JUST IN: #BNNGhana Reports.

In an effort to protest the ongoing free fall of the cedi against major trading currencies, about eight trade associations and importers in Kumasi, Ashanti Region, have threatened to close their businesses and halt imports for two weeks.
The importers and sellers of clothing and goods claim that the volatile nature of the exchange rate is causing their business to collapse and is also depleting their capital.
The leadership of several groups is organizing people to start the strike next week, according to Nana Yaw Agyeman, the deputy secretary of the importers association in Kumasi.

"One of the ideas we had with #InterPlanetary was, 'What would it take to make science hedonistic? And instead of telling people to do it, you'd have to tell people to STOP doing it?"

- SFI President David Krakauer sets the tone for this weekend's celebrations

David Krakauer: "Do you have a favorite model or metaphor for #time?"

@JamesGleick: "You've already mentioned a river; that's everybody's favorite. Borges said time is a tiger. People talk about it as a thread. We ONLY talk about time in metaphors." Image

Politico London: #Chevening chat: Over the weekend Truss was holed up with close aides in Chevening House, the grace and favor home she has access to as foreign secretary, nailing down whom she will put in her top team if she wins, and which policies she will pursue /1 #Truss
/2 Allies were being tight-lipped about the outcome of the away day last night, insisting there is “no complacency,” but that it is right that preparations for No. 10 Downing Street are being made.

Companies are paying inflation busting #dividends at cost to the rest of the #economy, including their #employees

/2 Richard Murphy: "We are continually being told by Tory politicians and the #bankofengland that #businesses must not give #employees #payrises that might match #inflation because this would create an inflationary spiral. But what about dividends?

‘We are being abandoned’: when the #energy bill goes up by £100,000 a day
If domestic #energybills are climbing, so too are those of #schools, #shelteredhousing, ##Libraries and museums. Grappling with the soaring costs of keeping vital #services running:

/2 “We were set up during the blitz when older people were being bombed out of their homes in Bristol. Our mantra then was to keep them #warm, keep them #fed, and keep them #alive – and we haven’t really needed to worry about that in the decades since,” the chief excutive

/2 In the short term, we’ve got to go through probably a very serious #economiccrisis. I’ve felt for some time that we’re bound to have a very severe #recession. And if we’re not careful, it’s going to be combined with very bad #inflation, which does social, as well as economic

1/10 🧵

As you know, Michael Burry recently sold 98% of his #investment portfolio. Remember that in 2008 he predicted the #collapse of the financial #markets. As always, he cites facts based on fundamental analytics. Will there be a big #crash?
2/10 🧵

1⃣ Elon Musk sold 75% of $BTC;
2⃣ Ray Dalio had taken a short for $10B;
3⃣ Ambiguous movement on the $MSTR #btc wallet and the subsequent resignation of Saylor from the post of CEO;
4⃣ Sales of #MTGox are scheduled for the end of this month.

And much more.
3/10 🧵

#Bitcoin has become a clone of the S&P 500 Index, and all #altcoins follow $BTC, so it is essential to understand what is happening in the global #economy.

Thread #2 below about the @cityofwinnipeg “Corporate Advertising Policy.” A 🧵, the story.

See the start of the first thread here:


#wpg22 #wpgpoli #mbpoli
3.2.e: "Only appear in reputable publications." How is it defined? Opinions: not part of #diversity & inclusion. Reputable is an opinion.

Ex: @energy106fm affirmed values & visions to be “one of the strongest media allies to the #LGBTQ community."

#wpg22 #wpgpoli #mbpoli 24/2🧵
Before that, #Energy hired Dave Wheeler, a host released from his last radio position. The release was due to #transphobic #comments after receiving suspensions for racist comments.

Does @cityofwinnipeg define @energy106fm as reputable?

Contextual Link Building for SEO and its Advantages
Many #businesses use contextual links on their websites to gain traffic and search engine optimization (#SEO). Some have identified the pros and cons of these links and have started to use them as an advantage.
turnkeylinux.org/user/1612814 Let’s examine this closer and discuss what contextual links are.

What is a contextual link?
A contextual link is a keyword or a phrase that is “clickable” on a website. These keywords, when clicked on, lead to another website page with a related topic.
jeans-12.creator-spring.com/listing/buy-mi… For example if you are skimming through content and see the word “affordable cooking utensils” underlined, highlighted, bold or even in italics you are able to click on it and be directed to web content related to affordable cooking utensils.

The brilliant psychological ploy #businesses use to trick YOU into overspending.

A thread.👇
A decade ago, behavioral economist Dan Ariely noticed something strange about the subscription option of the international weekly magazine, The Economist.

The options were:
1. Web-only subscription - $59.
2. Print-only subscription - $125.
3. Web + print subscription - $125.
Dan thought what you’re thinking right now - "why would anyone buy the print-only subscription?"

On conducting a #study among MIT students, he found out that 84% chose the web and print option while only 16% of the students chose the web-only option.

The article → city-journal.org/americas-post-…
1. "The #Pandemic will pass...But in geographic terms, today’s Covid-precipitated crises may well prove to be the most transformative event that #America has experienced since the great migration to the suburbs after World War II."
2. "....centrifugal forces pull some people out of #Cities: families seek more #Affordable space, backyards, and access to better schools. With the wider scope of choice that #RemoteWork affords, some are casting their nets wider and moving farther afield..."
