In 2021, #Brazilian scientists led an international collaboration which resulted in unexpected results presented as “A New Hypothesis for The Origin of #AmazonianDarkEarths A brief thread
Those findings were misconstrued by some in the media as an attack on #indigenous peoples and their traditions in the #Amazon region. This couldn’t be farther from the truth.

Thank you @IWS_Network for giving me the opportunity to share my #story 💜 ! This a part of Voices Without Frontiers program iwsnetwork.ca/voices-without… #IWS #WomenInSTEM #VoicesIWS #ecology #conservation #biodiversity
I was born in #saopaulo, #Brazil’s largest city, very different from the #Amazon Rainforest & Rio! See me and a #samauma, the most famous Amazon tree 🌳

I can say I lived in a great #rainforest because Sao Paulo & most of the coast of Brazil are in the Atlantic Forest 🌴🌺🐍. It is one of the 34 world’s #hotspots of #biodiversity, with more than 1500 plant species and 90% of original area loss. #VoiceIWS @IWS_Network Source: https://www.e-educa...

It was lunch time in #Brazil on a Saturday in 1990 when I decided it was time to be born! I grew up in a large city in #SãoPaulo called #Guarulhos, which in Tupi (native language) means “eaters” or “big-bellied people”. Here’s the proof I am “Guarulhense”:

Our #family was not wealthy, but my parents made sure I had good #education, even if that meant sacrificing part of their own life. For that I will be forever #grateful. They made sure I learned how to #appreciate everything I had that money could not buy.

Black #Brazilian women take bold action against gender-based violence.

As President Bolsonaro’s far-right government decimates state support, activists are stepping in to combat abuse during the coronavirus crisis. via @5050oD #COVID19

“As children we learn to help each other, to be community-minded, understanding that the survival of another woman is our own survival,” says Aline Maia Nascimento from the Observatório de Favelas, a grassroots group in Rio de Janeiro. #Brazil
“...we are taking palliative action because the state is not showing up”

Under Bolsonaro’s far-right govt, critical social policies have been undermined & budgets to respond to violence vs women have been cut. Activists are doing the work of failed or dismantled institutions.

THREAD: Financial hardship for international students.

It is hard to imagine the incredible financial hardship that the international students who stayed in the United States are going through.

(1/n)
The international students who went back home are doing "relatively" well from a financial standpoint.

Most of them are living with their parents and their families can help support them with basic needs.

The ones who stayed, however, face a very different situation.

(2/n)
For an international student who stayed in the United States, they will have - at least - the following expenses:

- Groceries and basic supplies
- Housing

Other miscellaneous can come, but those are certainly the main expenses.
