1. I'm on a long road trip & came across with #Ethiopia|'s 'home grown economic reform agenda' doc & tried to chew it but unable to swallow it neither as major economic reform nor as 'home grown economic reform'.
2. Without being bogged on how or what it is called, I will try to put my personal take & feedback on the the fundamental issues/flaws realted to to this reform. I remember a yr ago I've indicated what I think regarding major economic reforms should be undertaken in #Ethiopia.
3. General observation:
a) to certain degree it succeed to pin point some of structural constraints (still not the root causes)
b) it simplifies the complex economic issues and proposes simplistic reforms (it is like treating the fever without diagnosing the chronic infection)

This #archaeology thread is about #context โ€“ where we find our artifacts โ€“ and why that matters

Iโ€™ll start w/ the 1st site I ever dug at, the cave of Fontรฉchevade in France, and then Iโ€™ll look at the ancient trade in painted ceramics from Athens (*CW: graphic ancient sex)
Fontรฉchevade was found in the late 19th century and dug by a series of โ€œeducated amateursโ€ whose goal was โ€œto procure collectible items.โ€ Some were sold, others went to museums, but info on where most collectible items from this period of archaeology came from was scarce
Germaine Henri-Martin started systematic excavations in 1937

Originally a violinist, she became an archaeologist to keep her fatherโ€™s lab and legacy alive. She biked many kilometers to the cave. She was clearly a real badass

Interesting things afoot in political attitudes in N.Ireland.

The majority of people say they are #Neither Unionist nor Nationalist.
This has risen from 1/3 to ยฝ since 1998.

Here's a thread summarising my paper at the โ€˜constitutional futuresโ€™ conference @ucddublin today.
'Neithers' are likely to have a mix of both British & Irish identities.

This compares to ยฝ Unionists having exclusively British identities & 72% of Nationalists exclusively Irish identities.

So some 'Neithers' are only British, some only Irish & some โ€˜otherโ€™, i.e. mixed!
This slide shows we canโ€™t read directly across from a #Neither identification to a particular view on NIโ€™s constitutional status.

The majority say they'd vote to remain in the UK but also - notably - ยผ would not vote at all in a border poll.

The #stabbings in #Germany continue (deadly ones are but the tip of the iceberg): a 19-year old #German man was mortally stabbed (in the back) in the #PrenzlauerBerg-district of #Berlin on 2019-02-09. By, the perpetrator shouted "Hurensรถhne"
.. shortly before the incident. If is to be believed, the victim did not answer the perpetrator's #provocations, rather tried to flee.

Relevant #context: andโ€ฆ. It is not clear what "dunkler Teint" means.
A telling piece of (dark!) satire which I found in the comments ofโ€ฆ:

( I won't translate this, as this is too touchy a subject; I reproduce this for scientific purposes only, to give a sample of how people react to such reports. )

Buhari did not order Dejiโ€™s Arrest. Even the IGP or Force PRO did not know he was arrested until briefed later. We were informed later and we engaged. Police complied & the court granted him bail. #FactCheck
Bail conditions couldnโ€™t be arranged because of time. A level 14 civil servant who must come with a letter from his employer - FCT jurisdiction; and a businessman within the court's jurisdiction.) so this will be sorted tomorrow morning. Keep you updated.
We will jump through hoops to make the impossible happen and expect fair play by the authorities. The Magistrate should make a believer of the People by ensuring he is available to sign the papers for his release tomorrow. @PoliceNG @NPFSpokesPerson should make sure of this.

This is how I know there is more to this story than is being shared.

CPL is trying to use this situation to attack @realDonaldTrump.

It's even deeper than I thought.

This is the same force behind #SpyGate & coup attempt.

They are really panicking.

1/ Tweetstorm a comin' cuz @IvyBGrey really likes it when I "have a conversation with an article." First of all, super ๐Ÿ’ฏ helpful and useful breakdown of varying #innovation approaches, so everyone trying to do all the innovation things, please read the article, like now thanks.
2/ Is "incremental" a dirty word? No. But to most people it #feels less exciting & flashy than "#disruptive." Yes, I said #feels. Bc most ppl probably will not read Ivy's excellent article or this tweetstorm bc they're not on Twitter. To them all this sounds/#feels like jargon.
2 / Exhibit A / From @DCaseyF who is now 5.7% as famous as @RealCarrotTop, who is in turn is now only 0.8% as Twitter famous as @EmrgencyKittens:โ€ฆ
