Imagine you were born in 1900. On your 14th birthday, World War I starts, & ends on your 18th birthday. 22 million perish in that war.

Later that year, a Spanish Flu epidemic hits the planet & runs until your 20th birthday. 50 million die from it in those 2 yrs
On your 29th birthday, the Great Depression begins. Unemployment hits 25%, the World GDP drops 27%. That runs until you are 33.

The country nearly collapses along with the world economy. When you turn 39, World War II starts. You aren’t even over the hill yet.
On your 41st birthday US is fully pulled into WWII. Between your 39th & 45th birthday, 75 million perish in war. At 50, Korean War starts. 5 million perish.

At 55, Vietnam War begins & doesn’t end for 20 years. 4 million people perish in that conflict.

IMF: Partial global rebound to 5.8% in 2021 “assumes the #pandemic fades in the 2nd half of 2020, & that policy actions taken by countries are effective in preventing widespread firm bankruptcies, extended job losses, & system-wide financial strains.” #WEO

We are seeing the most draconian measures enforced at all levels of government that we've ever seen in our lifetimes, and yet rather than being alarmed by the things going on, so many of you applaud.
People are being arrested for spending too much time outside, and you applaud. Pastors are being arrested for daring to hold church services, and you applaud. A child's birthday party is raided by police, and you applaud.
A young woman is ticketed for going on a leisurely drive alone because it's deemed "non-essential travel", and you applaud.

MT GLOBAL MARKETS Momentum & Sentiment Recap as of 21Feb20 wk8 thread 1/n

all eyes again on headline risk COVID-19 ...

• surprise spike in South Korea the tech hub, spike in Italy, hence, a second global supply chain uncertainty wave just started

Here's a little perspective for everyone bashing Corbyn over this election result:

Tories lost 3 successive times:
1997 = 165 seats
2001 = 166 seats
2005 = 198 seats

Corbyn's election
2017 = 232 seats
2019 = 202 seats

Not bad considering Brexit and the MSM wall of hate.
The point I am making is that Corbyn's socialist Labour is not as toxic as people are making out. The Tories did worse in those elections, and the last one was after the Iraq war, which must have puzzled Tory voters as much as we are puzzled about people voting for Johnson.
I think it's safe to say that people are just unpredictable. Politicians pitch their case and the people pick a side. Labour lost this time badly, which was a shock. Not so much the time before, which was a shock for the Tories. The next election will be on different issues.

I have the privilege of working with some of the best and brightest young men in our nation, who are destined for great futures. I know first hand that they live in a vacuum. In other words, if it’s not happening immediately around them, they are not aware of it. (thread)
I am also well aware of the fact that they do not have the same opportunities as other college and university students to just “let their hair down” so to speak. It’s the little things that offer a little fun and excitement to their lives.
I have had my fair share of encounters with people who thought my skin color made me less than them. I will be the first to say that racism and supremacy ideologies should have no place in our military or in our nation. However...

Regressing $XRP against time starting Jan/1/2018 using a linear regression forecasts price to hit zero next February. #Perspective
When running regressions on time series, the choice of starting point can be entirely arbitrary and have a dominant impact on conclusions.
This is not a prediction. Used $XRP and a simple statistical model to illustrate the bias introduced by choice of starting point or sample.

=> long bias: regress from starting point or lowest price point.
=> short bias, regress from the top.

Self-labeled “philanthropist”
One of the richest rappers in history
“Rags to Riches” graduate

Only raised $6 million for education...

That’s him literally giving us the coin in his pocket.

And y’all think that’s more than enough 🥴🥴🥴
In case anybody needs context on how much $6Million is to a BILLIONAIRE...…

The relative cost is how much these things would cost you if you had a billion:

Deliberately, I will put this down here, then we shall return to this when the media hype cannot cope with reality on ground again. I promise you, I will come back to this tweet much later maybe in the next 365 days.
Don't get me wrong, #MediaHype is a good strategy and as far as I'm concerned, it shows any Governor that is involved in such ESPECIALLY early enough is intelligent to know the meaning of #Perspective in life.
However, calm down & THINK through before you are caught unaware.
For me, 100 days in office is simply ceremonial, it does not really tell a complete story about any Governor in the final analysis.
E.g, who could have imagined within the 1st 100 days of Okorocha in Imo that he would turn out to be building STATUES as his VISION for Imo State?🤣

Amazon hasn’t turned a profit for many years which, per US tax code, allows it to certain tax breaks. As I noted earlier, companies like Uber and Lyft are also basically operating as giant nonprofits, while employing tens of thousands of people.

2. Uber lost $4.5 billion last year while people around the world benefited from its services; its salaried employees got generous benefits like 17 weeks of paid parental leave, which even federal government’s own employees don’t get. Tesla, Spotify operate at massive losses too.
3. Tax code offers tax credits to companies who:
(A) Invest in R&D (Amazon invested $22 billion in 2017: > Apple, Google, Microsoft)
(B) Give employees stock options (as Amazon does)
(C) Invest in infrastructure (Amazon built $1.49 billion air cargo hub in Cincinnati = 600 jobs)

No matter what or when, leaving an area gives opposition opportunity to potentially regroup... This is true.

To bend to this argument would mean PERMANENT occupation.

Think about it.
There does come a point when the folks of a region need to become responsible and accountable to themselves.
We cannot continually hold everyone's hand.
I must say the liberal left has tied themselves into knots on this issue proving its not about issues currently, it's about opposing Trump.
They didn't want the troops there in first place... Calling for immediate withdrawal... Until Trump announced the withdrawal that is. 🙄

Whatever team Paul Simon is on, consider me an in kind member.

His haunting & magical performances tonight on #SNL were needed & inspiring.

To the haters, get some empathy (humanity) and a life while you're in the checkout line.

There are different kinds of perfect.

Tina may not have the same moves she did at 50.

Billie Jean King might not have the same swing she did at 30.

And Paul Simon may not have the same range.

But you what? When they had it they had like no one before or since. Be grateful you lived to witness such greatness.

At 77 Paul Simon has earned the right to sing with whatever voice the gods have seen fit to leave him with, and I am quite certain, for the vast majority reading this tweet, even now his abilities far, far eclipse what you will ever be able to do.

So what do you make of the wave of #ecommerce these days? Come delve into the ins and outs of it with us!
So #Entrepreneurs out there, what is ecommerce?

It just refers to electronic transactions done in the name of #sale and #purchase.

In simpler terms, you buy and sell things online with the #internet! That's it!
But to whom and from whom can these #transactions take place between? Surprisingly, it's not just between #business (B) and #Customers (C)!

It can take place between:
1. B2B
