#Kolonialismus & #Universität. Freue mich sehr, dass ich für "Forschung & Lehre", der Zs. @DHV_Tweet dieses wichtige Thema skizzieren darf. Die Rolle der #Wissenschaft und ihrer Institutionen ist in der Debatte um @coloniallegacy immer noch unterbelichtet. Zeit das zu ändern/2 ImageImage
@DHV_Tweet @coloniallegacy Zwar kamen aus den Universitäten zentrale Impulse zur kritischen Auseinandersetzung mit dem Kolonialismus, die in Verbindung mit zivilgesellschaftlichen Initiativen die Aufarbeitung erzwangen. Ihre eigene Geschichte als Förderin des imperialen Gedankens & der kolonialen Praxis /3
@DHV_Tweet @coloniallegacy als Nutznießerin kolonialer Aneignung und Hort des Kolonialrevisionismus, arbeitete ‚die Wissenschaft‘ dabei weit weniger auf. So bleibt die Universität im Umgang mit dem kolonialen Erbe eine weitgehende Leerstelle, und das trotz ihrer zentralen Rolle. /4

There was another motion by OKers to keep out evidence of a chat log where Meggs told his family members (via group chat) that he was going to "go on a killing spree" around elec. There were Qs about when his son was in chat, when wife was on it, and marital privilege concerns
Ultimately Mehta opted to allow the chat log evidence in.

In 1993 Louise Blouin was one of approximately 200 "Global Leaders of Tomorrow" listed by the World Economic Forum

Oops, it's another #Epstein connection
"Louise Blouin is the sister of Hélène Desmarais, wife of Paul Desmarais Jr. (chairman of the board of directors of Power Corporation) "


"From the jet set to the courts: the setbacks of a wealthy businesswoman"…

"Carlos Slim attended an event hosted by Louise Blouin in New York in September 2011, the Blouin Creative Leadership Summit, where he received an award. "

Thursday's #Coronavirus megathread starts here with the best #Covid19 global analysis and round up available on Twitter.

First a little quiz, answer in the next Tweet:
Do you know which country has had the most recorded cases of Covid19 as a percentage of population?
So I hope there was no cheating... I'll leave some blank lines here too in case some later viewers don't want the answer just yet...
So the nation with more #Covid19 cases than any other based on population is highly vaccinated #Seychelles at more than 20% infected.
Today I spent quite a long time being filmed/interviewed by @bbcturkce about #Covid19 and #Turkey. Not sure how much they will use, let's see.

Coincidentally the cameraman Efe, just happened to be in Kyiv as one of those using Ukraine for a 10 day stop off to avoid hotel prison!

Saturday's #Coronavirus megathread starts here.

Thanks so much for everyone who contributed yesterday, if you have no idea what I'm on about here's another sneaky link to my crowdfunder!

It's a quite start today following the flurry of news last night..…
So a lot of data and a couple of new stories came in during the last hour or so of Friday, including South America data.

You can catch up on #Argentina #Brazil #Colombia #Bulgaria #Norway stats, and some #OlympicGames news by clicking and scrolling ⬇️

Now more very concerning news from #Bahrain, one of the most vaccinated territories on the planet.

#Covid19 cases are still rising there - more worrying is the real increase in deaths too.

Finally, here is Friday's #Coronavirus megathread

🚦review imminent, I'm getting a lot of questions.
I reply to everyone but it's so time consuming
I'm now working on 7-day rates for EVERY Greek island.

No obligation but if my efforts are worth £1, thx…
I'll continue to post free advice and data, so nothing will be hidden from anyone, so please don't be angry or upset! And yes you can still ask questions!

So the big news in UK today is that the single shot Jansen (J&J) #Covid19 vaccine has been approved…
The big #Covid19 data news overnight is that #Argentina smashed its own record again, topping 40,000 cases in a day for the first time.

41,080 new cases to be precise, up around 15% on last week's total.
Another 547 new deaths

‼️#Greek coast guard performed huge illegal #pushback involving 197 people and 7 life rafts on Wednesday! ‼️
A boat carrying 197 people tried to cross from #Turkey to #Italy on Tuesday, but got into bad weather and sat course towards #Crete. Close to the south shore of Crete, they had engine problems and the Greek Coast Guard (HCG) was alerted at 09.00.
#HCG divided the people on two coast guard vessels, 121 men & boys on the first & 76 people (families) on the other. Some of the refugees states they were abused while onboard the HCG vessel. Footage & video testimonies have been provided.

1. I posted a chain of tweets yesterday about Eastern Mediterranean maritime delimitation. Many positive feedbacks suggested me to connect these tweets. It will be a repeat, but I will be posting the thread once again in order.
2. I see many people commenting on the maritime dispute in the Eastern Mediterranean. I wanted to take an adventurous step and draw my own map. Just to clarify, drawing a map is a dangerous move, takes a lot of considerations (courts generally take 3 years to reach a map :)
3- I have devoted my academic career on maritime delimitation. If I know one thing good in life, that is this field. I know the details of all given judgments by heart, have 2 LLM degrees, a PHD candidate, written book and many articles on peer-reviewed journals and given courses

Many yrs ago the Warden of #RhodesHouse said to us. “Cecil Rhodes was a great man. That doesn’t mean that he was a good man.” He was an eminent philosopher. We mulled over the important distinction whereby someone could unleash tremendous events while being morally bankrupt 1/
While Rhodes Scholarship stands today for academic excellence/is open to many developing country students (but still heavily tilted towards Americans whom #Rhodes wanted to woo) the Q remains how to denounce his racist & imperialist legacy while recognising his founding of the 3/
Scholarship. For some time now calls for pulling down his statue quite strident. Will it upend & tear down deep structural mechanisms of exploitation based on colonial era looting & extraction? Likely not. Can we retain recollection of his historical role if we remove statue? 4/
