Thread: 1/The US conducted a raid yesterday in north west #Syria, killing a senior #ISIS leader responsible for planning terror attacks in the Middle East and #Europe.
2/The attack happened in a region controlled by #Turkey, where many #Antiochian #Greeks used to live. They were known for their contributions in education, medical services, and goldsmithing, but few of them remain today, and they suffer daily from #Islamic groups operating under……
3/ It's troubling to see a #NATO country supporting one of the most notorious groups in the world, and we call on the #Greek and #Cypriot governments to use all the leverage they have to save and rescue the #Greek #Orthodox and other #Christian groups that still live in this……

Been seeing a spike in anti-Greek hatred lately in the context of the #ParthenonMarbles discussion. One historian, @ZareerMasani says of the #Greeks that there is little doubt we would return a “loan” of the marbles. Are the #Greeks deadbeats? Liars perhaps?
@ZareerMasani published his disgraceful piece in the @spectator.…
Another historian, @Mario_Trabucco, seems to believe the #Greek people who wish the return of the #ParthenonMarbles are greedy or perhaps jealous because we apparently want something that isn’t ours. He even quotes scripture!

strange piece about #kurdistan in #iraq. the 2017 referendum was a political calculation of the #barzani clan to distract from domestic problems and rally people around the flag, the clans in charge are extremely nepotist and corrupt, and not progressive.…
the #kurdistan region in #iraq is *not* a model of democracy, and also not of religious freedom: christians, yezidis or others who don't align with the ruling #clans and mainly the #barzani clan (posing as political party #kdp) have nothing to say.
whenever i think of #kurdistan in #iraq breaking away as just one piece of a much larger kurdistan, i can't stop but thinking of what repercussions it may have for #kurds elsewhere in authoritarian states. ultimate repercussion, i mean, as an echo from history.

#Greece applied the 3-mile criterion from the 1923 Treaty of Lausanne to 1936.
Greece, which has been applying the six-mile criterion since 1936, has long opposed the expansion of its territorial seas and defended the "principle of freedom of the seas" until the 1970s! Image
#Greece even vigorously defended these opinions at the 1st and 2nd Law of the Sea Conferences.After 1970 she began to openly reveal her true expansionist intentions.
At the last naval conference she made a great effort to ensure that 12 NM was not a maximum but a fixed principle. Image
However, she did not succeed. Article 3 of UNCLOS titled "Territorial Waters" states that "Each State has the right to determine the breadth of its territorial waters from the baselines determined in accordance with this Convention to a limit not exceeding 12 NM".

Being a superpower isn’t just economical or military.
It’s a brand.
And a brand that should sell.
And history has shown that all great powers were brands that sold. And the humans of earth bought with their heaters and minds.
#superpower #world
Quite simply, now, #Russia and #China haven’t made themselves institute strong brands
The #Chinese are lately realising this. The #Russians no
They won’t
Not how they work and think
Being super BRAND power means humans of Earth wanting to be like the citizens of a superpower.
Being a super #BRAND power means your educational institutions, #lifestyle, #habitus, #culture, #language, #food, #traditions EVERYTHING is presented as the best on the planet.
And it usually is.
In the superpower game, 💩 sells some of the time. Not all.

We Need To Protect #Türkiye From Suffering The Same Fate As #Andalusia !

Modern history represents how the #Secularist & #Capitalist #Europe was established while Islam & #IslamicCivilization was grounded to a halt .
After centuries of painful experiences Europe finally realized that it would establish itself on the stage of history unless it shattered the world-guiding global siege of Islamic civilization .

1/4 An extreme rare and widely unknown event of #humanity during the #SmyrnaHolocaust. In #Smyrna, now #Izmir the #Greek and #Armenian #Christian residents were forced to the docks to escape, many though met their deaths, the #Japanese ship Tokei Maru was one of the first to help
2/4 At the time, some Allied warships were in the harbor, along with many merchant ships. But most of them refused to pick up refugees. Amidst all the chaos, a #Japanese freighter was reported to have unloaded all its precious cargo to take on as many refugees as it could
3/4Tokei Maru rescued many #Greeks and #Armenians in the face of Chaos, loss of cargo and reported threats. The bravery of the Tokei Maru and her crew is to be admired, an act of #humanityoverhatred. Smyrna was almost completely burned and it's #Christians exiled and exterminated

#Learning #Options #Greeks
A layman explanation of option Greeks
a) Delta :
i) If delta is +0.6, it means if underlying changes by 1 unit the option changes by +0.6 units.
ii) Delta of long Call is positive (0 to 1) and long put is negative (-1 to 0)
iii) Delta of ATM call option is 0.5, ITM is between 0.5 to 1 and OTM is 0 to 0.5. ( -ve for puts)

b) Gamma :
i) If gamma is 0.10, it means if underlying changes by one unit the delta changes by 0.10 units .
ii) Gamma of long options is always positive and gamma....
of short options are always -ve irrespective of call or put.
c) Theta :
I) Theta of long option is always negative and short option is always positive.
ii) If theta is -4, it means, the option price decays by 4/252 = 0.016 per day.
iii) Theta of put is always higher than

History of Armenian Genocide memorial construction - 1965-1967… ImageImageImageImage
Descendants of #ArmenianGenocide victims were silent in USSR, talks of the past were prohibited. Up today I don't know where they come from Western Armenia, because no one dared to talk even inside our family. History was kept in memories of older ppl, who were passing away.
All until 50th anniversary of arrest of 270 Armenian elite of Ottoman Empire - political figures, composers, poets, writers. Among them was Grigor Zohrap, parliament member from Constantinople, writer & lawyer, whose head was smashed with stone during detention. Image

#Option #Greeks Simplified

#Options are definitely more complicated than equity or futures.

Their prices don’t just go up and down.

They also fluctuate based on things like #time, #implied #volatility and #underlying stock movements.
#Options #Greeks Are Simply Mathematical Shortforms

Most of you would remember from school that mathematical formulas sometimes were #Greek letters like Pi and #Delta. The same is true for options.

Don’t let them overwhelm you or scare you.
They’re simply #mathematical words to explain some very basic principles.

#Greeks Describe the Behavior of #Individual #Options

Each #greek can help predict how it will behave under different circumstances and how options prices would change.

Any recognition of the 1915 Genocide against #Armenians, #Greeks, #Chaldeans, #Assyrians, & #Syriacs-#Arameans must include #Kurds as co-criminals of the Genocide. Kurds murdered/raped/forcibly expelled 2.5 million Christians during the 1915 Armenian/Christian Genocide.
This book, “Shall This Nation Die,” by Chaldean Catholic Priest Naayem, an eyewitness to horrors of 1915 Christian Genocide, documents key role of Kurds in committing genocide against indigenous Middle East Christians. @reaIDonIdJTrump @POTUS @EmmanuelMacron @VP @SecPompeo
@reaIDonIdJTrump @POTUS @EmmanuelMacron @VP @SecPompeo Pg 124- “Kurdish tribes in Sairt, the terror of Christians in these regions, had attacked the Christian town with intention of...massacring Christians.” Pg 139: “From top of a high mountain we saw at a distance 100s of Kurds men & women on the watch for their Christian prey...”

The God of #Options #Greeks is often disregarded and has no mercy, especially on #Options #expiration day.

A #Thread on #Gamma.

The primary feature of #Options is their non-linear payout.

Most traders understand that #OptionsPricing is dependent on the price of the underlying, but the response is non-linear. #Gamma is the variable that describes this non-linearity.

Loosely, if #Delta is the speed of the #Options position, #Gamma is the acceleration.
