What’s the huge advantage of driving a car? 🤔

Having the freedom of going anywhere and stopping wherever you want on the way 😊

I didn’t buy a @Tesla for city driving. I bought it exclusively for #RoadTripping, because it’s an #EV.

#ClimateCrisis
For 10 years I have not owned any car.

I am getting around the city of @Bordeaux by bicycle as this is the most convenient and quick way to move in a European urban environment 🚲😊

For #RoadTrips outside the town I used #CarSharing (up to a few weeks).

However, I have been bothered by the #ClimateCrisis since 2005 and it’s been more and more difficult to cope with nasty petrol or diesel fill-ups and the CO2 and pollutant emissions associated with them 😖

The Victorian Government is the latest stakeholder to express concern about vaping, saying e-liquids are becoming increasingly more dangerous.
A torrent of #FUD on..
#vape #vaping #eLiquid #nicotine in #Victoria #Australia
ajp.com.au/news/e-liquid-…
This title is deceptive in that it mentions #eLiquid but then goes on to discuss the components (concentrated #nicotine) used to MAKE e-liquid.
In a regulated, legal market there'd be no need for the latter to be in the homes of #Australians who want to #QuitSmoking via #vaping.
"Minister for Health .@JennyMikakos released data from the Victorian Poisons Information Centre that shows concentrations of #nicotine are getting stronger and the number of child poisonings from e-liquids are increasing."
Caps on maximum strength (in a regulated, legal market).

Is vaping bad for you? A cardiothoracic surgeon gives her expert opinion.
A twitter thread on #vaping in #Australia, in a news report featuring @drnikkistamp.
Report "debate rages on about whether [#eCigarette are] actually a safer alternative to regular #cigarettes"
Yes, in much the same way that debate rages as to whether #vaccines cause autism, or whether the Earth is flat.
Sans the carbon monoxide & tar of #smoking, ..
.. it'd be pretty extraordinary if they were anything less than /much/ less harmful.

A fisking of the opinion piece by Michelle Jongenelis (from the doghouse of @DrOliviaDoll1) in Fairfax media. No public link known (it appeared in a variety of regional newspapers around #Australia).
"THE recent death of a US man who contracted a serious lung disease after taking up #vaping comes as no surprise to many #PublicHealth advocates."
No mention of #BlackMarket, unregulated #cannabinoids, despite 6 US regions involved, explicitly mentioning it.
"Contrary to the messages being disseminated by the vaping industry (an industry now largely owned by #BigTobacco), .."
Wrong! Neither the majority of companies, nor vape sales, involve products ownership by the #TobaccoIndustry.

1/Given the recent news around #tether and #bitfinex, we wondered whether the more professional BTC investors would become more cautious - presumably inclined to take the @NewYorkStateAG action as no ordinary #FUD the retail crypto is so used to brushing off. Not really, it seems
2/In the wake of #Fidelity or #TDAmeritrade offering trading and storing of bitcoin, #CME futures is still the biggest market for US institutions to get exposure to #bitcoin price action.Commitment of Traders reports by #CFTC reflect trader positions by end of business on Tuesday
3/Reports come out every Friday to avoid market abuse. @krugermacro suggested using them as a proxy for institutional adoption, which was also referenced in the influential recent report by @tuurdemeester and @MLescrauwaet. We've also been tracking COT positions. Take a look

A propósito del vergonzoso episodio antivacunas de @futurofm de ayer por la mañana, les quiero contar como funciona el principal grupo antivacunas en Chile, y como aprovechan las falencias de los medios para meter sus mensajes peligrosos. Hilo. Largo. Busquen comida.
Parte 1: Entendiendo a los Antivacuna
Antivacunas ha habido desde que Jenner descubrió el principio de funcionamiento: Entrenar al sistema inmunológico humano con una versión muerta o muy aporreada de ciertas enfermedades transmisibles evita el contagio o disminuye los síntomas.
Independiente de que "la vacunación" sea la segunda intervención de salud pública de mayor relevancia luego de "lavarse las manos" (y no es broma), hay personas que por distintos motivos rechazan la vacunación.

I came across this tweet by @Shaughnessy119 a 'Crypto Research Analyst' and I think it's time for a Christmas smackdown.

Tom opens up his list highlighting that there is "Little Use of XRP in Ripple's Products". Further down he says that banks have no interest in XRP anyways because it's ill-suited for several reasons. So why complain if Ripple is trying to design products for its customer base?
Of course, it's quite obvious to me what Ripple is playing at with their x series of products: get people using xCurrent and xVia and then onboard them onto xRapid to leverage XRP for cost savings, completely revamping the way the cross-border payments work in the process.

0/ Another doozy of a thread for you!

The past ~24hrs saw a great many #blockchain projects share development updates and partnership news. Amid this, the #crypto space was ripe with discussion on several topics.

On what, exactly? Well that's for you to find out 😉
1/ 🇺🇸 @AugurProject [ $REP ] - yeah, that #Ethereum-powered decentralized prediction market everyone wrote off post-#mainnet as quickly as @Novogratz revises a #bitcoin price forecast (😘) - well the #USmidterms have seemingly awoken punters from far and wide. Those numbers!
2/ 🔎 @adam3us's leading #bitcoin and #blockchain technology firm @Blockstream announced its new block explorer, blockstream.info.

Now, users can search and view specific data published in real-time to the Bitcoin #blockchain, Bitcoin #testnet and Liquid #sidechain. Neat!
