JUST IN: #BNNJapan Reports.

On Friday, Tokyo prosecutors searched the headquarters of ad agency Dentsu Inc and an events company on suspicion of rigging bids for Tokyo Olympics test events, according to reports. #Japan #Tokyo #Crime
The move adds to the growing scandal surrounding the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, which also saw Dentsu Inc offices raided earlier this year.
Haruyuki Takahashi, a former executive for Dentsu Inc. and a member of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics board, was detained in August in connection with that scandal on suspicion of accepting bribes from Olympic sponsors.

🚀 We are live! Here is the correct streaming link for all of today's discussions and performances, starting with a panel on complex time with David Krakauer, James Gleick, Ted Chiang, and David Wolpert in a few moments (measured linearly...):

#IPFest
"One of the ideas we had with #InterPlanetary was, 'What would it take to make science hedonistic? And instead of telling people to do it, you'd have to tell people to STOP doing it?"

- SFI President David Krakauer sets the tone for this weekend's celebrations
#IPFest Image
David Krakauer: "Do you have a favorite model or metaphor for #time?"

@JamesGleick: "You've already mentioned a river; that's everybody's favorite. Borges said time is a tiger. People talk about it as a thread. We ONLY talk about time in metaphors." Image

What's missing from these pictures?

No on-street parking makes all the difference in the cities of #Japan. The 1962 "proof-of-parking" law means you buy a car, you've got to show you've got a place—off public streets—to warehouse it.

🧵 ImageImage
In the three #Tokyo neighborhoods I spent time in over a decade, the streets were refreshingly free of on-street parked cars—certainly compared to North America. Image
The parking laws lead to some interesting arrangements; cars squeezed into tiny garages (how do you open the door to get out?); car elevators; multi-storey lots where cars are stacked like battery hens. ImageImageImage

After months of waiting, I finally got into @OpenAI's DALL-E.

I am trying to work within some consistent themes to learn more about how she thinks.

In 2002, architect #ChristopherAlexander published the first volume of his magnum opus, "#TheNatureOfOrder." It is a book that endeavors to answer the question: what is #aliveness, and how can cultivate it in our #BuiltEnvironment?
Here's the review on the dust jacket: "Five hundred years is a long time, and I don't expect that many of the people I interview will be known in the year 2500. Alexander may be an exception." - David Creeman
Alexander begins by asking the question, why is contemporary architecture so terrible? "In the 20th century we have passed through a unique period, one in which architecture as a discipline has been in a state that is almost unimaginably bad."

Can a lip-smacking chicken #curry be used as a tool for #revolution? Believe it or not but Rash Behari Bose, an #Indian revolutionary, did just that while on the run in #Tokyo. Bose was born #OnThisDay in 1886. 1/8

During the early 20th century, the #British in #India were feeling the heat as there was an upsurge in revolutionary activities during India's #freedomstruggle. A revolutionary from #Bengal, Bose played an important part in the movement. 2/8
He was involved in the assassination attempt on Lord Hardinge in 1912 and the failed Ghadar Mutiny of 1915. He escaped to #Japan and lived there under an assumed name and identity. 3/8

What it’s like for the lucky spectators who can get a ticket for the #Beijing2022 Winter Olympics. I’ll take you in... bbc.co.uk/news/world-asi…
If you have a read of this piece I hope you get a sense of how cool and nice the #Beijing2020 Olympic volunteers are, as with the spectators I met. Such a pity these Games & #Tokyo last year had to be held in a time of Rona and that more people couldn’t participate. #China

🗺What is the history of the Stock Market?
💱How did trading originate?
📈What are some of the key events of the Stock Market?
We explore the entire timeline of finance and trading leading up to the present day via this series of tweets.

#StockMarketOrigins Image
The 1300s
Venetian moneylenders began to sell debt issues to other lenders and to individual investors; and traded in government securities. They carried slates with information on the various issues for sale & meet with clients, much like a broker does today.
#StockMarketOrigins
The late 1400s
Belgium (then, Antwerp), became the centre of international trade. Merchants would bring in goods anticipating that prices would rise and earn them a profit. #Bondtrading also occurred during this period.

From green spaces to sustainable living, here's how we can make the most of our precious time. timeout.com/things-to-do/c…
We don’t want to point the finger, but cities have a lot to answer for when it comes to #climate change.
If we are to go some way to undoing the damage humans have inflicted on the world, then real change is going to have to happen in massive cities like #London, #Tokyo, #NewYork and all the rest.

According to specialists in Denmark,
the #energycrisis causes #fertilizer plants to shut down worldwide.

This could trigger a #food crisis,
at least for those who cannot afford to pay the 4-fold price for fertilizer...
(they expect it to happen in 2022)
nyheder.tv2.dk/samfund/2021-1… Image
Meanwhile,
already in India
DAP (Diammonium Phosphate #fertilizer) is becoming scarce.
Farmers need it now, to start sowing in time.
The main ingredients would come from China... but not this year.
"50% of the world´s food relies on #fertilisers"
🤷
(note: rice isn´t mentioned here, as it´s an interview with an expert from Norway.
In fact, conventional rice production consumes loads of chemicals, too)

🚨The exciting part of the year for Japanese politics is rapidly approaching: with the race for the leadership of the LDP upon us, the general election for the Lower House is getting closer and closer.📆

Reports say that it could take place by Mid-October! Thus, this project:➕ Image
I would like to make a rundown on the 289 Single-Member Districts that compose part of the Lower House of the Japanese Diet.

Let's see the conditions of each district, the candidates & how the Japanese media & history see the race. Join me and follow along! In for a long ride🎢
Yes. I'm THAT crazy. LOL

All in with the 289 districts. Let's do it for fun and in order to learn more (myself included) about JP politics.

Please don't hesitate to add info, point out mistakes or anything you want! #JapanPolitics

She was already the GOAT, so we need to invent a new term. I’m still trying to acquire the wisdom @Simone_Biles has at her age.

You can’t help anyone (friend, child, partner, country) without first taking care of yourself.

The Olympics is not war. #SimonBiles
You’re a legend for many reasons, @Simone_Biles.

The strength it takes for women (especially young, and especially from underrepresented and marginalized communities) to love and value ourselves enough to say “This is my limit”: radical & beautiful.

Definition of role-model.

THREAD 📌#Paralympics

So I just read this awful piece and was reminded that some #disabled folks are not interested in making the world more equitable for all of us. Roy Perkins has decided that Becca Meyers just isn't that #disabled. Wrong.
1/

swimmingworldmagazine.com/news/paralympi…
According to Perkins, who is a swimmer, not a doctor, and not blind nor Deaf, Meyers isn't THAT blind or THAT Deaf and thus doesn't need a personal care assistant like she has always had before. The IOC has restricted them due to COVID, which penalizes some disabled athletes.
2/
Perkins' argument is an ableist one: if other #disabled people have suffered in silence before, why can't Meyers? And, Perkins asserts, others are more #disabled than Meyers. This is the kind of terrible #ableism that has restricted the lives of #disabled people for centuries.
