The US military has shot down 4 flying objects over North American airspace over the past 8 days.

3 of the objects remain unidentified as of late Sunday, and were separately shot down within 3 days.

Here’s what we know so far about these 4 objects👇…
Feb. 4: #ChineseSpyBalloon Shot Down
The 1st object was initially reported as unidentified until US officials said it was a Chinese surveillance balloon.

The @WhiteHouse and Pentagon said the balloon had violated US sovereignty by entering US airspace without permission.
The 200 feet-tall balloon was first reported after being seen by civilians in #Montana, after which it was allowed to traverse across the US, despite the maneuverable balloon passing over the site of sensitive airbases and strategic nuclear missile silos.

❗🇺🇲 👀 Some pretty bizarre video emerging from #Montana, USA

However, we are unable to verify the authenticity of the videos.
❗️Update : 👀

NORAD "dispatched a fighter aircraft to examine a radar anomaly they had discovered [above Montana]. These aircraft failed to locate any item to connect the radar hits with. NORAD will keep an eye on the issue "a fresh assertion reads.
❗️Update :👀

US radars over Montana picked up an abnormality; but, when they despatched F-15s Fighters to investigate, they were unable to uncover anything; so NORAD denied discovering any object

Locals continue to insist that they claims seeing of flying object over Montana

Oh my, what a quandary we're in,
With seals, lions, bears,
All dying from a flu so grim,
#H5N1's spreading, we must not give in 🧵
In #Peru, sea lions by the score,
Are falling ill, what's this virus for?
And in #Montana, bears so bold,
Are losing sight, feeling so cold.

L'avvistamento di un "pallone spia" delle dimensioni di 3 scuolabus partito dalla #Cina e arrivato nei cieli #USA suscita nelle opinioni pubbliche occidentali stupore e una certa dose di inquietudine.
Le domande da porsi sull'accaduto sono fondamentalmente tre.
1⃣ Cosa cercavano i cinesi?
2⃣ Perché gli americani hanno tenuto ad informare il mondo del suddetto avvistamento?
3⃣ Cosa potrebbe succedere ora?

La premessa d'obbligo è la seguente: i Paesi si spiano. Lo si fa più o meno allegramente tra Alleati, figurarsi tra antagonisti
indiziati di una prossima resa dei conti. Non è un caso, allora, che il Pentagono abbia confermato che episodi del genere si siano verificati già in passato. Un modo per sottolineare che in discussione non è tanto l'attività di spionaggio, quanto lo strano comportamento

UPDATE: US assesses the high-altitude surveillance balloon is #China's, per a senior defense official

Also, not 1st time #Beijing has done this

"Instances of this activity have been observed over the past several years, including prior to this administration" per the official
Per the senior defense official, in the briefing arranged from the Pentagon, @SecDef "convened senior DoD leadership yesterday, even as he was on the road in the #Philippines"

At the mtg led by @SecDef, @thejointstaff Chair Gen Mark Milley & @USNorthernCmd's Gen Glen VanHerck strongly recommended NOT to shoot down the #China surveillance balloon "due to the risk to safety & security of ppl on the ground from the possible debris" per sr defense official

Il #Pentagono sta seguendo e monitorando un sospetto "pallone spia" cinese che sta sorvolando gli Stati Uniti.
Secondo un alto funzionario della difesa citato dalla CNN, il pallone aerostatico da ricognizione cinese viene seguito dal Pentagono da "diversi giorni".
🚨🇺🇸 Portavoce Pentagono: "Il pallone sta attualmente viaggiando ad un'altitudine ben al di sopra del traffico aereo commerciale e non rappresenta una minaccia militare o fisica per le persone a terra".

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!

Last week bitterly cold air developed over east central Siberia, the likes of which we haven't seen in 40 years this early in December. It was chronicled very well by @ThierryGooseBC on December 6.

Ever since then the weather prediction models have been showing some crazy, downright silly numbers across Canada & the United States. I'm talking record high Mean Sea Level Pressure, both for December & ALL TIME. Here are those MSLP records from @NWSWPC researchers.

For those not used to reading these maps, the values shown are the last three digits of the MSLP. For example, in #Missoula the all-time highest surface pressure observed was 1059.9mb on January 1, 1979. The record for December was 1054.5mb on #ChristmasEve, 1983.

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%

ICYMI: A lot is at stake in this year's midterms📢

Now that the federal constitutional right to abortion is overturned, state policies matter more than ever

5 states have initiatives on the ballot this year that will shape abortion access – a record. Let's talk through them🧵
In terms of protective measures, voters in CA, MI and VT can vote to explicitly protect abortion rights in their state constitutions.

Why does this matter?

💪Strengthens state-level access to abortion

🚫Blocks additional restrictions

🎆Inspires action in other states
Proposition 1 in #California would protect the right to abortion, contraception & cement the state as a leader in abortion protections

It also ensures critical healthcare for 9.2 million women of reproductive age + trans & nonbinary patients + people traveling from other states

NEW: We map where people in #Montana prisons come from, going (where possible) down to the neighborhood level. This is the 12th installment in our series of reports about the geography of mass incarceration. #MTNews #MTPol /1
ICYMI, we also have reports about:
New Jersey
New York

See them here:
Our reports include download-able data tables of incarceration data by city, county, zip code, Census tract, state legislative district, and more.

The reports give researchers the data they need to study how incarceration tracks with other indicators of community health.

Si toda la #ganadería de España fuera extensiva, ¿Dónde iría a pastar? ¿A los prados? ¿A las montañas? ¿No las perjudicaría?🐑🐮 Venga, atención, que ¡os lo contamos!
Pongamos por caso la media #montaña aquí en “casa”, en el sur de Europa. Hasta mediados del siglo XX, los paisajes de la montaña mediterránea eran un mosaico donde las zonas agrícolas tradicionales se mezclaban con el bosque los matorrales, los pueblos....
Desde entonces, el abandono rural de las laderas de las montañas ha ido en aumento, especialmente en los años 60 y 70. Perdemos nuestro paisaje en mosaico. La montaña mediterránea se vuelve más simple y los bosques y matorrales hoy forman grandes masas homogéneas.

In #Montana, the surge of COVID-19 cases is leading to rationed health care at a Helena-area hospital. Hospitals around the region say they are hitting capacity.…
Dr. Shelly Harkins, the president and chief medical officer of Helena’s Saint Peter’s Health made this sobering announcement Thursday morning.

“For the first time in my career we are at the point where not every patient in need will get the care we might wish we could give.”
“Our ICU is 100-percent full, Harkins says. “Our advanced medical unit is 100-percent full, meaning our critical-care resources are at max capacity.”
