If you’re a wanted felon on parole who beats up your girlfriend, gets in a high speed chase with police and then tries to have a stand-off (with a deadly weapon) you deserve to be shot. Rather him than a LEO, sorry not sorry #BlueLivesMatter
People bitching about “use of force” why don’t you get out there and walk towards the guy with a daisy🙄
He looks like a sweetheart. #RIP

hey man, we all grieve in our own way OKAY…
Bandit and I had a pact that whoever was the last survivor would take the other's remains to San Francisco and lay them to rest in McDonald's dumpster
Some of my happiest memories were spent scrounging for McNuggets in a dumpster with Bandit. Catch you at the Rainbow Bridge, my friend #RIP

Um, research: French researchers reported that 52% of young women exposed to Francis Cabrel’s ballad “ Je l’aime à mourir ” gave their phone numbers to an average-looking young man who hit on them, whereas only 28% of those exposed to Vincent Delerm’s “ L’heure du thé ” did so.
One way to kill off the waning hours of New Years Day is to listen to amusant French singer-songwriters.

I don't necessarily recommend it. I just acknowledge it as an option should you have @YouTube at your house.

I followed up on this case the moment the news broke. It saddened me that we lost two souls needlessly to a queer and almost unexplainable situation. While on the surface we can place judgements based on the anecdotal narratives being proliferated, the issues are deeper.
The officers involved are men of Service at both ends. One is a dedicated father and officer of LASTMA and likewise the other. The one we would like to name a villain especially because of the obvious, he is attached to the indicted SARS and he fired the shot... sane climes, a proper digging ought to be done into the culprit/suspect here. This is not because we can bring back the dead but because we need closure across board and must ensure that this never happens again. Here are my concerns on a personal note for findings...

#RIP #STANLEE. What a great president you would have made. I am sure you would never lock up thousands of children, taking them from their families, or tear gas them, or shoot them with rubber bullets. I am sure you would never authorize lethal force against children, sleep well

Terrible news. Creator of one of the most delightful, appeal-to-all-ages series ever made.
my kids grew up on SpongeBob. They loved it and I loved watching it with them. Thank you Stephen Hillenberg for bringing my family hours of laughs together. #RIP
For my money, the all-time best SpongeBob episode is "Band Geeks." The only time a cartoon caused me to jump out of my seat and do a fist pump in the air.

La Nouvelle-Orléans après l'ouragan Katrina, ou comment profiter d'une catastrophe climatique pour virer les pauvres, raser les cités HLM, privatiser les écoles et saccager l'âme d'une ville. Reportage de mézigue dans le @mdiplo de décembre.…
J'aimerais dire un mot sur un des personnages de ce reportage. Un reportage, c'est souvent un crève-cœur, car d'une rencontre qui va peut-être marquer votre vie vous n'allez, faute de place, garder que deux ou trois phrases. Parfois il n'en reste rien.
Je ressens d'autant plus l'injustice que c'est moi qui l'inflige. C'est le cas notamment avec Benny Pete, du @Hot8BrassBand. Son groupe, je le vénère depuis des années, à l'idée d'interviewer son fondateur et joueur de tuba, une légende à NOLA,

Lt. Lirfa Dashe was to wed last month. He'd bn in MNJTF since 2015. In March 2018, he was given off. 2 months later, in May, he was ordered back to frontlines. In July, he was killed in Jilli. He's 1 of 1,307 #Nigerian soldiers, victims of #BokoHaram buried in Maimalari Barracks
Lt. Lirfa Dashe was with the 22 Task Force Bgde of the 81 Div in Lagos. All that his family received was "a token 1-time payment from the 22nd Brigade equivalent to $140 & a #Nigerian flag." As the world mark(s) their Rememberance(s), let's not forget ppl like Lt. Dashe. #RIP
In the Great Wars of the colonial era, black soldiers were very expendable, their sacrifices air brushed from history & forgetable. It's not much changed - In #Nigeria's fights with insurgency, soldiers on the frontlines are still treated as expendable…

Je suis donc actuellement à Beyrouth pour donner quelques cours, j’en ai profité pour fouiller dans nos archives familiales. Il y a quelque chose qui risque de vous surprendre et que je trouve émouvant. 👇
Dans les carnets de vol de Pierre Mendès France, il y a la trace de son passage à Beyrouth en novembre 39. Il s’entrainera dans la région pour les forces aériennes francaises au Levant pendant de long mois.
Pierre avait l’habitude de chanter des berceuses le soir à ses deux petits (mon oncle Bernard et mon père Michel #rip agés de 3 et 5 ans à l’époque). Ce qu’il ne pouvait plus faire depuis son départ.

Just read @SHendry775's #autobiography, #MeAndTheTable, very different from the first one "Remember My Name" by John Docherty almost 30 years ago. If you're a #snooker fan/nut like me, then it's a must read. Got through it in record time too! My first sporting hero.
This man was the reason why I found myself down the club constantly in my mid to late teens, why I went to watch him at Woodlesford #Snooker Center before he was number 1 and World Champ. He missed a century and rolled/bounced his warped £40 cue across the table in frustration 😃
I'm so grateful that I got to see him at the #Crucible on the last day of the world final where he beat @jimmywhite147 with a session to spare. It was great to see them both come out in the evening with #PeterEbdon, the late Len Ganley and one or 2 other pros. #snooker

Google+, you burst on to the #socialmedia scene like a comet. A rubbish comet in a fermement of amazing comets but a comet nonetheless. As others said you were wonderful & important, selling their services on the back of you, I said you were rubbish. I take my share of the blame.
As you became a wasteground, we continued to see the charlatans say you were a vital part of the #socialmedia spend. You weren't. #Search was always more important - along with the other social networks. #Google does so many things so amazingly well but this was never one of them
But it seems to be that you lived your life like a candle in the wind,
slowly going nowhere while the Twitter gleamed
And I would have liked to know you
But you were just too bad
Your candle burned out long before
The budget ever did.

Please allow me a brief moment to put this Kavanagh issue into proper focus. A thead.
If you follow current events, even just casually, you probably noticed the Kavanagh nomination has been unprecedentedly pushed back on and obstructed in any and every possible way.
Just a brief recap:…

.#AugustaGA "euthanized" an alligator in Lake Olmstead… Many people were bothered by this story, including myself. Only after watching a @pbs @PBSNature episode on people & lions in #Gujarat #India was I able to articulate why this seemingly trivial
event actually points to the larger issue of whether we humans are going to adapt to this planet or whether we are going to continue to act as if our choices have no consequences until this planet changes & boots us out. #IndiasWanderingLions… Rather than
change our behavior which resulted in an alligator inhabiting this lake or take measures to limit the risk it would cause harm, we humans killed it to eliminate the minor risk it posed. We again positioned ourselves *outside* of the biosphere, even though our lives would be

To all who expressed their admiration and love for @SenJohnMcCain during this incredible week, thank you.
@SenJohnMcCain This week was an amazing tribute to one of the greatest champions America and Freedom have ever known.

All those paying tribute did a magnificent job explaining the multifaceted life and story of @SenJohnMcCain.
@SenJohnMcCain The memorial service yesterday was an amazing tribute to one of the greatest statesman of our time — or any time — in American history.

The ceremony in Annapolis was a worthy, fitting tribute to one of the most distinguished graduates in the history of the U.S. Naval Academy.

What an icon. Aretha Franklin “Queen of Soul” moved us in every sense of the word. She brought Americans together, lifted our spirits and voices and feet. We’re better for her extraordinary gifts. #RESPECT #RIP
#ArethaFranklin—“Musical Genius, Truth Teller, Freedom Fighter.” Great tribute from @FJasmineG… h/t @Sifill_LDF @johnlegend
"Aretha helped define the American experience. In her voice, we could feel our history, all of it and in every shade—our power and our pain, our darkness and our light, our quest for redemption and our hard-won respect."—@BarackObama & @MichelleObama on #ArethaFranklin's passing.
