#Readers who justify #bookpiracy because THEY are poor i.e can buy the latest tech, fashions, daily coffees but cannot 'afford' books, we need to have a talk, and #RealityCheck ...
1. Those who download from #pirate sites wouldn't buy the book anyway.

To justify theft by saying that the thief wouldn't pay for what they stole is ridiculous. Clearly, they wanted the product but didn't think it was 'worth' $4 because they can steal it without consequences.
2. Authors earn lots of money, they're just being greedy.

In the latest @ALCS_UK research "“The median annual income of a professional author is £10,500 (US$11,300), which is well below the minimum wage."

1% of authors earn huge sums, most of us barely scrape a living.

Hello Ma @obyezeks
Having considered your common slogan “#COMPETENCE, #CAPACITY & #CHARACTER”, & in the light of your ambition to lead a Nation like Nigeria in any political capacity not as appointed but elected I am more than convinced that you are far from it. #Fact
I don't think you have such #character to lead or the capacity to govern any community. Competence on its own is subjective to several parameters, and it is debatable if you are even competent for any elected office and I will explain further here:
No, this is not an attack of your personality, it’s just a #RealityCheck meant to scrutinize whoever dares to desire any political office. You have used the same beam light on others, you are still using it to “attack” the leading candidates in APC and PDP....It's OK

Will uns #Kurz für dumm verkaufen? Was er heute an PR-Parolen von sich gegeben hat, hat nichts (!) mit der politischen Realität des letzten Jahres zu tun. Die Bilanz #365Tage klammert beinhart aus, was #ÖVP und #FPÖ treiben. Hier ein #RealityCheck (Thread)
Real: PflegerInnen, die 24/7 für unsere Eltern, Großeltern, Tanten/Onkel da sind, wird die Familienbehilfe gekürzt, wenn sie aus dem 'falschen' Land kommen und von dort zu uns zum Arbeiten pendeln. #Kurz unterdessen munter von "mehr Unterstützung" redend. Von wegen!
Jungen Menschen ü18, die eine Lehre in einer überbetrieblichen Ausbildungseinrichtung machen, wird die Ausbildungsbeihilfe gekürzt. Sie kriegen im 1. und 2. LJ nur noch 325,80 Euro. Aber klar, ich glaub dem Kurz, wenn er sagt: alles tippi toppi für die Jungen in Ausbildung!

The mess of the past in Nigeria is just like The Story of EX-husbands & the challenge of the NEW husband in satisfying the existing family already abused by the past....
Let me try this amateur thread #NigeriaStory
#NigeriaStory is like that of a family of 36 children with, one husband at a time and several wives.
yet this husband is mandated to take care of them.
Funny enough, this husband is basically exposed to one source of income...Huge income, but volatile income....
This husband used to get as high as N500,000 monthly. The total monthly expenditure of the family is just N200K
So over the years, he's had extra N300K to keep to himself or save part of it (if he is sensible)......Alas, the ex-husband was using it to drink alcohol with his ppu!

Petit thread nocturne sur le droit d'asile. Je mentionne @norabz même si ça ne la concerne pas directement, ne soyez pas surpris.
Ça fait partie d'une opération purge de sa TL sous les ordres du général @Jaddo_fr
Pourquoi c'est compliqué pour un avocat, le droit d'asile ? Parce qu'on nous demande rien de moins qu'un exploit par dossier.
