On Sunday, @joerwallen & I broke the story of Pinky\u2019s miscarriage for @Telegraph. Today Pinky's husband Rashid and brother Salim were released from jail. Now the question arises that who misuse new Law? Bajrangdal? If yes, Will they be punished?#Love_Jihad pic.twitter.com/z18ItTVCsL
We found that 1) Muskan is very weak after her miscarriage, and the Moradabad District Hospital where she was admitted has not given her the treatment papers, nor any course of antibiotics and painkillers to prevent post miscarriage infections that can affect fertility in future
2) The first dose of antibiotics & painkillers Muskan received is today - after we got her to speak on phone to a senior gynaecologist in Delhi, who explained that antibiotics are always prescribed following a miscarriage, to prevent infections.
3) Muskan alleges that the hospital administered abortifacient injections after which she suffered a miscarriage. What is indisputable is that the hospital deliberately failed in its duty to a patient, a) by not telling Muskan re the miscarriage b) by not prescribing antibiotics
and c) by withholding her treatment papers which every patient is supposed to receive

Sources : The charge sheet filed by CBI in the #HathrasCase is filled with flaws and three innocents have been roped in as accused, in spite of them having strong alibis.
While the prime accused did commit the act and there is strong evidence against him, 1/n
the remaining three were implicated only based on their ‘tower location’ of their cell phones. Two of the accused who are implicated were employees of a dairy located a kilometre away from the scene of crime (SoC) and witnesses working in the dairy, 2/n
had given statements that the two accused were working in the dairy at the time of crime. The other innocent accused was present in a place away from SoC and witnesses had deposed that he too was not in the SoC.
CBI comprises fine officers with investigating skills. 3/n
They always do their job with due diligence keeping in mind the reputation of India’s premiere investigating agency. But, superiors, who are IPS officers on deputation to CBI always toe the line of the ruling regime and act as mercenaries. 4/n
Highly placed sources in CBI say, the Director of Prosecution of CBI, one Ms Sudha Rani concurred with the findings of the investigating officers that only one accused need to be charge sheeted. Ajay Bhatnagar, a 1989 batch officer of Jharkhand cadre, 5/n
So far, none of the representatives from KFOR, UNMIK, UN police, who stayed in Kosovo & Metohija has written a single word of praise in the books about the so-called independent Kosovo! 👇
More than 30 representatives of various military and civilian missions from around the world in #Kosovo and Metohija since 1999 - #KFOR, #UNMIK, #UN police, #OSCE financial police, #EULEX etc. - wrote books about the real situation in the southern Serbian province! 👇
No positive words were written about #Kosovo, which in 2008 declared unilateral independence, by absolutely none of them.
The most common conclusion is that Albanian Kosovo is a criminal drug mafia artificial creation, it is an island of lawlessness! 👇
Those who wrote books about #Kosovo after staying in Serbian province for certrain amount of time, were in high positions and places in Kosovo and Metohija and knew far more about the real situation inside Kosovo, which illegally declared independence back in 2008. 👇
"Independence suits those in command: Thaci himself who runs the oil business, Bexhet Pacolli who needs a hole in which he will store his money, Ramush Haradinaj and Agim Çeku. And they don't care about independence."

I have some thoughts:
As somebody who bootstrapped ~4 companies, I feel like I had to make some clearly suboptimal decisions early in them for lack of what is, in hindsight, not all that much money. But there's a huge gap in the product space for investment options.
It's weird: you can get $25k from Amex trivially, and angels are very willing to write a check for that much, but you have to make representations about your goals/ambitions/market/etc which don't really apply to everyone.
And so you see the traditional angel/VC ecosystem fund companies where honestly the returns are probably not there, and this is knowable pretty early, but the chase of them will wreck what could have been a perfectly happy business.
(To make the math work for traditional VCs the company has to at least have a market-appropriate shot of $100 million a year. There are a lot more $10 million a year companies than $100 million a year companies. That is *not* a bad terminal outcome for founders/employees.)
This is Long but it will end with a BOOM
With no constitutional authority to do so, Congress created a separate form of government for the District of Columbia, a ten-mile square parcel of land (see, Acts of the Forty-first Congress,”
Section 34, Session III, chapters 61 and 62).
The act — passed when the country was weakened and financially depleted in the aftermath of the Civil War — was a strategic move by foreign interests (international bankers) who were intent upon gaining a stranglehold on the coffers
and neck of America.
Congress cut a deal with the international bankers (specifically Rothschilds of London) to incur a DEBT to said bankers. Because the bankers were not about to lend money to a floundering nation without serious stipulations, they devised a way to get their
foot in the door of the United States.
The Act of 1871 formed a corporation called THE UNITED STATES. The corporation, OWNED by foreign interests, moved in and shoved the original Constitution into a dustbin.
With the Act of 1871, the organic Constitution was defaced — in effect vandalized and sabotage — when the title was capitalized and the word “for” was changed to “of” in the title.
I'm still pissed about the bait and switch they pulled by telling me I'd be working on Chrome, then putting me on this god forsaken piece of shit on day one.
This will be a super slow burn that goes back many years. I’ll continue to add to over the next couple of days. I’ll preface it with a bunch of backstory and explain what I had left behind, which made me more unhappy about the culture I had come into.
I spent most of my early career working for two radical sister non-profit orgs. I was the only designer working on
anywhere from 4-5 different products at the same time. All centered around activism and used by millions of people.
It’s how I cut my teeth. Learned to be the designer that I am today. Most importantly, the people I worked for are imho some of the greatest people on the planet. Highly intelligent, empathetic, caring, and true role models for a young me. I adore them.
You might not know who they are, but if you’re reading this then you have definitely seen their work. Maybe OpenCongress, or Miro, or maybe Amara which is Vimeo’s partner transcription service. Definitely Fight for the Future, our internet defenders, which was shortly after me.
These are my observations based on what I saw and the evidence that’s been collected so far. I reserve the right to adjust my analysis as needed.
Let’s talk about the organization of the coup first. Seeing some people insist that the coup must have been highly planned and coordinated.
Yes and no. This was a #StochasticCoup. We’ll see little evidence of direct communication between Trump and the insurrectionists.
Within the insurrectionists, there was not one group that executed the storming of the Capitol.
Rather, there were a number of smaller groups working independently towards the same goal. I expect you’ll see little evidence that these various groups communicated with each other.
What you will see is detailed planning and coordination within these small groups.
Then there were the joyriders, those Trump supporters who weren’t directly involved in any plotting but who were more than happy to go along for the ride once the coup was in motion.
After four years, the insurrectionists were carefully attuned to Trump’s messaging.
Every tweet and statement of his was treated as marching orders and carefully dissected for meaning.
It’s why shutting down Trump’s Twitter account was so important.
