Che notizia ho appena letto (e che non sapevo assolutamente): i #criceti reggono l'alcol molto meglio di noi, complice il loro stile di vita e la struttura resistente del loro fegato, secondo uno studio dell'Università di #Alaska Anchorage. Che figata! Un 3d ci sta tutto. 1/n 🧵
In realtà, i primi studi sulla predilezione dei criceti per le bevande alcooliche risalgono agli anni '50 del secolo scorso, e quest'ultima ricerca non fa che fornire ulteriori elementi di conferma. 2/n
Gli studiosi hanno confermato che prima dell'inverno, questi piccoli roditori accumulano nelle loro tane semi e frutta. Le provviste fermentano col passare delle settimane e la loro concentrazione in alcool diventa sempre più alta. 3/n

The story of the #BuildBackBetter has yet to be written. Let’s examine the 50 Republican US Senators who are voting against lifting children out of poverty, education,elder care, affordable prescription drugs, child care & family leave? What does this mean for YOUR STATE? Image
#ALABAMA Sen. Richard Shelby is voting against the #ChildTaxCredit “The Center on Budget &Policy Priorities found making the program permanent would benefit 93% of #AL children,lift 162,000 #AL children above/closer to poverty line & benefit 480,000 #AL children under 17. Image
#ALABAMA Sen. Tommy Tuberville has offered you no solutions; he has admitted that he “wouldn’t have a clue” how to address the current pandemic and recently told people that $600 per week in federal unemployment benefits was just “too much.”… Image

The messaging on this is terrible; causing unnecessary outrage.

#AndrewYang is not trying to run #3rdParty, or rejecting #Democrats, or asking anyone else to, he will just endorse/support any candidate who aligns with his (atm, mostly #Democratic) policies.
#Yang has said multiple times that he knows #Independents can't win the presidential and almost never win Congressional races, EXCEPT where there's open, #RCV elections, like #Alaska, and he's not encouraging anyone to register as Independent.

#Florida has finally been seeing dramatic improvements in its #COVID19 numbers.

New daily infections (cases) have been decreasing in September as rapidly as they increased during this #delta surge.

We're where we were in mid-July, with numbers also similar to where we were in early February.

Under 7,700 cases per day over the last 7 days.

The chart below highlighting the past 8 weeks tells the story. After plateauing for 2 weeks towards the end of August, it's been 4 straight weeks of considerable decreases in cases.

We don't want to be at 7,000+ cases per day, but moving in the right

A thread. People are asking why I left #Alaska a place and people I had grown to love. There were several reasons & as people preparing to transition to retirement we needed to make a go, no go decision. What follows is a list of some of the why.
1) State Budget. The fiscal situation in the state is unsustainable & there doesn’t seem to be any will to actually fix the problems until there’s nothing left & then options get ugly quickly. Rank & file citizens have all sorts of perceived quick fixes like an income tax,lottery
more taxes on oil, etc. As someone who actually worked on the problem & proposed some comprehensive solutions in 2015, I can tell you there are no quick fixes. Taxing a declining population alone won’t fix it, no one solution will. I felt like we had moved beyond the

My niece Aroon is up here and found this stranded orca several miles from here. In all the years I've lived here I've never heard or seen anything like this. I have to wonder if the 8.2 #Earthquake was to blame. NOAA is on its way to try to save it. #offgrid #Alaska Image
It looks like it's a juvenile and Aroon says there's no sign of its pod. People are pouring water on it. Unfortunately it's injured itself on the rocks trying to get off the beach. The good news is the tide is coming in. Image
Lovely people helping. Image

A long thread--Well, that was an interesting night. There was a powerful 8.2 magnitude earthquake around 10:15pm 75 miles south of Kodiak in the Gulf of Alaska which triggered a tsunami warning that included Seward, where I'm working on the boat.
I did feel it here. It felt like the wind rocking the boat, not violent at all, but it went on for a really long time. I got an automated safety alert on my phone around 10:25, followed by a call from Devany to evacuate a couple of minutes later.
I grabbed the computer, jumped in the truck, headed uphill out of town about 5 miles, and parked in one of the pull-offs on the Seward Highway by 10:35, which gradually filled up with other cars and motorhomes.
