Since we’re talking abt #TetragonFinancial:

Soon it’ll be 5 yrs since tht infamous Forbes clean slate/#altasset IPO article...

...and basically it’s been crickets since:…

So what’s the deal?!
Well, NO complaints from an operating perspective:

#TFG delivered 10% NAV returns in last 5 yrs & transitioned to a true #altasset mgmt firm...

...ignore rest of the portfolio, it’s jst surplus filler they’ve jammed into Polygon funds/addtl seed capital for its asset mgmt co’s.
And forget #redherrings like #Ripple...

...blame me, cos I pushed ‘em to add some #crypto #pixiedust to the portfolio, but I never expected it wd be Ripple! 😆

Bt this is MORE than balanced out by their asset mgmt jewel in the crown...

...#Equitix, now their largest hldg!

The #G7 this weekend renounced its role as #globalhealth leader, @kentbuse and I argue in @bmj_latest:…

A thread on what next for global health & #healthsecurity.
Speaking at #G20 Rome #GlobalHealthSummit in May, German Chancellor #Merkel had raised the question, “if not us, who?” to end the global #Covid19 #pandemic.

At #G7UK this past weekend, #G7 responded with "Not us," committing to donate 870mn #vaccine doses when the need is 11bn.
Instead of engaging with recommendations of @TheIndPanel to strengthen #pandemic preparedness & the #globalhealth system (, strongly backed by @antonioguterres (), #G7 noted it would "explore" different proposals.

de #vaccinatiegraad neemt toe 🥳 en de #COVID19NL transmissie in de bevolking is hoog👎

dit betekent dat we steeds meer besmettingen gaan zien bij gevaccineerden. De vraag is: is dit erg? ImageImage
antwoord: 'it depends'

vaccinatie beschermt zeer goed tegen ernstige ziekte (ZH-opname) dus besmetting kan in principe weinig kwaad

echter, er gaan mogelijk een keer patiënten in het ZH komen die wel gevaccineerd waren, want bescherming is bijna 100% (en geen 100%)
verwachting 2

studie uit Amerika:
- volledig gevaccineerd zorgpersoneel
- periode van twee maanden
- 1% had een positieve #COVID19 test

grootste risico: 'high community transmission'

Dit gaan we ook in NL zien onder gevaccineerden… Image

Acabo de escuchar el INTERROGATORIO -que es lo que en verdad fué- al que #Majul & cia sometieron a @mauriciomacri hace un ratito en @lanacionmas y me quedan un par de consideraciones personales que pueden o no ser compartidas
* #Macri tiene muy claro lo que se hizo bien y lo q no
* Hace mucho que no escucho en NADIE semejante nivel de autocrítica
Si el #perionismo tuviera un poco de vergūenza deberia hacer algo similar, pedir disculpas y muchos irse definitivamente a su casa
* Como nos sucede a todos los seres humanos en cualquier ámbito de la vida ....
... muchas veces es necesario alejarse y tomar distancia para lograr ver claro y mas de cerca. No es un pecado sino una virtud
* Cuando le reclamaron el por que le entregaba pauta a ciertos medios militantes com #C5N, con su respuesta #Macri dejó en claro su compromiso con la

@mbaldin @joaoamoedonovo Diferencie as coisas e atribua algum senso de #prioridades para uma nação continental, tal qual 👉🏿🇧🇷🔫:

"@ArthurLira_ minimiza troca na @petrobras e destaca apoio do @govbr à autonomia do #BC @BancoCentralBR"…

"Rodrigo Pacheco @rpsenador diz que #Bolsonaro tem prerrogativa para nomear #militares" | #Prerrogativa toma precedência sobre #estratégia de recuperação da nação? 🤔 É só concordar ou ponderar?… @Enfoque MS

@zwoodford @HRMLovelace @hfxgov @WayeMason @LindellSmithHFX @HalifaxLabour So these private contractors will continue to be able to avoid paying their employees a living wage.

This new policy is looking less and less impressive.

@CUPELocal108 @cupenovascotia @Tim_Bousquet
@zwoodford @HRMLovelace @hfxgov @WayeMason @LindellSmithHFX @HalifaxLabour @CUPELocal108 @cupenovascotia @Tim_Bousquet @communitycathy just asked the staffer (Andrew ?) about the living wage policy.

Conveniently, it doesn't apply to these multi-year contracts.
@zwoodford @HRMLovelace @hfxgov @WayeMason @LindellSmithHFX @HalifaxLabour @CUPELocal108 @cupenovascotia @Tim_Bousquet @communitycathy Turns out #Halifax’s much ballyhooed #LivingWage policy won’t affect #ContractedOut solid waste services for next several years.

@hfxgov staff were successful with their end-run around the policy.

How incredibly disappointing.

Seeehr langer #Thread dazu wie #EndeGelände von der vermeintlich „demokratischen Mitte“ und der Polizei kriminalisiert wird.
Wie #FDP #CDU rechte Narrative puschen. #Mittextremismus
Und wie der Frame: „Linksextreme Gefahr“unkritisch von Lokalmedien aufgegriffen wird.
Die #FDP und #CDU in #Bremen stellten diese beiden Anträge in der Bremischen Bürgerschaft.
Sie fordern eine genaue Beobachtung #Kriminalisierung von Klimaaktivismus.

Die Agenda: #EndeGelände und linke, emanziptaorische Gruppen und Räume, wie das alte Sportamt, zu bekämpfen.
CDU inszeniert sich als „bürgerliche Mitte“ ohne Extremismus.
Prof.Salzborn sagt:
„das ist eine Verfälschung, weil wir antidemokratische Strömungen in allen politischen Milieurs attestieren können/nicht nur von den äußeren Rändern, sondern gerade aus der Mitte d Gesellschaft.“

#WeThePeople are in big, horrible and #YUGE trouble because of #BadPlanning. I want to tell you a story - a modern day #parable.

Two cattle rustlers working on an #InsideJob to steal veal, decided to test their newfound Sharps Buffalo Rifle.
The young rustlers' Sharps 1874 Buffalo Rifle test worked just fine - dropping one of the wealthy land-owning rancher's grazing steer dead with a single bullet of such tremendous caliber - "it blowed a hole in him you that could throw a cat through."
However, the folly of the rife-testing young and impatient American cattle rustlers became immediately apparent when a hair-raising #helicopter versus #car chase exciting ensued.

"Temporary cessation" Who are you kidding?
Its a fucking ban.
MDN is the only NGO that works as an HRD on the most sensitive HR issues in Maldives.
The govt has succumbed to the pressure from local terrorists - much of those are allegedly revealed in the controversial report.
The #Maldives govt has failed to take action against those who spread hate and threaten people behind a religious facade.
"The maintenance of public order and communal harmony"... what a load of crap!
The govt has effectively #empowered the #terrorists by banning the only HRD NGO who dared assess the rising #extremism and #radicalism in #Maldives.
Now the terrorists are attacking whoever who recognised the NGO's sincere work since 2004.

Ten #MMT tips to remember on #TaxDay:
1. Federal #taxes don't fund federal spending, so let's #decouple these two important tools.
2. Taxes offset #Government spending.
3. It's a matter of #logic: #dollars must be spent into existence (by the Gov) first, in order for us to use some of those $ to pay taxes
4. #Taxing for #revenue is for local states/municipalities, not the #sovereign issuer of the #currency.
5. Taxing excessive wealth protects #democracy from #Oligarchy and protects us from abusive market power
6. Taxing #pollution & #speculation to reduce such activities, not to "fund" #healthcare and #education.
