1/ A thread to catalog my stray comments about the NFL yesterday (as part of my academic 'obsessive archiving' heritage).

Overall, the #Steelers had an amazing road win over Buffalo mainly because of a stifling defense, which is fun in retrospect but during the game is stressful
2/ The comment below is actually from my sports-watching partner, my sportsman son, who is wise & savvy beyond his years.

Melvin "Boy Named Sue?" Ingram draws a holding penalty instead of getting a de jure sack but de facto it is one.
3/ BAL & NE are experts in bad-faith rulebook exploitation. Examples abound (see CBS link). 2 most common: the "Flacco Ball" (badly thrown deep pass designed purely to draw DPI) & having the OL hold on every play to DDOS the refs.

Why state of #sports in India needs a push now?

A Thread
@IndiaSports @YASMinistry @Media_SAI
The #school curriculums still have tiny space for sports. Indian mentality goes on with the saying, “Kheloge kundoge toh banoge kharab, padhoge likhoge toh banoge nawab.”
This means that those who focus on sports are not valued, but those who are only focused on studies excel. With such a mentality, how can India expect to compete with nations like #China, the #USA, the #UK etc in the #Olympics?

For the first time in history Tokyo Olympics has taken mantal health issues to the podium.
Indian team has been no exception.
Here is my attempt to give you a glimpse of what affects a champion's mind.
I have worked as mental health coach for many sportspersons over last 2 decades.
Chess, TT, Lawn Tennis, Golf and occasional shuttler too.
Some of those have played at international level too.

So I have some insider information for you.

Read on -
For most people mental health is about anxiety, depression, suicide and the big names like bipolar and schizophrenia.
For performance most people are happy to believe that self confidence and persistence is all that is needed.

It is far from truth.

“This expression of fandom is more than just a ritual and more complex than just supporting a professional hockey team," writes @waub.

Historically #Kashmiri women have enjoyed freedom like none of their counterparts in the other regions of our country. The intrusion of regressive ideologies, targeted at women, in the 90’s, might have pushed them behind but they are rapidly changing the gender norms.

#Kashmir
The spirit of women in #Kashmir, supported aptly by various #government initiatives, have grown wings that enable them to soar the skies and break the glass ceiling.
#WomenEmpowerment #Kashmir

@FatimaDar_jk @MirYanaSY @AsimKhanTweets @IAmErAijaz
With the #abrogation, women of #Kashmir now have a stake in their ancestral properties regardless of their choice is spouse. This have liberated women who are not bound, shackled with patriarchal laws.

1) This thread will analyse one of my biggest holdings, Kambi Group. Kambi is a B2B sportsbetting provider. The company is listed on First North at Nasdaq Stockholm, ticker: Kambi
2) Kambi’s services include services such as front-end user interface, customer intelligence, risk management, and odds compiling services built on an in-house developed software platform. The majority of their income comes from Europe and the US
3) Kambi was originally spun off from Swedish operator Kindred in 2014. This was an important move to attract new customers as the company gained full independence and integrity over their operations and would no longer have any conflict of interest

Big congrats to @nonfungibles on releasing their 2020 Annual Non-Fungible Tokens Report! @NathalieBcht, @latelier & I thoroughly enjoyed partnering with them on it: bit.ly/2ZkRiS8.
Some key takeaways from the report & my personal observations a/t #NFTs. A long-ish 🧵👇:
MARKET SIZE: The NFT market had a historic 2020 - tripled in value, reaching $250m (in terms of value of all #Ethereum transactions on chain, so actual market size is even bigger). This is rapid growth for a space that’s just a few years old.
Market is still volatile & prone to speculation but more sophisticated use cases are emerging based on utility, community, competitive elements. All are prerequisites for a more mature market. For all the hype around crypto, it is #NFTs that offer some of the more promising uses.

But, still, Barbara... as a fairytale ‘The Queen’s Gambit’ was so much fun. 🤩
And the narrative sort of fits the truth:
It would take a surreal, fictitious lifestyle & type of autism for a female to achieve such a status in #chess.
Women are typically too hyper-generalized.🌹
Even if I could tune out the world & it’s minutia to such an extreme I don’t know that I would want to.
Being a ‘super-generalist’ (able to multi-task & sense ‘deep humanity’ #instinct) tends to be the woman’s skill set.
Many of us depend upon this other form of brilliance. 😉
We are talking about the extreme fringes of human capacity re a singular variable.
Life doesn’t work that way for 99.9% of the population.
We have multi-faceted realms to negotiate, which can be harsh and delightful.
For those involved, #sports intensifies both to varying extent.
