Este sábado la República Islámica de Mauritania celebra la segunda vuelta de sus elecciones parlamentarias para renovar los 176 escaños de la Asamblea Nacional.

(abro hilo)

#Elections2023 #Elecciones2023 ImageImageImage
Mauritania es una república semipresidencial. Para la elección de su Asamblea Nacional, el país emplea uno de los sistemas de voto paralelo más complejos del mundo, pues el elector emite CUATRO (sí, cuatro) votos para las distintas variantes. Vamos a hacer el esfuerzo... Image
De los 176 escaños que componen la Asamblea Nacional, se eligen 125 en circunscripciones uninominales o plurinominales (dependiendo de la población), basadas en los 44 departamentos. La capital, Nuakchot, se divide en tres distritos electorales con 7 escaños cada una. ImageImage

Explaining the @RepMattGaetz Interrogation on US-Trained African Coup Leaders

A thread 🪡

@RepMattGaetz recently had an excellent performance in Congress, where he interviewed the head of US Africa Command, General Langley, about the string of coups led by US-trained military leaders:

@RepMattGaetz did a very good job, but, I don't know if he understands the larger international relations story here, or if he considers it inconvenient to his narrative, which is the noble goal of getting US troops out of Africa:

Hoy tenemos hilo de #VayaGeología 🥳🎉🪅🍾🎉🥳🍾🪅

Conoceremos un curioso modelado de origen eólico. Viajamos a escenarios desérticos y con bastante viento: los YARDANGS 🏜️🏜️ #geología

¿Te apetece acompañarme? Pues puente gafas para que no se te meta la arena en los ojos ⤵️⤵️
Cuando la partículas se levantan de la superficie por la acción del viento e impactan en las rocas a velocidades importantes se produce un modelado
por erosión eólica. Es común en zonas áridas y con poca vegetación ⤵️
El viento erosiona por deflación: movilización y transporte de material suelto superficial. La abrasión es el desgaste mecánico, el impacto de los granos que produce fracturación en la roca ⤵️

🇲🇦 Marruecos no hace nada por controlar la salida de inmigrantes ilegales desde territorios controlados administrativamente por el régimen alauita.

📢 Está ocurriendo, ahora. Y es algo que pasa desapercibido para la mayor parte de medios de comunicación.

📌 Abro hilo… ⇩
📊 Durante los últimos 10 días, un total de 440 inmigrantes ilegales han llegado a Canarias. Más de la mitad (248) lo han hecho en las últimas 24 horas.

🇲🇦 El 87% (383) han partido desde territorios donde las autoridades marroquíes ejercen su control.

Vayamos por partes… ⇩
🗓 02/05/2022:

Lots of pretty bad Anglophone commentary on #Algeria these days, but this one in Newsweek has got to be (among) the worst.

A thread.

I’m a strong believer in sticking in your lane.

@GordonGChang should probably have done so.

His latest on #Algeria is all over the road and recklessly so.

Let’s start with the second sentence. First, #Algeria didn’t "create" the crisis with #Morocco

Second, I’m not sure Algiers sees it as much of a crisis.

The next two weeks promise to bring astonishing weather to both sides of the Red Sea & across the Sahara. In this weather bulletin I will explain what the models are forecasting.

Today's #NorthAfrica #HornOfAfrica and #MiddleEast rainfall forecasts follow.
In the image above we see part of Arabia and part of the #NileBasin storms - those which feed the Blue Nile/Abbay and the Tekeze basins the source of most of the Nile's flow.
Below we see:
1. All Nile Basin rainfall as of this evening
2. All of this evenings #ArabianStorms
The rainfall we see on both sides of the Red Sea comes mostly from the same source - the monsoon over the Arabian Sea, India and South East Asia.
A satellite image from this morning shows what we currently think to be the cradle of humanity. Where we all come from.

Sergey Soygu, Russian defence minister, has subbed #America like eight times in his speech. FTT, he's right. America has lost the war in #Afghanistan.

"#Africa is of particular concern because our Western partners have not allowed them to stabilise economically."

Is he right? Image
He just reminded us that the Soviet Union supported many liberation movements with #Africa, and has offered a hand of friendship.

P.S I hate it when they (and they're all guilty of this) of talking of Africa as a country.
Another direct sub: "we will sign agreements with our African friends without imposing our ways on you like our Western partners do."

This morning's rainfall forecast is actually last nights (I am in the process of moving - a bit stretched. There is a lot going on.

Here we see the ongoing impacts of a #WestAfricaWaterPlume coming into the Middle East and 2 large storms, one over Syria and one over Medina
Here are last night's 10-day rainfall forecasts for North Africa which are nothing short of astonishing with respect especially to what is expected in #Algeria and #Mauritania. The largest forecast #DesertRain event to date.
This animation is from the is morning and shows the current status of both #WestAfricanMonsoon events. The Plume directed at the #MiddleEast is continuing and the one in the west Sahara is strengthening.

Did you know that #Africa's 55 countries account for just 1.5% of #COVID19 vaccines administered globally? Why? Incompetent governments? Vaccine hesitancy? Poor vaccine efficacy? Our new monthly #infographic report uses the data to explain... A 🧵1/…
To date, less than 3% of the world's #COVID19 cases have been recorded in #Africa, despite having only administered 1.5% of the world's vaccines, and 2% of the world's #COVID19 tests... 2/
However, #Africa is not a country. It's possible to split African countries into 6 categories - depending on total cases they have recorded. Of the 55 African countries, 6 varied countries are currently seeing new daily records of #COVID19 deaths... 3/

Today's #ArabianStorms went in a different direction during the day, but ended up in a familiar place in the end.

Today's #MiddleEast and #Ethiopia #HornOfAfrica rain forecasts follow in the thread below.
In the animation above you can see a flow of clouds from Sudan to Oman. This flow actually originates to the South West in the Central African Republic. Here you see the CAR to Khartoum leg of the journey.
Over the day this stream of moisture intensified powering storms in Oman, which then split into two streams, one heading north over Iran and one to the East to India.

Today during Black Immigrant Advocacy Week of Action, we call on @POTUS and @DHS_Secretary to use their authority to designate #TPS and #DED now to protect Black lives! #Act4BlackImms
At least 3.9 million people are in need of humanitarian aid in #Cameroon and half a million are displaced by conflict. @DHS_Secretary must designate #CameroonTPS now! Learn more here: #Act4BlackImms
40,000 Cameroonians in the U.S. are at risk of deportation to multiple ongoing conflicts in Cameroon. #TPS would safeguard people and keep families united. @DHS_Secretary must designate #CameroonTPS Now! #Act4BlackImms Image

[THREAD] 1/8 Contributing to the debate around the roles of the State, NGOs & intl partners in aid process post #BeirutBlast. Yes, NGOs can’t replace state institutions & sidelining the State could undermine long-term recovery prospects… BUT
2/8 What are State institutions doing & showing to convince citizens, NGOs & intl partners to engage & re-channel part of the aid through the institutions? Some interesting & promising initiatives live @impact_gov @LebanonAid driven by dedicated teams, open to scrutiny… BUT
3/8 State institutions have shown #Lebanon representatives' disgraceful attitude during the Dec2 intl donors meeting. @General_Aoun’s speech focused more on scoring political points against @saadhariri on gov formation & didn’t address citizens’ pain outlined by NGOs & partners
