Yes, we are still in the middle of a global pandemic, #COVID19, but let’s not forget about the #opioid epidemic, a public health issue we have been dealing with a while... What can we do about it?? #ph260720 #opioidepidemic Image
In 2017 (more than 4 years ago), @HHSGov declared the #opioidepidemic as a public health emergency. An “emergency” situation that we have not been able to control yet... #publichealthemergency #ph260720…
According to @CDCgov and @NIDAnews, more than 70,000 Americans die every year due to opioid overdose. That is 70,000 lives (read in bold!) lost every year, the majority of which is preventable. #opioidepidemic #opioidskill #opioidoverdose #ph260720 Image

According to the @CDCgov, there was a 30% increase in overdose deaths in 2020. #OverdoseDeaths #CDC #NIH #PublicHealthData #ph260720
@CDC's 2019 data show that 70%+ of all fatal drug overdoses (a total of 71,000 that year) involved an opioid #Opioids #OverdoseDeaths #ph260720 Image Source:
This means that each day in the United States, there were over 130 #OpioidOverdoseDeaths and over 5 each hour. #ph260720

Psuedo “expert” Dr Jha of #RhodeIsland ‘s own Brown U expounds on masking. Whoops. But objective truth and data don’t matter in the post modern field of “Public Health”.
Yet the good “Dr” can charge big bucks to advise “business leaders” and “policy makers” on pandemic strategies. Perhaps he should see a therapist first? First “Tool”: Hide under your damn bed!

Remember that #RhodeIsland BOE meeting where the Council on Elem & Sec Ed directed @AInfanteGreen and @RIDeptEd to reject any school reopening plan that did not include a mask mandate? Here is the infamous letter generating the OMA violating letter. A 🧵.
2/ Notice this letter is to the GOV, and lists not one, but TWO teacher unions as signatories. Guess what else? Two of the signatories are actually on the the BOE: Colleen Callahan (RITFHP) and Larry Purtill (NEARI). That's not all...
3/ So, we have two members of BOE in their role of teacher union execs attempting to influence masking policy on the same BOE they serve on. Disgusting. Appalling. #corruption #RhodeIsland #UNMASKOURCHILDREN

Clear that @NEAToday RI Chapter seeks to circumvent...

The Concord project opted to go with Solar (PV) connected to an energy storage system (battery storage) in lieu of a backup generator.

This system has been designed to keep the critical loads for the home operational even if the utility power is knocked out.
This includes the backup heating and domestic hot water system (gas boiler with radiant floor heat + indirect hot water tank), the refrigerator, freezer, microwave, TV/WiFi, lighting and receptacles in strategic areas.
The Generac PwrCell provides 18 kWh of battery storage in a single cabinet, and up to 9 kW of continuous power output, enough to power the critical loads for extended periods of time. It can also be expanded to 36 kWh of battery storage in the future should it ever be needed.

@AInfanteGreen I found your written position on @repmorgan bill H6070, which would have prevented you from bringing #CriticalRaceTheory to all #RhodeIsland schools. Nice try attempting to bury it, though.

Tell us again how RIDE "doesn't have a #CRT policy."

2/ Here is a link to @RIDeptEd official position on #CriticalRaceTheory in #RhodeIsland - straight from the RI Legislature website. Hint: They sure were against banning #CRT, but that's not all the gems I found...…
3/ Here is a letter from the Rhode Island Superintendents Association supporting #CRT in #RhodeIsland schools. Guess which Superintendent sat on the LEAP Task force?

1/ #exposing more connections between #criticalracetheory and the @RIDeptEd LEAP task force member Jeremy Chiapetta from BVP. Remember this page from the LEAP report? In researching a parent concern about BVP's summer reading list, I found...
2/ I found startlingly similar language on the Teach for America (TFA) website and the #RhodeIsland LEAP report. That wasn't all. The TFA website is littered with #CriticalRaceTheory tenets, filled with praise for their own work on racial equity initiatives, and more...
3/ There are 3 members of the #RhodeIsland LEAP Task force with deep connections to Teach for America and their #CriticalRaceTheory agenda. That's not all that Jeremy Chiapetta, BVP, and Teach for America have in common....

1/OK #RhodeIsland, let me introduce some background on one of the members chosen for the LEAP Task Force, Juanita Montes de Oca. Remember this task force appears devoted to bringing #CriticalRaceTheory to all RI schools, by hook or by crook. Guess what Generation Citizen... Image
2/ stands for? Culture change and System Change, to the tune of educating our students about their oppression and privilege. As @repmorgan can attest, this is how we wind up with students being bribed with test credit to become social justice warriors. But wait! There's more! Image
3/ Remember that story from a few weeks ago from the Daily Wire? The one that had all the teachers who signed a pledge to break the law if necessary, in order to continue on with their CRT self? Guess whose name is on it?… Image

2/First up: Listen to @AInfanteGreen's interview with @IanDon -- Fast forward in the link to about 11:40 and you will hear her LIE on 7/9/2021:
"...I know that here in RI we do not have a CRT policy, that's not what is being taught in the schools...."…
3/EXCEPT: We DO have a CRT policy here in RI, and not only that, it's being supported by @GovDanMcKee, by RIDE, and also by @SANDRISCANO (Chair - Senate Education Committee) and Joseph McNamara @RIDemChair - (Chair -- House of Rep Education Committee.) SITTING LEGISLATORS.

This has to be one of most effective analytic takedowns of another side's argument.

Jeh Johnson wrote a deeply flawed piece opposing @SenGillibrand @SenJoniErnst's legislation on #SexualAssault in military.

This by @rachelv12 is a master class.👇…
2. One example

Johnson rhetorically claims: "A military commander must have legal authority over those in a unit...The two must be inseparable."

VanLandingham with the facts: "Demonstrably false given the thousands of U.S. military commanders" without any such legal authority.
3. "Mr. Johnson...warns that Congress shouldn’t fix what isn’t broken, and should leave everything but sexual assault crimes alone.

Fact: Court-martialing Black service members at a rate twice that of their white counterparts is a broken system in need of repair. Period."

During his speech to @USCGAcademy today, @POTUS will discuss "challenges and threats our country faces" and the role of maritime security in protecting the US around the world, @KJP46 tells reporters on Air Force One.
Again this morning, there was a @POTUS-@netanyahu call and he told the Israeli leader that "he expected a significant de-escalation today on a path to a ceasefire," @KJP46 tells reporters on Air Force One. "Our focus has not changed."
US will continue "intense, quiet diplomatic conversations" about the Middle East, adds @KJP46.

Shout out to @femaregion1, @RIHEALTH, and others for an amazing experience with COVID vaccination in Providence today, a great illustration that public health is as much a social science as about medicine and biology. A short thread explaining why: ↵
I was accompanying a person who is very, VERY scared of needles. They wanted to get vaccinated, but were also really afraid of doing it. We went to The Dunc [@DunkinDonutsCtr]. Very smooth, quick, efficient. We get to the point where we get assigned a vaccination booth. ↵
The lady senses that this person is really nervous. They can't see the face (mask), but the voice gives it away. They ask, "Are you really nervous about this?" They say yes. I'm expecting the usual, "Oh, don't worry, it's nothing", etc. But no: ↵

Any policy enforcer imposes statutes & codes, phyiscally assult/murder a fellow countryman is Treason and Sedition.

Policy enforcers violate their own Federal Statutes 24/7.

Look up these statutes 👇
United States Code, Title 18 § 241 Conspiracy against rights.
United States Code, Title 18 §242 Deprivation of rights under color of law.

Policy enforcers for example when they pull you over & and issue you a fine violate the 4th Amendment & the 5th Amendment-due process.
According to a Supreme Court ruling police have no constitutional duty to protect us.

It is our natural right to defend ourselves against ANYONE!

🗳️🇺🇸 #Kentucky

⛔️ Les électeurs refusent d'allonger la durée du mandat des juges de l’État, contre l'avis des élus Républicains ET Démocrates à la Législature

Les électeurs (qui viennent de voter pour #Trump) acceptent la hausse du salaire minimum de 8,56$ aujourd'hui à 15$ en 2026

Ce sera le plus haut salaire minimum des États-Unis

Il faudra attendre un peu car 60% de OUI sont nécessaires pour valider la mesure. Image

So, this is a small story about #RhodeIsland politics, and my position about voting out the GOP down to the grass roots - and how local actions have consequences for national parties. /1
A few years back, some folks on here thought I was pretty hard-assed for voting against a local GOP candidate for RI House. She should have been my ideal pick: A PhD in poli sci (I knew her work back in the day. It was good stuff.) Pro-choice, pro-business. /2
But she was a Trump delegate to the GOP convention - even though she said she wrote in Carly Fiorina. (Whatever.) I told her directly that I believed in starving the GOP for support until it cleaned house on Trumpism. A year later, she runs for GOP state chair. /3

🔴🔴🔴Lorsque @BegonThomas commettait son erreur concernant Idéale, une Charolaise devenue Limousine dans son tweet, @farmers3b a lancé une série fabuleuse #ThomasCeciEstUne 👉🏻 pour nous offrir un tableau de races bovines incroyable.

@emma_ducros je vous remercie pour votre anecdote ! @jegat5 m’a proposé alors le lancement d’une série sur les poules. J’attendais une occasion de le faire : le « kairos » s’est présenté. La poule-mouette n’aura qu’à bien se tenir.
Pour m’accompagner dans cette démarche, je vais utiliser entre autres un livre offert par le @ServiceInfoCNPO au #SIA 2020, qui propose une diversité de races de poules. Aussi, chaque jour (je ne sais pas si je serai aussi assidue que @farmers3b !) vous aurez une présentation 🐓 Image

NEW! Election Frontline Weekly:

You truly haven’t lived until you’re on the business-end of a tut-tutting from @PolitiFact over the meaning of the words “missing” and “unknown".

NEW! Election Frontline Weekly:

“In the old days, before foundation-funded outlets like @PolitiFact [appeared], Americans would agree that there is a problem when 28,000,000 ballots are mailed out, never come back, are missing, whereabouts unknown." Image
