Today #Amsterdam starts a transition experiment of 6 weeks that reclaims a car dominated street as public space.

There are already some important lessons about the importance of language. 1/馃У Image
The Weesperstraat has been seen as important link for car traffic to get in and out central Amsterdam for four decades.

Businesses fear for their accessibility & refer to the street as 'an artery'. Invoking the classic metaphor of cities as bodies, car traffic as blood . 2/馃У Image
This blinds us to why and how cities have always functioned as places for human interaction.

Instead of continuous pumping, a good city street constantly entices you to slow down, stop and linger to enjoy the public life around you.

En unas horas, termina una serie que nos abrig贸 el coraz贸n cuando no lo esper谩bamos, y cuando m谩s lo necesit谩bamos.
En este mundo de historias en que personajes rotos se convierten en peores personas, #TedLasso eligi贸 creer en intentar ser mejor.

驴Estuvo a la altura el final?
En lo personal, creo que no.
Creo que #TedLasso mantuvo su encanto, pero perdi贸 la elegancia en su escritura. En el trato y desarrollo de sus personajes.
Entiendo que muchos creen que es porque Ted mismo es "ninguneado", pero discrepo.
El Lassismo es una filosof铆a que se arraiga.
Y por eso los personajes que mejor funcionan son aquellos a los que esa forma de ver el mundo los cambi贸. Kent, Crimm, y el maravilloso desarrollo de Jamie Tartt.
Pero no saben que hacer con demasiados otros personajes.
Nate, por ej, se siente un estropicio.

Y luego est谩 Keeley.

#thread After two and a half years in #ISIS captivity, Imad, his little brother Idan, and their mother Ghazala are released into a refugee camp in #Kurdistan.

A film on #YazidiGenocide:
12, 13 & 14 May at @AmsterdamFilm
Healing from the #trauma is hard for all of them, but it seems Imad is having a particularly tough time. Not yet five, he has already spent over half his #life enduring terror, abuse, and 鈥渢raining鈥 meant to make him heartless.
Speaking only #Arabic, he cannot communicate with his family, and the only means of expression at his disposal is violence. He hits and spits, and his only game is pretending to be an #ISIS fighter who shoots, blows things up, and kills.

As Richard Poe says, 'George Washington referred to the original 13 states as an empire... New YORK is called the empire state'鈥
George Washington in a 1785 letter to James Duane, NYC Mayor, called New York "the Seat of the Empire". Washington is said to have used the phrase"Pathway to Empire"when referring to the state in conversation w/ George Clinton, the NY Governor in the 1790s鈥
James Duane was born in 1733, in NYC, in the Province of New York, to Anthony Duane and his second wife, Althea Ketaltas. Anthony Duane was a Protestant Irishman from County Galway who first came to New York as an officer of the Royal Navy in 1698..

脷ltimo hilo del ciclo tem谩tico #DibujArtes en el que hablamos del #dibujo para el #TwitterCultural.

El dibujo es la base de la historia del arte. Todo comienza con un dibujo: #pintura, #escultura, #arquitectura...

Veamos varios ejemplos, como estas manos de #Durero.

Sigue猬囷笍 Alberto Durero. Manos rezan...
Estas "manos orando" fueron dibujadas con tinta negra y blaco de plomo, sobre papel azul. Las pod茅is ver en el Museo "Graphische Sammlung Albertina", #Viena (#Austria).

Y es que las manos son como la cara: el espejo del alma. Retratar las manos es retratar la persona.

Sigue猬囷笍 Image
Aqu铆 encontramos un magn铆fico o ejemplo de t茅cnica magistral del dibujo a tinta potenciado con blanco, a dos colores, que con el papel de color medio, completa a la perfecci贸n la imagen. 驴Qu茅 secreto esconden? 驴De qui茅n son? Es un secreto perdido en el tiempo.

You've found the start of another daily thread covering the war in #Ukraine.

It's the 251st thread since #Russia's illegal invasion.
The fight for sovereignty and freedom continues.

All the news & analysis in one place.
ICYMI, Monday's stories are here:
I'll start with a couple of curious updates from stories which broke yesterday...

First the case of one of #Russia's richest men who gave up his citizenship saying he couldn't be a part of a fascist country.

But Oleg Tinkov, who now lives in London, has since deleted this post
Next I am concerned about what's happening to the ships which left #Ukraine's ports yesterday despite #Russia suspending its agreement in grain export.

A flotilla of grain-laden vessels seem to have all turned off transponders, either continuing incognito or anchored off 馃嚭馃嚘coast

Buses are the superstars of the energy transition.

They make up 0.2% of vehicles in Europe, but deliver 10% of passenger kilometres. They even have a higher share of zero-emission vehicles than cars.

Our new paper looks out what's driving the change
Buses don't have CO2 standards yet, so demand-side measures are largely driving this trend. Sales shares vary wildly across Member States. In some, electric buses make up close to half of their sales (FI馃嚝馃嚠 NL馃嚦馃嚤 DK馃嚛馃嚢). In others, nearly none are sold (GR馃嚞馃嚪, IE馃嚠馃嚜, PT馃嚨馃嚬).

Cities are showing the most impressive commitment. Over half of Europes' capital cities plan for a fully zero-emission bus fleet by 2040. #Amsterdam and #Copenhagen are leading by example with a 2025 phase-out date.

Una de las cosas que ten铆a pendientes antes de mudarme de Pa铆ses Bajos era visitar Micropia, uno de los pocos museos del mundo dedicados exclusivamente a la microbiolog铆a. Va hilo sobre la visita
Lo primero que hay que decir es que la visita est谩 totalmente recomendada. Es un museo anejo al zool贸gico de Amsterdam, se ve en 60-90 minutos y la musealizaci贸n es sencillamente espectacular. Aunque algo caro (17.50 euros adultos) merece totalmente la pena.
驴Qu茅 podemos encontrar en Micropia? Pues el museo se divide claramente en 2 谩mbitos. La planta de arriba est谩 dedicada enteramente a biodiversidad y ecolog铆a. La planta de abajo est谩 m谩s relacionada con las aplicaciones, beneficios, plagas o enfermedades de los microorganismos.

On July 17, 2014, Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200ER on flight #MH17 from #Amsterdam to #KualaLumpur was shot down over #Ukraine. There is a competent technical analysis of the events surrounding the crash that strip away the fakes around the technical part of the crash.
The analysis was conducted by Mark Solonin on his YouTube channel, disproving almost all the main fabrications about the technical part of the crime. His three videos take up over four hours of airtime, but it's worth spending that time if you want to know the truth.
On the delivery of the Buk surface-to-air missile (SAM) system to the launch site, there was also a remarkable investigation by both the Joint Investigation Team (JIT ) and several teams of investigative journalists.

鈿狅笍 #Nachtzug, wir haben ein Problem!

Immer h盲ufiger h枚re ich aus der Bubble, dass Nachtz眉ge ausgebucht sind. Und das oft mehrere Wochen im Voraus. Wie dramatisch ist die Lage wirklich? Und ist es auf allen Strecken gleich?

Ich hab mir das mal angeschaut. Ein Datenanalyse-馃У
馃 Zur Methodik. F眉r einen Zeitraum von 30 Tagen (ab heute) habe ich 13 Strecken des @unsereOEBB Nightjet auf freie Liege- und Schlafwagenpl盲tze untersucht. Dabei habe ich mich auf *t盲gliche* Z眉ge und *eine Richtung* pro Strecke beschr盲nkt. Insgesamt sind das 390 Zugverbindungen.
馃搳 Und hier seht ihr das Hauptergebnis, aufgeschl眉sselt nach Wagenkategorie.

Wichtig: Der graue Balken zeigt an, wann es *眉berhaupt* noch freie Schlafpl盲tze gibt, egal in welcher Kategorie. Manchmal gibt es nur noch #Liegewagen, manchmal nur noch #Schlafwagen, machmal beides.

馃У On #Pride in the 1980s and 1990s

(As seen on Wikipedia)鈥
In the 1980s there was a major cultural shift in the #Stonewall Riot commemorations.

The previous more loosely organized, grassroots marches and parades were taken over by more organized and less radical elements of the gay community.
The marches began dropping "Liberation" and "Freedom" from their names under pressure from more conservative members of the community, replacing them with the philosophy of "Gay Pride".

The Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200ER #MH17 flying from #Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur on 17 July 2014 was shot down by a Buk surface-to-air missile system over the eastern #Ukraine
The JIT and several groups of journalists have conducted a remarkable investigation. How, from where and by whom the Buk was delivered to the launch site and even the names of people involved in the launch are known. We won't go into these details. Anyone can find the materials
However, so far there has been no clear answer as to who the mastermind of the crime was and what his motives were. It's clear that it was #Putin, although the international institutions involved in the investigation are shamefully silent on the matter. But what are the motives?
