#Neoliberalism at work: Why work for structural reform when you can donate a dollar on top of your $25 steak and $15 bottle of kombucha?

Let’s take a minute to actually break down the #WholeFoods variety of neoliberal #capitalism & the illusion of consumption ending #poverty.
Here in the US #WholeFoods & gentrification go together like peanut butter & jelly.
Gentrification effectively prices anyone below a certain income level out of a neighborhood, by jacking up rents & the price on consumer goods & services.
#WholeFoods is the poster child for this, with their ridiculously inflated prices on staple foods, but they take it to another level. This self-important emporium of yuppie chow isn’t just selling you overpriced organic cruelty free bean sprouts. They’re selling you an image.

Tras pasar por Barcelona, y cerrando vacaciones, es buen momento para recuperar el informe que publicamos sobre #efectoAirbnb en Barcelona cuando empezaba este verano
Este es el informe de Airbnb en Barcelona (2015-2019) hecho con datos de @InsideAirbnb a partir del taller de @montera34
Puedes ver, por ejemplo, la desigual concentración por barrios de anuncios de Airbnb en relación a las viviendas existentes #Barcelona #efectoAirbnb…

Da ich in den heißen drei Wochen vor der #ltwSachsen “leider” im Urlaub bin und ich von dort aus keinen aktiven Wahlkampf betreiben kann, habe ich eine Beitragsreihe namens “Warum man die #AfD *inhaltlich* nicht wählen sollte” vorbereitet.
Warum diese Beitragsreihe? Ich stürze mich bewusst nicht auf die zahllosen (rechts-) populistischen, grenzwertigen oder gar rassistischen Aussagen von #AfD|lern. Denn den Gefallen werde ich der #noAfD nicht erweisen, mit bewussten Provokationen Reichweite zu erzielen.
Stattdessen zerlege ich das #AfD Wahlprogramm - oder, wie die #noAfD es nennt: "Regierungsprogramm" (hoffentlich ja nicht):…

في هذه السلسة سأذكر تجربتي مع استخدام #airbnb من 2012 للآن، ولا أدعي الخبرة لكن لي تجربة معهم عبر 7 سنوات وأكثر من 50 زيارة موفقة بحمدالله. وربما يستفيد منها البعض أو تكون ذات فائدة لمن يطلع عليها.
وفي نظري استخدامه يلزم قواعد وأدبيات يلزم اتباعها عند الحجز والاختيار...
لضمان تجربة سكن جيدة ومن تجربتي هي :
- الحرص على اختيار ماتحتاج من مكان وخصائص السكن والسعر المناسب لك ولما يقدم من مميزات باستخدام الفلاتر المخصصة. وليس بالضرورة وجود علامة مضيف مميز superhost
-تجنب العروض الجديدة واحرص على وجود تقييمات عالية وتحتوي على شرح عن المضيف/المكان/ الأثاث وكفاءة الخدمة/صحة الصور المعروضة/ القرب من المواصلات العامة/وجود موقف آمن ومجاني في حال وجود سيارة/وضوح عملية وصولك و الدخول الذاتي للمكان.

Zu viel Macht Einzelner, zu wenig Transparenz bei der Arbeit vieler Lobbygruppen, zu einseitige Einflussnahme bis hin zur gekauften Politik. Empfehlenswertes #Lobbyismus Dossier der Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung @bpb_de:…

Last night, a group of friends and I reserved an Airbnb in NYC, and encountered a racist and rude host.

When we arrived to our @Airbnb, we were harassed several times before being thrown out at 2 am. Her reasonings were because she felt unsafe, she assumed we were going to
steal and destroy her property. After being harassed by her nonstop, she then told us to “Get the fuck out of her house immediately!” We cooperated and began to pack our things to leave.

As we were packing, she burst in the door with a camera.
We asked her to at least respect our privacy while packing since someone had just gotten out of the shower. She yells “No, it’s my house. Get the fuck out! You are all criminals! I don’t feel safe in my home!” She later asked us “Which monkey is sleeping on the couch?”

I've had terrible experiences with @Airbnb.

I guess it shouldn't come as a surprise considering this is the company that blacklists Israel but loves Iran, China, Russia, and Venezuela
For crappy @airbnb, Israel is evil, but Iran is cool.
First time I tried @airbnb, I couldn't stay at my rented house because my host literally gave me the wrong direction. Not a pleasant experience going to the wrong address at 2 AM after a plane flight.

When I asked for a refund he refused and he left me a bad review.

💪A thread on amazing Twitter threads 😍👇
In the process of revamping my #Twitter profile (dormant earlier), I have come to appreciate the wonderful underutilized platform it is!
Some threads contain crisp knowledge capsules that can help many. Starting 1 on such curated content
1. I largely rely on this: to find content
2. What I wish to share is what coincides largely with my interests- #Learning, #Investing, #Behavioralpsychology (#mentalmodels, #bias, etc), #Businessbooks, Industry insights/case studies, Life experiences, etc
While it will be difficult to structure the order of content here, I will try to block threads by category (as noted above & more). Feel free to comment with any good thread that you would have come across. Cumulative learning always helps.
