"Why is the death rate about 75 percent lower in many countries?" asked Dr. #JaneOrient, executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons.
The reference is to a country-based analysis updated Sept. 20 that shows a gap between countries that treat #COVID19 early or prophylactically with #HydroxyChloroquine and those that, like the #US, discourage or prohibit its use.
"The #COVID19 pandemic struck #America nine months before a presidential election, turning basic medical activities like testing and treatment into partisan battlegrounds,"...

In a recent paper, with Alexander Chudik @DallasFed, M Hashem Pesaran @USCDornsife, @mraissi80 @IMFNews & @arebucci1 @JHUCarey, we develop a threshold-augmented dynamic multi-country model (#TGVAR) to quantify the #macroeconomic effects of #Covid19: econ.cam.ac.uk/research/cwpe-… 1/n Image
Key challenges with the empirical #economic analysis of #Covid19 include the following: how to identify the shock, how to account for its non-linear effects, & how to quantify its effects while accounting for spillovers, common global factors, network effects and uncertainty. 2/n
We contribute to the literature by addressing these issues in a coherent multi-country framework. We offer an identification strategy for the #Covid19 shock considering that a synthetic control method cannot be applied in the context of a global #pandemic. 3/n

#US pushes arms sales surge to #Taiwan, needling #China

The #UnitedStates plans to sell as many as seven major weapons systems, including mines, cruise missiles and drones to Taiwan, four people familiar with the discussions said

👍💪🇺🇸🇹🇼💪👍
reuters.com/article/us-usa…
The weapons packages from Lockheed Martin Co, Boeing and General Atomics are moving their way through the export process, three people familiar with the status of the deals on Capitol Hill said, and a notification to Congress is expected within weeks.
A Lockheed Martin-made High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS), essentially a truck-based rocket launcher, is among the weapons Taiwan wants, people familiar with the negotiations said. Taiwan also seeks to buy sophisticated anti-tank missiles.

Why are many, if not the majority, of #deathpenalty cases amounting to arbitrary executions, whether carried out in #Iran, #SaudiArabia the #UnitedStates or elsewhere? This is a long thread providing some explanations.
International law imposes severe restrictions on the use of death penalty and demands strict safeguards. Non-compliance with these restrictions and safeguards leads to arbitrary and thus unlawful deprivation of life.
The imposition of #deathpenalty in a manner that is contrary to the International Covenant on Civil or Political Rights (e.g. fair trial, prohibition against torture, prohibition against discrimination, etc.) would automatically translate into the execution being deemed arbitrary

🇺🇸 What about a U.S. #food policy? Is there even one to speak of right now? 🤷🏾‍♀️

Stay tuned during the coming weeks for more on a National Food Policy in the #UnitedStates.

... In the meantime, Molly Anderson and Ricardo Salvador give their take 👇🏾

The current U.S. food system is governed by a patchwork of uncoordinated policy frameworks and federal departments: #agriculture, #health, #environment, #energy, social security, #labor, #education.
So policies made at different levels of governance (e.g. municipal, state, tribal, federal) are often contradictory or disconnected from one another, leading to missed opportunities to support innovative local and regional #foodsystem initiatives already happening on the ground.

Ahead of the start of the hearing, RSF along with @StellaMoris1, attempted to deliver the petition at 10 Downing Street calling for the #UK authorities not to extradite #Assange to the #US. Unfortunately, 10 Downing Street refused to accept it.
#FreeAssange
As his extradition hearing resumes, we call yet again for Julian Assange to be immediately released, the charges against him dropped, and for him to not be extradited to the #UnitedStates.

#DontExtraditeAssange
We fully believe the case against him is connected to his contributions to public interest reporting, and his prosecution has extremely worrying implications for press freedom and the protection of journalistic sources internationally.

This appears to be two Ukrainian Su-27 fighter jets flying over Odesa, and some reports suggest they were escorting United States B-52s bombers in the area. 👀👀
Update: This is kinda crazy, this was the first time in history US strategic bomber that are capable of delivering a nuclear payload entered the Ukrainian airspace.

#MedicareForAll
Formula: Gross Income - $29,000 X 4% or 5% = Annual Contribution / 12 = monthly contribution.
Income:
$0 - $29,000 = $ 0 annual contribution
$30,000 = $ 40 - 50 annual contribution
$35,000 = $ 240 - $300 annual, $12 - $25 monthly
...
...
$40,000 = $ 440 - $550 annual, $37 - $46 monthly
$45,000 = $ 640 - $800 annual, $53 - $67 monthly
$50,000 = $ 840 - $1050 annual, $70 - $87.50 month
$60,000 = $1240 -$1550 annual, $103 -$129 month
$75,000 = $1840 -$2300 annual, $153 - $192 month
...
...
Compare to the current cost of: #Premium + #Deductible + #CoPays; #MedicareForAll = 1/2 - 2/3 less of average-patient-cost for #Healthcare in the #UnitedStates.
