Things are starting to change. What future do we want?

The political left and alt-right will use technology (incl. #AI/#AGI) & near-certain runaway #climate change. How to turn threats into opportunities? An intro to #ExtinctionRebellion research: vimeo.com/297453366 1/n
This film introduces a political theory on necessary conditions for climate mitigation (a.k.a.: "saving the world"). Let's call this theory "carbon language" until we find a better term. Don't worry, this thread will be short and easy to understand. vimeo.com/297679220 2/n
Indeed, this thread is entirely unscientific because science can tell us only how to save the world, not why. Why preserve life on Earth? Why live good lives? These are ethical questions; their answers depend on our values, and if we want to mitigate climate change, we will 3/n

In #reality there is no such things like Great Team, Great Organization, Great Nations. They only exist in our mind, it is only a consequence.

Only Great #Individuals exists and when they come together, #Team, #Organization and #Nation happen which are extraordinary.
All your efforts to change the consequences (Team, Organization, Nation) directly will be arduous and over exaggerated and in the end it will bring misery to all individuals who participated in the journey
All efforts must go be invested in #Individuals

There are only two ways in which investment will be fruitful
1. Invest in Individual's uniqueness and skills
2. Invest in Individual's consciousness

1. Jesus described this #ElectionDay :
This generation...is like children sitting in the marketplaces and
calling to their companions, and
saying: ‘We played the flute for you,
And you did not dance;
We mourned to you,
And you did not lament.’
.
EXPLAIN...

2. In Christ's Parable, the #children are upset because their companions didn't follow their #Leadership . The children were so entitled that they thought it inconceivable that their companions did not jump at the #chance to follow.

3. This describes the #Dems perfectly. They are not seeking to EARN #vote s, they are TELLING #People how they MUST #VoteBlue simply because the #Democrats are calling the #Republicans #racist or other derogatory names.

1/ BREAKING.

Pakistan's hooggerechtshof spreekt Asia Bibi, een Christelijke Pakistaanse, in hoger beroep vrij van "godslastering".

Asia Bibi, die in 2010 werd veroordeeld tot de doodstraf, wordt onmiddellijk vrijgelaten.

Zaak kreeg wereldwijd veel aandacht. Groot nieuws dit:
2/ "the prosecution has categorically failed to prove its case beyond reasonable doubt," concluded the chief justice. "it is not for individuals, or a gathering (mob), to decide as to (...) Section 295-C has been committed or not." dawn.com/news/1442396/s…
3/ "Bibi appeared to be in state of disbelief after hearing decision from her lawyer.

"I cant believe what I am hearing, will I go out now? Will they let me out, really?" Bibi told AFP by phone from prison. "I just don't know what to say, I am very happy"

#Khashoggi Case Thread: I am going to ‘pin’ this post to use it as an ‘Info Thread’ on the #Khashoggi Case. I am in #Turkey. I’ve been following the case closely and with access to sources & experts here. This is a very ‘sensitive’ criminal case due to ‘Diplomatic Booby Traps’!!!
The Evidence Obtained Outside Cameras will not show any evidence of ‘tempering’ but other than license plates of dozens of diplomatic cars (Many with tinted windows-large trunks) with related time stamp, drivers Info, model/year: Nothing.
#Turkish Intel-Investigative Bodies also have the list of all Diplomatic & Private Saudi & “other significant’ Planes in #Turkey for the period of ‘interest.’ Many of the Target airports have their own security cameras & related evidence.

1 / DEPLORABLE WORLD
A story written with no plan or script through nano-chapters using the prompts from #vss365 #AmWriting #SunScribbles #SunWIP #SciFi #Satsplat #BadWordSat
#Swim steady and firm”, 15 yr old David told the others. They had been prepared. Their go-bags had the clothes approved by Deplorables and they had a small list of safe-houses in the mainland. All the adults in the island died do make their escape possible. #vss365 #AmWriting
In the mainland, it was safer to marry the kids to each other. They would live with their assigned parents according to the fake identity genealogy. What used to be known as the #cycle of abuse had been normalized. They had to blend in and hide in plain sight. #vss365 #AmWriting

I got to explain #GayPanic and #UselessLesbian to my pysch today 😂

These are terms I just learned (over the last few months myself) that described succinctly, what the heck is going on with my brain.

To unpack these terms, I'm going to start you with Sappho.

-
“Sweet mother, I cannot weave –
slender Aphrodite has overcome me
with longing for a girl.” –Sappho

To everyone, we've almost all been in this feeling. (i cannot speak for Ace)
Someone we see or meet, and their presence just #dazzles us into #malfunction (however brief)

-
- it's a pretty common #human #feeling. (again, cannot speak for Ace, and that's ok, y'all are lovely :) )

now here's where #GayPanic sets in... we feel the feels...omg. wow.
and our brains go into... IS THIS DANGER????

I'm sorry to say, our panic does start there.

1} My Dear Friend Geri,

With all due respect to current #NonProfits serving Refugees & Immigrants - their Branding & Messaging are #Tragically #Weak.

#OurAmericanKids🇺🇸 are BEING #SCAPEGOATED & #WE, the Liberals of #OurCountry we call the United States of America...
2} ...get OUR #Truthful-#Propaganda #LUNCH handed to us - #EVERY #DAMNED #TIME there's a watershed political issue.

My opinion as a 25-year #Duke MBA-trained-#Strategist, is that "Dreamers" is a well-intentioned, but desperately INEFFECTIVE MONIKER for #OurAmericanKids. Scapegoats for American Fascists

Un-@realDonaldTrump dreams of building a wall "SO fucking HIGH," that planes can't #LAND in #Texas without traveling 100-miles North of our Southern Border - just to pull a #giant U-ey✈️ Hitler Dreamed of an Aryan Planet-Earth.U-Turn in the sky

Are you one of those people who's looked back on 2017 and convinced yourself that you haven't achieved anything? Worried about catching up with your mates who seem to have done much better?

Let me tell you a story about #time.

A thread 👇
A long #time ago, back when I was about twelve or thirteen years old, my parents travelled to Uyo.

Before leaving, my mother asked me to prepare Edikang ikong soup so she and my father would eat when they returned.
When I was finished with the soup, it was supposed to look something like this:

Today's thread

Measurement of time.
How current calendars can't match ancient Hindu timekeeping.

Why a day isn't always 24 hours long

Why a year doesn't have 365.25 days

#science #astronomy #Time
1/n
How long does a day last everyday? 24 hours? Wrong.

We define day as the time taken by Earth to complete one rotation around its axis.
But with respect to what is the measurement made? 2/n
Since Earth is also revolving around Sun while it is rotating, it needs to rotate a little extra when rotation is measured w.r.t. sun (solar day) than a distant star (sidereal day)

Weekly Spam Alert
This week it will the 'The Art of War' of Sun Tzu
Not directly related to Markets but I guess this classic will be useful.
1.Do big institutions let any1 know what they r doing in Markets?
Does dis quote of Art of War reminds u stealth short covering/silent accu
2. Though we have heard of stupid haste in war, cleverness has never been seen associated with long delays.
