Shameful cowardice on the part of #Lula and the govt of #Brazil. Completely dishonourable, mean-spirited, weak behaviour.…
"Some in the Brazilian delegation said the presence of the Ukrainian leader [at the G7] was a “trap” to force a meeting, while others complained they only learned about the visit when Lula was already in Japan, the officials said"
"Many in the Brazilian delegation were nervous that Zelenskiy would be included in the so-called family photo of summit leaders on Saturday, the officials said, and felt relief when he didn’t show up. Japan had said earlier there would be no press availability for Zelenskiy."

#Architecture | Oscar Niemeyer le starchitecte et urbaniste brésilien a laissé trois œuvres ignorées par tous les spécialistes. Ne cherchez pas, elles sont toutes en #Algérie !

- Thread - 🇧🇷🇩🇿

Oscar Niemeyer, l’Algérie et l’architecture de la Révolution ImageImageImageImage
1) Empêché de travailler suite au coup d’Etat militaire au Brésil, Oscar Niemeyer (communiste) s’exile en Europe en 1967, puis à l’invitation du président Houari #Boumediene, s’installe à #Alger en 1969 où il passera 6 ans de sa vie jusqu’en 1975. ImageImage
2) Le Pdt Boumediène demande à Niemeyer de développer un urbanisme qui donnera au monde une vision moderne de l’Algerie, en rupture avec l’architecture coloniale française. Jason Oddy a séjourné en 2013 en Algérie pour 📸 cet héritage architectural moderniste. ImageImage

Brazil Free speech is endangered!
Brazilian President Lula da Silva is pushing the congress to vote PL2630
The “official” reason is to avoid fake news and misinformation like Covid and also hateful speech But, always in early dictatorships, they have “good reasons” to (continue)
silence people, and then, everyone can guess what will happen, as the history itself teaches us.

Some strange points in the project:

Social networks, will be from now on, part-responsible for what is posted, and they are obligated to remove contradictory content, that in reality will make the social networks avoid political topics, and forbid any controversial theme, such as corruption…

⭐️European Union accuses Brazil's president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva of FAKE NEWS: European Commission reacts to Lula's remarks on the war. “It is not true that the EU and the US are helping to prolong the conflict.”
PS - Fake News peddlers accusing others of fake news🫡😂…
Peter Stano, a spokesman for the EU claimed that countries provide armaments to help Ukraine defend itself from Russian invasion.
"In reference to the Brazilian President's remarks, I would just like to remind you of some basic facts. Fact number one is: Russia (and only Russia) is responsible for the illegitimate and unprovoked aggression against Ukraine," EU Spokesperson Peter Steno said.

Day 419 of the war in Europe.
#Russia's illegal war & full invasion of #Ukraine.
The day Bunker Boy emerged from his Kremlin bunker!

Yesterday was very interesting with Wagner troops confessing war crimes, more Russian fires, collaborators + more, here⬇️

The scale of the war is difficult to comprehend for those living far away. But @SkyNews brings it to life with this report.

15% (381) of all education establishments in #Ukraine have been damaged or destroyed by #Russia in the first year.
#Russia's President Putin (or at least a lookalike) has appeared in #Ukraine's Occupied Territories.

He is said to have flown into #Kherson region to visit the "Dnepr" Command of troops and then taken a helicopter to the "East" Command in #Luhansk.

Dang! President Lula gives a revolutionary speech in Shanghai, openly challenging the dollar hegemony! 😱

At a speech at the “BRICS Bank” — whose new president is former Brazilian President Mrs. Rousseff — Lula said this:

“Every night I ask myself why all countries have to base…… President of Brazil giving ...China-Brazil bilateral trad...ImageCurrent and former Presiden...
Source: (Surprising that FT reported on the speech!)…
Here's the clip from Lula' speech about the #USdollar.

This will go down in history like the "I have a dream" speech.

I have a dream that one day countries can trade in their local currencies or even in a BRICS currency (that's backed by gold and commodities)!

#Brazil’s president Lula will be travelling to #China this week and meeting Xi Jinping on Friday.

Why does Lula’s Brazil matter to China? And what are Chinese experts recommending Beijing do in order to strengthen its ties with Brasilia?


▫️ 7 researchers from the Institute of Latin American Studies, which is part of the prestigious Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS).

▫️ Lead auhtor: Zhou Zhiwei (周志伟) – Director of the Centre for Brazilian Studies, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS). Image

1⃣ Lula’s Brazil is seen as having fundamental political differences with the #UnitedStates.

2⃣ Under Lula, Brazil's diplomatic focus is expected to be reoriented towards the #GlobalSouth and, most importantly, away from the US.

A study from #Brazil finds 1 in 4 adults who had mild #COVID19 demonstrated cognitive deficits. The average age of study participants was 38. See what happened when they were asked to copy a diagram. We are not prepared for this. #MedTwitter #LongCovid… Image
Many people are replying “I wouldn’t have been able to copy that drawing accurately even before #COVID19.” This is true. On avg, 5-8% of population are unable to reproduce this. What concerned researchers was that in this study of ppl w/ mild COVID, 25% of them could not.
There are less complex drawings that can look for more obvious visuoconstructive deficits. We often ask patients to draw a clock showing a specific time when screening for dementia. Here’s a published example of those drawings (unrelated to COVID).… Image

Hello and welcome to Friday's thread on what is Day 387 of #Russia's insane and injust war on #Ukraine.

I've done a news thread every single day since Russian troops and warplanes crossed the border.

To catch up on Thursday, click and scroll here:

While #Russia is stalling over agreeing to a 120 day extension of the grain deal, the Terrorist State is secretly stealing Ukrainian grain and exporting it from #Crimea according to the RIAMelitopol channel.

They publish these photos they claim show Occupiers loading the grain.
The figures for #Russia's daily losses again show a very big number of artillery systems destroyed by #Ukraine, plus another helicopter downed.

RU soldiers killed is down almost 300 on yesterday but still a very, very high number.

⭐️#BRICS countries overtake the #G7 in share of world GDP.
#Brazil, #Russia, #India, #China, #SouthAfrica (BRICS) now provide 31.5% of global #GDP, with further projected growth - while Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, United Kingdom, and United States (G7) provide 30.7%.
A look at #BRICS countries' GDP growth and GDP Growth rate clearly shows that the US hegemony of the world economy is on the brink of collapse by 2030, leading to the shift in power balance to the eastern part of the world.
Post-Russia Ukraine conflict, #BRICS countries showed remarkable resilience contrary to consumer inflation and energy inflation in Europe and the US including the G7 bloc.

Even some democracies, such as #Brazil and #Philippines, "are going to increasingly require our support," says USAGM CEO Bennett before House Appropiations Foreign Affairs subcommittee.

🧵First #IDEX2023 coverage: Counter-drone manufacturers say they are increasingly miniaturizing & simplifying systems to meet rising demand for man-portable weapons, as recent conflicts have emphasized importance of mobile capabilities. But this is risky:…
2. Warren Brown, Fortem Technology VP of Marketing explains that the purpose & ways portable drones interceptors are used today have changed over the last decade "Historically, security detail & protection of major events, key infrastructure has been focused on fixed solutions."
3. More recent conflicts in the Middle East and #Ukraine have shifted the focus to ‘on-the-move’ systems that provide advanced radar detection capabilities, ease of deployment and portability, low overall cost of operation as well as low per-use cost,” he said.
