#UPU

A UPU é a União Postal Universal. Com 145 anos de existência UPU é uma das organizações mundiais mais antigas ainda em atividade.

Pois bem: o Governo #Trump já avisou que se não adotarem suas propostas, os EUA vão sair da UPU dia 01/10/19.
A UPU é responsável por todo rastreamento internacional de qualquer pacote, carta, cartão postal, qualquer coisa enviada por um serviço postal. É ela quem negocia as tarifas entre serviços postais, e é o orgão que assegura que na maioria dos casos não ocorra extravio.
O Gov. Trump já havia manifestado interesse em pular fora do barco no passado, mas agora botou algumas propostas na mesa e uma data limite. Amanhã começa a última reunião antes dessa data.

#Neoliberalism at work: Why work for structural reform when you can donate a dollar on top of your $25 steak and $15 bottle of kombucha?

Let’s take a minute to actually break down the #WholeFoods variety of neoliberal #capitalism & the illusion of consumption ending #poverty.
Here in the US #WholeFoods & gentrification go together like peanut butter & jelly.
Gentrification effectively prices anyone below a certain income level out of a neighborhood, by jacking up rents & the price on consumer goods & services.
#WholeFoods is the poster child for this, with their ridiculously inflated prices on staple foods, but they take it to another level. This self-important emporium of yuppie chow isn’t just selling you overpriced organic cruelty free bean sprouts. They’re selling you an image.

After having read so much about how Amazon does not really lose money but constantly grows without reporting too much of a profit, I decided to finally take a dive into its financials over the last 15 years. In only about 20 minutes, my mind is already blown. 1/n #amazon
I started at 2003. Their financial statements start with cash flows. I'm not sure if that's the US GAAP convention but if it isn't, right out of the gate it says something about management's priorities. 2/n
In 2003, Amazon reported a net income of $35m. But operating cash flows of an incredible $392m. Two important bits stand out for me in there. Stock based comp. of $87.7m and an increase in accounts payables of $167m. That's ~$254m of cash you get to expense. 3/n

Jim Watkins, owner 8chan testified to Congress yesterday.
He choose to where a Q pin.

#8chan may be back online as early as next week.

Unfortunelly it will be targeted by bad actors to shut it down.
Racism, anti-Semitism and calls for violence are some tactics they use.

I interrupt the relentless assault on our Mother Earth led by the ruling classes, to bring to your attention to critical information by @Mision_Verdad regarding a new coup attempt underway in Bolivia. This relates to the #Amazon fires media saturation. #NPIC #Imperialism
@Mision_Verdad Capitalism never sleeps. Nor does imperialism.

Of course we should eat more vegetables and less meat, but the lie, that says that burning the Amazon, to plant GM Soya to ship across the world, is #sustainable is just that.

A lie.

Next time you sip a Soya Latté in a compostable cup, toast Monsanto, as they toast the Amazon.
In Ireland, if you want to farm you buy or lease land at €15,000 an acre.

In Brazil, if you want to farm, you buy or borrow a box of matches.

Monsanto will sell you GM seed that is #glyphosate resistant.

No weeding needed and Europe will buy it.
In Europe, we are being conned by the lie, that is Soya

Burning the #Amazon to plant and poison GM Soya for our plant based diets and compostable cups makes #PalmOil production look green!

Eat less meat, but look local, look sustainable and look beyond the hype.

Thank you

My post on LinkedIn about my interview experience in 1996 @amazon blew up. But a bunch of people asked me why I left after 3 yrs and boomeranged 14 years later. So I thought I’d tell the story here #AWS #amazon #techjobs

Everyone assumes that if you’re “successful” by some measure they seen you got there through a series of brilliant chess moves or you were an overnight #success. Occasionally that’s true, but far more often it looks like this
My first 3 years at amazon were amazing. We changed the world of #ecommerce, survived competitive threats that were supposed to kill us, invented lots of 😎 #tech that’s now commonplace in websites. But it was also exhausting. I worked 6-7 days a week, every week for 3 years 😓

#China wants to seek a "calm" end to its ongoing trade war with the U.S., as #AsianMarketsCrumbled and #ChinaCurrencyPlummeted to an 11-year low following the latest #tariffs on #550billion in Chinese goods announced last Friday by #TrumpAdministration
foxnews.com/politics/china…
News of the possible opening in negotiations came shortly after @realDonaldTrump threatened to declare a national emergency that would result in American businesses freezing their relationships with China, by imposing its own retaliatory tariffs on $75 billion in U.S. goods.
@realDonaldTrump In response, Chinese Vice Premier Liu He told a state-controlled newspaper on Monday that "China is willing to resolve its trade dispute with the United States through calm negotiations and resolutely opposes the escalation of the conflict"

If you’re watching the #Amazon burn and worry about the environment, and if you wonder about #beef and why it is in the news re the environment often, and you’d like to know our view on this then this is the thread for you ...
Climate change and a biodiversity catastrophe are two of the biggest challenges that we face, and the way we think about food, agriculture and, specifically, meat as consumers and as a society is a massive part of that.
It’s true that beef production can be worse for the environment than the production of other foods, especially when those animals are intensively fed with grains and when deforestation occurs to meet demand, which is on the rise globally.

சுற்றுச்சூழல் முக்கியத்துவம் வாய்ந்த #Amazon மழைக்காடு, உலகில் வெளியடப்படும் Carbon di oxide வளியை பெருமளவில் உட்கொள்ளும் திறன் வாய்ந்தது மட்டுமல்லாமல் உலகின் 20 சதவீதம் ஆக்ஸிஜனை அளிப்பதும் அமேசான் காடுகள் என்பதால் தான், அதை உலகின் நுரையீரல் என்று குறிப்பிடுகிறார்கள்.
உலகின் முக்கியத்துவத்தை பெற்றிருக்கும் அம்மழைக்காட்டில், இந்த ஆண்டு மட்டும் 72,843 காட்டுத் தீ விபத்துக்கள் ஏற்பட்டுள்ள தாகவும், கடந்த ஆகஸ்ட் 15 க்கு பிறகு மட்டும் 9,000க்கும் அதிகமான தீ விபத்துகள் அங்கு ஏற்பட்டுள்ளதாக ஆய்வுகள் தெரிவிக்கின்றது.

@EmmanuelMacron The image on the left shows a fire from 1989, and the image on the right has been online since at least 2012. A number of other outdated and unrelated photographs have also been circulated as if they depicted the 2019 #AmazonFires.

@EmmanuelMacron Plankton that are plants, known as #phytoplankton, grow and get their own energy through photosynthesis and are responsible for producing an estimated 80% of the world’s oxygen. They need #CO2 to thrive.

@EmmanuelMacron Many use fire to maintain farmland or to clear land.
Typically, activity peaks in early Sept & mostly stops by Nov.

Anthropogenic #CO2 emissions, combined with #deforestation and increased #human-caused ignitions have created the perfect storm for #megafires in the #Amazon #IPCC2014
Warmer temperatures as a result of increased #anthropogenic #CO2, #detorestation and increased #fire activity can cause #positive #feedbacks that push the #Amazon towards a #tippingpoint resulting in a shift from #rainforest to #savanna forests
A shift from #rainforest to #savanna ecosystems will have global consequences. The rainforest creates its own weather by recycling moisture from the jungle. The trees absorb #CO2 and release #oxygen, literally the air we breathe.

White people of all genders being violent is not new in this country, so the usage of “white supremacist” makes it seem like it’s something else rather than white people- white people-ing. They are behaving consistent with the power their whiteness confers.
I can become a trillionaire while my staff makes minimum wage without consequence and people will have this knowledge and still buy from my company #amazon
I can lie and say a black person whistled at me during Jim Crow as a consequence the black person is murdered and I can write a book about how I lied later in life as I’m still alive to tell it with no consequence #carolynbryant
