The port of Eilat in Israel has almost 0 ship arriving or leaving because of attacks by Yemeni forces
On top of massive economical losses of the war in Israel, the actions of the Yemeni forces have completely stopped all shipment in an out of the Israeli red sea port of #Eilat.
Other than #Hamas and #PIJ, #Yemen military and #Hezbollah are the only groups who have pushed israel hardly that it's now begging US and UK to escalate their presence in the region and act on behalf of Israeli government.
This can cause an escalation of the war beyond the borders of Israel into a global war.
"Unexploded American bombs littered the Cambodian countryside, maiming and killing people for decades to come.
Many also say that another consequence of Nixon and Kissinger's bombing campaign was that it helped pave the way for one of the worst genocides of the 20th century. Around 1.7 million people died at the hands of the Pol Pot-led Khmer Rouge between 1975 and 1979 - almost a quarter of the population."

Custard apples or Seethaphal are a tropical fruit from South America. They are grown and eaten a lot in Asia too. The fruit is sweet and creamy when ripe. It tastes very nice when eaten raw or can be made in to ice cream too. We are slicing off the outer skin of the custard apple and collecting the kernels inside it. Do enjoy the asmr video with asmr sounds.

At the #Luoyang Museum, another #SilkRoad product: #Christianity. How did the teachings of Jesus spread as far as #Rome and #China? Like Buddhism and Islam, via the Silk Road. This 8th century Tang dynasty stele contains Nestorian Christian scripture, translated from Syriac into Chinese, with the emblem of Asian Christianity: the cross and lotus. In the cosmopolitan #TangDynasty, Buddhists, Taoists, Muslims, Christians, and Zoroastrians lived side by side. #KaiSilkRoad #Asia #travel

Deleted my #X #Twitter account because of its evil owner, so call me ex-X as I cross it out of my nice life here in #Japan! Thanks to @dangillmor for the nudge. I'm a stickler anyway about living by #academic #ethics: https://japanned.hcommons.org/academic_life
I'm in the #Humanities Commons instance, and we have free profiles like https://hcommons.org/members/stevemccartyinjapan that include a link to the old blue bird of Twitter, and members are increasingly leaving, so our admins at @hello might want to reconsider having that item in the next version of profiles.
What can I do with all this new free time besides taking contemplative hikes in Kyoto? I'm still looking for a wide range of informants and academic colleagues, as I should have big news on #international #collaboration in 2024. I'm looking for #friends in fields such as #online #education, #bilingualism, #language #teaching with #technology, #journalism, #interculturalcommunication, and #Asia.
A little positive reinforcement goes a long way!
To avoid a war, or going #nuclear, I think US might need to give some concessions to China. I don't like that, but I don't see a good alternative.
Day 6 of the #30DayMapChallenge ended up taking me a couple of days due to a lot of bugs, and producing a code file too big to be committed to GitHub without being zipped first...

As usual you can find all my code, data and the interactive version of the map on my challenge website at the link below.

I’m researching Mastodon accounts with huge follower numbers and looking for help.
In the US George Takei has over 400000 followers, in Germany Eugen Rochko has over 300000 and Jan Böhmermann nearly 200000, in the UK Stephen Fry has over 100000.
Know any other big accounts? Any over 500K? Any in #Asia? Who's big in #France, or #Spain, or #Italy, or #Argentina? Who is the most followed woman? Did most of them take their followers from Twitter?

I found some 'akebi' (Akebia quinata) and 'mube' (Stauntonia hexaphylla) fruits alongside a road.
Both are East Asian wild fruit vine, but akebi is deciduous🍁 while mube is evergreen🌿.
Sorry been inactive past couple weeks. We grew too big for our servers and had to sort that out, in the meantime a lot of requests and reports ended up pending.
Hopefully everything is back on track now. If you guys need anything or want to get in touch off mastodon, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
