"#Homoeopathy is a branch of universal #medicine based on the ‘principle of the like’ (Similia Similibus Curentur = Like treats Like) and in #minimum doses." .. I
It means that a #substance in a massive dose generates #pathological #symptomatology; has the possibility to #cure it, if applied in the #minimum doses obtained by #dilution and intense #agitation, in other words, #homoeopathic #succussion. .. II
#Homoeopathy is derived from a #Hippocratic #concept developed by the #German #physician, Samuel Hahnemann (1755–1843), with serially #diluted #medicines (1:9, 1:99, 1:999 and others) in water-ethanol vehicle alternating #dilution with #succussion. .. III

A few hours ago, the #Israeli #military #demolished farmland west of Beit Jala in the area of al #Makhrour—land belonging to the Abu Eid family, one of the original #Christian families residing in Beit Jala.
According to one of the family members, they have owned this farmland for at least one hundred and fifty years.

In 1993, part of their farmland was destroyed to build Route 60—an #Israeli road which runs north and south through the #WestBank,
connecting illegal #settlements to #Jerusalem. This is now the second time that this family’s #land and #agricultural #resources have been destroyed for the sake of a #settler road. As usual, #Palestinians are paying the price for settler-colonial conveniences.

The last thing #AmericanFarmers need right now is for more food processing plants to shut down. But that trend won't end until Trump truly recognizes the dignity of agricultural work and gives immigrant food and farm workers the respect they deserve and the protection they need.
Our farmers are already on the brink. Dairy farmers are flushing their milk, corn producers are seeing closure of ethanol plants, livestock farmers are getting hit with the trade wars and coronavirus disruptions of export markets.
Now, Trump’s anti-immigrant agenda has put the entire food system at risk. The vast majority of our agricultural workforce is foreign born. You can’t protect our #FoodSupply without protecting immigrant and refugee workers—which Trump is refusing to do. I

Plant the land - Lessons from the past
1- I'm not sure if you all remember that food prices increased dramatically in 2007-2011. Food price indices increased worldwide by 88% with across-the-board increases in prices of meat, dairy products, cereals, sugar, & oils
2- by 46%, 83%, 112.5%, 139.2%, and 126.4% respectively.
Several reasons stood behind such increases including higher oil prices, higher demand, speculations, stronger $ etc...so the macro context was totally different at that time, but we can still learn from that experience.
3- Higher international food prices were transmitted into local market driving up inflation & raising the prices of majorly consumed items in Leb. As a result, consumers experienced a reduction in purchasing power which was expected to alter food consumption patterns

@batchelorshow Tom @sullivanradio of #TalkMedia Network said he’s spoken with #Farmers and residents in the heartland states most affected by #China’s retaliatory #Tariffs on US #Agricultural products; they support President Trump tackling the #Chinese regime’s trade policies.
