However, the evidence is condensing. Long thread

3. The world looked at Italy, which was the first country outside of China to fall victim to the #lockdown. An Italian marketing company found out that numerous accounts appeared on the platforms that praised China's help in Italy to great acclaim.

Since 2017, Dangerous #hoax & #perception management through the echoed-opinion-stream at scale is carriedout both on social media and on vulnerable neighborhoods in Andhra Pradesh. With the social media advent, citizens (&citizen journalism) are supposed to be super awake (1/9)
& dismissal of propagandas should be super easy, but contrary to that most of us here have become victims of tech & goebbel strategists. How exactly did we let this happen? How does the politically active Telugu people let #YSJagan won #2019Elections? Roots go back to the (2/9)
times when YSRCP has appointed @PrashanthKishor as their political strategist (2/9)(I like him for his whatever-it-takes methodology. Politicians has to do politics of power, not alliswell-chants) and during July 2017 he employed thousands of smart people (3/9)

Le 19 avril, la #CNDA publiait son "recueil jurisprudentiel 2019". Retour sur les évolutions de la #jurisprudence relative à la définition du groupe social des femmes nigérianes victimes de la #traite des êtres humains à des fins d'exploitation sexuelle ⤵️
cnda.fr/La-CNDA/Actual…
Les réseaux nigérians de #TEH attirent des jeunes femmes nigérianes en #Europe en leur faisant miroiter une vie meilleure. Avant le départ, ils s'assurent de leur docilité grâce au serment #juju. Celles-ci sont ensuite exploitées sur les trottoirs des villes européennes.
L'importance des réseaux de #prostitution nigérians n'est pas négligeable puisqu'elle dépasse désormais celle des filières chinoises et est-européennes.

Lets talk about #Oil and why the price of the #US benchmark #WTI West Texas Intermediate has turned negative FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER...
Some of you are waking up to what might read or sound like another disaster. Just when you were learning how to deal with #COVID19, you hear about a so called plunge in the #Price of #Oil. But what does it mean to have oil in negative territory & why is that the case? Lets see...
In the main we will talk a bit about simple matters of #supply & #demand while touching on the #future as far as #consumer outlooks & #perception / #confidence are concerned. I would like us to start in 2016, a quick recap...what happened to #Oil?

The #Coronavirus Could Reshape #Global #Order ~ @kurtmcampbell @RushDoshi

"As #Washington falters, #Beijing is moving quickly and adeptly to take advantage of the opening created by US mistakes, filling the vacuum to position itself as the global leader in pandemic response. 1/n
It is working to tout its own system, provide #material #assistance to other #countries, and even organize other #governments. The sheer chutzpah of #China’s move is hard to overstate. 2/n

#CCP_is_terrorist #CCPvirus #ChineseVirus #WuhanVirus #CoronaVirusCHINA
Yet #Beijing understands that if it is seen as leading, and #Washington is seen as unable or unwilling to do so, this #perception could fundamentally alter the United States’ position in #global politics and the contest for #leadership in the twenty-first century. 3/n

Morning Twitter! I'm @HefferNaomi, Ri Digital Intern and PhD student @UniofBath where I study multisensory perception 👁️👂
I'm taking over @Ri_Science this morning to talk about the power of biological motion #perception #emotion #psychology #neuroscience
Motion is an extremely powerful social signal that we use to attribute intentions to others. From the still image we see only simple shapes, but by adding motion, we automatically start attributing emotions and purposes to the ‘characters’.
To me, the large triangle seemed like a bit of a bully😡, the small triangle a victim😱, and the circle wanted to help but was hiding in fear. This just shows the vast amount of social information we can ascertain from simple motion.

-A interview of a antisemitisem scientist-

"In polls, many #Germans are annoyed by the thematization of the #Holocaust: One third is annoyed that the crimes committed against the #Jews are still held up today. And 41 percent think that #Jews talk about it too often ..."
The feeling of being held up is apparently present in many, they feel attacked. It is quite paradoxical: Although in surveys almost 90 percent say that belonging to #Germany is the knowledge of the history of National Socialism. Nevertheless, especially the #youth find today:
My #grandfather was already no longer involved, at some point is also good times. Interestingly, this is not just a #German phenomenon, but in the whole of #Europe, such as in #Poland and #Hungary, but also in #Spain or the #UnitedKingdom.

Time for the jellybean illusion! You don’t actually need a jellybean, just some type of chewable candy, preferably with different colors & flavors. M&M’s: NOT be a good choice, gold bears: fine.

#teaching #classroom #Scichat #STEMeducation #illusion #perception #scicomm
Get comfy, get your candy out, and choose two pieces of different colors/flavors. Pick up one of those two, it doesn’t matter which.
Now, STEP 1: PINCH YOUR NOSE so you can no longer breathe in or out through your nose. You can use a swimmers pincher or even a clothespin too, but using two fingers is probably more comfortable and pretty easy.

@freegroucho @VictorCleaner Do you know about this?
images.app.goo.gl/P5LA8J8d4rSNbs…
Most (almost all) Antarctica volcanoes are positioned on the West side which loosing ice. The other bigger part is actually gaining ice. We do not know why. So a GW "proof" that CO2 is responsible for this is not a verified theory.
@freegroucho @VictorCleaner Some glaciers are melting, some glaciers are are gaining (like recently in Greenland.
In middle age Viking's Greenland (time of Maunder's minimum) was full of green pastures, hence the name.
Noticed today the news about ocean ship paths changing frequency of storms? Will repost..

J.J. #Gibson on non-visual #perception, #proprioception, and the importance of #movement for #selfperception: “The point (...) is that information about the #self is multiple and that all kinds are picked up concurrently.” #SummerReading
We need vision for movement. Walking: feeling contact of feet w/ ground isn’t everything! “You might think that the contact of(...) the foot with a surface (...) is specified by a mechanical impression of skin, by touch (...). Nevertheless there is optical specification.” #Gibson
Further, the “moving #self and the unmoving world are reciprocal aspects of the same #perception.” - - J.J. #Gibson on the specifying of limb #movement
