1. It’s easy to dismiss bills so extreme they won’t pass even in Ohio, but dismissal is the wrong approach. This bill, which prescribed the death penalty for the made up “crime” of “aggravated abortion murder,” has 19 co-sponsors in a state House of 99 members.

#EmptyThePews
2. It also requires doctors to perform a medically impossible procedure. And 1/5 of Ohio’s state representatives are sponsors.

Here’s why it matters that a bill this extreme has this much backing and is generating this much press: it shifts the Overton window.

#FridayThoughts
3. The Overton window is a technical term used by political scientists to refer to what is currently within the realm of political possibility. Things that fall outside it are not part of serious political and social discourse and so have no real possibility of becoming policy.

SCOOP: Walmart dodged tax on nearly $2 billion, according to a whistleblower filing sent to the IRS and leaked to me.

Happy #BlackFriday!

The world's biggest company had a ton of money sitting in Luxembourg—a tax haven—which it wanted to send home. But bringing it straight back would incur a large tax bill. /2
So, in an elaborate maneuver, @Walmart Walmart sent the money to the UK, and then onwards to the US. Once it got there, it pretended the money had never come from Luxembourg, the whistleblower alleged. /3

You probably don't know this, but today (Friday, Nov. 29) is the 'official' #NativeAmericanHeritageDay. The fact that our country has insists on honoring Native peoples on #BlackFriday, which in 2019 is also the anniversary of the Sand Creek Massacre (1864)...

Thread: 1/12
is a testimony to the multi-generational & communal manifestation of white America's perpetration induced traumatic stress (PITS). If there is ever a day in the list of civic religious holidays where Americans are most certain to be distracted/sedated, Black Friday is it.

For this reason, I have attemptied to interject into the consumeristic feeding frenzy of our nation a small dose of #UnsettlingTruths.

I love the cover of our new book. Not only does it incorporate the design of an actual Navajo rug, but I had the honor of meeting

What are the biggest internet players doing for climate change?

I can only see them tangled up in the early aftermath of normalising dehumanisation and misappropriating data and information.

Haven’t seen much investment in promoting best practice from all available sources.
We have used up our carbon budget to stay under +1.5deg ever faster in the past two years.

As more people acquire buying power, we must level out fluctuations in carbon usage. And to do so, we need to start employing best practice now. #BlackFriday

We are completely missing Paris targets, which we just set in 2016. This is unacceptable if we do not want to start preparing for common tragedies triggered by more frequent instability.

When @JumiaNigeria @Jumia_Group says it's shipped from abroad, don't pay money first until you see the goods ooo. The latest #SCAM is to tell you it's shipped from abroad. When you pay your money is gone.
#Nigeria @fccpcnigeria @csm_ng please beware!
They will say it's not there responsibility after you have paid for item to be delivered, that it is @NIPOSTNG but when asking for payment they won't mention it's not there responsibility. Are you aware @fccpcnigeria @csm_ng
A big #SCAM is what @Jumia_Group @JumiaNigeria has become and they are covering up with #blackfriday promo. Be careful what you purchase during this promo! All scam!!

Looking for a DNA Test bargain?

In advance of #BlackFriday and #CyberMonday I wanted to crowdsource #Privacy #Cybersecurity and other risks to consider before buying and doing a consumer DNA test kit.

Using tag #DNAdont a couple to kick us off:
If results show nasty surprises it can be hard to handle.

If data is compromised every close relation can be impacted.

The firm might respect and protect data, but who are their partners, will they one day work with govt or insurers, and what if they get bought out? #DNAdont
Would love Medical Twitter to offer views on consumer DNA test cost vs benefit with big player move to health focus from basic curiosity about genetic relations and roots?

Is quality / potential gain outweighing alternatives and risks? #DNAdont #DNATestKits

Are you getting ready for #BlackFriday or #CyberMonday? What are some things you can do to drive sales? Here are some quick hits... #ecommerce #tips 1/6
Tip 1: Compress those images! Use tools like @jetpack @imagify @cloudinary or @KrakenIO to compress your images so that your pages load faster. When pages take longer than 2 seconds to load, sessions length can get cut in half! 2/6

THREAD: As the trade war drags on, there will be two more rounds of tariffs on imports from China, first on September 1, then on December 15. Here are five things you need to know... (1/7)
1. Trump’s latest escalation will drive up the average US tariff on Chinese imports from its current level of 18.3% to 20% on September 1. The December 15 tariffs will ratchet up average US tariffs on imports from China to 21.4%. (2/7)
2. The September 1 tariff round will directly affect many consumer goods for the first time. Footwear, clothing, and textiles constitute more than a third of the value of the new targets. (3/7)

My latest @OccupyDemocrats

@Fahrenthold's Pulitzer-winning exposé of the Trump Foundation just passed a key legal hurdle that ensures there will be a judgment in the case.

The whole Trump family could be implicated in crimes as a result

*** THREAD ***

This is why the Trump Foundation is an albatross around Trump's neck and probably a centerpiece of the SDNY's criminal investigation into the Trump organization and family.

1/
New York's AG has alleged a major violation of the Federal Elections Campaign Act by the Board - Donald, Ivanka, Eric and Don Jr. - by making a $2.8 million illegal campaign contribution from the Foundation to the Campaign.

1/ Today is #BlackHoleFriday, an annual science outreach event that, by complete coincidence I’m sure, is done on #BlackFriday. You’ll read lots of cool stuff about black holes on the hashtag. Here’s mine.
2/ Black holes are weird. Duh. People like to think of them as something like incredibly dense nuggets of stuff that sucks other stuff in. But they’re not like that.
3/ If you squeeze enough mass into a small enough volume, the gravity gets so intense that it’s impossible to escape them *if you get too close*. From far away, though, gravitationally they more or less act like anything with that much mass.

THREAD: Need a break from #BlackFriday, digging @NASA’s #BlackHoleFriday? Perfect, enjoy our Black Hole 101! ☄️
First the basics. A black hole is a region in space where the pulling force of gravity is so strong that light is not able to escape. Because of this, black holes are invisible. Only telescopes with special instruments can help find them.
There are three main types of black holes. The black hole's mass and size determine what kind it is.
