New report: ‘What happens in English generalist #daycentres for #olderpeople? Findings from case study research’ by @katitao @JillManthorpe & Anthea Tinker
@hscwru @DunhillMedical @NIHR_S_L
1/6 Image
The report aims to improve understandings of #daycentres among social care/health professionals & potential collaborators. It showcases the complexity of these services & their diversity, shedding light on what makes them multi-faceted ‘interventions’. 2/6
The Covid-19 pandemic led to a greater appreciation of the need for in-person contact and the difficulties facing some older people when they could no longer meet other people in their #daycentre when these closed temporarily. 3/6

#OTD in 1862, #Confederate soldiers repulsed a massive #Union assault on the second day of the #Battle of #Fredericksburg. Wave after wave of Union soldiers were mowed down during a full frontal assault against Confederate troops positioned at Marye’s Heights. Image
After the Battle of #Antietam a few months earlier, General #McClellan allowed Lee's Army to retreat back to #Virginia to fight another day. #President #Lincoln then relieved McClellan of command and replace him with General Ambrose #Burnside. Image
Burnside quickly planned a fall offensive to move on #Richmond. However, the Union Army's operation faced logistical setbacks, allowing Lee to settle in at Fredericksburg. Burnside chose to attack Lee head on, a decision that proved disastrous.

Big takeaways from our survey of fix-and-flippers last week: 1) Rates have massively slowed transactions and prices are falling broadly. 2) Lots of talk about flippers changing strategies, holding-and-renting instead of flipping, or exiting the space entirely.

#Atlanta flipper: “Many highly-leveraged flippers will need to go out of pocket to sell or will default on no-recourse loans. We will not see improvement until the 2nd half of 2024. Many will not make it to that point and there will be some bargains for cash-flush investors.”
#Baltimore flipper: “Sellers are still not reacting to market shifts. Sellers need to lower prices.”

Companies tied to housing revising guidance due to supply chain. Commentary from our builder survey this month indicates things getting worse before they get better. Homes sitting, waiting for materials (dead days). Big delays in windows. Delta outbreaks. In sum, a crapshoot. 🧵
#Nashville builder: “It's a crap shoot. Some municipalities will issue permits in 1 week, & others are 6-9 months behind. Supply chain is a mess. Windows are now 7 months out, cabinets are 6 months out, etc.”
#Chicago builder: “Build cycle increased due to backordered materials including bathtubs, appliances, & ceramic tile. Trades are much more limited in availability & now have some ‘dead days’ with no activity.”

Just surveyed 6,000+ real estate agents across country. Top themes from our 1st ever RESALE agent survey: 1) Buyer fatigue, w/rumblings of remorse. 2) Bidding wars a bit less bonkers. 3) Cash is King & ton of investors. 4) Inventory gridlock. Commentary across country to follow…
#LosAngeles agent: “20-minute allotted home viewing time slots with offers due next day by noon, & buyers are asked to give up every contingency under the sun.”
#NYC agent: “Luxury home buyers feel the market is overpriced & have backed off.”

Analyzing June new home sales & pricing figures from our monthly builder survey. As one builder noted: “It’s not fun to be a builder anymore.” Lumber relief is nice but pick your poison on other issues. Market commentary from across the country to follow...
#Richmond builder: “It's not fun to be a builder anymore. Cost pressure is killing us. Not only will builders like myself who take 12-24 months to build a house lose margin from increases, but the affordability is becoming a major issue.”
#Atlanta builder: “Costs have driven up prices & we’re no longer preselling. We will not sell a home until frame stage, so our sales numbers are off for June while awaiting framing stage.”

For you two @SonnieJohnson @JaVonniBrustow ...

A History of the Lily-White Movement - Richmond, Virginia

"In 1920, state Republican leaders decided that in order to win, they needed to establish a “lily white” image. At their state conventions in 1920 and 1921, ... Image
@SonnieJohnson @JaVonniBrustow ..., the Lily White Republicans barred black voters from attendance. Black delegates were not seated in 1921.

Racial justice did not make it onto the platform. Image
"In response, 600 Black delegates met in Richmond on September 5, 1921, and nominated their own Republican candidates for state office—all Black." Image

Michele Gilbert Moffatt, a Registered Nurse active with #Richmond #Antifa faces 3 felony charges for harassing RPD officers by posting home addresses last year.

Police arrested & seized her electronics. She's been released on 1k bail. ImageImageImage
Her Twitter has been ID'd as @justthemedic thanks to the chest tattoo (If you're going to do an anon twitter account maybe don't post that?)

Social Media activity shows advocating violence and connections with Molly Conger, Goad Gastby and other #Antifa… ImageImage
The account that was setup around that time to harass officers is likely "RPDID2020".

She's married to a doctor in Richmond who has sent money to her Antifa friends before. No indication of his involvement beyond that. ImageImageImageImage

Due to the recent #ChevronRefinery #oilspill near #Richmond, I’m sharing “Refined?” a birds-eye view of the refinery. This artwork is in a series about water & land use policies… THREAD 1/9
…inspired by a talk by poet #GarySnyder. He gave us a quiz entitled “How Local Are You?” He asks: “Do you know where your water comes from?” “Do you know where it goes when you are done with it?“ “Do you know where your garbage goes?” and so on. 2/9
I didn’t know the answers to many of his questions and and he inspired me to learn. As I researched where my sewage & garbage go & where my gasoline is refined & noticed were all on #sanfranciscobay. 3/9

John Lewis- not that one, the other one who everyone entering #Richmond Park should thank for their ability to do so (he’s on #Sheen Gate if you want to do so personally). In 1755, he came to #Sheen Gate, and attempted to walk through, after a carriage been through (thread) Image
This was an act of rebellion because #Richmond Park’s appointed Ranger, Princess Amelia, had chosen to restrict entry to the Park to people with carriages and special tickets- basically, her mates.
In doing this, Amelia was simply continuing the progressive exclusion of ordinary people from #Richmond Park which kicked off with Charles I enclosing what was previously farmland, and common land with a wall so he could hunt. He was reluctantly compelled to provide ladderstiles.

The #UKGovernment Torture Report

This is a very short overview of what the #UKAuthorities have done in the case.

#PraiseTheLORD #PraiseGod #Borisjohnson #Downingstreet #PritiPatel #UKParliament #Dailymail
In 2005, I set up a business selling CDs, namely mixtape CDs after graduating from Uni.

In 2006, my home was raided & my business was stopped. They said the CDs I was selling were in breach of copyright.
It was a complete shock as the exact same CDs I was selling were prevalent on most high streets and supermarkets. They were selling in their thousands in places such as #Tesco & #HMV. And #Woolworths were the actual UK Distributor of these CDs.

The scene at the corner of East Main and 14th right now.
Colette McEachin, Richmond’s Commonwealth’s Attorney, is at the 17th Street Farmers Market, where hundreds are gathered for a demonstration. She praised people in attendance today for making their voices heard peacefully.
As for protests the last 48 hours, she said she hasn’t seen anything like them in 30-plus years here.“It’s been horrible. Absolutely horrible. Everyone is absolutely sickened and disgusted. Nobody who lives in Richmond is happy or proud about what has happened this past weekend.”

I would never try to predict what is likely to happen in #richmond tomorrow, but let me just provide some context of why I am hopeful violence will be averted and why that is mixed news. 1/
The #richmondrally has the benefit of two key features that are always desirable in a high risk event: 1)notice, meaning resources can be deployed, plans made, public notified, etc. and 2/
2)lessons learned, meaning what happened in Charlottesville is now known to have been the result of poor planning, so everyone has adopted changes. The motto "Go big or stay home" describes the state of emergency to the FAA ban of small aircraft/drones to National Guard. 3/

We love getting questions about #geology, #mining and #minerals! We were asked about historical #coal #mining in beautiful #RichmondCounty, #CapeBreton - #Whiteside and #LowerRiverInhabitants specifically. Here's our answer.
#nspoli #NovaScotia #NS Image
#NovaScotia #coal was first mined in #Sydney in 1672. The first commercial coal #mining venture in #Canada was established by the #French in 1720 in #CowBay, #CapeBreton, to supply the #FortressofLouisbourg.
Coal still provides half of #NS' electricity.
#nspoli #minerals Image
There were several small historical #coal mines in the #Whiteside/#LowerRiverInhabitants area in the 1800s and early 1900s. Records are a bit spotty and even contradictory (mine names and dates can be inconsistent) but the mines appear to have included the following:

BREAKING: Two #fossilfuel storage tanks have exploded at #NuStar, a tank farm next to the #Phillips66 refinery near #Crockett & #Rodeo in the #BayArea. No reported casualties, according to @KTVU. The explosion likely caused an adjacent brush fire.…
@KTVU Our thoughts are with #firstresponders and community members in the #EastBay as a shelter in place has been ordered. Stay safe and don't go outdoors until the order is lifted. Check the latest on the @CCCounty Community Warning System here:
@KTVU @CCCounty A situation like today's #NuStar tank farm explosion in #EastBay is exactly why we must put a stop to the expansion of #fossilfuel infrastructure in the #BayArea and around the world. Learn more about the movement to #ProtectTheBay:
