New from me: “How to Fight the New Domestic Terrorism” thanks to ⁦@WSJ⁩ giving me opportunity flush out some of the truncated social media discussions from this week wsj.com/articles/how-t…
Few additional notes related to article: 1- I’m not for restarting the Obama era CVE programs for today. I’ve been accused of this occasionally this week, for my thought on last decades strategy see fpri.org/article/2012/1…
2- We can selectively pick successful approaches from last 2 decades. @MoonshotCVE with @RossFrenett is one I’d like to see further ramped up for white supremacist mitigation

Today is possibly .@theresa_may's last day as PM, if .@BorisJohnson can command a majority (which is in some doubt...)

So it's a great opportunity to look back at some of the *highlights* of Mrs May's premiership in memes👇
13 JUL 2016: May was appointed as PM and named her Cabinet shortly thereafter, surprising many by giving 3 of the top #Brexit-related jobs to arch-brexiters Boris Johnson, David Davis & Liam Fox. Sheer folly, or genius in making them own what they'd sold? Sadly, the former😢
/1.
5 OCT 2016: With such a narrow result, the country could be forgiven for expecting May to propose a consensual solution, as Norway PM Erna Solberg had done in a similar situation. Most Remainers would've accepted #Norway.

May's #CitizensOfNowhere speech crushed all hope.

#Russia says 14 dead in deep-sea fire in its waters aboard "research submarine."
#Russia media reports now identifying the vessel as the nuclear-powered Losharik. rbc.ru/society/02/07/…
Describing the Losharik as a 'research vessel' is a bit disingenuous. It is reputed to be the most silent and hard-to-detect submarine in the navy of #Russia -- able to dive to a depth of 6,000 meters and tap or cut telecom cables on the ocean floor.

World Cup Semi-Final 2015, i#Montreal pic ⁦@rerutled
World Cup 2019 kicks off in 30 minutes!
#FWWC
#FRAKOR about kicksoff for FIFA 8th Women’s World. I’ll be tweeting matches & sharing reax. #France, the host, considered a strong contender. In this group also are #Nigeria and #Norway. Big shout out to my sisters from Naija, the Super Falcons, one of 3 African teams in #FWWC
Saw #FRA play in the quarter final in 2015 World Cup - they look stronger this time around, buoyed I’m sure by home crowd. #FRAKOR

As #espionage & #Eurovision coincide, here's #Albania the 1st finalist in this #history thread.
(Also for my #Australia readers seeking relief from #ausvotes as you start your Saturday, it's impressive you convinced them your continent counts 😎)
Next: #Азербайджан #Евровизија
For #Eurovision #Азербайджан and #Spying studies, here's an article from @warisboring about Azeri #aviation being well-placed to use my #Soviet favourite (Foxbat) to work #intelligence against my #USAF (Blackbird).
Zoom zoom 😎💕

Next up for #Eurovision finalists with an #espionage twist is #Denmark, whose #Spying #Police (PET) scored a serious scoop in turning Colonel Oleg Gordievsky, the #Russian rezident (lead KGB controller), which later inspired actual #JamesBond plot points:

A little thread, which I may come back to, for all those #technophobes who blame rise in #suicide on #socialmedia.

First: legit, what rise?
Second: The actual experts do not agree with you, and your fear-mongering is likely causing more harm than good.
cf. Thomas, K, and Gunnell, D. (2010). Suicide in England and Wales 1861–2007: a time-trends analysis. International Journal of Epidemiology, Volume 39, Issue 6, December 2010, Pages 1464–1475.
So, first the data, from #UK (above) and elsewhere (below).

Clearly if this epidemic was *caused* by a *single* factor it would permeate all societies with social media.

0/ 'Twas very much 'M&A Mondays' in the #crypto/#blockchain space, with not one, not two, but *three* announcements revealing the coming together of two previously discrete projects.

A heap of other developments took place on Monday, too, so let's get into it, shall we?
1/ 🐱 @Efolioapp - a P2P marketplace to buy and sell #crypto tokens - unveiled its solution that brings English auctions (as distinct from Dutch auctions) to @0xProject [ $ZRX ]!

Bid for NFTs with either an #ERC20- and #ERC721-compliant token. Neat! medium.com/@emoonmarket/0…
2/ 📣 Per @Cheddar, Facebook hired most of the @Chainspace_io team; its first major 'acqui-hire’ in the #crypto space.

Who is Chainspace? A #blockchain startup self-described as "a planetary scale smart contracts platform." cheddar.com/videos/faceboo…

Assad blocks access to Damascus for EU envoys?

EU diplomats were allowed to go in & out without ever visiting the Foreign Ministry as they adhered with guidelines given to them by their capitals to shun contacts with Syrian Govt.

well, that’s no more zawya.com/mena/en/story/…
The January change announced by Damascus now requires diplomats to get a single entry visa for every visit. There will be and no more multi-entry annual visa for those who don’t have a residency in #Syria
#Norway has been the bright exception. Its diplomats have had a residency and they are have been spending long periods of time in Damascus every month while meeting with multiple parties

A #NewYearsEve #thread

On 🇪🇺 & 🇬🇧 & 🇳🇴 & 🦄🦄🦄

May 2019 bring much 🎂 to have & eat!

Due thanks @SebDance for inspiration
#HappyNewYear2019
Some clever 🇬🇧 spin doctors have added a ➕ to 🇳🇴

'#NorwayPlus'
assumedly to make it more alluring?

@USverdrup, Director at Norwegian Institute of International Affairs @NUPInytt noted to the 🇳🇴 @Aftenposten daily:
“If you stand at the edge
you no longer seek the best solution”
Please consider this:

Did any Central & Eastern European country joining 🇪🇺 2004
1st knock @EFTAsecretariat's door
as their preferred ‘solution’ for #SingleMarket access?

#EFTA & the #EEA Agreement it administers
= a barren 🏜️ for #democracy

A truly grey Brussels #bureaucracy.

I recently had the chance to visit one of the most innovative #Bitcoin mining operations in #Norway

Conclusion: Bitcoin mining is necessary, not wasteful, and even superior to the alternatives.

Read everything here and in this thread👇

theepochtimes.com/bitcoin-mining…
So far most #Bitcoin mining is done in #China, with subsidized electricity and coal power, here: A power plant in Xiangshawan Desert in Ordos of Inner Mongolia
. @NorthernBitcoin is one company who goes to where the cheap renewable energy is, in this case #Hydropower in Norway at a plant near Sandane
