premium.politis.com.cy/kalokairi-doki… στον @politis_news σήμερα εξηγώ πως καλή και ωφέλιμη η κάθοδος του (Ισπανού) Μπορέλ στη #Cyprus αλλά η (ισπανική) BBVA -όπως και ολόκληρο το ισπανικό τραπεζικό σύστημα- είναι εκτεθειμένη στη Turkiye Garanti Bankasi για μερικές δεκάδες δις #EastMed #Turkey
στη κρίσιμη περίοδο για την #EastMed η πολιτική της #Cyprus για πολιτικό & οικονομικό κόστος στη #Turkey λόγω παράνομων ενεργειών στην ΑΟΖ μπορεί να μην βρει ευήκοα ώτα στην ΕΕ αυτής της σύνθεσης
το ίδιο ισχύει και για το ζήτημα της ενταξιακής πορείας της #Turkey σχέση που έτσι κι αλλιώς τα τελευταία χρόνια έχει καταστεί "on/off"

Thread: Wearing masks is our best defense against the #coronavirus.

@WhiteHouse press secretary said today that masks are no longer required in West Wing. Many tweets also advise against masks.

Result: Colossal failure of the US #COVID response.

An example of anti-mask rhetoric can be seen in the video below by a Mr. Huff. I will explain why everything that he says here is scientifically incorrect and a danger to public health. (I do not know Mr. Huff or his motivations.)

I am not comparing the US to the several dozen countries that have mostly controlled this epidemic, e.g., #Taiwan, #Iceland, #SouthKorea, #Japan, #Thailand, #NewZealand, #Australia, #Austria, #Switzerland, #Greece, #Norway, etc. Some of them never even had to lock down.

Dear Cypriots and #Cyprus watchers. PAY ATTENTION because a lot of regional #EastMed things are happening that may end up good or bad for Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots. THREAD 1/26
Short version: by the pricking of my thumbs, I feel that regional actors are warming up for an East Med deal. Will Cyprus get a say? The long version below. 2/
Let’s start with the most recent event. Italy and Greece sign maritime delineation agreement. 3/

A year ago took one of the biggest decisions in my life, to go away from #Finland and come back to motherland #Cyprus. 20 years is a long time, but no regret, the Finns they taught me well. Cannot imagine being isolated there during the Covid19, Helsinki airport was my 3rd home
Left with sadness, missing the cottage, sauna and the lovely Amazon ladies. Most importantly my own 2 daughters, the 2nd home up in the #arctic circle. Don't believe that Greeks can stay wtout sun for 6 months, 3 metres snow, freezing temperatures at -40. I did it, proud of that
After a month in #Cyprus, my cousin asked my impressions. Said that you are living like #Kings, with big houses, not Ikea furniture, multiple cars, sea 10 min away, excellent food and wine, infrastructure that is good enough, a sun that is always available, even snow at #Troodos

The #GeorgeFloydMurder is the latest in a long history of #racist atrocities visited on Black people & minorities in the US & elsewhere.

If u are in some position of authority, power, privilege & have a public platform you need to speak up and be counted. A v personal #thread
I am brown of Indian origin, but when asked, I always say I don't really know what #racism looks like, I have almost never experienced it, and I am in a position of power and privilege so I don't think its appropriate for me to speak about it. But today, I write about it here ...
I grew up in India, when to the @LSEnews & took a investment banking job at #Lehman. When I flew back to #India, I went to the UK embassy in Delhi to get my work visa. That was my first #racist encounter. He barked at me, said he could turn me down coz "too many of us in the UK"

1/Below is representation of earliest syllabic scripts used in continental #Greece & #Cyprus for pre-Greek& Greek languages. Both mainland Greece & Cyprus owe their first alphabets to Minoan #Crete & Linear A. Cypro-Minoan, modelled on it, represents yet undeciphered language(s)
2/Cypro-Minoan was named such by Sir Arthur Evans, who was behind Knossos excavations. He suspected a Minoan colony in Cyprus allowing scribal transmission to occur.
Cypro-Minoan led to Cypriot syllabary, which along with Linear B, are first scribal systems for writing Greek.
3/Cypriot syllabary was used for the Achaean type of Greek spoken by Cypriots until the latter part of 1st Millen BCE when Koine & Greek alphabet took hold.

Linguistically, it was close to the Mycenaean of Linear B. It had 55 syllabic letters, just a few less than Linear B

1/1 Συζητούμε συνεχώς για την τήρηση των μέτρων περιορισμού αλλά δεν είδα έναν τεχνοκράτη ή πολιτικάντη στη #Cyprus να συζητά για την ύπαρξη μέτρων ανά επαρχία κι αναλόγως επιμέρους ποιοτικών στοιχείων (αποκέντρωση, γεωγραφία, ανθρωπομορφολογία) όλα η Λευκωσία, μηδέν τοπικό
2/2 Πέραν της ολιγωρίας τέλη Φεβράρη, το ζητούμενο παραμένει ο παραδειγματισμος. Ας κατανοήσουμε σοβαρό ζήτημα, πρωτίστως, έχει η απονομή Δικαιοσύνης και η αστυνομία (νοοτροπία, εκπαίδευση, αποτελεσματικότητα). Δεν υπάρχει παραδειγματισμός γτ κανείς δεν ηγείται δια παραδείγματος
3/3 Η έλλειψη πρόληψης τέλη Φεβράρη επαναλαμβάνεται και τώρα. Λίγο καιρό πριν το Πάσχα στη κορύφωση του #COVIDー19 & δεδομένης ανυπακοής ενός ελάχιστου ποσοστού και το κράτος δεν έχει καταστήσει σαφές 2 τινά: Φλαούνες τέλος. Αρνιά τέλος. Τι θα γίνει δηλ. υπεραγορές Μ. Τετάρτη;

#COVID19 lockdowns and quarantines seem to be reducing crime rates outside.

But inside - at home - increased rates of domestic abuse are a reminder of another kind of global pandemic: violence against women and children.

Home has never been safe for everyone. #coronavirus
Crime drops in lockdown, domestic violence risk climbs bnnbloomberg.ca/stuck-at-home-… #COVID19 #coronavirus
Reported domestic violence cases jumped 30% during lockdown in #France.

In #Paris alone, they were up 36%.

2/ Τις τελευταίες ημέρες, η εργαστηριακή εξέταση δειγμάτων ανά ημέρα έχει σχεδόν διπλασιαστεί, οδηγώντας και σε ταχύτερο εντοπισμό των θετικών κρουσμάτων. Αυτό σημαίνει ότι, τουλάχιστον σε κάποιο βαθμό, θα εξηγούσε την απότομη αυτή αύξηση του αριθμού των θετικών περιστατικών.
3/ Επιπλέον, η ημέρα λήψης δείγματος μπορεί να ποικίλει από άτομο σε άτομο, καθιστώντας τον αριθμό των ανακοινωθέντων κρουσμάτων όχι άμεσα ανάλογο της ημερήσιας αύξησης.

Ακολουθεί thread. Ο σκοπός του δεν είναι σεξιστικός ή ηθικοπλαστικός. Στη #Cyprus αντιμετωπίζουμε τον #COVIDー19 και υπάρχει μια συζήτηση για τα μέτρα στα αεροδρόμια. Τι συμβαίνει με την παραπορνία όμως;
Πριν από δύο μέρες ο αριθμός sexual workers παγκύπρια ήταν 79. Σήμερα έχει αυξηθεί στον αριθμό 91. Η φώτο ως άνω είναι από sex worker που αφίχθηκε χθες. Στη Λάρνακα..
Δεδομένου ότι καμιά γυναίκα δεν ελέγχεται στη Κύπρο όσον αφορά το επάγγελμα της ιερόδουλης (απουσία νομοθετικού πλαισίου) ποιός βεβαιώνει ότι μια φορέας του #COVIDー19 δεν θα μεταδώσει τον ιό; Είναι ΣΜΝ..

I was 14 when Mubarak became president - he was vice president to the assassinated Anwar Sadat - and 44 when Mubarak was forced to step down after #Jan25 revolution. I was a Reuters correspondent in Cairo from 1993-1998 and covered Mubarak extensively. Some memories to follow
News outlets will give you the official obituaries: These are recollections of an Egyptian woman who left #Egypt in 1975, returned in 1988 and asked her uncles and aunts almost every day “Where is the revolution?” because of what #Mubarak and military rule had done to Egypt.
And when I became a journalist, I reported on the censorship - and was subjected to it - of the #Mubarak regime, its use of systematic torture via the drunk-on-power myriad security apparatuses he created, as well as - esp 2005 onwards - sexual violence vs protesters.

My name is Miki Goldman. I'm a survivor of #Auschwitz which was liberated 75 years ago today. Today I'll be taking over the State of 🇮🇱 account to share my story & help make sure that the 🌍 never forgets the #Holocaust. RT this and reply with your questions. #HowMikiSurvived
I was born in Katowize, Poland in 1925. When WWII began I escaped with my parents and siblings to Przemysl. From there I was deported to the Szebnie camp & in November 1943, I was transferred to Auschwitz until the liquidation of the camp in Jan. 1945. #HowMikiSurvived #HMD2020 Me and my classmates before the Holocaust. Unfortunately, I never saw many of them again.
@AuschwitzMuseum @USCShoahFdn @Fondation_Shoah @HolocaustUK @HolocaustMuseum @HMD_UK @HolocaustCentUK @wienerlibrary On January 17, as the Red Army was approaching, the Nazis evacuated the camp & led us on a death march. Many people died from hunger & hypothermia along the way. I escaped by pretending to be dead in the snow & was hidden by polish peasants. #HowMikiSurvived #HMD2020 #Auschwitz75

1/#Turkey had well established "soft power" lines of influence throughout the Greater #MiddleEast (North #Africa, Horn of Africa, Eastern #Mediterranean, etc.).
2/But now #Turkish leaders are ready to assume greater risk to assert overt military power in an expeditionary manner to expand #Turkey's influence, and therefore leverage, on conflicts beyond the country's near abroad (#Libya being farther than say #Cyprus or #Syria).
3/However #Turkish leaders don't want to risk significant casualties to their own forces in these expeditionary ops, whether far away like in #Libya or closer to home like in #Syria, when #Turkey's military has spent so much time and $$ building a proxy force of #Syrian fighters.

Jenny told the BBC: 'She was a changed person, she was very withdrawn, she was quite terrified of everything, she didn't want to leave the room that she was in she was very jumpy.
'When she left for Cyprus she was a beautiful bubbly happy girl that was very confident and she was totally different when I got there.'

The Muslim Brotherhood government in Libya & Erdogan agreed to split the E. Mediterranean between them, ignoring Crete that would ruin plans to steal Greek gas.

The Greek Foreign Ministry basically said “Take a closer look at the map.There's a Greek island there, called Crete."
Greek FM Dendias said the agreement is ”beyond all reason” and “shows a complete lack of geographic knowledge.”

The Greek FM also said the agreement ”obviously ignores something that everyone can see; that between these two countries (Libya and Turkey) lies Crete.”
1) Erdogan claimed to be using “international law” to support his irrendentist ambitions, but as usual, doesn’t specify any international law. So let’s talk about international law. The legal position of Greece and Cyprus is with the United Nations Law of the Sea December 10 1982

When I first started analyzing #Lebanon ‘s finances, I started with the commercial banks. I quickly realized that one can’t do this without simultaneously studying books of @BDL_Lebanon & State

Indeed, only way to understand issue is to think of all three as one entity

More >
The critical building block of the current version of #Lebanon Inc. has been the extremely successful Non-Resident Diaspora

This group’s success, wealth & love of their country will play a crucial role in funding a system that was born nearly 26 years ago
Debt financed reconstruction needs someone to fund it long term

Importing way more than exporting needs constant foreign currency

Spending more than collecting in taxes needs benefactor

#Lebanon ‘s Non-Resident Diaspora were ready to do all three but at a price of course
