@Leolucassen De vreemdeling opvang in de EU werkt als een magneet en hoe graag je ook de hele wereld wil uitnodigen op je feestje er zullen strengere regels voor toelating moeten komen. En onbegeleide minderjarige is er een van, want dit leidt tot gezinsherenigingen Image
@Leolucassen In 2021 waren 183.600 asielzoekers jonger dan 18 jaar. Bijna 13% van hen (23.300) waren niet-begeleide minderjarigen. De meeste niet-begeleide minderjarigen kwamen uit Afghanistan, Syrië en Bangladesh.
Het is beter deze kinderen op te vangen in de regio.
@Leolucassen Ook in #Duitsland 🇩🇪 zullen maatregelen getroffen worden om #migrantenstroom drastisch te beperken.…

Here's one for you. The government, the media, and the medical establishment didn't panic and abandon all their principles at the start of the COVID pandemic and everything they did was "by the book" and totally necessary.

Oh, sorry, #AprilFools 🧵
On February 28, 2020, Dr. Anthony Fauci of NIAID, Dr. Clifford Lane of NIH & Dr. Robert Redfield of the CDC published "COVID-19- Navigating the Uncharted" saying the consequences of Covid-19 "may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe influenza."…
They further suggest "mitigation techniques" may include isolating ill persons, school closures, and telecommuting where possible. #commonsense

Today I'd like to discuss about the mental model "Map is not the territory."

As Charlie Munger says, "The map is not the territory, and if you start thinking that the map is the territory, you will pay a big price for that."

#MentalModel #CharlieMunger Map Is Not the Territory - Charlie Munger
2/ This means that the way we perceive and interpret the world may not always match reality. A map is just a representation of reality and it's important to keep that in mind when making decisions.

3/ Charlie Munger and Warren Buffet used this mental model to evaluate their investments. They would always look beyond the numbers and do a deep dive into the company's culture, management, and future prospects.

Since there have been a lot of 401(K) propaganda floating around the internet of late. I decided to create a thread 🧵 with the benefits
1. Tax-Deferred Earnings:
When you contribute a percentage of your pay to a 401(k) plan, you immediately start paying less to Uncle Sam. That's because your contribution comes out of your paycheck before income taxes are deducted. That means your taxable income is less.
2. Matching Contributions:
Many employers will match a portion of your savings. It's like passing up free money if you don't participate.

So you're talking to your doc about the use of a ketogenic diet to treat your mental illness, and they basically tell you that they are dangerous. What to do? 🧵(1/10)
Some physicians are misinformed and believe there are concerns over cardiovascular risk, decreased bone health, and strain on the kidneys. (2/10)
However, there is no good evidence to support these claims. In fact, some studies suggest the opposite. Once again, I am sorry for the inconvenience, but you are going to have to educate them and self-advocate. (3/10)

@MarcusBlimi 🤔🤔🤔

Is 100% 'undervaccinated'??

Whooping cough outbreak closes Texas school despite 100-percent vaccination rate: officials…
@MarcusBlimi And this - 100% of cases in this outbreak were vaxxed……
@MarcusBlimi Clearly, disease outbreaks can also happen in fully vaccinated areas

And oddly enough, somehow spared the few unvaccinated students (although this isn't exactly statistically significant by itself but is a bit of an odd result to say the least)

The Trudeau Liberals always fail:
-to be accountable
-to be transparent
-to protect freedom
-to do what's best for Canadians

Conservatives are fighting for common sense, because that's what Canadians want! @NDP

Well, I got 2 messages before 9am from friends telling me they have #COVID19 in their households. And in the 12 mins since, I’ve just heard about 4 more. So Merry Exponential Growth #Omicron #Christmas. 🌲 😫

A quick 🧵 on what to do if that’s you since I’m typing it anyway.
1/ The first thing to say is that if someone has #COVID19 symptoms (#Omicron most common: nasal congestion/runny nose, scratchy sore throat, fever, & aches), you have to assume they have it. You may not have a test (urgent cares are still open & do) or they may still be neg.
2/ You, as the person exposed to the one with symptoms, have to assume that you both do & don’t have #Omicron too. Wait, what? 🤔

I mean: assume you could infect others now & take care to avoid exposing them, BUT don’t assume it’s too late for you to avoid getting it.

Be proud of who you are.

Anyone who calls a socialist an enemy of ordinary people is an enemy of ordinary people – because socialism is precisely about protecting ordinary people.

Lie about that and what else will you lie about?

Anyone who calls a socialist an enemy of the economy is an enemy of the economy – because any fool knows the economy's real enemies are those who strip away its assets and hoard away its wealth.

Ok so I'm done with the write-up on the #RishtaTrolley System, a #TwitterSpace on which was hosted a couple hours ago by @fay_alif
Hang on guys, this is going to be lengthy (but super useful).

@fayalif recently hosted a space on the topic of #RishtaTrolley system, which first made me feel irked, but then curiosity (more like #FOMO) got the better of me.

So join, I did.
Quite a few people were sharing their experiences, and opinions on a few related / sub topics as well. And it was a well managed space, maza aya to be part of this online baithak. This thread covers most of what was discussed and shared there.

“Violence,” you say, “is the last refuge of the incompetent.”
I can only agree. It’s a great saying. Whose is it?
“Isaac Asimov, I think. I’m not sure.”
The science fiction writer?
I love the guy. He said a lot of great stuff. Have spacesuit. Will travel.

“No, that was Heinlein.”
Ah. Right-wing libertarian Heinlein. I loved a lot of his stuff, too. Starship Troopers. Stranger In A Strange Land. Shame he was a right-wing libertarian.

“He was probably ok with violence, too.”
Shifting back to the topic of violence….
“Shall we?”
Why not? I agree with you.
“With me or Isaac Asimov?”
Either. Both.

Global Citizen #storytelling w/ #Greta™️

Youth populations, largely impervious to #COVID19, should avoid the experimental jab at all costs.

#Commonsense over influencers serving capital.

Sidenote: #JohnsonandJohnson is a #GlobalCitizen core partner.
Q: "What is this content piece?"

A: "Our journalism-based, reported stories keep Global Citizens all over the world informed on the important advancements of achieving the #GlobalGoals."

"Global Goals", also known as UN #SDGs must be recognized/understood as #emergingmarkets.
The #WorldEconomicForum officially partnered with the United Nations on June 11, 2019. It now serves at the helm of implementation of the "#GlobalGoals".

#3: "Good #Health & Well-being". Trillions are riding on the vaccine market & future of #biotech. This chart is from 2016.

Lie about that and what else will you lie about?

Lie about socialism and it’s likely you don’t give a f*** about ordinary people; you’re just a puppet of the establishment, a mouthpiece of the toffs.

The #Hungarian🇭🇺parliament has just adopted a new Constitutional admendment on marriage&family:

“The foundation of the family is marriage and the parent-child relationship.

[NEW:]The mother is a woman,the father is a man.”

This is how a postmodern rebellion looks like,I guess?
The above-quoted Section 1 also says:

#Hungary protects the institution of #marriage as the association between a #man and a #woman and the #family as the basis for the survival of the nation."

“Every high civilization decays by forgetting obvious things.” (G.K. Chesterton)
You keep asking me about the conditions of moving to Hungary.🇭🇺I can only encourage these noble intentions! Beautiful architecture,great wines,(almost completely) free of wokeness and (it's becoming a real plus,Western European friends will confirm) it's safe to walk at night too

1/ This kind of deliberately divisive and misleading headline about "woke foods" is transparent and deliberate misinformation. CTV is doing @erinotoole's propaganda work. Telling lies like this, promoting race hate and misinformation ought to be punished. Image
2/ Long story short: @WholeFoods tried to ban red poppy badges to support its (actually inexcusable) US ban on visible BLM support, and here, the media and their conservative paymasters are: lying, making it out to be 'leftist' #WokeFoods bullies trying to ban poppies. Image
3/ @fordnation is boycotting @WholeFoods , because "little people" should totally care that the scumbag #premier who won't protect Ontarians from small business and home evictions is boycotting @JeffBezos the insipid, guillotinable billionaire who exploits millions. Image

Here are some important interventional cardiology algorithms I've compiled over the past couple of years. The good IC/CTO operator always knows what the next step is. Major credit to @esbrilakis for many of these algorithms. Must think systematically about every PCI. 1/
Very nice algorithm on tough to wire vessels. Important techniques to know: Use of SuperCross (only use 120/they tend to straighten out), Hairpin wiring technique, deflection balloon, and probably most importantly, appropriate wire shape. 2/
A suggested algorithm on use of hemodynamic support in PCI. 3/

Police brutality is abhorrent, but #PsyOpBob played no innocent roll. Everybody there knew he wanted to cause trouble, and was calling him out. He brought a helmet, but did he put it on when the cops came? No, but he put on a mask. #BuffaloPD #SocialEngineering #CivilWar
I've seen many a #CrisisActor, but this guy is a like their stunt double. Sure, he probably did hit his head, but it was "all for the cause". I don't buy the fake blood thing. That would make the cops actors too...
which ain't that far of a stretch considering whackness out here.
I have no idea who to trust any more, but I definitely know who not to trust. So if this is going down, I'm going to support the guy who lets me defend myself form the #LiberalZombieApocalypse, with force if necessary.
I'm Packin' #MAGA for my protection.

This behavior by #MinneapolisPolice Officers is not about subduing a suspect, it’s about teaching a lesson. The Lesson is #compliance.

Here is how #GeorgeFloyd could have survived his detention and arrest:

- Yes, obviously: Get off his neck.
(Step by step, as follows)
Step 1- Use both hands to hold #GeorgeFloyd in place. By placing both hands in the middle of his back, just below his shoulders.
Keeping pressure on him and allowing the officer to change positions.

Step 2- If #GeorgeFloyd became combative, Officer #2 could have intervened...

"Don't make a political advisor not respecting the policies he officially advocates political" they say
As in "Where wld the world go if policy makers had to abide by what they advocate"?
Also -since when is it political not to be OK with someone willingly risking to kill others?
Since when is it OK for members of govt to try to peddle the "Oh but he had no other choice/It was the responsible thing to do" rhetoric?
Whatever version of the story, he had other choices, endangered others -starting with his own family- &went with a fake self-isolation story.
