The Whale is an appalling example of ableist pity porn. Crip theorists have written extensively about a pervasive double-bind used to oppress disabled people: the victim-hero dualism. 1/8
Either you’re a tragic figure or a heroic overcomer. If the former, then nondisabled people can pity & paternalistically ‘help’ you, making themselves feel saintly & superior. 2/8
If the latter, then disabled people can see you as a victim of a terrible impairment that you overcame in a life-defining way. They can applaud you while using you to shame other disabled people - the sad victims of disability who didn’t rise to the challenge. 3/8

(1/16) Today again a more theoretical thread about #Germanic #history. It is about a theory of the origin of the first Germanic major #tribes:
the #Iron and #Amber theory!

(Many used images are from external sources, which I will gladly share if needed.) ImageImage
(2/16) But let's start from the beginning. What is a #Germanic "major #tribe" anyway?
Around the year 0, hundreds of small #tribes lived in #Germania. About 400 years later, however, they were seemingly replaced by a few large tribes, such as the #Goths, #Franks, or #Alemanni. Image
(3/16) #Researchers therefore asked themselves early on how this development had come about. It was usually assumed that #Germanic #tribes living near the #borders of the #Roman #Empire formed #raiding parties, in order to be able to undertake more successful #raids. ImageImage

"All living things experience an increase in #entropy, manifested as a loss of #genetic and #epigenetic information."…
2/5 "In #yeast, #epigenetic information is lost over time due to the relocalization of #chromatin-modifying proteins to #DNA breaks, causing cells to lose their identity, a hallmark of yeast #aging."

Our new paper @PNASNews is addressing a long-standing question in #ecology, #biodiversity sciences and #conservation biology:
How do multiple #species #coexist in fragmented landscapes?

A 🧵on multispecies coexistence:… (1/7) Image
2/7 Spatially #fragmented #landscapes are very common, both naturally & through human activities.

In such landscapes, a combination of local survival and #colonization of empty habitat patches is key to species' regional persistence. Image
3/7 However, ecological #theory on species coexistence has so far largely focused on local communities.

By integrating #coexistence theory and #metacommunity theory, we propose a mathematical framework to understand multiple species' coexistence in fragmented landscapes. Image

1/ What is Swix #DAO's potential? A napkin math 🧵
2/ In #crypto, part of the bull #theory for many is reduced to how big the market cap is at the moment.
Many dismiss fundamentals, and go on to “invest” just based on the inflated market cap of a token without liquidity, which usually doesn't end well.
3/ In Swix DAO, we want to do the opposite, instead of relying on hype alone, we want to rely on solid ground and real life revenues, on top of the hype that any good crypto project legitimately enjoys.

G20 Implementing policies that leverage DLT⏬

My theory with examples of how it can relate to
First of all, shout out to the writers as this was well written on global DLT @KingsCollegeLon

If you are into global law, regulated DLT, and G20 topics, this is a technical one to review as it has lots of good thoughts.…

#DLT #Blockchain #crypto #G20

The G20 is uniquely placed to implement policies that leverage the benefits of cryptocurrencies, in particular, DLT for faster and more efficient transactions process.

Skypiea Arc Analysis

Skypiea Tells Us (Almost) Everything

#ONEPIECE #Analysis #Theory Image
Apologise for taking ages to get around to this. Irl has been getting in the way & motivations were low. I've finally got time & motivation, so let's get into it.

This idea first occurred to me when looking back at Skypiea and investigating it for details on the Wano theory.
I've since been discussing the relevance of Skypiea with many different people & I have ended up forming the view that Skypiea is perhaps the most important arc of all, secretly telling us almost all the key information needed to solve the main puzzle of the story, True History. Image

The Motives & Mysteries of Mihawk

Despite being one of the earliest antagonists to be introduced in the story, Mihawk remains one of the most illusive characters when it comes to details being revealed about him.

Oda seems to intentionally avoid giving explicit information on Mihawk
So if there is very limited explicit information to go on, what can we learn from the implicit clues?

The following analysis will discuss all the things that may give us clues to the motives & mysteries of Mihawk.

The Curse of the Holy Land

This idea came to me whilst I was discussing the foreshadowing that can be found in Skypiea.

Looking back at Noland's flashback, the subject of the Shandorian's sacrifices to god stands out as something that seems like it may have deeper significance.
For 400 years after the destruction of Shandora at the end of the Void Century, the people of Shandora had believed that any misfortune that befell them was a curse from God.

The only way to prevent divine judgement was to make ritual human sacrifices at the alter of god.

The One Piece & The Country of Gold

This theory stems from the revelations in 1040's official Viz translations. Big Mom stated that she believes that part of the One Piece is in Wano.
I think it's fair to say that this was everyone's first reaction lol

Zunisha's Crime

Warning, this thread will contain spoiled from 1040. If you are an official release only reader, I recommend saving this for Sunday.

Let's get in to it.
Ever since chapter 821, we have learned that Zunisha once committed a crime and has since been charged to walk the earth for eternity as punishment.

For a long time we have wondered what this crime could have been.

Vegapunk's Next Experiment -

Big Mom & The Artificial Giants

We first learned of the World Government's attemps to make artificial giants in Punk Hazard.

It was there that Ceaser was illegally and secretly continuing the research that he had begun with Vegapunk.
Ceaser had been kicked off the original team by Vegapunk because of his unethical methods in using the chemical HS2. As a retaliation, Ceaser caused the explosion that destroyed the original lab. Although Ceaser blamed Vegapunk for it.

The Significance of King's Tattoo

#ONEPIECE #Theory Image
The best way to find out this significance of King's tattoo is to look at what the reference might be and what it might represent.

Many have already noticed, from when we got the first glimpse of it, that it looks similar to a Laurel Wreathe. Image
This has already been pointed out by people like, @Peronas_Ghost, who theorised that King may have an association with Emperor Nero.

Vegapunk and Blackbeard

#ONEPIECE #Theory Image
This is actually one of my oldest theories, and in fact the theory that I started my channel on.

This goes way back to before I even knew how to do threads properly.

I've changed some aspects of it, but let's get into it Image
Let's begin with one of the things we're all aware of, Blackbeard's 'abnormality', and attempt to explain it.

As Marco said at Marineford, it seems to be this, 'abnormality', that allows him to eat more than one Devil Fruit without dying. Image

The True History

#ONEPIECE #Theory Image
We first learned about, 'The True History' at the end of Alabasta. When, Robin joins the crew, she flashes back to her conversation with, Cobra. He asks why she lied to, Crocodile & she revealed that she was searching for this, 'True History.' Image
The next thing we learned of the True History, was the existence of the lost ancient city of, Shandora.

Hidden in the clouds for 400 years, the 'Golden City' of Shandora had thought to be lost.

Robin found it, 'in the skull's right eye.' Image

The Certain Pirate

Ever since Shanks surprised us all by appearing in front of the Gorosei, we have wondered at his motives for doing so. Some even believe now that Shanks is evil.

The biggest potential clue we have, is Shanks' mention of a, 'certain pirate'.

But who could this be?
There are quite a few possibilities as to who this 'certain pirate' could be, so the best way to determine who it most likely is, is to consider all of the potential candidates.

So, let's start with the seemingly most obvious candidate -
