#Evacuate #Migrants & #Refugees from #Libya! THREAD
@Refugees should actively & expeditiously work to evacuate sub-Saharan #African migrants from Libya. Libyan gov't's non-mea culpa is inadequate. It hoarded 1000s over several days before they stormed out in desperation.
What happened this past week was no accident; it was intentional, done in full public view, & abetted by external funding & political/moral cover. #EU-funded Libyan security always racialized & hounded such migrants & refugees since Gaddafi days - to reinforce fortress Europe.
Mr. @FilippoGrandi, with all the due respect, expressions of concern are woefully inadeqauate under the circumstance. Your good offices has to mobilize regional & international humanitarian support. Sub-Saharan African countries should be asked to give shelter - temporary or not.

This is hard to write but it is true for many. What I’m about to say is a harsh reality of what people go through.

What I am about to say is also the reason why a lot of people don’t ask for help.

People do not ask for help because of the fears and stigmas that exist.

Here Is Something to think about,

What if you were a #singleparent with a #child

You work full time for $15.00/hr

You take home roughly $960.00 per paycheck (bi-weekly after taxes)

#singleparent #parenting #Blessed #grateful #calgary #calgarylife #alberta #yyc

@EveryAlbertan
Your bills per month:

$1,000 or more for rent
$150 or more for cable/internet
$250 or more for utilities
$150 per month for car insurance

So let’s do the math

You bring home about
$1,920.00 a month

Your bills average about $1,500(give or take)

#Iran no good for not being able to blow up even just 1 #atomicbomb. #CCP should arrest 8 more #Canadians & kill all 10 if #Canada dares to send #MengWanzhou to #US. #China needs a big purge, ppl like #VickyZhao should all be arrested. #XiJinping needs to learn from Chairman Mao
This is another speech by #LiYi, in which he laughed over the fact that only 4K people died (almost equals to 0 according to him) of #COVID19 #CCPVirus in China, while 220K died in #US. As the result, #China will push #America out of existence.
By the way, his original video is here: . If you care to check the comments, you can find he has many supporters. All reflect the mentality of the #CCP.

Been in Toronto for 2 weeks. Every single Canadian I talk to I ask about healthcare. Each & every one of them LOVES it even if they have to wait for elective procedures.
Know why?!
Because it’s:
•NOT TIED TO EMPLOYMENT
•FREE
•EXCELLENT SERVICE
•DOES NOT BANKRUPT THEM
•HUMANE
O, dear American friends. Tell us your healthcare provider love stories. (I’ll explain why you don’t know what you’re taking about)
#CANADIANS
Here’s a question:
When you owe taxes, like back taxes, let’s say… let’s say a lot of money…
When you’re carried into a hospital with a heart scare or something, does the tax collector come with a clipboard and ask for you to pay up before they admit you?

Vit D Lesson - Part 2 Thread
@PattyHajdu #Canada #cdnpoli
So Pat, Vit D is very important in our bodies; Vit D levels matter
So how does this translate to #covid19 u ask?
Well we touched on how it can help prevent respiratory illness from flu's, remember?
@PattyHajdu #Canada #cdnpoli
And since Covid affects the lungs, some doctors have been looking into the effect of Vit D levels.
This is from the Mayo Clinic, maybe u have heard of them, they're smart

I'm simplifying these threads & will now show sliding window views of last 3 months of cumulative data for whole epidemic (except for province-specific summaries at end).

Rate of change graphs are provided for preceding 28 days to give a better sense of most recent dynamics.
Please note that though it's tempting to speculate about recent trends for long-term/personal care & retirement homes, reporting for this sector is VERY delayed & is almost always incomplete for preceding 3-4 weeks. The period of uncertainty is now highlighted in gray in graphs.

#Canadian scientists, science communicators, HCPs who vaccinate and is scientifically knowledgeable about #COVID19 vaccines

Are you frustrated by slow vaccination rates, vaccines being thrown out? Do you want to help now?

There one very big way we can help now.
Many HCWs scheduled to be vaccinated now are nervous about the vaccine and would like to be able to talk to knowledgeable experts and have supportive, non-judgemental discussions.
It is incredibly important that we provide support and information and conversation about the COVID vaccines to people who live, work in & visit long-term care and retirement homes in Canada. And we need to do it NOW.

One last post for night about number of NEW #COVID19 deaths that will occur in #Canada between today Jan 1 if we don't slow spread NOW.

This is back of the envelope math. Most deaths by Jan 1 will occur from cases contracted before today. What we do now will change deaths in Jan
1. In last 7 days, #COVID19 deaths grew by 21%.

2. 746 #Canadians died of C19 in the last 7 days.

3. If deaths grow by 21% next wk, by the last night of Hanukkah, there will be 746 x 1.21= 903 new deaths

cont...
4. If deaths grow 21% Dec 19-25, by Christmas Day there will be 903 x 1.21=1092 new deaths.

5. If deaths grow 21% Dec 26-Jan 1, by New Year's Day there will be 1092 x 1.21=1322 new deaths.

TOTAL NEW #Canadian #COVID19 deaths fr Dec 12-Jan 1:

Starting thread about how many #Canadians will likely die of #COVID19 in next 3 wks

1. last day Hanukkah (Dec 18)
2. Christmas eve (Dec 24)
3. New Year's eve (Dec 31)

This is so those travelling, socializing indoors in next 3 wks remember the dying during celebrations of hope.
As of Tues Dec 8, #COVID19 deaths across #Canada were increasing 17%/wk.

BUT death rates are accelerating 11%/wk in last month, so this wk they'll increase 19%, next wk 21%, wk after 23%.

Let's do the math to translate into how many people will likely die on Dec 18, 24, 31.
Gah! I forgot to add image. Look at the red line on the graph on the right (Canada).

That shows how fast death rate is changing over time.

A flat line is steady increase by the same number of deaths/day. Upward slope is acceleration (speeding up).
