1/4 After the russian invasion #oil prices skyrocketed which is very beneficial to oil refinery countries like #India. russia provides them huge discounts, selling oil for 30-35 dollars/barrel (meanwhile on the international market the price is 120 dollars/barrel)
#Banrussianoil
2/4 Most ships delivering oil are #European, #British or #Norwegian - up to 68%. 43% more were of #Greek origin. For ships delivering to India this percentage is even higher - approximately 80 %.
3/4 Since the full-scale invasion, export of refined #oil products from India rapidly grew from 580 000 to 685 000 barrels a day. A lot of it gets exported to Asian countries, but around 20% is purchased by Europe and the US.

⚡What #Ukraine needs asap to win the war: Air-Defense Systems.
@KpsZSU

You might have seen that the US is already helping a lot. This is true. #Ukrainians are thankful a lot. But it’s not enough for 🇺🇦 to protect the whole world from a massive threat to humanity.
(1/9)
🇷🇺air force is enormous, over 10 times as large as @KpsZSU. Without sufficient anti-aircraft systems, 🇷🇺will have free reign to destroy everything – artillery, command posts, tanks and entire 🇺🇦 cities.
(2/9)
That is precisely why at the beginning of the invasion 🇷🇺 was trying hard to achieve air dominance. If they succeed, it will just be a matter of time until 🇷🇺wins the war.

🇮🇷#Iran - #Terrorism - Criminal Outsourcing - An unprecedented operation involving 15 international #intelligence agencies has exposed an #Iranian terror infrastructure that was planning a series of assassinations against #Israeli and #Western targets around the world. 1/22
It started in June, when #Colombia's Dirección Nacional de Inteligencia (#DNI) issued an imminent security alert after determining two Israeli businessmen were the targets of an #assassination attempt planned and financed by a high-ranking Iranian #Quds Force officer. 2
That officer, Rahmat Asadi, is regarded by Western intelligence organizations as a dangerous #terrorist.
The businessmen and their families had to quickly leave Bogotá under rigorous security measures. 3

1/ It hasn't been clear where the UN #FoodSystems Summit is getting its budget from. Using official docs, @larsms has shown that Norway is helping them out:

Question is: Why #Norway & does all this have to do with the #Davos crowd again? Thread 👇🧵
2/ Let's start with a reminder of this infamous deal between the @WEF and the @UN, dating from 2019, before the Summit. weforum.org/press/2019/06/…
3/ The person standing on the left in the previous picture, next to Schwab, is Børge Brende, President of the WEF. A #Norwegian ex-minister.

Here a Thread about #Norwegian and #Peace #politics and the @NATO:
The Norwegians want their government to be more transparent about security policy

#Russia #China #geopolitics #USA

nzz.ch/international/…
The arrival of an American bomber squadron for a stay of several weeks in Norway caused considerable political unrest. Critics fear an undermining of the country's security doctrine, which prohibits the stationing of foreign soldiers in peacetime.
The left-leaning daily «Dagsavisen», for example, stated that it was about another example of Norway becoming more and more of a «prominent American military base».

#Hydronomastics is the study of #hydronyms, the proper names of bodies of water.

It's a branch of #toponomastics, the study of #toponyms (the proper names of places), which in turn is a branch of #onomastics, the study of #orthonyms (proper names).

Hola @alferdez. Ya se lo están avisando desde el mismísimo peronismo racional. De esos que dicen “que acompañan hasta la puerta del cementerio, pero no ingresan”. Hombre!, deje de hacerse el guevarista que nadie le cree. No le sale. Tampoco lo aceptan los kumpitas de Cristina!
Capte el mensaje de @MiguelPichetto y más allá de su gobierno, el del zabeca de Banfield, @eduardoaduhalde. Aún no tiene una rebelión de gobernadores del #PJ, porque están utilizando ese pequeño margen de suba de impuestos. Pero la #cuarentena termina y Ud. @alferdez les quitó👇
Ud. les quitó un gran recurso extra a sus gobernadores del #PJ. Algo que en la pos pandemia valdrá oro: el turismo interno. Las “low cost” se están retirando del país por presiones de La Cámpora con Aerolíneas con Don Pablo Biró. Se terminaron los vuelos de cabotaje @LATAM_ARG

2. .@bartongellman writes about #NSA's #PRISM accessing users' data from #Google,#Facebook,#Apple, and "Also a service called #Paltalk,which I had not heard of but which presumably hosted accounts of attractive targets". Why #PalTalk? I think I have an explanation
3. I think it is very likely that #PalTalk was of great interest for the #NSA because it was used by people in contact with the #MullahKrekar.I have read the investigation conducted by the Italian anti-terror police #ROS in collaboration with EU and US

In the early part of the first millennium CE, the #IndoEuropean language known as Proto-#Germanic diverged into an East branch (which included #Gothic) and a Northwest branch.

Northwest then split into West and North branches when Proto-#Norse developed in #Scandinavia. Image
Until the 8th century, #Germanic #languages, including Proto-#Norse, were written in Elder Futhark, the earliest #runic #alphabet.

The name #Futhark comes from the initial phonemes in the names of the first six #runes:
ᚠ ᚢ ᚦ ᚨ ᚱ ᚲ
F U Þ A R K

By the beginning of the #Viking Age around 800 CE, Proto-#Norse had evolved into Old Norse, and #Scandinavia's writing system transitioned from the 24 #runes of Elder #Futhark to Younger Futhark's 16 runes.

The #Swedish #Sparlösa #Runestone from ~800 CE features both #alphabets. Image
