This seems timely.

Some context for anyone reporting on or concerned about droughts in #Europe, the #USA or elsewhere.

'Corn isn’t the only US crop suffering under hot and dry conditions in the Great Plains. Sorghum and millet, which are grown in areas currently hit by drought, look set to be hurt as well.'

CBN ‘Ways and Means’ loan to the FG rise to N20 trillion as of June 2022

The Central Bank of Nigeria has extended a total sum of N19.9 trillion circa (N20 trillion) in loans to the Federal Government under its Ways and Means provision as included in the CBN Act.

Thread 1/9
The Ways and Means provision allows the government to borrow from the Apex Bank if it needs short-term or emergency finance to fund delayed government expected cash receipts of fiscal deficits.

Provisions in the act cap monetary financing of fiscal deficits at 5%...

2/9
....of the prior year’s revenues.

However, since the government started experiencing a significant shortfall in revenue,

It has relied heavily on the central bank to finance its expenditure programs via Ways and Means.

According to the central bank’s....

"Argument-Making in the Wild"

Today's SFI Seminar by Simon DeDeo (@LaboratoryMinds), streaming now. Follow our thread for pull quotes and slides:

First, let's divide human history into three eras, or regimes of #knowledge #production and #consumption:

• #premodern/#archaic
• #modern + #postmodern
• the #egregore (online content sharing)

• The premodern era is defined by caloric restriction.
• The modern era is characterized by a small number of sellers of #information vs. a large number of consumers (see also #HerbertSimon's remarks on the "poverty of #attention")

“La settimana che cambiò l’Italia: dalle dimissioni respinte a quando ha rassegnato il mandato”

🔺 A poche ore dalla caduta del Governo si sfaldano le innumerevoli idiozie divulgate *da quelli* secondo cui è stato #Draghi a volere la fine del #governoDraghi

👇
Secondo il #premier, la #crisidigoverno è stata un «divorzio unilaterale», deciso dal #centrodestra dopo l’«ingenuità» del #M5S

- riporta oggi Francesco Verderami in un articolo sul Corriere

#dimissioni #elezionianticipate
#Salvini e #Berlusconi hanno sfruttato l’occasione offerta da #Conte (…)
È l’imperizia del Movimento ad aver compromesso irrimediabilmente l’equilibrio

Senza la sciocchezza del Movimento il #governoDraghi avrebbe proseguito

Normale giornata ma @ChiaraFerragni scatena un putiferio #milano e #criminalità #ferragni 😃
Proviamo a chiarire con un breve #thread
1) La criminalità cala da anni in Italia. Oggi abbiamo il più basso tasso di omicidi in Europa.
Mappa veloce da shorturl.at/afpQ1 Image
2) Per quelli "ma calano le #denunce!". Ipotesi scarsamente supportata dai dati (deboli) disponibili.
L'ultima indagine di vittimizzazione di @istat_it del 2019 (dati 2015-16) mostra propensione speriore o uguale alla precedente (2008-2009).

istat.it/it/files/2019/… Image
3) "ma questi sono dati, fuori c'è la vita reale". La nostra esperienza personale non dà elementi per dare giudizi generali (@francescocosta, era stamattina su morning?).
Inoltre la nostra percezione è influenzata dai #media.

#THREAD

#quartadose: per il Comitato Internazionale per l'#Etica della Biomedicina è parte di una strategia che non persegue scopi di natura medica ma l'introduzione di #greenpass e strumenti "premiali" in campi diversi (#energia #ambiente #acqua) sul modello del #creditosociale
In un nuovo parere, CIEB sostiene che "quando al ricatto vaccinale si sostituirà per legge un ricatto diverso (es: “se non compri il gas sul mercato libero non avrai il pass per lavorare”; “se non compri le sementi OGM per le tue coltivazioni non potrai uscire dal tuo comune”;
“se non concordi con una determinata visione della storia, tuo figlio non potrà frequentare la scuola pubblica”), la portata effettiva dell’affaire #Covid apparirà evidente anche a chi ritiene ancora oggi difficile credere che un #governo che ha giurato fedeltà alla Costituzione

Canadese premier #JustinTrudeau en de Nederlandse premier #MarkRutte "golden pin-up boys" voor #KlausSchwab en de globalistische fantasten van het #WorldEconomicForum
Montage door #RebelNews van het plan van #MarkRutte om de agenda van '#theGreatReset' uit te voeren.
Ook beschreven in het boek van #KlausSchwab waarbij de psychopate aartsleugenaar beweerde dat boek niet te kennen.
⬆️
Het geheugen, de #politiek en moraal van #MarkRutte werkt elke dag anders.
De inhoud van z'n briefje aan #KlausSchwab van de vorige dag kan verschillen met z'n opvattingen van vandaag.
Maar z'n fascistische en perverse agenda staat als een #WEF-huis.

Live: Just 5 people watch on YouTube live broadcast of the Maidan massacre trial in #Ukraine. Trial completed examination of all evidence & now starts closing arguments. It revealed overwhelming evidence about massacre of protesters by Maidan snipers. 1/
But various politicians, #media & self-proclaimed experts, who falsely claim that Berkut police or government snipers massacred Maidan protesters & that existence of Maidan snipers is conspiracy theory, need no evidence from trial of century in #Ukraine 2/ researchgate.net/publication/35…
Even absolute majority of wounded Maidan protestors testified at Maidan massacre trial or investigation in #Ukraine that they were shot by snipers in Maidan-controlled buildings & areas or witnessed snipers there. Prosecution denies snipers existence! 3/

“L’acqua non è un diritto”
L’affermazione (del pres.di Alfa srl) che in altri tempi sarebbe stata giudicata lesiva di dignità e diritti umani fondamentali, nell’Italia post #Covid e pre-razionamenti da #climatechange e/o guerra in #Ucraina, incontra l’ignavia delle istituzioni
👇
la compiacenza dei #media e la complicità del #governo in carica: il #GreenPass fondato su #obbligovaccinale, ha infatti sdoganato la negoziabilità di diritti e libertà inviolabili perché innati nell’essere umano, quali il diritto alla #vita e alla tutela della #salute.
👇
Così l’Osservatorio contro la Transizione Ecogica in un nuovo parere sulla “pretesa #emergenzaidrica” in cui si denuncia il continuo ricorso a stati di #emergenza (sanitaria, strategica, climatica, ambientale, energetica), secondo il metodo del biopandemismo per giustificare

#KremenchukMall - 5 QUESTIONS:

1/ What shutter speed should a camera have to freeze the movement of the projectiles of the explosion? 1/500th, 1/1000th 1/2000th?

#NATO #WarInUkraine - #falseflag?

Source:
2/Can a surveillance camera film with such speed?

#NATO #WarInUkraine #KremenchukMall - #falseflag?
3/ What is the speed of a missile? Is it possible to film it without any motion blur? (Motion and focus blur less than focus blur/quality of rest of scene)

1/ Era proprio #Galli tra le prime #virostar ad insistere per l‘imposizione ai #sanitari del #sierosperimentale …. una mia reazione pubblica sui social a gennaio 2021 alle sue dichiarazioni e con la quale ho annunciato una battaglia legale a tutela della popolazione e in primis
2/ dei #sanitari, ha provocato un rimprovero pubblico da parte del presidente del mio #ordineprofessionale con un articolo a mio carico sul più grande quotidiano di lingua italiana in #AltoAdige e al servizio del #sistemaautoritario

Here’s an interesting problem regarding the #aesthetics in reproduction of #digital #image|s. (Interesting to me, at least, and also, maybe, to people like @_menkman, @jbirken, @Sierra_Offline, @kevindriscoll and @GIFmodel). 1/38
What I’ll say is true for all digital images, in a way. (And more generally, for all works of art.) But I want to focus on one type of images and on one set of aesthetic qualities in particular here. 2/38
The problem that’s bothering me is this: What is the proper way to show an early digital #screen image in #print? (Reproduced as a figure in an academic monograph, for example.) 3/38

There is NEVER a justification for violence towards medical professionals.

Perpetuating Fear & #Stigma is NOT beneficial

It's rare for individuals in #Pain to strike out in violence at medical professionals.

Does it happen? Yes.

Should it? NO!
The ONLY way to prevent future occurrences is to understand WHY it is happening & avoid Fear Mongering & casting aspersions on a population of patients who are experiencing Systemic #Discrimination.

Under & Untreated patients experiencing unremitting pain are more likely to Image
Three cases of people committing such an extreme act of violence is NOT a trend & is NOT reflective of the #PainPatient population as a whole.

There are an estimated 50 million people living with #ChronicPain.

These cases are anomalies, the Root Cause needs to be addressed

🧵 #media & Meghan

Two things in yesterday's Twitter feed cheered me up no end. Marcus Rashford's engagement (I know, late to the game, but just happy for the happiness of an excellent lad) & the public cheers for Harry & #Meghan. Yes, not world politics. Stay with me.

We all know that Meghan has been receiving disproportionate negative coverage - the distortions, lies, and libel are obvious, and evidenced - as in this comparison with coverage of Kate:

This reminded me of a video by German YouTuber Rezo on Germany's yellow press.

In January, he showed & commented on a video by YouTuber Rob Bubble who read 20 of over 200 German yellow press magazines for a whole year.

Although conspiracy thinking is of all times, we now face a different kind of #conspiracy theories: conspiracy without theory. 1/
The increased visibility of conspiracy thinking at the time of the COVID-19 pandemic seems to be partly explained by the need for certainty in uncertain times. But there is more going. 2/
There is a distinction between classical conspiracy thinking and the new conspiracy thinking. Classical conspiracy thinking aims to offer an alternative explanation for a major event, sometimes by following journalistic or even scientific standards. 3/

LE PROBLÈME AVEC LES ACTIONNAIRES DES MÉDIAS FRANÇAIS

Fait 1 : c'est connu, les médias de masse privés sont concentrés dans quelques mains en France
Comme ils s'agit de médias officiellement privés, ils peuvent légalement être partisans s'ils le souhaitent, comme TF1 en 2001, le Monde en 2016-2017, Cnews en 2021.

Mais dans les 20 dernières années, c'est une élection présidentielle sur deux qui en a été bouleversée.
Fait 2 : les entreprises concernées dépendent toutes fortement de l'Etat. Pas juste comme une banque ou un constructeur automobile. C'est même systématiquement ce que ce pays a de plus stratégique et de plus sensible comme grandes entreprises (Telecom, BTP, armes, Françafrique).

The #TIME100 most influential leaders this year features, obviously, both #Zelensky & #Putin.

One is destroying lives of many millions of people.
The other shows us true leadership, bravery and how the fight for #freedom - the essential right we take for granted - unites us

1/4
This war exposed many people, revealed our values, allowed us to reevaluate them.

On the #TIME100, therefore, are Von Der Leyen, Biden and Scholtz - all playing a BIG ROLE in the evolution and progression of the war. Note, inclusion on the list is not an endorsement

2/4
Russia, the invader, purposely ignores all #humanitarian laws, the army has no morals and knowingly commits #genocide.

The bravery of Ukrainian people, coupled with the exceptional command by #Zaluzhnyy, allowed them to beat all predictions by war experts worldwide
