Do you know that there are more than a 100 Igbo gods, both small and big, but for some reason we only know one. Why?

I think colonialism and the entrance of Christianity, made us forget our roots.

I will be talking about the 9 strongest Igbo gods (Alusi)

1) Ala: also known as ani, ana & ale in numerous dialects, is a female god that represents the earth, fertility, creativity and morality. She is the most respected god in igboland

She is considered the wife of Amadioha, the sky god. The symbol of ala is a python & crescent moon
2) Amadioha: This is the most popular. He is the god of thunder & lightening & he is the strongest of all

He is a considered a gentle man among the deities & the cruelest when annoyed. He is represented by a white ram and his color is red

His shrine can be found in rivers state

#Thread #Science, le grand détournement !

Après :

- l'étude sur "l'impact de l'intensification récente des pratiques agricoles sur les oiseaux"
- l'étude sur "l'inutilité des herbicides"

Les agronomes sont, encore, obligés de débunker poliment une nouvelle mauvaise étude ⤵️
Le point commun entre ces 3 études ?
Elles ont toutes été réalisées dans la même zone géographique, impliquant toujours le même chercheur et auteur...
Mais surtout elles ont été très largement médiatisées !
Pourquoi ?
Bah justement parce qu'elles ont été écrites pour ça...
Ces études sont calibrées pour fournir un sujet croustillant aux journalistes en surfant sur la vague de l'écologisme !
Critique des #pesticides, impacts des pratiques agricoles sur la #biodiversité ...
Mais surtout elles font passer les #agriculteurs pour de parfaits imbéciles !

#ICYMI: Ambassador Sondland is testifying today about his work as the United States Ambassador to the European Union.

His opening statement has been publicly released.

Here are some key points that further undermine @HouseDemocrats' wayward impeachment effort.

Sondland testified that he recalled NO discussions with the State Department or White House about Vice President Biden or his son.

He added that he didn’t recall any effort to encourage an investigation into the Bidens.
Sondland stated that neither Ambassador Bolton nor Fiona Hill ever shared any critical comments to him about the Administration’s Ukraine policy.

Sondland added that he was “disappointed” by media reports of Hill’s critical comments.

I wouldn’t have been in any position to open up and share my story if I hadn’t found love. I lost my self esteem, confidence and identity when I was just 17 years old.

2. That day had been engraved on the surface of my heart and it would remain the most dreadful day of my life. Before I recount what happened on that day let me briefly tell you the story of my life.

My name is Folasade Bello popularly known as Shandy Bee.
3. Shandy Bee is my radio name. I am an On Air Presenter also known as OAP. I work with one of the best Radio Station in Nigeria and I hosts one of the most-listened-to Radio show in the country. I was born into an average family comprising of 3 children and my parents.

India has a long and venerable history in the field of higher education. In ancient times, the country was known to have been home to the oldest formal universities in the world.
The world’s first University was established in Takshila or Taxila or Takshashila (now in Pakistan) in 700BC. This centre of learning was situated about 50 km west of Rawalpindi in Pakistan.
It was an important Vedic/Hindu and Buddhist center of learning but wasn’t as well organized as the University of Nalanda.

The Vayu Purana traces the start of Takshila to Taksha, son of Bharata and is also mentioned in Mahabharata, citing Dhaumya as one of the Acharyas.

Alright, let´s look into that dependency claim. #Thread
Take VW for example; if you look only at deliveries you could get the impression that China is indeed very important.
But that is not the whole picture. Most of the cars sold in China are older/cheaper models like the VW Santana which is often used for taxi fleets. This way you get high delivery numbers but low revenue and profit compared to e.g. the European market.
What does that look like?
- Europe/Other Markets: 4,739 (in thousand vehicles)
- Asia-Pacific (incl China): 4,640
- Americas: 1,521
- Europe/Other Markets: 143,089 (in mio €)
- Asia-Pacific (incl China): 43,166
- Americas: 48,061

#THREAD on how this @FresnoBee story came together.

This is an issue that is rarely talked about but gets in the way of advancing out of poverty.
@FresnoBee During reporting, I learned that some people pull out their own teeth; dentures are stolen; and some dentures are so painful people ditch them and chew with their gums. After a house fire, a man lost his ID and his chance to get dentures.
@FresnoBee I dug up Gina’s story on @gofundme. Her teeth are yellow, crooked and browning. Some crumbled off like chalk, and others are decaying. She considers herself an extrovert and dreams of opening her own business, but shame pushed her into the shadows.

There was traditionalism before Marshall and Gordon. There will be traditionalism, please God, long after they are a footnote in someone's blog post. But there is something intriguing about them which is also unique - and dangerous. #Thread
1. Anyone following the events of the last 40 years is familiar with what the First Things cabal - and notoriously Papal biographer George Weigel achieved, or at least tried to achieve.
2. To cut a long story short, they presided over the unholy chemical wedding of "John Paul II Catholicism" (largely good) and right-liberal fusionism (soft libertarianism and weak social conservatism, exemplified by Reagan or Bush I).

#THREAD to clear misconceptions that Lord Rama🕉️ is not worshipped much in South India:

We have 1000's of Rama temples in our South India..almost in every village, town of Telugu states.

#RamMandir #AyodhyaCase
#AyodhyaHearing #राममंदिर_निर्माण #JaiShriRam #SriRamaJayam

Don't fall for lies by Le-Lis, #Dumeels, Hinduphobes & doubt Lord Rama's worship in South.

I believe that Respected @SadhguruJV ji used these words accidentally.

#RamMandir #AyodhyaCase
#AyodhyaHearing #राममंदिर_निर्माण #JaiShriRam #SriRamaJayam

@SadhguruJV ji said "Maybe Rama is not such a big icon in the south."

That's false & only Anti-Hindu, Dravidian-#DMK gangs do such nonsense.
We South Hindus don't.

My boss used to say that I'm a good learner and so I rarely make the same mistakes twice. #Thread
It's because my mind does this weird thing. I take a pictorial snapshot of important events and can recollect the feelings and sensations years later, as if they happened yesterday. I remember Ebenezers; life's memorials.
I vividly recall when I realised that certain values were becoming rare in Nigeria. Concepts like hard work, diligence, loyalty, love, honesty etc. It was 10 years ago.

1/ We've seen many posts by Muslims asking why #ExMuslims keep talking about Islam. So we wrote this thread to address the misconceptions around #ExMuslims.

The next time someone asks this question, point them here.

#AMSA #Thread
2/ "You've left Islam, so why keep talking about it? Why not just move on with your life?"

This one is common. The short answer is: many of us would love to move on with our lives. Only we can't because the people around us won't let us
3/ For us in Muslim communities, we're surrounded by Islam.

Our friends are Muslim, our families are Muslim, some of us are even married to Muslims. Coming out means telling people we care about. Depending on the community, we could get ostracized completely or physically harmed

Ancient India was not only a land of philosophy and religion but also a fertile ground for science and technology. Many great sages authored vast literature on science and technology.
Of which sage Bharadvāja’s Vaimānikaśāstra is one of the most renowned and relevant texts, even during this technological peak of twenty first century.

There is mention of the usage of aircraft in the Indian epics, Rāmayāna and Mahābhārata.
As mentioned in the Rāmāyana, Ravana used puspakavimāna, which had been captured from Kuvera. However, Rama took charge of this aircraft after killing Ravana and used it to reach Ayodhya along with Lakshmana, Sītā & others.Gavopākhyāna in Mahābhārata,also talks of using aircraft.

What is the difference between a Data Scientist and a Data Analyst?

Both work with data, the difference is what they do with data and the tools they use.

Also, are these the only careers in data?

A #Thread on data careers and the skill sets you need for each.
1. A Data Analyst identifies and extracts meaningful insights from a given pool of data. They are mostly referred to as Junior Data Scientists as most entry-level folks pursuing data science careers, start off as data analysts.
2. The job of the data analyst mostly involves data pre-processing, data representation/visualization, and reporting. A data analyst may not be directly involved in decision-making, but provides insights that drive this. She/He answers the What and Why questions from data.

Curious About Why That Your 'Less-Talented' Friend Makes Impact And Money More Than You?

Then, Read This.

This post was inspired by @ronaldnzimora

Last year, I was having a conversation with a friend that was about starting her Master's Degree.

Suddenly, our conversation dived into analyzing 3 categories of people.

First, we have the stinkingly rich folks - they may even look unintelligent educationally, but they run countries, counties, states, communities.

For example, politicians, rulers, fortune 500 leaders, etc.
Secondly, we have the barely surviving folks - gosh, they are schooled (with good, fair and poor grades/certificates), they complain about the rich folks and how they steal all available money.

For example, teachers, doctors, bankers, etc.

Recently back from the @CareQualityComm launch event for #StateOfCare 2018/19.

Full report is here:…

But if you're short on time here's my take on the key points.

Sound the #thread klaxon /1
Most media coverage I've seen focused on A&E departments (see example below).

That's an important story (discussed below) but it doesn't feel radically new - we get a lot of data on A&E every month via @NHSEnglandStats /2

More people are going to A&E but that's largely been driven by attendances at minor injuries.

The bigger problem is the growth in emergency admissions, which suggests more patients with more severe or complex needs:…

#Serekaniye totalmente sotto contro SDF, scontri ad ovest di #Kobane, vittime civili a #Manbij, la mezzaluna rossa curda lancia un appello: "disastro umanitario".

#Thread #Rojava #Siria
E’ stata una nottata di resistenza quella appena trascorsa nella Siria del Nord. La città di Serekaniye, assediata da giorni da migliaia di forze dell’esercito turco e delle brigate jhiadiste sostenute da Erdogan, è totalmente sotto il controllo delle SDF.
Dopo continui attacchi supportati da raid aerei, diversi report parlano di un attacco da parte delle SDF che ha colto di sorpresa il nemico: alcune brigate jhiadiste si sarebbero addirittura ritirate in Turchia lasciando il posto alle forze speciali turche, che tuttavia ->

Writing the CV everyone wants to read is easy, if you'd consider these points I want to share with you. They are as simple as ABC, but you'd be surprised how many of us over look them or consider them to be inconsequential.

That being said, let's dive in...
Human resource personnels are burdened with the gruesome task of scheming through hundreds of mails during the recruitment process. With the high rise of unemployment, you can imagine the deluge of CVs that come across their desks.
Your aim is to get them to pick out your CV from the multitude. This is not to say that they wouldn't end up going through the other CVs, but what happens when the position is already filled by a more captivating CV, well to the recycle bin that's what.
