Real reasons for #conflict are buried in history & intermittently ooze out like hot lava from fissures. #Europe's been an active conflict zone for long born out of a stiff #RomanHangover ever since the #Empire collapsed.#Theopolitics is 1 ingredient in its conflict cocktail

Conflict in #Europe has to be understood in that context before jumping in & taking sides. Colonial times afforded no option & the world got involved twice converting #EuropeanConflict's into #WorldWar's. Many unconcerned died. India lost many braves from #Gallipoli to #Siam

#Ukraine is the latest in a tiring list & has many players beyond just army & politicians. Eastern Orthodox Church, Greek Catholic Church, Patriarchies of Moscow, Constantinople & Kyiv & that west & east of #Dnieper think differently.. all making up the hidden factors

TY @innodim for inviting me to speak! My cognitive PEM wouldn’t let me be great but I appreciate her encouragement & summary! Want to be sure my main points are clear in re to Black Maternal #Mental Health, Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders #PMADs, & disparities.#AIMART #BMHW22
I am no expert, so I'll share what I know. Black mothers are more at risk of #PMADs & are less likely to receive treatment b/c the structural social & economic inequities as a result of #antiBlack #racism & #misogynoir in this white supremacist patriarchal society.#BMHW22
“Close to 40% of Black mothers will suffer from postpartum depression [(PPD)]” OR ‘Systemic racism & sexism harm Black mothers which manifest as PPD for a reported ~40%.’ Addressing these risk factors associated w PMAD is key:
Lack of access to high-quality medical care

Biden's negative coverage is product of "media’s addiction to conflict and unending desire for cohesive narrative" @Sulliview 🎯

speaking of addiction: @EricBoehlert's catch-phrase was "Dems in disarray is a helluva drug" 🎯🎯🎯

Read full press release⤵️

Global economic #growth will be more than 1⃣ percentage point lower this year as a result of this #conflict.

#Inflation could be at least a further 2⃣.5⃣ percentage points higher on aggregate than it would otherwise have been.

👉🔎 oe.cd/4nK Image
#OECD calls for greater #EU solidarity in providing help to 🇺🇦 refugees:

Already some 3⃣ million people have fled #Ukraine with more waves of refugees expected in the weeks ahead.

This is far higher than in wake of the recent Syrian refugee crisis. 👇

What is the endgame, the strategy of #victory, or to put it differently, the vision for #conflict #resolution in #Ukraine? What are feasible scenarios of future relations between #Russia and the #West? Some thoughts. Highly speculative and simplified.🧵1/9
2/9 Scenario 1: Putin wins militarily in Ukraine and achieves his political goals: regime change and demilitarization. Oppression in Russia increases. Western sanctions intensify, aiming at regime change in Russia. European division becomes permanent. foreignaffairs.com/articles/ukrai…
3/9 At the moment this scenario seems very much possible, unfortunately. The question is at what costs. Total destruction? Ukrainian statehood as we knew it will be lost but partisan warfare and sanctions over time may lead to an intra-elite coup in Russia as well (Scenario 3)

Just a friendly reminder @moderna_tx told the @SECGov that the @US_FDA defines #mRNA as gene therapy. And called it an unprecedented new category of #medicines tho they really want that #vaccine classification anyways for liability protections & fear the public wouldn’t take it.
They know the #COVID19 #vaccine isn’t a vaccine but human #gene #therapy.
The @US_FDA #fda reaffirmed their definition of modified viral #nucleic acid that alters #CELL Jan 30th 2020 #COVID ImageImageImageImage

#Narcissism thread 🧵 15 (more) questions to ask yourself if you are questioning whether someone is a #narcissist
1. Do they devalue, diminish, demonise or harshly judge you or act as the righteous ‘authority’ figure with you regardless of their age, status or employment? 🚩
Are they #superior? For e.g. A non lawyer preaching to a lawyer about law. 2. Are they #defensive? Do they seem only interested in trying to prove that they are right & you are wrong, in a defensive mode? 🚩They are #competitive not co-operative. Co-operation is a must #healthy
3. Do they demand #attention from you? For e.g., insisting on having the conversation when it’s convenient for them only &/or use emotional #manipulation to ensure conversation happens on ‘their’ terms? They may not answer the question, go off topic, deflect, defensive, accuse 🚩

The number of children infected with #Covid-19 is less among all other age group in the global population. How about the #psychological, #social impact in on #children? Researches suggests social and psychological impact in this group were mostly severe.
To find some answer and have idea let's take a closer look at the researches and figures provided by the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), which shows the magnitude of the pandemic’s #impact on #children. Image
As families lose their sources of #income and home environments are turned upside down due to the socioeconomic impacts of Covid-19, #children find themselves more vulnerable to #poverty and likely to be deprived of their basic needs. Image

1. Is financial market pricing in some heightened Taiwan Strait war risk this week? Yes, a little. No perfect measure. With China on holiday last wk, can attribute some pop of 5-yr CDS price as caused by heighted attention, which happens around Oct with back to back national days
2. To put in context, China 5 Yr CDS value is 48.87, reveals a 0.81% implied probability of default, on a 40% recovery rate supposed. US 5 Yr CDS is 17.4, reveals a 0.29% implied probability of default. Recent increase in US mostly by the debt ceiling fight. #MintTheCoin hahaha
3. @PredictIt betting market doesn't have a Taiwan specific market, but has 3 China related contracts. Betting on who would be confirmed for next US Ambassador to China, and Pres. Xi's chance of staying as party General Secretary for next 10 years.

@RetractionWatch 1. As the Exit strategy via #vaccine became clearer, the journal IJEST #springer @SpringerNature decided to retract my paper on #COVID19, published 19th Nov, received 5 citations (first preprint 17th March, 2020). @Indrroy @C0PE @levent_k_elpen

Paper: tinyurl.com/yzf3h8de
@RetractionWatch @SpringerNature @C0PE @levent_k_elpen 2. The Supplementary section of the paper:
1.Solution slide (attached).
2.Presentation: tinyurl.com/yvsth7sy

Results are consistent if more countries are included. Studies using different statistical techniques also confirmed that. Thus main findings of the study are robust.
@RetractionWatch @SpringerNature @C0PE @levent_k_elpen 3.Retraction letter @SpringerNature mentioned

#solution may not be safe. In order to protect public health, the content has been removed’

Though in the paper, I mentioned the term ‘keeping Comfort level’ (check attached solution slide) and included a caution part in the text

Being going through a tough time of late & work, like everything, has been so hard. There are a few tricks & tools I've held onto for dear life which have helped get me through & now I'm (hopefully) coming out the other side I thought I'd share them #WritersSurvivalTips...
#WritersSurvivalTips 1. Here's an easy one. At the end of the working day (working hour? 20mins) I've learnt to leave myself a clear task to start the next session. Might be a warm-up exercise, dialogue exchange, a stack of index cards to do some beats or a timeline.... Image
....also means my subconscious brain is still working and prepping stuff for the next writing session even if my thinking brain is switched off. XX

Been a while since I finished a book in one sitting but #ThinkAgain by @AdamMGrant was that good. A thread with some of my key takeaways:
#Confidence is a measure of how much you believe in yourself versus your methods. You can be confident in your ability to achieve a goal in the future while maintaining the humility to question whether you have the right tools in the present. That's the sweet spot of confidence.
We should strive to attain confident humility: having faith in our capability while appreciating that we may not have the right solution or even be addressing the right problem - giving us enough doubt to re-examine our old knowledge and enough confidence to pursue new insights.

Here a #Thread about the #History of #China and #Japan:
The inhabitants of the areas that are now China have always identified with their family, their hometown, their province, but not with "China".

#Asia #AsianLivesMatter #AsiansAreHuman
#conflict
nzz.ch/pro-global/asi…
Until the end of the 19th century, it would not have occurred to the Chinese to speak of their “nation”, and even the name “China” was alien to them.
It was the “imperialist powers”, especially the Japanese, who first gave the Chinese the idea that they were a nation.

Renewed #diplomacy or #Buzkashi?
#US @CENTCOM's Gen McKenzie met #Pakistani Army Chief Gen Bajwa in Islamabad on 19Feb appreciating "Pakistan's contributions to Afghan peace.”
Few hours earlier,#Russian envoy, Kabulov met Bajwa to talk about #Afghanistan.1
#Moscow plans to host an int. meeting on #Afghanistan soon.
#India hopes #US will delay its military withdrawal.
Efforts made as part of "political engineering" are gaining momentum.
Many regional players incl India & #Pakistan are engaging influential/powerful Afghan figures. 2
Is the region preparing for #peace or another round of greater #chaos in #Afghanistan?
If the #AfghanPeaceProcess collapses, there are signs that the #conflict in the country will not only become more dangerous & deadlier but also a lot uglier & messier. 3
