"The media wants sources of #revenue apart from what they are getting from #government #ads and lobbies."
Improving Air Quality Communications - Insights by @ravinarajkohli (3/17)

"They (media) have approached us time and time again, and asked if there are any available #funds and why there isn't any #philanthropic money coming for the environment?"

Be vocal about local. Let's start with the possible goods and services available. Use #swadeshi wherever possible. We must ensure that #MakeInIndia should get new vigour. Quality product with apt pricing will do the needful.
#AatmaNirbharBharat does not imply isolationism or becoming exclusionist. We’ll build capacities, skill people and compete globally acquiring strengths. We’ll build the #Local. After all, every global brand began with their #Local strength. We shall integrate with GVCs.
5 Pillars of Self Reliant Bharat
1. Economy
2. Infrastructure
3. Technology driven system
4. Demography
5. Demand
For this we require Land /Labour/Law/Liquidity. #atmanirbharbharat

Today marks two years since the VC Summer #nuclear construction project was suddenly abandoned, quickly becoming one of the largest financial, legal, political and regulatory debacles in the history of South Carolina. Thread (1/?):
A quick search of @thestate's archives show we have since published more than 500 stories, editorials, op-eds, and letters to the editor about VC Summer. I've spent the past two years following the story, with tons of help from @sfretwell83 and others here.
We interviewed sources and reviewed hundreds of thousands of documents to piece together how the project failed, who enabled it and benefited from it and how it had caused the power bills of millions of #SC residents to soar. A few highlights:

This piece is getting a lot closer to key issues we discuss in the #anthropology of #reproduction. A few key issues I would like to note.
1) The concept of #stratifiedreproduction is helpful here. Originally described by Shellee Colen, #stratifiedreproduction describes systematic ways in which some people's #reproduction is valued & nurtured, while others' are devalued & hindered.
2) We've been working w/ this concept since it was put at the center of our emerging field of the #anthropology of #reproduction in 1995 when Faye Ginsburg & Rayna Rapp published the pivotal edited volume "Conceiving the New World Order"

Key finding in Minnesota decarbonization study: the local strategy––maximizing distributed energy resources––saves customers (nearly) the most money. Higher rates but lower use.… #distributedenergy #renewableenergy #local
Bonus: the inexpensive Local Decarbonization scenario also includes 13 gigawatts of rooftop solar PV in Minnesota!
Another bonus: decarbonization insulates Minn. from high gas costs. In a high-cost scenario, shifting to renewable energy saves over $40 billion by 2050!

Went to vote today in the advance polls for #KingTownship today. Hadn't received my registration card in the mail but I went anyhow because #democracy.

I had some questions too.
Upon arriving, I was told that I wasn't registered for #municipal voting, and that it was up to me to make sure that I was registered for every election.

So I filled out my document and registered at the polls. Then I voted, as you do.
Now, my address has been the same for the past 16 years. I've been eligible to vote for the last 6.

So why are my parents the only ones in our household who receive voter cards? Why isn't this data already available? 🤔

Russia and Iran are engaged in disinformation campaigns aimed at US citizens. Twitter just released over 10 million tweets from over 4500 Russian and Iranian accounts engaged in influence operations dating back to 2009. We've analyzed the data. Here's what you need to know...
Russia's influence operations are far-reaching, aimed at a number of countries. This, of course, includes ops aimed at US voters in 2016, but also includes their own people. 58 Russian-language accounts tweeted regional "news" related to Crimea, Syria, and other military action.
44 US-directed local "news" accounts amassed over half a million followers. By using local-sounding news source names, they were able to dupe Americans from *other* regions to share what they thought was authentic news.

Thread: While the world is shaken by the #murder of #Bulgarian journalist #ViktoriaMarinova, it might be a good time to talk about the country itself. #BG ranks lower in #PressFreedom than both #Hungary or #Poland. The country is the poorest and most corrupt in the #EU. 1/13
Yet, the #EU somehow does not think #Bulgaria is a big issue, due to the fact that PM (and ex-bodyguard of #Soviet General Secretary Todor Zhivkov) @BoykoBorissov "behaves", unlike #Orban and #Kaczyński, who openly challenge the Union. Borissov's party is also member of @EPP 2/13
#MediaFreedom-wise, 80% of the print media in the country is owned by MP #Peevski, whose pro-gov tabloids (with the generous help of other pro-gov actors who get nice rewards in return such as property #Blaskov) stifle #opposition and manage vast #antiEU smear campaigns 3/13
