The recent @uscensusbureau report on poverty shows a dramatic decline in 2021. This decline is in part due to the organizing of the #poorpeoplescampaign (&others) for policies that center the poor. Problems that remain are in part because those policies have so far been temporary Image of the Poor People's and Low Wage Workers Mass Assembl
Make sure to look at the #supplementalpovertymeasure numbers. The #SPM is a much better measure than the #OPM because it accounts for govt programs, common expenses and differences in costs of living. This is the measure we focus on.
Although better, the SPM threshold is still too low: for a 2-adult, 2-child household, the SPM threshold was about $31k. $31k is just 1/3 of what this family would need to live in Chicago. It's 1/2 of what they would need to live in Holmes County, MS.

Pour ceux qui aurait manqué cette info, 1 étude menée sur toute la population 🇫🇷 ne montre pas d’association entre vaccins ARNm (Pfizer et Moderna) et événements cardiovasculaires (infarctus, AVC, embolie pulmonaire).

Pensées vers tous les politiques qui choisissent de soutenir une poignée d'irréductibles gaulois (qu'ils ne sont en aucun cas) persuadés d'être dans le vrai en ayant refusé la vaccination obligatoire ds leur profession.
Rien que l'inculture scientifique de ces soignants /
pompiers méritent qu'ils restent sur le ban de touche et envisagent une reconversion professionnelle ou d'autres engagements pour les volontaires.
Au passage, #jesoutiensBrocardi et @PompiersFR encore et toujours.

Mit Erscheinen des #IPCC-Berichts ist heute einer der seltenen Tage, an denen die #Klimakatastrophe, ihr Ausmaß und die notwendigen politischen Maßnahmen ein klein wenig mediale Aufmerksamkeit bekommt.

Aber make no mistake: Die gleichen Medienhäuser, die uns heute vermitteln,
dass "sofortige und ehrgeizigere Maßnahmen zur Bewältigung der Klimarisiken" dringend geboten und "halbe Sachen keine Option mehr sind" (#SPM) werden in 1-2 Tagen wieder zu ihrem eigenen Business as usual übergehen.
Dann kriegen wir wieder bescheuerte Coverstories zur "Kostenfalle Klimaschutz" und völlig realitätsentkoppelte "konservative" Kolumnen, in denen steht, dass pariskonformer Klimaschutz demokratiefeindlich und sowieso völlig unmöglich wäre.

Today the #IPCC #WGII report for #AR6 (6th Assessment Report) is released. But there seems to be much confusion about the report, and the document that was just negotiated by member countries during the last two weeks. A quick explainer thread🧵👇🏿👇🏼#ClimateReport
The full 'report' of #IPCC's Working Group II on 'Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability' contains 18 chapters and 7 cross-chapter papers. Chapters: 1 intro, 7 regional, 7 thematic/sectoral, 3 synthesis ch focussing on risk, adaptation and #climateresilientdevelopment.
The #IPCC #WGII Summary for Policymakers (SPM) accompanies the report and is a shorter document (35pp in Word) that brings together the findings across the entire WGII report with an emphasis on observed and projected impacts, adaptation and climate resilient development

⚠️ Comença el #PleExtraordinariSPM sobre ordenances fiscals per al proper #2022. Te l'expliqem aquí 👇🏽
💰 Els impostos són la contribució de tota la ciutadania a l'equilibri social.
Aporten part del capital que l’ @ajuntamentSPM necessita per donar els #serveispúblics amb la màxima qualitat.
La discussió de si 📈 l’increment és elevat o no, no és la manera de valorar-les.
Parlem de #taxajusta⚖️amb la @mvinyallonga
'Una taxa justa és la que es fa servir per donar un servei de qualitat, que millora el municipi.
Però quan la taxa no serveix per millorar el servei, per praxi deficient, no cal parlar de preus. Cal parlar de la deficiència del servei'

Ik heb een vertaling gemaakt van de Summary for Policymakers (samenvatting voor beleidsmakers) van het nieuwe #IPCC-rapport. Die staat hieronder weergegeven in de volgende 15 tweets. Draadje.👇
A. De huidige staat van het klimaat
A.1. Het is overduidelijk dat het klimaat is opgewarmd door de mens. Dat heeft in de hele wereld al grote veranderingen veroorzaakt in de atmosfeer, in de oceanen, arctische regio’s en natuurlijke gebieden.
A.2. De klimaatverandering is ongekend groot en is groter dan ze in vele duizenden jaren is geweest.
A.3. De klimaatverandering heeft effect op veel weersextremen en het bewijs daarvoor is sterker dan bij het vorige rapport in 2014.

La crise du COVID sur une île (française !) de 6300 habitants : Saint Pierre Et Miquelon 🇵🇲 . L'archipel est relativement épargné par la crise depuis le début : ils ont eut un confinement moins longs, mais depuis vivent ~ pareil. (1/14).
#SPM #975 ... Saint Pierre Et Miquelon vu...
Il y a eut quelques cas mais à chaque fois la quatorzaine ou septaine obligatoire a fonctionné : la maladie ne s'est pas propagée à la population. Cet été suite à un cas les festivité du 14 juillet et du reste de l'été avait été annulées, mais pareil le virus ne circule pas. Image
Et là bam en janvier : deux médecins venant de métropole vont faire une bouffe avec un autre médecin (et d'autres) pendant leur septaine. Et oui : ils étaient infectés et transmettent la COVID-19 aux invités. L'un d'eux est un élève au lycée de St Pierre. 8 cas positifs ...
