Glad to see new guidance published in the last few days on using #restorativepractices online (virtual circles) to support students and colleagues through #COVID19. There is, it turns out, much we can do virtually at this time... (Thread)
I've participated in two weekly virtual circles, facilitated by @EmmaAWheatley. These have focused on helping youth workers and others in North-East Inner City Dublin discuss their challenges and finds ways to support young people in this time. #youthwork #Dublin #NEIC
This week, I'll facilitate virtual circles to check-in with our second- and third-year undergrad #criminology students @MaynoothUni @MaynoothLaw. We'll see if virtual circles can help regain some of the connection we've lost by not being on campus together.

20 years ago, I was an inveterate traveller, happy to have all my possessions in storage, ready to go anywhere in the world with very little notice.
When 9/11 happened, + planes around the world were grounded, my 1st reaction was selfish: I mourned the fact...
...that I seemed to be about to lose access to the world, and my freedom to travel might be curtailed.
Now in my 50s, with a family, I'm re-experiencing that sense of loss, as #covid19 grounds planes and closes borders.
This weekend, I saw somebody in a park with a cloth bag from a #Dublin bookstore named The Winding Stair, and felt a pang of loss: this shop, unknown to me, was, by the force of things, likely to remain so, for weeks, months, maybe forever...

THREAD: 1/n. I have a self-quarantined central #Ohio client who was on the #CarnivalValor cruise with this man. I believe that our #Columbus community needs to know of her experience with #Carnival and @OHdeptofhealth.

I will be updating this thread as I find out more.
2/ My client is female, between 45-50 years old. Before I continue, people should know that she has been in public places in central #Ohio for days. She found out from a friend this morning who had seen this morning's @ColumbusHealth #COVID19 announcement. Places she's been:
3/ Sunday March 9th: @Costco at #Polaris; #Costco in #PlainCity; #Aldi in #Delaware.

Wed. March 12th, after work: @TommysPizzaOhio but not yet sure which location.

Today's 4km commute:

Aggressive middle aged man driving aggressively at back wheel, revving engine, beeping, slapping outside of his car door bcoz I was cycling defensively to avoid being doored on my left, & to prevent him from close passing on the right on a narrow street 1/9
When confronted I asked him if he knew it was a 30km zone.. "was barely doing 25km.." Exactly I said, 30km is a limit not a target. I'm doing 25km, hang back, wait, have patience before you kill someone.. "But ur in the middle of the road.." I am & with good reason I said.. 2/9
The driver's needless aggressiveness continued. Another male passing by started heckling me. "Just ignore him..He's doing nothing wrong.." Are u blind to aggressive behaviour or are u just indifferent to it as it doesn't effect you? Should I just accept abuse from angry men? 3/9

Brexitploitation: Warum fühlen wir uns, ganz objektiv, hier wie in New York oder auf einem anderen nicht-europäuschen/europäischen Pflaster? Der Skandal in #Brüssel ist doch sein klein Paris. Jedes "Ça va?" klingt brutalst undeutsch. Nicht der Sprache wegen.
Weil es alles das in einem Echo konnotiert, was (bürgerlich-citoyengeprägte) demokratische Tradition nach 1789 bedeutet. "Aus CITROËN wird ZITRÖN Ab jetzt gibt es CITROËN auch in deutsch". "Klassierung" aber selbstredend auch hier. Niemand muss EUbürger sein. Die Festung
deligierte mit den #Dublin-Abkommen die Grenzsicherung mit Flüchtlingsabwehr an das periphere EU-Europa. Jeder weiß, was das grüne Licht Frankreichs für ein "Großdeutschland" 1988/90 bedeutete. Die #Bundespolizei (der Ex-Grenzschutz und erste deutsche Armee nach 1945)

Marino crescent, Marino - Another long thread, but worth it. Built in 1792 by Charlie Ffolliott, basically as a giant “f**k you”, resulting in the row of houses to be called ‘Spite Row’ or ‘Spite Crescent’. The reason for this? One James Caulfield, The Earl of Charlemont...(1/12)
the owner of the Casino in Marino, who really liked his views! Ill do a piece on the Casino at a later date, but suffice it to say, Caulfield had built the Casino so he could view out across his magnificent gardens & Dublin bay. He even had tunnels built so his servants...(2/12)
could bring the refreshments from his Marino House without disturbing his view.

So when developer Charlie Ffolliott announced plans to build homes on Caulfield's sea view, the Earl did everything in his power to stop him - including jacking up the price on the tolls on...(3/12)

So(1) the people at @UL want to build a #monument to former Tanaiste Mary Harney who in 2002 used the Gov Air Corps (CASA fishery, aircraft, to fly to and open of her friends off licence in 2002 #Manorhamilton #Leitrim
#TrueStory #ThursdayThoughts
#Ireland #wildAtlanticway
2. The aircraft flew to #Sligo on December 14th 2002.
The Progressive Democrats leader flew out to meet barrister friend Fergus O'Hagan to open his off licence with her husband Brian Geoghegan - at an estimated cost of EUR2,500 an hour. #TrueStory
3. After the flight Mary and her husband were collected by a government car, driven over from #Dublin that day, and taken to #Manorhamilton with a garda escort.
There was no donkey and certainly no 3 wise men around

Dublin's heart and charm is cluttered, cluttered with atmosphere not fecking 'quarters' with their chrome and their Costas. Dublin is a good second-hand shop, a Freebird records, Dandelion market, Kehoes, Mulligans, Marks Bros, where folk gather, share and hunt for diamonds....
It's Bewley's and the Savoy and tara street station and the piano at Pearse and Chapters bookshop and get the last of your wrapping paper and the walk to Croker and the canal end heaving and Patrick Kavanagh chilling on the canal..
It's the glow of the Aviva and the dart rattling in and the excitement of Grafton Street and the velvet of the Gaiety, the sticky floors and sounds of the Olympia and Thomas street with artists and those that might be drinking pints as the toilet rolls are sold on the street

I am glad to see @PatrickStrud’s article quoting 5 British feminist academics who quite rightly remind us that feminism must include rights of trans women. It reminds me of an argument that happened after 1 of my talks in #London when 2 white lesbians bombarded me w/ transphobia
I mention that the 2 transphobic lesbians were white because they followed me to dinner after my talk where a gay #Saudi man, a bisexual Saudi woman and I defended trans rights against those two. In no other country have transphobes followed me to dinner after my talk to argue.
I wanted to eat & to talk w/my friends and the transphobes wanted to lecture. I told them that as far as I was concerned trans women are women and the fight against patriarchy had to include trans rights.And then I said i had just spent 90mins on a lecture & Q&A & I wanted to eat

This all started because the #MetPolice & #LBRUT couldn't do their day jobs properly & decided to take the law into their own hands. It started as a small cover up 12 years ago but has turned into British State Persecution.

#Skynews #BBCNews #DailyMail #Guardian #Euronews
My company was raided. It should have been a straightforward matter. But the #MetPolice & #LBRUT forgot to seize my computer & came back to do a 2nd raid. The search warrant didn't permit a second entry, however, #LBRUT entered unlawfully

#Guardian #Telegraph #DailyMail #GMB #UK
Complaints were then made to my MP #VinceCable. He liaised with the #Metpolice & #LBRUT. And then weeks later, the search warrant was completely changed & was passed off as the search warrant executed on the day of the raids.

I suppose we can safely say that now #TheFrighteners have been so successfully and publicly put on a certain sector their combined angst will spew a diarrhoea of spin & warp whilst trying to use THAT VERY THING to generate $£Es Some with automated AdTech software already bought.
2/ Some bought by gormless companies, by mistake, some in full knowledge or partial knowledge of what it could do. It will be interesting as time goes on to see who apparently DIDN'T CARE about the likely instigation of its more negative 'dark' capabilities looking to 'side-step'
3/ or even 'wrong-foot' Irish & EU regulation standards, & possibly law. This too is a kind of #climatechange & #ClimateAction in itself, a would be mammoth untouchable iceberg of 'dominion' & 'control' being melted out into an ocean of citizens' scrutiny & advancement for change
