So from the thread @Qnie_Addis I have had some discussions with colleagues and made some inquires on the @CNN and @nimaelbagir's #Fake news against #Ethiopia on their 'news report'. 1/14
Please read this thread @Qnie_Addis @EthThinker @MimiH87987850 @PLPSD @dejene_2011. 🙏
First, the best way, I think, is to assert based on the US laws. That means, they can be responsible for violating the laws of the US especially concerning fake news. But, due to the First Amendment that provides wider protection to freedom of speech this task is no easy. 2/14
The reason is simple, the US does not have laws against fake news. Of course there is fake news. But the US law favors freedom of speech more. They have their own philosophy. Yet, that does not mean freedom of speech is absolute. 3/14

"#Data: a new direction" - a public consultation by @DCMS on "reforms to the UK’s #DataProtection regime":

gov.uk/government/con…

The consultation ends on 19 Nov 2021, and you can respond by e-mail to DataReformConsultation@dcms.gov.uk or online here:

A quick sample of initial reactions...

We're clearly going to be hearing a lot about #LegitimateInterests, as well as #commercial and #public ones. The real question being, how do this Government's interests actually align with YOURS?

140+ pages on a Friday is a lot to digest, but @lilianedwards' "penumbra of often futile determinedly populist ideas largely not evidence-based" seems entirely consistent with @DCMS's Drunkard's Walk through #data and #ID this past year...

1/ Let's play compare and contrast:

(Left) The police attacked the victims in lock step with a violent #Nazi.

(Right) The police trumped up as many charges as possible under the direction of far right groups.

Just wait until we get to compare the #media response. #cdnPoli Image

@JornalOGlobo @praiabarrarj @eduardopaes está corretíssimo na sua decisão. #Hospitais #Públicos e #Privados do #RioDeJaneiro não têm mais #vagas em #UTIS. A fila de espera aumenta conforme o número de contaminados pelo #COVID19 cresce. Considerando que, graças à #INÉRCIA e #INCAPACIDADE de @jairbolsonaro,
@JornalOGlobo @praiabarrarj @eduardopaes @jairbolsonaro não temos #vacinas suficientes para #imunizar os #brasileiros não há alternativa que não seja a implantação de #restrições #severas à #circulação de pessoas com o #objetivo de #interromper a circulação do #coronavirus, e, em consequência, #diminuir o #contágio, as #mortes,
@JornalOGlobo @praiabarrarj @eduardopaes @jairbolsonaro as filas e o número de internações. O mundo inteiro está sofrendo.
Só não sofre quem já se foi.

@blogdojosias @UOLNoticias @UOL #Bolsonaro é um #CRIMINOSO #confesso.
Só não é impichado porque comprou #parlamentares com vantagens que somente o #chefe do #Executivo #federal poderia oferecer.
Além disso controla parte do #Judiciário e do #MinistérioPúblico acenando com a #vaga que se abrirá no #STF
@blogdojosias @UOLNoticias @UOL Não faltam provas de que os #Bolsonaros estão muito à vontade em relação aos demais #Poderes da #República.
Tanto que, enquanto eu, você, nós tivemos nossas #vidas profundamente #modificadas pela #pandemia do #CORONAVIRUS, o 01 continuou comprando #imóveis, seu #hobby #favorito.

#Wonk warning: a #thread on social cost of #carbon (SCC). We at @CVEPLLC expected @JoeBiden not just to reinstate higher SCC in his #dayone #climate order but also to look at incorporating #environmental #justice into it.

He did, and it matters. #OOTT /1
Background: when #federal #agencies write rules, they try to maximize net benefits or minimize net costs.

The goal is that adding up all benefits for (and costs to) society + all costs to (and benefits for) regulated parties should be > 0. /2
In this context, SCC offers a way for agencies to “monetize” societal benefits of #climate rules. Oversimplification version: Benefit = (tons of GHG avoided) * (SCC, in $/ton). There are couple of quirks, tho. /3

How #American #Elections Work: A Thread👇

The #TrumpCampaign and its allies have filed #lawsuits to try to block some key states from certifying #Election2020results results that show #Democrat @JoeBiden defeating President @realDonaldTrump.

For each #Province and #Territory in #Canada, here is the help that was offered to those living with #disabilities. This will include the #Federal help offered as well as any hoops #PWDs may have needed to jump through to get it and whether CERB was clawed back or not.
This is based on my own research, and if anyone sees anything I missed or may have gotten wrong please let me know.
Let's start with #Yukon
According to several articles, eligible families on #disability supports we're to get up to $400 to help with costs until August. Unknown what eligibility was.
#CERB was exempt from clawbacks.

🔥Today, @Europarl_EN's Committee on Constitutional Affairs (#AFCO) will discuss #transnationallists. Here is why they may not be the good idea we think they are. A thread 👇 1/25
@EPInstitutional @Antonio_Tajani @guyverhofstadt @sandrogozi @d_boeselager @daniel_freund @inside_ep
Many have endorsed TNLs as the way to make our elections more #European, from pro-#EU groups (@federalists, @EMInternational), to politicians (@EmmanuelMacron, @vonderleyen) & advocates (@jonworth, @alemannoEU, @AndrewDuffEU). They argue TNLs will bring a European dimension. 2/25
To be clear, the point of this thread is *not* to argue that TNLs will make our common election less European, simply that they will not remedy the election's core deficiency (that national parties are in control) and that, therefore, they are not the right way forward. 3/25

@jornalextra É isso, minha gente! Não há dinheiro!
Para financiar seu programa assistencialista, #Bolsonaro pretende tirar de quem tem pouco, não dos que ganham muito! #Populismo puro para tentar se reeleger em 2022!
@jornalextra Enquanto isso, o #INSS, autarquia #FEDERAL, ou seja, subordinada a #Bolsonaro, continua fechado por causa da mesma #PANDEMIA do #coronavirus que o presidente #Bolsonaro insiste até hoje em dizer que é só uma #gripezinha!
Por que não reabre, então?!
@jornalextra Filas no #INSS, filas intermináveis na #CaixaEconômica, sem o necessário #distanciamento recomendado pelos #médicos, colocando os mais #pobres em #risco!

Sharing my story of "potential" #COVID19 & attempts to get a test/care.“Potential” bc it's IMPOSSIBLE to be tested in NYC-more below incl call w/hospital that shows strain on health system.Based on Xray/exam my GP is sure I have it.On 3/12 I began experiencing shortness of breath
(2/2) ...also chest tightness, which are all SEVERE #COVID19 symptoms , indicative of pneumonia...I also had a fever. In large part sharing this bc I'm 40 and in v. good health....I surf and do hypoxic training so lungs are fit. False sense of security that only 70+ are in danger
(3/3) Here's the video (Part 1) + some quotes: "Dr: What should I do since the fed govt, state govt and dept of health are no help at all? " //  "NYU: Hospital bed occupancy - it’s definitely looking busy. Both Cornell and Lower Manhattan are on surge level.”

A #CIBIL thread- Long read but I had to vent out. My CIBIL score is 622/900- 96% of loans sanctioned last year have a better score. So bottom of the barrel pretty much 1/13
My financial position- zero debt, 3 active credit cards with no overdues or rollovers EVER, a liquid investment portfolio that allowed me to retire at 46 i.e 5 years ago. Doesn’t scream bottom of barrel does it? So what went wrong? 2/13 #CIBIL
Enter #CITIBANK –I’ve had a CITI card since 1994 with a zero track record of overdues or rollover. In 2011,I was a target of a fraud in New York.For a purchase of 750$ the shopkeeper swiped the card for 1200$. I spotted it immediately got the merchant to reverse it. 3/13 #CIBIL
