There will be times when the struggle seems impossible
I know this already.
Alone, unsure, dwarved by the scale of the enemy
Remember This!

Freedom is a pure idea
It occurs spontaneously and without instruction.
Random acts of insurrection are occuring constantly... Image
...througout the galaxy
There are whole armies, battalions that have no idea that they´ve already enlisted in the cause.
Remember that the frontier of the Rebellion is everywhere.
And even the smallest act of insurrection pushes our lines forward.

And then remember...
...this:
The Imperial need for control is so desperate because it´s so unnatural.
Tyranny requires constant effort.
It breaks, it leaks.
Authority is brittle.
Oppression is the mask of fear.
Remember that.

And know this:
The day will come, when all these...

On #WorldKindnessDay, I wanted to give serious consideration to HOW @JohnLewisRetail Christmas ad #TheBeginner communicates its message of welcome & love, which has proven to mean so much to the Care Experienced Community but others have mocked. So here's a THREAD. @whocaresscot
2. I had thought maybe it wd be overkill to offer one of my analyses of #TheBeginner - a bit obvious, a bit overegging t story - until I read t depressing analysis frm @stuheritage in @guardian, which @RebekahPierre92 found so hurtful. Changed my mind.
3. HOW do they manage to pull heart strings? What components are needed to tell a story abt welcomng relatnships?Maybe its not so obvious.
Well, first: EFFORT. At .06, ths new foster dad is willing to put himself out, endure pain, for a child. Lots of childrn never expernce that.

"rejection-sensitive dysphoria" is a mouthful of a phrase. it's the psychological term for a persistent feeling of worthlessness upon receiving any sort of negative reaction from another person.

"dysphoria" is a word that's slung about frequently, isn't it?

~Chara
let me explain "dysphoria" a bit, starting with the Greek root φόρος or _phoros_. here's the Liddell and Scott entry for that word:

perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/text?do…

from that, I hope you carry away the sense of _phoros_ as a *debt*. _phoros_ means roughly "payment" or "tribute".

~Chara
the noun φόρος or _phoros_ derives from a Greek verb, φέρω or _phero_, which means roughly "to bear" or "to carry".

as it happens, Latin has a similar, irregular verb: _fero_ (infinitive form _ferre_) also mean "to bear" or "to carry".

the two words are "cognate".

Today we start a countdown. The World Health Organization's opportunity to amend errors runs out at midnight December 23, 2022 (1 day before Christmas and 1 year after the @WHO recognized #COVIDisAirborne!).

We hope you'll recommend the correct multilayer application of "vaccines PLUS" non-pharmaceutical interventions with quality standards (🟢) –valid for respiratory aerosols– which effectively prevent COVID/LongCOVID, cutting both near and distant contagion chains in public spaces. twitter.com/i/web/status/1…
Best Christmas gift that we children and citizens of the world could receive is #hope on the fact that our States will teach, regulate and facilitate #the7layers for all, since only with quality, equity and precautionary actions will we able to control Pandemic/Syndemic in 2023. twitter.com/i/web/status/1…

1. Wednesdays 🧵thanks for your patience. Had a busy day 😐. Hope this is worth the wait. Today, we are going to talk about the Burrishoole population of Salmo salar, the mighty Atlantic salmon
📽️Ger Rogan
2. From the outset, we are talking about Atlantic salmon today (Salmo salar) and not any of the Pacific salmon species (various Oncorhynchus sp.). 1 of these species is making in-roads into this side of the Atlantic (the PINK salmon), but that’s a whole other story A pink salmon
3. Why do salmon receive so much attention, in comparison to other fish species? @SteveOrmerod put it very well:

There is no point in arguing about employment today; there is a lag between tightening and the #HOPE cycle. Claims and UR didn’t rise until 4Q of 2000 and 2007. Until then people thought “employment was strong” … just like today. #macro #employment
If claims and the UR aren’t rising by mid 2023 then you have an interesting discussion. #macro
Proof is in the charts (and pudding). #macro $SPY

Love your stuff @AndreasSteno but I have to emphatically disagree with your conclusion here. It wasn’t peak CPI that lifted stocks, it’s was Fed rate cuts followed by a HUGE eco recovery (PMIs 🆙, claims ⬇️), as CPI happen to peak, that did it IMO. Charts (2) speak for themselves
PMIs are only trending one direction for a while - same for housing. Same reasons we called BS on the market rally in August - wasn’t consistent with EVERY other market low
Just watch housing starts and ISM new orders. No new bull markets until they are rising (or about to do so). #macro $SPY

In a response to Richard Murphy's blog posted over the weekend, I think this is very insightful as to why the Tories are being so #cruel over #welfare #benefits and #CostOfLivingCrisis Support (a 🧵)... /1
/2 There is a new comment on The #Tories are now the most #rightwing governing party in the developed world:
"It could be worse than that. Maybe the rather tepid move to Labour in the polls is because of something darker.

This family want us to share their experience to encourage other families to keep listening to their gut instinct 💪

“Being scoffed at when doctors can’t find answers through the typical labs & standard tests is hurtful. Being told your child isn’t really sick & this is
all in her head.. diagnosing someone with a mental illness and being told you need a psych not a neurologist… current neurologist) by, supposed, professionals is gut wrenching”

#LongCovidKids
(sharing with permission)
There is a wealth of evidence that #Covid_19 causes inflammation.

Children left with inflammation deteriorate.

We see this again and again in our support services
Today we are pleased to share a ray of hope.

Children deserve better.
Keep going.

⚠️ This Tweet Has Graphic Images ⚠️

Today I was driving in the NE in and around the neighbourhoods when I was about to turn around and head home when I saw someone flag me down.

A older gentleman and his girlfriend asked me if I had any water or anything to eat. @cmcalgary
I pulled over, put my flashers on. I got out to grab them some water and snacks and saw the older gentleman limping & in obvious pain.

When I say hobbling I mean every few steps he stopped to catch his breath because he was in so much pain.

That’s when I said I’d come to them.
I grabbed some bottles of water, snacks, some backpacks, and asked them if they needed anything else.

He told me his bandages had dried to his skin and that he was refused care at a place here in Calgary when he asked for a dressing change.

Throughout his 26-year pontificate, one of #JPII most used phrase was, “Do not be afraid”

John Paul II reflected on that phrase in the book Crossing the Threshold of Hope, and explained that it was the Holy Spirit who inspired him to say those words on October 22, 1978.
"When, I said the words “Be not afraid!” in St. Peter’s Square, I could not fully know how far they would take me and the entire Church. Their meaning came more from the Holy Spirit, the Consoler promised by the Lord Jesus to His disciples, than from the man who spoke them"
"The exhortation 'Be not afraid'should be interpreted as having a very broad meaning. In a certain sense it was an exhortation addressed to all people, an exhortation to conquer fear in the present world situation. Why should we have no fear? Because man has been redeemed by God"

2/ Mild Covid is biologically dangerous long after initial viral infection.

81 mild COVID pts:

Study revealed:
✔️Astrocytes (🧠 support cells for neurons) get infected
✔️Neurotransmitters are altered
✔️Neurons die indirectly
✔️Then we lose brain power

3/ Epidemiology💥

Long COVID is tightening its grip on society.
 
We’re still losing >600 people a day to death from COVID in US alone

Over 100,000 new infections per day (Johns Hopkins data).
 
This is an epic global 🌍#PublicHealth catastrophe.

I have a friend I met when I lived in the honor dorm in prison. She’s a “model inmate”, no write ups, captain’s clerk kind of gal, a lifer. She was found suitable for parole recently. She also voiced concerns about the implementation of the gender self ID 1/7
policy in a 602-the inmate appeals process that allows inmates to question policy when it adversely affects their welfare:A transfer under SB132 walked in on her in the restroom a few times-it bothered her. Her 602 stated that and was met with removal from the honor dorm 2/7
after at least 2 decades of living there write up free, to administrative segregation-the hole. She was released to another yard-with 2 write ups: harassment and falsifying a report. One was dropped. One stuck. There are 4 days left for her 3/7

@NPR is doing its annual reading and tweeting of the #DeclarationOfIndependence. 246 years ago a group of men felt it so important that they risked everything to defy a King & start a path for a democratic republic. Today we’re seeing those values attacked by the stolen #SCOTUS
The #AntiDemocraticParty of the GOP passing laws & ideas to circumnavigate the will of #Americans. On this #IndependenceDay2022, it is time to not celebrate what happened 246 years ago, but to honor it by standing up for our #FellowAmericans ensuring that #Rights and #Freedoms
Are actually for all of us. #Autonomy is a #Right. Not being shot because you look dangerous or are frightened or just went to school #Right. Loving yourself & having your ability to have your own family is a #Right. #Healthcare is a #HumanRight (#AbortionIsHealthcare)

Aside from all the bullish and bearish posts about crypto and bitcoin in general-- I think
it's very important for people to understand the bigger picture of what is going on in the world
Not everyone is going to agree, but this is the reality.
Let's first go into the concept of the gold standard and what the asset truly represents. Gold was a product of value
that was used to back the fiat currency, but as the US dollar drifted away in 1971 everything changed, but the
valuation of gold was kept as the general populati
on believed it to be the foundation of what we call money now. You start to question though, if fiat currencies are not backed by any valuation, what gives it the value that
we believe it to be today? Fiat is strictly driven by the concept of debt, and debt can only go so far un

1/🧵 Long COVID Brain Science: 🧠

For ~100M suffering 🌎, let’s use data to combat myths & #Misinformation

2/ First, Epidemiological comparisons…

FLU vs. COVID

Survivors of viral infxns like #Flu don’t complain of 200 long-term symptoms & ~90% ongoing mood disorders.

#LongCOVID pts do.

Flu kills 0.5M/year vs COVID has killed 10X that (5M) in just 2 years.

bit.ly/3mJTBK4
3/ Consider this:

A study of 150k COVID survivors, hospitalized & not.

COVID survivors had 10-15X ‼️higher risk of considering #suicide at 1 year than 11M control patients.

This is horrifying, yet people still deny #LongCOVID’s importance.

WHY?

🚨📣15 more families are supported in Samangan with your donations through the campaign organized by @toimohammadbegzad.📣🚨

(1/4) ⤵️⤵️
Samangan is a province located on the northern side of the country. It is one of the most underserved and remote regions in Afg, consisting of 59% of mountainous terrain. Thus, it makes it hard for families living there to have easy and immediate access to aid and food. (2/4)
However, our volunteer team is willing to visit the most remote places and help families with your donations.

⚠️This campaign is still active, and we have to urgently support more families on the waiting list as they are going through acute hunger. (3/4)
