Amazing day in the field!

Did the 7 hour drive and put 7 hours of field work in, day 1.

Our 6th research visit to #EastPalestine #Ohio area has begun.

Sulfur Run, where the chemicals first entered waterways from The Norfolk Southern #disaster is practically free of water in some places.

Some places are flowing others seemingly with stagnant pools. Image
Sheen still exudes from the Sulfur Run creek banks in places where we visited.

We did see free floating sheen (not from us disturbing) after the confluence of Sulfur Run and Leslie Run.

Y'all I'm livid rn. Just got home from meeting with Rs to try to convince them not to vote out my state rep, @brotherjones_ . One of them said to my face that they were scared for their life bc of what happened at the protest. They flat out lied to my face......
... this TN R rep said that state troopers were checking IDs and that most of the protestors were brought in from out of state. I've been up to the statehouse and Capitol too many times to count at this point and NEVER have they checked my ID as I went through security...
.... this same rep said state troopers were confiscating knives and mace from people. And that might be true as ppl carry pocket knives and mace regularly. But I saw no evidence that anyone at those protests were anything but angry people of #Nashville.

Our second thread in a series about why #Tennessee @TNGOP leadership is resorting to authoritarianism.

Generally they only care about big business/their donors. Their policies are failing average Tennesseans.

This thread is about our poor economic outcomes.

#Tennessee is #42 of 50 states for average income.

The median US income is $67,521 - well above our $56,071. (Source next Tweet)…

We've written a lot of threads on #Tennessee status at the bottom of 50 states on virtually everything from average income to life expectancy. Sadly it isn't a surprise that @TNGOP is now resorting to authoritarianism, since its members lack the skills to lead our state. 🧵
Basically the issue is that @TNGOP "leadership" puts big business/their donors first. They don't even think about average Tennesseans, since those folks don't have big bucks to pour into campaign coffers.
As a result #Tennessee has some of the worst outcomes for residents in the United States. Some of them are comparable to the undeveloped world, not a state in the most powerful country in human history.

I’m in the gallery. Waiting to see if they vote to remove my state representative. If they do, I won’t be quiet. I’m ready to make good trouble.

So one of my relatives lives in Nashville, and a friend of theirs did some digging on Covenant.
According to the digger (haven't verified yet) there were some issues at the church back around the time Audrey was there.

And then shenanigans ensued.

Gonna do some looking around to see what I can see. Will share here.

3 settimane fa il #Tennessee ha vietato la #mutilazione di genere infantile.

Oggi un #transgender ha commesso un crimine d'odio per omicidio di massa premeditato contro i cristiani uccidendo 6 persone, tra cui tre #bambini piccoli.
La portavoce della #CasaBianca: "Quanti altri bambini dovranno essere uccisi prima che i repubblicani al Congresso si facciano avanti e agiscano per approvare il #divieto delle #armi d'assalto?".

1) Trump won't be able to terminate the US Constitution but a Republican-led effort to rewrite it continues… Trump's "allies are busy pushing an unprecedented rewrite of the foundational document that would fundamentally alter Americans' daily lives."
2) "In 2022, a group with ties to Trump's orbit was able to get four more states to join its efforts."

"@CommonCause is trying both to thwart any new convention pushes alongside repealing old resolutions calling a convention."… Support them!

1/3: An @NRCgov inspection at the Watts Bar #nuclear plant in #Tennessee found a "chilled work environment" in the Chemistry Department. But you'd never know it from the inspection report cover page.… Image
2/3: A "chilled work environment" means individuals are hesitant to raise nuclear safety concerns for fear
of retaliation and perceive that supervision is retaliating against employees for bringing up concerns.
3/3: "At the time of the inspection, the team determined that many employees in the chemistry department ... have the perceptions that nothing will be done with their concerns ...[and] the amount of turnover and churn among the staff and supervisors is causing tremendous strain."

24-25 November 1863 - BATTLES OF CHATTANOOGA #CivilWar
After defeating Union Maj. Gen. William Rosecrans at Chickamauga in Sept., Confederate Gen. Braxton Bragg's Army of Tennessee took up positions south and east of Chattanooga, TN. on Lookout Mountain and Missionary Ridge. Image
The CSA force lay siege to Rosecrans' Army of the Cumberland in the city, cutting it off its rail access. The War Dept. dispatched about 20,000 men under Maj. Gen. Joseph Hooker from the Army of the Potomac by rail in late Sept. to relieve the beleaguered Union army.
In late Oct., Hooker attacked CSA positions southwest of Chattanooga to restore rail access. Maj. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant arrived and took overall command; Maj. Gen. W. T. Sherman led Grant's Army of the Tennessee, while Maj. Gen. George Thomas replaced Rosecrans. Image
