Bonjour les #avgeeks !
Ça faisait longtemps que je n’avais pas parlé d’un de mes vols…
Alors voici un petit #thread de ma dernière rotation sur #Houston ⬇️
Je vais commencer par un petit bilan carbone de ce vol : le plein de passagers et pas mal de fret (17T) pendant 9h45 de vol nous coutent 44T5 de carburant.
Ça équivaut à 1,75 litres / 100 km / équivalent passager ou un total de 377 Kg de CO2 par passager. 😎
On continue avec le seul endroit touristique de cette ville riche du pétrole environnant : le @SpaceCenterHou
Un « musée » dans un centre spatial toujours actif dont on visite quelques pépites en petit train.

June home builder sentiment and survey results are in. Top themes: 1) A lot more new home buyers cancelling. 2) Price cuts becoming fairly common. 3) Drop in demand finally cooling construction cost pressures (builder layoffs also happening). Market commentary to follow…
#Atlanta builder: “Someone turned out the lights on our sales in June!”
#Austin builder: “Sales have fallen off a cliff. We’re selling 1/3 of what we sold in March and April. Trades are more willing to negotiate pricing since market has adjusted significantly past 60 days.”

May homebuilder survey results published last week. Top themes: 1) Builder metrics quickly deteriorating across the board. 2) Price cuts on standing ‘speculative’ inventory accelerating. 3) Buyer incentives are back. Market commentary to follow…
#Austin builder: “Some parts of town where finished homes are now taking a month to sell versus hours. Market is definitely correcting. Incentives are back and seeing some builders cutting prices on inventory.”
#Baltimore builder: “Customers now mentioning potential reduction in prices and/or increase in incentives.”

"Insieme ci riprenderemo la Camera, ci riprenderemo il Senato e, nel 2024, ci riprenderemo quella grande e bellissima Casa Bianca che amiamo e a cui teniamo così tanto".
È con queste parole che Donald #Trump infiamma la convention della NRA, la potentissima lobby delle armi. Image
A Houston, Texas, lo stesso stato di #Uvalde, #Trump fa quello che gli riesce meglio: vellicare gli istinti di quella (cospicua) parte di Paese che rappresenta (e rappresenterà) lo zoccolo duro della sua base elettorale. Image
Perché è questa la non-notizia della serata. Tra un richiamo ad "America First" ed un altro al "Make America Great Again", The Donald lascia intendere di non essersi ancora liberato dall'ossessione della sconfitta, dalla voglia della grande rimonta.
È il tema della sua vita. Image

At Discovery Green across the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston where people have gathered to protest the NRA’s annual convention set to take place there following the Robb Elementary School schooting in Uvalde, Texas earlier this week.
Follow me for updates from the protest and @chron!
There is heavy police presence outside of the convention center across from where people are protesting. Not seeing much police on the side where most protesters are. #NRAconvention

Going downtown to protest the NRA & GOP in #Houston tomorrow? Please be prepared and take care of yourself. Allow me to offer tips based on my decades of experience as a lawyer (tho this is NOT legal advice), activist, and person who hates hot weather. A thread:
Practically speaking, be prepared for the weather. Hydrate, wear sunscreen & a hat, sturdy walking shoes, have a minor first aid kit (bandaids, mostly), a soft plastic water bottle, and a couple of small quick snacks in case you have a dizzy spell.
Commit to be safe & nonviolent, but have a plan for things getting bad. Have a place to meet your friends if you have to disperse quickly. Don't wear jewelry or baggy clothes that can be grabbed and yanked. Let someone know if you are going alone & check in when you get home.

a 🧵
Inspired by @Teri_Kanefield
2/ I was raised Catholic and believe in this (ctto via reddit)

Love thy neighbor.
All neighbors. No exceptions.

If I really hated them then I just did not hang out w them 🤷🏻‍♀️. No hateful speech or hateful laws.
3/ Most of my family in Texas is religious, republican, & single issue voters. Anti abortion, no matter what. Even if M@ga Trumpism breaks all the other 9 commandments.

I hate that I now have to discuss forced-birth issues w beloveds.

April homebuilder survey results are here. Top themes: 1) Demand is slowing, namely entry-level due to payment shock. 2) Investors are pulling back. 3) Ripple effect of rising rates starting to hit move-up market. Market commentary to follow…
#Dallas builder: “Interest lists are shrinking or buyers are truly pausing.”
#Houston builder: “Many first-time buyers simply no longer qualify with the increase in interest rates, as their debt-to-income ratio gets out of whack.”

A thread of Catholic churches that have been vandalized, attacked, and their members harassed by pro-abortion extremists:
Sacred Heart of Mary in #Boulder, Colorado (Tuesday, May 3rd, 2022). The church was also vandalized last September, with similar pro-abortion slogans, along with slashed tires and smashed windows. ImageImageImage

TY @innodim for inviting me to speak! My cognitive PEM wouldn’t let me be great but I appreciate her encouragement & summary! Want to be sure my main points are clear in re to Black Maternal #Mental Health, Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders #PMADs, & disparities.#AIMART #BMHW22
I am no expert, so I'll share what I know. Black mothers are more at risk of #PMADs & are less likely to receive treatment b/c the structural social & economic inequities as a result of #antiBlack #racism & #misogynoir in this white supremacist patriarchal society.#BMHW22
“Close to 40% of Black mothers will suffer from postpartum depression [(PPD)]” OR ‘Systemic racism & sexism harm Black mothers which manifest as PPD for a reported ~40%.’ Addressing these risk factors associated w PMAD is key:
Lack of access to high-quality medical care

Ready for the #CFB Analytics Spring Top 40? Here we go. This Power Ranking is derived from a model which utilizes full Coach Staff efficiency metrics, roster talent, & returning production among other metrics. No opinion here, I just regurgitate the numbers. #NoOpinionJustNumbers
40 #Kentucky #BBN #SEC Power Rating: 61.726
Returning Production for the Wildcats may be a problem. At 39.72%, it puts them at 113th in the country. The schedule is manageable tho drawing Ole Miss & Miss State out the West. #CFB
39 #Washington #PurpleReign #Pac12
Power Rating: 62.271
Really like the new coaching staff in Seattle. Should put them in a better position to win. Roster talent purge from the prev regime will have an early effect (last 2 classes were 39th, 86th) but the ship has been righted.

The vanity I bought had photos in it. The vanity is 1930s/40. #Pennsylvania stamp underneath. Bought in #Houston - #Spring area of #Texas. I don't know if they go with the vanity.
I'm posting the pictures in case anyone recognizes themselves or others. I'll return the photos to family if they want them.
Most don't have writing. A few do.

🚆🔍| AMLO desestimó las críticas de #SelvaMeDelTren por venir de intereses privados.

Así que hablemos de datos oficiales sobre irregularidades y señalamientos vs #TrenMaya.

Si creen que el #AIFA es el peor de los megaproyectos, entonces vean este hilo


¿Cuánto cuesta💰el #TrenMaya?

Se proyectó inicialmente en 120 mil mdp.

La SHCP registró 167 mil mdp.

Un análisis de #FONATUR dice que 189 mil mdp

⚠️Pero el exdirector de Fonatur reveló, antes de ser despedido, que costaría 230 mil mdp.

🚨Se disparó el costo al doble (91%)
¿Cuánto lleva de avance el #TrenMaya?

Con corte a 2021, #Fonatur reportó a la Secretaría de Hacienda un avance del 25.5%.

Tiene un gran riesgo de no ser entregado en 2023 como prometió AMLO.

Espero que no lo inauguren a medias, no queremos otra #Línea12.

Homebuilder survey results are in for February. Top themes: 1) Record high new home price increases at +20% YOY nationally. 2) Record low builder finished inventory. 3) Demand still off the charts & quality of home buyer prospect lists still solid. Market commentary to follow…
#Charlotte builder: “Restricting sales in all communities. Several communities with VIP lists over 1,000 and one of those communities only has 51 homes. Increasing mortgage rates haven’t slowed buyers down at all.”
#Charlotte builder: “HELP WANTED signs have driven direct construction costs up +20%. Keeping your employees from jumping ship to work for another builder costs 25% more.”

Happening now: #Houston City Council considering contract for city redistricting issues with law firm of #txlege Sen. Royce West. Council member @MikeKnox1Hou is requesting a 1 week delay to review.
@MikeKnox1Hou Now @AbbieKamin is saying there are many lawyers in #txlege & it's not unusual for them to be hired for such contracts.

Harris County Elections still only has partial numbers reported. Less than half of precincts reporting. Last year they took election responsibility away from the elected County Clerk & Registrar and gave to an appointed Elections Administrator.
#Houston #Texas #Election2022
Yesterday Harris County Elections informed the Texas Secretary of State that they would be unable to report vote results by the statutory deadline of 7 p.m. today. SoS TX says they are "closely monitoring" and stand "ready to assist."
The elections administrator's salary was slated to be $190k, appointment was given to a former staffer for State Sen. Sylvia Garcia who had run unsuccessfully for Houston City Council, but had not run elections previously.

Happening now: press conference with #Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner and Police Chief Troy Finner on the annual "March on Crime." #Texas #Crime
Turner is asked about the ordinance he proposed regarding bail setting. Turner says it's still in the works.
(Not sure city or county has authority to do this- some think it's only #txlege)
When asked about the officers who are supposed to be taking overtime to add 125 patrols per day, Finner says he thinks they're doing "pretty good," but says there's some who've called in " sick and whatnot."

Paper alert! I'm going to share the story of my paper with @barabasi , "Recovery Coupling in multilayer networks" out today in @NatureComms #networkscience #resilience #research 👨‍🔬🧑‍💻A thread.🧵
People have been solving models for interdependent networks for a while. The math is elegant and the models can easily show a plethora of interesting dynamical phenomena. I even wrote a review on the subject… #resilience #infrastructure #physics
The trouble is, most models require that a power asset can fail and cause a communication outage AND that a communication outage can cause a power outage. The first is common. The second? Hard to find. Both at once? No one has ever reported it. Image
