There is a global pandemic that has always been there and which #COVID19 is forcing you to see: domestic abuse
- #Tunisia: in the first 5 days after people were ordered to stay in, calls to a hotline for women suffering abuse increased fivefold. google.com/amp/s/www.wash…
- #Greenland; the capital banned sale of alcohol following a surge in reports of violence in homes.
- #France: the government set up centers in grocery stores with secret passwords where victims can seek help in one of the few places they still are allowed to visit.
#COVID19
- #Brazil: the federal government hasn’t issued stay-in orders, a state-run drop-in center has seen a 40 to 50 percent rise in demand.

“Victims of domestic violence, most often women, face a double threat: a deadly virus outside and an abuser at home.”

#COVID19 lockdowns and quarantines seem to be reducing crime rates outside.

But inside - at home - increased rates of domestic abuse are a reminder of another kind of global pandemic: violence against women and children.

Home has never been safe for everyone. #coronavirus
Crime drops in lockdown, domestic violence risk climbs bnnbloomberg.ca/stuck-at-home-… #COVID19 #coronavirus
Reported domestic violence cases jumped 30% during lockdown in #France.

In #Paris alone, they were up 36%.

Here come @POTUS and @VP to start the daily @WhiteHouse #coronavirus task force briefing.
"I see we have fewer people because of the virus problem," begins @POTUS. "It's too bad. We extended our best wishes to the person affected."
Totally important to protect our Asian-American community around the world, "it's not their fault," says @POTUS.

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/

4 PCRs w/ only 1 positive
Tracks similarly w/ prior 10 yr old asymptomatic patient cluster in separate study

EXCEPT 10 yr old asymptomatic had CT indicating COVID19 w/ "ground glass" effect.

Asymptomatic patients may or may not show evidence of disease in CT scan.

PCRs widely known for false negatives w/ 30-60% accuracy depending on which gov't source issues numbers.

Stealth pathogen coupled w/ inaccuracy of PCRs?

There's a seasonality to many respiratory #viruses. Will #SARSCoV2 [#COVID19] follow a similar pattern? We hope so BUT we don't really know. We know when air is humid / warm ➡️droplets gather more moisture ➡️too heavy to stay airborne / fall more quickly➡️transmission harder.
There was a significant correlation between #SARS cases & environmental temperature. A sharp rise or decrease in the environmental temperature related to the cold spell led to an increase of SARS cases because of the possible influence of the weather on the human immune system.
Plus the winter season has a profound effect on how human #genes work - this may explain why some illnesses are aggravated in the #winter. During cold, winter months, genes involved with #immunity & specifically #inflammation were more active. nature.com/articles/ncomm…

1. Oh, I just found out that the USA government also forced out a democratically elected leader in #Australia! Over Pine Gap! There you are. I know why I missed this Coup: I was busy being terrified that the USA sponsored fascists would kill my brother.

2. My bad: I was just 12 and I failed to look at the global context. Oh, wait: I didn't. I knew all about the other #LatinAmerican RW dictatorships sponsored by the USA.

3. I was just wondering: I think it's time to bring up reparations. Since the USA screwed up our countries, how about undoing that shit? Start with taking an oath of NEVER, EVER AGAIN intervening in another country - not your circus, not your monkeys.

Let’s take a closer look at Jeffrey Epstein’s friend, Jes Staley; a sneak into allegations of fraud at Elon Musk’s Tesla; and other improprieties.

A whistleblower
at Barclay's made the allegation that the bank “knew” about the “Tesla fraud.”

“It happened in 2011. Barclays knew about it in 2013.”

Some background on Jes Staley, (friend of Jeffrey Epstein and one who visited him while he was in "jail").

Staley is American citizen. He began working at Barclays in December of 2015. Prior to that he worked for JPMorgan for more than 30 years + briefly at BlueMountain Capital.

Det är svårt att föreställa sig om det som sker i Kina. Uppenbarligen samlar de in dissidenter. All internet trafik är spärrad utom de källor som kommer via den kinesiska staten. Det som pågår i Kina angående #Coronavirus är en krigshandling av främmande makt.
Det här viruset är
gjord av människan. Ryssland, Indien, Taiwan vet att viruset innehåller HIV.

Därmed är skiten tillverkad av människan. Det sägs att den slår hårdare mot kinesiska män än mot andra raser, vilket betyder att denna "attack" kommer ej från deras egna led.

Fortsättning följer.

🇨🇳 #China (1) | The question is no longer if, but how hard, the #coronavirus will damage Chinese economy (and its trading partners) in 1Q20.
🇨🇳 #China (2) | A blockage of 16 cities (~50 million people) coupled with the extension of the Lunar New Year holiday and prohibition for Cos to return to work soon implies that 1Q will fall below 6% for the first time since QoQ figures are recorded.
🇨🇳 #China (3) | The impact will probably broaden from retail sales, tourism/transportation...

It’s that time of the year when we look back on how India charted new pathways in #Diplomacy and left an imprint on the global agenda.
The year began with the 10th #IndiaJapan Strategic Dialogue, which provided a platform for blossoming of deep rooted ties into a special strategic & global partnership
The then Japanese Foreign Minister @konotaromp attended the summit along with the former EAM Smt. Sushma Swaraj

#Lula was jailed p much 4 running a social democracy w the "wrong" debt-to-gdp ratio. In country w endemic corruption on all sides, the concept of "corruption" was cynically weaponized against the Left. After #Lula went away➡️fascist prez. Pick a side! Defend leftists! #LulaLivre
@ggreenwald @_michaelbrooks Remember: far right psychos in #Brazil colluded to rig Lula's legal sitch & keep him jailed while on appeal so he couldnt run against fascist #JairBolsonaro. Yesterday's high court decision & today's freeing of @LulaOficial start 2 put it right. cnbc.com/2019/06/15/reu… #LulaLivre
@ggreenwald @_michaelbrooks @LulaOficial Why was #Brazil's Right trying 2 jail Leftists w rigged probes trumped up as "anti-corruption"? Same reason #Bolsonaro et al are nostalgic 4 military rule. They kno they cant win a fair fight. They cant win an election in a multiracial democracy. The backlash is scary! #LulaLivre

WEDNESDAY MORNING IN ENERGY: Where I'm mostly just going to leverage the #Kentucky election to talk about Justified to try to get some eyeballs, mostly because lots going on! #OOTT #energy
So today is where we've got a big day in Brazil - where they're auctioning off offshore rights on a whole load of acreage. #OOTT

Definitely need to follow @NoriegaMarta @mariannaparraga @G_Slattery on this one.

reuters.com/article/brazil…
If all the areas receive a bid, Brazil’s government will net 106.5 billion reais ($26.7 billion) in signing bonuses - and that will plug holes in the country's leaky budget.

Brazil is one of few non-OPEC countries boosting production, meanwhile. #OOTT
