I am not an Investigating officer nor a lawyer to tell it confidently that it’s a suicide or a murder.

Sushant was a drug addict or not?

Rhea is the culprit or not?

I am just a SSRian and a normal human with some common sense.

#Plants4SSR
In today’s thread I will tell what is it that doesn’t make me believe the theories going around me.

There are too many allegations on Sushant now and I hope everything wil be crystal clear to you all at the end of the thread.

I don't know who needs to hear this, but providing examples of being nice or supportive to women in your own family does not make on a feminist or pro-woman nor does that make you anti-racist regarding POC or WOC or BIPOC. The "I am a good person" is at the root of much harm.
Okay, I do know who needs to hear this and this was not really a subtweet because the individuals who fit this description do not use Twitter. But there is more than one individual who may or may not need to have some deep reflection on what "I am a good person" says about ego.
This is from Australia. If in these times, as a not BIPOC, certainly as a not Black person in America, you are asking "Are you calling me a racist?!" (when that word not uttered but, yes, #implicitbias exists and racism is a #public health crisis)....

#History of Pakistan’s Proxy War in #Kashmir
#Thread
1.
1.Three unsuccessful wars of 1947,1965 & 1971 made #Pakistan realize that annexation of #Kashmir was a tough nut to crack through conventional wars after which it resorted to its tried & tested means of Proxy war... ImageImage
2.
..which it had used in #Afghanistan (Operation GIBRALTAR) with a strategy of 'bleeding India by a thousand cuts'. However, the action started in #Kashmir only after 1987 due to its involvement in #Afghanistan
3.
The late President Zia-ul-Haq code named the #Proxy war as Operation #TOPAC as it was his brain child for annexation of Kashmir through an amalgam of subterfuge, subversion, force & religious fundamentalism.. Image

The sought future of "#healthcare" - "The #WEF, the int. org. for public-private cooperation, hosts the #PrivateSector Constituency of #UHC2030 & provides a platform for interaction for all UHC2030 partners & health systems networks."

Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai. A #Thread

With #Geelani being sidelined, will the newly elected #Hurriyat Chief Sehrai make any difference, those who closely follow him say that he is even more hardliner than Geelani & will drown #Kashmir further into chaos
(1/11) Image
Born in 1944 in Tickipora #Lolab, #Kupwara, his forefathers migrated to this part of #Kashmir before partition hailing from the Khans of #Pakistan. He is a staunch Pro-Pakistan supporter & vehemently advocates Kashmir's annexation to #Pakistan
(2/11) Image
Sehrai did his initial education from #Sogam & B.A from #AMU. Like many other #Kashmiris, he was taught by #Kashmiri #pandit teachers. One of his childhood teachers was Gopi Nath Kaul..

These are the #stories of #math that we celebrate, amplify and make central to the idea of #maths as a #objective #neutral #culture-free subject. #Math can do no #harm, and the #logical “pure math” thinking of #Mathematicians is worthy of emulation. But... 1/x

Simon touches on a key point in his first item.

As with #falsifiability in #science, in #practice '#ethics' only work in the context of a #profession or #community *from which one can be #excluded*.

Those wishing to be #trusted as #ethical must stop issuing '#principles' and...
..setting up #EthicsBoards like @Google's or private courts like @Facebook's @OversightBoard (both demonstrating how poorly #BigTech grasps basic concepts like #justice, let alone #ethics, and how both - as #sovereign powers - have utterly misconceived #community) and start to...
...genuinely #professionalise.

Not in the shitty, self-serving, #cartel-like fashion of many companies & industry bodies in tech, advertising - and yes, DP & privacy - but in broader, deeper, more #connected ways that *could* deliver the #trustworthy #institutions of the future.

Professionalism in #Public #Sector

[ A Long Thread ]

One of the biggest misnomer in #Pakistan is that public sector doesn’t work.

It does, but how it does is the problem. Lack of professionalism and professional ethics are one of the main reasons for the malaise.
We don’t talk about it, for the fear of retribution. What actually happens in the lybrinth is not only depicts irony but also a self defeatist mindset.

There are 4 categories of officials, broadly speaking:

1. High officials
2. Mid Careerists
3. Junior Most
4. Support Staff
Work disturbtion in public sector though is very structured but not everyone works. There are few known deserters, known procrastinators and one lot who are always at work.

The later ones are who keep this country afloat. Without getting into what they do or what’s the quality

1/20 unfinished thoughts...#online Church has been dismissed for years: a ‘last resort’, a ‘pale imitation’, ‘only just better than nothing’ are 3 verdicts I've heard. Some say how much they #mourn the loss of meeting in church buildings. It's a heavy loss, a significant sorrow.
2/20 But, as with many who #grieve, in our sorrow we must be careful not to #wound others, as #mainstream #church struggles to inhabit what has been the lived, continuous (sometimes total) experience of #disabled #christians, Christians with #mentalhealth struggles...
3/20 ...Christians who are #carers for those who can't #access #Church as we knew it & Christians who work shifts. In our thrashing about in this new arena, we should be careful not to push out those whose #spiritual #home this has been for a long time...

1. from the very beginning of this tragedy, #COVID, I have tried to alert you on how #COVID will be used to build a #MassSurveillance #Leviathan which will make the 9/11 #massSurveillance programs appear modest, if compared to this new Leviathan
2. never before #HealthData were integrated into #massSurveillance: not even the #NSA had tried it, as far as we know. BUT now with this huge tragedy, #COVID, we risk such #massSurveillance Leviathan.But there is further huge risk: the future of our #PUBLIC #NationalHealthSystems
3.if you are lucky(as I am)to live in a country with a PUBLIC #NationalHealthSystem,you have to wonder what is going to happen with these new "APPs" tracing #COVID and in some cases acquiring your #HealthData.Will #Amazon,#Google,#Palantir seize our PUBLIC #NationalHealthSystems?

India's first Prime Minister famously said "Don't spare me Shankar" (a leading Indian cartoonist). But #Gandhi did not spare Shankar ;) I wrote about this in my book Caricaturing Culture.

#Gandhi tapped the power of #cartoons & #public communication early into his journalistic career in #SouthAfrica. Cartoons could be Satyagraha (truth force). His #newspaper the Indian Opinion published and interpreted British cartoons.

The #PradhanMantriFasalBimaYojana is a govt-sponsored crop insurance scheme meant to provide #insurance coverage to farmers in the event of crop failure due to natural calamities, pests & diseases. Read about the deeply flawed nature of this #policy & it's actual beneficiaries👇 Image
An #RTI inquiry reveals #insurance companies are the main benefeciaries of these schemes. Without making any financial #investment,these companies have raked in a massive profit of Rs.15,795 crore in the 2 yrs since the implementation of #PMFBY. #disastercapitalism @NaomiAKlein
While the farmers’ wait for increase in #income continues, the profit of #insurance firms increased by 1.5x in just 1yr of the introduction of the PMFBY. While #profits of these companies are skyrocketting, the no. of insured #farmers is rapidly declining. bit.ly/2IM0XsR
