The #UK’s economic and political life revolves around corruption
By Dorset Eye -
Fear, shame, embarrassment: these brakes no longer apply. The government has discovered that it can bluster through any scandal. No minister need resign. No one need apologise. No one need explain.
As public outrage grows over the billions of pounds of #coronavirus contracts issued by the #govt without competition, it seems determined only to award more of them. Never mind that the consulting company
#Deloitte, whose personnel circulate in and out of govt, has been strongly criticised for the disastrous system it devised to supply protective equipment to the #NHS. It has now been granted a massive new contract to test the population for #Covid-19.

SCL - a Very British Coup…
SCL – a Very British Coup

Liam O Hare on the deep connections between @CambridgeAnalytica’s parent company Strategic Communication Laboratories (#SCL Group) and the #Conservative Party and military establishment,
‘Board members include an array of #Lords, #Tory donors, ex-British #army officers and defense contractors. This is scandal that cuts to the heart of the #British establishment.’

The scandal around mass data harvesting by Cambridge Analytica took a new twist on Monday.
A Channel 4 news undercover investigation revealed that the company’s Eton-educated CEO Alexander #Nix offered to use dirty tricks – including the use of bribery and sex workers – to entrap #politicians and subvert #elections.

I knew Rachel Chandler & Derek Blasberg had to know each other. Both worked for Vogue, know all of the same people, & she’s credited as the photog on some pics. Not to mention, he’s documented over a decade ago on #Purple. Often times, like RC, they were at #TheStandard. ImageImageImageImage
2)There *should be* many photos of them together. They’re both listed as guests at the same intimate events. In this case, you only see RC’s sleeve next to DB ImageImageImageImage
3) Another example (there are MANY) #RachelChandler #DerekBlasberg ImageImageImage

The greatest threat to the world’s oceans and all denizens of the deep is Not plastic, or climate change, or ignorance of sharks. The Chinese Communist Party paramilitary fishing fleet has invaded the globe Image
and they are wreaking havoc and destruction, while stealing everything possible, including minerals from adjoining lands. They have sellout minions who distract from this with a host of minor conservation missions that suck up well intended activists,
and the money of people who thought they were helping. With control of media the real story is fully censored for locals in many places. Any real ocean lover, activist, educator, or conservationist will stand for this cause. The rest will sit down, for the CCP.

When Francis #Fukuyama, in his 1992 book, disclosed the "end of history" #thesis, he became a world celebrity.

The formulation was simple, but devastating for the left: faced with the evidence of the disappearance of the #SovietUnion, he could affirm that #communism had failed..
and that #capitalism emerged victorious as the only system that guaranteed #peace, #freedom & #equality.

However, in 2010 Fukuyama acknowledged that he had not understood the meaning of the disappearance of the Soviet Union and the #European socialist bloc.
Fukuyama had believed in the drunkard #Yeltsin (the face of the gravedigger & #thief who prevailed with blood & fire, supported by the #West, with the coup d'etat in #Moscow in 1993) and in the capacity of liberalism to satisfy human needs and, In addition, in 1992, ...

A convo not too long about how Arkansas and Kansas happened ("Ar-Can-Saw" and "Kan-zas"), got me to thinking we don't talk nearly as much as we should about how names are used to erase histories. So sit back #NativeTwitter, lemme tell you about the #Caribbean.
First, Conquerors and Settlers frequently have no idea what they're talking about. That should be fairly obvious. It's why the Lakota are also "the Sioux" and the Lenape are also "The Deleware". It's all gibberish and nonsense when settler naming gets involved.
So it is with "Kansas" and "Arkansas". One's French and the other's Spanish/English for 'Land of the Kansa'. See, easy, two states, whose pronunciations were popularized by two different phonemic culture groups, and the same spelling suddenly gets all nonsensical.

#PuertoRico #USA #PuertoRicoEarthquakes

#PuertoRico still doesn't seem calm after so many #storms, and this Saturday there was a new 6.0 MI magnitude #earthquake on the momentum magnitude scale as part of a series of #aftershocks that have intensified since Friday night.
According to Prensa Latina, the meteorological phenomenon occurred in #Guánica, 14.87 kilometers south of #Peñuelas, at a depth of 5.04 kilometers.
On the other hand, the #NationalGuard of #PuertoRico considered declaring the island a #disaster area in order to receive additional funds after the #earthquakes.

@kristianali_ presenting work on name signs and tactile sign language in the Bay Islands at @SLL_Radboud Sign Pop-Up.
Many #signlanguages in the #Caribbean! 🤟🏝️ Image
In Bay Islands Sign Language, tactile signers make use of both their own hands and the addressee's hands, as well as both their own body and the addressee's body to produce and perceive the language. Such interactive modality! #signlanguages Image
Name signs in BISL are noticeably often two-handed! May be motivated by the tactile use of the language: articulation on the non-dominant hand is a salient property! #signlanguages Image

@BarackObama @POTUS & @KeithOlbermann tweeted this the other day.

#EvaAirCorporation is a Chinese airline. And EVA stands for EVERGREEN AIRWAYS.

Get that? #Evergreen = #HillaryClinton’s secret SS name.

Evergreen is a cargo ship co so they ship CONTAINERS around the 🌎
They ship to the #Caribbean where the #VirginIslands are🤔

Chang Yung-fa the founder is frm Taiwan, and the airline, ship fleets & container shipments reach the Middle East, Asia, USA in the 70’s
#EvergreenMarineCorp ships large containers to Thailand, Australia, Italy and #LosAngeles California.

#LongBeachPort 🤔

There are many parent & sisters companies with #EVA / #Evergreen. The list is exhausting like #Epstein’s 4200 foundations. 😕

@ird2004 is giving a presentation at #wfd2019 on the history, ideologies, and current research and revitalization work among #signlanguages in the #Caribbean, specifically 🇹🇹🇨🇴🇬🇾🇭🇳. Also involved in these projects are @benbraithwaite, @rehanaomardeen and @kristianali_ Image
There are a lot of microcommunities of signers on various islands in these countries, current documentation work will establish the relationships between various #signlanguages.
These small islands are also often forgotten by their respective governments, which limits the access to language and education for these communities (more so than for the larger sign language communities). #wfd2019

Ghana is set to grant citizenship to 200 African Americans as part of celebrations of the 'Year of Return 2019’.

The occasion would mark the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first African slaves in America
#africanamerican #black #ADOS #caribbean #slavetrade #repatriation
The government of Ghana launched the “Year of Return, Ghana 2019” as part of efforts to encourage African Americans and the black diaspora to return to the homeland where their ancestors were kidnapped and sold into slavery many centuries ago.
#africa #diaspora #homeland
In 2000, Ghana passed the “Right of Abode” law making it the first African country to officially open its doors to people of African descent from all over the world.

The law allows any person of African descent to apply and be granted the right to stay in Ghana indefinitely.
