June 23 is the anniversary of #TitleIX; that wonderful law un #USA 🇺🇸 that enabled me to get my scholarship & education.
To commemorate I will demonstrate the difference in argument between those who wish to usurp women’s #sports and women like me who fight to preserve it.

Anyone who knows me I am a HUGE sports fanatic. Cricket, American Football, Baseball, NBA basketball, March Madness, Tennis, mainly Wimbledon/US Open, Golf, specially the Masters.

#sports #Covid
But I CANNOT for the life of me understand why there is a rush to start competitive sports!

Let's start with NFL: The Dallas Cowboys and the Houston Texans have had players test positive. The star Running Back Ezekiel Elliot is one of them!

My beloved Philadelphia Phillies had to abandon camp after 8 members of the team, players and staff combined, tested positive. That also resulted in the Toronto Blue Jays having to shut down their camp:

The years 2015-2020 have revealed an insidious disregard for the #female category by #OlympicGames @olympics executives and their corporate sponsors.
Male (XY) 🧬athletes now allowed into XX events.
Time to take stock re #women’s #sports.
Where did we begin?
Where are we going?
Our story begins in the Egyptian Middle Kingdom (2000 B.C.)
Forms of women’s competition were somewhat different than we experience in 2020 A.D.
Contests revolved around two key aspects of #Egyptian life:
1. Food acquisition- #hunting & #fishing
2. Entertaining - #acrobatics
True #sports for women really began in Ancient Greece during the Classical period (400 B.C.). Unmarried girls had their own private competitions - also at Olympia every 4years.
These were separate from the men’s games.
The festivals were held in honour of Hera, wife of Zeus.

@Muttmere1 @BillieJeanKing @GovernorLittle @Martina @sharrond62 Two points
1. It’s not ethical.
2. It’s not #sports

See elaboration in tweets below⬇️
@Muttmere1 @BillieJeanKing @GovernorLittle @Martina @sharrond62 1/ I use “ethical” rather than invoking “fairness”, because of the predictable retort “who said life would be fair”. Having males in female sports goes beyond natural unfairness (typical skill variation)- it is a purposeful decision to disadvantage 50% of #Athlete population
@Muttmere1 @BillieJeanKing @GovernorLittle @Martina @sharrond62 2/ It’s not #sports.
In sports we have distinct categories based upon clearly defined boundaries so that the outcome has a specific meaning.
Example: Automobile racing.
👉🏼There would be no meaning to a race if a F1 🏎 would be allowed into #NASCAR race.
Different structures.

So @aaron_s_fox jumped the gate on me :) w/ a thread on the #ACL #injury & #AFLW #sport #womanprobs conversation & he did a great job but I'd like my perspective to come in that special 'tone' I may be known for in presentations... My first twitter thread! Expect sarcasm and gifs
1st, I posted my perspective on #injury #women #athlete #development #biomechanics in another tweet, if you missed it, short editorial: bit.ly/3a5Al1x & presentation bit.ly/32hbogF Read those after this thread of fun, I hope the GIFs help you "hear" my tone :)
I’ve seen a bit about #ACL #injury and #menstrualcycles including news stories about organisations ready to study the menstrual cycle and #training - Let me give you some basic information to help you #factcheck before you start #cheering or #praising

There's been a story in a UK tabloid (that I won't name), and @BBCRadio4 of all places; that #rocket #salad causes #cancer due to high levels of #nitrates in the leaves. Here's my take, and what's wrong with the thinking behind it.

A thread.

1/12
It's true, #rocket #leaves are hyperaccumulators of #nitrates ; this isn't anything new. It's been known for a long time. Other crops with high nitrate content include #spinach and #watercress

2/12
Nitrate content varies according to where the #crop is grown, and is closely tied to the soil #plants are grown in, and the amount of #light they receive. Rocket leaves grown in #winter have higher nitrate content than those grown in #summer

1. Starting a thread on #sportsrorts developments

Attorney General reviewing whether @senbmckenzie’s grants were even LEGAL!

My guess, Govt worried about a class action by groups scammed by the Govt in the cause of the Libs-Nats self interest .

sbs.com.au/news/attorney-…
2. Note the blatant conflict of interest in Christian Porter reviewing the legality of grants his electorate received. Morrison is becoming more Trumpian by the day.

sbs.com.au/news/attorney-…
3. @jacksongs on the case for the people.
Sports group in Morrison electorate boasted of grant before Govt announced. Just like Ros Kelly’s #sportsrorts! He says told group matter ‘for independent experts to assess’. Lying or @senbmckenzie kept him in dark

#Russia #Moscow #Spain #Madrid
What dose this say?

The #Iran forbidds his #chess player to travel to the championship in #Moscow. This latest spell by the #Iranian Ministry of #Sports is in response to an incident in mid-December during a tournament in #Spain.
Grandmasters Parham #Maghsoodloo and Amin #Tabatabaei had #played against an #Israeli #FIDE champion in a blitz tournament. Competition with #Israelis has been banned from #Iranian athletes for 36 years.
Now the best chess player of #Iran Alireza #Firouzja rejects this ban of the #Mullahs and wants to play in #Moskau under #FIDE flag. #IranProtests

A running thread of things that @Twitter could do to unlock value for users. Will add to overtime. Please feel free to retweet and reply with your own, most of these below I have just taken and summarized from others. In no particular order. 1/♾ #JustKidding 🤔 or am I?
@Twitter I drafted a tweet on my phone but of course, can't access "draft's" on the desktop. So lets maybe start there. The desktop and @Tweetdeck version should be MORE robust than the mobile app not less. Tweetdeck, for example, has no bookmarks, emoji's, live video, polls, gif's, etc
@Twitter @TweetDeck There are SO MANY great meaningful quotes, threads, replies, and conversations that vanish into the Twitter ether, drowned out by hot takes, snark, and 280 character riffs on what some influencer or politician just did. Find a way to collect and resurface this treasure trove.

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.

Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

IJP is disappointed, but not surprised by the treatment of @caster800m and other Black and Brown intersex athletes. We release this statement in support of her and other athletes:
On behalf of the Intersex Justice Project, we are saddened and outraged by the decision of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) which ruled that “DSD regulations are discriminatory but that, on the basis of the evidence submitted by the parties, such discrimination
is a necessary, reasonable and proportionate means of achieving the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) aim of preserving the integrity of female athletics in the restricted events.”

How to make more money in your #business using sales funnels:

1. Build out a funnel that has 2 up sells and 2 down sells
2. Bring the customer through the journey shown in the picture
3. Profit!

I will explain in this thread:
NOTE: These are just examples 😎
Step 1. Say you sell a #sports water bottle for $19, why not also offer a gym bag or a diet/workout plan course for $27? (up sell #1) If the person says no, offer them a head sweat band for $9.95 (down sell #1)
Continue this process with a second up sell and a down sell to go with that and you can increase you customer #value by quite a lot. But let's do some math:

Russia and Iran are engaged in disinformation campaigns aimed at US citizens. Twitter just released over 10 million tweets from over 4500 Russian and Iranian accounts engaged in influence operations dating back to 2009. We've analyzed the data. Here's what you need to know...
Russia's influence operations are far-reaching, aimed at a number of countries. This, of course, includes ops aimed at US voters in 2016, but also includes their own people. 58 Russian-language accounts tweeted regional "news" related to Crimea, Syria, and other military action.
44 US-directed local "news" accounts amassed over half a million followers. By using local-sounding news source names, they were able to dupe Americans from *other* regions to share what they thought was authentic news.
