Insecurity getting worse under @MBuhari, says GEJ Dear @GEJonathan I saw this statement from the @thecableng credited to you, it reminds me of the saying 'don't drink & drive'. I will advise you not to drink & tweet, Let me remind you with this #Thread things you have forgotten

2. May 2011 bomb blasts at Shadawanka barracks mammy market Bauchi with 10 dead & several wounded…

You know what I find really ironic & sobering about the wave of anti-Fulani bigotry sweeping the country? It’s not new. Only that when it happened, 50–60 years ago, the targets were not the Fulani,but instead the Igbo, suspected/ unfairly accused of an Igbonisation Agenda
This is Nigeria for you. Those who are ignorant or forgetful or disdainful of history rush to make pronouncements where even angels fear to tread. Those who respect history open themselves up to its sobering truth, the sense of measure and nuance that it leaves behind.
Maybe it feels comforting right now, to hold an entire ethnic group responsible for Nigeria’s security challenges. But to successfully do that you have to willfully blind yourself to the simple & obvious truth that no ethnic group in Nig. has ever held a monopoly on criminality.

Pearson's moving to a digital first publication strategy.

Some thoughts and questions.

Note how this strategy is deeply aimed against used book sales.
"Pearson plans to lower its prices so that fewer students are tempted to buy secondhand books. It will also push its rental program so that fewer books ever enter the secondhand market."

The Supreme Court is slated to pronounce its order in the Karnataka MLAs case tomorrow. However, it has a very interesting situation at hand. #Thread
The question regarding maintainability has thrown up some interesting scenarios.
The contention by Speaker challenging maintainability is rested on the reasoning that a Court cannot issue a direction to the Speaker to act within a particular time frame.

In half an hour @vonderleyen will make a last ditch effort to convince MEPs to back her candidacy for the European Commission. The vote- unless the EP president puts the last minute amendment- will take place in the evening. #Thread
1. There are various controversies around her candidacy. Some say that she has had bad track record as a defense minister in Germany and that she has limited knowledge about other important EU dossiers.
2. Others simply don't like the fact that that she was not a lead candidate and that she is a compromise candidate and acceptable to CEE countries- they even imply that this already disqualifies her.

Ancient India was not purely religious. If You see main Hindu Scriptures like Vedas, Upnishad, and Samhita they are collection of philosophies, scientific data and facts. They worshipped nature and were experts in Science, astronomy, mathematics.
#Thread #IndicHistory
Just because the language is Sanskrit, Leftists reject it to be unscientific and religiously motivated.
In recent time ie last few hundred years, many distortion n misinterpretation has been done too and readers who don't know Sanskrit tend to believe it.
Let's dive in brief
#RigVeda: It's full of the geographical data about India. Research on Rig Veda have proven and can be further verified that Our Civilization was River based and most important one was Saraswati. We worshipped nature. eg Agni, Varun, Indra.

Une longue énumération de ce qui a changé en 30 ans : #Thread
Nos parents fumaient, en voiture comme à la cuisine. J'ai même vu des profs fumer en classe, et j'ai même fumé dans un avion de ligne.
Les automobilistes roulaient bourrés sans se poser de questions et on dormait sur la plage arrière pour traverser la France à 160km/h dans des voitures sans aucune sécurité.

I’ve been asked why Americans should care about events in Puerto Rico. Here are some reasons (among many). #thread #Telegramgate #RickyRenunciaYa #RickyLeaks 1/
Demonstrators in Puerto Rico are demanding accountability, an end to cronyism, misogyny, racism, homofobia, media manipulation/attacks, and lack of empathy at the highest levels of power—this should all sound familiar to a mainstream US audience.
Puerto Rico’s political problems are not disconnected from the problems of US governance at large—they are similar but with the added intensity of an inherently anti-democratic imperial system of governance which makes change harder to enact and even imagine.

Die @faznet hat @c_lindner am Wochenende zum Thema #Seenotrettung zitiert. Hier der Vollständigkeit halber sein gesamtes Statement an die FAZ, das die Antworten auf einige Fragen & Anmerkungen hier bei #Twitter enthält: #thread. 👇
"Es ist eine zivilisatorische und rechtliche Verpflichtung, Menschen nicht ertrinken zu lassen. Unterlassene Hilfeleistung ist nicht zu rechtfertigen. Auf der anderen Seite darf es keine Beihilfe zur Schlepperkriminalität bei Wirtschaftsmigranten geben.
Die Lösung muss darin liegen, dass wir mit dem Flüchtlingshilfswerk der Vereinten Nationen in Nordafrika menschenwürdige Unterbringungsmöglichkeiten und legale Fluchtwege nach #Europa schaffen.

Ein extrem rechter #Soldat der #Bundeswehr soll laut #WeltamSonntag / @investigativ_de im Juni 2017 in #München ein Attentat auf die Bundesverteidigungsministerin Ursula #vonderLeyen vorgehabt haben. Ein #thread dazu.
Es geht um Samstag, 24.06.2017. Von der Leyen besuchte damals die #Bundeswehruniversität in München-Neubiberg & einen "Beförderungsappell" mit 600 Soldat_innen am Schloss Nymphenburg. Die Sicherheitsvorkehrungen waren extrem hoch, Pressefotograf_innen durften nicht nah ran etc.
Die Gefahr durch einen von einem oder mehreren Rechten Soldaten verübten Anschlag wurde also sehr ernst genommen. Es gab eine Hausdurchsuchung und ein Ermittlungsverfahren der Staatsanwaltschaft München.

1) #Breaking TRES important à 2 titres.
D'1 part le président US #Trump renvoie les 4 représentantes progressistes (AOC, Pressley, Tlaib et Omar) à leurs présumées naissances étrangères, leur ordonnant de taire leurs critiques sur le gouvernement US ou de "rentrer chez elles"...
2) Or, 1 seule des représentantes en question (Ilhan Omar) n'est pas née aux #EtatsUnis. Mais pour le président US #Trump, si vous êtes née de parents étrangers immigrés (Tlaib), portoricains (AOC) voire Afro-Américains (Pressley), vous n'êtes pas quand même pas citoyenne US.
3) S'il ne faut pas commenter tout tweet de #Trump, celui-ci est 1 véritable AVEU, très signifiant politiquement. Pour le président US, quand vous êtes enfant d'immigrés ou réfugié, vous n'êtes pas étatsunien et vous restez 1 étranger. Idem pour Portoricains et Afro-Américains.

Akbar created the system of Subah (provinces). This system of Subah, made administrative reforms more efficient & Bengal was the most important Subah of the Mughals.

Initially under the rule of Emperor Akbar, there were 12 Subahs, which rose to 22 under Shah Jahan.

Kabul, Lahore, Multan, Ajmer, Gujarat, Delhi, Agra, Malwa, Awadh, Illahabad, Bihar, and Bengal were the initial 12 Subahs under Akbar.

Each Subah had a governor called a Subahdar. Each Subah was further divided into Sarkars or districts.
The Subah of Bengal, comprising of both Bangladesh and West Bengal was the richest Subah (province) of the Mughal Empire.

The administrators of the Bengal province were refugees from the Safavid Empire.

POURQUOI l’accord commercial entre l’#UE et le #Mercosur est dangereux pour l’agriculture française et pour son autosuffisance alimentaire.

👉Ce qui n’est jamais dit par les commentateurs et rarement compris par les économistes et les politiques.

#THREAD ⬇️⬇️⬇️
On présente souvent les accords commerciaux comme un danger pour les normes environnementales et sociales, ce qui est parfaitement exact. En s’interdisant l’usage des droits de douanes, on pousse les producteurs à produire au moindre coût afin de rester compétitif.
Dans ce contexte, toute réglementation écologique ou sociale qui tend à augmenter les coûts de production risque de ruiner les producteur locaux si elle n’est pas appliquée en même temps par les partenaires commerciaux.

So Pastor Chris said "Husband means master" and people said "It's in the bible" but did any of Jesus teachings really support that line of thought? I did some digging and the answer is no.

I'll explain since today is #Sunday

Warning: Long #thread
Over, the last 3 days. I've heard a lot about how having a penis makes one an automatic superior. One guy even said yesterday that man was created first so that makes him superior, as if the first car ever manufactured is better than the 2017 model.
So I decided for once to examine gender equality right from the religious (biblical) perspective and I found some really interesting stuff.

First off, God designed both the man and woman in His own image equally (Genesis 1:26–27).

On ne sait pour ainsi dire rien d’Angelino Dulcert. Tout au plus suppose-t-on que son véritable nom était Angelino de Dulceto (ou Dulceti), qu’il était italien, qu’il est passé par Gênes et que, quelque part vers 1320, il a émigré à Majorque. #Thread
Si le nom de Dulcert est parvenu jusqu’à nous, c’est grâce aux portulans (i.e. des cartes maritimes) qu’il nous a laissé. Datés de 1325 (ou 1330) et de 1339, ce sont des témoignages inestimables de la vision que l’on se faisait du monde à l’époque.
Accessoirement, ils comportent quelques petites bizarreries amusantes comme, ci-dessous, l’espèce de disque qui apparait au Sud-Ouest de l’Irlande sur son œuvre de 1325/1330.

Tiktok is easily the most underrated and underappreciated product of our times even despite the scale it has achieved.

IMO, every founder, VC and product-person *must* fall in love with how and what of Tiktok.

Here's why...

Let's start with a little history:

YouTube launched at a time when video content was about to go mainstream and hosting the videos with efficient playback was initial major pain-point.

They solved exactly this and built one of the most successful product out of Google.
But YouTube failed to solve it any further for video creators.

Why do you think you, me and most people don't upload videos on YouTube actively?

Bcs there's friction. It's damn hard for most people to learn how to edit and produce above average videos.

For the records, Alpha Beta investigation is ongoing. We have nothing to hide.
As a matter of principles, the EFCC does not deal on hearsay, we act on facts and data.

The EFCC will not allow anybody to drag its name and reputation into the mud for ill-motive reasons.

Calling Netaji Bose as a Nazi supporter is a Historical lie.

We are talking about a politician who described himself as a Leftist Anarchist and praised USSR a lot.

To understand the dynamics of British India during World War 2, we need to go back to 1932.

Long #Thread Alert.
The year is 1932 and the world is ruled by Two Superpowers.

A) The British Empire
B) The French Empire

India was Britain's most important colony and the Simon Commission, Meerut Conspiracy, Chittagong Armoury raid & the hanging of Bhagat Singh had raised public anger.
"Thank God for the French Army!"

This was Winston Churchill's remarks after his learning of Hitler's rise to power in 1933.

The French Army was the best in the world and its Navy was the 2nd best in the world after the British Royal Navy.

Our #children are a reflection of us. The way we behave, good or bad, is how our kids will behave too, especially in their formative age.

Lessons from our cat, Coco 🐈.

I am not a cat person, I totally don't see the point of cats as pets 🤷‍♂️.

But when the LOML @rahmau 💕decided she wants a cat, what options do I have other than to support her get a cat. That's how Coco came into our home, as our cat 😿
I repeat, I'm not a cat person 😾, so I didn't participate in the tideous training of the cat, the litter training is the most annoying, if you know you know. I also wasn't friendly with the cat. I was always scolding it, berating it and pushing it away.

Ce soir, j'ai assisté à une "soirée-débat sur l'Anthropocène" organisée par un cercle d'étudiants local. Et je suis déprimé. #Thread (c'est mon premier, soyez indulgents :D)
La soirée se déroule en deux parties : diffusion du documentaire (en partie coupé pour raisons de timing) "L'homme a mangé la Terre", sur la révolution industrielle. Documentaire Arte avec pleins d'images tristes, et des fusées qui décollent, symbole de l'hubris humain. 2/n
Documentaire plutôt sympathique, quoique très orienté #CéléLobbies (avec un accent assez malsain sur la famille Rockefeller). Il y a une ambiance un peu complotiste qui me chipote. Tout est de la faute des industriels qui obligent le peuple à consommer. 3/n
