"Our results emphasize the importance of examining biodiversity loss as a global #systemic phenomenon, instead of looking at the degradingor polluting producers in isolation."
"German imports are linked to 395 species threats, and Malaysian exports to 276 species threats. Further details supporting Fig. 3 are given in Supplementary Information section 7."

#Deforestation: "#Consumption patterns of G7 countries drive an average loss of 3.9 #trees per person per year. Some of the hotspots of deforestation embodied in international trade are also #biodiversity hotspots"

nature.com/articles/s4155… #BiodiversityCrisis #WorldSystem
"#USA, #Japan, #Germany, #France, the #UK, and Italy, and several developing countries, such as #China and #India, have obtained net domestic forest gains. The net forest gains made in these countries were partially offset by importing embodied deforestation from elsewhere"
"Our analysis addresses two main questions: (i) Which #deforestation hotspots are driven by which consumer countries? and (ii) Which forest ecosystems, tropical rain forests or other forest types are the top targets of global supply chains?"

1/ Is anyone surprised that Moscow would - immediately - claim that Russian atrocities in #Bucha were “staged”? Does anyone remember that Serbian President #Vucic – two decades after the fact – claimed that Serbian atrocities in #Racak, Kosovo were “fabricated”? 🧵
2/ Is everyone aware #Belgrade is revising its own past in the #Balkans – and distorting present reality of Russia’s brutal invasion? That there is a straight line between Vucic’s denial of Racak and Belgrade’s promotion of Russian aggression in #Ukraine?
3/ No. Accomplished @nytimes journalist @ATHigginsNYT downplays the Serbian government role in fostering adulation of #Putin, support for Russian invasion and Russian and Chinese #authoritarianism. Instead, we get more vox-pop ‘Balkan ghosts.’

Jozef & Wiktoria Ulma risked their lives to help Jews during the #Holocaust. On 24 March 1944 the German police discovered the Jews in hiding.

The Jewish family was shot, as was the entire Ulma family - parents & 6 children. Wiktoria was 7 months pregnant.
March 24 - the anniversary of the murder of the Ulma family - is today in Poland the National Day of Remembrance of Poles who saved Jews during German occupiation. See this thread to learn 11 stories of #Righteous linked with #Auschwitz.

Abraham fails to save the cities of #Sodom and Gomorrah

But did he fail?
Is hard work that does not yield the expected result a failure?

In this post I discuss the end of #Abraham's negotiation with #God in Genesis 18:29-33

hebrew-bible.net/2022/03/01/did…

#TheHebrewBible #BibleStudy Image
#Abraham continues to negotiate with #God about how many righteous people will save #Sodom and Gomorrah. This finishes when Abraham realises that there are not enough #righteous people to save the cities. Was all his effort in vain?
Absolutely not. At minimum the #trial gave us a guide to how to run a just trial. It also taught us about #collateraldamage. But even more, as we will see soon, Abraham’s efforts saved Lot and his family.

(1/7) Breathing the air of a free and sovereign #European nation never felt so strange to me than in these dark days, while – just 1.500 km away – the people of @Ukraine get murdered on European soil in an unjustifiable #war of aggression by the Russian regime.

#Narcissism thread 🧵 15 (more) questions to ask yourself if you are questioning whether someone is a #narcissist
1. Do they devalue, diminish, demonise or harshly judge you or act as the righteous ‘authority’ figure with you regardless of their age, status or employment? 🚩
Are they #superior? For e.g. A non lawyer preaching to a lawyer about law. 2. Are they #defensive? Do they seem only interested in trying to prove that they are right & you are wrong, in a defensive mode? 🚩They are #competitive not co-operative. Co-operation is a must #healthy
3. Do they demand #attention from you? For e.g., insisting on having the conversation when it’s convenient for them only &/or use emotional #manipulation to ensure conversation happens on ‘their’ terms? They may not answer the question, go off topic, deflect, defensive, accuse 🚩

🏷️ Naming is so important and so cumbersome in programming as Phil Karlton coined in his famous cite:

"There are only two hard things in Computer Science: cache invalidation and naming things."

A thread 🧵👇
📐From the design phase.
Having a common name glossary is the central point in methodologies like #DDD.
But even if you don´t follow it, you will appreciate having a #ubiquitous language to communicate with all the people involved.
🚧 In the architect's hands naming is the core of its work.
Creating #patterns is given a name to proven solutions. Using them is using those names.
Dividing codebases and defining #layers and #tiers forces you to give them a name.

Hmm. I don't think anyone is claiming @Facebook is *solely* responsible for #antivax #misinformation, but it cannot be disputed the #platforms have been major contributors.

#Facebook can't have it both ways; to refuse to #apologise or accept any #responsibility, but then to...
...imply that what it is doing is helping 'solve the problem' (even if it is!) simply underlines @Facebook's chronic lack of #accountability & #SelfAwareness.

"Look how good we are for clearing up some of the sewage we pump out" is more an insult than any sort of justification.
Excellent #counterpoint [Thread] with plenty of references, on the wider growth of #misinformation networks in the #antivax space:

"making females sing when they shouldn't" @newscientist This will be an unpopular & probably ignored thread about #menopause #ecology #responsibility #society #power #inequality. So I am 51, BANG in the peri-menopause. #davinamenopause
I am also #PhD research fellow, trying thru brain fog to learn 2 new languages, in a new country & new work industry (academia) during a pandemic. So my GP prescribes me synthetic HRT after a 3 month headache & acute anxiety to allow me to keep working on #sustainability research
I am just one of 4 billion women who will experience(if they live long enough despite war, poverty, violence & environmental destruction to get to it?) waning of fertility. Half the world's humans. If we ALL took #hrt of any kind what does that mean for our non-human female kin?

Accept the #now. When you accept life as it unfolds, offering no resistance, you become aware of the choices available in this moment. This doesn’t imply giving up desires or being a victim, but discovering the #freedom to respond creatively.

#meditation Image
Accept the signals of your #body. Feel all of your body’s sensations. While the #mind lives in the past and the future, the body resides in the #now and never doubts itself. It knows the #truth and will guide you towards the most evolutionary choices.
Accept #responsibility and commit. With deepened awareness, you can make new choices, let go of #habits that no longer serve you, and commit to taking the next step to achieve your dreams
