It's impossible to recognize PRC and then recognize ROC, or vice versa. *Constitutionally*, both cover Mainland China *and* Taiwan. I.e. recognition of ROC implies dissolution of PRC, and vice versa. ROC IIRC still refuses to change its border to only Taiwan. Vise versa PRC. So.

Important thread on how fake information is spread on social media and how false claim that the photo of sick boy on a hospital floor in Leeds was staged has been shared. Terrifying 👇👇👇

"Not as pronounced" is probably my subjective. East German states still lag far behind. You can judge for yourself - here is the table on Wikipedia:

Inequality exists in Germany - but not as pronounced. Roughly: There are federal, state & local taxes in Germany. State & local taxes are set locally. Part of federal taxes are used to help the poorer states, and is one of the stumbling blocks when fed budget is negotiated.

... You seem to miss the whole irony of "I work at foodbank" and "life satisfaction is increasing" in the same sentence ... 🐒🎭

So when people don't get the treatment they need and die - for as long as there is sufficient delay between missed treatment and death - it's all OK? And ignore personal accounts of relatives who had to watch their family members die waiting months/years for necessary procedures?

It's a must, IMO. If you have per chance have time (LOL), listen to this podcast about NI to see what happens when you don't: DUP & cause of the RHI scandal.

I think there is some misunderstanding here. German is a federation. You "keep connection" by electing somebody to state's Landtag, which actually decides on most state stuff (including budget and taxes). One can even say that federal level is only secondary.

Note that this relates only to federal elections to Bundestag. Most political power (most notably the tax collection powers) in Germany is at the local level, in the 16 Landtags.

Algo isn't trained. Algo is somewhat fixed. But obv some people long figured how to manipulate it, and sell their services to this extent. But Google officially can deny any manipulation on its part.

Raises an interesting point. The answer is the UK, and many in Brussels are acutely aware of the risk in that. This can be seen in evidence from the EU Parliament's Internal Market Committee, submitted as part of its in-house consultation process on the ratification of the deal.

P.P.P.S. I mean, this is your state - and your choice. But from outside you look... real real bad. Denials only add... another dimension of badness.

P.P.S. And not even this? Or as long as you personally are doing fine, then it is all fine?

A lot of this indexes use stats compiled by nations themselves. Most stats provided by UK's ONS are averages, which hide inequality (e.g. GNI p cap). Plus, IMO UK's lack of property taxes skews role of land ownership in inequality. P.S. Not even this?

Not but, if you allow me a single comment on UK GE: British like sociopaths for leaders. British elect sociopaths for leaders. British act surprised that their leaders behave like sociopaths. 🤷‍♂️

I'm not really a big fan. But I like that J-Pop is sort of conservative. They don't "experiment" with formula. You know what to expect. And music (I'm more attracted to music than text) is really really good. (Japanese Jazz and Rock are too very good).

More Japanese music (soundtrack) to finish it off: Cowboy Bebop's 'The Real Folk Blues'
