The thread based on this article went ballistic
- I *suspect* because of #Kraftwerk rather than #IRTheory
BUT there's something more to the piece than just the international politics of #Germany's postwar cultural history.
Short(er) 🧵
Difference has always been at the heart of #InternationalRelations (#IR)
- The very notion of ‘relations’ requires difference between the units doing the relating
- Despite the name, IR focused on states rather than nations as the units that related to each other. Image
These states, seen as clearly distinguishable were often imagined to represent particular nations, which could be seen as different - & neatly, even ‘naturally’ bordered from each other (e.g. Agnew, 1994).

Ein sehr schöner Teil des Lehrens an der #uni ist die Möglichkeit damit zu experimentieren, wie man das kreative Potenzial der Studierenden erschließen kann. Dieses Semester habe ich ein neues Experiment gestartet - ich entwickle mit meinen Studierenden ein #Strategiespiel.
Es hat den Arbeitstitel "The Next Proliferator" und soll veranschaulichen, von welchen Faktoren es abhängt, ob ein Staat sich #Nuklearwaffen aneignen kann oder eben nicht.…
Zunächst haben die Studierenden in der Vorlesungsphase des Kurses eine Einführung in die technischen Aspekte der Nutzung von Nuklearenergie und die wissenschaftliche Debatte über die sogenannte demand-side (warum?) und supply-side (wie?) nuklearer #Proliferation erhalten.

Here we go. 1st intl work trip since Feb 2020.

I used to travel outside UK almost once a month before 2020 -spreading msg of health justice.

I know I will not do that again soon, if ever. Let’s see if we can spread the message without as many airplane trips!

Sobre as doações ao ex-procur. da República Deltan Dallagnol: doações são isentas de imposto de renda #IR (Regulamento do IR – Decreto 9.580/2018, art. 35, inciso VII, alínea c). Elas sujeitam-se ao imp. estadual sobre transmissões e doações do domicílio tributário do donatário.
O Regulamento do IR não define limite para a isenção de doações, diferentemente do que faz para os rendimentos de trabalho remunerado. Também não diferencia a natureza da doação. +
O valor das doações recebidas é relevante para definir a obrigação tributária acessória de prestar declaração de IR. Doações acima de R$ 40 mil impõem o dever do donatário (o recebedor) de apresentar declaração de rendimentos à Receita Federal, não o dever de pagar IR. +

1/1 Our #openaccess article (with @MagnusLLundgren and @_vincenzobove) is now online at Journal of Conflict Resolution!

“Politics or Performance? Leadership Accountability in UN Peacekeeping”
2/2 Does the #UN Secretariat hold leaders of #peacekeeping operations (SRSGs) and Force Commanders (FCs) accountable for mission performance?

Mission performance ≠ only actions of leaders, but sanctioning SRSGs and FCs allows Secretariat to signal a commitment to accountability
3/3 Sanctions = contract non-renewal, early termination, even public dismissal (only SRSG Gaye and FC Ondieki so far)

The Secretariat faces a politics-performance trade-off (Comparative Politics concept ➡️ #IR): difficult to fire SRSGs and FCs from powerful or pivotal countries

All this 20 years of struggle and, then - cowardly deserting Afghanistan leaves the following conclusions:
1) There is a limit to the effectiveness of, even, the 'boots-on-the-ground' measures. No matter how overwhelming the forces you have, you can't win a War if the Opposition
opts for the doughty guerrilla warfare.
You can't subjugate such resistance, and try for peace building, without bringing the contextual parties on the table for power-sharing talks.

2) No super power in the History has been made as overstretched as the USA has been now.
So, if the point #1 rebuts Mearsheimer's weightage towards the effectiveness of the Land power,
this point (#2) re-affirms his 'tragedy' - you need that economic base to be a preponderant power in all theatres.
It's tough to define the USA a 'superpower' now as it can't do this.

Here’s some clarity re #KR1’s share register:

Nominee co’s are set up by major brokers/custodians/etc. to aggregate individual sharehldgs, both large & in reality, Vidacos does NOT own a 25.5% stake.

And no, #WarrenBuffett does NOT have a direct/indirect hldg in KR1!
This nominee system does NOT absolve individual/inst’l investors of req’t to report major 3%+ stakes & any significant chg in hldgs...which you can track via #KR1 RNS:…

Ideally, KR1 wd also break out these stakes (on a look-through) basis for investors...
And I highlighted major #KR1 stakes in my Nov post:…

Largest hldg belongs to KR1 team itself (& Smaller Co Capital)...tht’s 15%+ in KR1’s fully diluted share capital.

That does NOT inc. 80% of their 2020 bonus to be granted in shares...

Thread: The statements and evidences on the horrendous atrocities taking place in the war on #Tigray #Ethiopia are mounting, despite the fed gov imposed information blockage. | Terrified' survivors recount attacks on civilians in Tigray | AFP via @YouTube
It seems clear that widespread and systematic #humanrights violations mounting to #CrimesAgainstHumanity and #WarCrimes are taking place in #Tigray #Ethiopia.
Whether we are also observing a #Genocide in the making in #Tigray #Ethiopia, is leagally speaking too early to confirm due to lack of access. #GenocideWatch and #UN special advisor on the prevention of genocide have expressed concerns in this regard however.

Get dirty as soon as possible. Don't fall into thinking you are not ready. Sure, you will be confused by many things at first. That's fine! I used to confuse sections and segments when I started. Keep pushing, and things will become clear naturally.

Get used to (re)name *everything* in your disassembler. You might be able to mentally track data across registers and memory for small crackmes w/ easy control flow, but this does not scale at all. Unclutter your mind. Make your life easier.

अर्मेनिया-अझरबैझान (1)

अर्मेनिया-अझरबैझान मधील संघर्ष आता नवे रूप घेतेय. ज्याप्रकारे प्रॉक्सी वॉर साठी सौदी-इराणने यमन,सीरीयाचा वापर केला अगदी त्याच प्रकारे हे युद्ध तुर्की, इस्राएल विरुद्ध रशिया,इराणचे रूप घेण्यास वेळ लागणार नाही. नागर्नो-काराबाख बहाणा आहे, हेतू खूप मोठा आहे.
सोव्हिएत रशियन (1920) काळापासून सुरू असलेल्या या संघर्षात कधीही दुसरी राष्ट्रे इतक्या तावातावाने समोर आली नव्हती पण आता तुर्की सेक्युलर राहिली नाही ना तुर्कीची 'झिरो प्रॉब्लेम्स विथ नेबर' पॉलिसी अस्तित्वात आहे, त्यामुळे आपल्या पारंपरिक प्रतिस्पर्धी रशिया विरुद्ध नवी आघाडी
उघडण्यासाठी तुर्कीचे राष्ट्राध्यक्ष एर्दोगान टपून बसले होते अन् त्यांच्या हातात अर्मेनिया- अझरबैझानच्या रुपात सुवर्णसंधी चालून आली. एर्दोगानचे दिवास्वप्न आहे की तुर्कीने पुन्हा एकदा इस्लामिक जगताचे एकहाती नेतृत्व करावे आणि ऑटोमन साम्राज्याची स्थापना व्हावी व स्वतःला खलिफा घोषित

ℹ️🔥 Por forma à #VOSTPT estar permanentemente alinhada com a #ANEPC, na designação /categorização das ocorrências de #incêndios, vamos deixar de usar a #IFNomeDoConcelho (IF=Incêndio Florestal), para passar a #IRNomeDoConcelho (IR=Incêndio Rural).
Esta alteração surge, não só para facilitar os esforços das duas entidades na monitorização das Redes Sociais, mas também devido às várias categorias que Incêndio Rural (#IR) pressupõe, sendo o Incêndio Florestal (#IF) uma dessas categorias, conforme podes verificar nesta tabela.

This #Juneteenth, I'm taking time to remember my grandpa's grandparents. Mark Gassaway was born into slavery. He and his wife, Carrie Walls Gassaway, became impactful educators. Here's their story, rich with deep research by my uncle, Charles Kellogg, and cousin @kkellogg309. 1/n
Don't miss the part where Mark Gassaway became the first African American college graduate in Anderson County, South Carolina and started being called “Professor Gassaway.” @kkellogg309 2/n
…Or the part where Carrie Walls graduated in one of the first classes from @SpelmanCollege (then known as Spelman Seminary) in the 1880s. @kkellogg309 3/n

Associar a estupidez ao fogo controlado é simplesmente uma estupidez 🤷
O problema de saúde resultante de emissões de gases nocivos não está no uso do fogo controlado, está sim na poluição provocada pelo tecido industrial e pelos meios de transporte. 🏭🚛 @ANEPC #ICNF
Defendo várias medidas para mitigar o impacto dos #Incendios rurais 🔥
▶️ Desmatação dos terrenos em redor das povoações criando zonas com vegetação resistente ao fogo 🌳
▶️ Criação de zonas de "terra viva" em redor das habitações, zonas livres de combustível vegetal🏠
▶️ Dar continuidade a projetos como as "cabras sapadoras" que naturalmente vão limpando os terrenos 🐏
▶️ Dar continuidade à sensibilização para a limpeza dos terrenos e consequente aplicação das coimas para os incumpridores da Lei em vigor. ☑️❎

Kommentar zum Artikel:
Bei unseren Kunden wurden alle #Netscaler unmittelbar nach bekanntwerden des Workaround angepasst.
Nach genauerer Analyse mussten wir aber feststellen, dass "alle" Netscaler bereits #kompromitiert sind. 1/x

#Citrix #Shitrix #fail…
Da auf den Systemen durch die #Exploit's offensichtlich unter anderem auch #Cronjob's eingerichtet wurden, welche irgendwann in Zukunft beliebigen Code von russischen Servern nachladen...jeder Anwender absolut sicherstellen, dass sein System nicht bereits #kompromitiert wurde.
Der angekündigte #Hotfix, wird die bereits entstandenen Probleme sicher nicht lösen. Aus unserer Sicht hilft ausschließlich eine komplette #Neuinstallation der #Komponenten, verbunden mit einem unmittelbaren unmittelbares umsetzen des #Workaround bevor das System online geht.

Bu zincirde okuduğum ve okunmasının faydalı olduğu düşündüğüm biraz aşağıdaki alanlarla ilgilenenlerin okumasının gerekli olduğunu düşündüğüm makaleleri paylaşacağım.
Tabii özellikle uluslararası ilişkiler, siyaset bilimi ve tarih üzerine olanları.
İlk makalem John Mearsheimer’ın “Back to the Future” makalesi. Özellikle çok kutuplu, iki kutuplu sistemi, yani Soğuk Savaşı anlamak için kült bir makale. Soğuk Savaş’ta nasıl uzun süreli barış sağlandı sorusuna cevap arıyor yazar. Günümüzdeki büyük güçlerin mücadelesi + Image
Uluslararası Sistemi anlamak için önemli.
Özellikle Çin’in yükselişiyle ne gibi bir durum oluşacak sorusunun cevabını bulmaya da yardımcı olacak.

What do we think about the rise of this new political entity, called “the civilizational state”? Several #IR works offer guidance regarding the relationship between #civilizations and the liberal international order. A (long!) thread--->
1) The discussion often starts with an understanding of civilizations as culturally distinct units. For Huntington, a consensus-based liberal order is not durable because civilizational differences are incommensurable.…
2) But as Huntington’s critics have shown, civilizations have porous borders and are internally pluralistic. Katzenstein’s trilogy, for example, shows that there are more trans-civilizational engagements and inter-civilizational interactions.…

En ces temps où le débat sur la fiscalité fait rage, je vous propose un fil sur une série de propositions que je qualifierais de réformes de « tuyauterie », par opposition aux réformes de « robinet ». 1/14
Les réformes que je qualifie de « robinet » portent sur des changements des paramètres fiscaux (taux, seuils des tranches et exonération) des barèmes déjà existants. Elles peuvent poursuivre différents objectifs (justice fiscal, emploi, croissance, …) 2/14
Les réformes de « tuyauterie » changent l’organisation de la fiscalité. A titre d’exemple, la fusion IR/CSG, le prélèvement à la source… Dans leur forme épurée, les réformes de tuyauterie ne devraient pas changer les transferts, mais seulement la manière de les organiser 3/14

06/01/2019 - 78 years ago today, the longest-serving #UnitedStates #President, #Franklin D. #Roosevelt (#FDR) addressed the 77th #Congress with his "#Four #Freedoms" speech with the intent to shift #US #foreign #policy from that of #neutrality to #interventionist.
#FDR promoted the idea that the people of the world, in all nations, shared entitlement to four freedoms: that of the freedom of speech and expression, the freedom of worship, the freedom from want and the freedom from fear.
#FDR is arguably one of the most 'successful' #US Presidents. Some would argue that on the basis of his numerous social policies such as 'the New Deal'. Others, however, would argue that his role during the second world war was more prevalent to his success & everlasting legacy.
