(1) #Arkansas has 7 out of the top 10 counties in the United States with the highest rates of Covid per population.
(2) #Tennessee has all 10 counties in the top ten counties with the most Covid deaths per population. Several weeks ago #Tennessee had the most cases in the United States per population. washingtonpost.com/graphics/2020/…
(3) The #DeltaVariant continues to become more and more dominant. It now makes up ~90% of new cases and the old original ancestral virus has been squeezed out of existence in the US. #Covid_19 ourworldindata.org/grapher/covid-…

We’re seeing a rise in pediatric #COVID19 cases. Did we know this was coming? Yes, because: data
I stand by this statement from June 15th
🔥 Pediatric #COVID19 cases are rising. Delays in reporting from counties —> states —> CDC vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. So, if you’re looking at the national level, you’ll be *falsely* reassured. Examples from #Arkansas #California #Georgia #Nevada 👀⤵️

🏳️‍🌈 Ruth Coker Burks 🏳️‍🌈#USA
In 1984, when Burks was 25 and a young mother living in #Arkansas, she would often visit a hospital to care for a friend who had cancer. During one visit, she noticed the nurses would draw straws, afraid to go into one room, its door sealed
by a big red bag. She asked why and the nurses told her the patient had Gay-Related Immune Deficiency (GRID), later known as #AIDS. On a repeat visit, and seeing the big red bag on the door, Burks decided to disregard the warnings and sneaked into the room.
In the bed was a skeletal young man, who told her he wanted to see his mother before he died. She left the room and told the nurses, who said, "Honey, his mother’s not coming. He’s been here six weeks. Nobody’s coming”. Burks called his mother anyway, who refused to come

1/Today my firm filed new #FOIA lawsuit for frm Gov #JimGuyTucker to secure release of records tied to his prosecution as part of infamous Clinton “Whitewater” investigation led by then-Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr back in 1990s.

Total blast from past!
2/The records sought will bring greater public understanding regarding how Office of Independent Counsel pursued criminal charges against Gov Tucker based on provision in Internal Revenue Code that had actually been repealed in December 1986.
3/IRS itself had internally concluded provision was not applicable. These records will corroborate that OIC’s reliance upon repealed IRS provision was done, at least in part, to improperly pressure Gov Tucker into cooperating with Starr’s probe into #PresidentClinton.

@CNN 25 years AFTER the Civil War.
132 years ago ...

"However, in 1888, the struggle was begun by the organization of "white Republican clubs," for the purpose of controlling the county conventions"

— Maud Cuney Hare
@CNN The Lily White Republicans

"He spoke with no bridled tongue of the political OUTRAGES in #Arkansas and #FortBend County, #Texas, and stated that he recognized the fight was to OVERTHROW the Negro Republicans in the State."

#BHM

- Maud Cuney-Hare
@CNN Whenever the "lily-white, conservatives are told that they have to share this space that is ours; share it with an individual or with ideas, experiences, that challenges them; they quickly label that idea, individual, community, a threat, a relativist, a cultural Marxist.

1) This thread will analyse one of my biggest holdings, Kambi Group. Kambi is a B2B sportsbetting provider. The company is listed on First North at Nasdaq Stockholm, ticker: Kambi
2) Kambi’s services include services such as front-end user interface, customer intelligence, risk management, and odds compiling services built on an in-house developed software platform. The majority of their income comes from Europe and the US
3) Kambi was originally spun off from Swedish operator Kindred in 2014. This was an important move to attract new customers as the company gained full independence and integrity over their operations and would no longer have any conflict of interest

A ma connaissance il s'agit du deuxième recul majeur du droit à l'avortement dans le monde pour l'année 2021.

Thread résumant les grandes lignes du droit à l'#avortement aux Etats-Unis et les risques qui pèsent aujourd'hui sur lui.
#Arkansas
Précisons qu'en parallèle de la loi arkansaise, le Texas examine en ce moment même un texte qui sanctionnerait l'IVG de la peine de mort. Rien que ça.
L'autre atteinte majeure de 2021 à l'avortement était l'entrée en vigueur, en janvier, de la loi polonaise restreignant l'IVG au cas de menaces pour la vie de la mère, au viol et à l'inceste.
