Dear People of #Israel,

It’s time to get off the trains.

Get out into the streets and start protesting this tyranny in huge numbers, like the rest of the world are.

It’s time to wake up.
These are protests against tyranny in #Turkey 🇹🇷

#Israel, it’s time to wake up.
Get off the trains.
These are the protests against tyranny in #Netherlands 🇳🇱

#Israel, it’s time to wake up.
Get off the trains 🇮🇱

WHAT REALLY HAPPENED IN SPAIN THIS SUMMER?? In this thread I will use official sources and try to make sense of Covid in Spain in the summer of 2021. We look at the "5th wave" and the "Wave of the Youth" - all myths propagated by media - as well as the injection programme.
Spain previously suffered quite a bit from Covid, but only in specific periods and in certain regions. It seems that the different climates in the Spanish regions led to localized outbreaks at different times, but of similar duration. momo.isciii.es/public/momo/da…
Observe how most regions had one big wave of excess mortality, then nothing since, while some have 2 (those who got the small one first)

Several regions have no excess death at all. The point is, all this behaviour is predictable, not unexpected and totally natural.

Thursday's #Coronavirus megathread starts here with the best #Covid19 global analysis and round up available on Twitter.

First a little quiz, answer in the next Tweet:
Do you know which country has had the most recorded cases of Covid19 as a percentage of population?
So I hope there was no cheating... I'll leave some blank lines here too in case some later viewers don't want the answer just yet...
.

.
.
So the nation with more #Covid19 cases than any other based on population is highly vaccinated #Seychelles at more than 20% infected.
Today I spent quite a long time being filmed/interviewed by @bbcturkce about #Covid19 and #Turkey. Not sure how much they will use, let's see.

Coincidentally the cameraman Efe, just happened to be in Kyiv as one of those using Ukraine for a 10 day stop off to avoid hotel prison!

The daily #Coronavirus megathread for Tuesday starts early, from Manchester airport.

Because of the early start I missed a few countries from yesterday's thread, first I'll update these #Covid19 totals. Tweets during the day may be delayed due to travel & connectivity issues

#Britain has stopped evacuating #Afghans and is now moving to wind down its military presence in Kabul.
The #ISKP attack yesterday was the most lethal attack on #US troops in Afghanistan in a decade, and in 2011 the US was engaged in offensive operations - something that could be called "a war" - which it has not been since 2014.
The casualty figures for the US security presence low, and the benefit - providing key capacities that sustained the Afghan state, which bore the brunt of the fight to keep the jihadists at bay - was very significant. All lost now, for no reason.

Here is my second thread on #COVID19, #ForcedVaccinations, #HumanRights violations and other aspects. Let us start it on a lighter note but the message is clear and pure truth as we are not living our lives due to fear. Go out and enjoy your lives today. #DigitalIndia #IndiaAt75 Image
I would also like to know more about and meet my two anonymous followers as they have been patiently reading my tweets without any interference and disruption. I appreciate your commitment and let us have a word now friends. DM me if you are introvert. #DigitalIndia #IndiaAt75 Image
Hi @jack and @TwitterSupport. I am unable to see my 2 followers and therefore I cannot interact with them and share my views and learn theirs. Is this a flaw or feature or both? I hope you would help me in communicating with them by making them public. #DigitalIndia #IndiaAt75 Image

Is some sense returning? The region of #galicia in #spain has been trying obsessively to implement vaccine certificate for restaurants and bars. The regional Supreme Court has thrown this out repeatedly.
In this thread I will detail the reasoning by the authorities. Come with...
On page 2 of the resolution, "the right to personal intimacy, as the measure would mean exhibiting personal health-related data, which is, by European legislature, protected information which requires more protection and confidentiality."
"Also the principle of non-discrimination could be affected, as the [...] measure would lead to a discriminate treatment of citizens depending on the [...] certificate. [...] vaccination is not mandatory"

Medios europeos preguntándose por qué va la vacunación tan bien en #Spain. Plantean explicaciones bonitas como la fe en la #sanidadpública. Creativas como el recuerdo de la última epidemia de polio. Yo tengo otras hipótesis complementarias.
-¿El Estado tiene algo que darme, algo público, gratis? Dame de eso, ya (efecto sardinada popular)

-Hemos tenido que esperar meses por nuestra franja de edad. Cuando llega ya hay ganas y sensación de agravio (efecto no voy a ser yo menos)
-las vacunas fueron anunciadas a final de año pero fueron distribuidas con cuentagotas hasta hace poco, lo que les da más "valor". Efecto carestía

-¿Es un pinchazo y fiebre el precio para no renunciar a mi ocio favorito y a mi socialización? Venga ese pinchazo (efecto cañitas)

A vague #tsunami was triggered yesterday in the Southern Atlantic at the South #SandwichIslands

Seismic data show a Mw7.5 #earthquake, but aftershocks and observed waves on various stations indicate a much larger (and probably more complex) mechanism.

risklayer-explorer.com/event/1273/det…
Right now, it is unclear what actually happend. Aftershocks stretch almost 300km from North to South and tsunami waves of 0.2 - 0.7m have been recorded in the Southern Atlantic & Indian Ocean. Too much for "just" Mw7.5
To at least mimic the potential tsunami, a virtual earthquake was simulated with a wave pattern roughly corresponding to the observed water levels.

This virtual earthquake was estimated to be around Mw8.3 with a 210 km length and a maximum slip of 20m.

All those 11 #MIURA1 sections have different functionalities and are mated together in the final steps of the integration after individual acceptance. In some cases requires full set of acceptance test in nominal conditions before final assembly in the launch vehicle.
#MIURA1 Section 1 is the engine section and the one that holds the #TEPREL-B engine and some stage valves for propellant management. Engine is almost ready to support tests and launch. New features now in progress to improve reliability.

Compilation of Parliamentary Financial Links to Private #Healthcare
This represents the latest list of recent or present financial links between #parliamentarians and #individuals or #companies involved in private healthcare.
up-to-date as of March 2nd 2014. It has increased !
#MPs and #Lords are able to vote on legislation, even when they have a direct #financial interest.
This happened with the Health and Social Care Act, which saw the #NHS being forced into a world of an external market.
The legislation was written for industry, by industry and is part of the overall plan for it's demise and the eventual takeover by #private health insurance companies.
