Early last year, Instagram started banning certain hashtags. #fetish #rubber #leather #kinky #sexpositive, etc., were suddenly targets for censorship. Kinksters, sex workers, sex educators, leather men, rubber drones started falling away. Accounts getting deleted.
Not for explicitly sexual content. Not for anything that violated @Instagram’s terms of service. But for thinking we should be allowed to be who were are online—and on @Instagram—in the say way straight and vanilla people are allowed to be themselves.
Once again, look at my deleted photos: 3 of them were deleted for “sexual activity." There’s no sexual activity going on in any of them. What is there? A sex-positive older guy unashamed of his body, modeling underwear and swimwear, and goofing around a in a bar with a friend.

Thrilled to announce our new paper by Victoria Junquera and Adrienne Grêt-Regamey, "Assessing livelihood vulnerability using a Bayesian network: a case study in northern #Laos”, is now out in @ecologyandsociety1… #openaccess #WomenInSTEM. Short thread👇
This work analyzes the effect of #cashcrop production on livelihood #vulnerability, which we define in terms of the probability distribution of household income.
We use a #Bayesian network to estimate the probability distribution of household income, conditional on biophysical (e.g., yield), household (e.g., agricultural land), and commodity price variables.

#Rubber Industry - Inverted Duty Structure!

High import duty on raw materials and low import duty on finished products is hurting the domestic manufacturing industry, making it noncompetitive in the international market.

@VijayKedia1 @Arunstockguru @anshulbahl21
🧵 Image
1/ Import Duty

On Raw Material:
-Natural latex liquid has 70%import duty

On Finished Products:
-Latex products have only 5% and gloves 0% under the FTA with ASEAN countries.
2/ Duty Effects

-This has led to rising imports, hitting the domestic industry badly.

-The inverted duty structure has forced many rubber product manufacturers to turn traders of rubber goods and stop manufacturing because products have become uncompetitive.

New evidence that helps to understand the northern #Laos #rubber boom from our researcher Victoria Junquera and colleagues! Get the #openaccess paper @ELSenviron here and have a look at the thread for a broad overview of the results.
Agricultural expansion is a main cause of #deforestation and sometimes occurs in the form of “#cropbooms”—very rapid and intense expansion. Rubber expanded in a boom-like fashion in northern Laos and other parts of #SoutheastAsia in the last decade.
Following earlier work (, we conduct a spatially-explicit analysis of rubber expansion in two study areas during 2000-2017. We analyze the role of prices, context, forest protection, and imitation with a Bayesian network model and regression analysis.
