#Binance announcing increasingly dire issues w/its fiat on and off ramps.

#CryptoCom's Euro bank accounts were frozen or seized by #BankOfLithuania on 1/21 for money laundering, terrorist financing, and sanctions violations (screenshot)

Let's dig...

Ω👇Ω ImageImage
Recently users of #CryptoCom were surprised to receive an email saying that #SEPA transfers of $EUR were being “migrated to a new provider” and thus Euro-denominated deposits and withdrawals were temporarily suspended.

Ω👇Ω Image
#Cryptocom customers couldn't deposit/withdraw for ~100 hours yet #CDC did not send any kind of prior notice to their customers. Many redditors confirm problems began > 24 hours BEFORE #CDC sent out the first (and only) email about the disruption.

Some got 0 emails.

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… 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

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.

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!

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

A sinusoidal grating looks like this…

#sinusoidal #grating Sinusoidal grating
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
