#Bee Twitter - I put up a thread last Sunday about queen #bumblebees this time of year and how to help - thanks to you it got 800k+ impressions meaning tens of thousands of people are better ‘bee informed’.
Can we do it again?
PLEASE RETWEET this new thread to help save more 1/9
#queens. Bumblebees don’t understand glass - they get confused and trapped and exhausted. Likewise with polytunnel plastic. So if you see or hear a #bumblebee buzzing & banging against your window she’s not trying to get into your house to hang with you - she’s confused. 2/9
If she’s already inside your house and is buzzing at the window she’s trapped. So you need to get her out &
as quickly as you can - don’t leave her suffer while you do something else. Why?
#Bumblebees with a full stomach have about 40 minutes of ‘energy’ in them before they 3/9

Where were you @RepJeffries? Have not heard your voice in support of human rights and justice for #Palestinians. Your constituents in #Brooklyn and #Queens - including me - would like you to speak out.
Congresswoman @RashidaTlaib and @CoriBush have a clear moral compass and callin the ugly reality in Israel Palestine what it is - apartheid - and so not a democracy.

Why are you silent Hakeem @RepJeffries?

Today, the House will vote on my resolution (#HRes908) that condemns anti-Asian sentiment related to #COVID19. @realDonaldTrump's use of China Virus & Kung Flu 2 describe the virus have scapegoated #AAPIs as carriers of the new coronavirus. This is wrong & dangerous.

A thread 1/
Last month, @A3PCON released its national report that shows the severity of wrongfully describing #COVID19 as "China Virus", "Kung Flu", or "Wuhan Virus".

From March to May, there were 2,583 reports of anti-Asian incidents.

It is likely there are many unreported acts too. 2/
The majority of hate incidents in the national report were verbal harassment at 70.6%, followed by shunning at 21.8%, and physical assault at 8.7%.

These statistics came from 47 states with the highest number of cases in California (46%), NY (14%), and WA (4%).

Horrifying for #BlackLivesMatters protesters in Whitestone, #Queens. Man tried to run them over on Tuesday, it’s caught on video. 54-yr-old Frank Cavalluzzi arrested. He had blades on his arm. Charged with Reckless Endangerment, Menacing, Weapon Possession. Video from @siburpunk
Thread & Update: @QueensDAKatz says defendant is now charged with attempted murder, attempted assault, menacing and other crimes. District Attorney Katz said, “In a burst of anger and rage, this defendant allegedly sought to kill protesters who were peacefully assembled ...
... and exercising their right to free speech. No one at any time should infringe upon another’s Constitutionally-protected freedoms and doing so with the intent to injure and maim is criminal.”

(Thread) While this chart is frightening, reality is even more dire. The contagion rate in New York City is actually around 3 per thousand (vs New York State's 2 per thousand). This places NYC just behind Italy's hard-hit Lombardy Region in per capita cases.@narativlive #Covid19
2. The fatality rate in New York City is also rising. The current rate is about 1.7%, a far cry from Lombardy's 10%, but as hospitals strain from overcrowding and frontline workers battle infections, the number of deaths will increase. That's why #Covid19 is such a killer.
3. The growth in the contagion rate will likely max out at around 50% according to Mayor De Bblasio. At Lombardy's fatality rate of 10% were talking about 45,000 deaths in #NYC. This could be where we're heading absent a lockdown.#CoronavirusOutbreak

1. What is the last time a perceived leftist liberation army won? Did the #IRA win? If they did it was done gracefully. What separated them from other groups to buy a deal? IMO because they showed they'd kill the Royals. When they killed Dianna's uncle Lord Louis Mountbatten
2. it all changed. Things got more violent but peace in the end.

In 1978 I lived in #Sunnyside #Queens. @AOC District. There was a small magazine shop at the corner on Greenpoint. It had IRA publications in the window & they were openly collecting money for "the cause."
3. Twenty years after Mountabatten's killing the Good Friday agreement was the culmination of hard work of many including the Mitchell team to bring peace. Bitterness may remain but Ireland had moved on. Until #Brexit. @BorisJohnson @foreignoffice @GCHQ

Major incident at the #ConEd plant right by my house just now. Sky is lit up like the 4th of July. #Astoria #Queens #NYC
Everyone is safe and sound over here. We have all gotten a kick out of reading thru the mentions. Thanks for the entertaining night, Twitterverse.
I'm sure we can all chalk this up to @Noahsyndergaard coming back to
#Queens using the Bifrost. #Marvel #Thor #Mets #ConEd #Astoria
