#FunFact: I've been an expert witness in 2 civil cases. The second time, I was originally supposed to testify the 1st day fo the trial but kept being rescheduled; I finally testified on the 5th day...but I had to sit in the courtroom for ~8 hours each day...at $150/hour.
The case involved both sides being clueless in different ways. A web developer working as a "volunteer deputy" at the Macomb County Sheriff's Dept. developed & maintained an elaborate website for them for free for 3 yrs...then demanded to be paid for his work, including back pay.
The plaintiff (the web developer) claimed that he was owed $300,000. He & his expert witnesses went on & on about how incredibly impressive/sophisticated the code was; all the nifty database tools he had implemented; etc etc.

Again: Giving him side-eye or the evil eye or whatever isn’t gonna change the fact that he’s gonna have tremendous power over the Dem Senate caucus even if they flip both GA seats.

That may suck, but that’s where we are.
In 2018, a progressive tried primarying Manchin. She got 30%.

In 2020, the same progressive was the nominee against Capito. She got 27%.
#FunFact: Remember how the “Bernie woulda won” folks insisted that Bernie would have won West Virginia in 2016 because he won the primary there?

Hillary received 26.4%. This year, the Bernie-style progressive received...27%.

Pouchkine, ou le big daddy de la littérature russe :

UN THREAD Image
Alexandre Pouchkine est né en 1799 à Moscou, il a des parents assez space qui déménagent H24 d’une rue à l’autre et sont incapables de se gérer financièrement, genre quand ils reçoivent à dîner ils doivent emprunter des verres à des potes et des trucs comme ça
L’arrière-grand-père maternel de Pouchkine, Ibrahim Petrovitch Hannibal, était un petit enfant abyssin (c’est à peu près l’Ethiopie aujourd’hui), qui avait d’abord été kidnappé par des Turcs à sept ans puis adopté à huit par le tsar Pierre le Grand #improbable ImageImageImageImage

Urban planning & naming in Benin city is unique & reflects the traditional sociopolitical system & philosophy of life of the Benins. By studying them alone you will learn more Edo history than from many books.
#Thread
Benin City is divided into several Quarters & broadly into 2 parts: to the north Orenokhua and to the south Ogbe. Orenokhua once housed several quarters of the ordinary citizens, craftsmen, various specialist groups, and many chiefs.
The palace quarter called Ogbe was once separated from Orenokhua by a broad road called Oroghotodin. The wide road stretches from Oba market road straight to Sokpoba road. This was before a ring road (carved out mostly from the Ogbe side of the divide) was built there.

#SanMarino #footabll #FunFact

The football fans of the small state of San Marino experienced an unusual feeling of happiness. They had to wait 40 games before they could celebrate another point in their national team.
On Tuesday evening the time had come: the selection made it 0-0 in the Nations League in Liechtenstein. It was the first point win since 2014. The so far last away game without a defeat was even 20 years ago, as the football association of the small state in Italy announced.
The national team from the country with around 33,800 inhabitants in the Italian region of Emilia-Romagna played their first official game in 1990. By the way, Liechtenstein is their favorite opponent:

After 493 days Belgium will have very likely a goverment. After a 21 hours lasting talk the parties had agreement. Now both sides have to decided the postions of the goverment.
The so-called Vivaldi coalition consists of Liberals, Greens and Social Democrats as well as Flemish Christian Democrats. The right-wing parties NVA and Vlaams Belang, which are particularly strong in Flanders, are left out. The last elected goverment resigned 9th Decemeber 2018
#FunFact its not the world record... the world record is held btw by... Belgium too. with 540 days with only a buissnes goverment and 289 days without a goverment.

#FunFact: If no one receives at least 270 Electoral Votes, the race is thrown to the newly seated U.S. House...except each state delegation only gets 1 vote. Currently, GOP holds 26, Dems 22, 2 tied.

That’s why I picked some of these races to support: secure.actblue.com/donate/final_f…
Another #FunFact: One Trump scheme is to try & get state legislatures to ignore the will of the voters in their state & appoint Trump electors regardless of the results. Help flip up to 10 state legislative bodies blue at once by donating to these races: secure.actblue.com/donate/final_s…
(Note: Of the 10 states listed, legislators only assume office before the Electoral College votes in 2 of them: PA & SC. Even so, this underscores the importance of controlling state legislatures on a host of issues most people rarely think about.)

#Funfact: Da man nie vollständig ausatmet sondern im Mundrachenraum, der Lufrröhre etc immer Luft am Ende der Ausatmung verbleibt, atmet man immer, seit dem ersten Atemzug ,,seine eigene, verbrauchte Luft“ wieder ein...ewww
Diese Totraumventilation passiert also ständig. Wenn ihr nun eine Maske tragt, die optimalerweise dicht anliegt und nicht wie so ein Futtersack vor dem Gesicht hängt, erweitert ihr diesen Totraum lediglich um einen Bruchteil dessen, was ohnehin stattfindet. Aber es kommt noch
besser. Die Vitalkapazität beträgt, wenn sie richtig, richtig dolle schlecht ist einen Liter, die meisten von Euch dürften aber so 2,5-5 Liter VC haben. Die VC beschreibt, wieviel Luft ihr pro Atemzug maximal ein- und ausatmen könnt. Wenn ihr also sagen wir mal 3 Liter Luft

#HindiDiwas is celebrated on September 14 to commemorate the adoption of #हिंदी in Devanagari script as one of the official languages of India.

#हिंदी_दिवस Image
Often mistaken to be the 'national language' of India, #हिंदी was initially the official language of only nine states and five union territories including Delhi.

#हिंदी_दिवस #HindiDiwas2020
In the year 1881, Bihar was the first state of British India to have adopted #हिंदी as its sole official language.

The big implication of new rules in #multicap fund category by SEBI. An impromptu attempt at rambling up some thoughts. Would love comments and feedback no how to benefit from this trend. Some points i cover in tweets below 1/5
1) 18-20% of the Total Equity AUM is in Multicap Funds - Suddenly the rules of the game have changed. Will lead to merger and other creative solutions but not mad buying of smallcaps.
#FunFact - There are 35 schemes of #MultiCap Fund and 29 of #LargeCap & 27 of #LargeandMidcap Fund. #Multicap AUM = 1.46 lakh cr. #Largecap = 1.48 lakh cr. The regulator has a problem in principle and true to label issues. Why did they not notice till now? Source -AMFI site

Trivia Kemerdekaan

-A Thread-
1. Suara Bung Karno membaca teks Proklamasi direkam ulang

Ternyata, suara Bung Karno bukan direkam langsung saat pembacaan teks proklamasi. Rekaman itu memang suara asli Bung Karno, namun dibuat pada tahun 1951 di Radio Republik Indonesia (RRI) u/ kebutuhan dokumentasi negara✨
2. Perintah pertama Soekarno sebagai Presiden RI

Setelah ditetapkan, perintah pertama Soekarno sebagai seorang Presiden ternyata bukan membentuk kabinet, mempersiapkan rapat, atau menetapkan kebijakan penting. Perintah pertamanya ternyata adalah memesan 50 tusuk sate ayam!

In the end, @kdmcdonald2020 crushed 3-term incumbent Jessica Cooper by a nearly 2:1 margin. Let me explain why this one was so important to me personally:
Before I begin, it's important to understand:
1. For more than a decade before I delved into being a healthcare policy analyst, I was a freelance website developer.
2. I've had a long-standing policy of not discussing details of past clients publicly. This is the sole exception.
Back in 2012, I was hired by Cooper (who was then in her first term as Oakland County Prosecutor) to develop her re-election campaign website. It wasn't a huge job, and the site itself was a fairly standard campaign site for a county-level position. Nothing unusual.

“With the exception of Alabama, Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, & Wisconsin...”
FWIW, there's ~200 countries nationally, and over half of them have a case rate below 1.5 per thousand residents.

Every U.S. state & territory has a higher case rate than that except American Samoa & the Northern Mariana Islands.

"What about *mortality* rates, though?"

Well over half of countries have a COVID19 mortality rate below 0.04 per thousand.

Every U.S. state & territory is higher than that except Alaska, Hawaii, N. Mariana Islands, Guam & American Samoa.

Today’s #OldSchool chat will be about “Cooley High,” one of the great #Chicago classic films that often gets drowned out by other flicks like “The Blues Brothers” or even “Adventures In Babysitting.”
Cooley was a break from the "blax" films that were popular at the time. An autobiographical piece by Chicago writer Eric Monte, he modeled the main character "Preach" after himself. CH was a real high school that served the kids of Cabrini-Green before it was demolished in 1980.
While much of the cast was made of up-and-coming actors like Glynn Turman, Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs and Garrett Morris, the producers hired a lot of residents as cast members, including Jackie Taylor, who later founded the Blk Ensemble Theater. Some of them were natural actors.

For each like I'll tweet a useful fact about the Swedish language.
Swedish nouns have two genders: "utrum" and "neutrum", also called the common gender and the neuter gender in English. More names are en-ord/N-ord or ett-ord/T-ord.
2. When in doubt which gender a word has, either use a dictionary (😜), or use the common gender (en), since the majority of Swedish nouns take that one.
