New evidence that helps to understand the northern #Laos #rubber boom from our researcher Victoria Junquera and colleagues! Get the #openaccess paper @ELSenviron here bit.ly/2zy06un 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 (bit.ly/3dHAQ3u), 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.

The #IMF says the "Great Lockdown" recession will likely be the worst since the Great Depression. Global economy projected to shrink by 3% in 2020. By contrast, in January, the IMF had forecast a global GDP expansion of 3.3% for this year. Details in chart below. Table: @IMFNews
IMF: Partial global rebound to 5.8% in 2021 “assumes the #pandemic fades in the 2nd half of 2020, & that policy actions taken by countries are effective in preventing widespread firm bankruptcies, extended job losses, & system-wide financial strains.” #WEO ow.ly/ZLYi50zccSJ

#IbnArabi (d. 1240) is famed for his monistic doctrine of #wahdatalwujud although #WilliamChittick ibnarabisociety.org/articles/qunaw… has pointed out he never used the term preferring al-wujud al-Haqq or similar #SufiMetaphysicsContested 1/
In the immediate generation after him the meaning of God as the only existent or rather the ‘absolute being’ (al-wujud al-mutlaq) was debated by his step-son Sadr al-Din Qunawi (d. 1274) with the Avicennian philosopher Nasir al-Din al Tusi (d. 1274) books.google.co.uk/books/about/al… 2/
Ibn ‘Arabi’s metaphysics were rapidly adopted by Persian poets like Maghribi (d. 1408) and by theologians leading to further contestations between Sa’d al-Din Taftazani (d. 1389) and ‘Ali al-Jurjani (d. 1413) the famous disputants at the court of Timur (d. 1405) 3/

#Europe is the midst of its #5G decision, with all eyes currently set on Germany. But there is a second crucial theatre for 5G competition that regrettably gets very little attention: #SoutheastAsia. Thread:
Right at China’s doorstep #Huawei has a long history and market share dominance in the strategically important region. Of the ten @ASEAN countries only Singapore & Vietnam have so far opted for Huawei’s competitors. 1/7
For the less affluent #SEA states cost-benefit calculation is central & so far pretty clear: Huawei is cheap & offers leading technology. For them costs are less tangible: Some #SoutheastAsian states rely on #US security. But how will US react to UK decision? Will it at all? 2/7

1) This #CDAN blind looks solved & exposes yet another sicko crime network, this time #SoutheastAsia. It connects several interesting items to #QAnon #crumbs. Don't eat while reading.

Lets unravel it.

2) Starting with the country in question, it's #Laos. This is the Kings Romans Casino in a remote corner of Laos. Matches the #blind. Poverty? Dead poor. Ranks 9 of 10 in the region, and #135 globally. More about the casino...

#TheStorm #TheStormIsHere #WeThePeople #QArmy
3) The blind says that "about a decade ago" it was funded. See below, the lease with the government was signed in 2007, that fits. It's a 99 year lease. And the government gets a 20% cut. Ding ding ding.
