Calling all #Raptors fans:

Jurassic Park is back on Saturday for the first time since Toronto’s 2019 NBA Championship win 🏀

thestar.com/news/gta/2022/…
As the Toronto Raptors kick off NBA playoffs against the 76ers in Philadelphia on Saturday, traffic around Maple Leaf Square — or Jurassic Park — will be shut down for the first outdoor Raptors viewing party since 2019, MLSE confirmed.

Prefer hockey to basketball?

Leafs fans will also be able to watch the team play road and home games in the square after the NHL regular season ends on April 29. 🏒

(1/11) Why didn't #SpaceX use #Mechazilla to lift #Booster4 onto the #OrbitalLaunchMount?

This piece of equipment is the main reason for using the #LR11000 Super crane to lift the booster, instead of the #Chopsticks. I'm going to refer to it as the Locator Pin.
(2/11) When fully extended, the locator pin is inserted into this position on the starship #StarshipSuperHeavy's Hydraulic Power Units (#HPU's). There are two of these located on either side of the booster.

(3/11) I'm not sure if the aero cover actually makes contact with this hard point on the booster, but its not meant to take much force either way. In order to not damage the booster, these locator pins are designed to have a relatively light tough.

(1/14) Hey #StarshipAddicts , @CSI_Starbase has concluded that #B4 is NEVER going to leave the ground under its own power & #B5 is just a massive lawn ornament.

#StarshipSuperHeavy #B7 is up next, lets look at some of the difference we have noticed so far!

(2/14) Fwd Dome Section:

On the FWD dome we see a new design for the stage separation clamps. These may have not been completed yet on #B7 but the initial shape of them is a departure from the previous boosters.

📷:@StarshipGazer | @CosmicalChief
(3/14) Fwd Dome (cont):

Autogenous pressurization lines have been moved higher up towards the top of the #CH4 tank dome instead of below the stringers like the #Block1 #SSH's (Sorry not sorry for making new acronyms)

Anyone else wish this was related to Hot Gas Thrusters?

Not a ton of games but some interesting TWEETSTORM WORTHY developments.

Lemme see some QTs tonight, eh friends?

Title: The Dwight Game
#Grizzlies @ #Raptors

A few things jump out on the Grizz side beyond just JJJ having a juicy one and Bane continuing to romp without Ja.

Thing 1 - Melton only got 17 mins. He tried to make the most of them with a usage of 35 but 17 mins is gross no matter how it goes.
I'm going to hang tight because while we all know Jenkins likes to yank him around, this is just ... come on. If it happens again, then I guess we just call Tyus Jones the guy who soaks up all the newly found mins and go from there.

On Jones, he played 34 mins and...

The wife has some patient notes to write, so I suppose I can carve out some time for this JUMBO STYLE TWEETSTORM.

Let's see if I can make it through to the end in one piece. It was a behemoth.

RTs/Likes always appreciated!

#Suns @ #Cavaliers

Look at big JaVale. Hah! I have a soft spot for him, and honestly he hasn't been that bad lately. He's a dynamite fill-in if Ayton misses time again down the road. In the interim, he's more of a 14 or 16 teamer. Still fun, though.
Kevin Love is very much in the streamer discussion but not a games cap level guy. Jarrett Allen's FG% is robust. But overall, no particularly earth-shattering fantasy valuation changes.

At Chhapar, a sleepy village 4 hours from Jaipur, life for the birds is high energy and high stress. A constant battle for survival. This black-winged kite flew from a distant perch to come close to me. He was carrying a skink. Sequence follows.

Choosing the safe perch of the moment.

1/ Congratulations to the #Raptors and to #Canada on winning their first NBA title. They played a great series - #kawhileonard was a great leader but 4 players with 20 points in an elimination game is huge. #NBAFinals
2/ The #Warriors showed a lot of heart and hustle in staying in this game despite injuries and had the ball in Curry's hands with a chance to win, but didn't get it done. #NBAFinals
3/ Yes, the #Warriors were banged up in an epic way, but that doesn't take away from what the #Raptors accomplished. Remember when the 1987 #Lakers beat a banged up #Celtics team? As a #Celtics fan, I was still in awe of how talented the Lakers were.

With the #Raptors about to hit the global stage, I’m going to share a story about what makes Toronto, and Canada, so special. It’s about a guy you’re going to be seeing a whole lot of.

A Thread.

[Hint: It's about racism, sports, and why you'll end up cheering for 🍁]
When you think of the Raps, you probably think of Drake on the sidelines, as the team’s biggest fan.

The thing is, he’s not.

In Toronto, we love @Drake. But there’s someone else who symbolizes everything great about Toronto and Canada.
This is Nav Bhatia. You're going to see a lot of him waving his towel on TV.

He's 67 years old and still cheers louder than your teenage nephew. If you've ever been to a Raps game, you can't miss him.

But here’s what most people don’t know:

Stoked to announce @ZooKeys_Journal published our @BatumiRaptors data paper! It explains how our #citizenscience project monitors the autumn #migration of >1.000.000 #raptors in the Eastern Black Sea Flyway, and how to use our #openaccess data @GBIF/@NLBIF! - 1/n

#ornithology
Many #raptors migrate primarily by thermal #soaring. To do so they travel by day and avoid high mtns and open sea. This leads to spectacular raptor aggregations in overland #flyways. One of the world´s largest raptor flyways occurs along the eastern Black Sea coast in SW Georgia.
The Eastern Black Sea Flyway has its narrowest point just north of #Batumi, where the coast and Lesser Caucasus form a clear "bottleneck". The mtns are not extremely high but present a significant barrier for #raptors on #migration due to low and dense cloud cover. @BatumiRaptors
