"Hullo" from Southampton, where your correspondent is currently attending the Association for Law, Property and Society conference #ALPS23. We began on Thursday with a trip to the New Forest (which is actually quite old), then returned to the uni for a nice reception. Reception at Southampton un...Reception at Southampton un...
Presentations started today, and yours truly was up first. I decided to push myself a bit and present on homelessness law. Scotland has a much vaunted system, but there are issues with it in practice notwithstanding the strong rights of applicants. #ALPS23
Sue-Mari Viljoen gave a talk entitled "Housing in Public", which gave an overview of a South African case where a municipality was stopped from selling land for money (that could then be deployed elsewhere by it) when the land could have been used for e.g. housing. #ALPS23

After some cold weather at the end of February, how is the deficit in #snow water resources doing across #Italy? Snowfalls did not change much, as we still estimate a total deficit of -63% 👇 This means we have about 1/3 of recent-year snow for this date. @DPCgov
A thread 🧵👇
👆 Did you notice that?
We were in a much better spot at the end of January.
What has happened since then?
Well, we experienced a significant warm spell in February, which depleted about 1/3 of snow water resources.
We learned this: warm temperatures = less snow…
It is not only the Italian #Alps that are experiencing a significant, profound deficit. Most of the #Apennines are back to the deficit zone after a snowy January. Again, such high temperatures can only lead to faster than usual snowmelt and very short accumulation.

Im Gegensatz zu anderen bearbeite ich fast alle meiner Fotos. Drum dauerts oft ein wenig länger, aber hier sind die Highlights meiner gestrigen Reise nach #Hinterstoder.

Los gehts in #Linz. Nicht mit Herbert, sondern mit #IC503. Aber "Herbert" ist später noch wichtig.
Der eigentliche Plan war einen Zug früher zu nehmen. Aber früh aufstehen ist nicht ganz so mei Sach. Außerdem wars durch die Schneefahrbahn ned ganz so einfach zum Bahnhof zu radeln.

Zum Glück hab ich in weiser Voraussicht im IC einen Radplatz reserviert.
Dank #CityShuttle Steuerwagen war auch ein bisserl #fensterAuf möglich. Außer mir war niemand im Fahrradabteil :)

Around 3000 BCE in eastern #Europe, a Proto-Balto-Slavic #language started to diverge from #ProtoIndoEuropean.

The #Slavic branch of the #IndoEuropean #languages began about 2,000 years later when Proto-Slavic deviated from Proto-Balto-Slavic.

As the #Slavic-speaking area expanded during the first millennium CE (striped area on map), Proto-Slavic transitioned to Common Slavic.

Bon cette nuit, j'ai "sauvé la planète" du #ChangementClimatique et plusieurs fois en plus 😁
Blague à part, le @MIT (@MITSloanSusty) a publié un outil pour actionner les différents leviers et influer sur notre trajectoire #Climat.
C'est très intéressant⬇️…
Alors, première chose, c'est vraiment très bien fait !
Un outil à utiliser en workshop pour nos décideurs politiques et marier climatologie, énergie et économie (cc @valmasdel/@fmbreon/@alaingrandjean/@cassouman40 etc,)
Poke @GaelGiraud_CNRS, car Kaya inside 😁
Je ne vais pas faire une leçon sur son usage, c'est assez intuitif/complet, l'outil prend en considération la temporalité des actions, leur "effet de traîne" et leur "effet cocktail" ex, je ↘️ la 🌡️ à peine de 0.2°C en ↗️ les subs aux ENRi ss toucher à l’efficacité énergétique

After more of 5 years of #restoration reopens the Sala delle Asse in the #Sforza Castle. The largest painting ever made by #LeonardodaVinci is back. This amazing work of art shows the passion for nature and landscape of the Tuscan master. #thread 1)…
@TheBlogArtPost @Svagaia @secolourbano @viaggevolmente @turismomilano @LombardiaSforza @StPallavicino @visit_milano @FondaPoliMi @VentoPolimi Portions of the original preparatory drawing made by #DaVinci have been revealed for the very first time. Here a beautiful landscape that can be easily recognized as #Lombardy landscape. Notice the bell tower with the spire, so typical of Lombard architecture of the 1400s. 2)
