A fisking of the opinion piece by Michelle Jongenelis (from the doghouse of @DrOliviaDoll1) in Fairfax media. No public link known (it appeared in a variety of regional newspapers around #Australia).
"THE recent death of a US man who contracted a serious lung disease after taking up #vaping comes as no surprise to many #PublicHealth advocates."
No mention of #BlackMarket, unregulated #cannabinoids, despite 6 US regions involved, explicitly mentioning it.
"Contrary to the messages being disseminated by the vaping industry (an industry now largely owned by #BigTobacco), .."
Wrong! Neither the majority of companies, nor vape sales, involve products ownership by the #TobaccoIndustry.

Reading through @OtherProfGreen summary of the 9th August #UK event, the similarities to the 25th August 2018 #Australian separation event across the #NEM are very interesting to observe.
Firstly, they are all attributed to lightning strikes.

And although the #UK one was easy to identify, the #QLD one took a bit of forensic investigation as it happened at a time that no weather warnings were out for the area.
Both events attribute an initial loss of generation due to disconnection of #distributed #generation #DG

I will get back to this point later, because it is probably the most interesting aspect of both events!!

'Unbreakable': #US wants missiles in Darwin, #Australia - US officials raised the prospect of missiles being deployed to northern Australia to deter China, after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo declared the bond between Australia and the US "unbreakable" afr.com/politics/feder…
Mr Pompeo and Foreign Minister Marise Payne both dramatically ramped up rhetoric against Beijing's attempts to coerce smaller nations, intervene in democracies, militarise the South China Sea and engage in unfair trade practices.
While insisting Australia and other allies did not have to choose between China and the US, Mr Pompeo hit back at advocates who want Canberra to prioritise economic ties with China over defending national security and the rule of law.

#RobertMueller will be testifying before the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees on July 17.

Here are some crucial questions that should be asked when he testifies (Thread 👇). | Article by Jeff Carlson @themarketswork theepochtimes.com/33-key-questio…
1) Did #AttorneyGeneral Barr in any way misrepresent your 448-page report?

#Mueller failed to identify the grand jury info in the #MuellerReport. Barr noted that “it immediately meant that you know it was going to be a period of weeks before we could get the report out.”
2) Who actually wrote Volume I and Volume II of the #MuellerReport?

At this point, it isn’t known with certainty if #Mueller had any hand in writing the report directly, or if he simply served in an oversight capacity.

Hundreds of women have tried to escape #Saudi Arabia in recent years, fleeing the strict male guardianship laws that control every aspect of their lives. These are the stories of some of those women via @Sophiemcneill @4corners abc.net.au/news/2019-02-0… #EndMaleGuardianship
All women fear the Dal Al Reaya — the state-run institutions where women who resist the male guardianship system or ‘shame’ their families often end up. Even women who go to the police to report a crime can be sent here. #EndMaleGuardianship All women fear the Dal Al Reaya — the state-run institutions where women who resist the male guardianship system or 'shame' their families often end up. Even women who go to the police to report a crime can be sent here. Their only way out is if a male guardian comes and collects them. Sometimes women locked in the Dal Al Reaya will agree to marry perfect strangers as a way of leaving.
In order to escape #Saudi Arabia, women need permission from their male guardian to travel. Saudi Arabia's far-reaching controls over women extend online, where men are able to grant travel permissions through a government-run app called Absher. #EndMaleGuardianship

Good morning Twitter! I move to Australia today! 1 like/retweet of this tweet = 1 thing you (maybe) didn't know about Australian #sharks.
Alright, let's get this party started: First, numbers aren't 100% accurate but anywhere from 170-190 species of #sharks call Australian waters home. That's a lot, seeing as how there are roughly 500-ish species.
According to the Australian Government's Department of Environment and Energy, of those 170-190 species, around 70 are thought to be endemic. Endemic means "native to a specific region or environment and not occurring naturally anywhere else."
