1/ #BREAK I just spoke to my source in Kobani, NSyria, which is under fire by Turkish army. He told me something incredible:

Acc to him, 1000s of Kurds from Kobani are right now fleeing to a US military base near Lafarge cement factory, to seek US soldiers' protection.

@akhbar
2/ I couldn't speak for too long to my source as he himself was also busy fleeing Kobani and heading to the U.S. military base.

As we spoke over phone, he was putting his wife & kids in his car. He said Kobani is on the move, comparable to 2014 when ISIS attacked city.

@akhbar
3/ My source in Kobani said to me: "If Americans don't come to protect us, then we will go to them for protection."

Personally I don't know if there are still US soldiers present at that base near Lafarge factory. But clearly many Kurds hope to find protection there.

I just received this short clip from Northern Syria. A Turkish helicopter flying over Qamishli.

One of my sources filmed it today around 1730 hr local time. She just sent it to me. Clip short because net is slow. She said people are terrified. No one know what to do.

Women and the public as a whole must acknowledge that glass ceiling exists.
If ot is not acknowledged first, hardly will it be address it.
• if the awareness is there , then they should make conscious effort to break it.

#SGBV #SDG5 #MyGenderPledge #Peace #WomenAfricaCVE
-More importantly, women must believe in themselves that they can break the #glass
• it is also important that they develop and market their skills in order to enhance their social value.
•Women must be proactive and take opportunities as they come
#SGBV #SDG5 #MyGenderPledge
Finally women must act as support systems for each other, by not keeping silent when they realize a fellow woman is struggling to break the #break the glass.

#BREAK This evening Facebook suspended a group of Russian-backed Facebook pages with millions of video views, some targeting American millennials. The pages didn’t disclose their Russian ties (but Facebook’s rules don’t say they have to). @CNN

cnn.com/2019/02/15/tec…
Here’s what some of the pages look like. The biggest page is @IntheNow_tweet with more than 3 million followers.
The pages appear to have fallen into a gray area for Facebook.

WOW: Kamala Harris and Senate Democrats interrupt Chuck Grassley's introduction of Brett Kavanaugh over all the withheld White House documents on the nominee.

They're calling to adjourn the hearing. Chaos in the chamber.
Cory Booker and other are calling for a vote on adjourning. Grassley, stone-faced, doesn't recognize him and just pounds on his gavel.
Cory Booker and Kamala Harris intervening so early is symbolic: They're not only the most-junior members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, they're also the body's first two black senators... ever.

#BIN Y esto es así, porque en nuestro ADN venezolano hay un componente donde reside el segundo principio heredado de la época colonial: "Dios está en el cielo, el rey está lejos y YO MANDO AQUÍ". No es nueva nuestra tragedia, es que la lucha entre civilización y barbarie continúa
#CivilizaciónContraBarbarie.-
111. #Derecho es un conjunto de normas, escritas o no, de carácter general, útiles para dirigir a la sociedad, a fin de solventar conflictos y evitar la autoinjusticia y la imposición de la "ley del más fuerte". Es decir, para evitar la barbarie...
#CivilizaciónContraBarbarie.-
112. Es decir, donde no existe el #Derecho, existe la barbarie. El Derecho es el camino establecido para tratar de encontrar esa quimera, más valiosa que #ElDorado, llamada #Justicia. Cuando se tuerce el derecho, se actúa enloquecido como #Aguirre...

No evidence: the drug wore off, he used a condom, she woke up confused and drove home after the humiliating conversation. They were friendly the day before and she accepted his offer to stay over instead of taking the road so late. No witnesses. The perfect #crime. #FicFri
Overdose survived. She flirted with him until he invited her over again. She denied him nothing in bed, she was #obsequious. “I’ve got a surprise”, she said, and massaged his feet as he sipped the wine she gave him. He died of sepsis a week later. #vss365 #AmWriting
“He committed #treason against the sacred dojo. He disgraced the sport”, they said. “Perhaps. I am still going to the cremation ceremony. We must protect our art and not speak ill of a dead coach”, she said. “If he has a #soul, it will burn in hell”, they said. #FP #FridayKiss
