Il sorvolo del #Giappone da parte di un missile balistico della Corea del Nord non è un inedito. Chiedere per capire ai residenti di #Hokkaido, già 5 anni or sono svegliati dagli altoparlanti che lanciavano l'allarme: "Lancio missilistico! Trovate rifugio sottoterra!".
Il pur inquietante suono delle sirene udite in 🇯🇵 è comunque meno allarmante della spregiudicatezza di #KimJongUn, leader alla perenne ricerca di attenzione da parte degli USA, attualmente impegnati su altri fronti e oggi richiamati a preoccuparsi degli umori di #Pyongyang.
D'altronde è una questione di interesse nazionale. Il missile lanciato oggi dalla Corea del Nord, forse un Hwasong-12, ha coperto una distanza di 4500 km, record nella storia del programma balistico 🇰🇵. #Guam, territorio USA nel Mar delle Filippine, dista "appena" 3380 km.

🚨The exciting part of the year for Japanese politics is rapidly approaching: with the race for the leadership of the LDP upon us, the general election for the Lower House is getting closer and closer.📆

Reports say that it could take place by Mid-October! Thus, this project:➕ Image
I would like to make a rundown on the 289 Single-Member Districts that compose part of the Lower House of the Japanese Diet.

Let's see the conditions of each district, the candidates & how the Japanese media & history see the race. Join me and follow along! In for a long ride🎢
Yes. I'm THAT crazy. LOL

All in with the 289 districts. Let's do it for fun and in order to learn more (myself included) about JP politics.

Please don't hesitate to add info, point out mistakes or anything you want! #JapanPolitics

Before COVID, the #Aichi @irouren nurses were able to express their frustrations like any other worker. Now under the #StateofEmergency, they will not walk but just hold a presser and engage the social media. #看護の日
Leading up to the presser, @irouren & labor unions nationwide unleashed a fierce SNS campaign expressing the anger & frustration of the nurses on the field, gathering almost 0.5M tweets to date. This nurse exclaimed, “WE ARE NOT DISPOSABLE PAWNS!” #看護は自己犠牲じゃない
But despite the fierce protest, the Japan Nursing Association reportedly succumbed to the demands of the #Tokyo2020 organizers to ‘secure’ 500 nurses for the Games. #Aichi @irouren have rejected saying, “It is unimaginable: one sick-leave is rendering our operation useless!”

As #COVID19 cases are found to spread, #Melbourne (city of ~5 million) tries to contain them by going into #Lockdown.
(The interview features the idea of a dedicated #Quarantine building - that would actually help, I guess)...
"People acting as if the pandemic was over was 'not the answer, it is part of the problem' ".

"The virus had leaked from postcodes already under the stay-at-home orders to other parts of #Melbourne."
(and beyond, it is feared).
Due to #Melbourne's outbreak, neighbouring South Australia is about to completely close it's borders to #Victoria.

(Nearly) no exceptions. And those essential few who are allowed in, will have to wear facemasks the entire time...

Vorpommern-Greifswald district (where rejections of #Gütersloh residents took place, yesterday)
has specific rules:
"Those who return from international risk areas (out of Germany) or whose Corona-Warning App has alerted them, need to report to authorites" Image
In fact, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern's Corona-ordinance really prohibits entry of people from international risk areas AND german risk areas as well.
It's just not prominently featured on their websites.

(Overlooked that myself, hence deleted earlier tweet)… Image
People from #Gütersloh district may have to scrap all their holiday plans anyway...

An official #Lockdown is just being announced for the entire district.
(for one week, as of now)

1/30 In two forthcoming pieces, I examine #Japan's response to the #COVID19 #coronavirus #pandemic. I'll summarize the main non-theoretical points here (long thread alert!).
2/30 #Japan’s figures have always looked good compared to many other countries, which initially led to suspicion that the ‘real’ numbers of #COVID19 #coronavirus infections & death were being played down.
3/30 #Tokyo Metropolitan Government at least has now released full #COVID19 figures, including general death rates, seeming to put this argument to rest (but these figures are also now being challenged).…

Den gamle #SARSCoV2-tråd er blevet for lang, så derfor jeg starter en ny - Har man spørgsmål, er man meget velkommen til at stille dem i tråden. Image
𝗖𝗼𝘃𝗶𝗱𝟭𝟵 𝗼𝗴 𝗴𝗿𝗮𝘃𝗶𝗱𝗶𝘁𝗲𝘁: Er man gravid, så er det vigtigt at være ekstra opmærksom på riskoen ved #SARSCoV2. Vi ved fra både SARS og MERS at det kan have alvorlige konsekvenser. Men vi mangler stadig viden om SARSCoV2. Der er dog ingen grund til at tage chancer.
Derfor - Har man været i et område indenfor de seneste 14 dage, hvor der er konstateret SARSCoV2/Covid19. Eller har man været i kontakt med folk der senere er blevet konstateret smittet. Så er det vigtigt at man henvender sig til sygehuset og tager alle forholdsregler til mødet.

@ChinneryRoy @RT_sputnik @georgegalloway @francisbeckett @GayatriGalloway @RT_com @UKLabour I don't believe you've read much history of WW2... if you had you wouldn't have come out with such an uninformed statement!
1st & foremost, George is correct - Britain fought for 2 years on our own & that is what saved the world... & what America conveniently forgets! ...cont
@ChinneryRoy @RT_sputnik @georgegalloway @francisbeckett @GayatriGalloway @RT_com @UKLabour 2. There were more '#British' troops landed on D-Day than #American troops.
The #OmahaBeach disaster was the #Americans fault - They screwed up there as they did in #NorthAfrica, #Sicily & #Italy & in the #Pacific at #PearlHarbour on #Tarawa & #Pelelieu & elsewhere. ...cont
@ChinneryRoy @RT_sputnik @georgegalloway @francisbeckett @GayatriGalloway @RT_com @UKLabour 3. #USNavy CnC Earnest King caused a disaster in the #Atlantic in late 12.'41-05'42 when over 600 merchant ships were sunk in sight of US coast, because he didn't want to take #British Advice.
Of all the #American commanders only #Eisenhower & Marshall were Not Anglophobes! ..ct
