afloweroutofstone: shituationist: radical-eirini: rossjm: higher-order: China: *does this*Inept activists in western countries: “Banning plastic straws in our bars and restaurants will save the planet guys :))))))” This chart is extremely misleading because basically the whole world dumps its trash in china and other countries at the top of this chart. This isn’t the same as how much trash each country produces - if that were what the chart was measuring, it would look FAR different. I’m not saying this to defend China, but if you’re looking at who produces the most waste per capita you should look at countries like the United States of America, Switzerland and New Zealand - countries that all produce FAR more waste per capita than China does. Like do you people SERIOUSLY think Sri Lanka, the Philippines and Vietnam have even close to the consumption capacity to produce 5 or 6 TIMES more waste than the US? The reality is that first world countries pay poorer countries to dispose their waste there because disposing of this waste in a cheap way is now mostly illegal there (at least in Europe I’m pretty sure you’re not allowed to burn it anymore) and any ways to do it in an environmentally friendly way are way more expensive. And of course, poorer countries don’t have the capacity (or the resources) to dispose of this waste in an environmentally friendly way (although this is actually changing for China specifically, if you look at the chart its somewhat old), so of course for them to get rid of it, it goes into the sea. First world: *exports trash and pollution-causing industry to the third world, consumes products dependent on these facts* Inept first worlder: “wtf China stop polluting” Imagine seeing a chart that claims Sri Lanka produces 82 times more waste per capita than the dramatically wealthier United States and just rolling with it : afloweroutofstone: shituationist: radical-eirini: rossjm: higher-order: China: *does this*Inept activists in western countries: “Banning plastic straws in our bars and restaurants will save the planet guys :))))))” This chart is extremely misleading because basically the whole world dumps its trash in china and other countries at the top of this chart.

It is difficult to get information on all relevant factors, and even more difficult to account for their expected effects on health. But some factors are deliberately excluded by the WHO analysis on the basis of paternalistic assumptions about the proper role of health systems. An earlier paper laying out the WHO methodological framework asserts, “Problems such as tobacco consumption, diet, and unsafe sexual activity must be included in an assessment of health system performance.” </i></p><p><i>In other words, the WHO approach holds health systems responsible not just for treating lung cancer, but for preventing smoking in the first place; not just for treating heart disease, but for getting people to exercise and lay off the fatty foods. <br/></i></p><p><i> Second, the WHO approach fails to consider people’s willingness to trade off health against other values. Some people are happy to give up a few potential months or even years of life in exchange for the pleasures of smoking, eating, having sex, playing sports, and so on. The WHO approach, rather than taking the public’s preferences as given, deems some preferences better than others (and then praises or blames the health system for them). </i></p><p><i>A superior (though still imperfect) approach would take people’s health-related behavior as given, and then ask which health systems do the best job of dealing with whatever health conditions arise.<br/></i></p></blockquote><p>In other words, its a bunch of meaningless cherry-picked measurements framed in a way to make the private system appear terrible in order to push for more socialized medicine.  </p><p>Despite all of it’s flaws, which are usually thanks to government market intervention, the United States still has the best health care system on the entire goddamn planet per capita.  It’s most likely that the life-saving equipment and procedures that are used in other hellholes using slave healthcare to save lives are thanks to us.  </p><p>You’re welcome.</p><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="250" data-orig-width="450"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/b97a460c917c68f3900de0bc46e50c59/tumblr_inline_owpcxquafE1r1jtxd_540.gif" data-orig-height="250" data-orig-width="450"/></figure></blockquote>

UN UCCELLO DISPETTOSO Il pinguino di Adelia (Pygoscelis adeliae) è la specie più diffusa in Antartide e anche se appare innocuo può avere dei comportamenti che possono apparire sconvolgenti. Spesso i membri di questa specie si ritrovano a gruppi sulle scogliere a picco sul mare per eseguire un tuffo sincronizzato, infatti la possibilità di non essere preda delle foche leopardo, diminuisce all'aumentare del numero dei pinguini. Inoltre capita spesso che alcuni esemplari inducano i compagni a tuffarsi con delle finte, per poi affacciarsi giù dalla scogliera in modo tale da verificare la presenza di foche leopardo, oppure spingendoli da dietro, sacrificando così alcuni compagni. Questo tratto comportamentale è tipico delle comunità egoiste. Ma hanno anche altri aspetti, come documentò nel 1910 il naturalista Gorge Levick. Nei suoi scritti parla di: necrofilia, coercizione sessuale di adulti e piccoli, autoerotismo, dipendenza sessuale, omosessualità.

Ogni città del mondo ha i suoi problemi, spesso legati alla povertà e alla criminalità. Ma a Dubai, negli Emirati Arabi, c'è un grosso problema che deriva proprio dalla ricchezza. Si tratta del problema delle auto di lusso abbandonate nei parcheggi che rimangono a prendere polvere e ad occupare parcheggio inutilmente. Non sono macchine di poco conto, infatti nei depositi si possono trovare Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, Range Rover, Mercedes e tantissime altre auto costosissime. Questo è dovuto a due fattori. Il primo è che gli sceicchi miliardari vanno a comprare una nuova auto e lasciano la vecchia dove capita, il secondo è invece più serio, infatti nonostante la crescita economica della città negli ultimi anni, dovuta principalmente al petrolio, non per tutti le cose sono andate bene e molti stranieri, trasferiti qui e dopo essersi adattati alla vita del luogo grazie alle ricchezze che magari avevano guadagnato, hanno avuto una vera e propria crisi economica, magari dovuta a investimenti che non sono andati come dovevano: una macchina lussuosa, a quel punto, costava troppo, e la cosa migliore da fare era abbandonarla dato che venderla è impossibile.: Miti Da Sfatare A Dubai abbandonano per strada le auto di lusso Fonte: Ilpost.it Ogni città del mondo ha i suoi problemi, spesso legati alla povertà e alla criminalità.

Da pra acreditar? A imagem é de 2016 onde um Boeing 787 da Royal Brunei Airlines fez história quando aterrissou na Arábia Saudita com um tripulação exclusivamente feminina. Uso de três mulheres no comando da aeronave no voo entre o minúsculo Estado asiático localizado na ilha de Bornéu, e Jedá, uma das maiores cidades sauditas, fez parte das celebração anual da independência de Brunei do Reino Unido, em 1984. E a comandante do voo BI 081, a capitã Sharifah Czarena Surainy, é ainda mais pioneira do que se imagina: em 2013, ela se tornou a primeira mulher no posto em uma companhia do Sudeste Asiático. No voo para Jedá, Sharifah teve a companhia das co-pilotos Nadiah Pg Khashiem e Sariana Nordin. Czarena fez seu treinamento no Reino Unido e, em dezembro de 2013, tornou-se o primeiro piloto da Royal Air Brunei a voar de Londres a bordo do 787.
