From a psychology/criminology standpoint, Trump’s guilt is self evident in his endless quest to subvert and obstruct the Mueller probe. It doesn’t get said enough that if he was innocent of the collusion charge he wouldn’t be going to such blatantly desperate lengths. #protip
Seriously, aside from playing golf and being racist, obstructing the Russia probe is all Trump’s done in the WH for almost 2 yrs straight. Just think of how many ppl he’s fired or appointed in hopes of fulfilling his widely known desire to end it altogether. Obsession/compulsion.
He isn’t capable of controlling himself or appearing cool under pressure and he’s such a sociopath that he can’t help but abuse all the power he has for as long as he can. He gives no fucks about how guilty he looks because in his mind the ends will justify his high risk means.
I can understand the reasons Mueller’s not releasing the results of his investigation before 11/6, but if indeed he’s uncovered proof of Trump/the GOP’s treasonous illegitimacy, exactly how is it “safer” to let them keep stoking domestic terrorism ahead of *another* election? 🤷🏾♀️
We’re literally talking about attempted assassinations of former heads of state, incited by the premeditated/sustained fascist rhetoric of a party and fake POTUS who colluded to steal a whole fucking election in 2016 and you’re holding the report back so as “not to be political?”
GTFOH we’re way past the fucking point of not being political.
What is key to dialogue? 1. Pay attention to how people speak.
Exercise: record a family conversation and transcribe what people say. Different generations, ages, backgrounds. Start to see how people talk. eg Gilmore Girls, Joss Whedon, Quentin Tarantino
.@mauricebroaddus#WXR18 2. Good dialogue only evokes how people really talk. You don’t want to write how people really talk (um, uh, cussing). Straddle the line between how people really talk and how we wish they’d talk.
We can always debate the significance of the data or various connections we find in our research. Many don't lead anywhere or really mean anything.
However, when someone calls a provable connection or link a "deranged claim", we ask why. Nobody said you had to like it.
Receipts, since ppl have asked:
City Manager Lawrence Kendzior said "the purpose of the master development agreement is to define the terms and conditions of the transfer of 11 Crown St. from the city to The Michaels Organization for future development." archive.is/blzbr

#ProTip: the term “TERF” isn’t a trans word, it’s a feminist term created by cis feminists in 2008 to stop the colonization of radical feminism by people obsessed with the eradication of transness who called themselves radical feminists.
The pioneering radical feminist collective, the Lesbian Tide was run by a trans-identified Lesbian.
TERFs harassed the radfem groups Sisters & Cell 16 into closing because they were staunchly trans-inclusive.
The radical feminist collective Olivia paid for trans care and physically stopped TERFs from murdering Oliva member Sandy Stone because she was trans.
This won’t be the first time Trump and Putin have met 1 on 1 in private either, they did the same exact thing last summer. How many more treasonous rendezvouses do they need to have before folk understand that they go together?
Thread: “How to WriteUp Your PhD and not get Overwhelmed” I’m spending a week with one of my (co-supervised) PhD students here in India. We are discussing general principles for getting it all done, so I will share some thoughts, in case it helps others at this stage #phdchat
First #protip : Start thinking in Paragraphs. All you will do next, really, is write a few paragraphs, that’s not too bad, is it? Live and breathe your science thoughts as paragraphs, or tidy bundles of thoughts that go well together
Don’t forget that a paragraph is really only 5-6 sentences. All these sentences should support and develop your topic sentence.
If your great-grandmother was Mary Murphy, nee McCabe, the "spinster" Mary Murphy arriving on a ship is not likely her, even if the age and place of birth match.
You're looking for a single Mary McCabe, or a married Mary Murphy.
Also, if Mary Murphy began having her children in Ireland in the 1850s, the single Mary Murphy who arrived in the US in 1860 is *definitely* not her. (Although I'm currently looking at multiple trees on ancestry that have all imported this same mistake for one family.)
Just saw this mistake:
If great-grandma was born in Europe in 1881, and you have her American marriage certificate from 1907 attached, that isn't her arriving single under her maiden name in 1908. Because, well, she was already here.
Le terminal des croisières de Marseille se situe sur le môle Léon Gourret — un gros machin en bêton de près d’un kilomètre et demi de long planqué tout au nord du port (l’autonome, pas le vieux). #Thread
C’est ici :
Les trucs intéressants à visiter les plus proches, ça commence grosso-modo au niveau des docks de Marseille.
They could just as easily have called them diversity deserts, because the issue above all else is these White rural communities don’t just lack accurate news, they lack *people of color*. They’re racist, sexist and ignorant in general due to segregation, not just fake news.
Les lacs présentent cette particularité (par rapport aux rivières par exemple) d'être des milieux avec peu de courants qui favorisent la sédimentation des particules. Parmi ces particules, des dépôts allochtones (externe au lac) et des dépôts autochtones (en provenance du lac).
D’ailleurs vous avez une idée de combien se dépose de sédiment dans un lac tel que le Léman ?
Je vous donne la réponse en début d'aprem !
Et pour le lac d'Annecy, qui est 80 fois plus petit en volume, est-ce que la quantité de matière détritique sera selon :
He wasn’t too “challenged” to figure out how to obtain the materials and construct multiple pipe bombs, then strategically mail them and avoid detection long enough to kill 3 people. Y’all need to stop willing innocence to these White dudes, all it does is give them permission.
Le 4 janvier 1980, Ronald Pelton, un ancien analyste fraîchement démissionné de la NSA qui a, par ailleurs, quelques grosses dettes de jeu prend contact avec l’ambassade soviétique de Washington.
Il a des trucs à leur révéler… mais discrètement. #Thread
Pour le KGB, évidemment, ça sent immédiatement la poule aux œufs d’or : ils organisent discrètement un rendez-vous avec Pelton et confient son débriefing à Vitaly Yurchenko, un de leurs officiers les plus gradés aux États-Unis.
Et ils ne vont pas le regretter.
L’histoire que Pelton raconte à Yurchenko, sans aucun document, entièrement de mémoire (le type a une mémoire quasi photographique), est une véritable bombe.
Over the past few months, several scam accounts have popped up that call themselves #resistance. Some ask for #donations to help impeach Trump. Some sell shirts, phone cases, etc. And there are others that ask for money for various causes. THREAD 1 #scam#donate#con#PSA
Je commence donc le thread sur la campagne de candidature dans l'#ESR telle que je l'ai vécue. Je vais essayer de donner les quelques conseils que j'en ai tiré, mais chaque situation est particulière donc ce sera à prendre avec des pincettes !
Chronologiquement, tout commence avec le montage de son dossier de qualification.
Pour celleux qui ne sauraient pas (ça n'a rein d'évident), il y a une instance nationale, le CNU (conseil nationale des universités), qui est elle même divisée en sections disciplinaires, >>
>> et chaque section est composée de chercheu·r/se·s (j'abrégerai C si besoin) et enseignant·e·s-chercheu·r/se·s (EC), en partie nommé·e·s et en parti élu·e·s.
