1/ With all the talk about France's latest law on mandatory #solar roofing of car parks above 80 spaces, we think it's time to start talking about other symbiotic solar relationships 👇🧵
2/ Although car parks and roof buildings are optimal unused space in urban areas, there is also the need for #offgrid electricity ⚡ in rural areas which often rely on diesel generators when solar 🌞 PV isn't available.
3/ Also, climate change 🌎 is making #farming yields increasingly uncertain, and many farmers want to diversify their earnings to become more resilient

Who wants to be in a business where you can go bust from one year to the other?

At the 50th session of @UN_CFS and @WFPChief said in video message how #hunger levels are rising globally. They've had to cut food aid rations around the world and choose to feed "the starving" instead of "the hungry".
@UN_CFS @WFPChief If rising cost of fertilisers' is not resolved in the next month or two, food production next year will be affected, warned @MaximoTorero, chief economist of @FAO. #foodsystems #CFS50 #hunger #farming #agriculture
There are a few things governments can do to improve the situation, but there are tradeoffs, say @MaximoTorero at #CFS50

Kinh nghiệm của mình dành cho anh vốn bé trong mùa này là nên chơi theo dòng tiền của của 1 số hệ sinh thái mới ra, có thể trend chỉ vài ngày hoặc vài tuần nhưng nếu bắt được sớm thì mua con gì cũng sẽ win
mấy hệ sinh thái mới thì giai đoạn này đa số nên mua mấy con làm #DEX sau đó là mấy con #farming hoặc là #NFT
Theo follow đó mình đã bắt được khá nhiều trend sớm gần đây như: #dogechain #ethw #arbitrum #op .Nên nhớ là chỉ ăn sóng đầu không nên kỳ vọng quá lâu trong giai đoạn này

⚠️Among many other things
-declines in pollinating insects

-land degradation and salinisation
-even *increasing extreme weather*

"Tight grain supplies reflect the impact of climate change on crop production as well as growing global demand for livestock that feed on corn, eating away at stockpiles"

& guess what?

☝️All these warning signs at the same as we know models are likely highly conservative in predicting how #ClimateChange will impact global food production-

I recently discovered a new manner to DCA your way into assets with a discount of 10 - 15%. An additional benefit here is that you, as a user, will contribute to the stability and longevity of the protocol as well.

👇🏽🧵
/1 The protocol that can be used to DCA your way into a new asset is @vestaxyz which is a stablecoin issuer on Arbitrum. Here’s a thread I wrote earlier about this project.

/2 Users can open a vault and mint $VST with these assets as collateral but must maintain a Minimal Collateralization Ratio (MCR) above these percentages to prevent liquidation:
⁃$ETH - 110%
⁃$renBTC - 110%
⁃$gOHM - 150%
⁃$GMX - 150%
⁃$DPX - 150%
⁃$GLP - 120%

I said a few days ago that there were triple digits APY on stable coins in a blue chip. Well, @kava_platform posted it but currently the APY has been going down and sits around 24.8% and up too 47,17% APY.

But hey, decent yield + stables am I right?
👇🏽🧵
/1 We all know @CurveFinance as the well known stable swap AMM which allows 1:1 assets to be swapped in an efficient manner with low slippage. Curve recently expanded to the @kava_platform ecosystem. So what's the TL;DR on Kava?

/2 @kava_platform is a L1 within the IBC-ecosystem and is unique since it's one of the few blockchains that simultaneously support the EVM as well. Now with the core infrastructure being built out, it's time to create a flourishing ecosystem and attract both users and TVL.

PIG #FARMING: Everything You Need to Know to Get Started with Pig Farming and Where to Invest In #RWANDA.
Do you want to invest in pig farming?
This comprehensive #Thread guide will walk you through the process of getting where to invest in a pig farm in #Rwanda.
WHY START PIG FARMING?
Pig farming only needs a small investment in buildings and equipment. Pig farming also offers quick returns because the marketable weight of fatteners (piglets you’re raising for the freezer) can be reached within six to eight months.
Pigs have the highest #feed conversion efficiency. This means pigs produce more live weight from a given weight of feed than any other class of meat-producing animal, with the exception of broiler chickens. wide variety of feeds, such as:
Grains
Premixes
Straight meals.....

🚨 GET 15 AIRDROPS WITH ALMOST ZERO COST

- When I say zero cost it means the amount of money you still need to pay for the fees is less than 1% of the #airdrop you might get

- You probably have done these tasks before but its still gd idea to be a repeat user
#Alpha 🧵🕵️‍♂️⚡️🪂 Image
1/
- I strongly recommend not going for airdrop #farming and staying a genuine user, you don't wanna lose #airdrops for being flagged as a #hunter
- I suggest doing at least 2-3 #transactions on each product and keeping it +1K dollars, repeat the steps till you reach that amount
2/
- Most tasks are #Swaps and #Bridges so always changes the #network and even the #tokens you swap or bridge / The more network you do #transactions the better

- You can go from A to B then B to C .. C to D to the end OR A to C - C to F - F to B .... do it in random order✅

Agri culture in India involved raising livestock to support farming, for milk and meat, and also to support the leather industry. It has evolved over millennia and weathered quite a variety of challenges: socio-political and environmental. 1/15
Caste was exploited. In post independent India it was eminently possible to attack caste based occupation & discrimination in farming and livestock rearing, without destroying millennia old knowledge that constituted agriculture. The opportunity was forfeited. 2/15
First by the Congress pandering to upper caste pressures, and now BJP, have targeted livestock rearing and turned the farms and livestock into a battle of political ideologies. 3/15
