The clue is in the name, but how will they be equipped, trained and employed? Read on…

(2/6) The Black Horse Squadron's main weapon will be the FGM 148 #Javelin - you've probably heard of it.

With optical and #thermal sights, It can lock onto and destroy #tanks up to 4km away, either in direct or ‘Top Attack’ mode.

(3/6) They will also have the NLAW and LASM for closer quarters or in complex terrain.

With a range of 20-800m, NLAW can also #target the sides or top of enemy #tanks.

Yesterday, a Telegram channel associated with the #WagnerGroup posted a call for recruits:

"The Wagner Philharmonic has decided to take part in the Great World Concert and is holding auditions to select for its touring musical troupe."

A 🧵 on #Wagner & what the post reveals.
1. Some background: Russian #VDV Airborne #Spetsnaz commander Dmitry Utkin adopted the callsign "Wagner" in the first Russian incursion in #Donbas in 2014, a triple entendre indicating his position as "conductor" of off-book scouts and saboteurs now known as the #WagnerGroup.
2. Much has been made of Wagner's affiliation with neo-Nazi movements in #Russia. But the cultural weave of Russian mercenaries is more nuanced.

"Wagner" also refers to the German composer's valorization during the #ThirdReich by Adolf Hitler & Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels.

We are angry and alarmed at reports that our own elected representatives chose to turn down an EU offer of visa-free touring by British musicians, after reassurances that our £101.5bn #CreativeArts and £5.8bn #MusicIndustry were a priority.

As the Musicians' Union, with 32,000 members, we have been campaigning for the #MusiciansPassport to make sure #musicians and #crew can keep #WorkingInTheEU without extra cost and admin.

The Culture Minister must urgently confirm one way or another whether it was the UK Government that blocked the deal which would have granted UK musicians easy access to #EuropeanUnion states for #touring.

I was asked what steps we are taking at rehearsals for @CotWChoir to sing together during #COVIDー19 times. I can't find the original question from @PollyRocket but here are our answers. Please feel free to share with other #choirs #musicians #musictherapists #singers (THREAD)
1. One way system to enter the building, only one person in the loos at a time. Regular anti bac etc.

2. Masks on whilst walking around the building. Can take off once in their seat. Choir members have an assigned seat and remain there (no swapping).
3. 2m apart from each other if talking inside, 1m+ if outside

4. 3m apart for singing spacing. Current guidance says 2m or 1m+ with mitigations, but we are sticking to 3m.

5. 4m from the first row of singers to the conductor and pianist.

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.
#RandomThoughts
Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

#JollofMusic101 Dear Upcoming Artiste: Basic Music Industry Terms you Should Know

3) Indie Labels:
These are self-funded labels that is NOT affiliated to any Big Three Record Label. Affiliation in this regard could be seen in the case of Mr Eazi’s Banku Music label liaising...
Universal Music Group Nigeria & South Africa. After his affiliation with Wizkid’s StarBoy Records in 2016.

Indie Labels often operate solo and an example of one would be #RicHassani’s label called Riverland Records.

Let's start our #GlobalEChats on #music!

Among our #discussion topics: 1. #Stakeholders in music and what happens to them? 2. #Production of music 3. #Consumption of music 4. New #technology out there!
Firstly, let's talk about how scary #technology and #advancement can be to #music.

Some stats:
The US lost $12.5 billion a year in total sales due to pirated music.

71k jobs were lost; $2.7bn in annual earnings; $1.1bn of that would have been earned by the industry.

But as with any #tech #disruption, there are always negative externalities.

In the #music industry, most of the bad press came from #piracy. Sites like Napster and P2P torrenting were rampant back in the day.
