(1. Touched down in #Dublin🇮🇪earlier today. Good to be in #Ireland for a few days. Been following some commentary on the Consultative Forum closely,disappointed at some of the false binaries we are imposing on ourselves: pro-#NATO/anti-NATO or pro-#neutrality/anti-neutrality.
(2.What we need is better knowledge&depth as well as workable #security options that public want to unify behind & sooner rather than later. Inducing more polarization only weakens #Ireland's national #security further--diametric opposite to what we are looking for.
(3. If politicians, academics&policy experts fail to help in developing options along these lines&if some chose to side-track themselves with bitter disputes or false binaries then I think this will be a big opportunity missed to improve matters & history will be a harsh judge.

📆 #UnDiaComoHoy hace 280 años, fue primera ejecución en el Covent Garden Theatre de la obra más conocida de #Handel: The #Messiah

📆 #23marzo de #1743

🏤 #oratorio #barroco #musicabarroca #CFLC #LopezCapillas #leonardoai
🎼 Aunque El Mesías es hoy en día una de las obras más famosas de Handel, en su época no fue un éxito inmediato, la 1ra presentación de la obra en #Dublín en #1742 fracasó, y no fue sino hasta que Handel la presentó en Londres un año más tarde que ganó popularidad. #leonardoai
La parte más famosa, es el #Hallelujah chorus, pero sorprendentemente, Handel no compuso esta sección para el final de la obra. El #Hallelujah era la conclusión del segundo acto; hasta después de su muerte se convirtió en una tradición interpretarla al final de la obra. 🏤#CFLC

Playing around with applying our method from… for a new project; we can use it to map, e.g., (2016) walking commutes by electoral division in #Dublin using
We can also combine this with our cost-distance method (self-promotion!…) to find the cost of traveling a given distance (based on opportunity cost of travel time, buying walking shoes, etc.) to see where walking infrastructure/service is relatively poor
From this it looks like more suburban/outlying areas (that likely have more disconnected street patterns) are relatively more costly to walk

1) At 05:20hrs this morning, approximately 80 Gardai arrived at Ionad Seán Heuston. Several homeless were arrested and will be before the high courts this morning for breaching a court order prohibiting them from seeking shelter in an abandoned warehouse.
2) @DarraghOBrienTD & @HomelessDublin are responsible for this situation. Not once in four weeks did they attempt to engage with the homeless there to offer alternative accmmo and an exit plan out of homelessness.
3) Instead, we have a massive Gardai operation and expense to the public with a pending court hearing which will see homeless either gaoled or back on the streets. #Housingcrisis #homeless #Dublin @rtenews @thejournal_ie @IrishTimes @DublinLive @fiannafailparty @FineGael

Conversations between #Turtle & #MP
Few days before heading to Ireland, MP is coming home late after working all day on presentations he is invited to give @ECMP2022 in #Dublin, surprised to see his buddy slowing coming up his driveway.

MP: Hey buddy, what are you doing?

MP: It might have taken U some time to come all the way from park

Turtle: Yes doc, I heard U were heading to @TourismIreland island & wanted to join U. Since it would take me more time & I didn’t want to rush, I thought I will come over & rest behind your house till we leave
MP: What do U mean & how did U know?

TL: Well, my 3rd cousin from my mom side who lives in #WicklowMountains close to Dublin told me that you were coming there soon

MP: What, how did she know?

New route numbering with #BusConnects will replace a system of bus numbering which dates back to the original #Dublin #tramways (NLI image from 1947:…) but /1
Route numbers were only introduced in 1918. In the horse tram era, each route had different colour cars and the destination painted on its sides, like this #Rathmines tram on #Westmoreland Street in 1892 (…) /2
Apparently interchangeable destination boards were introduced in c. 1897, then in 1903 roller blind destination scrolls came into use (corner of Grafton/Nassau St,…) /3

La gente está fatal! 🤯

#Dublin, #Irlanda. Se dice que este hombre trató de agarrar a una niña menor, pero los vecinos no lo dejaron ir así como así.🤔

En respuesta al “deseo” fallido y la reacción de los transeúntes, comenzó a "tocarse" en medio de la calle. 🤭
🥁🎺 #Irlanda del Norte, Bandas del ejército desfilan por las calles.

Pero el chico de la casa de enfrente tenía planes de dormir. 😴🤷‍♂️

- Buenas noches y no les deseo #desfiles debajo de su ventana hasta la mañana 😉🤗

#UK #Ucrania #supermoon #Putin
#USA ❗️Mientras tanto, en #Texas, los padres se pelearon por #dulces gratis para sus hijos 🤷‍♂️🍬🍭

Dando ejemplo! 😕

▶️ Documentaire exceptionnel de @KellerSaida sur la façon dont les Frères Musulmans forment des imams en Europe, diffusé au festival de film de #Carthage
Plusieurs fins connaisseurs expliquent les méthodes de l’entrisme des Frères Musulmans:
@BestandjiNaem décrit leur ciblage de la gauche via la stratégie de victimisation et le militantisme islamiste autour du voile;
@djemilaben décrit leur capacité à séduire les européens
.@Maaroufi9 décrit la #Turquie comme une théocratie qui, à l’initiative d’#Erdogan, cherche à influencer par le biais d’organisations et d’instituts de formation, à la fois la classe politique européenne et les musulmans de notre continent

¡Diez cosas que siempre quisiste saber sobre los #vikingos y nunca te atreviste a preguntar!
¡Adentro 🧵!
#Arqueologia #Arte e #Historia de este pueblo de la #EdadMedia escandinava. ¿Salvajes guerreros, intrépidos exploradores o refinados comerciantes?
1⃣ Es posible que os baile la cronología vikinga. Tradicionalmente se usan como inicio y final del periodo dos fechas:
793-Saqueo del monasterio de Lindisfarne (Inglaterra)
1066-Derrota de Harold el Despiadado en la batalla de Stamford
Por tanto, se ubican entre los s.VIII y XI
2⃣ No constituyeron un estado unificado, sino que les unían la lengua (noruego antiguo), la cultura y las creencias religiosas. Suele hablarse de #vikingos daneses, suecos y noruegos, según su ubicación original.

106 years ago, one of #Ireland's giants of #Astronomy, Margaret Lindsay Murray Huggins (1848 - 1915), passed #OnThisDay

#HERstory #STEM #GLobalIrishNation #OTD Margaret Lindsay Huggins
2) Margaret Lindsay Murray was born in #Dublin in 1848 and lost her mother her mother, Helen Lindsay, while still a child. In the absence of her mother, she seems to have developed a shared interest in Astronomy with her paternal #Scottish banker grandfather Robert Murray
3) Margaret seems to have been self educated, delving into #astronomy and developing photographic skills which became important for her future research in astronomical spectrography which involves the examination of light spectrums emitted by planets, stars and nebulae

#Irish artist, Sarah Purser (1848 - 1943) was born #OnThisDay 173 years ago. Her family was prosperous with a background in brewing. Shortly after her birth, her father Benjamin decided to move the family from #Dublin south to Dungarvan in #Waterford

#OTD #BOTD #HERstory Image
2) Sarah would go to finishing school in #Switzerland where she learned to speak French and began painting. On her return to #Ireland she enrolled in the Dublin Metropolitan School of Art and would go on to attend the Académie Julian in #Paris Image
3) In the early 1870s Benjamin’s businesses collapsed and Sarah now had to rely on her ability to generate income from art commissions. While she did some landscape and genre painting, portraiture appeared to be her metier

I discovered something new about humans: how parents name their children reveals info on how many kids they’re planning to have.

Thread on forthcoming paper in #Demography on kids’ names & sexual/fertility norms among #Irish #Catholics

Preprint:… Image
The map shows where Catholic parents chose distinctly Catholic names (Catholic Index) or traditional names (Traditional Name Score) for kids + their total surviving children as of 1911 (Net fertility). Family size highly correlated with Catholic and traditional names.
In 1860, a woman in an industrializing nation like Britain could expect to give birth to 6 children.
By 1940, that number had dropped to 2.
