Corruption is the Cancer that destroys Society through Governments


I do a lot of content consumption on the #Twitter, and only rarely reshare it in the #Fediverse, but this one I am. Seth Abramson, the well-known author, dropped a hell of a thread on Twitter yesterday. I read it this morning. He puts together the longer story of International #Corruption but centered on one of the #USA's biggest mistakes in history, Donald #Trump. November he knew about the pandemic and for "thirty pieces of silver" he sold out the world's people to get dirt on the #... Show more...

Opium-Addicted Parrots Keep Raiding Poppy Farms in India
Farmers in India are fighting tooth and nail to keep a scourge of opium-addicted parrots at bay. The birds have been causing headaches for poppy cultivators in the state of Madhya Pradesh, NDTV reports, pillaging their crops and gorging themselves on the precious narcotic. And their daily raids are starting to have a significant impact on the locals’ livelihood, prompting many people to call on the authorities for assistance in staving off the drug-addled birds.
"One poppy flower gives around 20 to 25 grams of opium. But a large group of parrots feed on these plants around 30 to 40 times a day and some even fly away with poppy pods,” said Nandkishore, a poppy farmer from the Neemuch district of central India. “This affects the produce. These opium-addicted parrots are

Invasion Day


This time last year in Sydney...




In Australia the 26th January is celebrated as Australia Day. This marks the anniversary of the 1788 arrival of the First Fleet of British ships. There is a campaign to change the date because this is a celebration of the arrival of colonisers who then proceeded to wipe out huge quantities of indigenous Australians. Personally I am not pro ‘Change The Date’ because I do not want to celebrate genocide at any point in the year. However, as it currently stands INVASION DAY is an important time to reflect and review both history and the current situations and adversities that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are still subject to.
And what does that look like presently?
Well, in 2008 an apology was made to aboriginal communities for what has commonly been referred to as the... Show more...

Tormentas de polvo, tormentas eléctricas y granizo golpean Australia

Luego de que Australia fuera azotado por graves incendios, ahora el sureste del país está siendo golpeado tormentas de polvo, tormentas eléctricas y granizo.

Granizo de gran tamaño y tormentas eléctricas severas han causado destrozos en edificios y automóviles en Canberra, e incluso dos turistas resultaron heridos luego de recibir un rayo.
