Topic 1: norms, rules, and principles derived from existing international legal and other normative frameworks
#Russia continues to insist that NGOs are not permitted to make statements during the formal session.
#Canada respectfully disagrees with Russia. The matter is closed. The Chair has ruled and will not change established UN practice.

"As we tell kids in Canada, sometimes, you get what you get, and you don't get upset. It's time to move on."

US addresses space to Earth threats, and highlights what Dmitri Stefanovich referenced this morning: the greatest threat was nuclear weapons in space, which is why the Soviets and US agreed to prohibit them in art IV #OST.
Therefore, US does not consider space-based weapons to be a serious threat today. Refers to the excellent work of @LauraEGrego and @bleddb to underscore why space based missile defence is not feasible, and reiterates US is not, never has, developed this non-starter
This is why we need to focus on behaviours and not capabilities. #SpaceThreatsOEWG. We should not be afraid of making incremental progress, especially if they can make practical and pragmatic difference to space security.

We can't say goodbye to #AfricanPenguins forever. We just can't. #NotOnOurWatch

Will you add your voice to help?

My friend Dean wrote, "We'd love to help, but how?"

Follow this thread. I'll tell you how. But don't wait. We have less than 8 hours left to send 1 email. 🧵🐧🧵
The South African government has proposed a plan aimed at protecting the African Penguins found only in South Africa and Namibia. They are good protections. And we need more.

1st. this thread is for EVERYONE. Anyone can email comments about protecting the #AfricanPenguins.
You do NOT have to be South African to express your gratitude for the proposed plan, and you do NOT have to be in South Africa to ask the government local to the situation for more action to protect #AfricanPenguins. You just have to be good people. Or even bad people.

@greenprofgreen @nytimes Dear @greenprofgreen, everyone is entitled to their #opinion, but it’s unfortunate that your op-ed contains several errors about #spacelaw, and also misinterprets the character, intent and context of the #ArtemisAccords. @nytopinion
@greenprofgreen @nytimes @nytopinion To start, the #OST does *not* "designate space as the province of all mankind". Instead, its use & exploration of outer space shall be the province of mankind. Not the same thing.
@greenprofgreen @nytimes @nytopinion More serious is the mistake that #OST "codified norms of the common heritage of mankind". The #OST does NOT contain the #CHM principle! The Moon Agreement does, which is why no space faring nation proceeded to sign it, as they misunderstand this concept.

Open Letter to any @OntarioPCParty MPPs who still values small "c" conservative principles.

In early 2020, we admittedly did not know as much about SARS-CoV-2 as we do now.

Overzealous precautions in the initial period were excusable - in the short-term.

We quickly learned that COVID-19, unlike Influenza, spared children.

Children & youth have EXTREMELY low to no relative risk...again, unlike Influenza.

We quickly debunked the theory that children were "super-spreaders".

We also quickly realized that #lockdowns, school closures, social isolation, & #maskmandates have an EXTREMELY negative affect on children & youth with respect to their mental health, physical health, social development, delayed/impaired social milestones, education, etc.

1000's of variants have been waxing & waning in North America for MANY, MANY months.
This is normal & EXPECTED in error-prone RNA replication.
...BUT, BUT BUT!!! It is MUCH more academically fascinating than clinically significant.
Too bad the #OST hasn't figured that out!

Wie steht es 30 Jahre nach der #Wiedervereinigung um die #DeutscheEinheit? Die neue #Studie von pollytix und @BertelsmannSt|iftung zeigt: Nach drei Jahrzehnten haben Deutsche in #Ost und #West noch sehr unterschiedliche Perspektiven auf das vereinte #Deutschland #Thread (1/11) Image
Nicht nur, dass man den Eindruck hat, es mache nach wie vor einen Unterschied, ob man aus West- oder #Ostdeutschland kommt: Es halten sich bis heute auch zwei unterschiedliche #Narrative zur #Wiedervereinigung: (2/11)
Für Westdeutsche ging das Leben nach der Wiedervereinigung weiter wie zuvor. Sie haben den Eindruck, dass die Wiedervereinigung von Westdeutschland bezahlt wurde. Trotz realer ökonomischer Unterschiede halten sie die Wiedervereinigung für eine #Erfolgsstory ohne Verlierer. (3/11) Image

Wir wünschen euch einen feierlichen #TagDerDeutschenEinheit. 🎈

Diesen Sommer radelte Fotografin Mina Esfandiari 1288km (!) am #Radweg #DeutscheEinheit. 📸

Ihre wunderbare Idee: Persönliche Geschichten zum Mauerfall & zur Deutschen Einheit zu finden und zu erzählen. 👇 Image
"Wie weit ist Deutschland seitdem zusammen gewachsen? Sind wir ein Volk?"

Mit diesen Fragen im Gepäck radelte Mina von #West nach #Ost - von #Bonn nach #Berlin. Sie sammelte in ihrem Foto-Essay persönliche Geschichten, Stimmungen und Porträts.

#TagderDeutschenEinheit Image
"Wo steht Deutschland heute? Was eint uns? Was teilt uns?"

Mina hat Antworten gefunden - in Bildern und in Gesprächen mit Menschen.

Wir freuen uns auf ihre Fotoausstellung & den Podcast. #DankeMina 🌍
