A packed room for our Urbanising in Place workshop at @organiclea on Land, Soils & Nutrients!
Graeme Willis from @CPRE kicking us off with some facts about the importance of soils ... something so fundamental to life that we rarely speak of - other than as ‘dirt’
We have started to realise that we need to care for the quality of our air and water - we need the same awareness about soils

LOCAL PRODUCTION FOR THE LOCAL MAN

Apparently, I never knew we have more than 5 Locally packaged Rice in Nigeria until yesterday and that alone makes it interesting.
I made a funny tweet yesterday, so others showed us the Local Rice in numbers: Ayam shook
Govt closed border & as expected, Local men & women shouted & cried & abused the Govt.
Lo and behold, it's like the Govt we abused was correct on this PARTICULAR STEALTH OPERATION....Copy that, C-in-C you are correct.
Border closure don reduce smuggling!

1. Let's get some perspective regarding Epstein's autopsy report. I keep reading people's remarks that are nothing more than copying and pasting #FakeNews talking points. Please stop that!

Do your own research folks, then make your own INFORMED evaluation and present findings.
2. I'm 280lbs. I used to lift weights regularly. I could bench press over 400lbs and single arm curl about 140lbs. I worked in security and law enforcement for a bit. While fighting suspects, I put several people in choke holds and/or carotid restraints. I never broke a neck.
3. I was very strong compared to 90% of the population. But, even with all that strength, my bear hug strength was about 350 lbs. I know because we tested our strength repeatedly. My hand grip strength was very high.

It takes 1000-1500 lbs of force to cleanly break a human neck.

Mini thread/rant about anthropocentrism in comparative communication: an increasing pet peeve of mine is our tendency to explore other species communication as it relates to ours through a human lens e.g. most studies are on vocal communication b/c of our speech bias 1/n
But we have to do this right, much easier to get that grant if we chuck 'evolution of language' in somewhere right? I don't think so. Studying species communication from the perspective of the species using it 1. allows us to explore awesome species specific capacities AND... 2/n
Critically, if we do it properly we'll understand what is meaningfully (rather than superficially) similar or different about human & other species. We can be anthropocentric about the question (if that's what rocks your world), but it's crucial that we're not in our methods 3/n

What I find strange about
@fordnation
eliminating 50 Million Tree program is that it’s exactly type of land stewardship program conservatives should like as it supports volunteer action by landowners rather than impose regulatory req. to plant trees on private property #WINWIN
The PR folks in Premier's Office are claiming that tree planting by the Forest Industry (which is a legal requirement and mostly happens in northern Ontario to reforest logged areas) some how makes up for the elimination of tree planting programs in southern Ontario. It doesn't.
Firstly, the Forest Industry is legally required to re-establish forests on crown lands that they log through tree-planting or other means. 95 % of lands in southern Ontario are privately owned and reforestation regulations don't apply.

And this, kids, is why Sanctuary Cities exist. Police in such cities get more trust & thus cooperation from immigrants (both documented and non) &are therefore better able to solve crimes & put bad guys away, making those cities safer for everyone.

#WinWin #NotADifficultConcept
We all know how much trump hates Sanctuary Cities,& how much ICE & CBP hate them, too.

WELL, GREAT NEWS FOR AWFUL PEOPLE: ICE has figured out a way to get around the whole state's rights/schmates schmites felgercarb &really stick it to those immigrants!

wapo.st/2PR9Wvb?tid=ss…
What they're gonna do, see, is train local and state cops as Warrant Service Officers for one whole day, thus making them complicit in the whole "rounding up of immigrants and holding them for ICE" thing, despite whatever negative effects it WILL have on local communities.

Just thinking while unloosing the caboose:

Wouldn’t it be great if colleges and universities ( in sanctuary cities) make some dorm rooms available and create a 90 day English and skills program for all the immigrants trump will dump at their cities soon?
#SanctuaryCities #winwin
I think i am going to run with this.

While hiring a ton of down on their luck veterans who have labor skills ( mechanics, engineers, electricians...)

« Les trains circulent à vide ! C’est un problème. »

Petit thread sur un argument qui n’aime ni les trains ni le climat.⬇️

(Photo: André Knoerr flickr.com/photos/fototak… )
L’officine patronale AvenirSuisse sonne la charge : les trains sont vides. (En langage techno « Des capacités inutilisées dans les transports en commun ».)
avenir-suisse.ch/fr/des-capacit…
Les chiffres semblent impressionnant :

« le taux d’occupation des sièges des CFF est de 32% seulement pour les longs trajets et de 20% pour le trafic régional. »

Et ils sont à peu près vrais (en 2017, d’après les CFF : 31,2% et 22,4% respectivement )

Kicking-off #EMTA meeting sessions.
Great introduction given by @jaume_mateu, let’s enjoy!
#publictransport #sustainablemobility
New Regional Master Plan in the #BalearicIslands is willing to overturn #transportation planning from traffic to #mobility management.
"If you plan cities for cars and traffic, you get cars and traffic. If you plan for people and places, you get people and places". Fred Kent.
The last 16 years of planning and transportation management has been nearly useless to reduce private motorized vehicle trips mode share. It's time to change if we want to keep living on this precious islands.
Push and pull policies need to be implemented in the short term.

Un nuevo libro sobre la mesa "La economía WTF, el futuro que nos espera y por qué depende de nosotros" de @timoreilly Inicio nuevo hilo 👇 amazon.es/econom%C3%ADa-…
Hay factores que empiezan a ser una constante en textos de innovación y futuro. La llegada de la IA, un nuevo mercado laboral y un sinfín de cambios que de una u otra manera ya están aquí. La clave es como los utilizemos para generar un futuro mejor 😉
