#RBI kept the #Rupee ‘exceptionally’ stable so far, and the tide could turn for the better say experts

businessinsider.in/finance/news/r…

By @jainrounak Image
A looming global #recession, unprecedented #inflation and a strengthening US dollar has forced central banks around the world to use their forex reserves to keep their currencies from falling. The #RBI has done an ‘exceptional’ job of keeping the rupee stable so far, experts say. Image
Indian markets have remained relatively strong as compared to peers like #Indonesia and #Brazil. Much of this is due to the strong buying by domestic investors even as foreign investors continued to pull out record money from India.

A Summit 🧶. Regarding two recurrent talking points being bandied about by leaders and some pundits at the #SummitoftheAmericas: 1) that the US imposed a US candidate at the IDB. As much as I despise Trump’s diplomatic vandalism, it was actually #LatAm that was incapable, …1/4
..unwilling and uninterested to propose and coalesce around a common candidate to ensure the the IDB stayed in #LatAm hands; 2) that the US is not investing diplomatic capital and bandwidth in the continent. That may be true, but what’s also true is that @Potus has no one… 2/4

Stalemate on figuring out the origins of #SARSCoV2 -- from @WHO :
A team of scientists convened by the WHO to determine the origins of #COVID19 & future outbreaks says a theory that the virus escaped from a lab merits “further investigations.”

The WHO-backed team said they had not received any new data that would allow them to better evaluate the lab-leak theory, & #Brazil #China & #Russia objected to further investigation.
Meanwhile, the report said avail data show that #SARSCoV2 had a zoonotic origin.

"which means it spread between animals in a natural setting, but that neither the animal that infected humans nor the place where this infection occurred could currently be identified."
Which REALLY means that debate over the origins of #SARSCoV2 remains a political football.

Rapid proliferation of the FGC-9 in #Brazil. Seeing lots of images like these.
On one hand building this 3D gun is trendy, but also the main groups I've seen doing this seem to have an ideological solidarity with JStark. Really interesting.

#BRAZIL: Brazilian authorities must conduct a swift and thorough search for journalist Dom Phillips and ensure he is found as soon as possible.

Phillips was on a reporting trip in the Indigenous territory of the Javari Valley with expert Bruno Pereira.
cpj.org/2022/06/britis…
@cmdelaserna: “The disappearance of British journalist Dom Phillips during a reporting trip in the Brazilian Amazon is extremely concerning, and Brazilian authorities must work to locate him and his traveling companion, Indigenous issues expert Bruno Pereira, immediately.”
“Journalists reporting on Indigenous issues are doing critical work, and must be able to do so without fearing for their safety,” said Carlos Martinez de la Serna, CPJ’s program director, in New York. #Brazil

Almost a third of the murders were reportedly linked to resource exploitation

#China has signed an agreement with #Brazil to allow imports of 🇧🇷 #corn, previously subject to phytosanitary restrictions.

These are Brazil's top customers. Iran, Egypt & Spain in particular overlap with Ukraine, China's usual go-to supplier. Japan and S Korea overlap w/ USA. Image
Those original 7 countries I showed account for 2/3 of #Brazil's annual #corn shipments. Taiwan also overlaps with USA, as does Mexico when adding some secondary Brazilian buyers.

Will be lots of secondary overlaps because countries that don't grow corn NEED corn! 🌽 Image
Here's a reminder of where USA, #Ukraine & #Argentina export #corn for comparison. Two USA charts: 1 shows recent buyers and then another shows buyers' shares pre-#China (China started buying US big in 2020). Argy chart is from USDA/FAS.

USA+BR+AR+UA = 85% of world corn exports ImageImageImageImage

Thread : Buy #palmoilfree and #boycott all Nestle @Nestle products because their #palmoil is destroying rainforest, causing massive global species #extinction. Join me and #Boycott4Wildlife - use your wallet as a weapon! palmoildetectives.com/2021/02/09/nes… via @palmoildetect
This brand @Nestle @NestleUSA @NestleUKI @NestleHealthUS
is destroying rainforests, releasing mega-tonnes of carbon into the atmosphere, killing hundreds of endangered species. See Nestlé’s full list of mills where they buy palm oil, six of these are actively destroying forest.
Forest in Indonesia, Malaysia, Africa. They are burn down huge extensions of forests to stablish palm oil plantations. This savage #ecocide is changing the ecosystems forever. Pls take action. Don't keep this going #climatechange #PalmOil #ProtectWildLife #BoycottPalmOilProduct

🌽Global #corn export thread🌽

🇺🇸USA, 🇧🇷#Brazil, 🇦🇷#Argentina & 🇺🇦#Ukraine account for 85% of the world's corn exports. But who ships where?

🇺🇸Let's start in top exporter USA. China, Mexico & Japan were the destinations for 69% of all shipments last year. Image
🇺🇸USA only started shipping heavily to #China again in the last two years, so here is the 3-year average prior to that. Mexico, Japan & South Korea accounted for 58%. Image
🇧🇷Two-thirds of shipments out of No. 2 #corn exporter #Brazil end up in these seven countries: Iran, Japan, Egypt, Vietnam, Spain, South Korea & Taiwan. That has been true the past 3 years despite annual export volumes varying drastically based on the harvest outcomes. Image

#Deforestation: "#Consumption patterns of G7 countries drive an average loss of 3.9 #trees per person per year. Some of the hotspots of deforestation embodied in international trade are also #biodiversity hotspots"

nature.com/articles/s4155… #BiodiversityCrisis #WorldSystem
"#USA, #Japan, #Germany, #France, the #UK, and Italy, and several developing countries, such as #China and #India, have obtained net domestic forest gains. The net forest gains made in these countries were partially offset by importing embodied deforestation from elsewhere"
"Our analysis addresses two main questions: (i) Which #deforestation hotspots are driven by which consumer countries? and (ii) Which forest ecosystems, tropical rain forests or other forest types are the top targets of global supply chains?"

While the focus is on #Putin's #UkrainianGenocide, let's not forget about #Xi's #UyghurGenocide and his support for Putin, Kim Jong-un, the Myanmar junta, MBS, and other tyrants. Xi Jinping is the world's #1 advocate for #HumanRightsViolations.

nytimes.com/2022/04/04/wor…
The #UyghurGenocide includes "internment, forced abortion, forced sterilization, forced birth control, forced labor, torture, brainwashing, rape, and gang rape" as policy. No one deserves to be subject to such grave #HumanRightsViolations. Xi ruined #HongKong. #Taiwan isn't safe.
Xi believes #China needs to be strong to avoid the trauma it inhereted from the "Century of Humiliation" at the hands of Western colonial powers and Japan. But in asserting China's strength, Xi sides with the worst of tyrants and crushes those who believe in #HumanRights.

One of the cheaper options, the third cheapest to be precise, in #Qatar for #FifaWorldCup, is $5500 for a week

We spent half that in #SouthAfrica, #Brazil & #Russia for 3 weeks each

Also only one portal to access acco, no hotel sites etc

@FIFAWorldCup @QatarEmb_London @qatar Image
Unlike any of the previous 6 #WorldCup I've attended, this is by far the most painful, most expensive one already

The govt needs to step in to provide more, cheaper accommodation options right away

Also, the sites aren't functioning well
We got tickets in the morning but neither the Hayya site or the Accommodation site recognise the ticket application or the individual ticket numbers yet

In #Russia it was nearly instantaneously updated

Finally apartment options don't mention public transport links 😳
