Helga Weyhe ran her bookstore in central Germany until she died at 98 -- the third generation of her family to run it and keeping a 180-year-old fixture alive https://t.co/7DaTiz4SXS

Oh! god.... CNA is the toughest news channel to get on; had more success with BBC, Bloomberg & CNBC. Now I know why. None of my spokespersons sell home-based curry buns on IG. 🤦 https://t.co/mRXhMyFpWJ

My girlfriend asked me "Where's the TV remote" I said "Manchester United" She replied "What?" I said "on top of the table"

"China has always been big. We don't want conflict in the South China Sea. Australia must examine the reasons why China has taken the actions against them." - Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, former PM of Malaysia at #ReutersNext. SE Asia is a region to be watched for #diplomacy.

Interestingly, he compares POFMA's content "health warning" to what Twitter has been doing; is doing with President Donald Trump, though of course, if the content is not pulled down, the responsible company will be required to go through legal proceedings as per Singapore law.

Social media firms are hampered by their commercial interests when tackling fake news, Singapore’s law minister K. Shanmugam said at the #ReutersNext conference https://t.co/e7PeQzIgy2 https://t.co/edzGnBKyZc

In this abridged interview he points to the monopoly power held by social media companies, the anti-trust issues & fake news, calling them global concerns while stating that the matter has to be arbitrated through some sort of a judicial process https://t.co/C6YJRnperd

SG Home Minister Shanmugam vehemently defended POFMA fake news law at #ReutersNext. Alluding to “information warfare” he said: “More angry people = more 👀& more ad rev for social media. Industrialisation of falsehood undermines sovereignty of a country.” https://t.co/rnW6A1l5UN

Banana bread is so last lockdown 🍌

Instead, keep your strength up with an invigorating home remedy like Sir Walter Raleigh’s celebrated ‘Great Cordial’, created during his long imprisonment at the @TowerOfLondon from 1603-16.

If only you could say oy vey in Portuguese. Brazil's Sinovac vaccine has only 50% efficacy for "very" mild disease but 78% if mild and 100% if moderate or severe. @Sofialmdo and I try to make sense of these dizzying data.

Tesla enters India; sets up R&D hub in Bangalore. Looking at 5 other states to launch ops. (My party pooper take - India does need EVs to combat pollution but what it needs more, is better infrastructure.) https://t.co/EulgQjotXz

VFCorp, the parent company of brands like Timberland & North Face, is shifting its sourcing office to SG & its brand ops to Shanghai - a significant move which indicates a shift in supply chain to SEA, while ensuring access to CN market from Shanghai. https://t.co/SFeIcgvpAB

Here's a lovely video of the legend from March 2020. #RIPMelvis https://t.co/SNcg4Q2AFd

Lots of online chatter about Melvis the Elvis passing away from kidney failure on 29 Dec. The loss feels so personal. Melvis was Hong Kong's beloved King. He sang at my best friend's wedding. He made so many of my nights out at LKF so memorable. 

Elvis has left the building. https://t.co/khO3qOmlWD

Hello fellow Brits 👋 so you’re gonna join us in the All Passports queue now huh! Do you have any idea what it means to an already long queue with some of the world’s most populous nations: Indians, Chinese, Indonesians, et al? Didn’t expect #Brexit to affect us too tsk. Not cool https://t.co/FwrP3nRUKJ

At more than $135b a year globally (@StatistaCharts⁩), gaming industry is bigger than Hollywood. ⁦Just like social media & programmatic, gaming is now a specialist offering which will distinguish leaders from laggards in the marcomms industry. https://t.co/TDgOOKvuvt

Quoted @LOLrakshak

Chinese businessman Jack Ma criticized the country's regime and went missing. That would never happen in a democracy like India. No businessmen would criticize the government.

Ha haaaaa..... spot on https://t.co/Vn2b6tCaMY

Very worrying stats coming out of the UK: - 1 in 30 in LDN infected with the new strain of virus - 800 hospital admissions per day - Communal prayers still taking place - Young adults now being infected & becoming critically ill Via Dr John Campbell https://t.co/yJHOBiaJwc

Quoted @CNN

US employers cut 140,000 jobs in December, according to the latest jobs report. Women accounted for all the losses, losing 156,000 jobs, while men gained 16,000. https://t.co/TOTnq6YraX

As schools & daycares closed, many women were forced to make trade-offs between work & parenting. Losing a job in the US also means losing medical insurance, creating a double whammy. This is why it is imp to look at the sectors impacted & help those who are most in need. https://t.co/MF3YhpqAVU
