There is no recovery from #AryanKhan. Nothing is found on his person. Blood/urine reports are absolutely clear. Kiran Gosavi's affront on the Administration of Justice cannot be justified by a central agency like #NCB
Bail is a Rule and Jail is an exception. We can't turn this fundamental rule of Criminal Jurisprudence upside down to vilify #AryanKhan
#MundhraPort aka #AdaniPort massive drugs seizure is buried by the Media by focusing on the false and concocted #CordeliaDrugBustCase

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)

America's (and Biden's) Saigon moment. 😣
To clarify, "Biden's" refers to the lack of course correction.
Previous administrations certainly contributed to the current situation, and my tweet was not ignoring those earlier factors.

Ireland and the climate crisis - one story illuminating why we are where we are. Thread
#ipcc #greenwashing #socent
Ireland’s biggest fossil fuel company is @dccplc .

They are a FTSE100 company. Last year they made £13.4 billion in revenue and £530.2 million in profit. 71% of the profit came from their fossil fuel businesses.
We all know that we need to stop using fossil fuels. But even with the ocean on fire, DCC have not committed to stop selling oil and gas.

Earlier today we were in downtown #yyc handing out water & gatorade and fruit, when we decided to stop & have a break by the Cat Cafe...when we came upon a senior lady rummaging through the city's garbage bins.

#Yyccc #Calgary #Alberta #Canada #SeniorLiving #seniorcare #Seniors
We thought she was looking for bottles to turn in for money but we were wrong. She was looking for both bottles & she was also taking food out of the bins & putting it in her cart.

As soon as we saw that we went over to offer her our help.

#Help #Community #Compassion #BeKind
We went over, asked if we could get her a cold drink & a snack & asked her if she'd like to join us on our break.

She accepted. We went into the coffee shop across from the Cat Cafe (Forgot Name), grabbed some drinks & snacks and sat down in the shade across the street. #Hope

We have a serious emergency.

Late this afternoon we were contacted by a senior named “Helen”. She only had one meal left in her kitchen.

She called us for help and we are helping.

We will be using the last of our available funds to get her some much needed groceries. #YYC #YEG
We will hopefully be giving her enough groceries for an entire month so she doesn’t have to worry about having to choose between medications/food, food/electricity, food/rent.

Too many #Calgarians are being ignored and forgotten. Too many #Calgarians are afraid to ask for #help.
We need help. If anyone can help with a donation towards her food hamper, we will be here for about 2 more hours because we are shopping for four seniors tonight.

You can help by donating by any of the options ⬇️ #Donate #community #donations #DisabilityTwitter #BeKind #Alberta

How do I get @shibainuart and other $SHIB and #Twitter influencers to spread the word among the #SHIBARMY to donate their coins to charities that accept ERC-20 donations? 1/Thread with links... unroll to see all the donation options for various #charities
One I found for the army to donate to is here, @ALLFEDALLIANCE - they will take your #crypto donations. It looks like a great charity too. Maybe they can #WOOFWOOF for $BONE to feed the world.

allfed.info/support-our-wo…
Then there is always one my favorites, for my entire life I've loved @SavetheChildren - I donate to them monthly in #Fiat but they also take crypto donations. #SHIBARMY send them a donation so they could also woof for BONE and help children everywhere.

First, Why, do you want to manipulate people? Don't answer that loudly. Just read, on.
Manipulation is to influence people skillfully to your advantage, in a unfair manner. Almost a con game. All con artists have mastered the art of manipulation.

Starting in my own garden is a Neetle-Leaved Bellflower (Campanula trachelium). This is a native wildflower in England but maybe not to MK, I planted it because I liked it! Very hairy tube-shaped flowers makes this well adapted for bee pollination, and they seem to love it.

I remember #Glasgow slums; poverty has a stench - despair
Didn’t expect to write about it 30yrs on; kids denied 1 free meal a day for a few million; a mere drop in the #Covid spend
#Poverty's not as visible now as then, covered by #food #banks, #charity shopping
PERHAPS you have to be a certain age to have witnessed real poverty when it came in ragged clothes and dirt-encrusted faces with the impetigo scars of deprivation.
Now poverty can be disguised in warm clothes that hide the spindle shanks of children under fed;
malnourished on a carbohydrate diet cobbled up from the pennies left after feeding the heat and light.
My first, but not last encounter, with this demi-monde came in 1970s Glasgow shocking me to the core of my being and leaving me with an anger that has never abated.

Very worthwhile webinar ongoing from @ScotCharityReg on constitutions / governing documents 👍
A good reminder from Martin Tyson @ScotCharityReg about the fact that many #charities will have members.. and that members have powers and duties. #Charity members being something the @UKSupremeCourt considered last year …tishcharityandwealthlaw.wordpress.com/2020/07/29/sup…
The question of the right and appropriate legal #charity structure featuring in @ScotCharityReg webinar. That included the issue of incorporation which saw the #SCIO being discussed. The SCIO has now been used by #charities for over 10 years. …tishcharityandwealthlaw.wordpress.com/2021/04/29/the…

Hit just over $3800 for food banks & supportive housing! Our donor extended the #charity #gamesale until we hit our $4000, as we're so close! PWYW sales are matched for the fund. They're also keeping the lifetime subscription subsidy. Help us close out strong! #ttrpg #indiegames
1) Wanna say how awesome the #ttrpgfamily is to get us this far! Support has been overwhelming.

2) Could use another #TTRPGsolidarity boost to help close out. Only TWO lifetime subs would put us over $4000 raised. We know y'all can make that happen quick with a boost! Pls & TY!
@LeoBenucciDM,@nerdicted,@OldGitsnDragons, @dndworldtweets, @WillSavePodcast, @AbyssalBrews, @BreeGoodbarrel, @MaddNichol121, @TheWigglyPlant, @killface18: Can we tag a few solidarity people in for a last boost on this? We'd love to take up our donor's generosity & hit our goal!

Exhausted!!

Only word to describe how we are feeling after 7 hours in Glasgow City Centre last night. There wasn't a part of the night we weren't walking in blood or broken glass.

We worked alongside @BTP, @policescotland, @Scotambservice and @ScotambSORT to help those injured
in and around George Square but no denying it was a dangerous and difficult night for ourselves and the other frontline services.

We helped 17 people last night and ran out of gloves and gauze by the end of the shift! Only silver lining to last night was the members of the...
public who tried to help those badly injured and those that stayed behind to clean up the mess left in the streets of Glasgow. 😴🤕🩹🩸🩸🩺🚑🚓💪

If there is anyone that could help fill two serious requests. One is for a single father fleeing family domestic violence & the other is for a single senior needing help with medication that she can’t afford.

To fill these two requests and the two from last night we need $980.00
Dm us for more information.

The single father needs $380.00 for rent.

The single senior needs $476.00 for her meds that aren’t covered.

The two requests from last night are for a single female that is taking care of her mom who is 70. She has NO food in their house.

We took her a few bags of food last night at 2:45am and left with a promise to bring a food hamper by Monday.

On 24 March 2020, the Financial Times claimed that as much as half of the #British population may have already been infected by the novel #Coronavirus, according to a new model by #Oxford University’s Evolutionary Ecology of Infectious Disease group.
The conclusion, according to the FT’s science editor Clive Cookson, suggested that the country “had already acquired substantial herd immunity through the unrecognised spread of #COVID-19 over more than two months”. If true, this would vindicate the Govt’s “unofficial
Herd immunity strategy – allowing controlled spread of infection,” he stated
Although numerous #epidemiologists and #scientists had questioned the validity of the #Oxford model – which had not been peer-reviewed – it was promoted to the press by a PR agency with ties to the #Gov

I have an emergency that I would like my Twitter Family's #Help with.

I am worried about my friend Jenn and her co workers that run @HarvestHillsYYC.

They have run themselves ragged and need help.

(1)
There's a reason why Jenn and the team have not posted or shared a lot lately on their social media accounts.

She is probably going to kill me for doing this (RIP @Hell_Berta)......but I need to do something for them. I can't sit back and watch them burn themselves out.
As everyone knows, Jenn was in a car accident in Dec. and she was hurt pretty bad. I am talking grade 3 concussion bad and really really bad whiplash and other injuries.

She is at home recovering and her fellow board members and dedicated volunteers have picked up and helped.
