Time for Part 5. Part 4 is here: and talk a bit more about time, life and death in #Neolithic #Malta - the link between above & below is more than just location.
So, there was a time in the 1970s in #archaeology when we tried to make sense of things by testing hypotheses. Not a bad idea, but it doesn't always work & here's why (aside the fact that humans don't behave in a linear, ordered way).
Colin Renfrew decided to map locations of #megalithic sites & figure out land & territory. Sounds logical right? Especially back then. But the research question itself isn't divorced from our context in the present. To Renfrew it made sense that...

So Elon Musk may be busy throwing a tantrum, but Twitter is not quite dead yet and we have stuff to do and #archaeology to explore. So, part 4 (part 3 here if you missed it: ) #Malta
As above, so below I said last time. Let's poke around underground, for big buildings are not just above-ground. Welcome to the #Saflieni hypogeum, one of the best sites in the world. Yes, I said it and it's true.
@googlearts has a handy tour artsandculture.google.com/partner/hal-sa… but in all honesty you just need to visit. Tickets are via @heritagemalta & they sell out fast & with good reason. Book your flight to #Malta and these tickets at the same time.

I've been working on another Twitter thread - not because @netflix gives a stuff and the Hancock followers will keep being conspiracy idiots. I'm doing this b.c I care about #archaeology and #Malta. Now @FlintDibble has (independently) got a head start here, tis good. Go read.
Good. Now let's focus specifically on #Malta and #prehistory. Let's start with a location map because it's relevant - note we're at the southernmost tip of Europe and pretty much on the doorstep of North Africa. When we say Malta, we mean the entire archipelago. Map of Mediterranean showin...Close up map of the Maltese...
Malta is the bigger island, the middle one is Comino and above that we have Gozo. And other bits and pieces all around. But I'll focus on Malta and Gozo - or Għawdex to give it the proper name.

Las opciones con las que #OceanViking contó e ignoró antes de llegar a #Toulon (Francia):

Días 20-23 de octubre, @SOSMedIntl se situó a 110,1 millas naúticas de #Sfax (Túnez) como puerto seguro más próximo.

Decidió no poner a salvo a los inmigrantes, no era un puerto europeo. Image
27/10/22:

Con un total de 234 inmigrantes ilegales a bordo, @SOSMedIntl tuvo nuevamente la oportunidad de atender a la legislación marítima internacional para poner a salvo a la inmigración asistida.

A tan solo 56,2 millas náuticas -poco más de 100 km- se encontraba #Malta. Image
Tras ignorar un posible desembarco con seguridad en #Túnez y en #Malta, @SOSMedIntl se desplazó hasta aguas de la ciudad portuaria de #Catania.

La ONG se encontró con la oposición del Gobierno de coalición de @GiorgiaMeloni.

Pudo ponerles a salvo en dos ocasiones antes de esto. Image

1) Dal 2017 i governi italiani si sono resi complici di questi crimini. Nessuno può dire "non sapevo". Vi abbiamo fornito prove e ve le hanno fornite Onu e Corte penale internazionale. Il "Memorandum" con la #Libia condanna loro e condanna voi. Erano loro da fermare, non le Ong.
2) Vi abbiamo raccontato il #Libyagate che coinvolge politica, finanza, contrabbandieri, mafiosi. Tra stragi e affari attraverso #Malta e i personaggi coinvolti nella congiura contro #DaphneCaruanaGalizia

3) Avete sui vostri tavoli le condanne della giustizia italiana contro i torturatori nelle prigioni statali libiche.

Day 228 of #Putin's war.
It's already another bloody and murderous day in #Russia's war on its peaceful neighbour.

#Ukraine stands strong though.

Here's the daily thread.
Check through yesterday's news right here⬇️

Seventeen people murdered this morning as #Russia continues its merciless assault on #Zaporizhzhia

Numerous private houses and apartment blocks were damaged, over a hundred injured with 49 in hospital.

Good morning (or evening) to you all on Tues 4 October.

This is the start of my daily thread for Day 223, documenting #Russia's full invasion of #Ukraine

If you missed the MUSKalculations yesterday evening, you need to scroll through Monday's thread:

Another blow to #Russia as @nvidia finally announces it's stopping all operations in the Terrorist State.

The company makes chips, and though it had already suspended export, it kept a base there "to support employees"

(Paywall but you can listen free)

Plenty of smoke in #Donetsk on Monday evening.
Still no reports from the Occupiers as to what happened in the Occupied city.

2 children on the boat have died in recent days -- and the health of others are deteriorating.

To ignore such a tragedy, just off #Malta's coast, represents an unspeakable lack of humanity.

Time for someone to step up, @MaltaGov.
@MaltaGov That Syrians are still fleeing for #Europe is no surprise, particularly those in #Lebanon where authorities are preparing to *illegally force* them back to #Syria.

5+ million #Syria refugees remain in neighboring states & polling suggests ~0.5% would consider an eventual return.
@MaltaGov Why do almost all #Syria refugees refuse to consider any future return to #Syria?

The answer is obvious when you glance across basic facts -- see this thread from last week:

🆘~70 people adrift in Malta Search and Rescue zone!

Alarm Phone alerted RCC #Malta via email, but, once again, they are not reachable on the phone. The people in distress report that the engine stopped and that they need rescue urgently! Don't waste time, rescue now!
The approximately 70 people were able to restart their engine but have now run out of fuel! They report that one person on board has died, just 25 nautical miles from the Italian SAR. We have alerted authorities several times already - rescue is needed urgently!
🚩Don't forget them at sea!

The ~70 people called us again, nobody came to rescue them yet. The people are suffering as they don't have food and fuel is out as well. We urgently demand to rescue the group to prevent a tragedy at night!

There are many correct answers.

*Any* image can be reconstructed from a series of sinusoidal gratings.

A sinusoidal grating looks like this…

It’s called a sinusoidal grating because the grayscale values vary according to the sine function.

If you plot the values along a horizontal line of the grating, you’ll get a plot of a sine function Cross-section of a sinusoidal grating

I updated my #Flickr album on Black and White experiments. Adding a few pictures and sorting again. Adding a short snippet of the story behind the pictures flic.kr/s/aHsmVx3vdh
In 2014 just a few months after arriving in #France we visited #Normandy and the #D-Day landing beaches. Omaha Beach is one, the most (in)famous. The image of the perfectly aligned tombs in the cemetery impacted me and haunts me since then flic.kr/p/2nc2D8g

L'ultimo partito registrato in ordine di tempo, è #Volt|G/EFA, partito paneuropeo presente dal 2021 anche a Malta. Volt, che si definisce ultraprogressista per i canoni maltesi, ha pubblicato un manifesto che ha destato molto
scalpore e ha suscitato diverse critiche: ha proposto la legalizzazione dell'aborto, la creazione del reato di femminicidio e la legalizzazione dell'eutanasia, della cannabis e dei sex workers.
Volt propone, tra le altre cose, di promuovere le PMI,
l'aumento dell'energia prodotta da fonti rinnovabili, la promozione dell'agricoltura verticale e la promozione dell'idrogeno verde.
Volt è stato il primo partito nella storia di Malta a dichiararsi favorevole all'aborto e a candidare un trangender

Russia 🇷🇺 is a beautiful country. I have many dear Russian friends.

What Russian invasion army under Putin’s orders is doing in Ukraine is condemned by all of the International community.
@MFA @RT

theguardian.com/world/2022/feb… Image
Russia 🇷🇺 could be a prosperous nation if only the country was not run by Putin’s Silovik kleptocrats.

The only way for Russian youth to succeed in the future is to over-throw criminal Putin and choose #peace in Ukraine 🇺🇦. Stand up to Putin insanity!
#StandWithUkraine Image
Putin’s unjustified, criminal invasion is turning Russia 🇷🇺 into a pariah state.

The phase of invasion war can be over in days or weeks, but the World will not forget in a generation. Ukrainian 🇺🇦 people will never forget Putin’s Holodomor.

Un rasgo de la UE es la influencia de los pequeños Estados, lo que no es nuevo en la historia europea. Baste recordar el peso de los tres arzobispos electores (Maguncia, Tréveris y Colonia) en el el Sacro Imperio Romano o de las ciudades Estado italianas en la Baja Edad Media.
El Estado nación se fue imponiendo a partir de la Edad Moderna como modelo a imitar, hasta que el sistema no soportó su proliferación sin instancias supranacionales e implosionó en las dos GM. La solución resultante (CEE, ahora UE) evoca rasgos de una lejana gobernanza europea.
La elección de @EP_President ha suscitado diversos comentarios: tercera mujer que preside el PE o la ausencia de S&D de la presidencia de las 3 grandes instituciones 🇪🇺. Quizá lo más relevante sea que proviene de #Malta, con 500.000 habitantes, frente a los 450 millones de la UE.

🇲🇹Malte enregistre aujourd'hui 762 nouveaux cas positifs à la #Covid_19, contre 1 030 il y a 7 jours.

👉Soit une baisse des cas de -26,02%.

Il paraît donc maintenant assez clair que l'île a passé un pic de contamination pour cette vague de #Covid_19, avec #Omicron.

En ce qui concerne les décès et chiffres hospitaliers Covid :

👉2 décès ont aussi été signalés (vs 0 à J-7), soit 10 décès en une semaine.

🟡127 personnes positifs à la #Covid sont hospitalisées, soit +4 en 24 heures.

Wednesday's #Covid19 megathread makes an early start as there's so much news to bring you!

#Omicron takes centre stage in Europe with a raft of records (recap coming up), but #UK ministers are increasingly confident the NHS won't be swamped despite England's lack of restrictions
It turned out to be a terrible Tuesday, not just in #UK, which was just one of TEN European countries to hit all time high daily #Covid19 infection numbers.

#Cyprus #France #Greece #Iceland #Italy #Malta #Montenegro #Portugal and #Spain the others to set new records.
Concern in #Norway. The #Omicron wave looked to be beyond the peak; is it making a comeback or is it still delayed Christmas cases?
4,702 new #Covid19 infections, fewer than 100 down on last Weds.

Better health data. 315 in hospital, down 13 since y'day, although 120 are in ICU

This is the start of the daily #Covid19 thread for Tuesday.

So despite big increases in cases and hospitalisations, no further restrictions for #England. How bad will the data be today? We'll find out later and I'll update and analyse all the data worldwide as often as possible:
Boris has urged you all to be cautious in the packed bars and nightclubs on New Year's Eve, so that's ok then!

First to South America where #Argentina has just topped 20,000 new #Covid19 cases in a day for the first time since July.

20,263 is the daily total, up 280% compared with the week before.
31 deaths.

Monday's #Covid19 thread starts here. Still holidays around the world for many, including #UK. But here all eyes on Boris Johnson - will he, or won't he make more restrictions or even lockdown? We should know today.

I've got more hospital data in the thread, updated real time..
So let me start with #UK. I've managed to get new health data, which will be critical to the decision on new restrictions in #England

As of y'day there were 7,536 #Covid19 patients in English hospitals; up 17.1% in a week.

But 2,425 of those are in London and that's up 45.5%
Strangely, South-East & South-West areas of #England have fewer #Covid19 patients in hospital.

Occupied hospital beds by region (weekly change):

#London 2,425 +46%
#Midlands 1,345 +17%
#East 681 +16%
#NorthWest 945 +8%
#Yorkshire/NE 847 +3%
#SouthEast 803 -2%
#SouthWest 490 -5%
