In advance of my monthly analysis of #Starlink conjunction data I wanted to share some additional analysis undertaken over the last few days. It's a work in progress but here's a thread looking a little deeper at the #SpaceX approach to #Starlink orbital space safety [1/n]
#SpaceX provided some relatively detailed information about its approach in a briefing to the #FCC (here: ecfsapi.fcc.gov/file/108107102…) and in an update on the website (here: spacex.com/updates/index.…) [2/n]
My focus has mostly been on understanding the implications relating to the choice of the probability threshold for collision avoidance manoeuvres. With the #SOCRATES #Starlink data now running across nearly 3 years we can gain some insights that may be useful [3/n]

This Could Be Huge

The #FCC Is Investigating American Media And Other Companies For RUSSIAN OWNERSHIP TIES

Pro-Russia #FoxNews has raised suspicion. Any companies that are found to have ownership ties to Russia could be deemed a security threat

#MOG

It also covers a vast array of telecommunications and infrastructure companies, including wireless providers, submarine cable operators, and foreign telecom services that connect US-international phone calls, the person said.

#MOG
Any companies that have ownership ties to Russia could be deemed a security threat to the #US and could be subject to BEING SHUT DOWN and kicked out of the #US

There are likely some conservative media companies that should be very nervous about what the #FCC review could find.

So from the thread @Qnie_Addis I have had some discussions with colleagues and made some inquires on the @CNN and @nimaelbagir's #Fake news against #Ethiopia on their 'news report'. 1/14
Please read this thread @Qnie_Addis @EthThinker @MimiH87987850 @PLPSD @dejene_2011. 🙏
First, the best way, I think, is to assert based on the US laws. That means, they can be responsible for violating the laws of the US especially concerning fake news. But, due to the First Amendment that provides wider protection to freedom of speech this task is no easy. 2/14
The reason is simple, the US does not have laws against fake news. Of course there is fake news. But the US law favors freedom of speech more. They have their own philosophy. Yet, that does not mean freedom of speech is absolute. 3/14

What does the 2020 Dem Platform say about #COVID19? Time to acquaint ourselves with the #DemPartyPlatform for 2020. A platform is guiding principles of a party/goals, vision, mission, promise. Only one party has a platform for the next four years/this is The Peoples Platform 1/15
The #COVID19 pandemic has hit small businesses especially hard. Democrats support making significant, immediate grants and loans to help small businesses make payroll, pay rent and other expenses, and keep their doors open when possible. 2/15 #DemPartyPlatform
Some estimates indicate as many as 40% of Black-owned small businesses may not survive the #TrumpRecession &small businesses owned by Asian Amer/Pacific Islanders/Latinos are also at risk. Dems will prioritize support for entrepreneurs of color, as well as female businesses. 3/15

Pleased to announce key changes to @FCC's Rural Health Care and #ERate programs that'll make it easier for broadband providers to support #telehealth and #remotelearning. These services are more critical than ever given the #coronavirus pandemic. 1/4
Specifically, the #FCC has waived the gift rules until August 30, 2020 to enable service providers to offer, and RHC/#ERate program participants to solicit and accept, improved connections or additional equipment for #telemedicine or #remotelearning during this pandemic. 2/4
This waiver will let health care providers, schools, and libraries accept improved capacity, #WiFi hotspots, networking gear, or other equipment or services to support doctors and patients, teachers and students, and librarians and patrons during the #coronavirus outbreak. 3/4

@RedTRaccoon Here’s a good place to begin.

I hope everyone will take time to read or view Jeff Sharlet’s book “The Family” asap. It’s urgent!

Watch his video from “Democracy in Chains” author, Nancy MacLean too.

The Koch agenda is happening now.

@RedTRaccoon We can’t wait & hope for impeachment or elections alone to solve our Koch RW problem.
