Most recents (24)

1. New county-level #risk indicators released by @CDCgov last night.

Here's your look at weekly #transmission levels since Feb 24.

After looking much better in March, we're continuing to see rates of newly reported cases increasing in most US regions.
2. But, as has been the case for a while, when basing risk level on #hospitalization rates and hospital capacity, at least visually, the story is very different.
3. This shows CHANGE in each metric yesterday compared to 1 week prior. Many more places worsening than improving.

14% of the population worsened on the hospital-based measure; only 1% improved.

23% of the population worsened on the transmission-based measure; only 6% improved.

@MayorFrey signed Emergency Regulation 2022-7 immediately lifting the City’s mask requirement established in Emergency Regulation No. 2022-1, which has been in place since January 5, 2022. #Minneapolis
Yet,in local "news"articles it states "The City of Minneapolis will continue to uphold mask mandates for City employees and City-managed buildings. Visitors and employees in City-managed buildings will still be "required" to wear a mask.
Exactly what are "City Managed Buildings" enforcing?
Emergency Regulation 2022-1 is hereby rescinded and has no continuing applicability or effect!

Kobe Dimock-Heisler (an autistic man) would have turned 24 today had he not been fatally shot by Brooklyn Center police officers Cody Turner and Brandon Akers on August 31, 2019 while they responded to a mental crisis call. (BCPD Steven Holt & Joseph Vu were on scene as well)
The killing of Kobe Dimock-Heisler wasn't widely known to the public until convicted felon Kim Potter killed #DaunteWright during the #DerekChauvinTrial. Potter was the police association pres & directed Kobe's shooters to "shut [their] body warns off & don't talk to each other."
“Autism is not a crime…This is why the police department needs to be defunded.” — Jason Heisler

In August '20, a year after he was #KilledByPolice, hundreds gathered outside the Hennepin County Government Center demanding justice for #KobeDimockHeisler.…

OTD in 1959, after taking a shot from Andy Bathgate in the nose, Jacques Plante leaves the game & returns wearing a mask.

This is a (mega) thread to Plante & to the mask wearers who followed. Some great goalies/masks do not appear & some appear more than once.

Gerry Cheevers and his iconic mask. The first to have markings on it. #NHLBruins

I considered doing a thread just on Michel Dion's mask.

THREAD: Vigils across America demanding action against #Pakistan for its inhuman treatment of Hindus & other minorities. The @chingariproject calls on all communities to join this movement to bring an end to abduction, forced conversion to Islam & rape of young girls in Pakistan.
Every day, in #Pakistan, 3 girls from the minority communities are kidnapped, forcibly converted and "married" off, often as 2nd and 3rd wives of Muslim men.
Many of these girls are as young as 12 and the men they are married off to, in their 30s and 40s. 2/n
Vigil participants in #Tampa #Florida, shared details of the atrocities committed on #Hindu, #Sikh and other minorities in #Pakistan. Many onlookers said that while they aware of Pakistan's toxic role in Afghanistan, few had heard about the crimes being committed within Pakistan.

No matter what Ilhan Omar, Squad members, and Progressives tell you, the fact is they are moving to DEFUND THE POLICE.

In #Minneapolis, they are doing so on the ballot.

They don’t have a plan for the day after. They are trying to obscure this reality with fluffy language.
Here’s a look at the language to defund the police, take away the mayor’s role in public safety, and give new sweeping powers to the #Minneapolis City Council — all of whom are on record in support of defunding the police.
If you ask me, voters should clearly understand if the police department will be shuttered this December.

Any plan to form a public health conscious public safety force (whatever that means) would need funding.

There is no mechanism to fund their fantasy. It is a train wreck.

(A Thread, as promised, to remake my pinned tweet.)
Last year was the intro into a new reality.

I am going to post some links, some links I post will not have any description because the overlords do not like definitions. (The newspeak dictionary is not complete yet.)

First up, while no one was looking Gov Tim was deciding 👇
"Placing Children At The Center of Government" was a great idea.

He executed EO19-34 (rescinded 11-05) and rebuilds his Children's Cabinet.
He also established his Children's Cabinet "Advisory Council" which per law can obtain funding from private 👇…

What do Eric Swalwell and #Minnesota CD-5 Rep Ilhan Omar have in common? Their flirtation with foreign interests pose a national security threat and they serve on the House intel and foreign affairs committees, respectively. I discussed it with @Nefertari_25 on @OANN
