NEW: #Russian forces made marginal gains around #Bakhmut today, but Russian forces remain unlikely to have advanced at the tempo that Russian sources claimed.
2/ Geolocated footage shows that Russian forces made marginal advances southeast of #Bakhmut but @TheStudyofWar remains unable to confirm most other claimed gains around Bakhmut made since November 27.
3/ Some Russian milbloggers made unsubstantiated claims that Russian forces broke through the Ukrainian defensive line south of #Bakhmut along the T0513 highway to advance towards Chasiv Yar.

When I say a shift toward alt proteins can help address multiple global challenges in a very direct way, I'm not just blowing smoke.

@GoodFoodInst is the only org to appear on @voxdotcom's list of best charities for reducing animal suffering AND climate change.

Links: ⬇️
For animal impact, Vox relies on the assessment of @AnimalCharityEv, which uses three main criteria: “likely to produce the greatest gains for animals, "actively evaluate and improve their programs, and "have a demonstrated need for more funding."
For climate impact, Vox's isn't the only list GFI is on. Their recommendations are based in part of assessments performed by @FoundersPledge and @GivingGreenE.…

It’s #GivingTuesday and 2 generous donors are matching donations to CREW up to $35,000!

A donation of any amount supports our efforts to hold Trump accountable and root out corruption. Here’s just some of the work donors have supported in the past year 🧵…
We urged secretaries of state, attorneys general and Congress to enforce the 14th Amendment’s Disqualification Clause to keep insurrectionists from serving in elected office. When the time comes, we'll take action to disqualify Trump.
We uncovered serious failures in federal law enforcement’s response to threats ahead of the January 6th insurrection—and sued multiple agencies after learning that text messages from the days surrounding January 6th had been erased.

Happy birthday (November 29) to the Father of Neurology, Jean-Martin Charcot (1825-1893)!

I wouldn't say we're best friends exactly, but yeah, we used to hang out in Paris together.
1/4 Image
Charcot was a neurologist in Paris in the late 1800s, when neurology was developing as a field. He was the 1st chair of neurology, and was a celebrity doctor at the time (this is a poem written and published in the newspaper after his death in 1893). 2/8 Image
He was so famous that charlatans used his name after his death to sell "Kola Nervine Tablets" made from the "wonder-working Kola nut." 3/8 Image

Fact-checking 10 common arguments about porn:
Common Argument: 1 “Porn actually decreases sexual violence.”

Some argue that porn has the potential to decrease sexual violence by providing a “healthy outlet” for people who would otherwise act out in sexually harmful ways, but research shows that this simply isn’t the case.
Common Argument: 1 ✅

In fact, research consistently shows that porn consumption is actually associated with increased sexual violence.

New Disabled South is fighting for a South that values disabled people. For too long, policy choices have disproportionately impacted the lives of disabled people in the South.
Whether it’s the been through the perpetuation of systemic racism, ableism, misogyny, homophobia, and anti-trans violence by state & local lawmakers, the destruction of coastal Southern towns due to a lack of action on climate change, the construction of new barriers to voting,
the deprioritization of affordable and accessible health care by those in power, and more, disabled people – particularly those who are multiply marginalized – are literally fighting for their lives, all in the middle of this ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

I am a Mom, first.

This is why I am donating to @ks_found today. #GivingTuesday

I am also a designer, citizen, and individual, who believes in freedom of body, mind, thought, words, choices and knowledge.
On the earth now, we are at a crossroads & at every point we must stand up for freedom. Each of us, at every point, in any way that we can.

Freedom is not for free, never has been. Many of us see before us tyranny. Tyranny of ideas, words, information, education, knowledge.
We see it. We know it in our bones.

It is a dark road ahead if we do not stand up now for freedom, in any way that we can.

I am a designer & former professor. I have taught the history of propaganda, know the symbols, the cadence, nuance and power of imagery, color, typography.

This #GivingTuesday, a quick 🧵on why @RefugeesIntl's mission is so critically important right now, and why your support matters.

tl;dr - the greatest long-term threats to asylum commitments and refugee well-being are in the political/policy space - RI's core focus.
RI's mission is a unique combo of watchdog, advocate, and expert advisor toward the humanitarian system and the political actors who shape it.

Doing that credibly requires independence from those big players - so RI doesn't take funding from governments or the UN.
That mission is more important than ever. The last decade has seen a major erosion in political support for core asylum and refugee norms.

The US and EU in particular have built numerous workarounds to avoid fulfilling their commitments to protect people displaced by crisis.

This #GivingTuesday, please consider donating to @the_TFP. We are an entirely volunteer run organization that relies entirely on individual donations to fund our work. We are dedicated to tracking, educating, and acting on the anti-trans legislative crisis in the United States. The Trans Formations Project logo, which features a phoenix
Despite being less than two years old, our work tracking anti-trans legislation has been praised and cited by a variety of sources, including The Independent, The Washington Post, CNN, The Daily Beast, NBC, and most recently, NPR.
We were honored to be able to present our findings and an overview of the crisis and our work against it at the Philly Trans Wellness Conference (@TransPHL), the largest trans-specific conference in the world, this past summer.

There are many wonderful ministries you can support over and above what you give to your local congregation.

Since today is #GivingTuesday, might I suggest two reasons for considering a gift to @ReformTheoSem?
(1) The marks of an RTS education: Students at RTS receive ministerial training marked by biblical fidelity, confessional integrity, and academic excellence. As much as it ever has, the church today needs well-formed, well-prepared leaders.
(2) The mode of an RTS education: Though much can be shared and accomplished through online communities, much cannot. Face to face, in-person instruction continues to provide the best context for forming pastors, teachers, counselors, and missionaries to serve Christ's church.

🧵Part 2 on Russian defenses in eastern #Kherson:

Russian forces may be attempting to delay (slow down) rather than defend against (stop) a Ukrainian offensive on the east (left) bank of the #Dnipro River.
2/ Russian forces would presumably delay until they can deploy reinforcements to either stop or slow Ukrainian forces from breaking through secondary and tertiary lines of defense that protect critical GLOCs both to #Crimea and to western #Zaporizhia Oblast (as shown in the map).
3/ It is unclear if the Russian military leadership foresees a delay mission at the operational or the strategic level. An operational-level delay would require holding long enough to allow forces already in theater to move from other areas to eastern #Kherson.

EXPLOSIVE—We now learn Trump had tested positive for #COVID19 **3 days** before his first debate against Joe Biden, says former chief of staff Mark Meadows—positive test on Sept 26th, same day as this WH’s infamous superspreading SCOTUS nominating event:👇…
2) The list of infected that day at the WH were long…. But now Trump maybe could have been possibly the INDEX case?
3) Meadows says the positive test had been done with an old model kit. He told Trump the test would be repeated with “the Binax system, and that we were hoping the first test was a false positive”.
