2/ He explained that on the ground people complain due to ignorance and feeding the selfish agendas of those that benefit from the "Zimbabwe is shit" mantra, but in their industry, they exporting millions weekly in Flowers, macadamia nuts, bananas and avocados. Expecting to grow
3/ Expecting to grow from $10mill USD a month to $100Million in 4 yrs and already growing much better since the Not Coup in 2017. He basically said, stop complaining and start grafting. Work with the end in sight, and take advantage of the many new opportunities.
4/ He explained that Zimbabwe only grows wheat because of UDI in the 60s and its NOT an ideal crop in Zimbabwe, rather buy from Canada. Flowers, nuts and fruit are. He told me that if anyone manages to fill 1% the potential Zim produced in 2000, they would be richer than Strive.
5/ I was warned not to try live up to the Zimbos expectations of instant results but to happily grow slowly. Selling 2 cabbages a day after a day of selling 1 is a 100% growth. Be steady, be consistent. Plan with the end in mind.Hanzi smart people don't care who's in Gov.
White Europeans have long obsessed over the supposed relationship between race, culture & climate. 19th century colonists (supported by scientific & medical opinion) believed “tropical” solar radiation attacked white people’s nervous systems & rendered them infertile. 2/
Pith helmets were often worn by colonizers alongside other protective paraphernalia such as red vests & “spine pads” worn under the shirt to protect the nervous system from the feared “actinic ray.” Spine pads were standard issue in British Army kit in early 20th century. 3/
Other convenient medical recommendations included no manual labour outdoors for whites, holidays to cooler climates & no white children in the colonies beyond age 5. The pith helmet was part of a pseudo-scientific discourse that enforced class as well as racial domination. 4/
The pith helmet is sometimes used to denote a “frontier” spirit of adventure & exploration. This is wrong. Their historical social role was to emblematize white fragility and anxieties, as well as blurring the distinction between white civilians & colonial police/army. 5/
Even within the country there are people who question it’s need find it to be obsolete an incongruous tribal marking in this day and age; however one looks at it, it is lack of understanding of what the bindi entails, it’s purpose, it’s symbolism, it’s health benefits if any 2/n
śringār is a major aspect of a vaidikā’s life. It was not just the women who indulged in beautification but so did the men. kriśṇa is always adorned in his favourite colour yellow, a diadem with a peacock feather, a garland of Vaijayanti flowers, his flute and so on. 3/n
These are his vibhutis, with or without them he is the embodiment of joy and freedom but these are his individual expressions of that very same joy! Most important of all he sports kasturi tilakam on his forehead, made of musk paste!(tilak is a vertical line to a bindi’s dot) 4/n
Most Hindus, who take after such lofty examples, enjoy alankaraṇa (mehendi/ bindi) and ābhūśaṇa (bangles/ anklets etc). Adornment and Accessories are part and parcel of day-to-day life for a vaidika. 5/n
C'est partie pour un petit #thread sur les bases de la #radioactivité et de la radioprotection dans le #nucléaire 🤓
À l'origine de ce thread, quelque chose que j'avais lu il y a quelques temps : quelqu'un qui avait peur que les rayonnements qui sortiraient de Cigéo irradient tout le monde aux alentours.
Et là, j'ai bien du admettre que la radioactivité est un concept pour certains fort obscur.
La radioactivité, c'est le phénomène de transformation d'un atome en un autre atome, qu'on appelle décroissance, qui s'accompagne, pour des raisons de conservation de la masse et de l'énergie (rien ne se perd, rien ne se créé, tout ça tout ça ) d'une émission d'une particule.
Une particule de matière, et, parfois aussi, d'un photon (une onde électromagnétique, de la lumière, donc) très haut en énergie : on parle là de rayons X (parfois) ou Gamma (souvent).
Il y a aussi des cas où des atomes « excités » (chargés en énergie) se désexcitent en émettant juste un photon gamma. On parle aussi de radioactivité, même s'il n'y a pas de changement de l'atome en un autre.
2/ Firms (an previous investor) playing hard ball & issuing 3x liquidation preference at tough moments.
3/ Pitting founders against each other during a conflict.
4/ GPs undermining the CEO with their executive team.
5/ Flying secretly to a potential acquirer to blow up an M&A deal.
This is the most mature we've ever seen Snapchat's CEO, thanks to the great get of this internal memo by @alexeheath. Spiegel recognizes his mistakes, and lays out a clear path not to domination, but to sustainability
And who suffered a massive 'narcissistic blow' on Nov 8, 2016.

2. Thinking critically - evaluating the truth of competing claims, using evidence that you have triaged with logic & experience, is difficult.
You have to suspend inherent bias & reach an objective conclusion.
The leftist mindset is incapable, as the Kavanaugh smear proves.
3. Critical thinking is an ancient tradition, a set of skills, passed on from ancient Greek thinkers (esp Socrates) and before.
The core message? Be sceptical.and humble. What others tell you is true, may not be. Test it against objective criteria, not gut feel or 'the herd'.
4. Any person with reasonable critical thinking skills, can see that #DrFraud's allegations against Kavanaugh are not credible.
Not because she's a leftist stooge.
But because objectively, the numerous inconsistencies and untruths in her tale, render it not believable.
5. When you have no critical thinking skills, such as Griffin, all you have left is emotion. The only way to win an argument is via bullying, hectoring, smear and violence.
You must FORCE the other side to cower and hide. To do this, you need a MOB, with pitchforks.
Here is why... [mini thread]
- It helps you think deeper thoughts by offloading temp memory and forcing you to solidify ideas, and structure your thoughts.
- You learn how to support your arguments
- You learn how to structure your story for the highest impact
- You start speaking better = better meetings, more influence, selling your ideas, leadership buy in, etc.
- You remember what you learn = you learn faster and build on those learnings and avoid relearning lessons
- You can see your growth over time
- You can create influence as others can learn from what you share.
- Writing meeting notes = more fruitful meetings as you document learnings/decisions/action items
How do you get better at writing?
Read, read a lot
3. Direct learning
Find a class, article, video, learn the technical ways to improve
I think I'll write an article soon about my first month of living in Canggu, Bali 🏖️
So my goal for today:
➡️ Try to setup an Kubernetes Ingress with Let's Encrypt
➡️ Work on the Gladys part of the Gladys Gateway
Depending of how easy it is to have the Gladys Gateway backend deployed on Kubernetes, I really hope I can deploy a first alpha beginning of next week, but it's not sure yet
I wish I could deploy it this week, but the Kubernetes poc took longer that expected 😄
