ABRO HILO. El león en #Europa.
Hace poco, cuando hice RT de un tuit de @serbiaireland que mostraba este cuadro de Velizar Simeonovski: un #león acechando un uro, mucha gente me comunicó su sorpresa porque hubo leones en nuestro continente. Voy a ampliar aquí esa información.
@serbiaireland Y me refiero al león africano de toda la vida, vamos, al Panthera leo de los documentales de @la2_tve. No me refiero al león de las cavernas (Panthera spelaea), que vivió en Eurasia durante el Pleistoceno y se extinguió tras la Edad de Hielo. Ese león era "primo" del africano
@serbiaireland @la2_tve Esta es el área histórica de distribución del león. Como se puede apreciar, fuera de #Africa, hubo leones en toda #Asia occidental, Asia Menor y los Balcanes. Esa Península fue el territorio europeo donde habitó el león.

How Extinction Rebellion 168 climate change zealots - incl. a baronet's Cambridge-educated granddaughter - are paid £400 a week to bring mayhem to our streets. Tory MP called on #HMRC to launch an immediate investigation into the XR tax affairs
mol.im/a/7566515
/1.
Paid XR activists who call for collective guilt & punitive #taxes on the western #taxpayer are enabling new breed of green capitalism, that make select few fabulously rich, while the rest of us choke down meatless hamburgers & pay our #politicians to tax us into oblivion
/2.
Climate Mobilization’s call to action has also managed to unite leftists & anti-capitalists with the global elite. Extinction Rebellion’s call for “net zero” atmospheric carbon is shared by The World Bank, and a host of neoliberal think-tanks & financiers

THE NEW, NEW WORLD ORDER

It appears the West would rather have no world than a world they can no longer control.

Losing dominance is more than western power-junkies can bear it seems.

This is the primary cause of their rabid & deeply irresponsible behavior of recent years.
THE NEW, NEW WORLD ORDER

China’s ‘Belt & Road’ initiative will change our world forever.

The East is already producing high end products at the least cost.

This will become an ever increasing trend attracting immense investment & providing superb products at affordable prices.
THE NEW, NEW WORLD ORDER

‘The Belt and Road Initiative is a global development strategy adopted by the Chinese government involving infrastructure development & investments in 152 countries & international organizations in #Asia #Europe #Africa the #MiddleEast & the #Americas.’

Deciphering the panoply of manipulation deceit & lies of the parasitic #Ophite/ #Khazarian #Globalist #DeepState cabal…

To begin with “#OnlyTheNameChanges” is key to THEIR usurping/ renaming belief systems for THEIR own benefit… regardless ALL are based on #Ophiolatreia 🐍

To comprehend “#Serpent worship” one must travel far back in time to the founding cults of ALL symbolism/ religions/ belief systems…

The Kyoto centre:
1. Provides international mediation facilities
2. Is a centre for mediation research and education

On the verge of opening a new similar centre in Tokyo.

Laila T Ollapally - unless mediation is as lucrative as other forms of dispute resolution, we're not going to attract the best candidates.

Journalist and peace campaigner #JohnPilger says there was “not a shred of evidence” to suggest #Iran was responsible and nobody should trust the #Trump administration.

Mr #Pompeo, without presenting evidence to support his claim, said his allegations were “based on intelligence
, the weapons used, the level of expertise needed to execute the operation” and more.

President Donald #Trump repeated the claims today during an interview with Fox News, alleging that a video proves Tehran’s guilt.

The video is said to show an Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps
boat approaching one of the tankers and removing an unexploded mine from its hull. But the ship’s Japanese owner contradicted the #US interpretation yesterday, saying footage showed something flying at the boat above the water line #Trump promised the US won’t “take it lightly.”

1: The global banking industry is showing signs of renewed health:

i. Deep capital reserves-Tier-1 capital is at decade-high ~12.6%.
ii. High liquidity: Loan-to-deposit ratio fell to~90%, as comp. to 120% in 2007
iii. Innovation: Investment in digital capabilities & partnerships
2: Banks have taken an axe to costs, yet profits remain elusive (falling ROE and P/B Multiples), leading to depressed valuations.

The unstoppable march of ‘Four Horsemen’ —Disintermediation, Commoditization, Unbundling/Rebundling, and Invisibility— continues.
3: Technology is breaking up traditional value chains into new stacks.

—Traditional Model: Banks vertically integrated. Competition between banks with similar offerings.
—New Model: Modularization. Specialized service providers compete on product innovation and distribution.

A little thread, which I may come back to, for all those #technophobes who blame rise in #suicide on #socialmedia.

First: legit, what rise?
Second: The actual experts do not agree with you, and your fear-mongering is likely causing more harm than good.
cf. Thomas, K, and Gunnell, D. (2010). Suicide in England and Wales 1861–2007: a time-trends analysis. International Journal of Epidemiology, Volume 39, Issue 6, December 2010, Pages 1464–1475.
So, first the data, from #UK (above) and elsewhere (below).

Clearly if this epidemic was *caused* by a *single* factor it would permeate all societies with social media.

The menōrah is a characteristic symbol of #Judaism. The six-branched lamp stand with a seventh central lamp was reportedly already present when the Israelites crossed into Samaria (#Canaan) and pitched their tabernacle tent in the town of Shiloh during the late 2nd millennium BC.
The #Hebrew name menōrah is related to the word נור (nōr), meaning light, made feminine (by means of the post-fixed ה) and prefixed with the particle מ, which denotes a noun of place. It literally means lamps-stand and is closely connected to the #Arabic word منار (manār).
In Exodus 25:31-32, God reveals the design of the menōrah to Moses: "Make a lamp stand of pure gold. (...) Six branches are to extend from the sides of the lamp stand; three on one side and three on the other." It was to light the tabernacle tent and the Temple of Jerusalem.

While Russia needs to be held accountable, withdrawal from the #INFTreaty will have significant consequences for international security and geopolitics.
The full implications of taking this step at this time ought to be fully considered, including with Congress, beforehand.
The #INF Treaty covers ground-launched, intermediate-range missiles.
With its large territory in the middle of Eurasian landmass, such missiles let #Russia range targets throughout #Europe, #MiddleEast and #Asia.
For example, here's the coverage of SS-20s Moscow deployed in 1986:
Thus, the INF Treaty deprives Russia of a significant military capability, for which its size and location are strategic advantages.
