BREAKING: #BNNUS Reports.

A Connecticut man is facing charges after allegedly abandoning a premature baby on the hood of a stranger's car earlier this year. #ChildAbuse #USA #Connecticut #Crime Image
Jorge Grados, 41, was charged with intentional cruelty to persons and endangering a child. Troopers said they were called in March to investigate reports of a baby wrapped in a towel left on the hood of a woman's car.
“The female reported as she returned to her vehicle, the male got into a dark-colored vehicle and fled the area,” Connecticut State Police said earlier this year in a news release.

1. A #Sikh friend from #Norwich #Connecticut sent me these photos. Apparently, an Indian American Sikh group made a digital presentation in front of the Norwich City Hall against Mayor Peter A Nystrom, accusing him of supporting and promoting supporters of #Khalistan terror group
2. Messages called on Mayor Nystrom to focus on the issues of #Norwich, including lack of development and an alarming opioid crisis, instead of supporting agendas of extremist groups that were responsible for one of the worst airline bombings in the world. (Kanishka bombing)
3. Friend told me that despite being a small town, Norwich has been facing infrastructure issues with power outages in the past month. Most people in the town he spoke to told him that were completely unaware of who #Khalistanis were and why the Mayor would be promoting them.

2022 #Midterms Simulation: #ArtoftheGerrymander

A Republican House win will be built on gerrymanders (TX/GA/FL/TN/LA, etc.)

To illustrate the need for fair maps, I'm calculating the results using the 2022 votes, but if every state had a Democratic gerrymander. #ElectionTwitter ImageImageImageImage
Methodology:

I’ll apply the difference in Presidential margin to the House result. Thanks @davesredist @mikemathieu @vest_team + @DKElections @PoliticsWolf

Keen to see how my maps perform over the decade; tried to comply with state law if partisan intent were allowed to stand.
#ArtoftheGerrymander: #Alabama
Trump 62.0% - Biden 36.6%
Real delegation: 6R-1D
Gerrymandered: 5R-2D
Δ Share of D seats: 14% => 28%
Easy Democratic pick-up of a safe new African American seat.

THANK YOU election officials/poll workers/volunteers who worked & continue to work to ensure that #Midterms2022 are carried out successfully. Nationally this election has been free of major issues, and Americans should feel confident about the voting/vote counting process. Image
While many are focused on the horse race for control of #Congress it is worth noting that #Midterms2022 produced a number of pro-democracy gains through ballot initiatives, many of which received strong majority support. #DemocracyWins
#Arizona: The “Voters Right to Know Act” (Prop. 211) brings transparency to elections by requiring election spenders to disclose the original sources of their funding. Thank you @TerryGoddardAZ for leading on this effort. thehill.com/homenews/campa…

Please put yourself in my shoes: it’s a typical day of scrolling Facebook while not having a single thought about Jim Carrey. Image
Until you stumble upon a curious People magazine article concerning the suicide of Cathriona White, Jim Carrey’s ex: people.com/movies/jim-car…
This article prompts you to remember a scene from Batman Forever when The Riddler stages his boss’ murder as suicide, and as well Jim Carrey having a real life obsession with the number 23 — years before his 2007 movie came out. (Batman Forever scene: )

Today’s newsletter from my Congressman @jahimes: remembering #Stonewall
#TrueBlue #Connecticut
Dear Friends,
Fifty-three years ago, Stonewall Inn, a gay club in New York City, was the subject of a police raid: a pattern of explicit prejudice and bigotry targeting the LGBTQ+ community.
The subsequent riots are considered the catalyst of the United States’ gay rights movement. For that reason, we celebrate June as Pride Month. Pride in the joy and diversity found in the LGBTQ+ community,

Where are these non-COVID excess deaths coming from? CDC data is updated on weekly basis. As more data comes in, the predicted data becomes closer to the reported data.
data.cdc.gov/NCHS/Excess-De…
#excessdeath #NoVaccinePassportsAnywhere #Connecticut #Vermont #NYC #NewJersey #COVID19 Image
While total excess deaths (including COVID) are comparable between last winter and this winter. It is clear that something else is driving excess death this year among these states. Image
The data shown in the table is from November 2020 to February 6, 2021 (last winter) and November 2021 to February 6, 2022 (this winter). It was mistakenly written in the column heading as Dec 6 which will be February 6.

👏👏👏 "Phone rates for prisoners will drop down to 21 cents per minute down from 91 cents per minute. The move comes as part of a mandate from the @FCC requiring lower fees for prisoner phone calls." #PhoneJustice

"A 2014 study of incarcerated women found that those who had any phone contact were less likely to be reincarcerated within the five years after release. In fact, phone contact had a stronger effect on #recidivism compared to visitation." #PhoneJustice

You Know You're From #Connecticut When...

You have hiked up a big hill or small mountain at least once for a keg party.

You never went to a bar in high school.

You thought that the only highways were 91 and 84.

You thought everyone couldn't buy beer after 8 pm
You have been to Misquamicut and to that little hot dog place.

There is a farm within miles of your house.

You don't have an accent when you talk. #Truth!
You have known at least 2 preppy rich kids from Fairfield who listen to Phish.
Disclaimer: I’m from Fairfield and I’ve never listened to Phish. But yes, even back in the dark ages I knew a lot of preppy kids in high school.

Monday's #Covid19 thread starts here. Still holidays around the world for many, including #UK. But here all eyes on Boris Johnson - will he, or won't he make more restrictions or even lockdown? We should know today.

I've got more hospital data in the thread, updated real time..
So let me start with #UK. I've managed to get new health data, which will be critical to the decision on new restrictions in #England

As of y'day there were 7,536 #Covid19 patients in English hospitals; up 17.1% in a week.

But 2,425 of those are in London and that's up 45.5%
Strangely, South-East & South-West areas of #England have fewer #Covid19 patients in hospital.

Occupied hospital beds by region (weekly change):

#London 2,425 +46%
#Midlands 1,345 +17%
#East 681 +16%
#NorthWest 945 +8%
#Yorkshire/NE 847 +3%
#SouthEast 803 -2%
#SouthWest 490 -5%

I tweeted that we are in an #Omicron surge in NYC, but then studied today's data here 👇🏽gothamist.com/news/coronavir…
Mea culpa for sloppy reference to Omicron.
Thread follows based on these numbers
2/First of all, averaging 27,000 new #COVID19 cases/day is not sustainable -- even if fewer than 2% of them require a clinical visit or hospitalization. It's the Holidays, staffing is low, and staff is burned out. If caseloads double by Christmas, hospitals will be full.
MORE Image
3/ The difference in #COVID19 incidence-by-immunization-rate now in NYC is striking. Vaccination may not offer 100% protection against infection, but it's clearly of enormous benefit.

Hi folks! Welcome to a bare-bones #Pennsylvania #MoCTrack for the week ending 10/31/21.

Since it is so close to #ElectionDay2021 (which should be your focus), I’m just going to run down the votes and quotes, with basic links.
#MoCTrack 1/20
Full Report- bit.ly/3BwI59Y
The House passed a bill to fund shelters and programs to address #DomesticViolence.

Over 95% of #GOP MoCs voted No on this. #Shame.

8 of 9 #Pennsylvania GOP MoCs were NO votes, only #PA01's @RepBrianFitz voted YES.
#MoCTrack 2/20
govtrack.us/congress/bills…
In case you were wondering why all those #GOP House members voted NO a #DomesticViolence prevention bill? This portion from the speech of Rep. Bob Good of Virginia gives you an idea.

The bill passed, thankfully.
