Recently, @simularity, a US-based geospatial #artificialintelligence company, published a report alleging fishermen's shits destroyed the #SouthChinaSea, based on chlorophyll a analysis.
Does its allegation hold the water? In fact, chlorophyll a is everywhere at sea.
To understand how chlorophyll a usually looks like in the sea, we start with @sentinel 2a satellite images.
Chlorophyll a can be seen everywhere on the sea surface, and chlorophyll a will accumulate around certain long-term suspended floating objects.
This phenomenon not only exists in the #SouthChinaSea, but can be seen everywhere in the world. As it's shown in the marine chlorophyll a distribution via Japan's Himawari satellite, the phenomenon also exists in the Philippine Sea and around the waters of the Philippines.

.@ShivshankaMenon "Opinion in strategic community in India has turned increasingly negative on China & not just because of what happened on the border last summer or the situation right now. Several factors that have brought stress into the relationship." 3/n

🚨 New Article 🚨 dissects the criminological components of Alberta's Supervised Consumption Site (SCS) Report. I'll summarize and extrapolate below. 🧵 1/15

There are countless reasons why the Report isn't worth the paper it's written on. #WastedTaxDollars 2/15

With its continued dev't of #ASBMs & associated targeting architecture, #China continues to work on changing the game in #SCS & beyond—but so too does US w/ its own developments & countermeasures.…

But by no means is the game over for @USNavy, in the #SouthChinaSea or anywhere else.

Thread: The Shameful Closure of North America’s Busiest Safe Consumption Site by @Filtermag_org written by @heyysham & Taylor Fleming / September 24, 2020
We 🇨🇦 may like to think of ourselves as more progressive than our southern neighbours when it comes to drug policy. Truth is, we’re only ever 1 election away fr. regression & fear-mongering based on stigma, racism & a refusal 2 acknowledge the evidence behind harm reduction 2/25
Although Health 🇨🇦 has reiterated current federal support for safe consumption sites (SCS) & endorsed programs providing a safe supply of drugs, each province & territory is ultimately in control of its own healthcare. This🍃harm reduction services in a precarious position. 3/25

August 31 is International #Overdose Awareness Day. Every year I reflect on all the people we’ve lost, but especially Arielle. Here we are at 18 - careless, happy assholes. She was brilliant, snarky, a talented musician, and she died at age 26 from a poisoned drug supply. Image
In the last 2 years of her life, Arielle went to jail, went to rehab, and “got clean.”

Jail didn’t save her.
Rehab didn’t save her.
Abstinence didn’t save her.

#SCS could’ve saved her. #safesupply could’ve saved her.
#MOUD could’ve saved her.
#Naloxone could’ve saved her.
There is no excuse for her death or for any of the 71,000 overdose deaths in 2019, not when evidence-based treatments for #OUD exist. Not one damn more person should die alone from a treatable condition in the year #2020.

Golly, we ❤️ evidence.

The federal Health Minister @PattyHajdu said today: “The evidence shows us that supervised-consumption sites and services save lives and can provide people who use drugs with access to health and social services and treatment,”
#FactsNotFearAB #SCS
From @lethnewsnow

The evidence she is referring to is ethical and peer-reviewed. ❤️

At a time when Canadians are talking about safe supply, decriminalization and regulation #abpoli is in the dark ages thinking that residential addictions treatment
is the only treatment available. There are tons of types of addictions treatments. We need them all, because one type of treatment modality doesn't work for everyone.

Here is the dangerous part of residential treatment during a fentanyl crisis:

2/ccp We have to make a distinction between DJT's approach to China policy(correct) and his approach to Rest of World(flawed). The core of the China policy is spot on & only needs to be adapted to the demands of diplomacy & 21st C narrative.
3/ccp Paradoxically the critique is both correct & wrong. If Trump wasn't a "bull in China shop" viz #CCP #China, World would still be debating how to compete with #PRC through investment in infrastructure, education & R&D, not CCP #spying, #HK & #Xinjiang…

“If you think the harm reduction obsession is really successful when it comes to preserving human lives, than I invite you to take a stroll down East Hastings on the downtown east side of Vancouver."

#abpoli #ableg #cdnpoli

It’s fascinating that @jkenney chooses to use East Hastings as an example of failed programs.

It is.

But not for the reasons that Kenney makes it seem.

East Hastings was used as a human dumping ground when BC made brutal cuts to healthcare and mental health.


Were it not for the #scs in East Hastings, the loss of life of people who were abandoned would have been even more catastrophic than it has been.

#SCS save lives.

@jkenney’s continued failure to acknowledge that betrays his complete lack of understanding of addiction.

1 - The AUMA has issued a statement because of their concerns that the @Alberta_UCP didn’t listen re: Election changes.

The @Albertadoctors are holding a non-confidence vote in @shandro.

Alberta has seen some of the largest protests in its history.

2 - Teachers and parents across Alberta are worried for their students and kids safety.

@jkenney “travels” the province in misleading photo ops.

Issues managers present misleading info without context daily.

3 - Residents of NE Calgary struggle to get the attention and supports they need following one of the largest natural disasters in Canadian History.

Addictions experts are raising the alarm on the #UCP’s march to close #scs.

A few comments:
1/ US position of 4 yrs ago was neutral. Since then, China's been peacefully negotiating with concerned countries and agreements are about to be reached. The #USA stirring of old embers of dispute is certainly a disservice to peace and stability of the #Southsea
2/ USA is not a signing party to the UNCLOS (UN Convention on the Law of the Sea). It's now coercing China to be bound by UNCLOS, a treaty it doesn't recognize itself.
3/ Arbitration predicates on both parties agreeing to solve the dispute by the private tribunal paid by both parties. The arbitration was unilaterally demanded and paid by the Philippines under the military threat of the US marine. It has no legal validity.

IMAGINE for a moment that you woke up tomorrow to the news that the entire retail #alcohol supply in the #US was randomly contaminated with deadly levels of #fentanyl. A one ounce shot could put you into respiratory arrest in 120 seconds, quickly followed by cardiac arrest.

The proper administration of #NARCAN within minutes or #RescueBreathing is your only hope for survival; #911 and #EMS can’t get there that fast.

Now IMAGINE for a moment what the governmental and civil society response would be to this news...

Fmr Indian FonSec @VGokhale59 writes on India, SE Asia & SCS:

"The real choice is not between China and America — it is between keeping the global commons open for all or surrendering the right to choose one’s partners for the foreseeable future" 1/…
Gokhale: "benign American mil presence has afforded countries the opportunity to pursue econ prosperity w/o substantial increases in their own defence expenditures or having to look over their shoulders. No grp of nations has benefitted more from [US] presence...than...ASEAN." 2/
Fmr Indian FonSec Gokhale: "Chinese military postures, on the other hand, give cause for concern...Their [SCS] territorial claim itself is tenuous, neither treaty-based nor legally sound. They act in ways that are neither benign nor helpful for long-term peace and stability." 3/

Os traigo un negocio aburrido que normalmente no compraría para el largo plazo, pero que se ha puesto a un precio que merece la pena considerarlo para sacarse una rentabilidad razonable en el medio plazo.

Capitalización: 56M
Beneficio anual normalizado: 10M
Balance saneado Image

Venden sofás en el Reino Unido desde sus 100 tiendas y 9 centros de distribución.

El negocio que no se ha visto muy afectado por las ventas digitales, porque la gente prefiere probar un sofá antes de comprarlo... somos así de caprichosos...😂

Ventas estables, Bº al alza Image

Y miren donde se ha venido el precio con el miedo por el cierre de las tiendas durante dos meses por el COVID. Ya están abiertas...

En otras ocasiones hubo rebote importante en esos niveles.

He comprado acciones para mi cartera.

1. da leggere #GiuseppeLoBianco su #SaverioLodato che sollecita "l'apertura degli archivi di Stato italiano e statunitensi" su stragi #Falcone e #Borsellino.… Le rivelazioni di #SaverioLodato sono emerse grazie a #Atlantide di @andreapurgatori
2. vi voglio aiutare a capire. Chi ha in mano sicuramente le intercettazioni dei rapporti tra lo Stato italiano e la mafia? La #NSA: "E' la più grande, la più costosa e la più tecnologicamente sofisticata organizzazione di spionaggio che il mondo abbia mai conosciuto"
3. la #NSA, grande 3 volte la #CIA, ha lo #SpecialCollectionService (SCS). Noi sappiamo alcune informazioni fattuali sull'SCS solo grazie ai file di #Snowden. Cosa dicono? Che l'SCS ha come missione di raccogliere intelligence sulla leadership di un Paese.

This morning at the McDougall Centre we are hearing the findings of the provinces report on supervised consumption sites. The panel examined the negative aspects of the sites, including social disorder and economic disruptions to businesses. #yyc #scs Image

I also walked around the Sheldon Chumir before heading into work this morning. There was about a dozen people outside, which is fairly typical in my experience. A few security guards wandering around as well.
