Hey, #NCVoters it's time to let your voices be heard! 🗣
@NCSBE is taking public comments until July 5th on a proposed rule that would change the way absentee ballots are verified. Let's talk about this proposed rule and why it's important - a 🧵
#ICYMI - The NC GOP has petitioned the State Board of Elections to implement a policy allowing counties to scrutinize absentee ballot request forms. 🔎
As part of this process, the county board of elections would have to compare the signature on your absentee ballot envelope or request form with your original voter registration documents. If the signatures don't match, your ballot will not be counted. ✍️

#ICYMI: See How Cheap A Woman’s Life Is!😞
#Turkey: A Turkish court on Monday handed down a reduced sentence of 23 years to a man who killed his ex-lover on the grounds that the victim had “provoked” him.
Gültekin was strangled and then, set on fire by her ex-boyfriend, Avcı, who
confessed to the murder.
The court first handed down an aggravated life sentence to Avcı on charges of premeditated murder.
But the court later ruled to reduce his sentence to 23 years based on Article 29 of the #Turkish Penal Code (TCK) that is often used to reduce sentences for
#Men accused of such crimes on the grounds that the victim provoked the murder with her actions.
Avcı’s #family members who faced up to 5 years in prison for aiding and abetting, helping to cover his tracks and concealing evidence of the crime, have been acquitted of the charges.

We’re back from the last day of the @UNECE Ministerial Conference on #Ageing, starting with the Opening of the Ministerial Segment!

✅ Follow this thread for key highlights throughout the day

✅ Or join the livestream: mipaa20rome.it/live-streaming

#AddingLifeToYears #MIPAA20Rome
Ministers from the host of #MIPAA20Rome, Italy, are now speaking on the challenges but also the opportunities of population ageing.

We are on average living longer than ever before. The @UNDecadeAgeing is our opportunity to live these extra years with health & well-being.
@dienekeita (@UNFPA) provides a strong message: we must do for older people now what we want for ourselves when we are older.

#MIPAA, #MIPAA20Rome, and the @UNDecadeAgeing all show there is political will to improve the lives of older people. That will must be backed by action.

#ICYMI, here's a #threatintel related🧵👇 by me on @USTreasury advisory on DPRK IT workers' attempts to obtain employment while posing as non-North Korean nationals: home.treasury.gov/system/files/1… (1/?)
DPRK IT workers "engage in a wide range of IT dev work, such as: mobile & web-based apps, virtual currency exchange platforms & digital coins. Some
designed virtual currency exchanges or created analytic tools/apps for virtual currency traders & marketed their products." (2/?)
This reminds me, for example, of Marine Chain Token: (justice.gov/opa/pr/three-n…; justice.gov/opa/press-rele…), #AppleJeus (cisa.gov/uscert/ncas/al…) and, more recently, #TraderTraitor (cisa.gov/uscert/ncas/al…). #HIDDENCOBRA/#APT38 loves loves loves their crypto (3/?)

#ICYMI: This was from 2 years ago when I looked into SPAC Nation at @HuffPostUK. The new allegations about its pastors grooming girls are worrying if unsurprising.
.@metpoliceuk launched an investigation into individuals associated with the church in Feb 2020. Last I heard, it's still ongoing!
The last time I made contact with the Met Police about SPAC Nation - recently - I didn't receive a reply. The time before that, weeks ago, an officer advised that there's no update on the investigation.

Rich immigrants who moved to #Vancouver through Quebec's back-door investor program now own, on avg, $4.6m worth of housing. But they're only paying taxes on annual incomes of a paltry $100k. A gov.-enabled scam. Via @GoldinYVR, #vanre #vanpoli #cdnpoli theglobeandmail.com/real-estate/va…
2/ @Ayan604 says the system is failing new immigrants who’ve arrived to work and settle, if it also allows new immigrants who are here (simply) because they are wealthy and have an appetite for real estate investment. #vanre #torontorealestate #onpoli #Cdnimm #bcpoli #vanpoli

#ICYMI: Over a week after news emerged of #ChildQ being strip-searched by Met Police officers, PM Boris Johnson has said that reports of the Black teenager's ordeal were "deeply distressing and deeply concerning" - but was, in all, dismissive about the case.
In the Commons on Wednesday, Labour’s Helen Hayes asked PM “whether he believes that the characteristic dither and delay of his Government in responding to this appalling case is remotely acceptable when it comes to the safety of children?”
PM replied: “I think that is a completely ridiculous characterisation of the response of the Government because, of course, the reports of this incident are deeply distressing and deeply concerning.

Bonus image! When it’s time to focus, sometimes you need to take a good look at yourself.

This “selfie” taken by Webb of its primary mirror was not captured by an externally mounted engineering camera, but with a special lens within its NIRCam instrument. #UnfoldTheUniverse A black and white image of the primary mirror of the Webb Te
This special lens is meant for engineering, not science, and allows NIRCam to capture an “inward-looking” image of the primary mirror. This image helps us to check that the telescope is aligned with the science instruments. blogs.nasa.gov/webb/2022/02/1…
What you are seeing is the actual primary mirror of Webb as it observes its engineering target, a bright star. All the mirror segments are seeing starlight, but the bright segment is bright because, from NIRCam’s view, the segment is directly aligned with the star.

#ICYMI: Mike O'Farrell, chairman of Middlesex County Cricket Club, suggests Black & Asian people aren't as interested in cricket as their white counterparts. This went unchallenged by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport select committee. parliamentlive.tv/Event/Index/13… Image
"The football & rugby world becomes much more attractive to the Afro-Caribbean community," O'Farrell said. "In terms of the south Asian community, we're finding that they sometimes prefer to go into other educational fields and then cricket becomes secondary."
Cricket is elitist and plagued with racism. Hence lack of diversity. O'Farrell's comments were wild - as was the committee's failure to challenge those assertions. Next.

#ICYMI Charlie Munger's new favorite stock is $BABA, now 3rd largest holding of Daily Journal (after $BAC $WFC). Position doubled in Q4.

What does "Poor Charlie" see in Alibaba and what many deem an "uninvestable" China?

🧵👇 Image
1/ We can deduce from Munger investing heavily in $BABA that China is far from "uninvestable"

I share similar sentiment. 2021 was a painful but necessary year to clean up 40-plus-years of “startup debt” since "opening & reform"(See post: interconnected.blog/removing-china…)
2/ $BABA's long term moat + profitability lies in AliCloud, B2B enterprise biz + more “hardcore” technical innovations.

Turns out, AliCloud has been profitable (adjusted EBITA) for last 4 quarters!

Only other profitable cloud of comparable size is AWS. GCP still bleeding 💰

#ICYMI - On Dec. 16, the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research (WRAIR) announced that a series of preclinical study results show that the SpFN COVID-19 vaccine elicits a potent immune response which could be crucial in combating current and future variants.

Ooh, sick burn! 🔥

In this case, we’re not talking about insults, but a burn of fuel to adjust #NASAWebb’s trajectory on its million mile (1.5 million km) journey to #UnfoldTheUniverse. #ICYMI, Webb had its first mid-course correction burn Dec. 25: go.nasa.gov/32uctX1
So far, the post-launch journey has been smooth sailing. Burns are scheduled to leave as much remaining fuel as possible for #NASAWebb’s ordinary operations over its lifetime, like small adjustments to keep Webb in its desired orbit once it arrives. #UnfoldTheUniverse
One interesting aspect of the #NASAWebb launch and its burns is that we always "aim a little bit low." Webb's thrusters can only push Webb away from the Sun, not back toward the Sun (and Earth). We designed launch and these burns to always avoid drifting away.
