Horrific. A gunman wearing military-style clothing and body armor kills at least 10 people at a supermarket in #Buffalo, #NewYork#racism, misogyny, lax regulations and #gunviolence are interlinked. US policymakers are equally responsible! #endgunviolence apnews.com/article/buffal…
I live in upstate NY and visit the local #Topssupermarket — I have seen young men dressed as military personnel. The #Buffalo #shooting is just a chilling reminder that U.S. civilians own 400 million #guns —almost half of civilian held firearms globally.
120+ guns/ 100 residents
In 2015 @MotherJones published a special investigation detailing the cost of #gunviolence:$229 billion a year (2012 data). $8.6 billion in direct spending—emergency/medical care & $221 billion in “indirect” costs, quality of life of victims.

1/ Dear all, before everyone freaks out complete re the #supply #disruption of #natural #gas to #poland and #bulgaria which was initiated by #gazprom yesterday, i thought i'd make a little explanatory thread.
2/ first, consider poland. it exports about 10 bn m3 annually from russia. Image
3/ however, natural gas is not so important for its primary energy supply. poland still heavily depends on #coal, in particular for its electrical energy production. Image

The relationship between Florida & Disney started
in 1965 when Walt began buying up worthless swampland in what was then the middle of nowhere

Disney wanted land, power, and control and they wanted it cheap!
linkedin.com/pulse/story-wa… #disney #florida #reedycreek #politics #news
Wasn't just cuz Walt wanted to build another Theme-Park,

“Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow”
or EPCOT

Disney wanted to build a self-sustaining 'imagineered' city where folks would live, work & play under the auspices of Disney
milwaukeeindependent.com/syndicated/cit… #disney #epcot
So under that premise, the Florida Legislature let Disney have independent autonomy under the

Reedy Creek Improvement Zone

Where Disney would be its own county gov, run its own police, fire, sanitation, etc without any of that messy local political oversight #disney #florida

⚡️.@mod_russia: 🇷🇺carries out purposeful & coordinated work to evacuate civilians & foreign citizens from dangerous areas, and also carries out large-scale measures to provide assistance to the #Donetsk and #Lugansk people's republics, as well as to people in 🇺🇦-controlled areas.
⚡️.@mod_russia: Every day from 10:00 (Moscow time), 🇷🇺opens humanitarian corridors in the Kharkov, Lugansk, Donetsk and Crimean directions towards #Russia. In addition, 🇷🇺 is ready to deploy humanitarian corridors in any other directions & ensure the safe evacuation of civilians.
⚡️.@mod_russia: Of the ten humanitarian corridors announced by the 🇺🇦 Ukrainian side for the current day, there are none towards #Russia in the #Donetsk, #Dnepropetrovsk and #Zaporozhye directions.

TY @innodim for inviting me to speak! My cognitive PEM wouldn’t let me be great but I appreciate her encouragement & summary! Want to be sure my main points are clear in re to Black Maternal #Mental Health, Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders #PMADs, & disparities.#AIMART #BMHW22
I am no expert, so I'll share what I know. Black mothers are more at risk of #PMADs & are less likely to receive treatment b/c the structural social & economic inequities as a result of #antiBlack #racism & #misogynoir in this white supremacist patriarchal society.#BMHW22
“Close to 40% of Black mothers will suffer from postpartum depression [(PPD)]” OR ‘Systemic racism & sexism harm Black mothers which manifest as PPD for a reported ~40%.’ Addressing these risk factors associated w PMAD is key:
Lack of access to high-quality medical care

I'm a #Black Gay Jew. #VotingRights are under attack,synagogues are being attacked, Nazis are here, #HBCUs being threatened, Black& #Jewish &Gay authors are seeing our books banned under false pretense.some schools will ban discussion of LGBTQ issues. We are hurting. Im hurting.
There's a difference between that sanctimonious bullshit about "victimhood," (imma tell you how to feel after making your life hell) and living under constant pressure from people who don't like you just for being who you can't help but be.
I am worried about everyone. Immigrants from Haiti and Latin America, disabled folks ignored in this COVID era, Muslim families split apart, women losing rights, equal pay and authority over their own bodies, trans ppl feeling unsafe. People are still hungry&homeless.

One of the most disheartening aspects of our #JUSTICE4LAMELLO protest were the racist hecklers who flipped me off and called me a n***er as I held a photo of the slain 3 month old baby.

This is a stain on the @CityofGulfport. Gulfport Police Chief Chris Ryle has shown a pattern of citing “investigative material” when asked to provide public records requests regarding police involved shootings. I have obtained the General Orders via MBI.

cdn.fbsbx.com/v/t59.2708-21/…
I cited several violations of police policy by law enforcement agencies regarding de-escalation procedures and deadly use of force. The lack of transparency surrounding the shooting of 3 month old #LaMelloParker raises grave concerns for lawmakers community leaders.

(@manijadegarcia) #Compassion thread here, discussing ideas for survival, stress management, joy & healing using the acronym ACCESS to organize the ideas.

Be back after a break to dig in! 🥰

[QT]

1/
(@manijadegarcia) #Compassion to me is like creating welcoming, gentle internal space for the things I am #accepting—so I can be curious instead of judgemental about them. I'm reminded of indigenous views of trauma as "wisdom" & a "teacher," that can lead us to healing.

2/
(@manijadegarcia) #compassion & #acceptance are closely related in my experience, like a bi-directional positive correlation, (increasing either can increase the other—try not to get hung up on stats "rules.") & #SelfCompassion is super powerful for general #MentalWellness.

It has never been my desire to be someone who constantly has to call people/orgs out. Because believe me, I am far, far from perfect. But sometimes you try to work from within & folx tell you to STFU…leaving you no choice. A thread, & I’ma need serious signal boosting, please./1
Again, I TRIED to resolve this w/the individuals & the orgs most centrally involved. But that just resulted in me being gaslighted by @FamilyVoices & accused of “vilifying” others when all I wanted was equity for #ActuallyAutistic #Black parents/self-advocates./2
Recently, @FamilyVoices was awarded a $250,000 @PCORI grant designed to build capacity in the Black #autism community w/regard to engaging in research. Which is VERY much needed. Yay. Or so I thought…/3

I'm not doing it anymore. I'm not doing bad-faith arguments about #adoption with people who don't want to hear it. "Would you rather have been raised by your drug addict mother?" She was not an addict (a *very* overused assumption of first mothers) and yes, I'd have...
...rather been raised by her, had she had access to the financial and social supports that she needed.
"Would you rather have been aborted?" No, and if it doesn't horrify you that adoption and abortion exist in this either/or binary, you don't know enough about...
...the realities of adoption *and* quite frankly you are not very creative or intellectually flexible.

"Well, what do you suggest, then?"

What's wrong with Biostatistics is analogously related to the question that was put by the Queen to the Economists at the LSE after the GFC.
The Queen wondered why didn't the economists see it coming?
of course, health pandemics are different, but, the statistical models are not
Scholars working in the biomedical sciences, epidemiology, and #biostatistics spheres, rely on mathematical and applied statistical computing based on modelling assumptions that rely on historical data set observations.
The past cannot and will predict the future with certitude.
Even with Quantum Computing, Data Sciences, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, or any other form of computer-aided Predictive Analytics, scholars across the domains of natural and social sciences will never be able to capture the emergence of rare #Black #Swan #Risks!

Understand Why The Migrant Fulani Opts To Dominate The Indigenous Tribes Wherever.

*You cannot do things with the Fulani if you do not understand the Fulani*
The Fulani were originally all Berbers. A slightly darker Arab tribe who Arabs treated with contempt. Most Berbers were forced to flee from North Africa by the full-blooded Arabs. Driven into the desert.

Arabs are not a monolithic people. They are made up of many tribes.
Saudi Arabia alone has 35 tribes who do not understand each other’s language. Berbers are to be found in large numbers from Morocco to Libya. Tunisia, to be an IT powerhouse, managed to flush out almost all its own Berbers. Only 5,000 Berbers remain in Tunisia. There is a reason
