This semester in my Arts of Islam survey, I decided to scrap the research paper and have students collaborate to re-write @Wikipedia articles. It ended up better than I could have imagined & transformed how I think about teaching #StudentsOfIslamicArt #IslamicArt #MedievalTwitter
I was hesitant about shaking up a popular class that had worked well for years, but one statistic finally convinced me: 90% of Wikipedia articles are written by men - and largely by men from Euro-American contexts. theguardian.com/education/2018…
The oft-maligned #Wikipedia is the now the world's most frequently-consulted source of information & fifth-most visited website. Because anyone can be an editor, it's on us to make it the best resource it can be. If you think Wikipedia is bad, look in the mirror. Wikipedia is us.

#JollofMusic101 Dear Upcoming Artiste: Basic Music Industry Terms you Should Know

3) Indie Labels:
These are self-funded labels that is NOT affiliated to any Big Three Record Label. Affiliation in this regard could be seen in the case of Mr Eazi’s Banku Music label liaising...
Universal Music Group Nigeria & South Africa. After his affiliation with Wizkid’s StarBoy Records in 2016.

Indie Labels often operate solo and an example of one would be #RicHassani’s label called Riverland Records.

4) Manager:
A manager is an integral determinant in the making or marring of an artiste’s career. The manager guides and oversees the daily dealings of an artist.

Let's see what changes TRAs made on #Wikipedia since they blocked the pro-radfem editor.

Exhibit nr. 1: a well-documented, filmed, convicted case of physical assault is now an "altercation."
Exhibit nr. 2: Derrick Jensen and Nikki Craft's criticism of John Stoltenberg is not mentioned at all anymore.
Exhibit nr. 3: Let's make sure the public doesn't mistakenly think that these are feminist viewpoints, shall we?

#auspol MP @StuartRobertMP charged taxpayers up to $2,800 a month for his home internet bills. He also spent $16,880 of taxpayers' money on "personalised letterhead stationery". PS: he has blocked me just like Bishop, Morriscum and others. abc.net.au/news/2018-10-0…
#auspol MP @StuartRobertMP also flogging $5800 per person tours to Israel. michaelsmithnews.com/2018/10/for-sa… He's an Evangelical just like PM Morriscum (his wife is a church pastor). Also ex-army. And seems to be abusing secrecy powers...
#auspol MP @StuartRobertMP in March demanded parliament apologize for not helping Jews in WWII: timesofisrael.com/australian-mp-… Even the Council of Australian Jewry said he was wrong: Australian took 15,000 Jewish refugees! Now he's Assistant Treasurer!

Meet #Israel's #Hasbara, which means #Propaganda, MSM Censorship Application👇🤨
This app came out about last year, and it is still on the iTunes store.
The app posts daily missions & TELLS YOU WHAT TO DO AND WHAT TO SAY
#Trolls #Palestine #Gaza #BDS #JeremyCorbyn #JC4PM
6yrs ago #Jerusalem, #IDF Rep:
"we are now located in the SAME building where the Foreign Journalists are,we have close working relationships w/ hundreds of journalists. In addition we launched media project working in many platforms,twitter in Arabic, Russian, French & English."
How #Israel-i Propaganda (#Hasbara) Works: #TheLuntzDocument
If you want to understand how the #propaganda works you need to read the Luntz document -- "The Key," Luntz says, "is the Claim that the Fight is Over Ideology, Not Land. About Terror, & Not Territory."

Wikipédia, cet « outil efficace pour gérer son e-réputation » qui « permet de ramener du trafic sur un site web et d’en accroître la notoriété ».

En fait non, vous avez tout faux, cher monsieur !

(Et je vais faire de ce pas un #thread)
#Wikipédia est donc une encyclopédie, une encyclopédie vise à recueillir le savoir reconnu comme notable dans le monde. Ainsi, elle ne traite que de sujet réputés à travers le grand public.
Il est donc évident qu'une entreprise de plomberie ou un cabinet d'avocat, même le plus renommé à travers un territoire, ne peut pas avoir d'article. Et oui, sur une encyclopédie, tous les sujets n'ont pas leur place !

1) Un petit guide sur les #SocialJusticeWarriors (#SJW) suite aux événements de #Tolbiac et tout le marasme qui s’en est suivi, parce que je suis assez étonnée de la méconnaissance des gens en #France et sur #Twitter. Il reste central aux #US depuis quelques années. (à dérouler)
2) Car oui, comme beaucoup de mouvements culturels celui-ci nous vient directement des US et du #Canada, et met la lutte militante pour le progrès social en son centre, tjs sous le prisme d’un rapport de force à une minorité : #genre, #handicap, #racisme, #sexisme, etc…
3) Donc si t’es twittos #anglophone tu vas sûrement rigoler, parce que tu t’es déjà retrouvé embourbé dans des échanges impossibles et que tu connais exactement le sujet… Tu pourras donc passer ton chemin, car tu n’apprendras rien de spé.

Les lacs présentent cette particularité (par rapport aux rivières par exemple) d'être des milieux avec peu de courants qui favorisent la sédimentation des particules. Parmi ces particules, des dépôts allochtones (externe au lac) et des dépôts autochtones (en provenance du lac).
D’ailleurs vous avez une idée de combien se dépose de sédiment dans un lac tel que le Léman ?
Je vous donne la réponse en début d'aprem !
Et pour le lac d'Annecy, qui est 80 fois plus petit en volume, est-ce que la quantité de matière détritique sera selon :

1. Thread.
Hypothesis on the #LindsayMenz allegations that @SenFranken grabbed her ass during a photo at a fair, while he was senator.
Let's start by looking into the EXIF file of the photo.
2/ The EXIF data contains #metadata which is like a blueprint of the photo. It shows #camera model, date created, modified, flash on/off, basically everything. The image is attached.:It shows the modified date: 11/19/17 and the time of 16:49.02 or 4PM49mins.
This image is odd and
3/ I will explain why the data is odd. That is the entire list. The metadata should be multiple pages. See the attached file for an example of one image. This is from the #AlFranken "grope" picture. (It is fake 2 see my pinned tweet) See how much more info there is? BUT IF YOU
