What does it meant to say "money is moving to the internet"?
Isn't it already there?

The answer is NO.

There are key differences between natively digital...and analog uploaded to the digital.

Our current monetary system is the latter.

Legacy financial rails have been transposed on the internet, but true settlement remains antiquated, slow, and dependent on intermediaries.

(1) NEW: How bad are structural issues with the T.R. Bridge? It isn't just the public impacted by emergency repairs. STATter911 has learned both @ArlingtonVaFD & @dcfireems are restricting how fire apparatus can access the bridge for emergencies. (more) #vatraffic #dctraffic Image
(2) @ArlingtonVaFD confirms it's following the lead of @dcfireems which limits speeds to a maximum of 25 mph, prohibits fire apparatus from parking side-by-side, keeps apparatus at least 30 feet from each other & 30 feet from open bridge joints. (more) Image
(3) @dcfireems also makes it clear that heavier pieces of fire apparatus like Tower 3 and the department's foam units aren't to use the T.R. Bridge "under any circumstances." #firefighters #traffic Image

This is horrifying. I expected this to happen at some point in Jan or Feb with #Omicron. I didn't expect it happen on January 1. 💔

How on earth did this happens - with modern fire suppression systems the catastrophic loss was preventable.

Over seen a few historic projects where we installed oxygen reduction or water mist.

1. Firefighters in California are in a desperate battle to defend giant sequoias

Like glaciers or coral reefs, it is another example where climate change threatens some of the most beautiful sights on our planet.

Thread 🧵

#Sequoia #wildfires #California #ClimateCrisis

2. The changing climate changes the planet, including some of the most beautiful sights that you may see in your lives.

From the magnificent glaciers in the mountains to the coral reefs in the oceans, we destroy the most iconic examples of nature.…

3. I remember how amazed I was in the 1990s when seeing some of these enormous trees in California.

Standing on the forest floor and looking up, they seemed to grow into infinity.

A moment of silence, in remembrance of the moment the first plane hit the North Tower on 9/11, here at the beginning of the annual #firefighter Manitou Incline climb.

And a moment of silence for the minute the second plane hit.

We’re about to start climbing.

We’re at the base of the incline. RJ Gerry leads the group - he started this tradition in 2014 with only three #firefighters.

#Breaking #VegetationFire #solo #vehicle #crash #OrangeCounty #CNF @CHPCapistrano @OCFADivision4 are responding to a vegetation fire that started after an off-road, vehicle crash

The location is deep in the #CNF & access for #OCFA & #CHP will be very difficult due to the terrain
#Update - This solo vehicle crash, that started the vegetation fire, is now being reported as an overturned Jeep with multiple injuries
#Update - For those unfamiliar with this terrain/ give you an idea someone with #4WD off-road experience during daylight hours & with decent road conditions, the average drive time up the mountain to Harding Truck Trail & Maple Springs Rd, takes at least an 1 hour

A round of applause is in order for the excellent, brave, and, most importantly, very effective firefighters who have successfully held this fire line and stopped the flames from advancing all damn night long.

My family thanks you. Image
Special thanks this morning to all the first responders from a very sleepy and tummy-full Ruth Vickery.
I’ll tell her all about you when she can understand 👧. Image

On this night 19 years ago,246 people went to sleep in preparation for their morning flights.2606 people went to sleep in preparation for work in the morning tomorrow.343 firefighters went to sleep in preparation for their morning shift.#Pennsylvania #Pentagon #FDNY #GiantSlayrs Image
60 police officers went to sleep in preparation for morning patrol. 8 paramedics went to sleep in preparation for the morning shift of saving lives. None of them saw past 10:00 am Sept 11, 2001. In one single moment life may never be the same. Image
As you live and enjoy the breaths you take today and tonight before you go to sleep in preparation for your life tomorrow, kiss the ones you love, snuggle a little tighter, and never take one second of your life for granted. Image

I want you to know about #hotshots. Hotshots are the small, elite teams of on-ground firefighters who are braving the elements and fighting fires with shovels, chainsaws, and superhuman endurance. They work for the National Forest Service. #Fire
Here’s a good video showing what hotshots actually do for #fires. It is an amazing group of people, being taxed to the utmost by a catastrophic climate condition.
#Hotshots clear breaks, so fires have nothing to burn. They do this by hand, digging, picking, and raking, out in the wilderness. 16 hours a day, camping where they fight. And they set back burns to fight fire with fire. #fires…

#ValleyFire 🔥SHELTER IN PLACE per @CalFire if unable to evacuate bc of fire blocking road. #Fire in Carveacre Rd & Japutal Rd in #Alpine area. Call 911 if need emergency #evacuation assistance. Follow @SDSheriff @CALFIRESANDIEGO & @ClevelandNF (thread)
If you must SIP, put wet towels under doors, close all windows & fireplace damper, & if you have time, get on roof & cover vents. Before fire approaches, turn off gas at meter, fill trash cans/buckets/tub w/water, wet down roof and vegetation (thread...)
Turn on your house & solar lights. Breathe in 3, hold 2, out 3, repeat to remain calm. Bring flammables from yard-umbrellas, etc-inside house; only move things like cans of gas away from house if you can get them far from homes. Wear N95mask or use vacuumbag as filter for mask...

SPECIAL ANALYSIS: Grisly experiments have become synonymous with the #US government, which has meted out untold horrors against humans and animals alike.
By: John Whitehead
#COVID19 #EarthDay
The cannibalistic experiments involve killing cats and dogs purchased from Colombia, #Brazil, Vietnam, China and Ethiopia, and then feeding the dead remains to laboratory kittens, bred in government laboratories for the purpose of being infected with a disease and then killed. Image
"We the people” have also become the #Police state guinea pigs. Back in 2017, FEMA “inadvertently” exposed nearly 10,000 #firefighters, paramedics and other responders to a deadly form of ricin during simulated #BioTerrorism response sessions.

I've heard some claim that #doctors are greedy, heartless, willing to sacrifice patient health and safety for profit, referring to vaccines, triage of care, the expense of healthcare, and the list goes on.

I hope this clears all that up for you. #PPE…
This goes also for #nurses, PA's, #firstresponders, #firefighters, #police, #military, and all those who risk their own safety to help others. You don't go into one of our fields to get rich. You do it because you care about others.

#SoMeDocs #medtwitter #HealthcareHeroes
Yes, there are bad actors, but that's true in all professions. The majority of #HealthCareWorkers risk their own health & safety daily, as do #FirstResponders, not just during #COVIDー19. Don't blame the providers when you're really mad at the system.
