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,
the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), the Israeli Defense Ministry unit responsible for civilian affairs in the Palestinian territories, has announced it will accept requests for permits to enter and work in Israel,

On #WorldElephantDay horrified to see this regressive unempathetic report from @MoEFCC  that fails to recognize the ecology & nature of #elephants, seeks to block their #RightOfPassage confine them to tiny slivers of #ProtectedAreas 1/n
It speaks of 'restricting #elephants in their natural habitat- Restricted by way of trenches , railway fences , cement structures and this is what such 'best management' practices do . 2/n
#elephants are migrants they will move...and try to break down barricades that hem in their #forests and block their passage.
Like this tusker from #Bandipur .3/n

Hey, dispute resolution field. Yeah, you. Listen up, y'all: We really, really, REALLY need to stop using the term 'Ombudsman.'
#ombudsperson #ombudsman #Ombuds #disputeresolution #ADR #conflict #alternativedisputeresolution
We need to stop talking about how we maybe need to stop using it, or how we might use other names alongside it, and we need to just STOP USING IT.
Wondering why I’m tweeting such an atypically, a-professionally unneutral position on this? Then you’re perfectly primed for the next tweet. The unneutral medium really is the unneutral message.

Officials in Baku and Yerevan confirmed shelling with large-caliber weapons and said fighting was ongoing near the border in the Tavush region.
Russia has said on Friday it is prepared to mediate peace talks between ex-Soviet rivals Azerbaijan and Armenia after fighting escalated along their shared border. Turkey's defense industry chief said on Friday that his sector was ready to help Azerbaijan,
which has seen border clashes with Armenia in which 16 people have been killed. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday that it would not hesitate to "stand against any attack" on Azerbaijan and that Armenia was "out of its depth" in the conflict.

#Austria #EU #Turkey #Vienna #Conflict

Austria has called for the EU to change course towards Turkey. The conversion of Hagia Sophia into a mosque is only the "youngest link in a chain of provocations,"
said Austrian Foreign Minister Alexander Schallenberg at his meeting with his EU colleagues in Brussels. Turkey's behavior in conflicts such as Libya or the gas drilling off Cyprus which the EU has classified as illegal showed that the country is
"simply not a reliable partner of Europe".Schallenberg called to the EU for "a policy with a strong edge towards Turkey". He reaffirmed Austria's position to end negotiations with the country on joining the EU."I believe that the European Union should also make a clear cut here."

People are weird & complex & conflicted. What worries me that they genuinely think they're nice, god fearing folks. And that any problems you've had with them are because of a particular situation not because of who they are.

#conflict #Hypocrisy
I find this culture of self forgiving & building an excuse narrative extremely hypocritical.

Rules to live by & if you fail, you own that too:

1. You get into a contract you honour it
2. You use someone for your work, financial especially, you owe them.

#Hypocrisy #Thread
3. You receive goodness from someone you better tell your family to be nice & generous to them, especially in praying for them
4. You try & open doors for the less fortunate, always.
5. Pay the fees of struggling students regardless of grades

Sir, it was in Palakkad not Mallapuram.
And why the Indian culture remarks? #Kerala #keralaelephant
Let's not forget Mr Javadekar had defended the culling of animals like nilgai, wild boar. Supported by farmers-
Javadekar, who held the post of Minister for Environment defended animal culling, insisting it is done on the request of states to protect crops…
End of the day we have a huge problem between farmers and animals that destroy their crop. Needs a solution so farmers don't resort to firecrackers & tragic #elephant deaths like in Kerala. Mr Javadekar had supported culling of nilgai etc because of this…

1/ “Even if a new president proposes sweeping reforms, Congress would block or severely #weaken them. In #foreignpolicy, however, a new president could reshape the world with a few strokes of the pen. @StephenKinzer
@stephenkinzer 2/ “A president could bring the U.S. back into the Iran nuclear deal; lift sanctions on Venezuela; offer to begin peace talks with Russia & China; pull American troops out of the ME; stop promoting the overthrow of foreign governments @StephenKinzer
@stephenkinzer 3/ 3 candidates are fully wedded to the paradigm of #conflict & #confrontation that shapes American #foreignpolicy: #JoeBiden, #AmyKlobuchar, & #PeteButtigieg.

#Israel #Jerusalem #Russia #Syria

#Russia's #ambassador to #Syria released this week what some saw as a veiled threat to #Israel if Israel continued to #bomb #Iranian positions in the war-torn country.
On February 6th, 20 #Syrian and #Iranian military officials were #killed in an airstrike on a target near #Damascus. The attack also resulted in #Syrian air defense systems accidentally firing on a #Russian 172-passenger plane.
The plane was able to land safely at a nearby airport. However, #Russian #ambassador Alexander Yefimov was not interested in the Israeli justifications. In an interview with Sputnik arabic, Yefimov described the #Israeli #attacks as “#provocative and very #dangerous”.

This is your daily pension announcement:
Far be it from me to include this Op Ed from Travis. These tired old talking points don't deserve the light of day again.
I do want to take some of this apart and perhaps speculate about the future. #AbLeg…
I do agree that this current pension situation is absolute nonsense. Travis and Alberta Finance are responsible for 99.5% of this nonsense. Are you getting good advice? Or are you ignoring the advice you are given? I don't have enough information to speculate. #handsoffmypension
Allow me to speculate about how this might have happened... Kevin (CEO of AIMCO) a year ago probably knew he was in a bind. After about 10 years of negotiations the public sector plans had been given joint sponsorship (that ATRF already had for generations)

How do we find #peace in the midst of political strife, impeachment, coup attempt or whatever?
External events, especially those seeking outcomes that either attract or repel us, can trigger fears and desires that steal our #peace and lead us into conflict.
Political conflict results from a fear of an unknown future, and belief that fighting can allow us to control the outcome - which in reality is, for most, beyond influence or control.

Some of the #teamies, i.e. me, can't be there which is really sad but for a wonderful reason, granddaughter-sitting-Sadie-Rose. So I thought in celebration of the launch, I'd share some photos from the art exhibition that ran alongside the conference.
What better place to start than with the art exhibition team: @10PYusuf, The Dame and @Rodkippen.

There will be more!

@10PYusuf @Rodkippen As with many stories there was of course a #backstory - @DrDeeMichell and me(!) met at the Foundling Museum for a pre-conference chat where talked all things orphans and #CEP. Dee had travelled with hubby to be at the conference.
