Images from one of the happiest projects of my career - 12 Eps of #MatchParty on #CricbuzzPlus - that's 54 hrs of conversation with some of the most talented people and crazy cricket fans in India - @joybhattacharj @beastieboy07 @SaiyamiKher @Md_Irfan17 and @AbijitG (Contd 1/n)
This motley crew was put together by @Shirsh9 who dared to attempt something like this. Thank you, Shirsh for trusting me with this project. If only you had recorded our ear piece conversations! That'd make for some mad BTS audio content! ;) His team also includes...
a fellow pun-lover @kallol_ss who I have fond memories of working with in the past! He'd quietly send content inputs on Whatsapp while also working on #CricbuzzLive! The rest of the @cricbuzz team also brought their A-game to the party every time!

Here's wishing Happy #WalongDay to the heroes of 6 KUMAON.
They went to their deaths heroically & steadfastly, without any fuss this day in 1962.
Just so that a General could please a PM on his birthday.
This day in 1962 - The only attack of the war by Indian army was launched - As a birthday gift from a general to a PM.
A heavy price was paid by the Kumaonis of 6 Kumaon that night.
Denied even one day to prepare for the attack, they went in as ordered.
Out of the over 200 men that had gone into the attack, only 90 returned.

Towards inclusive education
A necessary transformation
Australian government report

Yet another plan lost to the exploitation of greedy lobbiests?

Nobody is "eligible or ineligible" for inclusion
All diversity is welcomed…
What other protected trait owned & defined by those who *don't* have that trait?
Imagine gay men had to get a "certificate of gayness" from a straight man, for "accommodation" in an uninclusive environment?
A woman get a certificate of womanhood to be "accommodated" from a man?
Australia claims to be all about inclusion and fairness these days?
So why is including diversity so hard?
Why are there whole industries that profit from defining us in deficit terms?
And saying we are unreliable?
Why do we need certificatation from people who *aren't us*?

Martyrs of Chhattisgarh Police - 12 Oct Image
On this day 33 years ago, Hav Pandurang Kakfale, deployed with his battalion in IPKF, was one of the section commanders of the company tasked to assault and capture Maruthnamadam town. Image
The enemy offered stiff resistance, and Kakfale was soon wounded.
Unmindful of his injuries, he continued leading his section and personally destroyed a bunker housing a machine gun that had stalled their advance.

‘The Trojan Horse Scandal and the Problem of Equalities in Britain Today’.

The event examined the scandal from a broad range of perspectives, engaging with debates on #equalities, #liberalism, and #Britishness.…
It also provided an opportunity to discuss and generate a dialogue about the significance of the 'Trojan Horse’ scandal and the duty placed on schools after the scandal to promote Fundamental British Values (FBV) in the promotion of #democracy.
Speakers analysed how both are reproducing narratives of racial discrimination & inequalities in a context that is informed by minoritising communities, #problematising specific religious #values, & essentialising the signification of social, religious, & cultural identities.

…I am so grateful he opened his heart to us at the cemetery where Betty is. He told me a part of her leg bone was found 3 blocks f/the World Trade Center.

Betty was the flight attendant on American Airlines flight 11 who made the 1st call about the chaos on board. #911Memorial
For those who haven’t heard the call, you’ll hear her bravery. Her calm. Her composure.

Harry told me later he can tell there is some fear in her voice but she had the determination to keep her passengers & team safe. #911Anniversary

Walked past "Perfect Crime" theater tonight and saw this quote from my 2005 piece outside: "As the illusions reveal themselves, a confusion and sense of terror slowly build." Left out is next sentence: "Or at least that's what should happen if the production wasn't so lethargic."
Honestly, I walked right into that one. #respect
Also funny --> My "But if you stick with the story -- and considering the turgid performances, that's asking a lot --it does make sense" got edited into "If you stick with the story, it does make sense."

Epeydir hepimizin gıpta ile takip ettiği Rektproof’un $500 ile başlayan macerasının detaylarını burada incelemeye çalışacağım 🙂

Umarım bazı arkadaşlar için ilham bazıları içinse güzel bir kaynak olur


Öncelikle şunu belirtmek lazım ki RektProof bu işe şu motto ile başlıyor:

“Yüksek risk, yüksek kazanç” 💯

Bunu yaparken de tabiki bakiyesinin küçük bir yüzdesini bu challenge'a ayırdığını unutmamak lazım ⚠️

İlk işlemde yüksek risk kapsamında bakiyesinin %20’sini riske edip -0.25R’da manuel stop olarak bakiyesini %5 eritiyor.

Böyle bir challenge'a eksi ile başlamak psikolojik olarak zorluğuna zorluk katmış bence

🧑‍🏭👩‍🏭Aujourd'hui est une journée de mobilisation pour certains #streamers et #viewers :
#ADayOffTwitch est une tentative de faire prendre conscience à @Twitch des problèmes de #harcèlements et de l’absence d’outils pour lutter contre

Un ptit thread

#TwitchDoBetter #DayOffTwitch Image
L'outil de #Raid de #Twitch est performant et peut être utilisé de pour plein de bonne chose (partager une commu, faire découvrir des chaines ...) et certains l'utilise pour harceler.
Ok, ils pourraient le faire sans l'outil Twitch mais moins facilement.
Les cibles de ces harcèlements le sont pour avoir un sexe (des femmes essentiellement), une minorité ethnique, une identité sexuelle ou une sexualité différent.

Souvenons-nous qu'il n'y a pas d'arc-en-ciel d'une seule couleur ...

It takes a very STEELY CONVICTION to tell someone that you LOVE DEEPLY, that as much as you LOVE them, you’re not afraid to walk away from that relationship. Because staying in conformity w/ God’s purpose for your life is of paramount importance to you.
To get a wee bit personal here, I’ve had to say goodbye to several relationships w/ very high profile, prolific & well-to-do men. The exact minute that it became abundantly clear that our values did not align.

Entendu aujourd’hui : « dans trois semaines, beaucoup de gens auront des morts dans leurs familles, peut-être que certains discours changeront ».
Aujourd’hui au marché : « je viens de perdre deux personnes, ma femme trois personnes, zafè maladi ta la ka tchoué nou ».

Si seulement mes amis antivaxx CSP+ de Terreville, route de Didier et Cluny pouvaient entendre ce qui se passe…
Il y a une heure, une amie :

- Zaka, je viens de rentrer de l’hopital. Mon père est…
- À cause du … ?
- Oui. Covid. Et il ne voulait pas y aller.

Elle a déjà perdu son grand-père cette semaine. Même raison. Tout va bien.

It's so beautiful and nicely worded that I just couldn't resist sharing it.

#Difference between a #Guru and a #Teacher!!!

1. A teacher takes responsibility for your growth.
A Guru makes you responsible for your growth.
2.A teacher gives you things you do not have and require.
A Guru takes away things you have and do not require.

3. A teacher answers your questions.
A Guru questions your answers.

4. A teacher requires obedience and discipline from the pupil.
A Guru requires trust and humility from the pupil.

5. A teacher clothes you and prepares you for the outer journey.
A Guru strips you naked and prepares you for the inner journey.

6. A teacher is a guide on the path.
A Guru is a pointer to the way.

#Respect #gratitude #Thankful

In September of 2005, on the first day of school, Martha Cothren, a History teacher at Robinson High School in Little Rock, USA, did something not to be forgotten.
On the first day of school, with the permission of the school superintendent, the principal and the building supervisor, she removed all of the desks in her classroom.
When the first period kids entered the room they discovered that there were no desks. 'Ms. Cothren, where are our desks?'

She replied, 'You can't have a desk until you tell me how you earn the right to sit at a desk.'

Hmm. Knowing a little about newspapers, it's quite possible David himself didn't write the headline and blurb - though the thrust of his review is clear, the direct reference to sex as a "social construct" is Joyce's quote: Image
I'm not so sure that isn't a #StrawMan; an extreme position being characterised as if it were the nub of the debate. I don't know, but can't imagine many would vehemently disagree with these commonly held definitions:

(Though I expect there are nuances.)
I first encountered grassroots #trans groups in the '00s when campaigning against @ukhomeoffice #IDcards & the #NationalIdentityRegister.

They were generous, tolerant & open - explaining to someone with no knowledge the many challenges of #transition, including living with an...

#OnThisDay 1839 In one of the most famous revolts by enslaved people ever, Joseph Cinque and over 50 Africans seized the ship AMISTAD and killed the captain.

Who was Joseph Cinque? What was this about?

Also known as Sengbe Pieh the name I will used for him here, he was born in present-day Sierra Leone in 1813/1814. He was a rice farmer and trader, + at the time of his capture he had a wife +3 children. In 1839 slave traders captured him as he was working in the rice fields.
He was taken to Lomboko off of the Gallinas Coast. He, with countless others, were sent to Havana, Cuba to be sold into slavery. Pieh and 52 men, women, and children were purchased by two Spanish plantation owners and boarded onto the schooner Amistad.
