Thank you @IWS_Network for giving me the opportunity to share my #story 💜 ! This a part of Voices Without Frontiers program… #IWS #WomenInSTEM #VoicesIWS #ecology #conservation #biodiversity
I was born in #saopaulo, #Brazil’s largest city, very different from the #Amazon Rainforest & Rio! See me and a #samauma, the most famous Amazon tree 🌳
Also me & @IsabelaHissa in front of Sao Paulo’s #MASP (Modern Art Museum) & me and my mom in #Rio! #VoiceIWS @IWS_Network Image
I can say I lived in a great #rainforest because Sao Paulo & most of the coast of Brazil are in the Atlantic Forest 🌴🌺🐍. It is one of the 34 world’s #hotspots of #biodiversity, with more than 1500 plant species and 90% of original area loss. #VoiceIWS @IWS_Network Source: https://www.e-educa...

1/ The journey of @iota [MONSTER THREAD] - From the top 5 token to the top 50 token and why it will at least get back into the top 5.
2/ #IOTA was founded in 2015 with the aim and vision of developing a #DLT protocol in which people and machines, can communicate via data & value tx permissionless, feeless, efficient and with the least technical requirements -
With a high level of security, decentralization…
3/ …and Scalability➡️blockchain trilemma.
They also wanted to develop their own #smartcontracts, #oracles, #identity solutions, etc.

At that time they already attracted the attention of the then much smaller #crypto community.

میں بچپن سے اب تک جنگ اتوار میں ضرورت رشتہ کے اشتہارات لازمی دیکھتی ہوں
مجھے نہ اشتہار کے ذریعے بیاہ کرنا تھا/ نا ہے مگرحالات کا ضرور پتہ لگتا
29 اکتوبر کے اخبار میں شائع شدہ یہ اشتہار دیکھ لیجیے
عمر 35 سال، انٹر، اردو سپیکنگ،آئل فیلڈ میں نچلے درجے کی ملازمت
شادی شدہ
شادی شدہ، بیوی 2 بچے ساتھ، آسٹریلیا، ترکی یا پاکستان میں اچھی ملازمت کے حصول کے لیے دوسری شادی کا خواہشمند ہوں
ترجیح معذور کسی بھی قسم کی، یا بیوہ وغیرہ، حقائق پر یقین رکھنے والے رابطہ کریں معرفت روزنامہ جنگ بکس نمبر

کیا معاشرتیات کی اک پوری کتاب نہیں لکھی جاسکتی اس پر؟
آئیے اس اشتہار کا تجزیہ کرتے ہیں
شروع میں ہی کہا جاسکتا ہے کہ یہ اشتہار جھوٹ بھی ہوسکتا سچ بھی
اگر جھوٹ ہے تو کسی سادہ لوح خوشحال معذور بیوہ وغیرہ کو پھانسنے کے لیے ہوگا
گر سچا اشتہار ہے تو یہ امید کی بجائے ناامیدی مایوسی کا اشتہار ہے
جب تک نوجوانوں کوخود بر چننے کی آزادی

نکاح میں اگر اک فریق کی مرضی ہی شامل نہ ہو
اسے محض برادری میں رشتہ کرنے/جائیداد کو غیروں میں جانے سے روکنے کیلیے کسی ایسے فرد سے بیاہ دیاجائے جو اسے پسند ہی نہ ہو
یا اس کے بھائی جان کسی کو قتل کر آئے ہوں اور بدل صلح میں مقتول کےکسی عزیز سے اب اپنی بہن کو بیاہ رہے ہوں

تاکہ وہ سزا سے بچ سکیں یا وٹہ سٹہ میں کسی ناپسندیدہ آدمی سے اس کی شادی کرائی جا رہی ہو
تو سوال یہ پیدا ہوتا ہے کہ اس نکاح کی کیا حیثیت ہے؟

The findings show an absence of a systematic and coordinated plot to take over these schools and an absence of any concerted and deliberate plot to promote radicalisation and violent extremism of Muslim children in these schools or elsewhere

language used to talk about the issues of “radicalisation” & “extremism” is itself the subject of considerable debate (Kundnani 2012; Lynch 2013). There is also a difficulty in understanding fully these issues cos there is a lack of an objective or universally accepted definition
As soon as the media took hold of the allegations, there was huge publicity about the promotion of extremism, radicalisation & terrorism.
At the time, the press also expressed many irrational anxieties about these Muslim majority schools (Arthur 2015). Even though, from the

A thread on order, chaos and freedom of speech

In our world with time, order emerges from chaos, and chaos emerges from order. Hence even in complete anarchy, freedom of speech slowly becomes a logical option, people can still believe what they want (1/n)
But when they speak openly about it in a public discourse, they stand to be corrected, by opinions which the public deem are better. What we call things around us, and each other, including people who find themselves on the fringes of society (2/n)
For example, what people call a transgender woman, evolves from what people feel is socially acceptable speech, and order emerges even without things being mandated as law. That is why freedom of speech is the primary way a society regulates itself (3/n)

"In #cognitive_warfare, the human mind becomes the battlefield."…
"The aim is to change not only what people think, but how they think and act. .. it shapes and influences individual and group beliefs and behaviours to favour an aggressor’s tactical or strategic objectives. "
" In its extreme form, it has the potential to fracture and fragment an entire society, so that it no longer has the collective will to resist an adversary’s intentions. An opponent could conceivably subdue a society without resorting to outright force or coercion."

The current trend in introducing #MandatoryVaccination should worry you. Surprisingly, not because there is something wrong with vaccinations being mandatory. The problem is our society and economic situation are ripe for bad things to happen.
The vaccines are produced and sold for profit by limited liability corporations with transnational interests and power. The disease is very likely to require multiple repetitions of vaccines. There is no incentive for treatment once vaccines are mandatory.
The limited liability corporations have even less liability by the current "emergency" mandated contracts. The laws that mandate vaccinations do not have provisions for "shit hits the fan" disruptions. Our #society has proven repeatedly that the powerful don't pay.

"making females sing when they shouldn't" @newscientist This will be an unpopular & probably ignored thread about #menopause #ecology #responsibility #society #power #inequality. So I am 51, BANG in the peri-menopause. #davinamenopause
I am also #PhD research fellow, trying thru brain fog to learn 2 new languages, in a new country & new work industry (academia) during a pandemic. So my GP prescribes me synthetic HRT after a 3 month headache & acute anxiety to allow me to keep working on #sustainability research
I am just one of 4 billion women who will experience(if they live long enough despite war, poverty, violence & environmental destruction to get to it?) waning of fertility. Half the world's humans. If we ALL took #hrt of any kind what does that mean for our non-human female kin?

I don’t suppose you’ve ever made a mistake?
“Why would you ask that?”
Because I’ve just made one.
“Ah, I see… And you don’t like making mistakes, do you?”
“Want to tell me?”
“Are you sure?”
I’m sure.

It’s something you said.
You made me realise something.
“I’m sorry. I wouldn’t have intended–”
You said, “Is it ethical to have so many enemies? Is it ethical to see so many people as ‘enemies of the people’?”
“I said that–but that doesn’t mean– ”
But you were right.
I like to think I’m strong on ethics… So what you said was quite a challenge. It hit me where it hurts. Right on target.
A kill shot.

Blowback & retaliation anticipated today (#Friday) for #PTIGovernment banning #TLP. Mosques & seminaries/madrassas continue to operate beyond #Pakistani state's authority & control. Large scale #protests by TLP supporters & sympathizers expected nationwide after #Jummah prayers.
Taking a leaf out of #France's book, #TLP supporters on #socialmedia are using the hashtag #IAmSaadHussainRizvi (#IamSaadHusaainRizvi - with a spelling mistake - is also trending).
It seems like decades ago, but does anyone else remember #JeSuisCharlie #IAmCharlieHebdo from 2015?
Not sure whether this is the 'official' account, but pretty sure this is how it starts...

The fundamental drive in the #individuals essence is to contribute to #society.
Consequently, the supreme #task of any society should be to enable the individual to achieve his or her individuality and emancipation in her or his own semiosphere, because only in this way can individuality as an evolutionary #achievement make its contribution.
Societies whose individuals are corrupted by consumerism and dependency thinking are not #viable in the long term, because these are not mechanisms that promote individuality and thus willingness to work for the social community.

“The United Kingdom has fallen. There has been a right wing coup in this country... . And nobody noticed. We did not notice because it was years in the making. We did not notice because when it came, it came in a blonde wig and a mask of buffoonery.
We did not notice because it lied to us and hid its true intent. We did not notice because the #foreign manipulation was hidden from us and continues to be hidden from us.
We did not notice, because the #lies when they were discovered were hidden by more lies, until lack of #truth became normal acceptable.
