It is time for one long #Coronavirus update. I have been resisting doing this as (1) I do not want to add to the hysteria & the panic & (2) I don't believe in doomsday predictions. Moreover, things have been moving so fast, who knows what's what. BUT it's time for real talk...
Overall, #Coronavirus (the outbreak of #COVID19) is REAL. The effects on your daily life from the fallout will be REAL. The impact society, economics, & politics in 2020 will be severe & REAL. None of this is Fake News. None of this should be downplayed. (2/
People who are trying to silence REAL discussion are doing a disservice to the public interest. This is a 9/11 & 2008 level event in terms of its impact on domestic & international dynamics. This thread is not about creating panic but encouraging a smarter response. (3/

[THREAD] China Coronavirus Outbreak
A deadly virus is spreading from Asia, affecting hundreds of people and resulting in dozens of deaths, in what may become a gloabal health epidemic. This thread contains news about the outbreak.
#Coronavirus #WuhanOutbreak #ChinaVirus #WarWatch
On Dec 30, 2019, Chinese authorities confirmed cases of pneumonia of unknown cause in Wuhan, Hubei Province. A team of national experts was sent to carry out detection tests. Patients at a local seafood market were put in quarantine.
#Coronavirus #WuhanOutbreak #ChinaVirus
Liu Youning, a professor of epidemiology and respiratory medicine, told the Global Times that the #coronavirus found in #Wuhan appears to be far less serious than the virus that caused the severe acute respiratory syndrome (#SARS) or the Middle East respiratory syndrome (#MERS).

All gold on Earth formed billions of years ago in stars that over-heated and blew up. Gold formed in the heat of the explosions and then floated around space. As rock, dust and other materials came together to form #Earth, #gold was distributed around the planet.
#nspoli #cbpoli Image
400 million years ago #NorthAfrica and #NorthAmerica started colliding. Sub-sea sediments were squished between the tectonic plates, upthrusted and folded as they turned into rock.
#nspoli #cbpoli #NovaScotia #NS #cb #capebreton Image
This allowed fluid to leach #gold from rock deep underground and flow into cracks in rock closer to surface, forming veins of #quartz and gold as the fluid eventually cooled and hardened.
This is how most #NovaScotia gold deposits formed.

This is the anticline at the #MooseRiver #gold mine. It was formed by the collision of #NorthAmerica and #NorthAfrica 325 million years ago. Layers of horizontal sedimentary rock were crumpled into #anticlines (domes) and #synclines (troughs) - a series of rock waves.
#nspoli #NS ImageImageImage
The #Anticline hosts the Touquoy #gold deposit. Its domes trapped melted, gold-containing rock as it rose from deep in #earth's crust. It flowed into fractures in the rock, creating quartz veins with gold. There are also tiny disseminated particles of gold throughout.
#nspoli #NS ImageImage
The #MooseRiver #gold mine is the first in a series of proposed gold #mines along the #EasternShore. About 300 people work there and the other mines would create 100s more jobs for #NovaScotians.
#Mining employs 5500 in #NS and is the highest-paying #resource industry.

In the 1800s, #NovaScotia sold the best #grindstones in #NorthAmerica! A #grindstone is a round stone, usually #sandstone, used for sharpening tools. #LowerCove in #Cumberland County was the main area where the #stones were extracted, shaped and exported from.
#nspoli #NS #mining ImageImage
The biggest company was #Atlantic #Grindstone which operated from 1831 to the early 1900s in #LowerCove because it had excellent quality #sandstone and access to #tidewater for exporting. Access to tidewater is still a key advantage for #NovaScotia #mining companies.
#nspoli #NS Image
Prior to the 1800s, #Acadians produced #grindstones from #LowerCove and other sites on #ChignectoBay for domestic use. The #British army used grindstones from #LowerCove to sharpen their weapons in the #Warof1812.

STARTING NOW: @ACLatAm's @jmarczak hosts @Antonio_OrtizM, @bakermckenzie's Peter McKay & @sabrod123 for a discussion of the #USMCA's finalization, and what the deal means for #NorthAmerica commerce. Access the dial-in details here ➡️ atlanticcouncil.org/event/rapid-re… Image
@jmarczak @Antonio_OrtizM @bakermckenzie @sabrod123 @AtlanticCouncil @mfperezcr The #USMCA will bring a long-awaited level of certainty and stability to North American commerce at a time of global trade uncertainty and hyper political polarization, notes @jmarczak #ACMexico.
@jmarczak @Antonio_OrtizM @bakermckenzie @sabrod123 @AtlanticCouncil @mfperezcr What are the next steps in the #US regarding #USMCA ratification? The intention for House Democrats right now is to have a vote as soon as next week, but there are some technical questions of whether or not that's possible, says @sabrod123 #ACMexico

Excited to see the #DowntonAbbeyMovie? Here's the history of that amazing building...which is actually #HighclereCastle in #England but we will call it by the name we all know and love: #DowntonAbbey!

#nspoli #DowntonAbbeyFilm #NovaScotia #NS #builtheritage @DowntonAbbey Image
@DowntonAbbey #DowntonAbbey's land was granted to the Church in 749 and held by it for 800 years. A bishop's home (a palace, really) was built in the 1300s. The land was taken from the church in 1551 during the #ProtestantReformation and it’s been owned by several families since.
#nspoli #NS Image
@DowntonAbbey The bishop’s palace at the site of #DowntonAbbey was rebuilt in 1679 as a #brick manor house (the drawing below). Some of the brick can still be seen at the building’s rear. In the 1700s, formal gardens and paths were built.

Last Monday I referred in an excessively colloquial way, which I regret, to the almost annihilation of Native Americans in present-day US by the colonizers. This was done in the context of explaining that setting up a federal union in #NorthAmerica was easier than in #Europe(1/3)
because, apart from sharing the same language, the original colonies had not fought bloody wars among themselves for centuries, which is what happened in the Old World. Instead, they engaged in the killing of the original inhabitants of North America. (2/3)
This was indeed done in large numbers and should not be belittled. All my respect and sympathy to the Native American community. (3/3)

... and a public which asks their representatives to value #evidence will be the strongest driver of long-term #scienceadvice mechanisms.

Jeff Reading @SPH_Iloilo adds long-term funding to #scienceadvice mechanisms would also be an important step if we want long-term thinking
The workshop starts now ➡️ what are top 3 critical issues or structural themes in #Scienceadvice that an @INGSciAdvice presence in North America could address? #INGSA_NA18
And we're back after the interactive workshop, now discussing how to leverage the @INGSciAdvice network in #NorthAmerica context #INGSA_NA18, and what we can learn from other chapters
