Firstly, this story should not go unnoticed. Let's do what needs to be done. Let's make @Google @GooglePlay know what WE as artists think about this absurdity and obvious corporate thievery. Let's not sit on the sidelines.…
@Bandcamp is an amazing space and provides the independent artist with a plethora of ideas and tools to make their creative voices heard in this tough 'music business'. Google is literally a sham of a business. They offer 'free' products to entice us but use this model for ads.
And now @Google and @GooglePlay have decided to dive into the artists' pockets and take revenue from their Bandcamp sales. Ten F@$#! percent. While this is in court, we have to not let this stand. For once, really, we have to start to assert our power as people.

A month ago I wrote this 🧵 on why #import duties were not the answer to #Pakistan's Balance of Payments constraints. #ImportBans are certainly not the answer either. Rather, they exacerbate the underlying problem. Five thoughts. 🧵👇

1\ The usual: CAD results from a macro imbalance (Saving too low relative to investment, so foreign saving needed (borrowing) (CAD is the mirror image of borrowing from the rest of the world (financial account of BOP)). Fixing the CAD takes increasing saving (cool off demand).
2\ The #importban in #Pakistan reduces #imports (does it? see point 3\ below), but not the CAD, because it also reduces #exports.…

For years, as I have discussed the value prop for seizure-resistant, non-sovereign💲like #BTC with noobies, I have always had to caveat it with "we don't think about it in the Western world too much bc our money, banking system, and law typically work well"

2/ #Bitcoin's value in the Western world has NEVER been more obvious thanks to the last ~ 2 years.

Reminder, it has ALWAYS been valuable to those less fortunate living under authoritarianism or double-digit inflation (over half the world)…

3/ Now, Westerners are getting their taste:
- 10%+ inflation for many (screw the official #CPI numbers)
- Bank accounts being inexplicably closed @haydenzadams @PeterMcCormack
- Govt freezing funds and threatening companies #TruckersForFreedom
- ~25% M2 debasement in ~2 years Image

Dear @OptumRx & @SanfordHealth you are NOT his #physician. You know nothing of his #health hx. Two years ago #Sanford #Bismarck #pain clinic pulled all #patients off #opioid #pain medications. This was not #patientcentered care, but care deemed appropriate BY administrators 1
Now @OptumRx & @SanfordHealth #insurance sending out letters re #opioid #pain #medications. My son had to move from a #Sanford clinic to another clinic due to #abandonment. Yep, abandonment. Plain & simple what you did was harmful & not based on #patients needs. You need 2
to look at research, that shows the harms of what u r doing. @SanfordHealth administration in Bismarck informed me 2 years ago when all #patients pulled off #opioids that it was the ‘national standard’ of care established by @CDCInjury @CDCDirector. The guidelines are NOT 3/

I have been looking for a way into #Top20ColorSongs beyond just naming some songs with colours in that I like. There's no simple way of ordering colours with a start and end and I don't fancy delving into RGB values etc
But when I read @dreamfuel's snooker inspired twist an idea began forming. The @MonopolyUK board has 22 coloured squares, plus 4 stations and 2 utilities (which I will count as white as per their property cards).
So I will grab a pair of virtual dice shortly and see what colours the streets of London fancy throwing up.

I shall play as the ship as always, I will roll again if I land on the chests, parking, jail etc as I don't have access to an actual board. Playing standard UK version.

1/12 A thread on #ANT and how to read #China #PBOC Governor speech on Fintech(#ANT) yesterday. The headline says only FinTech, but Wink Wink, ANT is all over. Get strapped because I will sprinkle some wide guesses and rumors in the end.…
2/12 My quick take on Fintech (Ant) SINS: 1. Monopoly power 2. Winner takes all 3. Payment system seeping into finance, insurance, small loan and asset mgt. 4. FIN must be separated from Tech, Payment from FIN. 5. Data Security 6. Global Coop on Fintech regulation
3/12 Points 3, 4, 5 has been addressed! I'v written on ANT credit scoring JV+ SASAC take stakes in the three private credit scoring companies. And Alipay has been ordered to be separated from financial services, because FinTech is more Finny than Techy!

Police claim “unlawful assembly” after killing 20 year old young black man, with his mom on the phone and his girlfriend beside him as they drove to visit his older brother and see his new home. Here is the PDF from the @aclu_mn re: protests. #BlackLivesMatter
Minneapolis police knew, or should have known, the killing of a young black man stopped in his vehicle, will result in protests. The police should have been prepared for protests and de-escalated it. Journalists have been reporting that police officers are quitting the “force”
because of fear of danger after the George Floyd trial outcome. Therefore, they knew of the repercussions of killing, wrongfully, a young black man. #EnoughIsEnough #StopSystemicRacism

To improve the public governance of #data in a digital society, China needs to intensify efforts in the following aspects:
1. Provide legislative support for the classified management of data, clarify data ownership and using rights, and stipulate legal responsibilities in the use and transaction of data, or even establish a special supervisory department or mechanism;
2. Step up regulation on various #AI applications. A set of regulatory mechanisms is needed to manage public-oriented AI applications;

The people behind #CommunicationRights are not obstructionist behaviorists. @NeuroClastic has speech language pathologists, psychologists, educators, OTs, MTs, researchers, neuroscientists, & nonspeakers who communicate through AAC, spelling, & sign. #ActuallyAutistic #Autism
These people may have an aggressive approach to bullying autistics & our allies out of our own narratives & using their white (that's all white people) privilege to maintain the #monopoly on #Autism, but they are NOT allies. They are #oppressors. We can and do communicate. See?
We have orgs, individuals, & initiatives championing #CommunicationRights. @U4CommChoice @Communica1st @ekverstania @autselfadvocacy @awnnetwork_ @ReachEveryVoice and so many more. It's 2020, and we are #nonCompliant with a #Behaviorist agenda that parades itself as #science.

"There has been a clear spike in #online shopping, and #retail #analysts are wondering whether this is a #decisive #move into the #virtual world, and the further #dominance of big #corporations."

Please tell the analysts that the answer is yes.
"Keeping us distracted as we wait at home for our parcels is the streaming #entertainment industry – a market sector which is dominated by big corporations including #Netflix, #Amazon Prime (again), #Disney and and others."

1. The American necropolitical system and the death of a thousand cuts.

I am halfway through writing a book on #suicide and training focused on understanding suicide.

2. The medicalized version of #suicide, according to which suicide is a manifestation of mental illness and, therefore, tautologically, suicides are predominantly caused by mental illness is logically and empirically false and I am providing evidence for my argument.
3. The current increase in self-destructive deaths which include deaths that don't end up as suicides in public statistics is a result of the intensification of American #necropolitics.

India is a land of unique monopolies....
Even though there are so many "competitors" in every sector, there is a consistent market share #monopoly/#duopoly in most sectors or particular segments of those sectors!
Some very prominent examples are...


Organized Paint Industry
Duopoly - 59%

Asian Paints - 42%
Berger Paints - 17%

(appx values)

Telecom Industry
Duopoly - 62% & rising

Jio - 34%
Airtel - 28%

Vodafone has 28% as of now but every month it loses out subscribers at a fast pace to Jio & Airtel

@ScottMorrisonMP @AlboMP @abcnews @andrewprobyn @vanOnselenP #ScottyFromMarketing You've got to be kidding? You were expected to 'Clarify' the actions, decisions & recommendations of the #NationalCabinet". Well mate, you need better #SpeechWriters, cos it was another #EpicFail!
How can you claim to have a fully Representative #NationalCabinet without inviting ALL #Federal #Political parties to the table? @AlboMP & @AustralianLabor must be a part of your deliberations & represented directly in this forum.

This is your daily pension update: Doing some lapps edition.
Below you can go and download the just released LAPP Newsletter. One version for actives members and another for retirees. Or, I will save you the trouble and reproduce the naughty bits here.…
In the wry observation of a pension war room staff member:
"We received the following info in LAPP News, which until lately had been very reassuring reads!" Until lately indeed!
#ABEd #ABLeg #handsoffmypension
The first naughty bit directly from CEO Chris Brown: "We began 2019 with great expectations because legislation was passed in 2018 to recognize LAPP as a jointly-sponsored pension plan, beginning March 1, 2019."

Yeah, don't anyone hold their breath. #othershoewilldrop

Siedler von Catan ist, neben #Monopoly _das_ kapitalistische Brettspiel, zumindest im deutschsprachigen Raum. Ein Bestseller und "Spiel des Jahres" 1988 und folgende. Besonders die "Erweiterung Seefahrer" fordert ein Planspiel der Konkurrenz, des Austricksens, der Expansion
kolonialer Art im Gaming zu genießen. Es werden Länder entdeckt, Seerouten gemacht, Städte gebaut, Rohstoffe vernutzt und als Kapital für Kredite bei der Bank eingezahlt. Der Genuß des Gewinnens gegen die anderen liegt aber nicht "in" der Amygdala oder im psychologischen
Belohnungsprinzip. Er liegt zuforderst in der Abrufung genau der gefragten Verhältnisse und strukturellen Verläufe des Kapitalismus, die für sein Charakteristikum, die Akkumulation, kennzeichnend sind. Spielerinnen spielen für das Erreichen einer Punktzahl und nutzen dafür die
