The videos are to whet conversations on rights of persons with mental illness, persons who live with unique life stressors due to structural oppression. Section 21(1)(a) of #MHCA mandates equality & non-discrimination for all #PWMI What would that look like? Please share
TW: violence, lynching, caste violence, death. I'll start us off. In 2017-2018, three reported incidents of persons with mental illness PWMI being lynched & killed. There's a clear intersection here -with the victims belonging Muslim, Dalit & Tribal communities. Never Forget.
Many persons are involuntarily admitted to mental hospitals - especially women, homeless, economically vulnerable persons (irrespective of their mental health). Institutions are characterized by segregation, no respect for bodily rights, personal space of the users. #Rights #PWMI

Water is life, yet 1 in 3 people globally do not have access to safe drinking water🚰 #WWWeek
@WHO_Europe @WHOAFRO @WHOWPRO @pahowho @WHOEMRO @WHOSEARO Globally, at least 2 billion people use a drinking water source 🚰 contaminated with 💩.
Those left behind without safe water suffer the worst health consequences. #WWWeek
@WHO_Europe @WHOAFRO @WHOWPRO @pahowho @WHOEMRO @WHOSEARO By 2025, half of the world’s population will be living in water-stressed areas.

Cholera recurs again and again where people are left behind without safe water 💧

#DYK the #FBI National Academy has its own Yellow Brick Road? Unlike the path to the Emerald City, our Yellow Brick Road is a 6.1-mile run that received its nickname after @MCB_Quantico placed yellow bricks on the wooded trail to guide runners.
During the run, students must climb over walls, run through creeks, jump through simulated windows, scale rock faces with ropes, crawl under barbed wire, and maneuver across a cargo net. When students finish the run, they receive a yellow brick to memorialize their achievement.
Students at the #FBI's National Academy recently completed a 1-mile run, their last fit challenge before they run the Yellow Brick Road. A student from New York broke the academy's record for the fastest mile, coming in at 5:02.

Like many reporters, I collect passes for events I cover. @JustinTrudeau staff wouldn’t let me keep this from @CoastGuardCAN photo op in Vancouver. They said it would be reused. Today’s other event is party, not PMO. Pass is dated. I also said it’s single-use plastic. #cdnpoli
Another PMO staffer, taking orders, tried to prevent me from taking photos of the PM walking down the gamgway, in case he were to fall. PM ably descended, as you can see. Sukh Dhaliwal, however, needed help. The Surrey Liberal MP didn’t have sea legs today. #cdnpoli #cdnmedia
Also at @JustinTrudeau photo op at @CoastGuardCAN in Vancouver: dir. of photography from Mark Marissen’s Burrard Strategy (r) and Marissen’s wife/BS managing dir., Maryam (l). PMO issued media passes to both. BS recently produced Sukh Dhaliwal vids. #cdnmedia #cdnpoli

In case you wondered, as time permits I add Q drops tha match the deltas (time between tweets) & timestamps on President Trump’s Tweets as a way to re_read drops & to see if they are deliberate on POTUS part, possibly pointing to a specific drop. Sometimes they seem to be! 😊

"The right of vote shall not be denied...on account of sex." Today is the 100th anniversary of Congress approving the #19thAmendment. Follow along as we join @amhistorymuseum to share stories for #19thAt100. #WomenAtTheCenter #WomensHistoryIsAmericanHistory
NYC suffragists adopted tactics from the labor movement—protests, marches, & parades—to bring media attention & sway public opinion. They won women the state vote in 1917. The NYC campaign galvanized the national movement. More: #19thAt100
#InezMilholland (1886–1916) became a suffrage icon. She attended Vassar College—where suffrage activism was banned—& organized an off­-campus Votes for Women Club. After graduation, Milholland lived among radicals & artists in Greenwich Village. #19thAt100

#DYK The post office issues safe driving awards to mail carriers? This is a neighbor of mine growing up in #Maine. She’s a great lady and deserves the recognition! Although they included an odd and abrupt USPS funding disclaimer at the end.…
#DYK The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.

This is why packing tape from #USPS costs as much as my #studentloan payments. 😂
Speaking of #DYK That #maine has an opportunity tax credit that can help you repay your student loans? It won’t help you purchase packing tape but it might help Maine attract younger workers.…

My research mostly focuses on how we can get people to feel a bit happier about sharing their land with wildlife. When we disagree on how to manage wildlife, this is called #HumanWildlifeConflict. If an elephant destroys a crop, farmers want to get rid of that elephant 👨‍🌾🐘🌽
#DYK there are tamed Asian elephants used to herd wild elephants away from villages to limit crop/property damage? You can read more about them here…
There are options for reducing wildlife damage but none are fullproof. Putting up fences can help, but there are consequences of fencing off large parts of land, as this reduces habitat for wildlife. Fences are a touchy subject for lion researchers…

Gooooooooood morning Twitterverse! I'm an environmentalist who sees myself as a bit of a Captain Planet protégé. I am using science to help protect this wonderful world we live in. First things first: does anyone actually remember Captain Planet?!
Captain Planet was a 1990s cartoon aimed at kids but had a very strong environmental message throughout. It brought together the "Planeteers" who were kids that wanted to help make the world a better place. Pretty neat, huh?!
And why do I start my week on Twitter talking about kids' cartoons? Well, to me, science is about making positive change for society. And to do that, we need to get our messages out there & get people interested. Cartoons are a great way of engaging kids in science messages

Your behavior impacts your heart health.
The effects of behavioural risk factors like an unhealthy diet may show up as:

Simple ways to increase you food and vegetable intake:

🥦Always include vegetables in your meals

🍎Eat fresh fruits and raw vegetables as snacks

🥑Eat fresh fruits and vegetables in season

🥗Eat a variety of choices of fruits and vegetables

🙅🏻‍♀️Would you eat 12 🥄teaspoons of sugar in one sitting?

Probably not.

But #DYK that one serving of fruit juice can contain up to 9.5 teaspoons of sugar?

Reducing your sugar intake can help you #BeatNCDs.

Certain things come to mind when we think about crime prevention in Jamaica: ZOSO, JCF, SOE etc. The solution has always been “Nature”. #DYK that residents living in “greener” surroundings report lower levels of fear, fewer incivilities and less aggressive and violent behaviour.
The "Broken Window" theory explains the relationship between crime reduction and green spaces. The theory suggest that a well maintained community fosters a strong sense of stewardship and order which helps to lower crime rates because the entire neighbourhood is “Watching You”.
It also states that criminals use the appearance of a community to determine if its members defend it and judge the probability of being caught whilst committing a criminal act. Less maintained communities are often targets because it’s easier to commit and conceal a crime there.
