#COVID19 e una semplice osservazione che non vuole avere pretesa di correlazione:

- New York (stato con T simili alle nostre): 202.000 casi / 10.000 decessi
- California: 23.000 casi / 750 d.
- Florida: 21.000 casi / 520 d.
- Arizona (soo Hot...): 3.800 casi/ 131 d.
Ok. L’Arizona l’ho inserita per questioni di “affetto”, ma non è così popolosa. California, Florida e stato di New York si.
Ma vediamo un altro stato molto popoloso:
- Texas: 14.000 / 318

Ok. C’entra la conformazione del territorio e le distanze. Vediamo
Uno stato con una grande città come Detroit ma molto più freddo:
- Michigan: 25.000 / 1.600

Guardiamo la death rates by state (x 100k)?
- California: 1
- Florida: 2
- Texas: 1
- New York: 32
- Michigan: 10
- Arizona: 1

It's hard to capture the absence of activity. How do you show something that is missing? These wonderful @reuters pictures do just that.

With 415 #Delegates at stake, the #CaliforniaPrimary represented the biggest haul in the country.

@EpochTimes spoke to voters in #OrangeCounty, #SanFrancisco County, and Santa Clara County as they entered the voting centers. (Thread👇) theepochtimes.com/a-talk-with-vo…
Many voters said they would support the Democrats in the general election even if their candidates lose the nomination.

#Healthcare was a top issue for many, and several older voters said that #Biden’s experience as vice president made them choose him.
Sen. @BernieSanders won #California with just over a million votes statewide, and @JoeBiden trailed him with about 740,000 votes.

About 1.5 million turned out to vote for Trump, who won the Republican primary.

A good news story to start 2020: My wife and I successfully moved from #Sanfrancisco to #Miami, driving over 3,200 miles -- practically #London to #Cairo. She drove the '97 RAV4 w/ the #pug & I had the moving van w/ the #cat . This is what #utsalumni can accomplish!

En 2015 se trataban apenas el 20% de los líquidos cloacales de todo el país generando inconvenientes en la salud y el ambiente. Nos comprometimos a duplicar el número e iniciamos un plan que incluye 50 nuevas plantas de tratamiento en toda Argentina. Algunos ejemplos 👉🏻
En 2016 pusimos en marcha la obra #SistemaRiachuelo que beneficiará a 4.3 millones de vecinos brindando cloacas por primera vez a un millón y medio. La obra más grande de saneamiento de los últimos 70 años en el país.
En #Neuquén ya terminamos obras que duplican la capacidad de tratamiento. Villa La Angostura ya tiene su primer planta de tratamiento y la ciudad de Neuquén la planta más grande de la Patagonia.

As far as I can tell #SanFrancisco has only issued one (1) building permit for a 10+ unit building based on an application received since Jan 1, 2017. (Barack Obama was president then, remember him?)
That permit was issued for 975 Bryant Street, which replaced an industrial building with what will someday become a 185-unit mixed-use building. (See Application #20170630808). Trammel Crow's website says it's in "pre-construction".
There's backstory: the parcel owner first sought planning permits in 2015 (twice) and then (presumably successfully in 2017). So this is more like a 4+ year process than a 2+ year process. But what happens after the building permit application?

#tRrump’s ‘Go Back’ comment is, of course, nothing new for most of us who are brown-skinned, @nytimes
What's new is that the #racist comment is from the #POTUS!

As one who has engaged with the public, I have had my share
(thread)
The best example is this.
In 2016, after attending @theAAG annual meeting in #SanFrancisco, and after observing the #homelessness there, I wrote about the issue and related it to the local conditions here in #Eugene
An important public policy topic, yes?
Oh, but I was a brown-skinned #immigrant who was "complaining" ... how dare I try to make my country better by writing about the plight of the homeless!
The responses came.
Most didn't want to help solve the problem.But to call out my "otherness"

🇺🇸President Trump relaxed & jokes with media, asking if he should keep going. He's then asked about the decision to not strike IRAN and he explains he had many alternative strike targets.

"WE HAVE THE GREATEST MILITARY IN THE WORLD-THEY ARE LETHAL"
@realDonaldTrump #QAnon
🇺🇸"I think John Kerry violated the LOGAN ACT"
President Trump then mockingly re-enacts conversations Kerry (might have?) had with IRAN & how KERRY'S interference has delayed progress in negotiations.

🇺🇸POTUS spoke to the Crown Prince of 🇸🇦Saudi Arabia about the murder of Jamal Khashoggi & was told there's been 13 arrests and more to come. He then talks about C_A intelligence & declass.👌🏽

Some of my followers are asking "Charles haven't you changed your core beliefs over the last 20 yrs?" The answer is NO. A core belief isn't what you do with your hair or the clothes you wear. Core beliefs are deep, long lasting & revealing of character.
So 20 yrs ago I didn't think gov't had a right to control a woman's uterus or her decision to have an intimate relationship with another woman or a man's decision to be intimate with a man. I didn't think of any of this as what @JKenney called a "culture of death"
For me, human beings must have sovereignty over their personal decisions, having or not halving children, having intimacy and marriage with opposite or same. These are core beliefs that I has 20 yrs ago . They will never change.

Some #Albertans who have been riding with me for decades are still asking why I interrupted @JKenney as often as I did Tuesday night. Will tell you exactly what I told Andrea Montgomery today on the #AlbertaMorningNews @770CHQR and @630CHED
Whether you're a Flames or Oilers fan You want your guy to rag that puck for as long as possible on the penalty kill. @JKenney insisted on ragging the puck with generic meaningless political rhetoric when the public wanted answers on serious moral questions. Have hosted Kenney
on many shows when i have given him 3 - 5 minutes for an answer. But that's because he's an eloquent speaker when there is moral principle, purpose & power in his language. There was none coming from him as he kept ragging that puck. I interrupted him to force him to focus on

So a few people have asked me about my reaction to @DoloresHuerta endorsing @KamalaHarris for her Presidential campaign in 2020. My thoughts on the matter and given with as much respect as I can give, as a person with Mexican family, and not quite fluent in Spanish. #DesculpaMe
1) @DoloresHuerta is a titan in Central Valley politics and for Mexican-Americans everywhere. She is often overlooked in comparison with #CesarChavez, but my understanding is that Dolores was more of the logistics of the @UFWF while #Cesar provided the #Vision. Sounds familiar!
2) In fact, my own Grandmother (mother’s mother) says that she marched with both @DoloresHuerta and #CesarChavez in the 1970’s. I recall the last time I asked her about her stories, I told her that I heard Dolores was fierce #AF. She concurred unequivocally.

0/ 'Twas very much 'M&A Mondays' in the #crypto/#blockchain space, with not one, not two, but *three* announcements revealing the coming together of two previously discrete projects.

A heap of other developments took place on Monday, too, so let's get into it, shall we?
1/ 🐱 @Efolioapp - a P2P marketplace to buy and sell #crypto tokens - unveiled its solution that brings English auctions (as distinct from Dutch auctions) to @0xProject [ $ZRX ]!

Bid for NFTs with either an #ERC20- and #ERC721-compliant token. Neat! medium.com/@emoonmarket/0…
2/ 📣 Per @Cheddar, Facebook hired most of the @Chainspace_io team; its first major 'acqui-hire’ in the #crypto space.

Who is Chainspace? A #blockchain startup self-described as "a planetary scale smart contracts platform." cheddar.com/videos/faceboo…

0/ 'Twas all happening on Wednesday in the world of #crypto/#blockchain! Below, I've put together a 25-part thread featuring all the best happenings in the space from the past day or so. Let's do this!
1a/ ⚖️ @MakerDAO [ $MKR / $DAI ] announced the MakerDAO Foundation underwent a major restructuring. Why? To "provide stronger support to help the Dai Credit system navigate an increasingly complex and ever-changing regulatory and competitive landscape." medium.com/makerdao/intro…
1b/ Ⓜ️ All Maker-related entities are part of the Maker Ecosystem Growth Group, a conglomerate of subsidiaries housed under the Cayman Islands-domiciled Maker Ecosystem Growth Foundation. It's temporary and "will dissolve once MakerDAO has achieved its decentralization goals."
