Panda-Diplomatie: Der #Panda ist ein erfolgreiches Soft-Power-Tool Chinas. Seit 2017 lebt ein Panda-Paar im Berliner Zoo. Dokumente, die @FlorianFlade u. @PinkertReiko vorliegen, zeigen, wie sehr sich Deutschland um die Leihgabe aus #China bemühte. Sogar die Kanzlerin persönlich. Image
Unterlagen aus dem Bundeskanzleramt und der Berliner Senatsverwaltung, die #NDRWDRSZ vorliegen, dokumentieren, wie die Berliner Landesregierung das Kanzleramt unter Merkel überzeugen konnte, sich für die #Panda-Leihgabe einzusetzen. Wir veröffentlichen die Dokumente hier. #IFG
Die Dokumente verdeutlichen, wie aus einem Anliegen der Berliner Politik geradezu ein weltpolitisches Unterfangen wurde, um das politische Klima zwischen Deutschland und #China zu verbessern - die sogenannte #Panda-Diplomatie.

stars of Tanabata

Tanabata (七夕), also known as 'Hoshi-matsuri' (星祭り 'Star Festival'), celebrates the reunion of Orihime & Hikoboshi on the 7th day of the 7th month. ImageImageImageImage
Tanabata (七夕) evolved from 1 of the 'Go-sekku' (五節句), 5 events held on auspicious days throughout the year. Imported by the imperial court from China, these festivals now coincide with the 1st January, 3rd March, 5th May, 7th July and 9th September.

At the end of February, #RoyalAscot #Panda casino made quite a splash in the run-up to its 8th birthday #Celebration by announcing the RoyalJackpot, an exclusive progressive network, tied to some of the most sought-after… online slots.

If @Google #Panda and #Penguin hadn't already been assimilated into the Borg, they'd be having algorithmic

Welcome back to another episode of the #WildAboutFacts series. Today, we are taking over your feed with pictures and #trivia of one of the most alluring creatures from the #wild, the #RedPanda.

Join us, share your #photographs of the #Firefox of the #Himalayas.

📷Sourav Mondal

Its distinctive fur has earned this species monikers such as #Firefox, Firecat, or Fire-coloured Cat. Arguably, the #RedPanda is the only true #Panda, as the #GiantPanda, which is believed to be closely related, belongs to the #bear family.

📷Senthil Murugan

Around half of the #RedPanda’s natural habitat lies in the Eastern #Himalayas#Nepal, #Sikkim, northern #WestBengal, #Bhutan, and #ArunachalPradesh.

Its remaining home is in northern #Myanmar and a few provinces of central #China.

It’s time for a long-overdue fleet update. It might be worth grabbing a cup of coffee or tea before you start reading this, heh.

Firstly, I have a new car. Since February, I’ve owned this – and I couldn't be happier with it.

#Fiat #Panda
It’s one of 550 Panda Trekking TwinAirs in the UK. It’s effectively a Panda 4x4 without the driven rear axle; instead, it features Fiat’s Traction+ system, which uses the front brakes to emulate a limited-slip differential for additional traction.

Why buy a Trekking, though?
Well, some of you will recall that I spent a lot of time looking at the 4x4 and Cross variants of the Panda last year.

Le saviez-vous ?
D'abord décrit comme membre de la famille des ratons laveurs en 1825 à cause de leur ressemblance, le #PandaRoux a été reclassé dans la famille des ours, comme le #panda géant.

Petit #thread
Des recherches récentes reclasseront ensuite la Panda Roux dans sa propre famille indépendante, les Ailuridés.

Bien qu'appartenant à l'ordre des Carnivores, le Panda Roux a un régime alimentaire omnivore et est essentiellement végétarien.
En effet, il se nourrit essentiellement de bambous, mais mange également des fruits, des oeufs et de petits animaux.

Cette espèce est classée en danger car la population mondiale est estimée à +/- 10 000 individus.

#qanon I need to tell you a bit about the bible... This will require a few deep breaths to consider. Please remember that Q tells us this is bigger than we know. King James wrote two books, not one... The first was called Demonology...
2... This book began the witch trials. A ritual where human adrenochrome was inhaled by villagers in a satanic ritual. Innocent people were exposed to "justice" and more and more fell to the psychotic effects of mind control ...
3 ... They were watching torture described as justice. This is how you break a panda. The trauma bonds the victim into believing anything. They just want to know what's right. They've lost their own gravity. This is a form of mind control. A psychotic mitosis ...

CIA & Panda Diplomacy: The story of Allen Dulles & Chi Chi the Giant #Panda Image
Late 1950s:

US relations with Communist China were virtually nonexistent. US prohibited import of goods originating in or passing through Communist China.

There were rarely any exceptions, even for #pandas.
An animal dealer & a noted animal importer both asked Dulles for help getting @USTreasury permission to bring Chi Chi the giant #panda to US. Several US zoos were interested in giving Chi Chi a home, including the @BronxZoo.
