Nazis came to her door, shot men in her yard, and took her father. The 8-year-old lost it all in #WWII and only a leap from a train saved her from a death camp. What kept her going? Indomitable will. A tribute to that survivor~My Mother nationalgeographic.com/history/2020/0… @NatGeo #MothersDay
Under Nazi & Soviet occupation, my Polish mom was one of millions of children who suffered unimaginable horrors-and forged grit to survive.
A tribute to Last Voices of a generation @anneapplebaum @sikorskiradek @121Dulag @USEmbassyWarsaw @PolishEmbassyUS @1944pl @MNKrk @PolandMFA
I encourage you to read our whole Last Voices of #WWII @NatGeoMag package. Here's a letter from editor-in-chief @susanbgoldberg about why stories from WWII’s last survivors matter now more than ever: nationalgeographic.com/magazine/2020/#VEDay75 #VEDay

I'm about to launch at ten part thread on making #maps of #Coronavirus. Hang on to your #COVID19 facemasks 0/10
Coronavirus map tips 1/10 use an appropriate #projection. It's for #thematic data so needs to be equal area. Web Mercator does not support the map's purpose. Distortions lead to people over- or under-estimating size of areas relative to one another.
Coronavirus map tips 2/10 don't map totals on a #choropleth. Impact of differently sized regions & population densities makes comparison between areas meaningless. Totals can heighten fear. 65,000 seems an awful lot. Do 5 provinces really belong in the same upper data class?

A convo not too long about how Arkansas and Kansas happened ("Ar-Can-Saw" and "Kan-zas"), got me to thinking we don't talk nearly as much as we should about how names are used to erase histories. So sit back #NativeTwitter, lemme tell you about the #Caribbean.
First, Conquerors and Settlers frequently have no idea what they're talking about. That should be fairly obvious. It's why the Lakota are also "the Sioux" and the Lenape are also "The Deleware". It's all gibberish and nonsense when settler naming gets involved.
So it is with "Kansas" and "Arkansas". One's French and the other's Spanish/English for 'Land of the Kansa'. See, easy, two states, whose pronunciations were popularized by two different phonemic culture groups, and the same spelling suddenly gets all nonsensical.

THREAD. For years and years, everyone was sure that in 1086, at the time of the Domesday Survey, hardly anyone lived in the Cambridgeshire fenland. So here’s the story of what I found out when I tested that belief & the data it rested on...
2. Well, of course, people are inevitably influenced by what they expect to find - and everyone knew that the 8thC lives of saints, the earliest documentary sources, described ‘the manifold horrors of the wide wilderness’... the trouble with that was...
3. ... that the people who wrote those lives consciously modelled their biographies on those of other saints, & on the life of Christ who had spent 40 days in the wilderness. So, were the biographers of Æthelthryth & Guthlac describing actual or religious landscapes?

Il y a 2-3 ans, j'ai commencé à "collectionner" et à renseigner dans une base de données des pochettes de disques dans l'optique de rédiger sur #spacefiction un billet portant sur l'usage des cartes (et globes) sur ces dernières... Corpus de pas loin 200 pochettes à ce jour ! 1/4
Et puis, le temps me manquant, j'ai mis le projet de côté... Je le prendrai très certainement plus tard, et d’ailleurs, de temps en temps, quand je tombe dessus, je rajoute encore des pochettes au dossier. 2/4
Mais en attendant, plutôt que de les laisser sur mon disque dur, j'ai décidé de les partager ici et de me lancer dans un #thread au long cours. Il y a des albums de tous les styles de musiques et des artistes de tous les niveaux. 3/4

(So 3rd attempt writing this thread. Now condensed)

#DnD World Building thread:

I'm writing up a largely sandy island for a #DnD5e campaign 🏝 The island is loosely shaped like a spear head, with a mountain ridge running along what might be seen as the spears ridge / fuller 🗡
I love the phonetic sounds of the Arabic language for this location. I'm currently thinking the island is called internationally as Al 'Ard Ramali. Which roughly translates to The Land of the Spear. Is that too many syllables for a countries name? Does it flow? ⁉
At the very tip of the island (the pointy end), is the capital, a large trading port city that is literally & physically split in two ⚓ It is known for trading in exotic items, precious metals & precious gems. Due to the desert environment that largely covers the island, food...

THREAD #Russia 14 POINTS #Maps+ critical #Geography #Geopolitics. Here is my hot take on “Understanding Russia,” a new book by Marlene Laruelle (@PONARS) and Jean Radvanyi (2018). I hardly agree w/ all "French Eurasia" & "anti-Russophobe" arguments; it IS worth a CLOSE read. 1/16
1. (1814/5-2014) Talleyrand 1814-5 & Keynes 1919 argument, & vs. Obama’s “regional” neo-containment (2008-14): Defeated Russia’s greatpowerness (derzhavnost’) is NOT avoidable. Sidelining a mil-nuclear & gas-rich power is dangerous. (Merkel: re: Putin in “another world.”) 2/16
2. (1954-91) One can consider, for the sake of argument, a postwar Moscow-Paris-Washington axis. The “disease” that neo-Empire Russia(ns) have is "trauma," a kind of geo-body loss, historically akin to French postcolonial retrenchment in proto-EU after the Algerian War. 3/16

At dinner, I learned more about corruption + racism built into society by our masters. A book we discussed (Zinn) was used as part of this "Left" resource's bibliography. I had to share. [A thread]

@BlackSocialists - thoughts on this resource?

historyisaweapon.com/indextrue.html
It very simply lays out the case that we are all being controlled. It covers hidden history of the United States including their (and, due to the systems created by our masters, our) racism.

If you haven't been in school for a while (or are in a terrible school), some of the words might trip you up. Dictionary.com and Wikipedia.org are two good resources to help you.
