Science should never rest on its findings nor thwart any other opinions.

We grow by challenging science

Where would we be w/out challenging the scientific status quo🤔

Let's remind ourselves of a few things science believed + #imagine where we would be if left unchallenged.
1. Samuel Cartwright
The "slavery scientist" as they called him insisted on MANY false beliefs to further the "status quo" narrative of slavery, including slaves were #animals and to stop them from running away one should torture them and confuse them constantly.
2. Ice Pick Lobotomies
Dr. Freeman committed 3500+ Lobotomies w/ a 14% fatality rate. Many left crippled or in a vegetative state forever. This was even done to children for hyperactive behavior or low IQ.

Including JFKs little sister Rosemary.

The #Zapatista tour of #Ireland, a long aul’ thread (but pix and vids!) to wrap up

In 1994 indigenous peasants in the mountains of SE Mexico rose up against #neoliberal capitalism, their latest struggle in 500 years of resisting colonialism…

#LaGiraZapatistaVa #EZLN Zapatista women at La Realidad
If you need a backgrounder, here's Mick McCaughan, ex-Latin American correspondent for the Irish Times and Guardian introducing why the #Zapatistas matter:

27 years later, they hold liberated territory the size of Munster –

governing themselves from below

practicing #AgroEcology

Some thoughts on Cda's 44th Federal Election, & the upcoming Parliament.

1. To #CdnMedia: stop with the "The Election was unnecessary" stuff. The 43rd Parliament WAS dysfunctional, & you had a role to play in that dysfunction, going for controversy & "clicks" over truth...
Going for a majority was not the ONLY reason #PMJT asked the GG to dissolve Parliament. #CPC was playing "chicken" with an election call, for the duration of the Pandemic, & tried to obstruct the Govt's efforts to help as many Cdns as possible. Cdns needed to have their say...
2. @JustinTrudeau @CanadianPM - your Govt needs to communicate with Cdns more effectively. #cdnmedia will not willingly assist in this, so explore other ways, but please strive to get representation on every political pundit panel discussion on News Channels...

A moral society puts people first.
Not wealth.
Not power.
Not nation states.
Not archaic forms of government or law.
Not royal families or venerable castes.
People.
Ordinary people.
Us.

Imagine, after Covid19, a moral world – a world where people matter.

#Imagine
Imagine a world where a hungry child on the other side of the world matters just as much as the child next door. A world where that child’s sister matters too, who works in the fields or on the factory floor when she should still be at school.

Generally speaking #infrastructure is defined as the basic #physical systems of any #business, #region, or that of any #nation... including #transportation systems, #communication #networks, #sewage, #water supply & #electrical #grid systems. #BuildBackBetter #logistics #stimulus
Various types of #infrastructure #construction based projects typically drive the bulk of conversations amongst those of us vested in the arduous process of "progress" moving forward.
#Highway improvement, #street & #road maintenance & #bridge building commonly take center stage.

I started playing #guitar in college. Some of my friends back home played, so I thought I'd learn. It's been years since I kept up with it. With no job and an empty house, I had time. Plus, I could crank up my amp. Ava would have hated it. All the more reason to do it.
#vss365
Strumming a few chords or playing a riff through a loud amp usually makes me feel better. It's more of a distraction this time. My amp is a little old. Even a #ragpicker might pass on it. "If you're not going to play it, sell it," Ava nagged. Life always got in the way.
#vss365
Or I got in the way. Not even ten years ago I kept getting sick all the time. Painful stomach cramps would radiate weakness throughout my body. I learned how to wash it away like healing #rainwater. That's when I really started to figure out who I was and what I could do.

800 million are hungry
1.1 billion are without electricity
3.7 billion are without Internet access

Agriculture producers waste ~30-40% of what they produce (due to lack of warehousing and cold chain infrastructure)
Electricity distributors waste ~20-30% of what they buy from electricity generators (due to poor grid monitoring infrastructure)

A connectivity producer’s waste is not possible to compute because bandwidth is perishable (use it to loose it), but the waste is substantial.
Imagine building internet infrastructure financed by electricity and agriculture waste reduction!

Imagine it becoming feasible to monitor the entire farm to fork supply chain and the electrical grid.

In our house, a #chalupa is a tostada with lettuce, cheese, meat, diced tomato, onions.

Here's one:
In the world of politics, a #chalupa is a onetime @DNC operative.

Here's one:
Now, the worst one ever got from our #homemade #chalupas was a bit of excess #flattus, unless, like me, you pile on the #jalapenos, then maybe there's some burning at the exit!

If #Christians would stop getting in #verbal #disagreements about whether or not to focus #international or here at #home #imagine how much #more would get done as far as #ministry , #activism & #humanitarian #relief is concerned? Think about that. I do both international & here
We need #more #unity in #church . If you got time to #tweet about being #dissatisfied with something, you got time to #pray about it. Same goes for any part of the #government .
Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.”

1. Have been exploring relationship between shift to #RegenerativeEconomy, #SustainableDevelopment + #Diversity, which has led to discussions on tolerance/hate, racism/fascism, political divides. Maybe atypical territory for sustainability, yet it's key imho. Some findings:
2. Beliefs are hard to change, "convincing" people is not a viable tactic, arguing w facts only serves to further entrench if listener isn't seeking to understand. Can be frustrating - feels like arguing against gravity sometimes. Critical to realize I too am entrenched. #Listen
3. Focusing on what's wrong/bad generates energy, but not the energy we need. Better: emphasize real e.g.'s of positive alternatives, while not ignoring horrific realities. Reminds me of #BuckminsterFuller's "build new better system/render old obsolete" guidance. #Evolve

I've been part of the Twitter resistance for a year now. I'm going to share some thoughts about why & how I resist.

Some people may not like some things I say here. I’m sorry for that, but they need to be said. 1 #WhyIResist #HowIResist #RebelScum #TheResistance
Some things in the first year were fun: meeting like-minded people, the #scifi characters, learning how to take effective action. Celebrating #victories like beating the #ACA repeal bills.

A lot of it wasn't fun - the threats of nuclear war, the daily stress of bad news. 2
Follow parties were fun, and a good way to promote a message and raise awareness, connect with other resistors and grow our followings. They had themes and served a purpose and there was about about one a month.  3 #PartyWithAPurpose #trending #amplify #effective

It's #WorldKindnessDay
@nickynoo007 made the brilliant suggestion to #KillBrexitWithKindness
Here's my *stab*: thank you #Brexit for honing my power point skills. In gratitude, I'm posting my top-20 most popular anti-#Brexit/#StopBrexit memes (in no particular order).
1. One of the more recent ones on @DavidDavisMP hypocrisy over his failure to release the Brexit Impact Reports or sector studies or whatever they are, which he testified existed in "excruciating detail"
Release the #BrexitImpactReports #StopBrexit #revokeA50forthwith #FBPE
2. Never has this one on the #Tory Kakistocracy seemed more relevant with @michaelgove throwing #NazaninZaghariRatcliffe under a bus on #Marr to throw a political lifeline to his dangerously incompetent buddy @BorisJohnson
#StopBrexit #exitfrombrexit #revokeA50forthwith #FBPE
