Thread: Wearing masks is our best defense against the #coronavirus.

@WhiteHouse press secretary said today that masks are no longer required in West Wing. Many tweets also advise against masks.

Result: Colossal failure of the US #COVID response.

An example of anti-mask rhetoric can be seen in the video below by a Mr. Huff. I will explain why everything that he says here is scientifically incorrect and a danger to public health. (I do not know Mr. Huff or his motivations.)

I am not comparing the US to the several dozen countries that have mostly controlled this epidemic, e.g., #Taiwan, #Iceland, #SouthKorea, #Japan, #Thailand, #NewZealand, #Australia, #Austria, #Switzerland, #Greece, #Norway, etc. Some of them never even had to lock down.

#Germany #Netherlands #Belgium #Luxembourg #Eifel area #Vulcanism

The earth rises in the Eifel. Very little, by a millimeter a year - but for a long time. At the same time, the surface of the earth moves horizontally apart, as if something is pushing upwards from below.
This has been proven for the first time by US scientists. In a study, they evaluated measurement data from thousands of GPS antennas in Western Europe over 20 years - and thus came across new evidence of a still active volcanism in the Eifel region.
"The Eifel is the only region in the study in which the ground movement was significantly larger than expected," says lead author Corné Kreemer from the University of Nevada in Reno. "The results suggest that rising rock material could cause this movement of the soil."

Some thoughts about the small-scale damaging winds in parts of eastern #Luxembourg last Friday (gust of 119 km/h measured in Grevenmacher between 17:40 and 17:50 UTC). Feel free to comment @pgroenemeijer @Djpuco @BramvantVeen!
Thread ⬇️
Some measurements of the weather station located in the western part of Grevenmacher are shown below (source: kachelmannwetter.com/de/messwerte/g…). The relative humidity was relatively low (around 40 %) before the strong winds hit the station. Temperature dropped by about 10 °C afterwards.
Here the radar imagery for the approximate time when winds started to intensify in the area of Grevenmacher. In my opinion, it seems more likely that the small convective cell near the German border to the east of the hailstorm produced a microburst, ...

We hear more and more that one way to defuse the #Karlsruhe#Luxembourg#Frankfurt conflict is to travel via #Berlin:

Let @bundesbank be more *accountable* to @Bundestag
(reuters.com/article/us-ecb…)

Here's a few things we know about the promises and pitfalls of that strategy

1/n
The ECB has a Monetary Dialogue with @EP_Economics in #Brussels & it answers written questions by MEPs

Many see the Dialogue as a talking shop, but it does offer a template

I've been cautiously optimistic about it in the last crisis(as have MEPs)...

2/n
...but there's no denying that @ecb accountability could and should be strengthened

For one, it hinges on the focus and specialization of the parliamentarians who hold the central bank to account, and on the willingness of central bankers to engage in meaningful exchange

🇪🇺🗳️ Quelques commentaires sur les résultats de ces élections européennes en France et dans les grands pays européens. #EUelections2019
🇪🇺🗳️🇫🇷 On commence par la France. Le @RNational_off en tête, c’est évidemment un succès pour #LePen qui, parallèlement à #Macron, avait installé ce duel dans les médias mais aussi dans l’opinion.
🇪🇺🗳️🇫🇷 Le RN a bénéficié de la très grande solidité de son électorat : 78% des électeurs de @MLP_officiel au premier tour de la présidentielle de 2017 ont voté pour la liste @RNational_off.

At an #EU Arab League summit in #Egypt, #Luxembourg Prime Minister @Xavier_Bettel told Arab leaders “he was married to a man" and would face capital punishment in many of their countries. google.com/amp/s/amp.fran… #LGBTQ 🌈
Centre-right politician Bettel became the first European Union leader to enter into a same-sex union after he married his partner Gauthier Destenay, a Belgian architect, in 2015. #LGBTQ
I am happy for Rami Malek and his Oscar on a personal level. However: I truly disliked Bohemian Rhapsody AND I wish he had mentioned the #Egyptian #LGBTQ community in his award speech.He portrayed a queer man and the queer community in Egypt has faced the worst crackdown ever. 🌈

🔥 My first academic article about the populist radical right in the media in #Belgium #Netherlands & #Luxembourg is out now in the International Journal of Press/Politics. 🔥
doi.org/10.1177/194016…
👇
I interviewed 46 EICs in the Benelux & asked them how they deal with right-wing #populism. Turns out that there are huge differences:
In Wallonia & Luxembourg, journalists adhere to strict ostracism. In Flanders & Netherlands, they are more accommodating.

Layman summary:
Best way to end 2018! It’s been a loooooong journey.
Thanks to all the interviewees who took time to speak to me @ADnl @telegraaf @volkskrant @nrc @trouw @NOS @100komma7 @Wort_LU @tageblatt_lu @demorgen @RTBF @destandaard @letzjournal @lesoir @WOXXHEBDO etc.
