There's no news of #Modi's visit to the #US when you turn on #CNN on TV in India.

So I looked up #NBC online.

I had to scroll past 11 screens to find any news of Modi's visit.

#XiJinping, on the other hand, was on the first screen.

These are the first six screens.

#ClintEastwood turned 93 yesterday; a 🧵on Spaghetti Westerns, Clint's role in 'Per un Pugno di Dollari' (A Fistful of Dollars) and the subversive after-effects of the film that re-defined the Western. #ClintEastwood93today Image
In the summer of 1964, a TV actor who starred in a prime time Western serial was looking for distraction in films. The show was 'Rawhide', and its star Clint Eastwood, who played the impulsive, sometimes hot-tempered, but generally sweet-natured 'Rowdy Yates' felt he’d stagnated. Image
So, at 34, Eastwood decided upon a risky gamble: take a leap into the unknown by imposing trust in an obscure Italian director named Sergio Leone and travel to Rome to do an obscure “European Western” called 'Per un Pugno di Dollari.' Image

Have a great weekend! Below everything you want to know about #ChatGPT. Thank you Vered! I will add my #thread, with some information about #EU's reaction to ChatGPT.
#ChatGPT created by #OpenAI can carry out conversations, write texts on many topics, perform complex tasks: writing code &planning an event. #Italy's privacy watchdog asked to temporarily ban ChatGPT since the information collected & sent to #chatbot is in violation of #GDPR. 1/1
#ChatGPT unlawfully "fed" the personal data of millions of users to process its replies. @GPDP_IT opened an investigation against #OpenAI: the lack of information to users whose data are collected,absence of a legal basis justifying the massive collection/storage of #data 1/2

Derek Jarman´s "Caravaggio": Chiaroscuro, Baroque and the ashes of Pasolini.
#DerekJarman, was a bold and unapologetic filmmaker and artist, highly influenced by Pier Paolo #Pasolini, whose work he emulated in his career. 1.- Image
@Dexfletch 2.-His films, such as "#Caravaggio," pay homage to Pasolini's aesthetic and thematic concerns, while also reflecting his experiences and perspectives as a #gay artist living in #Thatcher's #Britain.
3.-"Caravaggio" is a visually stunning and thematically rich film that remains a highlight of Jarman's career. It is a meditation on the power of #art to transcend time and space, as well as the ephimeral nature of #fame and #celebrity.

Somalis are affronted by the abhorrent agenda of #Amhara agitators who are attempting to rewrite our ancestors’ #history. As an ardent #PanSomalist whose adamantly against any agenda of #Abyssinians I’d like to address revisionism of our history by Amharas with amble evidence-1/9
From 1529 to 1543 #Somali ruler from #Adal empire named Ahmed #Gurey aka Ahmed #Gran annihilated #Amhara army after many assaults. Ahmed also roamed freely across #Abyssinia for almost two decades and pillaged at will. Ashamedly #Amhara emperor Lebna Dengel run away as coward-2/9
As anticipated emperor #Dengel asked military aid from his #Portuguese ally as he wasn’t able to face Somalis alone. This will become a familiar theme for #Amharas who are actually accustomed to begging military aid from foreign allies against Somalis for almost six centuries-3/9

#Ukraine/#Russia 🇺🇦🇷🇺:

The 🇳🇱#Netherlands and the 🇨🇿#Czechia are currently preparing two other projects in the field of air defence and artillery for 🇺🇦#Ukraine.

Thread🧶 1/x

@oryxspioenkop @Rebel44CZ @secretsqrl123 @ukraine_map @OSINTua @UAWeapons @LivFaustDieJung
I think the projects will go in the same direction as the current rebuild of 90 T-72 tanks or the production of 115 MR-2 systems. That is, the production and coordination of the projects will be done in 🇨🇿#Czechia, while the 🇳🇱#Netherlands will largely finance the projects.

Now let's see what anti-aircraft systems the 🇨🇿#Czech Republic can offer:

1) Production of additional MR-2 systems.

The MR-2 is a very short-range anti-aircraft system designed primarily to shoot down 🇮🇷#Iranian Shahed-136 (Geran-2) drones.

In 2011, the 🇨🇿#Czech company #Retia presented a demonstrator of the upgraded 2K12 #Kub complex. The main change was the replacement of the original #3M9M3 missiles with 🇮🇹#Italian #MBDA #Aspide 2000 missiles, which are based on the 🇺🇸#US AIM-9E #Sparrow.

The missiles have maximum speed of Mach 4, range of 25km and have a 32kg warhead.
Missiles were now housed in compact launch containers, thus eliminating the need for constant loading onto launch rails and stacking on transport/loading vehicles. SURNCZ radar was used for guidance Photo by Jiří TintěraPhoto by Jiří TintěraPhoto by Jiří TintěraPhoto by Jiří Tintěra
This modernized complex has never been accepted into service by the 🇨🇿#Czech Army, and currently the original 2K12 Kub is waiting to be replaced by the 🇮🇱#Israeli #Spyder system by #Rafael on the #Tatra 815-7 chassis.

1. On Dec. 4, 1939 In Ibrahim al-Mukhtar was appointed as Mufti for #Eritrea. Although #Italian Adm. suggested to bring an Islamic cleric from #Libya to take charge of Islamic affairs, local leaders rejected the idea & pushed for the appointment of Shiek Ibrahim al-Mukhtar. Sheik Ibrahim al-Mukhtar, Center
2. In 1969 Sheik Ibrahim al-Mukhtar passed away due to illness but then Governor Asrate Kassa refused to appoint any of the Muslim community's nominees for Mufti, and the Derg continued this policy until 1991.
3. After the Independence of #Eritrea, the gov reestablished Muslim institutions, including the office of Mufti, Shari'a courts, & regional #Islamic councils (Mejlis al-Awkaf). In 1992 Sheik Alamin Osman became Mufti of Eritrea & served as a Mufti until his death in May 2017.

How the EU provides lifebelts for autocratic regimes
My latest piece published by @IPGJournal on the saga of #EU financial penalties for #Hungary and why the story will end with a weak compromise.
Key arguments in THREAD below 1/19
@gmfus @GoodLobbyProfs…
Over the past two years the European Commission significantly improved its toolkit designed to enhance #RuleOfLaw & impose sanctions over Member States disregarding fundamental EU values.
The suspension of #ERRF/#RecoveryFund & the triggering of the #ConditionalityRegulation against Hungary’s government left the impression that the Commission drew its lessons from its decade long failure.

This afternoon, a MQ-9 Reaper drone was shot-down by #Libyan National Army near #Benghazi. It was armed & approached #Benina air base from southwest. It is still not known whooperated this drone. First footage shows it falling to the ground while second shows its wreckage👇
Here are images of its wreckage. According to the spokesman of #Libyan National Army, the drone was armed which makes it highly possible to be operated by #USAF however #Italian Air Force & #RoyalAirForce also had their MQ-9 Reaper drones flown over #Libya within past few months.
This video shows final moment of the MQ-9 Reaper drone in question before crashing to the ground near #Benina Air Base at #Benghazi. It is said that the #Libyan National Army has used a medium-range air defense system to shoot it down. The system in question is possibly Buk M2E!

Italian deliveries to Ukraine: to report them or not? A (small) thread:

I often read in the comments to my tweets that perhaps I should not post about our delivery flights to Ukraine. I understand the writer's fears about the safety of our flights and our guys, but they are 1/7
unfounded fears. For these reasons:

- The flights I report have active transponders; anyone can log on and check the status of the flights;
- our flights (like those of the allies) follow safe routes, there is no risk of anyone getting strange ideas about them; 2/7
- even though we follow secure routes, additional security measures are taken on every single flight (everyone does it);
- some of our flights (the most important ones) are not detectable by me, or anyone else publicly (ok, it's a bit more complex talk). 3/7

🍻New paper published on @BDCC_MDPI, collab. w. @mvitevit and @Fede_Botta:
Cognitive Networks Extract Insights on COVID-19 Vaccines from English and Italian Popular Tweets: Anticipation, Logistics, Conspiracy and Loss of Trust
@BDCC_MDPI @mvitevit @Fede_Botta We investigate almost 5k Popular tweets about #COVID19 and #vaccines from early 2021.
Remember when vaccines were announced?
How did massively read content frame vaccines? With which stances and emotions?
We use #cognitive networks and #machinevision to address these points!
We found #emotional #polarisation in the framing of "vaccines" in English tweets.
Emotions like trust and anticipation co-existed with negative emotions of sadness and anger.
A circumplex model corroborated this dichotomy. These emotions rose from discussions about cases/deaths:

The serial number of the Tochka-U missile that killed 50 people at the train station in #Kramatorsk [temporarily occupied by the #Kiev regime] indicates that the missile belongs to the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
The screenshot of the number of the missile was taken from the youtube channel of the #Italian TV channel TG La7

The serial number of the Tochka-U missile can be seen:

Before the terrorist attack in Kramatorsk by the #Kiev regime, Ukrainian missiles Ш91565, Ш91566 were used in other terrorist attacks against residents of #Donbas. The same series as in #Kramatorsk.
