The number of children infected with #Covid-19 is less among all other age group in the global population. How about the #psychological, #social impact in on #children? Researches suggests social and psychological impact in this group were mostly severe.
To find some answer and have idea let's take a closer look at the researches and figures provided by the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), which shows the magnitude of the pandemic’s #impact on #children. Image
As families lose their sources of #income and home environments are turned upside down due to the socioeconomic impacts of Covid-19, #children find themselves more vulnerable to #poverty and likely to be deprived of their basic needs. Image

1. Is financial market pricing in some heightened Taiwan Strait war risk this week? Yes, a little. No perfect measure. With China on holiday last wk, can attribute some pop of 5-yr CDS price as caused by heighted attention, which happens around Oct with back to back national days
2. To put in context, China 5 Yr CDS value is 48.87, reveals a 0.81% implied probability of default, on a 40% recovery rate supposed. US 5 Yr CDS is 17.4, reveals a 0.29% implied probability of default. Recent increase in US mostly by the debt ceiling fight. #MintTheCoin hahaha
3. @PredictIt betting market doesn't have a Taiwan specific market, but has 3 China related contracts. Betting on who would be confirmed for next US Ambassador to China, and Pres. Xi's chance of staying as party General Secretary for next 10 years.

@RetractionWatch 1. As the Exit strategy via #vaccine became clearer, the journal IJEST #springer @SpringerNature decided to retract my paper on #COVID19, published 19th Nov, received 5 citations (first preprint 17th March, 2020). @Indrroy @C0PE @levent_k_elpen

@RetractionWatch @SpringerNature @C0PE @levent_k_elpen 2. The Supplementary section of the paper:
1.Solution slide (attached).

Results are consistent if more countries are included. Studies using different statistical techniques also confirmed that. Thus main findings of the study are robust.
@RetractionWatch @SpringerNature @C0PE @levent_k_elpen 3.Retraction letter @SpringerNature mentioned

#solution may not be safe. In order to protect public health, the content has been removed’

Though in the paper, I mentioned the term ‘keeping Comfort level’ (check attached solution slide) and included a caution part in the text

Being going through a tough time of late & work, like everything, has been so hard. There are a few tricks & tools I've held onto for dear life which have helped get me through & now I'm (hopefully) coming out the other side I thought I'd share them #WritersSurvivalTips...
#WritersSurvivalTips 1. Here's an easy one. At the end of the working day (working hour? 20mins) I've learnt to leave myself a clear task to start the next session. Might be a warm-up exercise, dialogue exchange, a stack of index cards to do some beats or a timeline.... Image
....also means my subconscious brain is still working and prepping stuff for the next writing session even if my thinking brain is switched off. XX

Been a while since I finished a book in one sitting but #ThinkAgain by @AdamMGrant was that good. A thread with some of my key takeaways:
#Confidence is a measure of how much you believe in yourself versus your methods. You can be confident in your ability to achieve a goal in the future while maintaining the humility to question whether you have the right tools in the present. That's the sweet spot of confidence.
We should strive to attain confident humility: having faith in our capability while appreciating that we may not have the right solution or even be addressing the right problem - giving us enough doubt to re-examine our old knowledge and enough confidence to pursue new insights.

Here a #Thread about the #History of #China and #Japan:
The inhabitants of the areas that are now China have always identified with their family, their hometown, their province, but not with "China".

#Asia #AsianLivesMatter #AsiansAreHuman
Until the end of the 19th century, it would not have occurred to the Chinese to speak of their “nation”, and even the name “China” was alien to them.
It was the “imperialist powers”, especially the Japanese, who first gave the Chinese the idea that they were a nation.

In the last 20 years #Lebanon has experienced massive occurrence of #conflict and political violence.

But this insecurity was not equally distributed across regions, and this matters a lot.. (1/5)
In the last 20 years, people living in the Greater Beirut Area have spent an aggregate of 10 years without political violence. People living in Tripoli 13 years, while others living in the South, Western Bekaa or Batroun have had 19 out of 20 years of political security. (2/5)
Greater Beirut, Tripoli and Northern Bekaa concentrated insecurity and political violence events in the last 20 years. Together they accounted for 75% of all political violence occurrences.
This unequal internal geographic distribution of political insecurity matters a lot (3/5)

N.Ireland is once again the rope in the UK/EU tug of war.

(we've been here before, several times 🙄😩)

Both claim to be acting on the grounds of the Good Friday/Belfast 1998 Agreement.

Both have a point…

But it’s complicated.

A twitter thread.
#Brexit #GFA
The Belfast/Good Friday #Agreement has 3 strands.

These strands represent the lines of division that gave rise to the #conflict:
* unionist/nationalist within NI,
* north/south across the border, &
* British/Irish.

The B/GFA formalised cooperation across these lines.
Crucially, all are #interdependent.

Underpinning it all is the British-Irish relationship

That relationship was improved & became closer as a result of being ‘partners in the EU’ 🇪🇺

The EU was also a go-to model for some of that cross-border & multilevel cooperation.

This is yet another indication of the attempt by the Israeli government to weaken the Authority and further reduce its position, "said Hasan Awwad, a Palestinian policy expert.
Israeli political analyst and expert on the Israel-Palestinian crisis, Eli Nesan, disagrees. “The Palestinian side disapproves of everything that Israel does,” he saysing what is seen as an attempt to marginalize the Palestinian Authority,
