The medieval formation & modern history of the Baltic States (Estonia, Latvia, & Lithuania) is a very intricate, difficult topic.
Sadly, key artefacts were deliberately blown up (Boris Stones) stolen (Euphrasia’s Cross) or erased (by propaganda or genocide)
after the 1939 Soviet-Nazi pact such that the 1 artefact unifying the area in #medieval times - the COG ship used by Catholic Crusaders then adopted by Orthodox colonizers & Slavic tribes along the Neman, Daugava, Emmajõgi, Velikaya, & Volkhov Rivers - is terribly rare.
Yet of the COG remains its MOSS - polytrichum commune - flourishing all over the region.
Since Soviet studies had to ignore dendochronology (tree-ring dating) & Chernobyl’s radiation (=false chemical dating) & skirt the limits of KGB monitoring,& since 1992 each free
Can Congress get #health funding done before the new FY19 begins Oct. 1? Maybe. Holdover temporary funding then finish the work in a post-election lame duck session? Depends. /2 @CardinalWaypt
This is more certain: 2019 work for 2020 #health spending will be much more difficult. The new Congress elected this November will get this ticket after the 2yr Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 $$$ expires,, w/big deficits in view. /3 @CardinalWayptcbo.gov/publication/53…
#RePEc is a collaborative effort of hundreds of volunteers in 99 countries to enhance the dissemination of #research in #economics & related sciences (see repec.org on how you can be part of this initiative). Here is the list of our main services👇
Munich Personal #RePEc Archive is intended to disseminate #research papers of economists who want to make their work freely available through the RePEc network but are not affiliated with any institution that provides that furtherance mpra.ub.uni-muenchen.de
Some people telling me this is very badly photoshopped 😂 Of course it is 😂 ANYONE can see. 🤷🏽♂️
The real list is much longer and much more interesting. Who are those people that receive these medals? Who are they REALLY? #research#qanon#truthen.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_P…
In 1999 Bill Clinton gave Edgar Bronfman the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian award.
1/ From a dataset of 4,003 executed and planned ICOs,
which raised a total of $12 billion in capital, nearly all since January 2017.
Average returns were 179% from the ICO price to the first day’s opening market price, over a holding period that averages just 16 days.
2/ Even after imputing returns of -100% to ICOs that don’t list their tokens within 60 days and adjusting for the returns of the asset class, the representative ICO investor earns 82%.
HODLING generated average buy-and hold additional returns of 48% in the first 30 trading days
1. There seems to be a lot of battle fatigue and division in the #QAnon community. If Q never posted again, we have more than enough to do battle. Reread the drops. We have 6 months worth of rich knowledge to explore/research/post/educate others.
2. Many are just learning. Maybe it would be helpful and bring #unity to the community for us to share what we've learned. What are your favorite Q crumbs? Feel free to post here and repost to spread the word.
What about Q #570 1/21/18 The Sixteen Year Plan To Destroy America?
3. What if cures for many diseases like cancer already exist, but Big Pharma is keeping them secret to gain $$$ in grants, donations, research etc.
In his analysis, Marx noted how the contradiction between #labor and #capital accounted for many of the social dynamics of #capitalism.
2. The contradiction does not necessarily mean #conflict, but tendencies that "pull" in different directions and are in a dialectical relation to each other.
The contradiction of labor/capital can be accommodated in different ways and with very different consequences.
3. I like how this notions focuses on changing social dynamics. In my own work on #land use of #Mengen speakers in #PapuaNewGuinea, I've used the notion of #contradiction, to think about social forces underpinning Mengen land ownership and use.
Tim Clement-Jones, Chair of Council @QMUL, reflects that until recently the contribution of the creative industries to the UK economy has been underestimated but this is starting to change, with @ahrcpress funding research to build a crucial evidence base & build new employment
Over the past few months, several scam accounts have popped up that call themselves #resistance. Some ask for #donations to help impeach Trump. Some sell shirts, phone cases, etc. And there are others that ask for money for various causes. THREAD 1 #scam#donate#con#PSA
So, while we are resting on the #FBPE-laurels after a hot chase of #WATON, a few very preliminary thoughts on #Brexit and #genre. As my handle indicates, I came to #Twitter with an intent to talk about genre #research, but I have ended up talking about Brexit instead. 1/
Or is that indeed "instead"? A central finding of #genrestudies is that #genre is well nigh omnipresent in human culture, cognition, and communication. Thus, we think, react, and act in genre patterns, and we all have a surprising aptitude for understanding and using genre. 2/
Thus, it may never have entered your mind while discussing #Brexit (or, hopefully, the lack thereof) that you are constantly using and discussing #genre. But you are. Allow me to show you. 3/
