🧵This article from @nytimes
on #voting machines from ES&S (@essvote) applying for use in #NY focuses on #misinformation.
But what about misinformation from ES&S. Like they lied to @NYSBOE
about where they had pending lawsuits……
Facts about what will happen if #NY uses all-touchscreen #voting machines.
- They will "cost a small fortune to purchase & maintain."
- They cost $10,000 each, double the cost of a standard scanner + you have to buy A LOT more. HIgher costs x more machines = OUCH for taxpayers Image
How many more #voting machines are used w/all-touchscreen (all-BMD) systems?

#BMD = ballot-marking device, All systems have BMDs for voters who want to use them. We don't all need to.

@OSET estimates all-BMD systems require 5 TIMES as many voting machines. Costs go up not down. Image

Regular physical activity in adolescence or youth leads to long term benefits on bone health and body composition

1. Participation in competitive sport at age 13-16 was associated with higher midlife lean mass & bone mineral density (BMD), and better physical performance +
2. compared to no exercise or physical activity.
*However, BMD might be impaired if menarche occurs late (>14 years of age)
#MedTwitter #exercise #BMD
3a. The high level of physical activity in female athletes is associated with improved muscle mass, BMD and bone mineral content (BMC), and physical activity during youth seems to have a beneficial effect on bone mass and helps to prevent bone loss due to aging.

2019 is the 50th edition of the #SIPRIYearbook. Join SIPRI as we celebrate the occasion with a 50-day countdown and share the history of the Yearbook over the past 50 years. Watch the introductory video with SIPRI Director @dansmith2020:
The first #SIPRIYearbook was published in 1969 with the aim ‘to produce a factual and balanced account of a controversial subject—the arms race and attempts to stop it’. The rise in world military spending and disarmament efforts, including the #NPT, take central focus.
'In whatever way the nuclear situation is examined, the inescapable feature is what enormous quantities of weapons have been amassed' – Movement towards a first-strike capability by the #US and #USSR, the #SALT talks and European security were a focus of the 1970 #SIPRIYearbook.

Når folk læser #MissileDefenseReview, og #dkmedier måske skriver om det, så håber jeg, at man forholder sig til det reelle indhold og ikke lader sig styre af, at det er et "Trump dokument", for der er faktisk mange gode ting i det, som jeg vil prøve at skrive lidt om her.
Først og fremmest er det vigtigt at forstå, at #missilforsvar normalt nyder opbakning fra både demokrater og republikanere i Kongressen og at amerikansk politik omkring #missilforsvar ikke oplever de store udsving alt efter hvilken præsident der sidder.

Helt overordnet set er det seneste #MissileDefenseReview en naturlig fortsættelse af Obama administrationens seneste 2010 #BallisticMissileDefenseReview. Der er dog områder, hvor #2019MDR har udviklet sig og adskiller sig ift #2010BMDR, hvilket jeg vil forsøge at beskrive her 👇
