El estado de nuestros montes y la crisis del territorio comparten mismos síntomas: desidia, desconocimiento y falta de comprensión de la realidad del medio rural. Problemas mucho más invisibles que las llamas. #EspañaVaciada
El fenómeno de la despoblación del mundo rural y de la pérdida de actividad aumenta el riesgo de propagación de incendios forestales. #IIFF

XERÉM | Duque de Caxias

O nome #Xerém, advém de uma corruptela aportuguesada do nome do #barqueiro inglês Jonh Charing, que, nos idos do Século XVII fazia #transporte em seus barcos do porto do Pilar para o interior da região, em direção ao Sítio do Couto.

Continua...
Xerém entrou definitivamente no mapa #econômico do País no final da II Guerra Mundial, com a instalação de uma empresa para fazer revisão dos #motores de avião, uma área que se desenvolveu muito a partir da #transformação do invento de Santos Dumont em arma de guerra.

Continua..
Com a derrota do trio Itália-Alemanha-Japão, em maior de 1945, a fábrica de Xerém foi adaptada para a produção de #caminhões sob licença da italiana "Alfa Romeo", dali saindo os veículos que, nos anos 60, dominavam o transporte #rodoviário nacional.

1. A tale of 2 #COVID19 case maps:

Left: Shows total cases (bigger circles, more cases) arcgis.com/apps/opsdashbo…

Right: Shows cases per 10,000 residents. Much easier to see very concerning #rural outbreaks in ID, LA, CO, ID
geodacenter.github.io/covid/map.html#

thread
2. Focusing on #COVID19 cases per 10,000 people helps identify locations that are likely going to exceed local hospital capabilities very quickly. See rank list here. Blaine, ID (tourist ski area) has the highest infection rate in the country

nytimes.com/interactive/20…
3. Many hospitals in #rural areas have very small ICUs if they have ICUs at all and limited capacity. See this thread from a small community hospital in #Louisiana overwhelmed by #COVID19

THREAD

What did #famers get in #Budget, where @nsitharaman claimed, "Our Govt is committed to the goal of doubling farmers income by 2022"

P.S-Acc to Dalwai committee,"real income of farmer, should increase by 10.4%/year,which has been increasing less than 2.5% in last 5 years
@nsitharaman @_YogendraYadav @aviksahaindia @sayantanbera @seemay @Ghair_Kanooni @Subytweets @sritara @srinivasanravi @DrSarvapriya @RURALINDIA Govt allocates 9.3% of the budget to #Agri, allied,irrigation & #rural development, which was 9.8% last year. Factoring Inflation, Real Increase in allocation is actually negative.

Is this enough ?
Will this increase #farm income, prop up #rural demand ?

@mkvenu1 @PreetiSMenon
@nsitharaman @_YogendraYadav @aviksahaindia @sayantanbera @seemay @Ghair_Kanooni @Subytweets @sritara @srinivasanravi @DrSarvapriya @RURALINDIA @mkvenu1 @PreetiSMenon Govt allocated 1.58 lakh crore to #agri, allied sectors & irrigation i.e. 5.2% of the total budget. Last years budget had allocated 1.52 lakh crore, which was 5.45% of the budget i.e. reduced spending !

👉Will this double #farm income by 2022 ?🙄

Au cours des récentes élections en Espagne, la presse (française) s’est surtout focalisée sur la question catalane et celle de l’entrée de l’extrême droite aux Cortes. Localement, on a aussi beaucoup parlé de désertification rurale… Allez Quichote, c’est le thread du #jeudcredi
En même temps, le sujet est bigrement social. Une manifestation tenue il y a quelques semaines a rassemblé plus de 50 000 personnes dans les rues de #Madrid pour protester contre la #désertification des zones #rurales du pays. elconfidencial.com/espana/2019-03…
Inutile de dire qu’en pleine campagne (électorale celle là) les politiques étaient attentifs

The landmark #SacharCommittee report that collected & analysed data on the social,economic & educational status of Muslims in India is now available in our resource section. Specifically,it tried to gauge if & why Muslims are under-represented in govt departments & other spheres.
Here are some of its findings. ruralindiaonline.org/resources/soci…
The 2001 Census showed that #literacy rates were low among Muslims, Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes.
The perception that religious conservatism among Muslims is a major factor for not accessing #education is incorrect. As with many Indians, the main reason for ‘educational backwardness’ of Muslims is abject poverty, which forces many children to drop out of school.

Over the weekend @desmoinesdem published my article about reaching #rural voters and it spurred some outstanding discussions. One thing I hear a lot from people who did not grow up in #Iowa is their discomfort with Iowans’ emphasis on how long their families have lived in Iowa.
They often see this as Iowans setting narrow parameters on who is a “real Iowan” and who is not. This is not the case at all and glosses over a fundamental misunderstanding of why my family’s Iowa longevity matters.
In the last 100 years rural America lost over 50% of its population. During the Great Depression, 1/3 of all farmers lost their farms. Most families never returned.
