Just out: Scientific report with overview of highly pathogenic avian #influenza from December 2022 to March 2023, by @efsa, @ECDC_EU, and EURL AI. A thread on the situation in poultry, wild birds, wild mammals, and humans in Europe and worldwide. (1/11)…
In #Europe, highly pathogenic avian #influenza virus #H5N1, clade, was reported in 403 #poultry farms and 119 other captive bird holdings birds in 24 countries between 3 December 2022 and 1 March 2023. (2/11)
In Europe, an unexpected number of highly pathogenic avian #influenza virus #H5N1 detections in #seabirds were observed between 3 December 2022 and 1 March 2023, mainly in gull species and particularly in black-headed #gulls (Chroicocephalus ridibundus). (3/11)

I would like to clarify recent statements in the press regarding the ##H5N1 virus detected recently in #Cambodia that were taken out of context. The confusion surrounds the implication that the virus has already gone “through” humans, and may be misinterpreted. (A thread - 1/)
For clarification, #H5N1 virus sequenced from the case in Cambodia shows certain changes that are anticipated and have been found in previous avian and/or human strains when they go from a bird to a human. (2/)
This does *NOT* indicate that the virus is mutating or adapting to become human-to-human transmissible, nor does it state that the virus has already transmitted between humans. (3/)

Cambodian CDC releases a statement about the recent human #H5N1 infection in #Cambodia

Virus belongs to Clade viruses (=endemic in Cambodia) and NOT that is causing infections around the globe in poultry, wild birds, and mammalian species.

A 🧵 about ethical ways to build an image bank in #comdev, #globaldev:

At @Streetnet1, we never had a professional image bank until last year. That's when we made the decision to hire professional photographers in each region we work to take pictures-especially portraits. (1/6)
We wanted portraits of street vendors doing their work in a dignified way. But we did not want these vendors to be anonymous faces. We put the photographers in contact with our affiliates on the ground to capture their members, their names, their stories (with permission). (2/6)
That is why I can tell you, for example, that this vendor's name is Oeun Malis, and she is a member of our affiliate IDEA in #Cambodia. She's been vending for 5 years & was 28 years old at the time.

We can't get the same level of detail for all photos. But we sure tried. (3/6)

A common refrain from anti-anonymity #Facebook apologists is that its #RealNamesPolicy promoted "civility" by making users "accountable" for their words. In this conception, snuffing out anonymous speech is key to protecting "the vulnerable" from trolls and other bad actors. 1/ Cambodian dictator Hun Sen's Facebook photo of himself swimm

#Ramayana-Hindu Culture spread throughout Asia via the Rama Story.
It travelled by sea and land to China, Tibet, Turkestan, Java, Sumatra, Malaya, Burma, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Philippines, Cambodia, Japan
#Thread Repost

Most countries have adapted Rama Story acc. to their own culture with a local setting; the Indian names are used for important towns, sites, mountains, rivers, and lakes.
The adoption of Valmiki Story in Asian countries was selective and influenced by local values

The Buddhist work Mahavibhasa (150ce) is oldest record of Ramayana. Hsuan Tsang stated "There is a book called the Rāmāyaṇa...[it] explains only two topics:
1. Rāvana carrying Sītā off by violence
2. Rāma recovering Sītā and returning."

Welcome to my neighborhood. In just the past few months, I have counted at least 3 people losing their lives on Hanoi Boulevard. The most recent one was just a couple of weeks ago. All deaths occurred at intersections. Image
At six lanes wide, Hanoi Boulevard is designed for maximum vehicle speed and volume. Yet is placed in a complex urban context, with stores, schools, houses, markets, and factories flanking its route. This is why roads such as this are so deadly. Image
Speed kills. A road designed for speed kills, whether road users wore a helmet or not. A street designed with safety in mind actively addresses vehicle speed and has multiple layers of features to prevent and mitigate crashes.

The procedure for Belarus' accession to the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (#SCO) will be launched at the organization's summit in #Samarkand. This was stated at a briefing by the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova.
The signing of a memorandum on Iran's obligations in order to obtain the status of a SCO member state is expected as well. This will allow #Tehran to join the founding documents and international treaties of the organization.
In addition, memoranda have been prepared to formalize the status of dialogue partners for #Egypt, #Qatar and #SaudiArabia, and the process of granting dialogue partnership to #Bahrain, #Maldives and a number of other states will also begin.

Clausewitz said, in his famous work “On War” (as often cited as it is little read), that war is the continuation of diplomacy by other means, well it says a lot more things, but i will keep just a few as i do not wanna write too long.
In his chapter 1, Clausewitz refers that "war constitutes... an act of force that is carried out to force the adversary to comply with our will." War, therefore, is a duel of wills, which, in itself, is not enough, since wanting is one thing and power is another.
Does not intervene who wants but who can, as it is said in #InternationalLaw

To impose our will, we need resources, in an amount that exceeds what our adversary can muster, first of all energy.

Now out with @PrincetonUPress!

“From Development to Democracy: The Transformations of Modern Asia,” written with @JosephWongUT.

What do we argue? And how do we try to offer new thinking on #development and #democracy in East and Southeast #Asia?

A 📘🧵! 1/21
@PrincetonUPress @JosephWongUT It might help to start by noting that the book’s working title was always “Democracy through Strength,” until the very last minute.

That’s our main argument, and it’s still the title of our theory chapter. 2/21
@PrincetonUPress @JosephWongUT Most simply put, democracy hasn’t arisen in the region we call “developmental Asia” because weak dictatorships COLLAPSED, but because strong dictatorships CONCEDED. 3/21

1/ #MarkTwain once said "History doesn't repeat itself, but it often rhymes". Today, I will talk about a conflict that strongly rhymes to the Russian invasion of #Ukraine. The Sino-Vietnamese War. The amount of similarities between both conflicts deserve our attention.
2/ Understanding the #Sino-#Vietnamese #War will help us understand the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Furthermore, this may be a key to help us understand the position of the Vietnamese population. Note how the Vietnamese government has been particularly cold on their neutrality.
3/ The Sino-Vietnamese War is part of a complicated mess involving #Vietnam, #China, and #Cambodia. It started in February 1979 and ended 27 days later with a full withdrawal of Chinese forces. It is possible to argue that Vietnam won, even if China argues otherwise.

#Cambodia foreign minister Prak Sokhonn briefed diplomatic corps and journalists at the foreign ministry today on his second official trip to #Myanmar as #Asean special envoy. Here are some takeaways: ... 👇 ImageImageImage
1) Prak Sokhonn said despite requesting "again and again" to meet Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and her lawyer(s) as well as ex-first lady Daw Su Su Lwin, he couldn't get access to them with reasons cited by #Tatmadaw:

- Cases in court proceeding (ASSK/Lawyer).
- Health condition (SSL).
2) After meeting #Tatmadaw boss Snr Gen Min Aung Hlaing and chief negotiator Lt Gen Yar Pyae, Prak Sokhonn said @NUGMyanmar's People's Defence Force appears to also have a "share of responsibility" on violence, vandalism, and murders of civil servants.
