In April 2018, Great Britain commissioned the German Georg Eckert Institute for International Textbook Research (GEI) to provide an expert opinion on Palestinian textbooks.
The institute then published the so-called “Inception Report”, which represents the preliminary work for a later complete report, but which turned out to be flawed and is full of translation errors.
The EU then joined the investigation, but has now decided to publish its own, already classified interim report and a final report, again with the involvement of the GEI.

The #UKGovernment Torture Report

This is a very short overview of what the #UKAuthorities have done in the case.

In 2005, I set up a business selling CDs, namely mixtape CDs after graduating from Uni.

In 2006, my home was raided & my business was stopped. They said the CDs I was selling were in breach of copyright.
It was a complete shock as the exact same CDs I was selling were prevalent on most high streets and supermarkets. They were selling in their thousands in places such as #Tesco & #HMV. And #Woolworths were the actual UK Distributor of these CDs.

THREAD: #ndrangheta #mobility this week has been all around the news. Before getting caught up by hysteria over this #mafia being everywhere, let's look at the analysis of the facts. First, the 'ndrangheta is NOT one, it can ACT LIKE ONE in Calabria and only when needed.
2/ Unity is in 1) mafia behaviours, 2) family unity, 3) horizontal coordination in "dense" mafia territories. The peculiarity of the 'ndrangheta is that #ethnicity - Calabrianness - matters eormously for the resilience of the organisation, but NOT for criminal activities.
3/ in #Argentina arrests for drug trafficking involved an Italian in Buenos Aires, not Calabrian, an Argentinian of Italian descent, a man from Rosarno linked to the #Bellocco clan - this is business, not ethnicity.…

WHO welcomes the initial clinical trial results from the #UnitedKingdom that show #dexamethasone, a corticosteroid, can be lifesaving for patients who are critically ill with #COVID19 👉
For #COVID19 patients on ventilators, the #dexamethasone treatment was shown to reduce mortality by about one third, and for patients requiring only oxygen, mortality was cut by about one fifth, according to preliminary findings shared with WHO.
The benefit of #dexamethasone was only seen in patients seriously ill with #COVID19, and was not observed in patients with milder disease.

WHO welcomes funding commitments made at today’s #GVS2020, hosted virtually by the #UnitedKingdom government. The Summit is @gavi, the Vaccine Alliance’s third pledging conference and follows the successful Berlin summit in January 2015:
The new pledges will enable @gavi to protect the next generation and reduce disease inequality by reaching an additional 300 million children with vaccines by 2025. #GVS2020 #VaccinesWork
The bold funding commitments mean that the @gavi Alliance will be better able to maintain immunization in lower-income countries, mitigating the impact of the #COVID19 pandemic. They will also help strengthen health systems. #GVS2020 #VaccinesWork

An explosive secret document exposes the machinations of the Chinese government.
Beijing lied to the world about the corona virus!
This emerges from a 15-page secret service document, as reported by the newspaper "The Daily Telegraph"…. The dossier thus shows that the government has covered up the Corona outbreak - with devastating global pandemic consequences.
The author of the document is the so-called "Five Eyes": an alliance of leading intelligence agencies from the #UnitedStates, the #UnitedKingdom, #Canada, #Australia and #NewZealand.

Brief thread: the politics of #death

I was asked on webinar today whether NYS reclassifying 3,778 deaths as #Covid19 was done for political reasons: to garner sympathy or get more funding. In short, I think it is political, but not for those reasons. 1/x…
This is not a left/right, Democrat/GOP, or Liberal/Conservative issue. Counting deaths should be fully based on science. In Spain, right now, it is the right-wing #Vox party that is attacking the government for covering up deaths. 2/x…
As a country, France was one of the earliest (nations) to begin to capture the many deaths that had occured without having been tested. They have continued to do so: their 10+% cCFR reflects that. 3/x…

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/

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

More hard proof that the #RoyalFamily is going down solely because of white hats and @POTUS. This is a direct snub. #EnjoyTheShow 😎 @realDonaldTrump is the breaker of monarchies. How f’n cool is this!
Don’t forget Prince Charles was best friends with notorious serial child rapist #JimmySavile and almost named him #Harry’s Godfather! Who’s best friends with someone who raped 3,000+ children? Wake TF up people!
