1/ Dear all, before everyone freaks out complete re the #supply #disruption of #natural #gas to #poland and #bulgaria which was initiated by #gazprom yesterday, i thought i'd make a little explanatory thread.
2/ first, consider poland. it exports about 10 bn m3 annually from russia. Image
3/ however, natural gas is not so important for its primary energy supply. poland still heavily depends on #coal, in particular for its electrical energy production. Image

Nobody loves this country 🇳🇬🇳🇬🇳🇬 more than I do

For 12 good years this stadium was dilapidated, for 12 good years we have witnessed different Administrations

It costs $1 million to rehabilitate this stadium. NFF president is from the South South, Super Eagles coach is from
the South South but the blame goes to Buhari who didn't score goals.

In the coming days billions of naira will be allocated for the renovation and repairs of this stadium, this are public funds which will be meant for something else.

Notwithstanding FIFA sanctions to
Nigeria for turning match violent, this sanctions will cost money Nigeria might also face Ban from featuring in an international matches for some years if not appealed

And if appealed it will still cost more money, very soon Buhari will vacate his office and we have a Nigeria

The #Zapatista tour of #Ireland, a long aul’ thread (but pix and vids!) to wrap up

In 1994 indigenous peasants in the mountains of SE Mexico rose up against #neoliberal capitalism, their latest struggle in 500 years of resisting colonialism…

#LaGiraZapatistaVa #EZLN Zapatista women at La Realidad
If you need a backgrounder, here's Mick McCaughan, ex-Latin American correspondent for the Irish Times and Guardian introducing why the #Zapatistas matter:

27 years later, they hold liberated territory the size of Munster –

governing themselves from below

with a powerful #womxn’s movement

practicing #AgroEcology

and with their own culture, education system, community media...

I had a private audience with @PremierScottMoe, Don Morgan (@SaskMLA), and other members of the #SaskParty caucus some years ago. I was advocating for increased supports in the #north for ppl w/ intellectual disabilities.
Jurisdictional barriers are a *huge* roadblock in the north w/ a pop. of ~80% FN (on-reserve/off-reserve, fed/prov hot potato). I talked about the legacy of the residential school system, that FN families didn't want to send loved ones away for care.
I told them that some mothers in the north, so desperate for critical supports for their children, would lie and tell social workers they had consumed alcohol during pregnancy. You see, there are in- school supports for FASD, but not for autism & other complex diagnoses.

It's time to do an honest review!
Historians will write and speak on the fall of #Kabul from here on, and this topic will feed conference sponsors and lecture circuit speakers around the world.
Had George Bush stayed away from Iraq, the situation today could have been different?
Saddam Hussein, a bloody tyrant that he was, at least kept the strategic balance of power in check from a sectarian perspective in the Middle East.
His removal unleashed the great schism between the rival school of thought, but, also shifted the focus away from #Afghanistan.
Iraq is reeling from the effects of the war that Blair and Bush launched based on fabricated grounds.
No WoMDs were found inside Iraq!
This was part of the greater #Neoconservative Plan based in Washington to weaken the Arab States, which could offer resistance to Israel.

There is a huge amount of false and misleading information about #HS2 on social media. Below is a myth buster thread which corrects some of the most repeated misconceptions about the project…
Myth 1: ‘HS2 only saves 20 minutes to #Birmingham’. FACT: #HS2 services will call at 25 stations in England and Scotland connecting 30 million people. It also frees up space on the existing network for more frequent stopping local services benefiting those who may never use HS2.
HS2’s budget is spread over 30 years and evens out at less than the annual roads budget. We will support 30,000 jobs at least 2,000 of which will be apprenticeships. The arrival of #HS2 is spearheading economic growth and is expected to create nearly 500,000 jobs around stations.

“HS2 is just 20 minutes quicker to #Birmingham” is a well-trodden myth. #HS2 will transform the UK with the 3Cs: More CAPACITY across the country’s #rail network. A low CARBON #transport network. Better CONNECTIVITY in the #Midlands and #North. Image
Capacity: #HS2 will add vital capacity to our overcrowded #rail network by placing long distance services on their own pair of tracks. This will create thousands of extra seats and space for more local, commuter and #freight services on the existing #railway. Image
Carbon: #Rail is the low carbon option for long distance travel, with #HS2 taking cars and lorries off the road. HS2 emits 17 times less carbon than the equivalent domestic flight and 7 times less carbon than the equivalent car journey.

Things are changing in the true #North!
Great profile of @DehennaDavison our young aspirational @Conservatives candidate in #BishopAuckland
google.co.uk/amp/s/www.tele…
- 4 reasons why Labour could lose this seat:
- great work by @DehennaDavison @C_F_Adams + cllrs over many yrs of campaigning
- decades of neglect/broken promises from Labour locally/nationally
- a genuinely poor Labour MP
+ #aspiration from a traditional #NE community for more
If you want to help @DehennaDavison - as the Hexham team did in 2017 for @C_F_Adams - to reduce a massive #BishopAuckland majority down to 502 then contact D (and be prepared for all weathers)
Enjoy the show ⬇️💦💦💦

After more of 5 years of #restoration reopens the Sala delle Asse in the #Sforza Castle. The largest painting ever made by #LeonardodaVinci is back. This amazing work of art shows the passion for nature and landscape of the Tuscan master. #thread 1) milanoarte.net/en/portfolio/m…
@TheBlogArtPost @Svagaia @secolourbano @viaggevolmente @turismomilano @LombardiaSforza @StPallavicino @visit_milano @FondaPoliMi @VentoPolimi Portions of the original preparatory drawing made by #DaVinci have been revealed for the very first time. Here a beautiful landscape that can be easily recognized as #Lombardy landscape. Notice the bell tower with the spire, so typical of Lombard architecture of the 1400s. 2)
