Notwithstanding #Olympics2021 or perhaps because of it, in relation to the clear breach of the solemn tradition of the Olympics Truce, the TPLF invasion of Ethiopia ought to be taken before the UNSC immediately.
This is a matter that has already been discussed by the UNSC as a humanitarian crisis. It is now rapidly escalating out of control as a security crisis. International news cover of the #Olympics2021 is being used by the aggressor, TPLF for its military offensive.
A UN @WFP humanitarian convoy has been attacked, and Ethiopia's unilateral ceasefire, entered into at the request of the IC, (UN, G7, EU and US), has been ignored. Ethiopian people, in isolated communities, face consequential threats from the TPLF on multiple fronts.

A global weather surveillance thread.

We begin in the West Pacific where Typhoon #INFA is now over China bringing rain to 100s of millions.
Here's a closeup of #INFA over the past 12 hours rain bands have now reached the already flooded Henan province.
Some early coverage of the impact here:…

Including more harrowing video of flooding.

Interviewed Anna Kiesenhofer back in 2016. A few notes:
-She was a runner whose training was running through meadows between rural towns in Austria
-The Cambridge graduate was dead last in the British university (BUCS) 10 time-trial in 2012, with 34:25. Anything is possible
-She would borrow cycling equipment, take trains around Europe and rely on the generosity of strangers to do sportives. She beat all but 11 men in the Gran Fondo Ventoux
-She taught herself training with Allen and Coggan's 'Training and Racing with a Power Meter'
-Clear parallels to Emma Pooley: Kiesenhofer was a mathematics Cambridge masters student who picked up cycle racing in earnest due to stubborn running injuries.
-Despite not liking bunch racing, won Copa España in 2016 after doing her PhD at Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya

[Thread] - 1) Good evening sports fans! Ready for the ultimate hacked verified Twitter accounts thread? Over the past two years, I have kept tabs on around 70 verified accounts that were hacked by Arabic language operators for various reasons. The victims #disinformation
2 / range from 30 international athletes, to other public figures such as deceased US Senator Debbie Smith. The accounts have been used for various purposes, from scams to state propaganda. Some of the accounts are still active, while many have been suspended - read on for more!
3/ First up, Senator Debbie Smith. Smith, who served as a member of the Nevada Senate, sadly passed away in 2016 after battling with a brain tumour. Her Twitter account was hacked by an Arabic-speaking account, which changed it's handle to
@0YY0k - and was eventually suspended

A stadium at max capacity,
Rafters shake from the voracity,
Challengers step on the floor,
The crowd goes silent, they're not adored,
Their torch is of ignorance and ire,
Their flame a raging dumpster fire,
Behold their lack of common sense,
The Anti-Vax Games have commenced,
All year competitors will train,
To hone a craft that's inhumane,
They've perfected their disdain for facts,
And belligerent childish attacks,
"Standing on guard", self proclaimed heroes,
Mentally masturbating egos,
Their selfishness on full display,
The main events are underway,
Hypocrisy high jump starts the night,
As they try to elevate THEIR rights,
A single bell ring of defiance,
As they go toe to toe with science,

A brief pictorial thread of parts of the northern hemisphere where extreme or unusual weather phenomena are underway.

Starting with #eastasia #infa & #3rdStorm which seems to have initiated formation. This is the storm which will crash #Olympics2021, shortly after the opening.
The 1st animation is 120 hours. This version goes for 11 days longer. As on #infa’s path beyond 120 hours, what happens beyond July 26th is pretty uncertain. #infa is also continuously not behaving as expected, totes normal for a heat engine of this magnitude.
Heading west a few thousand miles the lingering impact of the #ArabianMomsoonBurst is set to continue for some time bringing thunderstorms to the Arabian peninsula on a daily basis. See @Arab_Storms for video reports.

#INFA and a widening gyre.

July 22nd #Japan #Olympics2021 weather update, rain, wind, rain and more rain. This is not looking at all ok.

TL/DR: the model forecasts for East Asia have changed. And gotten significantly worse.
Here's a high resolution satellite image of Typhoon #INFA which is continuing to defy all predictions.

But the potential impacts of this storm both for those in its path and for the wider region are getting steadily worse.
Yesterday's thread can be found here >>

TL/DR the only hope at this point is that the models can't compute this right, and what they say will happen doesn't.

It's now time for prayer, and for Japan to prepare for widespread catastrophic rainfall.

Vamos abrir a thread 🧵

Às 5h tem Brasil 🇧🇷 x 🇨🇳 China, pela rodada inaugural do torneio de futebol feminino.

Na abertura dos Jogos do Rio 2016, Brasil e China jogaram no Engenhão. A Seleção venceu por 3 a 0, com gols de Mônica, Andressa Alves e Cristiane. (📸 CBF)

O histórico de Brasil 🇧🇷 em estreias olímpicas:

A Seleção nunca foi derrotada em uma estreia olímpica. Em seis jogos, são quatro vitórias e dois empates, com 13 gols marcados e apenas dois sofridos.

Hino brasileiro toca pela primeira vez em Tóquio.

Haaaaaja coração, amigos.

Que possamos ouvir muitas e muitas vezes

Começa o futebol feminino nos Jogos Olímpicos de Tóquio.

A primeira partida do dia coloca frente a frente:

Grã Bretanha 🇬🇧 x 🇨🇱 Chile

🏟 Arena Sapporo
▶️ Grupo E

Muito respeito às jogadoras de Grã Bretanha 🇬🇧 e Chile 🇨🇱 , que se ajoelharam antes de a bola rolar em Sapporo. Uma manifestação contra o racismo dentro de uma Olimpíada é sempre algo histórico.

E tem gol na Olimpíada. O primeiro do torneio de futebol feminino.

Grã Bretanha 🇬🇧 1 x 0 🇨🇱 Chile

Ellen White, que joga no Manchester City, abre o placar aos 18 minutos após aproveitar escorada de Hemp.

Today's #FabianPH #INFA, #Olympics, #Olympics2021 disruption update thread.

See yesterday's thread below.

TL/DR: There is a significant typhoon/extreme rainfall threat to Japan in the opening days of the Olympics.
Here's a view of the two storms, #FabianPH / #INFA whose interaction is forecast to produce a 3rd storm in 4 days time which was forecast yesterday to arrive in Tokyo two days after the Olympics opening.

#Olympics, #Olympics2021
In the latest GFS 1hourly simulation model the solution remains the same as of today. A large typhoon like low (in terms of water content) will make landfall in Japan and stay over the country for some time bringing torrential rains during #Olympics2021
