1/ My starting point for #SupremeCourt jurisprudence since 2000 is a telling quote from Joel Klein's "The Natural" in which a Republican Senator concedes to Clinton that Republicans don't believe in government, but they love power.
2/2000: #BushvGore, the Supreme Court stays the Florida recount with any opinion justifying the stay and then reverses the Fla. Supreme Court recount order as violating the Equal Protection Clause in a per curiam opinion that can't be cited as precedent.
3/2002: President Bush signed the #McCainFeingold campaign finance reform law, which foolishly included a restriction on the use of independent expenditures for commercials 60 days before an election.

I did some more calculations regarding #power supply in #France. Unfortually, my initial estimation turned out too optimistic. If #EDF does not get at least 15GW of #nuclear back to the grid, we are very likely to see forceful disconnections or rolling #blackout|s this winter
As usual, during Winter the situation in France is always narrow. On the 6th of January at 8am, even 9.2GW of #gas was insufficient, requiring 9,4GW of imports to manage 84.4GW of load. This was when France had about 51GW of nuclear available.
CW 2/2022 was similar
Right now we are sitting on just ~28GW. That's 23GW missing!

The highest import I found was 13,5GW (highest export: 17,7GW).

Given that the avg. import on these days was ~5GW, less than 39GW avail. nuclear capacity would very likely make a 84GW scenario impossible to handle!

What I find as interesting about this chart as its contents is the label at the top: "#LIBERAL WOMEN"

Labour may in part* be more 'liberal' than the current Conservative party, but it is not a Liberal party...

*It still has its more authoritarian, "law'n'order!" tendencies. Image
...indeed, the chart itself 👇 suggests that "the women of Wakefield" support the Liberal Democrats LESS than the men.

This rather American(?) conflation of "left" and "liberal" in both language and assumption is a form of #CategoryError - in large part due to the insistence... Image
...on the all-too #binary 'left/right' framing that fails to encompass many nuances within politics.

That UK-level choices prefer only two 'parties of Government' does not entirely reflect either sentiment or ground reality, as the local government layer in England indicates... Image

In Session 2, we focused on networks in #cultural and #creative industries: Building on the relations between UK #theatre workers, @ManfredideBern1 from @KingsCollegeLon showed the process of #CoProduction of #networks in space and time. (1/4)
Dominic Power analysed rural #female #artists’ work and #creativity in #Sweden. He found out that being in the #periphery does not automatically mean #isolation from the center or lesser #creative possibilities: Their networks go far beyond a classic #CorePeriphery model. (2/4)
Alice Bobée elaborated on the entanglement between #BusinessSchools’ cultural economic #geography and cities’ reputation: Facing reduced public #funding, #French business schools have set up campus in European cities, dissociationg themselves from their #national origins. (3/4)

Want to thank @Bindestriche for the retweet. Inspired the need to vent my thoughts in this🧵

Of the increasing number of initiatives setting out in recent years to challenge heteronormativity in education, the 2006-2009 No Outsiders project has arguably been one of the #MostInfluential
Conducted across 15 primary schools in England, #No Outsiders
Conducted across 15 primary schools in England, No Outsiders was an action research project that sought to disrupt heteronormativity through critical pedagogy, gaining widespread academic and media attention in the process
In spite of its prominence, though, there has been a lack of research exploring the ways in which #children have incorporated this work into their everyday understandings and doings of #gender and #sexuality.

Follow this 🧵 as we provide live coverage of this event all day...
"For those of you who think behavior change can prevent #ClimateChange...behavior WILL change when climate changes. Shutdowns from the pandemic resulted in a reduction of #C02 emissions of about 7.5%."

this Canadian political chart below illustrates the true reality of political spectrum - -
it is the Liberals who are the legitimate Political Right, Republicans are closer to Socialists, the legitimate Political Left: Image
in the American political spectrum, the Republican Party illegitimately hijacked the Political Right away from Liberals --

the American Right in its true nature is Socialist-Nationalist with its purification-repression policies;

the American Liberals are the True Right;
why did American Socialist-Nationalist Republicans hijack the political Right away from Liberals?

because the political spectrum aligns itself with the evolutionary spectrum:

•Liberals: Empathic Human: 4%
•Democrats: Social Human: 48%
•Republicans: Predatory Human: 48%

Excelentes preguntas @alexbrizuelamx

Siendo preguntas que nadie en el sector energético serio, se han planteado para comunicar.

¿Quiénes ganan con la aprobación de la #ReformaElectica ?

Para ello, abro 🧵👇🏽
Primero, ¿quiénes son los grandes ganadores de la #ReformaElectrica?

1. Es el @GobiernoMX pues, al eliminar todos los reguladores como la @CRE_Mexico y @CNH_MX, y controladores como @CenaceMexico y @CENAGAS_mx se tendría un control político ABSOLUTO.…
En este sentido, como ya se ha referido por voces y referentes, es el Estado Mexicano quién controlará la industria eléctrica.

Sin embargo, estará a Merced de las ideologías de quien ocupe el cargo.

Finally, the #GoldacreReview is published! (During Parliamentary Easter holidays, mid-ping-pong on the #HealthAndCareBill...)

It's 221 pages - each PDF page is a double page spread - so this could be a lo-o-o-ong [Thread].

This is the National Geographic Picture of The Year. The black images are shadows of zebras. Zoom in and you will see the actual zebras.

If you are someone in a position of #power, please recognize that your shadow looms larger than you think.
#Thread Image
As a #leader, everything you say (and don't say) and do (and don't do) is magnified- maybe even disproportionately. You cast a large shadow and take up more space in others' minds than you think.

To you, you're the zebra. To others, you're the shadow.
Doing the work to develop #selfawareness can help you better understand and mitigate the unintended impact you may have on others just by being in a position of power.

🧵It's #InternationalWomensDay and given the uptick in media coverage of #digitalsleuths: Let’s talk about representation in open source research!

When we use open sources to report on war, whose voices, experiences are we amplifying?

#Russia #Ukraine #OSINT #OSINTUkraine
Like most groups, @amnesty is publishing analysis partly based on open sources from #twitter as well as Telegram, Facebook, VKontakte, etc. For us the focus has is on possible war crimes.

E.g. this thread by the Crisis Evidence Lab ↓
Social media is a critical source (great!) but it privileges certain types of violence. Violence that is less spectacular e.g. dehydration, starvation, lack of access to medical supplies and electricity, or racism.
