The war in #Ukraine will bring a sea change in the #Libyan crisis

#JeuneAfrique kindly included a few of my thoughts on why observers really ought to brace for substantial side effects, not just minor ones.

[ thread on the #Russia facet of the #Libya reality c. 2022 ]
Since the Feb. 24 launch of the invasion of Ukraine, apart from lots of unfounded speculation, there’s been not a shred of evidence to suggest any number of #Russian fighters have left Libya.

In fact, over the last several months, the number of Russians in #Brak has increased.
Historically, 1 of the top reasons #Russia has acquired a clandestine #military presence in #Libya is the fact that it’s key strategic territory on #NATO’s southern flank. The #Ukraine crisis of 2014 deepened the Kremlin’s perception of NATO as hostile to Russia’s core interests.

Moral Maze on @BBCRadio4 yesterday was a bit of a peach. Best of all was Ross Clark (@RossjournoClark) who said: "I'm all for cutting carbon emissions, it's the right thing to do and so on. I don't accept the hysterical version of it, that we're all heading for armageddon ...
I think that what we could do in trying to solve climate change is to ruin the economy ... if our children inherit a shattered economy, they are going to be a lot less well off than they would be if we went about the climate issue in a more measured way ...
I don't think that changes in the climate that are likely to occur in the next century, century and a half are going to cause huge economic damage, some areas might get drier, some might get wetter, some might get harder to grow crops, others get easier to grow crops ...

#Narcissism thread 🧵 15 (more) questions to ask yourself if you are questioning whether someone is a #narcissist
1. Do they devalue, diminish, demonise or harshly judge you or act as the righteous ‘authority’ figure with you regardless of their age, status or employment? 🚩
Are they #superior? For e.g. A non lawyer preaching to a lawyer about law. 2. Are they #defensive? Do they seem only interested in trying to prove that they are right & you are wrong, in a defensive mode? 🚩They are #competitive not co-operative. Co-operation is a must #healthy
3. Do they demand #attention from you? For e.g., insisting on having the conversation when it’s convenient for them only &/or use emotional #manipulation to ensure conversation happens on ‘their’ terms? They may not answer the question, go off topic, deflect, defensive, accuse 🚩

Indian cities are not typically imagined to be biodiversity hotspots. Aspects of urban ecology often get missed in public conversations about the city.

Let's start at the very beginning...
When you read you begin with A-be-see!
Every artwork has elements of household and construction waste that the artist found in her neighbourhood in Bengaluru. Look closely and see if you can spot them!

#AMC #GME #TSLA #KOSS #NOK welcome to sundays looking forward statements. We have so much going on right now but we must not lose site of the goal, the battle remains outside against the HF and MM and we need all hands on deck. This week is a big week and we have a busy schedule
Monday morning will come in like a wrecking ball in a good way. I’m hoping it’ll work in our favor as I suspect HF and MM will try to deal with other areas of the market. Tuesday is AMCs shareholder meeting bigs ups to the team their at AMC & @CEOAdam I know your team
Is working tirelessly to help us all even when folks don’t realize it. Two days later we have the SEC (@SEC_News) closed door meeting to discuss different topics but I surmise and I’m hoping it’s about our rules followed by the House financial committee meeting witnesses on deck:

I am #grateful for the opportunity given by #IWS_Network to share my story, struggles and success in the voices without frontiers (VWF).
My name is Betelhem, most people call me Betty and I prefer it that way. I was born 27 years ago to a young couple in AddisAbeba, the capital of #Ethiopia. #IWSVoices 1/n Image
My mom and me rather look like sisters. Despite being a teenager when she got me, she sacrificed her whole life to raise me up. She made sure I had the best #education possible. I am forever grateful to my mom sis & do everything to make her and God #proud. #IWSVoices 2/n Image

1] A few things stood out for me as i was going through Pres Adv Chamisa's changes to his tool box.

Tools tell a lot about the carpenter.
More so when he was previously working with some rusty tools that belonged to the former carpenter.

I hope they will be useful to him.
2] In the appointments, Chamisa made some strong political statements.

Councilor #IanMakoni, MRT's Best Friend, husband to former #MDCTreasurer, & party stalwart Madam TM is now #Sec4Election.

Those who've followed the #Mwonzora fights understand my point.

Interesting pick.
3] Then there's #DavidChimhinhi, the past immediate #MDC-T 2014 #Manicaland Provincial Chair.

Mr Chimhini has replaced @JamesonTimba as Deputy SG.

In light of the #Mwonzora fights, and all the theories that followed, this is a interesting political statement by #Chamisa.

The country loves a #villain when they get stuff done regardless of which rules are broken. But when that villain turns against the mood of the nation, we are reminded that honest values, rules and laws do matter. 1/2
#CummingsCrisis
Hoping this crisis can signal a turning point and time for #calm; to send a clear message to would be villains that this is not how we expect our country to behave. That we are better when we get stuff done in an orderly, organised and truly #responsible way. 2/2
The mood does remind me of #Thatcher's #polltaxgate when a #villain loved my many, had gone on for too long and turned against the mood of the nation. Maybe #cummingsgate does become that historical tuning point?
