🚨BREAKING: @CDCgov confirms that a 2nd US patient has #coronavirus: the 1st is in #Seattle, the 2nd is a woman in #Chicago who had traveled to #Wuhan.

#China quarantined 14 cities, affecting 48 million people.

This is just the beginning...

@CDCgov @thespybrief I spent years developing an #Ebola treatment. Experts are concerned about this #coronovirus, because it's VERY contagious and appears to cause severe disease. Reports from #China a lagging indicators: the virus is spreading quickly, and people are still hospitalized/critical.
@CDCgov @thespybrief Expect this "Novel #coronavirus" to be named soon (perhaps #Wuhan-Cov?). Other recent #coronavirus outbreaks were caused by SARS, MERS-CoV.

Excellent resources to monitor the #CoronavirusOutbreak:

#Amazon has spent a breathtaking $1.5 million total so far in a little #Seattle City Council race, all to defeat council member @@cmkshama who had the audacity to hope Amazon would pay the $275-a-head tax to create affordable housing in the city.…
@cmkshama Remember, it was #Amazon who created the unaffordable housing crisis to begin with. Other big tech firms including Apple, Microsoft and Facebook have committed over $1 billion for affordable housing.…

I want to tell the story of how this song came to be in my hands, and how it came to be shared at the #Seattle @NeverAgainAction today.
About two months, @EgSophie mentioned that she and some of her friends were putting together a #JewsAgainstICE action in New Jersey and asked me if I'd like to come out and help with music.

I said "yes," and jumped on a plane.

This is what happened next:…
@EgSophie Shortly thereafter, I got an email from @imeanwhat. Abe is a filmmaker who is working on a documentary about his Uncle Wolf, a composer and conductor who ran the Vilna Ghetto symphony orchestra.

Wolf died in a concentration camp.

But his music lives on:

Seattle is Dying

#FixIt . @mayormcginn

Retired Seattle Police Officer: "We're running a concentration camp without barbed wire up to and including the medical that experiment of poisoning these people
with drugs. I I don't know how else to put it and it's infuriating!
Every camp I walk into there was a weapon, multiple weapons. I found modified weapons. I was constantly on the side of the road talking to people that were swinging machetes, holding an axe, armed with knives.

In the last few months, propelled into the spotlight by far-Right media like InfoWars, a collection of Alt-Right, neo-Nazi, and Proud Boy groups have set their sites on attacking #dragqueenstoryhour - with some groups now even pushing for doxxing parents.…
#dragqueenstoryhour is a non-profit of over 35 chapters across the US and made up of volunteers who are trained and given background checks. The goal of the group is to create a space of tolerance and acceptance that they hope will translate into future generations making change.
One volunteer said of the group: “This year we celebrated 50 years of Pride, and knowing that there [are] so many drag queens, to many transgenders, so many lesbians, so many gay people getting killed…just for being who they are…we don’t want that to continue.”

The #DreamLifter is a one-of-a-kind machine. There are only 4 operational in the world, and unlike her sisters, she has a few quirks singular to her.. As you board, the first one reveals itself.. You board and deplane using the R1 door instead of the L1 like on a regular #B747
The #cockpit is the same as a regular #B747, and so the pre-#flight is identical. We send for the route by datalink and it’s automatically loaded into our Flight Management System, so all we do is check against the release, compare, confirm and execute..
Now, what really makes the #DreamLifter so special? Unlike any other #B747, these 4 jets were modified to be loaded via a swing-tail that opens using a specialized support system only available in #Seattle, #Charleston, #Taranto and #Nagoya..

Here’s an assessment of what it’s like to file a non-emergency police report with the @SeattlePD
First off BZ to the officers of the North Precinct. They were professional and took time to answer questions. The report process was thorough and fair. The officers I spoke to were friendly and knowledgeable.
The waiting room and accommodations were clean and inviting. I did not feel put off or that I was wasting anyone’s time.

I’m trying to turn threats against me into a positive by asking this: #Seattle how do we discuss race and racism?
I was at @komo yesterday that was locked down bc of threats and a colleague at one of the local tv stations said they got a call today that was anti-Semitic (being kind). So honestly we have a problem here.
I’ve sat down with several people who write about local Seattle politics and discussed this. None seemed the least bit interested in writing about race and politics.

* bar the children of parents (but honestly I’d like to bar their parents as well).

I propose we use private contractors to remove snow and treat for ice. It would cost little - 0 in infrastructure, while having a solution in place to keep our roads usable in inclement weather.
To be clear this would augment the 35 “plows” that #seattle uses for major roadways and would be used to clear residential streets.
Right now residential streets are untreated and many are impassable.

#Seattle won’t plow or treat residential streets — makes it hard for teachers, first responders, small businesses workers and elderly and disabled residents to get around. This isn’t acceptable for a city with the 11th largest economy.
How could we solve this you ask? What about using independent snow removal for residential streets and, you know, maybe accepting climate change is real and a city should have a standard of not shutting for weather.
“But it only snows every 10 years in #Seattle.” Wow if only we could predict weather with such certainty especially with climate change and global warming very real. Im not into avoiding planning in favor of unsupported data.

Hey @SeattlePD is there a service for at-risk adults who are trying to get to a shelter? I’m at the @bartelldrugs on Queen Anne with a lovely woman woman trying to get Colonel Scott shelter. If anyone can help hit me up.
Jo Pingston is a lovely lady who’s been in #seattle for a bit. She said missed her community meal.
We’re calling non-emergency line and we’ve called her housing. I bought her some food and drink and we’ll get her home! Im here waiting with her.

This was just 2” of snow and 5 days later #Seattle still has untreated roads — not to mention sidewalks. #growupseattle
And yes sidewalks on highland Ave are great for curling but not for walking. 🙄
So we have seasonal roads now 🤔

I’ve never witnessed anything quite like Seattle grocery stores when locals are preparing to brave 4-5 inches of snow.
Like, people are stocking up on emergency tomatoes and leaving water jugs on the shelves.
People are buying gardening shovels in droves.
