Making Aadhar compulsory for child nutrition at Aangawadis is criminal callousness.
India is already at the bottom of the global child nutrition index.
Modi govt must withdraw this destruction of our future. https://www.thequint.com/news/india/with-aadhar-compulsory-for-receiving-free-nutrition-millions-at-risk-of-no-food
Something that can't be solved by social condemnation or higher taxation, but simply out to be banned outright.
Thousands of us must substantially reduce our emissions just to make up for one space tourist.
#OtD 2 Jul 2018 Abhimanyu, a left-wing student leader in Kerala, India, was murdered by Islamist fundamentalists after writing the slogan "down with communalism" on a wall on the Maharaja's college campus in Kochi.
This is Alan. Alan ended his own life on 7th June 1954. He laced an apple with cyanide and ate a bite from it. He did this because the British government chemically castrated, humiliated and prosecuted him for being gay.
Alan is the reason why a chunk is bitten out of the Apple logo…in honour of Alan Turing.
Ok so what did he do? He invented computer science and using his first designs he decrypted the Enigma code - the machine base encryption that the Nazis and the German military used to communicate secret commands to each other in world war 2 - and hence he both saved millions of lives and brought us into the modern age of computing.
Pride month isn’t just about dancing on floats in gold hot pants or flying a rainbow flag. It’s about remembering that everyone has a right to be happy, love who they want to love, and recognise the outstanding contribution that everyone can make in a society free of fear or prejudice.

War Stocks Are Surging As Russia-Ukraine Conflict Rages On: Lockheed Martin, Northrop Up 20%
Nothing new. But pointing out again. Reason why this war is not ending and probably will continue for a long time...the sheer profit motive of these corporates! Countries are spending their budgets to prepare for war instead of supporting human development.
"Bank of America expect America’s defense spending to rise to between 3.5% and 4% of GDP."
What use will the profits of oil companies that are burning the planet be when it is fully on fire, which may well be much sooner than we imagine? Why are we collectively letting this happen?

As an amateur #astronomer , I have had focused for the last couple of months in #solar imaging. The sun follows a cyclical pattern of activity every 11 years approximately, called a solar cycle. This cycle alternates between lulls in activity (the "solar minimum") and lots of it (the "solar maximum"). We are just starting a new solar cycle, so activity is just starting to ramp up. In other words, now is a good time to start observing our 🌞 star! (WITH THE PROPER FILTERING EQUIPMENT OF COURSE 😎 ).

Looking forward for meaningful conversations.
