#Thread 1/ Today's a day when I think a lot of people are going to be discussing and critiquing #journalism Since I've been teaching the subject for quite some time now, here's some things I tell my students about their relationships to public officials.
2/ The first rule of #journalism, even in the @spj_tweets code of ethics, is to "seek truth and report it." Sources of truth don't always want it shared. Everyone wants to look good, and when people have chosen to do bad things, they don't want you to expose them.
3/ A side #ProTip for newsmakers: The best way to avoid unfavorable coverage is to not do bad things. It's not 100%, but it works a lot better than other shenanigans you try.

A recently mobilized toddler is like a free home penetration test.
Like any enterprise penetration test, the (ahem) “stakeholders” (me) might say: “How long has that been there? Whose is it? Did you know we had that there? Who’s responsible for that?”

First rule of security: asset inventory.
Followed up with: “Well, you’re not supposed to do that” and “You’re not following the rules.”

Since y’all are here for it here’s another spoiler alert🚨: Bernie isn’t running to be POTUS, he’s running to shit on all the *real* Democrats who are running to be POTUS so that by the time 11/2020 rolls around you hate/distrust all of them & stay home or vote 3rd party instead.
Bernie’s polling is atrocious and he knows it, so don’t think for one second that he’s jumping into this race with intentions of becoming the nominee of a party he STILL refuses to fucking join. He’s only here to throw premeditated shit at the walls, just like he was in 2016.

With another caravan en route @SpeakerPelosi chooses to peddle a false story about one woman and her insulin, she fails to mention men and women of our incredible Border Patrol are working without pay because they need us to #BuildTheWall #PelosiShutdown ❤️🇺🇸 @DHSgov
Translation of photo above notes that it’s 1,700 migrants with “several children” but chances are every photograph you’ll see will be of those children. #BuildTheWall
Few more found using Spanish hashtags and the translation function. #protip

Don’t mind me, I’m just RTing years old news about Trump making it painfully clear he’s a Russian asset since folk are pretending they didn’t know until NYT finally told them 3 years too late. 🙄
As always shout out to our rightful president Hillary Clinton because she literally spelled it out for y’all over and over again, but NO you were too busy obsessing about her stupid fucking emails, @nytimes. Apologize for your willful negligence now.
Circa May 2017. How are you feigning shock that Trump was under FBI investigation when he’s literally been obstructing it since the day he was sworn in by *his own admission*? Cease and desist with your willful amnesia and CYA.

Au-delà de la vanne, j'aimerais faire acte de salubrité publique avec un #thread répondant à Monsieur Nicolle sur quelques-uns de ses propos.
Alors ça risque d'être long, la vidéo frôle 9mn, et je promets pas de tout ratisser tant il y a à dire. #GiletsJaunes #MaximeNicolle
Parce qu'il part quand même sur beaucoup de thématiques très diverses, et (SPOILER) il raconte quand même pas mal d'inepties. Pour rester poli. Pis j'aime bien ce mot, "ineptie".
J'ai pas la science infuse, donc n'hésitez pas à compléter.
Bon, c'est parti. Hésitez pas à vous servir un verre.

Pis gardez la bouteille à portée. Y en aura besoin.

#HotTip for all! Be your own fact checker, use link below, think of it as the google of gov docs. You type what you’re looking for into the search bar and dig in, it populates court docs, archives, data and all past press releases from the Hill.
#ProTip 🧠 If you know exactly what you’re looking for, out it in quotes. Some of the info is repetitive but if you’re crafty enough you’ll find gems. Once you’ve done a search use search bar at top of page to look for other info.
Long story that I was going to attempt to thread one day but since we’re here I’ll just explain it. A few years ago McCabe and FISA court sued search engines to NOT populate this data, it was under the guise of National Security of course but pretty sure it had darker intentions.

Stop being the wind beneath his propaganda.
The entire MSM needs a STAT crash course on how not to spread blatant propaganda if we ever hope to survive this racist dictatorial bullshit.
Trump literally abuses the press and his power on a regular basis but they don’t have sense enough to recognize that granting him privileged access to lie to the public won’t make them or the country any safer. He will never give a FUCK about anyone but himself.
Learn this now.

Off to #SCOTUS, where we have arguments in Timbs v. Indiana at 10a over the “excessive fines” clause of the Eighth Amendment and whether its prohibition should apply—or be incorporated—against the states. It’s a case, in part, about asset forfeiture, and has drawn much interest.
Here’s a preview from @AHoweBlogger —>…
#SCOTUS, Nov. 28, 2018.

From a psychology/criminology standpoint, Trump’s guilt is self evident in his endless quest to subvert and obstruct the Mueller probe. It doesn’t get said enough that if he was innocent of the collusion charge he wouldn’t be going to such blatantly desperate lengths. #protip
Seriously, aside from playing golf and being racist, obstructing the Russia probe is all Trump’s done in the WH for almost 2 yrs straight. Just think of how many ppl he’s fired or appointed in hopes of fulfilling his widely known desire to end it altogether. Obsession/compulsion.
He isn’t capable of controlling himself or appearing cool under pressure and he’s such a sociopath that he can’t help but abuse all the power he has for as long as he can. He gives no fucks about how guilty he looks because in his mind the ends will justify his high risk means.

I can understand the reasons Mueller’s not releasing the results of his investigation before 11/6, but if indeed he’s uncovered proof of Trump/the GOP’s treasonous illegitimacy, exactly how is it “safer” to let them keep stoking domestic terrorism ahead of *another* election? 🤷🏾‍♀️
We’re literally talking about attempted assassinations of former heads of state, incited by the premeditated/sustained fascist rhetoric of a party and fake POTUS who colluded to steal a whole fucking election in 2016 and you’re holding the report back so as “not to be political?”
GTFOH we’re way past the fucking point of not being political.

While I was buying grass seed at the hardware store just now, I noticed that YETI now makes a 16oz coffee mug and have never impulse-bought anything faster. It is sweeeet. #DadLife
Also, #ProTip for you young dads out there as we enter aeration/overseeding season: splurge on the grass seed coated with fertilizer - not only does it grow faster, but the damn birds won't eat it!

Maurice Broaddus @mauricebroaddus Characterization Through Dialogue #WXR18
.@mauricebroaddus #WXR18
What is key to dialogue? 1. Pay attention to how people speak.
Exercise: record a family conversation and transcribe what people say. Different generations, ages, backgrounds. Start to see how people talk. eg Gilmore Girls, Joss Whedon, Quentin Tarantino
.@mauricebroaddus #WXR18
2. Good dialogue only evokes how people really talk. You don’t want to write how people really talk (um, uh, cussing). Straddle the line between how people really talk and how we wish they’d talk.

We can always debate the significance of the data or various connections we find in our research. Many don't lead anywhere or really mean anything.

However, when someone calls a provable connection or link a "deranged claim", we ask why. Nobody said you had to like it.
Receipts, since ppl have asked:

City Manager Lawrence Kendzior said "the purpose of the master development agreement is to define the terms and conditions of the transfer of 11 Crown St. from the city to The Michaels Organization for future development."
3/ "Kendzior was reviewing the agreement with Michael Development for tearing down and rebuilding 11 Crown St., formerly home to the Record-Journal, on his final day in office."

#ProTip: the term “TERF” isn’t a trans word, it’s a feminist term created by cis feminists in 2008 to stop the colonization of radical feminism by people obsessed with the eradication of transness who called themselves radical feminists.
The pioneering radical feminist collective, the Lesbian Tide was run by a trans-identified Lesbian.

TERFs harassed the radfem groups Sisters & Cell 16 into closing because they were staunchly trans-inclusive.
The radical feminist collective Olivia paid for trans care and physically stopped TERFs from murdering Oliva member Sandy Stone because she was trans.

This won’t be the first time Trump and Putin have met 1 on 1 in private either, they did the same exact thing last summer. How many more treasonous rendezvouses do they need to have before folk understand that they go together?

Thread: “How to WriteUp Your PhD and not get Overwhelmed” I’m spending a week with one of my (co-supervised) PhD students here in India. We are discussing general principles for getting it all done, so I will share some thoughts, in case it helps others at this stage #phdchat
First #protip : Start thinking in Paragraphs. All you will do next, really, is write a few paragraphs, that’s not too bad, is it? Live and breathe your science thoughts as paragraphs, or tidy bundles of thoughts that go well together
Don’t forget that a paragraph is really only 5-6 sentences. All these sentences should support and develop your topic sentence.

Take 2:

Easy genealogy mistake to avoid.

If your great-grandmother was Mary Murphy, nee McCabe, the "spinster" Mary Murphy arriving on a ship is not likely her, even if the age and place of birth match.

You're looking for a single Mary McCabe, or a married Mary Murphy.
Also, if Mary Murphy began having her children in Ireland in the 1850s, the single Mary Murphy who arrived in the US in 1860 is *definitely* not her. (Although I'm currently looking at multiple trees on ancestry that have all imported this same mistake for one family.)
Just saw this mistake:

If great-grandma was born in Europe in 1881, and you have her American marriage certificate from 1907 attached, that isn't her arriving single under her maiden name in 1908. Because, well, she was already here.

#protip: Two people can have the same name.

Trump to skip White House Correspondents' Dinner for Michigan rally

They could just as easily have called them diversity deserts, because the issue above all else is these White rural communities don’t just lack accurate news, they lack *people of color*. They’re racist, sexist and ignorant in general due to segregation, not just fake news.
My word, did @mattyglesias just delete the damn tweet?! You were actually on to something, man...
I’m not sure why he deleted it but here’s the screenshot. Clearly I can and will carry on without him though...

Les lacs présentent cette particularité (par rapport aux rivières par exemple) d'être des milieux avec peu de courants qui favorisent la sédimentation des particules. Parmi ces particules, des dépôts allochtones (externe au lac) et des dépôts autochtones (en provenance du lac).
D’ailleurs vous avez une idée de combien se dépose de sédiment dans un lac tel que le Léman ?
Je vous donne la réponse en début d'aprem !
Et pour le lac d'Annecy, qui est 80 fois plus petit en volume, est-ce que la quantité de matière détritique sera selon :
