The #Crop #Diversity #Experiment funded by @snf_ch can show first results available on @biorxivpreprint. First year results from #Switzerland show 21% and 44% increases in yield in 2- and 4-species #mixtures, respectively. Yield benefits in Spain were 3% and 13%. (1/5)
In a first study we can show that these yield benefits of #intercropping are not due to reduced #weed pressure. Weed abundance was related to crop yield, but not affected by crop #richness, but rather by the presence of #cereals (2/)
biorxiv.org/content/10.110… @LStefan_AgroEco (2/5)
A second study shows that increased crop yield in mixtures is both related to positive #sampling effects of tall species and positive #complementarity effects through more efficient #nitrogen use

Thread: Wearing masks is our best defense against the #coronavirus.

@WhiteHouse press secretary said today that masks are no longer required in West Wing. Many tweets also advise against masks.

Result: Colossal failure of the US #COVID response.

An example of anti-mask rhetoric can be seen in the video below by a Mr. Huff. I will explain why everything that he says here is scientifically incorrect and a danger to public health. (I do not know Mr. Huff or his motivations.)

I am not comparing the US to the several dozen countries that have mostly controlled this epidemic, e.g., #Taiwan, #Iceland, #SouthKorea, #Japan, #Thailand, #NewZealand, #Australia, #Austria, #Switzerland, #Greece, #Norway, etc. Some of them never even had to lock down.

Last Thursday my German review of “The World’s of J.R.R. #Tolkien” by @JohnGarthWriter was published by the @GermanTolkSoc Since an English version won’t be published soon, I decided to write a looong thread here to tell you what I think about it. (1/20) tolkiengesellschaft.de/34447/rezensio…
(Please consider that I am a non-native speaker of English and also dyslexic, so no mean comments about grammar please! #MiddleEarth is spelled incorrectly on purpose!) (2/20) #Tolkien
I don’t want to talk much about the contents. John has posted a video some weeks ago in which he shows what’s included and I haven’t anything to add. John presents theories by both other #Tolkien scholars and himself, he actually refutes some very popular ideas as baseless (3/20)

This is the subject of my recent arguments against a certain retired judge, who said that the death penalty would scare off would-be criminals. I retorted that it was a lazy way of thinking about & looking into criminality. I will try to recall those arguments here.
2/10
Capital punishment has not been a deterrent to crime, whose root causes are in poverty, economic inequities, poor health care, inadequate public services, corrupt govt & justice system, bad educational system, poor human-rights record, & other unfreedoms as as understood
3/10
in political philosophy. Rich countries with excellent health care, high employment rate, topnotch educational system, least red tape, competent & honest govt officials, efficient public services & transport system, & good records of human-rights and press-freedom

Thread: Predicting #COVID deaths in the US from 8k to 100k.

I started predicting the US COVID death toll ~2 months ago. All of my predictions to date have proven accurate. The most painful predictions I have ever made.

Why have we failed to stop the #coronavirus in the US?

1/
My first prediction on Apr 4 (toll @ 8k) was for the Easter Sunday (20k):

In my Apr 12 thread (toll @ 20k), I explained the fundamental systems concepts for the #coronavirus epidemic:

Cases of #pillage by corporate actors investigated and brought to justice are rare.

Very rare.

Still, TRIAL International in recent years has submitted no less than 4 such criminal cases to the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) of #Switzerland.
1/
The first complaint concerned the role played by #Argor-Heraeus in refining several tonnes of gold illegally extracted from the #DRC.
The OAG decided in 2015 to close it down.
Not being a civil party, TRIAL was unable to appeal the decision.
trialinternational.org/latest-post/sw…
2/
The second case, filed in 2016, concerns a Swiss businessman, Christoph Huber, currently under (very slow) investigation by the OAG for his role in the #looting of raw materials in the #DRC.

Pure theory…
How does NWO control?

►NK nukes controlled China. Seems they are hostages too.

►Ukraine setting up to control Russia. Nice proximity.

►Iran, Israel ... Middle East.

Order is important.
Any other rogue nuclear states?

Yeah, Switzerland. BINGO!

Did Military Coup d'état topple another NWO stronghold?

Weird b/c COVID19 isn't an American problem.
Means something else, IMO.

Dan Scavino tweeted it yesterday.

The Matterhorn is a mountain of the Alps, straddling the main watershed and border between Switzerland and Italy.
I trust my followers know about CERN.

Switzerland, NWO headquarters, according to many.

IMO, Israel is merely a branch office to keep American weaponry in control of the oil-rich Middle East.

Cool theory...

#Germany has been able to become a great exporting power, among other things, thanks to bribes, a practice so common for its large companies that until a few years ago they could even be deducted from taxes.
Only its giant Siemens has been discovered irregular operations worth about 420,000 million euros. Volkswagen has tricked millions of customers with the diesel engine scandal;
Many large German companies such as Deutsche Bank, Vodafone, Deutsche Telekom or Deutsche Pos, among others, have also led to major scandals and the biggest tax fraud in European history, the Cum-Ex case, was organized in Germany.

It is time for one long #Coronavirus update. I have been resisting doing this as (1) I do not want to add to the hysteria & the panic & (2) I don't believe in doomsday predictions. Moreover, things have been moving so fast, who knows what's what. BUT it's time for real talk...
Overall, #Coronavirus (the outbreak of #COVID19) is REAL. The effects on your daily life from the fallout will be REAL. The impact society, economics, & politics in 2020 will be severe & REAL. None of this is Fake News. None of this should be downplayed. (2/
People who are trying to silence REAL discussion are doing a disservice to the public interest. This is a 9/11 & 2008 level event in terms of its impact on domestic & international dynamics. This thread is not about creating panic but encouraging a smarter response. (3/

Det är svårt att föreställa sig om det som sker i Kina. Uppenbarligen samlar de in dissidenter. All internet trafik är spärrad utom de källor som kommer via den kinesiska staten. Det som pågår i Kina angående #Coronavirus är en krigshandling av främmande makt.
Det här viruset är
gjord av människan. Ryssland, Indien, Taiwan vet att viruset innehåller HIV.

Därmed är skiten tillverkad av människan. Det sägs att den slår hårdare mot kinesiska män än mot andra raser, vilket betyder att denna "attack" kommer ej från deras egna led.

Fortsättning följer.

There are 4⃣ type of #BREAKOUTS

1⃣Breakout without any retest
2⃣Breakout with a re-test
3⃣Breakout with a hard re-test
4⃣Failed breakout

Following tweets explain each one of those with examples from recent breakout alerts
1⃣ Breakout without any retest

If you have a stop-loss placed below the chart pattern boundary, this is the easiest to trade. Following the breakout your stop-loss will no be challenged and price target will be met.

#BAES #FTSE #UK
2⃣ Breakout with a re-test

If you have a stop-loss placed below the chart pattern boundary, this type of trade may test your patience but still will not challenge your protective stop-loss. Chart pattern boundary will even offer a new entry opportunity.

Going through the numbers released by @WHO (in turn are numbers released by China) from Jan 20th to Jan 27th.

Based on the released numbers, I did a simple analysis on the day-by-day increase in # of confirmed cases and # of dead owing to #coronavirus Image
The findings:(day2day)

1. The # of infected ⬆️ by an average factor of 1.49 ⬇️ to 1.4 *

2. The # of dead ⬆️ by an average factor of 1.68 ⬇️ to 1.6 *

3. The Death:Infected ratio is currently around 2.7 (# of deaths/100 infections)

* ⬇️ owing to conservative estimates + factors
Based on above trends:

1. The # of infected & the # of dead may reach a significant figure as early as Feb 6th *

2. The "Death:Infected Ratio" may ⬆️ sharply after Feb 2nd *

* Not posting my numbers here.

3. #nCoV is faster in it's infection rates compared to #SARS

Great read in @nytimes by @NathanielRich, focusing on the decisive decade when humankind first came to a broad understanding of the causes and dangers of #climatechange.

"More carbon has been released into the atmosphere since the final day of the #Noordwijk conference, Nov. 7, 1989, than in the entire history of civilization preceding it."
"By the end of the 21st century, scientists predict that Switzerland could face a temperature increase of five degrees Fahrenheit because of climate change; by then, a majority of central #Switzerland’s glaciers will have disappeared."
