“What is the cost of lies? It’s not that we’ll mistake them for the truth. The real danger is that we’ll hear enough lies, then we no longer recognize the truth at all.” : Legasov in HBO's "Chernobyl"

"আত্মোপকারীকে বনবাসে বিসর্জন করা যাহাদিগের প্রকৃতি, তাহারা চিরকাল আত্মোপকারীকে বনবাস দিবে–কিন্তু যত বার বনবাসিত করুক না কেন, পরের কাষ্ঠাহরণ করা যাহার স্বভাব, সে পুনর্বার পরের কাষ্ঠাহরণে যাইবে। তুমি অধম–তাই বলিয়া আমি উত্তম না হইব কেন?"

The Revv mobile app for Android is such a poor experience. Takes ages to complete loading the screen on WiFi. And less said about mobile data the better.

It isn't a great look when the trackers are set to be ON by default. It is obvious as to why they would be this way. However, if they are aligned with a privacy centric report it just undercuts the proposition of the playbook being shared.

So here's a question : COVID-19 has caused no end of grieving in families and if the brands are so engrossed in "Father's Day" promotions what steps did they take to not trigger more sorrow and grief? And was it really necessary to have the blitz of mailers?

He added: "I know I'm not alone in missing the hum of activity, the energy, creativity and collaboration of our in-person meetings and the sense of community we've all built." www-bbc-co-uk.cdn.ampproject.o

Hmm... 'hum', 'energy', 'creativity', 'collaboration'.

Did the draft of National Curriculum Framework for Teacher Education 2021 (mentioned in NEP 2020) get published and a public consultation happen? Also, is there a reasonably comprehensive review/critique of NEP 2020?
