F#cking ru shahed drones in Kyiv.
An air raid alert wake up Kyiv citizens at 2:12 am.
Newcomers say that we, UA citizens who stay in Ukraine, are #unbreakable. It is partly true. We are doing #NewYearsEve preparation between the russian/iranian shahed drones attack at night and the russian massive missiles strike during the day.
Pure adrenaline. 24/7 since Feb 24.

1. finished 2020 with a ‘death spiral’ left staying with parents after stepfather cruelly told youngest daughter that rangers can come along & have ‘Bear’ put down for barking. I tweeted he was a d*%k -my brother replied ‘we will turn on you’ WTF! I deleted the tweet & pic of him
2) As if I couldn’t be any lower in the ‘food chain’ my so called brothers with expensive homes like my parents were going to turn on me like a pack of hyenas. So when my parents were out I packed everything & hit the road with little $ . Slept in the car with Bear ImageImage
3) Finally ended up at my youngest who lost her job again 😢on #NewYearsEve in her garage rental in Sydney where at least I had a shower & coloured my hair to look decent...never want to see my parents again nor my brothers..I will survive with my daughters & Bear ImageImage

THREAD: Alright, some real talk. The TL;DR -- I actually had a tremendous year and, from a historical perspective, 2020 was not the worst year in human history (even though it was quite bad overall -- look it up). #NewYearsEve
I continued to live a dream career at NewsBusters cited by people I could have only dreamed of, named the employee of the year, and another year in which I'm thankful for my health, therapist, church, parents, and stamina. I've continued to be a voice for mental health...
...and a small part of the political world where people -- for some reason -- listen and care about what I have to say. Many times, I've felt run down, used, and wasn't sure whether my life was worth it (but not anything like 2015 and 2016). I've also worked more than ever.

(📸: Anindya Chattopadhyay/BCCL Delhi)
#NGT has ordered imposition of a total ban on sale or use of all kinds of firecrackers in Delhi-NCR or any other city or town across the country where the average ambient air quality from November 9-10 to the midnight of Nov 30-Dec 1 falls under the 'poor' and above category.
A bench of #NGT Chairperson Adarsh Kumar Goel passed the order on a batch of petition seeking remedial action against the use and sale of firecrackers amid the double whammy of pollution crisis and rising #coronavirus infections.

You have come to a training season and a new day. You must understand the path of the wind in the spirit. It is time to fly and soar; you will soar with wings like an eagle.


@PstTayo In your walk with God, it is time to fly, it is time to soar, your light has come and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. The Lord is giving you the capacity to exceed your natural limits.


@PstTayo Say unto the barren, the time of your barrenness is over. Everything that is grounded will arise, it is time to arise and shine. There will be a constant download of the heart and mind of the Lord.

11,017 people in Illinois with low-level marijuana convictions had their records expunged on #NewYearsEve.

Marijuana will be legal there starting January 1, and they're the first of ~116,000 people set to have their possession convictions pardoned under the new law.
Black people are over 3x more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession than white people, says an @ACLU study of 2001-10 policing.

That’s despite similar usage rates.

In Illinois, the disparity was even higher (Black people were almost 8x more likely to be arrested).
@ACLU 11 states + DC have legalized recreational marijuana, and several are expunging possession convictions.

According to the @ACLU:
- 574K arrests for drug possession in 2015 alone
- Black people 2.5x more likely to be arrested
- Convictions block people from jobs, loans + benefits

If you're one of the people that (mistakenly) believes this #NewYearsEve represents the last day of a decade, @JArchive has conclusive proof refuting that belief... 1/
@JArchive On the second @Jeopardy episode of the Trebek era, back in 1984, Final Jeopardy asked for the "calendar date with which the 20th century began."

All three contestants responded with "January 1, 1900." All three contestants were ruled incorrect. 2/
@JArchive @Jeopardy Of course, the first date of the 20th century was January 1, 1901. Which makes the first date of the 2020s January 1, 2021 -- just over 365 days from now. 3/

2019 carries special significance to people of HK. #HKers are all awakened from our ordinary lives and search for justice. We stand up tall to reclaim our city, which is now nibbled by the authoritarian regime. Just a few hours before #NewYear2020, it will be a tough year for us.
When our education minister just put pressure on schools to fire all “problematic” teachers. Teaching materials are now censored. A pregnant lady was badly treated even before #NewYearsEve, and more prosecutions are on the way.
But in newyear, I see hope in HKers & other freedom lovers of the world. HKers do not fight alone. This is a global fight against the authoritarian expansion of CCP worldwide. We don’t want basic freedoms, human rights & democratic systems fall prey to #beijing’s manipulation.

To Kick off 2020, I'll be tweeting 20 WEIRD & WONDERFUL OBJECTS FROM HISTORY, starting with #20: an 18th-century jeweled skeleton from the Waldsassen Basilika in Germany, the “Sistine Chapel of Death.” Photo by Paul Koudounaris's book Heavenly Bodies:
#19 of 20 WEIRD & WONDERFUL OBJECTS FROM HISTORY for 2020: a Victorian alarm clark which served as a “memento mori,” reminder of death. Perfect for tonight's #NewYearsEve countdown! It's currently housed at the
@sciencemuseum in London.
@sciencemuseum #18 of 20 WEIRD & WONDERFUL OBJECTS FROM HISTORY for 2020: a 440-pound heart from a blue whale, the largest known animal to ever exist. The heart was so large that technicians from @ROMtoronto had to douse it in over 1,000 gallons of formaldehyde before plastination could begin.

Financial resolutions for the new year.

Start the new year by creating new financial habits with small attainable goals that will guide you towards your larger financial goals.

Consider the following financial goals for the new year:
#NewYearsEve #lastdayof2019
1. Create a budget.
A budget will help guide your financial habits. Create a budget for every new goal you set to keep you from overspending with your resolutions.
2. Get out of debt.
Set up a debt payment plan that will speed up the process and work towards clearing out your debts. You may also choose to reward yourself along the process to help you stay motivated.

US Amb. to Iraq & remaining staff at US Embassy leave Baghdad through the Iraqi capital's International Airport.

This follows recent U.S. airstrikes targeting #Iran-backed Kata'ib Hezbollah positions & Tehran-backed groups vowing retaliation.
Dec 31 - Baghdad, #Iraq
Supporters of #Iran-backed Kata'ib Hezbollah burning American flags and attempting to storming the U.S. Embassy, according to Sky News Arabia.
Hundreds of Iraqis, shouting “Down, down USA!” attempt to storm the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad following U.S. airstrikes this week that killed dozens of members from an #Iran-backed militia in Iraq.

My take:
Tehran-linked groups organized this rally.…

It’s almost the start of a new year and I want to advice that we all check our circles! If you can’t boast of one person that’ll massage your pain when life gives you a knock, you’re fucked! And I want to say this to my friends or whoever I’m involved with.
If I’m in anyway hindering you from moving ahead in life or reaching your full potential for any reason whatsoever, please cut me off. No harm no foul! I would do the same if I were you. Your own peace and happiness comes first.
Make sure whatever relationships you are having with people be it romantic, friendship or any kind of relationship at all add values to your life. Nobody has died of cutting off toxic and unbeneficial relationships.

🔥The #bushfirecrisis in #Australia is no joke🔥

#Mallacoota THREAD

These arresting images are from residents of the small town of #Mallacoota at 10.30AM!!!! as they huddled on a wharf and watched flames come towards them from multiple fronts.

cc: @GretaThunberg
@GretaThunberg @AlexandriaV2005 @ClimateKristin @SameeraSavarala @EricHolthaus @MikeHudema @MichaelEMann @ap4ca @350Australia @GeraldKutney @KHayhoe #Mallacoota is a small town of about 4000 people in the state of #Victoria. There's one road in/out of town but no-one could use it to evacuate. Everyone was ordered to the town wharf to wait out the #bushfire, sitting ready in life jackets.
Read 19 tweets’s #NewYearsEve You, along w James Clapper, @Comey and others have done more damage (according to sources) in the past few years to our nation’s foundation and security than anything @realDonaldTrump has said on Twitter. What about the unmaskings, leaking
Classified information, use of unverified intel from former British spy/Russians in a dossier to get a FISA to spy on Americans, lies told to Congress, handing Syria’s Chem weapons issue to Russia, not holding Hillary Clinton accountable, an FBI/CIA politicized.
Let’s lift our nation up - not tear it down from the inside out. Let’s start this New Year by supporting one another. I will keep investigating and hopefully there will be a resolution in the end - @realDonaldTrump declassify the docs (Transparency is key)

1. Hummus!

Well, this is basically our national food after all!
2. This is what they call 'starters' here in Israel.

A #NewYearsEve #thread

On 🇪🇺 & 🇬🇧 & 🇳🇴 & 🦄🦄🦄

May 2019 bring much 🎂 to have & eat!

Due thanks @SebDance for inspiration
Some clever 🇬🇧 spin doctors have added a ➕ to 🇳🇴

assumedly to make it more alluring?

@USverdrup, Director at Norwegian Institute of International Affairs @NUPInytt noted to the 🇳🇴 @Aftenposten daily:
“If you stand at the edge
you no longer seek the best solution”
Please consider this:

Did any Central & Eastern European country joining 🇪🇺 2004
1st knock @EFTAsecretariat's door
as their preferred ‘solution’ for #SingleMarket access?

#EFTA & the #EEA Agreement it administers
= a barren 🏜️ for #democracy

A truly grey Brussels #bureaucracy.

I just hit 40K! Welcome followers, old & new. Over the next few days, I’ll be tweeting 40 FAVOURITE HISTORY OBJECTS, starting with #40: a medieval skull fused with chainmail. The soldier died at the Battle of Visby in 1361 in Gotland, Sweden. He was buried in his armour.
#39 in my 40 FAVOURITE HISTORY OBJECTS: the Beauchêne skull, or exploded skull. It’s a type of anatomical preparation invented by the French anatomist Claude Beauchêne in the 19th century. This stunning example was created by Ryan Matthew Cohn.
#38 of my 40 FAVOURITE HISTORY OBJECTS: the world's oldest complete example of a human with metastatic cancer. Researchers from Durham University & the British Museum discovered evidence of tumors in this 3,000-year-old skeleton found in the Sudan in 2013:…
