Slot machines in the #USA , fruit machines in the UK or pokies in #Australia - more than a million one-armed gambling devices all over the world generate almost 70 percent of total casino revenues nowadays. Nevada along has nearly 200,000 these amusement appliances.… SO, HOW DID EVERYTHING START?
Well, Bavarian-born American Charles August Fey is recognized as the man who invented the first slot machine, at least in the modern connotation. But not many people know, that almost fifteen years before… the “great breakthrough” primitive coin-operated gambling machines already delivered unpretentious fun to the visitors of saloons.

Believe it or not:

as early as in the 1880s the humble precursors of present-day slot machines could be seen on

I understand the intense feellings on either side of this issue,

but if the news are telling you that Roe v Wade was settled law or that it would stand forever they are lying to you

Roe had a many rather large weaknesses, & its incredible it lasted as long as it did
Roe v Wade was always fragile,

Ginsburg said in a 1992 lecture that “doctrinal limbs too swiftly shaped, as experience teaches, may prove unstable”… @MrAndyNgo @MrAndyNgo @MattWalshBlog @lizzywol @wil_da_beast630 @Timcast @QTRBlackGarrett @libsoftiktok
isn't a rightwing talking point either,

many lefty outlets & journos pointed this out over the years, its a common belief taught in law school & discussed in congress & legislatures across the country

just not something they like to talk about openly…

Se non esistesse il diritto all'#aborto a 25 anni io avrei dovuto portare in grembo un feto anencefalico fino alla sua naturale morte o fino a un parto, probabilmente prematuro e probabilmente cesareo, che gli permettesse di nascere morto o sopravvivere qualche ora appena
tra le sofferenze che deve procurare il fatto di non avere la calotta cranica a protezione d un cervello non completamente formato. E con la sofferenza mia, una giovane madre che avrebbe dovuto proseguire un gravidanza senza speranza, affrontare un parto presumibilmente a rischio
sopportano il dolore fisico più grande del mondo senza la consolazione di una nuova vita da stringere o affrontare un cesareo con i lunghi strascichi che comporta ma senza la gioia di un figlio

😢 Met het terugdraaien van de Roe vs. Wade is #abortus in de #USA geen landelijk gegarandeerd recht meer maar wordt dit overgelaten aan de individuele staten. Een flinke stap terug qua #vrouwenrechten! Kort draadje. 🧵…
Op dit moment is 45% van alle wereldwijde #abortussen illegaal wv 95% in ontwikkelingslanden gebeurt. #Abortus is veilig mits goed uitgevoerd maar van alle doodsoorzaken tijdens zwangerschap is tussen de 4 a 13 procent te linken aan onveilige #abortus.…
Ik ben benieuwd hoe het er qua cijfers vlg jaar in #Amerika uitziet. Bijna de helft van de Staten (Republikeins) is #ProLife en zal #abortus dus naar verwachting extreem inperken of verbieden. Wat moeten de meisjes en vrouwen daar doen? Terug naar de kleerhanger of breinaald?

Die Barbarischen Staaten von Amerika

Der #SupremeCourt hat #RoeVsWade gekippt.
Das ist ein weiterer Schritt zum Gottesstaat und eine weitere Entfernung von #WestlicheWerte. /TN #USA…
Gerade bei der armen Bevölkerung, die es in den #USA in Massen gibt, wird dies eine krasse Entwicklung sein.

Sogenannte Engelmacherinnen werden die Lücken füllen, da die Frauen nicht einfach mal die Bundesstaaten wechseln können. Das wird medizinische Probs nach sich ziehen. /TN
Illegale Schwangerschaftsabbrüche gibt es überall auf der Welt. Auch in der BRD war dies mal ein großes Thema.

Der Effekt: Hygienisch oft nicht einwandfrei, Methoden meist zweifelhaft.

Resultat: Infektionen bis hin zum Tode, Unfruchtbarkeit, massive psychische Schädigung. /TN

Sta girando un video di #BrunoVespa del 2018, che ha molto successo nel twitter filo #russo.
Il video ci permette di analizzare come la #propaganda #russa sia da anni così pervasiva da essere incastonata nelle opinioni anche di chi filo russo non è.
vediamo perché:
"ma come è venuto in mente di mettere i missili in #Polonia" dice #Vespa.
ma di che parla?
parla di un sistema DIFENSIVO antimissile, parte del sistema di difesa #NATO, deciso dall'amministrazione Bush nel 2002, con l'evolversi delle capacità dei missili balistici iraniani.
La #NATO volle proteggere il fianco orientale con delle installazioni DIFENSIVE anti missile in #Romania e #Polonia e un radar in Repubblica #Ceca.
La #Russia di #Medvedev, temendo di perdere la capacità di deterrenza, reagì con le minacce.

Die #USA haben mit Hilfe der SDF-Milizen in #Syrien Weizen geplündert. 40 LKWs & 36 Militärfahrzeuge (alle mit Weizen gefüllt) sind von Hasaka (NO Syrien) in den #Irak - durch einen illegalen Grenzübergang. Syrien ist in diesem Jahr auf Platz 1 der ernährungsunsichersten Länder.
In den letzten Jahren haben die USA & ihre terroristischen Milizen in #Syrien immer wieder den Weizen verbrannt, um Syrien in eine größere Krise zu stürzen, als es die vom Westen verhängten Sanktionen ohnehin schon tun. Syriens Weizenproduktion ist von 4 Mio.t auf 1t geschrumpft.
Und auch Öl wird ständig geraubt. Erst im Mai raubten 70 Öltanker & 46 US-Kraftfahrzeuge syrisches Öl und schmuggelten es in den Irak. Die USA & ihre Terrormilizen besetzen die größten Ölfelder des Landes. Das Land wird getötet & ausgeraubt. Kein Aufschrei der Ukraine-Heuchler.

Argh. Jetzt seh ich da *schon wieder* einen Tweet über die Timeline flattern, ab wann #Russland denn eine Kriegsbeteiligung #Deutschland's sehen könnte.
Leute. Kommt mal klar. Russland hat der freien Welt schon vor vielen Jahren den Krieg erklärt, das jetzt ist Haarspalterei. /MS
#China übrigens genauso. Industriespionage, Hacking-Angriffe mit staatlicher Deckung bis hin zu offener Beteiligung, Finanzieren und anderweitiges Unterstützen von rechtsradikalen Parteien mit dem Ziel, unsere Gesellschaften von innen heraus zu zerlegen. /MS
Die #EU & die #USA haben diesem Treiben, geblendet von Korruption oder der Aussicht auf glänzende Profite, viel zu lange zugeschaut und nichts gemacht, höchstens ein paar kleine Sanktiönchen nach der Krim-Invasion. /MS

RF analytics on the milit-biological activity of the USA/allies in various regions of the world, including #Ukraine. They have have previously spoken about the experiments held by the employees of a lab in Merefa on the patients of a psychiatric clinic in #Kharkov since 2019-2021
2. It has been noted that one of the organisers of this illegal activity was a US citizen Linda Oporto Al-Haroun. The documents received during the special military operation have revealed that this kind of investigations has been carried out in Ukraine at least since 2011 and
3. Al-Haroun repeatedly visited the branch of the Merefa laboratory built with funds of the Pentagon in Sorokovka, Kharkov region. Despite the fact that this installation is provided with underground storage facilities & powerful ventilation systems, it is officially...

India has been pleading with “super power #USA” for 15 yrs, to help strengthen #India’s technological capabilities, so it can independently deter aggression by #China in the Indian sub-continent, & become key US-backed security provider in the Indian Ocean & its littoral (#IOR).
2/indus The logic of competitive strategy(Andrew marshal) shows that its in the best interest of USA to provide strategic technology to India to get best bang out of its military budget, so as to divert PLA attention away from Taiwan which is critical to long term defence of USA

It’s no secret, players from the #USA have limited access to the plethora of software developers available out there. The vast majority of top-rated US websites are either powered by #RTGN alone or take advantage of the… robust combination of Rival, Betsoft, and Saucify. However, things are getting better with more and more online casinos expanding their libraries.… The roster of restricted casino slots for punters from the United States is so extensive that it’s much easier to recount allowed providers than those who are not. Still, it seems appropriate to list restricted game

[THREAD] 🧵#Lebanon's maritime border negotiations and it's implications :

The Mediterranean is filled with giant untapped gas fields which many countries can benefit from to boost their economies (#Egypt, #Palestine("#Israel"), #Greece, #Turkey, #Lebanon).

#Lebanon's maritime borders with Palestine are not drawn yet. There's the Karish gas field that is on the border on disputed territories, which contains hundreds of billions worth of gas.

[#Lebanon and undeclared sanctions] In 2020, Total suddenly stopped it's exploration activities in Lebanon and declared that "there's no commercial quantities available in blocks 4 and 9", and refused to give it's reports to Lebanon.

"Resolved, That the flag of the thirteen United States be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation."
~ Second Continental Congress, June 14, 1777.

Maj. George Armistead commissioned Mary Young Pickersgill, a professional flag maker from Baltimore, Maryland, to make a garrison flag measuring 30 by 42 feet with 15 stars and 15 stripes in 1813. She would make a smaller 17 by 25 foot flag as well.

Using Bitcoin at online casinos comes with many benefits. The biggest of them is that BTC is the only option to always allow for both deposits and withdrawals – well, #USA players are far from being spoiled for choice. Setting up a #BitcoinCrash wallet is an easy and… No doubt, withdrawing winnings using BTC is the most reliable way to receive your payout. First off, you will be hard-pressed to find a website, which accepts BTC deposits but doesn’t allow BTC cashouts. Secondly, no one can deny a win-win combination… existence of limits. Typically, it takes up to 24 hours (of course, after your withdrawal is approved) to receive your Bitcoin winnings.

The original thread on what you are not being told about #EU sanctions on #oil has led many people to address many useful questions. The main questions are : tehnical (why is it so hard to make the transition ) , geopolitical (what we can expect) & operational (what other /1
solutions are possible). Assuming the #EU sanctions against #Russia will be maintained here is what we will happen technically, geopolitically, operationally. 1) technically speaking it is very complicated to change The original thread is here. /2

Come promesso, oggi parliamo delle molte cose dette da #MoniOvadia, persona degnissima, contro la quale non ho nulla, che interviene molto circa #Russia e #Ucraina e che dovrebbe documentarsi meglio, perché molte cose che dice sono imprecise e parziali.
vediamo insieme perché
la sua pessima opinione sull'informazione italiana, in parte fondata, non gli impedisce però di presenziare giornalmente a trasmissioni come #lariachetira, dove esprime opinioni su cose che conosce evidentemente in parte.
ad esempio parla dei curdi:
1) le armi ai #curdi le abbiamo giustamente mandate, dal 2014 al 2018, USA, Germania, Italia, Svezia hanno armato i curdi dell'YPG, proprio quelli aggrediti da #Erdogan
Non mi ricordo di nessuno che dicesse che questo avrebbe "allungato la guerra".…
