Fun fact about these guys, one of the few birds to be poisonous.
The Carolina parakeet is such a beautiful looking bird. Why did we have to hunt it to extinction!?

I did here about the bird being poisonous, though. Apparently, domestic cats would die after eating them. They might be poisonous due to their diet, since they apparently ate toxic cocklebur seeds.
 
Here's a bit of a spoiler for that Mongolian-American Yellowstone map, but eh. (also the pod is not the classic 1983 nuclear incident, instead it's a more chaotic (and asb) one)

Follow up to Tianjin Memorial: MC&D. Might do 096, the Tianjin Massacre, the exclusion zones, and possibly other people. 2012 may be a year of tragedies, but 096 didn't stop at there.

Curious - did they attempt to restructure first, or just say 'sod it' and liquidate from the start?

If the latter, its actually a Chapter 7 filing, but I suspect they went down swinging (making the initial filing correct).

In that universe, MC&D's support of terrorism meant that even after restructuring no one is willing to bail them out. China in fact threatened to suspend diplomatic relations with any government that opted to restructure its debts.

Avatarverse.png
The Group of Television Series Centered Around the World of Avatar, known to fans as the Avatarverse, is a 6 series media franchise focused around the adventures of a reincarnating figure known as the Avatar who can control or "bend" the four elements of earth, fire, air, and water. Only the Avatar can bend all four elements, while a select few in the world can bend individual elements. The style of the franchise is deeply inspired by anime though it is categorized as western animation due to its production in the United States. The franchise has drawn critical acclaim, won numerous awards, and has been instrumental in building Netflix's rise to prominence.

The first series, Avatar: The Last Airbender, followed the airbending Avatar Aang and his friends Katara, Sokka, Suki, Toph Beifong, and Zuko as they travelled across the world to stop Zuko's father, Fire Lord and Phoenix King Ozai, and sister, Azula, from conquering the world with the power granted to them by Sozin's Comet. Aang is the titular last airbender after he escaped the Air Nomad Genocide perpetrated by Fire Lord Sozin at the start of the Hundred Year's War, which was done using the power of Sozin's Comet. The series gained rave reviews for its tackling of major issues like genocide and war within a show ostensibly made for children. The series was split into three seasons called books, titled after an element that Aang needed to master in order to defeat Ozai.

The second series, Avatar: The Legend of Korra, followed the next Avatar, waterbender Korra, along with her friends Asami Sato, Bolin, Mako, and Iroh II as they dealt with the repercussions of Aang's life in a rapidly industrializing and modernizing society. The first season saw Korra master airbending after having previously mastered the other three elements, while in the process dealing with the terrorist Amon and his followers the Equalists. The second season saw Korra master metalbending under the tutelage of Toph Beifong and her daughters, while protecting her home of Republic City from the machinations of the industrialist Varrick as well as remnant Equalists. The third season saw Korra fight her uncle Unalaq who sought to destabilize the world by unleashing the dark spirit Vaatu, and explored the origin of the First Avatar Wan. The show gained more acclaim for taking on more adult themes than the previous show, particularly LGBTQ+ themes, PTSD, and the problems of industrialization and capitalism.

The third series, Avatar: The Legend of Kyoshi, was the first series to premier on Netflix following Nickelodeon's abandonment of the franchise due to the progressive adult themes of the previous series. It followed the fan favorite earthbending Avatar Kyoshi and served as a prequel to The Last Airbender, identifying the processes that lead to the setting of that show. The first season saw Kyoshi deal with an imposter Avatar following the untimely death of her predecessor, Avatar Kuruk. The second season saw Kyoshi become more comfortable with her role as Avatar, and saw her defeat the rogue spirit General Old Iron, previously imprisoned by Avatar Yangchen, Kyoshi's spiritual guide. The third season dealt with the rise of the warlord Chin the Conqueror, and featured an extended version of their final showdown as seen previously in The Last Airbender. Strong acclaim was once again given to the series, mainly concerning Kyoshi's relationship with firebender Rangi and the rehabilitation of Yun from villain to close companion, as well as further explorations of the mysterious Spirit World.

The fourth series, Avatar: The Legend of Roan, served as a sequel to The Legend of Korra by following the next Avatar, sandbender Roan, who spent the entire series fighting against one main villain, the dictator Kuvira. The first season fleshed out the region of the Si Wong Desert, only briefly seen in The Last Airbender, and showed Kuvira's rise to power from a lower ranking military officer to leader of a coup against the Earth Queen. The second season began with Kuvira's proclamation of the Earth Empire, helmed by her puppet Prince Wu, and, with parallels to Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy, explored her efforts to force her rule over the majority of the world. The third season ended with the reestablishment of the prior balance and the emergence of democratic traditions across the world as well as Roan's final acceptance of his role as the Avatar. Again, praise was heaped upon the series, especially with the circumstances of the resurgence of populism and fascism across our own world.

The fifth series, Avatar: The Legend of Soren, took a step back from the setting of the prior series and delved into the deeper past of the world of Avatar by following the actions of Avatar Soren, several incarnations before Kyoshi. In contrast to the semi-industrial look of The Last Airbender, the steampunk and dieselpunk look of The Legend of Korra, the medieval look of The Legend of Kyoshi, and the modern look of The Legend of Roan, this series took on a completely classical flavor inspired by Warring States China, and depicted the consolidation and creation of the Fire Nation under the First Fire Lord Kanto. Soren served as an inversion to Aang, primarily through his penchant to form storms through both his native airbending and recently developed lightning bending, as well as his need to emerge from the shadows of his illustrious predecessors Tihano and Salai while dealing with the firebending serial killer Toz and the rogue extremist airbender Vakoh. The series explored in depth the ancient civilizations of the world, from the Sun Warriors, Moon Chiefs, and Crystal Monarchs, and though criticism emerged for the setting being too close in time to the later series, subsequent comic books have fleshed out what happened in succeeding generations. The series garnered less acclaim than prior ones, particularly due to the similar ideologies of Vakoh and Kuvira and the overall melancholic nature of Soren, and though Netflix seriously contemplated ending the franchise, the creators successfully lobbied for one final series to conclude the franchise on a better note.

The sixth and final series, Avatar: The Legend of Zira, followed the story of the avatar after Roan, and brought the world deep into the cyberpunk genre while tackling pressing questions on how bending would operate in a world permeated with technology. Zira's unique form of firebending, lightbending, proved crucial throughout the series as she was able to develop acclaimed illusions to fight against, in the first season, the anarchist airbender Zaheer, an inversion of Vakoh, and his allies of the Red Lotus, which finally quashed the speculation for a live action adaptation of the series. In the second season Zira faced off against other Red Lotus members reeling from the defeat of Zaheer as well as the new enemy the mechanist Xon, the second nonbender villain of the franchise after Varrick. The third season saw Zira explore the Foggy Swamp, the last barely showcased place in the world, in order to gain an edge against Xon, and featured the most highly praised fight sequence of the entire franchise when Zira formed illusions of the other prior Avatars to help her in the fight, thus bringing back many fan favorites in one scene. The final episode was one of the most watched episodes of television history, and virtually all agreed afterwards that it brought the franchise to a satisfying conclusion.

Speculation has raged about more possible series, though the creators have said that there will certainly be no more to follow after Zira's incarnation. That then leaves the various incarnations that did not receive ample screentime as well as the ones that existed between Wan and Salai. As of the current moment, no more television series have been planned or confirmed by Netflix, who have since regretted their decision to end the franchise with The Legend of Zira. The impact that Avatar has had on the world is similar in scope to the impact the Marvel Cinematic Universe has had, and it is well known across the world as one of the greatest animated shows of all time.

The mods would have intervened by now if it was. Also, the original creator of the Current Politics thread is banned, so whilst we should all have common sense, any errors in placement will be notified by the mods now.

Mark Ereira-Guyer is a British Green Party politician, a member of Suffolk County Council and a former Member of Parliament. He is notable for being the first member of the Green Party of England and Wales to represent that party in the House of Commons, though he was never elected to the chamber under this label, the first person to do so being the party's then-leader Caroline Lucas in 2010.

Ereira-Guyer was educated at the King's School, Ely, and graduated from the University of Kent with a BA in Government and Politics. He and his family have lived in Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk since 1993, and he runs his own charity-consultancy business there. He was selected by the Labour Party to fight the Bury St Edmunds constituency in the 1997 election, and off the back of Labour's landslide victory that year, helped by the decision of incumbent Conservative MP Richard Spring to fight the new West Suffolk seat, Ereira-Guyer narrowly won Bury St Edmunds with a majority of 106 votes, the smallest Labour margin of that election. He was the first non-Conservative to represent the seat since it became a single-member constituency in 1885, and the first Labour MP ever elected for Bury St Edmunds.

During Blair's first term, Ereira-Guyer established himself as part of the Labour left, voting against government whips on issues such as child benefit reform while supporting the introduction of the minimum wage, a ban on foxhunting and reforms to data protection and the House of Lords (privately remarking that he would support the latter chamber's abolition). Due to the tiny size of his majority, his seat was a major Tory target in the 2001 election, but against the predictions of most polls he was re-elected with an increased majority of 1,103.

As the UK built up to sending troops into Iraq in 2003, Ereira-Guyer was a vocal opponent of both British involvement with the Iraq War and the war itself, attending protests against the war and threatening to resign the whip if Blair's government went ahead with it. However, he was unsuccessful at convincing many other Labour MPs who opposed the war to follow suit, though he remained committed to this action; sure enough, on the 20th March 2003, the day after British troops were deployed to Iraq, Ereira-Guyer crossed the floor during a session of Parliament, giving a speech in which he explained he had resigned his membership of the Labour Party and aggressively condemning Blair's government for its actions.

In September of 2003, Ereira-Guyer made headlines again as he confirmed he had joined the Green Party of England & Wales, and would be sitting for that party thereafter. Despite this, his press statement was poorly received, particularly in his referring to his status as the first Green MP as 'historic'; many Labour voters were disillusioned with him, meaning the left-wing vote in Bury St Edmunds was expected to be badly split come the next election.

Even so, Ereira-Guyer continued to push for left-wing policies in Parliament, advocating for a ban on foxhunting, an increase in the minimum wage and notably needling Blair for his lack of commitment to the 'green revolution' environmental policies the PM had spoken of in 2001. He ran in Bury St Edmunds again in 2005, this time under the Green label, and came fourth, only 26 votes behind the third-placed Liberal Democrat candidate; however, the Tories gained the seat from Labour with a majority of over 10,000, one of the biggest swings of the 2005 election.

Since leaving Parliament, Ereira-Guyer has continued his charity work and was elected to Suffolk County Council in 2009, serving as councillor for the Tower ward since then. He stood for Bury St Edmunds again in 2010, again coming fourth (though he won less than 4,000 votes this time), but has not run for the House of Commons since.

(A fairly small change, but I thought it'd be interesting, so...)
 
2020 Alaskan General Election
2020 Alaska Election Wiki.png

In the 2020 Alaskan General Election, the Union of Democrats and Liberals (SDL), a broad centrist, opposition party, defeated the incumbent Constitutional Union (KS) to achieve a majority for the first time since the restoration of democracy in the country in 1992.

In the years preceding the election, the incumbent government of Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev was met with several challenges including continually decreasing oil production and several corruption scandals culminating in Medvedev announcing his resignation in late 2019. Though less than a week later, Medvedev would unannounce his resignation and say he would stand for the upcoming 2020 elections.

In the elections, the SDL leveraged the dissatisfaction with Medvedev's government to achieve a large gain in seats relying on their tradition bases of support in Native Alaskans, American settlers, and urban voters. The SDL gained 19 seats in the election, but came 3 seats short of a 2/3's majority to allow them to unilaterally alter the country's constitution. This complicates the party's support of full Alaskan independence and renouncing their claims on mainland Russia. However, the party plans to move forward on one or more referenda on those questions. Though, the party has shied away on their support of a referendum on keeping the country's controversial monarchy.

The SDL, which had two leaders before the election, chose Anna Murkowski, who many style as the leader of the center-right faction of the party, as Prime Minister. Leaving Boris Edgmon, who is more popular among the further left wing factions of the party and among Native Alaskans, as Deputy Prime Minister. Murkowski is the first woman to be Prime Minister of Alaska and Edgmon is the first Native Alaskan to be Deputy Prime Minister.

Following the formation of the new government, the SDL will likely have several challenges ahead of them. The party has never been in the majority before and while the party prides itself on its "Broad but United" ideological message, governing with members ranging from conservative liberals to those just outside of being socialists is an extremely tough challenge in itself. Regardless, however, Alaska will likely have a radically different government from the over two decades of rule from the KS that came before.

@RoxyLikeAPuma: Great work, however, wouldn't Murkowski's name be Murkowska if you have her in a Slavic-dominated Alaska? Her name is Polish, yes, but even in Polish, it has a feminine form, Murkowska, and she would naturally use that form I guess?
