The New Humanitarian | Elon Musk’s Twitter takeover: Three humanitarian risks

Local activists and humanitarians have used the platform to help catalyse revolutions, to share and collect lifesaving information, and to flag needs during emergencies. On the flip side, Twitter has also obstructed humanitarian efforts by providing an unchecked platform for misinformation and hate – often with disastrous consequences.

As a humanitarian communications professional who has directly witnessed the influence of social media networks on emergency responses in West Africa, Greece, Lebanon, and beyond, I am concerned about what Musk’s proposed reforms could mean for the future of aid.

Violência Contra a Mulher

Pensamentos.me/VEM comigo!

Dá visibilidade aos casos de violência contra a mulher, é uma forma de construir uma nova história. Mas, uma história não mais baseada num sistema opressor. Hoje, a mulher não tem que escolher o silêncio como um aliado, mas fazer uso da voz para que a Justiça prevaleça, graças aos seus esforços e coragem.

Egyptians call on British Museum to return famous Rosetta stone | Euronews

The acquisition of the Rosetta Stone was tied up in the imperial battles between Britain and France.

After Napoleon Bonaparte’s military occupation of Egypt, French scientists uncovered the stone in the northern town of Rashid, known by the French as Rosetta.

When British forces defeated the French in Egypt, the stone and over a dozen other antiquities were handed over to the British under the terms of an 1801 surrender deal between the generals of the two sides.

Through knowledge of the latter, academics were able to decipher the hieroglyphic symbols, with French Egyptologist Jean-Francois Champollion eventually cracking the language in 1822.

It has remained in the British Museum ever since.

But Hanna says the stone was taken illegally, “I think all nations have the right to ask back for their heritage.

“In the 19th century, slavery was legal, child labour was legal and women had no rights. Today, we are in the 21st century and we have to correct the mistakes of the past and correct the mistakes of history because we can’t change it” she adds.

Oman – Märchen aus 1001 Nacht (?) — Senioren um die Welt

Man fährt nur drei Stunden von Dubai City oder Abu Dhabi City aus in den Oman, und doch kommt es einem vor, als wäre man in einer anderen Welt. Das als „Weihrauchland“ bekannte Sultanat ist relativ wohlhabend, es verdankte seinen Reichtum den „Tränen der Götter“, dem Weihrauchharz. Seit 1967 exportiert der Oman auch Öl und […]
