#TetZooCon 2019: a thread. We've over the half-way mark as goes filling up the venue, and it's only early September. TetZooCon is being held at University of London's THE VENUE, Malet St, #London, Oct 19th & 20th. Around 18 talks, an art exhibition, 3 discussions, stalls, merch..
Book places here (we don't send paper tickets)... this is also where you book for the conference meal and the (separate) #palaeoart workshop (which currently runs in parallel to part of the main event, alas):
#TetZooCon 2019 includes a special session on natural history film-making, with a talk from Amber Eames (on her #swans film) and an on-stage discussion and Q&A with Paul Stewart, Nick Lyon and Zoe Cousins...

1/ Congratulations to the #Raptors and to #Canada on winning their first NBA title. They played a great series - #kawhileonard was a great leader but 4 players with 20 points in an elimination game is huge. #NBAFinals
2/ The #Warriors showed a lot of heart and hustle in staying in this game despite injuries and had the ball in Curry's hands with a chance to win, but didn't get it done. #NBAFinals
3/ Yes, the #Warriors were banged up in an epic way, but that doesn't take away from what the #Raptors accomplished. Remember when the 1987 #Lakers beat a banged up #Celtics team? As a #Celtics fan, I was still in awe of how talented the Lakers were.

Alright, I've seen too many dumb blue check marks throwing the Spurs under the bus for KD's injury even though we're not in the playoffs. I've decided to roughly chronicle what I remember about last season and how Kawhi is not innocent in all this.

#Spurs #Raptors #Kawhi
1. Spurs gave Kawhi the keys to his injury in August 2017. They had diagnosed him with Quadriceps Tendinopathy (a degenerative disease that can be treated but never healed). Kawhi and his camp sought out multiple opinions and settled on Philly's doctor (who misdiagnosed Fultz)...
The diagnosis was atrophy instead of Tendinopathy. That can be healed with the right treatment....

Com os #Raptors prestes a chegar ao cenário global, vou compartilhar uma história sobre o que torna Toronto e o Canadá tão especiais.É sobre um cara que você vai ver muito do lado da quadra.

[Dica: É sobre racismo, esportes e por que você vai acabar torcendo por nós 🇨🇦 ]
Quando você pensa nos Raps, provavelmente pensa em Drake nos bastidores, como o maior fã da equipe.

O problema é que ele não é.

Em Toronto, nós amamos @Drake. Mas há outra pessoa que simboliza tudo de bom em Toronto e no Canadá.
Este é o Nav Bhatia. Você vai ver muito dele agitando sua toalha na TV.

Ele tem 67 anos e continua mais alto do que o seu sobrinho adolescente. Se você já esteve em um jogo de Raps, não pode sentir falta dele.

Mas aqui está o que a maioria das pessoas não sabe:

With the #Raptors about to hit the global stage, I’m going to share a story about what makes Toronto, and Canada, so special. It’s about a guy you’re going to be seeing a whole lot of.

A Thread.

[Hint: It's about racism, sports, and why you'll end up cheering for 🍁]
When you think of the Raps, you probably think of Drake on the sidelines, as the team’s biggest fan.

The thing is, he’s not.

In Toronto, we love @Drake. But there’s someone else who symbolizes everything great about Toronto and Canada.
This is Nav Bhatia. You're going to see a lot of him waving his towel on TV.

He's 67 years old and still cheers louder than your teenage nephew. If you've ever been to a Raps game, you can't miss him.

But here’s what most people don’t know:

Stoked to announce @ZooKeys_Journal published our @BatumiRaptors data paper! It explains how our #citizenscience project monitors the autumn #migration of >1.000.000 #raptors in the Eastern Black Sea Flyway, and how to use our #openaccess data @GBIF/@NLBIF! - 1/n

Many #raptors migrate primarily by thermal #soaring. To do so they travel by day and avoid high mtns and open sea. This leads to spectacular raptor aggregations in overland #flyways. One of the world´s largest raptor flyways occurs along the eastern Black Sea coast in SW Georgia.
The Eastern Black Sea Flyway has its narrowest point just north of #Batumi, where the coast and Lesser Caucasus form a clear "bottleneck". The mtns are not extremely high but present a significant barrier for #raptors on #migration due to low and dense cloud cover. @BatumiRaptors
