@06aims and @viknoka kicking off the academic publishing in #geography Q&A with @PhilEmmerson, Alan Latham and Rosie Cox. Great to see such a fantastic turnout and looking forward to learning more about publishing... @PGF_RGSIBG @RGS_IBGhe @CCRI_UK #PGFHome
To what extent should you consider impact factors & journal ranking? ...Be aware, but don't get too hung up about hierarchies of journals. It is great advice to have a very detailed conversation with someone with experience publishing in your research area. @PGF_RGSIBG #PGFHome
How best to respond to reviewer's comments? ... These can vary a lot! Think carefully about a) what the reviewer is asking you to do, b) how this fits with your project, and c) how you're going to respond. Show that you've thought about & considered their comments @PhilEmmerson

#Iran

So if it comes to a invasion of #Iran there are several things to see and know. The #Geography is on the side of Iran. The #West is protected by a massiv #Chain of #mountains wich would be easy to #defend even with a weaker #army they could try to keep there a defend line
The north is not able to reach for the #US troops and the #caspiansee is #landlocked by many #nations. A inportant @NATO allie if the defens act works would be #Turkey wich would be forced to send troops against #Iran and a area mainly owned by #Kurds in #Iran.
the east has a little lower mountain chain and a bigger desert in the south west the #Dasht-e #Lut and is coverd by huge #rocks and the area of #Namak-#Zar inside Dasht-e Lut is the #hotest place on #earth actual. And the border area to #Pakistan is also coverd by a dry #desert

There's a seriously big turnout for climatologist David Phillips tonight at @NLGEOCENTRE. Let's hope he does some real talk on #climatechange. He's already given a pitch for #yyt + #windpower
Plenty of chuckles from the crowd about our crummy weather (wettest... windiest... etc) stats #nlwx
David talks about the transition
1) global warming
2) climate change
What's next? 3) atmospheric terrorism

Thread: Another overview amazing #Muslim *female* achievement.

Did you know the first university in the world was built by a Muslim woman approx 1200 years ago?

This is the story of Fatima Al-Fihiri (800–880 CE). #BadassWoman #twitterstorians

1/15
2. Daughter of a wealthy businessman, the family moved from Tunisia to Fez, Morocco during the rule of King Idriss II. When both her husband and father died, Fatima and her sister inherited a fortune.

They chose to spend their inheritance on building educational institutions.
3. In 859, Fatima built the Al-Qayrawan #Mosque, decorated in the Andalusian style with Kufic calligraphy (early style) engraved throughout. At 3,000 sq ft, it can fit 22,000 people.

She stacked it with Islamic works (Qur’ans, #Hadith collections, etc).

Statement regarding the first anniversary of attacks on #Afrin
January 20, 2019 | Press Releases

1-The great resistance and struggle of the peoples of western Kurdistan (Rojava) and Northern Syria has created a unique association within the community.
ypgrojava.org/ypgpressoffice…
2-Our struggle which started as a battle against #ISIS in west of #Kurdistan evolved into a revolution which has stood against all kinds of invasion attempts.
3-Spending all its energy trying to legitimize its #occupation of #Syrian lands, #Turkey has resumed its efforts to stop the progress our forces have made in west #Kurdistan and to undermine the democratic and revolutionary development of our people.

THREAD #Russia 14 POINTS #Maps+ critical #Geography #Geopolitics. Here is my hot take on “Understanding Russia,” a new book by Marlene Laruelle (@PONARS) and Jean Radvanyi (2018). I hardly agree w/ all "French Eurasia" & "anti-Russophobe" arguments; it IS worth a CLOSE read. 1/16
1. (1814/5-2014) Talleyrand 1814-5 & Keynes 1919 argument, & vs. Obama’s “regional” neo-containment (2008-14): Defeated Russia’s greatpowerness (derzhavnost’) is NOT avoidable. Sidelining a mil-nuclear & gas-rich power is dangerous. (Merkel: re: Putin in “another world.”) 2/16
2. (1954-91) One can consider, for the sake of argument, a postwar Moscow-Paris-Washington axis. The “disease” that neo-Empire Russia(ns) have is "trauma," a kind of geo-body loss, historically akin to French postcolonial retrenchment in proto-EU after the Algerian War. 3/16

Welcome to #NATO 101. Lesson 1
"The mere lack of #military #power is, in itself, not enough to cause a nation to lose its position vis-à-vis other states. That only happens when the people lose their individual integrity and the country gradually loses its national #integrity...
#NATO 101, Lesson 2
"No-one wants to cooperate with a country that has lost its integrity. [Even when] other countries have dealt unreasonably... who would want to damage the amity extant between [us, just by] sticking up for a state that has no national #integrity to begin with?
#NATO 101, Lesson 3.
"Many countries haven’t lost their international #prestige merely because of #poverty and #weakness... natural #disaster and poor #geography are enough to make a country weak and poor, and that can move others to sympathy. But lack of #integrity?
