Dispatches from the #Prairies

1/ Hearing instances of Black women being barked at on the streets of #Saskatoon and wondering about backlash after #BlackLivesMatter 

This is not new here.

We have seen Indigenous people behind attacked around Gerald Stanley's trial. #skpoli
2/ We’ve seen thousands of people on the streets of various Saskatchewan cities during the #BlackLivesMatter protests in a province that rarely accounts for Black lives.

With more people out after covid related post-confinement in the province, I seriously wonder about this.
3/ Very important to have a historical perspective and to connect the dots on race issues in this province where the Black population has more than tripled in the same period of time in 20 years. And where the Indigenous population is rapidly growing.

@Min_Ecologie @France2tv @le_Parisien @FondationNH La production de #viande consomme-t’elle beaucoup d’#eau ?
@Min_Ecologie @France2tv @le_Parisien @FondationNH @plumedeschamps @MacLesggy @NathalieMarcha4 @ChouetteAgile @MathieuRobert3 @pdelfortrie @agrihs76 Pour produire 1 kg de viande, seuls 50L à 70L d'eau en moyenne suffisent.
L'idée reçue selon laquelle il faudrait 15 000 litres d'eau vient de la méthode Waterfootprint, qui comptabilise en réalité 3 types d’#eau.

Et si la France pouvait nourrir 1,4 Millions de vaches supplémentaires, de manière économique et écologique, sans cultiver la moindre surface en plus ?

C'est la promesse de l'optimisation des #Prairies !

Un thread
La #prairie, c'est la 1ère culture en France (Oui, oui, c'est une culture !)

Elle occupe environ 13 millions d'hectares soit près de la moitié de la Surface Agricole Utile (7,7 millions d'ha de prairies permanentes et 4,9 millions d'ha de prairies temporaires)
La prairie est une culture et donc... Elle se cultive !
Mais de toutes les cultures, elle est sans doute la + délicate à conduire :
Un grand nombres d'espèces végétales différentes et de mélanges possibles, des durées de cultures très variables, différents modes d'exploitation...

In the early part of the first millennium CE, the #IndoEuropean language known as Proto-#Germanic diverged into an East branch (which included #Gothic) and a Northwest branch.

Northwest then split into West and North branches when Proto-#Norse developed in #Scandinavia. Image
Until the 8th century, #Germanic #languages, including Proto-#Norse, were written in Elder Futhark, the earliest #runic #alphabet.

The name #Futhark comes from the initial phonemes in the names of the first six #runes:
ᚠ ᚢ ᚦ ᚨ ᚱ ᚲ

By the beginning of the #Viking Age around 800 CE, Proto-#Norse had evolved into Old Norse, and #Scandinavia's writing system transitioned from the 24 #runes of Elder #Futhark to Younger Futhark's 16 runes.

The #Swedish #Sparlösa #Runestone from ~800 CE features both #alphabets. Image
