A little thread, which I may come back to, for all those #technophobes who blame rise in #suicide on #socialmedia.

First: legit, what rise?
Second: The actual experts do not agree with you, and your fear-mongering is likely causing more harm than good.
cf. Thomas, K, and Gunnell, D. (2010). Suicide in England and Wales 1861–2007: a time-trends analysis. International Journal of Epidemiology, Volume 39, Issue 6, December 2010, Pages 1464–1475.
So, first the data, from #UK (above) and elsewhere (below).

Clearly if this epidemic was *caused* by a *single* factor it would permeate all societies with social media.

LEDE: Trump had Secret FBI file about something he said about
#SouthKorea in 1987. 😎
Here's faint record from 1982 that is exempt from disclosure. b7D is because it contains confidential source. Page 87 of 149. One page fbi record from 1982 with my arrows and typing
A 1997 Westchester? clipping that I think is about Trump's mansion that was in the financials that Cohen dropped. Looks like Trump rented it to Jeanine Pirro's campaign. Was the FBI looking at a Trump illegal underreported campaign Jeanine Pirro contribution? @maddow @Lawrence 1997 Clipping about Jeanin Pirro campaign rental.

Yikes. Don’t sleep on how bad is getting worse quickly here: #SouthKorea says troop talks deadlocked as U.S. demands 'unacceptable' funding increase reuters.com/article/us-usa…
“At their last meeting, in December, the United States made ‘sudden, unacceptable’ demand that South Korea pay more than 1.4 trillion won per year, about 1.5 times its current contribution”
This was after, I understand, USFK and ROK had agreed on a draft SMA, which the White House punted back. (Also, Mattis’ resignation letter emphasizing alliances followed shortly after this meeting, IIRC.)

Even though #molka is wide spread in South Korea, some of you may want to believe that there are a bunch of assholes who are none of your concern. However, these creeps are among us. He could be your boyfriend, brother, or husband.
Almost 80% of South Korean men have abused their girlfriend. Not only abusing, but also taking molka.

A week ago, a hair designer, named #JongBumChoi, claimed that he was assaulted by his ex-girlfriend #KooHara(K-pop star). Also Koo came back at him and insisted that she was abused and was severely injured. There were arguments about who is telling the truth #구하라를지지합니다

#TripToSeoul #Korean men are voyeurs. They watch porns called #molka taken by spycam in public bathrooms, streets, women's changing rooms, etc..
A lot of males secretly flim their girlfriend, wife or sister. It is normal for korean men to watch spycams of women online and it's
easy for anyone buy spy cameras in #SouthKorea. #Seoul #Gangnam

Hundreds of molkas are uploaded everyday on the community website, where majority of users are men. Women have requested the shutdown of those websites to the police but the police has made excuses so far that it’s
not feasible because servers of those websites are located outside of the country. It took 17 years to shutdown the notorious molka site(소라넷) #Kpop #Kdrama

There is a community website called ‘워마드(womad)’ #내가_워마드다 which mostly focuses on mirroring its counterpart’s

I will "probably not" ask potential nominees how they'll vote on Roe V Wade, because: "They were all saying 'don't do that...you shouldn't do that.'" But he adds that abortion might end up being a state decision at some point.

Beberapa hari ini saya datang 'mood' mengulas pasal industri hiburan Jepun dan Korea Selatan.

Jangan pula korang ambil kesempatan untuk hentam Melayu. Tujuan saya cuma nak memberi pencerahan tentang konsep 'soft power' sahaja.
Dalam hubungan antarabangsa, industri hiburan atau budaya popular kalau digunakan secara strategik, ia akan membantu negara memprojek kuasanya.

On a trip to Seoul after #TrumpKimSummit, @SecPompeo tells reporters the US wants “major steps” on #NorthKorea disarmament in the next 2-2.5 years. Says engagement will begin “some time in the next week or so” to drive the process forward
.@SecPompeo defended @POTUS cancellation of military exercises with #SouthKorea and said they will remain suspended as long as there are “productive, good-faith negotiations” ongoing #northkorea #TrumpKimSummit
On the omission of CVID from Joint Declaration, @SecPompeo said the use of the word “complete” encompassed both terms (verifiable & irreversible) “in the minds of everyone concerned.” Said he was “confident [the North Koreans] understand that there will be in-depth verification.”

I am so disappointed in our country, but I know I am partly to blame. I was angry and disillusioned about the level of corruption in our government, at all levels, but I did not know how to change it. I became complacent and took too many things for granted.

NOW WE ARE AWAKE
I will never be complacent again. This corruption is completely intolerable. I am ANGRY + I will fight until we permanently change this country for the better.

I know you feel the same way. Our strength is in our numbers. We must stay united, strategic, and relentless.
#SKorea
Step 1: It is URGENT that we get Dems to the polls in record-breaking, shocking numbers.

That is what it is going to take to overcome all the GOP cheating, hacking, propaganda, and election fraud. Go door-to-door. Talk to your neighbors. This is absolutely critical.

🗝(1) “A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.”
For over a year we’ve been bombarded with rhetoric about #Russia #NorthKorea and #Iran yet no one seems to remember Clinton/Gore but we should, it’s important.
(2) #ClintonGore ran in 92’ consciously ignoring foreign policy and there’s no doubt America had war fatigue. Gore’s slogan was “it’s the economy stupid” and when they won despite the #ColdWar having just ended both of them barely even mentioned #Russia
(3) #ClintonGore inherited a political dream of sorts. For the first time #Russia was eager and willing to work with America they were cooperating across the spectrum and agreements with Bush Sr. were in place to reduce nuclear arsenals by 66% Democracy was at its most popular.
