In light of #COVID19, the ideas that most Americans have about Chinese #food preferences, and eating habits are far from reality. I find them dangerous as they fuel #sinophobia, and distract from addressing real problems. 1/n
I came across the following piece in @ConversationEDU which echoes my earlier thoughts on wet markets in #China 🇨🇳 and #COVID19. It is written by two anthropologists and provides an excellent perspective. Here are some additional thoughts... 2/n…
Contrary to popular belief, most consumers in China don’t eat wildlife and over half of them shun the idea. Consumption of exotic animals tends to be driven by the status rarity provides. It is not the norm. 3/n…

China’s food markets, wildlife trade and origins of #COVID19: A thread

As a PhD student, I spent countless hours in #China’s wet markets gathering data on consumer behavior and #food safety. Here are a few thoughts: 1/n
Wet markets typically sell fresh meat, fish, produce and other perishables. Historically, animals were killed on-site to ensure freshness and water was used to clean the area. Hence the term “wet market”. They are very different from #wildlife markets 2/n
Reports linking #COVID19 and similar outbreaks to wet markets in China have led to calls for the closing of all wet markets in the country. While some wildlife trade does happen in wet markets, this is far from the norm. Confounding the two can be problematic 3/n

Several reasons why this doesn't work, from someone who worked in the fruit farming industry until I was 21. Thread 1/8

#coronavirus #food #farminguk
1) These jobs are concentrated in specific locations, frequently in areas where farming is the main industry. So a lot of the newly unemployed will be too far away for this to be viable (or desirable if we're limiting travel) 2/8
2) It's incredibly physical work. To the point where someone who's spent every day behind a desk and doesn't exercise simply won't last. And a lot of unfit people suddenly doing this could place extra strain on healthcare. 3/8

Speaking of #marijuana.

Given the possibility of criminal prosecution or other disciplinary outcomes, I'll put this story as a fable.
There was a young woman, a young mother, with a husband serving in the #armedforces. The young woman had occasional #symptoms including positional agony, dizziness, etc.
Her #country, the #UnitedStates, cared so little about those that served in the military that it provided 3rd class #medicalcare through many of its bases and camps.

Import dependency & food Security
1-Lebanon imports ~ 5 times the value of its exports. On the total import bill, fuel comes 1st accounting for ~ 21.1% & food comes 2nd accounting for ~ 17.7% (Worldbank, 2018). The country imports 65% to 80% of its food needs. (ESCWA & WFP, 2016)
2-Major Imported #food categories include sugar, vegetable oils, animal products, beverages, fruits & vegetables ... , many of which can be either produced locally or already have local substitutes.
3-Agriculture’s value-added as % of GDP has been regularly falling since 2014. In 2016- 2018, it dropped to 2.9% only. The high dependency on imports coupled with the declining agriculture sector poses a serious threat on 2 dimensions of food insecurity: Availability & stability

5 cups of rice⁣
1 1/5 cup of meat stock⁣
1 large onion⁣
1tbsp each curry, thyme , garlic and ginger powder ⁣
2 bay leaves⁣
2/3 cup oil
2 satchets of tomato paste⁣
4 medium sized tomatoes⁣
3 large red bell peppers ⁣
Ata rodo.

No amount of seasoning cubes will give your rice the same rich taste meat stock would. It's non negotiable⁣
Before adding the rice, taste the "jollof water" it should already be very very tasty. If not, add more seasoning #Food
I know you don't like burning food but babe, this is party jollof rice😒 10 minutes before your rice should be done, turn the heat to high, cover the pot tightly and burn your rice. ⁣

There’s a lot of talk around comparative 🇬🇧/🇺🇸 standards when it comes to #food and future #trade deals; but what do these differences mean in practice? ⤵️

[Thread, 1/10]

🇬🇧 - Minimum legal requirement of enriched cages (750 sq cm) + perch, nest box & litter.

🇺🇸 - No federal laws on hen welfare; voluntary guidelines suggest cages of 432 sq cm.

US 🍳 costs = 28% lower. That’s no yolk.


🇬🇧 - Only potable water permitted to wash carcasses. Legal maximum stocking densities/AMR protocols apply.

🇺🇸 - No legal maximum stocking densities in major 🍗 producing states - Pathogen Reduction Treatments (eg chlorine dioxide) required to wash carcasses 🦠

Today we’re at the “Fringe Farming In London” event being run by @UKSustain & @MayorofLondon

Together we’re asking: can we support agro ecological food production in the capital and beyond?

#food #agroecology #farming #periurban
One key question is what is the role of #greenbelt - 22% of London’s land is greenbelt but it is largely seen as a place of recreation rather than as a place of production

So yesterday I was at the Darbar Sahib in Kartarpur, #Pakistan via the Kartarpur Corridor. This photo thread is about my journey to Kartarpur.

I've got a lot of queries already & I'm working on detailed blog posts.

#KartarpurCorridor #Pakistan #MaharajTravels #TraveBlogger
The nearest town to reach Kartarpur Corridor from #India is Dera Baba Nanak which is 2km from the border. Reached here by bus after a 1:30 hrs journey.

#KartarpurCorridor #Pakistan #MaharajTravels #TravelBlogger
Since it was just 2km, I walked from Dera Baba Nanak to the Border terminal. On the way a couple of BSF check posts. Got the first glimpse of Pakistan flag and this is the terminal building.

What did #famers get in #Budget, where @nsitharaman claimed, "Our Govt is committed to the goal of doubling farmers income by 2022"

P.S-Acc to Dalwai committee,"real income of farmer, should increase by 10.4%/year,which has been increasing less than 2.5% in last 5 years
@nsitharaman @_YogendraYadav @aviksahaindia @sayantanbera @seemay @Ghair_Kanooni @Subytweets @sritara @srinivasanravi @DrSarvapriya @RURALINDIA Govt allocates 9.3% of the budget to #Agri, allied,irrigation & #rural development, which was 9.8% last year. Factoring Inflation, Real Increase in allocation is actually negative.

Is this enough ?
Will this increase #farm income, prop up #rural demand ?

@mkvenu1 @PreetiSMenon
@nsitharaman @_YogendraYadav @aviksahaindia @sayantanbera @seemay @Ghair_Kanooni @Subytweets @sritara @srinivasanravi @DrSarvapriya @RURALINDIA @mkvenu1 @PreetiSMenon Govt allocated 1.58 lakh crore to #agri, allied sectors & irrigation i.e. 5.2% of the total budget. Last years budget had allocated 1.52 lakh crore, which was 5.45% of the budget i.e. reduced spending !

👉Will this double #farm income by 2022 ?🙄

🚜🌎💚 Land use, #farming & how this impacts on #ClimateChange is under scrutiny

Today, the Committee on Climate Change (@thecccuk) have launched their new Land Use report

What does it say, does it focus on the right things and is it ambitious enough?
@theCCCuk @UKSustain @SoilsAlliance @SusFoodTrust @LandworkersUK @FOLUCoalition @GreenerUK_ @GreenAllianceUK @WCL_News @DefraGovUK @NFUtweets The report comes at a time when #farming, #landuse and its impact on #climatechange is under the spotlight like never before.

This @theCCCuk report will be a major influence on what farmers will be rewarded for doing to adapt to climate change.
Nature must be given equal emphasis in shaping the future of post-#Brexit #farm support, as #farming and #landuse is also the primary driver of global #insect decline and the #biodiversity crash.

The #ClimateCrisis, buried in aggregate economic indicators:

A spike in inflation in #India "caused by food prices...a sharp rise in the price of vegetables... pulses... attributed to supply shocks caused largely by extreme weather events"

Food prices nearly double in Kenya

"economist Ken Gichinga attributes the rise to erratic weather conditions that hit various parts of the country late 2019"

Where is the media?

The doom is here. We don't need prophets.

#ClimateCrisis #foodsecurity
☝️...Anyone see a pattern?

In Sri Lanka:

"It is well-known that vegetable prices wrere going up rapidly in the last few months...The main reason for this is the climate anomalies...some crops were completely destroyed"

I finally finished writing the preface to my #family #cookbook! Maybe someone will be interested in reading this abridged version? I'm hoping to inspire someone to think seriously about their own #cooking#Food is such a big part of our lives. It should make you happy.
« Hey there! I’m writing this to you on January 16, 2020, just over two weeks into the New Year. We decided to create a family cookbook on the 4th, after concluding that a single bullet journal wouldn’t serve such myriad needs well… So that’s the story behind the book itself.
« I love all these people so involved in my life. I dedicate this book to the life we lived together, and the love we shared. Some memories of those have been recorded on these pages, and, I’ve sketched everyone their own profiles, as well.

The list of truly fundamental needs for human life is a short one.

Food is on that list.

▶️This is how climate change impacted crops in 2019◀️

This is terrifying.

The midwest was plagued with heavy rain, leading to flooding & causing major challenges with corn, soybeans & other crops

@UNRWA #Gaza #Genf

More than half a million people in #Gaza depend on #food #aid. Every quarter there is a discounted ration per person. The #goods are ordered for the first quarter of the new year, but not yet #paid.
Whether the @UN organization can pay the salaries of its 13,000 workers in the #Gaza Strip in December is unclear. In Gaza, under the eyes of #Hamas, @UNRWA operates 276 schools, 22 health centers and distributes food. The unemployment rate is also 41% (Total PA Area 30% 2018).
@UNRWA currently cares for 5.5 million #Palestinians. But they are missing 167 million € to pay everything. It would take at least € 30 million for the current quarter and € 60 million for the second quarter of next year.

1. Frühstücken und vom Tisch aufraffen (~2,5h)
2. Sportsachen anziehen und Tasche packen (~30min)
3. Kurz einkaufen (~1h)
4. Ups, was vergessen, noch schnell zum andern Landen (~30min)
[Warum dauert das alles so lange? In Gedanken abdriften, vergessen was man eigentlich tun wollte, eingefroren darauf warten dass der Körper wieder mitspielt, weggetreten die Wand anstarren und erst 10 Minuten später mit einem Ruck wieder zusich kommen...]
