The list of truly fundamental needs for human life is a short one.

Food is on that list.

▶️This is how climate change impacted crops in 2019◀️

This is terrifying.

*North America*

The midwest was plagued with heavy rain, leading to flooding & causing major challenges with corn, soybeans & other crops

This was widely documented by farmers themselves: #noplant19

What dose this say?

The #Iran forbidds his #chess player to travel to the championship in #Moscow. This latest spell by the #Iranian Ministry of #Sports is in response to an incident in mid-December during a tournament in #Spain.
Grandmasters Parham #Maghsoodloo and Amin #Tabatabaei had #played against an #Israeli #FIDE champion in a blitz tournament. Competition with #Israelis has been banned from #Iranian athletes for 36 years.
Now the best chess player of #Iran Alireza #Firouzja rejects this ban of the #Mullahs and wants to play in #Moskau under #FIDE flag. #IranProtests

This is where my ideas go to grow. Since my return from South Africa - conclusion of the Feminist Giant World Tour - those notebooks have been whispering “We are waiting for you.” As I rested after 3-month tour, I knew that pile was home to all that I saw & experienced. With time
It has been such a privilege and gift to speak at all the places I’ve been to since September. So many incredible people along the way and rich, wonderful ideas that I brought home. Time to process them.
Earlier this year, I went on a 5-city tour of #Spain for @Capitan_Swing’s Spanish edition of my first book Headscarves and Hymens: Why the Middle East Needs a Sexual Revolution. I went to Córdoba on my 2 days off in the middle of that tour. And I’m still filling the notebooks.

-A interview of a antisemitisem scientist-

"In polls, many #Germans are annoyed by the thematization of the #Holocaust: One third is annoyed that the crimes committed against the #Jews are still held up today. And 41 percent think that #Jews talk about it too often ..."
The feeling of being held up is apparently present in many, they feel attacked. It is quite paradoxical: Although in surveys almost 90 percent say that belonging to #Germany is the knowledge of the history of National Socialism. Nevertheless, especially the #youth find today:
My #grandfather was already no longer involved, at some point is also good times. Interestingly, this is not just a #German phenomenon, but in the whole of #Europe, such as in #Poland and #Hungary, but also in #Spain or the #UnitedKingdom.

1/ Here’s a unique coin I love to show my students @UniofOxford. A fascinating window into the early history of #Islam in #Iran. Minted in Sistan, ca. 691-2. One side portrays the #Sasanian king of kings; the other has the Islamic profession of faith (the shahada) but in Pahlavi!
2/ Pahlavi (otherwise known as #Zoroastrian Middle #Persian) was the language of the #Sassanian kings and the #Zoroastrian clergy. It remained a prestige language in #Iran even after the Islamic conquest
3/ What makes the coin so unique is that it translates the shahada into an essentially #Zoroastrian idiom: “yazd-ēw bē ōy any yazd nēst mahmat paygāmbar ī yazd” (There is one God, without any other, #Muhammad is the #Prophet of God)

Disproportionate under #UK law

“The shambolic ‘arrogant’ attempts at extradition by #Spain should be a source of deep embarrassment to them. This is their 3rd attempt to extradite @ClaraPonsati - they stand accused of abusing the EAW process" @AamerAnwar…
@ClaraPonsati @AamerAnwar "There appear to be glaring contradictions in a 'rambling' warrant stretching to some 59 pages, which jumps from 'rebellion' to 'sedition'. @ClaraPonsati is accused of sedition, but it's only briefly mentioned on 2 pages, with no clarity as to her role"…
@ClaraPonsati @AamerAnwar "This EAW has not been certified and no further action will be taken" to arrest @ClaraPonsati quickly becomes "it is not disproportionate, it is just currently lacking in essential information", a "miscommunication".

The rectification has Don @JosepBorrellF's dabs all over it.

#Bombshell: Ex-#DisneyStudios CEO, #RichardCook was found on the flight logs for #JeffreyEpstein’s #LolitaExpress to travel to #LittleSaintJames. #Disney owns #ABC who buried #Epstein’s crimes while children got raped & murdered! Cook started #Legendary pictures owned by #China!
I definitely think there is something fishy here. #DickCook started off as a monorail operator at #Disneyland. How does someone go from running a train at an amusement park to heading distribution for Disney films within 10 years? Are they promoting #Pedophiles from within?!
Correction to the original tweet, #DickCook started #DickCookStudios w #China and worked with #LegendaryPictures in 2011 after #Disney.

Chatter about possible @USTreasury sanctions to #Spain owing to @sanchezcastejon continued support to both @NicolasMaduro & Boliburgeoisie. During last visit to DC, someone high up in the @realDonaldTrump gov said: “we’re gonna miss @FedericaMog when @JosepBorrellF gets in...” 🧵
Reality is #Spain, along w #DominicanRepublic & the #USA, has become a top destination for the criminals that have looted #Venezuela. While Federal Agencies try to keep up with incoming chavista criminality and make life that bit more difficult, Spanish institutions see no evil..
Or as that country’s anti corruption tsar told me, they are overwhelmed with Venezuelan thugs. Add to that this little fact: corruption probes have to be pitched to judges who, for the most part, couldn’t care less about a resource rich banana republic. Often, cases can’t proceed

Still processing the powerful discussion we had today in our #MA @ARUSociology session on #DecolonisingtheUniversity. A student shared her experiences of growing up in apartheid South Africa & feeling validated & 'seen' by the reading material. Became emotional as she talked
about how #apartheid affected her secondary & higher education in South Africa. Another shared his experiences of racism & racial abuse at his place of work in London, and how he'd envisioned a different kind of life in the UK when he migrated from Nigeria three years
ago. A third talked about being British in Zimbabwe and how her family had tried to convince her that the 'whites' were there to help the 'black people' and how she learnt to resist the 'civilising' narrative of #empire. A fourth discussed how her godfather rolled his eyes at her

Missing Children’s Statistics
One Missing Child Is One Too Many

The lack of a common definition of “missing child,” and a common response to the issue, results in few reliable statistics on the scope of the problem around the world.
2) #missingchild #missingchildren
Even with this challenge, we know that:

In Australia, an estimated 20,000 children are reported missing every year.

There’s a massive story breaking in #Egypt over past few days.

Billionaire businessman & Actor who was an ally of @AlsisiOfficial & worked on large construction projects has fled to Spain

He’s releasing videos exposing the HUGE corruption and theft by the army. #محمد_على_فضحهم
He says he’s received multiple death threats

#Egypt embassy in Spain has asked him to come and “solve his differences” with the Gov (where have we heard that before? #Khashoggi)

There is genuine concern for his life

#محمد_على_فضحهم #محمد_علي
According to #MuhammadAli his company was asked to build 2 million pound gateway to burial ground where @AlsisiOfficial wanted to bury his mother

Sisi’s wife spent 2.5 million on alterations to a Presidential rest stop b/c “she didn’t want to sleep in same room as Suzan Mubarak”

The second highest ranking officer of the #Egyptian Embassy in #Spain was detained in #Madrid for allegedly abusing his wife and daughter but his diplomatic immunity has protected him from any further legal action.… via @@euroweeklynews h/t @KhaledEibid
“The victim...was made aware of her right to police protection & at first she told officers that she would press charges.According to official sources however, representatives of the #Egyptian Embassy arrived at the scene of the crime to convince her not to make any allegations.”

I'm reading through a document on #ECHR guidelines. Nothing to do, though, with the right to a fair trial (Article 6 ECHR)... where the violations preventing #FreeCatalanPoliticalPrisoners leave you punchdrunk. Just one article after another by #Spain, violated!
This is the "Guide on Article 5 of the European Convention on Human Rights. Right to liberty and security".

I'm still reeling. This is worse. It has to do with "arbitrary detention" on which the #UN #WGAD issued a severe Opinion ... that Spain pissed on.

"188. The second limb of Article 5 §3 does not give judicial authorities a choice between either bringing an accused to trial within a reasonable time or granting him provisional release pending trial..."

Ministry of Truth
@JosepBorrellF asks #Spain's Superior Court of Justice to close #Catalan delegations in London, Geneva & Berlin for "damaging Spain's image" based on documents intercepted by his toytown spy network and social media posts.

The delegation is accused of ''retweeting messages in favour of Gibraltar" and criticising Borrell's comment on us history: "they only had to kill a handful of Indians".

In this case, surely it was Borrell was "harming #Spain's image"?

Borrell's toytown diplomats found it "damaging to #Spain's image" that "there were barely 20 people" at an event with Parliament VP, @josepcosta: an Estelada on a table "looked like a coffin" and "people mocked it on social media"

No-show of #Spanish police and intelligence officials - Trapote, Gonzalo, Pérez de los Cobos - before commission investigating terror attacks #Catalonia, Aug '17. Disrespect of #Catalan institutions and still no news of what they knew.

Ex-chief of CNP Cat, Sebastián Trapote
Dir. CNI, Félix Sanz Roldán
Ex-chief of Civil Guard Cat, Ángel Gonzalo
Interior Ministry rep. to Security Commission Cat, Diego Pérez de los Cobos
Dir. of CITCO, José Luis Olivera Serrano
Ex-DG of CNP, Germán López Iglesias

#Spain’s secret service (#CNI) admitted “contacts” with Abdelbaki Es Satty, the mastermind behind the terror cell but didn't clarify their frequency, duration or remuneration, only that they were within the “protocol established for convicts” 17/11/2017

Why @krls & @toni_comin must be allowed to take their seats in the @Europarl_EN
"The essential step to become an MEP is to receive enough support. #Catalans understood this and delivered massive majority support to @krls, @toni_comin, @ClaraPonsati, and the whole list"

"#Spain's #SupremeCourt should suspend the national arrest warrants against @krls & @toni_comin. Both now enjoy immunity that the Supreme can't interfere with. They must decide to respect the law or not, but the little credibility they still have in Europe is at risk."

Asked whether @krls & @toni_comin must swear to uphold the Constitution in person before #Spain's Central Electoral Board before taking office, @boye_g said the rule was out-of-date, against EU law, and, if the #SupremeCourt got involved in this battle, it would surely lose.
