1/ We already know that nature is relentless. But it is also true that #technology can help to alleviate the most serious consequences of its onslaught
2/ That's why we don't quite agree when this @dwnews article argues that early warning systems are not valid for some phenomena such as #flashfloods…
3/ Satellite observations such as those of @CopernicusEMS provide invaluable information, but at Arantec we believe that #earlywarningsystems gain in efficiency when the most problematic rivers are also monitored in real time

Let's return to Jim Rauch's key 1993 Journal of Urban Economics paper that started all of the action in urban economics. His paper must have been motivated by Lucas and Romer's work on human capital spillovers.…
Some notation , person i in city j at time t. The researcher observes her wage, a vector of her demographics X and her city's average education level. Using OLS, estimate B2 ;

Wage_ijt = B1*X_it + B2*Education_jt + U_ijt

B2>0 ==> human capital beneficial local spillover
In the early 1990s as the credibility revolution (Angrist, Card, Katz, Krueger, Imbens) unfolded in applied micro, reasonable concerns could be made that the average human capital in a city is not an exogenous variable in a Mincer regression.

The directive to freeze UKR aid came in June.

6/5/19: Zelenskiy spoke with Kushner & Rick Perry at a dinner in Brussels.

Trump used Pence to tell Zelensky that U.S. aid was still being withheld while demanding more aggressive ‘action on corruption’

Rick Perry says he'll cooperate with Congress on Ukraine questions

The Ukrainians likely understood Pence’s ‘action on corruption’ code to include the inv’n of the Bidens.

Trump's erratic foreign policy is diminishing the US's standing on the world stage.

Pence’s NatSec advisor was on the 7/25 call & the VP should have had access to the transcript w/in hours

Trump’s use of Pence is part of a broader pattern of using both exec authority & high-ranking officials in his adm to advance his personal/political interests

House attys say they have “grounds to believe” Mueller’s GJ info shows Trump lied under oath about his knowledge of his campaign’s contacts w/ WikiLeaks.

“While driving to La Guardia ...Candidate Trump told Gates more releases of damaging info will be coming.”

The House argued that Mueller’s GJ materials can be useful for House Intel’s ongoing Ukraine inv’n — specifically, Trump pushing for prosecution of Ukrainians who testified against Manafort.

Trump insisted that the U.S. had nothing to do with the apparent launch pad explosion of an Iranian rocket.

Trump's denial also included what looked to be an aerial photograph of the launch site, which experts say was likely never meant for public view.

After significant #rainfall across #Northumberland, I have visited villages with high river levels in #Tynedale, and spoken with local Cllr's + @EnvAgency. Thankfully no threat to properties on this part of the #Tyne. Will be visiting the #RiverRede tomorrow.
The #Tyne is high -see #Hexham today - but a v long way off #StormDesmond levels, +flood defences doing a good job. #Kielder reservoir acting as a buffer, as no water down the spillway, thereby reducing by over 10% levels downriver. But pls be #FloodAware by the waters edge 2/
Lots of standing water on roads whether in Warden, Hexham, Corbridge or country lanes - please report these -
+ be v v careful when driving, walking on riverside footpaths + on no account tackle a ford 3/ Image

🍿Lordy, there are tapes🍿

Flynn told Mueller people tied to Trump and Congress tried to obstruct probe

Flynn even provided a VM recording

A fed judge ordered transcripts re: Flynn's convos w/ RU officials by 5/31.

Felix Sater gave feds 5 OBL telephone numbers, b/4 9/11.

Sater said in written remarks to lawmakers that he “provided crucial intelligence information” about Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida “before and after the 9/11 attacks.”

Trump boasted he “pointed” out OBL before the 2001 World Trade Center attacks in one of his books

Most of Sater’s cooperation with the gov’t still remains officially secret.

Barr: “Madam Speaker, did you bring your handcuffs?”

Pelosi smiled and indicating that “the House Sergeant at Arms was present at the ceremony should an arrest be necessary.”

Trump was elected w/ RU’s help & they lied abt contacts incessantly, why?

Barr & Mueller are forbidden to talk abt prosecutions filed under seal at various jurisdictions & abt active GJ matters & active inv’s.

Unsealed indictments will reveal Mueller’s Report.

Per RR: you can’t speak disparagingly about a person if they have not been charged with a crime (re: Comey re HRC)

Initially I had a meltdown about this as I realized then Mueller couldn’t speak of any criminal acts unless indictments were unsealed concurrently.

📌Chatter est’d 2 week delay is consistent w/ the likelihood indictments cannot be unsealed until Congress has rec’d the MR

📌Barr: the WH will get the MR before the public, in case it wants to make redactions.

📌Trump‘s legal team cannot redact indictments.🤗
