Now we have dissaggregated @StateBank_Pak data on #Pakistan's #trade performance for the full of the FY22.

This thread will show performance in #values. not #volumes. Keep in mind FY22 was extraordinary in terms of high #prices, both for #imports and #exports. 👇👇👇🧵
1\ #Exports reached record highs, both #goods and #services, increasing by 26.6 and 17.1% respectively w.r.t. FY21. Good export prices and a decent #export response played a role here. Note: June 2022 is preliminary. Figures are Jul-Jun FY22 and
2\ #Pakistan #export growth was generalized by main destination. Particularly noticeable are increases in shipments to #USA and to #China - the two largest destinations.

#India is home to many storytelling #traditions. Each artform narrates a beautiful #story.

In this #series, we bring to you the different modes of #storytelling.

The first in the series is #Kolam.
In this post, #Kolam is drawn by expert Hema Kannan @lotus_shakti. She very beautifully has drawn a cradle & Krishna's little feet popping out of it. This elaborate Kolam aesthetically narrates the story of Janmashtami. This is the power of Kolam & the stories it carries with it.
#Kolam #art is drawn using rice flour, as per age-old conventions, on any flat surface using bare fingers. The #pattern begins with a #series of #dots that are interconnected with each other through #geometric #lines & #curves.

A #story of an #afternoon of 1971 #Bengal.
A beautiful,fair glowing skinned,#generalclass, #traditional, #Hinduwoman used to live with her #husband (who used to work in railways) and her 15yrs old #son & 4 years old #Daughter.
She was also a prime worshipper of Maa Durga...
Some years ago, when her #son was of 13 yrs, he started showing his interest in #Politics and started being with #hinduextremists.
He also started going to #akharas,for #gym work and #shastravidya.
Onto which he was #punished by not given #food for a #day by...
his mother, as she wanted him to be an #Engineer and become #rich.
The son left his interest, and started #studying in guidence of his #mother.
It was the time of #Bangladeshliberation #war, when he went to a nearby #Temple with his mother and #sister one #evening ...

Not also from right-wingers, anti-migrant rethoric is also fueled from left-wing such Haiti, says if migrant (usually from US) work in Haiti it will looted Haiti resource and workers ("poor" Haitian is slave of "rich" US) #Haiti #US
Indeed. Haiti must empower local worker over migrant workers (mostly from US), prioritize local investment over foreign investment (as US and Haiti is "strategic" partner). Remember when American "investment" in Haiti displaced Haitian worker?
#Haiti #US #Imperialism
One of U.S. "investment" is Tchako SA, an rice company based in Haiti, actually a subsidiary of Riceland Foods of Arkansas, US. Says it is only benefit US farmer over Haitian Farmers. One of evidence is displacement of Haitian farmer.

This cartoon from @thetoonguy today in @TheHinduMag today, which captures the reality of knowledge supremacy, triggered an old memory that had been buried deep inside for 13 years.
The Children's #Science Congress was taking place in Baramati, Maharashtra in 2008. I had travelled with an incredible bunch of geohydrologists from ACWADAM, Pune, to see how #science was being encouraged for school goers.
I landed up in a room where children from across the country were making presentations on #biological #sciences. One presenter was from #Nagaland & she made a fantastic presentation on local #rice varieties in her village.

Why do I think #Gold, #Bitcoin are about to tumble? Because of my cross-market-analyses approach with >100 charts pointing to a deflationary bust AND the Elliott Wave structures for Gold, Bitcoin and USD. Let's try investigate 1) Deflationary Thesis and 2) Elliott Wave-structures
The Deflationary Thesis is due to the patterns shaping up in all commodities. Commodities drive inflation. First GSCI Commodity Index - a very clear Ending Diagonal Triangle (Descending Wedge). Calls for DEFLATIONARY BUST before MAJOR SECULAR BOTTOM.
#Wheat which is part of #Commodities setting direction for Inflation. Same pattern! Descending Wedge. Calls for Deflationary Bust - before Major SECULAR BOTTOM. Deflation before New Inflationary Regime!

Wanted to analyze #Pakistan's #export performance, benchmarking with structural and aspirational countries, along 4 dimensions - #growth, #diversification, #quality, #survival. Thread below: 👇👇👇
1/n Since the turn of the century, #Pakistan has become a more inward oriented economy, with exports/GDP falling from 16 to 10%.
2/n As a result, #Pakistan's share of world markets fell from 16USD to 12USD out of every 1000USD traded between 1990 and 2019. #Bangladesh moved from 5 to 18USD in the same period. #Vietnam from 14 to 113USD!!!

🚨 Declan Rice update:

* A thread on news confirmed by what I’ve been told/sources very close to this.

* Not about good/bad news, it’s about providing clarity/truth.

* Hopefully provides transparency on a lot of whispers on here.

* Save the “already knew this” for elsewhere.
Firstly -

#Chelsea are very much interested in bringing Declan back to the club. The interest is being driven by Frank’s desire of a true DM and his desire of Rice himself. He is Frank’s #1 target.

The board at #CFC like #Rice & want to back Frank as they have done.
It is obvious to the parties involved that Declan is wanting a move back to #CFC. This isn’t a secret.

NEVERTHELESS, Declan is limited to what he can say/do, due to the legality of it all.

Declan CANNOT “push” for a move/force #WHU into anything until an official move is made.

Data from the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) show that in 2015, Nigeria spent nearly $2.9bn in drink and food importation. By 2017 the figure had risen to $4.1bn.
These figures are far from the $22bn the immediate past Minister of Agriculture, Audu Ogbe quoted in 2018 as the amount the country spends on importing food annually.
In November 2018, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) in its World Markets and Trade Report
projected that Nigeria’s rice imports will rise 13 percent in 2019 to 3.4 million metric tonnes making it the world’s biggest rice importer after China.
Nigeria’s Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed says the projection is fake. According to him, “Nigeria has been

Just after its independence in the early 1960s #Nigeria was self sufficient with regards to rice.

In that decade, annual production and consumption numbers were generally between 230 and 280 KMT.
By 1979 with the increase in population to 79 million people from 54 million a decade earlier, consumption had risen to 845KMT p.a., whilst production numbers had fallen behind at 372KMT.

Why did Nigerian eating habits begin to shift in this period?
The shift towards rice began in the big cities as people got busier and had less time to prepare heavier meals like yam or cassava.

There are simply more "fast" options to eat your rice with than yams.

This is the same reason why noodles has gotten really popular.

So, that long-promised lowdown on rice and slavery. There's a couple of things to understand from the off: "jollof wars" might be playful but they indicate a long West African history with rice.
That history also means that industrial head hunting actually began during the Transatlantic Slave Trade. Rice has been cultivated in West Africa for centuries although the variety native to the region was not considered to have high yields.
Soon, the WA strains were largely replaced with Asian oryza sativa strains and is now mainly cultivated in Nigeria, Mali, Sierra Leone and along the Ghana-Togo border. Locals continue to cultivate it because they consider the native rice more filling and sweeter... (call break..)
