کچھ عرصہ سے فیسبک پر ایسی پوسٹس تواتر کے ساتھ دکھ رہی ہیں کہ میں یتیم لڑکی سے شادی کرنا چاہتا ہوں
دکھ درد کی ماری ایسی لڑکی کی تلاش میں ہوں جس کے ماضی نے اسے توڑ دیا ہو وغیرہ وغیرہ
یہ سب ڈرامے بازی ہے
شکار کے لیے پھیلایا جانے والا جال ہے
اگر اتنی ہی ہمدردی ہے
#socialmedia

تو سوشل میڈیا پر ڈرامہ بازی کرنے سے بہتر ہے یتیم خانے/ دارالامان جائیں
وہاں آپ کی نیکی کی خواہش بھی پوری ہوجائیگی اور اُن یتیم/ بے سہارا لڑکیوں کے نکاح کا انتظام بھی ہوجائے گا
یہ لڑکیاں واقعتاً یتیم اور دکھوں کی ماری ہوتی ہیں
ان کے ماضی نے انہیں واقعی توڑ دیا ہوتا ہے

فیسبک/ٹیوئٹر پر اگر کوئی حقیقتاََ یہ نیکی کرنا چاہتا ہے تو اپنے اردگرد محلے، علاقے میں نظر دوڑائے تو اسے ایسے لوگ مل جائینگے جو وہ سوشل میڈیا پر تلاش کر رہا ہے
اگر ایسی کوئی پوسٹ/ ٹیوئٹ آپ کو نظر آئے تو اسے دارالامان کا راستہ دکھا دیں

اک کالم میں پڑھا
سوائے بچے پیدا کرنے کہ یہ قوم کچھ بھی پیدا نہی کررہی
نہ کوئ نئی کتاب لکھ رہا
نہ شاعری کررہا
نہ کوئ کام کی فلم بناسکتے ہم
کپڑوں کے بھی تھان بناکر بیچتے
ناشتے کے سیرلز تک نہیں بناتے
گندم چاول مکئ باہر بیچتے
اور باہر سے ناشتے کے لیے سیریلز بنے بنائے منگواتے

اک زمانہ تھا مچلز کی جوبلی اور کینڈی لینڈ کی چاکلیٹ NOW اور BP کی چاکلیٹس کھاتے ہوتے تھے

"The emergence of #government as organized #violence-cum-#robbery"
SFI Seminar by @CoenTeulings (@UniUtrecht)

Follow this 🧵 for highlights + slides! Image
"What's the motivation of this paper? We've seen in most of these locations that there was an #emergence of some form of hierarchical #government [correlated with] a monopoly of #violence and increased #inequality [and] most people lost."

اگر آپکو اپنی بیوی بدصورت لگتی ہے اسکے چہرے پہ ، ہونٹوں ہاتھ اور بازووں پہ بال ہیں تو ان بالوں کو تھریڈنگ ویکسنگ کے ذریعے صاف کیا جاسکتا ہے
اگر بیگم کا چہرہ چکنا چمکتا محسوس نہیں ہوتا
تو چہرے کو نکھارنے کے لئے ہزار دو ہزار کا فیشل اور بلیچ ہوتا ہے

اگر بیوی کے چہرے پر رونق نہیں ہے تو دودھ دہی اور پھل کھلائیں
یقین کریں آپکی بیوی بھی دیکھنے لائق ہوجائیگی
اگر اتنی گنجائش نہیں تو یہاں وہاں منہ مارنے سے گریز کریں
کیونکہ جن چکنی چمیلیوں کو خوبصورت سمجھ کے انکی مدح سرائی کرتے ہیں
وہ بھی اتنے خرچوں کے بعد ہی دیکھنے لائق بنتی ہیں

خدا بیٹیاں زبردستی دے دیتا ہے ورنہ جوڑے تو بیٹوں کی خواہش میں ہم بستری کرتے ہیں
پھر وہ مزید کہنے لگی
پہلی بیٹی پیدا ہوئی تو ہم نے
اُس کا نام تانیہ رکھا جو بگڑ کر تُونی ہوگیا
پھر ہم نے دوبارہ کوشش کی
دوبارہ بیٹی پیدا ہوئی تو ہم نے اُس کا نام اللہ مافی رکھا

یہ کیسا نام ہے؟
نام کا مطلب تھا کہ اللہ ہمیں معاف کردے
پھر ؟
تیسری کوشش کی
رب نے حج والے دن بیٹا دیا اُس کا نام حاجی رکھا
مگر بی بی! بیٹیاں اللہ کی رحمت ہوتیں

اُس تجلی کا کیا حاصل جو موسی کو بے ہوش کردے
کوہِ طور جل کر راکھ ہوجائے
اُس نے میری آخری بات کا جواب دیا

"The Evolution of Strangers and Foreigners"

🧵 Today's SFI Seminar by @DoctorBugs (@Smithsonian)

santafe.edu/events/life-an…

cc @templeton_fdn
First, a loop back to his LAST (2020) SFI Seminar on 3D structure of living systems from biofilms to rainforest canopies:


And his #ComplexityPodcast episode on ideas from that talk and this one:
complexity.simplecast.com/episodes/52-Z7…
"People often think of societies as cooperative, but some societies are NOT very cooperative. I prefer to put the focus on them as groups."

"Societies are just one aspect of belonging. There are groups *within* societies & that's what psychologists mostly focus on."

1/6 I think that a #DeSci economy that covers all aspects of #academia in one ecosystem (#publications, #peerreview, and #funding) is more valuable and more likely to succeed in the long run than a project that covers only one or two of these aspects. Why? ...
2/6 Because of #networkeffects. All three parts of academia co-depend and influence each other. There are positive network externalities to solving problems in publishing, peer review, and funding to other parts of #academia. ...

BRAIN UPGRADING.
"To upgrade oneself, the object to work on is our brain. The process may include unlearning to learn and learning to unlearn. Whichever is the case the #brain can never be over exploited.

In every ideal #society, learning is required for universal relevance and/
acceptance. Anyone who cease to learn cease to grow and signed in for demotion or #stagnancy.

Engaged in a discussion with one of my sons this morning, I made him realized there are ways we learn without alerting our #teacher in quote, so learning may be cheap atimes./

@SIAF_NG
However, active learning comes by deep interactions between the master and the learner. It's therefore extremely tedious and most time not #achievable to be a master of what is not deeply learnt or handed over to one by a sacrificial #learning act.

The mind/mana is denoted by the Moon. The inherent nature of the Mind is to desire and needs an anchor for guidance for fulfillment. The planets that give Gati or direction to the mana are the ones in 2/12 and/or/ planet(s) conjoining and/or Kendras to it (Moon). #JyotishKatti Image
The absence of ALL the above can denote a mind that has no fixed desire. Is this good? For spirituality, this can be a plus. However, for mundane matters, this can be a -ve. This is called Kemadruma Yoga. Is there any remedy for this?
Before I get to the remedy we need to take a deep dive. What is this all about? It is for a very important reason, that the maharishis have given importance to Chandra Lagna. The chart viewed from Moon as Lagna shows our emotional makeup. The quality of various responses.

Although conspiracy thinking is of all times, we now face a different kind of #conspiracy theories: conspiracy without theory. 1/
The increased visibility of conspiracy thinking at the time of the COVID-19 pandemic seems to be partly explained by the need for certainty in uncertain times. But there is more going. 2/
There is a distinction between classical conspiracy thinking and the new conspiracy thinking. Classical conspiracy thinking aims to offer an alternative explanation for a major event, sometimes by following journalistic or even scientific standards. 3/

حق مہر کا اسلام سے تعلق بس اتنا ہے کہ یہ اک عرب ریت تھی جسے بہت سے اور ریت رواج کی طرح اسلام نے اپنا لیا اور جاری رکھا
ایسی رسوم دنیا کے اور علاقوں میں بھی تھیں اور ہیں

شب زفاف کو زوجہ کو ودیعت کیے جانے والے

Europe has made a huge and far-reaching political gift to Russia with its own hands. Sanctions have divided the entire Western (and above all European) world into anti-Russian and pro-Russian. And Russia has done nothing for this. Everything was done by the European authorities
themselves.
The pro-Russian community is still in the minority. And it represents to a greater extent countries that are heavily dependent on Russian energy raw materials. But trends will change, and the secret will become clear. Anti-Russian sentiments are
popular among radicals. While pragmatists and realists firmly secure the label of "agents of the Kremlin". The fact that a rational and reasonable vector has been and remains almost the main approach of the Russian authorities in building partnerships with European countries all

In Feb 2020 #SARSCOV2 #COVID19 was
risk to the entire #society

In Apr 2022, COVID-19
it is #individual risk.

Why there shouldn’t be any universal restrictions?

Why schools should remain open?

Why masks should be voluntary?

Context of arguments is #India

A thread 🧵

1/n
In Feb 2022, #SARS CoV2 was a new or novel virus.

Everyone was susceptible as no one had prior immunity.

The risk by age & other factors was unknown & unpredictable.

The only way was ‘universal restriction’
to slow down the transmission, prepare health services

2/n
And developing scientific and epidemiological understanding.

The precautions such as
physical distancing and
face masks also has to be mandatory.

All of These were new to people.

Citizen not following these whd hv increased the risk to other, which was unknown.

17. Hi, this is @akgungor_c again. Let’s come back to where we had left: Post-disaster controversies… These are indeed closely associated with how we individually and socially (re)construct the #catastrophe.
18. A disaster is the outcome(s) of a physical occurrence as well as how we perceive and process them. Like any “event”, for every disaster, there are as many accounts as the number of people who’ve been exposed to it.
19. Individual #narratives of a disaster are the expression of how we position ourselves vis-a-vis the catastrophe and its effects on us, in a sense, fabricating our own #reality.

1. Hello Radix’ers, @akgungor_c here. I’m glad to be with you this week. It will be a pleasure for me to post here. My thing is to generate and “mobilize” information & knowledge to assist organizations and communities with respect to emergencies & disasters.
2. An eternity ago, I defended a Ph.D. thesis in political science in which I had mainly focused on #disaster and #sociopolitical #change. At that time, I thought I would not spend a single more minute on that text but instead leave it to collect dust in the French archives.
3. And after I walked away from academia, I literally forgot about it for a long period, until a couple of years ago. In fact, I’m catching myself -more and more- thinking about some of the conclusions I had drawn back then.

I've been thinking a lot about the occupation/protests in Ottawa and have been inspired by work being done by colleagues and others to understand the dynamics of public opinion and the impact on political behaviour.

#FreedomConvoy2022 #cdnpoli #society #mrx #polling #canada
And I think our political future will depend upon having a really good understanding of the opinion landscape.

This is especially true for those who lead orgs in business, media, and government. As I'll show you, you don't see the world in the same way as everyone else.
In preparing for a briefing for a client on tax fairness, affordability, and public policy in Canada, I went back to a survey we did for @PIPSC_IPFPC and @broadbent in July 2021.

A lot of the same concerns I see today in polling existed then...

Being a mother and a teacher offers me a great opportunity to help my daughters & students shape their futures. Unfortunately sometimes the decision isn’t in their hands nor mine. Today Im going to share the story of my dear student Fatima.
Fatima was one of my brilliant students, she was delightful & energetic, aspiring to become a lawyer. She was full of hopes and dreams that she wanted to pursue.
Suddenly Fatima was absent from class for a while, I was worried about her especially that she wouldn’t miss classes+

This is one thread on how the media, conglomerates like Disney and others sexualize childhood and children to make them more profitable consumers.
