#WildlifeWeek is here. This week I will be sharing 7 #positive wildlife reintroduction stories from around the country. One story for each day. A small thread.
Day 1 - The return of Gaur in Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve !!!
1/7 Image
#Gaur the largest #bovine in peninsular #India, was previously found in three discreet populations in Southern India (Western Ghats and #Nilgiri plateau), Central India (#Vidarbha, southern MP, #Chhattisgarh and Eastern ghats in #Odisha) and North-East India.
2/7
Gaur were historically found in #Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve in small numbers. There were around 30-35 Gaur in BTR in the early 1990s, which had dwindled to just one individual in 1996 and zero in 1998.

#Population control In the 1950s and 1960s, much of the attention of eugenicists was focused on the new political interest in planetary population control. A new vocabulary anchored by the prospect of a “population bomb” (the title of Paul Ehrlich’s bestselling 1968 (1/18)
book) emerged as it became clear that the technologies of World War II had improved both life expectancy and in some instances infant mortality. The advent of antibiotics and pesticides, nutritional gains derived from food rationing and more ef f i cient agriculture, (2/18)
and success in minimizing debilitating diseases had added some 15 million to the Earth’s population each year of the war, a striking contrast to the devastating ef f ects of World War I.

Rise in population of a small group is always more in percent terms because base is small. The smallest possible increase in 1, is 1, so it becomes 2, but say 'double' or 100% increase, create scare while100 turn 130, 30% rise, yet difference widens more..
Lies are spread day in & day out to create a scare about growth in Muslim population, they are clever, talk in 'percent' , not real increase in [numbers] population, how much more Hindus in India than Muslims today, compared to past.
#MuslimPopulation #Population #Journalism
In simple terms
Case1: If you are given Rs 5 and it increases to Rs 10, then it's 100% increase or double.
Case 2: The guy who who was given Rs 50 and later increased to 70, percent rise is 40% but he's gone far ahead, difference was earlier just 45, now its 60.

Someone asked if there is good demographic data yet from #China's 2010 #census. The short answer is "no". Full release has not yet happened. BUT the Chinese ARE publicly discussing the fact that they overcounted their #population by 100m people...
2/
...all of which would have been born since One Child, with most of the missing millions being women. So I've done a rough mock-up of what that might look like. Details will obv vary, but based on what has been released I'm confident this is within the ballpark.
3/
Keep in mind that even before this revision, the Chinese demographic wasn't simply already terminal, it was already in a state of collapse.
The graphic w/o the yellow bars is the 2020 data.
The yellow bars are the theoretical missing millions.

How enduring use of 150-year-old speculum puts women off smear tests #cervicalcheck #pain independent.co.uk/life-style/wom…
I was invited by @NHSEngland for routine #cervicalscreening and despite the efforts of my practice #nurse, even the smallest available #speculum caused me greatest amount of #pain and we had to stop the #procedure within a minute after insertion.
I have been in pain for 9hrs now. 😑 No test designed for #screening #population should be thus. It is hardly conducive for #uptake. Why has #gynaecology stuck with this 'instrument of torture', despite advances in #medicalinstrumentation? Could it be #apathy? @MamaDoctorJones

“US-#China Competition Enters the Decade of Max Danger: #Policy Ideas to Avoid Losing the 2020s”

My latest with Gabe Collins @BakerInstitute!

#Xi
#Taiwan
As #PRC/#CCP power peaks over this decade, #Xi may seek #Taiwan as historic prize.

To protect their security & rules-based order, US/Allies must mobilize immediately to deter aggression.

The mission is vital, the stakes are high, & the clock is ticking.

bit.ly/PLA2027 Image
US/Allies/#Taiwan now face “#DecadeOfDanger” w/ peaking #Xi/#CCP/#PRC as #China has extreme version of “S-Curved #slowdown.”

Xi’s risk acceptance will likely be amplified by his track record of largely-uncountered revisionist actions vs. neighbors & RBO.

(1/21) On November 6, 1965, the U.S. agreed with Cuba to airlift Cubans to the United States.

In the next eight years, around 300,000 Cubans took advantage of this program and left for the country that had played a central role in its domestic politics for a long time. 🧵
🌎

(2/21) On that very same day, U.S. President Lyndon Johnson's science advisory committee sent him a report entitled Restoring the Quality of Our Environment. 

Summarized in one line: a warning that burning fossil fuels will change the climate.

🌎

(3/21) Although the report correctly warned about the increase of carbon dioxide, it noted that it would take a few more years before climate models could reasonably project future global surface temperature changes.

It is very important in this period of humanity to take a serious look at what is happening in the world friends.

Watch this video first in its entirety & reflect upon current situations critically.

#Menticide is here & with it, a new attempt to establish a "#TechnoTotalitarian" rule over the lives of American citizens.

The final variant of #Coronavirus could very well be the manifestation of a #NewWorldOrder under #totalitarian rule.
That may sound absurd, but what is very concerning is that many talking heads in the media & even public figures are now making very carefully worded emotional appeals to logic to further induce a totalitarian #masspsychosis.

On this I can agree with @Dominic2306, and go further.

#SW1 #IT and #IG has been in a parlous state for well over a DECADE, and more.

A year and a slew of inquiries after the @HMRC #ChildBenefit #DataBreach in 2007, we #FOIed every Government Department about the #databases...
..of #PersonalData they held. (Initially just the ones containing over 1 million records.)

I'll have to dig up the responses, but I clearly remember only 4 or 5 (out of 24) even had an #InformationAssetRegister, i.e. just a basic list of all the #databases for which they were...

The responses from @cabinetofficeuk & @10DowningStreet were even more appalling; they admitted allowing officials to routinely make copies of #population-scale data "for policy reasons" with no #oversight, no #audit, no defined #IG processes, and no idea of...

I am perplexed how #RogerChou can not only sit on the #CDCOWG but is a lead author. He recused himself at the #CDC meeting due to #COIs bc of his work as ‘expert witness’ in Purdue litigation but is lead author 🤷🏻‍♀️ @CDCDirector @CDCInjury could you explain how this is ethical? 1/
Listening to the #CDCOWG from perspective of #caregiver & advocate was disheartening. For me @CDCDirector assurances that #patients voices were heard was meaningless. She may say that we’ve been heard but then how are so many feeling as we haven’t been? Why are the #legislation 2
of these guidelines continuing? Why are those who have benefitted from #opioid #pain medications being removed, shamed & stigmatized? Why is care not individualized? It’s very clear our #voices have not been heard. There is nothing that was said that eased my concern for 3/

Delighted to see my paper “The Economic Value of Targeting Aging” -written with @NuCampEconomics and @davidasinclair – published in @NatureAging nature.com/articles/s4358…
Here is a thread explaining the main results-

#aging #longevity 1/12
Life expectancy has increased dramatically over last 150 years - most US children born today are expected to live into their mid-80s #longevity. This has shifted the disease burden towards chronic Non-Communicable diseases #aging and an increase in years spent in poor health 2/12 ImageImage
How should we value these past and future life expectancy gains? Is a compression of morbidity more valuable? What is the value of treatments that delay #aging? How does that compare with treating single diseases? 3/12

Of all the education groups in the US, women with a BA have the lowest fertility rate--lower than women with a Masters or PhD

#fertility #demography #population #education

cdc.gov/nchs/data/nvsr… ImageImage
People often see this and think: “people with less money and less education have more kids—so won’t the future population be overrun by poorer, less educated people?”
No! Because other things also determine a person’s education and earnings—like social institutions and individual behavior. People can be more educated than their parents.
