So earlier today I posted on my FB about the anti-mask "freedom rally" in #Vancouver today of over 1,000 covidiots w clear presence (perhaps even organizing impetus) of #QAnons--a fundamentally antisemitic set of conspiracy theories. And this is tiny glimpse of 130 comments Image
Full comment stream here, not that I expect anyone to want to wade through it. Most replies are from my FB friends who are appalled by today's super-spreader rally. But since I keep my FB page open, anyone can jump on, and the #QAnons did in places…
The Guardian did a good backgrounder on #QAnon earlier this year. Q-Anon today is source of the "covid is a hoax" conspiracy theories that place Anthony Fauci and Bill Gates at center of some grand cabal. Q-Anon basically generates Trump's support.…

Ted Kuntz of Vaccine Choice Canada says in his speech at the anti-lockdown rally that it's time to take the BC government to court. The crowd went wild.

Anti-lockdown protestors have been threatening this since April. What's taking them so long? #Vancouver

So proud of @Raptors + coach #NickNurse -gr8 initiative to encourage #USA #ExpatVote #election2020 (only5% of 650,000+ eligible did so in 2016) See their Aug 29 vid here->
Dear 650000+ #USA citizens currently living in #Canada,
I don't know what brought you here (welcome to #WeTheNorth land)
But I can't understand why only 30500 of you voted in #2016USElxn. That's downright pitiful by any #voter turnout standard...
#USPoli #Toronto #Vancouver
..The results of the upcoming (66 days) #2020Election will have profound repercussions to not only #USA, but to #Canada . As a Canadian, I'm not eligible to vote. What's your excuse if you're a #USAexpat?

What follows is an exclusive interview with #Vancouver businessman Guo Taicheng, a VP of the China Federation of Overseas Chinese Entrepreneurs, an association of the #UnitedFront of the Chinese Communist Party, the #CCP. Interview jointly conducted by
Guo and his Hong Kong based company Shing Kee purport to be building a "mother centre" import-export facility in Yanjiao, on the outskirts of Beijing. His association membership, tied to the CCP (he is not a CCP member), brings opportunity for business, he says.

Dear BC,
This is Not Good.

This is on the “ohno, we fucked up” path of ramping up too much contact.

We can still fix it, although we’ll have a 2-week lag before any improvements show up.
Dear #Vancouver,
We're the problem. We need to be personally responsible with our choices. We're seeing way too many people way too quickly (& often close, indoors, with no masks!), leading to community spread.

Chill. Enjoy the sun, but do it solo. Yeah?

Our second wave is hitting faster than our first, and this time it’s in our most population-dense region with spread at social gatherings.

We got complacent & sloppy, but we know better. We can turn this around again, but we gotta reign it in.

Life for me went back to fairly normal in early June when I got childcare back. Everyday since then I have felt grateful &guilty - I know others have not been so lucky.

Today my kiddo woke up with a cough. Luckily we had a super speedy negative COVID test in #Vancouver #BC. 1/2
However, we have no childcare again until symptoms resolve. This has been an emotional day, and a stark reminder of the "new normal" of our lives. That we need to plan ahead, and have strong supportive work networks that let us attend to family and health when we need to. 1/3
I realize and aware of how lucky I am to have childcare to go back to, live in a place where we could get a quick and easy test and an amazingly supportive team (@UBCMDS you are the best). All of this made today much easier than it would have been otherwise. 1/4

If you see anything on anti-mask protests in Canada today, whether it's in the single digits or larger, please send it my way.
There's a couple dozen at the Ottawa anti-mask rally.
Hamilton proposed speakers according to Justin Long are Letitia Montana, Elle Sophia Resetti, Chris "Sky" Saccoccia, Vladislav Sobolev, and some 13 year old. So it's the Toronto anti-lockdown people and the Yellow Vests. Saccoccia planned to give out "exemption cards"

THREAD: This is Shivali Lekhi. She saves lives at BC Children’s Hospital as a respiratory therapist.

This morning, she drove with her brothers for hours to their family home to find broken windows and this graffiti. Their parents were alone last night when this happened.
Ramesh Lekhi and his wife were inside when they heard a big bang from the windows breaking.

He showed me the swastika at the front of the house and said he knew what it meant, but had to explain to his wife, who cried the whole night.
This is Abhishek Lekhi, who just graduated from @UBC in Vancouver. He says the graffiti is an act of hatred making him wonder if their family was very truly welcome in the place he and siblings were born and raised.

I've become passionate about "SIGNAL" BREAKING. See all this? Auto companies signalling celebs, black hats, deep state and cabal. They're #streetstrong ⁠— suppliers equipt for COVID "wave 2". @realDonaldTrump Do they think we are stupid? #QAnon #QAnons ImageImageImage
I wanted to know what the "590W690" on the #Ford windshield was. With 5G at top of mind, the search results were very interesting. I know Ryan Reynolds is Canada's "ambassador", so I thought I'd dig further for fun.

.@realDonaldTrump New themes everyday. Definitely a "dot" and "spot" theme happening since "Mary Poppins Returns". How many SHERMANS are there? Shermanmania? Maybe they're just mad with 'fury' because #JFKJrReturns too. #COVIDIDIOTS #COVID19 #Plandemic #QAnons #MadMax #BlueDot ImageImageImageImage

Thread: Dump bad equations. They lead to bad decisions.

On May 10, Mr. @BorisJohnson proposed a simple equation to determine #COVID Alert Level. He then explained how the reopening policy could be shaped based on this "Threat Level".

In this thread, I will explain why this equation is not only wrong, but is also completely unnecessary — especially when we have clear alternative measures that can guide #COVID policies and decisions.

* Fast forward to tweet # 11 if you already know Dimensional Analysis.

One of the first subjects in physics is "Dimensional Analysis". It needs to be emphasized more in high school and college physics courses.
