We're doing it again! @MomsDemand volunteers showing up strong at the Lafayette, CO city council meeting where officials will be voting on 4 local gun safety ordinances tonight. #ENOUGH #GunSafetyNow
Local ordinances being considered: ghost gun ban, signage warning of the dangers of guns in the home (2x more likely resident of the home will die by homicide, 3x more likely resident will die by suicide), prohibit open carry in public places, no firearms on city property.
1st speaker @MomsDemand volunteer who went to Columbine HS, brother was at school the day of the shooting in 1999.

At the Longmont City Council meeting where the extremist groups RMGO and Rally for our Rights have filled the room. They are currently loudly mocking the video feed from the discussion about gun ordinances going on in the pre-meeting discussion. @MomsDemand
Despite extremist rhetoric, we are not as divided as they would have us believe. Large majorities of Americans want gun safety laws. We are tired of living with a largely unregulated gun industry. It's killing us. #Enough
The mocking is quite something. In a country awash in guns, with a gun homicide rate 26x that of any peer nation, that people laugh about reasonable laws to regulate a largely unregulated industry is pretty depraved. They claim that guns everywhere is freedom. No. It's anarchy.

#BelieveWomen #StartbyBelieving
@EvaWi @NHCADSV @ConcordPolice @SurvJustice @NH_DOJ - if you started by believing Chessy Prout, then you would have believed her when she said to her sister & Concord PD recorded it down "I have never said he raped me". Instead you trained her.
You trained her to say what you wanted her to say so that you could prosecute Owen Labrie. You didn't want it to go to trial. You wanted Owen Labrie to plead guilty to something you knew he had not done and that you could not prove that he had done.
And your goal once you had done that was to use the framing of the scholarship student Owen Labrie to install a "compliance officer" at St Paul's School, to get a contract for the NHCADSV, to get the school to use both "Bystander Intervention" Training &

Today I write this thread to call in @girlguidesofCan; last week, after six years, I resigned as a leader with GGC, and have decided not to register my daughters in GGC programming for the foreseeable future, due to the lack of COVID safety at GGC meetings and events. 1/28
At the beginning of the pandemic, GGC took a very safety-conscious stance regarding COVID, and GGC activities were the one place my daughter and I felt safest because of that stance, including some in-person events; we were so grateful. 2/28
Unfortunately, as government messaging shifted toward "personal responsibility" to protect oneself from COVID, and protections were loosened, so, too, did the messaging from @girlguidesofcan change. 3/28

📢New Paper:
#Energy_sufficiency is the missing lever to tackle the ⚡️crisis & climate heating 🌡️!
With @ThPellerin we show:
1⃣ What's #sufficiency and #sufficiency_policy,
2⃣its benefits,
3⃣ #sufficiency actions in current crisis,
4⃣ what EU could do.
Simply put, energy #sufficiency is about redu-
cing energy consumption through changes
in #behaviour.
It's notion of #enough implies a social lower boundary and a ecological upper threshold. Image
Why do we need #sufficiency policies?
Our collective choices such as taxa-
tion, infrastructure, legal and social norms,
shape our behaviour - currently not in a sustainable way!
Also the new @IPCC_CH WGIII report proposes therefore sufficiency policies!

5 urgent actions to build back better and fairer for working women (and to spark a thriving economy) in 2022. A thread from us (me and ⁦@ElizabethHill00⁩ ⁦@Sydney_Uni⁩ in the @guardian today). 1/6…
First: provide the high quality flexible working options that employees need and want. There is skyrocketing demand if designed properly it will boost participation. We don’t mean dead end ‘bad flex’ 2/6
Second: build good, secure jobs into the organisation, supply chain and labour market. Highly feminised jobs in care, health, education need urgent improvement 3/6

1. There was a mass shooting today.

In #SanJose

My hometown.

Where I spent 18 years of my life.

Where 5/9 of my family members live.
2. But you know what? There is a mass shooting every day in this country.

Over 100 people are shot and killed, and over 200 people are shot and injured every day.

More than 100 people. Every single day.

That staggering number doesn’t happen anywhere else in the world.
3. Some of these people — of us — are victims of mass shootings that make the news.

Most of these people — of us — are victims of mass shootings, and homicides, and suicides, and negligent shootings that do not.

For the last decade+, I have been one of the vocal voices in our country calling to address #gunviolence as a #publichealth problem.

***Gun deaths are no different from #COVID19: when we politicize human suffering, we all lose.****

A thread: 🧵

What does it mean to call it a "public health" problem?

1st and most importantly, it means centering our work in the human experience. The injuries, deaths, and ripple effects on communities. #ThisIsOurLane…
2nd, it means using data & science - not emotion or rhetoric - to create lasting change.

We did this for car crashes (without taking cars off the road.... we just made them safer).

We did this for AIDS. Evangelicals (e.g., Surgeon General Koop) were among the leaders.

It came to me last night as I attempted to find my way into slumber. The PM @ScottMorrisonMP had heard ‘rumours’ of allegations against a Cabinet minister from inquiries via @4corners & @Milliganreports 'Nothing of substance' though. He couldn’t possibly 'interfere'.
I mulled over this last night and I do not believe the PM is telling the truth. I call bullshit and I rarely swear.

I thought back to that day in October last year when I received a phonecall from the PM's office telling me to stop criticising their federal budget.
The day after handing down the biggest spending budget in Oz's history someone inside the PM’s office had enough time – and obvious inclination – to pick up the phone to me. They said I'm a ‘public figure’ & took issue enough with my words that it was necessary to ‘interfere’.

Sure, @dananessel, YOU make it personal, YOU hide behind false (old, tired) misogyny smears as @realDonaldTrump criticizes your PROFESSIONAL (mis)behavior.

You've ignored the law, constitution & people of #Michigan in pursuing an overtly partisan, aggressively political agenda.
#Michigan AG @dananessel is doing the bidding of the Governor, the Democrat Party, & George Soros (who helped elect her)- instead of defending the PEOPLE of Michigan's interest. She flouts laws, ignores the Constitution & abuses the power of her office.…
Respondingvto valid #ElectionFraud accusations backed by evidence & sworn affidavits, she threatens to use a Govt Hammer on anyone daring to point out her malfeasance, mis-administration & ignorance of the law. #ImpeachNessel & #ImpeachWhitmer before there's another 'lost decade.

I don’t normally disagree with @FrankFigliuzzi1 but today, I must.

It has ALWAYS been about white supremacy.

None of the previous white, male, homegrown terrorists have been just troubled souls.

They are not little lost boys or lone wolves.

They are radicalized terrorists.
This narrative that being troubled or poor is an excuse for murder or criminality is only extended to white men.

Black boys playing on playgrounds like #TamirRice are gunned down at 12.

Double murderers like #KyleRittenhouse are called heroes at 17.

#Nope #NopittyNope
I am not coming for @FrankFigliuzzi1. He’s a good dude. I like him.

But this skewed narrative that white supremacy and the mayhem, chaos and sadly death it causes being something just a few misguided lone wolves live by is not true or fair to their MANY victims.

.@headsUPmigraine spoke w/ a rural #PCP hounded out of the profession by relentless pressure to stop rxing #opioids. She was the only PCP in +100 miles willing to accept patients on opioid therapy. Most were over 70. 2018 #AMA statement shows many share her frustration. >thread
In 2018, #AMA passed a resolution against “misapplication” of the CDC Guideline by “pharmacists, health insurers, pharmacy benefit managers, legislatures, & governmental & private regulatory bodies in ways that prevent or limit patients’ medical access to #opioid analgesia.” 2/

Risk of OD to prescribed #opioids is 0.13% (Kaiser, Jnl of Pain 2019), while risk of death by OD increases more than 300% with dose variability of ≥30% (JAMA 2019).

VHA study: discontinuation increases the risk of death by #OD or #suicide up to 6.8 times (BMJ 2020). / thread
0.13% = risk of OD to prescribed #opioids (Kaiser 2019). Dose reduction is "inconsistent" in lowering OD risk. Research found "no support for RSM [risk stratification & monitoring] as a means of decreasing overdose.”

Jnl of Pain 2019;20(1)…
0.1% to 0.23% = risk of OD to prescribed #opioids, per Canada's 2017 Guideline.

0.1% for <20 MED, 0.14% for 20–49, 0.18% for 50–99 MED, 0.23% for ≥100 MED.

Discontinuation carries a significantly higher risk of death.

Do we really have anything worth celebrating?
More recently  Someone said to me
 "Pastor, Nigeria is a cursed country".
I said no... We are not cursed, we have only allowed pple who have no business governing us to occupy offices thru our actions & inactions
For some of us, it has been a SIDON LOOK approach.

We must take back this nation from the hands of a few who have now come to believe that they own Nigeria and must always chart her course.
In the beginning, it was not meant to be so.
We take back our nation in the place of prayer and not just prayers, but getting invilyand demanding accountability....

We not only pray that God will deliver this nation from the hands of bandits, kidnappers, killers, thieving, clueless and inept politicains who dont mean

In 2019, #CDC Guideline authors quoted their 2016 stats:

"nearly 2 million" have #opioid use disorder,
"estimated 3% to 4%" rely on long-term opioid therapy
"approximately 11%" report daily #pain

"Nearly 2 million"=nearly 0.6%. Stick with me.…
Before governments recommend & legislators, providers, & insurers adopt policies that could harm up to 11% to possibly protect 0.6%, they need damned good evidence that what they're recommending is necessary.

But they didn't know if rx #opioid limits would help or kill.
#CDC set off a tidal wave of limits in 2016, even tho the studies then available on dose limits provided "very-low-quality evidence" that reducing or stopping med would improve pain, function, or quality of life. 76% got the *lowest* rating for evidence.…

2017 Review: “Expert guidelines recommend reducing or discontinuing long-term #opioid therapy when risks outweigh benefits, but evidence on the effect of dose reduction on patient outcomes has not been systematically reviewed.” / #cpp thread.
🟠 How can guidelines be "expert" recommendations if researchers haven't carefully investigated how patients will react when their rx #opiod med is stopped or reduced?

Are we going to feel better or worse? Are we going to live or die?
In 2017, #VA-funded researchers identified 67 studies about #opioid dosage reduction or discontinuation.

Study quality was deemed “poor” in 76% of the 67, the lowest rating.
