Is #Russia’s sentiment that they want to know what #Ukraine really thinks, and if Ukraine can, “stand on their own,” in the international community, with security even, and the idea is how could you if you cannot stand up to our troops, though,
which, is interpersonally, abusive, internationally, too, people have kinship, and, we believe in them and offer support, I am thinking of the transition from #colonialism, I believe, #monarchy, and, people do this when they have #trauma, and are family, a community, this can

Errol Walton Barrow and the Postwar Transformation of Barbados: The Late Colonial Period (Volume I) by Hilbourne A. Watson uwipress.com/9789766407117/… #UWIPress #Barbados #ErrolWaltonBarrow
Beginning in the 1920s, Barbadians and other British West Indians began organizing politically in an international environment that was marked by a severe capitalist economic and financial crisis that intensified in the 1930s.
The response in the British Caribbean during the 1930s was in the form of rebellions that demanded colonial reform. The ensuing struggles resulted in constitutional and political changes that led to decolonization and independence.

Rihanna is arguably the most commercially successful Caribbean artist in history. She is Barbadian and has been unwavering in publicly articulating her national and regional belonging.

Thursday's #Coronavirus megathread starts here with the best #Covid19 global analysis and round up available on Twitter.

First a little quiz, answer in the next Tweet:
Do you know which country has had the most recorded cases of Covid19 as a percentage of population?
So I hope there was no cheating... I'll leave some blank lines here too in case some later viewers don't want the answer just yet...
.

.
So the nation with more #Covid19 cases than any other based on population is highly vaccinated #Seychelles at more than 20% infected.
Today I spent quite a long time being filmed/interviewed by @bbcturkce about #Covid19 and #Turkey. Not sure how much they will use, let's see.

Coincidentally the cameraman Efe, just happened to be in Kyiv as one of those using Ukraine for a 10 day stop off to avoid hotel prison!

CIBC Halts US$797 Million Caribbean Sale as Regulators Reject Deal

Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce is now stuck with a business that had been declining in value

@business Image
#CIBC announced the sale of the two-thirds stake in CIBC FirstCaribbean to a company run by Colombian billionaire Jaime Gilinski in Nov 2019
The deal, would have left CIBC with a 25% stake in the #Barbados-based bank. This valued FCIB at about US$1.2 billion, less than half of its $2.8 billion value when CIBC took over most of the business.

🤯 En 1994 se jugó el partido más loco de la historia:

-Barbados se metió un gol en contra porque le convenía empatar antes que ganar por un gol

-Granada en los últimos minutos atacaba para los dos arcos porque le servía tanto un gol a favor como en contra

Conocé la historia👇
🏆 El gen del partido más loco de la historia estuvo en el extraño reglamento de la Copa del Caribe 1994:
🇧🇧🇬🇩 #Barbados y #Granada jugaron el último encuentro del Grupo 1. Estos eran los resultados que le servían a cada uno:

#Barbados #UnitedKingdom #Bridgetown #Queen

Despite their different origins (Barbados and England), their head of state is Queen Elizabeth II. But that could soon be over. Image
Because the island state of Barbados wants to break away from the Commonwealth and become an independent republic. "It is time to leave our colonial past behind us," quoted the Governor General of Barbados, Sandra Mason, from a speech by her Prime Minister.
"The people of Barbados want a head of state from Barbados." There could be no doubt that the country had the ability to govern itself. The goal is to take the step on the 55th anniversary of the island state's independence - that would be in November of the coming year.

HematologyTweetstory #25: Dr. Walter Clement Noel, the first patient clearly described with what is now known as sickle cell disease (SCD). I published this fascinating & tragic story in 2010 @MayoProceedings following @USPS release of a stamp about SCD./1
mayoclinicproceedings.org/article/S0025-…
Credit is due to Todd L. Savitt, PhD, a medical historian @EastCarolina, who did the legwork flying to Chicago & Grenada in 1987 & identified Dr. Noel from sketchy details in a 1910 case report. He published his findings in a paper in @JAMA_current in 1989./2
In a 2010 paper in #JNMA @NationalMedAssn, Dr. Savitt described just how he tracked Noel's history down. It required both persistence and serendipity. Savitt has published extensively about race and medicine - the intersection of which is clearly part of this story, too. /3

As I was going through the Internet today. I found out that #Barbados has a population of 286,461 people and its area is 431 km².
Its currency is known as Barbados Dollar. 1 Bajan Dollar equals to 1146.60 Tanzanian Shilling.
This is to say 1 Bajan dollar equals 0.50 United States Dollar. A most popular Barbados Dollar exchange rate is the GBP to BBD rate which is 0.40... If I was an investor I would go for this country.
FUNNY THING ABOUT THIS COUNTRY, ON 20 FEBRUARY IS RIHANNA'S BIRTHDAY AND IS ALSO A PUBLIC HOLIDAY.

El #FMI publicó un paper elogiando la reestructuración de deuda de #Barbados luego de declarar el default de la misma. Image
"La reestructuración de la deuda de Barbados fue posterior al default, una opción que pudo haber sido determinada por un cronograma muy ajustado de pagos, con un nuevo gobierno asumiendo el cargo solo semanas antes de que tuvieran lugar considerables vencimientos de deuda externa Image
Si el gobierno hubiera decidido hacer estos pagos, las reservas habrían caído a niveles peligrosamente bajos, cubriendo menos de un mes de importaciones."
