers forever; he reflects on the treachery of America then & the strength of Indian leadership against devious Pak
3/ The Pak Army surrendered on 16th December. My dad’s Workshop Detachment was rushed back to support the Western theater near Giddarbaha - Malout, Punjab. And some days later the cease fire was called, leaving the Indian army with having to handle 93,000 Pak prisoners of war.

Great Parents' Night tonight. We're only 5 days in, and it appears that the 8YO is already gaming the homework system. Chip off the ol' block. #proud
Don't let your kids read this, but I basically did - at best - 20% of my homework through 12 yrs of school (without cheating, obvs), and I turned out just fine. Gaming the system is an important skill too - maybe THE MOST important! #slackersFTW
True story: my mom went to some parents' night back in the day & the mom next to her started talking abt all the homework her son did, and Mom just nodded along & then came home all mad & asked "X does 3 hrs of homework per night and you do like 15 mins how is that possible" LOL

These giant “scissors in space” point to the location of a supermassive black hole of 55 Million solar masses in the heart of the giant radio galaxy Centaurus A! Brand new image with unprecedented resolution by the @ehtelescope and our group @Radboud_Uni…
In Centaurus A we do not see a ring like in M87, because the black hole is smaller. We see the plasma jet shooting out from the center and that looks remarkably like the jet in M87. This points to universal similarities of black hole jets!
Centaurus A is huge & close. It is the brightest extragalactic radio source in the sky. The radio emission stretches 1.5 Million light years across. With radio eyes you would see a structure 200x larger than the full moon. All originates in a tiny spot in the heart of the galaxy.

1. Last night I finished #ItsASin @russelldavies63, the director, amazing cast have given us a beautiful gift with #ItsASin. The 80s music, the politics, the friendship. Perfect. Fun but also serious. By episode 3 (no spoilers) I was in bits. Tears continued until the end #La
2. I’ve never worried sex could result in a death sentence. Even as the child of an alcoholic, have never had that sense of loneliness, nor fear of dying alone. Nor had my life stigmatised. While HIV can affect everyone, #ItsASin demonstrates why it lives in the LGBT experience
3. Thankfully the HIV/AIDS of the #ItsASin period is very different to HIV today – it is not a death sentence, those diagnosed early have normal life expectancy, those on treatment CANT PASS IT ON, and we have a HIV prevention drug #PrEP to help people stay negative.

I am #grateful for the opportunity given by #IWS_Network to share my story, struggles and success in the voices without frontiers (VWF).
My name is Betelhem, most people call me Betty and I prefer it that way. I was born 27 years ago to a young couple in AddisAbeba, the capital of #Ethiopia. #IWSVoices 1/n Image

1/n Some reflections on #BAME inequality #covid19 and #NHSBirthday. Today is the 72nd birthday of the #NHS - founded upon a set of principles that we hold dear of universal access to healthcare, free at the point of delivery at a time when the nation was impoverished due to war
2/n A few weeks earlier, the Empire #Windrush arrived in the UK bringing the first of the “windrush generation” to help rebuild Britain, including the new #NHS. Things were not quite as promised for them.… #Covid19 #NHSBirthday #BAME

As #bioinformatician #biostatistician #DataScientist, have you ever felt you've done lots of work, yet achieved nothing? here is how to change that! A thread 👇 1/n
1 - #document rigorously your computing work - same as bench scientists do on experiments. Document your initial thoughts on data, your decisions, tests, issues, how you solved them, how you tried various tools, how you picked one over others. These are all *achievements*. n/1
2 - #track your tasks and efforts - make it quantitative. Write a weekly checklist on GitHub wiki; update and check it off at the end of a day. Version control your codes; push meaningful commits. Be aware of your time spent on each task. Numbers may be boring, but effective. 2/n

Back to back telephone conferences, briefings and work on #DWP matters today to ensure we can support the UK at this time.

Not sure what some don’t get about this tough time in our nations history: have a watch - it’s not complicated + really matters: 1/
Mega effort being made by Team #DWP civil servants, #jobcentreplus #pensioncentre + support staff all across the #UK to make this work.

A positive thread on the need for #aspiration for the #future of our #food & #farming industry...

🚜 🐓 🐄 🐑 🍎 🥦 🌾 🌳 🐝

[1/9] Image

We’ve a lot to be #proud of in 🇬🇧 - but we can #aspire to #better.

More productive. More tech-savvy. More collaborative. More environmentally proactive.

Change is coming. We have to embrace it & lead the #change. Consumers respect us - that’s a big asset ✅

[2/9] Image

With #NetZero we have to step up. It will be difficult; hard decisions will have to be made. But we must show #leadership.

We can’t complain about the consequences of #ClimateChange if we don’t play our part.

And only Ag can act as a carbon sink 💨 🌱
