A new special issue! 📚

➡️ tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.10… @GermanPolJnl (1/11)
Our SI studies "new contentious politics": A #double #transformation of contemporary protest arenas, marked by (1) new issues & claims from the left to the far-right as well as (2) hybrid organisational forms & a close interaction between protest and electoral politics. 🪧 (2/11)
In "Civil Society, Cleavage Structures, and Democracy in Germany", E. #Grande studies the importance of new political #cleavages for understanding protest. Crucially, he points to the ambivalent relationship between civil society & #democracy.

"#Collectibles market size was estimated at $402B in 2021 and is expected to cross $1T by 2032." -@MarketDecipher

@AmericanaNFT provides an ecosystem for #artists & #creators to interact with #collectors who can then engage with producers and consumers alike.

What I find as interesting about this chart as its contents is the label at the top: "#LIBERAL WOMEN"

Labour may in part* be more 'liberal' than the current Conservative party, but it is not a Liberal party...

__
*It still has its more authoritarian, "law'n'order!" tendencies. Image
...indeed, the chart itself 👇 suggests that "the women of Wakefield" support the Liberal Democrats LESS than the men.

This rather American(?) conflation of "left" and "liberal" in both language and assumption is a form of #CategoryError - in large part due to the insistence... Image
...on the all-too #binary 'left/right' framing that fails to encompass many nuances within politics.

That UK-level choices prefer only two 'parties of Government' does not entirely reflect either sentiment or ground reality, as the local government layer in England indicates... Image

[#Thread] Après plusieurs semaines de test intensifs, il est temps de vous faire un récap sur le #PlayToEarn @CrazyDefenseEN pour répondre à : 

🔸 Qu'est ce que c'est
🔸 Les points forts/faibles
🔸 Mon avis
🔸 Combien peut-on espérer #gagner en $

Sans plus attendre... 🧵⬇️
La découverte

@CrazyDefenseEN m'a été présenté par @CryptoGaryy de chez les @TheDiggers_io lors de l'un de ses #thread.

Les quelques images de ce jeu m'ont donné envie d'essayer et de l'exploiter pour voir ce que ça donnait en termes de #crypto (et les gains potentiels).
Concrètement, c'est un #TowerDefense, un peu dans le même type que @NFTCastleDef sur lequel j'ai passé pas mal d'heures.

Il faut empêcher des #troupes de #créatures sanguinaires d'atteindre certains points représentés par des drapeaux bleus.

There are always one thing of Two things, A Truth or a Lie, Day or Night, Yes or No, Black or White, Some things precede all these things. What we call them Occurrence, "Imaginations", "Thoughts", "Fantasies" 👇
When a relationship is established between two people have relationship is based on distance. Then there is the Emotional connection between the two. The relationship that is formed after the relationship of feeling, is the relationship of feeling that we call imagination. 👇
There are certain conditions for the existence of everything.
The imagination cannot settle in these situations until it has fallen. Imagination comes in many forms. Imagination is the means by which we can meet God. When we can meet God in imagination, 👇

1/9 #Colonial #Victorian tropes of #primitive and #civilised are never funny @BBCNews @BBCWorld. They were actively used to justify colonialism.

Small-scale societies are as complex as large states, and values and morals are #HumanUniversals. Also, #Neanderthals were smart! Image
2/9 #Hunter-gatherers live in small groups but have large social networks. San societies in southern #Africa maintain these by exchanging ostrich eggshell beads across hundreds of kilometers. And they have been doing this for over 30,000 years.

3/9 #Aboriginal societies in #Australia have complex ways of transmitting knowledge across space and time. Their #OralHistories preserved information on the impact of #SeaLevelRise at the end of the last #IceAge over 10,000 years.

Almost impossible to get a PCR test in #Westchester (or NYC) right now. This evening on FB, the County Executive, George Latimer, provided an update on the #COVID testing situation in Westchester County. See below for content: 1/12
"Update on #COVID #Testing & more…We’re all well aware of the long lines faced by those who want/need COVID testing. This post will update what is being done about it.Two things have worked to push more people to get tested:more infection exposures; #holidayseason #travel 2/12
The ability to satisfy this demand has been compromised by insufficient number of test kits, and staffing gaps in the health care field.We’ve seen an explosion in #COVID cases the last week - 2,000+ new cases in less than a week. A surge we haven’t seen in a year. 3/12

9/gpc Intensity of exposure to Corona virus matters. Which is why all household members get sick if they don't take precautions during home quarantine of one member. It's also why bars, party rooms & public bathrooms are most dangerous.
10/gpc This means we will have to follow the five safety precautions mentioned in first tweet & repeated in 🧵, even after new cases decline(ie for 6-12 months) : bit.ly/2FB7mZa

🗣️Our new book is out today: “#CasaPound Italia: contemporary #Extreme #Right #Politics” co-written by @CaterinaFroio @SciencesPo_CEE Matteo Albanese, Giorgia Bulli and myself @CrexUiO, for @routledgebooks @FFRAFAction (thread 1/15)
shorturl.at/nSW19
@CaterinaFroio @SciencesPo_CEE @CrexUiO @routledgebooks @FFRAFAction The volume presents a theory of contemporary right-wing #extremism that helps understand how a fringe group like CPI has been successful in placing its ideas in public debates in #Italy. shorturl.at/nSW19 (2/15)
@CaterinaFroio @SciencesPo_CEE @CrexUiO @routledgebooks @FFRAFAction We argue that this type of success has to do with #hybridization, which we define as the blurring of five main aspects of ‘#extreme right politics’: #ideology, internal structure, #activism, #mobilization and #communication.
