#Epstein #Wexner #Lindner #Riklis

In 2006 Charles Linder (partner of my abuser and his father Meshulam Riklis) was named as the 2nd wealthiest man in Ohio.

The first wealthiest man in Ohio was Leslie Wexner.

NOTE: These men all know each other. Connect the dots.
In this 1991 lawsuit Rapid American Corp v Harris you can see Meshulam Riklis's name as the owner of Rapid American.

Carl Lindner's name is mysteriously mis-spelled.

Linder was Riklis's partner.

Riklis also went to Ohio State like Leslie Wexner.…
Riklis served in the British army in 1942-1946.

It is during the war it has been said that Riklis worked as a covert agent aka intelligence asset aka spy.

Growing up, I heard there was a secret "NASA" rocket testing facility in northern Nevada (home for me), but I never knew what it was. Today, I finally found out...
Thanks to @Erdayastronaut, while digging into aerospike engine history, he came across this test site in Nevada called the "Nevada Field Laboratory" (NFL) which is tucked away between Reno, NV and Pyramid Lake 📍 Map:,…
The NFL test site is only 20 miles north of Reno, and the only people that (I recall) knowing that this place even existed were local farmers.

Turns out...this place was instrumental in the #Gemini, #Apollo, and #Shuttle programs for supporting rocket engine dev testing 🚀

Here is the thread about my visit to #RSCEnergia Museum with group of friends from #AlphaCentauri Channel. The Museum is located on RSC Energia territory in the city of Korolev, and it is not easy to get there due to the security level. But thanks to Evgeny we managed this quest!
It is forbidden to make photos inside the perimeter of RSC Energia, so I can show you only the entrance and the #Vostok rocket that stays on the territory. There is written on the entrance building: "Space begins here!".
This is the hallway of the Museum with beautiful photos of rockets and the 1:1 mock-up of #Sputnik, the first artificial Earth's satellite.

Insisto: é muito cansativo ouvir #Varandas falar. Mas o esforço compensa. À medida que ía transcrevendo a entrevista dada à #SportingTV (com muita pausa>play>rewind), foi sendo cada vez mais claro:

A formação do #SportingCP já foi hipotecada pelo #JorgeMendes.

É oficial. ⬇️
Os sinais existem e estão em todo o lado:

- no discurso de #Varandas "apostar forte na formação para vender"
- na contratação de #LeonelPontes "não foi por acaso"
- na venda de #ThierryCorreia por 12M€ ao #ValenciaCF

E se mais pistas fossem precisas, é ver a capinha d'@abolapt de hoje e compará-la com outra do @Record_Portugal a 14 de Outubro de 2013.

Até o número de jovens bate certinho: 5.

De um lado "Pontes".
Do outro "Jóias".
Tudo "Para o Futuro".

- Acredita que este ano é que vai ser (#SportingCP campeão)?

#RogérioAlves: “Nós não devemos fazer demagogia. Nós temos de ter pedagogia, não temos de ter demagogia. Porquenós vivemos permanentemente na demagogia.”

#RogérioAlves: “O que é que eu acredito. Eu acredito que, estando o #SportingCP agora a iniciar uma pré-época com tranquilidade, com os meios que tem. Nós não podemos ir comprar o Messi, nem o Ronaldo, nem o Mbappé, nem jogadores desse calibre.”
#RogérioAlves: “Temos de inteligentemente gerir os nossos meios, para comprar bons jogadores e fazer uma boa equipa. Eu acredito nas pessoas que estão a dirigir o futebol do #SportingCP.”

Get ready to be 🤯

Tomorrow is the 50th annvsry of the #Apollo #FakeMoonLanding

I knew someone who said they worked on the moon.
Listen to @emerysmith33 talk w/ John Lear 📺

@emerysmith33 Here is a synopsis of the program 👇
@emerysmith33 If you are experiencing "no sound", p[lease be advised that this program works best on a lap/desktop and with an updated system. If you are using "updated" iOS (vs droid) it will work best. Also make sure you have volume ON and that this is not muted 👇

OK, this made me tear up. About 9 years ago (April 2010), my plume research made me realize we have to get NASA to publish guidelines to protect the #Apollo sites. I invited John Guidi of NASA HQ to fly with me in reduced gravity and we chatted it up during the flight. /1
2/ Here's a picture of John (left) and me (right) in one of the reduced gravity flights that week. The plane was giving us lunar gravity and we were studying how jets of gas blow lunar soil in those conditions. After the flight we went to a taco place in Houston...
3/...and I said we should write voluntary guidelines because time was of the essence and there wasn't enough time to make actual laws or regulations to protect the sites, and we were facing problems & roadblocks in potentially going to the United Nations. John said "let's do it!"

So while everyone's been talking about #Apollo 50, I've been thinking of a more recent event. Tomorrow's the 25th anniversary of #ShoemakerLevy9's impact with Jupiter.
This was humanity's first close look at the effects of an impact event, and I think along with the growing scientific acceptance of the Chicxulub impact's relationship to the end-Cretaceous extinction, is largely responsible for our entire program of near-Earth asteroid research.
But back to July 1994. As Shoemaker-Levy 9 closed in on Jupiter, astronomers were getting ready to swing a year's worth of planning into action to study the impact in as many ways as possible. But there was one problem - the impacts wouldn't be directly observable from Earth.

‘I Think He’s Engaged in #Blackmail’: A Jeffrey #Epstein Expert on Where He Made His Money… #OpDeathEaters " I always suspected, but not got around to pursuing, that he was embezzling funds." #OpDeathEaters
#Epstein charities: "NBC is reporting that the charities hadn’t really received the donations that he’d reported." Link:… Charities say they never got donations Epstein claims he made. Again, SDNY has been looking into this for years. #OpDeathEaters

@wdunlap “Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, #Trump dismissed his past appearances with #Epstein …Epstein’s personal little black book, leaked by an employee in 2009, contained 14 phone numbers for Trump, his wife, Melania, and several people who worked for him.”…
@wdunlap “But even beyond #Trump’s own words further up, there’s a good deal of evidence the two were friendly social acquaintances at least through the early 2000s”

“Trump called #Epstein twice in November 2004, according to message pads seized”

@wdunlap “Attorneys for #Epstein say he obtained a foreign #passport under an alias in 1980s to defend himself from potential kidnappers while traveling in the Middle East.

worried about perils he faced traveling there as ‘an affluent member of the Jewish faith’”…

Ora mi sono rotto veramente il cazzo. Pur di fare pubblicità a un ennesimo documentario che non cita fonti scientifiche ma solo voci non verificate, si continua a spargere la cazzata del non allunaggio. Che sia tutto un complotto. No, sei tu #IvoMej il coglione, 1/n
insieme a tutti i tuoi simpatizzanti che non avete studiato affatto la storia internazionale della vostra vita e avete avuto un’istruzione pessima.
Da dove cominciamo? L’obiettivo: chi sa un minimo di fotografia sa benissimo che negli anni ’60 si utilizzavano pellicole a 2/n
relativamente basse ISO: si intende la sensibilità della piccola a essere eccitata dalla luce. Il massimo che si potesse sperare era una sensibilità di 800ISO, che veniva poi aumentata nella camera oscura, però a discapito di una peggiore qualità dell’immagine: la rumorosità. 3/n

Reading some @NASAhistory, and was curious who this was...
Her name is Poppy Northcutt, and she's the first female engineer to work in Mission Control at @NASA_Johnson #Apollo8.
For half a century, pop culture has immortalized a group of quick-thinking, pocket-protected men as the face of NASA’s mission control room during the Apollo program. But amid this sea of men, was one woman: Frances “Poppy” Northcutt, engineer and return-to-Earth specialist #NASA

🚀Countdown to Launch 🚀

July 16, 1969, three astronauts departed on a mission that would captivate the world. In celebration of #Apollo50, we're counting down to the launch of #Apollo11 by sharing an artifact each day that tells the story of our journey from Earth to the Moon.
The artifacts we will be highlighting — big and small, critical and amusing, familiar and never-before-seen — are expanded on in the new book "Apollo to the Moon: A History in 50 Objects" by National Air and Space Museum curator Teasel Muir-Harmony. #Apollo50
Yesterday marked 50 days to #Apollo11 launch, so let's start at the beginning of the Space Race: the failed launch of the Vanguard TV-3 satellite in December 1957, a response to the Soviet Union's Sputnik success two months earlier: #Apollo50

Ainda (e sempre, até estar devidamente explicado e apresentado em sede própria - aka AG) o "protocolo" de 2M€ que o #SportingCP assinou com o #Wolves (clube propriedade da #Fosun).

Hoje dei com um nome que pode vir a ser importante: #JorgeMagalhãesCorreia.
Mas quem é #JorgeMagalhãesCorreia? Diz o @ojeconomico:

"É apreciador de carros antigos. E do #SportingCP. Gostos discretos de um homem de negócios que prefere os bastidores. Com 60 anos, lidera a #Fidelidade, mas têm sido os investimentos da #Fosun a dar-lhe mais poder."
Na página do @ojeconomico, oferece um miminho sobre #JorgeMagalhãesCorreia: os seus "inimigos". E nesta categoria, lá vem um tal de #GustavoGuimarães, "o rosto do poder americano da #Apollo, em oposição ao chinês da #Fosun."

Onde é que eu já ouvi estes nomes... 🙄 #SportingCP

After a recent tweet by a friend of mine who was dismayed that no-one cared about the lunar rovers on the moon’s surface, I decided to make a thread on rovers – both manned and robotic.
So here we go …….. “Rovers – Past, Present and Future.”
Rovers had been planned for the surfaces of other planets since the early 1950s but it wasn’t until the Soviet Union launched Luna 17 carrying the Lunokhod 1 rover on 10th Nov 1970 that this became a reality.
Lunokhod means “moonwalker” in Russian. There were two Lunokhod rovers launched in
1970 and 1973 respectively and were the first remote controlled rovers on the moon. It wasn’t until 1997 than another rover (Mars Pathfinder) was placed on an extraterrestrial body.

NASA's fab @OSIRISREx swings by tomorrow to steal some of Earth's momentum #EarthGravityAssist, so lets chat about sampling the Solar System
Earth’s inventory of planetary materials consists of dust & meteorites that land on Earth, & specimens from sample return missions (SRMs).
The majority of the 50,000+ classified meteorites originate from the asteroid belt between Mars & Jupiter; a few from Vesta, the Moon & Mars
