How about a Friday-night thread for Quentin Tarantino’s birthday, today? 🔥

My 5 Favorite Things About QT:

#1: He’s a master of suspense. ‘What’s in Marcellus’s briefcase?’ ‘What’s behind the screen door?’

“Once Upon A Time in .. Hollywood” (2019)
#2: .. Tarantino gets a lot of flack for being, shall we say, “wordy”.

But he’s actually one of the savviest purveyors of SILENCE.

“Pulp Fiction” (1994)
... In “Pulp Fiction”, Mia even complains about silence.

“Don’t you hate that?”

“Hate what.”

“Uncomfortable silence.”

No one who isn’t a true believer is supposed to watch something like this because it is so toxic and insane that it discredits everyone else who works at the network and makes it a little too obvious that Fox is an insane propaganda channel.

After the news of Yes Bank's AT1 Bonds going to zero a thread on Capital Structure of a Bank (any typical Bank)

cc @teasri @deepakshenoy @andymukherjee70 @IndradeepKhan @RajeevthePawar
(#FF all above handles for Indian Finance)
Any Bank is an extremely leveraged entity.
It has source of funds -> Equity Investment, and Debt (in simplest of cases from retail deposits)
Use of funds -> lends out to different borrowers.

Banks have 2 main functions
- Creating Credit (lending money)
- Creating Duration
Simplest Example
Bank A has $10 of Equity Capital (10 share holders of 1$ each)
Has $90 of Depositors (90 retail depositors depositing $1 each) and with this $100 it has made loans to 100 different customers of $1 each.

This bank seems very well diversified on both sides.

👀While the #coronavirus epidemic continues ... it is worthwhile pausing to consider what agendas – and I mean which #NWO agendas – are being rolled out using the epidemic as a cover or pretext.

1⃣ Centralized Control Of Information, I.E. Censorship And Narrative Control

“National governments are considering or have already implemented a range of interventions to combat misinformation"

#Censorship #NarrativeControl
2⃣ The Cashless Agenda

China 🇨🇳 has jumped on the opportunity to forward the #cashless agenda by claiming that paper money must now be taken out of circulation due to the possibility that it could contain traces of COVID-19

This is a great day for feminists everywhere, pan-African feminists and feminists around the world! A High Court quashed her conviction and sentencing. She has been in prison for a poem deemed “cyber harassment” about #Ugandan dictator Yoweri Museveni
In August 2019, the feminist scholar, activist and poet was sentenced to 18 months in prison for writing a poem wishing that Museveni’s mother’s birth canal had poisoned him during birth. Read the poem @drstellanyanzi wrote from prison and #BeBoldLikeNyanzi
Dr. Stella Nyanzi is one of my heroes. Her insistence on profanity in the face of patriarchy and dictatorship - the real profanity, the real offense, the real vulgarity - is legendary.

Fuck the patriarchy, everywhere. Fuck dictatorship, everywhere.

1. Za pseudonimem #AdamNieznaj ukrywa się lubelski działacz KPN Andrzej Nowak. Andrzej Nowak jest biegłym sądowym w zakresie systemów monitoringu satelitarnego (GPS/GPRS ), ustanowionym do 2023 w SO w Lublinie. W wolnych chwilach do spółki z #KastaWatch hejtuje sędziów.
2. Prywatnie #AdamNieznaj jest dobrym znajomym sędziego Roberta Pelewicza. Robert #Pelewicz bez powodzenia kandydował do #neoKRS. Wg Nieznaja "potraktowali go jak ciało obce", bo "nie musiał ich prosić o podpisy", "bo sam zebrał".
3. Sędzia Pelewicz jest - wg Nieznaja - znajomym S.Piotrowicza. Poparcie to jakoby niewiele daje, bo "ZZ dostał MS w ajencję" a kto nie jest z ekipy ZZ - "ten ma pod górkę" - radiomaryjny Pelewicz znajduje się poza rozdaniem: najpierw nie trafia do #neoKRS, potem nie trafia do SN

Short thread on Irish election #GE2020 for my non-Irish followers. 1. #FF the party that informed Peter Mair’s ‘cartel party’ will not be a cartel party again. It will never regain its pre-crash standing. 2. SF emerged as the largest party in vote terms. @BrigidLaffan
The performance of #SF was a surprise given their 2019 EP & local elections performance but they managed to frame a manifesto that really resonated with the electorate @BrigidLaffan
The election was not about BREXIT but domestic issues-housing & health were the top two. Irish voters not concerned about jobs or the economy for the first time in 10 years. @BrigidLaffan

Servus beinand neue Folx! [& 1 #ff an die p.t. Regulars der Timeline!] Nach dem IT- & Cyberscheiß des Tages gibts abends öfter Sowas: 2 Verticals für Kurzwelle wiegen sich im Südwind 1/2
Und so schaut das bei Sonne aus. Die am Balkon wird grade neu abgestimmt, dann kommt sie ebenfalls aufs Dach. Ziel ist es, mit 14-30 MHz getakteten Wechselstrom, Leistung 1 KW möglichst verlustarm hineinzujagen. 2/3 #SteampunkRulezOK
Dafür braucht es robuste Eigenbau-Spulen & Kondensatoren mit einer Überschlagsfestigkeit >3KV. Das kommt bei Gelegenheit mal. Hier noch das ganze Antennenidyll. Wie man sieht ist noch 1e Säule frei als Träger ;)

1. Hey all, I try not to make these appeals too often, but I'm going to thread some of my recent achievements and ask you to support me via @Patreon, if you value my work and can afford to pay even just a few dollars a month for it:

@Patreon 2. I need your help to remain a full-time writer, speaker, commentator, and advocate, because as of yet, at least, those things bring in some money, but not enough to pay the bills.

First on the list of recent accomplishments of course is the #EmptyThePews anthology:
@Patreon 3. Most of you are aware that I coedited this essay collection with @laureneoneal, and that we worked on it for years to bring the project to fruition…

What you may not know is that royalties will be paid quarterly and almost certainly won't pay the bills

Put option insurance and how to use it: You have heard me mention put insurance, but how does it work, and how should you deploy and manage your put?

We can start with breaking down what buying a put on btc can actually do for you and how to manage your entry.

Let’s dig in...
If bitcoin is at $8300 and you want to hedge downside risk. Maybe you are getting a bit worried and you like the idea of buying some insurance to sleep well

You could start by buying an $8300 strike put. Enough contracts to match the about of btc you own and want to cover/insure
Next you will want to decide on how long you want your insurance put. How long are you worried about your investment?

Maybe you want to be insured until after the halving so you buy a put that expires in say December of 2020. With a strike price of $8300.

All set, now what?

Love and solidarity with all who’ve sent me support and all who’ve been fighting mostly white British transphobes who have been embarrassing themselves in my mentions for 3 days because I support trans and non-binary rights and because I insist feminism must be intersectional.
If you’ve followed me for a while you know I’m attacked by a new flavour of fuckery every other week-from Saudi & Egyptian regime trolls to white Australian misogynists to racists to Islamophobes & now making proud entrance as flavour of the week fuckery:white British “feminists”
These transphobes - vile, pathetic and poorly disguised racists - are exactly why “white feminism” is deservedly derided. They insist on centering themselves and insist that feminism revolve around the misogyny that touches only their lives. And fuck anyone else.

"That article from Christianity Today did not reflect an overall shift in evangelical politics. It reflects—as one New Yorker article calls it—'a more urban, internationalist, and broad-minded elite class within the evangelical movement.'”…

Here's the kicker

"If anything, it will only serve to draw progressive-minded city dwellers to evangelical churches that may be anti-Trump, but are also anti-LGBTQ+ marriage, and anti-abortion, and anti-female autonomy. Anti-any-belief-system-but-evangelical."

#FF @gloriousbeth
@gloriousbeth "It’s not a good thing. It could never be a good thing. But people aren’t as afraid of evangelicalism as they should be."

Follows & Unfollows - #FF & #UFF 2020

Isn’t Friday, but if you are in #crypto, want a balanced,well-informed view & are looking for accounts to follow,I suggest both a list of follows & mutes to avoid the cult.Opinion only! My suggestions:

#bitcoin $BTC #CT $crypto #blockchain
The Follows:

#CT accounts I genuinely respect or provide value mixed with some I do not agree with at all that are key to #bitcoin. Some will still spam you with typical propaganda from time to time, but at least they eat their own medicine and are undeniably core to $BTC

Big year for activism, hostile takeovers, and activist-driven governance buy-ins/buybacks in Japan.

I ripped on King Street's efforts on Toshiba in March.
The overwhelming presence of active foreigners on the register won a new slate of directors, including more independents - a win.

I should have spared a few minutes to rip on Fir Tree's efforts on Kyushu Rail (9142) because while perhaps warranted, they were un-good.
We saw multiple hostile Corporate actions on other corporates this year. Itochu had owned 25% of Descente for years and had relations for 50yrs, but for 5yrs the founder's descendent CEO had been pulling away. So Itochu went hard.

The @huffpost breaking news team has had an incredible year. They've quickly, accurately & thoroughly covered breaking news events, from the Notre Dame fire to multiple mass shootings in 24 hours. And they've produced some really important work.

Here's some! (THREAD)
@HuffPost We have a worldwide team, which means our reporters do on-the-ground work outside of bigger cities & can bring local expertise to so many stories.

I loved this piece from Denver-based @G_nobes about GOP recall efforts against Tom Sullivan in Colorado:…

THREAD: A lot of folks are rightfully worried about *tech* companies like Amazon and Google gaining access to their health data.

But here are some legal, and very common, ways that *health care* companies are already taking advantage of your data:
1. It’s been reported that the health insurance industry has tapped brokers to shore up personal details about your education level, TV habits and more. They collect what you post and order to make predictions about your health:…
2. Data brokers routinely buy “de-identified” (not the same as anonymized) data from health systems, and sell it to third-parties. That data is not subject to the HIPAA rules. IQVIA alone claims to have more than 600m non-identified patient records.…
