One of my favorites to keep nearby. 2016 version. @CanterburyClass Please notify me when the updated version is ready. We'll need to remove the last 5 chapters, especially @HillaryClinton Nom speech.
Someone help me out. I can't find a #twatter presence on any 3 of these #publishing companies. Seems odd?
I'm also curious as to how many these companies made donations to the @ClintonFdn ?🤔
One everyone should re read!
#SilenceDogood8 Just so happens to be on page 17 😉…

OK, #LdnOntBike, we're maturing as a cycling city, so I've been thinking a lot about what we need in our store to meet that demand. Who's ready for a sneak preview of our amazing new City Bikes for 2020?
OK, this is pretty unanimous... here goes.
*INTRODUCING* Fahrradmanufaktur!
(literally "bike maker" in German)
High quality city & touring bikes, Made in Germany
We're going to carry two models in-stock (we'll get to those), but have access to their whole catalog by special order. They have an incredible selection of drool-worthy bikes with options like Pinion gearboxes, belt-drive systems, and more!

Hey you, yeah you. @DetroitCityFC supporters, stop being so goddamned happy. Stop presupposing that everything is locked down. Stop celebrating a victory that has yet to come. 1/
Trust me, I'm as excited about the prospect of @DetroitCityFC clinching the Members Cup title tonight as you are, but there's no guarantee that it is going to happen tonight, or ever, unless we work as hard this evening as we have all year. 2/
We are up against a team that has nothing to play for but spite. Sharta played angry and physical every time we've seen them and they'll be ramped up even higher tonight. If we win, we walk out with a trophy. If they win, they end the night with the satisfaction of denying us 3/

@SteveScalise @realDonaldTrump You are actually working to destroy the U.S. Constitution & democracy!

ICYMI #WeThePeople took away @HouseGOP in 2018 because you act like THIS!

In 2020, we are going to give @SenateDems the majority in the Senate & @HouseDemocrats WILL remain in the majority of the House!...
@SteveScalise @realDonaldTrump @HouseGOP @SenateDems @HouseDemocrats Do you know why???
It's really quite simple...@TheDemocrats listen to #WeThePeople & actually REPRESENT US!
If ANY Democrat had done any one of the things @realDonaldTrump has...@HouseDemocrats would lead the charge to impeach him/her & @SenateDems would 1st listen to the...
@SteveScalise @realDonaldTrump @HouseGOP @SenateDems @HouseDemocrats @TheDemocrats evidence at the trial & then & ONLY THEN would vote to REMOVE him/her from office!!!
That's because @TheDemocrats meant their oath!
It is unbelievably sad & practically unbearable to know that @HouseGOP & @SenateGOP have put ANY one person above this country & our Constitution!!!

Das frage ich mich auch schon immer, aber eine mögliche Antwort wäre schwer.
Ich denke so an die Laienführung, die aber selbst schon in ein falsches System geraten ist, weil ihre Vorgänger schon versäumt haben, den Bürgern zu erklären, warum man Soldaten in den Krieg schickt
@Julia42833681 2#
Ich als ehemaliger Soldat und mit den Infos, die ich mir aus den öffentlichen Medien geholt habe, halte den Einsatz in Afghanistan oder in Mali für keinen Fehler an sich, sondern nur in der Ausführung und wie es vor reifen und mündigen Bürgern zunächst verschleiert wurde
@Julia42833681 3#
Hätte man hier wie man erwarten kann, die Gründe benannt, hätte um Verständnis geworben und hätte immer weiter mit Bürgern kommuniziert, wäre vielleicht, nur meine Meinung, das Thema nicht so hoch gekocht,dass es Auswirkungen auf die Wahlen gibt und man dann einknickt

This is premiere day for #TheCasagrandes, the long-awaited, eagerly anticipated, spin-off of @Nickelodeon's big hit #TheLoudHouse, which preceded the premiere with a half-hour special.
Of course, "Kings of the Con" is the highly touted one which marks the reunions of (all together now) Ace Savvy, One-Eyed Jack and the Full Deck. The last of these are on screen for about one-third of the time.

TRAFFIC LIGHTS for October 14, 2019

Vectors courtesy of @VectorStock.
RED LIGHT to Holly M. Barker, a professor from the @UW's Department of Anthropology, who charged, in her new essay, "Unsettling @SpongeBob and the Legacies of Violence on Bikini Bottom", that the little yellow sponge is nothing more than a "violent", "racist" colonizer.
Yes, in this new essay, you can read all about how SpongeBob has long plotted to exterminate all of Bikini Bottom using a substance which releases that oh-so-deadly chemical called fun, to which he has devoted a song that he sings every so often:

Airing today at 1:30 PM, @Nickelodeon (Tucson cable: @CoxComm ch. 63/@Comcast ch. 48)
[To move to Saturdays at 11:00 AM on October 19, and then to 12:00 PM Arizona time on November 9 due to Daylight Savings]
As everyone and their mother knows by now, #TheCasagrandes is a spin-off "from the world of #TheLoudHouse" centering on the exploits of Ronnie Anne, her family, and her friends at a place called Great Lakes City, to which she and Bobby and their mother had moved from Royal Woods.
The spin-off has been the subject of discussion and debate in the Loud Crowd for over a year since its conception, and the conception was inevitable from the time that the episode "Relative Chaos" debuted. I am glad that a show such as this one in particular exists . . .

@marcorubio @ewarren rules the state! Americans are finally starting to realize that Republicans main goal is to destroy the Constitution & democracy! If you think that the majority of us are going to lie down & be ruled by your twisted, self-serving view of Christianity, you better think again!...

How Extinction Rebellion 168 climate change zealots - incl. a baronet's Cambridge-educated granddaughter - are paid £400 a week to bring mayhem to our streets. Tory MP called on #HMRC to launch an immediate investigation into the XR tax affairs
Paid XR activists who call for collective guilt & punitive #taxes on the western #taxpayer are enabling new breed of green capitalism, that make select few fabulously rich, while the rest of us choke down meatless hamburgers & pay our #politicians to tax us into oblivion
Climate Mobilization’s call to action has also managed to unite leftists & anti-capitalists with the global elite. Extinction Rebellion’s call for “net zero” atmospheric carbon is shared by The World Bank, and a host of neoliberal think-tanks & financiers

EDITORIAL: "My Little Pony: This Thread is Ruined"
MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC is about to end its run after a nice run of nine years. In fact, since its anniversary is today, a guy by the name of @EmergencePony decided that this would be the perfect time to pay tribute to the series. That sounds reasonable enough.
He opens the thread by saying, "Nine years ago, the world witnessed the first episode of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Today is a good day to say THANK YOU." So he says thank you to the series' creative personnel, its voice actresses and actors, its writers . . .

"Up #debt creek without a paddle"
#Iraq's budget’s structural imbalance between current & investment expenditures, as ever-increasing current expenditures will overtake revenues, needs debt to fund this gap.

Data in chart: 2010-2024 IMF estimates & projections.

#Iraq has been fortunate that higher oil prices & exports led to a budget surplus of over $27.5bn by end of Jul 2019. Revenue-expenditure gap is pushed forward in time. But, it is only a matter of when, not if, expenditures will overtake revenues.

This structural imbalance needs time be addressed, in the meantime there will be an urgent need to finance both.

The social contract, re-public employment, cannot be broken without creating the conditions for private sector growth to absorb an ever-growing labour force.

Thread: #XR isnt about climate

Stuart Basden Co-founder Extinction Rebellion says XR not about Climate (that's just a symptom of a toxic system that has infected the ways we relate to each other as humans and to all life)"

XR is about #decolonialism…
XR about #decolonialism: Basden says "how European ‘civilisation’ spread around the globe thru cruelty & violence over the last 600 years of colonialism, where the roots of the infections go much further back"
Basden #XR: "#Europeans spread their toxicity around the world, they brought torture, genocide, carnage & suffering to the ends of the earth. Their cultural myths justified the horrors, idea that indigenous people were animals (not humans)"

This shouldn’t be happening in Canada and yet it has. Racism has blossomed as the conservatives, far right conservatives, believe that racism is ok. It’s this behaviour that radicalize this that are marginalized or disenfranchised... /1
I’m thinking of the events that happened 2 yes ago where an #eps officer was stabbed at a roadblock and 4 civillian were hit by a Uhaul truck; both were linked to a radicalized man. /2
We as a country have always welcomed immigrants and yet it feels as if the “Make America Great” has trickled up here. I can see it in the way candidates are campaigning. People are defacing campaign signs, especially Trudeau’s and Singh’s. The biggest one was when Singh... /3

EDITORIAL: "Precautions spawned by #Joker controversy are good for business"
The #1 film at the box office last weekend was @JokerMovie. It is also the most controversial motion picture to be released in recent years, and single-handedly the most controversial motion picture to have come from studio, Warner Bros., since #BonnieandClyde (1967).
The @USArmy has "credible" information from Texas law enforcement "regarding the targeting of an unknown movie theater during the release" of this R-rated film. In Colorado, it won't fill any of the 16 screens of the Century theater that was the scene of the 2012 shooting . . .

Can it be called news if it’s billions of years from happening? Actually the new result is the gorgeous discovery by @Sydney_Uni of 2 previous galaxy collisions in Andromeda’s past making it even larger for the one with us!
The infalling smaller galaxies into Andromeda arrived in two vastly different directions, which is a prediction of the cosmic web where galaxies and gas flow along filaments into intersection points or nodes - and those nodes contain galaxies like Andromeda!
The stretching of dark matter filaments across millions of light years that link galaxies into a cosmic web long predicted in supercomputer simulations like Illustris 👇

The La GOP & Bill Cassidy brought in VP Mike Pence yesterday to a very red, pro-Trump Nola suburb, Kenner, for a “Unity Rally” for the LA gubernatorial race with the only Dem incumbent @LouisianaGov in the South. Our open primary features 2 GOP candidates attacking each other. 👀
If Kenner is familiar to you, it’s racist mayor got nationwide fame —rather infamy— when he banned Nike products from city playgrounds & booster clubs. 🙄
Back to Pence&LaGOP, the event was quickly planned — for the middle of an LSU football game— and announced about 48 hours before the event.. . So timing didn’t contribute to having large crowds. But... this is Jefferson Parish which went for Trump by 45 points in 2016. 👀

My reading into the demographic sustainability of the protest movement & the inevitability of reform.…

I argued, following the 2018 elections & based on the works ....

... of Falah Jaber’s “The Iraqi Protest Movement: Frm Identity Politics to Issue Politics,” & Faris Kamal Nadhmi’s “Historical Bloc” thesis: that the 2015 protest movement which resulted in the break-up of the ethno-sectarian monolithic blocs dominant over the past 15 years,
will continue to influence the political landscape for an extended period leading to meaningful change.

Demographic trends support this: Jaber’s survey notes the under 30’s age group accounted for 60% of the protest movement.
