Robert Putnam almost binned his research: it found Americans living in diverse neighbourhoods did not become more tolerant, but voted less, volunteered less, distrusted their neighbours and suspected their leaders. On how to deprogram economic xenophobia:
Peter Woo wants to take his $19 bln Wheelock empire private using cash and shares in subsidiaries. The 52% premium is fair, and a pleasant surprise for investors, writes @petesweeneypro
Like we saw last year during the Trade War, the Chinese internet latched onto a state-media fueled distortion.

I'm not a Pete fan, but this is wildly disingenuous.
Buttigieg secured millions in grants, then the feds pulled funding. The health department is controlled by the county, not the mayor.
This story never explains what his actual failure was. https://twitter.com/scottbix/status/1232313107550285825
The hand -wringing over reciprocity seems to forget that one of the key people driving this decision would be Matt pottinger, a former Wall Street journal reporter in china. I trust he has a strong grasp of all the nuances of the issues https://twitter.com/ewong/status/1232108139912318977
Roti = The "Asian Flat Croissant". Just in case you've somehow managed to grow up in a city with more French bakeries than Indian restaurants. https://twitter.com/hellenus/status/1231610410568040448

This comes after a report last month that Facebook currently only has 26 fact checkers (via its fact checking partnerships) for the entire United States. https://thehill.com/policy/technology/478896-critics-fear-facebook-fact-checkers-losing-misinformation-fight https://twitter.com/cameronwilson/status/1229957041696858112?s=19
Americans are rightfully ashamed of how they treat the elderly, and so it's considered to be in bad taste to talk about the effects of age. But ask someone in their eighties, when you visit them in the home you put them in, if they think an octogenerian president is a good idea
