The answer - Yes. I think the EU will be in a recession with little to do about it (because their credit markets are already a mess) than to print money that will eventually devalue the Euro and only be a temporary fix. 2) #EURecession
I believe the UK will have a recession if they cannot find a solution to Brexit that does not solve the Irish issue, but if that issue is solved, and deals are made with North America and the Commonwealth, that can be reversed. 3) #BREXIT #Irish #US #Recession

Let me ask @realDonaldTrump, should these women have gone home for asking for Freedom?

They were complaining about their status in America?

@realDonaldTrump Should Mohammed Ali been asked to go home for speaking out?

@realDonaldTrump Should the #Irish have been asked to go home?

Interesting results on people's self-described national identity in Northern Ireland from 2016-2018 using @ARK_info NI Life & Times survey data when considering the variable of religion.

Breakdown of respondents is roughly 4/10 Catholic, 4/10 Protestant & 2/10 No Religion.

1/4
We see that 2016-2018 there has been very little change since 2016 in the proportion of #Catholic respondents saying they have Irish-only and predominantly-Irish identity.
Notably, c.1 in 10 describe themselves as having an 'other' identity.

Here are the 2018 results 👇 
2/4
There has been a significant shift among #Protestant respondents towards having a more exclusively British identity.
That said, the proportion saying that their identity is (at least) mainly British has remained stable after a boost in 2017.
Here are the 2017 results

This is a #Thread about one of the many trolls who is targeting #Native and #Indigenous @Twitter accounts.

The account #@Blondi65003273 is interacting with #NativeAmericans by #JustAskingQuestions

Nothing obviously provocative.

#NativeTwitter
One of Blondi’s followers is another account that claims to be #Native #Ojibwe
However, one of her first posts demonstrate her to be not your average concerned Wisconsin #Native from the North Woods. She posts a picture of a dismembered body that is supposed to convince voters that we need a stronger immigration policy to deter crime.

This year: 200th #anniversary of the #publication of #Goethe's great work of #art "#WestöstlicherDivan".#Heisenberg memorized #love-#poems from the book while working on #QuantumMechanics in #Heligoland.
#Schubert it to #music:
The #poem sung by #ElisabethSchwarzkopf is on p. 166 of the 1819 edition and reproduced below, side-by-side with the 1914 translation by #Irish critic and #poet Edward Dowden (1843-1913).The translation is close, but NOT accurate (as Dowden tries to recreate rhyme and rhythm).

Remark. The unclear phrase 'zu jemandes Herzen sprechen' was
allegedly utilized by #Heidegger in at least one letter sent to
#HannahArendt in 1925: cf. lisa.gerda-henkel-stiftung.de/ich_muss_heute….

I am glad to see @PatrickStrud’s article quoting 5 British feminist academics who quite rightly remind us that feminism must include rights of trans women. It reminds me of an argument that happened after 1 of my talks in #London when 2 white lesbians bombarded me w/ transphobia
I mention that the 2 transphobic lesbians were white because they followed me to dinner after my talk where a gay #Saudi man, a bisexual Saudi woman and I defended trans rights against those two. In no other country have transphobes followed me to dinner after my talk to argue.
I wanted to eat & to talk w/my friends and the transphobes wanted to lecture. I told them that as far as I was concerned trans women are women and the fight against patriarchy had to include trans rights.And then I said i had just spent 90mins on a lecture & Q&A & I wanted to eat

A big theme in my speeches across Western US is the formative impact that Irish people & those of Irish descent have had in shaping modern day Western US. This is very true in #SanFrancisco where there is huge Irish heritage & where we have a vibrant @GlobalIrish community today!
Around 11% of the Bay Area is of Irish descent & there is a large Irish born community too. The people to people connections between the region & Ireland are very strong as evidenced by multiple sister city connections: @sfgov & @corkcitycouncil; @CityofSanJose & @DubCityCouncil
@SantaClaraCity & @LimerickCouncil are sister cities, as are @CityofMenloPark & @GalwayCityCo! Quick shout out to Kathy Watanabe @Carunningmom, the Vice Mayor of Santa Clara with proud #Roscommon heritage. Here’s me meeting with Mayor @LisaGillmor & Kathy earlier this year.

Why GDP and GNP should NOT be used as reference points for measuring the size of #Ireland economy? Two charts: 1) The two measures are not even on-trend with the real demand, 2) The gap between MNCs-shenanigans in Irish Nat. Accounts & the real domestic demand is MASSIVE 82% +
+ So for all my learned friends, esp in the likes of @CatoInstitute @FraserInstitute @danieljmitchell et al: what your Indices of Economic Freedom rankings for #Ireland reflect is the vast transfer of economic power from the residents of Ireland to Multinational Corporates. +
+ As long as you continue to reference Irish GDP as a base for your Indices, you will miss the true extent of over-regulation, over-taxation, cronyism, corruption imposed onto ordinary Irish people, businesses, & entrepreneurs, by the monopolization of Irish policies & politics+

1/ Extreme civilisation, late-stage capitalism, whatever you want to call it: this thread👇🏼 is about THE. LEAST. SUSTAINABLE. THING. EVER! And it’s Irish...

2/ Yes, it’s Irish peat used as bedding for methane-belching cows & other farm animals!

Why? It’s cheaper than straw because straw prices are👆🏼because, well, climate-induced drought...

@KOSullivanIT @ellamcsweeney @RTENewsPaulC @GeorgeMonbiot @paulbmelia @GeorgeLeeRTE
3/ It costs the Earth 🌏 but Irish peat really is the “lap of luxury” for cows! 🐄

A bilingual sign tells you more than just where you need to go.

It tells you a country has more than one native language.

It tells you how the names for places are connected, or sometimes not, between languages.

It teaches you what others call that place in their language.
It demonstrates that the country values linguistic diversity and equality between linguistic communities.

It may tell you that you are entering a place whether another language is more predominent.
It tells you that you may expect to hear another language or experience another culture upon arrival.

It may tell you that folk spoke a now minoritised language in a place before the dominant majority language.

It's been 5 months since the #Parkland massacre. On the 14th of the month I've been tweeting each of the portraits I drew.

"He was a very funny kid, outgoing and sometimes really quiet," wrote Miguel Duque, about his baby brother #MartinDuque.
What a disgrace for our country that students are murdered in school.
Remembering Martin, 5 months after his death.

Cara means "friend" in #Irish.
Cara's funeral was held on her 15th birthday.
Her father came here from Ireland to pursue the American dream.

Heartbreaking.

Cú Chulainn is believed to be an incarnation of the god #Lugh, who is also his father! His mother is the mortal Deichtine, sister of Conchobar mac Nessa, the King of #Ulster who ruled from #NavanFort near #Armagh. #CúChulainn #Irishmyths #Irishlegends #FolkloreThursday
Born Sétanta, Cú Chulainn gained his name as a child, after killing Culann's fierce guard-dog in self-defence & offered to take its place until a replacement could be reared! Used a standing stone or by driving a sliotar down its throat with his hurley! #FolkloreThursday
Cathbad the druid announced one day that anyone who drew arms would have everlasting fame! So Cú Chulainn only 7 years old, asked for arms! But Cathbad grieved because he had not finished his prophecy-the warrior who took arms that day would have a short life! #FolkloreThursday
