Another reason why I should leave San Francisco is the fact that I have fought every day for this city and rarely ever is there any support or team work. Whenever I walk through San Francisco I only ever see @bettersoma , @mattdorsey and Mr. J J in the trenches on the frontlines.
People complain every day but don’t ever do anything about it. It makes everything seem pointless. @michelletandler talks about fentanyl. When is she going to talk about our fentanyl emergency petition that has almost 1000 signatures? It takes two seconds to share petition.
I love @GMcDee2 @JacquiBerlinn because they aren’t picking and choosing what is “cool” to support. They support everything that is dedicated to combating fentanyl. They not only do their own fighting but they also support other people fights instead of picking what is “cool.”

“Solar is the cheapest form of #EnergyGeneration on the planet, unsubsidized. Solar is the cheapest source of #energy in history. Nothing else is as cheap as #solar — today.”
“Solar is so cheap that the total costs are lower than just the #OperatingCosts of #coal, #nukes, #oil, or #gas generation… that’s today! Even if you get that gas #PowerPlant for free, the costs of running that power plant are higher than all the costs of #solar.”

Good morning, #Alaska! The Alaska absentee/early vote tracker has been updated to include yesterday's data:

cinycmaps.com/index.php/stat…

19,619 people have voted by absentee or early thus far - 11,750 absentee and 7,869 early. The top HDs for absentee + early are all Anchorage:

1/
1) HD-9 (S Anchorage/Girdwood/Whittier)
2) HD-17 (Downtown Anchorage)
3) HD-16 (Turnagain/Airport/Sand Lake ANC)
4) HD-23 (Eagle River)
5) HD-11 (S Anchorage)

Bottom 5 are all roadless rural/Kodiak (HDs 37-40 & 5)
I don't recall Downtown ANC doing well in the these before. It's usually Juneau.

1/ #SunTzu is credited for the phrase “Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak”. This phrase makes sense in warfare. Lets try to analyze the Russian invasion of #Ukraine in this context. Hopefully, this will shed light on the inner workings of the conflict.
2/ At this point, it is no secret that #Russia performance in the #war is mediocre. It failed to conquer Ukraine, a much smaller and less populated country. Moreover, Russia even failed to encircle #Kyiv and #Kharkiv. There is no way to hide this, the Russian armed forces suck.
3/ At the same time, Russian saber rattling is on an all-time high. Russian propagandist threaten to attack #NATO countries. For example, #Lithuania and #Poland in the #Suwalki gap and the #US in #Alaska. “Appear strong when you are weak.” #Putin propagandists know their #SunTzu.

The 133rd daily thread of #Russia's war on #Ukraine

One of Putin's closest allies confirmed it's not just about #Donbas; the goal remains regime change & to effectively conquer the whole country.

But big damage was inflicted by 🇺🇦 y'day on Donetsk.
Here's the news updated⬇️
Starting with the view from UK's Ministry of Defence Intelligence.

#Sloviansk (and #Kramatorsk) the next big targets for #Russia and losing these would be a huge psychological blow (more than Lysychansk) for #Ukraine

#StandWithUkraine #StopRussia
However, #Ukraine's Defence staff says they beat off a Russian offensive yesterday.

"the enemy shelled civilian infrastructure in #Siversk + #Hryhorivka. (we) inflicted significant losses on the enemy during his attempted offensive. The occupiers left."

#Alaska Division of Elections has finished counting in the House Special Primary + released unofficial results.
1) Sarah Palin-R
2) Nick Begich-R
4) Mary Peltola-D
*3) Al Gross dropped out + WON'T appear on ballot.... but 5th place finisher Tara Sweeney won't advance. 1/3
Good explainer by @beckybohrerap about what the *bleep* is going on in #Alaska House race:
Al Gross withdrew in time to get off ballot, but # 5 Tara Sweeney won't bump up because withdrawal comes <64 days before the Aug. 16 special election. 2/3
adn.com/politics/2022/…
"Any party that disagrees with these decisions should file suit immediately."
So sayeth AK's Div of Elections Director about 5th place finisher (Tara Sweeney) not advancing to Special Elex ballot. 3/3

Interesantísimo mapa ruso 🇷🇺 de la Nueva España en 1788

En carmesí aparece lo que era conocido como la Nueva España. Verán que se extendía desde lo que hoy es Sinaloa y Durango hasta Costa Rica.
Por los tonos empleados para identificar territorios podemos enterarnos que el mapa era muy anacrónico, pues mostraba info al menos 60 años antes.
Las tierras más al norte están marcadas en azul y parecían que aún no eran absorbidas dentro del virreinato: Nuevo México, Nueva Navarra (Sonora)y California.

6 y.o. Cameron Dye from Anchorage #Alaska was placed on life support and developed heart failure due to multisystem inflammatory syndrome that began 4 weeks after a mild case of COVID. #TheySurvivedCovid alaskasnewssource.com/2021/01/08/6-y… Image
“He used to have so much energy and right now he does not... it’s very different to see him very tired & not being able to do some of the things he used to. We have faith he will be one day, but it’s going to be a long road to recovery.”
Cameron Dye was released from the ICU on Dec. 29 after being intubated for several days and receiving intravenous immune globulin therapy and high dose steroids, Hailey Dye said.

Che notizia ho appena letto (e che non sapevo assolutamente): i #criceti reggono l'alcol molto meglio di noi, complice il loro stile di vita e la struttura resistente del loro fegato, secondo uno studio dell'Università di #Alaska Anchorage. Che figata! Un 3d ci sta tutto. 1/n 🧵
In realtà, i primi studi sulla predilezione dei criceti per le bevande alcooliche risalgono agli anni '50 del secolo scorso, e quest'ultima ricerca non fa che fornire ulteriori elementi di conferma. 2/n
Gli studiosi hanno confermato che prima dell'inverno, questi piccoli roditori accumulano nelle loro tane semi e frutta. Le provviste fermentano col passare delle settimane e la loro concentrazione in alcool diventa sempre più alta. 3/n

The story of the #BuildBackBetter has yet to be written. Let’s examine the 50 Republican US Senators who are voting against lifting children out of poverty, education,elder care, affordable prescription drugs, child care & family leave? What does this mean for YOUR STATE? Image
#ALABAMA Sen. Richard Shelby is voting against the #ChildTaxCredit “The Center on Budget &Policy Priorities found making the program permanent would benefit 93% of #AL children,lift 162,000 #AL children above/closer to poverty line & benefit 480,000 #AL children under 17. Image
#ALABAMA Sen. Tommy Tuberville has offered you no solutions; he has admitted that he “wouldn’t have a clue” how to address the current pandemic and recently told people that $600 per week in federal unemployment benefits was just “too much.” al.com/news/2021/12/a… Image

The messaging on this is terrible; causing unnecessary outrage.

#AndrewYang is not trying to run #3rdParty, or rejecting #Democrats, or asking anyone else to, he will just endorse/support any candidate who aligns with his (atm, mostly #Democratic) policies.
#Yang has said multiple times that he knows #Independents can't win the presidential and almost never win Congressional races, EXCEPT where there's open, #RCV elections, like #Alaska, and he's not encouraging anyone to register as Independent.

#Florida has finally been seeing dramatic improvements in its #COVID19 numbers.

It's been a while since I've done this, but it's warranted, so here goes a Florida update 🧵

New daily infections (cases) have been decreasing in September as rapidly as they increased during this #delta surge.

We're where we were in mid-July, with numbers also similar to where we were in early February.

Under 7,700 cases per day over the last 7 days.

2/ Image
The chart below highlighting the past 8 weeks tells the story. After plateauing for 2 weeks towards the end of August, it's been 4 straight weeks of considerable decreases in cases.

We don't want to be at 7,000+ cases per day, but moving in the right direction...fast.

A thread. People are asking why I left #Alaska a place and people I had grown to love. There were several reasons & as people preparing to transition to retirement we needed to make a go, no go decision. What follows is a list of some of the why.
1) State Budget. The fiscal situation in the state is unsustainable & there doesn’t seem to be any will to actually fix the problems until there’s nothing left & then options get ugly quickly. Rank & file citizens have all sorts of perceived quick fixes like an income tax,lottery
more taxes on oil, etc. As someone who actually worked on the problem & proposed some comprehensive solutions in 2015, I can tell you there are no quick fixes. Taxing a declining population alone won’t fix it, no one solution will. I felt like we had moved beyond the
