Day 17. As one of the radiologist said at the beginning of my journey, I will get used to the treatment. In more ways than one, things are becoming more familiar, the smell of the room, the process, the sound of the machine but still unpleasant. My team of young radiologists comprises two ladies and two men. They do their best to assure and provide comfort. To celebrate the completion of my midway, I shared a box of chocolates with them to express my thanks.#radiotherapy
I am really thankful and sincerely appreciative of the support I receive from my family and friends and my colleagues at work; the well-wishes, the offers for companionship for my hospital visits and social meetings, the assurance that my plants at work are growing well and prayers. All the support are as important as my need to assert my own ability to take care of myself. I am so glad that my significant other understands that I would rather drive myself (even when he comes along), go treatment on my own, gallivant or just doing stuff as I have always been doing like facial treatments or getting groceries. Self efficacy reinstates....at least, for me.
Located in the Sabarmati suburb of #Ahmedabad , Gujarat, #SabarmatiAshram was one of the many homes of Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of our nation. It originally belonged to a friend of Gandhi’s, Jivanlal Desai, a barrister and friend of Gandhi, which was originally established on on 25 May 1915 and was later on used by Gandhi for carrying out various activities such as agriculture and animal husbandry, in addition to other pursuits which called for the need of a much larger area of arable land. So two years later, on 17 June 1917, the ashram was relocated to an area of thirty-six acres on the banks of the river Sabarmati, and it came to be known as the Sabarmati Ashram. The Sabarmati ashram receives about 700,000 visitors a year, collecting, processing, preserving and displaying archival materials such as writings, photographs, paintings, voice-records, films and personal effects.The charkha used by Gandhi to spin khadi and the writing table he used for writing letters are also some of items kept arranging exhibitions on different aspects of Gandhi’s life, literature and activities.
It was from his base here that Gandhi led the Dandi march also known as the Salt Satyagraha on 12 March 1930. In recognition of the significant influence that this march had on the Indian Independence Movement the Indian government has established the ashram as a national monument.

On Sunday, December 13, 1981, at On 6 am, Polish Radio broadcasted General Wojciech Jaruzelski's speech in which he informed Poles about the constitution of the Military Council of National Salvation (WRON) and the introduction of Martial Law in Poland under the decree of the Council of State. On December 12 before midnight, communist authorities began arresting opposition activists and Solidarity. Within a few days, about 5,000 people were placed in 49 internment centers. people. For propaganda purposes, several dozen people from the previous team exercising power, including Edward Gierek, Piotr Jaroszewicz. Preparations for the imposition of martial law lasted over a year and were conducted with particular care. The ZOMO branches occupied the premises of the regional boards of Solidarity, detaining the persons staying there and securing the communication and printing devices found. Armored and mechanized units were directed to the cities, which were located at the most important transport nodes, outgoing routes, major intersections, official buildings and other strategic facilities. On the basis of the decree on martial law, basic civil rights and freedoms were suspended, ad hoc procedures were introduced in the courts, strikes, demonstrations were prohibited, militias and the military were able to identify and search everyone. A curfew was introduced from 22 to hours 6 o'clock in the morning, and a pass was required for trips outside the place of residence. Correspondence was subject to official censorship, telephones were turned off, preventing, among other things, calling for ambulance services and fire brigades. On December 14, occupational strikes began in many large industrial plants independently of each other.
In 40 plants, violent pacification of strikes took place, with the use of ZOMO and army troops. On December 31, 1982 martial law was suspended, and on July 22, 1983, it was dismissed, while part of the repressive legislation was retained. The exact number of people who died as a result of martial law was not known. I also invite you to @history_pl_color
Another person sees through the "marketing structure" as well
@dk_movement Here’s how agenda setting works.
They don’t overtly tell you what to ‘care about’; they dictate the finite list of what you can look at.
They don’t overtly tell you ‘what to do’; they dictate the finite list of ‘options’ so you THINK you’re choosing freely.
Go to your Instagram home page and take a look at the top of the screen. What are the biggest characters you see? Numbers. Number of posts. Number of followers. Number of accounts you’re following. Think that’s an accident? Number of posts = “you should care about the volume of content you contribute to this platform.” Number of followers = “you should care about this metric when evaluating the success or failure of your account.” Number of people you follow = “you should care about how much you are consuming the content of others who use this platform.”
Then consider the red notifications at the bottom of the screen. They read like a slot machine every time you pull up your account. Pull the lever (open/refresh the app), take a chance and see what you’ve ‘won’ (how much attention and approval you’ve gotten from others). Think this is also an accident? Wake up.
This is happening. Nobody is exempt. And this is one way you give away your independence as an individual. You don’t have to care about the stuff they want you to care about. In fact, in many cases caring about these things is sabotaging your chances of using these platforms to get what you really want.
As a practitioner and/or teacher, your independence in deciding what you value, what you do, and what you contribute is directly correlated with quality of practice, not to mention quality of life. I care about this. And I think most of you do too.
Practices for facilitating independence of the individual will be the central theme of my upcoming collaboration with @ryanorrico —which is coming in a couple months. You’ll want to be in on this. Pay attention 📝.
Kenya | The territory that is now Kenya has had human inhabitants since the beginning of the lower Paleolithic period. Like much of Africa, it was plagued with colonization, and the wanted establishments of trade routes and naval bases from Great Britain, India, and Portugal. The fight for independence began in the 1950’s with the Mau Mau Rebellion. Over the years, protests grew to the point of a state of emergency being declared and wide spread arrests of many Kenyan independence leaders, including those who had little or no connection to the Mau Mau Rebellion. In 1962, a Kenya African National Union (KANU) - Kenya African Democratic Union (KADU) coalition government formed, including leaders from both parties, Jomo Kenyatta and Ronald Ngala. After reorganization’s of their internal government, and a compromise with the British government, Kenya attained independence on December 12, 1963 with Jomo Kenyatta as the first prime minister and president of Kenya. Happy Kenyan Independence Day! ————————
Graphic by @bykellymalka 🌻🌻🌻Something I have been thinking about lately is optimizing my alone time.
I spend most of my day according to normal-bodied people’s standards and rules, but when I am home I am free to be my full self (whatever that may look like.) Being in a flare up lately with really significant pain can very easily be isolating.
The first change I want to make is inviting other people into my world.
Rather than constantly pushing myself to fit into the able-bodied world, inviting the able-bodied I’m so that it doesn’t have to feel so alone.
The second change is how I spend my alone time. I am trying to have designated tasks or activities for those bad days that give me something to look forward to.
That can be as simple as a new book to read or practicing a skill. Or connecting with other people through FaceTime or other methods to let them know how I’m doing.
Learning to ask for help and communicate with people is a continual work in progress for me, but I really believe in the benefit of being your best self advocate.
If you don’t nurture yourself so you can flourish, you miss out on the beauty of your best self. 🌻🌻🌻

Tanzania | Due to the Tanganyika regions location on the east coast of Africa, it was easily accessible to slave traders and colonizers from various countries. East Africa was seen as an opportunity for German colonial expansion, and in the late 19th Century there had been some success in that endeavor. Local resistance was fierce, leading to the formation of independent movements. The Tanganyika African National Union (TANU) was founded in July of 1954 and was lead by Julius Nyerere. Support for TANU grew and by the 1960’s the first elections were planned. On December 9, 1961, Tanganyika became an independent republic. Julius Nyerere, was elected Prime Minister and later President of what came to be known as Tanzania. This new name was picked as a clipped compound of the two states that were being unified, Tanganyika and Zanzibar. Happy Tanzania Independence Day! ——————————
