🛑¿México es una potencia petrolera? Esta idea es común en el imaginario mexicano; veamos si los datos lo sustentan. Adelanto mi respuesta: NO.

1. Producción: en 20 años se redujo casi a la mitad.
- Estamos muy lejos de los principales productores.
2. Nivel de reservas probadas: 5.8 mil millones de barriles a 2019.
- Como se ve en la gráfica, el grueso de las reservas probadas se concentra en 25% de los países petroleros.
- Por su nivel de reservas probadas, México sería un país mediano-bajo.
3. Años restantes de recursos petroleros (R/P ratio):
- México tiene hidrocarburos suficientes para 8.3 años al nivel de producción y reservas a 2019.
- Estamos 10 años por debajo de la mediana mundial.

What this #mustread thread does not cover could be a long thread on its own – the racist, supremacist, depraved, psychopathic, pure evil attitude of Judaism viz. non-Jewish people and slavery, as recorded in their 'holy' laws and commentary, the Talmud.
Please watch at least the first 8 min of Prof. Martin's presentation above.

Compare his brief overview of the Hamitic Myth created by the depraved, penis-obsessed 'sages', with these pages from Robert Graves & Raphael Patai, The Hebrew Myths: The Book of Genesis.

Truth matters.

This has been a busy week as the @EU_Commission presented an unprecedented economic stimulus to confront what is the worst recession in the EU's history. Big shoutout to @europressos who has done an amazing job in bringing you all the details. A few reads for the weekend here 👇
Here's an overview of the three pillars €750 billion stimulus package, including an updated EU long-term budget and a newly designed recovery instrument.

An important part of the plan is to support the private sector by stimulating investment in key areas and supporting viable firms in troubles as a result of the #COVID19 crisis.

"This is not the story of reconciliation and grassroots peacemaking as framed by the Israeli organizers.
The real story is that it hijacked Israel's solemn day for remembering fallen soldiers and victims of terror attacks by saying that the day is also about Palestinians."
Absolute #MustRead @elderofziyon - who does a GREAT job explaining why this is just an appalling propaganda exercise
elderofziyon.blogspot.com/2020/04/joint-…
And this piece by @halbfinger illustrates splendidly how important @elderofziyon's debunking of the propaganda exercise is elderofziyon.blogspot.com/2020/04/joint-…

Juristen radikalisieren sich in #Coronakrise
[Thread]
(1/n) Die #Coronakrise unterbricht unser normales Leben, stellt uns vor Herausforderungen. Sie macht normale Dinge "unnormal"&unnormale Dinge "normal". Manche Menschen sind im "Normalcy Bias" gefangen. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Normalcy_…
(2/n) Dies gilt auch für Juristen. Eigentlich haben sie gute Instrumente wie "Praktische Konkordanz" de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Praktisch…, um auch in ungewöhnlichen Zeiten zu sinnvollen Ergebnissen zu kommen. Viele Juristen kommen daher zu abgewogenen Bewertungen. threadreaderapp.com/thread/1249689…
(3/n) Manche allerdings zeigen Verhaltensweisen, die ich bisher nur von Rechtspopulisten kannte & die bei Reichsbürgern endet. Elemente:
1. Ausblendung des Kontext
2. Ausblendung von Gegenargumenten
3. Dogmatische Schlußfolgerungen
4. Überschätzung eigener Profession/Person

(1/n) Reproduktionszahl R konvergiert in allen Ländern Richtung 1. Sinkt weiter, kein Plateau.
(2/n) Damit werden deutschlandweit auf ein ganzes Jahr dauerhaft Intensivbetten in der Größenordnung von 10.000 mit COVID-19-Patienten belegt. Kann Gesundheitssystem gerade so verkraften. Nach einem Jahr so nur etwa 1% der Bevölkerung mit SARS-CoV-2 infiziert.

#ChineseWuhanVirus BIOWEAPON

Explosive investigative thread piecing together the various shadowy incidents that occurred prior to the #COVID pandemic.

Proof, articles, citations included.

Not a lame ass conspiracy theory about stock buying but fact based research.
It is impossible to find out the full conspiracy at this stage & I don't like mindless speculation.

I'm attaching below proof & I'll be raising questions.

As more facts become known we shall have more info.

I'll attach links & pics of sources in case articles are pulled off.
Firstly a prominent virologist Xiangguo Qiu, her colleague and husband Keding Cheng, and an unknown number of her students from China were removed from the Canada's National Microbiology Lab in Winnipeg on July 5. 

The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) said that it advised

1/3. On 13 March, @Channel4News reported on a new rapid #coronavirus testing kit - made in the UK - that diagnoses #coronavirus in 10 minutes!

They aren't available in the UK yet.

#NHS staff can't get tested.

But this report shows test kits being sent to Bahrain. #covidー19
2/3. It seems utterly bizarre that boxes of rapid #Covid19 test kits are being exported around the world, whilst frontline #NHS staff have to risk their health without PPE or tests.

It would be great if @cathynewman & #C4News could ask @MattHancock what the logic is behind this.
3/3. Watching this the govt's U-turn is very stark.

"As the WHO urges countries to step up testing for #coronavirus, the UK appears to be adopting a different approach. Ystdy (12/3) it said it would only test people in hospital." #Covid19 #Corona #Covid

The perfect play for @JoeBiden ▶️ "If I were Joe Biden, I’d immediately announce Warren as my vice-presidential pick. I’d further say that I agree with her bail out terms, and that while I don’t have a vote in the Senate, she does and she’s my proxy."

washingtonmonthly.com/2020/03/18/bid…
Chatter grows for @JoeBiden to leverage @ewarren's "unquestioned mastery of the federal government and the levers of power" in #BidenWarren ticket. @ed_kilgore on the 🎯 LFG nymag.com/intelligencer/…
"Warren doesn’t just bolster his standing with a key, brand new base demographic ... but helps unify a party fragmented by a bruising primary" + "competence, intelligence, and binder full of plans, ready to be implemented on Day 1" makes her a 💥choice.

"CORONAVIRUS AND HONESTY

THERE ARE CERTAIN FACTS, WE ALL HAVE TO FACE.

A. This did start in #China. It is not racist to say so. It is fact. But no one in China wanted this. It was not done as an attack on the world’s economies or peoples. 1)
1)

Several countries have experimental laboratories working on dangerous things, not in order to use them as weapons, but to develop countermeasures. What happened in China was an accident, probably connected to maybe one person’s bad judgement. 2)
The problem that China is responsible for — is that they kept this problem a secret for more than a month, and thatvcontributed to the spread of this horrible disease.

A #MustRead -- A foreign government, India, and a pro-India advocacy group, Hindu American Foundation, have used intimidation, closed-doors meetings, etc. to stifle criticism from U.S. Congress amid rising anti-Muslim violence in Modi's India. A few notes: interc.pt/2Qg608D
That the Indian government is doing this is completely and totally unsurprising.

India is increasingly authoritarian, even fascist. They're turning on their own people.

What's shocking here is that US government reps are falling for propaganda (hello #Hindutva) and intimidation
Let's talk about The Hindu American Foundation (HAF) -- Those of us in the business of studying South Asia know that this group is right-wing. They have a long history of trying to intimidate scholars, for example, and censor Indian history. Consider how the article puts it:

I am proud of pastors who chose to move to virtual services today! Good choice, sisters and brothers! In this time of isolation there is REAL potential to transform our churches, if we leverage this period as an opportunity to thicken our gospel. 1/ #COVIDー19 #virtualchurch
In his book, Prayer, @FosterEveryday says connection w/ God happens in the silence. Could this be opportunity for national #soulreset? Could it be an opportunity for us to connect w/ God again—through deeper introspection and intentional listening to voices usually overlooked? 2/
I’d like to recommend #fivebooks for pastors to dive into with their congregations over the next 2-3 weeks; while we have the blessing of this national #soulreset. 3/ #COVIDー19 #SocialDistancing

Superb #MustRead -- because whether you like it or not, it's time for a megadose of cold-hearted realpolitik
And when reading @GadiTaub1's piece, you should also keep in mind this: the Middle East is not going to become less messy any time soon
@GadiTaub1 "The “apartheid” argument is still ubiquitous...but it has become something of a ghost: constantly haunting our debates without having any concrete weight... it has lost both its moral and political force, and survives mainly as a form of virtue signaling"

THREAD: The history India is silent on that must be revisited as we face the threat of #NRC detention. During the 1962 war with China, India rounded up thousands of Indians of Chinese descent saying they were "foreigners" & a threat, and jailed them for 5yrs in detention centres
2/ A book every Indian supporting the #NRC_CAA_NPR protests #MustRead if you really want to know how deep racist persecution runs through Indian history. Similarly, most Chinese rounded up and sent in trains to #detentioncentres in Deoli, Rajasthan, were from #Assam & #Bengal.
3/ The 3000 Chinese, the Indian govt put into detention centres in 1962 were 2nd/3rd generation in India. Many died in detention due to sickness & starvation. Most were FORCEFULLY deported but did not want to go as India was home! #NRC_CAA_NPR

Children, young girls—some as young as 9 years old—are being bought and sold for sex in America. The average age for a young woman being sold for sex is now 13 years old.

La publication de la dernière évaluation du plan Écophyto a donné lieu à moult articles, maladroits, incomplets (malhonnêtes ?). Mais qu’entend donc par pesticides ? C’est le Thread du mercredi, pour y voir plus clair. Déroule ! ⤵️⤵️
Alors déjà, dites vous bien, si vous n’êtes pas familiers du sujet, que les pesticides, c’est vieux comme Hérode et que ce terme renvoie à différents types de produits, naturels ou de synthèse, et à des modes d’action différents.
Il y a d’un côté les insecticides, qui luttent contre les insectes, simple, les herbicides qui permettent de lutter contre les végétaux adventices. (mauvaises herbes), basique, et les fongicides qu’on utilise pour maîtriser ou prévenir les attaques de… champignons.

1/n India needs a MILLION whistleblowers.

None of the frauds - Karvy, PMC, PNB, ILFS etc are the handiwork of a few individuals. It's large scale fraud, with many dirty hands.

Looked another way: they are a result of the silence of the honest employees.

thehindubusinessline.com/markets/stock-…
2/n We need a whistleblower policy that rewards, encourages and protects whistleblowers.

That’s the only way to cut down white collar fraud. Adding more red tape, more rules and processes will NOT help.
3/n More red tape just burdens all the players in the industry and increases the cost of doing business.

The good suffer on behalf of the bad.

We have seen how the auditors, the rating agencies, the watchdogs and even the most sophisticated computer systems are compromised.

A young man saw his primary school teacher on a wedding.
He went to greet him with all the respect and admiration.

He said to him:
"Do you remember me, Teacher?"

The teacher said: "No, please introduce yourself."
The student said: "I was your student in the 3rd Grade, I am the one who stole the watch of a child in the classroom. I will remind you but I am sure you remember the story."

One of the boys in my class had a beautiful watch, so I decided to steal it.
