I’m back at the federal courthouse in downtown Los Angeles for what should be final day of prosecution testimony in U.S. Rep. Jeff Fortenberry’s trial. Federal agents are final two witnesses, after jurors heard Monday from his ex-friends Toufic Baaklini and Elias Ayoub. ⚖️🧵⚖️ Image
Regarding scheduling, after the jury left yesterday, Fortenberry’s lawyer Glen Summers told Judge Blumenfeld the defense is “trying to make really efficient decisions, even to the point of cutting witnesses” and asked if “the government can do the same.”
Summers said prosecutors have been asking witnesses to narrate what’s on screen. (This gets back into the lack of objections. There is a lot going on that would have garnered full-throttled objections in other trials I’ve covered. Most prominent are narrative answers.)

1/ Former #Brahmos chief A #SivathanuPillai writes in his book ‘The Path Unexplored’ that army commanders tried their best to sabotage the Brahmos cruise missile - India's most successful weapon. (He doesn't name them but it's the Chandigarh Lobby)
2/Pillai reveals that these senior military commanders wanted to scuttle the #BrahMos project by declaring its performance unsatisfactory. Their plan was to continue India’s dependency on imports, which would result in more kickbacks for middlemen.
3/The #Chandigarh Gang is not exclusively based in Chandigarh, but is only centered there. Its elements exist in different parts of the country. Army chief #GeneralVKSingh broke the back of the Chandigarh Gang, but it continues to survive.

Nació en la Unión Soviética, pero se convirtió en una leyenda de #Usa. Si la comparáramos con alguien de los Olímpicos sería como fusionar a Bolt con Kipchoge. Ella es la reina del atletismo paralímpico: señoras y señores, con ustedes, Tatyana McFadden.
#Paralympics #Athletics Image
Tatyana vio la luz en Leningrado el 21 de abril de 1989. Era una época convulsa en ese coloso rojo, que veía como el mundo que había imaginado comenzaba a colapsar. La pequeña no cayó en este mundo en el mejor momento posible y lo notaría en sus primeros años de existencia...
La soviética nació con espina bífida, lo que la llevó a tener que vivir en una silla de ruedas. Sin embargo, su familia era muy pobre y no podía darle los tratamientos médicos que necesitaba, por lo que la dejaron en un orfanato.

Nadando ya era muy buena, pero cuando se subió a la bicicleta arrasó con todos. Hoy ganó su 15° oro, algo que la convierte en una de las atletas más laureadas de la historia de los #Paralympics. Señoras y señores, con ustedes, Sarah Storey 🇬🇧👑 Image
El 26 de octubre de 1977 vio la luz en Manchester una mujer llamada a hacer historia. Nació sin una mano izquierda funcional ya que su brazo se enredó en el cordón umbilical en el útero y su mano no se desarrolló de manera normal. Image
Curiosamente, su primer deporte no fue el que la hizo más exitosa (el ciclismo), sino que comenzó fuera de las pistas, más precisamente en el agua 🏊‍♀️. Y es que, cuando tenía seis años, miró a Sarah Hardcastle en los Juegos de Los Ángeles 1984 y sintió ganas de comenzar a nadar. Image

Australia has for years been battling to keep the Great Barrier Reef off the “in danger” list. On June 22, 2021, a UN committee recommended that the GBR should be added to a list of “in danger” World Heritage Sites.

Read more about Great Barrier Reef in the thread below:

The #GBR is 2,300 km long and extends across 346,000 sq. km. area, hosting an assemblage of fishes and invertebrates in the reefs, sharks, rays, anemones and myriad other forms all of which need a delicate ecological balance to thrive.

#GBR won a place on the World Heritage List under the World Heritage Convention, 1972, as it has outstanding universal value. As a fabled wonder of the natural world, Australia’s GBR and its diversity of #marine life found a place on UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 1981.

This weekend @HuskerFBNation announced that they would wear helmet stickers to honor George Flippin, the team’s first Black player (1891-94, pic below is the ‘91 team)

It’s good to honor Flippin, but we should also take an honest look at what his time at Nebraska was like

Flippin was one of several Black athletes at PWIs in the late 19c, so he wasn’t unprecedented. But he was unusual.

Flippin’s appearances on the 1891 team earned positive press from Omaha (left) and Iowa’s student newspaper (right), which described him as the team’s best player
As for his style of play, these descriptions from Nebraska sources provide a nice glimpse. The game back then was more physical, as the forward pass wasn’t legal yet. Having someone who could shake off would-be tacklers and move the line forward was essential.

(1/n) This comment and our reply on our #Nature paper looking at fish behaviour and #oceanacidification has gotten a lot attention. Unfortunately, some of it has been very negative and unprofessional. Here’s my POV.
(2/n) First, this is a topic that folks feel passionate about. That’s great, and I’m glad the paper and both comments have sparked discussion. This is a healthy part of the scientific process and how we progress as a community.
(3/n) However, devolving into name calling and mud-slinging helps nothing, and is harmful esp to those of us without permanent positions on all sides. We don’t always have to agree scientifically, but please let’s be civil and respectful.

Nebraska leaves the Big Ten, signs a streaming deal with Amazon -- giving them access to the program a la 'Hard Knocks' -- and giving NU a direct & unprecedented pipeline to proper medical supplies and merch distribution (I have no idea how this actually works, so bear with me).
They show a fully televised scrimmage, a 7-on-7s contest, and a skills challenge on consecutive weekends that enable the team to showcase themselves and enable Amazon to have an "Adults Only", swear-words/drinking encouraged broadcast of a game against Iowa after a few weeks.
They also feature Scott Frost and Mario Verduzco going one-on-one in both chess and beer pong. Iowa gets a $2,000,000 check for participating and Nebraska makes bank.
