Draft Monroe County Legislature map is out. This is the first 5-Majority-Black district proposal in Monroe County history. The 5 districts cover "the Crescent," the most historically disenfranchised areas of the community. All 5 are over 50% Black Voting Age Population. 1 #ROC
The map was drawn in accordance with Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act. All 5 districts pass the test to create protected districts. Map negotiated with Legislators, Roman, Yudelson, Brew, Pres. Lamar & me at table.
Parties agreed to take back draft to caucuses on 8/23.

Democratic Caucus got virtually everything it asked for in the suburbs.

Members oppose city lines, which remove gentrified areas from historically-Black districts & could set up Democratic primaries.

Democratic Caucus has not indicated it wants to come back to the table. 3 #ROC

Remember Gantt-Morelle war of '90s, '00s & '10s?

If you ever want to know Gantt side, look to 1992.

White Dems voted against creating more majority Black districts.

30 years later, we are on the cusp of history repeating itself. I’m working hard to stop that from happening. /1
Monroe’s Charter says Legislature-controlled Redistricting Commission is in charge of process.

Politicians picking their voters is riddled w/ self-interest. GOP blocked an independent commission.

Good news: makeup of legislature + county exec veto offers checks & balances. /2
The Redistricting Commission out of the gate made two huge errors.

First, Commission never asked what it wanted to do about the Voting Rights Act & rights of minority voters.

Instead we heard endless talk of keeping neighborhoods together, which isn’t covered by the VRA. /3

#Taiwan is part of #China - this is an indisputable fact. There is only one China in the world and #Taiwan has belonged to China since ancient times. In 1895, #Japan forced the #Qing government to cede Taiwan after Japan’s war of aggression against China.
In 1943, the #Cairo Declaration clearly stipulated that all the territories #Japan had stolen from #China, including #Taiwan, should be restored to China. The #Potsdam Proclamation of 1945 reiterated that “The terms of the Cairo Declaration shall be carried out.”
On Oct. 25, 1945, the #Chinese gov't announced that it was resuming the exercise of sovereignty over Taiwan & China had recovered Taiwan de jure & de facto. In 1949, #PRC was founded, becoming the successor to #ROC, & #PRC became the sole legal government of the whole of #China.

Months ago, while we were tracing down rumors of arts funding being given to the RDDC, we learned about their plan to create a Business Improvement District in Downtown Rochester, NY #roc 🧵
It sounds innocuous right? A "Business Improvement District"? Kind of like FHA loans and the GI Bill. Sounds good but when they started, they didn't help everyone. (first saw @shane_wiegand at @540wmain's Gentrification Conference )
They provided the opportunities to create wealth to only the white population. While eventually the civil rights movement pushed them to include everyone, decades of a head start, and decades of disinvestment has led us to the major disparities in wealth we have today.

Regarding the legislation that #roc Mayor @realmalikevans sent to Rochester City Council:

This is the RDDC asking if we want pepperoni or pineapple on the pizza they already ordered as they reach into our wallet to pay for it.
@realmalikevans We have been sounding the alarm for months that this legislation is a wolf in sheep's clothing. Signing over the power to levy additional taxes on city property owners for the benefit of a few.
The only justification we have seen has been "other cities have them" or "but we need it!"

1) Since the beginning of the war I cannot recall Major Arch. Sviatoslav, of the UGCC, ever criticising Patriarch Kirill directly, but he did so today.
Yesterday Kirill made a speech to teachers, and told them that they should give their students examples of heroic Christians.
2) "the teaching of the Fundamentals of Orthodox culture can in no case be divorced from our life, so you should always fill it with wonderful examples. Of course, from the lives of saints, but also from the lives of our wonderful contemporaries,
3) from the lives of heroes who gave their lives on the battlefields. After all, even today there are so many heroes, so many who sacrifice their lives, their health, defending their homeland.

1) Patriarch Kirill gave an important speech 3 days ago, in which he criticised the West and the Patriarchate of Constantinople, and lashed out against the cancellation of Russian culture.
2) Kirill began by recalling how Peter I “cut through” the window between Russia and the West, but added that now “this window remains open only for mutually respectful dialogue, and not ideological dictate and bossy shouts from outside”.
3) This is a constant refrain from Russian figures, and others in Eastern Europe. Even Pope Francis has spoken about the dangers of “ideological colonisation”, with the west wanting to impose its now godless values on the rest of the world.

1) This interview with Met. Hilarion, of the Department for External Relations of the Russian Orthodox Church, is from 13 May, but I only read it today.
Some interesting details to look at.…
2) Perhaps the most important is his insistance that: "in the West the statements of the Patriarch are viewed through the prism of propaganda carried out in the media, and Western politicians cannot adequately assess these statements"
3) This might make sense, were the Patriarch's statements not made public on his website. All the statements I have collected on my blog are not read through the prism of Wester propaganda, they are lifted directly from the homepage of the ROC. And some of them are pretty grim!

Am I right in assuming that from the noble world of international sports so far only @BSSFofficial and @GlobalAthleteHQ are calling for consequences for Russian and Belarusian NOCs - after #Putin's attack on the so often conjured "world peace"? Anyone else? #StandWithUkraine
Notable: The IOC member from #Ukraine @sergey_bubka is also silent. I sincerely hope that he and his family are well.
But one may also ask if he is one of those #IOC servants who keep mum when Thomas Bach asks them to?
Okay. @FIFPRO advocating for football to "review and sever" ties to Russian personnel / entities following sanctions.

🚨#SHOCKER: Olympic athlete from #Russia busted for doping.

Russian figure skater Kamila Valieva tested positive for #Trimetazidine—a banned stimulant—before arriving at the #Beijing Olympics, jeopardizing her team gold medal won this week.

Valieva’s bust for doping is ZERO surprise, as Russian athletes in Beijing are competing as the “Russian Olympic Committee” (#ROC) **after #Russia was banned because of a massive state-sponsored doping scheme** at the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

Cheaters gonna cheat.🤬

#Trimetazidine is used to treat angina (chest pain due to reduced blood flow to the heart) and is banned by @wada_ama as a stimulant.

The Russian bobsled team at the 2018 Olympics was previously #busted for **doping with the SAME drug** resulting in an 8-month ban.🙄

"Trading Divergences in RSI."

In this thread 🧵, we will discuss:
1. What is Divergence
2. Why are they formed
3. Types of Divergences
4. #Trading RSI Divergence
I had discussed #RSI indicator in my last thread.

If you have not read about RSI, I will encourage you to read about that first before learning about Divergence

What is a #Divergence?

It is when price & indicator are giving a different set of information. For instance, if price is going higher but indicator is not or viceversa, this shows that there is a dispute. In ideal case scenario – If price making high, indicator should also

Please understand the COVID-19 vaccines do NOT envelope you in a bubble. The virus, if in the air about you, can still enter your nose.
The vaccines make your immune system able to fight the virus if it enters the body, not before that. Goal is to prevent severe disease & lessen spread.
If enough SARS-COV-2 virus enters one's nose (nasopharynx actually), it will settle into the tissue lining it, the mucosa.
