Thank you and farewell @CapMetroATX & #ATX. Serving as CM CEO has been an honor and privilege & I’m so proud of what we accomplished together. We have collaboratively advanced an innovative, sustainable & equitable agenda that will positively transform this community forever. 1/3
As I begin my time at @wmata, I invite everyone to refollow the @CapMetroCEO account and stay current on the great work that Dottie Watkins & the @CapMetroATX team will continue to do connecting #ATX & moving #ProjectConnect forward. 2/3
I'll be taking a little break as I make the move to #DC and settling in.  Looking forward to starting as GM/CEO @wmata on July 25 and will start using this account at that time. Onward!

I'm the DC Chapter co-Lead of @MomsDemand. It's really a lot of work. There's a lot to do in this city and our advocacy is 2-fold. I'm gonna tell you about it. Because there are so many layers. And the past week has almost taken me out of this role.
3 years ago, my then-4 yo was in preK4 at the public school 2 blocks away. I was working full time and shootings were regular national AND local news stories. I was lamenting to a client that as Black Americans, my kids are 10x more likely to die by gun than their white peers.
At that time I didn't think my son was participating in active shooter drills. She told me he was; and she gave me the right words to ask him about it so I could know for sure. That day when picked him up I asked and cried as he gave me the answer I didn't know to assume.

$10B to FUND the police! 🚨👮🏻‍♀️

The investment includes $6.5 billion “in State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund investments over the past year.” 💵

That figure includes over $2 billion to aide police / reduce crime, and $1 billion to help reduce domestic violence…

🪡 1/7
This may be one of the few examples where the Biden Admin has actually done something good… or is it? 🤓💡

The move certainly keeps with his intention to “FUND the police,” which was a theme in his #SOTU address this year… but where?

🪡 2/7 Image
Strangely, this move is NOT something seen as a positive by the Left bc, as we know, they are keen to DEFUND the police. 📉⚠️

Conservatives believe this measure is too-little-too-late as crime rates have been SURGING since the beginning of 2021…

🪡 3/7…

"Those Funny Italians"

Un 🧵 sulle letture deliranti, in #Italia, sugli #InteressiAmericani rispetto all'aggressione militare russa in #Ucraina

Visto da #DC, questo dibattito è veramente lunare. Perché? Questa Amministrazione ha un focus chiaro: la #Cina.
Questo focus porta questa amministrazione a convergere con le priorità degli altri pezzi istituzionali (Congresso, Dipartimento di Stato, Pentagono, etc) del complesso mosaico che orienta la politica estera americana
Tale convergenza, con #Trump, non c'era: Trump era (giustamente) considerato erratico, "transactional" (nell'accezione negativa del termine), "short-sighted" (con buona pace dei cantori italiani che lo vedeva come un maestro di strategia)

Can somebody authenticate if this is legit?

Video allegedly filmed by the shooter uploaded online?

I can’t tell if this is fake or not, honestly.
From OP
How would they find this video? How would it make it online so fast? How do you film a gun from that perspective? It seems like a videogame to me, but it also looks real; and I’m an idiot with this stuff lol…

Julian Assange cannot and will not get a fair trial at the Eastern District Court of VA. It's impossible, the "deck is stacked". It's up to us to get in the streets. @JohnKiriakou

My first #dissertation chapter has been published! The paper focuses on #predation of #urban #wildlife by #cats with recommendations for collaborative data-driven management strategies. Main points are summarized in this #infographic, but more info and paper link in this thread!
We spent 3 years surveying #WashingtonDC for #cats using #trailcams. Whenever we saw an image of a cat carrying prey, we noted the species and location, and added it to our predation database.
So what influences predation rates by #urban #feral cats? We found 2 driving factors: access to cat food and distance to forest edge. Why would cat food increase predation? Supplemental food allows cats to occur at greater densities, amplifying population-level predation!

“Today…we want to lift up whistleblowers.
We want to lift up our political prisoners
because they have been criminalized by a criminal government…by a government that doesn’t respect human rights.” @nofearcoalition
“Mumia Abu-Jamal, Leonard Peltier, Julian Assange
they all said ‘NO!’
You can keep your money because I am choosing my conscience...choosing…that I am a human being not a cog in the capitalist system. And for that they are being tortured”
