THREAD: #Geolocation of images taken indoors is infinitely more difficult than geolocating those taken outside, but there are still some resources that can help. Time for some real #OSINT nerdery looking at how plug sockets can help with geolocating an indoor image...
There are 14 different types of plug socket in use around the world. They are categorised from A to N:
Some are very common, being used in a wide range of countries. One legacy of Britain's past is that many former colonies still use the same plug socket as mainland UK (Type G, in case you didn't know...)…

Really excited about a new study with @helleryeahz out today in @NatureNeuro showing that the daily diversity of one’s physical location is associated with increases in #positiveaffect!…
Inspired by past work on #environmentalenrichment and #roamingentropy in rodents, we asked whether day-to-day changes in real-world human exploration were related to fluctuations in affect.
Using #geolocation tracking and #experiencesampling over several months, we found that subjects in NYC and Miami reported greater #positiveemotion on days when they visited more novel and diverse locations. Afterwards, we brought subjects into the lab for a resting state scan.

Thinking about a low cost easy to manufacture home test kit for #Coronavirus. Outline: #Nasal_swab (Q-tip) w/ freeze dried reagents for isothermal #DNA amplification with #COVID19 primers. Colorimetric readout by #iOS or #Android #App w/ #geolocation & #HIPPA compliant reporting. Image
Read-out would be in minutes - timer in App - read by camera in your smart phone. No other machines. Links to telemedicine groups for positive results. Built in positive control - e.g. no color = improper test, green NEGATIVE, red POSITIVE.
I’ve done my best creating when faced by a challenge. Next gen sequencing when my son went to new born intensive care - #454 @iontorrent. Ultrasound on a chip @ButterflyNetInc when wanted to monitor my daughter’s kidneys.

Today we are releasing a new investigation into an American airstrike that caused civilian casualties in Somalia.

With so much Trump impeachment news to keep up on, why should you spare a moment on 3 dead farmers in Somalia?

Give me a shot in this #thread to answer that.
First, the facts: on 18 March 2019, the US launched an airstrike against 3 men driving in a Toyota SUV on their way back to Mogadishu. Everyone agrees on that.

@USAfricaCommand says they killed 3 "terrorists."

We say they don't know who they killed.…
This word "terrorist" is important. After 18 years of war, it no longer means what you think it means.

The US isn't talking about operatives planning international attacks. AFRICOM told us they hit "lower level al-Shabaab" or "affiliates" ahead of a ground operation.

Great example of how geolocation and crowdsourcing works to assist investigations. @EmmanuelFreuden needed a video geolocated of buildings that had been burnt - hints were it was Kumbo in Cameroon. The following is how it was found. #Geolocation #OSINT Thread 1/👇
2/ There were direct clues in this video, which @Sector035 picked up a location for, in conjunction with tipoffs from @EmmanuelFreuden - they were tong structure, red roof, concrete square structure, long building and a light coloured roof.…
3/ In the video, we are also able to identify "GPS Bookstore". Plug that into Google and you get this result.… - It says "Squars" or Squares - an area in Kumbo.
