Nigeria is a beautiful place and Taraba State particularly Sardauna LGA is indeed natures gift to Nigeria. This is a thread about my trip to the most beautiful place in Nigeria. #Nigeria #Taraba #SardaunaLGA #Mambilla #Gembu
@Emexie_ @enigma_kaye and I left for Jalingo from Abuja on a rainy Wednesday morning. The trip was uneventful with many checkpoints on the way. It finally stopped raining somewhere around Wukari. Overall, it was a smooth journey #RoadTrip #Nigeria #Jalingo
We arrived Jalingo a lil past 6pm. Trip lasted about 11hrs. My friend Jerry picked us from the motor park to Sanaf Suites where we had dinner and settled down in preparation for our trip the next day #Jalingo #RoadTrip

1. @ExtinctionR Having looked at some of your policies & grievances my advice to you as a scientist is to do your own research before you jump to conclusions; resist the temptation to go down a EnergyDeadEnd path before really appreciating after years of research life's realities
2. @ExtinctionR scenario has come about through a few scientists exaggerating #ClimateChange which is a natural phenomena that has occurred since Earth had an atmosphere; one of the variables keeping us warm is yes photosynthesising #TraceGas #CO2 as well as water vapour (clouds)
3. @ExtinctionR Earth's CO2 levels vary over time & currently only 0.041% or to make it sound larger 410ppm on average; at levels below 200ppm to 150ppm #photosynthesis ceases & all life relying on plants will die off.
Many other variables are involved with #ClimateChange e.g.Sun

#ecologie #foret Je lis souvent que « les écolos prétendent que la #nature disparaît, alors que la forêt progresse. Ce sont des menteurs. »
Thread : non.
Cette lecture du discours écologiste sur la disparition de la nature consiste à faire à deux reprises une même erreur : penser que forêt égale nature (« vert », « écologique », etc) et réciproquement.
Ce n’est pas vrai. Et c’est pour ça que la nature peut disparaître alors même que le taux de boisement augmente (et de fait, il augmente, en Europe, depuis 150 ans).

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.

Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

India (Bhārat), aka Republic of India (Bhārat Gaṇarājya) constitutes a mosaic of paradoxes and contradictions starting with the existence of gigantic socio-economic disparities which are in sharp contrast with the spectacular technological development in most productive sectors.
Such contradictions reflect significant measurement discrepancies which, in India's case, could be on the order of hundreds of millions of people.
Furthermore, there is the problem of Islamic terrorists, who are trained abroad and find easy fuel in the contradictions within it.
Finally, there’s agriculture which, by some estimates, accounts for 90% of India’s water consumption. Farmers meet irrigation demands by indiscriminately extracting groundwater, which some say accounts for a quarter of the world’s groundwater usage.

Gli esperti lo ripetono ormai da diversi anni. Con un’alimentazione sana si prevengono fattori di rischio importanti come il sovrappeso e l’obesità. Una dieta povera dal punto di vista nutrizionale, invece, può facilitare lo sviluppo di diverse neoplasie.

"Last month Miki Zohar, a legislator in the ruling Likud party, observed not only that there is a 'Jewish race', but that it represents 'the highest human capital, the smartest, the most comprehending'."

Read the Talmud. And Zohar (Cabala). #Supremacist #misanthropy #misogyny
"..the entire Jewish race is the highest human capital, the smartest, the most comprehending."

Miki Zohar, lawyer, politician, #Israel's ruling Likud party timesofisrael.com/israeli-lawmak…

Pues me voy a animar como dije el otro día a hacer un proyecto 365, pero en vez de haciendo fotos, editando fotos mías antiguas, random, basadas en el mood de cada día.
La única limitación que me voy a poner, va a ser el formato 1:1... A ver lo que sale xD
#365photochallenge
I´ll say it also in English :)
I´m gonna try a photography 365 project, but instead of taking photos, processing old random photos of mine...
Only one rule: the square format.
Let´s see what I got, which will be directly affected by the mood of the day...

@TuckerCarlson Looking at #nature we see diversity as not only a strength but a necessity for survival. When it comes to humans, however, we don't look at how much cooperation there is in nature which helps diversity thrive. Instead we limit diversity of thought which can stagnate minds...
@TuckerCarlson ...so we don't grow and thrive as well as we could. A crow doesn't ask an elk to be something it isn't. An elk doesn't ask a wolf to be different either. There are many lessons in #nature from which we can learn about being better humans.
@TuckerCarlson When it comes to #immigration few look at why America has done it better than most other countries, because we used to take assimilation into account more than just doing a body count. A common language helps a great deal in assimilating immigrants, yet we resist this today.

This morning I've finished Scott Kellys (@StationCDRKelly) Book "Endurance" ( bit.ly/endurance-scot… ). Some thoughts below.
First, thank you Scott for sharing your story along with many personal insights from your time in space. It's great to learn more about the long path to become an astronaut and all the immense effort behind the human space program.
While reading Scotts book I got to understand the scale of the challenges coming with living and working in space better. It starts with having no gravity assisting you with daily life, keeping yourself healthy and alert for the hostile environment you are living in.

Sitting here in Denver waiting for a new plane (yay for the pilot who refused a broken one), & enjoying video of our fun bison encounter after filming wrapped yesterday. Growing up in CO we visited bison farms on school trips, but this was new to my NYC colleagues! #nature
Yes, that growl is from the bison. It's the sound you get if a tiger and a cow got busy.

(This is why I'm not a biologist. I would have too much fun laughing at the animals.)
Should've clarified: this was Yellowstone yesterday. I was just connecting through Denver today!

The #legitimacy of any form of #government is not and cannot be based upon #consent, but upon how well it protects the rights of those who refuse to consent.
When the bullshit is stripped away, #Socialism is #theft, and can never be a moral form of political economy, because it cannot protect the rights of those who refuse to consent to the theft of their earned wealth. Those who do consent are not prevented under any other system…
from engaging in #voluntary #cooperative #ownership of #capital. Therefore, #Socialism is not defined by voluntary participation, but by #coercion, or #theft, a universal #moral harm. #Intent is not #magic. Good intent and good works do not and cannot excuse the theft.

de tweetstorm die terugkwam, deze keer netjes gebundeld zoals het heurt:
lichte en zware voorwerpen vallen even snel, dacht Galileo al (als je even buiten de luchtweerstand rekent)
1/20
gek eigenlijk: andere natuurkrachtenkrachten dan de zwaartekracht -magnetische krachten, statische elektriciteit- werken helemaal niet zo.
2/20 #equivalentieprincipe
Hoe zwaarder een voorwerp, hoe harder zwaartekracht trekt. Dat is de zware massa. Maar ook: hoe zwaarder een voorwerp, hoe trager het op gang komt, dat is de trage massa. #equivalentieprincipe
