The changes in customer preference is pitting India’s traditional snacks like Aloo Bhujia, murukku, makhane and more against international brands like Lays, Bingo and Pringles. While this may come off as a comparison of apples and oranges, it does stand true.

#snacks Image
Strong distribution, wide flavour range at varied price points and aggressive promotion are some of the leading drivers for Pepsico and ITC strong portfolio and market dominance.

In my live @CTVNews #interview last evening, I said that the current migrant crisis on the #BelarusBorder with #Poland is important because it involves Poland, which is a EU members, and Belarus, which is allied with #Russia, and it is near #Ukraine, which has an armed conflict.
In my CTV News interview, I also said that UN Security Council meeting concerning migrant crisis on #BelarusBorder with #Poland is likely to produce divide between #Russia that supports #Belarusian government & Western countries, such as US, UK, and France.
I stated in my @CTVNews interview that EU #sanctions against #Belarus won’t resolve the #Migrant crisis on #Belarus #Poland border, because sanctions were proven to be ineffective after last #Belarusian presidential elections & after diversion of passenger plane by Belarus.

I'm grateful to Samina Mishra (author) and Tarique Aziz (illustrator) for recording Jamlo's story. Because we do tend to forget easily, and if we hadn't lived through this point in time, all this might even have seem far-fetched. #jamlowalks
With the present government in power, I wouldn't be surprised if every story about migrants walking home disappeared from our archives. Which makes this picture book published by Penguin India, and Jamlo's story even more important.
As a writer, I marvel at the tone that's used through the book. Samina's writing feels like a quiet observation and never feels gimmicky. I liked that even as we get glimpses of diverse children's lives, it never judgmental. #childrensbooks

We got our hands on the final report by #Frontex working group on #migrant pushbacks in the Aegean. Prompted by investigations by @Derspiegel, partners at @LHreports, @Belingcat & other media, it is rather embarrassing for the Agency. Main takeaways: 1/8 spiegel.de/politik/auslan…
2/8 It does not exonerate either Frontex or the Hellenic Coast Guard; It criticises the shortcomings of the EU’s strongest and exponentially growing Agency under the leadership of Fabrice Leggeri in terms of monitoring, reporting, recruitment and other crucial aspects.
3/8 It reports that after all these months, five pushback incidents are still not clarified completely, because of “deficits and the need for improvement of the reporting and monitoring system".

Welcome to Aajeevika's #InternationalMigrantsDay campaign, “Badalta kaam, badalta daam,” where we centre the diverse coping mechanisms of #migrant workers as they face depressed wages, wage theft, and body burdens amidst a post-lockdown economic ‘recovery.’ (1/8)
Our narratives come from migrants who work in Mumbai’s informal manufacturing and construction sectors. Specifically, they live and work in Khairani Road & Netaji Nagar Nagar: industrial-residential neighborhoods in Sakinaka, in the city’s L-ward. (2/8) #InternationalMigrantsDay
These neighbourhoods areas are home to thousands of informal manufacturing & recycling units producing garments, metal moulds, pipes, stationery, furniture, e-waste, hospital waste & constitute local, regional or global value chains ending up as far as Sudan & Nigeria. (3/8)

Happy to show my latest work with @_SudhaNarayanan & @shreesaha00 on #NREGA in @Ideas4India & @firstpost
hopefully of interest to @rozi_roti @aashishg_ @Ugentilini @AninditaAdhik13 @StrandedWorkers
Our findings related 2 #poverty and #migration are below
ideasforindia.in/topics/poverty…
In the wake of the #COVID19 lockdown and the large-scale return of #Migrant workers to rural areas, #NREGA played a crucial role. After lockdown restrictions in April 2020, #NREGA person-days expanded substantially before they reduced back to pre-lockdown levels
Are these additional person-days distributed across districts in ways that are commensurate with their population shares of #outmigration and #poverty ?
This is important in a context where historically poorer states have utilised less funds than richer states. 5 major findings:

On now, Dave Perkins of @dialogues360 presenting results of study on 5 #ASMecosystems in #SouthAfrica. #Data variability is a persistent research challenge and also needs coordination across partners in the ecosytem. @DelveASM confirms this as a problem of global scale.
Cost of compliance, lack of access to capital, markets & weakened institutional support to #ASM sector in #SouthAfrica are validated as barriers in this sector. Impact of these factors pale in comparison to the policy/ reg vacuum w/in whichsector operates. Policy schizophrenia.
.@dialogues360 argues, and I concur, that time is of the essence in influencing the new policy process launched by the government of #SouthAfrica on formalizing the #ASM sector, ideally convened by a neutral, honest broker party.

Delighted to announce the release of my new report for @CFR_org, “The Day After in Venezuela: Delivering Security and Dispensing Justice.” Should @NicolasMaduro relinquish power, the US and likeminded partners will need a plan to reinstate the rule of law. cfr.org/report/day-aft…
#2. International actors have not planned sufficiently for stabilizing the security environment or fostering #transitionaljustice, which could itself be an important lever to push regime operatives toward defection or at least meaningful negotiations.
#3. Aftermath of Maduro’s departure could see conflict among armed factions, unstable political coalitions, corruption, and a #refugee and #migrant outflow. US should anticipate such fallout and identify opps now to ensure that any transition begets the restoration of #democracy.

MY MOTHER WAS RIGHT. Knowing little about #Melania, I've resisted judging her. The evidence is in. Literally. New book, based on texts, emails & recorded calls, shows the beautiful 1st Lady is as racist, callous, and, frankly, ugly as the rest of the clan. vanityfair.com/news/2020/08/m…
#Melania asked Wolkoff, 1 of her few close friends, to help plan the inauguration, but when questions were raised about corruption & embezzlement, Wolkoff was falsely blamed. To protect herself, she began saving all communication w/ M. The book's based on those "receipts."
#Melania thought #migrant kids were better off in detention camps: "They are taking care nicely there." She buys into #birtherism. The book shows she's "rolling around in the muck" (as Fox puts it in her review) as much as the rest of the family.

1-I’ve been covering the #refugee #migrant crisis for 5 years and I thought I’d write down a few of my experiences following the largest migration of people the world has ever known. I hope this thread raises awareness of the complexity around the subject. pics ©_edwardcrawford Migrants wearing face masks...
2-What I find interesting about the refugee/migrant crisis, particularly on social media. Is that people with little or no experience seem to be the most vocal and convinced of their opinions. Image
3-I’ve covered the migrantion crisis for 5 years & worked on the ground extensively. I’ve visited dozens of refugee camps & illegal migrant encampments. I’ve spent hundreds of hours with refugees & migrants. Listening to their stories and trying to make sense of this crisis. Image

"We are an important base for US troops" #Germany Defense Minister @akk Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer tells #EUDefense in prerecorded interview when asked about impending US pullout

"We on German soil are also contributing to American security"
"What we are discussing is the security of the [@NATO] alliance" per @akk "If there are troop reductions in #Germany, which we regret, if the decision is being taken, then the question is where do the soldiers deploy?"
"If they were redeploying within #Europe then that would mean that the strong commitment of the United States in the transatlantic partnership and the focus on Europe would remain, and that would be an important message for @NATO" per #Germany's defense minister

#COVID spreads through human-to-human transmission, so #migrants are an important vector. In the absence of adequate covid tests in LMICs, can we predict sub-national COVID spread, or identify likely hotspots using data on migration?

Short answer: Yes.
yrise.yale.edu/using-migratio…
Data on airport returnees predict subsequent quarantines & #COVID19 distress calls across districts in #Bangladesh. Data on migration permits predict confirmed cases in #Philippines municipalities and Bangladeshi sub-districts.
Beyond the validation using public health data, our recent phone surveys across Bangladesh helps to ground-truth this approach:
Living in communities with recent #migrant returnees triples the odds (!) of reporting #COVID symptoms. This is the single largest risk factor.
