1. vorrei vedere un dibattito serio sulla #sorveglianzaDigitale, perché quello che verrà messo in piedi rischia di essere il più grande sistema di sorveglianza mai messo in piedi in una democrazia occidentale
2. se davvero si andrà verso il modello #CoreadelSud con un sistema di #sorveglianza che mette insieme #DatiSanitari,#localizzazione,#filmatitelefonino,#carteDiCredito, sarà un sistema senza precedenti in una democrazia occidentale
3. non voglio sentire stupidi dire: tanto i #datiSanitari saranno #anonimi. NO, signori: #deanonimizzare #datisanitari è un gioco. Leggete fior di pubblicazioni e articoli

Boarded flight today from #NewYork to #Beijing via #Incheon, here's a thread about my experience so far (in context of the #Covid19 #outbreak and measures that #countries, #airlines and #airports are taking for it).
Was surprised that there were no temperature checks or any other #Covid19-related tests for outbound passengers at @JFKairport (drastic contrast with airports in #Asia that have been checking temperature of every OUTBOUND passenger since ~2 months now).
One would expect a country like #USA to take its leadership role in the world more seriously. Shocked to see this lack of responsibility towards what is now a GLOBAL threat. (Also, no hand sanitizers at checkin counters like #Phuket airport had >1 month ago)

1. voglio farvi riflettere sulle soluzioni all'italiana. La settimana scorsa, un professore di economia, @FabbioSabatini, ha iniziato a proporre modello #SudCorea. Evidenze scientifiche che effettivamente funziona? ZERO
2. l'economista @FabbioSabatini citava uno studio di alcuni ricercatori di #Oxford: la corsa al conformismo italiano è partita subito, non importa che 1) lo studio NON fosse neppure soggetto a peer review e quindi non avesse il marchio di informazione scientificamente verificata
3. e non importa che lo studio fosse stato finanziato dalla #LiKaShingFoundation. Chi è Li Ka Shing? L'uomo più ricco dell'#Asia con grandi interessi dalle costruzioni alle compagnie telefoniche

🇨🇳 #China (1) | The question is no longer if, but how hard, the #coronavirus will damage Chinese economy (and its trading partners) in 1Q20.
🇨🇳 #China (2) | A blockage of 16 cities (~50 million people) coupled with the extension of the Lunar New Year holiday and prohibition for Cos to return to work soon implies that 1Q will fall below 6% for the first time since QoQ figures are recorded.

A thread about how well #China is playing the international game to become the most prominent economy in this decade, by @swardley.
@swardley Some key points about #China's long-run #strategy:

- For the #CPC (Communist Party of China) the #market is only a tool to leverage the power of the Chinese people, culture, and state, and not the holy sacred truth, as most western liberals believe. See @swardley's explanation.
@swardley - #China, through its CPC, acts as the #world's #biggest #buyer of goods & services, and hence, is able to impose its conditions (read law, prices, access to intellectual property, etc) to all multinationals that want to access the Chinese market, no matter how big they are.

ABRO HILO. El león en #Europa.
Hace poco, cuando hice RT de un tuit de @serbiaireland que mostraba este cuadro de Velizar Simeonovski: un #león acechando un uro, mucha gente me comunicó su sorpresa porque hubo leones en nuestro continente. Voy a ampliar aquí esa información.
@serbiaireland Y me refiero al león africano de toda la vida, vamos, al Panthera leo de los documentales de @la2_tve. No me refiero al león de las cavernas (Panthera spelaea), que vivió en Eurasia durante el Pleistoceno y se extinguió tras la Edad de Hielo. Ese león era "primo" del africano
@serbiaireland @la2_tve Esta es el área histórica de distribución del león. Como se puede apreciar, fuera de #Africa, hubo leones en toda #Asia occidental, Asia Menor y los Balcanes. Esa Península fue el territorio europeo donde habitó el león.

How Extinction Rebellion 168 climate change zealots - incl. a baronet's Cambridge-educated granddaughter - are paid £400 a week to bring mayhem to our streets. Tory MP called on #HMRC to launch an immediate investigation into the XR tax affairs
mol.im/a/7566515
/1.
Paid XR activists who call for collective guilt & punitive #taxes on the western #taxpayer are enabling new breed of green capitalism, that make select few fabulously rich, while the rest of us choke down meatless hamburgers & pay our #politicians to tax us into oblivion
/2.
Climate Mobilization’s call to action has also managed to unite leftists & anti-capitalists with the global elite. Extinction Rebellion’s call for “net zero” atmospheric carbon is shared by The World Bank, and a host of neoliberal think-tanks & financiers

Laila T Ollapally - unless mediation is as lucrative as other forms of dispute resolution, we're not going to attract the best candidates.

Journalist and peace campaigner #JohnPilger says there was “not a shred of evidence” to suggest #Iran was responsible and nobody should trust the #Trump administration.

Mr #Pompeo, without presenting evidence to support his claim, said his allegations were “based on intelligence
, the weapons used, the level of expertise needed to execute the operation” and more.

President Donald #Trump repeated the claims today during an interview with Fox News, alleging that a video proves Tehran’s guilt.

The video is said to show an Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps
boat approaching one of the tankers and removing an unexploded mine from its hull. But the ship’s Japanese owner contradicted the #US interpretation yesterday, saying footage showed something flying at the boat above the water line #Trump promised the US won’t “take it lightly.”

1: The global banking industry is showing signs of renewed health:

i. Deep capital reserves-Tier-1 capital is at decade-high ~12.6%.
ii. High liquidity: Loan-to-deposit ratio fell to~90%, as comp. to 120% in 2007
iii. Innovation: Investment in digital capabilities & partnerships
2: Banks have taken an axe to costs, yet profits remain elusive (falling ROE and P/B Multiples), leading to depressed valuations.

The unstoppable march of ‘Four Horsemen’ —Disintermediation, Commoditization, Unbundling/Rebundling, and Invisibility— continues.
3: Technology is breaking up traditional value chains into new stacks.

—Traditional Model: Banks vertically integrated. Competition between banks with similar offerings.
—New Model: Modularization. Specialized service providers compete on product innovation and distribution.
