Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana - the scheme is the scam. It's not about one private corporation, but over a dozen of them benefit in crores of rupees of public money. #Thread
The scheme's design ensures the siphoning off of over giant sums of public money to private corporations and to a couple of public insurers (in line for privatisation).
In the past three years over Rs. 66,000 crores of state govt. money and central govt money (i.e. public money) have been poured into the PMFBY's operations. (Apart from the premiums paid up by farmers)
Government Enterprise and Empowerment Programme (GEEP) is an critical tool for financially empowering micro businesses, (artisans, market women) and petty traders at the base of the pyramid.
GEEP (comprising @MarketMoni, #FarmerMoni, @Trader_Moni) has disbursed N27.4 billion in interest-free loans from N10,000 to N350,000 to more than 1.1 million market women/men, artisans, farmers, petty traders across 36 States & FCT. Under GEEP, 56% of the loans have gone to women
Loans disbursed (MarketMoni) – more than 300,000
-Loans disbursed (FarmerMoni) – more than 5,000
-Loans disbursed (TraderMoni) – more than 800,000 so far (target is 2 million by end of 2018)
I can't imagine how difficult the last month's been for the brave women who've spoken their #MeToo stories & the brave women for whom it's still hard to speak. This is a revolution and it's been a long time coming. But I've been perplexed by the reaction of us men. #Thread
It's been difficult navigating conversations with fellow men over the last month, particularly as someone who's been speaking up on #MeToo& who's known both survivors & (unfortunately) perpetrators, and has been deeply affected by that.
(This won't be preachy, please read ahead)
Yes, there are men who are empathetic and kind; then there are conversations that've revolved around 'Such is life', or 'What can one do'. But many (heated) conversations have alarmingly been about: 'But any man is a target today (#Notallmen)' & for others still, this is gossip.
Nuansa “adu domba” yg diciptakan oleh kelompok tertentu sangat terasa, dgn menyentil hal yg sgt sensitif, yaitu “simbol2 Agama”, kasus pembakaran bendera seakan2 membenturkan NU dgn Kelompok tertentu dgn harapan ada effect bola salju dr kasus ini dibawa ke ranah Politik #Thread
Devide at impera / politik adu domba ini diharapkan dapat Mendorong ketidakpercayaan terhadap pemerintah dan menciptakan permusuhan antar masyarakat, dgn harapan, akan ada image tertentu tentang buruknya pemerintah saat ini, dan menarik kita pada perdebatan yg bkn substansial
Ada pihak2 tertentu dgn “gagah” menantang pemerintah agar “ditangkap” kemudian berharap ada simpati masyarakat, bahwa Pemerintah tdk menyukai “simbol2 agama tertentu” yg bs diartikan scr politis, pemerintah Arogan dan “tdk pro”, sehingga hrs diganti, PKI,dan framingpun berlanjut

Pictures from an exhibition arranged at VJT Hall in Trivandrum to mark the 82nd anniversary celebrations of the Temple Entry Proclamation of 1936, which abolished the ban on 'lower castes' or avarnas from entering Hindu temples in Travancore.
Misrabhojanam (Panthibhojanam), held on May 30, 1917 by social reformer Sahodaran Ayyappan.
Misrabhojanam was the first inter caste feast of Kerala. Prior to this, each caste had their stricter caste codes in food consumption and hence food was seen as a symbol of caste.
Dalava Kulam Massacre
In 1806, a group of 200 Avarna youth organized themselves to enter Vaikom Temple. The Travancore cavalry led by Kunju Kutti Pilla ruthlessly killed the 200 men & their bodies were thrown into the Kulam (pond) on the north eastern side of the temple compound
The BBC is running a 'fake news week'. To mark the occasion, I thought I'd do a thread. 'Fake news' is a very unhelpful term, which describes at least three different problems, which have three different solutions. #Thread
There is monetised fabrication. People knowingly pumping out rubbish ('The Pope supports Trump') because it's a way of making money through Facebook / Google's ad-revenue model. My colleague @carljackmiller covered it brilliantly here for @BBCClickbbc.co.uk/news/technolog…
This is driven in part by programmatic advertising: ad-tech follow USERS around, and advertise on sites they visit, irrespective of how truthful it is. This is where tech solutions CAN work - ie de-rank / de-monetise etc. Some evidence that's working too. engadget.com/2018/09/14/fac…
AS we are all focused and arguing over the choice between @atiku and @MBuhari and following needless cat and mouse game over budget for #NigeriaDecides2019 NASS finally had the brainwave to divert N242.24bn (via virement) from existing budgets to fund 2019 elections.
Guess what budgets our dear overpaid #NASS led by @bukolasaraki choose to cut? Agriculture N11bn. HEALTH N8.05bn. EDUCATION N10.2bn. Works (roads included), Power and Housing N25.5bn. Science & Tech - N7.46bn. Water Resources - N12.95bn and more. Budget trackers went DEAF n BLIND
Durissimo editoriale del WSJ contro l’euro (in verità ne ha anche per noi). Ne hanno davvero abbastanza di questa disputa sul deficit italiano e non mancano di farlo sapere. #threadwsj.com/articles/the-e…
Fuori dalla Germania (cioè dalle parti loro, ma non solo) la responsabilità di questa situazione è dei Mandarini di Bruxelles.
Concedere all’Italia una moderata espansione di bilancio significa autorizzare anche agli altri a farlo e, soprattutto, mettere a nudo l’incapacità della BCE di garantire quel debito.
The claim by @atiku is a mischievous attempt to grab the headlines. Nigerians need to know that one of the resolutions of the Atiku team at their recently-concluded Dubai retreat was to embark on scaremongering. This is one of such.

La pagina storica del primo conflitto mondiale è per tutti un severo monito a respingere la cultura della guerra e a ricercare ogni mezzo legittimo per porre fine ai conflitti che ancora insanguinano parecchie regioni del mondo. 1/2 @pontifex_it, Angelus Domini, #11novembre1918
Sembra che non impariamo nulla. Mentre preghiamo per tutte le vittime di quella immane tragedia, diciamo con forza: investiamo sulla pace, non sulla guerra. 2/2 @pontifex_it, Angelus Domini, #11novembre1918
Oh, et puisque je parle d'appétit énergétique, quelques éléments de comparaison : 7000 tML d'uranium, ça fait 8300 tonnes d'U3O8. À comparer avec notre consommation de ressources fossiles en 2017 :
- 76 900 000 t de pétrole
- 29 400 000 t de gaz
- 13 600 000 t de charbon
(Ça, c'était si des fois le transport maritime ou terrestre de matières dangereuses vous faisait peur, ou si la dépendance aux imports d'uranium vous apparaît rédhibitoire ^^)
A guy i know(friend of a friend) met a random chick at an outing, they talked and vibes were going too well. My guy say "It was like magic😂😂", so things push real well, they ended up at the guy's apartment and got to fuck and from here I'll quote the guy

This is a #thread regarding Jonathan/Jessica Yaniv, the person who is currently claiming to be a trans woman and suing beauticians who have been refusing to wax their male genitals. I have decided to make this thread with neutral pronouns regarding Jonathan/Jessica because from
what I could gather they have chosen to be referred to as both Jonathan and Jessica and no amount of disgust and hatred I feel for someone could get me to misgender them on purpose. It took me ages to decide to actually make this thread happen because my story with this person is
very much still an open wound and traumatised me in ways I'm not sure I even fully comprehend. I appreciate RTs to get the word out, and I also am open to answering questions but please do not expect me to answer everything, this is very overwhelming. The only reason I am willing
Com’era quella barzelletta delle ‘parole che facevano male’ ed i tassi bancari che salivano? Come? Mi state dicendo che neanche a settembre è accaduto nulla, né per i piccoli né per i grandi prestiti? #thread
Ma allora saranno diminuiti i volumi? Forse le #banche avranno prestato solo a clienti particolarmente affidabili? Nemmeno.
Allora saranno state penalizzate le famiglie per l’acquisto di abitazioni? Acqua anche in questo caso.
ATTACK ON TRADERMONI IS AN ATTACK ON HARD-WORKING NIGERIANS, SAYS VP SPOKESPERSON #Thread
The call by some individuals under the auspices of a group named Southern and Middle Belt Leaders Forum to suspend @Trader_Moni, one of the microcredit schemes of the Buhari admin’s @NSIP_NG, is both unbelievable and unfortunate, according to @akandeoj, Spokesperson to the VP.
Akande, who was reacting to news report credited to the group, noted that such an attack on @NSIP_NG is a direct confrontation with the millions of Nigerians benefitting, especially the projected 2m total who will be receiving the collateral-free loans by the end of the year.
Our attention has been drawn to a report of the House Committee on Emergency & Disaster Preparedness issued on Thursday,Nov 8, 2018, particularly in respect of funds released for “emergency intervention of food security to the NorthEast” in June 2017,when the VP was Ag President.
In its report, the Committee alleged that a sum of N5,865,671,939.26 was approved and released in June 2017 vide a Memo raised from the Office of the Acting President, directing the Honourable Minister of Finance and the Accountant General of the Federation to so act.
Évidemment, c’est la vétusté des immeubles concernés qui explique ce drame. Ce sont des « trois-fenêtres » marseillais issus d’une règle d’urbanisme de 1847 qui visait à lutter contre la pénurie de terrains en centre-ville.
Ces immeubles ont été construits avec ce qu’on avait sous la main : principalement des moellons assemblés avec un mortier de chaux et de sable — qui est mort depuis longtemps — et des planchers en bois — bouffé par les termites.
On ne va pas remonter l'amont jusqu'à la formation de l'uranium dans les cœurs d'étoiles super massives qui s'effondrent (même si ce serait stylé), et partir plus modestement de la mine.
Rien d'exceptionnel à raconter cependant sur l'extraction minière de l'uranium...
Ce dernier un est métal qui forme divers composés minéraux, qu'on exploite dans des gisements où il représente en général quelques dixièmes de pourcents de la matière, quelques pourcents au max.
