On the newest episode of the #HoosLeft podcast, I welcome our good friend @LinearRadio back to the show for an early look at the state of the 2024 races for Senate and Governor in #Indiana.… via @acast
We start with the Senate race and have a look at @RepJimBanks, a Jan 6 seditionist, bully, perjurer, and founder of the ridiculously stupid "anti-woke caucus." He would be @GovRonDeSantis' mini-me if the Pinochet from Tampa Bay wasn't so mini already.
And this bozo, who would be funny if he weren't so dangerous, does not yet have a Democratic opponent. @INDems, where are we? Who is gonna be our @SenFettermanPA, our @SenSherrodBrown? Image

🚨 Field Work, March 3-4, 2023 🚨

This week @PurdueAg @PurdueEngineers Prof. @caitlin_h2o, as well as students Rasul & @aliya_ehde visited the #Ohio and #Pennsylvania to sample creeks and understand "what's changed since last week".

Observations are below.

During the trip, the team collected creek water from creeks upstream of the train derailment site, including in #Pennsylvania.

They also went to several other creeks in Ohio, no "sheens" were observed there.

It was pouring out....

Kudos to Professor @caitlin_h2o for leading the team... the #rain! 🌧️

Hey #Indiana, on last week's #HoosLeft podcast, I wrestled with whether or not the Democratic Party is the best route for progressive change.
I decided that, imperfections and all, the nature of our system yields two parties. If we want to change that, we need to use the infrastructure already in place to gain the power do so.
The authoritarian far-right are way too close to realizing all their goals and I fear the hour is too late to try and build something altogether new.

Hey there #Indiana, we need to talk about the @indgop supermajority and their shameful version of Florida's "Don't Say Gay" law.…
#HB 1608 passed in the House last Thursday and will move onto the Senate this week. This disgraceful bill stigmatizes trans kids, as if they weren't struggling enough already.
#Hoosier #Republicans, already using state funds to subsidize religious education and already-wealthy private school parents, have now seen fit to single out the 0.006% of kids that identify as trans.

A good Sunday morning to you #HoosierTwitter. In this week's Substack article, we're talking about the #SuperBowl…
Not to be a bummer, but the National Football League is a pretty horrific organization. You might not notice if you're only watching on Sundays, but if you look between the headlines, you'll find a multi-billion dollar empire built on exploitation. Image
Like the #MagicEye puzzles of the 90's, the underlying suffering is invisible unless seen from the right angle. Image

1) Trump won't be able to terminate the US Constitution but a Republican-led effort to rewrite it continues… Trump's "allies are busy pushing an unprecedented rewrite of the foundational document that would fundamentally alter Americans' daily lives."
2) "In 2022, a group with ties to Trump's orbit was able to get four more states to join its efforts."

"@CommonCause is trying both to thwart any new convention pushes alongside repealing old resolutions calling a convention."… Support them!

2022 #Midterms Simulation: #ArtoftheGerrymander

A Republican House win will be built on gerrymanders (TX/GA/FL/TN/LA, etc.)

To illustrate the need for fair maps, I'm calculating the results using the 2022 votes, but if every state had a Democratic gerrymander. #ElectionTwitter ImageImageImageImage

I’ll apply the difference in Presidential margin to the House result. Thanks @davesredist @mikemathieu @vest_team + @DKElections @PoliticsWolf

Keen to see how my maps perform over the decade; tried to comply with state law if partisan intent were allowed to stand.
#ArtoftheGerrymander: #Alabama
Trump 62.0% - Biden 36.6%
Real delegation: 6R-1D
Gerrymandered: 5R-2D
Δ Share of D seats: 14% => 28%

(THREAD) This one stings. Rex Early, a longtime Indiana GOP activist and donor, has died, according to the Indy Star. Early was Trump's spokesman in the 2016 Trump Indiana campaign. Early was 88. #ingov #insen #indiana (1)…
Early was a former state rep in the 1960s and a Marine vet. He became Reagan's Indiana campaign chair in the 1980s. In 1991, he became party chair and raised money to stave off the state GOP's insolvency. (2)
Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb (R) said if you wanted to run for office in Indiana, you approached Rex: "From dog catcher to U.S. President, lines formed at his door for an endorsement." #insen #ingov (3)

They keep telling us, why won’t we listen?

I was caught a bit off guard at the Zionsville Seniors night for the woman's soccer team. It was a beautiful event where the seniors were introduced along with their families.
Each senior provided their college or next step after high school, a favorite quote, and their most memorable soccer memory. They then played recordings from old coaches, friends, families, neighbors, and anyone else. Some were brief, while others were longer and hilarious.
What stood out to me the most was our kids' memories, the values they hold tightest, and their impact didn’t include any scores. Many groups have been vocal about focusing on core academia, stopping with all the emotional and feeling stuff, and getting back to educating.

Did you know Daylight Savings Time is bad for your health?

💔Spring forward increases heart attack risk
✈️DST induces "social jet lag"
😰Social jet lag worsens depression
🧭Westward living in a time zone (Indiana) is worst

So why do we do it and what should we do now?

A 🧵
DST was created by an Entomologist 🐞 (George Hudson)

He did this because he wanted more time to collect insects after his shift-work job at the post office!

Similar to needing more time to mow my lawn after work...but what about the health considerations?
Several countries implemented DST during WW1 including 🇬🇧 and 🇩🇪

The practice aimed to cut artificial lighting use so troops could conserve fuel for the war. But the 🇺🇸 didn't standardize the system until 1966, when it passed the Uniform Time Act.
