1. My Predictions For 2019:
- #Macron will find it more & more difficult to hold onto power.
- #Merkel won't last until 2021 & her power will further decrease this year quarter by quarter.
- I expect that the #Brexit-Exit-date will be moved (most likely by 12 months).
2. My Predictions For 2019:
- The issues of mass-#migration (few real #refugees) will continue to haunt #Europe, especially #Germany & continue to put pressure on the GER #Groko-government (#CDU/#CSU & #SPD).
#Predictions2019 #Year2019
3. My Predictions For 2019:
- The trend of right parties gaining more power (2018: #Italy, #Austria, #Brazil) will continue: In #France #LePen (#FN) will benefit from #Macron losing power, in #Germany the #AfD will gain further support in Eastern Germany (tbc).

I’m remembering how much I love about Brazil 🇧🇷 today. I’ve traveled almost all over the country over the past decade here, and I thought maybe I should share my very favorite places.😻 Thread, share with your friends who want to visit #Brazil!👇
(1) I’m a beach bunny, & Brazil provides endless beaches for me to explore. Several of my favorites are in a rarely-visited area along the south coast of Paraíba state in the Northeast. Pink cliffs juxtapose turquoise waters like a painting, & the forests are awesome for hikes.
(2) Brazil has a ton of really special colonial towns. Paraty is wonderful, but I often get annoyed by crowds & rain. The town I prefer is #OuroPreto in Minas Gerais. The air there is so brisk & fresh, the people are so kind, and all I want to do when I’m there is stroll forever.

I was born and raised in the beautiful city of #Curitiba, southern #Brazil!
This region is famous for being cold and cloudy (yes it can be cold in Brazil!).
It is also famous for its very endemic and beautiful #Araucaria pine trees. #voicesIWS @IWS_Network @500womensci /1
#Actions speak louder than words! I am thankful for my parents for being who they are. Both always showed love for Nature, different interests and #curiosity! So no wonder by observing them I grew up to be a very curious girl who really loved Nature. #voicesIWS @IWS_Network /2
During High School I became fascinated by the #mendelian #genetics classes and the work of #gregormendel! I also loved studying animals, ecosystems and climate so the obvious choice for me in University (@PUCPR_oficial ) was BIOLOGY!! @IWS_Network #womeninscience #voicesIWS /3

<<Thread>> How the KOCH BROTHERS helped give #Brazil its own DONALD TRUMP. Meet JAIR BOLSONARO, Brazil's Koch-endorsed far-right president. 1/9 cbc.ca/news/politics/…
Like Trump, his core beliefs are very conservative, especially when it comes to gay rights. "If a gay couple came to live in my building, my property will lose value. If they walk around holding hands, kissing, it will lose value!". 2/9
He's racist and misogynistic. 3/9 fastcompany.com/90258155/jair-…

Why does #Brazil's election of Jair #Bolsonaro matter so much?

Well, first up, people are going to die.

Brazil already has the highest rate of indigenous murders in the world, and Bolsonaro has repeatedly attacked them in hate speech sg.news.yahoo.com/fears-amazon-b…
. @Global_Witness said 57 land defenders were murdered in Brazil in 2017 and warned even before Bolsonaro that laws were getting less strict on protection tribune.com.pk/story/1765418/…
There are some pointing to Brazil's relatively robust institutions, suggesting Bolsonaro won't be able to legislate to push through some of his most damaging pledges. But he doesn't need to change the law to ruin the environment.

Some label him a “disruptor”. Bolsonaro’s victory marks far worse than disruption, for climate change across the world, for human rights in Brazil & the region, for minorities, for women. He came to power menacing far worse than disruption. Why would we not believe him? #brazil
Brazil’s election of Bolsonaro marks a new phase in a global crisis which can’t be resolved as individual nations. The more the language of the populist fizzes with making that nation great again, the bigger the international crisis emerging. /2
As a nation of over 200 million people, and the largest country in Latin America, a political earthquake ripples far beyond its borders. Take its climate change policies, take its approach to human rights, to democracy itself. This in a region marked by recent brutal history. /3

Across the board elite failure merging with a rapid techno-social transition—managed irresponsibly if at all—of the fabric of our public sphere isn't turning out great. Wait till AI gets more broad. We're living through a new chapter for that great book, March of Folly. #Brazil
😬Here's the good cheer. It's totally manageable. The world isn't burning up in a global war. We have immense wealth. Great technology. Just that our overlords are incompetent and/or greedy—and coherent, strategically smart alternatives haven't yet formed.
Things are bleak, but historically speaking... We're nowhere near a hopeless situation. Nowhere. Just need to get our act together and develop coherent, smart, strategic political action addressing the challenges. World is immensely wealthy—just unequal.

Tomorrow last day to trade #Brazil before the presidential elections. aljazeera.com/news/2018/10/b…
That's not the best article. Focuses on politics rather than markets. Bolsonaro is good for markets. Question becomes, is he already fully priced in or not.
Brazil stocks up 2.8% today in dollar terms despite global markets turmoil.

1) Brazil is on the verge of electing far-right populist Jair Bolsonaroan an extremist “barbarian” who represents “the dross of the dictatorship”.

He will be opposed by the left wing candidate @Haddad_Fernando , member of the PT - our sister party in Brazil.
2) Who is Bolsonaroan?

He has a torturer as his idol Carlos Alberto Brilhante Ustra who was one of the most sadistic torturer & murderer in the military dictatorship that choked Brazil between 1964 & 1985.

He has also voiced admiration for Chile's dictator Augusto Pinochet.
3) He believes that women are not important and didn't hesitate to claim that “if he had four sons, he then had a moment of weakness, and the fifth was a girl.”

He hates gays claiming that he'd rather have his son die in a car accident than have him show up dating some guy.

As part of a research project that I'm involved in with colleagues at @PIIE, I have been reading party platforms for G20 countries prior to and after the Global Financial Crisis. I have just re-read party platforms for #Brazil in 2006.
2/

The PSDB document then was 170 pages long, with a lot of detailed information about government proposals in all areas -- the economic program was very clearly detailed. The PT document was 34 pages in length, not as clearly detailed, but nonetheless very informative.
3/

Contrasting those plans with PSL's 2018 platform (Bolsonaro's program) is striking: While the PSL platform is 81 pages in length, it is structured as a power point presentation, with simple sentences full of cliches on major policy topics, particularly on the economy.

Neo-Fascism rises in Brazil!
"The police chief told Radio Guaíba that the symbol on the girl's belly is Buddhist religion and not the Nazi swastika."
Today, several reports of fascist attacks by groups of men claiming to support the far-right presidential candidate #JairBolsonaro. Even two sisters holding hands in the street were cursed as lesbians and threatened with death.

Conservative numbers are VERY STRONG in today's vote.

Liberal media is having a meltdown.

If Bolsonaro wins in the first round for president, the left will have been demolished.
#Electionday in #Brazil #GreatAwakening
(2) Impeached former predisent Dilma, that miraculously got her political rights re-installed and searched a Senate seat in Minas Gerains, seems to have flopped and ended up in 4th place.
#Electionday in #Brazil #GreatAwakening

(3) In virtually all major state runs Exit Polls show a clear tilt to the right regarding what the previous fake polls showed. This leads me to expect Bolsonaro to attain 50%+ of votes and win the presidential race in the first round.

#Electionday in #Brazil #GreatAwakening

Today I voted on the most unapologetic conservative chandidates that I have in my entire life.

My candidate for president of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, on the verge of being elected in this first round of voting is NUMBER 17. 👾
halfway through, he is on the brink of victory.
I have reason to believe that he will be just shy of victory in the first round, with some 48-49%. It will be a short but bloody battle until late October against the PT socialists and all the politically correct peeps.

STILL: a night of conservative FORCE around the country.

This weekend Brazilians will go to the polls to elect a new president. #Brazil is fifth biggest country in the world, in terms of population, and symptomatic of a remarkable authoritarian turn in the world's biggest states. #thread
1. China is the biggest country and only non-democracy in top-5. But even here General Secretary Xi Jinping has taken the country in a (even) more authoritarian and nationalist direction.
2. India, the world's largest democracy, has been governed by PM Narendra Modi and his radical right BJP-led coalition since 2014. MOstly ignored by international media, India has seen sharp rise of radical and sometimes violent Hindutva activism.

THREAD: As protests continue and the rial tumbles, #Iran is increasingly seen as an economic basket case that has squandered its chance to join the ranks of the #BRICs. Here are 7 charts that challenge that view.
bourseandbazaar.com/articles/2018/…
Back in January, I told @folha reporter @DiogoBercito that I saw parallels between the Brazilian protests that have been running since 2014 and those in Iran. In both contexts you hear calls to overthrow the government.
www1.folha.uol.com.br/mundo/2018/01/…
This is the same reaction to the same macroeconomic failures. The frustrated cry of the Iranian protestor is the same cry as that of the Brazilian protestor. Sure, there is some local political and economic dialect. But the language of corruption and inequality is the same.

After the horrific 1968-74 period, Ernesto Geisel ('74-9), was regarded as one of the more benevolent rulers during the military dictatorship (1964-85) in #Brazil. Documents show he was aware of summary executions of subversives, as was CIA and Kissinger. theguardian.com/world/2018/may…
The CIA had detected the plans for the 1964 coup in #Brazil, and had contact with some conspirators. But the CIA did *not* instigate the coup, and did not provide money or direction for the plot. >>
>> What the U.S. did do in #Brazil in 1964—unknown to the coup plotters—was prepare, vaguely, to intervene if the coup triggered a civil war to ensure the Communists did not prevail. As it was, the coup encountered little resistance. nyti.ms/2PaQ7xB
