Megalopolis x #Russia: Total War by Pepe Escobar…

After careful evaluation, the Kremlin is rearranging the geopolitical chessboard to end the unipolar hegemony of the “indispensable nation”.

Operation Z is the first salvo of a titanic struggle: three decades after the fall of the USSR, and 77 years after the end of WWII, after careful evaluation, the Kremlin is rearranging the geopolitical chessboard to end the unipolar hegemony of the “indispensable nation”.

Now Out in Paperback! “#China Goes to #Sea: #Maritime Transformation in Comparative Historical Perspective”…

@NavalWarCollege @ChinaMaritime is proud to publish this new version w/ @NavalInstitute @USNIBooks!

Come for the #maps, stay for the #history...
Honored to have #JonathanSpence’s endorsement:

“The maritime #history of #China has long been a neglected field..China Goes to Sea bring[s] that knowledge-gap to an end..will be an indispensable companion to those readers seeking to understand where China’s navy may be heading.”
As European #naval powers & even the @USNavy struggle with ship numbers, #China has gone to #sea.

Represents the reversal of a great historical trend that began 600 years ago, when China withdrew from the seas & European naval expansion spread Western influence around the globe.

We're still at sea waiting for a port of safety for the 440 people onboard our #SeaWatch3, but the year is coming to an end and it's time to draw some conclusions: Image
The humanitarian catastrophe in the #Mediterranean continues and compared to last year, the death toll has increased. While the #EU nearly stopped state-run sea rescues, together with the #CivilFleet we tried to close the deadly rescue gap at least a bit in 2021. Image
Hardly noticed by the public, for many people in search of safety, and in the absence of safe and legal escape routes, only the life-threatening crossing from #Libya over the central Mediterranean remains. Image

لا تزال أمام #فقمة_الراهب فرصةٌ للاحتفاظ بمسكنها المهدّد على شاطئ #عمشيت. فقد نفّذ أهالي المنطقة إلى جانب جمعيات بيئية، الأحد الفائت، وقفةً تحت شعار «عمشيت لؤلؤة المتوسّط» تأكيداً على ضرورة حماية «#مغارة_الفقمة» من الهدم.
#انقراض #بيئة #البحر_الأبيض_المتوسط #لبنان
طالب الأهالي بتصنيف مغارات شاطئ #عمشيت كمحمية طبيعية، فيما شدّد المهندس فريد أبي يونس على فرادة المنطقة وفرصة تطويرها كمعلمٍ سياحيّ متوسّطيّ، وذلك بعدما تقدّم بشكوى وقف أعمال بناء الفيلا الخاصّة في العقار 345 المحاذي للمغارة.
يُذكَر أن الورشة التي تهدّد المغارة كانت قد توقّفت إلى حين دراسة أثرها البيئي، وأنّ «#فقمة_الراهب»- أكبر فقمات المتوسّط، مهدّدة بالانقراض وتقصد مغارات محدّدة على ضفاف المتوسّط للتكاثر، بينها «#مغارة_الفقمة» في #عمشيت.

To understand 🦇#behaviour during ❄️we used #batacoustics and weather information in #wetlands, #ricepaddies, 🌆 areas, & #saltmarshes from one of the biggest Deltas in Western Europe (Ebro Delta). @PDE @parcscat @govern @HumedalesDelta @ecologistescat @FBiodiversidad

1- The most recorded #batspecies was #pipistrelluspygmaeus
2- 🦇were active during the 83% of our total recorded nights (469) mainly using #wetlands & 🌆areas

LFD studies are not great (small n, high bias, heterogeneity), but all the studies do suggest that the LFD is a good treatment option for #IBS and can improve global symptoms, pain, and bloating
App-based low-FODMAP #diet was found to be more effective (71%) than antispasmodic therapy (61%) in #IBS, even 6 months out

Estimating the monetary cost of #invasivespecies has never been easy, but it can have great scientific and practical value! In our special @Invacost issue we've collected research on #biologicalinvasions costs from all over the world 1/21 Image
Taken together, all publications in this issue estimate global realized and potential economic impacts of #biologicalinvasions around US$2.3 trillion, but a lot of the costs remain underreported. 2/21 @FranzEssl1 @garciaberthou

More in our editorial:…
In Africa🌍, reported costs of #biologicalinvasions ranged between US$ 18.2 billion and US$ 78.9 billion between 1970 and 2020 - a massive, yet highly underestimated economic burden for African countries. 3/21 @CABI_News @Akademie_ved_CR

On this day in May, a stranger offered to take my photo as I lay on the rocks on the "beach" in Nice, France.
Later, I was curious as to why there were so many people at the train station and then saw actress #TildaSwinton standing (very tall!) with her entourage boarding the 20-minute train from Nice to Cannes. Because, unbeknownst to me, Cannes Film Festival was happening.

Sleepless in #Piraeus

#COSCO are increasingly uneasy about their investment in #Greece. They are desperate to get the go-ahead for a new container terminal (Pier IV), with an estimated capacity of handling some TEU2.8m a year, mostly because of competition. 1/10
In 2020, #TangerMed in #Morocco (run by #Maersk) overtook #Piraeus as the largest container port in the #Mediterranean, and #Valencia got very close. The merger between #Antwerp and #Zeebrugge also adds to what is already a fierce competition between forwarders. 2/10
So far, the government of #Greece has not agreed to the construction of a new container terminal, due to growing resistance to #COSCO’s policies from a motley crew of local stakeholders in #Piraeus and neighbouring municipalities. 3/10

Prepare for a thread about Well-formulated #Keto Adherence Paper that just came out.

Randomized crossover trial of 2x12-week #keto #LCHF vs. #Mediterranean diet.

Results show equally sustainable given the right conditions, but...
Researchers designed study that during first 4 weeks of each diet, food was provided & during the next 8 they had to buy their own. Baseline&followup adherence scores were also collected. All this allowed researchers to determine how sustainable diets were under diff conditions
baseline #keto adherence score was lower than Medi score. BUT during the time period when food was provided AND when they had to buy their own food, mean keto score was equal to or higher than Medi score. At the follow-up #keto score had dropped again. From this I conclude...

@CoachFelecia From time-to-time, ethnic personalities similar to that of #AndyNgo have appeared in right-wing movements ..

You just have to look for them.

These "ethnic" individuals aren't there to discover the truth!
@CoachFelecia They are their to provide a service. That is their value.

What is the service? They are weaponized to confuse the public while empowering "lily-white" delusions about black people.
@CoachFelecia These individuals...

Never thought their life could be
Anything but catastrophe

Hi, my name is Maersk Denver and I am the most unlucky container #ship in the world.

Why? Because I am the ship that famous photo of #EverGiven aground in the #Suez Canal was taken from.

I was a couple of week far from my destination when Julianne Cona shot it.

Thread 🚢
She is one of our marine engineer.
And, yes, she is a #woman.

By the way I think you should definetely thank Julianne for letting the #world #economy know they were f*cked, in the exact moment it happened.

I am starting: thanks to make us famous, J!
But I was telling you...
...about our luck.

Well, we were quite ahead of #EverGiven when we approached the Suez Canal.

We would be already in the #Mediterranean Sea by now if they had not cut us off entering the Suez canal!

What happened next is already #history.
They stranded just in front of us...

The secret war on oil smuggling to fund Hezbollah
The #smuggling axis and the money laundering- hundreds of millions of dollars that pass through 🇸🇾Syria to the #terrorist organization (#Hezbollah) in 🇱🇧Lebanon. This is how the "oil war" is conducted.
1/25–Part 1
#Iran's oil smuggling into Syria is not a new issue. They have been in place for several years, even before the #Trump administration imposed sanctions on Iran and on Syria.
The question facing Western intelligence was how #Syria pays Iran for the oil it receives. 2/25
As of May2018, when the #Iranians were barred from transferring funds in the international financial system, they had trouble getting the proceeds or payments for the oil they smuggled to China, North Korea, Syria & other countries like Turkey where oil was smuggled inland. 3/25

#Lebanon’s #Tripoli is the poorest city in the #Mediterranean, with marginalised #Sunni population with reported of 80% uneducated, high unemployment, well before #BeirutBlast
No wonder the city’s youth had enough and protest against #lockdown
Thus far, one dead & 200+ injured
Traditionally, the #Hariri’s Mustaqbel party is the patron of Sunnis, but thanks to Saad Hariri’s weak leadership, Sunnis, especially in #Tripoli, are now under the influence of Salafi sheikhs and even #Erdogan’s #Turkey

Existeix un molt mal costum en arqueologia protohistòrica, dels #Pirineus cap a baix: quan no tenim prou dades arqueològiques (cosa que no és pas infreqüent) rellegim la #Ilíada. El dia que deixem de fer això, farem millor la nostra feina.

Generacions de protohistoriadors han viscut obnubilats per la devoció malaltissa (i molt masculina i testosterònica, també convé dir-ho...) que sentien vers la imatge dels herois aqueus i troians foten-se castanyes a cor que vols a peus de les muralles d’#Ilion,

1. Syria can be saved. But #Turkey's maligned influence in #Syria and the region must end. We can end the fighting in #Idlib by making it a #semiautonomous region. An #SDF force comprised of mostly of #SunniArabs but with Christians #Ezidis & Kurds can bring peace in the north
2. and in #Idlib with US air and #logistic support. Let #Assad stay if he wins a free and fair election. Otherwise, the #Alawite 17% minority dictatorial rule will end. Remember: #SDF protected #Daesh from harm when they surrendered on the Eastern Euphrates.
3. SDF can work as they do now with the Govt. forces if the shared goals are peace, secular and gender equality under a democratic Constitution. Other than unrepentant #Daesh and Al-#Qaeda who will likely flee to Turkey to continue #Jihad with continued support of Erdogan regime,
