Did you know Ireland has the lowest ecological integrity in Europe?

Our native and natural ecology has been torn away for commercial gain

On #StPatricksDay2023 I want to shout out to my compatriots from #Ireland producing some of the most incisive, compelling, and agenda-setting scholarship in global constitutional law today. Read them, follow them, connect with them.

A loooong (but very incomplete) thread 🧵
A few quick starting notes for a global audience.
I often think constitutional law research by Irish scholars is so rich because of our unique context, in a constitutional system that has one foot in colonialism and conflict, and one (today) in the rich Global North.
#Ireland's war of independence, civil war, 1922 Constitution, partition, and 1937 Constitution (still in force) sets our experience apart from the gradualist constitutional development of e.g. #Canada, #Australia, #NewZealand, but has commonalities with other states (e.g. India).

Do ppl understand that ppl die from #MECFS?
Common cause is starvation as the stomach shuts down.

We're now seeing trend amongst #LongCovid patients; where many of those severely ill are seeing huge rapid weight loss. I'm begging parents to take action early if your child 1)
Has the signs of #LongCovidKids.
Majority of ppl who become severe do not start out that way. Rather they steadily decline.
Common cause of decline is pushing through PEM.This is why we talk about the importance of early diagnosis. Promise you as a parent if your child becomes 2)
Severely ill w LC, you'll need to know you've done everything to care for them from the start. There are many parents out there w sick children who

See my latest report to get caught up on key points of discussion from the second session last September.

Session Chair @Tumlleh opens with a call to shoulder our collective responsibility with awareness of urgency to address threats to space systems. #SpaceThreatsOEWG
The Chair notes that there can be no progress if we see this as a struggle b/w different groups and interests. Our discussion is not about opposition, but a GLOBAL issue that affects all countries and persons. #SpaceThreatsOEWG

Another reason why I should leave San Francisco is the fact that I have fought every day for this city and rarely ever is there any support or team work. Whenever I walk through San Francisco I only ever see @bettersoma , @mattdorsey and Mr. J J in the trenches on the frontlines.
People complain every day but don’t ever do anything about it. It makes everything seem pointless. @michelletandler talks about fentanyl. When is she going to talk about our fentanyl emergency petition that has almost 1000 signatures? It takes two seconds to share petition.
I love @GMcDee2 @JacquiBerlinn because they aren’t picking and choosing what is “cool” to support. They support everything that is dedicated to combating fentanyl. They not only do their own fighting but they also support other people fights instead of picking what is “cool.”

Sources believe UNFIL driver was executed, bullet to head, after vehicle flipped over. Assassins used tools to cut through bulletproof vehicle.

Claim that bullet hit driver in head as he sped away challenged by what appears to be very thick bulletproof glass. #Ireland #Lebanon
The following image supports the narrative that Irish UNIFIL was assassinated point blank. Driver door shows signs of being pried open 👇 #Lebanon #Ireland
The image also shows concentrated bullet marks on windows, consistent with deliberate attempt to kill, not bullets sprayed at a car as it sped away as initial local reports suggested. #Lebanon #Ireland #UNIFIL

Throughout the rest of the month, I will be sharing some festive snippets and oddities🎄

I'll be adding them to this thread ✨ Keep your eyes peeled 👀

A sprig of mistletoe that had been used in the Christmas decorations of a church would bring good luck to its possessor 🌿

If an unmarried woman placed a sprig of mistletoe taken from the parish church under her pillow, she would dream of her future husband 💍

This is thought to be the earliest photograph of a snowman in the world and it was taken in Wales ❄

It was taken by Mary Dillwyn (c.1853) who is thought to be one of the earliest female photographers in the world 📷

A leak from the @EU_EDPB reveals that the #EU's top #privacy regulator is about to overrule the Irish Data Protection Commission and declare #Facebook's business model illegal, banning #surveillance-based #ads without explicit consent:

In some ways, this is unsurprising. Since the #GDPR's beginning, it's been crystal clear that the intention of the landmark privacy regulation was to extinguish commercial surveillance and ring down the curtain on #ConsentTheater. 3/

What we're witnessing in Ukraine during the last 9 months isn't a new thing: in fact, Russians have been trying to destroy Ukrainians for centuries.
We must learn from history for the sake of our future.
Read below⬇️ Image
1⃣What is the Holodomor?

Holodomor literally means "murder by hunger". Also known as the terrorist famine caused by the USSR.
Ukrainians of the XX century experienced famine three times - in 1921-1923, 1932-1933 and 1946-1947.
The Holodomor of 1932-1933 became the largest genocide of the Ukrainian nation.
By the end of 1933, according to various sources, at least 4.5 million Ukrainians slowly died of starvation.
Every year, Ukraine honors their memory on the last Saturday of November.

9 months ago today #Russia decided to break international law and condemn hundreds of thousands to death, disability and destruction

It's Day 274 of the invasion of #Ukraine, and here's Thursday's daily thread with all the news

Yesterday's news is here:
When the elite becomes diluted...

#Russia's crack airborne units couldn't defend the right bank of #Kherson - will they fare better in #Donbas where #Ukraine cannot target supply lines as easily.

Here's the UK Intel report for Thursday:
#StopRussia
Early, unconfirmed, reports of a strike by #Russia in #Kherson

A rocket landed in the courtyard of one of the high-rise buildings in the city, but no reports of injuries.

🇬🇧In the #UK, if your taxable income is over £150,000, you’ll have to pay 45% income tax.

But your foreign-sourced income may be tax-exempt if you are a non-domiciled resident in the UK. You will have remittance of paying taxes during the first 15 years (soon will be 5)
🇮🇪#Ireland's tax system is based on residence, so there is no tax on worldwide income for nonresidents (if you decide you don’t want to live in Ireland during your residence). However, getting permanent residence in Ireland means you will be taxed on Irish-sourced income

1/18.📜NEW BLOG: We have seen quite a few pledges that have been framed as “finance for #LossAndDamage”. But are they really? This blog provides an overview of all the pledges thus far at #COP27 in chronological order.

🔗Read it here: lossanddamagecollaboration.org/pages/festival… Image
2/18. On the 20th of September, #Denmark🇩🇰 pledged €13m for #LossAndDamage, a package which includes finance for the #GlobalShield Against Climate Risk, support for CSOs to do projects on the ground, and some other money that is yet to be allocated for a specific use.
3/18. Crucially, all of this money is new and on top of #Denmark’s 🇩🇰 0.7% commitment to ODA, therefore not a diversion of cash from other vital #ClimateFinance projects.

1: It's been a long time since I blogged about anything, but I feel like writing one about #Israel and #Ireland. Some loosely connected thoughts that need thinking and development (using Twitter as my notepad here):
2: Despite challenging political relationship, so much obvious potential for synergy and development between the two countries. Both are ambitious small countries that leverage their diaspora populations well.
3: Convergence of interest in tech. Both can be good incubators for startups and gateways to larger markets. Both seek to punch about their weight internationally and both succeed to good degrees.
