ABOUT CUBA 1 - What is happening in Cuba that is so special that they talk so much?! There was a march. I even saw the President of Cuba at the march, talking to people. Cuba has already suffered 60 years of US economic blockade, even more so with the pandemic, it is inhumane.
2 - I'm tired of seeing a banner against Lula, against Dilma, against Trump... People demonstrate. But you haven't seen any soldier in Cuba with his knee on a black man's neck, killing him... Cuba's problems will be solved by the Cubans.

Are you watching the epic football finals this weekend? Before today's #CopaAmericaFINAL and Sunday's #Euro2020Final, read my essay on domestic abuse and the men's game. tl:dr it's not the football, it's the patriarchy. #ENG #ITA #Brazil #Argentina
Patriarchy enables and protects the toxic masculinity that makes big tournaments and match days hell for too women and children. feministgiant.com/p/essay-when-f… #CopaAmerica #EURO2020
During the 2002, 2006 and 2010 World Cup, incidents of domestic abuse vs women rose by 38% when #England team lost and increased by 26% where England won or drew, compared with days when there was no England match.
Hence campaign 👇🏽 "If #ENG gets beaten, so will she." #EURO2020

For football lovers like me, this weekend is epic! The men's #CopaAmerica final between #Brazil and #Argentina on Saturday and the men's #EURO2020 final between #England and #Italy on Sunday. We know that domestic abuse is associated with men's tournaments. Let's take a look.
First: On/off the pitch, from managers to players to men who support them: patriarchy fuels a dangerous cocktail of toxic masculinity in football & many other men’s sports. Football tournaments didn't invent patriarchy. The latter drives the men’s game & the harm it takes home.
#Brazil: So egregious is the enabling and protection of football superstars in Brazil, “The Brazilian Football Association could likely field an entire team of active players accused or convicted of crimes related to gender violence or sexual assault.” bbc.com/sport/football…

I remember lists of queer players during the Women's World Cup. Where are the lists of openly gay and bisexual men's footballers in this weekend's #EURO2020 final and #CopaAmerica finals?
How when we know that at least 10 percent of any population belongs to the LGBTQ+ community, is there not a single out player in the men’s top leagues while the women’s game has a long history of openly gay players?

Patriarchy. That’s how. feministgiant.com/p/essay-when-f…

#BigStory

The Brazilian government’s deal to import 20 million doses of Bharat Biotech’s Covaxin has sparked an investigation into corruption—raising questions about the involvement of President #Bolsonaro and about the vaccine itself.
In a deal signed in February, the Brazilian Health ministry agreed to pay $320 million for 20 million doses of Covaxin—at an eye-watering price of $15 per dose. The agreement was signed with a ‘middleman’ company called Precisa Medicamentos.
Bolsonaro’s mishandling of the pandemic is currently being investigated by a parliamentary commission. 2 big government contracts—one to buy Covaxin and the other to purchase raw materials for the drug Hydroxychloroquine—have raised a lot of red flags.

THREAD 🧵: Why is the world failing on #vaccines, despite ideals of charity, solidarity, or even self-interest - when no-one is safe until everyone is safe? Are new plans for local manufacturing and IP waivers enough?

In a new #OpEd for @SCMPNews, I set out to explain.
👇🏾
1/
To work out what is needed on #vaccines we need to go back 40 years ago to a key issue pointed out by the Nobel Prize winning Amartya Sen: That when people are hungry - in famine - that is not necessarily imply there is a food shortage. It's most often because of distribution. 2/
Right now, most countries in the world are facing a "vaccine famine". Just look at data for #Africa's 55 countries - current vaccines delivered can protect 2% of the population, at best.

🧵 As coronavirus continues to kill thousands per day, it's important to humanize their deaths. This thread is dedicated to the countless young people worldwide lost to COVID. By telling their stories we'll ensure that their memories live on #SoulsLostToCovid💔 Image
Each thread will memorialize 40 people under the age of 50 from different countries. I'll periodically add to the thread. Assume all people were unvaccinated unless stated otherwise. My hope is to contribute to a worldwide database for those killed by COVID.
There are over 193 countries and countless stories to be told - ex Russia, China, India, Uganda, Nigeria etc. If you know of a young person that has died from COVID, then please add them in the comments or tag me. Let's ensure their memories live on. Thank you 🙏🏽

#Bitcoin will eventually be held by nations across the globe.

I took a deep dive look into the reason why countries will start holding #Bitcoin in the future here:
🔽
First, let's look at FX reserves:

Foreign Exchange Reserves (or FX reserves) are cash and other assets, such as #gold, held by Central Banks.

One of the main reasons countries hold FX reserves is to instill confidence in their nation's financial markets and economy as a whole.
The largest and most important reserve currency held is the $USD.

Besides the euro, there has been no real competitor to the dollar dominance as a reserve currency.

#OperationTrojanShield

Wow! Big news!!

With this operation, #Encrochat #Sky #MPC & other encrypted networks being infiltrated, does this mean the end of #Drugs #Corruption #OrganisedCrime ?🤔

Hmmm!

It's a brilliant operation BUT may have unintended consequences

A #Thread
I got sucked into doing some amateur study of the economy of drug trafficking because of brilliant TV shows.

When you study the numbers, understand the geo-politics, social, criminal & financial elements behind the global industry... you realise just how powerful it really is!🎬
If you trace the industry from;
- Areas of production
- Transit routes
- End Markets

Then look at the money flows;
-Peso exchange
-Hawala networks
-Offshore
-Trade based money laundering
etc

Then the operational groups🧐

It's mind blowing in scale & influence @InSightCrime 🤯
