Malik also said that all the appointments granted by President……

Delhi HC quashes summoning order issued against online portal The Wire’s Editor and Deputy Editor in defamation case filed by ex JNU professor Amita Singh.

Singh had alleged that the publication imputed that she prepared dossier depicting JNU is a “Den of Organised Sex Racket”.
Justice Anup Jairam Bhambhani quashed the summoning order dated January 07, 2017 issued by a MM Court.

The court observed that it was unable to discern as to how the subject publication can be said to have defamed Singh.

#DelhiHighCourt #JNU #TheWire
In her complaint, Singh referred to an article published by The Wire and alleged that its Editor did not verify the authenticity of the Dossier and used it for monetary benefits of its magazine, thereby defaming her reputation.

#MetaVsTheWire Saga

A #thread to explain what happened since October 6 between @Meta and #TheWire. The aim here is to keep it as simple as possible. This thread is more about the facts and not about taking sides.

Reports from @OpIndia_com are embedded.

On October 6, The Wire published a report suggesting Instagram removed a satirical post on UP CM #YogiAdityanath. The post was published by Instagram handle @/cringearchivist. It is active on Twitter as well. Cringearchivist blamed 'faulty AI' for the removal of the post.

The image was reported as a violation of Instagram guidelines against nudity. The story would have died with the report but The Wire claims that they went ahead and investigated to find out the reason behind the removal of the post.

J'ai pu le procurer l'article cité par @ehouardvial. J'essaye de vous en faire un résumé : 🧵
Les auteurs commencent par mentionner le fait que les systèmes éducatifs des pays developpes ont fait l'objet de nombreuses réformes au cours des dernières décennies, visant à améliorer l'éducation, reposant sur le principe d'une responsabilisation accrue des
des enseignants par rapport aux résultats des élèves (responsable au sens "accountable", devant répondre de ses actes, pas forcément libre de ses actes). Ces réformes s'éloignent du modèle éducatif centré sur le relationnel et l'engagement

I have to tell y’all something.
Last night I had an amazing conversation with my Black brother. He was living with me when Obama was elected the first time and since then we talk politics more openly than I do with most people IRL.

We talk all the time, but last night we had a long conversation...
He is so frustrated and I get it. Watching the righteous movement sparked by the murder of George Floyd get hijacked by people who don’t give a shit about the Black community.
All of this destruction... and for what?

Will a single thing change?

We all want the same answers.

➡️Queremos responder: ¿Cuáles son las oportunidades y riesgos que ofrece la #AI y cómo evitar que vulnere los derechos políticos, sociales y civiles?

➡️¿Qué valor añadido puede ofrecer la sociedad civil organizada?

In this time of fear and uncertainty, I finally started #TheWire. Here goes: a middle-aged white lady watches the greatest show on earth.
I’ve watched the first 5 so far. There will be SPOILERS, so if you haven’t seen it, feel free to mute this thread.

Of course, this applies to the kind souls who haven’t already muted me for my political rants and weak jokes.
So this show premiered in 2002 and People Magazine waited 16 years before naming Idris Elba the Sexiest Man Alive?

Insubordinate. And churlish.
