Again, #earlymodern Europe was a paper age. Let's have a closer look into this allegorical painting of 1629, and discuss what can be seen. A thread for #paperhistory #bookhistory #communicationhistory
A manuscript paper book used for accounting or writing purposes. These details are not new to (book) historians and are often highlighted. Yes, only a few could write, but many came into contact with paper. Here, they inform the writer what to write - on paper.

Broadsheets were often glued or pinned to walls. Here, this paper broadsheet is positioned under a small bookshelf. Bonus for experts of early modern #bookhistory: #backwardsbooks

Timeline: How the Dutch came up with their Coronavirus Strategy of Years of Yo-Yo Lockdowns,

It is a sort of a hybrid between 'Allowing the virus to run its course unchecked' [Sweden] and 'Maximum containment of the virus' [New Zealand]…
There exists a later document also:

"Why the Dutch Covid-19 strategy is ineffective and inhumane:"

"The Netherlands is currently retreating from its “intelligent lockdown” as one of the hardest-hit countries in the world."

"Although the strategy of allowing the virus to spread while building herd immunity was never abandoned, the Dutch have somehow escaped much international scrutiny – until now."…

Back in January, Samaneh Pary, Mohammad & Kiyumarth Mozaffari filmed propaganda events of #Iran's Islamic Regime in #France & #Netherlands for the opposition TVs which I am cooperating with.Regime has identified them & is now threatening them through fired members of #Farashgard!
Here is example of the videos recorded by them showing supporters of the regime attacking opposition activists in #Paris & #Amsterdam back in January & February. Iran International TV, BBC & Manoto TV, three opposition news channels broadcasted them:
A cyber or troll army led by a Twitter user named #Reza_RezaeiKhosravi (@ Korikodill) is blackmailing & sexually harassing opposition activists. #RezaeiKhosravi is stepson of Masoud Zaribafan (former vice president during the #Ahmadinejad).

Johnny & James: "Wir müssen nicht #hamstern" 🐹 (1940)
[via @OCCII_Amsterdam]

Die jüdischen Musiker J&J (=Arnold "Nol" Siméon van Wesel & Max Salomon Meyer Kannewasser) aus #Amsterdam wurden Opfer des Holocaust

Nach der Besetzung der Niederlande durch die Deutschen durften J&J ab 1940 erst nur noch vor jüdischem Publikum spielen, dann gar nicht mehr.
1943 wurden J&J in das Durchgangslager @kampwesterbork deportiert, wo sie mind. 1x auftraten. J&J bei der Zwangsarbeit in Amsterdam, wo sie Flugzeugteile demontieren mussten
1944 konnten J&J trotz der Internierung während ihrer Zwangsarbeit in #Amsterdam 6 Stücke aufnehmen, darunter die #Westerbork Serenade.

You can utilize chart patterns in two different ways.

1) Trade price between well-defined boundaries (need to find a clear chart pattern at early stages)

2) Trade breakouts through chart pattern boundaries

I favor 2.
Following examples will highlight why I favor:

1⃣Breakout strategies
2⃣Horiozontal chart pattern breakouts
3⃣Rectangle setups with several tests of chart pattern boundary
BAE SYSTEMS. Breakout after several tests of well-defined horizontal boundary. No pullback and challenge to chart pattern boundary. Bullish continuation completing above 200-day. #RECENT #BREAKOUT #ALERT #UK #FTSE

They say “We can’t do that. We’re not Amsterdam.” You respond “Amsterdam wasn’t always like that either,” showing before & after transformations illustrating that cities we admire made CHOICES. They make more tired excuses. (1e van der Helststraat, 1978 & 2005 HT @fietsprofessor)
WATCH: Amsterdam is removing 10,000+ parking spaces for cars in their centre city, to make more room for more people-places, walking, & biking. This great @Streetfilms video explains why & how.

Just more evidence that #Amsterdam wasn’t “always this way.”
“A lot of Dutch cities made mistakes. In #Utrecht, they paved over canals. So their status as a cycling nation wasn’t always a given. It took a lot of hard work, a certain degree of stubbornness, and forward-thinking politicians to get where they are.”…

Speaking at @Abantu_ in South Africa was last leg in 2019 of #FeministGiant World Tour. It was a privilege & thrill to start it in #Sarajevo with #Bosnia’s first Pride and end it in #Soweto with #AbantuBookFest. Revolution in Sarajevo to revolution in Soweto. It’s been an honour!
Along the way,speaking at Pitchwise in #Sarajevo, @strandbookstore in #NYC, @RMWAdam in #Amsterdam, @McrLitFest in #Manchester, @akefestival in #Lagos, @wcfbook in #Chicago, also in #Brooklyn, #Ottawa, #Sydney, #Melbourne & turning #Australia upside down via TV. It’s been a ride!
So many incredible audiences & new friends along the way. Many thanks to all who came to hear me speak. Many thanks for the love and the gifts. So many powerful experiences. I’ve returned home full. Time now to reflect and then write about these three months. #FeministGiant

| #draadje | Pampus sluit zich aan bij @wemakethecity ​festival en neemt je zondag 23 juni op sleeptouw voor o.a. een duurzame rondleiding over het eiland. Echt een unieke kans om hierbij te zijn en – ons kent ons – het kost maar een prikkie!

📷 Tiny Pampus World by @wdejager
Dit keer geen verhalen over het beroemde gezegde of over de militairen die klaar waren voor de vijand die nimmer kwam... Wel krijg je in kannen en kruiken te horen over hoe we bewust bezig zijn met een schone en mooie toekomst.

📷 Pampus Island by @mrperezident
We tonen je hoe het koesteren van erfgoed hand in hand kan gaan met hypermoderne plannen om tot een geheel duurzame zelfvoorziening te komen op het gebied van water en energie.

This Wednesday, I was scheduled to speak at @DeBalie in #Amsterdam. After consulting with Dutch friends whose opinions I trust, I believe that De Balie is not a venue I want to bring my views to. My apologies to all those who bought tickets to see me speak.
It was one particular event that took place at De Balie (that was brought to my attention on Saturday) which began a closer look for me at the centre and made me question whether I wanted to speak there. I explain my position 👇🏽. I hope to return to #Amsterdam soon.

Today my article ‘Al de swarten die hier ter stede comen’ - about an Afro-Atlantic community in seventeenth century Amsterdam - was published #openaccess in @_tseg. The article is in Dutch, so I’ll do a short introduction in #thread here.… #twitterhistorian
From the moment the Dutch became active in the Atlantic world, people of African descent came to Amsterdam. Their presence is evident from baptismal and marriage registers and from seventeenth-century notarial deeds.
The earliest marriage of an African in Amsterdam that I have encountered was already at the end of the sixteenth century. On January 2, 1593 the 29-year-old Bastiaan Pietersz of ‘Maniconge in Afryken’ and Trijntje Pieters from Amsterdam registered their marriage.

I’m an avid history geek 🤓 and I got this idea from @GippersChutzpah!
My follower count is currently stuck in the mid ages. I’ll tweet some Jewish history milestones from along the years, according to my follower count. So come on, I’m 4 followers short of the first story...
On 13/12/1204, Moshe Ben Maimon AKA #Maimonides (Greek) and Ha’Rambam (Hebrew), died at 69 in Egypt.
A Philosopher, Physician, Astronomer and one of most important #Jewish Scholars of all times.
Buried in Tiberias @Israel, upon final request to be buried in the ancient homeland
WOW! 3 followers away from yet another milestone of #JewishHistory!
So far we learned about some pogroms 😠(1171 France, 1190 England) and Maïmōnídēs dying 😢(1204 Egypt).
JewishHistory is filled with sorrow and darkness but it gets better in the 2nd half of the 20th century 😉

Looking at my #Gucci, it's about that time. It's #Cancer time. (Older heads will know, I likely don't literally have a Gucci. But a stroll down hip-hop memory lane is apt for this sign, no?)
And this is special for me since there might be folks of a particular sign, either by Sun, moon or rising, who are your Ride-or-die folks. Well, #Cancers are mine. I don't have to go looking for them or that. It just happens. Consistently. So, they're dear people for me.
Once consciousness has explored dimensions of risk & curiosity in #Gemini, it seeks out safety, responsibility, containment & renewal in #Cancer

Prof. René van der Duim @wur is onze eerste gast van vanavond onderzocht of en op welke manier toerisme in Afrika kan bijdragen aan natuur en milieu. #tegenlicht #tegenlicht030
"Klimaatverandering is een groot probleem (...) Nu wordt @Stichting_AM aangesproken, maar moet je wel bij hen zijn, en niet bij @airbnb of bij @easyJet? (...) Vlieland is een goed voorbeeld. Daar is decennia geleden een maximaal aantal bedden afgesproken." @wur #tegenlicht
"Als een weekend Barcelona 500 euro kost, ga ik niet, maar voor twee tientjes ga ik er wel heen (...) Kerosine wordt niet belast, en is 5x zo goedkoop als benzine (...) Treinen zijn nog steeds per land geregeld. Daar hebben @transavia en @easyJet geen last van." #tegenlicht

Any place can be transformed from a place for cars to a place for people. It takes vision & will. #Amsterdam 1976 vs 2017 via @amsterdamized
Amsterdam chose to give their streets to cars. Then they chose to take them back. There's nothing magical about #Amsterdam. They just chose.
Think your city doesn't have much in common with #Amsterdam? As city archive photos show, it used to.
