Listen 👂 please: #Israel can't renounce on violating #Lebanon and #Syria airspace. #Russia can't just wipe away the murder of 15 servicemen and its own reputation as a superpower @PutinRF_Eng experience similar situation with #Turkey in 2015
Después de leer un artículo, con cero base técnica y mucha demagogia, criticando la utilidad de las presas y animado por amigos tuiteros, os contaré un poco de la historia de la construcción y utilidad de una de las presas más famosas del mundo. "La Presa Hoover" en EE.UU.
Nos vamos de visita a una de las obras de ingeniería hidráulica más significativas construidas en el siglo XX. Os presento la Presa Hoover, ubicada en el cañón negro del río Colorado, en el límite de los estados de Arizona y Nevada (EE.UU.) #Hoover#Presas#USA#Dams
Bastante cerca de la presa, a unos 48 km. al noroeste, se encuentra la Ciudad del Pecado, “Los que pasa en Las Vegas, se queda en Las Vegas”. #LasVegas#Nevada
By removing Abadi, the US has lost a candidate that was not ready to balance the relationship between Tehran & Washington. That was the US biggest mistake in the last months, trying to impose Abadi (despite US denial). 3/+
The president of the USA has been accused by at least 20 women of sexual assault.
A candidate for congress had been accused by at least 6 women of sexually molesting them when they were teenagers.
And now a man accused of attempted rape is up for a seat in the Supreme Court.
And remember that one judge on the Supreme Court was confirmed despite being accused of sexual harassment.
When sexual harassment and assault are at the highest levels, it gives a green light that women’s bodies are fair game. #Patriarchy#USA
When 60 million Americans still vote for you despite your boast that when you’re famous women “let you grab them by the pussy,” is it too surprising that an attempted rapist is still being considered as a judge for life on the nation’s highest court? #Patriarchy#USA#SCOTUS
As founder of @gov20la conference that ran 5 yrs, I can attest to few things: 1. I set out to make sure gender equality was represented by ensuring 50/50 split between female + male speakers. This was easy to do, because so many superstars m/f. vimeo.com/gov20la
2. We set out to make it accessible by live-streaming almost all speeches + panels. There were a few the first year that did not get live streamed just because so many. 3. Back to f/m split. I did this because, our society is that way. It was a no brainer + had to happen #duh
4. We brought in speakers from 5 Foreign Governments + the US Government, plus state and local leaders, business leaders, think tank gurus and others.
Why? To bring the notion of open government to the people, and to show really how easy it is to create open dialogue that way
Mohammad al-Halbusi, with 169 votes, is the new Speaker of #Iraq. Halbusi was al-Anbar governor.
Hasan Karim and Rashid Jalil are expected to be selected in the next hour as the two vice Speakers.
A first official victory to the anti-#USA camp (pro-#Iran): Halbusi was presented and supported by al-Bina' coalition, the Maliki-Ameri (et al) group, even if the vice Speaker will be from the Sadrist (in the next hour).

Iranian militias in #Syria
By the beginning of 2012, with the increasing peaceful demonstrations the #IRGC began to feel the danger to the regime of its ally Assad and the major schisms within the #Assad army. Opposition sources estimate the number of dissidents at 150,000.1/12
Because of Assad's field losses, Tehran gave orders to #Hezbollah terrorist militia to conduct military intervention to save #Assad. It was the first direct military presence of the militia in southern #Damascus and the vicinity of Damascus International Airport.2/12 #Iran#USA

La tecnica del DNA ricombinante è la medesima impiegata nella realizzazione di molti vaccini odierni Questo studio comparativo mostra gli effetti di tale tecnica sul mais ottenuto e mette in evidenza le patologie delle colture OGM. ijbs.com/v05p0706.htm
Lo studio pone l'accento sulla necessità di una valutazione di ogni singolo caso sulla loro sicurezza. Tale valutazione, è bene ricordare, sia una problematica ampiamente riconosciuta e concordata dalle autorità di regolamentazione.
Dallo studio emerge che le tre varietà di granturco geneticamente modificate, prese in esame durante l'indagine, hanno individuato nuovi effetti collaterali, legati al consumo di essi, concentrati nella funzione renale e epatica, i due principali organi di disintossicazione.
Expect my article in few hours on #Iraq, #Basra and the role of #Moqtada. Also, an interview with one of the top leaders of the "Resistance" that seems to spread from the White House :-) to #Iraq via @AlraiMediaGroup and my blog.
Although any unrest between Shia in #Iraq or civil disobedience is in favour of the #USA, Shia leaders won't allow this to happen and you, dear followers, don't listen to so much rubbish around in this regard. My article will give a bit more light on ongoing events.
Just know that I know Moqtada so well, even better than himself (with all due modesty).
He rides the horse of Basra but can't control it at a certain point and doesn't have any strategic objective. More in my article.
No election of a large coalition today in #Iraq. The parliamentary session is postponed.
#USA doesn't have many allies in #Iraq. US envoy - I was told by many Kurds, Sunni and even Shia MPs - is threatening those unwilling to vote for Abadi despite any American denial of using this kind of approach.
Let's see what the Kurds will decide in a couple of weeks #Iraq
#Kurds Al-Fateh and Dawlat al-qanoon pulled out of the parliamentary session to sabotage the election.
FYI: Out of Abadi's 42 MPs, only 12 are left in his coalition. #Iraq.
#Iraq parliament may fail to decide today the largest coalition. The difference is significant: 1. Abadi and Moqtada will present a list including heads of groups and the total of MPs included 2. Ameri & Maliki will present a list with the signature of every MP supporting them/+
Abadi & Moqtada list includes tens of MPs who split and moved to Ameri/Maliki. They insist on representing the total of MPs on their list even if 30-40 left their coalition to the other side. /+
The oldest MP will head the Parliament and will decide what to do: either accept one of the two lists or send it to the court to decide.
The Kurds haven't decided, to this instant, which side to support. They are caught between their demands and the #USA pressure/+
In the next hour, the largest coalition, even if below 165, may be formed and will be resgistered tomorrow at the parliament. It all depend on one party (40 to 42) expected rto join Dawlat al-QWanoon and al-Fath (so far they have gathred 110).
I'll explain: #Kurds are not going to join any coalition tomorrow, waiting for the biggest coalition to register its name. Kurds have requests that won't be met this night. So their voices and seats won't be included.+
