Good gesture but Gaelic’s increased visibility disguises a sad truth: the number of fluent Gaelic speakers is in decline in Scotland.
Social media is introducing Gaelic to a wider audience than ever before, yet the sad irony is that its existence among traditional communities is under threat.
The densest populations of Gaelic speakers are concentrated in Eilean Siar (the Western Isles), the Highlands and Argyll and Bute.

Thread. Racism in Italy.

Last Friday, in the small town of Civitanova Marche on Italy’s Adriatic coast, an Italian man beat and strangled a Nigerian street vendor (pictured) in broad daylight. Image
Alika Ogorchukwu, 39, had apparently tried to sell the alleged assailant and his girlfriend a packet of tissues and then asked for some change.

Ogorchukwu was beaten with the crutch he used to walk and bystanders failed to intervene for the four minutes it took to kill him.
Italian police have excluded any possible racist motivation behind the violence.

It's important to note: Italy has historically failed to respond adequately to hate crimes.

Thread. Last time I've made top 10 bands from Azerbaijan.

Today I'll be focusing on my fave top 10 artists / bands from Central Asia. Again, if you are seeking new music, this is the thread.
🇺🇿 Yalla

In my opinion, the greatest music band from Central Asia. Tashkent-based band's music features elements of traditional ethnic folk tunes and poetry of Uzbekistan and other Central Asian areas.

🇰🇿🇦🇿 Jah Khalib

Azerbaijani-Kazakh rapper often makes music about an authentic Central Asian identity founded on Turkic and Islamic roots.

Selling high-caffeine soft drinks to children under 16 should be outlawed in Azerbaijan and other countries.

Belarus made Bizon energy drink is heavily promoted across Azerbaijan and Central Asia.

You see ads about Bizon everywhere: Hip-hip videos, TV shows, billboards & so on. Image
Some people still don't understand dangers of the high-caffeine drinks, which include sleep problems, headaches, stomach aches and tooth decay.
Sleep is especially important for the health and wellbeing of adolescents and poor sleep can negatively affect physical and mental health, as well as educational attainment.
