After 11 amazing years, today is my last day @scifri. It's been such an incredible team to work with, and I truly consider each and every person there part of my family.

Today we’re at the “Fringe Farming In London” event being run by @UKSustain & @MayorofLondon

Together we’re asking: can we support agro ecological food production in the capital and beyond?

#food #agroecology #farming #periurban
One key question is what is the role of #greenbelt - 22% of London’s land is greenbelt but it is largely seen as a place of recreation rather than as a place of production
Brian from @organiclea suggests the idea of not just a Garden City or a Nation Park City but a Market Garden City....,

So yesterday I was at the Darbar Sahib in Kartarpur, #Pakistan via the Kartarpur Corridor. This photo thread is about my journey to Kartarpur.

I've got a lot of queries already & I'm working on detailed blog posts.

#KartarpurCorridor #Pakistan #MaharajTravels #TraveBlogger
The nearest town to reach Kartarpur Corridor from #India is Dera Baba Nanak which is 2km from the border. Reached here by bus after a 1:30 hrs journey.

#KartarpurCorridor #Pakistan #MaharajTravels #TravelBlogger
Since it was just 2km, I walked from Dera Baba Nanak to the Border terminal. On the way a couple of BSF check posts. Got the first glimpse of Pakistan flag and this is the terminal building.

What did #famers get in #Budget, where @nsitharaman claimed, "Our Govt is committed to the goal of doubling farmers income by 2022"

P.S-Acc to Dalwai committee,"real income of farmer, should increase by 10.4%/year,which has been increasing less than 2.5% in last 5 years
@nsitharaman @_YogendraYadav @aviksahaindia @sayantanbera @seemay @Ghair_Kanooni @Subytweets @sritara @srinivasanravi @DrSarvapriya @RURALINDIA Govt allocates 9.3% of the budget to #Agri, allied,irrigation & #rural development, which was 9.8% last year. Factoring Inflation, Real Increase in allocation is actually negative.

Is this enough ?
Will this increase #farm income, prop up #rural demand ?

@nsitharaman @_YogendraYadav @aviksahaindia @sayantanbera @seemay @Ghair_Kanooni @Subytweets @sritara @srinivasanravi @DrSarvapriya @RURALINDIA @mkvenu1 @PreetiSMenon Govt allocated 1.58 lakh crore to #agri, allied sectors & irrigation i.e. 5.2% of the total budget. Last years budget had allocated 1.52 lakh crore, which was 5.45% of the budget i.e. reduced spending !

👉Will this double #farm income by 2022 ?🙄

🚜🌎💚 Land use, #farming & how this impacts on #ClimateChange is under scrutiny

Today, the Committee on Climate Change (@thecccuk) have launched their new Land Use report

What does it say, does it focus on the right things and is it ambitious enough? ow.ly/HSDC50y2HXK
@theCCCuk @UKSustain @SoilsAlliance @SusFoodTrust @LandworkersUK @FOLUCoalition @GreenerUK_ @GreenAllianceUK @WCL_News @DefraGovUK @NFUtweets The report comes at a time when #farming, #landuse and its impact on #climatechange is under the spotlight like never before.

This @theCCCuk report will be a major influence on what farmers will be rewarded for doing to adapt to climate change. ow.ly/HSDC50y2HXK
Nature must be given equal emphasis in shaping the future of post-#Brexit #farm support, as #farming and #landuse is also the primary driver of global #insect decline and the #biodiversity crash.

I finally finished writing the preface to my #family #cookbook! Maybe someone will be interested in reading this abridged version? I'm hoping to inspire someone to think seriously about their own #cooking#Food is such a big part of our lives. It should make you happy.
« Hey there! I’m writing this to you on January 16, 2020, just over two weeks into the New Year. We decided to create a family cookbook on the 4th, after concluding that a single bullet journal wouldn’t serve such myriad needs well… So that’s the story behind the book itself.
« I love all these people so involved in my life. I dedicate this book to the life we lived together, and the love we shared. Some memories of those have been recorded on these pages, and, I’ve sketched everyone their own profiles, as well.

The list of truly fundamental needs for human life is a short one.

Food is on that list.

@UNRWA #Gaza #Genf

More than half a million people in #Gaza depend on #food #aid. Every quarter there is a discounted ration per person. The #goods are ordered for the first quarter of the new year, but not yet #paid.
Whether the @UN organization can pay the salaries of its 13,000 workers in the #Gaza Strip in December is unclear. In Gaza, under the eyes of #Hamas, @UNRWA operates 276 schools, 22 health centers and distributes food. The unemployment rate is also 41% (Total PA Area 30% 2018).
@UNRWA currently cares for 5.5 million #Palestinians. But they are missing 167 million € to pay everything. It would take at least € 30 million for the current quarter and € 60 million for the second quarter of next year.

"Mach Sport, änder deine Einstellung und ernähr dich gesund, dann erledigt sich das mit den Depressionen, du wirst sehen!"

1. Frühstücken und vom Tisch aufraffen (~2,5h)
2. Sportsachen anziehen und Tasche packen (~30min)
3. Kurz einkaufen (~1h)

Bueno pues...voy a desmontar un vídeo viral , así sin frenos .
El famoso video de la cremallera 198K a algo que no sirve para nada y os voy a contar porqué .
Hay cremalleras de muchas formas , con dientes plásticos , metálicos , invisibles , estancos , etc pero básicamente hay dos maneras de fabricarlas .
Una en continuo , que es un rollo largo , que vas cortando y poniendo cursores , como ésta ...
Y la otra forma es con separador , que van a medida , desde pocos centímetros hasta muchos metros y se separan , como la de las cazadoras ( y la del video) son éstas...

[THREAD] Morning DC, as a 🇪🇺 newly arrived at the @Washinstitute, I’ve been surprised by several things in the current US discussion on #Syria and the fight against #ISIS. I have focused on two in this piece on @thehill: #endlesswars & #burdensharing thehill.com/opinion/intern… 1/
I have indeed heard a lot about the need to stop « #endlesswars » in the #MiddleEast. European can probably see good reasons for this from #Afghanistan to #Iraq, as many of them opposed the war in Iraq. However...2/
Seen from #Europe, #Syria is not one of US #endlesswars, but a low-cost, high-efficiency CT op. It has not been shaped by US intervention, rather by US reluctance to intervene. Europeans who opposed the US-led war in #Iraq consistently called for more U.S. leadership in Syria. 3/

#DidYouKnow Though #AzimPremji was born in #Mumbai, the business journey of his family began in the small town of Amalner in Jalgaon district where his father, Muhammad Hashim Premji had a unit manufacturing vegetable oil and a laundry soap he set up in 1945. #ObserverDiaries
It is said that Jinnah had requested Hashim Premji to migrate to #Pakistan after Partition but he chose to remain in India. Only that vegetable oil unit remains as a token presence of the family's group at Amalner though it has expanded phenomenally in the country and overseas.
Driving through rural northern Maharashtra in Jalgaon district gives one a great idea of how brilliant this monsoon has been for this part of the state. All water bodies are full to the brim, like the Bahula river in the photos, which used to be as dry as a bone! #ObserverDiaries

As world leaders meet for the UN #ClimateSummit2019, here’s a few reminders of why food lies at the heart of the crisis….

Die Tassentheorie, analog zur Löffeltheorie.

CNs für ganzen Thread: #mentalillness, #food (speziell Kaffee und Tee).

Anstatt um einzelne auszugebende Ressourcen geht es hier um den Auslastungszustand kognitiver Ressourcen.
Der Arbeitsspeicher / RAM unserer Gehirne.
#mentalillness #food
Wir stellen uns eine Tasse vor. Mit Kaffee oder Tee.
Morgens wachen gesunde Menschen auf und die Tasse ist leer. Wie ein unausgelasteter, neu gestarteter Rechner.
Dann kommen Gedanken, Erinnerungen, Aufgaben. Einkaufen müssen = ein Schluck Kaffee.

#GaneshChaturthi has been quite the affair at our household from as long as I can remember. What started in 1935 as a celebration to mark the birth of my grandfather, has gone on for 84 years. Home-cooked food has remained an integral aspect of these day-long festivities.

(1/n)
The #GaneshChaturthi pooja, amongst other things, involves a #food offering (नैवेद्य/naivedya).

It started with around 5 items in the first year and an item was added every couple of years. This number bumped up to 32 in1985 and has remained the same ever since. 🍛🍚🥗🥘🥗🍲
It was unanimously decided this year, to pull back on the extravagant celebration for a variety of reasons. Hence, I decided to document it. All these items will still be cooked but never again, in unison. 👩‍🍳

Continue reading to know each of these 32 #food items. 🥗🍲🍚
