With the release of #DynamicWorld and other #global maps from the last few years, I have some (rambling) thoughts on global products, the challenge of accuracy assessment, and why I think there is still a lot of room for high-quality local/regional predictive mapping (1)
First, these global products are super cool! I played around with Google's DynamicWorld 10 m land cover today and being able to see the probabilities for each class for each pixel is great and being able to do this for every #Sentinel image through time is really unique (2)
However, at #local scales, they can be hit-or-miss, and none are ideal for every need. Some fail to pass a visual inspection (the "eye test") and even the best products require (in my opinion) local quantitative accuracy assessment before use for decision making or in models. (3)

Further clashes are bound to unfold soon in #Tripolitania.


• some #local rivalries have become too tense.

#macro fault lines have shifted too far away from #Libya’s Jun 2020 equilibrium, which so many policymakers & watchers take for granted;

[ see 🧵 thread👇🏻]
One must, right off the bat, acknowledge the outsized importance of #Zawiyah actors in today’s NW Libya configuration.

The most zealous pro-Dabaiba fighters on 5/17 in #Tripoli were led by #Bahrun.

& the #Buzeriba forces (who didn’t fight on 5/17) are ferociously anti-Dabaiba.
Other #local antagonisms that became evident on 5/17 in Tripoli include Mustafa Qaddur’s animosity vs. his #Mukhabarat superior & Dabaiba ally Hussein al-#Ayeb.

Nawassi — which holds a major grudge against Bahrun, too — coordinates w/ Buzeriba & Wershefana’s Muammar al-Dhawi. Image

New #Report Alert!!!

Laying out the 'benefits windfall' from place-based #local #netzero projects and how to unlock their delivery.

Short thread 1/5…
Super-critical because targeting the two areas - #heating and #mobility that we are stalled on in UK #netzero delivery.
Chart shows top two sectors now #transport (navy) and #buildings (heat - pink) - both flat-lined (bar pandemic effects). (2/5)
This work models costs / benefits from bottom-up for 6 UK cities to #decarbonise in 2 scenarios:
- use same #lowcarbon measures everywhere
- tailor to local needs / opportunities

And adds strategic analysis of current situation for #delivery (3/5)

Agents ARE NOT reliant on the Rightmove for the popular myth reasons; sales, traffic and what #local competitors will say.
Portal traffic- "more eyes on listings sells homes better" an embarrassing nonsense; confusing consumers with buyers is the King's new clothes of agency
ANY agent who regularly sells homes to buyers who've wandered into a purchase cold off the internet is NOT an estate agent- case law says so.
Agents who sell to random people they've never met, heard of or qualified are passive in the process. That IS NOT duty of care and skill
I have a way, a detailed and accurate way of measuring user engagement for every home that's listed.

There's about 300 traffics to generate 50 applicants, to generate 10 viewings, to generate a sale.

80% of traffic is unique to an individual listing, only interested in one home

High Representative #Inzko used his so-called Bonn Powers to amend the 🇧🇦 Criminal Code & introduce sanctions for “glorification of war criminals convicted by final and binding judgments and the denial of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes.”

My thread🧵👇🏼1/18
Survivors & families of war victims, individuals & institutions active in human rights, remembering the past & reconciliation #welcomed #Inzko’s #decision. Most of them advocated for such legislative changes for years. Even Inzko promissed them many times to make it happen. (2)
As reported by the #Srebrenica #Memorial, denial & glorification of war crimes, incl.genocide, take place on regular & systematic basis in 🇧🇦 & the region =🇷🇸.
Ministries finance books on or by convicted war criminals, governments commission reports full of denial of facts.. (3)

Excerpts from "'America’s Post-Pandemic Geography' - Covid-19 is transforming all types of communities, from big cities to suburbs to rural areas" - from the Summer 2021 Issue of @CityJournal - by @Richard_Florida & @joelkotkin. A #Thread.

1. "The #Pandemic will pass...But in geographic terms, today’s Covid-precipitated crises may well prove to be the most transformative event that #America has experienced since the great migration to the suburbs after World War II."
2. "....centrifugal forces pull some people out of #Cities: families seek more #Affordable space, backyards, and access to better schools. With the wider scope of choice that #RemoteWork affords, some are casting their nets wider and moving farther afield..."

#Local| Esta mañana fueron encontrados sin vida los cuerpos de dos hombres dentro de una vivienda en la colonia San Jorge, cantón Tapalchucut del municipio de Izalco, Sonsonate.

Las autoridades han informaron que dichas personas presentan señales de haber sido ultimados dentro de sus vivienda por sujetos desconocidos, durante la noche o madrugada.
Luego de las primeras inspecciones, la Policía presume que las víctimas podrían pertenecer a estructuras que delinquen en el sector, esa podría ser la hipótesis principal del doble.

CINTAILAH. Ajakan Pak @jokowi untuk benci produk asing sebagai bentuk dukungan #produk #lokal tentu memiliki motif baik. Ini juga seiringan dengan tren #konsumen #dunia selama #pandemi. Namun, kebangkitan "#lokalisme" ini justru didasari #cinta bukan #benci. Kita bahas👇
#Lokalisme, menjadi suatu tren yang ditimbulkan akibat #pandemi #COVID19. Riset dari @Kantar, menyebutkan bahwa ada gejala #konsumen di #dunia cenderung lebih memilih #brand dan #produk dari dalam #negeri-nya sendiri. Mengapa?

#local #lokal #jokowi #umkm #perdagangan #asing
Kini, #konsumen di #dunia ikut melibatkan faktor #emosi dalam membeli #produk. Kehadiran #brand lokal yang masih mungil tapi mudah direach memberi peluang konsumen untuk diapproach lebih #personal oleh si #brand. Ada #intimacy dari relasi keduanya.

Currencies have always been a promise of some sort, and the value of the currency depends ultimately on the value of that promise.

Now the REALLY interesting thing about this observation is that we can all make our own promises too.

Hear me out:
The promise of gold and silver coinage was that the coins were pure and of a certain weight, and that the metal would continue to be in demand and supply would be limited - even though this promise was broken occasionally, e.g. by Mansa Musa or the Conquistadores.
The promise of gold-standard currencies is that they would remain convertable to gold, which layered another breakable promise on top of the previous promise of gold being a stable store of value. This promise has been broken too, most famously by US president Nixon in 1971.

Adapting streets to a "six-foot-city" is certainly a question of geometry & space, but also how to govern that space, how to develop capacity to deliver #humanscale networks.
3 principles explored in our latest commentary

Principle 1 for #humanscale streets: leverage #accessibility to meaningful destinations. Entire street networks that offer a range of mobility options need to be realized. Image
Principle 2 for #humanscale streets: Empower #local policy networks to nurture public and political support for improved accessibility at the human scale. #citizenscience #datadriven #CommunityEngagement

👇1/X: A thread on why #opensource financial tools consisting of local apps that protect your #privacy are a necessity in today's world of constant hacks and data leaks.


In a world dominated by closed source SaaS someone has to freaking say it!👹
2/X: What does #opensource mean? Why should the user care?

Opensource means that the tool is #transparent and #auditable about what it does. The code is open for all to see and judge.

The user can then verify (probably through other experts) that all claims of the tool are true
3/X: What does "protecting your privacy" mean?

Protecting your privacy DOES NOT MEAN having a freaking privacy policy🤦💩

No organization intends to leak user data. Yet it happens all the time

Financial data are among the most sensitive data we got. Hacks can lead to targeting
