Skyrocketing #global #foodprices, panicked low income and poorer fringes of the population facing severe #hardship, struggling #emergingmarkets and #SriLanka on the verge of #anarchy - all wrapped up in a massive #market sell-off: what is happening 🌎 ❓
Things did not improve in April on #food prices:
the #FAO Food Price Index fell 0.8% month-over-month to 158.5 points in April 2022, but still remained close to the all-time high of 159.7 points in March.
#vegetableoil prices declined significantly (-5.7%) after hitting an all-time high in March under pressure from #palm, #sunflower and #soybean #oils.

In addition, #grain prices fell slightly (-0.4%), after also rising to all-time highs in March.

Finally, the #GoldacreReview is published! (During Parliamentary Easter holidays, mid-ping-pong on the #HealthAndCareBill...)

It's 221 pages - each PDF page is a double page spread - so this could be a lo-o-o-ong [Thread].

Here goes...
First point to note, in the Terms of Reference (p5), is that this is about "access to #NHSdata by #researchers, #commissioners, and #innovators" - i.e. #Planning and #CommercialReUse - so it is directly relevant to the operation of millions of people's #NationalDataOptOuts...

"systems that ensure #underrepresented groups are well represented" may (partly) refer to this "landmark review", which got off to a slow start:

27. RADIXers, for the last time this is @akgungor_c. So, when a disaster happens, society looks for #leadership and an efficient #response. While issues related to #crisismanagement & response usually seem to be the primary reason for public outrage in the first moments,
28...it doesn’t take long for a louder contestation to emerge, this one being about causes and responsibilities: How it happened; why it happened;
what could have been done in order to prevent it, and, if it wasn’t prevented, then who is responsible?
29. Clearly, #catastrophe is a legitimacy test for the political elite, as it is for the public administration. Leaders certainly prefer avoiding such debates about their presumed irresponsibility, indifference, or lethargy but for many others, starting with victims & journalists

9. Hello again, @akgungor_c continues from where he has left :) So, I tend to think of #disasters as systemic “radiographs”. I’m not sure when I first came up with this analogy but I usually associate this idea with my own experience as a search & rescue volunteer.
10. After all, looking around in a disaster-stricken zone, few people don't come to reflect on their own #vulnerability first, then, gradually, about the vulnerability of human societies to massive #disruptions.
11. The greater the impact, the thinner seems the protective bubble provided by our physical and social systems.

1/ Continuons notre série "où est passé l'argent de la recherche" avec les études du #SARS_CoV_2 dans les #eaux usées.

Sur le principe, pourquoi pas ?

C'est assez robuste pour y retrouver les #drogues. En France, ces travaux du @CNRS étaient dans @libe

2/ Le soucis est qu'un #virus c'est pas une molécule.

La bonne nouvelle a été que l'on peut détecter le #SARS_CoV_2 dans les eaux usées !

La moins bonne a été qu'il était difficile de savoir quoi en faire...

Car savoir qu'un virus pandémique circule aide peu.
3/ Au niveau du #dépistage, à peu près aucune étude sur les #eaux usées n'a regardé la #sensibilité ou #spécificité de la méthode.

Quelle variabilité pour un même échantillon ?

EXCLUSIVE: First Hand Accounts Allege Officer #BrianSicknick Was Denied Critical Treatment By Police

One witness helped another offered life saving care

Two shocking eye-witness accounts corroborate something worse than we could have ever imagined. The @CapitolPolice appear to not only be responsible for the #death of multiple #protesters (which they lied about) but also for the #death of a fellow officer, #BrianSicknick.

@C0PE 1. A crucial #COVID19 paper (tinyurl.com/bp8m326t) with simple #solution that does not have any #vested interest is #retracted seven months after publication in a #PeerReviewed journal @SpringerNature where there could be #conflictofinterest @RetractionWatch.
@C0PE @SpringerNature @RetractionWatch 2.Retraction was initiated by an #influential scientist who doesn't have any research on #COVID. If s/he had co-authored papers with author in other areas, will there not be #ConflictofInterest?
Can it not be verified/disclosed? Who will check if there is #fairness of intention?
@C0PE @SpringerNature @RetractionWatch 3) There was no open #public #debate allowed before retraction. Then how #transparency is maintained and how the right of the author is protected? A negative review can be written for any paper and a paper rejected in one journal can also be published in another journal.

A quick sample of initial reactions...

We're clearly going to be hearing a lot about #LegitimateInterests, as well as #commercial and #public ones. The real question being, how do this Government's interests actually align with YOURS?

140+ pages on a Friday is a lot to digest, but @lilianedwards' "penumbra of often futile determinedly populist ideas largely not evidence-based" seems entirely consistent with @DCMS's Drunkard's Walk through #data and #ID this past year...

Excited to share our new work on the #pandemic's effect on demand for #public #schools, #homeschooling and #private schools. @kevin_stange @JoshuaSGoodman @abacherhicks

This work resonates personally with me-as it should for anyone attached to the K-12 public school system.🧵
We know, and many of us experienced, how the #Covid_19 pandemic drastically disrupted the functioning of U.S. public schools. But how much, and for whom, did this change the relative appeal of alternatives such as homeschooling and private schools?
We use state administrative data from #Michigan and national data from the Household Pulse Survey to build a consistent picture. 4 main facts emerge.

Just a quick thread on #evidence and #public #health interventions in the context of #COVID19. Some have suggested that common interventions, such as #masking, require a #randomized #controlled #trial before asking people, particularly #children to do this. 1/
To mask or not to mask, that is the question. Wait, I think we need more information, we should conduct an RCT before answering that query. Well...it depends. 2/
There is a trade-off here: what is the benefit collecting more evidence vs. the benefit of making a decision now with the information you have in hand? 3/

@transportgovuk (3/6) The High Court ruling was not made about the merits of the #Stonehenge #tunnel #scheme itself – but concerned points of law in the way in which the decision was made to grant permission

- Over the past few years, the #government has proposed to #amend several #environmental #laws and create entirely #new ones.
- The government has also proposed very large #industrial and #developmental projects which would effectively ruin the environment of the areas. [1/10]

This project would drown almost the entirety of the #PannaNationalPark, a richly biodiverse national park, hosting tigers, leopards, and even critically-endangered #vultures.

The #Covid19 pandemic led to a sharp tightening of global #financial conditions at the acute phase of the crisis and has inflicted large economic losses across the world (see Figure below) ... 3/n Image
