Not endorsing what she said on @FoxNews @TuckerCarlson about Sharia Law in America, but there're reasonable questions on @JoeBiden's embrace of political Islam by participating in an event on July 20th sponsored by @EmgageAction, a partner organization of @CAIRNational
(2-18)

@CAIRNational was co-founded by known Hamas sympathizer, @NihadAwad. There is a great deal of info on CAIR’s ties/links to extremist and terrorist groups.

Also, @JoeBiden further embraced political Islamists narratives by quoting the Hadith "Whoever among you sees a wrong, let him change it with his hand. If he is not able, then with his tongue. If he is not able, then with his heart.”

Most of you know that wages in the United States have remained stagnant since 1980, when adjusted for inflation. Do you realize, however, that the US is a global #empire and that we are likely witnessing the fall of that empire?

That's right, the US has political or... 1/16
#military control of much of the world. That comes from military support of dictatorships and right wing leaders throughout Central and South America, throughout #Africa and in parts of #Asia, such as India and the Philippines. But that also includes economic control, and... 2/16
economically, we also have a huge amount of control (although not total) over most of #Europe and some of the countries in Asia where we don't have political/military control.

I've spent this morning on a number of calls and webinars discussing the #global #restaurant market and the outlook for 2020 and beyond. I thought I'd collect some thoughts on where we @Technomic see the business going.
1/
First, in North America: our midpoint scenario analysis for US #restaurants is a decline in consumer spending of 22% in 2020. Canada's outlook is a bit worse, with our midpoint expectations at -26% decline. #Delivery and #takeout has been key for operators in these markets.
2/
Latin America will be harder hit than N America; lockdowns have been significant and economies are generally weaker to begin with. We forecast the midpoint decline for #restaurants in Argentina, Colombia, Brazil, Chile and Mexico will be down ~40% in spending in 2020.

Truly fascinating story linking #tech & #geopolitics, and involving #Gulf. #Google sponsors new undersea fiber optic cable connecting #Europe & #Asia, specifically #Italy & #India, via the #ArabianPeninsula. Should cut costs by 50% & really increase efficiency. Few details 👇 1/
The cable will be split in 2. Blue goes from #Italy to #Jordan (Aqaba) via #Israel and is done w/Telecom Italia. Raman goes from #India to Aqaba via #Oman & #SaudiArabia and done w/Omantel. The split is due to Saudi opposition of direct link to Israel (normalization, much?). 2/
The Blue-Raman cable will be the first connecting #Europe & #Asia to bypass #Egypt. All other cables do and in fact Egypt charges massively for access while also being the "biggest single-point-of-failure in the entire world." 3/

"Country X has been lucky." "Nation Y has low population density." "Climate in tropical state Z has an impact."

Probably true, but then still:
#leadership
#strategy
#trust
#communications

massively influence a country's dealing with a #pandemic or a #crisis.

1/
Would countries have done better or worse with different #leadership and #strategy? I have NO DOUBT.

Key drivers like #leadership and #trust often seem underestimated or hard to grasp.

This is probably due to #complexity of the matter and that drivers are hard to measure.

2/
The drivers are all related:

#leadership ➡️ trust ➡️ successful execution of #strategy ➡️ empowered leadership ➡️ #trust

#Communications is the glue.

Article from April 19:
China steps up governance of South China Sea
www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/ne…

While the world suffers from #COVID19 which originates in #Wuhan - #China, this is what #CCP is doing.

ASEAN is expected to fight back, yet CCP puppet, Cambodia's Hun Sen, always vetoes.
As I attached in another thread, Cambodia's Hun Sen even helps #CCP to let them build their naval base in their country:
globalriskinsights.com/2019/10/chines…

You know how awful this is geopolitically...

#Cambodia
That's why, being friends with the opposition power in Cambodia is very important to the Free World.

It is a desperate pitched #battle that #humanity is waging to stop the deadly advance of the #coronavirus.

Since its appearance in #Wuhan #China three months ago, the pandemic has infected one million people and killed 50,000, on a planet inhabited by 6 billion human beings.
Much of the world's population today is #besieged in cities, entrenched in their homes, as an extreme measure to escape the #plague & save lives.

We’re living, without a doubt, a time of tension & psychological crisis, while science, in a fight against the clock, is looking in
medicine for a solution to the challenges of the #pandemic.

The coronavirus is telling the world, in all shades, that #life is more important than #capital, because without life there is no factory.

Salvation is in human #solidarity and not in the perversity of Donald #Trump,

The #IMF says the "Great Lockdown" recession will likely be the worst since the Great Depression. Global economy projected to shrink by 3% in 2020. By contrast, in January, the IMF had forecast a global GDP expansion of 3.3% for this year. Details in chart below. Table: @IMFNews
IMF: Partial global rebound to 5.8% in 2021 “assumes the #pandemic fades in the 2nd half of 2020, & that policy actions taken by countries are effective in preventing widespread firm bankruptcies, extended job losses, & system-wide financial strains.” #WEO ow.ly/ZLYi50zccSJ

What I love about the pan-Asian solidarity of the #nnevvy meme: it posits the existence of an updated lens for English use in Asia, even where English is a colonial legacy. It moves away from linguistic imperialism and towards subaltern linguistics: appropriation and empowerment.
#Taiwan #Thailand #HongKong #Vietnam #Philippines #India #Malaysia etc teamed up with #nnevvy English to take on #China trolls. That it was English isn’t neutral and wasn’t pre-ordained but the source of linguistic imperialism in Asia is increasingly Mandarin, not English.
That there were “mistakes” but nobody cared (as they shouldn’t) shows that subaltern linguistic empowerment is about parole - language in performance. Not language as a system.

1. vorrei vedere un dibattito serio sulla #sorveglianzaDigitale, perché quello che verrà messo in piedi rischia di essere il più grande sistema di sorveglianza mai messo in piedi in una democrazia occidentale
2. se davvero si andrà verso il modello #CoreadelSud con un sistema di #sorveglianza che mette insieme #DatiSanitari,#localizzazione,#filmatitelefonino,#carteDiCredito, sarà un sistema senza precedenti in una democrazia occidentale

Boarded flight today from #NewYork to #Beijing via #Incheon, here's a thread about my experience so far (in context of the #Covid19 #outbreak and measures that #countries, #airlines and #airports are taking for it).
Was surprised that there were no temperature checks or any other #Covid19-related tests for outbound passengers at @JFKairport (drastic contrast with airports in #Asia that have been checking temperature of every OUTBOUND passenger since ~2 months now).
One would expect a country like #USA to take its leadership role in the world more seriously. Shocked to see this lack of responsibility towards what is now a GLOBAL threat. (Also, no hand sanitizers at checkin counters like #Phuket airport had >1 month ago)

1. voglio farvi riflettere sulle soluzioni all'italiana. La settimana scorsa, un professore di economia, @FabbioSabatini, ha iniziato a proporre modello #SudCorea. Evidenze scientifiche che effettivamente funziona? ZERO
2. l'economista @FabbioSabatini citava uno studio di alcuni ricercatori di #Oxford: la corsa al conformismo italiano è partita subito, non importa che 1) lo studio NON fosse neppure soggetto a peer review e quindi non avesse il marchio di informazione scientificamente verificata
3. e non importa che lo studio fosse stato finanziato dalla #LiKaShingFoundation. Chi è Li Ka Shing? L'uomo più ricco dell'#Asia con grandi interessi dalle costruzioni alle compagnie telefoniche
